Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu , burdened by ties to an unpopular president, lost her bid for a fourth term on Saturday to Republican Bill Cassidy.

With less than 1% of precincts reporting, the Associated Press projected that Mr. Cassidy, a physician and three-term House member, would win the state’s runoff election. Mr. Cassidy had 65% of the vote to 35% for Ms. Landrieu.

The outcome means that Republicans emerge from this year’s midterm elections with nine additional Senate seats and will hold a 54-46 majority when lawmakers are sworn in next year. Among its victories, the GOP swept five Democratic senators from office.

Landslide to where? All I hear is talk, criticism, and business as usual!

Unless some GOOD people do something---we are toast! Obama did his illegal amnesty without a whimper from anyone! The US Constitution states what has to be done for Legal citizenship. It also states that no person/baby is automatically a US citizen just because they are born here. That "anchor baby" excuse is a lie! The US constitution addresses this issue and states that an illegal baby on US soil is NOT an American Citizen nor a dual citizen! The law is there and has been upheld by the USSC! However; the politicians claim ANY baby born on US Soil is a legal American Citizen. The US Constitution says they are not!

I agree Mary Ann. The constitution is a huge stumbling block for the communists, and they are doing everything they can to destroy it. The immigration system is not broken, it is just not what the communists want - no borders.

When the UN Agenda 21 is considered it is obvious what they are trying to do to our nation.

Judy, I agree that God is in control. In His control He is taking a hands off approach to man's futile attempts to govern himself, and every single attempt has ended in failure.

We are now capable of destroying ourselves entirely. He, God, will intervene to prevent it and force HIS GOVERNMENT upon all. This is what the Kingdom of God is all about.

Man has been given a long rope in order to emphatically learn the lesson that his continued existence is solely dependent on Him. 

  Dale, one thing you missed. God WILL NOT FORCE HIS GOVERMENT ON US ! You will have a choice ! You will be able to live with the 10 LAWS GOD GAVE US . Or not ! I think I can abide by HIS LAWS ! The other choice ? Don't think that I will go there ! But what a great wonderful world we will have !

Dale, Judy, Ted- God is in control of Heaven and the Earth but he gave Man Free Will. Read your History books. look at what man has done to each other since the beginning of our recorded History. Yes he gave the Jews the 10 Commandments, but he saw they couldn't follow them so he sacrificed his son, Jesus, for their sins. At that time, some of the Jews believed that Jesus was the son of God and became Christians, others did not and remained Jews. I am not worried about Climate Change because I believe God will protect his Creation. To me, I only have one Commandment from God. TO BEAR WITNESS TO HIS SON, JESUS CHRIST! This Revelation came to me after many prayers of asking God to show me or tell me what his purpose was for my life.

 Robert, if you will read. God sent the Devil and his fallen angle that tried to defeat GOD ! And take his throne ! So, if you will read ? They were sent to earth to rule. His time is short and he, they, know it ! Look at all the things that are happening ! Wars and rumors of wars. Earthquacks, water problems, race riots, christians being killed as we speak ! Why are we here ? To protect HIS world ! Follow his laws ! And get ready for his return ! Along with Jesus's NEW JERUSALEM ! 

Martial law will be here before the new house and senate are seated.

Right on point Louise. I just wish more Americans understood the fight that we are in. Communists are masters of deception. They are controlling the narrative in the main stream media, and have done a masterful job of subverting the younger generations. We are in for a long, hard fight.

Hallelujah!!

BUT this ONLY works if Republicans actually stick to principles.  So far the RINO establishment is acting as if the conservatives/Tea Party played no role in this sweep.  

It must be noted that this mid-term saw the highest third party activity in history.  I voted Libertarian on every non-critical position.  Unless we see the REPUBLIC and conservative constitutional governance restored, my money and my vote will go to the Libertarians in 2016.

Many thanks go to the Obama team and Congressional Democrats for being the most incompetent, discouraging and scandalous 6 years of any president. It was their majority to lose and they did it all to themselves. It could not happen to a better loser group of pseudo intellects, aka educated derelicts.       THANK YOU ALL REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS FOR YOUR VOTE OF CONFIDENCE AND HAVING THE FORTITUDE TO KICK THESE GUYS OUT !!

THE REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP TEAM MUST NOW GET BUSY AND UNDO ALL THE BLUNDERS, FOIBLES OF THE LAST 6 YEARS AND GET AMERICA GOING THE RIGHT DIRECTION.                  

As long as a-hole Is the Speaker, what difference does it make.

Because Cassidy now moves from the House to the Senate and he can help rejuvenate that Chamber  - now that Reid is OUT!  

As for the Speaker - whether the "a-hole" is the Speaker, or not; we have a heap of work to do to get those people to start doing what we elected them to do!

ALERT ALERT

Breaking — West Virginia Lawmakers Invite Persecuted Pro-Second Amendment Counties In Virginia To Join Their State

West Virginia lawmakers introduced legislation to invite persecuted pro Second Amendment Counties to join their state.

The West Virginia Senate adopted a resolution to remind Virginia residents from Frederick County that they have a standing invite — from 1862 — to become part of West Virginia.

West Virginia freedom fighters broke away from Virginia Democrat slave owners during the Civil War.

This week West Virginia has once again invited persecuted Virginia pro 2-A counties to come join their state.

Sounds like a winning plan!

Resolution 8 reads as follows:

HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION 8

(By Delegates Howell, Summers, Shott, Householder, C. Martin, Hott, Graves, Cadle, Barnhart, J. Jeffries, Maynard, Phillips, Foster, Hamrick, Steele, D. Jeffries, Wilson, Waxman, Bartlett, Paynter, Linville, Sypolt, Bibby, Hill, Ellington, Higginbotham, J. Kelly, Mandt, Pack, Dean and P. Martin)

[Introduced January 14, 2020]

Providing for an election to be had, pending approval of the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and a majority of qualified citizens voting upon the proposition prior to August 1, 2020, for the admission of certain counties and independent cities of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the State of West Virginia as constituent counties, under the provisions of Article VI, Section 11 of the Constitution of West Virginia

Whereas, The Legislature of West Virginia finds that in 1863, due to longstanding perceived attitudes of neglect for the interests of the citizens of Western Virginia, and a studied failure to address the differences which had grown between the counties of Western Virginia and the government at Richmond, the Commonwealth of Virginia was irretrievably divided, and the new State of West Virginia was formed; and

Whereas, Such division occurred as the Trans-Allegheny portions of Virginia perceived that they suffered under an inequitable measure of taxation by which they bore a disproportionate share of the tax burden; and

Whereas, That this perception was further compounded by the effects of a scheme of representation by which Trans-Allegheny Virginia was not allowed to have its proper and equitable share of representation in the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, That this arrangement arguably resulted in the tax dollars of Trans-Allegheny Virginia being used to enrich the Tidewater through internal improvements which did not benefit the people of Western Virginia, while the people of the Trans-Allegheny had little to no say in how their tax dollars were allocated; and

Whereas, Though this course led to an irreconcilable division, and the subsequent formation of West Virginia, yet, the longstanding peaceful cooperation between this State and the Commonwealth of Virginia is a sign that such separation, undertaken even under the most challenging and onerous of circumstances, can, with the passage of time, yield lasting results which are beneficial to both sides; and

Whereas, In the intervening years, the same neglect for the interests of many of the remaining counties of the Commonwealth of Virginia has allegedly been evidenced by the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, Particularly, many citizens of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont contend that an inequitable measure of taxation exists by which they bear a disproportionate share of the present tax burden of the Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont also believe that, currently, a scheme of representation exists by which the citizens of Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont do not have a proper share of representation in the government at Richmond; and, consequently

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont believe that their tax dollars are used to enrich the Tidewater and Northern Virginia through internal improvements which do not benefit the people of these other parts of Virginia, while the people of these other parts of Virginia have little to no say in how their tax dollars are allocated; and

Whereas, In recent days, these tensions have been compounded by a perception of contempt on the part of the government at Richmond for the differences in certain fundamental political and societal principles which prevail between the varied counties and cities of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, In the latest, and most evident, in this string of grievances, the government at Richmond now seeks to place intolerable restraints upon the rights guaranteed under the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution to the citizens of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The Legislative body of West Virginia believes that this latest action defies the wise counsel which has come down to us in the august words of our common Virginia Founders: as the government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that tribune of liberty, Patrick Henry-who stated to the Virginia Ratifying Convention in 1788 that “The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of a Signer of the Declaration and premier advocate of American independence, Richard Henry Lee-who stated in The Federal Farmer that “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that zealous guardian of our inherent rights, George Mason-who stated that “To disarm the people…[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of the declaimer of our independence and theoretician of our freedoms, Thomas Jefferson-who stated in his first draft of the Virginia Constitution, that “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms”; and

Whereas, The Boards of Supervisors of many Virginia counties and the Councils of many Virginia cities have recognized this dangerous departure from the doctrine of the Founders on the part of the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, These Boards of Supervisors and Councils have passed resolutions refusing to countenance what they affirm are unwarranted and unconstitutional measures by that government to infringe the firearm rights of Virginians; and

Whereas, The actions of the government at Richmond undertaken since the recent general election have, regrettably, resulted in unproductive contention and escalating a lamentable state of civic tension; and

Whereas, That, as has been proven in numerous instances, such as have been observed internationally in more recent times with the peaceful dissolutions of Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union, and the creation of South Sudan, or, earlier in Virginia’s own history, with the formation of Kentucky, the peaceful partition of neighboring peoples can occur, and, is often very beneficial to both sides in reducing tensions and improving the tenor of discourse over ongoing political and societal differences; and

Whereas, Article VI, Section 11 of The Constitution of the State of West Virginia explicitly permits additional territory to be admitted into, and become part of this state, with the consent of the Legislature and of a majority of the qualified voters of the state; and

Whereas, In a spirit of conciliation, the Legislature of West Virginia hereby extends an invitation to our fellow Virginians who wish to do so, to join us in our noble experiment of 156 years of separation from the government at Richmond; and, we extend an invitation to any constituent county or city of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the body politic of the State of West Virginia, under the conditions set forth in our state Constitution, specifically, with the consent of a majority of the voters of such county or city voting upon such proposition; and we hereby covenant that their many grievances shall be addressed, and, we further covenant with them that their firearms rights shall be protected to the fullest extent possible under our Federal and State Constitutions; and

Whereas, Providing that the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia shall give its assent to any county or independent city presently part of the Commonwealth of Virginia having the opportunity and ability to do so, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia.
