The Gateway Pundit Reports - - According to the medical examiner, Floyd had a “fatal level” of fentanyl in his system at the time of his death. Minneapolis is spending around $36 million to protect the city from leftist rioters during the trial of Officer Derek Chauvin. And now the city of Minneapolis has to dole out another $27 million to George Floyd’s family. The death of George Floyd resulted in mass riots and damages into the billions. Hundreds of Minneapolis businesses and homes were destroyed by the leftist rioters over a man with a long criminal record who likely died of a fentanyl overdose. George Floyd’s family filed a federal lawsuit against Minneapolis and the four police officers who were present/participated in Floyd’s arrest. The family blamed the officers for Floyd’s death and the city reached an agreement before Chauvin’s trial even started!
Stelter contacted Newsmax at 9 p.m. on Wednesday night and said he would give us just one hour to respond, meaning a 10 p.m. deadline. Without Newsmax’s response, CNN’s Stelter email newsletter, headlined “Newsmax’s rise and fall,” noted that “Newsmax TV gained a lot of attention last fall when disaffected Fox News fans flocked to the channel en masse. … Newsmax’s Nielsen ratings are way off the post-election highs that I wrote about three and four months ago.” Stelter chalked up his “Newsmax is falling” story to his theory that “Newsmax is no longer getting a pro-Trump Big Lie ratings boost. Biden is a comparatively tame story.” As it turns out, Biden is also a very tame story for CNN as well, which has seen its own ratings collapse in recent weeks. Early Wednesday morning Newsmax sent Stelter the following response: “Only CNN would do a story on Newsmax’s drop in ratings when its own Nielsen total day impressions fell by 45% last week compared to the week after the election, and Brian Stelter’s own ‘Reliable Sources’ show fell by 44% over the same period with, more recently, his show having lost nearly 1 million viewers since January of this year.”
Governor said of Biden's teleprompter reading “Biden last night said that they may have to impose more lockdown-type policies in the future,” - - “I can tell ya, that ain’t happening in Florida. We are not going to let him lock down Florida. I know they talked about restricting travel of Floridians. That’s totally unacceptable, we’ve said that from the beginning” - - "To even contemplate doing any kind of lockdown, honestly it’s insane, so that’s not going to happen in the state of Florida,” he continued. “We like the fact that people have been able to work here… so we’re going to continue doing what works, but under no circumstances would we entertain doing anything of the sort.”
