Original Article

Republican Sen. Mitt Romny (Utah) on Saturday denounced President Trump's firings of several inspector generals in various federal government offices as a "threat to accountable democracy." "The firings of multiple Inspectors General is unprecedented; doing so without good cause chills the independence essential to their purpose. It is a threat to accountable democracy and a fissure in the constitutional balance of power," Romney tweeted

says the first republican to ever vote to convict a President of his own party in history - and remember, he voted to convict and remove a sitting President without ONE specific identifiable crime enumerated in the case against the President. I think I would call that a threat to accountable democracy...

Doesn't he have some magic underwear to recharge or something? Seriously, he is along the same lines as Pelosi but not as smooth or likable. he is not and never was from Utah, just like the Hildebeast was never from New York. He just faked it to get a senate seat he couldn't win in his home state of Massachusetts. He is a phony and a scoundrel, and I want my vote back.

Mr. Romney, was it any threat to accountable democracy when Hillary Clinton would not allow an appointment of an AG to oversee the State Dept? What about when Sally Yates would not allow the AG to inspect the intelligence unit of the Justice Dept? Do you have any problems with any of that, sir? Lastly, I only hear from you when you have a stab in the back message for Trump. Do you ever have any positive messages for the country, or only snark?

We get it Romney. You're mad because the people voted Trump in as president instead of you. But it's time for you to put a sock in it. JUST SHUT THE FRACK UP! We can't afford any more of your tantrums. Our country is in one of the greatest crises in it's history and we simply cannot afford you undermining our President at this time. He can damn well fire anyone he wants. Dealing with this world wide pandemic and having to fight the GDrats for three years while they tried to overthrow our government. If you can't be a help with the fight against the evil democrats, just slink back to Utah and keep your damn mouth shut.

Mittens apparently doesn’t understand that he can fire any of these people he wants to fire and for any reason. The people he’s firing are more than likely Obizzo appointees and deep state members of the cabal operation working overtime to sabotage Trump. They are Mittens people and that why he is defending them. Shut up and go away ok. Your opinions are so irrelevant and so are you.

Pierre Delecto is a fool of the first order. The media would ignore him if he weren’t out there undermining the President. He is a tool for them, nothing more. Men like Romney are despicable because they relish kicking someone who they believe is inferior. While Mitt was buying and selling companies without any regard to the lives he was destroying, Donald Trump was actually building structures and employing people. Furthermore, we have read of numerous acts of charity and kindness done by the President, but I have yet to read one article regarding any Philanthropy of Romney. Jesus has a lot to say about sanctimonious self-promoters like Romney. I believed he called them whited sepulchers full of dead men’s bones.

Once again, Mitt Romney is biting the hand that helped him get elected. If he had valid complaints, it would not be so bad. But, his attacks are without merit. I hope the people of Utah remove him in the primaries the next time he comes up for re-election.

How about Romney's gutlessness and inability to stand up for the principles of his own party are not only a danger to our way of life, they are also the ultimate in self-promotion. Romney thought that he could get the media to LIKE him and that they would say nice things about him if he bent over and let them drive him home. What a TOOL. My Dad would have said that Romney was "afraid to do and afraid to don't don't". I would just say that a Republican who crafts his campaign in such a way as to woo the media and the Left is a Republican who should be either ignored or actively campaigned against.

Why is Mitt parroting Democratic talking points? Because he is a closet Democrat! Really have to wonder whose payroll Mitt is on. It would be enlightening. McConnell needs to remove him from all committees. The RNC needs to kick him out of the Republican party. The good citizens of Utah need to recall Mitt and send him packing. Mitt is a backstabbing crook that should never be trusted with anything.

His shiny Bryl Cream look has worn off and we now see what was underneath the gloss. Frankly, I'm happy he lost in 2012 even if it meant 4 more years of Obama, because those 4 years gave us president Trump. Romney is the new darling of the DC social circuit going to all the cocktail parties and lobbyist events. Does he ever go to Utah? He turn out to be the quintessential Washington DC RINO and never to be trusted.

It has been said for a longtime that the Republican Party is actually the “Stupid” Party. It’s long past time for serious Republicans to stop going on believing that they should be nice and play by the Marquis of Queensbury rules when dealing with leftist and liberal Democrat politicians and their appointees. Mittens Romney is a very naive, wimpy, and is not in any way a street smart politician. That was easy to see when he allowed Candy Crowley and Barack Obama to essentially kick him into the dirty during a past Presidential debate. Romney is first and foremost a member of the globalist investor class and as such has no use for President Trump’s “Make America Great Again” political agenda.

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) on Thursday praised former Defense Secretary James Mattis, who, on Wednesday, offered a blistering critique of President Trump as a divisive leader. "Gen. Mattis’s letter was stunning and powerful. Gen. Mattis is a man of extraordinary sacrifice. He's an American patriot. He's an individual whose judgment I respect, and I think the world of him," Romney told reporters. "If I ever had to choose somebody to be in a foxhole with, it would be with a Gen. Mattis. What a wonderful, wonderful man," Romney added. Corrections*

Donald Trump wrote Thursday that he would campaign against Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski over her praise of comments made by Gen. James Mattis, who the previous day lashed out at the president over threats to use the U.S. military to put down nationwide protests over the death of African-American George Floyd. Posting to his Twitter account, Trump vented over Murkowski’s public rebuke and vowed to head to her home state of Alaska and campaign on behalf of her as-yet-unnamed opponent in 2022.

During the 2012 presidential campaign, former Vice President Joe Biden was a sharp critic of Republican nominee Mitt Romney’s work for investment firm Bain Capital, but now Bain executives are helping fuel Biden’s 2020 presidential bid. Bain co-founder Joshua Bekenstein and his wife Anita each donated $250,000 to Biden’s super PAC in April, Federal Election Commission (FEC) records showed. The donations accounted for the majority of the PAC’s fundraising in April, according to FEC records. Additionally, both Joshua and Anita Bekenstein donated the federal maximum of $5,600 — split between the primary and general election — to Biden’s campaign, FEC records

Gavin Newsom's most recent directive limiting churches to 25% of their normal maximum capacity, with an absolute maximum of 100 people at any service.

As states across the country begin the process of reopening, Americans continue to battle over the methods governors and local authorities have used to tackle the coronavirus pandemic. Unfortunately, many states and localities have set up arbitrary and, in many cases, absurd rules that do little more than aggravate citizens and almost nothing to stop the spread of the virus. For instance, some Americans have been pulled over and ticketed for merely driving, hardly an activity that is likely to spread disease. One Pennsylvania woman received a $200 ticket for violating Gov. Tom Wolf’s statewide stay-at-home order when she said she had merely gone on a drive to relieve her quarantine restlessness,

Oh, Mitt. Mitt Romney what are we going to do with you. You haven’t been a total pain in the ass, which was a fear—but you’ve had your moments, sir. You voted with Democrats on one of the politically motivated impeachment articles against Donald Trump. You forever betrayed the Republican Party, this president, and should be relegated to the kids' table for all coming time. Then, you’re all worried about Donald Trump firing all these inspector generals, which was already in the works because most if not all are Obama holdovers.

The fate of the 2020 general election could hang on two congressional districts, one in Maine and the other tucked away in Nebraska. Maine and Nebraska are the only two states in the country that split their Electoral College votes by congressional district while also rewarding the statewide victor, giving Democrats extra opportunities to pick up votes in otherwise Republican strongholds. And with the fall fight between President Trump and Joe Biden set to be a tight battle for the White House, every vote will matter on Nov. 3.

Mattis’s letter was stunning and powerful. Gen. Mattis is a man of extraordinary sacrifice. He's an American patriot.

Members of the Minneapolis City Council on Sunday announced plans to disband their embattled police department in the wake of worldwide protests over the killing of George Floyd at the hands of cops. The nine councilmembers, who form a veto-proof majority, committed to de-funding the department and moving toward a community-based public safety model during a rally at the city’s Powderhorn Park, local reports said. “It is clear that our system of policing is not keeping our communities safe,” said council president Lisa Bender, according to Fox9. “Our efforts at incremental reform have failed, period.” “It’s our commitment to end policing

Elmer Fudd is still hunting wabbits, but now he hasn’t got a wifle. The Looney Tunes cartoons have been remade for a modern audience, and Fudd is no longer allowed to have a gun. Warner Bros has commissioned a new animation series featuring the classic characters, including Bugs Bunny, which sticks close to the spirit of the originals. But viewers may notice a difference when it comes Fudd—whose catchphrase was: “Shhh. Be vewy, vewy quiet. I’m hunting wabbits.” In response to US gun violence, the showrunners will not include firearms in Fudd’s arsenal.(Snip) “We’re not doing guns,” said Peter Browngardt,

The Minneapolis mayor is asking for federal help cleaning up and rebuilding his city after rioters caused at least $55 million worth of damage through looting, burning, and defacing public and private property. That cost estimate is likely to increase in the coming days as government officials continue to tally the damage done in the wake of George Floyd’s death, Mayor Jacob Frey said according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz and the state’s congressional delegation are also pushing the Trump administration and Congress for funding. On Tuesday, city officials released an initial estimate of $55 million in damage done to at least 220 buildings.

Amidst winds of change as America confronts its race issue, a reparations resolution dismissed by many as the stuff of dreams, was unanimously passed by a City Council committee Friday and is scheduled to go before the full council June 17. The resolution would establish a “Chicago Citizens of African Descent Reparations Commission” to investigate how one of the most segregated cities in the nation could best make amends for the impact of slavery. Up for discussion by the Committee on Human Relations Thursday, black and Latino aldermen called the resolution timely and necessary, in the aftermath of the cellphone-recorded
