2022 Midterm Elections: U.S. House of Representatives Update

Published

on

Balance of power yet to be determined

The all-important 2022 Midterm Elections have come and gone—yet there are still several races that remain up for grabs.

The political weight of the midterm elections will decide what does or does not get done in Washington D.C over the next two years.

The eventual outcome will certainly make all the difference for President Joe Biden, whose legislative hopes ultimately rest on whether Democrats can push his agenda through an extremely partisan Congress.

Republicans are inching closer to capturing a majority of seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.

As of Monday, there are still 19 races yet to be called that will determine how close the margins could be for the party should it ultimately prevail.

To win a majority in the 435-seat body, a political party must win 218 seats.

Republicans are now projected to win control of the House after gaining seven seats: bringing their total to 212 seats so far.

Meanwhile, Democrats have 204 seats.

There are still multiple House races too close to call in California, New York, Oregon, Alaska, Arizona, and Maine.

Why Elon Musk was booed on stage

New Twitter boss Elon Musk did not receive the warmest welcome at Dave Chappelle’s recent comedy show

Elon Musk appeared embarrassed at Dave Chappelle’s recent San Francisco comedy show, when the audience began booing him.

A mixed reaction from audience members at the show. Some cheered as Chappelle welcome Musk onto the stage, but it was impossible to notice many booing him.

It’s no surprise though, given San Francisco is the home of Twitter HQ, and the place where Musk just fired thousands of staff.

It comes as the controversial new boss makes drastic changes to the social media platform.

 “Sounds like some of those people you fired are in the audience….

Don’t say nothing. You hear that sound, Elon? That’s the sound of pending civil unrest.”

After trying to joke his way around the awkwardness for Musk, Chappelle finished the show with some words of wisdom and a prayer.

“Booing is not the best thing you can do. I wish everybody in this auditorium the joy of feeling free and may your pursuit of happiness set you free. Amen.”

However, Musk has since responded to the booing from the crowd insisting it “was 90% cheers & 10% boos (except during quiet periods), but, still, that’s a lot of boos, which is a first for me in real life (frequent on Twitter).”

BORDER CRISIS: Republicans call for Homeland Security Sec. to resign

GOP delegation led by Kevin McCarthy showed ‘gratitude’ to border patrol and called for Mayorkas to resign or potentially face impeachment

Ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, a Republican delegation led by GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy is touring the U.S.-Mexico border in El Paso, Texas.

Officials say the visit to the southern border is a way for lawmakers to show gratitude to border patrol agents who have been inundated by unprecedented illegal crossings this year.

After their tour on Tuesday, Leader McCarthy called for Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to resign over his handling of the migrant crisis at the southern border – or potentially face an impeachment inquiry when Republicans take control of the House next year.

According to statistics some 2.3-million illegal migrants have walked across America’s southern border in this year alone.

The sheer volume of crossings are not only a security risk but also a humanitarian crisis.

America already is a country that has one of the most welcoming policies for legal immigration.

The all-important midterm elections have given Republicans the majority in the U.S. House of Representative.

In his first visit to the U.S.-Mexico border since being nominated to be speaker of the House for the next Congress by his Republican caucus, McCarthy in warning Biden and Democrats that they plan to use subpoena power to secure the border.

McCarthy accuses the White House of ‘actively undermining’ immigration enforcement—a contentious issue that has been plaguing the Executive branch of government under the Biden administration which has been turning a blind-eye to the criminal activity.

In a letter sent to Republicans last week, McCarthy said the southern border is the most important issue facing the new Congress.

Tuesday’s tour is the California Republican’s third trip to the southern border since President Joe Biden took office.
