Trouble In Paradise?

Well this is alarming, the NEW homes , 400+, that they’re going to build here in Belleview by the library off 484, seems to be the “New Sink Hole Capital of Florida”. Our drone service, “Sky’s the Limit” has been monitoring the whole process and for now, we don’t like what were seeing.

Currently there seems to be more than 4 and they’re expanding. All the rain hasn’t helped, but I’d like to know if my new home was built near these.

Trump Is The Only Issue In 2024

Former President Donald Trump is the only issue voters will vote on in the 2024 presidential election. Some might object that he has to win the GOP nomination first, and technically that’s true. The Republican party has attracted some solid conservative candidates for president, but Trump’s base overwhelms support for any other candidate.

On the other hand the Biden administration, complicit legacy media, and #NeverTrumpers have worked diligently to keep Trump front and center in every 24-hour news cycle. Remember when Hillary, the DNC, and establishment wanted Trump to be the GOP candidate in 2016? Be careful what you ask for.

Consider that Joe Biden defeated Trump in a close, divisive, and problematic contest. Biden has a relatively small percentage of voters. His record as president is dismal. The only chance Biden has of winning in 2024 is to convince voters Trump will undoubtedly destroy the United States of America.

When Trump was president he was besieged daily by the usual suspects. Ironically Trump has demonstrated he can unify large groups of influencers and voters more than any other person or policy in American history. He unifies and evokes pure hatred from his opposition.

What can an incumbent candidate do when he or she doesn’t have a good record to run on? When his opponent’s record on the economy, credit rating, inflation rate, gas prices, minority unemployment numbers, and border control were so much better than the incumbent’s? Weaponize the DOJ, FBI, and all the other bureaucracies.

In the past few months former president Trump has been indicted three times, and a fourth indictment is pending in Georgia. Trump is the only president who has ever been indicted, and coincidentally, some polls have him leading President Biden in the 2024 race for president. In fact his poll numbers appear to rise every time he’s indicted.

March 30, New York County District Attorney indicted Trump on 34 felony accounts about business records, including allegations about paying Stormy Daniels hush money to cover up a reported affair seven years ago. A trial date has not yet been set.

June 9, the DOJ indicted Trump on 37 felony counts of mishandling classified documents. July 27 three more felony counts were added to the initial charges. The trial on these charges is scheduled to begin May 20, 2024.

Last week Special Counsel Jack Smith announced four felony charges against Trump for conspiracy to defraud the United States; conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding; conspiracy against rights and obstruction of and attempt to obstruct an official proceeding. All four charges revolve around statements Trump made in challenging results of the 2020 presidential election as well as his speech on January 6, 2021, to a large gathering of supporters.
