Romney Recall

February 7, 2020

Give Sen. Mitt Romney credit for one thing: he’s certainly sparked a renewed interest in politics back in his “home state” of Utah. By voting with the Democrats to convict President Trump on their first Article of Impeachment (abusing his power by using it pretty much the same way every President in history has), Romney has spurred a flurry of citizen activism. Some Trump critics have turned out to rally, declaring him a hero and the conscience of DC (I suspect they're the same people who called Romney a racist, elitist, bullying, dog-torturing, corporate raider who gave his employees cancer and kept women in binders, back when he was on the other side – and who will again, the minute he inevitably flip-flops).

Meanwhile, a bill to allow voters to recall errant Senators that has been languishing in the Utah state House since before impeachment even became an issue suddenly has half a dozen new co-sponsors. Its author, Rep. Tim Quinn, says he got over a hundred phone calls and 250 emails in just over an hour that were “100% positive.”

Romney supporters say he shouldn’t be recalled for displaying “character.” Why, exactly, it shows “character” to violate your sworn oath to “support and defend the Constitution” by ratifying the House’s unprecedented, partisan and unconstitutional impeachment process, or to find someone guilty on evidence that one week before he’d proclaimed to be insufficient to determine guilt, I cannot say. I do think the vote showed Romney’s predicable character, which I predicted here before he even announced it by referencing the fable about the scorpion that stung the friendly frog that was giving it a ride across the river. The scorpion explained, “It’s in my nature.”

Romney obviously believes he was taking the moral, Biblical high ground (aside from ignoring the “Thou shalt not bear false witness” part.) But for those in Utah who believe he should be recalled and are looking for grounds that Romney cannot argue with without looking like a hypocrite, try this:

“The great state of Utah deserves a Senator who didn’t win his election largely because of the endorsement of a President whom he himself has officially declared to be guilty of a ‘severe,’ ‘egregious’ and ‘abusive’ attack on the Constitution.”

In fact, if he really is as morally superior as he claims to be, shouldn’t he save the public the trouble of changing the law and recalling him by resigning for his own egregious sin of accepting the Senate endorsement of such a terrible, lawless President? He even unsuccessfully angled for a job as his Secretary of State. Just think, if he’d actually gotten that job, the Democrats would have subpoenaed him to reveal classified, personal conversations with the President…and when Trump cited executive privilege, imagine what his new pals would be calling Romney now!

Daily Bible Verse

February 6, 2020

"Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD,
and whose hope the LORD is.
For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters,
and that spreadeth out her roots by the river,

and shall not see when heat cometh,
but her leaf shall be green;
and shall not be careful in the year of drought,
neither shall cease from yielding fruit."

-Jeremiah 17:7-8

Romney is full of Mitt

February 6, 2020

Utah Senator Mitt Rommey, explaining on Wednesday his vote to convict and remove President Trump from office for “abuse of power,” showed his willingness to swallow hook, line and sinker the House managers’ case. I’m referring to the case the managers absolutely did NOT prove (which is why Trump was acquitted on Wednesday).

In fact, Romney, acting on his "conscience" and his “oath to God,” sounded as if he could’ve BEEN one of those House managers. Who needs Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler to spout unfounded allegations when you have Mitt Romney to do it? And now Mitt will go down in history as the first senator ever to vote to convict and remove a President of his own party.

Democrats and all anti-Trumpers are turning him into a hero, thumbing their noses at those who took due process and the rules of evidence seriously and concluded the House didn’t prove its case. If you can stomach it, here’s Jennifer Rubin in THE WASHINGTON POST: “His vote and more importantly his speech matter greatly, if only as reminders that every American has the capacity for greatness, the ability to stand on principle and the spine to refuse the entreaties of the mob.”

Mitt buys load of Schiff

February 5, 2020

Finally, Mitt Romney buys the load of Schiff. He's still upset he choked against Obama & begged for Sec of State but was passed over by President Trump(thank goodness!). He makes a fine Democrat Senator for Utah. I sure miss Orrin Hatch who was a statesman. Utah deserves better. We all do.

Pelosi's mental breakdown

February 5, 2020

Nancy Pelosi's mental breakdown in ripping speech reminded of Mike Tyson biting Evander Holyfield's ear off. Historically low mark for any American politician. She disgraced herself, the House, & her party. And she probably hates baseball, apple pie, and country music!

Coming this December

February 5, 2020

Dems just announced they will release the rest of the IA caucus results....in December. And Nancy Pelosi will rip them in half before we can find out Bernie won and Epstein didn't kill himself.

Doug Jones call your office

February 5, 2020

Memo to Doug Jones of AL: You said you've had sleepless nights over impeachment verdict. Good news! After Nov, you'll be able to sleep late every day. You'll be back in AL.

Hope you enjoyed your brief time in the Senate. If you need some boxes to pack your stuff, let us know.

The University of Montana held a Martin Luther King Day essay-writing contest open to all students, and the winners were white.  The judging was blind with the entrants’ races not known, but the only students who chose to enter were white.  Predictable response: fury and “OUTRAGE!” on the Internet.  

Gosh, can you imagine how outraged the Rev. King would’ve been to know that someday, in his name, young Americans would be judged by the content of their essays rather than the color of their skin?!  Oh, wait a minute…

After three years of people in the public spotlight of sports and show business being bullied into lockstep condemnation of President Trump, parroting “woke” clichés and alienating half of their fans (Taylor Swift, are you listening?), this statement from the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs is a refreshing change. Let’s hope it’s also a sea change that signals people are fed up with the “cancel culture” and are ready to tell the self-appointed leftist Thought Police to go cancel themselves.

Hopefully this never happens

Bernie Sanders says if he’s President, he’ll have the federal government take over electricity production. So great news: your electric power will be created with all the efficiency the Democrats demonstrated in running the Iowa Caucuses. I'm sure liberals will be outraged if I predict we’d all end up sitting in the dark. But isn't that already happening in California?

Swift Action

February 3, 2020

President Trump is taking swift action to curtail the spread of the deadly Chinese coronavirus. Friday, he imposed a ban on travel from China and ordered the first mandatory quarantine in 50 years. As of Saturday, there had been about 12,000 confirmed cases and 250 deaths, none outside of China. This is one of those stories that develops and changes by the minute, so check the link to catch up on details, and keep a close eye on the news for updates.

And here’s a round-up of more recent news on the coronavirus, including the question of whether you can catch it from a package sent from China (according to experts, the risk ranges from very low to zero.)

Stunning Rush Limbaugh News

February 3, 2020

The news that Rush Limbaugh disclosed that he has advanced lung cancer was heartbreaking.  Rush single-handedly saved AM radio in the late 1980’s by introducing a type of talk radio unique and entertaining.  His dominance of the medium has lasted for over 30 years, which in itself is a stunning run of leading the pack and creating most of it.  Those who know him personally speak of his kindness and decency.  His critics would not likely affirm that, but Rush has always used his bombastic on-air personality to build his audience and exploit the often hilarious double standards of the left. 

We all pray that treatments will work and he will continue, but there’s no doubt that his imprint on our political culture will remain as a force of nature.

Now that the impeachment trial of President Trump is set to end in an acquittal with a formal vote on Wednesday, the Democrats HAVE to delegitimize it, and that’s what they'll try to do when the Senate reconvenes on Monday at 11 AM Eastern for final arguments by House managers and Trump's legal counsel, two hours for each side. The mainline of attack by House managers will likely be to claim it wasn't a "real" trial --- and won't be a "real" acquittal --- because no new witnesses were called in the Senate, even though the House failed to call all their “wish list” witnesses at the appropriate time, during the impeachment “inquiry.” (They still had 17 witnesses testify –- 18 if we include ICIG Michael Atkinson’s testimony concerning the “whistleblower,” the one whose transcript Adam Schiff is still withholding.) That line of attack is bogus; it’s true that witnesses were called at previous impeachment trials, but not new witnesses. The fishing expedition was never allowed to continue --- until this time because it’s Trump.
