so, I did just listen to him live on the Buck Sexton / Clay Travis show.  Once I got past Ron's nose-pinch voice, he says the right things and nothing radical.  Now, that's great for people who are already voting for him.  the thing is, he will have to convince some of the punch-you-in-the-face crowd too.  and the undecided.
Now, don't anyone be angry at me.  I'm just pointing the obvious.

His voice is almost as annoying as Ben Shapiro's voice who has his nose stuck way up Ron's behind

General Discussion / Re: The Mexican President is terrified of Ron DeSantis

Trump built some new wall and repaired a lot that was already there, but he was getting constantly attacked with false allegations and other things from the left and even a bogus impeachment attempt. He wanted to put Hillary behind bars but wasn't able to do it because he was getting blocked when he would try to get things done. If the party can be behind him this time better maybe he can actually finish the wall.

General Discussion / The Mexican President is terrified of Ron DeSantis
« Last post by Dan Ben Noah on May 27, 2023, 12:23:10 AM »
Trump never built the wall, so the border situation is basically a Trumpster fire.  But Ron DeSantis (a.k.a. the adult in the room) will actually build a wall, no excuses, so that's why he's haunting the Mexican president's nightmares.

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/saraharnold/2023/05/25/mexican-president-makes-it-clear-where-he-stands-on-a-desantis-2024-ticket-n2623725

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador weighed in on Gov. Ron DeSantis’s decision to run for office in 2024, calling on immigrants to vote against the Republican.

Lopez Obrador urged Hispanics not to support DeSantis, who has been vocal on President Joe Biden’s open border policies, which have wreaked havoc on the United States, calling for stricter security.

“Hopefully, Hispanics in Florida will wake up and not give him one single vote, to not vote for those who persecute migrants, those who don’t respect migrants,” López Obrador said.

The Mexican president accused DeSantis of advocating for “anti-immigrant” policies, adding that the governor had “uncovered himself.”

“As you can see, I wasn’t wrong that all his politicking over migrants was because he wanted to be the Republican Party’s candidate,” López Obrador continued.

Lopez Obrador pleaded with Hispanics to “wake up,” claiming the governor of persecuting illegal migrants. He also took a swing at Gov. Greg Abbott, who has repeatedly condemned the Biden Administration’s lax border policies by shipping illegal aliens to Democrat-run cities.

“The governor of Texas, campaigning, [saying] he will militarize the border and that he will continue building [the] wall; and the governor of Florida, the same, because he wants to be the Republican Party candidate and he’s politicking,” he said.

Earlier this month, DeSantis signed the most robust anti-illegal immigration legislation in the country to combat Biden’s damaging border crisis, which has seen more than 6.3 million illegal migrants flood the border.

“The Biden Border Crisis has wreaked havoc across the United States and has put Americans in danger,” DeSantis said in a statement. “In Florida, we will not stand idly by while the federal government abandons its lawful duties to protect our country. The legislation I signed today gives Florida the most ambitious anti-illegal immigration laws in the country, fighting back against reckless federal government policies and ensuring the Florida taxpayers are not footing the bill for illegal immigration.”

Let's be honest, the T-rump-ranger is no conservative, and neither are the drawer-drekking Drumpf drones who support him.  Trump said Andrew Cuomo is a better governor than Ron DeSantis.  Trump gave leftists like Chris Wray and Fauci free rein to increase the Democrat stranglehold on our institutions because for some reason he doesn't know how to say "you're fired."  Ron DeSantis knows exactly how to fix this, if elected.  (Don't worry, I didn't say that stuff on facebook or twitter.)

General Discussion / Re: DeSantis vs. Trump on racial issues (JTF video)
« Last post by Rubystars on May 26, 2023, 10:20:57 AM »
As far as the racial commentary I think that it's really not a racial thing when it comes to black people and how they often behave in America.

Around the world black people don't like American black people for many of the same reasons we often get frustrated with that culture. I don't know if you saw the recent video from the Jamaican lady who won't rent her property to black Americans on vacation because of all the problems they caused claiming they want to demand a lot of free things.

I needed a major surgery back in 2021 and my surgeon was a brilliant black woman from Malawi. She grew up in a small village with a dirt floor house and she's risen up to not only be a world class surgeon here in the USA but to create modern health centers back in Malawi as well.  My surgery went perfectly and I've had zero complications and the scarring was very minimal.

I trusted her a lot more knowing she was from Africa and not the USA.

It's just a culture thing here and a lot of black Americans realize that's a problem too and they do what they can to try to change it from within but it's definitely not something that can shift overnight.

I just checked in for the first time in a while and wow you still haven't aged whatsoever Chaim. That's a pretty cool ability.

Good to see David in a video too.

I like Donald Trump better because the leftists have a much stronger reaction to him. He's a narcissist and a blowhard but he sends the left crazy. DeSantis seems like more of a regular politician type.

I'd be happy with either as president but in a primary I'm choosing Trump.

General Discussion / DeSantis pledges to fire FBI director on day one
« Last post by Dan Ben Noah on May 26, 2023, 12:15:25 AM »
Trump appointed Christopher Wray as FBI director based on the recommendation of Chris Christie and the Democrats.  Now the FBI is being weaponized against normal, decent Americans.  Ron DeSantis will change this.

https://twitter.com/DanBenNoah7/status/1661947209808502784

With Ron DeSantis officially in the 2024 race comes real questions about how he’ll handle some of the more contentious issues facing any possible Republican president. Chief among them is what he’d do to combat the administrative overreach being practiced by the bureaucracy, with the behavior of the FBI being front and center in that discussion.

For example, on Wednesday, Rep. James Comer revealed that current FBI Director Christopher Wray has ignored a subpoena for an unclassified FD-1023 form. That form allegedly provides evidence of a bribery scheme involving Joe Biden while he was vice president. Instead of cooperating with Congress, the FBI is once again acting as the president’s personal protection force.

On the front, DeSantis wasted no time and pulled no punches. When asked by Trey Gowdy on Fox News following his kickoff with Elon Musk, the Florida man said he would fire Wray on day one. That clocks in as the most definitive pledge by any candidate so far in how they’ll deal with the controversial FBI director.

I’m sure that answer surprised Gowdy, as he is the type that has defended Wray as a misunderstood soul. How anyone could still believe that after everything that has happened, especially since Biden took office, is beyond me, though. Wray is as obstructionist and corrupt as James Comey was. He’s just more diplomatic about it.

Under Wray’s leadership, the FBI has targeted pro-lifers, targeted Catholics, ignored and obstructed investigations into the Biden Family, made false statements about left-wing radicalism, and misused surveillance provisions (again) to illegally spy on Americans. That is not an exhaustive list, but I’d be here all day if I kept going.

It’s simply a no-brainer to fire Wray with prejudice the moment any Republican takes off, which is why it’s so perplexing that other candidates haven’t taken that stand. The closest has been Vivek Ramaswamy, who said he’d shut down the FBI. I’d like to hear how he actually plans to accomplish that, but I’d assume it would require firing Wray even if Ramaswamy hasn’t said that. As to the other third-tier candidates in Nikki Haley, Asa Hutchinson, and Tim Scott, they are obviously not the type to say anything negative about Wray.

Meanwhile, in his most recent commentary on the issue, Donald Trump took the most non-committal position possible, blaming Chris Christie for Wray’s nomination while saying “time will tell” on whether it was a mistake to put him in as FBI director. To be frank, as I documented above, time has already told the story several times over.

TRUMP: I put Chris Wray in because I wanted to have somebody in there that everybody including the other side really wanted. It may not have been the right move. Let’s see, time will tell, okay? But I wanted to have somebody in the FBI, because I’m an honorable guy, I’m an honest guy. I may have made a mistake. But I put somebody in that the other side–everybody agreed to. You know who recommended him to me? Chris Christie. Okay? He recommended him. And that’s okay. I don’t mind that. I’ve taken Chris Christie’s recommendations before. And other people wanted Christopher Wray, and people from the other side wanted Christopher Wray.

The question isn’t who recommended Wray. It’s not even who supported Wray five years ago when he was elevated to lead the FBI (with Trump obviously being chief among them). The question is what all of the 2024 candidates are willing to do about it now. Trump doesn’t want to admit he made a mistake, but that’s not an excuse to continue beating around the bush on a figure as insidious as Wray. He needs to take a position and stick to it because the stakes are too high.

Hopefully, every candidate will follow DeSantis’ lead and vow to fire Wray on day one. I’d love to know that no matter who ends up as the nominee, such a serious issue will be dealt with.

General Discussion / Gov. DeSantis cracks down on voter fraud
« Last post by Dan Ben Noah on May 25, 2023, 11:51:09 PM »
Running for President doesn't stop DeSantis from getting things done.

https://twitter.com/DanBenNoah7/status/1661941918165549056

It’s officially Presidential Primary season after Ron DeSantis threw his hat in the ring on Wednesday, in an official campaign launch on Twitter Spaces with Elon Musk. But, Federal Elections Commission paperwork is not the only filing of the momentous day. Florida Governor DeSantis signed into law Senate Bill 7050, which makes 27 elections code reforms to state law including clarifying the “resign-to-run” statute, removing ambiguity regarding DeSantis’ presidential bid.

Some highlights of the reforms are:

Individuals who are voting for the first time and do not have a verified social security number or Florida ID must cast their votes in person.
Third-party organizations involved in voter registration must renew their registration with the state for each election cycle.
The bill broadens the list of required maintenance activities.
The frequency of reporting is reduced from monthly to quarterly during the qualifying period.
Fines for violations of election laws are increased.
The requirement for supervisors to publish certain information in a local newspaper’s legal ads is eliminated, allowing them to instead post those notices on their website or the county’s website.
The training for signature verification of mail-in ballots is expanded to include staff members whose job responsibilities involve signature verification.
The time frame for voter registration groups to submit completed forms to election offices is shortened from 14 days to 10 days.
Penalties for late submission of forms are increased from $50 for each late application to $50 for each day the application is overdue.

Predictably, Elias Law Group has already filed a lawsuit, in collaboration with the NAACP, claiming it’s racist to make third-party voter registration groups… file paperwork, or something.

The defendants named in the case are Florida Secretary of State Cord Byrd, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody, and Florida’s 67 supervisors of elections. The plaintiffs are Florida NAACP, Equal Ground Education Fund, Voters of Tomorrow Action, Disability Rights Florida, Alianza for Progress, Alianza Center, UnidosUS, and Florida Alliance for Retired Americans.

In a statement for the plaintiffs, Elias Law Group wrote:

SB 7050’s restrictions on voter registration infringe upon third-party voter registration organizations’ constitutional rights to free speech and association and violate the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution because they were purposefully enacted, at least in part, with a racially discriminatory intent to discriminate against Black and Hispanic voters and have the effect . . . of denying, abridging, or suppressing the right to vote of otherwise eligible voters on account of race, ethnicity, or color.

Marc Elias, founder of Democracy Docket, and his allies regularly engage in elections lawfare. During the 2022 Midterm elections, Elias Law Group and others sued ballot box watchers in Arizona and lost due to the pesky ol’ First Amendment. They are also suing over a Voter ID law in Ohio.

Meanwhile, Republican voter registration enthusiast Scott Presler took the opportunity to remind voters of states with closed primaries, Florida being among them.

Presler wrote:

America:

There are states across the country w/ closed primaries.

This means you MUST be registered as a Republican in order to vote in a Republican primary.

CA, FL, KY, NV, NY, OR, PA, register to vote as a Republican today

Presler linked vote.gov as a resource to check your state laws. As Republicans wrestle out the nomination and look ahead to casting their ballots in the presidential primaries, remember that if you aren’t registered to vote, now is the time to do so. And, it would also be a good time to make sure you weren’t “automated” out of your party preference, especially if you live in a closed primary state.

If elected, Ron DeSantis will hopefully start bussing illegal aliens to Mexico City.

https://twitter.com/DanBenNoah7/status/1661938224233627648

It turns out that when you have an effective executive leader who enforces law and order, it actually works in making sure that rules are followed in society.

For example, consider that illegal aliens are already “self-deporting” themselves out of Florida after Governor and 2024 presidential candidate Ron DeSantis (R) enacted one of the toughest immigration laws in the entire country.

“We’re fleeing the place we fled to,” one illegal alien told Axios. “I remember when my mother sat me down and said, ‘things are bad; we have to leave,’ and I had to tell her that same thing.”

The law requires a number of new measures such as requiring that employers to use E-Verify to check the employment eligibility of employees, and fines employers who fail to use E-Verify $1,000 per day. At the same time, it suspends the licenses of any employer who knowingly employs illegal aliens, and makes using a fake ID to gain employment a felony. Similarly, it bars local governments and non-governmental organizations from issuing identification cards to illegal immigrants.

“I am leaving everything behind, everything that I worked for, having already started from scratch 16 years ago,” the illegal alien, who was brought as a child, also told Axios.

In response to the legislation, the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) issued a travel advisory, saying that Florida is now “hostile and dangerous.”

“Laws like this, that do nothing more than harass immigrants, are bad for a state’s economy,” Lydia Guzmán, a staffer who leads LULAC’s immigration committee, told CNN.

Well, that’s not quite true. This law makes sure that illegal aliens who should not be in the country aren’t. It also ensures that employers who take advantage of cheap labor  — instead of hiring Americans are punished.

The law hasn’t even gone into effect yet, but CBS News reported that certain organizations are already mobilizing to help illegals leave the state.

Of course, law is only as strong as it is enforced. Perhaps these illegal aliens know that DeSantis’ track record of enforcing law and order — such as removing a Soros-backed prosecutor who was not doing his job as required —  indicates that Florida won’t be afraid to carry out its authority to the fullest extent of this new law.

Of course, a governor shouldn’t even have to have a law like this in the first place. It’s the federal government’s duty to protect American borders and deport illegal aliens. But when the president abdicates that responsibility, states must step up and do that job to protect American citizens.
