    Canada 2019: Live updates8:01 PM EDT: Riding to watch as the votes start really flowing in from the Maritimes: West Nova, where the Liberals had a 59% chance to hold at the beginning of the night. This riding is the first real bellwether riding as depicted in the Bellwether-o-gram: the model puts the probability of a Liberal plurality conditional on winning West Nova at 90%, and the probability of a Conservative plurality conditional on that at 60%, both of which are way up from their overall probabilities at the start of the evening. For what it’s worth, the Conservative candidate...
  • Has the White House tainted Barr's investigation of the Russia probe?

    CNN Fake News ^ | 18 October 2019 | Evan Perez and Katelyn Polantz
    The Justice Department's investigation into the origins of the Russia election interference probe keeps getting unwanted assists from the White House, raising questions of how the department will be able to defend the legitimacy of any of its eventual findings. From the start, the probe has been driven by Attorney General William Barr's suspicions -- critics call them conspiracy theories -- that some of the officials overseeing the counterintelligence investigation of the 2016 Trump campaign may have acted improperly. His embrace of these theories aligns with President Donald Trump's chief grievance that he was the victim of a "deep state"...

  • Trudeau acknowledges Tories could win, accuses them of running 'dirtiest' campaign ever

    Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau today acknowledged the Conservatives could win Monday's election — and accused the party of winning support by running one of the "dirtiest, nastiest" election campaigns in Canadian history. Surrounded by 29 Quebec candidates at an event at Montreal's Botanical Garden Wednesday, Trudeau appealed to Quebecers to support his party and elect a progressive government rather than a "progressive opposition." It's a pitch he's been making a lot lately — a bid to beat down surging support for the NDP and Bloc Québécois by arguing that voting for those parties could help elect a Conservative government.

    There was a decent indication of the rout in Louisiana legislative races to come back in August, when the Democrats failed to qualify credible candidates in the majority of districts up for grabs due to term limits – including several districts they currently control. We knew then that the Republican majorities of 60 votes in the House (out of 105) and 25 votes in the Senate (out of 39) were going to expand. When qualifying was over, those 60 House votes became 63 because the Democrats didn’t event contest seats being vacated by Sam Jones, Truck Gisclair and James Armes....

    Planned Parenthood announced on Wednesday it plans to spend at least $45 million ahead of the 2020 elections, the most it has ever spent during an election cycle. The push comes as abortion rights are under assault across the Midwest and South, with state lawmakers passing abortion bans and restrictions aimed at capturing the attention of the Supreme Court. The investment intends to fund large-scale grassroots programs and canvassing, digital, television, radio and mail programs in battleground states across the country, according to a press release. Planned Parenthood Votes, the independent expenditure political committee arm of the reproductive health giant,...

    No wonder the Dems are nervous: The alleged Russian hacking of the DNC’s computers is proving to be a Hillary campaign and DNC scam that went unchallenged by Messrs. Comey and Mueller. n his telephone conversation with Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky, President Trump requested Ukraine’s help in getting “to the bottom of” the Russian collusion narrative and the role of CrowdStrike, a private computer security company, in propagating that story. Lost in the volcanic eruption of faux outrage and condemnation aimed at the president by the Democrats and their wholly owned media subsidiary, this reference to CrowdStrike indicates that the...

    It's always useful to know what a campaign is like, the lay of the land, so to speak, the supporters, the campaign operation, the candidate herself. Here in San Diego, Elizabeth Warren paid a visit Thursday, so I went, taking my elderly mother, blending into the crowd to learn how things looked from the Democrat side. The most obvious takeaway is that Warren is rising... Based on her own energetic appearance and stump speech, she's now begun campaigning as if she's got the Democratic nomination in the bag, and she's now attempting to move to the center. That signals a...

    Article estimates from 2016: " EIA estimates that natural gas production from hydraulically fractured wells now makes up about two-thirds of total U.S. marketed gas production. This share of production is even greater than the share of crude oil produced using that method, where hydraulic fracturing accounts for about half of current U.S. crude oil production."

    The rest of the title: It's 'time to risk your careers in favor of your principles.' Former GOP Sen. Jeff Flake on Monday urged Republicans in Congress not to support President Donald Trump's 2020 reelection bid, saying they have a moral obligation to put their principles first -- even if it means risking their careers. Flake, a longtime Trump critic who has before argued that the Republican Party should not support the President in 2020, made his case in an op-ed published in The Washington Post titled "Fellow Republicans, there's still time to save your souls," writing that Senate Republicans...

    The U.S. Treasury Department announced new sanctions on Monday against Yevgeniy Prigozhin, the Russian oligarch known as "Putin's Chef," for attempting to influence the 2018 U.S. election, blocking Prigozhin's yacht and private jets from entering the U.S. The Treasury previously sanctioned Prigozhin, one of the wealthiest men in Russia and a friend of Russian President Vladimir Putin, and the Internet Research Agency, the St. Petersburg-based internet troll farm, for their 2016 election meddling campaign. It is now adding additional sanctions for attempted meddling in the 2018 election.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and a delegation of Democrat lawmakers met with a number of left-wing activists and socialist politicians during their visit to Guatemala, some of which have links to billionaire George Soros. Pelosi and the Democrats made the trip to Guatemala just a few days before the country’s second round of elections, a move that was met with backlash from nationalists and conservatives who demanded the visit be cancelled. During her visit, Pelosi met with open borders activists such as Helen Mack, who has tiesto a multitude of liberal NGOs and who runs the Myrna Mack Foundation...

    Elizabeth Warren is on the way to securing the Democrat nomination, and the ensuing general election battle will be a re-run of Little Bighorn except, ironically, Sitting Bolshevik will be Custer. Trump’s going to drag her kicking and screaming and nagging, always nagging, down the trail of tears until that glorious November night when Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and maybe Minnesota all express their reservations over sending this tiresome scold to the White Wigwam in Washington. Oh, are you a True Conservative™ who gets the sadz at this Mohican mockery? Too bad, you sissy submissives – you have not seen the...

    By Tuesday evening after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced a formal impeachment inquiry of President Trump, the Trump campaign raised $1 million as donors pledged their financial support for the president. The calls for impeachment had come amid allegations that Trump withheld military aid from Ukraine in order to pressure it to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. As Pelosi announced details about the inquiry, the president took to Twitter, calling the inquiry “presidential harassment,” and a “total witch hunt.” They never even saw the transcript of the call. A total Witch Hunt! — Donald...
