(Tea Party PAC) – Something that you might have noticed is that when GOP-controlled state legislatures go about setting congressional districts in a manner that benefits Republicans, well, the radical left in this country screams and hollers that this is gerrymandering and disenfranchisement among other things.
However, when folks in the Democratic Party participate in the very same kind of activity, no matter how badly it’s done, well, to them that’s just redistricting. It’s no biggie.
And that, dear readers, is likely how the Democrats who are in control of both the House and the Senate, along with the White House are likely planning to try and rig the 2022 midterm elections in their favor so that they do not lose control.
You see, that’s what the whole mess with the 2020 presidential election was really about. If they could manage to pull off massive voter fraud, if they could end up getting away with it on a national scale, they could pull out all of the stops and prevent fair elections from ever happening again, ensuring they stay in power indefinitely.
In other words, goodnight America.
A report from Western Journal talks all about the left’s new strategy for trying to rig the election in their favor, saying, “And, if you’re the type that gets outraged at nakedly cynical redistricting, egregious is the only word that can be used for the map New York state Democrats have drawn up. While the state currently has 19 Democrat representatives and eight Republicans in the House of Representatives, the new map will have 20 Democrat-leaning seats, four Republican-leaning seats and only two competitive districts, according to an analysis by FiveThirtyEight.”
This is a pretty solid way to ensure that Nancy Pelosi stays in as House Speaker, especially since New York is a Democratic Party stronghold.
“While the Democrats are protesting maps drawn up by Republican legislatures, even taking states like Alabama to court, this is what passes muster with them. This is the kind of hypocrisy we highlight here at The Western Journal — the kind the media doesn’t like to cover. You can help us by joining the fight as a member of The Western Journal today,” the report stated.
On Wednesday, FiveThirtyEight put out a report that the state legislature passed a map “designed to give Democrats a huge advantage in the state,” which ended up losing a seat in reapportionment because of the 2020 census.
“The proposed map has an efficiency gap of D+9, but that understates how severely it would tilt the playing field toward Democrats,” FiveThirtyEight said in its report.

Not only did this create the 20-to-4 breakdown of safe seats for the Democrats and Republicans, the two “competitive seats” as they are called, are both now advantageous to the left.
“This is an increase of three Democratic-leaning seats, a decrease of three Republican-leaning seats and a decrease of one highly competitive seat from the old map,” the outlet continued.
“If the map is enacted, it would likely set up Democrats to flip the open Republican-held 1st and 22nd districts, as well as Republican Rep. Nicole Malliotakis’s 11th District. GOP Rep. Claudia Tenney would also be thrown into a competitive race against Democratic Rep. Antonio Delgado in the new 19th District,” the report said.
Conservative news outlet The Daily Wire also reported that Tenney announced Monday that she would be running to “represent the newly drawn New York’s 23rd Congressional District in Congress.”
“We are officially announcing our campaign for #NY23 this year! I look forward to meeting and earning the support of even more New Yorkers and getting to work for our region in Congress,” she posted on Twitter.

The state of New York is supposed to have a bipartisan redistricting process. This whole thing right here proves that it’s not functioning the way it was intended.
“Such an egregiously biased map was only possible because of the weakness of New York’s new bipartisan redistricting commission,” FiveThirtyEight went on to say in its report. “Under state law, the legislature may simply draw its own map after rejecting the commission’s first two proposals.”
For FiveThirtyEight to use the word “egregious” here should really tell you how awful this is, especially because this publication is not known for being very conservative.
“It’s not just New York’s Democrat-leaning gerrymandering that could help Pelosi, either. The Washington Post — again, not a bastion of Republican sympathies — reported earlier this week that ‘in more than two dozen maps passed around the country, Democrats would net an additional five districts that Joe Biden would have won in 2020,'” the report from WJ said.
But remember, folks, it’s the GOP’s “gerrymandering” that’s the real issue.
“New York state Republicans were looking at challenging the map in court. In a statement, state GOP Chairman Nick Langworthy said it was a “brazen and outrageous attempt at rigging the election to keep Nancy Pelosi as speaker,” a report from the New York Post said.
“Democrats are circumventing the will of the people,” Langworthy remarked. “For all of their phony protestations about transparency and fairness in elections, what they’re doing is textbook filthy, partisan gerrymandering that is clearly in violation of the New York State Constitution.”
“We are reviewing all of our legal options to protect the voices of millions of New Yorkers,” he added.
If that doesn’t work, it could end up bringing Pelosi just a tad bit closer to keeping speakership after the midterms despite a wave of discontent with both Joe Biden and his administration, along with congressional Democrats.
And we most definitely don’t want that.
