How Mitt Romney Decided
Trump Is Guilty

Original Article

Posted By: rubberneck, 2/5/2020 2:40:47 PM

Mitt Romney didn’t want to go through with it. “This has been the most difficult decision I have ever had to make in my life,” he told me yesterday afternoon in his Senate office. Roughly 24 hours later, Romney would deliver a speech announcing that he was voting to convict President Donald Trump on the first article of impeachment—abuse of power.

Comments:

I would be willing to take the esteemed Mr. Romney at his word... if he didn't have a long and storied history of personal political opportunism. He was anti-Second-Amendment before he was for it. He was pro-abortion before he was anti-abortion. He was a Trump fan when he was courting an endorsement, then he stabbed Trump in the back, and continues to twist the knife. I was once a lukewarm fan - not any more!

Mitt can keep telling himself (and others) that he is voting guilty because it is the right thing to do, but he will still be wrong! TDS has apparently mutated so that it also infects previously respected Republicans. Also, how can Romney vote to convict if he felt that he needed more witnesses and information when he voted for more witnesses because the case was apparently not proven?

I would hope the good folks in Utah will get rid of him at the end of his term, if not before. There has to be a REPUBLICAN in Utah willing to run for that Seat. Mitt has never been a true Republican, and he hates Trump, so I guess we should have expected him to do this. Maybe he thought it would get him a lot of attention, and it has, only I think it's not going to be the attention he would like. I think he's a disgrace! I hope his fellow Senators feel the same and let him know it!

Romney must have been sleeping, reading a book, or something during this whole sham impeachment process. Democrats alleged no crime. They just whined and sniveled because President Trump wouldn't help them with impeachment. They just wanted to impeach because they don't like President Trump or his policies. After some of the best minds in the legal world patiently explained why there were no grounds for impeachment, and after the transcript of the call was made public (surprise, surprise!) and destroyed Schiff's dirty little lies, how can Romney still find something to remove the President? Does he truly believe Schiff and Nadler? Of course not! No sane person would. Romney may have searched his soul, prayed, and all that, but he has made a decision to do the wrong thing for his own wrong personal reasons. If he is representative of the Mormons (and I don't think he is, no matter what he claims) that group needs to clarify it's position!

Anyone who has ever had the misfortune to serve on a hung jury has experienced this kind of irrational juror. Mitt must have completely missed the presentations of Pam Bondi and Eric Herschmann that clearly showed a serious concern for potential corruption regarding Biden's behavior in Ukraine even from the State Department witnesses. It doesn't matter how much evidence you present or logic you use you can't change their mind because their conscience or God or "heart" told them to decide they way they did. Maybe Mitt talked with his campaign foreign adviser, Cofer Black, who also served on Burisma's board and received laundered money to convince himself that Hunter was actually worth $83,000 per month for not even showing up. Jurors like Mitt are why OJ walked free.

EVERYONE knows that Romney detests Trump, and also resents the way Trump (which WAS nasty) had him in to talk about a major office and then rejected him. Also, I am sure the man is furious that Trump won what he couldn't. So let's not play games and pretend this is a decision drawn on principle. What WILL be interesting to see is if Romney, not yet up for re-election but in a very pro Trump state, will have the guts to vote impeach this afternoon. His constituents will hate him for it, and I presume will also REMEMBER>

Not only would I not want him in the foxhole next to me, but I also would not want him on my team for a backyard horseshoes game. He is a human windsock.

If he voted for more witnesses because the case was not covincing enough, how can he vote to convict now? Isn't it still not convincing enough? Bad team player, anti-american, (probably) corrupt up to his eyeballs, and insufferably boring. The Republicans are getting unified finally and he has to be the petulant one. Utah must have real buyers remorse at how he has turned out.

Romney's son and former business associates were linked to Burisma. Romney is building whatever defense he can against prosecution. See.... they didn't really take bribes (paid directly or indirectly to me), I'm being accused (even though they took the cash) because I voted for impeachment . Pretty weak sauce Pierre Secondly, when we talk to God it's called prayer. If Mittens hears God's voice or any voice talking back to him, that's called schizophrenia!

Fooled me once, but not the second time. Lots of Anger about Romney now — with a possible proposal in legislature to recall a senator and all. The very good man Romney beat in the primary changed his Facebook photo yesterday and all sorts of people were asking him and begging him to run again and saying they hadn't voted for Romney and what a mistake R is. I will say, physically, Romney — I don't think looks the same — like pure evil has taken over and he has gone to the dark side. I am angry, also, because Romney never fought for us like Trump has. There was that first debate and then R just rolled over and that was it.

From what I'm reading, the only reason people voted for Romney was because he was a better choice than Obama. However, being a Mormon, people were shy to vote for him. People are really going to be shy to vote for Mormons now. I thought they believed in "Revenge is mine, saith the Lord." We all know Romney was POed because he didn't get a cabinet position.

I now despise this man as much as I used to despise McCain. He's right up there with corrupt Comey for self-righteousness. It is absolutely clear that Biden and his family are thoroughly corrupt, and yet Romney gives them a pass and calls Trump guilty. He'll never get nominated for POTUS again unless the Democrats nominate him. He can call himself a Republican all he wants, but he's not one.

This tells me that the man is pathetically credulous and apparently can’t make distinctions. His motivations may even be base. That’s a very good question, #13. So much for reasonable doubt, particularly when no specific crime was actually defined. Due process has been woefully absent throughout this charade, and that alone should ensure acquittal.

As far as Trump supporters are concerned, who are the vast majority of Republican voters outside the DC beltway, from now on Romney is a non-entity in the Republican Party. In that respect it has recently reported that Romney is going to run for the Republican Presidential nomination in 2024. Romney should just forget it or get blown out of the saddle in 2024. Who knows maybe the good citizens of Utah will recall the holier than thou opportunist Romney taking him completely out of the DC political picture.

In a real courtroom the judge would have thrown out the arts of impeachment for “failing to state a cause of action”, such as if I brought a suit against some for being a Republican or being named Trump. In a courtroom the jurors would simply be fact finders- for example, do the facts show that driver A had a clear opportunity to stop but negligently did not do it. If there were two witnesses one saying the defendants stabbed the victim the other saying he did not, the the juror would have to decide who was telling the truth. I might pray on such a decision. Here there are no disputed facts. Just an absurd theory that the president cannot request the investigation of of someone if that someone’s father is a political opponent of the president. There is no law against the president doing so. There is no privilege against prosecution for the political opponent. So pierre prayed and hallucinated satan’s voice and voted to convict for a noncrime nonoffense. It’s just something the political allies of the political opponent don’t like.

Still sore from losing in 2012? What does Trump have to do with your hate? Algore, Billary, and you are all the same. You get those undies in a bunch and never get over it. Utah, get rid of Pierre.

So Mittens is clairvoyant as well. I wish he looked into the future ans saw he's butt being kicked by Cathy Crowley. So Romney knows Old Joe will be the nominee. HOw else can it be election interference if somelike Sanders or Lieawatha is the nominee. Its not election interference if the person being investigated isn't a candidate. Or maybe it was your split personailty that can see into the future. Regardless, dropping the bar for impeachable offenses to hearsay, rumors and made up charges without any basis of law is one sure way to insure despotism. And we know for sure one Dem/Socialist, The Bern, already has shown us his Mein Kampf plan for despotism.

Romney is a snake starved for attention. He may become a temporary plaything for CNN and MSNBC but he has lost whatever respect he had from both parties. The liberals will use him and throw him away. The Republicans are done with him now.

During Romney's announcement on the floor of the senate, that pregnant pause he took while he was reading his decision to vote against Trump wasn't emotion. It was him thinking, "Am I really going to do this? Am I going to run a spike through my own head with this vote? Rats!! I can't back out. I already gave Chris Wallace the interview three hours ago that I was voting to convict Trump." And Romney repeatedly hiding his spiteful decision behind religion was despicable. Mitt Romney, backstabber extraordinaire will go down in history as a traitor to the constitution, as well as to the state that, and the president who, helped send him to the senate. "Pierre Delecto" proved what people already thought about him. As to the democrats, this was nothing more than the next stage of their nonstop #resistance effort, ongoing since the day Trump was sworn in. Do not consider it over.

Here's an observation from way, way back that applies to Romney today. Thomas Dewey's stunning loss to Harry Truman in 1948 was attributed to Dewey looking like the figure on top of a wedding cake (anyone remember wedding cakes?).

This narcissistic prosti hopefully will be impeached in his state. .. he will never, ever be president... and it will not be a difficult decision for Republicans to make. This liar apparently appeared on Limbaugh's show and declared that he was an 'arch conservative'!!! Really?

I’ll be the skunk at this party. I believe, if Romney is actually aware of the fact that he has very few friends on either side of the aisle due to his vote, then he actually did vote his conscience. This vote could cause Trump to pound him in the ground forever. It could cause every republican in the Senate to avoid him for the rest of his days as a senator. And, it could cause the good people of Utah to vote him out when he’s up for election. All of this could happen if the above people mentioned feel the way the posters on this thread feel. If he truly knows this and loses his job, but has no regrets, then he voted his conscience. Only time will tell. As for myself, I don’t care either way. At my age, I refuse to let what any politician does ruin my life. It’s not worth it.

I can also give Romney the benefit of the doubt that he truly believes that the president’s intention was to request Ukraine to go after Biden because Biden is an opponent in the 2020 election. I disagree. I frankly didnt listen to all the Dems’ arguments during the House hearings or the Senate trial but I did read the transcript of the phone call and it simply doesn’t prove anything like that. vindman didn’t prove it. The other guy Sand whatever didn’t prove it. Maybe Trump is just super slick at these things but — nobody can convince me that that was his intentional goal. I think he will be more careful about the potential for appearances next time. But that’s it. If you are convinced he is corrupt, you see everything he does as with the worst motives. I see a man who loves the country and wants to fix everything. He’s coarse and rude and vindictive - but at the same time often funny, kind and good hearted, and has a strong code of right and wrong. I listened to him on Rush and hannity’s radio shows several times years ago - he was talking about the same things about the country then. He has an enormous task and so I give him the benefit of the doubt for things he has not yet addressed, and pray for a second term with a republican house and senate!

A Boise church ‘repents’ and will
remove a Confederate icon.
Are others in Idaho next?

Posted by rubberneck 6/13/2020 10:45:44 AM Post Reply
One of Boise’s largest churches is removing a controversial reminder of Idaho’s connections to the Confederacy — a stained-glass window featuring Confederate General Robert E. Lee. The Cathedral of the Rockies installed stained-glass windows for its then-new building in downtown Boise in 1960. Church documents show that the window, featuring Lee standing with Presidents Abraham Lincoln and George Washington, was meant as an “inclusive nod to Southerners who have settled in Boise,” said the Rev. Duane Anders, senior pastor. “Clearly, white Southerners,” Anders said.

When finished, NV Energy’s estimated $1 billion Gemini Solar Project is set to become the eighth-largest solar power facility in the world, spanning some 7,100 acres (2873 hectares) of federal land and generating enough electricity to power 260,000 homes in the region.

Why Are Republicans Mispronouncing
Kamala Harris’ Name? Racism

Since Kamala Harris was announced as Joe Biden’s pick for Vice President, the negative immediate media coverage of Harris has, as expected, been swift and vicious. She’s already been attacked by right-wing commenters, and called ‘nasty’ by the President. But another big, underlying trend has been far simpler: Harris’ first name has been regularly mispronounced, often intentionally by the likes of seasoned political commentators like Tucker Carlson. But Harris, who pronounces her first name “COMMA-luh” and not “kuh-MA-luh,” shouldn’t have to deal with this. She’s been in the political spotlight for years, including her own presidential run just a few

Crime, taxes, disease, and an anti-science approach to social distancing have chased a number of big retailers and restaurateurs out of New York forever, reports the far-left New York Times. “In the heart of Manhattan, national chains including J.C. Penney, Kate Spade, Subway and Le Pain Quotidien have shuttered branches for good,” per the Times, which adds other big box retailers, like Victoria’s Secret and the Gap, have chosen to reopen in other states while their Manhattan locations remain shuttered. On top of that, Victoria’s Secret, which had been paying $937,000 a month in rent, is no longer paying that rent.

A day after looters smashed-in retailer’s windows, carried away loads of high-end merchandise and overwhelmed police officers in downtown Chicago, Mayor Lori Lightfoot says the violence was an organized raid and not a demonstration of angry protest. “When people showed up on Michigan Avenue in the downtown area with U-Haul trucks and cargo vans, and sophisticated equipment used to cut metal, and the methods that were used, and how quickly it got spun up… that wasn’t any spontaneous reaction,” Lightfoot told TIME in her fifth-floor offices at Chicago’s City Hall on Tuesday.

Kamala Harris, tapped on Tuesday as Joe Biden’s running mate, attended services at both a Black Baptist church and a Hindu temple growing up – an interfaith background that reflects her historic status as the first Black woman and woman of South Asian descent on a major-party presidential ticket. The 55-year-old first-term Democratic senator, whose name means “lotus” in the Sanskrit language, identifies as a Baptist as an adult and brought another faith into her life in 2014 when she married Douglas Emhoff, a Jewish attorney. Their wedding featured the breaking of a glass, a Jewish tradition, and Harris’ stepchildren

It’s not just a few Upper West Siders who are fleeing New York: Moving companies say they’re swamped with calls from residents looking to ditch the city — even though the COVID crisis has waned. One likely reason: The virus was but the last straw; New Yorkers are fed up with the shootings and lootings, homelessness on the streets, sub-par online schools, sky-high taxes and the sheer obliviousness of pols like Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo. On Sunday, The Post highlighted families who’ve given up on the Upper West Side — now teeming with junkies, the homeless, convicts and others — and are headed for greener pastures outside Gotham.

Even if you are in your own home alone (not that that should matter), the fascist Democrats who now run the Wisconsin state government are forcing employees to wear masks during online meetings: In an email to employees sent out on July 31, the head of Wisconsin’s Department of Natural Resources not only reminded employees of Gov. Tony Evers’ mask order going into effect on Aug. 1, he also said that every DNR employee must wear a mask …

Major League Baseball teams are looking into introducing camera technology to ballparks that could detect whether or not fans are wearing masks in the stands. The software could also flag attendees who are wearing them improperly, like leaving their nose uncovered or dangling them around their neck. Several teams are in talks with Airspace Systems Inc, a California security firm with technology that can scan security footage for mask 'hot spots.' In trial runs, the Airspace system was able to clock mask use with over 80 percent accuracy.

The educrats who run the Fairfax public schools have advised parents there not to hire tutors or organize informal homeschool "pods" to replace the shuttered schools because some parents cannot afford to do so, and that would be "unfair."

In reading George Will’s recent column (“The Difference between Trumpism and fascism”), I was struck by a few things: his elitist anti-Trump tone, his denigration of the President’s supporters and his lack of understanding of Donald Trump’s appeal. The thing which struck me most, however, was not a failure to know the past, but his inability to apply the lessons of history to the present. He recites the basics of the history of fascism while completely missing how that history applies to the current situation.

Social Security was still paying benefits this year to a woman who died nearly 50 years ago, and her nephew had been cashing the checks, federal prosecutors said Tuesday, collecting a staggering $459,000 over the years. The government also paid out a $1,200 coronavirus stimulus check this year to the woman, who according to records would have to have been 114 years old—the second-oldest person on Social Security. In actuality the woman, identified only as AV in court documents, died in Brooklyn in 1971. But the government began paying Social Security six years later in 1977, and she was listed
