    On Monday, Nov. 5, 2012, Henry Olsen posted on the National Review Online his final prediction for the election on Tuesday, in which he said that Mitt Romney would lose to President Barack Obama by one point and a little less than one hundred electoral votes. In the end, Romney lost by a little bit more than that. But the reason Olson gave was correct: Romney could not get enough votes from working-class whites in the Midwest and elsewhere, who were sympathetic to much in the GOP's message, but could not relate to his laissez-faire theme. Still in pain from...
  • Firm Behind Trump Dossier Hired by Planned Parenthood to Smear Videomakers

    06/27/2017 5:45:03 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 6 replies
    In the summer of 2015, Center for Medical Progress (CMP) began releasing its undercover videos exposing alleged profiteering on the part of Planned Parenthood and its partners in the biomedical fetal tissue procurement industry. The shocking videos forced America’s largest abortion provider into rapid defense mode, and smearing undercover journalist David Daleiden and his group became a top priority of Planned Parenthood. The group hired Fusion GPS to perform a forensic evaluation on CMP’s videos, the results of which were reported at Politico in August of 2015 with the headline, “Report for Planned Parenthood Finds Sting Videos Manipulated.”

    Former Republican presidential candidate and Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney says former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton "encouraged me to actively seek her old job. 'Don't let your differences with Trump scare you off,' she told me. 'I had differences with Obama, but I put those aside to take the job.'" "She was very sympathetic to the fact that I had spent tens of millions of dollars of my own money running against Obama for the presidency," Romney recalled her saying. "'You can get that back and more just like I did. When you're Secretary of State you have say-so over...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden said Friday that he knew a month before the 2016 election that Hillary Clinton would lose key battleground states. Biden made the comment during a closed-door appearance with Mitt Romney at the annual Romney-hosted E2 Summit, reports Politico. Based on his assessment of campaigning in those key battleground states, he said, he knew a month before the election that Clinton would lose them. Biden also stepped on Hillary just last month, saying he never thought she was a “great candidate” during a conference in Las Vegas. …

    PARK CITY, Utah — Democrat Hillary Clinton encouraged Mitt Romney to take a job as President Donald Trump's secretary of state, the former Republican presidential candidate said Friday. Romney, speaking to a high-powered gathering of GOP officials, top donors and business leaders at a luxury Utah resort, said that when Trump briefly considered him late last year for Clinton's former job, Romney called "virtually all the former secretaries of state" including Clinton. "In each case, each of them said, 'Please, please take that job if it's offered to you,'" Romney said, drawing laughs from the crowd. "We would very much...

    Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney revealed Friday that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton encouraged him to think about being President Trump's secretary of State. Romney, who is also the former governor of Massachusetts, made the comments at his annual political summit in Park City, Utah. While he was a vocal Trump critic during the presidential campaign, Romney was under consideration to be Trump’s secretary of State before Trump picked Rex Tillerson, who was then serving as CEO of Exxon Mobil Corp. Romney said he would have been willing to serve as the country’s top diplomat if Trump offered...

    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...

    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...

    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....

    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."

    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) ...

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

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.
