Cook Political Report predicts
Democratic ´wave´ in 2018

The Hill, by Brandon Carter

Original Article

Posted By:viola, 11/17/2017 9:38:03 AM

Cook Political Report, a top nonpartisan election handicapper, is predicting a wave of Democratic victories in the 2018 midterm elections. In a new analysis, Cook editor Amy Walter says she feels a similarity to a wave of Democratic Congressional victories in 2006, in which the party took control of the House, the Senate and a majority of governorships during former President George W. Bush´s second term. “[B]ack in 2006 ... I argued that unlike the last wave election of 1994, the party holding the White House was much better prepared. Republicans in 2006 had significant financial advantages,” Walter writes.

Just because the nitwit bunch that holds the seats now are worthless, does not mean I am going to go for a nitwit Democrat that is worse. I am going to vote for anybody but an incumbent in the Primary and then anybody that is not a Democrat in the General.

#2 has the right strategery, if only Republican voters don´t get totally disgusted and stay home. Having a do-nothing post turtle in there is still preferable to having a democrat robot pulling the "D" lever all day every day.

The election is almost one year away, and given all that Trump has done in his first year, I wouldn´t be surprised to see his approval numbers inch up.

The Dems have even less to offer then incumbent Repubs. The only idea they have is more class envy, and that´s a non-starter in America. Americans want more opportunity and more prosperity. The Democratic Party offers none of that.

The republican elite PREFER to be second chair. They will still have power ... and that is all that matters. They have no interest in ´leading´. Just retaining orifice and power. Thats it.

Hopefully we will have some conservative choices and voters from each state will see that keeping the same person in office forever, just because they don´t recognize the other (R) candidates name, is a poor choice. I hope and pray we vote out McConnell and Ryan.

Nevertheless there could be a switch... for a number of possible reasons.

A lot of democrats stayed home last year because Hillary´s victory was assumed. They didn´t stay home in this month´s elections, and they´ll be out in force next year. And it won´t matter what the issues are: they´ll be voting for vengeance. The magic number in the Senate is 50. We´d better remember that.

Gently and sweetly remind Millenials and other dims that the same DNC and dim leadership that cheated Bernie out of winning the nomination are still in charge. This will help curb their enthusiasm to vote for a dastardly dim. Its easier to get them to not vote at all vs. vote for a non-dim.

Wall Street Journal: Bannon ‘is for losers’ © Greg Nash The Wall Street Journal´s editorial board ripped President Trump´s former chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, in the wake of Alabama Senate Republican nominee Roy Moore´s defeat, saying "Bannon is for losers." "The Alabama result shows that Mr. Bannon cares less about conservative policy victories than he does personal king-making. He wants to depose Mitch McConnell as Majority Leader even if it costs Republicans Senate control. GOP voters, take note: Mr. Bannon is for losers," the board wrote in an op-ed on Wednesday.

The Dec. 1 plea deal struck with President Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, marked a big step forward in Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. It may also have provided some protection for Mueller against being fired by the president—and helped ensure that his probe will continue, even if one day he’s not leading it. (Snip) Even if Mueller goes, his team is providing tools that other prosecutors or investigators can use to continue inquiries. Flynn’s deal requires him to cooperate with state and local officials as well as with federal investigators.

Special counsel backs out of bail deal
with Paul Manafort, saying he tried

Paul Manafort ghost-wrote an editorial about his political work in Ukraine, violating a court order, according to a new court filing from the special counsel’s office. The allegation was disclosed Monday as the reason the special counsel was backing out of a deal on bail with Manafort’s lawyers. The deal would have loosened the terms of house arrest for President Trump’s former campaign manager. Manafort wanted to be allowed to travel among a few states in return for agreeing to forfeit $11.6 million in property if he missed a court appearance.

Former "Access Hollywood" host Billy Bush pushed back against President Trump´s reported claim that the voice in the infamous 2005 backstage tape from the show was not him, accusing the president in a New York Times op-ed of engaging in "revisionist history." "President Trump is currently indulging in some revisionist history, reportedly telling allies, including at least one United States senator, that the voice on the tape is not his. This has hit a raw nerve in me," Bush wrote in the op-ed.

President Trump´s former deputy national security adviser K.T. McFarland told a friend in an email when she was on Trump´s transition team that Russia "threw" the U.S. election to Trump, The New York Times reported Saturday. McFarland reportedly wrote in the email that sanctions then-President Obama levied on Russia in response to Moscow´s election meddling would make it more difficult for Trump to improve relations with Russia, "which has just thrown the U.S.A. election to him."

President Trump said Saturday he had to fire Michael Flynn as national security adviser because he lied to Vice President Pence and the FBI, an apparent shift from the reasons Trump stated at the time of Flynn´s ouster. Trump’s changing rationale is a discrepancy that will catch the attention of prosecutors on Mueller’s team looking into whether the president tried to obstruct the investigation. "I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies," Trump tweeted while traveling in New York City for fundraising events.

Retired Alabama cop on Roy Moore:

A retired Alabama police officer said she was told to keep an eye on Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore back in the 1980s because he was known to harass teenage cheerleaders at local school ballgames. Ex-Gadsden cop Faye Gray told MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell that rumors of Moore’s liking young girls were heard on a daily basis and she was informed that he had been banned from Gadsden Mall because he allegedly targeted young female employees. “We were also told to watch him at the ballgames and make sure that he didn’t hang around the cheerleaders,” Faye said.

Former President George H.W. Bush is facing new allegations from a Michigan woman who said he touched her inappropriately while he was in office at an event in April 1992. The woman, now 55, spoke exclusively with CNN and said she was attending a fundraiser for Bush´s re-election campaign in Dearborn, Michigan, with her father when the president grabbed her rear end during a photo-op. "We got closer together for a family photo and it was like ´Holy crap!´" she said, describing the moment Bush touched her buttocks. "It was like a gentle squeeze."

A new poll shows Democrat Doug Jones leading by 8 points in the Alabama Senate race in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations against his opponent, GOP candidate Roy Moore. Jones is supported by 50 percent of likely voters surveyed in the deep-red state, while 42 percent of likely voters support Moore, according to the Fox News poll released Thursday. The survey was conducted Nov. 13-15. The last Fox News poll on the race, conducted in mid-October, showed Jones and Moore tied. Another recent poll from the Senate GOP’s campaign arm showed Moore trailing by double digits.

It was Bill Clinton. I feel like people are starting to believe and realize that I was truly sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton,” Juanita Broaddrick said on Fox News nearly two decades after first going public with her story. “All victims matter.

A professor at Boston University has proclaimed Christmas carol favorite “Jingle Bells” to be a “racist song” and is urging people to shun the jaunty tune. Kyna Hamill, a theater history professor at Boston University, recently told the Boston Globe that the venerable Christmas song has a “secret” racist past that has been “systematically” hidden from Americans as they celebrate the Christmas season. “The history of the song has remained hidden behind its local and season affection,” Hamill told the paper. She continued saying the song’s “blackface and racist origins have been subtly and systematically removed from its history.” (Tweet/Video) Hamill

Scandal: For 18 months, the FBI has been fixated on determining whether President Trump worked with Russia to influence the 2016 election. But explosive text exchanges between top FBI agents suggest it should be looking in the mirror. The text messages sent between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, which became public on Wednesday, provide a rare and illuminating window into just how rabidly partisan putatively nonpartisan law enforcement officials can be. In the exchanges, they called Trump an "idiot," a "loathsome human," an "enormous do-che," and said "this man cannot be president." When not berating Trump, they were praising Hillary Clinton.

Alabama is one of the most reliably Republican states in the country. The last time a Democrat was elected was in 1992, and no Democrat has won more than 40 percent of the vote in a Senate race there since 1996. The closest election in recent memory was in 2002, when Jeff Sessions won re-election by a razor-thin margin of 19 points. Sen. Richard Shelby has won his last three elections by 35 points, 30 points and 28 points, respectively. So it takes a special kind of stupid to pick a candidate who can lose to a Democrat in Alabama.

Democrats´ shocking victory in the Alabama Senate special election undoubtedly has raised their potential list of seats they might win. If they can win in the Deep South, they can win anywhere. High on the list of reach targets is Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who is up for re-election in 2018. Hillary Clinton did quite well in Texas, only losing by 9 points (better than she did in Iowa) — as compared to nearly 28 points in Alabama. What´s more, Democrats have a solid candidate in the form of Rep. Beto O´Rourke from El Paso. It is true, of course,

The drama between Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and President Donald Trump has reached absurd heights. First, there was that rather tweet from the president, which was not out of the ordinary. He accused Gillibrand of doing “anything” for campaign contributions. Gillibrand said this was a sexist smear, despite the president using that line on pretty much everyone. This all is part of the ongoing sexual harassment reckoning on the Hill and elsewhere. Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) is gone, and Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) has signaled his intention to leave…whenever that may be. Gillibrand has called on Trump to resign, as
