Powerful Murdoch Media Dumps On Trump

Thu, November 10, 2022…..YAHOO NEWS

The powerful media empire of conservative billionaire Rupert Murdoch appeared to turn its back Thursday on Donald Trump, labeling the former US president a “loser” who shows “increasingly poor judgement” after the midterm elections. 
Just days before he is expected to announce his 2024 White House candidacy, the Wall Street Journal, the flagship of Murdoch’s News Corp, declared in an editorial that “Trump Is the Republican Party’s Biggest Loser,” pointing to the party’s disappointing performance in Tuesday’s midterms.
Trump later Friday hit back at Murdoch, appearing to relish a scuffle, accusing News Corp media of falling in line to back a potential Republican rival of Trump for the 2024 presidential nomination, a choice he said News Corp would rue.The cover of News Corp’s tabloid New York Post depicted Trump on a precarious wall as “Trumpty Dumpty” who “had a great fall” in the vote, blaming him for the failure of Republicans to sweep past Democratic rivals in the battle for control of Congress and governors’ mansions.
And at the hugely influential Fox News television network, praise was thick for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, seen as Trump’s top rival for the party’s 2024 nomination.“The biggest winner of the midterm elections was without a doubt Governor Ron DeSantis, whose landslide victory in the state of Florida was breathtaking,” wrote Fox columnist Liz Peek.
“The biggest loser? Donald Trump,” she said.
But even the network’s biggest star, talk-show host Tucker Carlson, assailed the Republican establishment for Tuesday’s ballot box failures and at least partly blamed the ex-president.“Many others are saying that Donald Trump is the reason Republicans didn’t do as well as they thought they would. 

DeSantis May Face Renewed Pressure To Take On Trump

BY BRETT SAMUELS – 11/10/22

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) is expected to come under increasing pressure to run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2024 after rolling to a reelection victory Tuesday on a night when much of the GOP was licking its wounds.   

 Chants of “two more years” rang out at his victory rally late Tuesday, a nod to his status as the rising GOP national star and the one Republican who many believe could conquer former President Trump in a primary fight.   

Many Republicans also see DeSantis as a stronger general election candidate than Trump, whether that contest is against President Biden or some other Democrat. 

“DeSantis made a convincing case that he, rather than Trump, gives Republicans the best chance to defeat Biden (or some other Democrat) in 2024,” Scott Jennings, a former adviser to former President George W. Bush and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), wrote in a CNN op-ed on Wednesday.  

In coasting to victory in Florida, DeSantis flipped traditionally Democratic Miami-Dade County en route to a 20-point win.  

Trump, meanwhile, saw Mehmet Oz (R) lose in Pennsylvania’s Senate race after the former president helped carry him across the finish line in a competitive primary earlier this year. Trump-backed gubernatorial candidates in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin lost their races, and high-profile Trump endorsees in Arizona and Georgia were locked in close races. 

One GOP strategist who worked on midterm races this cycle said DeSantis “must run” in 2024, saying he has a good argument based on his four years as governor and sweeping reelection win. 

Trump is poised to announce his own bid for the White House next week, but he may enter that contest in a more vulnerable position than before, given DeSantis’s growing muscle.  

The cover of the right-leaning New York Post on Wednesday read: “DEFUTURE: Young GOP star romps to victory in Florida.”  

Fox News carried DeSantis’s victory speech live, covered the governor’s win extensively on Wednesday and published an op-ed on Wednesday titled “Ron DeSantis is the new Republican Party leader.” 

Tuesday was a mixed night at best for “MAGA” Republicans, while more establishment GOP figures like New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu and Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp easily won reelection — despite drawing Trump’s ire at times. Senate candidates in those states who were backed by Trump ran several points behind the governors atop the ticket. 

Republican operatives and commentators who are eager to move past Trump have warned against a repeat scenario of 2016, when a large field of Republican candidates failed to quickly coalesce behind a single alternative and allowed Trump to win the nomination. 

In DeSantis, they may have found their preferred candidate to rally behind, even as the likes of former Vice President Mike Pence, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin loom as potential alternatives. 

“I would say it’s not just as simple as to say now it clearly is DeSantis,” said Doug Heye, a former Republican National Committee spokesperson. “DeSantis had a great night, no doubt about it. So did [Ohio Gov.] Mike DeWine. This should give any Republican who’s looking at [2024] a reason to very seriously consider jumping in.” 

Erick Erickson, a conservative radio host based in Georgia, said Wednesday there is an opening for donors to rally around another GOP candidate for 2024. 

“Small-dollar donors are ripe for a DeSantis play,” Erickson said. 

DeSantis has not publicly discussed any potential presidential bid, though during a debate last month he dodged questions about whether he would commit to serving his full term as governor. 

Trump, meanwhile, has made no secret of his plans to seek another term in the White House. He repeatedly teased a third campaign during rallies in the closing stretch of the midterms and set an announcement for Tuesday at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, where he is expected to officially launch his 2024 bid. 

But the former president’s plans to ride a red wave to consolidate his hold on the GOP and clear the primary field may now face a setback. 

In Tuesday night’s results, some Republicans saw a clear mandate for the party to move on from Trump, who was a prominent fixture on the campaign trail in the last week and whose talk of a possible 2024 bid grabbed headlines days before Election Day. 

“Last night was the biggest indicator that Donald Trump should not be the Republican nominee in 2024. He cost the GOP winnable seats by boosting poor quality candidates,” Sarah Matthews, a former Trump press aide who resigned over the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the Capitol, tweeted Wednesday. 

Former Trump press secretary Kayleigh McEnany went as far as to suggest the former president should delay his announcement until after a Georgia runoff in December that could determine control of the Senate. 

Pressed on whether Trump should campaign in the state for Herschel Walker, who ran at the former president’s urging, McEnany demurred. 

“I think we’ve got to make strategic calculations,” she said. “Gov. DeSantis, I think he should be welcome to the state, given what happened last night. You’ve got to look at the realities on the ground.”

Act Accordingly’: Conservative ‘Washington Examiner’ Calls on GOP to Dump Trump Citing His ‘Chaos and Dishonor’

The conservative Washington Examiner called on the Republican Party to dump former President Donald Trump during an autopsy of Tuesday’s disastrous midterms.

While there are still votes to be counted, an expected “red wave” never made its way to shore. As a result, a conservative movement in disarray is seeking answers and new leadership. The Examiner‘s editorial team pointed to the data and blamed the party’s shortcomings on Trump.

The conservative Washington Examiner called on the Republican Party to dump former President Donald Trump during an autopsy of Tuesday’s disastrous midterms.

While there are still votes to be counted, an expected “red wave” never made its way to shore. As a result, a conservative movement in disarray is seeking answers and new leadership. The Examiner‘s editorial team pointed to the data and blamed the party’s shortcomings on Trump.

On Wednesday, the outlet noted Trump’s hand-picked candidates flopped in Georgia, Pennsylvania, and elsewhere. Herschel Walker is headed to a runoff in Georgia against incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA), but Mehmet Ozlost his race to keep the seat of Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA).

Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman will now represent the commonwealth in the Senate for the next six years, in spite of suffering from a stroke in May.

In New Hampshire, Republican Governor Chris Sununu easily fended off his Democratic challenger Tom Sherman. Trump-backed candidate Don Bolducwas not competitive in his race against incumbent Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-NH).

Republican Governors Ron DeSantis and Brian Kemp also won by large margins in their respective races in Florida and Georgia – all while separating themselves from Trump (neither candidate was endorsed by Trump).

The Examiner concluded the GOP’s failure to take advantage of Democratic weaknesses should elicit some soul-searching:

This is his fault. Without Trump to run against, Biden and the Democrats would probably have been roundly rebuked by voters. According to the exit poll — the same one that showed 74% of voters either “dissatisfied” or “angry” about the direction of the country — the only person more disliked than Biden was Trump.

“These midterm elections have made it crystal clear that voters want to move past the chaos and dishonor of the 45th president,” the Examiner concluded. “They want the security and sanity that a competent and effective leader can provide. The Republican Party needs to recognize that, too, and act accordingly.”

Walmart vs. The Morons (NOT A JOKE)

The explanation for this is at the bottom at the end. 

1. Americans spend $36,000,000 at Wal-Mart Every hour of every day.

2. This works out to $20,928 profit every minute!

3. Wal-Mart will sell more from January 1 to St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) than Target sells all year.

4. Wal-Mart is bigger than Home Depot + Kroger + Target +Sears + Costco + K-Mart combined.

5. Wal-Mart employs 1.6 million people, is the world’s largest private employer, and most speak English.

6. Wal-Mart is the largest company in the history of the world.

7. Wal-Mart now sells more food than Kroger and Safeway combined, and keep in mind they did this in only fifteen years.

8. During this same period, 31 big supermarket chains sought bankruptcy.

9. Wal-Mart now sells more food than any other store in the world.

10. Wal-Mart has approx 3,900 stores in the USA of which 1,906 are Super Centers; this is 1,000 more than it had five years ago.

11. This year 7.2 billion different purchasing experiences will occur at Wal-Mart stores. (Earth’s population is approximately 6.5 Billion.)

12. 90% of all Americans live within fifteen miles of a Wal-Mart.

You may think that I am complaining, but I am really laying the groundwork for suggesting that MAYBE we should hire the guys who run Wal-Mart to fix the U.S. economy.

This should be read and understood by all Americans. Democrats, Republicans, Independents, EVERYONE!!

To all 435 voting members of congress and the 100 members of the US Senate

The majority of you are corrupt morons!

Consider your record and reflect on your performance:a..

The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775.

You have had 246 years to get it right and it is broke.

Stamps cost .58 cents and they may be going up on November 10th to .60 cents

b.. Social Security was established in 1935.

You have had 86 years to get it right and it is broke.

c.. Fannie Mae was established in 1938.

You have had 71 years to get it right and it is broke.

d.. The War on Poverty started in 1964.

You have had 57 years to get it right; it never went anywhere and you stole from our Social Security Fund.  $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to “the poor” and you want more!

e.. Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965.

You have had 56 years to get it right and they are broke.

f. Freddie Mac was established in 1970.

You have had 51 years to get it right and it is broke.

g.. The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil.  It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before.

You had 44 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.

h. Currently, gasoline is at a record all time high and inflation is the highest it’s been in 40 years!

You have FAILED in every “government service” you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars.

We have a President that had 36 years of experience as a U.S. senator and 8 years as Vice- President.  A President that promised to “Build Back Better”, our current President is the epitome of a corrupt career politician!  We elected an immoral, unethical freeloader that never had a plan except to live on the public dole, a scoundrel who bends the way the political winds blow who can’t even finish a sentence without losing his train of thought.  Not that he ever had an original thought!

AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN ANYTHING??

Folks, keep this circulating.  Maybe it will end up in the emails of some of our ‘duly elected’ (they never read anything) but maybe their staff will clue them in on how Americans feel.  If you don’t think we need to drain the swamp then you just don’t plain think!

AND please try to understand what’s wrong. 

We have lost our minds to corrupt career politicians and “Political Correctness”! Someone please tell me what the HELL’s wrong with the people that run this country!  We are begging Venezuela for oil.  We’re “broke” & can’t help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless etc.,???????????

In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti , Chile, and Turkey. We are funding the world on climate change! And now NATO, Afghanistan, the Ukraine and Pakistan…previous home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!! Our retired seniors living on a ‘fixed income’ receive no aid as our southern borders are overrun by illegals

AMERICA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without ‘needed’ meds, and mentally ill without treatment -etc., etc. We can’t take proper care of our citizens. However, Illegals get free everything!!! They are put up into hotels fed meal health care and cash.  Imagine if the *Federal GOVERNMENT* gave ‘US’ the same support they give to illegals and other countries.

The difference between genius and stupid is that genius has its limits. Albert Einstein

Democratic Senator Calls Out Trump For Not Condemning Paul Pelosi Attack

WHILE ALL DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS HAVE REACHED OUT TO CONDEMN THE ATTACK ON PAUL PELOSI TRUMP AS USUAL ONLY THINKS ABOUT HIMSELF👎👎👎👎…….PapaMike

JULIA MUELLER – 10/30/22

Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) on Sunday called out former President Trump for his silence on the recent attack against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) husband, Paul Pelosi. 

“President Biden and Democrats have stood behind law enforcement and strengthening protections for those in public life. That’s what I think we should be focusing on in this moment, when leaders of both parties — but so far not President Trump — have decried the attack on Paul Pelosi,” Coons said in an interview with host Shannon Bream on “Fox News Sunday.” 

Paul Pelosi on Friday was violently assaulted in the family’s California home, sparking outrage and concern over heightening political violence. The GOP response to the attack on Paul Pelosi has varied, and former President Trump has been notably silent. 

“I think all of us in the wake of this attack on Paul Pelosi need to say that we are going to stop demonizing folks, because I think those kinds of- the sort of rhetoric that we’ve heard in too many ways in too many places can lead to violence by a small number of Americans who think that, when we describe our political opponents as our enemies, we’re calling for them to be attacked,” Coons said.   

In the wake of the attack against the House Speaker’s husband, Democrats have called out their Republican counterparts for what they see as violent rhetoric with their calls to oust Pelosi or take congressional control back from Democrats.

Coons talked about his bipartisan work Republican Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) to advance legislation expanding police protections for Supreme Court Justices after a threat was made against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh earlier this year.

Trump Bragged About New US Nuclear Weapons, Woodward Tape Shows


Trump told Washington Post reporter: ‘We have stuff that Putin and Xi have never heard about before

 


In a taped conversation with Bob Woodward, Donald Trump boasted about US nuclear weapons development.

 
Trump 2024 campaign seeks to recruit man who smeared John Kerry – reports

“I have built a weapon system that nobody’s ever had in this country before,” the then president told the veteran Washington Post reporter. “We have stuff that you haven’t even seen or heard about. We have stuff that Putin and Xi have never heard about before.”

The recording aired on CNN on Tuesday, the day Woodward published The Trump Tapes, an audio book of 20 interviews carried out as Woodward wrote three bestsellers on the Trump presidency, Fear, Rage and Peril (the last co-written with Robert Costa).

Woodward said he looked into Trump’s claim and was told by an official it was true.

“Xi [Jinping] and [Vladimir] Putin would not know about” the weapons system, Woodward said. “But why is Trump bragging about it?”

Trump’s cavalier attitude to nuclear issues has landed him in hot water elsewhere. Documents dealing with nuclear weapons policy were reportedly among classified material recovered from Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s Florida home, by the FBI in August.

That is just one front on which Trump remains in legal jeopardy, others including his incitement of the January 6 insurrection, his attempts to overturn the 2020 election, his business affairs and a defamation suit from a writer who says Trump raped her.

Trump denies wrongdoing and maintains a lead in polls concerning the Republican presidential nomination. He is reportedlytrying to appoint senior campaign aides, including, according to the Post, the Republican operative behind the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth attacks on John Kerry 20 years ago.

Woodward, 79, made his name half a century ago, during the Watergate scandal which forced Richard Nixon from office. Nixon resigned when threatened with impeachment. Trump was impeached twice but acquitted by Senate Republicans.

On CNN, Woodward said: “I once said to Trump, because he was kind of asking, ‘What do you think the president’s job is?’ And I said, it is to ascertain the next stage of good for a majority of people in the country, not one party or a bunch of interest groups, and then develop a comprehensive plan and execute it.

 

“And he said: ‘Oh, that’s good. That’s great.’ Never did he do this.”

 
Bob Woodward to publish Trump interviews detailing his ‘effort to destroy democracy’

Trump “doesn’t understand democracy”, Woodward said, adding: “The United States was one of the rare countries formed on an idea. And that idea is democracy.

“Trump doesn’t understand that the January 6 committee has proven that. He does not understand that he’s got to take care of the people. He’s got to give them advice, warning. And he didn’t do this.”

CNN also played a clip of Woodward asking Trump, in summer 2020, if the Covid pandemic had made him say to himself, “Ah, this is the leadership test of a lifetime?”

Trump answered emphatically: “No.”

Woodward said: “He’s dismissing any responsibility he has. And that no is like a thunderclap: ‘I’m walking away from this.’”

New York AG Wants To Bar Trump From Moving Assets Amid Civil Fraud Lawsuit

THE PICTURE BELOW WAS POSTED BY PAPA MIKE AND NOT BY THE SOURCE OF THIS ARTICLE……PM

By Herb Scribner

The New York Attorney General’s Office has asked a judge to stop formerPresident Trump from moving his business assets to a new holding company amid a pending civil lawsuit.

Why it matters: The AG’s office has alleged Trump and the Trump Organization are looking to avoid accountability in the lawsuit, as the former president faces other legal challenges tied to his time in office, his business and the 2020 election.

State of play: The civil lawsuit from Letitia James’ office filed in September accuses Trump, three of his children and the Trump Organization of widespread fraud.

  • James’ office said the Trump Organization registered a new entity called “Trump Organization II LLC” on the same day that the AG filed the lawsuit.
  • James’ office alleged Thursday that Trump’s business hasn’t guaranteed it will not move assets out of state to “evade legal accountability.”

What she’s saying: “Since we filed this sweeping lawsuit last month, Donald Trump and the Trump Organization have continued those same fraudulent practices and taken measures to evade responsibility,” James said in a statement. “Today, we are seeking an immediate stop to these actions because Mr. Trump should not get to play by different rules.”

  • “We will not allow Donald Trump and the Trump Organization to continue this fraud or evade accountability,” James said on Twitter. “No one is above the law.”

Zoom in: The attorney general’s office also asked for an independent party to monitor “any new financial disclosures made to banks and insurers to ensure they are not fraudulent” from Trump and the organization, James said on Twitter.

  • The office said it has requested permission to serve former President Trump and Eric Trump through electronic means as “both defendants and their counsels have refused to accept service of the complaints for almost a month.”
  • James’ office said that the case should “proceed quickly to final resolution” and requested a trial date in early October 2023.

The other side: Per the court filing, Trump’s legal team offered to provide “assurance” and “reasonable advance notice” on James’ concerns, but gave no specifics on how to implement the assurances or how to enforce them.

  • Trump’s counsel did not respond to the proposed trial date, according to the filing.
  • Trump’s legal team did not immediately respond to Axios’ request for comment.

James’ lawsuit included multiple allegations of fraud against Trump, saying the former president “falsely inflated his net worth by billions of dollars.”

  • The lawsuit alleges that Trump and the Trump Organization created over 200 “false and misleading valuations of assets on his annual Statements of Financial Condition to defraud financial institutions” from 2011 to 2021,according to her office.
  • James is seeking to ban Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump — who are all named in the lawsuit — from serving as an officer or directors of a business register in New York state.

The big picture: Trump is under multiple investigations — from officials in Georgia over the 2020 election, in Manhattan over financial matters and at the Department of Justice over his handling of government records — as he remains a leading potential 2024 presidential candidate.
