  • Trump tells AP he won’t accept blame if GOP loses House

    AP ^ | 17 Oct 18 | CATHERINE LUCEY, JONATHAN LEMIRE and ZEKE MILLER
    Facing the prospect of bruising electoral defeat in congressional elections, President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he won’t accept the blame if his party loses control of the House in November, arguing his campaigning and endorsements have helped Republican candidates. In a wide-ranging interview three weeks before Election Day, Trump told The Associated Press he senses voter enthusiasm rivaling 2016 and he expressed cautious optimism that his most loyal supporters will vote even when he is not on the ballot. He dismissed suggestions that he might take responsibility, as his predecessor did, for midterm losses or view the outcome as...
  • 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...
  • Dems increasingly whisper about the ‘impeachment’ of Trump if they regain the House

    Big Plans: Democrats are increasingly confident of two things — one, that the party will regain control of the House after the November midterms; and two, they will immediately begin impeachment proceedings against POTUS Donald Trump. Never mind that recent polling suggests that would be political suicide.

    With the election less than 24 days away, Republicans are seeing momentum in polls after the Kavanaugh hearings and a new path to holding their majority in the House. To do this, they need to stop Democrats from reaching a net pickup of 23 seats, which will likely require raising more last-minute money. Currently, many election watchers believe Democrats will gain anywhere from 20 to 40 seats. However, if their loss of momentum persists, the lower end of that range becomes more likely and Republicans would maintain a slender majority.
  • Pollster Zogby: Dem House win ‘far from certain, elusive,' Senate 'nearly impossible'

    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.

    Donna Shalala may be in trouble. Shalala, a Democrat running in a district that President Donald Trump lost by nearly 20 percentage points in 2016, is trailing Republican TV journalist Maria Elvira Salazar by 2 percentage points in a Mason Dixon-Telemundo 51 poll. The independent poll’s margin of error was 4 percentage points and included a pro-Trump non-party candidate who could siphon votes from Salazar. ... Shalala’s campaign noted that Trump’s approval ratings in the district in the poll are much higher than expected ... “It’s difficult for our campaign to accept that this is the only congressional district...
  • Nancy Pelosi: Trump’s Tax Returns a Top Priority If Democrats Win House

    brietbart ^ | 10/11/2018 | Joel B Pollak
    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told the San Francisco Chronicle editorial board on Wednesday that Democrats would make exposing President Donald Trump’s tax returns a top priority if they win a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives in November and she is elected Speaker of the House. Democrats have been obsessed with Trump’s tax returns since the 2016 election, convinced that they will turn up information that would damage or disqualify him, though the information has always been available to the Internal Revenue Service. Last year, MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow was mocked for hyping a Trump tax return...

    “So when you’re dealing with an ideological party that is driven by the lust for power, that is funded by corporate interests who want a government that does its bidding…” At first I thought this was just the standard Democratic tactic of accusing their enemies of their own sins, as I can think of no party that lusts after power more than the Dems do, or is supported by more corporations (e.g. Google, Facebook) dedicated to getting the government to do their bidding. But when I watched it again: “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to...

    Election day evening, 11/06/2018 will not be one of joy and cheering for the failed Democrat Party. In fact, that evening in November will make Election Day, 2016 look like a Sunday School Picnic. A few facts to ponder as the oncoming political slaughter of the entire Democrat Party ramps up to speed. The Democrat Party has no functioning, effective, leader..none, not Obama, not Clinton, not Biden, not Schumer, not Pelosi, not Booker, not Warren, not Sanders, not Harris, not Waters, not nobody!!! None of them, all of them, cannot hold a candle or even come close to the effectivity,...

    Rescinding the historic Trump tax cuts will merely be the beginning of the scorched-earth destruction that the Democrats will engage in should they become the majority party in the House and Senate in January. Here are the 10 things that Democrats will take away from the American people if they win in November: Your money. When House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said that bonuses stimulated by President Trump’s tax cut were “crumbs” she meant it. And item No. 1 on the Democrats’ agenda will be to repeal the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. For the 90 percent of Americans...

    Republican Senators Lee, Graham and Hatch were doxxed on Wikipedia on Thursday. There is nothing too low for the left. Many Republicans on the Senate Judiciary had their home addresses and phone numbers published on their Wikipedia pages Thursday. Shortly after Lindsey Graham went off on Senate Democrats for destroying Kavanaugh’s life in order to derail his confirmation, Republicans were doxxed. The victims included Republican Senators Mike Lee, Orrin Hatch of Utah and Lindsey Graham, reported the Washington Times. According to Caleb Hull, editor of the Independent Journal Review, the wife of Mr. Hatch “has been receiving calls nonstop ON...

    Minnesota Democratic Congressman Keith Ellison has submitted a request for a House Ethics Committee investigation into domestic abuse allegations raised against him by an ex-girlfriend. "Today I am announcing that I will submit a request for a House Ethics Committee investigation into allegations against me raised by a former partner. I am taking this step now because I am innocent and eager to see this entire matter resolved," Ellison wrote in a statement to 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS. The Democratic-Farmer-Labor party has hired a private lawyer, Susan E. Ellingstad, to conduct their own investigation into the allegation. When reached for comment...

    **SNIP** In March 2016, the House Inspector General’s Office revealed that Awan bought almost $38,000 in equipment, paid for in installments below $500, apparently to avoid having the equipment logged in the House of Representatives’ inventory. Many of the items were delivered directly to his home. (This itself is not an unusual practice because deliveries to the Capitol building require extra security screenings.) This behavior led the House Sergeant-at-Arms to tell Representatives five months later that they believed this was a case of possible procurement fraud. By October, the Inspector General’s Office had discovered Awan and his family logged into...

    An ongoing feud over who will lead House Democrats next year is poised to enter a new round as early as next week, as members eager to oust House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-California, are floating a new way to do so. The latest attempt — which senior leadership aides anticipate will be futile — once again exposes that a handful of House Democrats remain concerned about whether Pelosi is dragging down candidates locked in competitive races that the party needs to win in order to gain control of the House. This group of anti-Pelosi Democrats is seeking to change...

    Clinton says Trump supporters don't "fully appreciate what is potential under this presidency." Hillary Clinton predicted Tuesday that President Donald Trump will "wholesale fire people" in the White House and become increasingly unaccountable, if Democrats don't check his power by winning a majority of seats in the House or Senate in the November midterm elections. Clinton made the remarks during the former secretary of state's appearance on MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show." "What I worry about, Rachel, is that after this election this president is going to wholesale fire people," Clinton said. " ... And if we [Democrats] don’t have...

    President Trump and congressional leaders have agreed to a border wall funding showdown after the upcoming November midterm elections and if he plays his cards right, it could result in $5 billion, more than twice what the White House initially sought. While appropriations bills are moving at the fastest pace in over 20 years, with many expected to be approved by Oct. 1, the start of the fiscal year, Homeland Security funding for the wall is likely to be delayed, said officials. Plans are already underway to approve temporary, “stopgap,” funding that will cover Homeland until its new spending is...

    All, As you know the battle for the House is tight. I've been trying to keep on top of the races for several publications, including BigLeaguePolitics, but tracking even 40 of the closest races is tough. If you are in TX and are in Sessions or Dent's district; in PA; in CA in esp. CD 39, 48, 49 or other real battles; in NC, and have info on the House races there, particularly those that are close, please get in touch with me. Just heard Culberson (TX7) in fight, but optimistic. Last poll had him up 4, and "Matress Mack,"...

The Republican strategy document claims Democrats will launch investigations 'spanning every committee,' adding that they are preparing for the worst.

Axios has obtained a spreadsheet that’s circulated through Republican circles on and off Capitol Hill — including at least one leadership office — that meticulously previews the investigations Democrats will likely launch if they flip the House,” Swan writes. Swan then lists some of the more than 100 items contained in the lengthy GOP document. Here is a direct quote of the bullet point list from Swan’s...
