  • Countering China requires decisive action, not talk and flattery — Here’s how I’ll do it as president

    The New York Post ^ | November 14, 2023 | Ron DeSantis
    As president, I will restore American strength on the world stage and focus our attention and resources on deterring Xi’s Chinese Communist Party — the greatest economic and security threat facing America today. My goal is straightforward: We win, and they lose. My treasury and commerce secretaries will focus on American interests, not Wall Street’s access to Chinese markets. I will create an Office of Economic Security and Competition to prioritize reshoring and friendshoring critical production, protecting technologies and reducing reliance on adversaries. I will defend American workers and innovators from illicit technology transfer and intellectual-property theft. I will align...
  • Biden Should Draw Red Lines For Hamas — Not Israel

    President Biden on Saturday suggested he might cut off US military assistance to Israel if it moved forward with a military operation to dismantle Hamas’ last stronghold in the Gazan city of Rafah. An Israeli victory over Hamas is now a red line for a president surrendering to a pro-Hamas political base. Americans should understand the consequences of that red line: A guarantee that Oct. 7 will happen again, that hostages will never come home, that an emboldened Iran will escalate on all fronts and that Hamas-oppressed civilians will suffer indefinitely. After dismantling Hamas’ operational control over northern and central...

    Floyd’s death during a police chokehold on May 25, 2020, ignited nationwide protests to reform police procedures. “It doesn’t get any worse than that,” President Donald Trump said of Floyd’s death. Within three weeks, he signed an executive order establishing an abuse-of-force database and called for improved police practices. Fast forward to Feb. 22, 2024, when Georgia nursing student Laken Riley was bludgeoned to death, allegedly at the hands of an illegal migrant, Jose Ibarra, who is a member of the notorious Venezuelan gang Tren de Aragua.

    Ghislaine Maxwell was photographed jogging behind bars in Florida recently. We hear the British socialite-turned-inmate was actually running in her prison’s official half-marathon. The race at the barbed wire-encircled Federal Correctional Institution of Tallahassee included 19 inmates who ran 52 times around the prison’s track to cover 13.1 miles. SNIP Besides distance running, he said, Maxwell is doing “yoga and Pilates” in jail as she preps for her appeal on March 12.
  • Ron DeSantis dishes on making Trump’s VP ‘short list’ — and why he’s not ruling out 2028 run

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said Wednesday he would not consider being Donald Trump’s running mate one day after the former president confirmed the former 2024 rival was on his “short list” — with DeSantis revealing that he was looking at other prospects, including another White House bid in four years. “People were mentioning me [as a potential vice president]. I am not doing that,” DeSantis told Republicans his presidential campaign had recruited to be delegates to this summer’s nominating convention during a thank-you call, audio of which was shared exclusively with The Post. The 45-year-old also went in-depth about who...
  • Why Is Biden Turning His Back on Europe?

    The European Union is good at coming up with inoffensive-sounding terminology to talk about unpleasant things. For example, the phrase “strategic autonomy” is a nice way of saying, “We don’t trust the Americans” — and, with Donald Trump leading the polls and boasting about encouraging Vladimir Putin to invade European countries, it is impossible to blame them. It is important to get the context of Trump’s remarks straight: Trump says he told an unidentified NATO counterpart whose country hadn’t met the organization’s target for defense spending, “No, I would not protect you. In fact, I would encourage [Russia] to do...

    What a score! Mayor Adams teamed up with New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy early Monday to tout the huge economic boost expected from netting the next soccer World Cup Final for MetLife Stadium. “This is a big win for all New Yorkers,” Adams told Fox 5 New York Monday morning of the giant win. While the stadium is just across the Hudson in the Garden State, the 2026 tournament is projected to generate over $2 billion for the region. It is also expected to create at least 14,000 jobs as about a million people are expected to hit the region...
  • George Soros’ Southampton estate ‘swatted’ in latest fake 911 call

    George Soros’ posh Southampton estate was swatted over the weekend as the lefty-leaning billionaire became the latest high-profile victim of the 911 pranks. Southampton police said they received the 911 call shortly before 9 p.m. Saturday, with the caller telling cops he had just shot his wife at the ritzy South Shore manse and was threatening to shoot himself — sending officers rushing to the scene. The report turned out to be bogus, Southampton Police Detective Herman Lamison said Monday. “Spoke to security, searched the premises. It was [a] negative problem,” one cop responding to the scene reported, according to...

    Three women who worked in former President Donald Trump’s administration bleakly warned voters against returning him to the White House in 2024. They cautioned that he poses a grave threat to American democracy and some even mused about backing the Democrat option should Trump lock down the GOP nod. “Everyone who was in the West Wing, and frankly, a lot of Cabinet secretaries, they know how dangerous Trump is,” former White House Communications Director Alyssa Farah Griffin told ABC’s “This Week.” “This is not about politics. It’s not about policy. It is about the character of the man.” Griffin was...

    Dave Chappelle did exactly what he said he wouldn’t do in his new Netflix special: make fun of trans people. Although his seventh special for Netflix, titled “The Dreamer,” begins with a fairly nostalgic look at his rise to fame, he turned course by telling a story about his visit to the set of “Man on the Moon” to meet Jim Carrey, one of his comedy idols. I wanted to meet Jim Carrey [who was method acting], but I had to pretend this n—a was Andy Kaufman. All afternoon,” he recalled during his show, which began streaming Sunday. “I could...

    Then-Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump railed against “so-called Christians” and “pieces of s—” evangelicals who supported Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in the 2016 Iowa caucuses, according to a forthcoming book. At the time, allies of Cruz had been making hay of Trump’s flub before an audience at Virginia’s Liberty University, a conservative evangelical college, in which he botched a question about his favorite Bible verse and replied that it came from the book of “Two Corinthians,” rather than “Second Corinthians.” “The laughter and ridicule were embarrassing enough for Trump,” Tim Alberta writes in his new book, “The Kingdom, the Power,...

    t’s a question as old as time: how long should you wait before you sleep together? As a woman, this question is particularly tricky. Not because we’re supposed to be ‘ladies’. That view died as soon as the Sex and the City girls knocked blokes over the head with the news that, yes, women enjoy getting jiggy with it just as much as they do. No, no, it’s trickier for women because thanks to podcaster Joe Rogan, we’ve all heard about the frightful ‘post nut syndrome’ (PNS).

    Within days of the Hamas slaughter of Israeli innocents, President Biden issued a veiled warning to Iran and any others who smelled a chance to pile on. As the president put it in a White House appearance Oct. 10, “To anyone thinking of taking advantage of the situation, I have one word: Don’t.” It wasn’t exactly a Clint Eastwood “Make my day” moment, but the point was clear enough. The United States has Israel’s back, so the axis of evil forces better stay on the sidelines. The point was underscored when Biden ordered an aircraft carrier strike group to the...
  • Mar-a-Lago was only worth $27M despite Trump Org. claiming $517M to gain edge: trial evidence

    Donald Trump’s tax broker was forced to admit to authorities in 2020 that Mar-a-Lago had a market value of just $27 million — not the $517 million claimed in other documents, trial evidence revealed Monday. Trump, 77, also allegedly boasted of having a net worth of up to $5 billion — likely more than double what he really had — to land the coveted lease to a New York City golf course in 2010, according to documents. The revelations came during the fifth week of New York state’s $250 million Manhattan Supreme Court civil fraud case against the former president,...

    SCRANTON, Pa. — President Biden has long touted his roots in this former coal-mining town, where he was born and lived for the first decade of his life. But a little more than a year before voters will determine whether the 80-year-old commander-in-chief will receive a second four-year term of office, denizens of Scranton’s Biden Street don’t feel so proud of their most famous native son.

    If you’re kicking yourself for missing the historic moment of a House speaker’s ouster Tuesday because you had to work or get your kids from school, relax: We watched, and all it boiled down to was hot air — sound and fury, signifying nothing except cynical nihilism and likely weeks of chaotic paralysis. Oh, Rep. Matt Gaetz and his fellow rebels talked plenty about high principle and the crisis of the Republic, but all they were really doing was burning down the House, or at least the House Republican majority. Professed conservative hardliner Gaetz got the chaos he wanted, ironically...

    Former President Donald Trump has drawn outrage from pro-life conservatives after he panned a six-week abortion ban championed by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as “terrible.” “I think what he did is a terrible thing and a terrible mistake,” Trump, 77, told NBC’s “Meet the Press” when asked about the policy in an interview that aired Sunday. The 45th president’s remarks triggered backlash among anti-abortion activists, including from groups like Live Action and Students for Life,*** “Pathetic and shameful. Trump is actively attacking the very pro-life laws made possible by Roe’s overturning,” Lila Rose of Live Action said on X, formerly...
  • Trump: ‘It was my decision’ to buy into idea that 2020 election was rigged — ‘didn’t respect’ aides who told him he lost

    Donald Trump on Sunday said it was “my decision” to believe that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged” — saying he didn’t respect the aides and lawyers who’d told him he’d lost. The former president, 77, was asked by NBC’s Kristen Welker on “Meet the Press” why he opted to ignore his “most senior lawyers” and campaign staffers about the election results. “Because I didn’t respect them,” Trump replied. Welker later asked the Republican frontrunner in the presidential primary whether he was “calling the shots … ultimately?” “As to whether or not I believed it was rigged? Oh, sure,” Trump...

    The New York Post, owned by globalist billionaire Rupert Murdoch, is risibly claiming that former President Donald Trump is “getting smoked” in the 2024 Republican presidential primary – despite Trump leading by double-digit margins in the polls. Columnist Karol Markowicz acknowledges Trump leads in the Republican field, but argues: “[t]he comparison shouldn’t be to candidates in past elections but to incumbents,” adding that if Biden polled similarly, “…he’d be shoved off the stage.”That’s not how primary polling or elections work, however. Markowicz is a supporter of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, though fails to declare her allegiance in the article published...
