Brian Mast and his new bill to protect Environment

The federal government has played a big role perpetuating the recurring environmental and economic crises caused by Lake Okeechobee discharges, but they aren't taking responsibility for the damage caused to our community.  That's absolutely unacceptable.

This week I announced legislation to declare a federal emergency when the U.S. Army Corps causes damaging harmful algal blooms. Our bill, the Federal Do No Harm Act, provides federal assistance for disaster cleanup, including the removal of toxic algal biomass and muck from affected waterways.

This bill is just the first step and grew out of conversations that I've had for the last several months. Earlier this week, I traveled to Tallahassee to advocate for efforts to clean up Treasure Coast water. I also held a summit this week in Stuart with local environmental leaders to talk about how the federal government and state government can work together to achieve this goal.

Together, we can make progress for our community to strengthen our economy and protect our environment.

It is an honor to represent you in Congress.

Sincerely,

Brian Mast
United States Congressman

Peaceful Norway now has a Muslim Refugee problem


Bordered by Finland and Russia, Norway is the home of my maternal grandmother. It has the fourth-highest per capita income in the world on the World Bank and IMF lists and ranks first on the World Happiness Report. Wikipedia. They're not too happy now as they are experiencing radical Muslim refugees.

Norway is setting up border controls and even building a fence. Unlike radical American liberals, their people see the light.

After seeing increases in crime, vandalism, sexual assault, and the general destruction of society and civilization, it appears the Europe is finally figuring out what we’ve been saying all along: letting Muslim refugees unchecked into your country is a very, very bad idea. The Norwegian Police just released their annual threat assessment, and their findings are grim — they’re very worried that they’ll suffer an attack from ISIS, or ISIS sympathizers.

And our liberal courts are still blocking Trump's temporary travel ban.

The time to stop North Korea is now

How would you like to be Kim Jong-un tonight, knowing that the magic carpet ride is over and there ain’t a damned thing you can do about it? That sitting offshore is the the most powerful military force in the world and you are in the crosshairs? I would not wish that on anyone, except maybe an obese little troll who dresses like Dr. Evil. [PowderedWig Society]

Ugly Face of Socialism

Former Congressman Allen B. West talks about the ugly face of socialism in the nation of Venezuela. You might want to ask yourself if there is any other face that it has. West has personal knowledge of the great people of that nation, having learned tactics from one of their best officers. Here is a great synopsis of what has happened there, what happens in every socialist nation, and the hypocrisy of out liberal elites. This is well worth the reading. Thanks.

Hate - Liberal colleges thrive on it

TRUMP BEHEADED AT TAXPAYER-FUNDED UNIVERSITY

Try displaying this disturbing painting with Barack Obama as the subject instead of President Trump at any college, and the uproar from students, faculty and administrators would be immediate and furious.

But, no ... it's Trump. So it's "art" and "free-expression."

It's also something else, warns this former communist.
If you're a conservative, it's proof-positive the left wants you dead ...

9 Sanctuary Cities on Notice


"The Trump administration put nine of the country’s top sanctuary cities on notice Friday that they could soon have to give up some federal funds unless they can prove they are no longer thwarting Homeland Security’s efforts to deport illegal immigrants. The entire state of California is being targeted, as are the cities of New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Las Vegas, New Orleans and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Cook County in Illinois and Miami-Dade County in Florida round out the list., reports The Washington Times."

Unsure why Miami-Dade is still on the list as I thought that the Miami-Dade Mayor dropped sanctuary policy in January.

Crime Report for Lake Worth


What was supposed to be a 10 minute PBSO report dragged on for at about forty minutes. Every commissioner had questions of the captain. Some of the highlights of Cpt. Baer's report from Tuesday night's commission meeting:
  • Overall crime down in 2016 by 2.6%. No surprise on this as I had previously stated this would be the case. Not sure if jaywalking is a part of this stat.
  • 10 murders in year 2016--1 murder so far in 2017
  • No mention of the number of shootings which are weekly.
  • Aggravated assault up from 239 to 279
  • Drug overdoes way up and the most in March 2017 since July of last year
  • Property crime down by 5%
  • Vehicle theft down
  • Lots of prostitutes rounded up and two massage parlors raided--one on North Dixie and one near Propaganda nightclub on S. J Street

Maddow Madness

The brilliant blabbers at MSNBC have finally figured out Venezuela is in full meltdown.

It was predictable, of course, back when the late Hugo Chavez first put his nation on the road to the same socialist paradise that had already destroyed countless nations.

MSNBC was all in at the beginning, but now the network needs someone to blame -- preferably a Republican.

And that's where Rachel Maddow -- no stranger to meltdowns, herself -- comes in.

Medical Marijuana

"Two proposals to regulate Florida’s marijuana industry continue to weave their way through the halls of the Florida Capitol but there’s still a long way to go for lawmakers to reach any sort of agreement on how to move forward with medical pot in the Sunshine State."

One bill is much more restrictive proposal to regulate medical pot. That measure, HB 1397, sponsored by Rep. Ray Rodrigues, R-Estero, would ban smokeable marijuana as well as prohibit edibles and vaping. Oh, Dylan--what will you do?  You too, Dustin Zacks.
