Let’s Make a Deal


F. H. Buckley has a post at the NY Post on how President Trump and the incoming Democrat-led House could work together for their mutual benefit. He points out that the last two Democrats in the White House faced Republican-led Houses. Clinton worked cooperatively and got results such as welfare reform. Obama didn’t and got gridlock.

Those are deals to be made, and the question is whether Democrats in Congress will go along. If they do, they’ll give voters a reason to re-elect both them and Trump in 2020.

If they don’t — if they, say, rush to impeach instead — they’ll prove that they’re not to be taken seriously and will give voters a reason to re-elect Trump in 2020. For Trump, it’s win-win.

I’m betting on gridlock—with comic relief from the likes of She Guevara.

Fasten your seat belts.

Democrats Win Control Of The House As #MeToo Loses


She Guevara will be going to the House of Representatives to provide comic relief, and as of 6:30 am ET, the Democrats have flipped at least one more seat than they need to take control of the House. They’ll use the coming two years of divided government to be as disruptive as possible.

Meanwhile, the #MeToo movement has suffered two serious setbacks.

First, as Jim Geraghty put it, “Once again, Keith Ellison beat someone.” Over a million Democrats voted for him to be the Attorney General of Minnesota, refusing to believe a woman whose claims of abuse were backed up by evidence.

Second, as of 6:30 am ET, the only Democrat senator who faced a serious challenge to reelection and who has won was Manchin—who was the only one who voted for the Kavanaugh nomination. Donnelly, Heitkamp, McCaskill, and Nelson have bitten the dust in Indiana, North Dakota, Missouri, and Florida, and Tester is behind in Montana. Political movements that can’t deliver votes have little clout. Those that are a liability on election day have none.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


The Dread Deadbeat Protector Kimberlin claims that he and a group of hackers were working with the Departments of Justice and of Homeland Security on protecting the integrity of the 2016 elections. In a 25 September post on the protectourelections dot org webseite, he made a similar claim about his not-for-profit Protect Our Elections/EMPR Inc.: “Since March of 2016, we have also provided significant information about this to the Department of Justice.”

As the TKPOTD from two years ago today shows, Kimberlin was blogging at the older velvetrevolution dot us site up until just before the election. This year, the POE site went quiet after 20 October.

Wow! The times they are a changin’! During the last couple of elections, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin was offering a reward of “up to” $100,000 for evidence of vote fraud. Now, it seems that we no longer need to worry.vrus20161106Kimberlin must believe that his crack team of hackerz has got things covered this year.

TDPK must have thought that his gang of hackers had got the elections properly secured because this year’s “$100k” reward wasn’t for information about electron fraud. This year, TDPK was trying to buy evidence against Brett Kavanaugh.

Election Day


Here’s my fearless forecast for the election results: Other than Larry Hogan being reelected as Governor of Maryland, your guess is as good as mine on any of the races attracting national attention. That includes the balance of power in the House of Representatives.

Go vote.

UPDATE—All the cool kids get a sticker.
