Blue Wave Crashing? Poll Shows Support Amongst Millennials Fading

News Commentary

A new poll of registered voters shows support for the Democrat Party is starting to wane amongst a rather shocking segment of the population – millennials.

The group who typically fits in with liberal thought, or the lack thereof, is not only losing their enthusiasm for the party, but they’re starting to recognize the Republican Party as better stewards of the economy.

What an absolute disaster for Democrats who simply assume that the midterm elections, six months away, are there’s for the taking.

According to a new Reuters/Ipsos national poll of over 16,000 registered voters between the coveted age bracket of 18 to 34, support for the Democrat Party over the last two years has dropped 9 points, down to 46 percent overall.

That kind of low-energy love for the opposition party may not bode well for their future, especially with a need to recapture so many seats in 2018.

The enthusiasm gap “presents a potential problem for Democrats who have come to count on millennials as a core constituency,” Reuters writes, “and will need all the loyalty they can get to achieve a net gain of 23 seats to capture control of the U.S. House of Representatives in November.”

How could this possibly be with Democrats tagging the trendy new, uber-cool slogan, “A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages?”

That alone should draw in the young ones.

The worst part for liberals is that these young folks are enjoying the concept of paying less in taxes and getting bonuses for their work that Democrats openly refer to as “crumbs.”

One voter cited in the Reuters article, a 34-year-old African American, almost sheepishly admitted that Republicans are doing more for him than that other party.

“It sounds strange to me to say this about the Republicans, but they’re helping with even the small things,” he said. “They’re taking fewer taxes out of my paycheck. I notice that.”

People notice more money in their paychecks. They notice ‘crumbs.’

In January, Philippe Reines, a former top adviser to Hillary Clinton, worried that millennials would vote Republican once they saw their taxes go down.

He worried they would become content once they saw more money in their pockets.

“I hope millennials don’t fall into a lull,” Reines said. “God knows how many of them will see their taxes go down and base it just on that …”

Perhaps now would be a good time to remind those very same millennials that Democrats have vowed to take those tax cuts away from them, to raise their taxes and decrease the amount of take-home pay they receive.

“It may have to be a ‘replace and repeal,’” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has said of the GOP tax bill. “Replace them (Republicans) and repeal the bill.”

Is that something you really want?

Soros is Busy Buying District Attorneys

Leftist kingmaker George Soros appears to understand how America really works.

While we are all wrapped up in the next midterm political election, Soros is doing something a bit different. And he’s been doing it for a few years now, and having some success.

Soros figured out who really runs the nation – who really wields the power – and it’s not the political class. In fact, it’s what we conservatives have warned of for as long as I can remember.

It’s the judicial class who runs America – from the black-robed oligarchs at the Supreme Court all the way down to local judges and prosecutors.

And that is where Soros is concentrating his fire, as it were. He’s pouring money into otherwise inconsequential State and local District Attorney races.

Soros understands that the real power is in the judiciary. Judges are more often than not appointed, so the next best thing is the elected District Attorney. They can sue most everyone, on behalf of illegal aliens, or the green lobby, or whomever, as well as gum up the legislature.

Long ago the judicial class appointed itself as the sole arbiter of what is proper in America. If for whatever reason, they disagree with a clear legislative matter, they deem it unconstitutional, and we lemmings are to just accept it.

In 2016, the Daily Signal wrote, “As part of his quest to overhaul the American justice system, liberal billionaire George Soros is targeting local prosecutor races like the one in Harris County, a large jurisdiction that includes the city of Houston.”

It looked like Soros had backed the wrong horse, as his guy, Morris Overstreet was defeated in the Democrat primary, despite $100,000 in Soros money. After Overstreet’s opponent, Kim Ogg, had won the primary, she “condemned the Soros donation to Overstreet intended to defeat her, calling it ‘a last-minute money dump to try to buy the nomination.’” She was right to do so.

But she wasn’t so upset as to refuse Soros’s dirty money in order for her to buy the general election. Ogg was elected Harris County district attorney “after going on to beat the Republican incumbent, Devon Anderson. She won the general election with the aid of about $878,000 from the Soros-funded Texas Safety and Justice PAC.”

Now it’s 2018 and Soros has his sights set on another Texas District Attorney race. Soros invested almost $1 million in the Bexar County Texas DA race. His puppet, Joe Gonzales, “upset incumbent Bexar County DA Nico LaHood in the Democratic primary Tuesday. If he wins, Gonzales will join at least 11 progressive lawyers since 2015 who have won district attorney’s seats thanks to massive financial donations from Soros.”

Soros spent $958,000 through the super PAC, Texas Justice & Public Safety supporting Gonzales. And that was just the Democrat primary. Wow – what a surprise – the same PAC as supported Ogg in 2016. Well – almost. Last time it was Texas Safety and Justice. Think maybe it’s just a typo? Think again.

“Soros has the routine down. He uses powerhouse Democratic law firm Perkins Coie to set up a super PAC named some variant of “Justice & Public Safety.” The super PAC will surface late in a DA race, using the kind of capital typically reserved for a national political race to fund a series of attack ads benefitting Soros’s preferred candidate, who wins almost every time.”

And the law firm, Perkins Coie, should also ring a bell. It’s the same clique of attorneys contracted to hire the firm that created the phony Trump dirty dossier. Small world isn’t it. Not really. Dig deep enough and you will always find Soros, the Godfather of political corruption’s name attached to these transactions.

Contested or Unusual Presidential Elections – Part 1

Last week on the Doc Owen Show we discussed a little about Contested or Unusual Presidential elections.  There was little time to get across all the information, so we thought we would put this research into several articles.  Below is Part 1 of a series of 6 posts.  We hope you find this information useful.

The first election we will cover is the election of 1800, sometimes called the Prelude to a Duel.

At that time political parties were beginning to form, an unfortunate situation for our Nation when you consider how the dominant political parties are acting today.  George Washington did not run as part of a political party.  He was a trend setter we should have followed.  He also set the precedent of serving two terms.  Honor and virtuosity were characteristics of his leadership.
