Todays Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Hey, who is Marianne Williamson? I honestly have no idea who this person is, but the newsfakers at Politico think it is news that a person named Marianne Williamson is running for the Democrat Partys presidential nomination in 2020. According to Politico, she is a spiritualist whatever that means who ran an independent campaign for a California congressional seat in 2014, and failed. That race was won by Ted Lieu, one of the most despicable Democrats in todays congress, so maybe we should be wishing she had won instead. She certainly could not be any worse.
Williamsons main claim to legitimacy in the political arena appears to be that she is a pal of Oprah Winfrey. Given that the two high-profile Democrat candidates Oprah campaigned for this year Floridas Andrew Gillum and Georgias Stacey Abrams have been declared loooooooooosers in their gubernatorial races over the last 24 hours, its hard to see what value the Oprah seal of approval really has any more.
But hey, in case youre interested and have actually heard of Marianne Williamson, shes running. There you go.
Speaking of despicable California congressmen, Eric Swalwell did this on Friday:
David Blackmon @GDBlackmon Worst. Comeback, EVER. 👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇
Rep. Eric Swalwell ✔ @RepSwalwell Replying to @Rambobiggs And it would be a short war my friend. The government has nukes. Too many of them. But theyre legit. Im sure if we talked we could find common ground to protect our families and communities.

Swalwell responded to a guy on Twitter who said that the government would have to kill him to take his guns away by assuring the guy that the government would indeed kill him, with nukes. This promise to nuke gun owners will no doubt play extremely well with the demented Democrat base voters and dramatically enhance Swalwells chances in his 2020 presidential run.
Cant wait to get me one of them Swalwell 2020: Nuke em for Peace! bumper stickers.
Holy crap. You seriously cannot make this stuff up.
And since were speaking of despicable Democrat politicians The aforementioned Oprah acolyte Stacey Abrams halted her Georgia gubernatorial run on Friday, but made it clear she would never concede the race to the actual winner, Republican Brian Kemp.
In keeping with the Democrat Partys 25-year campaign to declare every Republican win to be somehow illegitimate, Abrams blamed her loss not on the fact that she received more than 50,000 fewer votes than her opponent, but on voter suppression, which is her way of saying all Republicans are racists and she only lost because of their racism, or something. Because of course she did.
No, Texas is not turning blue anytime soon. Weve seen a lot of elections experts, i.e., liberals in the fake news media, offering sage analyses of the Texas election results and coming up with the conclusion that the state of Texas is going to turn blue as soon as 2020.
Let me assure you, as a 7th generation Texan, that aint gonna happen.
Yes, the Democrat Party made gains in Texas in the 2018 elections. The Dems flipped two congressional seats, 2 state senate seats and a dozen seats in the states house of representatives. Its a BLUE WAAAAAAAVE, right? Um, no, not really.
What those results means is that the Texas congressional delegation is now 23 Rs and 13 Ds. The Rs will hold a 19-12 edge in the state senate, and 83 of the 150 seats in the state house.
Oh, and heres the other thing all these experts fail to mention: The Republicans won every statewide election held this year. Every one of them, from the governors office all the way down to the land office race. Yes, the winning margins were closer than they have been in the past 5 election cycles, but lets think about why that happened.
I can explain the majority of it in two words: Beto ORourke. His race against Ted Cruz was the first race on everyones ballot this year. ORourke, thanks to a flood of money from Hollywood and New York, was able to pour about $80 million into that race, outspending Cruz by a factor of about 3 to 1. Just above the senate race on the ballot was the option to vote straight Republican or straight Democrat tickets.
ORourke ran a mostly-positive campaign that excited a lot of voters in Texas. And thousands of those voters, perhaps hundreds of thousands of them, who might have otherwise voted for many Republicans, expressed their excitement for Irish Bob ORourke and saved a bunch of time by simply marking the box for the straight Democrat ticket.
There is simply no question that the ability to pour such a gargantuan amount of money into a single statewide race heavily influenced every race down the ballot. If you think the Republicans in Texas are going to get caught flat-footed in the money race again in 2020 or subsequent election cycles, you are going to be highly disappointed when those years come around.
I first started working Texas politics in 1996, two years after George W. Bush had become governor by defeating Ann Richards. At that time, all the wise people in Austin, all the analysts and lobbyists and reporters, assured me that this Republican thing was just a temporary aberration and that the Democrats would sweep back into power in the 1998 elections. Instead, the Rs won every statewide office and took control of the states house of representatives and senate.
After that election, all these wise people kept assuring me that by 2002 or 2004, the states growing community of Hispanic voters would sweep the Democrats back into power. Here it is 2018, and its now a quarter of a century since any Dem won a statewide election in Texas. Why? Because the Republicans keep getting a higher and higher percentage of Hispanic votes as more and more Hispanics move up into the middle and upper classes of society. Republican candidates in this years election also saw a significant gain in their percentage of black voters.
Now, there is no doubt Texas Republicans have some work to do, especially with suburban and rural women, where they saw significant erosion of support in this years voting. Some of that is the Beto effect, but you sure cant blame it all on that.
That is where the narrowing of the GOP majorities in both houses of the legislature could turn out to be a blessing in disguise, because those smaller margins are likely to force Republican leaders to focus on the states economic and budget matters in the upcoming legislative session, and leave all the social issues that tend to turn off those women voters on the sidelines.
In any event, any Democrat thinking they will can just chalk up Texass mass of electoral votes to their partys candidate for the presidency in 2020 or even in 2024 is just whistling past the graveyard.
That is all.

Good luck asking the POTUS for the deacon codes.
The POTUS should quote him for saying that drivel.
” all the social issues that tend to turn off those women voters on the sidelines”
I won’t deny this is true but it’s a real shame to the extent they fall for the border invasions, LGBTQXYZ issues, affirmative action for various preferred groups, etc.
Hey Swalley, Your next door neighbor has guns. Better drop a MOAB on him. Do it while you can sit on your front porch and watch.
It takes a real idiot to say something like this. If he tries to take any citizens right to own firearms; he just put himself in the cross hairs to be the first person retaliated against for this atrocity.
Demonrat logic: nuke/incinerate 100,000,000 people so that a few dozen thugs don’t kill each other with guns.
