(Video) - Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney is running for the Senate in Utah. Three people with direct knowledge of the plan tell the Associated Press Romney will formally launch his campaign in a video on Thursday. His first public appearance as a Senate candidate is scheduled for Friday in Utah. The people who provided the information asked for anonymity because they were not authorized to talk about Romney´s plans in advance. Romney, who is 70, is seeking to replace 83-year-old Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch, who is retiring after more than 40 years in the U.S. Senate. The former Massachusetts governor

Comments:
Another possible future thorn in Trump´s side. This should make McCain happy, if he lives so long.

I would like to see a young, retired Military person run against Romney. I don´t think it´s a slam dunk that Romney is going to win!

Romney is a shoo-in. Trusted in Utah.

He will not embarrass Utah by undermining the president.

And he sure won´t be buying Russian type dossiers in underground intrigue like McCain.

Like Hatch he i smart enough to see the advantage the Trump wave gave for the implementing of GOP ideals and policies.

But will be interesting to watch (and listen to the anti-Mitt/Mormon resistance?)

He isn´t running as president in 2020 bar national tragedy that would impel him IMO. Mitt is establishment GOP. IMO he knows he cannot win the presidency as he called himself in 2012 or ´16, a "flawed candidate".

That flaw, his religion that carries 150 year old baggage in some GOP demographics, flips in Utah where character counts (sometimes more than it should when political parties collide? ie, render unto Caesar or vote for issues not persona? )

Why have an election?
Honor Romney by giving the seat to him by acculmation
All the democrats will vote for him and 30% of the republicans. He’s bounced all over the country from, Utah, Michigan, Massachusetts and could not even defeat Obama. Next he will be heading to Oregon..

Have you ever seen Utah skies at nightfall? Haunting. Strangely beautiful. The same for Moab, Zion, Monument Valley, the city of wide streets built around Tabernacle. Was Joseph Smith a false prophet, who deceived the world with a false Christianity, using "seer stones" and an "angel" named Moroni? Nobody cares. We are,as Obama told us a Post-Christian country. Everyone loves the great controlled moral character of the Mormon people. In Mormon scripture which, lets face it contradicts and supersedes the Bible for Mormons making all other Christians "idiots", lies a story of a man who comes along in the latter days "when America hangs by a thread" and saves it. Many believe Bishop [sic] Romney is the man. Who else could it be? Harry Reid? Even though he is tied in to the Bush money people and the same New World Order people who are "one resist tactic" away from breaking us and the world economy, what Utah true believer could not vote for Romney? He runs not only for the addiction to power i his DNA, not only what he intends to do to Trump. Its not where the money comes from which is just a means to an end. All his friends take that money, and he knows they are slimier than he is. Its his destiny, and the new Jerusalem in Missouri may depend on him. Of course, you can´t really discuss this. Its absurd. Its out of the canon of approved thinking.

Mitt´s been endorsed by Orrin Hatch who hired Rob Porter.
So, there´s that.
Utah authorities got reports about Rob Porter´s spousal abuse from more than one wife yet did nothing.
So, there´s that.
IF Americans in & out of Utah care about women they will vote "other-than-Mitt."

It was not his religion that tripped him up. It was his lack of backbone. He had the opportunity to go on the attack with Obama, and he did not do it. He should have girded up and won that election.

As for now, we do not need another anti-DT.

Mitt Romney opposed his own party´s presidential nominee during a critical election. That alone should disqualify him from public office as a representative of that party. Nevermind later sucking up to that same man for a job.

Ugh. If there is anything we have learned from the President is that the American people want someone willing to fight for them; someone who is unafraid to respond to the lying media; and someone who understands the importance of restoring this country to its greatness. This does not describe Mitt Romney. He trashed our candidate viciously and then lobbied him for a job. So which is the genuine Mitt? Here’s a hint: whichever one benefits him more. Yep, I guess that’s the depth of his integrity. Trust him at your peril. He’s in it for Mitt.

I would rather have an enemy in front of me than a traitor behind me. When Democrats attack what is needed to save my country they look partisan and cheap. They own it. When Mitt Romney does it, he looks bipartisan and "statesmanlike." He helps sell it.

Romney likes looking "statesmanlike." Not one Republican voted for Obamacare. If one had, it would have damaged every effort to repeal. A Senator Mitt Romney will give them that one vote when they really need it.

I voted for Romney in 2012 when I lived in California.
I thought that his Mormonism
would have no real impact on public policy.
Then I moved to Utah and saw the stranglehold LDS has on the politics and culture here.
They believe in unfettered immigration.
I will be voting "Anyone but Romney" (includes dems.)

New York - Woody Allen and Mia Farrow’s adopted son, Moses Farrow, on Wednesday defended his father from allegations of sexual assault made by his sister. In a nearly 5,000-word post, Moses elaborated further on claims he had made in previous interviews that his mother was physically abusive to him and her other children and that she coerced her daughter Dylan into accusing Allen of assault. “I’m a very private person and not at all interested in public attention,” Farrow wrote in the post titled A Son Speaks Out.

President Trump is on a collision course with Congress on ZTE, the Chinese telecommunications giant sanctioned for doing business with Iran and North Korea. Trump has publicly signaled his desire to ease the restrictions on ZTE as he seeks China´s cooperation on North Korea talks and hammering out a trade deal. But Trump’s pivot on ZTE has received terrible reviews from Republicans in Congress, who have joined with Democrats in passing measures to ensure the restrictions are kept in place.

The video – taken by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration – comes from a brand new satellite launched to survey weather over the US. It allows scientists and weather experts to see activity above the Western Hemisphere in unprecedented detail. The data shown in the video can be used to plot where lightning is striking. That, in turn, allows them to predict whether intense weather and storms might be forming and then becoming dangerous – potentially allowing experts to spot

(Video) Washington - President Donald Trump has canceled his upcoming summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. In a letter to Kim, Trump wrote that it would be “inappropriate” to hold the planned historic summit. “Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long planned meeting,” he wrote. The summit was to take place June 12th in Singapore. Trump did leave the door open to a future meeting. “I felt a wonderful dialogue was building up between you and me, and ultimately, it is only that dialogue that matters.

North Korea on Thursday demolished what it claims to be its nuclear test site, setting off several explosions over the course of a few hours in the presence of foreign journalists. Sky News reporter Tom Cheshire was invited to the explosion and told the station that he and his colleagues walked up into the mountains to watch the demolition. “There was a huge explosion, you could feel it. Dust came at you, the heat came at you. It was extremely loud,” Cheshire said. The explosions at the supposed nuclear test site deep in the mountains were centered on three tunnels into the underground site and a number of observation towers in the

President Trump said former FBI Director James Comey was one of the "rotten apples" at the FBI, after Comey accused Trump of spreading lies about his former agency. “The FBI is a fantastic institution, but some of the people at the top were rotten apples. James Comey was one of them,” Trump told Fox News in an interview that aired Thursday. “I’ve done a great service to this country by getting rid of him, by firing him.” Comey said on Twitter Wednesday that Trump´s attacks on and lies about the FBI will cause “lasting damage” to the country. “Facts matter.

The finding by a Dutch-led team raised the likelihood Kremlin officials would face criminal charges for the downing of the BRUSSELS — A Dutch-led international team of investigators said Thursday that a missile that downed a Malaysian Airlines jetliner over eastern Ukraine in 2014 came from the Russian military, opening the possibility that Dutch prosecutors could sue the Kremlin in connection with the attack that killed all 298 on board. The long-running inquiry already established that a Russian-made Buk antiaircraft missile downed flight MH17, but it had not previously made a direct link to the Russian military.

It may be true that President Trump illegally conspired with Russia and was so good at covering it up he’s managed to outwit our best intel and media minds who´ve searched for irrefutable evidence for two years. (We still await special counsel Robert Mueller’s findings.) But there’s a growing appearance of alleged wrongdoing equally as insidious, if not more so, because it implies widespread misuse of America’s intelligence and law enforcement apparatus. Here are eight signs pointing to a counterintelligence operation deployed against Trump for political reasons. Code name: The operation reportedly had at least one code name

The party is also still reeling from the resignation of Democratic Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who stepped down earlier this month amid allegations he assaulted four women he dated.

The remote site deep in the mountains of the North´s sparsely populated northeast interior is expected to have a formal closing ceremony in the next day or two, depending on the weather. The closing was announced by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un ahead of his planned summit with U.S. President Donald Trump next month. (Snip) The group includes an Associated Press Television crew.

The Tampa Bay Times reported earlier this week that Publix had given $670,000 during the last three years to Putnam campaigns. Mr. Hogg not only sought atonement money from the grocery chain in Thursday’s tweet, he also demanded a pledge of ideological fealty to the

Some NFL players are reportedly considering new ways to protest after NFL owners voted on a new national anthem policy Wednesday, reports Sports Illustrated´s Robert Klemko. According to Klemko, some are discussing ways to skirt new rules "just to spite the NFL." The policy removes a requirement for players to be on the field for the anthem, and gives players the option to stay in the locker room. Teams will be fined for any personnel that "do not show proper respect for the flag and Anthem” on the sidelines. Other journalists were hearing similar things from players they talked to.

Thursday at the New York State Democratic Party’s convention on Long Island, former Vice President Joe Biden said the Republican Party in the era of President Donald Trump had abandoned American values in favor of “phony populism” and “fake nationalism.” Biden said,”This is not your father’s Republican Party. This is a different deal. They are not, they are not who we are. They are not who America is. But what they are doing is they sending a vision of America around the world that is distorted. That is damaging. That is hurting us with this phony populism and this fake

President Trump cannot block people from his @realDonaldTrump account just because he doesn’t like their political views, a Manhattan federal judge ruled on Wednesday. Doing so violates their First Amendment right to free speech because Twitter is a “public forum,” Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald wrote in a landmark ruling that could change how public officials use Twitter. “We reject the defendants’ contentions that the First Amendment does not apply in this case and that the President’s personal First Amendment interests supersede those of plaintiffs,” the judge wrote in her 75-page ?decision. The judge stopped short,

The NFL Players’ Association (NFLPA) on Wednesday criticized the league for its new national anthem policy. In a statement, the union said it would review the new policy and “challenge any aspect of it that is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement.” The union accused the league of contradicting its previous statements, and of ignoring players’ wishes in developing the new policy, which instructs that all team and league personnel should stand for the national anthem. “The NFL chose to not consult the union in the development of this new ‘policy,’” the union said in a statement. “NFL players have
