7 strange takeaways from Trumps campaign rally for Luther Strange

President Donald Trump traveled to Alabama Friday night to help Luther Strange win the Republican nomination for Senate in the runoff vote Tuesday. Or did he?

We know he was there. Anyone with a television knew he was there because it was picked up nationally for some reason. That’s the magnetism of Trump; only he can make national news out of a primary runoff for a nomination. Hearing this, one might believe Strange is certain to win, but he still trails Roy Moore by a good margin.

The strange thing about it was that this was as much about Trump as it was about Strange. In fact, he talked a lot more about himself and various situations pertaining to him than he did about the candidate he traveled to support. The guy loves campaigning to friendly crowds, doesn’t he?

Here are the seven takeaways from the event:

He might have made a mistake backing Strange

The Russia scandal is a hoax

Trump: ‘Russia did not help me’ win in 2016

Luther Strange, a Republican competing for the GOP nomination for Senate in a runoff scheduled for Tuesday.

It’s being made pristine, perfect, just as good as new, though we may go a little higher than that, but that’s okay. And we are building samples of a new wall. You know it has to be a see-through wall,” Trump said.

He’s never met them.”

Bush, and Barack Obama — should have dealt with the North Korea threat before it got to this point. Trump has also called out Hillary Clinton in response to her criticisms of his North Korea policy, accusing her of failing to act as Secretary of State while North Korea developed nuclear weapons.

Israel appoints first Christian ambassador

Most appointed bureaucrats and representatives in Israel are Jewish. Cultural diversity has been on the rise in the Jewish state and is starting to be reflected in government as they appointed their first Christian Arab ambassador.

George Deek will soon be Israel’s ambassador to Azerbaijan. It is an important relationship for Israel as the Muslim majority nation is one of Israel’s largest arms markets. They also supply about 40% of Israel’s oil.

“We are proud of his appointment, which perfectly symbolizes the integration of Israelis from different backgrounds in the representation of the state,” said Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon.

Deek is currently a senior adviser to Director-General Yuval Rotem. His diplomatic experience is wide with stints serving the ministry in Norway and Nigeria.

Joni Ernst warns of challenges to push President Trump’s agenda after losing the House

Joni Ernst warns of challenges to push President Trumps agenda after losing the House

Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA), the newly elected Republican Senate Conference vice chairman, pointed out two things that are going to be big challenges over the next two years: border security and making the tax cuts permanent. Both centerpieces of President Trump’s agenda will be difficult to achieve now that Democrats control the House of Representatives.

Republicans were able to get the tax cuts they wanted, but without control of the House it will be nearly impossible to make them permanent in the next two years.

They were unable to get border security pushed forward in the first two years of the administration despite having control of the House and the Senate during that stretch. Most notably, they failed to make significant progress towards building a border wall between Mexico and the United States.

With Democrats controlling the House, getting it done now will be nearly impossible.

My Take

It’s indefensible that Republicans didn’t do more for border security when they had the chance. Two years is plenty of time to push through legislation, but their focus on three failed Obamacare repeals drew their attention away.

Don’t get me wrong. Obamacare repeal is extremely important and arguably the reason they were able to win in 2010-2016. But it’s failure is no excuse for delaying border security measures. Now, they’re delayed indefinitely.

In those rare periods when a party controls the House, Senate, and White House, they need to pack all the legislation they believe America needs. Republicans ignored the border and now Americans will pay the price.

Florida update: Rick Scott almost certain to win

Florida update Rick Scott almost certain to win

By now, Rick Scott should be transitioning into the Senate and Bill Nelson should be looking for a new job. Instead, we’re having to wait a few more days until it all gets sorted out in the election-challenged state of Florida.

The good news for Scott, the current Republican governor, is that when the dust settles, he will be declared the winner.

Over 4,000 ballots are in bad-signature limbo, meaning they are currently being rejected over signatures that do not match what’s on record in 45 Florida county election offices. No word on how many ballots were rejected in the 22 other Florida counties.

Currently, Nelson trails Scott by around 12,500 votes.

With half a dozen lawsuits crossing the state over every voting issue imaginable right now, there will be legal proceedings that go well beyond the election’s final results. As it stands now, we won’t get those final results until a manual recount. The state’s threshold following a machine recount is .25%. Scott’s lead is currently at .14%.

My Take

It’s better to get elections results right than to get them swiftly. Both sides have used legal maneuvers to promote their causes, and while this can be an annoyance to voters while forcing the rest of the nation to collectively scratch our heads, it’s imperative that they see this all the way through to the end.

Republicans are wrong to be in a hurry to certify results because in such a close race, we as Americans should hope every valid vote is counted and every invalid vote is rejected. They’re in a hurry because there’s nothing to gain for the party by prolonging a race they’ve won. It’s understandable, but misguided.

Democrats are wrong on multiple levels. First, it’s becoming more and more clear that someone, whether it be election officials like Brenda Snipes, secret groups with ballot access trying to cheat, or a combination of the two, is trying to tip the scales in favor of Democrats. Second, some of their delay techniques and legal maneuvers won’t do anything to change the election results but are intended to taint the GOP wins. Third, their attacks through the media on Republicans, including Scott and governor-elect Ron DeSantis, have been unnecessarily brutal.

While it’s very likely Rick Scott will be declared the winner… someday… this latest series of incidents highlights two things: Florida’s election incompetence and forces working on behalf of Democrats to steal elections any way they can.
