The Morning Report - 11/7/18

madhouse.jpg

Good morning kids. Wednesday and as I'm sure you're all aware it's a bit of a mixed bag this morning in the wake of the 2018 Midterms. On the plus side, the GOP had a huge victory in the Senate as we were able to kick to the curb four lousy Democrats and increase our majority in the upper chamber. On the down side, we lost control of the House and there is no getting around the fact that the next two years of having insane criminals and scum like Pelosi, Waters, Schiff, Cummings and Nadler doing their worst to just sabotage the Trump agenda along with attempting to corrupt as many on our side in the interest of "bipartisanship." And Loopy Ocasio-Fiasco is sure to be a fixture with her brilliance and cries of "because, shut up, that's why" when asked for facts and figures.

As I mentioned yesterday, the 40-odd incumbent Republicans deciding to retire made keeping the lower chamber that much more difficult. But for me, the blame for losing the majority I think rests squarely on the shoulders of Paul Ryno and the other establishmentarians for sabotaging the Obamacare repeal (granted, McStains' thumbs down didn't help on the watered down repeal in the Senate either) and more importantly the lack of funding for the Border Wall. They had two full years to work with this President and advance the cause. And instead hemmed, hawed and criticized his "tone." A hearty and heartfelt "fuck you" to Ryan and all the others like him who are out the door. On a positive note, we managed to keep several key House seats that the Dems considered crucial, so there is that.

On the positive side of the ledger, wow. McAssKill, Heitkamp, and Donnelly were kicked to the curb along with Bill Nelson who loses by a red nether hair. Also, Jon Tester is either on the brink or is out in Montana. Stay tuned for that. Unfortunately we didn't get rid of Joe's Man-Chin which I thought was going to happen, nor Menendez which was seemingly closer than one would've thought given it's Jersey. Of significance was "Mickey" O'Rourke going down in Texas where Democrats wasted millions of dollars that otherwise might've been better spent elsewhere. That race was a lot closer than it should've been given that it's Texas and O'Rourke was running to Left of Ocasio-Fiasco. Squish Dean Heller didn't survive in Nevada but that state is controlled by the Lefty unions in Vegas and Reno. And although anti-Trump RINO Mitt Romney won in Utah, I predict he is going to be a huge pain in the ass for the next 6 years. Crucially, with a few more "Willie Cicci seats" in the Senate, that might not be a big deal should it come time for another SCOTUS nominee or two. And speaking of which, in the last analysis, the Dems have no one other than themselves to blame for losing the Senate because they decided to attempt to destroy Brett Kavanaugh and only wound up exposing themselves to the nation. Too bad it didn't extend to House candidates but it is what it is.

Lastly, in gubernatorial races, first and most upsetting is that Scott Walker who has done so much to turn around the fortunes of Wisconsin, and the subject of non-stop Democrat Leftist persecutions, recall elections, prosecutorial malfeasance and every smear you can imagine, came up short in his re-election bid. He's a good man and was a great governor. I hope we hear from him in the future. But the two marquee races in Florida and Georgia saw Ron DeSantis beating the corrupt, anti-semitic Marxist Andrew Gillum and by all indications Brian Kemp has defeated Stacey "Tanks A Lot" Abrams in Georgia although as of this morning she is refusing to concede. If it's close enough for a recall, G-d forbid, I fully expect Stewart Smalley's Buick LeSabre to be coming out of the garage. Stay tuned.

There are also other midterm-related items salted throughout other categories, most notably in Immigration so look for those. Moving on to that category, while both sides are looking at what happened yesterday to claim the high ground of the issue, a couple of links about birthright citizenship, the claims that violence at home is fueling the invaders doesn't jibe with statistics, an increase in real Christian refugees from the Middle East where they are in actual peril and a nice young man who was turning his life around exemplifies the Middle Easterners Obama let in in droves. Feh.

In Fake News fakery, renowned plagiarist and spinster Maureen Dowd has the cure for the Dems in 2020: Gary Hart, and the MFM propagandists were not happy about last night, despite what happened in the House.

At the foreign desk, the Chi-Coms caved on trade and tariffs or did they, and Marine LePen's party overtakes Macron's in the latest French EU election poll. Meh, it's France.

Domestically, little by little Jews are moving away from grabbing guns to embracing guns in the wake of Pittsburgh and bans on "assault weapons" are political poison to most Americans, a warm welcome to the new Joo-hating, sharia-pimping Muzzy congressmen, Brett Kavanaugh is set to hear his first death penalty case, half the voters polled think Mueller is conducting a political witch hunt, Judicial Watch has sued to get the info on Hillary's security clearance revocation, can a Dem-controlled House sabotage Trumponomics, the big 3 Dem blue shit-holes are near fiscal collapse because of pensions (shocking, I know), pro-life ballot measures win in 3 states, NYC schools are a freaking disaster, and Colorado voters show signs of sanity in preventing oil and gas drilling from being shut down.

From hither and yon, Hollywood heads explode over yesterday's results, Paul Rodriguez outs himself as a Republican and probably destroys his career in the process, psychiatrists proclaiming PDT mentally ill can go DIAF, and lastly a sobering essay on how ignorance fuels the divisions and drives us to doom. In that vein, a final observation; while on a granular level it is obvious that the Democrat Party is now openly and proudly calling for Socialism and the end of America as founded by any means necessary, the fact that scum like Abrams, Gillum, Fiasco and Keith "X" are its leadership and future and that Louis Farrakhan is openly embraced or at best ignored, is a very frightening and sobering thought. Nancy Palsi's dentures spout platitudes of "bi-partisanship" while at the same time she insists that we either surrender or die. Yes, that is what she means by "collateral damage." All of this rot begins and ends in the schools. If we are to have any chance of even beginning to reverse course, then that is where the battle is going to be. Out of the spotlight, but going on every minute of every day our kids are exposed to the brainwashers from pre-school to post-grad. Something has got to change and that is where it's got to happen.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

    I had thought Republicans actually did okay this cycle, limiting losses in the house and gaining in the senate. Just saw a map of the US showing governor races, though, and it appears the Dems flipped 7 Republican governorships. That's pretty depressing. I assume we'll win Kansas back, but Wisconsin, Michigan, Nevada, and Maine are probably gone for a while

    23 Brian Kemp has defeated Stacey "Tanks A Lot" Abrams in Georgia although
    as of this morning she is refusing to concede. If it's close enough for a
    recall, G-d forbid, I fully expect Stewart Smalley's Buick LeSabre to
    be coming out of the garage. Stay tuned.



    It does my heart good to see that the commie running for gov of GA has lost big time even though they are still not calling several counties for some reason even though Kemp is ahead in all of them. I suspect there is a major effort at trunk voting going one. The commie is down by 8% statewide but has still not conceded. But the big thing, the MFM 'Blue Wave' never occurred. And now the communists in the House can impeach Trump with a simple majority vote as they have been calling for and oh how they are cackling now. But unless they get a shit-ton of of DIABLOs and RINOs in the Senate they can not convict.


    http://tinyurl.com/y7ztyvbq



    Update at 0600: Some of those uncalled counties in GA in which the Republican was ahead have been called now and have switched to the Democrat communist. So evidently the trunks have been opened. There are three counties still uncalled and the statewide margin for Republican win is down to 2%. I'm sure the commie will call for endless recounts and that fraud will be rampant. Anytime a Republican win is less that 5% that puts it within the fraud margin for Democrats. The commie thinks that Kemp's margin will be driven down to < 50% thus triggering a runoff even when he is currently winning in those counties that have not been called yet. The trunk keys are coming out.

    Hope everyone made it through last night. Overall, things went worse than I'd hoped, but better than I'd feared.

    I don't think Democrats gaining the House is substantial enough that they can derail the important parts of Trump's agenda, and I also think that they gained enough that they're not going to learn any lesson in terms of reaching out to voters. So the silver lining for last night is probably that we're going to get two years of some nice juicy soundbites of Democrat politicians saying really stupid stuff because they elected some really stupid people along with the continued reality of the economy improving and the country tangibly getting better for people. I think this bodes well for 2020.

    Split Decision Republicans keep the Senate, Democrats take the House




    It looks like the Republican has won the AZ Senate race to replace DIABLO Flake but nobody has called it yet because there are more votes to be counted and the margin is close to 1%. The pundits are saying the Republicans have 'retained control of the Senate' by defeating McCaskell but what they are not saying is that they have more effective control because both Flake and McShitty are now gone which was just about the same as turning two other Democrats.

    You're wrong, J.J.

    You are looking at it from your perspective.. you seem to think we lost because Repub voters were not enthused enough because of squishes like Ryan not being hard enough. GOP voters came out in record numbers anyway.

    The opposition was fired up.. AGAINST the repeal attempts.. against attempts to get rid of pre-existing conditions on health insurance.. and, yes, against Trump.

    No it doesn't. The democrats were elected because of their non-stop attacks on Trump.

    And the GOP doesn't 'control' the Senate either. The democrats control the media, and the media controls the Senate. The GOP doesn't like bad press and will do anything to avoid it.

    The last two years the Democrats have been up front about who they are and the people responded. This was a turnout election. They'll continue whining about the "National Popular Vote" and stupid people will continue buying into that. I have to admit that I don't feel good about the future, at all.

    65 I hate to say it, but the conventional wisdom was pretty much right this time.

    Steyn made a good point, that we're going to see puddles instead of waves for some time, because each party is pretty much writing off huge parts of the country. Unfortunately, he didn't develop that. But it's really just he development of Rove's strategy, which I disliked at the time. It was always about one race, with no look to the future.

    Also, I'm dead serious, there should be a boycott of Fox, with demands that people like Stirewalt be fired, and a public apology given. The early call was much worse than talking about blackface. Screw 'em. They're dead to me.

    76 Spot on analysis and summary of the midterms, JJ.

    JJS: "All of this rot begins and ends in the schools. If we are to have any chance of even beginning to reverse course, then that is where the battle is going to be... Something has got to change and that is where it's got to happen."

    It used to be that the pushback against socialism, Statist or otherwise, from academia came from home and its religious foundations. Alas, the increasing secularism of the populace is making that pushback much more difficult. So, yeah, the battleground will have to be proactive in the schools because the home isn't the stronghold it used to be. This is going to be something of an existential problem and threat. The demographics are not promising.

    And f*** Paul Rino in particular. He pissed away two years of the House to do something substantial and lasting. And he lame ducked his way into a minority legacy. His performance was poor at best. We're rid of him, but it's feeling pretty empty.

    Seems a little high for a midterm, and we had over 110 people in line when we opened at 7:00am.

    It looks like the Republican has won the AZ Senate race to replace DIABLO Flake but nobody has called it yet because there are more votes to be counted and the margin is close to 1%.
    __________________

    But on the plus side, AZ overwhelmingly defeated the Tom Steyer-backed ballot initiative to Californicate our energy prices and mandate the use of "sustainable" energy, regardless of cost or efficiency.

    Despite Steyer and his buddies spending a record (in AZ) amount of money and plastering the airwaves with their annoying ads for the past year, Arizonans rejected his attempt to raise our energy bills, by a 70-30 margin.

    95 Vic, the last numbers I saw on Georgia were 100% and Kemp was holding at 50.5%.

    --

    How disconcerting that Georgia is/was this razor thin. There is no escaping some very salient points. Red states are being infiltrated at an alarming rate and those that the locusts are fleeing never revert back to anywhere near red once they're gone.

    I'm saddened in the extreme by the House loss. They didn't get their wave, but what difference does it make? Palsi will be Speaker in 7 weeks. Every time I find myself finding hope with the American people that we're finally awakened and realize what's at stake, I remember back to 2012 when SCOAMF was reelected, despite his wrecking ball to the economy and healthcare. So, last night reaffirmed again that people are stupid. I wish more than anything I could forget politics and not have to be so very worried, but those days are dead. With the candidates the Democrats field these days (Ellison, Cortex, Abrams, Gillum, Warren, nearly all of them) they are so far left that our American freedoms truly are suspended on a thin wire. Every election is critical. It wasn't supposed to be this way.

Out of the spotlight, but going on every minute of every day our kids are exposed to the brainwashers from pre-school to post-grad. Something has got to change and that is where it's got to happen.

    Absolute agreement. It really is THE central issue. I know about the others, but they all come back to this. Even immigration is strongly related, as whereas we used to try to teach newcomers to understand America, we are now teaching the native born not to. De-assimilation.

Remarkably driving w/o a license is not listed among the many charges listed here. If he had been in SC with his record his license would have already been permanently revoked. It had to be at least suspended here because he was out on bail for another DUI. This is the kind of shit that should be eliminated and not the ridiculous .04% BAC that MADD pushed.

    Many thanks JJS for bringing the news and the commentary as well to ace and COBs for keeping the lights on here for another election season. I'll be hitting the tip jar again presently.
    Fully expect Rick Scott to be sworn-in to his new gig in DC come January 3rd, but it certainly looks like the commies in Miami-Dade and Broward are going to try a hail-mary on "provisional" "ballots" and whatnot. Don't think there's enough - Scott's up by over 35K - but it's something I honestly hope someone in GOPe-land is paying close attention to.
    So I get to keep RINO NT-do-nothing Charlie Baker as my Governor for 4-more years. Swell. So he gets 65% of the vote and yet the (already greatly outnumbered) GOPe caucus in the state legislature shrinks by 1 Rep and 1 Senator and the entire congressional delegation as well as all statewide officers stay Dem. Thanks for freaking nothing, Chahhlie.
    Still believe AZ is a hold but MT is gone, though I'm shocked to see the total this morning still pointing to a GOP pickup. That would be sweet.
    Anyway, have a great day all and chin up - it could have been much, much worse.

    Turns out.... 33,000 or so was for the democrat... 7,000 was for Scott Walker....and 8,000 was unaccounted for....presumably for the Libertarian candidate....yeah, sure...the Libertarian candidate outpolled Walker in those ballots....

    226 There can be no doubt that a big part of the problem yesterday stems from the fractious nature of the GOP. Again, I am speaking from a local/regional perspective but in my neck of the woods, the R candidates who triumphed were quality people who ran aggressive campaigns. The R losers were in most cases people who had no business running and seemed to have put very little effort into their quest. I'm not sure what the remedy for this is but it's quite evident that the GOP needs a massive overhaul. PDT has made superhuman efforts at the top but it needs to go much, much further. I haven't articulated a single original thought here but just felt like venting.

    261 Well, I will say in defense of Texas Eeyores that The Horde constantly poo-pooed talk that the Cruznrace was competitive. Most here insisted that he'd win by between 8-12 points. So I'm not sure why anyone should defer to the judgment of those same folks now; they clearly missed something: Cruz won by about 2 points, which is a miserable showing. Whatever the case, he ran a terrible campaign, and I think it had trickle-down consequences. Take a look at the Houston Court of Appeals races: every one of those GOP appellate judges - 10 or so, most of who were incumbents - were defeated by relatively narrow margins. Beto turnout in Harris County likely accounts for that. Cruz's inability to stall Beto played a role in that.

    Gonna have to disagree with you there. Pelosi is great as the face of the Democrat leadership as far as the GOP is concerned. The nutless House GOP would be too afraid of being called "racist!" if they were to stand up to a Black Speaker of the House - they were worse than useless against obamama

    359 Some of Trump's agenda might be stalled but:

    The permanent middle class tax cuts should still move ahead.

    The House can't reverse anything.

    Trump can fund the wall with the Defense Department money he already has.

    He can move ahead on Birth Right EO, no choice but do it. The goal here is not to ram an EO through, but to get it in front of Scotus. Win--birthright gone, lose, no change.

    Intriguing question: What can the House get done in the lame duck session?

    The Senate map is worse for GOP in 2020 so RNC needs to get busy, and I wish Breyer and RBG and long and happy retirement. Long as possible.

    This is something that isn't being discussed, but the parties are in turmoil right now as a realignment occurs. NeverTrump is largely confined to Republicans of the Credentialed class, who have shared more in common with Dems of the same class for years. Hence why the suburbs went to the Dems in many places. It's going to take time for voting patterns to fully change, as people accept that they are no longer part of one party or the other. The NeverTrump folks have a lead in that area, whereas blue-collar voters are still at least somewhat inclined to support Dems at the lower level. My guess is that we won't see a full realignment until 2022, when we start to see a lot of new candidates who reflect the party reality on the ground.

    That hatred motivates people to vote. Whether we like it or not - what we love about PDT is what drives our enemies to the polls more than it convinces fence-sitters to vote for him.

    We can't understate the effect of the media as well. Their full-bore attack on PDT is converting the easily persuadable into unifying against him. Low information voters are willing to trust the media at face value - and when they're comparing Trump to Hitler on a regular basis - what do we think is going to happen?

    Uh, the GOP did not hold Pennsylvania. We were blown out in the Governor's & Senate races against incumbent Dems, and lost a lot of House seats. I worked at the polls yesterday - democrat enthusiasm was at obamama 08 levels. There were lots of new voters, idiots who didn't know how to cast a vote and some who even thought it was a Presidential election. They just wanted to vote against Bad Orange Man. A box of Rice Krispies will get huge turnout in 2020 so long as the Rice Krispies is running against Bad Orange Man.

    Ds had no blue wave, so we don't have to listen to "mandate" bullshit.


    If and when they go thru the subpoena process vs. Trump, many did not run on that and it will take the air out. you know the MSM will give it favorable coverage, but 53% of the people said Mueller was politically motivated.


    If there is an economic slowdown, Nancy will make for a very big target.


    11 for sure winners on the D side (already part of the house) and another 58 running yesterday (don't know how many won) said they wouldn't vote for Nancy as speaker. Given they've got 10-12 more seats, how does that play out? People go back and vote for her after saying they wouldn't? That won't play well in 2020.


    If I understand correctly, Lindsey Graham is now head of the judiciary committee. And it still sounds like he's pissed.


    We will confirm so many new judges, they'll have to replace the gavel.


    Even after capturing/flipping 35 seats, I believe due to 1) retirements nad 2) not supporting Trump, what do the NeverTrumpers do now - after telling everyone to vote for democrats? Support the D's in the house and their grave gets deeper. Swing around to support the stronger Rs in the Senate? These folks now have what they wanted.

    AZ has McSally leading by around 16,000 votes with 99% of precincts in. Unlikely now that McSally will lose. No recounts under AZ law unless the margin of votes between McSally and Sinema is less than 1/10 of 1% of total votes cast for the two. As of current count, McSally is way past that margin.

    601 The Florida Senate race is really something. The total spent by all parties probably exceeds $200 million, once you include third party PAC money.


    Nelson took only 7 counties out of 67, and they were tied in an eighth (well, Scott won Monroe County but it was only by a single (1) vote). Even in most of the counties Scott lost, Nelson didn't win by a huge margin generally, excepting of course Broward County. Broward is notoriously corrupt in elections and would be a fantastic place to send the FBI.

    621 Well an understatement to say that Walker's loss is disappointing.

    Not comparing him to the man, but its kind of like the Brits booting Churchill after leading them through WWII.

    Walker has done amazing work here in WI and really led the turnaround that saved this State from becoming another Illinois. Unemployment down under 3% and the people of the State started seeing more money in their pockets...and he was rewarded for this great work by a change for change sake.

    With the State numbers coming in I'm not sure is the State will be able to counter in future elections the absolute blue fortress of votes Dane County became this time. With their population increase its going to take a lot for the rest of the State to overcome...especially with the lower performance numbers for R's in the WOW Counties.

    Good run and we'll have another after the left turns this State into a money hemorrhaging shithole just like during the Diamond Jim Doyle years.

    I was afraid this would happen which is why I went pragmatic and voted for Cindy even though her ads sounded more like Dem's ad when talking how she is Mississippi's first female Senator.

    But I held my nose and voted for her because I did not want Mike Espy to get back to DC where he had served Bill Clinton as Sec. of Agriculture.

    666 First of all, some networks have not called FL Senate for Scott. CNBC says a mandatory recount is possible.

    Red states basically stayed Red. BUT - Oregon voted to remain a sanctuary state. Nevada has turned blue. In New Jersey, the corrupt Menendez slaughtered Hugin. NJ will have to file for Chapter 9 bankruptcy before it votes statewide for an R again. And in Connecticut, that might not even be enough, as Ned Lamont leads in the race for Governor.

    My home state of New York is slated to become California, as four state senate seats on Long Island flipped from R to D. Three of those Republicans were old dinosaurs who were terrible candidates.

    Many people got hoodwinked, in my view, by ex-military democratic candidates and the phony healthcare issue. If the Republicans had only passed Senator Bill Cassidy's pre-existing conditions bill, they would have done better.

    Above all else, the losses in purple suburban areas were a referendum on PDT's style and tone. He has a lot of work to do in states like PA, MI and WI. Even FL. In my view, if the Presidential election were held last night, PDT would have lost.

    I think Trump will do as he always does. Listens and takes what he can from Romney, and Romney will quickly learn that Trump can be funny and easier to work with than he thought. Trump is not the person he is portrayed. Unless he holds a grudge.

    726 About the Jews embracing the 2nd Amendment... personally, I wouldn't read to much into that; at best, it's a common sense reflex.

    The real problem for Jews is that somehow, the Golden Calf has been dusted off (who's face bears a striking resemblance to Karl Marx), and there are waaaay too many Jews capering about it.

    Until the modern analog of Moses shows up and smites the aforementioned false idol, the Jewish people are gonna be in for some rough sledding.

    2. The constant screaming about Trump Bad Man To Women worked. Women turned out bigly and it hurt bad.

    3. People like some aspects of ObamaCare. Not having a replacement for it hurt more than we probably realize.

    4. If a RINO runs against The Donald in 2020--and Jockstrap Romney is just the cuck to do it--it will damage him enough to make victory in the general election impossible.

    You may be right. The truth is, the Kavanaugh/Graham thing really ticks me off. Graham was all for comity and bipartisanship until a *personal friend* was unfairly targeted. It tells us who his "tribe" is.


    Not his base or conservatives in general, they had been physically and socially attacked for over a decade and he couldn't care less. Not other R members of congress, Scalise was nearly killed in an assassination attempt targeting his party and it changed nothing for him. Not even other R senators, since the attack on Rand Paul didn't change his opinions or actions. No, it was a (vile, and wildly unjust, but not actually *life* threatening like the others) social attack on a fellow Bushy and life-long DC dweller that finally got him upset enough to question his assumptions. In the final analysis, The Swamp is Graham's tribe and I resent that.

    California has already beaten their middle class and many voters who are simply tired of being trampled by a tyranny of a majority in their state. Connecticut is swirling the drain after trying to raid wealthy voters for their Free Shit Lout Army. NY continues to steal liberty and fleece the tax paying voters to finance their whimsical socialism. NJ just re-elected a guy who cavorts with underage prostitutes, is demonstrably corrupt and was censured by the senate- all for their personal politics.

    Trump is the only guy who can fundamentally change the party.

    He needs to break the black/democrat collective that has dominated over the past 60 years. And the way to do it is this:

    Hammer almost exclusively in a series of speeches that in the inner cities, only one out of ten kids can read or do math at grade level. Say that this is by design of the democrat party. Also, say that the reason black families have declined in wealth over the years while all other minority groups increased was again by design of democrats.

    Democrats want to keep blacks down in order to keep their voter base.

    Only by coming right out and accusing them of working against the interests of blacks can a shift be made of epic proportions.

    Like Trump has said: "What do you have to lose?"

    790 Cato, well i'm moving there , so I hope my families votes will help if we can hold the progressives out .

    of course progressives have been working mightily to turn Texas blue, but hopefully more conservatives move in than progressives.

    791 788.
    Thinking of abandoning my beautiful Florida. But where to go next? Texas is under siege too.

    792 As a recent escapee from behind Red-held enemy lines (Rhode Island), I take consolation in the fact that almost every one of the voting choices I made in Florida passed. The sole exception (that's right, just one) was a meh amendment. Having worked and lived in RI for 40+ years, this was the first time in my life my vote actually counted.Meanwhile the RI voters returned Whitehouse to the Senate. You may remember him from the Kavanaugh hearings - the boofus doofus, Farticus?

    793 cato, look, when I speak of the chains resting lightly on the youth, it's not in gless, but that they have already been trained or in the process, it won't hurt them nearly as it is for us that knew something of freedom.

    794 Rosendale still hanging on? Hope he wins. Tester is a pig.

    795 @Martell
    I didn't like the margins, but which vote went against your wishes? Serious question as I am a newcomer to Fl politics, personalities and issues.

    796 792 "As a recent escapee from behind Red-held enemy lines (Rhode Island)..."

    My brother and I just finished an upgrade on a house we inherited in Island Park. He bought a small sailboat last Saturday. We both live in Michigan, but will use the house in the summer.

    797 @792 oops - meant blue-held enemy lines. Who the hell gave them the naming rights anyway?

    Posted by: chuckR at November 07, 2018 09:54 AM (bRvKP)

    798 795. I haven't read the amendment results yet but I believe that felons will get their vote back. Salazar lost. I hope she starts prepping her next campaign now. Shalala is 70+ and has had a stroke. I dont know the results of my Fl legislature race.

    Posted by: Martell at November 07, 2018 09:55 AM (Dmogi)

    799 795.
    But I'll take the Desantis and Scott wins. Very happy for those two.

    800 Elections remind us why we need the Constitution, with actual limited government and individual rights that cannot be infringed.

    If our entire lives are governed by what 51% of an elected body decide to do tomorrow we are well and truly f'd.

    802 34 I'm thinking 2016 was a last hurrah for old America and now we're stuck with demographics is destiny. Welcome to the Californiazation of America.

    Yup. You're right. And as was pointed in J.J's discussion, what we're seeing with this election is the beginning of the fruition of the younger generation's education in socialist/communist propaganda.

    Sorry folks. But if we want to stay free, we'll have split this nation. There's really no other way.

    803 Just guessing here but it would appear that Paul Ryan has this year's Benedict Arnold award locked up.

    Yup. The party is over. These last two years have been relatively fun, but now we're going to start seeing what real chaos is.

    805 Not wasted, he's running for President and that was the start of that campaign.
    Posted by: Jabari at November 07, 2018 09:13 AM (6bys+)

    He's not a successful businessman, like Trump was, and he hasn't won a political office. Obama used the Senate as a launching pad, If Beto can't win his home state, what good is he as a candidate?

    806 NPCs feast on lamentations of Eeyores. NPCs not think about not having Senate. RBG live forever because Orange Man bad.(end program)

    807 Caravan UPdate:

    Reading article that the number of migrants apply for asylum in Mexico or returning home is up to 3,200. They say that still leaves 4,000 still traveling.

    As I've said before, if they have to continue their march on foot, this caravan could peter out to less then a 1,000 by the time they get to the border, which also happens to be the number of people caught each and every day by border patrol.

    808 I'm not mad, i'm just annoyed. Nothing the most leftist house ever passes will become law and enough work has been done in the last 2 years to mitigate any damage Occasional Cortex and San Fran Nan do in the next 2.

    Posted by: hurricane567 at November 07, 2018 11:15 AM (WvDs7)

    809 Not that Sessions was closer to a RINO than some, but Allred is "we need change". My take: he was dragged in by the Beto surge of Democrat straight party voters. Some state senators and reps got the axe due to Beto. Dallas had +160000 straight party dems over repubs. killer 35% verses 65% straight party votes dooms local races

    810 Yes, it begins and ends in the schools. That is exactly why the ultra-rich globalists have been using their tax exempt foundations for over 100 years to infiltrate and skew the curriculum toward socialism. They took over history, journalism and psychology while dept of education drove common core. Slowly Indoctrinating generation after generation, until they went all in on commie toward the end of Bush's second term.

    811 Republicans and demorats refuse the border wall, both sides are to invested by billionaire Soros to deny him his agendas. It's just that each party deals with the situation differently, the results end up the same. WISE UP, O YEE CLUELESS !
