    How the midterms should be judged?

    Dow was up 545 points today. I'd say we're all doing OK after the vote.

    President Trump's new Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, who has criticized the Mueller probe, will now oversee it


    President Donald Trump's new acting attorney general, Matthew Whitaker, will oversee special counsel Robert Mueller's probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.

    "The Acting Attorney General is in charge of all matters under the purview of the Department of Justice," a spokesperson for the department says when asked if Whitaker would oversee Mueller's investigation."

    I'm sure that will cause the latest Liberal meltdown. In my mind it's perfectly fair because previously people that despise Trump were overseeing the investigation. Turnabout is fair play.

    Trump is guilty, and no one should get in the way of Mueller finding it.
    You lost. Get over it.

    White House Suspends CNN's Jim Acosta's Press Pass

    After sparring with President Donald Trump earlier this afternoon, CNN's White House Correspondent, Jim Acosta, has been denied access to the White House.

    According to reports, Sarah Huckabee Sanders said they revoked Acosta's hard press pass, meaning Acosta must be escorted on property.

    Accosta's behavior was despicable.
    CNN will reward him with his own show.

    Dems really crying now



    Where does Beto go from here? Hint: He’s not running in 2020.


    O’Rourke has shut down the talk, including on Monday when he once again ruled out a presidential bid in two years. “I will not be a presidential candidate in 2020,” he told reporters in Houston. “That is as definitive as it gets.”

    He's pulling a Paul Ryan. Paul Ryan did two things that made it obvious to me that he was a weirdo. The first was when he claimed a marathon time one hour better than he ran. Nobody forgets their marathon time, and nobody normal would falsely claim a stunning time that could easily be checked. He's apparently some fitness P90X fanatic. He knows what a ridiculously good marathon time is. The second indicator was when he put special rules about him accepting the Speaker role, and they were agreed to. I knew two things at that point - he's a narcissistic delusional weirdo, and the Republicans in congress were a bunch of dickless losers. I see almost complete parallels here with Beto and the dems.

    Just ask your question and sit down and don't keep arguing with the President when he gives an answer you don't like.

    The Reps may have retained the House if those retiring RHINOS hadn't bought into the "Blue Wave" scam.

    Genius take from Limbaugh:

    Retiring RHINOS bought into the medias "Blue Wave" scam..

    Lost in all of this was the 40 to 45 Republican congressional retirements. Forty sitting Republicans retired. I started asking Republicans why. And what I was told, “Well, you know, many of them are committee chairmen and they’re term limited out and they don’t want to hang around going back as regular members.” Well, maybe.

    But I don’t think that was solely it.
    I think that the Republican Party in the House of Representatives had a whole bunch of people in there that didn’t like Trump. And I think they had a whole lot of people who thought that Trump was gonna bring massive landslide defeat to the party and they wanted to get out before it happened.

    They didn’t want to be a part of it; so they announced their resignations. And one of the things I think that convinced these Republicans that there was gonna be this massive Trump wipeout was all this incessant chatter about the blue wave brought on by the media.

    And I think these Republicans, these moderate RINO Never Trumper Republicans bought in to a gigantic scam that the media and the Democrats ran on this blue wave business. They bought it hook, line, and sinker.

    They thought there’s no chance, Trump is hated and despised, we’re getting out. And so they did. And when you lose 45 incumbents, don’t care who they are, because 98% of incumbents win reelection in the House, 98%. When 40 to 45 of your sitting Republicans get out of there, that presents another challenge, because those are open seats, become brand-new candidates on both sides. Incumbency is lost as a benefit.


    I’m gonna get to this ’cause I’ve hyped it enough here, ’cause I have a theory, and I think it’s the first example not so much of voter suppression, but I think what happened hastened a bunch of Republican retirements from the House. There were 40 or 45 — I’ve heard both numbers. I thought it was 45 but I keep hearing people say 40, the exact number is not relevant to my point. It’s one of those two.

    When you lose 45 incumbents, that is a monumental thing to overcome because of the tendency of incumbents in the House to get reelected, 98% reelection rate for incumbents. In fact, that stat has been one of the many complaints about politics in Washington and how tough it is for outsiders to get in because the powers of incumbency with fundraising and special interest backing is so crucial and hard to overcome.

    Well, back in December of 2017, we had the first generic ballot poll which showed the Democrats with a 13-point margin. The media started hyping it, they started talking about it with polling data, without polling data. And a bunch of Republicans — you have to go back, 2017, throughout that year there were a lot of Republicans who hated Donald Trump and did not want to acknowledge that he was president, just like a bunch of Democrats.

    Some of them were Never Trumpers. Some of them were RINOs. But many of them were scared to death of what Republicans have been scared to death of for years and that’s the Washington press corps. And so these guys started talking about this massive blue wave that was coming, and they associated it with the fact that Trump’s election was stolen, the Russians stole the election.

    That first year, 2017, the intensity of this stuff, you know, we forget it because memories are replaced by reality at the moment. But it was intense! You had Republican leadership in the House not supportive of Trump. You had Republicans not helping Trump with anything.

    Repeal and replace Obamacare was not happening because a bunch of Republicans believed this garbage that Trump had stolen the election; so they thought he was not gonna be around long.
    They thought he was gonna be impeached or indicted or something. And this was all created by the media.

    Michael Moore says Kamala, Cory Booker won't defeat Trump, urges Dems to nominate Michelle Obama

    Moore made the comments on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” following the results of the 2018 midterm elections, where Democrats regained control of the House of Representatives.

    Moore, who predicted Trump’s victory in 2016, went on to ask who, in two years' time, could possibly challenge the president, whom he described as a “true danger” and an “evil genius.”

    After show co-host Mika Brzezinski floated the name of Harris, Moore shot back that neither the California Democrat nor Booker of New Jersey could win against Trump.

    “No," he said about Harris. "Love her. No, not going to happen. Cory — love him. No. We cannot run a politician against [Trump]. We will lose.”

    “Why aren’t we thinking along the lines of ‘Who can defeat him?’ We will lose in 2020,” he added.

    Or he just knows that the Dem machine isn’t going to throw hundreds of millions to him again and that was the only reason he had a chance.

    He’ll just sit back and be hailed as a hero that almosy turned Texas blue, probably get a TV gig.
