Jim Hanson on His Political Expectations for 2022
"On. Let's look at the political system in the last 11 months and what we can predict for the future. We have I consider him there's some real greats in America, a handful, like Victor Davis Hansen, one of the greatest political minds for me is Newt Gingrich. He said the insanity of the Democrat party right now is a function of the fact that they know they know they're going to get totally shellacked next year. And they've got to they've got to stuff it all in the kit bag right now because they won't have control. It is fascinating that the arch strategist, Nancy Pelosi, is refusing to confirm that she's going to run. She's bought a $25 million house in Ron DeSantis state of Florida. Sorry Ron. So are they not going to try and treat? Are they not going to be able to cheat enough? Do you agree with that we take over if we do? What happens with the rhinos give us your expectation given the last ten months what's going to happen next year? It's been heartening for me to see how badly the left is screwed up and the fact that the backlash started right here. In Virginia. You know, our first win was turning Virginia back red and that was massive. Let's unpack that. My argument having had Glen on the show having met him is he didn't win it. He pivoted, he saw the mama bears, he embraced them. It was the mama bears that won it. I mean, I didn't think he was going to win. Honestly, you know, Terry, the bagman for the clintons, I thought he's going to do whatever it takes to win it. Who won in Virginia and why, Jim? We won. And everyone on the right one and I don't care Glenn can mean very little to me personally. Terry McAuliffe losing means massive things to all of us because it showed a we can win elections. There was so much disheartening. They tried. You know, they were trying to say, where's my extra panel trucks? Full of ballots for fairfax. And they never showed up. All right, so we can actually win an election. It gave us a little momentum, throw in the written house verdict and then actually they are very verdict showing that our justice system works. The jury system works and we have that. It takes a little wind out of the sales to the left, and now we're looking forward to 2022 and parents everywhere are rising up. So like you said, the mama bears and the rest who have been going to school board meetings and telling them we don't want our kids turned into socialists are their nationwide
Virginia Is Seriously Considering Taxing Residents for Rain
"Listen to this, the fairfax Virginia city manager, guy named Robert stalzer has proposed taxing local residents and businesses for the amount of rainwater that falls on their roofs, driveways and parking lots. This is very similar to the measure they've already adopted in La La Land of Maryland. Now, when they did that a few years ago, that contributed to flipping party control of the governorship and was repealed by the state legislature two years after it imposed the tax. They are seriously talking about taxing residents for rain. It's called impervious services. Surfaces. The revenue, they think it'll be a lot of money. It's called The Rain tax by many. The proposal would establish a new enterprise fund, supported by customer fees that are based on the amount of impervious surface on a property. And the city manager says the current revenues are not sufficient to meet the regulatory infrastructure maintenance and drainage improvement demands of the storm water program. So instead of spending less, the city manager wants to increase taxes based on a fee for service approach under which residents would pay in proportion to the surface area of their roof, driveway, parking lot gravel, concrete surfaces or any man-made feature that creates water runoff resulting from

Speaker Newt Gingrich Pinpoints the Watershed Moment in Glenn Youngkin's Campaign
"Speaking English as a resident of Virginia, I am, of course, buoyed. I am very excited by the recent victory of Glenn young of his lieutenant governor of his attorney general. What is, can we read a broader significance into this for next year and for 2024 or is it rather sui generous as a resident of the Commonwealth, I look at what happened here. And I see a businessman not unlike president Trump with no political background. He brought a business like attitude to the campaign, talked about getting Virginia back to work. But in the last few weeks, because of those mothers you mentioned at the school boards, he very adroitly pivoted to this culture war issue of fighting critical race theory and vowed to ban it on his first day in office. Is that a model or should Virginia be dealt with this as something unique? No, I think I watched lens campaign closely and talked frequently with his campaign manager. And I believe that the turning point of the campaign actually was when he went to a loudon county rally of a thousand people who were upset about the schools, and then in the debate when former governor Terry mcauliffe said that there was no place for parents in schools, and that was electrifying and as you pointed out Glen is a businessman and built a good campaign team and they actually had something up on the air. By the next morning. And just throw home for everybody in Virginia, the term of thought that there was no place for parents and schools. And that, I think became the signal moment that began to change everything. No, young can also did a very adroit job of having Trump's help in rural and southern Virginia where he's extraordinarily popular without having Trump campaign in Arlington and fairfax county where he's unpopular. And so junkin was able to pick up all the support in the suburban counties from people who were upset about the schools while picking up all the support in rural and small town Virginia from everybody who was pro

According to RealClearPolitics dot com, Joe Biden's favorable rating is 44 unfavorable rating is 50 6 points in the deficit 6 points. 50% of the country as an unfavorable view of Joe Biden and the latest polls out of Virginia everybody, which can be a bellwether state in ways that are very significant. Virginia governor, according to the Trafalgar group, young Ken up two points, Fox 5 D.C. insider, which I trust local polls a lot with this up two points. Term mcauliffe is going on a press campaign, play cut it. They're talking about this critical race theory. And as I said before, and I'll say it again, it's never been taught in Virginia. And I really hate it because it's a racist dog whistle obtained from the loudoun county school board and invoice from that firm, the equity showing a charge for coaching and meetings focused on CRT. And excerpt of an email from former school superintendent states that while loudon county has not officially adopted CRT, some of its teachings align with the CRT ideology. That's pretty straightforward. Now, the polls are all over the place. So I don't want to say that it's guaranteed that junk and is going to win. The recent polls show him up, but there is a pall over the weekend by Roanoke college at mcauliffe one. There is another one from Washington Post that in the cauliflower up one, and you better believe that fairfax county and in loudon county, they're gonna pull out every type of shenanigans and tomfoolery and shadiness that they can concoct everybody. That is a real thing and it's going they are going to pull it all out. But I just want to make sure that everyone understands the significance of what is happening in Virginia right now is that you have a candidate that was not polling well. You've a candidate that in the Virginia race was down significantly. If you look to the RealClearPolitics average polls in Virginia. Mcauliffe was down in the average. I mean, I'm sorry, junkin was down 6 points. 6 points at the beginning of September. He was down in the average by 6 points. Now the average has him up two

Youngkin Beats McAuliffe in Virginia Poll as Education Fight Defines Campaign
"Here, the Virginia governor's race is quickly tightening. The Virginia governor's race is statistically tied in a new poll actually shows that Terry mcauliffe is losing and the Republican challenger is winning. These polls can be all over the place, but we've been keeping our eye in the Virginia governor's race, and we just did a massive event in Virginia. We had 3000 people show up in loudon county, Virginia, new poll alert, according to the university of Mary Washington, now Connor, that's not some right wing. Institution, right? That's not as if it was, you know, let's say Donald Trump organization doing the poll or whatever, right? Okay. So it says that young kin is leading in the polls with 48%, mcauliffe 43%. What is the RealClearPolitics average? Now show. That's always very interesting to look at. But the number one issue the number one issue as to why all of a sudden, the Virginia governor's race has been flipped upside down is schools. New polling shows that parents of K through 12 children. That means suburban women, and fathers, in Virginia, 56% of them want a Republican governor I can't imagine that this is not a recipe for victory for the Republican. Virginia has become a blue state Virginia has become a place that Republicans used to dominate and because of the growth of the kingdom of Washington D.C. in Northern Virginia in loudoun county and fairfax county in particular, these races have just been so frustrating and seemingly untouchable.
