MSNBC anchors, other media pundits fuel
civil war fears over midterms: 'Democracy
looks like it's over'

With the midterms less than a month away, left-leaning news outlets and political commentators are resorting to dark predictions about the future of the country with warnings of imminent civil war if Republicans retake control of Congress in November. Talk of a second civil war among liberal journalists, television personalities and lawmakers has become increasingly commonplace following the raid on former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home on Aug. 8, after which liberal pundits repeatedly claimed on-air that evolving distrust for the U.S. government among Trump supporters would lead to escalated political violence. The topic resurfaced weeks later when President Biden called his predecessor and "MAGA Republicans" a threat to "the very foundations of our republic"

Democrats being VOTED out of their slim plurality is democracy in action. .what they lament is the end of dictatorial Democrat-cy. While they constantly harp on their 'love' for minorities, with the slimmest of contrived majority they stamp out all others voices. Without the relatively tiny cohort of admitted Socialists they do not even currently hold majority in either chamber, let alone in legislatures or Governorship.

And so it begins. The narrative is being set. We all know any violence will come from the left because Republicans do not use violence as a political weapon. If we did, the country would be ablaze because we have witnessed one outrageous illegal act after another by this lawless regime. It is no mystery who will result to using violence to express their loss of power and control. I fully expect democrats to officially reject the results of the election when they realize that Americans want nothing to do with their madness. They will wail and literally gnash their teeth in frustration. Lawlessness has been such an integral part of their political strategy that they will not be able to process a response other than violence and mayhem. Democrat leaders will not caution restraint, they will encourage chaos because their spiteful nature will insist upon it. They would rather burn the country to the ground than give up the power they have illegally accumulated. I sincerely believe they cannot grasp the reality of rejection and will use violence and intimidation to express their outrage. I hope and pray their defeat is the most humiliating loss in political history. It’s time that sanity is returned to the political arena. Democrats are not going to like it, but after what they have done in under two years, it is going to be a fitting response by the American voter. We can weather their tantrums. What we cannot tolerate is their lawless anti-American policies. Get to the polls on Election Day. Don’t vote early unless you have to. There is no upside to letting them know how many of us are going to the polls. It just gives them the number they need in order to cheat. Crush them on Election Day with voters who are sending the message of we don’t want what you are selling. Vote. Pray. Keep you eyes open. Do not let them intimidate you in any way. We have a country to save.

Nobody sane wants it, but they keep pushing and pushing. Eventually decent people will tire of turning the other cheek, just to have it slapped too. The sky is falling! The sky is falling! Accept our communism or those maga patriots will return us to freedom and individual responsibility! Thats racist! Thats homophobic! Thats transphobic! Thats pedophobhic! Thats kleptophobic! If it is to happen, I say let it. My guess is the college commies who are pushing all this do not have the stomach for a fight. And really, how hard is it to hit a 500 lb trannie cow dressed like a tattooed ninja?

A BUSHEL of thanks to #3. When the Left breaks into violence, like they did in the summer of 2020, these same media propagandists will claim it is "justified". The Left also carefully stages its assaults in liberal strongholds where the politicians will take NO actions to put it down and the judges will let the thugs walk. The whole thing is violent political theater. The problem is, most of the country is getting fed up with these actions. The demands to confront and arrest violent actors will be stronger and less easy to ignore. Further, it could further galvanize the electorate to lay the actions completely at the feet of the dems, along with the issues of inflation, economy, immigration, ... Further, the credibility of the propagandist media is almost nonexistent, in the low teens. As it becomes clear that it is the violent Left that is causing any violence, the terrorist media will also be held accountable. Here's a reality check. The media is a business. If there is no no viewership/readership there is no money being earned from ad revenue. They can't pay big bucks to the propagandists. The business collapses. That's the reality of what is happening at CNN. But more important, the terrorist propaganda media is going to be left shouting into an empty room and then their political theater will have no audience. We have to VOTE and prepare for the violence the Left will unleash in response and not submit to the terrorism which is their real weapon.

There won’t be a civil war like the one in 1861 when Lincoln sent federal troops into Virginia. There may well be violent clashes with the Antifa types when they riot over election results. They had best not attack red state enclaves lest they get the Rittenhouse treatment.

Hey MSNBC, America is not a Democracy, we are a Constitutional Republic but the Democrats have forgotten that. What they mean by Democracy is mob rule and the Democrats are the mob. In reality America is a representative democracy but the Democrat party has criminally blocked our representation by manipulating elections and have robbed us of our votes. If the Republicans take back both houses the first order of business must be creating a solidly bulletproof and secure election system.

The Democrats had best reign in their Jan 6th Committee. IF they decide they are going to Indict the Former President of the United States, they had better be READY to see Biden face the same thing! If they open the Door for this to happen to Trump, you can BET it will be used against Biden. Lord knows there are multiple ground to convict him! So, the Dems are all excited about this happening to Trump, but, hopefully there are a few with Level heads who can see ahead exactly what will happen as soon as the next Republican takes office!! Be careful what you wish for!!

Researchers at Boston University say they have developed a new COVID strain that has an 80% kill rate following a series of similar experiments first thought to have started the global pandemic that began in China. The variant, a combination of Omicron and the original virus in Wuhan, killed 80% of the mice infected with it, the university said. When mice were only exposed to Omicron, they experienced mild symptoms. The research was conducted by a team of scientists from Florida and Boston at the school's National Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratories.

If you listen to the White House, things are going great.

She also had the audacity to say that inflation and gas prices have been going down. “When we talk about inflation, gas prices, that’s been something that’s… the American people have seen for the past several months, several weeks… as costs have been coming down,”

After weeks of overseeing recovery efforts on Florida’s west coast in the wake of Hurricane Ian, Ron DeSantis fired up his campaign efforts once again with scheduled stops across the state. After a visit to The Villages outside Orlando, he made it down to South Florida into the traditionally Democratic party enclave of Broward County. The turnout was enough to turn heads. This tour stop was in the city of Coral Springs at Wings Plus, a fixture in the area, owned by Brian Walsh, a longtime Republican backer. The location is a common stop for GOP figures, but even Sunday’s appearance by the governor stood out.

Recent polling by a mainstream polling outfit has revealed who the most popular American politician is, and the left won’t be happy about it for sure. According to the poll, which was conducted by Harris Poll, HarrisX, and the Harvard University Center for American Political Studies (CAPS), Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) has the highest net popularity rating of any major American politician. In the survey, participants were asked to indicate how they felt about prominent politicians in the United States, giving responses such as very favorable, favorable, unfavorable, extremely unfavorable, never heard of them, or no opinion — and DeSantis ranked the highest of all of them.

We already know that Joe Biden has cost Americans an average of $6,000 in paycheck power from the inflation that has come of his billions and trillions in government spending, including his mockingly misnamed "Inflation Reduction Act" of 2022. While Biden has at various times claimed that inflation comes from Russia, greedy oil companies, Republicans, or chicken factories, and in any case is transitory, if not zero, inflation is something serious economists recognize as a monetary phenomenon.  Inflation, after all, is priced in money, and monetary agencies such as the Federal Reserve print up the cash it takes for all that government spending. The inflation comes from Joe.

For two months the Democrats chipped away at the Republicans' lead in the battle for House control, helped by motivated abortion-rights voters and what turned out to be fleeting glimmers of optimism about the economy. But that momentum has stalled, at least for now, and the Republicans' House lead has stabilized today at 224 seats to the Democrats' 211. The Republicans' lead had shrunk in the two previous model runs of September and August.What's behind this? Today's views of the economy have gotten worse amid continuing inflation, a volatile stock market and — in a stark reversal from August — people are reporting gas prices are rising in their neighborhoods.

Forty-nine percent of voters plan to vote for the Republican nominee to represent their House district while 45 percent said they’d back their Democratic opponent, according to a New York Times/Siena College poll released Monday. Of particular note was a 32 point swing among independent women toward the GOP.

In recent polls measuring the performance of Republicans on the generic ballot (meaning polls essentially asking voters if they are more likely to elect a Democrat or a Republican), the GOP has been scoring very high against Democrats. In fact, they are currently getting numbers they haven’t seen since July. In fact, over the weekend, their average at RealClearPolitics hit a high they haven’t hit since February. Republicans officially took the lead in those averages again in late September as the voter high on Democrats’ passing major legislation and falling gas prices wore off. But last week, Democrats tanked while Republicans continued to rise.
