Democrats Look Increasingly Like They Could Lose Senate Seats In November

 

What happened?

Via The Hill:

The battle for control of the Senate is looking worse and worse for Democrats, who just a month ago saw a path to the majority but now increasingly look like they could lose more seats and have a smaller minority next year.

Republicans have seen a bump in the polls in several key races since Labor Day. They believe momentum has flipped to their party since the fight over Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh polarized the electorate, hurting Democrats running for re-election in states were President Trump is popular.

Two states where Democrats had hopes of pulling major upsets — Texas and Tennessee — have moved in favor of Republicans. Races in Nevada and Arizona, two other states where Democrats had hoped to make gains, remain tight, but Republicans feel more confident about their candidates.

Meanwhile, the tide has moved against Democratic candidates in a couple of states that Trump won by double digits in 2016.

In North Dakota, Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp has fallen behind by double digits. And in Montana, Sen. Jon Tester (D), who seemed poised for victory a month ago, has seen his race tighten amid attacks by the president.

There is some good news for Democrats in the polls.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), the only Democrat to back Kavanaugh’s confirmation, has maintained a healthy average lead of 9 points in the polls, despite running in a state that Trump won by a whopping 42 points in 2016.

And Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.), long seen as vulnerable, is hanging onto an average poll lead of 3 points, despite voting against Kavanaugh.

But there are other chances for Republicans to grow their 51-49 majority.

Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill’s reelection race against Republican Josh Hawley remains tight as a wire, while Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) has drawn a tough challenger in Gov. Rick Scott (R).

In New Jersey, Sen. Bob Menendez (D) is ahead in polls but Republicans still think they have a chance of pulling off an upset.

Democrats argue that they have an advantage on healthcare, the number one issue for voters.

Pondering Problems Or Old Age Got Me Here

Willie says, lying around smoking “Weed”, pondering the problems of the world, realized that, at his age, he really  doesn’t  give a rat’s ass anymore!

If walking is good for your health, the postman would be immortal.

A whale swims all day, only eats fish, and drinks water, but is still fat.

A rabbit runs, and hops, and only lives15 years, while a tortoise

Trump Approval Jumps Ahead Of Obama’s Midterm Approval Rating

President Trump‘s approval rating before the November elections has jumped to a higher level than former President Obama’s ahead of the 2010 midterms, according to a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll

The poll found Trump’s approval rating at its highest level for that poll yet, at 47 percent. Obama’s approval rating was 45 percent around the same time in 2010, according to a similar NBC/Wall Street Journal poll taken in late October 2010. 

Obama’s approval rating was reaching a record low in October 2010, just before his party lost a significant number of seats in the House and Senate. 

Trump is a historically unpopular president among the general U.S. population, but consistently retains extremely high levels of Republican support. Recent polls have put him at around a 90 percent approval rating among Republicans. 

Many see the midterm elections as a referendum on the current president. 

Republicans and Democrats are facing a particularly tough election year, with vulnerable Democratic senators seeking to retain their seats in states Trump won by double digits in 2016 as Republicans deal with widespread Trump disapproval among suburban women and other groups. 

The new NBC/WSJ poll found voters more energized than they have been for years, with 72 percent of Democrats telling pollsters they are very interested in the upcoming election as 68 percent of Republicans said the same.

“Midterms are about mobilization, and we are headed into the stretch run with unprecedented enthusiasm among both parties,” Democratic pollster Fred Yang told NBC.

Overall, the poll found Democrats with a 9-point lead over Republicans in the battle for congressional control. Fifty percent of likely voters said they want Congress to flip to the Democrats while 41 percent said they want Republicans to retain majorities.

Those Of Us With Actual Native American Ancestry Would Like Elizabeth Warren To Shut Up!

 

Give it a rest Pocahontas!

Even the Indians would like you to stop claiming their heritage.

While it is a fact that my Father’s side of the family is 100% Irish, my Mother’s side is a whole different story.

The relevant to this little rant part being that my Maternal Great Grandmother was 100% Creek Indian.

I actually met the woman when I was 6 years old and she must have been in her 70’s at least at the time.

As a matter of fact, my Maternal Grandfather was a Half Breed, and was raised for a time on an actual Indian Reservation as a child.

I have seen his Bureau of Indian Affairs ID card with the number stamped on it.

Shut your mouth, quit lying about this to score political points and go away!

Even with documented proof of my heritage I identify as White.

I have nothing to gain by not doing so and don’t fret about this stuff in the first place.

Here is a little something for you, Pocahontas!

ANGRY DEM MOB Confronts McConnell in Restaurant – Man Slams Fists on Table – Then Throws McConnell’s Food Out the Door (VIDEO)

This is what DIMocrats do when they loose!!……Papa Mike

Thank you, Maxine Waters.

Crazed leftists took Maxine Waters’ marching orders and screamed at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) while he was dining with his wife, Elaine Chao at Havana Rumba in Louisville, Kentucky.

According to TMZ, 4 men were berating Mitch McConnell and the main aggressor slammed his fists on the Senator’s table screaming, “Why don’t you get out of here?  Why don’t you leave the entire country?”

The left-wing thug also grabbed Mitch McConnell’s doggie bag of leftovers, and chucked it out the door of the restaurant.

Others were screaming, “Ditch Mitch!”

The woman who shot the video tells us, before she started recording, the main aggressor slammed his fists down on McConnell’s table, grabbed his doggie bag and threw the food out the door of the restaurant.

The woman says the main gripe seemed to be the Senator’s stance on Social Security and health care.  McConnell recently said entitlement programs are the main cause of massive debt. The woman says before she started shooting, the main aggressor was screaming that McConnell was killing people with his views.

McConnell kept his cool and afterward thanked some of his supporters, shaking their hands.

Maxine Waters recently called on Democrats to form a mob to harass Republicans wherever they go.

“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. You push back on them and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” Maxine Waters said.

Because of Maxine Waters’ call to violence, Mitch McConnell, Ted Cruz, Secretary Nielsen and other Republicans have been chased out of restaurants by angry Democrat mobs.

Vote red all the way down the ticket in Novemeber–we want jobs, not mobs!

Not Exercising Worse For Your Health Than Smoking, Diabetes And Heart Disease, Study Reveals

Atlanta, Georgia (CNN)We’ve all heard exercise helps you live longer. But a new study goes one step further, finding that a sedentary lifestyle is worse for your health than smoking, diabetes and heart disease.

Dr. Wael Jaber, a cardiologist at the Cleveland Clinic and senior author of the study, called the results “extremely surprising.”
“Being unfit on a treadmill or in an exercise stress test has a worse prognosis, as far as death, than being hypertensive, being diabetic or being a current smoker,” Jaber told CNN. “We’ve never seen something as pronounced as this and as objective as this.”
 
 
Jaber said researchers must now convey the risks to the general population that “being unfit should be considered as strong of a risk factor as hypertension, diabetes and smoking — if not stronger than all of them.”
“It should be treated almost as a disease that has a prescription, which is called exercise,” he said.
Researchers retrospectively studied 122,007 patients who underwent exercise treadmill testing at Cleveland Clinic between January 1, 1991 and December 31, 2014 to measure all-cause mortality relating to the benefits of exercise and fitness. Those with the lowest exercise rate accounted for 12% of the participants.
The study was published Friday in the journal JAMA Network Open.
“Cardiovascular disease and diabetes are the most expensive diseases in the United States. We spend more than $200 billion per year treating these diseases and their complications. Rather than pay huge sums for disease treatment, we should be encouraging our patients and communities to be active and exercise daily,” said Dr. Jordan Metzl, sports medicine physician at the Hospital for Special Surgery and author of the book “The Exercise Cure.”

100 ISIS Terrorists Caught in Guatemala as Migrant Caravan of Military-Aged Males Marches to U.S.

A migrant caravan full of thousands of mostly Hondurans tore down the border gate in Guatemala and stormed the Mexico border Friday.

The horde of migrants are mainly military-aged virile males; this is an invasion.

On Wednesday, the caravan of Honduran migrants exploded to a whopping 4,000 people as it approached the Guatemala-Mexico border, despite President Trump’s warnings to cut off U.S. aid.

The caravan started out with approximately 1,300 people and ballooned as it made its way through Guatemala.

Certainly ISIS fighters and other dangerous drug cartel members and MS-13 gangsters latched onto the caravan to sneak into the U.S. pretending to be asylum seekers.

President Trump threatened to send the military to the southern border to push back the migrant caravan.

It gets worse…

The Guatemalan president announced this week the Central American country apprehended almost 100 ISIS terrorists.

The Secretary of Social Communication of the Presidency, Alfredo Brito, indicated that the data on these captures are “protected information of National Security”.

Judicial Watch sounded the alarm this week and reminded the public that several of the terrorists were Syrians caught with fake documents, according to Guatemala’s head of intelligence. At the same event, President Morales also revealed that Guatemalan authorities captured more than 1,000 gangbangers, including members of the MS-13.

The media constantly shows pictures and video clips of female migrants with crying babies, but the caravan is full of military-aged males; certainly ISIS terrorists and other dangerous criminals are embedded in the horde.

Video of the migrants breaching the gate in Guatemala clearly shows the majority to be young, virile males:

Outgoing UN Ambassador Nikki Haley Introduced As ‘Next President Of The US’ At Charity Dinner

 

Outgoing U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley poked fun at President Donald Trump, his longtime rival Sen. Elizabeth Warren and other high-profile politicians in a lighthearted speech on Thursday.

Haley showed off her aptitude for keeping a secret last week with a shocking resignation announcement, but she displayed a brand new talent during her speech in New York City on Thursday as she assumed the role of a comedian for the night.

“Two years ago Trump was here and made some waves with his remarks, so last year you went with Paul Ryan, who’s a Boy Scout and that’s fine, but a little boring. So this year, you wanted to spice things up again,” she quipped after being introduced as the “next president of the United States.”

Dear God, Hillary Clinton. Please, Just Go.

 

PICTURE BELOW POSTED BY……..PAPA MIKE

 

No one benefits from her latest venture back onto the political scene.

We’re three weeks out from the 2018 midterm election, and Hillary Clinton is popping up again like a Halloween ghoul who keeps rising from the grave to terrorize the American public; only this time accompanied by the increasingly #MeToo burdened uber-villain, Bubba.

The Clintons, it seems, can’t seem to call it quits, even if it means leaving members of their own party cringing and many more voters ready to “headdesk” themselves into a coma.

This time, it’s happening courtesy of a pay-through-the-nose-to-see-them rehab tour. Because if there’s one thing America hasn’t had enough of over recent decades, it’s efforts by the Clintons to recast themselves as normal, likeable people, as they cash checks and play the victim.

Previous editions of this show have included Hillary’s two Senate runs and two presidential runs, which, depending on one’s perspective, were either an attempt to show independence from her husband or to be compensated for his myriad screw ups.

But despite the last run ending with a loss to Donald Freaking Trump, the most flawed candidate Republicans could conceivably have run in 2016, it appears that nothing will get Hillary out of our political debate once and for all.

Hillary remains caught up in the delusion that the only reason she lost in 2016 was because of Russian interference. She does not seem to have fully processed the fact that she lost the electoral college, the only vote that counts.  She touts the fact that she got nearly three million more votes than Trump while conveniently leaving out that her tally of the vote still fell well below 50 percent.

Both of the major party nominees in 2016 were so unlikable, flawed and—let’s be candid—unethical that lots of us just couldn’t pull the lever for her even if we couldn’t stand Trump. According to a study from American National Election Studies, the words most associated by voters with Hillary in 2016 were “experienced liar.” Is it logical that she’d want to rehab her image, given all this? Perhaps. Is it possible? No. Do we need to watch her try? Definitely, definitely, definitely not.
