Quarantine Arrest
A Florida couple on Key West that tested positive for the coronavirus was arrested for defying a quarantine order, local officials said Thursday.

Neighbors videotaped Jose Antonio Freire Interian and Yohana Anahi Gonzalez flouting the requirement and then handed the telltale tape over to the Key West police, authorities said.

“There were complaints from the neighborhood of them continuing to be outside, going about normal life functions,” Key West City Manager Greg Veliz told The Miami Herald. “An officer took the video to the judge and the judge signed the warrant.”

Interian, 24, and Gonzalez, 27, appear to be among the first people who have been jailed in Florida for breaking quarantine.

“As far as I know, these are the first arrests of this kind in Monroe County,” Brandie Peretz, a spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Health in Monroe County, told NBC News.

Word of their arrest came as Florida on Thursday reported a record 253 new coronavirus deaths, according to the latest NBC News tallyof coronavirus cases and fatalities. Nationwide, the death toll from a pandemic that Trump has claimed would "just disappear" rose overnight to 152,717, NBC News figures show.

The grim new Florida death toll number came on the heels of state health officials reporting 216 deaths on Wednesday and 186 deaths of Tuesday, both of which were new daily highs in a pandemic that has been hitting the state especially hard in recent months.  So far, Florida has logged a total of 456,105 cases and 6,586 deaths, according to state statistics.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a staunch ally of President Donald Trump, has been harshly criticized for his handling of the coronavirus crisis and stoked more anger earlier this month by referring to the rising case numbers as a “blip.”

And many Florida residents like Maria Bavaro of Lake Worth Beach are very angry. Bavaro told NBC News her 87-year-old father Antonio Franco was in an assisted living center when he died in May of COVID-19.

"I feel like we should’ve never put him there," Bavaro said of her dad, a hard-working Korean War veteran from Brooklyn who raised three daughters. "I feel like the government failed him. I feel like the state of Florida failed him.”


News Alert: T-RUMP Cancels Republican Convention Activities in Jacksonville 
President Donald Trump announced Thursday that there will not be Republican convention activities in Jacksonville, Florida. Events in Charlotte, North Carolina, will still be held. He said he will do an acceptance speech in a different form.  “ I  looked at my team and I said the timing for this event is not right. It's just not right," Trump said at the White House. “ To have a big convention,  it’s not the right time.”  What a crock of sh*t as usual…here is the TRUTH

😇  The Jacksonville City Council breathed a sigh of relief when notified. Who wants the aggravation and danger for four days… and normally conventions produce great profits for a city, but this would be a huge COVID-19 party and hopefully we can have those huge crowds at T-RUMPS hanging… for the misinformation and negligence which is resulting in estimated 200,000 deaths by October.  Even if he is responsible for 30% of those deaths he should be tried.

The Duval County Sheriff Mike Williams casted doubt on whether the Republican National Convention could be held safely. Williams said he had “ significant concerns with the viability of the event.”  A smart man,  the sheriff as we feel he realized he might need the Big Red One Army if the thing got out of hand with protestors.  
By then the protestors can/will/maybe armed as T-RUMP escalates the protests so he can send in the troops and look good…no he will look very bad… and those C
itizens of Florida breathed a sigh of relief.  We get enough bullsh*t from the Governor,  and GOP, a bunch that should have been hanged for bribes from the NRA while our kids die in shootings. here.


👺 Been There, Done That Stupid
A person familiar with the situation said that it may have made the President wary of getting stuck in another 
“ Sparsely attended event”, like two month’s ago bigly disappointing rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.   

Tulsa was a bust for T-RUMP, he led them down the path promising a million requests for tickets and only a little over 5200 showed and 12% got the virus and took it home with them, as spreaders, another lie that backfired… just like all the other lies… those participants infected their friends and family… no one will estimate how many are ill from the 500 spreaders.  

The usual average with tracing has been three for each positive but these yahoos came from all over, and then they become spreaders.  No masks, no excuses,  just some everyday stupid frickin people…who believe in lies…and go along with the bullsh*t out of ignorance… like the jerk in the picture… I wonder who paid for his sign… and if he was one of the twelve percent who became positive for attending….  And Herman Cain of Godfather Pizza Fame who ran for president in 2012 with his famous 99 formula attended Tulsa and died from COVID-19 7/31


👺  COVID -19 Update 7/31/2020  

For a third day in a row, Florida added a record-high number of coronavirus deaths with 252 announced on Thursday.

That brought the weekly death average up to 154 people dead a day, the highest it’s been since the start of the pandemic. Since March, 6,709 people in Florida have died from the virus, according to the Florida Department of Health.

The state also logged another 9,956 coronavirus cases, bringing the total to 461,379 infections. The positivity rate, or the percentage of positive test results among all tests processed, was 12 percent. The state also recorded 519 new hospitalizations.

Thursday was the second time, this week or ever, Florida has added more than 200 COVID-19 deaths in one day.



IS FLORIDA THE  WORST STATE FOR REPUBLICAN POLITICIANS

👺REPRESENTATIVE TED YOHO (CNN)  Big Mouth, Picks On Women, Can’t Apologize, Racist

Florida GOP Rep. Ted Yoho has resigned from the board of a Christian organization that works to fight hunger following his tense exchange with Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York.   He should resign from Congress, he’s a lowlife.

Chris Ford, the deputy director for strategic communications and campaigns of Bread for the World, on Saturday evening confirmed Yoho's resignation to CNN. The Florida congressman resigned on Friday during a meeting with the organization board, according to a statement from Bread for the World. 

"We believe that Rep. Ted Yoho's recent actions and words as reported in the media are not reflective of the ethical standards expected of members of our Board of Directors," the organization wrote in a statement.

“ The board sought his resignation as an action that reaffirms our commitment to coming alongside women and people of color, nationally and globally, as they continue to lead us to a more racially inclusive and equitable world.”

CNN has reached out to Yoho’s office for comment regarding his resignation from Bread for the World.
Yoho the Yahoo’s resignation comes after he was reportedly overheard calling Ocasio-Cortez a “F**king bitch.” 

EDITOR:  In return and fairness, you Yoho are not fit for service to the people of Florida and you certainly qualify as a genuine  F**cked-up moron using language you seem to understand.


👺SEN RICK SCOTT  Governor, Crook, Cheated Floridians And The Government And Got Off

Richard Lynn Scott is an American politician who is the junior United States senator from Florida since 2019. A member of the Republican Party, he was the 45th governor of Florida from 2011 to 2019.

Scott is a graduate of the University of Missouri, Kansas City and of Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law. In 1987, after serving in the United States Navy and becoming a law firm partner, he co-founded Columbia Hospital Corporation. Columbia later merged with another corporation to form Columbia/HCA, which eventually became the largest private for-profit health care company in the United States.

And the most crooked hospital group in the United States Scott was pressured to resign as chief executive of Columbia/HCA in 1997. 

During his tenure as chief executive, the company defrauded Medicare, Medicaid and other federal programs. The Department of Justice ultimately fined the company $1.7 billion in what was at the time the largest health care fraud settlement in US history.

Scott was not charged with a crime. Following his departure from Columbia/HCA, Scott became a venture capitalist and pursued other business interests.

In July 1997, Columbia/HCA Healthcare purchased a controlling interest in America's Health Network (AHN), the first 24-hour health care cable channel. They pulled out of the deal on the day of the closing because Scott and Vanderwater were terminated, which caused the immediate layoffs of more than 250 people in Orlando. Later that same year, Scott became majority owner of AHN.

In 1998, Scott and former Columbia/HCA Healthcare president David Vandewater led a group of investors who gave AHN a major infusion of cash so that the company could continue to operate. By early 1999, the network was available in 9.5 million American homes.

👺Scott has been a harsh critic of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, but in his 2018 Senate campaign stopped harshly criticizing the bill. In 2017, Scott said that individuals with preexisting conditions should be protected. In June 2018, when the T-RUMP administration sought to remove provisions of the Affordable Care Act protecting individuals with preexisting conditions, Scott declined to criticize the administration.  Scott said that he did not know enough about it to comment.

👺Scott has taken a number of positions on Medicaid expansion. For much of his first term as governor, Scott was against Medicaid expansion in Florida, saying it was too costly. In 2013, he came out in support of Medicaid expansion, and reiterated his support in 2014 when he was up for re-election. 👺 After getting re-elected, Scott reversed his position and adamantly fought against efforts by the Florida Senate to pass Medicaid expansion in 2015.

Scott has been accused of having fueled an HIV epidemic in the state while governor, by ensuring the state returned $54 million in unspent federal HIV-prevention grants and blocking $16 million in CDC grants to Miami-Dade and Broward counties.  👺The effect of this rejection of federal funds combined with Scott's stance on Medicaid expansion, has been described as "helping explain why the state’s HIV epidemic became almost peerlessly severe during Scott’s time in office", with the state accounting for 13% of the country's HIV diagnoses in 2017.

👺In the general election, Scott’s involvement in a large Medicare fraud case stirred controversy. He was guilty of falsifying almost two billion dollars.  Scott responded with ads accusing Nelson of having cut Medicare benefits and stolen from Medicare; fact-checkers found that both of Scott’s assertions were false.  During the campaign, Scott called Nelson a “socialist", an assertion PolitiFact described as "pants-on-fire" false.   During the campaign, Scott sought to avoid mentioning President T-RUMP and at times criticized or distanced himself from actions of the Trump administration, whereas in the past used his friendship with Trump to boost his profile and been an early and vocal supporter of Trump in 2016.  Trump endorsed Scott in his Senate bid.

The initial election results showed Scott leading Nelson by 12,562 votes, or 0.15% of the vote. Under Florida law, a manual recount is triggered if election results show a margin of less than 0.5% of the vote. Both candidates filed lawsuits in connection with the recount. Following the recount, Florida elections officials announced on November 18, 2018, that Scott had prevailed. 

Scott ran for governor of Florida in 2010. He defeated Bill McCollum in a vigorously contested Republican primary election, and then narrowly defeated Democratic nominee Alex Sink in the general election. Scott was re-elected in 2014, defeating former governor Charlie Crist. He was barred by term limits from running for re-election in 2018, and instead ran for the United States Senate that year. 

Scott won the 2018 Florida Senate election, defeating Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson. The initial election results were so close that they triggered a mandatory recount. The recount showed that Scott had won by 10,033 votes; Nelson then conceded the race. Scott took office following the expiration of his term as governor of Florida on January 8, 2019.
