Should Utah Sen. Mitt Romney attempt another shot at the White House — but this time on the independent ticket, with former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as his running mate? The hypothetical Romney-Bloomberg ticket would give millions and millions of independent and moderate Democratic and Republican voters stuck in the middle a solid choice for president, which doesn’t exist now between democratic-socialist Bernie Sanders and current White House occupant and Twitter-flamethrower President Donald Trump. That’s what author, Maryland business executive and former U.S. Senate candidate Neal Simon wrote in his article he shared with Lee Lonsberry on KSL NewsRadio's show Live Mic.

However...(sorry for 2nd post) watch out for Warren. She's practicing Trump attacks on minimike and the Dems would love to show Trump beating up on a woman. Trump would never remain quiet and take it like mikey just did, so any response to her pre-planned verbal pummelings will be met with cries of Misogynist Bully. Looks bad and that's the best shot they got.

First this article floating a Romney-Bloomberg ticket, and another article where Hillary is calling President Trump a puppet of Putin. How lame can you get? These fools have lost all their credibility, but they have to persist. They literally have nothing left.

Articles like this affirm my assumptions about journalists: 1) They see their role as an "agent of change." Principally, as propaganda generators and dialogue moderators. The dialogue is always focused on how to facilitate bigger government. 2) They think I'm an ignorant racist. "Yeah, just slap two, rich white guys on the ticket and those mid-America rubes will be falling all over themselves to vote for them." What this article really tells me is the Left has no message. They are just a big propaganda machine in search of power through any tactic imaginable. In this case, two RINOs on whom they have a pile of dirt.

Go for it. If successful it would ensure a Trump second term. A split electoral college goes to the House with, and this is important, 1 vote per state delegation. 1 vote. There are a ton more red states than blue ones ensuring a Trump victory.

What the hell is #8 talking about? Ummm . . . did you just crawl out from under a rock or what? News Flash: Trump ran against a woman last time, and in case you didn't notice (obviously you didn't), Hillary sent plenty of loaded bombs Trump's way. He appears to have handled them just fine. P.S. We prefer that someone NOT remain quiet and "take it like Mikey did." But, hey, if you want a rollover man, try voting for Mitt!

There is no way the two parties will ever unite, until the socialists and Democrats are minimized into irrelevance. Those people are lacking the common sense gene and are beyond help. Trump has shown the way for the rest of us and we cannot, must not let the light go out. When he says America will never become socialist, he means it. Think about it!

A former governor of Massachusetts is offering himself as a Republican alternative to President Donald Trump. No, it’s not Mitt Romney. Bill Weld has no illusions about winning the GOP nomination but says he’s running because it’s time for somebody to stand up and plant a flag. “The flag is decency. The flag is integrity. It’s not an issue. It’s not free trade,” he told the Deseret News and KSL editorial boards Friday during a campaign stop in Utah. Weld was scheduled to tour the Latter-day Saint Humanitarian Center and visit Utah Valley University. Weld sees Utah among the top three states (behind Vermont, ahead of Massachusetts) where he

The U.S. has a Russia dilemma. How can it tamp down Russian aggression without engaging its military? That question will continue to play out in the halls of Congress and on the plains of eastern Ukraine. While impeachment proceedings cast a spotlight on Ukraine, Russian tanks and artillery occupy the country’s eastern flank. More than 3,000 civilians have been killed and 7,000 wounded since Russian forces invaded in 2014, according to the UN Human Rights Council. About 1.6 million people have fled, becoming refugees within their own country.

On Tuesday, news broke that the Queen had banned Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from marketing the “Sussex Royal” brand. Friday morning, another story broke, saying that Meghan was whining about this because she and Harry had already invested money in selling themselves. Also on Friday, the Queen won and Meghan backed down. Queen Elizabeth comes from a generation that holds that you can’t eat your cake and have it. In other words, when you make choices, you have to take both the benefit and the burden of that choice. Meghan Markle, on the other hand, is a child of the Veruca Salt generation.

A newly discovered species of snail has been named after teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg, scientists announced in a new study published Thursday. The critter, which was discovered in Brunei on the island of Borneo, now has the scientific name Craspedotropis gretathunbergae. "The newly described snail belongs to the so-called caenogastropods, a group of land snails known to be sensitive to drought, temperature extremes and forest degradation," snail expert and study lead author Menno Schilthuizen said in a statement. The tiny mollusk, which is about 2 millimeters in size, was discovered by citizen-scientists from the tour group Taxon Expeditions

Eastwood expressed support for “certain things” President Trump has done but isn’t a fan of how divided politics has become. “The politics has gotten so ornery,” he said as he hunched his shoulders during an interview with the Wall Street Journal's Tunku Varadarajan. Eastwood said he wished Trump would conduct himself “in a more genteel way, without tweeting and calling people names.

The 38-year-old complained to her inner circle that using the name 'shouldn't even be an issue in the first place and it's not like they want to be in the business of selling T-shirts and pencils,' the insider said.

It’s taken just 45 days for a royal pipe dream to well and truly bite the dust. Last month, Harry and Meghan tried to bounce the ancient institution into giving them a ‘progressive new role’ as part-time royals, part-time money makers. Harry’s 93-year-old grandmother doesn’t take kindly to being bounced or indeed being blindsided. With British regulations and royal rules on her side, the Queen has imposed her final restriction on the couple embarking on a self-imposed exile. Sussex Royal can be no more. A freshly branded website will have to be re-branded. Their supporters will argue it’s no great loss.
