Biden told the press before calling Governor DeSantis of Florida was “irresponsible” for opening up when other states were locked down. Biden objected to Florida opening up last September.
“What do you have to have to have these industries back up? You have to have people from New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Minneapolis, you’ve got to have people from the Midwest, you’ve got to have people come down and want to go to those parks, right? Well guess what? They are not coming now because of your governor’s irresponsibility.”
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Senator Marco Rubio publicly stated that the Biden administration for reportedly considering a domestic travel ban on the state, calling the threat “unconstitutional” and a “political attack” on Floridians. DeSantis said: “Any attempt to restrict by the federal government would be an attack on our state done purely for political purposes,” DeSantis said at a press conference Thursday, February 12, 2021.
According to Michael Baxter, there was a phone call where Biden and Fauci, who is appearing in World Economic Forum promotional videos for the Great Reset, were threatening now to shut down the entire country using travel bans following the lead from Boris Johnson or Spain where you need government permission to move from one town to the next. Biden is threatening the Republican States and demanding they lockdown. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was on a conference call with Biden and Fauci where Biden said he would prohibit domestic travel to and from Florida because it would not lockdown. DeSantis did not take any shit from Biden who claimed he had the authority to “restrict movement” of the people. There is absolutely nothing in the Constitution that given such authority and it is a First Amendment right to freedom of movement.
Biden claims he might have to prohibit vehicle and air traffic until the CDC and NIH were confident that currently available vaccinations had a proven efficacy against emerging strains, such as highly transmissible anomalies from the United Kingdom, Brazil, and South Africa. In other words, he is threatening to shut down the entire economy of the United States by executive order for a claimed disease with a kill ratio of 0.028% destroying jobs, food production, and distribution. This is total insanity!
Dr. Fauci and acting CDC Director Rochelle Walensky, both supported this action and told DeSantis that surging cases in Florida threatened to undermine the federal government’s expansive efforts to mitigate spread across the country. Walensky argued that no state has the authority to resist a federally mandated travel ban.
Biden then added that DeSantis left Florida’s economy open during “the dark days of Covid.” Yet the cases here were less than in New York. Moreover, Biden claimed he had unilateral and constitutional authority to protect the nation’s health from “rogue politicians” acting in contravention of established health guidelines. DeSantis replied: “I will not comply.” He said that Biden was targeting Republican states that supported Donald Trump.
“Florida absolutely will not comply,” DeSantis repeated. “Instituting a travel ban or restriction of movement would be a gross example of federal overreach with no grounding in law or science. We have Covid-19 in check, and you’re trying to exert unlawful authority over our state and its people.”
Biden then tacitly threatened to withhold federal funding and to deny Florida access to Covid-19 vaccinations. DeSantis said: “How much do you stand to earn from these vaccines, Dr. Fauci? And, Joe, if you continue with this course of action, I will authorize the state National Guard to protect the movement of Floridians.” Biden responded: “Address me as Mr. President or President Biden.” DeSantis bluntly said: “I will not, and you can go fuck yourself.” DeSantis then hung up.
Joe Biden is not acting as the President of the nation. He thinks he is a dictator and he will destroy the US economy just like Boris Johnson.
Politico, the left-wing news propaganda, reported that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Thursday lashed out at the Biden administration, promising that the state would strongly and swiftly oppose any attempts to block Americans from traveling to the Sunshine State. DeSantis’ comments were in response to a Wednesday story by McClatchy that quoted an unnamed White House official saying the administration was considering imposing domestic travel restrictions, including on Florida, to stem the transmission of a new Covid-19 variant that is rapidly spreading in the state. DeSantis, a Republican, called consideration of travel restrictions “absurd” and a “political attack on the people of Florida.” He said it would be “ridiculous” to impose curbs on domestic travel while relaxing restrictions on the U.S.-Mexico border.
The White House responds — White House press secretary Jen Psaki addressed the idea of domestic travel considerations at a briefing after DeSantis spoke. “We are always considering what steps are necessary to keep the American people safe, but we are not currently in the process of, no decisions have been made around additional public health measures that would delay or would change, I should say, domestic travel considerations,” Psaki said.
Secession is starting to look very good! This is why they have built the Nancy Pelosi Wall in DC. They could care less about illegal aliens, it’s the Americans they are afraid of. There are not trying to pass legislation to make Nancy’s Wall – PERMANENT!
