Fresh update on "ron desantis" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Mike Pence is running for the presidency. I want to... Okay, yeah, there it is. Let's play cut 73, and then I want your reaction, Matt Gaetz. But today, our country's in a lot of trouble. President Joe Biden and the radical left have weakened America at home and abroad. The American dream is being crushed under runaway inflation. Wages are dropping. Recession is looming. Our southern border is under siege, and the enemies of freedom are on the march around the world. And worse still, timeless American values are under assault as never before. We're better than this. We can turn this country around, but different times call for different leadership. Today, our party and our country need a leader that will appeal, as Lincoln said, to the bitter angels of our nature. I have long believed to whom much is given, much will be required. That's why today, before God and my family, I'm announcing I'm running for president of the United States. Matt Gaetz, Mike Pence is running for the presidency. Your reaction? I'm sure Mike Pence's voter is very excited about that announcement. Didn't see a big crowd there with him, and it bears some resemblance to the Chris Christie announcement we saw recently, which seemed to be attended about as thoroughly as a regularly sized Homeowners Association meeting. But in a way, Mike Pence and Chris Christie are victims in the political industrial complex because some consultant somewhere has convinced Mike Pence and Chris Christie that they might be president one day. I know it sounds crazy, but that consultant will win or lose based on the existence of a campaign, but I don't see much of a lane for these folks. I mean, if Chris Christie had run in 2012, he might have won the presidency, but he missed his moment. It's odd. Running for president is like a wave. If you get out in front of it too early, you get just totally crashed, Ron DeSantis type scenario. And if you wait too long, as Chris Christie did, missing his chance in 2012, it can pass you by. So there's all these candidates, Matt. The governor of Florida is running from your home state, and now there's some whispers that the mayor of Miami might be running for the presidency. Matt, what's your reaction? Francis Suarez, the kind of Republican who endorsed Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump and the kind of Republican who endorsed Andrew Gillum over Ron DeSantis. Who knows? Francis Suarez may run with Andrew Gillum as his running mate, for all I know, but he's not the type of Republican we really think highly of in Florida. He's carved out a niche for himself in Miami, where his father also served in the same post as mayor. And I don't know that there's really a political reach for him beyond the 305. So, Matt, I want to get your insight into this. I know we're kind of on boom, boom, boom, but you can handle it. You're built for TV. By the way, when Matt Gates filled in on Newsmax, he had higher ratings than CNN. Is that right? I did. I beat CNN one night and MSNBC the next. All right. So now I'm really going to ask you the hard. Now you're at a level where I can ask you the curve balls and the sliders. So, Matt, the smart money, quote, unquote, says Donald Trump's going to be indicted soon. He's basically saying it. Eric Trump seems to be saying it. This is very concerning. Jim Jordan has sent out a letter saying, you know, we want information about this. But, Matt, this is a direct election interference. They're going to have Donald Trump under multiple indictments simultaneously. Your reaction? I think his numbers will go up. I mean, think about what they're going to indict him for. A dispute with the archivist in the case of Barack Obama and Bill Clinton and the aforementioned Mike Pence and Joe Biden. You find documents that probably shouldn't be in the possession of these individuals. But only with Trump does this emerge in some sort of criminal prosecution, only with Trump. And it's that type of double standard that fuels his political movement and political prospects. So I think he's like the Incredible Hulk. The more you shoot at him, the tougher and stronger and more effective he gets. But it certainly says something far more dangerous about this justice system that in too many ways at the federal level has become the enforcement wing of the political left. And it's why I'm so mad we underwrote $4 trillion in debt to continue funding the whole thing. If you're really mad about the FBI and the DOJ and the weaponized government, you should be voting with me in the United States Congress against the different things that gaslight their ability to continue to grow exponentially. So we use the power of the subpoena pretty effectively under Speaker McCarthy's leadership, and he is owed credit for that..

"Trout. This is America in the Morning. California officials are investigating whether Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was behind a private flight that brought asylum seekers to the Golden State. As correspondent Jennifer King reports, both Governor Gavin Newsom and California Attorney General Rob Bonta are saying legal action against those sending the migrants across the country isn't the table. off A group of 16 migrants from Colombia and Venezuela were taken from El Paso, Texas to Sacramento and left on the doorstep of the Roman Catholic Diocese headquarters on Friday. Another group of 20 arrived Monday. had We no idea that they were coming. Bishop Jaime Soto said local faith -based charities were scrambling to find shelter for them. two The groups never went through Florida, but California Attorney General Rob Bonta says Virtol Systems, which was paid by Florida to fly migrants to Martha's Vineyard last year, appears to be behind the flights. California Governor Gavin Newsom says the state's Department of Justice is investigating the circumstances around who paid for the travel and whether those orchestrating the trips misled anyone with false promises. He lashed out on Twitter calling Florida Governor Ron Man and quoting a section of California criminal code as he suggested the flights might qualify as kidnapping. DeSantis, who is seeking the Republican nomination to run for president, has been a fierce critic of federal immigration policy and has made Florida's migrant relocation program one of his signature priorities, using state money and working with multiple contractors to carry out the flights.

Can Bitcoin Avoid the Partisan Curse?
"Today on Long Reads Sunday slash Saturday, where I want to start is with some further analysis around Ron DeSantis's announcement that he was a running for president and B in so doing was hoping to protect Bitcoin. Because this isn't a political show, I didn't get into the politics of DeSantis in America, although they are, of course, very complex. Plenty of people have pointed out that his focus on the freedom that Bitcoin creates is perhaps inconsistent with some of his other positions. But holding aside specific policies, there's also questions of what his embrace of Bitcoin suggests about how it fits into the larger partisan framework. CoinDesk's Daniel Kuhn wrote a piece this week called DeSantis and the Growing Culture War Around Bitcoin. Daniel writes, This week, CoinDesk published one of the most thought provoking and balanced articles on Bitcoin mining I've ever read. The report is focused around the Greenwich Bitcoin Mining Company in upstate New York, which was at the center of a protracted media cycle last year after environmental activists claimed the facility was boiling the waterways and poisoning delicate ecosystems. Those claims went on to influence an actual policy decision by Governor Kathy Hochul restricting Bitcoin mining in the state. The thing is, most of the worst claims about Greenwich were straight up wrong. CoinDesk's Nick D, Doreen Wang, and Cheyenne Ligon took a trip to Dresden in upstate New York to take the temperature of the lake and speak to locals, finding that not a single lawmaker visited the Rust Belt town or spoke to its mayor before drafting what is essentially a freeze on new Bitcoin miners. Most of the Bitcoin mining debate today has centered around the Bitcoin network's environmental impact. Greenwich became a lightning rod because before the company moved equipment into the plant that now uses natural gas, it was deactivated, meaning that when the miners were turned on, they weren't just drawing on electricity that would have been produced anyway, but actively releasing quote unquote fresh carbon into the atmosphere. The Bitcoin network uses as much energy as a country like Norway, and trying to wrap your head around whether that is or isn't worth it often comes down to your point of view on how you value permissionless money. Individuals can certainly make up their minds on the matter, but how a state should treat Bitcoin, for instance, whether mining should be encouraged or banned, is a societal level conversation involving politicians, stakeholders, and those affected.

CNN Political Briefing
"ron desantis" Discussed on CNN Political Briefing
"Hey everyone, I'm David Chalyan, the CNN political director. This is the CNN Political Briefing. Here's what you need to know in politics for Friday, May 26th. Subtle no more. Ron DeSantis, on his first full day as a presidential candidate, goes straight at the frontrunner, Donald Trump. Two things became very clear in Ron DeSantis' first full day as a presidential candidate. One, he has some pretty aggressive ideas for what to do as president on day one and more broadly. He said he would fire the FBI director, Christopher Wray, on day one, concerned about weaponization of the federal government and of the Justice Department in America. He also said he believes in a more expansive sense of presidential power. Listen to what DeSantis told Fox News about how he would employ Article 2 of the Constitution. Reconstitutionalizing the administrative state. We have a bureaucracy that's totally out of control. You need to be willing to use Article 2 power to bring the administrative state to heel. I will do that. While he spent the day in a flurry of conservative media interviews, DeSantis was also asked on the Clay and Buck radio show about those who have been convicted of crimes related to January 6th and if he as president would issue pardons for some of the January 6th rioters. I'm going to do on day one. I will have folks that will get together and look at all these cases who people are victims of weaponization or political targeting and we will be aggressive at issuing pardons. I would say any example of disfavored treatment based on politics or weaponization would be included in that review no matter how small or how big. So you hear there DeSantis hasn't even ruled out pardoning Donald Trump if indeed he is convicted of any crimes related to January 6th, but certainly we'll take a look at each case no matter how big or small he said. In addition to showing us how he plans to serve as president out of the gate or at least his current thinking on that, Ron DeSantis also made clear on day one of his presidential campaign that the not so subtle references of the last few months when he would try to throw an elbow ever so gently in Donald Trump's direction, those days are over. Ron DeSantis on day one throughout these interviews went headfirst taking on Donald Trump and pointing out where he thinks Donald Trump has gone off course. Listen to DeSantis take on Trump when he was talking to conservative radio host Matt Murphy on Thursday on immigration, on runaway government spending in the Trump years and on the issue of abortion. Well, he's obviously attacking me from the left. I mean, I think he's attacked me for opposing an amnesty bill. I opposed him on that because I'm opposed to amnesty. He also attacked me for opposing some of these spending bills and I did because it was a waste of money. He said he was going to eliminate the national debt when he ran in 2016. He ended up adding almost 8 trillion to the debt in four years. And so he's running to the left. He's opposed to Florida's fetal heartbeat bill, which I signed into law, which says an unborn child gets legal protections when there's a detectable heartbeat. And so these will be interesting debates to have. But I can tell you, you don't win nationally by moving to the left. You win nationally by standing for bold policies. DeSantis, while talking to Newsmax on Thursday, also made the electability pitch that he thinks he's got a better shot in a general election to defeat Joe Biden than Donald Trump has. I do believe that there's a limit to the number of voters that would consider the former president at this point. I mean, we've seen it, you know, in Florida. We've seen in places like Georgia. I think that there are some people that don't like Biden, but they would like another option. So I think my ceiling is higher in a general election. And in an interview on the radio with the Pulse of New Hampshire on Thursday, DeSantis says Trump has been coming after him because he clearly sees DeSantis as a threat. He understands that I've got a good chance to beat him because he doesn't criticize anybody else now. It's only me. They know that I'm more likely to win the election. I mean, they wouldn't do that if they didn't think that I had a chance, because I think they realize I am offering folks a record of achievement that's second to none. For Trump's part, he took to his social media platform, Truth Social, and posted some videos of him straight to camera, aggressively pushing back on DeSantis. Rob DeSantis and his poll numbers are dropping like a rock. I would almost be inclined to say these are record falls. The question is, Rob, just young and experienced and naive or more troubling. Is he a fool who has no idea what the hell he's doing? We already have one of those in office. We don't need another one. Now, yes, these two are clearly primary opponents right now for the Republican presidential nomination. And this is a quickly, fully engaged brawl between these two top running candidates. But you see, there's no mention from DeSantis about his quest for Donald Trump's endorsement, which he eventually got in the 2018 Republican primary for Florida governor, which made a huge difference in DeSantis' chances of winning that Republican primary when he got that Trump endorsement. You hear no mention from Ron DeSantis about his total support for Trump throughout his presidency. So Ron DeSantis now is coming out with some very strong criticism of Trump. But that was not what we were hearing from Ron DeSantis until he was a fully fledged political opponent, primary opponent of Donald Trump's. So that's just what we're getting from DeSantis on the very first day. Now, remember, he's got a jam -packed campaign schedule next week. As soon as the Memorial Day holiday is over, we will see Ron DeSantis campaigning in Iowa, home to the nation's first caucuses, kicks off the whole nominating process. Then he's on to New Hampshire and then to South Carolina. It's a four -day swing through those critical three early states. And we've also gotten some insight into his staying power in this race. That, of course, is his financial strength. The DeSantis campaign reports that in the first 24 hours of the campaign, they raised $8 .2 million. That is nothing to sneeze at. This is a candidate likely to have the resources to go the distance. That's it for today's political briefing. Thanks so much for listening.

Based on the graphic novel by Gene Luen Yang, the series explores culture, identity, and acceptance through the lens of adolescence. American Born Chinese, premiering May 24, exclusively on Disney Plus. Coming up on 5 -Minute News Ron DeSantis presidential launch marred by glitches. White House slams Florida's censorship of inauguration poem. And Trump lawyers seek meeting with attorney general as investigations heat up. It's Thursday, May 25. I'm Anthony Davis. The far -right Florida governor Ron DeSantis said on Wednesday he would seek the 2024 Republican nomination for president, but his live launch audio interview on Twitter with Elon Musk was a technical disaster. DeSantis made his announcement in a video ahead of joining Twitter CEO Elon Musk on the platform. The broadcast of the interview, which had been intended to be the formal launch of the DeSantis campaign, often lost sound and some users were either unable to join or were dropped. It was an inauspicious start for a campaign predicated on the governor's executive competence. The Florida governor's entrance in the Republican contest set up a showdown with his one -time ally, disgraced former president Donald Trump, that will shake up the race for the White House. But polls show Trump with more than a two -to -one edge over the Florida governor. Trump, who announced in November, has also had a head start in organizing his campaign in key early voting states. We must end the culture of losing that has infected the Republican Party in recent years, DeSantis said in the event with Musk once it resumed following a lengthy interruption. The hashtag disaster was trending on Twitter. Supporters and donors will be keenly watching to see if DeSantis now takes the fight to Trump, who has been relentlessly attacking him with little reaction, much to the frustration of some DeSantis allies who wanted him to respond more forcefully. Mainstream Republicans will be watching DeSantis carefully to see if he can recover from his missteps on foreign policy, such as his initial reluctance to express support for Ukraine in its war with Russia. The White House and advocates on Wednesday decried a Florida school's decision to remove the poem that celebrated author Amanda Gorman recited at President Joe Biden's inauguration from the elementary school portion of its library, calling the move censorship. The poem by Gorman, who is black and became the youngest inaugural poet in U .S. history when she gave her stirring reading of The Hill We Climb, offers a hopeful vision for a deeply divided country, praising a United States that is bruised but whole. The Hill We Climb was written so that all young people would see themselves in an historical moment, and that the President and his administration certainly stand with her, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean -Pierre said at a briefing on Wednesday. Banning books is censorship, period, she said, adding, it limits American freedom. The Miami -Dade County Public Schools on Tuesday confirmed that the book had been removed from the elementary school portion of a library used for both middle school students as well as those in younger grades. Gorman herself said on Tuesday that she was gutted after learning that the book, which included the poem, as well as an introduction by Oprah Winfrey, had been moved. She also posted what she said was a copy of a complaint filed against the book by a Florida parent who claimed that the poem indirectly promoted hate and mistakenly identified Winfrey as the author. The complaint and subsequent decision to move the book are the latest examples in Florida and other far -right Christian nationalist Republican -led states seeking to restrict students' access to materials highlighting African -American history, race issues, or LGBTQ rights. The administration of Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has also rejected portions of a proposed new high school advanced placement course on African -American studies, claiming it has no educational value. It has also banned the teaching of critical race theory, a university -level method for discussing systemic racism in the legal system. Lawyers for Donald Trump have asked for a meeting with Attorney General Merrick Garland as a Justice Department investigation into the former president's handling of classified documents shows signs of winding down. In the letter, which Trump posted on his Truth Social platform, attorneys John Rowley and James Trusty asserted that Trump is being treated unfairly and asked for a meeting to discuss the ongoing injustice that is being perpetrated by your special counsel and his prosecutors. The language echoed some of Trump's own complaints in recent months about the investigations being led by independent special counsel Jack Smith. It was not immediately clear what specifically prompted the letter, but the year -long documents probe appeared to be nearing an end. Agents and prosecutors have interviewed a broad cross -section of witnesses, including attorneys for Trump, former White House officials, and other close aides. The investigation is seeking to determine whether Trump illegally retained hundreds of classified documents taken with him from the White House to his Florida home Mar -a -Lago after the end of his tenure, and whether he sought to obstruct government efforts to get the records back. It is not uncommon for defense lawyers to seek meetings with senior Justice Department officials to argue against potential indictments of their clients, though it is unusual for such meetings to include the Attorney General. In addition to the documents investigation, Jack Smith is separately investigating efforts by Trump and his allies to undo and overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

DeSantis launches GOP presidential campaign in Twitter announcement plagued by glitches
"Florida's Republican governors announced that he's officially a candidate for president, but the announcement didn't go exactly as planned. Republican governor Ron DeSantis launched his campaign in a special Twitter space's feed. Criticizing President Biden. He lacks vigor, flounders in the face of our nation's challenges, and he takes his cues from the woke mob. But there were technical problems that led to start and stops, audio glitches, and a delay of nearly half an hour. Desantis was asked why he chose Twitter instead of traditional media. He compared it to his COVID lockdown opposition, lamenting a lack of free expression. You had to put your money where your mouth is. Even that was marred by an audio glitch. This is rivals were rough. Donald Trump tweeted the desantis Twitter launch is a disaster. His whole campaign will be a disaster. And Nikki Haley's campaign also called it a failure. But still, desantis says they raised a $1 million in the first hour after the announcement. I'm Jackie Quinn

"So Mark we have all these things that you and I believe your listeners our shared principles and values and we have a sense of what that would look like in public policy And the idea is to get that if you're in office and get that through a constitutional system so that it can stick and become the policies that govern our state or our country And so what I do is as governor I studied all the authorities that I possess constitutionally statutorily customary policies I knew what I needed the legislature for what I didn't local government Vis-à-vis me and the same thing would apply to the presidency You understand article two powers You understand where your leverage points are You understand your statutory authority You also have to be willing to assert the true scope of article two powers And I think a lot of our presidents have not been willing to do that For example Vis-à-vis the administrative state The founding fathers would have never accepted the idea that you could get elected president and yet the executive agencies could do whatever the hell they wanted to do That is not the way this works And so I view kind of the task at hand for us is the reconstitution of our government I think we need to return the government to its rightful owners which is we the people The only way you'll get that done though is if you go in with a clear plan on day one you spit nails right out of the gate And I think you really need two terms to be able to do it 8 years because every time you make a movement you fire someone it's going to be contested by the left There's going to be lawsuits There's going to be this And you've just got to be disciplined You've got to be determined But I don't see any other way around it Mark because if we keep going in this direction then you can elect people to Congress You can elect a president and all the important issues get decided by unelected bureaucrats If you don't govern ourselves if that's the case
Ron DeSantis: Why the Corrupt Media Is Attacking Casey DeSantis
"And it's interesting to me that the corrupt media now are doing something they never did to Michelle Obama or Joe Biden They're attacking your wife for crying out loud What's that like We knew that this would happen because if she were a Democrat she'd be on free fashion magazine They would be making her to be the biggest deal but because we're conservative we know that that's not what will happen In reality it'll be the opposite where they try to really attack But the reason they're attacking her is because they know she is an incredibly effective First Lady She's somebody that people look up to not just women although many of the women in Florida who have gone through breast cancer look at her as a role model for how she handled it She's made huge improvements to communities in Florida by helping underprivileged people and she believes in the values of this country and she can articulate that in a way that people really get excited about And so she's my best friend She's a great wife a great mother but I'll tell you when I'm out there on a campaign trail There is nobody I would rather have by my side than Casey desantis And the corrupt media knows that They know she's good so they're going to try to fabricate stories about her but the reality is our voters see through this They know the only reason they're going after is because she's effective They know when they're doing the anonymous sources that it's all fabricated BS And so we take it in stride We know this is just something that happens when you get into these things Look as a husband I don't mind when they go after me because I know I mean it is frustrating to see but I think the media is so corrupt and people distrusted so much that I don't think it makes a ripple with Republican and independent voters because I think they see right through it

Amanda Gorman's poem for Biden's inauguration banned by Florida school
"A complaint from a parent is landed a poem written for President Biden's inauguration on a restricted list at a Florida elementary school. It's not clear what in the poem the hill we climb by Amanda Gorman is objectionable to a Miami Lake's parent, but daily Salinas says she doesn't favor eliminating or censoring any books, but she does want materials to be appropriate for students. Florida's governor Ron DeSantis has made headlines with his policies that promote books censorship. The nation's first national youth poet laureate then 17 year old Amanda Gorman, said her poem, which was read January 20th, 2021, was intended to be a message of hope, without ignoring the evidence of Discord and division in the country. In response to the restrictions at the school. She says she's gutted and concerned that authorities are robbing children of the chance to find their voices in literature. I'm Jackie Quinn

How Is the Media Going to Frame Ron DeSantis' Campaign?
"Ron DeSantis is going to jump into race today I've got a few thoughts on this today I don't want to relay the game what we've already addressed and spoken about which is the fact that primaries are a good thing In short because they keep candidates frosty I've already spoken about it a few times so I don't want to repeat that show and some of you are frankly tired of hearing it I don't blame you I say because I ran in primaries and you went I didn't have a serious primary I was a little softer by the time I got to the general because you're just not frosty You still like beating people up okay But there's a couple other things I wanted to talk about two big takeaways to this first How is the media going to frame The Ron DeSantis campaign And the way to find out what the media is up to When I say frame I mean you would think a standard journalist reporter correct would just want to report the news and the facts That's a good one That's really freaking funny We're not talking about actual journalist reporters talking about activists They can call themselves whatever they want Journalists reporters but they're really activists right We get that okay So point stipulated So the question is never are they going to cover the desantis campaign Honestly they won't It's how are they going to frame it Now the media has got a bit of a dilemma here and the dilemma is this How do we crap on run desantis without making Trump look good Because there's nobody in politics Nobody they hate more than Donald Trump Nobody There's not even a close second There's like a top 5 lace Tucker's on there Levin's on there They hate anybody But they hate Trump more than anyone So the problem they have now the media I think what's the problem Just cover the campaign opposite they can't do that bro they're activists They're activists

DeSantis plans to announce 2024 bid Wednesday on Twitter Spaces with Elon Musk, sources tell AP
"The 2024 GOP presidential field will get another high profile candidate tomorrow. Two people with knowledge of his plans say Ron DeSantis will announce his campaign during a Twitter space's audio event with Elon Musk. Desantis is seen as Donald Trump's leading rival for the GOP nomination, and this move has him again taking a page from the Trump playbook. The ex-president used social media to dominate his 2016 rivals. Desantis has long been expected to join the field, but the timing of his announcement had been kept secret GOP senator Tim Scott announced his own bid this week painting himself as an optimistic alternative to both desantis and Trump, Sagar Meghani, Washington.

"From a podcast. Hey guys, I'm Liz dye with me as Andrew Torres, and this is opening arguments episode 7 47. Hey, Liz, how you doing? Oh my God, it's crazy on my beat. It's crazy. Did you see that Eugene Carroll's going to re a mentor complaint to add in the comments that Trump made in that town hall on CNN? Wow. Good for her. I mean, 'cause that was extra strength gross. So good on her. And Trump has filed another crazy ass lawsuit. You and I are still trying to break this one down. It's not Trump. It's Trump media and technology group that company that Devin Nunes runs. And Devin Nunes has brought his sparkle magic libel slander lawyer Steven biss along for the ride and they found a local council who's apparently a one or two lawyer personal injury guy. So that workers comp guy, right? Yeah. Something awesome. It's going to be awesome. We're going to dive into that because that's going to require us to look at some SEC reports and take a minute. They've sued The Washington Post for what $3.8 billion. It's insane. I mean, knock yourself out. Yeah, this $3.8 billion lawsuit bought by Steven biss and I want to work your stop. This is awesome. Anyway, but we're going to try not to talk anymore about Trump during this show, because we're going to talk all about tiny D, Ron DeSantis. I can not wait. Okay, well, it's been a rough week for a little Ron. Who looks to be about to lose yet another battle in his woke war on Disney. It seems like meatball Ron's own Republican allies in the Florida legislature may have mooted his lawsuit seeking to invalidate the princess contract that the reedy creek improvement district signed with Disney, giving it the bulk of its powers on the way out. This comes on the heels of Disney announcing that it isn't going to build a $1 billion office complex in Lake Nona Florida after all. So fight woke, go broke. Is that probably nice, nice. Okay. So none of this is making desantis look like a viable presidential candidate to challenge Donald Trump. Not that he looked like it too, either one of us ever, but this shit ain't helping. Yeah, and look, Ron DeSantis is, can you culture warrior your way into The White House with literally no other credentials whatsoever? And I'm hoping that's no. I don't know. I mean, yeah, that's good, on the other hand, the alternative is Donald Trump. It's not to talk about him anymore, so a lot of low cards in that hand. Yes. That's a funny thing that you say. All right, so let's talk about it. To recap. Florida passed this gross don't say gay Bill in 2022 that made it illegal to acknowledge that LGBTQ people exist in schools. So Disney said nothing, despite positioning itself as a gay friendly company, which supports its LGBTQ cast members, which is what it calls employees. Only after the law had been enacted and after those cast members stage walkouts to protest the company's silence did the CEO bob chapek put out a statement saying our goal as a company is for this law to be repealed by the legislature or struck down in the courts and we remain committed to supporting the national and state organizations working to achieve that. Yeah, wait a way to take a brave stand there. We would like for this maybe to not be a thing, particularly if we don't have to do a damn thing about it. Yeah, brave stand. At that point, governor piss baby snowflake lost his mind and called Disney California corporate executives and promised to fight back when people are threatening our parents and threatening our kids, which is which is a weird thing to say about a company responsible for upwards of $60 billion in cash flowing every single year into Central Florida's economy. Wow. But then desantis and his allies in the state legislature said the quiet part super loud. State rep Randy fine really actually said, you kicked a hornet's nest, things come up, and I will say this. You got me on one thing. This bill does target one company. It targets The Walt Disney Company. They just can't help stepping on it. Anyway, you know, since then, desantis and his allies have renamed the reedy creek improvement district, the not at all orwellian Central Florida oversight tourism board. He's replaced the formerly democratically elected board with a, you know, cadre of gay bashing sycophants selected by governor snowflake himself. And in episode 7 17, we described how Disney outmaneuvered desantis by having the reedy creek board essentially assign all of its powers to Disney on its way out the tour. I love that, which they were all too happy to do. You called those the princess contracts and that's amazing and we are going to keep that language. Right. Well, they did defeat any change to Florida's rule against perpetuities law by tying the contract to the lives of King Charles grandchildren. The youngest of whom is princess lily bat who lives in California. So that seems appropriate. Yeah, I love it. But you know, meatball Ron wasn't gonna take that Lion down, so he proceeded along two equally stupid tracks, right? So one of them was having his pet board retroactively invalidate the princess contracts, which, you know, we told you was all sorts of illegal and that led to Disney filing their lawsuit literally an hour after that happened. That was fun. We broke that one down for you in episode 7 34. And then the second track that desantis went down was having his trolls in the Florida state legislature pass a law amending Senate Bill one 6 zero four and

"ron desantis" Discussed on Simply Bitcoin
"Don't lose your generational wealth because you stored your Bitcoin seat on paper. Don't be that guy. Don't be that person. Anyways, what are your thoughts on this, bro? As a zoomer, does this make your blood boil, bro? What's going on in your head? Yeah, I just think it's a great thing about the U.S. that we could help stop the tyrannical federal government. And it's good that the states have power and they could stop these crazy laws from getting passed. And that's how we win as bitcoiners as we just start from the ground up. You know, you start from the mayor of your city. So we're talking to the congressman and just start from the ground up and you know, because if you want to compete with all these other big industries, you got big oil and all these other monopolies, you know, they're lobbying the government. So as soon as we see a price run up on Bitcoin, start talking to your politicians, start taking them out to nice dinners, start making Friends with the politicians, get Bitcoin friendly, laws pass. And shout out to Ron DeSantis too because it seems like Florida is the only real state left in the United States. If anyone here is from the U.S. and you go and visit Florida, you're like, this is what America is about, you know? People are happy. Businesses are booming. It's gray weather. You're more inclined to move there after you live there. And if let's say the mayor Miami or the Florida state starts putting Bitcoin in their treasury, it's going to persuade me more to move down there. So it starts with the ground up. Absolutely, absolutely. Hold on. The last two free states. Texas and Florida. Let's see who wins. Yeah. You heard it, you heard it. Do not move to Texas and Florida. You guys heard it here first. Anyways. Oh man, oh man, oh man. Anyways, everybody, let's get to the culture. We have a lot to talk about. Let's check it out. The daily culture. Brought to you by

"And so because we would not cooperate with them, they were not able to effectuate that policy, which would have been detrimental to probably tens of thousands of people. Think about it. You're trying to fire nurses at a time when there's an acute shortage of healthcare workers. Give me a break. So I think that there are ways that you can be strategic to try to stymie the federal overreach. For example, we brought lawsuits on the immigration on the catch and release. And so this is pending in front of the federal district court in the Panhandle. The case is submitted. We think the judge is definitely going to rule for us based on what happened at the trial. So it very well may be that the judge rules on a nationwide basis that Biden's catch and release policy violates the law. And that he can't just be releasing people in our country by the hundreds of thousands. That's going to make some big changes. So you got to figure out ways that you can fight back. But one of the things that we're proud of is Biden does this stimulus money, right? I didn't need any of it. He gives it to me and basically whatever we use it on with projects, it was just counting for the inflation that had happened because by printing the money, you cause inflation, so you spend the money on a project that's now 50% more expensive than it was three years ago. So it didn't really move the ball forward, but I think the more independent we are, the better because what they like to do is they like to use the purse strings and hold that over a state, try to coerce your behavior and say they're going to take away some of the largess if you don't do what they say you should do. Well folks, that is governor Ron DeSantis, the best governed America, make sure you pick up a copy of the courage to be free to out right now. Number one in Amazon and keep it there.

"Because these are mission first folks. And so kind of personal interests are for us to do a good job and to make some history. And they're going to have opportunities after this, but they're not focused on kind of ingratiating themselves with the insiders in Tallahassee. And I just think it's a lesson for folks because personnel is policy. I mean, if you have people that are going to try to undermine you, you can have the best ideas in the world, ultimately you're not going to get them to stick the way you need to, unless you have dedicated people that are carrying out the agenda. I want to rewind a little bit and go back in your career and your life and talk a little bit about your understanding of the other side of the aisle because it is very different from how a lot of people in Republican policies have understood the left. You understand the nature of the threat in a way that I think a lot of Republicans particularly in the so called establishment do not, which leads you to treat the press differently, which I want to get to in a little bit. It seems from your book that a lot of that was being from the Panhandle of Florida, and then going to Yale and Harvard, and experiencing something very different. Yeah, I mean, so I was a baseball player growing up and my little league team went to little league World Series, and done in Florida. We had a great program, and we were one of the best teams in the state. And most of the people on my high school team got played division one college baseball, including me. Well, you know, I was getting recruited because I had good grades and test scores. So I was getting recruited by Princeton and Yale and all these places. I had never been to New England in my life. I had not been very many places in my life to be honest. And so I didn't know what I was getting into. I didn't know colleges were liberal. I didn't even really have a sense of that. I was really green in terms of that. And I was there, and I was going to work hard. I thought it would advance myself. And I thought, obviously, to be able to play to play baseball, when I got to Yale, I was wearing what we would wear on the West Coast of Florida. Jean shorts, T-shirt, and flip flops are the first day of school there. That was not exactly the way the kids from Andover and Exeter dressed. And it was a big culture shock for me. And you know, I was really one of the most blue collar kids there. And so that was one thing. But then when you actually got into the classroom, it was really the first time I saw kind of unadulterated leftism. Because were we I didn't know if you were Republican Democrat. I mean, people trust in God love your country, kind of the basic stuff. That was pretty universal in terms of how things were, right? And Yale's motto, one of the mottos is for God for country for Yale. And they have a big, beautiful memorial of the World War I veterans who left Yale to go serve in the war and died. And so you did see some vestiges of patriotism. But man, when you got into that classroom, attacking religion, attacking people that believe attacking God, anti American. I mean, we're basically being told that the Soviet Union was the victim in the Cold War and that we started it and it was all our fault and all these things. And I'm just like, you know, this is not for me. This is not true. And these people should have appreciation for this country. And the people that had the least appreciation were the most privileged kids there that would always be buying into this nonsense. So I think that that really helped me chart a course where I started developing my own philosophical views about government, politics, about the country. By the time I went to Harvard Law School, I was definitely set at that point. There was nothing they were going to do to be able to change me. But you know, a lot of parents worry about you work to have values for your kids. They go to university and then can the university undo all that. And I think for me, it was really the opposite. I rebuild against it. Incidentally, I ended up going to the navy doing all this stuff. So I'm running for Congress in 2012. And I'm in a 7 way primary. Everyone saying they're the most conservative thing since sliced bread, all this other stuff. Yeah. So the voters are like, well, how do we know you're going to go up there and actually stand by your convictions and do what you said you would do? And really, you had no way to prove that. I mean, I had a good background and that people like that I was a veteran and everything. But what I would tell the primary voters, I was like, listen, I'm one of the few people in this country that went through both Yale and Harvard and came out more conservative than when he went in. And that's not

It seems an unlikely conflict between a surreal theme park, populated by absurd and grotesque characters who caper and romp to amuse and delight and Disney World. Thanks for coming out. We're here all week. Florida governor Ron DeSantis has signed into Florida law a bill which will give Florida's government further control over Disney's Florida theme parks via a 5 member board appointed by the governor. You may not be shocked to learn that the inaugural board will be entirely composed of desantis donors and or allies. Would not be surprised at all. However, the reasonable listener may find themselves wondering how a major corporate entity was operating outside the governance of the state in the first place. We, much like an unemployable act as sweating inside an enormous mouse costume, are here to help. For more than half a century, the Walt Disney World territory in Florida's reedy creek improvement district has been a self governing entity. Holding 111 km² of territory, it's nearly twice the size of San Marino and not much smaller than Liechtenstein, both of which get a seat at the United Nations. Walt Disney World territory controls its own utilities, roads, rivers, and Waste Management and runs its own emergency services. It is exempt from some building codes technically if Disney felt like it, it could have built its own goofy themed nuclear plant. Or a Donald duck international airport. Disney's special arrangement with Florida began in 1967. Disney had picked its moment to pitch a monument to libertarian capitalism, Florida, which like much of the south had taken a while to forgive the Republican Party for Abraham Lincoln, had elected its first GOP governor since reconstruction. Governor Claude Kirk was happy enough for Disney to do what it pleased on a stretch of unpromising swamp on the outskirts of Orlando, reasoning that they might build an immense boon to Florida's economy or be taken by alligators in the attempt, but either way, it wouldn't bankrupt orange and oscillate counties and Disney

And Ron DeSantis has found a way to basically use the word woke in place of black, so when he says woke policies, he means policies that benefit black people. So his office literally fought to keep important parts of black history being taught in the AP African American studies course. He is banning books that are basic black history books.

"I'm slow to slow to say what I'm about to say because you want to be sure. And it's nothing I can say can damage Ron DeSantis. In fact, anytime I critique Ron DeSantis, his supporters will love it. They are in a position where everything that he does. That not just irritates, but angers or hurts. Black people, civil rights activists and organizers, people on the far left, anything he does to hurt those groups of people, LGBTQ folk, anything Ron DeSantis does to offend those groups. To truly hurt them, his base loves it. And so I can come on here and say, with a clear conscious that I've gotten to the point where I truly believe Ron DeSantis is a white supremacist. He has white supremacist policies and white supremacist policies come from your mind. They come from your heart. They don't emerge out of nowhere. My wife, my lovely wife, who I've been with since 1996. I've been with her for a long time. Since we were teenage kids in high school, my wife was the DEI director of a wonderful organization in New York. And DEI, if you're not familiar with it, it used to people used to have directors of diversity. Corporations rather charities, organizations, businesses would have diversity directors and that has now changed to DEI diversity, equity, and inclusion, some places even call it diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. And it's a very, very important position. Because organizations need to answer sometimes very tough questions about how are we handling the diversity in our office? How are we handling the diversity in our corporation? There is nothing even left wing about it. It's good for business. How are we making sure that there is equality and equity among the diverse groups of people here? That is to say, just as an illustration director or office in a corporation may do, they may say, here we see the path that a white man has all the way to the position of CEO. Does a black woman have that same path or a comparable path to becoming CEO in this corporation? That's a great question to ask. Do white men or you could flip it? Does a black woman have a straight shot to CEO in this corporation? And a white man have no chance. Well, we know that that doesn't exist at all. Because the overwhelming majority of CEOs of Fortune 500 companies in particular are white men. And so people are asking tough questions that white men are clearly offended by. How do we make sure the I stands for inclusion? How do we make sure that everybody is included? That everybody's culture, history, background, identity, how do we make sure that we are running an office, a corporation, an organization, whatever it may be, where everyone's diversity is considered. How do we make sure when, for instance, I'm being very basic here. These are the things that a DEI director does. How do we make sure that when we have a party, we don't have it on a Jewish religious holiday? Well, when you're considering the diversity of your staff, you will do that. Do we have places for our Muslim employees to pray? That's what a DEI director will do. Because Muslims pray 5 times a day facing toward Mecca, do we have a place for them to pray? Some corporations not only have a place for them to pray, but have literally created guides to help their Muslim employees know which direction to face toward Mecca. This is smart business. In our corporation, are we considering young mothers who may be breastfeeding? And do we have a place for a young mother in our corporation or organization or office, do we have a place other than the toilet for a young mother to either breastfeed a baby or pump her breast milk? Is there a private room that she can go to? These are the questions that corporations must ask and to do that, they've opened DEI offices. And yesterday, Ron DeSantis said he is defunding every DEI office. They don't mind defunding. Their game to defund what they don't prioritize. He literally used that word on purpose to say, he is defunding every DEI office at every publicly funded State College and university. It's a problem. Listen, we have a quick word from one of our sponsors and I'll be right back. Let's continue this conversation. It is increasingly clear to me that the path to winning the Republican nomination for president. Is white supremacy. The more offensive and degrading and problematic, a Republican candidate can be toward people of color toward particularly black people in anything that benefits black people, anything that benefits immigrants, anything that benefits someone other than straight heterosexual white men in particular, if you can do anything to offend everybody else, that drastically increases your chance of winning the Republican nomination. Donald Trump proved that first, in 2016, where he literally said he wanted to ban every Muslim. He said this from entering the country, he wanted to have a literal Muslim ban. He said this where he called Mexican immigrants, thieves, criminals, and rapists on the day he announced he was running for

But I think I've really changed that to where, yes, just because you're a corporation and you're quote private, you know, if you're going to try to be exercising public power, we're going to take that very seriously and we're going to fight back, particularly when it's injurious to education in our children. And so the Disney thing was a situation where, yes, they were getting involved in trying to tank a bill that was very important to a lot of parents. Yes, they were advocating things and Burbank about their programming and sexualizing their programming, which as a parent I found very, very problematic, but they're doing that while getting subsidies from the state of Florida. They had their own government given to them in the 1960s. And so they were exempt from laws, had big tax breaks, were able to do all kinds of things that no other individual or company can do in Florida. So we had to make the decision, okay, how can they do that and have all that and then turn around and use the subsidies to advocate against us. So we nixed that. They no longer have self governing status and there's a new sheriff in town in the state of Florida. God bless you for that. Everybody check out governor desantis new book. The courage to be free, Florida's blueprint for America's revival, the facts speak for themselves, Florida was a narrowly Republican state and it is now overwhelmingly conservative across the board thanks to the leadership of governor Ron DeSantis. Hey everybody, Charlie Kirk here, run roe versus wade fell as the law of the land last year, all it did was increase what pro abortion states are doing to entice and mislead women to abort their children. States are now advertising to travel just to get an abortion. It's become abortion trafficking. So the need to provide the truth is girls and women are contemplating what to do about their pregnancy is greater now than ever before. Ultrasounds say babies because ultrasounds give the truth at a time. Everyone else is saying it's not just a baby, it's just a clump of cells. When you introduce a girl to her baby by providing an ultrasound, you are giving her the truth at the most important time of her life, and more than 85% of the time, that she will choose life. You don't have to make a lot of noise to make a big difference for life. Just give an ultrasound a pre born dot org to be a hero for life that is pre born dot org, a $140 gives 5 mothers a free ultrasound and saves babies, $200 can save ten babies. Go to pre born dot.

"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.

"Author podcast host. He doesn't all and very stylish bulletin is enhanced by the way. I must say i wanted to talk a little bit about where you think you know. We're we're we need to go from here. 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..
