Before getting to the latest developments regarding the worries of the mid-tier donor class within the republican apparatus, I want to provide some context for the overall Ron DeSantis (RdS) management agenda.
I can trace the origin of the RdS 2024 scheme to an originating timeframe in late fall 2021. It may go back further than that, but it is at least in place by the late fall of 2021. That means that everything within the professional republican apparatus, those who manipulate the political events from the controlling wing of the republican side of the UniParty, had RdS ’24 as the agenda throughout the 2022 midterm calendar.
With that context, the events around the 2022 midterms and the surprising lack of professional republican gains in the midterm election, start to take on an entirely new Machiavellian light. Not necessarily the RNC corporation; rather, the subsidiary weaponized groups including the Republican Governors Association and the Senate reelection schemes spearheaded by Mitch McConnell et al. In hindsight, those were all done with the context of laying the groundwork for ’22 MAGA defeat and ’24 RdS rise as an outcome.
Throughout the first half of 2022 I was saying there’s no way the GOPe wing would be this stupid. This was based primarily by my own filter saying there had to be a limit to what they think they can pull off.
The Wall St, K-Street, multinational and billionaire funding into RdS during the spring of 2022 was massive, but I held a primary prism that RdS himself had to be smart enough to know it was a suicide mission. However, with the events that unfolded in July and August of 2022, it became obvious that RdS was going all-in on a management program for a 2024 bid.
Perhaps taken in by the intoxicating alure of money, perhaps it didn’t take much convincing, I don’t know. But it was clear the ’24 race was the pretext for everything happening in/around the RdS orbit, including the 5-days in the bunker after the Mar-a-Lago raid and the rebranding national image launch thereafter.
We all know the GOPe operational motive for removing MAGA from the base of influence; it no longer needs to be repeated. Quite simply the America-First agenda puts *their* money at stake, and collectively that amounts to trillions of dollars in multinational globalist financial control. The scale of the money behind the MAGA opposition is really the biggest challenge, it is almost unfathomable, and that scale is represented within the size of the war chest they assembled for RdS.
The top of this financial pyramid holds a grip on political power that is threatened by the worldview, outlook and economic nationalist policy of Donald Trump. Underneath that top-tier there are many layers of vested interests also at risk. Remember, ultimately despite the power dynamic, they are few – the MAGA army is many. It is within these mid-tier donor groups we now see worry about whether RdS can fulfill his assignment as protector of the realm.

Can you say choked under the national spotlight! Ron got out ahead of his skies, I have my doubts he can recover for 2028. But you never know.
Scott Walker redux. If he begins consulting with Rove, he’s done forever.
We have another year of unfolding history to pass before deciding a course of action.
Keep your eyes and ears open and be as discerning as possible with the sources you trust.
If Trump is unavailable for any reason, it is important not to have already crippled the next best alternative.
Just a posted notice to remind us all.
Dear FRiends, our 1st qtr FReepathon is running behind. It looks like we’re not going to hit our target, but with your help, maybe we can at least get it over 90%. 3/25/2023, 11:36:11 AM · by Jim Robinson
“I coulda been somebody, ya know?”
Debates haven’t even started yet.
You do make a good point. RdS might want to consider that as well and not alienate the MAGA base. Mealy mouthed equivocation on the Uke quagmire can do exactly that.
I hope I am wrong, but when DeSantis jumps in the race and mixes it up with Trump he will only hurt us because Trump will win the nomination. If DeSantis keeps a few points of his votes (which he probably will - he has some solid support) he will cripple Trump in the general election.
DeSantis will cripple his presidential aspirations permanently because there are a huge number of MAGA voters who will blame him for damage to Trump AND who will never vote for him.
DeSantis (I am somewhat favorable of him for a GOPe type) is either not as smart as people think or he is getting horrible advice from a GOPe class of donors looking for the “anyone other than Trump” guy. I suspect it is the latter.
Quite simply the America-First agenda puts *their* money at stake, and collectively that amounts to trillions of dollars in multinational globalist financial control.
*Their* meaning the GOPe. And they support RdS simply because he's "anyone but Trump".
Yes, he is getting horrible advice by going with the GOPe.
I thought that Ron would split the MAGA vote with Trump, by appealing to those voters who are pro-American, pro-middle class, don’t like to be told they are racists because their skin happens to be white (can you imagine that it would come to that), don’t like to be told they not only must accept people who are sexually different or attracted to their same sex, but must embrace it and relish their fetishes, people who don’t like America involved in every international dispute, people who don’t like union bosses, government health “experts” and elite university professors pushing them around.
Ron represented parents very well, and in a decidedly MAGA way, and sent illegals to liberal strongholds as a power move, and that meant he appealed to MAGA. But on everything else, he seems to be going to Linda Graham, Bill Kristol and Mitch McConnell. What the HELL, Ron???
As the author said:
Throughout the first half of 2022 I was saying there’s no way the GOPe wing would be this stupid.
The Stupid Party is GOPe. Always has been.
The GOPe is the same kind of stupid as the big-city democrats.
The GOPe does the bidding of their corporate masters and donors just like the democrats do the bidding of the far left nutjobs.
American politics are primarily governed by donors and bad ideas on both sides of the aisle.
We have the neocons and Chamber of Commerce and the left has the academic/media/big tech cabal along with the banksters.
This is why Trump is so popular with the base and why Bernie had such a following. They are “counter-culture” to the dominant “politics”.
It’s a shame, really.
The values of MAGA are just American values—the middle and working class—that ought to be what most politicians want to represent.
And yet the majority of Wash DC disdains them.
Why? And why have politicians gotten so much power while turning their nose up at them?
As I think back to my own viewpoint in early 2022, I have completely changed my opinion on Ron DeSantis as a smart politician. He is not as smart as I was giving him credit for. In fact, this entire RdS 2024 operation simply affirms they really are that stupid. Desperate and stupid.
DeSantis isn’t an alternative after flip-flopping on the Ukraine war.
Other than possibly Va., Trump did precisely that in ‘20. The big question is how much cheating will he have to overcome the next time, the same or more.
I’m a Trump only voter. Without Trump the republican party in Washington is worthless. If they somehow disqualify him or imprison him, I will not be voting. Hell, if that happens the country will become very unstable. 2024 elections won’t even matter.
Trump got 74,000,000 votes, a record for any, ANY sitting President, BY FAR. What we have to do is prevent election fraud.
