Conservative wins in 2022: an end-of-year review

My first read every day is The Federalist. I found a very good “end of year” article summarizing a bunch of conservative wins from the past year, and wanted to cheer everyone up about those.

Here’s the list of 10 conservative wins from The Federalist, then we’ll take a look at a few of them:

  1. The Dobbs Decision Overturned Roe
  2. States, Courts, and Parents Pushed Back on Trans Agenda
  3. Americans Realized the Corporate Press Is a Threat to Democracy
  4. The Supreme Court Upheld Second Amendment Rights
  5. Wyomingites Threw Liz Cheney out of Congress
  6. A Federal Judge Smacked Down Biden’s Unlawful Mask Mandate
  7. ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Celebrated American Greatness
  8. Loudoun County Schools Saw a Measure of Justice
  9. Twitter Censors Lost Their Stranglehold on Speech
  10. States Started to Fight for Election Integrity

I think the story about Twitter becoming safe for free speech is probably the biggest story, but going forward, I think transgenderism and election integrity are going to be winning issues for conservatives.

So let’s take a look at transgender wins and election integrity wins:

2. States, Courts, and Parents Pushed Back on Trans Agenda

As the Biden administration pushes parents, schools, and the rest of America to embrace its transgender agenda, 2022 saw several victories in the fight against adults who try to sexually manipulate confused children.

After the U.S. Department of Agriculture added “sexual orientation and gender identity” to its interpretation of “sex” in Title IX — a move that could see schools “lose federal funds for lunch programs unless they allow boys in girls’ bathrooms” — 22 states sued the USDA and insisted that the rule change was in conflict with Title IX. Earlier this month, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the Biden administration’s attempt to force religious medical providers to perform sterilizing sex surgeries on patients with gender dysphoria.

Meanwhile, states such as Alabama and Arizona approved legislation this year banning doctors from deforming the sexual organs of minors. The Florida Board of Medicine passed similar protections, and Texas’s executive branch began investigating such procedures as child abuse. Roughly a dozen other states considered similar measures. And Virginia’s Department of Education released policies requiring students to use bathrooms corresponding with their sex, and requiring parental involvement and approval before school personnel could address minor students by any pronouns but their biologically accurate ones.

Parents and pastors have continued to fight back against the sexualization of children, too.


10. States Started to Fight for Election Integrity

While Republicans and state election officials have a lot of work left to do, 2022 saw some administrators realize what time it is and start pushing back on Democrats’ coordinated effort to federalize elections and institute mass mail-in voting and get-out-the-vote campaigns that overwhelmingly help Democrats. In August, 15 secretaries of state demanded a halt to the Biden administration’s plan to federalize elections via executive agencies.

In 2022, Alabama, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, and Virginia all passed laws banning private groups like Mark Zuckerberg’s Center for Tech and Civic Life from buying elections with grant cash. They joined Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, North Dakota, Ohio, and Tennessee, which banned “ZuckBucks” in 2021, and Texas and West Virginia, which have regulated their use. Furthermore, at least seven states passed 10 new laws tightening mail-in voting requirements, voter ID laws, address requirements, restrictions on Election Day voter registration, and voter-roll maintenance.

I think it’s going to be a great year. The school choice movement is making good gains, and the middle class is being hit with higher energy prices and inflation. We have a massive border crisis that is going to cost ordinary citizens a lot in higher education, health care and law enforcement costs. Most economists are expect a recession, and the spending bills of the secular left are only going to make that recession worse. By the time the primaries start, people will be ready to put the adults back in charge. I’m excited. It was easy to vote Democrat when the price was paid by other people. Now Democrat voters are paying the price for their own stupidity.

One thought on “Conservative wins in 2022: an end-of-year review”

  1. Here-here! Meanwhile, those under soros continue to undermine all of us. One thing liberals ignore is when under seep stress, such as the Great Depression, Americans tend to crystalize into conservatism. Arizonans are bitter about hobbs blatantly stealing the gubernatorial election using her powers to do so. If the supreme Court favors Lake, then Maricopa county will rehold the elections there. Regardless, already the move to remove hobbs is underway.
