Cruise Line Tells FL Gov. DeSantis to ‘Give it Up’ in Vaccine Passport Fight

The feud is heating up.

Published

on

There has been a battle brewing in the Sunshine State as of late, and it’s only getting more intense as the weeks wear on.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has drawn a line in the sand, no pun intended, decreeing that no businesses within the state can require their customers to prove their vaccination status.  Pushback on this over came almost immediately from the cruise industry, whose voyages have always been breeding grounds for viral villains.

Norwegian Cruise Lines, in particular, has had a problem with this, and successfully litigated their way into being allowed to require immunization information from their passengers.  DeSantis is appealing that ruling, and the cruise line is absolutely perplexed by that.

Norwegian Cruise Lines (NCLH) resumed operations for the first time in 18 months Sunday, with a 100% vaccination mandate for all guests and staff.

CEO Frank Del Rio told Yahoo Finance he is hoping other companies follow suit, and says it’s a failure of leadership in the country to not have a similar vaccine mandate nationwide.

“Our leadership has failed us,” Del Rio said.

“Can you imagine if 700,000 people died of anything other than covid, the outrage that there would be, what government would do to stop that? And this government, whether we’re talking about local, state or federal — and I’m not talking Republicans, I’m not talking Democrats, I’m talking government,” Del Rio said.

Then came their dig against the governor:

The company scored a win in a legal battle with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who banned vaccine passports back in April. The cruise line won in federal court, but now faces an appeal.

“It’s beyond bizarre. It’s shameful,” Del Rio said.

“I mean, come on, give it up. This is a pandemic we are talking about, people are dying every day, Florida now is the epicenter of the epicenter. What does it take for common sense to rule?” he added.

This won’t likely sit well with DeSantis, who has been unafraid of speaking out against those companies and individuals who would impinge upon his vision for the freedom of Florida.

Trump Drops Brutal Truth Bomb About Biden’s Border ‘Invasion’

BOOM!

Published

on

There is little doubt that the situation on the southern border of the United States is untenable, catastrophic, and simply sad.

The election of Joe Biden had predictably attracted a massive surge of migrants to the border, as a perceived leniency toward immigration reform almost always comes with Democratic administrations.

To make matter worse, Biden’s choice to appoint Vice President Kamala Harris to the position of Border Czar has been an unmitigated mess, with Harris deciding that she’s rather work on climate change, calling it a “root cause” of illegal immigration.

During a raucous Saturday night rally in Georgia, former President Donald Trump absolutely obliterated the Biden border fiasco.

“Joe Biden has thrown the border wide open and our country is being invaded by hundreds of thousands of people every single month. Every month we have hundreds of thousands of people coming and we don’t even see the people that are really coming in, and I guarantee you they’re the worst of all. “

And then:

“The world is coming into our country. They’re emptying their prisons into our country. I used to say from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Mexico, but now it’s from many countries all over the world including the Middle East. They’re emptying their prisons into our country. We’re having people coming into our country that we do not want.”

Biden has been busy lamenting the tactics used by Border Patrol during this unprecedented surge, and taking some guff from federal law enforcement in the process.

Lindsey Graham Makes Major Statement Regarding Trump’s Potential 2024 Run

We did NOT see that coming!

Published

Lindsey Graham

Donald Trump isn’t always the easiest guy to get along with, politically, but that was kind of the point all along.

You see, Trump was elected in 2016 as a disruptor; as the guy who would arrive in Washington and tear down the walls of political pomp, and instill a sense of urgency back to the White House.  It was never going to be a smooth course to sail, but a great many Americans felt that this turbulence was going to be necessary.

Of course, for those that have been a part of Washington’s political machinations for years weren’t always on-board with Trump’s maneuvering, and plenty of on-again, off-again squabbles did occur.

Senator Lindsey Graham was one of those who butted heads with No. 45 on a semi-regular basis, but it does seem as though he’s coming around to the idea of getting Trump back into the White House.

​Sen. Lindsey Graham told a gathering of Republicans that he hopes former President Donald Trump runs in 2024.

“I don’t think Trump is listening. He might be. I hope President Trump runs again,” Graham (R-SC) said at a leadership conference for Michigan’s Republican Party on Saturday, according to the Detroit News.

The former President does appear to be strongly considering it.

Trump, who has been coy about whether he would throw his hat in the ring, came the closest to acknowledging a run in an interview on Friday.

He was asked by David Brody of Real America’s Voice Network if he could name a reason he wouldn’t.

“Well, I guess a bad call from a doctor or something, right?” Trump replied. “I will say, that happens with people.”

“So things happen, through God, they happen,” Trump added. “But you know, I feel so good, and I hate what’s happening to our country.”

Trump and Graham have quarreled a fair bit over the course of the last few years, with their latest spat having taken place not more than a week ago.
