Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) voted against confirming a conservative justice to the federal bench earlier today because the man had sharply criticized former President Barack Hussein Obama in 2011.
Michael J. Truncale was ultimately confirmed as the United States District Judge for the Eastern District of Texas by a 49-46 margin, but no thanks to Romney who was the lone GOP defector joining with the Democrats to vote against Trump’s judicial pick.
Truncale had called Obama an “un-American imposter” in 2011, something considered verboten to a man of Romney’s establishment prestige.
“I made many of the comments referred to herein in my capacities as a candidate for the United States Congress or as a political commentator. As a judicial nominee, it would be inappropriate for me to offer comments on any political matters.” Truncale said in a response to written questioning from Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).
Truncale has also served as a whistle-blower against voter fraud. He testified before the Senate last year that he rejected fraudulent ballots while serving as an election judge in Texas.
“I was once an election judge and had people from other states come by wanting to vote and I denied their ballot because they weren’t even Texans, or properly registered, so I’ve seen that,” Mr. Truncale said.
Romney did not seem to care about Truncale’s consistent record of constitutional fidelity, but was instead more concerned with grandstanding against the President. In his typically self-serving manner, Romney rushed to the fake news shortly after making his vote to virtue signal to the opposition media.
“He made particularly disparaging comments about President Obama. And as the Republican nominee for president, I just couldn’t subscribe to that in a federal judge,” Romney said to Politico. “This was not a matter of qualifications or politics; this was something specifically to that issue as a former nominee of our party.”
Perhaps if Romney had shown as much gumption as Truncale did when running against Obama in 2012, he wouldn’t have lost in such embarrassing fashion and doomed the U.S. to four more years of socialism and racial division.
Romney has opposed Trump recently on issues like the emergency measures declaration at the U.S. southern border and the nomination of Herman Cain to the Federal Reserve board. He will likely continue to undermine Trump’s ‘America First’ agenda in his Senatorial role for as long as he is able.

Arizona’s McSally Introduces Resolution to End Senate Salaries Until Stimulus Passes
If the people won’t get paid, neither will their legislators.
Arizona Senator Martha McSally has introduced a Senate resolution that would withhold pay from all U.S. Senators until the chamber passes the eagerly-awaited Coronavirus stimulus, termed as ‘TrumpBux’ by some for the one-time payments of $1,200 to almost all American adults.
Americans have been largely cut off from everyday economic life by the governmental response to an act of God. It’s all too obvious that federal compensation is required.
“If Americans aren’t getting paid, then neither should the Senators failing to support the workers and families who need help making ends meet,” said the freshman Arizona Senator.
“Today, I introduced legislation to have Senators’ pay withheld until relief is passed. It is despicable that millions of Americans are without a paycheck in this time of crisis, while the Senate wastes precious time playing political games. The Senate must pass this relief package now in order to get cash straight to the people.”
Fortunately for Senators that would prefer a path of continued political grandstanding, the planned stimulus may be sent to the President’s desk on Wednesday after negotiations between Chuck Schumer and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.
The final estimate of the stimulus cost has been gauged at $2 trillion dollars, a sizable package that will be distributed in a combination of TrumpBux and loans to small and big businesses.
There are some similarities between the TrumpBux proposal and universal basic income. The former isn’t ‘universal-‘ individuals who reported more than $75,000 in income on their 2018 tax return will get less money and those who reported more than $100,000’ won’t get anything.
McSally’s proposal ultimately could prove to be the final metaphorical poker stick to the feet of obstructionist Democrats seeking to delay the stimulus package with feckless political gamesmanship.
