    Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents have arrested a viral TikToker who attracted notoriety through a video advocating that illegals use squatter's rights to effectively take over American homes, Fox News reported, citing an "ICE official." Agents with the Detroit field office reportedly arrested Leonel Moreno in Gahanna, Ohio. An ICE spokesperson told Just the News on Thursday that "Leonel Moreno is an unlawfully present Venezuelan non-citizen, who illegally entered the country April 23, 2022. Moreno was placed into the ATD [Alternatives to Detention] program by Border Patrol and was told to report to Enforcement and Removal Operations office within 60...

    [cut] You couldn’t have predicted this jubilance a few years ago. On January 7, 2021, Trump was an exile of sorts. Then, after the 2022 elections, he was chastised for his role in setting up the GOP’s midterm failure. The conservative movement’s main media pipeline, Fox News, was turning on him. MAGA’s ascendant tech-tycoon class salivated over Ron DeSantis. The party’s national security wing pined for Nikki Haley. But then Trump was indicted and Republicans, including his opponents, rallied around him. And then he won the primary without participating in a single debate. And then he was convicted and his...

  • Florida’s Ron DeSantis Says ‘Sexual’ Festival Caused Him to Veto $32 M. in Arts Grants

    Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida has given the public some clarity on his veto last week of $32 million in arts and culture grants from next year’s state budget. According to a story published in the Tampa Bay Times, DeSantis said the cause was Orlando International Fringe Theater Festival, which he characterized as being overtly “sexual” and therefore an inappropriate recipient of state funds. While it’s unclear if the Orlando festival was slated to receive any money from the grants, the state of Florida awards money for cultural projects based on a ranked list. The Fringe Festival was ranked toward...
  • GOP Rep. Chip Roy on a Rescue Mission to Save Democrats — Proposes Resolution to Initiate 25th Amendment Proceedings Against Joe Biden – Will Save Democrats, Allow Them to Run Candidate in All 50 States

    Representative Chip Roy (R-Texas), who has previously endorsed Florida Governor Ron Desantis, is now seemingly attempting to undermine his own party by proposing a resolution urging Kamala Harris to initiate proceedings under the 25th Amendment to declare Joe Biden unfit for office. .... Snip.... Rep. Roy appears to be on a mission to rescue the Democrat party from what he perceives as a leadership crisis. His proposed resolution seeks to use the 25th Amendment as a tool to declare President Biden unable to perform his duties, a move that some critics are calling the “dumbest thing” to do.

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is warning that abortion proponents in the state are preparing to smuggle a radical ballot measure across the finish line in November. “Because all of the Southeast has various forms of pro-life legislation, Florida would become the abortion mecca of this region—and maybe one of the abortion meccas of the entire world, because it would be one of the most liberal abortion regimes anywhere in the world,” the Republican governor warned during a Zoom call Thursday with hundreds of pastors and faith leaders. “This amendment is written maybe more liberal than New York and California, but...

    Gov. Ron DeSantis vowed the Sunshine State won’t abide by potential bureaucratic restrictions on Second Amendment rights after the U.S. surgeon general declared firearm violence a “public health crisis.” The Biden administration’s surgeon general, Dr. Vivek Murthy, said guns “[pose] a serious threat to the health and well-being of our country.” The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ webpage for the advisory does not list any new legal action taken on restrictions, but DeSantis warned that similar advisories were issued at the start of the coronavirus pandemic – preceding lockdowns and other government mandates. “During COVID, unelected bureaucrats used...

    Republicans' top pick to be Donald Trump's vice presidential candidate, according to a new poll by The Economist/YouGov. DeSantis, who was initially considered Trump's top contender for the candidacy but quickly dropped out from the primaries after a sweeping defeat in Iowa, has said he is not interested in the position. However, over four in ten respondents who identify as Republicans chose him as their preferred pick, while 40% of independents who lean toward the GOP giving the same answer. The poll showed that Florida Senator Marco Rubio followed suit with 27% of respondents choosing him as the potential VP....

    People will see…. it might take a little more time than I would prefer, but the truth will come out and people will see. A judge in Florida is starting to take apart the secrecy operation that Ron DeSantis and his DC Bush clan constructed during their block Trump operation. DeSantis moved from Congress to the Florida Governor position in 2018; the intent was always to run for President in 2024 and take apart the Trump constructs returning the Republican apparatus to traditional corporate controls. Part of their lengthy approach was to import some of the Washington DC silo/secrecy functions...

    Governor Ron DeSantis’ crackdown on illegal immigrants seems to be paying off in more ways than one, according to a recent report. The governor’s multi-pronged effort to reduce illegal immigration in Florida has resulted in a significant reduction in the number of taxpayer dollars going to fund healthcare for those residing in the country illegally. The governor signed a law last year requiring hospitals that accept Medicaid to ask patients about their legal immigration status when they seek treatment. The legislation does not compel patients to answer the question, but immigrant rights groups argued that it would discourage them from...

    On June 7, 2021, Florida Governor DeSantis received HB0087 along with 24 other bills. Because the bill was sent after the Florida legislature had adjourned for the session, Governor DeSantis has 15 days to sign the bill, allow the bill to become law, or veto the bill.The Florida legislature overwhelmingly voted for HB0087 on March 8, 2024. The bill is titled Taking of Bears. It restores the ability of people in Florida to protect themselves, their pets, and their dwellings from black bears without having to ask permission from the Florida state bureaucracy first. The legal ability to defend pets...

    The most consequential question in Washington over the past century is what led to Donald Trump's presidency. How did this vulgar outsider without any political experience win a general election in 2016? Books have explored and will continue to explore that question. Whatever the answers are – there are many - the crux of Trump's ascension emanates from voters realizing they trust a political novice more than they do establishment Washington. Many Americans feel that way still, nearly eight years later. Trump is now the polling and betting favorite to win in November. But what about 2028? Where will the...

    The Department of Health last week sent a blast email boosting the budget. Florida has more than 700,000 medical marijuana patients and Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis — who is battling a proposal to allow recreational use of marijuana — wants them all to know what a great job he’s doing. The Department of Health last week sent a blast email to its medical marijuana patient list boasting that DeSantis signed the state budget. The email praised a cancer research program promoted by first lady Casey DeSantis, listed health issues like HIV, hepatitis and syphilis that are in the spending plan...

    There’s a fair amount of speculation these days about whom Trump will choose as a running mate. Guessing games can often attract a crowd. The names of Ron DeSantis and Marco Rubio, along with even Donald Trump, Jr., are being bandied about. There is a catch. It’s called the Twelfth Amendment: “The Electors shall meet in their respective states, and vote by ballot for President and Vice President, one of whom, at least, shall not be an inhabitant of the same state with themselves.” This particular clause did not change the Constitution. It was carried forward from Article II, Section...

    A recent episode of the woke Star Wars show went overboard with its anti-male, pro-feminism rhetoric by including a scene where lesbians use Force to immaculately conceive babies. The scene appeared in the showrunner Leslye Headland’s newest addition to the Star Wars universe in the form of The Acolyte which was previously called the “gayest Star Wars ever,” the Post Millennial reported.This is Star Wars now thanks to Kathleen Kennedy— Jack Poso 🇺🇸 (@JackPosobiec) June 12, 2024The fans of the universe pointed out that not only is this causing concern for being off canon, but the scene is another...

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Friday spoke out for the first time about Russian warships in Cuban waters, criticizing the Biden administration for espousing "weakness" on the global stage. Footage released by the Russian Defense Ministry on Thursday showed the frigate Admiral Gorshkov and nuclear-powered submarine Kazan sailing into Havana Bay, about 100 miles south of Florida. They were not carrying nuclear weapons but were armed with Zircon hypersonic missiles and Kalibr cruise missiles. The Cuban Foreign Ministry described the Russian naval presence as a reflection of the country's "historically friendly relations" with Moscow, even greeting the ships with a...

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Disney have put an end to their years-long feud, allowing for the development of Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando for the next 15 years. DeSantis' five appointees on the Central Florida Tourism Oversight District gave final approval on Wednesday to a deal that would allow the entertainment giant to make infrastructure improvements, CBS reported. In exchange, the company will spend at least $8 billion on the resort over the next decade with a total of $17 billion invested over 10 to 20 years.
