    The election of Beshear has been eating at me. It shouldn't have happened, and now that it has a lot of voters, teachers, and teachers unions in the commonwealth are feeling pretty smug with themselves. But they shouldn't because this is one of those, "be careful what you wish for" lessons. Here is what I'm talking about: Gov Bevin was a great advocate for individual liberty in the commonwealth. Bevin fought for the 2nd Amendment rights to protect yourselves and got constitutional carry passed, over the objections of Beshear. Gov. Bevin fought for your 1st Amendment rights and was able...
  • The 2020 Election is Trump’s to Lose

    American Thinker ^ | 11/12/2019 | Brian Joondeph
    Election season is underway, with less than a year until the mother of all elections in November 2020. Will Americans vote to keep America great or toss 250 years of liberty and prosperity to the wind in favor of socialism? Is President Donald Trump headed to a second term or will the deep state establishment thwart his reelection at any cost? I contend that the 2020 election is Trump’s to lose. Despite the media’s endless claim that “the walls are closing in” on the President, with every bit of news being a “bombshell” and that impeachment is a foregone...

    Like it or not, 2020 is going to be a plebiscite on an American version of Orwell’s Nineteen-Eighty-Four. For a variety of reasons, the 2020 election is going to be a referendum beyond Donald Trump’s record and his Democratic opposition. The furor that Trump has incurred, and the radical antithesis to his agenda and first term, have redefined the looming election. It is becoming a stark choice between a revolutionary future versus American traditionalism. The choice in reductionist terms will be one between a growing, statist Panopticon, fueled by social media, a media-progressive nexus, and an electronic posse. Online trolls...

    While President Michael Bloomberg allows China to do whatever it wants, Americans will be stripped of their firearms, french fries, and Big Gulps. Oh, please run, Bloomy… Please, please, please run… Just reading this stuff makes you dumber. How about… Oh, I don’t know… He wants to be president? Anyway, I’m not joking about wanting to see Bloomberg run.

    Mike Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of New York, is preparing to enter the Democratic presidential primary, according to NBC News, which cited a Bloomberg advisor. The move didn’t necessarily mean Bloomberg was announcing a campaign, a source close to Bloomberg told NBC News. Rather, this source said, he’s doing this to keep his options open. Bloomberg is “troubled” by what he has seen in the Democratic primary, the source added. “He’s still not sure,” a source told CNBC. This source also said these are “unprecedented times” and that Bloomberg is concerned about what he’s seeing both from Democrats and...

    Despite the focus of Congressional Democrats to push for the impeachment of President Donald Trump, a recent Monmouth University survey [link at URL] showed that Americans would rather have the election in 2020 decide the fate of the White House. An October 30 – November 3, 2019 poll showed that 59% of Americans surveyed agree that “if you want Trump out of office, it makes more sense to focus on next year’s election rather than go through an impeachment process now.” “Most Americans say that those who want to remove Trump from office would be smarter to focus on the...

    The arena is configured to hold around 7,500 people, and the house is expected to be packed Wednesday night to see the president, who is traveling to the northeastern Louisiana city hoping to muster votes for Republican businessman Eddie Rispone and keep Democrat John Bel Edwards from a second term in a crimson state Trump won by 20 percentage points. Early voting ends Saturday in the Nov. 16 election. The rally is in Louisiana’s Congressional District 5, which is represented by Ralph Abraham, who was Rispone’s Republican challenger in the primary. District 5 will prove crucial on election night.

    November 5, 2019 --- The Day Democracy died in York County, PA Thank you, Jill Stein. Your unfounded allegations of election insecurity led to an unfunded mandate by the Pennsylvania Department of State requiring many counties to replace--yet again--their voting machines with systems deemed more “secure”. Thank you, Governor Tommie (“the Commie") Wolf. Your capitulation without compensation led some Counties to choose the path of least resistance and greatest inconvenience by selecting paper ballot scanners which were inefficient at best and inoperable at worst. Thank you,York County Commissioners (only one of which might return to office). You “got your Dutch...

    There is a silver lining to the Kentucky Governer's election results that should scare the hell out of dimocrats and give new hope to Bluegrass Republicans. 1. Bevin had a bad case of foot in mouth disease. However, he wasn't any worse than any other non-politician. What made it so bad was the fact that ALL major TV and news papers in the Commonwealth are virulently liberal. When Bevin did good things the media would turn it around and trash him. When he slipped up they made seem like he was the second coming of Hitler, and then they plain...

    New Jersey Republicans defied expectations Tuesday night and won key battleground races in South Jersey. The biggest surprises of the night came in South Jersey’s battleground districts, where Democrats were looking to build on their momentum from the 2018 midterm elections and make gains in areas that historically leaned conservative. In District 1, State Sen. Bob Andrzejczak lost his reelection bid Tuesday to Republican challenger Mike Testa in one of the key races in South Jersey. The results in the 8th were a setback for Democrats who turned the district increasingly blue in the Trump era.

    Voting machines reportedly switching people’s choices have troubled a county in Indiana for the second consecutive election. Tippecanoe County experienced issues with machines switching people’s selections on Election Day on Tuesday at multiple locations, according to the Lafayette Post & Courier. Tippecanoe County Clerk Julie Roush was notified by a voter who called in saying their selection on a voting machine at a local polling location would be changed by the machine, which would mark an “X” for someone other than the candidate the voter wanted. Roush said she checked the calibration on three different voting machines after receiving a...

But I think the Clarion-Ledger is Gannett and IIRC, posting anything from Gannett is one of Jim Robinson's big no-no's. CDoes anyone know if I can post the link or not?

    In Virginia, Democrats are seeking to flip control of the state legislature, where Republicans hold a one-seat advantage in both the state Senate and House of Delegates. Democrats are eyeing seats in the northern Virginia counties outside of Washington, D.C. that have grown more liberal in recent election cycles.

    Democrat presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg says he will bring Christianity back to the White House. Not that Christiaity is lacking there but, if it were, how would Buttigieg do that when he fully supports infanticide and killing babies in abortions up to birth? That would put him more in league with King Herod than Jesus Christ. Buttigieg said: Faith doesn’t have to be something to divide us. First of all, we gotta recognize that one of those many values honored by our flag is the fact that it belongs to people of every religion and no religion equally; that’s a...

    UPDATE (2 p.m. Tuesday): The Allegheny County Elections Division provided the following update on issues and concerns -- which were said to be "nothing out of the ordinary" -- so far Tuesday morning at the polls: Clairton 3-2 reported the smell of gas from a kitchen. The gas company responded, but voting continued. McCandless 1-1 reported a calibration issue with a machine, which has been taken out of service while a technician responds to recalibrate it. McKeesport 12-1 opened late (about 8:30 a.m.) because the judge had car trouble this morning. Monroeville 2-2 had operator-error with a machine and used...

    With our country currently wading through the miasma of another potential Impeachment inquiry, it can be difficult to remember a time when the President of the United States could rise above his circumstance and truly lead a country and move it forward. As it stands, this happens to be the 39th anniversary of the election of just such a president. Thirty nine years ago, Ronald Reagan did what few other men had done in American history. He not only won the presidency, but defeated Jimmy Carter, an incumbent president running for re-election. Carter’s presidency was hamstrung by a myriad of...

    We went as a family of four -- all of us voted straight R ticket. No competitive races for us -- Republican should win easily for State Senate and Delegate. Turnout -- poll worker said about 12% already voted (11:20am). He thought it was pretty good for a small election without competitive races. Everyone here at FR seems to be so pessimistic about Virginia. I know it's a tough situation, but I still have some hope that we'll retain control.

    Reagan announced his candidacy in November, the latest of any candidate to win the election. However his state committees were already working hard to meet registration deadlines. I'm not concerned with Hillary as Trump would create the best comedy routine around her. I am concerned with Bloomberg. He has the track record and money to run a good candidacy. When would be the latest date for him to enter as a Democrat candidate? Third party candidates would just split the Democrat votes.
