I thought this election cycle’s “October Surprise” would be the gift to Republicans offered up by the organized illegal immigrant INVASION at our southern border - an invasion force that would arrive AFTER our midterms.
Unfortunately, now that many of the invasion force are being supplied motorized means of transportation, thousands will likely arrive just prior to our midterms. If they arrive before Nov. 6, the timing, IMHO, could not be worse for us - the optics and Left-Wing media frenzy/negative portrayal associated with a confrontation at our border will probably not play well with “fence-sitting” voters. I hope Trump puts severe financial pressure on Mexico by “closing” our border - this would place a real burden on Mexican commerce with the US/Canada. Mexico can stop this fiasco - I suggest Trump use his administrative power to see that it does.
The sending of “bombs” to celebrity left-wing zealots/politicians by a nut-job with pro-Trump posters all over his van offers a “gut punch” to our election chances in the House, IMO - I’m assuming we are ahead enough in a couple of key races to hold the Senate.
With all the positive policies/programs Trump/conservatives have presided over during the last 18 months, it is mind boggling that most of these mid-term races are even close. That the margins are so razor thin seems testimony to the number of brain dead voters we appear to have.
I would like to think our electorate will see through the BS. The base of both parties will no doubt turn out. However, women/Independents will likely decide these mid-term elections. We have an electorate that elected Obama twice and media presenting slanted, often openly hostile, coverage, with opinion passing for “journalism/news coverage” 24/7. In addition, as much as I like Trump’s policies, he is very inarticulate with a penchant for providing his opponents with a wealth of ammunition. Presenting Trump, his administration in the worst possible light, while ignoring the positive, has become a cottage industry for mainstream media and nearly all cable “news” outlets. Trump is bad: Maxine Waters who?
I’m hoping the House won’t be lost in this “perfect storm”, but it is unrealistic to think this week’s news hasn’t negatively impacted our chances.
