Trump pulls a rabbit out of his hat

A mid-term election with a Republican in the White House is supposed to bring a blue wave, but as I told readers on June 22, "Trump prepares to pull a rabbit out of his hat."

Tonight, President Trump pulled a rabbit out of Ohio as Republican Troy Balderson won an open seat in the 12th congressional district. This was a seat Democrats desperately needed to flip.

President Trump rallied and campaigned and put his reputation on the line.

He smacked Democrats over the head with a 4 by 4 -- as in 4% growth, 4% unemployment.

Balderson will finish out the term this year, and in November will seek a two-year term.

President Trump is doing something unusual in politics; he's keeping his promises. The economy is back on track. Wars are winding down. America is not letting Munchkin countries push us around. Get in the back row, Montenegro. The president of the United States gets the center stage.

There were a bunch of primaries in other states. Kyle Olson reported that the Openly Socialist Democratic flavor of the month, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, struck out.

Olson wrote, "Cortez held a whirl-wind tour of the U.S., stumping for Abdul El-Sayed for governor of Michigan, Fayrouz Saad in Michigan’s 11th Congressional District, Cori Bush in Missouri’s 1st District, and is backing Congressional candidate Kaniela Ing in Hawaii."

El-Sayed lost by 16 points.

Saad finished fourth in a five-way race.

Hawai'i holds its primary on Saturday.

President Trump waded into the Michigan senatorial primary, backing John James, who won by 13 points in a two-way race.

But Ohio was the big prize. President Trump tweeted:

When I decided to go to Ohio for Troy Balderson, he was down in early voting 64 to 36. That was not good. After my speech on Saturday night, there was a big turn for the better. Now Troy wins a great victory during a very tough time of the year for voting. He will win BIG in Nov.

For a newcomer to politics, President Trump sure does a lot of winning.

His supporters need to hang tough. Trust the man.

You have no alternative.

  2. We got a blue wave coming, and it will again be just as the media predicts. Sort of like when hillary won the presidency w 400 votes in the electoral college in 2016.

  3. Most of the things you read on the internet are slanted toward the left. But the Right, the Silent Majority, is making itself felt. MAGA! - Elric

  4. In Hawaii, Ing is running against Douglas Chin, the former AG of Hawaii who filed the infamous, and ultimately futile, lawsuits against Trump's immigration policies. Both will lose to one of two other more well-known candidates. Chin has no future in Hawaii politics. He's Asian but an outsider, a "katonk," which means he has no local constituency, neither white nor Asian.

    1. “katonk”

      Trying to identify that sound.

      A bird hitting a window? No...

      A clue stick being applied? No...

      Oh, I know! Wet tennis-ball ... back of the head ... katonk!

      Katonk sounds like the new dodge-ball.

  5. Come the Red Wave, the Dems will start looking for a scapegoat, for someone to blame for ruining the pitch.

    Helloooo, Mueller.

  6. OH special election turnout was terrible though.

    D's turned out at 85% of what they had in '16
    R's turned out at 40%.

    If that happens nationally this November, we're in deep trouble.

  7. 85% of what they had in’16, including 15% who were dead, not born yet, or living in Shanghai. You’re right, Aarra, we need to get more folks out. But if low turnout is why we lose, shame on us. I’m worried about the places that have 300 registered voters and get 700 votes. Voter fraud cancels the will of the people and needs to be stopped, pronto.

  8. Amazing that the Dems think the garbage they spew actually would sell. Have to admit, hear it often enough, it scares the hell out of you, but the people know better.

    1. It is garbage but the close results (and skewed turnout) are of concern.

  9. I'm stocking up on popcorn for the November "Great Blue Tantrum". Think TDS is widespread now? The stuff will hit the fan!
