House Democrats’ hope for wave election
diminishes as Republicans rebound

Washington Post, by Sean Sullivan

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 10/20/2018 9:43:38 PM

Democratic hopes for a wave election that would carry them to a significant House majority have been tempered in recent weeks amid a shifting political landscape and a torrent of hard-hitting attack ads from Republicans. Democrats remain favored to win, but GOP leaders believe they can minimize the number of seats they would lose — and, perhaps, find a path to preserving their advantage in the chamber. The tightening, with just over two weeks left, reflects how President Trump’s rising approval rating and the polarizing fight over Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh appear to be boosting the party’s candidates

translation: We tried to influence voters as long as possible, but as election day nears, we need to hedge our predictions, so we won´t lose all credibility.

I was at the Trump rally in Mesa, AZ yesterday. What a thrill! It was worth the 11 hour day. The crowd was fantastic. I think the venue was too small though. Today I wore my MAGA hat to an event in Tempe and got so many positive comments. I hope that is a sign of what is to come. Thank you, Mr. president, for being so accessible to America.

I found this article to be a text book example of biased reporting, all of it aimed to get Democrats to the polls. So, the constructive Republican response is to vote, get your friends and families to vote, give whatever you can, even if it´s only a few bucks, to close but winnable races, wherever they may be. Unless there is another seismic political event between now and Nov. 6th, it looks like the Senate will remain R. So the House races should be our focus. If the D´s take the House, much of President Trump´s outstanding agenda will be reversed, the D´s want to overturn the tax cuts, and will never fund the wall. And there is no doubt that the rat Nadler (D-NY) will open an investigation into Kavanaugh (hasn´t that man withstood enough?!?, and the shamefully disingenuous Schiff will end the investigation into the corrupted deep swamp in DC. Pelosi would impeach Mr. Trump in a heartbeat if she gets the gavel to do it.

Doug Jones Risks His Alabama Senate
Seat Over the Shutdown and the Wall
New York Times, by Lisa Lerer    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 1/19/2019 8:39:55     Post Reply
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — After Doug Jones scored an upset win in the Alabama Senate race in 2017, elated Democrats nationwide dreamed of winning in other deeply red corners of the country. Mr. Jones seemed to offer a model, rejecting labels like progressive or conservative and calling himself a “Doug Jones Democrat.” (Snip) Mr. Jones is the only red-state Senate Democrat up for re-election in 2020. By taking on President Trump and the border wall, which are both popular in Alabama, and refusing to give ground on the shutdown, the senator may be the last “Doug Jones Democrat” to win

Gladys Knight´s decision to sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl has stirred controversy. The legendary singer is being criticized for agreeing to take the gig in light of some fans boycotting the National Football League over its treatment of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick has not been hired by an NFL team since he found himself at the center of debate for taking a knee at games during the National Anthem in protest of racial injustice. The NFL announced Thursday that Knight would be performing at Super Bowl LIII, which is being held in

Gillette is doubling down on a controversial new campaign that appears aimed at taking on so-called toxic masculinity — but has created a social media firestorm. The two-minute video from Boston-based razor brand Gillette urges men to act against sexual harassment, misogyny and bullying, asking: “Is this the best a man can get?” While fans are applauding the move, critics say it assumes men need to be steered away from negative tendencies. The ad starts off with audio of news about the #MeToo movement, saying, “We can’t hide from it. It has been going on far too long. We

In the past two months, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has fractured three ribs and had two cancerous nodules removed from her left lung. She was absent from oral argument last week and will miss this week’s arguments as well. Doctors say they expect her to be back on the bench in February, and until then she will review transcripts from her home and participate in the court’s decision-making remotely. But her return to work has not quieted critics who say that Ginsburg should have retired long ago and that her health issues are the latest evidence that justices should not be

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi exacted revenge against one of her most outspoken detractors Tuesday night, blocking Rep. Kathleen Rice from landing a seat on the high-profile House Judiciary Committee. Pelosi lobbied for other members to join the panel over Rice, leaving the third-term New York Democrat off a list of her preferred members for the committee during a tense closed-door meeting Tuesday night, according to multiple sources. The effort came despite a full-court push from the New York delegation to secure a spot for Rice, a former prosecutor, on the panel that oversees everything from impeachment to guns to immigration.

Snowpack In The West Has Resisted Climate

For the last 35 years, the snowpack in the West’s mountains has resisted the impacts of global warming. But that could soon change, according to a new study out of Oregon State University. The study, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, found that although climate change should have caused a steep decrease in snowpack, naturally occurring, decades-long weather variations shielded the Cascades, Sierras and Rockies from some of the effects. Although snow stations have recorded some decline, it hasn’t been statistically significant. But according to the study, without this natural weather variation, snowpack in Oregon could have declined

The federal government shutdown has presented a unique opportunity for President Donald Trump to clear out the deadwood in the federal bureaucracy, saving U.S. taxpayers billions of dollars in salaries, perks, and rented office space for people who aren´t doing anything productive. At the same time, Trump can get rid of dozens, possibly even hundreds of Deep State operatives in the government, handpicked by Barack Obama and Bill Clinton for their loyalty to the Democratic Party, not their country or the law.

A near majority of Republicans do not have a favorable view of freshman Senator Willard “Mitt” Romney (R-UT), according to a PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist poll released on Thursday. The poll, conducted January 10-13, found 48% of “Republicans and conservative-leaning” have an “unfavorable” view Romney. Just 29% view Romney favorably while another 23% are “unsure” or “never heard” of him. Never Trumpers like Bill Kristol have said Romney is now the “leader of the Republican Resistance to” President Donald Trump, and the PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist poll again shows how unpopular of a label that is among Republicans.
