Some People Hate Trump. More People Hate Liberals.

The Karen Handel victory in the Georgia 6th District special election repeats a pattern depressingly familiar to the left.  There have been four special congressional elections since the hated Trump took office, and Democrats have lost all four.  In each contest, the left predicted victory – largely based on what they perceived was hatred of President Trump by ordinary Americans, which would generate “enthusiasm” for the Democrat candidate and drive people in overwhelming numbers to the polls.

GA Vote Says More About Trump Now Than House in ’18

The Georgia 6th District results don’t tell us what will happen in 2018. But they do tell us what is happening right now. In a conversation two weeks before the GA06 election, a Republican strategist involved in the fight mused on the possibility that all the money spent, all the doors knocked, all the phones called, all the accusations hurled — that it might mean nothing when it comes to the crucial question of who will win control of the House of Representatives in 2018.

How’d That Referendum on Trump Work Out?

Monica Showalter, American ThinkerThe special election in the 6th District of Georgia was universally billed “a high-stakes referendum on Trump” in all the much hyped build-up coming from the left and its media allies. Not a local election, not a fluke election. A moment-of-truth Referendum on Trump. After all, weren’t President Trump’s poll numbers down? Didn’t the “resistance” put on a mega-protest show and continue its tantrum in all the days-of-rage riots on college campuses? Wasn’t President Trump engulfed in scandal for colluding with the Russians to win the 2016…

The FBI Is America’s Best Hope Against Trump

Dara Lind, VoxLet’s start by acknowledging something that’s become extremely clear: If anything within Donald Trump’s government brings him down, it’s going to be the FBI. Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey sparked not only a revolt within the organization (and a resulting cascade of leaks about the investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia); it appears to have placed the president himself under investigation for obstruction of justice. … Read the referenced story here: The FBI Is America’s Best Hope Against Trump

Dems Have No Idea How to Win in the Age of Trump

Patricia Murphy, The Daily BeastAfter $50 million and a congressional contest bigger than some presidential primaries, the special election in Georgia’s 6th District to replace Rep. Tom Price ended up where it began, with the House seat still in Republican hands and national Democrats still looking for a way to turn the resistance to Donald Trump into a victory at the polls.

U.S. President Donald Trump boasted Wednesday about Republican success in winning congressional elections this year, the latest in the southern state of Georgia in what was the most expensive race for a seat in the House of Representatives in U.S. history.

Behind the Dems’ Emoluments Lawsuit Against Trump

Jeffrey Toobin, The New YorkerThe nerd caucus of the United States Senate is currently headed by Richard Blumenthal, the Connecticut Democrat, who clerked for Justice Harry Blackmun on the Supreme Court before serving for two decades as his state’s attorney general. (Other members of the group include Mike Lee, of Utah, who clerked for Samuel Alito before he was appointed to the Supreme Court, and Ted Cruz, a law clerk for William Rehnquist, who aspires to greater political heights than caucus membership usually allows.) Still, for all of Blumenthal’s legal…
