Former Massachusetts governor and failed president candidate Mitt Romney took opportunity to weigh in on the whole Roy Moore matter — the one that finds him ensnarled in a web of allegations of sexual improprieties with underage and young girls — and call for the former Alabama judge to immediately “step aside” and abandon his Senate aspirations. No need to wait on proof. To Romney, the allegations are bad enough. “Innocent until proven guilty is for criminal convictions, not elections,” he said, The Hill reported. (Snip) Indeed, Several other Republicans have come forward to say or suggest the same as
Comments: The GOPe really, really does not want Roy Moore in the US Senate. Far preferable for them to have a RINO or a Democrat to keep their gravy wagon rolling.
This whole attack is orchestrated by Romney, McConnell, and McCain. I think all of them are unfit for office, so I will go with Moore. Even though I do not know Moore, I know these guys, and that they are very malicious, when anyone threatens their power.
No surprise. More evidence that the GOP is ´unfit to govern´, and we need a new party not dependent on the UniParty Establishment special interests and donors. Legit populist conservatives like Freedom Caucus members need to help establish it, and switch to give it some ´gravitas´.
By so cavalierly bypassing Moore´s due-process right to be presumed innocent of allegations until proven guilty (especially for OLD allegations having no evidence), Mitt shows himself to be unfit for office.
Mitt never disappoints me. He always does exactly what is best for his corporate handlers. Once he shows why he´s worse than the worst democrats, who at least are blatantly evil. He tries to hide it, but it always shines through. He´s scum.
So predictable. Of course Romney would open up his mouth and show his bias. Who will be next? The Bushes? Lindsey Graham? This has nothing to do with a crime, and everything to do with destroying a Conservative Christian.
Washington is a members-only club. We aren´t welcome.
Who asked you, you rino pond scum sucker?! Take another dive, not re the presidency, this time but in a sand box. Once there, pound sand! Go put some chapstick or lipstick if you prefer, on some more democrat boots and have at it, you bastid.
I was stunned when Mitt sucked up to President Trump, trying to get the SoS job. You´d think he would have kept his head down after the way he attacked Trump during the primaries. Some people are shameless. I think Trump just played with Romney to see how far he could make him go.
Mitt is saying the Democrats can now claim anything against their GOP opponents, and those claims must now be deemed accurate, and thus, remove that person from consideration for office.
IF he did any of the alleged claims, it would indicate a tendency to be attracted to under-aged girls, and something that likely would be on-going. Likely would have been known by now, after so much time in office, I would presume.
Romney could have just as easily kept his mouth shut on this particular situation and not lost anything. But no, he just had to say something, and now he´s turned more people off and dug his hole deeper. He´s tone-deaf.
My guess is McCain is the ring leader of the anti Trump movement. McConnell, Flake, Romney, the Bushies, are his little puppets. Don’t forget Romney invited everyone but Trump to his so called meetings at his retreat during the primaries.
The swamp is in high gear. They failed to stop Trump, now they are damned determined to destroy Moore before he can win. All the more why we need to destroy the Establishment now before they damage our country any further.
Mitt Romney continues to prove those of us who pointed out the man is and always has been a bought and paid for blue blood Republican Establishment huckster correct.
Notice it´s the same crowd of #NeverTrumpChumps who have been doing everything they can to undermine the Trump Administration whining now. They will oppose anyone who will work with President Trump to get things done.
Mitt, why didn´t you blast Harry Reid as "unfit for office" after he told that lie about you that possibly caused you to lose in 2012?
The other day, I was watching that awful video on youtube when Mitt Romney made that big BS statement about Donald J Trump back in 2016 - so incredible a revelation to me, like the Bushes - what a trashy guy Romney is and what a terrible advertisment for Mormons - why do they allow people like Romney and Harry Reid to be go along, never scolding them, never calling them out.
Utah, I hope you don´t let Romney get that job as Senator - surely you must have better people, of higher moral character and integrity.
Also, it looked to me like he was either wearing a toupee or using Grecian Formula - check it out!
If Mitt had taken off his gloves running against obama he might have won.
I still have no clue what the anti-Trumpsters have against the president other than they think he is ruining their reputation as the guys who act better than democrats. Some one clue them into the fact that that attitude is exactly why we support the president adamantly. And some of us like me actually like the media being outed as they are being.
Going back to the status quo isn´t going to happen IMO and the fact that Mitt said he could deal with Clinton makes his own stance on right and wrong suspect.
The establishment are doing this on purpose to take back the party at the risk of the country? They overestimate what they can do after the GOP take down of our own party majority and underestimate the boycotting mood of the frustrated majority of the working class.
I can understand if they are trying to discourage any more hard-line right GOP since they may not be able to be elected and in that case the folks who are cheering for the likes of Roy Moore had better come out to the polls broken glass or the dems will take Congress and President Trump will deal with the dems, IMO. Constant vigilance?
The Mormons don´t seem to have much use for Southern Christians. Romney is a swamp creature, a backstabbing McCain with no backbone. Sure, he´ll attack GOPs but never go after socialists because he is one of them.
A Department of Homeland Security official resigned Thursday after a report revealed he had made racist remarks in past radio interviews. The Rev. Jamie Johnson, director of the Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships at DHS, said in a 2008 radio show that the black community had turned “America´s major cities into slums because of laziness, drug use and sexual promiscuity.” (Snip) In another discussion, Johnson said President George W. Bush made a “critical mistake” after the Sept. 11 terror attacks when he called Islam a religion of peace. “People who want a moderate version of Islam worldwide, the Islam that
Embattled Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore on Thursday said allegations that he sexually harassed women and girls won’t push him out of the race, and instead called on the GOP’s Senate leader to step down. Moore once again forcefully denied the accusations, and cut ties to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who had called on Moore to step aside. “Many of you have recognized that this is an effort by Mitch McConnell and his cronies to steal this election from the people of Alabama, and they will not stand for it,” Moore told reporters. “I want to tell you
Des Moines, Iowa — As he tows a 96-square-foot house around Des Moines, Joe Stevens is overwhelmed by the intense, sometimes tearful support he receives from churches, schools and service groups for his plan to use the trendy little structures to help homeless people. But when Stevens actually tried to create a village of the homes in Iowa’s largest city, the response was far different. (Snip) In at least a dozen cases across the nation, neighbors organized to stop tiny house projects, including in Charlotte, North Carolina; Nashville, Tennessee; San Jose, California; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Tallahassee, Florida; and Bend, Oregon.
Target Corp.’s holiday-quarter profit forecast missed analyst expectations, sending its shares down 10 percent on Wednesday as hopes faded that the retailer would make a shopping season comeback. Target has missed Wall Street’s fourth-quarter profit expectations for the past two years. It is gearing up for the holidays by cutting prices and introducing delivery options to compete with Wal-Mart and online sellers, moves that can lure customers but crimp margins. (Snip) “This is still a very competitive environment, and Target has no choice but to respond to that.. the problem is that Wall Street don’t necessarily understand
An illegal immigrant was charged this week in the death of a New York socialite who was found bludgeoned to death in her hilltop estate two years ago, the end result of an elaborate international manhunt. Esdras Marroquin Gomez, 32, pleaded not guilty Monday at his arraignment on a murder charge in the death of 83-year-old Lois Colley, according to the Westchester County district attorney´s office, who said he was indicted by a grand jury last year. "The murder scene was horrendous," Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino said. "From our evaluation, we believe the murder weapon was a home fire
A special Haitian Senate commission is accusing more than a dozen former government officials and heads of private firms of embezzling $2 billion in Venezuelan oil loans — money that could have helped the country rebuild after its devastating earthquake in 2010. An anti-corruption investigation concluded that charges should be filed against two former prime ministers, several ex-ministers and the owners of private firms on grounds they misappropriated and embezzled money that left post-quake Haiti with unfinished government buildings, poorly constructed housing and overpriced public works contracts. (Snip) “It can be declared that the PETROCARIBE has been the object of embezzlement,
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Monday called on Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore to step aside, hours after a new accuser came forward alleging Moore sexually assaulted her when she was a teenager. “If he continues this will not end well for Mr. Moore,” Graham tweeted. (Snip) Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), on Monday called for Moore to “step aside,” and was followed by Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) and others. Some have suggested rallying a write-in campaign around Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.), who lost to Moore in a primary runoff in September.
More than six in ten babies born in London hospitals have foreign mothers who are either immigrants or visiting from abroad, official figures show. The evidence of the impact of immigration on the NHS was revealed in a breakdown of hospital records for last year published by the Office for National Statistics.

Monday on CNBC, former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL) said due to the sexual misconduct accusations leveled against former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, he should step aside in his campaign for the U.S. Senate. Bush said, “This is not a question of innocence or guilt like in a criminal proceeding, this is a question of what’s right and what’s wrong. Acknowledging that you’re dating teenagers when you’re 32-years old as assistant state attorney is wrong. It’s just plain wrong.” He added, “We need to stand for basic principles, and decency has to be one of those.
Republican Sen. Jeff Flake says he would rather see a Democrat win Alabama’s open Senate seat than accused teen groper Roy Moore — and compared the GOP candidate to former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. “If the choice is between Roy Moore and a Democrat, if I were in Alabama I’d vote for the Democrat,” the Arizona senator?, who recently announced he would not seek reelection,? said Monday. “There was a time when Republican senators would go and campaign for a Democrat rather than seat a Republican who would be so repugnant to the party and would diminish the party’s chances
Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden told an NBC audience Monday that he wouldn’t worry much about a potential 2020 matchup against President Trump because he’s “Middle-class Joe.” A hypothetical election showdown between Mr. Biden, 77, and Mr. Trump was laid before a “Megyn Kelly Today” audience to start the week when the former vice president said blue-collar voters “love” him more than the president. He said that while he is still unsure about future plans, his connection with middle-class voters is not in doubt. (Snip) “I understand the Rust Belt. Donald Trump has no notion what those people are
Former model Leann Tweeden accused Minnesota Sen. Al Franken Thursday of harassing her multiple times during a USO entertainment tour in the Middle East in 2006. Tweeden alleges that Franken, a writer for Saturday Night Live before he became a Senator, wrote a script that featured him kissing her, and harassed her during rehearsals, Tweeden writes for KABC.

You forcibly kissed me without my consent, grabbed my
Appointing a special counsel to probe her Uranium One deal would be “such an abuse of power” by the Trump administration, Hillary Clinton said Wednesday. The former Democratic presidential candidate said Trump risked dangerously politicizing the Justice Department, “like some authoritarian regime.” Clinton made the remarks in an interview with Mother Jones about reports this week that Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked two top prosecutors to look into the sale of a uranium company to Russian interests during Clinton’s time as secretary of state. President Trump and other Republicans allege ties between donations to the Clinton Foundation and the company sale, even though
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told attendees at a Wall Street Journal event on Tuesday that if Judge Roy Moore wins the Alabama Senate race in December, he will face a Senate ethics committee investigation. McConnell argued, “I think it’s safe to say that if he were to be sworn in, he would immediately be in a process before the Senate Ethics Committee. He would be sworn in and be asked to testify under oath as well, and it would be a rather unusual beginning.” The Washington Post released an article last week that alleged that Moore engaged in sexual
The allegations by five women that Roy Moore pursued and sexually molested teenage girls while he was in his 30s are disgusting, and disqualify him to serve in the United States Senate. Conservatives should be outraged at Moore for his loathsome conduct. But they should also be outraged at the man who helped put Moore on the ballot and is in the process of destroying the Trump presidency: Stephen K. Bannon. If the man Trump supported in the primary, Sen. Luther Strange, were the Republican nominee today, the GOP would be cruising to an easy victory in the Dec. 12 special

President Barack Obama mingled with Democratic leadership and high-powered donors at a New York City mansion on Tuesday, while raising money for the cash-strapped political party. Democrats are entering the 2018 election cycle amid financial struggles, with many donors declining to give after the party´s devastating loss to Donald Trump in 2016. Even the fundraising event on Tuesday night, which benefited the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the House Senate Victory Fund, drew few attendees, according to photos captured exclusively by DailyMail.com. The fundraiser was held at the palatial Upper East Side duplex owned by Dennis Mehiel, a former candidate
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said on Thursday that the Senate Ethics Committee should investigate Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) after his bribery and corruption trial ended in a mistrial. “Because of the seriousness of these charges, I am calling on the Senate Ethics committee to immediately investigate Senator Menendez’s actions which led to his indictment," McConnell said in a statement. He added that "Senator Menendez was indicted on numerous federal felonies. He is one of only twelve U.S. senators to have been indicted in our history." Menendez´s bribery and corruption trial ended with the judge declaring a mistrial on Thursday after jurors
Multiple NFL owners have engaged in discussions about removing Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones from the league. (Snip) The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday the following: The tension has grown so severe that the topic of removing Jones has been discussed by at least some owners, according to three people familiar with the matter. That type of drastic action would require the league showing conduct detrimental to the league—which is exactly the language the league used in its Nov. 15 letter to Jones’s attorney, David Boies. That letter was shared with all of the league’s 32 owners. It was

A Texas sheriff reportedly threatened to bring disorderly conduct charges against a truck driver for displaying a profane anti-Trump sticker on the rear window of the vehicle. Sheriff Troy Nehls in Ford Bend County told the Houston Chronicle that he had received many complaints about the sticker, which read: “F--- TRUMP AND F--- YOU FOR VOTING FOR HIM.” Nehls posted a photo of the truck and the offending sticker on his Facebook page with the following message: “I have received numerous calls regarding the offensive display on this truck as it is often seen along FM 359.
