Over the weekend, as Republican Glenn Youngkin was sworn in as Virginia's new governor and began to take immediate actions, reports emerged that other new Republican elected officials were also cleaning house. Newly elected Attorney General Jason Miyares relieved around 30 staffers in the AG's office of their duties, over the howling protests of Democrats in Virginia. Miyares has also taken immediate steps to reverse democratic policies on prosecutions for certain crimes, investigate high profile public corruption, and reverse radical climate policy. Reactions were mixed, based on the political perspective of the commenters.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said during a recent interview that if Republicans take back the House of Representatives in November, that certain Democrats will be stripped of their committee assignments. He pointed specifically to Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell, who serve on the House Intelligence Committee and Ilhan Omar, who serves on Foreign Affairs.

Last week, we noted that Democrat lawyer Marc Elias has threatened to use January 6th to disqualify Republicans from running in 2022. As if by magic, a group is doing that to North Carolina Republican Rep. Madison Cawthorn. The challenge was filed by 11 people, but has the backing of a national organization dedicated to campaign finance reform.

The 2022 midterms are still almost a year away, but there are already some bad signs for Democrats. The state of Nevada seems to be trending red and Florida, which was already trending Republican is just getting redder. It's too early to know if this is part of a larger national trend, but it should still set off alarm bells for Democrats.

The city council in New York recently voted to allow 800,000 non-citizens to vote in local elections, a move many people believe is a test run for the bigger goal of letting all illegal immigrants vote. Now Senate Republicans are pushing back by crafting legislation that would bar cities and states from receiving federal funds if they do this.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has been a leading voice in the fight against Critical Race Theory in education. He is now introducing his latest effort in this battle. It's called the “Stop W.O.K.E. Act.” Taking action on this issue is not only the right thing to do, it's smart politics. This was one of the key issues for Glenn Youngkin's recent victory in Virginia.
