When asked about Republicans’ criticism of his occasional anti-Trump stances, Mitt Romney doesn’t miss a beat: “I have to show you something.” He grabs his iPad and pulls up an article: “Romney: why the Republican pros distrust him.” It’s a 1964 Look Magazine profile about his father George, a former moderate governor of Michigan, which claims that “party people are troubled by what he says.

The only thing I remember about his father was that someone, possibly LBJ, described him as having a brain of mush.

But he will capitalize running as a Republican or conservative. This is what bothers me about politicians. They almost come across as fake. I say almost because I don't want to accuse all of them in that manner. I hold the Republican National Party responsible for some of it. If you don't have Republican defined, anyone can run as one. Mitt Romney wants you to believe that he is conservative but when it gets right down to the vote, he just can't do it.

People like Mitt and McCain want to play politics as a game that is rigged against them. Ultimately, they play and eventually they lose...and that's ok. They ate nonplussed to understand why we like WINNING?

Mitt is irrelevant, so whether he has strategy, or what that strategy might be, is meaningless.

So, he wants to be just like his daddy. He reminds me of my husband's brother. He votes for democrats because that's what his daddy did (and yes, that's how he refers to him). He doesn't give a damn that the 'rat party is not the same party his father, who died in 1965 voted for.

There is no strategy only pettiness, just like McCain, a phony who puts forward a good face but is a back stabbing jerk. If it weren't for McCain we would have gotten rid of Obamacare and been able to replace it. As it is I am sure this nitwit would vote that same way. I really have come to feel not much more than total disgust for this man that I actually voted for.

And this is why Family Political Dynasties have to end. Romney is an acolyte of Bush's Compassionate Conservatism, which by it's acts proves it is neither. I consider myself a Conservative, and all I want from Government is to be left alone.

So basically, the old school republicans didn't trust senior Romney either? Apparently the apple didn't fall far from the tree then did it? I guess the name Romney is coming to mean everything you want in a sleazy and corrupt liar, which only benefits the swamp he has joined.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Tex, seemed as surprised as everyone else when he admitted he agreed with a proposal put forward by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY. The duo found common ground after the New York Democrat called for a ban on lawmakers becoming lobbyists. Ocasio-Cortez got the ball rolling on Twitter, reacting to a statistic that shows 60 percent of former congressmen from the 115th Congress received jobs as lobbyists or federal policy influencers, something she disapproved.

The presidential election is in full swing. If this were any other year, I’d be working to help reelect the Republican incumbent, hoping he would stay focused on advancing a solid free-market regulatory policy. I served on the campaign team for John McCain in 2008, on the economic-policy team of Mitt Romney in 2012, and on Donald Trump’s transition team in 2016, before I resigned over policy differences.

In our nation’s history, more than 1 million American servicemembers have been killed in U.S. wars. For the past 151 years on the fourth Monday of May, we have honored the great soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen who have fallen. Much has changed, but the generations of brave men and women willing to make the ultimate sacrifice in the name of freedom have endured, and the sanctity with which we regard these individuals has remained.

During a private dinner last week at the Capitol Hill Club in Washington, D.C., I was taken to task by a Republican congressman after I pressed him on his lack of support for President Donald Trump’s proposed space force. The congressman is a war hero. His service is unimpeachable and I maintain a deep respect for his commitment to our country. Yet his responses to my questions were flippant, painfully uninformed, and dangerously rooted in a reflexive NeverTrumpism that is unworthy of the man.

Democrats in the House are celebrating Friday’s passage of the Equality Act, a misnamed legal jackhammer that would add “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to federal civil rights law. It goes far beyond allowing men into women’s sports and locker rooms, as bad as that is. It provides the state with the power to persecute anyone who won’t celebrate any aspect of the LGBTQ agenda.

Sen. Mitt Romney is not ready to endorse his party's incumbent president for re-election. The Utah Republican said Sunday on CNN "State of the Union" that it's "way too early" to declare his support for President Donald Trump in 2020, saying Trump needs to improve "when it comes to helping shape the character of the country." Polling shows that the president is heavily favored to defeat former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld, his only primary challenger to date. But even if Trump secures the nomination, Romney may cast his vote for the same woman as he did in 2016: his wife, Ann Romney.

Critical Race Theory holds that American society is irredeemably racist in favor of the white majority. The thinking is that in a racially oppressive society, though you may also have in common with another your sex, your likes or dislikes, your religion, your political ideas, even your disposition, ethnic commonality or skin color matters beyond anything else. For this reason, only someone of your ethnicity can ever really understand you or grasp your deep-down motives for your actions

Opening his speech to British parliamentarians in 2011, President Barack Obama said, “I have known few greater honors than the opportunity to address the Mother of Parliaments at Westminster Hall." It is an honor that will not be extended to President Trump next week during his first state visit to Britain, one of a number of differences from the trips made by his predecessors. British and American officials have played down concerns about protests and insist that Trump is being afforded every bit of the usual hospitality — from dinner with the queen to bilateral talks with Theresa May, the prime minister.

Markets thrive on competition. Unfortunately, this doesn’t just apply to real economic markets. It also applies to markets for bad ideas and political pandering. With approximately 200 Democrats now running for president (we lost count a few weeks ago), the bidding to bribe Iowa caucusgoers is becoming intense. This is unfortunate not just because it is unseemly but also because the offers are coming at the expense of the nation’s well-being and the environment’s health. The worst pander so far comes from Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn. When she is not privately belittling her staff in ALL CAPS 4 a.m. emails, Klobuchar is attempting to gain

To entrap the president into obstructing justice, of course. Mueller had a plan. He would use his witchhunt to anger the president enough that he would try to stop the investigation and if he didn’t,

President Trump was interviewed on Friday by a reporter from British tabloid The Sun and showed surprise when he was told that Meghan Markle had made some critical remarks about him in 2016. She had said Trump was “misogynistic” and “divisive,” adding that she would move to Canada if he won the election.He was not told what Markle had said, but the President sidestepped the snare laid by the reporter and replied simply, “I didn’t know that. What can I say? I didn’t know that she was nasty.”Markle has since moved to England after marrying Prince Harry, but apparently, her distaste for President Trump remains,

“Bombshell” best describes David Garrow’s lengthy piece “The Troubling Legacy of Martin Luther King.” The article not only obliterates what we think we know about one of the most beloved figures in American history, it, like a bombshell, hurts people. This includes the many admirers of Martin Luther King but also the various figures, including alleged paramours still alive, named in the article. The manner in which the government assembled the derogatory information on King — gathered with the approval of Democratic officials, including Attorney General Robert Kennedy, all feigning support for the civil rights leader — sickens in a literal sense. Using King’s association with various figures involved

Kamala Harris’ first significant political role was an appointment by her powerful then-boyfriend Willie Brown, three decades her senior, to a California medical board that has been criticized as a landing spot for patronage jobs and kickbacks. Then 30, Harris was dating 60-year-old Willie Brown, at the time the Democratic speaker of the California State Assembly, when he placed her on the California Medical Assistance Commission in 1994. The position paid over $70,000 per year, $120,700 in current money, and Harris served on the board until 1998. The medical commission met twice a month, and Harris, a United States senator for California since 2017 and now a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate,

Oh, this is rich….

The scale of obtuse, hypocritical and self-serving protestation is off-the-charts.First, the executive branch controls the declassification process unilaterally. The legislative branch can request briefings; and customarily the executive informs the ‘gang of eight’ (when needed) on matters of intelligence releases. However, the legislative branch has no authority over the independent decisions/purposes of the executive in
