The Merde touch. Obama goes 0 for 4 on the trail in tight races
[Hot Air] Has this guy been cursed by a witch so that Democrats now have to lose anytime he campaigns for them in a midterm?

It is not true that every candidate he stumped for over the last four days rolled craps on election night. He swung by Chicago to campaign for Democrats there, then stopped off in northern Virginia to rally the troops for Tim Kaine and House candidate Jennifer Wexton, both winners yesterday. But Kaine’s and Wexton’s races weren’t competitive. Kaine’s was an absolute foregone conclusion and Wexton was heavily favored to oust Republican Barbara Comstock long before O showed up.

Antifa Group Shows Up At Tucker Carlson's House, Tells Him He's 'Not Safe' (VIDEO)
[Townhall] A mob of Antifa activists, known as Smash Racism DC, showed at the home of Fox News' Tucker Carlson. The group also had Carlson's address posted on Twitter but it was removed by the social media giant at the request of the Daily Caller News Foundation.

The group chanted various things at Carlson's door, despite no one answering.

They appear to be angry about the host's stance on various policies, including immigration.
The Daily Caller adds:
"Smash Racism DC" previously chased Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz and his wife out of a restaurant during Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings.

mob showed up at the home of Fox News host Tucker Carlson, an affiliated Twitter account published his home address and the home address of his brother Buckley Carlson ‐ along with the addresses of Ann Coulter, Daily Caller’s Neil Patel, and Sean Hannity.

We will not be naming the account or linking to it ‐ but it has not been removed by Twitter at the time of writing this.

The account has over 3,000 followers.

#1  Too bad his lawn wasn't soaked with gas / flammable liquid like that scene in Braveheart and someone threw a match when those assholes were on his property. It would have killed the crabgrass to boot.

#4  He should bring out a big TV and play Blazing Saddles on his lawn while they are there. And the best way to drown out anything such as chanting or yelling is bagpipe music.

The_Donald should trace the Antifa and publish their addresses and harrass their employers, landlords etc.

Basically punch back twice as hard.

#8  First, Twitter suspended the antifa nazis account. Didn't shut it down.

Carlson himself has had Clinton staffer Philippe Reines as a contributor that pulled this crap. Tuck didn't confront him about his arse hand behavior and in fact had him back on. Note to Tucker, if you don't squash bugs they come back.

Tucker has always had a hard time thinking on his feet. Not a fan but darn these nazis libs need to be stopped.

#23  (1) Adjust the sprinklers a bit and next night they show up make sure its watering time.
(2) Arrange for the family to take a nice vacation away from the madness and work late, let the protesters protest an empty house (with security cameras)
(3) Get a cardboard standup of yourself from a book tour and leave it in one of the windows so they constantly think you are home. Have an intern, friend or someone, move the standup occasionally.
(4) Film them and bring in gutfeld to mock them on air. If at all possible get a producer to get them to come on air, once you have their permission track down their parents and have them on air at the same time.

#25  Follow up reports show Tucker's wife was home and was quite terrified - locking herself in the pantry. One of the terrorists nearly broke down the front door, cracking it in the process. This is terrorism. Game over. Take the fokkers down now.

#26  If Tucker has some HD monitoring cameras one could upload the video to FB and then watch FB auto-identify some of the perps.... just saying....

#27  Here is the news Rex was talking about.

This is political terrorism. Straight up. At this point a shotgun blast should have come back through the door at these fascists. There have been no repercussions for their terrorist actions, thus they get more emboldened.

Put them down and/or arrest them. Plain and simple.

#29  Any gang stepping onto your property wearing bandanas will be shot.

Any gang members sitting down the street watching you, your wife, your kids piĺe into your car, follow you and your family to a restuarant and then said gang members get into your face, your wife's face and your kids face will be shot.

That is the second amendment.

Howard Dean: Georgia Election 'Almost Certainly Stolen' by Kemp; Tells Abrams Not to Concede
Idiocy and the erosion of the faith in our system continue
After a hard-fought and often nasty campaign, Georgia’s Secretary of State Brian Kemp has won the race to become the state’s next governor over House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams.

Kemp eked out a victory with fewer than 70,000 votes separating him from Abrams. Quixotic Libertarian candidate Ted Metz picked up just over 37,000 votes.

Kemp has declared victory in the race. His campaign manager Cody Hall told the media:

"Based on counts released by the Secretary of State’s office, Brian Kemp’s margin is so large that the number of provisional ballots and overseas ballots will not change his Election Day victory," Hall said. "Simply put, it is mathematically impossible for Stacey Abrams to win or force a run-off election.
"Peach State voters made a clear decision at the ballot box. Brian Kemp will now begin his transition as governor-elect of Georgia. He will work every day to keep our state moving in the right direction."

Naturally, Abrams has refused to accept the results. She claims that there are still votes to be counted, and she believes that those votes can push her over the edge. Her campaign said so in a statement.

"These counties also represent heavily-Democratic leaning constituencies, and the majority of those votes are anticipated to be for Stacey Abrams," the statement read. The campaign also said absentee ballots could make a difference.

"Across our state, folks are opening up the dreams of voters in absentee ballots, and we believe our chance for a stronger Georgia is just within reach," Abrams said Wednesday morning.

The race has gotten national attention ‐ largely because if Abrams wins, she will become the first African-American female governor of any state. Part of the attention stems from the accusations of voter suppression. Those claims relate to federal regulations for clearing voter rolls of inactive names, a rule that is outside of Kemp's control.

Even former Vermont governor Howard Dean has weighed in:

She should not concede. The election was almost certainly stolen by a candidate who supervised his own "election"

We don't like the results so you stole it.

Eat a dick, Dean. You and all your hellspawn of a party.
