2020 Preview: Is Texas A Battlground State For Democrats?

After years of warnings to conservatives, it appears Texas is truly on the verge of becoming a political battleground state. 

How ironic that the key to leftist totalitarianism in America would be attained via the home of the Alamo.

Via The New York Times:

Texas is on the doorstep of emerging as a battleground state, and any number of Democrats might stand a chance to compete there in 2020 for the presidency or the Senate.

…There’s clearly additional upside for Democrats if they could pair their recent gains among white voters with improvement among Hispanic voters (through some combination of persuasion, higher turnout among registrants and newly registered voters).

Can Democrats really turn out Hispanic voters in huge numbers in Texas? There are real barriers, and you wouldn’t expect Hispanic Democrats to turn out in particularly high numbers given their low turnout elsewhere in the country. It is far-fetched to suggest Hispanic mobilization will fundamentally transform the electorate and turn Texas into a blueish state anytime soon.

But a more modest increase in turnout or support among Hispanic voters is fairly likely if Texas sees the campaign dollars and attention that come with a contested state in a presidential year. When Mr. Obama contested Virginia, North Carolina and Colorado in 2008, the turnout there increased by an average of 13 percent to 23 percent over 2004 levels, which included a mix of higher turnout among registrants and thousands of newly registered voters. Given the extraordinary turnout in the 2018 midterm election nationwide, it is plausible that turnout will be up substantially in Texas regardless of whether the state is a battleground.

Put it together, and Texas is on the cusp of being a true (if Republican-tilting) battleground state. It might not be immediately and vigorously contested, as Arizona or North Carolina will most likely be, given the greater expense of campaigning in Texas and the fact that it starts out to the right of those states. But if Democrats chose to contest it seriously in 2020, there wouldn’t be anything crazy about that.

What the above NYT article outlines is the long-term approach the globalists have been initiating in Texas. Increase illegal immigration along with out-of-state immigration into Texas in order to increase the overall numbers of Democrat voters. Combine that with the well-practiced urban vote counting shenanigans that have long been a hallmark of the Democrat get-out-the-vote machine and you have the makings of a significant political shift in the Lone Star state. Each year tens of thousands more people move to Texas to escape the high tax liberal policies of places like California and New York only to then turn around and vote for the very same high tax liberal policies they escaped from. The state capital of Austin is now dominated by such left-leaning big government advocates who want more illegals voting, more government regulation, and more centralized authority and they are working very hard to bring that vision to all of Texas.

And you know what? They’re succeeding.

If anyone thinks Texas is safe from a far left electoral takeover you’re sadly engaged in a political version of the bird box. Just because you choose not to see reality doesn’t mean it’s not out there all around you. 

Remember the Alamo.

REPORT: America On Verge Of Another Civil War?

It’s been a long time since America has been so divided politically, culturally, and spiritually. Two political commentators representing opposing sides found one thing they can both agree on—the country is coming very close to another civil war. As improbable as that still seems to most, more and more are willing to concede things are getting increasingly intense as people watch and wait to see what Washington D.C. tries to do next.

In America, talk turns to something unspoken for 150 years: Civil war

…First came former U.S. attorney Joseph diGenova, a Fox News regular and ally of President Trump. “We are in a civil war,” he said. “The suggestion that there’s ever going to be civil discourse in this country for the foreseeable future is over. . . . It’s going to be total war.”

The next day, Nicolle Wallace, a former Republican operative turned MSNBC commentator and Trump critic, played a clip of diGenova’s commentary on her show and agreed with him – although she placed the blame squarely on the president.

Trump, she said, “greenlit a war in this country around race. And if you think about the most dangerous thing he’s done, that might be it.”

With the report by special counsel Robert Mueller reportedly nearly complete, impeachment talk in the air and the 2020 presidential election ramping up, fears that once existed only in fiction or the fevered dreams of conspiracy theorists have become a regular part of the political debate. These days, there’s talk of violence, mayhem and, increasingly, civil war.

A tumultuous couple of weeks in American politics seem to have raised the rhetorical flourishes to a new level and also brought a troubling question to the surface: At what point does all the alarmist talk of civil war actually increase the prospect of violence, riots or domestic terrorism?

Speaking to conservative pundit Laura Ingraham, diGenova summed up his best advice to friends: “I vote, and I buy guns. And that’s what you should do.”

…The concerns about a civil war, though, extend beyond the pundit class to a sizable segment of the population. An October 2017 poll from the company that makes the game Cards Against Humanity found that 31 percent of Americans believed a civil war was “likely” in the next decade.

More than 40 percent of Democrats described such a conflict as “likely,” compared with about 25 percent of Republicans. The company partnered with Survey Sampling International to conduct the nationally representative poll.

Some historians have sounded a similar alarm. “How, when, and why has the United States now arrived at the brink of a veritable civil war?” Victor Davis Hanson, a historian with Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, asked last summer in an essay in National Review. Hanson prophesied that the United States “was nearing a point comparable to 1860,” about a year before the first shots were fired on Fort Sumter, South Carolina.

Around the same time Hanson was writing, Robert Reich, a former (Clinton)secretary of labor who is now a professor at the University of California at Berkeley, imagined his own new American civil war, in which demands for Trump’s impeachment lead to calls from Fox News commentators for “every honest patriot to take to the streets.”

“The way Mr. Trump and his defenders are behaving, it’s not absurd to imagine serious social unrest,” Reich wrote in the Baltimore Sun. “That’s how low he’s taken us.”

(And yet it must be noted that it’s Democrats who have been calling for the impeachment of President Trump since he won the election in 2016 because they were the ones who refused to accept the election’s outcome, a fact Mr. Reich neglects to admit to. And it’s more Democrats, not Republicans, who are now calling for a civil war in America because to date they’ve been unable to force Trump from office.)

FAKE SCANDAL ALERT…Former Trump Campaign Staffer Alleges He Kissed Her Without Consent…

There will be a LOT of these kinds of stories ramping up throughout 2019 so hold on tight Trump supporters. The Left Wing Media is more determined than ever to see President Trump defeated in 2020 – at any cost.

Via Fox News:

An Alabama woman who worked on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign claimed in a Monday lawsuit that Trump kissed her “without her consent” in front of multiple people during a political event in Florida in 2016 – an accusation the White House is denying.

The woman, Alva Johnson, filed suit Monday against Trump and his presidential campaign in federal court in Tampa. The lawsuit said Johnson served as the campaign’s director of outreach and coalitions for the state of Alabama, before working to help Trump in Florida during the general election.

“To Defendant Trump, however, Ms. Johnson was nothing more than a sexual object he felt entitled to dominate and humiliate,” the lawsuit states. “Like he has done with so many other women, Defendant Trump violated norms of decency and privacy by kissing Ms. Johnson on the lips without her consent in the middle of a Florida work event and in front of numerous other Campaign officials.”

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, in a statement to Fox News, called the allegation “absurd on its face.”

“This never happened and is directly contradicted by multiple highly credible eye witness accounts,” Sanders said.

Johnson said in an interview with the Washington Post that Trump leaned in to kiss her as he got out of an RV at an Aug. 24, 2016 rally in Tampa. She said she turned her head, and the kiss landed on the side of her mouth. The lawsuit claims then-Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi was a potential witness.

“I immediately felt violated because I wasn’t expecting it or wanting it,” Johnson told the paper. “I can still see his lips coming straight for my face.”

During the campaign, Trump denied allegations of past sexual misconduct, including from former “Apprentice” contestant Summer Zervos, who claimed Trump inappropriately kissed and groped her in 2007. This is the first accusation from someone during the campaign.

The suit also accuses the Trump campaign of paying her less than “similarly situated” male employees and said she is bringing the case as a “collective action” on behalf of female campaign employees “who suffered unlawful pay discrimination.” Trump campaign spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany told the Washington Post the claim about pay discrimination was “off-base and unfounded.”

Johnson is asking for unspecified monetary damages. It wasn’t immediately clear why she waited until now to file suit.

Congressman Matt Gaetz: Dems Using Florida Recounts as Test to See How They Can ‘Steal’ 2020 From Trump

Congressman Gaetz knows well the typical Florida election shenanigans that so often come out of Broward county. What was and is taking place before, during, and after, the 2018 Midterms is beyond anything he has witnessed before and he’s doing his best to warn Americans what that really means for 2020 and beyond.

Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is alleging that Democrats in Florida are “stress testing the integrity” of the election system in an effort to build “a roadmap on how to steal” the 2020 race from President Donald Trump.

In a SiriusXM interview on Breitbart News Daily, Gaetz told Breitbart editor-in-chief Alex Marlow, “If the Democrats are able to learn now what techniques work and don’t work, [which] transparency laws are going to be followed and which ones aren’t, then it gives them a roadmap on how to steal the election from Donald Trump in 2020.”

Gaetz added: “The resistance movement has changed from yelling at town halls and yelling in restaurants to now, potentially, trying to steal elections that they can’t win at the ballot box.”

The Florida congressman, who won reelection in his district earlier this month by more than 30 percent, said that the most concerning element in all of this has been that since election day, more than 80,000 ballots “have just been like spoken into existence.”

“They weren’t acknowledged to even exist on election night, and then lo and behold, the Democrats needed more votes to close the gaps,” he said, “and more ballots continued to be found.”

Rush Limbaugh Explains In Very Clear Detail Why America Needs To Secure Its Border And Its Elections

Voter fraud is real, it is happening, and by allowing it to continue, it is violating the sanctity of the “one citizen one vote” rule that has long kept this nation intact. As stories of vote count irregularities multiply at levels never before seen, more and more rightly fear 2018 was merely a warmup for even more rampant voter theft come 2020. 

Even Texas is on the brink as tens of thousands of illegals pour into that state’s southern border every month as local Democrat party machines then work to ensure they are able to vote. Texas nearly went blue in 2018. Democrats are more determined now than ever to do whatever it takes to make that happen in 2020 and if they do, a Republican will never win another national election in this country again. Texas has long been the electoral guardian at the gate. That gate is now under attack like never before and on the brink of cracking open. God help us if it does. Russia was nowhere close to ‘stealing’ any U.S. election. The far greater threat has always been illegal vote rigging.


 

REPORT: Hey, Republicans, If You Want To Win Elections In 2020 You Better Embrace Trump Now

The results of 2018 made it clear that if Republicans want to win elections they need to make sure to do at least one thing right—support/embrace President Trump and his America First Agenda.

Via The Daily Caller:

It is well-documented that both political parties in Congress have figured out how to use the levers of power — to stay in power. Congressional leaders, especially those in the majority, use their positions to raise millions of dollars in campaign contributions. Given that money usually equates to campaign success for the majority, one must work pretty hard to lose control of the House of Representatives. But it can be done, as Democrats demonstrated in 1994, Republicans in 2006, Democrats in 2010, and Republicans again in 2018.

As a political scientist and former congressman, I understand that it’s difficult to know exactly why voters reject any candidate. However, flipping the House is pretty simple to explain. In fact, both Speakers Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) offered the same answer: hyper-localize your race — that is, ignore national issues and focus like a laser on local issues. Unfortunately for Republicans, the advice only works Democrats.

Don’t agree with me? Ask Senators-elect Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), Mike Braun (R-Ind.), Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), and Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.). President Trump and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) successfully nationalized multiple Senate races, with the help provided by radical leftist opposition to Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Senate (and a few House) candidates who joined in the nationalization effort were rewarded and won.

Back to the House. The speaker and his affiliated PACs spent months running away from national issues. As a result, the one big achievement of the Ryan speakership — historic tax reform — was ignored by most voters, and the ancillary strong economy didn’t translate into strong support for House Republicans. Instead, the man who most successfully seized credit for a booming economy was the same man that establishment Republicans and consultants counseled candidates to avoid: President Donald Trump. (Note: this was the very same strategy implemented by House Republicans back in 2016, and despite their very best efforts to shun Trump, voters rewarded them anyway with his massive coattails. Trust me: I was in on these very discussions.)

With this Republican unwillingness to team up with Trump and his economy, voters struggled to recall anything positive delivered by the House majority. All they could remember were failed promises. For instance, after eight years of campaign pledges, congressional Republicans kept ObamaCare — despite all of its many failures. And instead of balancing the budget, Republicans passed the biggest budget in history. With no national vision by Republican leaders, combined with the dramatic failures to deliver and no Democrats to blame, no amount of hyper-localizing their races by talking about opioids, open spaces, or over-regulation could save dozens of Republican candidates.

However, for Democrats, hyper-localizing is political heaven. If you look back at the two recent times Democrats were kicked out of the House majority, it was after they openly admitted their grandiose visions for big government — first with Clinton and then with Obama. In both 1994 and 2010, voters rose up and said enough is enough. In other years, Democrats slowly and methodically plodded along their progressive path without riling up the too much opposition, and they were rewarded with seemingly permanent majorities. But when you nationalize healthcare or pass a trillion-dollar stimulus, that simply reveals too much of the Democrat agenda for a lot of voters.

So, nationalizing is good for Republicans, but it’s bad for Democrats. Hyper-localizing is good for Democrats, but it’s horrible for Republicans. Where does this leave House Republicans for the next two years?

First, 2018 isn’t over yet. There are ample lame-duck opportunities for Republicans to begin reestablishing trust with their voters by making a down payment on Trump’s wall, supporting Trump’s executive rollback of Obamacare, cutting government spending, and approving dozens of Trump appointees. They even have a chance to tackle entitlement spending before Paul Ryan retires, by including food stamp work requirements in the Farm Bill.

Second, whether lame-duck Republicans keep their word or not, the incoming House minority has one path back to the majority: Defend President Trump, the conservative agenda, and the strong economy from the socialist wing of the Democratic Party. There will be Democratic investigation after investigation, congressional letters infinitum, and subpoenas galore. But by standing with the president, his appointees, and his voter base, House Republicans will help nationalize the election and likely be rewarded with a majority in 2021. A House Democrat majority and a loud socialist Senate minority can play havoc with Republicans for two years, but President Trump has his own pen and phone.

Last, a note of warning to Washington, D.C. Republicans and the center-right movement: Beware of Google and the social media giants of YouTube, Facebook, Twitter. They have the means, motive, and opportunity to ensure this nationalization strategy fails. As the most powerful sector of the economy, these corporate giants have the means to influence elections — certainly more than a few Russian bots! Leaked videos reveal massive anti-Trump, pro-socialism groupthink, proving they have the motive. And with their nearly complete monopoly of the most impactful medium in the modern world, no one can argue that they don’t have the opportunity.

The next two years could help shape the future of the country — and, indeed, the world — for years to come. Republicans can’t afford to ignore the lessons of 2018.

President Trump amassed an impressive list of 2018 Midterm victories for those candidates he supported. He also focused on the Senate more than the House. The results appear to compliment that fact and the reality that the ‘Trump effect’ is real and for Republicans greatly improves a candidate’s chances of winning.
