Never Trumper Mitt Romney Rules Out Trump Impeachment



According to USA Today, Utah Senator Mitt Romney is not ready to endorse President Donald Trump’s bid for re-election.

On Sunday at CNN’s “State of the Union”, Romney declared that it’s “way too early” for him to back Trump in 2020, stating that Trump has to improve “when it comes to helping shape the character of the country.”

According to polls, Trump is poised to crush former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld in a potential primary for the Republican nomination. In the case that Trump wins the nomination, Romney may vote for his wife, Ann Romney, just like he did in 2016.

Romney stated, “We will have to wait and see how she does.”

During the 2016 campaign, Romney was one of the strongest Never Trumpers. The former Massachusetts Governor even called Trump a “phony” and a “fraud.” Romney has maintained his criticism of Trump since he assumed the presidency.

In a Washington Post op-ed, Romney asserted that “the president has not risen to the mantle of the office.” Trump pushed back and asked Romney to be a “team player”, while also taunting him about his failed Presidential campaign against then President Barack Obama in 2012. Trump declared that Romney could have defeated Obama if he had “fought the way he fights me.”

Romney said, “I think young people, as well as people around the world, look at the president of the United States and say, does he exhibit the kind of qualities that we would want to emulate?”

However, Romney does not believe impeachment is the right way to go. While Romney believed that Congressman Justin Amash was “courageous” for being the first congressional Republican to declare that Trump was guilty of “impeachable conduct”, he believes Amash “reached a different conclusion than I have.”

After reading special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on potential obstruction of justice by the president, Romney commented, “you just don’t have the elements” to prove that Trump committed any crime.

Romney is also aware that impeachment will be hard to move through a Republican-controlled Senate.

This new reality has made the shrillest of Never Trumpers understand that impeachment is out of the question at this point.

For most Never Trumpers, Romney would be an ideal candidate given his penchant for supporting defense interests and not rocking the boat on other major issues like central banking.

In the meantime, Romney will continue to attack Trump whenever the opportunities present themselves.


Mara Elvira Salazar is No Friend of America First Nationalism

Republican leaders would be wise to ignore all of her political advice.



If there’s one Republican leader that young activists should never listen to, it’s Florida Congresswoman Maria Elvira Salazar. 

Salazar, who is a Cuban American, has been an outspoken advocate of loosening U.S. immigration laws. In fact, she even confronted known immigration hawk and key Trump adviser Stephen Miller at a Republican Study Committee weekly lunch on February 24, 2021. She specifically criticized Trump’s immigration message and demanded that the GOP be more inclusive in its outreach.

“I told him [Miller] that the GOP needs to attract the browns,” stated Salazar. “We, for the last 30 years since Ronald Reagan, have not sent the right message to the browns,” she continued. “Reagan was the last guy who gave a path to citizenship to 3 million people … 35 years ago. It’s time for us to do the same thing that Reagan did.”

Salazar doubled down on her pro-immigration message when she went on Larry Kudlow’s show on March 2 and declared that former President Donald Trump would have done better with Hispanics by advocating for looser immigration. Journalist Ryan Girdusky noted how some of Trump’s advisers were already pushing for amnesty lite policies:

Girdusky added that Salazar was rather unhinged in her criticism of Miller’s vision for the GOP:

Salazar made a lot of noise about the Hispanic vote, despite ignoring how Trump improved his Hispanic numbers between 2016 and his re-election bid in 2020 from 28% to 32%. And he did so without much Hispandering or campaigning on passing amnesty. 

The unsavory fact that the GOP consultant class and the likes of Salazar refuse to acknowledge is that the Black Lives Matter unrest alone likely pushed significant segments of the Hispanic population into the Democrats’ arms. BLM radicalism alienated Americans of all backgrounds., but Hispanics were not having any of this kind of ruckus. Even Hispanic Democrats, of all groups, largely supported strong military action during the riots.

In reality, Hispanic support for Trump is largely based on his bluster and political bluntness, which many minority groups find comfort in. 

However, Republicans like Salazar gets it all wrong by thinking that expanding immigration both legal and illegal is a key to the Republican Party success. The Republican Party will have to concede that they can make gains with Hispanics at the margins but they cannot expect to win the majority of the Hispanic vote due to Hispanics’ propensity to support many causes ranging from gun control to more government involvement in healthcare. Data from the Pew Research Center demonstrates these beliefs among Hispanics. Nevertheless, there are some avenues for outreach with this demographic  but they must be done right. 

The key for Republican success is the white working class voters, which played a crucial role in putting Trump over the top in the Midwest back in 2016. These voters are not the most reliable in terms of turnout, but they comprise a vast segment of the American electorate. Any candidate who can activate them could potentially build a hegemonic electoral coalition for years to come. The goal for a sane Republican campaign is to maximize turnout and support among the WWC. 

Such inroads with WWC voters are more important than meeting a diversity quota the likes of Salazar and naive Republican strategists would like the party to pursue. Any nationalist campaign worth its salt would be promoting the following: Infrastructure projects targeting the Midwest, the restriction of both illegal and legal immigration, and re-shoring programs to bring jobs back. 

On the other hand, following Salazar’s program is the way that the GOP will become irrelevant and alienate many WWC voters who are already on the fence with regards to the Republican Party. These voters are not going to gravitate towards Republicans just because of the “R” next to their name. They still must be catered to and pushing for amnesty is one way to turn working class voters off.

Under Salazar’s watch, the GOP will simply be going back to the politically correct ways of the Bush administration. To tap into the sleeping giants that is the WWC, Republican leaders should ignore everything Salazar has to say and get fully behind nationalist policies such as immigration restriction, infrastructure development, and re-shoring.
