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 Russia Investigations: An Unfinished
Case Looks Weaker Than Ever
National Public Radio, by Philip Ewing    Original Article

Political and legal danger for President Trump may be sharpening by the day, but the case that his campaign might have conspired with the Russian attack on the 2016 election looks weaker than ever. Trump has been implicated in ordering a scheme to silence two women ahead of Election Day in 2016 about the alleged sexual relationships they had with him years before. That is a serious matter, or it might have been in other times, but it is decidedly not a global conspiracy with a foreign power to steal the election.

In the Donald Trump era, some liberals are confounded by their affection for a figure they would otherwise despise. He is known to them, after all, as one of America’s most enthusiastic warmongers—and the man who first vaulted Sarah Palin to national fame. Yet for all his many episodes of villainy, it’s possible to concede the pleasures of his impish company, especially when he breaks ranks to join your political side. His current career as a pithy critic of the president had led liberal Twitter to endow him with a grudgingly affectionate moniker: He is “Woke Bill Kristol.”

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

Secretary of Defense James Mattis responded to criticisms after he and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave an intelligence brief to Senators on the murder of Saudi Jamal Khashoggi. Sen. 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

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.

Driving along the street the other day, I coasted toward a red stoplight half a block away. A pickup truck loomed large in my rearview mirror. It closed to within a millimeter of my back bumper. I couldn´t see the driver in my mirror because he was about 11 feet off the ground. I saw only the grill of his Ford F350. Or it might have been a Chevy Monstrosity or a Toyota Enormity or a Nissan Malignancy.

Schools in Brighton have been ordered to teach children as young as eight that people “of all genders” can have periods, as well as to install sanitary waste disposal units in every toilet room. The instructions were included in guidelines published by the local council earlier this month on ‘Taking a Period Positive Approach in Brighton & Hove Schools’, which assert there is “more work to do across all settings to prevent and reduce stigma related to periods and talking about periods”. Under the subheading ‘key messages’, teachers are told to stress to pupils that “trans boys and

A South Carolina pastor defended buying his wife a $200,000 Lamborghini Urus as an eighth wedding anniversary present after coming under fire for the purchase. Pastor John Gray, the leader of Relentless Church in Greenville, S.C., came under fire for presenting his wife, Aventer, with the expensive vehicle. A video that went viral, which has since been deleted, showed the pastor surprising his wife with the keys to the luxury vehicle last week, the Charlotte Observer reported. The pastor was criticized by social media users questioning how he could afford the car.

US Rep.-elect Rashida Tlaib will be sworn into office next month while wearing a traditional Palestinian gown. The Michigan Democrat announced on social media Friday that she intends to wear a thobe to the ceremony. "Sneak peek: This is what I am wearing when I am sworn into Congress," she wrote on Instagram, including the hashtags #PalestinianThobe and #ForMyYama (Arabic for mother). (Snip) Following that win, Tlaib appeared at a celebration rally where she was draped in a Palestinian flag and her mother broke out in ululation, a high-pitched vocal sound many Middle Eastern women make in celebration.

While the job of a Green Beret entails eliminating U.S. enemies both here and abroad, one member of the 66-year-old special operations force is now being prosecuted for having done exactly that. According to reports, once-decorated Army Maj. Mathew L. Golsteyn has been charged in the premeditated murder of an Afghani bomb maker suspected of murdering two Marines. The charge stems from actions the former Green Beret took on the field while deployed eight years ago and words he spoke with Fox News host Bret Baier six years afterward.

To see the Clintons on the first night of their new tour, you had to pass under a row of giant Canadian flags. On the second night, everyone spoke French on the way out. Live Nation promises 10 upcoming performances by the Clintons next spring, and if the first two nights mean anything, this will be a tour on which nothing is quite right — a weird blend of darkness and nostalgia, of out-of-place things. Imagine watching the Clintons play a chipper, Newlywed Game–style quiz about their marriage

Hating The President Is Not a Strategy,

Going all in on attacking President Trump isn’t proving to be a particularly effective business strategy for media outlets. The Weekly Standard, a 28-year old neoconservative institution, is reportedly headed towards dissolution after its founder, Bill Kristol, devoted almost three years of work to attacking the President and his supporters. It’s not just Kristol. The entire world of clickbait Trump-hate seems to be in jeopardy, including sites that cater to the liberal base. The same week that The Weekly Standard’s troubles broke, Vanity Fair dropped a bombshell report about the struggles faced by those hip, millennial-targeted left-wing rags

President Donald Trump has bashed one of the loudest neoconservative ´Never Trumpers´, Bill Kristol, seizing on news that Kristol´s anti-Trump Weekly Standard magazine is folding. ´The pathetic and dishonest Weekly Standard, run by failed prognosticator Bill Kristol (who, like many others, never had a clue), is flat broke and out of business. Too bad. May it rest in peace!´ Trump tweeted on Saturday morning. It follows an announcement on Friday that the Weekly Standard, which Kristol co-founded in 1995, will be ceasing publication. Kristol, an avid Twitter user, responded to Trump´s tweet simply: ´@ me next time´. (Tweet/Photos) Trump´s attack

MSNBC host Joy Reid and her guest Elie Mystal spent a segment fantasizing about Ivanka Trump being in the “crosshairs” and openly scheming about how the best way to “get” President Donald Trump would be to go after his children. The sinister conversation, in which they urged the left to put the mother and wife “in their crosshairs” occurred on Saturday’s show. “This is the first time that we have Ivanka . . . in the crosshairs . . . The only way we’re really going to get to Trump is if you go after his kids . . .

Have you gotten your flu shot this year? If the answer is no - and I´m not getting one! - you´re not alone. A new study finds more than 40 percent of Americans have not been vaccinated and, in fact, don´t plan on it either. This is despite the warnings, potential dangers, and last year´s record-number of flu deaths. The survey was done by the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago. People under the age of 45 were the least likely to report being vaccinated.

The Weekly Standard will be no more. There is no real reason we are witnessing the magazine’s demise other than deep pettiness and a personal desire for bureaucratic revenge on the part of a penny-ante Machiavellian who works for its parent company. There would at least be a larger meaning to the Standard’s end if it were being killed because it was hostile to Donald Trump. But I do not believe that is the case.
