For Trump, challenge of governing with
Dem House, but full speed ahead with GOP Senate

Washington Examiner, by Byron York

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/7/2018 4:59:48 AM

It took a while for President Trump to get used to working with the Republican-led Congress, but he developed a style of dealing with lawmakers that led to the passage of tax reform and a number of smaller measures. Now, though, with Democrats winning control of the House, Trump faces the challenge of working with an empowered opposition whose leaders are motivated by intense animus toward the president -- and who will have the ability to stop any Trump legislative initiatives cold. On the other hand, with the Republicans keeping and strengthening control

Under the "leadership" of Boehner/Ryan,I don´t see any real difference between then and now.
I expect President Trump to continue with the peoples agenda and not the swamp´s...

I agree with a previous LDotter´s analysis in that the Dims will overplay their hand so poorly in the next 2 years it will guarantee a Trump re-election. Hopefully the House will flip back too.

You can´t reason with a commie. It´s always their way or the highway. At least now, any particular RINO can´t be blamed for anything. Botox Nancy will completely own her freak show´s destruction.

Kind of bittersweet but, I´ll take it. Could have been far worse. But, a strange outcome in an age of full employment, prosperity, and personal fulfillment. But, hate seemed to prevail to an extent.

Holding onto to the Senate was obviously critical. Taking Judicial away from the dims for a very long time was top priority. And hopefully another SCOTUS nomination will be at hand. Job done, despite an evil msm.

But, the House, what a disappointment. Yes, the dim attack ads worked, Soros´, Steyer´s, and Bloomberg´s money made a difference, and the lofo voter were swayed. Yes, the msm again influenced the outcome. The conservative resolve was certainly there, but, not enough of us. There was not enough willingness by the lofos to understand the serious trajectory the country is on.

Now it´s on to 2020. Over the next two years, you will see it all. Speaker Pelousi, Chairman Waters, Chairman Schiff, Chairman Cummings will see to it. It will be all there to enjoy.

Might I strongly suggest that we step it up now and commit the next two years to ignore the msm, educate the lofos, restore House control, continue to hold the Senate, and prepare to re-elect Donald J. Trump as President of the United States.

GOP Senate victories (and pickups) yesterday will last six years.

Democrat Congresscritter victories (and pickups) will last but two years.

And President Trump "has a pen and a phone".

Console yourselves all you want, but this is catastrophic. Pelosi has made clear she will move to impeach our President. Sure, the Senate will never convict and remove; they didn´t do that to Klintoon either. But it will tie up and derail much of what could have been phase two of MAGA. When GW Bush won by the narrowest of margins in 2000, with evidence of cheating by the dimms, I thought: finally, something will be done to reduce vote fraud. But no. Then when PDJT had both houses of Congress, I thought SURELY now something will be done. But no. So now this. I am confident this election was crooked; all the others were.

POTUS should drag Ryan into the WH and Order him to work 7 days a week between now and new years to get his agenda done. Fund the Wall, Pass a Budget, more tax cuts, restore property tax deduction to blue states, and anything else he wants done.

This loss falls at the feet of Ryan and McConnell and all the RINO´s who decided not to run for re-election in the house. A pox on all of them!

The house Democrats are energized with two primary goals for the next election: get reelected and defeat their arch enemy President Trump. A corrupt Democratic congress aided by a corrupt news media will pursue Republicans with false charges of corruption in office, staged hearings, show trials, and perjury charges. Republicans they cannot falsely jail will be hounded out of office. Good people will not want to replace them. I fear America has dark times ahead. Dear God, please bless us in these dangerous times.

With the added GOP to the Senate, lets hope that 2 more Supreme Court judges retire and we can re-enforce the SC with Conservative Judges.

The Dems will Over Play their hand, They ALWAYS do. Pelosi is a walking freak show and she never makes any sense when she talks even the media can´t let it slide.

I´m not worried. We have the Senate and the Presidency.

How many of these lost seats were held by RINOs or never-trumpers? Could that be why some of them lost? As others have pointed out, apart from the tax cuts the pubbies in congress have not given Trump much of what he wants.

What if they had gone full steam ahead with a MAGA agenda? I guess we´ll never know.

I agree that the Republicans in the House need to get that Wall funded before the end of the year. Unfortunately, Ryan won´t be any help at all to do that! I think Democrats are so filled with Hate they will spend the next two years trying to get revenge on Trump instead of using their time to pass laws and get things done. Voters will get tired of that and in the end, Dems will lose the House again in 2020! The Senate is now going to be able to do things without Two Ladies calling the shots. They now have no leverage! Unfortunately, Romney will be a problem!

Actually, I kind of hope that the dims impeach Trump.....they have a marked tendency to overplay their hands, and just because they impeach doesn´t guarantee conviction in the Senate, especially with the pick up of the seats the GOP has gotten.
And let´s go back to the Project Veritas video of Gillams´s campaign, and the campaign manager´s "fairy tale beginning" of "Once we´re elected"--the dims can´t pass anything into law without the Senate also passing it, so the tax cuts are safe, and the wall that the RINOs wouldn´t pass, still won´t and any attempt to nullify Trump´s first two years won´t go anywhere as well.
What we get with a stronger Senate is Trump´s cabinet appointments and SCOTUS picks more safely secured.
Actually, the dims will overplay their hand to the point that they assist a Trump re-election, and help ensure their loss of the House in two years.

Is it possible to force Ryan to resign immediately and then put in Jim Jordan as Speaker until January 2019? He could push through the people’s agenda. After all, we voted for it and Ryan ignored and obstructed it in any way he could. Why let him just hang on and do nothing. I know I am grasping at straws but if we don’t get this immigration crisis settled before January, nothing will get done in the next two years. Do you have any idea how many “migrants” will rush the border? It won’t matter what happens then. The democrats will have their voter base reinforced.

Miss Nancy talked about bipartisanship, which means she still needs some GOP support to pass around the NO vote on contentious issues. We will now see if Hillarys promise of a return to civility when the RATS control part of the government applies. It was going to be tough to keep the house with so many deadwood GOP retirements but at least the fewer members will be more serious, and build for the future with commitment to principle.

Tell me why the Republicans cannot pass all sorts of ready to pass legislation before Jan 3? They have the power right now to do it; they have the incentive given at least the possibility that they may not have this opportunity for a long time. They can and should prove they are willing to finally do what they said they would do back in the Tea Party days when they were in the minority. Trump is ready to sign Obamacare elimination, border wall appropriation, swamp elimination legislation and the list is long and ready, so just do it now. We have the power still. Use it. Call your representatives.

This is their job & what they were hired to do. None of these pampered sissies know what real work is. Not a one could keep up the President’s pace if their lives depended on it.

Don´t forget the 36 incumbent Republicans who decided to retire before the mid-terms. They are why we lost the House.

Regardless, it certainly could have been worse and considering the 100% negative msm coverage of Trump, I think we did remarkably well.

Have faith, dear LDotters! The next two years will further showcase how crazy and anti-American the DemocRATs really are and it just might help Trump in 2020! MAGA KAG

My main concern about the House is the composition of it, that there is an increasing number of socialist, radical, even now a couple of (so it appears) radical-bent Muslims, on the Dem side.

We can deal with liberal-leaning politicians, IF they are Patriotic, loyal Americans who have sworn, according to the Oath, to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.

If you are under sharia, you can NOT swear allegiance to any other entity other than sharia.

So we also need to focus attention on States which have gone Blue, such as NH, even though we still have a Republican Governor, and Maine, these two in particular.

They are roadmaps for Texas and Florida and Arizona and a few others, encroaching on the center, the Heartland.

This is how socialism can overtake our Republic, and fast. All the while, ignorant people are inviting this rapacious ideology in through their front door, the Big Bad Wolf, dressed like a generous old Granny... but she´s got poisoned apples in her basket.

Ask a person who thinks socialism is good, why every socialist country collapses rapidly, and why they never fully, or ever, recover, and why most of those regimes resort to violence to maintain power?

And if you don´t think it can happen here, you´re naive The "fundamental transformation" was begun openly by BO. These people do not intend to back off.

The allure of San Antonio’s Castro brothers has been building for years and their status as the crown princes of a new era of Texas Hispanic politics is now well established.

But something happened this election cycle: Beto O’Rourke. As the Democratic consultant said, “Julián and his brother are like Bing Crosby and Perry Como—who just saw Elvis.”

Amid the violations of law by Broward and Palm Beach County elections officials, the data provides apparent good news for Republicans. First, despite the national media´s typical laziness and derelictions, the local press has largely been assiduous and conscientious -- certain framing aside. Second, core concerns raised by leading Republicans (some of which were rhetorically overblown) have been validated by multiple judges. The ineptitude and misconduct has not gone unnoticed.

Who Lost The House? John McCain

The Republican Party lost its House majority on July 28, 2017, when Sen. John McCain ended the party’s seven-year quest to repeal ObamaCare. House leadership had done an admirable job herding cats. On the second try, we passed the American Health Care Act in May. Then McCain’s inscrutable vote against the Senate’s “skinny repeal” killed the reform effort. McCain’s last-minute decision prompted a “green wave” of liberal special-interest money, which was used to propagate false claims that the House plan “gutted coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.” That line was the Democrats’ most potent attack

Tuesday’s midterms served up mixed results, handing both parties big wins and big losses. It will take some time to sort out what it means. Yet the evening did nonetheless provide one total, complete, unalloyed loser: Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren. For a decade Ms. Warren, 69, has been busy trying to remake Washington in her progressive image. Her role in creating a new financial regulatory apparatus gave her outsize influence over the bureaucracy. Her successful 2012 Senate bid gave her a megaphone to rail against “billionaires, bigots and Wall Street bankers”—and Donald Trump.

Amid the inevitable outrage fest touched off by the election results, hardcore partisans on the left solidified around one particular angry narrative: If and when Democrats lose, it is because white women remain insufficiently woke. The Usual Suspects crafted this argument around exit polls of the Senate race in Texas, which revealed that white women broke for Republican incumbent Ted Cruz by a significant margin — 60 percent cast ballots for him rather than for Robert Francis O’Rourke (“Beto” to you), who received just 39 percent of their support.

A federal judge handed CNN a major victory on Friday, ruling that President Donald Trump White House must temporarily restore the press credentials it stripped from the network´s chief White House correspondent last week while a lawsuit plays out. Judge Timothy Kelly ruled that Jim Acosta´s First Amendment press rights trump the administration´s right to have orderly press conferences. He declared that the White House failed to give Acosta ´due process,´ something guaranteed in government proceedings under the Fifth Amendment. ´I want to thank all of my colleagues in the press who supported us this week,´ Acosta told other reporters outside the federal

CHICAGO — To read the worshipful press coverage you’d never know that, for Democrats, the unthinkable has happened: Michelle Obama has revealed herself as just another guru for sale. On Tuesday night, the former first lady kicked off her 10-city North American book tour, which more closely resembled a cult-of-personality-propaganda-rally, at the United Center in Chicago. (Dates have been added in London, where scalped tickets are going for over $90,000 each, and Paris.) A sliver of the 20,000 seats available for the Chicago event were priced at $29.50, and those sold out within five minutes of going on sale in September.
