Establishment Republicans Lost the House, Not Trump

Establishment Republicans Lost the House in the 2018 Elections, Not President Trump Let’s look at the Establishment Republicans and their scorecard in the 2018 Congressional elections for the House of Representatives. Some analysts have claimed that President Trump was responsible for losing control of the House to the Democrats. That’s simply not true. Remember Establishments Republicans generally did not enthusiastically endorse President Trump or his conservative, populist policies. The numbers are now available. Republicans gave up 42 incumbent seats in the House due to retirements and resignations. There were 28 Republicans that retired and 14 Republicans that resigned. All 42…

Surprise Trump House Victory

Surprise Trump House Victory – Establishment Republicans Lost the House Looking at the 2018 election results in detail, you will find some surprises including an important and subtle surprise Trump House victory. Contrary to some analyst opinions, Trump did not lose the House. In fact, Trump was not the cause of the loss of the House from Republican control to Democratic control. Similarly, there’s no reason for the Democrats to celebrate for too long because it is highly likely they will lose control of the House in 2020. If the Democrats didn’t really win the House and the House wasn’t…

It was a Zero Wave Election

Not a Blue Wave, Given Significant Senate Losses The 2018 Congressional elections turned out to be a zero wave election. Since December 2017, the Democrats were thinking a Blue Wave was coming despite clear and convincing evidence to the contrary. Rage and resistance, after all, don’t guarantee a Blue Wave. Let’s look at what happened on Election Day and why this turned out to be a zero wave election. According to the preliminary totals with a few seats still up in the air, Democrats gained about 26 seats in the House during this election, Trump’s first midterm election. This is…

Expect a Red Wave in the U. S. House and Senate Elections in November My forecast for the 2018 Congressional Elections – There will be a Conservative Red Wave in the House with 225 – 228 Republicans elected to office and in the Senate with 58 – 60 Republicans elected to office. Let’s look at some of the reasons that went into the forecast. Reasons that Impacted this Forecast As you remember from my book Great News for America, the presidential election of 2016 was both an historic and critical presidential election that ushered in a new American Constitutional Era…

How Will the Caravan Crisis Impact the Elections?

How Will the Caravan Crisis Impact the 2018 Congressional Elections? It’s hard to miss the headlines dealing with the caravan crisis. Initially, there were about 4,000 immigrants traveling from Central America headed to the United States. Now, we learn, the caravan crisis includes a growing number of smaller caravans and some additional immigrants who have joined the walk and ride, all seeking asylum in America. The crowded line, or should we call it a mob scene, now is estimated to reach up to perhaps 14,000 immigrants. Surprisingly, if you believe in political surprises, this so-called spontaneous flood of potential refugees…

Most Important Reason to Vote This Year

What is the Most Important Reason to Vote This Year? The most important reason to vote this year is simple, yet incredibly profound. With the 2018 Congressional elections, we are not just electing a House of Representatives and a third of the United States Senate. We are literally voting to determine our system of government for the future. Does America want to  continue with our Constitutional Republic that focuses on protecting individual rights and liberties? Or, does America want to abandon the Constitution and create a socialist country instead? The Brett Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearings Shed Light on Today’s Reality The…

Conservative Red Wave is Growing

Conservative Red Wave is Growing as We Get Closer to the 2018 Congressional Elections The Conservative Red Wave continues to grow and build. While many on the Left have been talking about a Blue Wave since late last year, there is still no Blue Wave, no Blue Ripple, and no Blue Drip. As I have written before, even some Blue Bubbles (strongly blue Congressional districts) are bursting under the pressure from voters for: Support for President Trump’s successful policies Support for President Trump’s popular policies that are yet-to-be-implemented – for example – More tax cuts Better healthcare options Building a…

Will Judge Kavanaugh be Confirmed?

Given the New Allegation, Will Judge Kavanaugh Still be Confirmed? Up until a few days ago, it looked like Judge Brett Kavanaugh of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, would sail along to a quick confirmation to the Supreme Court. His record was impeccable. His recommendations were stellar. His endorsements were numerous. But, the unexpected sexual assault allegation levied against Judge Kavanaugh (that was alleged to take place around 35 years ago) gave new ammunition to the Democrats and Leftists to try to stop the confirmation from ever taking place. Obviously, the Left didn’t want a Constitutional conservative to gain…

2018 Congressional Elections – End of a Century Long Political War?

The 2018 Congressional Elections are Literally the Culmination of a Century Long Political War This year, the 2018 Congressional Elections, will mark the end of a century long political war that has raged unabated between two competing, diametrically, and bitterly opposed  political ideologies. On the one hand is the system of individual freedoms and limited government that we call capitalism. It’s implemented in our Constitutional Republic. On the other hand is its arch-enemy, socialism, characterized by restricted individual freedoms, expansive big government that is extraordinarily wasteful, inefficient, and ineffective at solving most problems. Socialists prefer control in the hands of…
