Gov. Ron DeSantis: ‘I Have Only Begun to Fight’

By Hannah Bleau | breitbart.com

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) made it clear this week that he has no plans to submit to the radical left and their fake news narratives, telling a group of Republicans at Allegheny County’s annual Lincoln Day Dinner that he has “only begun to fight” and warning the GOP cannot revert to “the days of the failed Republican establishment of yesteryear.”

DeSantis, a rising star in the Republican Party, delivered a half-hour speech to hundreds of Republicans attending the event in Pittsburgh, speaking about the corporate media, big tech oligarchs, and Florida’s tried and true pro-freedom approach to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic.

“All I can say to any state that has not followed suit: Open your state, open your schools, end these mask mandates, let people live and thrive,” DeSantis said during the address. “When it came right down to it, we chose freedom over Fauci-ism.”     <READ MORE>

Sen. Rick Scott to NBC: Don’t Pick and Choose When to Stand up for Human Rights; Refuse to Air 2022 Olympics Games in Communist China

Press Release | rickscott.senate.gov

Today, Senator Rick Scott sent a letter to NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell and NBC Olympics President Gary Zenkel urging them, once again, to condemn oppression and stand for human dignity by declining to air the 2022 Olympic Games unless they are moved out of Communist China. Senator Scott’s letter follows his previous letters (HERE and HERE) to NBC requesting they stand up for human rights and NBCUniversal’s decision to not air the 2022 Golden Globe Awards ceremony due to concerns about a lack of diversity among the members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

May 19, 2021

Dear Mr. Shell and Mr. Zenkel:


It came to my attention last week that NBCUniversal decided it would not air the 2022 Golden Globe Awards ceremony due to concerns about a lack of diversity among the members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. While many were surprised by this decision given NBC’s decades-long tradition of airing the awards program, I see this as an opportunity for your company to take a real stand in support of human rights. NBCUniversal has a unique opportunity in 2022 to condemn oppression and stand for human dignity by declining to air the 2022 Olympic Games unless they are moved out of Communist China. I urge you to immediately do so.

In the northwestern province of Xinjiang, the Chinese Communist Party has established a vast network of concentration camps to imprison, torture and enslave Uyghurs. These horrific abuses led to the United States Government, as well as the Canadian and Dutch parliaments, declaring the Communist Chinese government guilty of genocide. New reports have shown unspeakable crimes, including forced abortion and forced sterilization, have been committed against Uyghur women. Children are separated from their parents and pressured to renounce their Uyghur heritage. Video footage has shown blindfolded Uyghurs being loaded onto trains and transported to the concentration camps. Human rights groups have indicated that Beijing is guilty of violating every provision of the United Nations Genocide Convention. Communist China is taking similar actions in Tibet, coercing hundreds of thousands of Tibetan people into mass labor camps.

Communist China has also stripped away the civil liberties of Hong Kongers, leading to more than 5 million people losing their rights to due process, free speech and free assembly. Beijing effectively ended the “one country, two systems” framework by changing Hong Kong’s election laws to ensure that no elected officials will criticize the Chinese Communist Party. It has jailed and sentenced dozens of Hong Kong democracy activists, including Joshua Wong, Martin Lee and Jimmy Lai, on baseless charges after exercising their civil liberties and criticizing the government’s authoritarian crackdowns.     <READ MORE>
