Florida Senate Permanently Removes Scott Israel As Broward County Sheriff

Israel briefly became a mouthpiece against gun rights before facing skepticism over his performance as sheriff.

The controversial former sheriff of Broward County, Scott Israel, was permanently removed from his position as sheriff by the Florida Senate on Wednesday.

Israel was removed in a 25-15 vote. He had already been suspended from his position by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. His removal by the Senate is final and ensures the beleaguered sheriff will have no chance to continue in office.

Democrats mostly voted along party lines to reinstate Israel, while Florida Republicans voted to permanently remove him.

Sheriff Israel became the target of criticism after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in February 2018. One of his Broward County Deputies assigned as a school resource officer, Scot Peterson, declined to respond to an active shooter in an incident where 17 students were killed by a homicidal gunman. Peterson is currently facing criminal charges for his neglect of his duties as a police officer.

After the shooting, Sheriff Israel briefly became a vocal critic of the Second Amendment and gun rights. Israel criticized the NRA and demanded an “assault weapons” ban in a CNN town hall.

When the failure of his agency to even attempt to respond to the massacre was revealed to the public, Floridians were outraged by the outspoken sheriff’s conduct. Furious citizens designated the Broward County Sheriff’s Department under his leadership “Cowards of Broward.” DeSantis pledged to use the governor’s powers to remove him from office during his 2018 campaign.

In a statement, Governor DeSantis heralded the legislature’s removal of Israel from office. “I hope the outcome provides some measure of relief to the Parkland families that have been doggedly pursuing accountability.

Israel claims he’s going to run for the office of Broward County Sheriff in 2020 once again, despite his removal from office. He slammed the removal process as a “political sham” after the vote on Wednesday.

Cuomo #MeToo Hoax Distracts From Real COVID-19 Nursing Home Deaths Scandal

This is the old bait and switch.

Published

on

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is in the process of getting #metoo’d, and it may be the best thing that has ever happened to him.

Before a bunch of female accusers came out with accusations of impropriety in a seemingly coordinated fashion, Cuomo was under fire for his murderous policies of housing COVID-19 patients in nursing homes with the elderly, vulnerable and infirmed.

Big League Politics has reported on the Cuomo genocide in New York as the scandal has unfolded:

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo hid data on the impact of his nursing home quarantine policy to avert scrutiny from federal investigators. Cuomo had forced New York nursing homes to admit patients who were COVID-positive, in a medical disaster since determined to have unnecessarily cost the lives of thousands of senior citizens in the state.

The New York Post reported that a Cuomo aide admitted as such as Democratic New York state legislators on Thursday. Secretary to the Governor Melissa DeRosa admitted that resarch related to the nursing home policy was spiked directly in response to criticism of the policy on the part of President Donald Trump.

“He starts tweeting that we killed everyone in nursing homes,” DeRosa said of Trump, referencing presidential tweets questioning the nursing home policy in August. “He starts going after [New Jersey Gov. Phil] Murphy, starts going after [California Gov. Gavin] Newsom, starts going after [Michigan Gov.] Gretchen Whitmer.”

“Then we were in a position where we weren’t sure if what we were going to give to the Department of Justice, or what we give to you guys, what we start saying, was going to be used against us while we weren’t sure if there was going to be an investigation.”

A Queens Democrat assemblyman described DeRosa’s remarks as no less than revealing an attempt to avert federal scrutiny, preventing New York’s policy makers from learning of the deadly ramifications of the nursing home policy in the process.

“[it’s] like they admitted that they were trying to dodge having any incriminating evidence that might put the administration or the [Health Department] in further trouble with the Department of Justice,” said Ron Kim.

It’s all but impossible the Department of Justice will investigate the nursing home policy now that Joe Biden is President. Some have speculated that the policy cost New York as many as 10,000 lives, nearly half the deaths in the state with the most COVID-19 deaths in the nation.

After this scandal broke, these women – in fashion similar to Brett Kavanaugh and other #metoo hoaxes – emerged at the same time to get the focus off of Cuomo’s killings and put it onto his alleged sexual lasciviousness. This is very convenient, and those other Democrat governors who implemented similar policies may be breathing a sigh of relief as a result.

Commentators on the Left and Right have commented on the breathtaking idiocy of this entire media-contrived crisis:

Conservatives would be wise to stop taking the bait from the fake news media and running with their narratives that only reinforce cancel culture while detracting from the actual issues that matter.
