Ahead of National Police Week, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is rolling out bonuses for his state’s first responders as Democrat-run cities across the country carry on with defunding police departments.
“Some want to defund the police, we’re funding the police and then some,” said DeSantis at a Wednesday afternoon press conference announcing the new benefit for first responders in his soon-to-be-signed state budget.

“I thought it was important to recognize the service, to recognize the sacrifice” of Florida first responders, explained DeSantis before announcing $1,000 bonuses for every sworn law enforcement officer, EMT, firefighter, and paramedic in the state.
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
