    For reasons mysterious to the rational human mind, Fox News and the Republican National Committee decided to subject Americans to the most bizarre public spectacle in recent memory. It was stupid. It was strange. It was the second Republican presidential primary debate, which began with British-American Stuart Varney having a seizure while attempting to introduce his Univision cohost Ilia Calderón and concluded with Dana Perino asking the contestants who should be “voted off the island.” “Leading the charge, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis dismissed the question outright,” The Independent reported. “I’m not going to do that, with all due respect, we’re...

    Florida blogger and Ron DeSantis campaign influencer Chris Nelson was ejected from the Republican primary debate in Simi Valley, California after harassing Kari Lake and other debate guests. In the hours prior to the event, Nelson posted a series of videos to X (formerly Twitter) that show him shouting at Lake and others. In one video, he can be heard ranting about former President Donald Trump – suggesting his supporters intend to make him ‘Emperor of the United States.’Nelson has become a fairly regular figure among the DeSantis campaign’s online trolls, routinely attacking Trump supporters. Sources close to Nelson have...

    Jeb Bush wasted no time expressing his gratitude to Bermuda and its reinsurance market during the 62nd General Assembly & Annual Meeting of the World Federation of Exchanges at the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club. [cut] The remarks were made during a wideranging and freewheeling “fireside chat” with the former governor, his son George P. Bush and Thomas Gallagher, chairman and CEO of Miami International Holdings, which owns the Bermuda Stock Exchange. [cut] “I am worried about his [President Biden] age. We have a problem in our country. We have a lot of people who are past their prime who...

    This is a good one to bookmark for future reference. I have asserted confidently that Ron DeSantis is an empty vessel who carries the thoughts and opinions of others as his own. If you follow him closely you will see key moments when this is visible, one of them happened today.In this CBS interview with Nora O’Donnell (a deep state DOS narrative engineer), notice the framework of the first question that triggers the downstream consequence of nonsense. This is what happens when narrative engineers are working on points that are based entirely around cognitive dissonance.The first question frames the subject...

    The Governor has 10% support. New polling from the Lone Star State shows Ron DeSantis continuing to lose ground to Donald Trump. The Defend Texas Liberty PAC Texas Statewide 2024 Likely Republican Labor Day Issue Poll shows Trump ahead of the Florida Governor, 61% to 10%, among the 406 likely voters surveyed by CWS Research. This is by far Trump’s biggest lead over DeSantis in the state. DeSantis was at 13% in July, 19% in June and 23% in May, meaning the Governor has lost more than half his support in the last few months.

    A very bad, terrible, no good news day for Ron DeSantis today.A $50 million Super PAC scheduled to launch in support of his campaign was forced to abandon all hope after the donors backed out, essentially saying it’s futile. Then, moments later, the Never Back Down super PAC announced they were backing down from Super Tuesday states and halting all door knocking activity in Nevada, California, North Carolina and Texas. The burn rate on cash was too much and no resupply.I said last year, when few would accept my predication of a DeSantis effort, to settle into an unemotional spectator...

    Political action committee Never Back Down spoke to dozens of wealthy Republican backers about how they are going to lean on 'warm and humble' Casey to make Ron more likable in the unfolding campaign. CEO Chris Jankowski told the donors on August 23: 'We just need your help getting $50 million more by the end of the year, and $100 million more by the end of March. Never Back Down has been operating as a type of shadow campaign for DeSantis after receiving an initial $82.5 million from his own state political committee. Jankowski, Davison and Roe spent their time...

    New polling released after the GOP presidential debate shows an age gap when it comes to Ron DeSantis supporters. A Léger survey conducted Wednesday and Thursday in conjunction with the New York Post shows that while DeSantis has 9% support overall (52 points behind Donald Trump, but in second place nonetheless), there is an age gap. Voters 54 years old or younger are much less likely to back the Florida Governor’s 2024 bid for the Republican nomination than those 55 and up. Among voters 18 to 34 years of age, DeSantis’ 5% puts him behind Mike Pence’s 6% and in...

    In a recent post on Truth Social, former President Donald Trump weighed in on the alleged dwindling prospects of Ron DeSantis’s presidential campaign.Trump speculated that DeSantis might withdraw from the presidential race to instead challenge Rick Scott for his Senate seat in Florida.“Rumors are strong in political circles that Ron DeSanctimonious, whose Presidential run is a shambles, and whose poll numbers have absolutely crashed, putting him 3rd and 4th in some states, will be dropping out of the Presidential race in order to run, in Florida, against Rick Scott for Senate. Now that’s an interesting one, isn’t it?” Trump posted...

    Florida's Ron DeSantis was savagely booed off the podium at a vigil he attended for three black people killed at a Dollar Store during a racist mass shooting. The Governor, 44, was called out by local councilmembers before taking to the mic himself and was met with overwhelming negativity from the crowd - as one heckler shouted: 'Your policies caused this!' Councilwoman Ju'Coby Pittman called for better state funding before DeSantis took to the stage: 'Let's be honest, we don't get the money we should get. 'But when I ask for some money this week, we gonna get it.' He...

    The general Trumpworld consensus around last Wednesday night’s GOP primary debate, mainly as laid out by Florida Rep. Byron Donalds during Fox News post-debate analysis, seems to be that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis had a solid enough performance but failed to dominate and thus didn’t move the needle in any meaningful way. It’s a ridiculously unfair cope, of course. In a field of eight, it’s tough to hit a home run, especially when the other candidates aren’t directly targeting you and giving you a chance to rebut anything. Which is interesting in and of itself. Of the people on that...

    Hundreds of people gathered Sunday at prayer vigils and in church, in frustration and exhaustion, to mourn yet another racist attack... ...Ron DeSantis — who is running for the GOP nomination for president, who has loosened gun laws in Florida and who has antagonized civil rights leaders by deriding “wokeness " — was loudly booed as he addressed the vigil. Ju’Coby Pittman, a Jacksonville city councilwoman who represents the neighborhood where the shooting happened, stepped in to ask the crowd to listen.

    Coming off of what Never Back Down considers a strong Republican National Committee debate performance by DeSantis, it is preparing a $25 million television ad buy in the two states. The TV spots will be purchased to run between Labor Day and Halloween. The group expects to place the initial $13 million in reservations as soon as Friday, and it is planning additional ad purchases for New Hampshire. Sen. Tim Scott's (R-SC) super PAC, Trust in the Mission or TIMPAC, was the first to reserve fall airtime earlier this month. TIMPAC made a $40 million reservation for TV and digital...

    Ron DeSantis gripped a baseball, looked at his 5-year-old son, Mason, and lobbed him pitch after pitch. He grinned at Mason's hits and rolled his eyes when his own pitches came in too low or too high. “Bad pitch, buddy,” the Florida governor said after one errant throw. “That one was my fault.” DeSantis, who battles a reputation for being stiff and unfriendly, approached the field wearing a fleece campaign vest and long-sleeved shirt with his sleeves rolled up. The heat was starting to ease with sunset.

    Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., struggled to drum up support amid her remarks about the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) on Wednesday, insisting the audience should clap throughout certain parts of her speech. Joined by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., at the White House to boast about the measure on its one-year anniversary, Pelosi touted what she believes to be benefits of the IRA, which she described as a "remarkable accomplishment." Pelosi said there is "no more urgent task than saving our planet," claiming the issue of climate change is a "health issue," an "economic issue," and a "moral...

    Today was a not very good, horrible day for the DeMeatball in Iowa. While President Trump was swamped with people cheering and trying to get an autograph, the absentee governor from the Sunshine state was running the gauntlet through crowds shouting, “we love Trump” and calling the lying liar who lies, “pudding fingers.” lol 😂The optics were so bad, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, a DeSantis supporter and campaign advocate, had to beg people in attendance to stop yelling at the sensitive guy from Florida, and be “Iowa nice.” However, while the GOP may define “Iowa nice” as the powdered wig...

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s camp on Saturday blasted Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ proposed rules for a long-touted debate, arguing that they are an attempt to hide his weaknesses as a candidate. “What a joke,” Newsom spokesperson Nathan Click said in a statement. “Desantis’ counterproposal is littered with crutches to hide his insecurity and ineptitude — swapping opening statements with a hype video, cutting down the time he needs to be on stage, adding cheat notes and a cheering section.” “Ron should be able to stand on his own two feet,” he added. “It’s no wonder Trump is kicking his ass.”
