DeSantis Puts Trump on Blast for Refusing
to Sign RNC Pledge

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 8/12/2023 12:25:50 AM

GOP presidential candidate Ron DeSantis torched Donald Trump over the former president’s refusal to sign the Republican National Committee’s pledge of supporting the eventual party nominee in 2024. DeSantis spoke to reporters in Iowa, where he slammed Trump for refusing to sign the RNC pledge. The Florida governor noted that he had signed the pledge — being one of the first to do so — and jammed Trump for suggesting he may not support the eventual nominee. “I mean, you can’t, on the one hand, say that the country’s going in such a bad direction, which we all believe, and then, on the other hand, say you’re just going to take your

None of the others will support Trump if/when he gets the nomination. Why should he do what they will NOT do?

Ronnnn!, - let's not be trite about this whole debate thing, you once were and now you're not, so just accept that you will not be in the race in November, 2024 because you don't have what our President has, a faithful populace who love him because he's gained that love through, what's the campaign slogan: "Promises Made, Promises Kept"?, plus ...... he's already got romney mcdaniel all figured out and that incenses the "insiders" of the party to unbelievable levels of vitriol and you sound just like them so, stop the hootin' and hollerin' and get to work governing Florida

Why does nobody remind the RNC that when all the 15 or 16 Republicans were asked this juvenile question back in the 2016 debates, a good number of them lied. They said yes and then never supported Trump at all when he won!

I find this so entertaining. Trump honestly says he won’t sign this “pledge,” (a “pledge,” in American politics c. now— right) …because he frankly cannot say that among the GOP field of candidates he’s 100% sure of them all— and this DeSantis guy for all his solid credentials and great state governance blasts Trump for it. Evidently the governor is not seeing that an average American would consider Trump’s stance basic common sense. This is a guy so saturated with the unreal essence of politics that he fails to see that in the practical world no one would take a blind pledge like that. Only in the swamp, for purely political purposes, would anyone think it’s a good move. Guy just doesn’t get it. Makes Trump—to me, for all his flaws— more rather than less appealing; and his “crimes,” which Mueller and $40-million and two years failed to articulate— even more inconsequential. The Obama administration and the Clintons’ before it, and the years following Obama— with Pelosi, and Schumer, and Swalwell, and Schiff— have revealed the utterly bottomless corruption of the American political establishment, at least on the federal level, and nothing that’s been reported on Trump’s bad conduct even comes close. And fantastic as it sounds, every day reveals more of the Obama-Biden administrations’ perfidy. DeSantis is the establishment.

Ronnie is excitedly raising his hand and shouting, Look at me, look at me, I can’t wait to sign to your pledge, Ronna. I really, really like doing whatever you elites suggest. Clearly the GOPe believe that the Uniparty will take Trump out by lawfare and they want him to then endorse the winner of the Republican primary. They know they cannot win without Trump’s base and by this asinine pledge will get it. No way that is going to happen. We have been manipulated, lied to and abandoned by these Rinos and frankly, we are fed up. When it could have mattered they scattered after the 2020 fraudulent election and been AWOL ever since. They refused to support anyone who dared to speak the truth about the election. So I am done with these lowlifes. If they believe that Trump’s base is that stupid, they are fooling themselves. We know who has our back and it is not Ronna McDanial and the rest of the traitorous elites. Forced participation in this pledge is juvenile and wreaks of desperation. Sorry, Ronna you have been and continue to be a disaster. You have done nothing to secure the vote because you are an agent of the Uniparty/Deep State.

Even if he doesn't sign I'm sure he will support whoever goes up against whatever the DNC candidate is, if they somehow jail or keep Trump out some way. One exception would be if Chris Christy was against RFK Jr.

Trump is so far ahead in this race that he could break both legs and still breeze over the finish line. He knows that if he doesn't win it will be because of cheating or other criminal activity by dems, Rinos or both. You don't acknowledge that kind of competition.

I thought DeSantis was smarter than his actions have proven him to be. Unless he somehow pulls a hail Mary, he is toast. If he had supported Trump, while taking care of Florida and sat out of this election, he would have had Trump supporters willing to back him in 2028. I guess self importance is the Achilles' Heel of politicians.

The country is in a bad state so why support a candidate who cannot and will not improve it. We really have not seen the Democrat candidate yet, They keep shoving Biden but we all know he will not be the candidate He is already a babbling fool and in another year he will a total vegetable. The democrats have to unload him sooner or later, we don't really know who the Democrats candidate will be, but it's pretty certain it will be a "woke".I cannot even think of one democrat I could support, but it's going to be tough for me to support any Republican that is running other than Trump. DeSantis has defecated in his mess kit for me.

From American Thinker: Trump argued that his declination, which would mean no debate, was "not a question of guts," but of "intelligence," and he's absolutely right. Trump is an author, and his books include numerous references to famous works of Western literature, which means he's well versed in classic authors. He's likely heard the quote often attributed to George Bernard Shaw about tussling with swine: "Never wrestle with a pig. You both get dirty, and the pig likes it." A double-entendre for the ages! McDaniel, in particular, is cozy in the sty and at the trough of establishment politics. But I'd also argue Trump's move is a matter of principle, and seemingly, so does he. From a Florida outlet: 'Why would I sign it?' Trump said in an interview on the conservative cable network Newsmax. 'I can name three or four people that I wouldn't support for president. So right there, there's a problem.’

What has happened to the RNC? Have they always been this bad, the opposite of the people's choice? Is Ronna McDaniel just a symptom of today's Swamp or has the curtains been pulled back and we are seeing the rottenness that has always been in the National Republican Committee and the Republican Party? I was in College during the Reagan years, so did I miss something about the Republican party? Did President Reagan fight the RNC like President Trump is having to do? Has the party always been this bad? I really want to know.

The Georgia indictment relates to Donald Trump’s (and 18 other defendants’) post-election efforts to reverse the apparent result of the 2020 election, in Georgia and elsewhere. That Trump made such attempts is not disputed. The question is, what did he do that was illegal? The indictment alleges a vast conspiracy, supported by 161 “overt acts,” that ultimately comprises Count I, a violation of Georgia’s RICO statute. The problem is that, with two exceptions, the “overt acts” are all legal. You can’t aggregate a series of legal acts and make them a crime by calling them a conspiracy.

But it’s also a fair description of what’s happening in Tennessee, as the state Legislature is being called to a special session even as local and federal officials withhold information that might be critical to its decision-making. Gov. Bill Lee ordered the special session to begin Aug. 21 in response to a March 27 mass shooting in which three adults and three children at the Covenant School, a Christian school in Nashville’s Green Hills neighborhood, were killed.

The former legal counsel for Al Gore who challenged – and lost – the presidential election results in 2000 says Gore's team did "the same thing" as what a Georgia prosecutor is claiming Trump committed as a crime. Donald Trump is facing a fourth indictment, this time from Fulton County, Georgia district attorney Fani Willis, involving allegations that Trump sought to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in Georgia. Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz, speaking to Fox News Digital, criticized the pending indictment, calling Trump’s actions "very similar" to that of Al Gore’s legal strategy in the Bush v. Gore case that decided the 2000 presidential election.

It’s been a week since wildfires on Maui ravaged the island and sent residents streaming into the ocean to avoid the flames. So far, Joe Biden has “no comment” about the casualties and, presumably, he has nothing to say about the massive relief efforts that are surely underway. But are they underway? According to the Wall Street Journal, “State and federal aid is trickling into the region in the wake of the deadliest U.S. wildfire event in over 100 years.” So after a full week, aid is just “trickling in” from FEMA to deal with the destruction of most of the Western part of Maui?

The 14-page petition, filed in Shelby County, Tennessee, probate court, alleges that Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy, who took Oher into their home as a high school student, never adopted him.
