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.

‘Every Word Of This Is False’: Ted Cruz Factchecks Ilhan Omar’s Attack On Coach Kennedy Prayer Case

Published

on

Rep. Ilhan Omar

On Monday night, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) factchecked Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after she made multiple false claims about the Supreme Court ruling in Kennedy v. Bremerton School District, in which the Court ruled 6-3 that a public high school football coach in Washington state had his First Amendment rights violated when he was punished by his school district for praying on the field after games where students could see.

As previously reported, “In 2008, high school football coach Joseph Kennedy began a tradition of praying at midfield after each game. Over time, his players and even members of the opposing team began to join him. In September 2015, a school administrator addressed the matter with Kennedy after an opposing team complained and the coach briefly stopped his prayers.”

“On October 14, 2015, Kennedy told the school district that he was planning on resuming his prayer tradition at the next game. The school district told the coach that his prayers violated the district’s policy, but Kennedy continued to pray at the next two games. The school district subsequently placed him on administrative leave, banned him from participating in the football program, and refused to renew his contract for the following season. Kennedy took the issue to federal district court, arguing that the school district had violated his First Amendment rights,” the report added.

In response to the Supreme Court ruling in favor of Kennedy, Omar tweeted, “The Supreme Court just ruled that public school teachers can pressure students to join in prayer at public school events but can also retaliate against those that don’t join in. Religious freedom is dead in America.”

“Every word of this is false,” Cruz responded.

Omar’s claim that the Supreme Court’s decision allowed to teachers to “pressure students to join prayer” is false. The Court’s ruling just protected Coach Kennedy’s religious freedom to pray publicly.

Omar was also incorrect in claiming that there would be retaliation against students who did not join Kennedy in prayer – the coach’s tradition of praying after games began with him praying alone at midfield after football games. Kennedy’s school district even noted that Kennedy had “not actively encouraged, or required, participation.”

Additionally, in contrast to Omar’s claim that “religious freedom is dead in America,” the Supreme Court ruling actually strengthened protections of religious freedom.

Writing for the majority opinion, Justice Neil Gorsuch explained, “Respect for religious expressions is indispensable to life in a free and diverse Republic—whether those expressions take place in a sanctuary or on a field, and whether they manifest through the spoken word or a bowed head.”

“Here, a government entity sought to punish an individual for engaging in a brief, quiet, personal religious observance doubly protected by the Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment,” Gorsuch added. “And the only meaningful justification the government offered for its reprisal rested on a mistaken view that it had a duty to ferret out and suppress religious observances even as it allows comparable secular speech. The Constitution neither mandates nor tolerates that kind of discrimination. Mr. Kennedy is entitled to summary judgment on his First Amendment claims.”
