Sen. Mitt Romney is leading a bipartisan group of senators in an effort to curb President Trump’s ability to remove troops from Germany after the commander-in-chief opted to withdraw tens of thousands of US soldiers from the region. Romney (R-Utah) introduced a measure Monday alongside Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Chris Coons (D-Del.), Tim Kaine (D-Va.) and Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) prohibiting the White House from reducing the number of active-duty troops in the country below 34,500 without Congress confirming that such a move would not negatively impact European alliances or NATO.  Correction*

The butt hurt is strong with this one. Trump played Mutt for an apologetic fool, then embarrassingly mocked and threw him away like a needle-tracked hooker fluffing for $10 and a bag of chips at a truck stop. Mitt is scorned, and willing to discard his dignity in his quest for all-out sell-out. This will end very badly for this carpetbagging Judas

Former Manhattan real estate developer President Donald Trump is now offering additional rent free space in Mitt Romney's head. His listing notes that the space comes festooned with posters and paraphernalia from multiple failed political campaigns but is otherwise unfurnished.

Our military have been stationed in Germany since WWII paying for their protection. Merkel won't even pony up her 2% for Nato. It'll cost GE more than 2% to come up with their own military which is what she's whinning about. Enough of siphoning off our tax money for them. Bring the troops home.

Ridiculous that we have so many troops (any troops?) in Germany now. Germany has made critical energy deals with Russia and obviously does not consider it a threat. Germany likes the economic benefit of troops spending money in Germany. That's all that this is about.

This year would have been the year to run someone against Graham. Should have done that and put him out to pasture. Yes, let's reduce our military in Germany and place them in Poland. I'm all for it and I know that Poland will stand with us during hard times.

The beer is good, the schnitzel excellent, and the people are fun. I have a lot of wonderful memories there. The thing is, protecting Germany was just cover. The whole purpose of being there was to protect the world FROM Germany. Twice in 50 years they tried to take over the world. They believe it is their destiny and will probably try it again, but not soon. The German's have become as sissified as the Brits since they allowed the Muslim invasion. It will take generations to reverse the destruction of their culture and genetics.

We don't have that many troops in Germany. There has been a drastic reduction especially in combat units. There is no point in keeping them there since the retiree homesteaders are moving or dying off. The only benefit to the US is to keep contractors at work and even then the numbers have gone way down. Nevertheless I'm sure General Dynamics, Lockheed and their subs want to maintain some cash flow. There are already temporary unit rotations to Poland and the Baltics so it's time to cut the cord.

#7, Graham had 3 primary opponents and I voted for one of them - Duke Buckner - who is super conservative and happens to be black. I guess that most people just automatically vote for the incumbent and don’t bother to look into who else is running. My own husband did that. Sad. Tragic.

FTA: ''...without Congress confirming that such a move would not negatively impact European alliances or NATO.'' There you have it. Foreigners ahead of Americans. Taxpayers to continue funding socialist government's protection. Especially Germany, the country that cost Americans billions in treasure and tens of thousands of lives. It's about time we are repaid for rebuilding their economy and country since WW2.

#13 is on to it. Germany hasn't been a threat in decades. Since the 1970's its chief function is to serve as a possible perk for young recruits (you could be stationed in Germany - how'd you like to go to Oktoberfest every year?) like all the bases in Europe. If we left, Germany would be more like to at least try to build a real military. Bring 'em home!

Another degree of distance from PDT.

Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Chris Coons (D-Del.), Tim Kaine (D-Va.) and Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), among others.

Tom Ivory, the founder of the Baker Street Bread Co. in Philadelphia’s Chestnut Hill section, fought a valiant effort for years to rein in bank fees by imposing a minimum credit card purchase of $10. But more customers wanted to go cashless, and Mr. Ivory eventually relented and accepted plastic for any transaction, no matter how small. About 78% of the purchases at the cafe and store are now paid through credit cards or other electronic transfer — up from 10% just five years ago.   Correction*

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is turning to a must-pass defense bill as a way to block offshore drilling off the coast of Florida, but fellow drilling opponents worry his amendment opens the door for the Department of Defense to speed extraction in the sensitive area. Rubio is making multiple efforts to block any drilling off the state’s Gulf Coast, home to multiple military installments that use the waters for training. One amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) would extend the current moratorium on offshore drilling in the area through 2032.

The American Civil Liberties Union and President Donald Trump don’t agree on a lot. But in 2018, Trump signed a law called the First Step Act that had the backing of a broad range of supporters including the ACLU, Republicans and Democrats and Kanye West, who had lobbied the president during a White House visit. The law gives prisoners convicted of federal crimes a chance to get their time behind bars shortened and lets elderly and sick inmates seek compassionate releases.

The Trump administration on Thursday night argued in a legal brief filed to the Supreme Court that the entire Affordable Care Act (ACA) should be invalidated. The legal filing, while expected, makes official the Trump administration's position in the Supreme Court against the health law months ahead of the election, at a time when Democrats are hammering President Trump over his position on health care. Overturning the ACA would take away health coverage for about 20 million people, and the stakes are even higher given the effects of the current pandemic.

Then, six years later, Biden inserted his foot directly into his mouth (again) when he championed the notorious (and ill-named) Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act (BAPCPA). A more appropriate name could have been the Act to Protect Credit Card Companies and Shaft Students and Workers.

According to the poll conducted by the Washington based thinktank the Democracy Institute, President Trump is neck and neck with his rival Joe Biden on 47 percent. However, Mr Trump would win in the electoral college system by 309 to 229 delegates because he is on course to win the crucial swing states including Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin where he outpolls Vice President Biden by 48 percent to 44 percent.The findings come as the US President went to the iconic Mount Rushmore to make a speech attacking “the angry mobs” who want to erase America’s history.
