Taking Aim at DeSantis, Spooked Trump
Considers Launching 2024 Bid in Florida

Original Article

Posted By: Solid_Oak, 6/13/2022 12:40:32 PM

Donald Trump in recent months has been telling confidants that he may launch his 2024 presidential campaign early — and that he’s considering launching it in Florida to stick it to Gov. Ron DeSantis. Trump has kicked around staging a large, flashy launch rally (with fireworks, of course) that would announce his White House bid before the 2022 midterm elections, according to three sources familiar with the matter.


He's hearing footsteps........

Has Desantis himself ever expressed any desire to run for President in 24? If not then all these Trump vs DeSantis articles are garbage.

First: Coming from Rolling Stoned, probably BS. Second: After Trumps recent (insane) endorsements, I've gotta go Heavy D at this point. If Jarred and/or Ivanka is still anywhere near him, NOTHING will change.

I guess we now have assigned commenters who's job is to convince us we don't really want Trump. Here's what I know, so far he has gotten around 115 people elected for the position they were running form. Seven he backed didn't win. Now what's this about his losing his cachet?

I want the Trump policies, but don't necessarily need the man. His backing of McCarthy is suspect, plus, blood being thicker than water, Ivanka and Jared will still have his ear.

#7...I too have noticed the new "influencer's" lately, I'm sure the pressure will increase as we near midterm's. I really like DeSantis but he is still very young and has not been tested on a national scale for the hate that will come. If he became Trump's VP in '24 he will be prefect to carry on for eight more years. I will not abandon Trump in '24. He withstood more hateful garbage thrown his way than any other human could withstand. He did it for us. I would be more than happy to trade my situation today for a little pomposity and a few mean Tweet's, rather than the INSANE nightmare we are living under Biden Von Munchhausen and his fantasy life and stinking economy.

Whether he said it or not, it is something that is consistent with his personality and temperament. I appreciate what Trump did but he made many poor choices in his appointments and he also lacks the ability to succinctly make compelling arguments on major issues. We need a polished, disciplined and brilliant candidate for President in 2024 and that person is Ron Desantis.

Arm chair quarterbacks are a riot. Especially after the play. Many of them are experts without ever touching a football. So they think. The same urge is applied to politics. The nonsense that sends people adrift is remarkable. Look out your front door and see what is happening to America. Something has to give as we painfully wait. The solution however, will not be echoed in The Rolling Stone rag by any stretch of the imagination. Just imagine what our lives would be like today if Donald John Trump was the president.

I love everything how Trump and DeSantis govern. The problem with Trump is that he has a habit of stepping on his own message. The libs are fixated on Trump and their hatred on him. They forget about DeSantis as long as they are trying to destroy Trump. I hope Trump continues poking them in the eye so we can sneak DeSantes in as our next president. I think Trump is doing an excellent job as king maker.

Consider the source: The Rolling Stool. Kinda O/T, but for those suggesting DeSantis as VP, isn't there a rule that the Presidential and vice-Presidential nominees can NOT be from the same state?

#21 "DeSantis made it very clear he will not run if trump runs." I've read other posts in the past that said what you said (above), but it's not true. Some politicians have said that they don't think he will not run, but DeSantis hasn't said what his intentions are either way.

Governor DeSantis continues to push America First policies and laws. Why? Because we have no voice in Washington willing to do the same. He is the defacto Trump, showing America the stark difference between communist policies and America First policies. He’s keeping the Trump policy momentum alive because there is no other option at this time! Go Gov!

There are "Never-Trumpers" and "Maybe-Trumpers" besides the Trumpistas. FPDT treads on some soggy ground if he jumps in too early, sinking further if he becomes too shrill or "nasty". Republicans have seen the act, and this time it is likely the response by others in the race will be bolder and sharper...and that is unlikely to bode well for a '24 FPDT candidacy. Pence has seen the act before and is plugged into the establishment and its money. DeSantis is clearly trying to assume leadership of the "Trump Movement", attracting the Maybe Trumpers while bringing back some of those Never-Trumpers. There will surely be others in the race. It will be interesting...let's see who throws the inevitable tantrum in the end. One hopes we don't see another 1912 Bull Moose election.

You know, does Rolling Stone ever do stories about music and entertainment anymore? DeSantis is an attractive candidate for 2024. So is Trump, rough edges and all. Trump will need to set aside that "they stole it in 2020" routine and pivot to "Make America Great Again - Again." And go into DC in 2025 ready to say "You're fired" more often than he did on the Apprentice, and with his team ready to walk in to every government bureaucracy at 12:01 pm on January 20, 2025 carrying empty cardboard boxes for political and quasi-political appointtes of Biden, Obama and the deep state to pack their things and leave for good. If he can't do that, well, then DeSantis may be a better choice. It will not be a Trump/DeSantis ticket because the Constitution prohibits electors in the Electoral College from casting ballots for a President and Vice President from the same state. So, Trump would have to move back to New York (fat chance) for the two to serve on the same team. (Cheney relocated back to Wyoming from Texas in 2000 when GW Bush chose him as running mate.)

Folks, Trump gives endorsements to gain allies and control, to some degree the narrative. In some cases, a RINO was running, and even if you replace them with another RINO, it slaps all of their faces that they are replaceable. That keeps them more honest. Until all of us Lucianne posters are willing to step up to the plate and run, well... you get what you get.

PRESIDENT Trump, or any other person planning on running for president, can not declare their running until. AFTER the mid term elections. A lot can change between now and then. If PRESIDENT Trump does decide to run I will be the first in line to vote for him. He has bee much wiser about politics. And best of all he now knows who the traitors are. You just watch, if PRESIDENT Trump announces he is running, watch all the traitors R &D decide to not run for office, saying they want to be with family. I pray he runs, he wins, and pulls the plug on the swamp.

Just an observation: No one ever seems to cry "Fake News!" or "Consider the Source!" if an article is overtly favorable to Trump but if perceived as unfavorable, the cries become a tsunami. If either of them becomes the nominee, that person will get my vote - and I suspect many millions of votes in the general election.

LOL, the sexually confused founder of RS has been a screaming, far left, lying, moron for decades. The staff has followed his lead of being obnoxious, liberal know nothings ever since. Anyone who cheers this fantasy has to examine the record. Thinking there is a way for any normal to romance the evil media is just foolish. Thinking there is a path of moderation that will bring the swamp on board any rational, America first, moves in the DC swamp is a strong indication that you aren't paying attention. You either understand that President Donald Trump actually accomplished more than any of his critics and doubters thought possible, while fighting a demonic rat party and their foreign funded media, or you live in some kind of imaginary world. POTUS Trump can point to a record of results that include all time best. Some big failings, but considering the army of lying traitors he fought almost single handed, the real results were impressive. DeSantis might be even better, but starting over with another battle in the swamp, is exactly what the rats and media want. Don't give them what they want. Let the 2 great leaders work out what they want to do and maybe slam R.S. or the thousands of real issues the coup pretend President has inflicted on the world. This argument is as stupid as the gossip about manic musicians that the tabloid was founded on.

Ready for Ron PAC urges DeSantis to run

A new political action committee has formed attempting to draft Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to run for president in 2024, and it is being run by a Republican consultant heavyweight who has been a veteran of campaigns involving former GOP Presidents Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump.  The Ready for Ron PAC is being led by two generations. Ed Rollins was the campaign chairman for Reagan’s 1984 landslide of 49 states and ran the pro-Trump Great America PAC for the 2020 election. Lilian Rodríguez-Baz, a newcomer to politics, is a Miami appellate attorney and conservative activist.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly a year since its inception, the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol will go public with its findings starting this week as lawmakers hope to show the American public how democracy came to the brink of disaster. The series of hearings that will take place over the next several weeks begin with a prime-time session Thursday night in which the nine-member panel plans to give an overview of its 11-month investigation. More than 1,000 people have been interviewed by the panel, and only snippets of that testimony have been revealed to the public, mostly through court filings.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Tampa Bay Rays fans spoke to Fox News about Gov. Ron DeSantis’ decision to veto $35 million in funding for a new training facility. "We as taxpayers should just worry about bringing lots of … fans to the area and support that," Bonnie, of Bradenton, told Fox News. "The governor has no business in that." After vetoing the funding, DeSantis said Friday that he doesn't "support giving taxpayer dollars to professional sports stadiums" and that "it's inappropriate to subsidize political activism of a private corporation." The Rays had pledged to donate $50,000 to Everytown for Gun Safety in late May following the Uvalde, Texas, shooting.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis claimed another clean win over former President Donald Trump in a recent straw poll of self-identified conservative conference-goers who were asked who they'd like to be the 2024 presidential nominee. According to the poll, DeSantis received the thumbs-up from 71.01% of voters, while Trump received approval from 67.68% of those who answered the poll.

His every utterance seems calculated to send progressives into a frenzy. He's one of the most prolific political fundraisers in America. His endorsements of other like-minded America First conservative candidates help those beneficiaries pull ahead in crowded primaries. And the worst-kept secret in American politics is that he wants to swap out his Sunshine State address for 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue as soon as possible. No, the politician is not Donald Trump but rather Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who lately seems bent on executing just about every page of the former president's political playbook—only with a sunnier demeanor, less offensive language and fewer of the personal antics that make Trump so polarizing.

President Joe Biden is on the verge of announcing $10,000 in federal student loan forgiveness per borrower for millions of Americans, according to The Washington Post. "The White House's latest plans called for limiting debt forgiveness to Americans who earned less than $150,000 in the previous year, or less than $300,000 for married couples filing jointly," write Post reporters Tyler Pager, Danielle Douglas-Gabriel, and Jeff Stein. Their sources did not say "whether the administration will simultaneously require interest and payments to resume at the end of August, when the current pause is scheduled to lapse."

The Washington state Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that a person’s race, and law enforcement’s long history of discrimination against people of color, should be taken into account when determining the legality of police seizures. The court also clarified state law to say police have seized a person if an objective observer would conclude that the person was not free to leave or refuse a request. But, the court wrote, that “objective observer” must be aware that discrimination and biases “have resulted in disproportionate police contacts, investigative seizures, and uses of force against Black, Indigenous, and other people of color.”

US Attorney General Merrick Garland on Monday fired off an ominous warning to Trump and his advisors when a reporter asked him about the January 6 show trials. The January 6 Maoist show trials continued on Monday with Liz Cheney at the helm. A reporter asked Merrick Garland whether he has had a chance to watch the January 6 hearings and if he has learned anything that could be useful for the Justice Department’s work. “I am watching and I will be watching all of the hearings…and I can assure you that the January 6th prosecutors are watching all the hearings as well,” Garland said.

Earlier this afternoon former AG Bill Barr laughed hysterically when he was asked about the evidence of voter fraud presented by “2000 Mules” during his pre-recorded testimony at the Jan 6 show trial. “Uh, the election was not stolen by fraud. And I haven’t seen anything since the election that changes my mind on that, including the ‘2000 Mules’ movie,” Barr said as he laughed hysterically. Barr cited the lack of photographic evidence. And then mocked the geo-tracking cell phone data.

President Joe Biden on Tuesday blamed Republicans and the Russian invasion of Ukraine for soaring US inflation, in a bid to deflect voter anger over his inability to keep prices down. Speaking to trade unions in Philadelphia on the eve of the Federal Reserve's likely decision to raise interest rates again, Biden said inflation is "sapping the strength of a lot of families." (Snip) But he rejected arguments that his government's massive spending to stimulate the economy at the tail end of the Covid-19 pandemic was to blame, instead citing shockwaves from Ukraine and Republican obstruction. "Under my plan for

June is the month during which we’re inundated with LGBTQ+++ Pride. You can’t get away from it. (snip) What gets lost in all of this is the day-to-day reality of the LGBTQ+++ lifestyle. In honor of Pride, I thought I’d share some of the realities with you, just to round out the experience. (snip) Bathhouses and orgies, through sheer volume, are not just impersonal, but depersonalize the men involved (snip) For lesbians, the problem is a different one: The death of the libido, something that, when properly and respectfully used, is one of Nature’s or God’s little gift to humans.

Caterpillar Inc. said Tuesday it will move its global headquarters from Illinois to an existing divisional office in Irving, Texas, in the Dallas-Forth Worth area, in another blow to the Chicago area, which last month lost the Boeing Co. headquarters. The move is “in the best strategic interest of the company,” Chief Executive Jim Umpleby said in a statement. The heavy-machinery maker has had a presence in Texas since the 1960s, it said. Even with the move, Illinois has the largest concentration of Caterpillar employees anywhere in the world, the company said. The headquarters was historically in downstate Peoria, Ill.
Biden’s Approval Rating Is Now Lowest
In Gallup’s History

On day 487 in office, President Joe Biden set a new record. He has the lowest approval rating of all presidents at this point in their presidencies since Gallup started tracking this in 1945. According to Gallup’s Presidential Job Approval Center, just 41% approve of the job Biden is doing. That’s worse than Gerald Ford, or Lyndon Johnson, or even Jimmy Carter on day 487. Much worse than Ronald Reagan, the Bushes, Bill Clinton, or Barack Obama. To add insult to his injury, Biden’s approval rating is now lower than Trump’s was at this point in Trump’s first term. Biden’s oh-so-presidential response to his cratering support: he is “seething.”

Here we go. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Tuesday said he will likely vote for the gun control legislation that 10 Republicans agreed to over the weekend. “For myself, I’m comfortable with the framework and if the legislation ends up reflecting the framework, I’ll be supportive,” McConnell told reporters on Tuesday. McConnell is the 11th Republican senator to announce support for the gun control measure which means the Democrats easily have enough votes to overcome the filibuster. RINOs like McConnell, Lindsey Graham, Collins, Toomey and others always fold to Democrat demands.

Journalist Rebecca Traister set out to write a profile of the oldest sitting U.S. senator, Dianne Feinstein of California, who turns 89 on June 22. And while Traister's feature piece does center on Feinstein's long and storied career, it also evokes questions about the senator's cognitive health. NPR's All Things Considered spoke with Traister, a writer for The Cut, about a worrying call she had with Feinstein two days after the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas. "It felt to me to be deeply disconnected from the very urgent and chilling realities that we are very much in the midst of,"

A leftover from Friday, made more noteworthy by the fact that Murdoch’s *other* New York paper also ran an editorial that was harshly critical of Trump on Friday night. And apparently Murdoch-owned Fox News aired this morning’s January 6 hearing, including the testimony of former Decision Desk chief Chris Stirewalt defending the network’s infamous early call of Arizona for Biden on election night 2020. Maybe that’s all a coincidence, a nod to the fact that even major righty media can’t completely ignore the hearings. But with rumors swirling that Trump might announce his 2024 candidacy soon and that Team DeSantis is eyeing a primary fight,
