DeSantis Talks About Leaked Debate Strategy Memo, Vows to Punch Back in First GOP Debate:
Speaking about the first GOP debate, this week in New Hampshire, Ron DeSantis downplayed a ‘Never Back Down’ debate memo. He claimed the written strategy was… ‘not mine. I haven’t read it'…[ and says he's] "ready to do what we need to" at Wednesday's first Republican presidential nomination debate, to deliver his message, and defend himself from rival candidates.
The leaked documents, grabbed plenty of headlines, since the New York Times first reported on the documents, a of couple of days ago. This was in an apparent attempt by advisors at Never Back Down to float potential debate talking points to the governor. However the leak was viewed as another stumble for the DeSantis world.
Among other things, the memo urged DeSantis to defend former President Donald Trump, the commanding front-runner for the GOP presidential nomination. It also urged DeSantis to "hammer" Ramaswamy, another up and coming rival for the nomination.
In the very crucial early voting state of New Hampshire, Gov. DeSantis returned to the campaign trail this week. On August 19, 2023, he also marched in the Londonderry, New Hampshire, annual Old Home Day Parade.
After a series of setbacks the past two months, which triggered weeks of negative stories spotlighting his campaign’s overspending, change of leadership, staff layoffs, and other setbacks, DeSantis is trying to change the narrative. This week’s debate will likely be reflected in these many changes.
Despite Trump's large lead over DeSantis, which has expanded this summer, the governor remains in second place in most polling. He remains ahead of the rest, of Republican presidential contenders going into the debate.
On Wednesday, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, his campaign argues that "every candidate on and off the debate stage will have their knives out for Ron DeSantis" at this first debate. DeSantis reiterated on Saturday-
"I know from the military, when you’re over the target, that’s when you’re taking flak. And if you look really in the last six to nine months, I’ve been more attacked than anybody else. Biden, Harris, the media, the left, other Republican candidates,"... "And there’s a reason for that, because people know that I’m the biggest threat. So we view it as positive feedback. We’ll be ready to do what we need to do to deliver our message, but we absolutely expect that, and we’ll be ready for it."
-Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, GOP Presidential Hopeful
In a new memo, sent to donors and supporters from DeSantis’ recently installed campaign manager, James Uthmeier, the campaign, again argued that the governor will be "the center of attacks" at Wednesday's debate. However it reassured supporters that the campaign's "fully prepared" to be "on the receiving end of false, desperate charges from other candidates, and the legacy media."
“Solutions-oriented campaigning with a little passion and a little humor; I think that will go a long way. I think people are desperate for it.”

MARYLAND MAN WHO SEXUALLY ABUSED HIS STEPDAUGHTER SENTENCED TO LIFE IN PRISON.
BY MANDY DONALDS:
AUGUST 21, 2023
A 63-year-old Maryland man, Quinton Perry, has been handed a life sentence plus an additional 25 years in prison for sexually abusing his stepdaughter, who was merely a young child at the time when the torment commenced, Fox News reported.
Perry's sentencing occurred Friday morning, as the Prince George's County State's Attorney's Office reported.
The presiding judge told Mr. Perry that he had not merely stolen the girl's innocence but had inflicted damage that would affect her entire life, according to Prince George's County State's Attorney Aisha Braveboy.
A Timeline of Abuse
Court documents reveal that the abuse started in 2011, when the girl was just eight years old, and continued until 2015.
The young victim reported the abuse in 2018 when she was 14 years old.
At the time of her testimony during the trial, she was 18.
Describing Perry's devastating impact on the family, Assistant State's Attorney Ellen Opdyke likened him to "a stick of dynamite," stating that he "exploded this family."
She added that Perry had physically abused the mother and committed a terrible act against the child.
The repercussions of Perry's actions were not limited to the girl. Braveboy revealed that the abuse "affected the lives of everyone in the family."
Other children in the family were also abused by Perry, leading the family to seek counseling.
The Path to Justice
The girl endured abuse at Perry's hands for almost five years before finding the strength to come forward and accuse him of sexual misconduct.
Her action led to Perry's arrest and eventual conviction on August 3, 2022, WUSA 9 reported.
She had previously disclosed to the Child Advocacy Center in 2019 the harrowing details of the abuse, including how Perry inappropriately touched her and coerced her into performing sexual acts on him.
Assistant State's Attorney Ellen Opdyke acknowledged the challenges faced by victims in reporting abuse, saying that victims often struggle with the belief that they won't be taken seriously.
She commended the girl for facing her abuser during the trial and detailed how the trauma continues to affect her life.
Emphasizing the importance of the conviction, Opdyke said, "Fortunately, there is no statute of limitations for the sexual abuse of a minor. This means it's never too late to get justice."
She added that Perry "will never be able to harm another person in this country." [Washington Digest]
MINNESOTA’S DEMOCRATIC GOVERNOR SAYS JOE BIDEN IS UNPOPULAR BECAUSE REPUBLICANS HAVE ‘POISONED’ THE SYSTEM, EVEN AS CRIME AND INFLATION SOAR:
Democratic Gov. Tim Walz of Minnesota has claimed that waning support for President Joe Biden's re-election bid is not a result of Biden's own record or age but rather a consequence of the influence of former President Donald Trump and the Republican Party that he says has "poisoned" the system.
Walz asserts that the American political system has been degraded, leading to a lack of trust in institutions and a significant erosion of public confidence, as Daily Wire reports.
The Poisoning of the Political Landscape
In an interview on NBC News' Meet The Press, Walz firmly pointed the finger at Trump and the GOP, asserting that their actions have undermined trust in the democratic process.
According to Walz, the prevailing skepticism towards the government and its institutions directly results from the partisan attacks that have characterized recent years.
"No one trusts our institutions, no one trusts Congress, no one trusts any of us, because all they do is attack our families do those types of things," he emphasized.
A Referendum on Democracy
Contrary to speculation, Walz insists that the upcoming election should not be seen as a referendum on Biden's age or personal attributes but rather as a pivotal moment for reaffirming the value of democracy itself.
Walz said, "The fact of the matter is, this isn't about Joe Biden's age. This is about the democracy. And they'll –- as we get closer to the election, they'll see that."
He argues that if Democrats desire to protect fundamental rights such as "reproductive freedoms" and pursue progressive agendas like combating climate change, then Biden should be their candidate of choice.
Promises and Realities
During the 2020 campaign, Democrats often emphasized that electing Biden would mean restoring adherence to norms at the White House. While on the trail, Biden tweeted that he would bring "honor and decency" back to Washington.
However, during Biden's term, cocaine was found in the West Wing, and a transgender-identifying activist appeared topless on the White House lawn. This led many to point out the perceived hypocrisy in those earlier promises.
Unity in the Midwest
Walz revealed that he recently engaged in strategic discussions with fellow Democratic Govs. Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan and Tony Evers of Wisconsin. These conversations aimed to formulate effective approaches to secure victory for Biden in the Midwest region.
Economic Narrative and Public Opinion
Walz also stood up for the president's management of the economy — an area in which Biden's approval ratings remain consistently low.
He dismissed the concern as a "global phenomenon" and attributed part of the responsibility to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to Walz, Biden's agenda has been more effective than any other country in the world at curbing inflation, reinvigorating manufacturing, prioritizing the high-tech chip sector, and addressing climate change and infrastructure.
Nevertheless, only 36% of Americans approve of Biden's economic management, as revealed by an Associated Press/NORC survey. In the same study, 42% of Americans endorsed Biden's overall presidential performance.
According to a July Yahoo News/YouGov poll, a majority of Americans are opposed to the idea of Biden seeking re-election. Specifically, 53% of Democrats prefer Biden as the nominee, while 35% favor an alternative candidate, as a report in the New York Post explained.
Age and Health Concerns
While Walz downplays concerns about Biden's age, recent polling data suggests that many Americans are worried about the president's health. A June ABC News poll revealed that 68% of voters expressed apprehension about Biden's well-being, with 55% considering it a "major" concern.

Meadows Caves – Flips on Trump In Brutal Move:
In contrast to the previous public defense put forth by former President Donald Trump, former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows brutally flipped on him and has informed special counsel Jack Smith’s investigators that he has no recollection of Trump issuing any directives or engaging in discussions regarding the declassification of extensive sets of classified documents prior to his departure from the White House.
Furthermore, Meadows claims to be unaware of any enduring directive from Trump that would authorize the automatic declassification of materials removed from the Oval Office. These details have been shared by sources familiar with the situation to ABC News.
Since the occurrence of the FBI’s confiscation of over 100 classified documents from his Mar-a-Lago home in August of the previous year, Trump has consistently maintained that he had authorized the declassification of all the aforementioned information prior to the conclusion of his presidential term.
The ex-president is currently confronted with a total of 40 distinct criminal allegations brought by Democrats pertaining to his retention of those documents. Joe Biden also had classified documents at his home but he has not been charged.
Trump has entered a plea of not guilty to all counts and has vehemently denied any involvement in any illegal activities.
ABC News has conducted a comprehensive analysis of an initial version of the introductory section of Meadows’ literary work titled “The Chief’s Chief,” which delves into his tenure as the chief of staff during the concluding months of the Trump administration.
This section encompasses a depiction of Trump possessing a confidential military strategy document “on the couch” within his office located in Bedminster, New Jersey. The meeting in question was attended by Meadows’ ghostwriter and publicist, but notably, Meadows himself was absent. The mention of the document being in Trump’s office was expunged before the publication of the book.
ABC News has been informed by several sources that Meadows admitted to investigators that he made a request for the alteration of the paragraph, and he recognized the potential complications that would arise if Trump had indeed possessed such a document. According to sources cited by ABC News, Meadows reportedly informed special counsel investigators that he did not engage in any discussions with Trump regarding the aforementioned edits.
According to sources, Meadows informed investigators that he did not participate in the process of packing the boxes that were transported to Mar-a-Lago by Trump subsequent to his departure from the White House.
This statement effectively establishes a significant degree of separation between Meadows and the removal of federal records, which encompassed data categorized as sensitive. According to the sources, Meadows informed investigators that he did not personally observe President Trump engaging in the act of packing boxes, nor was he aware of any instance when Trump had removed federal records, especially those classified in nature.
According to Meadows, he informed investigators that in close proximity to the National Archives’ initial request for the repatriation of the official documents transported to Mar-a-Lago in 2021, he proposed to Trump the idea of personally examining the former president’s containers in order to retrieve the official records and facilitate their return to Washington. According to reports, Meadows informed investigators that President Trump declined the offer.
After the FBI conducted a search of Mar-a-Lago in August 2022, a statement was released by Trump’s team to a media outlet. The statement asserted that during his tenure as President, Trump had implemented a directive whereby documents removed from the Oval Office and transported to the residence were automatically considered declassified upon his removal of them. According to statements made by President Trump on social media, he asserted that the records located at Mar-a-Lago had been fully declassified.
Based on the information provided by individuals with knowledge of the situation, Meadows informed investigators that he had been exposed to the term “standing order” during his tenure at the White House; however, he clarified that it was not in the context of the declassification procedure.
A spokeswoman representing Trump, in a statement sent to ABC News, made an assertion that the Justice Department engaged in the selective dissemination of incomplete material with the intention of influencing the outcome of the 2024 election.
The assertion posited that the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the special counsel “have resorted to selectively leaking incomplete information that lacks proper context because they know they can’t win inside a courtroom, so now they are trying to deceive Americans through the court of public opinion,” adding that “This witch-hunt is nothing more than a desperate attempt to interfere in the 2024 election as President Trump dominates the polls and is the only person who will take back the White House.”
According to several people who are acquainted with the situation, Meadows reported to investigators that he witnessed President Trump declassifying documents during his tenure as the chief of staff. This particular instance involved a binder containing materials related to the FBI’s “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation into the alleged connections between Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia.
The aforementioned executive order, which was issued during the concluding period of President Trump’s tenure in the White House, has been a matter of contention. The Justice Department has been reluctant to provide the alleged documents in question to the public.
Meadows has refrained from making public statements regarding the classified documents investigation, as well as Smith’s concurrent inquiry into Trump and his associates’ endeavors to invalidate the outcome of the 2020 election. This has led to conjecture within Trump’s close circle regarding the nature of Meadows’ disclosures to investigators in that particular investigation, as per sources.
Last week, Meadows, along with Trump and 17 other individuals, was indicted in Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ independent investigation pertaining to allegations of election involvement in Georgia.
According to sources, Smith’s team has also conducted interviews with additional witnesses regarding the omission of references to the war plan document in the initial version of Meadows’ book.

Why The Heart? Dr McCullough explains.
A 4-minute explanation of why the heart is one organ most often damaged by covid-19 biologic weapons injections. This and more from Dr Peter McCullough, Dr Geert VandenBossche, and Del Bigtree.
1. Why are covid-19 biological weapons injections so effective at destroying the hearts of even young people? The so-called covid-19 "vaccines" distribute throughout the entire body and many organs are damaged. The heart is one of the most common organs seriously damaged; this has resulted in vast numbers of deaths and injuries, including heart attacks, ruptured aortas, myocarditis, and cardiac arrhythmia.
Speaking with Dr Geert VandenBossche and Del BigTree, Dr Peter McCullough gave this 4 minute explanation as to why covid injections are especially effective at causing heart damage. Here is the clip as well as the entire conversation.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Makes Major Announcement Nobody Saw Coming:
Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has demanded that the GOP-controlled House censure President Joe Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland. The vehement Georgia Republican suggested that Garland and Matthew Graves, the US Attorney for the District of Columbia, should both be impeached.
In a recent tweet, she criticized the AG, saying that his “refusal to prosecute Joe and Hunter Biden while persecuting President Trump and many conservatives is grounds for impeachment,” and that “it’s absolutely unacceptable to allow these criminals to maintain power.”
She mentioned in another tweet that soon after Biden took office, she moved to impeach him.
“I filed Articles of Impeachment on Joe Biden’s first full day in office,” she wrote. “We already knew many of the crimes he committed then, but now we know so much more in just 6 months of a Republican-led House thanks to the important investigative work being done on @GOPOversight.”
The House GOP leadership does not, however, seem eager to act.
“House Republicans have introduced multiple impeachment resolutions against President Joe Biden, focused largely on what they call lax enforcement of the U.S. border with Mexico. Other House impeachment efforts target Attorney General Merrick Garland and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on the border issue and over investigations, or lack thereof, regarding bad boy presidential son Hunter Biden,” the Washington Examiner reported.
“But just because a batch of high-profile House Republicans are pushing to oust Biden and members of his team from office doesn’t mean it’s going to happen. House Republican leaders have many considerations on the impeachment front. Starting, of course, with whether evidence exists to warrant a removal attempt. Then there’s the potential political blowback should the narrow House majority move ahead, considering impeachment efforts are virtually guaranteed to fail in the Senate, where there’s nowhere near a two-thirds majority willing to convict,” the outlet added.
Regarding the impeachment process, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and other members of the House leadership group have been ambivalent.
Americans are extremely worried about Biden as the 2024 election approaches because throughout the first half of 2023, his net approval rating dropped by more than four points.
According to a survey by Echelon Insights, a startling one-third of participants said they planned to vote a different candidate in the Democratic primary before the 2024 election instead of Biden.
According to the poll, 60% of respondents said they would “definitely” or “probably” support Biden in the Democratic presidential primary if it were held today. Another 33% said they would back a different Democrat, and 7% said they were undecided.
“In the same poll, Biden receives more support when the names of two Democratic primary challengers—environmental activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the nephew of President John F. Kennedy and son of Senator Robert F. Kennedy, and self-help author Marianne Williamson—are included in a question about who voters would back in a Democratic presidential primary,” Newsweek reported.
Similar results have been seen in other recent polls, showing that the performance of the Biden administration has been worrisome to the point where some Democrats are interested in an alternative candidate for 2024 as Biden deteriorates physically and psychologically.
“In April, Biden formally announced he is seeking a second term in the White House, with polling showing he is the firm frontrunner to be the Democrats’ 2024 presidential candidate, potentially setting up a rematch against Donald Trump. Thus Biden’s popularity is likely to play a key role in determining who serves as president from January 2025 onwards,” the outlet noted further.
In a different poll, Vice President Kamala Harris’ popularity rating is considerably low, and Joe Biden’s job approval is stable.
“President Biden’s disapproval rating has ticked up to include a slim majority of voters, according to a poll. In an Emerson College poll released Thursday, 51 percent of respondents said they disapprove of Biden’s performance as president, up 2 percentage points from April. Just 41 percent of voters approved of Biden’s job as president, which is consistent with the April poll,” The Hill reported.
“Biden has been fundraising for his reelection campaign in California as part of a travel blitz to raise money ahead of his first 2024 campaign finance report in July. The poll also found that 73 percent of Democratic primary voters would vote for Biden, which is much higher compared to his Democratic primary challengers. Only 15 percent of voters said they would vote for Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and 3 percent would vote for Marianne Williamson,” the outlet added.
The president and his running mate have received similarly poor ratings in other studies of a similar nature. A majority of registered voters believe that Biden is “too old for another term” in government, according to a Yahoo News/YouGov poll conducted earlier this month. Almost seven out of ten people (68%) acknowledged that they have an issue with the president’s age of 80.

No remains unearthed yet from Canada’s residential school grave sites:
They are confident because they checked their accounting…😊
On May 27, 2021, the news broke those unmarked graves containing the remains of indigenous children had been discovered on the grounds of a former residential school in British Columbia.
The Kamloops Indian residential school, which operated from the late 19th century to the late 1970s, was among Canada’s government-sponsored schools run by the Catholic Church to forcibly assimilate indigenous children.
More than a year later, no bodies have been discovered at the Kamloops site. It is not clear whether the graves said to have been discovered there actually exist.
The topic of the residential schools has come back into focus on the occasion of Pope Francis’ penitential trip to Canada. In apologizing for the Catholic Church’s role in operating Canada’s government-sponsored residential school system, he regretted the “cultural destruction and forced assimilation” inflicted on the indigenous people of the country. Indigenous children were taken from their families and forbidden to speak their native languages.
As a “starting point” the pope called for “a serious investigation into the facts of what took place in the past and to assist the survivors of the residential schools to experience healing from the traumas they suffered.”
Media frenzy distorts initial finding:
At the root of the controversy is how the purported burial sites were discovered. Ground penetrating radar picked up images, but it is yet to be determined whether those images represent graves.
In hindsight, the announcement of the results of the radar testing was made with a caveat. It was seen as a “preliminary”finding, yet the media and politicians ran with the story that mass graves were found at the site of a former residential school.
"This past weekend, with the help of a ground penetrating radar specialist, the stark truth of the preliminary findings came to light — the confirmation of the remains of 215 children who were students of the Kamloops Indian Residential School," Chief Rosanne Casimir of the Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc community said after the initial announcement.
“Remains of 215 children found at former Kamloops residential school: First Nation,”read a headline in the Vancouver Sun. The lead of the story read: “A B.C. First Nation has confirmed that the remains of 215 children who were students at the Kamloops Indian Residential School have been found on the reserve using ground-penetrating radar.”
The Associated Press’ story that week made the radar results appear definitive: “The remains of 215 children, some as young as 3 years old, have been found buried on the site of what was once Canada's largest Indigenous residential school — one of the institutions that held children taken from families across the nation.”
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau adopted similar language in a statement he issued the day after the research findings were announced: “The news that remains were found at the former Kamloops residential school breaks my heart — it is a painful reminder of that dark and shameful chapter of our country’s history. I am thinking about everyone affected by this distressing news. We are here for you.”
In its report on what it called the “grisly discovery,”the New York Post called the suspected burial site a “mass grave.”
“A mass grave filled with the remains of 215 Indigenous children, some as young as three, has been found on the grounds of a former residential school in Canada that was known for physical, emotional and sexual abuse, reports said Friday,”the Post story began.
In a story published June 7, 2021, headlined “How Thousands of Indigenous Children Vanished in Canada,” The New York Times reported, “The remains of more than 1,000 people, mostly children, have been discovered on the grounds of three former residential schools in two Canadian provinces since May.”

Biden may declare a 'national climate emergency' to further the Green New Deal by non-democratic means: 'Just like COVID':
Democrats have had trouble advancing the whole of their radical Green New Deal by democratic means, so they're now calling upon President Joe Biden to invoke abstract threats and exploit real tragedies to get their way.
Proponents of the climate alarmist legislation that would see the state's power grow further at the expense of the populace were not placated in the least by the green handouts resultant of last year's "Inflation Reduction Act," which authorized well over $600 billion in spending on so-called renewable energy and climate change initiatives.
In July 2022, Sen. Edward Markey (D-Mass.), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and other leftist senators in the Democratic caucus penned a letter to Biden, stating, "For too long, we have been waiting for a single piece of legislation, and a single Senate vote, to take bold action on our climate crisis. ... As a result, we urge you to put us on an emergency footing and aggressively use your executive powers to address the climate crisis."
Having not yet gotten their way in full, leftists in Washington, D.C., now seek to cite the wildfires in Hawaii — which appear to have been largely resultant of negligence and the vain pursuit of Democrats' green agenda — as reason enough for Biden to declare a national climate emergency.
Markey, one of the authors of the original Green New Deal resolution, said in a statement to Politico, "The devastation in Maui is a clear sign that the president must declare a climate emergency — now."
"While FEMA is providing resources to the local heroes on the ground fighting for the lives and livelihoods of Hawaiians, the underlying climate-driven conditions of drought, extreme heat, environmental injustice, and non-resilient infrastructure will remain," added Markey.
Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) similarly called for a statist solution to the specter of anthopogenic climate change, stating, "This is a crisis and we need to treat it that way. That starts with President Biden declaring a national climate emergency to unlock vast federal resources and emergency powers to help our communities prepare for and recover from these deadly climate disasters."
When asked earlier this month by the Weather Network whether he intended to make such a declaration, the 80-year-old president claimed he had done so, "practically speaking."
Biden, who spent the most recent stretch of the over 365 vacation days he has so far taken as president at a billionaire climate alarmist's home in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, claimed, "We've already done that. ... We've conserved more land, we've moved into rejoining the Paris Climate Accord. We've got a $60 billion climate control facility."
Mark Nevitt, a professor at Emory University’s School of Law, characterized the national climate emergency declaration as a "skeleton key" that "unlocks the door" to other powers, reported The Hill.
The Center for Biological Diversity pushed a report last year entitled, "Legal Guide to Bold Climate Action from President Biden," which stated that by declaring a climate emergency, Biden could take various drastic actions, such as: halt crude oil exports; stop oil and gas drilling in the outer continental shelf; and restrict international trade and private investment in fossil fuels.
Tim Steward, president of the U.S. Oil and Gas Association, told Just the News, "If you grant the president's emergency powers to declare a climate emergency, it's just like COVID."
Accordingly, Biden would end up with "vast and unchecked authority to shut down everything from communications to infrastructure," said Steward.
Even some left-leaning analysts worry that such an emergency declaration would leave Biden with new dictatorial powers that would be ripe for abuse.
Elizabeth Goitein, co-director of the Brennan Center for Justice's Liberty and National Security Program, wrote, "Overbroad emergency powers provide a ready mechanism for undermining democracy and entrenching political power."
Politico reported that any such executive action to this end would face legal challenges, "including going up against a conservative Supreme Court that has already ruled that the Environmental Protection Agency does not have the broad authority to rein in carbon pollution."
Extra to the likely illegality of such a usurpation and exercise of power to combat the weather, a Green New Deal by decree could harm Biden's chances of re-election, given that gas prices would likely skyrocket once again.
Nevertheless, some reportedly suspect he may ultimately make the declaration and soon.
