A weekend special election to fill the vacant seat in Congress representing the Sixth congressional district in Texas deliver a huge rebuke to the Biden administration, as two Republicans qualified for a runoff, but no Democrats.
Article by Bob Unruh from WND.
Fox News concluded, “The results were seen as a blow to Democrats…”
It was significant because, the report said, the “bellwether” district “was seen to be purpling.”
Susan Wright, the widow of the late Republican Rep. Ron Wright, finished first, followed by another Republican, Jake Elizey. Democrat Jana Lynne Sanchez finished third, and conceded.
Dems should prepare for a SHELLACKING in 2022… "Democrats aiming to flip Texas House seat fall short as 2 Republicans qualify for runoff" https://t.co/j5Sga30LPI

Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce warned, “Dems should prepare for a SHELLACKING in 2022…”
The results of the eventual runoff will cut Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s very small majority in the U.S. House even smaller. The body now is divided 218 Democrats and 212 Republicans, meaning the Democrats can lose only one or two votes from their membership and still pass legislation.
Typically, during a midterm election, such as 2022, the party that holds the White House, in this case the Democrats, loses significantly in the U.S. House.
During Barack Obama’s first midterm, the nation responded with a flood of an additional 60-plus GOP members in the House.
Fox reported, “John Fund, a national affairs columnist for the National Review, took to Twitter on Sunday to consider the outcome of the race and the general popularity of a president who just released his vision for the future of the country.”
“If Biden Is So Popular, Why This?” Fund noted, with a link to a story with the election result. “Republicans grabbed the two runoff slots in the Texas 6 special election yesterday. Dems were shut out, their candidates won a total 36% in a Dallas area seat that Trump carried by only 3 points last November.”
Fox also reported its own poll recently “showed a 54% majority of voters approved of Biden’s job performance. That’s lower than Barack Obama’s 62% and George W. Bush’s 63% approval at their respective 100-day points. Donald Trump’s approval four years ago was at 45%.”
Trump’s approval, however, was clouded by a years-long aggressive – and false – campaign waged by both Democrats and legacy media that accused his campaign of colluding with Russia.
YouTube, Spotify, and other Big Tech platforms are taking Freedom First Network down
It’s no secret we speak our minds and bring on guests who do the same. That’s one of the biggest reasons we put together the Freedom First Network in the first place. There are far too many news outlets, including so-called “conservative” media companies, who are so beholden to Big Tech that they temper their perspectives at best and outright coverup the truth at worst. Many, as you all know, will blatantly lie in order to maintain the narrative that supports the radical agenda taking over much of the United States.
We have had our YouTube channel taken down. Many of our shows have been suppressed or removed by Facebook and Twitter. Spotify banned one of our shows completely from their platform. Google hates us. We’ve even been censored by some of the smaller players like Medium, Transistor, and Captivate. But we stand behind our reporting and perspectives and we refuse to bow down to Big Tech tyranny for the sake of pageviews or video plays.
This isn’t the easiest road to travel, especially for a media company that is so new. We launched Freedom First Network in 2020 to fight against the very censorship that we’re seeing so widespread today. We have found great homes for our content on freer speech platforms like Rumble and we’re putting our best efforts forward into building our presence on Locals. Nevertheless, we cannot do it alone. We need help.
One of the things cofounders Jeff Dornik and JD Rucker agreed to from the start was to never be the pawns of companies that do not embrace our worldview. Finding advertisers and affiliates is easy; we receive requests by companies wanting to be pushed on our shows every day. But it’s important to us that we’re promoting companies, services, and products that are beneficial to maintaining a Freedom First stance in America. As a result, we do not take on sponsors easily. We would rather rely on our own products like Freedom First Coffee and the support of our wonderful viewers, listeners, and readers.
Those who want to support us and help keep the fight for America’s future moving forward can do so by donating through our Locals page. There, you can donate monthly or one-time. Some have told us to use Patreon or GoFundMe, but both of those platforms have demonstrated a hatred for free speech. Locals does not. They embrace it. We encourage everyone to join us on Locals, but donations are greatly appreciated as well. We do not have day jobs. Our fight for freedom is a full-time gig.
Please feel free to reach out to us through our contact form. It goes directly to our founders, so if you’re interested in getting involved, investing, sponsoring, or even bringing a show to our network, let us know. May God Bless the United States of America!
