Dems Lose… Again

June 21, 2017

HandelSANDY SPRINGS, Ga.—Republicans held on to a hotly contested U.S. House seat in Georgia on Tuesday, beating back an aggressive challenge that showed the Democrats’ inability to turn opposition to Donald Trump’s presidency into electoral gains.

Republican Karen Handel, a former Georgia secretary of state, beat Democrat Jon Ossoff, a onetime congressional aide, in the most expensive House race in history and the most significant test of the two parties’ political strength since Mr. Trump’s election.

In nearly complete results, Ms. Handel had almost 53% of the vote to just over 47% for Mr. Ossoff, the Associated Press reported.

In winning the seat, Republicans overcame a Democratic advantage in campaign spending and demonstrated that Mr. Trump retained political capital in the district. The president, Vice President Mike Pence and other party luminaries visited the Atlanta suburbs to support Ms. Handel’s candidacy.

The result was a big blow to Democrats, who were hungry for a victory to demonstrate that grass-roots, anti-Trump energy gives them a shot at taking control of the House in the 2018 midterm elections. Democrats earlier this year lost two other contested House special elections, in Kansas and Montana.

    It was those damn Russians. Come on America. WAKE UP. Those Russians ate all of the jelly for our peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at our Democratic Party election center. We were MAD.

    All the Hollywood dummies, and all the out-of-state communists couldn’t put Demoncrat victory together again. Losers!

  • rog363 says:

    It seems to me that these damned Liberal Democrats won’t be happy until something breaks out in the US of A that they can’t win, and I and many other veterans are waiting.

  • Jean Langford M. says:

    Excellent..Keep the momentum ROLLING…Fill those seats with NONE ELITE RHINO’S….

  • George says:

    If we do not deport all those illegals, the Democrats will win in the
    end. Illegals will not vote against freebies that we pay for and the Democrats only need a small percentage margin in each election to win.

  • Rodzzz says:

    This is only the beginning. A preview of what’s to come. Bravo to the Republicans. As for you democrats…….. well maybe you could once again blame the loss to the Russians? or not enough illegals voted? Whatever, you democrats are seem to be pretty good at coming up with reasons for your defeat……. and it’s never yours. Is it time to look in the mirror?…. No?… not yet?

    1. George says:

      I don’t understand why we try to get the Democrats to do what is right for their party. Things are working great for us. Leave it alone. Angry people make bad decisions!

      1. Worried Vet says:

        I agree, the president should stop giving good advice and all of us. Let these liberals and rinos keep it up and their party will be out of power for a couple generations at least. God willing maybe forever.

      2. Rodzzz says:

        You are so right.

  • Roy Fredrichsen says:

    There were 5 elections held recently an 5 Republicans won against massive spending by the Democrats. Hasn’t the Democrats gotten the message yet that the voters are tired of being lied to and other shenanigans from the O’Bummer
    supporters. Pretty soon the Democratic Party will meet its demise.

  • duncmck says:

    cultural collectivism is one thing.the rule of law is a contradiction to machiavillian protocol..the transmutated democrat party looks more like the borg out of star trek NG than the party of JFK..JFK would be considered a conservative extremist in present culture.we are not talking about tax rates here.we are talking about the war on individual and national sovereignty ,,anti nationalism is a contrived crusade .pure propaganda imposed by mr globalony who embraces scarcity for the human cattle they need to manage in the name of fake environmentalism / energy policies/ medical and food monopolies..we could live in abundance and clean up the planet and live inside an individualist co-operative community paradigm..i do not mean such thing.called human life in love. IMO

  • CBUJAN says:

    Handel despite leftist Jon Ossoff setting records for fundraising. He raised more than 7X what Handel brought in. Just like Hillary spent 10 times more money than Trump. The democrats are already raising money for the next two special elections. It won’t matter how much they raise the American people have spoken and as usual the democrats don’t listen., so dems and the lying media keep it up we love it. So far in all the special elections the dems are 0 and 5. Don’t you just love it. This just shows that democrats are so far out of touch with the American people and that Americans don’t believe a word what the lying media reports.

  • noah2006 says:

    Same old shit. The polls were wrong once again (why do we continue to pay any attention to them anyway?). Osoff was an empty suit who didn’t even LIVE in the district he tried to represent. How ridiculous is that? Thank you Mrs. Handel and thanks to VP Pence and Pres. Trump for supporting her.

  • Pete Bundy says:

    And once again the polls were WRONG!

    1. Ben says:

      The polls relayed the exact message that the democrats wanted to be relayed..once again, they failed to pull off the deception….

      1. Pete Bundy says:

        Isn’t this a ignore of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over trying to get a different result?

        1. Ben says:

          I’ve never seen any of their awards for ‘Fantastic Intelligence’….???

      2. Worried Vet says:

        I think you are spot on. I am starting to think most of these polls are a lot more liberal than we know, hoping to keep people home and not voting. If the GOP voters thinks it’s a lost cause they will stay home. Thank God voters are smarter than that.

  • CCblogging says:

    The Russians must have swung the election. The Dims see a Russian behind every bush. Russians are lurking everywhere according to the Fascist Dims. BTW, I am from Ga but wasn’t in Karen’s voting district so I did what I could do. I contributed money and I campaigned for her. We Patriots won over the lawless Dims. Ain’t life great?

    1. Ben says:

      I don’t live in Georgia, but I sure am proud of Georgians this morning.

      1. CCblogging says:

        me too Ben

  • Bob says:

    Why is it that prior to every special election since January, the Democrats and the Press (redundant) have been calling it a “bell weather election” and say it will “foretell the 2018 mid-terms”. Then, after each successive loss, they are reporting that the Republicans “were expected to do well” and they “held on to a seat they have held since…”. If they are right on their initial assessment and these are indications of the mid terms, we may be a single party country come 2019. How will they explain that?

    1. CCblogging says:

      The Fascist dims can’t defend their losses so they are starting a civil war. Just be armed and ready because the dims have launched a coup.

      1. Ben says:

        locked and loaded

      2. maxx says:

        The number of Americans that have armed themselves during the past 8 years has doubled. Gun manufacturers are ecstatic and so am I.

      3. Bob says:

        They are, and I am.

    2. maxx says:

      They will say it is “George Bush’s” fault as they have been saying for decades. Thank god GWB is so powerful.

      1. CCblogging says:

        you forgot the Russians. lol

  • ForEverADeplorableOne says:

    Republicans also won the special House election in South Carolina yesterday for the seat vacated by Mick Mulvaney, who he resigned to become WH OMB Director.

    1. CCblogging says:

      Thanks for more good news! The lawless Fascist dim’s money from Nazi Soros and from those Californication Hollyweird Socialist morons couldn’t swing either election. Aw, the power of those Russians. LOL!

      1. Worried Vet says:

        Yes and these Hollywood idiots spent almost twice as much money from what I read. If they keep it up maybe they will go broke and the GOP will have majorities in both houses. Then that fascist party will go away for good.

  • itsfun says:

    The left has no agenda. Their whole idea is to resist President Trump, and say Americans don’t want President Trump. They get proven wrong in every election. Before the elections they say “this is the most important election ever”, after losing they say “oh well”. All the left does is talk about a fake Russian campaign deal with the President, tax returns, obstruction and every negative thing they can make up. I hope they keep it up, and soon the progressive socialist part Democratic Party will disappear forever.

    1. maxx says:

      The Left’s agenda is to replace our constitutional republic with a communist dictatorship. That was Oblowhard’s goal all along if anybody paid attention to his actions and past history. True Americans will refight socialism/communism to the death if necessary. In the past eight years the number of armed Americans has doubled. That is Oblowhard’s legacy……. “open Americas eyes to the real threats of progressivism / socialism.

      1. itsfun says:

        I agree Maxx, I would add Hillary to that legacy of trying to make America a Socialist or Communist nation.

      2. Dee says:

        Itsfun,Randy, and Maxx , Great Posts . As long as We keep getting out to vote now , the dems will loose all seats as they come up . I still have Hope we can retire the bums , and stay clear of these illegit ones like osoff .

        1. George says:

          It is not only the left. We need to purify our party as well. A good enema to flush out the likes of McCain, Boehner, McConnell, Ryan, etc. is very necessary in order to right the ship and MAGA. Here’s to the next 25 years!

          1. Worried Vet says:

            Amen and your right. It’s time to clean out these elites for the good of the country. They don’t support POTUS and are fighting just as hard as the left to keep the status quo. Term limits are one answer to fixing this mess. Write, call, email your reps and tell them to endorse term limits or we will work hard to vote them out. What these elitist have done to this country is very wrong. It’s time to start turning off all of the biased media, especially CNN,mnsbc, and NBC. They are not news stations they are leftist propaganda machines period and most of their employees.

          2. George says:

            No better way to exercise term limit than by voting.

          3. Rodzzz says:

            How sad but true.

            my classmate’s half-sister makes $72 every hour on the internet. She has been without a job for eight months but last month her payment was $16159 just working on the internet for a few hours.Here’s the site to read more……++++++++++++++++++++

    2. Randy G. says:

      Wrong –the left has an agenda. It is flood the U.S, with illegals to cost hundreds of millions, let them vote to gain a one party socialist system, take from Americans to give to left countries that hate us, let the u.n. control and kill the Constitution, follow the lies that are the epa, kill Israel through the terrorist organization known as the u.n., let the epa, destroy more jobs in America, obama does not follow the law and gives billions to the lie that is the paris agreement and on and on and on and on and on. “WE THE PEOPLE ” are now seeing the lie that is the lft.

    3. Worried Vet says:

      I wish this so called special council would follow up on the emails just uncovered that show Hillary colluded with Russia. That arrogant, hubris witch needs to go to jail right along with hubby and all their minions. This two sets of standards with liberals and the media is disgusting. It’s time to start making lawmakers play by the same rules we the people have to abide by. If people can’t see this are either blind or stupid it’s ridiculous to say the least.

  • Ben says:

    It was Bush’s fault ! What can you expect…with all the Russians running wild, and not allowing illegals to vote… plus I’m sure there was some racism involved.

    1. Bob says:

      Will be interesting to see how they explain this one away. Can’t be misogyny as the woman won. Can’t be racism because both were white. Can’t be the “old white men” controlling the election, as the man lost. Might try “anti-immigrant”, since the looser was trying to win a seat in a district he didn’t live in and couldn’t (legally) vote in. You’re right, it just might have to be the Russians and Bush.

      1. Ben says:

        Aha! I fear your conclusion is flawed… you are trying to understand the out come by using ‘logic’….LOL….surely you don’t believe democrats have to have facts to justify their name-calling… ?

        [You obviously haven’t been watching enough Rachael Madcow and Bill Mahre.]

        It is possible that the only reason she won was because Pres. Trump hasn’t released his taxes?

        1. Bob says:

          Actually it’s because Designers are making clothes for Melania. (not giving them to her like a certain other clothes horse who used to use the same closets, mind you, just designing them) No, it’s because we pulled out of the Paris Accords. Wait a minute…it’s because Comey investigated Clinton’s “matter”. That MUST be it.

          1. Ben says:

            Don’t forget that time Melania’s hand brushed against Donald’s hand at the airport….[I don’t know much about politics, but I think we’re getting close]

          2. Bob says:

            I got it…Trump and Bush were seen enjoying a cup of tea at the Russian Tea Room with Handel. (so says unnamed sources)

          3. Ben says:

            Well, that does it! There’s not but one recourse… Impeach Trump, Pence, Kid Rock, Newt, Ivanka, Melania, Baron & his puppy [if he ever gets one] and anyone that even thinks about making America great again…
