As Biden, Media Continue Attacks On DeSantis, New Report Shows Florida Had Third Lowest Cases In Country

Florida is following both the science and the constitution...and it's working.

Despite a constant onslaught by Joe Biden, the White House and his proxies in the mainstream media against Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, new data show Florida continue to excel not just in affording citizens freedom, but also with low COVID figures.

According to a chart published by The New York Times this week, Florida’s case rate per 100,000 people for the previous week was 13, placing it third only behind Connecticut and Hawaii, all of which have rates of 11 cases per 100,000. That means despite the false narrative in the media about Florida, 47 states in our Republic are worse off in terms of COVID cases.  It should be noted as well that most of those states ahead of Florida have succumbed to strict, draconian COVID restrictions and have lived in fear. Their result: More cases.

The 14-day change rate in Florida dropped 48 percent, while Alabama’s dropped 61 percent and Hawaii’s dropped 51 percent. States further north, in particular, were discovered at the opposite end of the spectrum, with rates rising 32 percent in Colorado, 27 percent in Vermont, 26 percent in Michigan, and 22 percent in Minnesota.

Just weeks ago Click Orlando noted, “As the number of new COVID-19 cases continues to drop in Florida, the state on Friday reported an average of 5,396 new cases per day over the last week. This is the fifth straight week the number of weekly COVID-19 cases has declined.

So while warm weather certainly is an aid to southern states, such as Florida, the fact remains that Florida has consistently demonstrated among the better numbers in the country, despite constant lies and fudging of figures by the mainstream media in order to punish DeSantis for going against their narrative of fear and compliance.

Moved from Rhode Island to Florida in 2004 and never looked back. I am embarrassed to even mention I ever came from such a loony state that would elect racist Whitehouse and pervert Cicilline. Needless to say, I am living the high life in Florida and loving every minute.

As to effect, I will repeat. It is not what you believe that matters. It is WHO you believe. Those who do NOT read your article will not be effected. And even those who do will only be influenced IF they believe you. Those who believed Adolf Hitler DID BELIEVE. They only woke up when they had been defeated.
So what will it take to defeat the LEFTIST?

  1. Revolution?
  2. The coming of Jesus Christ?

Most likely.

Just another reality the left will ignore in their headlong stampede to ruin America.

Lying and corrupt Creepy Joe and the lying and corrupt and BLIND media talking bad about Florida. Why doesn’t the media ask about the blatant Hunter corruption and about the continually moving target that covid is with corrupt and lying Fauci in charge? How much money went to China courtesy of Fauci for gain of function research? They are all scum!

Current “wokeness” prevents us from actually describing what these people are. I’ve had sites reject a post for making that kind of statement. I’m beginning to feel like “Coocoo’s Nest”.

The low percent numbers despite the large elderly population and being a mega tourist destination with large gatherings.

The entire Biden administration needs to be in Gitmo. I have never, in my long life, seen subterfuge like this anywhere except the Soviet Union and East Germany.
