- "Flat-Out Criminal Fraud"
“The news coming out of Georgia is beyond incredible. The hand recount in Fulton County was a total fraud! They stuffed the ballot box—and got caught. We will lose our Country if this is allowed to stand.”
Chairman Paul Deering administered the oath of office to ten newly elected Precinct Committeemen and Committeewoman at the July meeting of the Republican Executive Committee of Volusia County. Our membership has swelled to more than 150 members, the largest in Volusia GOP history.

It was nice. Actually, it was glorious. What was the “it” of which I speak? .. it was my journey to real America – a land before masks where human beings shake hands. I got the hell out of the Washington, DC, area, and spent a week in Michigan.
On the way to Michigan, we spent the night in Sandusky, Ohio, and got our first taste of life beyond the confines of paranoia and overreaction. No one in the hotel wore a mask. It didn’t even feel like the staff had one handy, just in case the boss showed up, or something. It was just people smiling and talking, conducting life.
The next day, we had breakfast with a friend of mine the public knows as “Joe the Plumber.” Yes, the real guy. We met back in 2008 and remain friends. His house is on the way and it was a good chance to catch up. No masks, just handshakes and hugs. It was great to see our kids playing together, able to breathe, while we and our wives caught up. It was…normal.
A trip to Mackinac Island sealed the deal. It’s traditionally tough to get on the island in summer, and by “tough” I mean crowded. We only went over for the day, to get a sense of how the economy was recovering – a holiday weekend with great weather. It was actually quite nice. The same was true for Traverse City, another tourist Mecca, especially during the National Cherry Festival.
It still exists, that real America .. just real people with jobs and families simply going about their business the way adults always have, at least before last year.
I don’t know how that will translate when it comes to voting next year or in three years, but every political sign I saw, and I mean every single one, was a Trump sign still up and clearly maintained.
Real America is back.

. OAN Newsroom - Friday, July 9, 2021
Blaming 'climate change' .. Calif. Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) has asked residents and businesses to cut their water use by 15 percent as the state faces an ongoing drought. Facing an upcoming recall election, Newsome said;
"The hots are getting hotter & the dries are getting drier - that is the reality of climate change."
The new state of emergency adds to Newsom’s still-existent emergency COVID powers, which he extended back in May. While all Californians across the state are being asked to reduce water consumption, large Democrat-led cities including Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco are not included under the emergency proclamation.

"Maintaining basic order and the rule of law is the first duty of government; a healthy society depends on people feeling secure. Secure people are free to pursue their dreams. Florida is America’s freest state, according to a Cato Institute survey: No. 1 in fiscal freedom, No. 1 in educational freedom."
Life can vary greatly in America depending on where you sit. Those differences are growing into a chasm of philosophical and practical contrasts between two basic models for the American future. On many critical questions facing our culture, our economy and our society, California and Florida offer radically different answers.
Call them the California Way or the Florida Way.
- Should lots of new housing be built in the interest of affordability? California says no, Florida says yes.
- Should homeless people be allowed to turn public spaces into tent cities? California says yes, Florida says no.
- Should public elementary schools teach critical race theory? California says yes, Florida says no.
- Should gas be $4 a gallon? California says yes, Florida says no.
- Should biological males be allowed to dominate girls’ sports? Florida says no. California not only says yes, but it is trolling Florida by forbidding its employees to take state-funded trips to Florida, as well as 16 other states.
People are voting on all of this with their U-Hauls. California’s population in 2020 shrank for the first time ever, by 180,000 people, whereas Florida had the second-highest increase in population, after Texas.
During the pandemic, California introduced some of the harshest lockdown measures in the country, crashing its economy, while Florida was among the first states to begin reopening, way back in May of 2020, and has been almost entirely open since September.
It wasn’t long ago that America looked to California for guidance; even Ronald Reagan implicitly promised to spread the California way across the nation. Now California is a model only for dysfunction.
President Trump's lawsuit is asking the U.S. District Court to order an immediate halt to social media companies’ illegal censorship of the American people,” and demanding an end to shadow banning, silencing, blacklisting, and banishing.
In the past year, Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook have permanently banned Trump. Trump supporters and conservative news outlets alike, have also experienced routine censorship for airing Trump rallies and freely expressing support for the 45th president.
Harvard law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz reacted to President Trump announcing a class action lawsuit against Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey (left) and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (right).
“What’s going on with high tech is unacceptable. I wrote a book about this exact subject, ‘The Case Against the New Censorship: Protecting Free Speech from Big Tech,’ so I’m deeply involved in this issue, and I was also asked to be an expert witness. And I did submit an affidavit for this lawsuit, so I’m not simply an observer.”
“This is a complicated case because these are not just ordinary private companies. They have special exemption under Section 230, and therefore they partake of some kind of government action, and the courts will have to parse this issue. How much of what they do is private? How much of what they do partakes of being public? I think this lawsuit will shake things up considerably." (MORE)
The lawsuit will be filed in Florida by the America First Policy Institute, a non-profit focused on aiding Trump’s legal efforts, to protect freedom of speech for every American.
“President Trump often remarked that if Big Tech is out to get him, it’s because they’re out to get the American people — and he was just standing in the way,” said Brooke Rollins, president and CEO of AFPI. ALL Americans need Donald Trump to win — not for what it will mean for him, but for what it will mean for every American man, woman, and child.”
The Supreme Court’s response to the arguments made in attacking Arizona’s voting-integrity provisions expose the folly of the Biden administration’s lawsuit against Georgia.

States can now be confident they will be able to pass sensible election laws to prevent voter fraud without undue judicial interference.
The case the Supreme Court decided involved two of Arizona’s voting-related restrictions that opponents claimed violated Section 2. (Section 2 of the federal Voting Rights Act of 1965 bars any law that discriminates in voting based on race).
On July 1st, in a 6-3 vote, the Supreme Court majority interpreted the Section 2 “effects” clause to apply only when the challenged restriction imposes a substantial burden with a significantly disparate impact on members of different racial groups.
One of the restrictions required the invalidation of ballots cast in person in the wrong precinct.
The other restriction prohibited vote harvesting, where third parties such as campaign workers, community activists, etc. go around and collect ballots from multiple voters in different households and deliver them to official polling stations or election offices.
“Mere inconvenience cannot be enough,” Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. wrote for the majority, describing common sense “guideposts” for dealing with Section 2 challenges. The decision treats blacks and other people of color as adults who are capable of taking advantage of the same multiple ways to vote that are available to everyone else.
Now we need more volunteers out there helping us.

Because he paid attention to the details and didn’t accept at face value the claims even colleagues surely fed him and his staff. What a concept: Checking the fine print before you sign on the dotted line.
“SB 146 presents a test for Governor DeSantis. Signing this bill would authorize and fund precisely the politicized and radical activism he has pledged to remove from Florida’s education system. I don’t doubt that few of Florida’s legislators realized this when they voted for SB 146,” wrote Stanley Kurtz last month as the bill hit DeSantis’s desk.
Kurtz detailed how the bill would fund political activism in the name of “civics education,” as do the majority of initiatives with such labels currently, including bipartisan federal legislation. In the deceitful names of “civic engagement” and “civic literacy,” the Florida bill would have essentially sent state funds to two outfits that coordinate youth political activism and openly endorse far-left causes, including the new racism.
The DeSantis veto of S.B. 146 shows that the push-back against protest civics has truly gained traction. It can’t have been easy to veto a bill that passed unanimously. But knowledge of the troublesome practice of protest civics is spreading, and surely this helped to sink the bill.
Grassroots education groups in Florida called on DeSantis to veto S.B. 146, and even a short time ago conservatives wouldn’t have known enough about protest civics to even notice a bill like this. With the grassroots rebellion sweeping the country on education issues, all of that has changed.
This veto is every bit as much a tribute to the parents across Florida now fighting against politicized schools as it is to Governor DeSantis.
As we learned from the Common Core fight a decade ago, and Goals 2000 and so forth before that, the time for autopilot education and autopilot education governance is long over for those who love America as it was founded and want it long to endure. The barbarians are not only inside the gates, they control the commanding heights.
DeSantis says: Not in Florida.

President Trump and Governor Abbott hold a roundtable briefing.

"We're doing all that we can for one reason, and that's because the way that the people on the border are having their lives turned upside down," Abbott said.
“I cannot tell you the number of stories that I’ve heard from people who have had guns put to their heads or guns brandished at them in their ranches, in their homes, in their neighborhoods. They’re afraid to have their children go play in their yards. The ranchers have their homes invaded, their fences ripped up, their livestock lost, their game lost. It is a far more dangerous situation than it’s ever been.”
Click on image
"I mean the real question is do they really want opens borders or are they just incompetent? Because you're either incompetent or for some reason you have a screw loose and want to have open borders."
Then he roasted vegetable Biden, saying he cannot pass a cognitive test. “I’d like to see Biden ace it — he won’t,” Trump said to his White House doctor-turned Congressman Ronny Jackson.
Yesterday, we heard from a whistleblower within the U.S. government, who reached out to warn us that the NSA, the National Security Agency, is monitoring our electronic communications, and is planning to leak them, in an attempt take this show off the air.
Now, that's a shocking claim, and ordinarily we'd be skeptical of it. It's illegal for the NSA to spy on American citizens. It's a crime. This isn't a third-world country. Things like that shouldn't happen here. But, unfortunately, they do -- and in this case, they did.
The whistleblower, who is in a position to know, repeated back to us information about a story we're working on that could only have come directly from my texts and emails. There's no other possible source for that information, period. The NSA captured it without our knowledge for political reasons. The Biden administration is spying on us. We've confirmed that.
“For decades…, the greatest domestic terror threat has come from radical environmental groups, look it up,” Tuicker said. “White supremacists meanwhile are at the bottom of that list. Federal statistics prove it. Americans are much more likely to die of a lightning strike than at the hands of a white supremacist.”
“White supremacy may be ugly, but it is not a meaningful threat to the nation and claiming otherwise is a lie,” he continued. “So why does the Biden administration persist in telling that lie? It’s a racial attack, obviously, you tell black voters that Republicans are in the KKK and they will keep voting for you. And that’s the idea. Easier than fixing Chicago or raising test scores, which they should be doing.”
“But there’s also a deeper significance, for the Biden administration is signaling a very real change to actual policy,” he continued. “The war on terror now ongoing for 20 years has pivoted, it is now being waged against American citizens, opponents of the regime.”
“We saw this on display at January 6 and told you a couple of weeks ago, based on the language of publicly available indictments, that the FBI has prior knowledge of the riots of the capitol that day and the agents we spoke to confirm that is true.”
Harvard law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz reacted to the State of New York suspending Rudy Giuliani's law license over his claims of fraud in the 2020 election:
"I taught legal ethics for, I don't know, 35 years at Harvard Law school. I think of myself as a leading expert on legal ethics. I've never ever seen a case where a lawyer was essentially disbarred . . .without a hearing. I mean, the most basic concept of due process is you don't deprive somebody of his living, of his freedom, of his ability to work without a hearing."
Click to listen -
"And then the criteria under which they suspended his law license is so vague. It says in the course of representing a client, a lawyer shall not knowingly make a false statement of fact or law to a third person. In other words, if he goes on your show, or he goes on my podcast, or he goes on Fox or anywhere else, and he makes a statement which turns out to be false, and he had reason to believe it was false, he could be disbarred. Do you know how many lawyers we'd have left if we applied that standard across the board?"
Host John Catsimatidis asked if the words "equal justice for all" are dead:
"I think they are mortally wounded. I don't think we're seeing equal justice for all. I think we're seeing selective justice. . .
When a prosecutor runs for office, like the attorney general of New York ran for office on the promise that she will get Donald Trump, is that equal justice? Or is that show me the man, and I'll find you the crime?
You know, that's what happens in banana republics. That's what happens in tyrannical regimes."

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — A man accused of shooting Daytona Beach Police Officer Jason Raynor in the head was captured early Saturday on a wooded property just outside of Atlanta that's affiliated with an all-Black, pro-gun organization. The 'Not Fucking Around Coalition' (NFAC) is a black nationalist paramilitary organization in the United States. The group advocates for black liberation and separatism.
Othal Wallace was found in a treehouse on the 3-acre property during the execution of a search warrant, Daytona Beach Police Chief Jakari Young told reporters at a news conference. Young said law enforcement searched for 56 hours with little sleep to track down Wallace.
Officer Jason Raynor was employed by the Port Orange Police Department from 10/17/16 - 02/14/19. During his tenure, Officer Raynor was an exemplary officer at our agency. While employed with The Port Orange Police Department, Officer Raynor received an award of achievement on December 5, 2018 where he and two other officers were able to successfully rescue a female who was attempting to jump off of the Dunlawton Bridge. #daytonabeachpolicedepartment #daytonabeach #leostrong
Jason Raynor, who has been with the Daytona Beach Police Department since 2019, has had his mother and sister by his side as he continues to recover. Daytona Beach Police Chief Jakari Young said during a news briefing Saturday morning that he “still has a ways to go,” but doctors are comfortable moving forward with more testing now that he is “strong enough.”
A GoFundMe page you has been established to provide assistance to the officer who was shot in Daytona Beach and his family.

"I want to understand white rage, and I’m white, and I want to understand it. So what is it that caused thousands of people to assault this building and try to overturn the Constitution of the United States of America. What caused that? I want to find that out … I’ve read Mao Tse-Tung , I’ve read Karl Marz. I’ve read Lenin …”

JON SCHWEPPE - AMERICA PRINCIPLES PROJECT
Keith Flaugh is CEO of the Florida Citizens Alliance, fighting to rid our schools of the poisonous Critical Race Theory. He'll talk about steps Florida is taking under Governor Ron DeSantis to give our kids a solid education. His group is also promoting parental choice, and Hope Scholarships to allow parents to send their children to private schools when public schools fail.
Jon Schweppe is Director of Policy & Government Affairs at American Principles Project, exposing the deceitful work of Big Tech to launder their money within the Republican Party, and why this practice harms the GOP and all conservatives. Terry will discuss these crucial issues and why it affects the lives of every American. APP warns that the agenda being pushed by Big Tech does not put Americans First.
A straw poll was conducted at this weekend’s 2021 Western Conservative Summit at the Centennial Institute, which is Colorado Christian University’s public policy think tank. The following are the somewhat surprising results:
Ron DeSantis — 74.12%

It is vital for Americans to understand what this initiative would do, what drives it, and, most importantly, how we can stop it."

“Children are suddenly needing to lay out their race, their gender, their sexual orientation, their nation of origin, their religion, whether or not they identify as the sex they were born with .. and then they learn that these identities fall into a category of oppressor or oppressed.”
A parent-led rebellion against Critical Race Theory is storming school boards across the country and demanding accountability for what is being taught to American children.
At least 165 local and national groups have formed to combat Critical Race Theory (CRT) instruction in schools across the U.S., an NBC analysis found.
Many of these groups were founded by parents appalled to discover what was being taught to their children. Their advocacy has launched small town CRT debates onto the national stage, prompted anti-CRT legislation from Republican lawmakers and more.

Governor DeSantis - Full pardons for all Floridians facing criminal or civil penalty for disobeying local COVID-19 restrictions and mandates through Executive Order.
DeSantis pointed to former gym owners Mike and Jillian Carnevale as examples of Floridians who have faced criminal penalties, including possible jail time, for not complying with local mask mandates at their former business in Broward County.
The couple had operated a gym, now shuttered, and disobeyed Broward County mask rules. He was handcuffed and arrested 3 times for not enforcing facial coverings during strenuous exercise. She was also arrested.
“Floridians like Mike and Jillian Carnevale should have never faced criminal charges for not requiring masks in their business. We took action to reject the overreach of local authorities through unnecessary and unscientific mask mandates. No business should face economic ruin and be punished for alleged violations of local orders that are unreasonably restrictive of rights and liberties. Let's focus on the real criminals," said DeSantis.
. Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott ..
.. announced that state officials are making a major down payment on a border wall that is going to be built for the state to help respond to Joe Biden’s border crisis.
Abbott directed Bryan Collier, Executive Director of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, to “transfer $250 million in General Revenue to the Disaster Fund within the Trusteed Programs within the Office of the Governor” for “a down payment to begin design and construction of physical barriers on voluntarily donated private and public lands that border this state and Mexico.”
“Last week, Texas and Arizona called for help to secure the southern border. I’m proud to announce that Florida is stepping up to help the effort and to protect our residents from the harms caused by open borders.” ~ Gov. Ron DeSantis
"Governors Abbott and Ducey recently sent out a call for help to every state in the nation, needing additional law enforcement manpower and other resources to aid with border security .. the state of Florida is answering the call. Florida has your back.”
"America’s border security crisis impacts every state and every American. The Biden Administration ended policies implemented by President Trump that were curbing illegal immigration, securing our border, and keeping Americans safe."
