The allegation was made in a sworn testimony for a federal case in Florida’s Middle District. The testimony against Omar is nothing less than damning and will surely draw the watchful eye of the FBI and other government intelligence agencies.

“Ilhan Omar accused of spying for Qatar, information passed to Iran,” by The Floridian’s Javier Manjarres – Controversial Muslim-American Rep. Ilhan Omar (D) has been accused of being a spy and was passing information to the Islamic State of Iran through the country of Qatar, which is said to have recruited her. According to the Jerusalem Post, the accusations made against Rep. Omar (pictured with CAIR Florida leader Hassan Shibly) that she passed along information to the Iranian government during the “testimony by Kuwaiti-born Canadian businessman Alan Bender, who was giving evidence in the trial of Sheik Khalid bin-Hamad al-Thani” in the United States District Court of the Middle District of Florida.

Florida Man President Trump Comes To Town And…

Florida Democrats are poised to hold a protest, President Donald Trump, as he rallies in Sunrise, Florida. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D) and FDP Chair Terrie Rizzo, along with a Baby Trump Balloon, will hold center-stage at the protest.

Trump Hates Latinos say Florida Democrats

Their words:

Trump’s tax scam disproportionately favors whites over minorities. His tax plan will affect one-in-four Latinos who will lose more than $13,000 in annual deductions and by 2027, six-in-ten Latinos will see an increase in their taxes of $251 per year.

More Latinos would lose coverage under Trump’s health care agenda than any other racial group. 

-Trump’s xenophobic agenda has impacted immigrant communities in Florida. His agenda has denied TPS to Venezuelans, and ramped up efforts to detain and deport Cubans

-Additionally, Trump’s hateful rhetoric against Hispanics and immigrants has created fear in vulnerable communities and makes them feel unsafe. Trump has also demonized and criminalized hard-working immigrants. 

Florida Republicans are expected to roll out the red carpet for Trump, as many of big name Republicans like Gov. Ron DeSantis and Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott, are expected to attend.

The Floridian will be reporting from the event. Stay tuned…>

LA MIGRA!!!! >>> “DeSantis calls on Florida legislature to pass E-Verify immigration requirement” By Floridian’s Daniel Molina – This week, Governor Ron DeSantis (R) called on the Florida Legislature to pass an E-Verify requirement on the upcoming 2020 legislative session, and he was joined in making the call with Senator Joe Gruters (R) and Rep. Cord Byrd (R). In a statement, Governor DeSantis commented that he wants “the Florida Legislature to pass and send to my desk common sense E-Verify legislation to ensure a safe and legal labor market in Florida.” The Florida Governor added that “the reason this is so timely is twofold- it’s about fairness for lawful immigrants and native-born workers, and it’s about public safety.” As well, he reassured his support for the legislature, noting that he trusts that “the Legislature will act swiftly in the 2020 Legislative Session” to “pass an E-Verify requirement for employers in this state to protect Florida workers, preserve the rule of law, and make our communities safer.”

“Commission moves forward on replacing Florida Supreme Court justices” By News Service of Florida – The panel responsible for culling a list of potential jurists for seats on the Florida Supreme Court began accepting applications Monday to replace former justices Robert Luck and Barbara Lagoa. The Florida Supreme Court Judicial Nominating Commission is expected to finalize a short-list of candidates for Gov. Ron DeSantis before the end of January. The seats became open last week when the U.S. Senate confirmed the appointments of Luck and Lagoa to the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. President Donald Trump in September nominated the pair to the federal court. Meeting by telephone Monday morning, the nominating commission laid out a tentative schedule to begin accepting applications for the vacancies. Later Monday, Joe Jacquot, DeSantis’ general counsel, sent a letter to nominating commission Chairman Daniel Nordby to formally request convening the commission.

Republican Party of Florida (RPOF) Chairman Joe Gruters is capitalizing on two “Fake News” stories that the liberal Miami New Times wrote against him, painting him as being a racist and anti-Immigrant.

Gruters sent out a state Senate re-election fundraising email asking supporters to help him push back against The New Times.

Andrew Gillum is beginning to share some of that campaign wealth he has been accumulating through his Forward Florida Action group, handing House Democrats a $150,000 boost to help them win house seats in the Republican-controlled state legislature.

DeSantis signed a couple of Executive Orders that will extend the State of Emergency for Hurricane Michael and to expand early voting in Gulf and Bay counties.

“Train deaths prompt Gov. DeSantis to seek more safety measures” By Sun Sentinel’s David Lyons – Deaths along the South Florida rail line used by Brightline and the Florida East Coast Railway have prompted Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to order the state’s transportation agency to pursue more safety measures. “Public safety is paramount, and we are deeply troubled by the recent tragic accidents on our railways,” DeSantis said. He has directed Kevin Thibault, secretary of the Florida Department of Transportation, and the agency “to work diligently” on the problem, he said. It’s too early to say what those changes will be. Neither DeSantis nor Thibault offered any specific measures for immediate adoption. Thibault said his department will do “everything we possibly can to avoid any tragedy from occurring on or near the state’s rail corridors. The department will keep working “closely with our engineering, law enforcement and public education partners, and will implement any necessary countermeasures to keep Floridians safe,” he added.

“Florida man tried to enlist ISIS to attack colleges that suspended, expelled him” By NBC’s Tim Stelloh – A Florida man was arrested for trying to enlist ISIS to carry out attacks against the deans of two schools where he’d been suspended or expelled from, authorities said Monday. Salman Rashid, 23, of North Miami Beach, faces charges of soliciting someone to bomb Miami-Dade and Broward colleges, court documents say. The documents, filed in United States District Court of Southern Florida, say that Rashid allegedly stalked a fellow student at Miami-Dade College and was suspended last December after he sent her threatening text messages.

Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis today announced the appointment of Peter Penrod as Chief of Staff. Penrod’s hiring was immediate.

HO HO HO! Don’t get ripped off

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody has released her Christmas list guide to not getting ripped off online by thieves. This guide gives out info on what to look out for when it comes to buying stuff securely online, “charity-related scams, item recalls and more,” and this year its available in Espanol. 

“State fights cities, counties on gun law” By News Service of Florida – Pointing to a “hierarchical relationship” with local governments, the state late Friday asked an appeals court to uphold a 2011 law that has threatened tough penalties if city and county officials approve gun regulations. Lawyers in the offices of Attorney General Ashley Moody and Gov. Ron DeSantis filed a 42-page brief arguing that the 1st District Court of Appeal should overturn a circuit judge’s ruling that said parts of the law were unconstitutional. Florida since 1987 has barred cities and counties from passing regulations that are stricter than state firearms laws, and the penalties in the 2011 law were designed to strengthen that “preemption.” The law, for example, could lead to local officials facing $5,000 fines and potential removal from office for passing gun regulations.

Again, This is worth repeating. When was the last time you heard a US Congresswoman was accused of spying?

“Ilhan Omar accused of spying for Qatar, information passed to Iran,” by The Floridian’s Javier Manjarres – Controversial Muslim-American Rep. Ilhan Omar (D) has been accused of being a spy and was passing information to the Islamic State of Iran through the country of Qatar, which is said to have recruited her. According to the Jerusalem Post, the accusations made against Rep.

OH Matty Boy – “’OK boomer’: Millennial Republican responds to Kellyanne Conway’s concerns about marijuana” By CNN’s Veronica Stracqualursi – A millennial Republican congressman, and one of President Donald Trump’s closest allies on Capitol Hill, is hitting back at White House counselor Kellyanne Conway’s concerns about marijuana legalization. “I have worked to be a positive influence with the President on marijuana reform. To my friend, Kellyanne Conway, I would say, “OK, boomer,'” Rep. Matt Gaetz, 37, said in an interview with CNN’s “Smerconish Show” on Saturday, using a viral social media phrase that millennials and Generation Z say to respond to older people they view as out of touch. The Florida Republican argued that the issue of legalizing marijuana is “largely generational” rather than partisan. His support of legalizing marijuana nationwide is a rare break from the policy stances of the Trump administration. In April, Conway told CNN, “We’re very concerned about the effect (of marijuana) on the brain, among young people.”

Woof! Woof! — “Sarasota lawmaker’s felony animal abuse bill signed into law by President Trump” By Fox 13’s Kimberly Kuizon – The job is never-ending at Nate’s Honor Animal Rescue. “We nurse them back to health and give them love and food. If they’re really shy, get them socialized,” said Rob Oglesby. As the organization’s director of development, Rob Oglesby and his team have one goal: “We get to see them to walk out the front door and see them go home to a family.” Often, the stories of how each dog or cat arrived at Nate’s could break your heart. “Unfortunately we get more than our fair share of animals that have been abandoned and abused,” said Mary Dougherty. Mary Dougherty sits on the group’s board. She believes a new bill, spearheaded by congressmen Vern Buchanan and Ted Deutch and now signed into law by President Trump, will help prevent animal abuse.

Stop Right There! — “Supreme Court blocks House from receiving Trump financial records for now” By CNN’s Ariane de Vogue – The House of Representatives will not get President Donald Trump’s financial records for now, the Supreme Court said on Monday. The ruling is a win for Trump, who is fighting on several fronts to shield the records from becoming public. In a brief order, the court granted the President’s emergency request to block a subpoena from House Democrats to his long-time accounting firm from moving forward. There were no noted dissents. Chief Justice John Roberts and the other eight justices will now have to decide whether to hear the merits in a thorny dilemma that would require them to determine the extent of Congress’ oversight authority. This first major separation-of-powers test of the high court, as other potential impeachment-related issues head its way, offers a challenge to a chief justice who has tried to protect the judiciary from the politicking of the day.

“The people of Hong Kong spoke loud and clear that they will not tolerate efforts by Communist China to take away their rights as promised to them during the handover in 1997. Hong Kong sent a powerful message to Communist China that they will not back down or be silenced. The fight for freedom and democracy isn’t going away, and Secretary of the Communist Party Xi and his puppets need to realize that their egregious violations of human rights are what caused the protests in the first place. Xi must immediately reverse course and start living up to his promises.”-Sen. Rick Scott

“President Trump referred to as the ‘chosen one’ by Energy Sec.” By Floridian’s Javier Manjarres – Energy Secretary Rick Perry believes President Donald Trump is the “chosen one.” During an appearance on Fox & Friends this past weekend, Perry divulged that he had given Trump a “one-pager” list of Old Testament “imperfect” kings that went on to do great things.” “God’s used imperfect people all through history. King David wasn’t perfect. Saul wasn’t perfect. Solomon wasn’t perfect,” Perry said.

“Trump accuses Pelosi of being “incapable” of moving USMCA,” by The Floridian’s Javier Manjarres – As More and more Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives lend their names in support of President Donald Trump’s USMCA trade deal, the president has openly called on Speaker Nancy Pelosi to put the measure up for a floor vote in the House. In an Oval Office press conference with reporters, Trump blamed the stalled bill squarely on Pelosi’s shoulders, saying” It’s sitting on Nancy Pelosi’s desk. She’s incapable of moving it. Everyone knows it’s a great deal, she knows it’s a great deal. She said it.” Trump also said that because the deal was so “great,” that “most” House Democrats were going to vote for it. “She doesn’t want to do it because a couple of the unions –AFL_CIO,” said Trump “They are asking her to hold it for a while…Nancy Pelosi should put it up for a vote.”

@realDonaldTrump“Democrats committed to impeaching Trump for no reason.” Will backfire into big 2020 Victory for Republicans!- Laura Ingraham

@RepAdamSchiff – Trump has now twice sought foreign interference in our elections to help him politically, first from Russia, and now from Ukraine. This president threatens the integrity of our elections, and Congress must consider the remedy. It cannot wait. The urgency is real.

 

 

 

 @SenRickScott – #HongKong sent a powerful message to Communist China. The fight for democracy isn’t going away. Xi & his puppets need to realize their egregious violations of human rights are what caused the protests to begin with. Xi must immediately reverse course & live up to his promises.

@RepDMP– No one is above the law. The Trump Admin has no authority to obstruct our investigation to find the truth. Don McGahn is an essential witness and I look forward to hearing his testimony. The people deserve to know the truth. #DefendDemocracy

@RepDWStweets – It’s time to end gender-based violence now. That’s why I joined other @HouseDemWomen to reintroduce the International Violence Against Women Act, which increases U.S. efforts to combat gender-based violence #IVAWA #GenerationEqualityT

@RepRossSpano – I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Continuing resolutions are NOT the way we should manage the government.

@lizbethkb – @DaneEagle has proven himself to be a trusted and committed conservative with the leadership skills that Southwest Florida deserves in Congress. I have seen firsthand his strong conviction to stand up for what is right, and he will fight for our values.

@ShevrinJones – When the Congresswoman calls for a meeting, you don’t ask any questions, just make sure you’re in place. So grateful to have @RepWilsoninto us with one message, and that is to not forget to serve the people who elected you.

@JohnMorganESQ – Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely & without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you’ll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life & you’ll find that you have more of it!!
