Whelp, not one single person I voted for won. So, according to Democrats, I should not accept this and instead I should harass all of the people who were elected (interrupt dinners, protest outside their house and place of work, etc) and demand they do things my way.

I'm on it!

Thanks, Dems, for showing us how Democracy is really supposed to work!

RESIST!

On a another note, I love the quote from Pelosi: It's about stopping the GOP.

In other words, it's not about working with the other party, it's about stopping them. Welcome to the swamp! Here's looking forward to a GOP super majority in 2020!

It could have been a lot worse. Historically speaking, it really should have been worse. I'm not going to pretend I'm happy but it certainly wasn't the blue wave we were told was coming.

* It was a historically average midterm in the House. The Dems will be glad to win the House but will have a razor thin margin in 2020 and if they overplay the liberal lunacy, holding the House will hurt their chances against Trump's reelection.

* It was an important Republican victory in the Senate. They currently lead in Arizona and Florida and if both remain as red the Senate is looking to be 54 - 46 rather than the knife's edge of 51-49, plus we've gotten rid of Flake and Corker, both of whom were frankly irritating asshole RINOs getting in the way of getting shit done.

* Of the two, the Senate is by far the more important to hold, mainly due to its importance in judicial appointments but also in its foreign policy and cabinet approval power as well. Having some wiggle room for squishy Murkowski and Collins on judicial confirmations will be really, really, REALLY significant. And having Flake, Corker, and McCain (RIP) out of the Senate while keeping their seats helps.

* It was not a wave. There were some heartbreaking losses for Dems that will hurt for a while, and some close calls that hurt Republicans as well (Montana senate...ouch! Wisconsin governor...a shame!).

* Both sides can point beyond Congress to significant victories in the states. The Republicans held a massive lead in state seats and trifectas. Dems had nowhere to go but up, and they did that. However, Republicans held in some important places (notably Florida gov. among others) and flipped some others. Both sides have room to crow on that.

Trifectas: Who runs the states?

As much as Dems may be glad for the House and state gains, their gains are actually quite modest considering the fact that this was a midterm (usually bad for presidential party) AND Republicans had huge exposure nationwide from the Obama year gains (1000+ additional seats...thanks Obumbles!). We're heading into redistricting (census) and the states are even more important for that. So who runs all the levers (gov, house, senate) in the states, and which are divided?


Change in state government trifectas, 2018 elections
Trifecta status Before ,After ,Net
Democratic trifectas 8 ,14 ,+6
Republican trifectas 26 ,22 ,-4
Divided government 16 ,13 ,-3

Georgia gov. is headed red but uncalled. If it stays red, add another trifecta to Republicans (for 23 and a net loss of only 3). This means that Republicans only lost completely control in three states, and the states where Dems won trifecta control are meaningless for electoral (presidential) purposes because they're blueblueblue all the way thruthruthru, lol.

Not a bad night for Republicans. Could have been a huge blue tsunami for Dems, but two things turned it purple: Kavanaugh and the caravan. Both motivated conservatives big time.

Edit: More on the modest Dem gains in state legislatures, continuing Republican dominance, ahead of the 2020 census. You cannot overstate how badly Obumbles damaged Dems across the country. ONE THOUSAND legislative seats were lost under his 'leadership,' lol.

Apparently Adams is forcing a run-off in the Georgia Gov. race; not accepting the election results and will be asking for recounts and potentially new votes. She’s implying the vote is rigged by the opponent since Kemp is the Georgia Secretary of State and responsible for declaring the victor. In this case he declared himself the victor so now they’re saying he cheated. Fair enough I suppose. Trump should never have said he would question the legitimacy of the vote in 2016 because all it did was give other ijits an excuse they play to the hilt. Now no one accepts the results of a vote that is even somewhat close.

If she ends up with the seat it would be bad news for Georgia in so many ways however it will make Hollywood and others happy because they’ll have someone who will put a stop to that pesky Governor, for all his faults, who at least believes stuff like biological genders using the right bathroom and supports the 2nd amendment. Then Disney et. al. can stop spending a bunch of lobbying money virtue signaling about how they’ll have to find new places to film if they don’t do gender inclusive bathrooms and blah blah.

In other news the new ranking member of the Judicary committee is already setting his agenda:

1) Investigate Trump for “Russian collusion” and move to impeach cause apparently two years isn’t enough tax payer money to waste
2) Investigate Kavanaugh for purjury when he said he hadn’t heard of something
3) Have the FBI investigate the other 30 witnesses in the Kavanaugh case, even though two of the most credible have proven to have lied and the third is likely very mistaken in the identity of her assailant
4) Impeach Kavanaugh (of course)
5) Investigate Trump for removing Jeff Sessions with an eye toward impeaching Trump for obstruction of justice due to trying to get a new AG who will nuke the Muller investigation (which hasn’t found any evidence of Trump colluding with Russia in two years)

Lots of “progress” coming from these “progressives”, am I right? So much for moving the needle in all the important agenda items. On the other hand I guess the Dems aren’t exactly known for their new ideas or known for being able to handle tough challenges.

Nothing about improving the process for selection or vetting. Nothing about the democrat agenda for Medicare for All, free school, Gun Control, or anything non-Judical committee based. It’s all about impeaching Trump or Kav. I wonder what would happen if you asked one of ‘em to chew gum and attempt to do anything else...

The Kavanaugh ridiculousness is what I think did the most damage to the "Blue Wave"; the degree to which everything sort of petered out was palpable and it absolutely coincided with that sideshow. The caravan was a late-game element that I'm sure helped get some extra people out to the polls...even though they're still a good 800 miles away and on foot. They probably won't get to the border until January.

Good agenda for them. It will help reelect Trump in 2020 and will make winning the House back that much easier...and that's already made easy by the single-digit number of seats required to get that done. Overall the House is pretty useless. The Senate is really, really important. Judges. Treaties. Cabinet appointments. Big stuff. The House is like a flea market. Mostly fleas.

Also, neither are going anywhere with a Republican Senate. And getting the Senate back in 2020 (or ANY election thereafter) will not be easy. We are a "United STATES" of America, and the smaller states won't be giving up their two senators any time soon, and most of them are not liberal bastions of idiocy, lol.

Where's our resident anti-immigrant race hustler? I've been telling him repeatedly that you don't cure what ails America by racially purifying the nation, because the problem is white liberal morons not minorities.

Here's proof of just that. Why was Texas so close in several races? Not because of minorities or naturalized immigrant citizens. It was white liberals moving in from the coasts, bringing their ruinous idiocy with them, like locusts leaving the lands they've already destroyed.

Exit polling for Greg Abbott

2014
* Won white voters by 47%
* Lost black voters by 85%
* Lost Hispanic voters by 11%

2018
* Won white voters by 40% (7% worse)
* Lost black voters by 67% (18% better)
* Lost Hispanic voters by 9% (2% better, despite a Hispanic opponent)

Why would it be fraud? Florida is always incompetent as fuck when it comes to counting vote totals. This isn't some sudden new thing.

Also the sec of state is a republican, the gov is a republican. What you are saying doesn't make sense.

"Gretl Plessinger, a spokesperson for FDLE, told The Hill on Friday that the agency is working with the Florida Department of State on the matter, but has not launched an investigation, because it had not received any credible allegations of fraud."

Why wouldn't it be fraud? Democrats only do it EVERY fucking election for the last 20 years or so. It's sad that you subscribe to an ideology that can't win without actually fucking cheating each and every fucking time. In fact Broward County seems to have a history of this sort of shit. But that's ok Eats, just continue to lie, bury your head in the sand, and worship your progressive communist overlords you piece of garbage.

Why aren't liberals more excited about the results of the election?

Quote:
Red areas stayed red; blue areas stayed blue. The only real movement was in districts that were purple — districts that had voted for Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama or had narrowly supported Trump- tipped overwhelmingly to Democrats. As my colleague David Wasserman pointed out, Democrats didn’t flip any district that Trump had carried by 55 percent or more.
Excellent points. I'll add them to my opinion on why liberals aren't excited:

* They didn't move any red areas in the House, only purple areas.
* They didn't flip a single House district that's 55%+ Trump. Not one.
* At worst, Republicans will only need to flip a dozen or so House seats to get the House back in 2020...which means it's a dogfight, not a cake walk. That's not a lot of seats to flip in a collection of 435.
* Dems' 'best election since the 70s' is only the best because they lost 1000+ seats around the country under Obama, and only gained back at most a third of that. Bragging about climbing 300 feet when you started in a hole 1000 feet deep feels...deflating to those trying to do it. Look back at the history of the House and state legislative control. Dems OWNED the House/Senate AND states for nearly 70 years. Since the 90s, they've been struggling mightily. It's a great time to be a conservative!
* Their base of leftists (Pelosi) and the rest (not Pelosi) are at odds about the direction of their party.
* They're slowly bleeding black and Hispanic support. SCARY for them!
* They're losing a seat (or two....maybe three, but not likely three) in the Senate and have a continuing structural disadvantage in the Senate (2020 isn't happening for them), which doesn't reward stacking votes in California* or New York (or even Texas), but instead treats the states as sovereign entities united and equal in these united states that we call a nation. Good work framers/founders! :hat tip:
* They don't have anyone they're excited about for president in 2020. The #1 choice from a list of the typical Dem choices is "none of the above" lol.
* They face an executive (Trump) who actually fights back with the weapons they are used to using all alone. Most Republicans unilaterally disarm. Trump just picks up the same weapons and uses them against the lousy left just like they've been doing for decades. McCain was a Nazi, Romney was a misogynist, lololol fuck you Dems.
* They face a continuing run of conservative judicial appointments for at least two more years, and if Trump wins reelection for six more years.
* RBG is 85 and not well. Imagine how freaked conservatives were when Scalia died. Triple that mental derangement, because the Dems hold neither the WH or the Senate to slow or stop a replacement and their failure to destroy Kavanaugh with lunatic ramblings defangs their next go at it for another replacement.
* We are a divided nation. Nothing drives an elitist arrogant prick bastard more crazy than to be told that half of the folks around think he's an idiot and his opinion is shit. Conservatives are much more experienced with weathering interaction with, and opposition from, those who disagree with them because we don't live in mental/intellectual/emotional cocoons. Leftists can't deal, lol.

Bring on 2020 baby! I look forward to the next few years. It's been a hoot.

* "We won the national popular vote in the Senate" doesn't hold much water when California ran two Democrats and no Republican, lol. Sell that shit to the stupid.
Doesn't work in the House either when you end up 2018 with a higher percentage of seats above Republicans than the actual total vote tally, lol. WOOPS!

Say what you will about Bill O' Reilly but he's spot the fuck on in this clip with Laura Ingram. The left has never been as radical in this country's history as they are right now.
