Deranged Democrats Stir Up a ‘GOP Civil War’ Narrative

Civil War

Did you hear there’s a new Civil War? That’s right. It’s Trump versus DeSantis and GOPers against the Ultra Mega MAGAs and their King. It’s a horrible, terrible war in which the GOP is smashing itself to pieces, dontchaknow. According to the always reliable and fair legacy media and Democratic Party. They would never make things up or mislead Americans. Said no one ever.

The Democrats new GOP civil war narrative is dumb, but it provides the media with an excuse to ‘report’ on that instead of Biden’s embarrassing gaffes during his G20 trip to Bali. Or how the Republicans won the midterm popular vote 51%-47% facilitating their takeover of the House of Representatives. And there’s no reason to notice Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer both announcing they would not be running again for the House Democratic leadership positions.

Not only did the Democrats lose the House with a 221-214 margin, their grand plan to scare Trump out of running for president again didn’t quite pan out. The former president did indeed announce he is running for a second term adding to the media’s insistence of the calamity of the civil war.

There are so many headlines so it must be true. Googling “GOP Civil War” generates 676 million results. Axios breathlessly announced, “A Republican civil war is erupting at virtually every level of the party…this is only the beginning…”. “The Republican Civil War Starts Now” Newsweek opined with a generous topping of hope. NPR helpfully asks, “GOP Civil War: What’s It All About?” The answer? Not much. Like meringue, it looks like there’s a lot there but it’s just something whipped up on purpose to look substantial.

This new narrative is about the Democrats hoping and wishing and praying that the GOP burns itself out before the 2024 presidential race so the Democrats can continue to burn the country down without suffering any more rude interruptions, like competitive elections.

While there’s no civil war, there are differences of opinion, and some conservative leaders are indeed very unhappy that Trump is running again, and that’s their prerogative. Some have said he shouldn’t run at all. Not surprisingly, at least one expressing dismay has his own interest in becoming president.

The pathetic bitterness fueling the establishment’s desperation to keep Trump from running is a bizarre thing to watch considering the national conversation about the importance of our democracy and commitment to election security. When asked by a reporter about Trump running again, President Biden said he would make sure Trump wouldn’t take power. “We just have to demonstrate that he will not take power if he does run, making sure he — under legitimate efforts of our Constitution — does not become the next president again.”

What? Can someone tell the Democrats that’s not how this works?

The nation has been lectured about Trump, his supporters, and the GOP posing a “threat to democracy” by the very same president who comfortably says to a room full of people, including reporters, that their plan is to “make sure” a candidate they don’t like won’t become president.

Exactly how would this sort of political thuggery generate the public trust a government rests upon? This is exactly the sort of corruption Americans have been so concerned about and contributed, in part, to support for Trump.

As for the GOP, its talent bench is deep and ambitious and that’s a good thing, and everyone who imagines they can lead this nation to prosperity and safety should welcome the opportunity to convince the American people that they are the best choice for president.

For those not drowning in derangement syndrome, Trump’s announcement was lauded by most as cool, calm, and focused. His tone was not as pugilistic as some had expected, drawing praise. As the “civil war” narrative was rolled out, even Governor Ron DeSantis came out and told everyone to cool their jets. “DeSantis…dismissed a reporter’s question about Republican infighting following the party’s mixed results in the 2022 midterm elections…‘We just finished this election, OK? People just need to chill out a little bit on some of this stuff,’ DeSantis said at a press conference.” 

DeSantis is admired by the Republican grassroots, and he has proven himself capable of handling the slings and arrows lobbed his way. He is impressive, and if he wants it, very well could end up in the White House someday.

Most every GOPer mentioned as a possible presidential candidate has things to crow about. But I also remember another political star, four-term governor of Texas Rick Perry, was widely expected to be the frontrunner when he announced his presidential run in 2012. And he was, until the debates of the campaign season revealed a man not ready for the top job and his support dwindled. He announced in August 2011, and was out in January 2012.

The GOP will emerge with the strongest candidate for 2024 only if everyone runs allowing voters of all parties and opinions to see the victor vanquish his or her opponents with better ideas and policy.

If certain politicians are too afraid to run against Trump, how can they confront the scourge of today’s Democratic Party? If they don’t have confidence they can convince the GOP base to vote for them with Trump on the field, how can they overcome the machine the Democrats have in place?

Like him or not, everyone should want Trump to run again so our final statement can not just be made, but be trusted by all of us. And if there is someone to whom the torch should be passed for the GOP, the only way of knowing that for sure is to have everyone compete.

The Republican Party needs to remain UNITED, focus only on the issues, and win over the Independents to reverse the the horrendous policies of the Democrats. We do not need a bloated government that allows open borders, energy dependency, government bailouts, unreasonable burdens to taxpayers, foreign policy cowardice, high crime, defunding the police, abandoning our troops and assets, pushing radical/perverted materials to our children/grandchildren, socialistic ideals, etc….. Creating the sense of a Republican Civil War is the next strategy that the Democrats are baiting the gullible MSM and are confident that they will run with it.

Ignore the 24/7, 365 a day negatives being thrown out there by MSM, Big Tech Social Media & newspapers around the globe are pushing, find credible alternative sources of info, it tells an entirely different story…
At a minimum allow President Trump to make those decisions on a VP further down the road, at this point it is nothing but speculation on whom he chooses as his running mate…
I will stretch this just a tad here in my sincerest hope that Kari Lake does in fact become the next governor of Arizona, that said, if Katie Hobbs continues to control the outcome of their elections ballot counts, she will in fact have stolen said election for Arizona’s next governor & once again it is WHO counts the ballots in the end that makes that final ballot count determination in AZ, PA & GA in particular…

Trump called DeSantis a stupid name instead of congratulating him on a big win. That was Trump’s own words. Lake did herself in by behaving like a child. Karrin Taylor Robson was far and away the best choice for Arizona but she was rejected in favor of Lake. Hobbs got more votes than Lake so she will be governor. Karrin Taylor Robson would have trounced Hobbs.

The reason even republicans don’t want Trump is because they have the perfect president to show them the way in Washington. They all are there to steal as much money as they can and Trump would be there to look out for the American people. No president in my lifetime has accomplished the positive things he did in 4 years, much less 8. The man is a billionaire, though he doesn’t really want to be seen as that because he has the common man’s interest at heart. The swamp has no use for an honest man. That is just old fashion, white, fat, old men, that the left blames for how bad everything is in the greatest country on earth. We probably are all to stupid to give Trump another 4 years, after all he corrected a lot of the damage of 8 years of Obama, and he could correct more damage than Biden will do in 4 years if we survive as a country until he is out of office. If 40% of the republicans stay home and don’t vote, like they did in the mid term elections, we won’t have to worry about any republican being in the white house. I still think our law makers should be alcohol and drug tested, and not be allowed to serve if on anti-depressant drugs. Clear thinking is more important by our law makers than our air line pilots. You may not think so, but take a look at Kamala explaining that local banks are local, and how we need electric school buses.

If your figure of 40% Republican voter absenteeism is correct, you can blame that on the endless barrage from Republicans in Congress and radio/TV hosts predicting a “Red Wave” and “Red Tsunami,” like the election was already in the bag. Why trouble yourself to vote when we’ve already won, some will think.

The only ones who can divide the Republican party are the Republicans themselves. I am first a conservative, and then a Republican. What bothers me is how easy it is to get our team off-message by allowing the Left to frame the narrative. It never seems to fail! It’s as though Trump never did do anything worth remembering for this nation. Instead, we’re tied up in knots over his Tweets, or comments; sometimes over statements that we actually agree with. I’ve had my own issues with Trump at times, thinking that he’s made a few unforced errors. Nevertheless, I understand that most of the movers and shakers of history were men who had issues: Winston Churchill, George Patton, Andrew Jackson, and who can forget King David? There is an array of leaders who were flawed and sometimes hard headed, but they were just what was needed at their appointed time. I believe Trump is that man for this moment. I am a big fan of DeSantis, but he’s young and we’ll need him and others like him in the future. Right now, we need a pit bull who has a proven record of negotiating with enemies abroad, securing independence at home, and expanding markets to help every class of the American citizenry.

If our side allows itself to be undermined by the phony rhetoric of the Left, I question whether this nation deserves to remain free.

Trump is the main one in this article that thrives on knee-jerk reaction. The Dems know how to poke him with a stick & he usually reacts in a way that they want him & expect him to. Trump is too defensive & ego that is trained to attack back. Today, I read that Musk will let Trump back on Twitter if he wants to & we know what Trump does with Tweets.

Yes, we know what Trump does with Tweets. He faithfully and diligently pushes back at the narratives of Leftist politicians and the media, demonstrating time after time how poorly they are performing in their roles. Yes, he gets riled up at naysayers from his own party, as well, and occasionally makes comments that he should retract. Perhaps he should have a “delay” button for someone to review his comments before they are posted at times.

But Trump’s overall handling of the MSM and Dems has been done in a way that reveals to all but the most hard-headed just how biased and anti-American those agencies are. They are operating to the detriment of the welfare of American interests and openly encouraging the globalists and those who have their sights upon the downfall of American sovereignty.

And Trump is taking them on head-first, no holds barred, whether he posts on Twitter or on Truth Social, just as he was raised in the jungles of New York City real estate development. He loves America, and wants to see America prosper.

Well SAID ” MARCIA ” That is the Absolute Truth about Trump, he does LOVE AMERICA and he Attacks those that Have No Remorse of the Things that they Do that
Hurts the American People ..

He Defended Us and NOT Those that Only Want to TAKE ADVANTAGE of The American Tax Payers, and They Have for DECADES and TRUMP Knows it and See’s it as Well , They take Exotic Vacations at our Expense (Obama’s Daughters) But Lear Jets at our Expense, Buy Parks and Put their names on it at Our Expense, Invest in Stocks, Commodities, Land Developements, Precious Metals, New Technologies On and On and On and ” WE PICK UP THE TAB ” ..

And DJT Knew of This Corruption and Was ” CRUSHING IT ” and it PISSED OFF the DNC and Others because to THEM these were the “PERKS” of being a “POLITICIAN” and he WAS A BUSINESS MAN ” OH MY GOSH ” Someone that REALLY is Doing what We Would or Should EXPECT of Those that WE ELECT into OFFICE ..

And the LEFT made a “BIG” DEAL out of this ” He’s A Business Man ” and NOT a
Politician, He’s Not Qualified .. He was MORE WORTHY of Our Admiration than
All of Them ” Nancy Pelosi, AOC, Chuck Shumer, Obama, Biden, Clintons, Harris,
WHAT DID ANY OF THEM “DO” FOR US THE ” PEOPLE ? ”

We Focused on WHAT ” HE SAID ” instead of What he was Doing and Did in the
Short period of Time alloted Him, I really Miss How he Stood up to Corporate America, other Foreign Countries when They Too was receiving BILLIONS of DOLLARS for no Apparent Reason (PR) How he was wanting to ATTACK ” HUMAN TRAFFICKING ” but the DNC wouldn’t Support Him in this Campaign ” Don’t Figure ? ”

So when YOU People “COMPLAIN” How Your Life Sucks because YOU can’t Pay YOUR BILLS, YOU have less Money, Everything is Getting Expensive, You Can’t afford Your RENTS, YOU can’t afford an Vacation, YOU may become Homeless,

Just Remember Most of YOU were NON – SUPPORTIVE of One of the Greatest Presiidents that WE Ever Have had in 50 Years and YOU Threw Him to the Wolves,

I don’t see how this fits the rest of the article: we’re talking about Trump? the Donald?

For two years I have harbored a hope that Mr. Trump could show us he’d learned some things and acquired some humility, but even before announcement he’s telegraphed that he’ll be taking the low road again.

I don’t know that he’d know a better idea or policy if it walked up and pinched him on the ear. Lucky for us he hates our enemies, but chiefly because they hated him first. Then in his no-holds-barred, scorched-earth approach to defeat them incidentally resulted in implementing things they passionately hated.

Yes, expect the Democrats to continue to use a divide and conquer strategy to ensure the Republican voter base is fragmented right up to election day in 2024. I have to laugh at some of these comments that claim we have to choose a Republican nominee that will be acceptable to Democrats or so-called Independents (actually just Democrats who like to feel “special”) that even admit they vote mostly for Democrats.

What we do is much better messaging and outreach in addition to shaming the Republican state legislatures in certain states to actually clean up the “emergency” mass mail-in balloting system, that is designed to allow so much manipulation and fraud and return to normal in person voting practices.

On the national side, I am extremely disappointed that both McConnell and McCarthy were re-elected to their leadership spots. That doesn’t bode well for addressing the messaging or outreach from a national perspective. Both were directly in charge of messaging and also candidate funding. They both did a terrible job this past election cycle and cost us a lot of congressional seats.

As for the Northeast, the Democrats have a lock on all the states you have mentioned, because the Republican party in each of those states has no new ideas, just wants to run the same small list of Republicans over and over again, and they don’t put in any real effort to either finance or publicize any of the candidates. They do the bare minimum and essentially just have a name on the ballot in most cases. That is NOT how you change hearts and minds.

Yes, while technically the final election hasn’t been done yet, the fact that well over half of the House GOP members so easily backed McCarthy after this dismal performance throughout the election cycle means that when the focus of the media moves on in a few weeks, McCarthy will get the necessary votes he needs to win. Back room deals will take care of that.

That also means we can forget any agenda beyond a few initial show bills destined to die in the Senate and an endless array of House hearings that go nowhere. After all, that is what McCarthy has already spelled out as his agenda for the House over next 2 years in a number of interviews. It’s just so sad that much more qualified members of the House don’t even get any consideration. Same goes for the GOP leadership position in the Senate.

I believe Roe v Wade sent many, young women especially, to the Democrats and is why the red wave became a red ripple.

DeSantis has very strict anti abortion views and I think that will make him very hard to elect compared to Trump when I believe most people support allowing early abortion, such as first 3 or 4 months. Also expect lots of horror stories, rare but not to be ignored,, about women with partial miscarriages whose health is endangered in some states due to delayed D and C procedures. I don’t have statistics but have read that late term abortions are very rare. Usually because something happened to the fetus, such as no more fetal heartbeat, but a miscarriage is not happening naturally. This can lead to terrible fertility destroying or even life threatening infection.

While abortion is not a big personal issue to me I see strict anti abortion positions as republicians losing a lot of support over this. Fetterman and Oz being one example.

Most who really want an abortion will travel for it. Let’s not lose elections over abortion.

Regardless of any political ramifications, abortion is at the heart of all moral issues in America. It defines how we see the sanctity of human life. If the voice for the unborn is silenced, we have no platform in which to stand for other moral arguements.

Where would slavery be today if there were no abolitionists?

You either have morality, or you don’t. Compromise on killing babies on demand is immoral! Now, I personally feel that there are situations where abortion is justified, but that is Extremely limited.

I agree with you both. We have to stand up and be the voice of morality and speak for the unborn babies that have no voice. But there are serious reasons why, if that procedure is banned for ANY reason the life or future ability to have children could be in serious peril. I do think that in most cases, the laws/bills that are being put forth do include this exception. But the problem lies in the representation of the Anti-abortion activists and Pro-life people by the media, making it appear that we are extreme and that our approach is not compassionate to those circumstances. Women are being stirred up and told they are losing their rights and freedoms, so they are angry and indignant about keeping what they perceive as a choice that is taken away. I understand that, but the fact remains that woman’s bodies were created to conceive and grow new life, and that is not negotiable. The answer lies in teaching young women and the importance of contraception, and the reality of adult sexuality and the debate about the necessity of abortion should remain in the knowledge and skilled hands of medical doctors who care for woman’s health.

Trump is the least moron politician and wish you would care about born babies as much as the unborn. None of this actually matters to you. It’s all about getting revenge against those not sufficiently loyal to Trump. John McCain would have made an outstanding president. I voted for republicans until Trump came along.

It amazes me that now, not only does the liberals refer to this nation as a “Democracy”, but now the Republicans are also, we are a “Republic”.

Yes, it is amazing how many Republicans just adopt the language of the Democrats and allow them to reframe the conversation based on totally inaccurate descriptions.

El Rushbo always said GOP runs with the DIMM narrative and just tries to modify it SLIGHTLY!

Charlie, you need to understand how Democrats define “Democracy”. It’s a distorted Marxist vision whereby, following the destruction of the bourgeois (the middle-class), the new majority is made up of the proletariat–those who are heavily dependent on government. You can just imagine what the popular vote would look like afterwards. That’s their democracy in action.

Our Founding Fathers would put any & all politicians to shame today… They were highly intelligent men & clearly understood why the newly formed United States would NEVER become a democracy, they were fully aware of the Greek model of Democracy, an utter failure, they were fully aware of the Roman style of government too, clearly that model wouldn’t work either, so what did they do? They created the Republic we still have to this very day with it’s ( 3 ) branches of government as well as writing our beloved Constitution with all of it’s checks & balances so as no one man can become a tyrant through absurdly made laws giving them total control over the Republic’s citizenry, i.e. We The people…Here we are, 246 years later into the future, our Constitution still stands, despite what the Democrat Socialist Party of America is attempting to do to this nation, i.e. they will FAIL in the end & it is our US Constitution that makes it so…
zoomLNZ, you have touched on a sensitive topic that more people need to learn & understand, for America was NEVER a democracy & for good reason…
Best,
Bill… :~)
