  • Rachel Maddow Uses Non-Existent ‘House Popular Vote’ To Try To Prove There Really Was A Blue Wave

    The Daily Caller ^ | November 16, 2018 | Virginia Kruta
    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow referenced the “House popular vote” in an effort to explain how the Nov. 6th midterm elections really did represent the “blue wave” many Democrats had been hoping to create. “As of this morning, the Democratic lead in the US House popular vote is up to 7.3%, from 7.2% yesterday. For comparison purposes, note that in 2010 – which was widely seen as a GOP ‘wave’ cycle – Republicans won the US House popular vote by 6.6%,” Maddow tweeted. (TWEET-AT-LINK)What Maddow was saying was that overall, more nationwide votes were cast for Democrats in House seats than for...

She’s going to be, in terms of power in the House of Representatives, a nonfactor, except the media is going to try to build her up. I’m speaking, of course, about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who doesn’t even know what the three branches of government are, Dawn. She doesn’t even know what the three branches of government are! She revealed over the weekend she’s got no idea. This was during a conference call with prospective far left political candidates. And, by the way, she has acknowledged exactly...

    international man ^ | FR post 19NOV18 | Editorial staff
    The concept of government is that the people grant to a small group of individuals the ability to establish and maintain controls over them. The inherent flaw in such a concept is that any government will invariably and continually expand upon its controls, resulting in the ever-diminishing freedom of those who granted them the power. When I was a schoolboy, I was taught that the feudal system of the Middle Ages consisted of serfs tilling small plots of land that belonged to a king or lord. The serfs lived a meagre life of bare subsistence and were subject to the...

    The Conservative Treehouse/The Last Refuge ^ | November 8, 2018 | Sundance
    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...

    Newly declassified documents reveal the CIA—which is supposed to be strictly limited in the types of surveillance and other secret operations it conducts on U.S. soil—routinely monitors U.S. government computer systems. That information is contained in two formerly secret letters of “congressional notification” written in 2014 by the Intelligence Community inspector general at the time, Charles McCullough. In the letters, McCullough reveals the CIA secretly intercepted and collected emails between congressional staff and the CIA’s head of whistleblowing and source protection. The collection was said to occur as part of the CIA’s “routine counterintelligence monitoring of government computer systems.” Several...

    A judge dismissed a lawsuit Friday filed by Rep. Mia Love against Salt Lake County Clerk Sherrie Swensen over how ballots in the tight 4th Congressional District race are being verified. But in new results released later Friday, Love took a 419 vote lead over Democratic Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams. Love has trailed McAdams in the 4th District race since election night Nov. 6. McAdams did gain 167 more votes than Love in Salt Lake County, but the two-term congresswoman added 1,588 more votes in Utah County, a conservative stronghold. She now has 129,006 votes to McAdams' 128,587...

    Wake up America. If you believe the House of Representatives controlled by Democrats and the Senate controlled by the GOP is a good thing, you better think again.. For starters the House Democrats under blank brain Pelosi have made their intentions clear: Investigate, prosecute and maybe never legislate. They’ve already announced their intention to subpoena Trump as part of a wide ranging investigation probably collusion with Russia, his tax returns. women he grabbed, women who grabbed him, cheating in golf using a “foot wedge” and horror of horrors, using an environmental unfriendly hairspray. Seriously, the Democrats are about to unleash...

    Get ready for the Democrat Brawl that will pass off as the New Congress of 2019 Things are not nearly as kosher for House-winning Democrats as the mainstream and social media would have the masses believe. Rather than them celebrating the so-called results of the overhyped Blue Wave that failed to materialize, they’re scrambling to overturn Republican election night victories courtesy of surfacing boxes of ballots forcing recounts for which we already know the outcome.

    “Let’s just call a spade a spade. Tennessee is racist. Period,” Lamar said in the video. “Period. Like, Tennessee is racist.” There’s no subtly there… but to ensure clarity she specifically named “white people,” before proceeding to call them stupid. “Most of the Tennesseans who voted Republican are uneducated. So, they don’t even know that they showed up to the polls to vote against their own interest,” she added

He’s even publicly outlined Trump investigations he wants to see other committees run, so we expect they’ll have very little on their agenda beyond that sort of political messaging,” a Republican HPSCI aide told The Daily Caller News Foundation Tuesday.

    WASHINGTON — Congress returns to a changed political landscape Tuesday as newly-elected lawmakers arrive in Washington, the parties elect new leadership and incumbents square off for one final legislative sprint before House Democrats take power. Voters swept away eight years of House Republican control in last week's election, creating a new political dynamic that's challenging President Donald Trump even before the new 116th Congress begins in January. For their last act, Republicans will try to deliver on Trump's promise to fund the border wall, which could spark a partial federal government shutdown in weeks. Newly emboldened Democrats are in no...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told The Atlantic in an interview published Sunday that she doesn't know whether President Trump is stable. “I don’t know. You can’t make a diagnosis over TV, they tell me," Pelosi said when asked if she thinks the president is stable. Pelosi, who last week announced her bid to be the next Speaker, also told The Atlantic that anyone who watched President Trump's post-election news conference last week "would know that we have to pray for our country very deeply." “Pray for him, too, but for our country,” she added. Trump has previously defended...
