Conservatives Fight Back Against Corporate 'Wokeness'
"With this whole corporate wokeness thing, I think a lot of conservative share my view that if you are a corporation who embraces this woke agenda who, among other things, subsidizes an assault on children and parents in public schools, which is what this gender bizarre nonsense really is. You are my enemy and I want to use all our political power to hurt you in retaliation to ensure that you don't do this again. It's not just live and let live. If you cross us, we're going to crush you. And that's what Ron DeSantis did in Florida. And frankly, I don't understand arguments that say corporation can use their culture and political power against us to achieve bizarre and damaging cultural goals. Yet I am we are somehow restrained from using our political power to defeat them. What do you think of that theory? Because I think a lot conservatives are beginning to subscribe to it. Well, there's been a long history of activist groups using boycotts to change the behavior of corporations. I mean, Jesse Jackson in the last 40, 50 years has spent most of his time doing that sort of thing challenging boards of directors, pressuring them, threatening boycotts. Companies do respond to that kind of stuff. And there's no reason that conservative groups couldn't do the same sort of thing. When you see something like this State Farm stuff and I think what we've seen is kind of a lot of business operates on fear, right? I mean, you've seen other businesses get swallowed up when some other company comes in does something better has a better idea, et cetera. So they will respond. So I think that this is actually kind of a healthy thing that we've seen after State Farm did this ridiculous thing that they've boom. They've completely 360 because they got some public exposure and pressure.
An appeals court finds Florida's social media law unconstitutional
"Federal appeals court ruled a Florida law on social media is unconstitutional a three judge panel concluded it was overreach for governor Ron DeSantis and the Republican led Florida legislature to tell social media companies how to conduct their work under the constitution's guarantee of free speech The ruling upholds a similar decision by a Florida federal district judge on the law It was part of an overall conservative effort to portray social media companies as generally liberal in outlook and hostile to ideas outside of that viewpoint especially from the political right a similar law is in effect in Texas tech companies want the Supreme Court to step in there I'm Ed
How Karrin Taylor-Robson Would Fix Arizona's Schools
"What do you think of kind of the Ron DeSantis model of governing? Well, you know, I love what he's doing in particular with the schools and with CRT. I have been a passionate advocate for civics education for a long time. I cheered the Joe foss institute when we initiated the civics education initiative that requires all of our high school seniors to take the civics test that immigrants legal immigrants to the country take in order to become citizens. Arizona was the first to pass that. And now that's required in 33 states, so we estimate between four and 6 million students high school seniors a year have to take that test. I've been passionate about it. And when I go around the state, I tell everybody that when I'm governor, our kids will stand for the Pledge of Allegiance, they will learn to love this country not hate it, and they will learn that two plus two in fact is four. There is this thing called the truth. There's this thing called objective reality. Yes. And that's what our kids will learn. My education plan that I just put out a week ago, I'm going to have a civics education camp for our teachers because what we're learning is our teachers don't even know the exceptional nature of this country in the history of this country. If they knew it, they wouldn't hate it. And now they're teaching our kids to hate it. You know, if there was if there was a silver lining at all to COVID, parents woke up and saw what their kids would learn. I mean, everybody, myself included, thought, you know, we're dropping our kid off at school, and we think they're learning what we learned as kids, only to discover that that was totally in
Florida appeals court reinstates DeSantis congressional map
"A Florida appeals court has reinstated a congressional map put forth by Florida Republican governor Ron DeSantis AP correspondent Norman hall reports The new congressional map drawn by governor Ron DeSantis staff could diminish Florida's black representation in Washington a lower court judge ordered it replaced just a week ago while the appeals court did not address the constitutionality of the map it did cite what it called the need for certainty and continuity as election season approaches The desantis map would likely boost the number of Florida seats held by Republicans while also making it difficult for democratic U.S. representative Al Lawson to maintain his seat in the north Florida district where nearly half the voters are black Another district that currently favors black candidates is also redrawn The latest ruling is expected to be appealed to the Florida Supreme Court I Norman
Florida Was an Unbelievable Success Story During the Pandemic. Why?
"So Florida was an unbelievable success story. During the pandemic. By remaining open and defying federal government, pressure, Ron DeSantis, the courageous Ron DeSantis was able to keep Florida free, businesses from closing down. He was able to taper and hedge against mental health issues, depression, suicide, social isolation, alcoholism, Florida became kind of a Beacon of liberty and hope, and you see it with the real estate values around here. You see it with the new businesses that are moving here. It's almost synonymous with self government. Ron DeSantis deserves credit and Ron DeSantis has received some incredibly well earned praise for doing this. But the question is, why was he able to do it? The reason is in the structure of our government. We talk a lot about the United States Constitution here on this program. And James Madison, in the federalist papers, argued that the structure of the constitution was one of its defining elements. James Madison Alexander Hamilton and John Jay, the three authors of the federalist papers and one of the three most involved in designing our constitution, James Madison being the most involved. Why is America able to be free not because of our Bill of rights every banana republic has a Bill of rights? No, the structure of checks and balances and consent of the governed. Allows a bottom up structure, a grassroots centric way of governing.
Will the 2024 Republican Presidential Field Be Trump vs Everybody?
"No, I want to turn to The Washington Post column I have up this morning over at the landing page. Trump hovers, but the numbers of his likely rival grows. I divide would be 2024 people into three bags, ultra maga, maga light, and everybody else. And a few candidates like Ron DeSantis, Tom cotton, Mike Pompeo, Rick Scott, Tim Scott, Ted Cruz. They can do all three of those groups. What do you think about my general categories? Those are people like youngkin and Nikki Haley. And everybody else, Chris Christie, who's coming up next hour and Mike Pence and people like that. Fair enough tax hominy, taxonomy. I think it's a useful text on me. I kind of look at the erasers divided into two candidates or two groups. One is Trump than everybody. Everybody is. Yes, that's true. And so so much rise on what president Trump decides to do in 2024. I think he's leaning toward running at the moment, but that could change. If his president Trump, he likes to change his mind, I am provided. But I think it's important for the other candidates you mentioned here not to be deterred by the prospect of a Trump candidacy. If you really believe that this is your moment, the calling to call has arrived and that you can offer the country a successful presidency, you should run and you should be prepared to run against Donald Trump.
Dave Rubin: Red States Show a Willingness to Compromise
"Don't even want to get into it. The disagreements of like, what is a conservator or not? What really matters though is like we believe in consent of the governed separation of powers, the constitution, freedom of speech, we believe there's something worth conserving and protecting, and then let's go defeat these degenerate woke people. Yes, like that's the mission statement. Yes, we can set aside whatever the differences are. So Newton is so irrelevant. Charlie, some people on the more libertarian side are going to want no taxes. Some conservatives want a little bit of taxes, but they don't want a lot of federal taxes. We could put all of that aside to save the country. To save the republic. Let's just save the republic. And then we can hash out our differences after. Right? We can. And by the way, you know, I mentioned this on the show last night at the live event that, you know, when it comes to this roe V wade thing, look, the pro life thing to conservatives, this is like the top of the thing. It's about life, conserving life. So this is the type of thing. But two interesting things happen. One of them, I didn't know until the show last night. So in Florida where I now live, a few weeks ago, they passed a 15 week ban on abortion. Now, 50 weeks, that's three and a half months. That's more, even though I have some willingness for a few weeks. That's further than I would go. I would go maybe to 12, okay? Now, I get what I purely get the pro life position on this. I'm not denying that when the sperm meets the egg, it's a life, all of that stuff. Okay, fine. But think about this. Florida, which is thought of as this red, right wing, Ron DeSantis state. They did a three and a half month abortion law, and nobody cared. I don't mean nobody cared in such a good way. And what I mean is they passed it and it was thought of as a compromise, and it wasn't controversial. It wasn't on the front page of The New York Times or Washington Post. It was like, oh, here's a compromise. So that shows you that red states are willing to compromise, because if it was a purely red state position, they'd have no abortion or it would have the most minor exclusions, right? So that's what Florida did. Someone told me this and you can confirm it for me last night. I didn't know this till after the show that Arizona I think did the exact same thing. Very similar. 15 weeks. So think about that. You've got two states, Arizona, I consider a red state. And I think it will get redder. I think you're going to be okay here. We got to fix it. I know you got some things to do, but I think you're going to be okay. But the point is that the red states are showing a willingness to compromise. It's the other side that's not
Charlie Explains Gov. Ron DeSantis' Parental Rights Bill in Florida
"Wonderful Ron DeSantis. I mean, how great is Ron DeSantis, by the way? Isn't he amazing? He's just incredible. He passes like the most boring Bill ever, like super boring. Like you ask 99% of people in Fresno, they'd be like, why is this even controversial? Like, get away from me. Like, of course, obviously. Which is super simple, right? Like 5 seconds, 7 year olds should not be taught about transgenderism or sexual matters. Okay, that's it. Should not be taught about gender. You could read the bill yourself at 7 pages, and then the other part is that if health treatment is given to kids, parents have to be notified, okay? That's it. And so it was called the parental rights and education bill. And so this passes and Disney acted acted as if that somehow this was like a Jim Crow two against trans people or whatever. And they start running these advertisements, like this is a war on trans people. Excuse me, how is not teaching 5 year olds about these very and albeit confusing and highly politicized radical matters, an attack on trans people. And then what was amazing is you saw so many teachers come out and be like, I will not know how to teach my kindergartners anymore about math. That tells me a lot about what you were actually doing in math class. If you're not allowed to talk about anyway, I don't even want to talk about it in public. It's really disgusting, honestly. That's what we used to have words for people like this and that you could fill them in. It's not right. And so, but then most Americans look at this and you feel as if you feel like you're losing your mind at times and you watch the news. It's okay, it's actually part of the design. They want you to feel that way. You're like, wait a second. There's nothing controversial about this. Like 5, 6 and 7 year olds deserve to be protected in their innocent state. I'm not going to apologize for that, then Disney does this whole thing where they're like threatening against the governor of governor Florida. And honestly, Ron DeSantis responded correctly. He told me to cut it out. They didn't. He told him to cut it out again. He didn't. And so he treated Disney like a child because Disney doesn't care about children anymore. He said, okay, what do you do when a child misbehaves after the first couple of times? You punish him put in time out. And he said, okay, Disney, you're losing your $200 million a year tax bonus from the special carve out from the people of Florida like, okay, you're now going to go after the children of Florida and act as if we're the enemies.

Gov. DeSantis: Whoever Leaked Opinion Needs to Be Held Accountable
"Listen to Ron DeSantis yesterday in Florida. And I think it was really an attack on a lot of the justices. I think there was an intentional thing to try to whip up a lot of the public, to try to make it very political, potentially try to bully them into changing one of their positions. And that is not something that's appropriate for the judicial branch. And so I hope I knew they launched an investigation. They need to figure out who did that. And they need to hold them accountable because that's a real significant breach of trust. You want to talk about an insurrection. That's a judicial insurrection to be taking that out and trying to kneecap a potential majority through kind of extra constitutional means. And so I was really surprised to see that. But so we'll see what ends up being the
Newt Gingrich: Donald Trump May End up as the Nominee
"Here's Newt Gingrich. Last night, on Fox News channel, really smart one of the smartest men I've ever met. And of course, a veteran of political battles, the Speaker of the House, the author, the architect rather, of the contract with America, let's listen to what newt said last night on Sean Hannity show. Look, I think we have a lot of great candidates. I personally think Ron DeSantis has a tremendous future as an example, or somebody like Rick Scott, a number of governors around the country. But the truth is, if Trump retains his hold on the base of the Republican Party that he currently has and particularly if he starts shifting towards describing a better future, I think that he will consolidate and almost certainly end up as the nominee. Tonight's a very big night in terms of 2024, as well as in terms of 2022. And it fits what we're saying. The fact is, inflation matters, collapse at the border matters, crime matters, high prices for gasoline and food matters. And in the middle of all this, the corruption of the Biden family matters and I think the Democrats are going to discover that the January 6th committee doesn't matter to most Americans, and they're going to discover that a hard line pro abortion extremism doesn't appeal to most Americans. And in fact, will accelerate their loss of African American and Latino voters who are culturally conservative.
Nilsa Alvarez Unpacks America's Political Truth
"Now you've worked on some very successful campaigns. You've advised the senator Rick Scott Ron DeSantis, a worked on the Trump campaign. Can you unpack for us the truth of what's been happening politically in the last ten years in America? Because if you look at the figures from 2020, it is remarkable, of course this will be denied by the left behind closed doors. They're very worried about it, of course. But if you look at the figures for minority support for this non politician for president Trump, you see not only a 12 13 million vote increase between 16 and 20, you also see the highest rate of minority support for president Trump in the black and the Hispanic community in comparison to any Republican candidate or incumbent since the 1960s, so is it too much to say Nelson that this is an awakening? Can you unpack for us what is happening? Because we've been told for so long that, oh, the Democrats succeeded. They painted the GOP with a brush that they don't care. They're not interested in the minority of vote. What's changed in the last decade? Well, that's an amazing question. And just to bring some perspective when I serviced these different campaigns, it was under the umbrella of the GOP as a faith and Hispanic engagement director where I managed several campaign offices one for Trump in Hialeah in 2016 and then desantis and Scott in 2018 and Broward county. And so in 2015, the data was showing us and because I'm a pastor's wife and my connections were really in the ministry world. I would say that the data was showing that only 5% of church goers were participating in primaries, which is a very, very bad, it was just bad news for the evangelical and the Hispanic faith vote. So we started a very aggressive voter registration operation with our network of ministries and it ended up being the largest voter registration operation in the state of Florida, leading into 2016. And because so much was at stake in 2016, just the body of price in the Hispanic faith community started waking up and starting. We started having a record number of Hispanics that were registering as Republicans at our voter registration drives, not because we were waving a partisan banner, but because when they understood which party stood for their Hispanic conservative values, they started realizing on their own. Oh my gosh, I'm
The Question That Charlie Gets Asked Non-Stop
"Ron DeSantis runs against Trump, are you going to vote for it? Okay, so I get this. I get this question nonstop. And that really tells you something. It's like a fourth or 5th time I've got that question. Okay, I'll give you the same answer. I'll answer it personally, not on behalf of turning point. Let me answer it this way. So Ron DeSantis very well could be a once in a generation statesman. He could be a Lincoln or a Churchill, and he's been totally phenomenal and amazing. If they run against one another, I'm a loyal person. I'm a loyal person as someone who I've been honored to call a friend who I believe was a great president and would be a great president again. And let me tell you why. And this is not a slide at the Santa, obviously. I think he's wonderful. I think he'd be a good president, but I know Trump was a great president. And I'm a loyal person. I gave him my word that if he ran again, I would support him. I'm not a guy that does that and falters. You wouldn't want me to be that type of guy either, right? He's a person that when I had no following, no credibility. And kind of was just like this 21 22 year old. He saw something special in our movement and spoke at our events and invited me to The White House, and he really poured energy and time and resources into our movement. And I don't forget that. I don't just kind of discard it. That's not how I was raised, and I don't think that would be the right thing to do. And obviously you guys would make your own decisions in that regard, but I would say this, that if you win a presidency once, and then the second time you run, it's the most interfered with election in history with ballots going everywhere and Zuckerberg with $400 million. I believe you have earned the right to run for the presidency again, especially after the mess that we're seeing all around us.
Report: Conservatives Are Split About Florida's Actions Over Disney
"There's a story out talking about how conservatives are split are divided on the state of Florida, stripping Disney of the special tax and regulatory exemptions that Disney enjoys through the reedy creek improvement district. Some folks over at the national review don't forget national review famously with their never Trump edition right before the 2016 election, desperately trying to stop Trump from being elected. National review, these are institutional Republicans. This is the way we used to conduct political dialog in America, the national review way, the genteel, country club, smack each other on the back, and hope that the Democrats play nice with us. Those days are gone. Those days as evidenced by Marjorie Taylor Greene and Jim Jordan and Louie gohmert and others who are boisterous, they're loud, they're in the Democrats face, they're in the media's face, it's a new day, and Ron DeSantis is a new breed of Republican. The elites don't like him. Republican establishment types don't like Ron DeSantis. They certainly didn't like Trump. And they don't like this new way of trying to win. PS, not just trying, but winning. Desantis has had victory after victory after victory based on that town hall that Laura Ingraham had with him last night on Fox News. I think Laura called an Elvis
Chuck Schumer: We Must Remove Trump Tax Cuts & Raise Rates
"Here's Chuck Schumer saying exactly that yesterday I mean Jim queue up for me cut three Here he says if you want to get rid of inflation the only way to do it is to basically hike your taxes here Check this out If you want to get rid of inflation the only way to do it is to undo a lot of the Trump tax cuts and raise rates no Republican is ever going to do that So the only way to get rid of inflation is through reconciliation Gosh It's exhausting having to deal with this kind of stupid Why do we live in this country full of idiots Why Why do we live in a country full of morons How is that Obviously I've been conservatives libertarians and Republicans in the same Democrats I'm obviously not talking I'm talking to the liberal south I'm not talking to you Same people out there but Can we just like can we have a state that passes like an anti boron law Where you have to show an anti moron passport to get in Can we have Florrick Ron DeSantis can you do that Would that be kitchen Was that constitutional Jim shaken said he doesn't think so Can we do that Can we pass an anti more on
Governor Ron DeSantis Is Spearheading the 'Florida Model'
"Florida governor Ron DeSantis is creating a new model. Let's call it the Florida model. And this is turning heads all over the country, turning heads on quite short among fellow Republican governors. Who now go, wow, this guy is really showing how to get it done. How to deal with the media. How to neutralize opposition. And really how to insulate yourself from scandal and from counter attack. And desantis is showing that he's really a multi talented guy in the political sphere. CNN is taking notice as an interesting article that talks about desantis, and it's not negative. It actually has a grudging appreciation for him. I'll just read a few lines. He is a generational talent at seizing headlines. Now, he's stalking here the writer is about desantis star quality. I don't think desantis compares in star quality say to Trump, but nevertheless, he does have that star quality. He knows how to not so much on the force of personality, but more by seizing on the correct issue to put himself out front and put himself in the headlines. CNN goes to talk about his quote campaign inevitability. And this is another important phenomenon. Namely, the idea that I'm unbeatable, I've established myself in Florida. Yeah, you can run against me, but it's gonna be kind of token opposition. And so desantis having won a very narrow late to become the governor is now making it look like his reelection is going to be, well, if not a foregone conclusion then at least a great
Ron DeSantis Evolved From a State Figure to a National One
"Desantis has turned his state position into a national platform more than any governor in recent memory. People have talked about other governors, Greg Abbott and Texas, Christie nome, as being potential candidates in the future, but I think it's probably fair to say that neither of them are commenting or taken as national figures yet. But scientists really is. He's not just taken as a prospect for the future, but as a national figure now. And CNN has noticed that. They go on to talk about the way that desantis has a cross the board been advancing the conservative agenda. Of course, is, well, his very latest move is to set up, but I kind of love the term, the election police. Now, I don't even think this guy has seen 2000 mules yet, but he's clearly aware that a, there's a problem and B, there's a lot of concern on this side of the aisle about that problem. In other words, no one is ready to forget about well, there are a few Republican establishment of those figure out about the 2020 election. Let's not look in the rearview mirror dinesh. Well, we can't really go forward without knowing the truth about what actually happened. So desantis, I think, has a political antenna that recognizes this. And so he's taking steps in that area. He's obviously pulled the tax support for Disney. And I'll talk about that a little bit later in the podcast today. And on the show, he's taken on critical race theory, the Florida, the state of Florida, that recently rejected a whole bunch of math textbooks. Why? Because they have all kinds of emotional and quote social learning. Well, how do you, when you look at an equation, how does it how does it make you feel? You feel sort of intimidated by numbers. And look, I'm not saying that there's no place at all for some consideration of how you feel. But a little bit of ruthlessness, I think, is the right approach. I mean, I say this is someone who was subject to a pretty heavy handed math education. Memorize this. Remember these formulas. And then just apply them to see which one works in a given situation. This is not ultimately about whether you are feeling sad today. This is about getting the correct answer.
Pay Attention to What Ron DeSantis Is Doing in Florida
"Democrats are trying to pull the alarm. They are realizing that one man is remaking the mold. CNN dot com what's left of it. They write, pay attention to what Ron DeSantis is doing in Florida. Not a week goes by CNN rights without Florida's governor's Ron DeSantis proposing or signing some bill that aggravates progressive's worries, civil rights leaders. I love that term civil rights leaders. It's so orwellian. They're the opposite of civil rights leaders. They don't protect civil rights. They protect the criminalization of civil rights. Yeah, civil rights leader, very worried that free speech could be a threat to civil rights. CNN writes or penalizes politically correct corporations. Is that how they're labeling the land now? Disney's a politically correct organization. Oh, I see. Okay, so teaching a 6 year old about sex and transgender and puberty blockers makes you a politically correct corporation. CNN writes Ron DeSantis is a generational talent at seizing headlines. This is the stuff presidential ambitions are made of. This week it was Florida's second major election overhaul in as many years, in which desantis created a new election police force focused on election fraud. It would be under his control, even though he's up for reelection in November. Wait a second. So if desantis is able to put together an election police force, why doesn't every Republican do that?
"ron desantis" Discussed on WLS-AM 890
"Are doubling down on crazy the liberal wing nuts to make sure they have the right to sexualize your kid and make your kid feel different so they can move in and replace you Here Jim queue up for me Nicole Wallace Here is 59 seconds roughly a minute of the craziest you'll ever hear on television even on MSNBC where she appears to imply that Glenn youngkin and Ron DeSantis Republican governors from Virginia and Florida respectively are like Russians who get their soldiers to rape children this is the craziest stuff you will ever see on TV and it's allowed to go on on MSNBC Here listen for yourself And I worry that in covering Glen youngkin and his politics of parental choice all the focus is on how well it worked And even in our conversations about desantis it's about how well they're serving him The truth is dehumanization is a tactic for politics is from war Dehumanization is a tactic speaking is right now through Russians get their soldiers to rape children by dehumanizing them dehumanization as a practice is a tactic of war It's being deployed in our politics and people like you and I sometimes lose the plot and it's effective It's not in substance But even the analysis of these tactics loses sight of what the speech brings us back to which is that dehumanization has a cost right now right now as it's being deployed There are children villagers made this point when don't ask don't tell was introduced Kids will die I'm out of work I don't even know what to say about that Kids are going to die It's like Russian soldiers raping children Folks really an MSNBC Do you have any quality control at all You know I have a show and obviously here we're on about 350 plus stations I have a popular podcast thanks to you and we're the number one show in prime time Saturday night On Fox I'm telling you even with those kind of platforms if I were to go out there and start talking about Joey bag of donuts on CNN like raping children I'm telling you right now they'd be like really bro that's your idea of good content I'm serious They'd be like it's kind of crazy right They don't want to sound like crazy people Are you nuts So because parents don't want their kids taught about sexual orientation and identities in kindergarten it's the equivalent of Russian soldiers raping children and kids are gonna die This person has a serious disconnect with reality This is how adamant they are that they believe they have the right to sexualize your kids and kindergarten Now folks their agenda has always always been about fear What have I just kind of knocked out on this show repeatedly over the last few weeks How the way they win elections is by scaring that the scary Republicans are coming for you if you're trans you're gay you're black you're an immigrant this scary awful evil Republicans They are definitely coming for you Fear is their coin of the realm The left can't do anything without fear That's why the COVID narrative works so great for them Oh my gosh you should be really scared you're going to die at COVID by the way give up your body sovereignty and let us to vaccinate you Let us by even against your will Put that face mask on It's why they fight so vigorously for the face mask two ladies and gentlemen it's not because they believe it works they don't wear it themselves There's multiple videos of these pro mask air quotes pro mask lunatics on the left out at parties without the masks on themselves Why are those videos out there because they don't believe in it either So why are they pushing it here This is it You ready The left needs fear They are never going to get you to give up your liberty and freedom and big R God given rights without fear The only way to get people to voluntarily forfeit away their freedom the only way Only way Is to make sure that they walk into a prison themselves because they believe what's on the outside is more frightening I call it The Walking Dead hypothesis If you're a regular listener you know what it means The only way you'll walk into a prison a prison where you forfeit your own rights away the government prison guards or whatever it may be Is if you believe voluntarily you don't have to be there as if you believe what's on the outside is even more frightening The left needs that fear It's interesting how they accuse conservatives of it but in reality it's the left It is their currency It's all they traffic in It's the mask story personified because the mask is a visual symbol of the fear They want you to fear every day that you're living in a pandemic that they can use to whittle away your civil liberties That's a fact They need this visual symbol of you being conquered They do That's why they love the mask despite the fact that any opportunity they can to get out of the mask because they don't believe in it they will take it They are frauds They traffic in fear They want your kids in school sexualized so they're afraid I'm trans I'm trans bag of donuts Yes you are definitely trans but I'm only in kindergarten I don't know what trans means It doesn't matter you're in I am And you see though an evil white patriarchy Yeah they're coming for you too They hate trans people They do they hate me I didn't even know what trans was.
"ron desantis" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"So Ron DeSantis had a choice to make. Either he was going to stand with the voters of his state and the mission and the promise he made to protect children or he was going to pander to the major corporation the number one employer in Florida and all of the alphabet mafia. Cartel that was pushing against it. Now this is not a anti gay Bill. It's not a don't say gay Bill anywhere. It's an anti grooming Bill. It's against teachers to use their positions of power to communicate extremely radical, graphic, and inappropriate material to 5, 6 or 7 year olds. This should not be controversial. This should have been a unanimous support, Disney should be in support of this, actually. Disney is in the is in the business of producing content for children. But according to Disney, they want 6 year olds to know the inner workings of sexual activity between two men. That's Disney's stated position. Now, let's get to this. Let's get to the tape here. Let's go to cut 20. Ron DeSantis at the bill signing ceremony, where he says clearly, I don't care what the corporate media outlets say. I don't care what Hollywood says. I don't care what big corporations say. Here I stand, I'm not backing down. Ron DeSantis is not just bold, remember, you could be bold for the wrong cause. The warriors of Mao Zedong were bold that they ran into the machine gun fire. The warriors for the emperor of imperial Japan were bold on their side of Iwo Jima. But they weren't courageous because their end was not correct. Ron DeSantis is both bold and courageous. His end is to value the innocence of children above corporate donations above Hollywood approval and above Disney's liking of him. Play cut 20. And so we will continue to recognize that in the state of Florida, parents have a fundamental role in the education, healthcare, and well-being of their children. We will not move from that. I don't care what corporate media outlets say. I don't care what Hollywood says. I don't care what big corporations say, here I stand, I'm not backing down. And we stand with you, Ron DeSantis. We stand with you. As a governor of a major state, a swing state he had every reason to try to water down the bill. He had every reason to try to send it back to committee and try to have them. Cut it up and just like, hey, it's an election year. How many times do you hear from corporate Republicans? It's an election year, okay? We don't want to tick off the voters. We don't want to try to get a little bit of a rumbling of the media. Ron DeSantis couldn't care less. He said, I care more about protecting children than my approval rating, even though his approval rating is going to go up because he's protecting children. Disney came out aggressively again and they said, quote, Florida's HB 1557, also known as the don't say gay Bill, should never have passed and should never be signed in law. What is that a threat Disney? Maybe you're not as powerful as you think you are. You get to generate. Our goal as a company is for this law to be repealed by the legislature or struck down in the courts won't be. And we remain committed to supporting the national and state organizations working to achieve that. We are dedicated standing up for the rights and safety of the LGBTQ+ members of the Disney family as the LGBTQ+ community in Florida.

"Beautiful. I'm of course talking about governor Ron DeSantis. Now, governor Ron DeSantis is a courageous leader. Now, mind you, encourages a lot easier when you have your priorities and your values properly aligned in the rightful hierarchy. We as Christians believe there is a hierarchy to virtue and value. For example, if faith is the most important thing in your life, you can more easily make the right choice when you know it may have a financial implication that making money might not actually be the ultimate value we do not believe. It's the ultimate value on this program. Nor does Ron DeSantis Ron DeSantis does not believe power or political popularity is the highest value. In the hierarchy of good in the view of Ron DeSantis, decisive action despite the backlash that will be received is protecting children is at the top of the hierarchy of what a person in political power needs to do. Even the most extreme, small government minarchist anarchist libertarian can agree that the role of government would be first and foremost to protect those that can not protect themselves, protecting children. This is not a controversial statement, protecting the innocence of children is not just good for the children themselves. It's necessary for a civilization. It's necessary for a society, a nation can not continue if the innocence of children is continually tampered with. If 5, 6 and 7 year olds are alerting things at 15, 16 and 17 year olds shouldn't really be learning. Then the entire social fabric will fall apart, and tyranny will be the only default setting for a generation's innocence who is lost because they're going to try to default the default setting will be to somebody that could tell them what to do. When innocence is lost it creates a widespread moral chaos. It creates a country that is in a state of confusion, hysteria. Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida had a choice to make. Now, mind you, I've spent a lot of time in Florida. I was formally a resident in Florida before I came here to Arizona. Every state kind of has a lobby that the entrenched political class is afraid of confronting. I'll be going to Arkansas. Actually, I fly into Arkansas. What do I get in there? Well, tomorrow. When I get into Arkansas, when you land in Arkansas, it's well known that you could do whatever you want to do politically, but you do not cross Walmart. That all roads to political power in Arkansas go through Bentonville. That the multi-billion megaplex will control public policy all throughout Walmart. I'm all throughout Arkansas. That is what works in art because every state has a couple employers like that. Every state has a couple of companies that basically run the whole state in Washington. It's Amazon and Microsoft. In California, it's Facebook and Google. Every state has a couple massive companies where you just kind of back off and say, all right, I'm not going to sign that Bill. I'm going to do whatever is necessary. Well, in Florida, that company is Disney. Not just because of the multimedia component but of course Disney World. Which basically runs Orlando now Ron DeSantis stared Disney down one of the largest employers one of the most powerful special interests in the state of Florida and won..

"It. So I want to ask you about this story this morning, breaking the last 24 hours. Biden comes out and says, no more emergency use authorization for monoclonal antibodies. Ron DeSantis is really irritated with this. Some people are saying it's not working as well against all Macron. There isn't a definitive answer on that, but just talk about, let's just talk more broadly about what monoclonal Regeneron has been able to positively do the last 6 or 9 months. And what is the thought process behind this? So this has been a fantastic addition to our armamentarium. The monoclonals from Regeneron have really helped a lot. They saved a lot of lives. We have other things that have saved a lot of lives. I won't even go down the list because it's so many. So if anybody thinks it's Ivermectin hydroxychloroquine, I literally can tell you there's a dock that we're real familiar with 7000 patients without hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin with only two deaths. So we've literally have in a way it's because inflammatory Charlie, it's an inflammatory disease and it's a blood clotting disease. We have drugs for blood thinning and inflammation. But let's go back to the monoclonals. The monoclonals are real specific. So each time they're made into think of an antibody as being like a car key is very specific. So as the virus mutates, it may or may not work so well. And there is some concern. But we really don't know. They literally just shut them down. I'll tell you this. I hate to reveal this, but I'm going to say it. We know some of the people that are doing some of the work on sequencing and we're still seeing a good amount of delta. So Regeneron is still working against delta. And some states there's very little, but in some states are still a good amount of delta. So this is the we call this Charlie the practice of medicine. There's a nuance. So in other words, just getting stuff from the CDC and the FDA, now multiple people's minds, they are not group of 17,000. Doctors and scientists is more than the NIH more than the CDC and FDA. So people need to hear that. And these guys are world class. We are doing our own data, because they're not doing it right. So the Regeneron works and the shape, but we don't have our own data for that, that it doesn't work. And there's one from GlaxoSmithKline that does work against on the crime, but we're not we don't have access to it yet. So people should be excited about the monoclonals. People should know that they are working, the government has hamstrung us and they should feel upset about it because we literally spent billions on other strategies that clearly don't work. It's beyond maddening and Ron DeSantis is saying this is going to cost people's lives and that's the most important point. I said that on our show, I said, there's still delta out there on Macron hasn't isn't the only variant and wouldn't it be wiser prudent at the very least to trust doctors and then also keep the centers open? What if there's another unexpected variant? I mean we got monkeys running around Pennsylvania infecting people. And that's not a joke. I mean, you got all sorts of weird stuff going on. I want you to wait right there. I want to ask you about doctor the 17,000 doctors. I think it's so interesting and so admirable and honestly difficult to put together that many people to agree on to anything. To get 17,000 people to agree on anything is incredible, let alone doctors. So doctor erso, 17 thousand doctors, that's incredible. What did they sign on to? So we originally started the movement all the way back and I was working with all these doctors and many different venues. When we started with Pierre kory, myself, Peter McCullough, and eventually brought Malone in. And then we kind of we didn't really agree on some things. So we kind of split apart a little bit. And then as the data started coming in on the vaccine, we decided, hey, let's form this group. Let's literally try to make a difference. Let's literally try to be cohesive because they're trying to pick us apart one at a time. And at the end of the day, all of us have really great science backgrounds. And we were just trying to make sure that we wouldn't get picked apart..

"You, even though they might be hurting you. Hours before the FDA shut down the monoclonal antibody treatments to push the pills, CBS, just run an article about how difficult it is to find. The therapeutic pills. So these pills are expensive, they're questionable in its efficacy and they're hard to find. But don't worry, we're going to revoke monoclonal antibodies. If you actually follow the CDC guidelines, and many of you have many of you have probably lost loved ones to COVID that was probably unfortunately tragically and inexplicably very preventable. Many of you have probably lost loved ones to COVID. And a doctor probably just told you, go home that gets bad enough go to a hospital. We have thousands of emails from people. They said they went to the hospital in the last 9 months. With a loved one or they loved one checked in and they were advocating on that loved ones behalf. The hospital refused treatment of Ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, refused monoclonal antibodies. We're talking about hundreds of thousands of deaths. Hundreds of thousands of deaths. A domestic. Campaign against one's own citizens, unlike anything we've ever seen. Now here's the question and here's the test for governor Ron DeSantis. Ron DeSantis sends out a good press release. But that doesn't do enough for me. And it shouldn't for you. Ron DeSantis condemns Biden's haphazard decision to revoke authorization of lifesaving, monoclonal antibody treatment. Ron DeSantis, if you want to be president, here's what you do. You tell Biden, we're not listening. Ron DeSantis, if you want to be president, which I think one day you could be, you're America's best governor, you are, in a battleground state and you've been heroic at every single corner. Well, now you have a chance to save your constituents lives, and if nothing else, you have a chance to build a constitutional showdown with the regime. Who gave Biden the authority to tell a doctor in Gainesville, Florida, whether or not they can use monoclonal antibodies to save their patients. Is Joe Biden going to go in and say, hey, you know, you can't use hydroxychloroquine for lupus anymore, even though millions of people use it for lupus. The basically they are, by the way. We're on to Santa has an opportunity. I think he's going to step up. Ron DeSantis need to say Joe Biden we're not listening to you. We're going to keep on ministering this treatment. We don't care if the FDA doesn't say it's approved. We're going to do our own deal, have a nice life. Ron DeSantis should openly defy Joe Biden on this issue. Joe Biden will back down. What is Joe Biden going to send in the FBI to go arrest a bunch of doctors that are administering monoclonal? Maybe. I'm not kidding. That actually might happen. I'd love to see the optics of that. Doctors that are trying to save their patients lives, you're going to tell me Joe Biden's going to bring in the feds like he did with the diary with James O'Keeffe. When Joe Biden was like, go indict Steve Bannon. Go, raid Rudy Giuliani's home. Go raid James O'Keefe's home. Ron DeSantis has an opportunity to step up and show the constitutional structure, separation of powers, consent to the governed, independent judiciary, but also that the states created the federal government, the federal government to not create the states. Florida is a sovereign state. Regardless of what the regime tries to tell you, the FDA has no business, I don't care if there's some sort of guidance memo by some regulatory Pfizer puppet at some level of the FDA that wants to try to get the stock price higher because they want to retire in a couple years and get some board seat on their merger and acquisition board of Pfizer so they could go live on some, you know, vacation home in Naples. Couldn't care less. Instead, what I care about is saving people's lives. And Ron DeSantis should tell Joe Biden. Regeneron works, monoclonal has saved lives. Take a hike on the governor of Florida. I don't know who you think you are. We're going to keep administering the treatment of Ron DeSantis doesn't do that. Then he will fall in line. Like the other week, Republican governors of which he is not and allow his citizens to die. We'll see what he does..

"What do you do when the government prevents you? Maybe a governor, maybe a leader, maybe a stakeholder from treating or helping your constituents. How do you even process such a thing when one level of government decides to crush another that very well might help save the lives of our citizens? Now, we've gone through in great detail the war on early treatments. We don't need to rehash that. We have plenty of content around that on how our government, the federal government, has openly committed crimes against humanity in restricting azithromycin and Ivermectin hydroxychloroquine many other treatments. But now we have a new story, a new wrinkle. That is a new low for this regime. Governor desantis condemns Biden administration's haphazard decision to revoke authorization of lifesaving monoclonal antibody treatments. Governor Ron DeSantis is demanding that the Biden administration reversed its sudden and reckless decision to revoke emergency use authorization. For Regeneron, an Eli Lilly monoclonal antibody treatments. This abrupt and unilateral action by the Biden regime will prevent access to lifesaving treatments for floridians and Americans. The story is this FDA restricts use of two monoclonal antibody treatments. I know people's lives who are saved by monoclonal antibodies. Now, their argument is like, well, it's not working that well against all Macron. Well, if not working that well as the standard for revoking, emergency use authorization, then maybe you should pull some EUA permits for vaccines. Not working that well. First of all, there's no clinical data to support that. Second of all, there is massive momentum amongst doctors action on the front lines of how monoclonal antibodies help condition the response and help with Regeneron regenerating white blood cell treatment and they are lifesaving in some cases. Not all the antibodies are effective. It doesn't work all the time, which is why you need to throw the kitchen sink at it. With all the other treatments, but now the federal government is coming out and they're saying nope, not happening. You are not allowed to use monoclonal antibodies. We are going to get in the way of what doctors are able to do with their patients. Now, we've already used all the words on this show. We know that Joe Biden has no concern whatsoever for the mounting deaths preventable deaths of people that have died from COVID-19 isn't care about the 100,000 plus overdose deaths. But what does he care about then? What is the explanation for this? Well, the FDA justification is they say, well, it's unlikely to be active against the Alma cron variant. Oh, unlikely. Not that it doesn't work, not that they have clinical data to show that monoclonal antibodies are doing harm. No, just that it's unlikely. So they revoke the emergency use authorization. But the real reason is to push the Pfizer and Merck pills as the primary authorized Therapeutics. You see, they don't want you to go to a monoclonal antibody site. They want you to help Pfizer stock price, which is not doing very well right now. Because Pfizer owns our government, just like the cine ola cartel owns the Mexican government. We are a pharma controlled state, Mexico is a narco controlled state. They're going to have a new Netflix series not called narcos just called pharma. That will be the story of our federal health officials and our politicians that take money from Pfizer AstraZeneca Moderna Johnson & Johnson and push the products on.

"To shake the guy's hand as the crowd cheer. And this caught everyone by surprise in terms of you know ron to santa's who has been a strong supporter of vaccines finds himself Getting more allied with anti vaccines. I'm jeremy siegel. This is politico dispatch and today gary out on how and why rhonda santa's has gone from vaccine spokesman to conspiracy theory bystander. Before we go any further. I just want to ask. Why is this important. Like why should we care nationally about disentis and what he says and doesn't when it comes to cove it because i think the rhonda scientists right now barring trump running again. I think the antithesis clearly the front runner for twenty twenty four. I think all the polls show that they show that he has gotten a lot of national attention. He's on fox news constantly. he's he's been ostensibly raising money for his reelection campaign but he's been hitting a lot of states he was in nebraska this past weekend. He's been to california. He's been to wisconsin. He's been to pennsylvania. He's become a hot ticket. I mean a lot of republicans across the country are viewing him as a potential heir to trump. so what happens in florida which is also the third largest state in the nation it could have ramifications well into twenty twenty four if disentis remains position as a presumed front runner and challenger to biden. So let's talk about de santa's of transformation here. Because you mentioned the surprise you felt when he stood shoulder to shoulder with someone telling lies about vaccines at an anti vaccine mandate announcement earlier this week. How have we seen to santa's transform on this so the beginning of this year the governor was gung ho about vaccines. He i mean he was even at the white house. For an event and operation warp speed last winter went to the white house and talk to the white house about the vaccine. I would always tell my folks. We hope we get the vaccine. But you should definitely not count on it because it's ambitious. It hasn't happened before so the fact that it is. That's a great testament to operation. Works being all the work that so many people have done so we couldn't soon as the pfizer news came out. I flew up with you. I work speed. And i told my folks we have been planning for it but i was like we get a better sense of the timeline. Let's make sure that we're leading from the front. We really wanted to embrace this. I know other. And then you have all these events across the state. They set a pop-up clinics so it was very much promoting vaccine especially among the elderly which is a large contingent of the population of florida. The best thing you can do if you haven't gotten the vaccine particularly if you're somebody who's older particularly if you have any health problems is to is to is to get a shot so it is an interesting split screen here to have him going from this position where he was like encouraging people to get vaccines doing all these efforts to to get vaccines to where he's at an event where people are now raising conspiracy theories about vaccines. What's behind that shift on vaccines. Well his administration and the people around him and say that basically he's not opposed to vaccines and and let's let's be clear to point out. He has gotten vaccinated and he has not really said anything. Negative about the vaccines. He's diluted the message. Fortunately the state of florida passed the law this most recent legislative session that get a lot of different things. It prevented a private businesses from requiring proof of vaccination to just do normal things like go to a movie or go to a restaurant vaccine passports but that also applied to government agencies and so has cut a deemphasize that he started to say things. Like you know well. The vaccine haven't worked out the way we thought they would in terms of creating herd immunity. I think we had assumed that it would provide more sterilizing immunity and said the positive tests and people like well. Is this happening. I was vaccinated. Shouldn't happen and all. I can tell you is what the data we see in the hospitals. We talked to all point that this is helping reduce dramatically mortality particularly. Where he he's talked about breakthrough breakthrough infections and things of that nature so again. He's not saying anything completely anti but it's still been an evolution and so the question is well what caused this evolution. Is it because there is an element within the republican base. That is skeptical of vaccines is it because Former president donald trump got booed when he mentioned vaccines at a recent rally in alabama. I recommend taking the vaccine's i did it. It's good take the vaccines but you got. That's okay you got your freedoms his administration insists no he's anti mandate he's not anti vaccine but it's been an interesting juxtaposition from where we were at the start of the year till now. I guess i'm wondering though like with talking about breakthroughs. Of course that makes sense and as an observer with the anti mandate stances you can see how the politics of that can totally make sense especially when you consider people you might be trying to win the support of as a future presidential contender appealing to me notions of choice with it but misinformation is a totally different beast. Right when it comes to a deadly pandemic like how do you as a reporter parse the difference between politics and the dangers of conspiracies. When it's governor standing side by side with someone talking about conspiracies. Well i mean. I i did want to point out that he was asked about this on tuesday and then on tuesday he said well. I don't remember the person saying that. And the guy. He stood right next to talking at his press conference right and then he said and it was something i would never say. I mean when he's been asked about vaccines he's said. Well you know i did. Fifty plus events The beginning of the year promoting vaccines but again. I mean it. It's just. I know that we quote a health expert in our story. The that says this mixed messaging can cause problems because you can create doubt and anxiety among people when you do not seem to be as strong message as you once swore so public health wise. Why is that so important in florida right now. What is the situation there. Well what you have is a situation where the delta variant may have gone on longer and caused more illnesses and deaths than maybe the administration was anticipating when the delta variant i began to effective floridians. The governor said that it was it was it was. It was a wave like the way that they had had in the summer of twenty twenty and that he expected it to start to diminish august like it had the previous year. And that's not really what happened. And in fact florida reached record highs in terms of the numbers of infections and in terms of number of hospitalizations. It's hard to get a complete staff shot of the situation with fatalities but suffice to say. Roughly ten thousand people have been added to the total tally for deaths since late july. And that's about twenty percent of florida's death total and clearly. There are some dynamics here. I mean you you have. The possibles are reported. That a lot of the people who were in fact showing up we're unvaccinated and what we've seen is it appears that maybe a crest has been reached. Cases are beginning to go down. Hospitalizations are beginning to go down. And that's happened within the last one to two weeks so maybe maybe the rough patches over but still it's sort of.

You know we talked a little bit of it in the first segment about. How are you know. Our focus should now be on getting our allies out out of immediate danger whether it's to another nato allied country or alad country in the region or to the united states. But also how you think we're going to break through this refugee red tape. Bs that Has been and will continue to prevent particularly republicans who don't want any refugees to come in from from afghanistan. Well that's a good question. I the quick answer is it. It'll to be an executive order. And the long answer is we got to end this endless seemingly endless sniping at each other from either side of the political spectrum and the republicans. I often say the democrats are the party with no head. And the republicans are the party with no hearts and the republicans are just lost on so many issues when it comes to things like you know empathy humanity. Yeah common courtesy decency. it's an authoritarian cult and if that doesn't change than whoa beyond the united states and it doesn't matter if it's refugees from afghanistan or more than likely that you know the poor people in the inner city who don't get a chance to live a decent life and can't boat. Yeah i mean at this point you know. California should be taking in refugees from florida. Covert refugees which. Hey but i you know the the red tape is the problem and you know you know with your comment about the head and the heart on the democrat side. Now we got most the doctors and scientists so Feeling good about our chances but you know the the messaging We gotta get better at the messaging and so not only is the messaging now the first impression that biden botched this withdraw and there are problems. Don't i'm not gonna say there aren't any problems here but you know people take the first impression in the first message and we need to make it a stronger better message. Yeah what the democrats need to do is take a lesson from james carville who fought and did not was instill doesn't hesitate to get mccotter with republicans and he said look. Our ideas are better than theirs. I don't like their ideas. He said but what i what he respects about. The republicans is that they fight and get up in the morning and they fight and democrats. Just think that the ideas will carry the day. And that's one of the problems of the biden administration is they don't understand. They think that kick you know. Donald trump to the curb in trumpism is over with. And it's not and until they come to grips with the fact that this country is still divided and that they have the fight and a little more james carville in them with i think bode better bode well for the whole. Us nicole wallace said yesterday. She says you know ninety. Five percent of americans agree with biden's decision to pull out of afghanistan while ninety five percent of the media seems to have the opposite idea. And that's my problem there. They're these cable shows. Talking heads. Pundits are actually forming opinions instead of informing allowing people to to to make their own. Yes it's for money and the media has gone from giving us news that we need to treating everyone is a fan and giving the news that they want and until that changes in there are few ways to do it like busting up large media monopolies reinstituting some form of the fairness doctrine Giving a shield law so reports. Don't go to jail if they have confidential sources things like that and then also you know maybe perhaps using public funds to to help you know private enterprise because look. Journalism is incompatible with capitalist. You're going to have to at some point in time realize that journal Zim is there to inform and sometimes what out. Large companies want is not information but entertainment. Which is what we have today. So what can we do going forward to to to try to to try to make that happen to try to get back to some sort of semblance of sanity and reporting and then also to to ensure that we're putting pressure on this administration to to make sure they do. It seems like they're doing the right thing now. The cleanup Of this again terrible. Tragic awful disaster but it was never going to be. It was never going to be easy. No it never was going to be easy and look in in that. Specific case with biden's group did that was wrong with come to the east room and and do a speech. In front of a bunch of reporters he would have been better off sitting in the oval or from camp david pumping it out live and then because you left the press with the impression that they were going to be questions because there were reporters allowed to be there in the eastern and he didn't have any intention of taking questions and i don't blame him but presidents in the past so that was a staging and optics thing that they they should have done better. We we both have to get better first of all. There's no one in government or in the white house that i know of if i'm wrong someone will obviously crack me but i. I don't know of anybody in his case in staff that's ever worked as a reporter any to know what the heck you're doing and how to deal with reporters and that kind of institutional knowledge is needed. Secondly you gotta get better reporters and that you're not going to do unless we go back to. You know if you hire people straight out of school and buddhism out after three to five years because they make too much money..

She says i'll go places where i can perform the city that i love is not the city that i loved anymore. Here's a little bit of her comedy. Just a little flavor.

Libs but mostly just i got my mind set on you just a whole bunch a whole lot of got my mind set on you so ramone do you. Have the opening of chris. Cuomo's show so when andrew cuomo when the attorney general comes out and says yes these folks these women are credible witnesses we believe he sexually harassed them including his employees. The president comes out for him to resign. Nancy pelosi comes out for him to resign. Chuck schumer comes out for him to resign. the other senator hildebrand. What does the guilt of whatever may miss comes out for him to resent the majority of the democrats in the new york. state assembly. Come out for him to resign. There's nothing left so his brother who in the report that was revealed that day was writing. Press pieces for him as to what. You should say how you should answer this. How you should demean and humiliate the women that guy in violation of any sense of journalistic ethics was advising his brother and then bringing his brother on tv to rehabilitate his image. So you figure that guy would maybe take the night off or he would start with a mayor copa. No here's how he started his show. The news continue. So let's chris for cuomo. Prime beam was the one event that she did not get gold in in the last olympic so was special for her but for her to come back from everything. She's been dealing with all the attendant pressure and medal at the olympics. She's amazing b. Thanks for the coverage. I'm chris. cuomo welcomed the prime time. We're focused on covert here especially until we get the delta variant under control in for now as you know. It's getting worse but as we'll discuss tonight. There is an increasing response from leaders and citizens the president today when after specific state leaders to change course so he then proceeded to go after ron santa's and florida just as joe biden. Our border is wide open. We know that thousands of people are coming in with the delta. Variant crime is on the increase across the country in a dramatic fashion. Inflation in every industry of the economy has taken hold. And so what does he do. He criticizes florida. Joe biden and of course chris cuomo criticized rhonda santa's in florida there now more afraid of dissent than they are trump. That's why they've turned the artillery on him. So here is what disentis responded to biden after all this. Why don't you do your job. Why don't you get this border secure and until you do that. I don't wanna hear a blip about kovic from you. See if greg grab it had an ounce of manliness in him instead of spending all his time raising money and running for offices and trying to figure out how to make democrat newspapers happy. That's what he would do. But we thought to put it into perspective with thought we'd take the senses words and and may maybe give them flourish. They deserve if you're trying to deny kids a proper impersonation. I'm gonna stand in your way and i'm going to stand up for the kids in florida if you're trying to restrict people in post mandates you're trying to ruin their jobs and their livelihoods and their small business. If you are trying to lock people down. I am standing in your way. And i'm standing for the people of florida. So why don't you do your job. Why don't you get this border secure and until you do that.
