Antifa and the midterms

A president's party usually loses seats in Congress in a midterm election. Only once in the last 36 years has a president's party gained seats in both chambers of Congress, and that was in 2002 after 9/11. The three midterms since have been brutal. Democrats lost the House in 2010, and then the Senate in 2014. That was after Republicans lost both in 2006.

But Donald John Trump is president, which means political gravity no longer applies.

The politicians so screwed up the country that in desperation, the people brought in an outsider.

Just like Argentina, Brazil, Italy and other broken countries have over the years.

And the establishment has raised fake criminal charges against the outsider.

Just like Argentina, Brazil, Italy and other broken countries have over the years.

Does anyone truly believe that President Trump was elected because he paid off a hooker?

But President Trump hangs in there, and Democrats are overreaching.

Two polls by Rasmussen show Democrats are in trouble.

The first poll is its Generic Congressional Ballot, which asks people if they would vote for a Republican or a Democrat to Congress.

"For the first time in months, Democrats and Republicans are tied on the Rasmussen Reports Generic Congressional Ballot," Rasmussen reported.

"The latest telephone and online survey finds that 44% of Likely U.S. Voters would choose the Democratic candidate if the elections for Congress were held today. Another 44% would now opt for the Republican. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and eight percent (8%) are undecided."

The poll is an outlier at the moment. Real Clear Politics puts the average of the polls at 6.7%.

But there is evidence that Americans are fed up with the cry-babying by Democrats and their Never Trump frauds.

"The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 18% of Likely U.S. Voters share a favorable opinion of the Antifa protesters, with six percent (6%) who view them Very Favorably. That compares to 24% and eight percent (8%) respectively last September," Andrew West reported.

Communism -- and that is what Antifa is -- always loses in America when it goes anarchic.

  1. So there's 18% that believe Antifa is good. Where are these people? LA? Portland? I don't know anyone who likes them.

    1. Well, the (less than) intellectual left compose about 1/3 of the population. Antifa supporters are the younger slice from these, raised in government schools, never developed critical reasoning skills.

    2. Ex - I know some of those self-deemed intellectuals. The smugness they wallow in is disgusting. I am hoping to see that smugness wipes off their faces come November.

    3. I know a couple people in the Pittsburgh area who support them. They are engineers with government jobs whose political positions are glaringly contradictory.

  2. Back in the 90's Newt and his boys overreached when they impeached Bill Clinton for lying about getting a blow job. It cost the GOP seats in the 98 midterm and they lost TWO House Speakers in the fallout.

    1. Newt, clever as he often was, didn't realize/act on the fact that the Democrats could and did form a narrative: "It's just about sex" when it wasn't.

      It isn't working this time.

    2. If you actually read the fine print, impeachment was for lying under oath in a court of law AS A SITTING PRESIDENT. It was also for attempting to suborn perjury, you know having someone else lie under oath for you in court.

      It was uncooth for Bill to diddle Monica with a cigar or getting a blowjob from her while talking to foreign leaders, but not criminal nor impeachable.

      The media protected Dems and the Clintons then as they do now.

    3. True, but paying dividends as D's rallied to defend their guy in 1998, and now seen as hypocrites to be ignored in 2018. Trump is thus inoculated.

  3. With President Trump political gravity does indeed apply. In fact it is multiplied exponentially. He is a veritable black hole of massive political gravity, pulling everything into his orbit, through the black hole into the nth dimension, and back out again as something completely different than when it went in. - Elric

  4. This may not have to do so much with the mid-terms, but thought you might be interested. I was in Kanawha City this afternoon and took this picture... "Charleston, West Virginia, August 22, 2018... https://goo.gl/T3d27J

    1. Yes, it has a lot to do with the mid-term elections. Seen any Democrat things like this? Nope.

      It appears that President Trump has sparked a cottage industry. True entrepreneurs. I wonder if they follow him around the country to his rallies, like the Plains Indians followed the buffalo herds? Anyway, if they weren't making money they wouldn't be there. MAGA! - Elric

  5. Nobody, except Trump, is standing up to Antifa, though --despite how unliked they are. And the media goes merrily along praising them for attacking horrible Republicans. The point I'm hoping to make is that some neutral media should be asking McConnell if he will start supporting the Trump agenda, which represents what an overwhelming portion of the GOP base and even a majority of independents want, starting with real immigration reform ... or if he intends to take the gains Trump's popular agenda may give the GOP this year and shaft the Republican party again?

  6. Remember Chicago '68? The riots? "For what It's Worth"? The Chicago 7?

    Wrap that up in a ball and toss in all the, "Hell, no, we won't go", and the Woodstocks of the time.

    The psychos running as Democrats are the grandchildren of those psychos.

    Do.

  8. Another factor: Trump voters are not participating in polls. I know I am not. The only poll I am going to do involves a ballot box in November.

    A postmortem on the piss-poor 2016 predictions confirms that this is a significant problem...and I am betting it will only get worse by November. https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-hillary-clinton-why-polls-wrong-2017-5

  9. People like having jobs, and having more on their paychecks. They just do, and democrats can't figure out why...and that's the saddest part of the whole thing.

    And I really want to know how the press is going to react when some Antifa thugs get perforated for their efforts: it's not a matter of it happening, just when.

  10. Mueller Convicted Manafort: Now It's Time For the Impeachment

    of Bob Mueller.

    Robert Mueller convicted Paul Manafort on facts that were known to him a decade ago when, as head of the FBI, he declined to refer these same charges.

    It was politically dangerous for Mueller to charge Manafort back then--he was well-connected to Republicans and Democrats alike, including the Podestas and Mueller's own law firm. So Mueller simply stuck the charges in his back pocket for a decade, a permanent indictment-in-waiting, a trick used by Soviet prosecutors.

    Fast forward ten years and the political calculus for Mueller has changed. Now it is very much in his political interest for Mueller to prosecute Manafort, in hopes of keeping the Obama/Clinton Coup Plotters out of jail themselves. (This has been going on for over three years since it was illegally cooked-up by John Brennan, and this Mueller Fraud is just a continuation of that crime.)

    But prosecutions are supposed to be about the need for justice--not the political needs of the prosecutor. Mueller failed to refer charges then because of his own political needs, and prosecuted today also because of his own political needs. That is fundamentally corrupt.

    And derelict.

    Since Mueller convicted on facts available to him years ago, that is ipso facto proof that he was derelict in his duty back then.

    Donald Trump hired Paul Manafort to secure convention delegates, a job he had done successfully for Pres. Ford.

    Consider this: Pres. Trump would have never even hired Manafort if only Bob Mueller had done his job a decade ago!

  11. I do believe that the RNC will lose some seats in the House and Senate but they will retain or gain overall control of both houses. The DNC is extremely corrupt in their current make up but I don't really believe they can fix enough races to take over, Through I don't doubt they will try very hard to corrupt as much as possible (burnt Earth).

  12. In this world the winners are those doing the beatings, the losers are those taking the beatings. Don't kid yourself, antifa and the establishment that supports it is winning, all on the backs of the tens of millions of colonists the Democrats ( with insane, inexplicable Republican collusion) have brought to the country over the last 40 years. These colonists are going to vote to loot the natives, they don't care about anything else. They're not going to be repulsed by antifa or the politicians who support them, and the (white) Silent Majority that moderated American politics either doesn't exist anymore or soon won't. Because of this biological political reality the left has lost its fear of a political backlash, that's why all the craziness is coming out now. They don't even bother to pretend that they're not white-hating racists of the most vicious kind. Antifa are agents of the state, Deep State, the System, the establishment, call it what you will, they couldn't exist otherwise. They're the extra-legal enforcement arm of that white-hating racist system and they'll continue to exist until the system no longer needs them or they become a threat to it.

    Every time you see a company jump through hoops when accused of political incorrectness it's because of these thugs. Every time someone who slightly disagrees with the left refuses to talk at a university they win. Their power and influence goes far below the surface. The Republicans are too scared of the antifa's masters to do anything about them, so you're not likely to get a democratic cure for the disease, no matter how large a number oppose them.
