FL lawmaker working to rename major highway after President Trump

Published

on

As President Trump concludes his term in the White House, a Florida lawmaker is working to rename a highway in his honor. 

Anthony Sabatini, one of the most pro-America state legislators in the country, announced he submitted an amendment to an upcoming transportation bill in the Florida House calling to rename U.S. 27 after President Trump. 

“Looking forward to working on this important designation honoring one oft he greatest Presidents in American History,” Sabatini said in a tweet. 

The highway, which currently goes by the Purple Heart Memorial Highway or the Claude Pepper Memorial Highway, would retain its dedication to Purple Heart veterans, according to the amendment, Rogue Review reports. 

Sabatini submitted the amendment for two reasons: one, because Trump is the first Floridian to hold the presidency; and two, to update the highway from a congressional memorial to a presidential one. 

In an interview with the Orlando Sentinel on Wednesday, Sabatini explained why he chose U.S. 27. 

“It’s one of the most historic highways and one of the longest highways which goes through pretty much the whole state,” he said. “I just think it’s a pretty good choice.”

    Hopefully the highway will not provide signs with lies. and for sure the highway will have pot holes. Be sure to have security posted to avoid Trump’s supporters not to damage Georgia cars.

    Please tell Leo that I think he’s great. And that says a lot since he used to disgust me. Since he’s moved to support President Trump, he seems much happier and actually makes sense with what he says. Welcome to the light. He was in the dark for too long.

    I like the idea of naming a Hwy after President Trump, but maybe another Highway because I don’t want people to forget that it was named as the “Purple Heart” Highway on July 1, 2010 and I don’t see any markers up and down the Hwy, which is sad; I am a Veteran myself, a Veterans Advocate, in the Florida Veterans’ Hall of Fame and I am proudly married to a 2 PH recipient. Thank you.

    I don’t know about this particular highway. I live inn Washington State, was from California, please note the was. I think a highway named after him would be nice. I just think it may be too soon. There are so many people with raw emotions right now. I happen to think he did what he could in his presidency. I do believe he loves this country.
    There is not going to be unity as long as we have people who continue to hate him and continue to hurt and destroy him. Very sad.
    Hey Leo really enjoy seeing and listening to you.

    Oh hell no! Naming a dump site after him would be more appropriate after all he has done to the American people! What nerve!

    After everything that man has been through, and now seeing everything he warned us would happen when those cretins gained an office they should not be in for at minimum another 4 years, this feels like at least some vindication considering how little credit the man seems to get for pretty much anything.

    It’s about time Trump is getting credit for his work. He’s in fact the most peaceful president in history.

Biden’s Energy Secretary Violated Stock Disclosure Laws 9 Times Last Year

A spokeswoman for Granholm said that the late disclosures were the fault of a “clerical error”

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm sold shares of stock 9 times last year between April to October, but did not disclose the sales “within the legally required 45-day window, according to federal disclosure documents”, reports CNBC.

The shares of stock were worth up to $240,000. A spokeswoman for Granholm blamed a “clerical error” saying the secretary paid a late filing fee. Granholm did not file any of the 9 disclosures until December after legal deadlines for all had passed.

The STOCK Act has been in place since 2012, which “expanded the accountability and reporting requirements for financial holdings, both for members of Congress and high-level employees of the Executive Branch like Granholm” reports CNBC.

“The news of Granholm’s apparent violations comes at a time when stock sales by public officials and members of Congress are getting a fresh look” reports CNBC. “During the past week, several members of Congress, both Democrats and Republicans, have introduced or reintroduced legislation that would effectively ban lawmakers and their immediate family members from actively trading stocks while the member is in office.”

According to an analysis by Business Insider’s Dave Levinthal published earlier this month, a total of 54 members of Congress violated the STOCK Act rules just last year alone.

CNBC reports on the suspicious behavior of Granholm:

When President Joe Biden nominated her to be his energy secretary, Granholm signed a detailed Ethics Agreement in which she agreed to give up part-time jobs at the University of California and at CNN, step down from several boards, and sell millions of dollars worth of stock.

On March 22, she reported 23 stock sales, many of them blue-chip companies she had more than $10,000 of shares in.

A few months later in May, Granholm filed more transaction reports detailing how she had exercised stock options in the electric bus and battery company Proterra and then sold all her shares, worth between $1 million and $5 million, on May 24.

But in between the March blue chip sales and the May Proterra sale, Granholm made 6 of the 9 stock sales that didn’t get disclosed until December.

Trump Says Reports On A Conflict With DeSantis Are ‘Fake News’

Published

Ron DeSantis

During a Fox News interview on Thursday, former President Donald Trump shot down recent reports claiming that there were rising tensions between the former president and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, saying it was “fake news” and that DeSantis has “done a really terrific job in Florida.”

Trump’s comments came in response to an article from The New York Times claiming that Trump had a “long-stewing resentment” toward DeSantis.

“For months, former President Donald J. Trump has been grumbling quietly to friends and visitors to his Palm Beach mansion about a rival Republican power center in another Florida mansion, some 400 miles to the north,” The New York Times wrote. “Gov. Ron DeSantis, a man Mr. Trump believes he put on the map, has been acting far less like an acolyte and more like a future competitor, Mr. Trump complains. With his stock rising fast in the party, the governor has conspicuously refrained from saying he would stand aside if Mr. Trump runs for the Republican nomination for president in 2024.”

Hannity said that he was recently told that DeSantis does not think there has been “any conflict or bickering” between the two and that the report was “total BS” from the mainstream media.

“Is he right?” Hannity asked.

“Well, he is right,” Trump responded. “I get along great with Ron. Ron was very good on the Mueller hoax. He was right up front along with Jim Jordan, and all of the rest of them, they were fantastic. The Republicans really stuck together. And it was a great thing. And Ron was one of them. And Ron wanted to run and I endorsed him. And that helped him greatly.”

“And he went on and he’s done a really terrific job in Florida, and I think you know, Ron has been very good,” Trump continued. “He’s been a friend of mine for a long time. It’s totally fake news. I think Ron said last week, he said it very publicly, he says the press is never going to get in the middle of my friendship with Donald Trump, we’re not going to do that stuff. And he said it very strongly, I thought it was very interesting, actually. And very nice. But he said that, and I agree with him on that 100%. No, I have a very good relationship with Ron and intend to have it for a long time.”
