    I don't think there's any question about that.

    However, the candidates endorsed by openly socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez did not fare as well.

    -- Michigan’s Islamist Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Abdul El-Sayed, lost to Gretchen Whitmer
    -- Cori Bush in Missouri’s 1st District lost to William Lacy Clay
    -- Fayrouz Saad in Michigan’s 11th Congressional District came in 4th (out of 5 candidates)

    Watch out if they find a bunch of votes in the trunk of a car like Al Franken.

    The math for the Dems to take over the House (they need +23 seats) involves more than them just winning R-seats. They also have to hold their own seats.

    One place Ds could lose are two House seats in Minnesota (which has 8 total districts ) where Dem incumbents are leaving office. Trump carried both districts by ~15 points, even though Hillary narrowly won the state overall (it hasn't gone for a R pres since Nixon).

    The two seats that opened up are the 1st, where Tim Walz decided to run for Gov, and the 8th where 74-year-old Rick Nolan retired rather than face a difficult re-election. Both barely hung on in 2016.

    In addition to these two spots, Rs have a good shot at flipping Dem districts in Arizona, Florida, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania.

    170 voters in the Ohio 12th race were ‘Over 116 Years Old.’
    While the world’s oldest person is listed at 115 (and may post here)

    ".... many of the voters on Ohio’s rolls list their birthdays as Jan. 1, 1800, making them 218 years old. Clearly something is amiss.

    For four years now, Democrats in Ohio have been fighting efforts to prevent voter fraud, and it is easy to see why. In June, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in favor of Ohio’s system for purging ineligible voters from the rolls, dealing a tough blow to Ohio Democrats.

    If voter ID laws are passed and implemented as a result of that Supreme Court ruling, those 170 impossibly old voters would no longer be able to cast ballots — and that is something the fraudulent Democrats of the state desperately want to avoid....."

    So Ben Shapiro challenged the socialist girl to a debate
    She responding by equating political debate to sexual harassment

    If he had offered a man the same, it would not be like catcalling.
    Are men no longer allowed to challenge a woman on politics in the same manner as a man?
    How can men and women work together in politics if a debate challenge is equated with catcalling?
    Can a male candidate no longer debate his female opponent politician?

    Are conservatives more infatuated with Occasio-Cortez than progressives?

    We're more fascinated to see just how stupid somebody on the left has to be before you rebuke them.

    I think we're worried that a large block of voters will be swayed by her empty promises of freebies that she can't possibly deliver.

    I heard a piece on the radio that some organization calculated that if she was able to implement every promise she has made, it would take $48 trillion over 10 years or 87% of the GDP over that period.

    She's not a progressive? That's interesting...

    I've already rebuked many of her positions (eg. Free college, guaranteed housing) when someone posted a Hannity graphic. Is there a reason you expect me to "own" this candidate just because some primary voters in a NY precinct nominated her?

    Maybe you can point me to your and the Trump supporters crowd (they all cheered the quoted post) rebuke of Trump. "Space Force" was low hanging fruit but the result was a swing and miss. SH 4 - Trump Supporters 0 :)

    I didn't say she wasn't progressive but rather Conservatives care more about her than liberals. Do a quick Google search for Occasio-Cortez and count up how many conservative site links vs. progressive site links you get. Extremists love to talk about the other sides extremists and avoid their own. More mirrors are needed.

    My sincere apologies, Husker. The "you" in my statement referred to the left in general, not you specifically.

    My bad. I may be a social liberal but also lean fiscal conservative. There isn't enough money to pay for these programs. If there is money, I'd rather focus on the national debt.

    So would I. Think of what we could do with all the money that currently goes just to pay interest on the debt.

    Ted was in Temple and took some questions
    A woman spoke up who said she was a “refugee” from Chicago.
    Cruz told her:

    “My family came from Cuba, so we both have experience fleeing communist regimes.”

    Ted Cruz has a good sense of humor.

    It appears the democrats are reaching back to the oldies by reviving their Big Tent campaign for 2018

    Republican candidate for a Florida House seat get's caught lying about her degree. She even displayed a forged degree over the weekend when the news officially broke. After her spokesman decried the "fake news" she finally admitted that she never received her degree, although did attend Miami U in Ohio. Her statement? "I never intended to mislead or decieve..." Uh, mam...i think that's exactly what you intended by forging a diploma. Primary is 8/28 and she's not dropping out of the race.

    Per usual, Dems started it (Lena Guerrero).

    She is hot though. Why lie about this? To quote Sam Kinison hot chicks can basically say, "thank you God, I don't have to go to school."

    Space Force is a dumb name, but the threat that Trump was trying to address is real. Both the Russians and Chinese are developing weapons that can be used to disable our satellites and reduce the effectiveness of any military response we might make. The next war will spill over into space, no doubt about it. Here's a CNBC link (I figured you might trust them) on the subject.

    Russia and China are developing 'destructive' space weapons, US intelligence warns

    Could you imagine the media outcry if these allegations had been leveled against a Republican? It would be 24/7 on CNN -- and they would not be concerned if the allegations were accurate, they would just head down the road with them, as they do every day

    “In the middle of 2017, I was using my moms computer trying to download something and I clicked on a file, I found over 100 text and twitters messages and video almost 2 min long that showed Keith Ellison dragging my mama off the bed by her feet, screaming and calling her a ‘f**king *****’ and telling her to get the f**k out of his house,” Austin claimed.​

    This guy is the co-chair of their entire Party
