(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) – The Biden Treasury Department has launched an investigation into DeSantis’s sending a planeload of illegal aliens to Martha’s Vineyard, claiming that he may have used COVID relief funds to do so. Congressional Democrats precipitated the action.

“The agency’s inspector general’s office confirmed to several members of Massachusetts’s Democratic congressional delegation that it planned “to get this work underway as soon as possible” to probe Florida’s spending as part of ongoing audits into how states have used the billions in sent to them as part of the American Rescue Plan, according to a letter provided by Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey’s office,” POLITICO reported Wednesday. “In an Oct. 7 letter to Markey and five House members, Richard K. Delmar, deputy inspector general for the Treasury Department told the lawmakers that the agency would “review the allowability” of Covid-19 aid to states “related to immigration generally, and will specifically confirm whether interest earned on (the) funds was utilized by Florida related to immigration activities, and if so, what conditions and limitations apply to such use.”

Can we say just how much this is an improper political witch hunt? The people that need to be investigated here are the Biden team, for once again abusing their offices to go after a political foe.

First of all, plenty of Democrats used COVID funds for non-COVID projects. While the Democrats’ request to investigate DeSantis dated October 7th got immediate action from the Biden Administration, Rep. James Comer’s (R-KY) and Rep. Virginia Foxx’s (R-NC) request to Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona to get action as to COVID relief funds being used for radical initiatives has gotten no action since September.

“As the Republican leaders on the Committees on Oversight and Reform and Education and Labor, we are continuing Republicans’ investigation into the misuse of COVID-19 relief dollars intended for virus mitigation, the safe reopening of schools, and addressing catastrophic learning loss. On September 14, 2022, Committee Republicans requested documents and communications from your office to understand better how the Department of Education has allowed states to spend COVID-relief funds, specifically the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds. You failed to respond by the September 28, 2022, deadline. Despite your failure to respond, the American people are providing numerous examples of wasteful spending of ESSER funds,” wrote the Republican lawmakers.

Joe Biden has sent illegal aliens all over the country including Westchester, New York, under cover of night on our taxpayer funds, and without notifying the cities that he’s dropping the people in. Even some Democrats blasted him over it.

Rep. Tom Suozzi (D-NY) complained that the Biden administration was withholding information about the flights, which reportedly occurred largely at night and in secret.

“We need information from the administration. Where are they sending these kids? So that the school districts can be prepared for the influx of kids, and then we need to get them money,” Suozzi said in October. “I am just angry and frustrated.”

Yet where’s the effort to stop Biden’s actions by the Democrats or the investigation into his misuse of tax dollars? Where’s the investigation of the Democrats who truly misused the funds?

COVID funds have been used for law enforcement in multiple places, such as Mesa, Arizona, so it’s completely in line with that. Plus, the money DeSantis used came from a fund approved by the state legislature to relocate those who have entered the country illegally. The funds came from $12 million in interest from COVID funds, not the COVID funds themselves.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Gloria Romero is a Latina Democrat from California, and the former Majority Leader of the California State Senate. Romero called out the “smug liberals” in her defense of the Republican Florida governor for sending the migrants to the island in the state of Massachusetts. 

“I am telling you that if the Democratic party thinks that Latinos are outraged by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis sending migrants to Martha’s Vineyard – they are dead wrong!

More than two million undocumented immigrants will be arrested trying to cross into the U.S. in 2022.

And Democrats don’t bat an eye.

But fly 50 migrants to one of the wealthiest places in America, spotted with multi-million dollar mansions, surrounded by the mega-yachts of the rich and famous and Democrats lose their minds?

What a joke!” It was Reported.

Romero points out that liberals want open borders until the border comes to their town. They never worry about the consequences of their policies when the problem is far away in the border towns along the U.S./Mexico border. 

She applauded Governor DeSantis in Florida, Governor Abbott in Texas, and Governor Ducey in Arizona for sending a powerful message. These governors are helping the Democrats do their “fair share” in dealing with our broken immigration system.

While CNN is calling what DeSantis did a stunt, all of America can see how the residents of Martha’s Vineyard reacted to the arrival of 50 illegal immigrants. The Massachusetts governor called in the National Guard to deal with what they considered a “humanitarian crisis.” 

The migrants were taken by bus from St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church on the first part of their journey to Joint Base Cape Cod. The signage on the island may say how welcoming they are, but their actions speak otherwise.

Romera goes on to point out that the “Latino agenda is the American agenda.” She highlights the fact that many of the Latino communities along the southern border are rural and poor but are expected to shoulder the burden of the cost of having thousands of migrants flood their towns.

While critics on the left have compared the Republican strategy to human trafficking and “kidnapping,” migrants involved have consented to travel to “sanctuary cities” that promise more care and resources for them.

Despite “sanctuary cities” scrambling to move these migrants out, these cities haven’t changed their stances on immigration. As they sent the newly arrived migrants away, officials in Martha’s Vineyard claimed that the foreigners had “enriched” the island, in line with their original perspectives.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis makes good on sending Illegal Immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard, something he had suggested doing 9 months ago. Two planes just landed on the island filled with illegal immigrants.

Communications director for DeSantis, Taryn Fenske told Fox News, “Yes, Florida can confirm the two planes with illegal immigrants that arrived in Martha’s Vineyard today were part of the state’s relocation program to transport illegal immigrants to sanctuary destinations.”

“States like Massachusetts, New York, and California will better facilitate the care of these individuals who they have invited into our country by incentivizing illegal immigration through their designation as ‘sanctuary states’ and support for the Biden Administration’s open border policies,” she said.

“As you may know, in this past legislative session the Florida Legislature appropriated $12 million to implement a program to facilitate the transport of illegal immigrants from this state consistent with federal law,” she added.

Last November dozens of flights filled with illegal immigrants landed in Florida sent by the Biden administration. This is what prompted DeSantis to offer to send illegals to Delaware on buses.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott started bussing illegal immigrants to Democrat ran Sanctuary cities such as Washington D.C., Chicago, and New York City. Arizona has also sent buses to Washington.

With $12 million in the Florida budget appropriated to relocate illegal immigrants, we expect to see more of this.

(RepublicanWire.org) – One of the first things that Charlie Crist did when he won the Democratic primary for the governor’s race in Florida was to step in it big time by insulting Floridians who might support Gov. Ron DeSantis. He told them he didn’t want their vote and claimed they had “hate in their heart.” He then dug the hole deeper with his hilarious praise of Joe Biden which isn’t going to go over well in Florida.

But Crist wasn’t finished stepping in it yet. He attacked DeSantis, “I’m not one to use those sort of strong words, unless they’re true… He’s a barbaric, wannabe dictator.” It’s hard to get someone more wrong than Charlie Crist.

One of the things that makes Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis such a perfect candidate is that, unlike Charlie Crist, he has a pitch-perfect natural response. When he was asked what he thought of Crist calling him a dictator, his response was gold, especially the dismissive little smiling head shake movement at the beginning.

“Over the last couple of years, you had people who kept wanting to lock people down, I was one of the few in this country that lifted people up,” DeSantis declared. “We protected people’s freedoms, jobs, businesses. We made sure kids could be in school, and we liberated 22 million Floridians from local mandates and restrictions. We protected them against vax mandates so they could keep working.”

DeSantis noted how the Democrats wanted to lock everyone down, “And I would note, you go back to the summer of 2020, I got a letter from every Democrat member of the U.S. House saying: ‘You need to shut down Florida,’ in July of 2020. If we had done that, this state would be in the toilet right now. We made the right decision by keeping the state open…So I think the people that are dictatorial are the ones that want to lock you down. I think the people that are dictatorial are the ones who wanted to lock kids out of school for a year, which all of them wanted to do here in Florida and I stopped it and made sure the kids could be in school…I think it’s dictatorial to say that someone should lose their job based on their choice about whether to get a COVID shot or not. So that’s just the reality.”

That letter was signed by Charlie Crist, among others. So Crist would have helped to destroy the state — if DeSantis had paid attention to Democrats.

DeSantis finished with the fact that people have been fleeing Democratic states for Florida because of that, “And the reason why we’re setting tourism records, the reason why we’re the number one state for net in-migration is because people understand that we’ve stood for freedom.”

Now that’s a priceless reaction. Unlike Crist, DeSantis is not attacking people or saying he doesn’t want their vote — he’s saying why Florida is the place to be, and why protecting people’s freedoms is the choice that should be made. Some dictator.

Indeed, DeSantis has spoken out against authoritarian regimes. DeSantis had previously said it was insulting to the people of Florida who fled real dictatorial regimes to come to Florida to refer to Florida as a dictatorial regime.

DeSantis also skewered Crist on Tucker Carlson’s show, and said it wasn’t about “hate” in people’s hearts but people’s appreciation that a governor would fight for their freedoms.

But that’s the problem with Democrats like Crist — they falsely toss around the term while not taking a look in the mirror about how they themselves are acting. It’s the Democrats who are taking steps every day down the road toward a leftist dictatorship.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is cracking down on illegal voters in his state as he announced 20 arrests are coming.

The governor promised the 20 arrests of ex-felons is the start of an illegal voter crackdown, Politico reported.

“The investigation was led by the DeSantis-championed Office of Election Crimes and Security, an office created during the 2022 legislative session to focus on election fraud investigations and prosecutions. The first round, announced during a press conference in Broward County, was focused on felons who illegally voted in 2020 by either not properly applying to have their voting rights restored or were ineligible because of the severity of their crimes,” Politico said.

The governor said that some of those who are being arrested for voting illegally were convicted of crimes like rape and murder.

“This is just the first step. There are many more in the pipeline,” he said. “We are not just going to turn a blind eye to this. The days of that happening in Florida are over.”

In a press release the governor, and others in the administration, commented on the actions being taken to prevent illegal voting.

“In 2020, Florida ran an efficient, transparent election that avoided the major problems we saw in other states. At the same time, the election was not perfect, which is why we continue our efforts to ensure the integrity of our elections,” he said. “Our new election crimes office has sprung into action to hold individuals accountable for voter fraud. Today’s actions send a clear signal to those who are thinking about ballot harvesting or fraudulently voting. If you commit an elections crime, you will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

“I am grateful to Governor DeSantis for establishing the Office of Election Crimes and Security, and we are off to a great start at eliminating election fraud in our elections,” Secretary of State and Chief Election Officer Cord Byrd said. “These arrests put those who have no regard for the integrity of our elections on notice and will ensure integrity in the voting process.”

“Today is about our honest, hardworking, and law-abiding Floridians,” FDLE Acting Commissioner Mark Glass said. “In Florida, your vote matters.  To that end, we will do everything in our power to ensure those who cannot legally vote never cast a ballot.”

“I’m glad to be a part of a team that is working hard to secure our elections,” Director of the Office of Election Crimes and Security Peter Antonacci said. “Our team of highly skilled investigators will conduct a thorough investigation, and if any evidence of election crime is found, there will be criminal sanctions.”

But Florida Rising Executive Director Andrea Mercado complained that the governor was taking actions that make it tougher for people to vote, even as he is only taking actions against people who are not legally allowed to vote.

“No one has done more to violate the integrity of Florida’s elections and make it harder for Floridians to be part of our democracy than Ron DeSantis,” she argued. “If we had a real election integrity department, they would be arresting the governor for erasing Black districts and threatening neighbors helping neighbors cast their ballot.”

“What today shows is not that democracy is working in Florida, it’s that the offices that are trying to turn our state into one-man rule will do whatever they can to distract and deflect from how they have reduced Floridians’ ability to vote and have their voice heard,” she said.

Again, it is important to note that none of the actions taken by the governor in any way affect any Florida resident who is legally allowed to vote.

“As elected leaders, it is incumbent on us to ensure free and fair elections and instill confidence in the voting process,” Attorney General Ashley Moody said. “No voting system can stand without the backing and confidence of the people it serves, and thanks to Governor DeSantis, we are reinforcing that trust, and Florida’s elections system will serve as the standard-bearer for the rest of the nation.”

(RepublicanWire.org) – Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis has become a favorite target for the ladies who host the super liberal television program “The View,” slamming him repeatedly for how he handled the coronavirus pandemic, his parental rights in education bill, and for basically any reason they can find.

Well, apparently, they extended him an offer to come on their show and DeSantis flat out rejected it, in very brutal fashion.

DeSantis is a man of values and principles who stands up for what he believes and simply does not allow himself to be intimidated by the radicals on the left. Which is one of many reasons why they hate him.

According to a report from The Daily Wire, Bryan Griffin, the deputy press secretary for DeSantis, stated on Monday that the governor was given an invite to the program.

“Griffin said the show wrote that they ‘would be honored’ to have DeSantis on for an interview. He released the email DeSantis’ team sent back to the show on Tuesday morning declining their offer,” the report said.

“Are the hosts of The View really interested in hearing from Governor DeSantis about all of the important work he is doing on behalf of Floridians to protect their health and livelihoods, to stand up for parents and children, and to defend freedom?” the email stated. “Which of the below statements from the hosts of The View do you recommend our team consider when deciding if the interview will be a genuine pursuit of the truth? Or worth the time?”

The email then went on to list several different comments from the show’s co-hosts that reveal they have a very strong level of bias and hostility toward the governor.

Joy Behar, August 2021: “You’re just short of calling [Governor DeSantis] a negligent, homicidal sociopath, because that’s what he is.” She added: “What is he doing? He’s risking the lives of children, children’s parents, their grandparents, anyone they may come into contact with, so he can appeal to his white supremacist base, so he can continue in his career and get reelected.”

Sunny Hostin, June 2022:” Death-Santis … I think he’s a fascist and a bigot.”

Ana Navarro, April 2022 (on Governor DeSantis’s policies): “It’s anti-black, it’s anti-gay, it’s anti-LGBTQ+ community. And for some reason, the Republican base responds to it.” And “It’s anti-American. It’s what happens in Venezuela. It’s what happens in Nicaragua.”

Sunny Hostin, February 2022 (on Governor DeSantis’s policies): “It started with CRT. Let’s remember that – and those are anti-history laws, anti-black history laws, really,” she said. “If you start coming after black people, what comes next, right? Of course the LGBTQ+ community, and then women, and then other marginalized groups.”

“We will pass on this offer,” the email wrapped up. “Also please note- we don’t coordinate appearances or events of a political nature from the official office. Our role is to serve the people of Florida.”

The DeSantis team was hailed online for how they handled the invitation, turning the words uttered by the show’s co-hosts and using it against them.

We all know that these ladies aren’t interested in holding a civilized conversation with DeSantis and holding a true, genuine debate on the issues facing our country. They have made that much clear by the very statements posted above.

(RepublicanWire.org) – For the longest time, former President Donald Trump, an avid viewer of cable news could turn to Fox News for comfort. There were some disagreements — like an infamous attack on Fox News’ personality Megyn Kelly — but, for the most part, Trump and the network remained amicable.

Throughout his presidency, for example, Trump would tune in to see Fox News’ star hosts complimenting him and his policies while admonishing those who criticized him.

But the dynamics between Trump and the network are changing, the most noticeable shift occurring on Tuesday (July 26), when Fox didn’t play Trump’s speech in Washington, D.C., despite airing a portion of former Vice President Mike Pence’s speech given at the same event earlier in the day.

Naturally, Trump still has some supporters at the network, but the sentiment toward Trump — a Presidential candidate flirting with running in 2024 — has changed.

The network Trump has loved has prioritized coverage of President Joe Biden.

Trump also tore into the network after two of its host on “Fox And Friends” dismissed a poll that showed Trump still had the majority of GOP voters’ support, saying that the participants must be really staunch Trump supporters. Instead, they pointed to other polls that placed Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) in the lead among younger voters.

Acknowledging Trump’s outbursts aimed at Fox, author Daniel Cassino, who wrote a 2016 book about the network’s influence over American politics, chalked Trump’s frustrations to “not dominating Fox the way he did before.”

(RepublicanWire.org) – A recent poll from Harvard University Center for American Political Studies (CAPS) shows that Vice President Kamala Harris would beat Florida Governor Ron DeSantis 39 percent to 37 percent in a hypothetical 2024 presidential contest.

Note that as of June 21 poll, a whopping 52 percent of voters had an unfavorable opinion of Kamala, and she has routinely face-planted in interviews and appearances, blurting out incomprehensible word salads and offering little of substance. She has failed miserably in accomplishing anything on the two major issues Biden has assigned her: border control and voting rights. Border crossings are at an all-time high and she still hasn’t found time to visit there, while voting rights have all but disappeared from the national conversation.

Her interviews and cackles have become legendary, with fragmented, repeated sentences saying nothing and her cringe-worthy laugh piercing even the most tolerant ears.

This is not presidential material. Contrast it to Ron DeSantis, whose approval rating in April was at a robust 59 percent, according to a poll, and is probably even higher now. Unlike Kamala, he is an effective public speaker and routinely swats away his detractors with powerful arguments.

The poll claiming Kamala would beat DeSantis was conducted from June 28 to 29 among 1,308 registered voters. Notably, 23 percent of respondents were “undecided.”

The poll found that 71 percent of respondents said Biden should not run again, with 45 percent of those saying he’s a “bad president,” 30 percent citing his age and 26 percent saying it was time for a change.

The survey had good news for Harris in terms of the 2024 Democratic primaries, however. She placed second behind Biden among Democratic voters, garnering 18 percent support to the president’s 30 percent.

Even with these results, many took to twitter to show their support of DeSantis.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Ron DeSantis fired back on Sunday at Gavin Newsom’s desperate campaign targeting Florida. The Democrat governor recently announced an ad buy in the Sunshine State, proclaiming that California is the actual beacon of freedom in the country.

Newsom runs the most over-regulated, overbearing, overtaxed state in the union, to the point where you can’t even get a plastic straw. Never mind the soul-crushing COVID lockdowns that lasted years in California.

Newsom revealed his ad Sunday morning, and it’s as pathetic and out-of-touch as you’d imagine. Here’s an excerpt.

“It’s Independence Day. So let’s talk about what’s going on in America…

“Freedom is under attack in your state. I urge all of you living in Florida to join the fight — or join us in California, where we still believe in freedom: freedom of speech, freedom to choose, freedom from hate, and the freedom to love. Don’t let them take your freedom.”

Newsom actually believes that leftwing platitudes about “freedom to choose” and “freedom to love” will resonate in Florida, where the economy is booming and people enjoy individual freedom on a level only rivaled by other red states. Imagine thinking people would want to leave that behind in order to move to a state that is crime-ridden and exploding with homelessness, high taxes, and a government that won’t even let you make basic decisions without interference.

Here is the ad:

DeSantis spokesman Dave Abrams fired back with the obvious retort.

“Gavin Newsom might as well light a pile of cash on fire,” Dave Abrams, a spokesperson for DeSantis’s re-election campaign told The Daily Wire. “Pass the popcorn for his desperate attempt to win back the California refugees who fled the hellhole he created in his state to come to Florida.

“The people of Florida pay no mind to the pathetic smear campaigns from the Democrats and their allies in the corporate media,” Abrams added. “We’re too busy enjoying the freedom Governor Ron DeSantis has created in the Sunshine State.”

The mention of California refugees is the key. The reality is that people from Newsom’s state have been fleeing to Florida in droves over the last several years. Now they are busy enjoying the success and freedom delivered to them in Florida that they were sorely lacking in California.

If anything, the fact that Newsome is now running ads in a state thousands of miles away shows just how far California has fallen. DeSantis doesn’t even have to respond in kind because his state is booming.

This ad seems to reveal that Newsom wants to run for president in 2024.
