(RepublicanWire.org) – The WEF-puppet regimes from Sri Lanka, the Netherlands, and Canada are all strangling their citizens with ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) policies.

Sri Lanka’s economy collapsed, while the Netherlands and Canada are on the same path of self-destruction to appease globalist influence.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is taking action to prevent ESG influence in Florida.

“The Florida State Pension System will now be under a “flat ban” against incorporating the globalist ESG platform into its investments,” Fox News reported.

“DeSantis told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” the proponents of ESG – which places what its supporters say are environmentally-necessary regulations – like to “wiggle around” definitions and verbiage to supersede the purely fiduciary responsibilities of fund managers.”

Claus Schwab already revels their policies:

So DeSantis decided to go all in against WEF!

“Things like the World Economic Forum, those policies are dead on arrival in the state of Florida.”

“I want to have the values not of Davos imposed on us but in places like Destin and Dunedin where I grew up” – Ron DeSantis

Florida began its campaign against “woke” corporations ahead of the 2022 Session. This year, the Legislature passed and DeSantis signed what he calls the “Stop WOKE Act” to combat CRT. The law, which is being challenged in courts, prohibits classroom lessons and corporate training from telling people they are inherently racist, sexist or oppressive because of their race, color, sex or national origin.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Gov. Gavin Newsom of California, who in recent years has burnished his profile as a future White House contender, told President Joe Biden on election night that he was not planning a 2024 primary challenge, according to Politico’s Jonathan Martin.

Newsom “told everyone in the White House” ranging “from the chief of staff to the first lady” about his intentions, he revealed to Martin — and was firmly behind the president’s expected reelection bid.

During a trip to Washington, DC this past summer, he wanted Ron Klain and Jill Biden to know that he was “all in” for the president’s plans for 2024.

“I’m all in, count me in,” Newsom told the pair, per his conversation with Martin.

“He not only beat Trump once, I think he can beat him again,” the governor said of Biden. “I hope he runs, I’ll enthusiastically support him.”

Newsom, who was easily reelected to a second term as governor this month after winning his 2018 gubernatorial election in a landslide and also defeating a 2021 recall election attempt, has emerged on the national scene as a staunch promoter of the Democratic Party’s values.

This year, Newsom has encouraged Democrats to go bold in their agenda and more effectively communicate with voters about their policies, notably abortion rights. And he has publicly tussled with Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida, who could potentially launch a 2024 presidential bid against former President Donald Trump.

But the high-profile nature of Newsom’s remarks led many to believe that he was plotting for a 2024 bid of his own, which frustrated him.

“It’s frustrating because I have so much reverence and respect for not only the president but the vice president is an old friend, for all of those interesting things you guys all love to write about, we’ve known each other for 25 years,” said Newsom, who also mentioned Vice President Kamala Harris, a former California state attorney general and US senator.

Newsom then said he wouldn’t run for president in 2024 even if Biden reverses course and opts out of a reelection bid, but the governor didn’t rule out a 2028 campaign, per the interview with Martin.

The California governor, one of the younger generation leaders within the Democratic Party, has not held back in critiquing the party, which is something that many progressives have been clamoring for — with many grassroots activists frustrated that the party’s leaders aren’t more frequently on the offensive against the GOP.

Newsom declared California “a true freedom state” while speaking with reporters, touting the Golden State compared to states that have passed a raft of abortion restrictions after Roe v. Wade was overturned by the Supreme Court this past summer.

In the midterm elections, California voters overwhelmingly approved a ballot measure that amended the state constitution to guarantee reproductive freedom.

(RepublicanWire.org) – President Joe Biden has had a tough relationship with reporters since he became president and that has continued.

This weekend during his vacation in Nantucket for the Thanksgiving holiday he snapped at reporters when he was asked if he would take questions and he said “No!” Mediaite reported.

On Friday, the president spent time walking around Nantucket with First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, First Son Hunter Biden, First Grandson Beau Biden, and First Daughter Ashley Biden. The Bidens shopped and had a late lunch, then attended a tree-lighting ceremony — all while being trialed by members of the White House press.

At one point, Biden was asked if he’d come answer questions, and he drew laughs by responding with an immediate “No!”

But later in the day, he weighed in on the USA – England match, which ended in a scoreless draw.

“I’d rather it be one nothing but it’s good. England is tough,” the president said.

For many Americans, the rising inflation has made this Thanksgiving financially tough, to the effect of many people skipping the holiday. A survey by Personal Capital showed that many respondents believed they would not have enough cash for the holiday, while others said they would skip it, the report said.

In fact, it showed that a quarter of respondents said they would be skipping the holiday.

The survey showed that 57 percent of hosts planned to have fewer guests, 53 percent planned to make fewer dishes, 52 percent planned on asking guests to bring dishes, and 42 percent planned on asking people to pitch in financially.

Whether hosts plan to foot the bill or ask their guests to pitch in, most will need at least a rough budget to get all that food on the table. How much are Americans planning to spend this year, and have their budgets changed since 2021? 

Despite inflation and job uncertainty, 52% of Americans said they plan on spending the same amount of money on this year’s Thanksgiving as they did last year. Only 33% expected to spend less this year, and 15% expected to spend more. Most Americans placed their Thanksgiving budget within $101-$200. Gen Xers were most likely to keep a tight budget of $100 or less (40%), and baby boomers were most likely to break the bank with a budget of $201 or more (20%).

But as many Americans are struggling, President Joe Biden and his family are spending the holiday at the $20 million home of billionaire David Rubenstein, a private equity tycoon in Nantucket, Massachusetts, the New York Post reported.

Joe Biden, his wife Jill, and other family members were set to fly to the upscale Massachusetts island on Air Force One later Tuesday and remain there until Sunday, the White House confirmed over the weekend. While there, the Bidens plan to stay at Rubenstein’s sprawling, $20 million waterfront home, the Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror reported. Biden indicated earlier this month that the upcoming holiday season would be a prime opportunity for him to discuss running for re-election in 2024.

“My intention is that I run again,” he said. “But I’m a great respecter of fate. And this is, ultimately, a family decision.  I think everybody wants me to run, but … we’re going to have discussions about it. Well, I — my guess is — I hope Jill and I get a little time to actually sneak away for a week … between Christmas and Thanksgiving. And my guess is it would be early next year we make that judgment.”

(RepublicanWire.org) – Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said that Republicans should focus on President Biden, not his son Hunter Biden, saying the president “is the Godfather.”

On the most recent episode of his podcast, “Verdict with Ted Cruz,” the Texas Republican said his party needs to turn its attention to President Biden in their investigations, and not focus on his embattled son.

“The focus needs to be on Joe Biden, this is not about Hunter Biden, any more than if you’re going after the mafia and you catch some low-level enforcer, or you’re going after a drug cartel and you catch some mule who swallowed balloons full of heroin,” Cruz said.

“It’s not about the poor schlub who got caught. It’s about the boss,” the senator continued.

“It’s about the big guy. It’s about the Godfather, Joe Biden is the Godfather. He is the one who ultimately is profiting on this corruption,” Cruz said. “He is the one who is abusing official authority to further the criminal activity of his family members. And that’s why this is an issue of public corruption.”

Cruz said the Department of Justice under Biden “desperately” wants “to keep this on,” pointing to the DOJ’s handling of Hunter’s “drug problem.”

“You know what, we wouldn’t be talking about it if it was just one deeply troubled soul,” Cruz continued. “The reason we should talk about it, and the reason why the corporate media and the Democrats desperately don’t want to talk about it, is there is now growing evidence of corruption from Joe Biden himself, when he was vice president of the United States.

“And now when he’s president of the United States, personally enriching himself enriching his family by selling official favors to enemies, hostile foreign governments — that is an issue of highest importance,” he asserted.

Cruz’s comments come as Republicans are geared up to take control of the House in January, with the GOP leadership promising to launch several investigations, including into the Bidens.

The White House is already playing defense against the GOP investigations, with the administration claiming Republicans were pushing “long-debunked conspiracy theories” in their allegations of Biden having a hand in his son’s overseas business dealings.

“Instead of working with President Biden to address issues important to the American people, like lower costs, congressional Republicans’ top priority is to go after President Biden with politically motivated attacks chock full of long-debunked conspiracy theories,” Ian Sams, spokesperson for the White House Counsel’s office, said last week. 

“President Biden is not going to let these political attacks distract him from focusing on Americans’ priorities, and we hope congressional Republicans will join us in tackling them instead of wasting time and resources on political revenge,” Sams added.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Fox News host Tucker Carlson exposed a depraved ad campaign for fashion house Balenciaga that appears to use toddlers cuddling teddy bears in bondage outfits while the photoshoot also shows a document that referred to a US Supreme Court case that struck down a law against child porn.

“Consider the latest ad for the clothing brand, Balenciaga. This was just uploaded on Instagram. As you can see, the photo shoot they’re using to sell their products features a young girl holding a teddy bear in a bondage outfit,” Carlson noted.

“Then in case you missed the point, the photo shoot also contains this image. It shows several documents. Most of them aren’t visible, but what you can see when you zoom in, and of course, the point is that you see it, is a reference to a US Supreme Court case called Ashcroft vs. Free Speech Coalition. That case struck down a law against kiddie porn. What is this? Well, it is what it appears to be. It’s an endorsement of kiddie porn, of child pornography. What else could it be? We wanted to know. We reached out today to Balenciaga to get their explanation and they didn’t respond,” he recounted.

Carlson then asked where the outrage was over the creepiness of the ad. Evidently, it is pretty much nowhere to be found.

In one ad, a red-haired little girl wears a T-shirt from the brand while holding the strap connected to a white bear, which wears a vest with a padlocked choker around its neck. In another one, a brunette child sported a blue outfit while clutching a purple plush animal, which was wearing what looked like BDSM attire.

Carlson was enraged over the blatant sexualizing of the children.

“So, we’re going to have to take that on face value and ask, where’s the moral outrage? We have an entire industry in this country comprised of moral outrage merchants,” he railed.

“If you’ve ever been on Twitter, you know what we mean. Truly, an entire sector of our economy is devoted to attacking people for falling short of the mark, and here is a high-end retailer promoting kiddie porn in an ad on Instagram, and nobody notices,” Carlson angrily pointed out.

He then demanded to know why the media and social media allowed the ad to run when it ostensibly endorses kiddie porn.

“There’s no boycott. There’s no front-page New York Times editorial against it and of course, Instagram, let the advertisement run endorsing kiddie porn and by the way, if you have an alternate explanation for what this was, let us know. A child with a teddy bear in a bondage outfit, and a Supreme Court decision striking down a kiddie porn law displayed on the table. What is that? Are we jumping to conclusions? Don’t think so. It is what it appears to be,” he concluded.

“It’s right in your face and no one’s saying anything. Again, Instagram had no problem with this. Until Elon Musk took over Twitter, Twitter allowed hashtags that explicitly linked to child pornography. Nobody said anything because crimes against children are no big deal. It’s thought crimes that are the real crimes,” he charged.

He closed out by making the accusation that child abusers get a pass but not conservatives.

“If you said something about it… if you were Libs of TikTok and said, ‘Wait a second, this seems to be abetting child molestation,’ which of course, that’s what it’s doing, you’re instantly booted off Twitter. But the links to kiddie porn? They’re still there. Well, now they’ve been deleted, thank God. That’s one improvement,” the Fox News host stated.

It should be noted that this company has been associated with the likes of Kim Kardashian and previously made headlines for its daring fashion choices, according to the New York Post. It is a big supporter of gay rights as well. The current ad however seems to have crossed a line… at least for conservatives.

Fox News reports: “The photographer for the ad campaign, Gabriele Galimberti, said the images were part of a project series called ‘Toy Stories,’ according to his Instagram page. The images, which now appear to be mostly scrubbed from the global brand’s website, sparked outrage from conservative activists.”

Penny Nance, who is the CEO of Concerned Women for America, a conservative women’s rights group, called the images “exploitive propaganda.”

“This is not about them being provocative and getting attention,” Nance told Fox News Digital. “The entire campaign sexualizes children, period. It is child exploitation, period. And it feeds and normalizes a culture that is dark and depraved. Balenciaga needs to answer for it.”

Kelsey Bolar, who is with the Independent Women’s Forum, agreed.

“Balenciaga has no business introducing ‘bondage,’ a perverse adult sexual practice, to young children. Worse, the fashion house is using these images to advertise its products, essentially profiting from the sexualization of children. The desire to sexualize innocent children is a disturbing trend that’s emerged in today’s culture, and this is a twisted, disturbing example,” she said.

“They are trying to chum up attention by incorporating a Supreme Court child porn pandering case as window dressing. It’s connecting child porn with their product,” Benjamin Bull, who is the general counsel for the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, asserted. “It’s an exploitative attention-getting device.”

Balenciaga was torched on Twitter over the disgusting ads:

(RepublicanWire.org) – U.S. House Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) demanded an apology from 2016 Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in a new social media post.

Greene said, “And your truth had to be banned, because your truth was the wrong truth, and this is how this all started. I’ll never forget when Hillary Clinton called everyone supporting Trump ‘deplorables.’

“Wasn’t that a nasty thing for her to do, to declare half of the country basically like we’re kind of subclass? That’s where all this started and how we got treated and it should have never happened that way.

“She should apologize. Hillary Clinton owes America an apology.”

Speaking at a September 2016 fundraiser in New York City, Clinton said, “You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables.”

Greene had her personal Twitter account reinstated yesterday and many on the left were furious.

Greene said, “I’m the only Member of Congress the unelected big tech oligarchs permanently banned. On January 2, 2022, they violated my freedom of speech and ability to campaign & fundraise crying ‘covid misinformation.’”

“My account is back.

“Go follow @mtgreenee for MTG unfiltered ;)”

U.S. House Rep Matt Gaetz (R-FL) said before the ban was lifted:

“The censorship of Marjorie Taylor Greene is wrong as wrong can be.”

Musk said, “Hope all judgy hall monitors stay on other platforms – please, I’m begging u.”

(RepublicanWire.org) – Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot was swiftly ridiculed for decrying the mass shooting in Colorado, while her own city is plagued with rampant gang violence and fatal shootings. 

The Democratic mayor responded to the deadly shooting at a gay nightclub in Colorado, where five people were killed and dozens were injured, by saying that it made her “sick.”

“I’m sick of this s—. How many people need to be murdered? How many lives torn apart? Until it actually stops? We don’t have to live like this. And we don’t have to die like this,” she wrote on Twitter on Sunday.

This past weekend at least 20 people were shot and three were killed in gang-related shootings in the Windy City, according to local news outlet ABC7.

Lightfoot’s tweet was quickly ratioed, with Twitter users calling on the mayor to address her own city’s problems with violence.

Conservative radio host Dan O’Donnell tweeted, “I’m not sure, but it seems like you might be in a position to do something about murders in Chicago.

Others mocked the mayor’s seemingly tone-deaf tweet.

Conservative pundit and talk show host Dave Rubin called her a clown.

Journalist Siraj Hashmi reminded the mayor, “My sister in Islam, you’re literally the mayor of Chicago.”

Former ESPN sportscaster Jeannine Edwards also wondered where the Democrat’s outrage was for the murders in her own city.

“Where is your outrage at the dozens of murders in our city every week? Gangs and criminals are running the place…not you,” Edwards tweeted.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Tesla CEO Elon Musk appeared to poke fun at CBS Sunday afternoon for saying it was coming back to Twitter after temporarily suspending its usage on the platform over security concerns. 

“After pausing for much of the weekend to assess the security concerns, CBS News and Stations is resuming its activity on Twitter as we continue to monitor the situation,” the CBS News Public Relations team wrote.

In his characteristically brief manner, Musk replied to the post with a blushing “face with hand over mouth” emoji, which usually suggests coy laughter or embarrassment. 

The network confirmed the move during Friday’s episode of “CBS Evening News with Norah O’Donnell.” During a segment titled “Twitter Turmoil,” featured CBS News national correspondent Jonathan Vigliotti reporting on the mass resignations of employees offended by Musk’s “ultimatum” to employees last week, asking them to commit to an “extremely hardcore” workload or leave the company. 

CBS News’ story featured a quote from a disgruntled former engineer who was laid off, who claimed that the culture of Twitter under Musk was “definitely a culture of fear and uncertainty, of anxiety.” In the middle of the segment, Vigliotti reported the outlet’s decision to pause its usage of Twitter. 

That announcement came after CBS News national correspondent Jonathan Vigliotti announced Friday evening during a report on the social media giant, “In light of the uncertainty around Twitter and out of an abundance of caution, CBS News is pausing its activity on the social media site as it continues to monitor the platform.”

Musk later followed up with a meme, writing, “Our love will never die.”

CBS’s decided to resume its Twitter use on Sunday, less than 48 hours after announcing it would pause its activity on the platform. 

(RepublicanWire.org) – Financier John Bryan said that Epstein, who died in 2019 in prison while awaiting trial after trafficking hundreds of young girls into sex work, made his vast wealth through extorting rich people.

John Bryan believes paedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s ultimate aim was to extort money out of the Queen by blackmailing Prince Andrew.

He claims Epstein, who lured hundreds of vulnerable young girls into his sex trafficking ring over a 30-year period, would befriend rich and powerful men, then blackmail them into paying him money to remain silent. ‘It was just an extortion plot,’ he claimed.

Mr Bryan, who has been involved in the world of finance his whole life and knows some of the men involved, said: “People always ask how Epstein made his money. He was supposed to be this tax wizard. But it was all a con.”

“He blackmailed rich men and then made them pay to avoid scandal,” Bryan said. “He made hundreds of millions of dollars this way.”

“Epstein tried to lure Andrew into his web, but I believe his ultimate mark was the Queen.”

Prince Andrew’s relationship with Epstein has been under scrutiny for years, but especially since a bombshell 2019 interview with Emily Maitlis in which he tried to defend the friendship.

Bryan added, “I believe Andrew is innocent. If he genuinely was involved in ‘orgies’ as has been alleged, then Epstein would have used that to try and bribe the Queen into paying out millions to protect her family.”

Epstein was also connected with the Duke of York through their friendship with Maxwell. Andrew withdrew from public royal life after a civil sex assault case was brought against him by Virginia Giuffre, who accused him of having sex with her when she was a teenager at multiple locations including Epstein’s New York home.

The duke has denied the accusations, and the case ended in a reported eight-figure settlement.

(RepublicanWire.org) – President Biden’s regular trips to his home state of Delaware have cost taxpayers at least $11 million since the start of his presidency.

Biden has made 56 trips to Delaware, spanning all or part of 177 days, according to data from former CBS correspondent Mark Knoller in October. Biden now has 57 trips to Delaware and 185 days.

The trips require taxpayer dollars to fund costs associated with the use of either Air Force One or Marine One, as well as security costs for the Secret Service. The president spends time in Delaware at his homes in Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach.

Public documents from the Department of Defense comptroller show that the Marine One helicopters used by the president cost between $17,065 and $20,206 per hour.

The helicopter trip between the White House and locations in Delaware takes roughly an hour, according to the president’s schedule.

Air Force One’s operational costs are $177,843 per hour, and the trip to Delaware takes roughly 30 minutes, according to the president’s schedule.

This puts the total operational costs for the trips, including each method of transportation, at about $4 million.

Documents obtained by the New York Post last year showed a Secret Service cost of $1.96 million on the president’s first 16 trips to Delaware.

A per-trip cost from these data applied to the president’s now 57 trips leaves an approximate $7 million tab for taxpayers.

The $11 million receipt for Biden’s Delaware trips is probably a significant underestimate since it does not tally many other miscellaneous costs.

These include spending for additional helicopters that travel along with him, travel to or from military airports before or after an Air Force One flight, and accommodations for staff who accompany him.

The president has other, quite comfortable options for the weekend. The White House itself is one of the nation’s most beautiful mansions. Additionally, the president can also avail himself of the country retreat at Camp David, which is only a half-hour chopper ride away. He has been there 19 times as president, far less often than he goes to Delaware.

But as president, Biden’s predilection for spending as much time in Delaware as possible is costing taxpayers well more than $200,000 roundtrip.
