Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer will retire at the end of the current court term, setting up the final step to elevate DC Appeals Court Judge Kentanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court. This is exactly what was planned from the appointment of Merrick Garland to U.S. Attorney General. [GO DEEP]
As reported by CTH in March 2021 – "Merrick Garland was confirmed Attorney General to open his seat in the DC Appeals Court for Kentanji Brown Jackson. KBJ’s appointment to that specific court needed Senate confirmation.
In June 2021, KBJ was confirmed [GO DEEP] with a vote of 53-47. Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski and Lindsey Graham voted with Democrats to support KBJ to the circuit court.
Once Senate confirmed, we anticipate (almost to a certainty) that replacement (KBJ) will be elevated to a Supreme Court nomination to replace Justice Stephen Breyer, now 82-years-old.
The Senate will have no political ammunition to block or not confirm the radical SCOTUS pick, because she will have been confirmed months before. As a standalone nomination for SCOTUS she would be a radical pick; Justice Brown Jackson is a known activist in the DC District Court; however, with this maneuver she could get through nomination easier and then sit on the highest court for thirty years."
For the ones who are dumb, they’ll keep putting their palms on the burners and being surprised when they smell singed hand ... “I voted for Biden and someone broke into my car, plus I caught COVID though I quadruple mask and quintuple vaxx, and then I got drafted to go fight to protect Hunter’s investments in Ukraine! How did this happen?" - By Kurt Schlichter
Noted dead white guy Samuel Johnson, who believed that there are only two genders, once observed, “Depend upon it, Sir, when a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates his mind wonderfully.” It’s an apt analogy here, both because it evokes the fact that the Democrats have gone all-in on the side of the criminals as the crime rate rockets up, and also because it demonstrates just how intractably stupid the Democrats are. They ride in the little cart heading toward their November 8th date with the electoral noose, but their minds are not concentrated on that. Instead they are concentrated on fake insurrections and telling us how CRT is not taught in schools yet must absolutely continue to be taught in schools.
The Democrats always fail, always. They hate normal Americans, they screw up the economy, they coddle criminals. When you give these morons authority, they will mess everything up. Name a functioning institution in our society that works even adequately. There is no competently-run institution left in America. Academia is broke. The military is broke. And what’s the one thing our institutions have in common? They are run by the left, and the Democrats are the party of the left.
We want socialism destroyed. Not tamed, not moderated .. crushed. Wiped out. Nuked from orbit, because that is the only way to be sure. When we are done, we want the Democrat Party terrified of even hinting at support for anything remotely like the socialism. This is a matter of either us and freedom winning, or us acquiescing to a jack-booted, lib-fascist future forever. We choose freedom.

"We love the United States Constitution. And we have witnessed over the past 20 months a coup d'état against democracy and the demolition, a controlled demolition of the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights. And starting with the censorship.

Saturday Jan. 15: Speaking in front of a sea of supporters gathered at the Country Thunder festival grounds in Florence, Arizona, President Trump delivered what sounded like his first stump speech of a possible 2024 campaign.
Trump looked ahead to 2024 as well as this year's midterm elections - he predicted that "a great red wave is going to begin right here in Arizona" and vowed that "this is the year we take back the House, this is the year we take back the Senate" MORE************Here in Volusia County, we need Poll Watchers so we too can help assure the integrity of the vote. We have a huge job in November making sure our great Governor DeSantis is re-elected and we will again need your help..
Seven lawmakers representing Volusia and Flagler counties are headed to Tallahassee on Tuesday to consider bills, hammer out a budget and shape state government over the next year. The four representatives and three senators representing the area are all Republicans.
Rep. Paul Renner*and Rep. Tom Leek, representing Volusia Co, are in high-ranking leadership roles. They will have a significant hand in what moves through the House. (*Renner will succeed current Speaker of the House Chris Sprowls after the 2022 legislative session)
Rep. Elizabeth Fetterhoff, who represents a district spanning DeLand and mainland Daytona Beach, is proposing to address a problem homeowners and home sellers are having with getting timely septic-system inspections.
"Right now there is a backlog of inspections, either because of manpower or COVID, so why not cut red tape by allowing a private provider to be hired at the cost of the homeowner?"
Rep. Webster Barnaby, R-Deltona, introduced legislation banning abortions when physicians can hear what Barnaby terms a "fetal heartbeat," usually around 6 weeks. Texas enacted a similar law last year.
It's a fight Barnaby and other abortion opponents are primed to have as the U.S. Supreme Court reconsiders the 1973 Roe v. Wade precedent legalizing abortions.

Senators pitch sweeping, pro-business changes
Sen. Tom Wright, of New Smyrna Beach, represents southeast Volusia as well as northern Brevard County — the Space Coast.
He has proposed the bill with perhaps the snappiest title, the "Zero G, Zero Fee" act, which would exempt certain spaceport users from fees or charges while transporting a space vehicle or equipment.
Sen. Travis Hutson, of St. Augustine, has proposed a way to support businesses who've been harmed by local or county ordinances.
"We've seen local governments who want to ban sunscreen (for environmental purposes), or communities attempt to stop cruise ships from docking, or when a city dramatically reduces hours when a bar can operate."
Sen. Jason Brodeur, who represents Seminole County and a chunk of southwest Volusia, filed 34 bills as of Thursday, proposing, among other things:
- requiring a state inventory of critical wetlands
- barring foreign nationals from making political contributions
- establishing "education recovery scholarship accounts" to help children who missed 10 or more days of public school

In typical leftist form the J6 events are now being compared to the attack on Pearl Harbor and the September 11, 2021, terrorist attacks by the Biden administration. However, before the day’s insufferable events began, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was asked his opinion of what would take place. DeSantis rightly noted this is Christmas Day for the DC system; they have been preparing for this day for almost a year. WATCH:
Governor Ron DeSantis has announced six legislative proposals that would drastically crackdown on illegal immigration into Florida.
DeSantis made the move after his administration discovered that Joe Biden’s federal agencies have flown at least 70 privately funded flights full of border crossers and UACs (Unaccompanied Alien Children) into the state of Florida — often in the middle of the night. More
“Any of these contractors that are facilitating Biden’s illegal policies by bringing people into Florida, oftentimes flying in at two o’clock in the morning with no notice to the State, anyone who is doing that forfeits the ability to have contracts with State and local government in the State of Florida.
Unfortunately, we had somebody brought in from Biden that murdered somebody in Jacksonville just a few weeks ago, and so we’re very concerned about it, and we want to say this is not the right decision to be making, to be facilitating, which is basically an illegal human smuggling operation." Watch
The measures are significant as they are the first in the nation seeking to effectively outlaw many of the business practices carried out by corporate-funded NGOs (Non-Government Organizations) who are contracted by the federal government to resettle hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens across the United States every year.
The six proposals would:
1. Ban state and local agencies from doing business with or providing benefits to any private-sector business or NGO that helps facilitate illegal immigration to Florida.
2. Ban state agencies from renewing state contracts with transportation companies, such as airlines and bus services, that facilitate illegal immigration to Florida.
3. Require private-sector businesses and NGOs, who facilitate illegal immigration to Florida, to provide compensation to the state of Florida to cover all costs that fall on taxpayers.
4. Mandate county and local jails, as well as courts, to collect immigration status data at the time of a suspect’s arrest and conviction. The information would be reported to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
5. Ban Florida officials from providing any discretionary benefits to illegal aliens while state agencies and hospitals will be required to annually report taxpayer-funded expenses for illegal aliens.
6. Add the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity as an enforcer of E-Verify.
In addition to the six proposals, DeSantis announced an emergency order that bans the issuance or renewal of all state licenses to provide services to Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs) who are resettled across Florida. The order is effective immediately. MORE
Spokeswoman Christina Pushaw; “We hope this action will serve as a deterrent to the Biden Administration’s massive human-smuggling operation, while protecting Florida’s most vulnerable kids. Governor DeSantis will continue to use his lawful authority to stand up for Floridians in the face of the Biden Administration’s dereliction of its duty to enforce our country’s immigration laws.”
“This was an intentional act. And it seems like for corporate press, they’re more apt to characterize a parent who goes to a school board meeting to protest bad policies as a domestic terrorist, than somebody who intentionally rams an SUV into crowd of innocent people.”
Hanukkah 2021 begins at sundown on Sunday, November 28.
Hanukkah, or the Festival of Rededication, celebrates the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem. In 167 BCE, the Jews of Judea rose up in revolt against the oppression of King Antiochus IV Epiphanes.
Antiochus went so far as to desecrate the Temple in Jerusalem by installing images of Zeus on its holy platforms and altars. This was meant to be more than a defilement of Israel’s religious ethos, but a pulverizing of its very national identity as well, since the Temple was the religious and civic symbol of Jewish nationhood.
The military leader of the first phase of the revolt was Judah the Maccabee. In the autumn of 164, Judah and his followers were able to capture the Temple in Jerusalem. They cleansed it and rededicated it to Israel’s God.
This event was observed in an eight-day celebration.
Like Passover, Hanukkah is a holiday that celebrates the liberation from oppression. It also provides a strong argument in favor of freedom of worship and religion.
In spite of the human action that is commemorated, never far from the surface is the theology that the liberation was possible only thanks to the miraculous support of the Divine. Read More

Nov. 4, DeSantis Responds To Biden's New OSHA Rule For Vaccine Mandate
"We've gone from 15 days to slow the spread, to get jabbed or lose your job"
Oct. 26, Ron DeSantis at a Washington DC Republican dinner:
"You’ve got a press that for over two years created a fake conspiracy theory involving Russian collusion. I was in Congress when that started. I was only one of a handful of people who knew that was BS from the beginning. But they did it. And they milked it. And was all because they disagreed with the outcome of the 2016 election.
They never accepted Donald Trump. They created and manufactured a conspiracy theory to try to drive him out office and to kneecap him and his presidency and we know it was false. We know that there was no truth to it.
Have any of them actually apologized? Heck, have any of them even said, ‘We were wrong about that’? No, they give each other awards. They actually award Pulitzer Prizes for reporting false stories.
So that’s where we are. They gaslight. They display partisanship. They smear people. It’s all to create a blizzard of lies, trying to blind the American people from the actual truth. And so we live in Orwellian times in which the powers that be want to tell us that up is down and left is right.
And when a society like ours is veering away from the truth like we are, those that stand up and tell truth will face fire. That type of society goes after the truth-tellers more than anything because they understand those who tell the truth represent a threat to their power. So in times like these, there is no substitute for courage."
"Winston Churchill told a story during the appeasement in the 1930s when he was in the Parliament .. he talked about when he was a kid, the Barnum & Bailey Circus was coming to town and there was an act that was just too grotesque for human eyes. His nanny wouldn’t let him go see. It was called the ‘boneless wonder.’
And Churchill said, ‘I think now, where is this boneless wonder? .. it’s now no longer in the circus; it’s in the front row of the House of Commons'. These were people that weren’t standing up against Adolf Hitler.
So right now conservatives, we don’t have time for boneless wonders. The minute you go up there and you’re scared of the media, you’re scared they’re going to say bad things about you and you cave, those voters have no use for you after that.
You get elected to office, you need to be willing to stand up. Stand up against the press. You stand up and you’re strong in your convictions, there are millions and millions of people out there that will be with you forever."

Dr. Ben Carson Rips Covid Vaccines For Kids
Dr. Ben Carson, Housing and Urban Development Secretary under President Donald Trump, criticized Covid-19 vaccinations for children ages 5 to 11 as "a giant experiment" during a Sunday appearance on Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures."
Asked by anchor Maria Bartiromo whether he agreed with the recent Centers for Disease Control (CDC) decision to allow children to receive Pfizer's Covid vaccine, Carson definitively replied, "absolutely not."
"The fact of the matter is, the mortality rate for children from COVID-19 is 0.025, which is very similar to the rate for seasonal flu. And we haven't been for years and years going through all these things for seasonal flu.
Plus, we don't know what the long-term impact of these vaccines is. So this is really sort of a giant experiment. Do we want to put our children at risk, when we know that the risk of the disease to them is relatively small, but we don't know what the future risks are? Why would we do a thing like that? It makes no sense whatsoever."

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
"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.”
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.
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.
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.
A 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.
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
