      Here while Tgca sucks up to his hero Putin on the other thread.

      The Russian hoaxer told us this was all normal.

      Jonathan Turley

      The 911 tape was just played. It is perfectly bizarre. Pelosi is clearly trying to convey alarm without angering DePape who tells him to put the phone down…

    4. Tgca says:

      Uh oh!

      China sycophant Jadon hardest hit!

      GOP senators put forth bill, the “China Trade Relations Act,” to strip China of its Permanent Normal Trade Relations status. This legislation would require China to obtain Most Favored Nation status through annual presidential approval.

      The CCP cares about one thing: undermining America. There is no reason why the United States should be helping a communist government’s trade operation through preferential treatment and ‘most-favored-nation’ status. That is absolutely absurd when they are working against us. It is time to put American interests first, not the CCP, and reverse this antiquated law,” said Scott.

      The Chinese Communist Party is not America’s friend, and it is not a force for good in the world. From human rights abuses to the theft of U.S. jobs and intellectual property, the CCP must be held accountable. One of the most effective ways to push back on the CCP is to enact Senator Cotton’s bill to end China’s Permanent Normal Trade Relations status,” said Budd.

    5. Tgca says:

      Commie lover Mitchie will vote against any bill holding China accountable because he and his corrupt wife, you know, the cabinet Secretary Chao, investigated by her department’s IG during Trump’s administration who recommended two criminal inquiries against her for corruption and abuse of power but that Mitchie got thrown out with fellow China sycophants Biden’ DOJ in early 2021.

      Had Trump remained POTUS chances are Barr or any successor DOJ would have followed up on such charges.

      But I guess fair is fair. If DOJ wasn’t going to charge Hillary for breaking the law as a cabinet member, then why charge Chao either?

      2024 Biden vs DeSantis Crosstabs

      (R) DeSantis: 45% (+3)
      (D) Biden: 42%

      (R) DeSantis: 48% (+16)
      (D) Biden: 32%

      (R) DeSantis: 47% (+6)
      (D) Biden: 41%

      @EchelonInsights | D39/R36/I25 (D+3)
      Jan 23-25 | MoE +/- 3.9% | 1,024 LV

      – This won’t make Jason fraud happy. He thinks Republicans don’t need the suburbs.

    7. Robbie says:

      As someone who lives in Kentucky, I am not surprised Beshear sits in such a good position ten months from election day.

      Despite being so strong across the state and dominating the state legislature, Republicans barely lifted a finger to criticize Beshear for his authoritarian Covid lockdowns that lasted 15 months.

      The race will be close on election day simply because Republicans are not at parity with Democrats in registration, but none of the candidates are dynamos, especially Cameron, and none seem to grasp that denting Beshear’s standing through continuous attacks ads is necessary.

    8. Tina says:

      Ronna Romney “wins” again at the Rnc.

      Desantis endorsement was too little too late.

      Dhillon was the best of the worst, however.

    9. Paul says:

      Beshear for President.

    10. Paul says:

      Tgca, the appeaser, doesn’t mind whatever Russia does. Go to hell, Tgca.

    11. JeffP says:

      Incompetence Wins! The RNC is lost. Corrupt and lost. They have ZERO pulse on the people they proclaim to represent. The people in these voting positions have no courage and are useless. If McKissick is co-chair, you can REALLY kiss it goodbye.

    12. Paul says:

      JeffP: I was rooting on Lindell. I think the election was rigged!!!!

    13. jason says:

      I was hoping for Lindell too.

      It would shake things up and Amoral Scumbag would have jumped in front of a freight train.


    14. jason says:

      China sycophant Jadon hardest hit!”

      Let’s see if it passes first.

    15. jason says:

      Are we talking about Trump appointee Elaine Chao?

    16. jason says:

      He thinks Republicans don’t need the suburbs”

      I think Amoral Scumbag will find a post where I ever said that the same day he will discover the real killer of Jeb!’s candidacy.

    17. Gordon Allen says:

      Nobody contibute or support the RNC at all.
      They’re the problem ( or one of them),and like many GOP leaders not in the least reflective of the grass root GOP.
      The air in Washington must both stink and corrupt.

    18. Tgca says:


      Agreed! She failed miserably in a party leadership roll. If the GOP loses in 2024 and Dems get to stack the courts to further dwindle our rights away, I don’t want to hear complaints from the GOP.

      The GOP brings this on itself by continuing to elect losers like her and Mitch.

      These people are interested in themselves and not common sense.

      I suggest people STOP donations to the GOP. I won’t give one penny. They haven’t learned their lessons yet.

    19. Tina says:

      It’s one step forward (McCarthy) and two steps back with Biden Beotch and Ronna Romney.

      Will Biden’s Beotch sabotage the Ky Governors race, like he did 2020 and 2022?

    20. Paul says:

      Stack the courts. Stack the f&*ing courts.

    21. Paul says:

      20. Yes, he will. Yes, he will.

    22. Tgca says:

      Hey Paul

      Do you even know the definition of appeaser?

      No one here is supporting Russia here. Every posts proves that.

      If my posts suggest I support Russia because I criticize corruption in Ukraine, then clearly since your support of Dems, you support pedos since a significant group of Dems are child grooming and infatuating themselves with the s*xualization of children.

      See how that works when you draw conclusions?

      So like all pedos, you should rot in Hell.

    23. Tgca says:


      So there you go folks!

      Paul wants to stack the courts with pedo sympathizers and destroy children by messing with their heads and mutilating their bodies.

      I hope Paul doesn’t have young children. God knows what he’ll stand by and let others do to them.

    24. jason says:

      No one here is supporting Russia here”

      Zzzzzz…… hilarious coming from Putin’s chief propagandist here.

    25. Gordon Allen says:

      BTW Ronna was another idiotic selection by Trump.
      When you go 3 for 100 maybe somebody with a better record of appointments should be selected
      A Lot better.
      Just saying.

    26. Tgca says:


      Yes, Trump and Bush appointee Chao who had DOT investigation where a GOP appointed IG determined she was involved in corruption and abuse of power involving her family and sent 2, not 1, but 2 criminal referrals to DOJ. But they got quashed by Biden’s DOJ just like Hillary’s.

      Even Trump makes mistakes. Think Sessions, Bolton, Scaramucci, etc.

      Next question?

    27. Tgca says:


      So says the corrupt Zelenskyy LAPDOG Jadon who supports not only corrupt Zelensky but commie China despite a worse or equal human rights record than Russia.

      I’m on record with my posts being for dispelling Pootin from Ukraine. I can price that!

      You’re on record excusing China for EVERYTHING. That cn be priced too!

    28. Paul says:

      Tgca: Have you suggested a negotiated settlement where Ukraine gives up Kherson, Donetsk, Luhanks, and Zaphorozia>>>>>


    29. Paul says:


    30. Paul says:

      aka: Poecilia wingei

    31. jason says:

      This legislation would require China to obtain Most Favored Nation status through annual presidential approval.”

      Nonsense. Nobody can make long term (or even medium term) business decisions based something that is going to change at the whim of a President. Trade policy needs first to follow a governing principle, hopefully free trade, but in any event the rules should allow for long term planning and investment and not be political football.

      This is pure demagoguery a la Cotton-Perdue fiasco that was going to cut legal immigration in half and never even got a vote it was so stupid. Probably 90% of Americans support legal immigration.

      I don’t support “blanket” measures such as this just like I opposed Trump’s stupid tariff and trade wars against just about every trading partner of the US.

      I don’t oppose specific sanctions against companies that engage in slave labor or that use stolen intellectual property for example.

      But this type of bill is just a gift to the AFL-CIO agenda and will end up hurting the American consumer (and those than can least afford it) more than it will hurt China.

      In any case I don’t see it passing and it certainly wouldn’t survive Biden’s veto.

    32. Tina says:

      Looks like the desantis Twitter influencers are blaming trump for ronna Romneys reelection.

      They need to quit the divisiveness and the anti vax debacle.

    33. Paul says:

      Rona was my pick. Glad they went with that.

    34. jason says:

      I think Trump outfoxed the Golden Calf on the RNC chairman.

      Trump played coy but probably knew Ronna would win and is now taking credit for backing the winning horse.

      Meanwhile the Golden Calf endorsed Dhillon late and now is left sucking hind tit.


      “Congratulations to Ronna McDaniel on her big win for RNC Chair. Now we have to stop Democrats from cheating in elections”

    35. Gordon Allen says:

      Tina: Trump IS responsible because he appointed Rona and kept her on.
      At some point you have to point fingers where it belongs. Your hero Trump, who I supported 2017-21,has had a TERRIBLE record of appointments, a prime responsibility of an Executive…
      Please acknowledge plain facts

    36. jason says:

      Looks like the desantis Twitter influencers are blaming trump for ronna Romneys reelection.

      They need to quit the divisiveness and the anti vax debacle”

      Yep. And Trump didn’t elect Ronna. He is just acting like he did.

    37. jason says:

      Tina: Trump IS responsible because he appointed Rona and kept her on.”


      Trump has been out of office for 2 years. McDaniel was not elected by MAGAs, most of them supported Dhillon and Lindell.

    38. jason says:

      I don’t know who advised the Golden Calf on this but it was an unforced error.

    39. jason says:

      because he appointed Rona and kept her on”

      Neville Allen should go back to his magazines and video games.

      “Under RNC rules, three members from each state and U.S. territory, the state or territory’s party chair, one committeeman, and one committeewoman, cast ballots for chair, accounting for 168 votes, of which a majority is 85.”

    40. Phil says:

      Keep giving your money to the RNC, suckers. They keep blowing elections and feathering their own nests as they give the Republican voters the finger.

      Just perfect.

    41. Tina says:

      Gordon, you and the Twitter influencers need to quit the charade.

      Trump did not endorse anyone this cycle. Yes, he previously endorsed Ronna Romney. Desantis endorsement was too little too late.

      You are shooting folks who wouls generally be on your side.

      I wanted Dhillon.

    43. Tina says:

      The body cam of the Paul Piglosi matter is weird.

      Maga Hammer opens the door with one hand apparently, while holding the hammer in the other

      Paul could have easily escaped or moved forward to the officers, but he did not.

      A nice self defense strike to the chest or a push would have enabled Paul to escape.

      Paul appears to be still half out of it (awaken from sleep) and/or intoxicated.

      Maga hammer sure struck him very hard.

    44. Gordon Allen says:

      UNH poll shows DeSantis 42 Trump 30. In 2016 Florida followed New Hampshire.
      The State polls consistently show different results than some ” national polls”.
      DeSantis is the clear winner on the RNC chairman; he supported the rank and file favorite,whereas Trump appointed the ” Establishment choice and didn’t disavow it.
      DeSantis is playing chess,and nobody else is,or can figure out what chess is.
      Having brains is better than not.

    45. jason says:

      Bitter, the Anti Christ lived in West Manchester Township. That is on the West side of York, not East.


    46. jason says:

      hereas Trump appointed the ” Establishment choice”

      Hey, moron, it isn’t an appointed position, you are a certified dumbass.

      Btw, I supported Dhillon myself.

      But Trump didn’t appoint anybody, it is an elected position, and he didn’t endorse anybody either.

      DeSantis got outfoxed, plain and simple.

      He should have kept his mouth shut.

    47. Bitterlaw says:

      All I said was York County. You named the township. GFY

      “Nonsense. Nobody can make long term (or even medium term) business decisions based something that is going to change at the whim of a President. Trade policy needs first to follow a governing principle, hopefully free trade, but in any event the rules should allow for long term planning and investment and not be political football.”

      -Key part: “Trade policy needs first to follow a governing principle, hopefully free trade,”

      Has China EVER engaged in free trade?

      Or shall I put it properly……”free trade”?

      Free trade is a great governing principle. A nation should adjust its governing policy when other nations, like China, do not reciprocate after an extended period of time (it’s been 50 years since Nixon went to China, and around 40 since the CCP liberalized their economy!!!!).

      Principles are not open-ended, but countries shouldn’t commit suicide to keep them when others show they won’t reciprocate.

    49. NYCmike says:


      Could you try to post these supposed DeSantis-Twitter-bots?

      How do you know they are affiliated with him? Is that woman that was previously his spokesperson leading it?

    50. Tina says:

      His track record ain’t great.

      ?? Wayne DuPree ?

      Jan 26
      Ron DeSantis backs Harmeet. That’s the kiss of death. None of his national midterm endorsements won FYI

    51. NYCmike says:

      “He should have kept his mouth shut.”

      -He had a preference, and he lost.

      Not a big deal in the long run.

    52. jason says:

      All I said was York County. You named the township. GFY’

      Ok, the “Bad York” brand bait worked, Ma.

    53. jason says:

      “He should have kept his mouth shut.”

      -He had a preference, and he lost.

      Not a big deal in the long run.”

      No, not a big deal, and maybe a lesson learned. Pick fights you can win and don’t endorse a loser the day before the election.

    54. JeffP says:

      Trump better get whatever is keeping him from posting on Twitter taken care of or he is going to be extremely limited in getting his message out. Facebook and Instagram will help but Elon Musks Twitter is the hot thing for politicos and influencers of consequence. I saw almost Zero coverage regarding his Ukraine War Truth Social post. He also being seen as cozy with establishment types. From what I am seeing in my feed Trump is getting blamed ….like it or not… for RONA. He publicly endorsed the establishment vice chair the other day. Which was RONAS choice. With Newscorp against him he will not get the air time or favorable coverage like 2016. Noem, DeSantis, Haley, Pence, and Pompeo are on Faux all the time now.

      I don’t think anyone wants to be the first to declare for 2024 and go against Trump one on one. Probably going to be a group effort to take him out from the names listed above. We will see.

      Have any Governors or Senators endorsed Trump yet? I know a couple congressmen have.

    55. NYCmike says:

      -The only thing surprising about this is that Robbie hadn’t posted the CNN attack against DeSantis first. The MSM must be worried about him……so it will only be a short time until Robbie starts calling him the same names he used against him in 2018.

    56. JeffP says:

      57 Good analysis…

    57. NYCmike says:

      “Could you try to post these supposed DeSantis-Twitter-bots?”



      Thanks in advance.

    58. jason says:

      Free trade is a great governing principle”

      NYC believes in free trade.

      He just doesn’t believe in free trade with China, Mexico, Canada, Europe, South America, Asia and Africa.

    59. jason says:

      I have no problem with the article.

      Says we need to provide 300-500 tanks. Fine with me.

      Says Russia is the immediate threat, China a longer term threat. Fine with me.

      And best of all it cuts Mr. Escalation JeffP a new a-hole.

      I could have written this.

      “But forget those lame cries of “Escalation!” by those who would be happy to see Ukraine wiped from the map. Remember, the first country to send modern, frontline main battle tanks (MBT) to Ukraine was Russia — and Putin ordered them in by the thousands. If the Kremlin doesn’t like MBTs in Ukraine, they could fix that situation in almost nothing flat by ordering their own back to Russia, where they belong.”

    60. Tina says:

      You presume/assume that faux news was for him in 2016.

      Do you remember mayhem Kelly?

      Britt Hume

      Brett whatever his name

    61. Tina says:

      And it’s not the same Fox News

      They have lost some viewership

      And are a network that promotes open borders, the war mongers, and the Ukraine grift.

    62. Tina says:

      Faux also houses Paullo Ryano.

      They are gop-e

      Pro ccp

      Pro amnesty

      Sycophants for Zelenskyy

    63. NYCmike says:

      “He just doesn’t believe in free trade with China, Mexico, Canada, Europe, South America, Asia and Africa.”

      -That’s clearly a lie.

      Definitely NOT with China, but all of the other places are usually willing to work with us and have in some small ways opened their borders to more American trade.

      Of course, for a developing nation with a tiny GDP, a normal, sane and rational person is willing to give them somewhat better terms….but once a country reaches a certain level, like China has, a normal, sane and rational person would look to make sure that the terms of the relationship are put on a more even level.

      Normal, sane and rational.

    64. Tina says:

      Remember it was faux s directive to mayhem Kelly to get trump out of the race after the fist debate.

      This is the debate where trump said “only rosey odumbell.”

      Who from faux asked that question? It was mayhem

      Who posted somebody will be out of the race after tonite debate

      Mayhem Kelly who was their top journalist.

    65. JeffP says:

      67 Tina yes I remember that. The ratings were great for the live rallies though :).

      Trump is being destroyed on Twitter regarding RONA today. Many are blaming him. Funny thing I think she and the establishment prefer DeSantis or Haley anyway. She is a snake and is incompetent.

    66. JeffP says:

      65 Tina I hear you.

    67. Bitterlaw says:

      So anytime I address Jason, he responds with a stupid post. Damn. I thought an A-hole would be more open.

    68. Bitterlaw says:

      Zzzzzzzzzz. Kelly asked a legitimate question . I said it then and I stand by it. I guess Tina wanted Trump to be coronated as soon as he came down the escalator.

    69. jason says:

      So anytime I address Jason, he responds with a stupid post. ”

      The “It was on the other side of York” was an obvious bait post referencing Good and Bad Philadelphia.

      You fell for it and now say it is stupid?


    70. Bitterlaw says:

      But only you and the sad little clown refer to Good and Bad Philadelphia. I don’t. Don’t get tight with sad little clowns.

    71. Bitterlaw says:

      When I posted the link I thought of referring to Bad York but decided against it. The Good/Bad references are stupid.

    72. Bitterlaw says:

      I can hardly wait to take Jason to dinner in Philadelphia so I can then read him post about how it sucked.

    73. Bitterlaw says:

      CSpan-3 has an interesting series of lectures every week on the Civil War. Unfortunately, it uses terms like “Confederates” and “Southerners” instead of the proper term of “Pro-slavery traitors.”

    74. jason says:

      Bitter invented the Good and Bad Philadelphia BS. I am only commenting on it.


    75. jason says:

      The Good/Bad references are stupid.”

      I agree, but you own it.

      I am the one that says the stats for Philadelphia pertain to ONE city.

      You are the one that claims there is a Good and a Bad Philadelphia.

      Nobody else, btw. Tgca mocks you for the same reason.

    76. Bitterlaw says:

      Lies. Jason invented the terms “Bad Philadelphia” and “Good Philadelphia.” We all know it.

    77. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgca is a vile, hate-filled scumbag who parrots leftist talking points from Occupy Wall Street, Code Pink, and If Jason wants to curry his favor, so be it.

    78. Bitterlaw says:

      My wife is concerned that our remaining cat is “breathing strangely.” I guess I should have noticed his breathing months ago. He’s a cat. He eats, sleeps and does normal cat activities.

    79. Tina says:

      Jeff, I don’t like her. I never did.

      She took $$$ for election challenges in 2020 and ran with it.

      She abandoned Arizona in 2022, despite all the shenanigans in Maricopa, Run a front scandals with no auditing of ballots, and the mismatched signatures.

      But I cannot blame trump or Desantis. Perhaps, it’s the operational structure of the gop favoring Ronna Romney. That is why zeldin did not run. If you check out his tweet, he indicates that is why he didn’t.

      Imo, zeldin would have been the best choice and Dhillon as Vice Chair.

      Or Dhillon and Zeldin.

    80. Tina says:

      Maga Hammer does seem that he has sever mental health issues, in addition to drug dependency,

      That was an ugly swing he took against Piglosi.

      If they released the cam videos right away, they would have ended any misinformation.

      The 9-11 operator should be fired imo.

      You mean Jadon is being a CLOWN?

      Sorry! That moniker is already taken by one of HHR’s most distinguished posters.

      How about JESTER?

      Jadon fits well playing the “fool” for corrupt tyrants like Zelenskyy and China.

      Jadon Jester.

      Jester Jadon.

      I like it!

      So anytime I address Jason, he responds with a stupid post. Damn. I thought an A-hole would be more open.

    85. Tgca says:

      I think the senators proposing limiting China’s most favored status is an EXCELLENT idea to address their corruption and refusal to follow fair trade practices but expecting to be part of a trading pact. Won’t happen though until you get a GOP POTUS.

      Calling China’s participation in trade as free or fair trade is UDDER nonsense and a play on words.

      Saying China practices free or fair trade is like saying a trans man participating in women’s sports is fair.

      No one can realistically say it with a straight face.

    86. Tgca says:


      I think you are confusing me with members in your household who support and vote for Dems that support BLM, Antifa, and other radical lefty groups of the day.

      …and last I recall, while everyone here disavowed wokeism in 2020 and 2021, you embraced it and refused to take a stand against it, instead supporting the woke sports community, many who supported those that advocated violence against the police.

      Ok, being The EXPERT and resident HHR PEACEMAKER, I will resolve this silly dispute between my buddies Jester Jadon and PityLaw.

      PityLaw did indeed bring up the silly notion of Good and Bad Philly in the past and now is trying to walk it back after much ridicule.

      In fact, he referenced specific areas like Rittenhouse Square as the Good part of Philly, and I challenged him on it because I would see homeless loitering in around there begging for money, specifically while walking up Walnut Street in the ritzy shopping district and having vagrants camped out on the sidewalks in front of Starbucks or other stores.

      Here’s an article from last year talking about all the new benches with bars they put in Rittenhouse Square, the Good part of Philly, to discourage homeless from sleeping there, this proving homelessness is a problem in the Good part of Philly too.

      But PityLaw often reminds us he has been to Philly MILLIONS of times and knows it better than anyone else who ever lived but somehow he never sees the homeless in the Good part of Philly, that and how he reminds us he lives dangerously close, like 6 miles away, from the Bad part of Philly I assume, but never worries about being a crime statistic.

      “The new benches suck,” said a person who goes by Redz, who said they sometimes sleep in the park. “They’re too close together and they put the middle bar so the homeless can’t sleep. If it’s $10,000 per bench, imagine what they could do for the homeless with that money.”

      Tgca is a vile, hate-filled scumbag who parrots leftist talking points from Occupy Wall Street, Code Pink, and If Jason wants to curry his favor, so be it.”

      Tgca does parrot leftist talking points from Occupy Wall Street, Code Pink and Moveon. And he loves Russia state media talking points like fellow Putin stooge Tucker Carlson.

      But just because of that I don’t have to disagree with everything he says. He is right that Philadelphia is a dangerous, crime infested, drug infested, totally corrupt hell hole as published stats indicate. And that the fact it has some “nicer” neighborhoods doesn’t change the numbers or the facts.

    92. Tgca says:

      Rittenhouse Square, the Good part of Philly, has charity run programs distributing food and clothes in Rittenhouse Square?

      Why are they handing out food and clothes in the Good part of Philly where there are no homeless? That must be inconvenient and expensive for the homeless to Uber over to Rittenhouse Square for a meal

      That just doesn’t make sense. It’s like having a soup kitchen in Bel Air. Very odd indeed. Hmmm…

      Outside Open Hearts Cafe — a twice-weekly free food and clothing handout run by the Church of the Holy Trinity on the northwest corner of the square — people experiencing homelessness struggled to justify the new furniture.

      This will finally be his downfall, because he congratulated Ronna McDaniel, who he never actually endorsed, on her win?

      Now Pfizer admits in lengthy response that they don’t do GoF research, well not really but just a little bit, kinda sorta but nothing illegal.

      Hysterical gay Pfizer scientist attacking Project Veritas and trying to destroy laptop showing him admitting to GoF while on what he thought was a date.

    108. Tgca says:

      To be fair, I’m not a big fan of gotcha interviews but let’s be real, major liberal network news also use gotcha techniques and secretly recorded videos and audio in their reporting targeting conservatives and for libs to complain about Project Veritas doing this is absurdly hypocritical.

      Perhaps if the MSM was not highly and partisan towards the left favorably and did their job, there wouldn’t be a need for these types of stings to get to the truth.

      I do feel badly for the gay scientist because his professional life is probably pretty much destroyed now but unfortunately, that will be the decision of his employer and future potential employers to make. Did he violate their trust or any NDA. Who knows?

      I would like to think that if I was at the J6 protest no amount of “provocateurs” would get me to invade the Capitol and certainly not to attack police officers or do any damage to the facilities.

      But in at least on instance there is tape of cops removing barriers and pretty much allowing people in, I can see where maybe I could have thought oh its ok just to walk in and take some pix.

      If there were Antifa people there, it should be as easy to identify them as it was with Trump supporters. So either they weren’t there or there is a massive cover-up where they aren’t being prosecuted. Maybe releasing all the tapes will answer that.

      It’s reported by the independent, non-partisan RT News, as well as Reuters and The Telegraph that Ukraine lobs missile into civilian hospital many kilometers away from frontline fighting, killing 14 and injuring 24.

      Oops! Accident?


      What say you?

      Zelenskyy takes FULL RESPONSIBILITY, like any good politician (think Mike Pence), and claims it was an accident. He further explained he was personally trying out new American advanced weaponry he intends on selling to terrorists in Africa when his wife Olena was messing around with the controls and accidentally changed the coordinates from an upscale fashion boutique to the hospital.

      If Suarez ran in the 2024 FL primary, he’d eat away UUUUGE support in Miami-Dade and Broward from DeSanctimonius, and probably elsewhere in the state with Latinos. His father survived the Cuban commies and became the 1st Cuban-American mayor of Miami.

      He has a great family story that will resonate with Latino voters in FL and elsewhere.

      If Trump, DeSanctimonius, and Suárez ran, then Trump would easily benefit and DeSanctimonius would likely lose FL primary, maybe come in 3rd.

      Gordy would probably have cardiac arrest and refuse to eat Ropa Vieja anymore and never leave his gated community even to go to the newsstands to get his magazines.

      Meanwhile, Trump will talk about all his accomplishments as POTUS on the economy, foreign affairs, judicial nomination, etc.

      DeSanctimonius will not be outdone and will respond how he got Disney to fire its woke CEO and Ben Sasse appointed president of Floreedah University.

      Tgca is perfectly ok with Russia intentionally bombing hospitals for over a year. Not one peep out of Tgca against any of Russia’s atrocities in the Ukraine, including the recent bombing of a residential building that killed 80 people.

      Looks like the gay senator from South Carolina enthusiastically endorsed Trump yesterday and basically sent a warning shot across the bow to those with TDS and the wanna-be challengers that you guys can’t compare to the accomplishments of Trump so he’s sticking with Trump for 2024.

      I was surprised he went to that level to detail Trump’s successes and to acknowledge why we need Trump again above all other candidates.

    144. Tgca says:

      This is the YUGE risk for DeSanctimonius in a primary. His accomplishments on going after woke Disney and Don’t Say Gay look trivial compared to what Trump accomplished as POTUS.

      What will be DeSanctimonius rationale for asking voters to choose him over a successful presidency on many fronts. He has nothing to run on but fighting Disney and woke teachers in Floreedah?

      As for leadership style, DeSanctimonius is similar to Trump. He’s self-centered, thin-skinned, and defensive and is disliked by most of the same folks that dislike Trump.

      So what’s the upside of choosing a rookie over an accomplished world leader?

    145. Tgca says:


      Everyone knows Russia will stoop the lowest so it’s not required we repeat Russia is Bad it over and over. It’s a given!

      But when supposedly good people do bad things we don’t deflect and excuse it away because there are much worse people out there.

      We do not expect those we align ourselves with to bomb civilian hospitals far from the frontline battles. Otherwise, we’re no worse than those dictators that commit atrocities or in this case Russia.

      If the Ukrainiam bombing of the hospital was a mistake, it is regrettable and they admit and apologize and move on because mistakes happen in war.

      If it was purposeful, then they are no better than the Russians.

      Ukraine has always been a corrupt country of thugs in power so it makes me wonder if this was purposeful and vindictive, and I wonder who sanctioned it. I could not imagine Zelenskyy would be STOOPID enough to be involved but who knows since his own cabinet is full of corrupt people.

And current proposals on the environment , Crime, Economy and Tax relief, Education , and government organization that he has made in speeches as a prelude to his State of the State address, of which you make NO attempt at all of informing yourself , and repeat endless idiotic Democrat talking points( so successfully sarc) VERBATIM ,is your choice.

      Kevin Tober

      I can only speculate that @votetimscott,
      @NikkiHaley, @Mike_Pence, & @mikepompeo are all for Trump being the 2024 nominee. Otherwise they won’t run. Anyone other than Ron DeSantis who doesn’t want Trump in 2024 should stay out of the race. It’s either going to be Don or Ron.

      – This is the correct take.

      Haley is likely running to help Trump by shaving off support from DeSantis. She hopes this will earn her the VP slot from Trump.

      Pence and Pompeo both know they can’t win the nomination, but they last thing they want is for DeSantis to win the nomination. If he does and wins the general, both wouldn’t be able to run for president again until 2032 and neither matter then. If Trump wins, they both think they can set themselves up to either pick up the pieces after Trump crashes and burns, or be his heir.

      BS. Trump would never pick Haley as VP, not in a million years.

      Haley knows that. Everyone knows that.

      She might run because in a divided field who knows what might happen. She figures if Trump with 2% initial preference against 17 other candidates could win in 2016 maybe she can win too.

      And let’s get real, the Golden Calf is a lot more MAGA than Nikki Haley.

      I have lived in Florida for years Crist, Scott and DeSanctimonius. I owned a home here as well and have been back here full time since 2020, and when I wasn’t living here, I spent significant time here for weeks or months at a time.

      Scott inherited a terrible economy and many other issues with Floreedah which ranked as one of the worst states hit by the 2008 recession. He turned it around and handed off to Ronaldo an excellent economy in 2019 and much improved state in major areas of quality of life.

      I saw significant noticeable change from Crist to Scott in Floreedah that I benefitted from. Everything got better under Scott. EVERYTHING!!!

      I have NOT noticed any significant change to Floreedah since DeSanctimonius took office that has benefitted me. To be fair, Scott gave DeSanctimonius a great state so maybe not much more DeSanctimonius could improve upon.

      DeSanctimonius’ MAJOR accomplishments and how he became nationally recognized were simply because of his efforts to fight wokeism with Disney and schools. It was not his economic or other policies because no one talks about those when they talk about DeSanctimonius. That’s a FACT!!!

      It’s great that DeSanctimonius went after wokesters because it got out of hand nationally starting in 2019/2020, and Floreedah has a nearly conservative supermajority legislature so DeSanctimonius can get things done here Gubbernors in many other states can’t to fight wokeism. If he was gubbernor of any northeast or most western states, he’d be unknown nationally.

      But those accomplishments of DeSanctimonius are things that haven’t benefitted me noticeably and unless you’re a conservative parent sending your kids to public schools in certain areas of tje state, it won’t impact most others either.

      So do I think DeSanctimonius has been a good gubbernor? Yes. A great gubbernor? Absolutely NOT! I think Scott was much more successful than DeSanctimonius and you can prove that out by looking at the before and after stats of each.

      DeSanctimonius’ successes in Floreedah beyond the woke focus is on par with many other gubbernors but not exceptional.

      Nationally, DeSanctimonius ranks in the top 20 of Gubbernors by approval ratings, usually varying from 11th onwards in most polls I’ve seen. The two most popular gubbernors are RINOs from MA and MD who significantly outpoll him in favorable ratings by 15 points.

      In fact, Hogan recently criticized DeSanctimonius in a TV interview where he mocked his national ranking as like 31st and stated Ronaldo hasn’t shown he can appeal to those outside his base in Floreedah. Not that I put much stock in Hogan but he has been accomplished in a very blue state.

      Hey Jester Jadon

      I agree those scumbag lawyers should have gotten much more for acting like terrorists but I’ll take a year in NY if I can get it against these scum.

      Why are lawyers such scumbags?

      I followed this case from Day 1 and was concerned they were going to get no prison time at all in NY.

      So a year sentence is better than nothing.

      Maybe they’ll both get their comeuppance in prison.

      My justice fantasy is that the Ivy League elitist will make a nice lil Bish for some big hairy dude who takes Vi*gara daily, and hopefully the skank will be housed in a cell with a violent horny tranny also on Vi*gara.

      Just a fantasy.

      Funny you say that Jester.

      After the BLM and Antifa riots in the bad parts of Philly in 2020, I refused to take my car to Philly because I had FL plates that honor law enforcement.

      I would have been a target!

      Then I would have gotten pissed and pulled out my nunchucks and cane and did some Kung Fu chit on these scummy lowlife b*stards.

      Good thing I spent years watching Kung Fu theater every Saturday at 3PM while in college, and perfecting my Tofu Style Kung Fu.

    160. Tgca says:

      For the record, I adored Bob Dole. One of my fav GOP politicians.

      Good decent honorable humble man with great wit and self-deprecating humor.

      …though I knew he could NEVER win the presidency anytime after 1990 since the country changed so much.

      I also had great respect for his classy wife. A self-made woman in a city dominated by males when she came on the scene in the 60s.

      Politics aside, her and Ginsberg were true inspiration to women in opening doors.

      Zzzzzz.. maybe to Marxists.

    163. Tgca says:


      I said politics aside.

      Like it or not, Ruthie is an icon to many women. In a 50-50 nation, it is silly to think only conservative women can be an inspiration.

      I’m sure those in Radnor admire her while those in North Carolina admire Libby.

      I bet even John Boehner would cry if he attended the unveiling of Ruthie’s portrait at SCOTUS.

      Hey Amoral Scumbag, if the Golden Calf is such a great candidate, why can’t he win the nomination running against whomever runs against him?

      – Trump is going to command 35% to 40% of the primary vote. That means about 60% to 65% of the vote will go elsewhere, but it won’t all go in the same direction. Certainly not in the early states.

      Those who don’t support Trump aren’t going to have the same idea about who should be the nominee. Some will want a Trumpy candidate not named Trump, some will want an establishment candidate, and some will want a moderate.

      Pence, Pompeo, Haley, and Sununu probably won’t move the needle much nationally, but each can have a big impact in the early states that will decide the race. For instance, polls show Sununu could get 10% to 15% of the vote in NH. Throw in a few points combined for the other also rans and that means Trump wins just as he did in 2016, getting about 40%.

      Go to Iowa and it’s not hard to see Mike Pence rallying just enough Christian conservatives to his cause that it makes a Trump win there with 35% to 40% likely.

      Swing to down to South Carolina and it’s not hard to see Nikki Haley snagging 10% to 15% of the vote there either. Once again, that opens the door for Trump to win with 35% or so as he did in 2016.

      But go ahead and call DeSantis a “Golden Calf” (aka a false idol) and pretend you’re really for him when you’re not. You’ll be for Trump because you’ve become NYCmike, a guy solely concerned with sending a message.

    165. Robbie says:

      jason says:
      January 29, 2023 at 1:18 pm
      Haley is likely running to help Trump by shaving off support from DeSantis. She hopes this will earn her the VP slot from Trump.’

      BS. Trump would never pick Haley as VP, not in a million years.

      – I suspect that’s the case, but I bet Nikki Haley doesn’t agree with you. She’s probably convinced herself her past service in the first term will give her leg up on the other choices. It’s fantasy as far as I’m concerned, but her political instincts haven’t been good in a long time.

    166. Robbie says:

      Trump and his campaign are no dummies. They know the one thing that can save his worthless turd candidacy is a crowded field. It worked in his favor in 2016 and he wants to see history repeat itself in 2024.

      There’s a reason Trump has refrained from aggressively attacking Pence, Pompeo, Haley, and Sununu so far. He knows, if they enter the race, their candidacies will draw almost exclusively from DeSantis.

      So if Pence, Haley, Pompeo, and Sununu really think Trump shouldn’t be the nominee, they won’t run. However, all four would almost certainly be very happy with Trump as the nominee. They can all either position themselves as the heir to him in 2028, or they can position themselves to pick up the pieces after Trump’s third run ends in defeat.

      Don’t believe any of these candidates, especially Haley, when they say America is at a crossroads and Republicans have to win. They don’t believe any of that. They’re just calculating how best to position themselves.

    167. jason says:

      “Ruthie” was a hard core Marxist ideologue who believed in using her position as conduit to advance her ideology rather than upholding the Constitution.

      There was no such thing as “politics aside” with her.

      “He is a faker,” she said of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, going point by point, as if presenting a legal brief. “He has no consistency about him. He says whatever comes into his head at the moment. He really has an ego. … How has he gotten away with not turning over his tax returns? The press seems to be very gentle with him on that.”

      I see nothing to admire in that.

    168. jason says:

      Amoral Scumbag is a pathological liar but can’t help saying some truths.

      “Trump and his campaign are no dummies.”


      “Trump is going to command 35% to 40% of the primary vote”


      Amoral Scumbag wants some kind of “brokered convention” where somehow all the candidates collude to anoint the Golden Calf as the nominee.


    169. Tgca says:


      I understand your view Jester but we live in a 50-50 nation, and Ruthie has been a consistently admired woman whether you like it or not just like Hillary had high admiration by liberals.

      You can take any view you want on Ruthie but it’s just an opinion no different than those that think Bush was one of the worst presidents ever and still do think that.

      Admiration is about opinions and not facts.

    170. Tgca says:

      So Robbie is against voters deciding in primaries?

      Every voter has the right to vote for whomever they want based on whatever reason they want no matter how much others disagree.

      That’s what a democratic voting process is all about.

      I personally think Pence running against Trump in a primary shows disloyalty, knowing everything he knows about Trump being denied re-election in 2020. Therefore, I would NEVER vote for Pence under any circumstance, even if my vote decided the GE.

      Some things are more important than seeking power. Same with DeSanctimonius. If he runs in the primary and wins, he will NOT get my vote in 2024 because I believe in loyalty over power hungry politicians.

      If Trump was not running in an immediate election after he was cheated, then I would feel differently but I believe Trump was the actual winner in 2020 if not for the voter irregularities and fraud.

    171. jason says:

      Amoral Scumbag is full of crap.

      The Golden Calf is going to have to earn the nomination just like everyone else, why are the other candidates going to collude to anoint him the nominee.

      Let everyone run and if the Golden Calf is such a great candidate he will win he nomination. Why can’t HE command 35-40% just like Trump?

    172. jason says:

      But go ahead and call DeSantis a “Golden Calf” (aka a false idol) and pretend you’re really for him when you’re not. ”

      I don’t see DeSantis as a false idol. I am mocking those who do.

    173. jason says:

      Amoral Scumbag wants everyone to collude to anoint the Golden Calf but whines about me calling him the Golden Calf.

      Don’t you love it here?

    174. jason says:

      You can take any view you want on Ruthie but it’s just an opinion”

      Yeah, my opinion is that she was a doctrinaire Marxist who used SCOTUS to advance her ideology at the expense of the Constitution.

      You can have any opinion on her you like.

      And yes GWB was a good President.

    175. jason says:

      Can’t you see it, Amoral Scumbag opens a door, and a cloud of tobacco smoke billows out.

      As reporters crowd around him, he announces:

      “It’s the Golden Calf”!

    176. jason says:

      You’ll be for Trump because you’ve become NYCmike, a guy solely concerned with sending a message.”

      Damm, being compared to NYC should get Bitter off the couch to give me some points.

      I don’t vote in primaries so I have no say on who is the nominee.

      I would vote for the Golden Calf or Trump in the GE.


    177. jason says:

      So if Pence, Haley, Pompeo, and Sununu really think Trump shouldn’t be the nominee, they won’t run. ”

      What kind of stupid logic is that?

      If they run against Trump they want him to be the nominee?


    178. Tgca says:

      Why is it that you can send a message by refusing to vote for Trump in 2016 or others after 2020, and others are not entitled to vote on their own principles? Sounds hypocritical to me.

      I am NOT a party hack that will be told how to vote. If I think a candidate is disloyal, then I don’t trust him and will NOT vote for him. It is not about sending a message but about character and quality of the candidate in my view.

      I would also not vote in the GE for Romney or Christie even if they ran against Pelosi or AOC. I would write in my vote, as I have done in statewide offices in the past in CA.

      I refuse to vote for people I do not trust or think lack character, regardless of who their opponent is.

      That’s part of living in democracies. Freedom to vote for whom you want for whatever reason you want, regardless of what others feel.

    179. jason says:

      Admiration is about opinions and not facts”

      Nice moving of the goalposts going from “inspiration” to “admiration”

      Liberals might admire her.

      She should not be an inspiration to anyone.

    180. jason says:

      Fine with me.

      Personally, I think the Golden Calf would be infinitely better than any Dem. I think he has shown he would be a good President.

      But I wouldn’t vote for “You must feel my pain Nikki Haley” so I can’t fault you for not supporting the Golden Calf.

    181. Tgca says:


      Again, you are trying to decide what others should admire and be inspired by as if that can be dictated by facts only.

      It’s your opinion ONLY and not a fact.

      You complain about leftists being extreme but you are doing the same thing as them in this instance.

      America is a 50-50 nation. You may not like it but Ruthie is greatly admired and an inspiration to many women, probably by close to 50% I would bet.

      Your view of her won’t change that any more than lefty views won’t change what people think of Scalia.

      In fact, Ruthie was admired by her peers and I bet even her conservative peers would call her an inspiration to women, regardless of her personal politics.

    182. jason says:

      Zzzzzz….. “Ruthie” was a Marxist hack who thought her position on the SC was to advance her ideological agenda rather than uphold the Constitution.

      I don’t think that should be an inspiration to anybody. And I don’t know of any conservative that would call her an inspiration, maybe you do.

    183. jason says:

      Some of the greatest villains in history were “admired”.

    184. Tgca says:


      That’s my point Jester!

      Like it or not, people are admired and inspired by others regardless of our personal views of such admiration and inspiration.

      We can’t control how others feel.

      You admire Zelenskyy, Dr. Fow-chee, China, and Robbie.

      I don’t admire any of them.

      Glad we agree.

    185. Tgca says:


      Personally, I think the Golden Calf would be infinitely better than any Dem. I think he has shown he would be a good President.

      You may be correct.

      Romney and Christie may be good presidents too or infinitely better than their Dem opponents but I would vote for neither as I don’t trust them and think they are disloyal and lack character I look for in leaders.

    186. Tgca says:

      Now to more critically important issues facing our nation.

      The article “THE” should be avoided in use because it’s dehumanizing according to an AP pronouncement to its writers, per Jonathan Turley.

      “We recommend avoiding general and often dehumanizing ‘the’ labels such as the poor, the mentally ill, the French, the disabled, the college-educated. Instead, use wording such as people with mental illnesses. And use these descriptions only when clearly relevant.”

    190. Pitchaboy says:

      Trump was a decent President and without a doubt brought a lot of Rs to the ballot box. Problem is he turns out a heck of a lot of Dems too. If Desantis wants to shut down Trump and his big mouth he needs a Jim Clyburn.

      Nah, he brought a lot of working class voters to the ballot box in states where Rs had not won in 30+ years.

      In 2016 I was an R who didn’t vote for him. There were many other Rs (including here at HHR) that didn’t either. But he still won.

    194. jason says:

      Romney and Christie may be good presidents too or infinitely better than their Dem opponents but I would vote for neither as I don’t trust them and think they are disloyal and lack character I look for in leaders”

      Nah. Bad analogy. Maybe the Golden Calf will become another Romney or Christie, life is full of risks.

      But you have to go with the evidence, and the evidence is that the Golden Calf is neither a Romney or a Christie. To the contrary, he is everything they are not.

      I didn’t watch any NFL games this year, not even highlights, but I see the headlines this AM, Eagles vs. Chiefs in SB. Bitter must be happy, I hope the Eagles win so my fellow A-hole will have some return for enduring woke football.

      I saw this Susie Moore piece on Redstate this morning, my sentiments exactly.

      And no, Susie, we will never recover. Woke football will never end, it will just get worse.

      “Just as my parents instilled in me a great love of baseball, so too, they gifted me with a love of football – even losing football, as, after a few bright spots in the late 70s and early 80s, MIZZOU was abysmal until after I graduated. As a 10-year-old, one of my treasured Christmas gifts was a Nerf football. I aspired to become the first woman pro-football player (and the first woman president). I was a tomboy – and a classical feminist.

      I carried that love forward into adulthood, thoroughly enjoying the Rams’ tenure here – who could ever forget the magic that was the ’99 season and The Greatest Show on Turf? Even after Stan Kroenke stabbed St. Louis in the back, my affection for the game continued.

      And then politics – one of my other loves – ruined it. It’s gotten so bad that even wearing a team jersey or declaring that you intend to watch (or not watch) a game is viewed through a political lens. So, rather than setting aside concerns about geopolitics, wars, crime, or the economy for a few hours to enjoy watching a favorite team or player battle it out on the gridiron while woofing down some nachos and an ice-cold beer, we’re confronted with the political ramifications of what used to just be good old fashioned fun.

      We’ve fumbled. Will we ever recover?

    196. Pitchaboy says:

      As many rural folks turned out by him, 15 million more Dems turned out for his opponent than they did for Obama. He is a turnout machine for Dems.

      Working class voters in swing states of the Rust Belt are not “rural folks”, that is TDS idiocy.

      The GOP always had the rural vote. What they didn’t have was the working class vote in blue collar areas of Oh, WI, MI and PA. Trump switched hundred of blue collar counties that Obama had won, many by double digits.

      #201 this is really a stupid argument. In 2008 we still had some semblance of real elections where the majority of votes were still cast on Election Day. By 2020 we evolved to a regime where polls were held open for months and a minority of votes were cast on Election Day. Turnout is going to go up when you give the parties— especially the Ds — two months to coerce VBM ballots.

      “SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg on Monday called for South Korea to provide direct military support to Ukraine, saying Kyiv is in urgent need of weapons to fight off the prolonged Russian invasion.

      South Korea, a growing arms exporter with a well-equipped, U.S.-backed military, has provided humanitarian aid and other support to Ukraine while joining U.S.-led economic sanctions against Moscow. But it has not directly provided arms to Ukraine, citing a long-standing policy of not supplying weapons to countries actively engaged in conflict.

      Speaking at a forum in Seoul, Stoltenberg, a former Norwegian prime minister, urged South Korea to “step up on the specific issue of military support.” He noted that several NATO members and allies, including Germany, Norway and Sweden, have changed their policies of not exporting weapons to countries in conflict to support Ukraine.”

      I wonder if people here would be fine if Russia provided advanced weaponry like tanks and aircraft to the enemy during the ILLEGAL US invasion of Iraq in 2003, and those weapons killed American soldiers who were decimating a country and killing it’s civilians.

      This is a very difficult situation but I think we get dangerously close to a long drawn out border expanding war if we start providing advanced weaponry in this fight.

      Trump is right! We need to find a way to end this without raising the stakes.

      Also, Russia will be legitimate in attacking U.S. supply chains and that means US casualties. The US has done the EXACT same thing in war so it’s a possibility and collateral damage the US should accept and not complain about.

    207. Tgca says:

      No surrender in the context that the Zelenskyy LAPDOG, our resident Jester Jadon is suggesting, as he amusingly fences AB’s jumps around around on the issues like any good foolish jester.

      I think there are ways out of this with Russia leaving and not occupying Ukraine but we need strong leadership to step up.

      I do believe Trump could help facilitate that with other European leaders but no one is taking a stab at it and the US is in a position of weakness that no one fears at this point.

      So calling me a Zelensky lapdog is no insult. I would certainly be ashamed to be a Putin toady sycophant like Tgca, however.

It’s the first time since May 2014 that the network failed to reach 450,000 viewers.”

      Might need to use the Defense Production Act.

    212. jason says:

      If the US cannot replace these piddly amounts of weapons sent to Ukraine we are indeed in real trouble.

      31 Abrams? The US has over 8,000 of them although only 4,400 combat ready. Still, 31 is not going to make any difference to US capabilities.

      The US has sent about 7,000 Javelins to Ukraine, but it still has 25,000 in stock, and about 6500 can be replaced a year under current production levels.

      Stingers? The US has sent Ukraine about 2,000 with 8,000 still in stock. Current production is low, only about 700 a year. But the Stinger is actually an old weapon and the US had not purchased any since 2003, 20 years ago.

    213. Chicon says:

      The biggest issue is ammunition, especially for artillery. The US has not been capable of fighting two wars at once in a long time. Ramping up production of the material spent to date is the prudent course of action. I am surprised Jason seems to object to this concept.

      Erick Erickson

      Trump is attacking DeSantis for closing beaches in Florida, which DeSantis never did. When DeSantis reopened schools in Florida, Trump attacked him then for opening schools. I know he’s almost 80, but he needs to remember what actually happened.

      – Trump absolutely remembers what happened. He’s just chosen to lie because Trump is a chronic liar.

      It’s pretty funny the best Mad King Donnie can offer right now is that DeSantis was somehow a lockdown fanatic. Not a soul believes that. DeSantis was the one battling lockdowns and mask mandates.

      Meanwhile, Trump put Fauci and Birx in charge and gave them the credibility of the White House podium to push their insane policies.

    215. Robbie says:

      Bill Mitchell

      In 2016, I was bold and went with the winner early. I’m doing the same thing now.

      I was hopeful for a Trump/DeSantis ticket but now that that seems unlikely, I believe DeSantis is the only one who can win the general election – and win we must.


      – First, the Earth’s core begins spinning in the opposite direction and, now, this.

      Coincidence? I think not.

    216. Tgca says:

      DOJ humiliated as vindictive woke Federal case brought against ABORTION protestor falls apart and defendant found not guilty.

      If you recall, this case was dropped at the state level because it was not about violating the right to ABORTIONS in the vile state of PA. However, the DOJ decided to file federal charges and make an example of the peaceful protestor who shoved pro-ABORTION activist away ONLY after the activist was inappropriately targeting and harassing the ABORTION protestor’s son and refused to leave the kid alone.

      The DOJ tried to make this a case of an ABORTION protestor using violence at an ABORTION clinic when they well knew that was not the issue here. The guy was protecting his son.

      Sounds like the jury agreed ABORTION activists don’t have the right to harass children of ABORTION protestors protesting peacefully and therefore sending them to jail for 10+ years due to a radical pro-ABORTION activist trying to provoke an incident using a child in the 1st place.

      The DOJ should be ashamed of trying to prosecute as a federal crime a case the state dropped and send a man to prison for a decade or more. What kind of people work at the DOJ?

      So the DOJ is now supporting adults harassing children which is not surprising since Biden and team already support protecting child s*xualization by pedos and those that encourage children to mutilate their genitalia in the name of wokeness.

      BULL DINKY Robbie!

      DeSanctimonius was NOT the only one battling COVID lockdowns. Gubbernor Noem was the only US gubbernor to do that even when she was criticized fir staying open after COVID spikes in her state.

      I have posted actual excerpts from DeSanctimonius’ EXECUTIVE ORDERS in the past showing he did lock down the state and followed the guidance of Dr. Fow-chee and the CDC just like most other states.

      This is all revisionist history to say he did otherwise.

      I traveled back and forth to Florida during early to mid 2020 and lived here from there on. The state was locked down at various levels like other states. It was pretty much dead after 5 PM and most restaurants, bars and stores were take out only or had limited seating capacity to ridiculous amounts or outside that made no sense.

      Tina posted a video showing DeSanctimonious at a press conference threatening to close businesses down and revoke their licenses if they did not follow his COVID restrictions that pretty much lasted through early fall of 2020.

      DeSanctimonius got the COVID vax and encouraged there to do so and was photographed many times wearing his back, including in one comical clip where he had it on backwards dangling from his face like a diaper.

      He also continued to pay people to stay home through summer 2021 when businesses were dying to hire but could not because he was paying people not to work, another reason the Floreedah economy took a hit and longer to recover.

      Many restaurants and stores cut their hours because of his requirements and the STOOPID policy to give out free money instead of getting people back to work early on. Floreedah paid benefits through June 2021 I believe which was 15 months after they began.

      Almost all retail places had signs hanging out saying they were hiring and offering bonuses while he continued to pay people to stay home into mid 2021. Those were his decisions and like other gubbernors, he followed the advice of the CDC and friends.

      I don’t fault DeSamctimonius for going with the flow in COVID restrictions and commend him in certain areas with respect to education but let’s not forget, he was doing what most states were doing.

      I couldn’t renew a state license for months because state offices were closed into spring 2021.

      Perhaps you should go back and look at the history and not the story DeSanctimonius and his sycophants are now spinning.

    219. Tgca says:


      I don’t fault you for being a Ukraine supporter.

      I fault you for being a Zelenskyy sycophant just like you were for Dr. Fow-chee and China.

      You have a history of showing poor judgment on certain leaders.

      I think everyone here supports Ukraine.

      The fact we don’t agree on the details of the support is what you can’t comprehend,

      It’s like saying if we don’t give police military style assault weapons you are anti-police.

      It’s a silly sophomoric argument you’ve been losing from day one so your only defense is to call people names.

    220. JeffP says:

      Trump attacking DeSantis will just further erode base support. But he can’t help himself. I don’t know what Trump is thinking when he made Fauci a household name.

      Anyway…we will see if DeSantis runs.

      Russian hoaxer is upset.

      Greg Price

      BREAKING: Pro-life activist Mark Houck was just found NOT GUILTY on federal FACE Act charges brought on him by Biden’s DOJ for pushing a Planned Parenthood escort who threatened his son while he was sidewalk counseling.

      226 So Jason thought Fauci was a good guy. Zero discernment on that one.

    223. Tgca says:


      Chicon has a point.

      We have serious supply chain issues that was laid out in an article I posted a weeks back by military leaders.

      There is legitimate concern of draining weapons and supplies from the US military that politicians are ignoring.

      For Christ sakes, we could not even get enough masks, medicine, and basic supplies manufactured and distributed during COVID but Jester Jadon, the Zelenskyy LAPDOG, is willing to put American military at risk because he is blinded by “give Ukraine whatever it wants at any cost to the US.

    224. Tina says:

      The Pushaw/Twitter activists were stupid.

      They lied about Desanris lockdowns and he got called on it. Now, they are crying. This includes closing beaches and prosecuting a business owner.

      They went full anti vax, which will not win the general.

    225. Tina says:

      Trump and Desantis both phuqed up their initial response.

      It is stupid to rehash this.

      The only thing they need/should push are

      No one wanted mandates.

      Prosecute Fraudci and briquette.

      Tariff the Ccp

      Ban Ccp from owning anything in the us

    226. Tgca says:



      Dr. Fow-chee was a well-known advisor in DC and MSM circles for decades. He had previously testified to Congress over 200 times. His role on the Covid task force was appropriate because people wanted to hear from the scientific experts and not spinning or uninformed politicians like Pence. No one listened to or sought out Pence on COVID, as the task leader just like no one seeks out Kamala on border security.

      I don’t fault Dr. Fow-chee for that. I fault him for his incompetence and errors and refusing to accept any voices but his own, and misleading leaders in a crisis.

      I also fault him for lying to Congress and the American people.

      He became corrupt. He broke the law. He should be prosecuted.

      Remember! Trump wanted to fire him after only a few months because he lost faith in him but DC politicians on both sides threatened to take Congressional against Trump and reminded him it was just before an election so instead Trump isolated Dr. Fow-chee as much as he could with intent if getting rid of him after the election.

      Go back and Google stories from summer 2020.

    227. JeffP says:

      Trump and Fauci worked to stop DeSantis opening schools in April 2020. Trump is revising history. DeSantis will use this if needed.

    228. JeffP says:

      234 Fauci has been corrupt for years going back to his AIDS research. He was very closely aligned with Bill Gates for years. No excuses.

    229. JeffP says:

      233 YESSSSSSS

    230. Tgca says:


      As the recognized chief medical advisor on the task force, Dr. Fow-chee was the guy people looked to for answers initially.

      Little did people know he was lying and misleading leaders and the American people, hence, why Trump wanted to get rid of him after only a few months.

      DeSanctimonius like other Gubbernors embraced Dr. Fow-chee and the CDC. He referred to their guidance in his various EO on shutting down the state.

      Again, I don’t fault leaders from decisions they made very early on when they believed they were being given good info by qualified gubbermint experts but I do fault them for revisionist history today for political purposes.

      Go watch the video where DeSanctimonius threatens business owners with closing them down and revoking their licenses.

      He can’t run from that either. That would be brutal if his EO and that press conference were used against him in political ads so it goes both ways.

      Also, why did DeSanctimonius pay people to stay home for 15+ months, negatively impacting Floreedah’s economy when businesses were dying to hire people with hiring signs plastered all over the place and offering sign-on bonuses, even for fast food places? Whoever heard of a sign-on bonus for Wendy’s before?

      Also not a good look for DeSanctimonius.

    231. Tgca says:


      What took you so long Floreedah? Embarrassing from a state claiming freedom.

      DeSanctimonius definitely leading from behind in supporting freedom and 2nd amendment rights.

      Legislation Introduced to Make Florida 26th Constitutional Carry State

      Floreedah last of 3 GOP states without constitutional carry, LA and NE still don’t have CC.

      25 other states, all GOP states except ME and VT already have CC.

      Sounds like freedom to protect yourself is a lower priority than attacking Disney for wokeness.

      I suspect it’s because you get more press coverage doing press conferences attacking Disney than you do explaining the importance of 2A.

    232. JeffP says:

      The obsession over DeSantis being a ineffective Governor in anyway is delusional. None of this will impact him if he runs. His likability is off the charts nationally and in his home state. He won by 20 and has the wind at his back.

    233. Gordon Allen says:

      Jeff P.
      TGCA is an absolute loon Democrat spouting nut on DeSantis. He’s ( DeSantis) easily the most impactful,virtually dominating Governor in America.
      NO ONe believes that crap in Florida.
      Oddly the official line from the Democrats is DeSantis is a Dictator, the exact opposite.
      Ignore him,he beclowns himself regularly.

    234. JeffP says:

      I am not sure about this … but I think Trump might get the Bernie Sanders treatment in the primary.

    235. NYCmike says:

      “226 So Jason thought Fauci was a good guy. Zero discernment on that one.”

      -Yup. Wanted to give him another Medal of Honor.

      It’s the one criticism that Robbie brings up continuously that is correct.

    236. NYCmike says:


      Still waiting for you to post those Twitter feeds and how the general public would know that they are mouthpieces of DeSantis.

      Thanks in advance.

    237. jason says:

      I think both Trump and the Golden Calf did the best they could under the circumstance and with the info available at the time.

      Sue me.

    238. Tgca says:


      You sound DESPERATE by asking others to ignore me and calling me a Dem even though I voted for DeSanctimonius.

      I never said he was an ineffective gubbernor.

      What my beef is with DeSamctimonius is that his people are GREATLY exaggerating his record. I think he’s been a good gubbernor but nowhere near a great gubbernor. Scott was much more accomplished gubbernor than DeSanctimonius in my view.

      As for the 20% recent win, Rubio also won by nearly 20%. It was more about Floreedah moving solidly right and poor Dem candidates in a tough environment for Dems in Floreedah.

      For example, Trump increased his wins in Miami-Dade and Palm Beach County by 22 and 12 points, respectively from 2016 to 2022 in these solidly Dem counties. He specifically did well among Cubans. We saw this trend continue in 2022 with DeSanctimonius and Rubio. Floreedah is going deeper red in the trend the last decade.

      So as you can see, Floreedah has been significantly trending more towards GOP regardless if it’s DeSanctimonius, Rubio, or Trump running.

      By the way, Noem won by 27% in her state, though she won her 1st election by 3.5 points. 5 other GOP gubbernors won in 2022 by equivalent election results to DeSanctimonius.

      DeSanctimonius approval rating ranks anywhere from 10th to 20th place behind other Gubbernors as well, depending on the poll.

      So instead of arguing from your personal desires and heart and putting DeSanctimonius on a pedestal, do some analysis 1st and check the facts, otherwise, you look IGORENT when someone can easily contradict you with facts.

      Were you this sloppy as a prosecutor too?

    239. Tgca says:


      Agreed! But let’s not re-write history and claim DeSanctimonius did what no other gubbernor did in the US.

      He’s not even in the Top 10 of approval ratings of gubbernors if you want to compare notes. GOP Gubbernors in MA, MD, and VT, all Dem states outperformed DeSanctimonius by anywhere from 18 to 21 points in approval. DeSanctimonius ranked 31st in the most comprehensive poll of all gubbernors I saw.

      I previously posted language from DeSnctimonius’ EOs contradicting this revisionist history here.

      Tina posted a video showing DeSanctimonius threatening to close businesses and revoke their licenses if they did not comply with his restrictive COVID rules.

      Etc etc etc

      So every time I see Gordy, Jeffie, or others GREATLY exaggerating DeSanctimonius’ record, I will remind them of the REAL FACTS.

      Why can’t they be satisfied he did well without trying to make it like no one comes close to his success.

      It’s ABSURD and irrational idolatry on a scale I’ve not seen since Obama sycophants exaggerated his accomplishments.

    240. JeffP says:

      I am for any candidate who calls out by name and rejects the WEF agenda.

      BIDEN: “I can say it now since there’s different leadership. I used to about 15% of the time ride with the engineers. For real. And I’m the only guy that I’m aware of, when I stopped riding Amtrak that had a key to get in the back.”

    243. jason says:

      I am tired of Tgca’s stupid attacks on the Golden Calf.

      My reservations regarding the Golden Calf have nothing to do with his abilities or his record as Governor of FL, I think both are stellar.

      My concern is what kind of campaign he would run and what kind of coalition he would put together to win.

      Someone has to win the nomination. For me, it could be Trump or the Golden Calf, I only prefer the Golden Calf because he is young and can serve 8 years.

      So I don’t like the gratuitous attacks on the Golden Calf anymore than I do the stupid TDS attacks on Trump.

    244. jason says:

      But Trump was a liar…

      “Catholic bishops are demanding that federal tax dollars not fund abortions.”

      BIDEN: “No they are not”

    245. Paul says:

      Jason: Why would you even consider Trump?

    246. Paul says:

      In the next election, I will vote for whichever Republican or Democrat is willing to stand up to Putin. Right now, Biden is the only one by a long-shot.

    247. Paul says:

      What is DeSantis’ opinion on funding Ukraine?

    248. Tgca says:


      What is DeSanctimonius stellar record?

      You guys keep talking about it but give no specifics. It’s all generalities about things he says you like or agree with. I’ve gotten STOOPID responses like he got Ben Sasse as president of Floreedah University and Gordy is STOOPID enough to admit he posted the successes from DeSanctimonius own website. No bias there, eh?

      Going after Disney or passing the Don’t Say Gay Bill is not an example of stellar legislation.

      …and please don’t say COVID. We have proven through public records and videos that DeSanctimonius implemented COVID restrictions similar to other gubbernors throughout 2020.

      So name these actions that make him a great gubbernor.

      I challenge you to list them.

      You complain how Obama, Newsom, and other Dems are overrated but then do the same with DeSanctimonius.

    249. Tgca says:


      DeSanctimonius will be beholden to the donors so whatever they want will be his position pretty much just like any GOP candidate.

      My gut is he will support unlimited funding for Ukraine that will benefit defense contractors that the donors have investments in.

    250. Larrysib says:

      TGCA. BS
      I gave you a LONG list, which apparently you never read. I’ve given you sites to check, which again you’ve never looked at.
      Just since December( special session called by Desantis) he had the entire homeowner property insurance market reformed, instituted a Florida Shelter assistance program adopted BEFORE Fema even started providing them( a disgrace btw), and announced in speeches far ranging environmental plans, Criminal Justice measures( tough), reform of the Educational system( cutting teacher union control among others), and yesterday a 4 year $7 Billion Dollar infrastructure plan aimed at reducing traffic reduction plan/ to be submitted to the Legislature and all will be passed. Along with a major tax reduction program. Apparently, as a resident you don’t read the papers or watch the News either
      We have a 23 Billion Dollar surplus, the largest ever, crime rates down the most ever, are # 1 rated School system, the fastest growing State, the biggest job growth ever,have net been the largest recipient of wealth Transfer in US history, an unemployment rate at 2.5 %. the lowest ever and on and on. I’m tired of typing as there’s more.
      I don’t want to hear stale Democrat propaganda from you anymore, which worked to the tune of 39% vote. BTW the growth in the GOP and down Ballot performance was the best ever for a Republican here.

      Paul says:
      January 30, 2023 at 10:38 pm

      Jason: Why would you even consider Trump?”

      Because he was a good President.

      Yes, I never agreed with his AFL-CIO agenda of stupid tariffs and trade wars, his self defeating comments on NATO, his crony capitalist ways. He made some horrible picks for important positions and he is a narcissist and blowhard. He needlessly burned bridges and alienated people he would later need to support his agenda or defend him against endless investigations.

      But on the balance, he delivered for conservatives. Energy independence, lower taxes, a slew of conservative judges including 3 SCOTUS judges, deregulation, stronger military, and war against the dishonest MSM and against wokism. I think his physical border wall was a waste of money, but he did reduce border crossings and supported the Border Patrol and INS. He took a strong stand against ISIS and Iranian sponsored terrorism. He made huge strides for peace in the Mideast with the Abrams Accords, remarkable achievement. And he actually at least tried to do what he said he would do, a rare feat.

    253. JeffP says:

      As long as both renounce and reject the great reset. I would rather have DeSantis for 8 years over Trump for 4 years.

    254. jason says:

      My gut is he will support unlimited funding for Ukraine”

      Thank God!

      Josh Kraushaar

      NEW poll of GOP voters by Republican pollster Whit Ayres for the Bulwark:

      DeSantis 52, Trump 30 in head-to-head national test.

      63% consider more as a Republican, 26% more as a Trump supporter.

      R contender with the highest favorables among Trumpists outside DT/RD: Nikki Haley.

      – Whit Ayers was Rubio’s pollster for his 2016 presidential run. He’s a real pollster unlike some of the clowns who put out garbage data before the elections last November. Still, this will never be a two-man race so the number is mostly eye candy.

      What the poll does show is what we’ve known for a long time. About 1/3 of the party will vote for MAGA daddy no matter what. About 2/3 of the party is more than ready to move on from the twice impeached buffoon so long as there is a credible alternative.

    263. JeffP says:

      This is why Trump might get the Bernie Sanders treatment.

    274. Tgca says:


      You are posting a litany of things DeSanctimonius has done or signed that most gubbernors do in their states that either don’t impact people daily or most are not even aware of.

      DeSanctimonius became nationally known for his Don’t Say Gay bill and attacking Disney. Prior to that, he was a relatively unknown in the US. People are not talking about the things you listed.

      What distinguishes a great gubbernor is big thinking ideas and policies that impact everyday people on a noticeable level not business as usual.

      Also, you reported distorted numbers. 1st, numerous sources show Florida is NOT #1 in education. In fact, it usually ranges in 10th to 20th place compared with other states. It is 11th place in high school grad rates. I saw recent sources from US News and World Report that ranks Education annually as well as a number of other educational resources so I’d like to know where you got FL is #1 in the US on education.

      Also, Floreedah saw a dip in high school grad rates in the 2020-2021 year that came AFTER he opened up schools in Floreedah.

      As for crime, it’s been dropping here for years but you fail to omit that Florida ranks as the number one state with least reporting crimes nationally to the FBI with CA 2nd. So I question any numbers compiled by a state alone and not reported nationally for review and comparison. We know certain states withhold info at times because it makes them look bad.

      Again, nothing you listed details GREATNESS. I can post similar items by other gubbernors, including Dems for comparison.

      In addition, you’re giving credit to DeSanctimonius ALONE for things that he inherited, including voter registration by the GOP where I previously showed annual analysis for him and Scott and they were pretty much consistent in GOP registration growth which shows it’s a state trend and not specific to any gubbernor.

      Most people don’t uproot their life and move to a state because they like its gubbernor. Floreedah saw major increases the last few years because people could work from home so they moved to FL for the weather and no state taxes. We have tons that did that in southeast Floreedah, coming from the Northeast.

      This is the problem I have with you.

      You see GREATNESS where I see DeSanctimonius doing his job as expected, good to very good in some areas and needs improvement in other areas.EXAGGERATIONS because I will continuously find and post contradicting available info to your lies like I did on DeSanctimonius COVID administration which was mediocre in comparison to many other GOP states.

      Trump: 48%
      DeSantis: 31%

      This is a perfect example I have with the DeSanctimonius sycophants.

      In the video DeSanctimonius is telling people in his own words gong back little more than a year ago:

      If you get the vax, you’re immune
      If you are fully vaccinated, chances of getting seriously ill or dying is zero
      Vaccines are safe, get vaccinated
      The vaccine data is fantastic
      Etc etc etc

      He himself has gotten the vax but is silent on whether he was boosted.

      He was out there pushing the vax in 2021 and now they’re trying to do a walk back by lying about it.

      He will be confronted with these videos as well as his restrictive COVID policies in any debates. I suspect he will be asked how many boosters he has taken as well. Currently he refuses to answer now that they are controversial but he will be pressed on it in a campaign and refusal to answer will make him look foolish and disingenuous. He pushed others to get them but won’t answer if he got them?

      I think the better argument is to argue that the vax was most beneficial to those at high risk but considering that we know more now than we did then rather than him trying to spin he was anti-vax when there are videos show him pushing it.

      Trump, Noem, Sununu, Hogan will massacre DeSanctimonius on this and other gross exaggerations they keep pushing.

      Sununu just did an interview criticizing him, as did Hogan who mocked his approval ratings in Red Floreedah compared to 3 GOP gubbernors in Dem states leading him by 18 to 21 points.

    278. Tgca says:


      Agreed Jester! That’s my beef…or should I say my tofu!

      DeSanctimonius has been a good gubbernor, very good in some areas with improvement needed in other areas, like most politicians.

      His sycophants are trying to build him up and take routine tasks he does as examples of GREATNESS.

      It’s absurd!

      Gordy just lied and claimed Florida is the #1 rated school system. This is sooooo easy to dispel with a simple Google search.

      Whets next? DeSanctimonius got a pothole fixed in front of the state Capitol and Gordy to claim DeSanctimonius leads all gubbernors on transportation in the nation?

    279. Tgca says:

      276 Jeffie

      Where do you get 2/3 GOP is ready to move on from Trump?

      Please source that. It’s not what we see in polls.

      Also, having Trump as a 2nd candidate because of the fat shiny new penny DeSanctimonius does not mean they are ready to MOVE ON but more they have ranked choices.

      Using your logic, that means the VAST majority don’t want DeSanctimonius either because he is generally trending at 30% or below where Trump trends around 45% to 48% currently.

      Here is what RCP has out there but other recent polls show pretty much the same nationally. Trump has been ticking up the last month.

      Average 11/18 – 1/21 46.4 30.8
      Emerson 1/19 – 1/21 55 29
      Harris 1/18 – 1/19 48 28
      YouGov 1/14 – 1/17 44 32

      Another article citing concerns with GOP senators and Reps as well as industry specialists that we may not be capable to satisfactorily support Taiwan in the event of a war with China due to diverting military equipment to Ukraine, our largest deployment of weapons in Europe since WW2.

      A gubbermint report is quoted as raising concerns as well. The US is not in a position to support 2 major conflicts at this time, one with China and one with Russia.

      Concerns include dwindling stockpiles materials and supply chain to replace timely, as well as the lack of infrastructure in the US to manufacture defense equipment for two conflicts, and resources we currently get from China.

    282. Tina says:

      Correct, Jason.

      Desantis’ influencer/Twitter bots are doing stupid things against him,

    283. Tgca says:

      I think DeSanctimonius is making the same mistakes Rubio made.

      Rubio was the darling of Floreedah and beat out a GOP gubbernor in a primary for senator.

      He then got to DC and things changed. He went from being a darling of the people to a cocky political pawn of the big donor class. He had his marching orders.

      They tried to groom him for POTUS and claimed he was the savior the GOP needed. Remember the Time cover of him titled the GOP Savior.

      Then he imploded. He got cocky, arrogant, and believed his own hype. He NEVER recovered nationally from that poor strategy and Christie destroyed him and stripped the Emperor of his clothes.

      I see strong similarities in DeSanctimonius. At least Rubio had charisma, charm and energy, all of which DeSanctimonius lacks with his mini-Trump, defensive persona that will not work well on a national level.

      I suspect Trump and other GOP candidates in a primary will pile up on DeSanctimonius. Some GOP gubbernors like Sununu and Hogan are already mocking his approval ratings and anti-wokeism vendetta as extreme and likely not to play well in other states or attracting moderates.

      My gut feeling is the 2024 GOP field is gonna be stacked with a bunch who want to get in the game or jockey for national recognition and that hurts DeSanctimonius.

    286. Tgca says:

      …and so it begins.

      DeSanctimonius took the bait today and snapped back mocking Trump, that he got re-elected gubbernor. He let his defensive nature get the best of him.

      This is EXACTLY what Trump wanted!

      Trump is masterful at these types of things. He is now going to drag DeSanctimonius through a gutter fight the next few months and force the GOP and MAGA voters to pick sides which will highlight their records and allow the MSM to take advantage and manipulate coverage to both their disadvantages.

      I knew this would happen! DeSanctimonius is TOO TRUMP-like to let Trump be Trump.

      “You take a crisis situation like Covid, the good thing about it is that when you’re an elected executive, you have to make all kinds of decisions, you’ve got to steer that ship,” DeSantis said Tuesday at an event on education in response to a question about Trump’s recent attacks. “And the good thing is that people are able to render a judgment on that: whether they re-elect you or not.”

      “I’m happy to say in my case, not only did we win re-election, we won with the highest percentage of the vote that any Republican governor candidate has in the history of the state of Florida,” DeSantis said.

    288. JeffP says:

      Until there is a field for Trump to run against that is actively campaigning Like real candidates. I don’t give these polls much credence. I also would not put it past the corrupt DOJ and the special counsel to indict Trump. Certainly the Uniparty won’t object. At this point it appears there are serious reservations about being the first candidate declare.

      Agreed! But the GOP primary is likely to be narrowed to a few candidates getting actual votes in primaries so most contenders won’t matter after initial contests, other than grandstanding and trying to score points. Remember, for them, right now, it looks like DeSanctimonius is the one they need to take out 1st, not Trump.

      It looks like it could be a bloody war though.

      DeSanctimonius and others have to make the case why they’d be a better choice for president than Trump who was actually a successful president in the eyes of most GOP. A very hard task to do against someone who was president and would still be president if not for fraud and voting manipulating by states and courts, as 75% of the GOP and MAGA voters still believe, and someone who got substantially more votes than any other GOP presidential candidate ever, to the tune of 12+ million.

      …and Twitter revelations have helped Trump enormously the last few months, and hence, I believe partly why his poll numbers have been going up.

      DeSanctimonius will be a hard sell arguing he’s more electable and less controversial than Trump giving how he is perceived nationally by the press and libs, a mini-Trump in essence.

      Does the GOP want to elect Trump or another guy who constantly will fight with and be attacked by the libs and MSM or do they want more low key and less drama – which they’ll NEVER get with either Trump or DeSanctimonius.

    292. JeffP says:

      I don’t think you can be anti-vax when it doesn’t work and has caused a lot of serious side effects. It seems to me it should have been pulled. I think this issue hurts Trump a lot more. He thinks it saved thousands and thousands of lives. Which it couldn’t when it hasn’t worked, doesn’t work with boosters and more have died with the vax than without.

    293. Cash Cow TM says:


      “Monkeys missing as mysterious acts continue at Dallas Zoo…”

    294. JeffP says:

      If Trump gets the Bernie Sanders treatment and DeSantis runs it will be either him or Haley as the chosen one to run one on one. It will be all determined. Trump is bleeding base support in spite of whatever these premature polls say. Trump is picking up some endorsements in the last few days which is good for him.

      Regardless I still think he gets indicted before the primaries or after he wins the nomination…these people are corrupt as he)). I would be shocked if the Biden DOJ allowed him to run. I am still am not sure if DeSantis runs.

      Until mail in voting is brought under control it probably doesn’t matter.

    295. Tgca says:


      No it was NOT! It was a strategic blunder you will see soon enough if Trump goes scorched earth which is now highly likely.

      He suggested today Trump has failed COVID policies while his were successful and that’s why Trump lost. Very disingenuous and untrue. Not even 75% of GOP or MAGA believe that.

      DeSanctimonius took the bait because he, like Trump, is an extremely defensive guy that feels he must win every battle.

      Now DeSanctimonius is gonna have to spend the next 2 years as gubbernor and a potential POTUS primary contender defending constant criticism by Trump which the libs and MSM will egg on and that deflect from his ability to govern successfully.

      Every DeSanctimonius press conference will be about Trump now. Other GOP contenders like Sununu, Hogan, and Noem will pile on too mocking DeSanctimonius as they already have done.

      A GOP candidate war between the two is disastrous!

      It will hurt the party. It will force people to take sides.

      The eventual nominee will lose a good portion of GOP voters because supporters will be furious their candidate did not make it.

      My gut feeling is Trump will win these battles and remind people of all his presidential successes that DeSanctimonius can’t compete with.

    296. Tgca says:


      I think an indictment of Trump will further help him not hurt him with the GOP and MAGA. Even Indys know an indictment is a ploy just to stop Trump because they fear he will win.

    297. Tgca says:


      An indictment cannot stop a president from running. He has to be convicted, and even then, there is some question of a conviction for certain crimes stopping a candidate from running for office. We are in uncharted territory.

      I would crawl over broken glass to vote for Trump as either a GOP or Indy candidate if they indicted him just to stop him from running because that is an extreme abuse of power.

      I suspect a substantial amount of MAGA voters would too and that means DeSanctimonius would be toast.

      DeSanctimonius CAN’T win a fight with Trump. He owes his political fortunes to Trump and voters will be reminded of that daily.

      What is DeSanctimonius going to say? He believes Trump is not qualified to run because he’s been indicted or convicted? You know how that will go over with most in the GOP? TRAITOR!!!

    298. Tgca says:


      BS! The vax has been effective with the elderly and those with serious comorbidities and have reduced their risks of death during infection.

      It is the younger and healthy people who are seeing issues with myocarditis and cardiac events. Many athletes and young are collapsing because their physical activities are increasing their risk of a cardiac event due to hidden unknown medical conditions brought on by the vax.

      Elderly are not involved in activities increasing such risks if a cardiac event.

      Besides, Trump can argue that the Pharma companies lied, and he had nothing to do with boosters since they were developed once he left office.

    299. Waingro says:

      ” if Trump goes scorched earth which is now highly likely.”

      LOL. He’s already went scorched Earth on him.

    300. Tgca says:


      Nothing compared to what will be coming and we all know that.

      It’s going to be tit for tat, all out war if they can’t agree on lines in the sand now.

      Trump will show the commercials of DeSanctimonius and Barbie made with their kids in late 2018 GLORIFYING Trump.

      How does DESanctimonius walk that back? What has changed other than DeSanctimonius being opportunistic and disloyal to Trump.

      I say DeSanctimonius cannot win a battle of wits with Trump.

      Trump is already attacking him as a tool of the globalists who are his donors. Maybe not fair but it will resonate with folks that DeSanctimonius is being backed by the open borders donors because they want cheap labor.

      An indictment would help Trump, not hurt him. Not sure the DOJ understands that.

      And then your Twitter groupies go anti vax. That won’t win a ge.

      Don’t forget the same Twitter influencers also attacked Noem for her no lockdowns.

      Desantis above the fray and holds off an announcement for as long as possible.

      But it’s also a gamble as he gets defined/trump muddies up the water (Covid response/vax, etc.

    313. JeffP says:

      Speaking of Twitter…I will say it again. Trump better get out of his non compete or get over whatever his issue is.

    314. Waingro says:

      #327, I can almost guarantee you that most of the GOP primary electorate is not going to know nor care what a bunch of Twitter bots have had to say.

      Agreed! Russia needs to step back to its pre-invasion to move forward to a serious resolution.

      Not sure Crimea is on the table though and would be productive at this point.

      The Jester and the Clown are in agreement.

    318. Tgca says:


      I agree what we know now about COVID, is all in hindsight.

      I believe Dr. Fow-chee, CDC, W.H.O. and Big Pharma misled and lied to leaders at all levels, POTUS, Congress, state and local leaders that led to rash decisions and dividing the American public.

      I don’t fault people for their initial responses to COVID in the 1st few months but it then became very clear after that, they were gaming it for political and power structuring and used courts, MSM, and Big Tech to further that goal and continue deceiving and dividing Americans.

      That being said, there should be no revisionist history though. Take responsibility and move on. STOP with the gross exaggerations and lies I say to ALL politicians.

    319. Tgca says:

      So it looks like 2 senators are currently endorsing Trump for 2024 run, the gay SC Senator and Vance. I expect more soon.

      Romney and Murkowski may wait it out a bit before endorsing Trump though me thinks.

    320. Tgca says:


      Noem took a beating publicly by MSM for being reckless for not closing down, especially when numbers spiked in her state but I agree, she is the ONLY gubbernor who can effectively say her state NEVER closed down and had their economy destroyed because of it.

      There were nights in Floreedah after 5PM in 2020 I could not get a bite to eat as businesses shut down. Too bad South Dakota was too far away for take-out.

    321. Tgca says:


      Though I can’t stand the RINO or should I say RHINO Hogan, he can effectively make an argument of garnering support of Indy’s and moderates more than any other expected candidate at this time.

      He won twice in a very liberal state and had an approval rating of 70%. DeSanctimonius can’t come close to that even in a very favorable Red state.

      Hogan plans to run on that and will attack DeSanctimonius on being unelectable nationally, as he’s already made that argument in interviews that outside of Floreedah, DeSanctimonius can’t bring home the trophy because he can’t expand his base; he’s too right-winged.

      Sununu made a similar argument on DeSanctimonius saying the gubbermint can’t legislate cultural issues either way. He thinks DeSanctimonius is weaponizing gubbermint against the woke rather than using leadership influence to name his case and he argues that is just as bad as what Dems do. Ouch!

      So expect these guys, as well as Trump supporters in Congress to start to piling up on and hammering DeSanctimonius soon. We’ll see how defensive DeSanctimonius gets in press conferences when reporters throw in face all these attacks by his fellow republicans.

      Will DeSanctimonius try and respond and mock Hogan who won re-election by 12 points in a very liberal state?

      Will DeSanctimonius mick Charlie Baker, if he runs, who left office with a 74% approval rating and won his election by 33 points in a very liberal state?

    322. Pitchaboy says:

      Out here there are a few who believe any criticism of Trump is TDS. I voted twice for him and on the balance, he was a decent President. But it is stupidity to not recognize he sneaked through in 2016 against a lousy candidate and got beat in 2020 by a lousier candidate. People were tired of his pettiness and unfairly or not, judged his handling of Covid as poor. He will not be able to “Jeb” Desantis. The only chance any R candidate has in 2024 is a combo of a lousy economy and better handling of the EV. Thus far there is no plan to neutralize the EV advantage of the Dems by the Republican Party.

      “Will DeSanctimonius mick Charlie Baker, if he runs, who left office with a 74% approval rating and won his election by 33 points in a very liberal state?”

      -When a Republican wins in a liberal state by such a wide margin, I compare them to Chris Christie.

      Christie won by 22% in his re-election victory, yet NJ saw no lasting changes from those victories. That tells me that Christie did NOT make the changes behind the scenes that were needed. His state Supreme Court picks were RINO-types.

      All 3 of them – Christie, Hogan and Baker probably could have taken on 1 or 2 more fights and won by 3-5 points instead of having landslides which did nothing long-term for the citizens of the state or the electoral prospects for Republicans in a nationwide race.

      74% approval rating is easy when you do nothing to change the basic governance of your state, except to make it take longer for the full crazies to take over.

    334. NYCmike says:

      Just to clarify – in the last 300 years, when was Ukraine a sovereign country? And when were they a part of a larger empire?

      Not if DeSanctimonius steps in.

    336. Tgca says:


      I agree. I’ve stated that in the past so STOP plagiarizing my EXCELLENT posts.

      Christie had no lasting impact in NJ other than decimating their donut reserves which I understand have not recovered to this day. It went right back to its leftist roots under Murphy.

      The difference between Baker and Hogan is they left office with approval ratings in the 70s. Christie left with 13% I believe.

      The Sewer State is a lost cause me thinks. I grew up there but I have no desire to ever go back.

      Good riddance to bad rubbish!

    337. Bitterlaw says:

      349.Seriously? Ukraine was a sovereign nation one year ago when it was viciously invaded by Putin’s army. That is the only thing that matters now.

      NYC would have used the same stupid argument in September 1939 when Poland was invaded by both Germany and the Soviet Union.

    338. Bitterlaw says:

      Every dollar spent pushing back Russian aggression prevents a new Cold War that would cost $Trillions.

    339. jason says:

      Just to clarify – in the last 300 years, when was Ukraine a sovereign country? And when were they a part of a larger empire?”


      Is that the new criteria?

      The US was not a sovereign country 300 years ago and was part of a “greater empire”.

      I guess NYC think it should be invaded by Russia too.

    340. jason says:

      So NYC thinks any country that didn’t exist 300 years ago is not entitled to sovereignty.

      I have read asinine statements here for years, but I have to admit, this one will be hard to beat.

    341. jason says:

      Israel only exists since 1948.

      I guess it is not entitled to exist either under NYC’s novel criteria.

    342. Bitterlaw says:

      Let’s see what other nations Russia can invade because they were not sovereign nations or were part of a greater empire 300 years ago:

      All of South America.
      Almost all of Africa
      Almost all of the Middle East (those pesky Ottomans)
      Most of Asia.

      But hands off Vatican City and Monaco (maybe).

    343. Bitterlaw says:

      I never thought I would see capitulation to Russia as a litmus test for conservatism.

    344. Tgca says:

      I don’t buy into the cost concerns over a new Cold War. The US will spend trillions on the military and other adventures around the world where it doesn’t belong regardless of a new Cold War or not.

      The US will not be saving its money if it avoids a new Cold War.

      …and let’s be real. The US had its best ever economic growth during the Cold War. More people were lifted out of poverty and innovation soared in the 1940s through 1990s. Competition due to the Cold War helped push that technology and innovation so it’s unlikely a new Cold War will stifle technology, innovation, or economic growth.

    345. jason says:

      All of South America.
      Almost all of Africa
      Almost all of the Middle East (those pesky Ottomans)

    346. NYCmike says:

      Actually, I asked the question to see if anyone knew the answer, because I don’t know it.

      Russia has had a dispute with Ukraine since the Soviet Union broke up, and one of the caveats of the relationship was that NATO would not allow Ukraine membership. Therein lies the start of the compromise to end the war – Russia withdraws to the Feb 2022 lines, Ukraine does not become part of NATO.

      Considering that Trump had kept peace with such an agreement tells me that it would work, and I see more logic for all parties to pursue such a peace.

    347. JeffP says:

      Hypothetically…if Trump gets the Bernie Sanders treatment and somehow DeSantis or a Haley narrowly win the nomination, do you think Trump would actively support them. I think not.

    348. JeffP says:

      This will begin to get a little interesting and you would think a couple more candidates will be announcing in the next couple months as well. DeSantis might wait until the legislative session is over in late spring.

    349. Bitterlaw says:

      Anything less than the Russian military pulling back to the pre-invasion border and Ukraine being allowed to decide whether it wants to join or not join NATO is a Russian victory and a defeat for Ukraine. That does not even get to the issue of Russian reparations to Ukraine for the human and economic destruction it caused.

    350. jason says:

      Hypothetically…if Trump gets the Bernie Sanders treatment and somehow DeSantis or a Haley narrowly win the nomination, do you think Trump would actively support them. I think not.”

      Therein lies the stupidity of the GOP civil war. The TDS morons think bashing Trump and his base will somehow be good for the Golden Calf. It won’t.

    351. jason says:

      Russia has had a dispute with Ukraine since the Soviet Union broke up, and one of the caveats of the relationship was that NATO would not allow Ukraine membership.”

      What “caveat”? Where does it say that was a condition for Ukraine to be independent?

      Ukraine as a sovereign nation does not need to ask Russia permission to join NATO.

      NATO for geopolitical or other reasons can reject the application, but that is another issue.

    352. jason says:

      Therein lies the start of the compromise to end the war – Russia withdraws to the Feb 2022 lines, Ukraine does not become part of NATO.”

      So let me get this straight. Ukraine was not a member of NATO before the invasion. It was not anywhere near becoming a NATO member.

      So the Russians are going to have 100k soldiers killed, hundreds of billions of equipment lost, a damaged economy and becoming an international pariah just to go exactly back to the status quo before the invasion?

      Not to mention even Putin knows invading Ukraine means a strengthened and larger NATO.

      This is not about NATO and not about the Donbas and not about Crimea. Never was.

      This is about territorial expansion, a Greater Russia and a new USSR. We can argue about how likely Russia is to succeed all day long, but this is the intent and the goal.

    353. JeffP says:

      366 Surely a Trump coronation wouldn’t be a good thing either.

      I think Trump should continue to speak out on his thoughts for resolving the Ukraine-Russian war.

      He is practical and has credibility in foreign policy and dealing with unruly dictators. Biden has lost all credibility.

      It’ll piss off the Dems that he is publicly advocating a solution but hey, Dems also tried to interfere when GOP presidents were challenged with foreign affairs.

      Besides, it’ll benefit Trump’s 2024 run and remind people of his ability to cut through the fat and provide common sense solutions most agree with instead of the status quo.

      Of course, DeSanctimonius will try to up Trump and pound his chest exclaiming Floreedah is where dictators and commies cone to die.

    357. Tgca says:

      Ok. Enough with Ukraine and 2024 election candidates. Let’s get to the REAL issues Americans care about, issues that are “TOP OF MIND” and impact our everyday lives.

      I’d trust Trump on getting a workable and fair resolution over you and any warmongers you support to come up with a solution.

      You still believe the US invaded Iraq to retrieve WMDs when we all know otherwise it was a ruse to try and democratize the Middle East. I believe Colin Powell over Bush/Cheney.

      So you’re credibility is not very good in these matters.

    360. Tgca says:

      I’m so happy Tom surprised me with his retirement news today. He is sweet like that in surprising me when I least expect it…ok…maybe I expected it a little but still, his heartfelt video message letting the world know he is giving up football to spend more time with me warmed my heart.

      Now that that skank Gisele is out of the way, Tom and I can spend some quality time together finally…preferably at his Miami estate, on his yacht, on very expensive vacations, etc..

      I’ll be planning fun activities for us to do in our retirement like keeping track of his $400+M fortune so I’ll keep y’all up to date.

      As I have stated many times, the steady march towards socialism is not going to be reversed or even slowed until we stop indoctrinating our children with far leftist dogma and releasing hundreds of thousands of Marxists each into society and positions of power in government and business.

      I also frequently attack conservatives for grandstanding on issues where grandstanding will have no impact.

      But here is a stellar victory for the Golden Calf, and something that if repeated on a larger scale nationwide WILL have an impact on the country’s leftward march.

      JeffP hardest hit, more “escalation”.

      “LIMOURS, France (AP) — Ukraine’s defense minister said Wednesday that Ukrainian lives will be saved by a sophisticated air-defense radar that France is supplying and which is powerful enough to spot incoming missiles and exploding drones in the skies over all of Ukraine’s capital and its surrounding region.

      The minister, Oleksii Reznikov, was so enthusiastic about what he called Ukraine’s new “electronic eyes” that he quickly coined a nickname for the Ground Master 200 radar — the “Grand Master.”

      Speaking through an interpreter at a handover ceremony for the radar with his French counterpart, Reznikov described the French-made GM200 as a “very effective” improvement for Ukraine’s network of about 300 different types of air-defense radars.

      Thales, the manufacturer, says the radar detects and tracks rockets, artillery and mortar shells, missiles, aircraft, drones and other threats.”

    394. DW says:

      jason, wow that is a serious escalation of the war on the part of Ukraine…to have the nerve to spot incoming missiles so Ukrainians won’t be blown to bits.

    395. Bitterlaw says:

      I completely disagree with Jason regarding whether Putin would have ordered the invasion of Ukraine even if Trump was still President. I say Putin would still have ordered the invasion. Jason says Putin would not have ordered the invasion.

      At least we agree that Putin is a vicious KGB thug who needs to be stopped. We also agree that the only acceptable solution is Russian forces either withdraw or be pushed back to the pre-invasion border with Ukraine.

    397. JeffP says:

      With Trump being a former President and “party leader” any candidate running will be in direct opposition to him…not “helping”Trump win against DeSantis.

      When I see some of these state polls clearing the field for DeSantis is inevitable if he runs. In 2015, 2016 polling Trump was dominate in almost every poll both national and state.

    398. JeffP says:

      From Alabama poll link above.

      Alabama isn’t the only state where Trump support is hollowing out. Last week, a University of New Hampshire poll showed DeSantis leading Trump 42% to 30% among Republican voters in the Granite State. And a South Carolina Policy Center survey of Republican voters showed DeSantis leading Trump 52% to 33% in a head-to-head match-up. Both New Hampshire and South Carolina are key early presidential primary states.

      One big caveat to these latest Trump/DeSantis numbers is that the matchup was head-to-head. It did not include any other potential candidates, including those like former Vice President Mike Pence, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, each of whom is said to be considering a bid. And yet, going back to that Cygnal poll in late October, those candidates barely registered in a ballot test and their combined score was barely even with “unsure.”

    399. JeffP says:

      412 What I think is irrelevant. It’s going to continue to be a bloodbath regardless. Putin would have invaded with Trump in office and he is not going to stop regardless. This talk of Crimea and Russia retreating back to original borders is unrealistic without direct involvement of NATO military and troops on the ground. Trump is smart enough to realize this.

The juries will be packed with partisan Trump hating Democrats. Just like DC.

      The fix is in. People need to understand this is now a banana republic works – both in the corrupt VBM electoral system initiated by the left and in the new criminal prosecution of political opponents by leftist Democrats. Anything goes and half the country is fine with it. Sad.

      The Trump vs DeSantis back and forth for the nomination talk on this site is an academic exercise and nothing more. Trump won’t be running for President from prison. That’s how Trump will be taken out. It will be interesting to see how the left tries to take DeSantis out. They won’t be able to criminalize him. They will need to get creative.

      DeSanctimonius, an unknown with no experience outside of Floreedah, will be running against the most successful president since Reagan who has a high approval rate with the vast majority of the GOP.

      What accomplishments can DeSanctimonius run on that Trump can’t equal or better him at?

      Trump can enumerate a list of foreign policy successes including keeping dictators in line, a booming economy and stock market, conservative judges, single-handedly bringing down the MSM, etc.

      How will DeSanctimonius top that? His major signature successes are Don’t Say Gay bill and humiliating Disney. Pretty much no one else nationally can name anything else he’s done that is consequential in Floreedah unless you think getting Ben Sasse appointed president of Floreedah University or providing a sales tax holiday to buy appliances is life-changing.

      DeSanctimonius is the Newsom of the right, more hot air and bravado than substance.

      So please tell me DeSanctimonius’ strategy of how he is a better candidate than Trump when he’s NEVER had the successes Trump had.

      Will his strategy be, trust me, I can do this if you give me a try versus, Trump who can say, trust me to do it AGAIN.

      It’s like comparing the radiance of a flashlight to the radiance of the sun. The differences in their successes and influences are exponentially different.

      I suspect when they get on stage actually debating, it will become apparent to all that DeSanctimonius doesn’t have the goods to back up his grossly exaggerated claims other than, just give me a chance to prove myself.

      I suspect a Rubio moment when other gubbernors like Hogan and Noem set him straight on his gross exaggerations of his successes.

      I live in Floreedah. I can’t think of anything that DeSanctimonius has done that has made my life significantly better. Not on thing! Not one!

      If you compare the aggregate state and national polling numbers from 2015 & 2016 Trump is not in the same comfortable position in early 2023. DeSantis is definitely a threat to him head to head and Trump and his people know it and the majority of early state polls demonstrate this.

      Talk about sucking up. Trump made DeSanctimonius. This ad proves it. Trump should run this clip over and over and over to remind everyone how DeSanctimonius got elected.

      He latched on to Trump and adopted all Trump’s policies. Without Trump, DeSanctimonius would be an unknown CongressCritter still.

    413. Tgca says:


      Newsom and DeSanctimonius are very similar in style and if they both run a national campaign you will see more of this come to light.

      Both are arrogant, defensive, thin-skinned, bullies, exploit gubbermint power for their benefit, and opportunists that greatly exaggerate their accomplishments.

      There are political differences and Newsom does have better hair and is not fat but those don’t matter as much except to some female voters.

      Both also come across with bigoted condescending remarks at times. Newsom against religious right and DeSanctimonius against AA.

    414. Tgca says:

      Notice Jeffie is now silent now on DeSanctimonius trying to capitalize on the gas stove issue after he realizes practically no one in Floreedah uses gas stoves but DeSanctimonius tries to make it a big issue for getting media attention.

      DeSanctimonius looks STOOPID by telling 92% of Floreedah residents they have to pay tax on electric stoves while 8% get a tax break on gas stoves.

      That’s like offering a sales tax break to those that eat at the most expensive restaurants while most people have to pay sales tax for dining out.

      So DeSanctimonius is catering to a minority group for political points. Isn’t that EXACTLY what Dems do?

      Very Newsom-like stunt that attempts to grab headlines but people roll their eyes over its actual impact.

      Jeffie got hoodwinked by his adulation for DeSanctimonius.

      So DeSanctimonius is pushing to take away licenses of doctors who do surgery or provide medical treatment for trans kids.

      This is a slippery slope and concerning and I’d like to see the actual details as opposed to some slogan designed for media cibsumption.

      I believe there is a rush to judgment by some woke doctors but I don’t believe most doctors go this route with trans kids.

      If the gubbermint can get in the way of deciding health issues for trans kids, then it can do it elsewhere as well.

      Should these treatment decisions be left up to the medical community and parents or should the gubbermint start involving itself in what medical treatment is appropriate and what is not?

      Will he also take away licenses away of those religious freaks pushing kids into conversion therapy, as that is equally damaging to the mental health of kids?

      Whether it’s pushing woke medical treatment solutions on trans kids or religious anti-gay treatments on gay kids, it is potentially dangerous for the kids and screws with their mental health. We already know these kids are at much higher rates of suicide than others.

      This is where I think DeSanctimonius is no different than Newsom or other lefty politicians who try and bully society with laws threatening their careers or prosecution if you don’t subscribe to their thinking.

      There are ways to address these matters without forcing unduly burdensome gubbernint sanctions on medical professionals. This is the criticism Hogan and Sununu have lodged against DESanctimonius. He uses a favorable legislature and courts to force solutions he can’t otherwise influence through policy and education. In other words, he takes the easy way out. He’s a Newsom clone in this respect.

      STOP weaponizing kids for political points on either side.

    419. Tgca says:


      Ha! Ha!

      So when DeSanctimonius makes a fool of himself and his sycophantic followers by trying to get headlines with gimmicks, you’re not responsible but you then constantly post pro-DeSanctimonius propaganda that you think might influence others.

      Nice try but you fail on this one.

      Neither obviously does Trump. The latest “DeSantis is a RINO Globalist” is so preposterous it reeks of utter desperation. The “Far Right” Republican Governor(MSM/Democrats) is a RINO??? I think DeSantis must be laughing for hours daily. He seems bullet proof.
      TGCA is in thrall to his Gay/Lesbian/Leftist friends in Fort Lauderdale. And is a joke.
      Right now Desantis is exactly where he wants to be, if not even better.

    424. Tom says:

      444. Don’t agree with the first statement. Dems are masters of timing. If they have something, they will hold it until the most strategically damaging time. Having said that, DeSantis does appear to be squeaky clean (unless Tgca is holding something).

      Which is it? Am I a self-loathing gay or a gay groomer Gordy? What does your magazines say on folks like me? We know what those magazines you embrace tell you about those colored folk you’re so afraid that makes you take refuge in a secured gated community.

      You just exposed yourself as a bigoted POS Gordy, not surprising for someone who clearly has issues of embracing issues of concerns to AA and gays.

      Wouldn’t surprise me in your part of Floreedah, where you can still drive around and see people proudly sporting Confederate flags and stickers on their vehicles.

      Hey Jeffie

      I went to the Boardwalk 3 times in south Jersey in September/October 2020 before season closure, twice at Seaside Heights and once in Wildwood, 4 to 5 months before you went to Floreedah, and everyone was walking around without masks and sitting about munching on goodies outside with no distancing required in seating. Boardwalk restaurants were open too but no one was sitting inside anyways because of the nice weather.

      Glad to see Floreedah and the Sewer State had similar beach dining policies back then.

      By the way, both DeSanctimonius and Murphy lifted their COVID restrictions on masks and spaces effective July 2021 with the caveat that private businesses can still make their own restrictions. You think they coordinated that together?

      To be fair, DeSanctimonius beat out Murphy by making his rescinding of restrictions on July 1, 2021 while Murphy issued his guidance on July, 4, 2021.

    435. Tgca says:


      DeSanctimonious is being mocked, even by some on the right on this. He tried to score media coverage by mocking Dems but it’s backfired because now they’re all reporting nobody uses gas appliances in Floreedah, the state with the lowest gas use per capita in the US.

      The expected benefits to Floreedah residents will most likely be less than $1M in a state with over 10M residential units, and that’s assuming people will go out and replace an average $600 gas stove just so they can get a $33 sales tax saving. Totally idiotic to place focus on this.

      By the way, I agree it was also really STOOPID the ways Dems rolled this out promoting getting rid of gas stoves but now the focus of this silly measure has shifted to mocking Floreedah by the MSM and social media.

      I even got a text from a GOP friend today saying it is silly for DeSanctimonius to spend his capital on this.

      “It’s incredibly concerning that there are American private schools owned by companies with strong ties to the Chinese Communist Party. From Florida to New York, there is clear evidence that the ownership of these schools are linked to our greatest adversary and it’s ridiculous that we are developing potential future military leaders through JROTC programs where the CCP could be shaping school curriculum and activities.”

      How about this novel idea instead of trying to legislate morality:

      Parents become involved with their children’s everyday lives. Spend time with your kids after school and on weekends instead of being too busy or self-absorbed. Ensure you know what’s going on in their lives and guide them between right and wrong and teach them from a young age about peer pressure and influence and seeking your guidance to help them make choices.

      It’s called raising your kids right instead of shutting down their freedoms. Parents with great open and trusting relationships with their kids don’t need to worry about the evils of social media.

      Some of the schools have JROTC programs and others are tech-focused. We must ensure our children are NOT being shaped by CCP-influenced curricula.”

      Ans showed how Putin played U.S. presidents (especially Trump) like a fiddle. Trump came across as really not understanding foreign 0olicy at all and not understanding Russia and really getting Putin wrong.

      And how Putin had remained true to his goals for umpteen years through many misguided, clueless or goofy presidents.

      And how he viewed the invasion of Afghanystan and war with Iraq as attempts by the U.S. to destabilize his neighbors and cause Russia/Puttypoot difficulties within Russia as the U.S. pushed democracy.

      Really got into how the Russians got heavily involved in trying to influence the election thru social media, etc. (not by colluding with Trump and Trump campaign).

      Also said that the turmoil caused by the 2020 election and the Jan. 6 attack on the capitol convinced Putin that Biden/U.S. was weak and it gave him the green light to invade Ukraine.

      Of course, it also showed how Obama and Clinton and the Bushes also got Putin wrong and also mad big errors in judgement.

      The Unemployment Rate dropped from 3.5% to 3.4% when it was expected to rise a tick to 3.6%.

      We have two conflicting reads on the economy. One are the government data and the second is hearing that hourly, big companies are firing tens of thousands of workers.

      Putin Appeasers hardest hit.

      “WASHINGTON (AP) — After months of agonizing, the U.S has agreed to send longer-range bombs to Ukraine as it prepares to launch a spring offensive to retake territory Russia captured last year, U.S. officials said Thursday, confirming that the new weapons will have roughly double the range of any other offensive weapon provided by America.

      The U.S. will provide ground-launched small diameter bombs as part of a $2.17 billion aid package it is expected to announce Friday, several U.S. officials said. The package also for the first time includes equipment to connect all the different air defense systems Western allies have rushed to the battlefield and integrate them into Ukraine’s own air defenses, to help it better defend against Russia’s missile attacks.”

    504. jason says:

      Is “ground launched bomb” an oxymoron?

    505. Gordon Allen says:

      It is so reassuring to know China and float a ” Ballon” over one of our ICBM fields and we threaten to send Anthony Blinken to talk to them?

      Imagine if that ” Balloon” was Russian sent by Putin?

    506. Phil says:

      Now they are talking about a second balloon. Only one reason the Chinese do something this provocative…’s a test to see how far they can go. If we won’t do anything about this it’s just another indication to the Chinese that it’s all systems go to move on Taiwan. As I said yesterday, this their window.

      “I was for a NFZ from the beginning and missile strikes on Russian units preparing to roll into Ukraine.”

      Hmmm….show me the post where you advocated for a pre-emptive strike on Russia before the war even started.

      And you were for a “European led” NFZ, which was complete BS, the NFZ would have had to be led by the US which has the military infrastructure in place to enforce it.

      I advocated for a NFZ over all Ukrainian territory not controlled by the Russians. This would have completely denied air support for the Russian ground troops and made the invasion much more difficult and probably not feasible. Implementing this NFZ BEFORE the invasion would have been no “act of war”, an “act of war” would be a violation of it.

    511. Bitterlaw says:

      I only wanted missile strikes on additional Russian troops preparing to roll into Ukraine after the invasion started. Rambo a/k/a Tgca can speak for himself.

    512. jason says:

      Evidently the Chinese say the balloon is a weather balloon off course and apologized for it. I say shoot it down over an unpopulated area and check it out and if they are lying it would be a good way to promote more military preparedness for an eventual conflict with China.

      However US Defense experts say it would have very limited intelligence gathering capabilities that couldn’t be gathered by much more sophisticated means such as satellites.

      A balloon like the one pictured would have very little steering if no capability so it would be unlikely it could be steered exactly over a certain area.

      I am skeptical this is really a “spy” balloon because it is so easily detected and shot down and would be a major PR disaster for China if that were to be confirmed.

      n Friday, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson said the balloon entered US airspace accidentally.

      “It is a civilian airship used for research, mainly meteorological, purposes. Affected by the Westerlies and with limited self-steering capability, the airship deviated far from its planned course. The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into US airspace due to force majeure,” the spokesperson said in a statement.

      The US believes Chinese spy satellites in low Earth orbit are capable of offering similar or better intelligence, limiting the value of whatever Beijing can glean from the high-altitude balloon, which is the size of three buses, according to another defense official.

      “It does not create significant value added over and above what the PRC is likely able to collect through things like satellites in low Earth orbit,” the senior defense official said.

    513. jason says:

      My position was for a NFZ imposed BEFORE the war started. After the war started I favored drawing a red line and saying Russian troops crossing it would be fair game for air and missile attacks. I did not advocate for attacks on Russian soil proper.

    514. jason says:

      So here’s my question to Jester Jadon and Bitter, if China invades Taiwan, will you support complete sanctions on China and cutting off all American trade, and isolating them like we did with Russia, including freezing all Chinese assets in the US, and encouraging Europe to do the same?”

      I am lazy, I will borrow Bitter’s answer.

      “495 If China attacks/invades Taiwan, the U.S. must treat it as an attack on America soil and respond both militarily and economically. This includes attacks on the Chinese mainland where the Chinese forces gathered to attack Taiwan are gathered.

      Do you have any difficult questions?”

    515. Phil says:

      The balloon is a blatant provocation. It’s simply a test. They could get good and better intel from spy satellites. Send the balloon or balloons over nuclear sites and gauge our response. Again, a test. US does nothing and more evidence the Biden administration is gutless. More evidence that they have a free run to go after Taiwan. Again, the window.

      Hunter’s lawyers are going to sue people for supposedly divulging data from Hunter’s computer.

      However, they state that doesn’t mean they acknowledge it is his computer.

      “We previously reported on Thursday that Hunter Biden’s lawyers are trying to get more aggressive, calling on the DOJ and the Delaware attorney general to go after the people involved in spreading what they now claimed was Hunter Biden’s data.

      After Hunter’s lawyers made that announcement, they thereafter tried to clarify they weren’t admitting that the laptop left at the computer repair shop was his.”

      A window of opportunity is not really a window unless you are prepared to act on it.

      An invasion of Taiwan would be a massive undertaking and the mobilization for it would take weeks if not months, and would be easily detected.

      Personally, I don’t think China will invade Taiwan. The Chinese commies are pragmatic. Taiwan is a an asset to them. They don’t want it for the territory, China is 270 times bigger. They want it because it would strengthen their economy.

      The only way to get Taiwan intact is to blockade it and get it to surrender. A missile/bombing campaign that destroys the country’s infrastructure and creates a humanitarian crisis for the 23 million inhabitants is not of interest to China. A physical invasion, storming the beaches to to speak, would be immensely costly in lives. The hundred miles between mainland China and Taiwan would be turned into a massive killing zone even before the Chinese reached the shore.

      The problem with the blockade is that Taiwan won’t accept it without a fight, and the vessels and aircraft imposing it will be attacked, not to mention Taiwan can attack the Chinese mainland and the bases enforcing the blockade also.

      Color me me skeptical the Chinese are actually going to invade in the short term. IMO they are going to use the military threat as a negotiating tool only.

    519. jason says:

      A good article on how attacking Taiwan successfully is a daunting task.

      A highlight:

      “The Republic of China Air Force (ROCAF) is small but efficient.

      It consists of 411 fighter aircraft in total, nearly half of which are modernised F-16s and French Mirage 2000 fighter jets.

      ROCAF ground crews are some of the best trained in the world, able to repair runways in three hours, significantly quicker than any other military.

      They are taught to fix and maintain their aircraft round the clock, getting their aircraft back in the air, a vital skill in any high tempo conflict.

      Airfields are usually the primary targets of the opening stage of any war. In a full-scale conflict, controlling the target airspace is a significant advantage, often decisive.

      Taiwan has adopted what Western analysts call a “porcupine” strategy. Designed to make invasion a thorny proposition, the concept is based on survivability.

      The ROCAF’s planes are now extremely well protected with several underground airfields, buried deep within Taiwan’s mountain ranges. The aircraft take off and land from wide tunnels cut into the mountainside.

      The Heng Shan Military Command Center is built under a mountain near Taipei and is designed to shelter thousands of personnel, allowing them to work, live and fight during any attack.

      The underground complex also has direct contact with the US Indo-Pacific Command in Hawaii, feeding and receiving vital data from early-warning radar, surveillance aircraft and satellites overhead, all working to make sure that a surprise attack is an impossibility.

      There are backup centres too. In the south of the island, jet aircraft are refuelled and rearmed in safety, operating from wide tunnels built into the Stone Mountain complex at Chihhang Air Base.

      In the north, the Air Operations Center controls a complex network of satellites, early warning radars, listening posts and missile defence systems, designed to protect Taiwan’s airspace.

      These underground bases are all linked by tunnels and hardwired communications. Multiple back-ups exist so if a complex is destroyed, others will take over and continue to play a part in the battle.”

    520. jason says:

      The article concludes with the same opinion I have.

      “Estimates of the number of troops needed to successfully take the island range from 400,000 to more than two million. Hundreds of transport ships would be needed, a tall order even if all of China’s merchant fleet was used. Hundreds of naval vessels would be needed to protect this giant fleet of vulnerable, unarmed transports.

      Hundreds of helicopters and transport planes would be needed for a strike force that would seize key installations in the opening phase of the invasion. It would take days to load this giant force and in today’s satellite-monitored world there would be no way a force of this size could remain hidden.

      Taiwan would be fully alerted and have more than enough time to mobilise its reserves. Its allies would immediately start reinforcing Taiwan’s position.

      The challenges in keeping a large mechanised force armed, fed and supplied so it can swiftly seize key objectives and fight successfully through heavily defended and populated urban areas would be huge and next to impossible in any timeframe that would guarantee success. Keeping hundreds of thousands of expeditionary troops combat-effective in the middle of a battlefield would involve a huge supply chain, while possible in peacetime, it would struggle to function in the hostile waters of the Taiwan Strait.

      These factors, coupled with determined and well-armed allies, the topography of Taiwan itself, the preparedness of its military, and the sheer weight of world opinion that would turn sharply against mainland China if it tried to invade Taiwan make it an unlikely prospect for the present.

      Blockades of ports and general overflights, grey operations – aggressive actions that stop just short of conflict – conducted by China’s coast guard and general intimidation are more likely prospects if Taiwan were perceived to be moving towards a formal declaration of independence.

      A military deterrent against any such thoughts by Taiwan’s leadership needs to be plausible, however, and that is exactly what China is working towards.”

      Just because it would be a daunting task doesn’t mean dictators won’t invade or start wars.

      History is rife with dictators taking on daunting and foolhardy tasks.

      Russia is doing that now in Ukraine. If China is serious about taking back Taiwan, a big IF, then now would be an opportune time for them.

      The US would have to choose between Ukraine and Taiwan because it can’t realistically strongly support both without going into full scale war mode that will impact our industries, economies, resources, supply chains, etc.

    525. Tgca says:


      My response to the China sycophant Jester Jadon who has excused away everything China has done for years is similar to Bitter on his support of wokeism, I’ll believe it when I see it.

      More or less. Putin thought he could decapitate the Ukrainian leadership and install a puppet regime, the present strategy of just trying to gobble up as much territory as possible is Plan B.
      He miscalculated on Zelensky’s reaction and on the attempt to secure the airbase near Kiev that would have allowed the Russians to pour in thousands troops and equipment at Kiev’s doorstep.

      It didn’t work but it was not foolhardy. It was poorly executed which is different.

      Hussein invading Kuwait? Not daunting or foolhardy. He cornered another 10% of the world’s oil reserves and it took Bush’s “this will not stand” to kick him out. If Dukakis had won the election it might have worked.

      Hitler invading the Soviet Union? Again, it didn’t work but had Hitler let his generals run the campaign and not made some major strategic errors he could have annexed a lot of territory if not taken Moscow.

      When will Special Counsel Ben Hur issue his first statement concerning Biden held classified docs found four different times at four different places?

    541. Tgca says:

      My point on choosing Taiwan over Ukraine is not about right or wrong or desire but military logistics.

      We’ve been told in the past the US military is ready to handle two major conflicts at a time. I doubt that very much, especially in Asia where the conflict with China would be monumentally larger.

      So the US would have to scale back on Ukraine but that also has risks because Pootin could use the US distraction with China as an opportunity to escalate in Ukraine.

      The US has always accepted it would have to defend Taiwan directly. Not so the case with Ukraine.

      The US would be in a pickle if China invades or attacks Taiwan requiring US intervention.

    542. Tgca says:

      Luckily, we will not have a ground fight with China, especially face to face because I think the Chinese would kick our azz in that scenario.

      China has been building up and training their soldiers for years while the US has been sending its soldiers to diversity training and forcing out its best with replacements of trannies and less fit personnel. Studies have shown the US military personnel are the fattest they’ve been since tracking.

      But who knows, maybe if the Chinese got a good look at some of our trannies, they’d run the other way in fright from freaks.

    543. Paul says:

      Tgca: The US Military isn’t involved in Ukraine. That is one of the nice things about that conflict. We are only providing weapons and aid. Our entire military would be free to take on China if necessary.

    544. Tgca says:


      Our military is involved in Ukraine. We are allocating resources to monitor and support them. A direct conflict with China will impact those resources and supply chains.

      There have already been political and military reports about our ability to keep our reserve equipment to levels our military needs. Whether those reports are exaggerated or not, I dunno but we can’t ignore such concerns.

      Also, if we are engaged with a direct military conflict with China then chances are Russia will also escalate in Ukraine.

      China and Russia are aligned against the U.S. other countries like Iran are too so expect a piling up in a major conflict.

      You can’t compare it to business as usual today.

    545. Tgca says:

      Shoot down the F*CKIN Chinese balloon already!!!

      This is very risky for the US. A major issue for national security.

      They could be using this as a dry run to eventually release biological agents or an EMG or in a worse same scenario.

      China may also have developed weaponry that could turn or citizens into trannies or gays.

      Seriously, this is not acceptable to let our most serious adversary and threat to our world leader status do these things, especially a commie dictatorship.

      Who believes these Commie B*stards!

      It’s a dry run for some military use testing they’re doing.

      If I wake up Monday and everyone is cross-redressing, singing show tunes, and speaking with a lisp and limp-wristed, then I’ll be proven correct it’s a biological agent turning Americans into gays and trannies.

      The American public will understand if it’s a potential national security threat. This could be a China test for how to detonate an EMG or spread biological or chemical weapons for all we know.

      Our military leaders get on the phone with China ASAP and tell them if they cannot control it, we will move drones into their airspace as well.

      Tit for tat!

The issue isn’t trade itself, of course, its that CCP China can’t be trusted to reciprocate in any of their dealings with us. They have shown themselves to be an enemy. And we should be dealing with them as such, constantly reviewing any agreement with them and any industry where we rely on them.

      If it was a balloon from Great Britain, France, Mexico, Canada or any other “friendly” nation would there be such news?

      Of course not.

      NYC might want to understand a little more about trade with China and what is involved before stupid comments like comparing a balloon to the principle of free trade.

      China is the third largest trade partner of the US. Almost a fifth of all US agricultural exports go to China. Trade with China is responsible for millions of jobs in the US and in hundreds of billions if not trillions of economic activity.

      The US exports over $150 billion to China, which employs a lot of people in the US. It also imports over $500 billion, which also employs a lot of people in the US. Imports have to be transported, stored, marketed and sold, generating job and tax revenue. Not to mention a lot of these imports are actually from products produced by US companies in China.

      Trade with China, both imports and exports, is growing.

      And furthermore that is a deterrent for China to invade Taiwan.

      You are an idiot. Foreign investment in China is not only from the US. Chinese markets for goods are not only in the US, but it would all be impacted in a war. China has to weigh the economic cost of a war over Taiwan and I doubt the numbers add up, especially a destroyed Taiwan.

      Increased trade is not only a deterrent to war, it is creating a large middle class in China that now has something to lose. “Westernizing” China and creating a consumer class there is in our interest.

    587. jason says:

      Let’s say you see a Chinese gadget at Walmart. ‘

      A US company employs people in the US that research the market for a gadget. They employ people who design the gadget and order it from China. The gadget arrives in a US port and is unloaded by US longshoremen. It is transported in US trucks. It is stored in US warehouses built by US construction workers and staffed by US workers. US advertising companies put together a campaign for it and a US company produces a video/ad for it. US media is paid to air the video or ad. The gadget is placed in stores that employ millions of people in the US. The gadget is sold and the revenue used to reinvest in more gadgets and the tax revenue is distributed to the local, state and federal government and can be used to buy jets to shoot down Chinese balloons or send aid to Ukraine.

      All that happens with the $500 billion we import from China, which results in trillions of economic activity in the form of jobs, revenue, profits, and taxes. In addition the $150 billion we export to China employs US farmers and workers in all kinds of industries.

      So no, we aren’t going to stop trading with China because of the balloon.

    588. jason says:

      Yup – once again, there are only 2 options – unfettered free trade or no trade at all”

      It seems like you are the one advocating for no trade at all, not me.

      What I advocate is for free trade to be the guiding principle of US trade policy, regardless of whether country A, B, or C engages in it or not.

      The idea that we cannot advocate for free trade because another country violates it is as stupid as saying we cannot have democracy because some countries are communist.

      It is hilarious that the isolationists and protectionist that hate free trade are the same people attacking China for not having free trade.

      I think this balloon is really a Trojan Horse. It will eventually land outside an ICBM base. The base personnel will tow it inside the base, and the hundreds of commies inside of it will spill out and take over the base. They will then threaten to fire the missiles at US cities and the US will have to surrender.

      I am afraid that by this time next week Chinese takeout will be the only authorized food in America.

      Fuzzy Chimp
      Chris Hayes if the Chinese spy balloon was in 2020:

      “In cozying up to dictators, Trump has brought us to the brink. What is it doing here? What are its intentions? I’m genuinely fearful for our nation tonight. Hug those whom you love, for tomorrow is never guaranteed.”

    591. Tgca says:

      Jester Jadon, the commie China sycophant makes every excuse to defend China’s actions here…AGAIN!

      If Russia were flying a balloon over a children’s hospital, he’d demand we should it down regardless of the loss of life because it’s a threat to national security and Russia is positioning itself to invade and take over the US as part of rebuilding the Motherland, and sorry but those sick kiddies are necessary collateral damage.

      But China? Oh no! We can’t do anything that could upset trade with them.

      As I said before, Jester Jadon is not for freedom and democracy but strictly for capitalistic opportunities, even if it’s with a commie nation.

      Jester Jadon probably would have been against war with Germany and Japan in WW2 – instead supporting more trade over the concerns about a few concentration camps – anything to make money.

    592. Tgca says:

      Trump is right…AGAIN!

      “It’s rarely even mentioned that China has many thousands of spies working in the United States in business, finance, academia, technology, media and likely, even government, very sadly,” Trump declared.

      This entire balloon debacle and fear of the US to react to it results in the humiliating perception of lack of US strength and might, just like we’re seeing with Russia’s humiliation of strength and might, in its strategic error to go to war with Ukraine.

      China is the US biggest threat by far, economically, militarily, and influentially in world support. 50 Russias would not pose the threat to the US that China does.

      The rest of the world is watching as China brazenly sticks its finger in America’s eye and dares the US to do something about it, as the US looks impotent.

      This will encourage more countries around the world to choose China over the US, especially in Asia, Africa, and South America where people respect strength.

      This is the continuation of altering the balance of worldwide power in China’s favor by STOOPID American politicians.

      White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked about it at the press conference today.

      Karine said, ” Look, all this talk and conjecture about this weather balloon is obviously an attempt by the reprehensible and diabolic Republicans to deflect focus from their plan to destroy America, abolish Medicare and Medicaid and to kill more children with gun violence.”

      Unconfirmed preliminary reports say that a large swath of America from Montana to North Carolina have classified documents (complete with Biden fingerprints) raining down on areas below.

      One farmer in Kansas said, “The ground is covered with classified documents. They are a little hard to spot at first because the white paper blends in with the snow cover. It is like it snows tons of Biden classified documents!”


      Karine Jean-Pierre refused to answer any questions about that and referred all questions about classified documents to the Justice Department.
      She added, “It is a shame that the dastardly and heartless Republicans want to shut down the federal government, cause the deaths of millions of elderly Americans, and encourage more gun violence and racism.”

      And then she closed the press conference by saying “We need to stop the hurtful rhetoric and divisive politics and bring the country together.

      President Biden said that “Look. When Trump was president there were like 50 billion China spy balloons came over the U.S. and Trump didn’t do a damn thing about it. That’s a FACT, Jack.”

    598. Cash Cow TM says:

      Another snippet from the book Cow is writing:

      “Connie Lingus drove her Ford Focus down the twisting highway that ran atop the canyon walls.
      As she finished passing Ed Jucation driving his Honda Element, a speeding Honda Echo passed both cars. As a Ford Edge approached from the other direction, the Echo shot over the Edge and into the canyon.

      Traffic stopped and Connie was out of Focus and Ed was out of his Element. The other driver was standing on the Edge. They ran to the Edge and heard the sound of the Echo careening along the canyon walls.”

      I bet they were able to send billions more to Ukraine though.

      Phuq our national sovereignty

    600. Cash Cow TM says:


      and Karine Jean-Pierre also said at the press conference that “just as President Biden is pursuing an open ground border, he is being consistent in allowing free and open borders in the air.”

      She further added that the Republicans are all neanderthal who hate all immigrants and are all white supremacists.

      Then she closed the press conference by saying “We all must reduce the divisive name calling where we try to demonize out political opponent over something so trivial as a few classified documents being “somehow” discovered, or a single laptop of Hunter Biden being “somehow” discovered.”

      “It is time we move on from that and focus on the future.”

      “And also, it is a shame we have so much systemic racism in MAGA republican-backed police forces and that millions of people a day are dying from global warming and all women and many men are denied the constitutional rights of a federally paid for abortion.”

      “And please, lets us all tone down the hateful and divisive rhetoric.”

      Jester Jadon’s HYPOCRISY is on full display here.

      He’s a bit sensitive I see and RUSHES to post proof he’s for shooting down the Chinese balloon when mocked but when others show proof of their posts they want Russia defeated or kicked out of Ukraine, he refuses to acknowledge their posts and calls them Russian lapdogs and stooges because they don’t agree with him.

      Does anyone here REALLY think Jester Jadon, some transplant from a chithole country, and that has little allegiance to the US really cares about protecting the US from China? To him, it’s all about making money and not freedom or democracy.

      I would bet if it came down to it, Jester Jadon will take his nest egg he made at the generosity of American citizens and go elsewhere when the time comes to defend America from the Chinese commies.

      1st, there was ample opportunity to shoot this down before it came close to populated areas. Think Montana people!

      2nd, does anyone believe the US did not have eyes on this balloon as soon as or before it came into American airspace? So again, they had ample opportunity to take it out.

      3rd, if it were not for the video posted by civilians, does anyone think Biden and team would have shared this risk with the public?

The Canada Forces have to get approval for a plane go carry a missile, get approval to release a missile from storage, more approvals to arm the missile and last, get approval from Ho Chi Trudeau to fire the missile.”

      The British military’s supply of ammunition would run dry in just one day in a direct engagement with Russia as a result of years of spending cuts to the nation’s defence, a former top general has warned.

      General Sir Richard Barrons, who formerly served as the Joint Forces chief, claimed that spending cuts have depleted the British military to such an extent that, in a hot war with Russia, the UK would run out of ammunition and artillery shells within just one day.

      According to research conducted by The Sun newspaper, the United Kingdom’s ammunition plants would need at least one year to produce the amount of shells currently used by the Ukrainians in their conflict with Russia.

    622. Tgca says:

      Gordy is wrong about DeSanctimonius in his 646 post being responsible for registering more GOP voters than his predecessors.

      I’ve tried to explain this to him in the past with data taken directly from the official Floreedah elections website showing voter registrations by year but he refers to DeSanctimonius talking points instead.

      I will show him once again that Floreedah has been trending Red for quite some time and the fact that total GOP registrations finally exceeded Dems in 2021 does not mean the credit goes to DeSanctimonius, though of course he deserves SOME credit.

      In fact, there were larger registrations of GOP voters in earlier years that significantly exceeded those during the DeSanctimonius years, as I will show.

      It’s like saying the stock market exceeding 20,000 under Obama 1st was attributable to him growing the stock market even though the stock market has been trending up nearly every year for decades.

      Just like it was only a matter of time that the stock market passed 20,000, it was also only a matter of time, based on past trends, that GOP voters would exceed Dem voter registrations in Floreedah as the state became MORE Red.

      It simply is NOT TRUE that DeSanctimonius turned Floreedah red. Look at voting patterns and the GOP lock on the state in the legislature, gubbernorships, and major public offices, all held by the GOP, most for 25+ years.

      In addition, Floreedah picked up a number of new voters since 2020 because of relocations due to COVID where people can work remotely.

    623. Tgca says:

      Floreedah GOP registration as a percent of total registration increased from the high 20% in the 1970s to around 40% in the 1990s. Then it dropped down to high 30% in the 2000s. It has been around 35% to 36% most of the last 12 years. In 2010 it was 36%. It is now 36.5% in 2022.

      Indy/Other registration has ballooned and is responsible for the roughly 5% decrease for the GOP and 16% decrease for the Dems over the last 30 years while Indys/Others increased by 21% during that same time.

      Growth in Indys/Other was about 3% in Scott’s 1st term but then decreased to about .5% in his 2nd term and then increased again about 2% under DeSanctimonius, and outpaced growth in the GOP registration under both of them.

      Since 1971, the GOP has increased voter registration by a net of 4.3M votes compared to 2.6M for Dems and 4.1M for Indy/Others.

      The voter distribution for part was:


      In % it was:


      Net change:


      As you can see, very bad news for Dems over 50 years.

      In 1971, the voter registration distribution was 28% GOP, 69% Dem, and 3% Indy/Other.

      Very bad news for the Dems.

    624. Tgca says:

      653 post should so negative 35% fir Dems in last table. The 26% us increase for Indy/Other.

    625. Tgca says:

      Here is the net growth of Floreedah registered voters since 1971, as totaled from the FL Elections website. Party voter registration is listed by year so I summed them by each gubbernor’s term.


      01. DeSanct (G) 2015-2018___593_____(48)______595
      02. Scott (G) 2015-2018______536_____348______526
      03. Scott (G) 2011-2014______140_______16______614
      04. Crist (G) 2007-2010______122______415______293
      05. Bush (G) 2003-2006_____309______240______512
      06. Bush (G) 1999-2002_____284______225______489
      07. Chiles (D) 1995-1998_____580______486______701
      08. Chiles (D) 1991-1994_____299_______96______134
      09. Martinez (D) 1987-1990___410______(65)______55
      10. Graham (D) 1983-1986____539______148_______78
      11. Graham (D) 1979-1982____321______254______73
      12. Askew(D) 1975-1978______143______374______79
      13. Askew(D) 1971-1974_______61_______44______29
      Total _____________________4,337____2,534____4,179

      As you can see, the greatest gain in raw GOP registration voters were ranked as follows:

      1st, Chiles____________879K
      2nd, Graham__________860K
      3rd, Scott____________676K
      4th, DeSanctimonius___593K

      Note the 2 largest gains in GOP registration occurred during Dem gubbernor’s.

      Now comparing raw voter increases from gubbernor to gubbernor is misleading because it doesn’t account for population and registration voter growth at different periods.

      So if we instead look at GOP registration growth by percentage of voter registration at gubbernor terms, we get the highest growth percentages of GOP registrations as follows:

      1st, Martinez (D)____________102%
      2nd, Graham (D) 2nd term_____70%
      3rd, Chiles (D) 2nd term_______57%
      4th, DeSanctimonius (R)_______52%

      Martinez was greater than 100% because we are only looking at GOP registration growth and there was a decrease in Dem growth in his term.

      If you analyze it by % of total registered voters, a more accurate assessment, then ironically, the greatest growth in GOP voter registration were in Dem gubbernorships, occupying the top 5 spots with Scott and DeSanctimonius tied for 6th spot.

      1st, Graham (D) 2nd term_____9.6%
      2nd, Chiles (D) 2nd term______7%
      3rd, Martinez (D)____________6.8%
      4th, Graham (D) 1st term_____6.6%
      5th, Chiles (D) 1st term_______4.6%
      6th, Scott (R) 2nd term_______4%
      6th, DeSanctimonius (R)______4%

    626. Tgca says:

      So in conclusion, it is just NOT TRUE that DeSanctimonius has turned Floreedah RED. It’s been trending there all along. In fact, Floreedah is LESS Red by voter registration ALONE than it was in the 1990s and 2000s, as more folks have registered as Indy/Other.

      Under DeSanctimonius, more people registered Indy/Other than GOP.

      Floreedah has turned from a Deep Blue state in the 1970s to a Red state in the 2000s.

      Just like Texas changed and it’s not attributable to any one gubbernor or political issue.

      This is why I have issues with the DeSanctimonius sycophants. They routinely GREATLY EXAGGERATE his accomplishments and distort facts. I just proved, using the registration history on the official Floreedah elections website that Gordy is mistaken in his posts on DeSanctimonius.

      DeSanctimonius sycophants won’t accept he is a good gubbernor which I give him credit for. They MUST proclaim him to be the BEST EVER and no one else can compare.

      I find that ABSURD and it turns me off to him.

      Fact 2 Desantis’s margin of victory in percentage terms and absolute totals is the largest ever for any GOP Governor. MORE significant if you look down Ballot 2022 was a total, unprecedented wipeout of the Democrat Party at virtually every level.
      Fact 3 EVEN More Important, DeSantis, and the GOP, by your own logic and numbers, made unprecedented inroads among the Unaffiliated and even Democrat registered voters, Many are becoming de fact Republicans
      Fact 4 Up till November Florida was still considered a “Purple State” by almost all prognosticators, where too close to call was the Norm. Do you, or anyone else, think that now?
      Fact5( to be). Any bets on how Trump will fare against DeSantis in the 2024 GOP primary? I’ll start at DeSantis plus 30?
      Fact 6.My vow as of this second is I refuse going forward to engage Jason over Ukraine/China/”free trade, and you over Desantis as useless exercises.

      According to official Floreedah elections website, the change in GOP registrations were as noted in the table below so I don’t know where you get your numbers from, which is nearly twice what the state shows registered for GOP during that timeframe 2022.

      It also does not make sense because the greatest expected change in voter registration for all parties are usually in presidential election years, followed by state election years, as people make sure they’re registered to vote in key elections.

      For your statement to be accurate, your source is using a different methodology (dates or netting) than the official state numbers OR the official Floreedah website is WRONG by year and then the 2020 election year registration in Floreedah would have had to be the lowest in years as well, just the opposite the website shows and that makes no sense because we know the 4 year net under DeSanctimonius, and we also know that total 2020 voter registration increased 1.1M in 2020 from 13.5M to 14.6M. Where did all those voters go in 2020 then because your statement suggests the GOP got only approximately approximately 28% of those new voters in 2020 while the Dems got like 32% and we know that is not true.

      Your math is not working out. You can’t have the same net 4 year increase, which we agree on, but then have nearly double increases in 2022 without expecting an offsetting decrease in other years.

      The total MUST equal the sum of the parts.

      Another reason your 2022 numbers don’t make sense is because according to the Floreedah election website, there was only an increase of 249K in TOTAL voter registration in 2022 from 14.29M to 14.53M registered voters. That means to tie to your numbers of 340K for the GOP alone, 137% increase in total voter registration went to the GOP in 2022, offset by net 37% decrease in Dems and Indy/Other when we know that’s impossible because the Floreedah election website reports that in 2022 the biggest gain in voter registrations were the Indy/Other at 213K which is consistent with most of the last decade, Indy/Other are the fastest growing voter registrants in Floreedah, they’ve eaten away at both Dems and the GOP.

      Again, your math DOES NOT WORK if we go by the official Floreedah elections website which tracks registrations annually by party.

      Here’s the actual registered voters and net change in each year under DeSanctimonius per the official Floreedah elections website.

      If you have a problem with these numbers, contact DeSanctimonius because his administration administers this website.

      Year_____GOP Reg Voters___Net Change

    637. Tgca says:

      More evidence Gordy misinterprets and fails to understand voting trends in Floreedah.

      According to the Floreedah election website, the 4 year increase in GOP voter registration under Scott in his 2nd term and DeSanctimonius in his 1st term are as follows.

      Gubbernor ___________Term__________GOP


      So they were pretty close of one another within 9% increase in their terms (and that’s before we factor in a roughly 1M increase in population the last 4 years) but we are to believe it is a fluke for Scott to get that many GOP voters registered but EVIDENCE of GREATNESS for DeSanctimonius, instead of a continuing trend we’ve seen for decades?

      Had Scott had a 3rd term, does anyone here think he would not have gotten similar increase in GOP voter registrations to DeSanctimonius?

      The trends predict this out. It is NOT solely or even mostly attributable to DeSanctimonius. It’s a continuing trend as we see in other GOP states in the south.

      Sure, DeSanctinonius can take credit for it happening on his watch but the truth is more complex than Gordy believes in his simplistic views.

      Also, under Scott, he got within 9% of DeSanctimonius even before people fled to Floreedah to live under DeSnctimonius, at least according to Gordy.

      So is Gordy suggesting if not for COVID then, LESS people would have moved to Floreedah and then the trend would have turned downward from Scott to DeSanctimonius?

      Can’t have it both ways? If GOP growth was COVID in 2020 onward, then what was it under Scott? Could it be a continuing trend as I’ve noted?

    638. Tgca says:

      I don’t trust Gordy’s number because he often sources DeSanctimonius sycophants.

      Recently he said, under DeSanctimonius, Floreedah is #1 in school education. If he’s talking K-12 then…

      that is total BULLDINKY!

      Every source I’ve seen shows Floreedah nowhere near the 1st ranking in education…and I googled state and reliable resources on education like US News and World Report which publishes info annually on education trends. I’ve seen Floreedah public education recently listed anywhere from 16 to 27, depending on the surveys and times.

      I live in south Floreedah where it makes up roughly a 3rd of the state. Anyone familiar with the schools here in south Floreedah know it’s not the Creme de la Creme with its nearly 900K students, representing a 3rd of the states school population.

    639. Tgca says:

      Gordy makes it sound like all was bad until DeSanctimonius took office but forgets he was handed a state in EXCELLENT condition on a platter in 2019.

      Nearly every worthwhile positive thing to talk about in Floreedah today existed prior to 2019, and DeSanctimonius may have improved upon it or kept it from going south but he did NOT make Floreedah the success it is today. That happened over years and much more attributable to Scott turning around the state in his 8 years when Floreedah was a shambles between 2008 and 2010.

      Crime is another example Gordy cites. Well, crime stats have certainly gotten better over the past decade in Floreedah but also keep in mind:

      Floreedah ranks as the number one state with least reporting crimes nationally to the FBI with CA 2nd.

      So I question any numbers compiled by any state alone and not reported nationally for review and comparison. We know certain states withhold info at times because it makes them look bad.

    641. Tgca says:

      Ok. I’m done with correcting Gordy’s BS about Floreedah was a nothing place until DeSanctimonius came along.

      Floreedah has been a great place for years.

      Many people move here not because of its gubbernor but because of the weather and no state income taxes, a trend well before anyone ever heard of DeSanctimonius.

      …and for the record, Floreedah is only one southern state people are flocking to. There are others as well that have seen their percent population increase more than Floreedah.

      Many people working remotely moved to Floreedah. I know! I was one of them before I retired and I know a number of people who have done so as well, especially from the NE. They’ve driven up the cost of housing in south Floreedah tremendously as they work remotely here.

      That has little to do with DeSanctimonius and more to do with their companies allowing them to work from home.

      So again, distorted facts from Gordy.

    642. Tgca says:

      Ok. Sorry! Just one more response to Gordy’s STOOPID comment below.

      Fact 4 Up till November Florida was still considered a “Purple State” by almost all prognosticators, where too close to call was the Norm. Do you, or anyone else, think that now?

      I don’t know what magazines you get delivered to your gated fortress but I don’t think anyone here thought Floreedah was a purple state until Nov 2022.

      Floreedah has had a near supermajority legislature for well over a decade and the GOP also held every statewide office except for Dep’t of Agricultural for years as well. That men’s voters have been voting for the GOP in Floreedah for years.

      To think Floreedah was NOT already a red state when we’ve seen Dem voter registration plummet 9% since 2008 while the GOP % of total registration remained consistent is NOT evidence of a purple state. The Dems have lost an equivalent 1.1M voters in that time extrapolating its share if 2008 to 2022 voter registrations.

      You need to stop reading The DeSanctimonius Times and The Ron and Barbie Report for your political news, and venture outside your GATED fortress.

      Scott gets a lot of credit too. GOP voter registration increased nearly 700K under him, more than any other GOP gubbernor in 50 years.

      Thanks for making my point though that Floreedah was trending red and a number of factors and players contributed to that over the years and NOT just DeSanctimonius as Gordy keeps claiming.

      That has always been my point. Give credit where credit is due and STOP trying make it all about DeSanctimonius, as if he brought the state back from oblivion. It’s silly and NOT supported by facts.

    655. Tgca says:

      675 PityLaw

      Yes, I think Trump is the best nominee suited for 2024 and I support him over any other expected current candidate because he has a proven presidential record and we all know he was denied a 2nd term due to voter fraud and shenanigans, and that’s what 75% of the GOP believes and about 40% of the electorate believes last time I looked at polling in this in 2022, including about a 3rd of Indys.

      I don’t think DeSanctimonius alone is a threat to Trump anymore than Lil Marco was in 2016. I think like Lil’ Marco, DeSanctimonius is the overrated shiny new coin that sycophantic people cling to and that GREATLY exaggerate his record as I have pointed out.

      These people are DESPERATE to have a winner after they got devastated by the 2022 Lil’ Red Ripple so they elevate someone out of desperation. Just like they did with very successful GOP gubbernors Perry and Walker, that walked on water with GOP voters until they crashed and burned nationally, like Lil’ Marco.

      I do not believe DeSnctimonius has done or said anything to connect with working class voters Trump brought into the party. The Midwest and Mid-Atlantic states are NOT Floreedah so trying to compare their electorates as exactly the same is senseless.

      Nothing I see in DeSanctimonius now tells me he will win MI, WI, or PA and without a combination of those states, he cannot win in 2024. Just not possible without him picking off a larger blue state like CO, and that is highly unlikely.

      Trump has won those states before and arguably won them, at least at some level again in 2020 before fraud, the only GOP president to do that in over 30 years.

      Do you deny any of this? Do you accept Trump legitimately lost in 2020?

      If so, offer up analysis and defend it instead of silly proclamations you always make NOT based in fact but your FEELINGS.

      673 Jester Jadon

      Which one of the posts I posted on GOP registration from the official Floreedah elections was BS?

      Name them!

      You can go look them up. I summarized the results from official Floreedah resources above, the 2nd time I’ve done this for Gordy in many months.

      The fact is DESanctimonius did NOT register more GOP voters than others under his tenure. He ranks between 5th or 6th depending on the comparative data used (raw votes vs % of registered voters).

      Just because the GOP finally surpassed Dems in voter registration in 2021 does not mean that milestone was ALL due to DeSanctimonius. That’s inaccurate and is like saying Biden has created the best economy ever because he got the lowest unemployment rate in 50+ years. It’s absurd!

      All my posts were to prove that Gordy was incorrect in his REPEATED comments that DeSanctimonius turned Floreedah Red.

      Scott registered MORE GOP voters than DeSanctimonius did, as did other Dem gubbernors.

      So show me where the BS lies instead of making uncorroborated statements.

    657. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgca confirms that all of his “analysis” is based on cheerleading. Good to know.

      The data is from the Floreedah election website.

      Let’s try this the easy way.

      Did DeSanctimonius register more GOP voters than Scott, Chiles, or Graham?

      I post the actual data from the official Floreedah website.

      The actual numbers are posted in the 1st two tables in post 655.

      Can you count?

      If you say yes, then you agree with Gordy that DeSanctimonius registered more net GOP voters than those I mentioned and you also agree mathematically that 600K is greater than 680K, 860K, and 880K which is new math to me and means my undergrad degree in math is now worthless in the new WOKE world of counting, especially since we now know math is RACIST and those that believe 2+3=5 is an example of white supremacy.

      I’ll be back later to review your NEW math.

    659. Cash Cow TM says:


      “But senior Pentagon officials said on Saturday that suspected Chinese surveillance balloons crossed into the US at least three times during the Trump administration and once earlier in the Biden administration, the Associated Press reported.

      The senior defense official who spoke on background also said “a balloon of this nature” crossed over the continental US before the Biden administration but declined to specify when.

      “It’s happened a few times in recent years to include before this administration. But beyond that, I’m not going to go into the details,” the official said.”

      “Craig Singleton, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told the AP that Chinese surveillance balloons were sighted several times in the past five years. Some of them have been spotted near US military bases in Hawaii, he said, though he did not specify when.”

This is causing widespread protests in Russia, and panic among young men who do not want to die for Mr Putin’s imperial dream. Many are trying to leave Russia. Queues at borders with Georgia, Kazakhstan and Mongolia stretched for several kilometres. The exodus could prove even larger than the one at the beginning of the war, when about 300,000 mostly young Russians fled.
