In a Fox News interview on Tucker Carlson Tonight, Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich reported Democrats have given up on keeping the House and are attempting to pass legislation as quickly as possible until the 2022 election.
Gingrich called the plan a sprint to radicalism, telling Carlson, “What they’re doing is ramming through everything they can get done before they lose in 2022. This is kind of a sprint to radicalism even though it’s going to cost, if you look at these votes … [they’ll] have 30, 40, 50 members who are not going to be able to defend them.”
The former house speaker added a similar pattern followed the first terms of the two previous Democrat presidents. Both Barack Obama and Bill Clinton saw their party take big losses in the House in the first midterm following their election.
Gingrich noted, “They [Democrats] lost 54 seats [in 1994] and we became the majority for the first time in 40 years,” he said. “When Obama was elected, they lost 63 seats [in 2010].”
He also noted the left’s fear can be seen in the COVID-19 stimulus bill. Of the $1.9 trillion budget, less than 10 percent is directly related to COVID-19 relief. The rest funds unrelated political projects, ranging from economic justice to attempts to support mass transit in Nancy Pelosi’s home district of San Francisco.
The other area Gingrich reported as a growing concern is Biden’s immigration policies. He noted, “If there’s a problem in Texas, it’s not with Governor Abbott, it’s with Biden’s illegals. We just have to call them [that], these are Biden’s illegals coming into the country [with] no public health check.”
As both pandemic relief and immigration face ongoing legislative battles, midterm election campaigns are beginning to take shape. With only a five-seat deficit, Republican confidence continues to grow that the House will flip in 2022.
In addition to flipping Democrat districts, former President Donald Trump has declared war on the Republicans in the House who still subscribe to the old Republican Party, the globalists and the weak defenders of America First. Trump will target 10 RINO’s including Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney, with primary contenders preparing for a midterm battle.
South Carolina Republican Congressman Tom Rice served a surprising impeachment vote against Trump, tweeting, “I have backed this President through thick and thin for four years. I campaigned for him and voted for him twice. But, this utter failure is inexcusable.” He’ll also likely face serious opposition in the upcoming primary.
Despite party in-fighting among those who have voted to impeach or oppose Trump, prospects of a 2022 Republican resurgence in the House look strong. Perhaps the most important concern among many is voter integrity, as many people lost trust in the system after the 2020 presidential election.
Expect Trump and other Republicans to hammer on this issue in the days ahead, as stop the steal becomes protect the vote. Despite the negativity and discouragement many conservatives experienced following the 2020 election and January 6 Capitol riot, a comeback may be underway. It’s up to patriotic Americans to get involved now, looking ahead as a way to bring future change to Washington and our nation.
