Traitor Mitt Romney Again Signals He’s with the Democrats on Impeachment

GOP traitor, Sen. Mitt Romney, signaled that he is leaning toward voting with Democrats on the question of hearing from more fake “witnesses.”

Published

GOP traitor, Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, has signaled that he is leaning toward voting with the Democrats over the question of hearing from more fake “witnesses” during the Senate’s impeachment proceedings.

The carpetbagging “Utah” Senator — who is really from left-wing Massachusetts, but only bought his Senate seat in Utah — recently said that he will likely turn against  his Republican colleagues and the president and vote in favor of allowing more fake Democrat “witnesses” in the impeachment trial continuing this coming week.

The traitor made his position known in a Saturday interview:

“I think it’s very likely I’ll be in favor of witnesses, but I haven’t made a decision finally yet, and I won’t until the testimony is completed,” Romney said.

Romney is one of the main Republicans that the anti-American Democrats hope to peel away from the right side of history. And, traitor that he is, they will likely succeed.

The carpetbagging Sen., though, must sense that he is beginning to lose support back home. Last week the former liberal Massachusetts Gov. tried to backtrack a few steps from his outright support for Democrats in their quest to topple a Republican president and take away the choice of millions of American voters.

After his repeated anti-Trump statements, Utah “Republican” Senator Mitt Romney tried to back away from his outright support for impeachment on Tuesday.

Democrats were likely expecting Romney to come out swinging against Trump as the U.S. Senate begins its part of the impeachment drama this week. Instead, Romney took a few steps backward from his previous anti-Trump support for impeachment.

Romney’s reaction to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s outline for the Senate’s proceedings struck a slightly different tone than his previous comments.

As Daily Wire reported:

While Democrats are taking to various media platforms to express outrage over the Republicans’ plans for handling the trial, accusing McConnell of attempting to “cover up” the president’s alleged misconduct by fast-tracking the proceedings, Romney pointed out in a statement issued ahead of the debate Tuesday that the rules set forth by his colleagues “align closely” with those established for the impeachment trial of then-President Bill Clinton, rules which were unanimously approved by the Senate.

Meanwhile, Romney’s Democrat pals railed over McConnell’s plans. Sen. Schumer, for instance, absurdly exclaimed: “We are staring down an erosion of the sacred democratic principles for which our founders fought a bloody war of independence.”

Romney, though, did not exactly support the Democrat line. Though agreeing with the left that the allegations against Trump are “extremely serious,” Romney added that he thinks the Senate should “put political biases aside” and hear the case in “good faith.”

“The allegations outlined in the articles of impeachment passed by the House are extremely serious — did the President abuse his office for personal political gain, and did he obstruct Congress’ investigation by blocking subpoenas?” Romney said in the statement. “These allegations demand that the Senate put political biases aside, and make good faith efforts to listen to arguments from both sides and thoroughly review facts and evidence. I have made clear to my colleagues and the public that the Senate should have the opportunity to decide on witnesses following the opening arguments, as occurred in the Clinton trial. The organizing resolution released tonight includes this step, and overall, it aligns closely with the rules package approved 100-0 during the Clinton trial. If attempts are made to vote on witnesses prior to opening arguments, I would oppose those efforts.”

Romney later pushed out a press release slamming Democrats:

As we approach the impeachment trial of the President, I feel a deep sense of responsibility to the Constitution, to the people of Utah and to the nation. I want to share my thoughts directly with Utahns — the people I was elected to serve in the Senate — about how I plan to approach this process.

Last week, I and all senators swore an oath to ‘do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws: so help me God’ in determining whether the president has committed impeachable offenses that merit his removal from office. Deciding whether or not a sitting president should be removed from office is perhaps the most solemn matter that can ever come before the United States Senate. I enter this task with an open mind and a recognition of my solemn responsibility to fulfill my oath.

The allegations outlined in the articles of impeachment passed by the House are extremely serious — did the President abuse his office for personal political gain, and did he obstruct Congress’ investigation by blocking subpoenas? These allegations demand that the Senate put political biases aside, and make good faith efforts to listen to arguments from both sides and thoroughly review facts and evidence. I have made clear to my colleagues and the public that the Senate should have the opportunity to decide on witnesses following the opening arguments, as occurred in the Clinton trial. The organizing resolution released tonight includes this step, and overall, it aligns closely with the rules package approved 100-0 during the Clinton trial. If attempts are made to vote on witnesses prior to opening arguments, I would oppose those efforts.

I will conclude by noting that this is not a situation anyone would wish upon our country. It is difficult, divisive, and further inflames partisan entrenchment. There is inevitable political pressure from all sides. I have spent — and will continue to spend — many hours in careful deliberation about what this process and its potential outcomes could mean for our country. The best we in the Senate can do is strive to meet the obligations outlined by our founding fathers — to honor our constitutional duty and fulfill our oath to do impartial justice. That is the commitment I make solemnly and in good faith to the people of Utah and our nation.

So, why has Romney suddenly started pulling back a bit from his extreme hate for Trump?

His poll numbers are tanking, of course.

According to KSL.com:

There was an 8% drop in his approval rating among Republicans in the most recent Mitt Romney polls. It went from 65% in the third quarter to 57% in the last quarter.

But support among Democrats went up from 42 to 46% over the same time for the Utah Republican.

And so… suddenly Romney is looking a bit more like a Republican to regain support.

Virginia Gov. Ralph KKK Northam Makes Attending Church Service a Crime

As Virginia continues its response to the coronavirus, Gov. Ralph Northam has made it a crime for people to attend church.

Published

on

As Virginia continues its response to the coronavirus, Gov. Ralph Northam has made it a crime for people to attend church.

The governor now so infamous for appearing in a Klan hood in a college photo, issued an autocratic executive order to ban people from attending church in groups larger than ten worshipers.

You read that right. KKK Northam has made it a crime for “too many” people to attend church.

Northam’s order concerns such gatherings in two sections, according to CNSNews.

Paragraph 1 says: “Therefore, by virtue of the authority vested in me by Article V, Section 7 of the Constitution of Virginia, by § 44-146.17 of the Code of Virginia and in furtherance of Executive Order 51, I order the following: 1. Effective 11:59 p.m., Tuesday, March 24, 2020 until 11:59 p.m., Thursday, April 23, 2020, all public and private in person gatherings of 10 or more individuals are prohibited.”

The second relevant section of the order says: “Violation of paragraphs 1, 3, 4, and 6 of this Order shall be a Class 1 misdemeanor pursuant to § 44-146.17 of the Code of Virginia.”

The order adds, “Executive orders, to include those declaring a state of emergency and directing evacuation, shall have the force and effect of law and the violation thereof shall be punishable as a Class 1 misdemeanor in every case where the executive order declares that its violation shall have such force and effect.”

Granted the executive order does not specifically mention churches. But the inference is clear that a church service would qualify as an illegal gathering.

After all, how many church services have you been to that have less than ten worshipers?

Still, Northam’s government did put out another info sheet telling Virginians to “seek alternative means of attending religious services, such as virtually or via ‘drive-through’ worship. Places of worship that do conduct in-person services must limit gatherings to 10 people, to comply with the statewide 10-person ban.”

The website info is incontrovertible proof that the Executive Order bans church services.

So, what would the penalty be for daring to go to church?

The Code of Virginia spells out the punishment in § 18.2-11. It says: “The authorized punishments for conviction of a misdemeanor are: (a) For Class 1 misdemeanors, confinement in jail for not more than twelve months and a fine of not more than $2,500, either or both.”

Is this what we want governments doing? Especially in the very state that led the nation in implementing religious freedom?

Northam took a wave of criticism early in 2019 after a photo showing him wearing a Klan hood in college went viral.

In February of last year, an avalanche of information that depicted Northam as a long-time racist came out, including that his college nickname was “Coonman.” But the photo that appeared on a page of the governor’s med school yearbook was the most damning. It depicts a student in blackface standing next to a student dressed in the white robe and pointy hood of the Ku Klux Klan.

On Friday evening, Northam apologized for the photo and even confirmed that he was one of the two figures in the photo — though he refused to say if he was the student in blackface or the one in the KKK hood.

Still, many think he is the one in the Klan hood.

BOOM: Right to His Face, Media Corrects Joe Biden’s Lie that Trump’s Approval Rating Fell

On Wednesday, Joe Biden held another one of his disastrous coronavirus briefings where even the media felt the need to correct his false claims.

Published

On Wednesday, Joe Biden held another one of his disastrous coronavirus briefings where even the media felt the need to correct his false claims. And, amazingly enough, they did so right to his face!

The Democrat presidential candidate was desperately trying to elbow Trump out of the spotlight over the government’s coronavirus response when the made a false claim about Trump’s approval ratings.

Speaking to reporters, Biden said Trump’s approval rating continues to fall, even during this crisis.

“So it’s all about urgency, and I noticed that the president’s numbers in the public have gone up and handling this crisis, but they haven’t gone up in terms of his presidency,” Biden said during his sham briefing.

But the second half of that proclamation is untrue. And Associated Press reporter Alexandra Jaffe even fact-checked Biden right to his face.

“Gallup did show he is now at 49 percent job approval, which is a reversal from a few weeks ago,” Jaffe told Biden.

“So it’s just an interesting development,” she added, “it does suggest that the American people see him as a stronger leader than you’ve been characterizing him.”

Biden was momentarily shocked that a left-wing reporter dared to correct him live like that.

The former vice president then stumbled around saying, “Well I hope that he’s so strong that he’s up way above that, because we need the help now.”

Biden slammed Trump for not doing enough during the virus response, but then strangely added that he doesn’t want to criticize the president during this time of national crisis even though he just did that a split second earlier.

Anyway, it was a rare time when the media actually fact-checked a Democrat like that.

L.A.’s Despotic Democrat Mayor Threatens to Turn off Power and Water to Quarantine Scoffers

The mayor of Los Angeles has not gone full authoritarian and has threatened to turn off the power and water to anyone he thinks has violated his quarantine orders.

Published

on

The fascist mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti, has not gone full authoritarian and has threatened to turn off the power and water to anyone he thinks has violated his quarantine orders.

On Tuesday, the mayor told the media that he intended to punish anyone who violated his “safe at home” order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, according to KTLA TV.

“If we see continued noncompliance, they’ll wind up facing misdemeanor charge, and [the Department of Water and Power] will step in and shut off their water and power,” Garcetti bellowed. “You know who you are, you need to stop it. This is your chance to step up and shut it down — because if you don’t, we will shut you down.”

Garcetti added that business who refused to obey his unconstitutional orders are “irresponsible and selfish,” as he unveiled the city’s “business ambassadors program,” designed to convince nonessential businesses to close their doors.

The mayor also said that he was set to unleash city prosecutors to punish violators of his orders.

“The easiest way to avoid a visit is to follow the rules,” the Democrat growled.

Garcetti added that the peak virulence of the virus is not yet passed, saying, “The peak is not here yet. It will be bad.”

“We need to be prepared for some of the darkness that is ahead,” Garcetti added ominously. “Each one of us can be a light. We can light a match of hope. We can navigate that tunnel with each other and not alone. And more importantly, what we do can ensure that more people exit that tunnel together … and that our city will rise again.”

Still, Garcetti did say that he would “allow” restaurants and bars to deliver alcohol to “stimulate” businesses that are otherwise experiencing crippling loss during this viral outbreak.

Sen. Bernie Sanders Threatens Republicans: He Might ‘Put A Hold’ To Senate Coronavirus Package

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders threatens to hold up coronavirus bill after 4 GOP senators push to cut unemployment aid

“Unless Republican Senators drop their objections to the coronavirus legislation, I am prepared to put a hold on this bill until stronger conditions are imposed on the $500 billion corporate welfare fund,” Sanders said in a statement on Twitter.

TDC:

Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders and 2020 presidential candidate on Wednesday threatened that he will put a hold to the Senate coronavirus package unless there are stronger sanctions on a $500 billion corporate welfare fund.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell confirmed early Wednesday morning that a bipartisan deal for a nearly $2 trillion emergency relief package to address the coronavirus pandemic had been reached. He said the deal “will get more equipment to the heroes on the front lines” and that “this is a wartime level of investment.” McConnell also added that “this has been a long week for the Senate,” and that the Senate is “going to pass this legislation later today.”

The text is set to come out later Wednesday. North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows was on Capitol Hill late, telling reporters the deal will happen “very very soon,” and it did. More

Bernie Sanders doesn’t care about America or it’s citizens. He’s so steeped in his own warped ideological politics he’d let the entire country implode just to get his way!

The coronavirus will cause its damage and then recede; the economy will take a huge hit and then recover. And when it’s all over, the Democrats will still have a man with senility as their presidential candidate. That’s why they are so desperate to use every lie they can to blame President Trump.

Biden: Coronavirus Crisis Provides An “Opportunity” To Push Green New Deal

Published

on

2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said that the coronavirus crisis provides an “opportunity” to push the Green New Deal, during a virtual briefing on the coronavirus today.

“We’re going to have an opportunity, I believe, in the next round [of economic aid] here to use…my Green Deal to be able to generate both economic growth as consistent with the kind of infusion of monies we need into the system to keep it going.”

“We’re going to need new infrastructure going down the road here, and it’s a way to generate economic growth. That’s going to be, I think, the next round we have to be looking at.”

President Trump criticized Nancy Pelosi and congressional Democrats for the attempt to add the legislation: “Nancy Pelosi came and put a lot of things in the deal that had nothing to do with workers — that had to do with an agenda that they have been trying to get passed for 10 years,” Trump said during a Fox News virtual town hall. “[The Democrats said] ‘We want green energy, let’s stop drilling oil’ — they had things in there that were terrible…Windmills all over the place and all sorts of credits for windmills — they kill the birds and ruin the real estate. A lot of problems.”

Nancy Pelosi’s Coronavirus Bill Stuffed with Waste, Mentioned ‘Diversity’ 32 Times

Democrat Speaker Nancy Pelosi stuffed her coronavirus bill full of wasteful, left-wing garbage while mentioning “diversity” an absurd 32 times.

Published

on

Democrat Speaker Nancy Pelosi was not one to let this crisis go to waste and so stuffed her coronavirus bill full of wasteful, left-wing garbage while mentioning “diversity” an absurd 32 times.

What does “diversity” have to do with dealing with the coronavirus? Nothing. Then again, “diversity” is little else but a sop to the extreme left and is meaningless in every case, so…

Still, this BS proves that Democrats really don’t care about this country at all. Not even a tiny bit.

Per the Washington Free Beacon:

The Pelosi bill focuses on “diversity,” for example, more than one might expect from an emergency economic relief package. The plan includes a section on “Improving Corporate Governance Through Diversity” that aims to “ensure that corporate boards reflect the diversity and perspectives of the communities and consumers impacted by the hardships due to the coronavirus disease.” The word “inclusion” appears 14 times in the text of the bill.

One section of the House Democratic bill, titled “Diversity Report,” would establish a congressional oversight panel requiring any corporation that receives federal aid related to coronavirus to provide “diversity data” to congress. The panel would publish a report on its findings the following year.

Uh… what does forcing corporations to toe the left’s fake “diversity” line in hiring have to do with responding to a pandemic?

Nuthin.

But the foolishness goes on:

The “Diversity Report” section also requires companies to compare the salaries of employees based on gender and race and furnish information on the “number of staff and budget dedicated to diversity and inclusion initiatives.”

Furthermore, the House bill states that all corporations receiving federal aid “must maintain officials and budget dedicated to diversity and inclusion initiatives for no less than 5 years after disbursement of funds.”

It’s all just another example of the truism that if there is a crisis, you DO NOT want Democrats in charge of anything.
