Yes the insanity trying to split conservatives. DO NOT FALL FOR IT TURN OFF THE TV. The media will do all it can to split us up. We have to stand together no matter what.

Not only turn off the TV.

stop funding them with your cable subscription.

Get a free streaming service and pay for what you want!!!

What free services do you use? We don’t pay for anything right now, which means we aren’t watching much except some yt stuff.

I dumped my sat dish last year, and got a Roku. I pay for the ad-free Hulu.

Personally, I've been into watching the 80/90s sitcoms. My latest binge watching is Home Improvement, with Tim Allen. Timeless laughs.

I also got Foxnation- but only to watch Tucker Carlson. (also commercial-free)

And I recently installed Rumble via my Roku and was watching Charlie Kirk on election day.

Oh, and I also hit up the local used bookstore and stocked up on reading material, and just turned the boob tube off completely. My life is so much calmer. :)

For Fox stuff, go to Rumble via Roku and subscribe to Foxmuldernews. You can get what you want commercial free there, including Gutfeld which is awesome. We also watch Real America Voice and OAN via Roku (have to pay 4.99/mth for OAN, but it's worth it, and since they keep getting banned, I look at it like a donation.

I love my Roku. I'll search out a few tv series or movies and then when I have several on one premium channel ("Starz" or whatever) I'll subscribe for a month or two, watch what I want, then cancel. Some have a 7, 14, or 30 day free trials, too. I like tubi, freevee and the free subscriptions to discovery+ (husband likes some shows there), Peacock and Paramount+. I also have a yearly subscription to PureFlix when it went on sale. I have the YouTube, Rumble and odyssee apps installed.

We pay for OAN. How refreshing that was on election night. We do not watch Fox, Newsmax or any others. They are all garbage. We also have a Roku tv. We also got a fire stick. I hate Amazon but we only pay for what we want. We don’t do any of that Alexa garbage.

If you have Roku, look for the Pluto channel. They do have ads, but live tv, OAN, War Room, Real America's Voice, and a lot of variety, from current to classics.

Pluto is very lgbt friendly... some of their ads are atrocious! we have to mute them frequently, but they have a lot of the shows we like for free!

I can ignore movies or shows with which I disagree, but the ads! It has happened suddenly. The campaign ads were overwhelming, but they've been replaced with "can I unsee that?" pharma ads. (The funny thing is, on these 'drugs for everything' commercials, they tell about every single possible complication -including death - yet there is never a peep about complications when they are dancing and singing for the almighty injections. It's a miracle concoction!)

I think it's nearly impossible to find any broadcast media that hasn't bought into the ESG, CRT, LBGT agendas. The only option is to throw the TV out the window, along with the cell phone. Coming soon!

My LG Smart TV has XUMO. If your remote is like mine, there is a house button. When you click on it, it tells you the internet apps you can download like Youtube or Netflix. But there should be a button for directions on your Smart TV to use XUMO. Or you could google for how to use XUMO on an LG Smart TV if yours is different from mine. I used to buy Amazon Prime for the tv/movies, but no need to now. One app that I downloaded was FreeBe (sp?) it also has a lot of movies with commercials.

Edit because I just saw you can go to settings, go to channels, and turn on LG Channels. Do not feel to bad. I did not find this until a year into my new TV.

Trump is doing a good job himself of trying to split off DeSantis supporters by his vindictive threats to spill the beans on him -

During an interview with Fox News Digital published Tuesday -

“I don’t know if he is running. I think if he runs, he could hurt himself very badly. I really believe he could hurt himself badly,” Trump said. “I think he would be making a mistake, I think the base would not like it — I don’t think it would be good for the party.”

Trump then alluded to exposing some dirt on DeSantis without specifying.

“I would tell you things about him that won’t be very flattering — I know more about him than anybody — other than, perhaps, his wife,” Trump said.

This marks the second time in less than a week that the former president has hit at Ron DeSantis after referring to him as “Ron DeSantimonious” during a rally over the weekend."

How can one gloss over such malicious insinuations when considering a president? Today he's blaming his wife for Oz' defeat by her "poor advice". In addition to which his fans seem quite blind to his refusal to acknowledge the devastating adverse events of the vaccines he continues to praise. A pity at his age he hasn't been able to overcome his overweening pride.

Expand full comment

In my mind this shows how Trump is in it only for himself. His ego gets in the way. He is NOT STRATEGIC on behalf of the Republican Party at all. I would like to see a higher caliber Candidate for the Conservatives in 2024 (than Trump). He is too divisive, has a loose undisciplined tongue, isn’t polished nor impressive with the way he conducts business or makes decisions, he even reveals security concerns if he thinks it’ll show he’s an important man. It’s ridiculous. He’s a loose canon. We need someone who can reach across the aisle when needed to influence behaviors. Trump isn’t that.

Re: Trump & his behavior towards DeSantis. I’ve posted on his TruthSocial my plea to HUSH! Stop the rhetoric that damages the both!!!

there are still a lot of people with TDS. i wonder if some of his pre-election negative desantis comments were actually helpful in garnering votes for desantis.

Expand full comment

I agree a divided house cannot stand. However, truth is so important. Just as Jeff shared that the establishment is stretching the truth with the narrative after the election, I believe the truth needs to be told about donor monies. Trump is angry because many of his donors have left him and given to Desantis. This summer this was reported and you can check it yourself with the donor lists.

Trump wasn’t running a campaign, DeSantis was. I’m sure the money will shift back to Trump now that the DeSantis race is over.

Trump needs to just get out of it. He's too old and too divisive. Anyone can see this from how much we still talk about him after 2 years of him not being in office.

Expand full comment

To be fair, we talk about Trump because of all the democrats and RINO’s hatred towards him and their intense desire to hang him for something. Jan 6 and the raids on his home and businesses since Biden took office were not done by Republicans and this narrative is being incessantly pushed by democrats, the main stream media and the far left liberals. I personally think he needs to tone it down some and show some humility, but he is in fight mode (I think) for his life as he’s known it. I mean they’re trying to ruin him, his businesses, his kids... I’d be fighting too.

I am in regular contact with many vocal conservatives ... we mostly feel the same about this “issue”, are just waiting to see which way we go ... both desantis and trump are strong leaders. I prefer the former because I had good time to witness trump weaknesses and honestly he’s a bit old and battle worn. Desantis is shiny and new and very inspiring! Anyway, I do not see this as much of a thing to worry over

Expand full comment

Agree, not to worry over. Soap Opera for the MSM..

Not Real.

Expand full comment

Problem is, DeSantis will be bought and paid for by his big money donors. I don’t think he’ll be able to do what needs to be done, nor will he even be allowed to try. Trump can be independent enough and will at least try.

DeSantis means RINO GOPe in control and nothing really gets done. Just an illusion here and there. Trump means some great ideas but with the unrelenting hatred coming from his own party, the press and the Democrats, it will be very difficult to achieve what needs to be done.

I will support either, but I fundamentally disagree with the festival of hate on either side.

@Jeff, I saw Trump's post from yesterday on Truth Social where he states:

"Now that the Election in Florida is over, and everything went quite well, shouldn't it be said that in 2020, I got 1.1 Million more votes in Florida than Ron D got this year, 5.7 Million to 4.6 Million? Just asking?"

Why is he making it a competition? We really need them to be fighting united. They BOTH are super important to the freedom and peace of our country. Why can't they work together? Or is he simply seeing DeSantis as a threat to his presidency in 2024? What is your take on that?

I just don’t understand why Trump can’t run in 2024 Then Ron run in 2028. To me that’s the best plan. Have both back eachother up with endorsements.

Expand full comment

All politicians know to strike while the iron is hot. Many waited and were an afterthought four years later. No idea if Desantis wants to run now, but politically speaking, this would be the best time. Personally, I am sure he is weighing the fact that he has young children and a wife who just beat cancer and is probably still suffering after effects of chem.

Trump has a valid point if what you mean is that he got 5.7 Million votes and DeSantis got 4.6 Million votes this year... Also, many people have since moved to FL from Blue States - DeSantis should have done better and he ran against a fake candidate who is a Cameleon...

Expand full comment

everyone knows that presidential elections turn out more voters. Trump will lose support on the road that he is on. He is already maxed out his following. People either love or hate him. He will lose middle of the road people if he keeps going after DeSantis for no reason. I could list 500 other republicans that are in front of DeSantis for him to worry about. If he wanted support, he should have something like this "All current republican governors should contact DeSantis and ask him for the playbook on how to make a state go deep red. He has done a fantastic job in Florida as governor"

Expand full comment

YES!!! THIS!!! Why not maximize the voters together!! You nailed it! I cannot for the life of me understand why he would try and pick a fight with DeSantis other than ego. Put the country first. That is what his whole Presidency was about. Do not try to divide the people on this. Team up and stand together to save this country!

Expand full comment

With the full backing and protection of the GOP branch of the Uniparty machine, with their desperate need to finish off Donald Trump, DeSantis has done a decent job in Florida as Governor. But nothing beyond what any decent human should do and with many things not sufficiently addressed, such as Florida becoming the Abortion Capital of the Southeast. And Governor being a position he first obtained, because of the endorsement he finally had to reluctantly request from Trump.

So we Trump supporters should sit down and shut up, huh? I don’t want another George W. Bush faux conservative candidate, thank you.

He still needs to come clean on the gene therapy "vax" injuries and deaths. A very large number of folks see that as a hard line.

Agreed. It's a hard line for me. His ego is also a huge turnoff but could be overcome for me if not for the Warp Speed stuff. I'm on the fence atm, but it's not looking good. DeSantis has none of these issues and I am an enthusiastic fan.

(For background, I don't consider myself a Republican or even really much of a conservative, but I'm certainly also NOT a Dem-- but used to be in my youth. FWIW, there are MANY just like me that I am in online political groups with.)

Expand full comment

Not trying to argue, just curious. When you say you are not an R what is it that holds you back? What does 'R' mean to you? I get that the national party is a joke, and that communicating what 'being a R' actually means has been terrible.

Just for reference point, I became an R in the Reagan years, as the idea of individual liberty (vs the 'collective') and smaller government and lower taxes appealed to me. I know the party has failed to deliver on those promises, both side spend like drunken sailors, but I still work for and support candidates who do hold those ideals and actually stick to them (more of them are at state and local than national though). And all of those do have an R by their name.

As a Christian who understands the truth of God’s Word I could never vote for a Democrat. They are the anti-God party of killing babies, destruction of the nuclear family, 73+ genders, pushing transgenderism and drag queens on children; in short, the party of death and destruction.

Expand full comment

There is no simple answer to your question. Briefly, I am not a fan of the two-party system, for one thing (that would require a whole book of an explanation).

I am also very independent minded and don't really fit into any of the boxes that people like to put themselves and others into-- though I do agree with most of the R voices I am hearing these days.

Additionally, I don't have any strong feelings about the abortion issue one way or another (both "sides" make some good points imo), and the obsession that most Rs seem to have with that issue really turns me off, plus is very hard to defend against when discussing politics with my staunch D friends who may otherwise be persuaded by some of the other R points.

But your question "What does R mean to you?" is a good one. It's also one that I would love to pose to my D friends and I bet I would get a lot of answers that I would consider far from reality-based. There really are a lot of myths out there amongst Ds as to what an R actually is (I blame inane propaganda machines like Occupy Democrats in large part for that-- and the media, of course, which is just another propaganda machine, obviously). You're right that the Rs have a major communications problem, but again, that's largely due to the mainstream media.

Trump always has a reason for doing something. We don’t always understand why it’s happening at the time, but it usually becomes clear down the road.

There is plenty of fodder to bait the press that would galvanize voters! Going after DeSantis is not one of them.

This is the most important point. Only Trump has proven willing to take on the establishment. Only Trump has articulated any plan to address how to remove the "protected" leaders of the agencies that refuse to respond to the people. And the only way to address all of this is to destroy it. How?

Meet Donald J. Trump, "Chief Bull in the China Shop."

I don't really care if he's not presidential. I don't think what Biden is doing is any more presidential. And I don't think polite people can destroy the rot.

Great leaders do bold things. Great leaders generate criticism from the status quo. Great leaders persist despite the attacks.

Trump did it in term 1. DeSantis did it during COVID. Elon is doing it with Twitter (as far as we can see, and much less important than Trump).

We need to make it impossible for lifetime Professional Politicians to exist by using term limits for all elected offices. "Professional Politician" is an oxymoronic but accurate term.

When you allow lifetime political office holders, you are going to attract the absolute worst of human nature: narcissistic, greedy, power hungry sociopaths who come only from the top self-entitled tier of society who call themselves The Elite and consider themselves above the deplorables. They are our Royalty. The lifetime Professional Politician category is tailor made for them. It must be eliminated.

Exactly! We didn’t vote for him to be nice. You can’t play nice with an evil enemy like this one. You have to have thick skin and fight back against bullies. These people are rotten to the core and operate under no rules of morality.

If we are going to start getting upset with Trump because he plays mean….then go be a cry baby with the liberal tears complaining of mean tweets.

We have got to stick together. We need someone in there willing to fight, not willing to compromise and be “nice”.

I’m saying that, I believe emphatically that DJT needs to temper himself when it comes to Ron. They HAVE to stick together and work together. But IDK if Ron is strong enough to fight this kind of enemy….yet.

Nailed it, Sunnydaze. I’ll take a smart ass with a tweet any day over a dumb ass with a pen.

When you can't afford food, or fuel, have no heat, and the crime is such that you have to stayed locked in your home, will Trump's personality really be the thing that is still of first importance to you?

Why? Becuz Trump is an egomaniac.

We need a better Leader than Trump. His style of leading is more dictatorial and autocratic than Republican. When he was in office it was embarrassing (to me). We need Republican leadership without Trump dividing the party. We need Republican policies but not that particular Republican. I pray our GOP sees that too.

Trump is trying to point out some truth! Trump is the only one who has sacrificed his personal assets and power to help our nation. Trump is always sending deeper messages. Look a bit deeper into who is really supporting DeSantis. He is a "front" for some bad actors! (Even though I'm thankful for all he's done for Florida....but that's part of the "game"!)

It's already derailed. One man is not going to save us.

I'm afraid even the smart people here have not learned that yet. I just can't live in the make-believe world anymore. No offense to anyone here. Does anyone have the same mindset as me. I feel that whoever wins will eventually cave, will be stopped in any effort to right the wrongs. I think the pendulum has swung so far that only God can help us fix this mess we're in.

I do agree with you.....no man will save us, not Trump, not DeSantis, only Jesus. As human beings they are both flawed as are we all. Trump has his own "bad stuff" weighing him down, like the million $ from Pfizer, touting the jab without acknowledging now that it is harming and not helping people, whether he thought it was a good idea at the start or not, now he needs to open his eyes to the evil he helped create, even with "the best intentions", otherwise as much as I am grateful for all he did before, I would not be able to continue to support that.

Trump makes everything a competition! That is who he is. That attitude made him a good decision maker, but is not particularly presidential.

Yes, and Trump is a flawed person with an enormous skilled set. And I don't see how Trump could do what he did in the Manhattan real estate market without being an 'enormous' figure.

And he does 'get things done' pronto.

I am not happy with Trump's covid performance. Could have been better even factoring the mass hysteria factor and with The Swamp trying to bury him with a mountain full of landslides. Figure this, even with all of this and the J6 PsyOpt, Trump is still there and a huge political presence.

I would still vote Trump even given the failures. We are greatly indebted to Trump for all the exposures of corruption and evil (such as trafficking). And in a large way, Trump set the stage for those who followed.

Whatever the analysis, the biggest thing I like about Trump is that Trump cares about people, regular people like us grunt always doing the heaving lifting. How does one know this! Because it is not just a political stage show. Trump was helping out regular folks long before the political stuff came along.

For those people who do not believe there is rampant election fraud in the US, please find and follow "Follow the Data with Dr. Frank" on Truth Social or Telegram, as well as Seth Keshel. They both have been traveling the country showing county election officials how the number of votes in the 2020 election could not have mathematically happened. Dr. Douglas Frank is an award winning mathematician, and when you look at his data on how counties voted, you can easily see the fraud. Big jumps in votes seen in Georgia and other places are vote dumps by the computers, which have been programmed to add a certain number of democrat votes for each republican votes.

Expand full comment

Really, do you think that those vote numbers that are transferred via a modem or a physically transported memory device could be tampered with? Pure child's play. We need paper ballots that are manually tabulated with at least two people looking at each ballot and those teams need to be randomly selected so there is no collusion between them. In addition, I think any member of the electorate should be able to observe those processes. I don't care if it takes a month to determine who the winners are if that equates to fair elections.

Expand full comment

Love Dr. Frank. And once you see his work, you can’t unsee his work. Our elections do not belong to the people anymore. You can pull a fast one like Dewine did and than you are stuck voting for the best of two evils. That is politics. But denying the machines are connected to the internet and being manipulated by algorithms in each state needs to stand front and center because I believe this to be the case. Otherwise, in looking at some of the people elected like Whitmer, Hochal, Insley, Fetterman, and Newsome,........ my hope for our nation’s survival is fading.

We also need to support Kelly Tshibaka, who is running against RINO Lisa Murkowski. Although Murkowski is a Republican, she reliably votes with the Dems and is an ally of Mitch McConnell. McConnell has financially supported Murkowski against Tshibaka. Tshibaka was ahead, but because of a bizarre election system that the Murkowski family put in place to protect them from grassroots candidates, there will be successive runoffs, and Tshibaka may lose. If Tshibaka beats Murkowski, it is like flipping a seat from blue to red. I heard her talk on Warroom, and she could use money because the fight may take longer than Walker's.

And by the way, the real problem is McConnell, not Trump, as far as these midterm elections go. He is the reason that the Senate is in jeopardy.

Hi Help Needed in KS---->>this can not be overstated. Help needed in KS desperately and immediately. No one in this state is apparently A) Looking for work or 2) Willing to work once hired and C) Willing to quit when they do quit they just stop showing up. I’m mainly talking about 50% of millennials and all of Gen Z here as the rest of us are all suffering greatly in this barren field us Gen X and yes Boomers who are STILL WORKING even tho they are old AF.

It's like that everywhere- my son is a restaurant kitchen manager and they cannot find or keep workers. He frequently tells us he will hire someone and on their first day of work, they take a cigarette break and never come back. He also has to NOT fire people for disciplinary reasons because he know he cannot fill that position. I don't know what the solution is.

Same in PA. My favorite Thai food place went take out only during Covid thanks to our Gov. Was there the other day and he wants to re-open to in person dining, but can't find any staff to help out, and he and his wife can't do it alone.

Who would have thought paying people to sit at home would have repurcussions?

Ain’t that the gd truth? Not only do I show up, I come a few minutes early, prepared to work immediately and cheerful about it not 15 min late (Starbucks line sorry guys) and heading straight to the bathroom to pee and fix the face paint. Sadly it’s taken EIGHT LONG BARREN YEARS of this star studded behavior (I also don’t call in sick or make huge mistakes costing the company $$) to get a single raise. Thanks for that 2% Charles (or whoever the CEO is now I can’t keep up I just keep blaming Charles). Lucky for him I did get a financial incentive to stay for 2 years that goes directly into my retirement account (stock options but who’s complaining). But seriously could I be any less respected? My company is offering HUGE sign on bonuses for pharmacy managers in some locations and NO ONE CARES (or applies). They could at least try and treat those of us who are worth a crap a little better. It’s only going to get worse (it’s not gotten anything but worse in my 15 years with this company). I only stay bc I have it fairly good as far as hours I work and that I don’t have to immunize which is next to impossible to find in the retail sector these days.

Del Bigtree described Covid jabs as training your immune system like the defense of a football team which can only defend against a run play up the middle. Everything else is going to go right around them. This includes not only variants, but other flus, cancers, etc. He also said this over a year ago. Have you all noticed your friends and colleagues getting sick with absolutely everything? And through the summer, when colds aren’t usually being passed around? And every time, they proudly announce, “But it’s not Covid! I tested!”

Expand full comment

Yes that is a very accurate analogy. This is why the flu season will be particularly bad this year and they are already seeing this. No functional immune systems. "My immune system is just fine, thank you." (ie no jab) That was my canned response when I was asked if I wanted the shot.

Also don’t forget those two hunky doctors who run an Immediate Care facility in California (if my memory serves me) who were swiftly de-platformed for suggesting other treatments and talked of boosting the immune system.

Friendly edit:

"Vote-by-mail" is what Florida does, and what was formerly known as 'absentee' voting. The voter must request a ballot to be sent to them, and it must be signature-verified.

"Mail-in voting" is where a valid ballot is automatically mailed to everyone currently on the voter rolls, whether alive or dead, state resident or moved.

Ballot harvesting is easier with mail-in voting, but as we could see in Orange County it's still possible even with vote by mail.
