Top Three Takeaways – December 7th, 2021

  1. Didn’t see that one coming. Yesterday, when I talked with former President Trump, if I’d had known of the news that broke late in the day, I’d have given him a hard time about it. Congressman Devin Nunes becoming the CEO of Trump’s soon-to-be, social network TRUTH Social, is one I never saw coming. And if he’s half as diligent in the social media realm as he was in Congress, he’s bound to be successful. That said he’s a huge loss in Congress, especially should Republicans take control of the House as is expected after the midterms. His investigative work on the House Intelligence Committee produced the basis for Special Prosecutor John Durham’s ongoing investigation into the most pervasive conspiracy in US History, the Trump-Russia collusion hoax. The three indictments, and counting, of Democrat operatives responsible for the conspiracy almost certainly wouldn’t have occurred if not for his work in what became known as the “Nunes Memo”, which tied into what I referred to as my 30-Count Indictment, which I subsequently broke upon release of the memo. Anyway, it’s like this. The guy’s an American hero and they’re in short supply in Congress. He’ll be missed, so he better blow the lid off of the new gig to make it worth everyone’s while. 
  2. No really, stop. You may have already noticed but Democrats are generally desperate. And with good reason. They control the entire federal government and the country’s managed to go to hell in a hand basket in just a matter of months under their watch. There frankly isn’t a level of suck to describe how truly awful their leadership ofan otherwise great country has been. Anyway, with Democrats generally desperate nationally, naturally they’ve straight up lost their minds in Florida where for the first time in our state’s history they’re now outnumbered by Republicans. So as mentioned last week, Governor DeSantis is proposing to bring back Florida’s State Guard. A volunteer force of 200 Guardsman who’d serve in a capacity similar to the National Guard but under the state’s exclusive direction. Now, never mind that Florida’s State Guard is constitutional and played a crucial role in helping protect Florida during World War II. No, this is crazy talk. Never mind that there are 22 other states which currently have state guards, nope you’re supposed to be a low information voter who doesn’t know of these facts. And most importantly you’re supposed to think Governor DeSantis is a scary dictator. No Really. Florida’s part-time Agriculture Commissioner, and full-time propagandist Nikki Fried (who’s yet realized most of her own party doesn’t take her seriously let alone rank and file Floridians), Tweeted this: Can't believe I have to say this, but Florida doesn't need a paramilitary force that only answers to @RonDeSantisFL. Millions of Floridians know what it's like to live under regimes like this — and came to our state to escape them. This must be stopped. And Florida’s biggest political phony Charlie Crist Tweeted this: No Governor should have his own handpicked secret police. And just for good measure,Democrat strategist Ameshia Cross said thisRepublicans taking cues from dictators, authoritarian regimes & some of the world's most brutal nation states are the name of the game. DeSantis is making moves to advance his own reign of terror. We've seen this type of militia before in Syria & Iraq. I can’t imagine how far gone one mentally must be to buy into jokers attempting to equate DeSantis' constitutional proposal, which has already played a pivotal role in protecting Florida previously, with being a combination of Castro, Maduro, Chavez, Assad and Hussian combined. So really Democrats, stop. Floridians are smarter and more informed than you think and probably more than you. You’re not fooling anyone, but you are making fools of yourselves.
  3. They’re coming to Florida and they’re buying when they get here. According to the latest report from the National Association of Realtors, Florida now accounts for greater than a fifth, 22%, of all property sales to foreign buyers. And where are they coming? South Florida of course. The Miami metro, which includes the tri-county, accounts for 52% of all sales in Florida. With nearly two years ofpent-updemand from foreign buyers, if you thought Florida’s red-hot housing market had run its course, think again. They’re coming to Florida and they’re buying when they get here from all over the world.
