Opposition to Pelosi hardens
Politico, by Rachel Bade and John Bresnahan

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 11/9/2018 5:00:03 AM

Ten Democratic incumbents or members-elect told Politico that they will vote against Nancy Pelosi for speaker on the House floor, exposing a serious problem for the California Democrat in her bid to reclaim the gavel. Eight sitting lawmakers or their offices said on Thursday that they will oppose Pelosi on the floor. Two candidates who won on Tuesday previously said the same. That’s an issue for Pelosi, who has led the Democratic caucus for 16 years, and significantly narrows her margin for error in her bid to lock down the 218 votes needed to return to the speakership. Pelosi’s office dismissed the notion that she wouldn´t get

Sadly, any wide eyed Pelosi replacement will likely make her look rational.

Trump should offer her a deal: Republicans vote for her, if she drops the investigation and impeachment nonsense. And we want a wall.

It would be a hoot if she needed Trump allies on the republican side to vote for her. I don´t think that has ever happened in the U.S. - it would be much like European countries with parliaments, and coalitions.
In the meantime, warm up the Air Force 757 for her California highness, and stock the liquor.
Her highness likes to fly high. And non stop.
That way, she avoids the commoners.
DJT, by the way, displayed his political genius by endorsing her for Speaker.
Finally, will the black caucus members play the always present race card, and demand a lot of chairmanships? And will they demand the expansion of black caucus scholarships?

Talk is cheap. When the dust settles, Pelosi will be speaker and all the newbies who said they wouldn´t vote for her will be exposed in their first lie to their constituents.

This will be proof of my two caveats on Democrat promises:

1. No promise valid after election day.

2. No promise valid inside DC Beltway.

Hint -- Buy liquor stocks, especially those that have contracts to stock government offices, including Ms. Pelosi´s weekly 757 trip to SF.

We’ll see. The CBC wants a black to hold the speaker position so the demonrats may be looking at a racial civil war in their midst. Let’s see if they tell their black membership to sit down, shut up and get back on the plantation.

Florida’s DeSantis, Georgia’s Kemp look certain to
win governorships – but Dems won’t give up fight
Fox News, by Alex Pappas    Original Article

Two southern Republican gubernatorial candidates are ready to move into their governor mansions after appearing to have pulled off victories in their races but their never-say-die Democratic opponents are refusing to give up – though the writing is on the wall. In Florida, the contest for governor between Republican Ron DeSantis and Democrat Andrew Gillum appeared all but over Thursday, with a machine recount showing DeSantis with a large enough advantage over Gillum to avoid a hand recount in that race. The latest numbers posted online by the state of Florida show DeSantis with more than 33,683 votes than Gillum.

Dartmouth Lawsuit Says School
Allowed ‘Animal House’ Culture

Seven current and former Dartmouth College students filed a lawsuit in federal court against the Ivy League school, alleging it ignored an “animal house” atmosphere created by three professors in the school’s department of psychology and brain sciences. The lawsuit, which seeks $70 million in damages, claims the professors “leered at, groped, sexted, intoxicated and raped female students.” It alleges the professors conducted meetings at bars, invited students to late-night hot tub parties in their homes and invited undergraduate students to use cocaine during class.

Obvious Double Standard On Recusals

The installation of Matthew Whitaker as the acting attorney general has the recusal pundits barking like shelter dogs in the presence of a trespassing squirrel. In case you’re wondering how the recusal rules work, it’s simply a matter of whether it helps or hurts Trump. Don’t believe me? See if you can detect a pattern. Since Whitaker might rein in the special counsel, he must be recused, they argue. Similarly, when it appeared former attorney general Jeff Sessions might help Trump, he acceded to demands he recuse himself. But Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein

Obama Judges Can’t Save Dem Losers

Obama-appointed federal judges have brazenly rewritten election statutes to favor Democrats challenging the outcomes of races in Florida and Georgia. In both states, however, the apparent losers haven’t benefited from arbitrary changes these partisan jurists made in the laws by which election officials are legally bound. Thursday, for example, an Obama appointee changed the rules governing how mail-in ballots with signature mismatches must be handled in Florida — just hours before the legally-mandated recount deadline. In Georgia, two Obama appointees changed the rules regarding how to count incomplete absentee ballots, provisional ballots,

Why the Brexit chaos has only just begun

British politics and markets are in chaos because Prime Minister Theresa May can’t sell her long-awaited Brexit plan — and no one knows what comes next. After British voters narrowly approved a withdrawal from the European Union in 2016, we felt the United Kingdom would be better off — able to make its own decisions on trade and immigration and free from lunatic EU regulations. But little of that is in the deal May unveiled Wednesday night. It leaves the UK within the EU’s economic orbit, subject to many of the bloc’s existing regulations and tariffs,

As search crews found another body Wednesday in a house burned by a massive Southern California wildfire, officials fear many more deaths in the destructive blazes at both ends of the state that have now claimed 66 lives.

Seven more bodies were found Thursday, officials said. There were more than 631 people missing in the Butte County fire zones on Thursday night, though officials were working to track them down.

$2.7T Pentagon completes its first-ever

About 1,200 auditors sharpened their pencils and pored over the Pentagon´s accounting books and were able to identify discrepancies that will likely take years to resolve, Reuters reported. The undertaking was massive and an early goal for the Trump administration. These auditors looked into spending on military personnel and weapons systems, the report said. Patrick Shanahan, the deputy secretary of defense, said "the fact that we did the audit is substantial," and said the agency "never expected to pass." A Pentagon spokesman clarified that an audit is not a ‘pass-fail’ process

The grim search for victims of California’s deadliest fire continued Wednesday as firefighters made progress in containing the Camp fire that burned the town of Paradise. The fire has killed at least 56 people, destroyed more than 10,300 structures and scorched 138,000 acres in Butte County. It was 35% contained as of Wednesday evening, according to California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection officials. Firefighters will continue to strengthen containment lines throughout the day and keep an eye out for hot spots in the area, Cal Fire said. Air tankers were preparing

5 Dumb GOP Mistakes

The good thing about screwing up is that you can learn from your mistakes and do better next time. That, of course, assumes you are not a Republican Party official, because the GOP Establishment seems largely incapable of learning from its mistakes. We should try again anyway. We won some races, but we lost a lot more. Losing has one advantage over winning – pain is a better teacher than joy. After all, winning generally teaches you the wrong lessons. It makes you complacent. Look at Texas. The governor did worse than expected; Ted Cruz had a close call, and down ballot

President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron have a unique and often strained relationship. They alternate between clashing with and fawning over one another, because even though they are quite different people, they seek similar goals: the greatness of their countries. The age difference and generational dynamic explain some of the ups and downs of this relationship, as do the different political cultures of the two countries. But there is more to it than that. There is the history of each country and our relationship across history; there is the current state of world affairs

President Trump has not received adequately grateful recognition for withdrawing from the Paris climate accord and effectively scuttling the Clean Power Plan. These measures, which reinforced each other and were an outright assault on American capitalism and economic growth, were, with the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and the nuclear giveaway to Iran, the core of Barack Obama’s effort to be a transformative president. The whole basis of the Clean Power Plan and the Paris climate accord was false from the beginning, yet the premise on which they were based attained a tremendous level of momentum and effectively bulldozed opposition

Judge Timothy Kelly ruled that Jim Acosta´s First Amendment press rights trump the administration´s right to have orderly press conferences.

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.
