    Musk made the comment in a tweet on Friday night. "Would you support Ron DeSantis in 2024, Elon?," a Twitter user asked. "Yes," Musk replied. Musk made the statement after conservative comedian Tim Young pointed out that Trump hasn't tweeted since his suspension was reversed. "I’m fine with Trump not tweeting. The important thing is that Twitter correct a grave mistake in banning his account, despite no violation of the law or terms of service. Deplatforming a sitting President undermined public trust in Twitter for half of America," Musk tweeted.

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) topped former President Trump in a new poll asking GOP voters who they trust to guide the party into the future. The ABC News/Ipsos poll, published on Sunday, found that 72 percent of registered Republicans believe that DeSantis, a former U.S. congressman, should have a great or good deal of influence in the future direction of the GOP, while 64 percent of respondents said the same of Trump.
  • Ron DeSantis: Florida's Political Messiah

    The Floridian ^ | September 12th 2022 | Javier Manjarres
    Outside of former President Donald Trump, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a devout Catholic, is arguably the greatest political threat to the legacy media and Democratic Party to come out of the Republican Party ranks and is seen as a political Messiah. Because Gov. DeSantis has come out swinging against the current “Woke” ideology that peddles racial division, gender-affirming surgeries on children, sexualizes children, and promotes a radical and militant propaganda machine aimed solely at demonizing anyone that pushed back against their ideological narratives, there is a great big fat target that has been placed on his back. Progressive Democrats hate...

    As golf balls, they're not all that big. Florida’s Governor has a pair. That’s the slogan emblazoned on new merchandise — golf balls — that debuted Wednesday as the Legislature made a decisive drive toward passing legislation Gov. Ron DeSantis called for to fortify Florida against those pesky federal vaccine mandates. “Hold the line,” says the box, under the line about the Governor having a pair. Even if the line isn’t specified on the new merchandise, there’s plenty of double entendre. Allusions to anatomy abound. “Standing firm and setting an example for the rest of the nation in defending freedom...

  • Joe Henderson: Turnout for Donald Trump’s Sarasota rally sends a clear message

    Florida Politics ^ | July 6th 2021 | Joe Henderson
    The turnout for Trump's "Save America" rally in soggy Sarasota should remind everyone the former President will leave the stage when he is good and ready. And he's not ready. The “Save America” rally for former (repeat, former) President Donald Trump Saturday in Sarasota sent an unmistakable warning to Florida Democrats and, maybe, Gov. Ron DeSantis, too. Trump’s true believers still believe, and there’s no room in their hearts and minds for anyone else. That’s true, even if it means siding with Trump against a Governor they really like. Why else would thousands sit through buckets of rain to hear...

    The Capitolist ^ | June 8th 2021 | Jordan Kirkland
    Rebekah Jones‘ Twitter suspension saga took a bizarre turn late Monday night after the embattled data designer announced that she’s running for Congressman Matt Gaetz‘s seat. Jones, a former Florida Department of Health (DOH) employee who was fired for repeatedly violating the agency’s policy about communicating with the media, made the out-of-left-field announcement on social media mere hours after she was suspended from Twitter for violating rules against “platform manipulation and spam.” Jones also placed the crosshairs on Governor Ron DeSantis, calling the Republican governor a “sociopathic liar.” “Didn’t want to announce it this way, but since DeSantis is now...

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis fired back at his New York counterpart Andrew Cuomo on Saturday after the New York governor said he was considering quarantining Florida residents visiting the Empire State. Cuomo’s statement On Thursday, Cuomo said he was considering imposing a 14-day quarantine for people visiting from states like Florida, which have seen a spike in new Covid-19 cases. “I have experts who have advised me to do that,” Cuomo said. “I am considering it now in some ways.” “You want to talk about a full 180 for those people,” he added. “Florida and other states imposed quarantine on...

    On his top-rated talk radio program Thursday, Rush Limbaugh kicked off a segment by announcing a rare honor bestowed by the “EIB Limbaugh Institute”: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is now officially “the closest that we’ve ever had to a graduate” of his prestigious institute, Limbaugh said. The reason the Republican governor has been awarded the honor, the host explained, is his thorough throttling of the media for their partisan coverage of his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. “I want to start with a graduate or the closest that we’ve ever had to a graduate, of the EIB Limbaugh Institute, and...

    The FBI has established a firm link between Al-Qaeda and Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, the Saudi aviation student who killed three U.S. service members and injured eight other Americans during a terrorist attack at the Pensacola naval airbase in Florida in December 2019. The FBI found that Alshamrani, who was killed in the attack, had “significant ties” to Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and frequently contacted operatives in the terrorist organization, even on the night before the attack, the leaders of the Justice Department (DOJ) and the FBI announced Monday.

    THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION Florida voters don't have a clear favorite in the upcoming presidential election. If the election for president were being held today, former Vice President Joe Biden would get 46 percent of the vote, while Trump would get 42 percent. The candidates are holding their bases just about equally well, as Biden wins among Democrats 91 - 4 percent and Trump wins among Republicans 89 - 7 percent. The race is close among the key swing group, independents, with Biden getting 44 percent of the vote and Trump receiving 37 percent.

    While Trump has continuously blasted the impeachment inquiry, calling it a “one-sided sham process” and blocking his highest-profile officials from testifying before a Democratic-dominated House, the president has also said he would "love" for his administration officials to testify in the Senate. “It will be fair in the Senate,” he said ahead of the first House impeachment hearing.

    Anyone wondering why religious people still support Donald Trump, despite his flaws, need only watch a recording of the Democrats’ fanatical LGBTQ town hall last week. From Elizabeth Warren mocking religious males as incapable of finding a wife to Beto O’Rourke’s promise to strip tax benefits from religious institutions, or Cory Booker’s assertion that Catholics use religion to justify discrimination, you see the ugly face of militant secularism and coercion. It is frightening that every one of the nine Democratic candidates who took part in the CNN event has signed up to extreme policies that attack religious liberty and radically...

    To the golf carts! Despite (or perhaps because of) impeachment proceedings launching in Washington D.C., President Donald Trump is taking his show on the road next week. Thursday finds the President in the Villages, where he will sign an Executive Order vowing to protect Medicare, a program important to residents. Trump’s visit was originally scheduled for August but was postponed after the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio. Sumter County GOP chair John Temple told the Orlando Sentinel that the event will be held at 1:30 p.m. at the Sharon L. Morse Performing Arts Center, the same...

    Sybrina Fulton has earned another big-time national endorsement in her Miami-Dade County Commission race, as U.S. Sen. Cory Booker says he’ll be backing Fulton’s bid. Booker, who is currently running for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, joins former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in supporting Fulton. Clinton announced her support late last week. Fulton is the mother of Trayvon Martin, who was shot and killed in an altercation with George Zimmerman back in 2012. She’s competing against Miami Gardens Mayor Oliver Gilbert III for the District 1 Commission seat. Booker referenced the 2012 shooting in his announcement supporting Fulton’s campaign....

    Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell claimed that she is aware of Senate Republicans who are willing to back impeachment of President Trump if it becomes clear that he tried to use foreign aid as "leverage." In a July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Trump discussed both the aid the United States provides to Ukraine, while also requesting he look into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden. The transcript of the phone call in question was released by the White House on Wednesday. In an interview on CNN shortly after, Mucarsel-Powell stated, "I do...

    While things have calmed somewhat regarding President Trump and immigration (I mean, his Sharpie pen on a hurricane map IS vastly important), Florida Democrats are trying to build the importance of that issue back up, and it's with an eye on the demographic map. Thinking they've found a wedge to finally strip away the dependable Cuban vote from the red team, Democratic pols and their pals in the press are loudly crowing about "the GOP deportations" to Cuba. At issue is that President Trump has shown a willingness to send back some illegal residents to the island nation. Dems believe...

    With the Democratic National Committee (DNC) struggling to raise money, Chairman Tom Perez is planning to hold multiple fundraisers in Mexico City this September. The three fundraisers scheduled for the 28th, according to Bloomberg, will range from a student-centric event with a $25 minimum entry fee to a dinner at which tickets could go as high as $15,000. Under Perez’s leadership, the DNC has lagged far behind its Republican National Committee (RNC) counterpart in raising funds.

    While Democrats consider more than 20 candidates hoping to become their party's nominee, the Republican National Committee is forging ahead with an August ground-game push to boost President Trump's reelection campaign in more than a dozen states. The RNC and the Trump Victory Committee launched an "Open for Business" tour last week featuring more than 30 events across 17 states to highlight the administration's economic achievements. In conjunction with the events hosted by surrogates, the committees have launched a six-figure digital ad buy targeting cities like Cedar Rapids, Des Moines, West Palm Beach, Miami and Las Vegas. The ads, which...
