‘There Will Be Consequences’: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis Warns Rioters to Stay Out of His State

Florida | May 11, 2021

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis issued a warning to rioters, such as Antifa members, saying that there will be consequences if they come to the sunshine state. According to Faithwire, DeSantis made the remarks during a press conference last week where he pointed to Portland, Oregon, as the epicenter of the ongoing riots that began last spring. “I think if you look around the country, what happens is, like in Portland, these people riot every night,” DeSantis said. “They go, they get their mug shot, and then they get put right back on the street and do it again. That’s what we don’t want.”…

Trump, DeSantis, Cruz, Rubio, Tim Scott and Rick Scott speaking at pro-life summit

Florida | May 4, 2021

A half-dozen potential 2024 Republican presidential contenders are speaking Monday and Tuesday at the Susan B. Anthony List’s Pro-Life Leaders Summit in Palm Beach, Fla. Headlining Monday’s session at the conference of social conservative activists and leaders is former President Trump, who has repeatedly flirted with making a 2024 presidential run.

Also speaking Monday, according to a schedule that was shared first with Fox News, are Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Sen. Rick Scott, whom pundits consider potential presidential contenders in the next White House race.

Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina is scheduled to keynote Tuesday’s session. Seen as a rising star on the right, Scott’s seen that star shine brighter the past couple of days, following his GOP rebuttal last week to President Biden’s address to a joint session of Congress. The speech by Scott, the only Black Republican in the Senate, won rave reviews by many conservatives.

Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Marco Rubio of Florida, 2016 GOP presidential candidates who are considered potential 2024 contenders, will also address the conference on Tuesday. Former Vice President Mike Pence – who has long spotlighted his faith and values and who chose the Palmetto Family Council, a conservative Christian nonprofit based in South Carolina, as the group to whom he would give his first post-vice presidency speech – will address the SBA List gathering via video…

DeSantis suspends all local coronavirus emergency orders effective immediately

Florida | May 3, 2021

ORLANDO, Fla. — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said he’s suspending all local government emergency orders related to COVID-19 effective immediately.

DeSantis made the announcement in St. Petersburg on Monday morning.

“We’re no longer in a state of emergency,” DeSantis said.

He said he’s using his executive power to suspend all local government emergency orders until a bill goes into effect on July 1 invalidating all remaining local coronavirus emergency orders.

Orange County leaders recently announced its three-phase plan to gradually phase out its mask mandate.

But the bill signed by DeSantis that goes into effect July 1 says an emergency order issued by a city or county has to be “limited in duration, applicability, and scope in order to reduce any infringement on individual..
