Florida State Wide

Dear Friends,

It is a great day to live in the Free State of Florida! Thank you, Florida voters, for a record turnout in the 2022 General Election. Floridians overwhelmingly confirmed that we should continue to be the state that protects life, confirms parental rights, combats “wokeism” in schools and makes sure that our elections are secure and fair. Because of you, Florida will remain a stronghold for the Republican Party and serve has a beacon of liberty for the rest of the United States.

November’s election results in a super majority for the both the Florida House and Florida Senate. In total, the Florida Senate Republicans picked up four seats and now hold a 28-12 advantage. Incoming Senate President Kathleen Passidomo will be completely unimpeded as she rolls out a new agenda for the next two years. She has asked me to serve as her right hand as President Pro Tempore, which I have humbly accepted. This leadership team is working to do what is best for Florida families. Key among those is protecting things like faith, family, freedom, opportunity and life.

Nationally, Florida delivered four more seats to the Republican Party in the U.S. Congress. Depending on the outcome of a few outstanding elections (more on that below) in other states, Florida may have single handedly delivered a majority to Republicans in Washington D.C and ousted Nancy Pelosi as Speaker, once and for all!

Dear please help us,

How’s it going over there in the States? I hope you’re fine.

I am Mrs. Anna and Lucas from UKRAINE, my mother and I want you to help us move from UKRAINE to your country because after the explosion we lost all the members of our family, not to mention me and my elderly mother.

We have enough money to buy a house over there and you will also help us invest our family’s money in any good business of your choice that will bring us annual or monthly income.

All we need is your help and assistance to help us move forward and move to YOUR COUNTRY and you will be our only family because we don’t know anyone over there and my mother never wants to stay here in UKRAINE because she always remembers to she late children and her husband’s grandchildren, so she’s always heartbroken, that’s why we decided to move.

Contact me in my private email: xxxxxxxxxxx

Thank you,

Mrs. Anna and Lucas, UKRAINE.

Recently my wife received a phone call from a woman representing her as the office personnel of the electric company. She had my name and my wife’s name. She said she had a work order to shut our electricity off. We have a little farm out side of Dunnellon Florida. I am not sure what was said after that until she used the name Duke energy, we have Sumter Electric Co-op. My wife said we use SECO electric the woman quickly said well call your company and straighten this out and hung up.

Watch yourself on these kind of calls. You can panic and easily be taken advantage of, stay calm and think, don’t give them any information, call your power company or what ever they are threatening to turn off. Don’t use a phone number they give you. Look up your own phone number. Never give them your personal information.

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody has launched the One Pill Can Kill website with resources about the dangers of fentanyl. More and more, she says the opioid is being hidden in drugs like marijuana and cocaine, unbeknownst to the user.

“People need to know that just one pill laced with fentanyl is enough to kill a full grown adult,” Moody says in a video about the new website. “Fentanyl is now the leading cause of death for American adults between the ages of 18 and 45.”

Congresswoman Kat Cammack’s Legislation To Rename Middleburg VA Clinic “A.K. Baker VA Clinic” Passes U.S. House Of Representatives

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, S.2159, the bill to rename the VA Clinic in Middleburg, Florida after Andrew Kenneth Baker, unanimously passed the U.S. House of Representatives.

The bill passed the Senate earlier this year, and the legislation now heads to President Biden’s desk for a signature before the clinic’s name will be formally changed.

“It is so special to see this bill across the finish line during the 117th Congress,” said Cammack. “I worked on this project during my time as Deputy Chief of Staff for the district, and to see it finally pass both chambers and head to the president’s desk is an honor. I’ve come to know Ms. Tina Baker, Andrew’s widow, over the last decade, and it’s surreal to soon see her husband’s name in huge letters on the front of the building in Middleburg. His distinguished legacy will live on in the community that was such a huge part of who he was. Thank you to Senators Rubio and Scott and all of my Florida colleagues for your support of this effort.” Continue reading

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—Attorney General Ashley Moody is recognizing Utility Scam Awareness Day by issuing tips for Floridians to avoid utility scams. Fraudsters aiming to swindle consumers may pose as representatives of utility companies, and claim immediate payment is needed or the customer’s service will be cut off—or scammers may attempt to obtain personal information from an unsuspecting consumer. Attorney General Moody wants to ensure Floridians don’t fall victim to these schemes.

Attorney General Ashley Moody said, “Utility scammers will prey on the fear of losing an important service such as power or gas in order to elicit an immediate payment. Don’t fall for these imposter scams. If you receive a suspicious message or phone call, do not provide any personal or financial information. Instead, call the utility company directly and check on the status of your account.” Continue reading
