Buoyed by Republican Mayra Flores’ historic victory this week in Texas, former Trump adviser and campaign manager Steve Bannon is predicting big wins for the Republican Party starting in November and lasting up to 100 years, at the minimum.
Bannon offered the bold prediction after he arrived at a district courthouse in D.C. on Wednesday for a hearing on his motion to dismiss a contempt indictment from the Jan. 6th committee.
Speaking outside the courthouse, he started off by mocking the Jan. 6th committee’s ratings and noting how the Democrat Party is losing on all fronts:
“MAGA is on the March. The J6 committee is totally irrelevant. Their ratings stink. … We are on the rise democratically. We’re going to win at the ballot box and we’re going to have a blowout. We’re going to have a 100-seat pickup this November. … We’re winning everywhere. We’re going to get 55 to 60 percent of the Hispanic vote this November. We’re going to get 50 percent of the African-American male vote this November. We’re going to have a blowout win,” he said.
“We’re going to win 80 to 100 seat pickup in the House of Representatives. We’re going to win the Senate. We’re going to win school boards. We’re going to throw out these Soros-backed DAs. We’re going to win state legislatures. We’re going to win all the secretaries of states that are running. We’re going to win the governorships. We’re going to win the state legislatures. This is going to be a massive blowout like 1932. You’re witnessing right now a political realignment like 1932. And we will govern for 100 years after we win 100 seats.”
Listen to his full remarks below:
A reporter then asked him if he wanted to “destroy the Democrats” and turn America into a “one-party” nation.
Bannon replied with a “no” and went on to describe a new political landscape devoid of the Democrat Party as an institution but not necessarily devoid of Democrats.
“I believe that we will destroy the Democrat Party as a national political institution. You’ll have the squad and a progressive party, and you’ll have the neoliberal neocons that the Jan. 6th committee is. You’ll have Liz Cheney and Kinzinger on one side. And you’ll have Shifty Shift and Swalwell on the other. A neoliberal neocon that represents Wall Street,” he said.
He concluded his remarks by citing Flores’ victory in the Rio Grande Valley as proof that “a populist uprising of Hispanics, African-Americans, and working-class people in this country is before us.”
But Bannon wasn’t done yet. After the court hearing, he delivered a couple more remarks in which he promised real investigations come January 2023.
“You saw last night in the Rio Grande Valley, this Democrat House is gone. They’re going to get wiped out this November, and we’re going to have a real investigation. The new House is going to have a real investigation. We’re going to get to the bottom of it. Every involvement of the FBI. Every FBI asset. What happened to Ashli Babbitt. All of it. It’s all going to come out. It’s going to come out starting next January,” he said.
“The American people on November 8th are going to vote on the legitimacy of the committee. You saw what happened in the Rio Grande Valley last night. An 84 percent Hispanic community voted these guys out, 52-48. The Hispanic community is going to vote for us. Over 50 percent of the African-American community is going to vote for us. We’re going to blowout this Congress.”
His predictions are on the mark. So far Republicans have been winning big in special elections like the one won by Flores.
Congresswoman-Elect Mayra Flores and the people of Texas have a message for Joe Biden!

Moreover, polling averages maintained by RealClearPolitics show Republicans ahead of Democrats by a whopping 3.4 percentage points on the 2022 generic ballot. That’s a lot considering that Republicans won semi-bigly in 2020 despite Democrats leading on the ballot by 3.1 percentage points.
Meanwhile, Democrat President Joe Biden’s average job approval rating briefly hit a record low of 38.9 percent this week. As of Thursday morning, it was hovering around 39.9 percent.
As for Bannon’s belief that Republicans will rule for 100 years, that seems unlikely. Past patterns show that American politics tends to function like a seesaw, with power flowing back and forth between the Democrats and Republicans.
For instance, growing discontent during Republican President George Bush’s eight-year presidency led to the rise of Democrat President Barack Obama.
But by the same token, growing discontent during Obama’s eight-year presidency led to the rise of Republican President Donald Trump.
Discontent during Trump’s four-year presidency then led to the rise of President Joe Biden.
And now massive discontent during Biden’s presidency is most likely leading to the rise of another Republican president — perhaps even Trump again …
