Sound Of Freedom Hero Tim Ballard Considers Run For Romney’s U.S. Senate Seat

Tim Ballard, a former agent for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), recently testified before a congressional committee and argued that U.S. open border policies are contributing to the growth of child trafficking.

His comments have reignited discussions surrounding his candidacy for Mitt Romney’s Senate seat, which he is reportedly considering.

Ballard has gained widespread attention for his work in rescuing children from human trafficking, which was highlighted by the movie “The Sound Of Freedom” based on his story.

Mitt Romney is set to retire which will give Tim an opportunity to fill his seat.

Fox News Reported:

The former Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agent who inspired the hit film “Sound of Freedom” said Friday he is “very seriously considering” a run for the U.S. Senate in his home state of Utah to replace retiring Sen. Mitt Romney.

Tim Ballard made the announcement during an appearance on the digital show of former Trump White House press secretary Sean Spicer, where he said he had been approached by numerous “influential people” for weeks about a potential run before Romney announced Wednesday he would not be running for re-election.

“Since Sound of Freedom took out any opportunity for me to ever be an operator again — those days are done … They know my face. But starting several weeks ago, I’ve been asked by a lot of very influential people, names you would even know, asking me to throw in,” Ballard said.

Tim stated that his newfound notoriety due to the movie had precluded him from reprising his role as an operator, and several influential individuals had discussed with him the possibility of running for Senate.

Furthermore, Mitt Romney’s confirmation that he would not be running again further solidified Tim’s decision.

Romney, aged 76, has a long history of political involvement. He was the 2012 Republican presidential candidate and served as Governor of Massachusetts from 2003 to 2007.

On Wednesday, Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) announced he will not seek reelection.

In a statement, the 76-year-old expressed his belief that it is time for a new generation of leaders to take up the mantle and make decisions that will shape their future.

Romney won his first term in 2018, after having served as Republican presidential nominee in 2012 and one term as governor of Massachusetts from 2003 to 2007.

The Senator plans to serve out his current term until January 2025.

  1. Here’s Mitt Romney’s story (in a nutshell). He drove businesses into bankruptcy, for “profit.” Talk about a “predator.” Read on… Remember a post about Amazon, Bain Capital, and Mitt Romney financially driving retail companies into the ground? Guess where Mitt got his start… Yup: Boston Consulting Group. This explains how Mitt Romney led “bust outs”. See, Mitt got his start at Boston Consulting Group (BCG). In 1975, he received a Juris Doctor (lawyer) and Master of Business Administration from Harvard University. Mitt was recruited by several firms, choosing to remain in Massachusetts (why Utah?), working for Boston Consulting Group (BCG), reasoning that working as a management consultant to a variety of companies would better prepare him for a future position as a “chief executive” (see, Mitt is a frustrated POTUS candidate). He was part of a 1970s wave of “top graduates” (i.e. “whiz kids”)choosing to go into consulting and NOT join a major company. Romney had his pick of jobs at the nation’s biggest and most prestigious consulting firms, BCG was neither. Its founder, was regarded as outside the mainstream of corporate consulting. BCG was disparaged (by faculty and students at Harvard Business School). But BCG was a pioneering upstart, fostering “can do” attitudes among its employees, who traveled around the country advising clients. Mitt Romney chose to start his career at BCG. Mitt’s legal and business education proved useful, all the while, applying BCG principles ex; the “growth-share matrix”, (a simple chart assisting corporations how to allocate cash among each business unit). Romney toiled nights and weekends, frequently traveling both in U.S. and Europe. Mitt was successful at Bain & Company (not Bain Capital, different animals). He then arranged for the creation of “Bain Capital.” Boston Company was a bank who later, in 1993, acquired Mellon Financial. Mellon Financial merged in 2007 with Bank of New York to become BNY Mellon. It gets complicated now: BNY Mellon is the world’s largest custodian bank serving: insurance companies, hedge funds et al. Bank of New York was part of the merger, it’s one of the oldest banks in the USA. Traces its founding to Alexander Hamilton, architect of America’s financial system. Without pointing any fingers, it’s easy to see how Mitt’s BCG would have the know-how and network to infiltrate a company and run that company into the ground “for profit,” Which Bain Capital did. End of story. Amen. Read A Bible. KJV. Psalm 128. 10 Commandments everywhere. God Bless.
