Real Clear Politics is Predicting
a Red Wave in the Senate

Daily Caller, by Evie Fordham

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/11/2018 1:18:15 PM

RealClearPolitics data is pointing to a red wave in the Senate this November, with recent polls showing key seats like North Dakota and Arizona going or staying red. RealClear currently predicts that at least 49 Senate seats will be Republican and at least 44 will be Democrats, with seven toss-up races. In three of those toss-ups, recent polls contain good news for Republican candidates. If Republicans do win in the four toss-up races where they have the best chances — Arizona, Tennessee, Nevada and Missouri — the Senate could see a net gain

The GOP has no reason why they aren´t adding 4-6 seats this November. The math was in their favor before the Democrats stepped in it big time with their Kavanaugh hearing fiascos.

Now it´s time to hold the House.

Thanks to our Democrat friends for keeping the GOP Establishment from snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

Why is two seats a wave? More like a trickle. Its nice to win but there´s no use in overstating it. They overuse landslide a lot too.

Chances are this is because the economy is doing well enough that the ´bottom´ 1/3 of the working class have jobs and the hope of even better jobs. This is according to Conrad Black. The Democrats essentially abandoned the working class years ago even before Obama won. The Democrats offered nothing for working people - other than food stamps and very expensive ´free´ healthcare. These people are now voting - they feel they have a stake in the political scene. They see President Trump as ´their´ guy?

I´m glad to see Nevada and Arizona are now showing the Republican ahead - if only by a few points. Hope to see Indiana and Missouri follow the same path. We´ll need some more R´s for the next Supreme Court confirmation - which could easily be within the next year.

Can see the Republicans picking up 4 05 5 seats in the Senate. Indiana (R+9), Missouri (R+9), Montana (R+11), North Dakota (R+16), and West Virginia (R+20) are all held by Democrats but have Republican majorities. There are also Florida (R+2) and Ohio (R+3).

Polls show the Democrats picking up 15-20 seats in the House, but many are listed as tossups when the district has a Republican majority.

Get out, vote, and make it happen! With their rhetoric and treatment of Kavanagh, the Democrats are imploding!

Need to push the idea of "we aren´t looking to resist, but to engage, to work on-behalf of our state, and find ways to help bring more jobs, good jobs, and results".

There are areas who will only resist, and they may find they will lose out to those willing to work with instead of resist.

Think of California, which only seems to be pushing the resist mantra, but will they end up losing out on deals, on jobs, and other things the government assists with ALL due to other states and cities looking to work with the current administration instead?

And, don´t be fooled by those conservative sounding House Democrat candidates, particularly those who´ve never held any political office, as they will forced to vote the liberal/progressive agenda of Nancy Pelosi.

I have been predicting a gain from 3 to 5 seats in the Senate in November for about 18 months. I stand by that.

The Kavanaugh attacks may increase that to 6 or 7 Senate seats gained, possibly.

I think Republicans will hold the House, possibly even gain seats. The long, historic norm for midterms when the House, Senate and Presidency are held by the same party is for the majority party to lose many seats in the House, often losing control. If we lose a few seats and hold the House majority, or even gain seats, it will be a big victory. If we lose the House, it will be, unfortunate, but normal.

Here is RCP´s best guess at what the 2016 outcome would be-Published on Nov. 7th, 2016. All their latest polling data, their compute4r algorithms, Larry Sabato´s best guesses combined with polls from overseas- all showed almost the exact opposite of how the election turned out.

Electoral College

RCP prediction: Hillary 323 - Trump: 215

Actual Outcome: Hillary 227 - Trump 304

So, if RCP is predicting something- Laugh. It has as much worth as used toilet paper.

A few days ago, RCP House polling was 206 Dems, 194 Republican, total margin of 12. Today it is 204 Dems, 199 Republican, total margin of 5.

Bernie Madoff’s Legacy: Whistleblower Inc.
Wall Street Journal, by Gregory Zuckerman and Dave Michaels    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 12/8/2018 10:11:03     Post Reply
Ten years ago, Bernard Madoff’s multibillion-dollar Ponzi scheme, the biggest fraud in U.S. history, shocked the financial world. It soon emerged that a forensic accountant, Harry Markopolos, had been alerting regulators for years to Mr. Madoff’s fraud, but no one had listened. At Mr. Markopolos’s urging, the Securities and Exchange Commission created a cash-for-tips program, designed to encourage reports of financial wrongdoing and prevent the lapses in oversight that gave Mr. Madoff free rein. Today, an entire industry is devoted to surfacing tips from company insiders and expert analysts who scrutinize corporate filings.

George H.W. Bush wasn’t born in Texas, as the saying goes, but he got here as soon as he graduated from Yale. Over the next seven decades, he left an imprint on the Lone Star State that is matched by only a few. His legacy, however, may be defined as much by his quiet acts of generosity as by any grandiose act of statesmanship. Here, five Texans reflect on the man they once knew.

Mueller’s Gift to Obama

Robert Mueller looks to be approaching his endgame, and the press is alive with speculation as to how bad the special counsel’s report will be for President Trump. It’s also worth noticing how good Mr. Mueller has been to another president, Barack Obama, and his team. This benevolence was on display in the sentencing document the special counsel’s office filed on Tuesday for Mike Flynn. The former Trump national security adviser, we are told, has provided “substantial assistance,” sitting for 19 interviews that aided in “several ongoing investigations.” In light of this help, the Mueller team

Secretary of Defense James Mattis responded to criticisms after he and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave an intelligence brief to Senators on the murder of Saudi Jamal Khashoggi. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) have called out the pair. “I think the Secretary of Defense and Secretary of State are in a bad spot because the president has given this bear hug to MBS and to the entire Saudi regime, so they are bound to carry out his bizarre policy,” Murphy said during a “Morning Joe” interview.

The Global Carbon Tax Revolt
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 12/4/2018 8:00:29     Post Reply
France’s violent Yellow Vest protests are now about many domestic concerns, but it’s no accident that the trigger was a fuel-tax hike. Nothing reveals the disconnect between ordinary voters and an aloof political class more than carbon taxation. The fault line runs between anti-carbon policies and economic growth, and France is a test for the political future of emissions restrictions. France already is a relatively low-carbon economy, with per-capita emissions half Germany’s as of 2014. French governments have nonetheless pursued an “ecological transition” to further squeeze carbon emissions from every corner

Attorneys for President Trump asked a court Monday for nearly $800,000 in lawyers’ fees and penalties from adult-film actress Stormy Daniels for the failed defamation lawsuit against him. Attorney Charles Harder defended more than 500 hours his firm spent that rang up a nearly $390,000 legal bill for the president and asked for an equal amount in sanctions as a deterrent against a “repeat filer or frivolous defamation cases.” Harder said the fees and penalties were earned because of the extraordinary nature of the defamation case.

Canned tuna, a lunchbox staple from the 20th century, is fighting to keep its spot in American cupboards. Century-old tuna companies like StarKist Co., Bumble Bee Foods LLC and Chicken of the Sea International are trying to reboot demand for tuna fish—selling it in cans, pouches and kits with trendy flavors or as a healthy snack—as they seek to hold on to their dominance in a shrinking market.(Snip for graphic)The traditional tuna makers are facing problems that have plagued other providers of packaged foods, such as soup.

NeverTrump Clings To Russia Collusion
Conspiracy Theory Despite Lack Of Evidence
The Federalist, by Mollie Hemingway    Original Article

The NeverTrump movement has gone from pushing allegations that Donald Trump treasonously colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 presidential election from its rightful owner Hillary Clinton, to pretending that his attempts at business deals in Russia, which were legal and the subject of widespread reporting during the election, are evidence of unspecified crimes. The main barrier to the Russia-Trump collusion theory — an information operation that was secretly bought and paid for by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, spread by a compliant media, and weaponized by the highest levels of federal agencies —

Thank you, President George H.W. Bush, for everything you did, but most of all for your greatest accomplishment: Keeping Michael S. Dukakis out of the White House in 1988. Getting dead, someone once observed, always does a lot for a person’s social standing. So maybe that’s one reason for all the bouquets Poppy was getting yesterday in the media as an “underrated” president, even by some of the Green Room grifters who think the only good Republican is a dead Republican.

Austin, Texas It would be hard to find a better example of left-wing naiveité in municipal affairs than what transpired here in November. Voters in the Lone Star State’s progressive bastion, overwhelmingly approved a $925 million bond package but rejected a simple ballot initiative for an independent audit of city spending. The defeat of the audit wouldn’t be so galling if the new bonds didn’t so obviously demonstrate the need for an independent review of Austin’s books. Spending in the Texas capital is more like what one would expect in some profligate California city. With this new bond package,

It was the first pep rally of the 2018 season, and the crowd of students, teachers, and families didn’t need much coaxing to cheer. “The Leopards are starting a new season!” Stokes yelled, bending her knees and waving her free arm with a mascot’s trademark excitement. “And now, they’re playing eleven-man football!” The gym burst into cheers.

Usually when Congress cancels a committee meeting the country misses nothing more than grandstanding. But this week the Senate Judiciary Committee had to halt progress on confirming talented judges thanks to GOP Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona. The committee was scheduled to meet Thursday to move some 20 judicial nominees. But Mr. Flake has said he will block all judicial nominees until he receives a vote on a bill that would insulate Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation from normal political accountability. The GOP’s one-seat majority on Judiciary means the party can’t report judges out of committee

If Tuesday’s instantly famous Oval Office meeting is a harbinger of things to come, it’s going to be a long two years for “Chuck and Nancy.” Presidents can be intimidating, and Trump had home court advantage during Tuesday’s meeting. However, Chuck Schumer seemed especially outmatched by a very forceful Donald Trump. As Bill Kristol (no Trump apologist) put it: “[B]ased on what I saw of their respective performances in that Oval Office meeting today, I don’t understand why it’s Nancy Pelosi who’s facing a leadership challenge and Chuck Schumer who isn’t.” The mainstream media will focus
