It could have been Romneyism, dumbass


Via Collin Rugg, Mitt Romney whined to CNN, "I don't think Trumpism is going away."

Why would any intelligent person believe otherwise? In 4 short years, President Donald John Trump has done everything Republicans promised to do for decades.

He cut taxes, he cut regulations, he brought jobs back to America, and he got illegal aliens to self-deport.

That is only the short-list off the top of my head of his many, many, many accomplishments.

Now, hoping Xiden (as a reader called him) becomes president, Mittens nevertheless is appalled that Donald Trump will remain leader of the Republican Party.

He told Dana Bash of CNN, "Well, I think President Trump will continue to have substantial influence on the party, and I think if you look at the people who are rumored to be thinking of running in 2024, besides the president, those are people who are trying to appeal to kind of a populist approach, so I don’t think Trumpism is going away."

Republicans do not want President Trump to go away because Donald Trump was a highly successful president who dropped unemployment to 3.5% and got two or three vaccines to the people in less than eight months under his Operation Warp Speed.

So what is Romney's problem with what he calls Trumpism?

It could have been Romneyism.

In fact, most supporters of Donald Trump voted for Mittens in 2012. We weren't particularly choosy then or in 2016. We only wanted someone who would fight for us and do our bidding once elected.

There was plenty of fight in Donald Trump.

But Romney would not even fight for himself. He let Harry Reid shove him around with an outrageous lie that he had not paid his taxes.

Romney let Candy Crowley lie about him to his face and to 100 million people.

Nobody shoves Donald Trump around. No one. He has taken on the entire capital. He has shown the Supreme Court for the cowards they are. Sadly, all 3 justices he appointed betrayed America and the Constitution in voting against hearing the Texas case.

If the Republic is to survive, it needs a strong Republican Party -- not a Romneyed one.

We tried that.

We lost.

We tried Trumpism. We won, and it worked -- even with all of Washington opposing it.

    3. Hopefully they seen what we can't see, and in the very short end of all this, it will be unnecessary for them to be involved. Whereas after President Trump is sworn in for a second term The Court's ruling on issues such as Roe vs. Wade may be necessary and why have that hanging over their heads coming from a Court that Automatically just favors Trump. So if they could see the President did not need this case to win, then why do it? Now they can’t be labeled as “Trump’s Court” Whereas we are alive now and can see this. But think of all those babies who are not alive and because of abortion many thousands will never hear anything. I think at least part of the Court can see this. Maybe we should also see and have hope. Pray for Our Nation and BELIEVE

  2. Don, I do not believe it can be assumed that the three Trump appointees betrayed anyone. Before the case was decided, I commented somewhere that whatever the Court did had to be unanimous a la Brown v Board of Education. It is the job of the chief to obtain unanimity. So I understand what happened as either: John Benedict Arnold Roberts being too weak to force a unanimous decision in favor of the Constitution or unwilling to do so and bowing to the wise Latina, the Harvard Dean, and the other useless idiot.

    What Roberts fails to understand is that he has wounded the Court in a way that will reverberate for years to come.

    4. I disagree MKBAR. The Supreme Court certainly does NOT have to be unanimous. And in this age of partisanship in our courts you'll never get a Kagen or Sotamier to go along with something to hurt dems; especially overturning an election. 5-4 is all that's needed to right this wrong.

    5. Roberts doesn't care if he has ruined the court. He doesn't care that he has a laughable legacy. All he cares about is keeping his blackmailer from releasing whatever despicable behavior they have on him that they are holding over his head. They won't let him resign because he is now a dedicated leftist vote. It must be pretty bad. Too bad he can't Arkancide himself to get out of it, but since it is obvious he is coward, that too, would be out of the question

  6. Quite right. But now the uniparty, big tech and China will conspire to ensure that Trumpism never wins another election, despite the vote count. They got away with it, the courts won't even hear the evidence, so there is no (non-violent) recourse left for us. And things will have to get much worse before there is a consensus to take up arms. If the leftists can control themselves enough to just keep slowly boiling the frog, (a big IF) they will get away with it for a long time.

    Excerpt:
    This is what I see happening.
    The American public has come to accept all the components of totalitarian states.
    - We have come to accept a militarized police.
    - We have come to accept ideological indoctrination in schools.
    - We have come to accept mass surveillance.
    - We have come to accept speech codes.
    - We have come to accept the rewriting of history to serve the interests of the ruling party.
    - We have come to accept the tarring of political dissidents as “terrorists”, “extremists”, and “White Supremacists.”
    - We have come to accept the State telling us when and where we can meet.
    - We have come to accept the State shutting down our places of worship.
    - We have come to accept the idea that parents should have no special authority over their children.
    - We have come to accept the manipulation of thought through the manipulation of language.
    - We have come to accept the radical reordering of society by government in the name of crisis.

    2. I tend to look at what is happening around us, as the last, desperate shot taken by the globalist cabal, with the aid of the CCP, and our Uniparty, because they feared what Trump could do after 2016, then saw what Trump did during his first term, so they had no other choice. Now, they are ruined, as their plan is being exposed. They will have no more credibility, as no one likes a loser.

      Delete
    3. I agree with this, FLOlson, 3:17 pm comment above. We are being too intimidated by the Left. Trump IS an "extinction level" event to the long crafted Marxist coup, and to the CCP. They both are on the brink; if they don't suceed in pushing out Trump, both are going to bite the dust. The American Marxists' deceptions can no longer be sustained, and the CCP's built-on-sand economy is becoming a house of cards. One more term of Trump will expose and bury them both; heck, the real election results already did write their obituary.

      It isn't actually up to the Left to determine how this election is going to be resolved, they are just holding their breath, hoping we will lay down and accept it. It's actually up to us-- will we be hypnotized by the INCESSANT "NARRATIVE" into yielding, or will we turn aggressively on them with a decisive destruction of their narrative. I think Trump needs to see us ready to FIGHT HARD AND CLEAR. We could use some focusing though, as to how specifically we can best help. And Trump needs to take over the media outlets first, in order to have access to communicate directly with the American people.

      For the rest of us, one thing we can do is be VISIBLY and unapologetically talking to democrats who are uninformed and educating them, which will undercut democrat's resistance to Trump's Insurrection Act moves. Too much, we just talk to each other, which doesn't move the needle at all in the overall population. Like with many of you, I also have seemingly hit a wall with my own family--preserving the relationship DOES matter, and they are mostly closed to my overtures. (Although leavening IS going on, and I am very optimistic for the long term.) But for now, maybe better if "I talk to your family, and you talk to mine", because we can work with less psychological restraint on OTHER peoples families, cuz the threat of cut-off relationships is not present.

      I have also found that when I have prayed about honoring good democrat's essential spiritual goodness, and loved them thru their surface ignorance, that I find democrats spontaneously coming to me-- people I never met before, who are honestly open to listening. One time, after praying, I was moving some Trump signs from my car to a friends, and a reporter from a European country saw the signs and approached us, and asked if he could talk with us about Trump. He was a liberal, but he sincerely listened for 45 minutes, and my friend saw his later article and said it was fairly good. Another time after prayer, a young man making calls on behalf of a democratic candidate seemed surprised by some of my comments, and asked questions. We got into quite a conversation and he seemed to really be hearing me. Then a few days later he contacted me again and we talked some more. I am convinced this happened because I had honest love in my heart for him and respect for his underlying true intelligence from his Creator, God. Another person I encountered had the stamina and interest to tolerate our political discussion for 2-1/2 hours, and WAS sincerely listening. This is the type of communication that can start turning people around, and there are 80 million of us who can do it. If we just approach this with anger and disdain, though, that's not going to move the needle.

      FLOlson, you are right that this is a last gasp for the Communist Left. The outcome is actually up to us, not them-- to whether we give up or not.

    6. No need for an apology, TPG, none at all. The quality of thought is what counts.

      However, if I were you, I'd break the "big-block" presentation (above) into short, digestible paragraphs.

      Reading something on a computer screen is 180* different from reading the same thing in a published book, where authors can occasionally get away with lengthy segments of writing.

      Only one readable that I know of consistently succeeded with an "endless style" (Lucius Beebe, "The Big Spenders").

      Computer screen reading requires healthy doses of blank spaces that ease the inevitable eyestrain created by the unyielding mechanical format.

      Recommended: No paragraph should run longer than four-six lines each.

      Confronted with the above, most people, regardless of whether they agree or disagree, will simply go to the next item or bow out altogether.

  12. "We tried Trumpism. We won, and it worked -- even with all of Washington opposing it."

    With respect, the jury is still out on this. It's quite possible that 2018 was the Last Hurrah for the Republic and it's been all downhill every since: bogus impeachment in January, plandemic in February until now, unconstitutional lockdowns, oligarchs and others stealing an election with the courts and legislatures unwilling to correct it, and although hope springs eternal - especially for those in the War Room - thus far the trajectory of decline continues unabated. Indeed, the Republic - which hasn't really been one in quite some time - is in danger of officially disappearing any time now.

    What Trump has done is show that
    a) the system as is is unbelievably corrupt from top to bottom. This is a great gift, but not yet a solution.
    b) America still has huge potential: the few substantive changes he did manage to do made a real difference. Think what could be done with the Giant Squid sucking the life force out of the body Politic, without Social Media Oligarch controls, without IC controlling 90% of consumed print and visual media?

    So he has shown that corruption is a real and present danger to a significant percentage of the population that heretofore were unaware. But he has not yet demonstrated the ability to 'drain the swamp.'

    Maybe a huge denouement is just around the corner. That is my hope, for sure. But as yet, it hasn't happened. As yet the coupsters all walk free and perform on TV and have lucrative book and TV deals. As yet the legislative and judicidary are largely useless. As yet the Republic is on life support - if that.

    Trump has been a miraculous Red Pill.
    But only Chapter One, not a full volume.

      Elections are binary decisions. Third party 'protest votes' are simply abdications. I voted for Romney because of the (R) behind his name. What does the (R) stand for? In his case to keep the (D) out of office.

      There is no perfect candidate. For the most part, there aren't even that many good ones. The best you can do is try to steer the ship of state off the rocks which sometimes is reduced to picking the lessor of two evils.

  14. I have contributed so much more money to Donald Trump and his campaigns than I have ever contributed in my entire life to the GOP or any of its candidates…and I expect them to go to bat for our POTUS is his (and our) time of need. If not, and if worse comes to worst, here’s the deal: I will beg Donald Trump to set up his own PAC and it will be the only place that will receive my future contributions to politicians or political causes…whatever he does with it and whomever he supports with my meager funding is OK with me. And, should he decide to run again in 2024, I’ll be there for him in spades (dependent, of course, on the Good Lord allowing the blessings of such longevity on this poor soul, but I digress)

    AND the next time I receive a request from the GOP or one of their candidates for a contribution, I will write the following on the pledge form: “Dear GOP, thanks for reminding me to contribute. I am sending a check for $500 to Donald Trump’s PAC and you can ask him for funding to support your operations or campaign!” I will then stuff this pledge form into the postage-paid envelope they so conveniently provided and mail it back to them tout de suite! Might even mix a little profanity into message…

  15. I don't think Trump running again in 2024 is a good idea, as much as we appreciate what he did in his four years and how his re-election was stolen from him.

    Revenge candidacies hardly ever work, and in his case there's a not insignificant probability that he won't be around to try it (and an even greater probability that his opponent would be someone other than Xiden).

    The best thing he can do for America and for the GOP is to anoint a successor to carry the torch--the sooner the better in order to unite the party behind that candidate.

  16. Zippy stole '12 just as surely as Dr Evil tried to steal this one.

    That's the tragedy. His last years were the worst.

    Sadly, all 3 justices he appointed betrayed America and the Constitution in voting against hearing the Texas case.

    Volokh, which I don't entirely trust, said the TX case wasn't a good one. Not being a legal scholar, I don't know. The Constitution says the entire Federal bench is there to settle disputes between states, not just SCROTUS. Certainly, power-mad Justices from Marshall to Taney to Burger have tossed the Constitution to the winds to advance their own agendas, one can ask why Trump's didn't do the same. Could be there's more here than meets the eye.

      I was saying after the election that if Xiden(as some call him)/Heelsup get coronated, [continue to] watch Texas. Texas will be the most likely and most capable to tell the Federal Empire to pound sand. ("Ban fracking? Phhhttt. We're just getting started.")

    The GOP establishment has a job; be the opposing party. Like the media whose job it is to protect democrats, GOP establishment politicians are put into place to moan, groan, complain and offer half-hearted solutions to democrat issues; not actually try to fix anything. It's so much easier being in the minority. There are many republicans who want to be doers, but the number of Romney's out there keep them from mustering the numbers needed to actually "do" what they say.

  24. If the people in Powerful, dark places have found a way to get all the votes that they need to put anyone they want into the Presidency or Congress, then there is no need for any voter anymore, Republican OR Democrat. We're all in danger now because they specifically don't need us to win 'elections'. Maybe that's why Republican candidates are all talk and no action- because this condition has existed for longer than this election and I'd bet that all of Washington DC knows about it years ago and keeps it from us voters.

    Mitt is Situation Normal: FUBAR
    Trump was more REpublican than the Party has been in 3 decades. He does what they've promised in order to get majorities in both Houses and the Presidency. The Republican Party clearly doesn't believe in that stuff anymore.
