When you are a leader and promoted to high-ranking positions, you end up a hero to some and a villain to others. You have to take the good with the bad, especially in politics.
Following the 15 days to stop the spread, shut down fiasco, Florida GOP Governor Ron DeSantis took control of the COVID outbreak in his state and set in motion plans to protect the elderly especially, which has paid off in spades for their large population of retirees.
During a speech at a dinner hosted by the Heritage Foundation, Governor DeSantis went after President Biden and other “elites” in Washington D.C., slamming Biden’s vaccine mandate, “This is fundamentally about an abuse of federal power and unconstitutional use of the federal government.”
“While other states kept locking people down, Florida kept lifting people up. We did not sub-contract out leadership to Dr. Fauci,” DeSantis insisted.
“I resolved in the state of Florida, we would be a free state; we would not allow our state to descend into a Faucian dystopia in which people’s freedoms were curtailed and their livelihoods were ruined”.
“In September, the U.S. reported about 194,000 new jobs nationwide; Florida’s share of that was 84,500 jobs,” DeSantis pointed out proudly.
He then promised to try and get legislation enacted which would create an Election, Crimes, and Integrity unit to protect against election violations.
Then he targeted the D.C. elites:
Biden really represents potentially the culmination of—or, I mean, hopefully, the coup de grâce of—this entrenched political class that has really ruined a lot about our country over the last generation. And it’s not limited to just Democrats. There’s a uni-party in Washington, D.C., and they look out for themselves more than the rest of the American people. …
Our ruling class doesn’t think [there’s] anything distinctive about American citizenship. That’s why they would consider paying reparations to people that came across our border illegally, because they think people have a right to come, regardless of the laws and Constitution of the United States.
These elites have done more than anybody to facilitate the rise of China. The fact of the matter is had they not done most-favored nation and all this stuff for China, China would be much weaker today. The U.S. ruling class has been China’s best friend, and now we look at them as by far our most significant adversary. … You look at the next three years what China’s going to do? They watch Biden floundering around; these people are really tough. They’re going to make sure that they exact a huge amount of price based on Biden’s failures, and that is not just Biden. That’s a whole cadre of these elites. And the thing is, nobody’s ever held accountable. If you’re in the club in D.C., there’s no accountability. How the hell else does Fauci still have a job?
