Well, it looks like we were right again. Republican David Valadao was just sworn into California’s 21st Congressional District as U.S. House Rep to replace Democrat T.J. Cox. We predicted that he would not be much further right than a Democrat when we reported previously that he supported some amnesty for illegal immigrants.
From last year:
“BREAKING: Republican David Valadao wins election to U.S. House in California’s 21st Congressional District, beating incumbent pro-abortion Democrat Rep. T.J. Cox.”

Even though Valadao was just sworn in, he has already joined with the Democrats to be one of the ten Republicans voting to impeach President Donald Trump, just as he is on his way out of office anyway. This is seen to many as kicking a man while he is down so to speak.
President Trump has called for peace, and a peaceful transition, but it seems Democrats and some who just don’t like President Trump want to tarnish him forever and make it impossible for him to run for president in the future. Meanwhile, some banks and businesses have stopped doing business with Trump after some Trump supporters apparently stormed the U.S. Capitol Building recently.
President Trump insists he only wants peace but many have blamed him for that event and he is banned on social media. It is going to be hard for the GOP to find a way forward due to many Republican officials turning on him. Many Americans still support Donald Trump and his popularity is arguably going to stay high for the forseeable future.
Meanwhile, the GOP will have to determine how they view Valadao going forward. Are they going to be the anti-Trump pro-amnesty party, or will there be pushback on this type of action in the Republican party? Many Trump supporters are done voting for soft ‘RINOs’ and only want America First candidates who are strong on border security and other things President Trump ran in in 2016.
Earlier we reported on the vote to impeach Trump for the second time in part:
The House of Representatives has voted today for the second time in his current tenure to impeach President Trump with the Democrats again voting unanimously and this time ten Republicans joined them.
The list of Republicans who joined is: John Katko (NY), Adam Kinzinger (IL), Liz Cheney (WY), Fred Upton (MI), Peter Meijer (MI), Jaime Herrera Beutler (WA), Dan Newhouse (WA), Tom Rice (SC), Anthony Gonzalez (OH), and David Valadao (CA).
It’s tough to say what will happen in the U.S. Senate as Mitch reportedly isn’t happy with Trump but also won’t convene early, leaving only one possible day for the Senate to convict.
