Newt Gingrich’s weekly Newsweek column highlights the opinion that Republicans should be optimistic going into 2022. Then Gingrich lays out why they should be optimistic through some statistics.

Gingrich notes that “Today, there are 27 Republican governors. In 23 states, Republicans control the legislature as well as the governorship. There are 4,007 Republican state legislators to 3,312 Democratic state legislators (with Republicans on the rise). The state legislator advantage means Republicans will draw the lines for reapportionment for about four times as many House seats as the Democrats.”

Once redistricting is finished and people start focusing in on the Democrats’ disgusting loyalty to the teachers unions, the Democrats’ mudslinging won’t be effective. The people are frustrated beyond belief that private schools have been open since the start of this school year. These parents are pi$$ed that Democrats march in lockstep to the teachers unions’ drums. What the teachers unions want, Democrats get for them. This interview is filled with propaganda:

First, the BS that teachers love children above all else is dishonest on steroids. Next, the notion that teachers want to return to class as soon as possible is BS. If that’s true, they should tell their union leadership to reach an agreement with the school district ASAP. They haven’t done that. Third, 70% of teachers in Chicago voted against returning to in-person learning. That’s an overwhelming majority. This is worth noting:

The House freshman class (the most diverse GOP freshman class in history) and President Trump’s achievement in getting the most minority votes of any Republican presidential candidate in 60 years bode well for continued growth for a party of prosperity and opportunity. The Left is desperate to create a pro-Trump vs. anti-Trump civil war in the GOP. It will not happen. President Trump is by far the best-known and most-liked Republican. But the Republican Party is much bigger than any one person.

Liz Cheney apparently doesn’t want a political future:

Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., called on her colleagues to cut off former President Donald Trump as his second Senate impeachment trial is set to begin this week. Cheney, the third-ranking House Republican, was one of 10 House Republicans to vote in favor of impeaching Trump last month for his role in the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol. Cheney was censured by her state party over the vote and is facing a primary challenge, though she easily won a vote of confidence last week to remain House Republican Conference chair.

“We have to take a really hard look at who we are and what we stand for, what we believe in,” Cheney told “Fox News Sunday.” “I think that when you look at both [Trump’s] actions leading up to Jan. 6, that he was impeached in a bipartisan fashion, the fact that he lost the presidency, the fact that we lost the Senate. We have to be in a position where we can say we stand for principles, for ideals.”

Apparently, Cheney didn’t notice that she’s on the wrong side of the activists. Never-Trumpers rarely notice such things. President Trump got activists so excited that 75,000,000 people voted for him. That’s in addition to 2,500,000 volunteers knocking on doors and making phone calls for him. That’s the largest activist army in the history of the GOP. These weren’t paid staffers. These were volunteers.

I don’t doubt that the teachers unions will show up for Democrats. At this point, though, I’m certain that tons of parents will show up to vote against the politicians that didn’t stand up to the teachers unions. These parents are mad as hell and they’re already rebelling against the unions. Enrollment in private and Catholic schools has already increased significantly.
