Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 2/14/2018 12:16:37 PM

(Video) - Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney is running for the Senate in Utah. Three people with direct knowledge of the plan tell the Associated Press Romney will formally launch his campaign in a video on Thursday. His first public appearance as a Senate candidate is scheduled for Friday in Utah. The people who provided the information asked for anonymity because they were not authorized to talk about Romney´s plans in advance. Romney, who is 70, is seeking to replace 83-year-old Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch, who is retiring after more than 40 years in the U.S. Senate. The former Massachusetts governor

Another possible future thorn in Trump´s side. This should make McCain happy, if he lives so long.

I would like to see a young, retired Military person run against Romney. I don´t think it´s a slam dunk that Romney is going to win!

RINO "Flutters Befuddled" Romney is not a shoe-in candidate, even in Utah. He has a whole lot of baggage.

Romney is a shoo-in. Trusted in Utah.

He will not embarrass Utah by undermining the president.

And he sure won´t be buying Russian type dossiers in underground intrigue like McCain.

Like Hatch he i smart enough to see the advantage the Trump wave gave for the implementing of GOP ideals and policies.

But will be interesting to watch (and listen to the anti-Mitt/Mormon resistance?)

He isn´t running as president in 2020 bar national tragedy that would impel him IMO. Mitt is establishment GOP. IMO he knows he cannot win the presidency as he called himself in 2012 or ´16, a "flawed candidate".

That flaw, his religion that carries 150 year old baggage in some GOP demographics, flips in Utah where character counts (sometimes more than it should when political parties collide? ie, render unto Caesar or vote for issues not persona? )

Why have an election?
Honor Romney by giving the seat to him by acculmation
All the democrats will vote for him and 30% of the republicans. He’s bounced all over the country from, Utah, Michigan, Massachusetts and could not even defeat Obama. Next he will be heading to Oregon..

Have you ever seen Utah skies at nightfall? Haunting. Strangely beautiful. The same for Moab, Zion, Monument Valley, the city of wide streets built around Tabernacle. Was Joseph Smith a false prophet, who deceived the world with a false Christianity, using "seer stones" and an "angel" named Moroni? Nobody cares. We are,as Obama told us a Post-Christian country. Everyone loves the great controlled moral character of the Mormon people. In Mormon scripture which, lets face it contradicts and supersedes the Bible for Mormons making all other Christians "idiots", lies a story of a man who comes along in the latter days "when America hangs by a thread" and saves it. Many believe Bishop [sic] Romney is the man. Who else could it be? Harry Reid? Even though he is tied in to the Bush money people and the same New World Order people who are "one resist tactic" away from breaking us and the world economy, what Utah true believer could not vote for Romney? He runs not only for the addiction to power i his DNA, not only what he intends to do to Trump. Its not where the money comes from which is just a means to an end. All his friends take that money, and he knows they are slimier than he is. Its his destiny, and the new Jerusalem in Missouri may depend on him. Of course, you can´t really discuss this. Its absurd. Its out of the canon of approved thinking.

Mitt´s been endorsed by Orrin Hatch who hired Rob Porter.
So, there´s that.
Utah authorities got reports about Rob Porter´s spousal abuse from more than one wife yet did nothing.
So, there´s that.
IF Americans in & out of Utah care about women they will vote "other-than-Mitt."

It was not his religion that tripped him up. It was his lack of backbone. He had the opportunity to go on the attack with Obama, and he did not do it. He should have girded up and won that election.

As for now, we do not need another anti-DT.

Mitt Romney opposed his own party´s presidential nominee during a critical election. That alone should disqualify him from public office as a representative of that party. Nevermind later sucking up to that same man for a job.

Ugh. If there is anything we have learned from the President is that the American people want someone willing to fight for them; someone who is unafraid to respond to the lying media; and someone who understands the importance of restoring this country to its greatness. This does not describe Mitt Romney. He trashed our candidate viciously and then lobbied him for a job. So which is the genuine Mitt? Here’s a hint: whichever one benefits him more. Yep, I guess that’s the depth of his integrity. Trust him at your peril. He’s in it for Mitt.

I would rather have an enemy in front of me than a traitor behind me. When Democrats attack what is needed to save my country they look partisan and cheap. They own it. When Mitt Romney does it, he looks bipartisan and "statesmanlike." He helps sell it.

Romney likes looking "statesmanlike." Not one Republican voted for Obamacare. If one had, it would have damaged every effort to repeal. A Senator Mitt Romney will give them that one vote when they really need it.

Don´t let him.

I voted for Romney in 2012 when I lived in California.
I thought that his Mormonism
would have no real impact on public policy.
Then I moved to Utah and saw the stranglehold LDS has on the politics and culture here.
They believe in unfettered immigration.
I will be voting "Anyone but Romney" (includes dems.)

Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, announced that the House Intelligence Committee´s interview phase of its investigation into collusion and Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign has concluded. Conaway told reporters Monday, "We found no evidence that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it colluded with the Russians." The Intelligence Committee did find, however, that Russia took active measures to meddle in the 2016 election, and that the majority expects it to undertake similar measures again.

A porn star suing President Trump offered Monday to return $130,000 she was paid to keep mum about their alleged sexual affair so that she can talk about the relationship. Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, offered to pay back the money in a letter to Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen, seeking to settle her lawsuit to void a nondisclosure agreement. In the letter, Ms. Clifford’s lawyer Michael Avenatti said the money would be repaid by Friday and Mr. Trump had until noon Tuesday to accept the offer. “This has never been about the money,” Clifford’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti, told NBC News

With the current in the East River between Manhattan and Queens running south at about three knots and the downed helicopter lashed to a tugboat, rescue divers on Sunday night had only one option. They told the tugboat captain to cut the propellers and resigned themselves to drifting with the current as they tried to cut five passengers out of the helicopter, their bodies underwater and cinched with harnesses heavy enough to let them lean over and snap photographs of the New York City skyline. By the time the divers plucked them out, it was too late. By the time the divers plucked them out, it was too late. The five passengers —

The White House on Sunday vowed to help provide “rigorous firearms training” to some schoolteachers and formally endorsed a bill to tighten the federal background checks system, but backed off President Trump’s earlier call to raise the minimum age to purchase some guns to 21 years old from 18 years old. Responding directly to last month’s gun massacre at a Florida high school, the administration rolled out a series of policy proposals that focus largely on mental health and school safety initiatives. The idea of arming some teachers has been controversial and has drawn sharp opposition from the National Education Association,

At a campaign rally in western Pennsylvania for a Republican congressional candidate, Trump gave some details of a testy phone call he had last month with Pena Nieto that led to the postponement of plans for the Mexican leader´s first visit to the White House. Trump brought up the issue when the crowd started chanting "Build that Wall." Trump called Pena Nieto a "really nice guy" who made his request respectfully.

Hillary Clinton will bring home a most undesired souvenir from India - a fractured wrist. The former Secretary of State injured her right hand on Tuesday, after slipping in a bathtub at the palace where she was staying in Jodhpur. Doctors were called to the Umaid Bhawan Palace and diagnosed the 70-year-old with a sprain, advising her to rest which forced her to cancel plans to visit the Mehrangarh Fort that evening. But the pain only worsened, and by Wednesday morning she decided to get her hand checked out at Goyal Hospital. Doctors there administered a CT Scan and an X-ray of Clinton´s wrist,

Hillary was seen in Jaipur on Thursday where she appeared to be adopting an out-of-sight and out-of-mind approach to her recent injury by wearing a kurta that had been customized to make one sleeve longer than other. To achieve this, the loose and flowing top was wrapped tightly around Hillary´s torso, transforming the once comfortable piece into a more constricting look complete

Attorney General Jeff Sessions late Friday night fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, a little more than 24 hours before McCabe was set to retire. Sessions announced the decision in a statement just before 10 p.m., noting that both the Justice Department Inspector General and the FBI office that handles discipline had found “that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor — including under oath — on multiple occasions.” He said based on those findings and the recommendation of the department’s senior career official, “I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announces Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has been fired. Inspector General Michael Horowitz recommended a review by the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility. The referral was based on IG Horowitz interviewing McCabe and identifying McCabe was lying about his instructions to FBI Communication Director Michael Kortan leaking to media on his behalf. Mike Kortan, Lisa Page and Peter Strzok then proceeded to leak to Devlin Barrett (WSJ and WaPo), along with other journalists, with approvals from Andrew McCabe. After IG Horowitz referred McCabe’s false statements to the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR), the OPR investigated and

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on Thursday made a final pitch to the Justice Department about why he should not be fired just 72 hours before his retirement, leaving Attorney General Jeff Sessions to decide the matter with a deadline rapidly approaching. McCabe did not meet with Sessions, who was traveling Thursday, but with other senior officials, including Scott Schools, the most senior career attorney in the department. He arrived around 1 p.m. and departed four hours later. The decision could be consequential for McCabe´s financial future, as if he is fired, he could lose significant retirement benefits. The

Former CIA director John Brennan tore into President Trump for celebrating the firing of former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe, saying Trump will be remembered as “a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. ”When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America...America will triumph over you. https://t.co/uKppoDbduj — John O. Brennan (@JohnBrennan) March 17, 2018

The pedestrian bridge that collapsed at Florida International University´s Miami-Dade campus today, killing several people, was funded with $11.4 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation´s Transportation Investments Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) program. The TIGER program has come under repeated fire for awarding money based on politics rather than merit. (Snip) In 2014, the GAO released a report that was highly critical of how DOT handled the TIGER V grants, which included money for the FIU pedestrian bridge project. The report said DOT advanced projects with lower technical ratings in lieu of those with higher technical ratings and upgraded the

"I have received a number of letters from Palestinian academics," Stephen Hawking said in his declaration of support for the BDS movement. "They are unanimous that I should respect the boycott. In view of this, I must withdraw from the conference." The conference was in 2013, in Jerusalem, and hosted by Shimon Peres, an Israeli leader who spent his career as an indefatigable advocate of peace. It didn´t matter. Hawking joined the BDS movement because he never met a fashionable far-left cause he didn´t like, and Israel-bashing was one of his favorites. In 2009, when Israel counterattacked after four years of Hamas

Friday´s firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, based on a report from the Office of Professional Responsibility, is only the beginning of what is likely to be the most explosive series of revelations in American history. Forget Watergate. It will be the distant past once the Inspector General´s reports—there apparently will be more than one—start to come out. This will be the "Gate of Gates." From the FBI and across the intelligence agencies an astonishing number of people are going to find themselves accused, one can safely predict at this point, of some atrocious behavior in

Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) scolded President Trump for celebrating the firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on Friday night, telling him to “gloat now, but you will be fired soon.” “And it’s not going to be done cowardly, as you’ve done to so many who’ve served you,” Swalwell tweeted Saturday. “There’s a storm gathering, Mr. President, and it’s going to wipe out you and your corrupt organization all the way down to the studs.” (Snip) The Democrat, who sits on the House Intelligence Committee, was responding to Trump’s tweet celebrating McCabe’s firing.

Senator Jeff Flake loves to lecture. Jeff Flake especially loves to lecture Republicans. The good news is he will no longer be a senator next year. The bad news is this d**che will either be a regular on CNN or MSNBC. Flake spoke at St. Anselm college this week. He lectured Republicans on global warming junk science. "“Republicans as a party need to be more accepting of reality. Climate change is real, and it is happening.”
