Blue Wave Busted as Left Makes Only Predicted Gains

The left fell short of their predicted “blue wave”, and the mainstream media was powerless in attempting to spin that reality.

The time has come and gone, and the left are once again left with a only a little to show for all of their incessant grandstanding.

Historically speaking, what happened last night was both extraordinary and rather ordinary.  On the cutting edge of the 2018 midterms we saw a whole lot of firsts:  The first openly gay governor ever was elected in Colorado, and the youngest woman ever elected to congress were both offered jobs by the American people last night in a stunning sign of the times.

A slew of other unique candidates were on the ballots as well, making for one of the more diverse elections that our nation has ever endured.

On the other hand, the way the cards fell politically was not that unusual at all.

In fact, when looking at historical trends for a President with an approval rating such as Trump’s currently stands, the gains made by democrats in the house was well-expected.  In fact, the possibility was so probable that Nancy Pelosi felt comfortable predicting it not once, but twice on the national stage.

So, while the democrats may be celebrating their victory in the House, little else went their way last night.

Now we prepare for a real battle in the Beltway.

Desparate Expansion of NYC Trump Probe Targets Ex-Bodyguard

The longer this thing goes on, the harder these prosecutors are having to work to find any dirt on The Don.

In New York City, there are powerful people on the hunt for something, anything, that they could use to take down Donald Trump, and this desperate endeavor has turned ever wilder as it goes on. Having Trump’s tax returns and access to his former “fixer” Michael Cohen is not enough for these allegedly competent prosecutors, however, and they are now going to take a look at folks like Trump’s ex-bodyguard. New York prosecutors investigating former President Donald Trump’s business have advised Trump’s former bodyguard and current chief operating officer, Matthew Calamari, and his son that they should get their own lawyers, not use the Trump Organization’s attorneys, The Wall Street Journal reports, citing people familiar with the matter. Prosecutors are reportedly looking into whether the Calamaris have illegally avoided paying taxes on benefits provided by the Trump Organization, including housing and cars. New York City District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. has been investigating the Trump Organization for a few years, focused most recently on whether the company manipulates the value of its properties to get loans and lower its taxes. Vance’s prosecutors are similarly investigating, and widely believed to be trying to gain the cooperation of, Trump Organization chief financial officer Allen Weisselberg, but they don’t appear to have had much luck yet. Now it appears their interest in these benefits extends beyond Weisselberg, the Journal reports, noting that neither Calamari or Weisselberg have been accused of wrongdoing. The Calamaris have taken the prosecutors’ advice and hired Nicholas Gravante Jr., who has represented former AIG head Maurice “Hank” Greenberg and Hunter Biden, among other prominent clients, the Journal reports. The prosecutors who are targeting the Trump organization have been at it for years already, and, after having garnered the aforementioned materials, have still not pressed any charges.  One could imagine that,…

Activists Cleared from Lafayette Square Shut Down by Federal Judge

The Trump administration will not be help liable for the incident.

For a good, long time, the mainstream media was insisting that then-President Donald Trump was responsible for the clearing of Black Lives Matter protesters from Lafayette Square last year, in an incident that made international headlines. The moment was a fraught one, with demonstrators being forcibly removed from the area by the use of force and tear gas.  It certainly didn’t appear to be a shining moment for free speech, and the rabid liberal media worked their tails off trying to pin the whole thing on Trump. A year later, it would be revealed during the Biden administration that the clearing of the park had nothing to do with Donald Trump, and was being conducted for other, premeditated purposes altogether. Now, activists who were looking to take legal action against the Trump administration are getting shut down in court. A federal judge has dismissed a majority of the claims filed by activists and civil liberties groups who accused the Trump administration of violating the civil rights of protesters who were forcefully removed by police using chemical agents from a park near the White House before then-President Donald Trump walked to a nearby church to take a photo. U.S. District Judge Dabney Friedrich said Monday the claims in the suit, which alleged that Trump and then-Attorney General William Barr had conspired to violate the rights of protesters last June, were speculative and it was premature for the court to conclude whether the actions of law enforcement officers were justified. Friedrich dismissed the claims against Barr and other federal officials, including the acting U.S. Park Police chief, Gregory Monahan, finding there wasn’t sufficient evidence to prove there was any agreement or plan to violate the rights of the protesters. The judge also said the law gives them immunity in civil litigation. Legal…
