Ron lost me when I saw the picture of him recently sharing a stage with Jeb Bush. Poor judgement at best.

Isn’t Trump also a citizen of his State? Such a lack of courage to stand up against this Witch Hunt! Losing credibility with Conservatives each day!

DeSantis is clearly trying to tow the political line, so as to not offend the establishment, and independents. But what he did do, was offend Trump supporters, and that was a foolish decision.

Still feel this way after seeing his response?

Yes, I don't trust Desantis.

I do. DeSantis response was weak and at the end, disparaged Trump.

I totally agree with you Linda

Thank you for leading by example.

Ron DeSantis lost me when I found out who his friends and supporters are: The Bushes, the RINOs (sorry that’s the same) - anyway I think he finally showed his true self - hope true Americans are FINALLY paying attention. He won’t be the “first” anything so they can’t fall for that malarkey again.

Bravo Raheem...as always you are ahead of the curb and cut through the white noise . You explained the puzzling name calling by Trump to DeSantis one year and a half ago, that they were based on the underhanded, backstabbing and insidious attacks he and his glboalist surrogates were inflicting on Trump. While the appropriately labeled DEsanctimoniously "faux mature" Ron, sits back, grabs his popcorn and revels in the information warfare and attacks. Thanks and love these podcasts btw...have missed your punditry :))

It is looking more like DeSantis would make a good vice presidential candidate for Mike Pence. They both seem to be getting funding from the same hedge fund billionaires. I used to think DeSantis would have made a good Vice Pres. under Trump where he would really get a chance to learn on the job from the master and be able to run for President after that term. Now: meh! I am wondering if Desantis is self - sabotaging his run for president because he, deep down, feels he is not up for the job. But, politician's ego are often sufficient to derail their aspirations, so who knows.

They could run as the colon ticket, because they are both full of shit.

A red flag went up for me a long time ago when Ron DesLoyal never talked about the obviously stolen election from Trump. I ignored that because I wanted to like him. The Jeb Bush photo (Jeb clapping away in the background during RDS over-the-top inauguration) made me cringe in an et tu Brute moment. After that, like Raheem, I could not bare to listen to him horrible speaking ability and nasal voice. And I will never vote for him given he's now shown to be completely tone deaf to the base. DeLoser.

Thank you, Raheem. Always insightful and informative. Yes. Ron DeSantis is revealing himself. Trump got him elected, weasel Ron turns his back on him. And Ron’s connections and funding by Globalists and Rinos is a reveal, but sadly most don’t have time to dig that deep. Sooo we have you! God Bless you! From Canada. Honk! Honk!

Rose, Ma'am, do you know my age and background?

Everyone lives in a glass house of one sort or another.

For example, I grew up in huts, very poor (i am not now). My grandmother raised us & me, took me with her everywhere as she explored churches and the way people behaved in them. But, certain aspects may be considered to have been a house of glass. So, Ms. Rose, with your superior knowledge, how old am i?

As I sit here under my fuzzy blanket with a cup of chamomile tea....Not really! Here at my desk listening through the audio link in Substack. Raheem, first of all I thank you INCESSANTLY for the lovely English accented audio. We miss your voice and am delighted you took the time to record. The music is a bit...how would you say...cheeky? but adds charm, as well.

As far as Ron is concerned, is Trump not a Floridian? Is Ron not "all about protecting Floridians?" If they arrest Trump with drag queens, THEN would Ron speak out against it? Its disgraceful and yes, that we are even discussing a former and more than likely FUTURE President being arrested is third world dialogue.

For the people still talking about mean tweets GROW UP! Seriously? Mean tweets don't sting the pocketbook like this lunatic in office and his radical, looney administration.

Again, thank you for the audio. The single malt is on me next time you're in DFW. Perhaps we should arrange a visit to our Republican Club in our "over-active" adult community. I think you'd have a blast and well, we all probably spend too much time gathering around happy hour.

PS - is the monthly pledge being billed through another source now? I saw a charge for LOGAN CIRCLE GRP pending ilo American Principles Project.

Hey, Raheem? Thanks for the lovely audio XOXO

Mr. Raheem, would you agree that DeSantis is probably the ONLY other candidate who could run successfully if Trump is taken out?

IF so, then what are we doing by destroying our second choice and if the left is successful in removing Trump from the run, who among early announcer candidates will fulfill that spot?

Instead of destroying viable conservative candidates, why not focus on the real enemy, i.e., Soros, Zuckerberg, the west and east coast super wealthy elites that have destroyed out higher education insitutions and are very close to destroying our military with the wokeness, aka, blatant communism. By destroying a fellow conservative, we are assisting the left destroy our chances of reestablishing our republic.

Mr. DeSantis is an excellent governor of FL and he would be a great president were he really to run. He brings honesty and truth to the front. This is especially notable after enduring such despicable politicians like Schumer, Pelosi, Schiff, others on the left. America needs more politicians like Ron DeSantis.

Expand full comment

You are willing to settle for less than the best. Yes, DeSantis has done a great job as Governor. But he is no warrior that will clean up the deep state and knows nothing of foreign affairs. And his funding is questionable at best and makes him beholden to others agendas. Trump is independent of big $ donors interests. He is unapologetically for the people.

Expand full comment

Hi, I am willing to settle for anyone who will win over the left. First, I fully support Trump and have donated to his campaign for years now. Nevertheless, the LEFT is dominant here now and they will never give up. They lie incessantly and cheat all the time. IF they take out Trump, who will be call on? Please do not think for even one moment that they will also not go after DeSantis once Trump is outside. Do not forget the left has the media and they are 24/7 on course to take out whomever we select. I merely say we should not attack our own side in case we might need them later.

He is not ready....... Trump can handle what is happening to this country......De Santis has no international presence.....he has not dealt with China and Iran.... or Russia........

We need someone in there to stand up to them....Trump has and he will again......Plus...... as a businessman......He can pull our economy back together just as he did before after Obama....... DeSantis is not ready to take all of this on........Unless of course..... he has been placating all of us and is actualy priming for the left.......... after all he is besties with Jeb Bush.... and little Jebbie got his feathers ruffled by Trump in his bid for the top....
