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.

U.S. poised to announce exit from United
Nations human rights council today
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 6/19/2018 1:58:33 PM     Post Reply
The Trump administration is poised to announce its departure from the United Nations´ main human rights body in its latest withdrawal from an international institution. Officials say Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley will deliver the verdict on the U.N. Human Rights Council in a joint appearance at the State Department on Tuesday. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly preview the decision. Haley threatened the pull-out last year, citing longstanding U.S. complaints that the 47-member council is biased against Israel.

The FBI´s Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, confirmed late Monday that former FBI director James Comey is under investigation, with investigators looking into whether Comey mishandled classified information when he shared records of his conversations with President Donald Trump with a friend. Fox News reports that the Justice Department is looking into whether Comey intentionally or unintentionally passed a friend, Columbia University Professor Daniel Richman, when he sent Richman written "conversation records" that Richman then leaked to members of the press.

President Trump on Tuesday restated his support for his administration´s policy of separating migrant families at the U.S. border, calling Democrats "the problem." “We must always arrest people coming into our Country illegally. Of the 12,000 children, 10,000 are being sent by their parents on a very dangerous trip, and only 2000 are with their parents, many of whom have tried to enter our Country illegally on numerous occasions,” he wrote on Twitter.

It´s Happening: The Obama-Holder
Progressive Left Counter-Offensive

Posted By: JoniTx- 6/19/2018 7:06:23 AM     Post Reply
Former President Barack Obama and former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder have planned — and are leading — a massive counter-offensive to give the progressive left faction of the Democratic Party control of key state legislative bodies and state supreme courts in time for congressional redistricting after the 2020 census. If they are successful, Democrats could well control the U.S. House of Representatives for the decade of the 20s and have in place a progressive left farm team from which to draw leftist national leaders for many years beyond. Presently, Republicans control 67 of our nation’s 99 state legislative bodies.

When you venture into these two areas while making a political point, it’s guaranteed that it’ll blow up in your face: Saying x, y, or z is like Hitler, or making any Nazi reference, and describing any event that you didn’t like as devastating as the 9/11 terror attacks. No, unless you’re specifically talking about Nazis from history or neo-Nazis, their loser counterparts, then nothing outside of those who espouse the race-based National Socialism is like the Nazis. And unless it’s a legitimate terror attack in which the carnage is beyond description, then nothing is as devastating as September 11.

The IG report is really Comey 2.0. Comey spent a long time describing how Hillary had broken the law but then concluded that it was okay. Similarly, the IG report lists example after example of political bias but declares that it had no impact on the Hillary email whitewash. The IG report on the Clinton email investigation is proof positive that the entire DC justice establishment is corrupt; that they view themselves as rulers not public servants. First we were told that Comey was a straight shooter whom we could trust. Then we were told the same about Mueller, Rosenstein,

Former first lady Laura Bush tore into the Trump administration for separating migrant families at the border, calling the “zero tolerance” policy “cruel” and “immoral.” Bush penned an op-ed for the Washington Post, which was published Sunday night as public outcry over the hundreds of children in detention centers intensified. “I live in a border state,” Bush wrote. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Bush’s commentary comes as more images and accounts from inside the detention centers have

Michelle Obama joined her fellow former first lady Laura Bush Monday in criticizing the hard-line Trump administration immigration policy that has led to families being separated at the border. Bush, the wife of former President George W. Bush, penned a tweet over the weekend in which she echoed the widespread condemnation of the new directive from Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “I live in a border state,” Bush said. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Quoting that tweet, Obama wrote that “sometimes truth transcends

At an awards lunch for the Women’s Forum of New York, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee called out “those who selectively use the Bible” to give grounds for the separations, which were reported by the Department of Justice on Friday. “I went to a lot of years of Sunday school — even taught it from time to time.

Republican Senate candidate Mitt Romney called on the Trump administration Monday to stop separating immigrant families at the southern border, calling the controversy a “humanitarian crisis” that requires Congress to devise a permanent solution. Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, declined to blame President Trump or the Department of Homeland Security specifically in remarks to a group of voters at a park here. He called images of children separated from their parents “pretty disturbing” and “heartbreaking.” “I think immediately we should go back to the setting where we’re not ripping children away from their parents, and then we expect Congress to take

LANSING — The unprecedented outpouring of activism from students after the shooting at Marjorie Douglas Stoneman High School in Parkland, Fla., in February is the genesis for a bill introduced in the Legislature last week that would change the voting age in Michigan to 16. "We allow 16-year-olds to go off and get jobs and pay taxes, but we fail to allow them to exercise their voice come election time," said Sen. David Knezek, D-Dearborn Heights. "Young people are setting aside their differences and identifying issues they think need to change. And they can do everything to get that change

Illegal Immigration: The latest outrage by the Trump administration is its policy of "ripping" children away from parents who´ve crossed the border illegally. As with so many other things involving Trump, there´s plenty of emotion but precious little in the way of facts. The furor reached critical mass after the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday that 1,995 children had been separated from their illegal border crossing parents from mid-April through May. That number included, DHS said, cases where the adults were arrested for illegal entry, immigration violations, or possible criminal conduct. The practice has generated a rising storm of protests,

Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the daughter character "Darlene," which would exclude Roseanne. Unfortunately, Roseanne Barr owns a chunk of the show, and ABC doesn´t want to be seen letting Barr profit from it, so ABC is in talks to buy the show from Barr so she would not technically profit
