Senate: GOP picks up 7 seats.
House: GOP picks up 15 seats.

Red wave baby

Man I want some of what you are smoking. Which are the 22 seats the R's are going to pick up?

I don't think there is going to be any blue wave. The big bucks dark money crowd that took 50 years getting control of all three branches of government and trumps butt bro putin aren't going to let dem's get control of the house and gain subpoena power. Dems will pick up some but not enough for a majority seats in the house after a deluge of big bucks 501 dark money spending and a russian led social media blitz against them for the next month..

Where there is smoke there's fire.

When will the trump illegal voting commission be releasing the findings of all of these illegal votes? Still waiting. Come on TPB when is it going to happen? Doesn't trump care about voter fraud? Is he unamerican? a commie?

Tenpoundbass says
But if they keep adding up they'll get there.

When? How many? Which election? Last research I saw put voter fraud at .0001%. Want to name all the races won by less than .0001%? Want to name all the races where votor fraud affected the outcome? Got anything beyond it's true because I believe it should be true. Anything at all? I'll be waiting. and waiting. and waiting.

When you add a rotten climate to high prices and ridiculous taxes, you have a straw that breaks the camels back.

and the higher tax part of the state is gaining population how? They don't care about high prices and ridiculous taxes because the weather is so great in places like westchester and rockland counties? ROFLOL.

I haven't checked BUT when I do, you are saying the R's will have spent "Big bucks" compared to the dems? OR, will I find you are full of shit?

Save me the time and fess up.

dr6B says

I don't think this is completely true. Big bucks dark money crowd was for Clinton.They do not care about party as long as candidate tows their line.

No amount of money could have gotten hillary elected. I'm talking about the money prior to and outside of the fucking trump vs hillary which one sucks least joke election. Downstream from the presidential election outside groups spend 800 billion in 2016 on senate/house candidates 80% republican. Prior elections had the similar ratios including presidential candidates. The conservative organizations didn't support trump heavily but the damn sure put a lot of money into R candidates outspending the left wing anywhere form 2 to 4 to 1 for many years. It's running almost 3 to 1 so far this election cycle.

So the question stands, do you believe the dark money d business group and ultra rich libertarians are going to let their huge investment for the last 50 years to get where we are now go by the wayside and have the D's gain control of the house which would include subpoena power? Even trump is going to have a hard time fucking up that advantage, but it's not for lack of trying.

The website you pointed me to shows 242M for D's and 328M for R's in 2016, which is not a huge difference. Less that difference between Trump and Hillary spending. In this election cycle, O'Rourke has out-raised Cruz by a large margin. I do not think this is as simple as big money wants R's only"

No one said it's simple. Pull out the presidential amounts and see what the differences are. Go back to earlier elections. Look at who the groups are and who they represent.

The big donors passed on trump. Dark money spending 2016 was down 1/3 from 2012 presidential election because of that. But spending on congressional races was up. Good thing trump was running against hillary who no amount of money could prop up. 2018 isn't a presidential election year, it's only congressional races.

The question still stands. Are the people who spent the last 50 years building the current libertarian republican party dominance going to let D's control the house without spending very dime they can throw at the races?

Important Reminder: Hillary outraised Trump almost 2:1. 3:1 in outside money.

yawn. how many times does that make for the same meaningless point in only 1 thread. the money went downstream. there were candidates other than trump/hillary running in 2016. sorry you weren't aware of that.

It snowed in the rockies in October. Holy shit, that never happened before. Oh wait I had a foot and a half of snow when I lived in Denver 1972 or so. In the first week of September. But wait, Denver has only had 15 years WITHOUT Oct snowfall since records started in 1880. Five of those were in the last 10 years. NOT having snowfall in October is unusual.

It appears someone needs to figure out the difference between weather and climate.

Damn tpb you struck piss in your pants funny gold here. The koch bros like all rich republicans want cheap immigrant labor which makes them liberals. Shit that's really funny.

Hey I really like the part about 1.5 million new immigrant workers a year. Pretty neat trick when there are only 1 million people coming in a year. Lots of them children or people who aren't going to work like grandparents. Great journalism. ROFLOL.

I also notice bretibart left out the part about legal immigrants cannot get any benefits for 5 years. Whoops.

Easy. In 1987, Ayers knew that radical Saudis wanted to fund Islamic Education So asked his friend Khaled al-Mansour, a Black Nationalist Islamist who co-founded the Saudi African Bank, the United African Bank, and several other companies, who was a financial advisor to bin Talal, to help him send more Black Radicals to Harvard. One of the names to be sponsored was Barak Hussein Obama; bin Talal contributed funds. One of the go betweens was Percy Sutton, another activist Black Nationalist.

Holy shit. Most people (ok almost all people) would believe that with the right wing echo chamber going after Obama for 9 years some one would have found the letter written to harvard or evidence of paying for obama's tuition. I guess the letter and records of payments got taken by aliens with crooks in their arms. No wait it's the grassy knoll, it's always the grassy knoll.

An organizer for a catholic church community group in chicago is considered a "black radical". ROFLOL. and how pray tell did the name of this "black radical" catholic church community organizer who attended the Trinity United Church of Christ get from Chicago to NY so black nationalist islamists could send him to harvard law for an islamic education? Seriously this is some really funny shit. Tell us more, tell us more. How many other christian "black radical" community organizers did Talai send to harvard law for an islamic education?

I see this a little differently, @Patrick.. Our CIA loved working with Islamist Radicals, has done so many times; Brennan is knee deep in that shit. A liberalizing Saudi Arabia is actually not good in their minds, and one that is working with Trump is definitely bad in their eyes.

So now it's a deep state false flag operation by the CIA to shut down liberalization in KSA? How did they manage to run the operation inside the KSA embassy? Oh wait, he actually came out with his elbow crooked and the cia set up mirrors so that the cameras didn't record him leaving. Then the CIA grabbed him. Of course, it's all so Damn these guys are good. Must be the same crew that took down the twin towers and faked the moon landings. .

Yes, the Koch brothers agree with the liberal "open border" policy to make poor American citizens even poorer by driving down their wages. So that does put the Koch brothers on the liberal side of this issue.

What liberal open border policy is that? You seem confused by the difference between wanting to have people coming here vs wanting to treat them humanly once they are here. Want to show where "liberals" are advocating open borders? I'll be waiting, and waiting, and waiting.

“That’s a Koch brothers proposal, right-wing people in this country would love … an open-border policy. Bring in all kinds of people, work for $2 or $3 an hour, that would be great for them. I don’t believe in that. I think we have to raise wages in this country.” Bernie Sanders when asked about open borders.

Here's another program:

All that's missing from your endless rant is what percentage of immigrants are eligible. Want to get into that? I didn't think so.

So trump has had almost 2 years to eliminate these benefits. Not to mention go after employers to eliminate jobs for illegals. What happened? NADA, nothing, zippo. Trump must be an open border fanatic also.or he would have done something. Actions count.

I say lets stop chain immigration. Start by booting out Melana Trumps parents to show trump is serous about the issue. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

Deficits are the one thing both major parties appear to agree on. Two Presidents in a row, of ostensibly opposite parties, have each doubled the national debt. We have seen every possible combination of government (Republican Congress and White House, Democratic Congress and White House, and divisions), and the result is always more deficits.

There is just a teeny tiny little bit of difference between doubling the debt with tax cuts and war spending vs inheriting the second largest economic disaster in the history of the country.

Pretty impressive that Trump sent the sec of state to KSA to help them get their stories straight or at least come up with a story that the Trump could claim was plausible to try to preserve the fiction of the new and improved KSA.

Supreme Court Takes Case That Could End Internet Censorship

Very very unlikely the Roberts court is gong to issue a broad ruling . Have you ever listened to Roberts speak on his philosophy as chief justice? CSPAN has some of his forums in venues like law schools. He is very committed to narrow rulings and court consensus. Check some of them out some time. I recently listened to him speak at U Minn law school.

In the 1 in a million chance they do issue a broad ruling it will not be expanding the first amendment to force private social media companies to essentially adhere to a non existent fairness doctrine. The case already has 2 districts (6th and Columbia) that have ruled in favor the supreme court's existing state actors test. while the 2nd has ruled to ignore existing law and precedent. Nader completely fucked up the first amendment with his VA pharmacy ruling by a very liberal and activist supreme court. Which bit nader and the court activists in the ass for the next 30 years finally leading to citizens united. Be careful what you wish for you may get it.

But Roberts court is conservative, strict constitutionalist, and pro business. The supreme court has to take the case because there is a conflicting ruling between districts, but I think they will simply affirm the 6th and Columbia rulings leaving the 2nd overruled.

Of course I thought Kelso was a slam dunk protection for private property case. So you never know what any supreme court will do.

How about the 3,000 they killed in downtown New York Bob? Besides, I'd argue the Saudis killed this guy more carefully than Putin spreading radioactive poison all over Europe or even the US droning suspects from 20,000 feet.

You've been rightfully critical about the Saudi Wahabbi Islamist for years on this site. Why are you bent that Saudi Arabia took out a Wahabbi?

Where am I bent the saudi's took at a wahabbi? I'm bent the saudi apologists starting with two scoops up to and including trump are still trying to sell the new improved KSA bullshit when they just proved they are worse than ever. I don't think any country ever had the balls to brazenly kill someone inside one of their embassies before.

I notice the kinder gentler KSA hasn't stopped funding radical imans or madras schools (aka terrorist recruitment and training centers) all around the world. All the radical islamic terrorist attacks around the world lead right back to the KSA. So hey, let's goad our way into war with Iran because they are bad people. WTF?

If we shutdown immigration today, even at current 4 mil population (I just got it from Wikipedia) in 55 yr at 5% conservative growth, they can get to double digit.
100*(4*1.05**55)/(330*1.01**55) = 10.26%.

That assumes no group but musliims will have a positive birth the next 55 years. I find that to be pretty improbable. Where is the research on this amazing phenomena? Other than it's true because I believe it should be true.

If we don't shut down immigration muslims will lose ground. Only 6% of immigrants historically came from the middle east or north africa and trump shut most of them down. Close to 40% come from latin america and another 40% are asian. OMG all the mexican and chinese muslims pouring into the country. The horror, the horror.

The only difference is that religion, race, gender, and sexual orientation are protected classes because of the historic oppression of these classes whereas political orientation is not currently a protected class. Personally, I think political orientation needs to be a protected class given how divisive it has become.

remove all discrimination laws. We'd be better off. Just protect free speech.

What discrimination laws do you think are forcing facebook to drop infowars?

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech. That is the only constitutional protection of free speech that exists. It says nothing about corporations.

There have been 240 years (with the exception of a couple very brief periods of liberal courts) starting with Dartmouth College v. Woodward of supreme court rulings expanding the rights of corporations. What exactly do you think will inspire one of the most conservative strict constitutionalist courts in history to force an entirely new set of requirements on corporations granting new and unprecedented free speech rights that have never existed before that are not mentioned in the constitution?

There is a great book out there called we the corporations detailing the history of the supreme court and corporations. Well worth a read if you actually want to know the history and facts.

I missed the part of the article that says what KSA DID about their sponsorship of terrorism around the world. Both officially as a government and private money. It's noticeably absent. So the saudi's now openly admit to fostering terrorism against the US and the rest of the west for decades. Nice. With friends like these who needs enemies?

Think about it. If Muslims have the highest birth rates, and all other religions face declining birth rates, it's just a matter of time before Muslims are the only group with a positive birth rate. It's not just probable, but very likely.

If? Probable? Likely?

Blue says

Not true, you missed that I did add one percent rate to the rest, currently its less than 1.7 though as per us censers and falling.

Nothing like well researched and documented information. What exactly is the muslim birth rate in the US? How about compared to other groups? The other groups that you generously took 40% off of their birth rates. Don't let facts screw you up but birth rates of all groups including muslims drops through the floor when they move from a poor country to a first world country.

Even majority muslim countries have falling birth rates. The fertility rate across all 49 Muslim-majority countries fell from 4.3 children per woman in 1990-95 to about 2.9 in 2010-15. This was still higher than the global fertility rate in 2015, but it’s a strikingly fast drop given the fact that it took some Western European countries nearly a century to transition from six children per woman to three.

But hey it's true because I believe it should be true is still the gold standard of proof on patnet.

The question still stands. Are the people who spent the last 50 years building the current libertarian republican party dominance going to let D's control the house without spending very dime they can throw at the races?

First, most R's (with exception of Paul who was redistricted out by his colleagues) are not libertarian. Second, I do not believe that "big money" cares which party is in power, so they will support "useful idiots" from either party.

Most R's have made a deal with the devil and if they don't dance to the libertarian tune they will see their funding disappear and face a strong heavily funded primary challenge from some one who will. Big money? Who's big money? Big money on both sides very much cares which party is in power. Only big money on the R side has a long term coordinated plan they have been executing for 40 years.

So the question still stands, after reaching pretty much the pinnacle of their long term goals are the big boys on the right going to roll over and let the D's take back the house? Hint, the koch bro's libertarian network is planning to spend 60% more on republican congressional races in 2018 than 2016 at 400 million. Which is 150 million more than the RNC can come up with. I would say that is a pretty impressive concentration of money and power in one single group that all R politicians have to respect.

I haven't heard of the new kinder gentler KSA taking any steps (as in actually doing anything not talking about doing something. Form a committee is the oldest do nothing dodge in history) to rein in support of terrorism around the world coming from KSA. The new kinder gentler KSA is actively funding and using Al-Qaida in Yemen as we speak. Which makes the US and Al-Qaida very ironic and unwilling allies in Yemen. I wonder what projects this branch of Al-Qaida will be working on after the Yemen war?

If, possibly, could, assumes, might, suggests, estimated, concluded, likely, according to, etc. etc. Hint, when you see something the contains those words in every paragraph it's either a bunch of meaningless speculation, sell newspapers sensationalism, or ideological nonsense.

The paper suggests that if migration continues at the same rate but refugee movement stops, the UK will have the highest overall population of Muslims in the EU, at 13m, making up 16.7 per cent of the population.

The report "supposes" migrants from the middle east will continue at a record influx of asylum seekers fleeing conflicts in Syria and other predominantly Muslim countries levels for the next 32 years? . Totally contradictory but interesting.thought. I can see why you like it since you frequently argue contradictory positions. On the same subject. "Overall, an estimated 43 per cent of all migrants to the UK between mid-2010 and mid-2016 were Muslims,". . Pretty odd how they picked those dates. Just happened to be the peak of the syrian war crises. What a totally unexpected coincidence. Sort of like the sun rising in the east.

The saudi's have a handful of DF3 chinese cruise missiles that can't hit the broad side of a continent that could reach turkey, but when they are gone that's it. Neither have enough bomber capacity to do shit even if they could overfly syria and iraq. What would they be shooting?

Nothing dishonest other than your reply. We aren't being invaded by ms-13, they started here and have plenty of us members whether anyone comes from anywhere else or not. Not that it matters. There are 10,000 ms-13 in the US out of the 1.5 million gang members. If trump actually wanted to do something about gang violence other than run his mouth (not very likely) he would start with the big gangs that account for most of the gang crime and violence. Where is your concern about victims the big gangs? Curiously missing.

Please please stop embarrassing yourself with this. When a government arrests someone, has a trial, then executes them it's called a legal system. It may be a bad legal system. It may be a legal system many people disagree with. But it's accepted internationally as a normal function of government. When a country sends 15 goons to another country to kill someone it's called murder. In case you haven't looked at the news in a long time murder is always news worthy no matter where it happens.

With it being a capital crime until south carolina being the last state to do away with the death penalty for sodomy in 1873. So yea it was ok to torture and execute gays in the good old USA for a long time.

Bob, it's not a strawman, nor is it Whataboutery. It's a direct regurgitation of your own words:

It's okay to execute Gays and Witches - and apparently unmarried Princesses for adultery - if you have a Trial based on Shari'a Law and Islamism. But not Muslim Brotherhood shills who are trying to pick up paperwork to divorce their wife in Saudi Arabia - so they only have to pay 130 days support.

My direct words were it's not front page news when someone is tried and executed according to a nations laws. The rest of the shit you just keep making up. Show one single place where I said anything was "ok" or not "ok" since obviously my statement I'm not offering my opinion on whether I condone or condemn was outside of you comprehension. .

Regurgitate is when you chew a bunch of stuff up, mix it up in your stomach. then throw it up all in a jumbled mess. So you are correct that you regurgitated.

Did you catch KSA's story of the day today? Well we sort of, kind of, may have, maybe planned it. But it was an accident that we planned it. It's like listening to a 5 year old explaining how the lamp got knocked off the table and broken. ROFLOL.
