  • Nikki Haley Is the New Ron DeSantis

    This might be Nikki Haley’s moment. Not her moment to become the Republican presidential front-runner. (Don’t be silly.) Not even her moment to nip at Donald Trump’s heels. But it could be her chance to consolidate the anti-Trump support in the GOP, and to make a solid play for the silver medal and maybe a good speaking slot at the RNC in Milwaukee next summer. The former South Carolina governor and United Nations ambassador has risen, slightly, in recent polls, and is now third in RealClearPolitics’ average of national polls, after Trump and Ron DeSantis. She is consistently coming in...

    PALM BEACH, Florida — President Donald J. Trump reacted to News Corp mogul Rupert Murdoch standing down from his role as CEO today, in a wide ranging, exclusive interview with The National Pulse set to air early next week.Trump, who has recently been on the receiving end of Murdoch’s influence at Fox News, discussed the issue during a sit down interview at Mar-a-Lago, telling Editor-in-Chief Raheem Kassam, “I wish him luck,” before lauding the Fox hosts who he says have covered his campaign fairly, as well as using the opportunity to praise the late Roger Ailes.On Murdoch’s hostility towards him,...

    Rupert Murdoch, the powerful right-wing media mogul who built and oversaw one of the world’s most influential news empires, announced Thursday that he will step down as chairman of his companies, Fox Corporation and News Corporation. “For my entire professional life, I have been engaged daily with news and ideas, and that will not change,” Murdoch, 92, wrote in a memo to employees. “But the time is right for me to take on different roles, knowing that we have truly talented teams.” As the leader of Fox and News Corporation, which publishes influential broadsheets such as The Wall Street Journal...

    Is the Republican race for presidential nominee over before any votes are cast? Some people sure would like it to be. “It’s over!” Trump supporters declare with the assured enthusiasm of a Mets fan at spring training. This is our year! No unforeseen injuries will cripple our chances! We’re going all the way! A closer look at the numbers shows a ballgame very much in progress. There’s no doubt Trump is a unique political phenomenon. He makes people feel something. They vote with their heart for Trump. He’s magnetic. But just as magnets attract, they repel. Yes, Trump is polling...
  • Ron DeSantis $50 million super PAC CLOSES after donors were spooked by 'rookie s*** mistakes'

    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.
  • BUSTED – Fox News and Martha MacCallum Caught Presenting Koch Brothers Activist as Fake GOP Voter in Wisconsin to Support Ron DeSantis

    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...

    VIDEORupert Murdoch has been attempting to manipulate the American political system AWAY from President Donald Trump ever since he chose Chris Stirewalt to report from the Fox News election desk on Election Night 2020. That's when Stirewalt chose to ignore calling Florida for Trump for hours despite an early overwhelming lead in that state yet bizarrely called Arizona for Biden just minutes after the polls closed there. Ever since then, Murdoch has been pulling down the Fox News ratings by continually slamming Trump and now promoting other candidates, most notably Ron DeSantis. As you can see in this Fox News...

    Other than being large-state governors who have seen a future president in the bathroom mirror each day, California Democrat Gavin Newsom and Florida Republican Ron DeSantis don’t have a lot in common. Newsom has led a state government totally controlled by his party to create something of a progressive laboratory on issues ranging from climate change to abortion rights to protections for undocumented immigrants. DeSantis, of course, has made his alleged conversion of Florida into a cultural and regulatory paradise for reactionaries – where “woke goes to die” – the signature of his once-formidable, now flailing presidential bid. Both these...

    Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is running ads to promote the impending one-on-one debate against rival Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom amid their ongoing coast-to-coast feud. "Ron DeSantis is debating Gavin Newsom to highlight the choice facing American voters next year," the talking points added later. The campaign also released ads to promote the debate and encourage voters to "choose their fighter." "Who do you support?" the arcade game-themed advertisement reads.

    Gilgo Beach murder suspect Rex Heuermann once worked as an architect for former President Donald Trump, a report said. The Trump Organization hired Heuermann’s architectural firm, RH Architecture, for a plumbing job on the 17th floor of the Trump Building at 40 Wall St., according toan October 2018 filing with the New York City Department of Buildings. The project at the crown jewel Art Deco-style building was projected to cost $205,017.00, the document states. The filing names Heuermann as the applicant, while the Trump Organization’s VP of property management, Steve Lafiosca, is shown as the owner.

    Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis has fired a number of his staff due to his struggling presidential campaign failing to meet fundraising goals, as well as burning through inordinate amounts of large, corporate donor cash less than two months after he announced that he was running for the Republican presidential nomination.The news came just days after National Pulse Editor-in-Chief predicted the “shake up” on The Campaign Trail podcast as well as on Twitter:[cut] Another major revelation is that just 15 percent of the DeSantis campaign’s donations came from “small-dollar donors,” compared to former president Donald Trump, who is heavily reliant...

    I don’t know what’s funnier, that Team DeSantis is now providing discounts for people to meet him, or that Rupert Murdoch is the one telling everybody. Next up, coupons. However, I qualify this article sharing by saying the Big Club doesn’t put $250+ million into a political construct and give up this easily. Until Casey DeSantis publicly renounces her quest for a bigger tiara, Super PAC operators Ken Cuccinelli and Jeff Roe will never concede. Reference Cindy McCain in Arizona for comparable context.

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis almost quadrupled his net worth in a year, thanks to a seven-figure payday from his bestselling memoir, "The Courage to be Free." The 2024 candidate's net worth as of December 31, 2022, was $1,174,331, according to documents he filed to the Florida Commission on Ethics ahead of a July 1 deadline. A year earlier, DeSantis' net worth was nearly $319,000. The lift in salary was largely thanks to a $1.25 million book advance DeSantis got from Broadside Books, the conservative arm of HarperCollins Publishing that is owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. Since filing his last...

    Far-right Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene plunged a House Homeland Security Committee hearing into chaos Wednesday by accusing Rep. Eric Swalwell of having a “sexual relationship with a Chinese spy” — leading Democrats to unsuccessfully demand that the remark be purged from the record. Greene (R-Ga.) made the comment moments after Swalwell accused her of “anti-police rhetoric” and showed a print-out of a tweet she wrote promoting “Defund the FBI” merchandise in response to purported bureau bias. “That was quite entertaining from someone that had a sexual relationship with a Chinese spy — and everyone knows it,” Greene shot back, referring...

    People often ask me why I seem to highlight datapoints and background events that do not trend to the media-driven narrative priority of the moment. The answer is simple; everything is connected to the next thing that happens. If you do not outline the originating point, the accurate reference is missed when needed.This approach is why I have focused significant research on Elon Musk’s financial situation with Twitter {GO DEEP}.The issue of Twitter’s financial status speaks to the motives of Musk that later surface – like his relationship with Fox News billionaire Rupert Murdoch.

    Who says bromance is dead? Our ever-fickle ex-prez Donald Trump has found a new fave in an old enemy: disgraced former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, on whom he basically showered praise from his Truth Social account for his handling of New York’s COVID crisis by contrasting it favorably with that of chief GOP rival Fla. Gov. Ron DeSantis. And Cuomo, a founding member of his own fan club, kindly reciprocated, tweeting that “Donald Trump tells the truth, finally. New York got hit first and worst but New Yorkers acted responsibly. Florida’s policy of denial allowed Covid to spread and...
