Donald Trump just scored one major victory that had him smiling from ear to ear

Democrats thought they had Donald Trump on the ropes.

The Fake News Media battered the President with bad headlines in hopes of pushing the impeachment narrative to the point of inevitability.

But Donald Trump just scored one major victory that had him smiling from ear to ear.

Louisiana is one of the three states holding its gubernatorial election this year.

Democrat John Bel Edwards is the incumbent and he faced two Republican challengers in the state’s “jungle primary.”

Under this system, all candidates appear on the ballot and the top two finishers – regardless of their party affiliation – head to the General Election runoff unless one candidate reaches the 50 percent threshold, and in that case is declared the winner.

Edwards was polling in the mid to high 40s and some pundits believed there was a chance he could avoid a runoff due to Republican voters abandoning the President in the face of the impeachment witch hunt.

That proved to be wishful thinking.

The President held a primary-eve rally in Louisiana and implored Republican voters to turn out and support one of the two GOP candidates challenging Edwards to force a runoff.

That is exactly what happened as Edward won only 47 percent of the vote and will now face Republican businessman Eddie Rispone in the November runoff.

The Daily Caller reports:

The 2019 Louisiana gubernatorial election will be decided by a runoff election on November 16 after none of the candidates achieved more than 50% of the vote in the state’s gubernatorial primary.

Democratic incumbent John Bel Edwards won a plurality with 46.6% of the vote in October 12’s primary, but it was not enough to secure him outright victory. Edwards will face Republican businessman Eddie Rispone, who received 27.4% of the vote, in November’s runoff.

Despite Edwards’ plurality, President Donald Trump tweeted a congratulations to both the state of Louisiana and Rispone

“Congratulations to the Great State of Louisiana. A big night. You will soon have a new and wonderful Governor, Eddie Rispone,” the president said.

A general rule of thumb is that if the top finisher in a primary fails to reach 50 percent, then their primary vote total is their ceiling for the General Election.

In this case, the Democrat fell short of 50 percent and enters the election with only 47 percent of the voters committed to supporting them.

That spells bad news Democrats.

  2. WHY????? WHY are sooo m,any calling th3e DEMO-RATS WATERMELONS?
    Well like the fruit the3y are all environmentally green on the outside, but they are all COMMIE RED MUSH on the inside!
    Let’s pray that they’ll be on the outs, for the next 20 years!

  3. I saw some clips from the rally President Trump was in his groove. I hope he is able to rally his supporters all over the nation and get every Democrat in our country primaried and defeated in the final election. You may not agree with the Republican party but at least it is still somewhat reality based. The Democrat party kow-towing to LEFT extremism has dove of the cliff or sanity into the utter darkness of insanity. Nothing is too irrational to not be embraced politically. Any voice of reason must be marginalized and shouted down. We are facing not a two party choice but a choice between a government based on sanity or insanity. It shouldn’t be this way but that is what our nation is faced with today.

  4. If we all come together with Mr. President – we can together Make America a Great Country and Beautiful Country, there is No Way that America is going to become Communist!!! Like my answer years ago, in 1968, when I came from Thailand to further my education in Los Angeles, it was during Vietnam War. A lot of my American friends said this to me: Thailand is going to be a Communist Country. I kept telling them: There is No way that Thailand – to become Communist! They asked me Why? And my Reply: Because We Thai People – we Love and we Adore our King – King Bhumibol Adulayadej. He is the Father of our Country!!! And No, Thailand has not never become Communist!!! Yesterday, Sunday – October 13, 2019, I went to a Thai Temple in N. Hollywood, I witnessed with my own eyes, Yes, we – Americans/Thais still love Him the father of Thailand, even though, he has passed on for 3 years already. All Americans/Thais had gotten together to recognize our Great King, King Bhumibol of Thailand. I witnessed myself twice, at this Thai Temple, as we listen to Our Lord Buddha, who showed the World of a Religion of Peace!!! How, those young Americans/Thais are taught, to have the respect to their beloved adopted country, the U.S.A. Every Saturday and Sunday – those young children who came to learn Thai language, and Thai culture line up beautifully in their uniforms. There – the American National Anthem is praying for them to pay respect to American Flag, and then the Thailand National Anthem to pray for them, to pay respect to Thailand Flag!!! This is the good sample that We All Should teach our American children to have Respect to our country with Love and Peace!!! We must come together – to Love America. Come together with our President now, as he has been making our America Beautiful and a Great Country. America – I love You, as my first step on America’s Got Talent Big Stage, season 12. I am hear to Make People: Live with Laugh and Love!!! Big Benji on America’s Got Talent. Yes, I have given back to my Beloved Adopted Country, the United of America, as she has given me: My Home Sweet Home for the last 51 years +. I don’t teach Hatred, like all those people who are Hungry for their Power. They don’t care, as long as – “I can get That Power”. Shame on You!!! – All Hungry for Power.

    • It’s lovely to see someone who can spell & use good grammar and even BETTER, someone who loves America as his adopted home. You have the right ideas🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸❤️❗️

    • If you think America will never become communist you haven’t been paying attention.
      Half this country (mostly millennials) think (social -ism) is cool.
      And we all know social -ism is the train, and communism is the last stop.
      You cannot come together and unite with people that want to radical transform America into something it was never intended to be.

  5. There was a minister named Norman Matlin Thomas who always ran on the communist ticket for President. I think it was in the 50’s maybe early 60’s. He finally gave up and said from then on he didn’t need to run anymore because the democrats were becoming communists and someday America would become a communist nation and wondering what happened to all their freedoms. We the people, the true God loving, constitution loving,
    Respecting human life Americans need to prove him wrong or we will be very very sorry!

    • Country Girl a Russian leader said many years ago that the communist would someday take America without firing a shot. That time could be now.

      • Not to worry Dan. Many – many shots will be fired. The communists know not what they actually face. Freedom will not quietly fade away. We are watching, we are waiting.

      • Dan, I’m in agreement with you. Putin has got us hating on each other and talking Civil War. Once the carnage of war is over, the Russians will have a brand new playground called Amerika. Keep on the sunny side of life.

        • Are the Russians making the democrats impeach Trump?
          Are the Russians making democrats shout down free speech they don’t like?
          I was wondering how the Russians are inciting hatred.

          • Putin is a former KGB agent as you know. The Russians used social media as a valuable tool to spread disinformation about Secretary Clinton in order to get Mr Trump elected. Their campaign worked like a charm in my opinion. Just look at how much Americans hate each other. KGB is brilliant in these tactics.

          • They bought our main stream media! They are the Pravda of the former Soviet Union! They are CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, CNBC, MSNBC they speak the communist(Democrat Party) line. They provide lies as the truth and expect us to conform to their lies.

        • It was the FBI, not the Russians that exposed Clinton. Comey said she acted extremely negligently storing classified emails on a private server.
          And that was 3 years ago. You never answered my question.
          How are the Russians incited hatred?

          • You poor soul, you fall for all the conspiracy theories that far right espouses.
            I was fighting the Rsuusian influence in US affairs in late 60’s, anyi Vietnam rotests. At that time Russians bankrolled the movement by spending about $2 mill per year. In 90’s I had a pleasure to meet the paymaster after so many years. It was nice to reminisce about the events of the 60’s when we were on the opposite sides.
            This time around they using the internet, Instagram, Facebook it is costing a pittance to provide disinformation. They had 3 team in 2016, pro Trump, pro Hillary and racist team. The teams competed with each other and unexpectedly Trump team won.
            The Russian disinformation campaign is just stating for 2020.
            As for FBI, CIA NSA, it is that Trump cannot aqueous that he won a 2016 election with the Russian help.
            Bart went on the fishing expedition to Europe and Australia and came empty handed. They laughed him out of Italy, so much for the Trump’s lakey.

  6. Vasu, I haven’t met a democrat that was pro life! According to the ones running for President. Say There needs to be more abortions, euthetasia and assisted suicide to save the planet!
    They have zero respect for human life, only their own. They All believe the same things and NEVER reach across the aisle. They all need to be voted out of office!!

    • If there are any democrats that are pro life, they would keep quiet about it because the left is not tolerant of other opinions. Any pro life democrats would be shouted at or worse for letting their beliefs be known to other democrats.

  7. Okay, Republicans we must get out and vote in November. Let’s fill up Congress with all Republicans we must win back our Congress majority next month.

    • I am with you but let’s be careful that we don’t allow the phoney ones back. Look at how they vote, what they stand for!
      It is time to do the contract with America that won us the first time in decades under Newt Gingrich. But all house and Senate members must be on board!

  8. EVERY single one of the DEMONCRAPS need to be throw out of our government for their part in this ongoing COUP to overthrow a legally elected President ….Donald J. Trump……known as OPERATION CROSSFIRE HURRICANE…!! Put them in prison for TREASON….!!

    • MY DEAR COWGIRL. IN THIS COUNTRY OF OURS TREASON IS CARRIED OUT BY HANGINGS. JUST AS IT HAPPENED TO THE 4, 1 WOMAN, WHO WERE FOUND GUILTY OF TREASON AFTER THE ASSASSINATION OF OUR ABRAHAM LINCOLN. THEY HANGED PUBLICLY, PERIOD.

      • WRONG. Trying to overthrow a government is considered treason without being at war.
        The Rosenbergs were convicted of espionage after WW2 which is the same thing as treason.

  9. The Democrats are doing many illegal acts against President Trump, The Democrats know they can’t beat President Trump! The republicans need to investigate the Democrat party. We need to impeach Adam Shiff and get rid of Nancy Pelosi.The AMERICAN PEOPLE WANT TO KNOW WHO THE WHITLE BLOWER IS! ADAM SHIFF IS afraid THE AMERICAN PEOPLE will find out what a sneaky criminal Adam Shiff is.

  10. The democrats flip flop when it suites them,will do anything to win 2020.Cannot trust the likes of Polosie and her gang of cut throats

  11. John Bel Edwards is a pro-life Democrat, and the only Democratic governor in the South. Instead of demonizing Democrats, if pro-lifers really want to end abortion, it’s going to have to be bipartisan. I told Jim Frey of Berkeley Pro-Life over a decade ago that we (Democrats) never see pro-lifers venture beyond their own base. Rather than reach across the aisle to Democrats, feminists, liberals, etc., and try to bring them on board with protecting unborn children, they just play to the same old Ronald Reagan / Oliver North crowd.

    If pro-lifers really want to end abortion, opposition to abortion must come from across the political spectrum. Pro-lifers are going to have to venture beyond their own base and convince Democrats, feminists, liberals etc. to distinguish abortion from arguably victimless crimes like marijuana; to argue on secular grounds that the unborn are persons (secular arguments are religion-neutral, and thus applicable to everyone, including atheists and agnostics) and convince Democrats, feminists, liberals, etc. to see the killing of the unborn on par with domestic violence, hate crimes against LGBTs, etc.; and make the case to Americans that it’s possible to protect prenatal life without taking to draconian measures violating a new mother’s privacy and civil liberties in this regard.

    Robert Casey, the former Democratic governor of Pennsylvania, said he believed a pro-life liberal Democrat would easily be elected president: conservatives would vote for a pro-lifer, and liberals would vote for a Democrat articulating opposition to abortion as a secular and nonsectarian civil rights issue. In 1994, even archconservative Pat Buchanan had kind words for Robert Casey! If pro-life Democrats had greater visibility in past decades, perhaps Carol Crossed would have been the first female speaker of the House.

    After the 2016 election losses, Nancy Pelosi admits that the Democratic Party’s support of abortion has not been a winning issue. Pelosi spoke to the Washington Post about whether her party should support pro-life candidates or require that candidates support easy access to taxpayer-funded abortions through all nine months of pregnancy.

    Struggling after heavy election losses in 2016, many in the Democratic Party are debating whether to support pro-life candidates, especially in rural areas where voters tend to be pro-life. Some, like Pelosi, appear to be recognizing that the party’s support of abortion-on-demand-up-to-birth is losing them voters.

    Unfortunately, rather than seeing the abortion issue as a real loser for Democrats, especially in red states (crucial with winning the Electoral College!), Pelosi blamed Hillary Clinton’s loss on pro-life voters themselves! Clinton supported the unpopular platform of forcing taxpayers to directly fund abortions, and she promised to nominate Supreme Court justices who would uphold Roe v. Wade and abortion on demand up until birth, if elected.

    Pelosi told the Washington Post : “You know what? That’s why Donald Trump is president of the United States—the evangelicals and the Catholics, anti-marriage equality, anti-choice. That’s how he got to be president. Everything was trumped, literally and figuratively by that.”

    Pelosi, who supports abortion but describes herself as a Catholic, said many in her Catholic family are pro-life. She also mentioned U.S. Sen. Bob Casey from Pennsylvania, a Democrat with a mixed record on abortion.

    “You think I’m kicking them out of the Democratic Party?” Pelosi said.

    Jay Ware, a black Democrat in Illinois, said on the Democrats For Life email list as early as 2004 that it should be automatic: just as the Republican Party supports pro-choice candidates like Rudy Giuliani and Arnold Schwarzenegger in blue states like New York and California where pro-lifers can’t win and even has Republican president George W. Bush campaign for them, Jay Ware said the Democratic Party should similarly support pro-life Democrats in red states where pro-choicers can’t win, and have Democratic presidents campaign for pro-life Democrats, etc.

    Kristen Day of Democrats For Life said in 2014, “Roughly a third of the Democratic Party is pro-life. And while many do not call themselves liberal, they share the values which seem to identify with liberalism, particularly a commitment to helping the vulnerable and providing a social safety net.”

    The Democratic Party platform should support: Animal Rights, Defending the Affordable Care Act, Ending Citizens United, Ending Marijuana Prohibition, Giving Greater Visibility to Pro-Life Democrats, Gun Control, Net Neutrality, Raising the Minimum Wage to $15 an Hour, Responding to the Scientific Consensus on Global Warming, and a Sustainable Energy Policy.
