    The new NBC News-Wall Street Journal survey, taken six weeks before Americans head to the polls, shows Democrats leading Republicans by 52 percent to 40 percent for control of Congress. If it holds, that 12 percentage point margin would suggest a "blue wave" large enough to switch control of not just the House but also the Senate.

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley appears to have ended the halting talks with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford about testifying next week about her allegations of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh. After setting a sudden 10:00 PM deadline for agreement with his terms and rejecting further talks with Ford or her lawyers, Grassley has reportedly scheduled a Committee vote on the confirmation for Monday.

    Fox News was told that the Republican senators want an answer “by the end of the day.” In a statement released Friday evening, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley extended the deadline for a response to 10 p.m. If there's no response, or a rejection of the offer, Grassley said in a statement, the committe may set a vote on Kavanaugh's nomination for Monday. “I’m extending the deadline for response yet again to 10 o’clock this evening," Grassley said. "I’m providing a notice of a vote to occur Monday in the event that Dr. Ford’s attorneys don’t respond or Dr....

    The Senate Judiciary Committee is postponing a high-stakes hearing set for early next week on the sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The committee announced on Friday that the Monday hearing — where both Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, had been invited to speak — was being called off. Instead, Grassley said in a statement Friday that he is giving Ford’s lawyers until 10 p.m. on Friday to respond to the GOP request for her to testify on Wednesday. If they do not, or if Ford declines to testify, Grassley said the Judiciary Committee will...

    The attorney for Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh, sent a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley Thursday afternoon saying her client is still willing to testify, but not by the Monday deadline and given a number of conditions. "I would like to set up a call with you later today to discuss the conditions under which Dr. Christine Blasey Ford would be prepared to testify next week. As you are aware, she has been receiving death threats, which have been reported to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and she and her family have been...

    Republicans haven’t officially made the decision to press forward with federal judge Brett M. Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination, but they appear likely to have the votes to do so. Three key GOP senators have fallen in line with the arguments put forward by their colleagues. They said that Christine Blasey Ford has been given a chance to share the story of her accusation against Kavanaugh in a hearing setting, and encouraged her to testify — even without the FBI investigation she says must come first. After learning of the allegation, Chairman @ChuckGrassley took immediate action to ensure both Dr. Ford...

    Tens of thousands of Californians have been registered to vote incorrectly by the state Department of Motor Vehicles, including some who were assigned the wrong political party preference, officials said Wednesday. Officials insist the errors were limited to 23,000 of the 1.4 million voter registration files sent to elections offices between late April, when California’s new automated “motor voter” system went into effect, and early August. Californians who were affected will soon receive notifications in the mail instructing them to check their voter registration status. Jean Shiomoto, the state’s DMV director, and Amy Tong, director of the California Department of...

    okay, day before primary. we have four ag commish candidates running on the R ballot. Matt Caldwell. NRA endorsed, looks like the most money but I heard he was ANTI TRUMP like Putnam was...then changed his tune when Trump won. Denise Grimsely. Reminds me of Sarah Palin. She might even be trying to imitate her. Has a B rating from NRA, but has also run her own business. I respect that. Mike McCallister. Retired army man. Running, it appears on a shoestring budget--which means if he is the nominee the Dems might be able to outspend him. He appears to...

    An Australian senator is being condemned for his speech in Parliament advocating reviving a white-only immigration policy and using the term "final solution" in calling for a vote on which migrants to admit into the country. Fraser Anning has refused to apologize for the content of his first upper house speech. But politicians across the spectrum were united in denouncing his words. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and opposition Labor leader Bill Shorten gave passionate Parliament speeches Wednesday opposing Anning's comments. ****** Anning also called for a complete ban on Muslim immigration and linked Muslim communities to terrorism and being on...

    Stolen: A noted researcher and author of a new book on Democrat-tied voter fraud says the data indicate a “tsunami” of illegal balloting is likely to take place during the 2018 midterms, which could flip enough GOP seats for Democrats to regain control of the House. Eric Eggers of the Government Accountability Institute (GAI) said in an interview with Breitbart Radio that narrow GOP election victories like the one in Ohio’s 12th district on Tuesday could flip enough seats that Democrats will regain congressional control when voter fraud is factored in. Even more unnerving: Eggers said there is enough documentation...

    For nearly 50 years, the mainstream media and the Democratic Party apparatus have said that "white men" are the most "dangerous voting bloc" because they are "racist, sexist, imperialist, colonialist, traditional, exclusive, too suburban, too rural, too in love with law-and-order, too patriotic, privileged, aristocratic, autocratic". However, it is all junk from the Left. I believe the most dangerous voting group in America today is white suburban women. They are anti-gun to the core, a small handgun makes them scared. I can understand people being afraid of an AR-15 because it is usually held by U.S. Armed Forces, but 10-20...
  • 670 ballots in a precinct with 276 voters, and other tales from Georgia’s primary [incorrect story]

    Washington Habersham County’s Mud Creek precinct in northeastern Georgia had 276 registered voters ahead of the state’s primary elections in May. But 670 ballots were cast, according to the Georgia secretary of state’s office, indicating a 243 percent turnout. The discrepancy, included in a number of sworn statements and exhibits filed as part of a federal lawsuit against the state by election security activists, comes amid swelling public concern for the security of Georgia’s voting systems. Georgia is one of four states that uses voting machines statewide that produce no paper record for voters to verify, making them difficult to...

    President Donald Trump has made it clear that immigration will be a major campaign issue for him, in both the midterm elections and in his own re-election bid, and that was evident at the president’s rally in Florida on Tuesday. “Republicans want strong borders and no crime. Democrats want open borders, which equals massive crime,” he said. “And on top of that, the Democrats…they’ve launched outrageous attacks on our incredible law enforcement officers and on ICE and our Border Patrol — can you believe it? People that keep us safe.” Trump said Democrats, in their pursuit of open borders, also...

    They’re all rooting against him, thereby (by default) hoping America, the U.S. economy and middle-class job growth either fail or fall short. And it’s not just Democrats. It’s virtually everyone in power, in government, in the establishment. Economists are rooting for Trump to fail. Democrats are rooting for Trump to fail. Ivy League eggheads are rooting for Trump to fail. The media are rooting for Trump to fail. Hollywood celebrities are rooting for Trump (and the economy) to fail.
