"No," DeSantis began. "What I have said is 'I'm willing to take it but I am not the priority.'"
"I'm 45, so the people under 45 are not going to be first in line for this."
The governor said that when it is his turn to take the vaccine he will. But DeSantis wants seniors, people like his parents and grandparents, to be first in line for the vaccine.
"Granted, I'm an elected official but whoop dee do," DeSantis added. "At the end of the day, let's focus where the risk is."
The governor's selflessness over the vaccine is in sharp contrast to that of progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who cut in front of the line to get vaccinated before the elderly and the vulnerable. It was too much for even her fellow "Squad" member, Rep. Ilhan Omar (R-MN), to bear.

Election Fraud Legal Team Wants to Present ‘Specific Evidence’ on Jan. 6
By Pamela Geller / THE GELLER REPORT
President Donald Trump’s campaign adviser said the team is aiming to present evidence during a potential congressional debate on Jan. 6 if lawmakers in the House and Senate object to states’ Electoral College votes.
As of Wednesday, it appears that at least one member of the Senate, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), and a number of House lawmakers will object to the electoral votes during the Joint Session of Congress. Hawley announced he would object to the electoral vote, pointing to previous Democratic efforts to do so during the 2004 and 2016 presidential elections. After the objection, an hours-long debate will occur.
Miller said that evidence could be presented in Congress, which would differ from what the Trump campaign presented in courts over the past several weeks.

What If I Were to Tell You COVID Cases Would Be Declining Nationally If Not For One State
Matt Vespa / Townhall Tipsheet
Both New York and California have become the Mecca and Medina for this virus. New York, by far, has a higher death rate and the number of infections than the red state outbreaks that the media tries to pass off as similar in size and scope. It’s not. For starters, in most red states, their COVID outbreaks are part of a first wave that never touched them back in the spring. At the same time, that doesn’t mean as a governor you don’t force facilities housing those who are most susceptible to die from COVID to accept such patients, which led to the deaths of thousands of people. Almost half of all COVID deaths in the US come from nursing homes.
Radical Stacey Abrams’ Sister Blocks Georgia Officials From Removing 4,000 Voters From Rolls Before Election
By Pamela Geller / THE GELLER REPORT
The judge, Leslie Abrams Gardner, is the sister of former Dem candidate for governor in Georgia Stacy Abrams.
“I believe that each of the individuals named as a result of registering their name and change of address to a location outside of Muscogee County, removed to another state with the intention of making the new state their residence,” a local voter named Ralph Russell who made the challenge said.
“Thus, each individual has lost their residence in Muscogee County, and consequently, each individual is ineligible to vote in Muscogee County.”

2020 Will Go Down as the 'Year Socialism Went Mainstream,' Haley Says Leah Barkoukis / Townhall Tipsheet
“The dangerous ideology, which has failed everywhere it has been tried & ruined countless lives, is on its way to becoming the default economic policy of the Democratic Party," she said on Twitter. "This terrifying trend threatens the future of every American.”
She followed up by noting that a lesson that can be learned from 2020 is that when “government dictates how the economy is run, Americans suffer.”
With an incoming Biden administration, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations said “now is the time to renew the fight for capitalism.”
Haley linked to an article from Stand for America, an advocacy group she founded, titled, “2020 in Review: Socialism Rising.”

22,685 Trump Votes MISSING In Cambria County, PA
By Javier Caceres / THE GELLER REPORT
Cambria County PA’s website for Trump, while Biden’s is perfect
Last time the CAMBRIA County reported votes was on Wednesday Nov. 11th 2020 at 21:50:46, ( 9:50 p.m. ) as you will see in the numbers from spreadsheet below taken from the data download with the detail of the County’s 125 Precincts
Thanks to Edward Solomon I downloaded the raw data available and just worked with Cambria County ( Download at https://gofile.io/d/qZcQl6 ) ; placed the data in an Excel spreadsheet and ordered the data by date and time and took the accumulated votes for the 125 precincts from the last time available and then compared it with the data at the Cambria County PA’s website. (For each reporting time you will find in the original data download the 125 precincts accumulated total for each candidate )
If you add up the votes from the last reported time the votes were: Trump 70,777 and Biden 21,749.
The Fat Lady Hasn't Yet Sung By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots / Right Side Patriots Radio
“fraud in this election. I don’t have any doubt about that there was
fraud.” - Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.)
He's tried every recourse available and yet he still failed what with the Supreme Court blocking the seemingly last legal pathway he and his lawyers took to try and right a grievous election wrong...an election not only stolen from him but from “We the People” as well. And know I am rightfully speaking of who should now be second-term elected President Donald J. Trump.
So as our president moves forward from both the Supreme Court's decision and from the Electoral College fiasco, he is now focusing on January 6th when Vice President Mike Pence will preside over the official tallying and certifying of the electoral votes, with conceding before then thankfully appearing not to be an option. And while many believe this attempt will also fail, what with congressional RINOs and Democrats surely refusing to go along with any and all who try to overturn this fraud-ridden election, it must be remembered that said election, if certified, will see a what would then be President Joe Biden soon being replaced (25th Amendment anyone) by the ever vile Kamala Harris, thus assuring America-hating Barack HUSSEIN Obama of his much coveted...but Constitutionally denied...third term in office.
And yet no matter the odds against him, President Trump has a constitutional right to try and overturn this fraud-gotten election result...an election replete with all sorts of now proven mail-in ballot fraud, Election Day fraud, and deliberate tabulation machine tampering. So while it's been said that we voters should not suffer for the “misdeeds of a few bad actors,” and that for fraud or irregularities to render any presidential election invalid that the problems would have to be countrywide, the fact is that overall fraud did become the hallmark of this election no matter the Democrats continuous squawks to the contrary. And if in the end the Democrats are allowed to steal the presidency know that “We the People” will see, on the first day of the Biden administration, many of the freedoms we now take for granted slowly being stripped away...and it will begin, I'm sure, with their trying to do away with the all-important Second Amendment.
Now a little 3-point side note before we get into a few specifics regarding what appears to be the only viable option for victory left to President Trump. Point one... know that with the multitude of evidence gathered not only by President Trump's legal team but independent attorneys as well, coupled with both statements and testimony given by actual witnesses to overt voter and election fraud having been committed, we now see a number of states actually sending competing “slates of delegates” to Washington.
Point two...it's here where Mike Pence’s foremost
“lawful duty” as vice president comes into play as he can
legally instruct states to "expeditiously send" and
have arrive before the January 6th deadline “accurate”
certificates....with “accurate” being the
key word...especially since Republicans in both Pennsylvania and
Arizona have, as I write this, already asked Congress not to accept
the votes assigned by their respective Secretary of States, as they do
believe said certificates are not “accurate” and that they
represent “fraudulent election results.”
But more importantly is point three for it means that if Mike Pence were to order those electoral votes already cast to be disqualified, as is his right to do, it then would allow state legislatures to flex their Constitutional given muscle, if you will, by appointing Electoral College votes as they themselves see fit. And this is especially true what with the SCOTUS not even addressing this particular touch-point issue when they declined to hear the recent Texas case.
A side note of interest to say the very least.
Now as for the certification specifics pertaining to this election is the fact that the official certifying of the electoral vote is something, thankfully, that has not yet happened. And whether the Democrats like it or not the election count is not official nor is Joe Biden officially the president-elect until Congress certifies said election as per federal law...federal law as in Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution along with Amendment 12, and also as per the Electoral Count Act of 1887 (codified in Title 3 of the United States Code)...which specifies the exact procedures that must be followed when both certifying and challenging the validity of the Electoral College vote.
And so on January 6, 2021, at exactly 1:00 pm EST, Vice President Mike Pence, in his capacity as President of the Senate, will stand in the House chamber before a Joint Session of Congress, and will open, in alphabetical order, the Electoral College vote envelopes from each state. Then he will pass said votes to four “ tellers”...two from the House (with House “tellers” being appointed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi) and two from the Senate...who will announce the results. At the end of the count, Vice President Mike Pence will officially announce the name of the next President of these United States...that is if all goes without objection, which hopefully it will not.
Forgotten or not known by many is the fact that during the Joint Session members of Congress may object, as per 3 U.S.C. §15, to either individual electoral votes or to state returns as a whole (even if it's not the objectors home state), with said objection having to be declared in writing and be signed by at least one Representative and by one Senator.
And if there is even one objection (in fact, as I write this, Alabama Congressman Mo Brooks has already stated that he will challenge the electoral results as will Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Rep. Paul Gosar (AZ), newly-elected Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) with others expected to join in; and on the Senate side Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and newly elected Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) also will do so) the Joint Session goes into immediate recess with each chamber then considering the objection separately in a session that lasts no more than two hours. And in this session each member “shall state clearly and concisely, and without argument, the ground thereof” for their objection...as in presenting their case... for no more than five minutes. Then each “teller” votes on whether or not to accept the objection in question, the Joint Session reconvenes, and both chambers announce their decision.
And while on the surface all the above seems to be a fairly logical, easy, and a no nonsense way of handling any such objections, not to be forgotten is that the Electoral Count Act of 1887 itself actually allows for members of Congress to not only object to a state’s aforementioned electoral vote whether it be the collective or a singular vote, but to object to the actual delegate or delegates, as in the person or persons who actually cast said votes. And this is possibly something that could also happen due to what we know is the fraudulent nature of this election.
But if all runs smoothly and any objection raised results in a split decision, meaning the House “tellers” voted one way and the Senate “tellers” voted the other way, the objection fails and the votes are counted as they were originally cast; but if all agree to the objection the votes in question are not counted, with the electoral count continuing on from there. And if either candidate then gets to the 270 majority number needed, only then is said candidate officially declared the presidential winner. But if during the resumed Joint Session no candidate reaches the 270 number, the presidential vote then goes to the House of Representatives where each state gets to cast one vote, with the vice presidency then being voted upon in the Senate. And if this happens the possibility of a split ticket becomes more likely, because Vice President Mike Pence would then cast the “yea or nay” deciding vote on Kamala Harris' fate.
And it's at the House and Senate level where President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence could, against all odds, pull off a “Hail Mary” election win for there are, much to the Democrats chagrin, more red states than there are blue states. But one also needs to remember that the Electoral College vote has indeed been challenged in the past...(as in 1969 and again in 2000...the year of the infamous “hanging chads” which saw Richard M. Nixon and George W. Bush elected president respectively)...but were challenges with the result being that both the House and Senate rejected the electoral objections, thus leaving the votes in question to be counted.
So with any election of course being all about numbers garnered, it's also important to remember that the 2020 ballot saw not only the president and vice president positions up for vote, but also on the ballot was each and every House member and more than a third of the Senate. And the fact is that any election disputes regarding the presidency itself...for example disputes regarding mail-in ballot fraud, tabulation fixing, and illegal ballot extension delays...will also impact congressional races which in turn can affect how Congress, if needed, finalizes as per federal law their selection of a new president. And this scenario will indeed play on January 6th what with the SCOTUS throwing out Texas' lawsuit on what basically was a technicality while outright refusing to listen to the case...a case based more importantly on merit and evidence collected...technicalities be damned.
So as January 6th fast approaches for what will likely be President Trump's last stand, the grounds needed for Congress to reject the Electoral College vote still revolve around proving that widespread election fraud took place. And while the Democrats and their media cohorts claim that November's election was “the most secure in history”...claimed while crossing their fingers behind their backs of course...claims of election and/or voter fraud are not unique to this election and have indeed happened in the past, and on occasion have resulted in wins for the plaintiff.
For example, claims of voter fraud happened in my home state of Florida where in 1998 a Florida judge “voided in full” the all-important Miami mayoral election and ordered a new vote, citing “a pattern of fraudulent, intentional and criminal conduct” in the casting of “absentee ballots.” And in May of this year in Paterson, N.J., a judge “recommended” a “do-over election” for a seat on the 3rd ward's City Council after overwhelming evidence surfaced that “widespread” tampering with “mail-in ballots” had occurred. Sounds quite familiar now doesn't it, but here the judges did the right thing and because they did all was settled at the state court level while this election's proven cases of election fraud went nowhere.
In fact, they went nowhere because they were thrown out in the battleground states state court level as well as at the Supreme Court level...thrown out without the judges or justices even bothering to hear the cases or seeing the evidence that was waiting to be presented.
Gives new meaning, I'd say, to the words, “Houston we have a problem here...”
So what exactly needs to be done so that dirty Democrat politicians don't get away with corrupting both our election system and our Republic itself by stealing an election even they know they did not legitimately win?
Simply, the election must go to the House for there President Trump will win. And this mean that on January 6th the Republicans must emphatically object to the electoral votes from several other states besides just the four key battleground states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Georgia. In fact, the many revelations garnered from the December 16th Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing regarding voting "irregularities" and "disinformation"...saw Chairman Ron Johnson and Sen. Rand Paul (rightfully) insisting that Trump's state cases were thrown out on "procedural grounds" alone and not on their "merits"...can also be used as another reason for objecting to the electoral vote.
And while there's always an outside chance that the SCOTUS could at the "eleventh hour" step into the fray what with their having (somewhat) laid out how a different plaintiff might succeed where the Texas interstate constitutional case failed, the
truth as to how they would again rule remains uncertain thanks to the loyalties of Chief Justice Roberts always being in question.
But know that Trump can still win, because it ain't quite over yet as not only has the “fat lady” not sung, but never underestimate President Donald J. Trump for the “Master of the Deal” might well still have something unexpected up his proverbial sleeve. And with that I say case closed.

You Can Kill Covid With a Flick of a Light Switch, Study Shows
By Pamela Geller / THE GELLER REPORT
Ultraviolet LED lights kill coronavirus quickly, efficiently and cheaply — but don’t go stringing purple lights all over your home.
As the world continues to race toward a vaccine for Covid-19, new Israeli research shows that the humble light bulb could become a major player in the fight against the pandemic.
In a study recently published in the Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology B: Biology researchers found the optimal wavelength for killing the coronavirus is 267 nanometers.
President Trump Signs Coronavirus Relief Bill With $600 Stimulus Checks
Bronson Stocking / Townhall Tipsheet
In signing the relief package, the president made it clear that he was signing the bill to provide assistance to the American people. The president said he was sending a redlined version of the 5,600-page bill back to Congress asking them to remove wasteful and embarrassing pork spending contained in the legislation.
"I will sign the Omnibus and Covid package with a strong message that makes clear to Congress that wasteful items need to be removed," the president said in a statement. "I will send back to Congress a redlined version, item by item, accompanied by the formal rescission request to Congress insisting that those funds be removed from the bill."

Dr. Fauci Misleading the Public on Health Information
Recently, a figure to whom millions of Americans look for guidance — Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, an adviser to both the Trump administration and the incoming Biden administration — has begun incrementally raising his herd-immunity estimate.
In the pandemic’s early days, Dr. Fauci tended to cite the same 60 to 70 percent estimate that most experts did. About a month ago, he began saying “70, 75 percent” in television interviews. And last week, in an interview with CNBC News, he said “75, 80, 85 percent” and “75 to 80-plus percent.”
In a telephone interview the next day, Dr. Fauci acknowledged that he had slowly but deliberately been moving the goal posts. He is doing so, he said, partly based on new science, and partly on his gut feeling that the country is finally ready to hear what he really thinks.
