  • LISTEN: DeSantis Backers Jenna Ellis & Steve Deace Rant About Founding Fathers Being in Hell for Not Repenting Over Slavery

    09/18/2023 1:30:23 PM PDT · by SoConPubbie · 60 replies
    Jenna Ellis, a former Trump lawyer turned hysterical anti-Trumper, referred to the 45th President as “malignant” during an unhinged rant involving establishment Republican Steve Deace, who bizarrely suggested America’s Founding Fathers have gone to hell.Deace, who wanted Trump to lose in 2016, now supports Ron DeSantis for the 2024 GOP nomination. The Florida Governor recently tweeted that he was “proud” to have received Deace’s endorsement. In the clip below, Deace can be heard insisting:“[W]e need to remember there are Founding Fathers who are in hell for all of eternity, who did some great work, but they didn’t bow the knee...

    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...

    The idea that Rep. Matt Gaetz will run for Florida governor in 2026 has been the topic of several conversations in Tallahassee over the past few days, including during a reception Sunday night for the incoming speaker of the Florida House. Gaetz has long been considered on the shortlist of those who will try to seek the Republican nomination for governor, a field that is expected to be crowded because the incumbent, Ron DeSantis, will be facing term limits. DeSantis is currently running for president but would have two years remaining in the governor’s mansion if that run falls short....

    Ron DeSantis is attending a Texas fundraiser hosted by Lamar Smith, a former Texas Congressman who is now a registered foreign agent and a donor to Democrat politician Jamie Raskin, who led impeachment efforts against Donald Trump over January 6th.Smith is advertised by Team DeSantis as one of the hosts of the Friday fundraiser in San Antonio. The Florida Governor is currently polling at 10 percent to Trump’s 61 percent in Texas, and Smith seems unlikely to help burnish the Floridian’s America First credentials, being a registered foreign agent.Despite his background as a GOP legislator, Smith is also a donor...

    It's make or break time, America. President Donald Trump leads Governor Ron DeSantis, his closest competitor, by up to 50 percentage points. Let's be clear about what DeSantis is up against. He's splitting the 'anyone but Trump vote' with seven other GOP candidates. But there is a way through – just listen to New Hampshire's Republican Governor Chris Sununu. 'If seven of those candidates have the discipline to get out, Trump loses,' Sununu said in a new interview this week. 'Make it a one-on-one race, Trump loses. There's no question about it.' So here we go: a plea to the...

    Friday, during an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “America Reports,” Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) insisted his 2024 presidential election campaign was built for “the long haul.”He insisted he was competing in Iowa, and there were undecided voters who could still be swayed to vote for him despite his lackluster polling thus far.The Florida Republican said nobody was “entitled to be nominated.”“[W]e know the issues that people care about,” he said. “Economy, border, crime, education, all these things. Weaponization of government. The question is, who is best equipped to bring all this in for a landing? And I think you’re right....

Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., capture the 2024 Republican presidential nomination has closed shop and announced that it will shift its support to President Donald Trump, the Daily Mail revealed.In early 2023, legal counsel for DeSantis noted that the PAC, “Ron to the Rescue” was “similar to other ‘pro-DeSantis’ PACs that have formed and continue to use Ron DeSantis’ name and likeness to raise funds without his permission or authorization.”However, the Daily Mail reported that the PAC had accumulated $50 million that could have been donated to DeSantis’s current 2024 presidential...

    Republican Strategist John Thomas, the FOUNDER of the DeSantis Super PAC just went on News Nation and dropped a bomb! Thomas told News Nation that DeSantis lacks all of the qualities that make a good candidate – charm, charisma, discipline, being likeable – and he is now backing Trump. John Thomas: I, along with a lot of grassroots supporters and major donors, said, okay, let’s draft DeSantis, encourage him to run for president, because we think he’s got the stuff. Except there was one problem, Adrian. It’s that when Governor DeSantis did end up launching, he had a failure to...

    The top strategist for Ron DeSantis’ super PAC privately told donors that Vivek Ramaswamy posed a threat to the Florida governor — and bragged that the super PAC was behind an avalanche of opposition research targeting the rival candidate. “Everything you read about him is from us,” Jeff Roe, the leader of the DeSantis-aligned Never Back Down told the gathering of donors. “Every misstatement, every 360 he’s conducting or 180 that he is going through in life, is from our scrutiny and pressure. And so, he’s not going to go through that very well, and that will get worse for...

    A super PAC set up to back Ron DeSantis with $50 million is closing as donors backed out - while its founder said the Florida governor's campaign was guilty of 'rookie s**t' mistakes and he will now back Donald Trump. John Thomas, a Republican strategist known as the 'Billy the Kid of Political Battles' set up 'Ron to the Rescue' in November and had secured financial commitments from mega-wealthy donors. But he said the donors began having second thoughts after the botched DeSantis campaign launch on Twitter Spaces in May.

    Politics might briefly be put on pause when it comes to federal/state cooperation in dealing with Hurricane Idalia. But the Trump-hating liberal media never sleeps! During today's Morning Joe, Willie Geist and Jonathan repeatedly emphasized that politics are being put aside in the dealings between the Biden administration and the administration of Florida Governor -- and potential Biden presidential opponent -- Ron DeSantis, as they organize the response to Hurricane Idalia. But when the show aired DeSantis's live briefing on the hurricane, the very first question out of the box from a reporter was a snarky shot at Donald Trump....

    AccuWeather released a stunning satellite video Monday of Tropical Storm Idalia gaining strength over the Gulf of Mexico. The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a slew of warnings Monday and Tuesday regarding the storm, which is anticipated to ramp up energy and turn into a hurricane in the coming days. Though it is not set to make landfall until Wednesday, NWS and other authorities are telling residents in Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas to prepare now, as the system poses “life-threatening” hazards to the entire region. The satellite imagery shared by AccuWeather is just a few seconds long, but shows...

    Focus on the signal, not the noise,” is a phrase that might as well have been coined by Steve Bannon given how frequently he and his acolytes make use of it. At this stage in the game, it should be the mantra of the MAGA movement writ large; for the hour is already late, there is a mountain of work left to do to haul President Trump over the finish line: navigating a corrupt, weaponized justice system; dealing with rigged election procedures; combatting both soft and overt censorship by mainstream networks and social media – and that is just the...

    Former President Trump praised biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy after the Republican millennial defended him during the first debate. “This answer gave Vivek Ramaswamy a big WIN in the debate because of a thing called TRUTH. Thank you Vivek!” Trump posted early Thursday morning on his Truth Social platform of the 2024 GOP presidential candidate. Trump included a clip of Ramaswamy’s remarks, in which the 38-year-old Republican contender said during the first debate “President Trump, I believe, was the best president of the 21st Century.”

    Are you Desantis people paying attention yet? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ By now we are all too familiar with the schemes and plots of the corporate media as they participate in the political illusion of choice game. However, for Rupert Murdoch and Fox News debate moderator Martha MacCallum, this catch shreds the remaining little credibility they carried. Fox News is hosting the GOP debate in Wisconsin. During this build up segment, Martha MacCallum introduces the “random Republican voters” in Wisconsin who will watch the debate. Except, well… there’s a little problem. MacCallum introduces Chris Lawrence as a “Wisconsin GOP voter” who seemingly supports...

    Allies of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis outlined a strategy for next week's GOP presidential primary debate in a memo encouraging him to defend former President Donald Trump from attacks by rival Chris Christie and call upstart contender Vivek Ramaswamy "fake." The two-page memo, written by leaders of the pro-DeSantis super PAC Never Back Down, was published to the website of Axiom Strategies and dated Aug. 15. Axiom founder Jeff Roe also leads the pro-DeSantis' super PAC. “Defend Trump when Chris Christie attacks him,” the memo reads, adding a potential line for DeSantis to use on stage in Milwaukee against the...

    Former President Donald Trump leads President Joe Biden and Green Party presidential candidate Cornell West in a hypothetical three-way race for the White House, according to a national Emerson College poll. The poll also gauged the Republican presidential primary, finding that Trump maintains a colossal advantage with 56 percent support. Former Gov. Ron DeSantis’s (R-FL) support has dropped off 11 points since June 20, when he registered at 21 percent. While he looks to stop the hemorrhaging, he finds himself tied with the surging 37-year-old entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy at ten percent. Ramaswamy is up eight points since June. Kimball noted...
