    Horror novelist Stephen King boiled down President Donald Trump’s campaign message for the November midterms to just two words on Twitter Monday night. And they are: “Be afraid.”
  • MORE EVIDENCE OF A KAVANAUGH EFFECT

    Most of us understood, I think, that the Democrats’ attempt to bring down Brett Kavanaugh with a pathetically thin allegation of sexual misconduct as a teenager would energize the Republican base just in time for the 2018 elections. But apparently the “Kavanaugh effect” extends further than that. A new poll by NBC News/Wall Street Journal finds that likely voters in the most hotly contested House races favor Kavanaugh’s confirmation by a significant margin. To be specific, in districts rated as “toss up” or “leans” by the Cook Political Report, voters favor Kavanaugh’s confirmation 43 percent to 33 percent. How does...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi revealed during a Monday interview that she gets asked all the time why she hasn't run for president. [Snip] "I love the legislative process, I really do. No, I'm not going to run for president." "I'm trying to promote Jerry Brown to do it, but he’s not taking the bait," the Democrat from California added.

    News Intensifying Hurricane Willa Headed Directly Toward 10,000 Migrant Caravan Path Update 10/22: Hurricane Willa, as reported by the National Hurricane Center, is now a Category 5 hurricane.It appears that the migrant caravan, which has been reported to upward of 10,000 strong, might run into some extra trouble on their march to seek American asylum. A massive hurricane (named Willa) is set to cross the path that the migrants will eventually cross. There’s also a slightly smaller disturbance named Vincente to the south of Willa that meteorologists say will be consumed by the massively growing Willa, but will still...
  • Can Fearless Conservative James Woods Make An Acting Come Back?

    10/22/2018 8:53:24 AM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 45 replies
    One of the many fatalities of Hollywood’s war on conservatism is the career of James Woods, the feisty author of countless conservative tweets and a towering steeple among conservatives on Twitter. His commentary and retorts are biting, witty, and when they need to be, merciless. But of course, his open display of his political positions has cast a stigma on his career as an actor. And Woods has said as much. In a tweet from February, Woods said he was blacklisted because he refused to back Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton. Then came word from Woods that The Gersh Agency,...
  • Texas Border Patrol Chief Begs For Help as Over 12,000 Illegals Caught in Last Three Weeks (tr)

    Thousands of illegal aliens are swarming the Texas border this month in advance of the migrant caravan marching through Mexico, prompting Chief Patrol Agent Manuel Padilla, Jr., the Customs and Border Patrol Sector Chief of the Rio Grande Valley, to beg for help dealing with the onslaught of illegal aliens, gang members and drug cartel smugglers. Just on Saturday over 700 illegal aliens were caught, with over 12,000 caught in the past three weeks. In addition, safe houses have been busted and drug smugglers intercepted by the overstretched CBP in the Rio Grande Valley. 16,000 “family units” were reported caught...

    The interview of Senator McConnell by Laura Ingraham below dates back to October 5, in the immediate aftermath of the confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh tp the Supreme Court. Senator McConnell explicitly discusses the mobs opposing confirmation that Republican Senators faced at their homes prior to the vote. It is worth pausing over this interview and reflecting further on the Democrats and their supporters. This is the new Democratic normal. Quotable quote: “We’ve been under assault, Laura. They’ve come to our homes…they’ve been after all of us….Everybody decided to stand up to the mob…They’ve come to our homes…They’ve been after all...
  • The 2018 Election-Night Scorecard

    Election Day is just under three weeks away, and the contours of the political landscape are growing clearer. Democrats are poised to make major gains in the suburbs, putting them in commanding position to retake the House majority. The biggest unknown is whether Democrats will ride a huge anti-Trump tidal wave, or whether late Republican engagement can limit their losses. In the Senate, the fight over Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation nationalized the election in the red-state battlegrounds, significantly boosting the fortunes of several GOP challengers. Last month, Democrats looked like they could cut into the GOP’s razor-thin 51-49 majority...

    In which evil gets its due and there is no feel-good lesson to be learned, except one: Guns protect you. The world is not a dark and evil place,” insists an exasperated woman played by Judy Greer in Halloween. “It’s full of love and understanding!” I put the question to the class: Is she right? In the new film (not a reboot but a sequel that occurs 40 years after the events in the 1978 original and ignores all intervening Halloween movies), the woman, a mom named Karen, is forever grumbling about her Parris Island–style upbringing. Her mother is Laurie...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday there is nothing she would trade for President Donald Trump’s border wall, setting a hard negotiating stance in advance of an expected December showdown over the issue. “It happens to be like a manhood issue for the president, building a wall, and I’m not interested in that,” the California Democrat said during a discussion at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Institute of Politics.

    Commenting on how Democrats can strengthen their party by effectively targeting Trump administration policies they oppose, Senator Tim Kaine (D-Va.) said liberals must "fight in the courts, fight in the streets" and "fight at the ballot box." On Tuesday morning's Morning Joe (MSNBC), co-host Mika Brzezinski asked, "So, broad question about the future of the Democratic Party, especially given your firsthand experience with what we've all been through. There's so much going on here that we clearly see, you know, places where you -- we can criticize what the administration is doing, but how does the party rebuild? How do...

    Washington Times ^ | October 14, 2018 | Helen E. Krieble
    Astonishingly, today’s Americans expect government to care for us from cradle to grave, the way commoners once expected a benevolent king to care for his subjects. We treat people as members of groups rather than as individuals, insidiously devolving into the very class system against which the Founders rebelled. Americans are voluntarily surrendering the very freedoms that millions fought and died to establish and protect. President James Garfield once said the most common form of death in politics is suicide. After a noble 225-year history, is the American experiment dying at the hands of its own people? Many of the...

    We really, truly think that Sen. Elizabeth Warren actually thinks that a DNA test revealing she might be 1/1024th Native American is proof of her claim to Native American heritage — even though the Cherokee Nation itself is disputing that delusion and taking it as the insult it is. And we’ve already seen that a 1997 Fordham Law Review piece described Elizabeth Warren as Harvard Law School’s “first woman of color.” Wonder where they got that idea? Is that what she told them, or did she wear native garb and bring in a dish from the “Pow Wow Chow” cookbook...

    In case you haven’t been paying attention, the Republicans are going to remain in control of both the House and the Senate in a couple of weeks. Since their flawless victory over the Democrats in the fight to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, the Republican base is more energized now than at any point since November 2016. They say pictures are worth a thousand words… so, here’s one. And if you don’t think the person that is most worried about this picture is Hillary Clinton, then you haven’t been paying attention. But, to get to Hillary, I’ll...

    The recent Capitol Hill hearings of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh may have been the biggest flashpoint of the #metoo movement to date. The hearings raised the question of standards, in the #metoo era. Are women to be believed based solely on an unproven allegation? If corroboration is required, then what's good enough? And who gets to decide? Those are some of the tricky questions raised by abuse allegations made against a top Democrat official Congressman Keith Ellison by an ex-girlfriend who spoke to Sharyl this week.

    Utah Republican Senator Orrin Hatch released his own DNA test on Twitter Monday evening in response to Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren doing the same to prove she has Native American ancestry. Hatch, 84, tweeted, “DNA Test Results 1/1032 T-Rex. The rest: other dinosaurs.” The Boston Globe originally claimed on Monday that the DNA test revealed Warren was somewhere between 1/32 and 1/512 Native American, however they then corrected their story saying the numbers are actually between 1/64 and 1/1,024. Warren’s claims of Native American heritage have long been a point of contention between the Massachusetts Democrat and President Trump....

    Admit it. You knew that this was bound to happen. Teresa Sue Klein of Flatbush, Brooklyn was in a convenience store when a mother and her two children went in and went past her. Klein then got highly upset, claiming that the nine-year-old boy had sexually assaulted her by grabbing her posterior. She immediately made a scene and called 911 for the police, demanding that the little boy be arrested for sexually assaulting her. They all went outside the store, where bystanders got verbally involved, with Klein defiant. Multiple cell phone videos show the little boy and his younger sister...

Either way it's slim and none at best. The Leftwingmedia is touting this as some sort of vindication for warren and an, in your face, to President Trump. They're grasping at anything.

    Biden’s the challenger who most worries Trump, for good reason. He’s universally known, has a common touch (in every sense of the word), and might be more formidable in the Rust Belt per his Scranton pedigree than, say, Elizabeth Warren is. He’s also 75, but even that’s not much of a liability in context: The guy running a distant second behind him is 77. The first @CNN numbers for 2020 Democratic presidential nomination just released this morning:Biden 33%Sanders 13%Harris 9%Warren 8%Booker 5%Kerry 5%Bloomberg 4%O’Rourke 4%Holder 3%Garcetti 2%Avenatti 1%Gillibrand 1%Klobuchar 1%Patrick 1%Bullock <1%Delaney <1%— Ryan Struyk (@ryanstruyk) October 14, 2018...
