    Looks like Complacent Repubs are, once again, not voting.

    The Dem may well have flipped a Repub District in FL.

    100% of the vote in, it’s 52/45. Don’t know if there are any uncounted votes, but this is not even close.

        She will put up a fight for that now in the Florida House.

        This is so disgusting. People act like Trump can fix everything for them now so they can go back to sleep and he’ll take care of it all.

        It does NOT work that way, people!

        In fact, these dummie non-voters just made Trump’s job (and any Pol who wants to support him) 10 times harder.

        What a joke.

          I suspect that many independent voters are just as sick of the republican party as they are of the dems. Voter enthusiasm is going to be a real problem going forward. And the GOPe has only itself to blame. Unfortunately we will all have to suffer for it.

            EXACTLY. There is such disgust and disappointment with Republicans that the average person isn’t motivated to support them. There will be real trouble in Nov if Trump himself cannot get the voters to understand that without Republicans to back him, we get lawless judges, job destruction, government healthcare and tons of other stuff that will make their lives UNGREAT again. A vote in Nov for Repubs is a vote for MAGA– how does he get that across!?!

              He is going to have to get out among the people again. I suspect that it will be a lot harder to get people to vote for republicans that it was to get them to vote for him. Many people who are very pro Trump hate both parties. I count myself among them. I loath the neocon republican warmongers almost as much as I do the idiot liberal democrats. Although I would hold my nose and vote R simply to help the President.

          Consider the possibility that a great deal of damage has been done and continues to be done to MAGA and Trump by the constant, unrelenting msm and mueller. I don’t agree that people voted for Trump and can now sit back and let him take care of it. From my neck of the woods in PA, many Trump voters I know are influenced, to varying degrees, by msm. They are also disheartened by lack of justice, revelations with no arrests, no wall and our ocare rates that skyrocketed again this year. Their perspective is not “let Trump take care of it”. Their perspective is, no one can fix it, so why bother. Trump will need to get them excited to turn out. PA is going to be a tough win for R’s in 2018.

            I’m not overly optimistic, but your defeatism is disgusting.

            Go do something about it! I was politically active 2006-2013, when it did NO GOOD AT ALL. So I’m entitled to my opinion.

            Really? So they weren’t influenced by the MSM during the general election in 2016 and voted for Trump, but now all of the sudden they let the MSM tell them what to think, even after the MSM has been even more exposed? I just don’t think that is the case.

      Many have no idea what is true about Putin and the Oligarchs. Now we have Oleg Deripaska and Putin. Well, there is a very famous video of Oleg and Vladimir.
      Take a look and tell me you think they are allies, friends or one is President of Russia and the other guy was de-pantsed in public on cameras by Vlad.


      This was only a few years ago.

      Friends? Ally?

        ^^^^ this video is amazing ^^^^ and something that is in the back of my mind whenever I hear criticism of Putin. Putin couldn’t be in his position if he weren’t a killer, but… the man is a leader, and a good one. It horrifies me when the haters advocate for war with Russia.
        I love the moment where Putin told Deripaska to give back his pen after signing the agreement

      This is problematic. Bredesen was a more-than-decent governor in Tennessee. Like Trump, he did not take a salary.

      I have heard Bredesen referred to as a “Republican” because he had a level of common sense and didn’t automatically toe Democrat party lines. Corker can’t necessarily win over Bredesen if Bredesen runs — especially after the Iran business.

      He’s trying to force Trump to appoint him to a juicy State Depart job.
      Marsha Blackburn is running for the Senate seat and he knows Trump wants her in the Senate. So he’s leveraging against Blackburn.

      Corker is scum.
      I’d send him to a great embassy job in Europe and then week two, transfer him to Bangladesh.

      If Wray and Sessions are just play acting roles in a “Big Sting”, the act is getting tiresome. The kabuki fight between good and evil needs to be dropped, and the folks who’ve blatantly broken the law need to be charged already, starting with scum like Hillary and McCabe.

      The left attacking themselves. The DNC releasing the server to Buzzfeed would exonerate those in the dossier and disprove another aspect of it. I surmise it would also point to the US govt using Project Umbrage to leave Russian fingerprints and misattribute the hackers.

    “A federal judge in New York ruled Tuesday that the government must fully restart the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals deportation amnesty and accept brand new applicants as well as renewals, throwing a potential wrench in the ongoing debate over the fate of “Dreamers” on Capitol Hill.”

    Are we too far gone to recover? How upside down and insane can it get? Is it time to force a “Constitutional crisis” with these judicial maniacs? How does some judge in New York order the Executive to sustain an illegal Executive Order?

    Buzzfeed, in its quest to verify the dossier (because they have been sued) are now suing the DNC for its hacked servers.

    This should be good. The FBI couldn’t get to look at the servers (although Jimmy tried and tried)….but maybe a Court Order will do it?

    I listened to Dan Bongino today and some things fit together for me more clearly than previously.
    1. Brennan/CIA was the puppet master.
    2. Brennan informs FBI of the Steele dossier.
    3. Brennan meets with Dirty Harry Reid.
    4. Dirty Harry Reid writes letter to FBI demanding they look into the dossier.
    5. Brennan doesn’t do his job and vet the foreign sources, he instead lets FBI chase it on their own, knowing they would be inclined to do so given their past relationship with Steele.
    Question 1. Any change that some in the FBI-DOJ small group were in cahoots with CIA? Lisa Page?
    Question 2 (unrelated). Grassley sent out all those interrogatories to the various schemers with a due date of last week as I recall. And then another to Susan Rice more recently. Are the recipients of Grassly’s letters legally compelled to reply? What are the consequences if they don’t?
