    CTH has received multiple requests for a review of predictable consequences as a result of the midterm election. Thankfully, and perhaps unfortunately, we have solid references to base these predictions on – because there’s a solid frame of reference from the 2006 midterm and the subsequent consequences we saw in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010. If we take the empirical 2006 example as the starting point and overlay the 2018 landscape to modernize the predictive model, what results is a most likely scenario. First, any intellectually honest review must overlay the current political environment. In 2018 the scale of unchecked lawless...

    As I tossed a bunch more political mass mailed flyers into trash today i wondered maybe I should have marked them return to sender and have the pacs and liberal/leftist groups sending them pay return postage? Some thing maybe useful for next elections because I'm being innudated with their large cardstock mailings in my state and I'd guess others of you are as well? As a registered undeclared/Independent voter I used to get mailings looking for donations and I would seal and return the postage paid envelopes empty so they had to pay return postage.

    As calls mount from both the left and the right for Democratic state Rep. Jovan Melton to step down from his House District 41 seat in Aurora, supporters, including former Denver Mayor Wellington Webb, argued Thursday that a double standard is being applied to Melton by the leadership of the Democratic-controlled Colorado House and the Colorado Democratic Party chair, Morgan Carroll. ... Webb ... called out the leadership of the Democratic Party ... “Jim Crow system of justice” and a “political lynching” of Melton.

By Leslie Marshall The nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh seemed all but certain a few days ago, until a woman named Christine Blasey Ford came forward accusing him of sexual assault when they were in high school.

    GENEVA (7 September 2018) – UN human rights experts* have appealed to Iran to halt the imminent executions of Iranian Kurd prisoners Zanyar and Loghman Moradi, amid serious concerns that they did not receive a fair trial and were tortured during pre-trial detention. They also reiterated calls to halt the execution of Mr. Ramin Hossein Panahi. “We urge the Government of Iran to immediately halt their executions and to annul the death sentences against them in compliance with its international obligations,” the experts said in a joint statement, following reports that they will be executed on 8 September.“We are alarmed...

The two, Margaret and Liza, were taken out by their mother, Ashley, as the hearing got “hot,” said one insider. “It was very unpleasant for young children,” said the insider.

    Buzz Aldrin appeared to criticize Neil Armstrong biopic First Man for leaving out the planting of the American flag on the Moon. The 88-year-old, who was the second man to set foot on the Moon, on Sunday tweeted a picture of the flag planted after their landing in 1969. He captioned the photo: 'Proud to be an American.' Aldrin also re-tweeted a photo of him saluting next to the same picture. It is an apparent dig at Oscar-winning director Damian Chazelle's decision not to include the planting of the flag on the Moon at the end of his critically acclaimed...

    Zanyar Moradi and Ramin Hossein Panahi, two Kurdish political prisoners sentenced to death by the Iranian government, have published an open letter to the public regarding the implementation of the “death penalty” from the history of Constitutionalism to today and stated that various governments regard such penalty as “the most fearsome tool for the elimination of dissents.”In their letter, these two political prisoners who are at risk of immediate execution called on Iranian political and civil activists to investigate the unfounded allegations and anti-humane sentences against Kurdish political prisoners in order to prevent the government from pursuing its current...

    The Supreme Court on Thursday rejected a Minnesota law banning voters from wearing political apparel to the polls, saying it was too draconian in stifling Americans’ First Amendment rights. The 7-2 decision said it may be possible for states to restrict stridently political T-shirts and buttons, but the justices said Minnesota didn’t justify why its law needed to be so broad.

    Fox News ^ | April 18, 2018, 3 hours ago | Maxim Lott
    Californians likely will vote in November on a long-shot referendum to split their giant state into three – a measure that, while standing little chance of success, would represent a political gift to Democrats. Such a California breakup would upset the political balance in the Senate if it actually happened, and hurt the GOP. According to a Fox News analysis of county-level voting data, splitting California as outlined would create two solid blue states and one leaning blue state. That could very well mean four extra Senate seats for Democrats – plus four more electoral votes in presidential elections. So...

    Soros’ Washington-DC based super PAC gave St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner almost $200,000 to make sure she carried his water once elected. And she has: She’s softened enforcement of crimes and, worse, has used the powers of her office to recklessly pursue an investigation against the Governor. That investigation culminated in an indictment this past week—which means that Missouri taxpayers are, yet again, on the hook for spending taxpayer money for frivolous cases, thanks to George Soros.

    IWB ^ | Daniel Carter
    I’ve recently stumbled upon a reimagined political compass that does a fantastic job of illustrating today’s political environment. It is less focused on the perceived divide between the left and the right and more focused on the true divide between the status quo and people desperately seeking change. It was created by Eric Weinstein; a mathematician, economist, public intellectual and Managing Director at Thiel Capital. His new and improved political compass ditches the mainstream narrative and does a better job of showing you who your true political allies and enemies are. First, let’s look at the old political compass as...

    January 20, 2017 Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. Shocking the world, the former reality TV star and real estate developer defeated both a vast field of Republican candidates and the Clinton machine. Liberals have been melting down all year while the non-status quo president attempts to upend DC and make America great again by focusing on growing the economy as opposed to opening our borders, entering into ill-fated trade deals, and destructive climate pacts that merely aim to signal how enlightened we are as a nation.

    The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, which oversees the Internal Revenue Service, reports that in fiscal 2016 the IRS closed four cases in which IRS employees were found to have violated a law governing their behavior toward taxpayers and that these violations included “harassing and abusing taxpayers and using obscene and profane language.” In 1998, Congress enacted a law imposing restrictions on the way that IRS employees could treat taxpayers. As explained by the IG, this included a prohibition on an IRS employee contacting a taxpayer at “unusual or inconvenient times,” contacting the taxpayer directly if the taxpayer “has...
