  • [flashback] Ryan’s Budget Bill Doesn’t Just Unfund the Wall… It Completely Blocks It!

    President Trump came out swinging this morning. Criticizing so-called conservatives in Congress for caving to Democrats on the budget, the President concluded that the country “needs a good ‘shutdown’ in September to fix” this mess. I guess that’s what happens when the President of the United States realizes that his “allies” in Congress included language in the budget that prohibits a border wall. That’s right. The Paul Ryan budget doesn’t just refrain from funding the border wall, it literally prohibits President Trump from moving forward with the project. Even if President Trump found the money somewhere else, Ryan’s bill makes...
  • Dems' hoped for surge in Hispanic turnout an illusion

    Democrats have been touting their "blue wave" for months, believing that their anti-Trump, anti-GOP hysteria will drive minorities and women to the polls. But as we get closer to election day, it is becoming more apparent that this hoped for surge in turnout among their core constituencies is mostly a mirage. There are indications that two important groups – Republican women and Hispanics – will not be giving Democrats the boost at the polls that they hoped.  Republican women are "coming home" to vote for the GOP while there is no indication that Hispanics will turn out in any greater...
  • Replaying 2014? Democrats are doubling down on same two issues that got them destroyed in 2014

    With just over two weeks until the November midterm elections, Democrats have found themselves championing two specific issues in the run-up to the elections – amnesty for illegal aliens and federal regulation of health care. This all has prompted me to wonder...does anyone remember that these were precisely the two central issues of the 2014 midterm elections? Border security took center stage in the summer of 2014, as tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors were sent northward from Central America. Democrats were emboldened, then, by the perceived rightward shift of the Republican Party, as House majority leader Eric Cantor was...

    It’s about trying to keep President Donald Trump from gaining any more ground in Midterm Elections After thousands of Hondurans arrive at the Southern Border of the USA, plant the Honduran flag on American soil on Midterm Election Day, what next? The supposed goal of the Made-To-Order-Migrant-Invasion-Of-America is to make President Donald Trump look bad by whatever means he will employ to stop them in time for Election.

    This is a question we’ve addressed here before, but recent events make it more applicable than ever. A 44-year-old Russian woman named Elena Khusyaynova has been charged with conspiracy to defraud the United States. The headline alone is enough to send chills down your spine. It’s got the word “conspiracy” right in the title and she’s not just going after a specific candidate or group of people. She’s targeting the entire nation. But what did she actually do? We can find some answers in the announcement from the Justice Department. Here’s a hint: she was “meddling.” A criminal complaint...

    Two people burn a United States flag during a protest in favor of the caravan of migrants that is currently stuck on the Guatemala-Mexico border, in front of the American embassy, in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, Friday, Oct. 19, 2018. It appears they set multiple flags on fire, as this picture from the BBC shows a second flag set ablaze and treated like garbage: Buried in a News 8 broadcast from San Diego was footage of illegal migrants and their supporters on the U.S. side breaching the U.S. fence on the border, waving a big Honduran flag, victory-style, and whipping out a...

    The Breitbart News best guess estimate 18 days before the election is that there are a range of outcomes in which either party ends up with a majority in the House. In the best outcome for the Republicans, they win 14 of these remaining 20 toss-up races, and emerge with a narrow five vote margin over the Democrats when the 116th Congress convenes in January, 220 Republicans to 215 Democrats. In the best outcome for the Democrats, they run the table in these 20 “toss-up” races and end up with a 23 vote majority in the 116th Congress, 229 Democrats...

    Could Republicans do the unthinkable on November 6th and keep a majority in the House? Politico’s Rachel Bade calls it “unlikely,” but not impossible. Bade hears from Republicans and “even a few Democrats” that the political winds have shifted enough this month that it might result in a slight GOP majority once all the votes have been counted. ....Just about every poll predicts it won’t happen: Suburban voters are too fed up with Donald Trump, and Democrats too awash in cash, for Nancy Pelosi’s party not to seize the House on Nov. 6. And yet House Republicans — and privately,...

    Like President Trump, Brazil's likely new president, Jair Bolsonaro, is openly embracing free-market economics – the hardcore Chicago Boys kind that was last seen transforming Chile into a first-world country. The real stuff. I'm going to argue that that's big, really big – not only because Brazil is a leftist sump of longtime culturally embedded socialism and dependency - but because hardcore free-market economics, the kind that turned Chile from a Venezuela-style hell-hole into a true first-world economy in a mere decade or two, has long been a dirty word in Latin America. Bolsonaro doesn't care. That is a demonstration...

    Speaking in South Florida to Parkland students and parents earlier this week, House Minority Leader Pelosi called the activists a “blessing to our country,” and said that because of their energy on the issue, gun control would be a priority for Democrats should they take back the House in the midterm elections. “I admire you so much,” she said. “You have the purpose, the generosity of spirit. You have the marchers — you have people who will go out there to make a difference — and you just have a relentless, persistent, dissatisfied approach.” But not all parents of Parkland...

    SANTA MONICA, California — Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams looks thoughtful in in the lobby of a beachfront hotel on a sunny Thursday afternoon as he tells me that the phrase “jobs not mobs,” which he suggested on Twitter six days before, would be catchy — though he adds that Republicans had not yet used it. Literally minutes later, President Donald Trump tells a rally in Montana: “Democrats produce mobs. Republicans produce jobs.” The president tweets soon afterwards: “#JobsNotMobs.”
