  • ‘Actual Malice’: Tulsi Gabbard Sends Cease and Desist Letters to Keith Olbermann, Mitt Romney Over ‘Treason’ Accusations

    (Snip) As for Romney, Gabbard blasted the nominally Republican Senator for his March 13 tweet in which he said Gabbard was spreading “Russian propaganda” and that her “treasonous lies may well cost lives.”“Your accusation that Representative Gabbard, a combat veteran and current military officer, has engaged in ‘treasonous’ activity is completely false, a fact of which you were well aware when you made your claim. And as explained below, your accusation that Representative Gabbard lied also has no basis in fact,” Dhillon wrote to Romney.“Your allegation that Representative Gabbard spoke ‘treasonous lies’ is clear-cut defamation,” Dhillon continued.

    “Extreme” House Democrats are holding the $1.2 trillion so-called bipartisan infrastructure bill “hostage,” Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) lamented in a statement Friday. Romney released his statement after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi failed to hold a vote Thursday on the bipartisan infrastructure bill, or the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. Leftist Democrats, led by House progressive caucus chair Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), whipped up her fellow progressives against the bipartisan bill because they want to move forward on the $3.5 trillion Build Back Better Act. In his statement, Romney claimed progressives continue to hold the bill hostage and that the bipartisan...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) is receiving a profile in courage award from the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation for his “historic vote” to impeach then-President Trump during his first impeachment trial last year, the foundation announced on Friday. “Senator Romney‘s commitment to our Constitution makes him a worthy successor to the senators who inspired my father to write 'Profiles in Courage,'” former Ambassador Caroline Kennedy said in a statement. “He reminds us that our Democracy depends on the courage, conscience and character of our elected officials.” Romney was the sole Republican senator to vote to impeach Trump last February on...

    Senator Mitt Romney said that he believes former President Donald Trump would win the Republican presidential nomination if he ran for office in 2024. "He has by far the largest voice and a big impact in my party," Romney said at a New York Times event on Tuesday. "I don't know if he'll run in 2024 or not, but if he does, I'm pretty sure he will win the nomination." Romney, the GOP presidential nominee in 2012, said that "a lot can happen between now and 2024," adding that he is not "great at predicting." However, he said he expects...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) launched another scathing attack on former President Donald Trump, accusing him of dividing the United States into a "dark and dangerous place" by continuously claiming the November election results were fraudulent. In a statement entered into a congressional record that was released on Thursday, the Utah lawmaker said Trump's denial of the election results was "one of the most reprehensible acts" possible and warned that the perpetuation of this "big lie" threatens the American people.
  • 'Lies of a feather flock together': Mitt Romney slams Trump and QAnon Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene for claiming the election was stolen after she tells him to 'grow a pair' and reveals the former president backs her

    Republican Sen. Mitt Romney and QAnon-supporting Congressman Marjorie Taylor Greene took swipes at each other on Twitter Saturday after Green said she'd had a 'great call' with former President Donald Trump. In a series of tweets, Greene wrote that Trump had given her his support despite the recent backlash against the controversial Georgia lawmaker, claiming that the American people are 'absolutely 100% loyal' to Trump and that she 'won't back down' as she battles against the 'enemy within'. 'I had a GREAT call with my all-time favorite POTUS, President Trump!' Greene wrote in the first of her Saturday tweets.

    Ditching the GOP is a bad idea born of justifiable frustration, and we need to stop being emotional and start being ruthless in our campaign to retake this country from these liberal establishment aspiring fascists. A third party is not the way. It is a bad idea, one that is technically impractical and which is strategically inept. It will lead to disaster. And the Democrats know it, which is why they love this third party palaver. The only thing that makes the tooting likes of Eric Swalwell coo in delight harder than some mediocre Chi Com honeypot is the thought...

    Who can explain the sadistic glee with which certain conservatives cheered Trump's departure from office? Five to six years ago, I was corresponding online, on a regular, frequent basis, with several strong conservatives. We all advocated for policies like smaller central government; lower taxes; First, Second and Tenth Amendment freedoms; restrictions on abortion; strict control of our borders, including merit-based immigration; and many other standard conservative positions. That was then. Along came the 2016 presidential campaign, and the finalists were Hillary Clinton and Donald J. Trump. As expected, most conservatives, as described above, were enthusiastically supportive of Trump. Unexpectedly, however,...

    Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) argued on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday” that the impeachment against former President Donald Trump would bring national unity. Anchor Chis Wallace asked, “Senator, do you support holding this impeachment trial, and what do you think the rules should be on the length of the trial and whether or not to call witnesses?” Romney said, “Well, we’re certainly going to have a trial. I wish that weren’t necessary, with the president’s conduct with regard to the call to the secretary of state in Georgia as well as the incitation towards the insurrection that led...

    Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, is grieving over, as CNN reporter Dana Bash put it, President Trump's "very firm grip on the Republican Party." Bash recently asked Romney whether he fears the party won't "be able to overcome Trumpism in the near future." Romney didn't object to Bash's negative characterization of Trumpism. He merely responded that he believes "Trump will continue to have a substantial influence on the party" and that those other than Trump who are rumored to be GOP presidential candidates in 2024 "are trying to appeal to kind of a populist approach."

    Senator. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, called President Trump’s refusal to concede the 2020 election “really sad” and “embarrassing” on Sunday. “I understand the president is casting about, trying to find some way to have a different result than the one that was delivered by the American people,” Romney told CNN’s “State of the Union.” “It’s really sad in a lot of respects and embarrassing because the president could, right now, be writing the last chapter of this administration with a victory lap with regards to the vaccine.” “He could be going out championing this extraordinary success, and instead he’s leaving Washington...

    Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) said Thursday on CNN’s “Situation Room” that President Donald Trump’s leadership through the coronavirus pandemic had been “a great human tragedy.” Anchor Wolf Blitzer said, “Yesterday on the coronavirus, it was the single deadliest day of the pandemic. More than 2,800 Americans were reported dead just yesterday alone, more than 100,000 people are hospitalized all across the country. The CDC director says the next three months will be, in his words, the most difficult time in the public health history of this nation. So here is the question, Senator, where is the president’s leadership? He’s obsessed...

    Only two Republicans out of that group of 53 — Mitt Romney of Utah and Ben Sasse of Nebraska — have stated the truth this week: that there is no evidence of any significant cheating or fraud, and that the president is, as Romney put it, attempting to “subvert the will of the people and overturn the election.”

    GOP Needs to Make Senate Romney-Proof Welcome to another chapter of the dystopian nightmare book: The Never-Ending Election. Today’s story comes from the great state of Georgia, where, as Tyler wrote yesterday, all eyes have turned: If Biden wins the presidency — giving Democrats a tie-breaker with Vice President Kamala Harris as the president of the Senate — Republicans just need to hold on to one seat in Georgia’s runoff elections in order to hold the majority. That, of course, is mathematically true. The thing with thin Republican Senate majorities, however, is that they’re always vulnerable to one turncoat Republican...

    President Trump's new Supreme Court nomination has some Republicans fearfully remembering past (and current) justices who have changed their spots. The liberals' worst nightmare has come to pass: Ruth Bader Ginsburg died during the Trump administration. Many supporters had urged her to retire during Obama's tenure so he could appoint her leftist successor. But with arrogant defiance, Ginsburg stayed on the bench, certain, no doubt, that President Hillary Clinton would name her successor. Reality's one tough customer. Now President Trump has nominated Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. We'll let all the others recount her unimpeachable credentials. Suffice to...
