REPORT: Republican Governors Association Funneled Money to DeSantis Campaign to Attack President Trump


The Republican Governors Association (RGA) paid the DeSantis Campaign to attack President Trump. 

You just can’t make this stuff up.

Sundance at the Conservative Treehouse often puts together some great work.  This week he landed another great piece.

According to Sundance, the Republican Governors Association donated funds to DeSantis in 2022 for his gubernatorial campaign.  This money was then used in DeSantis’s campaign for President.  The attacks on President Trump were funded in part with this money.

This is kind of a funny and very real political story if you follow the mechanics of it.   Essentially, it starts out with Politico noting the Ron DeSantis’ Super PAC Never Back Down, paid the Club for Growth Super PAC, Win It Back, $2.75 million dollars to run attack ads against Donald Trump.  {Background Story}

Apparently, Ron DeSantis didn’t want to attack Trump directly, so using the Machiavellian tactics the professionally Republican group is known for, DeSantis funded a third-party to attack Trump on his behalf.   A lot of people take issue with this discovery, but the story is actually deeper, and yes, even more Machiavellian.

You see, you might remember the DeSantis Super PAC was actually funded from the remaining campaign funds of Ron DeSantis in 2022.  This was done with forethought and by specific design.  This part is even noted in the Politico outline.  However, what is missing is the other layer.  The DeSantis campaign was funded with $20 million by the Republican Governors Association (RGA).   That is a big part of the money that was later transferred to the super PAC.

So put this in context, because this is the non-pretending reality that was built into the program.

The RGA gives DeSantis $20 million in 2022 knowing it will be transferred into his presidential campaign super PAC in 2023.  A part of that money – $2.75 million – is then sent to the Club for Growth (C4G).  The Club for Growth then attacks Donald Trump.   In essence, the Republican Governors Association funded the attack against Trump using DeSantis as the broker.  Three layers of plausible deniability built in.

Now, ask yourself, who exactly does the RGA support?    What is the goal and intent of this “approved Republican” political system that operates in the background of our national politics?    When you answer those questions, you realize why the RNC has no support from Republican base voters…

…Not only did Ron DeSantis support the attacks against Donald Trump, but his campaign also financed those attacks in common alignment with the RGA, RNC and Club for Growth.  This is a great example of the “illusion of choice” we have often discussed.

The GOP doesn’t like their party.  We saw it first when candidate Trump stepped up in 2016.  Then we saw FOX fall apart with its grand finale on election night 2020.  While massive corruption was taking place around the country, FOX was ridiculing its base and President Trump’s base and telling us how lousy we all were for supporting President Trump.  A short time later Tucker Carlson and Dan Bongino were gone and FOX paid Dominion nearly $1 billion without waiting for the results of the Georgia audit of the Dominion machines in use there.

Since then the Trump base has only grown and Professor Halderman shared more support that the Dominion machines are not secure.  And FOX news moved on with their anti-Trump attitude.

With time we are seeing all the bad players involved in this mess for who they really are.  Some we thought were on our side.

    • And this is exactly why our country is so divided. Calling people names doesn’t unite. It just incites hate and sows division.

  1. This is from one source – “Sundance”. I’m not sure I would believe something from one source. Also, all these tactics supposedly played right into Trump’s hands, so how do you know that Trump isn’t behind this. He loves all the attention, and he knows how to make people feel sympathy for him. He’s a snake oil salesman.

    Sorry, but I’m just not buying this. I’ve done deep research into DeSantis’s background and none of this adds up with what I’ve been finding. However, the truth will eventually come out. It always does. So when it does, and if it shows Trump is not the good guy you all want to believe him to be, will you post that? Or will you continue to be biased toward Trump?

    • What is if it turns out Trump is the good guy? I won’t dis DeSantis here, as it does we conservatives no good to attack one another’s support for others. The RINO Republicans though, are probably not working for the advancement of America or Americans at this point and, if you and/or they hate Trump, I would like to know why.

      • It’s not that I hate Trump. It’s that I don’t trust him. I voted for him, and gave him the chance he wanted. Then I watched him in office. What I saw was total incompetence. He totally did a 180 on some things, such as not prosecuting Hillary when he said he would, and totally just dropped the ball on many things. BUT, the thing that totally disqualifies him for me was his total failure in 2020. He screwed up on many things before that, but what he did in 2020 was just incomprehensible. UNFORGIVABLE!!!

        He allowed our country to go into lock-down that totally destroyed our economy, that was already struggling. MILLIONS of small businesses failed because of that. He signed off on policies that allowed a bio-weapon to be mass produced and distributed by our military. Since then MILLIONS have died from those poison shots, and many are STILL dying every single day from those shots. That is just a total dis-qualifier for me. If he gets back into office, there will never be a reckoning for that failure, and that really needs to happen. Trump STILL, to this day, says he did a perfect job with COVID, so he’s either really incompetent, or he’s really corrupt. You decide.

        Trump clearly doesn’t have either the instinct, or the courage to know when something is just not right and to then do something about it.

        DeSantis, however, DOES have both the instinct, and the courage. He was able to sense that something was just not adding up in 2020, and then looked into it. He did his own research. What he found deeply troubled him, so he consulted with several professionals who were sounding the alarm on this. Then he hired Dr. Joseph Ladapo and brought him in as his Surgeon General, and together they worked to open Florida back up very quickly, and get the kids back into schools. In the process they were able to save Florida’s economy, and preserve the freedoms of Floridians. He worked to get legislation in place in Florida to make sure that no mandates could ever be used again against Floridians to force them to take any shots, wear masks, etc. That is what a LEADER actually looks like.

        DeSantis also took on Disney when they tried to force their own agenda on the schools by pushing curriculum that was both pornographic and perverted. They filed suit to try to take down laws that DeSantis worked to put in place to protect those kids. DeSantis fought back, and won. Disney also trying to take over government in the lands that they own, and were trying to take over other lands, and were planning on governing those lands too. That is unconstitutional, so DeSantis put a stop to that too. Disney’s case was just dismissed by the judge in the last couple of days. And get this, Trump actually SUPPORTED DISNEY in that. He was just fine with all the corruption they were involved in. That speaks volumes to me. I can’t support that.

        Everything I’ve found in my research into DeSantis shows he has the cleaner record, the best record of achievements, and the best qualifications to run this country. He’s an attorney, who also holds a degree in history from Yale. He has deeply studied the Constitution, the Federalist Papers (which explain the Constitution), and other founding documents. He wrote a book taking down Obama, which is an amazing read. His depth of knowledge about the founding of this country, and how it was meant to be run, is astounding.

        DeSantis also served in the Navy, so he understands the military, and would make a wonderful Commander-In-Chief. He also served in Congress, so he understands and has personal experience with the legislative process. He knows how it’s done, and he knows the level of corruption in Congress. That’s an advantage. He also has served as Governor for 5 years now, which gave him executive experience, and has shown that he knows how to lead, and follows through on what he says he’s going to do. He knows what’s wrong in this country, and knows how to fix it. Too many people have been more concerned about “charisma” and “personality” than actual functionality. They get upset about awkwardness. DeSantis doesn’t have “charisma” but I really don’t care about that. I know he knows what he’s doing, and will do what he says. I know that I can TRUST him. I can’t say that for Trump.

        • @Newshound, You are so far in left field you can’t even see the game being played.
          •Trump had no ability to prosecute anyone, it’s the AG who does.
          •He naïvely thought the AG, being elected by Republicans would be of the same mind to get justice against Hillary at least — they weren’t.
          •The First AG: Sessions, was afraid of his own shadow.
          •The Second AG: Barr was corrupt and working with the corrupt FBI.
          •Trump did not lose the 2020, it was stole by a deep state coup. The evidence is being exposed in the courts even now.
          •You use hindsight to attack Trump on the Covid jab, when he is not a medical professional and was relying upon the nation’s heads in infectious diseases Fauci and Brix, who later admitted they lied. It was also exposed the Fauci was making a profit from entire Covid gain of function. So cast you vitriolics against those people.
          •Furthermore Trump mandate NO JAB. Mandatory jabs took place ONLY under the Biden administration, who continued them even after the jabs were exposed in Sept 2021 as ineffective against Covid and toxic killers unto themselves.
          •Democrats are still mandating the killer jab and withheld the simple safe and CHEAP fix for Covid: ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine with vitamin D, zinc and an antibiotic. In fact THEY KNEW THAT WAS THE ANSWER and WITHHELD THEM FROM USE to kill as many people as possible.
          •Trump issued NO LOCKDOWN. Lockdowns were STATE ISSUED under states rights. Your complain is against the states, not Trump.
          • Dr. Joseph Ladapo is who saved DeSantis, who did do lockdowns. If Ladapo had been USSG things would have been different, he wasn’t. If he had been, Fauci and the left would have destroyed him as well. The Dem goal was to kill as many people as possible to be replaced by the 3rd world invaders who were not jabbed by Dems even today while Dems carryon issuing jab mandates.
          •Trump was concerned with the massive job losses in fighting Disney. It was only after DeSantis attacked them did the extent of Disney corruption come out. Also this is a STATE matter and not federal, so get your blame on the right party. You fail to recognize the state owns all issues not given to the federal gov’t by our Constitution. You do not understand our Constitution and the separate responsibilities of each.
          •DeSantis is a great GOVERNOR without the personality to win the national election. He wasn’t smart enough to figure out that Americans were not going to abandon Trump because the Dems attacked him endlessly under fake charges.
          •Under Trump we had the best economy in history, lowest unemployment, blacks were doing better with education and employment. Trump was getting us out of foreign wars (which was why the military complex hated him), Trump had SIX PEACE AGREEMENTS IN THE MIDDLE EAST thought impossible.
          •Trump brought of prosperity
          •Dems brought us corruption on ever level from election fraud, to weaponization of our gov’t, deadly jab and the culling of the population—mass murders.
          •There has never been a day in history that Dems have not been mass murders.
          •Biden brought us wars every where and filled our country with terrorists who are attacking our infrastructure and when they succeed the grid down alone will kill nine out of every ten people.
          •Dems will attack ANY CONSERVATIVE that becomes their opposition, including forcing them to commit suicide didn’t anatomically impossible way.

  2. First, is it strange that a GOVERNOR’s Association would support another GOVERNOR?
    Second, once the money is in DeSantis’ campaign, doesn’t his Campaign decide how to spend it?
    Third, you talk a lot about attacks on Trump, but no examples. Hasn’t Trump attacked DeSantis?

    Not sure how to interpret this story.

  3. I turned on DeSantis when he traveled overseas (to who knows where all) before throwing his hat in the ring – that told me he obtained foreign backing. Good governor, but like the Bush’s they know how to lie low and lower the boom at the most inconvenient times. Bushites are patient. Soetoro-ites are not. Trump throwing a kink in their timing on their agendas – catch up wasn’t very smart, it exposed them for ALL to see.

    • You’re going on a lot of assumptions there. Did you actually look into where he went? He’s said publicly that he went to Israel. He actually worked to get the process of moving our Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. DeSantis actually initiated that move, yet Trump took all the credit for that. DeSantis supports Israel, and is quite open about that. There’s nothing wrong with him going over there to discuss foreign affairs with them. There is absolutely NO evidence that he took “foreign backing”. You really should be prepared to present evidence before you make accusations like that, or else you are just spreading propaganda and SMEAR lies, which is not helpful to our country.

      You keep going on about the Bushes, yet DeSantis had nothing to do with the Bushes. That’s just more SMEAR stuff.

      So I highly recommend that you do some actual research on your own before you slander someone like this. Slander does not help our country. It actually hinders the truth from getting out, so that people will be less likely to pick the most qualified candidate just because of the LIES being spread about him.
