Mitt Romney gave 20 paid speeches from early 2017 to early 2018, earning him more than $1.5 million, according to a personal financial disclosure he filed with the U.S. Senate. Romney, who is running for a Senate seat in Utah, received between $15,000 and $137,000 per speech from February 2017 to February 2018. He gave speeches to organizations across an array of industries, including finance, media and insurance.

You´d have to pay me $1.5 million to listen to one of Mitten´s yakfests.

And you don´t have enough money to get me to sit through Emperor Obama the First´s gabfests.

A sucker is born every minute. And they give their money to Clinton, Obama and Mittens.

Hey, what difference does it make???

He will just be another RINO Republi-CAN´T in the minority of both houses of Congress come January. After passing that horrible spending bill, it´s exactly what they deserve.

The new Demon-RAT majority in both houses of Congress will impeach Trump, and he will have deserved it after signing that horrible spending bill.

This Republic is officially on it´s death watch. It´s only a matter of time. Kiss your guns and Bibles goodbye, since the LIE-berals will quickly outlaw both. It sure would be nice if there was actually a conservative opposition party who might protect our Constitutional rights...

I carry no water for Mitt, but a good chunk of that money goes to the US Treasury and the speech broker. Still a nice paycheck.
Someone offered me that for a speech, I´d do it.

He’s self centered egotistical and a money grubbing old fool. Perfect profile for a progressive senator from a state where he has never lived in for long. I wonder if he talked about his dog in a crate on the roof of his family station wagon. Or maybe he talked about how great Mittenscare is for his home state. Really he’s going to bad mouth Trump and use the opportunity to to a test balloon on his run I g for President again.

$1.5 million? The Clintons are net that in one night´s speaking gigs. What’s the big deal? Stories like this, ignoring the Clintons while while piling on Republican Romney, only make conservative readers more entrenched in their conservative ideology.

Keep it up.

Heard his interview on a local, Salt Lake radio station the day after McCabe was fired. He said, McCabe should have been allowed to retire because of his years of honorable service. The rest of the interview was filled with the same tripe. He is the anti-Trump; opposed to every tactic and belief that has made Trump successful.

The Man Who Paved the Way
for Irish America’s Rise
National Review, by John Loughery    Original Article
Posted By: Tishimself- 4/16/2018 8:13:10     Post Reply
There is a kind of modernity to the 19th-century story of New York archbishop John Hughes, in terms of three issues we still have cause to ponder in the United States: namely, the nature of community, the utility of any form of identity politics, and our national embrace of — and, in some quarters now, new skepticism about — multiple cultural identities. Hughes gave thought to the forces that were necessary to forge a tight-knit community, and his answers, if dangerous in our own day, seemed more reasonable to him. He did not share Bishop Benedict Joseph Fenwick’s gentleness when

Tim Draper is a rich man, but he understands he doesn´t know it all. His first attempt to divide California into six states made very little sense. So he went out and got some people who are experts on the subject. The result, Cal 3, is a political masterpiece. This could work. When California was admitted to the union in 1850 it had only 92,000 people, most of them scrambling for gold in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. That´s why California´s county lines are so screwy. Los Angeles County now has 10,000,000 people. Alpine County has 1,000. Cal 3 divides the

In today´s public dialogue, there´s a lot of talk back and forth over the transgender issue. And why not? Transgenderism has been made into a cause celebre by the cultural elite. Many, myself included, view this as part of the ongoing effort by the Left to separate America from God and tradition. For that reason, it is worthwhile to delve a little deeper into the issue than what is normally provided by what is claimed by transgender people themselves.

New Twists Emerge in Leadership
Race to Replace Paul Ryan

Two twists emerged Friday in the leadership race to replace retiring Speaker Paul D. Ryan. House Freedom Caucus founding member Jim Jordan said he’d consider a run while Ryan endorsed Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. “There is no speaker’s race right now,” Jordan told reporters. “Paul Ryan is the speaker. If and when there is, I’ve been urged by colleagues to consider that and I am definitely open to that. Right now though the focus has got to be on the next six months, us keeping the majority.” Jordan is a tactical politician. His move is not about actually believing he could win

Mr. Dooley Had It Backwards

What would Mr. Dooley make of the latest alarum from the New York Times about how America’s state courts are under “partisan attack”? Mr. Dooley is the fictional bartender who famously proclaimed that “the Supreme Court follows the election returns.” The Times has been set off by what is happening in Wisconsin, Kansas, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. Those are among the states where voters are so upset with judicial decisions that they’re taking to politics to curb the courts. Across the country, the Times warns in an editorial, “state judges are under increasing fire from lawmakers and outside groups angered by their rulings, their power, their tenure or simply their independence.”

GOP devotes $250M to
midterm strategy: Keep House majority
Trucker, by AP Staff    Original Article

The Republican National Committee has committed $250 million to a midterm election strategy that has one goal above all else: Preserve the party´s House majority for the rest of President Donald Trump´s first term.Facing the prospect of a blue wave this fall, the White House´s political arm is devoting unprecedented resources to building an army of paid staff and trained volunteers across more than two dozen states. The RNC is taking the fight to Senate Democrats in Republican-leaning states, but much of the national GOP´s resources are focused on protecting Republican-held House seats in states including Florida, California and New

Paul Ryan was waiting

Long before he became speaker of the House of Representatives, Paul Ryan had a simple dream: to play Jack Kemp to a future Republican president’s Ronald Reagan. In a cruel twist of fate, Ryan instead had to reprise Kemp’s role with President Trump. Kemp, Ryan’s idol, helped craft the tax cut that eventually became the centerpiece of Reagan’s supply-side economic agenda. From his early years representing a Wisconsin swing district in Congress, Ryan was unveiling sweeping budget and reform plans he hoped would someday become law.

As the interim senator, Hyde-Smith is expected to run in the November special election that will be held to elect a replacement to complete Cochran’s current term that ends in January 2021.

The Republicans’ central Senate super PAC is making a major push to ask its donors to give directly to GOP Senate candidates, including by enlisting top GOP strategist Karl Rove to solicit donations. There is heightened urgency for candidates to step up their fundraising game after Tuesday’s 18th Congressional District race in Pennsylvania, said officials from the Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC that is a part of the American Crossroads network of big-money GOP groups founded with help from Rove. GOP outside groups poured heavily into the race — a reliable Republican district that President Trump carried by 20 points in

Eleven Republicans stepped forward before a Thursday evening filing deadline to challenge former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in the Utah Senate race, including a state lawmaker who says an "establishment insider" can´t fix problems in Washington. Many of the candidates acknowledge the David-vs-Goliath nature of challenging the famous and popular Romney, but they say someone needs to keep the race to replace Republican Orrin Hatch from becoming a "coronation.” "I think he's just expecting to run away with this thing,"

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is under attack in his race to replace retiring Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, in a new ad released Thursday labeling the former Massachusetts Gov. as an establishment “flip-flopper” with “liberal Massachusetts values.” “The D.C. establishment loves Mitt Romney,” the ad narrator states. “But Utah voters have a better choice.” The ad released by right-wing primary challenger Utah attorney Larry Meyers, brings back popular lines of attack that were used during Romney’s run for the White House in the 2012 election cycle, accusing Romney of changing his position on key issues important to Republican primary voters.

The body count is staggering. In my 43 years as a journalist, armies of trained bloodhounds have been run out of newsrooms where I´ve worked, victims of layoffs, and buyouts, and battle fatigue. I´ve lost so many hundreds of colleagues, I can´t keep track of where they ended up. These were smart, curious reporters, photographers and editors who told stories that defined place and time and made us all know each other a little better.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney called President Donald Trump to thank him for pardoning his former chief of staff, Scooter Libby. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told Breitbart News that Cheney phoned the president after the announcement was made. Before former President George W. Bush left office, he declined to pardon Libby, despite commuting his prison sentence. Cheney was angered by Bush’s decision, telling the president that he had left a soldier on the battlefield in the wake of the partisan investigation of the leak of CIA operative Valarie Plame’s name publicly to the media.

When Dick’s Sporting Goods said it would no longer sell modern sporting rifles at its Field & Stream stores following the Valentine’s Day shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school, one question was what would happen to the unsold firearms in its inventory. Typically a retailer may return unsold merchandise to the manufacturer. But in this case, Dick’s Sporting Goods has decided to destroy them. “We are in the process of destroying all firearms and accessories that are no longer for sale as a result of our February 28th policy change,” a spokeswoman told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “We are destroying the firearms
