(Republican Insider) – Former Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, who is absolutely no stranger to making bold predictions and unashamed of her conservative values, recently stated that, for anyone who has their eyes open, the Democratic Party is clearly trying to dump President Joe Biden at the very last second as their party’s nominee for president in the upcoming 2024 election, hoping to replace him with someone they believe will have no trouble defeating former President Donald Trump. I mean, can you blame the left for this one? Biden doesn’t know what century he’s in and struggles just to stay upright on steps. Does this sound like the guy who should be running the greatest nation on earth?
Look at his track record. He’s destroyed our economy, boosted inflation and the national debt by astronomical numbers, caused Afghanistan to be taken back over by the Taliban, and on the list goes. With approval ratings swirling around the bottom of the toilet bowl, how can anyone think running this guy for a second term is a good idea?
Warner Todd Huston of The Western Journal wrote, “Kari Lake joined Newsmax host Eric Bolling on Monday where the subject of the coming campaign for the White House came up, Newsmax reported. The former gubernatorial candidate, who is now running for Arizona’s seat in the U.S. Senate, told Bolling that the party is “already starting to make some plays” to push the aging, infirm Biden aside.”
Lake is also convinced Democrats have more or less pulled their punches and revealed who they want the real candidate for the White House to be: California Gov. Gavin Newsom.
If that doesn’t send a shudder up your spine, what will? It’s hard to imagine a more hostile individual from the left occupying the Oval Office.
One thing that adds some credibility to this particular theory is Newsom’s behavior in the last few months, which clearly indicates he has bigger plans for his political career and he’s not shy about it. He can deny it all he wants, but actions speak louder than words.
“Early this year, he traveled the country and engaged in repeated ankle-biting attacks on Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in an effort to damage the Florida governor as much as possible and to keep his own name in the news. He then played the good Democrat and gave an enthusiastic endorsement of Joe Biden, so that he didn’t look like a ‘challenger,'” Huston said.
Newsom also applied his veto power to several extremely left-wing bills, a ploy to make himself look more and more like a centrist rather than a radical socialist. It’s a neat trick and there’s some benefit for the American people living in his state, but it’s just a ruse to get people to look at him as a potential good fit for the White House.
“And last week, he flew to China to visit with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing to fool voters into thinking he is a foreign policy leader. So, clearly Newsom has far bigger plans that [than] being just governor of California,” The Western Journal noted.
Lake also drew attention to Newsom’s trip to China.
“It’s pretty obvious if you’re watching,” she remarked in the video. “He’s over there in China meeting with the guy who will really be in control of the Democrat Party. And we’re just watching as they’re starting to get their chess pieces on the board.”
“I think they know that Joe Biden is going to be such a disaster, that the Democrat Party will collapse if he is on the ticket,” Lake continued.
“I don’t know who it’s going to be ultimately, but my bet is that Gavin Newsom is starting to move in,” Lake wondered aloud. “They realize that not just Joe Biden but [Vice President] Kamala Harris are disastrous, and the voters just will not vote for those two.”
I think it’s safe to say that Lake is onto something here. Will the candidate of choice be Newsom or someone else? It’s hard to know at the moment, but I doubt we’ll be waiting long to find out.
