  • Can Republicans Win the House in November 2020?

    PJ Media ^ | 05/24/2020 | Rick Moran
    House Republican leaders are expressing optimism about their chances to flip the House from Democrats to the GOP in November. Despite the challenges facing the party — challenges that almost all political pros from both parties agree are daunting — there may, indeed, be room for looking on the sunny side of the contest. Most political experts dismiss Republican chances of winning back the House. They point to the 41 seats that flipped in the 2018 midterms, a record number of Republican retirements, and a big cash advantage for Democratic incumbents.But a large number of those seats that flipped during...

    Even with all of the lockdown restrictions, voters somehow managed to make it to the polls yesterday for two special elections and the Republican candidates appear to have locked both of them down (if youll pardon the phrase). The first one was in Wisconsin and the result wasnt much of a surprise. In the Seventh District, the race to replace the now-retired Sean Duffy is projected to go to Tom Tiffany. The 7th is a fairly solidly conservative district and Tiffany had garnered the endorsement of President Trump. (Associated Press) Tom Tiffany, a state senator endorsed by President Donald...

    Ilhan Omar has a year full of scandals. The Democrats always protected her along with their puppy the mainstream media. Last year, a report claimed that Ilhan Omar and Ahmed Hirsi filed joint tax returns in at least 2014-2015. Yet Ilhan Omar was legally married to another man from 2009-2017. A sitting congresswoman may have filed EIGHT YEARS of fraudulent, felonious, tax returns. The Democrats denied the alleged indiscretions, though the complaints were still unconfirmed to the public at the time. Her short political career is constantly shaken with scandals. Today another scandal broke out. Ilhan Omar asked for donations...

    Fox News ^ | 04.02.2020 | Marisa Schultz
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Thursday she's creating a new House committee to oversee the coronavirus response that will have subpoena power to seek information from the Trump administration. "It would have subpoena power thats for sure. It's no use having a committee unless you have subpoena power," Pelosi, D-Calif., said Thursday during a teleconference call with reporters. "And we would hope that there would be cooperation because this is not a kind of an investigation of the administration it's about the whole [response]." Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., will chair the House Select Committee on the Coronavirus Crisis. The committee...

    ACLJ ^ | 3-16-2020 | Jordan Sekulow
    Representative Rashida Tlaib unleashed a profanity-laced attack on the National Day of Prayer. The President rightly declared a National Day of Prayer yesterday in the face of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Yet Rep. Tlaib who just promoted erasing Israel from the map and replacing it with Palestine shockingly responded to a national call to prayer over the Coronavirus by retweeting [Expletive] a National Day of Prayer. This isnt just insensitive, its a shocking perversion damaging the very credibility of our government institutions in a time of national crisis. At the ACLJ, were not just encouraging prayer, were defending...

    SANTA FE A prospective candidate in the race for the 3rd Congressional District seat who was disqualified by the New Mexico Secretary of States Office for using the wrong form to collect petition signatures is vowing to contest the decision through legal means. In an inculpatory statement provided to the Journal, the campaign for Republican Anise Golden-Morper accused Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse-Oliver, a Democrat, of playing politics and using dirty tricks to eliminate the leading fundraiser among GOP candidates. Anise is being targeted by a hyper-partisan witch hunt similar to what just happened to President Trump in Washington...

    While Trump has continuously blasted the impeachment inquiry, calling it a one-sided sham process and blocking his highest-profile officials from testifying before a Democratic-dominated House, the president has also said he would "love" for his administration officials to testify in the Senate. It will be fair in the Senate, he said ahead of the first House impeachment hearing.

    With the retirement of 14 term Republican Congressman Peter King, a South Shore Long Island Congressional District opens up for the first time in years. In what was seen as a safe district for Republicans with Peter King, New York's Second Congressional District now becomes a tossup between Republicans and Democrats. Stretching from the Town of Hempstead in Nassau County to the Town of Islip in Suffolk County, Democrats enjoy a slight enrollment advantage in this 70% Suffolk County, 30% Nassau County District. As of mid-November 2019, the district was home to 159,500 Democrats and 149,469 Republicans but add...

    A simple stone shall take down the giants Kim Clemente The rule of law has gone to hell here in America. We have a sitting US Congressman rejecting even the most basic tenants of a trial by focusing his entire case on hearsay, which is not admissible in court. Make no mistake, an Impeachment is a court case and must be tried under rule of law. But Adam Schiff doesnt care much about that, hes too busy trying to hide the antics of deep state. Meanwhile, we have Roger Stone standing trial for several different charges all predicated on...

    Cindy McCain said in a recent interview that her late husband, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), would be "disgusted" by the Republican Party's current state. "I think he'd be disgusted with some of the stuff that's going on," she said in a CNN interview that will air Saturday evening. "He'd be railing against what's going on," she added of her husband, who was a frequent critic of President Trump. "I think John provided a lot of cover for other members. And when he would do it, then they could get behind him kind of thing. And I'm not seeing that." Asked...

    The average American middle class voter does not care about impeaching President Donald Trump, according to Antjuan Seawright, the former top adviser to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign in the key state of South Carolina. "Take off your South Carolina hat and put on one that says Rust Belt," said Judge Andrew Napolitano on the latest edition of his Fox Nation show "Liberty Files." "How does impeachment play there? We're talking in western Pennsylvania, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin -- those states that your former boss lost that she probably should have won and that obviously put Trump over the top in...

    MSN News ^ | October 30, 2019 | Max Greenwood, The Hill
    Democrats are growing increasingly suspicious of Rep. Tulsi Gabbard's (D-Hawaii) political intentions, fearing that she may be considering a third-party bid for the White House in 2020 if she doesn't win the Democratic presidential nomination. Gabbard's announcement last week that she would not seek reelection to her House seat and would instead focus solely on her presidential bid only served to hasten those concerns. Some party strategists and operatives fear that a third-party bid by the Hawaii congresswoman could fracture parts of the electorate and stir chaos in the 2020 contest, ultimately setting the stage for President Trump's reelection. The...

    Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell are attacking each other in increasingly pointed terms as House Democrats burrow deeper into their impeachment inquiry. But if the top two congressional leaders cant find a way to come together soon, the government could plunge into a shutdown and any last hopes for legislating before the presidential election will vanish. The speaker and Senate majority leader have been trading grievances increasingly over the past several months. Pelosi is lashing McConnell for sitting on House-passed legislation addressing gun violence and ethics reforms; McConnell says Pelosi has done nothing to follow through on her claims that...

    The image Nancy Pelosi added to her Twitter profile last week shows her as the plucky woman at a table full of gray men, standing up and wagging her finger at Donald Trump like a scolding schoolmarm, just before stalking out of the meeting. She must imagine it portrays her in a good light. It doesnt, no matter how many progressive women share it triumphantly on social media as a symbol of female empowerment. Its more a symbol of female entitlement. Its an embarrassment to women who want to be judged on their merits, not given special treatment by men...

    The first member of the House of Representatives of Palestinian origin, Rashida Tlaib managed to change the momentum on the Palestinian question. She is fighting tooth and nail, with three other Democratic women representatives, to get Donald Trump removed from office. Michigan, bordering Canada, is best known for its once flourishing automotive industry. But the 2008 election of a Muslim woman of Palestinian origin to the Michigan House of Representatives revealed another aspect: Michigans strong Arab-American community. Miss First elected with 84% of the vote The eldest daughter of a Palestinian couple of modest background, Rashida Tlaib is the only...

    Hundreds of pro-Trump protesters gathered in front of the U.S. Capitol on Thursday to show support for President Trump and demand that Congress stop the impeachment inquiry that's moving at breakneck speed through the House of Representatives. The "March for Trump" rally, organized by the pro-Trump group Women for America First, started at Freedom Plaza before marching to the Capitol Building's West Lawn. On a brisk fall day with a gusty wind that lifted dozens of pro-Trump flags held by protesters dressed in red, white and blue, speakers and attendees extolled Trump's successes and railed against impeachment depositions that have...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff expressed confidence in Democrats' ongoing impeachment inquiry and efforts to obtain records and testimony from the Trump administration in court, while defending their inquiry from Republican criticism. Pelosi defended their timeline, without providing any new updates on Tuesday, and dismissed questions about Republican calls for a formal floor vote. "I'm not concerned about anything," she said. Republicans "can't defend the president so they're going to process."
