In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Trump and his aides abandon Gaetz

They must know some stuff.

According to Politico:

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) built a public profile as an unapologetic, unambiguous, omnipresent booster of President Donald Trump.

But as his own political career skids toward disaster amid allegations that he had sex with a minor and paid for sex with women of legal age, neither Trump nor anyone in the ex-president’s orbit is rushing to Gaetz’s defense. A group that often instinctively decries any such charge as part of some nefarious, coordinated witch hunt from deep-state operators has, instead, said virtually nothing at all.

“Not a lot of people are surprised,” said one person involved in Trump’s post-presidential operations.

In the days since news broke that the Department of Justice was looking into whether Gaetz had violated sex trafficking laws — an allegation he denies — no Trump aide or family member has tweeted about the Florida congressman. Nor have almost any of the most prominent Trump surrogates or Trump-allied conservatives and media personalities, including Sean Hannity, Dan Bongino, Charlie Kirk or American Conservative Union Chair Matt Schlapp, at whose annual CPAC conference Gaetz had recently appeared.

  1. He’s not my congressman, don’t know him at all, don’t care what he does or did.
    The question is this: Is that it? He paid women for sexual favors, maybe had relations with a 17yr old . So what, we’re all asking.
    Did he get money for all this from a Russian’s wife, did he have favorable treatment from a foreign company after his father threatened them, or has he a stake in the latest free-bies from the federal government? No….well, I repeat. So what!

    Women who prostitute themselves and the men who seek them is a story as old as humanity.

  2. Gaetz apparently openly flaunted living a playboy lifestyle and used his status as a national politician to facilitate it. In this day and age, that will almost certainly bite you in the end. He’s now being bit.
