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.

Every year starting in late August and ending sometime around late February, Hollywood is consumed with winning an eight-and-a-half-pound gold trophy. Even in a world overrun with awards shows, the Oscars remain the grandest prize, and a Best Picture victory cements filmmakers and actors’ place in history. It also means that, for the rest of time, a lot of people will complain that your movie wasn’t that great and should have lost to some other movie they felt was eminently more deserving. It’s very easy to second-guess the Academy on its Best Picture picks, but while putting together

$1,973 LEDs and the Green New Deal

The Green New Deal that Democrats unveiled last week has a grand ambition to eliminate fossil fuels in 10 years, retrofit every building in America, and guarantee high-paying jobs in the bargain. If you want to see how that works in the real world, consider the public housing projects near Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s New York office. The New York City Housing Authority (Nycha) has a more modest goal of a 30% reduction in greenhouse-gas emissions by 2027. As part of its plan, Nycha is switching to LED lighting,which lasts longer than incandescent bulbs and consumes less energy.

It’s fitting that William Barr’s confirmation as attorney general happened just as two powerful law-enforcement figures were trading accusations involving President Trump. Mr. Barr’s greatest challenge isn’t antitrust deals, immigration policy or even handling special counsel Robert Mueller. His overriding challenge is to reboot a Justice Department that has shredded its reputation and lost the confidence of Congress and the public. It’s hard to feel confident in law enforcement when a former deputy director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Andrew McCabe, reveals

VATICAN CITY—Cardinal Sean O’Malley of Boston, chief adviser to Pope Francis on protecting children from sexual abuse, called a meeting with top papal aides in 2017, concerned the Vatican wasn’t living up to its promise of “zero tolerance.” An appeals panel set up by the pope had reduced the punishments of a number of Catholic priests found guilty of abusing minors. In some cases, the panel canceled their dismissal from the priesthood and gave them short suspensions instead. “If this gets out, it will cause a scandal,” Cardinal O’Malley told Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin,

It is clear that the United States government, far more than the Russian one, interfered in the 2016 campaign. Figures throughout the Obama administration were using their power to investigate Hillary Clinton’s opponent and leaking that information to pols like Harry Reid and sympathetic members of the press to hurt Trump. Many of those figures — from John Brennan to James Comey to Susan Rice — appear on television these days displaying the very anti-Trump bias that drove their official actions during the campaign.

How many other people watched the entire 80 or 85 minutes of President Trump’s rally in El Paso, Texas, Monday night on Fox? The pre-rally expectation was that this event would be an effort to build support for the border wall. Instead, it obviously was a test-run of issues for the 2020 campaign, covering everything from A to Zzz. At 9:55 ET, Sean Hannity cut away from the speech to denounce the border deal emerging in Washington. Then it was back to the rally’s remaining 40 minutes. It was strangely mesmerizing.

(snip) the home of the two "persons of interests" in the widely circulated community alert was raided by Chicago police. In that raid, they seized a list of items including multiple containers of bleach, a "red hat," an Empire script, a Mossberg rifle, and two computers. The home is occupied by the two men, and at least one is an extra on Jussie Smollett´s show, Empire.

Friday on KABC radio in Los Angeles, conservative commentator Ann Coulter reacted to President Donald Trump saying she was “off the reservation,” during his press conference this morning. Explaining that building the border wall was Trump’s mandate, Coulter said, “It was one thing, the promise he made every single day at every single speech.” She added, “So forget the fact that he’s digging his own grave. This is just — look the only national emergency is that our president is an idiot.” Coulter did praise the president regarding the courts by saying, “In defense of Trump supporters and those who fell for his

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) is running to become the first black female president. But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black. I was born black. I will die black,”

President Donald Trump demanded Wednesday evening that the State of California return $3.5 billion in federal funds after Gov. Gavin Newsom canceled most of the state’s high-speed rail project, saying it was too expensive. “California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars,” the president tweeted. “They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back now. Whole project is a “green” disaster!”

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district. The project reportedly would have entailed

MUNICH — Speaking on German soil 75 years after the U.S. and its allies prepared for D-Day, Joe Biden described America as "an embarrassment" and its trade policies "self-defeating." "The America I see values basic human decency, not snatching children from their parents or turning our back on refugees at our border. Americans know that’s not right,” the former vice president and potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate told the Munich Security Conference. "The American people understand plainly that this makes us an embarrassment. The American people know, overwhelmingly, that it is not right.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld launched a presidential exploratory committee in New Hampshire Friday, making him the first Republican officially eying a longshot GOP primary challenge to President Donald Trump. “I’m here because I think our country is in grave peril,” Weld said at an announcement at a “Politics and Eggs” breakfast in New Hampshire, a frequent stop for presidential candidates. “I cannot sit quietly on the sidelines any longer.” "We cannot sit passively as our precious democracy slips quietly into darkness," he said. Weld, who served as governor in the Bay State from 1991 to 1997, was the Libertarian Party

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a chorus of cheers as Amazon announced it was abandoning plans to build a sought-after headquarters in New York City. Activists berated the online giant for a $3 billion package of tax breaks she said the city could better invest

If Washington, D.C. were a better place, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe would be swiftly run out of town. He was fired last year for lying to the FBI’s inspector general at least four times regarding serious questions about multiple abuses that occurred while McCabe sat in a powerful and unelected office. These abuses included working with former FBI director James Comey to set up former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus for obstruction charges, slow-walking and sabotaging the investigation of yet unseen Hillary Clinton emails found on Anthony Weiner’s computer just before the 2016 election,

Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest under oath. And yet, America owes him a big thank-you. McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016. There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department

WASHINGTON – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s relationship with boyfriend Riley Roberts is official. Roberts has been granted a government “house.gov” email address so he can access Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional calendar, the 29-year-old congresswoman confirmed Friday. Spouses of members of Congress are afforded privileges, such as a House email address, a congressional pin to bypass security and a House license plate to enter Capitol grounds and enjoy parking privileges, House aides say. While he’s not officially a spouse, Roberts can have access to House email for calendar purposes, according to the office of the Chief Administrative Officer of the House. “From time to
