  • WaPo’s Jennifer Rubin: Dems Will Take The House In 2018 And Then Push To Impeach Trump

    Saturday, The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin predicted on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” that the Democrats will take control of the House in the 2018 midterm elections and then move to impeach President Donald Trump. Host Joy Reid asked, “I want to do a quick round robin and take your guys’ temperature on the likelihood of impeachment — impeachment with Republicans leading it, impeachment with Democrats leading it, or no impeachment at all.(snip)
  • House delays Obamacare vote, denying Trump 100-day win

    Republican legislators in the House of Representatives have pushed back a vote to repeal Obamacare until next week, it was reported on Thursday. That means President Donald Trump's hopes for a major legislative 'win' before the expiration of his first 100 days in office appear to be on life support. Trump was eager to resuscitate an earlier Republican bid to pass a health care bill that would have replaced the Affordable Care Act, the signature piece of legislation passed by his predecessor, Barack Obama.< But House Speaker Paul Ryan and his senior GOP colleagues failed to muster the necessary number...

    Mitt Romney is unfit to be a senator from Utah, and if Orrin Hatch has to run again to keep him from becoming one, he should. I don't dislike Mitt, I just love Utah. And Utah ought to have a senator who is a Utahn at heart. And who knows and loves the state and its people. Who can go into any town and find folks he knows, stories he can tell, connections he has made. It is a broad, rich and diverse state, made up of pioneers. People who, whether they came in 1847 or yesterday, have some grit...

    Cybercast News Service ^ | April 12, 2017 | 4:24 PM EDT | Michael W. Chapman
    Members of the North Carolina General Assembly introduced a bill on Tuesday, citing the 10th Amendment, which affirms that the U.S. Supreme Court exceeded its authority under the Constitution and in relation to the “decree of Almighty God” by legalizing same-sex marriage, and contends that the Obergefell v. Hodges decision “is null and void” in North Carolina and that the Tar Heel state shall only recognize marriages between one man and one woman. The legislation explains that North Carolina seeks to follow the 2012 law that was established in Section 6 of Article XIV of the North Carolina Constitution, which...

    Associated Press ^ | Apr 11, 2017 4:15 PM EDT
    It turns out Mitt Romney’s “binders full of women” are actual binders after all — filled with the resumes of women who hoped to land jobs in his administration as governor. The Boston Globe reports Tuesday that it was shown the binders by a former Romney aide. The two white three-ring binders contain about 200 cover letters and resumes with some handwritten notes. […] The binders — and the resumes — were the result of an effort to get more women into state government in Massachusetts after Romney defeated Democratic nominee and then-state Treasurer Shannon O’Brien for governor in 2002....

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he has reached out to former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney about possibly running for the Senate — if a vacancy opens in Utah. There has been much speculation about whether Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah will retire instead of running for re-election. The 83-year-old Hatch has fueled some of it. …

    Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) says he would consider retiring if Mitt Romney ran to replace him. Hatch told National Journal in a Wednesday interview that he hasn't made a decision yet on whether he will run for reelection in 2018. "I know I made a comment that I'll likely run for reelection. I haven't made that final determination," he said. "There are a bunch of reasons to do it, a bunch of reasons not to do it."
  • Is Trump silencing Ryan like he did Romney?

    03/17/2017 7:43:19 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 20 replies
    If you follow the logic of an unnamed White House staffer in the Atlantic, the whole idea that former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney was being considered to be President Trump's secretary of state was a ruse from the beginning. Romney was one of Trump's biggest critics before the election. And after Trump declined to pick him for secretary of state, how could he criticize Trump going forward and not have it look like sour grapes? “ ‘Judas Iscariot got 30 pieces of silver; Mitt Romney got a dish of frog legs at Jean-Georges. And even at that, it was the appetizer...

    Facing a sea of antagonistic, left wing Washington reporters, President Donald Trump should have opened his mesmerizing White House press conference last week this way: "Most of you covered me (pause) ... None of you voted for me." That would have been a play on the words President Barack Obama used at his first appearance before the White House Correspondents Dinner in May 2009, shortly after he was first elec 1

    Bill Maher would “happily” hand over the $1 million he donated to then-President Barack Obama in 2012 to Mitt Romney if it would alter history. HBO’s “Real Time” host sat down with CNN’s Van Jones for an interview set to air Friday night and discussed the law of unintended consequences now that President Trump is the 45th U.S. commander in chief. The comedian lamented his Priorities USA Action donation aimed at stopping Mr. Romney’s presidential ambitions. “Oh, the Bush years. I wish,” Mr. Mahertold the CNN host. “You know, I gave Obama a million dollars. You know that, right? His...

    Any news story involving Romney running for any office is postworthy by definition for a veteran Romney trollblogger like me. But let’s be real: A freshman senator at age … 71, which is what he’d be on election day 2018? As good as he looks and as healthy as he seems, it’s rare — maybe even unprecedented — for a senator to be popularly elected to a first full term in his 70s. This list notes 12 who were 75 or older when they were first seated, but nine were appointed to fill vacancies and two more were chosen...

    Former Governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney could run for the United States Senate in 2018, according to a Friday interview with Deseret news. The former presidential candidate will not commit to a Senate run, but refuses to rule out the possibility. “I don’t have any predictions on what I might do. I’m not going to open a door and I’m not going to close a door. All doors are open,” Romney said after mentioning the 2018 Senate race.

    Goodbye, Boy Scouts. You fools. You invertebrates. You caved once again and will now allow “transgender boys” — also known as girls — to enter your ranks. I guess you forgot that the girls already have their own branch of the Scouts. It’s called the Girl Scouts. You know, the one with the cookies. Will the Boy Scouts start selling cookies now, too? That would be one upside to all of this, at least. Your chief executive declared yesterday that it’s “not sufficient” to use a birth certificate as reference point to determine a person’s gender. I’m certain that he...

    Remember it’s a dual monarchy — it’s an illusion that two parties in both the House and Senate actually exist With just one day away from the Republicans self-imposed deadline to repeal botched Obamacare legislation, we can see that the GOP has no intention of achieving anything in favor of Trump, as both the Democrats and Republicans are wrapped up by the powers-that-be just as Intellihub has reported for years. With high-paid talking heads like Rush Limbaugh claiming that the two party system actually exists, it’s hard for narrow-minded members of the general public to figure out the true pyramid...

    PHILADELPHIA — Republican lawmakers aired sharp concerns about their party’s quick push to repeal the Affordable Care Act inside a closed-door meeting Thursday, according to a recording of the session obtained by The Washington Post. The recording reveals a GOP that appears to be filled with doubts about how to make good on a long-standing promise to get rid of Obamacare without explicit guidance from President Trump or his administration.

    Now that the 2016 election is long over and online hackers have had ample time to cover their e-tracks, a bold President Obama has decisively ordered a “full review” of Russian and other interference in the United States electoral process.We should probably say alleged Russian interference since no one has offered any proof, just reasonable suspicions of who might benefit from the release of documents that Democrats wanted to keep hidden. The Trump campaign criticized the move. A government spokeswoman in Moscow claims numerous requests for evidence to back up the U.S. charges have gone unanswered.On Oct. 7 the office...

    Steve Bannon, Mr. Populism? The high priest of Breitbart? The man who co-wrote a piece earlier this year slamming Romney as a sort of parasite on America’s working class and a walking, talking symbol of everything that was wrong with the Republican establishment? Perhaps nothing is more symptomatic of the GOP establishment’s death drive than their continued embrace of the presidential aspirations of a man who shrank the party in 2012…
