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).

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.

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.

WASHINGTON- The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Monday that the Republican-led Legislature in Texas improperly used race to draw a predominantly Latino House district in Fort Worth, but turned back a lower court ruling that blocked the state from using other legislative and congressional district boundaries under challenge for allegedly diluting the voting power of black and Latino voters. The mixed 5-4 decision written by Justice Samuel Alito leaves in place much of Texas’ political map for the 2018 midterm elections, upholding - for now - political boundaries that have been under court review for nearly a decade.

US Sen. Joe Manchin cracked the rib of US Sen. Claire McCaskill while performing the Heimlich maneuver on the fellow Democrat when she began choking. A spokesman for Manchin tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that McCaskill began choking during a luncheon for Senate Democrats on Thursday. Manchin used the Heimlich maneuver to dislodge the blockage in McCaskill´s throat, but he cracked a rib in the process.

In the midst of the recent media hysteria over immigration policy, it’s important to consider that partisan politics loves to dwell in a constant state of controversy, because this encourages tribalism. Consider TIME’s latest cover. It’s a complete sham, intentionally misleading, and its obvious purpose is simply agenda-driven messaging to continue the hysteria. Much like two teams clashing on a sports field with the loyal fans’ emotions stirred into a frenzy and the goal simply to dominate and win, this kind of politicking isn’t framed toward reaching genuine solutions.If our aim is only to win, then we are measuring the

Having served on active duty in uniform from 1965-1975, first at the US Naval Academy then as a Marine Officer, it was sad to feel hate when members of the public called us baby killers and worse. The worse included at times cowardly personal attacks such as spitting and running away, or “accidentally” stepping on shoes or bumping just enough to avoid proving a physical response. The lowest of the low were anti-war activists reaching out directly to the families of the fallen to say their loved one had it coming. We all had sworn an oath to support and

Driven by impotent rage, political extremism, and their own frustration at President Trump’s ongoing foreign and domestic successes, the establishment media had its worst week in years last week surrounding their now-debunked border separation hoax. The timing of last week’s disaster (which I will detail in a sec), could not have been worse. It came right on the heels of a Gallup poll full of dreadful news. A clean majority of 62 percent believe the “traditional news media” is biased. A full 44 percent believe the media is inaccurate, and another 39 percent believe the media spread misinformation.

When the obituary for the Republican Party is written, the year 1980 will be cited as the beginning of the end. Reaganism was in full flower, but the big tent was already folding. Republican leaders endorsed a constitutional ban on abortion at the convention that summer, ending the party’s historic commitment to women’s rights and personal freedom. “We are about to bury the rights of over 100 million American women under a heap of platitudes,” protested Mary Dent Crisp, the co-chairwoman of the Republican National Committee. Her colleagues assured her that the platform was nonbinding and that reproductive health services

The CBS News 2018 Battleground Tracker Poll conducted by YouGov June 21-22 during the midst of the controversy over migrant families and unaccompanied children flooding the southern border shows a shift toward President Trump’s views since a March CBS poll by SSRS showed 60 percent opposed a wall.

The far-ranging conversation, which reportedly took place shortly after Barr was booted from her namesake television show in the wake of a controversial Twitter remark, reveals an emotional reaction by Barr to accusations of racism. It also touched on politics, Judaism, and forgiveness. Boteach is a conservative spiritual advisor to several celebrities, including, at one time, Michael Jackson.

Chicago - A division of the American Library Association has voted to remove the name of Laura Ingalls Wilder from a major children’s book award, over concerns about how the author portrayed African Americans and Native Americans. The board of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) made the unanimous decision to change the name on Saturday, at a meeting in New Orleans. The name of the prize was changed from the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal to the Children’s Literature Legacy Award.

(Snip) The US Constitution´s Fifth Amendment guarantees the right to "due process of law" in criminal proceedings. In 1953, the Supreme Court clarified this right extended to non-US citizens.

The boycott-Trump movement has resurged. Shannon Coulter, a brand and digital strategist, started the #GrabYourWallet hashtag in October 2016 to encourage people seeking a way to take concrete action against Donald Trump to boycott companies — large and small — that do business with his family. As a result, brands such as Nordstrom, Jet.com, and Gilt dropped Ivanka Trump´s fashion line last year. While Coulter has remained steadfast in her quest to encourage the other 62 retailers, nonprofits, and even a movie produced by Harvey Weinstein to ditch Trump products, the issue has peaked once more among consumers and

It´s come to this: according to some, people should be picking their casual dining choices based on their politics. NPR published an opinion piece by writer Monique Truong that claims in the headline that it is "hypocrisy" for administration members who support President Trump´s way of handling the long-ignored border crisis to eat at Mexican restaurants. These are people who work for the president, of course, so they are essentially being taken to task for doing their jobs.
