DeSantis just cost Biden the midterms

Axios had bad news this morning for Democrats: abortion won't save you this year because Ron DeSantis just made illegal aliens the campaign issue.

The outlet said, "Americans' Google searches and story interactions around crime and immigration are eclipsing abortion and the FBI search of Mar-a-Lago, according to the Axios midterms dashboard powered by Google Trends, as well as new data from NewsWhip."

Suddenly an issue that had failed to ignite public interest became a bonfire when DeSantis flew 50 illegal aliens to Martha's Vineyard, an enclave of rich white liberals who largely were to the manor born. Their island was a sanctuary to illegal aliens -- until illegal aliens arrived.

Martha's Vineyard dropped the façade and called in the National Guard. The Guard shipped the illegals to a military base which is also a Superfund site.

Thus, DeSantis not only made illegal aliens an issue but he succeeded in highlighting liberal hypocrisy. Liberals don't want those people in their neighborhoods except to clean their toilets and mow their lawns.

Timing is everything in comedy and politics.

Axios said, "Why it matters: With elections seven weeks away, some topics more likely to favor Democrats have been losing ground to those that may favor Republicans."

The site also said, "searches related to immigration and the border vaulted into the top 10 last week, as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis grabbed national attention by flying asylum seekers to Martha's Vineyard."

Democrats are spooked. Their open borders policy is about as popular as Putin's war.

DeSantis framed the issue as Democrat duplicity. They want illegals in your neighborhood but not theirs.

Busing illegals to Chicago, New York and Washington did not click with the public. Those are big cities and unless you live in one, no one cares. Even then, the people of those cities don't care. If they did, they would have Republican mayors.

But flying illegals to the summer home of the super elitists worked. Things are so bad for Democrats that George Soros got into the act.

Fox reported, "The activist group at the center of a class-action lawsuit against Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and other Florida officials for migrant flights to Martha’s Vineyard has received nearly $1.4 million from George Soros’ Open Society network.

"Lawyers for Civil Rights, a nonprofit immigrant advocacy group, filed the lawsuit on behalf of Alianza Americas, according to a press release Tuesday that described the latter group as "a network of migrant-led organizations supporting immigrants across the United States."

"Alianza Americas has received a total of $1,383,947 from George Soros' Open Society Foundations between 2016 and 2020, OSF's records show. 

"The grants came from three of his nonprofits: Open Society Institute, Open Society Policy Center and Foundation to Promote Open Society." 

Liberals bestowed upon DeSantis the coveted Worse Than Trump award. I can see why they are concerned. 

Forbes reported, "Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis has raised over $218 million in his reelection campaign, according to campaign financial disclosures filed Friday, seen by the Financial Times, shattering an all-time gubernatorial fundraising record and further suggesting a likely 2024 presidential run."

People who are willing to give him $218 million for re-election to governor surely will be willing to give him even more money should Trump bow out of the 2024 race.

Thus, the drones of the Fourth Estate have attacked him.

New York Times columnist Jamelle Bouie wrote on Saturday, "Well, you might say, Donald Trump is a bully, too. Yes, he is. But Donald Trump is also a lifelong celebrity with a public persona that is as much about ‘The Apprentice’ and even ‘Home Alone 2’ as it is about his political career. What’s more, Trump has the skills of a celebrity. He’s funny, he has stage presence, and he has a kind of natural charisma. He can be a bully in part because he can temper his cruelty and egoism with the performance of a clown or a showman. He can persuade an audience that he’s just kidding — that he doesn’t actually mean it.

"Ron DeSantis cannot. He may be a more competent Trump in terms of his ability to use the levers of state to amass power, but he’s also meaner and more rigid, without the soft edges and eccentricity of the actual Donald Trump."

Meanwhile, Biden just sent the FBI to Mar-a-Lago to seize presidential mementos for the National Archives. These items are so Super Duper Top Secret that the archive will make them accessible to the public. NYT won't speak out against real fascism, just the imaginary kind because the imaginary kind will not raid your publisher's home at 4 AM.

But Mar-a-Lago now is outside the public's interest. People have Martha's Vineyard on their minds. And Martha's Vineyard beached Democrat hopes in November.

  1. That’s a heck of a chart. One MAJOR concern: Democrats +6 on protecting democracy?

    Give me a break.

    And yes, we are a republic, but many of the idiot voters don’t know that.

    Not for long. The stock market will continue to collapse dramatically. The economy is always #1.
    DeSantis is a reformer. He is the darling of Fox News and is ok with McConnell. Trump will drain the swamp, not DeSantis.
    All aboard the Trump Train!

  4. Randy says: By the time 2022 voting starts, the stock market will have collapsed even further, and gas prices will have resumed their upward climb. But people can hold more than one thought concurrently. They’ll also be thinking about crime, illegal immigration, and if a parent, their kid’s education. The trick is to swamp them with bad Democrat policies… all of the above, plus grooming, COVID vax deaths, green disasters, foreign policy blunders, and more communist/ socialist/ fascist/ totalitarian policies that the administration hasn’t even thought of yet. Midterm voters need to know that, regardless of who is running or for which office, Democrats make every aspect of their lives worse.

    As far as Trump v DeSantis goes, that’s a Republican primary decision that will be made two years from now. Dems don’t get to choose the Republican nominee. By the Fall of 2024, we should all be behind “our guy,” regardless of who it is. Bashing one to promote the other two years before it matters is counterproductive.

    2. Randy, you remarked, “Dems don’t get to choose the Republican nominee.” Apparently you haven’t been focused on “jungle primaries” and “ranked choice voting.” Slowly but surely the Dems will in fact be choosing the Republican nominees too and all their names will have a “D” at the end.

    3. Randy says: Our Republic did just fine with “one person, one vote” before Dems started this “one person, 3 or 4 votes” crap. I’m hoping this problem will be addressed by the Republican Congress before the 2024 voting starts.

  7. "How Eisenhower solved illegal border crossings from Mexico". Eisenhower, one of the US best generals, was appalled by the "breakdown in law enforcement" and "relaxation in ethical standards" at the local and federal level that accompanied the surge in illegals crossing the border - then about 1 million per year.

    In 1954 appointed retired Gen. Joseph "Jumpin' Joe" Swing head of INS and deported 3 million illegals. They didn't just drop them inside the border but took them deep into Mexico to release. This stopped illegals for 10 years - until LBJ who supported the illegal influx all his career.

    History has buried this historical fact but it's recounted in a 2006 article here: https://www.csmonitor.com/2006/0706/p09s01-coop.html

    1. Randy says: I hadn’t heard of “Jumping Joe” Swing, but I’ve always said it’s ridiculous to bus illegals back to the border. Drop ’em off one day, and they’re back in the U.S. the next. INS should fly them to Cancún on a troop transport and drop them off there. Maybe they’ll decide it’s not worth spending several weeks walking back to the U.S. border, only to be caught and dropped back off in Cancún again the next day.

  8. I remember this gem from 2015: Former "Fashion Police" host Kelly Osbourne is in hot water for remarks she made on "The View" Tuesday regarding Latinos.

    During a discussion about the front-runner status of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, Osbourne said that "If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?"

    Osbourne then quickly backtracked: "No, I didn't mean it like that! Come on! I would never mean it like that! I'm not part of this argument."

    This seems to be the first time the illegal immigration issue has actually stuck to the DNC and liberal elite like glue.

    2. Graham (and the rest of the rino party), would rather be in the minority party. It's easier for him to cry "Reelect me so I can beat those darn liberals (and send me lots of money, too)" than it is to actually stand up and commit to something when he is in the majority party.
      I find Graham in particular, to be especially sleazy and far less trustworthy than a used car salesman in the bad side of town.

  20. Maybe, maybe not. I applaud DeSantis for his commonsense, but I doubt it will make a huge difference. Did Dems backdown and change their attitudes after the last set of riots over policing? No, they doubled down. Have Dems backdown from the Green New Deal even as California and other states reel from power shortages and record high fuel costs as a result of shutting down drilling? No, not one bit. Have Dems shown anyone they realize their resident in the WH is keeping the border open intentionally? Nope. So why would they suddenly change course now simply because a few elites got their panties all bunched up over a hundred illegals dropped off in their gated communities? The illegals were promptly shopped off to a location closer to us commoners right after the left was done using them for a photo-op. Democrats are not rational and they are becoming increasingly more so. They will double down on their stupidity and pretend to only see what they want to see and keep voting for more government corruption, simply because it makes them feel powerful to control others. After all, you don't have to debate anyone or sell your ideas if you have the ability to just jam them down everyone's throats with no repercussions.
