With the midterms now less than 100 days away, where do the Republicans as a party under Trump stand, and is the blue wave going to be as big as some predict?

You're forgetting the dark money and the Kochs.

Charles Koch, network send GOP a message: We're happy to back Democrats who share our policy goals

e-were-happy-to-back-democrats.html


Americans for Prosperity, the network backed by billionaire industrialist Charles Koch, said pro-growth Democrats may also get their support.
"If you are a Democrat and stand up to [Senator] Elizabeth Warren to corral enough votes for financial reform that breaks barriers for community banks and families, you're darn right we will work with you," CEO Emily Seidel told donors.
"I don't care what initials are in front or after somebody's name," Koch told reporters.

The message is, "Do what we say, and you get our big money. If you don't, we use our big money to unseat you." Lots of moderate Republicans learned that lesson.

Texas Senate contest nearly a dead heat: Ted Cruz leads Beto O'Rourke by 2 points, poll says

Cruz leads 41-39. If it's accurate — and there are doubters — it would represent a seismic shift in Texas politics, long dominated by Republicans.

I imagine a lot of stupid people will misrepresent my post above as a 'defense' of Trump, or, even more, a prediction he'll either retain or even gain seats. It's not.

When it comes to the topic specifically, the overwhelming statistics are that sitting presidents lose Congressional seats ...


... but especially during mid-term elections.

As Michigan voters head to polls, women are showing up

Aug. 7 (UPI) -- As Michigan voters head to the polls Tuesday to select who will represent them in November's general election, they'll have more than twice as many women to choose from on the congressional level than in any other primary in the past two decades.

With a roughly 57 percent increase in women filing to run in congressional races nationwide -- from 338 in 2016 to 530 this year -- Michigan is ahead of curve in what some are calling the latest "year of the woman."

Scarborough: Ohio election shows GOP becoming a ‘rural party’

GOP candidate Troy Balderson holds a narrow lead in the special election race for a House seat, but the result is close enough that it could trigger a recount under state law. Even if Balderson wins, the results are discouraging for Republicans given the district's GOP tilt. It had been held by the GOP since 1983, and Trump won the district by 11 points.

My responses to you reflect my disgust in the way you always challenge what some of us post. Because when doing so you always come from a place of complete ignorance.

After two years and all the Trump threads here, after all the facts we've posted, you still act like its no big deal, or you hadn't heard. All the while continuing to trounce on everyone and everything else. You latch onto all the bullshit and propaganda posted by the other trolls here to use as an irritant against others. You continue to deflect by referencing Obama and the Clinton's even though anything they may have done pales in comparison to Trump.

Then there is the excuse to bash everything because you and others here are cry babies. It's all you, jsf, kiki and sig do.

If you post like a stupid ass, moron, then I will continue to point that out.

I'm not the one crying about the media and how fucked up our government is. It's non stop with you. Some of us agree there is a lot wrong but compared with the rest of the world, we'd been doing pretty good until Trump. Think I'm wrong, asked the rest of the world. With you and others it's a constant delude of misinformation and conspiracies. Crying about this, crying about that.

With Trump you guys cry again. This time posting bullshit conspiracy after conspiracy and lie after lie. Show me one that is still holding up. You can't because try as they might, Trumps supporters at FOX and in the house can't prove a lie is real. To all of you our intelligence agencies are wrong and lying. Our Justice system and FBI are corrupt and so on and so on. Fuck you...

All this Jack because you're hateful, angry and feel as though you have been victimized in some way. To fucking bad. And don't for a minute think I'm somehow manic about whats going on because I'm not. I take pride in the way my government is standing up to this sick bastard Trump. And I love calling you an asshole as well. Both bring me joy.

No! I will never look ahead with Russian hackers working over time on this. It would be great to see, but if removing Trump from office is the objective then that won't matter unless the senate changes as well (as I'm sure you know).

Some new ideas for thwarting Trump from a recent WP article:

"But you can believe that Trump deserves impeachment, and also believe that promising you’ll push for it if you win control of the House just doesn’t accomplish very much, either substantively or politically.

First you have to confront a practical reality: It takes 67 votes to convict in the Senate, and there is almost nothing that will make 15 or 20 Republican senators (depending on how many are in the chamber next year) vote to remove Trump from office. So saying you support impeaching Trump actually means saying you support impeaching him in the House, then holding a trial in the Senate at which he will be acquitted."

"Here’s just some of what they can and should do to hold the administration, and Trump personally, accountable if they seize the House:

- Use their control of the Ways and Means Committee to obtain and release Trump’s tax returns so that we finally learn what he has been hiding.

- Hold hearings on the ways Trump is personally profiting off the presidency and potentially violating the Constitution’s emoluments clause.

- Mount a serious, comprehensive investigation into the Russian attack on the 2016 election and the Trump campaign’s cooperation with that attack.

- Investigate accusations of wrongdoing that have been leveled at Cabinet officials such as Wilbur Ross and Ryan Zinke.

- Demand answers from the administration on the decision-making process and effects of controversial administration policies, such as adding a citizenship question to the census, relaxing rules for power plant emissions, making it easier for private “universities” to scam students, and tearing children from their parents’ arms at the border.

All that has been missing because Republicans in Congress refuse to exercise even the mildest degree of oversight over the administration. If and when Democrats are able to do so, they will be serving an important function for the public, and yes, gaining political benefit from it at the same time."

Lead by setting a higher standard and demand the sh*t out of the admin in other words. I don't see any better way to go - keep the pressure up and hope their constant lies start to erode his base and the Republicans loyalty.

Then there's this hanky business: The illegal activity from Trump Foundation and the Trump Organization. One of which involves the kids, and any illegal activities associated with it would not be pardonable as it is under a different jurisdiction.
One has to wonder why Ivanka closed her business down so abruptly - why didn't she sell it? It had to be worth millions. Tax evasion perhaps?

Tweet says it well: "...the Trump Organization appears to be money-laundering operation while the Trump Foundation is more like a "GoFundMe" account for personal expenses."

The "latest" year of the woman, huh?

How many years in a row does that happen before we just start calling it "just another year"?

Great.

Took long enough.

First woman to hold a federal office was only 102 years ago... 4 years before woman's suffrage was recognized nationally.

Beto in beta: Is Ted Cruz's young challenger prepared for what's about to hit him?

Heading into the final stretch before Election Day, the political momentum in the race appears to be on O’Rourke’s side, with his attention-getting social media strategy, fawning media coverage (including a recent Vanity Fair piece that speculated he could run for president in 2020, even if he loses his bid for Senate), massive fundraising and packed crowds that seem to be growing bigger by the day.

WASHINGTON - The 2018 midterm terrain looks a lot different now than it did at the start of the campaigns. Races that many expected to be close, aren’t. Candidates that were assumed to be safe now find themselves in fights. And the Democrats have been the biggest beneficiaries of the changes.
