DeSantis was an up and coming star of the WEF. He is supported by the Bush family. Notice the shock from both left and right when he initially stated we shouldn't be in Ukraine. Then take note of walking that statement back. DeSantis has been installed to splinter the Maga movement. We won't notice though because we are stupid.

Alex has allowed his deep hatred of Trump to blind him to the fact that no other candidate has nothing to gain, except maybe bragging rights. Do we enjoy how much Trump loves himself or berates others? No, but who else has the balls to stand up and fight. Not DeSantis and not any of the politicians who do not serve anyone but themselves.

Yeh. A Wef star would go against Corona restrictions. A WEF star would go against ESG. A WEF star would push a six week abortion ban. Trump's our guy because in 2018 because he pushed amnesty rather than the wall. Trump's our guy because he supports Disney's tranny stuff. Trump's our guy because he worked with Fauci. Wait...

I am with you 100% Joe C.....Trump had plenty of opportunity both during COVID and lately to admit he made some huge mistakes during the scamdemic....the only thing I hear out of his mouth is "get vaccinated" although someone finally told him it was not gaining him brownie points at his rallies. If he is the republican nominee....I will vote for him but will hold my breath. I am sick of hearing the rumors about DeSantis and a close relationship with the Bush family. I would imagine the Bush family probably do support DeSantis....cannot imagine they support DJT. Love the idea of a DeSantis and Kennedy sign in my yard. Although I live rural so will have to go on the front fence.

Good point. Trump LOVES Trump though I believe he really does love America. Trump isn’t a card arguing member of the military industrial complex. This is why he is so hated by the Demonrats. It’s also why many republicans also distance themselves. He did speak out in opposition to the Iraq invasion and I remember thinking “why does anyone care what Donald Trump thinks?” I couldn’t stomach Trump before he ran for President. It’s still cringy to hear him speak but not as much as it is to see Biden do anything. Or Kamala for that matter. I’d be all in on impeaching Biden if it didn’t mean Kamala might step in. That idea is both frightening and insane. So much so that I pray he doesn’t have any debilitating or life threatening events common to the elderly. I’d rather have Obama back than Kamala. Now I’m gonna have nightmares just for saying it.

You know, a lot of people had the scales fall from their eyes during the whole Covid scam. Now I read Matt Taibbi, and Naomi Wolf, and Alex Berenson, and I am seriously considering changing my voter registration so I can support RFK Jr. vs. the Brandon regime.

DeSantis when he was in Congress apparently swallowed the party line on trade-- "free trade" deals like NAFTA and TPP are good; tariffs only hurt consumers so they are ipso facto bad. He embraced that conventional wisdom, as did pretty much every Republican not named Pat Buchanan or Ron Paul. And so did the base. And then Trump came along and showed us all how wrong it was.

Does DeSantis now support these trade deals he once supported? Or has he come around to Trump's way of thinking on China, and trade, and tariffs? I wish I knew.

On Covid alone, I would take DeSantis. But I need to know where DeSantis's loyalties lie as far as trade policy before I pick one or the other.

All great points. I like DeSantis but didn’t like Trump. I liked what Trump did for many people I know including Vets. I like what RD has done in Fla but also will be watching closely on these other issues. I am a determined conservative but have compassion for every sector of life, but don’t worship at the altar of Gaia.it is up to humanity to be good stewards of this magnificent world but we live here too. Throwing a huge portion of the world under the bus and back into abject poverty many have clawed their way out of is EVIL.

You,my dear, are a moron. Did Trump have the balls to stand up and fight against Fauci and Birx? He Even had Scott Atlas advising him and still sided with the idiots. Trump is easily duped, a poor judge of character, and afraid to bring aboard Alpha males that will tell him the truth to his face. We don’t need a vindictive loser to get elected just so he can set out on a campaign or revenge and self serving. Wake up. Trump still hails Operation Warp Speed and the. COvid Vaccines as SUCCESSES!! My God…this is as dangerous as his responses during the initial wave of Covid. And your fantasy claims of DeSantis being backed by WEF and Republican establishment is just as retarded as your continued cult following of Trump. Especially after he single handedly allowed the Bureaucracy to foist the biggest scam upon America while also giving them the keys to the Election hen house so they could steal the election right under his dim witted nose.

Trump is not fit to be President again. As for DeSantis not ever getting the Trump Vote…..another fantasy of yours. I voted for Trump twice and there’s no way he gets my vote again.

Bravo!!!!!!! My sentiments exactly. This country and the world are in the current mess as a result of the actions and non-actions of DJT.

Kinda if a day late and a dollar short. My better half still loves Trump and he looked at me like it was sacrilege when I declared that I would vote for DeSantis in the primary but if Trump wins that I would vote for him over ANY democrat. I didn’t used to despise the democrats but over the past decade they’ve been hijacked by leftist socialists. That’s not good for America. I love America, warts and all. I am not a heartless money grabbing right wing bigot. Wasn’t raised that way. That’s all the left does, divide to conquer and they have had some success as too many people are too lazy to check their crazy claims themselves. I learned a long time ago that it’s not wise to take the words of pretty much any person of authority at face value. The internet has been a double edged sword in that it offers easy ways to research everything but now has become a tool for brainwashing. Well that’s been a part of media for at least the last century. Marketing is a science; we are the lab mice.

Victor Davis Hansen's great analogy is "Trump is like chemotherapy for the cancer", you gotta be rough to kill the cancer. My father was diagnosed with pancreatic and given 3 months to live. He drove himself 104 miles, both ways, for his chemo, and lived 6 extra years. Many people wouldn't fight like he did, and many told him he was doing more worse than good by tiring himself out and getting cranky as hell, and many didn't know what they were talking about. My father was an old school New York City hippy professor who moved to a cabin in the Montana woods and hated Trump. A year before he died I said to my father "stop ranting against the only man who fights harder than you", and immediately apologized. My dad's gone now, and I no longer apologize for agreeing with Victor D Hansen. Rome is burning, it's a Defcon 1, and I'd love to see a Trump/Desantis ticket with safeguards against a repeat of the rampant fraud we saw in 2020. Well, not all of us saw it, but we all had to live with the results.

I agree with much of your points, but please stop with the “book ban” nonsense. HE did not remove books like Huckleberry Finn; that was the Democrats. He simply took pornographic books out of elementary schools.

Alex, Desantis didn't "pick a fight with Disney" and he didn't indiscriminately throw himself into the culture war just to peel off Trump voters. Disney picked a fight with him. He was minding his own business passing a law through the duly elected legislature to keep elementary school kids from being exposed to sexualized education, when Disney decided to throw their massive weight against the people of Florida. What was he supposed to do??

I truly wish you could see that covid madness, sexualizing kids, open borders, climate change, diversity, racism, etc, etc, etc, etc, are all cut from the same piece of cloth.

You are correct. Disney inserted itself into FL politics. Disney chose to go against parents who don't want their kids sexualized in elementary school. By the way Alex, Disney doesn't make fun films that kids enjoy anymore. They make films for kids with woke characters that lack humor. Most have been panned by audiences.

I think the whole COVID debacle was designed to destroy Trump, his economy and his admin. Fauci was well aware of the COVID virus. It is a patent held by the US government since the ‘90’s. His own name is on it as department head. There was NOTHING novel about it. They also knew it wasn’t a particularly strong strain, likely to cause fatalities in the general population. If they could tank the economy they had a shot at shedding Trump. Election shenanigans were only needed in a select and isolated couple venues. The massive mail in ballot scheme would do the heavy lifting to tilt things enough and by god, it worked. It’s precisely why mail in voting is not allowed at all in Europe. We really need to secure our elections. Conservatives will never win again

Sorry...but I have to work for a living. Yesterday was a work day. I never said I blamed Trump for COVID. I do blame him for allowing the Fauci team to destroy both the American and world economy. The real damage began with the lock downs and giving "essential" status to the corporate elite. He was either duped...or he is part of the cabal. I tend to think a little of both. To this very day he still encourages vaccination. Still! Americans dropping dead all around him everyday and he acts like it is no big deal. He also signed the 2020 Executive Order that declared an Emergency that suspended all of our rights and our Constitution. That Emergency Declaration was still in effect until a week or so ago.The Emergency Act allowed the DoD to use secrecy and "immunity grants" in getting the poison to the market and into our arms with zero "informed consent". Trump didn't have to sign this act, but he did. He doesn't have to defend the poison to this day, but he does. I believe that declaration was signed March 18, 2020 but do not have the particular number. What he also did with that declaration......was cause his defeat in the 2020 election. It allowed mail in voting, ballot harvesting out the kazzoo and as a result...he was cheated out of a win. I was a hard core Trump supporter especially in 2016. Heavily involved in both local and state politics. I would love to hear him say he should have fired team Fauci....listened to Scott Atlas.....but no he will not because he thinks he did a great thing with "WARP SPEED". The narcissist in Trump is dangerous...to our health and to our republic. IMHO to which I am entitled. I am no arm chair quarterback. Never in my wildest dreams did I believe I would one day be living in an American totalitarian regime. Yet...here we are. With a stroke of a pen.....Trump began the slide into hell for Americans.. If Trump wins the republican nomination....he will not win the general election. So there is that to consider. We shall see....a lot can happen in 17 months.

Pursuant to this declaration, I direct as follows:

Section 1. Emergency Authority. The Secretary of HHS may exercise the authority under section 1135 of the SSA to temporarily waive or modify certain requirements of the Medicare, Medicaid, and State Children’s Health Insurance programs and of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act Privacy Rule throughout the duration of the public health emergency declared in response to the COVID‑19 outbreak.

Sec. 2. Certification and Notice. In exercising this authority, the Secretary of HHS shall provide certification and advance written notice to the Congress as required by section 1135(d) of the SSA (42 U.S.C. 1320b-5(d)).

Sec. 3. General Provisions. (a) Nothing in this proclamation shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

(i) the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or

(ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.

(b) This proclamation shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

(c) This proclamation is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this thirteenth day of March, in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-fourth.

I personally got the book series Heartstopper taken out of our middle school in Western New York. My 12 yr old checked it out upon a recommendation from a friend. What a piece of trash. Nothing of literary value, but rather an intro to an unhealthy, at times violent, same sex relationship spattered with profanity. Some of the districts here contain LOTS of questionable sexually explicit books. Some of the elementary schools carry a book or two about how your parents may have chosen the wrong gender for you at birth…they assumed you were a girl or a boy. The world is going mad. I do not want classic books like those mentioned in this thread banned….but to think that the school feels my child should be exposed to sexual content without my permission….hell no. All taxpayers should be furious. As someone else mentioned, one can obtain these books from many other sources. It is extremely inappropriate to house these in a school library.

DeSantis proved he can't win when he decided to run. It illustrates he doesn't understand what's going on around him - and aligning with David Sachs, who I quite enjoy on his podcast but who perfectly represents the disconnect from real humans that our entire ruling class has - only further illustrates it.

DeSantis was the leading candidate in '28 by such a wide margin it's ridiculous to consider. For the disaffected, which is a huge crowd, he's not just behind Trump, he's behind Trump and RFK Jr. and probably Vivek.

I completely agree. He made a commitment, and when your first act as reelected governor is to fight with Disney and then flea to start campaigning, it's hard to take you serious. I thought DeSantis had potential, but he speaks to all the ills of politics today. Train up your replacement (Matt Gaetz, maybe?), run the state as you committed to doing, and then prepare for a presidential run in '24. This whole thing was laid out for him. But people care more about stopping Trump than they do about anything else, so here we are.

And that disqualifies him, because if you believe stopping Trump is a good reason to run for president, you don't understand the people you're pretending to represent.

Though I'll always hold against Trump that he didn't form a true and competitive 3rd party, so part of me is hoping he'll lose the GOP nomination after he gets disqualified for something ridiculous and outlandish, and then hopefully the Freedom Party becomes a formal political party and now we're starting to have some fun...

Your argument has nothing to do with why Alex doesn’t like Trump. If only it were a 1 issue hang-up. My argument you never really addressed. You only deflected it because it is so on target🎯Can you tell me why you believe DJT is an awful person? Did that information come from the propaganda machine? How can you not see that it’s a psy op just like “ safe and effective?

Why is it the Unreported Truths folks still don't seem to understand the following:

-the top of the Org Chart for our Covid Response was the NSA,

-the contractors were military,

-Pfizer/Moderna were mere "branding partners" and

-Fauci with regard to covid was the Cover-Up man charged with condescendingly lying to Congress at every turn and controlling the propaganda campaign ?????

It’s kind of like remodeling an old home- sometimes you’re scared to peel back that first layer of wallpaper, or to take a look in the attic to check out the wiring, because you just might find that you’ve got more work than you bargained for, and you got swindled on the deal. That’s where most people are. They want to put lipstick on a pig and call it good. It’s a lot easier to know something’s a total tear down going in.

You should stick to covid and drug commentaries Alex. Your inner liberal keeps asserting itself when you stray beyond that. It seems to be driven by some version of the "self-doubt" quality that you accuse Trump of.
