House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi doubled-down on her anti-Trump rhetoric this week, saying “civilization as we know it as at risk” should the Republicans continue to lead Congress following the 2018 midterm elections.
Pelosi was speaking with Rolling Stone magazine when she was asked to comment on how the Democrats were prepared to flip districts won by President Trump in 2016; saying “How do you narrow it down?”
“Civilization as we know it today is at risk in this election. We have to win. We have to win. So you can’t spread your money too thinly, because you can run the risk,” said the leading Democrat.
“If the election were today – no question we would win. But you have to be aware of the undercurrents. Because you don’t know what can come along – and what comes along eclipses what you’re doing,” she added.
Pelosi’s comments come as the over-hyped “blue wave” predicted for this November continues to crash and burn, with some polls showing the once double-digit Democrat advantage reduced to just a few points.

BLUE WAVE CRASHING: Democrat Advantage TUMBLES Ahead of 2018 Midterms
The Democratic Party’s national advantage over their Republican opponents continued to collapse this week; shrinking to four percentage points after double-digit leads just months ago.
A recent survey by CBS News shows the liberal advantage largely evaporating ahead of the 2018 midterms, with 36 percent of those asked saying the GOP should retain control of Congress and 40% hoping for a left-wing “blue wave” in November.
The shrinking advantage and surprising poll numbers were conducted after the President’s “zero tolerance” policy on illegal immigration made national headlines, with the Commander-in-Chief urging Congress to find a permanent solution to the escalating border crisis.
“CBS’s poll, which sampled 2,063 adults between June 21-22, 2018 and has a margin of error of 2.6 percent, also shows there are a significant number of Trump supporters who opposed the zero-tolerance policy but did not hold the president responsible. The results also suggest voters are compartmentalizing the issue,” writes the Daily Caller.

CALIFORNIA CHAOS: Plan to SPLIT STATE into 3 GAINS STEAM Ahead of Midterms
The proposal to split California into three separate states is gaining traction just months ahead of the 2018 midterms, with many voters agreeing that the Golden State is simply too diverse and large to properly govern.
The movement -dubbed by many as Cal3- calls for the division of California into three smaller states; each anchored by a major metropolitan center serving as the territory’s capital.
While the direct plan has yet to be revealed, many are calling for the creation of California with Los Angeles as the state capital, Northern California with San Francisco as the capital, and Southern California with San Diego serving as the capital.
“This is about people who want California to be fixed and saved and this is the way to do it,” the bids lead proponent told Fox News. “We have crumbling infrastructure, dirty water and failing schools. In almost every statistic, 49 states are doing better.”
