Special elections indicate a Blue Tsunami and Trumps impeachment are coming

For those who refuse to accept the likelihood that Donald Trump will be impeached following the November elections after the Democrats retake the House, a new report released yesterday isn’t going to be very comforting.

Sure, Donald Trump is predicting a Red Wave and bragging about his so-called successes in places like Ohio-12—the special election between Republican Troy Balderson and Democrat Danny O’Connor is still too close to call—but a look at the hard data behind this season’s special elections shows that Democrats stand a better than 50/50 chance of retaking the House in November, and doing so convincingly.

The non-partisan Cook Political Report said yesterday that Democrats have outperformed expectations in 9 House Special Elections this cycle by an average of 8 percent.

To get an idea on what that could look like in November, if Democrats performed at that level in all 435 Congressional districts, they’d pick up 81 House seats. Of course, as David Wasserman, Cook’s analyst on House races, points out, that’s not likely to happen because not every district is a toss-up, thanks to the power of incumbency.

However, Democrats only need 23 seats to retake the House, and since 37 Republicans are choosing not to seek re-election, there are enough open seats to make incumbency irrelevant.

In an article I wrote in February, I documented how special elections at the state level painted a gloomy picture for the GOP this election season. After a string of Democrat victories since November 2016, House Speaker Paul Ryan reached the same conclusion, and it’s only grown worse since February.

The reasons the Republicans face a Blue Tsunami are plain for all to see. Besides the usual midterm struggles experienced by the party occupying the White House, Trump and the GOP have broken nearly every promise they made to conservatives when they begged us to give them control of Washington, such as: repealing Obamacare, defunding Planned Parenthood, controlling spending, and fixing immigration.

To make matters worse, Trump continues to carry historically low job-approval numbers, and his Twitter rants, trade war, and weak moral character only serve to drive them lower.

In a nutshell, the Republicans have betrayed conservatives and our values, giving voters no reason to show up and support them at the polls. When you take this reality and add it to a fired-up Democrat party dedicated to retaking the House and impeaching Trump, the outcome in November is inevitable.

The real reason Scott Wallace yelled ‘f*** off’ in a synagogue during a debate

The real reason Scott Wallace yelled f off in a synagogue during a debate

Democrats have been claiming every Republican in the nation wants to eliminate the pre-existing conditions requirement in health care laws. It doesn’t matter whether they actually do or don’t (most do not). Public polling shows if you can convince voters the Republican candidate is going to take away their healthcare, it’s a winning message.

Scott Wallace, a Democratic candidate for the House of Representatives in Pennsylvania’s 1st district, has been participating in spreading the leftist lies about healthcare. Specifically, he’s been running ads claiming Representative Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) attempted to vote down the pre-existing conditions clause.

He didn’t. Even left-leaning Washington Post had to acknowledge that Wallace’s claims were a lie, giving him four Pinocchios for the outrageous claim.

Democratic attack ad falsely knocks Republican on preexisting conditions

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2018/10/15/democratic-attack-ad-falsely-knocks-republican-preexisting-conditions/The DCCC really crosses the line here. Fitzpatrick bucked his party to vote against one of the president’s top priorities, the repeal of Obamacare, specifically because he was concerned about the impact on people with preexisting conditions. His reward? Being attacked for selling his constituents out on the issue because of his minor procedural votes, when just about every member of Congress sticks to party lines.

The vote that really counted on preexisting conditions was the tough one — on the proposed law itself. You would think the Democrats would at least applaud him for his courage, but apparently that’s not how the game is played these days. The DCCC earns Four Pinocchios.

When Fitzpatrick tried to question Wallace about the blatantly false ad and the continued claims by his campaign that Fitzpatrick tried to vote down pre-existing conditions, Wallace erupted. In the middle of debate. In a synagogue.

Dem Congressional Candidate Tells Republican Opponent To ‘F*** off’ During Debate

https://freebeacon.com/politics/dem-congressional-candidate-tells-republican-opponent-f-off-during-debate/Scott Wallace, a Democratic congressional candidate in Pennsylvania, lost his composure and told his Republican opponent to “Fuck off” during a debate on Sunday. Wallace, who is running against Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R., Pa.), unleashed the expletive during an event at Congregation Tifereth Israel in Bensalem, Pennsylvania.

The candidates were standing on the synagogue’s bimah, an elevated platform used for reading the Torah during services, when Wallace made the remark, according to WBCB News. The outburst silenced the room and left Fitzpatrick “stunned.”

My Take

Wallace is a proud man who doesn’t like the fact that his entire campaign is built around a blatant lie. How would you feel if you had to destroy another person’s reputation by pretending they did something they did not do? His frustration over the lies his campaign is built upon are the real reason his frustration came out.

Wallace realizes he cannot win based on his ideologies or his accomplishments. His only path to victory is by continuing to lie in hopes the people of Pennsylvania are as stupid as he thinks they are.

Voters in Pennsylvania need to get this unhinged guy as far away from weapons, synagogues, and political office as possible. He’s a liar and a loose cannon. Keep Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick in there to continue working for the state and the nation.

Beto O’Rourke’s accomplishments through the eyes of his educated supporters

Beto ORourkes accomplishments through the eyes of his educated supporters

Texas A&M is one of the most prestigious universities in the state. Its criteria for entry are stricter than other state schools and it has built a reputation of churning out some of the brightest minds in the Longhorn State.

They love their football, steaks, and politicians. Many of them love Beto O’Rourke.

Unfortunately, they don’t really know why they like him.

He’s charming, attractive, funny, and down to earth. He’s inclusive. They can gather all of this information from his smile and his political party. Beyond that, they seem to know very little about the Senate candidate. They definitely don’t know much about what he’s done in his adult life, the majority of which has been in politics.

This video by Campus Reform yields predictable responses. We have grown accustomed to the brightest minds of our future, particularly those on the left, knowing next to nothing about the people who “lead” our nation.

What’s at stake: Nancy ‘Slippery Slope’ Pelosi wants to control your property

What's at stake: Nancy ‘Slippery Slope’ Pelosi wants to control your property

Mrs. Hope for a slippery slope has promised the critical step to gun confiscation – Intergalactic Background Checks [Universal, Enhanced, etc.]

Anyone paying attention to the Left’s ongoing war on Liberty should take notice of the Red flag Nancy ‘Slippery slope’ Pelosi just ran up the pole. She stated that so-called universal background checks would be among Democrats’ top priorities if the party wins control of the House in the midterm elections. These are in essence, government controls over property, despite the emptional spin placed on them.

Government Control of property has no Constitutional Justification.

For starters, the national socialist Left doesn’t have the authority to control private property in this way, referring to the words of the 10th amendment:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Try as we might, we couldn’t find the words ‘Government Control of Property’ in the founding documents. In point of fact, the opposite is quite the case. Even if it’s an item the Left considers to be ‘scary’ or dangerous.

Then consider this portion of the 5th amendment:

“nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”

A requirement for one to get government permission to exchange one’s possessions would in effect set the government as the owner of that property. This in effect would constitute one being deprived of that property – this being explicitly prohibited by the founding documents.

Still further, consider the spirit of the 4th amendment:

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

A requirement for governmental permission for any type of exchange of property would most assuredly violate the 4th amendment. Again, control of property directly equates to ownership of said property. Government controls with Intergalactic Background Checks [Universal, Enhanced, etc.] would be ownership of said property.

Presumption of Innocence.

Then of course the reason that a strict government requirement of this type would presume that someone is guilty of being some sort of miscreant in the eyes of the Left [Being a gun owner and all..] So one would have to prove that isn’t the case before exercising a basic human and Constitutional right.

Finally of course, this would also violate the 2nd amendment.

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

It should be logically easy to see that requiring government permission to exercise a Constitutional right would be an infringement of it. In many ways, Intergalactic Background Checks [Universal, Enhanced, etc.] could take the record for the most violations of the people’s Constitution rights to date.

The Precursor to Confiscation.

We’ve already proven that the national socialist Left desperately wants to ban and confiscate guns. There have been over 70 different instances in the past few years where they have openly made this demand.

This should readily explain to everyone why they obsess over a step that will do nothing for security, but everything for control over our Liberty. Their Holy Grail is to be able to send a threatening letter to every gun owner [or supposed gun owner] demanding that they turn them over for destruction.

Incremental Liberty Control.

A few years ago when the Liberty grabbers felt they had the wind at their back, with that mindset they were open and honest about how they would go about banning and confiscating guns.

First off they talked about it’s not being an overnight process as being a good thing since incrementalism is key. A massive change would mean non-compliance, so a ‘Progressive’ approach would put in place the means for confiscation over time, beginning with: Intergalactic Background Checks [Universal, Enhanced, etc.]

They began with a call for a national registry – they need to know who owns the guns and where they are, then:

Along with this, make private sales illegal. When a firearm is transferred, make it law that the registration must be updated. Again, make it super easy to do. Perhaps over, the internet. Dealers can log in by their FFLs and update the registration. Additionally, new guns are to be registered by the manufacturer. The object here is to create a clear paper trail from factory to distributor to dealer to owner. We want to encourage as much voluntary compliance as possible.

So the process of registration for gun confiscation starts with making ‘private sales illegal’. Yes, in a nation that values property rights, they want to make it illegal for one to exercise those rights.

Now we get down to it. The registration period has passed. Now we have criminals without registered guns running around. Probably kooky types that “lost” them on a boat or something. So remember those ATF form 4473s? Those record every firearm sale, going back twenty years. And those have to be surrendered to the ATF on demand. So, we get those logbooks, and cross reference the names and addresses with the new national registry. Since most NRA types own two or (many) more guns, we can get an idea of who properly registered their guns and who didn’t. For example, if we have a guy who purchased 6 guns over the course of 10 years, but only registered two of them, that raises a red flag.

Interesting that they use the phrase Red flag’. Now after they have their lists of gun owners they start cracking down on gun owners, raiding those who don’t comply with their edicts.

So registration is the first step. Now that the vast majority are registered, we can do what we will. One good first step would be to close the registry to new registrations. This would, in effect, prevent new guns from being made or imported.

‘we can do what we will’ isn’t that just lovely? This from people who want the law enforcement to raid anyone who may have a few guns.

The Takeaway.

Everyone should be mindful of two very important points in all of this. Intergalactic Background Checks [Universal, Enhanced, etc.] will do nothing to solve a problem caused by the nation’s Socialist-Left in the first place – the destruction of the family and moral underpinnings. But whether it solves the problem is irrelevant to the Left, It is but one crucial step to their final solution to the gun problem.

Those unfamiliar with this issue may wonder why the Liberty grabbers tend to obsess over this one item in their agenda over all others. It should be obvious that this sets them on the road to registration and then confiscation.
