'Partisan double standards, ignoring what really matters, smears, turning basic notions of fairness on their head'

"Nothing that the confirmation process had to offer was relevant to these senators because they already had the one piece of information, the one word, that really mattered: Trump. They would oppose the nominee because he or she would be Trump’s nominee. Period"

(Excerpt)

On July 9, within minutes of President Donald Trump’s announcement of Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his Supreme Court nominee, Schumer vowed to “oppose Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination with everything I have.” When he said everything, he meant it.

I can’t prove it, but if I were a betting man, I would wager that Schumer’s statement was written ahead of time, leaving a blank for the nominee’s name. Other Senate liberals, such as Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, actually announced their opposition nearly two weeks earlier, without even knowing who the nominee would be.

In 2009, Schumer said that a judicial record is the “best way to evaluate a nominee” and even more important than the confirmation hearing. Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., agreed that “looking at what kind of judge a nominee has been means we do not have to speculate about what kind of a justice” he will be. Neither one of them is interested in Kavanaugh’s judicial record today.

Schumer and Leahy have said that the American Bar Association’s rating is the “gold standard” for evaluating nominees. The ABA unanimously rated Kavanaugh well qualified, which means, the ABA explains, that he meets “the very highest standards of integrity, professional competence and judicial temperament.” That no longer matters either.

Partisan double standards, ignoring what really matters, smears, turning basic notions of fairness on their head—that is what it means to use “whatever means necessary.” Schumer is keeping his promise of opposing Kavanaugh with everything he has. It won’t be enough.

This is what Democrat total war looks like. It should be a Midterm wake-up call.

After the public assassination of Judge Kavanaugh’s character .. there can’t be many left in the GOP who will still dispute former Breitbart CEO Steve Bannon’s assertion that politics is warfare and Trump is thus justified in anything he does to combat his opponents….

It also brings back what I said in The value of Trump to the Trump voter is that he stands between them and #TheResistance:

Right now the value of Trump to the Trump voter is he is all that stands between them and the people who hate them every bit as much as they hate Trump.

Trump voters are berated and belittled with the same ferocity as directed at Trump himself. #TheResistance doesn’t distinguish between Trump and his voters. We all understand that what is being done to Trump is simply a continuation of the attempt to unwind the 2016 election.

The answer is to get out and vote. Get your friends and relatives out to vote.

"America is back, and we’re just getting started"

(Excerpt)

Vice President Mike Pence had a message for former President Barack Obama at the Values Voter Summit Saturday: the American economy is booming because the Trump administration is rolling back Obama administration policies.

“It’s been two years of promises made and promises kept, and we’re just getting started,” Pence told the conference audience in Washington, DC. He cited more than four million jobs created since President Donald Trump took office, record low black and Hispanic unemployment, wages rising at the fastest pace in a decade, and the highest middle class income in recorded history.

Vice President Pence then launched into what he said was a message for former President Obama:

President Obama, you presided over the weakest economic expansion since the Great Depression. When we took over this economy, it was growing by less than two percent, and now it’s growing by more than four percent. This economy isn’t booming because of your policies; it’s booming because we’ve been rolling back the failed policies of your administration since day one.

Near the close of his speech, Pence strongly encouraged the audience to vote in the midterm elections. He also told them to tell their friends what the Trump administration has accomplished and to encourage them to vote also.

EARLY VOTING BEGINS, FINAL PHASE OF MIDTERMS IS HERE

 

Sept. 21, 2018 - AP:  In Minnesota, the first votes of the 2018 midterm elections are being cast. Voting machines are set up inside city buildings. A series of get-out-the-vote rallies is scheduled. And each party is spending millions of dollars to push its supporters to the polls.

While Election Day 2018 is technically Nov. 6, Minnesota law allows in-person voting to begin Friday — a full 46 days early — making it the first battleground state to begin casting actual votes in the broader fight for control of Congress.

Voters in every corner of the nation will soon follow. South Dakota also opens early voting on Friday, and four more states follow in the next six days, including key states including New Jersey and Missouri. California, Montana and Arizona are among seven others that allow early voting in the subsequent two weeks.

It may feel early, but make no mistake: The final phase of the 2018 midterm season has begun.

What do the leftists want? .. CONTROL

Sept. 20, 2018: Former French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen, who is head of the former National Front party – now National Rally - revealed on Twitter her shock and anger at being ordered to undertake a psychiatric assessment. The unusual summoning is in relation to Le Pen having tweeted out gruesome propaganda images from terror group ISIS that showed the bodies of people having been executed by the Islamic State. 

Marine Le Pen posted the ISIS pictures just a few weeks after the Paris terror attacks in November 2015 in which 130 people were killed. The images included a photo of the decapitated body of US journalist James Foley. "Daesh is this!" Le Pen wrote in a caption, using an Arabic acronym for ISIS.

In March, Le Pen was charged with circulating “violent messages that incite terrorism or pornography or seriously harm human dignity” and that can be viewed by a minor. The crime is punishable by up to three years in prison and a fine of 75,000 euros ($91,000). And as part of their investigation magistrates in Nanterre near Paris have ordered Le Pen to visit a psychiatrist for an expert assessment.

Trump's top 2016 pollster: "It was literally about four counties in Florida, one county in Michigan"

Posted by  | Dec 5, 2016 

“When you really drill down on this election, change the vote in five counties, four in Florida, one in Michigan, we’d be having a totally opposite conversation right now,” said pollster Tony Fabrizio at a Harvard University forum.

“For all the money that was spent, for the all the effort that was made, literally four counties in Florida, one county in Michigan puts us at 261 [electoral] votes and makes Hillary Clinton the president. So, remember that.”

Those who have studied the election tallies closely say that he almost certainly was referring to Macomb in Michigan. Macomb is an obvious conclusion because the county gave Trump a 50,000-vote edge while the billionaire businessman pulled off his upset victory in the state by just 10,000 votes

In Florida it was a reference to four of these five: Lee County (Fort Myers), Pasco (Dade City), Polk (Bartow), Pinellas (Clearwater) and Volusia (Daytona Beach) all areas that were key in delivering his 1.2 percent margin of victory.

A private survey shows many Republican voters “don’t believe there is anything at stake” in the midterm elections.

Internal RNC Poll: Complacent Trump Voters May Cost GOP Control of Congress

A leaked survey conducted for the Republican National Committee (RNC) found that a majority of President Trump’s supporters don’t believe that Democrats have a chance to win back the House during November’s midterm elections.

Bloomberg Business on Tuesday published the survey, completed by Public Opinion Strategies polling firm on Sept. 2. The results are likely to augment GOP fears about Trump's base not showing up for the midterms, when the president himself will not be on the ballot but House and Senate majorities are in play.

A number of election forecasters project that Democrats have an excellent chance of netting more than the 23 seats they need to take over the House majority, but half of self-identified Republicans told the poll they didn’t believe in the “blue wave.”

A report on the poll was sent to RNC officials urging them to convince Trump supporters that the threat from Democrats was real and that they needed to show up to vote in November.
