Taking back the House will be harder
than Democrats think

Washington Post, by Karen Tumulty

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 2/7/2018 10:03:40 AM

Democrats are feeling cheery at the prospect that this fall will bring an end to the power outage they suffered in 2016 and the near-irrelevance they have endured since. Conditions look particularly good for taking back the House. Off-year elections in a president’s first term nearly always cost his party some seats, and President Trump’s historically low approval ratings are an especially heavy weight for Republicans. The fact that so many GOP incumbents are in a rush to retire is no mere coincidence. Democrats also have enthusiasm on their side, something that hasn’t been the case in a nonpresidential year since 2006.

Republicans better get their act together and make sure they are doing more than simply sending out costly mail surveys, and hoping a booming economy will get people to the voting booth.

The Democrats will be pushing every bus, every Uber, every whatever they can find to get people to vote, and vote Democrat.

They want to return to nearly no growth, they want higher taxes, they want to re-install the thousands of regulations to choke businesses again, they just want to control people´s lives.

Oh, and they want to ensure you never get another bonus check every again.

Ah yes, “historically low approval ratings” brought to you by the same Baghdad Bob polling that predicted Hillary would win in a landslide.

We will keep the House.

The story this morning is about Schiff getting pranked by someone pretending to be Russian, who offered Schiff ´´naked Trump´´ pictures. Schiff bought it lock, stock and barrel, and made arrangements to receive them!

This points out his hypocrisy in blazing lights! His credibility will suffer, even among democrats, for being so stupid!

The dems have nothing to offer other than "We hate Trump and we know you do too". If they didn´t own the national "news" industry that also hates Trump then they would be ignored by most of the public.

But we can´t get careless. We should have large groups of volunteers keeping an eye on cemeteries come this November to make sure the dems aren´t out loading up more "voters" than usual.

Drifting more than a little here, there should be a new adjective -- "tumulty".

In a sentence -

"Did you go home with that chick after last call?"

"I wasn´t that drunk! She was tumulty."

Another failed attempt by the WaPo to spread their anti-GOP propaganda. Trump´s real approval ratings are NOT low. Incumbent GOP RINOs are heading for the hills, not because they are afraid of democrats but because they have angered their conservative supporters and are now unwanted by anybody. New conservatives will be quick to step up.

It is a done deal.
Remember 2016? Clinton was a lock to be elected.
Trump had no chance. All the polls agreed. Clinton did not even need to campaign, her majority was so strong.
It is now 2018. Who´s President, again?
How´s that poll workin´ out for ya, there?
You won the White House in 2016. The polls proved it.
So you will win the House in 2018. The polls can´t be wrong.

Of course not.

Midterm elections provide a
surprising Republican opportunity
Fox News, by Newt Gingrich    Original Article

Despite the Democratic hopes for a “blue wave” to give them majorities in Congress, there is good reason to be optimistic about Republican chances in the midterm elections in November – and the 2020 elections as well. I think Republicans stand to gain four to six seats in the Senate. While we may lose some seats in the House, we will still keep control. I think we could potentially do even better – and there are plenty of reasons to support this belief. Every Republican candidate should pay attention to – and be very encouraged by – the recent Reuters poll that

There’s little reason to be surprised that Donald Trump canceled his anticipated summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. While some quarters will criticize Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Advisor John Bolton for raising the specter of Libya and the 2011 overthrow of strongman Muammar Gaddafi, the fact is that the administration from the beginning pursued a tactic of combining “maximum pressure” and accommodation. The White House never wavered in dangling both the stick and the carrot in front of Kim, seeing that approach as the surest way to avoid getting played by the North Koreans like previous

CDC Outs Media on Obamacare Lies
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article

Anyone with the intestinal fortitude to subject themselves to the legacy media will have seen countless “news” stories about the devastation wrought by President Trump’s “sabotage” of Obamacare. A typical headline appeared a couple of weeks ago in the Washington Post: “Americans are starting to suffer from Trump’s health-care sabotage.” This work of fiction claimed that the number of working-age Americans without health insurance had risen to 15.5 percent, a 3 point increase since 2016. But a report just released by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), says the real number is 12.8 percent: exactly what it was in 2015.

FBI must come clean on spy in Trump camp

It’s all of a sudden OK, at least in the eyes of The New York Times and other guardians of progressive bias, for an administration to spy on a political campaign. You can thereby stop Russia from doing its thing of electoral interference, they emphasize. Less on their lips is the chance of crooked allegations and turning our republic upside down. What we’re talking about specifically here is the revelation that, in the 2016 presidential campaign, we had this American professor over in England who was on the FBI payroll to the tune of more than $1 million over a period of time. Part of his job, it seems, was to query campaign aides in the

"Please do not think these are somehow radical, or unpopular, or extreme or fringe ideas,” Bernie Sanders tells me. It’s early May, and the once-and-perhaps-future presidential contender is ticking off progressive policy proposals—his policy proposals—that, in the two years since his loss to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 primary, have rapidly remade the Democratic Party: universal health care, tuition-free public college, a $15-an-hour minimum wage. When he’s told that some believe his ideas may be better suited to Finland than Nebraska, Sanders bristles. “Look at the polling,” he snaps in his thick Brooklyn accent,

“I am not afraid of an army of lions led by a sheep; I am afraid of an army of sheep led by a lion.”—Alexander the Great Some men walk into a room and the room just belongs to them. The head guy in the room. The man in charge. It doesn’t matter if it’s a room of five or a room of 500, everyone looks. It’s not a height thing. It’s not a wealth thing. It’s not about brains or brawn or what kind of car he drives. It is simply a matter of having “it,” and “it” is a quality that few men possess. Luckily for America, Trump has this in spades. It may be maddening to his domestic opponents in the media, but it is positively enraging to America’s

A Democratic Watergate is unfolding before our eyes. It’s no wonder Obama’s former CIA chief John Brennan is tweeting like a madman, attacking President Trump, House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.Brennan’s running scared because it’s starting to look like he may have been a co-conspirator in the biggest political scandal since, well, Watergate.

When the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that states could experiment with work requirements as a prerequisite for Medicaid eligibility, the Democrats denounced the policy as racist and cruel. They didn’t explain how such requirements could possibly be racist in states whose Medicaid populations are nearly 100 percent white. Nor did they say what is cruel about asking Medicaid enrollees to do something that will, according to numerous studies, improve their well-being. The science says that work will be good for their physical, psychological, and fiscal health. So, why have the Democrats declared war on work?

Krugman on Drugs
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article

When President Trump introduced the “American Patients First” blueprint for reducing drug prices, it was inevitable that the Democrats and their media enablers would immediately denounce the plan, the team that put it together, and the President himself. (Snip) Thus, it wasn’t shocking that Paul Krugman’s contribution to the chorus of complaints also included that shopworn argument. It was something of a surprise, however, to see that Krugman so far forgot himself that he let the cat out of the bag concerning why allowing Medicare to “negotiate” drug prices is such a bad idea.

Why Trump Is a President Like No Other

Conrad Black’s erudite biography of Donald J. Trump is different from the usual in mediis rebus accounts of first-year presidents. He avoids the Bob Woodward fly-on-the-wall unattributed anecdote, and “they say” gossip mongering. Nor is the book a rush-to-publish product from former insiders of the Trump campaign or administration. Instead, Black, a prolific and insightful historian, adopts the annalistic method in carefully tracing Trump’s earliest years in business through his various commercial misadventures, financial recoveries, and sometimes wild antics. Black’s aim is to illustrate how much of what Trump has done since announcing his presidential candidacy in summer 2015 is

President Trump, elected primarily on domestic issues, has surprised critics and detractors alike by putting a big imprint on foreign affairs in his first 16 months in office. Recent international developments — the president’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal and the moving of the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem — are only the latest significant moves. By contrast, Trump’s major achievements at home have been largely limited to the passage of a large tax cut in December and the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch as a Supreme Court justice more than a year ago. But in the international arena

   

 



 
Trump’s Excellent Plan
to Reduce Drug Prices
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 5/14/2018 5:55:17     Post Reply
Last Friday, President Trump caused consternation among Democrats and their media allies by introducing an eminently sensible blueprint for reducing drug prices. The 50-point “American Patients First” plan addresses four broad challenges: High list prices for drugs, government programs overpaying for drugs, rising out-of-pocket costs for consumers, and foreign governments free-riding off American innovation. The blueprint relies on free market competition and private-sector negotiation rather than regulatory coercion and price controls. And, assuming his plan works as designed, President Trump will have succeeded where his

The public face of the gun-control movement demanded $1 million Thursday from the Florida-based grocery chain in a tweet, just one day after calling for a “die-in” protest at its stores. Publix is being targeted by Mr. Hogg for its support of Adam Putnam, a Republican gubernatorial candidate who is now the state’s agricultural commissioner. The Tampa Bay Times reported earlier this week that Publix had given $670,000 during the last three years to Putnam campaigns.

President Barack Obama took a light swing at his successor during a tech conference in Las Vegas on Wednesday. His eight years in office were scandal free, he told the audience. "I didn´t have scandals, which seems like it shouldn´t be something you brag about," Obama joked. President Donald Trump’s presidency has thus far been racked with scandalous allegations, but Obama later hedged his barb.

Some NFL players are reportedly considering new ways to protest after NFL owners voted on a new national anthem policy Wednesday, reports Sports Illustrated´s Robert Klemko. According to Klemko, some are discussing ways to skirt new rules "just to spite the NFL." The policy removes a requirement for players to be on the field for the anthem, and gives players the option to stay in the locker room. Teams will be fined for any personnel that "do not show proper respect for the flag and Anthem” on the sidelines. Other journalists were hearing similar things from players they talked to.
