Allowed to Remain Confidential’

Original Article

Posted By: tisHimself, 11/7/2019 6:24:37 AM

While speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) reacted to calls to reveal the whistleblower’s identity by stating that whistleblowers, especially those speaking about government action, “should be allowed to remain confidential.” Romney said, “My own view is that whistleblowers, particularly those that are blowing whistles on action within the government, should be allowed to remain confidential.”

See, Willard, the thing is, this isn't a "whistleblower" we're talking about here. He's / they're deep-state coup-plotters attempting to reverse the election of our President; pure and simple. Geez man, you're always clueless. Utah, please fix this.

What do we have to do to get a Trump rally in Utah? I know we aren't that important electorally, but it would sure be fun to stick it to Mitt (who would probably show up, expecting the adulation of the crowd)!

Pierre Delecto, should this also be true when a whistleblower finally comes forward regarding your carried-interest scheme at Bain Capital? Why is it you were allowed to benefit from this loophole, but, us commoners can't? Oh, I forgot. You deep staters write the tax laws for your benefit, not mine.

If it talks like a Democrat and walks like a Democrat.... Anyone else getting the vibe that this guy might actually have been a Democrat plant, sent to deliberately lose to the utterly failed and disgraced Lightbringer in 2012? In any case, Romney's total cooperation with the socialists(D) is, shall we say, most convenient...

People have supported Romney at various points in time for different reasons. (I had to vote for him in 2012 because the alternative was worse.) In 2018, there was no such need or excuse. I reiterate my thoughts at the time: "Do everything possible to stop this man from successfully regaining political power.... If elected to the Senate, he will provide essential 'bipartisan' validation to charges made against the President by Democrats. In that sense, he would be worse than a Democrat. He will provide active aid and comfort to the enemy and betray us all. He will try to remove our President from office. Stop him. Vote for Anyone But Romney." - Posted by: Sunhan65, 2/3/2018

Oh Willard, just shut up. You are beclowning yourself and giving aid and comfort to the enemy. A grown man desperately seeking the praise of the media and elites is embarrassing.

I think the Press is giving Romney what he wants: a platform to go after Trump, no matter what. Unfortunately, the Press is 98% Democratic, so they will continue. But I think MOST Republicans (including, I would assume, a large number of those who voted for him) recognize his motives and his constant appearances on camera. HE thinks he is noble; WE know he is just bitter.

Wait till someone blows a whistle against Pierre and see how his tune changes. He has opinions for all occasions. Differing opinions. He isn’t educated enough to know that this rumorblower, gossipblower, 5th column spy, is not a real whistleblower. He could have read that if he looked in the right places. But golly, that wouldn’t have fit the narrative he wanted to put out…. such a dilemma...

Excuse the second post. Andy McCarthy argues today that the Confrontation clause only applies in criminal cases. A host of appellate courts, including very recently the Second District Court of Appeal in California, have reversed student disciplinary proceedings based on the university having denied the expelled student the right to confront and cross-examine the complaining witness. The Confrontation Clause in fact has been oft-stated to be the underlying basis for the evidentiary rule against hearsay. In the academic discipline setting the Confrontation Clause has been invoked by the courts as an essential element of due process under the 14th Amendment. Eventually I expect this issue will make it to SCOTUS.

President George H.W.

The New York City Medical Examiner's Office ruled Epstein's death a suicide by hanging, but a forensic pathologist who observed the four-hour autopsy on behalf of Epstein's brother, Mark, tells 60 Minutes the evidence released so far points more to murder than suicide in his view.

Alberta is often referred to as Canada’s Texas because of its cowboy culture and rich oil deposits. These are extracted from the tar sands near the city of Fort McMurray to the tune of about 3.5 million barrels a day. If the province were a country, it would be the fifth largest oil producing nation on earth, with room to grow. It has the “third largest proven oil reserve” on the planet with the capacity to fill 170 billion more barrels at least, reports National Geographic. By Canadian standards, Albertans are conservative citizens with a libertarian glint in their eye. By American standards, they’re moderates.

Many on both ends of the political spectrum are aware of the fact that social justice is simply Marxism, masquerading as a new ideological movement. Like Marxism, social justice's goal is to make the world a more balanced and equitable place. As Marx phrased it in Das Kapital, "[i]n order to establish equality, we must first establish inequality" (1). By finding the inequalities of the world, the Marxist can then begin eliminating the obstacles that impede equality. The more of these sources of inequality the Marxist eliminates, the closer we move to an equitable socialist utopia.

A Democratic presidential campaign field that was once touted as the most diverse in history has been whittled down to six candidates on its debate stage, all of them white.

To qualify for Tuesday’s debate in Iowa, a candidate had to receive contributions from 225,000 donors nationally and receive at least 7% support in two polls from the early-voting states — Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina
