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.

Former San Antonio mayor and Obama administration cabinet member Julián Castro is launching a presidential exploratory committee ahead of a scheduled January 12 announcement about his future political plans. “Some people might say that it’s early, but I believe you have to be decisive,” he told the Associated Press in an interview Wednesday, adding that he will spend the next month traveling and listening to people—and likely trying to generate commitments of support from key Democrats. “I know where I’m leaning for sure.” An adviser said the 44-year-old Castro has all but decided to throw his hat

The aim of the victims’ rights movement, which arose in the 1970s and has swept through every state in the union and changed federal laws in the years since, is often summed up simply: Crime victims have the right to be “informed, present and heard.” All these rights were trampled by Alexander Acosta, formerly the U.S. attorney in South Florida and currently U.S. secretary of labor, when he struck a secret deal with wealthy sex offender Jeffrey Epstein to shield Epstein from federal investigation and prosecution.Though Acosta was in possession of a 53-page draft indictment charging that the well-connected financier

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.

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

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

Trump attorneys ask Stormy Daniels to

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.

NeverTrump Clings To Russia Collusion
Conspiracy Theory Despite Lack Of Evidence

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 —

Getting dead, someone once observed, always does a lot for a person’s social standing.

The organization has been fending off lawsuits over alleged abuse, including one filed by four former scouts who called the club a “pedophile magnet” and alleged that they were molested by scoutmaster Waldron Ackerman between 1974 and 1976. The organization has reportedly lost two-thirds of its members — some 4 million boys —

Woke 29-year-old Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went after White House Chief of Staff John Kelly yesterday. Why? She wants him to apologize to Democrat Rep. Frederica Wilson for supposedly "lying" about her to reporters.(tweet)"Cowardice." Quite a big word to use against a four-star Marine Corps general whose son was killed in Afghanistan. Wilson´s spat with Kelly came last year when she alleged President Trump disrespected a military family during a phone call. Kelly disputed her characterization and gave a briefing to the White House press corps on how the military handles casualties.

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

Two groups of migrants from Central America marched to the American consulate in Tijuana, Mexico, yesterday, with a list of demands to the Trump administration. One of them asked the American president to either let them in the country or pay them $50,000 each to go home, a report said. The first group, including about 100 migrants, arrived at the consulate around 11am on Tuesday. Alfonso Guerreo Ulloa, an organizer from Honduras, told the San Diego Union-Tribune that the $50,000 figure is not a very big sum. ´It may seem like a lot of money to you,´ he said.

New York Times opinion writer Jennifer Weiner told CBS This Morning hosts that holiday office parties are nothing more than another opportunity for women to be sexually harassed. In her article titled “The Torture of Dressing for Your Office Holiday Party,” Weiner described the holiday season as “the least wonderful time of the year.” “Why are we having holiday parties at all?” complained Weiner to Gayle King on Monday morning. “Wouldn’t you rather have an extra $100 in your paycheck than have to put on the Spanx, put on the heels, be social with the guy with, like, the stale coffee breath

When Professor Christine Blasey-Ford testified against the Supreme Court nomination of then-Judge Bret Kavanaugh, my very first impression was that her voice sounded fake. She sounded like a scared little girl, her voice tremulous, creating an impression of sadness and vulnerability. (snip) For the first time since her testimony, we now have the opportunity to hear her voice, and guess what? She doesn’t sound at all like the witness whose fear and suffering moved so many Democrats and feminists. She sounds like a grown-up, a professor indeed.

MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski had to apologize for what some perceived to be a homophobic joke on Morning Joe Wednesday. Brzezinski called Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was “wannabe dictator’s butt-boy.” “I understand that Donald Trump doesn’t care, Heilemann makes a good point, he doesn’t care. But why doesn’t Mike Pompeo care right now?” Mika Brzezinski said of Pompeo’s response to a question about the killing of Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi. She continued, “Are the pathetic deflections that we just heard when he appeared on Fox & Friends, is that a patriot speaking? Or a wannabe dictator’s butt-boy?” Mika’s joke

EXCLUSIVE – President Trump has canceled the White House holiday party for the media, making the decades-old tradition a victim of his increasingly contentious relationship with major news organizations. The annual Christmas-season gathering was a significant perk for those covering the White House, as well as other Washington reporters, anchors and commentators, and New York media executives would regularly fly in for the occasion. At its peak, the invitation-only soirees grew so large that there were two back-to-back events, one for broadcast outlets and one for print organizations.
