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.

Reporters Want Answers on Biden’s Persistent Cough Which Consistently Interrupts Briefings

Published

on

Joe Biden

On Thursday, President Joe Biden’s persistent cough, which forced him to pause and clear his throat several times, has the public concerned. The noticeable coughing fit occurred during a speech about tax hikes. Soon after, reporters questioned White House press secretary Jen Psaki about Biden’s health.

NBC News reporter Kelly O’Donnell addressed the matter head-on. “Many of us were in the East Room watching the president, we’ve seen him on many occasions where he had a repeated cough. What is the situation with that cough and is it a concern?”

Psaki snapped back, “It’s not a concern.” She added, “We have a doctor who travels with him, obviously who checks in if it is ever warranted, and certainly that continues to be the case, as it has been since the beginning of his presidency.”

O’Donnell followed up, “Is there an explanation for why he coughs so frequently in situations like that?” Psaki again downplayed the concern, responding, “I don’t think it’s an issue of concern. I think there is a range of reasons why we may need to clear our throat or we may have a little light cold, and that’s certainly something that presidents, elected officials, reporters, spokespeople can confront.”

There is only so much longer the White House can ignore the pressing concern. Even #Bidencough became a popular social media hashtag. In Thursday’s same briefing, Psaki was asked about when Biden would receive a full physical examination, as his mental acuity has been called into question for years.

“I know this is an understandable question. I don’t have an update. He will get one soon. And when he does, we will make sure you all are aware of it and get the information,” Psaki condescendingly responded.

The New York Post reports the recent times Biden’s cough has been problematic:

After he coughed and was hoarse while speaking in December after the Electoral College confirmed his victory in the 2020 election, aides said he was suffering from a slight cold.

More recently, the president hacked at several points during a speech Monday in California in support of Gov. Gavin Newsom in the recall election, causing him to apologize and even pause to take a sip of water.

During the presidential campaign, his doctor, Kevin O’Connor, told the Wall Street Journal that Biden is fit to serve as president, but also noted that he is being treated for high cholesterol, acid reflux disease and seasonal allergies.

Acid reflux often forces him to clear his throat, O’Connor said.

“This may also contribute to occasional cough and sinus congestion,” O’Connor wrote in a medical statement. “He has received an endoscopy to rule out any more significant disease.”

Clinton Campaign Attorney Indicted For Lying To FBI In Trump-Russia Investigation

Published

on

Hillary Clinton

An attorney who represented Hillary Clinton’s most recent failed presidential campaign in 2016 was indicted on Thursday for allegedly lying to FBI officials, as part of U.S. Special Counsel John Durham’s probe into the origins of the FBI’s investigation of supposed ties between Russia and former President Donald Trump’s campaign.

“Michael Sussmann, a partner with Perkins Coie who also represented the Democratic National Committee in connection with Russia’s hack of the organization, is accused of making false statements during a Sept. 19, 2016 meeting with former FBI General Counsel James Baker,” Reuters reported. “This marks the second criminal case Durham has filed so far since former Attorney General William Barr tapped him in 2019 to investigate U.S. officials who probed the Trump-Russia contacts.”

According to the New York Times, Biden administration Attorney General Merrick B. Garland has the authority to overrule Durham but declined to.
“Donald J. Trump and his supporters have long accused Democrats and Perkins Coie — whose political law group, a division separate from Mr. Sussmann’s, represented the party and the Hillary Clinton campaign — of seeking to stoke unfair suspicions about Mr. Trump’s purported ties to Russia,” the New York Times
reported. “The case against Mr. Sussmann centers on the question of who his client was when he conveyed certain suspicions about Mr. Trump and Russia to the F.B.I. in September 2016. Among other things, investigators have examined whether Mr. Sussmann was secretly working for the Clinton campaign — which he denies.”

“According to the indictment, Sussmann ‘lied about the capacity in which he was providing the allegations to the FBI’ when he met one-on-one with FBI General Counsel James Baker,” the Daily Mail explained. “That prompted to Baker to assume he was acting merely as a ‘good citizen’ rather than as a ‘paid advocate or political operative.’ He stated falsely that he was not doing the work ‘for my client,’ according to the indictment. Sussmann had handed over three ‘white papers’ as well as computer files containing evidence of the reported secret channel.”
