    My takeaways are these:

    1. Trump is more interested in increasing the number of Republicans in the Senate than in the House. Sure, the Dems got control of the purse strings, but Trump can VETO every law they try to pass. The real power is in the Senate which Trump can use to appoint more Supreme Court justices, and the House CANNOT stop him. All the House can do is whine and cry about it. I suspect that Trump expected to lose the House, but decided it was more important to play the Dems for the fools that they are and let them take the House. Basically, the Dems wasted their resources claiming the House rather than ignoring the House and going full bore for the Senate. Looks almost like a classic divide and conquer strategy by Trump.

    2. Now that the Dems have the house, Trump can blame them when the stock markets crash next October (2019). Rightly or wrongly, Trump is credited with the current state of the stock markets. When the markets crash next year, Trump can point fingers at the Dems thereby most likely guaranteeing that he will get a second term. Again, whether purposely or by accident, Trump wins by having the Dems in control of the purse strings when the economy crashes. He can shift to being the Knight in White Armor who cleans up the mess.

    3. I never bothered watching politics before Trump. It was a VERY BORING subject. Nothing but lies, lies, and more lies and never knowing which lie to believe. Trump has turned politics on its head and all of a sudden I and thousands of others are avid watchers of politics. Politics with Trump around are NOT boring and will NEVER be boring. I kind of dread the day when he is gone and politics is again a VERY BORING subject.

    I am the opposite, I've given up on politics. I don't watch, read, listen to any media outlet (liberal or conservative). I wonder if the fatigue that I was experiencing (starting back in 2017) is wide spread. I am really tired of all the craziness that's going on. Don't need that stress in my life.

    It is very important that Trump has engaged voters who previously found politics boring. However, the most significant change that I have seen (as someone who has followed politics for decades much like a rabid sports fan follows sports teams) is that Trump is the first president in modern times who is not beholden to the big money interests and, therefore, is trying to implement the EXACT policies that he promised on the campaign trail. Never before since I have been following politics beginning in the 1960's, has a president actually kept his promises from the campaign trail. It is refreshing and is what is causing The Swamp (Democrats, bureaucrats, lamestream media, lobbyists, leftists, etc.) to lose its collective mind. They, too, have never seen anything like this and it is freaking them out. Fun to watch!

    That is a goal of The Swamp. They are specifically trying to do everything and anything they can to make conservatives and independents get disgusted by their craziness and ignore politics so that they can go back to getting their way without having to win elections or the popular consensus. They know that their Leftist ideas have been proven wrong time after time and that they cannot win in debates or rational discussions (just ask any socialist about Venezuela these days) so they wear genital hats, chase politicians/administration staff out of restaurants, etc., in a desperate attempt to win back the power that they crave.

    Bad people succeed when good people stay uninvolved.

    The other day I turned on the radio to hear what Glenn is saying now about Trump. I was surprised, because Glenn has gone 180. He's actually supporting and defending Trump now. Not sure what to make of it. Is it for real or is it just for the ratings?

    If you recall, this is what Trump said about him back in 2016 (and that's when the personal vendetta started):

    "This really dopey guy ... this dopey guy, Glenn Beck, he looks like hell. No, he's like a dope. And I've watched him cry on television all the time. He's doing very badly. His thing is falling apart. His company is falling apart..."

    I have not followed Beck since he left Fox News. However, given Trump's popularity among the vast majority of Republicans and conservatives, it seems logical to me that he would have to convert from a Never Trumper to a supporter. Kind of like Lindsay Graham, right now. You have to play to your audience.

    Of course, Trump has accomplished so much of the conservative agenda that it is hard, from a pure policy perspective, to be against Trump, too. Cut taxes, 2 Supreme Court justices (imagine if Billary had appointed them!!!), regulations cut, economy roaring, employment at historic levels, including for blacks and Hispanics, NKorea, Canada/Mexico trade agreement, consumer confidence strong, etc., etc. Hard to argue when someone in your own party has racked up such successes. Along these lines, Mittens Romney really hurt himself this week. He will be the darling of the lamestream media, of course, but he has really damaged himself with his own party (other than the RINO's, of course.)

    You know, it would be comical if it were not so scary. With the results of socialism on full display right in our backyard (Venezuela), the Left continues to push it as a viable alternative. Of course, it suits them because socialism, communism, etc., gives more power to the elites running the government, but it is frightening how the low information voters and their ilk cannot see the forest for the trees. Yes, Ocasio-Cortez is a cute empty-head that is quite photogenic, but the fact that someone as clueless as her has won a seat in Congress based on failed socialist policies is a symptom of a disease that is infecting some of the populace. We can only hope that it shrivels as fast as the Venezuelan economy has over the past couple of years, but I doubt it.

    Can someone advise as to why the Trump administration has not been pressing its appeal of the liberal federal judge who stayed Trump's order to cancel the Kenyan's protection of the DACA illegal immigrants? If Trump was clear to start rounding them up and deporting them, he would have the leverage to get as much money as he wanted for the Wall. The Dem's were just about to cave to Trump on the Wall then they got one of their co-conspirators on the bench to bail them out of a bad situation for them. That Swamp judge handed down his bogus decision that the next president cannot cancel the executive order of a past one over a year ago, I believe.

    Should easily be appealed and Trump will win on this one. Executive orders are the clear prerogative of the current President and he has broad latitude in writing and cancelling them. Why is he not going in this direction? I must be missing something.

    The energy in the Democrat party is clearly with the wacko leftists and that is going to make for a very interesting primary as the entire clown car of candidates try to outdo each other in inspiring the wacko's. I think that the Establishment/Swamp Democratic leadership is actually horrified by this because they realize that their 2020 candidate is going to make Crazy Bernie look like a centrist and they dare not do what they did to bolster Billary when it was Comrade Bernie who should have been the candidate but for the Super Delegates who conspired/colluded to make Billary the nominee. They cannot do that again which means they are going to put up a totally crazy Leftist as their candidate which will ensure that Trump gets re-elected again. Even Fauxcahontas (aka, Lie-awatha) is not "lefty" enough for these radicals.

    Schultz, the Starbucks liberal nutcake, has recognized what is going on and realized that he could never win in the Democratic primaries and that is why he is thinking of running as an independent (if he does, it too will be a big boost for Trump as he draws away some of the inevitable anti-Trump vote.)

    BTW, the VA governor who is in hot water over his yearbook photo: my money is on the Left having outed him. Why? Because he made what is a cardinal sin for Leftists: he actually told the truth about one of their sacred issues which is abortion. All Leftists know that you have to lie, obfuscate, deny, etc., or their crazy policies would be recognized for the trash that they are. It is unforgivable that one of their own would break that rule and tell the truth about a horrific abortion law that they were hoping to get passed under the radar screen. He had to go, as a result.

    LOL, so, the "gaslighting" has begun in the media over the Russian collusion hoax investigation. Reports are leaking out that Mueller has nothing, the rabid Democrat lawyers on his team have begun to flee the sinking ship, and now the lamestream media is cautioning that the Left "is going to be disappointed" with Mueller, no one ever said that there was Russian collusion, etc., etc. For two years, it has been non-stop drum beating from the lamestream media on Russian collusion and now they are faced with the obvious fact that, 1.) Russia did not affect a single vote, never mind tip the election and 2.) Trump did not collude with them, anyway. Note that what has been long ignored that Trump could have colluded with Russia or China or any country for that matter and it would not be a crime, anyway. But I digress...

    Bottomline: this has been a two-year attempt by the Kenyan and the Swamp to cover up and distract from the actual crimes that they committed leading up to the 2016 election when they abused the FISA courts, corrupted the DOJ (just like they did with the IRS) and more to try to help Billary win the election. Of course, now they are counting on the short attention spans of the low information voters, the spinelessness of the RINO's, and the collusion of the lamestream media to have this all quietly go away. I hope that the new Attorney General gets serious about investigating and rooting out this corruption and perp-walking as many of the major players, as possible. And, yes, that includes the Kenyan and Billary.

    For the low information voters and others whose only source of "news" is the lamestream/fake news media and who are today scratching their heads as to how Trump could have been completely vindicated by a Special Prosecutor who hired a team of angry Democrats hell bent on finding collusion or obstruction, it is time to understand what has been going on for two years. Actually, it started well before Trump was elected when the Kenyan was able to corrupt the DOJ and FBI (much like he had done earlier with the IRS) and turn them into a political weapon in which they fraudulently got FISA warrants and took other illegal steps to spy on the Trump campaign to help their candidate, Crooked Hillary. They did so quite boldly and often crudely because they assumed that Hillary would win and all of their nefarious activities would be quietly covered up by her.

    When Trump surprised all by winning the election, they knew that their illegal actions (going all the way up to the Kenyan) would not be covered up and they could be in deep trouble. Hence, they came up with the completely fake story that Trump had colluded with Russians as way to distract from their wrongdoings and keep Trump and his team busy with this nonsense instead of digging into the real election crimes perpetrated by the Swamp on behalf of the Clinton Crime family. That is why the Special Prosecutor could find nothing, despite his nasty tactics: there was nothing there to find because it was a complete fairy tale to try to distract from the real crimes that were committed by the Kenyan and his Swamplings.

    My hope is that the Attorney General and his Inspector General will now focus on the real 2016 campaign crimes and criminals.
