DeSantis 104 – Pay to Play, Florida
Govt Officials Asking Tallahassee Lobbyists
to Donate to Ron DeSantis Election Effort

Original Article

According to Florida lobbyists, they have been contacted by state employees with instructions to send payments to the campaign of Ron DeSantis. The ethical problems within this effort are numerous and could potentially be legally liable for DeSantis government officials participating. At best, the issue is extreme swamp behavior, where DeSantis officials are pressuring lobbyists in Florida to donate to the DeSantis 2024 election campaign or their advocacy may be disregarded in state budget considerations. When state employees use their offices to solicit payments to political entities, the legal issues become very murky. Then again, this is swamp behavior – and when you hire the swamp to push your agenda,

You will notice this article quotes an NBC News article, which fails to identify its sources, and we all know how reliable NBC News is.

I reject any politician who thinks that they can get away with dodgy behavior. DeSantis and the Bush cabal are getting real close to strike three with me. I don't care if this is in the regular media, because once in awhile they actually let real nuggets of honesty slip through. It probably serves their agenda to let truth come out.

I wish Staff would consider banning posts from Sundance at Conservative Treehouse. Nobody knows who this guy is or what his true credentials or motivations may be. I have long wondered if he is some kind of government agitator whose job is to trigger conservatives without ever identifying his sources or how he comes by the knowledge he claims to have. I wouldn't take anything he writes as true.

#3, how about all of us using our freedom of choice to read what we want to read, and allow others to do the same? Freedom of choice is beginning to be in pretty short supply for conservatives these days without requesting that longtime conservative sites be banned here of all places.

President Trump was not an elected official nor Governor of NYC when he was building his projects - straw man argument. As a FL taxpayer and someone who supported RDS over Adam Putnam for Governor (a race RDS was losing handily until he begged DJT to intercede); and again last year, I am more than a little disturbed by his behavior of late. He has travelled around this country and the world meeting with leaders under the guise of a book tour at FL taxpayers expense. He recently had the FL legislature pass a bill in direct conflict with Florida's Government in the Sunshine laws sealing all his travel records so the costs involved in these junkets will never see the light of day. Up until a few weeks ago, FL. required the Governor to resign if he chose to run for higher office and, voila, legislation was introduced to remove that obstacle for him. If he had an ounce of integrity he could have vetoed both bills because the establishment Rs in the FL house would have easily overridden his veto, instead he showed his true colors. If a D Governor had done what he has done - those on this page denouncing Sundance and Conservative Treehouse for pointing out the obvious would be apoplectic over it, and rightly so. If you don't like President Trump, that's your prerogative - but the slick carny maneuvers I have been seeing from the Governor should never be excused or dismissed because he happens to have R after his name.

The article states, "NBC News spoke with 10 Republican lobbyists in Florida, all of whom said they couldn’t remember being solicited for donations so overtly by administration officials — especially at a time when the governor still has to act on the state budget." What NBC news reporter, and what 10 Republicans told NBC news the same thing about not remembering being solicited so overtly when the state budget had not been settled? What does the state budget have to do with soliciting for campaign contributions? Is that supposed to make sense? DeSantis just announced, there are those hired to seek funding.

#3, By your reasoning, maybe all commenters should be banned. After all we don’t know much about each other on this site and what our motivations are. We could…gasp!…be democrat plants! Oh dear, it’s Pearl clutching time! Seriously, articles are posted here from all kinds of sources. You read them evaluate them and then make an opinion on them. Restricting information is not the way to have a conversation because we all differ on what is valuable or complete rubbish. We just have to agree to disagree when something ruffles our feathers. Unless it is a proven a totally unreliable source that is not truthful, bring it on and we can decide. Banning something we don’t not like, is not consistent with the First Amendment.

Wait..... we are disturbed by DeSantis behavior, but Trump gets a pass? Trump is out there daily making demonstrably false claims about DeSantis, but DeSantis is to blame? Trump makes at least one idiotic statement every week. But we can count on his slavish boot licking it's Trump or we burn down the country supporters to excuse his behavior or deflect at every opportunity. Explain how they are any different than the Obama syncophants.

# 8, no straw man argument here if the issue is character, integrity and "true colors". And although Trump's endorsement was key in securing the 2018 nomination for RDS, that doesn't mean that the latter owes the former any form of special undying loyalty. You can find "disturbing" behavior in anyone's actions if you look for it hard enough. As one who has voted twice for both men I am not inclined to participate in a (Democrat pleasing) mission of destruction against either. Unfortunately, the myopic and conspiracy-minded Sundance is not so constrained.

Sundance makes a lot of interesting observations. But he seems to have DeSantis Derangement Syndrome. He’s perpetually offended because RDS is playing hardball to win. It isn’t always pretty, but without winning, nothing else matters in the presidential contest.

Sundance makes some good points here. It's been apparent since Bush 43 that the RNC and DNC are to the political-industrial complex what Coke and Pepsi are to the soft drink industry - the money belongs to them and no ousiders are allowed. But after witnessing what today's democrat party can do to the country when in control of the Executive Branch, we need to win the White House in 2024. Period. So do we stand on our principles, show up on Election Day, and go for broke with Trump (whom the electoral machine may be able to keep from ever winning again) or hop in bed with the statists and hope to get a watered-down GOPe candidate elected to at least stop some of the madness? I don't think I can answer that right now but we're still 18 months out, and a lot is going to happen in the interim. I've checked my chin strap and shall remain vigilant.

Last week, I worked with a whistleblower to expose the child sex-change program at Texas Children’s Hospital. Executives had promised to stop such procedures, but, as the medical records demonstrate, this was not done—doctors secretly continued to provide puberty blockers and other hormones to children between the ages of 11 and 17. Within days of the story’s publication, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton launched an official investigation, saying that “children are not to be treated as science experiments.” And state legislators secured the votes to pass a bipartisan bill, SB 14, that would outlaw all so-called “gender-affirming care” for minors.

One of the most maddening things about modern culture is the whole issue of pronouns. At the very least, it’s annoying that some people trumpet their pronouns, choosing to base their identity on how people address them when talking about them behind their backs. But it’s even worse the way some people freak out over people using the wrong pronouns as if other people have nothing better to do than keep up with what everybody’s pronouns are at any given moment. Prounoun obsession is the ultimate form of narcissism; it’s entirely self-focused to think that everyone should bend to the whim of what you want to call yourself.

If the shocking 2016 presidential election of Donald J. Trump taught us anything, it should be that voters can still be unpredictable and unpollable, and that millions of them believe that the entrenched elites from both political parties no longer hear their voices or speak for them. Voters are continually seeking a new champion. Will Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. become such a champion? I believe so — at least as far as the Democratic primary process is concerned. When that process is final and all the votes from the primaries and caucuses have been tabulated, I believe Kennedy will emerge as the Democratic nominee for president in 2024.
