BREAKING: Kevin McCarthy Beats Jim Jordan for House Leadership

Congressman Kevin McCarthy easily defeated a challenge from Congressman Jim Jordan for the position of House Minority Leader this afternoon. Jordan will likely be the ranking minority leader on the House Judiciary Committee, pitting him against Democrats intent on unleashing a mass of anti-Trump investigations.

The president’s relationship with McCarthy has been overwhelmingly positive over the course of the first two years of the Trump administration. It was McCarthy who often had to act as peacemaker between the president and outgoing House Speaker, Paul Ryan who remained an anti-Trumper—behind closed doors. It was also McCarthy who led the charge for passage of the Trump tax cuts, work which the president is said to have been very impressed by.

President Trump is also on very good terms with Congressman Jordan who has been a stalwart supporter of the president’s since 2016. If President Trump has called on both men to make a quick peace and get ready for what will likely be a contentious ongoing battle with the new Democrat House majority, it is likely that is exactly what will happen.


 

How John McCain’s No Vote To Repeal & Replace Obamacare Helped Dems Win House In 2018

For years Republicans (including John McCain) raised a lot of cash on their promise to get rid of Obamacare. Then, when Donald Trump shocked the political world and won the White House, they were in a position to actually keep that promise to voters. Instead, then-Senator McCain (along with Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski) voted no on repeal and yes on keeping Obamacare fully intact. One outgoing member of Congress now thinks that is when Republicans’ hopes for keeping the House in 2018 were doomed to fail and that McCain’s no vote had nothing to do with doing what was right for Arizona voters but rather was meant to feed McCain’s desire to rebuke President Trump.

Via Politico:

An outgoing Republican lawmaker on Sunday blamed former Sen. John McCain for the GOP’s loss of the House majority in last week’s elections, writing in The Wall Street Journal that it was McCain’s decisive vote against legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare that led to a wave of Democratic midterm victories.

Jason Lewis, a Minnesota congressman who was unseated last Tuesday by Democrat Angie Craig, claimed in his op-ed that McCain’s thumbs-down vote against a so-called skinny repeal of the Affordable Care Act “prompted a ‘green wave’ of liberal special-interest money” that he said allowed Democrats to hammer Republicans on the issue of pre-existing conditions.

Lewis wrote in his op-ed that the failed Senate vote allowed Democrats to campaign against Republicans with the claim that the GOP wanted to remove protections for those with pre-existing conditions, a keystone of many Democratic campaigns leading up to the midterms.

The freshman congressman argued that the House bill would have “[alleviated] the pre-existing condition problem,” rather than getting rid of the protections altogether as he accused Democrats of falsely claiming. PolitFact has rated claims that the House bill wouldn’t eliminate protections for pre-existing conditions as “mostly false.”

Although McCain was one of three GOP lawmakers to vote against the “skinny” repeal, Lewis singled out McCain for his “no” vote — which came after he criticized Republicans for trying to push a repeal bill through and called for the return of regular order — as an unnecessary attempt to slight President Donald Trump.

“The late Arizona senator’s grievance with all things Trump was well known, but this obsession on the part of ‘Never Trump’ Republicans has to end,” Lewis wrote. “Disapprove of the president’s style if you like, but don’t sacrifice sound policy to pettiness.”

—————

The above sentiment by Congressman Jason Lewis is true. John McCain was very much a willing part of the “we (Republicans) are willing to lose 2018 if it means hurting Trump” sentiment. Well, they got what they wanted. Democrats took the House, (while still attempting to steal the Senate) and President Trump’s America First agenda is now facing even greater political opposition from the globalist, America Last, D.C. Swamp. John McCain is gone but the political corruption he helped expand from one coast of America to the other, very much remains.

As a longtime senator with ties to national and state campaign operations, Senator Lindsey Graham is hinting that the ongoing media-driven narrative that Democrats are likely to take back the House might be yet another false projection. Senator Graham is looking for some ‘big surprises’ in that regard tomorrow night.

We shall see. If you haven’t yet voted make sure you do so.

REPORT: Dems Push Panic Button As Republican Midterm Election Enthusiasm Surges

Republicans dominated early voting. Then, Democrats saw their side mobilizing for a final days push they were confident would give them the House. Now, Democrats are panicking as the mobilization on their side is being countered by suddenly resurgent and enthusiastic Republican voters determined to protect and promote President Donald Trump.

It was never supposed to be this close. Historically the party that controls the White House loses and often loses big during the Midterm cycle.

Not this time. The Senate looks increasingly secure for Republicans while the House, which was leaning heavily toward a Democrat takeover just a few weeks earlier, is now a dead heat between the two political parties and that has the Democrat leadership increasingly concerned as outlined in this Townhall report:

Whoa: GOP Actually Leads in National Early Voting — Plus, Dems Suddenly Worried About Joe Manchin?

More than 24 million early votes had been cast across the country as of yesterday, nearly doubling the total tally at this point in the 2014 cycle.

——————-

If Democrats are having to pump hundreds of thousands of dollars into campaigns like Joe Manchin at the 11th hour that is a clear sign their internal polling data is picking up on a shift in the electorate that is favoring Republicans. Internal polls have always been the true gauge of a campaign’s success. As for the media-driven polls, they are inaccurate at best and too often outright fabrications intended to shape, not gauge actual public opinion. (See Hillary Clinton: 2016)

President Trump continues to barnstorm the country at a pace that would exhaust most politicians half his age and the message he keeps repeating to the tens of thousands turning out to see him is GET OUT AND VOTE.

It seems those crowds are listening to their president and doing just that. The question now is if it will be enough to defeat the Democrat/Media machine that is as determined as ever to halt President Trump’s incredibly successful America First agenda.


 

REPORT: Trump Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski Tells House Democrats, “I’m Not Answering Your F*ucking Questions.”

According to a DAILY CALLER report out today, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was in no mood to play double-speak with House Democrats trying to convince him there was any substance to alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

Lewandowski said he wasn’t playing that game – though with far more aggressively colorful language. 

Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski reportedly told the House Intelligence Committee in his latest interview that he was done answering their “fucking questions.”

Lewandowski was the final witness in the committee’s probe into Russian interference and appeared in front of the committee for the second time last month.

Democrats were said to be unhappy and outraged by Mr. Lewandowski’s STFU stance.

Lewandowski didn’t care.
