Good morning, kids. Friday and as the recriminations and finger-pointing continue in the wake of the red wave that wasn’t, it is amazing how so many people either ignore or give short shrift to what is now fast becoming institutionalized electoral fraud in a growing number of states and key districts. Was that the only reason the red wave didn’t materialize? Of course not. But let me first delve into a couple of factors that are being pimped as the main causes but for sure weren’t.
By any measure, Democrats exceeded expectations this week. Though listening to the triumphalism today, you’d think Joe Biden was Hannibal at Cannae. A fractured Republican Party just won the House and still has an outside shot at taking the Senate. The first term of an unpopular Biden [so-called] “presidency” is now effectively over (save the executive abuse).
As expected, though, the lazy Dobbs-sunk-the-GOP narrative quickly solidified on the left. “It turns out women enjoy having human rights, and we vote,” Hillary Clinton tweeted. Dem cheerleader Joe Scarborough called it a “massive backlash.” “It will take a while to sort out exactly why Republicans did so much worse than expected,” writes Michelle Goldberg in the New York Times. “But there seems little question that abortion was a big part of the story.”
Listen, if anyone had told conservatives 30 or 20 or even a year ago that the political price for overturning Roe v. Wade would mean taking back only one chamber of Congress in the subsequent midterm, they would never have believed you. So, even if the left’s tenuous claim that Dobbs saved them in 2022 is to be believed, the price for ridding the nation of the legal and moral abomination of Roewould be well worth it.
But it is a tenuous contention. . .
. . . We’ll know more later, but it doesn’t seem like an army of enraged women and young people flooded the polls to exact revenge on the court. If CNN’s exit polls are to be believed, Democrats lost support among women in 2022 compared to the last midterm in 2018. The Associated Press/Fox News exit poll found that 52 percent of voters were women in 2018, and 52 percent of all voters in 2022 were women. It is a myth that young people came out in droves. Democrats lost support among younger voters, as well. . .
. . . It’s true that pro-lifers lost abortion referendums, including, incomprehensibly, one in Montana that would have compelled medical care for “infants who are born alive.” It’s also true that numerous Republican candidates are either unable or frightened to articulate coherent pro-life views. These are problems for Republicans.
On the other hand, Ron DeSantis, Greg Abbott, and Brian Kemp (in a state where the Senate race is in a runoff) all signed heartbeat bills and easily won re-election. John Fetterman might have beaten a dubious carpetbagging conservative in Dr. Oz, but pro-life Republicans JD Vance and Mike Lee had no problem. It also looks like Adam Laxalt has a chance to knock off Catherine Cortez Masto, an incumbent who made nationalizing Roe v. Wade the central argument of her campaign.
Nothing that happened this week makes DeSantis – who rightfully enjoyed a large victory in my home state, in large part due to the massive inward migration of MAGA Republicans, and in a slightly lesser part due to his laughably hopeless opponent Charlie Crist – the king of the America First movement.
As we begin to get some perspective after the risible “red trickle” falsehoods peddled over Tuesday night, people have begun to realize this midterm election went about as well as any of us had believed.
Not only did President Trump win 219 of his 235 endorsed races (that’s a 93 percent success rate at last count), but the Democrats just guaranteed themselves Joe Biden as their nominee for 2024.
In their zeal to create a “no red wave” narrative, they gave Beijing Joe credit for the disjointed, apoplectic, panicked messaging of abortion and the death of democracy. They have backed themselves into a Biden 2024 corner that is going to be long, arduous, and ultimately, defeated.
MAGA Republicans should also remember that they also do not simply fight the corporate media, the left, and the far left all at the same time. They also fight the same Republican moderates who are now whipping up division inside the party. Think about it. In the week Republicans retake the House, and probably the Senate, win a host of victories around the country and with more to come – the corporate Republican class wants to pick a fight with the man and the movement that got us here.
For example, the establishment GOP in Pennsylvania was dead set against Colonel Doug Mastriano, and they worked hand-in-hand with Democrats to defeat him. When your gubernatorial candidate is being attacked from all sides, including your own, your Senate candidate will also be dragged down, along with congressional candidates on the ballot.
If the GOP had actually rallied around the top of the ticket – Mastriano and Oz – they could have won together and delivered a down-ticket boost. But not only did the GOP establishment in that state lose the governor and the U.S. Senate race, they lost congressional races that should have been pickups. The blame lies with them, and they know it. Hence their projection – as always – onto Trump.
Hurt rejected the idea that establishment Republicans have a case for blaming Trump for midterm losses. He noted that the Republican establishment does not have a great track record with picking winners. For example, former Sens. Martha McSally of Arizona and Kelly Loeffler of Georgia had been handpicked by the Republican establishment to fill vacant Senate seats in red states, but both of them lost their re-election bids in 2020 to Democrats.
“These are two candidates who didn’t even have to face voters,” Hurt said. “It gives them the greatest advantage that any senator has in a Senate race, which is incumbency. And both of those women, who were handpicked by establishment Republicans and dropped in the Senate seats, couldn’t hold on to their seats.”
He continued, “So yes, you can blame Donald Trump if you want to, for one lost seat in Georgia, [but] we would not have [Georgia’s Democrat Sen.] Raphael Warnock if not for establishment Republicans dropping a terrible candidate in Kelly Loeffler into that seat.”Hurt said if the establishment is so good at picking candidates, “then explain why [Colorado’s Republican senatorial candidate Joe] O’Dea lost by 12 points.”
He added, “If you’re the establishment Republican Party, and you’re so effing good at all this stuff, then why [do] you pick candidates that even your own voters don’t support?”
THIS. Hello, Romney? McCain? Bueller?
Look, I do not want to get into an intestinal hassle with people over what Trump did or did not say about DeSantis, or even who should be the standard bearer for 2024. I am not going to engage in that shit because that’s what it is. First, if Trump wants to attack DeSantis or vice versa, it’s their prerogative to do so, since it is campaign season now in earnest and secondly, whatever they say and/or how they say it will redound positively or negatively on either of them in the minds of the base. If anyone has a suggestion whereby rivals can out-compliment themselves to determine which one wins, I’m sure both campaigns would be eager to hear from you.
On a personal level, whatever Trump’s shortcomings are – and yes he does have them – I’m just not going to open fire on perhaps the greatest president in over 100 years and among the best ever. That also goes for Ron DeSantis who potentially can rise to Trump-level greatness if given the chance. In any case, the media will distort and gin up crap all by themselves to sow discord and unrest in our camp anyway. Politics ain’t beanbag so let the chips fall where they may.
I’ve covered the fraud factor for the past two days now. It cannot be ignored. The 2020 scam has now been “fortified” and the results speak for themselves. If nothing else convinces you, ask yourself this: how can Katie Hobbs be both a candidate AND continue to act in her role as secretary of state, a prime function of that office being the running of elections and the tabulating/validation of the vote count? QE-fucking-D.
While that alone is something that is an absolute nightmare and proof positive that we have descended to banana republic level, my wanting to believe that that is the sole factor would be strangely comforting were it not for the real nightmare we are facing, as Robert Spencer duly notes:
If Della Volpe’s numbers are correct, and 64% of voters between the ages of 18 and 29 really voted for Democrats, then one thing is clear: the corruption and politicization of our educational system has worked.
One thing I know already.
If not for voters under 30 … tonight WOULD have been a Red Wave.

— John Della Volpe (@dellavolpe) November 9, 2022
What he is crowing about is the apparent fact that the voting group with the least life experience and the most recent subjection to the Leftist indoctrination that dominates America’s educational system ended up voting as it was brainwashed to do. Gee, that’s terrific, if you like evidence of the success of the relentless propagandizing of a vulnerable and impressionable captive audience, but neither John Della Volpe nor anyone else should be proud of it. What it shows is not that the Leftist case is compelling or persuasive; it shows that patriotic Americans have been far too complacent in allowing public schools to become centers of Leftist indoctrination and hatred of our own nation and heritage. . .
. . . this endeavor has been going on since long before Garland first put on his jackboots and resolved to destroy the republic. In the 1960s, Leftists began what Communist activist Rudi Dutschke indelibly dubbed “the Long March Through the Institutions”. . . The Long March Through the Institutions was the same kind of slow, steady takeover, as Communists, leftists, and their allies gradually gained control of America’s colleges and universities, its primary and secondary educational systems, its popular culture, and above all its ever-growing federal bureaucracy.
This has created a situation in which those who oppose this multifarious and all-encompassing establishment are universally derided virtually everywhere one turns: in what are supposed to be objective and impartial news broadcasts; in lessons at every level of the educational system about the nation’s history, present condition, and future prospects; in movies, popular music, and more. All of the late-night comedians who host talk shows are part of this camp, and they hobnob with the political elites, and yet they still posture as if they were plucky outsiders going up against a stultified and stultifying entrenched orthodoxy. . .
. . . Many, if not most, of the Gen Z-ers who voted overwhelmingly for the Left will, as they get older, come to realize how foolish and wrongheaded they were to support socialist internationalism and the managed decline of the United States. But others will never wake up, and will applaud that decline as retribution for centuries of alleged racism and colonialism. Even as their own cities and towns become ever more squalid, poor, dirty, and dangerous, they will continue to think of themselves as righteous for having chosen all that. That pride will be all they have left.
And that my friends leads me directly into noting that today is Veteran’s Day. It used to be a holiday that for me was a happy occasion, a time to thank those who wear or wore the uniform for their service and sacrifices to keep us free. Over the past several years, it has turned into a day of poignancy bordering on melancholy given the state of the nation for which those men and women served, and the complete degradation of our armed forces for those who are still in service. As the collective memory of those who served in World War 2, Korea and Vietnam fades away as more of them pass into history, we lose a vital connection to our past.
What does that leave us with? A lobotomized mass of sheeple, much like the Gen Z-ers who voted for a literal ham sandwich to be Senator from Pennsylvania because, Democrat good, GOP evil.
Anyway, now more than ever, when you see a veteran thank them, and more importantly, help them out however you can if they’re struggling. They deserve at least a little kindness, something this government refuses to do for obvious reasons.
Chin up, and have a good weekend.
