I'm going to basically just post a couple videos that I feel explain this election much better than I could. There were reports of voter problems in several states, which was expected, and will be investigated. The Democrats did take back the House, but it seems most feel the Senate being held by Rep.'s and increasing their seats was much more important. We will see. Elections: FREEDOM vs Fraud On The Ballot Ep. 845 What Really Happened Last Night. The Dan Bongino Show 11/7/2018. Both Dr. Janda and Dan Bongino do a good job of explaining the election, what took place, and what it could mean in the future. US mid-term election results 2018: Maps, charts and analysis Nov, 7, 2018 "In a dramatic election night President Donald Trump's Republican Party retained control of the Senate and the Democrats took control of the House of Representatives." snip There's a lot of charts, maps, figures on this site explaining the election results. I can tell you that my state rejected the climate change initiative they had on our ballot. My state is a "blue" state, and I found it amazing that in multiple sections where there should have been 1 Dem and 1 Rep opposing each other, there was no Rep. even running. I found that hard to fathom as in, if you don't run, you can't win. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-46076389
Privacy Is Not a Barrier to Trade June 4, 2015 By Margot E. Kaminski Sen.Elizabeth Warren tried to stop the Senate from approving "Fast Track" trade rules.

"On Wednesday, WikiLeaks released the draft text of the biggest international agreement you’ve probably never heard of: the Trade in Services Agreement, or TISA. And buried in one of the 12 leaked chapters (which are mostly on things like “air transport services” and “competitive delivery services”) is a volatile and crucial debate about online privacy and the global Internet. Free trade agreements now regulate the Internet, determining digital policies across borders and around the world. TISA in particular addresses digital privacy, a critical issue at home and abroad. Yet the negotiations are not being held in a normal venue for discussing human rights or even ordinary law. TISA, like other trade agreements, is negotiated through a byzantine, readily corruptible process known as “fast track,” which Congress is about to renew. It is unacceptable for a professed democracy to address issues of this magnitude without meaningful public accountability. Trade agreements used to focus on things like tariffs, but they aren’t just about trade anymore. They consist of hundreds of chapters of detailed regulations, on subjects ranging from textiles to intellectual property law. TISA purports to promote fair and open global competition in services, thus increasing jobs. (You may have also heard about the Trans-Pacific Partnership, another trade agreement currently being negotiated and criticized. This one’s even more mammoth.) TISA is being negotiatedbetween 23 countries representing some 75 percent of the global services market. Buried in its e-commerce annex are rules that will reshape the relationship between the free flow of information and online privacy." snip http://www.slate.com/articles/technology/future_tense/2015/06/trade_in_services_agreement_could_change_the_global_internet.html
