And, Steel is one of the first Korean American women elected to Congress, joining Washington State’s Marilyn Strickland, who won the 10th Congressional District last week.

The year of Republican women keeps getting better. 

Republican Michelle Steel defeated first-term Democrat incumbent Rep. Harley Rouda for California’s 48th District seat on Tuesday, marking a historic win in the state of California. 

Why historic? 

It’s only the second time in over two decades that a Republican has unseated a Democrat in the Golden State.

And, Steel is one of the first Korean American women elected to Congress, joining Washington State’s Marilyn Strickland, who won the open 10th Congressional District last week. 

“This victory has been hard-fought and hard-won, and I could not be more humbled to have your support nor more honored to serve our community in Congress. Now, let’s get to work,” Steel tweeted after her opponent conceded on Tuesday. 

“We did not win this election,” her opponent, Rouda, said in a statement. “And while it isn’t the outcome we had hoped for, it’s never been more important for our leaders to hear the voice of the people, and to accept their judgement. I do.” 

“But I also believe there’s something bigger at stake here than this one election,” he continued. 

“There is a toxicity to American politics threatening the very democracy that sets us apart from the rest of the world. That has to change,” he added. 

Steel swept back the seat from Rouda, who defeated longtime Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher in 2018, according to the Associated Press. Prior to Rouda’s term, the Orange County district had been Republican for more than 20 years. 

Steel won roughly 51% of the district votes, while President Donald Trump only won 33% of the votes in California. 

Steel’s ads focused largely on claims that Rouda would raise taxes. 

Which he wasn’t thrilled about. 

“My opponent made allegations about me that were complete fabrications – some totally made up, others wild distortions, and still others torn from the darkest corners of the Internet, Rouda reportedly said, via the Daily Caller. 

As the nation celebrates 100 years of women voting in the U.S, this year was undeniably historic for Republican women.

Republicans broke records in the House, electing the largest number of new Republican women to Congress in the history of our great nation.

    It is not that he would raise taxes as much as he would support those that raise taxes. That is for certain. The party votes in unison.

    Congrats. Stay strong against the pressure that will come to you from the other side. The Trump movement is strong and even more capable of making and keeping our nation free and strong with you being a part of it.

    Something just isn’t right about this whole thing. I’m sorry, but I do not believe any of the election coverage we have been forced to view, Mr. Terrell. Mr. Biden is supposedly our new president, yet no critical gubernatorial race was won by a Democrat (blue puddle, I guess), the House of Representatives is evidently not going to enjoy a larger Democratic/Progressive margin (blue desert, I guess), no state legislatures changed hands to the Democrats that I am aware of (blue period), and yet – somehow, by means we cannot fathom – we are to believe the President was so unpopular that he received more votes than in 2016, and that Mr. Obama actually rode Mr. Biden’s coattails to victory in 2008 and 2012. Before we get to the matter of the pending voting fraud issues in and of themselves, perhaps a look at the bigger picture would help us all understand that something is amiss here and all of us need to pay attention to this matter.

Obtained Emails on Election Night Heighten Georgia’s Mysterious Ballot-Counting

Published

Georgia Voting

Just the News has obtained internal emails from election workers in Georgia’s Fulton County has increased confusion and mystery regarding the November presidential elections. As a reminder, Just the News writes, “Uncertainty arose regarding the ballot processing operation at Fulton County’s State Farm Arena on and after Election Night, when ballot-scanning apparently continued even after most election workers had reportedly been sent home.”

Affidavits from Election Night poll workers state they were directed by officials to stop working around 10:30 pm on November 3rd, and return at 8:30 am the next day. Multiple local and national media outlets reported absentee ballot counting stopped around 10:30 pm and cited county spokeswoman Regina Waller.

In truth, counting at the State Farm Arena continued past 10:30 pm. Waller herself told JTN in December that contrary to media reports, many citing her, that she had “stated to all media…that although several workers were released to go home, a small team remained behind to assist with scanning ballots.”

Through an open records request, JTN obtained a few suspect emails, in which Waller does in fact state counting ended at around 10:30 pm. The email, timestamped at 10:22 pm on Nov. 3, addressed to several county officials as well as State Farm Arena spokesman Garin Narain stated, “the workers in the Absentee Ballot Processing area will get started again at 8 am tomorrow.”

When reached for comment via email, Waller only stated the email “was in response to a question received asking when all workers would return” but did not respond to a request to see the original email to which she was responding. So then why did she keep a “small” team behind?

Another email from Fulton County Interagency Affairs Manager Fran Phillips-Calhoun timestamped at 11:15 pm that same night, almost an hour after Waller said counting stopped, Phillips-Calhoun’s email may suggest otherwise. “FYI-[the Secretary of State’s office] just sort of threw the team under the bus stating that ‘we had a great day, but we decided to throw in the towel for the night even though the public is waiting…’ on the results.”

Phillips-Calhoun’s email was sent to Waller and several other county staffers. Phillips-Calhoun did not respond to requests for comment, nor did the message specify which statement from the Secretary of State’s office she was referring to.

Pro-Trump super PAC rebrands to ‘stop Joe’s corruption, socialist agenda, liberalism’

It’s new name? Committee to Defeat the President.

A super PAC that heavily supported President Trump during the 2020 presidential campaign is changing its direction to focus on the new administration. 

The Committee to Defend the President officially rebranded itself on Wednesday as Joe Biden takes office. Its mission is now aimed at taking down the incoming democrat. 

It’s new name? Committee to Defeat the President. 

During the 2020 campaign cycle, the PAC reportedly raised more than $16 million to support Trump and his “America First policy agenda, BizPacReview reports. The group will now focus on “undermining” Biden’s agenda. 

“NEW NAME. SAME MISSION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT & STOP JOE’s Corruption…Socialist Agenda…Liberalism,” the website says. 

The committee told Fox News it plans to match its 2020 fundraising during the 2022 election cycle, and pledges a seven-figure investment “to expose the Biden-Harris administration and other Democrats for their left-wing politics.” 

The group will push new ads, opposition research, social media engagement, and “other innovative tactics.” 

The PAC’s “new mission is to save Americans from the radical, dangerous policies of the Biden-Harris administration,” Ted Harvey, the group’s chairman, said. 

“Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will work around the clock to reverse the unprecedented progress of the Trump presidency,” Harvey added. 

“From day one, we simply cannot let that happen. It is our patriotic duty to work around the clock and stop them – before the damage done to America becomes irreversible,” he said. 

But, this isn’t the first time the PAC has switched gears. 

Founded in 2013, it was originally called the Stop Hillary Pac, according to BizPacReview.
