Thread #4 – 2018 Midterm Election – Results and Discussion Thread

Republicans winning in key Senate races in: Florida (Rick Scott), Missouri (Josh Hawley), Indiana (Mike Braun), North Dakota (Kevin Cramer), Tennessee (Marsha Blackburn), and Arizona (Martha McSally) looks good.   Disappointing loss for John James (Michigan).

Governor races also generally good for republicans in hot races: Florida (Ron DeSantis), Ohio (Mike Dewine).  Additionally, Georgia (Brian Kemp), South Dakota (Kristi Noem) looks good.  Disappointing results in Kansas (Kobach loss).

    Trump winning the Presidency was the ‘easy’ part. People here should have known the System, Uniparty, the Swamp, whatever one wants to call it was NOT going to just roll over. There are just too many individuals/groups invested within a political structure built up over decades that dictates social and financial winners and losers. It is human nature to want something for nothing or nearly nothing. As long as the ‘system’s’ leaders promise such rewards for the opportunity of control one shouldn’t be surprised at the results of yesterday’s election, with an electoral abboration thrown in on occasion. I unfortunately still look at the 2 party system as a spoils system with one participant a little less egregious than the other. Trump inserted a little ‘speed bump’ in the political conga line but the reality is that trillions are in play and the players are SERIOUS about maintaining the sysyem’s status quo. I am amazed at what the President has been able to accomplish with the resistance he has/is encountering but not surprised one bit at that resistance. The work of change is in its infancy and hopefully will be allowed to mature…..but the fight is going to be metaphorically and physically ‘bloody’. IMH 65 years of life Opinion.

      Some of the most cogent and astute points every conservative should remember in this battle. America is the head of the global economy and there are trillions of dollars at stake managing our government. The system has been consciously gamed and designed for decades to prevent popular politicians like Trump from going against the long-term plan, even as president. The Republican Establishment running the House had no problem playing dead this election cycle to prevent Trump from getting more done on his agenda.

      I credit Trump with expanding the Overton Window beyond the mindless open borders policy established on both sides of the aisle. It comes right in time to get Americans at least thinking about national identity and the major immigration issues coming.

      The two-party system will start seeing cracks when the inevitable demographic changes turn more and more of America into California.

    The election now over we can look forward to the next chapter due in the pending Red Tsunami!

    President Trump and his team were successful in cleaning up the election side with as many incumbents did not run for re-election. If they did most of them would have been re-elected. President Trump to his credit chose to rather lose the house rather than to retake it which he could have done.
    However – here is the proof of the unassailable ethic of our president: He chose to cut lose the compromised, seditious and criminally corrupted republicans ergo retirements as sealed indictments are pending to drop. Ryan, Flake are just two out of many conspiring with the other side against the president.

    In the natural order of things it usually goes like this:
    First come the earth quake – then comes the after shock – then after that comes the tsunami!

    I know many are very disappointment losing the house to only have Pelosi, Schiff, Waters, Warner, Feinstein and the rest of the democrats back in the driver seat.
    God works based on His own plan that more often than not is not what we hope for. That does not mean to disappoint or give up. We are facing rough waters ahead but if we have faith in God we also mush be faithful to His Ways:

    The earthquake took place yesterday as the midterm election was underway. As @Sundance mentioned the gaslighting by the media, Fox News pre-declaration of D-wins in CA while the voting was still underway and host of others lies across the country in favor of the left was as predictable as the sun shines bright this morning in California.

    Across the country the overwhelming problems voters had were voting machines: In TX voters saw their votes flipped right before their eyes, the undercover Veritas recording in TX of dreamers (illegals) being registered to vote and having DL despite not being citizens, hacking attempts in GA into the voter rolls, illegals voting in CA and other malfunctions while 5 states have more voters than adults living in each state led by California by 1,78 million.
    Based on early voting numbers as reported by each state republicans led by wide margins across the board. New registration also favored republicans.

    As Fox called CA for the “D” people were still lined up to vote. Some registrars were contacted by voters only to find out that boxes of votes received had not been counted yet even after the polls were closed. Other states strangely were nail biters and too close to call. Scott and Nelson in FL are now in a re-count while Abrams in GA refuses to concede despite Kemp winning by 100,000 votes. On and on it goes.

    In the meantime president Trump and his team together with the DA, the NSA, Homeland security and Q-team via the lawful FISA observed the whole ball of wax what is considered ‘electronic vote flipping’ aka stealing electronic votes and of course the long known illegal voter fraud. It’s documented – it will be made public. There will be consequences!

    It’s the day after and this is where we are: Chairman Nunes has 2 months to drop the hammer on Schiff and the rest of gang regarding the declassification of FISA docs regarding Carter Page, Gen Mike Flynn, Manafort and Papa’d.

    President Trump has already signed the EO to declassify. The AF1 flight with RR in tow was a means to let ‘this enemy’ feel to remain in control together with Mueller. These two intentionally blocked everything in favor of the D’s and the midterms.

    OIG Horowitz evaluated the FISA docs to assure not to compromise Huber’s sealed indictment against those who signed the 4 different FISA apps and their conspirators in media, congress and others. We also were told yesterday that both Podesta brothers have indictments awaiting them! 🙂
    Q and team told us yesterday that Papa was brought into the light by the them to shine the light back at Mueller and the rest who silenced him ergo his great interview laying it all out on the table during the interview with Dan B..

    This FISA will bring down the house!! Indictments will be made public involving a large number of the democrats in the house, media incl Hussein, Schiff, Feinstein, Warner, HRC, Lynch, Kerry, Brennan, Clapper and countless others.

    In other words the small blue ripple wave giving the Pelosi clan the majority will end up opening up countless seats needing filling in a special election. Indictments of voter fraud and FISA docs will bring down the democratic house together with the Hussein white house.

    That will sweep in the Red Tsunami!

    Look for the day 11.11 – the same day president Trump meets with president Putin in France – for drastic actions by our military and Feds arresting a many democrats and their agents in media et al.

    Remember that day: 11.11! – – – God works in mysterious way and chooses His timing. As a result a Red Tsunami will ensue before the new congress begins! 🙂

    God always wins!! 🙂

      cali, thank God for Trump and the wicked shall be found and punished hopefully by a walk to the gallows! Yes, we are disappointed but you have revived our spirits to remember why God sent us Trump, who is way smarter and works weeks to months ahead to drop the hammer. They think they have won the House and then find they have lost it all! Praise God! As an ongoing bilingual election clerk in CA, I was asked to help a Mexican woman to understand how to vote and then I saw she had a list given to her with a long list of nothing but democrats. Now, we need a law that in order to vote you must, speak, read and write our English language or you will not be permitted to vote as you have no clue for whom to really vote for in any election. She thought voting was great for her while all the while she was helping communism! Pitiful. Was she paid or given a gift? I don’t know but I do know she knew nothing and should have been allowed to vote. Most latinos I know voted republican and don’t want illegals here or allowed in at any of our borders on the West Coast nor in East Coast ports. I know many people I know or bumped into were going to vote RED, illegality always in CA brought back detritus in Congress and this state. And yes, I do hope 11.11 will be a grand opening of the garbage container. A quick military court and then marched off to the gallows with no stop anywhere here or GITMO as why waste our money in caring for traitors when real just takes place IMMEDIATELY. My prayers will continue even while my tears fall.

    The biggest attack ad never shown would have been the perp walks, arraignments, hearings, etc. which should have ensued months ago. I am – like many – perplexed as to why this did not occur prior to the midterm elections, since the time delay is only reinforcing narratives that there is no corruption. Instead the details were teased out slowly, but without the necessary legal process being invoked. The only investigation running with sharp teeth and headlong determination is the Mueller investigation. It is long past time to clean house at DOJ, FISA court system and FBI. Our President cannot let the massive, clearly visible corruption at those institutions go unchecked. Justice must be served. If Jeff Sessions is not getting it done, he must go, and quickly. If Huber is not getting it done, he must go, and quickly. Trump has the Senate votes to approve his AG nomination. That nominee must relieve Rosenstein of duty, then call in Mr. Mueller for a chat. The Mueller charade must end and quickly. If these things don’t start happening on the heels of the loss of the House by the Republicans, I have to start entertaining real doubts about what is going on at the White House. I understand the focus on righting the economic ship, an immense job, but not at the price of ignoring fundamental problems in our government. Real justice is blind to party affiliation, or the outcome of elections, and that must be the standard to which we must unflinchingly adhere.

      Ned Zeppelin, it helps to remember Trump is the boss and these creatures have fallen into the hole and will pay big time. They are liars, cheats, vote buyers, and any other nasty thing that can be said for them. However, we did capture the Senate so the House’s crap will be met and dead. God speed their being taken down piece by piece. Time to get rid of the RINOS and GOPe who helped losing the House. So proud that many states did come through with cleansing up that state. I truly hope all our service men and women got their ballots timely and will be counted which will also make a change. Nevertheless, we need a regulation/law that you may be an American citizen but unless you can read, write and speak English you cannot vote because they are being caught and found to be taught to vote democrats for lack of not being able to properly read, speak (if at all in English), and write in our English language. It is disgusting you want what we have and then too ignorant to vote for it to continue.

    Nothing illegal about it, it’s called “chain migration”. Somehow these newcomers can afford to buy houses and SUVs, while the local young people struggle to make the rent, even with roommates.
    We are overtaxed already, yet our schools have to absorb an influx of students who must receive textbooks, etc. in the language of the country they came from.
    These people are NOT going to vote for someone who wants to put and end to all the free stuff.
    We have Americans living on the streets, yet we import people to go straight to public housing, and remain there.

They only in general want to live on our welfare, which thanks to Trump will be removing them and billions saved. ICE with more of them deporting aliens and families for the crime of being here illegally and not for criminal activity. The crime is already committed if they are here illegally. We must remember we own the Senate and make sure they support America and not big bucks. Lobbyists must no longer be allowed and that will stop the outsider money to ruin our country. After reading many today, I am now comforted that I felt weak for a few hours, but am now back on track and working with Trump to rid our soil of non-Americans in Congress and in local legislatures.

Government workers, tech workers, union bosses, etc. will keep voting Democrat because it is in their best selfish childish interest.

        Im all for Trump but he didnt deliver on his two core promises when he HAD the majority in both houses. He cant do anything with less.

        Given that the Europeans and Chinese were told to ignore Trump until the midterms when the dems would retake the house, what deals will be done now? Two more years and Trump will be done. They can wait, obfuscate and take a few hits knowing that in two years they are all back in business.

Espy’s been a Mississippi rep and was Clinton’s Secretary of Agriculture from ’93 to ’94 when he…left the position. The Rats are going to shovel money into this race-race (he’s black) as they need to get the black vote out there. Hyde-Smith’s Republican opponent gathered 16.4% of the vote and she’s going to have to vaccuum up a good chunk of that. She had 41.5% of the vote while Espy had 40.6 (his opponent got 1.4%).

    That sounds like a Hyde-Smith win BUT that depends on getting out that Republican vote and voters are notoriously reluctant to get out a 2nd time so close to the 1st…especially right after Thanksgiving. This is going to depend on who gets out the voters and with Espy running and the Senate in the balance I’m betting the Rats will be providing buses, taxis and Uber to get those feet to the polls.

    I’m always an optimist, even now, but to continue our fight against the godless atheistic amoral and immoral blue tide, we need to start reversing certain trends now.

    Our education system has gone far Left – we need a dramatic reversal now.

    Our “separation of church and state” has gone from the Constitutional edict to not require a religious test for office, to a complete denial of God and the traditional Commandments in all offices of government from federal to state to local.

    Our storage and dispensing of baby body parts from the abortion industry is an affront to our Creator, and needs to be stopped now.

    The defacto national media that the majority of Americans watch and read has become the propaganda arm of the Left and their Internationalist Socialist sponsors. That must be replaced sooner than later, or we are doomed.

    The entertainment industry, which reaches everyone including children down to pre-teens, baits our children with hardcore pornography and demonic imagery, right through their cell phones. That must be stopped soon.

    The Democrats, with their dubious victory in the House of Representatives, has been empowered (in their view) to step up their destruction of the American Way of life, and you can hear it in Nancy Pelosi’s voice when she said “Our investigations from this day forward will be conducted in earnest.

While house tanked. It shows USA is divided more than I though and it has gone far left and when the indictments do happen I expect the media to be successful in protecting the image POTUS is a dictator and I expect greater unrest now.

I didn’t notice Herr Mule taking 2 years to get people under indictment (with lousy process crimes to boot, nothing of substance), and he has a much smaller budget. Sorry, no excuse this didn’t happen, other than Sessions being in the way – add his boy Rodney to the mix and now you know why it didn’t happen.

Sessions’ inaction is unforgivable. That is at least a conclusion based on the evidence. I would have thought Sessions would stay if he were really up to something behind the scenes. His resignation tells me otherwise. Now you have to wonder about Huber too. Rodney has to go too, and in lameduck mode there’s not much time to clean house. Ignore the Lamestream media, Schumer and the rest and let’s get this done.

    I was morbidly fascinated – both last night when she gave her stump speech for speaker and when she reprised it almost word for word today – that she is 100% for healthcare. The Affordable Care Act. The awful bill that she told the House to vote for; they could find out what was in it later. They did. We did. It was dreadful. And gets worse with each passing day. But this was her Big Deal so she clings to it mindlessly. Interesting times.

    Just noticed they are now saying Tester won. So narrowly in sparsely populated Montana that, if the Libertarian Breckenridge who dropped out and threw his votes to the Rosendale had done so earlier, the 13,000+ early votes cast for him would have gone to Rosendale and put him over the top.

    Re Sessions’s retirement,

    President Trump announced Wednesday that Jeff Sessions had resigned as attorney general and will be replaced by Matthew Whitaker, who had been Sessions’ chief of staff at the Justice Department. Whitaker will also replace Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

    Rosenstein relieved of his Mueller oversight duties. Ta-dah. No more deputy acting attorney general…

      This is excellent news. “Mr. Huber: you have an urgent call on line 2, it’s a Mr. Whitaker, says it’s important, something about a reassignment.”

    A gem a of a line that should be taught to everyone coming of voting age. (4th paragraph)
    >> On Tuesday, when the Pahrump Valley Times asked readers if they had voted for Hof or Romanov, one Facebook commenter responded that he had voted for Hof because “a dead Republican beats a female Democrat any day.” <<

    (apologies if someone else already posted it)
