Governor DeSantis Suspends Democrat State Attorney Who Refuses to Enforce Florida's 15-Week-Limit Abortion Law

Andrew Warren announced his refusal to enforce Florida's recently passed law, imposing a 15-week limit on abortion.

He has also announced that he will seek as little jail time for criminals as the law will allow. And maybe a bit less than that.


Here's a ringing endorsement from a a liberal rundown of the fifteen most powerful politicians in Florida:

Warren uses every constitutionally granted power he can to change the justice system from within.

"Social justice warrior" has become somewhat of a pejorative in the political lexicon. But if one were to describe what an effective social justice warrior might look like, you're likely to get something close, if not exactly, like Hillsborough County State Attorney Andrew Warren.

...

Major reforms have marked Warren's tenure as the top prosecutor in the county, to Hillsborough's justice system and bullish stance against bills like 2021's HB 1. The bill, filed in the wake of civil unrest following George Floyd's murder by Minneapolis Police, was a priority of the Governor. Warren called the bill unconstitutional and unnecessary because the state already had sufficient anti-riot laws.

That was DeSantis' anti-riot law, of course.


Warren didn't just publicly proclaim he wouldn't enforce the law, he refused to prosecute 67 protesters arrested in early June after Tampa protests turned violent. He also sought to expunge the arrests from each person's record and praised protesters for calling for reform.

...

Warren was quick to indicate he wouldn't wait for the Legislature to reform the criminal justice system. He began using every constitutionally granted power he could to change the system and keep youth and low-level offenders out. Warren took steps to decrease the number of people arrested and incarcerated for first-time, nonviolent offenses, and he worked to disarm domestic abusers and increase the use of problem-solving courts. Annually, his programs keep about 700 children and 850 adults out of the system.


If you can believe this, this guy was funded by George Soros:

pushawanouncement.jpg

At least that's what DeSantis and his team say. I haven't found independent confirmation of that -- but certainly this is the type of guy who would be funded by Soros.

Or maybe they're just emphasizing that Warren is a progressive prosecutor like the Soros prosecutors who routinely nullify the laws. Maybe that's what they mean.

So Governor DeSantis announced he was suspending him as an attorney. DeSantis declared that leftwing prosecutors were not permitted to act as "a law unto themselves."

BREAKING NEWS: Ron DeSantis SUSPENDS 'Soros-funded' Democratic Florida prosecutor for 'ignoring the law' and refusing to prosecute cases violating 15-week abortion ban and sex changes on children

Florida Governor DeSantis accused progressive state attorney Andrew Warren of acting 'above the law' during a press conference on Warren's home turf


...

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Thursday suspended a progressive state attorney who he accused of 'ignoring the law' for refusing to enforce several recent conservative reforms.

'State attorney for this Judicial Circuit, Andrew Warren, has put himself publicly above the law,' DeSantis said during a press conference on the prosecutor's home turf.

'In June of 2021, He signed a letter saying that he would not enforce any prohibitions on sex change operations for minors.'

DeSantis, who accused Warren of being funded by billionaire George Soros, also said that after the Supreme Court overturned abortion rights, Warren 'signed a letter saying he would not enforce any laws relating to protecting the right to life in the state of Florida.'

Florida was among the states to limit abortion access amid the fallout over Roe v. Wade being overturned, reducing the legal window to 15 weeks.

The governor rationalized the firing by claiming he was stamping out a 'pathogen' of activist prosecutors that he blamed for rising crime rates in multiple Democrat-run cities.

'We've seen across this country, over the last few years, individual prosecutors take it upon themselves to determine which laws they like and will enforce and which laws they don't like,' DeSantis said.

The result, he added, is 'catastrophic.'


'We are not going to allow this pathogen that's been around the country of ignoring the law, we are not going to let that get a foothold here in the state of Florida,' the governor said.


...

In addition to his activism on Florida's abortion laws and transgender medical treatments, Warren also refused to prosecute 67 Black Lives Matter activists arrested in June 2020 at a protest in Tampa that turned violent over anger about George Floyd's police murder in Minneapolis.


From Twitter: DeSantis appointed a Breakfast Tacox to serve in Warren's place:


"The Governor has appointed Susan Lopez to serve as State Attorney for the period of suspension. She has most recently been serving as a Judge on the Hillsborough County Court."

Video of DeSantis' statement below. He makes a good point: Warren says he'll enforce no limits on abortion. None at all.

But DeSantis points out that Florida has for a long, long time forbidden third trimester abortions, which has long been permitted by the superlegislature we call the Supreme Court.

So apparently Warren is not only cancelling laws passed since Dobbs, but he's looking back to laws passed decades ago and nullifying those as well.

He also compares Warren to "Soros prosecutor" and son of terrorists Chesa Boudin, and then brings on cops and prosecutors who discuss the mayhem Warren has unleashed by refusing to prosecute criminals.

Flashback: the leftwing state attorney Andrew Warren -- a rather low-level political flunky in the scheme of things -- announced that he alone would decide what the law is.

But every leftist is a tyrant, because leftism is a Will to Power demonic religion. L'etat, c'est moi.


You will not be surprised to learn that Andrew Warren has not previously been a fan of freedom of choice of one's private medical decisions!

Bonus: Also from the Daily Mail article, on Wednesday, DeSantis called for doctors who perform "gender-affirming care" surgeries on minors to be sued.


DeSantis comments came while discussing his state's substance abuse recovery model - and were met with fierce applause in response.

'One of the things that they are trying to do, is they talk about these very young kids getting gender-affirming care,' the governor said.

'But they don't tell you what that is, is they're actually giving very young girls miss double mastectomies. They want to castrate these young boys. That's wrong.'

When asked by DailyMail.com who 'they' refers to, Pushaw replied it was 'the powerful institutions and people who push the false narrative that so-called "gender affirming care" (experimental medical and surgical interventions) is the best way to deal with gender dysphoria or confusion in children and youth.'

'Moreover, "they" -- the politicians, doctors, and activists who promote "gender affirming care" -- falsely claim that puberty blockers are safe and should be given to children who are confused about their gender.'

DeSantis continued during his press conference, 'We've stood up and said, both from the health and children wellbeing perspective, you know, you don't disfigure 10, 12, 13 year old kids, based on gender dysphoria.'

He highlighted a 2011 study frequently referenced by opponents of gender-affirming care for children and teens, which suggests that a majority of transgender youth grow out of it by the time they are adults.

Critics of the study have insisted that it presents an incomplete picture.

'Eighty percent of it resolves, anyways, by the time they get older,' DeSantis said. 'I think these doctors need to get sued for what's happening.'

The left sort of moved away from that by the 90s, but obviously we are right back to it now...so responding like this makes sense from a political angle in addition to everything else.

So now they're pretending they like DeSantis -- if he can beat Trump.

If you read AP's stuff about DeSantis, you can generally feel the hatred dripping off AP - even when he's trying to show some support for DeSantis.

but we all know, it's not really the person they hate (Trump), its the policies. That's why so many of them, like AP, did 180s on every policy they previously claimed to support.

If DeSantis is the nominee, or even wins the general election, they will hate DeSantis with the same vigor that they hate Trump.

But I was very taken by a debate, a part of a debate between two Members of Congress running for re-election. They were asked a pretty simple question. And given the discussion you just had about Roe, and about women's rights. I do know that President Biden, he speaks really eloquently about this issue and about a number of other issues.

That you would think that the Democratic party would be quite proud of his accomplishments, absolutely on the world stage, given the potential world war that he's kept at bay. That's saying that sort of advocating.

So, my question to you is, do you think President Biden should be running for re- election? Is that even a question in your mind?

So what are they going to claim they oppose in DeSantis?

I don't know but they'll have a hard time saying he was a military piker compared to the sainted Beau or the possible '24 Dem canddiates.

"In 2004, during his second year at Harvard Law, DeSantis was commissioned an officer in the U.S. Navy and assigned to the Navy Judge Advocate General's Corps (JAG). He completed Naval Justice School in 2005. Later that year, he received orders to the JAG Trial Service Office Command South East at Naval Station Mayport, Florida, as a prosecutor. He was promoted from lieutenant, junior grade to lieutenant in 2006. He worked for the commander of Joint Task Force-Guantanamo (JTF-GTMO), working directly with detainees at the Guantanamo Bay Joint Detention Facility.

In 2007, DeSantis reported to the Naval Special Warfare Command Group in Coronado, California, where he was assigned to SEAL Team One and deployed to Iraq with the troop surge as the Legal Advisor to the SEAL Commander, Special Operations Task Force-West in Fallujah."

DeSantis does his homework along with his aides. He is probably one of the most disciplined politicians of our era. Florida law specifically allows suspensions including elected officials. Much of that was put in the books on various states due to local elected officials acting illegally in office and state legislatures not wanting to go to the extent of impeaching and removing them. So sheriffs, DA's, etc. that exercise executive or legislative powers can often be suspended in their office until an investigation occurs of the conduct. It will end up in court no doubt but DeSantis does not go off unprepared for it.

DeSantis also suspended the elections coordinator of Broward County which stuck early on as governor and as a result in 2020 despite record vote, Florida vote was in by 10 PM.

Flynn was downed by criminal charges backed by the Vice President. I'm quite surprised Flynn is still on Team Trump, but then the man obviously has considerable resilience and loyalty.

As for Comey and the impeachment follies, I'm confident that Trump realizes Congress is the enemy and must be purged completely/ quickly before any real reform can happen.

I have some disappointment that Donald Trump did not have many more people brought up on criminal charges, but when the judges are criminals what does it matter? I'm frankly disappointed DeSantis only went for suspending the lackey of a globalist terror mastermind. Yeah, that'll show them.

307 I think the line the media will take on DeSantis is that

1. He's an extremist MAGA Trump lackey (obvious)

2. He is personally worse and more corrupt and dishonest than Trump but hides it under a false, carefully managed cleancut prettyboy exterior. At least with Trump you knew what you were getting.

That second one is obvious too. What I mean is it's an obvious line to take and could be powerful emotional persuasion. It uses DeSantis's strength (he's "not" Trump) against him.

Once people are programmed to see DeSantis as fake - because he's composed and well managed on the exterior - it will be hard for him to deprogam it. His choice at that point will be to stay polite and composed, or to get vicious and nasty. Not ideal.

Warren is a constitutional hero. Good for him. I love how Deathsantis accuses others of acting as if they're above the law. These morons get 12 more votes than the other moron and believe they're god.

And what's he gonna do when jurors start nullifying prosecutions involving these psycho laws?

And he thinks he wants to run for the presidency? Keep up the anti-women bullshit, DeSatan. We've seen how that worked in Kansas, motherfucker.

Talk about "personal agendas". Inflicting YOUR religious beliefs into Civil Law, Ronnie D! From the movie, TOMBSTONE..."You tell em the law is coming. And hell's coming with me! You hear! Hell's coming with me!" Women in Kansas made their intentions clear. Women in Florida need to follow suit.

315 I get the angst about Arizona, given that everyone is gun shy about election fraud stealing another election. However, I recommend just calming down (who am I kidding? This is the Horde).

We are in the canvas period. This has always been part of elections, but is often ignored because some media "declared a winner" and everyone moves on to new topics.

During the canvas, the legality of the votes are assessed, and any illegally cast ballots are discarded. This includes mail-in ballots that don't match the voter signature. In 2020, this is a step that was NOT taken and ended up with illegally cast ballots being included in the Maricopa count, that cost Trump the election.

Given what happened in 2020, I am not surprised that Maricopa is being careful in making sure that the canvas will pass legal muster to avoid a repeat of 2020 and 2021 legal and legislative review.

Once the canvas is complete, THEN the election is certified and Lake becomes the nominee. The difference this year is that certain media outlets (Fox) don't want Lake to win, so they are not declaring her the winner.

People that are old have compromised immune systems. I have a compromised immune system due to an autoimmune disease and I took in back in January when I got Coof for the second time. I did not have a rebound in symptoms though.

First time I got the Coof, I was on the edge of going to the hospital due to blood o2 levels falling to a dangerous level. Did not happen the second time.

At worst, it doesn't help--at best, it can help you avoid the worst of the symptoms that can lead to a serious case. Basically it is something like Tamiflu for Coof.

339 DeSantis does his homework along with his aides. He is probably one of the most disciplined politicians of our era. Florida law specifically allows suspensions including elected officials. Much of that was put in the books on various states due to local elected officials acting illegally in office and state legislatures not wanting to go to the extent of impeaching and removing them. So sheriffs, DA's, etc. that exercise executive or legislative powers can often be suspended in their office until an investigation occurs of the conduct. It will end up in court no doubt but DeSantis does not go off unprepared for it.

DeSantis also suspended the elections coordinator of Broward County which stuck early on as governor and as a result in 2020 despite record vote, Florida vote was in by 10 PM.

377 "Prosecutorial discretion" properly understood means not pursuing certain cases where the evidence is marginal and there is a good chance the state will lose; when there are other more solid cases that could be pursued with the same resources.

392 "Prosecutorial discretion" properly understood means not pursuing certain cases where the evidence is marginal and there is a good chance the state will lose; when there are other more solid cases that could be pursued with the same resources.

It also allows prosecutors to go for different types of cases, say negligent homicide instead of manslaughter. And to seek different kinds of sentencing based on the type of defendant and circumstances. All of which, if used wisely and justly, are a good thing.

I understand where this sentiment comes from, but I disagree with it. Trump hired the former CEO of Exxon to be his State person. You don't do that if you're insecure about your position in life. He certainly fired execs in his private life, but the company has his name on it, it's a private corp, so he has the right to do that. Say what you want about Pence (I certainly do), but Trump gave him a high-profile role on the COVID Task Force. If Pence did the right thing during and after it, he would have earned Trump's endorsement. Trump's heart was in the right place, if not ultimately his head was.

446 I understand where this sentiment comes from, but I disagree with it. Trump hired the former CEO of Exxon to be his State person. You don't do that if you're insecure about your position in life. He certainly fired execs in his private life, but the company has his name on it, it's a private corp, so he has the right to do that.

And yet, of the people who he appointed, very few (other than Pompeo), managed to stay and not get trashed by him. Thus, my concern.

There are governors that are just as strong as DeSantis. The only reason we hear more about DeSantis is because of the number of FL's electoral votes.

If the CIA starts droning US citizens within the US, they're quickly going to find out that there aren't enough armed government jack-booted thugs to guard all of their homes in Alexandria or Georgetown.

Japan explicitly and openly supports Taiwan and recognizes its independence and would likely be its most valuable (and essential) ally in the region if it comes to war. China wants Japan on notice that hitting the Home Islands is possible (as well as its naval assets in home waters) if they do.

One of the objectives of the current Chines exercises and firing missiles sorta-close to Taiwan and Japan is to get intel about Taiwanese, Japanese, and US responses, response times, and hopefully some of their war-reserve comm and radar frequencies.

512 My concern is well. Trump's ego doesn't seem to permit him to ever let anyone else get the limelight. This would have to be incredibly frustrating for any strong subordinate.

I supported him based on an event in Las Vegas in 2015 in which he allowed victims of illegal immigrants to dominate the floor. He never tried to take the limelight. I don't think his ego is petty like that. He appreciates high performing people around him.

513 Nice to see a leader who does not have to rely solely on notes to read and to tell him what he must do at every turn, to speak clearly without a creepy whisper and then rant and rave, whose eyeballs don't become pinpricks and then dilate wildly, who doesn't shuffle around aimlessly and can actually pronounce words correctly. Oh, and doesn't have to lie. Amazing.

515 Bodyguards aren't stupid. Their primary role is to intimidate people so they won't do anything to their ward. When people actually start to do something, in large numbers, the bodyguards are going to bail.

519 I'll take your word for it. I always found Bronson to have an unsettling appearance.
Posted by: Joe Mannix (Not a cop!) at August 04, 2022 12:58 PM (WWh8n)

He was unsettlingly near-naked in 'Chatos Land'... a film he made when he was 60 or near to.

The man was very fit...but smoke, so not much lung capacity. He was so ugly he kinda blew past ugly and into weirdly magnetic.
Posted by: Mark Andrew Edwards, Buy ammo, food, water at August 04, 2022 01:00 PM (XvPQV)


He looks like an escapee from the Island of Dr Moreau, where in the good doctor created a man from a 170 lb catfish through vivisection.

That being said, his appearance made his tougher than nails characters believable.

BONUS! Shout out for "The White Buffalo"! A terrible but compellingly watchable movie held together by Bronson's sheer weird charisma.

521 Its genre. Revenge fantasy. Its not completely implausible because its basically the "wrap up" smear. Make it look like he snapped killed is family he goes to prison. Dies there from tumor. Game over. You aren't wrong though. Its over complicated. It does however, create additional emotional weight to the shock twist at the very end, doesn't it. that's why.

Don't get me wrong, I LIKE this show, it is just that I was waiting around for some other reason the wife had to die for instance and the daughter just got caught in the crossfire (or loose end because she saw the killer's face- whatever.) I dunno, I just like the villains to be a bit more that cardboard cutouts and that all these guys thought nothing of killing a child as a tactic takes me out of it just a bit.

The characterization of the Secretary also seems to be all over the place. On the one hand they seem to want to make her sympathetic and at the same time she is also conspicuously culpable. I dunno, I kind of like that ambiguity.

You aren't wrong. At all. I'm saying the author consciously made choices. He might have even gone back and changed things once he got the end, realizing, hey if I do "this" it ends "this way". Those things are related. The death of his family, and the twist ending. It gives a payoff of sorts that you don't get, if he just kills a list of people who are just miscellaneous bad guys. The whole thing is pretty implausible, but under the current reality, maybe not.

See, this is something that also seemed kind of fudgy to me. I read somewhere online that the drug was altered to NOT give tumors and actually worked, so that was her prime motivation in trying to clean this up and strengthened the 'greater good' idea- but the show never communicated that part. Was that in the book, maybe?

537 In 2013, it was puzzling even to the MSM why the Obama administration was buying and storing vast amounts of ammo. And lots of military type vehicles/equipment - much of which eventually went to various police departments around the country so they could be accused of terrorizing citizens in a later administration.

The dems always circle back.

he spends a good chunk of every rally talking about how well his allies at the state / congressional level / local level are doing.

VP is a job with no set duties, allowing a very active role as in the Bush II /Cheney days or more often a useless role like Kamala. If Trump / DeSantis make a ticket they could each take a shovel and start ripping out the chaff.
