Eleven weeks from today will be the midterm elections, which promise to be the most consequential in a generation. This means eleven weeks from tomorrow, as pundits on cable news networks and talk radio weigh in on their post-election analysis, the attention of political strategists will have already begun to look forward two years to the 2024 election, with particular attention being paid to the presidential election. And there is one potential candidate who continues to receive good news regarding his actual results: Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
But Liz Cheney has now lifted the veil. She’s not some principled, well-intentioned conservative who loves the Republican Party but simply has a problem with one key member. She’s not merely an establishment candidate who has an issue with Trump and is fine with everyone else. Based on comments from an interview published yesterday, Liz Cheney has a problem with both Trump and the second-most popular Republican in the country.
Knucklehead Of The Week: Suspended By DeSantis, Florida State Attorney Andrew Warren Has A Pathetic Response
On the other hand, you, Mr. Warren, were elected to enforce the laws passed by those lawmakers and signed into law by DeSantis. You weren’t elected to write laws. You weren’t elected to approve them. You were elected to simply ensure they are properly applied and executed. But that was clearly too much to ask, so now you don’t have a job. And for that reason, sir, you are a knucklehead.
DeSantis again nails it, and we also see his political instincts coming through. Floridians, and Americans, are compassionate, but we’re also sensible, and the left’s stance on transgenderism is beyond incoherent; it’s insane. DeSantis seems to understand that focusing on this issue is a winner for him politically and hammering away at it will only help him. So many Republicans shy away from this subject, but that’s a mistake.
But that’s not the only good news for the governor and first lady. According to Fox News, the governor is also raking in campaign funds. Last month, the DeSantis campaign raised $2.297 million, and Friends of Ron DeSantis, his PAC, has hauled in $8.156 million to total more than $113 million during the current election cycle.
Not only did DeSantis sign this bill, he signed it in Brandon, Florida. We’re all familiar with the phrase “Let’s Go Brandon” being a stand-in for the more vulgar “F— Joe Biden” chants that began emerging last summer. But DeSantis chose to sign this bill in Brandon, Florida only weeks after the original incident occurred that propelled “Let’s Go Brandon.” DeSantis himself helped give the movement its legs by signing the law in that town.
On the other side is DeSantis, who is calmer and more focused than Trump, but hasn’t had as much time to prove himself an enemy of the elites and show that he’ll fight in the sort of savage, no holds barred style that Trump does. Additionally, many on the MAGA-right are worried that DeSantis has neo-con sympathies and are disturbed by the fact that the never-Trumper, Bill Kristol crowd supports him.
As you can tell from the tweet, DeSantis was responding to a Heritage Foundation video, in which Kara Frederick, a research fellow at the Heritage Foundation, testifies in a House Energy and Commerce Committee, Communications and Technology Subcommittee hearing, describing a massive disparity in who is censored by the Big Tech Masters of the Universe and the tools that Facebook uses to censor right-leaning content.
The proposed curriculum will include the use of “portraits in patriotism” to tell stories of Americans who have been civic-minded, and will include “first-person accounts of victims of other nations’ governing philosophies who can compare those philosophies with those of the United States.”
