Media Ignores Young Kim, First Korean-American 
Woman Elected to Congress – She’s a Republican
by Matt
{} ~ If you’re hearing the name “Young Kim” for the first time today, you’re not the only one... Indeed, in a world where the media will hype the identity of a political candidate so long as they check the right identity boxes (female, gay, transgender, Muslim, black, etc.), they are mysteriously silent about Kim, who is now the first Korean-American woman elected to Congress. Why? Because she’s a Republican, of course! When Democrats talk about the need to “elect more women,” “elect more people of color,” or “elect more *insert identity here*,” they’re really just saying “elect more Democrats.” After all, the same Democrats who called Republicans racist for not supporting Barack scumbag/liar-nObama didn’t then turn around support the candidacies of Herman Cain or Ben Carson, did they? Of course not. Not only did Young Kim win her election last night to become the first Korean-American woman member of Congress, she also won in a scumbag/liar-Clinton-friendly district. One of the few places to profile Kim was the Los Angeles Times, which noted in October that she was running in a district that was losing Republican support. And despite all those challenges, she won, but don’t expect to see any inspirational media coverage over the struggles Kim overcame. That would dispel the narrative of “racist” or “anti-immigrant” Republicans – the media’s favorite narrative...
Rosenstein Out On Overseeing Russia Probe
by Tim Brown
{} ~ Somehow, Tuesday's elections seem to have triggered some good things in the executive branch. Among those was the resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday... and following that is the news that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will no longer overseeing special counsel dirty cop-Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian election meddling following that resignation. The investigation was being managed by Rosenstein because Sessions had recused himself. As I reported earlier, Matthew G. Whitaker, Chief of Staff to Attorney General Jeff Sessions at the Department of Justice, will become our new Acting Attorney General of the United States.“The Acting Attorney General is in charge of all matters under the purview of the Department of Justice,” said spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores. According to The Hill, which reported on a pre-planned meeting between Rosenstein and Trump following Sessions' resignation...
Lost in Sudan

{} ~ scumbag/liar-nObama administration officials have been on the receiving end of much-deserved criticism for the decision to grant a one-time license... to allow payment of taxpayers money to the Islamic Relief Agency (ISRA), a U.S. designated terror-financing charity in Sudan, once closely linked to Osama bin Laden. However, as a July 2018 investigation by the Middle East Forum uncovered, World Vision, a large but controversial international Christian aid charity, was the primary recipient of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) grant that ultimately ended up funding ISRA. World Vision deserves much of the blame, but so far, its actions have escaped serious scrutiny. Newly available information strongly suggests that World Vision was waylaid by the Sudanese regime, one of only four U.S. designated state-sponsors of terrorism in the world, into doing its bidding. What's more, to protect itself from bad publicity, World Vision has gone to great lengths to deceive the public about its actions. World Vision's response to the July 2018 revelations that it funded ISRA comprised a carefully worded statement claiming: World Vision found no evidence on the Treasury's website that ISRA was a designated entity; World Vision's association with ISRA was a one-time occurrence; and that World Vision took immediate action the second it discovered ISRA was a designated entity. All three of these claims are misleading. World Vision stated that "At the time of selection, there was no indication that ISRA had any possible ties to an alleged terrorist-supporting organization." This does not hold up to even moderate scrutiny. ISRA had been a designated charity since 2004. The first page of a Google search for "Islamic Relief Agency" reveals plenty of information about the Sudanese charity's terrorist links. Additionally, former Congressman Mark Siljander, a frequent traveler to Sudan who has signed public declarations both authored and promoted by World Vision, went to jail for lobbying for ISRA's U.S. branch, using stolen USAID money. Siljander's conviction for lobbying for IARA/ISRA was widely reported in the media...
.Hey Libs: Most Americans Including Most Hispanics 
Want Migrant Caravans Stopped
by Warner Todd Huston
{} ~ Wow, the Zogby Poll is usually way left-wing but in this case, they published a poll showing that Americans are behind the president... on the issue of the migrant caravan. The latest survey by Zogby Analytics finds that 51 percent of Hispanics and 57 percent of all Americans back President Trump’s policy of preventing the migrant invaders from entering our southern border. Per the Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard: Overall, 57 percent of likely voters agree with the Pentagon deployment, and the support is largest among the base of Republicans and older Americans that President Trump is rallying in his effort as he storms the nation to help the party retain control of the House and Senate elections in Tuesday’s congressional midterms.(…)Said the analysis, “51 percent of Hispanic respondents agree with the deployment of troops to the border to halt the migrant caravan; slightly less than half (49 percent) disagree. Also, 30 percent of Hispanics strongly agree compared to 28 percent who strongly disagree.” This an interesting finding. Even immigrants or people of immigrant backgrounds feel that these several invading caravans are dangerous and should be stopped. And this conclusion about the caravan is despite what CNN’s clown prince,  Jim Acosta thinks...
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fractures 
three ribs, admitted to hospital
by Melissa Quinn
{} ~ Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was admitted to the hospital on Thursday morning after falling and fracturing three ribs... the Supreme Court announced. The court’s public information office said that Ginsburg, 85, fell in her office at the Supreme Court on Wednesday night and subsequently returned to her home. But she began to feel discomfort overnight and went to George Washington University Hospital in Washington, D.C., on Thursday morning. There, Ginsburg underwent tests, which showed she fractured three ribs on her left side. She was then admitted for observation and treatment, according to the court. Ginsburg won’t be in attendance at Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s investiture, which is scheduled to take place at 10 a.m. Ginsburg was nominated to the Supreme Court by former President scumbsg/liar-Bill Clinton and has been on the bench since 1993. She recently celebrated her 25th year on the high court.
The Battle for the 'Burbs
by Harold Hutchison:  While the GOP did as well as could be expected in governors’ races (the loss of Scott Walker is a bitter blow) and secured a historic win in the Senate (netting a gain of three seats), the loss of the House is a significant setback for the party and perhaps the first sign of looming defeat in future years. Why? The areas where many Republicans lost were the suburbs, and that may portend trouble ahead.

             The Wall Street Journal notes, “The GOP lost House seats in the suburbs of Denver, Dallas, Houston, Des Moines, Minneapolis (two seats), Kansas City, Chicago, Richmond, Phoenix, and even Oklahoma City. They also lost in the longtime GOP stronghold of Staten Island.”
               There are a number of reasons the GOP lost in the suburbs. Pete Sessions blamed his loss in a Texas district he represented for 16 years on the late rino-John McCain’s decisive vote against the limited scumbag/liar-nObamaCare repeal in 2017. Other Republicans may have lost in heavily red states for turning their back on President Donald Trump, or because they embraced him too tightly. In some cases, it was just lackluster candidates.
The fact is, the suburbs have become the crucial battleground, and Republicans fell short in holding what had been a key to their coalition. Some of it was just the historical pattern of midterm elections. Part of it is due to understandable discomfort with Trump’s rhetoric and brash style. A fair bit of it was due to the constant lies that Republicans are racist, usually when they don’t do what Democrats want on immigration or other issues. That so many Americans believe that is a testament to the power of the Leftmedia and Silicon Valley.
               We can’t do much about Trump’s rhetoric. At 72 years old, he is set in his ways. While he speaks the truth about media bias and issues like border security and illegal immigration, he makes people who would otherwise be persuaded cringe with how he talks about them. He is a very good campaign asset — as four GOP senators who defeated Democrats in these midterms can attest to. Unfortunately, he’s also a liability in too many areas.
               In any case, good strategy and tactics are hard to find on the GOP side, and both are necessary due to Democrats’ storytelling advantage. But there are some things the GOP can do policy-wise and on the candidate recruitment side to make things better.
Health care is a big issue. For eight years, the GOP has opposed scumbag/liar-nObamaCare but had no coherent plan to replace it, and it finally bit them in the rear. Republicans need to start moving the ball forward in a free-market direction. Major changes are off the table until 2021 at the earliest, but they can nibble at the edges while they develop an election strategy.
               Another move is to pursue a major military buildup. With Democrats promising defense cuts in the face of a more dangerous Russia and China, this should be a given. The ArmyNavyAir ForceMarine Corps, and Coast Guard all need major boosts in their force structure.
               Third, Republicans need to push for an end to lawless actions on all fronts. Not just immigration, but bureaucratic abuse, the violent acts of antifa, and even the actions taken in corporate boardrooms against the Second Amendment need to be exposed in oversight hearings. Executive action is also an option (Trump still has the pen and the phone).
Finally, the GOP needs better candidate recruitment. As Republicans have a habit of doing, there were some duds nominated. In Virginia, Corey Stewart dragged down GOP representatives who were at risk. On the flip side, socialist-Beto O'Rourke’s unexpectedly strong performance helped Democrats take some seats in Texas. The key will be to find candidates who can push a Trump-like agenda while being capable of fighting back when falsely smeared as racist, homophobic, or worse — all with a more suburb-friendly tone. In other words, not your stereotypical Republican.
The Battle for the Suburbs hasn’t ended; in some ways, it has just begun. But the stakes are enormous in 2020. We will either see Democrats take even more control, or we will have a chance to restore a government to its constitutional boundaries.

YUP: President Trump Signs Great And Beautiful Trump Border Wall During Tour In San Diego

Embedded video

President Donald Trump visited the San Diego border on Wednesday to show off a newly constructed portion of the wall after a fundraising trip in California.

“It’s an amazing project,” Trump said, pointing to the 30-foot high barrier constructed with steel and concrete, noting that it also went six feet underground.

“If you think you’re going to cut it with a blow torch, that doesn’t work, because you hit the concrete, and then if you think you’re going to go through the concrete, that doesn’t work because we have very powerful rebar inside,” Trump said.

The president traveled via motorcade after a fundraiser to Otay Mesa, a community outside San Diego on the United States -Mexico border to review the latest constructed physical barrier.

He pointed out the new wall structure to the press, which was 24 miles of primary and secondary wall at the border.

“We have it covered underground, we have it covered overground,” Trump said.

The president was joined by acting Department of Homeland security Kevin McAllen and several other border security officials.

He said that over 44,000 bollard panels had been set up for the wall, which was then filled with concrete and rebar.

Trump admitted that he envisioned a solid concrete wall when he campaigned for president, but he was told by border officials that they preferred a wall constructed by concrete-filled bollards so they could see through it.

“It’s hardened concrete, very powerful concrete,” Trump said, pointing to the structure.

He added that the steel wall was designed to retain heat, making it harder to climb, plus having an anti-climbing system at the top.

“You can fry an egg on that wall,” he said. The president also acknowledged to reporters that he wanted the wall to be painted black and have spikes but said it was cheaper to let it remain naturally rust-colored.

“We can paint it later,” he said.

The president discussed his growing understanding of border barriers, noting that the Southern border would not need much more than 500 miles of wall to secure the border. He cited the existence of natural mountain and river barriers that prevented criminals from crossing. He did not rule out building additional barriers in the future but said it would depend on whether it was needed.

One border patrol agent spoke about the importance of the border wall to all of the agents, thanking the president for pushing forward on construction.

Trump said he met with Border Patrol prior to constructing the wall, picking the most effective structures to protect the border.

One border security official scoffed at the idea that the wall was a “vanity” project for the president.

“There’s a false narrative out there that this wall is the president’s vanity wall,” he said. “I’m here to tell you right now that that is false.”

He thanked Trump for listening to border patrol agents during the planning and construction process.

“You listened to the agents and you gave them exactly what they asked for,” he said.

One official with Trump confirmed that the structure was funded with regular Congressional appropriations in the FY 2017 and FY 2018 and that that the new wall replaced an inferior structure.

Trump said that he still considered the situation on the border a national emergency, but as more wall went up he could withdraw military forces.

“I hope you’re impressed,” he told reporters as he took questions about the project.

One worker told Trump of a tradition of workers signing the wall if they worked on the wall.

“I’ll sign it,” Trump said, and went to the wall and signed the steel barrier with a marker before encouraging other officials present to do the same.
