Original Article

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) supports a Senate vote on President Trump’s forthcoming Supreme Court nominee, he announced Tuesday morning.“My decision regarding a Supreme Court nomination is not the result of a subjective test of ‘fairness’ which, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder,” Romney said in a statement. “It is based on the immutable fairness of following the law, which in this case is the Constitution and precedent.”He echoed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in noting that the “historical precedent of election year nominations is that the Senate generally does not confirm an opposing party’s nominee but does confirm a nominee of its own.”

Somebody told him. Nice job you got here. Shame something should happen to it. Bottom line he hates Obama more than he hates Trump.

Maybe conservatives in Utah are tired of his political games and want him to support their values. Being a 70+ year old freshman Senator doesn't scare off potential challengers in a future primary.

The process is going forward. Senator Corey Gardner is on board. So far only Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins are weak kneed. Collins voter for Justice Cavanaugh. Things are looking good for the President and for the United States.

Remember Mitch and NeverTrumper Republicans club there in DC cannot ignore something. They see rally after rally, in state after state, of intensely devoted President Trump voters. WTP will never ever forget if Senate Republicans mess up this historic opportunity to get this SC seat filled with another conservative and do it quickly. We will not put up with the usual games of these outlier RINOs - not this time. Lamar and Lindsey get it. Thank you in advance Mitt for doing the right thing.

Reports of recent polling show Mitt polling less popular in Utah than Donald Trump. Mitt will not become president in 2024 by adopting the Al Gore tactic of loosing his "home" state. Mitt can smell (but not drink) the coffee.

Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell have been doing a head count. So has Mitt Romney, Chuckie Schumer, and Nasty Nancy. Trump and Mitch believe they have the votes. Mitt knows to lay low. Chuckie and Nancy only have hysterics. Dems know they have to take back the Senate to get at Trump. Its easier to steal a Senate election than a Presidential election. The Republicans had best be on top of their game if they don't want that to happen.

Just saw his press Q&A in the Capitol hallway. First, he looks awful. He is ill or he has aged a lot or both. He may finally be under pressure to do the right thing for those who elected him. He has been a traitor to his constituents in Utah, who cannot all be global Wall Street types.

Believe Utah has been one of the States who've pushed hardest for Roe v Wade to be overturned, so Mitt would be voting how his State would want. There is no guarantee Roe will be overturned even if there's a 6-3 Republican nominated SCOTUS, and people should realize how many states have laws already in-place should Roe be overturned that would allow abortion. But, it would be back where it should be, with the individual States determining any restrictions or limits. Presumably, Virginia, who's governor talked about after birth abortion being an option in his state, would be among the states with the most expansive view.

WASHINGTON— President Donald Trump on Wednesday again declined to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses the Nov. 3 presidential election.“We’re going to have to see what happens,” Trump said at a news conference, responding to a question about whether he’d commit to a peaceful transfer of power. “You know that I’ve been complaining very strongly about the ballots, and the ballots are a disaster.”It is highly unusual that a sitting president would express less than complete confidence in the American democracy’s electoral process. But he also declined four years ago to commit to honoring the election results if his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, won.

Dinesh D’Souza has become the master of the conservative political documentary film genre, starting with his first offering, “2016: Obama’s America,” which examined the roots of then-President Barack Obama’s desire to fundamentally transform the United States. Obama, D’Souza argued, saw the U.S. as fundamentally unjust, particularly in matters of race and wealth distribution. “Trump Card,” the fifth of D’Souza’s films, picks up in a sense where “Obama’s America” ended, but this time the enemy is the “deep state” and the democratic socialists.

California Governor Gavin Newsom announced Wednesday that the state will ban sales of gas-powered vehicles, effective in 2035. Newsom said that the “audacious” goal was necessary to achieve the state’s goal of 100% renewable energy by 2045. Newsom said that his new executive order would “eliminate” the sales of “internal combustion engines” and move to electric vehicles — a move that he said would create jobs and allow California to “dominate” the market, and address climate change. Those who currently own gas-powered vehicles would still be allowed to operate them and to sell them on the used market.

But the McCains have until now stopped short of endorsing Trump's rivals. Cindy McCain cited the decades long friendship between her family and Biden's and their bond as the parents of children serving in the military. “He supports the troops and knows what it means for someone who has served.”

Donald Trump has outsourced his Middle East policy to his son-in-law Jared Kushner. At best, it would be a waste of time, as Kushner had no experience in foreign policy. At worst, he will use this opportunity to line his own pockets. That was one of the many lines of attacks waged by the mainstream media on President Trump. Why is amateur Kushner in the White House at all, they asked indignantly? Then something unexpected happened: The United Arab Emirates and Bahrain announced peace deals with Israel. This good news for the world was bad news for the media.

As the Senate prepares for yet another brutal Supreme Court nomination fight, one particularly sensitive issue is creating apprehension among Democrats: what to do with 87-year-old Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking member of the Judiciary Committee. Feinstein, the oldest member of the Senate, is widely respected by senators in both parties, but she has noticeably slowed in recent years. Interviews with more than a dozen Democratic senators and aides show widespread concern over whether the California Democrat is capable of leading the aggressive effort Democrats need against whoever President Donald Trump picks to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The first presidential debate is next Tuesday, and I don't see Biden surviving. His campaign has been playing "hide the Crypt-Keeper" since spring, occasionally proving to the public that he's still ticking by having him tussle with a teleprompter while "objective journalists" participate in make-believe interviews. Biden's cognitive decline is now so steep that he begins reading pre-written answers to pre-written questions, forgets what he's doing halfway through, and settles for stringing syllables together that sound English-y in a non–native speaker sort of way. He is a man forever in search of a thought but finding none
