Rep. Matt Gaetz (R) mocks Joe “Plagiarizin” Biden on Twitter, reaches out to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) to remind her that he and she have introduced climate change legislation, while Biden was too busy copying & pasting his own.


Gov. Ron DeSantis added his two cents on the arrest of former Broward Sheriff deputy that failed Americans during the Stoneman Douglas school shooting in 2018:

“Scot Peterson’s gross dereliction of duty cost lives. I hope the charges brought against him lead to justice for the victims and their families.”


Rep. Lois Frankel (D), along with her fellow House Democrats, voted in favor of a new DREAMER and TPS bill.

“Florida is home to over 90,000 Dreamers who have tremendously contributed to our community and our economy. I’ve had the privilege of meeting many DACA recipients here in Central Florida, including hosting some as interns in my Congressional offices. These Dreamers are ambitious and hardworking young people. They are the reason I have fought tirelessly for this legislation protecting these proud Americans.” –Rep. Darren Soto (D)


Again, Biden is slipping and Harris, O’Rourke, and Castro are gaining, but only by a few points. Sanders seems to have stalled, hence his growing attacks against Uncle Joe.

We predict that Biden’s overall lead will be cut in half (or more) by the end of the year.

15 Arrested in child p*rn sting

Southwest Florida officials say they want kids to have a safe summer vacation, and they have arrested more than a dozen people accused of possessing, promoting, producing or failing to report child pornography. 

The alleged offenders have been arrested since February, officials announced in a Tuesday news conference.

While many of the arrests have been reported in the media, now officials have given the multi-agency effort a name: Operation Safe Summer.

The most recent arrest is the wife of a man previously arrested on 20 charges of possessing child porn. Stacey Gridley, a local middle school teacher and Cub Scout den leader, was arrested Friday, accused of failing to report her husband’s believed child porn stash.

Stacey Gridley’s arrest report was not available Tuesday, and the release did not name the school.

Many of the arrests have been widely publicized, including Stephen Sroka’s April arrest. Sroka, the owner of Fort Myers pizzeria Poppy’s Pizza, killed himself soon after he was charged.”-Source
