Don’t know much about bomb scares – neither does anyone else, though that hasn’t stopped the left from getting #MAGAbomber trending on Twitter.
What strikes me as most odd is that the number of targets who all got their bombs at the same time indicates a massively detailed plan…which, so far, hasn’t resulted in a bomb going off. You’d think someone who could work out the logistics of hitting multiple, dispersed targets in a short time frame would have been able to, you know, Google how to make a bomb correctly. The punishment for sending an unsuccessful bomb isn’t all too different from sending a successful bomb…so, whomever is responsible is already looking at spending a very, very long time in a federal penitentiary. Why do that and not try to have a success in your scheme? All very weird.
Of course, some are calling it a false flag, but that is also par for the course. We have no evidence of such. If it is, though, it would be the most astonishing political scandal in American history.
The Laxalt family is prominent in Nevada and right now Adam Laxalt is running for Governor as a GOPer: but, the family isn’t united:
After 12 Laxalt family members wrote an op-ed opposing @AdamLaxalt’s #nvgov bid, now another 22 Laxalt family members have written an op-ed in the paper supporting him & his candidacy
Thanksgiving is going to be rough for the Laxalt family. It does look, though, like Laxalt will win. So, too, does it look like Heller will win. Early voting in Nevada still has a slight Democrat edge, but it doesn’t appear to be near enough to carry the Democrats to either a Senate or Governor win…and now Democrats are worrying about losing two House seats which they felt sure they’d win earlier in the year. But, as with all things Election, you have to wait until all the votes are cast and counted to really know.
But more and more evidence is piling up that, at the least, things aren’t going as well as the Democrats hoped. Ed Morrisey notes there is a real chance the GOP can flip Franken’s old Senate seat in MN. John James is surging so strong in MI against Stabenow that she’s called in Obama to rally the troops. Rep. Comstock (R-VA) whom everyone wrote off at the beginning of the cycle as a sure loser is tied with her Democrat challenger (and I understand Dem money is now flowing back into the race to try and save their bacon). And even the MSM is preparing the Democrats for the bad news.
As I’ve said before: my theory all along has been that the Democrats have gotten smaller, and the GOP larger, over the past two years. I was never sold on a Blue Wave happening, though I accepted it as a possibility. It still is a possibility, though a rapidly shrinking one. The chances of a Red Wave were, at the start, far more remote than the chances of a Blue Wave…but, now, I’ll say that the chances of a Red Wave are higher than the chance of a Blue Wave. In the end, though, anything short of Democrat control of the House is a stinging defeat of the Democrats. And if there is a Red Wave, it was created by Kavanaugh and Caravan.
