Mike “Pusillanimous” Pence considering a 2024 run against Donald “Treacherous” Trump

Ever since the 2020 election, Mike “Pusillanimous” Pence has been desperately searching for ways to recapture the relevance he once held with conservatives but surrendered long ago — even before he went to work for Donald “Treacherous” Trump — and he is apparently considering a 2024 run against the twice-impeached former president to do so.

Pence made the announcement in a New York Times interview published yesterday but conducted last month:

For months, former Vice President Mike Pence has been edging away from his alliance of convenience with former President Donald J. Trump.

After four years of service bordering on subservience, the increasingly emboldened Mr. Pence is seeking to reintroduce himself to Republican voters ahead of a potential presidential bid by setting himself apart from what many in the G.O.P. see as the worst impulses of Mr. Trump. He’s among a small group in his party considering a run in 2024 no matter what Mr. Trump decides.

In an interview before a speech last month in Iowa, Mr. Pence pointedly declined to rule out running even if Mr. Trump also enters the 2024 primary. “We’ll go where we’re called,” Mr. Pence said, explaining that he and his wife would act on prayer. “That’s the way Karen and I have always approached these things.”

Recalling the gratitude he gets from resisting Mr. Trump’s demands that he block Congress from affirming President Biden’s victory, he said: “I have been very moved traveling around the country how much people have made a point to express appreciation, it has been very humbling to me.”

Yet in the same interview, he recalled spending “five years in the foxhole” with Mr. Trump, noting that he was “incredibly proud of the record,” before giving a dinner speech trumpeting the “Trump-Pence” administration multiple times. (Emphasis mine)

The New York Times nailed it when it called Pence’s term as Trump’s right-hand man “four years of service bordering on subservience” because that describes Pence’s entire political career.

Heading into 2016, Pence was on the cusp of losing his reelection as Indiana governor after abandoning his so-called conservative values on issues like Obamacare expansion and religious freedom.

In the days following passage of the state Religious Freedom Restoration Act by the Indiana legislature — a bill modeled after the national RFRA and signed into law by Governor Mike Pence in 2015 — the Gay Mafia unleashed numerous threats of violence and arson against the owners of a tiny pizzeria in the state for expressing their opposition to homosexual marriage.

The owners, in fear for their lives, were forced to close temporarily but were saved by a GoFundMe campaign led by Dana Loesch. Still, there lives were changed forever for exercising the right to practice their religious beliefs.

Mike “Pusillanimous” Pence’s response to this homosexual thuggery was to surrender to their demands instead of defending the law he signed by pushing for a “fix” to the Indiana RFRA that essentially neutered the law — something he should know about since he lacked the balls to stick to his principles.

Pence claimed that his fix still maintained religious liberty in Indiana, but that was a lie because it made it illegal for Christian businesses to use the law to decline offering services for homosexual weddings. Christian business owners (florists, bakers, caterers, and others) would be forced to provide service for religious ceremonies that go against their “deeply held religious beliefs.” It carved out exemptions for churches, ministers, and overtly religious organizations, but not for Christians running a for-profit business.

When Treacherous Trump selected Pusillanimous Pence to be his vice president, conservatives called the pick proof-positive that America would be spared from The Donald’s extensive history as a NY Liberal. Additionally, evangelical Christians convinced themselves that Pence’s so-called “Christian conservatism” would make him the voice of reason in the new administration, thus making it easier for them to ignore their consciences and cast their vote for Trump.

Instead, Pence’s selection a Trump’s running mate only proved that he’s a fraud and an opportunist interested in nothing more than protecting his personal political fortunes; willing to use his faith as a crutch of convenience whenever he cripples himself with his compromising character.

Only days into his gig as vice president, Pusillanimous Pence made an appearance on ABC’s This Week and surrendered every vestige of what little integrity he may have possessed prior to getting the job. When the interview turned to issues important to Christian conservatives, Pence defended Trump’s pro-LGBT decision — actually, it was Ivanka’s — to let stand an Obama Executive Order that legalized discrimination against Christian business owners who would like to provide goods and services to the government, but not at the expense of compromising their religious beliefs.

“I think throughout the campaign, President Trump made it clear that discrimination would have no place in our administration. I mean, he was the very first Republican nominee to mention the LGBTQ community at our Republican National Convention and was applauded for it. And I was there applauding with him” (Emphasis mine)

The late, great Andrew Breitbart held firmly to the belief that “Politics is downstream from culture,” and he used that idea to build a platform to battle the left-leaning cultural bias prevalent in Hollywood and the media. As a conservative, he was also making the point that politics is a reflection of cultural beliefs, and that conservatives were losing the political battle because they were unwilling to fight the cultural battle while the Far-Left was not only fighting it, they were taking no prisoners.

Mike “Pusillanimous” Pence is Exhibit A of what Andrew was talking about, which is why he’s not only unsuitable to run against Donald “Treacherous” Trump in 2024, but he’s also unsuitable to hold any public office at any level ever again.

The conservative movement has been punished enough with the likes of Trump and Pence, and both of these frauds should be soundly rejected in 2024.
