On Wednesday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis stood up to President Joe Biden and defended the Sunshine state from Biden's criticism earlier this week.
“Biden has taken to himself to try and single out Florida over COVID [Chinese coronavirus],” DeSantis said, noting that Biden's whole presidential campaign rode on how "he was going to shut down the virus," yet all he has done is import "more virus from around the world by having a wide-open southern border.”

Under Biden, there have been “hundreds of thousands of people pouring across every month, and it’s not just from Mexico,” DeSantis said, noting that the border crossers are “rarely from Mexico, you have over 100 different countries, where people are pouring through — not only are they letting them though — but they’re then farming them out all across our communities all across this country.”
After coming into the United States illegally, he added, these people are being put on planes and buses by the government and not worrying about the Chinese coronavirus. “Who knows what new variants are out there,” DeSantis said, but “whatever variants are around the world, they’re coming across that southern border.” So, DeSantis clarified that Biden “isn’t shutting down the virus; he’s helping to facilitate it in the country.”
“We said from the beginning we’re going to make it available for all, but we’re not going to mandate it on anybody. That’s ultimately an individual’s choice to be able to do it,” DeSantis said, slamming Biden's administration for wanting to mandate the vaccine. “Give me a break … the question is we either have a free society, or we can have a biomedical security state."
He continued, "[In Florida] we’re a free state, people are going to be free to choose, to make their own decision about themselves, about their families, about their kid’s education, and about putting food on the table, and Joe Biden suggests that if you don’t do lock down policies then you should “get out of the way.” But let me tell you this, if you’re coming after rights of parents in Florida, I’m standing in your way. I’m not going to let you get away with it."
DeSantis said, "If you’re trying to deny kids a proper in-person education, I’m going to stand in you’re way and I’m going to stand up for the kids in Florida. If you’re trying to restrict people, impose mandates, if you’re trying to ruin their jobs and livelihood, and their small business, if you’re trying to lock people down, I’m standing in your way, and I’m standing for the people of Florida."
“Why don’t you do your job? Why don’t you get this border secure, and until you do that, I don’t want to hear a blip about Covid from you,” he said directly to Biden.
I doubt he will ever get a response though.

Sen. Cruz: 'Pelosi is Drunk on Power' - Probably Vodka Too
On Thursday, Senator Ted Cruz slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the Senate floor, declaring that she is drunk on power with her new mask mandates. Power isn't the only thing she is drunk on...I'd say there is some vodka in the mix too.
“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts, absolutely. Great men are almost exclusively bad men, even where they exercise influence and not authority,” Cruz said, pulling from a series of letters to Bishop Craig from Lord Acton. He added that “those words were true in 1887, and they’re true today.”

He reads it, and then promptly wipes his chin. However, he then holds the note where the camera can see it at different points. Once, it even faces the camera directly.

That can't happen again," he told Newsmax. ''The science says...
