also saw 2 promising polls for the republicans

in Arizona a new poll has the republican with a 6 point lead , first time I've seen a poll showing that race not close or with the democrat slightly ahead


also a Nevada poll that has incumbent republican senator Heller ahead by 2 points , also one of the first Nevada polls I've seen that has him ahead , most showed the democrat leading

both these polls were done for more liberal networks ABC and NBC not fox news polls

( Bloomberg also reregistered as a democrat , although I have to admit I'd be more comfortable with him as president than Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton , sanders is far too left wing if not an open socialist and Clinton is just too bitter at America to ever be president at this point )



Bloomberg re-registers as Democrat amid rumors of 2020 presidential run

Michael Bloomberg is back -- in the Democratic Party, that is.



The former New York City mayor re-registered as a Democrat Wednesday, sharing the news to Instagram amid rumors he's planning to launch a 2020 presidential bid.


"At key points in U.S. history, one of the two parties has served as a bulwark against those who threaten our Constitution. Two years ago at the Democratic Convention, I warned of those threats," Bloomberg said. "Today, I have re-registered as a Democrat -- I had been a member for most of my life -- because we need Democrats to provide the checks and balance our nation so badly needs."


Bloomberg has drifted between political parties throughout his life -- going from Democrat to Republican to independent to, now, Democrat again. He served as New York City's mayor for three terms and has twice flirted with running for president as an independent candidate.



He has not said when he might announce a decision on running for president.

Bloomberg supported Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, reportedly calling Donald Trump, the eventual president, "a dangerous demagogue." He also reportedly plans to spend at least $80 million to help the Democrats win back control of the House in the midterm elections.

( Hillary Clinton is showing once again , what type of a loser she really is . coming close to encouraging violence against republicans , we cannot be civil ? what is that suppose to mean )



Hillary Clinton: Democrats 'cannot be civil' with Republicans anymore




Alex Pappas By Alex Pappas | Fox News



Hillary Clinton ridicules Kavanaugh's Senate testimony

Former Democratic presidential candidate bashes Judge Kavanaugh and President Trump.

Hillary Clinton, in a television interview Tuesday, rejected the idea that Democrats should be “civil” with Republicans in the age of Donald Trump, embracing a more confrontational and aggressive political approach.


“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton said.


Speaking to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee said, “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”


Clinton’s comments come amid escalating attacks against Republican lawmakers and Trump administration officials by left-wing activists.


Republican Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., said Sunday his wife had received a graphic text message with a video depicting a beheading, after Gardner voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Before and after the vote, thousands of demonstrators stormed the halls of Congress and steps of the Supreme Court to protest Kavanaugh.

Last week, Democratic intern Jackson Cosko, who recently worked as an unpaid intern for Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, also was arrested for posting the personal information of Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Orrin Hatch, R-Utah on Wikipedia -- including their home addresses.

During the Kavanaugh battle, two female activists cornered Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., in an elevator and screamed at him, with one of them repeatedly demanding he look at her as she accused him of suggesting her own sexual assault “doesn’t matter.”

And days earlier, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and his wife Heidi were hounded out of a restaurant by protesters peppering the senator with questions about Kavanaugh and chanting “we believe survivors” and “cancel Kavanaugh.”

The tactic of hounding lawmakers and Trump officials out of restaurants became more prevalent in June, when White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen were driven out of restaurants amid the backlash over the separation of illegal immigrant families at the border.

Such confrontations were encouraged by Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., who days later called on supporters to confront Trump officials in public spaces.

“If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” she told a crowd.

This week, Republicans have been pushing back against such tactics. Some have pointed to the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., at a Republican baseball practice last year as a reminder of how heated rhetoric can lead to much worse.

Kelley Paul, the wife of Sen. Rand Paul, revealed that she now keeps a loaded gun by her bed after her family has “experienced violence and threats of violence at a horrifying level.”

( there are predictions the democrats are going to lose it , if they don't win the mid terms . as they've already decided in there own minds that there going to win and then start impeaching whoever they don't like )



Limbaugh: Dems 'May Lose It' If They Don't Retake House for Potential Trump Impeachment

D.C. may be 'uninhabitable for a while.'



Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh said Washington, D.C. maybe become "uninhabitable for a while" if the Democrats do not retake the House in November's midterm elections.

On his show Tuesday, Limbaugh explained that Democrats are hoping to impeach President Trump and Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh if they control the House.

If that doesn't happen, Limbaugh said that Democrats may "lose it."



“[Democrats are] already planning to impeach Kavanaugh and Trump, and if that doesn’t happen, I really think they may lose it” –Rush Limbaugh pic.twitter.com/GqDuXxskFa

— FOX & friends (@foxandfriends) October 10, 2018

“I think we haven’t seen the meltdown that is going to happen among many elected Democrats: the charges of a rigged election, of Russian interference, that Trump did it again, anything they can come up with," Limbaugh said.

“They are so, so certain they’re gonna win this, they’ve already banked on the win," he continued. "They’re already planning to impeach Kavanaugh and Trump. And if that doesn’t happen, I really think they may lose it all and very quickly.”

The "Fox & Friends" anchors agreed, with Brian Kilmeade saying average Americans care most about health care and about issues that impact them every day.

Ainsley Earhardt predicted that enthusiasm among Republican voters will closely rival Democrats' enthusiasm after the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings.

some new polls show the democrats leading some senate races but these are all seats they already hold ( incumbents running for re election ) and were expected to win , so no real surprise here . although other polls have shown the Minnesota special race to be much closer , that was Al Frankens old seat


- Wisconsin - 10 point lead


- Ohio - 18 point lead


- Minnesota special - 16 point lead


- Minnesota - 30 point lead for klobuchar


- Connecticut - 15 point lead


- Rhode Island - 24 point lead


the problem for democrats this senate election is they need to have a great night , not just a good night to take control of the senate . there is so many more democratic seats up for re election , there faced with a uphill battle .

real clear currently says there is 49 republican seats nearly certain at this point , and that does not include Tennessee a likely republican win , or Nevada , Arizona , Florida , Indiana , Montana or Missouri . where democratic and republican candidates are virtually tied at this point

for the democrats to take control of the senate , they'd need to win 27 of the available senate seats and hold the republicans to only 7 wins . that would be an extremely lopsided election night , they'd also need to win senate seats in 11 states that trump won , most of which he's still popular in .

( its disgusting that high profile democrats are openly calling for violence and harassment of republicans , what if this situation was the other way around ? could you imagine the outrage from the liberal media ? if the wife of a high profile democrat got a death threat from a republican supporter ? )


Rep. Steve Scalise: When Eric Holder, other Dems call for violence, that's a direct threat to our democracy



Rep. Steve Scalise OPINION By Rep. Steve Scalise | Fox News



This summer, California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters called on her supporters to harass cabinet officials. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that you “cannot be civil” with members of the Republican Party. And Wednesday, videotape was released of former Attorney General Eric Holder telling a Democratic audience at a campaign rally in Georgia on Sunday that they should “kick” Republicans when they perceive them as “going low.”


Despite the continued reports of politically motivated threats or violence, Democratic Party leaders have worked to keep this anger burning and incite even more harassment and violence.


Beginning with my own near-death experience at the hands of a deranged shooter who sought to assassinate a baseball field of Republicans, there is a growing list of violent or threatening actions taken against conservatives by Democrats.

•Ashley Kavanaugh, Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s wife and his daughters received multiple credible threats.
•Dana Loesch, NRA spokeswoman, received death threats against her children on Twitter.
•Rep. Diane Black, R-Tenn., received such a threatening phone call that the man has now been indicted.
•Jamie Gardner, wife of Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., wife, received a text of a beheading after the vote to confirm Justice Kavanaugh.
•Several Republican Senators had their personal information, including home addresses, posted to Wikipedia for threatening purposes by a Democrat House staffer.
•Congressman Clay Higgins (R-La.) received threatening phone calls that led to a man’s arrest.
•Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kent., and his wife Kelly Paul have both received credible threats that have led to arrests.
•Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and his wife, as well as White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders, were chased out of restaurants.
•Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was confronted by protesters and harassed out of a DC restaurant.
•Rudy Peters, a Republican California Congressional candidate, was nearly stabbed while campaigning.
•My office has continued to receive threats against my life that have led to arrests.
•A female pro-life activist was violently assaulted by a man that has now been found guilty of eight counts of assault for this and similar incidents.

And this list goes on. The threats and the violence have not let up and instead of seeing my Democrat colleagues calling for an end, there have been calls for their supporters to keep going, to do even more to threaten Republicans.


In America, we win battles at the ballot box, not through mob rule or intimidation.

As a survivor of a politically motivated attack, it is tragic to think this is an acceptable state of political discourse in our country. I refuse to stand for this and I will continue to call for an end to it. A healthy, strong democracy is not possible if anyone lives in fear of expressing their views.

If this is going to stop, it must start with Democratic leaders, who need to condemn, rather than promote these dangerous calls to action.

In America, we win battles at the ballot box, not through mob rule or intimidation. While it’s clear many Democrats refuse to accept the election of President Trump, if they want change, they need to convince people with their ideas and actually win elections, rather than call for violent resistance, harassment, and mob rule.

As I see, working in Congress every day, it’s possible to agree without being disagreeable and address political differences in a civil manner. That’s an example leaders need to continue to set.

Instead, when Democratic leaders like Eric Holder call for violence, that is a direct threat to our democracy.

I hope he and others think long and hard about the world they are creating and the impact they are leaving on this country.

As the oldest democracy, our country has long been heralded as the freest country in the world. It doesn’t feel so free if anyone lives in fear for holding or expressing a differing opinion.

Let’s end this violence and return to civility before someone else gets hurt.

Steve Scalise represents Louisiana's first Congressional district and serves as the Republican majority whip. On June 14, 2017, he was shot by a deranged Bernie Sanders supporter while practicing with fellow Republicans for a Congressional baseball game. He nearly died, and underwent multiple surgeries before returning to the House on Sept. 28, 2017, to bipartisan applause.

This is awful. We have the case of Hillary endorsing the incivility ... implicitly including violence.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZzXS8r4SpnQ

The social aggression is coming from the campuses and activist groups formed during Obama's time in office. Any group that is using chants effectively has met and practised before their demonstration. The participants seem to me to be True Believers, but also recruited, trained, and provided with transport. Many of them receive money.

On the political stage, the Democrats keep on upping the ante, hoping for the Trump side to collapses. We should prepare ourselves (as spectators) for an epic confrontation.

I don't think the point is to decry it First, we are only spectators. Second, it is more important to understand what is going on. This is going to affect us, if only because we are so heavily integrated into certain American markets.

It would be great if this became a forum where concerned people made serious, fact-based comments.

Because I can't remember a single case where Republicans protested and de-platformed speakers from their opponent's side. Please, point those out.

Whoa... your memory is short or non-existent ?

Can you recall Charlottesville? It was so long ago...almost a year and half ago now.
How about the Colorado abortion shooting?

No?

Ok..Kansas racist shooting ? Lafayette movie shooting ? Charleston church shooting ?

NO?

LOL!

The only trouble is ... Charlotteville wasn't a Republican show ... the demonstration was never allowed to take place, but it was the police that stopped it because Antifa showed up and was precipitating violence ... The car-killer was a deranged Democrat.

A crazy guy goes into a church?

Not good examples. Find one.

no high profile republican has come out and said its ok to kick democrats , or it be ok to threaten there family members or harass them if you see them in a public restaurant

people on the left are actually encouraging there members to act in such a manner and think that its ok , that this is the new normal for how people treat politicians they don't like


if trump had come out with the same comment as Hilary said the other day , the media would of been all over it . it was pure craziness , that woman is losing it


all of this leads me to suspect the " blue wave " is turning into a " blue ripple " and the democrats don't know how to turn things around at this point


new senate polls out today highlight this point , always a long shot but some democrats actually though a couple months ago they might beat Ted Cruz in Texas , now he is 9 point ahead

Nevada also looked like a sure thing for the democrats , now incumbent republican Heller is 2 points ahead in the last 2 polls ( one from ny times and other NBC ) ,

a republican win here would be devastating for the democrats as it was there best chance at taking a seat from the republicans

GOP now on the offensive in several Senate races, could expand majority even if House flips


Gregg Re By Gregg Re | Fox News


On Wednesday, Martha talks to politically knowledgeable Chris Stirewalt about the upcoming elections and how the midterms are shaking out so far across the country, along with a small update on how things are faring in the South with Hurricane Michael, as Melania weighs in on #metoo.

With less than a month until the midterm elections, Republicans are now going on the offensive in several Senate races as part of a reinvigorated effort not only to hold onto their slim majority in the upper chamber but to expand it significantly.


Meanwhile, analysts are warning that Democrats, who extensively focused in recent months on longshot bids to derail Republican candidates in reliably red states, may have neglected critical Midwest battleground states in a manner reminiscent of the 2016 presidential election.

Three pivotal Senate races have shifted in the GOP's favor in Fox News' latest Power Rankings, with Texas and North Dakota now considered likely Republican wins, and Tennessee changing from a toss-up to the lean-Republican column.

In Texas, a new Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday shows Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke trailing incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz by 9 points. "Senator Cruz would have to suffer a major collapse for him to lose" his Senate seat, said Peter Brown, the poll's assistant director.

Those results mirror a Quinnipiac poll from several weeks ago, suggesting that O'Rourke's momentum has flatlined.


"Sen. Cruz would have to suffer a major collapse for him to lose."
— Quinnipiac University poll director Peter Brown
And in another high-profile race, Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., has surged to a double-digit lead over challenger Phil Bredesen, according to an in-progress New York Times poll. A CBS News poll last week showed Blackburn leading Bredesen by 8 points.

Bredesen last week secured the endorsement of music superstar Taylor Swift, who said Blackburn's voting records "appalls and terrifies" her. Bredesen broke with his fellow Democrats and voiced support for then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as a series of uncorroborated sexual misconduct allegations were leveled against him.


How might market decline impact 2018 midterm elections?
Video

Analysts say that Democrats' faltering bids to retake two seats in traditionally red states has parallels to the 2016 presidential race, when breathless news reports suggested Hillary Clinton had a chance at winning Texas.

"Liberal activists and online media [are] touting Democratic chances and paying more attention to stretch cases like Texas and Tennessee, when the Democrats need to protect vulnerable incumbents in states like Missouri and Indiana," Michigan State University political science professor Matt Grossman told Fox News.

"That reminded me of talks about possible Democratic wins in Arizona, Georiga, and Texas in 2016, when Clinton had to protect the Midwest states," he added.

Fox News ranks the Senate races in Indiana and Missouri as toss-ups, as vulnerable incumbent Democratic Sens. Joe Donnelly and Claire McCaskill, respectively, try to fend off challengers in states President Trump won by double-digits in 2016. Both voted against Kavanaugh, which has become a central issue in both contests.


The Kavanaugh effect appears to have had the biggest effect on another vulnerable incumbent Democrat, North Dakota's Heidi Heitkamp. She trails Republican challenger Kevin Cramer by 12 points. Last month, before Heitkamp voiced her reluctance to support Kavanaugh, he was up by only 4 points.


“That spectacle proved to be perhaps the greatest political gift I’ve been given in a very long time,” Cramer said.


"The most recent polling suggests it’s going to be a tale of two elections."
— Republican strategist Bruce Mehlman
And a new poll in another red state, West Virginia, shows incumbent Democrat Joe Manchin leading Attorney General Patrick Morrisey by just one point. But the poll, which was commissioned by national Republicans and the Morrisey campaign, is an outlier. Manchin's last-minute support for Kavanaugh, who is highly popular in West Virginia, has become a key issue in the campaign, with Morrisey calling Manchin's vote a "craven political calculation."

Grossman, who also directs Michigan State's Institute for Public Policy and Social Research, cited an additional challenge for moderate senators like Heitkamp and Manchin who often buck their party: Congressional races are increasingly becoming nationalized. He cited a variety of factors to explain that trend, including greater interest in national media sources, President Trump's larger-than-life profile, and more cohesive top-down party messaging.

While indicators are strong for Republicans in the Senate, the map is also working in the GOP's favor. There are nine Senate seats currently held by Democrats in states that went for Trump in 2016 but just one Republican incumbent running in a state carried by Clinton.

That state, Nevada, is home to a tight race that Fox News currently considers a toss-up, as incumbent Sen. Dean Heller faces off against Jacky Rosen. And a state that Trump carried in 2016, Arizona, is also considered a toss-up, as Democrat Kyrsten Sinema has polled narrowly ahead of Republican Martha McSally to replace outgoing Republican Sen. Jeff Flake.


Meanwhile, in the House, where all seats are up for grabs, signs are less favorable for the GOP. A new poll from Quinnipiac University showed that 49 percent of voters preferred that the Democrats take back Congress, compared with 42 percent for Republicans.

“The most recent polling suggests it’s going to be a tale of two elections, with center-left voters powering Democratic gains in the House and center-right voters expanding Republicans’ Senate majority," Republican strategist Bruce Mehlman told Fox News.


Mehlman pointed to other signs of a possible impending "blue wave" in the House. For example, Trump's approval rating is roughly consistent with that of other presidents' in recent decades when their party saw major losses in Congress. Presidents with higher approval ratings tend to see their party retain more seats.

Still, there were some signs of resurgence this week for Republicans in the House, as well. Florida’s highly competitive 27th Congressional District, which Clinton won by a 20-point margin over Trump in 2016, had been considered one of the easiest seats in the country for Democrats to pick up just months ago.


But the race to replace retiring Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is now only a "Lean Democrat" race according to Fox News' latest Midterm Power Rankings. Donna Shalala, the Democratic candidate, is facing a spirited challenge from her lesser-known GOP opponent, Spanish-language journalist and political rookie, Maria Elvira Salazar.

“This will be the marker for, if and possibly when, the Democrats might pick up the House for the 2018 elections,” said Florida International University political science professor Kathryn DePalo. “If Democrats pick this up, then I think it’ll be a good night for Democrats in Florida and perhaps around the country.”

In a statement to Fox News, a spokesperson for the National Republican Congressional Committee was bullish on the district: "In a district that Clinton won by 20 points, this is shaping up to be a devastating loss for Democrats.”

( the democratic candidate in Arizona is looking weirder and weirder by the day , after claiming to have been raised homeless without hydro even though her parents paid a utilities bill , its now revealed she referred to Arizona as crazy during a speech to liberal activists , she claims to be a moderate but looks more life a far left activist everyday , she'd be the most left wing senator Arizona has seen in decade if not ever )



Arizona Senate hopeful Sinema implied state produced 'crazy' in 2011 speech



Samuel Chamberlain By Samuel Chamberlain | Fox News




US Senate race in dead heat in Arizona

The latest Fox News poll shows Rep. Sinema (D) with a slight 47-45 lead over Rep. McSally (R) among likely voters.

Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., who is running in a tightly contested U.S. Senate race, implied that her home state produced "crazy" in a 2011 speech in which she also promised to advise liberal activists on how to "stop your state from becoming Arizona."


An edited version of Sinema's speech to the Texas Stonewall Democratic Caucus, a Democratic LGBT group in the Lone Star State, was posted on Twitter Thursday by The Reagan Battalion, an anonymous conservative group. A longer version of the speech is available on YouTube.


In the speech, Sinema recounts how she was taught at a young age that Arizona was known for "five Cs: Cattle, copper, citrus, cotton and climate."

"But I would add a sixth 'C,'" added Sinema, then an Arizona state senator. "It's called crazy."


Sinema, a one-time Green Party activist, has fashioned herself as a moderate willing to work with both parties in her contest against fellow U.S. Rep. Martha McSally. The race winner will fill the Senate seat vacated by the retiring Republican Jeff Flake.


"Calling Arizonans crazy and having particular disdain for Republicans when she wants Republicans to vote for her is unbelievable," McSally told reporters at a roundtable with business leaders and Gov. Doug Ducey. "And Arizonans need to know about it."

"She was frustrated that no one in the state legislature was standing up to out-of-state special interests working to take away health care from children, make tuition more expensive, and take job security away from working families," Sinema spokeswoman Helen Hare said in a statement Thursday. "Kyrsten was born here, and will always stand up to outside special interest groups to protect and defend Arizonans."

Sinema gave her speech after Arizona Republicans had passed SB1070, a controversial immigration law that led to nationwide boycotts and concern even among some Arizona Republicans that the Legislature had moved too far right. Those concerns led to a recall against the then-senate president Russell Pearce, whom Sinema blamed in her remarks for much of the discord. She accused Pearce of was carrying hardline immigration bills and other conservative legislation on abortion and health care at the behest of racist anti-immigrant groups and a corporate-backed conservative organization that writes "model legislation" for state lawmakers.

"There's something wrong with the people in public office in Arizona," Sinema said. "People are saying the tea party, the tea party. Those people have been in charge 20 years in Arizona. They're called Republicans."

A Fox News poll taken last month showed Sinema with a two-point lead over McSally, 47 percent to 45 percent. Sinema led McSally by nine points among women, 14 points among voters under age 45 and by 29 points among Hispanic voters.

Democrats appear to be losing the battle for control of the senate , real clear politics has moved Tennessee to leans republican , putting them at 50 seats


the democrats would now need to win all 6 toss up states even to reach a tie , and there is some very tough races in those 6 states , so the odds of winning them all is rather low , 5 of the 6 states also voted for trump with the exception being Nevada


2 new polls so far today


Tenn - 54 Blackburn Rep , 40 Bredesen Dem


Tx - 51 Cruz rep , 43 O'Rourke Dem
