Now that the smoke (and smokescreens) have cleared somewhat from last night, we can stand back and analyse the results. Some Conservatives are feeling low; some on the Left are roaring, but the picture isn't as bad as it looks. There were winners and losers last night, but hardly the Blue Tsunami predicted by the Corporate Media.
Nonetheless, the Corporate Media is spinning the election results as some kind of major turning point in some great NPC uprising.
Not so, though. Though the Democrats regained control of the House, they largely did so at the expense of the Swamp RINOs. The fake Conservatives were the biggest losers of the night. The Republicans who stood with Trump fared well; and, as one pundit noted: the GOP is clearly the Party of Trump now.
The House of Representatives and the Corporate Media are going to be a sideshow for the next two years. Really the transition of power from RINO Ryan to Nancy Pelosi isn't going change much in terms of policy. We're talking here about 'doing nothing' vs. 'aggressive obstructionism'. Trump has accomplished much already without any input from these dunces and he can continue to do so. The biggest problem---besides numerous time-wasting investigations into any allegation against Trump whispered in anybody's ear---will be passing the President's budgetary and tax-reform plans for 2019 and 2020.
With the RINOs out of the way, things are looking positive for 2020 and Trump's second term. The Senate races from yesterday are indicative of future trends. Arizona, Utah, and Tennessee were held by GOP candidates after incumbents retired. Florida, Indiana, North Dakota, and Missouri passed into GOP hands. The only loss came in Nevada---a state which has been shifting Left for years now.
The Abortion Racket suffered two resounding defeats in Alabama and West Virginia. Alabama became the first state to recognize an unborn foetus as human being. West Virginia cut state funding for abortion mills. Alabama also voted to allow the Ten Commandments to be displayed on public property again. In a rare case of Liberals actually learning from their mistakes, Washington voters enacted a prohibition against localities taxing foodstuffs. This is a response to Seattle's disastrous Sweetened Beverage Tax enacted in January.
As Conservatives, the thing for us to do right now is to stay the course. It may not look like it now, but the best is yet to come.
