Hey Identifier, #ronjohnson #mandelabarnes #midterms2022 Across two states with Republican-held Senate seats that could prove pivotal to control of the chamber in this fall's elections, one incumbent faces an evenly divided electorate while the Democrat holds a narrow edge in the other, according to new CNN polls conducted by SSRS. In Wisconsin, the survey shows no clear leader, with 50% of likely voters behind Republican Sen. Ron Johnson and 49% backing his Democratic challenger, state Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes. In the race for retiring Republican Sen. Pat Toomey's seat in Pennsylvania, Democratic state Lt. Gov. John Fetterman stands at 51% support to Republican candidate Mehmet Oz's 45% support among likely voters, an advantage narrowly outside of the survey's margin of error.

We discuss growing tensions within the illegitimate Republican Legislature between the old Scott Walker and Trumpist factions. Speaker Vos finally testifies on Trump's efforts to overturn the Wisconsin 2020 election, becoming the last witness to be interviewed by the historic January 6th Committee. Meanwhile the Wisconsin Election Commission deadlocks and blocks (for now) MAGA Republican Representative Janel Brandtjen's scheme to acquire personal data of every Wisconsin voter. We talk about the entry of conservative celebrity judge Jennifer Dorow into the 2023 WI Supreme Court election – who surprisingly agrees with Mandela Barnes that Wisconsin's cash bail system is broken and not keeping us safe. Senator Baldwin successfully passes historic marriage equality legislation, achieving a huge progressive bipartisan win. We close by discussing the proposed Albertsons-Kroger grocery mega merger and the Biden Administration's intervention into a rail workers strike.

We unflinchingly evaluate the 2022 election in Wisconsin, both the good and the bad. We celebrate the high turnout and overall surprisingly strong performance of Democrats in Wisconsin and nationally, from the Governor Tony Evers victory to a possible Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate. We also don't hide our deep disappointment in the close loss of Mandela Barnes and the despair of the gerrymandered state legislature. We close by looking forward to the Spring 2023 Supreme Court election where reversing the historically undemocratic Legislative gerrymander and removing voter suppression rules will be on the ballot.
It's Wednesday, November 9th, A.D. 2022. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. (Adam@TheWorldview.com) By Jonathan Clark and Adam McManus Thailand legalized abortions up to 20 weeks of pregnancy In Thailand, the country's Public Health Ministry legalized abortions up to 20 weeks of pregnancy at the end of last month. The move extends a previous law which allowed the murder of unborn babies up to 12 weeks. Pro-abortion legislation in the country is new. Thailand had criminalized abortion as recently as 2020. Canadian court acquitted pastor for in-person worship services Last Tuesday, the Provincial Court of Alberta acquitted a Canadian pastor of violating COVID-19 restrictions on in-person worship services. Pastor Tim Stephens of Fairview Baptist Church spent three weeks in jail last year for refusing to abide by the government's worship bans. In a blog post, Pastor Stephens praised God for the victory while calling for repentance in Canada. He wrote, “Our society with its laws, mandates, and opinions reflect a change of ‘god' with corresponding views of authority and humanity that will lead to dystopia unless there is repentance.” Psalm 37:1-3 says, “Fret not yourself because of evildoers; be not envious of wrongdoers! For they will soon fade like the grass and wither like the green herb. Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.” Victors include Huckabee Sanders, DeSantis, Rubio, and Polis Tens of millions of Americans headed to the polls yesterday for the 2022 midterm elections. At stake is control of both houses of Congress and 36 governorships. FiveThirtyEight released their final election forecast yesterday. Republicans were widely favored to win the U.S. House of Representatives. They were also slightly favored to win the Senate with a 59% chance of control over Democrats' 41% chance. The victors included New Hampshire Republican Governor Chris Sununu, Arkansas Republican Governor-elect Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis, Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio, Ohio Republican Senator-elect J.D. Vance, and Colorado Democratic Governor Jared Polis, a self-professed homosexual. Republican Greg Abbott beat Democrat Richard “Beto” O'Rourke Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott beat celebrity Democratic candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O'Rourke 55.8% to 43.0%, reports the Texas Tribune. Listen to what the Fox News panel had to say about O'Rourke last night, starting with Britt Hume. HUME: “O'Rourke is becoming the Charlie Crist of Texas.” (chuckles) MARTHA MacCALLUM: “He's gone from the cover of Vanity Fair magazine and this shining hope of the Democrat Party. Jessica, your thoughts on what has happened to Beto O'Rourke. Does this seal the deal? Is he done now in politics or not?” JESSICA TARLOV: “If the evening goes as I expect it to for Stacey Abrams as well, there's going to be a lot of soul searching about where you're dumping your money when you go on Act Blue. There are a lot of people whose races are a lot closer. “These are celebrity candidates. I think that there have been incredible messaging moments that are going to have rallied the Democratic base and made you really focus on the issues that matter to us as a party. They are seemingly just not great candidates to win statewide office and I hope people will take stock of that.” Senate races too close to call at 10:33pm central Tuesday night According to Fox News, a number of the hotly contested races for U.S. Senate were too close to call at The Worldview's press deadline last night at 10:33pm Central. They include the races in Georgia between Democrat Senator Raphael Warnock and Republican challenger Hershel Walker, in Pennsylvania between Democrat John Fetterman and Republican Mehmet Oz, and in Wisconsin between Republican Senator Ron Johnson and Democrat challenger Mandela Barnes. A look at the past 22 midterm elections In a column entitled “The 2022 Midterm Elections: What The Historical Data Suggests,” John Wooley wrote, “In the 22 midterm elections from 1934 -2018, the President's party has averaged a loss of 28 House seats and four Senate seats. The president's party gained seats in the House only three times, but gained seats in the Senate on six occasions. The president's party has gained seats in both houses only twice. “The incumbent president's ability to launch new major policy initiatives would be greatly weakened under divided government. If the Democrats lose control of either House, the Administration can expect to be the target of numerous congressional inquiries.” New York Christians want to be able to defend themselves at church A church in New York State is challenging a law that bans guns in places of worship. The New York law prohibits the carrying of firearms in houses of worship regardless of whether a church “prefers to permit—or even encourage—people to carry a firearm on its premises.” First Liberty Institute filed the lawsuit last Thursday on behalf of His Tabernacle Family Church. The lawsuit accuses New York of making churches choose between their First and Second Amendment rights as well as leaving them particularly vulnerable to violence. Daughter of 107-year-old South Carolinian woman gives God the glory And finally, a Christian woman from South Carolina celebrated her 107th birthday last month. Adell Julie Thompson was born October 10, 1915. She told WLTX News 19 she does what the Bible tells her: “I had no dream of being 107 years. But the Lord spared me, and I try to do the right thing.” Thompson has lived through 18 U.S. presidencies. Her legacy includes three children, six grandchildren, fourteen great grandchildren, and three great, great grandchildren. Thompson's daughter gave God the glory for her mother's long life. DAUGHTER: “I get to be here to do this interview about my mama, with my momma alive and well, in her right mind, my family members that's all around it. That's all I can say. To God be the glory and I thank God for every moment of it.” Proverbs 3:16 says of the wisdom from God, “Length of days is in her right hand, in her left hand riches and honor.” Close And that's The Worldview in 5 Minutes on this Wednesday, November 9th, in the year of our Lord 2022.

EXPERTS FRANÇOIS CLEMENCEAU Rédacteur en chef international « Le Journal du Dimanche » NICOLE BACHARAN Politologue spécialiste des États-Unis Auteure de « Le monde selon Trump » LAURENCE NARDON Chercheure Responsable du programme États-Unis de l'IFRI GILLES PARIS Éditorialiste Ancien correspondant à Washington - « Le Monde » Coauteur de « Amérique années Trump » Deux ans après l'élection présidentielle, Donald Trump et les Républicains appellent à faire déferler une « immense vague rouge » sur les élections américaines de mi-mandat, qui se tiennent demain aux Etats-Unis, convaincus de pouvoir l'emporter. Avec à la clé : le contrôle du Congrès et la limitation de la capacité de Joe Biden à faire adopter des lois pour la seconde partie de son mandat, mais aussi, la préparation de la prochaine présidentielle. Ce scrutin est vu en effet par beaucoup comme un possible « tremplin » pour la candidature en 2024 du milliardaire qui a laissé ces derniers jours peu de place aux doutes sur ses ambitions et pourrait même se déclarer dès le week-end prochain. Et ce alors que le gouverneur de Floride Ron DeSantis, en pleine ascension, apparaît de plus en plus comme un possible candidat républicain en 2024. Du côté des démocrates, on jette également toutes ses forces dans la dernière ligne droite pour tenter de convaincre et de mobiliser les électeurs. Des candidats qui ont beaucoup fait campagne ces derniers mois sur l'avortement, la Cour suprême des États-Unis ayant dynamité fin juin le droit des Américaines à interrompre leur grossesse. Cette décision de la plus haute juridiction du pays a offert aux démocrates une embellie cet été dans les enquêtes d'opinion, alimentant les spéculations sur leur possible victoire lors de ce scrutin, traditionnellement défavorable au parti du président en place. Mais avec une inflation à 8 % la question du pouvoir d'achat s'est imposée aux Etats-Unis et l'économie est devenue la priorité des Américains. Ce qu'ont bien compris les républicains qui ne parlent que de cela depuis des semaines. Résultat : dans les derniers sondages, l'avance de certains candidats démocrates s'est bien réduite. Alors pour tenter de reprendre la main dans des élections qui s'annoncent très serrées après une campagne marquée par les menaces de mort et les violences, Joe Biden et son prédécesseur Barack Obama ont multiplié ces derniers jours les meetings, exhortant à « voter » pour protéger la « démocratie ». 40 millions d'électeurs ont déjà voté par anticipation mais on s'attend comme il y a deux ans à une vague de contestation des résultats qui ne seraient pas favorables aux républicains. Nombre de dirigeants proches de leur champion Donald Trump, lequel n'a jamais reconnu sa défaite à la présidentielle de novembre 2020, se sont dit prêts à contester les résultats. C'est le cas par exemple, de la candidate Kari Lake au poste de gouverneur en Arizona. Elle a refusé de dire qu'elle respecterait un résultat en forme de défaite face à son adversaire démocrate dans cet État divisé du sud des États-Unis. Même chose dans le Wisconsin (nord) où le sénateur républicain sortant Ron Johnson n'a pas dit qu'il s'inclinerait en cas de défaite face au démocrate Mandela Barnes. Alors qu'est-ce qui a changé, deux ans après l'arrivée de Joe Biden à la Maison-Blanche ? Quels sont les enjeux de ces midterms ? Donald Trump va-t-il faire son retour ? Ron DeSantis peut-il le détrôner à la tête du parti ? Et quel impact le rachat de Twitter par Elon Musk peut-il avoir sur la démocratie américaine ?

The 2022 midterms are coming soon, but we at Gaslit Nation are still dealing with the unresolved business of 2016! That includes Brexit, which has produced yet another wanker in the revolving door prime minister shambles that has been going on for the last six years. We share our doubts that a guy worth more than King Charles has the interests of the common man in mind and extend our sympathy to our British listeners. Back in the states, the midterms are heating up – and “heating up”, in modern American parlance, means new coup plots are being hatched, new insurrectionists are volunteering to be vote counters, and new upstanding citizens are being threatened with death or prison for the crime of…voting. And what is Merrick Garland, who vowed to protect the elections, doing about it? As usual, nothing! His free pass to the January 6 attackers have left us wary of more post-election violence to come, and the admin's refusal to protect voting rights leaves us concerned about the ability of our fellow Americans to cast their ballot. That said, we encourage you to vote! We are disillusioned but yes we are voting, and we are having several GOTV events and get-togethers this week. Then special guests drop by Gaslit Nation: Chloe Maxmin, a state senator in Maine, the youngest woman ever elected, in 2018, to Maine's House of Representatives, and her campaign manager Canyon Woodward. Together, Maxmin and Woodward are the authors of Dirt Road Revival: How to Rebuild Rural Politics and Why Our Future Depends On It. They walk us through their battle-hardened lessons on winning in a rural conservative district, and how to build progressive infrastructure in rural America to protect our democracy election cycle after election cycle. Join their community work at DirtRoadRevival.com. For our Patreon bonus, available to subscribers at the Truth-Teller level or higher, we continue to answer questions from our listeners at the Democracy Defender level and higher about corruption, freedom, and the fight to carry on in tough times.

Our regular weekly episode is and will always be free, and that is because of listeners like you. We know these are tough economic times, and we are feeling the pinch as well, so we are particularly grateful for your support!
John Heilemann welcomes David Axelrod, the former Senior Political Adviser to President Barack Obama and host of The Axe Files podcast on CNN Audio. As we approach the crucial midterm elections in early November, Axelrod offers his thoughts on the key races that may determine the fate of America's democracy going forward, including: whether or not recent political winds have shifted in favor of Republicans and what this means to their chances of taking over both the Huse and the Senate; the Democrats over-reliance on the issue of abortion and how they should change their messaging going forward to improve their standing with voters; the rise of Marjorie Taylor Greene and the possibility that she could be a presidential candidate one day; the effect John Fetterman's health is having on the Pennsylvania Senate race and whether he's vulnerable enough on crime to tip the outcome in Dr. Mehmet Oz's favor; will Black Democratic voters in Georgia show up in numbers large enough to keep Rafael Warnock's Senate seat secure from Herschel Walker; whether the Republican stalwarts Mike Lee and Chuck Grassley will safely hold their positions in the Senate; how Mandela Barnes should be attacking the Ron Johnson campaign in Wisconsin; that Kari Lake's performative abilities outstrip those of even Donald Trump; and the danger that the Democratic Party now caters too much to college educated metropolitans and has lost its touch with America's working and middle classes.

Bush and Arnold Schwarzenegger and now a leading Never Trumper, Matthew Dowd, and former White House communications director for Barack Obama and co-host of Showtime's The Circus, Jennifer Palmieri. They discuss the recent developments that will likely determine the outcomes of the key senate and gubernatorial races in the upcoming midterm elections, including Raphael Warnock's and Herschel Walker's surprising performances in their recent debate in Georgia; the effect John Fetterman's health crisis is having on his battle in Pennsylvania against Dr. Mehmet Oz; the likelihood that Ron Johnson will keep his senate seat in Wisconsin against challenger Mandela Barnes despite his unlikeability; and assess the chances that election-denier Kari Lake has to become governor of Arizona and and the possibility that South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem may be more vulnerable than most pundits realize. They also talk about whether Joe Biden's recent decriminalization of marijuana will impact the midterms; and dig deep into the what looks to be the final hearing of the January 6th House Select Committee, including Nancy Pelosi's bad-assery and concerns that the Secret Service may be deeply compromised by the MAGA movement.

Donald Trump says he is willing to testify in front of the January 6 Committee, only if it's live. Tucker Carlson just gave TYT a little bit of extra publicity. Roger Stone threw a tantrum after he found out that he was not pardoned and simultaneously calls Ivanka Trump an “abortionist b****.” During Senator Ron Johnson's and Mandela Barnes' debate, the audience let out a chuckle after Senator Johnson claims he was set up by the FBI. Representative Steve Scalise was just caught in a blatant lie.Host: John Iadarola, Cenk Uygur Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
Joy Reid leads this episode of The ReidOut with more of that incredible video of Speaker Pelosi on January 6th demanding protection from Donald Trump's government and making sure lawmakers of both parties stayed safe, while Trump infamously did nothing. Also in this episode, we address the chilling new questions being raised by the January 6th select committee about the Secret Service and members of the FBI. Plus, Sen. Ron Johnson might have a second career in stand-up comedy, because the audience sure was laughing at him at his debate with Mandela Barnes, and he wasn't even trying to be funny. Then, Herschel Walker and Raphael Warnock squared off on Friday in the first and only Georgia Senate debate ahead of the midterm elections. Joy and her guests bring you their expert analysis. All this and more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.

FULL SHOW HERE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xuJbB18O-Wc&ab_channel=TheMajorityReportw%2FSamSeder It's Day 2 of Sam reporting from the Mass Torts Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada! He and Emma begin by running through updates on the 2022 midterm debate season, footage from Pelosi and Schumer on January 6th, before Sam meets with Ring of Fire Radio host Farron Cousins as they walk through the ten big senate races to watch in the 2022 midterms, watching Ron Johnson respond to his opponent's genuine compliment with outright vitriol, discussing the Florida DNC's tactic of running the same losing candidates year after year, and contextualizing the failing Trump legal battles. Then, Sam is joined by tort lawyer and early Air-America investor Mike Papantonio as they discuss the role of tort law in holding corporations accountable in both the legal and public realms at a point in American politics where everything from Congress and the Courts to the Media is driven by the profit incentive, walking through his biggest cases in tort law, and the constant presence of internal corporate documents from actuaries walking through the necessary profits to offset the legal costs of future injuries and harm they KNOW their product will cause. They also touch on the cases on HSBC's money laundering for terrorists and cartels (resulting in solely corporate fines), the Camp Lejeune water contamination, and more, walking through the myriad levels of awareness from inside the corporation to the highest levels of the executive branch. Next, lawyer Michael Watts joins to dive into his work studying potential causes in the exponential increase in autism diagnosis over the last few decades, including the clear lack of evidence around the impact of certain vaccine ingredients, and the growing evidence of a correlation between the use of acetaminophen during pregnancy and an autism spectrum disorder diagnosis later in life. Sarah Papantonio then joins as she explores her recent case taking on the impact of baby formula companies causing premature babies to develop necrotizing enterocolitis by misadvertising their products as human milk, rather than the cow's milk base it actually used. They also tackle the greater exploitative history of the baby formula industry, before parsing through the difference between multi-district legislation (mass tort suits) and class action, and exploring how federal governments can get involved in tort cases. Sam and Emma wrap up the show by diving deeper into various midterm debates including Ron Johnson being pushed around by Mandela Barnes (yet still looking worse) and Tudor Dixon's transphobic closing remarks, also looking at Charlie Kirk's response to Alex Jones' Sandy Hook case, and Ben Shapiro dancing around the intense antisemitism of his conservative colleagues.

On Monday's Mark Levin Show, the media in America are more than corrupt and pathetic, they take the attention of the nation off things that matter. The best example is a young Youtuber who was beaten and killed in Iran for not wearing a hijab. Then her mother hung herself after seeing her daughter's body. If you watch the mainstream media, they pay no attention to this. This is happening while Putin is killing and torturing Ukrainians and threatening America with nukes. How come the Squad doesn't talk about the Palestinian tortured and killed after she was outed as gay? Instead, the media and Democrats tell us Herschel Walker is a threat to country. Then, Kanye West is under fire for tweets remarking on Jews. Evangelical Christians are the most respectful people you'll ever meet but making comments about going "Defcon 3" on Jews is unacceptable. This rhetoric was spouted by the eugenicists and then embraced by the Third Reich. Later, a judge agreed to adopt America First Legal's election integrity measures as a result of video evidence showing malfeasance with ballot drop boxes. This is a win for election integrity. Meanwhile, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and his stooges like Sen. Lisa Murkowski must be defeated because all he does is destroy the conservative candidates that get in his way such as his latest attack on Alaska's Kelly Tshibaka. Afterward, Sen. Ron Johnson joins the show to explain that individuals like Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes who praised Rev. Jeremiah Wright who hates America's founding and principles and will vote that way if elected to the US Senate. Johnson reiterated fundamentally transforming America will fundamentally destroy it.
