WALSH: Democratic House a Blessing in Disguise for Trump

The 2018 midterms concluded with Democrats gaining at least 28 seats and taking control of the U.S. House of Representatives; however, they also lost three seats in the Senate and could not buy governorships in Texas, Florida, or Georgia despite all of the celebrity endorsements, war chests, and MSM lovefest. As Matt Walsh reveals, it isn’t going to be all that bad despite gridlock in our imminent future. He argues that in fact it could help propel a Trump 2020 victory and a Republican retake of the House in 2020 since the Democrats in charge will leave Americans disgusted that their time and money are being wasted attacking President Trump with one political witch hunt after another. Explains Walsh, “If their anti-Trump crusade proves as fruitless as the anti-Kavanaugh crusade, it is hard to imagine just how thoroughly exhausted and sickened the electorate will feel 24 months from now. Trump won’t even have to campaign at all. Nancy Pelosi will see to his reelection herself.”

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

The Blue Wave never came. Democrats gained 28 seats in the House, less than half of what Republicans gained in the 2010 midterms, and lost ground in the Senate. Moreover, three of their up-and-coming stars — Beto O’Rourke in Texas, Andrew Gillum in Florida, Stacey Abrams in Georgia — lost in spite of millions of dollars and much media hype.

Yet they do have the House. This, I think, will certainly be bad for the country. It means two years of gridlock and dysfunction, even worse than the gridlock and dysfunction that already plagued our government. But it’s very possible that last night’s results will prove greatly advantageous to President Trump. He may well have earned re-election in 2020 by losing the House in 2018.

The Democrats have made their plans very clear. They will spend the next two years launching investigations and wielding their subpoena power in a blatant attempt to settle political vendettas.

Pelosi Wants Dems Ready to “Throw a Punch”

Democrats apparently have already forgotten about that whole de-escalating the violent political rhetoric thing. House Minority Queen Bee Nancy Pelosi said her party mates should be ready to “throw a punch” during an Oct. 28 interview with podcaster Jonathan Van Ness. “We are not them,” Pelosi said. “We do not act the way they do. But I do think when you are in the area and somebody throws a punch, you’ve got to be ready [to] take a punch and throw a punch.” So much for “uniting” the country and “bringing people together” if Democrats win.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Democrats should be prepared to “throw a punch” in the political arena, while discussing the midterm election with podcaster Jonathan Van Ness at the Bentzen Ball in Washington D.C. last month.

“What we are trying to do is speak to them not about what we disagree but where we agree, that they need to have a bigger paycheck and lower health care costs, and their voice should be stronger than a special dark money interest money being spent,” Pelosi said of the Democrats’ midterm election message to voters. Pelosi pledged Democrats will move to make the government more transparent if they retake Congress on Tuesday, something the embattled California lawmakers claims, was the case when her party last held a majority.

“We are not then,” Pelosi said of Republicans, before urging Democrats to toughen up for future legislative battles against conservatives. “We do not act the way they do.

Farrakhan Visits Iran: Chants “Death to America”

Anti-semite favorite of the political left Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan traveled to Iran on the anniversary of the 1979 hostage crisis and the Trump administration’s levying of new sanctions on Iran to lead chants of “Death to America.” He also used the opportunity to tell his Iranian audience that black Americans released during the hostage crisis should be regarded as revolutionaries, and that “America has never been a democracy.” With friends like Farrakhan, who needs enemies? He’s one more reminder of why the left’s motley coalition is such an odd thing.

Here’s more from Fox News…

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a notorious anti-Semite who recently compared Jewish people to termites, led a “Death to America” chant Sunday during a solidarity trip to Iran.

Farrakhan’s trip came ahead of the Trump administration’s re-implementation of U.S. sanctions against the Islamic Republic on Monday.

Speaking to law school students at the University of Tehran, the 85-year-old Farrakhan said “America has never been a democracy,” and also led a “Death to Israel” chant at the end of his talk, according to Iranian news agencies.

“Today, I warn the American government that sanctioning Iran is a big mistake,” he said at a meeting with the Secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council, Mohsen Rezaei. Farrakhan noted his belief America is conspiring against Iran.

Faux-Moderate Sen. Claire McCaskill Sponsored Bill to End Immigration Enforcement

In an effort to drum up support among Independent voters, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) went on Fox News declaring she supports President Trump’s proactive measures to secure the border in advance of the arrival of the thousands-strong Central American caravan of migrants. “I think the president has to use every tool he has at his disposal, and I 100 percent back him up on that, whether it is turning them back because we are not equipped to handle that many asylum claims into our system,” McCaskill said. “I do not want our borders overrun, and I support the president’s efforts to make sure they’re not.” There’s just one problem: Numbers USA gives McCaskill an “F” rating for her support of amnesty and open borders. Worse still, she cosponsored legislation earlier this year to end ALL immigration law enforcement.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) has most recently shifted gears on immigration, talking tough on border issues, although months ago the lawmaker co-sponsored legislation to end all immigration enforcement.
During an interview with Fox News this week, McCaskill said she supports President Trump’s efforts to stop a migrant caravan of at least 7,000 to 10,000 Central Americans.

“I think the president has to use every tool he has at his disposal, and I 100 percent back him up on that, whether it is turning them back because we are not equipped to handle that many asylum claims into our system,” McCaskill said. “I do not want our borders overrun and I support the president’s efforts to make sure they’re not.”

McCaskill’s tough rhetoric on the border comes at the same time of her re-election bid, where she faces a tough challenge from Republican candidate Josh Hawley.

McSally Smoking Sinema with 7-Point Lead

Republican Martha McSally is surging to the front of the race with a seven-point lead over progressive Democrat Kyrsten Sinema in the race for an Arizona U.S. Senate seat . . . with less than a week to go. According to an OH Predictive Insights and ABC 15 Arizona (ABC15/OHPI) poll conducted Oct 22-23, McSally leads 52 percent to Sinema’s 45 percent and has gained the most leverage with Independent voters who have swung right since September. The poll also reveals that 50 percent of voters find Sinema unfavorable. This also appears to be a national trend that is close to confirming a GOP senate gain as guaranteed.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

A new poll from OH Predictive Insights and ABC15 Arizona (ABC15/OHPI) shows Republican Martha McSally steadily leading Democrat Kyrsten Sinema in the Arizona United States Senate race.
McSally currently holds a seven point lead over Sinema, 52 percent to Sinema’s 45 percent. Two percent are still undecided and one percent support Green candidate Angela Green.

The poll, conducted via phone from October 22-23, also found Sinema to be unfavorable among 50 percent of voters, compared to McSally’s 44 percent.

“With the hottest race in the country coming to an end, McSally is solidifying her lead over Sinema,” said Chief Pollster and Managing Partner Mike Noble. “The game-changer comes from Independent voters, who have swung from Sinema to McSally since our last poll. We’ll know come Election Night whether they stick with McSally or swing back to Sinema.”

NORTHCOM General: “This Caravan is Different”

NORTHCOM and North American Aerospace Defense Commander General Terrence O’Shaughnessy is warning that the mass of humanity en route to the U.S.-Mexico border from Central America is unprecedented. “This caravan is different from what we’ve seen in the past,” said O’Shaughnessy. “What we have seen, is . . . violence coming out of the caravan, and we’ve seen as they’ve passed other international borders.” Their level of violence – and entitlement – is unprecedented, and their storming of Mexico’s border with Guatemala, violence against law enforcement, and rejection of an offer of asylum in Mexico are just the beginning of the fight. This is the justification for Iraq-level reinforcements at our border with Mexico.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

The U.S. commander overseeing the military’s response to the migrant caravan headed from Central America to the U.S. southern border said Tuesday that the caravan was unlike anything officials have seen before.
“This caravan is different from what we’ve seen in the past,” Air Force Gen. Terrence O’Shaughnessy, commander of U.S. Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Command, told reporters at the Pentagon. “What we have seen, is we’ve seen clearly an organization at a higher level than we’ve seen before.”

“We’ve seen violence coming out of the caravan, and we’ve seen as they’ve passed other international borders, we’ve seen them behave in a nature that is not what we’ve seen in the past,” he added.

There were reports of violence from the caravan earlier in the day. Mexican authorities arrested two Hondurans who allegedly shot at federal police officers escorting the caravan across the southern Mexican state of Chiapas.

McCaskill Blasts Warren and Sanders as “Crazy Democrats”; Takes Their Money

Missouri Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill is busy shoring up her two-faced credentials inside and outside the Swamp. Recently, the embattled “moderate” called Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (IND-VT) “crazy Democrats,” conveniently ignoring her history of repeatedly taking their political fund-raising cash to save her own career. McCaskill went on Fox News to try and walk back her campaign ad, but the damage was already done. She also pointed out that she disagrees with Bernie Sanders “on a bunch of stuff.” It’s more evidence that the Democratic caucus is splintering under electoral pressure.

Here’s more from Fox News…

Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill floated the names of Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders when talking about “crazy Democrats”.

But that’s despite her history of accepting their PAC money or asking for support.

The vulnerable senator, who is facing a tough challenge from Republican state Attorney General Josh Hawley, tried to distance herself from the progressive side of the Democratic Party in a last-ditch attempt to save her political career amid the upcoming election.

McCaskill mentioned Warren and Sanders after being asked about her recent ad declaring her “not one of those crazy Democrats” that prompted questions who is she referring to.

“I would not call my colleagues crazy, but Elizabeth Warren sure went after me when I advocated tooling back some of the regulations for small banks and credit unions,” McCaskill told Fox News on Monday, also pointing out that she disagrees with Sanders “on a bunch of stuff.”

Migrant Caravan Rejects Job Offers for Asylum

In a telling report by the Arizona Central, members of the now 7,000-migrant caravan have rejected opportunities to stay and work in Mexico. TIME magazine published details that Mexican officials reportedly attempted to appease the mass of humanity by offering “shelter, medical attention, schooling and jobs” if the migrants agreed to remain “in the southern Mexico states of Chiapas or Oaxaca.” Unfortunately, the caravan has stalled about 190 miles into Mexico amid claims of a child abduction with Mexican police forming a human blockade on a bridge to prevent their northward travel. The “leaders” of the caravan say they will “rest” for a day, presumably for the negative headline to fade. But this begs we wonder aloud what the endgame is if not for a free ticket to the U.S.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

A migrant caravan currently snaking its way from Honduras to the United States’s southern border was intercepted by Mexican government officials on Saturday, who offered the migrants the opportunity to stay in Mexico on work permits — an offer the migrant caravan has reportedly declined.

The Arizona Central reports that the caravan, which now numbers between five and seven thousand people, ran into a Mexican police blockade Saturday, temporarily halting progress on a bridge just outside the Mexican state of Oaxaca.

“Rows of police impeded the migrants’ path, prompting several hours of negotiations between police commanders, immigration officials and caravan representatives,” the AZ Central said. Mexican officials reportedly offered the migrants “shelter, medical attention, schooling and jobs” if the migrants agreed to remain “in the southern Mexico states of Chiapas or Oaxaca,” according to TIME Magazine.

Impeachment on the “Democratic” House Agenda

While the left has gone quiet on impeachment just two weeks ahead of midterms, some are refusing to follow the talking points and say impeachment and more collusion investigations are in store for America if Democrats win back the House of Representatives on Nov. 6. Breitbart News reports that Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) – a key Pelosi ally – promised that Pelosi will be previewing a plethora of investigations should they win and even wrote a Washington Post op-ed about all manner of investigations. Schiff revealed, “There are serious and credible allegations the Russians may possess financial leverage over the president, including perhaps the laundering of Russian money through his businesses. It would be negligent to our national security not to find out.” Clearly, if the left wins and these representatives get their way, priorities will change drastically on Capitol Hill, and none of them will MAGA.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has tried to tamp down talk of impeachment ahead of the midterm elections, vowing to be less partisan if the Democrats retake the House.
“It’s about bringing people together. It’s not about – you know, people say, ‘Well aren’t you going to impeach the president, impeach whatever his name is [that] just went to the court?’” she told CNN on Monday. “I mean there’s a bipartisan, shall we say, inevitability to impeachment, but it’s not a – it’s not something one party does.”

However, some Democrats keep going off-script.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee and a close Pelosi ally, is openly previewing the many investigations Democrats would launch into the Trump administration if they retake the House in November.

Gingrich: Media Earned “Enemy of the People” Moniker

In an interview with Axios in the wake of the serial pipe bombs mailed to high-profile Democrats, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich called out the media as “the enemy of the people.” After news of the many pipe bombs mailed to several Democrats around the country, the media was quick to seize on the debacle as an opportunity to put the blame squarely on President Trump. The media is doing its level best to unite Republicans just days before the midterm elections in which – if polls remain steady – could be a historic victory for Trump and the GOP.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said Thursday that the media have “earned” President Trump’s label of “the enemy of the people.”

Gingrich told Axios that Trump’s rhetoric against the media has helped deepen the partisan divide, but “they’ve earned it.”

Gingrich made similar comments to TMZ. They come a day after several top Democrats and CNN, all of whom have been critical of Trump, were mailed explosive devices.

“Look, I don’t think there’s a direct relationship of any kind,” Gingrich said of Trump’s attacks on his critics, adding that the people who were targeted have “been very hostile to conservatism.”

On Wednesday, Gingrich said anyone behind the bomb threats should “be locked up for the longest possible time as a signal that we will not tolerate threats to anyone.”
