    President Joe Biden should remember he was elected to 'stop the crazy' of Donald Trump rather than 'transform America' through his progressive agenda, Utah Republican Senator Mitt Romney suggested on Sunday. The moderate GOP legislator told NBC's Meet The Press there is 'no question that the nation is severely divided' and Biden's had a 'bad' first year in office. 'President Biden said he was going to try to unite the country,' Romney said, adding that 'his comments in Georgia did not suggest he's trying to pull us back together again.'

    Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has the full support of the Republican caucus to continue in his leadership role if they win the Senate majority in the 2022 midterm election. Anchor Chuck Todd said, “Senator Lindsey Graham said he couldn’t support Mitch McConnell if he doesn’t develop a working relationship with Donald Trump. Is that a litmus test that you think is fair?”
  • Alabama Senate Candidates Distance Themselves From Mitch McConnell On 2020 Election

    Republicans Katie Britt and Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama are distancing themselves from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell after McConnell suggested there were no problems with the 2020 election. Britt and Brooks are competing, along with “Black Hawn Down” veteran Mike Durant, for the U.S. Senate seat that retiring Sen. Richard Shelby will leave open later this year. After South Dakota Republican Sen. Mike Rounds on Sunday dismissed election complaints and claimed the 2020 election “was fair, as fair as we have seen,” McConnell backed Rounds’ comments on Tuesday, telling CNN, “I think Sen. Rounds told the truth about what...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) on Thursday said it “would be nuts” for the Republican National Committee (RNC) to block GOP candidates from attending debates run by the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD). The Utah Republican told Insider that barring Republicans from debates would prevent voters from hearing candidates “duke it out.”

    The investigation continues. That’s the official word from the University of Massachusetts about their very thorough investigation of some racist emails, a probe that was announced with such fanfare and righteous indignation earlier this fall but now appears to be sputtering out, with no suspects. No suspects? How can that possibly be?..., I saw that ZooMass had decided to get ahead of the curve with “An Update into the Investigation of Racist Emails.” “To date no perpetrator has been identified,” the statement read. “It is not uncommon for the results of a cyber inquiry to be inconclusive and it is...
  • The Hill: Trump struggles to clear GOP field in North Carolina Senate race

    Former President Trump and his allies are struggling to clear the Republican field in North Carolina’s wide-open U.S. Senate race and galvanize GOP voters around his preferred candidate, Rep. Ted Budd (R-N.C.). Despite winning the former president’s endorsement early on, Budd has so far failed to become the runaway favorite in the GOP primary and has regularly trailed his chief rival, former Gov. Pat McCrory, in polling. That set off an effort by Trump and Budd’s allies to nudge former Rep. Mark Walker (R-N.C.) out of the race by promising an endorsement if Walker runs instead for a Greensboro-area House...

    A majority of voters in Utah believe that former President Trump should not run again, according to a new poll released on Wednesday. A poll conducted by OH Predictive Insights indicated that 54 percent of registered voters in Utah believe that Trump should not run again in 2024 compared to 35 percent of those who believe he should. While the research firm indicated that the numbers differed along partisan lines, the percentage of Republican voters who said they would like Trump to run again was 53 percent, and OH Predictive Insights said was mostly driven by Republicans in the 18-year-old...
  • CNN on China Olympics: Hey, USA's a Human Rights Abuser, Too!

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    In a disgusting display of just how little the liberal media loves the United States, CNN has lumped America with China, Saudi Arabia, and Iran when it comes to human rights abuses. The foul comparisons came in a New Day segment on the news that, in a protest over Chinese human rights abuses, the US will not send any government officials to the Chinese Olympics, although American athletes will be permitted to participate. That led panelist and former ABC correspondent Mara Schiavocampo to use "human rights" organizations on the left to smear the United States into a kinship with some...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) praised the diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Beijing Olympics on Monday after the Biden administration announced that no government officials will be traveling to the Chinese capital for the Winter games. The Utah Republican said the administration's decision was "right." “The Administration is right to refuse diplomatic presence at the Beijing Olympics: America will not turn a blind eye to China’s predation, persecution, and genocide,” Romney wrote on Twitter.

    Writing for NBC in October, Ashley Pratte Oates, communications strategist and board member, Republican Women for Progress, accused Trump of “hijacking” the GOP with his continued influence. “While it’s disheartening to see these elected officials lambasted and pushed out of a party they’ve desperately—and bravely—tried to fix, it also should serve as a final wake-up call for leadership: The GOP is no longer the GOP of the Bushes, Ronald Reagan, Mitt Romney and John McCain. It is now the party of Trump,” Pratte Oates said.

    One of the sharpest critics of the American troop withdrawal from Afghanistan this past summer says the episode left the United States “showered with shame.” Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, who earlier said he can’t think of a bigger “mess up” in his lifetime than the way the Biden administration handled the evacuation of Americans and Afghan allies from Afghanistan, again criticized the removal in a Senate committee hearing Wednesday. The first-term senator said he wanted to talk about the decisions to go into Afghanistan and what lessons the U.S. might have learned or done differently. “But I can’t move on...

    Virginia Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin is setting himself apart from other Republican governors who have taken a hardline stance against vaccine mandates in their states. Instead, Youngkin, who is against vaccine mandates at the state level, said he will not block local governments from pushing their own Covid-19 health precautions, including vaccine mandates. “Localities are going to have to make decisions the way the law works and that is going to be up to individual decisions but, again, from the governor’s office, you won’t see mandates from me,” Youngkin said in a recent interview, according to local media.

    A total of 32 House and Senate Republicans helped push Biden’s $1.2 trillion infrastructure package over the finish line, most of whom have been showered with campaign cash from the leading lobbying group behind the bill — the US Chamber of Commerce. Lawmakers run for office, grabbing donations from interest groups, then, after their election, voting for legislation supported by those special interest groups despite their constituents’ opposition. The Chamber had been lobbying for Biden’s infrastructure bill, since the start of the year. By July, Open Secrets reported the Chamber had spent more than $12 million lobbying for the bill...

    Halloween came to the US Senate a few days early on Thursday as Sens. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) re-enacted the famous “Biscuits with the Boss” scene from the first season of “Ted Lasso.” Romney — clad in the recognizable chinos, sweater, whistle and mustache sported by Jason Sudeikis’ titular character in the Emmy-winning Apple TV+ series — tweeted a gif of himself serving a pink box of sweet treats to Sinema, assuming the role of AFC Richmond owner Rebecca Welton (played by Hannah Waddingham on the show). “Biscuits with the boss,” Romney captioned the gif before tweeting...

    WASHINGTON — Republican Sen. Mitt Romney on Sunday defended the filibuster and blasted Democrats calling for its elimination, dismissing their latest discussion to end it in order to pass voting rights legislation as "an unserious partisan effort aimed at messaging and energizing that party's base." "The need to marshal 60 votes to end a filibuster requires compromise and middle ground. It not only empowers the minority but also has helped to keep us centered, fostering the stability and predictability essential to investment in people, in capital and in the future," Romney, a moderate Republican who represents Utah, wrote in an...

    When Utah joined at least 25 other states in cutting off unemployed residents from federal jobless benefits early last summer, many Republicans, including Sen. Mitt Romney, thought it would drive people back to work. By Labor Day, millions of laid-off workers nationwide saw their benefits slashed when pandemic-era programs expired, but anecdotes of labor shortages persist. Plus, the number of workers quitting their job has reached near record-highs for the past five months. So, Insider caught up with Romney, whose state was one of the first to leave enhanced unemployment benefits behind, to see what he thinks is driving the...

    A group of anti-Trump Republicans on Thursday endorsed a slate of Democrats and centrist Republicans in the 2022 midterms to fight against the former president’s hold on the party. The Renew America Movement (RAM) announced it is backing a slew of lawmakers running for reelection. The group was founded by a group of moderates within the GOP after the Jan. 6 insurrection, which was fueled by then-President Trump’s lies about the election being stolen in November. “There is an urgent effort by Republicans and former Republicans to stem the tide of anti-democratic and lie-based Republican leaders in congress before it’s...

    Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) was reportedly chewed out by Senate Republicans and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) after the debt ceiling vote Thursday night. After the vote to approve the debt ceiling increase, Schumer was “confronted” by Sen. John Thune (R-SD) and Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) for a derogatory floor speech towards Republicans, Politico Playbook reported. Thune reportedly told Schumer his speech was “inappropriate and tone deaf.”

    Former President Donald Trump's ire for Republicans in Name Only (RINOs) extends beyond just U.S. House and Senate seats, as he chimes in with a "complete and total endorsement" of Texas state Senate candidate Kevin Sparks. Trump wrote in a statement Tuesday from his Save America PAC: "Kevin Sparks of the Great State of Texas is running against RINO Texas Sen. Kel Seliger, who is not helpful to our great MAGA Movement and, in fact, seems like the Texas version of Mitt Romney (and that is not good!). "Kevin is a businessman, loves the people of Midland and West Texas,...

    “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...
