(FreedomWire.org) – There’s been predictions for a while now that Republicans could secure massive gains in the 2022 midterm elections, and one senator, Rick Scott (R-FL) is certainly planning ahead for that kind of success.

Scott spoke on Fox News Digital on Tuesday to release his 11-point plan with 128 specific policy goals that he believes can serve as the agenda for the Republican-controlled Senate he anticipates, referring to it as “My Plan to Rescue America,” according to Fox Business.

Scott constructed the plan based on his previous experience as a corporate executive in the health care industry, before going on to become a two-term Florida governor, until finally holding his current office as one of Florida’s senators.

The policy points in his proposal spread across a wide array of subjects and include goals that include opposing racial politics by asking the government to “never again ask American citizens to disclose their race, ethnicity, or skin color, on any government forms,” treating socialism as a foreign enemy, and completing former President Donald Trump’s border wall (and even naming it after Trump.) Another proposal asks children in schools to “say the pledge of allegiance, salute the Flag, learn that America is a great country, and choose the school that best fits them.”

“We won’t stop the woke socialist crowd and turn this country around without a plan,” stated Scott in his opening statement.

Scott railed against what he referred to as the “militant left:”

“[Leftists] are redefining America and silencing their opponents. This could be the beginning of the end of America, but only if we allow it. My plan will be ridiculed by the woke left, mocked by Washington insiders, and strike fear in the heart of some Republicans. Americans deserve to know what we will do when given the chance to govern,” he said.

The senator went on to say that these guidelines will “inspire patriotism and stop teaching the revisionist history of the radical left,” and will help “protect, defend, and promote the American family at all costs,” adding that “men are men, women are women, and unborn babies are babies.”

The following screengrab is from Scott’s plan:

However, Scott was careful to clarify that these were his personal proposals and not the collective product of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which oversees efforts to aid in the re-election of Republican senators and which Scott currently chairs:

“This is my idea on things we ought to be talking about to turn the country around. The country’s in deep trouble. So I’m going to put my ideas out there.”

Scott admitted that he hadn’t discussed this with Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), but says he plans to soon, and agrees with McConnell’s assessment of the election:

“I agree with Mitch McConnell that the election’s mostly going to be about the Biden agenda. But I believe in having plans, and I’m putting this out.”

Scott went on to be relatively coy regarding whether or not he’ll join the GOP leadership in the Senate (apart from the re-election committee he currently chairs,) saying only that “I’ll be one senator selling my ideas.” Scott was also silent on the idea of joining the crowd of 2024 presidential hopefuls.

(FreedomWire.org) – Matt Schlapp confirmed on social media, on Monday, that a former Democrat Presidential candidate, who is also a former Democrat US House of Representative from Hawaii is speaking at the largest gathering of Republican Conservatives called CPAC- later in February.

Gabbard is a  Lt. Col. in the Army Reserve and has been embroiled in battle, perhaps for the soul of the Democrat Party, with former Presidential candidate Hillary R. Clinton- and Gabbard is also outspoken in her rejection of Joe Biden’s foreign policies.

Clinton is facing scrutiny for her active role in what could possibly be the biggest scandal in American History, so it is an interesting time to hear from Gabbard.

The news went viral on Twitter on Monday, due to the controversy Gabbard’s appearance is expected to cause and the all-Republican gathering.

Rolling Stone Magazine had a temper tantrum over Gabbard’s scheduled appearance, reporting:

Tulsi Gabbard, the former Hawaii congresswoman who sought the 2020 Democratic nomination for president, is completing her metamorphosis from iconoclast progressive to hardcore conservative by appearing as a featured guest at the Trumpy love-in known as the Conservative Political Action Conference.

CPAC 2022 begins Wednesday in Orlando, where Gabbard will join a roster of GOP loyalists — including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Republican senators Ted Cruz, Rick Scott and Marco Rubio, and Representatives Matt Gaetz, Jim Jordan, Lauren Boebert, Madison Cawthorn and Marjorie Taylor Greene — in building buzz for the star of the circus, former President Donald Trump.

According to the conference agenda, Gabbard will appear at the Friday night “Ronald Reagan Dinner,” where the keynote speaker is the former Fox News star conspiracy theorist Glenn Beck.

Most recently, on her Twitter timeline, Gabbard, who does not support needless wars, was decrying Biden’s approach to a Russia-US/Ukraine conflict saying that a shooting war will escalate quickly and place lives in danger.

Gabbard warned politicians about her concerns for Nuclear war, something the Democrats used to care a great deal about.

The Daily Beast was pouting over Gabbard’s anticipated anti-war speech on a highly elevated platform, as she will speak CPAC’s Regan Dinner.

“While it may seem unusual for a Democratic politician to headline such an event, Gabbard has long cultivated a conservative following by repeatedly railing against the Biden administration and elements of her own party’s agenda, particularly on foreign policy and culture-war matters.”

Newsweek pointed out that Gabbard is not the first Democrat to speak at CPAC:

“While it’s uncommon for a Democrat to speak at CPAC, Gabbard’s appearance isn’t a complete shock given her criticism of President Joe Biden, and at least three other Democrats have spoken at the conference.

Former Bill Clinton adviser Paul Begala spoke at CPAC in 2013. During a debate with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, Begala expressed the hope that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would run for president and said she would be a “great” choice.

MIC.com had a mind on revenge against Gabbard- for dating to speak about not causing needless wars to promote political idols:

Former Democratic congresswoman and dark horse candidate for her party’s 2020 presidential nomination Tulsi Gabbard is poised to make her re-entry into politics next week with a much hyped appearance at the upcoming Conservative Political Action Conference — the annual who’s-who event for the wholly unhinged lunatic fringe of the Republican party to mingle with their more respectable (that is: less flamboyantly fascistic) right wing brethren.

(FreedomWire.org) – If Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Chuck Schumer, and Nancy Pelosi – the leaders of the national Democratic Party – are inclined to imbibe after receiving bad news, they may have one heck of a hangover tomorrow morning.

As Rasmussen Reports has now indicated in a just-published piece about the latest polling figures for the generic congressional ballot, the Democrats are in deep water with the American electorate, and it may be impossible to return to high ground in time for the November midterm elections.

According to Rasmussen:

“The 2022 midterm elections are now 263 days away, and Republicans have a 13-point lead in their bid to recapture control of Congress.

“…if the elections for Congress were held today, 50% of Likely U.S. Voters would vote for the Republican candidate, while 37% would vote for the Democrat. Just four percent (4%) would vote for some other candidate, but another nine percent (9%) are not sure.

“Republicans have added four points to their congressional advantage since January.”

Two more significant takeaways from the Rasmussen poll:

“The 13-point edge for Republicans in the latest poll is larger than Democrats enjoyed at any time during the 2018 midterm campaign

“While 89% of Republican voters say they would vote for their own party’s congressional candidate, only 77% of Democrats would vote for the Democratic candidate.” 

Any way you cut it, the Democrats are not resonating with the American people now that they are in charge of the House, the Senate, and the White House. Not only are the numbers bad for the Democrats, but they are also getting worse by the month.

(FreedomWire.org) – GOP leader Kevin McCarthy promised to launch an investigation into the bombshell findings from Special Counsel John Durham if the GOP takes back the House after the 2022 midterms.

Durham’s latest filing puts probe close to Hillary Clinton as she promoted a false story tied to the DNS monitoring. Durham also put the scandal at the feet of President Joe Biden’s National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan. Sullivan also promoted the false story about Alfa Bank communicating with the Trump organization that came from the DNS monitoring if Republicans take back the House in November. 

Durham also made it known that Joe Biden and Barack Obama were informed of intel around Hillary’s plot. Kevin said: “Special Counsel John Durham’s continued investigation into the Russia hoax is essential to getting to the truth and protecting our democracy, and because he has already uncovered several troubling findings.

“It’s clear that Congress must exercise its oversight responsibilities as well.

“Democrats and legacy media may want to sweep this alarming report under the rug.

“But if House Republicans earn the majority, we will use our oversight tools to determine whether federal funds were used.

“Whether federal office-holders abused their power.

“And investigate other disturbing elements of this spying scheme to ensure nothing like it ever happens again.

Republican Study Committee Chair Rep. Jim Banks of Indiana said:

“Where there’s smoke, there’s fire and if the involvement of the Biden campaign, his national security advisor Jake Sullivan, and others in the secret surveillance of President Trump is as it appears, this is a five-alarm blaze..

“Nixon spied on a political committee; Democrats spied on the duly-elected President.

“They aren’t in the same ballpark and Congress needs to act accordingly.”

Marsha Blackburn said:

“And we are continuing to look at what further information there may be around this.

“I do think that when you look at and the connect the dots on this, you know, Sussman and what he had then, of course, Marc Elias, Jake Sullivan. So we’ll wait until we get more information.”

Rep. Michael Turner ​(R-Ohio), the top Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, said:

“We have to get to the truth. I mean, this is a threat to our democracy itself. It doesn’t matter really which political campaign this is or which political party this is. 

“This is so wrong and allegations of such level of illegal activity that goes directly to our faith in our own government that the truth must be found.

“Durham is doing a great job. I appreciate that he’s got this in the court system and is trying to bring this to light.

“But we have to, to get the bottom of this. 

“We will certainly use every tool that we have on the Intelligence Committee, and I think certainly Jim Jordan on the Judiciary Committee and others, we will make certain that we use every aspect of congressional power to get to the bottom of this.”

(FreedomWire.org) – The Democrats face losing control of the House in November’s midterm elections, but they’re not going down without a fight – even if it means rigging the system in their favor. Now, New York’s Dem-controlled state legislature has put forward a new redistricting map that cuts the number of seats overall, but increases the number for Dems.

On January 30, Democrat state representatives released a new proposal for New York’s congressional districts. The state needs to reduce its number of districts from 27 to 26, to reflect population changes that have seen millions of people abandoning Democrat-controlled coastal cities and moving to red states. However, Dems have jumped on the chance to do some industrial-scale gerrymandering. Right now, New York has 19 Democrat representatives and 8 Republican ones. Under the proposed changes, if voting patterns remained the same, that would shift to 22 Democrats and just 4 Republicans.

This isn’t just a concern in New York. Nationally, Democrat legislatures have already pushed through redistricting maps that would have given their party an extra five seats in the House in 2020. If New York’s map is approved, that will rise to eight. Right now, the Democrats have a 10-seat advantage in the House, and the Republicans are hoping to take control in November. It’s unlikely the Dems will get as many extra seats as they expect because the polls are predicting a big shift to the GOP, but they’re certainly trying.
