Above-the-ONT Election Thread: HAWLEY DEFEATS McCASKILL
RICK SCOTT DECLARING VICTORY (As Chris Stirewalt Stares At His Big Ol' Bellyhole)

Chris Stirewalt doesn't want to brag, but his vote analysis operation is really humming. His little team of geniuses did not call the Florida governor race even as Gillum was conceding and had the Florida Senate race as "TOO CLOSE TO CALL" even as Rick Scott was declaring victory.

He doesn't want to brag, though. He's just that good.

Older news:

DeSantis and DeWine win in Florida and Ohio.

An embarrassment for the arrogant Chris Stirewalt: Gillum was conceding the election before his crack team could project a winner.

Great work, Stirez!!!

One House Seat? Artisinal 'Ette says that the GOP has picked up a seat from the Democrats -- In Minnesota-8, Pete Stauber stole a seat from a Democrat.

Reports that House Democrats are demanding Trump's tax returns -- tonight.

Note that the ONT is live and below this thread!

24 DeSantis has a smaller margin than Scott, so not sure why they would call the one and not the other.
But Florida is huge. I thought the GOP would likely lose at least one of the two marquee offices, and both of them are critical.
Considering everything, this has been a pretty great night for Trump, regardless of how it's all spun.
Some money is still on the table that it would be sweet to pick up, but overall the GOP won.

30 The prediction that there would be surprises seems accurate.

This was most likely going to happen, folks. The good thing (as of now) is that it's not a massive blowout. It's bad, of course, but it's nowhere near the epic ass blasting we delivered to King Purpa Drank back in the day. We kicked his fucking ass, repeatedly, in the midterms.

You know, I'd be a lot more worried if we'd somehow managed to elect a cuck to the presidency. Instead we elected a bare knuckled brawler who knows how to fight. His whole life was preparation for this job. We're not dead yet by any stretch. Let's see what Trump says.

AND NO CRYING. DON'T YOU DARE FUCKING CRY. SACK THE FUCK UP AND LET'S SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

Aren't these the same critters who are telling us that women have an equally if not stronger libido than us men?
Well what happens when we men start refusing to have sex with liberal women. Refuse to date them. Refuse to even suffer their company.
They actually have a lot more to lose than conservative men do.

55 I felt for a while Dems would win House, so honestly not shocked.

I will say though a narrow Pelosi controlled House is an excellent foil for Trump to play against in 2020. A pyrric victory

And it looks like we have a comfortable margin in the Senate to get judges through.

And Florida looks like a sweep, and several nasty Red State dems got sent home.

So a mixed bag, like I was expecting

So anyway, Idi and I are on the run from La Migra, 'cause his Green Card was revoked, cut up, burned and ritually defiled by hyenas after the zoo animal incident, but we both really wanted to vote so we are sneaking into a polling station in Possumsquirt Arkansas...

All these black kids look like Bill Clinton. Funny, that.

Anyway, Idi said he thought that Mr. Hilter seemed like a nice fellow, but I told him I didn't like the sound of those 'boncentration bamps' and anyway Idi took one too many jars of Vaseline to the head in that Cuban homo farm and I told him to just write in Donald Trump on every spot on the ballot and everything would be fine.

Well, I voted straight (R) just to fuck with the progtard terrorists. Idi was having trouble and leaned out and asked for help. I just told him to go straight and he laughed and said he's never gone straight in in his life. I told him no shit, that's why he got neurosyphilis and his brain xray looks like a slice of Swiss cheese, and be quiet or we'd get in trouble.

Sure enough some election monitor minced over and hissed at us to be quiet. Sounded like steam escaping. He was wearing a Hitlery 2020 cap which I thought was illegal, but whatever. And then he stepped into the voting booth to help Idi. Well, I guess Idi needed a lot of help 'cause they were in there for a long time...

The election dude came out wearing a MAGA cap and walked away in a manly fashion, although as if his hemorrhoids were acting up, and Idi was humming show tunes. Whatever.

MAGA, and Fuck Democrat Marxist Antifacists!

Also Idi says 'Hi', and 'Hello Sailor!' and 'I can go all night like a lumberjack, call me!'

They're not even going to bother with Kavanaugh because it's going nowhere. By the time it could go somewhere he'll have been there for years.

Impeachment of Trump is retarded and will go nowhere with the current state of things.

Russia? That shit is over. Now that they've got the House Mueller is done and the next phase of obstruction will commence.

You know what I really hope for even though it's bad? I hope Trump orders the military to build the wall and the Dem House tries to defund the military to stop it. Let's see how far you're going to go, Dems. Do it! Fucking do it!

275 Something to remember when thinking of losing the House, as now seems likely. Republicans will still control both houses of Congress for almost two months, and a lot can be done in that time. If Trump starts rolling out indictments for FISA abuse and other Deep State corruption, some long-term incumbents may have to resign. I'm thinking of (e.g.) Diane Feinstein and her Chinese spy. Several of the fraudulent Kavanaugh accusers are about to be indicted. Were any Senators or Congressmen encouraging them to testify to things they knew to be false? Were they foolish enough to put it in writing? Then there's the list of Congressmen and (I suspect) -women who got away with sex crimes by paying off their accusers. Think Trump might release that list? If the Dems want to play hardball, they are likely to regret it.

His " " " " " f u n n y " " " " " remarks are all just stupid references to tv shows that fat people such as himself watched as fat children.

298 Really. What is happening.

Rep. Kevin Yoder Loses Kansas Seat to Far-Left Democrat

Kansas' urban voters have decisively rejected GOP Rep. Kevin Yoder, handing the Third District to Sharice Davis, a far-left candidate who backed the 'Abolish ICE!' campaign.
Yoder won the district by 11 points in 2016, even as the district voted for Hillary Clinton by 1 point.

Yoder's electorate had a high percentage of college graduates -- plus a large number of lower-income service workers. That combination mirrors the Democrats' upstairs-downstairs coalition nationwide.

So true. Pelosi is supposedly saying that impeaching Trump is off the table. She could be lying. But it not, the fringes that want his head GoT style will be TICKED. Dems are going to let their progressive acolytes down somehow. When they do we pounce.

Also, I was worried that the GOPe would squander the #walkaway momentum if we kept both house and senate, and disappoint them like they disappoint us all the time. The dems getting only a partial victory, and overplaying their hand, will hopefully be a good thing keeping all the new conservative converts fired up for 2020.

Sen. Cruz is great on stage in an open speaking situation.

And quite engaging on one-on-one conversation, as I can personally attest.

But he doesn't do "TV" to a bare damn, at best.

He has HUGE charisma on stage. And in person.

The TV medium reduces him to a bad late night comic joke.

It's not fair, but it is what it is.

I picked that we keep very R seat in the Senate, and we're still waiting on AZ & NV, although we're up about 1% in AZ, with about 60% of the vote in.

ND was a "given", as far as take-aways from the Dems. So far we also have FL, IN & MO, too.

So up 4 so far.

Still have to hang on to AZ & NV; still might pick up MT (which would mean +5, if all that happens).

I picked all those, but expected to be wrong on at least, for a pickup of +4. It's looking like an EXCELLENT night, with the Senate!

364 I really don't understand all the pessimistic talk.

Yes, losing the House could be trouble, but people hate the House of Representatives. It's always unpopular and not able to get much of anything done.

Plus, the House Democrats are the craziest of Democrats. And they're not going to have the kind of majority that can be effective...because they have an even crazier group that's just signed up and doesn't know anything about governing. To get a majority on anything, their choice will be to work with some Republicans...or the lunatic fringe.

Trump OTOH is a counterpuncher. He *has* to have an opposition to attack and blame. All these clowns will be perfect fodder for him.

I haven't kept up with the governor's races because of being so focused on the national level, but that might be something to be legitimately concerned about.I don't know, but keeping Florida was pretty damn big.

Knocking off Beto was important. The media wanted to make him the next Obama.

No one emerged from this in a position to challenge Trump. He is left with ridiculous enemies in the House, ridiculous possibly opposition in 2020...and a much stronger hand in the Senate.

Things could have gone so much worse than they did.

I guess. I thought he was funny and substantive.

I would go back and reread some of his stuff but I can't be bothered.

But, tell you something. A couple of years ago I found an article of his from like a decade ago about why he was against gay marriage. I thought it made sense.

Fast forward to a few years ago, he wrote something else about why he was now for it. But his prior objections still stood. Nothing had changed to prove them wrong or even outdated. But I think it all came down to feel.

So you are probably right.

Is this true? I don't know.

Here in VA, we had 2 open seats due to GOP retirements.
The GOP held both of them.
In one (VA-5, which includes very blue Charlottesville) the Dems spent a fortune. It was called a toss-up or leans-D this morning but the R won easily (54-46%.)

But VA lost two incumbent R seats.

I wouldn't call what the Dems are doing in the House "killing it".

They might win 30 seats, probably closer to 25. That's significantly underperforming what the President's party usually loses in a midterm election.

473 In the 1982 midterms, Democrats gained 26 seats in the House and secured a 269 to 166 majority. They failed to make inroads in the Senate, however, where Republicans held onto 54 seats.

Ronald Reagan went on two years later to win the 1984 election by carrying all but one state.

Why?

Because the economy did so well from 1982 to 1984.


I'm not saying history is going to repeat itself, but that shows you a savvy Republican president with a Senate majority can work around an opposition House.

Trump has two years to do the same. If the economy keeps doing as it has been, he's a leg up.

476 Oh well -

The House is definitely lost by a minimum 226 to 208 by my count divvying up as many of the later states - and with a few races to be decided that we should have info on (Nevada - wtf?)
This is an actual majority with which Nancy P will be able to pass things - they will, of course die in the Senate, and, Nancy P being an absolute retard, Trump should be able to use her, deftly, as a punching bag. And the rest of the country will get a good, hard look at the worst the Dems have to offer and probably be repulsed.

Had Trump not put himself in the race it could have been worse (we probably would have lost the senate).
This is not a good result - but could have been worse. The flood of $$ from NY and Hollywood and the non stop media "orangeman is bad" definitely did have an effect. Can the Dems sustain when the playing field flips in 2020? Who can tell. Dems will be emboldened and our long national nightmare of harassment by the Democratic crime syndicate continues. We could have put it away had the GOPe even made an effort to field candidates who came out swinging, but they did not (Brat - I am looking at you - Donovan in Staten Island - truly pathetic) - And the cuckservatives and nevertrumpers did not help - f*ck those guys in particular. That being said - the Repubs who remain are more Trump friendly in the House and we have upgraded the Senate with more Trump friendly and better Senators as well. Sadly - I think fake bomb man and Cray Pittsburgh Nazi had an effect (stopping clear Trumpmentum). That being said - this was not a blue wave election and had things broken a little better in the last two weeks I think we would have won the House too. Alas. Events, my dear horde. 2020 starts tomorrow. Once more unto the breach. Off to bed with me.

532 For those confused about why Idahoans would willingly vote for Medicaid expansion...

I'd have to look at it, but we had the same thing on our ballot this year. I bet it is similar. The defense for it here is that it closes the gap for people with too good job to be on obamacare, but don't have a good enough job to pay for their own insurance. Also, that we are paying into medicaid as a state, but our money is going to other states. This brings the money we are paying back to our state.

That is the line they are feeding us. Whether true or not, is up to the voter to decide.

Which gives Trump a certified platinum idiot staring 24/7 on CNN/MSNBC et al the next 24 months. Pelosi's committee chairs will be sending forensic teams to the Gulag to excavate pee stained bones of Trump's murdered collusion spies. With all the stupidity from the House being fed to the masses as legendary expert governance for the next 24 months - Trump will soar to re-election.

549 Redbanzai, immediate rebuttal to that statement on felons would be a racial thing. Yeah, they have a reason to distrust government, but that's going to manifest in more of a Democrat "fuck the police" fashion than a Republican "just leave my guns and paychecks alone" one.

I think it's a touch sunnier than that. Democrats did expect a larger wave, and they did not see the kinds of returns on their money spent that they expected, to say the least. I will take some comfort in knowing how much cash they simply set on fire this year, all for a sliver of House control. They'll have to spend even more just to defend their meager gains in only two years, and they'll be expected to produce something in the meantime.

599 Ace, sir?

Seeing as you're here tonight, and commenting, let me risk my very existence here, thusly:


You have a COB named Tim in Illinois. He posts NOTHING. He contributes NOTHING. He has a regularly scheduled feature, NEVER.

All he does though, is to contend with a not inconsiderable number of Regulars here, and ban them as is his wont, on a whim or will, but always for an emotionally repercussive reason which he can never rationally explain.

And in many cases, he BANS the poor SOB with whom he contends...or the 'ette... doesn't seem to really matter, anyway.

Point is this.

Tim in Illinois does not write a SINGLE contributory post TO the Ace of Spades site. Does NOT add to the Weekend Threads, or even the routine Weekday Posts.

In short, all he does is to hover 'bout the ONT, and ban poor, defenseless bastards like me who object to his abject and wanton bannishments to various other Morons 'n 'Ettes who object, otherwise.

And all of you HORDE, both 'ettes and 'rons, who see this?

Copy it, paste it and email it uphill to Ace, at once.

'Cause soon as I post this, you know I'm going to BE baned, by you know who.

Who, if were possessed by even the barest degree of proper humility, would let this post stand and face the harsh review of Ace, hisself.

But if whom deletes this post and bans me in the doing, then declares his own sentence against himself.


What is a COB to DO?

Ryans gone as are other useless GOPe's. Two years of confirming conservative judges (and hopefully another Supreme) will provide a bit of fireblocking against the left. Hard to tell how successful the Dems will be with prosecutions.

Ace, sir?



Seeing as you're here tonight, and commenting, let me risk my very existence here, thusly:





You have a COB named Tim in Illinois. He posts NOTHING. He contributes NOTHING. He has a regularly scheduled feature, NEVER.



All he does though, is to contend with a not inconsiderable number
of Regulars here, and ban them as is his wont, on a whim or will, but
always for an emotionally repercussive reason which he can never
rationally explain.



And in many cases, he BANS the poor SOB with whom he contends...or the 'ette... doesn't seem to really matter, anyway.



Point is this.



Tim in Illinois does not write a SINGLE contributory post TO the Ace
of Spades site. Does NOT add to the Weekend Threads, or even the
routine Weekday Posts.



In short, all he does is to hover 'bout the ONT, and ban poor,
defenseless bastards like me who object to his abject and wanton
bannishments to various other Morons 'n 'Ettes who object, otherwise.



And all of you HORDE, both 'ettes and 'rons, who see this?



Copy it, paste it and email it uphill to Ace, at once.



'Cause soon as I post this, you know I'm going to BE baned, by you know who.



Who, if were possessed by even the barest degree of proper humility,
would let this post stand and face the harsh review of Ace, hisself.



But if whom deletes this post and bans me in the doing, then declares his own sentence against himself.





What is a COB to DO?

I don't like it, at all. If people's votes are so brittle and malleable that they are affected by reporting on the same day then perhaps the whole universal voting thing is what ought to be looked at and not trying to muzzle press reports.

796 CA by my count:
(keeping in mind there's still a lot of precincts/ mail ballots to go here)

3 close House seats: 10, 25, 48

All three R incumbents, all massively outspent by D challengers.

10 is currently about a 2.5% R lead with 67% of precincts in.
Other two are close to 50/50

Incumbents lead in all other races.

Two districts with no incumbent: 39, 49
Look to be split 1D and 1R. Both previously held by R.

So probably +2 or +3 D. But it's still very early.

A few of the worst look to be going down: Prop 3 which was massive Green graft and Prop 10 which would've allowed a huge spike in rent control.

Other bonds got rubber stamped because they were "for the children" or "for the vets" or "for the mentally ill", but of course they're pretty much all special interest graft out of the taxpayer's pockets.

Also efforts to destroy CA farms continue, to no one's surprise, with the new "cruelty-free" certification requirements in Prop 12.

I'd love to be rid of the progs for good, but that wasn't an option tonight.

So let's look at what we got:
Slight dem control of house -> We get no useful legislation out of the house.
That's pretty much what we got from Ryan. We can continue to expect continuing resolutions rather than budgets, just like we got with Ryan. We can expect no wall funding, like we got with Ryan.
Bigger GOP lead in Senate -> Easier confirmation of nominees, so yay! It's not 63+ so we wouldn't get good legislation out of the house (which we're not getting anyway) past the senate.

For bonus entertainment value, basically nothing out of the house is going anywhere in the senate, so there is no reason for the house to be at all responsible in what they pass, so we can watch Occasional Cortex and Pelosi spend the next two years trying to out crazy each other, with the MSM chering them on, which is likely to get the attention of 2020 voters

So, I learned they move their asses when they get personally offended, and have skin in the game, and get disrespected by their colleagues, and people are calling their offices screaming.

Otherwise they are self-serving. So, if we need an upside to Dems taking the House, there it is. Also, when they had everything they kept none of their damn promises, so their track record sucks. We'll try this. Maybe it will prevent complacency.

I forgot the best part about the dems out crazying each other.

With such a slim majority, any statement votes that have to pass (and then die in the senate), have to include basically everyone in the caucus. Which they'll do because dems always fall in line. Even if it's insane shit like impeaching Baron from first son-ship.

1032 Maybe it's just because I live in Florida and work in a place soaked with hardcore Dems, but I don't really get all the Negative Nellies around here.

Keeping the House was always going to be a stretch. Running the table in Florida and Georgia is HUGE. Dems really, really, really had their hearts set on all those races. The face that we eked out wins in Florida and won fairly comfortably in Georgia is proof that 2016 wasn't just a fluke.

I'm not sure some of y'all appreciate how dire the situation in Florida looked just 24 hours ago. It was like 2016 all over again -- every Dem I know was preparing to pop champagne corks. They thought that with TWO high-profile candidates who were so closely aligned with Trump, they could easily take out at least one of them, and probably both -- and I privately suspected they were right. The fact that they couldn't shows Trump isn't anywhere close to as radioactive as they originally thought, and is actually legitimately popular with a huge chunk of the electorate. And the loss in Georgia just drives home the point that a hard-left agenda will not be the royal road to victory, no matter what the demographics say.

That's a big, big deal. Tonight was a terribly sobering lesson for the Dems that "Orange Man Bad" won't be enough. They'll have to actually work for it; they'll have to back icky candidates who at least pretend to relate to those inbred yahoos out in flyover country.

For the left, that's enormously depressing, as they were convinced that for the first time, they could run and win by being open about their agenda. Now they have to go back to the closet and dig out the duck-hunter camo for their candidates to wear in the next cycle.

Ex-liberal, on the contrary, if the Dems take the House, they will have done so against the backdrop of best economy in decades, unprecedented vile craziness on their part, and absolutely zero - zero - agenda (apart from insane crap, varying by locale, including abolishing ICE, Medicare for all, and similar insane batshit that very few support).

Suddenly, with 97% reported, all of a sudden out of the blue comes 25 Thousand votes - for Evers! No precincts reported out. No change on the visuals. Just BOOM! 25,000 at the last minute.

1100 "Decency" not a bit of fatalistic crap, just some actual understanding of the real world implications. Sports-like superficial and emotional engagement with politics is not serious. And it's not about Trump, or "his advantage"' it's about actual policies and real world consequences.

Thanks to the congressional GOP, Trump has had almost no legislative successes in key areas. That now becomes zero for 2 years, without the House, most likely.

Beyond that, that the Dems did not suffer historic losses is frightening for anyone who knows how desperate, disorganized, and clueless they were - apart from their insane antics of the last 2 years.

1101 I don't think Missoula / Helena / Billings have enough Votes to win it.

Msla is 66 to 33 for Tester. And each update the margin narrowed...

The other 2 are hovering at 60 / 40.

It'll be tight, but quick math tells me Rosendale holds on to de-seat Tester.

Maybe that's the weed talking, though?

Posted by: garrett at November 07, 2018 02:59 AM (G3+Pf)

1102 Well, let's review...

FL was supposed to be close. It was. GAIN
IN was supposed to be close. Won by 9.7% GAIN
MO was supposed to be close. Won by 6.0% GAIN
MT was supposed to be close, but the last poll I saw had Tester up 6%. So far, so good.
ND was supposed to be a gimme. It was. GAIN
NV was supposed to be close. It WASN'T. Seat LOST.
TN was close, a while back, but Blackburn pulled ahead & stayed there. Seat KEPT.
TX was lean Republican. It was closer than it was supposed to be. Seat KEPT.
WV was lean Dem; it leaned Dem.

On the whole, a couple of supposedly close ones broke our way; another was a squeeker; one went south.

Not too bad so far: +3. Jury still out on AZ (+1.3%) & MT (+1.1%).


Posted by: Optimizer at November 07, 2018 03:00 AM (hOOi9)

1103 So right now the Senate Score is R+3 (Gain IN, ND, MO, FL and Lose NV). Looks likely R will hold AZ narrowly and will probably lose MT.

Assuming the MS run-off goes as expected the next Senate should be 54R:46D

1106 For the love of Gawd, i swear people want the country to collapse so they can say "told ya so". Also, they don't have to do any work to prevent it since they are so fatalistic. They see themselves as superior. Just like the Left.

We get Trump, tonight was a victory (if you can't see it) and we still have Eeyores. You want civil war, you want collapse. It's contemptible. You might as well be on the left trying to bring Trump down. You dishonor this man who is fighting tooth and nail for his country.

No, we understand the Left has increased deficit spending by over 10% during the Trump administration. We also know that the only way to get out of it is by increasing economic value to tax it, and pay down the debt.

That concept of growing out of the tax debacle by growing the economy died tonight.

Because the Left are a bunch of whacked Commies that care nothing about this country. The last Democrat left the Congress when Joe Lieberman retired. Now it is just a bunch of Lefties. They are NOT Scoop Jackson or Patrick Moynihan or Mike Mansfield - they are Marxist or Maoist Communists at heart, or they are just stupid, mindless surburban white cocksucking housewives who know a hundred times more about the Kardashians than the Founding Fathers. In other words, the cum dumpsters of the Communists.

Look, Trump will hold them off for 2 years. But those 2 years are now wasted years.
In the meantime, the economy is going to crash bigtime in the next 2 years.

I'm a very conservative realist. Don't always agree with Rhomboid, but how he is wrong with anything he says here, I just don't understand.

The Dems have been in crazytown territory for the past year or more. As has their human tools in the press. Why they weren't trashed at the polls is unnerving. Crazy should have been slapped down, instead it was ignored or rewarded.


Legislation is where it is at, not Executive Orders. Legislation died tonight.

Again, I hope Trump finally gets a real Attorney General, and at least 10 minutes of the 22 minutes of every nightly newscast will be about FBI and DoJ officials being arrested for their 2015 to 2017 activities, only part of the newscasts covering all of the House investigations into Trump's entire life, and the life of all of his kids. Some D's have already shouted out tonight they want to review the last 30 years of Trump's tax returns. Guess many prefer Mobs to Jobs.

Because that is exactly what is happening the next two years. The Dems and the Iranians are identical in that they tell you to your face how much they hate you and how they are going to destroy you.
And then they go about doing what they say.

I choose to be positive. The new Golden Boy on the Left, Beto O'Rourke--or, as we call him in the 'hood, Robert Francis O'Rourke--lost to Cruz even with a $70 million war chest and a billionaire father-in-law. MacCaskill, who boasted of masterminding Akin's nomination, is gone, and so is Donnelly, one of my home-state senators, a two-faced phony who finally got what he deserved.

It's debatable but I think this election can be considered a tactical victory: the GOP held the Senate and prevented a wave, depriving Democrats of a much-needed psychological boost.

Judges tend to get rubber stamped. Most voters don't have a damn clue about who any of them are and just vote yes without a second thought.

No, it's not semantics. It's serious and important.

You hardly ever hear the left use the word "illegal" anymore when they are talking about illegal aliens. Nowadays, thanks to people who let them get away with the total perversion of the language, they just say "immigrants". But there are "immigrants" and they are not illegal aliens.

1195 Honestly, I understand the disappointment I'm seeing. This is not the normal Democratic Party - these people have gone completely off the rails. They're FOR so many things that would strike any well-adjusted normal person as downright crazy, that it's not funny.

Between that and Trump's practically miraculous accomplishments, it should have been easy to crush them.

Instead, we're celebrating Senate wins that have as much do with the low number of Republican seats to defend in this class as they do anything else.

If incumbent Dem Senators could be defeated, why couldn't Dems in the House be defeated??


Still, gaining those seats in the Senate, and the Governors in GA & FL are HUGE. I'd rather have that than an edge in the House any day, if I had to choose between the two.

Ultimately, I think the GOP in Congress was too timid. We had full control of government after promising we'd get things done if only we had the Senate or the presidency. Well, we finally got it all, and the GOPe pussed out and actually passed very little. That doesn't inspire the base (or moderates) and the left is unhinged with rage, so they're going to turn out.

Obviously I think it's a dumb choice, but let's think back to 2016. Hillary and the Dems lost, in part, because they had no real message, just #orangemanbad. What was the message of the House GOP? #DemsBad? #ThingsAreGoingOkay? They had a chance to be bold and make a difference, and they failed, so any legislative promises they made about the future ring hollow.

Decency, we absolutely know the next 2 years of the House will be shit on a stick. Sure, Trump was a gift, but not surprising, there are too many people who learned their history and voted for him to keep it. That was 2 years ago, and the Deep State Broadcasting Company has spent those 2 years screaming that Trump was Hitler. But what Rhomboid is talking about is the morons who ignore, or never learned history. I live in Leftieville and hear them repeat their false false nonsense every damned day. They have zero idea of the most important, life changing events and players in history of the last 4 generations.

Stuff like Neville Chamberlain and 1938, Pol Pot and 1975, Mao and 1966, Stalin and 1940. They only know the sex life of each Kardashian girl, false "carbon science", and other pathetic nonsense. These were the people that voted against Repubs and for the Betos and Testers of the world. Those same ignorant people voted by the millions tonight.

So, while history does not repeat itself, it does rhyme a lot.

And no, I am not complacent. In fact, I hit the target at 300 yards with only 4 inches MOA with my 30.06 the last time I went to the range. It was an out of the box Savage 110, not some custom built sniper rifle.

So this vote tells us that maximum resistance is the new norm? Is this how we are supposed to behave? Are we to form a Republican version of ANTIFA and take over entire neighborhoods while our camera ready betters act like we are just expressing out first amendment? Are we now supposed to hound every Democrat we can find from any public place we find them? I mean this was the tactic successfully used. And let's not forget that the Democrats were basically rewarded for weoponizing the DoJ. I guess that's the new norm too America. I'll expect leaked transcripts of all Maxine Waters phone calls and text messages early next year.

Let's go ahead and open political prisons now, because that's where the Democrats are going with this. Politics have been criminalized and America said go the fuck ahead as long as it's their guys going to prison.

I don't live there, but apparently Wake County put a (D) in over the 20+ year (R) because right before the election some diverse guy was yelling at traffic while pretending he had a gun, and when responding officers responded to the "crazy man with a gun" call the crazy man with a gun didn't do the first single thing officers ordered him to do to keep him safe.

He apparently resisted the hell out of arrest to the point where the officers were telling one another to smack the PCP/meth/whatever user on the noggin to try to get him to not kill anyone.

All on bodycams, and all make the cops look horrible while the PCP/meth/whatever guy was the victim for not just getting on the ground.

That dude won the lottery, though. After the trial he'll blow through his $15M+ settlement in four or five years and be back on the streets trying to buy another ticket.

I don't disagree with most of this. We are in a time where we need to fight back against it, not in a bloody war, but in the ways our founders set up. Too many people won't. They choose to repeat history, bcz they haven't learned the right lessons. It's not to be fatalistic and repeat it, it's to fight against it.

However, I don't see many people wanting to do that drudgery...calling and e-mailing. They'd rather talk about civil war and laying in supplies. It's easy. It is not brave. It's not hard work.

In the last 10 years a lot of people have seen their jobs and communities change drastically. Open political activity for myself and any like-minded coworkers is virtually impossible; we'd lose our jobs immediately, be blacklisted, and have our homes vandalized and tires slashed.


Then, having lost our careers - and paychecks - we'd lose our homes, being lucky if we could even get hired at $10/hr herding grocery carts.


I'm not sure some of you really understand the reality of this, or realize how many are affected. It's easy to point to the founders laying their lives and fortunes on the line and call some of us cowards, but you know what - they had the option to escalate things without a towering surveillance state backed by cutting edge investigative agencies breathing down their necks.

Decency, public schools for the most part don't even teach the basics of American history any more. How would you expect the under 25 crowd not to repeat bad history, if they were never taught it in the first place?
Andrew Breitbart was absolutely visionary when he said that "Politics is downstream of culture".


The Left has knows this for 2 generations now, and the Right is still trying to understand what it means.


In simple terms, the Kardashians daily actions have more effect on voting than any politician or party does. Until the Right figures that out and counters it, there is no chance for success. None.

Other than a tax cut that will expire and the judges that are the bare minimum of their job duties, what meaningful accomplishment can the Congressional (R)s that have held a majority for two years with the most conservative (R) president in our lifetime cite for us?

1303 Good morning Horde. I couldn't sleep so I lolled in bed for awhile, got up, showered, got coffee, and came here. It looks like my sense of dread has been vindicated.

People who are saying Speaker Pelosi and a Dem House can be a gift aren't seeing things clearly. I think the Dem leadership is afraid of their activist base. I think that base is essentially insane and they can buffalo the leadership into ever crazier acts. I think there will only be 53 GOP Senators and it will be impossible to get anything done, since at least 3 of them are squishes.

Maybe it's the fact that I'm depressed anyway but I'm deeply pessimistic about the future. 2 years of unstinting screaming has taken a toll; 4 years may lose us Trump, the only one who's gotten anything done. After that it gets sporty, and I'm too tired for that.

Wish I had soothing words, but that's how I see it.

Democrats did the bare minimum last night. They barely won the House and did so for those seats by playing a "neutral" Trump-like role promising things they will not deliver.

I still can't help but believe that too many (LIV/"Undecided") people see voting Demoncrat as something comforting. It's a Luxury/Vanity vote. "Oh, things are going good enough that I can vote for the Democrat and all their feel-good pet social issues!"

Part of the reason it was so close is that in the past 10 years Texas has been inundated, thanks to the Jug Eared Fuck's economy, with out-of-state trash from all the usual Dim shitholes (CA, IL, NY, NJ, NV, MA, etc, etc) where there were no jobs. And naturally they brought their socialist voting habits with them. This had a lot to do with the fake Mexican getting as many votes as he did.

And naturally they brought their socialist voting habits with them. This had a lot to do with the fake Mexican getting as many votes as he did.

1627 The sad lesson of this election is that no matter how vile dems get, irrespective of political assassinations, the rise of outright communism, the country will continue to have swing back and forth elections. There is no chance the democrat party dissolves and gets replaced with a sane party. They will take back power sooner or later.

Reps will not launch a civil war while in power. Dems would be incredibly foolish to do so while out of power.

I figure 6 more trump years, maybe another 4 rep, 8 dem,8 rep, 4 to 8 more dem years and we're venezuela or cuba in that last set. So 26 to 34 years before civil war.
