Trump fans launch all-out attack on ex-Navy SEAL GOP lawmaker for defending McCain:

My son lives in Texas CD 2 and campaigned for Todd Litton who ran against Crenshaw. The DCCC is already targeting six Texas congressional districts and may want to add Texas CD 2 to the list

What Ariana Grande's "Sweetener" tour has to do with the 2020 election-Voter Registration

This makes me smile
https://twitter.com/washingtonpost/status/1108864380161146880

The “thank u, next” singer is turning her ongoing “Sweetener” tour into a voter-registration drive, partnering with the nonprofit organization HeadCount to get concertgoers to complete the paperwork that makes them eligible to cast ballots in the 2020 presidential race. The campaign, dubbed #thankunextgen (get it?), is already claiming success. “I see it. I like it. I VOTED. I got it,” read a sign at the organization’s booth, per a pic posted to Twitter. (That’s a play on Grande’s hit “7 Rings,” for the uninitiated.)

Juanita Jean-A Quick Alex Jones Update

Mark Bankston has been busy http://juanitajean.com/a-quick-alex-jones-update/

Again, I don’t know a whole lot to tell you because depositions in the Jones care are still going on. All I can say is that when I do get a few minutes to talk to Little Bubba, he is tired but happy.

I can tell you this. The Jones lawyer in the Connecticut cases is not faring well.


Honey, it takes some real special abilities to be more unethical than Alex Jones.

And, if you listen to podcasts, This American Life is about Alex Jones this week and Mark’s client, Lenny Pozner is interviewed. The show is called Beware the Jabberwock. It is well worth your time, as is anything This American Life does.

Redistricting Edge Saved GOP From Deeper Midterm Losses

That’s because they may have benefited from a built-in advantage in some states, based on how political districts were drawn, that prevented deeper losses or helped them hold on to power, according to a mathematical analysis by The Associated Press.

The AP’s analysis indicates that Republicans won about 16 more U.S. House seats than would have been expected based on their average share of the vote in congressional districts across the country. In state House elections, Republicans’ structural advantage might have helped them hold on to as many as seven chambers that otherwise could have flipped to Democrats, according to the analysis.

The AP examined all U.S. House races and about 4,900 state House and Assembly seats up for election last year using a statistical method of calculating partisan advantage that is designed to flag cases of potential political gerrymandering. A similar analysis also showed a GOP advantage in the 2016 elections.

The AP used the so-called “efficiency gap” test in part because it was one of the analytical tools cited in a Wisconsin gerrymandering case that went before the U.S. Supreme Court in 2017 and is part of a North Carolina case scheduled to be argued on Tuesday before the court. In that case, justices will decide whether to uphold a lower court ruling that struck down North Carolina’s congressional districts as an unconstitutional political gerrymander favoring Republicans.

Economic models point to a Trump blowout in 2020.

I have seen similar studies. It is not a given that trump is beatable in 2020. If the economy is in good shape, then there are models and studies that show that trump can win. Obama left trump with a great economy and trump may not screw up the Obama economy before 2020 and get re-elected.

I am not counting on the Obama economy faltering and so I am worried. We have to defeat trump

Trump could prove these models wrong by being the biggest asshole in history. Again, historically presidents tend to be re-elected if the economy is in good shape at the time of the re-election and even trump may not e able to screw up the Obama recovery

We need to work even harder to defeat trump
