"Hamas is a terrorist group that is launching rockets onto the civilian population of Israel"

Statement from Chairman Joe Gruters:

Less than one year ago, the United States entered into The Abraham Accord, a joint statement between Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and the United States as a vehicle to address challenges through cooperation and dialogue in a real effort to advance longstanding peace in the region.  Shamefully, Hamas is actively working to destroy the foundation of this agreement by turning growing trust into hate. The free world cannot allow that to occur.

Hamas is a terrorist group that is launching rockets onto the civilian population of Israel.  The Israeli’s have every right to defend themselves against terrorists such as Hamas.  It should not need reminding that Israel is the only democracy and greatest ally to the United States in the Middle East. The RPOF stands in solidarity with our Jewish friends that call Florida home and Israel especially during these deadly days of attacks against the men, women and children of this great nation.


 Israel Defense Forces @IDF
Millions of Israeli civilians are running to bomb shelters as sirens sound across the country.
"With Hamas having sparked what may be a full-scale war in the Middle East, Trump unabashedly and loudly spoke the truth."

Trump Tells the Truth About Biden, the Democrats and Israel

"When I was in office we were known as the Peace Presidency, because Israel’s adversaries knew that the United State stood strongly with Israel and there would be swift retribution if Israel was attacked.  Under Biden, the world is getting more violent and more unstable because Biden’s weakness and lack of support for Israel is leading to new attacks on our allies.  

America must always stand with Israel and make clear that the Palestinians must end the violence, terror, and rocket attacks, and make clear that the U.S. will always strongly support Israel’s right to defend itself.  Unbelievably, Democrats also continue to stand by crazed anti-American Rep. Ilhan Omar, and others, who savagely attack Israel while they are under terrorist assault."

"We're making sure we're enforcing voter ID. We're also banning ballot harvesting.

We're not gonna let political operatives go and get satchels of votes to dump them in some drop box. We're also prohibiting mass mailing of balloting. We've had absentee voting in Florida for a long time. You request the ballot. You get it. And you mail it in. But to just indiscriminately send them out is not a recipe for success."

Warning To Rioters: "If you are in Portland and think you can come down to Florida and do this .. stay out of our state"

"If you look around the country, what happens is, like Portland, these people riot every night. They go, they get their mug shot, and then they get put right back on the street to do it again. That’s what we don’t want.”

He then added that “the minute you harm somebody else, or you harm somebody’s property, you do those types of things, the only way we’re going to put a stop to it is to have very swift penalties for it.”

The Governor pointed out that crime is sparking across the country in areas with lack of support for the police. “There’s a lot of places around this country that have not stood by law enforcement, and the tragedy of it is, you’re seeing a crime spike in certain parts of our country like we haven’t seen in decades,’ he said. “The people that are going to be most affected by that are the most vulnerable members of our society.”

Democrats say they're the party of science, but in reality ...

... They're the party of fear, runaway emotions and myth.

Mask Confusion:

"U.S. health officials have refused to say when U.S. health agencies will no longer recommend Americans to wear masks in public. In February, Dr. Anthony Fauci suggested masks could continue to be around into 2022."

Poll: One of Four Americans Say It Is "Safe" for Them to Go Out in Public Without a Mask


WH COVID Coordinator: In Time, CDC 'Will Allow Vaccinated People More...Privileges to Take Off That Mask'

The Biden administration will not be satisfied until 70 percent of Americans are vaccinated. In the meantime, keep your mask handy until the CDC allows you the "privilege" of not wearing one. 

A Plague of Politicians

So what might have happened if lockdowns had never been imposed? 

  •  We would have seen far fewer COVID deaths as effective health care information would have been widely disseminated, focused care of the most vulnerable implemented, and new therapeutics rapidly evaluated.
  •  Tens of millions of jobs would be intact.
  •  Black and Hispanic employment would be at record highs.
  •  Our civil rights, rule of law, and our Constitution would still be intact.
  •  There would be no vaccine passports.
  •  Trump would likely still be president.

"When President DeSantis is sworn in at 12:00 pm on January 20, 2025 ...

He should give a short speech and by 12:10 be firing people. Lots of people. And right away."

  • He needs to fire Christopher Wray at the FBI and most of the failed Bureau’s leadership.

  • He needs to fire much of the Justice Department.

  • He needs to rampage through the rest of the bureaucracy, firing to and fro.

Then there’s the Pentagon – there’s a lot of firing to be done there. Trump was always impressed by generals. That was a huge mistake. DeSantis was in the Navy. He gets it .. by the time generals pin on that fourth star, they are all-in on the establishment. Why do you think they are so eager to invoke the woke? Because that’s who they are. Fire them.

Then reach down in the ranks to find the guys who aren’t poisoned by leftism and promote them. And take a serious interest in who gets promoted in the future – don’t rubber stamp the promotion lists the Pentagon generates. 

Trump used to believe in our institutions and it took him a while to see how totally corrupt they truly are. He thought, for too long, that the DoJ and FBI and other agencies really had America’s interests at heart instead of the liberal establishment’s priorities.

Trump had no (political) Rolodex. Trump had no one to call. That’s a big part of why his administration was staffed with people who had zero loyalty and spent their time undermining him and his policies. It was only at the end that Trump found trustworthy folks who would do their jobs instead of pursue outside agendas.

President DeSantis will not have that problem – there’s a whole generation of experienced conservatives out there to call upon to staff his administration. And they will to be ready to separate the wheat form the chaff when they take up their places. Time to play by the new rules – we didn’t make them, but we need to play by them.

“Supporting our law enforcement and first responders .. to express our gratitude for their selflessness.”

 Ron DeSantis @GovRonDeSantis

"Some want to defund the police. In Florida, we’re funding them & then some by providing all of our heroes $1,000 bonuses. This represents more than 174,000 first responders across the state!"

🚔 .🚒 .,🚑
Ron DeSantis announced on Wednesday that his administration is giving $1,000 bonuses to all of Florida’s 174,000 first responders, including law enforcement officers, paramedics, emergency medical technicians (EMTs), and firefighters.
The authorization comes following the Governor’s call for the bonuses in March, with the bonuses included in the 2021-22 state budget. While the budget is not yet signed, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) is working to immediately implement this bonus program, expediting the distribution effort. Approximately $208 million has been allocated from DEO for over 174,000 first responders across the state, including 49,405 sworn law enforcement officers, 40,732 EMTs, 35,811 firefighters and 33,185 paramedics in Florida.
