The Establishment strikes again…

Royal, last session I proposed a bill that would rename Florida’s longest road, Highway 27, the Donald J. Trump Highway.

(The red line is Highway 27 – Florida’s longest road. I’ve proposed renaming the highway after President Trump to honor his legacy!)

Grassroots support for the bill EXPLODED! Over 25,000 people signed my petition and began demanding we rename the highway to honor one of our country’s greatest presidents.

What did so-called, “Republican Leadership” do with the bill?

These RINO’s decided to throw Trump supporters under the bus and killed the bill.

Even worse, they refused to even hear the bill in committee!

Make no mistake: The Establishment is attempting to erase President Trump’s name from the history books and destroy his legacy. 

I will NOT allow this to happen.

You and I must take legislative action to fight back. I am re-filing the bill in the Florida statehouse and will not back down.

Please show your support for renaming Highway 27 to the Donald J. Trump Highway by adding your name to my petition! Sign by clicking here >>>

Oklahoma recently passed a bill to rename one of their longest roads after President Trump… Florida needs to step up and be a leader on this issue.

The goal is to create a highway named after President Trump that stretches from coast to coast.

We can win this fight, Royal.

Losers like Liz Cheney PROVE when conservatives and Trump supporters band together we can defeat the Establishment.

Please show your support by adding your name to the Donald J. Trump Highway petition!

 

Add My Name – Support The Donald J. Trump Highway!

 

Thank you,

Dangerous’ New Wave of Censorship Culminating in the US: Dershowitz

BY ISABEL VAN BRUGEN AND JOSHUA PHILIPP  May 26, 2021

The removal of Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier from the U.S. Space Force this month after he publicly stated his opposition to Marxism and critical race theory is part of a broader, more dangerous new wave of censorship that is culminating in the United States, says constitutional expert Alan Dershowitz.

In an interview with Epoch TV’s “Crossroads,” Dershowitz, a former Harvard Law School professor, expressed concern over Lohmeier’s dismissal, as well as other incidents such as the removal of former President Donald Trump from Twitter, Facebook, and other Big Tech platforms in January following the Jan. 6 Capitol breach.

The Space Force on May 19 relieved Lohmeier from the 11th Space Warning Squadron over allegations that he was “politically partisan” when he denounced the spread of Marxism in the military during an interview.

In explaining his dismissal, the department said Lohmeier made “public comments” deemed to be “partisan political activity.” Lohmeier in a podcast warned about the spread of Marxist ideology within the military and the detrimental consequences of Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s agenda to push critical race theory.

Critical race theory, which is rooted in Marxism, has been heavily promulgated throughout academia, entertainment, government, schools, and the workplace in recent years, coming to new prominence following the rise of far-left groups such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter. Some employers have included concepts from the doctrine—which some claim teaches that the United States is a fundamentally racist country and that one race is inherently superior to another—in their “racial and cultural sensitivity” training.

Like Marxism, it advocates for the destruction of institutions, such as the Western justice system, free-market economy, and orthodox religions, while demanding that they be replaced with institutions compliant with the theory’s ideology.

The legal scholar and author of the new book, “The Case Against the New Censorship: Protecting Free Speech From Big Tech, Progressives, and Universities,” accused Democrats and Big Tech companies of engaging in censorship.

“We’re in a very, very dangerous situation now where the left, which has enormous influence on American universities, has enormous influence on social media, has enormous influence on certain kinds of politics in the media, are trying to suppress free speech, and they’re succeeding, and we have to fight back,” Dershowitz said.

Big Tech companies such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google are today engaging in “massive censorship” that endangers the freedom of speech itself, Dershowitz said.

“That’s not good for the country, it’s not good for the Constitution, it’s not good for freedom of speech. It’s not good by any standards, and it has to stop. And we the consumers have to demand that Facebook and YouTube and Twitter stop this censorship,” he continued.

Twitter executives have indicated that Trump—who had about 90 million followers on the platform—will remain suspended indefinitely, while Facebook’s “Oversight Board” ruled earlier this month to uphold his ban but set a time limit on it.

The companies have also drawn intense scrutiny for perceived political bias and alleged unbalanced moderation of users’ content. Critics say much of the companies’ moderation in the past year has unfairly targeted conservative speech and speech from individuals deemed to be supporters of Trump.

Meanwhile, groups on the other side of the aisle have been taking issue with how social media companies are operating, claiming that the Silicon Valley companies have failed to adequately address misinformation that is being proliferated online.

“What Donald Trump tweets—I may disagree with every single word he says—but he has the right to say it. And more importantly, people forget the First Amendment has two aspects, one, the right of the speaker—Donald Trump to speak—that’s one part of it,” Dershowitz said.

“But the second part, which is largely ignored, is the right of you and me the public to hear and read and see what he has to say to accept it or reject it in the marketplace of ideas,” he added. “When you ban a speaker, you also ban his viewers and listeners from having access to that speech, and that’s an equally dangerous aspect of violating free speech rights.”

US government has no answer to attack on pipeline

The cyber-attack on the vital oil pipeline has left US military and intelligence service scratching their heads
MAY 13, 2021

 

On May 7 the Colonial Pipeline, which stretches from Texas to New York and is the largest pipeline system for refined oil products in the United States, was hit by a ransomware attack that resulted in the shutdown of most of the 5,500-mile pipeline.

The company is operating some parts of the pipeline manually and has sought the help of private cyber investigators and the US government. Meanwhile, a huge segment of the US’ critical infrastructure is disabled and Washington does not seem to have any answers.

We do not know what the hackers demanded from Colonial Pipeline or even who the hackers are.

Ransomware in its most basic form attacks a cyber network by encrypting everything and demanding ransom before the encryption can be removed. In the case of the Colonial Pipeline, we know that along with encrypting all the computers in the Colonial Pipeline network, the perpetrators also stole a vast amount of company dataRead More

Supreme Court Punted on Protections for Religion in Workplace. Justice Gorsuch Wasn’t Having It.

COMMENTARY BY

Sarah Parshall Perry  / 

Sarah Parshall Perry is a legal fellow in the Edwin Meese III Center for Legal and Judicial Studies at The Heritage Foundation.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday released various opinions and orders, as it does in the flurry of activity in the spring season that precedes the court’s summer recess.

While most orders are released without commentary, among this week’s batch was a denial of a petition for writ of certiorari that included a strongly worded dissent from Justice Neil Gorsuch on why he disagreed with the court’s refusal to hear the case.

The dissent (joined by Justice Samuel Alito) is particularly noteworthy in our current culture, one driven toward more and more anti-religious animosity.

Denials of certiorari are quite common. After all, the Supreme Court grants only about 3% of the thousands of petitions it receives each year.  Read More

The Left Doesn’t Want You to Believe in DeSantis Claus

April 10, 2021

Is the race for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination already over? “60 Minutes” seems to think so. They did a dishonest hatchet job on one governor, leaving all the others jealous that the media doesn’t think enough of them to try and destroy them before they become Joe Biden’s nemesis. That governor is Ron DeSantis of Florida.

“60 Minutes” didn’t attack Greg Abbott of Texas. They didn’t attack Kristi Noem of South Dakota. They didn’t attack Doug Ducey of Arizona, or even Brian Kemp of Georgia. “60 Minutes” admitted which Republican fuels its nightmares by attacking Florida Man Ron DeSantis.

Governor Ron DeSantis is just 42 years old. He may only be 5-feet-9-inches, but Florida’s 46th governor is currently America’s wise giant. He’s the most popular and the most successful governor in the land. DeSantis is the governor who is calling the shots for all the others.  Read More

9 Things You Need to Know About Biden’s ‘Infrastructure’ Spending Plan

David Ditch  / 

Fast on the heels of signing a bloated $1.9 trillion spending package, President Joe Biden has introduced yet another gigantic spending plan. While the administration’s messaging focuses on broadly popular themes such as “jobs” and “infrastructure,” the details of the plan show that it would be a destructive power grab for Washington.

Here are just some of the problems with the new spending proposal:

1. Dishonest advertising: Less than 5% of spending goes to roads and bridges.

The plan relies on the word “infrastructure” to seem moderate and uncontroversial. Yet, of the $2.25 trillion in total spending, between $90 billion and $100 billion (or less than 5%) would go toward traditional road infrastructure projects.  Read More

America’s Top Cyberwarrior Warns of Growing Threats

James Di Pane Travis Sapp 

 

Gen. Paul Nakasone, the commander of the U.S. military’s Cyber Command and the director of the National Security Agency, testified to the Senate Armed Services Committee last Thursday on the current state of Cyber Command and cybersecurity. His testimony provided some alarming news about the threats America faces.

Nakasone spoke of the increasing sophistication of hacks against the United States government and private sector companies from a range of adversaries. One of the best and most recent examples is the hack on SolarWinds, a top tier technology company that develops software for both government and private organizations.

The hack is believed to have been carried out by Russian hackers affiliated with the Russian military intelligence to spy on American companies and the U.S. government.  Read More

2 Men on Terror Watchlist Caught Crossing Southern Border

 

Two men from Yemen were apprehended and found to be on the FBI’s terrorism watchlist after illegally crossing the southern border in January and March, Customs and Border Protection announced Monday.

CBP agents arrested the men near the Calexico Port of Entry in Southern California, according to the agency. Both of the men were encountered illegally entering the U.S. after dusk.

A 26-year-old Yemen national was apprehended at 11:30 p.m. on March 30 after illegally entering the U.S., according to CBP. Officials encountered the man around 2 miles from the Calexico Port of Entry and he was taken to the El Centro Processing Center for immigration and criminal history screening.  Read More

Biden abandons friend in need in Saudi Arabia

Abrupt decision to remove Patriot missiles from Saudi Arabia shows Biden considers Iran the region’s real power

The Biden administration has pulled three Patriot missile batteries out of Saudi Arabia and is ending the permanent stationing of an aircraft carrier in the region.

According to the government, the Patriots and the carrier are needed elsewhere but it has not said where or how urgently. These steps surely expose Saudi Arabia to great danger from the Houthis in Yemen and the Saudis’ principal adversary, Iran.

The Biden administration’s steps coincide with China’s signing a long-term strategic and economic deal with Iran.   Read More

US air defenses fail again in Iraq

Rockets hit US base and airport in Erbil after defense systems failed to activate

FEBRUARY 18, 2021

The attack on the US military base at Erbil – in the Kurdistan region of Iraq – and the nearby Erbil airport illustrates once again that US defenses against rocket attacks are inadequate and, for the most part, don’t work.

As far as can be determined, Erbil was defended by a US Patriot air defense system and a C-RAM rapid fire gun system there to protect the Patriot.

There is no information to suggest that either system was activated when a number of rockets slammed into the base and airport. The US and Iraq say they can account for 14 rockets that hit the airport and base; the terrorist group allegedly responsible says 22 rockets were fired.

Last April the Defense Department confirmed it had deployed two Patriot batteries in Iraq – one at the Ain al-Asad Air Base and the other at the Erbil military base.  Read More
