    Utah's U.S. Senators are raising some disapproving eyebrows with those polled by UtahPolicy.com/Y2 Analytics. The new poll released Sunday shows Romney has a 46-51% approval rating (46% “strongly” or “somewhat” approve, while 51% “strongly” or “somewhat” disapprove), with 11 percent reporting they don’t know.
  • Rashida Tlaib and Her BFFs-Hanging out with praisers of Hezbollah.

    Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Michigan) has received a lot of criticism for the surpassing crudity of her declaration about the President — “We’re going to impeach the motherf***er”– and in the last few days for offering the phrase for sale on a t-shirt — but less attention has been given to the company she keeps. As far back as her swearing-in, and at a private dinner she held that same day, many unsavory “Palestinian” activists were in attendance. It should be remembered that at her victory party, Tlaib wrapped herself not in the American, but in the “Palestinian” flag, and...
  • Supreme Court Throws Out Michigan Gerrymandering Ruling in Win for GOP

    The Supreme Court granted the Michigan Republican party a win on Monday by throwing out a lower court ruling that required dozens of congressional and legislative districts to be redrawn due to concerns they had been gerrymandered by Republicans. The high court’s 5-to-4 decision reverses a ruling by the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati, which demanded the state redraw nine congressional districts and 25 state districts by August 1. Monday’s decision also follows the Supreme Court’s ruling in June that it would leave gerrymandering cases to state courts. “Partisan gerrymandering claims present political questions beyond the reach...

    Earlier today, the Atlantic’s McKay Coppins published a lengthy profile on Mitt Romney, apparently part of Romney’s effort to set himself up as the noble Republican foil to an out-of-control president. These sorts of pieces, which are more about narrative setting than anything else, typically don’t contain a lot of new information, but this had one notable exception. About midway through, the usually guarded senator revealed that, just like fellow lone-voice-of reason-haver James Comey, he was the owner of a secret Twitter account. At one point, as Coppins asked him about the #IMPEACHMITTROMNEY hashtag Trump tweeted into being earlier this...

    The newly rebellious senator has become an outspoken dissident in Trump’s Republican Party, just in time for the president’s impeachment trial..... Mitt Romney is leaning forward in his chair, his eyes flashing, his voice sharp. It’s a strange look for the 72-year-old senator, who typically affects a measured, somber tone when discussing Donald Trump’s various moral deficiencies. But after weeks of escalating combat with the president—over Ukraine, and China, and Syria, and impeachment—the gentleman from Utah suddenly appears ready to unload.

    Sen. Mitt Romney confirmed that he runs an alter ego Twitter account under the alias Pierre Delecto. A profile on the Utah Republican published by The Atlantic on Sunday revealed that Romney operates a separate account to monitor political news and commentary but didn't expose his handle. “I won’t give you the name of it,” he told the outlet, but "I’m following 668 people.” A reporter for Slate later uncovered what she believed to be Romney's account under the handle @qaws9876 and the name Pierre Delecto. The author of the Atlantic piece then asked the senator if it was indeed...

    Earlier today leftist tool Mitt Romney was featured in a lengthy anti-Trump expose’ in The Atlantic. During the interview Mitt admitted to having a second secret Twitter account following 668 people. Via the Atlantic: That’s kind of what he does,” Romney said with a shrug, and then got up to retrieve an iPad from his desk. He explained that he uses a secret Twitter account—“What do they call me, a lurker?”—to keep tabs on the political conversation. “I won’t give you the name of it,” he said, but “I’m following 668 people.” Swiping at his tablet, he recited some of...

    CNN contributor Van Jones told Democrats the President Trump impeachment issue was a no-win situation. "It’s a tricky thing, the impeachment process, because for some Republicans, it makes them want to rally around the flag," Jones said Thursday on CNN. "When I was anti-Bill Clinton from the Left in the '90s, and then they tried to impeach him, suddenly Clinton was my best friend. I was like, 'Leave Bill Clinton alone.' So, I think you get crosscurrents in this thing, and at the same time, the Democrats are in a lose-lose situation," he said. Jones, 51, also warned that Democrats...

    VIDEO Following the first Democrat candidate debate in Detroit, CNN's Van Jones claimed that "WE" are all still in therapy over the 2016 election. Well, Jones was probably thinking of himself as well as his CNN colleagues along with many other liberals but for the rest of us, WE are still celebrating the 2016 election results. However, as depressing as the 2016 election result was for liberals, it will be nothing compared to their meltdown coming in 2020 following Trump's re-election. Look for the liberals to act as if they are infected with the rage virus from the movie "28...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) told the Atlantic on Sunday that he believes the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry investigating President Donald Trump will serve as an “inflection point in American history.” Atlantic staff writer McKay Coppins released an interview on Sunday detailing extended conversations with Romney regarding his views on the U.S. Senate, his attacks on President Trump, as well as his opinions on impeachment. Coppins wrote that while most Republicans have backed the president amidst the impeachment inquiry, Romney continues to stay “open to the idea that the president may need to be evicted from the Oval Office.”Sen. Romney said that he believes that...

    Fox News ^ | 10/6/19 | Leland Vittert, Melissa Leon
    House Democrats believe they have the 217 votes needed to pass articles of impeachment against President Trump stemming from his Ukraine call -- enough votes to impeach Trump and send articles to the Senate -- even before their planned hearings or formal investigation. A senior member of the House Democratic Caucus told Fox News on Sunday it's unlikely House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., will give in to the president's demand for an "inquiry vote." The source said that while leadership hasn't officially whipped or nose-counted a vote to "impeach," they believed the numbers were there based on the 227 votes...

    Michigan Independent Rep. Justin Amash blasted former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as a “Donald Trump asset,” arguing in a Friday night Twitter post that Clinton’s criticism of Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard will only “drive many people into the arms of Donald Trump.” “The thing we know for sure is that Hillary Clinton is a Donald Trump asset,” Amash, a frequent Trump critic who recently left the Republican Party to become an Independent, tweeted Friday night. “Hillary does — and did — drive many people into the arms of Donald Trump. Her attack on Tulsi does likewise. In my...

    The first member of the House of Representatives of Palestinian origin, Rashida Tlaib managed to change the momentum on the Palestinian question. She is fighting tooth and nail, with three other Democratic women representatives, to get Donald Trump removed from office. Michigan, bordering Canada, is best known for its once flourishing automotive industry. But the 2008 election of a Muslim woman of Palestinian origin to the Michigan House of Representatives revealed another aspect: Michigan’s strong Arab-American community. “Miss First” elected with 84% of the vote The eldest daughter of a Palestinian couple of modest background, Rashida Tlaib is the only...

    Before progressive darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) officially endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for president on Saturday, the duo sat down with The Intercept to discuss the need for a progressive grassroots movement in America. According to Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez is one of the most influential people in Congress and she has made great strides over the last year. "It's hard to believe that a year ago today you were waiting tables, is that correct?" Sanders asked AOC. "I cannot recall any political in modern history of this country who, in the course of one year – and she's the youngest woman...

    President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign believes the ongoing fight over impeachment will rally the party’s base and make the difference in key races next year. Members of the Trump campaign’s communications team told MLive that House Democrats only flipped Republican seats in 2018 because 8.8 million people who voted for Trump in 2016 stayed home during the midterm elections. Tim Murtaugh, communications director for Trump’s 2020 campaign, said House Democrats’ ongoing impeachment inquiry will bolster Trump’s prospects of reelection and GOP candidates’ chances of victory down the ballot. In 2018, GOP candidates lost races for all statewide offices, control of...

    White House senior adviser Jared Kushner will lead a US delegation to Israel at the end of the month to meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Blue and White chairman Benny Gantz, a senior administration official said on Thursday. Kushner has been leading President Donald Trump's effort to develop a peace plan for Israelis and Palestinians. After proposing a $60 billion aid package for the region last summer, he has yet to unveil a proposed political plan that gets at the thorniest issues in the decades-old conflict, with Netanyahu struggling to form a governing coalition. The official, speaking on condition...

    Kellogg's has launched an LGBTQ-themed cereal — "All Together" — to promote diversity and acceptance "no matter who you love." The $19.99 special edition box includes six individual packages, each of which contains Corn Flakes, Froot Loops, Frosted Flakes, Frosted Mini Wheats, Raisin Bran, and Rice Krispies. The company said "All Together" is "a symbol of acceptance no matter how you look, where you're from or who you love." Kellogg's also noted that it became an official partner of GLAAD to celebrate Spirit Day, "the largest most visible anti-bullying campaign in the world where millions wear purple to stand up...

    FULL TITLE: Jason Chaffetz: Pelosi and impeachment – There have already been 3 votes. Here's why there may not be a fourth Speaker Pelosi isn't refusing to hold a vote on impeachment. She is refusing to hold a fourth vote on impeachment. There have already been three votes. They all failed. Miserably. In other words, Congress has explicitly voted NOT to pursue impeachment. In December 2017, January 2018, and against in July 2019 under Pelosi's leadership, the House held votes on whether to open an impeachment inquiry. The results weren't even close. All three votes came up as "privileged resolutions."...

I think there’s gonna be a trial. I’m really worried. Why aren’t you?” I’m getting a lot of emails that have that as a basic theme. I’ll go through it again, but let me give you a very simple reason why I think they aren’t going to actually have an official vote and transfer all this to a trial in the Senate. That’s why they’re not gonna...
