CBS Caught Red-Handed Editing GOP Governor’s Words to Make Him Look Bad (Details)

Another reason they can’t be trusted!

There is literally zero reason to trust the mainstream media, whatsoever. It’s sad that that’s the way it is now, but that is the way it is now.

The MSM has an agenda, which is to side with the left and push false narratives daily.

From The Daily Wire:

CBS’s “60 Minutes” deceptively edited an exchange that left-wing reporter Sharyn Alfonsi had with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) two weeks ago about the way the Sunshine State has rolled out its vaccination program.

In the clip, Alfonsi suggested that Publix, the largest grocery store chain in Florida, had engaged in a pay-to-play scheme with DeSantis where they donated money to his campaign in exchange for him awarding a contract to the grocery store chain to host vaccinations.

The following text, which was most of DeSantis’s response to the reporter, in BOLD, is what the network edited out…

Ron DeSantis: —that, that’s a fake narrative. So, first of all, when we did, the first pharmacies that had it were CVS and Walgreens. And they had a long term care mission. So they were going to the long term care facilities. They got vaccine in the middle of December, they started going to the long term care facilities the third week of December to do LTCs. So that was their mission. That was very important. And we trusted them to do that. As we got into January, we wanted to expand the distribution points. So yes, you had the counties, you had some drive through sites, you had hospitals that were doing a lot, but we wanted to get it into communities more. So we reached out to other retail pharmacies — Publix, Walmart — obviously CVS and Walgreens had to finish that mission. And we said, we’re going to use you as soon as you’re done with that. For the Publix, they were the first one to raise their hand, say they were ready to go. And you know what, we did it on a trial basis. I had three counties. I actually showed up that weekend and talked to seniors across four different Publix. How was the experience? Is this good? Should you think this is a way to go? And it was 100% positive. So we expanded it, and then folks liked it. And I can tell you, if you look at a place like Palm Beach County, they were kind of struggling at first in terms of the senior numbers. I went, I met with the county mayor. I met with the administrator. I met with all the folks in Palm Beach County, and I said, “Here’s some of the options: we can do more drive-through sites, we can give more to hospitals, we can do the Publix, we can do this.” They calculated that 90% of their seniors live within a mile and a half of a Publix. And they said, “We think that would be the easiest thing for our residents.” So, we did that, and what ended up happening was, you had 65 Publix in Palm Beach. Palm Beach is one of the biggest counties, one of the most elderly counties, we’ve done almost 75% of the seniors in Palm Beach, and the reason is because you have the strong retail footprint. So our way has been multifaceted. It has worked. And we’re also now very much expanding CVS and Walgreens, now that they’ve completed the long term care mission.

New Ultra-Woke ‘Monopoly’ Pits White Privilege against Race to Wipe Out White People and Capitalism

A new ultra-woke Monopoly-styled game called “Blacks & Whites” sends gamers into attacks on “white privilege.”

A new ultra-woke Monopoly-styled game called “Blacks & Whites” sends gamers into attacks on “white privilege” and gets them using race to destroy capitalism.

The game is an updated version o a 1970’s Monopoly ripoff that is being sold as the “Blacks & Whites: 50th Anniversary Edition.” The game’s description claims that race is “crucial to the player’s success in the game.”

The game purports to show that blacks can’t make it in the U.S.A. and the rules are stacked against black players.

According to The Blaze:

A Thursday report from Wired’s Sebastian Skov Andersen succinctly sums up the game: “a ‘socially conscious’ tabletop game about privilege and inequity in real estate and American society.”

Never Sad, the duo made up of made up of black comedian Nehemiah Markos and white comedian Jed Feiman, received permission from the original game’s creator, the late Dr. Robert Sommer.

Sommer, an internationally renowned professor and psychologist at the University of California-Davis, originally crafted the game because he was “struck by how unrealistic” Monopoly was, the Wired report explained.

“In Monopoly, everyone starts out with the same amount of money,” he previously said. “That certainly doesn’t fit the real world. … I decided to change the rules and introduce disadvantaged players.”

The game pushes its “white privilege” lies by giving white players a million dollars to start out with, but black players only get ten thousand. From there, black players find costs to be prohibitive while white players can spend at will and still come out ahead. Black players constantly face the threat of jail while white players succeed.

A recent ad for the game warns, “Watch out for greedy white people or you may go bankrupt!”

“Capitalism and racism are inextricable!” one of the players, portrayed by Markos, responds during the ad.

Sen. Marco Rubio Introduces Bill to Hold Corporations to Account for Leftist Woke Policies

Marco Rubio has introduced a bill that would hold leftist corporations accountable for interfering in the legislative actions of the states.

Published

Florida Senator Marco Rubio has introduced a bill that would hold leftist corporations accountable for interfering in the legislative actions of the states.

As Real Clear Politics’ Alfredo Ortiz explained, “In an effort to appease liberal lawmakers who threaten them with punitive regulations, corporations have increasingly been wading into divisive political issues to advocate for Democratic Party priorities.”

For instance, you had the NBA, NCAA, and other sports refusing to hold games in states that have enacted conservative laws. Or, in another example, many corporations banded together to enact economic warfare against the state of Georgia for enacting voting reform laws. The news is filled with examples like this.

Many Americans are getting sick and tired of these left-wingers abusing their economic power to push extremist, un-American, left-wing political causes on us, forcing us all to live by them no matter what we want, no matter who we elect, and no matter what laws we support.

But Rubio is looking for ways to eliminate these attacks on our country.

As Ortiz explains:

Entitled CEOs shouldn’t be allowed to run roughshod over the interests of their shareholders, who are often vulnerable retirees and ordinary Americans who depend on strong stock performances and dividends to maintain their quality of life. Keep in mind that around 43% of the stock market is owned by those aged 65 and older, and most middle-class families have savings in the stock market. In other words, companies’ woke politics don’t only risk the savings of hedge fund millionaires.

Sen. Rubio’s bill empowers shareholders to protect themselves from woke CEOs by eliminating barriers preventing them from suing companies for prioritizing politics over profits. The bill requires executives to justify their political actions with concrete rationale for how their moves help the business. No longer will companies be able to get away with political virtue signaling based on gauzy or generic claims that their political preferences are best for the company. Corporate executives will think twice before they enter the political fray to further their political ambitions.

The Mind Your Own Business Act marks a significant step in the growing wokelash. Given the widespread opposition to corporate political interference and the detrimental impact it has on ordinary Americans, it won’t be the last.

Exactly right.

It’s time to end this economic warfare.
