Biden’s Bargain Basement Campaign 2.0: “The reality is that he doesn’t need to do *anything* but to nudge for a Trump nomination”

Biden’s Bargain Basement Campaign 2.0: “The reality is that he doesn’t need to do *anything* but to nudge for a Trump nomination”

Biden’s “hidden” campaign strategy is a definite risk without the cover of the covid measures that helped him hide in 2020.

Joe “I am the Democratic Party” Biden’s 2020 campaign was less than inspiring. We all remember the four car “rallies” and the bizarre “social distance” circles for all nine attendees at in-person rallies. Of course that was 2020, he had the covid plandemic as an excuse to do little in terms of traditional campaigning.

Now that he appears even more infirm and in further mental decline, not to mention facing a host of very serious scandals related to the Biden family influence peddling and illegal drugs found in the White House, Biden is reportedly going to run another “basement” campaign for 2024, and he’s looking to save a buck by outsourcing the campaign’s work to the DNC, state parties, and other Democrat-affiliated organizations across the country.

The Washington Post piece included in the above tweet is a study in propaganda.

President Biden’s campaign manager, Julie Chavez Rodriguez, has spent her first months on the job planning a sweeping national reelection effort by squatting in a borrowed office overlooking an Amtrak commuter line on Capitol Hill.

With just three other paid staffers, her entire operation cost $1.4 million from April through June — about an eighth of what President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign spent in the same period in 2011, when it operated out of an imposing office suite in Chicago nearly the size of a football field.

Biden aides say that skeletal quality is not a weakness but the plan.

. . . . It’s a stark break from the last Democratic presidential reelection campaign. Even when fully built, Biden’s operation will look little like Obama’s sprawling Chicago-based corporation, which included teams of software coders and data scientists, a high council of senior advisers, and hundreds of people who ran field organizing in battleground states.

Instead, Biden is essentially outsourcing much of his campaign to the DNC and party organizations in the 50 states and D.C. With outside groups, Biden insiders believe the total effort could spend as much as $2 billion by November 2024.

Politico’s write-up is entitled “Joe Biden is redefining presidential campaign frugality.”

Biden’s campaign spent a total of $1.1 million in the second quarter of this year, a remarkably small amount that would put him behind several Democratic Senate candidates in terms of expenditures.

Biden had four people on his payroll during that time: Campaign manager Julie Chávez Rodríguez, principal deputy campaign manager Quentin Fulks, spokesperson Kevin Munoz, and general counsel Maury Riggan. His campaign spent less than $1,500 on travel, accommodations and airfare. On rent, he spent nothing. He has not opened a campaign headquarters yet and much of his staff has been working out of the Democratic National Committee’s building.

. . . . During a private call with donors on Friday about this quarter’s fundraising haul, Chávez Rodríguez, Biden’s campaign manager, reiterated the team’s view that their opponents are wasting cash while they stow theirs away. She said that “MAGA Republicans” trying to oust Biden are “burning through their resources in an extremely divisive primary.”

. . . . “Part of our victory strategy is to run a one-team operation. Staff, resources, and financing from across the DNC and Biden-Harris 2024 are and will be dedicated to the reelection effort, from finance to communications to outreach and more,” said Munoz.

“From a reporting perspective, it may look and feel different than prior campaigns, but by all our metrics of success this is a proven and winning model — already helping deliver election wins for Democrats in places from Wisconsin to Jacksonville.”

Team Biden would do well to keep him as hidden as possible because he is incapable of interacting with voters or even of making a coherent speech. But his “hidden” bargain basement campaign strategy is a definite risk without the cover of the covid measures that helped him hide in 2020.

    So you’re admitting that Trump is a guaranteed loser?

      mailman in reply to GravityOpera. | July 24, 2023 at 5:21 am

      It doesnt matter who runs against Biden. The Democrat propaganda machine will grind them down with relentless 24/7 balls to the wall negative coverage (aimed at those who have outsourced their thinking, like yourself, to others to think for them). The Democrat propaganda machine will just cover for Biden like they did last time.

        Bush, a weak candidate, won twice and Trump once despite the coordinated opposition. The election is winnable but we need the right candidate and it is most definitely not Trump who should be banished from the party for handing the Senate to the Dems by his antics in late 2020 and early 2021 that screwed us in GA.

        2 years of destructive policies enables by a narcissist who couldn’t look past his own selfish interests to the interests of the country.

          Concise in reply to Massinsanity. | July 24, 2023 at 11:07 am

          This type of delusional thinking is exactly what the Republican party promotes, and I’m not even sure they really believe it. US elections changed in 2020 and most of those changes are still in place. It’s a new world of unverified mail-in ballots, harvesters, and drop boxes. To pretend otherwise guarantees a democrat win and republican loss, regardless of the candidates.

          bhwms in reply to Massinsanity. | July 24, 2023 at 1:42 pm

          Bush was a weak candidate, but in 2000 he ran against a certifiable nutcase and in 2004 he had the 9/11 wind at his back, and Kerry was (is) a buffoon.

          Biden is a dementia patient, but their strategy has shifted to make it possible. If the Biden of today ran against Bush in 2000 he would lose in a landslide, because people then didn’t have their minds poisoned by any number of avenues, and gaslighted by their own government. At that time, politicians like Shiela Jackson Lee were seen as nutcases. Now she has much more company – a majority of the Democrat party & media figures. The Republicans had a movement leader, Gingrich, that led them through a string of successes in the 90’s, but tossed aside Gingrich & were buckling under the DC pressure cooker by 2000.

          Concise in reply to Massinsanity. | July 25, 2023 at 9:33 am

          Elections today are not conducted like elections in 2000. Why this fact is so difficult to understand is beyond me.

          Azathoth in reply to Massinsanity. | July 25, 2023 at 12:01 pm

          Bush won because he fought the steal. He exposed the fakery enough that it simply could not stand.

          He got his second term because the left had not come up with a new strategy yet.

          They had one in 2016, having had 8 years to work with.

          Trump was not supposed to win–he was supposed to be another McCain or Romney–a candidate chosen by the media to go down in flames to the Democrat savior.

          But they miscalculated. Places they thought were safe weren’t.

          And Trump struck a nerve.

          They retested in 2018, and went to more open cheating in 2019 and STILL needed some wholesale slaughter to make sure that they could use their tactic on a nationwide scale.

          And STILL almost lost.

          Because the electorate is moving away from them.

          So the new strategy is ‘shatter the opposition’ combined with the standard cheating.

          Since the right is cooperating fully, it’s likely that, unless we fight the open cheating, we’re going to get screwed again.

          And there’s only one person committed to fighting the open cheating.

        GravityOpera in reply to mailman. | July 24, 2023 at 5:27 pm

        Just two days ago gonzotx said that Trump is the only one who could win, but is now saying he can’t. That’s what I was referring to.

        The Democrats have been running that same playbook for decades. They will try it with everyone, but it’s success is dependent on the candidate. It works extremely well against someone who’s personal life is a dumpster fire of adultery and divorce and bankruptcies. It would be far less successful against someone of good personal character and a record of successful public duty.

        I am so glad to hear that TrumpBux, nominating Canterbury for the ATF, and so much more evil that no conservative could support was merely figments of the MSMs imagination.

      MarkS in reply to GravityOpera. | July 24, 2023 at 7:32 am

      when the courts allow the Dems to cheat with impunity, yes, and that’s why the Dems want Trump as the nominee

        GravityOpera in reply to MarkS. | July 24, 2023 at 8:12 pm

        If the Dems can cheat with impunity then why do they care who the nominee is? The two reasons I can see are that they still can’t cheat enough to beat a better candidate or they believe that Trump being the nominee will damage and discredit the GOP ensuring that they can continue.

          Azathoth in reply to GravityOpera. | July 25, 2023 at 12:17 pm

          The Dems DON’T want Trump to be the nominee.

          That’s why they have all these fake indictments.

          It’s also why they keep trotting out these articles that say that Republicans should go ahead and nominate Trump because Biden can beat him, he beat Trump before.

          AND the articles that tell everyone that Trump is unelectable

          And, of course, the nevertrumpers bleat their masters words in idiot repetition, like Comrade Napoleon’s sheep–


          And after the convention, when it’s all settled, will we be gazing at them, back and forth, between nevertrumper and Democrat, unable to tell which is which?

        Are you naïve enough to believe that’s what I meant? The Democrats will TRY which is why it is so important to not run sleazeballs like Trump.

        The Democrats have been running that same playbook for decades. They will try it with everyone, but it’s success is dependent on the candidate. It works extremely well against someone who’s personal life is a dumpster fire of adultery and divorce and bankruptcies.

      More that that, Gonzo wants to lose. It will validate her victimhood.

    Lucifer Morningstar in reply to gonzotx. | July 24, 2023 at 8:15 am

    So your just telling us all not to bother to vote at all because the democrat party will just cheat their way into the White House regardless. So why bother to go out and vote. Might just as well stay home on election day, have a couple of beers, and be done with it. Because there’s no real reason to cast a ballot. It’s all just pointless.

    If you truly believe that the democrats will cheat their way into the White House then Biden and the democrat party have already have won the election. It’s called a self-fulfilling prophecy for a reason. And people like you continually harping on it aren’t helping. Not helping at all.

      No just because they are going to cheat is no reason not to vote.

        Lucifer Morningstar in reply to Martin. | July 24, 2023 at 8:59 am

        Baloney. If gonzotx is correct and the democrats are just gonna cheat their way back into the White House and Congress then what’s the effing point of going out to vote. There is no point. Why? Because your vote, my vote, gonzotx’s vote simply won’t matter. We’ve allowed ourselves to be disenfranchised and our votes even if cast don’t matter. Nobody’s vote matters and longer. The political Uniparty will install whomever they please in the White House. That’s it. Game over. Time to go home and have a beer.

        If gonzotx and the 16 Thumbs Up people (at this time) and enough other people truly believe that to be true, then the democrats have already won the 2024 presidential election. It’s called a self-fulfilling prophecy for a reason.

          No, there are still pathways to winning. It means the Republicans need to adapt to the new reality. There should be voter integrity groups in every state that repeatedly sues to get the voter rolls cleaned up. We need to embrace early voting where it is the law and get our people to use it. Scott Pressler is right about this. Ballot boxes need to be run by election authorities and have continual video recording and human monitoring. Outside groups like Zuckerberg giving grants to implement their voting model should be outlawed. Republican State Legislatures need to be on standby to come into emergency session in case a judge changes election law. Etc Etc.

      Agreed. It is critical that everyone push family, friends, neighbors and any other communities with which one identifies and which appreciates any measure of freedom and individual responsibility to vote. Even with the apparent incongruities of the 2020 election counts, the margins were still razor thin. And now, some light (though not nearly enough) has been shined into many dark corners and under tables where those boxes of un-tabulated ballots are waiting for the eleventh hour. The GOP needs to make this about Biden. His policies. His economy. His censorship. His corruption.

      I guess he’s saying that simply engaging in pre-2020 activity is not going to win in the post-2020 world. Adopting the same tactics as the democrats is necessary. Then reform. Your comment is as misguided as your childish comic book alias.

        txvet2 in reply to Concise. | July 24, 2023 at 11:36 am

        Right. The best way to beat criminals is to be a better criminal. Makes a certain sort of twisted sense to an amoral mind, I guess.

          Concise in reply to txvet2. | July 24, 2023 at 5:13 pm

          Who said anything about criminality? I guess I have to be more specific because you don’t appear to be the sharpest tool in the shed. All the legal, but bad in terms of electoral security and integrity, tactics employed by the democrats.

        Lucifer Morningstar in reply to Concise. | July 24, 2023 at 1:42 pm

        No. What’s he saying is that there is no point whatsoever in bothering to vote because the democrat party will just cheat and install whomever the wish in the White House once again. So what’s the point. And with that kind of effing attitude you’ve all just handed the democrat party the win this coming 2024. It’s not called a self-fulfilling prophecy for nothing. You idiots expect to lose. So you’ll pull down the whole effing system in order to do just that. Lose. And then we’ll all be subject to your lunatic whining about how everything was effing STOLEN!!! from you and Trump will have further reason to whine about how the election was STOLEN!! for the next four effing years until the next election. Where you a-holes will just behave in the same manner. So either get your heads out of your backsides and actually WORK to win this election or just make your effing excuses why you lost now. It’s your choice. Either way.

        (And no, republcians wouldn’t dare adopt the same tactics as the democrats. The republicans don’t have the balls to do that. And the democrats know it which is why the laugh at republicans every time they open their mouths to whine about the latest democrat shenanigans. They know that’s about all that’ll happen. Nothing else. republicans will never hold democrats responsible for anything.)

        And screw you. At least I didn’t randomly chose a word out of the dictionary for my alias. So there. Nanner Nanner to you and your mother smells of elderberries.

      No, she’s telling you the same thing the other Trump supporters here are telling you: They think he’s going to get shellacked and they’re setting up their excuses and targets to blame for when he boots another election. They certainly won’t blame themselves.

        Lucifer Morningstar in reply to txvet2. | July 24, 2023 at 1:43 pm

        Nope. They won’t. And all us rational people will be subject to another four years of listening to the Only Trumper lunatics claim the election was stolen from them. A prospect I don’t relish at all. But there we go and here we are.

It would certainly be hilarious if the voters put Trump back in. There could be no election interference calls

    Paula in reply to scooterjay. | July 24, 2023 at 10:51 am

    Then Biden better look out because the precedent has been set that former presidents can be prosecuted up to and including 100 miles beyond the law.

    And there are far more skeletons in Biden’s closet than there were in Trump’s and some of them are so fresh that they still have the meat on.

    healthguyfsu in reply to scooterjay. | July 24, 2023 at 11:52 am

    I’d love to agree with you but I know it’s not going to happen.

    Yet, we have some grown up children on here that believe their trump tantrums will somehow win an election.

Dotard-marionette, Biden, won’t make it to the podium at the 2024 Dumb-o-crat National Convention. There’s no way in hell that the Party’s power brokers will risk him running a second time, not with the recentl revelations of his family’s corruption and his quickly deteriorating mental and physical health . The corrupt crime boss will announce that he’s not running for re-election, for health reasons. Expect greasy Newsolini to be the nominee. And, despite Newsolini’s horrible record and mismanagement of California, he can’t be taken lightly — not with the combined machinations of the FBI, mainstream media and Big Tech backing the Dumb-o-crats.

    nordic prince in reply to guyjones. | July 24, 2023 at 11:16 am

    Agreed. All the leaking in the press regarding Hunter’ shenanigans and Pedo Joe’s corruption are harbingers of the D machine’s plan to cut Biden loose and let him twist in the wind.

    The_Mew_Cat in reply to guyjones. | July 24, 2023 at 1:17 pm

    He has to make it to the convention to do a switcheroo without a contentious primary. He probably will unless he falls down the stairs or off a stage.

      guyjones in reply to The_Mew_Cat. | July 24, 2023 at 6:07 pm

      That’s a possibility, I suppose, but, that would create one hell of a kerfuffle among the Dumb-o-crats, if the dotard anoints Newsolini as his heir, bypassing harlot and woman “of color,” Kamala. It would totally disrupt the proceedings and create resentment among constituencies that the Dumbs need to be on board, 100%, without agitation or grievance as to the selection of the nominee.

Wishful thinking, but they should impeach Biden and make him play defense during the election, especially as there is a credible basis to proceed,

Even without impeachment, will Biden even survive? How much damage will he do to Democrats overall? Harris may have to do a Ford. Remember how that turned out.

Biden apparently is raising less money than his predecessor incumbents, and is more reliant on fat cats.

The desire to run against Trump may be biting the nose to spite by out of touch people. He is already ahead (18% with Independents) despite the persecution. People seem to have more common sense than Machiavellians realize, and are finally opposing the manipulation by the pretend betters in DC.

    Mauiobserver in reply to oldschooltwentysix. | July 23, 2023 at 9:43 pm

    That is one way to get the facts of the Biden crimes out to the average American.

    I have some Democrat and Independent friends and/or associates and they have never heard of any of the information that folks on this blog are well versed on.

    They get their news from the legacy media or worse The NY Times.

    All they know from their sources is that the GOP has no evidence of any misdeeds or is spreading Trump lies.

    If GOP holds hearings in a united front they could keep Biden and Democrat corruption front and center for weeks if not months and media would have to cover it though they will obviously be defending the indefensible.

      Many of them, who look down on others, have no idea that Biden was a cheat from his days as a student and has lied more about his accomplishments than almost anyone.

      Obama probably beats him because he wrote a fictional account of his life, which the smart people swallowed whole. He played the role his whole life as he became wealthy and took out his resentment on America.

        jagibbons in reply to oldschooltwentysix. | July 24, 2023 at 8:53 am

        Obama only selected Biden because he needed an established white guy on the ticket to garner the support of the still=racist old-school Democrats who wouldn’t vote for a bi-racial candidate or a Communist activist (both of which fit Obama).

          nordic prince in reply to jagibbons. | July 24, 2023 at 11:31 am

          An added bonus for Obama picking Pedo Joe was that it helped make Obama seem intelligent by comparison.

    healthguyfsu in reply to oldschooltwentysix. | July 24, 2023 at 11:53 am

    So polls are real when Trump is winning. Got it.

If the campaign was financed with public funds pedo joe would be passing the 8 trillion dollar mark.
Other people’s money is his hallmark.

“without the cover of the covid measures that helped him hide in 2020”

Lockdowns started in March 2020, we’re still eight months out from March 2024, plenty of time to engineer another “emergency”.

    CountMontyC in reply to jimincalif. | July 23, 2023 at 11:34 pm

    The problem with declaring an emergency in 2024 is that it will be occurring under the Biden Maladministration so they will have to take at least some of the blame for what occurs.

      mailman in reply to CountMontyC. | July 24, 2023 at 5:24 am

      Democrats can do what ever they want as no one will hold them accountable. The media itself proved why a free and fair media is critical to the survival of not just democracy BUT free and fair elections. Democrats could do what ever they wanted, like kicking out Republican election monitors, late night dumping of “prepared ballots with the right answers”, closing down counting operations across swing states and so on, with impunity because no one was holding a light up to them…mainly because the media IS Democrat.

        Subotai Bahadur in reply to mailman. | July 24, 2023 at 5:09 pm

        We have to do what is considered “normal” politics, no matter how much we know that it is rigged; unless the Left goes too far. The Left has no such restrictions. While it is very obvious to many of us that such is so, it will take more blatant election theft such as what you list to convince a critical mass that just as the Left is not bound by the laws, Constitution, or the Social Contract; neither is anyone else. And the country can try to create a new Social Contract. It cannot be avoided by pretending.

      They will either claim it with puppy-dog eyes, which the media will spin into “we need to give them some respect for telling us the truth, and give them slack to solve the problem” or they will delay, distract, and deflect, and the media will help them. Look at the Afghanistan withdrawal – Most likely it would be like that.

      jimincalif in reply to CountMontyC. | July 24, 2023 at 6:20 pm

      My guess is the “emergency”, whatever it is, will be ready to roll out at a moment’s notice, if and when the ruling junta deems it necessary. The “blame” narrative will be prepackaged and fed to MSNBCBSABCCNNFOX et. al. and they will run with it. They’ll blame Trump, Russia, or maybe even Israel, but it certainly wasn’t FJB’s doing. They will praise FJB’s response to the emergency and tell us how thankful we all are for having his steady hand guiding us through this unprecedented challenge.

    The_Mew_Cat in reply to jimincalif. | July 24, 2023 at 1:12 pm

    Developments in the Ukraine War may provide the pretext for a needed emergency.

It’s about the money.

If the Biden campaign does all the work, they keep all the money. It only directly finances their own employees. Outside support is a second order effect.

By sending money to state organizations, they now have more direct oversight and control over the state parties. It is a way to secure support in an intra-party fight over the 2024 nominee.

If this corrupt child molester is reelected, the Republic is done. The Roman Empire had a good run too.

One big difference between 2020 and 2024 is that the voters will be able to compare the records of Biden and Trump and if Biden isn’t out there defending his own record that will be held against him. Furthermore at the debates Trump will have many more routes of attack (I eagerly await Trump asking Biden how many grandchildren he has). Biden’s handlers can try and repeat the 2020 strategy but it carries huge risks.

      Schedule the “debate.” Have the debate whether the opposition shows, or not.

    That means nothing Count. Voters COULD have done that in the last election but they didnt. Probably because the majority of Democrat voters were dead? 😉

      amwick in reply to mailman. | July 24, 2023 at 6:25 am

      This is not a joke.. I knew one family personally, their dead father registered D and then voted. With their permission I filed some sort of complaint,, crickets.. So people who claim that never happened are just wrong. and if it happened to my friend, multiply that times a thousand.

        CommoChief in reply to amwick. | July 24, 2023 at 8:07 am

        This is where those ballot dumps come from; ‘bad’ voter registration lists with tens of thousands of deceased, moved out of State, moved within the State but to new County, invalid physical address of residence.

        It’s a huge issue and one where individual voters can make a difference. Get the property tax roll and the voter roll then compare addresses. Does a one bedroom apartment have a dozen ‘voters’ listing it as their physical address? Same for a vacant lot or PO box? File a challenge under the Movie Voter act that Requires list maintenance. Work with a center/right lawfare group if required to file suit to make them clean up the rolls.

        Almost every State requires the voter to use the physical address of their residence for the voter registration to be valid. If not, or if they moved and didn’t update it that registration is invalid and any ballot cast is ineligible.

        The key is to ID these ineligible registrations PRIOR to the ballot being accepted for counting. Once they go into the count there isn’t a mechanism to reverse it. Gotta challenge them before they get counted.

          Dathurtz in reply to CommoChief. | July 24, 2023 at 8:38 pm

          Fatfingered the downvote. Yes. Going over voter rolls and comparing them to other data is tedious, buy worth it.

          CommoChief in reply to CommoChief. | July 25, 2023 at 7:15 pm

          FWIW there are several organizations that can do this quickly and efficiently. They have done so is a few States by invitation. Other States have refused their offers and try to prevent access to the data. Not all of these ‘reluctant’ States are blue. An opportunity exists to pressure the leaders of your State to allow for outside help.

Mauiobserver | July 23, 2023 at 11:46 pm

If the GOP does move forward with the evidence aggressively going after Biden for his blatant corruption, I can see 2 possible exit strategies for those behind the scenes controlling Biden and pulling the unseen strings.

Both entail his resigning nobly for the good of the nation.

In the first case his doctors discover a condition which would limit him from carrying out his duties with the energy and outstanding leadership skills that he has consistently demonstrated during his term and career. In character Biden puts the needs of the nation above self and party and resigns pledging to do all he can in retirement to keep America moving in the right direction.

In the second scenario the corruption stink becomes too much for the Democrat machine and he resigns while accepting blame to being unaware of how evil people were using his addicted son to advance their criminal schemes. However, he will plead guilty to a couple of misdemeanors and accept a small fine to demonstrate that even though he is completely innocent a Biden always accepts responsibility and even snow-white Joe Biden is not above the law.

In both cases the Democratic party can honor their noble leader and point to his actions as a lesson to even the ultra-Maga deplorables.

    Biden is not going to voluntarily step aside unless he makes it to the Convention, so he can name his successor without a Primary contest.

      Mauiobserver in reply to The_Mew_Cat. | July 25, 2023 at 1:02 am

      If the evidence mounts enough the party bosses will remove him.

      Joe is just an empty suit who is to stupid and senile to make any major decisions.

      If the corruption m SS gets bad enough his desire to stay in office or run again will be made for him.

“From a reporting perspective, it may look and feel different than prior campaigns, but by all our metrics of success this is a proven and winning model — already helping deliver election wins for Democrats in places from Wisconsin to Jacksonville.”

i.e. Mail-in ballots and anonymous drop-off boxes.

Campaign … LOL.

I think Fuzzy needs to find new material to work with.

I just wish some of these “so called” journalists would get as fired up over political persecution of Democrats political enemies as they do at hating twruuuuuuuuuuump.

    Fuzzy has her opinion,, which is fine.. It is honest, and it is clear. I was happy today to finally read something I agreed with..

    his “hidden” bargain basement campaign strategy is a definite risk without the cover of the covid measures that helped him hide in 2020.

    If you are looking for a silver lining.. if we all agreed on everything, articles and comments would just be a cheering section, rather than a discussion. I learn from the discussions, and at my age, that isn’t easy.

    this entire website is anti-trump as we are living through the greatest perversion of any legal system in history and LI acts as disinterested as CNN

      The Gentle Grizzly in reply to MarkS. | July 24, 2023 at 8:14 am

      There’s always Conservative Treehouse, Gateway Pundit, and Breitbart.

        MarkSmith in reply to The Gentle Grizzly. | July 24, 2023 at 9:11 am

        Breitbart is not that good. Tend to like Revolver and Lucianne. Several substack sites are good too. Support for the Bush light candidate is disappointing but understanding since the elephant election fraud is not being addressed. All politics is local so it affects everything to school boards and mayors. Only way to stop it is to engaged as poll watchers, election judges…etc.

The underlying snobbish assumption of this article (and it appears, this blog) is that Trump supporters and leaders represent a highly manipulatable minority that will serve only to hand over the presidency to the Democrats. However, if that were true, Hillary Clinton would be enjoying her second term. Voters who remember the outstanding economy, low energy prices, and foreign policy success may be more willing to bring Trump back than pollsters imagine.

However, it is probably true that Democrats are attempting to manipulate the electorate into nominating Trump. If the Republican establishment and candidates think that is the case, why aren’t they creating an uproar over the indictments? Why aren’t Republicans withholding funding from the DOJ and FBI until the indictments are dropped? Why aren’t Republican presidential candidates going on CNN and MSNBC and stating that they will ask the House to impeach Biden if the charges are not dropped? The Republicans are to blame for much of this because they are not imposing a cost.

My opinion of Ron DeSantis would improve drastically if he showed some principle and backbone. He could play hard ball by deploying his campaign to fight the Trump indictments. He could win over Trump voters by showing a willingness to take risk now for de-politicizing the DOJ. I do not think a conventional candidacy can unite Republicans. As it is now, DeSantis makes milque-toast statements that suggest he could become just another establishment Republican if he gets back to DC.

    chrisboltssr in reply to kelly_3406. | July 24, 2023 at 9:47 am

    Exactly true regarding DeSantis. He is as milquetoast as they come and if he doesn’t have a polarizing target with which to focus his ire on, like Disney, he is as passive as they come.

    Lybrarious Booker in reply to kelly_3406. | July 24, 2023 at 10:16 am

    Trump took the lead in early polls in the aftermath of the absurd NYC indictment. Democrats are using lawfare, and weaponizing the DOJ, to manipulate Republican primary into voting for Trump. Why is that? Also, Ron DeSantis doesn’t owe anything to his campaign rival – to suggest he should “deploy his campaign” to fight on behalf of Trump instead of voters is bizarre.

      Dolce Far Niente in reply to Lybrarious Booker. | July 24, 2023 at 11:13 am

      The point being, if DeSantis expects to win over Trump voters (many of whom are not knee-jerk Republicans but disaffected Ds and indies) then he needs to shed his passivity over the weaponization of the Federal bureaucracies..

      If he believes that fighting for a real conservative principle, even if on behalf of a campaign rival, is bizarre as you do, then he relinquishes any hope of attracting these votes.. And deservedly so.

      There appears to be a belief among establishment GOP types that there is some huge pool of heretofore silent voters yearning for a country-club Republican candidate, anxious to vote for, a George Bush the 3rd which will save the GOP from irrelevancy (and also allow them to keep their phony baloney jobs.)

        healthguyfsu in reply to Dolce Far Niente. | July 24, 2023 at 11:58 am

        He’s spoken out against it repeatedly….you were too far up Trump’s ass to notice.

          MarkSmith in reply to healthguyfsu. | July 24, 2023 at 1:15 pm

          Ha ha ha, that is funny. So Bush lite is not getting my vote becasue my head is up someones ass? Our problems is the Uniparty. Bush lite appears to be part of it.
          If you would pay attention and not be distracted by TDS, you would see what DFN is saying. I know diehard Democrats that voted against Clinton and Biden. They tell me they are not interested in Bush Lite. They voted for Trump because is in not the Uniparty candidate. When all the favors of ice cream are peach and I hate peach, I am going for the strawberry if it is available.

          The level of effort to discredit Trump so Bush Lite is the choice is amazing. Trump is the only President to speak in person at the Right to Life protest and he appointed the judges that overturned Roe vs Wade. They now want to paint him a pro-choice candidate. Bush lite is not my guy. the RNC has lost touch with the voting base.

          Pretzel logic for the past 8 years has Auntie Anne’s going out of business.

        CommoChief in reply to Dolce Far Niente. | July 25, 2023 at 3:42 pm

        This is a truthful and incredibly insightful comment; Trump voters ‘many of whom are disaffected D and Indies’.

        Unless those voters register as GoP voters they can’t vote in the GoP primary in the overwhelming majority of States. That many of them haven’t done so yet is troubling both for Trump’s chances in the primary and for the GoP.

        In many respects these folks have created through their actions and statements the image of a Carpet bagger swooping down to tell the GoP members they MUST vote for Trump in the primary.

        A primary held to choose the nominee for President from among the candidates who chose to run as GoP candidates. A political party to which these Only Trump voters in many cases have neglected or refused to join. Yet they wish to insist which candidate the GoP selects as their nominee. The cognitive dissonance is deafening.

      kelly_3406 in reply to Lybrarious Booker. | July 24, 2023 at 11:20 am

      It is not that bizarre. Do you really think DeSantis is not next if Trump is out of the way? If the Libs are allowed to gang up on individual candidates one by one without penalty, then we are destined to lose this election (and more of our individual freedoms). This Lawfare is clearly unconstitutional and it has quickly evolved past dirty politics — it is approaching the realm of unconventional warfare that we see in failed states. I think it would be an act of self preservation for DeSantis and other candidates to fight this.

    GravityOpera in reply to kelly_3406. | July 24, 2023 at 5:44 pm

    Just because the attempt barely failed, Hillary still won the popular vote, doesn’t negate the media’s obvious manipulation of the primary campaign by heaping attention on Trump while practically ignoring the other candidates.

thalesofmiletus | July 24, 2023 at 11:23 am

You don’t need a campaign when you have “fortification” to ensure the “proper outcome”.

Please vote next year. It might make a difference but likely not. Here is what is going to happen next year. The “ballots” have already been printed, boxed and ready for distribution after the polls close, same as in 2020. Whoever the dem presidential candidate is will “win” in a “landslide”. The dems will take back the House. They got complacent in ‘22 thinking that their candidates would walk in. They won’t make that same mistake again. They will also increase their lead in the Senate. Bookmark this post. I have been right every time. The Republic is lost.

The_Mew_Cat | July 24, 2023 at 1:02 pm

Trump is going to be jailed without bond when he is indicted for the J6 cases – just as all other J6 defendants were jailed until trial. If you certain opponent is in prison and cannot actually campaign, why should Biden need to campaign either? He can let the Media campaign for him just as he did in 2020. The Dems also know that Trump’s main rival for the nomination (DeSantis) in unelectable in a swing states because of Abortion, and therefore they have no worries in that department.

I think a number of people commenting here labor under the illusion that the D party is the same as it was 50+ years ago. The D party is no longer “democratic” in the sense that many people think it is. It has morphed into straight out Marxism/Communist, and if there is one fast tenet of Marxism/Communism, it is to gain power by any means necessary.

Rules and fair play are for losers and the little people.

So 1 Director and 3 staffers for $1.4 M
Director pulling in $900,000 and 3 staffers $166.666
Read Sundowner’s administration has overwhelmed the cost of personal, the Monkey Pox Czar makes $230G

Let’s be blunt. The ruling Communists now control everything – media, education, BigTech, Wall Street, government bureaucracies, even institutions we thought were conservative and immune from Sullivan’s law – FBI, Military, sports, Wal-mart, country music.

The elections are now fixed beyond any hope of overcoming them. The ruling Communists will never, ever lose another national election and anyone talking about cheating will be jailed. They will consolidate their power until the whole country is as Communist as California.

We are no longer a democracy and only parts of the country can be saved. And they can only be saved by secession. It will be bloody, but the alternative will be a genocidal Marxist regime bent on getting rid of all us “deplorables”.

It sucks, but that’s the way it is.

    JR in reply to Eric R.. | July 24, 2023 at 6:32 pm

    So, your conclusion is to just not vote and let all of the Democrats/Socialists/ Communists win? What a loser you are. You and your ilk would be better off if you just committed suicide.

      nordic prince in reply to JR. | July 25, 2023 at 12:34 am

      Ad hominems and straw men. Those are some powerful arguments you’ve presented in your rebuttal, Einstein.

So I followed this thread through. Seems that the Only Trumpers are convinced that Trump will lose. At the same time it seems that those who want another candidate to be nominated also think that Trump will lose. So, here my idea: nominate somebody else.
