Former Romney Campaign Spokesman
Says Romney’s Impeachment Vote All
About Jealousy & Bitterness

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 2/8/2020 2:01:57 PM

Failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s impeachment vote betrayal was quickly painted by the far-left media as an act of “courage.” Mr. Romney himself premised his vote by bringing up what he calls his deeply-held religious beliefs. Ah, but a former Romney campaign spokesperson is calling out the Utah senator on that – claiming Romney’s true motivations are nothing more than bitter, jealousy-fueled nonsense mean to curry favor among the D.C. elites. Romney despises President Trump for one thing above all else – Trump is president and he never will be. (Snip) Rick Gorka,(Snip) tweeted Wednesday that Trump “accomplished what he [Romney] has failed to do multiple times.”

Comments:

Gorka was press secretary for Mittsky’s 2012 presidential campaign. Now works for the RNC.

Romney didn't fail, Gorka. He facilitated and prospered from Cofer Black ratlines across the globe...he's a winner in Bush circles.

Turncoats are NEVER admired by either side in a conflict. They are used and tossed aside as untrustworthy. I don't think God was whispering an answer to his prayers because I seriously doubt it was God he addressed. More likely it was some fallen 'angel'.

The muddled Mormon, Romney, described himself as 'profoundly religious.' I have never heard anyone, ever, describe himself as profoundly religious. Not a pope, not a cardinal, not a priest, pastor, rabbi, or imam. someone famous - I forget who - once said that 'patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.' In romney's case, it is religion. and I try not to ever judge another person's sincere religious beliefs. i make an exception for the man in the magic underwear.

In 2012 we needed someone to kick A$$. Romney turned out to be a pansy. Trump won because he fought all the way to election day. We live life on the edge of a knife with the fate of the world hanging like a thread on the decisions faceless unknowns that each day show up to do whatever they do. Some of the organizers get remember in history books. Romney forgotten. Trump, like Washington, Jackson, Lincoln and Reagan, remembered.

I’ve been soul searching whether to repay an old loan that the friend-lender has either forgotten about or has decided in his mind to forgive. After praying, I’ve decided that he intends to forgive it. Just like pierre delecto decided Trump only wanted personal gain from any Ukraine investigation of a possible political opponent’s son and further decided that it was a “high crime and misdemeanor” even though it was neither a crime nor a misdemeanor. Perhaps pierre thinks mis-demeanor is when your demeanor is inappropriate, like someone who rolls their eyes when they hear the nom de foule “pierre misdemeanor dilecto.”

Now he says he's "profoundly religious". Earlier he declared himself "severely conservative" (or something similar) during the 2012 campaign. He doth protest too much - both expressions are a bit off (i.e. no one talks like that, only someone making up their words). Maybe he's another wanna-be screenwriter.

So God spoke only to Romney and told him to vote to convict. Perhaps God actually spoke to the rest of the Republicans and told them not to convict. It takes a real egoist to think that the Deity only speaks to him.

Not surprising. It was either this or Rummey is seriously unbalanced and thinks he is "inspired by God and therefore can do no wrong". If Rummey is seeking favor amongst the "D.C. elites" he will suffer the same fate as most Republicans that chase that pot of gold. They are useful idiots and treacherous, not good for much. Like a tissue, blow your nose on it and throw it away.

First off, Rick Gorka is now a communications director for the Republican National Committee (RNC)...and he wants to keep his job. So, give Romney a shot. Yay, Rick Gorka! You get a cookie. But it also gives Mitt distance that will later allow him to challenge PDT as the third-party "moderate Republican" UNIPARTY candidate...and his motivation will be to displace PDT, cool revenge for his own denial and insults. Don't be surprised if Mitt doesn't actually see himself even a possible winner between the socialists and the MAG/KAG deplorables.

Romney believes what Mormonism teaches, which is that his do-gooder morality and successes for the mother church on earth guarantees him a planet in the afterlife where all his wives will be there with him if he bothers to call them by their "secret name." Mormonism is socialistic at its core, only involving a government-church, rather than secular government. I've never known of a truly conservative Mormon politician, ever.

Two peas in a pod: Bitter John McCain and jealous Mittens Pierre. Both failed at being good men. I am so sorry I voted for both in 2008 and 2012. But the alternative in both cases was too horrific to contemplate. I do thank Pierre though; had he won then we would not have President Trump now. His failure then is the country's success now.

Prosecutors in charge of the federal case against Roger Stone may have lied to the Department of Justice about their lengthy prison sentence recommendation for Stone, according to a new report. Fox News reported earlier today that DOJ was blindsided by the formal recommendation from operatives tapped by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller that Stone be sentenced to up to nine years in prison. A source told Fox that the sentence recommendation was “extreme, excessive, and grossly disproportionate” to Stone’s crimes. “The Department was shocked to see the sentencing recommendation in the filing in the Stone case last night,” the DOJ official

Former "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett was indicted Tuesday by a grand jury in Chicago after a special prosecutor re-investigated allegations he bogusly reported being the victim of a January 2019 hate-crime attack, officials said. Smollett, 37, was indicted on six counts related to making four separate false reports to Chicago Police Department officers, claiming he was the victim of a hate crime while "knowing he was not the victim of a crime," special prosecutor Dan Webb said in a statement released Tuesday afternoon. Webb was appointed by a Cook County judge to continue looking into the false allegations after the Cook County State’s Attorney Office dropped all charges against the actor.

It’s wouldn’t be a huge deal, except that this kind of hysterical reaction has now been normalized in American discourse, illustrating that once-rational people have either lost all sense of history or are willing to belittle the past for short-term political gain.

President Donald Trump had an unlikely ally in his fight against an anti-corruption lawsuit from congressional Democrats — Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut is leading a coalition of 186 House members and 29 senators alleging the president has unlawfully profited from foreign patronage at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., in violation of an ethics provision in the Constitution called the foreign emoluments clause. A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit dismissed the lawsuit on Feb. 7 on technical grounds, relying in part on a 2019 Ginsburg opinion.

The victory by President Trump and his team over the impeachment-pursuing Democrats was complete, and devastating. However, missing from the celebratory activities last week was one of Trump’s strongest, most consistent, and most loyal supporters – Roger Stone. Stone remains silenced under a federal court gag order that prevents him from publicly discussing anything about his conviction last November, even as he awaits sentencing for up to 25 years on February 20th. His case has been described as the last “loose end remaining from the Mueller investigation.” More accurately, it is the “last travesty of the Mueller investigation.”

The text messages in question were exchanges between disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page, the infamous texting duo who were previously reportedly romantically involved. The detail was buried in a three-sentence footnote, footnote 480, on page 344 of the Justice Department’s previously released 476-page Inspector General report on the FBI’s Russia collusion investigation, known as Crossfire Hurricane.

Two of the key witnesses in the Trump impeachment have been removed from their positions. Gordon Sondland is out as Ambassador to the European Union. Lt. Col Alexander Vindman has been reassigned from the National Security Council to the Pentagon. Democrats are crying foul, of course. But was it improper for Trump to take these personnel actions? Sondland’s case seems easy to me. Ambassadors serve at the pleasure of the President. Trump lost confidence in Sondland. Thus, his removal made sense. Vindman’s case is somewhat different and less easy for me. Unlike Sondland, he’s a career government employee and military man.

When most people think of a guillotine, they think of rivers of blood flowing during the French Revolution and during Hitler's ascendancy in Germany (when he guillotined around 16,500 people). Civilized countries do not decapitate people to gain political power. Nevertheless, Bre Kidman, an attorney who is challenging Senator Susan Collins for her Senate seat in Maine, has decided that a stylized image of a guillotine is the perfect logo for its campaign. (Kidman claims not to be either male or female and adopts the pronouns "they or them." This is consistent with Progressive demands that individuals who call themselves non-binary should be accorded plural pronouns.
