US 2018 Midterm Elections

Politics / US Congressional Elections Oct 31, 2018 - 06:52 AM GMT

By: BATR

Politics

Conventional political wisdom would have the public believe that the electorate is poised for the Democrats to take a majority in the House of Representatives while the Republicans hold the edge in the Senate. Seldom is the question raised just what empirical evidence, where and how is it arrived at for such a conclusion to become valid. The polls in 2016 were entirely bogus and undoubtedly meant to defeat Donald Trump. Nothing has changed in the 2018 midterms. The establishment is committed to defeat GOP candidates and ensure that the Deep State regains their former power and influence. The distortion of reality is their major tactic to confuse, discourage and suppress Trump supporters from casting their ballots.


The latest fabrication for scamming the ill-informed is the false flag of fake explosive devices. This scenario of a bad screen play has all the markings of desperate Democrats working in tandem with their despotic betrayers, who do not want to see America Great Again.

Voting for Republicans in this midterm achieves several objectives. First and foremost, winning a House of Representatives majority will return chairmanships of committees. If the Democrats gained control, some of the most extreme, radical and demented congressmen and women would conduct a non-stop assault on President Trump and his achievements and further agenda.

Second preventing an obscene Mueller witch hunt to continue and conducting an impeachment spectacle, would put a halt to the notable recovery the country is experiencing under President Trump.

Lastly, President Trump needs dependable Republicans that will pass his proposed legislation. The current phalanx of establishment elected officials produced the likes of NeoCons, Paul Ryan and John McCain. The blame lies with them and their Quisling comrades.

This is not a time for divided government. Many entrenched RINO's have retired and not running for re-election. Not every GOP candidate is a solid constitutionalist. However, when compared with the Democrat slate of authoritarians the choice is clear.

These midterms should be viewed as a test of the psychological programming that the mass media continues to spew out with little regard for facts and the truth. Since numerous generations of indoctrinated subjects from government schools have never developed the skills for critical thinking, they rely on dishonest presstitutes and inept celebrities for current politics and made up news.

If the totalitarian socialists swindle their way to election victories, the country will become a society of identity political correctness as the traditions since our founding as a nation are systematically eliminated. Add to this bleak prospect, the very real threat that election fraud is likely to reach levels never seen before.

The old standards of the in and out parties no longer exist. Today the criterion is allegiance to the establishment new world order or a rebirth of the principles and separations of power institutions of our founding fathers. While many offended citizens object to the Trump style of achieving major resets in policy direction, their traumatized reaction stems from their lack and ability to accept that the consequences of the last several administrations has brought the country to the brink of collapse.

If you reject that Donald Trump is a modern day George Washington, at least acknowledge that his criticism of The Federal Reserve mirrors the same character that embodied President Andrew Jackson. If that argument falls short for your status quo security requirement, consider that previous presidents who challenged a central bank where either killed or eliminated from power in short order. Encouraging Trump to act swiftly (after the midterms) would provide comfort for any skeptics.

Are there ideal candidates from either party running for office in this cycle? Well, maybe a true believer can find an example or two, but the overriding reality is that the two party facades rely upon permanent residence within the beltway to perpetuate the business as usual circus that uses revolving doors and campaign bribes to keep the federal money ATM machine spitting out phony debt created money.

Look, the Federal debt is not being retired; it is going up because of higher interest rates. While Congress passed a budget for the first time in years, neither party has lifted one finger to cut budgets and lower expenditures. Be honest with yourself. These midterms won't change the culture of excess just by changing the names on a few office doors. The admission that Congress is bought to the highest contributors is inescapable.

President Trump is above all a businessman. Only a careerist politician fears his reforms. After the results are in and the votes are tallied the work of the American public starts. Lobbying the legislature is the only way to apply pressure to the nervous system. Bureaucrat agencies with their civil service technocrats enact their own perverted regulations usually contrary to the intent of the original law.

The tremendous disruptions and chaos of the last couple of weeks is a result of a concerted effort to sway the midterm elections to the Democrats so that President Trump will fail in his remaining time in office. There will be ample time to list the mistakes that Trump has made in foreign policy, not charging Mueller, Comey and the rest of the FBI and DOJ criminals and appointing RINO's to executive positions in his administration.

Even with some obvious shortcomings, President Trump needs a majority in both the House and Senate to achieve his legislative program. The Democrats have turned into a posse of deranged lunatics who favor illegal invaders to natural citizens. How could any lucid voter support the destroyers of our own nation?

Do not be duped into staying at home, go to the polls and vote your support for the Trump agenda. If you are willing to encourage a RESIST open warfare in Congress, your vote for Democratic Socialism will seal the fate of the Republic. It is the Empire that needs to be dismantled, not the merchant economy. Trump is the last chance to revitalize the middle class. The Senate will go GOP; it is up to you to achieve a House majority.
