Counter-terrorism expert George Buck launched a campaign last year in Florida’s 13th Congressional district to take out incumbent Charlie Crist, the former Republican governor who turned his back on his party and switched to Democrat. His momentum is building as he has emerged as the clear front-runner with the war chest to defeat the veteran incumbent.
Buck’s fundraising numbers indicate that he is the contender with the best shot to take out Crist in this November’s general election. FEC filings indicate that Buck raised $220,667.38 in the 4th quarter of 2019, and he raised in excess of $400,000 during the entire year. His money has largely come from a diverse pool of donors who are receptive to his “America First” message, which is an indicator that he will not owe favors to swampy special interests as a Congressman.
In his press release touting his strong fundraising numbers, Buck’s campaign boasts that he has received donations from 6,000 individuals – showing the depth of his grassroots support. Those same people giving money will be the army potentially powering him to victory in November against Crist.
“None of the donations were from swamp PACs or lobbyists, they came from average every day Americans and Floridians who want to take this country back,” Buck said.
“I am proud of that and I won’t let my donors and voters down. We are almost at half a million raised and this is the kind of fundraising prowess needed to defeat Turncoat Charlie Crist. Charlie has done nothing while in Congress other than vote to impeach President Trump during the sham witch hunt. I can do better,” he added.
Crist, who bills himself as a moderate voice within an increasingly polarized Congress, joined with the extremists in his party ranks and hopped on board the impeachment bandwagon against President Trump.
“No President, Republican or Democratic, is above the law. No President should be allowed to leverage our national security for their personal political benefit. No President should ask foreign governments to interfere in our elections. No President should obstruct Congress’ constitutionally mandated duty to provide oversight of the Executive Branch,” Crist wrote in his public statement in favor of impeachment.
“This is a sad, painful, and divisive situation for our nation. But impeachment is the direct result of the President’s own words and actions. And we have a duty to our Oath of Office and the Constitution to not stand silent,” he added.
Far from being a career politician, Buck has a history as a retired firefighter, emergency response expert, army veteran as a trained paratrooper, and he serves as president of the 101st Airborne Association in Florida. He currently leads his fellow Republican challengers, including Amanda Makki, Anna Luna, Sharon Newby, Matt Becker, and Shelia Griffin, in fundraising for the 13th District. The primary election is scheduled to take place on Aug. 18.
Democrat Black Farmers Bill Would Give Away $8 Billion of Land Yearly in Reparations Program
South Africa-style land redistribution?
Democrat Senators are touting new legislation that would purchase national farmland and give it away to Black Americans for free.
Democrats Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Elizabeth Warren are sponsoring the the Justice for Black Farmers Act, which seems likely to be the most wide-ranging affirmative action program ever enacted if it’s signed into law. It’s not inaccurate to call the bill a reparations program.

The law establishes preferences for Black Americans within Department of Agriculture policy. Blacks would be granted free land purchased by the federal government, in total increments that appear to add up to $8 billion a year.
An undersecretary of a USDA “Equitable Land Access Service” would be entrusted with purchasing(using taxpayer funds) and redistributing land. The reparation bill appropriates for a massive 20,000 grants annually over ten years, adding up to a total redistribution package of $80 billion.
The under-secretary would be commissioned to “(1) purchase from willing sellers, at a price not greater than fair market value, available agricultural land in the United States; and (2) subject to section 205, convey grants of that land to eligible Black individuals at no cost to the eligible Black individuals.”
If the bill redistributes 160 acres per grant, it would ultimately end up transferring 1.6% of the total land in the continental United States for free.
Democrats cite a decline in the numbers of black farmers since the 1920’s as an impetus for the bill, pointing out that there were 1 million black farmers in 1920 and 50,000 today. Such logic ignores that the number of American farmers broadly has declined sharply as the United States transitioned to an industrial economy, and that millions of Black Americans who worked under poor conditions as sharecroppers in the American South have long since moved to northern cities.
The bill is somewhat similar to South African racial land redistribution policies, which differ primarily in that they forcibly nationalized land owned by Afrikaner farmers and redistributed them to South African Blacks. South Africa’s land reforms in the name of “equity” have proven to generally be a failure, with novel farmers unable to utilize the land they’ve been gifted in a manner beneficial to society. South Africa has transitioned from a bountiful agricultural society known as the “bread basket of Africa” to a net food importer, with experts pointing to arbitrary land redistribution as a factor in doing so.
