Blue wave looking weak in Pennsylvania special election

Published

on

Comparable to the Arizona Special Election that is to take next week, the Pennsylvania 18th district is in a special election situation because of unacceptable behavior of Rep. Tim Murphy who during an extramarital affair reportedly asked his mistress to get an abortion. The Republicans have handily controlled PA18 for years and don’t want Murphy’s buffoonery to mess things up. The Republican champion in this race is Rick Saccone.  An open seat in a northern state presents a great opportunity for Democrats to cash in on the Blue Wave they keep boasting. The victory of Doug Jones provides a road win Democrats have so far lacked since 2016. Looking to be PA18’s Doug Jones is Conor Lamb. Lamb is an assistant US attorney who served in the Marine Corps. His platform emphasizes healthcare related issues as well as student debt and energy.

Who is Rick Saccone?

The House of Representatives would be a promotion for the current State Rep. However, Rick Saccone hardly has an active record in the PA legislature. For the most part, Saccone has a record of sponsoring lighthearted, if not outright nonsensical bills, such as a resolution appreciating Heinz Ward and Juneteenth. In the legislature, he has a record of voting in favor of guns and unborn. However, Rick Saccone is not a limited government conservative on a local level. In the past he has voted for tax increases.

State of the Race

As of now, all of the recent polling has the 18th district reliably in the GOP’s hands. However, polling in 2018 will likely continue its downward trend of effectiveness. So take it with a grain of salt. The endorsements are piling high for Rick Saccone. He has the thumbs up from both Trump and Pence, along with several conservative organizations. The recent polling is perhaps responsible for what seems like the Democrats capping their support for Lamb. The GOP, on the contrary, is throwing heavy cash on keeping a seat where Tim Murphy ran unopposed in 2016.

Rating: Likely Republican

My Take

Rick Saccone will in my mind comes away as the winner on March 13th. However, he is not nearly suitable for the job as he should be. He legislative record is one of recognizing days of the year as special for a person or group. He does not have a record of sponsoring serious conservative legislation. Though he does have a record of voting conservative, he isn’t a leader on the issues he is campaigning on. The GOP is right to break the bank for his campaign as they aren’t short on cash in this moment. Saccone isn’t a strong candidate in my opinion, but, with some bankroll, he is.

Conor Lamb isn’t a weak candidate but doesn’t have the resources. As for the Democrats, this investment looks like its going sour. Special elections present a time for more eggs to be placed in a single basket. But the Democrats seem to know they are unlikely to win. The Senate races of 2018 looks bleak for them, so the Blue Wave is supposed to take or come close to securing the House of Representatives. In order to do that, they need road wins. Just like the Arizona 8th, this will not be that road win. The crest of the Blue Wave is getting shorter and shorter.

Which Democratic candidates denounced Antifa? Some didn’t know who they were.

Which Democratic candidates denounced Antifa Some didnt know who they were

Antifa is a domestic terrorist organization that spreads violence and vitriol to otherwise peaceful events. When they have their own events, they get even more violent and spew even more vitriol. President Trump has denounced them unambiguously to the point of threatening to declare them an official terrorist organization. What do Democratic candidates for President think?

The folks at Turning Point USA are often too kind. They granted checkmarks to candidates who generally denounced hate, which is a cop-out response to a very specific question. But so be it. If they thought Jay Inslee, Joe Biden, Andrew Yang, and John Delaney’s generalized opposition to violence qualified as denouncing Antifa, it’s their video and their team’s effort that was put into tracking down the answers. Tulsi Gabbard gave the only non-generalized response saying, “I have denounced Antifa.”

Arguably the most concerning aspect of the video was seeing how many candidates needed to be told who Antifa even is. It’s not quite as egregious as Gary “What’s Aleppo” Johnson’s lack of awareness in the 2016 election, but anyone running for President of the United States should have acute awareness of the violence committed by Antifa, especially considering all of them love to condemn violence that comes from the right.

This is guaranteed: If President Trump had given any answer other than Gabbard’s in response to the same question about a white supremacist group, the press would have been relentless in their accusations of his implied support. Where’s the media calling out Julian Castro for replying to the question with “thanks”? Why aren’t journalists hounding Bernie Sanders for pretending he didn’t hear the question? Shouldn’t tough guy Cory Booker be held to account for his unwillingness to denounce the group when asked a direct question about them?

The truth is Democrats don’t really dislike Antifa. Some of them quietly support them. And that means mainstream media’s walking orders are to avoid discussing Antifa at all costs. They only make the news when they can be portrayed as a counter-movement against white supremacist groups.

By progressive standards, nearly all of the 2020 candidates support domestic terrorist group Antifa with their unwillingness to directly denounce them. Thanks to Lauryn Gray and TPUSA for bringing this information to light.

Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib: The anti-Semitic intellectual terrorists in Congress

Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib The anti-Semitic intellectual terrorists in Congress

The constitutional republic that our founding fathers envisioned was as close to being perfect as any man-made system in history. But its effectiveness was predicated on the idea that Americans would be active participants in governing. It takes sober, cognizant American voters to hold our representatives accountable. We must be aware of who we put in office and what they’re doing for – or against – the people and the nation.

But that’s not happening enough in America when it comes to Congress, at least not to the degree that it should. Instead, we have tribal warfare going on between the two major political parties which enables people to sit back and stop paying attention. All they know is they’re going to vote blue or red. Many have no idea who they’re actually voting for when they go to the ballot. They simply look for the letters (D) or (R) next to a candidate’s name.

If there’s anywhere that this practice needs to be reversed immediately, it’s in Michigan’s 13th District and Minnesota’s 5th District. These are the places that voted for Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar. It’s understandable as they’re reliable Democratic strongholds, but at the very least they need to get people who don’t hate America to run as Democrats against them. Getting them to vote for the Republicans would be nice, but even sane Democrats are better than these two clowns.

Their latest foray into the realm of complete disregard for the truth happened today at a press conference in which the dynamic duo systematically dismantled reality. Their lies were so thick and so obvious, it’s the type of publicity the representatives themselves hope their constituents don’t hear. Their targets weren’t their home districts that they’re serving so poorly. Their target were the rest of the nation and the nation of Israel. They want their hatred to be known as long as it doesn’t hurt them in 2020.

It’s time to make their constituents aware of the blind hatred and unhinged rhetoric coming from these two Congresswomen’s mouths.

Commentaries like this need to reach the masses, particularly the Congressional districts that voted for these representatives. This is why we push so hard for financial contributions to this site. Getting messages like this in front of the right people is imperative if we’re going to keep our republic. Your donations directly contribute to educating the people who need to hear this the most.

The best way to categorize people like Omar and Tlaib is as “intellectual terrorists.” That is in no way a jab at their religious beliefs; the phrase can be used against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie Sanders, David Axelrod, Saikat Chakrabarti, Tom Steyer, Michael Bloomberg, or anyone who essentially firebombs the truth for the sake of promoting their political agenda and pressing a false narrative.

Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.” The left is always talking about words being violent. If so, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar are clearly terrorizing America.

Here are some reactions to their tirade:

Can Lacy Johnson beat Ilhan Omar in Minneapolis?

Can Lacy Johnson beat Ilhan Omar in Minneapolis

Minneapolis is one of the bluest major cities in America. The race for the Democratic nomination for the MN-5 district is essentially the general election because Democrats have held the seat belonging to Minneapolis since 1963. The closest a Republican has come to winning the district in this century was Alan Fine in 2006 who “only” lost to Keith Ellison by 34.3%. Oftentimes, the Democrat wins by over 50 points.

But Republican Lacy Johnson seeks to make history. He’s not making the attempt by being a moderate RINO trying to coax the people of Minneapolis into believing he’s basically a Democrat. His platform is boldly conservative and includes a balanced budget amendment, school choice, and a bear-hug embrace of President Trump’s economic policies.

Growing up with nine siblings in modest circumstances didn’t make him feel poor. It did make him realize it’s his responsibility to support his family as an adult and not rely on government. This is exactly the type of mentality we need more of in Washington DC. It’s the kind of mentality that will serve Minneapolis well.

Under normal circumstances, even being a strong candidate isn’t enough in Minneapolis when you have the letter (R) next to your name on the ballot. But in 2020, Johnson has one major advantage that should give the GOP hope. He’s going up against Ilhan Omar, the “Squad” member who has been nothing but an embarrassment to herself, Minneapolis, and the United States of America. Despite accomplishing essentially nothing outside of Twitter in her brief tenure, she still walks the halls of Capitol Hill as if she’s a diva rockstar. That’s part of the charade her “Squad” members portray; they’re a shame even to Democrats but because they’ve gained nationwide popularity among radical progressives, they’ve been allowed to keep playing their games. For now.

But even as Omar struts around Capitol Hill, she’s ignoring the people who put her in office in the first place. To Omar, Minneapolis is merely a place where she’s forced to campaign. We can see this based on her actions; literally nothing she has done in DC has even come close to affecting Minneapolis residence. That’s uncanny, even for a Democrat.

The people of Minneapolis may finally vote red for two reasons: (1) Lacy Johnson is a winner with great ideas, and (2) Ilhan Omar has been nothing but an embarrassment, absent from Minneapolis since her election. President Trump should endorse him.
