Why the red tsunami seems to have hit
only Florida

Original Article

As vote counts continue to be posted, it is clear that Republican hopes and dreams of a huge wave election have been dashed. (snip) But in one state, Florida, Republicans have triumphed in tsunami-like proportions. With 98% of the vote counted, Marco Rubio has a 16.4% landslide lead over Senate challenger Val Demings, and Governor Ron DeSantis has a 19.4% lead, a gigantic increase over his fraction of one percent squeaker victory 4 years ago. It’s going to take some time to figure out why the rest of the country isn’t behaving like the Sunshine State, but 3 factors suggest themselves.

The outcome last night in Florida suggests that fears that those leaving New York for the Sunshine State would taint the politics toward democrats. It appears that these refugees left the Empire State because they were conservatives worn out by the democrat environment, They did not go to Florida and foul the nest.

I don't understand with the dislike of Biden, inflation, gas prices, crime, runaway federal spending that the Republicans did not do better in the election. The one that hurts the most is Fetterman elected to the U.S. Senate.

Abortion abortion abortion! The young women of this country consider it their sacred right! You think last nights blood red moon was just a coincidence? No it was a sign of the judgement about to be released onto this wicked nation.

Last night is a reminder that we can't expect to win if we are only running against Biden as opposed to exposing Dem policies and other Dims. Bragging about the Red Tsunami didn't help either.

For one thing, the number of Canadian snow birds is way down. I know some have established residency and voted in the past. Secondly, the Dem opposition was weak. Charlie Crist? C’mon, man. Undoubtedly the job done by DeSantis was appreciated by Floridians.

FTA: “ Voting integrity systems have been put in place in Florida…” There you have it. This is a big part of the reason that Florida went red. Of course, the state has great candidates too. You cannot fault DeSantis’ leadership either. He is an awesome governor. Until we get our election process secured, we will continue to see democrats steal what they cannot win. Look how hard Arizonans fought to clean up the mess there with little success and, of course, democrats managed to create chaos. It seems to me that it should be clear to anyone paying attention that had Republicans worked harder after 2020 to expose the cheating that gave the election to Biden, we would be in a much better position today. Ignoring wrongdoing never ends well. However, I am sure the Republican leadership is fine with the results today. McConnell and McCarthy pretty much threw in the towel immediately after 2020 and did not make voter integrity an important issue. Too bad, but it is the way with the GOPe. They are content to forever be a bridesmaid and never the bride. Unfortunately, their myopic vision continues to harm the very people they claim to represent. Call me crazy, but I am not sure either one of them care much about anything other than protecting the status quo. It is such a pity because we all will pay the price for their malevolent neglect.

I think it was a combination of 1) weak GOP candidates in key races (PA, GA, MI), 2) for the 20somethings it was abortion and 3) as this article points out, in FL there are "no mass mailings of vote-by-mail ballots".

It's sad that being a pessimist, and being a realist, are almost the same thing about this. The Red Wave was throttled by corrupt election procedures. The 'revolt' was anticipated and thwarted by a 'Vote-counter-revolution.

Had the Republicans not worked so hard at not being ‘election deniers’ they may have taken a moment to scrutinize the massive fraud in the last election. Predictably the vans were backing into the Detroit counting center at 11:30 last night with bins full of ballots.

Watched prominent N.Y. Democrat Dov Hiken on Fox this a,.m....a 2 time Trump voter and supporter who thought he was an excellent President. ()As did I.) He pointed out that EVERYONE expected a Red Wave but something changed in the last day before the election, and that was Donald Trump once again inserting himself into the mix, and thus turning off Independents, Republicans and some Democrats, and especially those middle class women who were coming back. I absolutely believe this!!!!!!! He just can't keep the focus on anyone but himself---as late as last night he was badmouthing Republican candidates (as in Colorado) who would not say he won the 2020 election. Hiken said that Trump should gracefully back DeSantis on Nov. 15th---that should be the announcement. But we KNOW it won't happen. The W.S. Journal's top editorial pointed out how McConnell saved Trump's bacon (to a degree) by pumping $$$$ into Oz (who lost anyhow) and Vance (who pulled back from Trump, and won last night.). Almost ALL of the $ given to Trump for America or whatever has gone to TRUMP---virtually nothing was given to the candidates he backed, often (as in Pa.) at the expense of candidates (as in Pa.) who were middle of the road Republicans. Other worthy candidates did not get the $ because the Party was giving it to Oz and Vance. (And many Trump candidates were neophytes who didn't know how to raise it on their own. I voted for Trump twice, gave $$$$ to him---and KNOW he will be the BullMoose Party next round: half of us or more will not vote for him for re-election because of his BEHAVIOR and not his ability, none of the Dems or Independents will for the same reason, so we will loose. Only those supporters who think he is the 2nd coming of Christ will stand by him, and that is only 35% of the Republican Party. If Trump could stop with the Sanctimonious DeSantis crap and all the other Look at ME! nonsense he might stand a chance.....but that is not his nature. In the end,. he thinks of Trump, not us, and if what we want coincides with HIS ideas, fine....otherwise, we are cockroaches.

I’m afraid about 50% of the American electorate is incapable of connecting the dots. It saddens me to realize that so many people can be so dense but it is what it is. They deserve every bit of the hell that is about to descend on them. Unfortunately, a lot of good people will suffer, too. Damn Democrats to Hell.

Mega, mega dittos, Rinktum. Florida won big because it had a legal, efficiently run voting system. Why is it that this morning, 9am here in the east, we still don't know what the balance of power is in the United States Congress but in Florida, the results were wrapped up neatly on election day? The weak, feckless republican leadership has ceded to the criminal democrats, free, fair, efficient and legal elections. 2020 WAS the hill to die on, and they allowed themselves but worse, we, their voters who were concerned with voting illegalities to be harassed, abused and bullied and shouted down when we demanded accountability in that election. I would like to know if in this 2022 election, in states where the races are "too close to call" if Dominion voting machines were used? In fact, I want to know each and every state that uses Dominion voting machines. I will never believe elections are legal in this country, until a real investigation and thorough vetting of these problematic states is conducted.

While it might seem minor compared to Florida, we in bright RED very conservative Tennessee flipped a House seat that has been held by the Democrats since 1875, YES 1875, essentially since Reconstruction! And thanks to our fine state legislature's "redistricting" plan these past couple of years my congressman actually NOW after 30 years of voting really represents me. BRUTAL "Redistricting" is exactly what every single R state should do to break up the Democrats House seats. Take no prisoners!!

I think a big story is being missed in Georgia, which is where I live. With the exception of Herschel Walker, Georgia went solidly RED yesterday. Governor Kemp and every other statewide GOP candidate won their races by 5 to 10 points. Sadly, Walker is not a great candidate...he ran a good campaign, but he has a lot of baggage and the Dems inundated the state with ads that portrayed him as a compulsive liar and violent man who has mental issues. Looks like we are going to end up with that race being a run-off and if that happens, I think he'll win. And, I'm not sure why, although I think I know, but Kemp never gets credit for pushing back on all the Covid madness. We were the first state to re-open (Trump even criticized him for re-opening too early) and he fought the crazy Mayor of Atlanta over school mandates and closures. He hung tough and had to deal with a "shadow government" being run by Abrams that tried to undermine him at every turn (MLB All-Star Game!). Anyway, if you look at Georgia, which many have described as a Purple state, we swung pretty solidly back into the RED category last night. Now...not sure what the hell happened in the rest of the country, but since I live in Georgia, I'll take the win!

I can't help but think something else is astray here too. It would almost seem that the election has become about people's egos. This almost seems to be a battle between Obama and Trump. I absolutely did not like what Trump said about Ron DeSantis. All of this ego stuff it really hurting this beautiful country of ours.

In Kansas our horrible, rotten, Dem governor was re-elected, which is unreal. And here in eastern Kansas, the extreme leftist Congresscritter, a lesbian, was also re-elected, showing how far this county which had been reliably Republican 20-25 years ago has been taken over by Dems. Schools endlessly creating leftist graduates and a number of large companies moving here in the last 20 years have brought large numbers of coastal folks here to work, and vote Dem. It's just disgusting. It does look like Kris Kobach has won in the Attorney General's election, although that is tighter than it should be. But with a far left Dem governor, that will make things very difficult. And I can't believe Fetterman, who looks like a gangland hit man, talks of releasing convicted killers from prison and can barely make an intelligible sentence is elected. Pennsylvania will get more crime and more energy problems. And it is very questionable whether the House of Representatives will change hands, and if it does, it looks pretty slim. So much BS talk about "red wave", and it just didn't happen. So many people buying all the propaganda from the Dems. Difficult to believe that people love high fuel prices, shortages of everything, lots of unemployment and the tyranny of the "pandemic". But I have numerous friends who still buy all the COVID lies, one woman friend got her "booster" recently and buys the entire line of BS, hook line and sinker. Other friends also got mRNA shots and boosters, buying the whole thing.

In Florida, you have to have a picture ID and sign in to vote. Absentee voting has also been made secure. in other states, you can fill out as many ballots as you want and stuff them in boxes on the side of the road. (Dem judges have blocked anybody from video taping these boxes).

Congratulations to the Republicans who won last night. I hope you are fully inoculated against the DC Swamp Virus. I suspect that is wishful thinking on my part. The GOP has once again shown its ineptitude in being able to create and deliver a clear, powerful and compelling message. Proof? GA, PA senate races top the list with a mentally disabled winner and an out and out Marxist in contention. The reality that everyone needs to prepare for is that this country's future (at least near and mid term)is bleak at best but most likely shockingly horrible.

If you didn't vote, you have no 'standing' to complain about the results. What Stalin said about 'who counts the votes', what Einstein said about 'insanity', and what Jesus and Lincoln said about 'a house divided'. Still holding to my conviction that the ONLY long-term 'fix' is a new MAGA party, modeled on the Conservative Party of New York State: endorse 'MAGA' GOP candidates and contest the others with own candidates in the general election. The longer we delay, the worse it will get. Pray .. pray hard.

We sure didn't have a red wave in the Peoples' Republic of Colorado. Even in my House district, our beloved Lauren Boebert lost a very close race to Adam Frisch, the rich guy from Aspen who with the help of a lot of dark money buried her. Strange isn't it that too many folks are still good with corruption, the covid vax scam, high gas and energy prices, very high inflation, high crime and violence, very high real estate prices, and runaway government spending. Not to mention the prospect of the Great Election Fraud of 2022.

When I voted yesterday, in California, I checked every single candidate’s bio, even down to the level of dogcatcher. Every proposition was scrutinized, before I personally arrived at the local polling booth and by my own hand, dropped in the sealed ballot. Even with that, I I knew that very few others followed my path. If everyone in this country voted the way I did, not a single democrat would be in office!

Ron DeSantis is getting the lion’s share of national attention for his sweeping victory...adding almost 20 points to his margin of victory in 2018, when he barely won the governorship. Among his pillars of support was his strong opposition to COVID shutdowns of businesses and schools and his opposition to vaccine mandates. But 2 other statewide races on Tuesday featured incumbent candidates who vigorously fought against COVID shutdowns and mandatory vaccines. And in both races the incumbents won victories with even bigger margins than DeSantis. In Kentucky, with 87% of the vote counted, Rand Paul is winning re-election to the Senate with a 22.8% margin)

Donald Trump is continuing to treat Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis like a political enemy. On Wednesday, Trump pooh-poohed DeSantis’s huge and historic victory by insisting that his 2020 win in Florida was bigger. “Now that the Election in Florida is over, and everything went quite well, shouldn’t it be said that in 2020, I got 1.1 Million more votes in Florida than Ron D got this year, 5.7 Million to 4.6 Million? Just asking?” Trump won Florida in 2020 by 3.4-point margin, while DeSantis won reelection by a 19.45-point margin. Sorry, Trump, I think DeSantis’s victory is far more impressive. This ridiculous, ego-driven pettiness from Trump has got to stop.

President Joe Biden pledged to build a high-speed railway between Scranton, Pennsylvania, and New York City on Wednesday. The president made his bold (and likely unrealistic) pronouncement during his post-midterm election press conference on Wednesday when recalling how a congressman in the state of Pennsylvania asked if his infrastructure plan would include a high-speed rail between the two cities. “We can. First of all, it will make it a lot easier to take a lot of vehicles off the road, and we have more money in the pot now already out there that we voted for than the entire money that we spend on Amtrak, to begin with,” he said.

Former VP Mike Pence has a memoir coming out next week titled “So Help Me God.” Today the Wall Street Journal published a excerpt from it dealing with the events leading up to and following January 6. Pence outlines some of the pressure he was under to attempt to change the outcome of the election by refusing to certify the vote from a handful of states. On Dec. 23, my family boarded Air Force Two to spend Christmas with friends. As we flew across America, President Trump retweeted an obscure article titled “Operation Pence Card.” It alluded to the theory that if all else failed, I could alter the outcome

2024 bid now in hopes it would boost Warnock

Atlanta — Georgia Democrats are “praying” that former President Donald Trump launches a 2024 presidential next week, saying it would be manna from heaven for Sen. Raphael Warnock in his runoff race next month against Herschel Walker. The thinking is Mr. Walker’s close ties to Mr. Trump — who prodded him to move back home to Georgia from Texas for the Senate race — will weigh down his run while the Trump announcement also energizes Democratic voters and turns off some Republicans. “If he announces like they say, the second or third week of November, before the December [runoff] election, oh, my God …we’re praying that he does it,”

Democrats' strategy of spending millions to boost pro-Trump candidates in Republican primaries appeared to pay off Tuesday as the party ended the night with a clean sweep of the races in which it chose to meddle. All six of the Republican candidates who seemingly benefited from the meddling in their primary victories fell to their Democratic opponents. Those races include a number of key House and gubernatorial races, as well as the New Hampshire Senate race. Democrats spent more than $40 million boosting those six GOP candidates, all of whom expressed support for former President Donald Trump as a leader of the Republican Party or were backed by him.

White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan on Thursday seemed to confirm the Biden administration is considering investigating Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter. One day earlier, President Biden said: “I think that Elon Musk’s cooperations and/or technical relationships with other countries is worthy of being looked at. Whether or not he is doing anything inappropriate, I’m not suggesting that, I’m suggesting that it’s worth being looked at and that’s all I’ll say.” On Thursday, a reporter asked Sullivan whether he could offer any additional information about why Biden said the acquisition should be
The Case Against Mitch McConnell For Leader 18 replies

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is making a play for another term in leadership next week while control of the upper chamber remains in the balance after the Kentucky lawmaker’s chess game sabotaged chances for a GOP majority. In September, McConnell inaugurated the fall midterms by undermining Republicans in key races when the GOP Senate chief complained of “candidate quality.” “I think there’s probably a greater likelihood the House flips than the Senate,” McConnell said on Fox News just before Labor Day, the unofficial start of the fall campaign season. “Senate races are just different, they’re statewide, candidate quality has a lot to do with the outcome.”

There is trouble on many fronts in Arizona, where officials are having issues counting votes. Yet collecting and counting votes is basically the full description of their job. Republicans are seeing red, as it were, and registering their outrage in interviews and on Twitter. The problem receiving all the focus is in Maricopa County, which is the most populous county in the state. About 20% of the polling sites there reportedly had issues with tabulation machines reading ballots. Believe it or not, the Maricopa County Supervisor’s name is Bill Gates. Gates’ crack team of vote counters estimated that about 7% of the votes in the county were affected – about 17,000 ballots.
