Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) responds to a court blocking his state's 15-week abortion ban. Judge John Cooper announced Thursday that Florida's 15-week abortion ban will be blocked in state court this comes on the heels of the supreme court ruling to overturn Roe v Wade last week Florida governor Ron DeSantis promised that he will appeal the ruling which will likely automatically block Cooper's ruling until another court decision can be issued take a listen for governor DeSantis's full reaction here.



DeSantis while addressing a press conference said:
You know make a couple of comments, we've had a lot of judicial activity lately but we did have a ruling in Tallahassee (Florida) effectively in joining the bill that we provided though that I signed to provide protections for unborn babies at 15 weeks and we knew that that was likely going to be what was decided in that case. 

We knew that we were going to have to move forward and continue the legal battle on that and that's something that was decided under state law so was not anticipate unanticipated it was not of course something you know that we were happy to see and when you talk about these are unborn babies that have heartbeat they can feel the pain they can suck their thumb and to say that the state constitution mandates things like dismemberment abortions I just don't think that's the proper interpretation so we'll go we'll appeal, DeSantis concluded his statement.

The Florida legislature passed the law, known as House Bill 5, and Governor Ron DeSantis signed it in April. The law bans most abortions after the 15th week of pregnancy unless the health of the mother is threatened or unless the baby has a "fatal fetal abnormality," according to the Washington Post

Leon County Circuit Judge John Cooper announced that he would issue a temporary injunction against the state abortion ban, calling it "unconstitutional." The judge did not draw on last week’s Supreme Court decision that overturned Roe v. Wade but instead referenced from the state constitution’s language regarding privacy.

In her Senate speech Joni Ernst said: Blocking the bill's passage today is not just disappointing, but it is endangering, and we have to act now. I mean, you can read the Tweet. It's right here. They're Seeking Justice. They're looking for retribution and revenge, and again it was sent from U.S. soil. This tweet was If that doesn't constitute a clear and present danger demanding immediate attention, then I honestly don't know what does. Even if a nuclear agreement is reached, folks, it's not going to change Iran's at Russian influence was not curbed by the Obama-Biden administration's failures. In fact, it invigorated Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons. Their mythical deal effectively financed the world's best organized and most capable terror group to rain down attacks on the United States

  Photo "Donald Trump" by  Dan Scavino At his rally last night in Youngstown, Ohio, former President Trump blasted Democrats, slammed President Biden's record, and pointed to a positive poll that showed him doing well in Ohio. Do watch below: Trump in his Youngstown rally said: A poll just came out. Did you see it? I'm 18 points up on Biden. Who the hell wouldn't be? Who wouldn't be? Who wouldn't be? We won Ohio twice, and now we're way up higher. We want it in two landslides, and now we have to give JD a landslide because he's straight. I have to give him a landslide. What a state. But you know what, coming in, I noticed some of the factories, the old buildings, and I said, you know, 50 years ago, that was something that was incredible.

Forbes breaking news official youtube channel shared this viral video, which you can watch below:   DeSantis while addressing the media briefing said: Whoa, whoa, give me a break. That is nonsense. Stop politicizing. Okay, stop it. We declared a state of emergency when this thing wasn't even formed. We've had people in here. You've had counties doing They've done a lot of hard work, and honestly,  You're attacking these other people who've worked very hard, and so that's just totally false. I don't think we've ever, certainly since I've been Governor, declared a state of emergency this early. We made sure that we were very inclusive with it. We said that there was a lot of uncertainty and then we've worked to make sure the preparations that have been done and all

Joe Biden appears lost on stage after speech in New York; Americans call it 'embarrassing' | Watch

  Photo credit: Gage Skidmore/CC BY-SA 2.0,  via Flickr Hello, my friends, and welcome back to the US Hub. Thank you very much for being with me again. Today I read an article and watched a video of the President of the United States, the leader of the Free World, Joe Biden, on the stage of Lost in Space. I don't know what he's supposed to do, or what I don't think he knows, what's going on at all. I don't know how these guys are just having sprints of energy and mental energy for this guy to read the teleprompter. I don't understand that. This guy cannot function. I didn't have any problems with him I said, "Well, you know, he's just old and all that. Even though I understand that it is for his position, he has to be sharp, he has to be fit physically and mentally, he can't be full of energy, he's got so many issues at hand, but he has to analyze to make decisions. He's not meeting the requirements for that position. He should be fired.
