  • 'Mitt Romney Republican' is now a potent GOP primary attack

    06/25/2022 3:40:02 PM PDT · by cotton1706 · 50 replies ^ | 6/25/22 | Sam Metz
    Mitt Romney isn't up for reelection this year. But Trump-aligned Republicans hostile toward the Utah senator have made his name a recurring theme in this year's primaries, using him as a foil and derisively branding their rivals “Mitt Romney Republicans." Republicans have used the concept to frame their primary opponents as enemies of the Trump-era GOP in southeast Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania. The anti-tax group Club For Growth, among the most active super PACs in this year's primaries, used “Mitt Romney Republican” as the central premise of an attack ad in North Carolina's Senate primary. But nowhere are references to...

    Former President Donald Trump’s embrace of American exceptionalism has brought forth upon this nation a patriotic rebirth of our founding principles that he will only diminish should he persist in his evident determination to run for reelection in 2024. Today we are engaged in a great and perhaps ultimate spiritual battle challenging the future of the Judeo-Christian principles so dear to our Founders. As John Adams warned, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” Perhaps Mr. Trump’s most enduring contribution will be that he radicalized a...

    As the Jan. 6 select committee prepares to unveil some of the findings of its investigation into the riot at the Capitol by those who sought to overturn the results of the 2020 election, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Thursday offered his spin on who was to blame for the attack: everyone. During a news conference on Capitol Hill, McCarthy was asked whether he still agreed with his own public and private comments following the Jan. 6 riot that former President Donald Trump bore some of the responsibility for the violence. “Look, I’ve answered that many times,” McCarthy responded....

    The first testimony shown at the first public hearings of the January 6 Committee on Thursday evening was a recorded deposition of former Attorney General William Barr, who had voluntarily agreed to testify in closed-door proceedings. It was not clear whether Barr understood that in providing a deposition, he was agreeing to an on-camera appearance in public, without context, without the protections of legal counsel, and without cross-examination by the opposition.

    President Trump responded to Kellyanne Conway’s statements from her upcoming book that she allegedly told the president and her boss that he lost the 2020 election. Trump posted his response on Truth Social on Tuesday. President Trump: “Kellyanne Conway never told me that she thought we lost the election. If she had I wouldn’t have dealt with her any longer – she would have been wrong – could go back to her crazy husband. Writing books can make people say some very strange things. I wonder why? Got 12 million more votes than we did the first time, the most...

    Mike Pence says he is open to running against President Trump in 2024. The NY TImes reported: After four years of service bordering on subservience, the increasingly emboldened Mr. Pence is seeking to reintroduce himself to Republican voters ahead of a potential presidential bid by setting himself apart from what many in the G.O.P. see as the worst impulses of Mr. Trump. He’s among a small group in his party considering a run in 2024 no matter what Mr. Trump decides. Mr. Pence first used high-profile speeches to criticize the former president’s push to overturn the 2020 election results, stating...

    William Barr, who served as U.S. attorney general under then-President Donald Trump, is in talks to cooperate with the Congressional committee investigating the January 6th riot at the U.S. Capitol, according to a Thursday report. Axios reports: Barr is likely to cooperate with the committee, according to a source familiar with his thinking. Tim Mulvey, a spokesman for the Jan. 6 committee, declined to comment. […] No firm decision has been made by the committee on whether to invite Barr to appear in the public hearings that begin in June. Barr has said Trump became angry at him for dismissing...

    Former Vice President Mike Pence blasted Vice President Harris in a speech Thursday over her support of abortion rights as the Supreme Court appears poised to overturn Roe v. Wade. On Tuesday at an EMILY’s List conference, Harris chastised Republicans who aim to restrict abortions. “Those Republicans leaders who are trying to weaponize the use of the law against women — how dare they?” she asked. “How dare they tell a woman what she can do and cannot do with her own body? How dare they? How dare they try to stop her from determining her own future? How dare...

    Former White House coronavirus response task force coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx said on MSNBC’s “Katy Tur Reports” that during the early days of the COVID pandemic, with the approval of then-Vice President Mike Pence, she went to local media all across America to say the exact opposite of the information citizens were getting from then-President Donald Trump. Tur said, “What about when it became clear to you that he was dangerous, that he was saying to people inject bleach into your arms to clear out the virus. He said he was joking, but that’s not the way the American public...

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Virginia — Former Vice President Mike Pence spoke about the importance of an active conservative movement in America’s education systems, telling Breitbart News, “One of the most important battlefields for the future is on the campuses of our colleges and universities.” Breitbart News sat down with Pence in Pavilion IV on the Lawn at the University of Virginia, part of Thomas Jefferson’s historic Academical Village, which he designed to be the physical representation of the “intellectual frontiers that lay open to discovery” — an apt location given the topics he was set to address later in the evening to...

    Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, harshly condemned former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, for comments she made in recent days about U.S. biological laboratories in Ukraine, Business Insider reported Monday. "Tulsi Gabbard is parroting false Russian propaganda," Romney tweeted. "Her treasonous lies may well cost lives." Russia has spread a baseless claim the U.S. is funding the development of bioweapons in labs in Ukraine, a move which the U.S. warned could indicate that Moscow is planning to use chemical weapons against Ukraine, according to Business Insider. In response to Romney's comments, Gabbard on Monday wrote on Twitter: "You have called me a...

    President Biden phoned the parents of Trevor Reed, a former U.S. Marine detained in Russia, on Tuesday to “reiterate his commitment to doing everything he can to bring their son home,” according to a White House official. The phone call came after the family had unsuccessfully sought a meeting with Biden during his trip to Fort Worth, Texas, on Tuesday for an event focused on veterans health care. “After his event in Fort Worth, the President called Joey and Paula Reed to reiterate his commitment to doing everything he can to bring their son home, to staying in close touch...

    House Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy made history on Thursday by endorsing Rep. Liz Cheney’s primary opponent to represent Wyoming, attorney Harriet Hageman. “After spending time with Harriet, it is readily apparent she will always listen and prioritize the needs of her local communities and is focused on tackling our nation’s biggest problems,” McCarthy told The Federalist. “I look forward to serving with Harriet for years to come.” The endorsement from the party’s top lawmaker in the lower chamber comes after a long string of Cheney attacks on her colleagues and even her own constituents, resulting in numerous censures and...

    Former Vice President Mike Pence’s visit to New Hampshire last week and stops in other high-profile early primary states are fueling speculation about a potential 2024 presidential run — and questions about whether he can win over the GOP voters he angered on Jan. 6. In New Hampshire, Pence made a number of campaign-style stops, attending a fundraiser for Republican state Senate candidates, meeting with local political activists and stopping by a local bakery.

    U.S. Representative Adam Kinzinger criticized Democrats for encouraging Republicans to tell the truth but then targeting him in redistricting. Kinzinger, a Republican from Illinois, explained his decision to not seek re-election while appearing on ABC News' This Week Sunday morning. He said one reason he opted to retire is that he has not seen other Republicans "move away from lies," amid baseless claims of fraud in the 2020 election by former President Donald Trump and his GOP allies..... He also called out Democrats for drawing him into a district with another GOP incumbent. His district is currently largely based in...

    Rep. Adam Kinzinger's (R-Ill.) announcement that he will retire after his current term marks the latest victory in former President Trump’s quest to purge his internal critics from the GOP and mold the Republican Party even more in his own image. Kinzinger's Friday announcement, along with stiff primary challenges facing other Republicans who voted for Trump’s impeachment earlier this year, underscores the headwinds critics of the former president face in their reelection bids — and just how Trumpian the House GOP conference is expected to be starting in 2023 in the likely absence of at least some of his detractors....
