We’re calling it a red storm rising. Gingrich has picked the unfortunate and tired red tsunami line from 2018. Either way you slice it, the Democrats are in trouble.

Objective reporting for the educated American.
Gingrich: Big earthquakes offshore in Alaska or Chile lead Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders to worry about tsunamis coming from thousands of miles away. People take precautions. They move to higher ground. Faced with a real threat, Hawaiians prepare to make major changes to survive.
Apparently, Hawaiians are more interested in survival than Washington Democrats. Democrats have now had three weeks of tsunami warnings, and the dictatorship of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., seems determined to force through trillions of dollars of additional spending and a host of radical woke policies – even though the American people are screaming, “No!”
Big government socialism and woke radical policies – and incompetence on issues such as inflation, crime, controlling the border, leaving Afghanistan, and solving logistics problems – are all adding up to an easily repudiated mess. Fed up Americans have a simple battle cry: “It just doesn’t work.”
You may think I am exaggerating about a tsunami-like anti-Democrat wave, but consider recent evidence. On Nov. 2 Glenn Youngkin led an entire team to victory in Virginia. The team included Lt. Gov.-elect Winsome Sears, a Jamaica-born naturalized citizen who served in the U.S. Marine Corps and loves America. It also included Attorney General-elect Jason Miyares, the son of Cuban refugees who escaped the oppression of communism.
This diverse, impressive Republican team swept Virginia and carried with it a new Republican majority in the legislature. For Pelosi and the Democrats, this was earthquake No. 1. A few miles north, in New Jersey, Ed Durr Jr., an independent truck driver, defeated New Jersey State Senate President Stephen Sweeney in one of the biggest upsets in modern politics. Durr spent only $2,300. Clearly, the voters were saying: “Not Sweeney.” Consider that Sweeney got almost 59% of the vote four years earlier. This was earthquake No. 2.
And there were more quakes to follow. On the opposite side of the country, in Seattle, a Republican won the city attorney’s race for the first time in more than 30 years. In a state legislative special election in San Antonio, Texas, a Republican won in a 73% Latino district.
A few days later Democratic Texas State Legislator Ryan Guillen switched parties, saying: “After much consideration and prayer with my family, I feel that my fiscally conservative, pro-business, and pro-life values are no longer in-step with the Democrat Party of today, and I am proudly running as a Republican to represent House District 31.”
…Still, with the tide receding, Pelosi charges toward the beach – and the lemmings (replacing the donkey as the symbol of the Democratic Party) march in lockstep behind her, toward the coming tsunami.
