    Drivers in New Jersey have been greeted with roadway signs that read, "Suspect Terrorism? See Something, Say Something," with a tip line number to report threats. These signs are part of a public safety campaign launched last month by the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness (NJOHSP) in partnership with the state Department of Transportation and New Jersey Turnpike Authority. But their sudden appearance on major highways, with little notice or fanfare, has alarmed state residents. "This makes me think that there’s an underlying thing going on that’s not public yet," said Nanalapan resident Laura Brunetti in an...

    Miami Mayor Francis Suarez (R) announced Tuesday he’s suspending his campaign for the White House. “Running for President of the United States has been one of the greatest honors of my life,” Suarez said in a release announcing the move, adding, “It was a privilege to come so close to appearing on stage with the other candidates at last week’s first debate.” “While I have decided to suspend my campaign for President, my commitment to making this a better nation for every American remains,” Suarez added. The end of his short-lived presidential bid comes a week after he failed to...

    Longtime progressive champion Sen. Bernie Sanders returns to the New Hampshire on Saturday, a trip that’s sure to generate plenty of political buzz ahead of next year’s presidential primaries. Sanders will deliver a speech entitled “The Agenda America Needs” at Saint Anselm College’s New Hampshire Institute of Politics that a release from the populist independent senator highlighted will “lay out a concrete agenda which speaks to the needs of a long-neglected working class.” *** “The American people are increasingly disgusted at the growing levels of income and wealth inequality in our country and the rampant corporate greed we are seeing.”...
  • Biden campaign co-chair declares president 'Democratic nominee' before single vote cast

    The Biden-Harris campaign co-chair declared President Biden the "Democratic nominee" for president before a single vote has been cast. Former Biden aide Cedric Richmond on Wednesday said that Biden is not debating for his spot on top of the blue presidential ticket and is already the "Democratic nominee." "President Biden is the Democratic nominee, along with Vice President Harris," Richmond said. "And if you look at both parties, when they have an incumbent president, that incoming president participates in no debates and there's no primary on our side when there's a primary." "But the key to it is the fact...

    Nearly $12 million is missing in financial disclosures for a super political action committee for President Joe Biden, prompting calls for an investigation. Future Forward said that it received $3.4 million from its associated nonprofit, Future Forward USA Action. But Future Forward USA Action said in tax documents that it passed $15.3 million to Future Forward. Chauncey McLean, who worked on former President Barack Obama's presidential campaigns, leads both Future Forward and its nonprofit. Future Forward did not respond to requests for comment.
  • Vivek Ramaswamy shares 10 commandments of 2024 campaign, starts with 'God is real,' 'There are two genders'

    Presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy shared a list of what he called 10 truths to social media Thursday, with references to faith, gender, and capitalism. Ramaswamy, a biotech entrepreneur who is seeking the Republican nomination, shared the ideals on X, starting with, "God is real" and "There are only two genders" — the latter being a contentious claim by those on the Left. The list also promotes the importance of fossil fuels, condemns "reverse racism," defends the role of parents in choosing their own children's education, and boasts the U.S. Constitution as the "strongest guarantor of freedoms in history." While many...

    A Trump-critical Republican non-profit launched an campaign Tuesday calling on GOP lawmakers to mantain support for Ukraine amid growing resistance to additional aid packages from key factions of the party. “Republicans for Ukraine,” launched Tuesday by the non-profit Defending Democracy Together, is a $2-million campaign with first-person testimonials from GOP voters urging politicians and lawmakers to support Ukraine. The ads will run on cable, network TV, and on YouTube through the end of the year. Defending Democracy Together describes itself as an “advocacy organization created by lifelong conservatives and Republicans.” The group has spoken out against former President Trump and...

    Townhall ^ | August 14, 2023 | Kurt Schlichter
    Of course, Ron DeSantis can come back and win. Anybody in the race can win – we saw Trump come back in 2016 when most everyone wrote him off in the general. Now it’s the Florida governor’s turn to be written off, but he’s not exactly in the same place that Trump was. DeSantis is a strong second right now. For him, it’s not a matter of a miracle happening, threading a bunch of needles to win the general when rational betters would bet against you like in 2016. No, Ron DeSantis has a plan, and there’s a method to...

    Founder of Republican Voters Against Trump Sarah Longwell said Sunday on CNN’s “Inside Politics” that 2024 hopeful Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) was not even being mentioned by Republican voters as someone they want to win the presidential nomination. Longwell said, “I have to tell you, he has been getting killed in the focus groups, and it’s not even that kind of criticism. We always ask people who do you want to see be the 2024 nominee. And six months ago, Ron DeSantis, he would always come up. He was the first one. If it wasn’t Trump, it was him. People...

    Donald Trump made a grand entrance at Iowa State Fair on Saturday - overshadowing Ron DeSantis and other contenders for the Republican presidential nomination who were trying to counter the power of the former president. Meanwhile, the former president arrived in the grandeur that only Trump can bring. Trump Force One flew low over the fairgrounds for the crowd to see. Secret Service wanded a long line of people waiting to get into Steers & Steins to see the former president. Mobs followed him throughout the fairgrounds, shouting his name. Trump spent only about an hour on the ground in...

    'The more a party makes inflammatory statements about this case … the greater the urgency will be that we proceed to trial quickly.’ U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan warned Donald Trump and his attorney Friday that repeated “inflammatory” statements about his latest criminal prosecution would force her to speed his trial on charges related to his bid to subvert the 2020 election. “I caution you and your client to take special care in your public statements about this case,” Chutkan told Trump lawyer John Lauro during a hearing. “I will take whatever measures are necessary to safeguard the integrity of...

    It seemed everything that could have gone wrong for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Saturday did. The governor has spent the past two days coddling and cozying up to every Iowa voter and state legislator possible. The return on investment? Being drowned out by his biggest adversaries: progressives and Trump loyalists. On Saturday afternoon, while DeSantis joined Reynolds and Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst at a grill to flip pork chops, Trump supporters surrounded the venue and chanted, “We love Trump!” Moments later, Trump’s plane flew overhead, seeming to taunt DeSantis as fairgoers craned to get a look. Trump’s visit to...

    If it hadn’t been for a fender bender on Interstate 75 near Chattanooga, Tennessee, Tuesday morning, most folks wouldn’t know that Gov. Ron DeSantis was using state government vehicles for his 2024 run for president. But finding out who’s paying for it is nearly impossible thanks to a new law passed by the Legislature to protect the governor’s travel records from public view. “The legislature has enabled him to hide his travel records so we don’t know and have no way to hold him accountable if he is using state resources in his campaign or if that is even the...

    Ron DeSantis scrapped two Hamptons fundraisers last weekend due to a lack of interest As On The Money previously reported, DeSantis had cut in half — from $6,600 per person to $3,300 — the price to attend the July 20 fundraiser in Southampton. One source blamed Chele Farley, a failed congressional candidate, who promoted herself as the point person behind DeSantis’ cocktail reception.“She cheapened the event by sending it out to everyone on her email list … she scared people away,” Worse yet, the campaign canceled plans for two other events because “they couldn’t find hosts,” a source with knowledge...

    MIKE CERNOVICH: [DeSantis] is maybe the first candidate that became less popular when he ran for office. There was a lot of enthusiasm from people, myself included, with the DeSantis campaign, because we wanted a competitive primary. We wanted a primary, not a coronation. If you're me, or other people, you're probably pretty frustrated because you see a lot of denial from DeSantis supporters. You see a lot of frustration from them, a lot of rage.

    Another Republican presidential candidate has qualified for the upcoming Republican primary debate, but chances are, you have never heard of him until now. North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum has qualified for the debate by securing the required number of individual donors and polling at one percent in a national poll.Burgum accomplished this feat by employing some rather unorthodox tactics: His campaign offered donors $20 gift cards for $1 donations, which raised questions about its legality. Burgum’s low-profile bid faces tough competition from more well-known candidates in the 2024 presidential race, but now, he will have an opportunity to make a...

    DeSantis, long considered former President Donald Trump's chief rival in the GOP's 2024 primary contest, has cut a third of his campaign staff — or 38 people, according to campaign aides who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal campaign strategy. "Following a top-to-bottom review of our organization, we have taken additional, aggressive steps to streamline operations and put Ron DeSantis in the strongest position to win this primary and defeat Joe Biden," DeSantis campaign manager Generra Peck said in a statement. "DeSantis is going to lead the Great American Comeback and we're ready to hit the ground...
