Romney Shreds Trump

   In one of the most thorough and eviscerating indictments of Donald Trump;'s candidacy, former GOP standard bearer Mitt Romney delivered a 20 minute speech that left little doubt the war is on to oust  Mr. Trump from his front runner status.
    Mr. Romney said the promises from Mr. Trump are as worthless as a degree from Trump University, and on it went.
     Mr. Trump will respond later today.

Sicking Romney on Trump, the establishment is really clueless. It will only increase Trump's popularity.

Too bad this pussy didn't attack Obama like that during the last election.
You think the rino wusses are getting this?

If you look on face book and twitter the GOP voters are not buying it. In fact I think he opened up the door wider for Donald Trump. It's not 1950 anymore. Within minutes you are a goat or a hero. Mitt is a goat.

Of course Trump is a fraud and a con man, that’s a given as is Romney a hypocrite.

But why is the failed GOP establishment trying to con us into believing the dominionist Cruz or the ineffective Rubio would do a better job or even have what it takes to beat Hillary? What have THEY done? What have THEY accomplished? What are THEIR special presidential qualities? What is it about either of those two that would inspire confidence that we would just be heading for the same old, same old?

What a mess.

Romney and Bain claim that he was not involved with Bain, but Bain and its portfolio companies in their required filings under the Securities Exchange Act continuously certified to the Securities and Exchange Commission say precisely the opposite — asserting without qualification that he was a controlling person, fully in charge of Bain, under the Federal securities law. Under normal circumstances, the question of the truth of this representation would result in an investigation by the SEC into possible criminal, as well as civil, violations of the law."

On August 17th, Britain's Telegraph (which is perhaps the world's best daily newspaper) published a stunning investigative news report by Jon Swaine, which alleged that when Mitt Romney was Governor of Massachussetts, he "profited from a marketing company that was contracted by the state," and which was controlled by Paul Ryan's brother, Tobin Ryan, who had been an employee of Bain consulting (Bain & Company), who had left Bain to start a company that was financed by $5 million from Bain Capital, which Mitt Romney owned and still owns. "Both Mr Romney and Tobin Ryan ... also apparently stood to benefit from the $230 million ... sale of the [Ryan] company in 2005, while Mr. Romney remained in office" as Governor. Romney's having not divested himself of his financial interest in Ryan's company while that company was hired by the state "could have resulted in a $2,000 ... fine or a 2.5-year prison sentence. The potential punishments are now stronger. Asked repeatedly by The Daily Telegraph throughout this week whether Mr Romney had indeed profited from the company, had been aware of the potential conflict of interest, or had taken any action to avoid one, his campaign and Bain Capital declined to comment."

Tobin Ryan was a senior manager at Bain & Company when he started his firm in 1998, and he and his partner obtained the $5 million Bain Capital funding in June 2000. Then, "In December 2001, Imagitas [Ryan's company] secured a contract with Wisconsin, whose then-governor, Scott McCallum, was a political ally of Paul Ryan ... Imagitas announced a similar partnership with Massachussets in July 2002, shortly before Mr Romney was elected as the state's Republican governor." Then, the firm was sold in 2005.

Under Massachussetts law, Governor Romney was required to report the possible conflict-of-interest here, and could have applied for an exemption that would have freed him from possible restrictions on actions regarding Imagitas. But, apparently, he did neither, and so his winnings from the sale of the Imagitas might be subject to legal scrutiny.

Had to look up the term dominionist. Seems it is never used outside of liberal blogs and is described as meaningless neologism. A term used to insult someone's religion that ends up backfiring and diminishing the credibility of the user.

Trump will win Presidency for GOP: What's really most insulting to the Trump supporter, is the establishment which couldn't draw flies in 2012. The GOP now has a candidate that has 8,500,000 voters participating on the GOP side, compared to the Dems 5,500,000 voters, and Donald J. Trump is the magnet, that GOP voters, and Independents, and even Democrats, are coming out to vote for this election! Mike Flynn 'Middle Class Mike'

“Had to look up the term dominionist.”

Good for you, here…. have a cookie, you earned it.

But unlike you, I didn’t have to look up the term “liberal neologism” since I already knew it was a term used by oblivious conservatives on equally naïve right wing blogs who are in total denial of the dominonists taking control of their party.

Don’t’ believe it?

Here, chew on this a while. In the meantime, you might want to look up the word ‘clueless.’

Christian leader: Trump reveals that progressives were right about evangelicals all along:

‘“Why are many evangelical leaders, including some who pontificate on nearly everything else, scared silent as evangelicalism is associated with everything from authoritarianism and bigotry to violations of religious freedom?” Moore asked. “How can they look the other way in silence when politicians praise Planned Parenthood and demur about white supremacists and neo-Nazis?”’
Moore then admitted that “secular progressives” had been right in one criticism of contemporary evangelicals, who fuse religion and politics to gain power.

‘“For years, secular progressives have said that evangelical social action in America is not about religious conviction but all about power,” Moore wrote. “They have implied that the goal of the Religious Right is to cynically use the ‘moral’ to get to the ‘majority,’ not the other way around. This year, a group of high-profile old-guard evangelicals has proven these critics right.”’

He criticized a willingness to look the other way when the word “evangelical” is “co-opted by heretics and lunatics…..”

Religious bigotry is distasteful, even when it comes from secular progressives.
