Democratic Blue Wave Surged
But Did Not Look Like a Tsunami

Texas Monthly Magazine, by R. G. Ratcliffe

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 3/7/2018 12:46:52 PM

That big Blue Wave that is supposed to carry Democrats to victory in the fall general election may be building, but on Tuesday it looked far more like a wave pool than a tsunami. With candidates in almost all congressional races and in most parts of Texas this year, the Democrats certainly showed enthusiasm, driving more voters to the polls than in any non-presidential year primary since 2002. Their early vote numbers outpaced the Republicans and surpassed their own primary early vote in the presidential contest of 2016. All told, the Democrats had more than a million people vote in their

Comments:
The Democrat Primary in my precinct was so empty the poll workers were talking to themselves. On the Republican side of the room, there was a line.

Democrat controlled fake news believes that wishful thinking might affect reality. How did that work out in the last Presidential election?

I got a big chuckle reading a headline in the Austin Anti-American Statesperson about how Demo primary turnout was so much higher. As you read the article, they only looked at the 15 largest urban counties. Statewide the numbers were even.

I don´t see much more than a modest ripple on a small country stream for Democrats in Texas. But they keep telling us that it´s just around the corner.

A timely "refresher":

Voters ignored the media in 2016, and Donald Trump won election fair and square.

Voters in Texas ignored the media yesterday, and averted electoral disaster.

Whatever our lying media tries to sell us:

just ignore it.

POP! The sound of the pathetically over hyped Dem bubble bursting in Texas.

Add all three Texas Dem Senate candidates´ votes together and get 78% of what Ted Cruz got just by himself, with four other Repubs drawing a bit from Cruz. Cruz will pick up a good bit of those other Repub votes, so it should be more like about 65% in the real election, if Cruz picks up zero Dems. Not sure he won´t get some Dem votes, too.

Dems make huge claims, but the reality is folks are energized by the President and real conservative principles in action, as opposed to the last guy from Texas and his "compassionate conservativism", which turned out to look almost exactly like liberalism to me, and apparently a whole lot more.

Well, the Republicans also broke a record, with 1,500,00 votes -- a solid 500,000 more than Democrats.

The "blue wave" and other crud is just liberal magical thinking. It´s interesting how many news outlets tried to push this agenda.

It´s so coordinated, I wonder if there is another "journolist" somewhere.

The lib media is looking for any hopeful sing, even a faint one that somehow Texas will turn away and vote socialist with their prodding.

They want it soooo bad they INVENT stories to say so when there is absolutely NO EVIDENCE to support what they say. Its so laughable and DISHONEST, but they keep saying it and saying it and saying it hoping the weak-minded will believe it and question the FACTS.

The republicans set a new record for turn out in a primary election--see that reported anywhere? hmmmm?

The FACT IS that Senator Ted Cruz got more votes in a five way primary race than were cast in the ENTIRE demonrat socialist primary race.

So much propping up for Beto. So much hope for him who is an open borders take away the 2nd amendment guy, but the numbers just were not even close.

There is no ´blue wave´. That might happen down the road as people move in from California or illegals get to vote from the public trough, but not for a while at least!

The Sexting Scandal That Toppled One

It had been two days since William Voge was publicly disgraced, and the 61-year-old globe-trotting lawyer couldn’t sleep. His family, his colleagues and competitors, everyone it seemed, knew about the sexually explicit texts he exchanged last year with a woman he had never met in person, and still hasn’t. The fallout scandalized the legal profession and would cost Mr. Voge his job at Latham & Watkins LLP, one of the highest grossing law firms in the world, where he was chairman. Mr. Voge slipped out of his $5 million house in Solana Beach, Calif., that night in March. He went to a

As Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination tees up another national debate about reproductive rights, is it too much to ask that abortion’s impact on the black population be part of the discussion? When the Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade in 1973, polling showed that blacks were less likely than whites to support abortion. Sixties-era civil rights activists like Fannie Lou Hamer and Whitney Young had denounced the procedure as a form of genocide. Jesse Jackson called abortion “murder” and once told a black newspaper in Chicago that “we used to look for death from the man in the blue

By picking Brett Kavanaugh as his Supreme Court nominee, President Trump showed that credentials and connections still matter — when backed up by results. One of the most scholarly members of the judiciary, Kavanaugh’s more than 300 opinions are read widely and influence courts across the country — including the one that he now hopes to join. There are few if any more respected lower-court judges. More important than his erudition is Kavanaugh’s intense commitment to constitutional structure. As Anthony Kennedy, the justice he clerked for and now seeks to succeed, often emphasized, this is vital not simply to the functioning

AUSTIN — U.S. Rep. Beto O´Rourke joined Austin legend Willie Nelson at the annual Willie´s Picnic on Wednesday night. O´Rourke, an El Paso Democrat running for Sen. Ted Cruz´s seat in the fall, tucked an "I Love You El Paso" T-shirt into his pants. Strumming a guitar, he sang "Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die" — a message on brand for famous pothead Willie Nelson and O´Rourke´s pro-marijuana legalization stance.

California’s Climate Extremism
City Journal, by Joel Kotkin    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/5/2018 11:35:23     Post Reply
Environmental extremism increasingly dominates California. The state is making a concerted attack on energy companies in the courts; a bill is pending in the legislature to fine waiters $1,000—or jail them—if they offer people plastic straws; and UCLA issued a report describing pets as a climate threat. The state has taken upon itself the mission of limiting the flatulence of cows and other farm animals. As the self-described capital of the anti-Trump resistance, California presents itself as the herald of a green, more socially and racially just society. That view has been utterly devastated by a new report from Chapman

Beto O’Rourke looks increasingly likely to be this year’s version of Wendy Davis. Remember her? The liberal darling who ran against Texas Gov. Greg Abbott but lost by a bigger-than-predicted margin because she just didn’t appeal to a bunch of Texas voters Democrats should be able to grab? Right. O’Rourke probably won’t lose by as much as Davis (the most recent University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll has him trailing Ted Cruz by five points, where Davis lost by about 20), but he has the same basic problem: he’s extremely exciting to rich, white liberals in places like Austin and Dallas. He’s

Whatever its larger meaning or impact, Representative Joseph Crowley’s stunning loss to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in last Tuesday’s primary election already has set off one tremor within the Democratic Party: It has thrown House leadership into chaos. Mr. Crowley is chairman of the Democratic caucus, making him the fourth-ranking Democrat in the House. He also was the heir apparent to the minority leader, Nancy Pelosi. Ms. Pelosi, now 78, has herded Democratic cats for nearly 16 years and has made clear her desire to stay put if the party wins back the majority in November. But she’s expected to face a serious

Now that the world has digested the Horowitz report, notice how much of the story it doesn’t tell. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is treated as a closed loop when, in fact, much of its decision making was based on intelligence and advice supplied by other agencies. Michael Horowitz deals with some of this information in a classified appendix, which the public can’t see. Even so, as Justice Department inspector general, he is not authorized to examine and dissect the internal communications and decision-making of other agencies the way he did the FBI’s. Yet the necessity of doing so fairly screams

Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly ‘snubbed’ the US President during his visit to Britain - leaving the Queen to meet Donald Trump alone at Windsor Castle. The royal father and son apparently shared their desire to not take part in the arrangements during informal discussions regarding the president’s four-day tour. Trump’s trip was not a state visit and so only the Queen greeted the president and his wife Melania. However even on working trips dignitaries expect to see more members of the royal family than only the Queen.

The indictment Friday of 12 Russian military officers for the election hacks against the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign lends a surprising new detail to the 2016 election interference timeline: The Kremlin’s hackers apparently still maintained a foothold in the DNC’s network four months after the Democrats announced that they’d locked the intruders out. Until today, the story of the DNC hack ended promptly on June 14, 2016, when the Democrats went public with the intrusion in the pages of the Washington Post, and Crowdstrike, the security firm hired to respond to the breach, published a detailed technical account. Today’s indictment confirms

Anyone who has ever been to a recycling plant is invariably surprised at how dirty and nasty America’s favorite green activity really is. Trucks dump the material on a long conveyor belt, where a few dozen people pick through by hand what is supposed to be recyclable material, but more and more often is just plain old dirty trash. The recyclables used to be worth something more than bragging rights about liberal moral superiority.

Americans are encouraged to embrace diversity and be culturally sensitive to those who have flouted our laws and invaded our nation. Meanwhile, illegal aliens arriving in America have no such requirement. Instead, trespassing tribes relocate, and when they do, rather than assimilate, they transfer habits and activities indigenous to the countries from whence they migrated. Thus, Americans suffer from illnesses that are easily traceable to third-world bathroom habits (TWBH) and lack of hygiene in the developing world. It´s not news that illegals work in restaurants as food-handlers. These restaurant workers migrate from

Watching FBI agent Peter Strzok battle with Congress, my initial reaction was pure anger. His repeated, arrogant insistence that he had done nothing wrong despite tons of evidence to the contrary convinced me he deserved immediate firing — if not the firing squad. Gradually, though, anger gave way to amazement as Strzok grew increasingly combative and condescending. Given his predicament, the sneering and smirking were stupid, and yet he persisted. Who is this jerk, I wondered, and how in the hell did he get to be a big shot at the FBI? And why are taxpayers still paying for the privilege of

The left-wing terrorist organization that calls itself Antifa is “freaking out” over a proposed law that would enhance penalties for anyone who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person” while wearing a disguise or mask. Throughout our country, and for a number of years now — and primarily because the establishment media fantasizes about, promotes, enflames and approves of the violence committed against the right (naturally, HuffPo opposes the unmasking law) — Antifa has been allowed to run rampant, committing countless acts of violence against everyday, peaceful supporters of President Donald Trump.

A 13-year-old girl in Alabama was beheaded because she saw her Sinaloa Cartel-associated granny stabbed to death by drug traffickers, authorities have said. Mariah Lopez, 13, and her grandmother Oralia Mendoza, 49, were killed on June 4 in Moon Cemetery outside of Huntsville, Alabama, prosecutors revealed in court on Thursday. The new details in the case came in a hearing for 26-year-old Yoni Aguilar, who along with 34-year-old Israel Palomino is charged with two counts each of capital murder in the slayings. At the hearing, investigators testified that the grandmother Mendoza had ties to the Sinaloa Cartel,
