Ron DeSantis prevails in brutal Florida governors race

Polls showed Republican Ron DeSantis and Democrat Andrew Gillum very close leading up to election day. Gillum held a single-digit lead in all major polls the final week of the campaign.

Gillum came under fire for accepting gifts from a person he believed to be a local developer seeking favors. It turned out being an undercover FBI agent. Text messages and emails showed multiple instances of potential corruption surrounding campaign finances. It appeared he was taking bribes.

This race was one that brought out the stars on both sides. President Trump and many of his proxies came to campaign for DeSantis. President Obama came to campaign for Gillum. Millions of dollars of outside money came in to sway the election, especially from Democrats who saw Gillum as a rising star in the party.

In the final days leading up to the election, Gillum’s hopes were higher. Every poll showed him with a single-digit lead. DeSantis, who President Trump unexpectedly endorsed during the primaries, focused on immigration and the economy throughout the campaign.

DeSantis has been one of my favorite east coast Republicans for a while. Florida did well to elect him.

Which Democratic candidates denounced Antifa? Some didn’t know who they were.

Which Democratic candidates denounced Antifa Some didnt know who they were

Antifa is a domestic terrorist organization that spreads violence and vitriol to otherwise peaceful events. When they have their own events, they get even more violent and spew even more vitriol. President Trump has denounced them unambiguously to the point of threatening to declare them an official terrorist organization. What do Democratic candidates for President think?

The folks at Turning Point USA are often too kind. They granted checkmarks to candidates who generally denounced hate, which is a cop-out response to a very specific question. But so be it. If they thought Jay Inslee, Joe Biden, Andrew Yang, and John Delaney’s generalized opposition to violence qualified as denouncing Antifa, it’s their video and their team’s effort that was put into tracking down the answers. Tulsi Gabbard gave the only non-generalized response saying, “I have denounced Antifa.”

Arguably the most concerning aspect of the video was seeing how many candidates needed to be told who Antifa even is. It’s not quite as egregious as Gary “What’s Aleppo” Johnson’s lack of awareness in the 2016 election, but anyone running for President of the United States should have acute awareness of the violence committed by Antifa, especially considering all of them love to condemn violence that comes from the right.

This is guaranteed: If President Trump had given any answer other than Gabbard’s in response to the same question about a white supremacist group, the press would have been relentless in their accusations of his implied support. Where’s the media calling out Julian Castro for replying to the question with “thanks”? Why aren’t journalists hounding Bernie Sanders for pretending he didn’t hear the question? Shouldn’t tough guy Cory Booker be held to account for his unwillingness to denounce the group when asked a direct question about them?

The truth is Democrats don’t really dislike Antifa. Some of them quietly support them. And that means mainstream media’s walking orders are to avoid discussing Antifa at all costs. They only make the news when they can be portrayed as a counter-movement against white supremacist groups.

By progressive standards, nearly all of the 2020 candidates support domestic terrorist group Antifa with their unwillingness to directly denounce them. Thanks to Lauryn Gray and TPUSA for bringing this information to light.

Keep attacking gun control. The President is listening.

Keep attacking gun control The President is listening

We may never know what the President heard. Perhaps it was internal polling that showed his base has no appetite for gun control. Maybe he read an article (we’ve posted about two dozen on gun control in the last month) or watched a video detailing how the bipartisan measures being proposed are both unconstitutional and ineffective. It could have been an adviser or someone close to him not named Ivanka who said gun control is a bad idea.

Whatever prompted the change of heart, the President indicated over the weekend that he has soured on universal background checks and now Democrats are up in arms attacking his apparent backtrack.

Democratic leaders assail Trump’s apparent reversal on background checks

Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are lamenting President Donald Trump’s apparent about-face on enhanced backgrounds for firearm sales, with Schumer calling the move “not only disappointing but also heartbreaking.”

Trump told reporters this weekend he will look “very strongly” at ideas from both Democrats and Republicans but said to remember that “we already have a lot of background checks.” Those remarks followed Trump’s Aug. 7 claim that “we can bring up background checks like we’ve never had before.”

In the Senate minority leader’s view, Trump’s remarks amounted to backing away from burgeoning bipartisan talks on reviving and amending the background checks bill by Sens. Joe Manchin and Pat Toomey.

Following a string of three mass shootings in less than two weeks, many Republican lawmakers were joining their Democratic counterparts in calling for one or more of three primary legislative actions: universal background checks (which already passed the House), incentives for states to pass red flag gun laws, and a new “assault weapons” ban. The last one was always very unlikely. Universal background checks were seemingly a foregone conclusion until the President’s remarks over the weekend.

That leaves us red flag gun laws. Hopefully, the President will realize they are ineffective, risky to both law enforcement and gun owners (like Gary J. Willis), and most importantly they’re clearly unconstitutional. This draconian measure shouldn’t just be rebuked by the White House. It should be repealed in the 17 states that already have them in place.

Conservatives need to keep up the pressure and let the White House, GOP, and President Trump know we must focus on real solutions to violent criminals that do not include taking away law abiding citizens’ 2nd Amendment rights.

Trump hits ‘nut job’ Anthony Scaramucci

Trump hits nut job Anthony Scaramucci

Anthony “Mooch” Scaramucci has been on a tear in recent days, coming out as a firm anti-Trump commentator on progressive news channels and spreading whatever vitriol he can must against his former boss. In case you don’t remember him, he was White House Director of Communications for 11 days before being fired.

His vocal tirades have been embraced by progressive media as well as Never Trumpers since he’s technically a former White House insider. But he’s the flavor of the week as his rhetoric will soon grow tiresome even to his fellow Trump haters. He’s abrasive and not the most likable guy, so they’ll discard him faster than they did Omarosa Manigault.

President Trump hasn’t taken kindly to the man who he offered a real opportunity to for a brief period before realizing he wasn’t the best fit for the job or as a member of the administration.

Somewhere in Scaramucci’s twisted mind, he believes all the sudden press he’s getting is going to benefit him. He thinks he’s a hero, as narcissists often do. But as this wears on, he’s going to find his revitalized fame is temporary.
