Nancy Pelosi Could Soon Be The Speaker Of The House, And That Should Freak You Out

Are you ready for the second coming of Speaker Pelosi? As a result of the recent Obamacare debacle, the American people are deeply frustrated with the Republicans in Congress. And having nowhere else to go, many voters are considering turning to the Democrats for answers. As you will see below, one recent survey found that only 37 percent of voters nationally say that they plan to support Republican candidates for Congress in 2018. If the 2018 mid-term elections were held at this moment, the Republicans would be in big trouble and it would be quite likely that the Democrats would take back control of the U.S. House of Representatives.

 

And I am not the only one that is warning of political doom on the horizon. Earlier today, an editorial by Newt Gingrich and Brad Anderson also warned of what could happen if the Republicans don’t get their act together…

Following Republicans’ failure to fix the country’s health care system, polls show Americans are increasingly flirting with Democratic governance in Congress next year. This means Republicans must change their game plan. The next six months must not be the same as the last six months.

To regain their legislative momentum and keep their majority, Republicans must clearly demonstrate they are fighting for the country’s hardworking taxpayers. This means passing a major tax cut by Thanksgiving — and making it retroactive to the start of this year.

I am not particularly optimistic that we will see major tax cuts by the end of this year, but hopefully I will be proven wrong.

If the Republicans in Congress continue to fumble the ball, we could see a historic wipeout in 2018. As I mentioned above, the polling numbers don’t look good for congressional Republicans at this point…

Democrats stand to win big in the 2018 midterm elections, according to a new poll – perhaps flipping enough seats to take over the House of Representatives.

Forty-four percent of registered voters say they would vote for a Democrat in their district if an election were held today. Just 37 percent said they would back a Republican.

And even in the best of times, this upcoming election would provide quite a challenge for the Republican Party. Larry Sabato of the University of Virginia recently explained why

Midterm elections for first-term presidents are historically ruinous for the party that controls the White House.

By Sabato’s analysis, the president’s party has shed House seats in 36 of 39 midterms stretching back more than 150 years, with an average loss of 33 seats — well above the 24 pickups the Democrats need to take the chamber next year.

If something happens 36 out of 39 times, there is a very good chance that it will happen the next time too.

So even if President Trump was exceedingly popular right now the Republican Party would have an uphill climb in 2018. But the fact that his approval ratings have fallen so precipitously definitely spells trouble…

President Donald Trump has watched his ratings decline for months, but on Wednesday two respected polls showed that only a third of American voters view him favorably — a new low less than 200 days into his presidency

A new Quinnipiac University Poll has the president’s approval rating falling to 33 percent, while Gallup shows it at 36 percent. Quinnipiac’s measurement is the lowest in the poll’s tracking of the Trump administration thus far, and Gallup’s is the lowest three-day average it has registered.

I fully support President Trump, but I have to admit that those are horrible numbers. Of course the mainstream media is treating him exceedingly unfairly, and that takes a toll. But hopefully he can eventually overcome the constant media onslaught and regain the level of popularity that he enjoyed back during the campaign.

If you dig even deeper into the Quinnipiac poll, you find some numbers about Trump that are deeply, deeply alarming

  • 54% said they were embarrassed to have him as president
  • 57% said they he was abusing the powers of his office
  • 60% said they believed he was above the law
  • 71% said Trump was not levelheaded
  • 62% said Trump was not honest
  • 63% said Trump did not have good leadership skills
  • 59% said he did not care about average Americans
  • 63% said he did not share their values

President Trump cannot fight this battle alone. So many conservatives out there decided that their job was done once Trump won the election, but the truth is that the battle is just getting started.

Right now, Democrats are raising millions upon millions of dollars for the mid-term elections and the liberal base is extremely energized.

If we do not match their enthusiasm and energy we are going to be facing a historic defeat.

And if the Democrats are able to take control of both the Senate and the House in 2018, it will just be a matter of time before Trump is impeached.

We desperately need to get Trump more friends in Congress, and so I am hoping that you all will stand with me and other pro-Trump candidates that are running for federal offices in 2018. In my new book entitled “Living A Life That Really Matters”, I explain what I hope to do once I am elected, and one of the things I hope to do is to put an end to the ridiculous investigations that are keeping Trump from being an effective president.

We have a once in a generation opportunity to fundamentally change the direction of this country, but if the Democrats take back control of Congress in 2018 that door will be slammed shut.

So hopefully we can get conservatives to awaken out of their slumber, because if nothing dramatically changes between now and the 2018 mid-term elections, the Democrats will likely win a huge victory and Nancy Pelosi will likely once again become the Speaker of the House.

Michael Snyder is a Republican candidate for Congress in Idaho’s First Congressional District, and you can learn how you can get involved in the campaign on his official website. His new book entitled “Living A Life That Really Matters” is available in paperback and for the Kindle on Amazon.com.

    It is not hard to understand the turmoil within the current US political arena. One only need to read Communist Goals (1963), Congressional Record — Appendix, pp.
    A34-A35, January 10, 1963. 95% of those 45 goals have already been achieved. The list is long enough, that space here doesn’t permit to comment on all, but here is a sampler:

    20. Infiltrate the
    press. Get control of book-review assignments,
    editorial writing, policymaking positions.

    Certainly sounds like the main stream media.

    26. Present
    homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal,
    natural, healthy.”

    Sound familiar?

    28. Eliminate prayer
    or any phase of religious expression in the
    schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation
    of church and state.”

    A child can’t even bow their heads silently in the cafeteria to give thanks for their food in many schools.

    29. Discredit the
    American Constitution by calling it inadequate,
    old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to
    cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

    Haven’t we heard a few politicians spout that very line?

    38. Transfer some of
    the powers of arrest from the police to
    social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric
    disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or
    treat].

    Social Services can now take away one’s kids over alleged hearsay actions.

    These are just a few, but I think that most will find the list entertaining and educational. The Bolsheviks are now with us, they are not the Russians and they wear sheep’s clothing.

      Yes, they told us they would destroy us from within. It’s time to look to God for salvation as individuals, not to anything or anyone else, including government or ourselves. We’ve more than proven that we make a mess of things.

      • SEEK THE TRUTH!

        and they’re doing an excellent job and destroying us. people have become so indoctrinated over time that they are unaware of what is going on. it started several decades ago and those who were indoctrinated then indoctrinated others and so on.

        • iris

          Yes, they used and still do use, the Hegelian dialectic. It’s why most current GOPs would have been described as beatniks if placed into the 1950s. The idea is built around finding common ground, then consensus, then an antithetical idea is introduced, that gets thrown around until common ground and consensus are again reached, and it continues on until the end goal is achieved. Many of the mega churches use cell groups. They like to call them Bible studies, (although those barely scratch the surfaces of true Bible studies) Life groups, Home groups, etc., but that consensus centered approach is included. The mega churches like Willowcreek and Saddleback introduced the method decades ago, via the mentoring of Peter Drucker, a world famous economist who touted it for business use, and suggested it to increase the number of behinds in the pews. He described himself as a Communitarian, which I think meant a blending of Communism and Humanitarianism. He was baptized Episcopalian in his youth, but I doubt he was a practicing Christian.

        Government is God ordained. It is mankind that corrupts it. Proven time and time again throughout the old testament that mankind repeatedly has failed to live up to the ‘law’ of Moses until finally for man’s salvation Jesus Christ had to come and die on the cross for us, because we failed so miserably.

        • iris

          I agree, R.C., and the downward spiral seems to have turned into a class 5 tornado at this point. God is still in control, however. All He allows is meant to draw us to Himself.

      Great post, and good info .

      I am convinced demoncrats or rinos will take next election (as socialism and communism seems to be what the majority of steeple desire) and “restore” the values and momentum of destruction that obummer contributed to this nation, fulfilling his promise to fundamentally transform America

      Freedom will be lost, and Orwellian, draconian policies will be commonplace in very near future

      As Iris said, trust I and seek the Lord Jesus Christ while there is time, as he is the only one that can grant peace in times of trouble, which are here and are going to get worse

        “In the early-to-mid 20th century, the phrase “politically correct” was associated with the dogmatic application of Stalinist doctrine, debated between Communist Party members and American Socialists. This usage referred to the Communist party line, which provided “correct” positions on many political matters. According to American educator Herbert Kohl, writing about debates in New York in the late 1940s and early 1950s,”

          The Declaration of Independence states,

          We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

          This new but old party line of political correctness (PC) defies the original intent of the authors of America. These inalienable rights were considered inseparable, not to be given or taken away by the Creator. If you will notice, PC is almost always considered justification for violence and denial of inalienable rights. This supports the goal of:

          42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use united force to solve economic, political or social problems.

          As you may notice, certain conservative speakers are now being rejected from speaking on college campuses, because of the PC agenda. Even a T-shirt with an American flag on it, hat with Make America Great Again are being treated with disdain on college campuses and certain areas of public view.

          It is all a part of conditioning and thought policing.

            Yes, this rebellion made its grand debut in the 60s, mostly by “privileged” youths, I use the quotation marks, because imo, they probably didn’t really have a privileged upbringing emotionally, but also, there were paid by Communist/Socialist entities behind the scene, young people who may not have been so privileged. Those entities capitalized, irony intended, on the hyper-idealism, impatience, arrogance, and naivete of youth. Sadly, many of the privileged youths of the 1960s are now in places of power in our government, academia, and professional fields, since their parents were able to send them to the best schools. Granted, some of the movement surrounding the 60s brought about positive change, but for the most part, also imo, it has yielded a lot of destruction.

    • SEEK THE TRUTH!

      I’ve brought this up on numerous occasions on infowars. here is what I think happened. the communists knew they could never beat the U.S. in a military fight so they decided to infiltrate little at a time. first it was academia, next came the entertainment industry and the media followed by the government and corporations. their influence is everywhere now and it is referred to as Cultural Marxism, i.e. Political Correctness. I think it might have started as early as the late 1950s, maybe earlier.

      Regarding the entertainment industry pushing #26, one only need to look at Hollywood:

      21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
      24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
      25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
      40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

      Hollywood continues to pump out the world majority of obscene filth to the extent even the majority of “Christian” men look at porn at least once a month and some more. The same is pushing alternative lifestyles. Divorce statistics between “Christians” and non-Christians are about the same.

      Oaths, such as the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag are under attack fulfilling:

      13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

      See NYT: Judges Ban Pledge of Allegiance From Schools, Citing ‘Under God’

      Also, cultural relics of past US history, busts and statues are being removed from public parks and buildings under the guise they are culturally offensive, which fulfills:

      22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
      30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
      31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.”

      Recently displays of the American flag have been vandalized and discouraged as culturally offensive to foreign cultures within, MSM parrot traditional patriotism as terrorism and etc. There is definitely an agenda afloat, and this no conspiracy theory.

        • davidnrobyn

          It’s a race against time for the LGBT propaganda machine. Will they succeed in blunting public outrage against pedophilia before all the child-rape perps are outed? Stay tuned.

        • George

          Late Winter, Vladimir Putin signed a law unanimously passed by the Russian congress banning Russian orphans from immigrating to US due to concerns of pedophilia. Here is what http://yournewswire.com/putin-bans-u-s-parents-adopting-russian-orphans-due-to-pedo-epidemic/ had to say:

          D.C. children most at risk

          The elite pedophile ring operating out of Washington D.C. has made children living in the nation’s capital the most “at risk” in the country, according to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services data, with an astonishing 23.4 per 1,000 children suffering abuse. The next closest is New York, another known elite pedophile hub, with 17.4 cases per 1,000 children. ….

          When the adoption bill went up for a vote in the Duma, only four deputies voted against it and two abstained. An overwhelming 400 voted in favor of the new law.

          There are consequences to our years of pandering to sexual promiscuity, encouragement of recreational sex outside the bounds of lawful marriage to the opposite sex. By compromising has led to other consequences, the 60 million unborn child holocaust and pedophilia.

          Vladimir Putin is not well liked by the elite established oligarchy, because he is opposed to their agenda. This is why the mainstream media villainizes him. Here he has this much more to say, which overall has been suppressed in the mainstream media.

          This is not the first time Putin has called out the West over pedophilia.

          Last year Putin used his annual Christmas press conference to accuse Western liberal elites of abandoning the traditional values that made their countries great. Instead of building a future based on solid Christian values, Western elites have created a culture of “excessive, exaggerated political correctness.”

          Even he is aware of the political correctness agenda being carried out in the US. He has this much further to say of the degradation of traditional Christian values in the west to include the United States:

          This new culture is so destructive it will lead to the downfall of Western civilization if it is not arrested, he warned.

          In the four hour question-and-answer session, Putin said there is an international push for a New World Order that will “remove national sovereignty” and “destroy identity and of God-created diversity.”

          To reach this goal, Putin states that Western elites have begun rejecting the roots that their societies were built on.

          “Many Western states have taken the way where they deny or reject their own roots, including their Christian roots which form the basis of Western civilization. In these countries, the moral basis and any traditional identity are being denied – national, religious, cultural and even gender identities are being denied or relativized.”

          “In these countries, the moral basis and any traditional identity are being denied – national, religious, cultural and even gender identities are being denied or relativized. There, politics treats a family with many children as equal to a homosexual partnership (juridically).

          “The excesses and exaggerations of political correctness in these countries indeed leads to serious consideration for the legitimization of parties that promote the propaganda of pedophilia.

          “The people in many European states are actually ashamed of their religious affiliations and are indeed frightened to speak about them.”

          Russia just now is coming out of its dark age of Bolshevik rule. Edward Snowden is better off remaining in Russia, because the corruptness of the US judicial system would never afford him a proper hearing.

          We are now at the stage of Ezekiel 14:12-14 (NHEB):

          The word of the LORD came to me, saying,
          “Son of man, when a land sins against me by committing a trespass, and I stretch out my hand on it, and break the staff of its bread, and send famine on it, and cut off from it man and animal; though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, says the Lord GOD.”

          As in the days of Noah spoken of in Matthew 24, we are seeing unprecedented wickedness presiding in our society, so corrupt that God saw fit the only way to right it was to destroy save the righteous elect. Thus, it is important for us to keep our oil lamps trim, keep obedient to the Gospel message, keep expressing the Gospel by word of mouth and lifestyle, that we may bring others to Christ.

    I know that lowering taxes is a good political move, and it would benefit the middle class by leaving them with more discretionary income (or money to plow back into their businesses), but the truth of the matter is that it would just accelerate our indebtedness.

    That said, does it really matter at this point? We’re going to default eventually anyway, and it might be better if this were done sooner rather than later.

    The difference between the shortfall now and the greater shortfall of lower tax collections is just the need for more paper to paper over the difference.

    It may be that the income tax is just a smokescreen anyway to mask all the papering-over. Maybe we ought to take the emperor’s clothes all the way off by abolishing taxes altogether.

    Nobody in DC has any intention of paying off the debt anyway, so let’s call their bluff.

    I think you’re overreacting. Republicans in Congress are a bit rusty after 8 years, but don’t count them out yet.

    The problem is the destruction of the working class of this country.
    I must admit that Congress has done a really good job with the help of corporations to destroy the working class.
    1. The subcontracting of work overseas. Corporations jumping on the wagon and destroying the wages of American workers in favor of slave wages abroad.
    2. The Medicare and Medicaid fiasco costing far more than it was presented as costing. If you are broke and on welfare you get everything pretty much for free. The rest of us end up paying for it.
    3. Forcing everyday people into Obamacare. Its only notable accomplishment is the destruction of the health insurance industry and forcing working people into plans with very high deductables.
    4. The scandal of prescription drugs going through the ceiling. One drug costs about $5 to make and they are charging over $600 for it and it concerns just about every type 1 and type 2 diabetic in the country.
    5. The financial destruction of the tax code. Married people are at a disadvantage under the current code. That includes liability if you are married for the health bill of your spouse. If you simply live together it ends with the bankruptcy of the spouse.
    6. The wage oriented benefits given out by the government. The less you make the better off you are in a real medical emergency.
    7. The entire part-time worker fiasco in which you deny benefits to people working part time.
    8. The gradual education of the working class to be agnostic. They do this under guise of keeping neutral towards religion unless you have a militant religion.
    There are much more examples. It is time to take a really good look at just who owns who in the US Congress. Start by whom contributes most to their re-election campaigns.
    The rest is smoke and mirrors. That is the real reason we still have Obamacare.
    These rhinos are in the pay of the major corporations of this country and they are definitely in the payroll of major industries like the Insurance and prescription industries.
    The only way around this at this point in time will be to convince the insurance industry that it is in their best long term interests to fix it so they are still in business in the future. The health insurance industry has taken a major hit over Obamacare with the liability that comes with these rules. Even soaking the rest of us for the cost has not helped.
    How to fix it?
    We have to overhaul the Federal Drug Administration for starters. It costs way to much money to bring new things onto the market and no other country in the world is as bad about that as we are.
    We have to go after the profits of corporations ruining the prescription industry for the average person and that means shorting the patent system on time for the new drugs so competition can bring the price down.
    We have to have competency tests for anyone going for election in the future.
    Nancy is obviously in the early stages of dementia or appears so.
    That is a disease just like any other and is in no way dishonorable to anyone if it is treated properly.
    As we grow older we all have to deal with the possibility of this occurring to us or to someone we love.
    I think we need to take the profit out of long term illness. That means curbing the profit on anything to do with things like heart disease, cancer, diabetes, etc.
    I think we need to put bounties on finding a cure for these diseases. Not one dime towards research that produces nothing. Pay for results instead. All we are doing is giving a lifetime job to researchers under the current system.
    Until we make changes on what I just described it is hopeless to elect fresh people into the system. The system will eat them.

    ..worse than this allowing McMaster to fire all The Trump Loyalists who actually believed and tried to implement his campaign promises…
    ..worse this this will not fire Obama holdovers who are betraying him from within…
    ..Trump is a liar who can’t keep hi story straight.

    The joke is on us who believed him in the first place.
