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.
Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee
Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.
Lifetime appointments to the highest court in our land undermine our democratic process and erode progress in our nation.
We must enact 18 year term limits on our Supreme Court justices to continue our march towards a more perfect union. https://t.co/9fCyggP686

Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.
When I first ran for Congress in 2014, I proposed limiting terms of Supreme Court Justice to 18-appointments.
Given the recent, dramatic politicization of the Court, it's time for real reform.
— Rep. Don Beyer (@RepDonBeyer) September 25, 2020
It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.
The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.
A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
