GOP Q-Anons Are In Total Meltdown Mode After Trusting the Plan Didn't Work

It's so bad mods had to sticky an old thread from 2 weeks ago telling them not to commit any violence lol

Maybe we'll see some Trumpkins blowing Federal Buildings to own the Libs EPIC STYLE.

Also Zodiac Killer made a house call after Senate got more of a GOP Majority.

Gotta watch out for your ribs suddenly violently fracturing when falling, esp when you're old.


If something were to happen I guess Trump would have to choose someone to replace her. Third one it would be.

But... it is all going according to keikaku.

The smoke is clearing from the most expensive midterm elections in American history and the outlines are just becoming visible.

TUCKER CARLSON: Good evening and welcome to Tucker Carlson Tonight. The smoke is clearing from the most expensive midterm elections in American history and the outlines are just becoming visible. The results are confusing. It wasn’t exactly a draw, but both sides can claim victory, and of course they are. In the House, Republicans did slightly worse than average for a midterm. In the Senate they did a little better. Some of the races played out as referendums on the president’s first two years. Others had nothing to do with Trump at all. In some races, hard-edged ideologues won. In others, doughy moderates did. It’s a patchwork. There are no easy takeaways from what happened last night. But there are some useful lessons. That’s what we’d like to spend some time time talking about tonight. What exactly have we learned from 470 individual congressional elections, several big governor’s races and a full year of political debate?

The biggest news is that Democrats just won back the House of Representatives after eight years. They’re thrilled obviously. Yet they don’t appear to have any idea how they did it. As of tonight, there really is no Democratic program or message. There’s no Democratic plan for making the economy stronger or the country safer. There is only Donald Trump, whom they despise. The entire Democratic platform is him. The president is often accused of narcissism, or making everything about himself. But on that point, Democrats agree. They think everything’s about Trump, too. Watch this clip from last night. It’s just become clear that Democrats are going to retake the House. It’s a big moment. A senior Democrat calls the set at MSNBC to announce his party’s top priority, now that they’ve regained power...
Getting Trump’s tax returns. That’s the priority. Not infrastructure, not wages, not the looming threat from China or drug ODs or the shrinking middle class or even health care. But Trump’s tax returns. That’s what Democrats really want. OK. Maybe they’ll get those returns. What then? What will we learn? That a casino owner once employed a clever accountant? That he made less than he claimed he did? Will anyone be shocked by any of that? Will anyone care? Or, as with the Stormy Daniels saga, will voters find themselves titillated for a moment, and then lose interest? What do Trump’s tax returns have to do with them anyway? Their premiums haven’t gone down. It’s just noise.

There’s a simple lesson here. You’d think Democrats would have figured it out. But they haven’t. Congressman Jerry Nadler will likely be the chairman the House judiciary committee. Just today, Nadler was overheard on a train to New York laying out his priorities. First on the list: impeaching Brett Kavanaugh and removing him from the Supreme Court. Apparently that’s what Democrats believe voters really want, more than anything. Congressman Adam Schiff of California, meanwhile, is poised to take over the House Intelligence Committee. He says his main priority come January is intensifying the endless Russia probe. Schiff thinks he can prove that Vladimir Putin somehow stole the 2016 election with a few dozen Facebook ads that nobody saw. Can Schiff really prove that? Who knows? What we can know, for certain, is that nobody outside Washington will care if he does. The entire Russia conversation is irrelevant and dumb. That’s been proven already. Democrats are the only ones who don’t know yet.

As of now, the entire Democratic platform can be summed up in a sentence: “Donald Trump is a bad person.” That’s what they plan to run on in the next presidential election, which incidentally starts today. Good luck with that. It’s a virtual guarantee that Trump will serve a full eight years.

So is all the race talk. Somewhere along the way, Democrats became convinced they could win elections by denouncing voters as racist. The Andrew Gillum campaign tried it in Florida. So did Stacy Abrams’s surrogates in Georgia. It didn’t work either time. In fact it rarely works. Why would it? Here’s a bit of hard-earned knowledge from almost thirty years of covering campaigns: when you call voters immoral, they don’t like it. Yet the left continues to throw out the slur, probably because they enjoy doing it. Here’s ABC’s coverage of the Gillum race last night:


In other words, Andrew Gillum lost because of his skin color. And that’s the fault of people of a certain skin color. You hear things like this all the time. Nobody every bothers to prove any of it. It’s unprovable. That’s the appeal. Racism is anything you don’t like. A racist is anyone in your way. Hurling accusations of bigotry is often the quickest way to get what you want. That’s why they do it. Happened again today:

A few years ago, what you just saw would have been a headline news. An accredited White House reporter calls the president of the United States a white supremacist? Holy smokes. Now it’s just another day on cable news. Nobody really believes the reporter means it. It’s posturing. It’s boring. The claim is losing its power from overuse. Diminishing returns have been reached. If you’ve got a problem with nationalism, why not just argue against nationalism? We all might learn something.

In the meantime, Republicans should understand that Democrats call them bigots not because they believe they are, or even because they care if they are. Al Sharpton and Louis Farrakhan are allowed in the Democratic Party after all. Democrats obviously aren’t too concerned about bigotry. Democrats make the charge because they hope it will bring them power. Power is what they want. It’s all they want. Republicans lost a chamber of congress last night. Nobody rioted. No one blocked intersections or looted liquor stores. Republican consultants didn’t go on TV this morning to question the results or attack the House of Representatives as illegitimate. It didn’t occur to them. It was just an election. You lose sometimes. That’s not how Democrats think. They mean it. They lost a few seats in the senate last night, and already they’re denouncing the senate itself as somehow undemocratic. Watch Joy Behar try to read, and ultimately misread, the party’s talking points on the View today:

...

You can’t gerrymander an entire state of course. Behar may not know that. She probably doesn’t understand what the senate is. But she knows power. Like many Democrats you see on television, she’ll say whatever it takes to get it.

But it’s not just Democrats who should have learned something last night. There were lessons for Republicans too. Here’s one: voters care about campaign promises. If you don’t fulfill them, they’ll notice. In 2016, Republicans promised to build a wall, get rid of Obamacare and defund planned parenthood. They got elected, but they didn’t do any of that. Maybe that’s one reason they lost the house last night.

Here’s another lesson: Immigration matters. Not just on the level of individuals and families and caravans, but over time at the level of entire populations. Immigration changes who lives in a country, and who votes. That’s why it matters. You’d never know this from listening to the coverage of immigration stories. You’d think the question of who comes into your country and under what circumstances was entirely a moral issue, a question of personal decency. Good people are for it. Bad people are against it.

Whatever else that exchange was, it was mostly a diversion from the political reality of immigration. California was once a solidly Republican state. It’s not anymore. Immigration did that. Different people live there, and not surprisingly they vote very differently. Something similar is happening in Nevada, Arizona, Texas, Virginia and many other states, and it was reflected in last night’s vote totals. Democrats know this obviously. That’s why they oppose borders, because it helps them win. Republicans have been slow to pick up on this. They still think immigration policy is about virtue.

Republicans also seem to think their economic message is working. They’re very proud of the tax bill they passed in this congress, the one they will control for a while. There’s nothing wrong with tax cuts, but Republican strategists seem to forget that a huge percentage of Americans don’t even pay federal taxes. By definition they don’t care very much about the cuts. For them and for many others, the economy isn’t measured in stock prices and GDP numbers. Their concerns are more tangible: What does gas cost? Can I afford to live in a safe neighborhood? Will I go bankrupt if I get sick? The party that effectively addresses these questions generally wins. Republicans tend to ignore these questions. That’s a big reason they just lost.

Keep in kind that the Republican Party is the Conservative party. Republicans are supposed to care about families above all. And yet, increasingly the American family is vanishing. Young people can’t afford to get married or have children. Take a look at the numbers some time. They’re shocking. They foretell an ominous future. A country without strong families is a weak country. It’s a volatile, chaotic place, susceptible to political demagoguery. It’s what America is becoming. If you want to stop the slide, support families.

Put another way, if your supposedly conservative economic program doesn’t make it easier for young people to get and stay married, how is it really conservative? If couples are too poor to have kids, and you’re not helping, why should I as a conservative vote for you? I shouldn’t. And I won’t.

Supporting marriage and children is the best, maybe the only way for Republicans to save the country. It will win them elections too. They should start.

What the hell is going on with the election in Arizona and the special election in Mississippi? They still haven't finished counting and it's already 3 days after the election. How did a 0.9% advantage for McSally at 100% votes counted turn into a 0.5% advantage for Sinema at... "---%" votes counted?! What is this? Not sure if it's RCP screwing up or if there are some strange things happening backstage... even if they are counting mail-in votes, it shouldn't take so long. This isn't California we are talking about...

And The Mississippi special election has been at 98% votes counted without any change for the last 3 days. What are the doing?

Dunno how the dems are doing. The sjw violence and political correctness is probably alienating people. Dunno what people think of the "bombings" but the caravan entering the USA seems to be more opposed than supported.

“SJW Violence”? Are you trolling?

In the last weeks leading up to the election we have seen nothing but Far Fight Violence.

The MAGA Bomber? The Anti-Semetic Shooting? Are these SJWs?

And dude...guess what...the United States has this law on Asylum which says that people trying to get into the U.S for Asylum are at least supposed to be heard.

This SCARY caravan that is on its way (still a long way away BTW) is Asylum-seeking individuals who have had their home countries ravaged by War, drugs, and Violence.

Again...the U.S has laws in Asylum!


You okay with having them live next to you then? Maybe you could invite them in for some tea.

I mean statistically and logically it's probably safer to live next to an asylum seeking family than whoever you're living next to right now. Because if an asylum seeking family is caught doing even minor crimes they face not only prison time but deportation so the punishments for them are much harsher and there's a lot more at risk.

Basically what I'm saying is this is a dumb argument.

I apparently just deleted everything I had written after I had commented :\

I'm too lazy to write everything again...

I took what you said the wrong way, I thought you wanted to get rid of voter ID altogether and just let anyone walk in (kinda just what it sounded like to me)... I honestly dont know how that will work either but if there can be an easier way to register and not have it cost money or waste time, then yeah, I'd be all for it.

My dad told me that murderers, rapists, ect cant vote but if anyone spent time for a small crime then they are allowed to vote. I think that might depend on the state tho (I also dont know if thats true or not tho)

I didnt mean to make it sound like I was defending Republicans, it just sounded like your comment was one sided so I just thought to counter it. Someone also commented on how both sides cheat and honestly, they are both fucked up. Not just republicans. I dont know if we can stop both parties from cheating.

I did read up on what voter purging is, I understand why it was implemented, but I can see how it can be used to cheat.


That's what CTRL- z is for. It brings back if you deleted stuff on accident even if it was by the button in the text box.

There is. Automatic registry. Tons of countries do it that way where anyone legible to vote can vote.

It's any felony not just those. Things like copyright violation and possession of a decent amount of drugs is also considered felony charges. How long their ability to vote is taken away duffers by state. Basically sending a digital copy of an anime show to a friend can land you a felony charge.

The US just has a bad voting system overall and a flawed legal system.


ahhh thanks for the tip :)

ohhh that'd be nice. That would make things so much easier. I think a lot of US policies may be out dated as well.

Taxes also can be automatically filed. The US is basically the only country that makes it's citizens do the hard part for them.

sure i wouldn't mind the company.

considering like most countries asylum seekers are closely watched more closely then our own citizens mean they are less likely to actually do anything then your alcoholic neighborhood Gregory who owns a rifle and fires it in the air randomly every 4th of July and you find your car has new dents in it the following morning.....


>_> can i have a new neighbor?

What makes you think they'll be better neighbors than what you currently have?

They haven't been checked out or screened because they aren't applying legally to live there. You could be inviting people with extensive criminal records right where you live.

The White House is not against legal immigration.

That's the thing though, they are applying for legal immigration. That's the whole idea of applying for asylum. They can even legally apply if they enter at a non-specified entry point.

There's literally no basis for saying the caravan or any of the people in it intend to illegally take residence in the United States. In fact if they are able to do that it would just mean that the border patrol and in this scenario the military are so incompetent that they couldn't track a large group of people on foot despite them traveling hundreds of miles and into domestic territory and giving them at least a 2 month warning.

Actually, it's been reported and confirmed that gang members and people with extensive criminal history have taken part in the caravan. Not only by Homeland security but the Mexican government too.

From what I understand, people that are cleared will be granted asylum, but not the whole lot.

From what I understand, people that are cleared will be granted asylum, but not the whole lot.

After reading the DHS report I can concede they confirmed about 270 people with criminal records in total. Out of 7,000 people though that's only 3.8% of the estimated total people but that's also assuming the full group reaches the border. (About 3000 of which have already stopped and applied for visas at Mexico city).

The more likely scenario is they're going to break off and join up with drug cartels in Mexico because the risk factor of coming into the US is too high even with the cover of asylum seekers and the journey on foot is way too much effort. So the point still stands that there isn't really a basis for people who are part of the caravan to plan on taking up illegal residence. For the simple fact that they're too easy to track, the security is too tight and the journey is too difficult that they might not even have significant cover if they do reach the border.

That's a bit tricky because it's not something tied to a specific party of the two major ones. There are people for and against on both sides. More Democrats for than Republicans for the time being it seems though.

It's not even a party issue in half the states, it's decided by proposition/referendum systems. Not to mention in a few decades it won't even be a party issue on the national level considering by then the Republican party will have finished shifting to a much more Libertarian version of its current self due to all the younger Republicans replacing all the older Republicans.

I voted for it as a proposal. Those two thoughts weren't connected.

I voted straight democratic for governor/house/senate, and then I voted for a recreational marijuana proposal in my state.

Recounts in Florida now pretty much over. DeSantis (GOP) will be governor of Florida and current governor of Florida, Agent 47 (GOP), will be a senator of Florida.

Some people are even saying that Florida has become a "red state", though considering how close the elections were, I don't think such a statement has much weight, though fact is that GOP will now control the governor position and both senate seats for Florida.

They also just added like 1.4 million more voters with this election so until those people register or vote it's probably too early to call what color the state is going to be in the future given how close the races were.

https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/2018-midterm-election-forecast/house/

This is it...Tomorrow, Tuesday November 6, 2018, could be one of the most important Midterm Elections in a very long time in this country.

The House, the Senate, and many Governor races throughout the nation will be up for grabs.

As we know, the GOP has been in FULL control of EVERY aspect of government with Donald Trump as the head.

In Trump’s first two years as President we have seen him coddle with and congratulate dictators, spur America’s allies especially Europe nations.

>Disastrous trade tariffs.

>Bring in a very Conservative judge to the Supreme Court which will probably have lasting consequences moving forward if you care about Social Progress in this country.

>A tax cut that in the long run will ONLY help the richest Americans and corporations while continuing to FUCK OVER the middle class.

>We’ve seen him literally separate families who were seeking asylum (which is completely LEGAL to seek asylum in the U.S) because he has a huge irrational HATRED of immigrants.

>We’ve seen Extremism RISE in this country as the nation has become deeply divided...Hate groups have become emboldened with Trump as President...and why not...a man who says “both sides have good people” after ONE side preformed a HATE rally and eventually drove a car into the other side and killed one person!

All of this and I’m not even going to mention the litany of legal troubles the President is still under...for fuck’s sake he’s still under investigation!

So yes...this election has HUGE implications because there can only be one of two results....either the GOP remain in power giving Trump Carte Blanche...

Or...we vote in the OPPOSITION to deny him all of his insane ideas.

Once more here we go again...
