Not to be the turd in the punchbowl, but…

N

Republicans actually had a pretty good night last night with the Senate, the Georgia Governor’s race, the two seats in Florida, the Ohio Governor’s race, etc. In fact, Democrats could not flip a single seat in the House that Trump carried by 55% or more. The truth is, Donald Trump may be abnormal in his behaviors as a politician, but politically he is not that abnormal. If anything...

The Only Consistent Data Point As Election Day Arrives

T

I think the Democrats will probably take back the House with 30 to 40 pick ups. I think the GOP will hold the Senate and may pick up a couple of seats. I think Democrats will pick up just over a half dozen gubernatorial seats. But I think the GOP will hold Georgia, even though it will be close. There is only one consistent data point in this volatile midterm election season. No one really knows...

Regarding the “Invasion” Caravan

R

This is where we could use a media that everyone trusts, but over the past year the media has squandered any and all remaining goodwill with the American public, particularly with conservatives, by lying, pushing half-truths, and failing to report all the facts in various situations because so many members of the media have joined the so-called resistance. I do not believe and note the President...

Facts About the “Pending Voters” in Georgia

F

The Associated Press ran a story on October 9 about “pending voters” claiming that 53,000 voters have been placed on a “pending voter” file in Georgia because of a law called “exact match.” That law requires voters to exactly match their drivers license on their voter registration information. The Associated Press interviewed one such voter on the pending voter...

No, Brian Kemp is Not Stealing the Election By Cancelling Voter Registrations

N

The left is playing up a political activist’s story that Brian Kemp, Georgia’s Secretary of State and the Republican gubernatorial nominee, is cancelling voter registrations in order to “steal” the election in Georgia. It is simply not true. In fact, federal law requires that states purge their voter rolls of voters who have moved or died. Because no one ever calls the...

You Can’t Fight That Way

Y

There is a movement afoot on the right to embrace tactics the left embraces in public, namely harassing politicians, chasing them out of restaurants, and otherwise engaging in mob like tactics. But there is a problem with this and I think conservatives, particularly faith based conservatives, need to avoid these tactics. I think the embrace of movements on the right that behave like Antifa and...

Democrats Are Losing Because They Believed Their Own Press

D

“We’ve got to be more ruthless,” more than one Democrat strategist has proclaimed since Saturday’s vote to put Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court. They’ve just gone through three weeks of a targeted, organized character assassination of a Supreme Court nominee and think they need to be more ruthless. Ponder that for a minute. But the real issue here is that the...

Senate Republicans Must Confirm Brett Kavanaugh Now

S

Christine Blasey Ford made for a strong witness before the United States Senate. She came across as compelling and sympathetic. It seems clear something happened to her at some point in her life. But Rachel Mitchell performed masterfully yesterday exposing the action against Brett Kavanaugh as a leftwing character assassination. Questioning Ford, Mitchell established that Ford’s legal team:...

Why I Do Not Believe the Accusers

W

Several people I very much respect have asked me for an explanation of why I am willing to assert the accusations against Brett Kavanaugh are false instead of keeping an open mind. Given my respect for those people, I will lay out my thinking and your mileage may vary. First, let me set three parameters specifically with regard to Christine Blasey Ford. I do not dispute that she could have been...

Maybe the Hardy Boys or Sherlock Holmes Can Investigate the Kavanaugh Accusation

M

Just the other day, Professor Ford’s lawyer said on television that Ford looked forward to being able to share what happened to her. Now they are demanding the FBI investigate a purported sexual assault that is outside the jurisdiction of the FBI instead of testifying before the Senate. Perhaps the Hardy Boys or Sherlock Holmes could investigation as fictional detectives might do a better...
