DeSantis Slams Biden For Removing Marxist Terrorist Group From Terror List

Published

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis responded to President Biden’s decision to remove a Marxist guerilla group U.S.’s list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations.
A
statement from DeSantis’ office said it was a “reckless decision to remove the radically communist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) from the United States list of foreign terrorist organizations” because the group has, for decades, “perpetuated countless murders, bombings, assassinations, kidnapping and attacks under the guise of ‘redistributing wealth.’”

DeSantis said, “President Biden’s decision to remove the FARC from the State Department’s list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations will embolden terrorist groups throughout Latin America, empower narco-traffickers and pave the way for Castro-chavismo in Colombia.”

“Biden’s policy is an insult to members of the Colombian American community, many of whom fled that terrorist group’s barbaric attacks on civilians,” DeSantis continued. “This is a serious mistake by the Biden administration and will hurt Floridians. With this mind, my office will ascertain what policy measures our state can take to protect our residents from a resurgent FARC and other terrorist Marxist groups.”

“My administration stands squarely on the side of the millions of Floridians who want democracy, peace and freedom to endure in Colombia and against Joe Biden’s Castrochavista allies,” he added.

Lieutenant-Governor Jeanette Nuñez also criticized the move, saying, “There’s no such thing as a peace deal when you negotiate with terrorists. Removing the FARC from the U.S. list of foreign terrorist organizations not only undermines America’s interests and allies in the region but appeases despots like Maduro and Diaz-Canel.”
According to an exclusive
report from the Wall Street Journal, “The officials said the move could come no later than Nov. 30, coinciding with the five-year anniversary of the historic peace accord between then-President Juan Manuel Santos and rebels of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC. Negotiated with U.S. support, the agreement ended a 52-year-conflict and resulted in Mr. Santos winning the Nobel Peace Prize…”

“Colombian officials who spent four years negotiating with the FARC had been quietly pressing U.S. officials to drop the terrorist designation against the group,” the Wall Street Journal added. “By doing that, the U.S. recognizes the steps rebels took to transform their group into a political party, now called the Common People party, officials said.”

The news comes weeks after an Iranian-backed extremist group that Biden also removed from the U.S.’s list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations launched a missile attack on a mosque and a religions school that killed and injured 29 civilians.

The group, called Ansarallah, had been designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) by the Trump administration.

“If Ansarallah did not behave like a terrorist organization, we would not designate it as an FTO and SDGT,” Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo explained a statement.

“It has led a brutal campaign that has killed many people, continues to destabilize the region, and denies Yemenis a peaceful solution to the conflict in their country. Rather than distance itself from the Iranian regime, it has embraced the world’s leading state-sponsor of terrorism even more. Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has supplied Ansarallah with missiles, drones, and training, allowing the group to target airports and other critical infrastructure.”

Biden Not Planning To Visit Victims Of Black Supremacist Attack In Wisconsin

Published

Joe Biden

During Monday’s press briefing, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that President Joe Biden has no plans to visit the victims of the black supremacist attack on a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, that occurred last week after the announcement of the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict.

“Since the President said that this administration is monitoring the situation in Waukesha closely, it has been revealed by prosecutors that the assailant — the assailant swerved his truck side to side as part of an intentional act to run over as many people as possible,” a reporter said. “Six people are dead. Some children remain hospitalized.”

“Why hasn’t the President visited the members of this Christmas parade attack?” the reporter asked.

“Well, I would say first: As you saw the President convey last week, our hearts go out to this community, to the people in Waukesha; that we’ve been in touch, obviously, with officials there; and we’re all watching as people are recovering. And this is such a difficult time of year for this to happen. It’s a difficult anytime,” Psaki said. “Obviously, any President going to visit a community requires a lot of assets, requires taking their resources, and it’s not something that I have a trip previewed at this plan- — point in time, but we remain in touch with local officials. And certainly, our hearts are with the community as they’ve gone through such a difficult time.”

 

Last week, a man was accused of driving a red SUV through a Christmas parade in Wisconsin. The man had numerous posts on his social media expressing support for Black Lives Matter and “black nationalist rhetoric” along with disdain for Republican politicians and conservative media.

“A lone subject intentionally drove his maroon SUV through barricades into a crowd of people that was celebrating the Waukesha Christmas Parade which resulted in killing five individuals and injuring 48 additional individuals,” city police chief Dan Thompson said at a press conference. “I just received information that two of the 48 are children and they’re in critical condition.”

The online news outlet Heavy revealed that the suspect “posted anti-police rhetoric” and “black nationalist rhetoric” on social media. He also “posted a photoshopped fake image of former Republican Governor Scott Walker as a Nazi.”

One Twitter user posted a list of some of the suspect’s now-deleted Facebook posts, which showed extremist support for BLM.

The suspect also has a long criminal history, having “been charged with or convicted on an array of charges over the past 22 years, including battery, domestic violence, cocaine possession and resisting arrest in several jurisdictions in Wisconsin,” The New York Times reported. “He has served at least two jail sentences and spent years on probation and in court-mandated work-release and anger management programs.”

Biden Visited GM Factory After Company Paid $160,000 To Lobbyist Brother Of White House Aide

General Motors has paid Jeff Ricchetti nearly $200K to lobby White House and Congress

Democrat President Joe Biden visited an electric car factory operated by General Motors after the automaker paid nearly $160,000 to the brother of a White House staffer, according to a new report from The Washington Free Beacon.

The report states that lobbyist Jeff Ricchetti – who works as counselor to President Biden and was chief of staff from 2013-2017 for then-Vice President Biden – has received “$160,000 in payments from General Motors since President Joe Biden took office to lobby the White House and Congress on electric vehicle tax incentives, according to his firm’s lobbying disclosure forms.”

“The investment appears to have paid off—on Wednesday, Biden will attend the grand opening of the company’s new electric vehicle factory as part of his push for Congress to ‘approve big tax incentives for zero-emission vehicles,’ precisely what Ricchetti was paid to push for,” the report continued. “Ricchetti has cashed in on his family ties to the administration. Ricchetti has already brought in $2.4 million in lobbying fees this year, double his 2020 haul of $1.2 million, according to numbers compiled by OpenSecrets. Ethics experts have criticized the Biden administration for allowing Steve Ricchetti to work on issues his brother is being paid to lobby the administration on.”

Richard Painter, a former White House ethics chief and Democratic candidate for office, believes that “Steve Ricchetti ought to completely recuse himself from any part of the legislation that his brother’s firm is lobbying on, and then have the White House not take calls from his brother.”

General Motors reportedly paid Ricchetti’s firm, Ricchetti Incorporated, to lobby on “issues related to tax incentives for electric vehicles and charging stations,” “the availability of semiconductors,” and “climate policy that affect the automobile industry.”

The Washington Free Beacon noted, “Three of Steve Ricchetti’s children work in the Biden administration, prompting Politico to label Biden’s White House ‘the Ricchetti administration.’ Walter Shaub, White House ethics chief during the Obama administration, said the Biden administration’s decision to permit nepotism amounts to a ‘f— you’ to ethics experts.
