Utah Senator Orrin Hatch
announces plan to retire

KTVX-TV (Salt Lake City, UT), by Kierra Dotson

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/2/2018 2:45:20 PM

After serving seven terms as Utah´s senator, Orrin Hatch announced Tuesday he plans to retire. "When the President visited Utah last month, he said I was a fighter. I´ve always been a fighter. I was an amateur boxer in my youth, and I brought that fighting spirit with me to Washington. But every good fighter knows when to hang up the gloves. And for me, that time is soon approaching," he said in a video. The senator said when his term ends he will not seek re-election. "I´m deeply grateful for the privilege you´ve given me to serve as your

I have no doubt that Senator Hatch is a fine man. BUT. For the life of me, I can´t think of one thing he has accomplished.

Good, seven terms is too long regardless of party. Too much cronyism and removal from the constituents that they were elected to serve (i.e John McCain).

Bummer news of the day because it means Romney gets elected to the Senate. Utah is the only place Romney can get elected, and Mormons do not like Trump. The minute Romney gets to the Senate, he will be reaching across the aisle...... AAAAAARRRRGGGGHHHH!

Utah, if you get on the ball and work hard you can avoid a Uniparty win here with the former presidential candidate that many think laid down for the 44th president to carry on in his destruction.

GET ON IT! Get the best candidate that can win against the former presidential candidate. The Uniparty is counting on this seat. Do Not Let Them Have It! #MAGA depends on it!

Personally, I think any senator/congressperson should be phased out of Congress before they reach 75/80 years of age. Not sure which. But, I believe they should be retired (made to retire). Most companies (unless the person owns them) forces retirement on us civilians at least by 70. Why should these "power mongers" be allowed to sit there and dictate to us until they´re senile. I would think they´d rather retire and spend time with their families in their "golden" years. Instead, they stick around to inflict laws they don´t want to obey themselves.

No beef with Orrin Hatch, but we´ve got old lady Feinstein here in CA who plans to run again this year--she´s 84 and rich; she doesn´t need anymore added to her pension. But she just keeps on "running" (I´m sure she couldn´t run 1/4 mile physically). Term limits, age limit, whatever.

Mitt has paid his dues as far as the Bush moderates, GOPe leadership is concerned and he has spent millions setting himself up to buy some political power. So, its true, he IS a shoo-in. Mia Love has proven to be a non-boat rocker so she will not cross the establishment by challenging Mitt. No way.

#7, you are right about the Mormons not liking Trump. They are much more socially liberal than most people know. They are just quiet about it. PDJT is way too conservative for them.

It´s wrong to stereotype ANY group. I´m a participating "Mormon," and I certainly don´t consider myself to be "socially liberal."

1) I´m anti-abortion in almost ANY circumstances (possible exception - life of mother or child).
2) I´m fully supportive of "build the wall."
3) I´m anti-amnesty. (We can talk about the law-abiding and contributing "dreamers" - AFTER the wall has been funded and is underway.)
4) Does this make me "socially liberal"? I´m fully in favor of decriminalizing demon reefer. It´s none of the government´s damn business! (I consider that socially conservative.)

Some Mormons are more liberal than me... many are more conservative, except for the reefer thing.

Chaffetz didn´t retire from the House for no reason. No Romney´s for me. Mr. Romney has a very foul mouth for those in his party that he disagrees with, so Mr. Romney can look elsewhere for support.

Hatch was a superstar in the C. Thomas confirmation hearings. When Chairman Biden left the room late in the hearings (and not in Primetime), the rules of the committe were trashed by Senators Kennedy and Metzenbaum. While these two idiots did try the usual Democrat hatchet job, Hatch put the brakes on it and forced Senator Biden, when he returned to correct things. Hatch was a trooper with Reagan. Hatch has done a great job at times. Its just he is long past his ´use by´ date. Good move Senator Hatch and enjoy your well deserved retirement.

It´s always funny when posters warn me about things while supporting GOP establishment candidates who exemplify those things. People came to Trump at different times for different reasons. After the election, Mitt Romney came to Trump when he wanted a job.

Before that, Romney was the most prominent Never Trumper in the GOP. He did everything in his power to lose the presidency to Hillary Clinton.

Mitt Romney is, and always has been, a politically unprincipled opportunist. We elect guys like this at our peril.

Anybody But Romney.

Trump’s 2020 Census May Cost California
Congressional Seat by Counting Citizens
Breitbart California, by Chriss W. Street    Original Article

Democrats fear the Trump administration’s re-reinstatement of citizenship questions on the 2020 U.S. Census will cost California a Congressional seat and billions in funding.The number of U.S. House of Representative seats was fixed by law in 1911 at 435. The “enumeration” requires at that each state have at least one Representative, and the other Representatives are allocated according to population as determined by the U.S. Census every ten years. Based on the 2010 Census data, California received the most, at 53.But Politico reports that could change with the Department of Justice sending a letter on December 12 to the Census

Democrats are threatening to hold national security hostage, potentially costing the economy billions and forcing hundreds of thousands of federal government employees to go without pay in exchange for securing legal protections for 800,000 illegal immigrants.Congress has three days to strike a deal to keep the government funded through October. If members fail to come to an agreement by Jan. 19, all “non-essential” government employees and active U.S. Military personnel will be working with out pay (including troops currently deployed).

Why Leftists Hate Masculinity

An ongoing mantra of the left is that everyone is a victim, with a singular carve-out for white men. A large group of the female population has embraced this chant. While there may be a number of grievances put forth by this movement, there also comes a theme that is particularly dangerous: the feminist attack on masculinity. This is derived not only from feminists; it comes from the left in general. There has emerged a war on masculinity. Why? Because masculine men are harder to control under tyrannical socialism. The modern beta male, on the other hand, craves socialism. This

Are Mothers Happier Being Homemakers
Or Working Full-Time?
Daily Wire, by Amanda Prestigiacomo    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 1/16/2018 10:18:47 PM     Post Reply
Despite the onslaught of propaganda telling young girls otherwise, a recent research paper distilling data from over 30 European countries concluded that mothers find homemaking preferable to working full-time. Doc. PhDr. Dana Hamplová, Ph.D., a senior scientist at the Institute of Sociology, ASCR, and a current representative of the Czech Republic in the International Social Science Program, authored the paper. Addressing Betty Friedan´s narrative in the book The Feminine Mystique, which claims that women are happiest and most fulfilled at work, Hamplová "explores the link between employment and subjective well-being among mothers with children under 3 years of age," reads

President Trump’s latest obloquy—calling a number of countries “s**tholes” and asking why we are expected to accept their immigrants—is offensive for all the reasons you’ve probably heard: it’s insulting, racially divisive, callous, and so on. The United States has welcomed immigrants from various “s**thole” countries for much of its history. Those schleppers worked, sweated, and saved, started businesses, paid taxes, and asked God to bless America.If only that was all there was to it. As is so often case in this president’s administration, noxious wording is distracting from a serious public-policy debate. The truth is that an “hourglass,” low-mobility, big-government

While Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) says he is “focused” and working “full time” for illegal aliens, black Americans in his state of Illinois remain excessively unemployed, far above the national average.On Monday, as Breitbart News reported, Durbin admitted that he is working around the clock, not for his underrepresented constituents in Illinois, but rather illegal aliens who have been shielded from deportation by a President Obama-created amnesty program.“I’m focused on one thing — not that meeting — but on making sure that those who are being protected by DACA and eligible for the DREAM Act have a future in America,”

NBC plans to televise any players who refuse to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl, but there may be nothing to show. It appears that NFL players are no longer taking a knee during the national anthem, namely because none of the teams with still-active protesters has qualified for the postseason. By the end of the regular season, only five teams featured at least one player regularly sitting or kneeling on the sidelines for the anthem: the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers, the Miami Dolphins, the New York Giants and the Oakland Raiders. None of those franchises made the

Mitt Romney took a swipe at Donald Trump on Monday, condemning the crude comments the president was said to have made about Haiti and African countries -- calling them “inconsistent (with) America’s history and antithetical to American values” with a reference to Martin Luther King, Jr. The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race,” Romney tweeted. “The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/America’s history and antithetical to American values. May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & ‘charity for all.’”

Ever since Donald Trump entered the political arena, his intelligence has been viciously attacked and his supporters have been labeled as moronic deplorables. In a recent Trump tweet, the president responded to the most recent attack by saying he is a stable genius. The mainstream media never bothered checking evidence of Obama´s intelligence before one historian declared him "the smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency", even though his academic records were sealed. What these attacks do prove is who the real brains are and who are the dummies: Alan Dershowitz may be for real
