U.S. midterm elections: Setback for Trump, but no “blue wave”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Donald Trump was supposed to lose big last night in the U.S. midterm elections. It didn’t happen.  

Trump’s Republicans did lose 27 seats in the 435-seat House of Representatives. But it is not unusual for voters to back away from a president during a midterm election — that is, in the middle of the president’s term.

Trump lost 27 seats. In 2010, half way through his first term, Barack Obama lost 63 seats.

It is a setback. But that ain’t a "blue wave."

The Kavanaugh hearings are one big reason. Not just the maniacs in the official Democrat party, but the maniacs outside, literally banging on the doors of the Supreme Court.

Voters, who'd been told that Donald Trump was crazy, saw what actual crazy looked like. And they backed away from the party of Stormy Daniels and Michael Avenatti.

Trump himself worked very hard, doing rally after massive rally, sometimes more than one a day.

It really made a difference — the states Trump visited tipped into the Republican category.

So Trump held his own against the Democrats. But the real enemy of course is the U.S. media.

But what about our state broadcaster, the CBC, created specifically to promote Canadian culture? They actually sent down their Ottawa political reporters to the U.S., to stir up anti-Trump sentiment.

CTV and the Toronto Star got in on this too, as I'll show you tonight.

The media in Canada doesn’t get a vote, of course. And American journalists only get one vote each, and it’s usually wasted in New York or L.A., which are already overwhelmingly Democrat.

Thank God, at least for now, the decisions are being made in places like Florida, and North Dakota, and Missouri and Indiana.

For now...

NEXT: I'm joined by Joel Pollak of for in-depth analysis of the midterm election results.

Right you are, Tammie. And FISA brings down the House!

The House term is two years, the Senate is 6 years. The Demonrats can expose themselves in the House until 2020. Work for the people or investigate, investigate, try to impeach the President and do nothing for the people. Bills written by the House must be passed by the Senate. Meanwhile the Senate will keep investigating the corrupt rats and it will all be exposed by 2020. The voter fraud in crooked Broward County, Florida (and likely in Arizona) is being exposed now. The President wins with the Senate, and the demonrats LOSE everything.

Ruth Bader-Ginsburg will retire, and President Trump will have another Senate approved Supreme Court Justice soon thereafter. The stage is set.

The relative silence around here suggests the peanut gallery’s only putting in a token effort at accepting spinning this as a win. One or two senate seats when 27 Dem seats were up? Good work, guys.

If Accosta is so obviously guilty, why the doctored video?
commented 2018-11-08 19:38:45 -0500
Notice how President Trump focused his rallies. The Senate was the target all along, his strategy worked and Dems realized it too late. They have the House, with no keys!

Acosta is just after publicity he will gain in the NWO Fake News fictions. Shows the workings of the Me me, me me, mentality of the Left.

Looks like normal people, not only have to do battle with Islam but now we have a fit’h column of Marxist added to the stop list, but then the Marxist have always been in bed with the Dogma of Islam, it makes people easier to control.

As a point of interest, ‘Red’ Sky News keeps replaying the video where Acosta comes into contact with the Microphone Lady, only they have cut it so that the viewer dose not see any physical contact between them.

Every time Trump opens his mouth, I clap with delight.
Too bad about Maxine Waters messing around with the gov’t debt even further.

I thought Trump could have been meaner during the press conference.

Ron Voss, Good point of Acosta being so rude. The president didn’t start it as he was even calling Acosta by his first name in a low tone.
commented 2018-11-08 09:28:32 -0500
Such rude and disrespectful behaviour by Acosta towards the President of the United Stress who is the Commander in Chief. Acosta must have missed out on a lot of straps when he was in grade school.
commented 2018-11-08 03:55:21 -0500
CNN on Acosta having his White House pass suspended for his bad behavior: “This is a disgraceful and unacceptable attack on a free and independent press…”
Meanwhile…….over at Tucker Carlson’s house……. CNN’s Antifa pals are making merry.
The irony.
commented 2018-11-08 02:10:41 -0500
I just finished watching the Trump press conference. Incredible how these left wing reporters are still going on about Russia and Trump’s tax returns. Well, at least Trump called them fake news again.

Thanks to this show, I feel better about the mid term elections. Like you pointed out, Ezra, presidents usually lose big in mid terms. This was sort of a half-and-half victory where Trump lost some battles while winning others. And also like you said, 2020 is the crucial election. I hope and pray that the Democrats totally lose it in every possible way.

News Flash. Republicans riot because they lost 20 something seats in the House and gain in the senate! Buildings were catastrophically maintained and 0 people lost their lives! No sign of white nationalism but experts say differently!
This just in……. Obama lost 63; and Clinton lost 50 something in their midterms. The blue wave succeeds in confirming it happened!

Acosta can cry foul all he wants, its on video. His arm came down on that girl as she reached for the mic. He had no business touching her in an attempt to block her. Acosta is insufferable. None of the reporters should be allowed to show such rudeness and disrespect to the President during these press briefings. Its getting out of hand, and more and more of them think they have a right to treat him rudely. There is supposed to be some basic etiquette followed and very few are.They act like a bunch of spoiled children. I’d throw him out for lack of respect – but he was thrown out for putting his hands on that woman, and possibly shoving her.

side note: Jeff Sessions is finally history.

Ezra, another excellent show. You brought up the fact that CBC exists to supply Canadian Content. I watch their News Channel plus CTV’s News Net equally and they are not fulfilling their duties according to the Canadian Radio & TV Commission (CRTC). I see CTV talking about Trump (many times they lie) 24/7. As you proved on tonight’s program CBC isn’t much better. They are both talking much too much about the US, and this has been going on for close to two years. Both CBC and CTV should have a one day suspension of service; this may also wake up Canadians to the low quality reporting that they are receiving for their tax dollars. CTV receives millions in Govt advertising, as we get closer to the election.

What can we do to wake up the CRTC. As Canada is so spread out, it would be hard to get an angry group of people to visit their Building.
Would you consider some sort of COMPLAINT PETITION, where it is videoed being delivered to a CRTC Executive?

In my opinion, Trump’s popularity is due to his ability to show that he really cares about people, he genuinely wants to better peoples lives, no matter Democrat or Republican he has the ability to let them know that he is their to help them and make a better life for them all. Of course their is always the hard core Marxist and those who vote with their so called religion who will try to stir up a brew of hate for him but he will win through.

2020 will be an interesting year.

- Congress was not doing a lot to help the Trump agenda before the midterms. The Republicans lost the house but they also rid themselves of many RINOs. They are also still close enough to the Democrats to take it back in 2020. Increasing their seats in the Senate was unprecedented. The Democrats poured everything into electing Beto O’Rourke (which was the only reason it was a close race) & failed. Celebrity support was the kiss of death. Obama’s support was the kiss of death. Many Democrats that got elected painted themselves as moderates – they’re in a difficult position today. The Democrats now have 2 of their most unhinged leaders on center stage – Nancy Pelosi & Maxine Watters. Canada’s fake news industry is just getting more & more pathetic over time. Playing to their Liberal masters & it shows.

- Jim Acosta has since had his “hard” press credentials withdrawn by the white house. Democrats are quite upset about this, seeing it as an attack on the constitution, 1st amendment, American values, etc. – yes the same people who want to do away with the constitution, applaud big tech deplatforming Infowars & Gab & banning conservatives. I believe the term is “crybullies”.

God blessed Justice Kavanaugh. Therefore blessing us. The prayers worked

The other reason the CBC hates Trump is that he is doing a much better job for the American people than the Boy Blunder is for Canadians and Canadians know it.
commented 2018-11-07 20:16:18 -0500
The loss of 27 seats in the House was no big deal as most of those particular representatives never on the Trump train to start with. The remaining Republican house representatives are now better off without the Fredocons.
Breaking: Acosta Whitehouse access restricted. Yay!
