If Donald Trump doesn’t run in 2024 then Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis would be the next best thing as he is conservative from his core and he says what he means and means what he said.
During an interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham on Thursday, DeSantis gave little room for doubt about how he thinks of the use of the term “systemic racism” and the racist “critical race theory” that the Marxists are trying to teach America’s children in schools. The Florida governor dismissed both as racist Marxist nonsense.
Ingraham was doing a “Red State Trailblazers” town hall to feature Republican governors who defied the lies of Dr. Anthony Fauci, President Joe Biden, and the entire Fake News industry over the COVID pandemic, which isn’t even a pandemic anymore, and reopened their states. The guests included DeSantis, Governor Greg Abbott of Texas, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, Governor Tate Reeves of Mississippi, and Governor Pete Ricketts from Nebraska.
Ingraham asked the Florida governor if he thought the United States is a systemically racist country. DeSantis
Ingraham asked DeSantis if he believed that the United States is a systemically racist country, to which he unashamedly responded, “Well, it’s a bunch of horse manure. I mean, give me a break.”
“This country has had more opportunity for more people than any country in the history of the world and it doesn’t matter where you trace your ancestry from,” DeSantis said, adding, “We’ve had people that have been able to succeed.”
DeSantis went on to expose critical race theory.
“And here’s the problem with things like critical race theory that they’re peddling,” DeSantis said. “They’re basically saying all our institutions are bankrupt, and they’re, they’re illegitimate. How do you have a society if everything in your society is illegitimate?”
The answer is you can’t. DeSantis was spot on.
In March, DeSantis said that he would purge critical race theory from public schools in Florida because critical race theory’s ideology isn’t worth “one red cent of taxpayer money.”
“Let me be clear, there’s no room in our classrooms for things like critical race theory,” DeSantis said. “Teaching kids to hate their country and to hate each other is not worth one red cent of taxpayer money. So we will invest in actual, solid, true curriculum and we will be a leader in the development and implementation of a world-class civics education.”

Critical race theory and systemic racism are terms used to blame the failures of black people when an actual racist is nowhere to be found to blame the failure on. They used to call it “institutional racism.”
DeSantis was also asked about biological women’s sports being protected from progressive yahoos trying to force people suffering from a mental illness to ruin sports for girls and women.
“I have a 4-year-old daughter and a 1-year-old daughter, and they’re very athletic,” he said. “And we want to have opportunities for our girls. They deserve an even playing field. And that’s what we’re doing.”
For liberals reading this, what we mean when we saying we want our girls to have opportunities that are taken away from them with the transgender movement we’re talking about girls losing athletic scholarships because biological males are beating them in sports when they shouldn’t be allowed to compete in the first place. I mean, how crazy is our society now?
The Florida governor has said he will sign the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act, which will rightfully block males from competing on women’s school sports teams.
DeSantis also banned vaccine passports in The Sunshine State.
“I’m proud to be the first I think, elected official in the country, certainly statewide or governor to say, we’re not having vaccine passports in the State of Florida,” DeSantis said. “And not just saying government can’t make you, private businesses can’t make you. Because here’s the thing, you have a right to participate in society, without them asking you to divulge this type of health information, but just to go to a movie, just to go to a ballgame.”
Former President Donald Trump earlier this week said he may run again in 2024 and that he would “certainly” consider Ron DeSantis as his running mate. That would be a powerhouse team!
“He is a friend of mine. Certainly, Ron would be considered,” Trump said. “I endorsed Ron, and after I endorsed him, he took off like a rocket ship. He’s done a great job as governor. They like that. I’m just saying what I read and you read. They love that ticket.”
…Iran also is demonstrating, through the launch of ballistic missiles, its ability to make long-range rockets, and it is conducting shows of conventional military strength.
It further attacked U.S. targets in Iraq using Shiite militias, and Saudi and Gulf targets using Yemeni Houthi militia. Tehran also is pressuring the Taliban in Afghanistan to destroy the peace agreement it reached with the Trump administration.
Finally, Iran has been seizing oil tankers and arresting Western nationals.
Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) concluded his prayer to opening the 117th Congress by saying “amen and a woman” on Sunday. Cleaver chose this ending to better comply with a committee’s decision to eliminate all gendered words from use in the house and to favor gender-neutral terms.
Cleaver’s unconventional and – quite frankly – ridiculous ending sparked a frenzy on social media, with some supporting the congressman for his word choice, while others claimed his word choice introduced a whole new meaning to the word “stupidity.”
Which of course, it is.
“Amen” is a word that means “so be it,” and is used in prayers as a closing remark to ask for the contents of a believer’s prayer to be accomplished (in Jesus’ name, so be it).
This isn’t rocket-science. Amen is even used in common speech by people who are not dedicated Christians when they agree with something in general. The average person should at least have a general sense of what “amen” means. It has no gender significance whatsoever despite its spelling.
I would suspect the congressman knew this as well, but because he chose to focus more on advancing an agenda than adhering to common sense, he chose to end his prayer in a fashion both comical and disheartening.
Cleaver did this in an attempt to continue to push a politically-correct agenda that wants to radically redefine gender, one of the most basic characteristics of our identities as humans.
Additionally, Cleaver’s prayer attacked one of the most sacred aspects of the Christian faith. Professing Christians should not use prayer as a way to support an agenda that hates God’s creation of the genders. But Cleaver’s use of words further blurs the line for everyone watching his statement about what Christians believe about gender and prayer.
Prayer is not something to be trifled with, much less on the national stage in front of millions of viewers. Cleaver’s prayer is the latest attack of the left on Christianity and must be counteracted with true prayer form Christians across the country.
In 2016, some strange things happened, well for those of us who believe in leaving it all out of the field. The contrast between Hillary Clinton and Donald J Trump leading up to the election is almost unmeasurable.
A few weeks out from the presidential election, national polls had Hillary Clinton leading by large numbers. Donald Trump was flying around the swing states doing 2-3 huge rallies daily.
There were rumors and videos of Hillary’s declining physical health, as she left the campaign trail not visit swing states like Michigan, Wisconsin, and only did a last-minute concert in Philadelphia, PA. President Trump, in comparison, held his last rally, with 32,000 plus supporters, at 1 AM on election day.
In the end, the heir apparent, lost the election.
Here we are, a few weeks out from the 2020 presidential election, and Joe Biden is doing the same things Hillary did. I think they call this insanity. Doing the same things over and over, yet expecting different results. In contrast President Trump, who just defeated CV-19, is out doing rallies in the swing states.
Like Hillary, Joe Biden is showing physical decline, especially cognitive, has minimal stamina, a reliance of teleprompters, and is not holding rallies in WI, MI, or PA, but is taking a lot of time off. I know Joe spoke to a few dozen people at a few events, but then had to get back into his basement.
Reports are out that Joe is spending time in an oxygen chamber, taking youth enhancing medications and trying to learn enough talking points to get through the next day. Either way, it’s not working.
While Joe is at home napping, his presidential campaign warned that the national poll numbers were “inflated” and that their internal polls showed the race to be much closer than is being reported.
Jen O’Malley Dillon made the comments during a grassroots summit videoconference to supporters on Friday.
Video of the event is no longer available but her comments were documented by New York Times reporter Shane Goldmacher on Twitter.
Unless there are millions of illegal votes cast and /or Trump’s supporters’ ballots destroyed, the odds of a 2016 election blowout, Electoral College, are skyrocketing as the scenario in 2020 is almost identically mirroring 2016.
President Trump’s base is turning out in huge numbers, the enthusiasm gap between the two parities is in Trump’s category and voter registration in key states for the GOP is way up.
The remaining variable in Silicon Valley. How many votes can they influence by only reporting positive stories for Biden and negative for President Trump.
All I can say is VOTE ASAP. The lines will be huge on November 3rd, so if you can get in before then during early voting, do you best to make your vote count.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is “governing” Americas’s largest city, as though he is not accountable to anyone, and the truth is, he really doesn’t.
He put in place a stay at home order, then went to a park with his wife, protected by security detail.
He told NYC the CV-19 would not be an issue for their city encouraging everyone to shop, dine, and drink like they always had.
Now the Big Apple’s progressive mayor, who cut the police budget 1 Billion dollars, is assigning 27 NYPD officers to guard a BLM mural! Yes, don’t protect the people, but protect the mural created by this domestic terrorist group.
You’ve really got to hand it to New York Mayor Bill de Blasio. As violent crime goes out of control in the Big Apple, de Blasio, or as radio talk show host Mark Levin calls him, “de Commie-o,” at least has his “priorities” straight.
He has directed that 27 police officers daily be assigned to protect the Black Lives Matter “mural” outside of Trump Tower.
Mural or graffiti? We’ll let you decide.
The Black Lives Matter street mural in front of Trump Tower has been vandalized three times in one week, according to the NYPD. The latest incident occurred Saturday afternoon, when two women were arrested after they were seen pouring paint on the mural. https://t.co/2hMPMjF3e1
If there was a competition for the worst mayor in the United States, it would be a tough competition. You have Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, who ordered Chicagoans to stay at home during the height of the coronavirus pandemic, then was seen out getting her hair cut.
We then have Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti who told residents of his city that they could be in the “wet sand” at beaches but not the “dry sand” or they would be arrested.
It is an interesting dichotomy actually. De Blasio seems more interested in protecting the so-called “brand” of Black Lives Matter than actual black lives themselves. Otherwise, the 27 officers dedicated daily to protecting a bit of street paint would be directed toward actually protecting black lives, many of which have been lost with the latest spike in murders.
Former New York City police commissioner Bernard Kerik tweeted:
It’s true. I was just there and spoke to the cops, they say they are getting paid to baby sit paint, and not happy about it.@BernardKerik
World history has shown that where there is no Law and Order, in larger population groups, the culture breaks down and the “bad guys” win. New York is a prime example; Where crime, shootings, and death numbers have skyrocketed since the announcement of NYC cutting one Billion dollars from their police budget and re-assigning all their plain-clothed police officers embedded in areas with the highest number of crimes.
Some politicians in NY are speaking out against the insane movement to de-fund local police departments. NY Republican Congresswoman Elise Stefanik made an aggressive point that de-funding the police will only hurt the very communities they’re trying to protect.
In an interview with Fox and Friends, Stefanik stood with America’s police:
“Our police are needed in the communities that are being hurt the most right now, where you are seeing the most violence. So, we need to defend the police, not defund the police..And, really look at how we can have positive change and that’s by increasing our training, that’s by increasing our community outreach. Not turning our backs on hardworking law enforcement.”
The 36-year-old U.S. Representative was the youngest person ever elected to Congress in 2015 when she was 30. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortex beat that record, while Stefanik is still the youngest Republican to have ever been elected to Congress.
Stefanik referenced the JUSTICE Act, which Senate Democrats blocked from passing, as one way to create change and healing with the law enforcement-citizen relationship. The JUSTICE Act, which was spearheaded by Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.), the only black Republican in the Senate, was a productive means of bringing about change without going to destructive means of defunding our law enforcement.
Democrat leaders from across the country are caving to uninformed emotional cries from the social justice warrior-types and are actually considering defunding their police departments.
The passionate please come in the midst of national unrest following the death of George Floyd and other black deaths at the hands of police, justified and unjustified.
Stefanik acknowledged that change is necessary but that racism has gone both ways and defunding the police is not the remedy:
“You know, there has been footage of the just horrible, horrible statements made to our African-American law enforcement officers…There is no tolerance for racism in this country and we absolutely need to root out bad actors like the case of George Floyd’s murderers. But, we shouldn’t be turning our backs on police which unfortunately we are seeing in New York City today,” she said.
American Civics traditionally requires that our elected officials are competent, honorable transparent with a form of fiduciary responsibility to their constituents.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, U.S. Representative for New York’s 14th congressional district, doesn’t meet any of the aforementioned qualities but instead acts like a teenager, spouting out whatever comes to he mind.
For the past 18 months, she has built up quite the “video reel” of her blunders and even she even managed to prevent Amazon from bringing thousands of jobs to her district and billions of dollars of investment into the community.
Her latest crusade has been to need to defend the police and establish a new form of city policing. Since NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio, reduced the NYPD budget 1 Billion dollars and implemented heavy restriction of what the police can and can’t do when dealing with criminals, and the police commissioner removed his neighbor, plain-clothed officers, off the streets, the crime stats have gone through the roof. A direct correlation between criminals and law enforcement. Less Law Enforcement, more criminal activity.
No for AOC, she brilliantly figured our the real reason crimes are way up.
We finally know why crime is soaring in New York City.
“Um, maybe it’s the fact that unemployment provisions have not been given to everyone,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed. “Maybe it’s because the fact that people haven’t — some people still haven’t gotten their stimulus checks yet.”
Apparently, in Ocasio-Cortez’s world, anyway, these hungry bread-stealers are heavily armed. Shootings in New York City have soared by 205% in the weeks since NYPD disbanded its anti-crime unit of plainclothes cops, which occurred on June 15.
During the final two weeks of June, three times as many shootings occurred in New York City as there were during the same period in 2019, according to the New York Post. Between June 15 and July 2, there were 116 shootings in the city, compared to just 38 during the same two-week period last year. A total of 157 New Yorkers were wounded in gunfire this year, compared to just 57 wounded in the period in 2019.
Chalk up another “I am clueless” video for AOC’s archives. No, it’s not people out looking for bread, it is the fact that criminals know the police can’t and some will not do much about smaller crimes. anymore. In some areas, with the reduction in police presence, the hardened criminals are once again taking over the streets.
Please voters in New York’s 14th congressional district, put AOC out her misery, and ours too, and elect ANYONE to replace her, preferably a conservative.
Ilhan Omar is calling for the dismantling of the entire United States economy and the political system.
When she says dismantle the economy, she is talking about socialism and communism. But neither system has ever had a strong middle class. You have the elite and the poor.
Liberals will always say that it’s only because it has never been tried correctly. The fact of the matter is there is no right way to run either.
Money for the poor is so scarce that they opt to buy cheap Chinese products. US manufacturing would die.
Energy prices will skyrocket due to the Green New Deal that will stop all production of fossil fuels. And this country would become a tempting target because the Democrats will starve the military and other countries would love to have our oil and gas reserves.
As far as the political system is concerned, she is probably talking about a one-party system like all totalitarian regimes employ. And you can guess what party that will be.
It will be a far-leftist party that does not allow dissent and will jail those who oppose them either as racists or as hate speech violators.
The debate over election mail-in-ballots is still ongoing. And I love what Barr said, “I think if we do adopt programs of mail-in, that will be an area which they (Democratic Party) will exploit. And I think you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure that one out.”
From Epoch Times
Attorney General William Barr has reiterated his concerns over the security of mail-in ballots, saying that elections that are conducted predominately through vote-by-mail could open up “many occasions for fraud … that cannot be policed.”
“I think there’s a range of concerns about mail-in ballots. And let me just clarify here. I’m not talking about a mail-in ballot for a limited number of cases where somebody, you know, is going to be traveling around the world, and the way that the state has provided for that is, you mail in your ballot,” Barr told NPR during an interview on Thursday.
“I’m talking about a comprehensive rule where all the ballots are essentially mail-in, and there’s so many occasions for fraud there that cannot be policed,” he added.
Barr’s comments echo President Donald Trump’s stance on the issue, which has been widely disputed by his critics. The issue of voter fraud, which has gained more media attention in recent years, is a highly contentious issue that often falls within political ideological lines.
Trump has rebuked the idea of the blanket expansion of mail-in voting, and has often called on Republican lawmakers to push against calls for widespread mail-in voting. Democrats, on the other hand, argue that mail-in voting options are necessary in order for voters to comply with public health recommendations to reduce gatherings due to the pandemic.
Barr did not give any specific examples of fraud that led to his concerns but noted that he was concerned about the possibility that ballots could be counterfeited, adding that the ballots are “pretty primitive.”
He also believes that mail-in voting could be targeted by foreign countries that “want to sow discord in the United States by undermining confidence in the results of the election.”
“I think if we do adopt programs of mail-in, that will be an area which they will exploit. And I think you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure that one out,” Barr said.
The conservative Heritage Foundation maintains a database that provides a sampling of election fraud cases from across the United States. The database, which contains 1,285 proven instances of fraud, is not comprehensive, the foundation said.
Just last week in New Jersey Attorney announced voting fraud charges against Councilman Michael Jackson, 3rd Ward Council-Elect Alex Mendez and two other men, weeks after the May 12 local election in which the Passaic County Board of Elections decided not to count 800 city ballots found scattered across different municipalities. against a city councilman and a council-elect.
Both Jackson, 48, and Mendez, 45, were charged with fraud in casting mail-in votes, unauthorized possession of ballots, tampering with public records and falsifying or tampering with records, according to the statement. Mendez was additionally charged with election fraud and false registration or transfer.
The Democratic Party has said there are no reliable instances of mail-in-ballot fraud, but they are just saying that to their base who believes anything they say.
Even Nadler admitted in 2004 that “Paper ballots are extremely susceptible to fraud.”
And if those that commit voter fraud did it 16 years ago you can bet they are even better at it today.
As Barr said, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that mail-in-ballots are a bad idea. Especially in a polarized election like this one will be.
