Republican Rep. Mike Waltz has introduced a resolution urging the U.S. to boycott the 2022 Winter Olympic Games in Beijing if they are not moved, saying the U.S. "cannot in good conscience" have American athletes celebrating an event hosted by "a brutal dictatorship" and warning that China's Communist Party would be "emboldened by the legitimacy conferred by the Olympics."
Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., earlier the month also introduced a resolution in the Senate, calling on the International Olympic Committee to move the 2022 Winter Olympics out of China and rebid it to another country unless Beijing "immediately addresses its egregious and numerous violations of human rights." Scott has been calling for the IOC to move the games from Beijing for over a year.
"Think about what we've gone through in the last year as a country – what it is doing to our children, to our elderly, to our families in terms of the coronavirus," Waltz told Fox News, saying it is "indisputable at this point that the Chinese Communist Party covered" the virus up.
"So you have that, on top of, what is increasingly coming to light a genocide – forced labor, internment," Waltz continued. "To see the American flag and to see American athletes in Beijing celebrating what is the worst of the worst authoritarian regimes right now – I can’t imagine it."
"It makes me sick to think of the Olympics – in just 11 months – being celebrated in Beijing after all of that."
Waltz added that his resolution is "focused on the CCP." "There is no issue with the amazing culture and long history of the Chinese people. They are being brutalized by the Chinese government."

“The biggest winner I think of this whole impeachment trial is Lara Trump” - Sen. Lindsey Graham
“Lara knows North Carolina and North Carolina knows her. If she decides to run, she’d bring an unmatched ability to connect with voters, while also being able to raise the money necessary to compete in a close election.”
Lara Trump is a native of Wilmington, North Carolina, who describes herself in her Twitter profile as an “NC girl in NYC.” She is married to Eric Trump, the middle son of former President Donald Trump; the couple has two children.
“If Lara decides to run, she will trample the competition in a Republican primary. It won’t be close,” a former Trump White House official told The Epoch Times. “And as far as the general goes, remember North Carolina is a state that former President Trump won twice, and Lara probably has room to grow that support with independents who value a softer tone.”

MARCH 11, 1947 – FEBRUARY 13, 2019
On Wednesday, February 10, 2021, the House Criminal Justice Committee heard and PASSED HB-259
HB-259 is a bill to restore the private property rights of religious institutions.
Rep Webster Barnaby stood up vocally for Volusia County and for America today when he voted YES on the vote for firearms at churches. The Bill, HB #259, will allow licensed holders to carry on church property just like on other private property , unless a specific church prohibits it. The law as it reads today says if you have a school on the church property, firearms are prohibited; and that would include Saturdays and Sundays when school isn’t even in session.
Barnaby rose in support of this bill and self identified himself as a minister of the gospel and a proud member of the NRA. He felt it important to recognize that our right to keep and bear arms, as the Constitution says, “SHALL NOT be infringed”.
HB #259 will now head to the next committee.
Rep Elizabeth Fetterhoff, also from Volusia County, is on the same committee and also voted YES.

DeSantis .."It's a political attack"
Click on image to Watch
Yesterday it was widely reported the JoeBama administration was considering federal intervention to restrict travel into and out-of Florida. Essentially a travel ban.
Florida Governor DeSantis discussed the position of his state during a segment of a COVID update press conference from Port Charlotte, Florida.
“Restricting the right of Americans to travel freely throughout our country while allowing illegal aliens to pour across the southern border unmolested would be a ridiculous but very damaging farce.”
Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) said in a statement Monday the Democrats’ $1.9 trillion coronavirus proposal amounts to nothing more than payback to liberal states that helped Democrats during the recent elections.
Scott, chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), said Democrats say the state and local aid would serve as a “payback” for their friends who aided their campaigns during the 2020 elections:
"The Democrats have made it blatantly obvious that this isn’t about helping people – it’s a payback to their friends for helping with their campaigns. Less than two weeks into the Biden Administration and Democrats have already completely abandoned their inauthentic calls for ‘unity’ and ‘bipartisanship’ just to push through massive spending and get tax dollars to their buddies. You can’t make this stuff up. These wasteful states just have their hand out to the federal government in hopes that American taxpayers will plug the long-standing holes in their budgets and pension systems created by decades of mismanagement and the poor decisions of failed politicians."
“That’s not fair to Floridians and all the states around the country that have been working hard to protect taxpayer dollars,” he added. “We can’t let it happen.”

Tim Tebow gave his personal take on abortion during the annual March for Life Rally.
Tebow told a story about how his mother, who was then a missionary in the Philippines, was advised to have an abortion while she was pregnant with Tebow. He said medical experts believed either Tebow or his mother would not make it.
“‘Out of all my years, this is the greatest miracle that I’ve ever seen because I have no idea how he survived,'” Tebow said the doctor explained. “‘The placenta is not even attached and there’s so many different issues. This is a miracle baby. Here is your baby, Mrs. Tebow.'”
Tebow said if his mother had not trusted God and chose not to give the pregnancy a chance, he would not be alive today.
