There’s a prevailing narrative coming from Republicans on Capitol Hill. They’re seeing the polls, reading the articles, and they’re thinking they’re going to cruise to victory in the 2022 midterm elections. If recent history has taught us anything, it’s that such bravado is foolish this early in the contest.
In the first episode of The JD Rucker Political Report on America Out Loud radio, I dove into the topic of the 2022 election. First, I offered an introduction to the show and to my perspectives. This was a necessary prelude to the topic at hand; those who read NOQ Report or The Liberty Daily know who I am just as those who have heard my previous shows on Freedom First Network know me, but this is a new audience so introductions were in order.
After briefly detailing who I am, I dove into discussing my three fears about the 2022 election. But as I am wont to do, I didn’t express them as concerns. Instead, I tackled them the way I tackle any problem. I addressed them and offered solutions.
First and foremost, the GOP needs to stop talking about losing issues like impeachment. I want Joe Biden impeached as much as anybody and I’m very hopeful that if Republicans win majorities in the House and Senate that they’ll go after him with everything they have. But it’s not a winning campaign issue. In fact, it could be the very thing that turns off Independents as well as the growing number of Democrat voters who are not pleased with the direction their party is taking the country.
Most Americans were sick of impeachments before the first Trump impeachment concluded. By the second one, polls showed the American people were furious that they were doing it all again, but at that point the election was over so Democrats felt they had nothing to lose. Promising to impeach Joe Biden as soon as Republicans have a majority is an easy way to prevent that majority from manifesting.
The second piece of advice is to learn from what voters do in the age of the internet. That means they need to offer solutions. Prior to the internet, anger was a driving force in pretty much every power-flipping election. Reagan focused on reminding people how abysmal life under Jimmy Carter was. He didn’t really have to get into too many solutions.
Things are different now. Republicans had demonstrated they know this to be true in 2010 and 2014 when they flipped the House and Senate respectively. Their secret was focusing on Obamacare and saying that given the power, they will repeal it. Today’s GOP seems to be latching onto the first step of declaring the problems but thus far they’ve said nothing about what they’re going to do to fix them.
Voters don’t just want to hear that gas prices are high. They want to know the GOP has a plan to make gas prices lower. They don’t just want to hear rants about Covid tests. They want to know a Republican majority will address Covid-19 properly. Ranting is only part of the strategy, the part that gets people’s attention. But to flip voters to their side, they then have to offer tangible solutions to the problems Americans face.
The final piece of advice for the GOP is to stop ignoring voter fraud, particularly from the 2020 election. It’s a shame that many if not most Republican lawmakers believe the 2020 election was fair. It was stolen and more Americans are coming to this realization everyday. But out of fear of being called out as a “voter fraud conspiracy theorist,” most Republican lawmakers are silent or even outright claim the 2020 election was not stolen.
Most are talking about election reform that includes strengthening safeguards, and that’s great. But they also need to identify those who engaged in voter fraud in 2020. Then, they need to charge, prosecute, and jail these people. If they do not, they’re telling future voter fraud operatives that there are no repercussions for attempting to steal the election. As a result, the 2022 midterms may not end up the way the GOP believes it will.
It’s an honor to be on American Out Loud radio. The first episode was fun. The future episodes, which broadcast at 7pm Eastern Monday-Friday, will be even better.
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
