majority in November

Original Article

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell knows Republicans in his chamber are going to face tough campaigns this year to hold on to their majority in November. "We've got a lot of seats to defend all over the country, and in about seven or eight places, it’s like a knife fight in an alley already, and we very much understand the Senate could go either way," McConnell said Wednesday on Fox News's The Story with Martha MacCallum. McConnell's comments come as a new analysis by the nonpartisan Cook Political Report shows a bleak outlook for several GOP senators who are losing ground to their Democratic challengers.

Comments:

And being on defense is the problem here, especially with Turtle Face McMilquetoast in charge!! The GOP should be on OFFENSE, forcing Senate leftists to defend their votes on impeachment, budgets, police reform and anything else their decisions have screwed up in this country!! You don't win by curling up in a ball and whining for Mommy!! Dang shame that Turtle and co don't understand this!!

If the republicans would get out in front of the cameras and keep repeating the differences, the democrats promote and encourage the criminal element, tearing down and destroying and republicans want to protect, revitalize, rebuild and open up the country. The things this president stands for are the things most Americans want and care about. Law and order (support the police and allow them to do their job, safe cities, jobs (getting back to work), unity (democrats want to divide), border control, economics by lower taxes, no sanctuary cities, freedom to worship, equal education (choice of schools). This needs to be driven home and repeated over and over.

Its hard for them to campaign from under their desks. I've not heard one word of support for Trump from my GOP senator. Just mindless platitudes and pictures with the Hooterville Chamber of Commerce and the sewage workers union.

The bigger danger is Biden "winning" a corrupted election and getting the Swamp back into power. It won't matter who has the majority.

That's McConnell's biggest problem...being on defense...try being on the offense..state the many positives Trump has accomplished, do ads on the millions of $$ & hours the dems have spent trying to get rid of Trump, the fake impeachment, the corruption at the JD & other agencies during the Obama years. Grow up Mitch & learn to fight like you did during the Kavanaugh hearings.

It’s up to the voters to be smarter than their representatives and keep the Senate in Republican control, regardless of the quivering types like McConnell. It’s far more preferable than to have Schumer at the helm!

When Donald Trump took office, the bases were loaded with a republican president, republican majority in the senate, and republican majority in the house of representatives. But, Paul Ryan, speaker of the house was at the plate and chose to be called out on strikes without swinging. The time was perfect to pass legislation that would require photo ID to vote in a federal election, limit voting only to US citizens, and address other voting laws to make that process less subject to manipulation. But, Paul Ryan did nothing, and two years later, the democrats took control of the house and spent all of their efforts attacking Donald Trump 24/7. The democrats could not have hoped for a bunch of republicans in power such as Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, and Jeff Sessions. These three proved to be top-level republican swamp creatures, and felt threatened by Donald Trump.

It is not too late to offer a contract with America. 1. Support police. 2. Proudly defend US foundations of liberty and freedom. 3 Reiterate American exceptionalism. 4. Reinstate free market health care solutions. 5. Promote the Presidents accomplishments thus far with sincerity. If you don’t understand, call Bannon.

One of the reasons so many of them face losing their elections is because they sold out OUR President. The Americans who vote for Trump expected republicans to stand behind the President we elected. Those who did not SHOULD be gone. If we lose the Senate it will, be their own fault.

McConnell like the rest of numb nuts in Washington live and die by the poll. Never mind the polls are rarely correct, and especially after 2016. Instead of worrying about losing, McConnell should be thinking about how he can use the increased majority he's going to have after November.

Mitch is so predictable...every two years we need a conservative majority in the Senate for judges, etc. Then the next four we get mush from Lindsay and "It's the best we can do" compromises. This is what one gets demanding "Do something" from the UNIPARTY.

Trump gave the Republicans the majority, and will have to campaign around the country again this time. McConnell never leaves his home for anybody. Trump has said he will also campaign for House members. Trump has to do everything. The Republican Party does nothing, and will do nothing, and never has done anything. Trump is the only initiative, only energy, in the Republican Party. It is Trump vs. the Democrats, one person against the whole criminal gang.

Yes, by hiding out, pushing RINO candidates, and fighting hard against good conservative candidates the worthless cowardly RINOs in charge are risking the Senate. But understand - McConnell would MUCH rather LOSE the Senate than have a bunch of Trump supporting conservative Senators elected. And he is happy to make that bargain.

U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield has confirmed that, despite claims otherwise from the left, there is indeed a “perverse incentive” for hospitals to overcount their coronavirus deaths by falsely attributing unrelated deaths to the virus. Asked during a House Oversight and Reform hearing Friday to comment on what Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer, a Republican, described as a “perverse incentive for medical folks to claim that somebody died of COVID versus an automobile accident, for instance,” Redfield admitted that the congressman had a point.

CNN activist Jake Tapper got triggered when President Trump briefly spoke to a small group of supporters who had gathered on the tarmac at the Tampa, Florida airport to greet him. Tapper fumed on Twitter: “Trump holds event with Florida supporters at Tampa airport, with little distancing or mask-wearing.” President Trump responded by noting that the gathering was not a rally (otherwise there would’ve been a larger crowd), but a small group of Florida law enforcement officers who were there to greet him. “Jake, this wasn’t a Trump Rally, but rather a very successful gathering of the great Sheriffs and Law Enforcement (of Florida) who gave me their unequivocal ENDORSEMENT,” Trump tweeted.

Explosive unsealed court documents related to the Jeffrey Epstein/Ghislaine Maxwell sex trafficking investigation have caused #BillClintonIsAPedo to trend on Twitter Sunday, making it the top item in the politics category on the social media network. Most media outlets have ignored the revelations, which would be massive headline news if a past or present Republican president was implicated in the allegations. Twitter users jumped on the Epstein-Clinton connection, however, particularly in the context of the media trying to bury the story because it reflects poorly on Clinton specifically and Democrats generally. Some Twitterville voices initially claimed the platform was trying to suppress or throttle the trend,

President Trump has been speaking out against mail-in voting for weeks now. Democrats know it is easier to cheat and steal votes when a state moves to mail-in voting. It’s the reason Nevada Democrats on Saturday passed mail-in voting and ballot harvesting in their special session just 97 days before the national election. They know it’s easier to cheat that way. President Trump posted this video earlier this week that shows how corrupt and flawed the mail-in voting process is in America today. [Video] But Marco Rubio sided with Democrats today.

How many tens of thousands of Americans must die because of Dr. Fauci’s mistakes? It is becoming more and more apparent with each new day and as more information is accumulated that Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx, the CDC and the FDA failed in their response to the China Coronavirus. Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx pushed a completely fraudulent Imperial College study to lockdown and destroy the greatest economy in US history. Dr. Anthony Fauci has made at least 15 critical mistakes and contradictions since the start of the pandemic in March. Perhaps Dr. Fauci’s most deadly mistake is his response to hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) treatments for the disease.

On Aug. 1, 1945, 12-year-old Hideko Sudo went to bed fully clothed and full of worry. For days, air raid alerts had left the coastal city of Toyama on edge, prompting her school's closure. More alarmingly, earlier that day, American planes had rained down leaflets warning of an imminent attack. Hideko's fears proved well-founded. Despite a sophisticated alert system and a decade of air defense drills, the arrival just after midnight of a wave of B-29 bombers plunged Toyama into chaos. Superfortresses — 173 of them — encountered only sparse antiaircraft fire as they released around 1,500 tons of incendiaries onto the city's center.

The survey, from the Democracy Institute commissioned by the Sunday Express newspaper, shows Trump leading Biden 48 percent to 46 percent.
