Remember during the pandemic when the ‘authoritative’ news sources told us DeSantis was a black-hearted villain and Cuomo was a white knight charging in to save us?

Well, you can chalk up another ‘L’ for team Mainstream News.

They have yet another loss on their record as yet another story they pushed to discredit Desantis and hype the pandemic panic fell flat.

These clowns are really batting 1000, aren’t they?

Remember that ‘whistleblower’ who stepped forward claiming that the Governor was fudging the numbers on his COVID reporting? Rebekah Jones became an instant Democrat darling, despite a number of red flags popping up early on, punching holes in her story.

Back in May of 2020, we covered the story here: Media Touting Rebecka Jones, That Floridian Data ‘Whistleblower’, Just Got Some Bad News

We showed the holes in her story then. But the media isn’t interested in denouncing that as ‘misinformation’ or ‘disinformation’. You might think they’d care, since she has been, in the narrowest sense of the terms, ‘spreading false information about Covid data’.

She has parlayed that Democrat Darling status of hers into (what a surprise!) a political campaign. Here’s a screenshot from her campaign page.

Florida DOES deserve leaders with integrity, honesty, and courage.

Unfortunately for her, an investigation has disproved her claims. The implication of her running a campaign on disproven allegations would (ironically) be the precise diametrical OPPOSITE of ‘integrity, honesty, and courage’.

The Florida Department of Health’s Office of Inspector General found “insufficient” or no evidence that data scientist Rebekah Jones was told to manipulate or misrepresent pandemic numbers, NBC reported.

Jones, who ran Florida’s COVID-19 data dashboard, received national attention after accusing superiors of fudging data to bolster DeSantis’ case to ease restrictions.

Florida officials denied her charges from the outset.

…The investigation into her claims of data doctoring was handled by the Florida Department of Health’s Office of Chief Inspector General, Michael J. Bennett. —NYPost

Her Republican opponent is Matt Gaetz.

She objects to the investigation’s findings. Claims the results were rigged.

Perhaps she’ll find a way to tie Putin into her story next?

Or is it just a Vast Right Wing Conspiracy?

We have far better examples of ‘strong female leadership’ than this lightweight to offer the next generation. That was the entire point of Doug writing this book.

Biblical Badasses: The Women

In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
