3 tsunami-sized effects of the Republicans holding a House majority

There will be political, economic, and social shockwaves felt after Tuesday’s election. One might say that this is true every election, and it was definitely the case last election. But there’s more at stake with this particular election than any other midterm in recent history.

Analysts are singing in gleeful unison about how the Democrats are going to win control of the House of Representatives. Their chants of triumph are almost as loud as they were ahead of the last election when the same analysts gave Hillary Clinton even greater chances of winning the White House. We’re all aware how that turned out.

But this election isn’t as complicated as the last. Back then, it came down to getting the right people in the right states to vote. This time, it’s about making sure every Republican and right-leaning Independent votes in their individual House races. Unlike a presidential election where only votes in swing states have a significant impact on the results, this midterm means votes are important in a much wider range of districts. I couldn’t make an impact getting friends in California to vote in 2016, but I can definitely make an impact in this election. So can you.

There are always big issues that will be swayed by the results of the election, but there are three things the people may not be aware of that will be dramatically influenced. If the GOP can retain control of the House and Senate, these three things will happen:

Nancy Pelosi will be done

This election will determine whether or not Nancy Pelosi will have a seat at the table for the Democratic Party. If they win control of the House, she’s very likely to be Speaker of the House again.

If the Democrats do not win control, then she won’t just be relegated to House Minority Leader. She will be removed from that role altogether. She already faced challenges in the past when her leadership was questioned. If they don’t win, especially after she essentially guaranteed it, then her role as a leader in the party is done. She’ll just be a long-time outspoken representative who will probably get primaried in two years if she even runs again.

Mainstream media will be neutered

2016 was an awakening for mainstream media. It was the first election in which they didn’t even pretend to be unbiased. They were unabashedly against President Trump and weren’t shy about expressing their discontent when he won. Some raged. Some cried. It was a glitch in their matrix that they’re still trying to understand today.

If it happens again with Republicans retaining majorities in the House, Senate, and governorships, there will be a seismic upheaval in the way they go about their jobs. Some in the media will actually blame others in the media for causing this through their vitriolic style of reporting against anyone with a letter (R) next to their name.

If Democrats win a majority, mainstream media will feel vindicated. They’ll feel they did the right thing and helped contribute to the downfall of Republican representatives around the country. It will be an empowering moment for them, one that will drive them to push the limits even further heading into the 2020 election.

They need to be neutered. I’ll admit that of the three effects of a Republican victory on Tuesday, this is the one I crave the most.

The agenda moves forward

What most Americans don’t seem to understand is the effect the Congress has on a President’s ability to fulfill their agenda. It’s directly tied; there is either a symbiotic relationship or a contentious one between the White House and Capitol Hill. How that relationship manifests is determined by which party has control of both chambers of Congress.

President Trump can only move forward with his agenda if Republicans have control of both the House and the Senate. It’s that simple. He needs both. All a President can do is sign bills given to him by Congress. Those bills must make it through both chambers. When there’s gridlock, progress comes to a standstill.

Whether or not we will be building the wall, defunding Planned Parenthood, getting more tax cuts, improving job numbers, and fixing the healthcare system are all directly attributed to whether or not Republicans can retain control of both the House and Senate. Keeping the Senate will not be enough. President Trump needs both chambers.

We always hear how every election is “the most important election of our lifetimes.” I’m not going to use that scare tactic. However, any right-thinking American who doesn’t believe it’s important enough to vote this time is gravely mistaken.

Following a terrible week for Michael Avenatti, his law firm has been evicted over past due rent

Following a terrible week for Michael Avenatti his law firm has been evicted over past due rent

Things were looking pretty bad for attorney Michael Avenatti last week. He was arrested for domestic abuse, making him the laughing stock on social media venues that he prizes as his public relations arm. His star client, porn star Stormy Daniels, is reportedly reconsidering her association with her lawyer. That was last week. This week is starting off badly as well.

His law firm has been evicted from their Newport Beach, California office building for skipping out on four months rent totally $213,000.

Avenatti’s law firm evicted from California offices over unpaid $213G rent

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/avenattis-law-firm-evicted-from-california-offices-over-unpaid-213g-rentMichael Avenatti’s law firm was ordered to be evicted from its California offices over unpaid rent after the judge dismissed his attempt to block the eviction, the latest setback for the embattled lawyer who was arrested on domestic violence charges earlier this week.

His law firm – Eagan Avenatti – was sued after skipping four months of rent payments totaling over $213,000.

My Take

As I was saying even before this latest round of bad news, Michael Avenatti needs to take a long break from the public eye. Even the best spin doctors couldn’t salvage his reputation in the short term. If he hopes to someday emerge into the public spotlight that he craves, he’ll need to take a break from being in the news and get some solid ground underneath him.

Many leftists supported him in his quests to take down the President, block Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, launch a 2020 presidential run, and become a prominent face for the Democratic Party. It’s safe to say they backed the wrong horse.

Conspiracy Theory

Many Democrats support Mueller investigation without knowing what it’s about

“Trump stole the election!”

Two years and two elections ago, something happened that has Democrats scratching their heads even today. Hillary Clinton lost. She wasn’t supposed to lose. She was cheated some way, somehow.

This is what they hope to be proven by special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian influence in the 2016 elections. The problem is a majority of Democrats think the Russians did something that Mueller’s team isn’t even investigating because there’s absolutely no hint of a possibility that it could be true.

67% of Democrats believe “Russia tampered with vote tallies in order to get Donald Trump elected President.”

Let that sink in.

Robert Mueller Poll

If you believe Russia attempted to influence the elections by using social media and other venues to spread anti-Hillary rhetoric, you’re almost certainly correct. In fact, the Mueller investigation has assumed that to be true from the beginning. The question isn’t whether or not Russia tried to influence the elections in this way. It’s whether or not Americans helped them, in particular members of the Trump campaign.

What’s not being considered is whether or not Russia tampered with vote tallies. They did not. It’s not even a consideration in Mueller’s investigation, yet two-thirds of Democrats believe it to be true.

67% of Democrats can’t wait for Mueller to prove their theories correct even though he isn’t even investigating vote tally tampering at all. It’s reminiscent of the days after Obamacare was launched when Democrats asked, “Wait, it’s not free?”

Andrew Gillum concedes to Ron DeSantis in Florida gubernatorial race

It was arguably the most watched gubernatorial race in the nation this past midterm election season and it didn’t disappoint. It took a recount and multiple lawsuits to finish, but in the end Republican Ron DeSantis defeated Democrat Andrew Gillum.

The mayor of Jacksonville finally conceded for the second time today, nearly two weeks after election day. He already conceded once on election fight.

Andrew Gillum concedes in Florida governor’s race for second time

https://www.tallahassee.com/story/news/2018/11/17/andrew-gillum-concedes-florida-governors-race-second-time/2041301002/In a four-minute video posted live on Facebook, Mayor Gillum stood with his wife R. Jai, a Tallahassee park in the background and both dressed in Florida A&M University orange and green. Gillum first thanked his supporters. Then, he officially acknowledged Republican Ron DeSantis as the winner.

“R. Jai and I wanted to take a moment to congratulate Mr. DeSantis on becoming the next governor of the great state of Florida,” Gillum said in the video posted at about 5 p.m.

DeSantis Tweeted acknowledgement of the concession.

Florida is a bellwether for the 2020 presidential election. The closeness of the race and the apparent corruption in the state means both parties have a lot of work to do. The state needs to get their act together before then as well.
