  • Rep. Jim Jordan’s Vision If Republicans Maintain the Majority And He’s The Next Speaker of the House

    Townhall ^ | Posted: Oct 14, 2018 1:31 PM | Alex Nitzberg
    Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) believes the Republicans will maintain their majority in the House through the November midterm elections—achieving that victory is “priority number one” he said during an interview with Townhall. If that mission is accomplished, Rep. Jordan hopes to succeed outgoing Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) as the next Speaker of the House—and if he’s successful in his bid for the Speakership, his objective is to follow through on that which voters were promised, he explained, to “do what we said.” This entails exercising the “political will” to fight for the issues that American citizens elected them to fight...

    Nearly one in 10 vote-by-mail ballots have been rejected by Gwinnett County election officials, alarming voting rights groups. Gwinnett is throwing out far more absentee ballots than any other county in Georgia, according to records from the Secretary of State’s Office. Ballots were discarded because of allegedly mismatched signatures, incomplete forms or missing residential addresses....
  • Quora query, Why do you and your religious principles support and defend President Trump?

    Been working on a response for a Quora query, You are a devout Bible-fundamental Jesus believer. Or devout Catholic or Mormon. Why do you and your religious principles support and defend President Trump? Otherwise, why wouldn't you? I only worked on what the alternative to Trump would mean so far. Any suggestions for this? "Devout Bible-fundamental Jesus believer" best fits evangelicals, and even considering the alternative from that overall perspective should suffice for now, as illustrated by this (imperfect) analogy: You are at a port along with many other people, trying to continue on a long journey to get to...
  • Hillary Clinton Viewed as ‘Kiss of Death’ for Democratic Candidates

    Several Democrats are saying former 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is viewed as the “kiss of death” among Democratic candidates running in the 2018 midterm elections. The Democrats, who spoke on condition of anonymity, voiced concerns that Clinton’s presence would threaten the party’s chances at retaking the House and Senate in 2018, forcing Clinton to keep campaigning to a minimum and only appearing at low-key fundraisers. “Hillary Clinton is the kiss of death and she represents the part of the Democratic Party that led to historic losses and that elected Donald Trump president,” one leading Democratic strategist told the...

    Election By-Product I favor an election outcome that adds support to President Trump’s administration but there is another aspect of the election that causes me pause. We will learn whether the nation favors a government that can give them more or a government that honors the Constitution. I offer these two choices because the government cannot honor the Constitution and give people stuff from the treasury.

Barack Obama had vice president Joe Biden, ‘officially’ known to deplorables as ‘Bite Me’ or just plain ‘Uncle Joe’. Good thing that someone in the Obama administration had an official name.
  • Texas abortionist said to have ‘twisted’ living babies’ heads off their necks

    The crimes of abortionist and serial killer Kermit Gosnell are, by now, well known. But another abortionist is currently under investigation by the FBI: Douglas Karpen, who has come to be known as the “Texas Gosnell.” In 2011, Karpen appeared before the Texas Medical Board following multiple complaints, but they were all dismissed. In 2013, however, the voices against him grew louder as staffers from his abortion facility began to come forward, accusing him of committing grisly late-term abortions, after which babies were sometimes born alive. Instead of getting them medical attention, as federal law requires, Karpen would instead —...

    WASHINGTON — It was this week two years ago that Hillary Clinton’s victory looked assured, when the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape of Donald Trump bragging about sexual assault appeared all but certain to end his campaign. Jesse Ferguson remembers it well. The deputy press secretary for Clinton’s campaign also remembers what happened a month later. It’s why this veteran Democratic operative can’t shake the feeling that, as promising as the next election looks for his party, it might still all turn out wrong. “Election Day will either prove to me I have PTSD or show I’ve been living deja vu,”...

    **SNIP** Crowley has formed a state campaign committee “Joe for NY,” and is holding a fundraiser Oct. 29 at the Fitzpatrick Grand Central Hotel in Manhattan, where the maximum suggested donation is $10,000. According to an email sent to “Irish Americans & Friends Crowley” by Walter Swett of the firm Dynamic SRG, who is the Crowley committee’s campaign treasurer, the group was “established to position Joe for future opportunities in public service.” **SNIP** The IrishCentral website recently floated Crowley’s name for statewide office, noting that, “While white ethnic Catholic no longer plays that well in Queens, it is a powerful...

I have chosen it, because it conveys precisely the meaning I intend. Black Americans are expected to show up on election day, vote for Democratic candidates, then basically go home, shut up, sit down and stay out of the way.

    This week’s White House Report Card finds President Trump still riding high after the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court and buoyed by reports that Democrats have not locked down control of the House. Democratic pollster John Zogby, who gave the president a B+ in this week’s report card, said that it is “nearly impossible” for the Democrats to win the Senate. And worse, he said that winning the House remains “elusive” despite predictions that a “blue wave” will give the Democrats a nice majority cushion.

    While Hollywood constantly preaches diversity, some of the entertainment industry’s most powerful and influential executives have given almost exclusively to Democrat candidates and left-wing PACs. According to The Hollywood Reporter, nearly 100 percent of the millions donated from the top executives in Hollywood went to Democrats or PACs working to elect Democrats. Of the more than $4 million in federal donations made by the top Hollywood executives and entertainers, 99.7 percent went to Democrats and Democratic-leaning political action committees or organizations, according to a Hollywood Reporter data review of Federal Election Commission records. Only three members of this year’s THR...

    I have a confession to make. I wasn’t sure Hillary Clinton would beat Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. Sure, I supported Clinton, wanted her to be our president and cried for about three days in the fetal position when she lost – but I wasn’t entirely shocked that Trump won. For years I have seen my own Democratic Party support very intelligent candidates who seem a bit too highbrow for mainstream America. John Kerry was a very eloquent, intelligent and polished speaker who I felt wiped the floor with George W. Bush in all three of their presidential...

    Someone really likes reporter John Solomon of The Hill. While many in the media are chasing stories based on false narratives, trying to nail down a smoking gun for the supposed Trump—Russia election collusion they so desperately believe in, Solomon is over there in a corner breaking news that contains actual evidence. When somebody high up in either the White House or the Department of Justice (DOJ) is ready to bring out more evidence exposing the #SpyGate plot, Solomon is the reporter who is being brought in and shown the evidence so he can break the news. The only problem...

    Liberal protesters – egged on by Democratic politicians – are openly embracing a more confrontational and aggressive approach, banging on the doors of the Supreme Court, confronting lawmakers outside their offices and chasing GOP officials out of restaurants. And Republicans are quickly seizing on that spectacle to hammer a new midterm message, decrying the “mob” behavior and warning that Democrats would bring that mentality into the majority should they prevail in November's election.

    People who are in the know, have probably seen the following video and heard failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s introduction of George Soros at the “Take Back America Conference” in June 2004. However, for those who have not, this might be an eye opener as not only does Clinton introduce Soros, but claims that we need men like him who are “fearless” and willing to “step up” when it counts. She is obviously indicating that he should get involved in the American political process, which he has done with billions of dollars.Here’s a brief documentary on Soros. Clinton’s comments begin...

    TALLAHASSEE When Floridians head to the ballot box in November, they will encounter a list of candidates asking for their vote for seats in the state House to the U.S. Senate. Among the choices they must make will also be one of the longest lists of proposed constitutional changes in decades, from betting on dog racing to implementing a ban on public officials lobbying for six years after they leave office. The 12 constitutional amendments on this year’s ballot are the most since 1998, when the state’s Constitution Revision Commission — which meets once every 20 years — put nine...
