The Perfidious Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney has made it clear he is running to be the leader of the #NeverTrump resistance, not to be Utah’s junior Senator. So, being nice to Kim Jong Un has a better chance of getting him to abandon his nuclear weapons than being nice to Mitt Romney has of getting him to support Trump.

#NeverMitt Utah GOP Senate Primary Is Tomorrow Vote Dr. Mike Kennedy

Even though Dr. Mike Kennedy beat Romney 51 – 49 at the Republican State Convention, due to Utah’s arcane nomination process, the statewide run-off decides the nominee. Romney is spending millions of dollars to buy his way into the U.S. Senate, so he can be the establishment’s Senate “COUNTERWEIGHT” to President Trump’s America First agenda.

#NeverMitt Wins Round One Of Utah Senate Race

Mitt Romney came in second in Saturday's Utah Republican Convention because he’s weak on gun rights, he’s aloof and won’t answer questions, he won’t stand up for the Constitution said supporters of conservative candidate state Rep. Michael Kennedy. Dr. Kennedy beat Romney 51 percent to 49 percent forcing a primary under Utah's arcane nomination procedure.

The Art Of The Trump Trade Deal

Stephen Moore, Investor's Business Daily

The status quo on trade with China is untenable. Trump can't back down here. He's where Ronald Reagan was at the start of his presidency, when the air traffic controllers called his bluff and walked off the job. The Gipper took an action that rocked the world: He fired them. If this plays out the way we all hope, Trump may score the biggest victory for freer and fairer trade practices in American history. If China doesn't back down, things could get ugly.

Americans should applaud Trump for starting to end our nation's wholesale surrender on trade

Scott Paul, Fox News

Instead of attacking the president, the critics should instead show us their own plans to stop the economic bleeding in America’s industrial belt. Because too often, it’s all about President Trump. He’s regularly accused of looking to the past when he speaks of industry, and specifically of steel. But the people in our steel mill towns know their communities won’t ever again look like they did in the 1950s. That’s not what they’re asking for; they’re simply asking to be included in America’s future.

The Better Voters Know Mitt Romney The Less They Like Him #NeverMitt

It is clear to us that Mitt Romney isn’t running for the Senate to represent the hard-pressed working families of Utah – he’s running to be the anti-Donald Trump. We urge our friends in the Beehive State to get to know the real Mitt Romney before the Utah Republican Convention and to find an alternative candidate more in keeping with the Make America Great Again agenda they voted for in 2016.

#NeverMitt – Romney’s Shameful Record of Lies and Flip-Flops

John McCain’s 2008 opposition research file on Mitt Romney – all 200 pages of it – ended-up on the internet.  God bless whoever posted it, because it makes truly compelling reading and it shows conclusively that Mitt Romney’s greatest talent as a candidate is his ability to keep every hair in place while not telling the truth.

#NeverMitt – Mitt’s American Values

Considering his record on “values” Mitt Romney arrogantly setting himself up as the arbiter of “American values” leaves us stuck someplace between amusement and disgust, so we thought in our second #NeverMitt article we should look at the real Mitt Romney, and his record on one of America's foundational values.

Counterpoint: China's 27-Year Undeclared War on the U.S.

In 1991 Chinese Communist leaders declared, "The new Cold War between China and America has begun.” China has been at war with us ever since.  And when your enemy says you are at war, then you are at war, whether you want to be or not.

How to Deal with Newly Empowered Xi Jinping

Politically, Washington should treat the PRC as a serious competitor. Depending on the issue, China may be adversary or friend. The U.S. should emphasize areas where the two nations’ interests coincide and look for compromises where interests diverge. Washington cannot dictate: negotiation over contested issues is inevitable.

#NeverMitt

We don’t know if Utah’s forgotten men and women know much about the real Mitt Romney – the vulture capitalist who likes firing people, who opposes economic nationalism and thinks the job killing Trans Pacific Partnership would have been good for America, so here is the first in our series outing the real Mitt Romney.

Why no one is talking about Trump’s game-changing deal

Salena Zito, New York Post

Donald Trump heralded his success last year when he brought jobs back to the Carrier plant in Indianapolis even before he was president and tweeted out his victory, leading to blanket media coverage. This time, he failed to celebrate a win and the news was happily ignored. Trump needs to remember that his megaphone isn’t just for the haters, but for the voters who are desperate to finally see real change.

Coming home from an Asian tutorial

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

The rest of the world, accustomed to American presidents with a thicker patina of diplomatic manners, is getting used to the Donald’s brash and undiplomatic ways, and they might as well learn to regard them as entertainment. President Trump may be taking the sage advice of the philosopher Yogi Berra, who famously observed that “you can see a lot by watching.” The president has looked at America’s trade agreements and sees what everybody can see by watching. It’s not a pretty sight.

Conservatives Come Out Against Ryan’s Border Adjustment Tax

We agree with our conservative friends David McIntosh, Rep. Mark Meadows and Tim Phillips; it’s time to focus on putting together a pro-growth tax reform bill that can pass.

Time for trade talks with Britain

Editors, Washington Examiner

Trump has spent enough time in business to realize that commerce and trade aren't zero-sum games. All parties can gain from free and open trade, and eventually, Trump should pursue bilateral agreements with the rest of the world. Beginning with Britain is a good start.

The Audacity of Trump

Robert W. Merry, The American Conservative

In the end, it’s all about performance. In delivering a speech that emanated directly from his campaign, Trump chose to speak almost exclusively to those who voted for him and placed him upon that inaugural platform. But he can’t govern that way. Ultimately he will have to expand his base if he wants to govern beyond his current allotted four years. Campaigning is fun; governing is a fearsome challenge.

The Moral Case For Trump's "America First" Agenda

Memo to the rest of the planet: Stop panicking over the victory of Donald Trump.  His “America First” agenda is not about abandoning the free world.  If anything, it is about saving the free world—from itself.

In Defense of Steve Bannon and Relevant Conservatism

Driving Steve Bannon from public life is the endgame of the Left, and some in the Republican establishment, because he’s made conservatism again relevant to the concerns of working America, exposed the lies and smug elitism of the ruling class and in the process built a winning coalition to strip them of power.

How the Elites Blew Up the World

Laura Ingraham, Lifezette

Four years from now, if Hillary is president, the United States will be weaker, China will be stronger, Russia will be more dangerous, terrorists will be more emboldened, the Middle East will be more unstable, and conditions in Europe will be worse than they are now. We already know that our current policies lead to these results. Why would we want to let things worsen for four more years?
