Mitt Romney on Tuesday used his maiden speech as a U.S. senator to call for closer ties between the United States and its European allies at a time when President Trump’s actions have called into question his commitment to transatlantic relations. “It is in the United States’ most vital interest to see a strong NATO, a strong Europe, stronger ties with the free nations of Asia and the subcontinent, and with every free country,” the Utah Republican said. “We need to hold our friends closer, not neglect them or drive them away.” Romney did not mention Trump by name in what was his first major address since joining the Senate in January,

Comments:

1. can a back bench Senator give a major address? 2. Had to grab a megaphone during the President’s major appearance? What a petty and jealous little man.

"Mitt Romney on Tuesday used his maiden speech as a U.S. senator to call for closer ties between the United States and its European allies at a time when President Trump’s actions have called into question his commitment to transatlantic relations." Who is he talking about? The main entity Trump has criticized is the Socialist European Union which has not been good for Europe or the United States. This sounds like something Obama would say. Switch parties, Mitt. You are a fraud as a Republican. Better yet, join the Communist Party. That would be the best fit for you.

Romney and Hillary are sounding like twins separated at birth. Their jealous bitter hatred of President Donald J. Trump says more about their character or lack thereof than it does the President. Both are mired in a desire to get even with the guy that is proving everyday that he is a better fit for the job than they could have even been and it is eating them alive. Hillary is a steamroller who lacks any nuance when it comes to whining about her loss. Romney is just a sleazy backstabber with zero integrity. Both are losers who fail to self-examine and realize their loss was due to their total lack of appeal along with the stench of sanctimonious superiority that wafts around them making them highly repulsive. Their continuing actions confirm what we already know. Petty jealousy is a losing strategy.

Mitten's implications, as usual, are upside down. Trump has insisted that the other members of NATO are not shouldering their fair share of costs. The leaders of NATO have credited Trump for shoring up funding and strengthening the organization. Mitten's comment are damaging instead of helpful. Praiseful words to allies are just sucking up if you are ignoring serious problems that exist. Trump addressed the problems. Romney is, as usual, a suck up.

"I'm not going to be a candidate for president in 2020," Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan tells The Washington Post in an interview published Saturday afternoon. Thus ends what was for months the Great #NeverTrump Primary Hope, in the form of a medium-sized blue state's locally popular, nationally unknown purple governor. Jeb Bush had vouched for him; Jerry Taylor, president of the ex-libertarian Niskanen Center, had dedicated "every fiber" of his "being" toward convincing Hogan to run. But in the end the math was just too cruel: The incumbent president has a 90 percent job-approval rating among Republicans,

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 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.

President Trump’s threat to impose tariffs on all Mexican imports until Mexico takes serious action to control its border with the U.S. shocked the Washington Beltway, Wall Street, and the Palacio Nacional in Mexico City. These centers of financial and political power, lulled by a U.S. Congress that has refused to act and activist federal judges who have stymied Trump’s border control efforts at every step, were jolted awake by Trump’s ultimatum. But they should not have been surprised. The president issued a similar threat back in April.

Let’s be clear about a few things regarding “carbon taxes”. First, the system of taxing carbon emissions, also known as “cap-n-trade”, has absolutely nothing to do with climate change. Second a “carbon tax” is the holy grail for the totalitarian globalist world view. The concept of a tax on carbon emissions was developed inside the same financial network of multinational monetary interests that control the current global trade system. Powerful financial interests directly connected to The World Bank (WB), International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Trade Organization (WTO), together with global banking interests connected to Wall Street and

His point basically was (without rehashing the whole thing) that every bit of everything we know or think we know--every news item, every little bit of information that fed this narrative the past two years or three now, that Trump colluded with Russia--came not from American intelligence, not from British intelligence. It didn’t come from FBI intelligence.
