    Surge Summary: Prominent Republicans are clapping back against Progressive dishonesty and those business interests that are throwing in with it. Meantime, the Mainstream Media seems intent on smearing Florida’s up-and-coming GOP Governor Ron DeSantis.

    Fighting Back

    Kudos to the Republican leaders who have spoken up and pushed back against the left-wing lies and big business bullies.  Here are a few examples:

    • Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell slammed the corporate virtue signaling, saying, “From election law to environmentalism to radical social agendas to the Second Amendment, parts of the private sector keep dabbling in and behaving like a woke parallel government. Corporations will invite serious consequences if they become a vehicle for far-left mobs to hijack our country.”
    • Senator Marco Rubio blasted Delta for doing business in China.  He also called on MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred to give up his membership at Georgia’s uber-exclusive Augusta National Golf Club, which hosts the Masters Tournament every year.
    • Texas Governor Greg Abbott declined to throw out the first pitch at the Texas Rangers’ opening game.  He slammed the MLB for adopting “a false narrative about Georgia’s election law reforms” and for allowing itself to be “influenced by partisan politics.”
    • Senators Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) are introducing legislation to strip Major League Baseball of its anti-trust exemption.
    • Sen. Tim Scott ripped Joe Biden and Delta, saying, “How can you distort the facts so terribly that you’re willing to bring back . . . the concept of Jim Crow? . . . We should tell the Delta CEO this by the way — if you need an ID to get on a plane, you should need an ID to vote.”

    Defaming DeSantis

    Big Media is clearly in the tank for the left.  If you needed more proof of the media’s bias, look no further than the disgusting attempt by 60 Minutes to defame Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

    They accused DeSantis of cronyism, alleging that he awarded a lucrative COVID vaccine contract to Publix, a popular grocery/drug store, in exchange for campaign donations.

    But the 60 Minutes hit piece didn’t work out so well.  The charge is completely false, and even Florida Democrats (here and here) are coming to the governor’s defense.

    The left just cannot accept the fact that conservative governors have handled the coronavirus pandemic better than progressive governors.  They are emotionally invested in defending New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Emmy award.

    Where is the 60 Minutes report on Andrew Cuomo’s nursing home scandal?  His vaccine nepotism scandal?   His sexual harassment scandals?  (A ninth woman has come forward now.)

    In fact, if 60 Minutes is really interested in a “pay-to-play” vaccine distribution scandal, it could start by investigating — you guessed it! — New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

    Some are suggesting that Gov. DeSantis should sue 60 Minutes.  It’s hard to sue the media.  But in this case, I agree.  This wasn’t a matter of merely bungling a few facts.  The sheer level of deliberate deception in this case is evidence of malicious intent.
