Dems Want to Win in 2018. They Shouldn´t.
Real Clear Politics, by Tom Bevan

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 2/6/2018 8:28:45 AM

Although talk of a “blue wave” has been tempered recently by a tightening of the generic congressional ballot, Democrats remain giddy at their prospects of taking back control of one or both chambers of Congress in this fall’s midterm elections. They should be careful what they wish for. To capture the House of Representatives, Democrats need to pick up 24 districts now held by Republicans. Strong recruitment and campaign fundraising have put enough seats across the country in play for Democrats to bring winning the lower chamber within reach. In the Senate, they only need a net gain of two seats,

The democrats have their radical left base solidly contained. Everyone else, not so much! Hatred, lies and anti-American planks in their platform are not winners.

And here I read the DNC was on their last 400K, almost broke. And now Tom says they´ve had strong campaign fundraising? Which is it, leftards?

Earlier this week, Candace Owens, a young black conservative, was shouted out of a restaurant by a white crowd screaming obscenities and racial epithets at her and her dining companion, Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk (who is white). The police had to be called, and the mob shouted obnoxious slurs at the officers as well. Owens tweeted: "To be clear: ANTIFA, an all-white fascist organization, just grew violent and attacked an all-black and Hispanic police force. "Because I, a BLACK woman, was eating breakfast.

Bluto: Over? Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Otter: [whispering] Germans? Boon: Forget it, he´s rolling. And it´s not over now! They may not be as articulate as Bluto from "Animal House," but America´s Republican loyalists—particularly the #MAGA hat crowd—want the rest of the country to know that they don´t accept the predictions of certain electoral doom this November. And it turns out they have some data to keep their hopes alive. You just have to look really hard to find it. At first glance, the topline numbers look terrible for President Trump and his party: The president´s approval is an underwhelming 43




Don´t let Big Tech become Big Brother

Big tech has made a big mistake. Swept up in a wave of political correctness and the fallout from the Russia investigation, many of the largest online platforms have embarked upon a fruitless adventure in censorship that can only further divide rather than unite the nation. These internet companies have lost sight of the most basic principle underlying the First Amendment, that no matter how uncomfortable it makes us, we must put our trust in the power of a free market of ideas. I have never read anything by Alex Jones or InfoWars, nor have any desire to read any of

Cranky judge, flawed witness

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team of prosecutors have spent several days building what many legal experts consider a slam-dunk case against President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort. But it has been surprisingly hard going at times, and as they prepare to rest their case as early as Thursday, they bear battle wounds that Manafort’s lawyers are sure to exploit as they mount their defense.Even as Mueller’s team methodically piled up evidence of Manafort’s alleged tax and bank fraud, jurors have seen the special counsel’s case hit some potholes. Most notably, Manafort’s attorneys have painted the prosecution’s star witness, Rick Gates,

If President Trump´s re-election prospects hinge on the success of his economic policies, his prospects for 2020 look pretty good right now, a new IBD/TIPP Poll suggests. Americans aren´t just more optimistic, but groups not known to be Trump-friendly in their politics are among the most optimistic of all.We noted in an earlier piece that the U.S. seems to have undergone a significant mood shift, with the share of Americans saying they´re optimistic about the direction of the country rising above 50 for the first time since January 2005. Along with that, the Presidential Leadership Index jumped 3.2% to 45.7

Why it’s time for Trump to

You return from a great vacation and POW — reality hits like a punch in the nose. And that’s not counting the hassle of New York airports and traffic. The pain begins when you remember that the hapless Jeff Sessions is still the attorney general of the United States. It sharpens with the realization that Rod Rosenstein, officially Sessions’ deputy but really the boss of the Justice Department and FBI, continues to get away with the biggest partisan heist of modern times. Rosenstein is guilty of three main sins. One, he gives his spawn, special counsel Robert Mueller, virtually unlimited time, scope

President Reagan once said, “The best social program is a job.” Today, thanks in part to the policies of President Trump, essentially every American who wants a job can get one, providing some financial peace of mind for every able individual in our country. The fresh job numbers are the latest in a string of economic victories for President Trump. The unemployment rate fell to 3.9 percent, hovering near a generational low. More than four million new jobs have been created since President Trump was elected, while black and latino unemployment rates are at record lows. In fact, the latino unemployment

On July 23, hundreds of students gathered at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., for Turning Point USA’s fourth annual High School Leadership Summit. The four-day event was a sequence of workshops on campus activism and student leadership punctuated by speeches by prominent conservatives, from House whip Steve Scalise and Education secretary Betsy DeVos to rabble-rousers like Sebastian Gorka and Anthony Scaramucci. Backstage at TPUSA events you’ll find facsimiles of both the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. Placed on a table with cellophane overlays, the pages aren’t just symbols—and they aren’t there for reference. TPUSA’s speakers and celebrity guests are

In Deeply Blue New Jersey,
an Unexpected Battle for Senate

Senator Robert Menendez’s corruption trial had barely ended at the federal courthouse in Newark, but his team was already feverishly working the phones. Within 24 hours, nearly every major Democratic public official in New Jersey — from the newly elected governor to influential state legislators to powerful county chairs — had pledged their endorsement. Mr. Menendez’s ability to quickly unite fellow Democrats behind him so soon after his trial concluded in a hung jury and even before prosecutors dropped the case seemed to assure a relatively smooth glide to re-election in an increasingly blue state, which had just elected a Democratic

Why the Midterms Won´t Be
Won by Playing to the Base

Most strategists and analysts say this November’s midterms will be determined by turnout. According to this view, whichever party more fully energizes its partisans will come out on top. New data, though, shows this common wisdom has it exactly backward. It’s the voters who sit between the two parties, not the party bases, who will choose which party wins. That’s a surprising finding from the most recent Democracy Fund Voter Study Group poll. This biannual poll, which asks thousands of Americans their views on issues, personalities and voting intentions, has been querying the same people their views going back to 2011

Recently Politico reporter Marc Caputo was angered at rude hecklers at a Trump rally who booed beleaguered CNN correspondent Jim Acosta. So Caputo tweeted of them, “If you put everyone’s mouths together in this video, you’d get a full set of teeth.” Politico had not employed such a crass journalist since before it fired Julia Ioffe for tweeting, “Either Trump is f—ing his daughter or he’s shirking nepotism laws. Which is worse?” (Ioffe was then snatched up by the Atlantic, which has an unpredictable policy either of excusing or not excusing the controversial expressions of its newly hired journalists.) I suppose Caputo meant

Two important events happened last week in the interminable Obamacare saga that explain why the Democrats seek comprehensive control of our medical delivery system and why this project must be thwarted: The Trump administration altered an Obama-era regulation designed to trap individuals in the “marketplaces” created by the “Affordable Care Act.” The amended rule will provide individuals access to low-cost health coverage, greater benefit flexibility, and the opportunity to escape Obamacare. Not coincidentally, on the very day the new rule became effective, the Trump administration was sued by four Democrat-controlled cities for “sabotaging” the health care law.

At the end of her monologue Wednesday night, Fox News host Laura Ingraham issued a dire warning to the country: "This is a national emergency, and we must demand that Congress act now." The national emergency wasn´t weather-related. It wasn´t a shortage of medicine or food. It wasn´t a cyberattack or terrorist threat. It was, instead, "massive demographic changes." What once might have been a dog whistle is officially a scream, voiced over the airwaves of the President´s favorite cable news network. It´s a sad commentary on Trump´s America.

Russian operatives have "penetrated" some of Florida´s voter registration systems ahead of the 2018 midterms, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson said Wednesday, adding new urgency to concerns about hacking. The state, however, said it has received "zero information" supporting his claim. "They have already penetrated certain counties in the state and they now have free rein to move about," Nelson told the Tampa Bay Times before a campaign event in Tampa. He said something similar a day earlier in Tallahassee but declined to elaborate. "That´s classified," the Democrat said Tuesday. He is facing a re-election challenge in November from Gov. Rick

In keeping with an old tradition, former President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama have returned to their customary summer retreat. The couple are visiting Martha’s Vineyard and have been quietly enjoying themselves on the low-key and picturesque island — likely to stay until the end of August according to the Martha’s Vineyard Times. The local news organization has much to cover. “Golfing, bicycling, and visiting some of the Island’s restaurants are among the president’s August pastimes on-island. On Sunday he reportedly dined at the Red Cat in Oak Bluffs. Monday night, Barack and Michelle Obama went to The Cardboard Box

Liberal New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman said the news media should work together and saturate the public with negative coverage of President Trump in order to erode his popularity among Republican voters. Friedman said in an op-ed published Wednesday afternoon that if the media emphasize Trump´s personality instead of news about the strong economy, it may discourage enough GOP voters from continuing to support the president and benefit Democrats. "Some healthy soul searching is taking place in newsrooms across the country these days over whether the mainstream media should be covering President Trump’s every tweet and rally," Friedman wrote.

Wednesday on NBC’s “Today,” moderator for “Meet the Press” Chuck Todd reacted to the close congressional special election result in last night Ohio’s 12th district and concluded the Democratic Party could pick up 40 to 60 House seats in the 2018 midterm elections. Todd said, “Not only was it that razor thin, look at the amount of triage that the Republicans Party did here. The Democrats weren’t really targeting this race. This was a special election that popped up when the sitting member decided to leave early to take a job. The Republican Party spent over $3 million just on

The Trump administration is preparing to repeal an Obama-era rule effectively outlawing a wide swath of popular lightbulbs, The Washington Post reported Wednesday. The Department of Energy is ready to scrap a rule broadening the number of lightbulbs that must meet strict energy efficiency standards set to take effect in 2020, according to a document the agency published on its website. The document was later removed from the site, WaPo noted. Former President Barack Obama’s DOE expanded the class of bulbs covered by a 2007 lightbulb ban to include bug lights, three-way bulbs, “rough service lamps,” and some decorative bulbs, such as

Dear Mr. President, “Would you take this advice I hand you like a brother”? It’s a song lyric from the musical “The Pajama Game,” but fitting here. There is a way you can hang onto your base, keeping them engaged, energized, without the constant Twitter assaults on those who criticize you for attacking them. If you lowered the rhetorical temperature, you might just add numbers to your support going into the midterms and beyond. (Snip) As one who admires your policies but thinks you can do better when it comes to your demeanor, I offer you the following suggestions I

“F—k hope,” because it’s “the lazy way out,” liberal activist filmmaker Michael Moore says in an interview promoting his new anti-Trump film, “Fahrenheit 11/9,” which opens in theaters on September 21. Legal means and exposing scandals can’t “save the country,” Moore told The Huffington Post in his vulgar attack on “hope”: “F--k hope. Seriously, f--k hope. F--k despair, too. But f--k hope. “Hope is passive. Hope gives you permission to let someone else do the work.

According to a report Wednesday in the Daily Beast, Omarosa Manigault-Newman not only used her smartphone to record secretly her conversations with Mr. Trump, but has been using her tapes to help shop her upcoming “tell-all” book.

The nail-biter playing out in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District got even closer Wednesday after 588 uncounted votes were found in a suburb of Columbus, according to county officials. The ballots were tallied and Democrat Danny O’Connor gained 190 votes on Republican Troy Balderson. The GOP candidate, who was endorsed by President Trump, currently leads by 1,564 votes. The Franklin County Board of Elections said in a news release that the newly discovered ballots had not been “processed into the tabulation system,” and the issue was corrected. O’Connor, who is from Franklin County, celebrated the news by tweeting red sirens and informing his followers
