    I'm feeling increasingly optimistic about the midterm elections, but I just wanted to toss out one particular data point for anyone who might not be making absolutely sure that they are going to get their vote recorded on November 6. I work for a nonprofit conservation organization based in San Francisco. As you might expect, the leadership and the employees (excluding yours truly of course!) are nearly all liberal. Last week, for the first time ever, we decided to close all of our offices on Election Day for a paid holiday so that our employees can not only vote, but...

    Early voting numbers show a dramatic increase in voter engagement in this year's midterm elections compared with 2014 totals, and preliminary turnout results in some states are sending Republicans renewed warnings of a so-called "blue wave" just weeks before Election Day.

  • Divided Democrats struggle to answer Trump’s claims on migrant caravan

    The Washington Post (AKA The Amazon Compost) ^ | October 22 at 8:31 PM | Sean Sullivan and David Nakamura
    Democrats are struggling to respond to President Trump and his Republican allies, who are casting the caravan of thousands of migrants headed toward the U.S.-Mexico border as a failure of Democrats to help enact immigration policy in the GOP-controlled Congress. Some Democrats said Trump is vulnerable to a counterattack on his core campaign issue given that his policies failed to reduce the number of unauthorized immigrants. Yet party leaders and Democratic candidates have largely been silent ahead of the midterm elections, refusing to engage with Trump. The Democratic and Republican strategies reflect the path each party has charted with two...

    President Trump on Monday declared himself a "nationalist" as he railed against Democrats and "globalists" who put the wellbeing of the world over the country. At a raucous campaign rally in Houston, Trump warned supporters that Democrats will seek to restore influence to "corrupt, power-hungry globalists." "You know what a globalist is? A globalist is a person that wants the globe to do well, frankly, not caring about our country so much," Trump said. "And you know what, we can’t have that." The crowd began booing as Trump moved on to his preferred descriptor. "You know, they have a word....

    Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” U.S. Senate candidate Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) said America needed to send financial aid to stabilize Central America to decrease asylum-seeking immigrants. O’Rourke said, “If things are so desperate in Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, that someone would risk their lives to come here than what can we do to improve situations there? We have invested trillions of dollars for wars in the Middle East. Could we invest some fraction of that to provide the stability in Northern triangle counties of Central America make sure people have a reason to stay and raise their families where...
  • AZ Sen: Democrat Kyrsten Sinema's Senate Bid Has Become A Total Train Wreck

    The Arizona Senate race is one that Democrats think they can pick up. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) is unpopular; the latest crop of Republicans that have represented the state have disappointed conservatives and its trending blue. It’s going to be tight. Right now, Republican Congresswoman Martha McSally and Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema are duking it out. Sinema had a commanding lead, but the vicious fight over the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh gave the GOP base a boost, plus the serial bad news from Sinema’s past activist history has turned her Senate run into something of a dumpster fire. There’s...

    Donald Trump told reporters after a rally in Nevada that he was planning to propose a major tax cut targeting middle-income Americans before the end of the month."We are looking at putting in a very major tax cut for middle-income people. And if we do that it'll be sometime just prior, I would say, to November,” Trump told reporters. “We are studying very deeply right now round the clock a major tax cut for middle-income people." Trump has taken criticism from Democrats for his tax cuts, which they claim only help large corporations and the top 1 percent. But...

    President Donald Trump let bygones be bygones Monday with his former rival presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz, praising the Texas Republican before heading to Houston to rally for him. When the two men were duking it out for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, Trump famously hurled insults at Cruz, christening him with one of Trump's signature monikers: "Lyin' Ted." Trump also went after Cruz's family, suggesting Cruz's father was involved in the John F. Kennedy assassination and targeting Cruz's wife Heidi for her appearance. But the president made a reversal of his past insults as he prepared for his highly...

    President Donald Trump's critics have spent the past 17 months anticipating what some expect will be among the most thrilling events of their lives: special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report on Russian 2016 election interference. They may be in for a disappointment. That’s the word POLITICO got from defense lawyers working on the Russia probe and more than 15 former government officials with investigation experience spanning Watergate to the 2016 election case. The public, they say, shouldn’t expect a comprehensive and presidency-wrecking account of Kremlin meddling and alleged obstruction of justice by Trump — not to mention an explanation of...

    A failure to elect a Democrat majority in Congress in a couple of weeks could drive leftwing actress Jane Fonda insane. Who is the source for this information? Jane Fonda herself in the October 20 Hollywood Reporter. The ironic thing is that in the same article, Fonda accuses President Donald Trump of having PTSD. First let us look at Fonda's claim that Trump has PTSD followed by an examination of who probably does really suffer from it in "Jane Fonda: 'Midterms Are the Most Important Elections of My Lifetime'."
