    John Huber will continue to serve as the U.S. attorney for Utah, at least for the time being. Huber was given a reprieve by the U.S. Justice Department and will stay on as an interim U.S. attorney for the state for the next four months. Huber was one of 46 U.S. attorneys who were asked by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions last Friday to resign. ... Huber joined the U.S. Attorney’s Office since 2002 and was appointed to become Utah’s U.S. Attorney in February 2015 with the support of Sen. Orrin Hatch. Huber was confirmed by the Senate in June...

    The Tea Party movement is alive in Utah. With representatives from FreedomWorks in the audience, delegates at the Utah Republican Convention managed to force Sen. Orrin Hatch into a June 26 primary. He got 59.2 percent of their votes against Dan Liljenquist, a 38-year-old state senator. Hatch needed 60 percent to avoid the primary. He couldn’t do it. In two rounds of voting, he went from 2,243 votes to 2,313 votes. If he’d gotten 32 more votes, he would have wrapped this up… FreedomWorks and other Tea Party groups now have two Causes to distract them from their failure to...

    While Obama’s out there pointing at bridges that might need repair, Orrin Hatch reveals that there were 35 states that got less stimulus money for their roads, highways, and bridges than Solyndra did in a guaranteed loan for their green jobs scam.

    More Utahns want Sen. Orrin Hatch replaced than want to see him re-elected to another six-year term, according to a Salt Lake Tribune poll of likely voters conducted the week before Tuesday’s vote. The survey noted that Hatch isn’t up for re-election until 2012, but asked if the vote were held today, would voters back him or someone else? Forty percent of likely voters would give him a seventh term, while 48 percent say they were inclined to favor another candidate. Twelve percent remained unsure. The poll, conducted by Washington, D.C.-based Mason-Dixon Polling & Research, Inc. had a margin of...

    "I just received an email from Senator Jim Demint urging conservatives around the country to help send Mike Lee to the US Senate. I'm proud of the delegates in Utah for telling Sen. Robert Bennett to take a hike after 18 years. Plaudits to them. That’s the kind of conviction that people who claim to be patriots need to demonstrate (unlike McCain supporters). Next they should get rid of Orrin Hatch. Granted, he’s no Arlen Sphincter, Olympia Snowe or Susan Collins but he runs a..." (continued)
  • Orrin Hatch was Right about One Thing

    I was just watching Orrin Hatch on Cavuto, he sure was on the defensive. They were showing a great video of Hatch being castigated by a constituent for going along with the spending. I don’t remember which congressional race Hatch was talking about but he alluded to a Constitutional Party candidate who took votes away from a Republican, causing the liberal to win. I think Hatch was right about one thing, we do need to stick together or we will end up with liberals. I think we are going about it the right way now. Conservatives already HAVE a conservative...

    Arnold backs immigrant candidacy By Audrey Hudson THE WASHINGTON TIMES California's Austrian-born governor says foreign-born citizens should be able to run for president and he supports a constitutional amendment to make it happen. "There's many, many, many people here that have worked within a government and have done an extraordinary job and not have been born in America," Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Republican, told NBC's "Meet the Press" yesterday. "I think that there are so many people here in this country that are now from overseas, immigrants that are doing such a terrific job with the work, bringing businesses here, and...

    Washington - Nevada conservative activist Janine Hansen is the first to say she is no Democrat or liberal, but she also complains the Bush administration has gone too far in eroding privacy and civil liberties with the Patriot Act and other anti-terrorism measures. Hansen, president of the anti-feminist Nevada Eagle Forum, backed up her complaint Thursday in Reno by stepping forward as a featured speaker at a three-city announcement launching the Nevada Campaign to Defeat the Patriot Act.
