What Can Be Learned From Democrat And Republican Delusions On Obamacare Shadowproof

After a decade of intense political fighting and two of the largest wave elections in history, the United States finally has a quasi-stable political equilibrium on the Affordable Care Act.

We have Obamacare, just minus the deeply unpopular stuffi.e., the individual mandate and the Cadillac tax on employer-provided insurance. This fills me with both personal vindication, since this what I advocated Democrats pass in 2010, and deep concern because it shows neither major political party has any idea how to make laws popular.

When it comes to big pieces of legislation, they are only as popular as the least popular major provision. Most voters dont evaluate legislation with a complex utilitarian calculation weighing the net value of every provision. Most judge legislation the way they would a pizza. You could have five amazing toppings on that pizza, but if the sixth topping is rotten fish, no one will want to eat your pizza.

If you understand this axiom and realize none of the so-called political gurus leading either major party in our country do, something becomes clear. The last decade of political fighting over the ACA has been less of a titanic struggle between genius ideological leaders and more of a farcical dark comedy performed by fools.

Democrats mass delusion

In 2009-2010, Democrats strongly bought into their own spin, so convinced of their technocratic mastery that they succumbed to mass delusion.

Poll after poll after poll showed Democrats that the ACA was unpopular because of the individual mandate and tax on employer-provided insurance. Yet, instead of jettisoning these provisions, Democrats kept digging deeper into their own self-delusion.

Democrats became dogmatically convinced that only they could see these policies were essential, even though the Congressional Budget Office kept saying without a mandate the system would still work fine, though a bit less efficiently.

Meanwhile, the economic logic behind the tax on employer-provided insurance was grossly naive, since it ignored how the price problem in the U.S. system is mainly due to monopoly power.

Democrats insisted these policies were only unpopular because Republicans made them controversial. However, it was well known these ideas were politically toxic from the beginning. That is why, as a candidate, President Barack Obama hammered Hillary Clinton over her support of the mandate during the 2008 primary and hammered John McCain for his support of taxing employer coverage in the general election.

After Obama spent months telling the public how stupid these ideas were, it was an a...

Republican Congressman Sues to Stop Algorithm From Deciding Election in Maine The Gateway Pundit

Rep. Bruce Poliquin (R-ME)

Republican Congressman for Maines 2nd district, Bruce Poliquin filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday against Maines Secretary of State to stop an algorithm from deciding the election in his race against Democrat opponent Jared Golden.

Via the Press Herald:

Republican 2nd District Congressman Bruce Poliquin filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday against Maines Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap in an attempt to stop a tabulation of ranked-choice ballots in his race against Democratic challenger Jared Golden.

The suit filed in federal court in Bangor is asking for an injunction against Dunlap to stop what would be the first congressional race in the nation to be decided through ranked-choice voting. Neither Poliquin nor Golden secured a majority of the vote in the first round of counting, pushing the tabulation to voters second choices in an attempt to determine which candidate has the support of more than 50 percent of voters.

Maine voters have approved the process twice at the ballot box.

Poliquins suit claims the use of ranked-choice voting violates the U.S. Constitution because the document sets a plurality vote as the qualification for election to Congress.

Bruce Poliquin also sent a letter to Secretary of State Dunlaps office requesting his staff stop processing votes ahead of Wednesdays ranked-choice run-off.

Republican Congressman Bruce Poliquin pointed out that Maine has a lon...

Developing: Does Mueller Have Matt Whitakers Emails to Trump Campaign Adviser Sam Clovis? The Gateway Pundit

Democrats are panicked now that Trump assigned Matt Whitaker as acting Attorney General.

Whitaker is a friend of Sam Clovis a former Trump campaign official.

Several Democrats believe this is reason for Whitaker to recuse himself from overseeing the Mueller Special Counsel.

Clovis was interviewed by the Mueller Special Counsel.

Clovis believes Obama spy Stefan Halper used him in his quest to build an espionage trail for the corrupt Obama deep state.

Now there are reports that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has all of Cloviss emails with Matt Whitaker.

DEMOCRATS Eye Mississippi Runoff Election Hope Racist Smears Will Give Democrat a Boost in Race The Gateway Pundit

Democrats are itching to steal another senate election and now have their eyes on Mississippi.

The Democrat party is pushing the myth that Republican Sen. Cyndy Hyde-Smith (R-MS) is a racist because she mentioned the words public hanging during a campaign stop in Tupelo.

So she must be a racist.

This is what the Democrat Party is today racist smear merchants.

It seems to be working for them.

Cindy Hydee-Smith responded to the smear on Monday. reported:

Democrats in Mississippi are hoping to pull off an upset in the November 27 Senate runoff election between GOP nominee Sen. Cyndy Hyde-Smith (R-MS) and Democrat nominee former Rep. Mike Espy (D-MS).

This is precisely what they did in the Alabama special Senate election in December of last year when Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) narrowly defeated embattled GOP nominee Roy Moore.

At first glance, the odds in favor of a Democrat victory would appear improbable.

President Trump easily defeated Hillary Clinton in Mississippi in 2016 by 18 points, 58 percent to 40 percent.

It has been 36 years since the state last elected a Democrat to the United States Senate in 1982, when incumbent Sen. John Stennis (D-MS) was re-elected to his seventh and final term.

But some level of trouble is on the horizon for the GOP, and the Democrats are looking to capitalize on it.

In the three-way election to complete the remaining two years of Sen. Thad Cochrans term last Tuesday, Hyde-Smith, who was appointed by Gov. Phil Bryant to the seat in April after Cochrans resignation, finished in first place with 41 percent, Espy finished in second place with 40 percent, and State Senator Chris McDaniel, the Tea Party favorite who narrowly lost the 2014 GOP runoff primary election to Cochran, finished in third with 16 pe...

Sarah Sanders RIPS Jim Acosta in Response to CNN Lawsuit Over Suspension of Press Pass The Gateway Pundit

CNN and Jim Acosta filed a lawsuit against President Trump, WH Press Sec. Sarah Sanders, the Secret Service and several aides on Tuesday over the suspension of Acostas hard press pass.

ABC reported:

The wrongful revocation of these credentials violates CNN and Acostas First Amendment rights of freedom of the press, and their Fifth Amendment rights to due process, CNNs communications team said in a press release.

In the complaint, filed in D.C. District Court, lawyers for CNN argued the revocation of Acostas credentials is only the beginning.

This severe and unprecedented punishment is the culmination of years of hostility by President Trump against CNN and Acosta based on the contents of their reportingan unabashed attempt to censor the press and exclude reporters from the White House who challenge and dispute the Presidents point of view, CNNs lawyers wrote in the court documents.

The president lacks the authority to quash the First Amendment, the lawyers wrote, and access to the White House cannot be denied arbitrarily.

According to the lawsuit, CNN and Acosta aim to enforce this constitutional commitment, restore Acostas well-deserved press credentials, and ensure that the press remains free to question the government and to report the business of the nation to the American people.

Jim Acostas White House press pass was suspended following the incident wherein he assaulted a female White House staffer last Wednesday.

Acosta said Secret Service denied him entry to the White House following the suspension.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders responded to CNNs lawsuit on Tuesday and ripped Jim Acosta.

This is just more grandstanding from CNN, and we will vigorously defend against this lawsuit, Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

Sarah Sanders pointed out that CNN has nearly 50 additional hard pass holders and that Jim Acosta is no more or less special than any other media outlet or reporter with respect to the First Amendment.

Its True: Broward County Has Yet to Start Their Official Recount of Ballots (Video) The Gateway Pundit

Broward County elections supervisor Brenda Snipes

What is going on in Broward County and where is the GOP??

Miami-Dade County was already halfway through its recount of over 800,000 votes by noon Monday, however; Broward County hasnt started yet, according to the Miami Herald.

FOX News previously reported that Broward County started its recounting at around 11:30 AM Sunday 4-and-a-half hours late.

But on Tuesday morning FOX News agreed with the Miami Herald and said the recount in Broward County had not yet started.

Broward County has less ballots to count than Miami-Dadelet that sink in.

Once again Broward County is turning out to be the problem.

Here again is the Monday report from the Miami Herald:

By noon on Monday, Miami-Dade managed to recount about half of the more than 800,000 votes cast in the 2018 election. Broward County had not yet started its state-mandated recount.

The stark contrast in pace from Floridas two largest sources of ballots highlights the pressure facing Broward as it tries to meet a Thursday afternoon deadline to recount the more than 700,000 votes cast in the largely Democratic county.

As of noon Monday, Broward still had to calibrate its ballot-scanning machines and sort out the ballots needed to be counted, suggesting the actual recount may not start until later in the day or even Tuesday morning.

The equally corrupt elections officials in Palm Beach County said Sunday evening that they will not be able to finish their recount by the Thursday deadline either.

Florida Governor Rick Scott took legal action on Sunday in an attempt to get the situation under control as he ramps up his fight going into the recount.

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi stepped in and sent letters to the FDLE and the Se...

Friday Novemeber 9, 2018 5:30pm Annie Marie Delgado, President of TrumpTeam Florida 2020, conference called Ann Vandersteel with a a current DOJ employee and was a former high ranking Broward County law enforcement officer. He stated at 7:00 AM that same morning he received a call from a deputy in the Broward County jail. The Deputy said there was corruption going on inside the jail and that he had never seen anything like it.

Six months prior to this the Supervisor of Elections allowed non-felon inmates awaiting trial in jail to register to vote. This did not occur due to the security risk it posed if civilians were allowed to walk through the jail doing the voter registration and absentee ballot requests.

** It was previously reported that mass murdered Nikolas Cruz was registered to vote from jail in Broward County.

The Broward County Deputy explained that on Thursday November 8, 2018, after the midterm election, absentee ballots were delivered to the jail for the inmates and the deputies were told to pass them out.

Civil rights attorneys arrived on last Thursday and demanded to see the inmates. They were not the inmates personal attorneys of record. The attorneys wanted to know if the inmates had received their absentee ballots in the mail. As these attorneys were not the inmates&#8217...

It's Not About Centrism vs. Progressivism Booman Tribune

Matt Taibbi makes one unassailable point in his latest piece for Rolling Stone. Whenever the Republicans lose they say that their candidates were insufficiently conservative and whenever the Democrats lose the media say that the party needs to move to the middle. Because the Democratic Party leadership tends to listen to the media while the Republican leadership tends to listen to their own propaganda, the result is an inexorable march of American politics to the right. Beyond that, though, his long essay is a tiresome exercise in setting up a false dichotomy based on the flimsy premise that Big Ideas are the answer for everything.

Its fair to question if the media have any real grasp of what defines the middle or what the American people really want. Its fair to argue that the Democrats have tried to move to the middle in the past and have had uneven results at best. But one thing we know about losing campaigns is that the losers needed to get more votes from somewhere. If not from the middle, then from fringes or the apathetic. If not from cities, then from the suburbs. If not from the suburbs, then from the small towns and rural areas. If not from men, then from women. If not from the young, then from the old. If not from Florida, then from Michigan and Wisconsin.

In 2016, Hillary Clinton sought to run up the score in the affluent and well-educated suburbs and she succeeded. The Democrats built on that success in 2017 to make huge gains in Virginia and take back the governors mansion in New Jersey. They built on it again in 2018 to win back the House of Representatives. As far as I can tell, though, this hasnt really been as much a carefully calibrated success based on political messaging as a natural revolt of the educated and civil against whatever the fuck you want to call Trumpism.

It appears that Democratic candidates could use almost any message in the 2018 midterms and win provided that the state or district was at least somewhat invested in the idea that reality has a factual basis. On the other hand, if the education level of the state or district fell below a point certain, the Democrat could curse Pelosi as the devil and call their own party a bunch of loons or pitch Medicare-for-All and the abolition of ICE and none of it would make a lick of difference. They were going to lose.

This isnt the kind of 50-50 split any healthy country should want to see. In 2020, its quite possible that a Democratic contender will figure out how to get the 200,000 or so additional votes Clinton needed in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania to win the presidency, but that wont make them some kind of genius, give them some kind of mandate, or reconcile the other half of the country to their term in office.

Here We Go State of Maryland Files Legal Objection to President Trumps Appointment of Matthew Whitaker as Acting Attorney General The Gateway Pundit

Guest post by Joe Hoft

The Deep State is absolutely terrified of President Trumps appointment to Acting Attorney General, Matthew Whitaker.  Today the state of Maryland announced their legal action into the constitutionality of Whitakers appointment.  The Deep State must have him removed to continue the Mueller witch hunt.

WNYC reported this morning that

President Trumps choice of Matthew Whitaker to be the acting attorney general is running into a buzz-saw of opposition, and not just from Democrats. And now, the first legal action is being filed Tuesday, by the state of Maryland, challenging Whitakers status.

It does not involve limits to asylum claims that Whitaker has already put into effect, nor any challenge involving the Mueller investigation of the president, which Whitaker has frequently criticized.

Maryland and the deep state are trying to get DAG Rod Rosenstein appointed as Acting Attorney General

The state seeks a preliminary injunction that prevents the federal government from responding to the suit while Whitaker appears as acting attorney general. Instead, Maryland requests a declaration that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is the acting attorney general.

Matthew Whitaker, the new Acting AG who replaced Jeff Sessions after Sessions turned in his resignation last Wednesday afternoon, is a former Iowa Hawkeye Tight End in college who played in the Rose Bowl.

Ted Malloch: Macrons Virulent In Your Face Globalism The Gateway Pundit

Guest post by Ted Malloch author of The Plot to Destroy Trump

The clocking is ticking

So says the alarmist headline of the new, so-called peace initiative of French President, Emmanuel Macron, which started this week in Paris.

Noticeably after Macrons ardent anti-nationalist, anti-Trump speech in Paris on Sunday at Armistice Day ceremonies, Donald J. Trump is missing.

See here:

It appears the President of the USA wants nothing to do with this blatantly globalist agenda and its co-conspirators.

He sees through their Anti-American parade.

They are in fact what should be called, liberal fundamentalists, who seek to erode the power of all sovereign nation states and to advocate only more globalism.

A new annual meeting for all global governance actors is on offer, all served up by the new European Napoleon himself, little Emmanuel.

The new Paris Peace Forum is neither a summit nor a conference their literature says.

What is it, then?

It is a new annual event based on a what they refer to as a, simple idea: international cooperation as the key to tackling global challenges and ensuring durable peace.

Who could be against cooperation? We all want and need allies.

But this is not what it is.

They are not true allies and they are ungrateful to America and hate Trump.

Behind the curtain is something elsemuch more sinister.

It is a socialist cabal of Leftists who want to take over the world, install world government with a new fangled name: global governance.

Rules we ALL must live by determined by an unelected elite and led by the French President a new emperor are its centerpiece.

To support collective action, it will gather all actors of global governance under one roof for three days states, international organizations, local governments, NGOs and foundations, companies, experts, journalists, trade unions, religious groups and citizens.

Through original formats of debates and the presentation of solutions, it will demonstrate there is still a momentum for multilateralism and a better organization of the planet, both among states from North and South and civil socie...

Roger Stone: Poor Jerry Corsi Is Being Squeezed But Where is the Russian Collusion? Where is the Wikileaks Evidence Against Me? Or Was This Fake News? The Gateway Pundit

There never was any Trump-Russia collusion.
It was the greatest media hoax in US history.

On Monday journalist Jerome Corsi said he will be indicted by dirty cop Robert Mueller on perjury charges.

The liberal mainstream media wailed and gnashed their teeth like demons after the Trump White House banned loudmouth sideshow Jim Acosta from the White House press pool.

What will they say about journalist Jerome Corsi who is being squeezed by the Mueller mob to invent stories about the president and his associates?
And the liberal media cheers this news.

On Tuesday The Gateway Pundit heard from our friend and conservative stalwart Roger Stone.

Roger had this to say about his friend Jerome Corsi following yesterdays news.

Poor Jerry Corsi. It appears that he has been relentlessly squeezed but refuses to bear FALSE WITNESS against others.

In the meantime where is the Russian Collusion? Where is the proof of Wikileaks collaboration? Where is the evidence that proves I had advance knowledge of the source or content of any of the allegedly stolen or hacked e-mails published by Wikileaks?

Or was that all fake news?

Of course, we all know the answer to that.

It is clear to anyone who has been paying attention that the Mueller-Rosenstein-Sessions witch hunt was put in place to deflect from the lawlessness of the Obama Department of Justice and their historic crimes during the 2016 election when they illegally spied on the opposition candidate.

Pray that justice is served against these traitors in the Obama regime.

The DC swamp must be drained for the country to survive.


Yossi Gestetner posted a thread on Twitter that accurately describes the degree of deception these criminals in the deep state and their allies in the liberal media are pushing on the American people.

Florida is counting and re-counting ballots in several midterm races, including the races for governor and a Senate seat. Republicans lead in those two contests, but as the vote count changes, the GOP victory margins have been narrowing. President Trump and other Republicans say this is electoral fraud, and some have focused on Broward County elections supervisor Brenda Snipes, who is accused even by non-partisan critics of not being very good at her job.

But twice in her tenure Snipes seems to have made misjudgments that cost Democrats votes. That seems to be what's happening now -- and the problem, by coincidence, involves on another black Democratic woman who's been a target of the president's wrath:

... on about 26,000 ballots, voters registered their choice in the governor's race ... but not for Senate. That adds up to about 3.7 percent of all ballots cast in Broward. To put it mildly, that number is radically higher than anything found in any of Florida's 66 other counties, where votes cast in the Senate and gubernatorial races have tracked about evenly.

... Did the design of Broward's ballot cause a small but critical chunk of voters to miss the Senate race?

... A look at the Broward ballot shows that the Senate race occupies a lonely corner, buried in the left column under a lengthy set of instructions. The governor's race, meanwhile, is perched prominently atop the middle column, with wide spacing between the names of all six candidates who qualified to run. There's no question where the eye is more easily drawn.

Then there is this: On the Broward ballot, the Senate race is paired in that lower left column with one other contest, for the House. Broward contains parts of four congressional districts all of them safely Democratic so voters in different parts of the county had different House races on their ballots. But in one of those districts, Rep. Frederica Wilson's 24th Congressional District, there was apparently no House race listed at all. That's because Wilson was running unopposed and Florida law mandates that the race simply not appear on the ballot in such a case, with the sole candidate simply being deemed the winner.

And, as political cartographer Matthew Isbell discovered, in the small portion of Broward County that is part of the 24th District, the number of ballots that contained no vote in the Senate race exploded. Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Pol...

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush Stops Criticizing Trump for a Minute and Condemns Broward County Elections The Gateway Pundit

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Last week, Jeb Bush, the brother of President George W. Bush and the son of President George H. Bush, criticized President Trump for doing what his brother and father never did, stand up to the mainstream media

At the same time the Florida election was being stolen by Democrats in Broward and Palm Beach counties.

President Trump understands that the media are the left wing arm of the socialist Democrat party and he is the first politician with the guts and ability to stand up to these villains

Finally, last night, Jeb decided to opine on the criminal activities taking place in the state where he once was governor, and pause on his bitter comments of the President

This is why Jeb never came close to being elected President of the United States.  He doesnt understand that Democrats are doing all they can to obtain power through stealing elections or through constant attacks from their mainstream media.

Republican Martha McSally was ahead Tuesday evening when the polls closed, but the Democrats produced tens of thousands of ballots out of no where post election.

Jeff Flake may have been a Trump-hating RINO, but he did vote for both of the Presidents SCOTUS nomineesnow Arizona has taken a hard left turn with Sinema.

Democrats took the House in the 2018 midterms and the Republicans held onto the Senatebarely after the Dems launched a campaign to steal the Florida elections.

Mark Levin Says McSally Refused to Go on His Show, Didnt Want to be Tied to Conservatives Then Lost to a Marxist The Gateway Pundit

Marxist Code Pink pro-Taliban activist Kyrsten Sinema was declared the winner today against female fighter pilot Republican Martha McSally in the Arizona senate race.

Martha McSally was a #NeverTrumper before the 2016 election.

She refused to attend the Republican convention.
But Paul Ryan really liked her.

Conservative radio host and author Mark Levin told his audience on Monday that McSally refused to go on his show.

McSally tried to play it safe and moderate.
She ended up with more 200,000 votes less than the Republican candidate for governor.
He embraced Trump.

Whats Wrong With Nationalism? LewRockwell

Shop all books by Pat Buchanan

In a rebuke bordering on national insult Sunday, Emmanuel Macron retorted to Donald Trumps calling himself a nationalist.

Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism; nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism.

As for Trumps policy of America first, Macron trashed such atavistic thinking in this new age: By saying we put ourselves first and the others dont matter, we erase what a nation holds dearest, what gives it life, what makes it great and what is essential: its moral values.

Though he is being hailed as Europes new anti-Trump leader who will stand up for transnationalism and globalism, Macron reveals his ignorance of America.

Trumps ideas are not ideological but rooted in our countrys history.

America was born between the end of the French and Indian War, the Declaration of Independence in 1776 and the ratification of the Constitution in 1788. Both the general who led us in the Revolution and the author of that declaration became president. Both put America first. And both counseled their countrymen to avoid entangling or permanent alliances with any other nation, as we did for 160 years.

Were George Washington and Thomas Jefferson lacking in patriotism?

When Woodrow Wilson, after being re-elected in 1916 on the slogan He Kept Us Out of War, took us into World War I, he did so as an associate, not as an Allied power. U.S. troops fought under U.S. command.

After that war, the U.S. Senate rejected an alliance with France. Under Franklin Roosevelt, Congress formally voted for neutrality in any future European war.

The U.S. emerged from World War II as the least bloodied and least damaged nation because we remained out of the war for more than two years after it had begun.

We did not invade France until four years after France was occupied, the British had been thrown off the Continent, and Josef Stalins Soviet Union had been fighting and dying for three years.

The leaders who kept us out of the two world wars as long as they did did they not serve our nation well, when Americas total losses were just over 500,000 dead, compared with the millions other nations lost?

At the Armistice Day ceremony, Macron declared, By saying we put ourselves first and the others dont matter, we erase what...

Is It Normal? LewRockwell

Its not often that US Government officials are honest when they talk about our foreign policy. The unprovoked 2003 attack on Iraq was called a liberation. The 2011 US-led destruction of Libya was a humanitarian intervention. And so on.

So, in a way, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was refreshingly honest last week when, speaking about newly-imposed US sanctions, he told the BBC that the Iranian leadership has to make a decision that they want their people to eat. It was an honest admission that new US sanctions are designed to starve Iranians unless the Iranian leadership accepts US demands.

His statement also reveals the lengths to which the neocons are willing to go to get their regime change in Iran. Just like then-Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said it was worth it that half a million Iraqi children died because of our sanctions on that country, Pompeo is letting us know that a few million dead Iranians is also worth it if the government in Tehran can be overthrown.

The US Secretary of State has demanded that Iran act like a normal country or the US would continue its pressure until Irans economy crumbles. How twisted is US foreign policy that Washington considers it normal to impose sanctions specifically designed to make life miserable or worse for civilians!

Is it normal to threaten millions of people with starvation if their leaders refuse to bow down to US demands? Is the neoconservative obsession with regime change normal behavior? Is training and arming al-Qaeda in Syria to overthrow Assad normal behavior? If so, then perhaps Washingtons neocons have a point. As Iran is not imposing sanctions, is not invading its neighbors, is not threatening to starve millions of Americans unless Washington is regime-changed, perhaps Iran is not acting normal.

So what is normal?

The continued Saudi genocide in Yemen does not bother Washington a bit. In fact, Saudi aggression in Yemen is viewed as just another opportunity to strike out at Iran. By making phony claims that Yemens Houthis are Iran-backed, the US government justifies literally handing the Saudis the bombs to drop on Yemeni school busses while claiming it is fighting Iranian-backed terrorism! Is that normal?

Millions of Yemenis face starvation after three years of Saudi attacks have destroyed the economy and a Saudi blockade prohibits aid from reaching the suffering victims, but Secretary Pompeo recently blamed Yemeni starvation on, you guessed it: Iran!


Racial Politics LewRockwell

I wasnt closely following the midterm elections campaign, but the results seemed to be about as expected for Donald Trump and the Republicans. With some races still undecided, the Democrats will apparently pick up close to 35 House seats, giving them solid control, and also a half-dozen governorships, while losing at least a couple of Senate seats. These overall Democratic gains seem roughly what might be expected for the first midterm after a Republican presidential victory, but nothing at all like the blue wave that had seemed possible a few months earlier, before the bitter public battle over the Kavanaugh Supreme Court nomination greatly re-energized the Republican base.

Perhaps the loss of the House may actually prove to be a mixed blessing for Trump. Democrats will achieve control of all the investigative committees and their accusations and subpoenas will make Trumps life even more miserable than it was before, while surely removing any chance that significant elements of Trumps remaining agenda will ever be enacted. However, although Trump had reached the presidency by advocating a radical populist-nationalist agenda, he has hardly governed in those terms. For his first two years in office, he sunk nearly all his political capital into enacting huge tax cuts for the rich, wholesale Wall Street deregulation, large increases in military spending, and an extremely pro-Israel foreign policyexactly the sort of policies near-and-dear to the establishment conservative candidates whom he had crushed in the Republican primaries. Meanwhile, his jilted grassroots supporters have had to settle for some radical rhetoric and a regular barrage of outrageous Tweets rather than anything more substantive. With Republicans in full control of Congress, finding excuses for this widespread betrayal was quite difficult, but now that the Democrats have taken the House, Trumps apologists can more easily shift the blame over to them.

Meanwhile, a considerably stronger Republican Senate will certainly ease the way for Trumps future court nominees, especially if another Supreme Court vacancy occurs, and there will be little chance of any difficult Kavanaugh battles. However, here once again, Trumps supposed radicalism has merely been rhetorical. Kavanaugh and nearly all of his other nominees have been very mainstream Republican choices, carefully vetted by the Federalist Society and other conservative establishment groups, and they would probably have been near the top of the list if Jeb Bush or Marco Rubio were sitting in the Oval Office.

Both Trumps supporters and his opponents claim that his presidency represents a drastic break from Republican business-as-usual, and surely that was the hope of many of the Americans who voted for him in 2016, but the actual reality often seems rather different.

Although the net election results were not particularly bad for the Republicans, the implications of several state races seem extr...

Florida Midterm Election Drama LewRockwell

If you havent been following the drama coming out of Floridas Broward and Palm Beach Counties since the Midterm Election polls closed on Tuesday night, I would like to alert you to the fact that it is an event worth paying attention to. Not necessarily because it is a prime example of election fraud, which it certainly is. But more profoundly, because it may become the signature public event that reveals the long-hidden Deep State influence over American politics to Americans at large on both sides of the political divide.

The fact that election laws have clearly been broken is certainly not a first; what is noteworthy is that we have finally reached the time in history in which it is no longer possible for the Deep State to hide their blatant crimes from public scrutiny. And the transparent agenda that is being revealed here reeks of last-chance desperation on the part of the Deep State. Lets first give some context before getting into details.

Context: Midterm Election Results

By Wednesday morning, it had become clear that Democrats had gained control of the House and Republicans had retained control of the Senate. While for many Democrats this initially seemed like a moment for celebration, President Donald Trump lauded the results as a victory for his side. Looking at it from the perspective of Q here, post #2448 from Q-Anon the next day explained why the election results were exactly what the Alliance was looking for in their quest to take down the Deep State:

We are at war.
Think logically.
Why was winning the House majority the primary goal for them?
To this point, what chamber is currently directing the DOJ/FBI investigations?
To this point, what chamber do they feel most threatened by?
While the focus was on the House for them (due to above), our underlying focus was adding PRO_POTUS members to the Senate and safely securing a PRO_MAJORITY.
While we had a senate majority on paper, in reality, we never did, nor could we count on bringing investigations to that body until it was safely in our full control.
Moves & countermoves.

The message here is very clearly stated. In order to begin mass arrests of the Deep State, the Alliance has to remove powerful Deep State assets from the Department of Justice and the FBI. The DOJ/FBI investigations were being conducted by Trey Gowdy and Bob Goodlatte through...

What Group of Smart Kids LewRockwell

If you are a top ability student, but white, especially white male, you have scant chance of being admitted to Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Dartmouth, Cornell, Brown, Penn, Stanford, MIT, CalTech, Berkeley, or UCLA.

The reason whites cannot gain admission is that in the entirety of the Ivy league, Jews are over-represented, relative to the pool of high ability students, by 381%. High ability Asians are under-represented at 62%, and non-Jewish whites are most under-represented of all with a presence in the Ivy League of only 35% of their presence in the pool of high ability students. The Asians are suing Harvard for discrimination, but any such action by whites would be dismissed as an act of white supremacy.

At MIT and Stanford, Jews are also over-represented. At CalTech it is Asians, and at Berkeley and UCLA it is a combination of Jews and Asians. The over-representation is with reference to the pool of high ability students. Equally or better qualified whites are passed over in favor of admission of others.

These are the conclusions of Ron Unz.

Unz reports that in the past three decades, at Harvard the presence of white Gentiles has dropped by as much as 70 percent, despite no remotely comparable decline in the relative size or academic performance of that population; meanwhile, the percentage of Jewish students has actually increased. This period certainly saw a very rapid rise in the number of Asian, Hispanic, and foreign students, as well as some increase in blacks. But it seems rather odd that all of these other gains would have come at the expense of whites of Christian background, and none at the expense of Jews.

It couldnt be more clearly stated that in America white Gentiles are being excluded from the universities that create the elites.

Unz explores the statistics further and concludes:

Based on these figures, Jewish students were roughly 1,000% more likely to be enrolled at Harvard and the rest of the Ivy League than white Gentiles of similar ability. This was an absolutely astonishing result given that under-representation in the range of 20% or 30% is often treated by courts as powerful prima facie evidence of racial discrimination. Furthermore, I noted the possibility that this discrepancy might be related to the overwhelming Jewish dominance of the top administration of those institutions.

It would be unreasonable to ignore the salient fact that this massive apparent bias in favor of far less-qualified Jewish applicants coincides with an equally massive ethnic skew at the topmost administrative ranks of the universities in question, a situation which once again exactly parallels Karabels account from the 1920s. Indeed, Karabel points out that by 1993 Harvard, Yale, and Princeton all had presidents of Jewish ancestry, and the same is true for the current presidents of Yal...

A Return to Barbarism LewRockwell

Prehistoric warfare was total war in which victors normally killed all enemy women, children, and adult males, according to groundbreaking research published by Lawrence H. Keeley, in his book War Before Civilization1.

Keeley wrote that primitive war was always a struggle between societies and their economies, and warriors carried out that struggle. Rome fielded great armies, in historical time, and sometimes killed whole societies that opposed them. The destruction of Carthage is just one example. After Romes decline, Western Europeans preferred to wage war between specialized forces. Initially those were armored noblemen, then mercenaries, and then professionals. Napoleons citizen army signaled the beginning of the widespread impressment by European nations of male civilians into military service.

In The War of the World2, Niall Ferguson noted that, Throughout European history there had been social and institutional as well as technological limitations on war, which limited the mortality rates inflicted by organized conflict. The Thirty Years War was a bloody exception to the generally limited goals for which states fought and to the warfare engaged in by them to reach those goals. The peace treaties that ended those wars normally resulted in minor transfers to victors of a little territory with its population and payment of a moderate indemnity.

Western European nations renounced total war after the Thirty Years War (1618-1648) and fought their wars between uniformed armies and away from major urban areas.

Keeley noted that many military historians claim that Grant and Sherman defined the current rules and doctrines of Western civilized warfare. They were only partly right. Grant, Sherman, and other U.S. generals did conduct total war against the Confederacy, but Lincoln gave them authority and encouragement to do that, and modern, western nations wars against whole societies began again in North America with his war and the U.S. Army.

One example of Lincolns support of total war must suffice here. It began in April 1862, when Col. John Basil Turchin, a former Russian officer, encouraged his regiment, the 19th Illinois Volunteer Infantry and also the 24th Illinois, to commit atrocities against the citizens of Athens, Alabama.

Turchins troops, many drunk, attacked the towns 1,200 residents, and stole from stores and private homes, and burned private buildings. They sexually attacked both black and white women, and civilians that resisted were taken away at bayonet point.  One pregnant white woman miscarried and died after she was gang raped.  I...

World War I Homage LewRockwell

World leaders gathered in Paris on Sunday under the Arc de Triomphe to mark the centennial anniversary ending World War I. In an absurd way, the Napoleon-era arc was a fitting venue because the ceremony and the rhetoric from President Emmanuel Macron was a triumph of lies and platitudes.

Among the estimated 70 international leaders were US President Trump and Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, each sitting on either side of Macron and his wife. German Chancellor Angela Merkel was also given pride of place beside the French president.

Macrons address to the dignitaries was supposed to be a call for international multilateralism. He urged a brotherhood for the cause of world peace. He also made a pointed rebuke of nationalism as posing a danger to peace a remark which seemed aimed at Donald Trump who recently boasted of his politics with that very word.

But, ironically, everything about the ceremony and Macrons speech resonated with jingoistic French nationalism, not his avowed multinationalism. As the politicians sat under the Arc de Triomphe, Macron walked around its circular esplanade in a salute to assembled French military forces bearing assault rifles and bayonets. The French anthem The Marseillaise was played twice, once by an army brass band, the second time sung by an army choir. There was also a military plane flyover displaying the blue, red and white tricolor of the French national flag.

In his speech, Macron talked about soldiers coming from all over the world to die for France during the 1914-18 Great War. He even said at one point that the war was fought for the vision of France and its universal values.

This was fluent drivel, French-style. No wonder Russias Putin momentarily gave a look of boredom as Macron waxed lyrical.

The speechifying and commemoration was completely detached from current realities of conflict and international tensions.

Among the brotherhood whom Macron was appealing to were Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu whose military forces continue to bomb and slaughter Palestinian civilians in illegally occupied territory. Also present was Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko whose armed militias continue to terrorize the people of eastern Ukraine with the blatant objective of instigating a war between the US-led NATO alliance and Russia.

Listening to Macron one would think that World War I erupted mysteriously from no specific cause and that an estimated 10 million soldiers were all killed in heroic battles for noble principles.

There was, of course, no mention by Macron of imperialist warmongering and the barbaric sacrifice of humans as slaves in the service of national capitalist power interests.

Grotesquely, as the world leaders donned solemn faces and mouthed pious platitudes for peace, the whole occasion was a triumph in burying reality and the ongoing causes of wars, as well as whitewashing the very culprit...

Yemeni War Deaths LewRockwell

An NGO responsible for reporting on war deaths in Yemen has acknowledged that it has underestimated the casualties in the three-year-old conflict by at least five to one.

Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project had originally estimated that about 10,000 people had been killed in the war in Yemen, roughly the same number reported by the World Health Organization. WHO surveys are regularly cited as estimates of war deaths in Yemen by UN agencies and the worlds media.  But ACLED now estimates the true number of people killed in Yemen is probably between 70,000 and 80,000.

ACLEDs estimates do not include the thousands of Yemenis who have died from the wars indirect consequences, such as starvation and preventable diseases like diphtheria and cholera. UNICEF reported in December 2016 that a child was dying every 10 minutes in Yemen, and the humanitarian crisis has only worsened since then.  At that rate the total of all deaths caused directly and indirectly by the war must by now be more than one hundred thousand.

Another NGO, the Yemen Data Project, revealed in September 2016 that at least a third of Saudi-led airstrikes, many of which involve U.S.-built and (until Friday U.S.-refueled warplanes) using U.S.-made bombs, were hitting hospitals, schools, markets, mosques, and other civilian targets. This has left at least half the hospitals and health facilities in Yemen damaged or destroyed, according to the Yemen Data Project, leaving them hardly able to treat the casualties of the war or serve their communities, let alone to compile meaningful figures for the WHOs surveys.

Even comprehensive surveys of fully functioning hospitals would capture only a fraction of the violent deaths in a war-torn country like Yemen, where most of those killed in the war do not die in hospitals. And yet the UN and the worlds media have continued to cite the WHO surveys as reliable estimates of the total number of people killed in Yemen.

Dramatically Wrong

In a three-part series for Consortium News in April, I claimed that such estimates of civilian deaths in U.S. war zones were likely to be dramatically wrong because that is what epidemiologists have found whenever they have conducted serious mortality studies...

United We Fall LewRockwell

Unity is not all its cracked up to be.

Everything I said is contained in a single wordcollectivism. And isnt that the god of our century? To act together. To thinktogether. To feeltogether. To unite, to agree, to obey. To obey, to serve, to sacrifice. Divide and conquerfirst. But thenunite and rule. Weve discovered that one at last. Remember the Roman Emperor who said he wished humanity had a single neck so he could cut it? People have laughed at him for centuries. But well have the last laugh. Weve accomplished what he couldnt accomplish. Weve taught men to unite. This makes one neck ready for one leash. We found the magic word. Collectivism.

Ellsworth Toohey to Peter Keating, The Fountainhead, Ayn Rand, 1943

Countless commentators have decried disunity. They fret about our divided nation, warn of impending civil war, and implore us to come together to avert it. Unitys desirability is taken as given, but what if the longed-for unity is that of passengers on a jet plunging into the ocean? A reappraisal of disunity is in order.

Unity was doomed with the passage of the 16th, or Income Tax, Amendment. Its hard to feel any goodwill towards a government that forcibly relieves you of what youve produced, benefitting itself and those to whom it redistributes. The income tax divides the country into makers and takers, a division that cannot be bridged.

For the productive, Unite! is a poisonous bromide, code for: support your own slavery. For a long time they bit their tongues and holstered their weapons as perpetually expanding government and its partner in crime, the Federal Reserve, took an increasing portion of what they produced, made it increasingly difficult to produce, loaded the country with a pile of debt and unfunded liabilities that cannot be paid, and depreciated the unit of exchange. Boxed in, a shrinking minority, the country they and their productive forebears built circling the drain, some are finally realizing they are underwriting their own servitude.

With whom are the productive to unite? The politicians who believe they have first claim on all income, ignore or marginalize anyone who points out that its not their money, and reject accountability for how they spend it? Government employees working paper-shuffling sinecures? A military-industrial-intelligence complex milking perpetual war for all its worth? Rabid recipients demanding still more unearned benefits: higher education, health care, housing, and whatever other goodies to which they feel entitled?

If there were any goodwilla sentiment that promotes unityamong those groups, one would expect gratitude towards those who provide their sustenance. SLL knows of no instance where a taxpayer received a thank you note from a government beneficiary. Even suggesting it would be met with derision from many of them, who believe they have a right to what they recei...

Self-Induced Disaster LewRockwell

Actions have consequences, and bad actions often have bad consequences. In much the same way that liberal policies have burned Venezuelas economy to the ground, California environmentalist policies have unleashed a catastrophic fire that has so far claimed the lives of 11 people and countless animals.

This is what liberal policies always lead to: Destruction, pain, suffering and death.

We pray for those who are suffering through this catastrophe, but above all we pray that the people of California might wake up and realize this disaster is self-inflicted and can be prevented. But that can only happen if dangerous liberal policies that promote these catastrophes are finally stopped.

Years ago, the California government began interfering with local efforts to bulldoze the deadwood out of forests as part of a forest management plan to reduce fire risk. This was all done, of course, under the banner of environmentalism, usually with emotional pleas to save the wildlife by leaving all the forests alone.

Year after year, the deadwood built up. It was only a matter of time, of course, before a fire would be ignited by lightning (Mother Natures natural fire starter). Fueled by the tremendous underbrush that was no longer being cleaned out of the forests, the fires erupted with catastrophic ferocity.

Extreme environmentalists have shut down public access. They talk about habitat, and yet they are willing to burn it up, warned Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke in an interview with KCRA. This has nothing to do with climate change. This has to do with active forest management, he said.

Liberals, you see, dont believe in forest management. They dont want fire breaks to be maintained, and they dont want fire access roads to disrupt forest ecology. So in their effort to prevent humans from having any impact at all on forests, they prevent commonsense management activities from taking place that would help prevent forest fires.

This is how liberals think: They demand authoritarian control so they can create a liberal utopia, but when their ideas are implemented, they deliver absolute Hell.

There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor, tweeted President Trump. And hes right. Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests.

Rock the Vote LewRockwell

It warmed my heart to read in The Wall Street Journal that Hillary Clinton is preparing to re-enter the Washington DC swamp from her deluxe exile in the woods of Chappaqua, New York, and make another run for the White House though its hard to calculate how many porters in sandals and loincloths will be required to lug all her baggage around the campaign trail. Will hubbie hit the hustings with her? That would be rich. I can just imagine the pussy-hatted legions shrieking #MeToo at every stop. Surely there is no better way to put the Democratic Party out of its misery.

The post-election melodramas in Georgia and Florida grind on, despite the various rules and laws about deadlines for certifying ballots and accounting for their origin. What is a ballot after all but a mere scrap of paper, easily reproducible, and interchangeable. Sometimes, they make strange journeys out of election headquarters in trucks and SUVs, seeking fun and excitement, and they have been known to mysteriously turn up by the hundredweight in broom closets where they retreat to caucus. Only one thing is certain: the ballot fiasco is a billable hours bonanza for DC lawyers arriving on the scene to sort things out which they may not manage anyway.

If the vote count somehow remains in favor of the provisional winners Republicans Rick Scott, Ron DeSantis (Fla), and Brian Kemp (Ga) you can be sure well be in a frenzy of sore loserdom that will make the Medieval ergot outbreaks of yore look like episodes of Peewees Playhouse. If the provisional votes get overturned, the attorneys billable hours will quickly exceed the national debt, and well find ourselves in a new era where the free citizens of this republic cant be trusted to the simple task of counting ballots, or even holding elections in the first place.

This epic confusion is of a piece with a prediction I made about what happens to government in The Long Emergency: it becomes impotent and ineffectual, and can no longer be depended on to carry out the simplest tasks. The process goes from the top down. At each step, the public loses faith that government can accomplish anything. The Trust Horizon shrinks away from distant authorities the DC Swamp, the state capitals, and soon the people dont believe anything or anyone they cant reach by throwing a rock.

And so we enter a new stage of collapse. It will be made very much more emphatically worse as the money issues underlying this American malaise unravel in the months ahead. The reason that nothing will be done is that nothing can be done about the countrys intractable technical bankruptcy. The wealth we assumed was there is a fiction and will be expressed in plunging asset values, especially stocks and real estate. And any attempt to fix that by the Federal Reserve and its TBTF handmaidens moving to stop losses will only redirect the destruction to the currency itself. When citizens trust neither gover...

Alkaline Water or Hydrogen Water LewRockwell

Alkaline water is experiencing a resurgence in popularity with sales jumping from $47 million in 2014 to $427 million in 2017.1 Marketers claim alkaline water can correct excess acidity in your tissues, which can then prevent or reverse cancerarthritis and other degenerative diseases.2

However, theres virtually no good evidence to support such claims, and I warned people about drinking alkaline water on a regular basis over eight years ago. Molecular hydrogen, on the other hand, does have a number of health benefits, some of which mirror the claims made for alkaline water and theres a really good reason for that.

So, here, Ill review these two types of waters, and the scientific support (or lack thereof) for each of them, and how the benefits of molecular hydrogen were inappropriately transferred over to alkaline water primarily due to ignorance.

What Is Alkaline Water?

Alkaline water is water that has gone through electrolysis that separates it into alkaline and acid fractions. The theory behind alkaline water is that alkaline (ionized) water is a powerful antioxidant with surplus electrons that can mop up dangerous free radicals. As reported by Arwa Mahdawi in The Guardian:3

Dr. Tanis Fenton, an adjunct professor at the University of Calgary and an evidence analyst for Dietitians of Canada, told me that the marketing claims behind alkaline water are based on an old idea called the acid-ash hypothesis.

This posits that eating certain food like meat, dairy and eggs results in something called acid ash in your body, which increases your acid levels and causes adverse health effects including osteoporosis.

In 2002, an alternative medicine practitioner called Robert O. Young4 spun the acid-ash hypothesis into a fad alkaline diet, with a popular series of books called the pH Miracle.

According to these books, an alkaline diet could treat all manner of woes, from poor digestion to cancer. Young, by the way, was sentenced to three years in jail in 2017 for practicing medicine without a license.

According to Fenton author of a systematic review5 of the association between alkaline water and cancer the few studies showing positive res...

Hillary Clinton Stakes Claim in Florida Begs Voters For Money to Fund Democrat Bill Nelsons Recount Efforts The Gateway Pundit

Hillary Clinton, Perkins Coie partner Marc Elias

Hillary Clinton officially staked her claim in Florida Monday after she launched a fundraising campaign to pay for lawyers and activists to help corrupt Democrat Senator Bill Nelson with his recount efforts.

Hillary Clinton released a memo via her PAC Onward Together Monday begging for money to help Democrats steal the Senatorial election in Florida.

Swamp dweller and Clinton fixer, Marc Elias of Perkins Coie has already been retained by Bill Nelson to help with the recount.

Hillarys memo to her supporters (courtesy of Washington Examiner):

Despite the tweeted complaints of Donald Trump and Rick Scott, the counting of ballots in Florida has continued. The final margin in the races for Senate is too close to call, and the Secretary of State has just ordered a recount.

We need to make sure that Senator Nelsons team has everything they need for this process, and we cannot waste a moment. Make a donation to the DSCCs voter protection efforts while they work to make sure every vote is counted.

What were seeing right now is unprecedented this is the first a full statewide recount in Florida history. Its unbelievable that any elected official wouldnt call for a fair and accurate count of the votes.

The DSCC is currently deploying lawyers and organizers down to Florida to make sure that Senator Nelson has whatever legal support, staff capacity, and voter protection resources he needs to win this fight and investing in their work is the best way you can have an impact. Chip in $25 to defend Democrats like Bill Nelson:

Thank you,


Rumors are swirling Hillary Clinton may announce her 2020 Presidential bid soon.

Clintons fundraising effort in Florida is her first move after her former aide said she would run again in 2020.

Florida Governor Rick Scott (R) is currently ahead of incumbent Bill Nelson, however; Broward County and Palm Beach County continued producing tens of thousands of votes several days after the election which prompted a recount after narrowing both top ticket races.

French President Emmanuel Macron took the opportunity to play politics and hit President Trump and his supporters in his speech.

Macron told the global audience patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism and nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism.
Of course, this nonsensical statement made headlines from Paris to the liberal American mainstream media.

President Trump did not appreciate this public slight.

WTH? Brenda Snipes Reveals Broward Elections Official Was Driving Around with Blank Provisional Ballots in Rental Car (VIDEO) The Gateway Pundit

Broward County elections supervisor Brenda Snipes

Broward County elections supervisor Brenda Snipes gave a press conference Monday afternoon to address the box marked provisional found in a rental car Sunday night.

As previously reported, an Avis employee at Ft. Lauderdale airport found a box labeled with the SOE (Supervisor of Elections) and the word Provisional in the back of the returned car on Sunday night. According to the Avis employee the last person to drive the car was a Broward County employee.

Monday afternoon, Brenda Snipes read the police report detailing what was in the boxes found in the rental car.

Snipes revealed among supplies, blank provisional ballots were inside of the box marked provisional, according to the written police report.

This is to help clarify some of the questions that were raised earlier regarding some boxes that were identified and left in a carI think it was a Budget rental cars that we had during the election cycle, Snipes said.

Brenda Snipes said she notified the Broward County police after finding out about the boxes; the officer who investigated, wrote a report concerning the contents of the box.

He [police officer] identified that there were..theres a grey storage box that was labeled provisional ballot box containing elections supplies and blank provisional ballots, Snipes said.

Another orange box contained campaign signs and orange cones used for parking, according to the police report.

In a stunning display of arrogance, Snipes also rejected the notion that her elections office failed to act in accordance with the law; she even snubbed President Trump.

Colorado Just Had a Real Wave Election-- And National Democrats Need Them To Have Another In 2020 DownWithTyranny!

Colorado just elected a socially liberal, fiscally conservative Democrat as governor; nothing new there. But hes also the the first openly-gay man elected governor in any state. Also the richest Democrat in the House and a member of both the reformist Congressional Progressive Caucus and the Wall Street-owned and operated New Dems. Jared Polis can be almost all things to all people. Last Tuesday he beat Republican Walker Stapleton 1,210,621 (52.3%) to 1,018,072 (44.0%). There was never much doubt that Polis was going to win. And there was even less doubt that politically similar Democrat Joe Neguse would be replacing him in Congress. Neguse beat Republican Peter Yu in the Boulder-centered district 252,220 (60.0%) to 142,617 (33.9%).

The only partisan change in the Colorado congressional delegation was that conservative Democrat Jason Crow beat mainstream conservative Republican Mike Coffman in the suburban Denver 6th district 184,399 (54.1%) to 146,339 (42.9%). So the House delegation went from 3 Democrats and 4 Republicans to 4 Democrats and 3 Republicans, not that big of a chance to merit this headline from the Denver Post: Colorado Republicans conundrum: Donald Trump and the unaffiliated voters who loathe him. Well there was also the legislature. Heading into the election, Republicans had an 18-16-1 majority in the state Senate. Of the chamber's 35 seats, 17 were up for election. Ten were held by Republicans, six were held by Democrats, and one was held by the independent. Democrats won 3 Republican seats and will now control that body. Democrats already controlled the state House and still do. And Democrats replaced Republicans as Attorney General, Secretary of State and Treasurer. Yep wave.

NEVER FORGET: Whistleblower Investigating Fraud in Broward County Shot Himself in the Head But No Gun Was Found The Gateway Pundit

A federal prosecutors body was discovered on a Hollywood, Florida beach in May 2017.

Beranton J. Whisenant, Jr. was handling several visa and passport fraud cases in Debbie Wasserman Schultzs district in Broward County at the time of his death.

He was shot in the head.

Beranton J. Whisenant, Jr.s body was found in May 2017 by a random individual. Local police investigated to determine if Whisenants death was a homicide, suicide, or something else.

Whisenant worked for the U.S. Attorneys Office in Miami in its major crimes unit. He was handling several visa and passport fraud cases in Debbie Wasserman Schultzs district.

Officials later decided Berantons death was a suicide and he shot himself in the head.
But no gun was ever found.

The Sun-Sentinel reported:

Detectives and a medical examiner found Whisenant had shot himself in the head, Hollywood police said.

Police searched for two blocks north and south of the crime scene but couldnt find the gun or any other weapon.

When I woke up this morning, this Wall Street Journal op-ed co-authored by Mark Penn seemed to be the talk of the political Internet:

Hillary Will Run Again

Claims of a Russian conspiracy and the unfairness of the Electoral College shielded Mrs. Clinton from ever truly conceding she had lost. She was robbed, she told herself, yet again. But after two years of broodingincluding at book lengthMrs. Clinton has come unbound. She will not allow this humiliating loss at the hands of an amateur to end the story of her career. You can expect her to run for president once again.
Um, I think if she were determined to run, she'd have an organization in place now, the way several other serious aspirants do. Don't you think?
Expect Hillary 4.0 to come out swinging. She has decisively to win those Iowa caucus-goers who have never warmed up to her. They will see her now as strong, partisan, left-leaning and all-Democratthe one with the guts, experience and steely-eyed determination to defeat Mr. Trump. She has had two years to go over what she did wrong and how to take him on again.
But nearly every pundit I've encountered said that firebrand progressives didn't do all that well in this year's midterms, especially in Middle America. Why is this an approach tailor-made for Iowa?
Mrs. Clinton wont travel the country in a van with Huma Abedin this time, doing small events and retail politics. Instead she will enter through the front door, mobilizing the army of professional women behind her, leveraging her social networks, and raking in donations. She will hope to emerge as an unstoppable force to undo Mr. Trump, running on the #MeToo movement, universal health care and gun control. Proud and independent, this time she will sideline Bill and Mr. Obama, limiting their role to fundraising.

How The Justice Department Uses Law Enforcement Tools Against Journalists Shadowproof

Attorney General Jeff Sessions authorized the Justice Departments attorneys to apply for a warrant in 2017 to search freelance journalist Aaron Cants phone.

Investigators at the Justice Department believed Cant incited violence and acted in concert with protesters accused of destroying property and menacing bystanders in Washington, D.C., on January 20, when President Donald Trump was inaugurated.

Law enforcement authorities intervened and arrested the freelance journalist, among others, and seized his smartphone, which investigators believed contained evidence of the freelance journalists coordination with other protesters, a 2017 annual report from the Justice Department briefly describes. Investigators decided he likely committed crimes while engaged in newsgathering.

Charges against Cant and others were dismissed, as the #J20 cases collapsed and it became clear that prosecutors withheld evidence.

This is one of several examples of the Trump administration questioning, arresting, or charging journalists in its first year in office. It also is one example of the administration seizing the records of members of the news media.

Changes to news media guidelines, which were implemented by Attorney General Eric Holder, committed the Justice Department to publishing reports on how it uses law enforcement tools against journalists.

The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press (RCFP) concluded the overall number of subpoenas and applications for court orders or search warrants do not appear to have fluctuated much in the last four years.

Subpoenas, applications for court orders or search warrants, questioning, arrests, or charges authorized by the deputy assistant attorney general for the Criminal Division under the PPAs suspect exception increased from zero in 2014, to two in 2015, and to four each in 2016 and 2017.

In an editorial for the Santa Fe Reporter, Cant detailed what it was like to be criminalized as an enemy of the people.

To my knowledge, the feds were never able to crack into my phone thanks to strong encryptionthough they made clear that they were specifically interested in me, declaring in one motion from last October [2017] that they were undertaking additional efforts to get my data, Cant wrote. But I was sufficiently terrified by other fishing expeditions, including subpoenas issued to Apple, Facebook, and possibly Twitter for communications between and among co-defendants.

I never received a notice from any of these companies that my accounts had been subpoenaedthough apparently, they do not have...

Conflicting Reports: With Thursday Deadline Looming, Miami Herald Says Broward County Has Still Not Started Recount? The Gateway Pundit

Broward County elections supervisor Brenda Snipes

What is going on in Broward County and where is the GOP??

There are conflicting reports coming out of Broward County right now.

Miami-Dade County was already halfway through its recount of over 800,000 votes by noon Monday, however; Broward County hasnt started yet, according to the Miami Herald.

However, conflicting reports state Broward County started its recounting at around 11:30 AM Sunday 4-and-a-half hours late.

Broward County has less ballots to count than Miami-Dadelet that sink in.

Once again Broward County specifically is turning out to be the problem.

Via Miami Herald:

By noon on Monday, Miami-Dade managed to recount about half of the more than 800,000 votes cast in the 2018 election. Broward County had not yet started its state-mandated recount.

The stark contrast in pace from Floridas two largest sources of ballots highlights the pressure facing Broward as it tries to meet a Thursday afternoon deadline to recount the more than 700,000 votes cast in the largely Democratic county.

As of noon Monday, Broward still had to calibrate its ballot-scanning machines and sort out the ballots needed to be counted, suggesting the actual recount may not start until later in the day or even Tuesday morning.

The equally corrupt elections officials in Palm Beach County said Sunday evening that they will not be able to finish their recount by the Thursday deadline either.

Florida Governor Rick Scott took legal action on Sunday in an attempt to get the situation under control as he ramps up his fight going into the recount.

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi stepped in and sent letters to the FDLE and the Secretary of State Sunday, however; many believe they took too long and the damage is already done.

Genocide Forgotten: Macron Slammed For Inviting Turkish Leader Erdogan to WWI Ceremonies in France The Gateway Pundit

Crucified Armenian women in Der-es-Zor

French intellectuals slammed President Macron for inviting Turkish leader Recep Erdogan to the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I in Paris.

Over 1.5 million Christian Armenians were massacred by the Islamic Ottoman Empire between 1915-1924.

Turkey denies the Armenian Genocide ever happened to this day.

France officially recognizes the Armenian Genocide, so why was Erdogan invited to the World War I memorial?

Via Ahval News:

A group of French intellectuals, politicians, and civil society organisations published a joint letter in Le Monde on Tuesday protesting French President Emmanuel Macron for inviting Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoan to participate in the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One in Paris on Nov. 10-11.

The group said that the events were meant to express a joint will to prevent a repetition of the horrors of World War One and reminded that, accordingly, the lyse Palace indicated that the events will be organised as a peace forum rather than a military parade.

The letter said that Erdoan perpetuated the Turkish states denial of the Armenian genocide, the extermination of reportedly 1.5 million Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire in 1915, adding that peace could not be established by complacency towards crimes in the past.

Tigran Mkrtchyan, Ambassador of Armenia to Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia posted a graphic showing the devastating loss of Armenian life and land at the hands of the Ottoman Empire.

MUSLIMS Storm Jewish Kristallnacht Remembrance Vigil in London Start Screaming About Killing Jews (VIDEO) The Gateway Pundit

On November 7th a vigil was held by pro-Israel activists in London on Speakers Corner in Hyde Park. A few dozen activists with Israel Advocacy Movement gathered there ahead of the anniversary of Kristallnacht, the 1938 Nazi pogrom in Germany and Austria.

But the vigil was shut down when angry Muslims stormed in screaming about killing Jews.

The Muslims were screaming about the Khaybar, a historic event mentioned in the Koran when Muslims slaughtered hundreds of Jews in the seventh century.

The Jewish group decided at that point to call off their vigil.
They appeared to be outnumbered about 4 to 1 by the Muslims.

JTA reported:

A vigil held by pro-Israel activists in London for Jews murdered in Arab countries was dispersed after men shouted in Arabic about killing Jews.

The event by the Israel Advocacy Movement was held Wednesday on Speakers Corner in Hyde Park, which is known for its culture of free speech and passionate street preachers championing various causes.

A few dozen people holding Israeli flags and candles gathered there ahead of Kristallnacht, the 1938 Nazi pogrom in Germany and Austria, to highlight the suffering and slaying around the same time of many hundreds of Jews who were killed and wounded in pogroms across the Arab world.

Joseph Cohen, an Israel Advocacy Movement activist, filmed the event as about 20 men drowned his talk shouting Jews, remember Khaybar, the army of Muhammad is returning.

The cry relates to an event in the seventh century when Muslims massacred and expelled Jews from the town of Khaybar, located in modern-day Saudi Arabi...

"Moderate" Is A Valued Political Term-- But What Does It Mean And Who Gets To Define It? DownWithTyranny!

America's most popular political leader is pushing positions popular with voters but not with billionaires
The word "moderate" is more popular with voters than words like "liberal" or "conservative," and politicians always try to claim the word for their own agenda (which is rarely much more than careerist). The Republicans-- and their media allies-- relentlessly define their reactionary agenda as "moderate." Repeating a lie often and passionately enough, especially with lots of money behind that lie, will make it so. Even Democrats, who have issues on their side, start too believe the GOP definition of "moderate." And the members of Congress referred to as "moderates" always seem to be the Wall Street-owned New Dems and right-of-center Blue Dogs who make up the foot-dragging Republican wing of the Democratic Party. Their policy agenda is set by their corporate donors and they ruin the progressive agenda and the Democratic Party brand. Remember, it was the New Dems and Blue Dogs who ruined Obamacare by killing the public option. Republicans had no seat at that table. And that decision brought on the 2010 debacle that gave us close to 2 decades of reactionary rule and, ultimately, Donal Trump.

Corrupt Democrat Bill Nelson Calls on Gov. Rick Scott to Recuse Himself From Florida Recount Process The Gateway Pundit

Dem Florida Senator Bill Nelson

Democrat Bill Nelson, the incumbent candidate running for US Senate is calling on his opponent, the current Governor of Florida Rick Scott, to recuse himself from the recount process.

Bill Nelson accused Governor Rick Scott of undermining the votes of Floridians, but didnt say a word about Broward County elections supervisor Brenda Snipes who is blatantly defying a judges orders and refusing to count votes in accordance with the law.

Via Fox 35 Orlando:

On Monday, Bill Nelson called for Rick Scott to recuse himself from any role in Floridas recount process, as the supervisors of elections across the state begin a mandatory machine recount of more than 8.2 million ballots cast in this years U.S. Senate race.

[Rick Scott] should remove himself from any role in the recount process so the people can have confidence in the integrity of the election, Nelson said in a video statement released by his campaign. Given his efforts to undermine the votes of Floridians, this is the only way that we can ensure that the peoples votes are protected.

Nelson went on to say that Scott is using his power as governor to try to undermine the voting process  and that his recent actions make clear that he cannot oversee this process in a fair and impartial way.

On Sunday, Florida Governor Rick Scott (R) filed two emergency motions in Broward County and Palm Beach County as he ramped up his legal fight going into the recount.

What's a Morally Appropriate Response to Climate Deniers? DownWithTyranny!

A small part of a much larger infographic showing our bright bright technical future. None of this will happen.

by Gaius Publius

What's a morally appropriate response to climate deniers?

What's a morally appropriate response to those who enable mass murder?

This short piece is the start of a much longer consideration of the state of the U.S. at this crossroads moment. It's an odd state. I remember the Y2K explosion of fear and concern, that there may be a global collapse due to computers not having been told that the year portion of a date contains four digits, not just two. Many computers stored the year as two digits, for example, as "68" for 1968. That works until 1999. What would happen when all those computers, if they weren't fixed, rolled the date to January 1, 2000? Would they all be fixed?

Y2K fear was in all the newscasts of the day, and appropriately so. No one knew what would happen, and if the very worst did occur, it could indeed have been a disaster. It wasn't, but we sure heard about it.

When it comes to global warming, however, at the rate we're fixing the problem which is achingly slow, the slowest rate anyone can manage and still be pretending to care there will be a global disaster. And yet there's been nary a peep from the media or any public official in position to act effectively.

Newscasters talk about driverless cars in 2030; about cheap, widespread DNA-inspired nanotech in 2033; about designer molecules from "superatoms" in 2036; an unhackable quantum internet; a feast of wonders at the next stage of culture and development. (See graphic at this link for all of these technologies.) And none of that will happen unless the disaster we're headed for is avoided. Any movie set in 2030, that doesn't have global chaos as its backdrop, is set on a planet none of are living on, unless we effectively address global warming now.

If a meteor were approaching the earth, the will of the world would be bent toward salvation. Global warming is that meteor. No one with any power is acting appropriately.

Those with power, of course, are paid not to act. For example:...



The president wants the vote counting in Florida to be stopped:

The president tweeted [this morning] that the results from Election Night should be accepted and both Republican candidates, Gov. Rick Scott, who's running for U.S. Senate against Sen. Bill Nelson, and former Rep. Ron DeSantis, who's running for governor against Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, should be declared the winners of their respective races.

But the president's desire to use results from Election Night, which he tweeted on Veterans Day, would disenfranchise many voters whose ballots are counted after Election Day, including voters serving overseas in the military....

Additionally, there is no evidence that ballots "showed up out of nowhere," but rather ballots continued to be counted days after the election -- largely mail-in, absentee and provisional ballots in slow counties like Broward and Palm Beach, which lean Democrat. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement, or FDLE, has no open investigations into any claims of potential fraud, ABC News confirmed Sunday afternoon.
Tom Pepinsky, a Cornell political science professor, believes that this is a terrible change for the worse in America:
It is now the official White House position that constitutionally-mandated recounts are illegitimate.

... this development is ... almost incalculably bad for American democracy. I now assume that a substantial minority of Americans believe that the results of the elections in Florida, Georgia, Arizona, and California are democratically illegitimate unless the Republican candidate wins....

When electoral procedures lose popular legitimacy, it is nearly impossible to get that legitimacy back. Elections are one great way of building popular legitimacy, and if by assumption they no longer do, what will?

... The downstream consequences from the loss of electoral legitimacy are nearly impossible to predict. I suspect that one consequence will be an ever-greater tolerance for executive malfeasance, on the logic that Congressio...

Georgia Democrat Abrams Files Lawsuit After Thousands of New Absentee, Early and Election Day Votes Discovered in Several Counties on Saturday The Gateway Pundit

Theyre going to steal Georgia too.

Georgia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is now suing to delay vote certifications after the Democrat party mysteriously found thousands of votes over the weekend.

Via Associated Press:

ATLANTA | Stacey Abrams Democratic campaign filed a federal lawsuit Sunday asking a judge to delay vote certifications in Georgia unsettled governors race by one day and to make officials count any votes that were wrongly rejected.

If successful, the suit would prevent officials from certifying county vote totals until Wednesday and could restore at least 1,095 votes that werent counted. The campaign said thousands more ballots could be affected.

Republican Brian Kemps campaign didnt have any immediate comment on the lawsuit, filed over alleged problems in populous Gwinnett and DeKalb counties in metro Atlanta. But Kemp aides previously said Abrams has no path to victory and called her refusal to concede a disgrace to democracy.

Abrams campaign manager, Lauren Groh-Wargo, said the states numbers cant be trusted and that 5,000 votes came in Saturday that previously were unknown.

This race is not over, she said on a conference call with reporters. Its still too close to call.

Ariel Ricker, Executive Director of Advocates Abroad, was caught in the recordings admitting that the asylum process is simply theatre.

This is all like a big theatre production, everyone has a part to play and a refugee has to act the part of the refugee in trauma for the interviewers, but it is extremely difficult to do this because unless they are taught how to be this character, this actor, then they go about it usually the opposite way, Ricker says.

Rickers NGO, Advocates Abroad, provides legal aid to refugees and migrants seeking asylum in Europe. They have 380 staff members that are primarily involved in preparing refugees and migrants for their asylum interviews. In 2017, they worked with over 15,000 refugees. Southerns team points out that they also recently campaigned with 12 British MPs to raise $100,000 in donations.

In the shocking undercover video, Ricker also admits to teaching the migrants how to cry, to act the part of the refugee in trauma and even throw up to show extreme emotion.

Oh yeah, yeah. I see it like, I tell them that this is acting, all of this is acting [] its all acting as though this is theatre. So for them to get through they must act their part in the theatre and that is the refugee in trauma, because these EASO officers are so fucking stupid all they know is whats written on the paper, EASO says this is refugee in trauma, they have these characteristics so we coach people how to have these characteristics, Ricker admits.

Ricker explains that they do role-playing, where they act like the refugee and the migrant plays the officer. This way they can see how they are supposed to act.

They also admit to teaching the migrants to pretend to be Christian and how to pretend to pray.

They also ask like whats your favourite holiday, some people say like Christmas and but like we explain you cannot just say this because this is not a sufficient answer, you have to say, you have to say it a certain way which is like December 25th which is Christmas, which is the birthday of our Lord and Saviour,' Ricker explains.

It gets worse.

Ricker explains that she has come up with a formula o...

BREAKING: Broward Judge Denies Rick Scott Request to Impound Voting Machines The Gateway Pundit

FL Governor Rick Scott

On Monday, a Broward County judge denied Florida Governor Rick Scotts request for an injunction to impound and secure all voting machines when they are no longer being used to count ballots.

On Sunday, Florida Governor Rick Scott (R) filed two emergency motions in Broward County and Palm Beach County as he ramped up his legal fight going into the recount.

Governor Scott also took legal action to bar the Broward County canvassing board from counting ballots produced after the Saturday noon deadline previously ordered by a judge.

One of the motions filed by Scott was a request to impound voting machines when they are not in use.

A Broward judge denied Scotts request and offered an alternative compromise.

Via Tampa Bay Times:

A Broward judge on Monday turned down Gov. Rick Scotts request to impound and secure all voting machines in Browards elections headquarters when theyre not being used to recount ballots.a

But Circuit Judge Jack Tuter offered a compromise: Add three Broward Sheriffs deputies to the current lineup of BSO officers and private security guards overseeing the recount under way at the countys elections center in Lauderhill.

Tuter stopped short of granting the Scott campaigns request for an injunction to impound the machines, but agreed with his lawyers that there needs to be an additional layer of confidence in the vote-recount system in Broward. The votes in the U.S. Senate race between Scott and incumbent Bill Nelson are part of the recount.

Tuter asked the lawyers representing Scotts campaign and attorneys for Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes to come back by 1 p.m. Monday with a plan that would assign the three additional BSO deputies to protecting the voting machines and ballots during the recount of races for U.S. Senate, Floridas governor and state agriculture commissioner.

German Government Opens Discussion on Having Secret Police Spy on Right-Wing Opposition Party The Gateway Pundit

Angela Merkels government is now opening discussion into having the interior secret service, the Office for the Protection of the Constitution (Verfassungsschutz), spy on the Alternative for Germany (AfD) the biggest opposition party in the nation.

Germany has a long tradition of suppressing political opposition by using secret police from the Nazi Gestapo to the East German Stasi.

Participants vote during the Alternative for Germany (AfD) two-day party congress in Augsburg, Germany, June 30, 2018. REUTERS/Michaela Rehle

Hans-Georg Maaen, the Conservative head of the Verfassungsschutz, argued against the surveillance, as there is no evidence that the AfD endangers the constitution. He has now been forced out of office.

In May, Merkel claimed that mobs were hunting down foreigners of the streets of Chemnitz over the killing of a young German man by refugees. Hans-Georg Maaen called her out on her lie, publicly declaring that there is no evidence anyone was hunting down anyone from Chemnitz. He was subsequently forced to step down.

During his time in office, Hans-Georg Maaen was extremely effective, managing to prevent seven major terror attacks since 2015. The AfD believes that he will now be replaced by someone who is more concerned with spying on political opponents than stopping terrorism.

The AfD has been repeatedly accused of being far-right or even neo-Nazis for political means, much like Trump supporters so often are here in the United States. The AfD emphatically denies these allegations.

However, AfD MP Petr Bystron, a Czech refugee from Communism, was surveilled by the Bavarian Verfassungsschutz over a Facebook post where he called protests by the Identitarian Movement...

Ted Malloch: What Happened to CNN? The Gateway Pundit

Guest: Ted Malloch author of Davos, Aspen & Yale

Atlanta was a quaint Southern town, but it was metamorphosing into something very different and more impressive by 1992 when I was first engaged with CNN.

They were getting cosmopolitan and downright worldly.

They had won the Olympic bid scheduled for 1996 (secured by Andrew Young atyou guessed itDavos).

Segregation was over and grits were hard to find.

One company had come to personify the newfound swagger and embodied the spirit of the New South.

That company started as a small-fry radio station with a big signal and had grown into the powerhouse and the most-watched network on cable television.

Its format was unheard-of: All News, All the Time.

Boy, has that changed!

After the Gulf War, Ted Turner, their cocky CEO and founder, bragged that he had won.

CNN represented raw media power, as it had never been witnessed before.

When you met Turner, the smile, the pencil moustache, and the ability to speak his mind, he instantly mesmerized you.

I went to dinner a few times with him and (Hanoi) Jane Fonda, who looked far younger than her age and had lots of plastic all over her body, to boot.

In their upscale Bugatti restaurant we had bison steaks and talked about his growing empireworldwide.

Turner could get mad as hell and was even known to throw phones, but when he wanted something, he went after it like an untamed Georgia bulldog.

He invited me to a Braves game and we sat in the dugout, and when Chipper Jones hit a home run to win the game, they brought him the ball and he gave it to me.

Tom Johnson ran CNN, and he was a senior TV journalist who had been Lyndon Johnsons press secretary. He was a class act and a real journalist. He was also mentally ill, as he later divulged in a most honest account of manic depression.

He knew his way around Washington but was often hidden away as if he were battling something.

It turns out he washis own deep depression.

My main point of contact at CNN was the colorful and ego-driven, Lou Dobbs. His star was ascending, and he wanted Ted to make him president of CNNfn.

He was, in other words, as Lou often does, posturing.

He thought a lot of himself, and his people in New York at the offices across from Penn Station were both afraid of him...

VIDEO: Broward County Police Officers Uninterested Would Not Pick Up Ballot Box Left in Avis Rental Car The Gateway Pundit

On Sunday night an Avis employee at Ft. Lauderdale airport found a box labeled with the SOE (Supervisor of Elections) and the word Provisional in the back of the returned car.

According to the Avis employee the last person to drive the car was a Broward County elections employee.

Richard DeNapoli tweeted out a photo of the election boxes left in the car.

DeNapoli discovered who the car was rented to Noah Holliman a Democrat who works at the Broward Supervisor of Elections.

Laura Loomer and Jacob Engels were tipped off and drove to the airport but were denied entry.

On Sunday night Richard DeNapoli took video from the Ft. Lauderdale airport where the election worker dropped off his Avis rental car.

DeNapoli says the Broward Police Departement showed NO INTEREST in collecting the ballot box.

President Trump: Florida Election Should Be Called for Scott and DeSantis Large Numbers of New Ballots Showed Up Out of Nowhere The Gateway Pundit

On election night last Tuesday Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis easily won their races in Florida.

By Saturday Scotts lead went from 83,000 to 12,562 votes in the Florida Senate race.
Desantiss lead also shrunk by tens of thousands of votes.

On Tuesday Broward County Elections supervisor Brenda Snipes reported 634,000 votes were cast in the midterm election in her county.

On Friday morning Broward County Elections officials now say 717,000 votes were cast in the midterm election.

Broward County Democrats have mysteriously found 83,000 votes in two days!

ALL Florida counties met the latest deadline on Saturday at noon to turn over their election totals.

Governor Rick Scott leads Sen. Nelson by 12,562 votes after three days of of Broward and Palm Beach County ballot manufacturing operations.
This is down from his 80,000 vote lead on election night.

Massive voter fraud is being witnessed by observers in both Palm Beach County and Broward County.

The Democrats are going to steal Florida if Republicans dont put up a fight.

The Democrats have already stolen Arizona, Montana, several Congressional seats in California and they are working on stealing Georgia as well.

There are Still 7 House Seats Too Close to Call All Republican Will GOP Leaders Allow Democrats to Steal These Seats Too? The Gateway Pundit

Guest post by Joe Hoft

(pic from

As of this morning there are still seven US House Seats that are too close to call.  All of these seats were held by the GOP before the election.  What are the odds the Democrats steal them all?

Ballotpedia reports this morning seven US House seats from last weeks 2018 mid-terms that are too close to call

All of these seats have one thing in common they are currently held by Republicans.  After recent events in close races throughout the country, what are the odds that these seats stay GOP?

We know that in Florida in the Senate and Governor races, after delays and unconstitutional actions, Broward and Palm Beach Counties are still counting votes.  Numerous corrupt and criminal actions have already been reported this election cycle and this is not new for these Democrat led strongholds.  One Broward County employee even filled out an affidavit claiming seeing Broward County elections staff filling out blank ballots.

In New Mexico, a GOP Representative was declared the winner on election night.  Within 24 hours after 8,000 votes appeared out of nowhere, the Democrat had stolen the election and was declared the winner.

Whenever there are close elections, they almost always go to the Democrats who will do all they can to win.  These 7 House seats will likely be no exception!

Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith of Mississippi believes she's being misunderstood:

A newly published video shows a white Republican U.S. senator in Mississippi praising someone by saying: "If he invited me to a public hanging, I'd be on the front row."

... The video ... shows a small group of white people clapping politely for Hyde-Smith after a cattle rancher introduced her.

"I referred to accepting an invitation to a speaking engagement," said Hyde-Smith ... in a statement Sunday. "In referencing the one who invited me, I used an exaggerated expression of regard, and any attempt to turn this into a negative connotation is ridiculous."

Mike Espy, Hyde-Smith's opponent in the runoff, was the first black person since Reconstruction to win a House seat from Mississippi.

I'll give Hyde-Smith this much: She's saying she'd do even unpleasant things for the man who invited her. You can tell from the first part of the clip. Her words are hard to hear, but what she seems to say about the man who invited her is this:
I would fight a circle saw for him.
I'm a Yankee and Id never encountered that expression before, but it's real. Here are a few places where it shows up.



Not Much Interest in the Economy bensozia

Robert Samuelson:

One lesson of the midterm elections is that economic growth is losing its power to unite the country and to reduce explosive conflicts over race, religion, ethnicity, immigrant status and sexuality. . . .

Despite many problems, the economy in 2016 seemed strong enough to put Hillary Clinton in the White House. When voters went to the polls, the unemployment rate was 4.6 percent, annual inflation was only 1.7 percent and median household income had increased 5 percent in 2015 from 2014. Nope, not enough.

Similarly and despite the usual midterm bias against the party of the incumbent president the economy seemed healthy enough to help Republicans retain control of the House in last weeks election. Unemployment was lower than in 2016 (3.7 percent), inflation was only a tad higher (2.3 percent). Median income has continued to advance. Nope, not enough.
It does strike me as interesting that the economy did not help Republican more this time, but that is hardly new: Nixon beat the sitting vice president in 1968, a year of economic boom, because the Vietnam War and cultural upheaval overwhelmed economic concerns. Which makes me wonder: what is it about our time that is intensifying political divisions? We have no issue like the Vietnam War to fuel the fires, but partisan hatred seems to be at record levels.

Some liberals think the underlying issue is white angst about becoming a minority, exacerbated by having a black man in the White House. I remain unconvinced; it just doesn't seem to me that racism is any worse than it has been throughout my lifetime. There is certainly economic uncertainly and unfairness, but, again, this does not seem to me to have gotten worse, and if this were the driver you would think our current economic boom would help.

I keep going back to the intense, widespread anxiety that seems to pervade our society. I find this deeply mysterious; I just can't see any reason why more people should be crippled by anxiety than ever before. If somebody figured out that the cause was some ubiquitous chemical, I would not be surprised, because nothing else makes sense to me. But wherever it comes from I think that when added to our already existing partisan divides over race, sex, sexuality, the economy and so on the result is the level of hate and fear that we suffer from now.

Ted Lieu Is Not Running For President... But Everyone Else Is DownWithTyranny!

I am certain that Ted Lieu is not running for president because:
1- Ted and his wife want him to spend weekends with his two young sons and you cant do that when youre running for president
2- Teds parents brought him to the U.S. from Taiwan when he was a child, making him constitutionally ineligible to be president.
Ted is virtually the only member of Congress whos made a name for himself who isnt running, or at least floating trial balloons about running. I have an idea that Bernie may make his announcement later in the month which could make some of the minor candidates back down. I hope so. As Ive mentioned before, I have persuaded myself that Im entitled to have one great president in my lifetime and I dont see an alternative, not now and not on the horizon. And think how fabulous it would be for the country and how needed after the worst and I hesitate to use the word president in history, bar none.

As Netanyahu Cuts Short Paris Trip, Additional Questions Are Raised About Trumps Fear Of Rain Mining Awareness +

The abiding mystery: Is Trump, who is the son of a mother born and bred in the windy, rainy, Outer Hebrides of Scotland, so afraid of rain that he was unable to go to a US war cemetery in France on Saturday, for World War I Armistice Day commemorations? Or was this an excuse to have the meeting with Putin that he had previously planned, and/or Netanyahu? Possibly a secret trilateral meeting between Trump, Putin, and Netanyahu?

Trump and Netanyahu have been friends since the 1980s, when Netanyahu was friends with Trumps father. Trumps son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and his son-in-laws parents were also friends with Netanyahu. Trump and Netanayahu also share a mutual campaign donor in the form of Sheldon and Miriam Adelson.

To be fair, we dont know the temperature at this golf game, nor if it was actively raining. Maybe it was colder in France


Woolsey Fire Burns Nuclear Meltdown Site that State Toxics Agency Failed to Clean Up Mining Awareness +

News Release from Physicians for Social Responsibility LA:
Woolsey Fire Burns Nuclear Meltdown Site that State Toxics Agency Failed to Clean Up
Nov 9, 2018
For Immediate Release: November 9, 2018
Last night, the Woolsey fire burned the contaminated Santa Susana Field Laboratory (SSFL), a former nuclear and rocket engine testing site. Footage from local television showed flames surrounding rocket test stands, and the fires progress through to Oak Park indicates that much of the toxic site burned.

A statement released by the California Dept. of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) said that its staff, do not believe the fire has caused any releases of hazardous materials that would pose a risk to people exposed to the smoke. The statement failed to assuage community concerns given DTSCs longtime pattern of misinformation about SSFLs contamination and its repeated broken promises to clean it up.

We cant trust anything that DTSC says, said West Hills resident Melissa Bumstead, whose young daughter has twice survived leukemia that she blames on SSFL and who has mapped 50 other cases of rare pediatric cancers near the site. Bumstead organized a group called Parents vs. SSFL and launched a petition demanding full cleanup of SSFL that has been signed by over 410,000 people. DTSC repeatedly minimizes risk from SSFL and has broken every promise it ever made about the SSFL cleanup. Communities throughout the state have also been failed by DTSC. The public has no confidence in this troubled agency, said Bumstead.

Nuclear reactor accidents, including a famous partial meltdown, tens of thousands of rocket engine tests, and sloppy environmental practices have left SSFL polluted with widespread radioactive and chemical contamination. Government-funded studies indicate increased cancers for offsite populations associated with proximity to the site, and that contamination migrates offsite over EPA levels of concern. In 2010, DTSC signed agreements with the Department of Energy and NASA that committed them to clean up all detectable contamination in their operational areas by 2017. DTSC also in 2010 committed to require Boeing, which owns most of the site, to cleanup to comparable standards. But the cleanup has not yet begun, and DTSC is currently considering proposals that will leave much, if not all, of SSFLs contamination on site permanently.

Dr. Robert Dodge, President of Physicians for Social Responsibility-Los Angeles, shares the communitys concerns. We know what substances are on the site and how hazardous they are. Were talking about incredibly dangerous radionuclides an...

Midnight Meme Of The Day! DownWithTyranny!

by Noah

This is indeed your brain on FOX News! Remember that van Trump's pipe bomber fan had? Check this out! In the republican mind, this is a great ride! Think of the generations of inbreeding and meth use that goes into things like this. How much you wanna bet that it also serves as a home school for the kids! You know, the kids with fetal alcohol brain damage.

Seriously, though, in Germany in the 1920 and 1930s, it was a common practice for Nazi Party and Hitler supporters to decorate their vehicles in this exact way, and look where that went. Now that the midterm elections are done, the 2020 campaign season has begun. Can we expect to see more and more of these? As Sarah Palin (remember her?) would say, "You betcha!"

In looking at a blow up of this photo very closely, I think I can make out Sarah Huckabee Sanders behind the wheel. I could be wrong. It might be her dad.

Trump Rains On The Parade In Paris DownWithTyranny!

Trump made an ass of himself on the international stage again and disgraced our country, as he always does. Hes a hateful little turd who thinks he can bully foreign leaders the way he bullies the cowardly careerists in his own party. He respects Putin even seems to genuinely like him and no one else.

Jonathan Swan reported this evening that hes as jazzed as ever about hitting foreign-made cars with steep tariffs. Just about every member of his senior economic team besides Peter Navarro believes this is a terrible idea. But they havent swayed him. With each passing month, his zest for car tariffs only swells. Trump now views the threat of car tariffs as his best leverage over negotiating partners. He has privately told aides that he got a better trade deal with Canada because he threatened Prime Minister Justin Trudeau with car tariffs. And he says the same about the Europeans, according to sources briefed on his thinking Trade law dictates that Defense Sec. James Mattis must provide a national security justification for any new auto tariffs. A source who spoke to Mattis more than a month ago said he was deeply skeptical about the idea, worrying that big new car tariffs could further strain relationships with allies. Mattis has not, however, made any final decision.

And speaking of bullying, , which is sees as a foreign colony and cant seem to conceive as an integral part of the U.S., a product of his lifelong prejudice and ugly bigotry and racism. He doesn't want to give Puerto Rico any more federal money for its recovery from Hurricane Maria, White House officials have told congressional appropriators and leadership. This is because he claims, without evidence, that the islands government is using federal dis...

America Goes to War LewRockwell

[Great Wars and Great Leaders: A Libertarian Rebuttal (2010)]

With the onset of war in Europe, hostilities began in the North Atlantic which eventually provided the context or rather, pretext for Americas participation. Immediately, questions of the rights of neutrals and belligerents leapt to the fore.

In 1909, an international conference had produced the Declaration of London, a statement of international law as it applied to war at sea. Since it was not ratified by all the signatories, the declaration never came into effect. However, once war started the United States inquired whether the belligerents were willing to abide by its stipulations. The Central Powers agreed, providing the entente did the same. The British agreed, with certain modifications, which effectively negated the declaration.1 British modifications included adding a large number of previously free items to the conditional contraband list and changing the status of key raw materials most important of all, food to absolute contraband, allegedly because they could be used by the German army.

The traditional understanding of international law on this point was expounded a decade and a half earlier by the British prime minister, Lord Salisbury:

Foodstuffs, with a hostile destination, can be considered contraband of war only if they are supplies for the enemys forces. It is not sufficient that they are capable of being so used; it must be shown that this was in fact their destination at the time of the seizure.2

That had also been the historical position of the US government. But in 1914 the British claimed the right to capture food as well as other previously conditional contraband destined not only for hostile but even for neutral ports, on the pretense that they would ultimately reach Germany and thus the German army. In reality, the aim was, as Churchill, First Lord of the Admiralty candidly admitted, to starve the whole population men, women, and children, old and young, wounded and sound into submission....

Whats Worse Than Antiwar Propaganda on Veterans Day? LewRockwell

Shop all books by Tom Woods

Pro-war propaganda.

A fellow I do a fair amount of business with posted on social media today that this is not a day for antiwar propaganda.


Veterans Day was originally Armistice Day, in commemoration of the cessation of hostilities in World War I. The armistice took effect in the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, in 1918.

For four years, Europe tore itself apart, and sent millions of men into a meat grinder for no good reason. Tens of thousands would die, and the front would move a matter of yards.

Especially on this hundredth anniversary of the original Armistice Day, how does anyone seriously expect to honor the fallen without any discussion of the madmen who sent them into this horror?

Did their deaths occur in some abstract realm, outside time, space, and causation?

Or were they killed in specific ways, under orders from particular people?

Anyone speaking in mere platitudes today is an enemy of mankind.

The left-liberals and neoconservatives alike, who always seem to put aside their pretend differences when an idiotic war is in the offing, and who make saccharine speeches about democracy and openness and peace, are enemies of mankind.

As a reminder of how deranged our cultural elite and political establishment are, how many major political figures of the past hundred years have been dismissed from polite society for urging too much war?

There are lots of things that get you demonized and ostracized in America, but that aint one of them.

Usually it gets you called a statesman.

This is deranged.

Especially on Veterans Day should we speak out against war and the lying propagandists who foment them.

And the state cheerleaders who make excuses for them. (Why, Saddam really did have WMDs! etc.)

The Prevalence of Myth Over History LewRockwell

Today (Nov. 9) I heard a black historian on NPR say that the civil war was fought in order to establish a framework for human rights.

He also said that black civil rights achieved by the war were overturned by the rollback of Reconstruction, put back in place by the 1964 Civil Rights Act, and was now being overturned again by Trumps response to the caravan from Honduras.

As best as I could tell, this was an Identity Politics explanation of history with all of its contradictions and factual errors.

Identity Politics is based on the accusation that the white male is a racist and a misogynist. This is inconsistent with the belief that Washington, totally in the hands of white males, chose to fight a bloody civil war in order to bring human rights to black slaves. If white males are this idealistic and willing to make such a sacrifice for blacks, how is it that the white males are racists?

The black historian cant have it both ways.

Moreover, how would the black historian explain how it possibly can be that the same Union army that fought to bring human rights to black slaves immediately on wars end was sent under the same generals, Sherman and Sheridan, to slaughter the Plains Indians. Why did the Union army fight for human rights for blacks and against human rights for native American Indians?

As every competent historian knows, there was no civil war. A civil war is when two sides fight for control of the government. The southern states had seceded and formed their own country. The Confederacy had no interest in controlling Washington. The war happened because Lincoln invaded the Confederacy. The Confederacy fought because they were invaded. The North fought to maintain the Union, as Lincoln said repeatedly. The South seceded because the Northern majority in Congress passed a tariff that benefitted the North at the expense of the South. Lincoln guaranteed the South permanent protection of slavery if they would stay in the Union, but did not offer to repeal the tariff. Historians have studied the diaries and letters of soldiers on both sides, and cant find anyone who was fighting over slavery. Lincoln said that blacks were not sufficiently developed to live in society with whites. His plan was to send them back to Africa, which might have happened, as the North didnt want them, if Lincoln had not been assassinated.

Under the Reconstruction that the North imposed on the South, the South was divided into five military districts in which civil rights for whites were scant and their property was stolen by carpetbaggers and scalawags as whites lacked the protection of law and self-government. The vindictive Union simply reversed the roles of black and white to the extent that they were able.

As Lawrence Stratton and I show in our book,...

Brennan and Clapper LewRockwell

Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa made a dramatic announcement this month that almost nobody in America paid any attention to. Grassley released a statement saying that four years ago, he asked the Intelligence Community Inspector General to release two Congressional Notifications written by former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

Grassley had had his requests to declassify the documents ignored repeatedly throughout the last two years of the Obama administration. He decided to try again because all of the Obama people at the CIA and DNI are gone now. This time, his request was approved.

So what was the information that was finally declassified? It was written confirmation that John Brennan ordered CIA hackers to intercept the emails of all potential or possible intelligence community whistleblowers who may have been trying to contact the Congressional oversight committees, specifically to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Simply put, Brennan ordered his people to hack into the Senate email systemagain. Grassley is the longtime chairman of Judiciary Committee, and he was understandably appalled.

First, let me explain what a Congressional Notification is. The CIA is required by law to inform the Congressional oversight committees whenever one of its officers, agents, or administrators breaks the law, when an operation requires Congressional approval because it is a covert action program, or whenever something happens at the CIA thats potentially controversial and the Agency wants to save itself the embarrassment of explaining itself to Congress later.

Brennan apparently ordered his officers to spy on the Senate. Remember, back in 2014 his officers spied on Intelligence Community investigators while they were writing the Senate Torture Report. This time, he decided to inform Congress.

But Brennan and Clapper classified the notification. It was like a taunt. Sure, Im spying on Congress, which is illegal. But its classified, so what are you going to do about it?

Grassley went through the proper channels. And even though Brennan and Clapper essentially gave him the middle finger, he didnt say anything until the documents were finally declassified. Hes a bigger man than I.

I think Grassley missed an opportunity here, though.

First, its my own opinion that John Brennan belongs in prison. He has flouted U.S. national security laws with impunity for years. Thats unacceptable. In these declassified notifications, hes confessing to hacking into the Senates computer system. Thats a violation of a whole host of laws, from illegal use of a government computer to wire fraud to espionage. There ought to be a price to pay for it, especially in light o...

Outrage All Around LewRockwell

NEW YORKAn old-fashioned party is a gathering of friends invited by the host or hostess, who foots the bill. Old-fashioned parties are very rare in New York nowadays; actually, they are nonexistent, having been replaced by the charity shindig, where the guests pay, the host or hostess profits, the gossip columns get to write about it, and the charity sometimes even gets to see some of the moola the climbers paid to get in.

Last week I went to an old-fashioned party given by Prince Pavlos of Greece and his princess, M.C. The occasion was the princess sisters birthday, Pia Getty. I ran into a lot of old friends I hadnt seen in years, and sat at a table with four ladies, some of whom I had pursued when my hair was still salt-and-pepper. Needless to say, we talked only about politics, the upcoming election, and the jihad against Trump by The New York Times and the media. I was pleasantly surprised to hear some of the opinions of people I knew to be either center or center-left when it came to the media. As one of the ladies said, No criminal or foreign leader has been called such names as Trump has by the TimesI feel outraged and very angry.

Well, The New York Times doesnt give a damn if it polarizes the nation, as long as it can cripple the Trump agenda, and a recent poll showed that 64 percent of the country believes the media is dividing the nation. The vitriol against the Republicans has been relentless, and woe to those who dare to contradict the talking heads on the idiot box. Ill give you a brief example: One 6ix9ine, a Hispanic rapper whose real name I think is Hernandez, posted a vile video that he financed of a 13-year-old girl performing oral sex. The tattoo-faced rapper escaped jail with a plea bargain because of his notoriety as a black rapper. No talking head or newspaper expressed outrage. But no actor would survive in Hollywood, especially if he or she were white, if they expressed pro-Trump views.

The left in America has managed to change the racial character of the U.S., something I dont believe has taken place anywhere else on earth. An unprecedented government-sponsored campaign flooded the country with immigrants throughout the late 60s and 70s. It continues to this day despite Trumps efforts to halt it, his stance being called racist. The media, the think tanks, the political machines, and the universities cry the R-word the moment anyone says enough is enough.

Who Lost Crimea? LewRockwell

Yesterday Trump faulted Obama for allowing Russia to annex Crimea:

It was President Obama that allowed it to happen, he said.

Trump has said something like this before more than once. Earlier this year, he complained that Obama was the one that let Crimea get away and suggested that I may have had a much different attitude. The following week, Trump said, President Obama lost Crimea, because President Putin didnt respect President Obama. The assumption that Russian actions hinge on their leaders attitude towards ours is bizarre and ignores that Russia has agency and interests that have nothing to do with us or our presidents. Trump has repeated this often enough that it is worth spending a little time to pick apart this silly talking point.

Most reports on Trumps remarks have focused on his choice to blame Obama for the annexation, but that is not nearly as important as the implication of Trumps statement that he seems to think it is up to the American president to allow or disallow the actions of other major nuclear-armed powers. Saying that Obama allowed the annexation of Crimea presupposes that there was something that Obama could or should have done to prevent or reverse it. Short of starting a shooting war with Russia and presumably causing WWIII, there was nothing Obama could have done, and it is a measure of Trumps ignorance and his belligerent instincts that he thinks otherwise. Whether Russia controls Crimea or not is hardly a vital interest of the U.S., and it certainly isnt worth risking a war. If Trump believes otherwise, he is even more reckless and irresponsible than we thought.

Written in History LewRockwell

In 1987, Paul Kennedy, a British professor of history at Yale University, unleashed a political and intellectual firestorm with the publication of his great (677-page) book, The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers. Kennedy produced a magisterial overview of the competition for global power over the past 500 years from 1500 AD to the present.

Kennedy proposed the thesis that any power that achieved, imagined it had achieved or sought to achieve and maintain a dominant hyper-power role of global dominance was doomed to lose it and then rapidly decline in overall power, wealth, prosperity and influence.

Kennedy argued with a wealth of detail drawn from different nations over his vast period of half a millennium that the very attempt to achieve and maintain such power forced every nation that attempted it into a ruinous pattern of strategic overstretch.

This demanded every major global empire in their turn to devote ruinously far too many economic resources to unproductive military power and ever more costly global commitments and conflicts.

The more ambitious the commitments, the quicker came military defeat, economic ruin and national collapse, Kennedy documented.

Kennedy published his book however at exactly the wrong moment for its abundantly documented conclusions and arguments to be taken seriously in the United States. The Cold War was just ending. The heroic actions of the Russian people in rejecting communism and leading in the dismantling of the Soviet Union were being misinterpreted as an eternal and lasting victory for the United States and for the forces of free market capitalism and minimum government regulation.

Kennedy was therefore subjected to a furious firestorm of abuse, especially from the emerging neoconservatives who under President George W Bush succeeded in imposing their reckless policies on nations across the Middle East and Eurasia. Kennedy, unlike his enraged critics was a gracious and tolerant gentleman as well as great scholar and took the firestorm in his stride.

Now more than 30 years after Kennedy published his great work, we can see how prescient, wise and visionary it truly was.

In 2016 President Donald Trump was elected on a platform of dealing with domestic crises raging from economic ruin and impoverishment to an out of control drug and opioid abuse epidemic and the collapse of law and order across the long US land border with Mexico.

That outcome provided telling testimony to the previous US policies of wasting at least $2 trillion on entirely unsuccessful nation-building and government-toppling projects ranging from Iraq to Afghanistan and since extended into such nation...

Superbugs Pose a Very Real Threat LewRockwell

Superbugs, those pesky bacteria that have evolved to become resistant to antibiotics, are on the rise and pose a very real threat to humanity. Antimicrobial resistance is a large and growing problem, with the potential for enormous health and economic consequences for the United States and the rest of the world.

According to CNBC, the media outlet which reported on a new OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) report, released Wednesday, superbug infections could cost the lives of about 2.4 million people in North America, Europe, and Australia over the next 30 years unless more is done to stem antibiotic resistance, which is already high across the globe.

Resistance is also projected to grow even more rapidly in low- and middle-income countries. In Brazil, Indonesia, and Russia, for example, between 40 percent and 60 percent of infections are already resistant, compared to an average of 17 percent in OECD countries. In these countries, the growth of antimicrobial resistance rates is forecast to be 4 to 7 times higher than in OECD countries between now and 2050.

About 29,500 persons die each year on average in the United States from infections related to eight drug-resistant bacteria. By 2050, that number is expected to rise sharply.  It is estimated that antimicrobial resistance will kill about 1 million people in the United States, in just over 30 years.

The economic toll of this superbug crisis is huge: In the United States alone the health-care costs dealing with antimicrobial resistance could reach $65 billion by 2050, according to the OECD report. That is more than the flu, HIV, and tuberculosis. If projections are correct, resistance to backup antibiotics will be 70 percent higher in 2030 compared to 2005 in OECD countries. In the same period, resistance to third-line treatments will double across EU countries. CNBC

Earlier this year, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned it had detected 221 strains of a rare breed of nightmare bacteria. This bacteria is virtually untreatable by antibiotics and have special genes that enable them to spread their resi...

When Gold Is Money LewRockwell

We are getting ahead of ourselves here. Gold does not circulate as money yet. It might never do so. Perhaps the end of government currency, fiat money imposed on us by government laws, may never be replaced by what for millennia has been the peoples money, gold. Do we even wish it? Given what we have to do to get there, probably not.

It is hard to think of a life without Nanny State giving us her money-tokens to buy our sweets, telling us what to eat and what medicine to take. But Nanny State is getting long in the tooth. When she was younger, she was less controlling. Her constant refusal to allow us, the ordinary people, to do what we want is an increasing source of friction.

Growing numbers of us can see Nanny State should pack her bags. But Nanny States favourites are frightened at the prospect of no nanny. Those of us who want a life without Nanny State cant agree what it should be, and dont know what happens when she goes.

Above all, theres a feeling our secure, controlled world is coming to an end. Increasing financial instability and economic uncertainty are our common destination. Nanny State has frittered away all our pocket money, and it turns out the cupboard is now bare.

We can see the state is irretrievably bust. But governments dont go bust, economists tell us, because they just issue more money to pay the bills. This is wrong: it is going bust by other means, and those of us who dont see it are driven by wishful thinking. Ultimately, government-issued money will reflect its issuers complete bankruptcy. And theres no point in following up the collapse of one fiat currency with another. The Zimbabwe dollar is followed by the bond note, and Venezuelas bolivar is being followed by the bolivar soberano. Bust is bust is bust. It is the logical outcome for all national currencies issued by spendthrift governments.

In the entire scope of human history, government money is always ephemeral. It dances above the water for a relative day or two before it is spent and dies. One day in the future, we will turn back to gold, as we always have in the past. Governments, as demonstrated by the Mnangagwa and Maduro regimes, will resist it to the bitter end. Like children robbed of all their pocket-money, the ordinary citizen will be left with nothing. The only exchangeable value will be gold, and probably silver as well.

Those who have gold will escape the poverty of those that dont. In time it will begin to circulate as the gold haves buy things from the have-nots, and gradually with the wider distribution of gold a sense of normality will return. It matters not if we price things in gold-grammes, or whether a slimmed-down government gives it a name. Sovereigns, eagles, krugerrands. It matters not if we use them electronically, so long as the bullion is readily there, and all credit is repaid in physical gold.

Author of How To End The Autism Epidemic LewRockwell

Discussing vaccines and autism isnt an explosive topic, its thermonuclear. Both sides of the argument feel, with great passion, that the health and welfare of children is at stake. Much of that passion is the product of several lies told repeatedly. These lies form a foundation for self-interested parties to deny, obscure, and misdirect the truth about whats happening to millions of children. They pit well-meaning parents against well-meaning parents. Remove the lies and youre left with a deeply disturbing explanation for why so many children seemingly have autism out of the blue.  JB Handley Author of How To End The Autism Epidemic 

How To End the Autism Epidemic  with many people saying is the best book on the link between vaccines and autism is already an Amazon best seller (it hit the list even before it was released) and has recently been sent to all of the senators in Washington.

Author, JB Handley, whose own son Jamieson, showed warning signs that very night after receiving his 6 vaccines given at his well baby appointment at two months of age.  Handley shares that something was clearly very wrong after that visit to the trusted family paediatrician, and his once perfectly healthy baby quickly morphed into a very sickly child.

Jamieson quickly regressed into autism and was often in constant pain with severe gut issues, his future now ruined.  This tragedy, that has also become millions of other parents far too eerily similar nightmare, propelled Handley on a journey that has become his lifes mission and purpose. Nothing fuels a parents fire to do something, more than that of their own childs suffering.  It also is the reason why parents of other injured children wont go away, until something is done about this crippling crisis.

JB, who studied at the prestigious Stanford University, has a very sharp grasp and innate ability to interpret and convey science, which is truly impressive. The research gone into this book is meticulous.

The book is written in a way that is concise and incredibly compelling, but most importantly, it is easy to understand.  This is a very important factor when discussing vaccine topics, simply because much of the vaccine science  in the last few decades has been manipulated, and you usually need a very sharp mind to see how this has happened.

The way studies are written actually go over most peoples heads, and this is why most dont look at the studies themselves in detail, for they simply do not understand what things mean, or how to question the data presented, let alone to see how the statistics were manipulated.


The Wonders of Real Free Market Medical Care LewRockwell

(Note:  Im doing this one as a long narrative based on my recent experience with the free market side of the health care system.  There are lots of links at the end of the article.)

Im a middle aged, reasonably fit, healthy male. I stay active in skiing, soccer (against players often 10-20 years younger) and other activities, and have been very blessed in that I havent needed surgery to repair an injury until recently.

I was skiing back in March with my daughter. When we were getting off a lift, the guy on my left somehow stepped on the back of my left ski with the back of his right ski, which pulled the back of my ski out to the side. I fell back on my butt with my lower left leg twisted nearly 90 degrees to the outside.  Significant and immediate burning sensation on the inner side of the knee the MCL area.

Ive had a couple grade 2 right MCL sprains in soccer. This felt the same but different. We were nowhere near the car, so I had to ski basically one legged the entire way back to the lift closest to the car because of the pain. I limped to the car, drove 4 hours home, and the knee was pretty swollen by then. RICE, RICE BABY.  (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation).  A couple days later, the swelling was pretty much gone.

Unfortunately, my company had dropped our medical insurance after Obamacare caused the price to more than double, and I hadnt picked it back up, so I was cash pay. I chose to rehab at home and not go to the doctor. Within 4-6 weeks, I felt ready to play soccer, although the knee still felt a bit weak. I figured it was just the new state of things, and I played soccer for about 3 months with the knee feeling a bit weak, but otherwise fine. I ran, cut, accelerated, stopped, and scored goals pretty much like I did in 2017.

However, in August, I was playing for my team against one of our primary rivals. I played a short pass with my left foot to my team captain about 15 feet away and felt the left knee shift/buckle inside a bit. It was disconcerting because it had never done that before but didnt hurt very much. I stayed on the field and walked it off because we had no subs. The discomfort went away in about 5 minutes, so I tried sprinting again, and the knee felt ok. The next time I had to cut and twist the left knee, it shifted/buckled a bit again. I walked off the field, done.  It swelled in the hours after the re-injury.

I tried rehabbing it again at home and saw some improvement, but even the slight twisting required to get in the car gave me that same shifting/buckling feeling. I went to see a local orthopedic surgeon that Im friends with. Upon examination, my ortho friend determined that both ACLs were intact and fine (WHEW), but found that I likely had a torn meniscus. He recommended an MRI. Given that I was a cash patient, I didnt want to do it at the local hospital, as the cost would be $2000+. I ran an internet search and found a place 1.5 hours from here that...


Former Hillary Clinton Advisor: Shes Running Again in 2020 The Gateway Pundit

Hillary Clintons former adviser Mark Penn is warning the public that we should brace ourselves for another run from the power hungry sore loser in 2020.

Penn co-wrote in a Sunday op-ed for the Wall Street Journal that she wont let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House.

True to her name, Mrs. Clinton will fight this out until the last dog dies, the op-ed that Penn authored with Andrew Stein claims. She wont let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House.

Like a cockroach that just wont die, or the final boss in a video game that keeps obnoxiously coming back after each defeat Clinton just wont go away.

Penn said that by reinventing herself as a liberal firebrand, Mrs. Clinton will easily capture the 2020 nomination.

You can expect her to run for president once again, he said. Maybe not at first, when the legions of Senate Democrats make their announcements, but definitely by the time the primaries are in full swing.

Last month, Clinton admitted that while she doesnt want to run again she would like to be president.

Richard Ojeda, West Virginia Lawmaker Who Backed Teachers Strikes, Will Run for President The Intercept

Richard Ojeda is running for president. Ojeda, a West Virginia state senator and retired U.S. Army major, lost his congressional bid in the states 3rd District on Tuesday, but saw the largest swing of Trump voters toward Democrats in any district around the country overperforming 2016 by more than 35 points. Still, in a district that Donald Trump carried by 49 points, Ojeda, who rose to prominence because of his support for a teachers strike in West Virginia, lost by 12 points.

Ojedas case for his candidacy is straightforward: The Democratic Party has gotten away from its roots, and he has a unique ability to win over a white, black, and brown working-class coalition by arguing from a place of authority that Trump is a populist fraud. Hes launching his campaign with an anti-corruption focus that draws a contrast with Trumps inability to drain the swamp.

His authority and one of his greatest liabilities would come, in part, from his own previous support of Trump in the 2016 general election. After backing Sen. Bernie Sanders in the primary, Ojeda refused to support Hillary Clinton, seeing her as an embodiment of the partys drift toward the elite.

The Democratic Party is supposed to be the party that fights for the working class, and thats exactly what I do.

I have been a Democrat ever since I registered to vote, and Ill stay a Democrat, but thats because of what the Democratic Party was supposed to be, he told The Intercept. The reason why the Democratic Party fell from grace is because they become nothing more than elitist. That was it. Goldman Sachs, thats who they were. The Democratic Party is supposed to be the party that fights for the working class, and thats exactly what I do. I will stand with unions wholeheartedly, and thats the problem: the Democratic Party wants to say that, but their actions do not mirror that.

Ojeda turned on Trump early in his term, concluding that the presidents interest in improving the lives of working people like those Ojeda grew up with in West Virginia, or served with in the military, was fake. Now, he wants to break the spell Trump still holds on half the country.

We have a person that has come down to areas like Appalachia and has triedand has convinced these people that he is for them, when in reality the people that he has convinced couldnt even afford to play one round of golf on his fanc...

Here We Go: Palm Beach County Elections Officials Say its Impossible to Make THURSDAY Recount Deadline The Gateway Pundit

At what point are these crooked and incompetent officials removed from office?

Palm Beach County took FOUR DAYS to count their midterm ballots and manufacture new votes.

Palm Beach County elections supervisor Susan Bucher would not allow media cameras into the public ballot counting this past week. She did not allow Republican watchers into the counting room. She continued to manufacture votes and she refused a court order to submit over-votes and under-votes to the Palm Beach County Canvassing Board to review.

And now Palm Beach County officials are already saying they cannot finish their recount by the THURSDAY Deadline!

Patriotic Rep. Steve King Gives TGP Founder Jim Hoft a Shout Out from the Herring Hill in Iowa on Armistice Day (VIDEO) The Gateway Pundit

On November 11, 1918, the fighting from World War I  ended at 11:11 AM and an Armistice was signed. Around the world people celebrated the end to the final and greatest war.

Across America patriots celebrated the end to World War I.

The small community of Herring, Iowa joined in the julilation.  The towns people and area farmers gathered at the bottom of the Herring Hill near the center of town. They took two long poles and spliced them together with wire. Later that night the Herring folk celebrated the end of the Great War by hoisting the towering flagpole and proudly flying Old Glory in the town center. Ralph Dean was 12-years-old and helped raised the Herring flagpole.

The flagpole is pictured in this photo taken in 1929.

Herring at that time had a country store complete with post office, a grain elevator, a Northwestern Railroad Depot, a lumber yard, and a dance hall. The country school was down the hill by the train tracks. Herring was established as a trading town and at one time previously had a pool hall, a blacksmith shop, and a livestock yard for the railroad. Years later Ralph Dean and his wife Alice moved back to Herring to raise their three girls. Over the years the community slowly disappeared. The country store burned down in the 1950s. The dance hall was torn down after World War II. The houses and grain elevator are no longer standing.

The only structure left in Herring, Iowa today is the Armistice Day flagpole.

In 2012 Jim Hoft, the founder of The Gateway Pundit, went back to Iowa and purchased what was left of Herring the Armistice Day flagpole. You see, his grandfather Ralph Dean helped hoist the pole in November 1918.

This summer we celebrated the 100 year anniversary of the Herring flagpole. Local farmers, family members and friends came out to celebrate. Rep. Steve King (R-IA) stopped by and gave a wonderful speech for the occasion.

On Sunday Steve King sent The Gateway Pundit a video from earlier today. Steve was back on the Herring Hill this afternoon and took this video.

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi put the Secretary of State and Florida Department of Law Enforcement on notice Sunday.

Its about time

On Sunday, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi said, FDLEs duty to investigation this matter is clear, and I am directing the department to take the necessary steps to promote public safety and to assure that our state will guarantee integrity in our elections process.

Bondi sent two letters Sunday highlighting the irregularities occuring at both Palm Beach County and Broward County polling sites.

The Florida Attorney General stated in her letter to FDLE Commissioner Rick Swearingen that she is deeply troubled by his departments announcement it will not pursue any investigation into the clearly documented irregularities in the conduct of elections supervisors Brenda Snipes and Susan Bucher.

Pam Bondi specifically wrote about the blatant election fraud taking place in both Broward County and Palm Beach County including elections supervisors illegally counting votes that were rejected by the canvassing board and preventing observers from attending the public ballot counting.

EXCLUSIVE: Infowars Sensation Owen Shroyer: We Knew We Would Be at This Place in History The Left Is Trying to Destroy This Country (VIDEO) The Gateway Pundit

Alex Jones and InfoWars have been hit the hardest by the the tech industrys aggressive efforts against conservative voices.  The tech giants used the excuse of  misinformation, to ban Infowars from Apple, Google, Facebook, Youtube and Spotify in September.

While the tech giants continue to severely restrict the reach of Jones and Infowars, and wiped out content of hundreds of other conservative outlets to American subscribers as part of their fight against fake news, the Trump administration is idly standing by. InfoWars host Owen Shroyer lamented the Republican Partys lack of concern in an interview with The Gateway Pundit.

InfoWars and alternative media platforms helped Trump winning the White House in 2016 by combating the mainstream medias propaganda and lies, Owens argued.

Lets really get to the core of this Who got Trump elected? It was InfoWars. It was Alex Jones. It was Michael Savage. It was Ann Coulter. That was the biggest audience that put Trump in office, that was with Trump from day one, that already had huge audiences of millions of people built up. So, thats what got Trump in office. Now, whos getting censored more than anybody? InfoWars. Alex Jones, Shroyer said. But, why isnt anything done. It really hurts.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump appeared on an InfoWars broadcast with Alex Jones and thanked Jones for his support.

Yet, in light of the InfoWars ban from the social media platforms, Trump campaigns digital advertising and data guru and 2020 re-election campaign manager, Brad Parscale, maintains that he doesnt know who Jones is and has never heard of InfoWars , Shroyer explained.

Brad Parscale, heres a guy who is apparently the social media guru. Heres a guy who writes an exclusive for Brietbart the same day I talked to him, and Brad Parscale talked to me and he said hes never heard of Alex Jones and said he had no idea who InfoWars is. But, he does know social media is censoring conservatives. But hes never heard of Alex Jones?

This is the genius who got Trump in office with social media and hes never heard of InfoWars and Alex Jones when Trump went on Alex Jones show. He has to know that InfoWars was m...

The Emperor Has No Mind DownWithTyranny!

by Noah

Nixon was pretty damn bad. We knew he was a bad guy. Hed given some signs of mental instability too, perhaps most notably with his 1962 You wont have Nixon to kick around anymore speech. Sadly we did 6 years later. But, it wasnt until he was heading for his exit that we learned just how wacked out he was. Now we have Donald Trump. Like with Nixon, the signs were there before he got "elected" President. It was even more obvious, but his voters went to the parade and saw what they wanted to see and saw what they were told to see by the corporate media.

What we have here in Donald Trump and his supporters is a variation of the old Emperor Has No Clothes thing. He acts like he should be bowed down to by all, as if he was an emperor or dictator. His enablers and supporters look at him and they refuse to see the reality that their "president" is stark, raving mad and could destroy us all, including them, if he isnt stopped. A madman can lose his mind but that doesnt mean he cant plot his trajectory, and ours, every day.

Crazy as he is, he is able to deliberately create chaos. He does it in order to achieve a result. History and comic books are full of truly evil and demented people like Donald Trump. Consider Trump a real life example of The Joker from the Batman comics, a twisted man bent on creating mayhem simply for his own gratification and personal gain.

FL Gov. Scott Takes Legal Action to Bar Broward County Canvassing Board From Including Ballots Counted After Noon Saturday Deadline The Gateway Pundit

Rick Scott

Florida Governor Rick Scott (R) filed two emergency motions in Broward County and Palm Beach County on Sunday as he ramps up his legal fight going into the recount.

Governor Scott also took legal action to bar the Broward County canvassing board from counting ballots produced after the Saturday noon deadline previously ordered by a judge.

The Hill reported:

Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) filed two emergency motions in Palm Beach and Broward County courts on Sunday, ramping up legal efforts as recounts began in the states contested Senate race.

The motions request that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) and county sheriffs impound and secure all voting machines, ballots and tabulating devices when they are not in use.

Scotts campaign also filed a complaint in Broward court asking a judge to bar the county canvassing board from including ballots counted after a noon Saturday deadline in the final vote tally.

The Broward and Palm Beach County Supervisors of Elections has already demonstrated a blatant disregard for Floridas elections laws, making it more important than ever that we continue to do everything possible to prevent fraud and ensure this recount is operated responsibly, Chris Hartline, a spokesman for Scotts campaign, said in a statement.

Senator-Elect Rick Scott will continue to fight to protect the will of Florida voters.

ALL Florida counties met the latest deadline on Saturday at noon to turn over their election totals.

Investigative journalist Laura Loomer also attended the protests and press conferences.

Laura was able to ask Samuels about Brenda Snipes who has a LONG record of incompetence and criminal activity.

From the interview:

Laura Loomer: Do you think that its appropriate for Brenda Snipes to overseeing this given the fact that a judge ruled that she already destroyed ballots in a race between Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Tim Canova? I mean, that seems a little unethical for her to be overseeing this?

Leonard Samuels: Of course she should oversee this. She was appointed by a Republican governor Jeb Bush. Shes been reelected several times by the voters of Broward County Theres been not one iota of fraud. Theres been not one iota of corruption.

Laura Loomer: There has though. A judge ruled she destroyed ballots in the race between Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Tim Canova. So how can you say that theres not any shred of evidence of corruption when she destroyed ballots? If youre an elections supervisor shouldnt destroying ballots be an automatic disqualification for overseeing elections.

Leonard Samuels: I dont qualify that as fraud or corruption.

Laura Loomer: You dont qualify the destruction of legitimate ballots as fraud or corruption?

Leanard Samuels: It was way, way after the election. Debbie Wasserman Schultz won that election.

Laura Loomer: You dont not think that is fraud? And youre a lawyer for the Democrat Party?

This was an excellent interview by Laura Loomer!

Andrew Gillum to Hold Count Every Vote Rally at Broward County Church Sunday Evening The Gateway Pundit

One day after un-conceding the election, defeated Democrat candidate for Florida governor Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum will hold a rally at a Broward County church Sunday evening sponsored by leftist political groups in support of the recount efforts that could upend the election day victory of Republican candidate Ron DeSantis. The rally is being called, Count Every Vote: A Faith Response to the Florida Recount.

Gillum rescinded his election-night concession in an address to the media Saturday.

Gillum will be the first major candidate involved in Floridas statewide mandatory recounts to hold an event to agitate supporters. DeSantis has issued a video statement but made no public appearances. Senate candidate Republican Gov. Rick Scott has spoken to the press and done interviews while Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson has issued a statement and a video. The Agriculture commissioner race is also under a mandatory recount but is not as controversial as the governor or Senate races.

The Gillum rally will be held at 5 p.m. EST at the New Mount Olive Baptist Church in Fort Lauderdale. It is co-sponsored by several leftist groups including the Dream Defenders, SEIU and the NAACP.

Gillum and the church promoted the rally on Twitter:

Will The New Congress Be Able To Accomplish Anything Substantive? DownWithTyranny!

Is there anything the new Congress can do is a question many people are asking. As we saw earlier today, potential if absurd presidential candidate, putatively as a Democrat, Howard Schultz, the Starbucks guy, is worried that the Democratic Party is wandering too far left. Hes an idiot. Norman Solomon, in an essay for TruthOut, is far more on the mark. He notes that pundits and conservatives are urging Democrats away from popular policies that are embraced by most Americans, if not by the super-wealthy. We should expect plenty of such advice during the months ahead as Democrats take control of the House for the first time in eight years, he wrote. It may sound prudent to urge affordable health care instead of Medicare for All, or subsidies for community colleges instead of tuition-free public college. But such positions easily come across as wonky mush that offers no clear alternative to a status quo that played a role in driving populist anger into the arms of the right wing in the first place.

One problem is that the conservative Democrats from the Republican wing of the party is exactly who the DCCC stocked the new Congress with. Many of the winners campaigned on affordable healthcare, for example, instead of on Medicare-for-All. Unfortunately, not many progressive were elected. The DCCC saw to that in candidate recruitment and candidate support. Plenty of Republican-lite careerists were elected. When political campaigns are deeply authentic from the grassroots, wrote Solomon, they serve as compost to prepare the ground for future victories. In sharp contrast, theres little left to build on after Election Day in the wake of top-down campaigns that promote moderate notions in response to extremely dire problems. While commonly applauded by mass media, centrism smothers the fires of grassroots excitement. So where do we go from there?
Incantations about the need for so-called moderate policies do little to stimulate a big turnout from the Democratic base and other voters oriented to voting against Republican candidates if their opponents draw sharp contrasts between advocacy for economic justice and flacker...

Amadorismo e delrios conspiratrios marcam primeiros passos da poltica externa de Bolsonaro The Intercept

Quando Trump ligou para parabenizar Bolsonaro pela eleio, no havia nenhum integrante da campanha preparado para traduzir a conversa. O filho de um empresrio amigo do presidente eleito foi escalado para a misso. A primeira conversa entre o presidente eleito e o presidente da economia mais forte do mundo foi intermediada por um youtuber de 24 anos. Parece uma cena de filme do Mazzaropi, mas o jeitinho estabanado com que o bolsonarismo tem lidado com a poltica externa.

Bolsonaro mal foi eleito e j apresentou seu carto de visitas para o mundo. E a primeira impresso no foi nada boa. Apesar do seu programa de governo prometer uma poltica externa sem partido, o que vimos at agora ideologismo puro e simples. O capito falastro e seus comandados ainda no se deram conta de que no h mais espao para retrica eleitoral e j colocaram o pas em muitas saias justas mesmo antes de assumir o poder.

Como aquele tiozo do churrasco que no sabe de nada, mas tem uma opinio ruim para tudo, Bolsonaro e sua equipe causaram estragos nas relaes com diversos pases. Criticaram a China, o Mercosul, criaram atrito com os pases rabes e ameaaram sair do Acordo de Paris. Mas ele tem voltado atrs de quase todas essas decises, talquei?

No mbito das relaes internacionais, declaraes tm efeitos imediatos e criam fatos polticos. Ficar apertando Ctrl + Z s refora o quanto o novo governo desconhece questes bsicas das relaes exteriores.

Illinois Woman Catches Democrat Voter Fraud in St. Clair County Where They Have a History of Selling Votes for Crack The Gateway Pundit

St. Clair County in Illinois has a long history of confirmed cases of voter fraud.

One St. Clair official Kelvin Ellis was also sentenced for attempting to arrange the murder of a witness to the countys rigged voting system.

In 2015 Belleville, Illinois resident Peggy Hubbard posted an epic rant on the police shooting of young black man in North St. Louis.

Peggy compared the black communitys reaction to the shooting of Mansur Ball-Bey in North St. Louis outside a crack house with the shooting death of 9 year-old Jamyla Bolden in Ferguson. Jamyla was shot dead while studying on her bed. Peggy was outraged the liberal media made more out of the crackheads murder than that of the little girl. Peggy was called an Uncle Tom, Aunt Jemima, the White Mans Bed Wench, and the White Mans Black B*tch for speaking her mind.

on Tuesday Peggy volunteered as a poll watcher in St. Clair County. Peggy later tweeted out that she caught drunks, dementia patients and voters who did not reside in the city attempting to vote on election day.

Face-Deer Coins from 9th-Century Denmark bensozia

Danish archaeologists recently unearthed a hoard of 172 "Face-Deer" coins like this one in a bog, after one had been found by a metal detectorist. They date to the first half of the ninth century AD, when King Gudfred and his sons reigned. (These were the first kings of Denmark mentioned in reliable sources, because they warred against Charlemagne.) Until this hoard was found only 11 of these coins were known.

What weird designs.

The Riot Act of 1714 provided that if English authorities encountered any group of more than 12 persons they thought looked like a riot they could order those people to disperse, and anyone who did not could be charged with a felony.

The actual proclamation they read out went like this:

Our Sovereign Lord the King chargeth and commandeth all persons, being assembled, immediately to disperse themselves, and peaceably to depart to their habitations, or to their lawful business, upon the pains contained in the Act made in the first year of King George the First for preventing tumults and riotous assemblies.

That was called "reading the riot act."

Several California Republicans who appeared to have held onto their congressional seats on Election Day saw their leads narrowed or reversed as late ballots continued to be counted, almost uniformly helping Democrats.

In the 10th congressional district, Democrat Josh Harder had taken a lead of over 3,000 votes over Republican incumbent Jeff Denham by Saturday evening. Denham led by a slim margin on Election Day.

In the 48th district, incumbent Republican Dana Rohrabacher saw a small Election Day lead reversed decisively, and the race was called for Democrat challenger Harley Rouda.

In the 39th and 45th districts, Republicans Young Kim and Rep. Mimi Walters narrowly clung to leads that had diminished to just over 2,000 votes in both cases, with many more ballots still to be counted.

And in the 50th district, which the Associated Press called for incumbent Republican Duncan Hunter, Democrat challenger Ammar Campa-Najjar has refused to concede, citing the possibility of late counted ballots giving him a win.
