Trump Ally Sean Reyes Is Preparing To Primary Mitt Romney For Utah Senate Seat

Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes, an ally of former President Donald Trump, is reportedly planning to primary Mitt Romney for his Utah Senate seat in 2024.

Politico revealed that Reyes is discussing a potential run with political players in state politics and supporters and allies associated with Trump.

A source for the outlet who is close to Reyes said he is “very seriously considering running” regardless of what Romney decides to do in 2024.

“He’s confident that regardless of what Senator Romney wants to do, he’s going to pursue this,” they told Politico.

Sean Reyes May Challenge Mitt Romney in 2024

Romney has a couple of options in the 2024 election cycle.

A national poll last month shows that Senator Romney runs even with fellow Republican Senator Ted Cruz at 4% of those voters making a choice for the Republican presidential primary.

That number ranks well below the 53% Trump received in the same poll, but would land him some votes.

Another poll one month earlier shows 64% of Republicans in Utah disapprove of Romney’s job performance, including half who strongly disapprove.

Last spring, the Senator had boos and catcalls cascaded down upon him from well over 2,000 Republican delegates at the Utah Republican State Convention.

The Republican Party in Weber County, Utah, issued a formal censure of Romney for his multiple votes to convict Trump during his impeachment trials.

Trump issued a statement around that time calling the Utah senator “a stone-cold loser!”

Romney’s Odd Behavior

Politico describes Sean Reyes as “a Trump loyalist” and reports that he’s met with the former President on two occasions “and each time Trump encouraged him to run against Romney.”

“When he meets with Trump, the only thing that comes up is ‘Will you run against Romney? I need you to run against Romney. Get that guy out,’” their source is quoted as saying.

Reyes backed Trump’s efforts to challenge the 2020 election results.

Asked about the prospect of running against Reyes, a confident Romney welcomed the challenge.

“Were I to decide to run again, the best news I could get would be that Sean Reyes was my opponent,” he said laughing and walking away.

Romney, often touted as center-right, moderate, or simply the voice of reason in the Republican Party, has been engaged in some extreme commentary and behavior of late.

He blamed the Russian invasion of Ukraine on the Trump-touted concept of ‘America First.’

“Putin’s impunity predictably follows our tepid response to his previous horrors in Georgia and Crimea, our naive efforts at a one-sided ‘reset,’ and the shortsightedness of ‘America First,’” said Romney.

This week, Romney joined Democrats as the only Republican to vote against repealing the transportation mask mandate.

Even eight Democrats had more courage than Romney and voted to end the yearlong mask charade.

He also engaged in truly extreme rhetoric, the likes of which you’d expect to hear “The View” or CNN, rather than a supposedly level-headed member of Congress, when he accused decorated Iraq War veteran and former Democratic Representative Tulsi Gabbard of being a Russian asset and spreading “treasonous lies.”

And, lest we forget, Senator Romney took part in a Black Lives Matter march to the White House in 2020.

Romney was filmed marching with protesters while explaining that he was walking “to make sure that people understand that Black Lives Matter.”

“We need a voice against racism … we need many voices against racism and against brutality,” he said. “And we need to stand up and say black lives matter.”

Tulsi Gabbard Torches Pelosi For Describing GOP As ‘Enemy Within The House’ – ‘Like Throwing A Match Into A Tinderbox’

Earlier this week, we reported that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) had slammed her Republican colleagues as the “enemy within the House.” Now, former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) is speaking out to let Pelosi know that she feels this was inappropriate of her to say.

Pelosi Attacks Republicans 

Pelosi used her weekly press conference on Thursday to shame Republicans, saying, “I do believe, and I have said this all along, that we will probably need a supplemental for more security for members when the enemy is within the House of Representatives, a threat that members are concerned about in addition to what is happening outside.”

When asked what she meant by “the enemy” within, Pelosi doubled-downed by saying, “It means that we have members of Congress who want to bring guns on the floor and have threatened violence on other members of Congress.”

Gabbard Fires Back

Gabbard went on “The Ingraham Angle” on Friday night to slam Pelosi for these comments.

“This kind of broad, inflammatory rhetoric is like throwing a match into the tinderbox,” Gabbard said of Pelosi’s remarks. As for Pelosi’s claim that Republican lawmakers threatened “violence on other members of Congress,” Gabbard called for Pelosi to get law enforcement involved if the threats are legitimate.

“What Speaker Pelosi is talking about is a very serious thing,” Gabbard told Fox News host Lauran Ingraham. “If there is evidence to back what she is saying … is true, this is a legal issue for law enforcement. Because members of Congress are not above the law either.”

“Isn’t this also inciting?” Ingraham asked. “If you think there is someone among the Republican caucus who’s actively plotting the murder of Nancy Pelosi or other members of Congress, that could then bring violence upon those individuals.”

“That’s really the issue here. If this is a criminal threat, let law enforcement deal with it,” Gabbard replied. “If there is no evidence of what she is talking about, and if it is not true, it is inciting further division and further harm potentially and further destroying the possibility of our country coming together.”

Gabbard Challenges Pelosi

Not stopping there, Gabbard issued a challenge to Pelosi.

“This is why it’s so important for Nancy Pelosi – again if these accusations are baseless – she needs to apologize, not so much to her colleagues but really to the American people who right now, more than ever, need leadership coming from the speaker of the House, who represents all members of Congress and the American people to bring us together,” she said. 

“For her and President Biden to deescalate these tensions, to turn down the temperature, to denounce those who are seeking to undermine our civil liberties and our constitutional rights, and who are inflaming these tensions,” Gabbard continued. “To say, ‘Hey, we’re all Americans, and we need to come together.'”

Ingraham then questioned if Democrats were trying to weaponize the Capitol riots that took place earlier this month “to justify future encroachment on civil liberties.” She added that Democrats may be “setting the stage” for “aggressive gun control,” putting a “wall around the Capitol,” or making Washington, D.C. a state.

“I share your same concerns,” Gabbard said in agreement, reasoning that if the “party in charge can extend this kind of government overreach and using the military and intelligence agencies against people who are of the opposing party or hold different views, then what’s to say the next party who comes in and takes charge can’t do the same? That really leaves us with a banana republic, not a democracy.”

For Hitting Hillary, Media Blacks Out Tulsi Gabbard Campaign

By David Kamioner | February 16, 2020

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii is not your typical Democrat. Sure, she buys into a lot of their socialistic nonsense. But then she wouldn’t be a modern Dem if she didn’t.

However, she has had some good words for the president/does not suffer from TDS, was not for impeachment, and, here’s the worst thing for Dems, she is in a running feud with Hillary Clinton on several fronts.

That is a sin her fellow Democrats and their lapdog media just can’t abide. So the media has spiked her, blacked her out, refused to cover her. Hence her dismal showings in Iowa and New Hampshire.

Now while I have no enthusiastic brief for the telegenic Gabbard, fair is fair. Also, any enemy of Hillary is an indirect pal of mine. Like Churchill said, “If Hitler invaded hell I would make at least a favourable reference to the devil in the House of Commons.”

Here’s what she said about it on Fox Business. Voters “really haven’t had a chance to hear my message or to learn about the background and experience I bring to serve as commander-in-chief because there’s been an almost total corporate media blackout since the day that I started running for president.”

She continued.

“I am the candidate that’s bringing this unifying message that’s not based on hate, not based on hate for Trump or hate for the other party or hate for any one group or another but is building this coalition of support that’s centered around love of country.”

Wait. What?

Did she actually use the term “love of country?” And she’s a Democrat?! Can you see why many of her fellow Dems and the media loathe her and can’t let her message get out? She also said she doesn’t base every hour of her waking existence on hating the president? Oh whoa. Get the bonnie lass a GOP registration card! Granted, blue Hawaii variety.

Combine those words with the run and gun with Hillary and her persona non grata status with the media is not only understandable, but expected. So across the barricades, as it used to be before the Dems lost their minds, we can throw Gabbard a jaunty salute in recognition of her sanity and patriotism. Then we can get back to the business of beating her party to an electoral pulp.

Democrats Rush To Use Obama In Campaign Ads

By David Kamioner | February 11, 2020

Six of the Democratic candidates battling for the presidential nomination in New Hampshire have used old clips of the disgraced 44th president in campaign ads.

Joe Biden, Tom Steyer, Michael Bloomberg, Liz Warren, Deval Patrick, and Tulsi Gabbard have all utilized Barack Obama to prime the pump.

The quotes in the spots are from years ago when they were running for different offices or engaged in other activities. But the spots are cut to make it appear that Obama is endorsing them today. To date the former president has said kind words about several of them. However, he has officially endorsed no one.

MORE NEWS: What if Biden drops out?

In fact, he may not endorse anyone until the convention or until there is a definite front runner with a clear path to the nomination. He and his wife are holding their fire so they upset no one, lest those not endorsed not endorse Michelle Obama for her possible upcoming statewide run in Illinois.

But the larger issue in using Obama highlights the fact that the Democrats are caught in a bizarre time warp/echo chamber where the hits from yesterday are playing to a much too appreciative audience.

Part of the reason is our old pal GOP political incompetence. Also bad timing was at play. The 2008 McCain presidential effort was shoddily run and it happened to coincide with national economic calamity. But the Democrats ignore those factors and think Obama pulled off an electoral miracle. Saying, for argument’s sake, that Obama did pull a nice stunt, it was over ten years ago. The nation has moved on.

And in 2012 they ran against Mitt Romney. Need we say more?

Do the Democrats really want to compare the economic and national security records of Obama and Trump? The Obama administration brought us a slow as molasses jobless uptick. Trump has brought economic boom.

In national security the prevailing Obama images are American sailors being taken prisoner by the Iranians and in response Obama flying billions in last minute pallets of cash to them just before he left office. The Trump defense record so far has an overriding image as well. Qassem Soleimani eating a hellfire missile.

MORE NEWS: Biden stuns New Hampshire voter by calling her a ‘lying, dog-faced pony soldier’

Given these examples, why in the world would the Democrats want Obama’s endorsement? Sure, it’ll play well in the primary season and especially well with black voters on Super Tuesday.

Nevertheless, by seeking it they go down a tone deaf and anachronistic path that will serve them ill in the fall.

Let’s hope they don’t realize it until next winter.

Democrats Lurch Towards Iowa Caucuses

By David Kamioner | February 1, 2020

With the president’s acquittal imminent, Democrats on the campaign trail in Iowa have turned their bile from him to their fellow prospective November losers.

This is very entertaining for the rest of us. Here are some reports from the ground in Iowa and elsewhere.

  • Sanders has a small lead over Biden in Iowa. But a lot of Sanders’ support is from the under 30 crowd and they may blab to pollsters but they turn out to vote/caucus in relatively small numbers. We’ll see but don’t count Biden out. The caucuses are Monday.

RELATED: Trump Wins Witness Vote 51-49, Acquittal Looks Solid

  • Hillary Clinton is clashing with every other Democrat these days. Sanders still loathes her from cheating him out of the nomination in 2016 and trashing him recently.Tlaib and assorted socialists booed her at an Iowa rally on Friday and Tulsi Gabbard is suing her for $50 million. Wow, for poor Hills it seems like an authoritarian psychopath can’t get a break these days.
  • Mike Bloomberg’s campaign put out a campaign video, no lie, that showcased the candidate asking the odd question, “Where is my ice cream?”He gets handed a pint of the dessert, which he then strangely seems to stab with a spoon. After that he, get this, takes a small gopher-like nibble at the ice cream and says, “Big Gay Ice Cream is the best.” I did not make that up…Paging Dr. Freud!
  • After the GOP win on witnesses on Friday, Ted Cruz mocked Nancy Pelosi by doing her little weird clap right back at the Democrats on the Senate floor. Wolverine is just totally cool these days.
  • I know, I know, I’m not supposed to like Kamala Harris. And sure, her politics are odious. But she is telegenic and had to be told, like a high school cheerleader, to stop laughing at a Senate Democrat press conference on impeachment. Gotta at least give her that.

  • AOC took in over $1 million in January, money she has pledged to use to take out electable moderate Democrats and Democrat incumbents and replace them with hard left socialist primary challengers.That’s how she got in the House in 2018. Another telegenic Democrat lass that is inadvertently amusing us.
  • And finally, CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin told unhappy fellow CNN pundits, after the GOP Friday victory, that the final verdict of history on the whole impeachment saga would boil down to two words, “Trump Won.” Well, what’s that about a blind squirrel?

Dave Chappelle: “I Don’t Look at Trump Supporters as My Enemy”

In an interview in which he discussed his support for 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang, the comedian Dave Chappelle said that he doesn’t look at Trump supporters as his enemy.

“I Understand Why People Voted for Trump”

“I like Andrew’s pragmatism,” Chappelle told reporters in Ames, Iowa.

“I don’t look at Trump supporters as my enemy at all. I understand why people voted for Trump. I understand people are desperate. And I think that Andrew is right you run against the reasons that Trump got elected,” Chappelle continued, going on to highlight that he has a broad appeal across the political spectrum, both professionally and personally.

“I got friends on both sides of the political aisle, I got fans on both sides of the political aisle,” Chappelle said.

Chappelle explained that he was backing Yang because he saw him as having a number of good ideas.

“A lot of people say professionally it’s not wise to support any candidate, but this idea is so good, that I think it should exist,” he explained.  “And I think the fountainhead of many of the good ideas on the table this year are coming from a single source — Andrew Yang. And for some reason, no one’s paying attention. This guy is the origin of a platform that really does address where I think the country needs to go.”

RELATED: Andrew Yang Had the Guts to Say, Let’s ‘Stop Being Obsessed Over Impeachment’

Chappelle Understands America

Chappelle endorsed Yang earlier this month, and pledged to do a number of shows in aid of his campaign. This should not come as a shock to anyone – Chappelle is really an old school liberal who likes to poke fun at everyone equally, and certainly doesn’t bow down to political correctness. His only two options on the Democrat field who are at least trying to reach across the aisle would be Yang or Sen. Tulsi Gabbard – everyone else constantly panders to the progressive left and outrage mob.

Both of them are also the only ones to have truly defended free speech, something that Chappelle holds dear in his heart. In his acceptance speech for the Mark Twain Award at the start of January, he fiercely defended the First Amendment, and declared stand-up comedy to be an “incredibly American genre”:

I don’t think any other country can produce this many comedians. Unbeknownst to many people in this audience, I don’t think there’s opinion that exists in this country that is not represented in a comedy club by somebody… I know comics that are very racist, and I watch ’em on stage, and everyone’s laughin’, I’m like, that motherf***** means it. Don’t get mad at ’em, don’t hate ’em, we go upstairs and have a beer and sometimes I even appreciate the artistry that they paint their racist opinions with. Man, it’s not that serious. The First Amendment is first for a reason. The Second Amendment is just in case the first one doesn’t work out.

RELATED: Dave Chappelle Takes On The Outrage Mob

If more of our comedians and entertainers were like Chappelle, who’s not afraid to poke fun at every issue, I think this country would be a lot more united politically than it is today. People are sick and tired of being ranted at by liberal elites who hate them for thinking differently. Dave Chappelle is a much needed breath of fresh air in this toxic environment.

Tulsi Gabbard Despised at CNN, Shut Out of Town Hall

By David Kamioner | January 29, 2020

When Army combat veteran and telegenic Democrat member of Congress from Hawaii Tulsi Gabbard showed guts by voting “present” at last month’s House impeachment vote, she must have known she would pay a big price from her fellow Democrats and their lapdog pals in the media.

She was right.

Hillary Clinton, a woman who not only never served her country in uniform but has actively campaigned against U.S. combat troops in the field, called her a “Russian asset.” I believe psychiatrists call that “projection.” Though Hillary’s case would be ex post facto.

The Left in general has called for her head on a pike, expulsion from the party, and worse, making her attend a beer bash hosted by Elizabeth Warren.

RELATED: Alan Dershowitz Hits Back at Elizabeth Warren

The latest slight is Gabbard’s exclusion from a CNN town hall scheduled only a few days before the New Hampshire primary. Now, there are rules for town hall inclusion that have to do with poll numbers. Gabbard is polling 5% in the Granite State. She is not included. Yet Democrat Governor Deval Patrick and limo leftist Tom Steyer, who are polling lower than she is, are included.

Here’s Gabbard:


CNN refuses to comment on the topic.

Yeah, I bet they do.

It would be tempting to put on the leftist frock for a moment and scream, “Sexism! Misogyny!” But the actual reason is much easier to ken.

The Democrat media grupenfuhrers will truck with no rebellion, no opposition, or no independence. This is especially true if the rebel has a national stage and makes a good impression on camera, thus guaranteeing her an audience.

However, Gabbard goes farther in offense than that.

Her manner is not hysterical, her tone is not histrionic, her judgment seems sober and reasonable. While she is too liberal for my taste, what she is doing in the modern Democratic Party is a mystery.

RELATED: GOP Brings Out Three Big Guns in Senate Trial of Trump

She represents what that party used to be. The party of Harry Truman and John Kennedy that was driven into exile long ago by the likes of George McGovern, Ted Kennedy, and now by Democrat national de facto leader Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

She may not be as moderate or even conservative on many issues as were Truman and Kennedy. But she has guts. She seems to, by her own lights, love this country.

And that’s something not many modern Dems can understand or tolerate.

Tulsi Gabbard Announces $50M Lawsuit Against Hillary Clinton

By John Wesley Reid | January 22, 2020

Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard is suing Hillary Clinton on charges of defamation. Last October Clinton referred to Gabbard as a “Russian asset” during an interview.

Aan excerpt from the lawsuit reads:

“Clinton lied about her perceived rival Tulsi Gabbard…She did so publicly, unambiguously, and with obvious malicious intent. Tulsi has been harmed by Clinton’s lies — and American democracy has suffered as well.”

The two have sparred publically over social media during Gabbard’s campaign. The day after Clinton’s interview remarks, Gabbard fired back on Facebook:

“Great! Thank you, Hillary Clinton. You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain.

From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a concerted campaign to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know — it was always you, through your proxies and powerful allies in the corporate media and war machine, afraid of the threat I pose.

It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me. Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly.”
