    Actor James Van Der Beek blasted the Democratic National Committee for planning on foregoing primary debates between President Joe Biden and other presidential contenders for 2024. "I mean, what the hell? How is this a democracy?" Van Der Beek said in a viral TikTok filmed on Memorial Day with over 49,500 likes. "I cannot get over the fact that the Democratic National Committee is saying there will not be a debate to decide the nominee for president. Are you f---ing kidding me? There’s no debate?" Van Der Beek said. "There’s no debate over an 80-year-old man who, if he lives,...

    ... A Once-in-a-Century FigureTrump vs DeSantis has long been billed as a battle between heavyweights. But is that putting too much expectation on the Florida governor?... The polls show the hill DeSantis has to climb.Right now, RealClearPolitics polling averages show Trump with a massive 37% lead over DeSantis, sitting at 56.3% support of GOP voters. DeSantis has dropped to 19.4%, Pence at 5.6%, Nikki Haley at 4.3%, Vivek Ramaswamy at 3.6% and Sen. Tim Scott at 1.8. (The poll period was from 4/21 to 5/18, before Scott’s announcement.)Which gets to our major point:DeSantis Has to Win the Not-Trump Position FirstDeSantis’s...

    Former President Donald Trump is the only Republican candidate who can beat President Joe Biden in the general election, according to a new poll. The former president is also dominating the GOP primary field, holding a decisive lead over his rivals for the Republican presidential nomination. A new Premise poll found that, when given a choice between Trump and Biden, 43% of Americans prefer Trump, versus the 38% who said they prefer Biden, with 18% unsure. In a general election race between Biden and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, 37% said they prefer Biden, compared to 33% who prefer DeSantis, and...
  • Rick Wilson: Trump Will Tear DeSantis's Head Off, 'Kick It Around Like a Soccer Ball'

    [snip] Wilson began by attacking DeSantis's personality, claiming that he "doesn't like humans, has to pretend to be human." He insisted DeSantis has a "mean streak." Yes, Rick Wilson said that, without any introspection about his own behavior.In contrast, despite being sure to get on record that he dislikes everything about Trump, Wilson argued Trump does have "charisma" and "energy." In a particularly gruesome metaphor, Wilson then predicted that in a debate, Trump would "tear Ron DeSantis's head off and kick it around like a soccer ball."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • Tucker Floats an Idea That Could Shake Up the GOP Primary Debates

    PJ Media ^ | 05/05/2023 | Robert Spencer
    We still don’t know for sure if Ron DeSantis is going to run. The rest of the field after Donald Trump is a bunch of weak controlled opposition Republicans including Mike Pence, Nikki Haley, John Bolton, and the immortal Asa Hutchinson. In light of all this, the Republican primary debates could end up being a major snoozefest. Tucker Carlson, however, has a tantalizingly different idea: he is considering hosting his own debate, outside of the Republic National Committee framework. Now that could liven things up considerably. The snag that Carlson is still an employee of Fox News remains, but the...

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said Wednesday that former President Trump is “afraid” to take the stage in Republican primary debates after Trump, who holds a commanding lead in the GOP polls, floated skipping the events. Christie, a former Trump ally who has become one of his more vocal Republican critics, told conservative radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt that the GOP should hold “as many” debates as it can and should have an “open format” to allow for follow-up questions and prevent candidates from giving “soundbyte-y answers that nobody believes will solve any problems.”

    Former President Donald Trump is considering skipping at least some of the 2024 Republican primary debates, the New York Times reported, citing five people who have discussed the matter with Trump. Last month, Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel announced the first two debates of the GOP presidential primary season. First will be a Fox News-hosted debate in August in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, followed by a second debate in Southern California at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.

    ARLINGTON, Va. — Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley is billing herself as the person who can forge a national consensus on abortion, citing her experience creating a consensus around another highly contentious debate during her tenure as governor of South Carolina.Haley, who formerly served as governor of South Carolina and United States Ambassador to the United Nations during the Trump administration, gave a speech on abortion before a crowd of pro-life activists at the headquarters of Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America on Tuesday. In her speech, Haley expressed a desire to “start a constructive conversation about where we go from...

    I am dismayed that Donald Trump seems to be adopting the tactics of the Biden-dominated DNC and rejecting the opportunity for voters to hear directly from candidates for their parties’ nomination in a presidential debate. In a post on Truth Social, he writes:I see that everybody is talking about the Republican Debates, but nobody got my approval, or the approval of the Trump Campaign, before announcing them. When you’re leading by seemingly insurmountable numbers, and you have hostile Networks with angry, TRUMP & MAGA hating anchors asking the “questions,” why subject yourself to being libeled and abused? Also, the Second...

    Communists don’t need debates. Leaders are chosen. As noted in the first chapter of The Steal: Volume II – The Impossible Occurs – Joe Biden was lost during the 2020 campaign.…former Vice President Joe Biden was a disaster. He looked lost at times and was embarrassing during the Democrat debates. Early on, it was clear he wasn’t going to be able to take on President Trump. After a short time, it appeared that none of the Democrats running for office could take on President Trump.The Democrat debates were a total disaster because of the communist-leaning policies of the left that...

    MSNBC’s host Joe Scarborough said Thursday on his show “Morning Joe” that he believes Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) will “melt” if he goes up against former President Donald Trump at a Republican presidential primary debate. Scarborough said, “The more I see, the more I read, the more I talk to people, they don’t care. They don’t care that Donald Trump tried to overthrow American democracy. They don’t care he tried to throw out a presidential election. They don’t care that he wanted to terminate the Constitution of the United States. This Democrat is who you’re going to face.”

    Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) invited President Biden to debate over Social Security and Medicare on Thursday while the president is in Florida after days of the White House and the GOP sparring over whether the programs are at risk of facing funding cuts. “Since you can’t stop talking about me and lying to Floridians about Social Security and Medicare, I’m sure you’ll accept my invitation to debate the issue,” Scott wrote on Twitter. “I’ll be back in Florida tonight. You pick the time and place.”

    Last May, when Trump endorsed Oz for the Republican Senate nomination over David McCormick, many of the state's loyal conservatives balked. Dave Ball, the Washington County GOP chairman who flipped his county from blue to red in voter registration, said at the time, “What the hell was he thinking?” When Mastriano surged comfortably ahead in the polls for the GOP gubernatorial nomination in the weeks before the May primary, I reported extensively on the Republicans' fears that Mastriano would drag the party down, including its Senate nominee; within days of that story, Trump endorsed Mastriano.

Kate Constantini, Bolduc for Senate spokeswoman, told Breitbart News that before the General went on the debate stage, he was physically attacked outside the building by an individual in the crowd. It is not known if the individual is a Hassan supporter. Law enforcement was quickly on the scene and apprehended the individual. “Prior to the debate, an individual in the crowd gathered outside attempted to punch the General and was quickly apprehended and...

    Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer fancies herself the smartest woman in the room. In reality, she's a failed Democrat hack. Throughout COVID she locked down her state with an iron fist. Even as other states relaxed their restrictions Whitmer further tightened the screws on freedom and common sense. This week, as she debated Republican challenger Tudor Dixon, she ran from her own record of failure. Now, Mark picks apart Whitmer's bankrupt ideas and failed policies as Governor of Michigan. Will this debate finally turn the tide in Dixon's favor?
