Gavin?! Gavin Newsome as a potential candidate? After what he's done to Cali, you'd want to bring THAT... to the REST OF THE COUNTRY?!

No way man. No way...

PS: I've been working on this article for sometime now and just pushed it out! Comparing Newsome's CA to DeSantis's FL: https://unorthodoxy.substack.com/p/why-florida-is-better-than-california

You really have to hate the United States of America, be dumb as a rock, or completely corrupt to consider a Biden vote. Whitmer and Newsome as well.

Sure Trump sucks as a person, but if you put his policies on a sheet of paper with Obama’s name at the top, everyone would have thrived and cheered our collective success.

Plus, yes mean tweets and calling corrupt liars liars in a brazen way is not classy... but they are lairs. And 90% of what we were all supposed to hate even more and be terrified by about Trump now all turn out to be fake setups by the democrats. So maybe what Trump lacks in tact, he gets a bit of credit/vindication for being right about?

TDS is real. Cooler heads must prevail. Please people, don’t look such blatant corruption and incompetence in the face and choose it over a fabricated boogie man bag of goods that you have been sold... All just so that you can stay in the good graces of the members of your Chardonnay Book Club who haven’t squeezed out an independent thought (or wrestled with consequences of their actions) in years.

I got to "...and that very strange, seemingly racist Covid thing" and stopped reading. A study performed on 81,000 human genomes is seemingly racist now? Lazy and shameful to reiterate that lie.

“The Hunter Biden probe could turn up something really devastating (consider Friday’s announcement that the attorney general is appointing a special counsel to probe deeper into Hunter’s various shenanigans)”

———————————————————-

I’m not trying to be rude, but you honestly have to be a straight-up imbecile if you think that is what the Special Counsel is going to do.

This scumbag Weiss just ran out the statute of limitations on all of the tax evasion and money laundering crimes from Ukraine by pretending it takes FIVE YEARS to investigate a gun crime that he has ON VIDEO. He’s just there to block Republicans from getting *personal* bank records because that’s where the final irrefutable proof of Joe Biden’s criminality is.

You do not have to vote for Republicans. That’s fine. I hate them also. But if you vote for a Democrat, at this point, you are a total scumbag.

Democrats need to take control of their own party. If Joe Biden is on the ballot, it will be because elites have manipulated it yet again. I still don’t understand how he was the candidate in 2020. If he’s the candidate in 2024 then it will be impossible to believe that we even need a president. He certainly can’t function as one.

Pick any Democrat in that parole game and I wouldn’t vote for him or her. They only candidate anywhere that wants to really bring us back and has ideas about how to do it, is Vivek Ramaswamy. So far, he has my vote.

“President Biden remains a healthy, vigorous, 80-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the presidency,” the White House physician, Kevin O’Connor, said in February.

The problem isn't Biden. Oh sure Biden's a problem because he's a corrupt, senile imbecile, doing face plants and babbling incoherently on a regular basis when he isn't having his dwarfish Beria sicc'ing the Stasi on some political opponent or ordinary American fed up with this crap. No, the problem is Democrats and their entire corrupt, leftist party of wolves in sheep clothing There isn't one of them who is honest, genuine or sane. They promise to be "different" and "independent" and then, once elected vote their lunatic party line. The entire party is either insane or genuinely evil. And the fact that they peddle the patent bullshit that Biden's healthy sane or honest proves this beyond peradventure.

The FP should issue an apology and retraction for the “And that very strange, seemingly racist Covid thing”. Anyone who looked into that lie for more than two seconds knows that RFK Jr. was in no way being racist unless of course science is now racist which would give us one more accusation to hurl at Fauci but I’d rather live in the truth which is that RFK Jr. is by no means a racist.

"Lis Smith, the savvy Democratic strategist who advised Pete Buttigieg’s 2020 presidential campaign, told The Free Press in an email." - Man, you gotta love the irony of using the term "savvy" in the same sentence as Pete Buttigieg. What was Ms. Smith's "strategy" to get him elected as president? Convince voters that he is not an incompetent grifter that should be "given a chance" to lead? Not sure why we should listen to her if her best judgement was to work with Mayor Pete.

This was a pretty weak look at the potential Dem line up :/. Largely glossing over anything negative for Newsom or Biden. Not saying you have to write a hit piece but a little objectivity would be great. Maybe that’s why the dems are serving up terrible candidates - it’s really against the rules to deviate from the talking points you’re provided.

"And then there’s the governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer, the Democrat that most influential, wealthy Democrats would actually love to see run for president." - Man, she actually scares me just to look at her. It's always the eyes, and she has those psychotic, megalomaniacal eyes and that soulless blank stare accentuated with that grin that seems like she is thinking about some kind of torture. No, hell no.

Once again, Savodnik proves he’s the least thoughtful author at the Free Press. He contributes nothing but word count.

None of these are good options with the exception of Manchin. I believe him to be the only Democrat mentioned that I would vote for. And of course, that would be after every Republican candidate dropped out. Bring on Vivek 2024!

Anyone who says the economy is great right now hasn’t been in a grocery store in 3 years. Conservatives don’t have to say people’s pay is buying less. People know it! Rich DC pundits telling us the economy is great when we can’t afford milk anymore will not convince us.

No. The headline has this backwards. When a voter thinks about the way Biden’s and Garland’s Justice Department and FBI are persecuting Donald Trump, thereby interfering in the next election; when a voter sees the consequences of having an open border and feels the consequences of Biden’s disastrous, free-spending economic policies; when a voter learns the full, damning details of Biden’s criminally taking bribes from foreign companies and governments; when a voter realizes the dangers of allowing Iran to build a nuclear bomb, of allowing China’s unimpeded hegemony in Asian waters, of backing Palestinian terrorists instead of Israel, of depleting our military in multiple ways; when a voter comes to his/her senses vis-a-vis the inanity of “woke” policies and the foolish elimination of fossil fuel sources; when a voter thinks about the obvious mental deterioration of Joe Biden, and reflects on the fact that he counts our withdrawal from Afghanistan as a success; and when the voter scans the other likely Democrat candidates, such as Newsom and Harris, and realizes that their governing would be every bit as bad; then the real question comes to the fore: “Are you going to make me vote for Donald Trump?” - who, whatever his personal flaws, advocates policies that actually benefit this great country.

If you vote for Joe Biden or Gavin Newsome, may you be forced to house migrants in your spare room like British soldiers in the revolution and may you enjoy the bugs your government allows you eat.
