Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) is one of President Donald Trump’s most dogged opponents in Washington D.C., and for standing on behalf of the globalist status quo against Trump, Romney is now referring to himself as a “renegade Republican.”
“I guess I should consider myself a renegade Republican because I still believe that deficits and debt matter a lot,” Romney said.
Before Trump showed up on the political scene, Romney had called for Republicans to support a massive stimulus funding package. In the age of Trump, he has re-invented himself as a budget hawk despite his history as a big government Republican in order to attack the President.
Romney continued his critique of Trump in order to bash his ‘America First’ trade policies, foreign policy of engagement with Russia and North Korea, and bombastic style that causes liberals to self-immolate.
“I don’t like tariffs being placed on our friends and allies, I think the likes of Putin and Kim Jong-un deserve censure instead of flattery, and I think demonstrating personal character is one of the most important responsibilities of the leader of the land,” Romney said.
“We attempt to be the leader of the world, but we’re sending billions of dollars to China and Russia and other countries, while they’re using that money – our interest – to build a military that would confront us,” Romney added.
Romney believes that Trump should go back to the status quo in order to confront China, abandoning the trade war while kowtowing to globalist-dominated nations that refuse to protect Western Civilization.
“How do you compete with that? You compete with that by linking arms with your allies economically and military, but we’re doing the opposite,” he said about China. Romney’s former venture capital firm, Bain Capital, is infamous for its extensive ties to China.
There is one area of agreement that Romney shares with Trump: opposition to socialized medicine. Romney criticized the proposals of far-left demagogues like Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders to give free healthcare to every American.
“Medicare for All as it’s described would be expensive, it would be intrusive on our personal liberties and it would be an unmitigated bust in this country,” Romney said.
“In other words, no more insulin being $45 in Canada and $450 here in the United States. One price across the world,” he added.
Despite being loathed by the mainstream of his own political party and failing to stop President Obama’s second term in 2012, Romney pledges to continue pushing forward on behalf of his powerful globalist backers.
“The perspective of conservatives is based on keeping America strong — providing for a bright and prosperous future for all of our people — not just now, but long term,” he said.
If President Trump can fully realize his MAGA agenda, it will be in spite of the best efforts of individuals like Romney who have done all in their power to sabotage the revival of America from within.

Pelosi is Emboldened by Coronavirus Bailout, Vows to Dupe Republicans Harder Next Time
The Democrats’ socialist agenda is winning big during the coronavirus panic.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pulled the wool over the eyes of President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans with last week’s $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package. The disaster relief money was earmarked for many liberal pet projects, and Pelosi aims to do the same thing for the next round of bailouts.
She said on Monday that House Democrats are already preparing another massive stimulus bill, using the coronavirus pandemic to enact more socialism. She is likely to include massive infrastructure spending and serious government intervention into the health care markets in the upcoming legislation.
“Our first bills were about addressing the emergency. The third bill was about mitigation. The fourth bill would be about recovery. Emergency, mitigation, recovery,” Pelosi said during a conference call.
“I think our country is united in not only wanting to address our immediate needs — emergency, mitigation, and the assault on our lives and livelihoods — but also, how we recover in a very positive way,” she added.
Republican leaders are up in arms about how Pelosi is exploiting a crisis to get her partisan agenda muscled through Congress, but it is unclear if they have the courage to actually stop her.
“They’re approaching it — it seems like — as an opportunity to pass their political and ideological agenda. We’re approaching it as, ‘How do we protect the public health and our economy?’ And those are pretty divergent goals,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said.
Pelosi is eager to exploit the coronavirus crisis quickly and use the panic and fear in the public as an excuse to massively increase government spending and control.
“I do think that it is really important that as soon as we are here, we are ready to pass legislation,” she said.
President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans did Pelosi’s bidding when they moved forward a $2 trillion bailout bill that included funding for liberal policy goals that had nothing to do with the coronavirus.
Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) sounded the alarm over the sham and attempted to get Congress to actually deliberate and vote on the bill. It instead passed on a voice vote with most legislators sequestered away from Washington D.C.
"This was a wealth transfer… do the math. The $1,200 check is just the cheese in the trap" @RepThomasMassie stood alone in Congress against last week's 2 trillion-dollar stimulus package. He explains why it SHOULDN'T have been a controversy. #istandwithmassie pic.twitter.com/nPPNYh5vkS

Massie’s principled stand against Pelosi’s profligate spending bill earned him a tongue lashing from President Trump, who now wants Massie replaced in Congress because he’s too conservative.
…& costly. Workers & small businesses need money now in order to survive. Virus wasn’t their fault. It is “HELL” dealing with the Dems, had to give up some stupid things in order to get the “big picture” done. 90% GREAT! WIN BACK HOUSE, but throw Massie out of Republican Party!

With no Republicans seemingly willing to stand up against Pelosi, there will likely be more bailout socialism on the way as the Democrats use coronavirus for their far-left power grabs.
