    Welcome to the weekend. You currently sober drunk host with you again. I worked myself to exhaustion Friday night and crashed in bed rather than continue with normal activities including completion of the Newsdump Friday post. I had to draw the line. This week Charlotte Bennett said that Andrew Cuomo told her that he was "tired" and "lonely" and then went on to make other comments indicating his sexual intentions. "Tired" is not a good place to be and I made the right decision I apologize for the inconvenience to you all who read my blog and enjoy it and...

    Trump may not be in the Oval Office, but make no mistake, Trumpism is here to stay.Since today there is a cultural obsession with rendering everything an -ism, it is only fitting that the presidency of Donald Trump would produce the term “Trumpism.” After all, Trump ignited a conservative revolution that had been brewing for years.The term Trumpism clearly connotes different ideas and meanings depending on whom you ask, but it really is not all that complicated. Trump was a unique political figure during a unique time — and his raunchiness mixed with “America First” policies appealed to voters who...
  • Ron DeSantis: The 2024 Frontrunner (If Trump Doesn't Run?)

    A new survey from Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy revealed that DeSantis garnered an approval rating of 53 percent among Florida voters and a disapproval rating of 42 percent. An approval rating above 50 percent offers a strong foundation for a candidate heading into reelection, as DeSantis is on track to ramp up his candidacy for the 2022 elections in a bold position. The same poll released in July found his approval ratings in a rougher spot, with 45 percent approving and 49 percent disapproving. When compared to hypothetical competition for an upcoming election, DeSantis carries noteworthy margins over two potential...

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis rallied a crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) to fight the “failed Republican establishment,” highlighting the ongoing battle over the direction of the GOP in the wake of former President Trump’s electoral defeat. In opening remarks on the second day of CPAC, DeSantis cast himself as an acolyte of Trump and his brand of conservative populism, echoing the former president’s attacks on “open borders,” foreign labor and “military adventurism.” In doing so, DeSantis previewed a fight to prevent the resurgence of the so-called establishment Republicans, who have challenged Trump’s vision for the party. “Florida’s...

No governor’s story is as emblematic of media malpractice in the era of coronavirus than of Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis. An opponent of the draconian lockdowns eroding liberty at the stroke of a pen, DeSantis has angered statists more than has any Republican in the past year except for Donald Trump.By refusing the one-size-fits-all approach demanded by Dr. Anthony Fauci, a triumphant DeSantis has become both a villain to the left and a hero of the...

    Data from Johns Hopkins University shows California has reported nearly 3.5 million COVID-19 cases in total, while Florida has reported more than 1.82 million. White House COVID-19 adviser Andy Slavitt appeared stumped Wednesday when asked on MSNBC to explain California and Florida’s similar COVID-19 trends, despite having wildly different responses to the pandemic. Slavitt said the virus was still very unpredictable and "a little bit beyond our explanation." "What we do know is that the more careful people are, the more they mask and social distance. And the quicker we vaccinate, the quicker it goes away and the less it...

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) says President Joe Biden “cannot square” opening the United States-Mexico border to thousands of border crossers and illegal aliens while also potentially restricting travel for American citizens. Reports this month have circulated that the Biden administration is leaving the door open to restricting domestic travel from state-to-state for Americans — specifically travel to and from Florida. Simultaneously, Biden has dismantled a legal wall at the southern border that has surged illegal immigration. Biden’s end to the Remain in Mexico policy, as well as a series of cooperative asylum agreements with Central America, is ensuring that...

    On Friday’s broadcast of Fox News Radio’s “Brian Kilmeade Show,” FNC Senior Meteorologist Janice Dean stated that if a Republican like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis had done what New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) has with nursing homes in coronavirus, “that would be a lead story on every single news channel, including the local and the national networks, and every headline of every newspaper.” Dean said, “There have been some very good reporters on the local level that have followed this story. But Brian, I mean, let’s not mince words. If this is a Republican governor, say this is Ron...

    Flanked by legislators and Lt. Gov. Jeanette Nuñez, Gov. Ron DeSantis declared war Tuesday on a “big tech cartel” that has played fast and loose with Florida’s “public square” for too long, and he issued a series of recommendations that seem destined for fast track legislation this year as the Transparency in Technology Act. “Today they may come after someone who looks like me. Tomorrow they may come after someone who looks like you,” DeSantis warned toward the end of long-form remarks decrying tech companies and vowing action. The Governor, addressing reporters at the State Capitol after Tuesday’s Cabinet meeting,...

    Every single Republican lawmaker and figurehead should be required to watch the Rand Paul clip as a clinic for how to take on the left-wing media.Rand Paul’s patience ran out this week when he made an appearance on ABC with George Stephanopoulos and the latter exchanged journalistic inquiry for partisan hackery. The ensuing fight, however, was a case study in what the media has become and how all conservatives who hit the airwaves ought to take them on. Rather than pose legitimate questions to the Kentucky senator, Stephanopoulos, who made his money as a Clinton-era Democratic operative before jumping over...

    Where would you rather live, Florida or New York? It’s a simple question with a basic, easy answer: Florida. But liberal elites hate the Sunshine State and love the Empire State, so the pictures being painted in the media of the two states are unrecognizable. Florida has about 2 million more people than New York, 21.5 million to 19.5 million, yet it has no state income tax. New York’s tax rate ranges from 4 percent to 8.82 percent, New York City has its own tax rate ranging from 3.078 percent to 3.876 percent. Someone making a good living in New...

    'The mere suggestion that Members of Congress are in any way more important than the very people who gave us the privilege of serving in Congress is appalling.'As COVID-19 vaccine disbursement has begun, the question arises of who deserves the first doses. While many agree that priority should go towards the most vulnerable, including the elderly and health-care workers, one group that likely was nowhere near the top of anyone’s list has jumped to the front of the line: politicians. Public officials were granted priority, and several elected officials made use of their spot in line. While few would begrudge...

    Texas and Florida are bucking Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines on distributing the vaccine, choosing to focus more on vaccinating vulnerable populations. Texas announced on Monday that it was breaking with CDC advice on who should receive the vaccine in early rounds of vaccinations. The CDC had recommended that after nursing home residents and healthcare workers, states should prioritize the elderly and workers deemed essential in sectors such as agriculture and education. While Texas is still in the beginning round of vaccinations going to healthcare workers and long-term care facilities, it will prioritize the most vulnerable to...

    Dive Brief: Skanska USA Civil Southeast has turned to the federal courts in an attempt to eliminate or significantly reduce its liability for damages caused by barges that broke loose from the $430 million Pensacola Bay Bridge construction project during Hurricane Sally in August by having its barges recognized as vessels protected under maritime law. In five separate filings each covering a different barge, Skanska asked the U.S. District Court in Pensacola, Florida, to declare that it is not liable "for any loss, injuries or damages" related to barge damage, including economic losses suffered by businesses from the closure of...

    TALLAHASSSEE, Fla. (News Service of Florida) - Bondholders have gone to a state appeals court as they seek to force the Florida Department of Transportation to pay damages because of lost toll revenues on a long-controversial Panhandle bridge. UMB Bank, which represents bondholders, filed a notice last week that it was taking the dispute to the 1st District Court of Appeal after a Leon County circuit judge ruled in November that the department could not be forced to pay damages. As is common, the notice of appeal does not provide detailed legal arguments. But the appeal is the latest move...
  • Is Florida’s massive toll road project destined to crash? | Editorial

    The Tampa Bay Times ^ | November 29, 2020 | Tampa Bay Times Editorial Board
    Proponents have called the state’s massive new toll road project a monumental opportunity and a thoughtful plan for smart growth. The 330 miles of new highways will curb interstate congestion, bolster the economy and facilitate hurricane evacuations, they say. In short, the argument goes, the roads would be a good investment. So why is it that so many of the preliminary studies are at best lukewarm on the idea? And the latest reports only add to the list of reasons to reconsider the controversial project. The tolls roads, dubbed the Multi-use Corridors of Regional Economic Significance, were largely pushed by...

    Thus far in Florida, approximately 20,000 people have died of COVID-19. In Texas, the number stands around 24,000, and in New York, about 35,000.New York is the smallest of the three, with 19.54 million residents. Then comes Florida, with 21.67 million, before Texas, with 28.7 million residents.COVID numbers are difficult to trust. Cases are often counted more than once as patients go in and out of the hospital, and some deaths are attributed to COVID that are barely related, if at all.There’s a perverse incentive to write down “COVID” and get state and federal money, no doubt, but one thing...

    State police raided the home of a former Department of Health data scientist who is accusing Florida officials of wrongfully firing her for refusing to manipulate COVID-19 statistics. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement served the search warrant at Rebekah Jones’ Tallahassee home Monday morning in connection with an investigation into who hacked the state’s internal notification system with a message urging state employees to come forward with information about Florida’s handling of the pandemic. The alert read: “It’s time to speak up before another 17,000 people are dead. You know this is wrong. You don’t have to be a...
