    In his first interview since dropping out of the presidential race, DeSantis told Blaze TV’s Steve Deace that the blame is on Iowa caucusgoers who rallied behind front-runner Donald Trump even though many didn’t like him. “They did not want to see Trump nominated again, but they had basically been told that it was inevitable, that it was over,” DeSantis told Deace on Tuesday. DeSantis, who lost to Trump in the Iowa caucuses earlier this month, added that those voters were “checked out” and had “just totally dropped out of the process.” The Florida governor told Deace he’d consider running...

    WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida lashed out at the media Monday after networks declared former President Donald Trump the winner before some caucus sites had started voting. “It is absolutely outrageous that the media would participate in election interference by calling the race before tens of thousands of Iowans even had a chance to vote,” said DeSantis spokesman Andrew Romeo. “The media is in the tank for Trump and this is the most egregious example yet.”The news broke at a caucus site here right around the same time a surrogate for Mr. DeSantis had taken...

    Ron DeSantis asked Fox News host Sean Hannity on Wednesday to arrange a head-to-head debate that would allow the Florida governor to take on former President Trump. “Well, Sean, I don’t think we’ve spoken since that debate, and the reaction that I’ve gotten has been incredible in terms of obviously being able to show that freedom works, and the California model’s a failure, what that means for the country,” DeSantis said. DeSantis praised Hannity’s moderating skills and suggested he hold additional debates with either of his top competitors in the presidential primary

    President Biden called into the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday, calling on Americans to “come together” and put unity above politics over the holiday weekend — and beyond. “On this Thanksgiving, Al, we have to come together,” the president told NBC’s Al Roker. “We can have different political views, but we have one view. The one view is that we’re the finest, greatest nation in the world. We should focus on that.” …

    CNN contributor Adam Kinzinger said Friday on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” that it was “outrageous” Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) does not plan to join President Joe Biden when the president tours Hurricane Idalia’s devastation. Host John Berman said, “I want to shift gears to what we started this block on, which was this confusion over whether President Biden will meet with Governor Ron DeSantis when Biden goes down to Florida to view the hurricane damage tomorrow. Do you think the DeSantis team is worried about the logistics of it, as they said in a statement, or is it more about...

    Former President Trump is again knocking Fox News for its coverage of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, his leading rival for the GOP nomination for president. “FoxNews just covered, from beginning to end, the Ron DeSanctimonious very boring news conference at the Border, but didn’t cover one minute of my two big speeches on Saturday and Sunday night, one for Faith & Freedom in D.C., the other about trade in Michigan, where I was presented with the ‘Man of the Decade’ Award,” Trump wrote on his Truth Social website. “The DeSanctus speech was just a rehash of all the things I...

    Republican presidential candidate and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said this week that former President Trump’s taunts regarding his last name are “petty” and “juvenile.” “I think it’s so petty. I think it’s so juvenile. I don’t think that’s what voters want,” DeSantis told Jack Heath on “The Pulse of New Hampshire.” Trump recently mocked DeSantis for the pronunciation of his last name and referred to the Florida governor as “Ron DeSanctimonious,” a nickname the former president frequently uses. DeSantis told Heath that Trump’s behavior is one of the reasons why he lost the 2020 presidential election.

Ron DeSantis (R-FL) ahead of his presidential campaign launch on Wednesday, asserting he would be doomed to fail in the general election after voting to overhaul entitlement programs when he was a congressman. Trump, the leading Republican presidential candidate, took to Truth Social to hit DeSantis’s support of legislation that took aim at Social Security and Medicare during his time in Congress :

    President Donald Trump took his attacks on Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to a new level Wednesday, as a super PAC linked to the 76-year-old accused his would-be rival of ethics violations tied to what it calls DeSantis’ “shadow presidential campaign.” A draft of the 15-page letter by Make America Great Again Inc. calls on the Florida Commission on Ethics to investigate DeSantis, alleging that the 44-year-old has violated a slew of state statutes as well as federal campaign finance laws. The complaint refers to DeSantis as a “de facto candidate for president” and claims that ​the governor is “leveraging his...
  • 1554: Henry Grey, Duke of Suffolk

    02/23/2023 1:24:55 PM PST · by CheshireTheCat · 1 replies ^ | February 23, 2018 | Headsman
    On this date in 1554, Tudor nobleman Henry Grey — who for nine days had been the father of the queen — was beheaded at Queen Mary’s command. He was one of the inveterate schemers who grappled to secure his family’s foot upon the throne during the uncertain years when Edward VI succeeded Henry VIII. Frail and underaged, Edward’s foreseeable early death without issue created a situation where the cream of the aristocracy could plausibly dream themselves the namesakes of the next great English dynasty. Heck, the late royal monster was himself just the son of the guy who had...

    Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker (R) does not plan to endorse the state’s GOP gubernatorial nominee, who is backed by former President Trump, according to a spokesperson. “The Governor and Lt. Governor [Karyn Polito (R)] said months ago they don’t plan to get involved in the gubernatorial election so they can focus solely on finishing strong,” Baker spokesman Jim Conroy confirmed to The Hill. “That’s still the case.” Former state Rep. Geoff Diehl, who had the endorsement of former President Trump, was projected on Tuesday night to win the Republican primary in the Massachusetts governor’s race, beating out moderate businessman Chris...

    Former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) said he was “sobbing” as he watched the Jan 6, 2021 attack at the Capitol happen, according to a new book. In Atlantic journalist’s Mark Leibovich’s new book, “Thank You For Your Servitude,” Ryan said he felt “disturbed” about what was taking place in a building in which he spend most of his political life, according to CNN. Ryan, who was Sen. Mitt Romney’s (R-Utah) running mate in the 2012 presidential election, retired from his position as House Speaker in January 2019. He stepped into the role following former House Speaker John Boehner’s (R-Ohio)...

    Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich said he went behind a building and cried after losing the 2016 GOP presidential primary to former President Donald Trump. Kasich made the embarrassing admission on Thursday’s episode of the “​​Kasich & Klepper” podcast. The former governor said that he had stayed in the race until the bitter end because he believed people “were gonna come to their senses.” “Well, you know, I was [in the presidential race] til the bitter end. When it was over — I haven’t ever told anyone this — I was on a plane and we were going to do...

    Rep. Adam Kinzinger in a recent interview said that he considered using his gun during the January 6 insurrection at the US Capitol, expressing that he was "prepared to defend" himself against his own party. While talking with Rolling Stone, the Illinois Republican spoke of the "real sense of evil" he felt that day, and even before the insurrection occurred, he felt as though violence, fueled by then-President Donald Trump's unsubstantiated claims of a stolen election, was imminent.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), whom the former head of the DNC once anointed as the future of the Democrat Party, faced widespread condemnation across the political spectrum on Friday after she attempted to explain why she voted “present” for a bill that would have provided Israel with funding for a missile defense system that protects them for Palestinian terrorist attacks. In a roughly 900-word statement, AOC explicitly stated that she wanted “to be clear” that she was “opposed to this bill.” After explaining over the course of several hundred words why she really opposed helping one of America’s top allies defend...

    He must have slept on it. Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg says he’s giving up his role in the pillow company he launched to compete with conservative MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell — and going back to activism. Hogg, 20, announced on Twitter Saturday “resigned and released all shares, any ownership and any control of Good Pillow LLC” effective immediately. “The reasons for my departure rests entirely with me and my own personal commitments and I truly wish (co-founder William LeGate) nothing but the best,” he wrote. “Over the next several months, I will be taking some time to focus on...

When you go through the images and I’ll put a couple up to look at, some people find them offensive. Stereotypical. Leo Terrell: I come from this as a public school teacher that read those books as a student, a young boy that read those books. As a civil rights attorney. The images reflect the time in which the books were written, in the 20s and the 30s. I am not offended by those pictures because it talks about the evolution of...

    ABC’s left-wing late-night host Jimmy Kimmel trashed Vice President Mike Pence over his decision to receive the Pfizer vaccine for the coronavirus, arguing that Pence’s past skepticism over a second wave makes him unworthy of receiving the vaccine. “Speaking of cold, white stuff, Mike Pence is expected to get his first of two Pfizer shots tomorrow,” Jimmy Kimmel said his opening monologue on Thursday, tasing aim at Pence and his wife Karen’s decision to take the vaccine to prove it is safe. “I guess the thinking is, if it’s good enough for America’s First Karen, it should be good enough...

    There was an interesting moment on Monday as the hosts and guest on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” were discussing the coverage of the election. Willie Geist raised the possibility that President Trump could declare victory on election night before all the votes have been counted. Joe Scarborough responded that NBC would simply make a Twitter-like determination and not carry the speech. It would not be treated as obvious news but rather “disinformation” . . . regardless of what has transpired on election day. What is ironic is the Geist had just slammed Trump for making plans to send in lawyers “no...
