After winning, Governor-elect Ron DeSantis said this:

“Campaigns are meant to be vigorously debated contests of ideas and competing visions for the future. The campaign for governor achieved this objective as evidenced by historic voter turnout from people of all parties across our state.

But campaigns of ideas must give way to governing and bringing people together to secure Florida’s future. With the campaign now over, that’s where all of my focus will be.

And, to this end, I invite Mayor Gillum to join me in the days ahead in a conversation about the future of our great state. We have both traveled the state and met Floridians from all walks of life. Sharing these experiences will, I believe, help us unite our state and build toward unity on behalf of the people of Florida.”

Bill Nelson Won't Overcome Rick Scott, Report Says

According to Politico, Florida Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson will, in all likelihood, come up short in his effort to reverse the results in his race against GOP Governor Rick Scott for Nelson’s Senate seat.

Scott currently leads Nelson by 12,652 votes, while the automatic recount has until Thursday to be tabulated. Politico spoke with experts who assert that Nelson’s last-ditch effort to grab the Senate seat from Scott will fail for two reasons: the lawsuits Nelson filed came too late, displeasing any courts assigned to review them, and the gap between Scott and Nelson is simply too large to be overcome.

Michael Morley, a Florida State University election law professor, told Politico:

"A royal flush is right on the money. Nelson would have to have a perfect hand. He would have to win in every case. And even then, it would not seem to be enough to change the outcome. One study that I’ve seen shows that in the 21st Century, there have only been three statewide races that have had their results changed as a result of a recount. And in each of those races, the margins were in the hundreds, not more than 12,000.”

America First: New poll says voters ready for Trump 2020

“With the midterm election in the books, voters are shifting their attention to the presidential election in 2020 and are growing more convinced that there’s a second term in sight for the 45th president,” says a new Rasmussen Reports analysis, which conducted a new survey Nov. 7 — just 24 hours after the Election Day.

It found that 47 percent of all U.S. voters believe that it is “likely Trump will be re-elected in 2020,” a finding which is up by 8 percentage points since August. There’s are negative aspects with lesser impact: 29 percent think the president will be defeated by the Democratic nominee in 2020, while 16 percent say Mr. Trump will be impeached and convicted before finishing a full term in the White House.

A separate Rasmussen survey also has some findings which lean in favor of the president and his policies.

“President Trump was criticized at a summit with European leaders this week for putting America’s interests ahead of global needs. Voters still share the president’s ‘America First’ attitude,” the poll analysis said. “When they think about problems in the world, 50 percent of likely U.S. voters still are more interested in finding a solution that most benefits the United States as opposed to one that is better for the whole world.”

Know Your Enemy - What is going on with these crazy Donkeys?

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles"

Sun Tzu-The Art of War

"Nancy Pelosi, long the leftward fringe of her party, is no longer representative of the new Jacobins who form the center of power"

(Excerpt)

Socialist know-nothing Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez is the future of the Democrat Party. Nancy Pelosi is its past. The Ocasio-Cortez contingent in the party has determined that Nancy Pelosi simply isn’t radical enough.

For Republicans, Pelosi's a radical who favors amnesty, citizenship, and voting rights for illegal aliens, government funded abortion on demand, and impeaching the president. But in the current Democrat Party she’s a mushy moderate.

For her part, Ocasio-Cortez spent Tuesday, her first day in Washington, DC, protesting climate change in Pelosi’s office.

So what do Democrats want? For one thing, they seem to want people decidedly to the Left of Pelosi. After all, in the recently past election they elected not only Ocasio-Cortez but also fellow-travelers like Lauren Underwood in Illinois and the Israel hating Ilhan Omar who has been accused of marrying her brother.

Democrats have, as ever, an aggressive legislative agenda that would, in Barack Obama’s words, ‘fundamentally transform the country’ but they know it’s going nowhere. House Democrats will probably pass a massive expansion of Medicaid, an amnesty bill, and maybe legislation to take control of elections away from the states. They won’t become law, but they will whet the appetite of their base and give them rallying points for their campaign to take control of the Senate in 2020 when Republicans will be defending 22 seats. But for now, with a divided Congress, everything but essential legislation will be mooted until 2021.

Martha McSally Could Still Represent Arizona In The Senate

It will take Republican Gov. Doug Ducey, who trounced his Democratic opponent to win another term, to sign off on it, and current Sen. Jon Kyl needs to resign. Kyl was appointed to fill the vacancy left by the late Sen. John McCain. The discussions on this route have already begun, as Kyl has zero interest in returning to public life.

More than one million Arizona voters wanted to see the former fighter-pilot-turned-southern-Arizona congresswoman in the Senate.

Israel Attacked: Hamas fired more than 400 rockets in 5 and-a-half hours on Monday, Nov. 12

Israel’s deterrent strength is on the line after the Palestinian Hamas fired more than 400 rockets in 5 and-a-half hours on Monday, Nov. 12. After their massive barrage, Hamas and its terrorist allies threatened to expand their targets beyond the South if the Israel air force on missions in Gaza Monday night goes beyond its routine tit-for-tat reprisals against empty buildings in the Gaza Strip.

An escalation of violence is therefore unavoidable in the next hours.

Feel Good Again - 'Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) is the insurgency that will stop the rise of socialism in America.'

"The Democrat Socialists stand against nearly every principle YAL holds dear.

YAL is the insurgency that will stop the rise of socialism in America."

(Excerpt)

Generation Z may be the heir to a bankrupt social security system and over $21.6 trillion of debt, but unlike generations before them, they aren’t buying into socialism, and they aren’t kicking the can down the road.  

A student army, nine years in the making, descended into state house districts across the United States, knocked on over 1 million doors, and clinched 35 midterm wins for libertarian-leaning candidates as part of a project called Operation Win at the Door.”  

First, the plan called for identifying candidates running on liberty-based principles and vetting them via survey. The survey contained 29 questions related to taxes, spending, civil liberties, regulation reform, etc. to determine which candidates supported free minds, free markets, and limited government.

Secondly, the plan called for hiring, training, and deploying activists.  Teams consisting of 10 activists would be assembled and sent to targeted house districts with the mission of knocking on 35,000 doors and talking to likely voters three times; ultimately making sure voters turn up to support the YAL endorsed candidate on Election Day.   

Election night vindicated YAL’s tactics as they brought home 35 wins. 

'Operation Win at the Door' by Young Americans for Liberty (“YAL”)
