    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has ordered the state to crack down on collegiate student groups that showed support for Hamas' Operation Al-Aqsa Flood terrorist attacks against Israel two weeks ago.

    The governor directed Ray Rodrigues, chancellor of the State University System of Florida, to send notices to the University of Florida and the University of South Florida notifying them that they must deactivate their chapters of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) because they allegedly broke Florida laws about terrorism.

    "During a holy Jewish holiday, the recognized terrorist organization, Hamas, launched an unprovoked attack on Israel - among those killed were babies, women, and elderly," Rodrigues said in a letter to the presidents of Florida's public universities. "To date, approximately 1,400 Israelis have been killed, including 31 American citizens. Governor DeSantis, our State University System and the Florida College System have condemned these attacks."

    In response to the Palestinian Islamic terrorist attacks, "National Students for Justice in Palestine (National SJP) released a 'toolkit' which refers to Operation Al-Aqsa Flood as 'the resistance' and unequivocally states: 'Palestinian students in exile are PART of this movement, not in solidarity with this movement,'" the letter said.

    The letter noted that under Florida law, it is a felony to "knowingly provide material support . . . to a designated foreign terrorist organization. . ." Hamas is designated by the Untied States as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.

    "Here, National SJP has affirmatively identified it is part of the Operation Al-Aqsa Flood-a terrorist led attack," the letter continued, later adding: "Based on the National SJP's support of terrorism, in consultation with Governor DeSantis, the student chapters must be deactivated."

    The letter concluded by saying that Florida will continue to monitor events on college campuses and will be "using all tools at our disposal to crack down on campus demonstrations that delve beyond protected First Amendment speech into harmful support for terrorist groups."

In the most recent Midterms Election, the "Republican Red Wave" turned out to be a "Republican Red Ripple," which, as in all elections, confounded the political prognosticators of what to expect down the governing /political road: What, and who, do you think is best for this meandering Representative Republic in the near future?
  Because they know how to best allocate the public's money back to the right part of the public, the Democrats will NOW always prevail and get my vote.
  With patriotic pragmatism the cornerstone of the best of the Republican Party, they will ultimately save this Constitutional Republic from self-destruction.
  Since the Executive Branch is so important to turn this Representative Republic around, I am still on Team Trump in 2024.
  Since the nation may need a different path to Conservative patriotism in the Executive, I am joining Team DeSantis.
  Because I am entitled to take the government dole, the prevailing favoritism whenever possible, I will support any, and every Democrat candidate.
