Fox35-WOFL Bullshit: Popular Lake County Christmas tree farm business harassed over mask policy

Poor Tom and Jodi Utsman. They own a Christmas tree farm in the central Florida town of Eustis. They also sell pumpkins in October.

Orlando’s WOFL-Fox 35 TV news reported on the insufferable “harassment” this couple has been receiving due to their business’s mask policy.

“It really has been quite heartbreaking,” said owner Jodi Utsman.“It’s really upsetting,” her husband, Tom Utsman said.

So, what’s going on? Are people calling them leaving them nasty phone messages? Throwing rocks through their windows? Running them off the road? Yelling at them at the supermarket? Well, no. Not exactly…

The Utsmans are getting such pushback on their mask requirement, they posted on Facebook about it.

“Basically, we don’t want to hide our policy. We are not trying to hide our policy and we want everybody to know we are serious about our policy,” Jodi explained.

It sounds like your potential customers are just as serious about NOT being your customers why why they are NOT being your customers. And they are using the outlet YOU have provided them to let you know that.

The couple says their employees have been wearing masks on the farm since March. So when they decided to reopen a few weeks ago, they wanted customers to do so as well.

“We’re in the middle of a fake pandemic! We’re all miserable. We’re making ourselves miserable and goddammit we’re going to make you miserable, too! Because we’re all in this together!”

“When the guest buys their tickets online, they tick a box that says they’re going to mask when they come and we were all quite comfortable with that,” Jodi said.

There are also signs posted at the entrance and throughout the farm. But despite the clear rules, the couple says people have been breaking them.

“We never thought we would have a problem with people coming in and defying us on purpose,” Tom told FOX 35 News.

“You vill obey! Ve have signs! Ve have signs, you vill follow dem!”

“We have a very young staff and sometimes they have to ask grown people over and over again to put their mask on,” Jodi said.

That’s a pretty stupid position to be putting your workers in. Even the big box stores are telling their staff to NOT confront their customers who choose not to follow the face diaper mandates.

The Utsmans say they’ve had families leave and been trashed in reviews but they’re sticking to their mask policy loud and clear.

Good. I would do the same thing. I wouldn’t spend my money in a business that fancied itself a sole-remaining extraterritorial possession of East Germany.

“We are not asking anyone to change their beliefs on masking. We are just asking you to stay home if you are going to come on your property and not wear a mask,” Jodi said.

Do your banker and your accountant know you are deliberately trying to destroy your business by telling potential customers to get lost?

Eustis is in Lake County, one of the lucky counties in Florida where there is no “mask order.” So customers have every right to enter the business. Furthermore, a business has no right to put a customer’s health and safety in danger by requiring them to wear a device which inhibits the free intake of oxygen.

The Utsmans are either too stupid or too oblivious to know that their customers are sending them a message: “We know it’s a hoax, we know the mask is useless and we’re not going along with it.

The customers are saying, “Hell, no! We’re NOT wearing a face diaper in hot, humid, tropical Florida weather.”

It has been estimated that over 100,000 small business have either gone bankrupt or otherwise never coming back since the lockdown / shutdown / crackdown which started in March, 2020. The Utsmans should be thanking God almighty that their little farm is still in business.

Instead, they choose to impose a tyrannical, unhealthy and – most importantly – unnecessary “mask order” on their paying customers. Customers who just want to go out for a day of family fun and leave this nonsense at home.

They should have taken a hint from their Facebook messages, recognized that this was a hoax and used the opportunity to market themselves as “mask-free.” Instead, they decided to whine to whatever Orlando corporate media outlet would listen. And a soft-news J-school graduate at Fox 35 picked it up and headed out with a minicam.

The Utsmans have a Facebook presence. It’s a two-way street. If they are lousy businesspeople, they are going to get pushback. If they don’t like that, they should stay off of Facebook.

Frankly, if they are this tone-deaf to the demands of their customers, then they don’t deserve to be in business in the first place.

Developers looking for cheap land should keep an eye on this situation. There will be a Christmas tree farm coming up for sale shortly if the Utsmans keep this up.

WKMG / Graham Media Bullshit: Channel 6 posts NFL Schedule; Commenters Say, “Who Cares?”

WKMG Channel 6, owned by Graham Media (formerly the Washington Post) and named for the late publisher Katharine Meyer Graham, is Orlando’s most liberal (now approaching Marxist) and thus lowest rated news television station. They are dumb enough to allow comments on all of their articles.

An article advertising the schedule for the upcoming National Felons’ League broadcast season brought out comments which were almost unanimously indifferent to anything NFL. Other than a comment that called out everybody else in favor of a boycott as racist (of course), and another that insisted that football was still popular (based on previous seasons; another comment called out), the rest of the commenters didn’t give a shit.

And these were just the comments that were allowed to stay up, or that weren’t shadow banned by users oblivious to the fact that their work is not being seen by others.

And the three top comments, in the opinion of your humble correspondent:

Obama Finds Another Son! Trey’von Graham Arrested In Orlando Mall Shooting

More proof emerged this week that President Barack Obama has spent decades sowing his wild oats across Florida when Orlando Police took Trey’von Graham into custody in relation to a shooting at a Mall food court in an upscale (i.e. white) neighborhood. 

While details still remain unclear, the general consensus is that somebody did something. Graham himself was heard hollering at reporters, “I din do nuttin’!” as he was thrown in the trunk of local congress critter Val Deming’s Crown Victoria. Prior to closing the trunk, Chief Orlando Rolon took a knee and offered his deepest apologies for the suffering and injustice that was occurring to Mr. Graham.

(WOFL-TV, Fox 35, Orlando)

At last report, “Commando” co-star Alyssa Milano and vice presidential candidate Kamela “Heels Up” Harris were seen rushing to Orlando bail out Trey’von.

George Zimmerman was unavailable for comment.


By Erik Sandoval and Andrienne Cutway, WKMG, Channel 6 TV, Orlando, October 8, 2020

ORLANDO, Fla. – A 19-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a shooting Thursday evening near the Mall at Millenia food court, police said.

Orlando police said Trey’von Jaheim Graham was arrested overnight on charges of attempted first-degree murder with a firearm and discharging a firearm in public.

Details about what led to the shooting have not been released.

Four people were taken into custody after the shooting, but their status is not known. Police said early Friday that no other suspects were being sought.

Questions to demand of bill collectors in this current bankster take-down

Like many other people across the United States and around the world, humble correspondent has been experiencing financial challenges since being put out of work in March.

I know when banks, credit card companies and bill collectors are calling, obviously. When I choose to answer, and after they give me their Miranda warning (this call is being recorded and this is an attempt to collect a debt), I respond by similarly warning them that the very fact that I answered means they will be dealt with harshly and with hostility and ask if they wish to continue.

One woman said, “I am going to terminate this call.”

Recently, in responding to a collection agency who had admitted purchasing a debt from another company, I wrote:

I hope you didn’t pay too much for this debt because until this country returns to normal, it isn’t getting paid. Our credit has been destroyed because of this planned-emic. We had stellar credit before this. 

I have just returned to work after being off since March. I am making half of what I was making before. After returning to work with a limited number of hours in July, (redacted) has now been furloughed entirely.

You can expect this account to be paid when all of the following happen:

a) All businesses in the state of Florida are allowed to open unrestricted

b) Democrat Population Centers cease to forbid their citizens from traveling to Florida

c) Walt Disney World reopens in full (and) Universal Studios reopens in full

e) (transportation company) returns to a full operating schedule

f) All “social distancing” and “mask orders” are repealed

If the above is unsatisfactory, I suggest you take the matter up with President Donald Trump, Governor Ron DeSantis, Orange County “Mayor” Jerry Demings and Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer. These four gentlemen are responsible for Melissa and I being out of work, and thus the original debt going unpaid. 

I would also add that, due to this ill-advised government policy which threw half the country out of work, our mortgage has gone mostly unpaid and is approximately $5,000 in arrears. We are now in forbearance until the end of December and THAT will be the priority.

Upon two million Floridians being rendered unemployed on St. Patrick’s Day, the unemployment system here collapsed. It took until June for me to get any money, and (redacted) didn’t receive any money until August. Not the whopping $275 state benefit, nor the $600 federal supplement. When checks did start arriving, the payment dates were unpredictable. We did NOT receive the back weeks between the time we applied and the time we received our first payments. This is a matter of public record which can be confirmed with a simple search engine new search. 

I can assure you that as soon as we are in a position, (redacted) or I will contact you and make arrangements to settle this account for an amount that works for both of us.

Until such time, you are requested to cease any further contact with (redacted), her employer, or anybody else in relation to this debt. Your continued harassment will not assist (redacted) in paying this account any quicker. 

If you do call, I assure you, you will be treated with the utmost hostility and non-cooperation. 

We did not ask for the rug to be pulled out from underneath us in the name of fighting a hoax “pandemic.” Had this not happened, we would not be in this position. 

(redacted) and I lived through the SARS outbreak in Toronto in 2003. At the time, the government of Canada brought in the CDC’s Dr. Julie Gerberding (later CDC director). Businesses remained open. ALL businesses. Restaurants. Hotel. All stores. Salons and barber shops. Tourist traps. NOBODY was ordered closed. Public transit continued to run as usual. I was a transit worker at the time. My train carried upwards of 3,000 commuters PER TRAIN at rush hour and we were FORBIDDEN from wearing masks. Suspected exposed people were quarantined at home. Sick people were treated. There were no B.S. “mask orders” and no “social distancing.” The whole thing was done and forgotten about in two months. So, having shared all of that with you, I have no hesitation in telling you that this situation is NOT our fault and is a gross – and I allege willful – overreaction on the part of our governing masters. 

You will recall that around March 17th, we were told the country would be shut down in order to save the lives of 2.2-million Americans and this would only be for “15 days to slow the spread” America has now been held hostage for 190 days. That’s over six months. 

Maybe if we’re really lucky, the whole scam will mysteriously disappear on the morning of November 4th. 

Finally, I would be interested in knowing how many people in your office have gone without a check since March?


Here in Florida, hundreds of thousands of workers are still out of a job due to the ongoing “pandemic” hoax. Since March, we have had to endure politicians, bureaucrats, public health tyrants, “entertainers” and other celebrities and “concerned citizens” telling us to stay home, wear a mask when we DO go out, and to avoid any “public places” or events.

Of all of these people, I have yet to find one who has missed a paycheck, gone without a meal, been threatened with utility disconnection, is facing homelessness, has had their credit destroyed or suffered any of the other consequences the rest of us have had to endure. On the contrary, they have benefited from empty roads and cheaper prices for consumer goods and housing.

In fact, the banks have benefited more than any other single industry. By “deferring” payments for a few months, they have maximized interest. As payments continue to be missed, they tack on late payment fees every month.

There is absolutely no down side to the banks regarding what the rest of us are facing.

There is no way Wall Street would ever allow the economy to be “shut down” unless they not only allowed it, but it was their idea and they didn’t think they would make a killing (literally) off the plan.

We are living through a massive economic bankster take down.

In Orlando, the lockdown duo of Demings & Demings continues to punish Democrat voters for not voting for them in high enough numbers

Valdez “Val” Demings is a congresswoman “representing” much of the city of Orlando, Florida as well as outlying areas including Walt Disney World. 

Must of Demings district was formerly held by Corrine Brown, also a Democrat, who was arrested and ultimately imprisoned in a charity fraud scheme. At the time, Brown’s district stretched 150 miles, encompassing Jacksonville and Orlando and connected by a narrow corridor in between. 

Demings was elected to congress in 2016, winning 65 per cent of the vote. In 2018, she won 75 per cent of the district primary and ran uncontested in the November mid-term election (

Prior to being elected to congress, Demings was chief of the Orlando Police Department and an officer before that. One of her claims to fame as police chief was losing her gun when it was left in her police truck, which was broken into in her own driveway. The incident happened in 2009. The gun was never recovered. (

Val’s husband, Jerry Demings is currently the mayor of Orange County (in Florida, the title of “mayor” exists for county executives, in addition to city heads). He was sheriff of Orange County – where Orlando resides – from 2009 to 2018, when he was elected mayor. Prior to being elected sheriff, Jerry Demings was Orlando police chief. Although elected as NPA (No Party Affiliation), he is a Democrat. 

Jerry Demings was elected mayor with over 61 per cent of the vote.

Residents of Orlando and Orange County have lived under a somewhat tenuous social contract. Generous Cash-for-life, stay-at-home welfare programs do not exist in Florida. This means the only option – short of collecting federal disability schemes – is to work. As a result, that work ALWAYS has to be available in order to prevent society from collapsing. 

The Orlando metropolitan area has a population of over 2-million. By official numbers, 17 per cent of Orlandoans work in the tourism business. Nearly 19 per cent of the area’s GDP is dependent on tourism. (

The top three tourism job centers are Walt Disney World, which, prior to the “pandemic,” employed over 77,000 directly and thousands more in contractor, vendor and other downstream jobs. Universal Studios and Sea World follow close behind as Orange County’s three major employers.

Those jobs are low paying and they have historically had the effect of suppressing wages across the area, even in non-tourist jobs. In 2017, the highest paying unionized job at Walt Disney World was a bus driver, with a starting wage of  a whopping $12 per hour. Disney has since gradually increased its wages and other local employers (including Universal) have followed suit. 

The shutdown, lockdown and crackdown prompted by the Chinese corona virus has had as much a catastrophic effect on Orlando as it has on the rest of the United States and the world. 

Congress critter Val Demings, a member of the house intelligence (sic) committee,  has had a particular disinterest in her voters since this emergency began. When the Wuhan Flu broke out in late 2019, rather than meet with President Trump and other elected officials, she was busy participating in the impeachment (attempted coup) of the President. 

However much Central Floridians may be struggling, the Demings don’t need to worry. Since Val went to congress in 2016, they have amassed a net worth in the millions of dollars despite earning combined salaries of less than $350,000 per year. 

As Governor Ron DeSantis’s ill-advised participation in the shutdown, lockdown and crackdown (which he at first resisted) resulted in the collapse of the state unemployment system as two million Floridians, hundreds of thousands of them in Orlando, were thrown out of work on an hour’s notice, Val Demings did NOTHING.

In fact, even today, Demings only interest – now that her dreams of being Vice President have been smashed – has been to introduce legislation which would allow homosexuals to donate blood. Her campaign website does not have an e-mail function, its telephone number leads to a “this mailbox is full” message and her congressional e-mail web form generates  a website error. Your humble correspondent has not noted a single Demings, nor Biden sign, anywhere in Orlando or Orange County. 

Jerry Demings, known locally as “Lockdown Jerry” has been just as enthusiastic about causing as much misery and destruction as Orlando’s city mayor Buddy Dwyer (also a Democrat elected as NPA). 

Jerry Demings ordered the closings off all of the parks (including Walt Disney World, Universal and Sea World), all bars, restaurants, hotels, all stores EXCEPT the “big box” stores, inside whose walls, apparently, the ‘Rona cannot survive). 

Florida’s Republican governor, Ron DeSantis, never imposed a state-wide mask “order.” Unfortunately, he chose to defer to municipalities (mostly controlled by Democrats) who imposed such orders with gusto. 

When Hillsborough County (Tampa) sheriff Chad Chronister ordered the arrest of a minister for holding church services, DeSantis issued an executive order forbidding the harassment of churches under the First Amendment. Similar orders were issued for the benefit of gun shops under the Second Amendment. 

All medical advice furnished to Jerry Demings and Dwyer has come from Orange County’s medical director, Raul Pina, a communist Cuban who graduated from the University of Havana’s medical school. As a doctor, Pina has never had a patient. The concept of American freedom and liberty is foreign (literally) to him. In the United States, he has made a career as a “public health” tyrant first in Connecticut and now in Florida. (

Jerry Demings dragged his feet and grudgingly approved the re-opening of the theme parks, but with the most restrictive restrictions, including significantly reduced admission and, of course, masks. 

Governor DeSantis knows he was had, even if he hasn’t admitted as much. In early September, he ordered every city and county in Florida to submit reports on local corona virus numbers, mask effectiveness and citations.

DeSantis may have been prompted by the admission by Orange County’s medical examiner that “97 to 98 per cent” of purported COVID deaths had significant underlying causes, including heart disease and advanced age.(

On September 25, Governor DeSantis banned municipalities from continuing to impose restaurant restrictions or impose any further mask citations. )

Sadly, DeSantis continued his tired pattern of not going nearly far enough in protecting Floridians and did not explicitly ban those mask orders from existing in the first place.

As a result, cities and counties across the state have ignored DeSantis and compelled businesses to require customers (or would-be customers) to wear masks at risk of their business operating license. This is an outright mutiny by municipalities and clear sabotaging and disobedience of DeSantis’s executive order.–mask-mandate-stands–orange-county-leaders-say

Thus, the farce of having to wear a mask at all times at a theme park (in tropical heat and humidity), while being allowed to remove it whilst eating and drinking – as if the virus cannot enter or exit you so while engaging in such actions so long as you were wearing the mask immediately before and after – continues.

The lockdown duo of Demings & Demings are operating under the premise that being the beneficiaries of the votes of hundreds of thousands low wage workers isn’t enough. The businesses that employ (or more accurately employed) these workers – business often also owned or operated by Democrats – must also be destroyed. 

The Fentanyl Floyd riots which swept the rest of the United States have not been allowed to happen in Orlando. Thus, the Demings Democrats must resort to extraordinary measures to suppress the local economy, cause massive unemployment, destruction of credit, bankruptcies, repossessions, utilities disconnections and homelessness in the “hopes” that people in such circumstances will blame President Trump and Governor DeSantis and, as a bonus, create Democrat dependency. 

The State of Florida’s resources are limited. It has no state income tax and is forbidden from running an operating deficit by state constitution. It also managed to run on half the budget of New York State which having twice the budget. A state welfare scheme in Florida is as unlikely as it is unwelcome. 

Governor DeSantis screwed up big-time by acceding to the shutdown / lockdown / crackdown. He should have joined South Dakota’s governor Kristi Noem in refusing  to allow this to happen in his state. DeSantis has since said his original decision was wrong and it will never happen again, but that doesn’t help us now. 

As Florida’s unemployment compensation system nears insolvency, DeSantis needs to recall the state legislature, which never felt the events of the past seven months unworthy of their attention; they have not reconvened since the session ended in March. 

The Orwellian-named Florida Department of Economic Opportunity’s “Re-employment Assistance” website,, is the ONLY means for unemployed Florida workers to not only apply for benefits, but to check-in and “claim” benefits every two weeks. 

And that website has made both applying and “claiming” benefits impossible due to limited connectivity and website errors. 

We need legislation in Florida which would forbid any municipality from continuing to sabotaging the FULL, unrestricted, UNMASKED re-opening and recovery of the state. This includes forbidding cities and counties from not only imposing mask orders but forbidding them from either compelling or allowing such businesses from requiring face coverings. 

The state must allow the unrestricted distribution of hydroxychloroquine and any other drug or treatment not just as it relates to corona virus, but any medical ailment. Medical treatment is between the patient and his or her doctor. The government doesn’t enter the picture. 

The state must forbid any discrimination against anyone who declines to accept a future “COVID” vaccine, or any vaccine. This includes discrimination by government, business and, yes, schools. ANY vaccine. 

As violence increases across the country leading up the general election in November, and as Democrats threaten violence long after the election, Governor DeSantis must sign an executive order which temporarily eliminates the need to obtain a conceal carry permit and the state house and senate must make that permanent by abolishing the need for such permits. 

The Governor’s office must set up a war room in order to push back against propaganda in corporate media which has portrayed Florida as a “COVID” death trap, despite the fact that Florida’s deaths (as suspicious as those numbers are) are less than half that of New York State’s (, with twice New York’s population, and despite thousands of elderly New Yorkers fleeing to Florida ( to avoid Andrew Cuomo’s death-sentence nursing homes.

Since Orlando’s theme parks opened in July, this War Room must make it known that nobody is even suspected to have gotten sick at a park, as well as at beaches and other tourist spots in Florida.

Florida’s governor and government must aggressively market Florida as a safe and welcoming reprieve from the oppressive public health tyranny taking place across the rest of the county. Florida IS safe, nobody is getting sick here who didn’t have other underlying issues (primarily advanced age), and eventually put an end to the COVID hoax.

Unfortunately, there has been only one politician in Florida pushing back against the unconstitutional mask orders: State Senator Anthony Sabatini (R), from suburban Orlando. ( )

Sabatini has been filing lawsuits against cities and counties across the state. Unfortunately, he has met up with Democrat judges who invariably cite a “public health” exemption in the state and federal constitution which apparently suspends the rest of the document. 

In the last legislative session, Sabatini introduced constitutional carry legislation which would have allowed Floridians to carry firearms (open and concealed) without a permit (or as he referred to it, a “permission slip.”  ( ). The bill was never advanced to a vote before the legislature adjourned in March. 

Incredibly, Florida is one of only four states – as well as the District of Criminals and the Virgin Islands – which forbid the open carrying of handguns (with or without a permit). 

As Anthony Sabatini is the only state politician who has not only pushed back against he mask orders, but recognizes our unalienable constitutional rights, perhaps he should running to primary and replace Ron DeSantis in 2022. 

As for Orlando, fortunately, voters in the Tenth Congressional District have an option on November 3rd (unlike in 2018). Vennia Francois ( ) won the district primary and will be opposing Val Demings. 


WKMG / Graham Media Bullshit: News 6 hosts Real Talk town hall on equality in schools

WKMG Channel 6, Orlando’s ultra-left and thus lowest-rated newscast, continues to stir the pot and race-bait in the run up to the November 3rd elections.

There is a noticeable absence in comments from both the regular leftist and conservative contributors, suggesting censorship and shadow banning has gone into overdrive.

Are even the leftists done with WKMG’s racist nonsense and thus being suppressed?

In the past, even leftist commenters have complained about being “content disabled” by Viafoura, WKMG’s Toronto-based “moderator,” that they have just given up even trying to comment. Which may well me the idea.

Bill Cosby’s Pound Cake Speech

In the old days, you couldn’t hooky school , because behind every drawn shade was an eye.

And before your mother got off the bus and into the house, she knew exactly where you had gone, who had gone into the house. Parents don’t know that today.

I’m talking about these people who cry when their son is standing there in an orange suit.

Where were you when he was two? Where were you when he was 12? Where were you when he was 18? And how come you didn’t know he had a pistol?

These are not…these are not political criminals. These are people going around stealing Coca-Cola. People getting shot in the back of the head over a piece of pound cake. 

And then we all run out. We’re outraged. “Oh, the cops. They shouldn’t have shot him!”

What the hell was he doing with the pound cake in his hand?

Brown vs. the Board of Education is no longer the white person’s problem. We’ve got to take the neighborhood back! 

We’ve got to go in there. It’s right around the corner! They’re standing on the corner. It can’t speak English! It doesn’t want to speak English! It’s that…I can’t even talk the way these people talk. 

“Why you ain’t where you is goin’ why is…”

I don’t know who these people are. And…and I blame the kid until I heard the mother talk. And then I heard the father talk. This is all in the house!

Everybody knows it’s important to speak English except these knuckleheads! 

You can’t land a plane with, “Why you ain’t where are…(scat)…” 

You can’t be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth. 

Why can’t you hit the streets? Why can’t you clean it out yourself? It’s out time now, Ladies and Gentlemen. It is our time. And I have good news for you. It’s not about money. It’s about you doing something that ordinarily we’d do: Get in somebody else’s business!

It’s time for you to not accept this language that these people are speaking, which will take them nowhere.

What the hell good is Brown vs the Board of Education if nobody wants it? I mean, this is the future. And all of these people who lined up and done whatever, they gotta be wondering, “What the hell happened?”

Brown vs. The Board of Education. These people who marched and were hit in the face with rocks and were punched in the face to get an education. And we got these knuckleheads walking around, don’t wanna learn English. 

When you go to the church, looked at the stained glass panes of Jesus. Look at ‘em. Is Jesus smiling? Not in one picture. So tell your friends. Let’s try and do something. Let’s make Jesus smile. Let’s start parenting. 

Thank you. Thank you. 

Remember when corporate media was telling us corona virus was nothing to worry about? Before the switch was flipped?

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Covering the coronavirus story requires careful navigation and constant attention.

News organizations trying to responsibly report on the growing health crisis are confronted with the task of conveying its seriousness without provoking panic, keeping up with a torrent of information while much remains a mystery and continually advising readers and viewers how to stay safe.

The coronavirus has sickened thousands, quarantined millions and sent financial markets reeling — all while some cultural critics say the story is overblown.

“It’s hard to tell people to put something into context and to calm down when the actions being taken in many cases are very strong or unprecedented,” said Glen Nowak, director of the Grady College Center for Health and Risk Communication at the University of Georgia.

“I keep reminding the viewers that still, based on two very large studies, the vast majority of people who get this infection are not going to get sick,” said Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s medical correspondent. “They’re going to have a mild illness, if any, and they’re going to recover. This tends to be very reassuring to people. But I don’t want to minimize this. We’re dealing with something that is growing and becoming a legitimate pandemic.”

“Pandemic” — defined by Webster’s as an outbreak that occurs over a wide geographic area and affects an exceptionally high proportion of the population — is one of the scary-sounding words and phrases that some journalists take care about using.

Fahey said the AP avoids calling it a “deadly” disease because, for most people, it isn’t. Dr. John Torres, medical correspondent at NBC News, edits out phrases like “horrific” or “catastrophic.”

Images, too, merit careful consideration. Pictures of people wearing face masks often illustrate stories, despite evidence that the masks matter little in transmission of the virus, Nowak said.

Sensational headlines can grab attention yet also unnecessarily frighten. An Atlantic magazine article last week was headlined “You’re Likely to Get the Coronavirus.”

Sensationalism actually tends to decline in these situations, said Peter Sandman, a consultant and expert in risk communication.

“Reporters love to sensationalize trivia or rare risks — think flesh-eating bacteria — to give their audience a vicarious thrill,” Sandman said. “But when risks get serious and widespread, media coverage gets sober.”

CNN’s Gupta has talked about people needing to consider “social distancing” if pockets of infection build in the United States. He has revealed on the air that his own house is stocked with supplies in case his family has to remain home for any period of time.

“People could be frightened by that,” Gupta conceded. “It’s not the intent. It’s in the way that you convey these things.”

The virus produces a seemingly endless supply of stories that stretch beyond the medical: Wall Street’s tumble, school and business closings, concert cancellations. The makers of Corona beer denied reports that the similarity of its name to the virus was hurting business. Italians are shying away from traditional kisses on the cheek. Churchgoers are nervous about handshake greetings of peace.

As is inevitable in divided times, the coronavirus has become a political issue in the United States, where commentators are weighing in on how President Donald Trump is reacting to the crisis. On Fox News, Donald Trump Jr. said of the Democrats: “For them to try to take a pandemic, and hope it comes here and kills millions of people so they can end Donald Trump’s streak of winning, is a new level of sickness.”

CNN’s Gupta said he tries to be wary of what politicians say about the coronavirus.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis needs to put an end to the destructive corona virus hoax NOW!

Why are we still dealing with this in Florida?

What was going on inside of DeSantis’s head when he decided that throwing millions of Floridians out of work, to be left to the mercy of an inadequate, and ultimately collapsed, unemployment system was a good idea?

Prior to March 15, we were told not to panic, not to wear a mask, “go to Chinatown” and everything would be fine. Then, “somebody” flipped the switch and caused this economic disaster. And DeSantis went right along with it.

The CDC has finally admitted that only six per cent of purported corona virus deaths were, in fact, a result of the virus itself. In a recent interview on Orlando’s Fox 35,the Orange County medical examiner admitted “97 to 98 per cent” of corona virus deaths had underlying causes such as heart disease and advanced age. The Associated Press tried to pass off the death of Annie Glenn, widow of late Keating Five senator John Glenn, as a COVID death “at age 100.”

Putting aside all of that, there is NOTHING, ZERO the government can do to stop nature. Government is lousy at everything. It is lousy at delivering mail, it is lousy at running trains, it is lousy at running public housing, it is lousy at running hospitals. And in Florida, it is certainly lousy at running unemployment compensation. Had “COVID” been left to run its course, as the CDC did in the case of SARS (another corona virus outbreak) in Toronto in 2003, it would have been forgotten about within two months. There were no masks in Toronto, no shutdowns, no lockdowns. Public transit, schools, restaurants, hotels, stores, salons, businesses of all sizes remained OPEN. The only people who were quarantined were those who were exposed. Sick people got treated.

We were soothed into this lockdown with the promise that it was “two weeks to slow the spread.” We were promised a $1,200 “stimulus.” Then politicians started talking about weekly unemployment supplements going to the end of July (JULY?!!!) and REGULAR monthly payments of the $1,200. Rush Limbaugh said everything would be done “two weeks at a time.” 

At the first sign that this was obviously political, DeSantis should have stepped in and put a stop to this crap. 

With regard to the face diapers, the very fact that a “mask” was any piece of cloth you can wrap around your face should have been a red alert that this was a hoax. Does anybody stop to ask how a “mask” is offering any protection when your glasses or sunglasses are fogging up in our tropical climate when you exhale?

The state legislature must be recalled and action must be taken to end this charade once and for all. This is clearly political. It has nothing to do with any public health concern, and everything to do with sabotaging President Trump and interfering with the election. 
Governor DeSantis must sign an executive order outlawing the mask orders, ending “social distancing,” re-opening the state IN FULL and ordering the suspension of the requirement to obtain a conceal carry permit until further notice due to the continued Soros-sponsored violence across the nation. The state house and senate must then back that action up with legislation which would forbid anything like this from ever happening again. 

We have millions of people across Florida who have been unemployed since March and are still unemployed or, at best under-employed. We can’t do anything about Democrat states such as New York sabotaging our economy by forbidding their citizens from traveling to Florida, but it is about time DeSantis showed leadership for once by stating that Florida is fully open for business, we are all getting back to work, there is no danger and all are welcome once again.
This NEVER should have been done. Governor DeSantis was a weak, pathetic RINO for allowing it to happen. It must end NOW!

Many Central Florida students returning to the classroom this semester will have to come to grips with the fact that their learning experience may not be the same as some of their peers.

Racial disparities show up in several ways in the academic setting, whether it be Black students receiving harsher punishments than that white counterparts, being less likely to be recommended for gifted programs or in some cases, they can be the victims of microaggressions that put a spotlight on their educator’s implicit bias.

Orlando’s most liberal, and thus lowest-rated television newsroom continues to stir the pot and foment a race war as Joe Biden and the Democrats collapse in support. And, “microaggressions?” Seriously?

They have adopted the Associated Press’s demand to capitalize the “b” in “black” while keeping the “w” in “white” lower case. Just to remind everybody how virtuous they really are.

With regard to blacks “being less likely to be recommended for gifted programs…” they might start by adopting standard American English, not ghetto ebonics.  Unfortunately, with the “mayor” of Orange County, Jerry Demings, and his congress critter wife, Val, held up as role models, it’s a tough sell given their own challenges with the English language.

Both these incidents happened in Orange County, where federally reported civil rights data from 2015, the most recent year available, shows that 53% of students who were expelled were Black , even though Black students only make up 26.5% of the district’s population.

Other statistics from that report include: Black students received 48.7% of in-school suspensions, 52.9% of out-of-school suspensions and 44% of referrals to law enforcement; Black  students missed 39,819 days of school due to being suspended compared to the 6,731 days white students missed and 53% of students who were expelled were Black.

Your humble correspondent recommends black parents, or even the youts themselves, turn off the gangster rap for just a moment and check out Bill Cosby’s Pound Cake speeches.

But these people, the ones up here in the balcony fought so hard. Looking at the incarcerated, these are not political criminals. These are people going around stealing Coca-Cola. People getting shot in the back of the head over a piece of pound cake! And then we all run out and are outraged, ‘The cops shouldn’t have shot him.’ What the hell was he doing with the pound cake in his hand? I wanted a piece of pound cake just as bad as anybody else, and I looked at it and I had no money. And something called parenting said, ‘If you get caught with it you’re going to embarrass your mother.’ Not ‘You’re going to get your butt kicked.’ No. ‘You’re going to embarrass your family.’

In the neighborhood that most of us grew up in, parenting is not going on. In the old days, you couldn’t hooky school because every drawn shade was an eye. And before your mother got off the bus and to the house, she knew exactly where you had gone, who had gone into the house, and where you got on whatever you had on and where you got it from. Parents don’t know that today.

When you want to clear your neighborhood out, first thing you do is go get the black Muslims, bean pies and all. And your neighborhood is then clear.

The police can’t do it.

I’m telling you Christians, what’s wrong with you? Why can’t you hit the streets? Why can’t you clean it out yourselves?

We are not Africans. Those people are not Africans; they don’t know a damned thing about Africa. With names like Shaniqua, Shaligua, Mohammed and all that crap and all of them are in jail.


It is worth noting that Cosby “got into trouble” with decades-old allegations not long after making those speeches.

Whether you believe or disbelieve the legal charges, he was absolutely correct about the subject matter of black personal responsibility.


Keep in mind that the numbers provided by the Department of Education’s Civil Rights Data Collection do not provide explanations as to why students were disciplined.

Well, you know, that’s kind of an important detail, isn’t it?

It isn’t a highly-publicized fact, but the only reason that Trayvon Martin was up in the Orlando area (Sanford) and not back home in Miami is because he was kicked out of school.

Those numbers show that on average across Orange County for the 2018-2019 academic year, the graduation rate for Black students was 71%, 81.5% for white students, 78.7% for Hispanic or Latino students, 97.9% for Asian students and 97.7% for biracial students.

This is not unique to Orlando or to Florida. This is a national problem. The education system is owned lock, stock and barrel by the teacher unions. It’s about time Florida, Texas or even Kansas broke up that monopoly and gave education back to the people. Put real people with real life experience in the classrooms.

Who would be better suited to handle a class full of gangbangers in training? A 20-something girl who just graduated from teacher college or a 25-year Marine combat veteran who has seen it all and done it all?

And on that subject, it’s time to un-retire the Board of Education.

The Board of Education

In a recent Instagram post, Educators for Justice described some of the ways anti-Blackness shows up in the classroom. That includes educators acting more patient with white students, telling Black students they aren’t going to succeed in life and ignoring students of color when they say they’re being discriminated against.

Another reason to get real people in the classroom. Businessmen who have succeeded in life and are ill-inclined to hear the insufferable “racism” crutch.

That same post, embedded above, also provided solutions to make classrooms more equal. Some of those remedies are as simple as providing black and brown shades in art supplies so students feel their skin tones are being represented, teaching students about Black authors and scientists who they can look up to and setting high expectations for Black students and encouraging them to meet those expectations.

So why don’t the school districts hire  authors and scientists to come into the classroom and impart their experience on a part-time basis?

As of September 1, 2020, 661 people have been killed by police. 242 of them white, only 123 of them black.

A&E as much as admitted a problem existed with black crime when it canceled its highly-rated “Live PD.” Most episodes of The First 48 feature black and hispanic murder victims and suspects. They also prominently feature black and hispanic detectives working to solve the case.

WKMG, its parent Graham Media (formerly The Washington Post) would be well advised to simmer down the race war they are trying to foment. It is a conflict they are not going to win. Unfortunately, here in Orlando, most crime happens in the “black” neighborhoods. Channel 6 does not report a lot of drive-by shootings in Doctor Philips and Winter Park. Pretending otherwise does not help anybody.
