2024 election


(RepublicanWire.org) – President Joe Biden has yet to officially announce that he will be running for reelection next year but his team is already drawing up battle plans for an imminent 2024 campaign and is planning to field an army of TikTok and social media influencers to entice young voters to turn out for the octogenarian leader.

The unpopular President is going to need to energize younger Gen Z voters to reinforce demographic groups that are already solidly loyal to the Democratic Party if he is to beat back a challenge from the resurgent former President Donald J. Trump and his pro-America base which Democrats will need to do if they hope to retain control over the White House.

According to Axios, Biden “will lean on hundreds of social media ‘influencers’ who will tout Biden’s record — and soon may have their own briefing room at the White House.” The news comes as lawmakers are looking for ways to ban the Chinese-owned social media platform that is immensely popular with young people who are addicted to it.

“We’re trying to reach young people, but also moms who use different platforms to get information and climate activists and people whose main way of getting information is digital,” said Deputy White House Chief of Staff Jen O’Malley Dillon.

Among the influencers who have been recruited for the coming propaganda campaign is 20-year-old NYU student Henry Sisson whose TikTok where he shills for Democrats has over 600,000 followers.

“What Republicans don’t understand about Gen Z is that we’re here to stay and that we’re only getting more powerful,” Sisson says in one video posted to Twitter. “In 2020, President Biden won because of young voters. In 2022, Democrats expanded their majority in the Senate because of young voters. In 2023, Wisconsin now has a liberal Supreme Court because of young voters and we’re gonna do it again in 2024 and that should terrify the Republican Party.”

“We actually asked the White House, ‘When are we going to get press briefing passes?’” Sisson told Axios. “They were actually were very responsive to it.”

Team Biden has previously used social media for outreach to young people although with mixed results, one example being the much-ridiculed campaign featuring Instagram influencer Benito Skinner aka Benny Drama who played a GenZ White House intern with gender confusion issues.

The news comes as Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s malicious prosecution of the 2024 GOP frontrunner appears to have backfired by energizing Trump’s base and the regime looks to offset the former president’s momentum with TikTok being the path to winning hearts and minds.

Axios notes that Trump is dominant on social media platforms YouTube and Facebook with the regime turning to Instagram and TikTok which are preferred by the younger voters who are inexperienced and easier to bamboozle than more informed social media users

(RepublicanWire.org) – On Saturday, President Donald Trump gave an electric rally in Waco, TX where he railed on the political establishment.

At one point, he said that establishment politicians like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are bigger threats than foreign adversaries like China and Russia.

“I was asked the other day, and I took a little heat for it, they said, who’s our biggest threat? Is it China, sir? Or is it Russia? I said, no, our biggest threat are high-level politicians that work in the United States government, like Mitch McConnell, Nancy Pelosi, Schumer, Biden, Justice Department, because that’s poisoning our country,” Trump said.

At another point in his speech, he said “Either the deep state destroys America or we destroy the deep state”.

(RepublicanWire.org) – While speaking at the Kennedy Center this weekend, actor and celebrity Chris Rock dumped on Democrats and their plan to possibly indict Trump this coming week. Rock explained that any unlawful arrest would only make Trump’s case stronger and garner more support for his 2024 presidential campaign.

Rock asked the crowd, “Are you guys really going to arrest Trump?” The funny thing is, those in attendance included none other than Nancy Pelosi according to the DailyMail.

Rock continued to jab at the Dems in audience, “Do you know this is only going to make him more popular. It’s like arresting Tupac. He’s just gonna sell more records. Are you stupid?” The crowd erupted in laughter. Rock has been known for not holding back with his comical genius.

NBC News reported last week that law enforcement agencies were conducting preliminary security assessments, as well as discussing potential security plans around the Manhattan Criminal Court in case Trump is charged in connection with an alleged hush money payment to Stormy Daniels.

“We’ve all been cheated on. Don’t you wish that the person that cheated on you paid off somebody so you wouldn’t find out?,” Rock joked.

Rock isn’t the only well-known celebrity to back Trump against the Left’s attacks. This weekend, Elon Musk tweeted about the possible indictment saying, “If this happens, Trump will be re-elected in a landslide victory.”

In 2016, just before the US presidential election, it was revealed that Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, had paid $130,000 to adult film actress Stormy Daniels as part of a nondisclosure agreement (NDA). The NDA was related to an alleged encounter between Trump and Daniels that took place in 2006, when Trump was married to his current wife, Melania.

In 2018, Daniels filed a lawsuit seeking to be released from the NDA, arguing that it was invalid because Trump had not signed it. In response, Trump’s legal team argued that he was not a party to the agreement and that Daniels was already free to talk about the alleged affair. However, Trump’s lawyers also filed a motion seeking $20 million in damages from Daniels for violating the NDA.

The investigation into the alleged hush money payment continued, and in July 2019, federal prosecutors in New York announced that they had closed the investigation without bringing any charges against Trump or anyone else involved in the matter. However, the case remained in the news and it was speculated that Trump could potentially face charges if he was no longer president.

(RepublicanWire.org) – First Lady Jill Biden showed her frustration following loud calls for her husband to undergo a mental capacity test.

Many Americans, former Obama White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson, have argued that Biden is suffering from “age-related dementia” and is not “mentally fit” to serve as president.

Jill Biden shot back by saying a mental capacity test is “ridiculous.” This blatant rejection proves how out-of-touch the Biden administration is.

“We would never even discuss something like that,” Jill Biden said about internal discussions with her husband.

Jill Biden argued that her husband would never consider taking a mental capacity test. To defend him, she argued that 30 year olds couldn’t handle the physical demands like President Biden.

“How many 30-year-olds could travel to Poland, get on the train? Go nine more hours, go to Ukraine, meet with President (Volodymyr) Zelensky?” she responded rhetorically.

“So, look at the man. Look at what he’s doing. Look at what he continues to do each and every day,” she added.

A Fox News Poll conducted in late February found 77% of Americans favor requiring such tests.

83% of millennials, 84% of GenXers, and 66% of Baby Boomers support the idea.

87% of Republicans, 74% of Independents and 67% of Democrats surveyed favor the mental capacity tests.

A recent NBC poll found that only 31% of Americans believe Biden is competent and effective as president.

28% said he has the necessary mental and physical health to be president.

Biden, who is the oldest president in U.S. history at age 80, has been widely criticized for not being physically and mentally fit for the job.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Robert F. Kennedy Jr. put President Joe Biden on notice telling a New Hampshire crowd that he is considering running for president in 2024 and challenging President Biden for the Democratic nomination. He said he already spoke to his wife who is on board with Kennedy running against Biden.

“I am thinking about it yes. I have passed the biggest hurdle, that my wife has green lighted it,” Kennedy told a crowd in New Hampshire on Friday.

Kennedy warned Biden that New Hampshire’s “four electoral votes could decide the 2024 election.” “Most importantly, New Hampshire runs the most secure and transparent election in America. It should be a model for our country at a time when we need it most,” Kennedy wrote earlier about Biden and the Dems moving the primary schedule.

Kennedy is the son of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. He is the nephew of the late President John F. Kennedy.

He calls himself a lifelong Democrat. He is married to Hollywood actress Cheryl Hines.

Ted Kennedy primaried Jimmy Carter and a young Kennedy just primaried a sitting Dem Senator so this is not idle talk.

According to ABC:

In January, Kennedy sent an open letter to the DNC, imploring the committee to retain New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary status.

“Like many people, I have spent the past few years thinking deeply about the issues facing America. Our nation is at a crossroads. Next year’s election will be the most important of our lifetimes.

For more than a century, New Hampshire has been fertile ground for the strongest Democratic candidates.

Now, more than ever, it is important that the Democratic Party have a primary campaign that produces our party’s most competitive candidate,” he wrote.

New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley told ABC News that the calendar shuffle, which means the state won’t be an early focus of the party in the primary, does create “an opportunity for any number of [other] individuals to make a national name for themselves.”

“It just gives Republicans a great tool to play mischief by declaring that [Democrat] a front-runner and all sorts of other stuff that Fox News, etc., would love to do,” Buckley said.

(RepublicanWire.org) – During his Saturday night at TP USA’s Americafest in Arizona, Fox News host Tucker Carlson responded perfectly when an audience member asked which Republican candidate he would support in the 2024 primary. Carlson commended both men, but said he’s “not endorsing anybody”. He then began to praise both DeSantis and Trump for all they’ve done for the country.

“I’m not endorsing anybody. I have no idea what’s going to happen in the Republican primary,” Carlson began.

“I spend a lot of time in Florida, and I think Ron DeSantis has done an unbelievable job. I don’t know DeSantis that well, but let me put it this way, people move to Florida because he’s the governor,” he said, adding that he’s never lived in a state where “people even knew who the governor was.”

“I’m so impressed by that,” he added.

Then he began talking about Trump, saying he’s “so grateful” he ran for president and won in 2016.

“I actually love Donald Trump, as a guy,” he continued. “He’s one of the funniest people I’ve ever talked to in my life”

“I think there are plenty of things to criticize about Trump, I mean, he’s a human being,” he added. “But the idea that he’s like personally some monster, is like absurd. It’s just another lie. They always tell the opposite of the truth. Trump is totally charming and engaging and fun and interesting,” Carlson continued.

“Trump expresses himself in this way that’s like completely original. But his insights into people, are like unbelievable. Now I don’t think he’s that great at hiring, just being honest,” he said.

“There’s so much I like about Trump, and fundamentally, I agree with him. On the big things. On immigration, foreign policy, I strongly agree with him,” Carlson concluded.

Polls have offered varying results on who voters actually support between the two should DeSantis join Trump in campaigning for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) blows her top after Senator Kyrsten Sinema (I-Ariz.) announced she was leaving the Democratic Party on Friday and then stated she won’t rule out voting for a Republican in 2024 over President Biden.

Sinema will now vote as an Independent which enraged Ocasio-Cortez. She announced her decision in an op-ed via the Arizona Republic that blasted America’s two-party system.

“Americans are told that we have only two choices – Democrat or Republican – and that we must subscribe wholesale to policy views the parties hold, views that have been pulled further and further toward the extremes,” she commented. “Most Arizonans believe this is a false choice, and when I ran for the U.S. House and the Senate, I promised Arizonans something different.”

Ocasio-Cortez wrote a scathing tweet in response, “Not once in this long soliloquy does Sinema offer a single concrete value or policy she believes in. She lays out no goals for Arizonans, no vision, no commitments. It’s ‘no healthcare, just vibes’ for Senate. People deserve more. Grateful this race & nomination has opened up.”

The Arizona senator also won’t commit to voting for President Biden in 2024 and said she could not say for certain she will vote for a Democrat either. She made the comments during an interview with CNN anchor Jake Tapper who asked her about the presidential contest in 2024.

“Looking forward to 2024, will you support Joe Biden for President, if he runs?” Tapper asked Sinema.

“You know, folks know this about me, I don’t typically talk much about partisan politics and I don’t talk much about elections,” she replied.

Tapper didn’t give up on the issue, pressing her on voting for Biden. He asked her if she publicly supported him in 2020.

“Yes, I did,” Sinema said. “I felt at the time he was the best candidate running for President.”

Tapper asked Sinema if she would truly vote Independent instead of embracing either political party.

“So, you really are going to view the 2024 election as an Independent?” he incredulously asked her. “You are not automatically going to go with the Democratic candidate? You’re going to see which one you prefer?”

“I always make my decision based on who I think is right for our country, who is the best person for the job. And it doesn’t matter to me much whether that person is affiliated with any party or which party they’re affiliated with. What matters to me is the quality of the person and whether or not he or she is the right person for that job,” Sinema responded.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) could be gearing up for a 2024 Presidential bid.

Rubio finished third in the GOP’s Presidential primary in 2016, behind former President Donald Trump and Senator Ted Cruz (Texas).

All the signs point to a possible 2024 bid as Rubio prepares to release his third book, “Decades of Decadence,” on June 13, 2023.

In 2015, months before announcing his intention to seek the Presidency, Rubio released his first book “American Dreams.”

The timing of his third book — the second released in 2021 outside election season — points to jockeying for the GOP primary.

Despite the confirmation of the 272-page book’s release date and publisher (Broadside Books — a division of Harper Collins), nothing exists about the contents of the book.

However, a 2023 book release comes as little exists in the way of Rubio being considered a contender in the 2024 GOP Presidential primaries.

Among the list of possible contenders — Nikki Haley, former Vice President Mike Pence, and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, among others — Rubio’s name hasn’t featured.

According to reporting by The Hill, citing two “GOP operatives,” Rubio will likely avail himself for a Presidential race if the opportunity for a bid opened up.

However, another operative noted that Rubio would have lost plenty of the voter base he had in 2016.

The operative pointed to two of Rubio’s surrogates in 2016 — Haley and another potential 2024 contender Senator Tim Scott (S.C.) — fielding Presidential bids of their own.

But the operative pointed to Rubio’s record of wins, being a “great communicator and a very skilled candidate” as reasons Rubio could be viable.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Gov. Gavin Newsom of California, who in recent years has burnished his profile as a future White House contender, told President Joe Biden on election night that he was not planning a 2024 primary challenge, according to Politico’s Jonathan Martin.

Newsom “told everyone in the White House” ranging “from the chief of staff to the first lady” about his intentions, he revealed to Martin — and was firmly behind the president’s expected reelection bid.

During a trip to Washington, DC this past summer, he wanted Ron Klain and Jill Biden to know that he was “all in” for the president’s plans for 2024.

“I’m all in, count me in,” Newsom told the pair, per his conversation with Martin.

“He not only beat Trump once, I think he can beat him again,” the governor said of Biden. “I hope he runs, I’ll enthusiastically support him.”

Newsom, who was easily reelected to a second term as governor this month after winning his 2018 gubernatorial election in a landslide and also defeating a 2021 recall election attempt, has emerged on the national scene as a staunch promoter of the Democratic Party’s values.

This year, Newsom has encouraged Democrats to go bold in their agenda and more effectively communicate with voters about their policies, notably abortion rights. And he has publicly tussled with Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida, who could potentially launch a 2024 presidential bid against former President Donald Trump.

But the high-profile nature of Newsom’s remarks led many to believe that he was plotting for a 2024 bid of his own, which frustrated him.

“It’s frustrating because I have so much reverence and respect for not only the president but the vice president is an old friend, for all of those interesting things you guys all love to write about, we’ve known each other for 25 years,” said Newsom, who also mentioned Vice President Kamala Harris, a former California state attorney general and US senator.

Newsom then said he wouldn’t run for president in 2024 even if Biden reverses course and opts out of a reelection bid, but the governor didn’t rule out a 2028 campaign, per the interview with Martin.

The California governor, one of the younger generation leaders within the Democratic Party, has not held back in critiquing the party, which is something that many progressives have been clamoring for — with many grassroots activists frustrated that the party’s leaders aren’t more frequently on the offensive against the GOP.

Newsom declared California “a true freedom state” while speaking with reporters, touting the Golden State compared to states that have passed a raft of abortion restrictions after Roe v. Wade was overturned by the Supreme Court this past summer.

In the midterm elections, California voters overwhelmingly approved a ballot measure that amended the state constitution to guarantee reproductive freedom.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Former President Donald Trump’s eldest daughter, Ivanka, sent shockwaves through the political realm Tuesday by releasing a statement announcing that she will not be participating in her father’s second bid for the presidency.

“I love my father very much. This time around, I am choosing to prioritize my young children and the private life we are creating as a family. I do not plan to be involved in politics,” she said in a statement released around 10:00 pm.

“While I will always love and support my father, going forward I will do so outside the political arena. I am grateful to have had the honor of serving the American people and I will always be proud of many of our Administration’s accomplishments,” she added.

The statement was released shortly after her father announced his candidacy for office. Ivanka reportedly didn’t attend the announcement rally, but her husband, former senior Trump administration advisor Jared Kushner, did.

Ivanka’s decision comes despite a concerted effort by her father to convince her to participate in his campaign just as she’d done so six years earlier.

“Trump spent part of daughter Tiffany’s lavish Mar-a-Lago wedding this past weekend trying to convince his much-loved elder daughter, Ivanka, and son-in-law Jared Kushner to be with him on stage when he announces his third consecutive run for the presidency at the Palm Beach resort Tuesday night,” the New York Post reported Monday, citing insider sources.

“Trump thought he could convince Ivanka this weekend to come back and campaign for him as she was the most requested speaker after the president himself last time around … but so far she’s resisting his entreaties and holding firm, as is Jared,” one of the sources said.

“They both feel they got burned in Washington and don’t want to go back and expose themselves and their children to another bitter campaign,” the source added.

It’s not entirely clear why Kushner wound up showing up anyway, though this reportedly doesn’t mean he’s changed his mind and will be participating in his father-in-law’s reelection campaign.

Neither are Eric Trump and his wife, Lara Trump, nor the president’s wife, Melania, expected to hold any significant roles in the administration, despite all three being in attendance at Tuesday’s rally.
