2022 Midterms: No Stink on the Republican Establishment?

By J Robert Smith

Attacks on Donald Trump have begun in the aftermath of the midterm elections. We should have set our watches. Washington’s Republican establishment is pushing the line that the GOP’s underperformance in the midterms is “100%” Trump’s fault. Of course, there’s no stink on D.C. Republicans — not Kevin McCarthy, not Mitch McConnell, not Ronna McDaniel, not Tom Emmer (chairman, RNCC), not GOP consultants and pollsters… Not on any Republican who hangs out at the Capitol Hill Club.

Conservatives shouldn’t be goaded into a Trump versus DeSantis fight. Trump and DeSantis shouldn’t permit themselves to be baited, either. It’s so transparent, it’s laughable. That’s exactly what the establishment is trying. Washington Republicans don’t intend to just knock out Trump, but split conservatives. Is that rank odor wafting through the air from Karl Rove and Jeb! lurking behind the curtains?

The Senate is Very Much in Play for the GOP

In case you missed it, from my latest article at American Thinker:


“Corporate media is at it again, shilling for Democrats. The spin heading toward Labor Day is that Republican chances of winning a Senate majority are fading. A GOP takeover of the U.S. House hangs by a thread. Nonsense. In fact, Republicans are going to win a House majority and have a good shot of doing the same in the Senate.”


“Right-thinking Americans should be hopeful about the GOP capturing the Senate.

“Campaigns don’t gear up until after Labor Day. Most voters don’t start focusing on politics until summer ends and kids are back in school. Horse race numbers before Labor Day are sketchy and the pastime of the political class.

“Midterm contests are about to begin in earnest, and voters have plenty of reasons to go the GOP’s way.”


“With less than one out of every four Americans believing the country is a-okay, how does that help ruling Democrats? Do such bleak numbers make Democrats feel more or less confident about their election prospects?

“Biden’s job approval numbers have been underwater for months. He’s rivaling Jimmy Carter for bragging rights as the most unpopular president in modern times.”

If It Didn’t Work This Time, Maybe Next

One of the many truisms about the political debates in America is how incredibly predictable they are. If you look at any of the positions of Democratic candidates for president, and their counterparts in Congressional leadership, and ask what position they are likely to take on any issue, the answer can usually be found by answering this question: what will give them the most power?

The key motivator for those on the left is not to improve lives, make the nation stronger, or curb the heartbreak of psoriasis; it is to increase their power. Examples to the contrary are as hard to find as the tooth fairy, Sasquatch, or moderate Democrats.

NEWS FEED THURSDAY: Trump’s Critical Judicial Revolution

“As of today’s confirmation votes, Trump and McConnell have confirmed 150 judges to the federal bench — a group that can overwhelmingly be described as narrow-minded and elitist, favoring corporations and the powerful over the interests of all Americans,” said Marge Baker, executive vice president of the People for the American Way.

— The Washington Times, September 11, 2019

QUICK TAKE

People for the American Way, a misnamed left-wing outfit is in full grouse mode. Why? Because President Trump just made his 150th appointment to the federal bench. The pace and number of appointments are historic, per the Washington Times. But there’s much more.

Democrats’ Dayton Silence

Banging the drums loudest about the El Paso and Dayton mass shootings, Beto, Bernie, Biden, and Liz Warren. Not, mind you, to mourn the dead and commiserate with the bereaved. Expressions of sympathy were cursory from that unfabulous four. But to dump on Trump. To brand the president a white supremacist sympathizer, a gun-happy, wannbe exterminator of Hispanics. Or so MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace claimed – until she backtracked.
