In Massive Blow To Democrats, Republicans Won Almost Every House Race That’s Key To Redistricting

While everyone is talking about the presidential election, one aspect of the 2020 race is being overlooked even though it’s huge.

Not only did Republicans make considerable gains in the House, that no one expected, they won most of the races that will entail redistricting.

This is like a double loss for Democrats.

From FiveThirtyEight:

Republicans Won Almost Every Election Where Redistricting Was At Stake

Every 10 years, after the census, congressional and state legislature districts are redrawn to account for population changes. This gives whoever is drawing the maps the power to maximize the number of districts that favor their party — a tactic known as gerrymandering. And as we wrote last month, the 2020 election represented the last chance for voters to weigh in on who would draw those maps.

Both parties went into the election with a chance to draw more congressional districts than the other, but the end result was just about the best-case scenario for Republicans. As the map below shows, Republicans are set to control the redistricting of 188 congressional seats — or 43 percent of the entire House of Representatives. By contrast, Democrats will control the redistricting of, at most, 73 seats, or 17 percent.

How did Republicans pull that off? By winning almost every 2020 election in which control of redistricting was at stake…

This is so important.

Combine this with the fact that Democrats are making Nancy Pelosi House Speaker again, and you have a perfect storm for 2022.

Republicans are already looking like the favorite to take back the House.

On This 157th Anniversary of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address — Pray for Our Country to Overcome the Evil That Aims to Destroy Us

157 years ago today President Abraham Lincoln delivered his famous Gettysburg Address at the dedication of the Soldier’s National Cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

This was after one of the bloodiest battles in the Civil War. They Union Army lost 3,100 troops and 3,900 Confederate soldiers died in the fighting.

The former dean of Harvard spoke Edward Everett spoke for two hours at the dedication. Then Abraham Lincoln spoke for two minutes.

This was a time of great turmoil.
Today our country is also in great distress.

Democrats seek power at all costs as they wage war against the American people. They threaten physical harm against their political opponents and silence their voices with glee. They push for endless war and policies that destroy the US middle class.

And worst of all they attempt to steal power from the American people through fraudulent votes and election hardware.

Please pray for our country tonight.

The Gettysburg Address

“Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth, on this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived, and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives, that that nation might live.

It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate—we cannot hallow—this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract.

The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.

It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

Top Canadian Pathologist Tells Alberta Government COVID Is “The Greatest Hoax Ever Perpetrated On An Unsuspecting Public”

Top Canadian pathologist Dr. Roger Hodkinson told Alberta government officials that the current coronavirus crisis is “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public.”

Dr. Hodkinson responded on a zoom call in Canada the following:

Noting that he was also an expert in virology, Hodkinson pointed out that his role as CEO of a biotech company that manufactures COVID tests means, “I might know a little bit about all this.”

“There is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians, it’s outrageous, this is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public,” said Hodkinson.

The doctor said that nothing could be done to stop the spread of the virus besides protecting older more vulnerable people and that the whole situation represented “politics playing medicine, and that’s a very dangerous game.”

Dr. Hodkinson’s comments were captured on during the meeting;

It’s so refreshing to see a smart doctor stand up to the insanity pushed on the world’s population from a medical perspective.  We need more doctors standing up.
