"While Democrats are largely ducking the topic on the campaign trail, few in Washington doubt that impeachment will be on the table if they win the House on Nov. 6."
COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa — President Trump was energized. Fresh from the fight to confirm Brett Kavanaugh, he was firing up thousands of supporters at a rally by complaining about how Democrats had treated his nominee and how they may yet try to remove Justice Kavanaugh from the bench. “They’re saying, ‘We’ll impeach him" Impeach him for what? For what?” The crowd booed.
“Besides that,” Mr. Trump then added slyly, “I have to go first, right?” The crowd laughed. But after almost two years of living under the cloud of a possible impeachment, it may soon cease to be a laughing matter.
While Democrats are largely ducking the topic on the campaign trail, few in Washington doubt that impeachment will be on the table if they win the House on Nov. 6. If that happens, anyone who thought the battle over Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation was ugly and divisive should buckle up, because history suggests it would provide only a small taste of what lies ahead.

Hillary Clinton Loses Security Clearance
Nancy Soderberg claims that the Uranium One deal occurred a decade ago (it did not), so why are we talking about it. She goes on to say besides,”this whole issue is fake news” and that the real story is Russia’s collusion in the 2016 presidential election.
Spoken like a true swamp critter and die-hard Clintonista.
For the record, the Uranium One deal occurred in 2010, seven years ago. We are talking 20% of U. S. uranium and millions of dollars were donated/funneled to the Clinton Foundation.
As reported back in 2015, by The New York Times
Beyond mines in Kazakhstan that are among the most lucrative in the world, the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States. Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.
And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.

Most of the Democrat Party’s candidates for all 435 seats in the House of Representatives and the one-third of the Senate that’s in play are supporters of the anti-Trump “resistance.” A growing number of those candidates favor policies that are in sync with far-left radical groups such as the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), the largest socialist membership organization in the United States.
In Florida, the Democratic candidate for governor, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum has declined to say if he is a socialist. As an editorial in National Review cautioned, however, that Gillum “is campaigning as a member of the Sanders/Ocasio-Cortez wing of the party: He wants to abolish ICE, raise the minimum wage to $15, pass single-payer health care, and increase taxes across the board.”
A dirty little secret about the socialist left, which now includes many Democrats, is their frequent embrace of anti-Semitism. As Chris Pandolfo wrote in the Conservative Review last September:
“As insurgent hard-left socialists become the face and the ‘future‘ of the Democratic Party, their connections to anti-Semitic organizations and attitudes are becoming more apparent.” Gillum, for example, “has aligned himself with several prominent anti-Semitic organizations known for promoting boycotts of Jewish goods and individuals,” according to Adam Kredo of the Washington Free Beacon.

Democrat Senator’s Hurricane Relief Ads Link to His Campaign Website and to the Soros-Funded Act Blue Fundraising Page
On Thursday after the devastation of Hurricane Michael, Senator Nelson posted a link to help people impacted by #HurricaneMichael.
That link brings you to his campaign website where you are asked to donate.
Another post for hurricane relief brings you to the Soros-funded Act Blue website.
Bill Nelson has been playing politics for the last 46 years.
Enough is enough.
Stay Classy, Billy: FL Democrat Won't Let A Hurricane Keep Him From Attacking Rick Scott
With Election Day less than 30 days away, the polls gridlocked, and a major hurricane slamming into the state, Nelson thought it would be best to not only run attack ads as Gov. Scott prepared the state’s panhandle for its worst hurricane strike ever. They even sent a tracker to his emergency briefing because…he was going to take the opportunity to attack Nelson? Because he might slip up and then use that as fodder in a campaign, where property and people’s lives could be lost?
View image on Twitter
Democrats will go low to win. We saw that with the recent Supreme Court battle. I would say Scott should do the same, but his handling of Hurricanes Irma and Maria were excellent and boosted his popularity. Also, as governor, he can’t really dabble in this nonsense given the office and the responsibility when facing a major storm. If he does manage this natural disaster well, and he should, then the political dividends he would reap should be significant, coupled with the Nelson campaign looking like a bunch of craven fools.

Here's an Idea .. Let's Get to Work for Florida.

Vote 'No' on Amendment 3
If Amendment 3 passes, the Legislature would lose the ability to approve any further expansion of casino-style gambling in Florida, including sports betting. There are some big names behind this amendment. Disney Worldwide Services, the political arm of the mammoth Walt Disney Company, has opened its coffers in support.
There are reasons, however, to approach a sweeping prohibition like this with caution. One of them is swirling toward the Gulf of Mexico right now. With big storm after big storm battering Florida, it's easy to foresee a time when lawmakers run out of options — and money — to meet the state's most critical needs. This takes a big opportunity off the table. Gambling already generates hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue for the state, including $280 million this year from the Seminole Tribe of Florida, which operates six casinos across the state.
The relationship between the tribe and the state is best summed up as “complicated.” For years, the tribal gaming compact was seen as a gentleman's agreement between Seminole leaders and lawmakers — if the Legislature didn't push for other forms of gaming, the tribe would continue to be generous with payments.
But if Amendment 3 passes, “there's nothing left to negotiate for,” says Mike Scudiero, an Ormond Beach based consultant who has worked on gaming issues. This amendment is likely to give the tribe a near-monopoly on games of chance in the state, while shutting down the possibility of negotiating other forms of gambling for anyone. On balance, it's not hard to see why the Seminole Tribe is enthusiastically, though quietly, backing Amendment 3.
The idea of voter control sounds attractive, and there are sound public-policy arguments against expanding gambling. But Amendment 3 won't make gambling go away; it's already here. Approving this prohibition would require voters to roll the dice that harder times will never force lawmakers to make tough choices like expanding gambling — and that the Seminole Tribe's generosity won't be affected if it gains such a clear upper hand in negotiations. That makes it a bad bet for Florida.
Editorial - 10/9/18 edition
The 2010 United States elections were held on Tuesday, November 2, 2010, in the middle of President Barack Obama's first term. Approximately 82.5 million people voted. The Democratic Party suffered massive defeats in many national and state level elections, with many seats switching to Republican Party control. Although the President's party usually loses congressional, statewide and local seats in midterm elections, the 2010 midterm election season featured some of the biggest losses since the Great Depression.
The Republican Party gained 63 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, recapturing the majority, ousting Nancy Pelosi as Speaker, and making it the largest seat change since 1948 and the largest for any midterm election since the 1938 midterm elections. The Republicans gained six seats in the U.S. Senate and also gained 680 seats in state legislative races.

The Kavanaugh nomination turned on two events. First, as I discussed here, Kavanaugh chose to fight. He wasn't going to quietly and gently absorb all of the false, outlandish accusations. Trump's speech October 2 in Southaven, Mississippi, was the second event that drove Kavanaugh toward confirmation. Trump rehashed Christine Ford's testimony.
"How did you get home? I don’t remember. How did you get there? I don’t remember. Where is the place? I don’t remember. How many years ago was it? I don’t know. I don’t know. I don't know."
Trump wasn't mocking Ford, he was transcribing her. It turns out Trump's transcription made the difference. He accomplished in 36 seconds what took Senator Susan Collins nearly an hour to do — shine a 100,000 megawatt spotlight on the failure of Ford to convince us that Brett Kavanaugh did anything to her.
Some will be slow to absorb this. The Woman is Always Right crowd probably never will. The ones in most need of schooling, however, are the establishment Republicans who are filled with animosity toward Trump and his tactics. Times have changed, and the Left is seeking to forever transform the country using tactics that the Old Ways can't combat. We saw it these last three weeks. Trump understands it. Matthew Continetti puts it this way:
He brags, he intimidates, he pouts, he jokes, he insults, he is purposefully ambiguous, and he leaves no criticism unanswered. He is frenetic and polarizing, a showboat and a salesman. His methods are over-the-top, combative, and divisive. Where others mindlessly repeat politically correct clichés, Trump unequivocally challenges them. He is president of a country that is wilder, zanier, and more unpredictable than before. It is also stronger.
