So, let’s see, the last time he ran for office he was beat by a community organizer. Then when President Trump was the R nominee Romney tried to sink him. He lives again! Zombie Romney, TURD.
From breitbart.com dated 6/12/2017 by Adam Shaw entitled, “Mitt 6.0? Latest Mitt Romney Appearance Stokes Speculation of Another Run”
Failed 2012 Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney offered lukewarm praise for President Trump over the weekend at his annual E2 summit — an appearance that included some rumblings of possibly yet another run for office from the former Massachusetts governor.
The annual summit in Utah, attracting wealthy Romney donors, political elites and business leaders, saw Romney declare that he and Trump are “not as far apart as I feared early on,” according to Utah’s KUER radio.
He reportedly pointed to Trump’s appointment of Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court and Trump’s pro-business economic policies as areas where the two agree. He also agreed with Trump’s approach to NATO. Romney had been widely rumored to be in contention for the position of Secretary of State — but Trump eventually went with Rex Tillerson.
In a Q&A, he called it “encouraging” that he had been considered for the position.
“I didn’t believe for a minute I could tell him what to do on any of those things, but I thought that that kind of openness was very encouraging,” Romney said. “And if he was willing to have me in that position, I would be anxious to serve because I love the country.
Yet the summit also raised the possibility that Romney is on maneuvers for a future run himself. According to Politico, in a closed-door appearance Friday, former Democratic Vice President Joe Biden floated the idea that Romney should run again — this time for the Senate.
Politico reported that Romney, who has previously spoken to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) about succeeding Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT), merely smiled in response to the remark as the audience applauded.
Should Romney run again, it would mark the latest in a long line of attempts to seek high office. He challenged Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy for his Massachusetts Senate seat in 1994, before running for and winning the Massachusetts gubernatorial race in 2002.
In 2008, Romney ran unsuccessfully for the Republican nomination, being beaten by Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), and lost to President Barack Obama after winning the nomination in 2012. He also considered running for the 2016 nomination, before deciding against it. However, he gave a speech in which he condemned Trump as “a phony, a fraud” before later allowing himself to be considered to be Trump’s Secretary of State.
Should he run for Senate in the future, it would mark the sixth time he has either run for office or seriously considered it.
Multiple Romney advisers told Politico that while a run remained unlikely, he was not yet prepared to close the door on it.
There is NO defense of the abominable Paris Accord, other than to fleece America, meaning us, the citizens and taxpayers.
Thank you very much President Donald Trump.
How anyone with a modicum of knowledge regarding the political history of the world can champion socialism, unless they believe they will be the one with the power, is beyond me. Socialism leaves nothing but human misery in it’s wake, and often it’s implementation. The apologists always seem to have an excuse why socialism didn’t work in a particular instance, they never can connect the dots and understand that socialism is simply a failed political ideology. I have been watching Venezuela for years with their dissent into chaos and blood shed. History repeats itself!
From lifezette.com by Kathryn Blackhurst updated 5/21/2017 entitled, “Media Yawn at Venezuela’s Spiraling, Socialist Nightmare“:
Study finds ABC, CBS, NBC barely cover left-wing catastrophe, avoid word ‘socialism’
Out of approximately 50,000 total evening news stories on ABC, CBS and NBC combined in the last four years, just 25 have covered the ongoing crisis in socialist Venezuela, according to a Media Research Center study published Tuesday.
After Venezuela’s former socialist president, Hugo Chávez, passed away in March 2013, the country has spiraled into economic disaster and civil chaos. So far in 2017, more than 50 Venezuelans have been killed during protests against current Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro and his socialist policies. Many Venezuelans are starving due to shortages of food and other essentials. The country’s inflation rate is set to surpass 700 percent and 25 percent of Venezuelans will be unemployed.
“The few times they have managed to cover the widespread poverty, starvation, and government oppression … they somehow find ways to do that without [saying] the word ‘socialism.’”
“Yet the Big Three evening newscasts have tried to pretend this crisis does not exist, offering virtually no coverage as the situation has deteriorated over the past four years,” MRC Research Analyst Mike Ciandella wrote.
“The networks have also been reluctant to attach the ‘socialist’ label to Venezuela’s government, and have utterly failed to criticize liberal politicians and celebrities who have praised the Chávez and Maduro regimes,” Ciandella added.
Indeed, out of the 50,000 total evening news stories on the three networks, just 25 covered Venezuela, and only seven mentioned “socialism.” In addition, NBC Nightly News only broadcast 13 stories spanning 16 minutes and 54 seconds, ABC’s World News only covered 8 minutes and 34 seconds over seven stories, and CBS Evening News only offered 3 minutes and 11 seconds over five stories.
“The network evening news programs seem allergic to reporting on the ongoing crisis in Venezuela,” Ciandella told LifeZette in an email. “Even worse, the few times they have managed to cover the widespread poverty, starvation and government oppression in that country, they somehow find ways to do that without mentioning the word ‘socialism.’”
Ciandella noted that the three networks aired no stories when Maduro took advantage of a countrywide power outage to stamp out as much opposition as he could in September 2013. When Maduro used the powers he gave himself to rule the country in a state of “emergency” that superseded the National Assembly’s voice, the media networks were silent.
After the anti-socialists elected a majority to the National Assembly in December 2015 and Maduro’s loyalist Supreme Court decided to strip the Assembly of its power on May 18, the media yawned.
On occasion, one of the three major news networks will drop a rare mention of the word “socialism” in connection with the Venezuela crisis in its coverage. As MRC noted, one of those exceptions was correspondent Jacob Rascon on April 20’s NBC Nightly News.
“The Venezuelan economy has been in freefall for years … protesters blamed President Nicolas Maduro and his socialist government,” Rascon said.
CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley offered another exception on May 4, when he said, “Running battles continue in Venezuela’s capital. They broke out a month ago when the socialist president tried to grab more power. At least 37 have been killed.”
But all too often, the media turn a blind eye to the atrocities and tragedies that fester in Venezuela, along with the root causes underlying them.
“In fact, ABC’s ‘World News Tonight’ hasn’t mentioned the words ‘socialism’ or ‘socialist’ in connection with Venezuela even once since Chávez’s death in 2013,” Ciandella told LifeZette. “This is completely inexcusable. The networks seem intent on distancing the socialism of the Chávez and Maduro regimes with the idealistic socialism of Bernie Sanders and liberal academia.”
The socialism that Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and many Hollywood celebrities champion appeals — in theory — to many U.S. college students and struggling young adults.
“I often say only half-jokingly to students on college campuses who are all in with Bernie Sanders that if they think socialism is such a wonderful economic model: How about a one-way ticket to Caracas?” Stephen Moore, an economic policy analyst and Distinguished Visiting Fellow at The Heritage Foundation, wrote of Venezuela’s capitol in a Washington Times op-ed published May 21.
“You’d be a fool to go there today. Venezuela is a human-rights crisis of epic proportions, with mass hunger, mass poverty, despair, ghetto upon ghetto, and a mass exodus of private businesses and anyone with money,” Moore added.
“The burgeoning resistance throws Molotov cocktails, rocks, and even human feces at the security forces during the nonstop rioting. ‘I don’t fear death because this life is crap,’ one protester told the WSJ,” Moore added. “It turns out that ‘share the wealth’ eventually means there is no wealth, and the egalitarian dream means everyone becomes equally poor. Venezuela is on its way to becoming the next North Korea.”
Steve Bannon is absolutely right. The way the media and Dems are besieging DT feels like a coup in progress. DT’s right, “Fight, fight, fight!” MAGA!
From breitbart.com by Penny Starr dated 5/18/2017 entitled, “GOP: Steve Bannon Is Right About The Fight To Save America“:
The Republican National Committee sent out a fund-raising email asking for assistance on President Donald Trump’s “Drain the Swamp” agenda.
The email notes the ongoing battle against a hostile press while offering words of wisdom from a top Trump adviser, Steve Bannon.
“You already knew the media is out to get us,” the email said. It continues:
But sadly it’s not just the fake news — there are people within our own unelected bureaucracy that want to sabotage President Trump and our entire America First movement.
Steve Bannon was right when he said, “If you think they’re going to give you your country back without a fight, you’re sadly mistaken.”
“Every day is going to be a fight,” Bannon said. “That is the promise of Donald Trump.”
The email points out that the people opposed to Trump and his policies do not want to put America first.
“They want it to be Special Interests first to enrich themselves all while the citizens of our country remain an afterthought,” the email said.
“We have no choice but to completely DRAIN THE SWAMP,” the email said, noting that Trump is “already started cleaning house.”
The email concludes: “But every day will be an uphill battle — and we need to be prepared to go into the trenches to FIGHT BACK.”
Hide illegals, hand out freebies, ignore/encourage drug abuse, and spend money like hell while calling non-lib protesters, “freeloaders”. I left CA for good in December 1995. Going through Moonbeam’s first governorship was painful enough. Jerry Brown, TURD.
From constitution.com dated 5/17/2017 by Onan Coca entitled, “California’s Governor calls Angry Taxpaying Citizens “Freeloaders”“:
A few days ago we told you that some of California’s voters had finally reached their breaking point and were fighting back against yet another massive tax increase in one of the nation’s most taxed states.
Californians are pushing back against the Democratic lawmakers who passed the largest gas tax in the state’s history last month.
Citizens have signed signatures for a recall effort against Democratic state Sen. Josh Newman for his vote in favor of for the Road Repair and Accountability Act, and another lawmaker is moving forward on an initiative to repeal the unpopular gas tax.
The law, passed April 6, imposes a 12 cents a gallon hike on citizens and raises the tax on diesel fuel by 20 cents a gallon. It also implements an additional charge to annual vehicle license fees ranging from $25 to $175 depending on the car’s value.
Democrats in the state legislature forced the measure along party lines.
Well, it seems that the actions of these TAXPAYING VOTERS has angered the tinpot dictator who leads California’s liberal fascist oligarchy. Sure, California’s citizens are ALREADY among the most tax-burdened in the nation. Sure, the poor dupes who live there pay 1/3 of their income to the federal government, and 1/3 of their income to the state government… but at least the government “let’s” them keep the last 1/3 of their money! Governor Brown wants to know just how much of their own money those greedy, hardworking, taxpayers think they deserve?
When asked about the effort of his citizens to unseat a few Democrats in an effort to keep them from ramming through these any more tax increases, Governor Brown began spouting more illogical and irrational commentary. He called the people footing the bill for all of his tax increases “freeloaders” and said that the Republicans wanted to force people to drive on “gravel roads” again.
“Roads require money to fix,” Brown said during a Friday visit to Orange County. “Republicans say there’s a magic source of money — it doesn’t exist. … You want to borrow money and pay double? Or do nothing? Or take money from universities?”
“The freeloaders — I’ve had enough of them,” Brown said, adding that the approved tax and fee hikes bring those charges to the level they were 30 years ago if adjusted for inflation. “They have a president that doesn’t tell the truth and they’re following suit.”
Except that the state GOP has offered a solution to the road funding issue:
Republicans says budget cuts should be made to fund road maintenance. A failed GOP plan proposed last year would have tapped into cap-and-trade money used to lower greenhouse gas emissions, cut Caltrans positions and eliminated other positions that have been vacant. It identifies other funding sources, but doesn’t specify what programs would be cut if that money was diverted to roads.
Brown said the plan is unrealistic.
The GOP plan was “unrealistic” because it used money the California government was already wasting on other ridiculous issues. More “realistic” simply take more of the money from the already heavily tax-burdened citizens of California.
Kira Davis perfectly sums up the incongruity of Brown’s “freeloader” commentary:
Let’s review this statement, in case you’re having trouble interpreting his meaning. If you work and pay taxes, if you struggle to pay your most basic bills while “owing” the California government a third of your paycheck (or more), Jerry Brown thinks you’re a freeloader.
The 1,000,000 citizens in Los Angeles county alone who collect food stamps provided by taxpayers are not freeloaders. The millions of illegal immigrants being harbored in California’s sanctuary cities to the cost of taxpayers are not freeloaders. Illegal immigrants being provided “free” legal help by the state on the backs of taxpayers are not freeloaders. The bloodsuckers in the Sacramento legislature who get paid $178 a day in per diem funds on top of their bloated salaries just for walking in the door to their job every day are not freeloaders.
No, you – the burdened, law-abiding taxpayer are the freeloader for simply asking the government of California be more fiscally responsible with the money they already have instead of stealing more of your money without your consent to pay for programs that are already funded but have been raided for pet projects and personal enrichment.
Governor Brown claims we’ll all be driving on gravel roads if we don’t give up our incomes at gunpoint as he is demanding.
Dear California Republican, why are you still living on the fascist West Coast?
Do yourselves a favor; pack up your belongings and move to Idaho, Texas, Arizona, Colorado, or Utah. Sure, the beaches may not be as nice but the living is far easier and the governments are far smaller.
Here is an excellent interview with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) re: all the politicization and BS around the firing of Comey, the invasive power that the ‘investigative’ community has in the U.S. (which we all knew was coming with the Patriot Act), and Obozocare ‘repeal’. Sen. Paul, one of the few usually sane voices in Congress, IMHO.
From foxnews.com dated 5/10/2017 entitled, “Paul: Dems Pushing a ‘Huge Myth’ About Trump Collusion With Russia“:
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said he’s seen no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, accusing Democrats of pushing a “huge myth.”
Paul said Democrats will now clamor for a special prosecutor to look into the matter following the firing of FBI Director James Comey.
“I don’t think there’s been any facts presented that anybody broke the law. … I don’t think there’s any evidence that anybody broke the law,” he said on “Fox & Friends” today.
Paul said he has not even heard an “accusation” on what crime Democrats believe may have been committed.
“[Democrats] were for getting rid of Comey too, but now they’re gonna say it’s all about this Russia investigation, which hasn’t produced one iota of evidence,” said Paul.
He said Comey’s firing “could not happen soon enough,” calling out Democrats for criticizing the move despite previously declaring they had lost faith in Comey after his handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
Communism is the ownership of land and production by the State (government). Communism is incompatible with the U.S. Constitution wherein the government is supposed to exist only to ensure the God given rights of the citizenry. Communism, as it has been practiced, always leads to oppressive dictatorships and misery wherein the citizenry have few rights. That said, I would posit that the majority of the current Democrats in the U.S. are Socialist, if not Communist by political dogma if not name. Guess California is just trying to make it official. California, the land of fruits, nuts, and commies in government. Good luck with that TURDs.
From sacbee.com dated 5/8/2017 by Sophia Bollag entitled, “California may end ban on communists in government jobs“:
Being a communist would no longer be a fireable offense for California government employees under a bill passed Monday by the state Assembly.
Lawmakers narrowly approved the bill to repeal part of a law enacted during the Red Scare of the 1940s and ’50s when fear that communists were trying to infiltrate and overthrow the U.S. government was rampant. The bill now goes to the Senate.
It would eliminate part of the law that allows public employees to be fired for being a member of the Communist Party.
Employees could still be fired for being members of organizations they know advocate for overthrowing the government by force or violence.
The bill updates an outdated provision in state law, said Assemblyman Rob Bonta, the San Francisco Bay Area Democrat who authored the measure.
Some Assembly Republicans said the Cold War-era law should not be changed.
Assemblyman Randy Voepel, a Southern California Republican who fought in the Vietnam War, said communists in North Korea and China are “still a threat.”
“This bill is blatantly offensive to all Californians,” said Assemblyman Travis Allen, a Republican who represents a coastal district in Southern California. “Communism stands for everything that the United States stands against.”
Speaking of blood sucking politicians. Pelosi is actually very representative of her constituents. What’s yours is theirs and what’s theirs is theirs…including your blood, sweat, and money. Can anyone say, “Marxist”, bat shit crazy, blood sucker? (No offense meant toward bats.)
From downtrend.com by Brian Anderson dated 5/3/2017 entitled, “Nancy Pelosi Says Letting People Keep Money They Earn Is Stealing“:
If you ever had any doubt that democrats consider your money theirs, Nancy Pelosi just erased that. According to her, if you are “allowed” to keep the money you earn, that’s really stealing from poor people who didn’t earn it. I know this is some dizzying liberal logic, but that’s how they like things. Their hope is to make things so confusing that you can’t tell how bullshit it all is.
The House Republicans are once again trying for an ObamaCare repeal and replace. This newest version would put $130 billion in a high risk pool over 10 years to cover poor people with existing conditions. In addition to that, another $8 billion over 5 years was tacked on to help out people who can’t afford health insurance.
Because Nancy Pelosi can’t math and hates everything that isn’t from her own party, she flipped her lid according to The Hill.
“What you would need is probably about $200 billion over 10 years. What they’ve done is $8 billion over five years. If you divide that by the number of people who have a pre-existing medical condition, you get about [$200 or $300] a year,” said Pelosi.
First off, not everyone with a pre-existing condition can’t afford health insurance, and secondly the GOP is offering up $146 billion over 10 years, which isn’t that far away from the randomly stated $200 billion Pelosi claims is needed.
Despite that, she predicts death and destruction:
“It’s a joke. It’s a very sad, deadly joke,” she said.
Now here’s where the House Minority Leader says it is a crime for you to keep your own money. She says the Republicans want to rush through an ObamaCare repeal because they need the money to offer a tax break.
“They’re in a hurry because they need this money to give a tax break to the wealthiest people in our country. This bill will have the biggest transfer of wealth in the history of our country — Robin Hood in reverse. That is the goal of their tax bill, but they need this money from your healthcare in order to do that,” Pelosi said.
Stay with me on this one Nancy: ObamaCare raised taxes and caused most working people to spend more money on shittier coverage. Repealing this ridiculous law means that working people will be able to keep more of their money. Also, offering a tax break means that working people will be able to keep even more of that money that they earn.
Poor people are not entitled to the fruits of other people’s labor. Letting people keep more of the money they earn is not stealing from poor people because that money was never theirs in the first place. See how that works?
Stealing and redistribution of wealth would be if the government passed a law that forced people to by a product from a private company at inflated prices so that same product could then be given for free to lazy people who have made shitty life choices. You know, kind of like ObamaCare.
I understand Pelosi’s confusion here, she is after all a democrat. In their warped way of thinking, every dollar you earn belongs to them so they can make it rain on the poor in the least efficient and productive way possible.
According to Real Clear Politics, based on seven different polling agencies, the Congressional approval rating has not been above 20% since late 2011 through 2016. The average Congressional approval rating has been 18.9% since 2009. During that same period the disapproval rating has averaged 68.6%. Let that sink in, voters approve of their U.S. elected officials less than 20% of the time.
Yet, incumbents (the TURDs you already elected that are screwing you) have had a 96 percent re-election rate. In fact, in 2016, 97 percent of the House members and 93 percent of the senators were re-elected to continue their screwing the U.S. public/voters, voting for unsustainable spending thus eventual financial collapse of the U.S., involving us in endless wars and circumventing/disregarding our Constitution.
What the HELL is wrong with you TURDs?!
