Michael Moore is on O'Donnell and positively glowing...describing a big blue victory on Tuesday

and how great the response to oppose Trump is right now...thousands in the streets. I have never seen him this happy and excited. Go Dems!!!!


Arizona's knock-down, all-out Senate race is heading into overtime, as a neck-and-neck contest between two congresswomen collides with Arizona's sometimes glacial vote-counting procedures.

Republican Martha McSally and Democrat Kyrsten Sinema were separated by a small fraction of the votes tabulated as of early Wednesday, with hundreds of thousands of uncounted ballots still outstanding.

Though the vast majority of Arizona voters cast their ballots early by mail, those who receive early ballots but then drop them off in person at polling stations on or close to Election Day can jam up the system.

That's because the state's most populous county, Maricopa, can take days to count those ballots while they simultaneously tabulate Election Day votes.

The so-called "late earlies" may not be counted until Thursday in the county, where about 60 percent of Arizona's voters live. Arizona counties with far fewer voters may also face long delays processing those ballots.

We may yet win Arizona.


Victory! Cuyahoga County Council Passes LGBTQ-Inclusive Non-Discrimination Ordinance (Cleveland)

This is huge. My gay daughter can now teach here in Ohio. So while we may not have won the governorship, we did win on some important issues. This also offers protection to Trans-gender individuals as well.


Fellow Du'ers...WE WON THE HOUSE...BFD

We had to over-perform in order to win a still gerrymandered house. We did it!!! Let us rejoice that Trump's dictatorship is over. We have a check. Also we won what nine governorships. Heller is gone, Walker is gone-Pete Sessions is gone! Lizzie Fletcher won in Texas also! The blue wall is up again in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin too. It was a good night for us.

Pete Sessions went down...YES!

I think Beto really has a chance to beat Cruz...I can't believe it...but it looks good. Nope Ted won

Damn Damn and Damn...it was close.

Kobach just went down !!!!!


Cook shifts 8 House races toward Dems /blue wave coming!!!!

Cook Political Report on Tuesday shifted eight House races toward Democrats and two in favor of Republicans with 14 days to go before the midterm elections.

The nonpartisan election forecaster projected Democrats will have an edge in key swing districts following the party's massive fundraising haul in the third quarter of this year.

Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska), who is facing off against independent candidate Alyse Galvin, moved from “likely Republican” to “lean Republican” after a recent poll showed the challenger within 2 points of the incumbent.

Florida's 6th, 15th and 27th congressional districts — all are open seats — shifted toward Democrats, moving from "likely Republican" to "lean Republican," "lean Republican" to "toss-up" and "toss-up" to "lean Democrat," respectively.

Arizona's 8th Congressional District, represented by Rep. Debbie Lesko (R), changed from "solid Republican" to "likely Republican." Lesko, who won the special election to replace former Rep. Trent Franks (R) earlier this year, is looking at a rematch with Hiral Tipirneni (D), who came up short in the special election.

Tipirneni more than doubled Lesko's fundraising in the third quarter.


Lindsey Graham is a pig This did not come out right...browser acting up but he really went there.

Separated migrant children are headed toward shelters that have a history of abuse and neglect

Read this article...it is truly horrifying.We are sending kids to monsters who will rape them, drug them and beat them.

"Homes with worst issues keep getting grants
A case in point is the Shiloh Treatment Center, a mobile home complex-turned-child care center. Located in rural Manvel, Texas, the center was founded in 1995 by Clay Dean Hill, who is now 69. In 2013, the resettlement agency began funding the shelter, sending more than $25 million in grants over five years.

In 2001, Stephanie Duffield, 16, died after being restrained by staff. Following her death, Shiloh was found to be “in compliance” with state requirements, according to the refugee resettlement office. Since then, Shiloh has been dogged by allegations of child abuse, leading Brazoria County’s district attorney, Jeri Yenne, to call for increased monitoring of the shelter.

Children have died at two other programs affiliated with Hill, Behavior Training Research Inc. and Daystar Residential Inc. Between 1993 and 2010, three children died after being restrained at those facilities. In 2002, Latasha Bush, 15, died from asphyxia. Eight years later, Michael Keith Owens, 16, died after being restrained inside a closet. Both were ruled homicides.

Daystar closed after Owens’ death. Behavior Training Research remains registered as an active domestic for-profit corporation.

Over the last three years, Texas inspectors found eight deficiencies at Shiloh, including poorly supervised medication inside the facility and overdue background check renewals for staff."
