At +7 in the generic congressional ballot, Democrats have now matched their strongest lead in Civiqs’ polling all year: x Civiqs Results Immediately post-Kavanaugh, you could see Republicans get a small boost … all the way to a -5 deficit. THAT’S how static public opinion is—the most momentous partisan battle of the year, and it moved numbers a couple of points. That’s it. As you can imagine, Republicans and Democrats are utterly stratified. So who moved?
Campaign Action More than 80 days past a federal judge’s reunification order, the children are still not with their parents. Tuesday, October 16, marks 82 days since Judge Dana Sabraw ordered Trump officials to reunite the thousands of migrant children who were kidnapped from the arms of parents at the southern border, yet 66 kids continue to remain separated from their parents and under U.S. custody, according to newly-released numbers from the administration. One of these 66 children is aged five or under. Of the 66 kids, the parents of 50 have already been deported. Trump officials have struggled to reunite children with deported parents because of their own cruelty, after having torn apart families with no plan set in place on how to reunite them. Now, as 66 kids remain separated, Donald Trump is floating officially reviving family separation, both as an election strategy to rile up his base, and because White House aide and white supremacist Stephen Miller likes it. Meanwhile, Trump is also bloating up his so-called “temporary” prison camp for unaccompanied migrant kids in the Texas desert, adding more time to the months some have already spent in Health and Human Services (HHS) custody rather than releasing them right away to sponsors, who are oftentimes relatives. This “temporary” prison camp was already been extended several times, going from 400 beds this past summer, to as many as 3,800 beds by the end of this year. Enough. Children do not belong in detention. Help GOTV by signing up to write letters to unlikely voters in key districts so we can win a Democratic Congress that will finally hold officials accountable.
What’s the woman at the center of all those Republican scare tactics, Nancy Pelosi, thinking about? Winning elections, for one thing. And, if Democrats win the House, showing how the party would govern. She gave Politico a little preview—though she also said she’s not even thinking about whether she’ll be speaker herself. Democrats would start off with campaign finance reform, lower prescription drug prices, gun background checks, and a bill to protect Dreamers, Pelosi said. And while Democrats will conduct oversight on the Trump administration because “the American people deserve the truth,” she doesn’t want it to be in the “pound-of-flesh club” style of Republicans, because “What is important is for us not to be them. We are not going to be them.” Pelosi won’t be surprised when there’s an October surprise—she’s focused on being ready for it: An intentional surprise which we should expect and you always expect it. That’s why you build redundancy in your campaign. … We just have to own the ground and get out the vote and understand that it doesn’t matter what happens, we have to do that. Fight for it.

Yesterday, Donald Trump told a gathered press pool that he had spoken with Saudi King Salman on the phone and the king assured him they had nothing to do with the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was lured to the Saudi consulate in Turkey where he was reportedly murdered and dismembered with a bone saw so his body could be smuggled out. Today, Saudi authorities are reportedly prepared to admit that Khashoggi died in the consulate and Turkish authorities say they recovered evidence of his murder. xBREAKING: Turkish official tells AP police found evidence in Saudi Consulate that Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi was killed there.Ã¢ÂÂ The Associated Press (@AP) October 16, 2018 A reporter for The Washington Post and a U.S. resident, Jamal Khashoggi’s murder should alarm every one of us. Did U.S. Intelligence have advance warning that his life was in danger? Two years into Trump’s first (and hopefully only) term, he still has not named ambassadors to Saudi Arabia or Turkey. Trump decided to send Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to get to the bottom of this murder. xJust spoke to the King of Saudi Arabia who denies any knowledge of whatever may have happened Ã¢ÂÂto our Saudi Arabian citizen.Ã¢ÂÂ He said that they are working closely with Turkey to find answer. I am immediately sending our Secretary of State to meet with King!Ã¢ÂÂ Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 15, 2018 Notice the not-so-casual racism at play: Trump won’t even recognize that Khashoggi is a U.S. resident, instead hinting that this is Saudi business, not ours. Surely Secretary of State Mike Pompeo would take a more serious, sober approach, right? Well, here is Pompeo with Saudi Arabian crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, smiling and laughing it up for the cameras. Can anyone watch the video below and believe that Donald Trump’s administration is going to retaliate for the murder of a U.S. resident in any way, shape or form?
Here’s the most predictable quote in the world from a Republican who doesn’t give a damn about the deficit, except as an excuse to justify gutting Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. x(Bloomberg) -- Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says the U.S. budget deficit is «disturbing» and spending on entitlement programs must be addressed by both Republicans and Democrats.— Brian Chappatta (@BChappatta) October 16, 2018 Remember that massive tax cut McConnell forced through last year? Remember how he said «I not only don't think it will increase the deficit, I think it will be beyond revenue neutral»? «In other words, I think it will produce more than enough to fill that gap,» he said. He lied. Because that’s what McConnell does. He lies. Everybody knew this was coming. Every economist and budget analyst in the nation predicted a ballooning of the deficit with that tax cut, and those of us who have been paying attention to Republicans for decades know what that means. Because we know that Republicans don’t give a damn about the deficit. They do give a damn about gutting social insurance programs. They love their tax cuts for the rich, and having justification for destroying the nation’s most successful and popular programs is the icing.

Portland-based artist Josh Keyes (previously) paints hyperrealistic depictions of what he perceives the world might look like after the fall of humans. Animals such as sharks, tigers, and bulls remain as the final witnesses to the aftermath of human destruction—observing blazing fires, investigating displaced commercial objects, and swimming amongst melted ice caps. Monuments and statues also remain in this post-apocalyptic world, like in the artist’s recent painting Siren, which observes a graffiti-covered angel with a horn being splashed with the ocean’s high tide.

A weekly journey through the vast landscape of college football, along with a few brief asides. Cliched storyline of the week Every year, a midseason, upset-laden Saturday in college football crashes ashore without warning and appears to tear the existing infrastructure asunder. Such was Week 7, 2018, in which four top-10 teams succumbed to seemingly inferior opponents, and another three top-10 teams eked out victories over seemingly less potent competition. The irony of such moments is that they often, at least temporarily, tend to allow us to assume that the chaff has been cleared away and the postseason picture now makes more sense. But does it? Here we are again, at roughly the halfway point of yet another season, and our instincts tell us to presume that the way is clear for the four remaining undefeated Power Five teams (less N.C. State, the inevitable outlier that if it somehow defeats Clemson this weekend will suddenly require us to take the Wolfpack seriously for the first since…well, pretty much ev
A month ago, following a victory over the New England Patriots to mark a 2-0 start, the Jacksonville Jaguars seemed to announce their staying power atop the AFC. Sure, 2017 brought them to the doorstep of the Super Bowl, but sometimes such runs can be flukes. Rebounding and taking one from the Pats, even in September, suggested a sustained fortitude. Plus, Blake Bortles throwing four touchdowns is shocking enough to seem important, even if it’s just one regular-season game. And yet here we are four weeks later, and suddenly the Jaguars are faltering. It’s one thing to have lost three of their last four. That’s bad enough. But the way they’ve lost the last two weeks has to be disconcerting for a team billed as — and proud of its status — a defensive powerhouse. One reason for the setback is the play of Bortles, which is something Jaguars fans have been conditioned to expect. In the last two weeks, however, it’s also been a surprisingly sieve-like defense that has added to their downfall. On Sunday, the Jaguar
