Early results have Republicans gaining power in U.S. House

Whatever Republican wave developed in the elections for the U.S. House on Tuesday, it started with a non-voting U.S. congressional delegate from Guam.

Because of the time zones, that election was final early Tuesday, and had Republican James Moylan, a senator in the island’s legislature, defeating Democrat Judith Won Pat.

Fox News reported it was the first time in nearly 30 years for a GOP member to be elected there.

He’s only the second Republican elected to that seat, a non-voting position in Congress, since 1972.

The Republicans also struck first in race for the 435 voting House seats, with declared victors in Kentucky and South Carolina to start the race with a 3-0 lead. The Republicans trailed during the last Congress by only a handful of votes, meaning picking up 3 to 5 seats gives them the majority, which has been predicted for weeks now.

By mid-evening, the GOP had won 86 House seats, to the Democrats’ 47.

Exit polls found inflation under Joe Biden’s economic politics was voters’ top concern. In fact, inflation is in the 8%-9% range now, having come down slightly from summer, but still costing American families thousands of dollars a year more for the same lifestyles.

Projections before the votes were counted estimated the GOP essentially had secured 228 House seats, enough for a majority which starts at 218, and well above the 212 from the previous Congress.

That included none of the 33 seats considered tossups.

Democrats were projected, without the tossups, to have 174.

A couple of those on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s special partisan committee looking into the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the Capitol are on their way out. Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., lost her primary after repeatedly attacking President Trump, and re. Elaine Luria, D-Va., was trailing in her race.

One of the more controversial figures in the House, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., was projected to win re-election over challenger Marcus Flowers, who raised some $15 million to challenger her.

Her district is dominated by the GOP. She is among the Republicans who openly have talked about impeaching Joe Biden. Democrats, infuriated with her, stripped her of committee assignments, which are expected to have restored in a GOP majority House.

A close ally of Greene, Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., also won re-election, defeating Rebekah Jones. Both are close allies of President Trump.

Jones made headlines in 2020 when she alleged Florida was manipulating its COVID-19 data, a claim found to be false by a report by state Inspector General Michael Bennett.

At the opposite end of the spectrum, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, D-N.Y., also won re-election in her heavily Democrat district, after having established a reputation for making wild claims about climate change bringing an end to civilization as it is known in just years.

Pelosi, asked by a reporter about the Democrats losing the House majority, which would cost her the speaker’s seat, privileges, and extra pay, she said, “I’m not predicating any action on the Democrats not winning tonight, so that’s a conversation for another day.”

EDITOR’S NOTE: Leftwing billionaire George Soros bankrolls everything evil – most recently the 75 pro-criminal “Soros district attorneys” who have transformed America’s most dynamic cities into degraded, crime-infested hellscapes of skyrocketing violent crime. Soros also funds drug legalization, euthanasia, open borders, globalism, Black Lives Matter, “defunding the police,” devaluing America’s currency and destroying her sovereignty. But why?

Whistleblower magazine reveals and explores the stunning truth: Soros, an atheist, literally says he’s “some kind of god,” obsessed with re-creating the world in his image. Here are a few actual quotes from Soros: “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood…” “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.” “You know, in my personal capacity I’m not actually a selfless philanthropic person. I’ve very much self-centered.” “I am kind of a nut who wants to have an impact.” “Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad. … I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it.”

Except he hasn’t “escaped it.” Not only is Soros totally mad, but he’s imposing his insanity on America. See Soros and the leftwing world he has created and funded as never before in “THE BILLIONAIRE WHO THINKS HE’S ‘GOD’: Why George Soros is obsessed with destroying America.”
