Romney takes swipe at Trump
over ´s---hole´ comments, race relations

Fox News, by Bernini Chakraborty

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 1/15/2018 6:13:05 PM

Mitt Romney took a swipe at Donald Trump on Monday, condemning the crude comments the president was said to have made about Haiti and African countries -- calling them “inconsistent (with) America’s history and antithetical to American values” with a reference to Martin Luther King, Jr. The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race,” Romney tweeted. “The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/America’s history and antithetical to American values. May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & ‘charity for all.’”

Why shouldn´t we insist on the best? That´s the problem with "politicians". It took a political outsider to ask what now seems like an obvious question.

I had great hopes for Romney and was a strong supporter in 2012. He turned out to be a ´lightweight´ performer and not a strong Republican and not even a Conservative light.

He should run as a ´JFK´ Democrat.

Hey Mitt you might want to expand your news circle of influence beyond CNN and NBC. You might hear there are disputed accounts of what was said in that meeting.

If this is the best you can do I suggest you rethink running for Hatch´s Senate seat.

Romney knows the truth. But like any faithful d´rat, he wants to ´fly´ with the lies above it all. Apparently he thinks that will make him ´look better´ or more ´ethical´ somehow. If there was any doubt ...now we all know. Romney is just another s---rat with an R after his name. This should make McConnell want to spend another million to help him keep ´filling the swamp´ where some of the creatures are retiring.

I lived in the Dominican Republic in 1981. It was a hell hole then and has only gotten worse. It had a problem with illegal immigration from its next door neighbor Haiti. Haiti has gotten exponentially worse due to the earthquake. People don´t typically flee paradise. People do need to make their own countries better. Often I wonder if fighting is foreign war isn´t better then taking in millions of their people as refugees.

Romney is booster of global tyrants, encourages them to continue corruption and abuse of their citizens since US taxpayers will always be forced to take them in. Romney is the exact opposite of a decent, honest person. He´s very lucky he´s not in jail for running a $1 billion fraud in 2012. His son freely stated in Boston Globe and elsewhere that Romney had no interest in the job of pres., hated the whole idea of running, would´ve dropped out if he could have. Romney is a standard Sabotage Republican: to prevent us from getting the candidate we need and to constantly demean Republican voters. Romney, the GOP E, and the Democrat Party stand for exactly the same things: extreme globalism, open borders, endless foreign wars paid for by US taxpayers, massive free trade deals, and that the US is merely an ´idea,´ represents no geography, therefore US taxpayers are global slaves. Republican voters, half the electorate, still have no political party behind them.

He seems well dressed usually, I´ll give him that. As far as ´decent´ I think some of the companies he hollowed out and flipped would question that. Honest? Like saying one thing one day and retracting it before the day is out? Doesn´t lie? Come on, no one it that naive. He´s lying right now because he loves the pious ´high´ road and the press is encouraging this tool, till they tear the dope apart.

As far as cursing, no one knows what off the record tapes are hidden in leftist drawers, and if cursing is the new standard for holding office, every democrat I´ve known will have to leave.

I suppose if you need a lightweight, ´professional´ politician who is very rich and looks like a 1958 movie version of a President, Mittens is your man. Plus it will help him get his own PLANET after he dies according to his made in Palmyra, NY religion.

After time, there are certain adjectives that come to mind when national figures take it upon themselves to repeatedly criticize President Trump, adjectives such as arrogant, haughty, lofty, pompous, pretentious, and snobby. A Proverb also comes to mind, “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.” (Proverbs 16:18)

Referencing America’s history being “inconsistent and antithetical,” it would be wise to consider the words of former President Dwight D. Eisenhower: “Neither a wise man nor a brave man lies down on the tracks of history to wait for the train of the future to run over him.”

I feel as if I´ve waited my entire life for the wonderful release of no longer having the preening, self-aggrandizing, morally-superior, backstabbing John McCain in the Senate. Now, the minute he´s leaving, we´re going to get another one in the form of Romney? Please, Utah voters: don´t curse America the way Arizona voters have done for so long. You can do better! Just because he´s a big name doesn´t mean he should be handed the job on a silver platter so that he can put his own ego above your interests in Washington.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said Sunday that it´s in President Trump´s best interest to let special counsel Robert Mueller complete his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Rubio, appearing on "Fox News Sunday," echoed a number of his Republican colleagues in defending the special counsel in the face of Trump´s call last week for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to end the Mueller investigation. Rubio said the "best thing that can happen" for Trump and the country is for the investigation to "run the course and for all the truth to come out."

On November 8, 2016, the nation was gripped by the suspense of whether the outsider Donald J. Trump or the favorite Hillary Clinton would win the White House. At the same time, voters chose their states´ congressional representatives, while one third of the states also chose their two senators. While the major television networks held Super Bowl-size coverage, showing maps of all the states, disputed congressional districts, and exit polls trying to narrow down who may win the White House, what the nation did not know, and still does not know, is that Mitch McConnell had his own scheme for running

The tragedy of American conservatism is that its only electoral home is in a party most of whose funds come from those who agree with the globalist agenda and whose privileged position insulates them from its disastrous cultural consequences. In short, America’s corporate elite is making tons of money from globalism -- chiefly, mass immigration and manufacturing outsourcing -- while they experience no negative effects in their privileged and insular world. Oh sure, they advocate a bit of border protection here, a little improvement in US trade deals there, but basically they’re on board for free trade, relaxed borders and mass

Lamborghini Recalls Nearly

Lamborghini is recalling 5,900 supercars due to a possible fire risk. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration submitted a safety recall report for the iconic carmaker’s Aventador and Veneno models on Feb. 3. The notice suggests Aventadors filled with too much gas could exhaust the system “in certain driving conditions.” And if liquid fuel reaches the exhaust system, it could cause a fire. Car owners were notified of the recall Tuesday, Lamborghini told CNN—and is aware of seven cases of fires. The company added that it’s not aware of any injuries linked to the recall. Pricing for some of the recalled Aventadors starts

America has a nobility problem, and

Our Constitution forbids the creation of “titles of nobility.” The Framers thought it was important enough that the prohibition appears twice, once forbidding the federal government from doing it, and elsewhere extending the ban to the states. And Americans, to the extent that they give the question any thought at all, probably think that the ban works: After all, nobody’s squiring about the United States, sporting titles like Duke of Pennsylvania or Earl of Internal Revenue. But now I’m wondering if we don’t have a problem. First, Charles C.W. Cooke, a Brit who just recently became an American citizen, noted the practice of

Mr. Balderson appears to have squeaked out a win in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District, where Republicans previously won with “overwhelming numbers,” as the governor put it. That’s raising fears among Republicans about their prospects in swing districts this November. “What you had is a, I think, a message from

"The dirty war on the free press must end." That´s the idea behind an unusual editorial-writing initiative that has enlisted scores of newspapers across America. The Boston Globe has been contacting newspaper editorial boards and proposing a "coordinated response" to President Trump´s escalating "enemy of the people" rhetoric. "We propose to publish an editorial on August 16 on the dangers of the administration´s assault on the press and ask others to commit to publishing their own editorials on the same date," The Globe said in its pitch to fellow papers. The effort began just a few days ago.

Tennessee has carried out its first execution in nearly a decade using a controversial cocktail of drugs including a lethal ingredient described by the Supreme Court as "chemically burning at the stake". Billy Ray Irick, an inmate convicted of the 1985 rape and murder of seven-year-old Paula Dyer, received a three-drug injection on Thursday night after the US Supreme Court denied a final request to stay his execution. The lethal injection consisted of midazolam, used as sedative during an execution, a muscle-relaxer called vecuronium bromide, and compounded potassium chloride, the agent that stops the heart.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said Sunday that it´s in President Trump´s best interest to let special counsel Robert Mueller complete his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Rubio, appearing on "Fox News Sunday," echoed a number of his Republican colleagues in defending the special counsel in the face of Trump´s call last week for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to end the Mueller investigation. Rubio said the "best thing that can happen" for Trump and the country is for the investigation to "run the course and for all the truth to come out."

In an op-ed for the Boston Globe, Dani Rodrik, professor of international political economy at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, calls for what is effectively an academic blacklisting of members of the Trump administration, who, Rodrik contends, should be prohibited from receiving "even a semblance of honor or recognition" from the gatekeepers of higher learning. "Universities should uphold both free inquiry and the values of liberal democracy," writes Rodrik. "The first calls for unhindered exchange and interaction with Trumpist views. The second requires that the engagement be carefully calibrated, with not even a semblance of honor or recognition bestowed

A Gallup poll released Monday finds that – for the first time in the poll company’s data collection over the past decade – Democrats view socialism more positively than capitalism. The current survey demonstrates only 47 percent of Democrats view capitalism positively, a drop from 56 percent in 2016. Democrats’ view of socialism, however, has remained positive since 2010, with 57 percent having a positive perspective. Meanwhile, Republicans have remained positive about capitalism, with 71 percent taking that perspective and only 16 percent stating they have a positive view of socialism. The poll finds younger Americans have shown the greatest

I hate to break it to parents who just sent their college-admission-minded progeny to the Tibetan Plateau to churn yak butter, but the smartest summer I ever spent was in secretarial school. This was back when I was 17, and it wasn’t grist for an essay about a transformative communion with people outside my clique. I wasn’t ripping the blinders from my eyes. I was typing — hour upon hour, day after day, with my shoulders back and my spine straight and my hands just so. My mother had decided that she could no longer bear the tortured stutter of my peck-peck-pecking

Last year, when the kneeling controversy erupted like a California wildfire and the president launched a series of attacks on the NFL and Colin Kaepernick, I argued that cooler heads should prevail and a middle ground could be reached by both sides. Like the recovering alcoholic I am, I must have been in denial, hoping like a chronic gambler that Roger Goodell would do the right thing, or even just do his job. Obviously, I was wrong, because here we are again, my friends: another year, another round of protests. And all because the NFL and Roger Goodell have been

Omarosa Manigault Newman made headlines on Monday morning following her contentious Today show interview, but it was her bright yellow dress that baffled style critics and left them wondering what she was thinking. The 44-year-old former assistant to the president looked ready for a cocktail reception in a $550 one-shoulder lace dress featuring a sweetheart neckline and scalloped hem when she sat down with Savannah Guthrie in Studio 1A. Omarosa was promoting her tell-all White House memoir, ´Unhinged,´ but her Karen Millen outfit choice prompted swift backlash from those who felt it was ´incredibly inappropriate´ for the morning show and

Chuck Todd played a tape on NBC’S “Meet The Press” that appears to have Chief of Staff John Kelly firing Omarosa Manigault Newman. This is allegedly from the situation room in the White House.

Omarosa first spoke to Kelly when he was firing her, according to a tape of their conversation aired on “Meet the Press.” Watch this video, which has Kelly saying that he wanted the departure to be friendly, so there would be no

Open borders protesters and members of the left-wing anarchist group Antifa chanted death to America during a counter-protest in Washington, DC, on Sunday. In a video by Breitbart News’ Ian Mason, Antifa members and open borders activists can be heard and seen marching down streets throughout Washington, DC, demanding an end to the United States. “No border, no wall, no USA at all!” Antifa and open borders activists chanted. The mob of left-wing activists carried red flags and wore all black with masks and helmets on their heads as a counter-protest to the “Unite the Right 2” protest that took
