‘I’m Running,’ Romney Says Privately,
but as a Trump Friend or Foe?

New York Times, by Jonathan Martin

Salt Lake City - A few days after Senator Orrin G. Hatch of Utah announced that he would conclude his tenure after serving 42 years in office, the state’s governor, Gary Herbert, was growing anxious about whether Mitt Romney would run for the seat. “Let’s not be coy about this,” Mr. Herbert said he told a close Romney friend and prominent business leader, Kem Gardner. “If he’s going to run, let’s go. If not, we need to find somebody else to run, and there’s people that have been trying to queue up for the opportunity.” Last Saturday, Mr. Gardner called the governor and read from a text that Mr. Romney had offered: “I’m

What about Orka and Fauxcahontas? These dRATS are so depleted that being at the bottom of the barrel is sitting on the top. Eventually, PIAPS, if not in prison, will step in and demand a WWE cage match. This keeps up, they´ll have to recruit some dimension-challenged Disney cartoon character... The question will be then, who will supply the voice?

No mention here of the question of residency. Are Utahans anxious to welcome an obvious carpetbagger/opportunist to drop in and expect to be elected Senator? I doubt it.

Fake threats will get you lots of free publicity. But if you do run, you will have enormous overwhelming opposition from Conservatives, let alone Democrats. If Mitch is putting you up to this, just thank him and save yourself a lot of punishment. Roy Moore was a walk on the beach compared to what’s in store for you.

The GOPe has a death wish, and they keep proving it over and over. They would rather lose an election than allow a candidate who isn´t bought and paid for. They deserve to disappear forever, but if they did we know what would happen. All the former GOPe´rs would look which way the crowd is going, then run out front and pretend they were with us all along.
Establishment politicans are all phoney, all choreographed, and wouldn´t know integrity if it bit them.

Barack Obama told a crowd in San Diego gathered at the Association for Talent Development Conference that he is “worried about our country” because nobody in leadership is insisting on “facts,” and that “like, facts are really useful” to sound decision-making. Agreed, Mr. Ex-President. Like, facts are really useful.

One of America’s biggest companies confirmed Tuesday evening that it had paid a company owned by President Trump’s personal lawyer in 2017. In a statement to CNBC and other news outlets, AT&T said it paid Essential Consulting LLC, which was wholly owned by Michael Cohen, as an entry into dealing with the Trump administration. “Essential Consulting was one of several firms we engaged in early 2017 to provide insights into understanding the new administration. They did no legal or lobbying work for us, and the contract ended in December 2017,” AT&T said. (Tweet).

Despite lobbying from European allies, President Trump moved forward Tuesday with his campaign promise to pull out of the 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran. He made the announcement from the White House, where he denounced the deal as "defective at its core." (Snip) Moments later, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said he has ordered the foreign minister to negotiate with the other countries that remain in the nuclear deal.

(Video) - Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is traveling to North Korea to lay the groundwork for President Donald Trump´s summit with Kim Jong Un. While there, Pompeo says he will raise the plight of the three Americans detained by North Korea, but has no commitments for their release. The trip – Pompeo´s second to the highly secretive country – is a sign of the Trump administration accelerating the diplomatic opening with North Korea, as it pushes for Kim to relinquish his nuclear missile program. (Snip) President Donald Trump revealed Pompeo's trip as he announced the U.S. is withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal.

Maryland health insurers on Monday requested rate hikes on Obamacare plans averaging 30 percent, signaling consumers could be in for another round of sticker shock next year. CareFirst Blue Cross Blue Shield is seeking a 18.5 percent increase on the HMO plan that covers the lion’s share of its members, and a whopping 91 percent increase for one of its PPO plans. Kaiser Permanente sought an increase of about 37 percent. Proposed rate hikes, which must be reviewed by regulators and could be slashed before open enrollment begins Nov. 1, averaged 30.2 percent across all plans being offered in 2019. Maryland Gov.

Washington - President Trump said on Monday that he was ready to announce whether he would pull the United States out of the Iran nuclear deal, as European officials quietly indicated they had failed to convince the administration that dismantling the accord would be a huge diplomatic error. Diplomats who were familiar with the negotiations said Mr. Trump appeared inclined to scrap the deal and reimpose sanctions on Iran that were suspended in an accord reached in Vienna in July 2015. But it is unclear whether he would moderate that move, perhaps by allowing the European nations to move ahead with their economic

President Trump is sending a plan to Congress that calls for stripping back more than $15 billion in previously approved spending, with the hope that it will temper conservative angst over ballooning budget deficits. Almost half of the proposed cuts would come from two accounts within the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) that White House officials said expired last year or are not expected to be drawn upon. (Snip) Those are just a handful of the more than 30 programs the White House is proposing to Congress for “rescission,” a process of culling back money that was previously authorized.

Arizona Senator and 2008 Republican presidential nominee John McCain is reportedly making preparations for his own funeral, with requests that former presidents George Walker Bush and Barack Obama attend the ceremony and eulogize him. McCain, 81, was diagnosed last July with primary glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer. The tumor was discovered during a routine physical the senator underwent in early July. After complaining of fatigue and double vision, McCain was given a CT scan, which revealed a clot just below his left eyebrow. While some patients can, with aggressive treatment live, as long as 5 to 10 years,

Hillary Clinton has been spotted on multiple occasions lately wearing long jackets paired with colorful scarves that cover her neck and drape down over her back.

When does a gross indiscretion, aimed at undermining President Trump through private negotiations with a sworn enemy of America, become something bigger? Former Secretary of State John Kerry, deep into his months-long “shadow diplomacy” with Iran, is testing the point. Truth is, the antiquated Logan Act – which bars exactly that sort of extra-legal, unofficial and patently officious and offensive behavior – has never been enforced, although referenced as late as 1991 by the Supreme Court. That does not make Kerry’s behavior acceptable, patriotic or defensible. In fact, at a time when everyone from President Trump to America’s national security

Former Secretary of State John Kerry recently told a confidant of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas that he is considering a second run for the presidency in 2020. Kerry ran unsuccessfully against President George W. Bush in 2004.

McCain prefers instead that Vice President Mike Pence attend his funeral rather than Trump, who has mocked McCain for being tortured and attacked him for voting against Obamacare repeal. But Hatch said he thought keeping the president from his funeral was too much: "I think it´s ridiculous." "Well, he´s the president of the United States and he´s a very good man. But it´s up to [McCain]. I think John should have his own wishes fulfilled with regard to
