Emil Guillermo: See Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) opening statement at the first day of the Gorsuch hearings.


If you missed it, Asian Americans have Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) to stand up to Judge Neil Gorsuch.

Gorsuch seemed to dwell on a metaphor that Sen. Ben Sasse   first alluded to in his own opening remarks, quoting Gorsuch talking about the importance of a judge’s robe that cloaks a sense of the real person under the robe, supposedly to assure independence and allegiance only to the facts.

But the robe analogy is limited. And the hearings are to make sure we know the man hiding in the robe. We know that Scalia didn’t hide much. Gorsuch deserves no pass because he says he’d be independent.

Gorsuch  sure tried to make it sound like he was some man of the people when he referred to his robe as “honest, black, and polyester.”

Well, polyester is unnatural, non-breathable,and totally fabricated.

In other words, fake.  Intractable.  Polyester is what it is. A chemical truth.

All things, we don’t want in a judge.

And judging from the news about  his decisions past, we’ve seen that Gorsuch has used the robe to turn a blind eye to compassionate, human and caring decisions.

Asian Americans will have Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) holding Gorsuch’s polyester robe to the fire.

If she does, note that polyester is flammable.

Let’s hope we see some flames.

If not, well, the Dems don’t seem to have a lot of fight in them to contest Gorsuch.

There was a real mix group of moderates and conservatives sitting  behind him including including Asians and African Americans.

But is the 49-year-old  Gorsuch the best guy to break the  4-4 deadlock weighing down SCOTUS?

Is he  the guy who we want dictating laws the next 30-40 years?

Here’s Hirono opening statement:

Emil Guillermo: The latest posts and thoughts from me!

Check the latest columns on SCOTUS, Unions, Brussels, Donald Trump and more on the AALDEF blog.


The Donald trails in Wisconsin. When he doesn’t talk about polls, what does he talk about? He is about the act of running. Policy? He’d rather outsource that.  By confusing capitalism with democracy, he isn’t taking the time to bother with the issues. If you heard his thoughts on abortion, nuclear weapons, and other things this week, then you know that the Donald sounded like he was channeling Gary Busey on “Celebrity Apprentice.”

BRUSSELS:  Here’s a picture of the Filipino American woman who was one of the victims.  She was with her husband and four children at the airport. They survived. She did not.
