(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

Comments:
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.)

Political Feuds: Cuomo vs. de Blasio
New York Times, by Shane Goldmacher, J. David Goodman    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/22/2018 4:45:41     Post Reply
It was, almost without question, the low point of Andrew M. Cuomo’s political career. The year was 2002 and Mr. Cuomo was badly trailing in the Democratic primary for governor and desperately seeking a graceful exit. He needed a loyal lieutenant, someone to help him salvage his future and negotiate the delicate terms of political surrender. Mr. Cuomo turned to a trusted former colleague: Bill de Blasio. And so, in a weekend of secret shuttle diplomacy, Mr. de Blasio, then a junior New York City councilman, did just that. Along with a cast that included President Bill Clinton, Mr. de Blasio was an indispensable emissary as Mr. Cuomo

Nashville, TN - A man wearing nothing but a green jacket and brandishing an assault rifle stormed a Waffle House restaurant in Tennessee and shot four people to death before dawn Sunday, according to police, who credited a customer with saving lives by wresting the gunman’s weapon away. Witness Chuck Cordero told The Tennessean newspaper he had stopped to get a cup of coffee and was outside the restaurant when he saw the chaos unfold around 3:25 a.m. “He did not say anything,” Cordero said of the gunman, who he described as “all business.” Cordero said the man who wrested the gun from the suspect saved lives.

Air Base AIR 201, Niger - (Video) Rising from a barren stretch of African scrubland, a half-finished drone base represents the newest front line in America’s global shadow war. At its center, hundreds of Air Force personnel are feverishly working to complete a $110 million airfield that, when finished in the coming months, will be used to stalk or strike extremists deep into West and North Africa, a region where most Americans have no idea the country is fighting.

CNN’s Dana Bash asked her directly, “What is up with your husband’s tweets?” She brought up some tweets in question––tweets that have since been deleted––to get the White House counselor’s response. Conway got in a dig at Hillary Clinton before saying, “It’s fascinating to me that CNN would go there, but it’s very good for the whole world to have just witnessed that it’s now fair game… how people’s spouses and

Beijing - As the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un prepares for his meetings with the presidents of South Korea and the United States, China has found itself in an unaccustomed place: watching from the sidelines. Worse, many Chinese analysts say, North Korea could pursue a grand bargain designed not only to bring the isolated nation closer to its two former Korean War opponents, but also diminish its reliance on China for trade and security. Such an outcome — a reversal of 70 years of history — remains a long shot, amid doubts about whether the North would agree to relinquish its arsenal of nuclear weapons.

Residents in the San Francisco Bay Area are living along a fault that is a "ticking time bomb" that could generate an earthquake that could kill hundreds, according to a report released Wednesday. The U.S. Geological Survey said in a report called the "HayWired Scenario" that a magnitude 7.0 earthquake on Hayward Fault located under Oakland could kill as many as 800 people and injure up to 18,000. “This fault is what we sort of call a tectonic time bomb,” USGS earthquake geologist emeritus David Schwartz told the Los Angeles Times. “It’s just waiting to go off.” Researches said the Hayward Fault is dangerous because it runs through

The memos are out from former FBI Director James Comey, and one of the big takeaways is how useful a tool Valerie Jarrett´s daughter, Laura Jarrett, could be for the Hillary Clinton campaign while she was employed at CNN. CNN, it seems, helped orchestrate the set-up of President Trump when it pressed the then-FBI director to have a meeting with Trump so that the matter could be leaked and the press would have a credible reason to report as news all the otherwise slimy opposition research contained within the Steele dossier. Up until then, Fusion GPS, the purveyor of the unverified garbage written by its Moscow sources,

The U.S. State Department has released its first human rights report fully compiled under the Trump administration, and it´s generating controversy for several changes and omissions - including eliminating references to "reproductive rights" and dropping use of the term "occupied territories." (Snip) Generating the most attention is the replacement of sections on "reproductive rights" with ones on "coercion in population control" – a sign of the Trump administration´s anti-abortion push that spreads beyond the U.S., like reinstating the so-called Mexico City policy and reportedly trying to remove references to contraception,

First-term Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is emerging as a Democratic presidential contender in 2020. However, according to Politico, her own voters in California do not really know much about her. In an article titled “Kamala Harris’ rapid rise confounds California,” Politico’s David Siders writes: Kamala Harris has been called “the female Barack Obama.” She’s built a national following with her outspoken criticism of Donald Trump and prolific fundraising for fellow Democrats. But the California senator’s rapid rise — she’s just 15 months into her first term — has created an awkward issue: Even as progressives tout her as one of

Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently told the White House he might have to leave his job if President Trump fired his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the exchange. Sessions made his position known in a phone call to White House counsel Donald McGahn last weekend, as Trump’s fury at Rosenstein peaked after the deputy attorney general approved the FBI’s raid April 9 on the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen. Sessions’s message to the White House, which has not previously been reported, underscores the political firestorm

A small group of mostly high school students gathered in front of the White House on Friday as part of the National School Walkout, an anti-gun protest launched by a Connecticut teen following the shooting deaths of 17 people at a Florida high school in February. (Snip)“And so too must we regulate the Second Amendment,” Berlin said. “Just as the freedoms of the First Amendment are subject to rules and regulation so too must be those protected under the Second.” “No amendment is absolute,” Berlin said. “Your right to a gun does not supersede my right to graduate high school.”

Roger Stone, a former adviser to President Trump, lost an invitation to speak at a Florida Republican group´s annual dinner due to negative remarks he made about former first lady Barbara Bush. The Okaloosa Republican Executive Committee "uninvited" Stone over comments he made to the right-wing conspiratorial website InfoWars about Bush, who died Tuesday. "I understand I´m going to take a lot of crap for speaking the truth about Barbara Bush," Stone said in an interview with InfoWars host Alex Jones. "She was a mean-spirited, vindictive drunk. She is ascending into hell right now. She´s not going to heaven. She

Hillary Clinton´s daughter Chelsea popped the champagne after the polls closed – and before her mom´s stunning loss to Donald Trump, according to a new book. ´Chasing Hillary,´ by New York Times reporter Amy Chozick, who covered both of Clinton´s presidential campaigns, cites anonymous sources to say it was even French bubbly: Veuve Clicquot. ´Things were already looking bad when, several people told me, Chelsea Clinton popped the Champagne,´ Chozick writes, according to a preview in the New York Times. ´It was just after 9 p.m. on election night and she was having her hair and makeup done in the family’s suite

Imagine a combination of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, and you´ve got Kamala Harris, the current seat-warming senator from California who, like Obama, is using the World´s Greatest Deliberative Body as a resume-puncher before swiftly moving on to bigger things: the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination. Even as a nobody senator, she´s been the subject of dozens, perhaps scores of speculative stories about her future, so now -- lest they build her up too quickly -- Politico and other Democrat cheerleaders are cautioning her to get her ducks in order before heading out on the hustings: "Kamala Harris has been called “the

It is with a heavy heart, and profound regret for the current state of media in America, that I have dragged my laptop to a Starbucks to pen this column. But I think it is important that we understand the degree of oppression we are up against. I regret to say: I have been silenced. I expressed an opinion, and people criticized that opinion. And since that day, my voice has never been heard again. I am entombed where none can hear my jangling bells, for doing nothing more than walking down the street, saying that women who get abortions

A California school district says that parents can’t opt out of a new sex education course that will deal with abortion, homosexuality and transgender issues. California passed a law called the California Healthy Youth Act in 2015 to promote “healthy attitudes” about “gender [and] sexual orientation.” The law is meant to teach students about the “effectiveness and safety of all FDA-approved contraceptive methods” and allow for “objective discussion” about “parenting, adoption, and abortion.” The law also gives parents the ability to opt-out of this education and said that the “pupil” shall not be punished academically in any way if they don’t

Norm Macdonald, in addition to being the best Weekend Update anchor ever, is also a keen student of human nature. Last year he summed up the results of the 2016 presidential election with this koan-like observation: "People hated Hillary Clinton so much that they voted for someone they hated more than Hillary Clinton in order to rub it in." I really think that sums up our current moment. A lot of people, myself included, underestimated just how tired of Hillary everyone was. After a quarter-century of listening to that awful old criminal´s angry, scolding voice, America finally said enough was

AMSTERDAM -- Amnesty International gave former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick its Ambassador of Conscience Award on Saturday for his kneeling protest of racial injustice that launched a sports movement and might have cost him his job. (Snip) "Racialized oppression and dehumanization is woven into the very fabric of our nation -- the effects of which can be seen in the lawful lynching of black and brown people by the police, and the mass incarceration of black and brown lives in the prison industrial complex," Kaepernick said. Kaepernick first took a knee during the pre-game playing of the American national anthem

A Fresno State professor who called the late Barbara Bush “racist” soon after her death Tuesday, and said she was glad “the witch is dead,” continues to face fallout as donors mull ceasing donations to the institution. Randa Jarrar, an English professor at the school (also known as California State University at Fresno), sparked outrage Tuesday just hours after the former first lady died at age 92, writing a number of tweets attacking Bush and the family. “Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal.
