The morning after, we held on through the night

The morning after, we held on through the night

It could have been worse – if we had to lose one chamber, better it be the House than the Senate.

It could have been worse. Much worse.

There was no Blue Wave. Democrats performed in the House in accordance with historical averages for gains in a president’s first midterms.

As of this writing, the NY Times House Results chart is showing Democrats picking up 26 seats in races that have been called, but when all is settled, the gain will be in the 30-35 seat range. This is far better for Trump than Bill Clinton’s loss of 54 seats in 1994, and Barack Obama’s loss of 63 seats in 2010. So anyone who says this is a repudiation of Trump is saying so for motivations divorced from history. To the contrary, given the historically high number (48) of Republican incumbent retirements, holding the House always was going to be challenging.

In the Senate, Republicans did very well.

The NY Times is showing a net gain of 2 seats in races that have been called, but that almost certainly will increase to 3-4, as Florida has not been officially called, but Rick Scott has given a victory speech and no one expects that to change. Republicans lead by small amounts in Arizona and Montana, and the Republican highly likely will win the Mississippi runoff (there was a jungle election for one of the two Mississippi open seats, and no one got 50%). [Update: Democrat John Tester now appears to have won in Montana]

So in all likelihood, we are looking at a 53-47, or maybe even 54-46 Republican majority. That means on judicial nominations Republicans no longer are held hostage by Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski. There may be new shaky Republican Senators to emerge (guessing Romney), but Flake and Corker are gone due to retirement. If it does end up that Republicans have 53-54 seats, it’s going to be difficult for Democrats to take back the Senate in 2020.

Certainly I hoped we would hold the House, let’s not kid ourselves. But if I had to lose one chamber, I’d rather it be the House.

Nothing meaningful in terms of reforming government or advancing Trump’s agenda is likely to get done legislatively when the chambers are split, but at least judicial nominations can move forward at an even faster pace.  Taking back one of the three branches of government from serving as a liberal super-legislature, perhaps for a generation, is an achievement that makes a difference.

Democrats of course are thrilled that they have the House. There will be a Blue Wave of investigations and theatrics. Because the Democrat bench was wiped out during the Obama years, the Democrat survivors and senior members are the most extreme people who come from safe liberal districts. Having Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters as the faces of the Democrat Party, and runaway Democrats spending all their time on investigations, is not a bad scenario for 2020, either in terms of the congressional races or the presidential contest.

Because the Democrats do not have a large majority in the House, there is going to be a lot of tension between the new cohort of far-left activists from deep blue districts, like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and the traditional elderly coruptocrat Democrats who will be running committees.

This presents opportunity and risk for and with Trump. Trump is a dealmaker. There probably will be some things he and Pelosi can get together on, particularly if it means spending a lot of money on things like infrastructure. Some Democrats, elected on a platform of resistance, will not want to give Trump any victories. The risk is that Trump will strike bad deals.

If Trump wants to get something done that fits his announced agenda, he’s going to have to do it administratively and by removing regulation.

The election had other positive effects. Beto is history as an elected official, though no doubt he’ll become a campaign trail rock star for others. Florida and Ohio are solidly in Republican hands. Gillum’s rising stardom has faded, as has Stacey Abrams’. It’s hard to see a new face of the Democrat party emerging, so the presidential candidates will be the same old, same old.

Perhaps the biggest loss of the night was that Scott Walker lost in the early morning hours when Democrats found 50,000 uncounted absentee ballots in Milwaukee County. Until then Walker had a slight lead. So much of this website’s history was tied into Walker’s campaigns and the conservative revolution in Wisconsin, it’s sad to see him go. Republicans still control the legislature there, so it will be hard for the reforms to be reversed formally, but still, Wisconsin is now run by a liberal Democrat governor and Democrats got the scalp they wanted most.

There are many other things to say about last night. But for now, we can say we made it through the night.

Thanks to all LI contributors for the hard work necessary to keep us readers informed throughout this election season.

If we have a affix blame for the loss of the House, Paul Ryan and complete representation of the Chamber of Commerce would be my choice. A lame duck speaker, who openly opposed the President’s immigration policy was not helpful. Ryan once had promise, but like so many who go to Washington, sold out to the Chamber of Commerce and now will become even richer as a lobbyist / advisor. There was no energy from the House, almost conceding against a strong slate of veterans the Dems selected. I like Kevin McCarthy but I don’t think he’s up to the job as minority leader. We should go with Jim Jordan, who will take on Ms. Pig-losi. McCarthy would be like taking a knife to a gun fight. We need to focus on winning back the House in 2020 with a “tea party” like approach to the bad ways of Democrats. Americans get that.

We survived the night. Thaqt’s good enough for the night. That is not good enough for tomorrow.

First produce a list of those who vowed never to vote for Pelosi, in particular, the moderates. hold their feet to the fire. Make it known that if they vote for her, we will run ads “first vote and you are already breaking promises”. The Dems are snookered. 3 votes they have zero maneuvering room, push them and push them hard.

Next push on Manchin. I think with a little push he will change parties.

Next. Trump should fire Sessions and Rosenstein. Especially now since the House is no longer investigating the DOJ and FBI. The Senate will not be as agressive.

    I think supporters of “moderate” Democrats who promised to oppose Pelosi will be surprised when they cast their votes for her and vote in lockstep with her on every issue. Democrats brook no dissent from its office holders, and these new members will be educated in proper voting as soon as they hit DC for orientation.

      AmandaFitz in reply to zennyfan. | November 7, 2018 at 9:31 am

      Democrats always run as someone they are NOT! John Culberson lost to Lizzie Pannill Fletcher for a variety of reasons, but chief among them is simply that she pretends to be someone she’s not. Culberson didn’t take her seriously enough and didn’t understand that she had the backing of Pelosi, the River Oaks social set of which she is a member, etc. She pretended to be “just a regular person,” neglecting to mention that she’s a trust fund baby whose family has always greased the way for her. The Republicans in her district didn’t “get” that she was a real threat to Culberson because she’s a young female with lots of personal financial resources, lots of ties in the legal community (Vinson and Elkins for both her and her husband at one time) and the backing of groups like Planned Parenthood. She has no kids, so she can go to DC and really live there! Start NOW to find an attractive candidate to oppose her.

    Dear Rod:

    I understand the disdain people have for Sessions, but the truth is, THE TRUTH IS, that he is a VERY RARE immigration hawk, and there is NO ONE that Trump could put in that position that would be as hawkish on immigration as Sessions.

    If we lose Sessions, we lose ALL efforts to enforce immigration law. Everyone else talking it, except the likes of Korbach, Steve King, and the like, are all just saying what they think voters want to hear, not what they actually believe.

    Losing Sessions is a dangerous gambit, with the voter rolls full of illegal alien voting, etc.

      I have to think that if we don’t somehow manage to establish integrity in the voting system, the corruption will only deepen.

      The campaign against Sessions must be a delight to the Democrats, who can tell that an awful lot of people have no clue what he has been doing as Attorney General, even though it’s published information.

Last night wasn’t the worst. Honestly it looks like the Republicans could have held the House if they had campaigned and nationalized some of the swing districts. If Montana and Arizona hold, we will have a good majority in the Senate. But what “needs improvement”?
– Texas was WAY too close
– We lost a lot of good governors
– Many Democrats elected in “moderate” districts are bleeding heart socialists

I think WI will be headed for a recount.

“and the Republican highly likely will win the Alabama runoff (there was a jungle election for one of the two Alabama open seats, and no one got 50%)”
Alabama . . . Mississippi . . . what’s the difference.

    Observer in reply to TokyoSteve. | November 7, 2018 at 10:21 am

    I don’t know about Alabama, but here in AZ McSally (R) holds about a 16,000 vote lead with 99% of precincts reporting. Under AZ law, there is no recount unless the winning margin is less than 1/10 of 1% of the total votes cast for the top two candidates, and McSally’s current lead puts her well beyond that margin. Unless something hinky happens, expect McSally to be announced as the official winner later today.

Before the election President Trump said that if we lost the House he’d deal with it. If any president can work around that it’s Trump.

MaggotAtBroadAndWall | November 7, 2018 at 8:06 am

The consultants, strategists, PR firms, and media are always the biggest winner whether the candidates they work for win or lose. So it’s fun to see millionaire and billionaire Democrats (Steyer, Soros, Bloomberg, Hollyweird) dump hundreds of millions in many losing races, but the consultant class get richer regardless.

They’ll be tooling around Washington in new BMWs whether their candidates won or lost.

Thanks for all the excellent work LI.

Considering the onslaught, we held up well. Trump performed a Herculean task and not only saved, but greatly enhanced the senate. Corker, Flake, etc. will be replaced by solid team players.

The Dems can make some trouble with investigations, but that’s all they have. Trump, on the other hand, has a pen and phone, and the beginnings of a reformed court system to back him up.

As a bonus, if he can rustle away some Dem house votes, we could see some decent legislation in the next two years.

My greatest worry, however, is academia. This is the source of the rot. It does us little good to win battles now while the schools are cranking out more and more socialists.

Now the RINO’s are gone or powerless Trump can appoint a REAL AG…one that will actually get stuck in to Democrat corruption (we can only but hope!!!).

More importantly next year he will get to appoint a THIRD Justice to the Supreme Court AND he gets to continue to reshape the judiciary by appointing judges who will respect the Constitution and the law as written!

So let the Democrats have Congress so they can bark at the moon like a toothless puppy dog for the next two years.

Trump’s about face on exposing the deep-state led many voters to believe that there is no deep-state and with typical irrationality, chose to ignore the economy and the replacement voter invasions which will now only accelerate.

Pelosi will not pass any effective immigration law nor will she support any of the trade deals in progress. Those trade deals will fail and the voters will blame Trump for these outlandish failures.

    mailman in reply to stablesort. | November 7, 2018 at 9:53 am

    Or maybe its just the fair weather voters like yourself who think the President can actually do anything he pleases (although to be fair, Obama got about as close as is possible for a President to do as he pleases without ever being held accountable).

    I think a big part of the problem for draining the swamp was AG Sessions going missing in action BEFORE the fucker had even been appointed by the Senate!! And with the RINO’s in place there wasn’t a thing Trump could do to replace him since they all would have opposed a REAL AG being put in place to root out Democrat corruption.

    That barrier has now been removed so watch out for the new year as Trump moves to appoint a new, BREATHING, AG!

    tom_swift in reply to stablesort. | November 7, 2018 at 11:00 am

    Pelosi will not pass any effective immigration law

    Fortunately, she doesn’t need to. We have perfectly good immigration laws and a functional enforcement apparatus. We just need someone who takes them seriously and is willing to enforce them, and that has nothing to do with the House. Conceivably the House could strangle some of it via the budget, but since that would involve less spending, I don’t see the D’rats jumping on it any time soon.

    nor will she support any of the trade deals in progress.

    Once again, she doesn’t need to. Negotiations are in the hands of the Executive, and the resulting treaties go to the Senate.

    A Republican House would be a useful thing, certainly, but a Democratic one isn’t an impassable stumbling block.

      Milhouse in reply to tom_swift. | November 7, 2018 at 3:03 pm

      We do not have good immigration laws. It’s our immigration laws that have caused most of this mess. The caravan is coming because our laws require us to give a fair hearing to anyone claiming asylum, so now everyone caught on the wrong side of the border knows all they need to do is claim asylum and they will get a hearing date three years down the road, by which time they will have disappeared. Our laws (i.e. the Flores consent decree) don’t allow minors to be kept in custody for more than 20 days, and Trump found out the hard way that it’s politically impossible to split families, so if “asylum-seekers” have a minor with them they have to be released until their hearing date. These two laws need to be changed by legislation, and there is no way a D-controlled House will pass it.

      As for trade deals, unless they result in self-executing treaties, they will have to be enacted by legislation, which the Ds will block.

      And it’s not just “investigations” though that’s bad enough; it’s also impeachment.

        Arminius in reply to Milhouse. | November 7, 2018 at 8:40 pm

        How do we know if we have good immigration laws? We’ve never tried them.

        It’s like we’ve been renting them out to a sixties or early seventies rock band.

        Oh, the TV isn’t working? It’s not like the The Who beat it to death with a guitar. Our hotel just has screwed up TVs, which all of a sudden for no reason whatsoever stop working.

          Arminius in reply to Arminius. | November 7, 2018 at 8:50 pm

          I was painting with too broad a brush. I meant we haven’t been enforcing the laws lately. My ancestors arrived here through Ellis Island. Where, if you had emphysema, you got sent back to your one donkey ville full of dog doo. Typhyus epidemic, sanctuary city/state Los Angeles?

          Seriously, I don’t see how it makes me wrong to want the new immigrants to jump through the same hoops. I don’t want to catch a disease that isn’t fatal.

          Milhouse in reply to Arminius. | November 8, 2018 at 1:01 am

          We are trying them. We’re obeying them, and that’s the problem. As I wrote above, the laws we have require letting all aliens who claim asylum stay until we can give them a hearing, and require that any minors among them be released within 20 days. That means the only legal options are releasing the minor without the parents, or releasing the whole family. We’ve seen that the former is politically impossible, so with our current laws the latter is effectively required. The only solution is to change the laws, and now that’s become impossible.

It’s brighter this morning than it was in 2008.

Thank you for this spot on overview of What-Just-Happened. Thank you!

I suppose the silver lining is that we did rid ourselves some of the most odious players deeply entrenched on our own side. And “the tension between the new cohort of far-left activists from deep blue districts” will speed up the erosion of the Dem core constituencies as the scales continue to fall from the eyes of many blacks, Hispanics, Jews, Etc. as Trump manages to accomplish successes the Dems always promise but NEVER deliver. Hopefully Trump can divide and conquer.

As for Scott Walker, Sessions made a big pronouncement that they plan to monitor ballot access on Election Day, and said “fraud in the voting process will not be tolerated.” Before yesterday, I’d have hoped that would indicate we would see some action taken over those 50,000 “found” ballots…. but today, I have to acknowledge that I’m just prone to wishful thinking.

    mailman in reply to elle. | November 7, 2018 at 9:54 am

    How does one just happen to find 50,000 ballots??? And what was the break down of the ballots? Did they all magically go for the Democrat?

      DINORightMarie in reply to mailman. | November 8, 2018 at 5:57 am

      “Democrats found 50,000 uncounted absentee ballots”

      This is what they do! In OH in 2008 they pulled this in several counties (found by an election official in their car, as I recall), and in several other local/state elections is is the same.

      If I recall correctly, this happened with that insult of a MN Senator Frankin when they “found” many absentee ballots during the recount……

      It has been for a LONG time the tactic – a “close” election; ballots “found”; magically, the “close” race is now a definite DEM win!

      One of the MANY voter fraud tactics…….and it won’t stop till people realize it and STOP voting DEMOCRAT.

        That’s kind of missing the point. The reason for the fraudulent ballots is because they can’t get enough votes legally. The solution is long prison terms for anybody they can catch and convict – and that obviously isn’t going to happen when the left is in control.

Close The Fed | November 7, 2018 at 9:21 am

Again, Newt Gingrich’s reform of GOP House Committee Chairmanships contributed to the GOP retirements. If you’re term-limited out of a chairmanship and return to rank-and-file status, you don’t want to hang around.

So, we do have a much better bench because young office holders see a future, but we lose the older ones because the “fun” is gone.

Look at the dems, hoping, hoping, hoping, Pelosi will retire. Or graciously give up the gavel. But she doesn’t have it in her. She’s no Newt Gingrich, and thus the Dems, who are all about “the little guy,” kick him in the groin and put their foot on his neck, if the newby tries to actually get power if elected.

The dems are nothing if not predictable.

Last night wasn’t the worst.”

at least at night, you can’t see the sharks. When the sun comes up, you wish it had not.

I hate that the GOP lost the House but the good news is that under Pelosi, Trump will have a foil to run against! He could not choose a better opponent than her. Along with the other ship of fools like Nadler and Schiff, not to even mention Waters, he will have a shooting gallery of targets to show the Dems for what they truly are. Part of the big House loss was the large number of Republicans who decided that to run again would be too difficult so they retired. Good riddance! With the Senate in his hands, Trump will get more judges appointed than ever before as well as new cabinet members confirmed.

Now we just need to ensure Republicans make Pelosi Speaker and keep her there. That is our winning ticket for 2020. No way America wants any of her stuff, I would think, however a lot of communists did win in the house.

    rdmdawg in reply to Mark. | November 7, 2018 at 10:46 am

    Excellent point. We’re about to get two amazing years of President Trump and Cocaine Mitch vs. Nancy Freakin’ Pelosi. I can already see the 2020 Red Wave from here.

Good points. Great read. Thanks to William Jacobson and all the LI staff for keeping us informed without the shrill ‘sky is falling’ drama queen shtick so common elsewhere.

One other thing worth mentioning in conjunction with the mentions of no really effective gains for the Democrats without their ‘blue wave’ is the very real likelihood that ¡The Three Amigos! — San Fran Nan Pelosi, Adam Schiff for brains, and crusty old Auntie Maxine Waters — are practically guaranteed to hand President Donald J Trump his second term on a silver platter if San Fran Nan gets that gavel back. More pragmatic [and saner] Democrats are sure to realize this too, so there will most definitely be much infighting and division among Democrats for some time to come 😉

    rdmdawg in reply to FlatFoot. | November 7, 2018 at 11:18 am

    Nancy Pelosi getting Speakership back is as inevitable as last night’s house victory for Dems was. I see no other way this will fall out.

I was told by a local politician last night that the Kavanaugh thing was all Kamala Harris, not Diane Feinstein, and that she is more likely to be run as a Presidential hopeful than Elizabeth Warren. That pol is worried about Harris.

Harris doesn’t strike me as particularly bright, but she may know how to secure others to push her along, much like BO.

I find it funny, that Democrats always find a bag of ballots to come out the winners.

Don’t fool yourselves. The Republican leadership breathed a sigh of relief when the Dems retook the House.

23 Republican House members, many in senior or leadership positions, decided to retire. Then, the Republican controlled congress FAILED to pass legislation, which it had promised to do during the 2016 elections. And, the POTUS called them out on that. So now, the Republicans can conveniently do nothing to advance the Trump agenda and blame it on the Dems, as they blamed their failures for the last six years of the Obama administration on a Democrat President. And, they can run for reelection as SUPPORTING the Trump agenda, while nothing gets done.

It was a foregone conclusion that the Dems would retake the House, in 2018, as the actions of House Republicans almost assured that many Trump voters would simply stay home.

    Bucky Barkingham in reply to Mac45. | November 7, 2018 at 11:28 am

    Will the House GOP learn anything from this mid-term or will we just get the next generation of RINO leaders?

      The RINOs will only find out that being a minority means less donations from the Chamber of Commerce political fund. The CofC requires less out!at of cash. Ryan did their bidding…and there was no further need for him.

      This is the true run up to 2020. This is Dems and effort. They beat the drum on Health care which seemed odd but they knew it would play again with the same old !ies.

      I am leary about the future as the trend is now more openly socialism as Dem platform. It is a good gauge as to the shallowness of the electorate. The entire coast of California is now blue. Should a major disaster hit, the lemmings will disperse like the Puerto Ricans did and you see how tight Florida was. It’s knife edge politics now.

      Will the House GOP learn anything from this mid-term or will we just get the next generation of RINO leaders?

      It is up to us to get involved and primary them out. That’s where the real problem is. It is with us.

“”Scott Walker lost in the early morning hours when Democrats found 50,000 uncounted absentee ballots in Milwaukee County.””

You write that as if it was perfectly normal for Wisconsin Dems to cheat. Oh yeah, that’s right, it is.

I don’t feel to bad about things now. Hillary Clinton is still not President. Our position is not all that bad.

    It occurs to me that not winning the house may be a blessing in disguise. Imagine how unhinged and violent the left might have become if they had lost both houses! Instead, they are on cloud nine right now, confident that they showed those dirty Walmart people who is in charge. Maybe, this will be an important step in calming the crazy and divisive atmosphere of our country as many in the Democratic core constituencies get a clue and quietly head for the exits.

https://www.usni.org/magazines/navalhistory/2015-04/landing-troops-across-rhine

“These craft were 36-foot LCVPs (landing craft, vehicle, personnel) or 50-foot LCMs (landing craft, mechanized)—boats that had brought U.S. troops ashore at Normandy. Now, far from the ocean or English Channel, they were on their way to the Rhine River, the physical and symbolic barrier to the German heartland—broad, swift, and hemmed in by high bluffs for much of its rush from alpine headwaters to the North Sea.
The U.S. Navy’s involvement in breaching this mighty obstruction demonstrated the adaptability of U.S. forces, the possibilities of interservice cooperation, and foresight in putting these large and specialized craft in the right places far from the sea, at the right time, to facilitate the final thrust that brought victory over Germany. “

It’s never good to be certain.

Here’s what likely happened.

https://www.reddit.com/r/nononono/comments/1f7dxk/us_navy_ship_loses_anchor_and_chain_some/

“Here’s what happened:
First, they were likely veering the chain out. This is done after setting the anchor. When you release the brake to drop the anchor, it comes out very fast due to the massive weight of the anchor. When setting the anchor, you usually release enough chain to equal 3 times the depth of the water. For example, in 30 meters of water, release 3 shots of chain. 1 shot equals 15 fathoms, or 90 feet. Once this amount of chain is payed out, the brake is set “two-man tight” (insert mom joke here). The ship will be backing down to “set” the anchor in the mud/sand/shell bottom and they will determine if the anchor is holding. If it is holding, then they will veer out more chain. You typically veer to 3-5 times the depth.
The two guys turning that wheel were on the brake. They were turning counter-clockwise to release the brake. Quite often in relatively shallow water, there will not be enough weight of the chain payed out to pull the rest of the chain out of the chain locker. That’s why it was moving so slow as opposed to how it whips out violently when you drop anchor. The ship should have had on an astern bell to help “pull” the chain out. Big ships like TARAWA are steam driven and take lots of time to come up in speed. When the chain was not feeding out ofter the brake was released, they kept turning, and turning, and turning. There were way too many turns taken off and the brake was nowhere near the engagement point. The ship probably got some sternway (reverse speed) and then the chain was finally pulled out of the locker. When they realized they needed to set the brake, they had to undo all of those needless turns, which is why you could see them frantically turning clockwise.
This is just my educated guess from watching the video.
Source: 17 years in the Navy… and counting.”

THANK you for the recap professor…

I was feeling a bit sad today, but not nearly as sad as when TheWon got in for a 2nd time…

THAT was devastating…

I agree the horrible Pee-lousy Democrats will probably make it an EASY 2020 win for Trump…

So there’s that…

In Oklahoma, we now have a Cherokee for governor (Stitt) and US Rep (Mullin) as well as a Chickasaw (Cole).

Unfortunately, Steve Russell lost as Rep for the 5th District – that’s surprising since he was military (part of team that found Saddam H.) https://www.amazon.com/We-Got-Him-Capture-Hussein/dp/1451665121.

I wonder if the new D will be willing to hear my comments – I usually call the Senators & Rep at least once a month to voice my opinion. I may need to up the commenting to once a week!

This sets up nicely for the 2020 Red Tide.

A wave lasts but a second, a tide for hours.

“It could have been worse. Much worse.”

I heartedly agree, Professor Jacobson. So, perhaps, as we approach our national Thanksgiving Holiday, we might well consider some our blessings, one for which we ought to be grateful. For the victories that were won, we offer thanks. For the gracious manner in which those whom we supported accepted their defeat, we offer thanks. For all those who, today, assist us in finding avenues around the detours we’ve encountered, we offer thanks.

We offer thanks for President Trump, staff, and family for all their activities these past weeks, often going the extra mile. We offer thanks for this blog, all who contribute in whatever capacity, and the possibilities it offers to our edification. For these and many other blessings, we offer thanks. It could have been worse.

Gos bless America!

It seems that between now and Christmas Eve there could be a whole lot of still-Republican-majority legislatin’ going on. Six-or-so weeks of 16-hour workdays, one might think that even the RINOs could be motivated to action. (I’m including our guy John Katko up here in that passive cross-the-aisle group.)

Am I wrong in thinking that should happen?

Isn’t there still a “budget” “deadline” still dangling out there sometime soon? And/or an impending federal-debt “ceiling”?

“Scott Walker lost in the early morning hours when Democrats found 50,000 uncounted absentee ballots in Milwaukee County”

Magically finding 50,000 ballots looks like a repeat of Franken, on a larger scale.

50k votes, that were misplaced… Walker may have to pay for a recount but being Milwaukee, you can safly bet on shinanigans going on here.
i kniw of someone h
who hasn’t voted in a while (and still hasn’t) Im gonna check to make sure that person didn’t magically vote.
