A former Democratic Senator for Nevada is pushing GOP establishment hack and failed 2012 presidential candidate Sen. Willard “Mitt” Romney (“R”-Utah) to run against President Donald J. Trump in 2020.
“Former Nevada Sen. Harry Reid said Thursday that he thinks President Donald Trump has no conscience and said he’d like to see Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney challenge Trump in 2020 for the GOP nomination for president,” according to the Washington Times.
Of course Reid, whose abrupt retirement came in the wake of several corruption scandals, would endorse Romney. The sooner one of these elitist D.C. politicians retakes the White House, the uniparty can get back to doing what it does best – screwing ordinary Americans.
Reid reportedly called Trump “amoral” and said he “doesn’t have a conscience.” In his infinite wisdom, he also said that “the wall does not have popular support.” He must not have been cogent during 2015 and 2016, when millions of Americans – literally – attended Trump’s campaign rallies and chanted “build the wall.” Leave it to the D.C. establishment class to be so blatantly out of touch with actual Americans.
“Reid said later in the interview that he didn’t think there was much more Democrat Hillary Clinton could have done to defeat Trump in the 2016 election, calling Trump’s win “’an aberration,'” the report said.
Reid’s endorsement of Romney – whose crowning achievement as a “conservative” politician was bringing socialized healthcare to the people of Massachusetts as governor – is the perfect example of how the ruling class operates. Party matters not. What matters is that a fellow elitist – a political insider – runs the country. The rest is simply theatre.

“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
