  • Nancy Pelosi: ‘25,000 Votes Could Determine the Gavel’

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) acknowledged that just 25,000 votes could determine whether Democrats take back the House and Democrats are preparing for a scenario in which the country does not know which party controls the House on election night. When asked if Democrats will know on election night that they have picked up the net 23 seats they need to win back the House, Pelosi told Politico in an interview published Tuesday that DCCC Chair Ben Ray Lujan (D-NM) “says we should be prepared for not knowing, but I’m just hoping that we will.” “That the 23 for...

    With the election less than 24 days away, Republicans are seeing momentum in polls after the Kavanaugh hearings and a new path to holding their majority in the House. To do this, they need to stop Democrats from reaching a net pickup of 23 seats, which will likely require raising more last-minute money. Currently, many election watchers believe Democrats will gain anywhere from 20 to 40 seats. However, if their loss of momentum persists, the lower end of that range becomes more likely and Republicans would maintain a slender majority.

  • Matthews: ‘Taste of Mussolini’ with How Trump Acts at Rallies

    On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” host Chris Matthews stated that there’s “a taste of Mussolini” in President Trump’s behavior at his rallies in the way that Trump walks around “with a tie that’s 8 feet long,” his coat open, and “clapping for himself.” Matthews said, “[T]here’s a taste of Mussolini here with a guy walking around with a tie that’s 8 feet long, coat open, making — clapping for himself. I know the Chinese do this, you clap for yourself in that culture. But he’s clapping away about — is he applauding himself and his presentation here?

    Police arrived at White Plaza early Tuesday afternoon in response to a call from Stanford College Republicans (SCR) President John Rice-Cameron ’20, who alleged that Melinda Hernandez ’21 physically assaulted him at an SCR tabling event the group was holding in support of Brett Kavanaugh’s recent Supreme Court confirmation. Hernandez and multiple other witnesses denied these allegations, claiming that she touched him without force.

  • Several questions for Democrats

    Vanity | 10/8/18 | Republicanprofessor
    Several questions for Democrats: 1) What was the last constructive thing that the Democrats did for this country? (Protesting, whining, disrupting hearings and “resistance” does not count as constructive. Signing a new trade agreement between Canada, Mexico and the U.S. is constructive.) 2) What constructive plans do the Democrats have in case they do win the House? I’m not sure that axing the tax cuts and abolishing ICE are constructive. 3) What would the country and world look like now if Hillary had been elected? Consider these issues: first, there would probably have been no #MeToo movement; the investigations and...
  • The choice for America is simple – Susan Collins or Linda Sarsour

    10/08/2018 1:06:14 AM PDT · by Eleutheria5 · 13 replies
    As we get it, the women’s movement is largely about a woman’s right to choose. How odd that they’ve chosen a sharia advocate as their leader, Linda Sarsour. Sarsour, part of the wave of Palestinian Arabs who’ve entered this country over the past few years, stands for wife beating, honor killings and female genital mutilation. That is sharia and those are the rules where she comes from. She never leaves the house without the Islamic head-covering. Which is her statement that she supports all of that and intends to make it The American Way. But do certain American women know...

    The Resurgent ^ | October 5, 2018 | Erick Erickson
    I have long been critical of Republicans who abandoned principles to stand with Trump and I am as critical of Republicans who abandon principles to oppose Trump. Principle should stay because people go. The Kavanaugh nomination has been clarifying in this regard. Seeing some conservatives willing to aid and abet character assassins because Trump nominated Kavanaugh is disgusting. I find myself in an odd position where, for the first time, I see myself, one of the original so-called “Never Trump conservatives,” voting for President Trump in 2020. I have inevitably concluded at times that Trump would do something to push...

    I accept that Murkowski will vote no on confirming Kavanaugh. As for Collins and Flake, I don't trust how they will vote on confirmation, no matter how they vote on cloture; believing them both to be snakes and willing to put Trump hatred above what is right as regards Kavanaugh himself.
