Clutching at Straws

The democrats and the media (IBID) have been trying to put forth the illusion of a united front despite deep divisions between the DC elite and the outspoken and violent class of ‘progressives’ that follow full-blown socialists like the Berniecrats.

There have been a number of special elections since the coup d’etat administered by one Donald J. Trump.  They poured tens of millions of dollars into trying to show they’re still relevant.  Up until now they’ve come up empty and heartbroken.

They finally managed to flip 2 seats in statewide races and now feel like they’re on a roll. Nothing can stop them now. The future is theirs. The House will be back in their clutches after the midterms. How glorious it will be when San Fran Nan gets that big-ass gavel back so she and her homies can stop Trump’s efforts to strengthen America and put people back to work.

FROM HUFFPO … FOR WHATEVER THAT’S WORTH

Democrats Just Flipped Seats In 2 Districts That Voted For Donald Trump

Two districts that voted for Donald Trump in last year’s presidential election selected Democrats for state legislature seats in New York and New Hampshire on Tuesday night.

NY Democrat Christine Pellegrino defeated Republican Thomas Gargiulo in a special election in a Long Island, New York, State Assembly district that Trump won by 23 percent.  Pellegrino served as a delegate for Bernie Sanders at the Democratic National Convention last year.

NH Democrat Edith DesMarais won a special election for a seat in New Hampshire’s GOP-controlled House of Representatives.  Trump won that district by 7 points.

REPUBLICANS GIVE UP THEIR SEATS WHEN THEY MOVE ON TO OTHER POSITIONS. DEMOCRATS GIVE UP THEIR SEATS ONLY AFTER THEY’RE CONVICTED OF FELONIES. THEY’RE SCARCELY QUALIFIED TO DO ANYTHING ELSE.

The Democrats Think They’ll Ride a Wave in 2018

RUSH: Here’s the headline: “Is a Wave Election Forming for Democrats? — Democrats are increasingly bullish about the prospect of a wave election in 2018 amid backlash against the House Republicans for repealing Obamacare.” And, of course, all the mess with Trump. Now, it’s true to say, is it not, that practically every election the Democrats think that they’re gonna win it in a landslide?

The stakes will be even higher in two upcoming special elections for the U.S. House of Representatives. Democrat Rob Quist is hoping for an upset win over Republican Greg Gianforte in a race for Montana’s sole house seat later this week, while in Georgia, Republican Karen Handel aims to keep her district red in a race against Democrat Jon Ossoff next month.

Republicans Becoming More Worried About Montana Congressional Race
THIS CLOWN IS A REAL PIECE OF WORK. PLAYS GUITAR AT A NUDIST CAMP, FALSELY CLAIMS TO BE A VETERAN. SOROS DOUBTLESSLY DUMPING MILLIONS IN HIS COFFERS.

But some are questioning whether Trump’s decreasing popularity amid the ongoing investigation into links between his campaign and Russian officials could affect the election.

In a recent story about Gianforte’s campaign strategy, the New York Times wrote, “And voting day, which is May 25, will be watched nationally for any signs that Mr. Trump, his tactics, or his style of politics are wearing thin with voters who overwhelmingly supported him in November.”

Questions Continue to Swell: No Record That Rob Quist Registered for Selective Service Says National Archives

The Montana Democrat turned 18 during Vietnam War, opposed it as a college student.

It is unlikely that Quist would have been able to acquire a medical deferment as he played basketball at the University of Montana. He would have been eligible for a student deferment as a college student, though he dropped out after starting a band.

Quist’s Republican opponent Greg Gianforte registered with the Selective Service System in 1980, according to records viewed by the Washington Free Beacon.

Dem IT aides suspected of major security breach escape to Pakistan

Democrat IT specialists are accused of stealing equipment from members’ offices without their knowledge and committing serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network.

Many of the Democrats who employed the Awans are members of the House Committee on Homeland Security, the Committee on Foreign Affairs and the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

They had access to members’ emails and confidential files. In addition, one was given the password for an iPad used by then-Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Florida Democrat.

The five came to the U.S. from Pakistan and have fled there to avoid prosecution.

[CtH; I have often wondered that too.  Wikipedia says Steny is a variant of his Danish father’s name, “Steen.”  A baby name site says Steen is a Nordic first name.]

    Wasserman Schultz Threatened Police Chief For Gathering Evidence On Her IT Staffer’s Alleged Crimes

    Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz threatened the chief of the U.S. Capitol Police with “consequences” for holding equipment that she says belongs to her in order to build a criminal case against a Pakistani staffer suspected of massive cybersecurity breaches involving funneling sensitive congressional data offsite.

    The Florida lawmaker used her position on the committee that sets the police force’s budget to press its chief to relinquish the piece of evidence Thursday, in what could be considered using her authority to attempt to interfere with a criminal investigation.
