Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis didn’t hold back his quick wit at this week’s Turning Point event when he wished President Joe Biden a speedy recovery from COVID-19 and then wished America a “speedy recovery” from the Biden presidency.
“I want to, on behalf of the State of Florida, wish Biden a speedy recovery from COVID. And I also want to wish the United States of America a speedy recovery from Joe Biden,” the Florida governor said. DeSantis is expected to throw his name in the hat for the 2024 Presidential election.
You have to love his humor because it’s what we are all thinking. DeSantis also realizes how crucial the November, 2022 midterm elections will be to the Republican Party and the American people.
He told the crowd, “if we get that red wave in the House and in the Senate, and Republicans have majorities, here’s what I think we as voters want to see – we want to see you do something with those majorities.”
He listed the numerous failures under the Biden Administration. If he listed all of them, he’d still be giving his speech.
“We want to see you hold [Biden] and his ilk accountable for what they’re doing at the southern border,” said DeSantis, who has been fighting the administration’s open borders policy. He also took a shot at Governor Gavin Newsom, D-CA. Newsom, who is failing California, is expected to be a Democratic contender for the White House in 2024.
“We believe every parent in the state of Florida has a right to send their little kid to elementary school without having radical gender ideology injected into the curriculum,” DeSantis said. “It is totally inappropriate to take some six year old kid and to say, well, ‘You may have been born a boy, but maybe you’re really a girl.’ That is wrong and may fly in California but it does not fly here in the state of Florida.”

Videotapes from Jan. 6 Committee Witness Interviews Vanish
Videotapes containing witness interviews conducted by the Democrat-led January 6 congressional committee have disappeared. The chairman of the House Administration oversight subcommittee, Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.), expressed his apprehension on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show.
According to Loudermilk, all videotapes of depositions have vanished, raising questions about the preservation of crucial evidence. He argued that, under House rules, these tapes qualified as congressional evidence, especially since some clips were aired during hearings. Loudermilk contended that the tapes should have been preserved by the now-defunct Jan. 6 committee and its chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.).
Loudermilk’s revelation has broader implications, potentially impacting criminal trials in both state court in Georgia and federal court in Washington, where individuals, including former President Donald Trump, face charges related to the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021. Notably, Trump’s legal team had recently requested evidence from the Jan. 6 committee but was denied by a judge.
The situation takes a further twist as Loudermilk disclosed that the J6 committee had sent certain evidence, such as transcripts, to the Biden White House and the Homeland Security Department. Shockingly, these transcripts have now been returned to Loudermilk’s GOP-led subcommittee almost entirely redacted, preventing the disclosure of their contents.
The lack of records regarding witnesses, their statements, and the extensive redactions have raised concerns among House Republicans. Loudermilk emphasized that these documents belong to the House and should not have been sent in such a heavily redacted form. The chairman questioned the motives behind the redactions, asking why a Democrat-run House was allowed to have unredacted documents while a Republican committee’s efforts were obstructed. This development adds another layer of complexity to the ongoing investigations into the events surrounding January 6, 2021.
