Doom and gloom flood the media on the eve of Trump’s first midterm election. Americans come off the weekend onto a big, info-flooded, single day of business and news before voting on Tuesday. Will the country gain momentum after the sharp turn it took two years ago or will it do a 170° and head almost back to where it was going under Obama?
Polls and forecasts spelled constant doom for the Republican party these past few months, all while Trump pulls farther and farther ahead in presidential polls. Too many so-called “experts” in mass media predict failure for Conservatives no matter what the outcome will be. With the immature display from Democrats during the Kavanaugh hearings, compounded with the growing #WalkAway movement, Conservatives have become so victimized and energized that it’s hard to imagine Republicans not gaining seats in both the House and Senate. A loss would beg questions of meddling.
Ironically, this election will decide more about the mainstream news media than it will about the nation. A Republican agenda over the next six years is more foreseeable than the media would have the nation believe. But, less clear is how much faith voters will maintain in the media. No matter what party a voter casts a ballot for, news networks that are as wrong they have been the past three years should not be able to stay in business. While voters will likely choose Republicans two elections in a row, viewers—Democratic and Republican alike—will likely choose to keep watching news networks that were wrong about Republicans two elections in a row.
Considering the fact that news networks stay in business with how wrong they were in predicting Trump’s 2016 loss, it’s a miracle any of them are still in business, let alone if they are wrong again in 2018. This miracle of such inaccurate news networks staying in business for so long is a big enough miracle to make the most avid Atheist believe in God.
The leaked questions Mueller would ask Trump should raise eyebrows about how deep the Russianewsgategate theatrics go. Contrary to propaganda, the grammatical errors don’t indicate that the list came from Trump because Trump uses very accurate grammar. For example, when most people would say, “They did bad,” Trump often says this correctly, “They did badly.” Interestingly, the “bad grammar” notion about Trump is a pop culture superstition stirred by the press among people who actually do have bad grammar. This coupled with the “bad grammar” argument coming from Mueller’s side of this lynch attempt indicates that the same people promoting the “bad grammar” view of Trump could also likely be behind this framing. Moreover, a “bad grammar” list makes the list more likely authentic, as if it is a collection of small notes of incomplete sentences that an interviewer would refer to when asking the real questions, of course with correct grammar.
Trump’s nonchalant disappointment in the Russianewsgategate investigation indicates that Trump has turned this into a war of legs rather than a war of arms; he intends to let it drag on until it loses all steam and the nation is tired of it—both his supporters tired from the pettiness and his opponents tired from results not delivered.
The Leftist arm of the mass media is certainly helping Trump. The most recent fake news about Cohen’s phone having been tapped—reported by NBC, reiterated by CNBC—is just the latest example. It’s almost as if they are trying to give Trump easy excuses to discredit them.
Another strange aspect of the Russianewsgategate “collusion” myth is the gross contradiction: With all the love and adoration that the Leftist arm of the media has held for Russia, with the Clintons having warm relations with Russia, the same media should be glad if they believe that Trump is working with their Russian role models of economics and leadership. But, they aren’t happy about the prospect of Trump cooperating with Russia because they don’t believe it’s true. This is just a ruse to connect Trump to the Hollywood myth of the “usual RAVs”—”Russians, Arabs, and Villans”. They were hoping that the American public would buy it.
Or were they? If we interpret the actions of the Leftist arm of the media, it seems they throw one slow ball after another so Trump can keep whacking it out of the park. Anti-Trumpists have no reason to be pleased with the Anti-Trump effort from the Leftists media sources they occasionally watch. It looks more and more like the Symphony opinion was right: 2018 could see an uptick in Republican victories—not that the Republican establishment can be trusted, but that times are certainly changing, something uncreative leaders in entrenched establishments loath.
An important word came in from some prophets at Generals. Read it in the links. Strength and calls to prayer are coming and confirmed.
The results in Iowa look back to Trump having been in second place at key times in the past. Previously second to Carson, then second to Cruz. The Religious Right’s first choice changed from Carson to Cruz. Trump supporters seemed unchanged.
The democrats could barely decide their candidate. Hillary won one vote by a coin toss. If Sanders loses, his supporters could swing to Trump in a general since both are anti-establishment. With 24% Trump, 25% Cruz, and 10% Carson—all having like-minded voters—Republicans have a strong base, indicating Iowa going Republican in the general election.
As for Cruz “dirty tricks” in misreporting Carson as dropping out, it isn’t over with Iowa; it’s just starting. People will now ask… How many times would Cruz have to apologize for things he “didn’t know” happened in his administration? Carson stands to benefit in the long run from the Iowa antics and Cruz could have exposed what type of manager he is. He may not be re-electable as a Senator.
To many, Cruz seems like a typical Christian hypocrite. Playing the “Christian fish” card won W Iowa and the general election—the only Republican president to win the Hawkeye Cauci in decades. Cruz won Iowa because he resembled W 15 years ago, even benefiting from [Karl] “Rovian dirty tricks”.
New Hampshire is more important as a “crystal ball”, where Trump is clearly in front.
Prediction: Cruz and Rubio destroy each other, Tump asks Carson for VP or less likely Palin as VP and Carson in the cabinet. Sanders loses to the Clinton machine, giving us a Trump v Clinton election. With Carson or Palin as VP, Sanders would be Hillary’s best choice to keep his supporters from moving to Trump. But, she probably won’t do that just because she read it here first.
