JOAN SWIRSKY — Well, whaddaya know? In the midterm elections of November 6, 2018, the American people rewarded the president – – for only the third time in almost a hundred years – – with a net gain of three and possibly four Senate seats, lost half the House seats that his predecessor lost, and left the radical left-wing Democrats not rejoicing at their meager gains, but still chomping at the bit to bring down the president who has effectively destroyed everything they believed in, worked for, and thought they achieved over the past 75 years….

CLIFF KINCAID — The election results are hardly the “great victory” claimed by President Trump. Republicans picked up a few seats in the Senate only because unpopular Democrats were up for re-election in conservative states, and lost the House. However, conservative Senator Ted Cruz barely survived in Texas, and the Republican gubernatorial candidate in conservative Georgia, Brian Kemp, only has a narrow lead…. (more)

PATRICK J. BUCHANAN — The war in Washington will not end until the presidency of Donald Trump ends. Everyone seems to sense that now. This is a fight to the finish.

November 7, 2018
WASHINGTON TIMES — Pollsters on Tuesday avoided their disastrous 2016 election forecasts by correctly predicting that Democrats would regain control of the House, though botching some important statewide races. Unlike 2016, when political gurus at The New York Times, The Washington Post and other media said President Trump had little or no chance of winning, surveyors this time captured voting in blue-state congressional districts where a number of Republican seats flipped….

Alan Keyes exhorts Americans who understand the role of God’s authority
ALAN KEYES — I think that every election in the United States ought to be taken as proof that the elitists are wrong who have, for several decades, preached the end of “American exceptionalism.” Who knows what most Americans take that to mean? But to their elitist enemies, it has always referred to the existence and success of their self-government and the disruptive effect it has had, from the start, on the self-respecting aspirations of human beings around the world….

WES VERNON — My first memory of Chuck Grassley was when he (along with two of his colleagues) showed up in Billings, Montana, as a young congressman to promote a GOP candidate’s (ultimately successful) bid for a congressional seat. Little did I know that decades later, this “young pup” from Iowa would return as a tough old boy (now 85) as a Senate committee chairman who tracks down purveyors of untruths…. (more)

FR. FRANK PAVONE — It’s no secret that some religious denominations support legal abortion. But it’s nothing short of grotesque when members of the clergy don their robes and stoles and lead a public blessing of abortion businesses. This happened in 2015, when a group of mostly female clergy blessed the Preterm clinic in Cleveland, where just a year earlier, young mother Lakisha Wilson had a second-trimester abortion that killed her….
