President's Message

What’s At Stake

A cliché used in political journalism is, ”This is the most important election of our lifetime.” It is no cliché in 2016 and is true for the midterms, because If either house of Congress flips, the Trump agenda is DEAD. Here’s what’s at stake in November:

Who Investigates Whom? Or Which Party Controls The All-Important Investigative And Intelligence Committees?
In the House of Representatives, will it be Republicans like Reps. John Duncan, R-Tenn., or Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, as the next chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee? Or will it be Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., holding the gavel? And will it be Devin Nunes, R-Calif., staying in charge of the House Intel Committee? Or will it be Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif.? Winning control of the House or the Senate will give the Democrats subpoena power, meaning they can even more aggressively investigate Team Trump for “Russian collusion” and open even more investigations.

Impeach 45! Impeach 45!
Maxine Waters could go from screecher to seer. The impeachment process starts in the House, so there is a good chance proceedings will kick off if that chamber is controlled by the president’s enemies. The Trump derangement victims will look for any scintilla in Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation to introduce Articles of Impeachment and pressure leadership to carry them out. Still, it takes a two-thirds vote in the Senate to actually remove a president from office, so some Republicans would have to go along, meaning it could only happen if there were some genuinely remarkable Mueller revelations. If Republicans win in November, Maxine is muzzled.

If The GOP Loses, The Gavel Drops On Trump Filling Court Vacancies
The Republicans must retain control of the Senate and its Judiciary Committee so that the President can continue appointing orginalist judges, especially since there is a good chance there will be another Supreme Court vacancy after the midterms.

They Want Your Crumbs Back
Nancy Pelosi’s initial response to the Republican tax reform was to characterize its related wage increases and bonuses as “crumbs” and “so pathetic.” Ms. Pelosi, a millionaire many times over, wants your pathetic crumbs. Democrats are vowing to undo parts or even repeal all of the GOP’s tax-code overhaul if they win back control of the House in November.

Obamacare Repeal / Replace And Immigration Reform
If Republicans hold on to the House and pick up Senate seats, then Obamacare repeal and replace — which fell one vote short in 2017 — could clear the Senate next year. If Democrats pick up enough seats in both Houses, look forward to the resuscitation of national health care, now being called “Medicare for all.” If Republicans hold on to both chambers, especially as the GOP is now becoming more loyal to the president, he will have a second chance at his immigration mandate.

The Importance of Electing Republican Governors
The party which wins control of the governors’ mansions will have the upper hand in redistricting. Republicans at least holding on to their governorships, especially in the Midwest, would give them a leg up in the next round of redistricting. But Democrats picking up governorships across the country could fundamentally change the redistricting landscape. Republicans currently control 33 out of 50 gubernatorial mansions. But of the 36 state governorships on the ballot this year, 23 are being defended by Republican incumbents. Among the gubernatorial prizes are the presidential swing states of Florida, Ohio, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. As Trump runs for re-election in 2020, governors will play a crucial role in mobilizing donors, volunteers and activists.

The Blue Wave Must Be Stopped
A Democrat victory means more hysteria, lies, and talk of socialism. They gain new powers to investigate the Trump administration, block the president’s nominees, pass new liberal laws, have power over the 2021 redistricting process and kill the Republican legislative agenda. But if Democrats do poorly, they could feel the consequences of their failure for a generation. Vote. Control your own destiny, or someone else will.
