Who you Gonna Call? Not Nikki Fried

For those of you old enough to remember when ‘Happy Days’ Fonzi literally “Jumped the Shark” on water skis as the TV series came to a close, Agriculture Commissioner and Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Nikki Fried’s recent movie-inspired meme not only jumps the shark but takes the cake as being one of the weirdest attempts to draw attention to oneself in the history of Florida politics.

Commissioner Fried’s FDAC released the cringy “Galsbusters” meme of her and a couple of dogs dressed up in what looks like “Black Bloc” or some kind of kinky military uniform to combat the large African land snail invasion that has plagued Pasco County.

God bless her.

DeSantis Responds to Crist's Allegations by Placing Economic Woes on Biden

Just as President Joe Biden continues to blame the skyrocketing rate of inflation and all of the country’s economic woes on anyone he can think of, Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Rep. Charlie Crist, is blaming Florida’s housing costs on who else, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. READ MORE

Congresswoman Kat Cammack-You can't walk down the sidewalk without tripping over one of Biden's crises. From the botched withdrawal in Afghanistan, to surging crime, skyrocketing inflation, and more, it's no surprise his approval rating is at an all-time low.

January 6th Committee-"We have interviewed thousands of witnesses, we have received tens of thousands of documents… we are putting together this picture whether they chose to be a patriot... or not."

US Rep Kathy Castor-We will not give up – a livable planet is at stake.

Lauren Book-Honored to join a tremendous group of women supporting change-maker Tracy Merlin’s nomination to the FL Commission on the Status of Women — and so glad to see my friend Susan Kennedy, founder of Bullets4Life (check them out!). Together, we CAN create change & combat gun violence.

Rep. Carlos A. Gimenez-We have given way too much power to the executive branch and unelected bureaucrats.

The power must be handed back to the people through their elected representatives. That’s why I’m introducing legislation to keep Remain in Mexico in place and help secure our southern border.
