Has One Election Destroyed America Forever? The Sun Bay Paper Page 6 Folks, we are in a world of trouble !!! America has faced tough odds before. America beats impossible odds all the time. We are resilient and relentless. We are a nation of people who believe nothing is impossible. So, never count us out. There is always hope. But make no mistake: We are now in the fight of our lives. The odds may be worse than we have ever faced. Our nation is being destroyed from within. America is hanging by a thread. The attacks are relentless and ominous. The nation is divided like never before. You'd have to go back to the Civil War to find our nation this bitterly divided. Our borders are wide open, with millions of foreign invaders coming in each year. The bad countries of the world are emptying out their prisons to send their worst criminals to us. Refugees by the millions are bringing poverty, disease and violent crime; bloating our budgets; exploding our national debt; and destroying our education, health care and Social Security systems. Inflation is raging like never before in modern history. No one really knows how bad it will get. But the government is hiding the true level. More accurate measurements of inflation put us in the range of 15% to 20%. And it's only going to get worse. This has the potential to wipe out the great American middle class. If and when gas reaches $10 per gallon (or higher), the U.S. economy will be at the point of collapse. What working-class or middle-class person will be able to drive to work when it costs $200 or more to fill up one tank of gas? What will happen to the 3.5 million American truckers who each drive thousands of miles a week? If they can't get the food or goods to market, our nation collapses into "Mad Max" territory. It's every man and woman for themselves. And don't forget we have the worst employee shortage in history. No one wants to work anymore because President Joe Biden gives so much government welfare and bailout money away. And I haven't even gotten to the worst scenarios yet. But the point is, an election that I believe was rigged has changed everything. Think of America with former President Donald Trump in charge. We had perhaps the greatest and most prosperous economy in history; the highest increase in middle-class incomes ever; the lowest unemployment ever — including the lowest black and Latino unemployment ever; inflation and interest rates at historic lows; a perfect supply chain with a plethora of everything; and peace all over the world. But some Americans didn't like Trump's tweets. What would you give to have Trump back right about now? Everything is at risk now. America is a disaster now. All because we might have allowed Democrats to rig a presidential election with millions of mail-in ballots; no voter ID; little or no signature matching; plus an insane idea called "ballot harvesting" that used to be illegal in all 50 states; ballot drops in the middle of the night; ballots counted for days after the election until the desired result was achieved; and every Republican witness kicked out of the room while the votes were being counted in key battleground states. No evidence of a rigged election there, right? Now to the potential life-ordeath problems that we face because we may have allowed a rigged election...We face the real possibility of World War III with the Ukraine-Russia War. Are you ready to let your Sons and Daughters die over Ukraine? We face the real possibility of a nuclear war. We are closer than at any time in modern history. Even the U.N. announced that only days ago. We are about to sign the Iran treaty, the worst deal in world history, which hands nuclear weapons to the worst terrorist nation in the world. China is almost certain to invade Taiwan, which makes 95% of the crucial computer chips in the world. Without them we can't operate our computers, cellphones or cars. And then as a "bonus" we face financial collapse if we can't get enough oil to fill our gas tanks; if the Russian money we just banned from our system undermines credit markets and brings down our entire banking system; or if our dollar collapses as the "world reserve currency." These disasters are not only all on the table at this minute, but what if several converge at the same time? Our country, your life, your children's future could be gone, forever. Just like that. All because we allowed what may have been a rigged election in the United States of America. Who you gonna vote for in November? If you vote Democrat, you are officially suicidal. P.S. Let's Go Brandon. Wayne Allyn Root March 25, 2022 - March 31, 2022 The Biden administration last month rejected Florida’s request for assistance on behalf of mostly seniors living in Lee and Charlotte counties impacted by two tornadoes that hit in January. While the state appealed, it also launched an online portal and Gov. Ron DeSantis encouraged Floridians to donate to help. In less than one month, Floridians donated $1.1 million. Gov. Ron DeSantis and the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) on Friday distributed $430,000 to 43 households impacted by the tornadoes as a result of the generosity of Floridians. “While the federal government is still considering whether or not Floridians deserve assistance, we’ve been actively working to provide relief to these survivors,” DeSantis said. “This first round of checks, in addition to the other state programs we’ve made available, will help southwest Florida continue through the recovery process.” The state partnered with the Charlotte Community Foundation to collect and disburse donations for disaster survivors. “We hope that with this aid, in conjunction with local efforts, our neighbors begin to feel some sort of relief and restored faith in the humanitarian process,” Charlotte Community Foundation CEO Ashley Maher said. “Southwest Florida is full of compassionate and generous individuals who never turn their back to lending a hand to a neighbor in a need. Gov. DeSantis, FDEM, Volunteer Florida, the many groups that we’ve had the opportunity to work with, and the numerous donors, we thank you for allowing Southwest Florida to once again, stand together and for showing that when philanthropy is met with passion, there will always be hope.” The state continues to work with individuals who have requested assistance through the portal: FloridaDisaster.org/Assistance. All donations to the portal are tax deductible. Those seeking assistance can also request it through the same portal. “I’m incredibly proud of the progress we’ve made toward helping impacted residents recover from these tornadoes,” FDEM Director Kevin Guthrie said. “We still have more work to do, but the Division remains committed to coordinating assistance for these disaster survivors and ensuring they’re being connected with all available resources.” The funds raised through the portal are in addition to the $7.4 million made available by the Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) through the Community Service Block Grant (CSBG) and the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). Earlier this month, DEO announced $7.1 million was available in CSBG and LIHEAP funding. Since then, Lee County has received an additional $300,000 in CSBG funding to address additional unmet needs. This is in addition to the more than $2 million DeSantis said was available through the State Housing Initiative Program (SHIP). Homeowners whose properties sustained damage directly related to the Jan. 16 tornadoes are encouraged to contact their local SHIP office for assistance.
