Former President Donald Trump is intensifying his attacks on Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, calling him disloyal and saying that his political career would have been over had he not endorsed his ultimately successful 2018 campaign. “He was dead as a dog, he was a dead politician. He would have been working perhaps for a law firm or doing something else,” Trump told a small group of reporters aboard his plane on Monday afternoon en route to Iowa, where he was to make an appearance that evening. Asked if he regretted endorsing DeSantis for governor in 2018, Trump responded: “Yeah maybe, this guy was dead. He was dead as a doornail.

Once again, Trump can't resist being an egocentric pompous rear end. Doesn't anyone in his inner circle have the ability to temper his comments?

I suspect Trump is aware of where DeSantis is really coming from. No one gets this far nationally so fast. I like the guy but am suspicious of all his successes when no one else has been able to pull it off. Besides, I really think DeSantis might be Trump's VP choice. Time will tell.

Trump is campaigning for DeSantis by continually bringing him up as a real contender in the presidential race that DeSantis has not actually entered. It's irrelevant if Trump saved DeSantis from cheating in Florida. How does that cause others to turn on DeSantis?

By Trump’s own words, he is telling everyone he’s afraid DeSantis might get the nomination. Please, Donald, hammer on the evil democrats and you’ll probably easily win the nomination again.

Just Trump's normal line of political trash talk. He did not "lash out." He does this with all the competition at the presidential level. I think he does it to amuse himself.

Donald, you were a good President because you got things done. Your personal attacks gain you nothing. In 2016, you won in part because people hated Hillary. Don't make the mistake she made by insulting thousands of voters.

I don’t know about you but loyalty means a lot to me. It says everything about someone’s character. Trump is right and you all know it. He saved DeSantis’s bacon in his run for governor. Goody two shoes, DeSantis is annoying too. He is very sanctimonious which is really off putting to people. Is he going to carry this attitude into the Presidential race should he win the nomination? If so, democrats will quickly destroy him or is it just an act to try and peel off the pearl clutchers in the Republican Party? If you look around this political climate and believe taking the high road is going to defeat these demonic anti-God, anti-American orcs posing as humans, think again. We have seen exactly what these people are made of and it is unbelievably evil. They do not want to face someone who will stand tall and face them down and call them and their destructive policies out every single day. They abandoned the Marquess de Queensbury rules long ago. We are literally fighting to save the country from the most devastating political ideology known to man and it is destroying us. If we go to war with the army we have, I want a warrior, battle hardened and ready for the fight. This is not time to support a guy who is being bought and paid for by the very people who got the Republican Party into this mess by being backstabbing liars. We all know what happens to candidates who throw in with these people. They stay bought by the same group that despises we the people. Their support of DeSantis is nothing more than a desperate self-preservation of the status quo. You might want to think twice before you abandon Trump because we know he can produce for the American people. I trust him to do right by the country and its people. After all the deceit, incompetence and failure to keep promises by establishment politicians, trust mean everything. If you are honest, we all know that DeSantis is being disloyal and arrogant. If he really had the country’s best interest at heart, he would support President Trump and defeat this horrific party. Trump has a proven record of accomplishment as President. He has proven foreign policy success. Most of all he had the determination and focus to stay the course when the sharks were circling he and his family every single day in the hope of drawing blood. He took it all, worked harder than any President in my lifetime, and every policy was geared to make this country great. Until someone comes along who can top his proven record, I am trusting Trump.

Oh please......Loyalty is very important. Where is Trump's loyalty? DeSantis hasn't entered the race, has done nothing but be an excellent governor and troll Democrats on a Trump level. His reward, to be insulted on a near daily basis by the loser of the last presidential election and two previous mid-terms. Loyalty has it's limits.

Trump says things with the intention and purpose to get things done and to expose his opponents. He's addicted to strategizing to snare and control for an advantage. He's an expert in the field and has a weasel-like behavior. His method is an issue but I'll still vote for him.

I will vote for Ron DeSantis if he is the nominee. I will vote for Donald Trump if he is the nominee. It is tiresome watching Republican campaigns smearing each other. Sheesh, we get the smearing from the Democrats, we certainly don't need another dose with the same party campaigns. If you don't think that Democrats smear Republicans, how is that "Donald Trump is the blame" for the bank collapses? The smearing is getting old and makes them look immature.

#9 is correct, as is #12… Go back and re-read, then pray for righteousness to return to America… President Trump is a gift from The Almighty, God. If you doubt this, read ‘The Light and the Glory,’ by Peter Marshall, who did his research from early Puritan churches’ history and first-person historical letters on America’s founding principles. You will learn the prayers and the history of the Bible President Trump held up in front of St. John’s Church, across from the White House in Lafayette Park that fateful day… Then thank Christopher Columbus [you will learn who sponsored his heroic voyage] and his God-given direction, which personally, I believe he realized from daily study of the book of Proverbs… TBIYTC

Right when I think possibly Trump has learned his lesson, he steps on another rake. Like #1, I have defended Trump and still do, but of all his weaknesses, this is his worst. My prediction is Trump gets the nomination, then loses (with my vote) because of independents not being able to put up with 4 more years of his weaknesses. #19, ever consider he is the antichrist?

A couple of more comments. I agree that Donald Trump as President of USA did some impressive things but if he is going to hold up a Bible in front of St. John’s Church across from the White House in Lafayette Park, he ought to know that he should be giving God the glory not himself concerning the governor's race in 2018. Also, I agree that Donald Trump had a lot of successes as President of the USA but Fauci as the "go to" person during the 2020 pandemic was like putting the fox in charge of the hen house, so to speak. Yes, he had several successes but he also had some decision fall flat. . .

Trump is not listening to any of his advisors. He needs to stay quiet and go about worrying about himself. If I were in his position I would make a deal with DeSantis to have him in his cabinet the two years after he completes his current term and have him gain international experience in some capacity. I want DeSantis here in Florida. he hasn't finished cleaning up the wokeness.

DeSantis is great. It's not his time. He will be PeeTaped w/in 24 hours when he defeats Donald J Trump. His Mueler investigation will cost about $34 mil. When it is over they will get him for "Obstruction," which means offering a defense. DeSantis is not a billionaire and cannot withstand the lawfare that President Trump has batted away. Trump is right that he is the only candidate that can possibly win, and in office is the only person who can actually expose the deep state and possibly defeat it. Or at least empower true patriots to confront it. Desantis is solidifying his bonafides as a culture warrior in a must win state. That's his job until Donald J Trump reinstates free and honest elections in this country, so that DeSantis can run and win the presidency thereafter. Bc unless President Trump defeats the election thieves, neither DeSantsi nor any other repub can be elected POTUS. You can ask Katie Hobbs.

The best thing to do is allow Trump another term as President with Desantis as Vice- President then with that experience, Desantis can serve 8 years as President. 12 years of Trump and Desantis could do some good, infighting makes losers of us all

So Trump is admitting he made a mistake in endorsing DeSantis? He would rather that DeSantis had lost? With this attack Trump admits to having bad judgment. Not a good look for someone running for president. As to loyalty, surely Trump jests. DeSantis is probably grateful for Trump’s endorsement but he owes no loyalty to him as far as his political career progresses. Trump’s anti DeSantis antics are getting old fast.

Trump looks in a mirror and sees a bull in a china shop. He likes what he sees. He disrupts things and gets all the attention. He knows what he is doing. He is also competent at governing. Trump leaves plenty of openings for opponents to overtake him. It speaks volumes about the quality of the opposition that nobody could. Will DeSantis be any different? Time will tell.

As with the rest of the United States armed forces, the Air Force missed its recruiting goals in 2022 and they are on track to fall short again this year by at least 10%. This is a particularly dangerous time to be understaffed when so many of our resources are going toward training and equipping the Ukrainian military and we’re teetering on the edge of possible conflicts with Russia and/or China. So what are our flyboys (and ladies) to do? Whoever is currently in charge of this problem inside the Pentagon thinks they’ve struck on the answer.

Senator James Lankford (R., Okla.) pressed Yellen on the matter during a Senate Finance Committee hearing held days after Silicon Valley Bank collapsed. “It has been reported publicly that SVB had a large number of Chinese investors that are there, including some companies that were directly connected to the Chinese Communist Party,” Lankford said. “So what I’m asking is: will my banks in Oklahoma pay a special assessment to be able to make Chinese investors whole in Silicon Valley Bank?”

First Republic Bank, facing a crisis of confidence from investors and customers, is actively discussing options for a lifeline — including a takeover, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Both Fitch Ratings and S&P Global Ratings downgraded First Republic Bank's credit rating on Wednesday on concerns that depositors could pull their cash from the bank.

The U.S. military on Thursday morning released dramatic video that it said showed a Russian fighter jet intercepting and then colliding with the American MQ-9 "Reaper" drone that crashed into the Black Sea on Tuesday. The U.S. has accused Russia of operating its warplane in an "unsafe and unprofessional" manner during the encounter near Ukraine's Russian-occupied Crimean Peninsula. On Wednesday, a senior Russian official said Moscow would try to recover the wreckage of the drone. U.S. Army Gen.

In a joint press conference with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on Wednesday, General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, attempted to deescalate when asked if Russia’s downing of a U.S. drone was an act of war. Both Austin and Milley committed to continue flying and operating wherever international law allows, calling upon Russian leaders to operate their military aircraft in a safe, professional, and nonaggressive manner. The incident Tuesday involved a Russian Su-27 aircraft striking the propeller of a U.S. MQ-9 Reaper drone, which U.S. officials said was on a routine mission in international airspace when two Russian jets attempted to intercept it.

Ron DeSantis is causing waves after answering a questionnaire on the conflict between Ukraine and Russia. Fox News host Tucker Carlson sent the inquiry to all of the announced and presumed 2024 Republican presidential candidates, asking them what their views on the current war are. DeSantis bucked the establishment trend on both sides of the aisle and didn’t spew proclamations about defending democracy (which is definitively not why we are involved in Ukraine). Instead, he pointedly said it is not in US interests to become “further entangled” in the fight, which he described as a “territorial dispute.”

Early in the morning hours of a polar vortex in January 2019, FOX's "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett claimed two White supremacist Trump supporters attacked him near his Chicago apartment in a racially-motivated hate crime that would soon incite outrage from activists and the media. It's the "hate crime" that dominated headlines, but facts proved none of it was true. In December 2021, the now-40-year-old actor and singer was convicted of five felony counts of disorderly conduct. One year ago, he was sentenced in March 2022 to 150 days in county jail. Brothers Abimbola "Bola" and Olabinjo "Ola" Osundairo, Smollett's accomplices in the act, finally broke their silence

After months of near-silence and innuendo, Florida Gov. and GOP presidential hopeful Ron DeSantis decided to speak about Ukraine, removing all doubt about his position. While his statement on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show makes a handful of valid points, it is ridden with a fundamental misunderstanding of the war and US geopolitical interests. First, the good. DeSantis is correct to criticize the Biden administration’s lack of clear objectives in its support for “as long as it takes,” which is a recipe for a long and intractable conflict — which Americans would be right to reject.

On Tuesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) appeared on FNC’s “Hannity” to react to the alleged Russian jet-U.S. drone collision near Crimea over the Black Sea earlier in the day. The South Carolina U.S. Senator asked how former President Ronald Reagan would have handled it and suggested the United States take a more forceful approach with its response.“They shot down our drone. What should our answer be?” host Sean Hannity asked.“Well, we should hold them accountable and say that if you ever get near another U.S. flying in international waters, your airplane would be shot down,” Graham responded. “What would Ronald Reagan do right now? He would start shooting Russian planes down

Some electric vehicle (EV) manufacturers are scrapping the AM radio from their cars, claiming safety concerns. Although conservative talk radio dominates AM radio ratings, it is also considered a critical safety tool, as it is one of the primary ways that federal, state, and local officials communicate with the public during natural disasters and other emergencies. Automakers such as Ford and Tesla have ditched the AM radio from their newer EV models, arguing that the motors on EVs interfere with AM frequencies, creating buzzing and signal fading, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal.

The City Council of Washington, D.C., recently approved legislation to reduce penalties for violent crimes, despite a recent surge of murders, carjackings, and robberies in the city. It was in keeping with similar measures approved in recent years in cities around the country to defund the police, reduce cash bail, and eliminate penalties for minor crimes like shoplifting and drug possession. Congress rightly overruled the measure under the city's home rule charter, but it was a sign of what's to come from D.C. city government.

Greta “Damien” Thunberg was forced to delete a tweet predicting the world could no longer be saved in 2023. So why did she delete this tweet? Because we’re already a quarter of the way through 2023, and if the world can no longer be saved, if it’s too late to reverse climate change (which is a hoax), Greta and her fascist agenda are no longer relevant. After all, if it’s too late to save the world, we might as well party on, right? Here’s what happened… In June of 2018, the high school dropout tweeted a quote from an article predicting, “climate change [which is a hoax] will wipe out all of humanity

In a joint press conference with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on Wednesday, General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, attempted to deescalate when asked if Russia’s downing of a U.S. drone was an act of war. Both Austin and Milley committed to continue flying and operating wherever international law allows, calling upon Russian leaders to operate their military aircraft in a safe, professional, and nonaggressive manner. The incident Tuesday involved a Russian Su-27 aircraft striking the propeller of a U.S. MQ-9 Reaper drone, which U.S. officials said was on a routine mission in international airspace when two Russian jets attempted to intercept it. The unmanned drone was diverted

On March 7, a draft research report was released, co-authored by Sean Kirkpatrick, director of the Pentagon’s All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), and Abraham Loeb, chairman of Harvard University’s astronomy department. The report discusses the physical limitations of unidentified aerial phenomena and suggests that aliens may be visiting our solar system and deploying smaller probes similar to NASA’s planetary exploration missions. Dr. Kirkpatrick is a highly experienced expert in scientific and technical intelligence.

Amid the litany of weather reports and coverage of a U.S. drone being downed in the Black Sea after colliding with a Russian jet and recent woke banks going under, Wednesday’s CBS Mornings made it interesting when they spent a few minutes fawning over San Francisco moving closer to offering $5 million, guaranteed incomes of $97,000, and homes for the price of $1 to Black residents as reparations. This was despite the fact that, as they admitted, a Hoover Institution estimate found it could cost San Franciscans of other races (and presumably those in poverty) $600,000 in new taxes. Talk about a case of mass racial arson.

Pentagon officials said in a draft document last week that aliens could be visiting our solar system and releasing smaller probes like missions conducted by NASA when studying other planets. A draft research report authored by Sean Kirkpatrick, the director of the Pentagon’s All-Domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO), and Abraham Loeb, chairman of Harvard University’s astronomy department was released on March 7 and focuses on the physical constraints of unidentified aerial phenomena. “…An artificial interstellar object could potentially be a parent craft that releases many small probes during its close passage to Earth, an operational construct not too dissimilar from NASA missions,” the report read.

Needless to say, I don’t often write about such things as healthy diets and lifestyles — which is not to say I don’t adhere to both — but when the World Health Organization calls on member governments to pass strict limitations on what I can eat and how much of it, it gets my attention — and should get yours, as well. Again, my stance, particularly in this case, shouldn’t be confused with opposition to the current culprit in the spotlight: salt. Specifically, excessive consumption of salt. While I agree in principle with the notion, I don’t agree that it’s the job of the federal government to look
