I Try Hard Not to Hate – Mitt Romney Makes it Hard…

Mitt Romney does his Mitt Romney thing again today as he tweets about President Trump commuting the sentence of Roger Stone:

Rather than allow myself to be drawn into unhealthy toxic anger; allow me to shift the focus for a moment to drive home the point that up to the moment that Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election, all national politics was controlled club activity.

It was in the aftermath of Mitt Romney taking a dive in 2012 when I first decided to really drill down on the club networks and figure out their strategies. Not esoteric analysis of what the political ideology is; but rather, a deep, very deep, focus into the network of how they actually function and what they physically do to keep hidden. Once you see the strings on the marionettes you can never go back to a time when you did not see them.

George Carlin was right, smart man, it’s a big club and we we’re not in it… until Trump.

The elevation of a semi-coherent and cognitively challenged vessel named Joe Biden should also drive home the point that both political wings of the UniParty bird, are ultimately a Potemkin village to disguise a network of powerful interests.

In January 2019 again CTH warned about Mitt Romney.  There’s a bunch of them to worry about but Mitt Romney and Nikki Haley are two republicans with the most toxic lust for power and influence.   Stay aware… beyond the Romney’s and Haley’s you’d be surprised how many embedded cells are simply laying dormant waiting to activate like political terror cells.

Senate Leader Mitch McConnell has one major career alliance that has been unbroken and unchanged for well over two decades.  That alliance is with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and specifically with CoC President Tom Donohue.  [SEE HERE and SEE HERE].

Mitch McConnell is stealthily working against the efforts of President Donald Trump.  The effort is to support his primary Wall Street financial benefactor, Donohue. However, Mitch McConnell cannot directly be connected to underhanded efforts against President Trump because it would lead to: (A) questions about a confrontation; and (B) public exposure. [ex. think about how McConnell is blocking President Trump from recess appointments]

Mitch McConnell has to be very careful about the visibility of how he undermines the President. Everything must have built in plausible deniability.

McConnell has a history of getting caught. However, fortunately for him people also have a tendency to forget [see McConnell’s scheme in the Mississippi 2014 Cochran race as an example].  Almost no-one remembers that U.S. Senator Jim DeMint, the founder of the Senate Conservative Fund, quit the Senate specifically because of the schemes and internal Machiavellian power moves of Mitch McConnell.

So when the carefully constructed, pre-planned, pre-scheduled, and pre-organized public op-ed by incoming Senator Mitt Romney was deployed in the Washington Post… for those who have watched McConnell work; we knew exactly who orchestrated it and why.

Senator Romney will be one (not the only) visible face of the opposition.  However, just like former Senator Corker and current Senator Sasse, the instructions (direct and indirect), and/or the approvals, will come from Leader McConnell’s office.

Through his power structure McConnell directly controls about 8 to 15 republican senators; we have called them “The Decepticons” for years. [Cornyn, Thune, Porter, Blunt, Portman, Burr, Barasso, Crapo, Murkowski, Gardner, Roberts, Sasse, Tillis, Graham and now Romney]

McConnell needed to test Romney’s commitment to the Decepticon club.  Romney passed the test.  Romney was rewarded with placement on the Senate Foreign Relations committee.  Those Senators who sit on this committee get the most financial benefit from foreign lobbyists.  To understand the financial process think: Qatar & McCain Institute etc.

That’s what is going on internally…. and no, I doubt President Trump knows the scale of it; or maybe he does, and he has to pretend like he doesn’t to navigate his agenda… but somehow I doubt it.

To remind ourselves how Minority and Majority Senator McConnell took down the threat of the Tea Party revisit these old articles CNN Part I and CNN Part II  both showcase how McConnell works.   Then do some research on how McConnell worked with Haley Barbour in Mississippi [SEE HERE].

Yes, Democrats are openly the opponents.  However, the republican wing of the uniparty is no less dangerous.

There.

    Trump might surprise us, Trump might not be political in the sense of DC politics, but he has the intelligence to recognize liars with a (D) or (R)after their names.

      And Donald Trump was courted by everyone in both parties for most of his life.

      Those dirty politicians knocked on Donald’s door looking to get large donations from their wealthy “friend,” and they most likely spewed all the dirt they had on their opponents — in an attempt to make themselves look better.

      I believe Donald Trump knew way more about the filth within the uniparty than we will ever know — before he announced his bid for the Presidency.

      During his announcement President Trump spoke of “The Swamp” — he knew it was deep and wide.

      Remember when the right branch of the uniparty made Donald Trump sign a form saying he would back whoever won the nomination? Remember when that same branch of the uniparty had no one else sign that same form? They knew he knew.

      A lot of people who think themselves high on the food chain laughed when Donald Trump announced his bid for the Presidency, and the lyin’ media, hollyweird, and the uniparty were among those who laughed the loudest. I believe all that laughing — laughing that is still going on — is a cover-up for all the dirt President Trump remembers about all of them.

            If you go back and take a look at the speech Romney made during the Republican primaries excoriating Trump despite Trump having raised money for his failed Presidential campaign, Trump was bound to find a way to get even and he did.

The one thing I like about the President is that he never forgets who the back stabbers are and he has Mitt’s number. When Mitt left the meeting with Trump in New Jersey, look how confused he looked trying to find his car. He knew then, he was a cuckled fool and was totally disoriented. God Bless President Trump.

  4. Dutchman says:

    This gets, or at least skims very close to arguments I have been putting forward for some time.
    Firstly, that the Republicon/Decepticons never believed, for one moment, that DJT was a Russian agent.

    Two, that there lack of a robust defence of DJT on this bogus charge, is NOT explainable/excusable by cowardice, timidity or ANY other attemped explanation.

    Three, the ORIGINATORS of the ‘insurance plan’ would not have proceeded until they had two assurances.
    First, some reasonable chance of success.
    Second, that if their scheme went “off the rails” and was exposed, that they would be ‘taken care of’; protected from negative consequences for their actions.

    Now, on the first; all their machinations would be pointless, without a Democrat majority in the House, to initiate impeachment proceedings.

    A Republican majority House simply COULD NOT be seen to initiate impeachment against a Republican POTUS.

    Hence, the originators of the muh Russua coup had to KNOW, absolutely,..to have concrete assurances that the House majority would switch to the Democrats.
    Without that, all their illegal activity is for naught.

    This, and this alone (I contend) explains Ryans behavior in which he gifted the gavel to Pelosi; like a wrestling ‘tag team’, he stalled and blocked Nunes investigation, and by announcing he wouldn’t run for reelection, while remaining a lame duck Speaker, encouraging 40 others to also not run for reelection, refusing to authorise subpoenas or lawsuits on behalf of Congress to compel documents and witnesses, he was doing everything in his power to both stall the investigation, AND insure a change of majority.

    Which leads to the second assurance; protection from consequences for their actions, of which there were several.

    Firstly, of coarse there is indictments and prosecutions. This could be stymied by having key people in positions in DOJ to block any such behaviors.

    And, of coarse the Mueller investigation, which gave the “muh, ongoing investigation” excuse for blocking any criminal investigations.

    But, seperately there was the threat of CONGRESSIONAL investigations, as well.
    Any of us who lived thru Watergate know that is totally possible for Congress to hold investigative hearings, even while criminal investigations are ongoing; we SAW it play out, in real time.

    And, from a Political optics standpoint, why WOULDN’T Republican leadership, in BOTH houses, capitalise on the biggest scandal in our history, that involves an outgoing Democrat administration spying on and undermining an incoming Republican administration?

    That is political GOLD; The Republican House and Senate could both have picked up seats, had this been exploted for political gain.

    So, the planners, IN THE BEGINNING, had to be absolutely assured that this WOULD NOT HAPPEN, ….BEFORE they would proceed.

    The ONLY way they could have such air-tight assurance, is if Congressional Republican leadership was COMPLICIT in the coup attempt, from the outset.

    Because you were not simply a passive bystander, to my crime, but were a willing participant, you will work to protect me.

    The Republican party hierarchy tried everything they could to prevent DJT from getting the nomination, and worked openly and covertly to prevent his victory;
    We all SAW it.

    At a certain point they knew they were going to fail to prevent his nomination, and recognise he had a realistic chance of winning.

    Its my belief it is THEY who originated the idea for the coup attempt, and in tag team fashion, passed it over to the Obama admin to carry out, with the implicit understanding the Congressional Republicons would do their part.
    To wit; we will insure the House majority switches. We will block any Congressional investigations.
    And, assuming you can give us a politically acceptable excuse, Republican Senators will SAY they are willing to vote to convict, in order to force PDJT to resign.”

    “What would you NEED, as a politically acceptable excuse?”
    “Get him to FIRE the Special Council; then we can, shades of Watergate, self-righteously say “No one is above the law, not even the POTUS”, and he can be impeached for Obstruction of Justice, and Abuse of Power.”

    And of coarse, there is the confirmatiin of Barr. If you agree with my ‘take’ there is simply NO WAY that McConnell assents to confirming an A.G., without KNOWING, absotutely and positively, that he will bottle up any criminal investigation of the coup.

    In fact, the perfect way to do so is to appoint a prosecutor to investigate, thereby continueing the “muh, ongoing investigation” excuse.

    To me, the only possible explanation, to explai all the behavior if Congressional Republican leadership, is THEY initiated the muh russia coup attempt, and have been actively participating in the cover up, ever since.

    Exposing THIS complicity, along with the myth that “Russians hacked the servers” are the two things they have adamantly firewalled.

    All else about the coup, they can gradually let out, over time, to a public only intermittently paying attention.

    The “Investigate to Exhonerate” strategy employed for Fast/Furious, IRS/Tea Party and Benghazi, in which Congressional Republicans were ALSO complicit, and so revealed everything BUT their active participation, while insuring there was no accountability.

    Its not simply a matter of “Occams razor”
    (All things being equal, the simplest explanation is usually right.)
    This is the ONLY explanation that can explain the Congressional Republican leaderships conduct, not only for the last 4 years, but during the 8 years of Obama.

    They are NOT “Stupid”,..”Timid” and even greed doesn’t explain it.
    The ONLY explantion that fits to explain there behavior is COMPLICIT.

    Would love for someone to use LOGIC to prove me wrong, but no one has.

    Hence, wishing and hoping Durham will give us perp walks, is hope porn.
    Wishing/hoping Barr will “step up”?
    Ditto.
    Therefore, the biggest impediment to PDJT, MAGA and US is Mitch and the Decepticons, and so long as they retain iron fisted control, the MAGA movement is stymied in our attempts to drain the swamp, and save our Republic.

        Then you know that my main argument, for some time boils down to McConnell and Co. wouldn’t confirm a hoysecleaner as AG, only a cleaner.
        Not without a Grennell type, to force their hand.
        Sidney, in a recent interview, gave me material to advance a second, supportive argument.

        SHE didn’t present it that way, but never the less….
        In her Epoch times interview, right at the end, she was asked what she would advise Barr to do. She said;
        #1 eliminate the 302 system, and do like every other Federal law enforcement, and video record all interviews with subjects.
        #2 appoint a panel of current/former prosecutors to examine all current cases (first) and then previous cases, looking for signs of withholding brady material, and if found, FIRE the prosecutors, in order to get rid of the bad apples, and to address the “culture” at DOJ.

        Notice these are all things within A.G. Barrs authority, and they do not require any dotting of I’s and crossing of t’s.

        IF Barrs intention in coming back was to restore the reputation of FBI/DOJ, and correct the CULTURE that thinks railroading and lawfare are apropriate, he could/should/would have done this “on day one”, 1 1/2 YEARS ago.

        My thinking; After a 2020 victory, PDJT thanks Barr and Wray for their service, and nominates Sidney as A.G.

        Given her career, and crusade she is uniquely qualified to clean house.
        In the mean time, HE, PDJT as he is legally and Constitutionally authorised and required to do, takes over administering the DOJ.

        In effect, he plays the Grennell role, to Sidneys Ratcliffe, …let McConnell drag his feet on the confirmation, while PDJT is the bull in a China shop.

        So, thats my “What if PDJT wins” best guess.

      Desertrek,
      In 2008, I held my nose at mcstain, and voted for Sarah.
      In 2012, I and 8 million registered Republicans simply couldn’t do it, any more. For the first time since being old enough to vote, I didn’t vote in a POTUS election.

      And, many argued “but your ‘giving’ the election to the Dems! (Obama).”

      Knowing what we know now, we can anticipate what a Romney Presidency would have looked like,…
      He would have maintained or expanded Obamacare (after all, he was its “grandfather”) and along with McStain and Graham, he would have “reached across the aisle” to pass “historic, bi-partisan comprehensive immigration package” that would purport to address; mandatory e-verify, visa lottery, chain and birthright citisenship, etc. BUT, “in exchange” ,…”our side” would be told we had to “give in order to get” (due to the odious ‘fillibuster rule’) amnesty for the 30+ million illegals already here.

      And, after much fanfare, and talk of how this was “politically astute cause now former illegals will vote Republican”, we would find that the enforcement provisions would all be overturned in the courts, or undermined by lack of implementation, or loopholes.

      So, while I say “give yourself a break, you are far from alone”, I also got to say, my non-vote for Romney in 2012, is the vote I am proudest for not making.

      And now, the same argument is being made, that I should vote for a Mitt, if I lived in Utah and he was up, or Mitch if in Kentucky (and he IS up) ditto Lindsey in S.Carolina, or (as I am in Az) a McSally RINO.

      “Oh, you MUST, cause otherwise you are electing a Democrat! Work hard, to primary them in the totally rigged system, and when your candidate inevitably loses, rally around the party, and vote for the Rino.”

      I simply can not. Others will have to weigh their solemn, sacred vote as they will.
      For my part, I simply can NOT eat the dogsh*t sandwhich, just cause its slightly less unappealing, than the catsh*t sandwich, which is the only other thing on the menu.

                  For the same reason the Senate Republicans didn’t vote to convict, even though they wanted to.

                  Its the key thing, that makes an impeachment a POLITICAL rather than a criminal process.

                  WE are the jury, NOT the 100 Senators. Being a TRIAL, in the Senate they HAVE to allow the Presidents lawyers to present a defence, to the American people.

                  And if the jury, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, are persuaded, then he’s GONE, and if not, not.

                  Bill Clinton had his Law licence revoked, FOR LIFE as a result of committing perjury. But, the Senate did NOT vote to convict, because the American people were NOT convinced that his behavior, with Blue dresses and cigars, etc. as aggregious and distastful as it was, rose to the level to justify removal from office.

                  And the Ukraine hoax, as presented by the ‘house prosecutors’ did not convince the jury, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, that PDJT had done anything wrong.

                  In the same way, IF PDJT had fired Mueller, etc. they COULD have sold the American people that it was “Nixons Sat..nite massacre” and Obstruction of Justice, and then forced his resignation, which is preferable because they DON’T have to stand in the glare of history AND the American people, as having voted to convict.

                  And, it ONLY works, if WE are convinced. THATS why Impeachment is a POLITICAL rather than a Criminal procedure.

    Potemkin Village:

    The term comes from stories of a fake portable village built solely to impress Empress Catherine II by her former lover Grigory Potemkin, during her journey to Crimea in 1787. While modern historians claim accounts of this portable village are exaggerated, the original story was that Potemkin erected phony portable settlements along the banks of the Dnieper River in order to impress the Russian Empress; the structures would be disassembled after she passed, and re-assembled farther along her route to be viewed again as if another example. The term is a translation of the Russian.

    • Tornarosa says:

      Thanks CJ, a good explanation for how the term is used today. Since the term is so frequently used and trivializes the deep history there, let me try to add some brief Treehouse context.

      Prior to its conquest by Potemkin and Catherine, Russia had no access to the Black Sea.
      Potemkin finally persuaded Catherine to seize the Crimea, and they did in 1883.

      The Crimea was the “Bread Basket” of the Ottoman Empire, largely farmed by captured slaves, who could not be ransomed or sold in Constantinople, from Ottoman conquests. (One famous escaped slave from the farms there was Captain John Smith, in 1603). The Crimea gave access to the Sea of Azov and Black Sea for security and projection of power to the South.

      Potemkin and Catherine poured huge amounts of resources into transforming the look and feel of an Ottoman Sanjak to make it resemble the rest of Russia. Catherine built Orthodox churches, villas, planted olive, citrus, and grape orchards. She imported tens of thousands of Mennonite, Lutheran, Bulgarian and Russian farmers into the region and deported two-thirds of the Crimean Tartars to Ottoman territories.

      Certainly, Prince Potemkin decorated and gussied up the villages with paint and flowers and gates for the triumphant cruise down the Dnieper with Catherine and foreign diplomats, Potemkin didn’t have to “fool” Catherine, It should be noted that it was Potemkin’s rivals and enemies that coined the term Potemkin Villages.

      https://www.wbur.org/cognoscenti/2014/03/19/crimea-and-russia-through-history-kelly-oneill

      The successful farmers grew prosperous and collectively were called Kulaks. In 1932 this area was part of Stalin’s Holodomor, the artificial and purposeful starvation of millions of Russian farmers that refused to collectivize and give up their farms in Ukraine and Crimea..

      For a real “Potemkin Villages,” I like to use the 1944 visit to Stalinist Russia by pro-communist VP Henry Wallace who visited Kolyma in the Gulag Archipelago and thought it a wonderful place with guards dressed as prisoners, playing concerts and engaging in football matches.

    This is so spot on and why I think the RINO’s in conjunction with the leftist have formulated their 2021 Insurance Plan already.

    If PT wins in Nov the attack games continue with another manufactured impeachment quickly in 2021 before his economic magic gets back up to full steam.

    The DS will stuff the ballot boxes in Nov to at least ensure they gain back 3 Dem Senate seats bringing the new split to 50-50

    Then needing only 17 RINO’s beyond the Dems and just based on the names Sundance lists, they have the votes to remove PT from office.

    The spin will be from the R’s we had to do it for the good of the country to heal.

    And folks like McConnell and Lindsey and probably others on Sundance’s list will have just won their 6 year re-election so they are all set.

    They will gladly accept “I’m just happy to be here” Pence as their new President. The simple fact, he has capitulated to the DS by giving them full control of the CV direction, masks and lockdowns is all you need to know.

    The left will own and control Pence much like they snookered Sessions.

    So what can PT do?

    Dump Pence for 2020 before the convention and add SD Governor, Kristi Noem as his 2020 VP

    She is made out of the Trump mold and screams MAGA policies.

    With her on the ticket it might just be a big enough curve ball to make the RINO’s think twice about impeaching PT because it will be a huge block to the career path of Nikki Haley as President in 2024.

    I truly see this new insurance policy as their next ploy if PT wins so somehow we have to get PT to see this setup is coming and clearly Romney’s tweet today is a big tip off IMO.

    To dump Pence before the convention and bring in Kristi is pure brilliance IMO and pure Trump Genius.

    I hope when Sundance speaks with PT soon (wishful thinking) he shares this idea with him.

    It could be the greatest curve ball ever thrown!

    Also if anyone wants to bounce the new insurance policy idea and changing out Pence for Noem with Don Jr via twitter I’m ok with that.

    The DS plans their moves far in advance as we have seen with CV so do not underestimate these people.

      He follows POTUS’s direction and is doing more than any other VP that I recall. Some may not like or appreciate his mannerisms, etc. but everyone of us is different and along with that comes the mannerisms.

      Noem has a future in the Trumplican Party, without a doubt, but replacing Pence with her is something totally foreign to a Trump philosophy and that is “loyalty” and “personal relationships”.
      For now, Pence is loyal to the POTUS (IMHO) and they have a good personal relationship.

Donald Trump seemed to understand this. Donald Trump was aggressive enough, strategic enough, and wealthy enough, to put himself in a position to challenge this, and turn the tide of this country before it went to ruin. There seems to be two strategic blunders in his thinking. First, by displaying extraordinary deference and civility to the institutions he was serving, that he would bring down the temperature of the confrontation, and that others would be willing to work with him for the betterment of the United States. And that he could show no interest in litigating the misdeeds and crimes against the country from the past few years and by concentrating on the future, get some of his opponents to mend their ways and join the cause. These are looking to be catastrophic mistakes. His opponents have been going scorched-earth on him since day one, and his almost inexplicable inability to hire a competent and non-corrupt Attorney General has hamstrung his Presidency, and emboldened our enemies to the point where they aren’t even bothering to hide their contempt for civility or the rule of law.

    …I wrote most of this on Romney, April or so of last year. What prompted it was Romney’s use of two campaign slogans with racist overtones. I was cautioned, at the time, to not rock the boat with this, as a lot of Mormons are Conservative. The converse is perhaps not applicable, at least for me. I will not be campaigning for or supporting Mitt Romney.

    I am a bit of a student of advertising slogans. Romney was clothing his campaign with past slogans of Reagan and Margaret Thatcher. Romney was in the habit of borrowing campaign slogans from Conservatives, so he could appear as a Conservative to the Colin Powell branch of the Republican Party. There was even a 3rd campaign slogan borrowed from Reagan, but it escaped me, and perhaps someone here can remind me. Romney would be better to come up with his own slogans, but this is perhaps another problem, as there is no there there. It does not work to plagiarize from others, and the reason it does not work, is rooted in Romney’s conflicted mind.

    I went to Rice U. in Houston in 1965, the year following the passing of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Rice was originally founded as a segregated school with free tuition for all that could get thru the academic hoops. But when Rice wanted to expand its space program, and apply for money from the feds, they had to integrate. My freshman class was the first integrated class, and I took my math 100 in German from the first Black professor, who did not speak English, as there was no college level Black math professor to be found who could. Rice U. and most of the rest of the country went along with integration and embraced the civil rights movement. Two schools did not.

    I might title this, “Why I don’t Like Mitt Romney.” Romney’s recent remark, inartfully plagiarizing Margaret Thatcher, “Obama Isn’t Working”,

    http://tinyurl.com/3ompr2q

    which some leftists have jumped on as inappropriate because of the racial overtones suggesting the old school adage that Black men are lazy, points to a familiar theme re Mitt Romney, BYU English grad class of ’71. This remark portends racist code overtones similar to Romney’s April “hanging Obama with the misery index” remark:

    http://tinyurl.com/5vy7aoj

    Not only is the remark to be condemned as a racist metaphor, it shows the same lack of originality. The two remarks together, reveal in part, Mitt Romney’s mind, and the world in which he grew up. During the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, when Mitt Romney attended Brigham Young University, it was a segregated school, only becoming integrated in 1978, 14 years after the passing of the 1964 civil rights act. Sporting events between segregated BYU and other integrated colleges and universities during this time, frequently led to boycotts and riots and demonstrations, because of BYU’s racist policies re segregation. BYU was one of 2 schools in the country to fight integration during this time, and well after, Bob Jones U. being the other, from 1964 until 1983.

    Segregation at BYU, during and well after Mitt’s time there, during the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, was not just a casual rule, but rather part of an all embracing honor code and code of conduct, which required all LDS students to adhere and conform to the doctrines of the LDS church. LDS doctrine included Brigham Young’s founding theology that Blacks were made black because of their sins against God, and that slavery was a “…divine institution”. Blacks were prohibited from entering the LDS temple until June 1978, and then only if they were considered “worthy”.

    This was Mitt Romney’s world during his school days, and during the formative years of his “education”. Romney was President of his class, and President of the Honor Council, dealing w enforcing the Mormon doctrines. So yes, he is going to repudiate it, in part, and claim he and his father marched with MLK, which later would become he was in the same town that MLK was at one point. But in Mitt’s mind, he is conflicted, because on one hand he is commanded to conform to these abhorent racist doctrines and codes of conduct, and on another he surely must realize, that at least others, if not himself, consider them repulsive. So, yes, this would lead to a flip flopping personality prone to avoid verbalizing the profound issues of the heart. Wholly understandable.

    Now, Romney and his father were leaders in the LDS Church, and as such, bear responsibility, at least in part, for the continuing segregationist policies of BYU, which flew in the face of the mood of the country, for integration, and equality of opportunity and housing and education, and drinking from the same water fountains, regardless of the color of one’s skin.

    And although I could care less if Mitt Romney, or anyone else, wants to practice their LDS religion, for me, the racism part is disturbing, as an American and as a Republican. It does not belong in the Republican Party. It much better suits the Democrat Party. The Republican Party, forget for the moment, whether the Colin Powell wing or the Clarence Thomas wing, was founded in 1854 on the principle that freedom is for all men regardless of their race or skin color. Mitt Romney’s burden re this seminal Republican principle is too heavy to contest leadership of the Republican Party. Indeed, the Republican Party is perceived by most Blacks as being the party of racism, rather than the party that was formed to fight it. That ground is sacred to the Republican Party and needs to be reclaimed, and Mitt Romney is not the man to do it.

    What are Mitts views on marriage between 16 year old girls and 55 year leaders of any church. Has he ever attended any such wedding? Has he ever thought they may be arranged? Has he ever questioned the the parents of the bride about payments from their new son in law?
    Why is Mitt silent on these topics?

  34. This post is undeniably true, and it certainly explains why the Swamp is so difficult for true, well-meaning conservatives to navigate, and hence making the Swamp impenetrable.

    However, whatever conclusion one draws from these unfortunate circumstances, they must be viewed as completely irrelevant to our only electoral choice at hand: to deny crypto- communists access to power by voting straight R up and down the ballot!

    The communists themselves will hope to interest you in other ballot choices so you won’t come to that crushing conclusion, but WE ALL MUST LOOK AWAY FROM THIRD PARTY CHOICES.

    If a bunch of unarmed punks managed to paralyze civic life and commerce throughout the US, what will become of the US when participation in BLM becomes mandatory for all citizens?

    Lastly, and for the umpteenth time, third party candidates will be wearing impressive military garb, the women will be highly attractive, the men will have square jaws and talk conservative values but will be lib to the core with Soros money backing them.

    Between now and 2024 we need to scout around for a super strong Primary and Senate Candidate to knock Romney out of his position. I am pretty sure he wants to run for President again but he will not give up his Senate seat while doing so. Therefore, we must find a really strong candidate for President that puts America First and has been mentored by President Trump. Another outsider like Rick Grennell or another business titan that has already shown their Pro American Bonafides.

    The time to start is now. We have clearly seen who are not true America First people. No time to waste. If anything this last four years have shown us it is that time is running out. It is imperative that our internet sleuths, along with Sundance, do a deep dive on all potential candidates. I am really not that skilled with it.

    The battle lines have been drawn between Soros, Bill Ayers and China vs President Trump and real Americans. Communism v Freedom and the US Constitution.

    They started an insurrection in 2009 and we were totally blind to it. No Longer. We can only hope it is not too late.

    Stay Strong, Never Give Up and Never Give In. God Bless The USA and it’s awesome President Trump.

    Well…..it took me long enough to get it thru this thick skull but after reading this post and the comments below, it hit me like a hammer! The “republicans” are in on it , have been and will continue to be until something quite drastic happens. Thanks to Sundance and my fellow Treepers for setting this old truck driver straight! Now the question I have is……besides PRESIDENT Donald J Trump, how can I vote for someone like Portman? Should I hold my nose and check the box? I hate to think that that Piece of Trash would think I’m ignorant enough to vote for him. Or should I leave it blank and prepare for the worst. Which ever way it goes I fully intend to defend the Constitution and the only Man I trust in Washington DC ( I Know ….Jim Jordan and about 4 others included!). One last thing…I definitely thank the Big Guy Above for sending this Country Donald J Trump, and for guiding me to this site! GOD Bless our Country! REDHORSE!!

    Maybe someday people will become interested in the Mormon Church and their determination to take over the country, just like radical Islam. Maybe someday people will read about the history of the LDS Church and the founders of the church who firmly believed in and practiced polygamy and rape of minor children. Maybe someday people will find out the vast wealth and land holdings of the Mormon Church. Maybe someday people will find out what its like to live in a community where Mormons control the businesses and local governments –gentiles do not get hired. Why does everyone turn a blind eye to this powerful entity? Romney is just following orders.

I did not see one Black person and only a handful of Hispanics working in the hotel and restaurants. No crime. Definitely no poverty. Public transportation around the town and ski resorts was free. Restaurants and bars open most of the night with everyone having a great time. So, tell me Mitch why can’t the rest of Americans enjoy the same living conditions???

    It’s going to take scandals of epic proportions, either financial or sexual, to dislodge the likes of Romney and McConnell from their office. We need pictures and recordings, and we need them now.

    These bastards must be put into a position where they are forced to resign. The “incumbent lock” in Congress is astronomical. In the Senate the reelection rate rarely dips below 90 percent. In the House the re-election rate among all 435 members of the House has been as high as 98 percent and similarly rarely dips below 90 percent.
