You don’t know Ron Estes? Most people don’t. But President Trump does. In fact, the new president has already recorded a robocall to help Estes win big in today’s special election in Kansas’ Fourth Congressional District. And so has Vice President Mike Pence. And Speaker Paul Ryan is raising money for him. And Sen. Ted Cruz campaigned for the Estes there Monday night. “Our enemy right now is complacency,” said Cruz. What’s this all about? Well, it’s really a problem of Trump’s own making. The district’s popular congressman, Mike Pompeo, isn’t in Kansas anymore, Toto. Trump snatched him

The Enemdia is going out of its way trying to create a sense of suspense over this special election, but considering recent results here, I suspect that when it turns out to be a GOP blowout, they won´t even bother to report the results tomorrow.

An article published this morning from The Hill is entitled, "Republicans scramble to hold Kansas seat." So, Republicans work from their strength by routing resources to a House race, and the democrat media manufactures a narrative that the race in doubt. I´ll bet my next paycheck the Republican wins this race by at least 15 points.

This is all intentional.

The Republican will win. But if the Republican wins by less than 20%, then the MSM will declare this a "victory" for the Demon-RATs.

I see a very strong effort from the Dems, backed by Democracy for America. Just got a call at work from one of their volunteers who had already called me earlier in the day and left a message. I asked her how she got my name and work number and she stumbled around about how my name and number just randomly came up on her screen and she was just a volunteer, etc. I don´t normally give out my work number, so was confused, and I´m not a registered Democrat or someone who supports "progressive" politics, so even more confused. But, she was a nice young woman and kept apologizing, probably expecting me to yell at her. I didn´t. Told her I had already voted and wished her candidate good luck. But, I wonder if this guy won´t give our guy a run for his money. Thompson appears to be trying to be a lefty version of Pompeo: former military, lawyer, family man, all around good guy and patriot. Pushing the right buttons: jobs, education, veterans. He´s fighting for our "rural way of life", whatever that is. We´ll see what happens, but we have enough people angry with Brownback that we might be surprised.

I predict he will win in a close election. Despite the fact that dems are finding votes right now in storage sheds, Remember Gorsuch was confirmed as SCOTUS with more no votes than any other justice in history.

What’s missing in Congress right now?
Just leadership and courage

Congress returns from another half-month vacation this week to confront a national job approval rating wallowing in the low double-digits. Hard to understand why it’s that high. Both the Republican and Democratic parties have slipped into their own brand of do-nothing dysfunction. With the dearth – or death – of political moderates on Capitol Hill, each political party has strutted into its own distant ideological corner to utter daily talking points to rally its fervent faithful to no end whatsoever, fundraising aside.

We should probably have expected, with the publication this week of a tell-all book called “Shattered,” that the decaying remnants of Hillary Clinton’s defunct campaign would launch a witch hunt (no pun intended). They’re seeking to hunt down the identities of the high-ranking campaign staff that fed all these revealing, juicy anecdotes and details to a pair of journalists. [Snip] The stricken campaign was afflicted with disorganization, over-confidence, enmity and Bill Clinton. The campaign had no central message and, worse, it featured an unpleasant but clueless Hillary Clinton, who confided to a close friend, “I don’t understand what’s happening in

There seem to be a fair number of people these days loudly complaining that the unpredictable presidential candidate named Donald J. Trump has become the unpredictable president named Donald J. Trump. Imagine that. Less than three months into their standard-bearer’s presidency, Trump supporters openly fret that the man who made billions selling customers and investors everything from condos to casinos, from steaks to university degrees, is changing course on them. Just like a real pol. Of course, the 70-year-old real estate baron isn’t a real pol. Most pols have some kind of ideological tethering

I would have thought maybe music. But at this time of Passover and Easter, Gallup just did a new poll and found that the most appealing part of attending church for a large majority of Americans is something else entirely. It makes sense when you think about it. But music, in fact, is way down the list. The overwhelmingly most important reason that people attend church is for the sermon and related talks to learn more about the scriptures and how religion connects to their own life. There are interesting twists buried in the survey that could help churches and

An extremely large percentage of America’s 326.5 million citizens did not run for president last year. Only one of us non-candidates, however, decided to write a new book to explain why. If you’re one of the many Americans who hadn’t thought to wonder why Elizabeth Warren did not run for president — or don’t really care — join the crowd. Warren´s new book about her non-candidacy comes out next week and would-be buyers are not yet lining up. The book is heavily biographical, which means Warren is definitely running for the presidential nomination of what’s left of the Democrat Party

According to an Instagram account bearing her name, the British-born wife of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad is enduring that country’s bloody civil war in good health, safety and nice clothes. Asma al-Assad is shown there in legions of touching photos chatting with women, reading to children, watching her husband sign documents and comforting families reportedly freed recently from rebel-held territory. Each entry carries the hashtag #WeLoveYouAsma.

London’s tabloid Daily Mail has admitted in court and a written settlement that its 2016 story implying Melania Trump previously worked for an escort service was totally false. The innuendo will cost the publication almost $3 million in damages and fees, which might be considered a bargain given that the now-First Lady had sought $150 million from the publication and its website in lawsuits filed in the United States and in Britain. “We accept that these allegations about Mrs. Trump are not true,” said the newspaper in a joint statement, “and we retract and withdraw ....

As public speakers go, Obama aide Valerie Jarrett comes pretty cheap. She lined up a commencement gig next month at Chicago’s Northeastern Illinois University for 30-grand. By all estimates, she’s a multi-millionaire anyway, although the Iranian-born American has spent most of her career in government. And the Obama adviser has few expenses, no apartment rent, for instance. This winter she joined Barack and Michelle together living in that $5 million mansion they’re renting in Washington.

Swearing has likely been a social phenomenon since an early caveman caught his thumb between a rock and a hard place. Yes, it was long considered uncouth and a certain sign of a weak vocabulary. But as society has coarsened in recent times, so has the language, even in public. The ubiquity of cell cameras and these d****** recording devices has captured the foul moments for all to hear. You may recall back in 2010 at an historic bill-signing the Vice President of the United States, Joseph R. Biden, on national TV muttering into the president’s ear and a live

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., argued Thursday that President Trump and Republicans in Congress will have "doo-doo stuck to their shoe for a long time" if they pass the revised American Health Care Act (AHCA). The comments came a day after the AHCA received a boost in support from the House Freedom Caucus, which announced it would back the bill. "I think President Trump is really making fools of the members of Congress, of his own party," she said in her weekly press conference.

Although President Donald J. Trump promised to defund Planned Parenthood if elected president, and the GOP House and Senate often claim that they want to defund the group, there reportedly is no language in the continuing resolution to fund the government through next September to defund Planned Parenthood, a group that has performed approximately 81,567 abortions since Trump´s inauguration on Jan. 20. That´s about 877 abortions per day, 36 per hour, or 1 every two minutes. The continuing resolution, or CR, is a funding mechanism that -- absent a budget and the regular appropriations process -- wraps federal spending into

The United Nations warned the Trump administration earlier this year that repealing ObamaCare without providing an adequate replacement would be a violation of multiple international laws, according to a new report. Though the Trump administration is likely to ignore the U.N. warning, The Washington Post reported the Office of the U.N. High Commission on Human Rights in Geneva sent an "urgent appeal" on Feb 2. The Post reported that the confidential, five-page memo cautioned that the repeal of the Affordable Care Act would put the U.S. “at odds with its international obligations.” The warning was sent to the State Department and reportedly said

My faith is a source of strength and comfort to me, as religious beliefs are to hundreds of millions of people around the world. So my decision to sever my ties with the Southern Baptist Convention, after six decades, was painful and difficult.
