Utah GOP Trashes Mitt Romney for His Spineless Vote to Convict Trump

Published

on

The impeachment saga has officially come to an end now that the Senate acquitted President Donald Trump on both articles of impeachment.

Utah Senator Mitt Romney was the only Republican to break the ranks by voting to convict Trump.

Given Romney’s establishment track record, this was to be expected.

The Utah GOP expressed its relief with President Trump’s acquittal and did not hesitate to call out Romney for his misguided vote:

“The Utah Republican Party is pleased to see President Trump completely acquitted by the United States Senate.  We appreciate the service rendered to our state by Utah’s two senators.  As a party, we strongly disagree with the vote cast today by Senator Romney.”

This response was more reasonable than conservative gatekeeper Erick Erickson’s take on the Romney vote.

Erickson tweeted, “Mitt Romney is not trying to placate the media nor does he hate Trump. He’s doing what he thinks is right. I disagree with him. The people of Utah probably agree with him. He’s a good man of high character — frankly of better character than many of those who’ll assail him.”

In the Trump era, Romney has been a massive Never Trumper.

It was the height of foolishness for Trump to listen to his advisers’ recommendation to endorse Romney in 2018.

A political figure who pals around with Democrats is not someone you can trust.

The very fact that Romney is consorting with globalist Democrats makes one wonder what Romney’s views are on traditional American values such as private gun ownership and free speech. Inquiring minds would like to know.

Nevertheless, this is a good start in exposing Romney.

From here on out, America First activists should be laying the groundwork for Romney’s defeat in the 2024 primaries.

Politicians like Romney must face pain for bad political behavior.

Democrat Congressman Dismisses Low Black Unemployment under Trump

Published

on

Even with Black unemployment at its lowest rate in nearly 50 years under the Trump administration’s watch, South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn dismissed these numbers.

Clyburn said these numbers are “not true” because Blacks “were fully employed during slavery.” So, “it all depends on how you measure” it, he asserted.

On Fox News’s Your World With Neil Cavuto, host Neil Cavuto chatted with Clyburn about the Trump economy. Clyburn asked whether the president’s policies are beneficial to Black Americans.

“Let’s leave the words aside,” stated Cavuto.  “Whether you like his [Trump’s] style or not, or tweets or not, or comments or not,  he’s delivered the goods for a lot of African-Americans has he not? With record-low unemployment levels for one group or another. Among Africa-Americans, you don’t think that’s something constructive?”

Clyburn, who voted to impeach Trump back in December, said, “Come on, Neil.  No, no, it’s not true.   I’m saying that the African-American unemployment is not the lowest it’s ever been unless you count slavery.”

“We were fully employed during slavery,” claimed Clyburn. “So it all depends on how you measure this up.”

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the national unemployment rate for African American workers, 16 years and older, was 5.4% in August 2019.  Michael W. Chapman of CNS New said this was the lowest rate in recorded history.

The BLS data for African American begins in 1972, almost 50 years ago.  According to a chart that Chapman posted, the unemployment rate numbers from July through December 2019 were in the 5’s range — 5.9, 5.4, 5.5, 5.5, 5.6 and 5.9. In January 2020, the rate was 6.0 percent.

Clearly Democrat elected officials are in denial about Trump’s economic success.

However, if the Trump administration wants to win black votes, it will need to push immigration restriction given how unskilled labor tends to displace black labor.
