So . . .GA6 and SC5 remain repub.
Okay. So what! In the last 7yrs the dems have lost well over a thousand seats across the board and now the GOP has control of BOTH the Senate and the HoR -- and now the WH. Yet, are we even close to REAL Obamacare repeal; or tax reform? No. Are we closer to REAL spending cuts or a Balanced Budget? Nuh-uh. How about the runaway costs of SocSec; any closer to any reform there? HAH!
So, excuse me for not popping the bubbly over the GA or SC "wins". I grade on actual legislative RESULTS - not merely on intentions. We get enough of that w/ the bullsh*t COMMON CORE education system.
That's my not-so-humble opinion!
It's too early to worry about an Oprah run. If she chooses to run Larry you made a good point. Oprah and Obama's are good friends however and that fact she [Oprah] my choose to cash in on.
Oprah to me is a smart cookie. She has amassed billions and along the way use of victimization narrative has helped her wealth building.
Wouldn't want to see a Oprah presidency, no please no.
This is both a symptom of the democrats trying to use a Trump like ascendancy and the fact they are lost tribal souls waiting for their democrat elites to serve more kool-aid.
Patricia, I think greatest goal of the progressives is to put a puppet of some ethnic ancestry, black, brown, they do not care, whoever they select will be a person of power - but, someone who can be controlled...
Pat, I agree that it's too eary to worry about an OW run. Imo, it's all riding on the Nov2018 results. And THAT will depend on what DT and the GOP on the Hill do from now till then.
And what the people NEED is a BIG supply of charcoal, and lighter fluid - to keep ALL their feet on fire! Including President Donald J Trump!
If DC senses that the people are somehow mellwing in any way they will take the easy (liberal) route. When I hear anyone from the "right" talk about "compromise" and "working TOGETHER" it ALWAYS means that the people, the States and the Constitution are about to get screwed BLUE yet again!
"From outside the uniparty", huh.
Hi, buddy. First, thanx for the new ConCon link and your kind words.
Now, do you really believe that the mighty media/DNC machine would ALLOW OW to run w/out its deadly grip? I-don't-think-so! Imo, what makes OW a serious contender is that 1. She's very likable; 2. Unlike Hillary, she's a genuine rags-to-riches story; 3. She's a very shrewed business person; and last but NOT least: She's a black woman.
But there's a double edged sword that could/would bring her down: the democrat platform. What actual policies would she bring to the table - that WOULDN'T set us (as individuals; as small business owners; or as a nation)? The left has NOTHING.
If the Oprah runs on the leftist machine's agenda of HATE TRUMP, racial and social class divide, SAVE OBAMACARE,protect DACA/ and full amnesty and take up Al Gore's "global warming" mantra to go after big oil and the coal industry...etc, etc, etc...she'll quickly find herself in trouble. Eepecially sonce all these things FAILED drastically under B Hussein O! And, as the economy continues strengthening and the black unemployment numbers continue going downwards - it's exactly what Trump could (actually, would have to) point out.
BUT - like Obama, OW would also lockin the majority of the black votes (effective) and those of white-female-snowflakes and radicals as well. Althouhh those would have ZERO effect on the election as they NEVER have voted anything but demcrat.
ONE MORE THING
"IF" Trump makes the same mistake that Reagan made back in the 80s by GIVING the dems EVERYTHING they want (i.e.: a "clean" DACA bill) and TRUSTING them to compromise by agreeing on funding the "wall" and repealing Chain Migration AFTER giving them ALL the left wanted . . . Well, does he really believe that he could STILL get away w/ "shooting someone on Fifth Avenue"? I seriously hope that his blind loyalists hold his feet to the fire over this and bringing back EARMARKS as well.
Once again, 2018 is all for the GOP...and Trump...to lose. If Trump falls inline w/ the GOP-swamp and hopes to get the media machine to "love" him...and stop calling him "crazy"...it's all already lost.
Insanity is where the same FAILED things repeatedly - always expecting a better outcome. .
ps: Here's a What If:
The Oprah reportedly got a million votes for Obama. What if OW's speech was a pre-endorsement speech for Michelle Obama and not herself. I believe the DNC would totally get behind that. At the very least it would likely make Hillary's head EXPLODE - even if it is OW!
reading today her place has mudslides, and see a victim picture with her in it included.
here's how I choose to see that -- God saw her testing the feasibility with all this media hype and decided she didn't have enough problems of her own. ß' }
So you watch One America News, huh. Excellent! Waaaay better than FNC. Actually no comparison imo. It's included w/ my cbl tv service along w/ The Blaze TV, Newsmax TV, and the American History Channel. Good stuff!
Please watch for a message from me...
probably a combination of a lot of things like my not researching any at all, and generally not having any interest in relying on the same ole behavior of expecting normal election politics to achieve anything positive... and a hundred other ways I'm not informing myself enough to have a qualified opinion...
but this New California thing feels a little different somehow.
Luis, you seem to be keeping yourself up to date... got any insight on whether this is thought through well and not just an emotional ploy for some media attention?? .. or I'm thinking I've seen others here say they are in California -- got any insight?
Hmmm...a "New CA". Sounds harmless enough, right? But, then again, so does Palestinian state existing..."peacefully"...alongside the nation of Israel. Today's liberals would never agree to live...peacefully...alongside a Constitutionally run CA free-state.
Prior to Israel becoming a soverign nation back in 1948, the land was totally occupied by the Palestinians who treated the land w/ abandon. It was barren. Theu had no interest in it, but they had no choice but to live there - because NONE of other established muslim nations even wanted them in their lands. The area only became coveted after it became a sovereign nation; as God had promised.
Imo, a "new" CA would flourysh [IF] it abides by the Constitution; and the people's "Socialist California Union" whatever would becime MORE morally barren as it is now becoming an economic desert.
These rabid leftists...like the Islamists...could or would NEVER simply agree to merely exist alongside "us". They'll destroy the whole country first. We're almost there now! Jmho.
tHE SKY IS FALLING...again!
Tis the season where the li'l chickensh*t democrats cry out how society as we know it WILL end catastrophically within hours -> IF the repubs don't save DACA and the 10s of MILLIONS of the other illegal aliens...CRIMINAS or otherwise.
What did the GOP actually lose after getting blamed for the NON gov't shutdown of 2013? The anser is NOTHING: ZERO! We actually GAINED the Senate majority in 2014. It's quite obvious now that the Dems only "care" about the VOTES that so called "comprehensive immigration" laws (or FULL amnesty) to those 10s of millions of NON citizens would bnirg them. Sorry, blacks! You are of NO USE to democrats any more. But, when you consider that unemployment among blacks only started coming DOWN during Trump's first year of Office - it's also quite obvious that the dems never genuinely cared about them in the first place.
Gov't "shut down"? HAH! That's as much of a lie as the "Affordable Care" Act.
Washington Oligarchs Kabuki theater continue to captivate the voting public audience with new exploding evidence on a daily basis.
Democracy governments believe it is in the publics best interest to hold the "deep state" investigations in the media to inform.
Current update ...
Loudy Gowdy is not satisfied with Comeys testimony. He declares in his recent media performance that he wants to bring Comey in for more questioning.
Comey, the brave man that he is, continues to fire off cryptic tweet amid media firestorm over new Strzok-page “Secret Society” text message bombshell.
After all the evidence presented publicly, you'd think Comey would be sh*ting in his pants.
Stay tuned for further updates.
