Mitt Romney


2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney took the stage at the Hinckley University of Politics at the University of Utah Thursday morning to call on Republicans to not nominate Donald Trump as the GOP candidate for president.


On March 3rd, 2014 Abby Martin decided to speak her mind and express her disappointment regarding the Crimea media coverage from all sides of the spectrum live on her television show, Breaking The Set. The story went viral on the mainstream media, only because her show airs on Russian backed RT, and Russia had just stepped into the conflict following the coup in Ukraine. Immediately following this action, a cadre of younger thirty-something neoconservatives in the heart of Washington DC tried to smear Abby after discovering her political views. In addition to the distorted take-down attempts against her, they tried to hijack her stand and manipulate it into anti-Russian / pro-US propaganda.

So what did Mitt promise Billy in return for this? Colleen Curry reports for ABC News:

Graham’s Evangelistic Association removed the word Mormon from its website, where it used to be listed along with Jehovah’s Witnesses and Scientology as a cult…

Turns out Mister Rogers is a YouTube star … he was just forty years early. In 1969, Fred Rogers appeared before the United States Senate Subcommittee on Communications. His goal was to support funding for PBS and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, in response to significant proposed cuts by President Nixon.

Of course now that Mister Rogers is long gone, only Big Bird is left to save PBS from the new Republican menace, Mitt Romney…





Mother Jones has obtained video leaked by an anonymous source of Mitt Romney addressing a select group of donors, a setting in which he seems far more at ease than appearing before the public.

It’s fascinating to see a presidential candidate speaking unguardedly behind the scenes. Among other remarks, Romney says that nearly half the population does not pay income tax and thus is overly entitled and dependent on the government, and his “job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.” (Romney seems to be forgetting the low tax rates which he himself enjoys.) He jokes that he wishes he were Latino, which would make it much easier to become president, and brags that he has assembled a team of “Karl Rove equivalent” consultants who have influenced elections “in Armenia, in Africa, in Israel.” Below, he discusses visiting the Chinese factory of a Bain-owned company, and how it made him grateful to be American:
