Mad Maxine Waters Says Trump Is ‘Attempting to Organize His Domestic Terrorists’

Mad Maxine Waters Says Trump Is ‘Attempting to Organize His Domestic Terrorists’

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Rage, Race-Hate, and Insanity) is enraged over the fact that Donald Trump has called upon his supporters to protest when he is arrested. According to Mad Maxine, Trump was employing one of those “dog whistles” that Leftists so often like to accuse patriots of using. She claimed that what the former president and 2024 front-runner was really doing was “attempting to organize his domestic terrorists.”

This is balderdash, but Waters feels free to say it on MSNBC because it’s fully consistent with what Leftists have been claiming for years now and is a centerpiece of the Left’s overall strategy: to paint Trump and his supporters as terrorists and the entire America-First perspective as one that must be allowed no place in the public square because it leads to criminal and terrorist activity.

Yes, this is the same Maxine Waters who, back in 2018, exhorted her followers to confront and menace Trump administration officials: “If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

This is also the same Maxine Waters who raged in June 2022 after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, “They ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Women are going to control their bodies, no matter how they try to stop us. The hell with the Supreme Court. We will defy them. Women will be in control of their bodies, and if they think black women are intimidated or afraid, they got another thought comin’. Black women will be out in droves. We will be out by the thousands. We will be out by the millions. We are going to make sure that we fight for the right to control our own bodies.” Apparently, as far as Waters was concerned, that fight involved illegal defiance of the Dobbs v. Jackson decision. What’s the word for that sort of thing? Oh, yeah: insurrection.

But Maxine Waters is a Leftist, and that means that she never has to say she’s sorry. And so on MSNBC’s The Saturday Show with Jonathan Capehart, Capehart lobbed Waters a softball about their common villain’s egregious statement over being subject to an unjust arrest, banana republic style: “You had been warning everybody since the beginning of the Trump presidency about who he is,” Capehart reminded Waters as if she might have forgotten the focus of her rage and hate for the last six or seven years. “Your reaction to the breaking news this morning from the former president who says on his own social media platform that he will be arrested, he says this, on Tuesday?”

Waters responded: “Well, let me just say this, Jonathan. Constantly, as I travel around the country, people are asking me, when is he going to be arrested and indicted? Is he above the law, hasn’t done enough so that the American people can have faith and confidence that the law applies to him also?”

No, she didn’t mean Hunter Biden, much less Old Joe, and she said nothing about Nancy Pelosi’s insider trading or Hillary Clinton’s entire career. If anyone is above the law in America today, it is the Leftist elites, not Trump, who has been the object of more investigations than any other president in American history.

Nonetheless, Waters plowed on with hysterical and baseless charges, claiming that Trump “has disrespected the Constitution of the United States of America.” How? She added that he “has lied” and “has tried to organize domestic terrorists. And some believe that he did organize them as they attacked our Capitol on January 6.” Even after the Jan. 6 “insurrection” narrative has exploded, Mad Max is still pushing it. She knows that her rabid-Left base will cling to it no matter how much information comes out showing that it was a hoax.

Waters went on to claim risibly that “the charges that he’s being indicted on are minimal, as opposed to the charges that I believe he could have been indicted on,” as if Democrats haven’t been trying to hang anything they could on Trump for eight years. She repeated that Trump is “attempting to organize his domestic terrorists to show up and to resist him being arrested… perhaps he was trying to organize domestic terrorists, to protest his arrest.”

That’s one of the main reasons why the arrest is in the offing: to provoke protests that Leftists can use to further their “insurrection” narrative and impose more of their authoritarian agenda among the American people. Waters on MSNBC Saturday was laying the groundwork for claims on Tuesday that Trump’s followers engaged in terrorist acts and that the FBI is therefore justified in treating support for Trump as terrorism. The hook has been baited.

McCarthy Says Trump Indictment Could Be Federal Election Interference

McCarthy Says Trump Indictment Could Be Federal Election Interference



Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

As local, state, and federal officials and agencies seem to be preparing to indict and even arrest Donald Trump, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) announced that he has directed an investigation into whether federal money is being used to target Trump as a form of 2024 election interference.

“Here we go again — an outrageous abuse of power by a radical DA who lets violent criminals walk as he pursues political vengeance against President Trump,” McCarthy tweeted on March 18. “I’m directing relevant committees to immediately investigate if federal funds are being used to subvert our democracy by interfering in elections with politically motivated prosecutions.”

Let’s hope McCarthy follows through to punish Democrats and back Trump if election interference is indeed happening (which wouldn’t be surprising, as the Democrats have been influencing elections through blatant lies since Andrew Jackson).

As PJ Media’s Matt Margolis explained, “These agencies are carrying out preliminary security assessments and deliberating over potential security arrangements around the Manhattan Criminal Court situated at 100 Centre Street. The discussion revolves around the chance that Trump may be charged with an alleged hush-money payment to Stormy Daniels and could travel to New York to face the charges if any.”

PJ Media’s Robert Spencer also noted that, if everything goes according to the current trend, “Trump will not just be arrested but handcuffed and perp-walked for maximum media effect.” The idea is to try and knock Trump out of the 2024 presidential race — but also, I suspect, to enact revenge. Trump humiliated the over-confident Democrats in 2016, and he’s still more popular than Joe Biden. Many Democrats continue to have an irrational and excessive hatred of Trump.

The Democrats have been lying about Trump non-stop, it seems, for years now. The “Russian collusion” accusations, which some outlets and politicians still cite, turned out to be a total hoax. And Trump not only called for peace on Jan. 6, 2021, but new video evidence also reinforced the fact that Trump supporters did not start a premeditated “insurrection” on Jan. 6. But while Hunter Biden continues free and unmolested despite a heap of evidence, the government is still obsessed with Trump. McCarthy seems to have hit on the reason why.

As the Democrats continue to attack Trump and other opponents with blatant political bias, it’s more important than ever to get the news the mainstream media doesn’t want you to know. Become a PJ Media VIP member and sign up for one or all of our newsletters!

Alvin Bragg's case against Trump hinges on witnesses with 'credibility problems': Legal expert

On Saturday morning, Donald Trump acknowledged that he will indeed be arrested, saying that the fateful day will be this coming Tuesday. Trump wrote in all caps on Truth Social:



It’s understandable that Trump would want protests. He is about to be arrested in order to give Leftists the photo-op of their bête noire in handcuffs that they have slavered for over the last few years and to further their efforts to stigmatize and ultimately criminalize their opposition, as Old Joe Biden signaled was coming in September when he declared that “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”

What’s more, Trump is about to be arrested on charges that he paid $130,000 to a prostitute, Stormy Daniels, in order to buy her silence over their liaison. Even the New York Times admits that this is a far-fetched basis for handcuffing the man and subjecting him to a perp walk. The Times conceded on March 9, in an article about how criminal charges were pending against Trump that “hush money is not inherently illegal.” Working hard to justify this looming pseudo-legal banana-republic action of arresting the sitting president’s principal opponent, the Times continued by suggesting that “the prosecutors could argue that the $130,000 payout effectively became an improper donation to Mr. Trump’s campaign, under the theory that because the money silenced Ms. Daniels, it benefited his candidacy.” They could argue that. Hardly a slam-dunk case.

The Times concluded by admitting again that the case against Trump is shaky at best: “Combining the criminal charge with a violation of state election law would be a novel legal theory for any criminal case, let alone one against the former president, raising the possibility that a judge or appellate court could throw it out or reduce the felony charge to a misdemeanor.” Indeed, especially since Stormy Daniels owes Trump $300,000 for a failed defamation suit and is hardly a reliable witness. It’s clear that Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg is proceeding with the arrest in service of the Left’s agenda and is heedless of the weakness of his case.

Nonetheless, Trump’s call for protests is ill-advised, and patriots would be wise to stay at home on Tuesday and not go out to protest in Manhattan or anywhere else. This is because the Biden regime wants the protests and is gearing up the Joint Terrorism Task Force, among other agencies, to deal with the anticipated unrest. Just as we saw on Jan. 6, 2021, any protest is likely to be thoroughly infiltrated with feds, Antifa, and similar operatives who will be doing all they can to provoke an event that can be used to demonize Trump and his supporters anew.

As I explain in The Sumter Gambit: How the Left Is Trying to Foment A Civil War, this is a conscious strategy that the Left has adopted. The Leftist establishment is doing everything it can to provoke unrest from the Right. Then it will use that unrest to support its claims that patriots are actually traitors and insurrectionists, and that their authoritarian crackdowns are therefore justified. The goal is to rule political dissent out of bounds altogether so that only the Leftist perspective is allowed to be publicly articulated in the United States.

This makes it clear that one of the reasons why Trump is being arrested at all is so that there will be protests, which the Biden regime and its media propagandists can then instrumentalize in service of their sinister agenda. Patriots must not take the bait. The proper response to the Trump arrest is not to take to the streets but to work all the harder for just election laws and candidates who understand the real and sinister nature of what we’re facing today, and how the freedom of the republic is indeed on the line as Old Joe said, but not in the way he meant. Biden and his cohorts are the real threat to the republic, not its defenders.

Trump & DeSantis Target “Woke” Education on Road to White House

Trump & DeSantis Target “Woke” Education on Road to White House



Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

Former President Donald Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis are both focusing heavily on education policy in the run-up to the 2024 election, suggesting the issue will take center stage over the next two years. DeSantis is already on the warpath in Florida, as Trump vows to wrest control of schools from “radical left maniacs” and “pink-haired communists” in his second term.

Among other tactics, both men are vowing to ramp up conservative defenses in the ongoing culture war within schools as public education becomes increasingly radicalized — and unpopular with parents desperate to stop the sexualization and indoctrination of their children at taxpayer expense. Even many Democrats are unhappy. 

As the 2024 election heats up and more GOP challengers emerge, DeSantis has still not formally announced that he is running, though it is common knowledge in Tallahassee that the popular governor will throw his hat in the ring at some point. Education policy has been a signature issue that propelled “America’s Governor” to national stardom. 

Indeed, DeSantis developed a national reputation as a conservative champion of education by taking on the “Branch Covidians” and their totalitarian Covid policies, including the forced masking of children. He has also secured perceived policy wins such as protections against sexualizing young children and race-mongering in the classroom. And he is tackling “woke” forces in higher education as well. 

How DeSantis’ wildly popular policies in Florida would translate to the federal level remains to be seen. However, key education establishment bosses such as American Federation of Teachers (AFT) boss Randi Weingarten and left-wing propagandists have argued that the governor is actually seeking to destroy public education completely.  

Trump, who is currently dominating in the polls among GOP primary voters, has also made education a major focus of his campaign. In his recently released “plan to save American education,” Trump outlined a variety of proposals that would use federal power and funds to rein in the escalating woke-ism taking over K-12 schools.

In the video, which came before a yet-to-be-released formal plan, Trump vowed to cut federal funding to any “school or program pushing critical race theory, gender ideology, or other inappropriate racial, sexual or political content onto our children.” He also vowed to ensure that “woke” teachers were removed as parents are empowered to have more say through policies such as elections of principals.

“When I’m president, we will put parents back in charge and give them the final say,” Trump said. “We will get back to teaching reading, writing, and math — arithmetic — and we will give our kids the high-quality, pro-America education they deserve.… We’re at the end of every list on education, yet we spend the most. We’re going to change it around.” 

In one of the most significant threats, Trump vowed to unleash the Department of Justice and other federal agencies on school officials that engage in “race-based discrimination,” including that aimed at Americans of Asian ancestry. He also promised to keep men out of women’s sports while slashing administrators — especially those working in “diversity and equity” bureaucracies. 

Marxist indoctrination will be targeted as well, with Trump saying it resembles an established religion and noting that it is hostile to America’s biblical heritage. “My administration will aggressively pursue potential violations of the establishment clause and the free exercise clause of the Constitution,” Trump declared, adding that he would immediately remove the zealots and radicals who infiltrated education.    

During his first campaign, Trump repeatedly slammed Common Core and even suggested multiple times that the U.S. Department of Education should be abolished. As president, he repeatedly warned of the urgent need to protect American children from the “indoctrination” taking place in “failing government schools.” 

But despite the rhetoric, Trump’s education secretary, Betsy DeVos, largely maintained the status quo. From signing international agreements for globalizing education to ensuring that Common Core remained firmly entrenched nationwide, DeVos was remarkably unremarkable considering Trump’s otherwise game-changing presidency. That may change in a second term.   

The trend toward a relentless focus on education and stopping left-wing extremism in the classroom comes as taking on the far-left education establishment has proven to be a powerful winning strategy for Republicans. In Virginia, analysts widely attributed the major victory of Republican Glenn Youngkin to education policy.  

The other contenders who have announced so far, Nikki Haley and Vivek Ramaswamy, both of Indian descent, have also lambasted the “woke” propaganda and the hyper-racialism disguised as “diversity.” Still, few analysts are taking them seriously as contenders as Trump and DeSantis dominate the headlines. 

This focus on fundamental and systemic issues in education is a welcome development. Because most American children are still in government schools, the issue transcends all others. Unfortunately, reforming cancer will still leave the victim with cancer. Public education is a burning building — it’s time to evacuate rather than discuss changes to the wallpaper.


Iranian Mullahs Ratchet Up Threats to Kill Trump



Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

The Leftist establishment and the Biden regime want to destroy Donald Trump politically, but the Islamic Republic of Iran wants to do Old Joe and his henchmen one better: the mullahs and their cohorts are making no secret of the fact that they want Trump dead, along with Mike Pompeo and others involved in the 2020 killing of Iranian military commander Qasem Soleimani. On Tuesday, Fox News reported that Iran has renewed its threats against Trump and the others, and even stated them in Islamic religious terms. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps aerospace force, declared: “God willing, we are looking to kill Trump [and] Pompeo… and military commanders who issued the order should be killed.”

Armies of all kinds throughout history have invoked God’s help in their activities in wartime, and so it’s no surprise that a commander in an avowedly theocratic regime would do so. It’s nonetheless worth noting, however, as those who are convinced that they’re fighting an apocalyptic struggle of good vs. evil are unlikely to give up easily.

In line with that, as protests have rocked the Islamic Republic over the last few months, the Iranian regime has charged several protesters with “waging war against Allah,” a crime that is based on the Qur’an: “The only reward for those who make war upon Allah and his messenger and struggle to sow corruption on earth will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet cut off on opposite sides, or be expelled from the land. Such will be their degradation in this world, and in the hereafter, theirs will be an awful doom” (5:33). Stating the civil unrest in Iran in such stark and uncompromising terms is not just an attempt to terrorize the regime’s opponents into submission; it’s also a claim to hold the moral high ground: a war against the regime, you see, is the same thing as going to war against the Almighty Himself.

As he reiterated the Islamic regime’s threat against Trump, Hajizadeh emphasized that Iran did not plan to kill “poor soldiers,” but was gunning for the ringleaders. Iran analyst Behnam Ben Taleblu warned that the threats should be taken seriously: “Make no mistake, Iranian military officials mean what they say here. They still seek to wash the blood away with blood. Threats by the long arm of the world’s foremost state sponsor of terrorism against American officials like Trump, Pompeo, and McKenzie are not to be taken lightly.” Gen. Kenneth McKenzie is the former head of U.S. Central Command. Ben Taleblu added: “This regime continues to put its money where its mouth is when it comes to global terrorism.”

While the threats are no doubt serious, it also must be noted that we have heard all this before. Back on New Year’s Day 2022, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, tweeted: “Martyr Soleimani is an eternal reality that will live on forever. His assassins – including Trump & the like – will go down in history’s garbage bin, but of course, after receiving retribution in this world for the crime they committed.”

Even before that, Iran’s state-controlled Ahlul Bayt News Agency reported on January 23, 2021, that the Supreme Leader’s official website “posted a photo-montage of former US President Donald Trump playing golf under the shadow of a drone, vowing to avenge the assassination of Iran’s Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani.”

Khamenei also thundered in December 2020: “Revenge is certain.” He added: “The assassin of Soleimani and the one who ordered the murder should be punished. As an esteemed person said, Soleimani’s shoe is worth more than the assassin’s head and even decapitation of the assassin will not compensate for Soleimani’s shoe, but they did the wrong thing. They should be punished. The one who ordered and the assassin should know that they should be punished at any time possible.”

Trump was a favored Khamenei target even before Soleimani was killed. In February 2019, the Supreme Leader declared to a military gathering that “as long as America continues its wickedness, the Iranian nation will not abandon ‘Death to America.’ ‘Death to America’ means death to Trump, John Bolton, and Pompeo. It means death to American rulers.”

The Iranians have not, however, threatened Old Joe Biden. After all, what has he done but try to appease the Islamic Republic? Why kill someone who could turn out to be quite useful?

PNC Bank Abruptly Ends Business Relationship with Don Trump Jr.’s News App

PNC Bank Abruptly Ends Business Relationship with Don Trump Jr.’s News App



Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

In another huge instance of financial censorship, PNC Financial Services Group Inc. suddenly ended its business relationship with MxM, Donald Trump Jr.’s news aggregation app company. The app was designed to be a more balanced alternative to the likes of Apple and Google News, according to Fox News Digital. As Trump Jr. explained, he wants to help create a “parallel economy” to the woke-enslaved major corporations, including Big Media. PNC Bank doesn’t seem to agree with that vision.

MxM News, launched in 2022 by Don Jr. and former Trump spokesman Taylor Budowich, is owned by ROCDIGITAL, LLC. The company insists this is more woke financial censorship targeting conservative entities. Budowich told Fox Digital he only discovered their company account with PNC had been terminated when he tried to pay vendor invoices at a Florida branch office. He explained, “The teller said he was unable to complete the transfers as the account had been closed and the balance had been zeroed out.”

Budowich continued, “After being told to call a generic helpline, I was informed by the PNC representative that per the terms and conditions, PNC reserves the right to re-evaluate their business relationships at any time and terminate accounts without cause.” The phrase “without cause” seems significant—it indicates that PNC itself knows there was no reason to terminate the account. “Woke corporations are using their terms and conditions like a guillotine over the head of every conservative entrepreneur,” Budowich concluded.

Don Jr. explained that MxM was created to “provide curated stories that are being silenced and or suppressed by big tech and the mainstream media.” The app is set to expand to include more localized news, too, per Fox. MxM includes articles from more mainstream or left-leaning sources such as ABC, NPR, and AP, along with conservative sites such as The Daily Caller, Just the News, and The Washington Free Beacon.

”However, as this shows, it’s not just the media that’s become plagued by the woke agenda,” Trump Jr. told Fox Digital. “It’s banks, it’s entire corporate America.” He called the PNC account termination “a minor setback for MxM News that we were able to quickly resolve.” Still, he added, “But what about every other start-up or small business that wants to pursue a values-based company? This should be investigated, and it should be illegal to discriminate based on political affiliation.”

PNC claimed to Fox that account closures have nothing to do with political affiliation. “As a national bank, we recognize and respect that our customers and our employees hold a wide range of political beliefs,” PNC said. PNC has not explained why it did end the account, however.

Banks have drawn criticism for closing a number of conservative accounts in the last few years, Fox Digital said. A Florida bank closed Donald Trump’s account in January 2021, for instance, and MyPillow CEO and Trump ally Mike Lindell had two banks cut ties with him in January 2022.

Hence, Donald Trump Jr. insisted to Fox Digital, “We need a patriot economy. We need a parallel economy to fight back.”

Trump Jr. is set to speak at CPAC 2023 on Friday.

Trump: ‘We Are at the Brink of World War III’

Trump: 'We Are at the Brink of World War III'



Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

Donald Trump formally kicked off his 2024 campaign on Saturday, blitzing the states of South Carolina and New Hampshire — the first two states on the Republican primary calendar in 2024.

Trump may not have wanted to begin his formal campaign for president so soon. But others, including the man who might be his most dangerous rival, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, may have forced his hand. Trump is still ahead in the polls, but DeSantis has begun to surge and in some early states — specifically, New Hampshire — DeSantis is ahead. A University of New Hampshire survey released this week showed DeSantis leading Trump 42% to 30%.

Trump is experienced enough to know that these early polls don’t mean anything. The real tests will come in the early primaries.

Meanwhile, Trump has a Democrat to bury. Joe Biden may be the absolutely worst man to serve as president when Vladimir Putin is rattling his nuclear weapons.

“Through weakness and incompetence, Joe Biden has brought us to the brink of World War III,” Trump said. “We’re at the brink of World War III, just in case anybody doesn’t know it. As president, I will bring back peace through strength.”

Meanwhile, Biden keeps poking the Russian bear counting on Russian President Vladimir Putin not to lash out and start a world war.

NBC News:

He called Biden’s botched American pullout from Afghanistan in 2021 “the lowest day in the history of our country” and claimed that if he were president, there would be “a peace deal negotiated within 24 hours” to end Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

He blamed Biden for border crossings and drug deaths, repeating his 2015 assertion that Mexico is sending “killers,” “murderers” and “rapists” to the U.S.

“They are sending people that are killers, murderers, they’re sending rapists. And they’re sending, frankly, terrorists, or terrorists are coming on their own, and we can’t allow this to happen,” Trump said.

But it’s the DeSantis vs. Trump cage match that will dominate the political conversation over the next year or more. And on Saturday, Trump had plenty to say about his main GOP rival.


On Saturday, Trump took his sharpest swings at DeSantis to date, accusing the governor of “trying to rewrite history” over his response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Trump said DeSantis, who has been openly skeptical about government efforts to vaccinate people against the virus, “promoted the vaccine as much as anyone.” He praised governors who did not close down their states, noting that DeSantis ordered the closure of beaches and business in some parts of the state.

“When I hear that he might [run] I think it’s very disloyal,” Trump said.

As for the polls showing DeSantis beating him in key nominating states, Trump was dismissive.

“He won’t be leading, I got him elected,” he said. “I’m the one that chose him.”

For some Republicans, it comes down to which candidate is more likely to attract a broad cross-section of American voters and prevail against Biden. To answer that, Trump brought the house down in New Hampshire with some of his policy prescriptions.

During his speech in New Hampshire, Trump doled out red meat to a friendly crowd. The crowd roared with applause when he said that, if elected, he would “eliminate federal funding for any school that pushes critical race theory or left-wing gender ideology,” and support “direct election of school principals by the parents.”

His speech in New Hampshire echoed policy prescriptions he has released over the past several weeks in the form of video addresses, on issues such as education and protecting Social Security and Medicare. His team has seen those pronouncements as a way to maneuver back onto the political stage without having to organize the signature rallies that defined Trump’s prior bids.

You can bet the farm that the Democrats and their radical allies will pull out all the stops to smear Trump — but only after he wins the nomination. It’s plain that the Democrats would much rather face Trump in a general election, having beaten him once already. But Republican voters will make the final determination about who the Democrats face, and whether it’s Trump or not, they have a miserable record to defend.

Trump Attacks His Own Base, Blames Pro-Lifers for Midterms

What The --?? Trump Moves Left, Attacks Pro-Lifers



Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

2023 is off to a resounding start, with the most pro-life president of the post-Roe v. Wade era blaming pro-lifers for the Republicans’ disappointing showing in the midterm elections. After being widely blamed for that poor showing, Donald Trump struck back on New Year’s Day, writing on Truth Social: “It wasn’t my fault that the Republicans didn’t live up to expectations in the MidTerms. I was 233-20! It was the ‘abortion issue,’ poorly handled by many Republicans, especially those that firmly insisted on No Exceptions, even in the case of Rape, Incest, or the Life of the Mother, that lost large numbers of Voters. Also, the people that pushed so hard, for decades, against abortion, got their wish from the U.S. Supreme Court, & just plain disappeared, not to be seen again. Plus, Mitch stupid $’s!”

The singular achievement of the Trump presidency was the appointment of three pro-life Supreme Court justices who finally rid the nation of Roe v. Wade, which even the Left’s Supreme Court heroine Ruth Bader Ginsburg acknowledged was poorly reasoned, on thin (at best) Constitutional foundations, and simply bad law. Donald Trump, despite the shortcomings of his superabundantly publicized personal life, won the enduring gratitude of pro-lifers by laying the foundation for the removal of that exercise of judicial tyranny. The Dobbs decision came courtesy of the justices he appointed, and restored to each individual state the right to determine its abortion laws, and to outlaw it if a majority saw fit to do so. As a result, the relentless sacrifices to Moloch have actually eased in some areas.

It would be reasonable to think that any candidate responsible for such an achievement would run on it and run on it hard, but Trump is busy running the other way. He claims that “the ‘abortion issue’” was “poorly handled by many Republicans, especially those that firmly insisted on No Exceptions, even in the case of Rape, Incest, or Life of the Mother, that lost large numbers of Voters,” and yet there simply were no such candidates in the 2022 midterms. Not a single Republican was out there running on the idea that abortion must be banned when the life of the mother is at risk. The question of whether a mother should kill her child if her own life is in danger, rather than sacrifice her life so that her child may live, is a separate question; the fact remains that this was simply not an issue for anyone in 2022. So what is Trump talking about?

Trump also apparently believes that pro-life positions cost Republicans at the polls. Yet even a cursory glance at the record shows that not to be the case. After the Dobbs decision, Trump’s bête noire, Ron DeSantis, vowed to expand pro-life protections. Yet DeSantis won nearly 60% of the vote as he was reelected governor of Florida in November 2022. Brian Kemp once tweeted: “I’m pro-life and unapologetic about it. During my time as Secretary of State, I sued the Obama Justice Department twice – and won – to keep illegals from voting. As governor, I’ll do what it takes to have the strongest pro-life, anti-abortion laws in the country.” Yet in 2022, he once again defeated the perennial rising star of the Democrat party and the establishment media, supermodel Stacey Abrams. And it’s the same all over the country: the strongest pro-life candidates, including Mike DeWine in Ohio and Greg Abbott in Texas, won their 2022 elections. So whom is Trump talking about?

There is likewise no actual evidence for Trump’s claim that pro-life voters “got their wish from the U.S. Supreme Court, & just plain disappeared, not to be seen again.” The media spent the summer and fall boasting that young women, eager to abort their children, would swing the election hard to the Left; although the Republicans underperformed, this was not due to any pro-abortion wave, but to the effects of gerrymandering and mail-in ballots. Republican candidates actually secured a decisive national popular vote advantage, but due to Democrat and RINO chicanery, this didn’t translate into seats.

Trump was certainly correct, however, that “Mitch’s stupid $” was a baneful influence on the elections, but this was an ancillary point that many others have made, and certainly didn’t outweigh the significance of the pro-life president abandoning and criticizing his own base. Trump has apparently decided to try to appeal to the Romney/Cheney establishment Republicans, a strategy that is almost certainly doomed to fail, as they hate him passionately and immovably, and his move to the Left will only alienate his core supporters.

This is a great shame. Trump was a remarkably effective president. In my book Rating America’s Presidents. I gave him the highest possible rating. But is Trump himself aware of what made his presidency so successful? At this point, the answer to that question is unclear at best.

Federal Judge Prevents Biden’s DHS From Ending Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” Policy



Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

A federal judge in Texas has issued a stay to prevent the Department of Homeland Security from ending the Trump-era “Remain in Mexico” program.

“This action has a complex procedural history, having gone from this Court to the Fifth Circuit, to the Supreme Court, and back to this Court on remand,” U.S. District Judge Matthew J. Kacsmaryk wrote in his decision.

The Trump-appointed judge likened the procedural wrangling over the policy to The Hobbit. “Or ‘there and back again,” he wrote. ” See J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit, or There and Back Again (1937).”

Indeed, it’s a mess. Biden has been there and back again to the Supreme Court, and in between, appellate courts have gone back and forth on whether the program should be terminated.

Fox News:

Under the program, migrants not enrolled in MPP should be processed under other existing legal authorities, but Biden issued an executive order directing Mayorkas to review and determine whether to terminate the program or modify it.

The State of Texas filed litigation against the move, asserting the memorandum violated the Immigration and Nationality Act, or INA, under which an alien who arrives on land from a foreign territory can be returned to that territory after a court hearing.

A separate provision of the INA says if an alien seeking admission is not clearly and beyond a doubt entitled to be admitted, the alien should be detained until a hearing can be held.

DHS has been trying to end the program but each time they’ve tried, the courts have struck them down for various procedural reasons. For example, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas wrote a memo outlining reasons for terminating the program. Still, the Supreme Court sent the case back to Kacsmaryk for him to decide if the memo was arbitrary and capricious.

In his decision this week, Judge Kacsmaryk said the court stays, or suspends the Oct. 29 memoranda and previous decision on June 1, 2021, from DHS to terminate MPP “until the Court can resolve the merits of Plaintiffs’ claims.”

Then-candidate Biden pledged to end the program if elected, and soon after entering office the Biden administration shut it down and released those enrolled in the program into the U.S. Mayorkas claimed the policy was not only cruel but ineffective.

If the policy was “cruel and ineffective,” it was because Mexico failed to care for the immigrants who were sent back. The asylum seekers lived in squalor and were in danger from gangs because Mexico failed to live up to its promises when Trump made the deal to send them to stay in Mexico until their status was clarified.

Biden is probably secretly thanking Trump and Judge Kacsmaryk. He’s going to need all the help he can get to withstand the tsunami of human beings that will rush the border on December 21, when the pandemic-era immigration policy Title 42 will end.

Guns Blazing, Trump Declares War on American Free Speech Despots~FBI Hardest Hit



Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

Trump declared war Thursday on those who have been censoring online content by releasing his plan to “reclaim” free speech for the United States.

With a bang, Trump released his 5-point plan. His nearly seven-minute video begins with the declaration:

If we don’t have free speech, then we just don’t have a free country. It’s as simple as that. If this fundamental right is allowed to perish, then the rest of our rights and liberties will topple, just like dominoes. One by one, they’ll go down. That’s why today I’m announcing my plan to shatter the left-wing censorship regime and to reclaim the right to free speech for all Americans, and reclaim is a very important word in this case because they’ve taken it away.

Trump then takes aim at “deep state bureaucrats, silicone valley tyrants, left-wing activists, and depraved corporate news media” who have been “conspiring to manipulate and silence the American people” on everything from elections to public health.

COMMIE-O-RAMA! Before Elon Musk took over Twitter, anyone questioning the 2020 election results or the federal response to all things COVID faced the possibility of being kicked off of the social media giant’s platform.

Trump’s 5-point plan to make free speech great again includes:

1) Within hours of being sworn in, Trump claims he will sign an Executive Order (EO) banning ANY federal department or agency from colluding with anyone to censor lawful speech. He will ban federal money from being used to label domestic speech as “dis” or “mis” information.

2) He will order the DOJ to investigate and prosecute anyone involved with online censorship, including members of the FBI.

3) Trump will ask Congress to send a bill to him revising Section 230.

4) Trump wants to break up the “toxic censorship industry,” including universities, that has arisen to tackle so-called “mis” and disinformation. Trump stated that schools and non-profits caught red-handed should lose federal financial backing for five years, if not longer.

5) Congress should pass a digital bill of rights law, meaning government officials will need a court order to take down online content. This means the FBI could no longer have weekly meetings with Twitter and Facebook to have the content removed at their will.

RELATED: Trump Should Not Return to Twitter — Here’s Why

Trump also urged House Republicans to send preservation letters—now—to Biden, the Biden campaign, Silicon Valley tech giants, and anyone else involved in censorship.

FACT-O-RAMA! Trump called for a “seven-year cooling off period” before any employee of the FBI, DOD, CIA, NSA, DNI, and DHS can take a job with any company possessing vast quantities of U.S. user data.

Trump repeatedly mentioned going after federal employees involved in online censorship and mentioned the FBI by name several times.

Trump closed with the following:

The fight for free speech is a matter of victory or death for America, and for the survival of Western Civilization itself. When I am president, this whole rotten system of censorship and information control will be ripped out of the system at large. There won’t be anything left. By restoring free speech we will begin to reclaim our democracy and save our nation. Thank you and God bless America.

The Trump special counsel is a career hack with a record of going after conservatives



Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

When Bruce Wasserstein, a billionaire backer of the Clintons, provided a $25 million donation to Harvard Law, future Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, then serving as dean, welcomed it. The gift built on the Wasserstein Fellows Program already established at Harvard Law which brought “outstanding public interest lawyers” to Harvard and provided them stipends of up to $24,000 to meet with and influence students toward social justice at the prestigious law school.

When Jack Smith became a Wasserstein Fellow, even while, unironically, serving as head of the Department of Justice’s Public Integrity Section, seemingly soliciting and accepting a grant funded by a leftist billionaire (but who watches the integrity of the head of the Public Integrity Section) he joined a list of leftist activist lawyers working for the ACLU, Earthjustice, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, Soros’ Open Society, Catholic Charities and the UN.

The mission of the Wasserstein Fellows was to gather “a diverse group of accomplished public interest lawyers who are enthusiastic about sharing their passions with law students on how to utilize their legal education to promote social justice.” Those passions included illegal migration, letting criminals get away with committing crimes, and dismantling America.

How the DOJ’s Jack Smith would go about promoting social justice was a question that was answered twice. At least twice in public view where everyone could see and hear it.

The latest came when Attorney General Garland picked Smith as the Special Counsel to go after Trump. But before that anyone wondering what Jack Smith did to be chosen as a social justice lawyer would have had to be paying close attention to the IRS scandal that took place a year before he was made a Wasserstein Fellow.

Under Obama, the IRS and the DOJ had illegally targeted conservative nonprofits in order to silence political dissent. While Lois Lerner, sourly testifying before Congress, became the profoundly unsympathetic face of the IRS, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee revealed who was playing a key role in criminalizing dissent.

“The Justice Department convened a meeting with former IRS official Lois Lerner in October 2010 to discuss how the IRS could assist in the criminal enforcement of campaign-finance laws against politically active nonprofits. This meeting was arranged at the direction of Public Integrity Section Chief Jack Smith,” the Committee stated.

According to the Republican National Lawyers Association, “Public Integrity Section Chief Jack Smith told investigators that officials at the Justice Department discussed targeting conservative nonprofit groups with Lerner as early as October 2010.”

A year later, Smith became a Wasserstein Fellow.

Despite all this, Smith flew under the radar. While Lois Lerner was denounced, Smith remained virtually as anonymous as his name, including his actual name, John Smith, but Smith was just doing his job. Not on our behalf, but for those who had put him in his role.

Smith had been handpicked to run the DOJ’s public integrity section by Lanny Breuer.

Breuer, Bill Clinton’s Special Counsel who defended him during his impeachment hearings, and then Sandy Berger, after he stole classified documents from the National Archives to cover up Clinton’s actions, had been brought in by Obama to head up DOJ’s criminal division.

The Clinton consigliere, widely disliked, distrusted, and hated even by fellow Democrats and lefties over his connections and client list, a man whom no one in D.C. believed had an ounce of integrity, then brought in Jack Smith to do some of his dirty work.

Would Lanny Breuer have picked anyone with integrity to head public integrity?

New York Times review of some of Breuer and Smith’s cases appears to focus almost entirely on Republicans, touching on names like Sen. John Ensign, Rep Tom DeLay, Rep. Jerry Lewis, and Rep. Don Young, while mentioning the convictions of Rep. Rick Renzi and Gov. Bob McDonnell: respectively pardoned and overturned.

Public integrity under Obama meant targeting Republicans. It still does under Biden. Much as it did under the Clintons. Three corrupt administrations united by their abuses of the DOJ.

When a new day seemed to be dawning after Trump’s victory, Jack Smith made a timely exit from the government and became the head of litigation for the Hospital Corporation of America.

The Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) had become stocked with Obama administration veterans a few years earlier.

Marilyn Tavenner, almost as much of a staple of Obama scandals as Lois Lerner, who had headed the disastrous Obamacare rollout and tried to explain why the website wasn’t working, had come out of HCA. Nancy-Ann DeParle, the architect of Obamacare, became an HCA director.

Their real purpose of the HCA-Obamacare connection wasn’t to implement things on the consumer side but to help broker a dirty deal that brought HCA on board with Obamacare. When King v. Burwell was poised to take on Obamacare, the HCA filed a brief on behalf of the illegal program to defend the exchanges as part of the dirty deal that it had made with the Obama administration.

Even as future Senator Rick Scott, the ousted former CEO of HCA, campaigned against Obamacare, warning, “If we have more government involvement we’re going to have dramatically worse health care”, Biden boasted of the HCA joining a deal to “cut costs” to make Obamacare work.

With that kind of history, Jack Smith going to work for HCA made a lot of sense.

To ordinary people, Smith’s career, at the DOJ, war crimes prosecutor in Yugoslavia, and as the head of litigation for a hospital chain seem interestingly random. They do have one thing in common.

These were all priority projects of the Clintons.

Hillary Clinton had been obsessed with a government takeover of healthcare long before Obama. The disastrous intervention in Yugoslavia was a Clinton project. And the Clintons had been fixated on seizing control of the DOJ and punishing their political enemies.

That is what the DOJ began to do from Hillary’s abuse of FBI files to Russiagate.

Even Smith’s role as a Wasserstein Fellow has a familiar ring to it.

Bruce Wasserstein had a history with the Clintons. When Rahm Emanuel left the Clinton White House, he got a job running Wasserstein’s office in Chicago. And before long, the Clinton adviser and future Obama Chief of Staff and Mayor of Chicago had made $16 million.

Wasserstein did more than just host fundraising events for Bill Clinton, alongside Alec Baldwin, not to mention donating to Hillary Clinton, Gore, Schumer, and so many other Democrats. (Although he was also briefly Mitch McConnell’s brother-in-law.) On his passing, the corporate raider was praised for his “passion for social justice”. He never saw Hillary Clinton rise and fall.

It may be a coincidence, but Smith’s resume is what one might expect of a federal careerist with Clinton connections. Even his extended European vacation was the sort of thing that Clintonites used to build up their resumes. That resume became outdated in the Obama era, but Smith still seemed able to hit a lot of the right notes.

Smith was even named one of the “International Gender Champions” and claimed that he was “strongly committed to working with my Office to ensure that gender equality, as part of diversity and inclusion, is a key consideration to everything we do.”

There is one curious final note as to how Smith was picked as the Specialist Prosecutor for the Yugoslavia war crimes trials in the Hague. Smith was chosen in 2018 “after a selection process organized by the European Union” and was “appointed by the European Union Rule of Law Mission in Kosovo mission head, Alexandra Papadopoulou”. In 2020, Papadopoulou, a Fulbright Scholar, became Greece’s ambassador to the Biden administration.

Washington D.C. may appear small compared to some other major cities, but it’s a vast hive of careerists, contractors, consultants, lobbyists, and activists all scurrying around the stone and glass buildings, the eateries, and shops, whose relationships to each other are as entangled as they are hostile to us. As George Carlin once said, “it’s a big club and you ain’t in it.”

Jack Smith is a lifetime member of the club. And now he’s been given the biggest job of his career. It’s not one that is likely to reap much in the way of immediate rewards. Just ask Bob Swan Mueller III, but it’s an act of public service to the political network that runs D.C.

And parts beyond, into the European Union, which helped contribute to Russiagate.

Since Smith’s leg was broken after a bicycle accident (a hazard in the Biden administration), he’ll be running the investigation of Trump from Europe. And no one finds it odd that an investigation of a former president will operate from the capital of the European Union.

But it’s not like we run our own country anyway.

The upper echelons of the administrative state are a network of political alliances by ambitious men and women looking for the next rung to power. They don’t work for us. Instead, they serve their sponsors and use political connections to navigate the public-private career ladder.

The media is already building up Smith’s mythos. “A  Justice Department lawyer out of central casting,” the New York Times gushed, with a “grizzled mien”. And, “an idealist and a brilliant independent thinker and a gutsy lawyer”. Central casting always needs good actors to play the part and fool the people long enough for the next phase of the plan to kick into action.

And, at least unlike Bob Mueller and Joe Biden, Jack Smith probably knows where he is. And he knows who really runs things and whom he needs to serve to get that next big job.

HOLIER THAN THOW CATHOLIC, POPE’S PUPPET Mike Pence Hits Donald Trump’s ‘Reckless’ Jan. 6 Rhetoric


Mike Pence opens up with David Muir on Jan. 6, 2021 U.S. Capitol "Attack":

Pence Claims Trump’s Words on Jan. 6 ‘Endangered Me and My Family’



Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

When did Mike Pence morph into Mitt Romney? The formerly sane vice president has now joined the likes of Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger in banging the tattered Jan. 6 “insurrection” drum, trying to stoke hatred of Donald Trump and provoke legal action against him over this supposed effort to destroy “our democracy” that lacked a leader, advance planning, weapons, and everything else you might expect an attempt to overthrow the government to have.

Pence is making the media rounds promoting his new memoir, So Help Me God, which is sure to release a megaton of pious posturing and hypocrisy into the atmosphere; on Sunday, ABC’s World News Tonight released portions of an interview, showing that Pence is going all-in on echoing talking points that Leftists use with increasing frequency to silence and discredit patriots.

Pence told ABC’s David Muir that Donald Trump engaged in “reckless” rhetoric on that fateful day and he “endangered me and my family and everyone at the Capitol.” This came when Muir “referenced the former president’s tweet as violent protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, accusing Pence of not having the ‘courage to do what he should have done’ with regard to certifying President Joe Biden’s electoral victory in Congress in his capacity as president of the Senate.”

Pence told Muir: “It angered me, but I turned to my daughter, who was standing nearby, and I said, ‘It doesn’t take courage to break the law, it takes courage to uphold the law.’ The president’s words were reckless. It was clear he decided to be part of the problem. The president’s words that day at the rally endangered me and my family and everyone at the Capitol building.” This was just feeding the Jan. 6 mythology of a mob of violent, crazed MAGA protestors, stirred into a frenzy by Trump, storming the Capitol. Like the Jan. 6 Committee, Pence ignores the fact that Trump told protestors to proceed “peacefully and patriotically.”

Even worse, Pence takes Trump’s critical statement, that he lacked the “courage to do what he should have done,” as incitement to violence, endangering him and his family. This is an extremely common Leftist talking point: a patriot says something critical about a Leftist, no matter how mild, and then the Leftist claims that he or she has been inundated with death threats as a result. This is both a deflection from the fact that the Left is responsible for the overwhelming majority of the political violence in this country and an attempt to reinforce the Biden regime’s false narrative that “white supremacists” and “right-wing extremists” constitute the greatest terror threat the nation faces today.

For Pence to aid and abet the propagation of the myth that conservative speech equals violence is the height of irresponsibility. The Left’s long-term goal in propagating this myth is to silence dissent altogether, which would include silencing Mike Pence as well, unless he continues on his present trajectory and comes out as transgender or something tomorrow, publishing a new memoir called So Help Me Gaia.

If Mike Pence was in danger on Jan. 6 and there were angry protestors shouting “Hang Mike Pence,” he wasn’t in danger because Trump had tweeted that he lacked courage. Pence is also echoing discredited witness Cassidy Hutchinson’s claim that Trump said Pence “deserved” the chants, which Trump heatedly denied saying. The Jan. 6 stitch-up is an elaborate exercise in trying to fabricate an act of treason and pin it on Trump. It should be beneath Mike Pence to go along with the charade.

But of course, Pence made his choice long ago; he said on Jan. 4, 2021: “I promise you, come this Wednesday, we’ll have our day in Congress. We’ll hear the objections. We’ll hear the evidence.” Yet just two days later, without explanation, he was singing a very different tune. And now this. The establishment media is delighted and is, of course, giving Pence’s statements big play, but they’re unlikely to convince anyone who hasn’t already fallen for their Jan. 6 melodrama.

What Pence himself is getting out of all this is unclear. Maybe he thinks he can become the Romney/Cheney Republicans’ choice for president in 2024. Given how the 2022 elections went, he could conceivably play that game all the way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. But it’s much more likely that he, like so many other Republicans, would just be cast to play the Washington Generals facing the Democrats’ Harlem Globetrotters.

Trump launches unhinged attacks on GOP governors DeSantis and Youngkin, gets major pushback

(Natural News) While Donald Trump’s policies during his presidency were exemplary and led to a massive resurgence of the U.S. economy and innovation, as well as personal income growth, the man very often demonstrates that he doesn’t know how to get out of his own way by picking stupid, needless fights with adversaries and allies alike.

Ahead of this week’s midterm elections, in which Republicans underperformed and dismally will not usher in a “red wave” as expected — despite the fact that Joe Biden’s been a train wreck and the Democratic Congress’ spending has led to record inflation — Trump said that he would be announcing his 2024 presidential plans around Nov. 14 during an event at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

Since the midterms, and because vital races like the Georgia Senate contest between Trump-backed Hershel Walker and Dem incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock will be going to a runoff election after neither candidate received at least 50 percent of the vote, the former president is being advised to hold off on his announcement so he doesn’t distract from the runoff which will take place next month.

In the meantime, he has inexplicably begun sniping at some of his political allies, including GOP Govs. Ron DeSantis in Florida, who just won reelection by an astounding margin, and Glenn Younkin of Virginia, who won his race last year in a purple state by standing up for parents against woke sexualization of young children in public schools.

Trump began his diatribe against DeSantis with a long run-on sentence that contained a juvenile nickname for the extremely popular governor: “NewsCorp, which is Fox, the Wall Street Journal, and the no longer great New York Post (bring back Col!), is all in for Governor Ron DeSanctimonious, an average REPUBLICAN Governor with great Public Relations, who didn’t have to close up his State, but did, unlike other Republican Governors, whose overall numbers for a Republican, were just average—middle of the pack—including COVID, and who has the advantage of SUNSHINE, where people from badly run States up North would go no matter who the Governor was, just like I did!”

DeSantis, who won by 20 points against his Dem challenger, is anything but “average.”

Trump then claimed that DeSantis, a former U.S. lawmaker, was “desperate” in 2017 and that he “had low approval, bad polls, and no money, but he said that if I would Endorse him, he could win.”

“I also fixed his campaign, which had completely fallen apart,” Trump went on before making an incredible claim. “I was all in for Ron, and he beat Gillum, but after the Race, when votes were being stolen by the corrupt Election process in Broward County, and Ron was going down ten thousand votes a day, along with now-Senator Rick Scott, I sent in the FBI and the U.S. Attorneys, and the ballot theft immediately ended, just prior to them running out of the votes necessary to win. I stopped his Election from being stolen…”

“And now, Ron DeSanctimonious is playing games!” Trump concluded in his attack on DeSantis. “The Fake News asks him if he’s going to run if President Trump runs, and he says, ‘I’m only focused on the Governor’s race, I’m not looking into the future.’ Well, in terms of loyalty and class, that’s really not the right answer.”

Trump then turned his attention to Youngkin a day later.

“Young Kin (now that’s an interesting take. Sounds Chinese, doesn’t it?) in Virginia couldn’t have won without me,” Trump wrote on Truth Social. “I Endorsed him, did a very big Trump Rally for him telephonically, got MAGA to Vote for him – or he couldn’t have come close to winning. But he knows that and admits it. Besides, having a hard time with the Dems in Virginia – But he’ll get it done!” he wrote on his Truth Social platform.

Trump Unloads on DeSantis AGAIN

Donald Trump brings Apostate Heretic Kenneth Copeland on stage and ends up with a surprise

Wolf Kenneth Copeland!

Former President Trump unloaded on Florida Governor DeSantis today in an email to supporters. Here’s the email in its entirety. Read it for yourself, and then I have a few questions.

NewsCorp, which is Fox, the Wall Street Journal, and the no longer great New York Post (bring back Col!), is all in for Governor Ron DeSanctimonious, an average REPUBLICAN Governor with great Public Relations, who didn’t have to close up his State, but did, unlike other Republican Governors, whose overall numbers for a Republican, were just average—middle of the pack—including COVID, and who has the advantage of SUNSHINE, where people from badly run States up North would go no matter who the Governor was, just like I did!

Ron came to me in desperate shape in 2017—he was politically dead, losing in a landslide to a very good Agriculture Commissioner, Adam Putnam, who was loaded up with cash and great poll numbers. Ron had low approval, bad polls, and no money, but he said that if I would Endorse him, he could win. I didn’t know Adam so I said, “Let’s give it a shot, Ron.” When I Endorsed him, it was as though, to use a bad term, a nuclear weapon went off. Years later, they were the exact words that Adam Putnam used in describing Ron’s Endorsement. He said, “I went from having it made, with no competition, to immediately getting absolutely clobbered after your Endorsement.” I then got Ron by the “Star” of the Democrat Party, Andrew Gillum (who was later revealed to be a “Crack Head”), by having two massive Rallies with tens of thousands of people at each one. I also fixed his campaign, which had completely fallen apart. I was all in for Ron, and he beat Gillum, but after the Race, when votes were being stolen by the corrupt Election process in Broward County, and Ron was going down ten thousand votes a day, along with now-Senator Rick Scott, I sent in the FBI and the U.S. Attorneys, and the ballot theft immediately ended, just prior to them running out of the votes necessary to win. I stopped his Election from being stolen…

And now, Ron DeSanctimonious is playing games! The Fake News asks him if he’s going to run if President Trump runs, and he says, “I’m only focused on the Governor’s race, I’m not looking into the future.” Well, in terms of loyalty and class, that’s really not the right answer.

This is just like 2015 and 2016, a Media Assault (Collusion!), when Fox News fought me to the end until I won, and then they couldn’t have been nicer or more supportive. The Wall Street Journal loved Low Energy Jeb Bush, and a succession of other people as they rapidly disappeared from sight, finally falling in line with me after I easily knocked them out, one by one. We’re in exactly the same position now. They will keep coming after us, MAGA, but ultimately, we will win. Put America First and, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

So there it is. Trump, who said he voted for DeSantis in Florida’s gubernatorial election on Tuesday, attacked DeSantis for the third time in a week. The first was a few days before the election at a rally for Marco Rubio. “Let’s see, there it is,” Trump said, pointing to a screen with some poll numbers displayed. “Trump at 71. Ron DeSanctimonious at 10 percent. Mike Pence at 7 — oh, Mike’s doing better than I thought.”

Related: Did Trump Just Go Too Far by Threatening DeSantis Not To Run Against Him?

Then, on his private plane heading home from a rally in Ohio, Trump threatened DeSantis: “If he runs, he runs,” Trump said. “If he did run, I will tell you things about him that won’t be very flattering. I know more about him than anybody other than perhaps his wife, who is really running his campaign.”

Thus far, DeSantis has not responded to any of the attacks and has been cagey when asked whether he plans to run for president in 2024. My colleague Spencer Brown at Townhall has a rundown of conservatives who were not happy with Trump’s attacks here if you care to read them.

Exit questions: Does this help or hurt Trump? Does it help or hurt DeSantis? Does it make you less likely to support one or the other? Should DeSantis credit Trump for his success? Are the attacks on DeSantis’s COVID-19 policies fair? Should DeSantis respond in kind or continue to lie low? Is Trump the only person who can carry the America First mantle?

Trump Wrongly Blamed for Sup-Par GOP Performance



Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

The Republicans had a pretty good midterm election despite what pundits are claiming. The GOP must win three of the remaining four Senate races to win control of the upper chamber — a goal well within reach as Republicans lead in Nevada and Wisconsin. And the party is within spitting distance of a House majority.

But no red wave. A combination of better-than-expected Democratic enthusiasm and underperforming Republican candidates squandered several opportunities to flip House seats and give the GOP a sizable House majority in January.

How did this happen? If you ask most of the media, the fault for the underperforming Republican Party rests with Donald Trump.

Former Obama campaign strategist David Plouffe said, “I think you have to say Donald Trump has now presided over two disastrous midterm elections.” That’s a matter of opinion. First, Trump did not “preside” over the 2022 midterms. Plouffe is getting his talking points mixed up with reality. Trump wasn’t on the ballot no matter how hard Democrats wished it were so.

Secondly, 2018 wasn’t much of a “disaster,” given that Republicans gained two Senate seats. They lost the House — just as Democrats will almost certainly lose the House in 2022.

“Given the history of presidents in power, Democrats controlling all of Washington, inflation, this should’ve been a much stronger night for Republicans,” Plouffe said. “A bunch of reasons for that. But at the top of them is Donald Trump. He’s deeply unpopular, he supported a bunch of horrible Senate candidates who may end up coughing up the football here.”

For our VIPs: The 2022 Midterms and What They Tell Us About the Future of the GOP

The fact that Trump is “unpopular” outside the Republican Party was pointed out by several pundits. This is “analysis”? Trump entered office in 2017 and his favorable numbers were almost immediately underwater. He’s never been “popular” in the media sense of the word and saying so is belaboring the obvious.

And as far as those “horrible” Senate candidates, some are winning and some are losing. That brings us to the most salient point about Trump and the Republican Party: Donald Trump was a boon to candidates in districts and regions where he was popular and he was a drag in districts and regions where he wasn’t popular.

Another popular media game last night was putting the performance of Trump-backed candidates side by side with the performance of Ron DeSantis.

Fox News:

On CNN, conservative commentator Scott Jennings offered a rather blunt analysis of the night, juxtaposing the performance of Trump-backed candidates across the country with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, R., a potential 2024 contender who romped to a landslide re-election on Tuesday.

“There’s a potential narrative out of this night that if you’re a discerning Republican voter trying to figure out the future, direction of this party, we once again learn that Trump is not a national winner for the Republicans,” the GOP pundit told the panel. “But DeSantis may be the next evolution of someone who can marry what you like about Trump but also recover some people that went away from the party during Trump.”

When it comes to Donald Trump, most strong supporters have an “accept no substitutes” policy. DeSantis has already gotten into some trouble with the MAGA world and they would be unwilling to transfer their allegiance to anyone else while Donald Trump remained a viable candidate.

It’s true that some of the candidates Trump handpicked to run — Mehmet Oz in particular — did not meet expectations. Why that’s Trump’s fault is a mystery. No one is talking about Trump guessing right about J.D. Vance in Ohio, who won by 150,000 votes. It’s the old “Get Trump” game dressed up as serious political commentary.

It still doesn’t work.
