Nancy Pelosi Could Soon Be The Speaker Of The House, And That Should Freak You Out

Are you ready for the second coming of Speaker Pelosi? As a result of the recent Obamacare debacle, the American people are deeply frustrated with the Republicans in Congress. And having nowhere else to go, many voters are considering turning to the Democrats for answers. As you will see below, one recent survey found that only 37 percent of voters nationally say that they plan to support Republican candidates for Congress in 2018. If the 2018 mid-term elections were held at this moment, the Republicans would be in big trouble and it would be quite likely that the Democrats would take back control of the U.S. House of Representatives.

And I am not the only one that is warning of political doom on the horizon. Earlier today, an editorial by Newt Gingrich and Brad Anderson also warned of what could happen if the Republicans don’t get their act together…

Following Republicans’ failure to fix the country’s health care system, polls show Americans are increasingly flirting with Democratic governance in Congress next year. This means Republicans must change their game plan. The next six months must not be the same as the last six months.

To regain their legislative momentum and keep their majority, Republicans must clearly demonstrate they are fighting for the country’s hardworking taxpayers. This means passing a major tax cut by Thanksgiving — and making it retroactive to the start of this year.

I am not particularly optimistic that we will see major tax cuts by the end of this year, but hopefully I will be proven wrong.

If the Republicans in Congress continue to fumble the ball, we could see a historic wipeout in 2018. As I mentioned above, the polling numbers don’t look good for congressional Republicans at this point…

Democrats stand to win big in the 2018 midterm elections, according to a new poll – perhaps flipping enough seats to take over the House of Representatives.

Forty-four percent of registered voters say they would vote for a Democrat in their district if an election were held today. Just 37 percent said they would back a Republican.

And even in the best of times, this upcoming election would provide quite a challenge for the Republican Party. Larry Sabato of the University of Virginia recently explained why

Midterm elections for first-term presidents are historically ruinous for the party that controls the White House.

By Sabato’s analysis, the president’s party has shed House seats in 36 of 39 midterms stretching back more than 150 years, with an average loss of 33 seats — well above the 24 pickups the Democrats need to take the chamber next year.

If something happens 36 out of 39 times, there is a very good chance that it will happen the next time too.

So even if President Trump was exceedingly popular right now the Republican Party would have an uphill climb in 2018. But the fact that his approval ratings have fallen so precipitously definitely spells trouble…

President Donald Trump has watched his ratings decline for months, but on Wednesday two respected polls showed that only a third of American voters view him favorably — a new low less than 200 days into his presidency

A new Quinnipiac University Poll has the president’s approval rating falling to 33 percent, while Gallup shows it at 36 percent. Quinnipiac’s measurement is the lowest in the poll’s tracking of the Trump administration thus far, and Gallup’s is the lowest three-day average it has registered.

I fully support President Trump, but I have to admit that those are horrible numbers. Of course the mainstream media is treating him exceedingly unfairly, and that takes a toll. But hopefully he can eventually overcome the constant media onslaught and regain the level of popularity that he enjoyed back during the campaign.

If you dig even deeper into the Quinnipiac poll, you find some numbers about Trump that are deeply, deeply alarming

  • 54% said they were embarrassed to have him as president
  • 57% said they he was abusing the powers of his office
  • 60% said they believed he was above the law
  • 71% said Trump was not levelheaded
  • 62% said Trump was not honest
  • 63% said Trump did not have good leadership skills
  • 59% said he did not care about average Americans
  • 63% said he did not share their values

President Trump cannot fight this battle alone. So many conservatives out there decided that their job was done once Trump won the election, but the truth is that the battle is just getting started.

Right now, Democrats are raising millions upon millions of dollars for the mid-term elections and the liberal base is extremely energized.

If we do not match their enthusiasm and energy we are going to be facing a historic defeat.

And if the Democrats are able to take control of both the Senate and the House in 2018, it will just be a matter of time before Trump is impeached.

We desperately need to get Trump more friends in Congress, and so I am hoping that you all will stand with me and other pro-Trump candidates that are running for federal offices in 2018. In my new book entitled “Living A Life That Really Matters”, I explain what I hope to do once I am elected, and one of the things I hope to do is to put an end to the ridiculous investigations that are keeping Trump from being an effective president.

We have a once in a generation opportunity to fundamentally change the direction of this country, but if the Democrats take back control of Congress in 2018 that door will be slammed shut.

So hopefully we can get conservatives to awaken out of their slumber, because if nothing dramatically changes between now and the 2018 mid-term elections, the Democrats will likely win a huge victory and Nancy Pelosi will likely once again become the Speaker of the House.

as hard is it is to fathom it might be able to be even worse ;

 Dem activist vows Maxine Waters will be next House speaker

my 2¢ = given Rs aren't in the least interested in the concept of REPEAL by it's actual meaning or restoring constitutional integrity to fed/gov --  " What difference at this point does it make?"

...probably lesser of the two evils,.....but not by much.

OMG.........the dimwit who must have dementia?  When she talks about Trump she keeps calling him Bush, and when she talks about Mike Pence she calls him Putin.  She doesn't even know which end her brains are in....

The GOP had better inform the Public that it was the DEMOCRATS that gave them Obama Care... not one single vote came from the Republicans. The Democrats own the ACA and they are the ones keeping it from being repealed.

It is the Democrats that are blocking a clean repeal of Obama Care... Not one Democrat voted to repeal or replace, Obama care.  If two Democrats had voted to repeal this last vote... it would have passed.  But we know not one Democrat voted to repeal Obama Care.  The Democrats are obstructing the repeal of the ACA.  

So, who's at fault here?  the GOP?  Some one is smoking something and it isn't legal... Only, the MSM could get something so twisted up and turned upside down.  If the Democrats gave us the ACA and they will not vote to repeal or replace it ... and 95% of the GOP is willing to repeal... whose at fault?  The GOP? Only the insane would come to that conclusion.

correct me if I'm wrong Col.  -- but wasn't the 'repeal' vote you're referring to the bastardized definition of repeal? if so, that wasn't a vote to repeal. it was a vote to give the Rs two more years to pass their own fed/gov ruled healthcare system. Two more years to continue being inept and continue using healthcare as their primary campaign narrative.

as far as I understand there hasn't been a vote for the actual meaning of repeal since obie was sure to not sign it. The deception of calling what was recently voted on a 'repeal' is indeed the Rs' doings, and so is their refusal to even allow an actual repeal bill to come to a vote.

it ain't all the Ds doings at all

I don't actually know what was in the final bill to 'repeal'... I thought it repealed all of the ACA possible in one bill...  seems that there are other places in the law that harbor portions of the ACA.. .making a clean repeal difficult if not impossible.  The idea was to repeal as much as possible and then provide for a 2yr phase in of the repeal while Congress acted to find other means to help Americans obtain health care...

In any event, the Dem's own the ACA and they also own the defeat of the GOP's efforts to repeal it.  One can not blame the GOP for 3 RINO's failing to vote for the repeal, when not one Democrat voted to repeal.

it just wasn't a repeal bill at all;

VERB
repeals (third person present) · repealed (past tense) · repealed (past participle) · repealing (present participle)
  1. revoke or annul (a law or congressional act):
    "the legislation was repealed five months later"
    synonyms: revoke · rescind · cancel · reverse · annul · nullify ·
    [more]
    declare null and void · quash · abolish · vacate · abrogate · recall
    antonyms: enact
NOUN
repeals (plural noun)
  1. the action of revoking or annulling a law or congressional act:
    "the House voted in favor of repeal"
    synonyms: revocation · rescinding · cancellation · reversal · annulment ·
    [more]

what they were doing doesn't come close to that definition.
and I don't buy that 'impossible' crap at all. it's claiming that politics as it is now is more reality than reality itself. Justifying continuing the healthcare narrative that has profited R party tremendously for the past 8 years.

9thA

I don't buy it either...  

I believe a single bill to repeal is possible... what I attempted to do was explain how the GOP leadership presented the bill as a repeal... phased in ... repealing as much as they claimed was possible in a single bill.

Again, I agree with you... none of the bills were clean repeals.  I also don't buy into the argument that it will take several bills to repeal all of the ACA... One bill can cover it all.  The Bastards are simply LYING thru their eye teeth... and we all know it... or should know it.

ALERT ALERT

Hillary Clinton Was Not Formally Under
FBI Investigation At Any Time In 2015-2016

On Tuesday, Inspector General Michael Horowitz testified in a joint Congressional hearing to the House Oversight and House Judiciary panels about his review of the FBI’s (mis)handling of the Clinton email investigation.

House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) came out swinging Tuesday in a a joint hearing held by the House Oversight and House Judiciary Committees.

Gowdy ripped into Comey in his opening statement, stating, “we can’t survive with a justice system we don’t trust.”

Investigative journalist Paul Sperry reported Horowitz dropped a bombshell in his testimony.

Horowitz revealed the FBI never named a target or even a subject in the Clinton email probe!

Sperry tweeted: BREAKING: IG Horowitz revealed in Senate testimony FBI never named a target or even subject in Clinton probe. Not Mills, Abedin, Combetta or Clinton herself. “Nobody was listed as a subject of this investigation at any point in time,” adding this was “surprising” for a crim probe

BREAKING: IG Horowitz revealed in Senate testimony FBI never named a target or even subject in Clinton probe. Not Mills, Abedin, Combetta or Clinton herself. "Nobody was listed as a subject of this investigation at any point in time," adding this was "surprising" for a crim probe

So neither Hillary nor her top aides were formally under investigation by the FBI at any time in 2015-2016, tweeted Sperry.

BREAKING: Horowitz revealed that Hillary was never really under formal investigation, never listed by FBI as a "subject" of investigation.

President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton reacted to this bombshell bias from the FBI.

Tom Fitton  @TomFitton

.@RealDonaldTrump is a subject, but Hillary Clinton was never a "subject." Outrageous. Shut the Strzok-Page-Comey-McCabe-Lynch-Yates-Glenn Simpson-Steele-Brennan-Fusion GPS-Muller special counsel "stop @realDonaldTrump" investigation down.

tigation’ into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server was a complete sham.

No subjects were named, immunity was handed out like candy and Hillary was exonerated before witnesses were interviewed, including Hillary Clinton herself.

Hillary Clinton’s ‘interview’ with the FBI wasn’t even under oath.

Even more egregious, Hillary discussed pregnancy and babies during the majority of the 2.5 hour FBI interview because one of her lawyers was pregnant at the time.

Inspector General Horowitz also testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee Monday.

TEA PARTY TARGET

Targeting Of Tea Party Groups
John McCain’s Staff Director Urged Lois Lerner
And IRS To Engage In “Financially Ruinous”

Conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch obtained IRS documents Thursday revealing backstabber Senator John McCain’s former staff director urged the IRS, including the corrupt Lois Lerner to engage in “financially ruinous” targeting of conservative Tea Party groups.

And they did.

The IRS Conservative Targeting Scandal involved:

  • Hundreds of conservative groups were targeted
  • At least 5 pro-Israel groups
  • Constitutional groups
  • Groups that criticized Obama administration
  • At least two pro-life groups
  • An 83 year-old Nazi concentration camp survivor
  • A 180 year-old Baptist paper
  • A Texas voting-rights group
  • A Hollywood conservative group was targeted and harassed
  • Conservative activists and businesses
  • At least one conservative Hispanic group
  • IRS continued to target groups even after the scandal was exposed
  • And… 100% of the 501(c)(4) Groups Audited by IRS Were
  • Conservative

Now this…

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.” Kerner was appointed by President Trump as Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel.

The explosive exchange was contained in notes taken by IRS employees at an April 30, 2013, meeting between Kerner, Lerner, and other high-ranking IRS officials. Just ten days following the meeting, former IRS director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner admitted that the IRS had a policy of improperly and deliberately delaying applications for tax-exempt status from conservative non-profit groups.

Lerner and other IRS officials met with select top staffers from the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee in a “marathon” meeting to discuss concerns raised by both Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) that the IRS was not reining in political advocacy groups in response to the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. Senator McCain had been the chief sponsor of the McCain-Feingold Act and called the Citizens United decision, which overturned portions of the Act, one of the “worst decisions I have ever seen.”

In the full notes of an April 30 meeting, McCain’s high-ranking staffer Kerner recommends harassing non-profit groups until they are unable to continue operating. Kerner tells Lerner, Steve Miller, then chief of staff to IRS commissioner, Nikole Flax, and other IRS officials, “Maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous.” In response, Lerner responded that “it is her job to oversee it all:”

Henry Kerner asked how to get to the abuse of organizations claiming section 501 (c)(4) but designed to be primarily political. Lois Lerner said the system works, but not in real time. Henry Kerner noted that these organizations don’t disclose donors. Lois Lerner said that if they don’t meet the requirements, we can come in and revoke, but it doesn’t happen timely. Nan Marks said if the concern is that organizations engaging in this activity don’t disclose donors, then the system doesn’t work. Henry Kerner said that maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous. Nikole noted that we have budget constraints. Elise Bean suggested using the list of organizations that made independent expenditures. Lois Lerner said that it is her job to oversee it all, not just political campaign activity.

President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton had this to say about the newly obtained IRS documents showing more proof the agency was weaponized under Obama:

“The Obama IRS scandal is bipartisan – McCain and Democrats who wanted to regulate political speech lost at the Supreme Court, so they sought to use the IRS to harass innocent Americans. The Obama IRS scandal is not over – as Judicial Watch continues to uncover smoking gun documents that raise questions about how the Obama administration weaponized the IRS, the FEC, FBI, and DOJ to target the First Amendment rights of Americans.”
