Could GOP Red Tide Crush Democratic Blue Wave in Midterm Elections?

Published

on

As the November midterm elections barrel ever closer and closer, you can almost literally hear the wind being sucked out of the sails of the Democratic Party, who for months on end have claimed that there was going to be a “blue wave” across the country.

Meaning they were convinced that since Trump is president and everyone hates the man — they don’t really, that’s just the perception of the left — that they would easily take back Congress as revenge for the president stomping Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.

However, it seems that, thanks to the treatment of Brett Kavanaugh during his SCOTUS confirmation hearing, and the overall positive performance of President Trump, a red tide is forming and pushing back.

Jason Vogel is fired up to vote. He says his passion crystallized two weeks ago when he saw just how chaotic Washington would be if the Democrats seized power in Congress. When Democratic senators smeared Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as an attempted rapist without proof, and angry protestors stormed the Capitol, he says he grew increasingly concerned.

“Hard to imagine that occurring every day, but you begin to realize that is exactly what would happen if I didn’t turn out to vote,” he said.

Vogel is with his family at the Erie Insurance Arena to rally for Trump and local GOP Congressman Mike Kelly, who is running for re-election. The Vogels are seated far away from the stage, but that doesn’t seem to dampen their enthusiasm.

The 40-year-old union steward for the local Teamsters 397 says he became motivated to vote for Kelly when he realized everything important to him is being championed by President Trump and is on Kelly’s ballot: “The Second Amendment, trade, job creation and keeping a good economy going, that comes to a daily fight if the Republicans lose the midterms,” he said.

“A lot of my friends feel the same way. We ask ourselves, ‘Why would you vote Democrat?’ Our lives certainly weren’t better under their way of doing business.”

If you’re still not convinced that a large portion of Americans have flipped against left-wing ideology and policy positions, just look at the size of the audience gathering at Trump rallies. At an event in Erie, the president was flabbergasted by the fact the venue was packed out and that 14,000 more people were outside who couldn’t get in.

Think about it.

That’s a heck of a lot of people.

It truly does not appear that things are going to be a walk in the park for the left like they have assumed up to this point, which means they’re likely going to play really dirty if the red tide crushes the blue wave.

You think you’ve seen the left participate in violence before, things could end up getting very rough if that scenario unfolds.

For Amy Westbrook, a Republican who says she’s an occasional ticket splitter, voting in the midterms means preserving things that are important to her, like traditional values. “I just heard Mike Kelly for the very first time. I like what I heard,” she said.

Standing in the overflow crowd at the rally, Westbrook says she wasn’t energized by the Kavanaugh theatrics, though she did scrutinize the hearings. “I really wanted to hear both sides and get to the truth, that was important to me,” she said.

She’s not always a fan of the president’s demeanor, “but I am happy with the results,” she said.

At the end of the day, the average American voter is not a big fan of radical left-wing policies, having lived under them for almost a decade and witnessing their destructive influence on both liberty and the economy. They’re ready for something different, and the hysterics by progressives over Kavanaugh and the total disregard they have for due process is only cementing the love for Trump.

Guess these folks will just never learn.

BLM Activists Suggests Waukesha Parade Massacre is Beginning of a ‘Revolution’

The left just cannot help themselves when it comes to promoting violence.

Published

on

As with any tragedy that occurs here in the United States, there are political and cultural organizations and individuals looking to spin the Waukesha Christmas parade massacre into something that selfishly behooves their cause, and these suggestions are growing more offensive by the day.

The latest allegation comes from a self-proclaimed “militant” with the Black Lives Matter movement, who believes that the event may be the start of something much larger.

A Milwaukee Black Lives Matter activist said the Christmas parade attack in Waukesha, Wisconsin, appears to signal “the revolution” may have begun.

“I don’t know. Now we’ll have to wait and see because they do have somebody in custody. We may have to wait and see what they say about why this happened,” Vaun Mayes said on Facebook Live on Monday. “But it sounds possible that the revolution has started in Wisconsin. It started with this Christmas parade.”

Mayes is a well-known activist in Milwaukee. He describes himself as a “Battle rapper, Community activist, Songwriter, Tattoo artist, Militant,” in his Twitter bio, which is accompanied by various hashtags, including “#BlackLivesMatter,” “#BlackLoveMatters” and “#RBG.”

Mayes would go on to parrot a largely-condemned suggestion that the attack was meant as revenge for the verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial.

“I said I wasn’t going to speak on no rumors. Y’all are repeating some of the stuff that, you know, that has come up. And I can tell you that the initial person who reached out to me said that they believe that this has to do with the verdict, and so I made an assumption of which side it would be from, but I don’t know,” he added in the video, referring to the not-guilty verdict of Kyle Rittenhouse. The video was filmed at the scene of the parade attack.

These comments speak to a larger issue here in the US, in which many on the left side of the aisle are continuing to turn toward violent rhetoric, and away from the principles of liberty and justice for all.

Ukraine Accuses Russians of Plotting Coup for Next Week

The highly specific threat was made public just hours ago.

Published

on

For years now, Russia has been bullying the world.  From weapons tests to forced annexations to being the likely cause of “Havana Syndrome”, there is little doubt that Vladimir Putin and his Kremlin cronies are playing the role of the global villain without even the slightest amount of regret.

And, after spending years attempting to force Ukraine back into Russian control, the small nation’s President is now suggesting that some miscreants from Moscow are planning to stage a coup in his country.

Russia has denied any involvement after Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Friday that an attempted coup d’etat is being planned in his country to take place next week.

Zelenskyy told reporters that Ukraine had uncovered a plot for an attempted coup and that Ukrainians and Russians were involved, The Washington Post reported. While he also spoke of a threat of military escalation from Russia, he fell short of accusing the Kremlin of an involvement in the planned coup, according to Reuters.

The Ukrainian President was not subtle in his statement, either.

“We have challenges not only from the Russian Federation and possible escalation – we have big internal challenges. I received information that a coup d’etat will take place in our country on Dec. 1-2,” Zelenskyy said, adding that his country was prepared for any escalation, Reuters reported.

While Putin and the Russians continue to deny their involvement, his reputation for mischief makes it all that much harder to take his rebukes seriously.
