  • GOP Victory in OH-12: A Win is a Win, Despite Reasons for Concern

    Voters in Ohio's 12th Congressional District appear to have narrowly elected Republican Troy Balderson in yesterday's special election, thwarting Democrats' hopes to flip another GOP-held seat ahead of the midterm elections.  The race came down to the wire, but the incumbent party ultimately prevailed.  There's a small chance that provisional ballots could trigger a recount, and that absentee ballots could shift votes, but left-leaning elections guru Dave Wasserman looks at the math and effectively calls the contest over, discerning that defeated Democrat Danny O'Connor would "need a miracle" to reverse the outcome.  For all intents and purposes, and barring major...

    Sure, she’s always been a little nutty, but over the years House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has gradually shifted from liberal feminist icon to everyone’s batty “a little bit out of it” aunt who knows just enough words-about-political-stuff to be dangerous.So in the spirit of hoping Pelosi is still up for fighting for her old speaker’s gavel come November, here are the five craziest things Nutty Nancy has said in 2018 alone. (Why just this year, you ask? Because I only have one column, not a book!)“A nuclear bomb in your pocket.”Pelosi told reporters on Wednesday that it “pays to have a...

    A number of months ago, when Republicans' collective 2018 fate was looking fairly bleak, I attended an off-the-record briefing that reviewed internal party polling, highlighting the party's strengths and weaknesses heading into a challenging midterms.  The political headwinds, as they're often referred to, were blowing against Team Red -- based both on historical precedent and measurable electoral outcomes.  Many of those same obstacles remain firmly in place today.  But two of the bright spots that the assembled GOP gurus underscored were (a) the growing strength of the US economy, thanks to tax reform and other policies, and (b) the polarizing unpopularity of...

    Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) could be talking the way out of a 2018 midterm win. It’s still possible, however.  A lot of indicators have shifted away from the Democrats in that endeavor. The generic ballot advantage Democrats enjoyed has been chipped away. The messaging is off. They’re now fighting the same losing battles with Trump, like defending trashing the American flag and the national anthem, with the most recent giving cover to MS-13 gang members as folks…who aren’t so bad. Sorry, no—they’re garbage human beings who are thugs, rapists, and murderers, devoid of any humanity. They deserve to be treated...

    Democrats stand to make gains in the upcoming midterm elections -- but their cockiness about winning sweeping victories has reportedly become more restrained in recent days, thanks to tightening generic ballot polling and improved presidential approval numbers.  CNN's newest national survey shows most Americans are pleased with the general state of the country, with Democrats' 2018 advantage down to just three points (as opposed to 16 points in the same series several months ago).  Reuters' national data shows Democrats' lead whittled down to one measly point, well within the margin of error.  At the beginning of the year, 'Chuck and...

    The Boston Globe's report that former Secretary of State John Kerry met with foreign officials to discuss saving the Iran nuclear deal is the latest reminder that Democrats consistently seek to appease America's enemies while spitting in the eye of our commander-in-chief.More than a decade ago, then Speaker of the House Rep. Nancy Pelosi and a gang of other Democratic leaders defied American foreign policy and met with the ruthless and brutal Syrian president Bashar al-Assad. Pelosi extended an open-hand to an isolated country that had a penchant for violating the rights of its civilians, sponsoring terrorism, and threatening war...

    Step one: Scream that the GOP tax reform bill would be a "massive attack" on the middle class.  Step two: Concede that actually yes, nearly all middle income earners would get a tax break under the bill.  Step three: Call for its repeal anyway, effectively demanding a tax increase -- a "massive attack," one might even say -- on middle class Americans and US businesses.  It sounds like Bernie Sanders has picked up the same tax hike hymnal from which Nancy Pelosi was singing last week: Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., called Monday for the Republican tax law to be repealed...

    Thank goodness for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. If not for their continuing mistakes and unpopularity, it would have been a tough week for President Donald Trump and the Republican Party. The Trump administration is in the midst of another shake-up as a new Secretary of State and CIA Director were announced this week. More changes could be coming in the days ahead. While these changes are probably very good, the impression of an administration in upheaval is unmistakable. The President also faces the prospect of porn star Stormy Daniels continuing to generate...

    Congressman Todd Rokita, R-Ind., will introduce legislation that helps Americans keep more of the bonuses they receive by making them tax-free. The legislation, “Creating Relief and Useful Middle-Class Benefits and Savings”—known as the CRUMBS Act—also takes a swipe at House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who has repeatedly downplayed the significance of the bonuses some Americans are receiving thanks to the GOP tax plan by referring to them as “crumbs.”“In terms of the bonus that corporate America received versus the crumbs that they are giving to workers to kind of put the schmooze on — it’s so pathetic,” she told reporters last...

    If the buzz surrounding a possible challenger for the White House can be measured by the number of times that person is invited to another state, then there's a lot of buzz around Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan. Interest goes up even higher when the states they're invited to hold early caucus and primary contests. So far, the Democratic congressman from Ohio's Mahoning Valley has been to New Hampshire three times and Iowa twice. Why? "I was invited," he answers matter-of-factly. "Look, people ask me, 'What are you doing in Iowa and New Hampshire?' I say, 'I got invited.' I don't...

    The breadth of the Democratic offensives against Trump agenda initiatives is stunning. The party favorite is calling anything they don’t like racist. You all know this; it’s par for the course for left-wingers. But now they’re retroactively applying that term to things that were never considered racist in the slightest. “Chain migration” is a term demographers have used since the 1960s. It’s not a racist term, but the campaign to make it on the no-no list for political correctness is well underway. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) reiterated the talking point in her Monday appearance on The View (via Free Beacon):...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is being shunned by members of her own party for downplaying the benefits of tax reform. Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-NY) informed Pelosi that $1,000 bonuses were not "chump change."Crowley wondered whether those employers had already planned to dole out bonuses, despite the tax reform package. But, it's quite the coincidence when dozens of other companies have suddenly invested massively in their workforces after the vote. Boeing, AT&T, Darden Restaurant Group, Apple, and Starbucks to name a few.Yet, Pelosi continues to be a broken record. The employee bonuses are "crumbs" compared to the rewards large corporations...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi wants Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) removed as the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee in the middle of the uproar over a memo that supposedly exposes FISA violations and bias at the FBI during the 2016 presidential election. Republicans voted to release the memo, and President Trump said that is "100 percent" going to happen.The FBI, however, shared its "grave concerns" over the four-page document Wednesday in a rare public statement, doubting its accuracy. Democrats say releasing it will be detrimental to national security and that Republicans only want it public in order to upend...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) slammed President Trump’s framework for immigration reform that was submitted to lawmakers on Capitol Hill Thursday. She referred to the framework as “part of the Trump Administration’s unmistakable campaign to make America white again.”“The Administration’s anti-immigrant framework is an act of staggering cowardice which attempts to hold the DREAMers hostage to a hateful anti-immigrant scheme,” she wrote in a statement Friday.“The 50 percent cut to legal immigration in the framework and the recent announcements to end Temporary Protected Status for Central Americans and Haitians are both part of the same cruel agenda,” she claimed.She...

    We're just one day away from a government shutdown as Republicans desperately work to find the votes for a stop-gap spending measure on Capitol Hill. All week, Democrats have been pointing fingers at GOP lawmakers and arguing if a government shutdown does in fact happen, it will be all their fault.But according to a Democrat aide who spoke to NBC News, the goal is for Democrats to come up with enough votes to stop the funding measure from going through. In other words, they just admitted their goal is to shutdown the government, not to avert it as they've been...

    An appropriate bookend to yesterday's post , which mentioned the aspiring Speaker's "crumbs" comment, an instant Pelosi classic. Throughout the tax reform debate, liberals pounded the table insisting that corporate tax cuts would not benefit workers or consumers -- just fat cat shareholders and executives. But much like they were disastrously wrong about how much tax reform would benefit working and middle income households, they've also been proven wrong on the corporate side, as literally millions of Americans workers have already received bonuses, wage increases, improved bonuses and other concrete benefits. (Incidentally, if you missed it earlier, this clip...

    Before the Washington Post reported that the president spoke candidly about many of the nations on planet earth with economies that resemble toilets, the Democratic ranking member in the House of Representatives uttered a fascinating statement.Faced with the reality that more than 134 major corporations (just ones we know of thus far) are returning billions (with a b) in profits back to their workers by ways of bonuses, pay raises, and generously expanded benefits, Nancy Pelosi slurred her way through an auditory fog of a statement to claim the improving benefits represented crumbs.Nancy Pelosi lives in a world where $2000...

    On Thursday, House Democratic Party Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi characterized as "crumbs" the bonuses of $1,000 or more, pay raises of up to $3 per hour, and other benefits well over 100 companies have showered on over 2 million employees as a result of December's tax law passage. Given their track record, there's no reason to believe that the establishment press will report Pelosi's condescending remarks — or that they will remind their audience that in 2011 and 2012, the Obama administration and Democrats in Congress treated the prospect of workers losing $40 every other week in their paychecks as...

    A string of recent GOP defeats suggest a 'blue wave' in next year's midterms. It's a nice theory, but Democrats simply aren't up to the task. In the wake of Roy Moore’s loss in Alabama’s special Senate election last week, together with a Republican loss in the Virginia governor’s race last month, pundits are beginning to murmur that the GOP should brace for huge losses in the 2018 midterms. Democrats, we’re told, are poised to take control of the Senate, the House of Representatives, at least five statehouses, and maybe even a half-dozen governorships. It’s going to be a blue...
