10 Races Could Determine Who Controls the House After Midterms


 Doesn't look like a blue wave to me.

With six days and a few hours until the polls open for the 2018 midterm elections, control of the House of Representatives is now down to ten key races.

The battle between Republicans and Democrats for the majority is so tight, it may come to just a handful of districts across the country. These ten districts represent some of the closest battleground races for control of the House majority.

Ten toss-up races remain, down from the 20 identified by Breitbart News on October 19.

The ten remaining toss-up races are:

‘This is the blue-collar, middle-class Trump Economy’


As Larry Kudlow sat with President Donald J. Trump and Ivanka Trump in the White House State Dining Room, he revealed a telling fact about the new American economy under the Trump Administration.

“We are looking at blue-collar wage increases [that] are rising faster than white-collars,” said Kudlow, Director of President Trump’s National Economic Council. “Now, I’m not against white collars, but I’m saying this is the blue-collar, middle-class Trump Economy”—one where manufacturing and other industries that fuel prosperity in America’s heartland are thriving once again.

Trump’s Winning Demeanor

Via John

The problem with all the advice to the president urging him to change his demeanor is that it is given for the wrong reason and at the wrong time.

As I have often recounted, since Donald Trump attacks the entire political system and almost everyone in or near it in both parties (including former presidents), it was never going to be possible for him to lower the ferocity of his barrages until it was clear how successful his effort to dislodge or reorient the entire political establishment had been.

Michelle Malkin: Yes, OF COURSE Unvetted Illegal Caravans Threaten Public Health!

Via Reborn


We live in bizarro times. Suddenly, it is controversial to state obvious, neon-bright truths. This week, it has become newsworthy to observe that illegal border-crossers who circumvent required medical screenings are a threat to America's public health and safety.

Just look at these hyperventilating headlines and tweets.

Miles Of Razor Wire, 5,200 Soldiers Deployed To Southwest Border

“We have enough concertina wire to cover up to 22 miles already deployed to the border. We have additional concertina wire that we can string, with over 150 miles available. Additionally, looking at where the reinforcers are needed so we can get it exactly where CBP wants us to put it.
We’re also bringing three highly experienced and capable combat engineering battalions with expertise in building temporary vehicle barriers, fencing — and we’re bringing them in with heavy equipment which, as we speak right now, is line-hauling towards Texas.
We’re bringing military planning teams that are already actively engaged with their CBP counterparts…We’re bringing three medium-lift helicopter companies in. These are aircraft equipped with the latest technology. They’re enhanced with optics. They have NVGs (night-vision goggles). They have sensors that will allow them to operate at night and be able to provide assistance to bring our CBP personnel exactly where they need to be, regardless of the conditions.
We’ll be able to spot-identify groups and rapidly deploy CBP personnel where they’re needed.
The helicopters will ensure the CBP agents can arrive in the most austere locations. They can fast-rope down if they need to. They can conduct and work their law enforcement activities. These aircraft will also ensure those agents needing medical assistance will be able to get that assistance when required.
In addition, we’re bringing military police units. We’re bringing strategic airlift to bear. As we sit right now, we have three C-130s and a C-17 that is ready to deploy CBP personnel wherever they need to be at any time.
We have deployable medical units. We have the logistical support. We have command posts. We’re bringing, again, command posts so we can combine with CBP, and we have combined command posts where our operational commanders will be working side-by-side to integrate our efforts.”

From Founding Fathers to Fire Eaters
A review of From Founding Fathers to Fire-Eaters: The Constitutional Doctrine of States’ Rights in the Old South (Columbia, SC: Shotwell Publishing, 2018) by James Rutledge Roesch.

Mr. James Rutledge Roesch is doing God’s work with the publication of his book, From Founding Fathers to Fire-Eaters: The Constitutional Doctrine of States’ Rights in the Old South.  Riding to the sound of the cannon, Mr. Roesch has charged straight into the fire of the court historians, the apologists for the deep state left, and has scattered their neo-abolitionists nostrums to the winds.  And he has done so in a style that is accessible to the lay reader, and with evidence that the scholar ignores at his peril.  In order to appreciate the importance of this work, a bit of historiography is in order.More @

Brett Kavanaugh Turns Down Over $600K Raised By GoFundMe Page

 Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh testified in front of the Senate Judiciary committee regarding sexual assault allegations at the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill Thursday, September 27, 2018.

On Tuesday, it was reported that Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh declined over $600,000 that had been raised for him and his family after the brutal treatment of Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearings.

Kavanaugh cited judicial ethics concerns as he turned the generous offer down, stating that he appreciated the sentiment but ethics rules precluded him accepting the funds. Travis Lenkner, a former clerk of Kavanaugh’s, sent the statement from Kavanaugh ten days ago, but John Hawkins, the well-known conservative who organized the GoFundMe campaign, said he didn’t publish the letter immediately because he needed time to arrange an alternative destination for the funds.
Kavanaugh’s statement read:

This letter to the editor of the Times News in Hendersonville NC by Dick Kranker was published on October 29. 

With the upcoming mid-term elections and, in fact all elections, as a patriotic American, I urge everyone to please keep the following in mind:

IF:  You like mob rule, vote Democrat; Like uncivil society? Vote Democrat; Excessive regulation of commerce? Vote Democrat; Being judged by your color, gender, ethnicity? Vote Democrat; Anti-religion? Vote Democrat; High taxes to support Socialism? Vote Democrat; High crime? (9 of 10 highest crime cities are Democrat run) Vote Democrat; Open borders? Vote Democrat; The presumption of guilt rather than innocence?  Vote Democrat; You approve of elected officials urging supporters to “get in the face” of political opponents? Vote Democrat; Open displays of disrespect for the flag and the National Anthem? Vote Democrat; Oppose the Second Amendment? Vote Democrat; Want big states to control small states and oppose the Constitutionally mandated Electoral College; Vote Democrat.

But, if you abhor the degradation of traditional American values; Still believe in American  Exceptionalism  and particularly do not approve of any of the forgoing reasons for voting Democrat, by all means vote for those you think still support constitutionally conservative views and live up to their oath to protect and preserve our Constitution. Generally, these will be Republicans.

As a Limey hooched up over 4000 miles away even I am moved by this simple act, so thank you Mr. Becknell. And as a (long retired) soldier I am yet again taken by a quiet fury because as is now so often the case those who give or gave nothing choose to dishonor and try to destroy the memory of those gave their all; they are unfit to share living space with men and women who held and hold the meaning of service and sacrifice as a given, a way of life worth living for the sake of the future of all of us.

He stood on the campus green while the birds chirped in the trees, the same way they had that May morning when he left his books behind and marched away to war. The sunlight filtered down through the tree branches, warm Southern sun dappling the green grass with soft shadows. Through four long year, he'd marched through the snows and rains and parching summers....his boots gave out the first year, but still he marched on. Not much food. Sometimes at night he dreamed of his grandmother's chicken and dumplings set on the table, steam rising from them. And woke to gnaw on a piece of hardtack which was the only food he had left. His ribs were sticking out like those of an old mule he'd once seen that had run off from home and hid in the swamp til near starvation brought him home.

He'd been there that day in 1913, a quiet shadow, when the statue was dedicated. His Polly had been there, too.... a little birdlike woman still wearing her widow's black after 50 years. She was thin, too, painfully thin, and her black dress was carefully mended. She'd gone without a coat in winter, and skipped meals so she could send it pennies and nickles to build the statue. After all the crowd left, she moved hesitantly up to the statue and reached out her thin, wrinkled hand to touch it.... the hand that still wore the ring he'd put on her finger the week before he left for war. Her hand trembled and tears spilled from her pale blue eyes, milky with catracts now. Their reunion wouldn't be for several more years yet.

Now, he's come back to see the statue that's been torn down..... He's come in his ragged uniform, stained with the smoke of many battles. He's come barefoot as he marched and fought. He's come to see the place where this generation of North Carolinians has decided that he was evil and not worthy of a memorial.... where they tore the statue down with hate and violence and cursing and spitting. The silent ghost sheds a tear.

He looks across the campus green.....and hears the birds. And then he sees a young man, dressed as he is.... more solid than a ghost, but just as silent. He sees one lone man who has come to do him honor, dressed in a ragged uniform, barefoot.....

The silent ghost stands beside the silent man and looks at the statue that was built on love and sacrifice for men who died for love and sacrifice.

Do you see him? I do.....and I will NEVER forget.

(May God bless Casey Becknell who traveled to Chapel Hill dressed as a soldier to honor Silent Sam and whose picture inspired these words.)
