Fascism, anyone?

Democrats are very concerned about the November 6 election.

They know the Senate will be retained by Republicans.

There’s also an outside shot the GOP keeps the House, as well.

This happened at the request of Democrats.

From Reuters:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Twitter Inc (TWTR.N) deleted more than 10,000 automated accounts posting messages that discouraged people from voting in Tuesday’s U.S. election and wrongly appeared to be from Democrats, after the party flagged the misleading tweets to the social media company.

“We took action on relevant accounts and activity on Twitter,” a Twitter spokesman said in an email. The removals took place in late September and early October.

Twitter removed more than 10,000 accounts, according to three sources familiar with the Democrats’ effort. The number is modest, considering that Twitter has previously deleted millions of accounts it determined were responsible for spreading misinformation in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

On Republican chances to keep both the upper and lower chambers, via Daily Wire:

Since the Kavanaugh confirmation circus, Republicans’ chances of keeping the Senate have strengthened. For the last few weeks, Real Clear Politics‘ average of the key polls has given Republicans 50 “safe” Senate seats and narrow leads in three of the six “tossup” races. According to Silver’s FiveThirtyEight, Republicans now have a 5 in 6 chance (82.7%; up 0.3% since last week) of maintaining control of the Senate, giving the Democrats just a 1 in 6 chance (17.3%) of taking over.

Silver projects Republicans to end up with 52 seats and Democrats with 48, a net gain of one seat for Republicans and one seat more than is needed for the 51-seat majority. Silver currently gives Republicans an 80% chance of gaining up to four seats or losing up to two, and just a 10% chance that they gain more than four or lose more than two.

Real Clear Politics‘ poll averages currently show Democrats with 205 seats that are “safely” blue, including 14 that are “likely” to go their way and 18 that “lean” Democrat. Republicans currently have 200 “safe” seats (20 likely and 26 leaning). Last week, RCP gave Republicans only 199 “safe” seats. If those numbers hold up, that means the Democrats only need 13 of the 30 tossup seats to attain the 218-majority in the House. Republicans, meanwhile, need to win 18. The one thing that could work in Republicans’ favor is that 28 of the 30 tossups are currently held by Republicans.

Let’s hear your thoughts.

Watch: Biden Bashes Obama Foreign Policy, Says He Had to Rely On Me to Get Things Done

Did that end up working out well?

As of December 10, 2019, Barack Obama has yet to endorse his former Vice President, Joe Biden, for POTUS. The two worked together to bring America down for nearly a full decade, but, still, Joe can’t get no love. What more do Democrats need to know about Biden? Are there any gaffes, racial or just plain ignorant, that he has yet to make? Has he ever done anything to benefit the United States during his decades in public service? Come on, people. When is enough enough? Get over the hatred of Trump so America can finally move forward. WATCH: Woah.

Perfect timing…

Steve Harvey most likely severely ticked off every liberal in America the other day. Funny enough, he didn’t even say a single word. All he had to do was roll his eyes. The timing was perfect. From Breitbart: In a clip shared widely on social media, Harvey is seen asking Miss South Africa, the competition’s winner, Zozibini Tunzi what future generations can do to “protect future generations from climate change.” WATCH: Steve Harvey with an all-time eye roll after asking the climate change question #MissUniverse2019 https://twitter.com/pdglenn/status/1203864941477924864?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1203864941477924864&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fentertainment%2F2019%2F12%2F09%2Fsteve-harvey-rolls-his-eyes-after-reading-climate-change-question-at-miss-universe-pageant%2F The 62-year-old comedian, who is a devout Christian, has never played by the rules demanded by the progressive left. Following President Donald Trump’s inauguration, he agreed to work with Housing Secretary Ben Carson on improving America’s inner cities, later praising him for “keeping his word” on the issue.
