I saw that this was happening earlier this evening and questioned whether I wanted to write about it here. Do I really want to give oxygen to a guy like Nick Fuentes who has demonstrated that he’s a racist and an anti-Semite? Well, it turns out I needn’t have worried because 25 minutes into what was supposed to be a 2-hour conversation, Kanye bailed and Milo and Fuentes followed. As Tim Pool said later, “It was all hype and then all nothing.”
On Monday, Romney told NBC News reporter Sahil Kapur he found the meeting “disgusting.” He went on to brag about impeaching Trump twice and not wanting him “hanging over our party like a gargoyle.”
Romney neglected to mention that Ye was supposed to meet Trump alone and the former president had no idea Fuentes would show up or who he is.
But who expects full honesty from a man who stabbed Trump in the back after Trump tried to put aside their past differences?
Trump attempted to bury the hatchet between them back in 2018 when he endorsed Romney’s run for U.S Senate. Romney happily accepted the endorsement and used the then-president’s generosity to get elected.
Let’s now do a thought experiment on who the real gargoyle of the GOP really is. Trump launched his first run for political office in 2015. In 2016 he took down a loaded Republican field for President. He then pulled off the greatest upset in American political history when he defeated Crooked Hillary Clinton in the 2016 General Election.
Mitt Romney? He ran for President twice and lost badly both times. In 2008, he lost in the Republican primaries to arguably the most infamous RINO of all time, the late Senator John McCain of Arizona. He then struggled to win against a weak GOP field in 2012 and Barack Obama destroyed him in the 2012 General Election.
As President, Trump fulfilled many long-held promises that establishment Republicans simply used as bubba bait for the base. Some of these fulfilled pledges included renegotiating NAFTA, moving America’s Israeli embassy to Jerusalem, cracking down on illegal immigration, and partially repealing Obamacare.
His achievements do not end there, however. Trump rebuilt the American military which Obama gutted during his reign. He also pushed through one of the largest tax cuts in American history, which provided relief to all American families. Furthermore, his judicial appointments proved the best in American history. Without Trump, Roe vs Wade remains on the books and our nation loses thousands more unborn children in the process.
Trump’s greatest accomplishment, however, was not starting another war. He was the first President since Ronald Reagan not to send American forces off to die in foreign lands. The deep state and the globalist politicians loathed Trump for this more than any other policy. The reason for this loathing is because Trump cost them billions of dollars. Any doubt this helped lead to his first impeachment?
Romney’s “accomplishments” include impeaching a duly elected Republican president twice for personal reasons and helping deliver Biden’s leftist agenda. He even voted for Biden’s radical Supreme Court nominee who cannot explain what a woman is! He also refused to support fellow Utah Republican Senator Mike Lee in his election versus Never-Trump grifter and deadbeat Evan McMullin.
Whether or not he returns to the Oval Office, Trump can forever hold his head high for his immeasurable accomplishments as president. Romney just needs to retire from public life for good.

U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert (R) speaks about close race, presumed win
Two House races still have not been called more than two weeks after Election Day.
The Republican Party is expected to strengthen its majority in the lower chamber of Congress when those two races are officially declared as GOP candidates are leading in both contests.
In the redrawn 13th Congressional District in California, John Duarte, a Republican Party candidate, received 50.2 percent of the total votes as 99 percent of the votes have been tabulated. Democrat candidate Adam Gray trailed Duarte by 593 votes, less than 0.5 percent.
There’s no automatic recounting law in California.
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) already declared victory and her Democrat opponent Adam Frisch has conceded. Boebert leads Frisch by 554 votes, less than 0.5 percent.
The race has not been called because Colorado law requires an automatic recounting when the difference is less than 0.5 percent.
With these two seats being added to the Republican majority, the GOP would have 222 seats in the U.S. House while the Democratic Party would have 213.
According to data compiled by the Cook Political Report, Republican House candidates received more than 3.3 million popular votes than their Democratic counterparts in the midterm elections.
Out of the total 106.6 million votes, Republicans beat Democrats with an advantage of 50.8 percent to 47.7.
Charlie Cook, founder of the Cook Political Report, wrote on Nov. 14 that the Republican Party—with a 4.9 percentage point advantage at that time—would normally gain 20–30 seats in the House, but didn’t gain as many seats as anticipated.
“Simply put, Republicans picked up the votes they needed, just not where they needed them most. Clearly something or someone intervened, affecting the outcome of the election in the places that mattered,” he wrote.
American Enterprise Institute senior fellow Emeritus Michael Barone believes House Republicans won the popular vote because the turnout in Central cities worked against the Democrats.
The popular vote didn’t give the Republican Party more seats because of redistricting, and Republican voters are more concentrated than before, he said.
However, the advantage in popular votes indicates the Republican Party could have a hopeful 2024.
“Republican House candidates won 58 percent of the popular vote in the South and 53 percent in the Midwest, two regions that together account for 298 of the 538 electoral votes. Duplicating that support is one way an unproblematic Republican nominee could top 270 electoral votes in 2024,” he wrote.
With President Joe Biden, a Democrat, in the White House and the U.S. Senate still being controlled by the Democrats for the next two years, the Republican majority in the House can hardly move forward with its policy agenda.
However, it’s most likely the Republicans will launch more investigations into the executive branch after January.
The House Oversight Committee will investigate President Joe Biden and his alleged involvement in his son Hunter’s foreign business deals, Reps. James Comer (R-Ky.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) announced on Nov. 17.
Contrary to the president’s claims, the elder Biden was directly involved in Hunter’s international business dealings, Comer said, citing whistleblower evidence.
“This is an investigation of Joe Biden, the president of the United States, and why he lied to the American people about his knowledge and participation in his family’s international business schemes,” he said at a press conference.
Comer, who is the incoming Oversight Committee chairman, claimed that the Biden family “flourished and became millionaires by simply offering access to the family.”
“This committee will evaluate the status of Joe Biden’s relationship with his family’s foreign partners, and whether he is a president who is compromised or swayed by foreign dollars and influence,” Comer said.
Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said Tuesday that the House of Representatives could begin an impeachment inquiry against Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas when the new 118th Congress convenes on Jan. 3, 2023.
