DeSantis Charms GOP by Condemning ‘Leaks’ and ‘Palace Intrigue’, by Philip Wegmann

Imagine a politician saying no to a journalist’s interview request, and doing it with a one word answer. From Philip Wegmann at realclearwire.com:

On its face, there wasn’t anything unusual about the email that landed last week in the press office of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

“Background interview request from the Washington Post,” read the subject line that summarized the industry-standard process whereby information is shared with reporters under pre-negotiated terms, usually anonymity. When sanctioned by a politician or their team, it is called “going on background” to shape and broaden a story with additional facts and contexts but without direct attribution. When not sanctioned, well, then that is just called leaking.

Either way, Jeremy Redfern wasn’t interested. The DeSantis spokesman wrote back one word: “No.”

A screenshot of the exchange went viral with the consensus in more conservative corners of Twitter being that a liberal rag, albeit the beltway paper of record, had just been owned. The score in their minds? DeSantis: 1, WaPo: 0.

The little episode does underscore a larger, still emerging theme of the expected DeSantis presidential campaign. It isn’t just that the team that didn’t leak in Florida wouldn’t leak in the White House. The implication is that DeSantis would not obsess over what is written about him in news outlets most of his constituents don’t read, because such an obsession is counterproductive to conservative goals. In this way, DeSantis may prove to be the anti-chaos candidate.

Trump’s call for building ‘Freedom Cities’ plays right into globalists’ plan for Fourth Industrial Revolution control grid, by Leo Hohmann

What’s the difference between Trump’s “Freedom Cities” and the globalists’ “Smart Cities”? Not much. From Leo Hohmann at leohohmann.com:

  • Trump pledges to build new generation of cities on federal lands, where everyone is prosperous, safe and secure with lots of police and flying cars
  • Everyone who is awake knows that all modern cities are being developed or redeveloped as ‘smart cities’
  • And what is a ‘smart city’? Maybe Trump doesn’t know, or is he just playing us?
  • Trump’s history of talking tough against globalists but then kow-towing to their demands, like he did with the vax, should give us pause.

For several years now, myself and others with an eye toward the future have been warning people to get out of the cities or risk becoming a ward of the burgeoning technocratic “beast” system.

Through their “smart city” technology and various engineered emergencies, the globalists hope to lure us into stack and pack housing where they can more easily control us with 24/7 surveillance and near total dependence on the globalist infrastructure for our jobs, transportation, food, water, healthcare, entertainment, etc. Aldous Huxley, author of the 1931 novel, A Brave New World, foresaw the end result of technocratic advances mixed with creeping centralization even back then.

Trump and DeSantis Need to Admit C19 Shots are Bioweapons, by Dr. Joseph Sansone

How they address the Covid vaccine injury issue could be pivotal if, as expected, Trump and DeSantis square off in the 2024 Republican primaries. From Dr. Joseph Sansone at josephsansone.substack.com:

The new dog and pony show developing within the GOP is a race for president, between President Trump, and Governor DeSantis. Briefly, let’s consider this race. President Trump was cheated out of his reelection victory and is the clear front runner. As presidents go, Trump did well his first three years, the last year, was not so well, as he bought into the C19 con. (I am comparing him to previous presidents not to my ideal of a president dismantling the size of government, etc.) Fake president Biden’s administration certainly boosts Trump’s presidency. We went from energy independence, to no more gas stoves, fairly quickly.

Trump did not engage in any lockdowns, but cleared the way for states to do so. Suddenly, states’ rights were perverted to mean states can become tyrannies. Trump maintained plausible deniability, but the take down of America ensued. How much Trump knew or did not know is up for conjecture. He could have just trusted his advisors and thought he was saving lives. Trump should never have declared an emergency. A better understanding of the philosophical basis for our republic would have prevented any such action. Still, it was President Trump’s rejection of WEF plans for global technocracy that initiated a quickening of the take down of the United States and the C19 biological weapon’s distribution. On the surface, it certainly appears that Trump is not a globalist.

Trump’s Tax Returns Show Evil of the Income Tax, by Ron Paul

The evils of the income tax—robbing people of the fruits of their honest labor—are understood and mostly ignored. From Ron Paul at ronpaulinstitue.org:

The final act of the Democrat majority on the House Ways and Means Committee was to make public several years of Donald Trump’s tax returns, which the Committee obtained after a prolonged legal battle. The tax returns confirmed that, despite being one of the richest people in America, Donald Trump paid very little in federal income tax. In fact, in at least one year he paid under a thousand dollars.

Trump’s success in minimizing his tax liability without ever being audited is surprising only to those who think IRS audits are mainly used to catch rich “tax cheats.” According to data released by the Syracuse University Transactional Records Clearinghouse, in 2022 lower-income taxpayers were five and half times more likely than millionaires and billionaires to be audited! This is because low-income taxpayers cannot afford to hire top-notch tax attorneys and accountants to help fight the IRS, so they are more likely to give in to the agency’s demands.

Despite claims of the Biden Administration and its Congressional allies, the $80 million in additional funds provided to the agency as a part of the misnamed “Inflation Reduction Act” will likely increase the tax agency’s targeting of low- and middle-income Americans.

A Christmas Parable, by James Howard Kunstler

Did Hillary Clinton’s loss in 2016 ignite the paroxysms that plague the nation to this day? From James Howard Kunstler at kunstler.com:

“The powerful are panicking, and so they should. Their secrets are leaking.” —Miranda Devine, The New York Post

As the Yule log burns down, and the trivialities of the season melt into air, the nation might ask itself how the authorities who run things went to war against the citizens of this land. I will tell you, and, it will probably make you angry: It started when the women of the professional and managerial class watched their avatar, Hillary Clinton, lose the 2016 election against a man who seemed the quintessence of everything they hated about Daddydom.

     Donald Trump, flawed to perfection, wrecked the chance of the amalgamated successful women of America to run the national household. Out came the pussy-hats, the shrieking Wiccans, and the celebrities threatening to “blow up the White House.” Out came a savage animus against men generally, and a campaign to feminize them in retaliation — and then punish them for objecting to it. Up rose a social movement, Wokery, that had the earmarks of a histrionic religious mania, with Satanic overtones. Up rose the demons, the Antifa louts, the BLM arsonists, the drag queens.

Twitter Trust And Safety Team Found Trump Tweets Did Not Violate Policy: THE TWITTER FILES, by Bari Weiss

Twitter File # 5, by Bari Weiss, has been released. From Bari Weiss at twitter.com via zerohedge.com:

After an unexplained delay, journalist Bari Weiss has dropped the third installment of THE TWITTER FILES: The Removal of Donald Trump. Parts 1 and 2 can be found here and here.

The new drop reveals that Twitter employees did not believe former President Trump had violated Twitter’s policies.

“I think we’d have a hard time saying this is incitement,” wrote one staffer in an internal message, adding: “It’s pretty clear he’s saying the ‘American Patriots’ are the ones who voted for him and not the terrorists (we can call them that, right?)…”

Another staffer agreed, writing: “Don’t see the incitement angle here.

“I also am not seeing clear or coded incitement in the DJT tweet,” wrote Anika Navaroli, a Twitter policy official. “I’ll respond in the elections channel and say that our team has assessed and found no vios”—or violations—“for the DJT one.”

The Twitter Files, Part 3: The Removal of Donald Trump, by Matt Taibbi

It looks like a social media led coup. From Matt Taibbi at taibbi.substack.com:

The following is a reproduction of the “Twitter Files” thread from this past Friday evening. Because the entire thread with illustrations far exceeds Google’s email limit, I’m putting the document here, and mailing out a link to the material:

1.     THREAD: The Twitter Files, Part 3. THE REMOVAL OF DONALD TRUMP: Part One: October 2020-January 6th

2.     The world knows much of the story of what happened between riots at the Capitol on January 6th, and the removal of President Donald Trump from Twitter on January 8th.

3.     We’ll show you what hasn’t been revealed: the erosion of standards within the company in months leading up to J6, conscious decisions by high-ranking executives to violate their own policies, and more, all against the backdrop of ongoing, documented interaction with federal agencies.

4.       This first installment tonight will cover the period before the election through the first day of the crisis, January 6th. Tomorrow, on Saturday, @Shellenbergermd will tell a story in screenshots of the chaos inside Twitter on January 7th. On Sunday, @BariWeiss will guide you through the heretofore secret internal communications at the firm on the key January 8th.

Does Trump Really Want To Be President Again? By Victor Davis Hanson

And if Trump does want to be president again, is it an ego and power thing, or does he sincerely want to do some good? From Victor Davis Hanson at zerohedge.com:

Team Trump has sometimes compared former President Donald Trump’s current quest for a non-sequential second term to two-term President Grover Cleveland’s similar three election bids.

Cleveland remains our only elected president (1884) to have lost a reelection bid (1888) — in a disputed vote — only to be reelected four years later in 1892.

Yet Trump seems determined instead to follow a different, and bullheaded, Teddy Roosevelt model.

Roosevelt left the presidency in 1908, sat out four years, and then lost a reelection bid in 1912, split and alienated the Republican Party, and ensured the election of the progressive Woodrow Wilson.

President Joe Biden’s first “corrective” two years have been an utter disaster.

Biden birthed hyperinflation. He destroyed a secure border and Trump’s energy self-sufficiency. Crime is now out of control. The United States was humiliated abroad in Afghanistan. Rising interest rates will soon spark a recession.

After promising to unite the country, Biden smeared half the voting population as “un-American” and “semi-fascist.”

In addition, almost all of Trump’s prior complaints, predictions, and assertions that the media dismissed as conspiratorial, or crackpot have proven eerily prescient.

Hunter Biden’s laptop was all too authentic.

The FBI was compromised and acted as an agent of the Democratic Party. Anthony Fauci proved a partisan.

The Trumpification of Elon Musk, by J. Peder Zane

If you have a substantial forum and you challenge the narrative and those behind it, you can look forward to nonstop mudslinging and vitriol. Ask Trump. Ask Musk. From J. Peder Zane at realclearpolitics.com:


The relentless attacks on Elon Musk since he purchased Twitter should be familiar to most Americans. It’s exactly what Democrats and their media and corporate allies did to demonize Donald Trump.

The McCarthyite formula is simple: Claim you are defending high-minded principles (Democracy! The rule of law! Civil discourse!) to justify efforts to delegitimize someone you’ve identified as a political opponent.

Democrats denied Trump’s presidency from day one; Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden themselves declared for years that he had stolen the 2016 election. In the name of election integrity, Democrats turned a bogus conspiracy theory cooked up by Clinton’s campaign about Russian collusion into years of official investigations that undermined and tainted Trump. When Special Counsel Robert Mueller proved that a lie, Democrats immediately seized on a few innocuous sentences in a Trump phone call with a foreign leader to launch just the third presidential impeachment in U.S. history.

Evil or Stupid? By Baron Bodissey

Republicans talk a good game, but that’s all it is—talk. Cut through the bullshit and they just want their place at the trough. From Baron Bodissey at gatesofvienna.net:

h/t WRSA

Last week, in one of our Skype groups, a non-American participant said:

I’ve seen this quote: “The US has two parties: the Evil Party and the Stupid Party.” Is it any wonder the stupid party is losing a** over teacup over and over again?

I replied:

I understand the sentiment, but it’s worse than that. The Republicans are also evil, but pretend to be stupid. They don’t need to win elections to reach their goals; they just need the system that rewards and enriches them to remain in place and stable. They get just as rich when they’re the opposition.

They have to pretend that they hold conservative principles and want to win elections, but it’s all a charade. Any Republican who intends to move up in the hierarchy has to forget all that. In the end, it’s about money and power and perks and getting laid (whether hookers, rent boys, or little kids).

All the rest of it is pretense.

It’s very demoralizing to realize what’s going on. But once you start seeing this stuff, you can’t go back to not seeing it.

It took me a long time to reach this cynical position. I wanted to believe that the Republican Party presented a viable opposition, and for many years I resisted the nagging sense that the whole thing was a charade. Even after I came to loathe Republicans, I still clung to the forlorn hope that the party could somehow overcome its deficiencies and mount a real challenge to Democrat hegemony.
