We have a golden opportunity in the 2022 midterms to make lasting change in America, at least it could be the start of it.
We must take advantage of that opportunity because we are facing real danger in America. Just look around.
We have a major crisis at the border which was self-inflicted by Joe Biden when he scrapped both the border wall and Trump’s “Remain in Mexico Policy.” Nearly 2 million illegal immigrants are expected to invade America this year.
And it’s not as if Biden’s decision is even financially prudent; now that Biden has stopped any construction on the border wall, there is over $100 million worth of material just sitting there, rusting away.
Maria Bartiromo appeared on Varney & Company on Fox Business and said cartels are advertising on TikTok that they will pay $1,000 to anyone who can provide a get-away car to people they bring across the border.
And it’s not just the border area that’s a disaster zone. All of Biden’s America is.
On the banking and surveillance front, the Biden admin tentatively announced that it wants banks to report inflows and outflows within accounts of $600 or more to the IRS.
There is also the massive fight over Critical Race Theory. Parents are protesting it being taught in our public schools and the DOJ is directing FBI agents to investigate “acts of violence” (none have happened) at school board meetings.
Inflation is skyrocketing at levels we haven’t seen in 30 years. The Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) rose 4.3% in the latest report. PCE measures consumer spending on things like services and durable goods.
Gas prices have risen to a 14-year high at over $3 a gallon. I don’t want to put the exact number because it just keeps going up, rising faster than the tally of illegal immigrants rushing across the border!
Oh, and Biden signed a $1.9 trillion relief package that paid people an extra $300 a week of unemployment benefits through September in an economy that was already recovering.
Foreign policy under this administration is a disaster. The Afghanistan pullout left thirteen Americans dead and triggered another migrant crisis as thousands of Afghan refugees were relocated to the U.S.
Biden’s nominee for Comptroller of the Currency, Saule Omarova is a communist and wants to end banking as we know it. She wants to see our private banking institutions basically hand everything over to the Federal Reserve which means the government would control your funds.
We have local governments defunding the police by millions of dollars per year.
Our two biggest cities in America have imposed strict vaccine mandates. The Los Angeles City Council voted 11-2 to require anyone entering bars, restaurants, nail salons, gyms and wineries to name a few, to show proof of vaccination.
New York City has essentially done the same thing.
Joe Biden gave a press conference and said all companies with over 100 employees require their employees to be fully vaccinated. Nothing was signed or put into place but companies fell in line and started mandating their employees get the shot or get lost.
Kids are being forced to wear masks to school despite the fact that masking does not work.
Then there is the supply chain issue which could disrupt the holiday season and stretch far beyond that. I’m not blaming this entirely on Biden. Obviously, we had a global pandemic that disrupted our way of life. But Slow Joe certainly hasn’t helped things.
We can turn this around in the 2022 midterms
There are some people who will say, “There will be no 2022 or 2024! Just look at what happened in 2020, voting doesn’t matter anymore!”
False. The single worst thing you can do is sit at home and hand the Democrats a win. There were issues and irregularities as well as statistical anomalies in 2020. But that doesn’t mean voting doesn’t count; we still flipped a dozen seats in the House and won all 27 races that were listed as “tossup”.
Trump still won major bellwether states like Florida, Ohio, and Iowa by a wide margin. He also won North Carolina. I find it a little odd a candidate wins all of these states yet loses the election. But I digress.
Here in Texas, Republicans didn’t lose a single state house seat and we stayed overwhelmingly red.
Here is some great news: Republicans in Iowa flipped a State House seat that was held by Democrats for 46 years, which could be a sign of things to come.
I am confident a repeat of 2020 won’t happen in the 2022 midterms or 2024, as 18 states have passed election integrity laws this year. More work is being done to restore confidence in our elections.
Here is what has to happen. We have to get rid of the RINOS at every level: state, local, and federal. There needs to be a fighter winning every single race across the country.
There are strong conservative candidates running for governor. Vernon Jones in Georgia, Sarah Sanders in Arkansas, Kari Lake in Arizona, and Allen West here in Texas. Now would it be the end of the world if Abbott gets reelected? No, I would not be upset. I have had my issues with him but he’s also done a lot of good. Then, of course, Florida must reelect Ron DeSantis.
In Michigan, there is former police chief James Craig, who is leading Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer in early polling, 50-44%. In the poll, 53% of the respondents are Democrats and 35% Republican.
Craig was drowned out by agitators when he tried to announce his bid for governor, check out the video below.
Virginia has a governor’s race coming up which has tightened in the polls. Republican Glenn Youngkin is only trailing Democrat Terry McAuliffe 50-47% but when it comes to who’s voters are more enthused, Youngkin’s voters are by a 50-44% margin. Independents also favor Youngkin more at 53-44%. Virginia conservatives, get out there and save your state!
We need strong leadership at the governor level in every red or swing state so there is a line of defense against the federal government.
2022 needs to be a repeat of the 2010 midterms when Obama was president. At that time, there was a 63 seat gain in the House and 6 seat gain in the Senate. At this point in his presidency, Obama was 10 points more popular than Biden.
In the Senate races, there are Trump-endorsed candidates like Ted Budd in North Carolina and Herschel Walker in Georgia, who has raised a ton of cash since launching his bid for Senate.
If you are in a blue state or district where Republicans have no chance, you might need to think about supporting more moderate Democrats because we can’t have radical leftists in office. A more moderate Democrat might align with some of the same views a conservative does like strong border security and law and order.
It wouldn’t be a bad thing to elect people who might be socially liberal but want constitutional judges. There needs to be some balance.
Republicans Must Fight
I came across an interesting article in The Federalist by Christopher Bedford which I fully agree with.
Have you noticed that Democrats take advantage of power? When they are in charge they try their best to ram through their agenda or any part of it without worrying how it affects them the next election. We saw this with Obamacare in 2010; it was unpopular, but they went ahead and rammed it through anyway.
Dick Morris made a video about Greg Abbott’s abortion law and it summed up what Bedford wrote about. Morris said that Abbott basically handed Pelosi another term because it will energize the Democratic Party. This is the problem with RINOs; they’re too worried about losing elections to get things done. Republicans should cheer the bill, not clutch their pearls worrying about a future election!
As destructive as these people are to America, Democrats go all-in on their agenda, even if it means just getting one piece of legislation pushed through because they know it will be hard to reverse long after they’re no longer in power.
Republicans need to quit worrying about how they will look and fight. This is why Trump was so effective.
He did things that were wildly unpopular among many but that he knew were right. Like moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, getting 450 miles of wall built, implementing the travel ban, and even confirming judges at a record pace. During Trump’s term, more judges were confirmed at a faster pace than any president in 40 years, with a total of 220.
This is why we don’t need a politician back in the White House in 2024. If he or she does have experience, we need a fighter. The nominee will likely be Trump.
The argument that Trump is too polarizing doesn’t sit well with me. That is the exact mentality that will get us nowhere. Is he polarizing? Sure but he knows how to put up his fists and go to war. Make no mistake, we’re in the midst of a cultural total war.
Enough with trying to play it safe and not piss off the left.
Like the late great Rush Limbaugh said of someone who was worried about Texas going blue, “The way you don’t let Texas turn blue is you get out there and compete with these people.” That’s exactly what we did in the Lone Star State and protected home.
So get out there, get engaged, compete and take this country back in the 2022 midterms and in 2024 before it’s too late.
