Winning Isn’t Enough

Republicans are excited about the midterm elections and have been since Joe Biden took office. Democrats are worried and are already throwing down the gauntlet as to what the country will look like under a split Congress at best. According to several Democrats, nothing will get done (usually not necessarily a bad thing!) and there will be more and more government shutdowns as Congress disagrees with itself as to what the spending priorities and amounts should be.

Five Thirty Eight has the Republicans winning the House of Representatives with a 70% likelihood. They have the Democrats maintaining control of the Senate with the same percentage.

So, if that’s the case, it’s not enough for the Republicans to play defense. They need to get on offense and tell the country exactly what they will do if they become the majority party in Congress. So far, Dems have been able to control the message, making Donald Trump the foe, and talking January 6th protest and abortion. They say the GOP is going to “take away” Social Security, which is a lie because all the GOP is doing is suggesting that Social Security be privatized as a way to maintain it past 2035 when it goes bankrupt. That’s really nothing more than investing in the stock market, something that every single person with a 401k account currently does.

But it’s not enough for the GOP to react to that. They need to come up with a plan on what they are going to do if elected to lead in the House. Democrats think the GOP will hold all sorts of hearings on Alejandro Mayorkas, Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, and the like. They will hold hearings on Critical Race Theory and Climate Change. They’ll tackle hearings on overspending. But that’s not enough. America needs answers, not hearings.

Here’s what I’d do if I were in charge…

First fix the friggin’ border. Finish the wall, hire 87,000 Border Patrol agents, not IRS agents. I’d defund that IRS plan in a heartbeat and send the money to fix the border. Then I would come up with a comprehensive immigration reform package that basically says who is allowed into this country, who isn’t, and what the punishment is, if you come in illegally for any reason.

Next up, we tackle over-spending. I’d get a Constitutional Amendment for a balanced budget. If Dems want to crank up the Bureau of Engraving’s printing presses 24/7, then they have to find a way to pay for it. That means raising taxes on everyone. If that’s done, you’ll see inflation come down.

I would also put the size of the Supreme Court into a Constitutional Amendment. It should be nine people. That’s what it’s been at for the majority of time the Supreme Court has been around. The Judiciary Act of 1869 states that the Supreme Court should have a Chief Justice and eight associate justices. It’s already federal law. It needs to be a Constitutional Amendment so Democrats (or Republicans) can’t pack the court.

I would make it a federal law that for the safety of the nation, all communities must hire and pay the wages of a police force and keep them trained. Not a token cop or two, but a force! Put more blue on the streets, and watch the crime rate decline.

Next up, I’d make it illegal to fund programs with questionable data, like Climate Change. It’s not that the climate isn’t changing. It’s that they keep changing the models saying humans are the cause of it and what the catastrophic results would be.

I would make it illegal for anyone in Congress to buy or sell stock, and the same goes for anyone in their families. You can’t hide behind your spouse’s trades anymore. We all know you’re giving them inside information! If Martha Stewart can go to jail for it, so can Nancy and Paul Pelosi. And yes, that would include Republicans that trade on it as well (there are a lot on each side of the aisle).

Finally, I would put term limits into effect. We have them for the President. We have them in 35 states. We should have them in Congress as well.

That should be enough to keep everyone busy for two years until we win back the White House and take control of the Senate!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

So, Would YOU Make This Trade?

I was reading a piece by Larry O’Connor this morning. All across the country, there is a move by Democrats hoping to make abortion the most talked about and most important issue this midterm election cycle. So far, the kitchen table items like inflation, the economy, and crime are winning out, and probably will. But O’Connor had an interesting take on all of it.

He would gladly trade a ban on abortions for losing the Senate this time around.

And it got me to thinking…how important IS abortion to the GOP? It’s been a half century or so that abortion was legal and relatively easy to obtain in this country. We are one of 70 countries in the world that had that ease. But, when the Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade with the Dobbs v. Jackson decision, stating instead of being a federal law, it needs to be sent to the states to decide (NOT making it illegal as Democrats claim), it gave the Dems a campaign issue.

So, the question is, would YOU make the trade of losing a chance to take over the Senate in 2022 if it means a ban on abortions (or at least a federal ban!)

I’m certainly pro-life and have a very difficult time understanding how a woman can decide to have an abortion and kill a life that’s growing inside of her. To me, it’s more of a religious thing, a moral and ethical thing than a “legal choice” that women make as far as what to do with their bodies. We’re not talking about getting a tattoo here. We’re talking about ending a life before it gets started. But would I end the Republicans’ chances to take over the Senate?

I don’t think I have to choose. I think both could very well still happen. But if forced to choose, I’m still not sure. I think of the damage a deranged idiot like Joe Biden can do by nominating justices to federal benches, only if he has the US Senate to confirm and they are on his side. God forbid we start losing people like Clarance Thomas on the Supreme Court! On the other side, and this is the point I can’t understand about Democrats who’s religion is politics…we are going to allow a lot of those fetuses that otherwise would have been aborted to live. Why Democrats wanted to chop their numbers down in the first place is beyond me. If there was no abortion, if we never aborted 63 million babies over the past 49 years, I think it’s safe to say the Democrats would never lose another election!

But still, if I HAD to choose, what would I do? I have wrangled this one around for a while. I think the sanctity of life is far more important than a two year possibility of Joe Biden using his mental deficiencies to nominate people. After all, what value to YOU put on human life? I guess to even have to wrangle it, I should be ashamed. But it is a difficult decision if you get right down to it.

What The Republicans Are Lacking

As we head down to the last six weeks prior to the midterms, it hit me that the Republicans certainly have a number issues on their side. But they are lacking one important thing.

They don’t have a positive message.

Think back to Ronald Reagan. After the catastrophe that was Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter’s presidential years, Reagan came out with a speech he had developed for General Electric years before. It was the “Morning in America” speech. It was positive. It was patriotic. It made you feel good about yourself and your country.

Now compare that to what we are looking at for a Republican message out there now. It’s basically, Joe Biden sucks (no argument there!), crime is through the roof, you’re paying too much because of inflation, our economy is in the toilet, we’ve got a supply chain problem that is still haunting us, and our southern border is leakier than a tin can with no bottom.

And Republicans have no ideas how to fix any of that other than to stop spending so much money on crappy ideas like climate change and electric vehicles.

What Republicans need is to tie the negatives together with their positive. They need a brand new Morning in America type of approach. Yes, crime sucks. Yes, you’re paying too much for stuff, and the economy is in the toilet because of overspending. Yes, you can’t buy formula for your baby still today, and yes, we’re allowing more and more illegals into the United States. But what are the Republicans going to do that is different?

What they need to do is come out and paint that patriotic picture of America that makes you feel good about going to the polls on November 8th. They need to give you hope. They need to bring forth a message that yes, Democrats have put us into this mess because they control Congress and the White House, but WE can fix it because we have solid ideas that are going to bring us back to positive territory.

They need to talk about how we’ve faced adversity before and come through it with tenacity and verve. We can certainly do it again, but we all have to pull together. We’ve seen that the current folks in power have had two years to get things done, and your life isn’t better off today than it was two or three years ago. And we can make it that way all over again. I’d stay away from Trump’s line of “Make America Great Again” because that feeds into the whole anti-MAGA thing. But it’s along those lines. Be proud to be an American. Be happy knowing that we have a way out of this. We’re going to fix immigration. We’re going to stop the overspending to lower the inflation rate, and boost the economy through the marketplace, not the federal government. We’re going to fix the supply chain that’s been torn apart and get store shelves stocked again.

To not have the positivity added to the current message of “The Democrats have screwed everything up”, is to avoid the chance to really make this a red wave!

Is Lindsey Graham Screwing The Pooch?

In case you missed it this past week, on Tuesday, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham introduced an abortion bill that would ban abortions after 15 weeks except for instances of rape, incest, and saving the life of the mother if she is in danger from a physical condition.

In short, Lindsey Graham is rubbing salt into an already gaping wound.

Graham did manage to get Joe Manchin on board by giving him the “exceptions” rule, but it seems to me that the last thing Republicans would want to do is take the Dobbs v. Jackson case, which already has ignited some of the Democrat base, and make it worse.

The GOP has traditionally been pro-life, which is fine, but they’ve also believed in states’ rights, which is what Dobbs did. It didn’t outlaw abortion, it only sent it back to the states to decide the issue because the Constitution says that if the federal government isn’t given express authority to do something, or if the states are expressly prohibited from doing something, the states have the right to rule on it. That’s what the whole abortion thing was about in Dobbs v. Jackson.

Graham didn’t need to introduce a law, because it flies in the face of the Supreme Court ruling, much like “codifying” abortion like what the Dems want to do. Both are futile efforts to take something that doesn’t belong at the federal level, and shoe-horn it into federal law. Neither would be constitutional.

And why someone that is typically as smart as Graham, would be so addle-minded as to hand over yet another campaign issue to the Democrats during a midterm season that should be a giant red wave is undeniably stupid.

What’s amazing here, is that the bill has no chance of getting through the US Senate, much less the House. First of all, both houses of Congress have so much on their plate that needs to be done this fall that it’s insane to think they have the time and the inclination to tackle something that’s already been decided by the Supreme Court. Why not spend the time on issues that they CAN make a difference on. What about doing something about energy production? What about tackling the immigration reform issue and solving the crisis at the southern border? This is just crazy that Congress is so out of touch with the American people and their needs that they don’t even have a clue what bills to introduce!

Sorry, Lindsey, if that’s the best you can do, you need to retire and have South Carolina elect somebody more like Tim Scott than you!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

But Is It Too Little Too Late?

Democrats are scurrying. Not the rank and file Dems that are your neighbors. I’m talking about the do-nothing Democrats (when they do something, it’s usually the wrong thing!) in Congress. Realizing they are less than two months away from midterm elections that still don’t bode well for their party, Democrats in the House and Senate are trying desperately to do SOMETHING before November 8th.

But it ain’t gonna be easy.

See, in order to get Joe Manchin on his side for the big trillion dollar budget busting spending bill Congress passed (I think they called it “Inflation Reduction”?) Chuckles Schumer had to agree to a side deal. That was that the fossil fuel industry was going to get some sweetheart deals going forward. Of course, that is included as part of the federal budget bill that has yet to pass Congress. But that throws a wrinkle into the whole process because people like Lizzy Warren and Bernie Sanders are totally against the deal. Worse yet, there are 70 Democrats in the House that say they won’t vote for the budget if Manchin’s deal is included. They don’t have a 70 vote margin! It won’t even pass the House!

So, what happens if Manchin gets screwed and the federal budget doesn’t pass because they don’t have 50 Democrats to vote for it (without Sanders and Warren)? Does Manchin get fed up and join the Republicans (which would give them a majority and totally throw the last month into chaos)? It would be interesting.

But Democrats can’t afford to be blamed for a government shutdown at the end of this month. That would put the brakes on any “wins” they think they’ve had this past summer.

That is the most pressing issue Dems face leading up to the midterms, but they want more. They want a “Defense of Marriage” act that basically codifies what has already been passed as a federal law. Interestingly enough, Congress is worried because of the Dobbs v. Jackson ruling by the Supreme Court that ended the federal law with abortion rights. The reasoning here is that it’s a states-rights issue and that states can decide whether or not same sex marriage is legal in their state. But the difference is huge. One is a procedure. The other is a “binding contract” between two parties. I don’t know how you could be recognized in California as a married couple, but not in Ohio (which is the case). A lot of states don’t recognize same sex marriage today, some even have it in their state’s constitution that it’s banned!

The House is still considering a “robust public safety package”. It’s basically a walk-back of the Democrats’ “defund the police” movement. It was supposed to go for a vote in July, but Nancy Pelosi didn’t have the votes (and still doesn’t).

Then there is the ubiquitous assault weapons ban that keeps rearing it’s ugly head. Doubtful that will even come up before the midterms.

Dems are hoping that they can do something besides pass a federal budget bill before the midterms. However that could very well be too little too late. Most people seem to already have made up their minds. Only the independents are making up theirs now, and that’s what causing the races around the country to be tightening. The big question is, will it be enough?

Here’s What America Thinks Midterms Are About…

I’ve spouted off pretty regularly now about how the GOP isn’t getting their message across, and how the Dems are trying to make this about abortion and taking away Social Security. Well, that’s nice that the parties are trying to define the election, but in essence, that’s not what matters. It matters what the PEOPLE think the midterms are all about. And it’s a pretty interesting comment.

It’s a referendum on Joe Biden.

At least that’s what 46% of the respondents to a survey taken by Rasmussen say. 40% say it’s about candidates and local issues, and 14% aren’t sure (still on summer break?).

A solid 50% of the 1,000 people surveyed said that if the Republicans win the House or Senate, that Joe Biden should temper his politics and become much more moderate.

So, what does that all mean? If a plurality of voters think that it’s all about Biden this time around, this should be a massive red wave, even with the meager Biden wins that he’s had in the last few weeks. And it raises a very interesting point. One of the major comments I keep getting from people is that Democrats don’t want to debate. We’re seeing it here in AZ, and you see it with the Fetterman/Oz battle in PA. It’s happening in a lot of other places as well.

When one side doesn’t want to debate it’s usually a sign that they are so far ahead in the polls that they can’t possibly do anything but fall if they debate. Usually it’s only the people trailing in the polls that want to debate because they feel they have something that will damage the leader. But in this case, it’s entirely different. The Democrats know they are going to have to distance themselves from Biden, and defend him because he’s in their party. That isn’t sitting well. So, they decide that they just don’t want to go through the hassle of prepping for a debate.

However, there are exceptions to that rule, and I can point to Fetterman/Oz, and here in AZ, the Governor’s race between Kari Lake and Katie Hobbs as an example. In both situations, the Republican candidates are extremely well versed in television. Oz had the “Dr. Oz” show on TV for years, and Kari Lake was one of Arizona’s most prominent newscasters for decades. Fetterman, having just suffered a stroke earlier this year is having problems speaking (Sorry John, I’m not making fun of you, I’m just stating a fact), and Hobbs is a career politician, not someone well-versed in television.

While Hobbs hasn’t chosen to debate Lake at all, Mark Kelly, himself on the hook for several lies in his political ads, has agreed to debate Blake Masters for the US Senate seat. But that’s simply because the race has tightened immensely in the past two weeks. Kelly had a 15 point lead a couple of weeks ago. Today it’s down to four. And Masters hadn’t run many ads throughout the summer months, but he’s starting to buy up TV time left and right, even though Kelly is outspending him 10-1.

The real focus on the midterms seems to be Joe Biden. If that’s the case, screaming that MAGA Republicans are a disaster for the democracy isn’t going to bode well for the Dems, even though there are several in Congress that echo Biden’s sentiments.

Dem’s SECRET Plan To Win In November

I will hand it to the Democrats. They are very good at coming up with playbook pieces that seem to work. You can go back to the 1992 presidential election and understand what I’m talking about. Do you remember James Carville’s famous quote, “It’s the economy, stupid”? Democrats won that election because they hammered home what they felt was important. It was the economy. Actually, not so much with Bush 43, but it worked. Later, Clinton was able to add to that playbook item. If you tell a lie enough times, people start to believe it. That’s what got him reelected.

Well, this year, the Democrats have a play that is well underway. We’re seeing it every single day.

Joe Biden has been on the campaign trail for the last month not necessarily campaigning for Democrats because there are tons of Dems’ that don’t want to be seen with him. But he’s been out there, typically in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, where he hopes he can flip two US Senate seats. And he hasn’t necessarily been campaigning with the Senate candidates. He’s been bashing Republicans. Oh, he says it’s just the MAGA Republicans, which have been called “half-fascists”, and a “threat to our democracy”. And while the right screams that he’s breaking a campaign promise of “unifying the country”, which he never really wanted to do, he IS accomplishing the task at hand.

He is controlling the message.

Think about it. Every day that goes by that the media are talking about how he’s using non-campaign events to bash Republicans, what isn’t being done? We aren’t hearing about the economy, the inflation rate, the southern border crisis, the high crime rate, the botched withdrawal in Afghanistan, the possibility of an Iranian Nuclear Deal, and Ukraine’s war with Russia and the hundreds of billions we are spending on that. We aren’t hearing about the supply chain issues that still plague the country either.

And people like Raphael Warnock in Georgia, Mark Kelly here in Arizona, and Catherine Cortez Masto in Nevada are able to scream about abortion, and say that Republicans want to take away Social Security and Medicare (they don’t…they want to privatize them). People are starting to believe the lies.

Yes, the races are tightening in the Senate contests. Kelly is only about 4 points ahead of Blake Masters. Herschel Walker has bumped ahead of Warnock in Georgia in a couple of polls, and in Colorado, Joe O’Dea has pulled to within five points of Michael Bennett! Still, you’re hearing how confident the Dems are becoming. And it’s because they know if they keep talking about Donald Trump, MAGA Republicans, and Mar-a-Lago, that Republicans aren’t able to talk about the real issues that matter most to people.

In order to win this election, the GOP needs to control the message. They need to get back on top. Trump isn’t helping because frankly, this election isn’t about Trump. This election is about stopping Biden. We have two years to worry about Trump. He needs to go away for a while and stop complaining about the FBI and how poorly he’s been treated.

Are The “Warning Signs” Real?

The New York Times came out with a piece last week about how the warning signs are showing up again for the Democrats. The “warning signs” they were talking about were the poll numbers that weren’t very accurate the last few election cycles, and there’s a good reason for that. But are they actual warning signs for the Dems this time around?

The first thing that most (not all) of these polls do is over-sample Democrats. I’ve seen polls where as high as 46% were registered Democrats. In actuality, it’s nowhere near that much. According to statistics from states, only 24% of voters identify as Republican. 28% identify as Democrats, and 46% identify as independents.

Second, you have to take a really hard look at who is doing the poll, and what has their track record been in the past. While there were some that were accurate prior to 2016 (before Trump beat Clinton), they have fallen off quite a bit in the last five or six years. Zogby is one of those polls. Emerson and Harris are also pretty liberal.

Third, take a look at what happened in 2016, 2018, and 2020 versus what the polls said would happen. Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Nevada, and Michigan all over-played a Biden win and predicted Democrat wins in 2016 and 2018, by several points. In some states it was a percentage point or less, and they had Biden winning by as many as eight points! The same polls had Florida and North Carolina going to Biden right up until the election in 2020, but he ended up losing both states to Trump. And Texas, Iowa, and Ohio were all close enough to be called “toss-up” states in the polls, but were comfortably in Trump’s corner in 2020.

We’re seeing some huge Democrat leads in a lot of the polling right now, especially in the Senate races. That would concern most Republicans, and even has led to Mitch McConnell calling the field of candidates “weak”. And in a lot of cases, he’s probably right. But the races in pretty much all of the Senate races are tightening to the point where maybe the Dems won’t expand their lead in the Senate. Maybe they won’t end up with a lead in the Senate at all. Here in Arizona, Blake Masters has closed the gap on Mark Kelly to within the margin of error in the last two weeks after being down by 11 points earlier.

In Pennsylvania, what was once a John Fetterman 13 point lead over Mehmet Oz is down to 4 points. In Florida, Val Demings had a slim lead over Marco Rubio, but that’s disappeared, and now Rubio leads by 3. In Georgia, Herschel Walker was down by 4-6 points to Raphael Warnock by now has been leading for the last two weeks. Catherine Cortez Masto once led Republican Adam Laxalt by 7-10 points. Now it’s down to 1 to 2 points, well within the margin of error. North Carolina has Ted Budd now leading Cheri Beasley by 3 points. He was behind by the same amount.

The generic ballot over in the House is another indicator that polls aren’t working. Between 1996 and 2020, the generic ballot (which Rasmussen now gives to the GOP by 4 points) was off in all but two of the 13 elections. In 2008, Democrats did 2 points better than the polls indicated, and in 2018, they did exactly what the polls indicated. Other than that the polling heavily favored the Democrats and Republicans out-performed the polls significantly. So, a GOP by 4 point lead tells me that it’s going to be a huge GOP win. The last time it was even more than one or two points for the GOP, was 2010 when the GOP took back the House during the Obama administration.

So, overall, I would have to agree the New York Times election analyst, Nate Cohn that states that are showing large Democrat wins right now, like Wisconsin, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, may just be a mirage. We can only hope!

Is Dems’ Primary Plan Backfiring?

It’s not a very new or even well thought out plan. The Democrats nationally have been pouring millions of dollars into the primary campaigns of more right-wing candidates on the Republican side. Why would anyone do such a thing and back their potential opponents? Simple. They wanted to have weaker candidates make it through the GOP primaries so they would have a much easier time holding the House and Senate come midterm elections time.

The problem is the plan isn’t working.

What it has done is help a lot of Trump-supported candidates make it through the primary, which not only excites the left because they’re going to be running a campaign that makes this midterm a referendum on Donald Trump, but it also excites a lot of the Trump base who are now more excited about turning out at the polls on election day.

But that’s not what the nasty little secret is.

In a lot of parts of the country where this tactic was taking place, Democrats are watching in horror as the GOP candidates, who were behind, sometimes by double digits, like Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania was, are now within the margin of error, and two months away from the midterm, are within striking distance to make a HUGE win for the GOP.

I’m not saying that the red wave is back, at least just yet. But the polling numbers I’m seeing from around the country are moving in that direction a tad. They need to keep moving that way. But there’s another sneaky little situation that the Democrats have found themselves in.

They can’t fight the GOP on being too far right.

All the Republican candidates have to do is mention that the Democrats funded their primary campaign to the tune of “X” millions of dollars, because they were the more sensible candidate, and it blows the credibility of the Democrats’ play right out the window. After all, why would you criticize a candidate for being a right-wing nut job, when you donated millions to their very campaign that you’re now chastising? You wouldn’t unless you want to get caught with your hand in the cookie jar.

It’s just the latest attempt of Democrats who understand they have a huge uphill battle to control Congress next year, and would do anything including voter fraud and intimidation, to win. It’s straight out of the Dems’ playbook. If you can’t win normally, change the rules. If you can’t change the rules, cheat. Winning is the only thing that matters.

Wouldn’t it be funny if they didn’t have enough money because of what they did in the primaries, to back their own candidates come November?

So, Why Continue?

I don’t know what the advertising for the midterms is like where you live. Here in the AZ, we’re getting besieged by ads and most of them at this early stage are Democrat ads and liberal PAC’s.

There is something funny going on though. Rather than watching ads dealing with the issues that concern Arizonans, and Americans the most, things like inflation, the economy and the recession, and border issues, we’re seeing a totally different type of ad.

The two big ads that are being pumped right now showcase abortion, and privatizing Social Security. Neither of those two things are in touch with what America feels are really strong campaign issues. We also are seeing stuff about the January 6th committee’s hearings. Who the hell cares?

Andy Barr (R-KY) was on Meet The Press this past weekend, and here’s what he said regarding the 2020 election and the January 6th Committee hearings:

“These congressional seats do not belong to politicians in Washington,” Barr said. “These seats belong to the American people, and there is a massive, massive disconnect between the priorities of politicians in Washington and the concerns of the American people.”

“Not once have any of my constituents–Republican or Democrat–talked about the 2020 election, January 6th, the committee in Washington, or any of these issues. They’re talking about not being able to afford putting food on the table, putting gas in their trucks, and not being able to see their grandson again because he died of a fentanyl overdose.”

I think Representative Barr is on to something here. In Arizona, there is a fight for the Senate seat currently being held by Mark Kelly. His ads against Republican challenger, Blake Masters focus on Masters’ stance on abortion (he’s against it), and for privatizing Social Security. The abortion ads are going to appeal to about 9% of the Democrat base and few others. As for privatizing Social Security, isn’t it about time?

Think about this. How do people usually get rich in this country? They invest in the stock market, right? So, what in heck is bad about that? Most every American that’s working these days invests in the stock market through their 401k at work. What do you think mutual funds are? The stock market actually IS a better way to save Social Security! If you make Social Security private and individualized accounts, the government can’t raid it like they’ve done to get us into this mess.

As for the January 6th Committee, I think there would be more acceptance from them if they were actually bi-partisan, and if they were investigating ALL of the riots that were occurring over the past two or three years. Why not include the BLM riots? That caused billions more in damage to federal property in places like Seattle, Portland, Chicago and New York! But it appears to about 73% of Americans that this is nothing more than a political witch hunt…and the people sitting on that committee know it.

If you want to run for reelection, as Mark Kelly is trying to do, I get it that you need something to talk about. His ads are basically lies about how he is trying to bring down the cost of gasoline, while he’s actually voting to raise it. There needs to be a truth in politics law somewhere. Not sure how it would work, but smart minds can craft this and get it together quickly. The problem is passing it with Democrats in power.
