Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said lunch with President Trump was “delightful” despite a history of clashing with the president that stretches back to the 2016 presidential primary. Romney and Trump shook hands at the White House lunch Thursday, and Romney said there didn’t appear to be any signs of lingering tension between the two of them, even though Trump slammed the senator last month as a “pompous ass.” Romney, for his part, blasted Trump last month for calling on China and Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden as "wrong and appalling

Romney said there didn’t appear to be any signs of lingering tension between the two of them Uh huh...That was for the cameras, trust me. If the impeachment goes to the Senate, you can be sure Romney's blade will be among the first to strike....or try to.

Not sure of the hidden message here, but 'delightful' is the English translation of 'delecto' (as in 'Pierre Delecto')

FTA: “There is a great deal of support for removing, if you will, the candy flavors. And while there may not be a lot of support for removing the menthol flavor, then I hope we can make progress on those places where there is general support,” Romney said. This is fantastic. Vaping is the single most important issue in the lives of every single American. Every day, Americans are doing what they want in their private lives, and this has to stop. Thank Heaven we have men like Mitt Romney to stop them for us. Using to government ban things we want, so we can't have them anymore is exactly why men like Mitt Romney exist. It's just too bad that former smokers will still be able to get their hands on menthol vaping for the time being. But with Mitt Romney and office, I'm sure it's just a matter of time before he bans that too. Mitt Romney: Man of Destiny.

The issue at hand is to curb the flavors in vaping pens. The right-leaning Hill has somehow focused on has-been Romney as if he mattered. What matters about vaping is that the deaths attributed to vaping have all included over using marijuana.

President Trump is a patriot who loves this country and is known to be a gracious host while Romney, on the other hand, is a duplicitous, back stabbing snake, perfectly suited to life in the swamp. Why doesn't he just change his party affiliation to democrat and stop pretending.

Is Bill Weld still "running"? Then Mitt is still in the shadows. You bet vaping is an important "health issue" to those "conservatives" and "moderates" Pierre will appeal to if the opportunity presents itself. But first, Trump's poll numbers need to tank...and they're rising despite the "impeachment inquiry".

President Trump is courting Romney for his senate vote and most likely offered Romney a favor or two. Trump is playing Quid Pro Quo Washington DC style. We'll see how he votes. If he votes against Trump he's totally finished with the Republican party.

To quote from one of my favorites; "Your father did business with Hymen Roth, and your father respected Hymen Roth but your father never trusted Hymen Roth" In this case Rmoney is Hymen and Trump may respect him and do business with him but I am pretty sure he will never really trust him. And rightly so. The man may be smart but he is not to be trusted by the President or the rest of us and those in Utah should be looking for a replacement next time around.

Agree with #13, catsup, ketchup, whatever on a steak is fine. Made deep-fried, beer-battered, fresh-caught Alaskan halibut; visiting relative poured catsup on it (copious amount). Let folks eat what they wish, as long as I'm not having to be right by them while they're enjoying it if it's something really gnarly, such as fermented fish heads. As other posters have said, it doesn't matter what our President does or doesn't do, the left will find fault.

David Ignatius must be kidding: Who might deliver us from this national train wreck? Who could restore a sense of balance to the Senate trial so that, whatever its outcome, it doesn’t feed Trump’s false narrative of victimization and populist rage? There’s one obvious answer: Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and custodian of what remains of his party’s moral and political balance. Counting on Mitt Romney for political courage and moral leadership is always a bad bet. Romney has a very safe seat in Utah, so in theory he could afford to take risks, but taking political risks is exactly what Romney never does.
Paul Volcker's voodoo economics 3 replies

Paul Volcker died this week. He will go down in history as being the tallest Fed chair, and also the smoker of the smelliest cigars, but not much else. Financial writers of his obituary insist that his policies beat inflation in the 1980s. They did no such thing. Volcker was a prisoner of the real "voodoo economics," Keynesianism, especially the thoroughly discredited Phillips Curve, which posits low unemployment as the cause of inflation. Keynes's followers have also long insisted that tax cuts cause inflation, another piece of nonsense.

Under this lax and political pontificate, almost everything in the Church looks arbitrary and slipshod, including canonizations, which Pope Francis has been using to remake the Church in his own liberal image. He quickly canonized Óscar Romero, whose cause stalled under previous pontificates, and two liberal popes not known for any exceptional sanctity, John XXIII and Paul VI. He canonized Pope John Paul II too, but that was a fait accompli. As much as Pope Francis might have liked to stop it, he couldn’t. (Observers noted his dourness at the canonization ceremony.) In his Peronista style, he has also thrown a few bones to semi-conservatives

Scalfari is the pope’s favorite interviewer, a veritable Boswell to Bergoglio’s Samuel Johnson. The pope is so fond of their exchanges that he had the Vatican publishing house issue an early batch of their interviews as a book.

They want to talk about Donald Trump and Russian collusion, and we have the audacity to remind them of the hard evidence (a literal KGB memo) of what their “Lion of the Senate,” Ted Kennedy, did with the Russians, which they dutifully ignored throughout Kennedy’s life.

Rep.

How was that even possible? Well, I’ve always written fast. And for much of my life, I’ve felt like a frustrated would-be stand-up comic.

Pete Buttigieg has tried to carve out a niche among Democratic presidential hopefuls as the candidate who is comfortable talking about religion. Unfortunately, he’s only comfortable trying to use religion as a means of beating conservatives, especially religious ones, over the head. This annoying penchant was on display again in Buttigieg’s Christmas message. He tweeted: Today I join millions around the world in celebrating the arrival of divinity on earth, who came into this world not in riches but in poverty, not as a citizen but as a refugee. No matter where or how we celebrate, merry Christmas. Buttigieg’s message struck me as fake history.

With the help of Senate Republicans, Donald Trump spent the first three years of his presidency remaking the federal judiciary in his own image. The president has appointed 133 district court judges, 50 appeals court judges, and two Supreme Court justices—meaning about one-fifth of the nation’s federal trial judges, and one-fourth of its federal appellate judges, are Trump appointees. These jurists are leading a conservative revolution that will upend decades of precedent and enshrine reactionary policies into the law. The transformation has only just begun.

Rosemary Collyer is the presiding judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (the “FISC”). FISC is the judicial body that issues surveillance warrants to our intelligence agencies, principally the FBI, authorizing the interception of electronic communications of people located in the United States who are agents of foreign governments or who have connections to foreign terrorist organizations. On December 17, Judge Collyer issued a FISC opinion that was highly unusual because it was unclassified and made public. The Horowitz report said that the FBI intentionally misled the court by using incomplete and bogus information as the basis for it to issue FISA warrants against one-time Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.
