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. 


 

Same Media That Pushed “Russia Hacked 2016 Election” Hoax Now Claims “No Evidence” Of Possible 2018 Election Fraud

America’s Establishment Media is shameless to the point of outright stupidity. (And then, of course, becomes uber-defensive when figures like President Trump rightfully call them out) Election shenanigans in Florida, led by a Broward County Elections official who has a long history of abuses, where ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND NEW VOTES were suddenly just discovered and counted today, to the very odd vote counting taking place in and around what is historically right-leaning Arizona (but now in 2018 is somehow poised to elect a radical anti-war/pro-Taliban activist to the Senate) there is multiple points of proof that something may be amiss. And yet, here comes the Establishment Media, which pushed a false “Russia hacked our elections” narrative for more than a year after the 2016  Election, saying there is nothing to see regarding Democrat-led Election Day shenanigans in 2018 even after a judge smacked the hands of Broward County Election officials for failing to follow state election laws. 

All of which makes it now undeniably clear that there is no difference between the Establishment Media and the Democrat Party – they are one and the same and working together to push a false version of America until it becomes reality regardless of the law or the sanctity of our elections.


 

Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff Promises Russia Investigations x1000 If Dems Take The House

Despite multiple Congressional investigations already, and the still ongoing Mueller-led investigation into allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 Election which is costing tens of millions of taxpayer dollars with nothing significant to show for it, Democrat Adam Schiff is urging voters to give Democrats the House so that yet more anti-Trump investigations can be launched on the taxpayer dime.

Rep. Schiff: If Democrats Flip House, Renewing Probe on Russia’s Election Meddling Will Be Top Priority

Schiff, ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, said he was feeling optimistic about Democrats’ chances of netting the 23 seats they need to take back control of the House. If they succeed, Schiff is widely expected to take over as chair of the committee tasked with investigating Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election.

“We’re not taking anything for granted,” Schiff said, but laid out his priorities as the committee’s chair if control of the House flips. Reviving the investigation into Russia’s election meddling is at the top of the list, Schiff said, and also probing whether Russia has financial leverage over President Trump through his business interests.

“The president has sought to keep that off limits, but if that’s the leverage Russians pose that’s a real threat to our country,” Schiff told The Times.

—————–

Logic indicates that after nearly two years of multi-million dollar investigations that Congress, Mueller, and/or the anti-Trump media powers would have come up with something substantive.

They haven’t.

So, what does Congressman Schiff offer to an America benefitting from the Trump economic miracle happening now?

To attack that miracle in favor of highly partisan, abusive, and ultimately destructive, politics.


 

Sure Hope THIS Isn’t Why Nancy Pelosi Is So Confident She’ll Be House Speaker Again…

Be very careful with these electronic voting booths. Make sure the vote you intended is the vote that’s recorded as this recent video makes clear:

Did You Know 140 Democrats In Congress Voted In Favor Of Allowing Foreigners To Tamper With U.S. Elections?

It’s true. Democrats have turned their backs on the American people in favor of non-citizens having the power to alter our elections. And as more and more Americans walk away from the Democrat Party Democrats are hoping to fill that vacuum with non-citizen support. Remember, these are the same people who pushed the fake Trump/Russia collusion hoax under the guise of ‘protecting our democracy.’ How does allowing illegals to vote protect democracy? The answer is clear. It doesn’t. And THAT is the Democrat platform in 2018.
