All the Trump Losses

SUB MIDTERMS HOUSE LEADERSHIP 5

Watch out! The propaganda will be profuse. Bottom line: the endorsements by the current occupant of the White House were bombs. Judging by his many shout-out tweets and home state visits to specific candidates – Trump’s Vote-for-Me rhetoric was powerless. His loyalists lost to Democrats.

Top among them: Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (CA), Sen. Dean Heller (NV) and Rep. Brat (VA). Also noteworthy: a whopping fifteen states elected a Democrat for their governor – and both the Georgia and Florida races are not yet determined but leaning Blue. Likewise Jeff Flake’s Arizona Senate seat may very well flip Blue as Rep. Kyrsten Sinema’s lead over Martha McSally surged to 28,000 votes in a count that is 88 percent complete.

What it all means:

  • Women’s voices will be heard
  • The Affordable Care Act will be protected
  • That damn wall remains a pipe dream
  • Hillary is safe from bullying “investigations”
  • The House has subpoena power
  • Tax scams for wannabe oligarchs are short-circuited
  • Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid are safe
  • DACA lives and,
  • Nancy Pelosi becomes Speaker of the House

That’s not all. The impulses of the current occupant of the White House to demand legislation from his GOP co-conspirators are a thing of the past. And State Houses across the nation can address the inequities of the voting systems enacted by their Republican predecessors.

We the People might witness a real infrastructure week. We could see a revitalization of clean air standards, the imposition of sanctions against our real national enemies and rational trade accords with our friends.

So much is possible when our government operates in its ordained constitutional role, and not as the prize of an autocrat.

Speaking of which, here are a handful of fruitless tweets by the failing White House tenant. Thankfully, his bluster and braggadocio repelled many among us.
