OK you’re the Democrats hoping to create a blue wave. You have spent two years insisting that Donald Trump is evil incarnate and last week the entire MSM and parts of the deep state have insisted that Donald Trump is a traitor but your message doesn’t seem to be resonating with the voters in the swing districts you need to take the house, the Senate map is an impossibility and the new Supreme Court vacancy can’t help but get conservative voter to turn out for senate races. Even worse the economy continues to zoom along raising all boats, including black and “Hispanic” voters who remember the lean years under Obama.
You have one thing going for you however, your base is energized and angry, so as long as your opponents are not you just might be able to turn out enough voters in enough districts to make things work out.
So to claim a victory in the house and declare a mandate however shakey, all you have to do is make sure that the very patriotic working class white voters in the swing house districts who turned out for Donald Trump are not affected by key senate races, are not energized to vote for the GOP on election day, particularly not by anyone who is viewed as allies of their faces in congress:
and we especially don’t want them to be seen muscling folks:
Because the last thing we need is one of the faces of the party having to disavow supporters burning US flags:
U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters said that the counterprotesters who burned and stomped on an American flag outside her California office this week, while exercising their right to express themselves, were also acting to further “their own agenda.”
And the only thing worse than the face of our leaders having to disavow our friends burning flags is to have the whole NFL kneeling stuff blow up during the season around election time to the consternation of the fans.
The NFL and National Football League Players Association have agreed to halt enforcement of rules regarding the new national anthem policy while the two sides work on a resolution.
The league and its players union issued a joint statement late Thursday, hours after The Associated Press reported that Miami Dolphins players who protest on the field during the anthem could be suspended for up to four games under a team policy issued this week.
because that would give Trump a chance to respond
US President Donald Trump again goaded the NFL over its handling of controversial national anthem protests on Friday, a day after the league said it would hold off on enforcing a new policy.
“The NFL National Anthem Debate is alive and well again – can’t believe it!,” Trump tweeted.
“Isn’t it in contract that players must stand at attention, hand on heart? The $40,000,000 Commissioner must now make a stand.
and this would keep the story alive all the way though election day and that will be the end of the big blue wave.
and finally with Immigration the biggest issue according voters we certainly don’t want sitting senators talking about abolishing ICE
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said Sunday that the “first thing” Democrats should do if they flip the House and Senate is to “get rid of” Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
“So when we flip the House and flip the Senate, I think the first thing we should do is deal with the children who have been separated from their families at the border. I think we should get rid of ICE,” Sen. Gillibrand said at New York City’s OZY Fest 2018.
I mean cripes the only thing worse for us would be if they were talking gun control or more socialized medicine:
Gillibrand wants to push through a whole package of gun-control laws, including one aimed at something called “large magazine clips.” It’s great to see ignorance so enthusiastically on display in public by elected officials, right? Then, after acknowledging that the federal government takeover of health insurance markets failed badly in ObamaCare, Gillibrand then advises that Democrats want the federal government to take the whole thing over with “Medicare for All.”
But lucky for the Democrats Trump’s enemies certainly aren’t stupid enough to do and say stuff like this are they?
