Republicans will keep control of
Congress this year -- Here´s why

Fox News, by Guy Short

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/12/2018 4:27:54 AM

President Trump met with Republican congressional leaders over the weekend to strategize for the midterm elections in November and the president said he would not campaign for challengers to GOP incumbents in primaries. That’s bad news for Democrats, who had hoped a divided Republican Party would enable them to win majority control in the House and Senate. I believe, to paraphrase Mark Twain, that reports of the death of the GOP majorities in Congress are greatly exaggerated. Come 2019, I expect Republicans to remain in control of both the House and Senate. Read on and I’ll explain why. The left-leaning mainstream media

This good news and it better be true, or for the rest of DJT´s first term he´ll be fighting impeachment proceedings which Pelosi would bring on day 1 if the Dems have control of the House.
I don´t believe the ´fake news´ that Dems are way ahead. The ´fake polls´ they produce are way slanted left, and don´t take into account the vast middle which can go Dem sometimes, and Rep the next, or just sit it out.
This is not a time to back off campaign promises!

This is not a long term strategy but a short term strategy to keep Lyin Ryan, Mumbles McConnell and their lieutenants in power. Not challenging the establishments choices will mean we will get more progressive (leftist) republicans, not more conservatives. In the end (long term) this will bite us in the caboose. How ´convenient´. Thanks Mitch, Ryan.

Trump´s move not only helps keep majorities but...

...earns the gratitude of any incumbent who gets that kind of support. Think that will mean a less contentious relationship between the WH and Congress? I do.

Recall that Bill Clinton was elected in the midst of the House Banking Scandal and the Congressional Post Office Scandal... and with indictments just weeks away, he fired all 93 Federal prosecutors... and then had no problem with his big, retroactive, tax hike bill.

The Democrats are defending 25 Senate seats in 2018, some of which are in red states. The Republicansdon´t have strong candidates in every race, but they need to find a few PDQ. At least in the Senate, the Republicans have the edge in the 2018 elections. They´d better get to it so other won´t say they blew it.

Trump Approved Press Conference of Russian
Indictments to Strengthen Hand Against Putin
Daily Caller, by Julia Cohen    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/18/2018 5:19:54     Post Reply
President Donald Trump chose to have the indictments of 12 Russian hackers announced before his Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to a Tuesday Bloomberg report. Trump wanted the indictments announced ahead of the Monday summit to give him leverage over Putin, a source familiar with the matter told Bloomberg on Tuesday. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein gave Trump the option of having the indictments released before or after Helsinki, according to the report. Rosenstein cited national security concerns to allow him to share details of grand jury proceedings with Trump. Rosenstein announced Friday that a grand jury had indicted 12

If I had to come up with one word to describe Barack Obama, that word would would be "honest." As anybody who was alive and awake for the past decade can tell you, Obama has never, ever lied about anything. And as they can also tell you, accusing him of lying is racist. That´s why all the smart, cool people make a big show of believing everything Obama says and never questioning his devotion to the truth. That´s also why Obama can get away with saying amazing $#!+ like the following in public:

Stop Calling It ´Treason´
Weekly Standard, by Kevin D. Williamson    Original Article

There is loose talk of “treason,” and no one expected more from Jimmy Kimmel: He is a comedian and, as he has demonstrated beyond reasonable doubt, a fool—a reminder that “comedian” and “fool” were at one point near-synonyms in English. But there is no Lear-style wisdom in Kimmel’s dangerous buffoonery, nor in that of Stephen Colbert et al., only the cynical, self-serving histrionics of high-toned bile merchants with time to fill between the Buick commercials. We might be tempted to expect more of someone working in a purportedly more serious mode, such as Charles Blow of the New York Times, if

On his first day of work at a location nearly 20 miles from his house, a young man in Alabama said he was left with one option to get there: Walk. After Walter Carr’s car broke down, he was faced with the dilemma of how to get to his job site the next morning -- it was going to be his first day with Bellhops moving company. He decided to leave his house in Homewood at midnight, after sleeping for four hours, and begin the trek to the home of the family he was going to help move. Along the

Divers involved in the rescue of 12 Thai boys and their soccer coach from a flooded cave have revealed extraordinary details of the dangerous operation. A team of more than 150 worked together to free the group from Tham Luang cave, a 6-mile limestone cave system, in an operation that scared even the most seasoned professionals. New details of the rescue were revealed Monday night on Four Corners, an Australian television series, including how it was decided which of the 12 boys were rescued first. “It’s one of the most difficult and dangerous and risky things I’ve ever done, not in terms

Former FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday said “history has its eyes on us” and encouraged Americans to vote for Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections. Comey, who was fired by President Donald Trump in May 2017, issued a tweet urging Americans to snub Republicans this November. “This Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design that ‘Ambition must … counteract ambition,’” tweeted the former FBI director, a longtime supporter of Republicans. “All who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats this fall.

My fellow citizens: More than 20 months have passed since you elected me your president. Unfortunately, America remains polarized by that election, which was marked by Russian interference, FBI investigations into both candidates or campaigns, and questions whether some powerful federal agencies themselves tried to influence the outcome. We still have more questions than answers. Tonight I address you from the Oval Office to tell you the step I am now taking to ensure that the American people will finally get the complete story. At the heart of our democratic system is accountability. Inspectors general and special counsels and criminal prosecutions may

In the early hours of December 11, 2016, while cruising New York City’s East Village neighborhood, 25-year-old David Martinez and his friends encountered a problem. Driving down E. 3rd Street, the group suddenly found themselves stuck behind a livery cab. Noticing an orange parking cone obstructing their way around the cab, Martinez hopped out of the passenger side door of his black Mercedes-Benz in order to move the cone and squeeze by the livery cab. Unfortunately for Martinez and his companions, that cone had been deliberately placed there by the notorious Hells Angels Motorcycle Club, who have long called that stretch

Was Russia´s effort to interfere in the 2016 election the most important issue on the table at President Trump´s Helsinki summit with Vladimir Putin? No. But it´s not an unimportant issue, either, and Trump knew the American press is obsessed with it. So he knew it would play a big role in the Trump-Putin post-summit news conference. There are all sorts of aspects to the Trump-Russia affair, but in light of special counsel Robert Mueller´s decision to indict 12 Russian intelligence agents on the Friday before the Monday summit, the president also knew reporters would want to hear him specifically affirm

John Brennan Misses Communist Russia
American Spectator, by George Neumayr    Original Article

John Brennan’s anti-Trump tweets grow more and more maniacal. His latest tweet holds that Donald Trump’s Russian diplomacy in Helsinki “rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors.’ It was nothing short of treasonous.” That tells people all they need to know about the unseriousness of the left’s impeachment drive, not to mention exposing once again the demented malice behind the Obama administration’s spying on the Trump campaign. The unhinged criticism is also hilariously rich, given that John Brennan, who supported the Soviet-controlled American Communist Party, meets the textbook definition of a useful idiot for the Russians.

Donald Trump shocked the world today by showing up in Helsinki and being Donald Trump. In a joint press conference with Russian president Vladimir Putin, Trump was asked whether he agreed with the conclusion of America’s intelligence agencies that the Russian government “interfered” with the U.S. presidential election in 2016. The president’s (partial) response was this: You have groups that are wondering why the FBI never took the server. Why haven´t they taken the server? Why was the FBI told to leave the office of the Democratic National Committee? I´ve been wondering that. I´ve been asking that for months and months and I´ve

If you´re a conservative, a Trump fan*, or pretty much anybody else in 2018 who doesn´t like the Democrats or their agenda, you probably get scolded whenever you mock Hillary Clinton. Her voters are still very protective of her: "Why can´t you leave her alone? Why are you so obsessed with her?" Well, she probably wouldn´t catch so much flak for refusing to go away if she would just, um, go away. But she continues to show up anywhere there´s a microphone, an audience full of people who cried on election night, and a check with a bunch of zeroes

Former CIA Director John Brennan continued Tuesday to criticize President Trump’s performance at the Helsinki summit, saying Mr. Trump could have potentially risked intelligence capabilities during his private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the intel community might begin to withhold intelligence from Mr. Trump. In light of Mr. Trump’s comments about the intelligence community, Mr. Brennan said “there very well might be” a shift in the covert community to “withhold vital intelligence” in order to protect that information. “Dan Coats and Gina Haspel need to be on top of their game now and speak truth to power,” he

Chicago may soon become the largest municipality in the U.S. to test a universal basic income program. Chicago alderman Ameya Pawar recently proposed legislation that would provide 1,000 families with a $500 monthly stipend -- no questions asked. The bill already has the backing of the majority of city lawmakers, and Pawar hopes to soon work with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to implement the pilot program, The Intercept reported. “Nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t have $1,000 in the bank for an emergency,” Pawar told the outlet. “UBI could be an incredible benefit for people who are working and are having

President Trump has now been in office a year and a quarter. President Trump’s results when compared to those of President Obama at the same time are stunning. In every economic measurement, President Trump far out-performs President Obama. The mainstream media and Democrat Party continue to smear President Trump with the fake Russia collusion narrative. In doing so they also continue to ignore President Trump’s many accomplishments. When compared to Obama [and most presidents], President Trump’s efforts to shore up the economy are historic.

There is an American besides President Donald Trump who was privy to the two-hour private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin – a government translator who sat in on the entire meeting. Marina Gross, a State Department translator, was pictured along with Trump, Putin, and Putin´s translator at their Helsinki summit. Interest in her role has only grown, after furious critics accused Trump of ´treason´ for failing to push Putin publicly in any way at their Helsinki summit. It was after that meeting that Trump emerged only to engage in a disastrous press conference where he took Putin´s denial of election interference over

Melania, who is a few inches taller than the ex-spy strongman, also smiles during the handshake in an apparently natural way.
