Ron DeSantis Shows Why He's a Boss

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 1/13/2021 3:53:52 AM

I’ll give the requisite warning that there will be at least some level of Ron DeSantis fanboying contained in this article. With that out of the way, DeSantis once again today showed why he’s cut from a different piece of cloth that most other Republican politicians, especially those that reside within the beltway in D.C. With big tech cracking down on internet speech, specifically conservative viewpoints, it’s far past time for the GOP to fight back in ways they can. While there’s little that can be done at the national level now because Trump and the Republican Senate squandered those opportunities the last four years, there’s plenty that can happen downstream.

We are very proud of our Governor here in Florida! Everyday we see him out and about all over this State. He doesn't just sit in the Governor's Mansion, he actually works! 2024 is a long way off, and a lot can happen, but I agree with this Author that DeSantis will be a Contender for the Job of President when the time comes! He's Fearless, just like Trump!

Until he can find a way to overcome the dim's cheating, it would be a waste for him to run in '24. Let someone else be the sacrificial lamb. Stay here in Florida where you can accomplish something.

I've been saying for weeks now that we need to IGNORE our federal level officials and RE-AIM our focus on the 26 states that we control! And this paragraph sums up a great way to start...remember it was through the STATES that Big Tobacco was brought to it's knees: Every GOP governor in the country should be doing this. There’s absolutely no reason to not use every tool at our disposal to push back against big tech until they cry uncle. If the idea is that these big corporations will change their behavior if you hit them in the pocket book, you have to actually hit in them in a way that hurts them. Conservative accounts pulling out aren’t going to do anything. That’s exactly what social media want. It doesn’t hurt them financially, and it gets their nuances out of their hair. But if states led by Republicans band together and sue, divest, and otherwise throttle big tech’s reach, that may actually get their attention.

While this is great news and I hope that SC Governor McMaster joins in, I have a couple of issues with the author of this article. First, President Trump did NOT squander anything. He spent every minute of four long years fighting like a superhero against insurmountable odds for the benefit of every single American. Not to mention people all over the planet. I resent the hell out of this Bonchie creature even suggesting such a thing. Second, if conservative accounts pulling out of the tech giants aren’t going to do anything, then why has Twitter’s stock gone into a nosedive?

To paraphrase the Irish zealot from "Braveheart," "That's mouy Gov'ner!" Eat your hearts out, Maryland and Michigan and Pennsylvania and Georgia and everywhere else where the GOP controls the statehouse and/or the Governorship and still loses loses loses to the Left and Statists. [Or despite the GOP label clothing ARE the Left and Statists.] Florida still knows how to fight and win.

Bonchie may be on to something, but I'd focus on lawsuits, not divestment. There's dozens of state laws that Big Tech violates routinely, and State Constitutions generally grant the same rights as the US one. A state suit against the separate Big Tech firms brought by the state AG under state law is not easily removed to federal court, and can be just as damaging as a federal one. Then there are the huge state contracts routinely awarded; steer those away from firms suppressing conservative voices. Virtually all textbook vendors kowtow to Texas' book buying preferences. This approach works.

Its interesting that #4 mentioned how Big Tobacco was "brought to it's knees" through state action, because the anti-smoking campaign was really the opening salvo in the commie campaign against individual rights. It was so successful it became the template for the imposition of Cultural Marxism..."First they came for the smokers." There was a time in the mid-20th century that being in public meant you tolerated the personal habits of others, as they tolerated yours. It was the natural way of interacting with other individuals while going about your daily business. Smoking was so popular that people gave a carton of cigarettes for Christmas gifts. The "public health" issue was introduced through PSAs from the American Lung Association in the 1960s. The next action was the public segregation of our population into "smoking" and "non smoking" sections in airplanes and restaurants, followed by talks from concerned friends and relatives that morphed into public harangues from strangers. Due to "shared air" in public places and the "health crisis" posed by cigarettes, smokers were eventually banned from airplanes and restaurants, even their outdoor patios. Taxes were gleefully raised on cigarettes so that a .25 pack of smokes costs $10 today. TK and I get around the taxes for the last 20 years by buying bulk tobacco and empty tubes. We make our own with a handy little machine for $10 a carton. All of our China Virus lockdown restrictions are based upon this long-established belief that individual rights must be curtailed to deal with any public health crisis. Today our individual right to a fair vote and election has been abrogated because the MAGA agenda has been labeled a "public safety" issue. American patriots are being subjected to the same public shaming and disinformation that was so successfully used against smoking. So yeah, this is a long way of saying that using the same tactics against the commies is long overdue. MAGA - Every cigarette I light is a smoke for freedom.

#14 - Everything you said is correct...and if the states can band together as they did with Big Tobacco...they can band together against Big Tech, but this time to restore and protect our first amendment rights. Use the laws already on the books, but PASS NEW LAWS (just as they did with Big Tobacco), enforce those laws and either bring the tech companies to heel or force them to break up in order to comply. The latter sounds good -- but as Mel Gibson's character said in The Patriot (and I'm paraphrasing), "be careful that we're not trading tyranny from a one tyrant across the ocean for 3,000 mini-tyrants here at home." The biggest problem with the tech companies are the people who run them -- they do not fear God because they believe they are tech gods who can control the masses through technological advancement.

Their rush to punish could become their own undoing. In the climate change fiasco of a film ‘’The Day After Tomorrow’’ we are presented with a number of ridiculous premises. One, in particular, came to mind this weekend with the oppressive acts we saw emanating from Silicon Valley. In a later scene a weather system descends on New York, delivering a massive drop in temperature in a matter of seconds, so frigid that it manages to freeze a helicopter in mid-air. Jake Gyllenhaal’s character sees this frosty threat and runs to get back to a safe room where there is a fireplace burning, racing through hallways that become encrusted with ice.

Democrats are out for blood, emboldened by the idiotic alt-right fools who rushed the Capitol last week, and they are seemingly going to play every card they have. Impeachment is already being talked about, perhaps even after Biden’s inauguration, in order to ban Trump from every holding office again. But if that wasn’t dumb enough, Nancy Pelosi is now looking at the 14th Amendment as a way to expel Republican members of the House for supposedly taking part in an “insurrection.”

A strong majority of GOP voters view themselves as Republicans rather than devotees of President Trump's Make America Great Again, or "MAGA," movement, according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen. Among the Republican voters, 74% consider themselves "more of a Republican," while 19% see themselves as "part of MAGA nation." The numbers could reflect the fallout from last week's Capitol riot, which has been broadly characterized as being led by Trump's MAGA devotees, a key part of the president's base, helped him become president in 2016. However, there is no similar, previous polls to compared percentages.

The president of the Pasco Association of Educators (PAE) claims reopening schools for in-person learning is an example of “white supremacy,” and compares listening to concerned parents to following rioters breaking into the U.S. Capitol. He even says concern over student suicide is an example of “white privilege.” Scott Wilson, PAE president, made a series of unhinged, controversial remarks during a Pasco School Board meeting this week. The statements come as the union pushes for total remote learning for elementary schools, even with near-consensus from the medical community that it is safe to reopen schools with mitigation policies in place.
