“Your right to earn a living should not be contingent upon COVID-19 shots”

Governor DeSantis just announced a special session to pass legislation to protect Floridians’ medical freedom and right to earn a living!  Florida is fighting back against unjust and unscientific mandates

9:13 AM · Oct 21, 2021

"When we were doing the last legislative session, it would have never occurred to me that we would be in the situation that we are with some of the insanity that’s raining down right now.”

Watch

Among the laws DeSantis wants to see passed:

  • A proposal making businesses liable for any medical harm that results from a mandatory vaccination

  • An addendum to the 2021 law protecting businesses from coronavirus-related liability if those businesses mandate vaccination for their employees

  • A measure allowing parents to collect attorney’s fees if they win a lawsuit against a school district for enacting illegal coronavirus restrictions

  • A law making it clear that it’s illegal for governments to mandate the vaccine for government employees

DeSantis:You have these aggressive mandates which could potentially lead to many people losing their jobs .. some have already been terminated. That’s something that cannot wait until the regular Legislative session next year. So we will be calling the Legislature back for a special session. We want to make sure individuals in Florida have their livelihoods and jobs protected.” The federal government has no right to dictate a person’s medical decisions, he said.

The Supply Chain Backlog - Made in California & Washington DC

. 19, 2021

Florida ports are taking on extra vessels and offering incentives to companies to send their goods through ports in the Sunshine State, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced at a press conference in Jacksonville, Fla. on Tuesday.

“We in Florida have the ability to help alleviate these logjams,” DeSantis said. “We’re here, we have capacity. And not only that, I’m proud to announce … that JAXPORT and some of the other ports are also stepping up even above and beyond by offering incentive packages to businesses who want to move their cargo through these ports.”

Leaders from ports around the state joined DeSantis to urge companies that “we want your business.” MORE

***********

The news declares that ships stacking up at the international shipping ports are the culprit behind the ever deepening logistical and supply line shortage affecting goods and services at stores nationwide, like the toilet paper shortage of 2020.

Joe Biden says his administration is “on it” to get those ships offloaded in short order. This is the same administration that is pressing forward with mandating the jab for truckers who traditionally travel alone or in driving pairs and pose no threat of spreading the C19 virus.

The news says the California port situation is caused by a driver shortage. It’s easy to blame it on these logistical truckers who travel millions of miles annually bringing the goods. Before we believe the news that has a track record of misinformation let us take a look at California laws affecting truckers.

California Truck Ban called AB 5:

  • Bans ALL trucks 2011 and older.

  • Prohibits Owner Operators (self-employed non-union drivers).

  • Trucks must become electric by 2035 or become illegal.

  • Trucks manufactured before 2010 that have not met the new Truck and Bus Regulation as of 2020 are automatically blocked from being registered at statewide DMVs.

  • New “health-based requirements” must be met before drivers are allowed to register his or her truck through the DMV.

California is the state that blocked plastic straws, not homeless campers on city streets statewide. California is the state that recently banned small lawnmower engines. California is no longer a business friendly state.

As a retired military truck driver (MORE) I would not recommend having my professional career cut short by idiotic PC rules, regulations, laws or mandates. I recommend relocation from California to a state where freedom, personal rights and professional opportunity abound. 

Florida Governor DeSantis said bring those backlogged ships to Florida and they will easily get offloaded and distributed.

NO vaccine mandates killing our jobs. NO 'Zuckerbucks' rigging our elections.

DeSantis has fined Leon County $3.5 million

for firing 14 employees who would not comply with the county's vaccine mandate.

In July, Leon County Administrator Vincent Long announced that all employees of Leon County would be required to be fully vaccinated and had to provide documentation by October 1. By October 2, 700 county employees had complied, but 14 employees had not and were fired on October 4. The fine covers all 714 violations at $5,000 per transgression.

"It is unacceptable that Leon County violated Florida law, infringed on current and former employees' medical privacy, and fired loyal public servants because of their personal health decisions,” Governor DeSantis said. "We will continue fighting for Floridians' rights and the Florida Department of Health will continue to enforce the law. We're going to stand up for Floridians' jobs, stand up for Floridians' livelihoods, and stand up for freedom.”

"Firing hard working employees over vaccine passports has real and lasting consequences,” Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo said. “It leads to resentment in the workplace, and loss of employment impacts individual and public health. Individuals have every right to choose how to best protect themselves and their families, and the Department will continue to enforce this law.”

It’s worth noting that while Leon County has flagrantly broken the law and received notice of their fine, other local Florida governments have reversed course. Last week, after alerting the City of Gainesville of their possible violation of the vaccination passport ban, the Florida Department of Health received a response indicating the City of Gainesville rescinded its employee vaccine mandate. This reversal also follows an Eighth Judicial Circuit Court temporary injunction preventing vaccine mandates for city employees.

DeSantis Bans Zuckerberg’s Election Meddling in Florida

new report (link) from The Federalist shows that Facebook's CEO funneled $419.5 million with strings attached to select election offices before the 2020 election.

Read -'The 2020 Election Wasn’t Stolen, It Was Bought By Mark Zuckerberg'

These “Zuck Bucks” were largely awarded based on partisanship to local and state offices, and demanded the promotion of universal mail-in voting, greater opportunities for “ballot curing,” and other vulnerable election tactics.

“So Zuckerberg, he spent over $400 million through these, quote, non-profits to, quote, help with election administration ... but what they would do is require certain things to be done - like mass mail balloting and ballot harvesting and they would focus on partisan voter turnout. That's totally unacceptable," said Gov. DeSantis

"We banned Zuckerbucks” .. Watch the press conference

Elections should be administered by these offices, not by private tech moguls coming in and basically commandeering the machinery of the elections." MORE

President Trump is focused on midterm elections and how to strengthen the Republican Party

President Trump At Iowa Rally

"We’re Going To Take America Back"

.

Quotes from President Trump at the Iowa Rally: 

  • On the border crisis: “We are becoming a dumping ground for very serious criminals. Biden is supposed to be protecting our country from foreign invasion. He said, “Come on in.”  Biden is paying contractors millions of dollars to NOT complete the wall. Is that incompetence or just bad ideology? And it wasn’t a whip by the way.”

  • On the Republican party: “We will always stand with law enforcement.”

  • On the corrupt 2020 election: “They rigged the election and now, based on the rigged election, they’re destroying our country.  Remember, this is not about me being robbed of an election. This is about the American people having their country taken away from them.  23,344 mail-in ballots came from people who no longer lived at that address. No chain of custody for 1.9 million votes.  2,500 duplicated ballots without missing serial numbers. Thousands and thousands of adjudicated blank mail-in ballots, ballots without signatures, and ballots from people who moved out of state. Files were deleted during the election in violation of federal law including a purge of the election management system. They used Covid in order to cheat.”

  • On Arizona and the AZ Attorney General: “Arizona was, in my opinion, the least corrupt of the swing states. It’s now in the hands of the AZ Attorney General and let’s hope that he does the right thing for the country.”

  • On Georgia: “There were 43,000 absentee ballot votes counted in DeKalb County Georgia that violated the chain of custody rules. There were many other infractions in Georgia, but Secretary of State Raffensberger and Brian Kemp hurt the country very badly, he’s afraid of Stacy Abrams. He refuses to take on the corrupt Democrats in the state of Georgia. I know it’s fraught with danger but you have to do it for this country.”

  • On the Giant Illegal Ballot Harvesting Operation: “A new investigation alleges a gigantic illegal ballot harvesting operation involving large numbers of people in the state of Georgia and many other places.”

  • On Stacey Abrams: “They do whatever she says, pretty amazing. I’d like to run against Stacey Abrams.”

  • On Pennsylvania: “Hopefully the people of Pennsylvania are angry. This (voter fraud) cannot be allowed to happen and will not allow the Republican majority to be reelected if they don’t get to the bottom of the trash. Thousands of voters reported receiving at least two ballots in the mail without requesting them. Thousands were complaining they were not allowed to vote becuase, they were told, they already voted. Some walked out crying. There has never been anything like this that has happened in our country before.”

  • On Philadelphia: “The US Attorney of Philadelphia said, ‘In writing, I was told not to do anything, not to pursue it (the election fraud)’.”

  • On Bellwether States: “In Michigan the legislature found that over 300,000 voters were listed even though they hadn’t voted in over 20 years. I won 18 out of 19 bellwether states.  No other president has ever done that.”

***********

What follows is adapted from three interviews of President Donald Trump for Mollie Hemingway’s latest book Rigged: How The Media, Big Tech, and the Democrats Seized Our Elections,” out October 12.

"I was curious about how he viewed his legacy, but he wasn’t interested in talking about anything more than two years out .. focused on midterm elections and how to strengthen the Republican Party." 

We discussed what went well in the 2020 campaign and what didn’t, along with his view that he’d done what was necessary to win in a free and fair fight. “It hurts to lose less than to win and have it taken away,” he said. When talking about the 2020 election, Trump liked to talk about fraud, but the truth of what happened was so much worse. 

In early February, political reporter and Nancy Pelosi biographer Molly Ball published a Time magazine article detailing how, as she put it, “a well-funded cabal of powerful people", ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of information” had rigged the election to secure a Biden victory.

While she was whitewashing what the cabal had done – asserting unconvincingly that it wasn’t rigging but “fortifying” — she revealed that these powerful elites, funded by Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg, had been able to embed left-wing activists into election offices to assist Democrats with their get-out-the-vote efforts and the Democrats’ push for mail-in balloting.

My book explains, among other things, how Zuckerberg spent hundreds of millions of dollars targeting Democrat counties in ways that significantly drove up Biden’s margin, enabling his victory. The funds weren’t for campaign spending, mind you, but for a targeted private takeover of the government administration of election operations.

Trump knew also that the global pandemic had helped Democrats take over the administration of elections, “Well, they used COVID to rig the election." he said. Trump understood the big picture problems with the 2020 election better than many of his critics. He knew that many of the changes that had been forced through states in 2020 were unconstitutional.

“The constitution of the United States says you cannot change any of your rules, regulations, or anything else, unless you go through the state legislatures,” he said, referring to Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution, which leaves the power to the state legislature to make the election laws."

Gov. DeSantis Will Defend Floridians from Biden Regime's Abuse of Power

The National Education Association, the American Federation of Teachers (and others) have combined forces with the federal government to oppress, threaten and intimidate parents in an attempt to stop them from exercising their rights, as secured by the Constitution. 

Read: Evidence of Biden WH Colluding to Silence America's Parents

So who raises children - Parents or the government?

Biden's Attorney General, Merrick Garland, has instructed the FBI to mobilize against parents who oppose critical race theory in public schools, citing "threats." The letter follows the National School Board Association's request to classify protests as "domestic terrorism." READ MORE

From liberalism’s perverse perspective, the warping of children comes not from an obscene pop culture or a rotten public school system, but from the pesky control of parents. That’s why the Biden administration is treating concerned mothers and fathers as if they’re enemies of the state. The Orwellian memo from Attorney General Merrick Garland in defense of public school boards stems from the view that public schools should have to right to miseducate children with impunity, free of any parental oversight. READ MORE

AG Merrick Garland Sics the FBI on Parents Opposing Critical Race Theory

Ron DeSantis @GovRonDeSantis 

"Attorney General Garland is weaponizing the DOJ by using the FBI to pursue concerned parents and silence them through intimidation. Florida will defend the free speech rights of its citizens and will not allow federal agents to squelch dissent." Read More

"Disagreement is not harassment. Protest is not terrorism, unless it involves rioting, looting, and assault, like some of the left-wing protests of summer 2020. Again, all of those actions are crimes in Florida and will be prosecuted, regardless of political context." Read More

Gov. DeSantis Takes Action to Protect Floridians from Biden's Border Crisis

Since Joe Biden took office the Border Patrol has released nearly a quarter million illegal aliens into the U.S. In July alone the number of illegal aliens who were apprehended and released by the Border Patrol was a staggering 60,607. By contrast, in the last full month of the Trump Administration, only 17 in this category were released.

  • Governor Ron DeSantis was joined by Attorney General Ashley Moody to outline three major steps being taken to protect Floridians from the open-border chaos that has been created by the Biden administration. 

  • First, Governor DeSantis issued Executive Order 21-223 to prohibit all Florida agencies under the purview of the Governor from facilitating illegal immigration into Florida, unless otherwise required by federal or state law, and require the collection of information from state officials on the scope and costs of illegal immigration in Florida.
  • Second, Governor DeSantis announced the appointment of Larry Keefe, former U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Florida, as Florida’s Public Safety Czar to ensure the actions directed by the executive order are carried out.  
  • Third, Governor DeSantis and Attorney General Moody announced that Florida has filed suit against the Biden Administration, challenging the legality of its “catch and release” policy. 

Governor DeSantis said: "This executive order makes it clear that Florida resources will not be used to prop up the failed open border agenda enacted by this administration."


Attorney General Ashley Moody said: “The Biden Administration’s brazen disregard for federal immigration law is jeopardizing the safety and security of our state and nation, all while costing Florida taxpayers. Biden’s lax border policy is an open invitation to dangerous criminals, human traffickers and drug traffickers to enter the United States—creating a crisis at the Southern Border like we have never seen.” MORE

Ron DeSantis is America’s awesome ‘shadow president’

In the Westminster parliamentary system of government, used in Britain and elsewhere, the opposition forms a shadow cabinet: A group of senior opposition-party members takes responsibility for issues facing various government departments. So there might be a shadow defense minister, who focuses on military issues, and the group might put together a “shadow budget.”

None of these activities has any direct impact on the actual Cabinet; the shadow government has no executive power. But it does provide a contrast to the ruling government. It also cultivates people with some expertise, ready to take over the various offices when political power shifts.

America doesn’t use this system, but in a very real way we nonetheless have a shadow president in DeSantis.

Unlike a British shadow government, DeSantis has real executive power of his own — not in the federal government, but in his capacity as governor of America’s third most populous state. And he has been doing an excellent job of drawing contrasts between his way and the approach taken by the Biden-Harris administration.

Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) will no doubt try hard to take DeSantis down. But the more attention they focus on him, the more he will stand as a shadow president, showing Americans what someone else might do in Biden’s place.

“While governors are doing what we can, our Constitution requires that the President must faithfully execute the immigration laws passed by Congress. Not only has the federal government created a crisis, it has left our states to deal with challenges that only the federal government has a duty to solve.” More 

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas met privately with Border Patrol agents in Texas (link) and said in leaked audio that the border crisis is "unsustainable" and "we're going to lose" if "borders are the first line of defense." 

"A couple of days ago I was down in Mexico, and I said look, you know, if, if our borders are the first line of defense, we're going to lose and this is unsustainable," Mayorkas said Thursday, according to the audio obtained by Fox News' Bill Melugin through a Border Patrol source.

Political Retribution: Joe Biden moves to control Monoclonal Antibody (mAb) inventories.

On Monday, September 13, the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services transitioned from a direct ordering process (of mAb inventory) to a state/territory distribution system - LINK

As the administration of Joe Biden steps in to take control over Monoclonal Antibody (mAb) inventories and distribution, blocks red states from receiving the treatment, and makes grand pronouncements about controlling supply based on “equity”, the cowed White House press corps sits silently .. except for Newsmax reporter Emerald Robinson

WATCH Jennifer Psaki lie, twist, obfuscate and manipulate the discussion in an attempt to defend an indefensible position when questioned by Robinson about Biden’s recent moves to punish Florida:

Keep in mind Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was initially blasted by progressives, the media writ large and the White House for his support of Monoclonal Antibody treatment. As soon as they noticed the approach was working, HHS moved to block the DeSantis mAb program by taking control of the inventory.

On Thurs. 9/16, Gov. DeSantis responds directly to the White House effort to kill Florida residents by withholding previously agreed shipments of Monoclonal Antibodies. WATCH

DeSantis outlined the issues Florida is facing after the Biden administration instructed the federal offices of HHS to punish the successful therapy and recovery efforts of the sunshine state healthcare system. He outlines the purchase agreement that Biden intentionally violated and also the issues created by the federal government now blocking direct purchasing of treatment from the manufacturer.

Additionally, the governor noted he has held meetings with ¹GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) to purchase mAb shipments directly from the second source manufacturer in order to work around the roadblocks being presented by the Biden administration.  Gov. DeSantis reaffirmed his commitment to stand in the way, and not allow Joe Biden to kill Americans just because he doesn’t like their politics.
