      Some Tweeters are complaining that they weren’t allowed to vote because of the redistricting map at some of the polls. Saccone was 90 votes behind when polls closed but absentee ballots hadn’t been counted yet

      DI: I question the “‘Save” PDJT . Seems to me #45 has already accomplished far more good for Americans than many of his predecessors of the 21st and 20th centuries ! But I agree the continued social and civil discord being created by the LSM and his political and economic opponents could well erupt into open civil conflict.

      Pa 18 did a poor job of saving Trump. Bad people those who are benefitting from his jobs and taxes, and voted for the enemy. Ingrates! Fools! Say good bye to all of it if in the mid terms they all skate to the wrong side of the rink and score one for the opponent. No KAG 2020 because Trump is staying around to get ignored, left on his own and get bullied for ingrates!

        GOPe needs to stop trying to shove “Right-to-Work” Koch-heads into Union/Labor representing districts, and forcing Trump into a position to have to defend these candidates when everyone knows he doesn’t support that message.

    For all those falling for the MSM talking points, you are making a fatal flaw when comparing how our President did in this District in 2016 versus how Saccone did this evening. When you compare our President running against ultra liberal HRC, a District with 50K more Democrats said we are going with DJT. Lamb ran on all MAGA agenda items except immigration. He was further right than Saccone the Republican on certain agenda items.

    Here is one area that Saccone blew and Lamb took advantage of:

    It is not an apple to apple comparison! Had Lamb run on HRC’s agenda, he would have got destroyed. That is the point you need to remember. The majority of Democrats run to the far left not the middle. In Districts our President won, that will devastate them. Keep that in mind.

    Here are a few perfect examples of their stupidity!

    The Democrats are truly the gift that keep on giving! Good luck running on the platform that if you win the 2020 Presidential Election 🗳, you are going to get rid of ICE. Immigration was by far our President’s biggest agenda item that got him elected.

    From the article linked above:

    The Democrats mulling a run for the White House in 2020 are facing intense pressure from liberals to campaign on abolishing the agency that enforces federal immigration laws, a proposal that was once relegated to the far-left fringe.

    In January, the idea was endorsed by Brian Fallon, a former top aide to 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, and Eric Holder, President Barack Obama’s attorney general. The Daily Caller first drew attention to the calls.

    “ICE operates as an unaccountable deportation force,” Fallon tweeted. “Dems running in 2020 should campaign on ending the agency in its current form.”

    “Though the party has moved left on core issues — from reproductive rights to single-payer health care — it’s time for progressives to put forward a demand that deportation be taken not as the norm, but rather as a disturbing indicator of authoritarianism,” McElwee wrote.

    Democratic officeholders also have been openly rebelling against ICE, including Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, who recently tipped off the public to an immigration raid in the San Francisco Bay Area.

    Good luck with this one in November given the financial benefits that 90% of Americans feel every time they receive their paycheck!

    Here is another important fact!

      It’s really quite simple.

      The dims needed a convincing, large margin victory to keep their “blue wave” narrative alive.

      All the GOP needed to do was keep it close, much less win outright.

      This was a battle for narrative, not control of the House.

      And the “blue wave” narrative suffered a decisive defeat tonight. Period. End.

      That won’t keep liberal gas bags from squealing about a “blue wave” in Nov., but tonight’s election just makes them look less credible…much the same as their “Blue wave Texas” was proven to be all hot air.

      In this sense, PDJT won tonight. He didn’t need a big win. He just needed to prove the “blue wave” narrative was BS.

      Job done.

          Like I said, GOP just needed to keep it close from the fantasy gaining traction in the minds of LoFos. And a contested election, which this will undoubtedly be, is NOT going to be a convincing “blue wave” narrative win.

            They were very demoralized before this recent string of wins. And AL. sealed it.

              There have now been 8 national-level special elections since Trump took office. 7 of the seats were held by the GOP, 1 was held by a Dem.

              2 of the 8 seats changed parties, both from GOP to Dem (Alabama Senate; PA18 House if Lamb wins).

              Moore was hit with sexual/pedophile charges during the campaign, and was already known as a weak candidate in Alabama. Trump did not want him as the candidate.

              Saccone was a bad candidate running in a +50K Dem district against a good Dem candidate from a political family who had no record to hurt him as a candidate. And Lamb ran, basically, as a conservative.

              Winning and losing matters, of course, and is the ultimate bottom line. But falling into incomplete analyses that read like media talking points isn’t going to solve much, I don’t think.

                  I’m not worried about state level races. National races are what concern me.

                  GOP/RNC needs to up their game in regards to picking candidates and doing better messaging.

                  Obviously, the GOP voters need to get it together.

                  One thing at a time, in my mind. There is always going to be pendulum swing when one side wins.

                  Look, I’m with you 100% on sounding the alarm. But we can’t ignore positive signs, either.

                  If we control the Congress and the SCOTUS, we will be in great shape.

                  First we win and control one thing, and then the other. The states will come to heel after MAGA works nationally.

        Agreed, ForGod, particularly given how the race was trending late (big swings towards Lamb).

        The reason why the MSM is so fevered to get the final results tonight (after the Allegheny absentees came in) rather than wait for them to come in fully tomorrow is they need to blare “BLUE WAVE COMING! TRUMP EMBARRASSED!” as soon as they can.

        This is why MSNBC and CNN are talking to election officials and pushing them to get the counting done.

        This is the last Dem/MSM “signpost” (if Lamb wins) before the midterms that is likely to go their way. There are 2 more special elections for the House before November, and both should be red.

        They NEED this. Hence the over-hyping and urgency.

        This is not a typical “Trump won by 22 points:” district. Believing it is or portraying it as such is either ignorance or propaganda.

        The Dems did not get what they wanted tonight. Not cleanly.

        Hopefully we win outright. But we still did some good work here, to make this much closer than where it was headed.

        Pre-polls and then an interview showed that a significant number of Trump supporters went full on stupid for cute and young Conor while mouthing words or praise for President Trump, ignoring his advice and sacrifice. If these types of Trump supporters keep knocking in goals for the other team without paying attenti9n to the Team Captain, all bets are off 2020. Prayers and post cards are not enough to overcome this kind of utter lack of sense.

    On the Saccone vs Lamb race…..There were some dynamics at play here. I’m from the district. First, Murphy left disgraced and that hurt the Republican brand.Badly… Murphy always ran and was a moderate in a D (50,000) district. Second, the confere appointment of a Saccone ( there were a total of 3 including Saccone for Murphy’s seat) left two camps, the westmoreland county candidate and Allegheny county candidate butt hurt. At least one candidate virtually gave zero support to Saccone. That non support alone probably cost Saccone 1,000 votes. Three, Saccone is a good guy but lacks charisma and honestly appeal to some Conservative democrats and moderate republicans. This is zero reflection of Trump, who is loved here. The real blame is the lack of continuity in the republican leadership in this district and state. Plus individuals who put person before party. Local politics folks, that’s it in a nut shell. Don’t lose heart, and certainly don’t look at this as some blue trend. It’s not. The stars never aligned on this one. We need Trump like candidates to emerge and they will. Lesson..so important to have everyone on same page and fighting in same direction.

        I’m disappointed obviously, but a realist. Trump is a “Difference maker”…Democrats really like him in this district, and his support has not wavered. These local races come down to a clean ground game and party unity. We did NOT have enough party unity. We had some selfish players and it probably cost us a winnable race. I’m not making excuses it’s just the damn truth. The Republican Party in many ways is its worst enemy because we can’t come together at the right time. We see this Gope fighting MAGA. The Dems are really solutionless, but they stick together while we go into a circular firing squad. When we find good candidates who can articulate and lead and have that charisma we win every time. Murphy was anchor on this race. Believe it…But in the end it wasn’t lamb being some great candidate…he was not. It was a Republican Party, splintered just enough at mostly the local level and the Gope who fail to support that snatched sure victory with a very average R candidate. The perfect storm.

          That district loves Trump. As you know, however, they are willing to elect a Dem if that Dem reflects their values. Or pretends he does, anyways.

          That’s what Lamb did. Gotta give him credit on presenting himself as a conservative, basically.

      Thanks. Great post. I have one small objection: Every district has party people who get butthurt when their candidate isn’t picked in the primary. That’s part of the margin for error.

      Democrats have their ideal candidate template. He/She will be stealth mode on MAGA issues and not mention impeachment. Like much else in life, one can beat nothing with something. We need actual accomplishments this legislative term. Time is of the essence.

        I’m not there, but as a poll worker what likely happened is that some of the precincts had confusion because of the New district lines, and people weren’t in those precincts anymore – this race was set up on Old district lines. What SHOULD have happened in that case, is that a provisional ballot should have been cast and then sorted out after the fact. Turning them away was wrong, probably lost some votes there.

    I used to be a Democrat until 33 years ago. I am the first Republican in my family, although many of them always voted Republican. I was President of the Young Dems in our county in 1985, but switched to the GOP that year over the abortion issue, once I saw who our party was going to nominate here in NC for its races.

    There are two problems that the GOP had then and continues to have now.

    1) The GOP party exists for NO PURPOSE except to nom candidates and to provide window dressing for the GOP candidates to make it look like there are actually people in the precincts who are active and labor for the party. The ONLY activists who do ANY work for the party or evangelicals and tea partiers. When the party runs a GOPe candidate, people are not enthused to get out and turn the vote out. So the GOP just depends on C of Commerce money to pay for media campaigns. I went into two different county parties last year about a month before the election looking for Trump yard signs. Both were dead. One had the local party chair there and questioned me like I was an ICE agent showing up at a Cinco de Mayo party. I told him I came for a yard sign for Trump. They had some but they were not with the other signs. He asked me for 5 bucks and I paid him and left.

    Then later that day, I went to my own county party office. There were 3-4 older guys sitting in the back of the office, drinking coffee and talking among themselves. All they needed was a checkers board and a pretty waitress and you would have thought you were walking into the diner on Andy Griffith show. I told them I came to help. They took my name and number and never, ever called me.

    God bless them.

    2) Our party simply has to focus on candidate recruitment. Most of the MAGA voters do NOT want the same ole, same ole, Chamber of Commerce, lobbyist-lookalike good ole boys for candidates. We VOTE for them, but they don’t inspire anyone to actually get out and vote. We also need to stop choosing candidates that like to preach down to voters. I am a single-issue voter, and will never vote for a pro-choice candidate. EVER. But Roy Moore and this Saccone guy both were weak candidates and I cannot fathom why people in the party pushed them forward as our candidates.

    Laziness and self-inflicted wounds cost us elections. NOT PDJT and the MAGA team he has put together.

    In my opinion.

      With you all the way, especially on the candidate recruitment. We need better recruitment.

      What happens so often is that operatives will choose candidates based upon how much money they will be paid, and so forth. They don’t care if the candidate is good, many times, they just want to get paid and aggrandize themselves.

      We have to get away from that.

      The Dems are now serious on running good (read: Fake MAGA) candidates. If we do the same, we should hold Congress for Trump. If we do not do this, and run poor candidates, we will lose. As with Roy Moore and apparently Rick Saccone.

    If you are a feeling like a chicken little doomsayer, I’d ask you to reconsider before posting things similar to the “Sky is falling” narrative we are going to hear for days should Lamb prevail in Pennsylvania.

    Does the RNC/GOP need to wake up? Yes.

    Is the RNC outraising the DNC? Yes.

    Is the “Trump won PA18 by 22 points and OMG Blue Wave after Lamb win” a false narrative? Yes.

    Is the GOP apparently getting more increased registration than Dems in key states? Yes.

    As I stated in a reply above, there have now been 8 national-level special elections since Trump took office. 7 GOP seats, 1 Dem seat. 2 of the seats flipped parties (Alabama Senate; PA18 if Lamb wins).

    Roy Moore was a disastrous candidate (sexual stuff during the race) whom Trump knew would be vulnerable in the general election. Thanks, Bannon.

    Rick Saccone was a no-charisma, no-fundraising castaway who was going against a military veteran from a political family who ran a great campaign and who had no political baggage to weigh him down. In a +50K Dem district.

    Don’t fall for the spin. We have to win, but we’re not going to win based upon hysterical reactions and emotion.

    We’re going to be hit hard with Blue Wave Fever the next few days. I would advise people who get upset by such things to turn off the media for awhile.

      It’s ALWAYS posed a clear and present danger to our freedom and safety. It’s ALWAYS been clear that PC was a mental and emotional manipulative tool with a political agenda!

      I STILL can’t believe anyone would get upset over “offending” anyone, much less a liberal snowflake. smh

      Being “offended” is a choice! Look….

      Say I call someone an idiot. That can be an honest opinion, or I could be TRYING to offend that person. Regardless, at that moment, they have any number of emotional choices to make. They can laugh it off, ignore it, respond in kind, get angry, etc.

      But the KEY THING is….that’s their choice!

      Telling someone “I’m offended” implies that the accused offender is responsible for the other person’s emotional choice….which is BS….particularly when they have the choice of laughing it off or ignoring it altogether….and this regardless if the accused was trying to be offensive or not. In fact…

      Telling someone “I’m offended” only serves to tell them they own you emotionally and can push you off your center anytime they choose. This is why PDJT is such a master!

      The only reason why PC ever worked is because there are truly so many stupid people walking around with victim mentalities who don’t know how their own minds work.

      Do you think PDJT actually cares if he offends anyone? I got news for you. He doesn’t. Not in the slightest. And THAT’s why he’s untouchable and his liberal targets are his footstools. THAT’S why people say Trump is living in their heads “rent free”.

      Let’s just hope the liberal idiots don’t wake up until after 2020. Meanwhile, there are a LOT of conservatives and moderates who really need to do so, and a number of them are here at CTH.

    Also, if the Dems do well with their “fake conservative, fake blue dog” candidates, then my guess is that you will start hearing more about Biden running in 2020.

    Biden will not beat Trump (at least not straight up; could be different if Trump is impeached, economy staggers, etc).

    Hillary ran as a Blue Dog Dem (or some version of that) in 2008, to Obama’s radical. She tried to win with working-class whites. Since that time, Dems have basically abandoned that strategy and gone far, far left.

    The Dems will do anything to win. That’s why they are running people like Conor Lamb.

    Kamala Harris, Deval Patrick, Elizabeth Warren, Oprah and so forth are not going to help you win whites against Trump.

    Biden might, at least Team Obama (who is still running the Dem Party) could think that Biden might. And Biden is an Obama puppet now (unlike Bernie Sanders).

    Look for this is more “Conor Lambs” win in 2018, particularly if the Dems take the House.

    One such scenario I read was Biden runs and will only serve one term as president, and then the Dems put in someone else (maybe Biden/Deval)?

    Joe is a goofball. But if Team Obama thinks he can help them get power back in the White House, he will be considered.

      If Trump were to run as an Independent, Trump would get all the Republicans as before who voted for Trump and half the Democrats. The only way Trump doesn’t win re-election is if he says, “I’m not running”. Trump would probably have more democrats support his policies if Trump was an Independent.

          Fines associated with the crimes also would increase. Fraudulent use of a ballot, for instance, would rise from a state jail felony to a third-degree felony, punishable by two to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

    This is an unexpected development. The pleading is included in the article. Oddly, the investigator they hired, who broke the story on Fox, is not a defendant in the suit.

    The article also alleges that Sean Spicer was briefed on the story’s progress.

      See my tweet below. I believe this was prepared for Pompeo going to State. They expected that at some point there would be massive moves against Clinton, so they decided to blitzkrieg the right media on weak stuff to divert them from attacking Cankles.

      Kinda smart, but my feeling is that a hard push back is going to win. For example, the attacks on Charlottesville are almost destined to fail if big discovery is granted, because there is so much sketchy on the van blockage.

      Big Ugly getting big and ugly.

        I see where you’re going with this. And if you’re right, it is a genius move.

        That said, this is an odd suit. The original story broke on an affiliate Fox station. That reporter is a named defendant. Sean Hannity who covered the story on this show is not a named defendant.

        Evidently, Fox News had the story on their website for about a week before they took it down and the parents are claiming that it has caused continued emotional distress because the story/theory is perpetually being spread on social media.

        In reality, the story began with Wikileaks and has taken on a life of its own, entirely separate and apart from Fox News. In fact, it would still be a story/theory in perpetuity even if Fox had never covered it.

        It’s just odd all around.

      After reading Dallas County DA investigating possible mail-in ballot fraud, the next ‘DallasNews’ headline caught my eye.
      (“Stormy Daniels” & her Notary live in Texas!)

      An observant NY Notary noticed a notary violation on the (alias) Ms. Daniels’ NDA and reported the *named* Texas Notary, now herself under a State of Texas Demand letter – & wants to see her ‘recordbook’ – last 10 entries, I think it said!
      Apparently, per article, Ms. Daniels is claiming her “activity” occured in California.

      Excerpt:
      “Texas officials are investigating whether a Dallas-area notary properly signed off on Stormy Daniels’ agreement to stay quiet about her alleged affair with President Donald Trump.

      The notary issue is the latest in a string of curiosities surrounding the murky deal involving Trump personal lawyer Michael Cohen and the adult-film actress, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.

      A notary in Forney, where Daniels lives, did not sign and date the 2016 agreement, which was finalized a few days before the presidential election. She also did not provide a certificate reflecting whose signature she was witnessing, according to the Texas Secretary of State.”

    Like I said in another thread, talked to a blue dog Democrat relative. The Dems have gotten their talking points out in this region. 1) Only management got the bonuses from the tax cuts 2) Trump was full of bull; coal’s not coming back. These people are also scared to death about healthcare. The Republican establishment HATES these kind of people. They view them as ‘useless eaters’. They are not interested in their votes</i<

      This aint going to play well with some, but I’ve also heard from the same corners WTTE “people didn’t vote for mass deportations; they voted to drain the swamp” and there hasn’t been a lot of swamp draining. Now, I very much want the mass deportations, but I’m a right winger. I think a lot of the never voteds and dem crossovers were sick of DC corruption and wanted to see an outsider do something about it. All anecdotal.

    I don’t know much about your local elections, as a foreigner, but how are the candidates found for a race like in PA? What I see from Denmark, is that people don’t want the same old, same old that’s why Trump is president, Le Pen got 33%, brexit, and all the other political surprises we have had the last two years. But when it comes to elections like last night, the Rep kandidate is a old, nice, soft talking grandfather type, or the Moore type….. where are the 30 something M/F with passion, love of God and country, who can show, that Trump is not a unicorn, he’s not the only personality in a party full of granddads, and invisible wall flowers.

        As I live in Europe, I’m only familiar with the high profile names, and the candidates covered here and on RSBN, so I only know Jim Jordan and I like him. But why isn’t the party out finding JJ in every state? Moore was not my cup of tea, maybe Becuse the cowboy image is not really the European way, but he was not a party candidate, and the party’s ran a swamp fiend against him, instead of a new fresh Trumpican candidate.
        I’m in local politics myself, and I know that the “old boys” club doesn’t get changing political ideas, as they think progress is doing today, what they did last year, but I am running to get in to the leadership of the local party, and stir s#*% up, because we need to learn a new way of politics too, here in the old wold, no more nice guys, no more going more than halfway to compromise, Trump showed you can beat the system, but we have to get down in the dirt and kick the dust off the system

    Jeff Sessions may have another recusal problem.

    I’m just gonna leave this here:

    Jeff Sessions Has a Huge Conflict of Interest in a Federal Bribery Case—and It Keeps Getting Worse
    As Alabama’s junior senator, Jeff Sessions was far more involved than previously known in helping two of his top contributors derail a federal environmental cleanup effort, according to records obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by Mother Jones and the Project on Government Oversight. The stalled cleanup is now at the center of a federal bribery case spearheaded by the Justice Department, posing a serious conflict of interest for Sessions, who is now attorney general. Yet there is no indication that Sessions has taken any steps to recuse himself from this matter…

      ——————-

      Total scare-mongering article. Here’s your most salient quote from the entire piece:

      “Various officials stepped up to the plate for Balch and Drummond. There is no evidence the officials were clandestinely paid to do so. Rather, both firms have sought influence the traditional way—through generous donations to state legislators and members of the state’s congressional delegation. One of the most powerful allies Balch and Drummond had in their corner was then-Sen. Jeff Sessions.”

        All of the information came from FOIA requests.

        Sessions was quick to recuse himself over the Russia scandal, over anything to do with the 2016 campaign or Russia. He even announced his attention of doing so publicly during his confirmation hearing.

        Yet in this case he demurs to his press spokesman, and has her give some lame excuse about the possibility that his recusing himself would tip off defendants on the status of investigation/litigation.

        Well, I call that double-standard out as pure bullsh*t on the face of it.
        I’ve been on the fence about Sessions for months now, but this information makes me start to wonder if he’s worried as hell that if he rocks the boat by going after the Deep State that they’ll be coming after him next and using this information as their ammunition.

        Did you ever think about that, or are you immune to imagining such possibilities for blackmail by known character assassins?

    I agree with Albertus Magnus upthread.
    State Parties are driving us crazy here as well. Zero help nationally and nothing but threats to my business from the state party because we supported Trump instead of Cruz.
    The stereotype of 4 old guys playing checkers, “Mayberry”, not welcoming new blood is typical. Yet, in our little county, our Repub club increased membership by 400%+ because we wanted the Trump supporters – AND we got young people too.
    Like many Treepers here, we had to fight like crazy for our slate of delegates, against the Cruzbots, in 2016.
    And this is a state organization my family has been involved with since the 1960’s.

    For a recent state senate election, we went through re-districting and lost our “guy”. Replacing him was a guy who became the Dem Minority leader in the State Senate. He was from a neighboring county with a larger population.
    Ugh.
    We recruited a young local biz man and farmer to run against him. On our own, with no help from state or national, we flipped his seat a few months ago by turning out about 40% of our county – which overpowered the neighboring county turnout.
    There’s only about 50 people in our club but we did it.

    We have to do more at the local level, despite the obstacles and no money from state or national.
    I admit, despite contributing to the RNC and Congressional races for almost 60 years, the RNC will get no more of my family money. We have to work every race, locally.
