Tonight was not ideal as that would have been the GOP holding the House,

however, it is not the 'blue wave' that Democrats and liberals hoped for.

The Democrats gained only half as many House seats as they lost in 2010.

The Democrats lost even more ground in the Senate with all but one of the red state Democrat Senators losing in big part because of their Kavanaugh no votes.

The Democrats were crushed in swing states like Florida and Missouri.

The Democrats lost once again in traditionally blue states like MA and MD.

In the last 105 years, only 5 presidents have gained seats in the Senate for his party. Trump is now the sixth.

The GOP now has a bullet-proof majority in the Senate and no longer needs to worry about Murkowski and Collins hijacking the judicial nominee process. This means a Pro-Life SCOTUS Justice is an even greater likelihood. It now appears certain that McSally has defeated Sinema. So Dems lost FL, MO, IN, TN, MT, ND, TX, NV, and AZ Senate races. That is a trouncing Senate-wise.

Still more to add to this post. "Republicans control every state legislative chamber in states that @realDonaldTrump won in 2016." The 'red wall' held back the 'blue wave' quite nicely on the state level.

Right now the projected turnout rate is 47.3% which is equal to the 1970 turnout rate. It was 48.7% in 1966.

Sure Democrats finally defeated Walker and Heller. Yup, you now get the Speaker of the House back but you would be idiots if it is still Pelosi! Yup, you now get to investigate the President all you want, and if you make it a three ring circus, as y'all are want to do, it will be your undoing in 2020.

Yes, you do control the purse strings, and if you shut down the government or make the economic gains of the last two years falter, you will lose the House as quickly as 2020 again.

Yes, you can try for free healthcare for all, and it will never survive the Senate. The same will go for any far left extremist legislation you propose. Please remember that.

So congratulations on your Pyrrhic victory. Y'all spent a lot of money for very little actual electoral power. Enjoy it while you can.

MSNBC Puts Florida Governor Race Vote-Total Graphic Onscreen A Wee Bit Early

It’s the kind of goof that the folks who scream about “fake news” likely will scream about. MSNBC this evening briefly put a graphic onscreen that showed “vote counts” for the Florida gubernatorial race — you know, the one being held tomorrow.

“Quick clarification here,” a rather embarrassed All In host Chris Hayes told viewers. “Just want to say, earlier this hour, uh, we showed a graphic of the Florida gubernatorial race. May have caught your eye because our system had inadvertently populated some test numbers. Obviously, we do not yet have any vote totals here, the night before the election. That was a misfire. Don’t worry. I was pretty confused when I saw it up there, to see it myself.”

How to Debunk Transgender Madness in 2 Minutes

From a friend at another site --

Fake victims get
Fake bombs, so the
Fake news doesn't have to talk about
Fake refugees and
Fake blue waves.

I couldn't have said it any better myself.

So low octane, is this one of your fellow

white anti-fascist buddies?

The moment a little white punk liberal smacks my MAGA hat on the floor, his ass is going on to the floor.

No lefty violence here right?

MAGA in Arizona!!!

Trump flew into Arizona Thursday night. He is staying at a resort within spitting distance of our home. I secured through a contact at the local GOP office tickets to the Mesa rally tonight as well as attendance at the McSally private fund-raiser. We had our picture taken with him and enjoyed the reception. We were not in a position this visit to up our amount to attend the round-table discussion but there is always 2020.

We also met Brewer, McSally, and Kyl. Flake was conspicuously absent. Overall, he was very positively received here in N. Scottsdale.

We will be heading to Mesa in about two hours. Trump will spend the afternoon at Luke AFB and then fly to the rally. I hear that attendees were at the gates for the rally at a very early hour this morning. The crowd is set to be huge. The media will lie about it as they did at the last one we attended. There will be protests but most of us here are well prepared and well-armed.

I have not met many presidents in my lifetime. I have been to quite a few rallies including most recently Sanders' here in Arizona during the 2016 primary. I met Carter at Emory when I was considering going to college there. And I met VP Bush Sr. as a youth ambassador exchange student to W. Germany.

In some ways, Trump was what I expected but in other ways he was not. He is definitely a typical New Yorker. He is boisterous, animated, and very chummy. We had a nice talk about local politics and after we mentioned that we had both been liberals for much of our adult life (she a lifelong registered Democrat and me an independent classical liberal, he actually wanted to hear more intimate details of our history and journey to right. He is a hell of a lot more intelligent than the media gives him credit.

We are looking forward to the rally tonight and will share thoughts and impressions then as well.

Why the NPC meme freaks out the left.

Will Elizabeth Warrens Woman of Color Sham Come Back to Haunt Her?

The Pallid Excuses of Harvard Law’s First ‘Woman of Color’

As I noted yesterday afternoon, back in 1997, Harvard Law School was touting Elizabeth Warren as their first “woman of color” law professor. A year earlier, the law school had told the Harvard Crimson, in response to claims that the faculty wasn’t diverse enough, that “although the conventional wisdom among students and faculty is that the Law School faculty includes no minority women, Chmura said Professor of Law Elizabeth Warren is Native American.” A year later, a Harvard Crimson editorial declared, “Harvard Law School currently has only one tenured minority woman, Gottlieb Professor of Law Elizabeth Warren, who is Native American.”

This was consistent throughout Warren’s career. As Benny Johnson noted, “Warren self-identified as a ‘Native American’ in the Association of American Law Schools Directory of law professors in every edition printed between 1986 -1995.”

A 2005 report from the University of Pennsylvania’s Minority Equity Committee referred to Warren as a minority award winner.

Back in 2012, Warren initially claimed she didn’t know the schools were referring to her that way, which is extremely unlikely. This would mean that Warren wasn’t following the debate about minority representation at the law school back in the 1990s and that she didn’t realize the law school was citing her as an example of minority representation.

But then a few weeks later she said she “provided that information to the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard.” As we now know, Warren is anywhere from 1/64 to 1/1024 Native American, and does not meet the criteria of “Native American” under anyone’s definition but her own.

So leftists defending Liawatha Warren, do you still stand by your claims that Warren never benefited professionally from her so-called Native American heritage claims?
