We Should Not Send a “Prada Socialist” to the Senate


Voters in Arizona have a critical choice before them this November when they consider who to send to the United States Senate.

On the one hand, there’s liberal Kyrsten Sinema. For this campaign, she’s pretended to be a moderate who will consider all points of view. But her record belies the facts. She once proclaimed herself a “Prada Socialist” who supported higher taxes, government-run health care, and lobbied to shut down Luke Air Force Base near Phoenix.

And then there’s Martha McSally. She was the first American woman to fly in combat and has served our country with honor and distinction. She’s been a tireless advocate for Arizona families in Congress, supporting tax cuts, more affordable health care, and a balanced budget.

In Arizona and across the country, voters face important choices that will profoundly impact our future success. On November 6, don’t forget to make your voice heard.

Katie Pavlich: The Big Issues Surrounding the 2018 Election


The first big electoral test for President Donald Trump will take place on November 6.

A quick look at history would indicate Republicans should lose seats in the House and possibly in the Senate. But—just as President Trump’s tenure in the Oval Office has bucked the status quo—independent and conservative voters must do the same in the 2018-midterm elections.

This election isn’t simply about Republicans vs. Democrats. It’s much bigger than that: It really is about right and wrong. It’s about free markets vs. socialism; due process vs. mob rule; civility vs. violence.

As election day inches closer, Democrats have proven time and again that their vicious behavior should not be rewarded with power. Not with a single seat.

Independent and conservative voters must hold the line on Election Day in order to ensure a safe and prosperous future.

Dennis Prager talks with Lisa Daftari about Rutger’s invitation, then dis-invitation, to speak at her Alma Mater because a handful of students were “uncomfortable.” Alan Greenspan, former Chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve, talks with Hugh Hewitt about his book Capitalism in America.

Losing Her Million Dollar Bet


Senator Elizabeth Warren wants to affirm her Native American identity and to collect a million dollars in the process: President Trump in a rally promised to pay that much if DNA tests could prove that she’s an Indian.

She cites tests indicating her genetic Indian ancestry is as much as 1 in 64, or as little as 1 in 1,024. No: no recognized tribe in America would accept a single great-great-great-great grandfather as proof.

Worst of all, Warren’s insistence on the “one drop of blood” standard is inherently racist; what does DNA mean without history of cultural affinity or communal participation?

Jerry Bowyer: The Kavanaugh Effect on the Upcoming Midterms


The long national nightmare surrounding the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court is over.

Democrats in the Senate, the media and protesters were unable to stop Kavanaugh—despite throwing everything but the kitchen sink at him.

The media narrative—initially—was that this catastrophe would energize Democrats in the mid-terms.

The problem with that narrative is that the data shows that the Republicans are even more energized than their Democratic counterparts.

Before Kavanaugh was confirmed, the political betting market PredictIt gave Republicans a 68 percent chance of keeping the Senate. Now they’re at 85 percent. In the House, GOP numbers went from 34 percent, up slightly to 36 percent.

The GOP may well gain seats in the Senate and could even possibly hold onto the House.
