Real Clear Politics is Predicting
a Red Wave in the Senate

Daily Caller, by Evie Fordham

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/11/2018 1:18:15 PM

RealClearPolitics data is pointing to a red wave in the Senate this November, with recent polls showing key seats like North Dakota and Arizona going or staying red. RealClear currently predicts that at least 49 Senate seats will be Republican and at least 44 will be Democrats, with seven toss-up races. In three of those toss-ups, recent polls contain good news for Republican candidates. If Republicans do win in the four toss-up races where they have the best chances — Arizona, Tennessee, Nevada and Missouri — the Senate could see a net gain

The GOP has no reason why they aren´t adding 4-6 seats this November. The math was in their favor before the Democrats stepped in it big time with their Kavanaugh hearing fiascos.

Now it´s time to hold the House.

Thanks to our Democrat friends for keeping the GOP Establishment from snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

Why is two seats a wave? More like a trickle. Its nice to win but there´s no use in overstating it. They overuse landslide a lot too.

Chances are this is because the economy is doing well enough that the ´bottom´ 1/3 of the working class have jobs and the hope of even better jobs. This is according to Conrad Black. The Democrats essentially abandoned the working class years ago even before Obama won. The Democrats offered nothing for working people - other than food stamps and very expensive ´free´ healthcare. These people are now voting - they feel they have a stake in the political scene. They see President Trump as ´their´ guy?

I´m glad to see Nevada and Arizona are now showing the Republican ahead - if only by a few points. Hope to see Indiana and Missouri follow the same path. We´ll need some more R´s for the next Supreme Court confirmation - which could easily be within the next year.

Can see the Republicans picking up 4 05 5 seats in the Senate. Indiana (R+9), Missouri (R+9), Montana (R+11), North Dakota (R+16), and West Virginia (R+20) are all held by Democrats but have Republican majorities. There are also Florida (R+2) and Ohio (R+3).

Polls show the Democrats picking up 15-20 seats in the House, but many are listed as tossups when the district has a Republican majority.

Get out, vote, and make it happen! With their rhetoric and treatment of Kavanagh, the Democrats are imploding!

Need to push the idea of "we aren´t looking to resist, but to engage, to work on-behalf of our state, and find ways to help bring more jobs, good jobs, and results".

There are areas who will only resist, and they may find they will lose out to those willing to work with instead of resist.

Think of California, which only seems to be pushing the resist mantra, but will they end up losing out on deals, on jobs, and other things the government assists with ALL due to other states and cities looking to work with the current administration instead?

And, don´t be fooled by those conservative sounding House Democrat candidates, particularly those who´ve never held any political office, as they will forced to vote the liberal/progressive agenda of Nancy Pelosi.

I have been predicting a gain from 3 to 5 seats in the Senate in November for about 18 months. I stand by that.

The Kavanaugh attacks may increase that to 6 or 7 Senate seats gained, possibly.

I think Republicans will hold the House, possibly even gain seats. The long, historic norm for midterms when the House, Senate and Presidency are held by the same party is for the majority party to lose many seats in the House, often losing control. If we lose a few seats and hold the House majority, or even gain seats, it will be a big victory. If we lose the House, it will be, unfortunate, but normal.

Here is RCP´s best guess at what the 2016 outcome would be-Published on Nov. 7th, 2016. All their latest polling data, their compute4r algorithms, Larry Sabato´s best guesses combined with polls from overseas- all showed almost the exact opposite of how the election turned out.

Electoral College

RCP prediction: Hillary 323 - Trump: 215

Actual Outcome: Hillary 227 - Trump 304

So, if RCP is predicting something- Laugh. It has as much worth as used toilet paper.

The Russia Investigations: An Unfinished
Case Looks Weaker Than Ever
National Public Radio, by Philip Ewing    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 12/15/2018 12:30:59     Post Reply
Political and legal danger for President Trump may be sharpening by the day, but the case that his campaign might have conspired with the Russian attack on the 2016 election looks weaker than ever. Trump has been implicated in ordering a scheme to silence two women ahead of Election Day in 2016 about the alleged sexual relationships they had with him years before. That is a serious matter, or it might have been in other times, but it is decidedly not a global conspiracy with a foreign power to steal the election.

The Curse of The Weekly Standard

In the Donald Trump era, some liberals are confounded by their affection for a figure they would otherwise despise. He is known to them, after all, as one of America’s most enthusiastic warmongers—and the man who first vaulted Sarah Palin to national fame. Yet for all his many episodes of villainy, it’s possible to concede the pleasures of his impish company, especially when he breaks ranks to join your political side. His current career as a pithy critic of the president had led liberal Twitter to endow him with a grudgingly affectionate moniker: He is “Woke Bill Kristol.”

Former San Antonio mayor and Obama administration cabinet member Julián Castro is launching a presidential exploratory committee ahead of a scheduled January 12 announcement about his future political plans. “Some people might say that it’s early, but I believe you have to be decisive,” he told the Associated Press in an interview Wednesday, adding that he will spend the next month traveling and listening to people—and likely trying to generate commitments of support from key Democrats. “I know where I’m leaning for sure.” An adviser said the 44-year-old Castro has all but decided to throw his hat

The aim of the victims’ rights movement, which arose in the 1970s and has swept through every state in the union and changed federal laws in the years since, is often summed up simply: Crime victims have the right to be “informed, present and heard.” All these rights were trampled by Alexander Acosta, formerly the U.S. attorney in South Florida and currently U.S. secretary of labor, when he struck a secret deal with wealthy sex offender Jeffrey Epstein to shield Epstein from federal investigation and prosecution.Though Acosta was in possession of a 53-page draft indictment charging that the well-connected financier

During his fourteen years as Texas governor, Rick Perry was always a big picture guy who led the chief executive’s office sort of like Captain Jean-Luc Picard of Star Trek fame. Gather the staff around. Knock around options. Then the captain would declare: Make it so. This is a polite way of saying Rick Perry—whose name has been popping up lately as a potential chief of staff for President Donald Trump—was not a detail kind of guy. He kept competent people around him to execute his agenda.But he is not a micro-manger,

Ten years ago, Bernard Madoff’s multibillion-dollar Ponzi scheme, the biggest fraud in U.S. history, shocked the financial world. It soon emerged that a forensic accountant, Harry Markopolos, had been alerting regulators for years to Mr. Madoff’s fraud, but no one had listened. At Mr. Markopolos’s urging, the Securities and Exchange Commission created a cash-for-tips program, designed to encourage reports of financial wrongdoing and prevent the lapses in oversight that gave Mr. Madoff free rein. Today, an entire industry is devoted to surfacing tips from company insiders and expert analysts who scrutinize corporate filings.

George H.W. Bush wasn’t born in Texas, as the saying goes, but he got here as soon as he graduated from Yale. Over the next seven decades, he left an imprint on the Lone Star State that is matched by only a few. His legacy, however, may be defined as much by his quiet acts of generosity as by any grandiose act of statesmanship. Here, five Texans reflect on the man they once knew.

Robert Mueller looks to be approaching his endgame, and the press is alive with speculation as to how bad the special counsel’s report will be for President Trump. It’s also worth noticing how good Mr. Mueller has been to another president, Barack Obama, and his team. This benevolence was on display in the sentencing document the special counsel’s office filed on Tuesday for Mike Flynn. The former Trump national security adviser, we are told, has provided “substantial assistance,” sitting for 19 interviews that aided in “several ongoing investigations.” In light of this help, the Mueller team

Secretary of Defense James Mattis responded to criticisms after he and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave an intelligence brief to Senators on the murder of Saudi Jamal Khashoggi. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) have called out the pair. “I think the Secretary of Defense and Secretary of State are in a bad spot because the president has given this bear hug to MBS and to the entire Saudi regime, so they are bound to carry out his bizarre policy,” Murphy said during a “Morning Joe” interview.

   

 



 
The Global Carbon Tax Revolt
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 12/4/2018 8:00:29     Post Reply
France’s violent Yellow Vest protests are now about many domestic concerns, but it’s no accident that the trigger was a fuel-tax hike. Nothing reveals the disconnect between ordinary voters and an aloof political class more than carbon taxation. The fault line runs between anti-carbon policies and economic growth, and France is a test for the political future of emissions restrictions. France already is a relatively low-carbon economy, with per-capita emissions half Germany’s as of 2014. French governments have nonetheless pursued an “ecological transition” to further squeeze carbon emissions from every corner

Attorneys for President Trump asked a court Monday for nearly $800,000 in lawyers’ fees and penalties from adult-film actress Stormy Daniels for the failed defamation lawsuit against him. Attorney Charles Harder defended more than 500 hours his firm spent that rang up a nearly $390,000 legal bill for the president and asked for an equal amount in sanctions as a deterrent against a “repeat filer or frivolous defamation cases.” Harder said the fees and penalties were earned because of the extraordinary nature of the defamation case.

Donald Trump´s suffocating presence

Another day, another avalanche of news about the President: berating Democratic leaders on camera; unceremoniously announcing the departure of his chief of staff; calling his former Secretary of State “dumb as a rock.” It never lets up. Trump is a ubiquitous, suffocating presence in American life. It wasn’t supposed to be like this. The modern presidency is the framers’ worst nightmare, a flatly unconstitutional concentration of power. As the Trump era has made abundantly clear, the office itself — its size, scope, and prominence in American life — is the driving force of dysfunction in our politics.

Federal prosecutors in New York are investigating President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee amid suspicion that a portion of the $107 million it raised was misspent, according to a report. The Wall Street Journal states the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office is in the beginning stages of probing whether the committee’s most prominent donors made sizable contributions “in exchange for access to the incoming Trump administration, policy concessions or to influence official administration positions.”The Journal reports: The investigation partly arises out of materials seized in the federal probe of former Trump

In October, Warren released a DNA test in an attempt to combat President Donald Trump’s many attacks on her alleged Native American ancestry. The test results showed that she has a Native American ancestor “in the range of 6–10 generations ago.” But during a commencement address at Morgan State University in Baltimore, Maryland, on Friday, Warren made clear that she does not consider herself a person of color. “I’m not a person of

Going all in on attacking President Trump isn’t proving to be a particularly effective business strategy for media outlets. The Weekly Standard, a 28-year old neoconservative institution, is reportedly headed towards dissolution after its founder, Bill Kristol, devoted almost three years of work to attacking the President and his supporters. It’s not just Kristol. The entire world of clickbait Trump-hate seems to be in jeopardy, including sites that cater to the liberal base.

If we want to stop climate change, we’ll have to stop pumping out carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. In order to do that, we’ll need to replace all the sources of carbon pollution—like fossil fuel plants and combustion vehicles—with clean, renewable alternatives.

The Chief Justice of California’s Supreme Court announced on Thursday that she had left the Republican Party following the confirmation of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. California Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye told CALmatters that she had been deliberating her decision for a while but made up her mind after watching the backlash following multiple sexual assault allegations leveled against Kavanaugh. Christine Blasey Ford, a professor from Palo Alto, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee in September, alleging that Kavanaugh assaulted her in the 1980s when they were both high school students.

The Weekly Standard will be no more. There is no real reason we are witnessing the magazine’s demise other than deep pettiness and a personal desire for bureaucratic revenge on the part of a penny-ante Machiavellian who works for its parent company. There would at least be a larger meaning to the Standard’s end if it were being killed because it was hostile to Donald Trump. But I do not believe that is the case.
