Asleep at the Wheel on Cuba

JUICE—President Joe Biden is said to be thinking about sending a signal into Cuba to give the oppressed Cuban people internet access, but nothing has transpired.

According to Senator Marco Rubio, he and former President Donald Trump had already had a plan in place to do just that, and if Trump were to have won a second term, the internet plan would already have been set in motion.

Here is what Senator Rubio told The Floridian this week in Washington: READ MORE

 

Mask Mandate Mania

Speaking of Washington, a standing order has been given to Capitol Police to have all staffers and visitors arrested on the spot if they are not wearing a mask on the House side. On the Senate side, no such order was given. This is a pathetic political play by Speaker Nancy Pelosi. READ MORE

 

Mask Mandate Mania Coming To Florida?

Not a chance in hell, but State Senator Shevrin Jones is still pushing Gov. Ron DeSantis to order all Floridians to wear a mask in response to the increase in COVID-19 infections. READ MORE

 

U.S. Rep. Stephanie Murphy-As #COVID cases surge in Florida, a state of emergency has been declared again in Orange County. The good news is that if you get vaccinated you can protect yourself, your loved ones, and our most vulnerable populations that can’t get vaccinated.

Rep. Val Demings-I just cosponsored new legislation to extend the federal eviction moratorium to the end of 2021. The moratorium was originally scheduled to end this Saturday. Please get vaccinated and together we will get through this.

Rep. Darren Soto-Proud to work across the aisle to allocate funding towards helping our Afghan allies who helped us during the war. As we continue efforts to bring our troops home, we must also remember to protect them. Now, the bill heads to @POTUS’ desk.

Congressman Carlos A. Gimenez-According to Pelosi’s whacky science, I can take my mask off only when I cross this arbitrary line. This is the craziness in Washington.

Rick Scott-These vaccine mandates are just the latest attempt by @POTUS& the Democrats to control Americans. I got the vaccine & encourage others to as well, but that’s each person’s decision. We all must stand up against this gross overreach:

Congresswoman Kat Cammack-In today’s edition of Pelosi’s abuse of power, Capitol Police have been directed to arrest staff and visitors to comply with her mask mandate for vaccinated individuals. For Members, they advise not arresting but “reporting Members to SAA for their failure to comply.”
