The November 6th elections have come and gone, with some very interesting changes and developments occurring throughout the night. Obviously, the biggest story of the night was the fact that Democrats have successfully reclaimed the House of Representatives by taking 26 or so seats, more than enough to give them a majority, slim as it may be.
And as it stands, the White House, obviously, is Republican, the Senate is Republican and now the House is Democrat. I have an awful lot of things to say about this, but I will do my best to keep it as short and concise as possible, while at least touching on the many things I want to discuss.
The first, and most important thing I want to mention is that, as predicted, there was no blue wave. Not even close to that. Yes, Democrats retook the House, which is unfortunate and will only serve to further divide this nation and hurt people in the individual districts, but no one can say that this is a blue wave. Furthermore, Republicans actually did a lot better than you might think.
The House is lost, and that is unfortunate, but one thing that needs to be mentioned is the great number of pickups we got in the Senate. Before the election, Democrats held 49 seats. Now, they only hold 44. Senators Heidi Heitkamp, Bill Nelson, Kyrsten Sinema, Joe Donnelly, Claire McCaskill and others all have been unseated. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) managed to get re-elected, but I find it rather ironic that he is the only Democrat that voted in favor of approving Brett Kavanaugh. The other Democrats who lost on Tuesday all voted against Kavanaugh, so that had some effect, I believe.
Not to mention that Ted Cruz managed to beat supposed Democrat superstar Beto O’Rourke in a race that shouldn’t have been anywhere near that close (though I suspect illegal votes are to blame, if the Project Veritas video covering illegal voting in the midterms is anything to go by). And in Florida, Rick Scott beat incumbent Bill Nelson, with another supposed Democrat superstar, Andrew Gillum, losing in another tight race.
The unfortunate thing is that Florida passed an amendment that will allow 1.4 million felons to vote, so I don’t have much hope for the state in the future. Of course, I don’t think all 1.4 million felons will vote, but felons tend to vote Democrat because Democrats also have a wanton disrespect for the rule of law and law enforcement. Not to mention that Cruz’s victory being about a 2 point margin is indicative of a blue trend in Texas (again, likely affected by illegal immigrants, but also likely affected by Leftists from California and New York moving there and voting for the policies and people that drove them out of those Leftist states in the first place).
Another bit of bad news is that, with Democrats in control of the House, there will definitely not be a wall getting built in the next two years and there definitely won’t be a repeal of Obamacare.
However, let’s move on to the better news. Apart from the pickups in the Senate, you also have to look at the fact that Democrats, at best, will simply be a lot of white noise over these next two years, as they have been over the past two years. Yes, they will launch investigation after investigation, and subpoena after subpoena, but what’s that going to amount to? They’ve been trying to prove Russian collusion for the past two years. Another two isn’t going to get them anything.
Not to mention that, while they might try to impeach Trump, they are not going to even come close to succeeding. Anything Democrats pass in the House will get stopped in the Senate. And an impeachment against Trump requires two-thirds of the SENATE, as well as approval from the VP, or enough votes to overturn the Vice President’s vote against impeachment.
So impeachment of the President would have to be a bipartisan effort, one that I don’t think will happen. Sure, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) might vote in favor of impeachment, but a lot of conservative, not to mention pro-Trump people, won in the Senate as well.
At most, the Democrats will be a major nuisance. Nothing will get passed, but not much was getting passed before anyway. Not to mention that Trump still has EO power, something that his predecessor set as a precedent for a tool for passing laws even when faced with an opposing party majority in the legislative branch.
And let’s not ignore the fact that Democrats winning in 2018 leaves Trump with a clear target for 2020. Trump has mastered the art of successfully putting the blame where it belongs: the Democrats. With nothing passing and Democrats being a massive force of obstruction, and little more, Trump can thoroughly expose the Democrats as little more than a pest that should not be in control of a doll house, much less of the House.
Now, these last two years should have logically led to Democrats suffering big losses in 2018. There was a lot of that in the Senate, but unfortunately, not so much in the House. But there is good news in Democrats taking some of these House seats. As Jake Tapper mentioned during his live coverage of the elections, many Never Trump Republicans were shown the door. Sure, some pro-Trump Republicans also lost, but it shows that going against the popular Republican President is not a solid campaign strategy.
Going forward, such losses should send a clear message that it’s best to support Trump and the MAGA agenda, instead of betraying your constituents. You would think that would be a common sense thing, but what can you do?
One other thing to mention that I want to at least talk about a little bit is that in Alabama and West Virginia, constitutional amendments were passed that protect the unborn. According to the Daily Wire: “In Alabama, voters approved an amendment to the state’s constitution affirming that the unborn have a right to life… In West Virginia, voters approved an amendment to their state constitution, which could end the practice of taxpayers funding elective abortions.” Not to mention that Alabama also passed an amendment that would allow for the Ten Commandments to be placed in public places. So these things are all great pro-life and pro-religious freedom news to take away from the elections.
Now, another thing I want to mention is the fact that, since Democrats won’t be able to pass laws in the Senate, any attempt at getting rid of the GOP tax cuts will be completely futile. We might not be able to pass anything, but neither will they. And these tax cuts are good for quite some time.
Yet another thing to mention is that, so far, Trump is doing far better than Obama did, electoral-wise. Let’s not forget that in 2010, Democrats lost 63 seats in the House and 6 seats in the Senate. THAT was a wave election.
So let’s look at some numbers over the years, according to Lawrence McDonald, who quotes data from the NY Times. In 2010, Obama lost 63 seats in the House. In 1994, Clinton lost 52. In 1958, Eisenhower lost 48. In 1974, Ford lost 48. In 1966, LBJ lost 47. In 1946, Truman lost 45. In 2006, Bush lost 30. In 1950, Truman lost 29. In 1982, Reagan lost 26.
Wanna know how many Trump lost? The same amount as Reagan, which is a pretty good sign, if you ask me, considering Reagan went on to be re-elected in the biggest landslide in U.S. political history.
Now, is this situation ideal? Definitely not. If I could have things my way, every Republican in every race, Senate, House, local, etc. would’ve won. But all things considered, we also stand to gain an awful lot in 2020, and I have no doubt Trump will be re-elected, with Republican control of Congress once again.
The last thing I want to mention, that ultimately has the biggest hand in putting a smile on my face after the elections, is that regardless of who controls the House, who controls the Senate, who controls the White House, it is Jesus Christ that is our ultimate Representative, Senator, and President. No matter who gains control of anything anywhere, Jesus is King. God is in control.
It’s no surprise to Him that Democrats retook the House. And He wouldn’t have allowed it if it weren’t part of His grander plan for us.
The good thing about losing sometimes is that losses can make you humble. After 2016, we were grateful to the Lord for the massive win. After 2018, we are still grateful to Him, and we come to Him in supplication and prayer, that He might heal our nation and that we might continue seeking His blessings.
I trust the Lord, and if He decides Democrats retake the House, then who in the world am I to argue? I merely implore to Him that this will be the definitively last time Democrats ever win anything again.
“The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; He frustrates the plans of the peoples. The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the plans of His heart to all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people whom He has chosen as His heritage!”

With the elections happening tomorrow, let’s take a look at the latest figures released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) regarding our economic situation in terms of jobs created, unemployment rates, and rising wages.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics: “Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 250,000 in October, and the unemployment rate was unchanged at 3.7 percent.”
That number is significantly higher compared to September’s surprisingly low number of 134,000 jobs created during the month, which was lower than anticipated. However, as I explained in the article covering the September report from the BLS, one explanation that the Bureau gives is that Hurricane Florence might have had some significant impact on the jobs numbers.
Now, at the end of the report, the Bureau informs us that they had made revisions for both September’s jobs report and August’s jobs report. In their revisions, September’s jobs report was revised down from that 134,000 to 118,000, which is not great, but indicates more jobs were created in the prior month. As the report explains, while September’s numbers were revised down, August’s numbers were revised up. August’s original number was 270,000 and was revised up to 286,000, which makes up the difference for September’s numbers.
Over the last 3 months, the average jobs gain has sat around 218,000. Over the last year, the average jobs gain has been 211,000, so seeing 250,000 in October is fantastic, as that shows higher-than-average job growth.
Moving on to unemployment rates, as I mentioned earlier, the overall rate remains unchanged at 3.7%.
For adult men, unemployment rose by 0.1 percentage points from last report’s numbers to 3.5%. For adult women, the number currently stands at 3.4%. For teenagers, the number went down significantly from 12.8% in the last report to 11.9%, so almost a complete percentage point. For whites, the number remains at 3.3%. For blacks, the number went up by 0.2 percentage points to 6.2%, which is not great. I would like to see that number go down, as we were seeing earlier this year. For Asians, the number dropped by 0.3 percentage points from 3.5% last report to 3.2%. Finally, Hispanic unemployment rate went down by 0.1 percentage points from 4.5% last report to 4.4%.
So overall, there was little to no change made to specific unemployment rates. Teenagers saw the biggest drop in unemployment, followed by small changes for Asians and Hispanics, with blacks unfortunately seeing a bit of a higher rate.
Employment in manufacturing increased by 32,000 jobs and has added 296,000 jobs throughout the year so far. Construction also rose by 30,000 in October, adding 330,000 throughout the year.
Moving on to wages, the report shows: “average hourly earnings for all employees on private nonfarm payrolls rose by 5 cents to $27.30. Over the year, average hourly earnings have increased by 83 cents, or 3.1 percent. Average hourly earnings of private-sector production and nonsupervisory employees increased by 7 cents to $22.89 in October.”
The overall economy is currently booming, largely thanks to Trump’s economic policies.
Now, I’m old enough to remember Obama saying that a stagnating America was the “new normal” and that we better get used to it. How Obama could ever have been considered to be “Presidential” at any capacity, particularly more so than Trump, is entirely beyond me. Those words appeared to be words of surrender. That we would never see greatness in our country again.
Of course, knowing Obama did everything he could to fundamentally change and destroy our country, saying that America’s best days were behind us was simply part of the whole thing. Matter of fact, I would be willing to bet at least part of the reason Trump made his slogan: “Make America Great Again” was because of Obama’s attitude and words that America will only see stagnation from that point on.
And now, only a couple of years later, we’re seeing the realization of that very slogan. Sure, there is still an awful lot of work to do. We still don’t have a wall at the southern border, largely because of RINOs and Leftists who stand in the way of our border safety, but we are doing fantastic in many other areas.
And making America’s economy boom again is a big part of Making America Great Again. It would be hard to make it great again if we are not doing well economically. It’s hard to do much with next to no money. But that is not a problem we see today, now that Obama is out of the White House.
Part of the reason I seriously doubt there will not be anything close to a blue wave tomorrow is because I believe people see the difference Trump’s economy is making. During the Obama years, the president basically wrote off manufacturing and blue-collar jobs and literally said they were never coming back. Now, they’re back and they brought some friends, too.
The fact that the Democrat Party has essentially abandoned the manufacturing industry and just about every other blue-collar industry, while Trump and the GOP have done tremendous help with regard to those industries tells me those people will not vote Democrat again, if they have in the past.
The Democrats have abandoned blue-collar workers, white people, middle-America in favor of illegal immigrants. This will come back to bite them.
Regardless of what many polls say, I don’t see a blue wave happening. Now, does that mean the Democrats could take back the House (notice how the House is the only thing they talk about, not the Senate, which begs the question of “if there is a blue wave, why would Democrats not win Senate elections too?”) and do some real damage? Yeah. There is a chance, slim as I believe it to be, that Democrats could take back the House, albeit by a relatively small majority. But regardless of how small, a majority is a majority and Democrats have shown themselves to be very dangerous when they DON’T have power. I couldn’t imagine what they would do WITH power.
Democrats winning back the House by a slim majority may not be the coveted “blue wave”, but it still can be dangerous. All logic, all rationale, indicates Republicans winning tomorrow. These great economic numbers, as we have seen, can only be achieved when Republicans are in control.
And the good news is that I do believe Republicans will definitely retain and even gain seats in the Senate, and I have faith that they will also retain the House. I won’t go by early voting statistics one way or the other because some states do not have early voting. Often times, Democrats are ahead in early voting, even when Republicans end up winning. The fact that Republicans seem to be in the lead currently doesn’t mean much to me.
Now, it goes without saying that it is our civic duty as Americans to vote, regardless of what party you vote for. But it is imperative for Republicans to take this election as seriously as we did the last one. Tomorrow, we will see if we are a nation that worries more about creating jobs or creating mobs.
So please, go out to vote. And if I may make a recommendation, vote Republican. We have seen for the last two years how toxic and flat out mentally ill and evil the Left is. And that’s when they are outside of power. We can’t let them back in power, even if by a slim majority.
I’m not saying this jobs report will definitely boost Republicans, but it should. It gives us one final reminder of one of the things we are fighting for pre-election day.
But no matter what, I am glad to see such great jobs reports throughout this year. I just hope we can continue seeing them like this, unimpeded by the damage the Democrats could cause.

I feel compelled to say this right now: What I will mostly be talking about is largely a conspiracy theory. As such, it should not be taken to be the absolute truth. However, the reason for me to write this is because the timing and the magnitude of this targeting of Democrats is highly suspicious to me and I have some theories to go along with these stories.
As you read this article, please keep in mind that these are merely unproven thoughts and theories that may never even be proven.
Over the last few days, a number of suspicious packages have been delivered to prominent members of the Democrat Party and to the news media, particularly CNN. Most of these packages appear to have been pipe bombs, with some having been suspicious powder.
Thankfully, no one is hurt. At least one of the bombs appears to have been a fake one, according to the New York Times, who cited experts who said that the bombs were “the kind more typically depicted on television and in movies, rather than devices capable of detonating.”
A site called Law and Crime released an x-ray picture of one of the pipe bombs, which shows wires sticking out of both ends of the bomb. We know this is not a functioning pipe bomb because pipe bombs do not have wires sticking out of both sides. They are more like dynamite, with the wire sticking out of only one side.
Now, let’s consider who these packages were sent to. They were sent to former President Barack Obama, failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton (and thus, former POTUS Bill Clinton), Rep. Maxine Waters, former AG Eric Holder, a CNN studio in New York, former VP Joe Biden and George Soros.
None of these people, except for Maxine Waters have strong political power, not even Biden. George Soros’s power comes through his money in affecting politics, but he does not have direct political power, at least in the same way that Waters does. It’s important to understand this because the Left’s rhetoric is that it was a right-winger who sent those packages. If it really were a right-winger, what strategic advantage would Republicans have for someone sending bombs to anyone, let alone people who are under conservatives’ radar? It wouldn’t make any sense in the least, particularly done this way.
No right-winger in his right mind would send a bomb to Democrats 2 weeks before an election if they were hoping for Republicans to win. No right-winger in his right mind would send a bomb to anyone in the first place, but still.
Let’s also consider the timing of these packages. For one, they were sent within days, and in some cases, within hours of each other. They were also sent 2 weeks before one of the biggest elections of our lifetimes. AND they were also sent shortly after Trump, rightfully, capitalized on the migrant caravan heading towards our border, which as I have said in a previous article, could help Trump and Republicans in the midterms.
All of these packages were sent to well-known, but next to irrelevant people within the Democrat Party and the news media. While it would take a crazy person to send bombs to people through the mail, it would take an especially moronic crazy person to send bombs to high-profile figures on the Left and expect the packages not to be intercepted and kept away from the supposedly intended targets.
All of this, alongside the Left’s quick capitalization of placing the blame on Trump (which is frankly expected, but still significant) that makes me seriously question this entire thing.
Over the last couple of years, and particularly the last few months, we have seen an increase in violence coming from the Left directed towards the Right. This sort of thing tends to have an effect at the polling booths. I certainly know that I will vote Republican at least partly because of the Left’s behavior over the past couple of months and years. So I don’t think it’d be a far-fetched theory, though very much a conspiracy theory without proof, to believe that this is largely theatrics meant to garner momentum for Democrats.
Again, we have to consider the fact that the Left has been acting horrendously these last few months particularly, and we have to also consider the fact that the migrant caravan would garner momentum for Republicans.
Have you noticed how the caravan, which has reportedly swelled to over 14,000 illegals, has largely disappeared from the news-cycle apart from news of Trump sending troops to the border?
With all of this in mind, I would not be surprised if this all turned out to be theatrics and a hoax to drive people to vote against Trump’s “anti-media” and anti-Leftist rhetoric.
Again, you have to consider that the media has capitalized in blaming Trump for all of this. Some are directly blaming him for sending the bombs, while others are marginally more “sensible” and are blaming his rhetoric for “emboldening” a crazy right-winger now dubbed the “MAGA bomber”, with that hashtag trending on Twitter.
Given the nature of the Left to do this sort of thing to Republicans, and given that they often blame things on Trump and other conservatives without a shred of evidence (see how they treated Kavanaugh), and I can’t help but think that this was largely orchestrated to drive people to vote Democrat and to perhaps even justify the actual attacks happening against conservatives.
Let’s not forget that the Deep State told George W. Bush that there were WMDs in Iraq when there were none. Let’s not forget that the Left, with the help of the media, often fabricate stories to target conservatives.
The fact that the people targeted were all well-known Leftists, most whom do not have political power so there’d be no real point for a right-winger to target them, these packages have been delivered at a high frequency and that it all comes at an opportune time for the Left, 2 weeks before the election (remember the slew of women saying Trump sexually assaulted them 3 weeks before the 2016 election?) all leads me to be highly suspicious of this entire thing.
Once again, I really must insist that no one take this to be the reality of the situation. This is largely a conspiracy theory with no proof of being the absolute truth. I am merely expressing my suspicions regarding this entire thing. I am not ruling out the possibility of a crazed right-winger actually perpetrating these things. But I particularly must insist that this is not conservatives’ MO, and that this is pretty exclusively what Leftists tend to do, so that draws more suspicion.
As a rule of thumb, I do not trust what the MSM tells me about anything. I especially do not trust people who choose to capitalize on tragedy (or potential tragedy) for political gain as the Left often does and as many people including CNN President Jeff Zucker, lunatic actor Jim Carrey, 1/1024th conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin and others are doing.
So any sort of story that puts the blame on Trump, his rhetoric surrounding the fake news media (there’s a word for what the media is doing regarding all of this. I believe it is called “irony”), or anything that tries to, without proof, put the blame on Trump and/or conservatives I will simply not believe.
My belief is that this is largely theatrics meant to garner momentum for Democrats now that they are having actual doubts about their coveted “blue wave”. It could even be meant to serve as justification for the horrendous behavior they have shown towards conservatives.
By no means am I claiming that that’s the reality of the situation. I cannot prove that this is what is actually happening. I am merely suggesting that all of the circumstances surrounding these events are far too suspicious for me to take at face value.
But as I cannot prove anything regarding whether or not the Left is making all of this up for political gain (even if the circumstances point to that), all I will do for now is pray that this sort of thing does not happen to anyone else, Republican or Democrat, and that there will be a Christian revival that will lead to this sort of scare to no longer happen, particularly with such frequency.

One of the biggest stories this week, which will likely continue being as big, or even bigger in the days and weeks to come, is the fact that anywhere between 5,000 and 10,000 illegal immigrants are marching towards the United States, likely seeking “asylum”. It will soon be clear why I am putting that in quotation marks.
Anyway, I say that the caravan is in that range because I have seen multiple different numbers. Many report 5,000 to 7,000, while others like the Daily Wire report 10,000, so it’s not entirely clear which number is most accurate. But regardless of the actual number, that is a lot of people staging what can only be described as an invasion, even if it is an unarmed (though I imagine many people are armed) invasion of the U.S., which is the reason Trump is perfectly justified in using the military to stop this caravan, if that is the route he opts in taking.
However, reading the title, you must know that there is something within this story that yours truly sees as a good thing. I can assure you, I am not becoming a Leftist. I’d rather bathe in a tub of acid than be a Leftist.
I am, however, seeing what can be considered the big picture here. Allow me to explain.
Reading the news of the caravan starting up, leaving Honduras, swelling in size, and forcefully pushing past Mexican police and MPs, how does that make you feel? I imagine disturbed at the very least, or even downright terrified. If so, you can be safe in knowing that you are not alone in this.
While the Democrats might see this caravan as a good thing (without necessarily saying that outright) and while they might choose to ignore it as though it’s not happening, we can’t help but acknowledge it and see it as a very bad thing.
Let’s not beat around the bush. This is an invasion. With this many people, likely being helped in being fed, sheltered, etc. (likely by George Soros, but I can’t prove that), all seeking “asylum”, you can’t help but think of this as an invasion. And by the way, I put asylum in quotation marks because these people aren’t seeking asylum from their own countries. If you’ve seen the pictures, you’ll see some people waving the Honduran flag, the Mexican flag and whatever country’s flag these people are from.
If they were seeking asylum or refuge from those countries, they wouldn’t be proudly flying those countries’ flags. When have you seen a North Korean defector waving the North Korean flag? Or a Cuban escapee waving the Cuban flag? When have you seen someone escaping oppression, socialism, etc. waving the flag and proudly representing the country they just “escaped” from?
These aren’t refugees, or asylum seekers, or immigrants. They are invaders.
Knowing all of this, don’t you think this will make Americans like me and you want a border wall at the Southern border? The reason the Great Wall of China was initially built was because during the Qin Dynasty, the First Emperor of Qin wanted to prevent invasion from northern nations. Sure, later it was used to protect Silk Road trade, but it was initially built to guard China from invasion.
Likewise, we see something similar. We have nations down south who don’t want to invade the country themselves, waging war against us, but nations who allow their people to illegally migrate to another country en masse.
It may not be any one particular nation that is the invading force of this caravan, but it is those nations’ people who are forcefully making their way here, all-the-while still representing their countries of origin through the proud waving of their flags.
The idea of a foreign entity invading the U.S. is downright terrifying and should put everyone on edge. This is what we are facing right now, so we have to come up with viable solutions. Allowing this caravan entry into the country means other caravans popping up and doing the same, eventually leading to the utter invasion and transformation of the U.S. away from its founding principles (which are already under attack by the Left anyway) and into a country similar to the rest of the continent.
The blessing in disguise that this caravan brings is that people might become more warm to the idea of a border wall.
When Trump initially came up with the idea of building a “big, beautiful wall” in our border with Mexico, many people loved it, but many people also hated it. The media, unsurprisingly, was adamantly against it, as were the Democrats.
But given how toxic the Left has shown themselves to truly be, I imagine there will be more and more people choosing to vote Republican this November. As time goes on, the media has been a little less adamant to claim victory of a “blue wave”, saying that it might be a close race. Even DNC Chairman Tom Perez recently said that “we (Democrats) always knew that this election was going to be close.”
At the start of the year, everyone was making the same claims that they were making in 2016: Trump is going to lose, Democrats are going to win in the biggest landslide ever, blah, blah, blah.
And now, he says it’s going to be close?
This sort of thing tends to be the case as the race grows near. People become slightly less confident and think it will be closer than previously anticipated. But this sort of thing, coming after a year of touting a blue wave that would sweep the Republicans and crush Trump, is indicative that the Democrats legitimately fear there will be no such blue wave.
Why? Because their attitude and actions have been so toxic that they’re driving people away. Not that they would ever admit to that, of course, but the results will show. The “#WalkAway” movement started for a reason and I believe it has far more traction than the Left believes it has.
This caravan can only help Republicans and Trump come November. It’s indicative of the failed immigration policies of the Democrats that have slowly, but surely been eating away at our border safety, leading millions to enter the country illegally. Now, we have large groups of people forcefully making their way to the U.S., not in the hopes of assimilating, being part of our capitalistic economic system, but in the hopes of exploiting it at best and changing it at worst.
Trump, for his part, is rightly putting the blame on the Democrats. It’s THEIR immigration policy and lack of enforcing immigration laws that has led to this invasion.
Now, the ironic thing is that a recent NBC/WSJ poll, which has Trump at a record high of 47% approval rating (record high for the poll itself), says that Democrats are ahead when it comes to the issue of immigration (up by 4 points on Repubs). Meaning that likely voters trust Democrats a little more on immigration than they do the GOP.
Well, while I find that awfully suspicious given Trump’s high approval in the poll itself and given that immigration is what Trump won on, I doubt such an advantage is actually there. It might’ve been back during the summer when the Left were screaming at Trump over keeping kids in cages (which is what Obama was doing, but no one pay attention to that) and separating kids from their parents (which Clinton started, but again, no one pay attention to that). That’s when Democrats might’ve taken the lead in immigration, but definitely not now.
And with this caravan, there’s no way people aren’t at the very least disturbed by it enough to want to build a wall.
I hate the idea of a caravan of illegals making their way to the U.S. I imagine many people feel the same way. But while Trump might be able to stop this caravan, and God-willing he will, what’s to stop another caravan in the future from popping up?
Trump won’t be President for life like his Chinese counter-part. Eventually, someone else will be President. Hopefully a Republican, but who’s to say that they would be able, or even willing, to stop a future caravan?
A wall, on the other hand, is imposing and permanent (unless you tear it down, of course, but you get my point). A wall would/will be more able to stop invaders. Of course, it will also have to be accompanied by actual enforcement of our immigration laws, but a wall is at least a start.
This caravan, quite frankly, terrifies me. I am not in a border state, so I will not be directly affected by this, but the number of people coming in here illegally, who will definitely be voting Democrat because Democrats don’t care about voting laws (or any laws that don’t benefit them), as well as the fact that, if not stopped, this will definitely encourage more and more caravans popping up makes me afraid for our future.
Because while today it may be anywhere between 5,000 and 10,000, more caravans means more and bigger numbers to the point where we are either completely overrun or our economy is so garbage that people won’t want to come anymore because it’d be no different from Central America. Frankly, it could easily become both.
At this point, I don’t see voting Republican this November as voting for a political party that I more agree and identify with. I see it as the safeguarding of our country both now and in the future. The Democrats have proven they have no desire to protect America, particularly as it is now. They wish to transform it no matter what, even if that means being overrun by illegals.
I’m not gonna be voting Republican just to punish the Democrats for their recent behavior. I’m doing it because they seem to be the only ones that actually give a damn about protecting this country.
This is no longer about certain policies working or not. It’s about the survival of our country as we know it. It’s about defending our country from foreign invaders.
Everyone says this is the most important election of our lifetimes, or at least one of them. They’re certainly not wrong, because this means we either protect our nation from future invasions and the evils of the Left, or we surrender to future invasions and the evils of the Left.

I don’t know if I have written an article where I don’t decry that people who tend to vote Democrat also tend to be ignorant of facts and/or reality. It is not meant to serve as an insult to Democrat voters, but rather, a warning that their vote is helping evil people who wish to take away their freedoms.
Knowing this, I cannot say I am surprised when Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips could not find a single Beto supporter in Texas A&M who could name even one of his accomplishments.
The video (below) begins with Cabot asking some students who they would vote for if the election were held the following day. Unsurprisingly, many said they would vote for Beto for different reasons. One of them said they would vote for Beto because she is a woman, and another said because she believes Democrats help poor people.
Yeah, they help poor people stay poor, but whatever.
In any case, Cabot then followed up by asking them if there were any accomplishments that would make Beto “a good person for office”. As you know by the title of this article, you know that not one of them could point to anything. At best, the only thing they could point to is him being popular; getting his name out there. If that’s the case, then I would imagine Kim Kardashian is just as qualified as Beto O’Rourke to be in the United States Senate based on that alone.
The woman who pointed towards his popularity could not really come up with an actual career accomplishment for Beto, saying she wasn’t as educated as she would like to be.
Another student tried to point to the fact that he’s “been working really hard with everything he’s been doing around Texas.” To Beto’s credit, he has been going around Texas a lot, so he is getting out there unlike a certain failed Presidential candidate who took her election for granted. But “working really hard” is not a career accomplishment. If that’s the argument in Beto’s favor, the same case can be made for Ted Cruz, but accentuated because he’s actually in the Senate and has been doing this for a few years now.
But the same student that tried to argue that his hard work is something to look towards also says that Beto “doesn’t really have the platform to make a huge difference right now.”
Then why vote for him at all? Typically, a political candidate has a platform to make an immediate difference. Whether they stick to it or not is a different issue, but not even having a platform to “make a huge difference right now” should come off as somewhat of a red flag for this student.
Another student actually offered a little bit more (at least in terms of word count, not in terms of substance), saying that Beto might not have the experience, but he would get it as a Senator. Basically, he was trying to compare being a U.S. Senator to getting an entry level job.
Now, as a young man also looking for a job (that pays), I get what he’s saying. I often come across entry level positions that require a college degree (which I’m working towards) and a few years of experience in the field. You have to have a job to get experience but you also need experience to get a job. Such is the paradoxical problem for a young man in America. But Cabot himself argues that there’s a difference between an entry level job and being a Senator.
But the student kept trying to argue that “you can be as informed about a position without actually doing it.” Which is not true at all. Without being a Senator, you cannot fully understand what it is to be a Senator. And while you can learn an awful lot and be as informed about it as you can be, actually doing it is different from imagining yourself doing it, even if you’re well-informed.
For example, I could learn as much as I possibly could about the job my mom has. But that doesn’t mean I would be able to do it just as well as her or even properly at first.
So considering this is a Senate position we’re talking about, what would the reason be for going for someone who has no experience or much knowledge about the job, and apparently no platform or accomplishments to brag about, when you can go for someone who is experienced, knows a lot about the job, and has accomplishments to his name?
Speaking just in terms of this alone, the best choice would be Ted Cruz. If you’re a hardcore Democrat voter, of course, none of that would matter. To them, any Democrat, regardless of experience or accomplishments, is better than any Republican. Which is something that I can understand. To me, just about any Republican is better than a Democrat. So I can understand such a mindset.
But if you’re talking about accomplishments, experience, etc. aside from everything else, then Ted Cruz should still be considered the best candidate even by Democrat standards. Of course, putting everything else in there such as policy, beliefs, etc., then Ted Cruz is a million times better than O’Rourke, who would wind up as yet another Pelosi puppet at best.
In any case, after a little bit of banter of the students’ reasons for voting for Beto, the video ends with some conservative college students saying they will vote for Ted Cruz and offering pretty good reasons.
That portion begins with one of the students hilariously answering Cabot’s question of naming Beto’s accomplishments with: “Unless you count going to jail for DWI as an accomplishment, then no.”
I honestly laughed out loud with that one. Even PolitiFact, the left-leaning “fact-checking” site confirms the fact that O’Rourke was arrested for DWI in 1998, and was even arrested for burglary in 1995, but the case was “disposed of in February 1996”, according to PolitiFact.
Regardless, the first person that told Cabot that he would vote for Ted Cruz said that he had voted for him in the past, and he believes Cruz supports family, which according to the student, is “a very important Texas value”. In a perfect world, that would be a very important world value, not just restricted to Texas, but we don’t live in a perfect world, do we?
The second student to say he would vote for Cruz said that Cruz stands for freedom, such as the freedom to own guns, and that he’s good on immigration, all of which are exceedingly true.
So at least the video ends in a good note. But returning to the Beto supporters, that further shows people that Democrat voters don’t tend to stay informed about issues and candidates. The problem arises in the fact that there is also a slew of misinformation out there, particularly in the fake news media. Now, if the Orange County millennials are anything to go by, young people don’t tend to watch the news. So they don’t tend to think that the hoax that is Russian collusion is a key issue for them, or whatever Trump says about horseface (in my opinion, he was being too nice to Stormy. The other end of the horse is really more accurate of a description).
This whole thing highlights the need to stay informed about people, issues, and what people think about certain issues. To the Left, illegal immigration is good and gun-ownership is bad; MS-13 are angels while NRA members are terrorists. Sometimes, in certain areas, they try to hide who they are (i.e. McCaskill trying to hide how anti-gun she really is). So the need to stay informed about people is very important.
Individually, those students should at the very least look up things Beto has done in the past (apart from his criminal background, at least) and get themselves informed about him. It’s really the least they could do for themselves. And God-willing, doing extensive research will lead them to change their mind about Beto and decide to go for someone who is not going to destroy Texas as much as he can.

It is safe to say that our current political climate has gone well-beyond toxic and entered the realm of violence. Not only are you not allowed to think a certain way, you will be punished for thinking a certain way. Anyone who utters a conservative thought, who dons a MAGA hat, who openly supports this country or their local GOP candidate is considered less than human, and thus, expendable.
Though we have not quite gotten to the point where we are outright killing each other Civil War-style, that certainly seems to be the direction we’re headed. Tensions aren’t being de-escalated, and it certainly doesn’t help that nut-jobs like Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, Maxine Waters and many in the MSM, particularly CNN, encourage this violent behavior against the Right.
But here’s the thing: these Leftists, as unhinged, dangerous and evil as they might be, are also huge cowards.
Allow me to elaborate. One particular trend I’ve noticed as of late is that whenever there is violent confrontation between Leftists and Right-wingers, the Left had some sort of advantage. Be it strength in numbers, strength in weaponry, or simply physical strength against someone who is of the fairer sex.
Breitbart News has documented 603 acts of violence and/or harassment that the media has approved of thus far. But you can add another 2 to that list, since in Nevada, a Leftist operative of a Soros-funded organization physically assaulted the female Republican campaign manager for GOP gubernatorial nominee Adam Laxalt. According to the Daily Wire, this is the nut-job’s second time being arrested for assaulting a Republican woman.
The second would be a small Antifa group in Portland, OR, where I used to live, harassing and verbally accosting a 9/11 widow until a group of counter-protesters, some of whom were larger men than the “man” who accosted the widow, chased the small group away from the woman.
Looking over the rap sheet of acts of violence/harassment, we can see things like: Sen. Susan Collins being sent a letter filled with ricin to her home, a Republican candidate being sucker-punched in a Minnesota restaurant, a FEMALE Republican State Representative being assaulted in Minnesota, a female conservative reporter being threatened with rape by an elderly Leftist man (and feminists defending said man, even though we’re supposed to believe all women), CNN anchor Don Lemon defending the mob that chased Ted Cruz and his family out of a restaurant by saying the mob had the Constitutional right to do that (spoiler alert: they didn’t), and perhaps more prominently, a Leftist protester kicking a pro-life woman.
There are also other things, such as a Leftist attacking a Republican House candidate in Northern California with a switchblade, a Trump supporter being attacked by a punk rocker in one of the rocker’s own shows (and being kept from fighting back by the other attendees), and who could forget the shooting at a Virginia baseball practice that targeted Republicans and sent Rep. Steve Scalise to the hospital?
What many of these incidents have in common is that the Leftist attackers have the confidence to attack or harass someone. But when an equal or greater force meets these Leftists, they deflate like a badly baked soufflé. I’m sure you’ve seen some videos of Leftist thugs getting beaten up by counter-protesters. When things get a little too violent and the Left thinks they can take someone on, if they don’t have some sort of advantage, they completely fall apart and retreat.
Because at that point it’s either that or getting their butts kicked.
But the entire thing exposes these two things about the Left: 1) they are evil, otherwise they would never dare harass or attack someone for a petty reason like a political disagreement and 2) they are cowardly, only daring to take action when they feel they have some sort of advantage, be it a weapon, physical dominance over a woman, or strength in numbers.
Whenever we talk about gun control, the Left will always utter taunts like “why do you need a weapon? Are you just not manly enough?” which is especially rich considering that they heavily scrutinize any man that even remotely appears to do something manly, and considering the fact that many on the Left could easily be considered beta males.
But they utter such a taunt because they want to make gun-owners appear to be cowardly, hiding behind a gun. And yet, it is strictly the Left who uses guns to do a shooting. You will never see a conservative shooting up an establishment with the intention of killing Democrats. That’s something only the Left has been documented to do. Why? Because of the previously-listed reasons: they are evil and cowardly.
The Virginia baseball field shooter was reportedly shouting about healthcare. Instead of trying to win elections, he opted to simply exterminate the Republicans in Congress, or at least as many as he could. That is not only evil, but also massively cowardly.
As are the rest of Antifa and anyone who wants to pretend to fight for something worthwhile on the Left (of which there is nothing). They accost Right-wingers whenever they feel they have some sort of advantage. But at the first sign of equal or greater opposition, they become emasculated and retreat.
Now, if this were a war, that’d be understandable. Only someone with a death-wish would willingly throw themselves into a disadvantage. You attack when you feel you have some sort of advantage, for the most part. However, this is not war (yet) and these are not soldiers fighting for their country.
These are children who failed to grow up, at least mentally and emotionally, and pretend to fight fascism all-the-while employing the exact same tactics the Fascist black-shirts and the Nazi brown-shirts employed to gain power. These are not soldiers fighting the Taliban. These are children fighting law-abiding citizens who disagree with them. People who are simply trying to enjoy a meal, or walk down the street, or express their beliefs.
These are people that think they are expressing their beliefs by acting in the way they do. People who simultaneously deny others their right to free speech if that speech is different from their own.
Earlier, I mentioned Don Lemon saying these mobsters have a Constitutional right to do what they did to Ted Cruz and his family. To quote, here’s what he said: “… But that doesn’t mean that people don’t get to object. That’s your right as an American to object. It’s covered in the First Amendment… In the Constitution, you can protest whenever and wherever you want. It doesn’t tell you that you can’t do it in a restaurant, that you can’t do it on a football field. It doesn’t tell you that you can’t do it on a cable news – you can do it wherever you want.”
Aside from being a notorious racist, Don Lemon is also a massive moron. You can protest in public areas, but not in private property. You need the permission of the owner to protest in private property. But beyond arguing against such a stupid argument, let me take a step back here. THESE ARE NOT PROTESTERS! THESE ARE RAGE-FILLED MOBS CHASING PEOPLE OUT OF RESTAURANTS!
A peaceful protester will not accost someone. That goes against the definition of a peaceful protest. To call these people anything other than a mob is asinine. And I find it fascinating that Don Lemon thinks these people have the right to do this, but Ted Cruz and his family don’t have the right to enjoy a meal in a restaurant.
But anyway, that’s mostly just a tangent that I really wanted to cover here just to expose Don Lemon as the piece of crap that he is. A racist, a hypocrite and a massive moron.
Returning to the overall point, it becomes clear to anyone with eyes and a functioning brain that these “protesters” are nothing but a mob. That these people are evil and cowardly, only daring to get violent if they feel they have some sort of advantage.
Again, these are not soldiers. These are very privileged children who have yet to face reality. If there ever is another Civil War in this country, it will be a quick one.

There are multiple polls out there that try to signify one thing or another. Polls that signify utter defeat for Republicans, not such big defeats for Republicans, and perhaps considerable gains for Republicans. Polls that show extreme levels of enthusiasm never before seen in American politics. And as is always the case, both parties wish to gain the young people’s vote. However, one reporter from NBC News discovered something that perhaps should not come as so much of a surprise: Millennials are not all that interested in voting.
Recently, an NBC News correspondent went to the University of California-Irvine campus in Orange County, an area known for being rather conservative, and asked some students there if they were going to vote this November. Of the roughly 20 students that were gathered by a bus stop, only one of them told the MSM correspondent that they would vote. The rest either did not suggest they would vote or flat out ignored the guy. He actually had to ask the question three times before one of the students said they would vote, so that tells you the level of enthusiasm in these kids.
After that rather embarrassing spectacle, the correspondent asked a couple of students what they cared about. Their answer should really not come as a surprise to anyone: “school.”
Who knew college students cared mostly about school?
Getting back on track, the correspondent asked the same kids what would be the topic that would ultimately garner their vote. Their answer was not very different. Their biggest concern was how much school cost, which is a problem we can all understand.
Might I offer a suggestion for lowering school tuition? How about colleges stop paying exorbitant amounts of money to people pretending to be a different race in order to meet a racial diversity quota only to have those people teach a class every once in a blue moon? *ahem* Elizabeth Warren *ahem*. Or how about no longer paying crazy people to stand on a stage and yell at white people for the suffering of minorities (that Democrats cause) and that there are as many genders as there are flavors of ice cream?
Either way, let’s get back to the surprised NBC News correspondent.
He mentioned to the two students who said their biggest concern was school that they had not mentioned the biggest issues that “people talk about on the news all the time – the Russia investigation, the Supreme Court.”
The students answered that they simply did not watch the news, which is why they do not concern themselves with that sort of stuff.
The correspondent moved on to two more students. He told them that it could fall to them whether or not Congress was in the hands of Republicans or Democrats and asked them if they were currently thinking about that. Their answer, at this point, should not come as a surprise. They are not very enthusiastic or concerned about voting or even who Congress goes to. The student who answered also mentioned that he assumes that “the people voting have probably some idea of who they are voting for.”
The correspondent then turned to the other student, a girl, and asked her if she was going to vote. She says: “I should,” and mentions that “we are the most unreliable people [for] Democrats…”
The correspondent finally conceded that they might not vote and asked them, in a disappointed tone, that the Democrats “can’t count on you guys necessarily.” The students answered with a relatively uncaring “no”.
Of course, this all comes as relative good news and bad news. The good news is that these kids aren’t being poisoned by what the media says. The bad news is that they are also not getting themselves informed of how diabolical the Democrat Party is and the horrendous behavior they have shown throughout the Kavanaugh confirmation process and even before that.
They actually kind of remind me of the Chinese millennials who were not interested in communism, in a way.
And all things considered, I am not so surprised that these kids are not all that interested in voting. Most people, believe it or not, are not all that political. This includes even millennials. But I will admit that I, myself, was about as surprised as the NBC News correspondent. Knowing what’s been going on in this country, the fact that millennials (at least these ones in the video) are not all that interested in voting is actually pretty surprising.
Of course, you also have to take into consideration that these are college kids who have other things in mind. Things like midterms (exams, that is), projects, part-time jobs, events, clubs, friends, relationships, etc., so it is understandable that maybe who wins the 2018 midterm elections might not be at the forefront of their minds.
Generally speaking, midterm elections are not as popular or considered to be as important as presidential elections. And even though both Republicans and Democrats make it a case to point out how important this next election is (for different reasons, obviously), there are still people who will not really care all that much and stay at home on November 6th.
Even I make the point that this midterm election is a lot more important than the ones in the past. In my honest opinion, the 2018 midterms are just as important as the 2016 presidential election. I consider this next election a turning point. Either we fall back to the socialism that ravaged the country during the Obama years, but on steroids, or we push back against the destructive Left and possibly send them over the edge of complete and total insanity.
Insanity that could lead to even more violence that makes the kind of violence we are witnessing now look like a tea party by comparison.
But I digress. From what I can gather with this funny NBC video, I take it that people are not quite as fired up to kick Trump out of office as the Left thought they were. With how they’ve been portraying Trump, they believe the vast majority of the country agrees with them. That Trump’s supporters regretted voting for him the minute he won and are ready to toss him on his behind. That all of America hates that Trump cheated to win and wants to rectify that.
That is so far from reality, the Left might as well be 2D cartoons.
That’s not to say deranged Leftists aren’t fired up to vote down-the-line Democrat this November, but that is to say that there is likely an equal or greater amount of Americans, not just conservatives but Independents and former Democrats too, who are fired up to punish these unruly children calling themselves a political party.
All I know is that this millennial right here is ready to vote down-the-line Republican and keep, if not grow, the GOP majority in Congress. Not necessarily because I believe these Republicans are great and care about what I think or are ready to pass MAGA agenda items, but because I know full-well what the alternative would be.
If I have to choose between a human being with flaws or literally Satan, I would choose the human.

After about a month (or at least what felt like a month) of smear campaign after smear campaign against Judge (now Justice) Brett Kavanaugh, the dangerous mob rule of the Left has been defeated by sanity and logic.
But just because Brett Kavanaugh is now a Supreme Court Justice does not mean that the Left will simply lay down in defeat. Much like the 2016 Presidential election, they will deem this confirmation illegitimate and have even warned that, should they retake the House, they will impeach Brett Kavanaugh and undermine President Trump, and subsequently, the American people who wanted him confirmed in the first place.
The behavior the Left displayed in the weeks running up to Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote was absolutely horrendous, shameful and even terrifying. But what is even more terrifying is the knowledge that this is only the beginning.
This whole thing started with Sen. Diane Feinstein releasing a letter that was sent to her describing a horrible act that was supposedly perpetrated by Kavanaugh. For a long while, that was all people were talking about. The supposed ire that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford went through roughly 30 years ago.
The biggest problem that the Left faced (but tried to ignore until it came back to bite them) is that Ford’s claims were uncorroborated. She presented no evidence to prove her claims and no witnesses to corroborate her claims. In fact, the witnesses she names either deny having been there or deny such a party even happening in the first place.
But instead of moving on to something substantial in their fight against Brett Kavanaugh, the Left chose to double down. They didn’t just ignore the fact that Ford’s claims were uncorroborated, they flat out denied that they even needed to be corroborated.
Multiple Leftists tried to take away Kavanaugh’s right to presumption of innocence. They painted him as a rapist even before the most ludicrous accusation, that of Swetnik’s, even came up. In their minds, Ford calling him a sexual assaulter made him one. They didn’t just ignore logic or sanity. They adamantly rejected both of them.
After Ford came out with her story and seeing how the media and the Democrats reacted, more women tried to come in and achieve something similar. The New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow reported a story of Brett Kavanaugh having exposed himself in front of a woman named Deborah Ramirez. That story was also uncorroborated.
But as if either of those uncorroborated stories weren’t enough, in came Michael Avenatti with his client, a woman named Julia Swetnik. While Ford did not try to go as far as to say Kavanaugh had raped her (though she said she thought he would have tried to) and Ramirez tried to fan the flames just a little bit with a story of sexual misconduct, not necessarily assault, Swetnik came in chucking a gallon of gas into the fire.
The problem was that, apart from the fact that her story was also uncorroborated, it was also largely incredible. As in hardly anyone with a functioning brain would believe it.
Who would believe a college-age girl would go to high school parties where there would be gang rapes and drugging of girls? Beyond that, who would believe a college-age girl would attend such parties 10 DIFFERENT TIMES?!
But did that actually insane story stop the Left from pushing it? Of course not, because these people are just as unhinged as that story was.
Multiple Democrats roped in Swetnik’s accusation along with Ford’s and Ramirez’s. Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI), who largely made a name for herself in this case against Kavanaugh, said: “We already have three credible reports of sexual misconduct by Judge Kavanaugh” when calling for an FBI investigation against the nominee.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said: “We now have three credible accusers of sexual assault.”
And Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA) issued a press release titled: “Senate Democrats: FBI Must Investigate All Three Credible Allegations of Sexual Assault Against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.”
They all deemed Swetnik’s ludicrous accusation to be just as credible as the other two. While I would consider Ford’s to be somewhat believable to an extent, and Ramirez to a lesser extent, Swetnik’s accusation is flat out unbelievable, let alone incredible. Whether you like Brett Kavanaugh or not, you would be hard-pressed to believe a girl would repeatedly go to parties where girls get drugged and raped by a line of boys.
Had it been once, then we could chuck it up to being in the wrong place at the wrong time and having survived something horrendous that one time. But 10? Not even fiction writers would find this believable.
And yet, the Left ran with it. They abandoned sanity and logic in favor of partisan politics. But alas, they failed.
The circus show that they created wound up coming back to bite them. And even Democrats and the MSM have been blaming Avenatti for making things as wild as they were (and they are right to some extent, but not without a share of the blame themselves for running with it in the first place).
They saw what happened in the Alabama special election and thought they could recreate that with Kavanaugh. The problem was that at least some of the accusations against Roy Moore were believable and credible. He DID date a 16-year-old girl (not that it is illegal in Alabama, for some reason). So some of the accusations were at least believable (I won’t call them credible because virtually nothing happened after Moore lost, which makes me think it was nothing more than a political hit-job).
But when it comes to all the accusations against Kavanaugh, the most believable one is Ford’s and even that is a bit of a stretch to say it’s believable. She could not remember the when or where of it and could not remember who drove her home. She remembered the incident in detail but anyone can do that, particularly if they have 30+ years to do it.
And the subsequent allegations became less and less believable until you get to Swetnik who was basically a nuclear bomb directed at Kavanaugh, but likely impacted the Left a lot more.
But the fact that the Left ran with all of them, despite them not being corroborated with evidence, and even going as far as to believe it was up to Kavanaugh to prove his innocence rather than Ford to prove his guilt tells me all I need to know about where we are headed as a nation against the Left.
Like wild dogs, they will bite and maul at anyone and anything. And I would not be surprised if they started to get violent.
The Kavanaugh confirmation process is proof that the Left is ready to abandon any and all sense of morality, logic and sanity. I’ve said before that Trump’s election did not create the Left’s insane nature, but rather exposed it. The confirmation process for Kavanaugh exposed something else: the Left is not ashamed of what they are.
They wanted to destroy Kavanaugh and went to any length they deemed necessary. They slandered him and dragged his name through the mud. They targeted him and his family and have tried to utterly destroy his name. A writer for Stephen Colbert even tweeted on the day of Kavanaugh’s confirmation: “Whatever happens, I’m just glad we ruined Brett Kavanaugh’s life.”
That tells you everything you need to know, doesn’t it? It wasn’t about making sure a woman was heard. It wasn’t about defending victims of sexual assault. It wasn’t about standing up to a possible sexual assaulter. It was about ruining a man who stands in the Left’s way. They wanted to do to Kavanaugh what they want to do to Trump. Only, they thought they could destroy Kavanaugh if they went twice as hard against him as they did against Trump.
Yesterday, it was Brett Kavanaugh. Who will it be today? Or tomorrow? Or Novemver 6th, 2018? Or further down the road?
I recently had a conversation with someone regarding this whole issue. They made the point that this was a war against men that the Left is waging. I made the point that it was a war against conservatives that the Left is waging. Upon further analysis and thought, I could say that it’s really both.
The Left hates this thing called the “patriarchy”. And within this patriarchy, there exist men of all kinds, even Leftist men. Just the title of a man is enough to be considered part of this patriarchy regardless of your beliefs.
Leftist men like Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, George Takei, Bill Cosby, Al Franken and others have been destroyed by the #MeToo movement. As well they should have. What they did was horrendous, particularly Weinstein.
As far as I can tell, the #MeToo movement has destroyed far more Leftist men than conservatives.
It depicts a war against men. Yes, most, if not all of them are sexual assaulters, so there definitely has to be some punishment against them. But the Left has hijacked this movement and aimed its sights at conservatives who did not do anything.
Anyone who is a conservative is considered a sexual assault apologist at best and a sexual assaulter and rapist at worst. The Women’s March, another Leftist organization, even went as far as to call Senator Susan Collins a “Rape Apologist” for having voted in favor of Kavanaugh.
So this war the Left is waging, I would say, is both against men in general and conservatives (or anyone who stands in their way, since I would not call Collins a “conservative” even after this).
This is where the Left is going. It’s somewhere that, if you have any sense for right and wrong, or any sanity within you, you cannot follow. What they want is a society where they are in control, anyone who opposes them is punished and everyone else submits to them out of fear.
A society where rule of law does not exist, only rule of mob. A society where good, innocent men are disparaged and destroyed just because they are nominated by a guy the Left does not like, or even just because they are men and that’s good enough to destroy them. Frankly, aside from key details, I would not be surprised if they had been as savage and barbaric towards Amy Coney Barrett (who I look forward to replacing RBG). She also would have stood in their way and they would have gone to any lengths they felt were needed to destroy her.
Doubtful it would’ve been with sexual assault allegations given she’s a woman, but they would have done something.
And all things considered, I am glad Brett Kavanaugh was nominated by Trump over Barrett. Not because I prefer him over her. In fact, I think she’s even more conservative than Kavanaugh and was my favorite candidate out of the list that Trump released. But I am glad Kavanaugh was chosen because this process further exposed the Left for what they are: totally and unequivocally unhinged and deranged.
I’d rather know the enemy I am facing, even if it terrifies me, than be oblivious to my enemy and live in blissful ignorance that would ultimately kill me.
I’m glad we all got to see the Left for the crap that they are. This process has affirmed my belief in voting Republican. Not necessarily because I might like the Republican candidate, but because I absolutely cannot allow a Democrat to win. Not anymore. And while Manchin voted in favor of Kavanaugh, he only did it because he thought it’d help him in November. I thank him for voting the way he did, but will not give him more credit than what is due.
As for the rest of the Democrat Party, I do not see a single one that I would consider sane in any way. At best, maybe Nancy Pelosi, but if I consider her to be the least deranged out of the bunch, that tells me a lot about the Democrat Party.
The good news is that God is always in control and that the Left’s recent behavior will likely cost them in the midterms. Only insane people support insane people. And I do not think there are that many of them to vote Democrat. With the WalkAway movement, which likely gained more traction after this, I doubt sane people will vote Democrat.
But I won’t count my eggs before they hatch. We are still a month away from the midterms and a lot can happen in that time span. But it would take a miracle for the Left to put out the dumpster fire they have created for themselves. And knowing them, they will not only ignore the fact that they are a dumpster fire, but will flat out reject that there is any other alternative than being a dumpster fire.

If this title seems familiar to you, I would not be very surprised. A month ago, almost to the date, I wrote an article about unemployment claims standing at a 50-year-low. However, those numbers are a tad different from these numbers.
In that previous article, I covered a story by The Hill, where they said: “Initial claims for state unemployment benefits fell to a seasonally adjusted 203,000 for the week… the lowest since December 1969… the four-week moving average… was 209,500… the lowest level for this average since Dec. 6, 1969 when it was 204,500.”
But the unemployment rate is a different story. A month ago, it stood at 3.9%. In the latest jobs report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, “the unemployment rate declined to 3.7 percent in September, and total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 134,000…”
According to the BLS: “the number of unemployed persons decreased by 270,000 to 6.0 million. Over the year, the unemployment rate and the number of unemployed persons declined by 0.5 percentage points and 795,000, respectively.”
The report also mentions that adult women’s unemployment rate stands at 3.3%, as well as White unemployment. “The jobless rates for adult men (3.4 percent), teenagers (12.8 percent), Blacks (6.0 percent), Asians (3.5 percent), and Hispanics (4.5 percent) showed little to no change over the month.”
The last time I saw the black unemployment rate, it stood around 5.9%, so a little bit of an increase, unfortunately, but nothing severe. Hispanic unemployment rate is sitting at the same record low that it was last month.
Now, we should also mention the fact that we only added 134,000 jobs last month, which is lower than usual and lower than was even expected.
According to the BLS: “Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 134,000 in September, compared with an average gain of 201,000 over the prior 12 months.”
However, they explain that Hurricane Florence hitting some of the East coast states likely impacted the jobs report to some extent. I do not know the full details of how much damage the hurricane caused and how many jobs were negatively affected by the hurricane in this report, but it stands to reason that the hurricane would do at least some damage.
Regardless of this, the overall news is pretty fantastic. Sitting at a 50-year-low unemployment rate is pretty significant and a huge achievement for this administration. It really should not be understated how big an achievement this is.
The last time we had an unemployment rate this low:
So knowing all of this, this just tells you how impressive of an achievement this is.
We have record-low unemployment rates across the board and we are truly Making America Great Again.
When the Democrats say they “have to stop Trump”, is this what they mean? They want to stop the economy booming? They want to set us back in trade policy with other nations? They want to set us back in foreign policy altogether? They want to allow ISIS, or Muslim extremists in general, to rebuild their strength and once again pose a threat to Western Civilization?
I know these are all rhetorical questions, but the answer honestly is yes. That’s precisely what they want to do. They hate the fact that the economy is doing so well under Trump. They hate the fact that he’s successfully destroyed NAFTA and negotiated a new, better deal with Mexico and Canada. They hate the fact that his “bullying” tactics have worked with North Korea so far, and even try to say that such tactics won’t work on Iran. They hate the fact that terrorism is now largely a threat to nations that have elected socialist governments to represent them, such as Great Britain, France, etc., while largely leaving the U.S. alone.
We never had numbers even close to this with Obama. Sure, they tried to say the numbers were low, but largely because a lot of people simply stopped looking for work in the first place. These numbers are real, as reflected by the fact that wages are going up and thousands of businesses have given their employees some extra cash in their pockets, with Walmart having increased their minimum wage to $15 without being pushed to doing this and risking layoffs.
The economy is truly booming, which is why the MSM doesn’t cover it unless the Dow Jones goes down by a lot in a single day (and when it goes back up by a lot the next, they go back to not covering the economy very much).
And no Democrat, especially Obama, is to thank for this. It’s not their tax cuts that are helping – it’s the GOP’s. They adamantly voted against those tax cuts, if you’ll remember.
Here’s hoping that there is a Red Wave this November, Congress gets flooded with more and more Republicans and we can continue seeing these great numbers all the way to 2020, when Trump goes against Cory “not so Smarticus” Booker, Kamala “illegals are more important than you” Harris, Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren or Hillary “how am I still not in jail, Jeff?” Clinton.

Last Friday, despite having promised to vote in favor of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to make him a Supreme Court Justice, Sen. Jeff “Snow” Flake (R-AZ) asked that a one-week FBI investigation on the allegations made against Brett Kavanaugh be made before they hold the vote they were originally going to hold the week prior to the last.
Can’t say I’m surprised by Flake’s decision to Flake out of the vote, having talked with Democrats shortly before making this request. While Lindsey Graham seems to have turned over a new leaf (I operate under the Reagan motto of “trust, but verify” with him), Jeff Flake is being his same spineless self.
Let me tell you why an FBI investigation is entirely irrelevant in this case, particularly after Dr. Ford’s hearing.
First and foremost, it’s simply a delay tactic. Have you ever heard of an FBI investigation starting, investigating and wrapping something up in a week? I never have. The FBI investigating Dr. Ford’s allegations would definitely take longer than a week. After a week of investigating, they wouldn’t find anything substantial, so they would likely need more time to investigate, thus further delaying the vote.
It’s also a delay tactic in that the Left can definitely find another woman who wishes to be a hero to the Left and accuse Kavanaugh of something horrific. And if/when they do, then obviously, they would need the FBI to look into that, further delaying the vote.
Second, it’s not within the FBI’s jurisdiction to investigate this sort of thing. They investigate federal crimes, not local ones. So the only law enforcement agency that can investigate this is the police department of the area the party took place.
Third, the FBI has already extensively vetted Kavanaugh and not one of these stories ever came up. By the looks of things, every allegation has people there to witness and corroborate the occurrence. No one ever mentioned anything like this and I would seriously doubt everyone Kavanaugh went to school with and everyone he knew was a staunch conservative who would support him or even go as far as to lie to the FBI to protect him if they saw him do what he’s accused of.
Fourth and finally, the FBI would get no farther than the Senate Judiciary Committee has in investigating this matter. Dr. Ford does not remember the time or the place of the alleged groping. Every witness Dr. Ford brought up has either denied such party even happening or being there to witness the alleged sexual assault. Not to mention this happened well over 30 years ago, so any search would likely come up fruitless.
If you go to the FBI with the story that you were sexually assaulted, but offer no evidence at all, offer no witness that can corroborate your story and cannot offer even the basic information of the where and when of the assault, the investigation ends before it even began. There’s just not enough there to begin an investigation, let alone conduct one and complete one.
For anyone to request or demand an FBI investigation into the matter is indicative of the kind of mentality they have: delay this vote until Kavanaugh is destroyed or pulls out. No rational and logical person would believe the FBI could do much here, let alone demand they do something.
Flake’s request that the FBI investigate this matter is not sane, it’s not justice for Dr. Ford or any of the accusers. It’s his final betrayal to the United States as an outgoing Senator, given his approval numbers are so low he could not even hope to run in his own state. Ironically, it’s this kind of crap that plunged his numbers in the first place.
But my overall point is that it was always irrelevant for the FBI to investigate this, but particularly so after Thursday’s testimony from Dr. Ford. She offered no more evidence than she did in her letter to Feinstein or in the days and weeks running up to the vote. In the meantime, more and more women stepped forth to accuse him of even more unbelievable and uncorroborated crap, all of which the Left and now Flake are demanding be investigated by the FBI.
Again, with what little information Dr. Ford and the other accusers (one of which is anonymous) have given, an investigation cannot actually be made, especially for Dr. Ford’s accusation, which is at the center of this whole thing.
It especially cannot be made in the span of a single week. That’s ludicrous. The FBI and Special Counsel have spent roughly a year and a half and longer investigating Trump-Russia collusion and have found nothing substantial. And that’s still ongoing, though falling apart as it may be.
So the FBI absolutely cannot investigate anything in a single week even with more information than what they would be given. Which means this investigation is not made to find out the truth. Ford’s hearing on Thursday supposedly was about finding out the truth and nothing was learned that was not already known.
This investigation is not meant to find out the truth but to delay the vote as much as they can. I would be naïve to believe that another delay would not be called. And then another. And then another.
But even with all of this b.s. going on, I will still vote Republican in November. Not because I appreciate what the establishment Republicans are doing. I abhor it. But rather because I do not want to be in this position or in a worse position after November.
What I mean by that is that we need to flood the Senate with Republicans. Right now, we depend too much on too few people who can change their mind on a whim and side with the Left. With more Republicans in the Senate (and the House, but that’s another story), we would likely have more dependable people to vote for things that are favorable to the country and against things that are not favorable to us.
Yes, there would still be establishment people like Grassley, Collins, Murkowski, etc., but there would be more conservatives in the mix as well.
Not to mention that there’s no way I would allow the alternative to take over the country. The alternative, of course, being Democrats who will likely fully and openly embrace socialism to the level of Nazism and punish all of us who dared defy the entitled brats in the Establishment.
I’m already energized to vote Republican, but if the GOP Establishment fails to confirm Kavanaugh, I will be voting with a vengeance. But not in favor of Democrats, that’d be actual insanity. Rather, voting for Republicans who will not betray the people they are representing.
We need to drain the swamp at all levels of the government. Pronto.
