Former President Donald Trump has launched a relentless series of attacks intended to end Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ fledgling White House run with death by a thousand cuts. Mr. Trump’s social media feed is jam-packed with DeSantis digs and links to stories and polls suggesting the Florida governor’s support is fading. “The storm is coming, said Aubrey Jewett, assistant director of the University of Central Florida’s School of Politics. “As long as Trump views DeSantis as his most serious competitor for the nomination, the attacks are going to keep coming.” Asked about the constant stream of attacks, Bryan Griffin, a spokesman for Mr. DeSantis’ political operation, said

I've already seen an ad RE this on television. As much as I love Gov. DeSantis, politics is messy business. And as President Trump showed in 2016, if you can't fight with the big dogs, stay on the porch!!

Just my opinion---but if Trump wants to win in the general election he needs to stop with the attacks and lay out a well thought out plan to bring our country back from the brink.

Who Will Blink First? McCarthy Says No
Debt Ceiling Negotiations Until Biden
Returns from Japan Summit

As the nation barrels toward defaulting on our debt, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy said Saturday that negotiations are on pause until President Joe Biden returns Sunday from the Group of Seven summit in Japan. Both sides are accusing the other of being intractable in negotiations over raising the debt ceiling, which Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen says we could hit as soon as June 1, causing “economic chaos.” Said McCarthy about the latest developments (or lack thereof): Unfortunately, the White House moved backwards. I don’t think we’re going to be able to move forward until the president can get back in the country.
Brutal New AP-NORC Polling Destroys Democrat
Narrative on the Debt Ceiling Fight

Are Republicans actually about to win a political messaging battle? It’d certainly be shocking given the party’s track record, but that’s the story of a new Associated Press poll that is just brutal for the Democrat narrative on the debt ceiling fight. According to the results of the AP-NORC poll, a whopping 63 percent of Americans want a debt ceiling deal that includes measures to decrease the federal deficit. That compares to just 19 percent who want a debt ceiling increase to be passed without any conditions. Twenty-one percent of adults are following the debate over increasing the national debt limit closely and another 38% are following it somewhat closely.

Democrats continue to vent over how they have been forced to negotiate with Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) on a potential debt ceiling deal after months of saying they would not consider discussing such a compromise. Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) said that he regrets that Democrats did not raise the debt ceiling during the lame-duck session in 2022 before Republicans formally took back the House in January. “If I could do one thing different. And I was saying it at the time … ‘Hey, we got the votes,'” Kaine remarked, saying he believes that even the purportedly fiscal hawk Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) would have backed a debt ceiling hike.

Martin Amis, the influential author of era-defining novels including Money and London Fields, and the memoir Experience, has died at the age of 73 at his home at Lake Worth in Florida . His wife Isabel Fonseca said that the cause was cancer of the oesophagus. Amis was among the celebrated group of novelists including Salman Rushdie, Ian McEwan and Julian Barnes, whose works defined the British literary scene in the 1980s. His 1984 novel Money was named by Robert McCrum in the Guardian as among the 100 best novels written in English. Money, wrote McCrum, was a “a zeitgeist book that remains one of the dominant novels of the 1980s”.

Before we dig into the main course, a few words about polling in general. First, it’s been my experience that many—if not most—casual poll watchers tend to pay selective attention to polls, not unlike Fox News or CNN viewers who watch various on-air personalities to be told what they want to hear. Second, we’ve seen candidates laud the results of a particular poll when its results favor them, then turn around and call the exact same polls “fake” when they don’t like the poll’s latest results. Third, while pre-primary polls conducted among likely voters of a single party might be lauded by various candidates and their followers, polls conducted among

Debt ceiling talks resumed Friday night on Capitol Hill, after multiple sources told CNN that earlier discussions between House Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s office and the White House had hit a snag, triggering a pause. McCarthy told Fox Business Friday evening that they would “be back in the room tonight,” adding that he remained “very frustrated” with the White House’s position. A source familiar with the negotiations separately told CNN Friday evening that negotiators would convene shortly. Negotiators had met briefly in the Capitol earlier Friday before breaking up, dashing hopes that there could be a deal in principle by the weekend. GOP Rep.

Cleveland Browns legend Jim Brown has died at the age of 87. Brown is one of the greatest running backs of all time, having won three MVPs (including in his rookie season in 1957) and being named to nine All-Pro teams, eight of which he was a First-teamer. Brown led the NFL in rushing yards eight times and rushing touchdowns on five occasions - he won the NFL Championship in 1964. His 106 rushing touchdowns are the sixth-most all-time, and his 12,312 rushing yards rank the 11th most in NFL history. He was enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1971.

Feeling pret-tee smug right now about my home state, yes sirree, Bob. And not for the first time, either. But in the middle of some pretty wretched economic numbers and an absolutely abysmal administration doing it’s best to sink the country in a morass of fiscal distress and racial division, all the while doing their damnedest to deride and destroy everything Americans once held dear, Florida is like an oasis of calm, sanity, courage, and FREEDOM. It’s sure looking as if we Floridians aren’t the only ones who think so, either. Today, Governor Ron DeSantis announced that Florida has the lowest unemployment rate among the top 10 largest states

WASHINGTON — Jeff Bezos has his NASA moon ticket. The billionaire's space company, Blue Origin, won a key contract from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration on Friday to develop a crewed lunar lander for delivering astronauts to the moon's surface later this decade under the agency's Artemis program. The effort is effectively a more than $7 billion project. NASA's contract award is worth just over $3.4 billion, officials said Friday, and Blue Origin Vice President John Couluris said the company will contribute "well north" of the contract's value as well.

President Joe Biden told G7 leaders on Friday that Washington supports joint allied training programs for Ukrainian pilots on F-16 fighter jets, senior U.S. officials said, a significant endorsement as Kyiv seeks to boost its air power against Russia. Training on the U.S.-made jets will take place in Europe and will require months to complete, one of the officials said. U.S. officials have estimated the most expeditious time needed for training and delivery of F-16s at 18 months. "As the training takes place over the coming months, our coalition of countries participating in this effort will decide when to actually provide jets, how many we will provide,

Debt-ceiling talks were paused Friday afternoon after Republican negotiators walked out, blaming the White House for making unreasonable demands. “Until people are willing to have reasonable conversations about how you can actually move forward and do the right thing, then we’re not gonna sit here and talk to ourselves,” explained Representative Garret Graves (R., La.,), who was tapped to lead the negotiations. “We decided to press pause because it’s just not productive,” Graves said, adding he doesn’t know if talks will resume over the weekend. Late last month, House Republicans narrowly passed a bill to raise the nation’s $31.4 trillion debt ceiling by an additional $1.5 trillion. The Limit, Save, Grow Act

Reverend Al Sharpton has used the funeral of subway chokehold victim Jordan Neely to condemn the ex-marine who fatally restrained the homeless schizophrenic. Hundreds gathered at the Mount Neboh Baptist Church in Harlem with loved ones visibly devastated as they carried Neely into the place of worship in an ivory and gold casket ahead of the service. Sharpton delivered a fiery eulogy as mourners clapped and chanted: 'No Justice, no peace.' The civil rights activist told the congregation: 'When they choked Jordan they put their arms around all of us. All of us have a right to live.'

A printer error in Nassau County, New York turned every registered voter in the county Democrat. The printer reportedly botched over 976,000 voter registration cards and labeled every voter in the county Democrat. Republicans make up over 60% of registered voters in Nassau County which left many Conservatives in the county feeling absolutely blindsided by the error. Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman told NBC 4 News “We’re already starting to get phone calls from people, saying ‘I’m a registered Republican, I’m a registered Conservative – how come I’m being identified as a Democrat? Who changed my registration?’ And they’re quite upset about it.”
