´Resist Trump´ Is An Expensive Flop In Georgia —
Will Dems Drop Another $8 Million On Ossoff?

Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff

Politics: The special election held in Georgia on Tuesday was supposed to a blockbuster event showcasing the anti-Trump wave sweeping the nation. Instead, it was an overhyped dud. So sure that Georgians shared their loathing of Donald Trump, Democrats from around the country poured more than $8 million — almost none of which came from people in Georgia´s 6th District — into the campaign of 30-year-old political novice Jon Ossoff. Celebrities endorsed him. The media showered him with free publicity. And he was running against 11 Republican candidates. But even with all that support, Ossoff wasn´t able to win a majority of

You´re missing a big part of the picture. $8million, mostly out of state money, was spent on ads (TV an print media), printing signs and tee shirts, patronizing restaurants and hotels. A Congressional district that´s economically savvy should be staging high visibility political campaigns to wrench some the Leftist 1% money into their district.

$1 million was said to have been raised by the DailyKos.

I read elsewhere - before this election - that if he didn’t win it outright, there would be less enthu$ia$m for the runoff. They knew that when all those surplus Republicans flushed out, leaving only one, he’d have a much rougher go. Money was not expected to flow in his direction for a runoff.

Has anyone else noticed the dead fish eyes on all these younger Democrats? This guy, Ossoff, there is no light or life in those eyes- ever. Many older Dems have the same quality, but it´s almost universal in the younger crowd.

A reporter asked if he could vote in the district he was running for because he didn´t live there.

He went on about being born there and that his girlfriend was going to school somewhere else.

No answer. I´m surprised he did better than 30%

What I haven´t seen expressed is the fact that while the Democrat Party poured $´s into Ossoff´s campaign, the Republican party was prohibited by party rules from backing a single Republican Candidate in a primary election. Won´t be any such restriction in the run=off. BTW Handel only spent $75,000.

Ossoff spent 17+ times the loot as Handel. How much will this demN loser scarf up for the general election in June? He should know the balloon has popped!

Handel ran against a mob of contestants and still garners up almost 40% of the conservative vote. She needs to get a good swing of the conservative votes and she will crush Ossoff.

During the campaign I was thinking the pubbies should have run a dark horse against Ossoff in the demN campaign and he´d have been lucky to get 40%. Running with no competition and he couldn´t win against eleven or so plying for the front of the conservative ticket. What an accomplishment or "win" as he wants to call it. The GOP better put some money and support in the caldron in June. Handel deserves the help.

For a century now, American law has recognized the freedom of the parties to a contract to agree to submit disputes to arbitration. Arbitration allows experts chosen by the parties to consider and rule on the issues, much more quickly and at much lower costs. The American Arbitration Association was established nearly a century ago in 1926 to provide such arbitration services, under well-established rules of due process. Today, more disputes are settled through such private dispute resolution services than through all the federal and state courts combined. But progressives are certain they know better.

Scandal: When federal officials arrested Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz´s IT aide, Imran Awan, as he tried to flee for his native Pakistan, it was the latest twist to an already twisted scandal involving several House IT workers who possibly stole highly sensitive information from several Democrats. Stranger still has been the Democrats´ nonresponse to this unfolding scandal. Back in February, the Capitol Hill police opened a criminal investigation into Awan and four other House employees who provided IT services for several Democrats, including those serving on the House intelligence, foreign affairs and homeland security committees. Investigators were looking into whether

Taxes: Many of the ideas that emerge from Washington are stale, unimaginative and unworkable. Not so the latest pitch from a group of conservative congressional Republicans: Eliminate the IRS. This goes beyond some kind of political revenge fantasy. It´s time to consider the damage that the IRS does both to Americans´ freedoms as individuals and to the costs it imposes on the economy as a whole, argue the 151 members of the Republican Study Group, an in-house conservative think tank, in their newest budget proposal.

Health Reform: For months, ObamaCare defenders have dominated the debate by trotting out people who would supposedly be harmed by the GOP replacement plan. President Trump turned the tables on Monday by highlighting the very real pain ObamaCare is causing millions of middle class families. During his remarks, which came on the eve of a make-or-break Senate vote, in which he challenged the Senate to live up to seven years´ worth of promises to repeal and replace ObamaCare, Trump spent much of his time showcasing victims of ObamaCare. "Democrats promised Melissa Acerson that her son´s pre-existing conditions would be covered," Trump said.

If there´s anyone left in America who still thinks the national newspapers aren´t partisan, they must have missed the front page of USA Today on July 24. The banner headline across the top read, "USA Split on Trump Impeachment." It took a poll attempting to figure out very publicly whether the voters want Trump impeached yet. Reporters Susan Page and Emma Kinery proclaimed a dark omen in the results, which is why the newspaper asked the poll question. They said, "Just six months after his inauguration, Americans already are split down the middle, 42%-42%, over whether President Trump should be removed

Firing Mueller: If recent reports are true, Special Counsel Robert Mueller has veered sharply off course to investigate matters that have nothing to do with Russia´s tampering with our 2016 election. He either has to be reeled in to do the job he was hired to do, or fired. This isn´t supposed to happen under American law, where a person can be given the task of an open investigation on someone with the end-goal of finding something, anything, that he or she has ever done that is illegal. That´s the kind of thing that was routinely done in places like the

conomy: On Sunday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer promised that Democrats would reveal a "sharp, bold" new economic agenda that would appeal to working Americans. What he delivered on Monday was warmed over cliches and tried-and-failed policies. If this is the best Democrats can offer, they truly are out of ideas. "This is the start of a new vision for the party," Schumer wrote in a New York Times Op-Ed Monday outlining his "Better Deal" economic plan. There was nothing new about it whatsoever. Even the name is unoriginal. For the past 80 years, Democrats have been putting different adjectives in front

Corruption: Amid the trivial fault-finding by the media of President Trump´s every move, it´s important to note that the very same pundits who now rip Trump have completely ignored the growing scandal of Hillary Clinton´s pay-for-play tenure as secretary of state. It´s reasonable to wonder why no charges have yet been filed, yet the media, blinded by their Trump hatred, seem strangely incurious. The legal investigative think tank Judicial Watch recently released 448 pages of documents that it dug up from the U.S. State Department, the fruit of months of Freedom of Information Act requests and document-digging. The documents are damning,

Good Government: This week, the White House announced that the Trump administration had put the brakes on new regulations. A report found that Congress has been the least productive in more than 100 years. And the jobs and incomes picture took a turn for the better. Could these somehow be related? Much as they don´t like taxes and red tape, businesses hate uncertainty more. It makes planning hard and inhibits risk-taking. The problem is that an activist government produces lots of additional uncertainty.

Nuclear Threat: President Trump has imposed a new bunch of economic sanctions on Iran for its misbehavior, including continuing its military nuclear program and its ongoing acts to destabilize and dominate the Mideast. Good move. We hope it´s a first step toward withdrawing from a bad nuclear deal and undoing the damage that President Obama did by lifting sanctions on Tehran. According to the U.S. Treasury Department, 16 entities and individuals have been sanctioned for aiding "illicit Iranian actors or transnational criminal activity."

Once the GOP gets tired of the circular firing squad over its failure to pass an ObamaCare repeal-and-replace bill, it might want to take a look at how Hillary Clinton handled a similarly embarrassing health care disaster during her husband´s presidency. Despite the fact that Democrats controlled both houses of Congress and the White House in 1993, Clinton couldn´t even get her "Health Security Act" to the floor of the Senate. The main reason for her failure — aside from her political ineptitude — was a series of "Harry and Louise" ads put out by the insurance industry. In one of them,

Budget: The House Budget Committee´s new budget proposal makes a game and laudable attempt at bending down the spending curve and moving the U.S. toward a fairer, simpler tax system. But it already has rival plans within the GOP itself. The 10-year budget, which sketches out spending and taxing priorities from 2018 to 2027, makes a game effort at reducing spending, shrinking the welfare state, cutting regulation and restoring sanity to our tax code. It´s already being savaged by the media for its "draconian" cuts, which is a good sign. "The status quo is unsustainable," said GOP Rep. Diane Black, chair of

When President Trump made his initial remarks reflecting disappointment in Attorney General Jeff Sessions it was initially unnerving. The subsequent fallout from the public criticism has united the NeverTrump crowd, Cruzbots and professionally GOPe, to defend the honor of the much beloved former Senator. The opportunity to bash Trump is simply an ancillary benefit. Conversely, the MAGA community has largely portrayed the rift as if the Presidential critique was part of a larger strategy between the President and Attorney General. If we wait long enough some mysterious master plan will eventually to be discovered. However, the subsequent POTUS tweets and comments do

The new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, would fix the White House’s “messaging problem.” Within 24 hours of Scaramucci’s appointment, the president returned to Twitter and unloaded another torrent of political bombshells, including talking about his power to pardon, even as his attorneys were denying that Donald Trump was thinking about pardoning anyone.

President Donald Trump’s Wednesday announcement on Twitter that transgender men and women will not be allowed to serve in the military “in any capacity” was not a complete surprise: Last month, Defense Secretary James Mattis announced that the military was hitting the pause button on an Obama-era plan to welcome openly transgender people into the military. But the announcement was a legal land mine. The Trump administration may soon learn that singling out a class of people for exclusion violates the constitutional guarantee of equal protection under the law.

President Donald Trump has been attacking his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, daily. There have been brutal attacks on Twitter, in media interviews, and during speeches. Conventional wisdom is that Trump is getting ready to fire Sessions or hoping Sessions resigns. Conventional wisdom also assured everyone that Hillary Clinton would win in a landslide, the only question being by how large a margin. Trump´s complaint is that his attorney general should not have recused himself from the Russia hacking hoax and that he is dragging his feet on long overdue investigations and prosecutions: Deep State leaks; unmasking; DNC and Clinton collusion

President Donald Trump’s dramatic decision to exclude so-called “transgender” people from the military is a direct rejection of the progressives’ revolutionary demand that Americans’ society should be remade to eliminate all civic recognition of the two different-and-complementary male and female sexes. (Tweets) The Wednesday decision was greeted with anger from the left, which had hoped that the military’s 2016 endorsement of the transgender ideology would push the Supreme Court and legislators nationwide to impose and establish the unpopular claim that a person’s changeable choice of “gender” is more legally important than their biological sex. If endorsed by the courts, that

Senator John McCain fired away at Donald Trump´s decision to ban transgender people from military service – and also for announcing a 180 degree turn on a complex issue via Twitter. The Senate Armed Services Committee chairman said in a statement that the military should welcome capable people ´regardless of their gender identity.´ He made the statement hours after his own dramatic return to the Senate for an Obamacare repeal vote, after getting a brain cancer diagnosis. Trump praised the former Vietnam POW for his action, although he went after McCain´s time as a POW during the campaign.

Three-in-four white Democrats and left-leaning Americans find it “frustrating” and “stressful” to talk politics with people who have a different opinion of President Trump, according to a Pew Research poll released Thursday. While more than half of Americans find it stressful talking to people they disagree with on Trump, white Democrats were the most likely to find it uncomfortable -- much more than Republicans of any race. The findings are from a June 27-July 9 survey, which polled a representative sample of more than 2,500 Americans on political behaviors following Trump’s election. Among all racial groups, white Democrats were also most likely
