What if the Republicans
Win Everything Again?

New York Times, by David Leonhardt

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 10/20/2018 5:00:28 AM

The end of Robert Mueller’s investigation. The loss of health insurance for several million people. New laws that make it harder to vote. More tax cuts for the rich. More damage to the environment. A Republican Party molded even more in the image of President Trump. These are among the plausible consequences if the Republicans sweep the midterm elections and keep control of both the House and Senate. And don’t fool yourself. That outcome, although not the most likely one, remains possible. The last couple of weeks of polling have shown how it could happen.

It will show that the nation is angry and fed up with the democrats. My questions is what have they offered the U.S. citizens besides destruction and obstruction. Ever since Obamacare they are going in the direction of socialism.

What a lying piece of excrement!!! False propaganda, manipulation, perception management! Leftists are evil and say anything for power. There should be a law against lying on purpose in the media.

What if? I’ll tell you, what if. There will be millions of patriotic Americans smiling, but at the same time those people will brace themselves for the onslaught that will be coming. The democrat temper tantrum will be something to see. The wailing, gnashing of teeth and general over the top outpouring of grief and disbelief will be something we have not seen before not to mention the raw anger. I honestly do not know what these terrible toddlers will do when they understand they have been rejected again.

It is my prayer that the country can weather the chaos they will, no doubt, create. God help us if we are not victorious. If we have learned anything in these past two years, it is that the left is without honor or integrity and will do or say anything to gain power. Therefore, those kind of people should never be in a position of power. They manufacture situations of which nightmares are made. Pray and vote Republican on November 6th. We must defeat the most existential threat facing this country in its history. We are thisclose to destroying the very foundation that has created this wonderful country. We must be victorious. VRN6.

Ignoring all of the lies and disinformation in this article, there is one fact that most prognosticators are forgetting: They are saying that Democrats will win back the House. They are forgetting that Trump defied all polls and predictions in getting elected in the first place. Why wouldn’t he defy predictions about the Dems taking back the House? Is everybody misreading the polls again?

I think we’re in for a red tide.

When Republicans win again, we will probably have plagues of locusts and frogs and the seas will rise 500 feet and ice cream will melt and we will all stub our toes.

Liberals think the Country is in a disaster movie that they are writing the plot for.

They are idiots. How can they be so constantly wrong and still have some people think they have anything useful to say?

This article shows the Dems are running scared. Five Thirty was WAY OFF in their predictions for the 2016 election and I think they´re way off now! Trump in drawing Thousands and Thousands at every Rally. That says Republicans are at least as pumped up as last time around, and maybe more so! Democrats have given us so much to fear about them. We KNOW they will create nothing but havoc if they win the House. We want to see Trump´s agenda move forward, not be tied up by Democrats trying to stall It and Impeach him as well. I think we will win Both Houses! Republicans are mad as heck about the Mobs and the nasty members of Congress and their treatment of Kavanaugh. We will be heard at the Polls!

Read this article carefully. It demonstrates the author´s firm belief that if the Republicans retain/strengthen control of the House and Senate, Trump will do EXACTLY as Barack Obama did (only in reverse). Obama increased private sector regulation to the point of economic stagnation. Trump would relax it for continued GDP growth. Obama opened our borders to illegal aliens, inviting chaos. Trump would reinforce them, forcing aliens desiring entry to legally apply for citizenship. Obama encouraged voter fraud. Trump would discourage it (what the author calls "voter suppression." Obama signed executive orders based on the "fixed science" of climate change. Trump would challenge that. Obama set in place the straw man Russian collusion that launched the Mueller investigation (i.e., the soft coup of the Deep State). Trump would end it, or let it die a slow and painful death. Obama "use[d] the law as an instrument of political power rather than one of justice." Trump would be able to do likewise. I understand the Deep State´s fear. They´ve seen what Obama has done in the name of his brand of democracy. They fear--and rightly--that Trump could take his lead and do likewise. Yes, Barack. Elections DO have consequences.

I agree with #4 and #13. I think it´s gonna be a red tsunami, and I think liberal pollsters, et al, know it, and are trying to prepare their electorate.

It is not going to be pretty, and we CAN NOT let up after this election. I don´t know what I was thinking, but the night of the 2016 election, I was so relieved, and actually thought, geez, now we can relax. WHAT A DORK! I soon realized the naivete of my thoughts.

PS - what is VRN6?

The fact that this piece exists at all is evidence that the "Blue Wave" is a myth.

The GOP might lose a few seats in the house (most off-year elections go against the president), but I think the Democrats and their toadies can already see that this isn´t going the way they hoped.

The Kavanaugh hearings energized the Republican base, and the continued screeching and craziness by the Democratic left is only helping to maintain this energy.

Brussels won’t allow Brexit deal do-over

Brussels is on edge, but it has no intention of going back to the Brexit drawing board. Chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier told a meeting of EU27 ambassadors Friday morning that whatever political “difficulties” Theresa May is experiencing in London, the bloc has a “duty” to stand firm on its key Brexit red lines, according to EU diplomats present. For her part, May is standing firm on the deal in the face of a gale of criticism and is intent on pushing the deal to a vote in the House of Commons. But if political opponents in her own party

To look back at the moment John Kerry entered US public life, addressing the Senate foreign relations committee on 22 April 1971, is to be struck by many things. There are the famous words, of course: “How do you ask a man to be the last man to die in Vietnam? How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?” There is the shock of dark, Beatles-inspired hair, the distinctly British-tinged accent. Above all, there is the self-possession.

Facing Deadlier Fires, California
Tries Something New: More Logging

FRENCH MEADOWS RESERVOIR, Calif.—Obscured amid the chaos of California’s latest wildfire outbreak is a striking sign of change that may help curtail future devastating infernos. After decades of butting heads, some environmentalists and logging supporters have largely come to agreement that forests need to be logged to be saved. The current fires are hitting populated areas along the edges of forests and brush lands, including the 142,000-acre Camp Fire in Northern California’s Butte County. That now ranks as the most deadly and destructive in state history, killing at least 63 people, leaving hundreds missing and destroying more than 9,800 homes.

If you want to know where media bias resides, simply look at who the media isn’t questioning. The most recent row between CNN’s Jim Acosta and President Donald Trump reinforced this observation. On the heels of the Trump Administration’s decision to revoke the press pass for Jim Acosta (which a D.C. judge has since ordered the White House to reinstate), the “mainstream” media backed Acosta in decrying the purported assault on America’s hallowed First Amendment. Piggybacking on the mainstream media’s argument, the New York Times’ “True Conservative™,” Bret Stephens, shared his fear that the United States will resemble autocratic Turkey

So CNN’s Jim Acosta scored some court points with a ruling that orders the White House to give back his press pass, at least for the time being. But he still presents as a smug elitist. He presented as an out-of-touch elitist the day he jerked away from the arm of the reaching White House intern — the day he refused to cede the microphone and cede the floor and cede his time to the many other journalists who were patiently waiting to pose questions to the president. But post-ruling, caught on camera walking from the courthouse,

The race for Governor of Georgia between Republican Brian Kemp and Democrat Stacey Abrams wasn’t particularly close. Kemp won by 55,000 votes. But since the election, Abrams has tried to position herself for a recount, or something, that might magically erase that impressive margin. Today she gave up, sort of: Stacey Abrams halted her run for Georgia governor Friday, but the Democrat said she would not concede the contest to Republican Brian Kemp and planned to launch a voting rights group to file “major” litigation challenging election policies. There will be no such “major” litigation. What would it challenge?

The possibility of a permanent U.S. military base in Poland moved a few steps forward this week. U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis met with his Polish counterpart Mariusz Blaszczak Tuesday to discuss Poland’s offer to spend $2 billion on a permanent base for U.S. troops and their families in the country. The base was jokingly called “Fort Trump” by Poland’s president after meetings with U.S. President Donald Trump. “We are working out the details on what the offer is, what can best contribute to alliance unity, to alliance security and to the continued strengthening of the bilateral relationship,”

Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for adult film actress Stormy Daniels, lost a last-ditch appeal Friday to block the eviction of his law practice from its Newport Beach offices. In a brief hearing at Orange County Superior Court in Santa Ana, Judge Robert J. Moss affirmed his Oct. 22nd order that Avenatti and his staff vacate their ocean-view suite in a building across from the Fashion Island mall. He ordered them to leave by Monday. Avenatti’s longtime law firm, Eagan Avenatti, skipped $213,254 in rent payments due over four months, leading the landlord, the Irvine Co., to sue for eviction.

Two southern Republican gubernatorial candidates are ready to move into their governor mansions after appearing to have pulled off victories in their races but their never-say-die Democratic opponents are refusing to give up – though the writing is on the wall. In Florida, the contest for governor between Republican Ron DeSantis and Democrat Andrew Gillum appeared all but over Thursday, with a machine recount showing DeSantis with a large enough advantage over Gillum to avoid a hand recount in that race. The latest numbers posted online by the state of Florida show DeSantis with more than 33,683 votes than Gillum.

It has been speculated that Mitt Romney’s Utah Senate seat could serve as a prelude to another Presidential run. In the most ambitious version of events, he could even challenge Donald Trump in the 2020 primaries, newly legitimized and augmented by his actions in the Capitol Building. This would allow moderate Republicans to reclaim their party’s mantle and unroot alt-right influences. But would Romney do it? His willingness to unequivocally challenge Trump could be seen either as a pro or con by Republicans, depending on their opinions of the sitting president.

A top elections official in Florida who endured national humiliation after missing a midterms recount deadline by two minutes has told the Guardian that racism is “probably” a factor in the backlash against her. Brenda Snipes, elections supervisor of Broward county, was condemned by Republicans and Democrats after failing to submit tallies in the US Senate race between Rick Scott and Bill Nelson on schedule.

That’s what they feel like they need to do.”

Championing the cause of the poor, Pope Francis on Sunday lamented that "the wealthy few" enjoy what, "in justice, belongs to all" and said Christians cannot remain indifferent to the growing cries of the exploited and the indigent, including migrants. Francis invited about 6,000 poor people as well as some of the volunteers who help them to the splendor of St. Peter´s Basilica where he celebrated Mass on a day the Catholic Church dedicates to the needy. Later, he sat down with 1,500 of the indigent for a lunch of lasagna, chicken, mashed potatoes and tiramisu in a Vatican auditorium.

Broward County’s ballot recount hit yet another snag Saturday with 2,040 ballots lost or misplaced. The county’s eternally beleaguered Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes said they were either misplaced, misfiled or mixed in with another stack. One thing she said she was sure of was that the ballots were still in the building. “The ballots are in this building. There would be nowhere else for them to be,” Snipes said. “The ballots are in the building.

Michelle Obama raged against the risk of her "integration and/or assimilation into a White cultural and social structure" in her Princeton University thesis. I reviewed this document, remarkable for its rancor as well as for its orthographical dysfunction, during her husband´s first presidential campaign ten years ago. Now that Mrs. Obama has emerged as a prospective candidate for the 2020 presidential election, her radical rant is worth another look.Below is my 2008 Asia Times essay.

WATCH: (Video)Throughout the course of the interview, Tapper pressed Abrams several times on the issue — and she repeatedly refused to use the word “legitimate.” “Sherrod Brown says the election was stolen.

So CNN’s Jim Acosta scored some court points with a ruling that orders the White House to give back his press pass, at least for the time being. But he still presents as a smug elitist. He presented as an out-of-touch elitist the day he jerked away from the arm of the reaching White House intern — the day he refused to cede the microphone and cede the floor and cede his time to the many other journalists who were patiently waiting to pose questions to the president.
