Florida's 'Vile' New License Plate Leads
to Manufactured 'Controversy' and Tons
of Hypocrisy

Original Article

Before we get to the subject at hand, the second half of the headline says everything you need to know about the Democrat Party: manufactured controversy and tons of hypocrisy. Toss in Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and pretty much anything to do with the Sunshine State and we’re talking histrionic meltdown. The “controversy” began on July 30 when DeSantis announced Florida’s new Gadsden flag license plate, which features the familiar “Don’t Tread on Me” declaration with a curled rattlesnake on a yellow background. According to the governor’s office, as reported by the NBC New affiliate in Tampa, proceeds from the optional plate will benefit Florida veterans in need.

Project Veritas just released a list of symbols the FBI considers Domestic Terrorism focused and guess what? The Gadsden Flag is on the list! I can’t wait to put on on my cars.

I'm betting that the "optional" license plate will be displayed on about 75% of the vehicles in Florida by 2024.

We frequently fly the Gadsden flag on our front porch and my son in law has those tags on his car - you can get them as vanity plates in Virginia.

Oh I forgot! In addition to the Gadsden Flag plate on my cars, I’ll wear my Rush Limbaugh Betsy Ross Flag shirt. That way I can cash in on two FBI symbols at the same time. I think Governor DeSantis needs to take this to the Supreme Court ASAP as unconstitutional.

A year and a half ago I bought two full size Gadsden flags, gave one to my best friend, and tacked the other on my bedroom wall. Being an amateur herpetologist since early childhood with a particular fascination for rattlesnakes, the Revolutionary War era Gadsden flag is a piece of Americana that I like seeing. I'm a patriotic American, a traditionalist and evangelical Christian who believes what's in the Book. That's as far away from a terrorist as one could ever be, unless up is redefined as down and evil is redefined as virtue.

IMHO...'veterans in need' is an excellent cause. So many of those traditional flag/designs are of historical interest--unless you fancy yourself to be Mad King George III. Ben franklin designed 'join or die'. As for betsy ross, how can she inspire horror in anybody who eschews mad misogyny?

L-dotters, recognize all this leftist Media condemnation and hatred (for anything that they do not support) for what it is.... a campaign of BULLYING. Take the 'transgender' issue. Anyone who does not SAY that they agree and support the so-called 'trans' movement is labelled a 'Transphobe', a 'Homophobe', a Bigot, etc., etc., etc..... and ALL of the Leftist media is on this bandwagon. They picked a sexual topic as 'sex sells'. But what they are really doing is trying to BULLY people into SAYING that they believe something that they KNOW is FALSE. If they can bully people into SAYING that a Male can be a Female, and a Female can be a Male, then they can bully people into ANYTHING. It seems to me that a long time ago in a place a long way away, the Government and the Media joined together and convinced most of the people in their country that a certain group of people that also lived in that country and surrounding countries were evil, based on their ethnicity and religion, and that those people should be eliminated. It took several years and the combined effort of most of the people of the world -including my Dad- to straighten that matter out and put it right. Oh, and long time ago was about 80 years ago, and a long way away was several thousand miles away, over in the middle of Europe, somewhere between France and Poland. Let us stand up, resist, and do our best to Stop the Bullying before it gets out of hand....again!

Increasing The IRS Annual Budget By Seven
Times Doesn’t Add Up

Posted by Imright 8/6/2022 5:35:51 AM Post Reply
The talk in the media is about a “beefed-up” IRS. The IRS budget for FY 2022 totals nearly $14 billion ($11.9 billion in appropriated funds) with a full-time equivalent (FTE) staff ceiling of 79,808 (75,533 from appropriated funding.) Now, the Democrat-controlled Congress, at the behest of the Biden Administration, wants to take that up an additional almost $80 billion, with 1% going to Department of the Treasury offices other than the IRS. That adds up to nearly $93 billion, seven times this year’s budget. SEVEN TIMES.
The Gloves Come Off in Pennsylvania as
Oz Finally Blasts Fetterman

Since Dr. Mehmat Oz won the GOP nomination in Pennsylvania to run for the state’s open senate seat, he’s been running one of the most tepid campaigns I’ve ever seen. His opponent, Democrat John Fetterman, suffered a stroke last May after admittedly ignoring his doctor for years and hasn’t been seen on the campaign trail since. Despite those obvious issues surrounding Fetterman’s health, Oz has attempted to take the high road. Predictably, Fetterman hasn’t returned the favor and has been viciously attacking Oz as being from New Jersey on social media. In fact, the Democrat’s entire campaign has been to make that charge over and over.

Republican border-state governors are sending busloads of illegal entrants — released in their states by the Department of Homeland Security — to DC and New York City, prompting recriminations and pleas for federal cash from the Democratic mayors of those erstwhile immigrant-friendly cities. Those mayors, seemingly unwittingly, are making the governors’ point — that the administration has created a disaster at the US-Mexico line, requiring an immediate policy shift to protect lives and state and local finances. It started in April. Fed up with federal releases of large numbers of migrants into overwhelmed small towns in his state (including Uvalde), Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) began

The January 6 Committee has promised since the start of their hearings that they would produce the evidence to nail President Donald Trump. But as anyone can tell you, all they’ve produced is bad television that people have been avoiding like the plague because they know it’s a biased witch hunt. But after nine hearings, they have not produced evidence to support criminal charges, according to George Washington law school professor Jonathan Turley. As he notes, even former prosecutor (and Senator) Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) thought it would be “very tough” to get an indictment legally. Instead, what we’ve gotten is a witch hunt “show trial” with a controlled Democratic effort,

Indiana's legislature became the first in the nation on Friday to pass new legislation restricting access to abortions since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. Other states have already banned abortion, thanks to pre-existing 'trigger laws' that went into effect when Roe was repealed, but Indiana is the first to usher in a new law. The measure now goes to Republican Governor Eric Holcomb, who has not indicated whether he will sign it. The ban includes limited exceptions, including in cases of rape and incest, and to protect the life and physical health of the mother.

A cloud of thick smoke hangs over the occupied city of Kherson in Ukraine. Its very stench is evidence of Russian war crimes, on a scale almost too sickening to contemplate. The smoke comes from mobile incinerators that are running night and day. Vladimir Putin's paranoid soldiers are burning the corpses of Ukrainian citizens tortured and murdered on suspicion of helping the resistance. And they are dispatching the bodies of their own comrades too — hundreds of them. The Russians are killed by the constant pounding of Ukrainian shells from artillery placements surrounding the city and by highly organised, secret units of freedom fighters.

When WNBA star Brittney Griner was convicted on drug charges Thursday, she was not merely sentenced to nine years in a normal jail or prison. She was given time in a Russian penal colony, which is quite different than a normal correctional facility. Russia's penal colonies are descendants of the notorious Soviet-era gulags where prisoners have been subjected to harsh treatment and poor conditions. Prisoners in the system have been beaten by other inmates, endured torture and forced to watch Russian propaganda for hours every day in what's known as "awareness raising." Following several days of Griner's trial, which stemmed

In February, American basketball star Brittney Griner was arrested at a Moscow airport after attempting to bring cannabis oil into the country, which is illegal according to Russian law. In the almost six months since being apprehended, Griner has lingered in a less-than-comfortable prison cell. On Thursday, the legal proceedings of the case came to a close when a Russian court delivered a guilty verdict, followed by a harsh sentence of nine years behind bars. None of Thursday’s developments should have come as a surprise to anyone. As we’ve noted before, 99% of all Russian prosecutions end with a guilty verdict, and with a maximum available sentence of ten years,
