Newsmax’s top-rated host Greg Kelly warned Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis Friday night: Don’t face Donald Trump for the presidency in 2024.

The primetime star’s statement comes more than two years before the 2024 general election and months before the 2022 midterms, as behind the scenes Republican Party lieutenants mull over potential presidential candidates of the GOP 2024.

“Governor Ron DeSantis. He’s amazing, so talented, so smart, with an unlimited political future. I want him to be president one day,” Kelly began her Friday night show as a graphic appeared on screen reading, “Not yet, Ron.” “I think it’s almost guaranteed, but I’d rather not see him racing in 2024.”

Kelly’s message comes as Trumpworld does not know precisely when a Trump 2024 campaign announcement could arrive. The New York Times reported Friday that Trump could announce his candidacy “unusually early”, and the news may not come at a rally but on social media.

After airing a Florida governor highlights reel aimed at reporters, Kelly gave the eulogy before moving on to the hunt.

“Let’s face it, though, he borrows a lot from Donald Trump’s style, agenda and policies, and that’s fine,” he said. “That’s great, but I’m hearing more and more from Republicans. “Well, you know, Donald Trump has all that baggage, and it’s time for a new face.” Do not fall for this argument!

Kelly then dug in, arguing that, unlike Trump, DeSantis could be considered a “career politician.”

“Let’s see, he is forty-three now, on Election Day in November 2024 he would be forty-five. Now, here’s the thing. That makes him, what, three decades younger than then-President Trump. I’m not saying it’s a good thing, I’m saying he has a lot of time to move on, but not right now, and there are some things he needs to clean up,” the Newsmax host said. during prime time. “Just a little.”

The Newsmax host added that in 2018 he thought DeSantis should have easily beaten then-Democratic candidate Andrew Gilliam. Yet instead, he said DeSantis was “nervous” and “agitated” during a debate.

“I think that he [DeSantis] we have to work on that,” he added.

Additionally, Kelly referred to DeSantis as a wannabe Trump clone.

“Obviously he [DeSantis] studied President Trump very, very carefully. You can kind of see it in this photo at Mar-a-Lago. I mean, they’re very similar, and I think DeSantis inhaled so much Donald Trump,” Kelly said. “The agenda, the style, it’s all Trump.”

“He [Trump] changed everything, changed everything, and I think he can change it again,” the host concluded. “Here’s an idea, although constitutionally it may be complicated, Trump [and] DeSantis, on the same ticket?

Elsewhere in Trumpworld, longtime Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway has found her way back into the former president’s heart, despite the former president publicly slamming her a month ago amid talks over 2024 increase.

“I have a really good relationship with Kellyanne,” Trump told The Daily Beast on Friday night.

‘It’s a crisis’: Politicians weigh in on abortion following Supreme Court ruling https://shaughnessyforcongress.com/its-a-crisis-politicians-weigh-in-on-abortion-following-supreme-court-ruling/ Sun, 26 Jun 2022 17:11:46 +0000 https://shaughnessyforcongress.com/its-a-crisis-politicians-weigh-in-on-abortion-following-supreme-court-ruling/ Abrams added that abortion is a decision that should be left to pregnant women and their caregivers, rather than “political football where the ideology of the head of state can determine the quality of life of a woman and her ability to make choices”. she needs.” The Supreme Court’s decision has, in particular, animated progressives […]]]>

Abrams added that abortion is a decision that should be left to pregnant women and their caregivers, rather than “political football where the ideology of the head of state can determine the quality of life of a woman and her ability to make choices”. she needs.”

The Supreme Court’s decision has, in particular, animated progressives who view the Democrats’ response to date as insufficient and uninspired.

“The president and the Democratic Party have to accept is that this is not just a crisis of deer — this is a crisis of our democracy,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (DN.Y.) said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said the Supreme Court had “lost legitimacy” with its landmark rulings on abortion and other high-profile cases under the conservative majority, and she argued that the widening the bench was a necessary fix.

“We’ve done it before; we have to do it again,” Warren said on ABC’s “This Week.”

In contrast, conservatives hailed the decision as a victory for the “pro-life movement” and its half-century campaign against abortion.

“It is satisfying to know that through the constitutional process you can make a difference,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (RS.C.) said on “Fox News Sunday” in response to the overturning of the landmark 1973 ruling. “When deer came out, we didn’t burn down the Capitol as conservatives. We did not go to the Liberal judges to try to intimidate them.

Even before the decision was officially handed down, both sides had weighed up how much abortion would be a hot topic for voters in the run-up to the November election and whether it would upset the political dynamics that were tilting squarely against Democrats in recent months.

“It was won at the ballot box by the Conservatives, and we’re not going to let the Liberals bully the rule of law system into taking it away from us,” Graham said.

A Republican lawmaker was condemned for calling the Supreme Court’s decision a “historic victory for white life” during a Saturday rally with former President Donald Trump.

“President Trump, on behalf of all MAGA patriots in America, I want to thank you for the historic victory for white lives in the Supreme Court yesterday,” said Rep. Mary Miller (R-Ill.), Who faces to fellow GOP Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) because of the redistricting.

A spokeswoman for Miller said she misspoke when reading his prepared remarks and intended to say “right to life.”

In states that have moved to restrict — or ban — abortions, the problem is likely to continue to creep in as Republican lawmakers explore other ways to clamp down on the procedure or things related to it.

For example, several states are exploring ways to prevent people from using telemedicine to access abortion drugs or from traveling to another state to obtain a legal abortion.

“I don’t believe telemedicine abortions are safe for individuals, for women, to perform at home,” South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem said on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.”

And at the federal level, former Vice President Mike Pence has called for a national abortion ban if Republicans regain control of Washington, a sentiment that has been echoed by some Republicans in Congress, including Representatives Christopher Smith of the New Jersey and Ann Wagner of Missouri. All are looking ahead in hopes that Republicans will control the House and Senate after the midterms.

Other Republicans wanted the issue to remain one to be determined at the state level.

“I don’t believe we should go back to saying there should be a national law that gets passed,” Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “We fought for 50 years to get this back to the United States. We have won this battle. It’s back to the states. Let it resolve there.

In the meantime, states that protect the right to abortion are taking steps to facilitate access to these services, including anticipating an increase in the number of visitors from parts of the country where abortion will no longer be available. .

A CBS News/YouGov poll conducted after the Supreme Court ruling found that nearly 60% of respondents disapproved of the decision, more than two-thirds of them women. More than half also believe the deal was “a step backwards for America”, compared to 31% who said it was “a step forward”.

President Joe Biden sought to tap into that sentiment in a speech Friday, saying “voters need to make their voices heard.”

“This autumn, deer is on the ballot. Individual freedoms are on the ballot. The right to privacy, to liberty, to equality – they are all on the ballot,” he said.

And the decision was a shock wave that sent reverberations far beyond the United States.

Boris Johnson, the British Prime Minister, said he regretted “what appears to be a step backwards”, when asked about the case.

“The Roe vs. Wade The judgment, when it came out, was of tremendous psychological significance to people around the world, and it spoke to the advancement of women’s rights,” Johnson said Sunday in an interview on “The State of the World.” CNN’s ‘Union’.

LA CROSSE (WKBT) — Reactions to the Supreme Court’s decision striking down abortion as a constitutional right continue to pour in. Here’s what those holding or running for public office closer to home have said so far.

Senator Tammy Baldwin (D)

“A militant Supreme Court majority overturned Roe and nearly 50 years of precedent, stripping away the constitutional rights of American women to make their own personal choices about their bodies, health, and families. The Republicans brought women back to Wisconsin in 1849 and it is the Republicans who want to keep us there by arguing that politicians are interfering in the freedoms of women who will now have fewer rights than their mothers and grandmothers had had for decades. I ask people to join this fight with their voices and their votes because we will not be taken back, we will move forward.

Senator Ron Johnson (right)

“Today is a victory for life and for those who fought for decades to protect the unborn child. For nearly fifty years, the ruling of nine unelected judges prevented the formation of a democratic consensus on the profound moral issue of abortion. This ruling will now allow that democratic process to take place in every state to determine when society has a responsibility to protect life. Hopefully, the debate will be conducted with sincerity, compassion and respect for the wide range of people’s opinions.

Derrick Van Orden (R) Candidate for 3rd Congressional District

“I believe every child is a child of God, and today’s decision is a major milestone for the sanctity of life.”

Congressman Ron Kind (D) 3rd Congressional District

“For nearly half a century, women have been able to make personal decisions about their reproductive health, their lives and their futures without government interference. The removal of this fundamental right will have devastating consequences for women and families across the country. Today’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade means millions of women will live with fewer freedoms than their mothers and grandmothers, and puts every American’s right to privacy on shaky ground. We cannot go back. Last year I voted to codify the rights protected by Roe v. Wade and the Senate must act urgently to do the same.

Rep. Jill Billings (D) 95th Assembly District

“Conservative hardliners on the United States Supreme Court today overturned the 50-year-old precedent of Roe v. Wade, leading to the restriction of the right to bodily autonomy for more than 50% of Americans. Action by this Court will not reduce the number of abortions that occur in Wisconsin and our country, but rather will make abortion more difficult to access and less safe. The decision if and when to start a family is one of the most personal decisions one can make. Politicians and Supreme Court Justices have no place in these personal health care decisions. It is vital that we end Wisconsin’s archaic 1849 criminal abortion ban. It is absolutely shameful that Republican lawmakers on Wednesday ignored the will of the people of Wisconsin and snubbed the governor’s special session on reproductive freedom. Their inaction, coupled with today’s decision by the United States Supreme Court, will have serious and lasting consequences for the health and freedom of our friends, families, neighbors and communities. I will not stop fighting until the right to access comprehensive reproductive health care in Wisconsin is restored.

Patrick Testin (R) 24th Senate District

“After nearly fifty years and more than 63 million lives lost to abortion, the United States Supreme Court has finally turned the page on a sad chapter in American history. Abortion is not health care; it is not birth control. It is the taking of a human life. I will do my part to ensure that Wisconsin values ​​and affirms life at all stages.

The man of God asked why it remained difficult to arrest those behind the killings in churches and other areas.

Diarmai Ó Cadhla, 61, was dragged to Cork District Court on Friday following an incident involving the survey vessel HMS Enterprise.

The 61-year-old former People’s Convention adviser was filmed trying to climb the Enterprise’s gangway before being stopped by armed sailors guarding the ship, in footage shared on social networks.

During the seven-minute recording, Mr Ó Cadhla, of Upper Beaumont Drive, Ballintemple, Cork, is seen taunting sailors from the dock.

He said: “Hello people here from Sunny Cork City where [there is] a terrible offensive image here. What we see is a NATO and British warship.

“You see here soldiers armed with automatic weapons… Now anyone who has ever been in the armed forces will know that you only carry a weapon if there is a conceivable position or context in which you would discharge the weapon and the would use.

“So I wonder what are the conditions that would allow these armed soldiers to unload their weapons here in the middle of the sovereign territory of a state to which they do not belong and do not serve.”

Diarmaid Ó Cadhla, centre, is led off the gangway of HMS Enterprise by a Guards police officer in Cork, Ireland.

Speaking into a microphone as a cameraman filmed him, Mr Ó Cadhla is then seen approaching HMS Enterprise as one of the sailors guarding the ship smiles, waves and waves ” thumb up”.

But the former adviser then climbs onto the bridge and begins to climb back towards the ship.

Sailors can be seen ordering the men to “stop” and “get off” before one of them says, “Stop right there, now.”

Sailors on board HMS Enterprise have been pictured trying to stop a former politician from trying to gain unauthorized access to the ship while it was docked in Ireland.

“You are in our country my friend”, we hear Mr. Ó Cadhla shout to the sailors. — You are moored at our quay. You should get out of here.

Eventually, the men are brought back to the bridge by the local Garda police. A report of the irish examiner claims that Mr Cadhla was later arrested after he refused to comply with the garda’s order to leave the area peacefully.

A former lieutenant commander and Gosport naval expert has since praised the cold response from the crew of HMS Enterprise.

Mike Critchley said: “Keeping a ship safe is a top priority. As for the port, security within the confines of Portsmouth Naval Base is much less secure as you already have the MoD police there.

Sailors on board HMS Enterprise have been pictured trying to stop a former politician from trying to gain unauthorized access to the ship while it was docked in Ireland.

“But if you go to a commercial port like Liverpool or Cork, you naturally have the added security.”

He added: “Looks like the sailors did fine, no one boarded the ship or entered the captain’s cabin.”

The Ministry of Defense said Royal Navy ships regularly have armed sentries alongside to ensure the safety of military personnel.

A Royal Navy spokesperson added: ‘HMS Enterprise was on a routine visit to Cork. There was no security breach.

HMS Enterprise’s main role is to carry out oceanographic and hydrographic surveys – examining and mapping the seabed.

The Plymouth-based ship can also serve as a “mother ship” for minehunters.

On Wednesday, council member Erik Bottcher suggested relocating Madison Square Garden in an effort to improve the underground transit system at Penn Station.

“We need a new Penn Station, but we’ll never have the world-class trainroom we deserve as long as Madison Square Garden sits on it,” said the politics tweeted. “No serious effort has ever been made to identify alternative locations for MSG. It has to happen.

The council representative’s comments come as New York struggles to upgrade the 34th Street train station, despite years of attempts and the successful launch of Moynihan Train Hall, which sits across from the arena, and started operating fully last year.

The state also solicited bids from contractors to work on a project $7 billion overhaul of Penn Station, the governor announced earlier this month. This plan does not include any major changes to the garden.

City Hall, led by Mayor Eric Adams, declined to comment on Bottcher’s tweet. The governor’s office did not respond to a request for comment.

For more coverage from Erik Bottcher and Madison Square Garden, visit amNY.com.

Governor Hochul, who took office after the former state executive Andrew Cuomo resigned last year amid allegations of sexual harassment, and is seeks to win the governorship in 2022, may not want to deal with the construction of another potential stadium, after leading the state to shell out funds for a A $1.4 billion stadium for the hometown Buffalo Bills.

Currently home to the Knicks and Rangers, Madison Square Garden was built in 1964, when railroad mogul Graham-Paige commissioned the building to increase rail traffic to the Big Apple.

After years of debating the location of the future arena, the city finally landed at the corner of 34th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues.

Before the pandemic, in 2019, more than 600,000 passengers commuted through Penn Station every working day. During this time, the arena has developed a reputation as a historic stadium for basketball and hockey, with countless memorable moments inside the Midtown facility.

Bottcher, who alluded to residents’ complaints about noise and foot traffic, did not specify where MSG might be moved, but advocates have long suggested Hudson Yards as a possible destination for a professional sports team. Mayor Michael Bloomberg-era plan wanted build a football stadium in the neighborhood along the Hudson River (which could have brought the New York Jets in the five boroughsfrom their current home in New Jersey).

That plan was shot down prematurely by neighborhood advocates, who questioned the idea of ​​bringing a new stadium (and accompanying traffic) to Midtown.

After that plan fell through, city officials turned to redeveloping the land for housing – and the area is now home to thousands of people, where a plan to rezone the city’s 28 acres has led to a boom in apartment building in the area.

The Bombay HC has expressed disappointment with authorities over FIRs filed against a Nashik student, Nikhil Bhamre, 21, for a “frivolous” case allegedly tweeting against a former state politician.

The bench, which was hearing his motion in brief seeking the quashing of the FIRs against him, questioned how the social media posts could form the basis of the FIRs.

“There are hundreds and thousands of tweets every day. Are you going to read every tweet? We don’t want FIRs like these…Unheard of…a student being detained like this,” he said. he observed, adding that “nobody” was named. on a page containing a tweet from Bhamre.

“If you start taking actions like this, you end up damaging the name of the person who received the second highest civilian honor – a Padma Vibhushan. Even the towering personality (indicating Sharad Pawar but not taking his name ) won’t like a student to be kept in jail. We don’t want the towering personality’s reputation to deteriorate,” the bench said.

Attorney General Aruna Pai said she would “take instructions” from police authorities and the Home Ministry after the court asked her position on not opposing Bhamre’s release.

Police had prepared a case chart to show that there were six registered criminal cases against Bhamre and one alleged prior, TOI reported. Bhamre’s lawyer, Anirudh Ganu, said he would request an urgent hearing on Wednesday or at an earlier date this week.

Actor Ketaki Chitale, whose motion to quash was adjourned until Wednesday, faces more than 20 FIRs and four unacknowledged cases on similar charges and has also been behind bars for a month.

Director of the UWI School of Nursing, Dr Oscar Noel Ocho, speaks at the ceremony commemorating the 41st anniversary of the death of TT’s first Premier, Dr Eric Williams, at Harris Promenade, San Fernando, Sunday. -Marvin Hamilton

The head of the School of Nursing at the University of the West Indies said the language used by many local politicians fell woefully short of the high standards set by TT’s first premier, Dr Eric Williams.

Dr Oscar Noel Ocho was speaking at a ceremony at Harris Promenade, San Fernando to mark the 41st anniversary of Williams’ death. Williams died on March 29, 1981.

Ocho said Williams was known for his visionary and unprecedented political speech which remains unparalleled and unmatched to this day.

“There is a difference between the use of political language as theater and political language as philosophy.”

He felt that Williams knew the difference, and an objective analysis of statements he made during his political career reflected that.

Ocho lamented that since Williams’ death, too many politicians from many different parties can only say politically expedient things rather than making statements to influence meaningful change.

He observed that two former prime ministers had made statements such as “politics has its own morality” and “it may not be ethical, but it’s not illegal”.

Deplorable and divisive political language is also found among politicians who seek to incite certain segments of the population and tend to try to forge alliances to that end, he said.

Ocho claimed that these politicians were making statements intended to mislead people and lay the groundwork for continued cronyism.

While Williams achieved many accomplishments in her lifetime, Ocho felt that the failure of Caribbean integration was perhaps Williams’ greatest regret. He referenced Williams’ famous “one in ten leaves nothing” statement about the collapse of the West Indies Federation in 1958.

Ocho said the reasons Williams articulated at the time for the federation’s collapse remain relevant today.

“Caricom cannot operate like a well-oiled machine.”

Ocho described the PNM as one of Williams’ most enduring legacies, surviving and surpassing all political rivals in whatever form they took since 1956.

He said the party’s continued resilience is evident after huge election defeats in 1986 (33-3) and 2010 (29-12). The balisier of the PNM was chosen by chance.

“The balisier flower or heliconia thrives in the sun and resists pressure.”

Ocho disagreed with the idea that Williams was a maximum leader. When a new institution begins life, it needs a strong leader to chart the way forward. After Williams’ death, Ocho said the PNM had benefited from having leaders such as Patrick Manning and Dr. Keith Rowley at the helm.

“He came at a time when we needed him.”
