Reflecting on the biggest victory of the year for freedom-loving Americans
For conservatives and proponents of America First policies, Joe Biden’s administration has been painful to watch. As inflation erodes the economy and war continues to break out overseas, it seems as if nothing but bad news is rolling in every day.
Despite the United States’ negative spiral, there have been some massive victories for America First and the MAGA movement in 2023. Here are a few of the most prominent wins this year.
Kicking off 2023 with a Republican House majority
After a rough midterm election season in November 2022, Republicans won a small majority in the House of Representatives. Even though the majority is small (221 to 213), it was a big win for the America First movement, which helped strong Republicans like Rep. Kevin Kiley, R-Calif., get elected.
Washington, D.C., is still as crowded as ever, but in 2023, several strong Republicans have fought for Americans. These include Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., and Rep. Anna Paulina Luna, R-Fla.
House investigations into Joe Biden
Thanks to Republicans in the House, Americans across all political spectrums have been satisfied to see a slow and steady investigation into Joe Biden’s alleged foreign business dealings.
The investigations, spearheaded by the Oversight Committee’s Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., and the Judiciary Committee’s Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, have sparked national interest and attention into the Biden family’s alleged business associates in places like China and Ukraine.
The information that they have brought to light has been extensive, resulting in former Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy’s, R-Calif., move to direct the House Committees on the Judiciary, Oversight and Accountability, and Ways and Means to open a formal impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden in September.
President Trump’s campaign goes for gold
President Donald Trump made the wishes of MAGA supporters come true in November 2022 when he announced that he would be running for president again in a bid to reclaim the White House in 2024.
In 2023, his campaign took flight, and from January to nearly the close of the year, he successfully squashed all GOP competition and eclipsed Joe Biden in general election polling.
With just weeks to go until the Iowa caucuses, Trump is in the dominant position to sweep the Republican primary election and win the nomination, setting up a historic general election next November.
Tucker Carlson goes independent
Tucker Carlson was fired from his Fox News evening show in early spring 2023. This made conservatives angry and led to rumors about what the smart news host would do next. Tucker Carlson started his own show this year called “Tucker Carlson on X,” which has become a huge hit.
A lot of people watch his online talks. President Donald Trump, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, and Argentinian President-Elect Javier Milei are just a few of the famous people who have been on his show.
Carlson’s success has illustrated the power of breaking free and embracing independent media alternatives in an alarmingly totalitarian age of censorship and suppression.
Speaker of the House Mike Johnson
Rep. Matt Gaetz caused a lot of trouble in the House of Representatives this fall when he asked to take Kevin McCarthy’s place as Speaker of the House. McCarthy lost the gavel after only nine months as Speaker. He was the first Speaker in history to do so.
Even though things seemed to be going badly, Rep. Mike Johnson, R-La, was chosen as the new Speaker of the House by Republicans.
Talker Johnson has only been in office for a few weeks, but he has already taken some steps to show that he could be the strong conservative leader that people have been hoping for.
He strongly endorsed President Donald Trump’s reelection bid in November, and he has powerfully stated that he is a “Bible-believing Christian…go pick up a Bible off your shelf and read it – that’s my worldview.”
The release of the Jan. 6 tapes
This month, Speaker Johnson released the long-awaited security tapes from Jan. 6, 2021, fulfilling the requests of many proponents of transparency who have been calling for their release for years.
Per RSBN, Speaker Johnson explained that he wanted to “restore” the trust of the American people in their government and that “truth and transparency are critical.”
His predecessor’s failure to release the Jan. 6 tapes was a sticking point with many Republican voters, but Speaker Johnson has taken a different approach by delivering on his promise of releasing the tapes just a few weeks into his speakership.
