GOP Rep. Says It’s ‘Important’ Trump Not be 2024 Nominee

But without MAGA’s voting power, no candidate stands a chance.

Published

The future of the Republican Party is truly not certain at this time, and the infighting among the disparate factions of the GOP is reaching a bit of a fever pitch of late.

There are essentially two sides to the coin at this moment:  The old guard GOP, who are the moderate Republicans and fiscal conservatives of the nation.  These are your Reagan-ites and the religious right.

And then there’s the MAGA movement – a far more radical, right wing group that take their marching orders from one man and one man only:  Donald Trump.

These two sides are undoubtedly combative with one another, and will likely continue to escalate their beef right up until the moment in which the 2024 presidential nominee is chosen.

For some within the moderate faction of the Republican Party, the idea that Trump could be in that conversation is a real problem.

House Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) said Monday it is unlikely that former President Donald Trump will serve as the Republican nominee for president in 2024.

“I don’t think that that’s going to happen,” Cheney told the Washington Examiner. “And I think it’s important that it not happen, given what he did.”

Cheney, one of ten House Republicans who voted to impeach President Trump on the charge of inciting a riot on January 6, said she “certainly would never vote for a Democrat” and stated she does not believe Trump “should be president again.”

When asked by the New York Post if she would consider a run for president in 2024, Cheney said, “I’m not ruling anything in or out — I’ve been here a long time.”

Cheney took some of Trump’s surrogates to task as well.

“I think we have a huge number of interesting candidates, but I think that we’re going to be in a good position to be able to take the White House,” she added. “I do think that some of our candidates who led the charge, particularly the senators who led the unconstitutional charge, not to certify the election, you know, in my view that’s disqualifying.”

Trump has made it exceedingly clear that he plans to at least explore the possibility of running again in 2024, even going so far as to tell Sean Hannity that he’s “beyond” serious about it.

Cuomo Announces Bribery Meant to Bump Up Vaccination Numbers

Local leaders are banging their heads against the wall trying to find creative new ways to circumvent vaccine hesitancy.

America is on the precipice of a grand recovery, the likes of which we haven’t experienced in over a century, but some authorities are concerned that a slowing of our vaccination rates could set the whole house of cards aflame. Vaccine hesitancy has long been an issue in this effort, with US citizens having long been distrustful of both the government and the pharmaceutical industry, (often for good reason).  This, combined with the recent news of a number of adverse side effects, has driven participation in the vaccination drive down drastically, forcing a number of local leaders to take drastic action.  On Wednesday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said the Mets and Yankees Major League Baseball teams would give free tickets to fans who got vaccinated at the ball parks before games. And he’s not the only one. New Jersey and Connecticut are partnering with bars and brew pubs to offer a free drink to people who are newly vaccinated, while Maryland announced it would give $100 to state employees who get inoculated. In Colorado, a non-profit organization is planning to reach out to rural conservatives – a group that includes many vaccine skeptics – at county fairs and rodeos. Immunize Colorado also will use pop-up and Zoom events to appeal directly to immigrant groups and communities of color, where issues of access and distrust of the medical establishment have prevented many people from rolling up their sleeves. The worry is that vaccine hesitancy could lead to a delay in reaching “herd immunity” in the United States, which is necessary in order to prevent further mutations of the COVID-19 virus.

Ron DeSantis Trolls Mainstream Media with Bill Signing Stunt

The outrage came quickly.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has long been a thorn in the side of the liberal left, and this week is certainly no different. DeSantis on Thursday signed one of the strictest voting enforcement bills in the nation, in a move that has been applauded by conservative groups around the country. Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida signed new voting legislation into law on Thursday. It enacts restrictions on voting by mail and at drop boxes, which Democrats and activists warn could suppress voter turnout. DeSantis, a Republican, signed the bill, which was passed by the GOP-controlled legislature last month, live on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” during an interview with the show’s hosts. Throughout the week, the governor had been holding more formal bill-signing ceremonies across the state as he signed bills into law. DeSantis argued that the bill protects the “integrity and transparency” of Florida’s elections and that after the 2020 election, which was successful, the changes will keep the state “ahead of the curve,” echoing the message Republicans have used for months to push back on criticism of their legislation. But DeSantis’ choice to bar all media outlets except for Fox News was controversial. https://twitter.com/stevebousquet/status/1390268388493103104?s=20 https://twitter.com/jayobtv/status/1390274698370551810?s=20 https://twitter.com/RedWingGrips/status/1390300886031798272?s=20 https://twitter.com/stevebousquet/status/1390285632761733123?s=20 DeSantis also made headlines on Friday for providing every law enforcement officer in the state with a $1,000 bonus.
