TALLAHASSEE, Florida – Florida Agricultural Commissioner Adam Putnam’s allies might have attacked front-runner Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) as being out of touch with President Donald Trump, but DeSantis’ campaign has responded with a Trump-style attack to counter those claims.

One of the Florida gubernatorial primary race’s early controversies involves an onslaught of negative, and according to the DeSantis campaign, “defamatory” ads from the National Liberty Federation (NLF), a 501(c)(4) social welfare nonprofit that is not required to disclose its donors.

The ads claimed DeSantis was out of step with President Donald Trump and “voted to give food stamps to people who were in the United States illegally.” The ad further claimed DeSantis “has taken hundreds of thousands from Wall Street, defense contractors and wealthy lawyers.” Continue reading at breitbart.com.

A wealthy Democratic donor club plotting the future of the liberal movement hopes to be fighting for reparations by 2022, according to a document obtained by the Washington Free Beacon from the Democracy Alliance’s spring conference this week in Atlanta.

The desire was stated in the invitation for a Monday reception during the annual spring gathering, which was attended by top Democratic Party officials such as DNC chairman Tom Perez, former Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe, and Reps. Raul Grijalva (Ariz.) and Mark Pocan (Wis.).

The reception, “Way to Win: 2022 Victory Party,” was presented as a look forward at what’s possible if Democrats can be effective in coming elections.

“It’s 2022 and we are celebrating policy victories across the nation: Medicare for All and Free College, and next on the agenda is Reparations,” the group projected, according to an invitation to the event.

“Take a ride in our time machine to hear from the true political geniuses who made this happen,” it says. Read the rest of this article at freebeacon.com.

The Fountains of Free Speech

 

Earlier this week the conservative LA street artist, Sabo, had his Twitter account banned permanently.

He was offered no reason for the shutdown, but by now the reason has become all too obvious. Social media is controlled by the globalist left and they want to control what people see and think. Shutting down conservatives is part of their agenda. Milo Yiannopoulos was one of the first to be banned. His offense? He made fun of a black actress for her performance in a ‘Ghostbusters’ remake. Someone’s feelings were hurt? Anything interpreted by the left as ‘offensive’ is enough reason for the left to silence conservatives.

A few years ago Charles “Chuck” Johnson, who operates ‘WeSearchr’ with Pax Dickinson, told me it would be a matter of time before my Twitter account was shut down just like his was. I don’t consider myself to be part of the ‘alt right,’ but that doesn’t matter. The left has lumped me in with them anyway. The Deep State left calls the shots. They don’t give two shakes about the First Amendment.

We once reached 500,000 people with a single new cartoon posted on FaceBook. Now we’re lucky to reach a few thousand. On Twitter, I have been shadow banned. We have over 126,000 Twitter followers. We all know what has been happening on YouTube. Conservative voices such as Mike Adams have been shut down for no reason. The globalists are losing the argument and so they’re unceremoniously pulling the rights’ plug. Continue reading at grrrgraphics.com.

Leftist Campaign Against Laura Ingraham Backfires

Ratings up over 20%

A funny thing has happened since the Left began its campaign to drive Fox News host Laura Ingraham off the air: Her ratings are up, a lot – by more than 20 percent compared to her last week on the air before the current controversy began.

The leftist-organized advertiser boycott began on March 29, after Ingraham tweeted about Parkland high school anti-gun activist David Hogg, and continued in spite of Ingraham’s quick apology.

As of Friday, April 13, 27 companies had announced they would pull their advertising from the show, but one – Ace Hardware – announced it would resume its sponsorship of the Ingraham Angle, citing the “incomplete” information it had when it originally announced its withdrawal.

The Media’s ‘Sean Hannity Standard’ Is a Wonderful Idea!

by John Nolte

From what we know so far, conservative talker Sean Hannity had a limited business relationship with Michael Cohen, who is also President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, and who just had his offices, home, and hotel room raided by the FBI. Because Hannity is a commentator with four hours to fill every day, he has a lot to say about the raid.

But now that a partisan judge (to say the least — the swamp is deep, my friends) has forced Cohen to reveal that Hannity is a client, everyone in the establishment media (read those with much lower ratings than Hannity) have the knives out because Hannity did not reveal this potential conflict of interest.

So desperate are they to bloody Hannity, the media have just done a very good thing with the creation of what we will call the “Sean Hannity Standard,” a standard that demands commentators and reporters disclose any and all potential conflicts-of-interest pertaining to the story or person they are reporting on.

What a wonderful idea!

Over at the far-left Politico, Michael Calderone writes, that Hannity “should have disclosed that he’s a client of Cohen’s.”

What a wonderful idea!

Kathleen Bartzen Culver, director of the Center for Journalism Ethics at the University of Wisconsin, told Politico, “commentators should still be expected to maintain independence from subjects they covering and disclose relevant ties.”

What a wonderful idea!

CNN, Media Matters, MSNBC… Everyone agrees with this wonderful idea!

And I could not agree more.

It is long past time for the media to pour sunshine on any and all potential conflicts-of-interest.

And the timing could not be more perfect. Good grief, less than 24 hours before the creation of the “Sean Hannity Standard,” former-President Bill Clinton’s very own press secretary George Stephanopoulos interviewed James Comey, the disgraced former chief of the FBI, about his decision not to prosecute Bill Clinton’s wife Hillary over her countless email crimes (bold type, mine).

Naturally, neither ABC or Stephanopoulos bothered to disclose this.

But thanks to the “Sean Hannity Standard” this will never happen again.

Marco Rubio, Darling of G.O.P. Establishment, Hires a Thorn in Its Side

WASHINGTON — As chief executive of the influential conservative think tank Heritage Action for America, Michael Needham waged years of unforgiving political warfare against the Republican Party establishment, deepening the divide between party leaders and grass-roots activists that helped elevate Donald J. Trump to the presidency.

Now Mr. Needham is leaving his job there to become chief of staff for one of the Republican establishment’s favorite sons, Senator Marco Rubio of Florida.

The move is certain to raise questions about whether Mr. Rubio, whose hopes of becoming president in 2016 were dashed by Mr. Trump, may be positioning himself for another run. And it underscores how unsettled the conservative movement remains nearly two years after Mr. Trump won the Republican presidential nomination and became the party’s improbable leader.

Judge Jeanine Pirro Blasts ‘Pompous, Egotistical, Patronizing Liar’ Jim Comey


.
.
On Saturday’s Justice With Judge Jeanine, Judge Pirro talks about former FBI director’s new book, and more importantly, the man himself:

Now why would you believe a guy with a history replete with lies dishonesty and contradictions? We’ll find out Tuesday when disgraced former FBI director James Comey’s book, A higher Loyalty, Truth, Lies and Leadership, hits the stands.

Truth, lies and leadership? Really? Talk about an oxymoron. Jim you’re the ultimate liar. You lied on multiple occasions to multiple people including Congress under oath and that’s a crime. Truth? You refused to follow the law causing both Republicans and Democrats to call for your head. And leadership? You violated the rules of your own agency by leaking classified information to a friend to leak to the New York Times. You went along with Loretta Lynch’s false narrative, that Hilary’s case was a matter, not an investigation. And folks, get ready for a knife fight between Jim Comey and Loretta Lynch on both that as well as that tarmac charade.

Jim you’ve repeatedly proven your inability to run the FBI in a non-political way. You’ve stayed silent as the New York Times retracted the story that Hillary’s FBI review was a security referral and not a criminal referral as if the FBI is a security company installing locks and peephole’s. You say the President is unethical, while you turned a well-respected agency into a haven of organized criminal conspirators at the top echelon. Your book, Jim isn’t about leadership, it’s about butt-kissing, like when you were struck by the way Barack Obama could see and evaluate a variety of angles and complicated issues, his insight and ability to connect with an audience. Yeah, right Jim. Barack’s really bright. Like when he bragged about traveling to all 57 states. the guy’s running for president and he thinks there were 57 states…

…You’re a pompous, egotistical, patronizing, condescending, holier-than-thou political operative trying to redeem your reputation and cash in on lies, which is the opposite of truth and leadership your book is about. A higher loyalty to none other than you, yourself. And that’s my open
