BRCF ENDORSES RON DESANTIS FOR GOVERNOR, CONDEMNS LIBERAL RACIST ATTACKS AGAINST CONGRESSMAN DESANTIS

Hollywood, FL – The Black Republican Caucus of Florida is proud to endorse Congressman Ron DeSantis to be the next Governor of the State of Florida. Congressman DeSantis is a tried and true public servant who has honorably served his country from the battle field to the Chambers of Congress, working on behalf of all Americans, including African-Americans. Congressman DeSantis has supported the Black Republican Caucus of Florida throughout his entire tenure as a Member of Congress, working with Chairman Jackson to address issues and concerns of constituents that Chairman Jackson has brought forth to his office.

The Black Republican Caucus of Florida condemns all racist accusations being fabricated by democrats and liberal media who have attempted to demonize Congressman DeSantis in misrepresenting his comments to portray something that they are not. As Congressman DeSantis’s remarks were in no way directed to his opponent, the democrats and liberal media are working overtime to discredit an incomparable man of valor. It is Congressman DeSantis’s impeccable record of leadership from serving as a JAG officer in the United States Navy to serving as both a federal and military prosecutor, prosecuting a wide rage of cases including child exploitation, corruption and child abuse, to serving the 6th District of Florida as a member of Congress taking charge on issues from government accountability, fiscal responsibility, national security and the constitution. Congressman DeSantis is a fighter who will ensure that not only is diversity a cornerstone of his campaign and Administration, but that such diversity supports and promotes policies that protect the wellbeing of all African – Americans in the State of Florida.

“I’ve personally known Ron for many years and as a friend it sickens me to see how the left is attempting to paint him as something that he is not! Ron has proven himself time and time again to be a champion of black issues and has never shied away from them whenever I have addressed them with him. He’s a good man with a heart after God who loves country and loves this great state that we’re blessed to call home. I stand by Ron today, tomorrow and will continue to stand by Ron throughout his administration and will work with him to ensure that African – Americans are equally represented.”

CONSUMER ADVISORY: DO NOT BUY OMAROA’S TRASH BOOK OF LIES

Hollywood, FL – Omarosa Manigault – Newman has been a thorn in the side of black republicans since President Donald J. Trump was elected. Mrs. Newman went out of her way to prevent any black republicans, including Chairman Sean P. Jackson from serving in the Trump Administration. Mrs. Newman conned the entire republican party into believing that she was loyal to the party and would do everything possible to support President Trumps Black America agenda, however, did the opposite. Mrs. Newman sabotaged President Trumps Black America agenda by refusing to allow black republicans near the White House, ignoring policy proposals drafted and submitted by black republicans to combat issues in Black America, and by refusing to engage with Black Americans or to conduct any grassroots outreach to offer inclusion with the Trump Administration.

Mrs. Newman has proven herself time and time again not to be trustworthy from the day she was fired from the Clinton Administration, to when she was fired from the Apprentice and present day her firing from the Trump Administration. None of what Mrs. Newman alleges regarding to President Trump in  her book was a concern, until now, because it is a fabricated truth. Mrs. Newman’s sick and vile attempt to discredit and defame President Trump’s character and all the many great Americans who Mrs. Newman speaks of in her book boldly speaks to the lack of character in which Mrs. Newman possess and for that reason in addition to those briefly mentioned above and many more not mentioned in this release, Chairman Sean P. Jackson urges all Americans not to waste their hard-earned money or their time in consuming such deceitful lies.

“Having worked closely with Omarosa during the campaign, I too was fooled into thinking that her efforts were genuine and pure. Having observed and witnessed firsthand her attempt to defame close friends of mine, fight to tarnish and threaten colleague’s ability to graciously serve our great nation, I wouldn’t dare trust one word that comes from her mouth. Omarosa is a proven fraud, a fake, a phony and anyone who chooses to associate themselves with her is just the same”.

CHAIRMAN JACKSON HOSTS PRESS CONFERENCE TO DEMAND WEST PALM BEACH POLICE CHIEF SARAH MOONEY RESIGN, EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY

West Palm Beach, FL – With 10 Homicides and no leads in less than 40 days, the City of West Palm Beach police have failed to design and implement a strategy to assist in curbing the recent increase in deaths. As these senseless killings continue to take place; all geographically located in the same area, it is the Chief of Police whose responsible for drafting and directing Assistant Chiefs to execute strategy that inserts the PD into community relations in such a way that allows for proactive policing and not reactive.

Due to the lack of response specifically from Chief Sarah Mooney of the West Palm Beach Police Department, Chairman Jackson is demanding that Chief Mooney resign, effective immediately.

Chairman Jackson will host a press conference with concerned members of the community, today, Monday, April 29, 2019 in the Courtyard of the West Palm Beach City Hall, starting at 1:00PM.

“As a lifelong resident of this beautiful city I have a vested interest in ensuring that residents of the entire city be kept safe and protected from senseless killings such as those most recent.

Every time someone is murdered a mother and father must bury a child, prematurely. Having personally been raised in the Historic Northwest myself, I’ve seen these heinous acts far too many times, and though the responsibility also bares on the community itself to share information and just as importantly be educated about better conflict resolution remedies in lieu of resulting to gun violence, it is also the responsibility of the PD to assist community in remaining safe. This Chief has not made such responsibility a commitment and therefore I feel its in the best interest of both the community and the reputation of the PD that she resigns, effective immediately.”

BRCF SUPPORTS GOVERNOR DESANTIS SUSPENSION OF SHERIFF SCOT ISRAEL / APPOINTMENT OF 1ST BLACK SHERIFF OF BROWARD COUNTY

Hollywood, FL – The Black Republican Caucus of Florida (BRCF) is proud to stand in support of Governor Ron DeSantis as he continues to stand on his principles, holding elected officials across the state of Florida accountable against fraud, malfeasance, misfeasance and the neglect of duty.

On March 18, 2018 the horrific series of events that took place at Marjorie Stoneman Douglass Highschool in Parkland, FL, left Florida and the nation in shock after learning that the mass shooting could’ve been prevented. Over the course of a 9-year period Broward Sheriffs Office received 39 different calls regarding MSDH gunman Nikolas Cruz. During Sheriff Israel’s tenure, not once did the Sheriff direct command leadership or staff to address the issues further, also ignoring redirected calls from the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI).

As an elected official and leader of the largest law enforcement agency in Broward County it is the responsibility of the Sheriff to ensure that all command staff, department heads and deputies be performing to the highest standards humanly possible. Furthermore, it is the responsibility of the Sheriff to demand that BSO in its entirety deliver the soundest customer service possible. That was not the case under the direction of Sheriff Israel.

BRCF is grateful to Governor DeSantis for taking the bold step in correcting these issues and offering an alternative to the constituents of Broward County as they seek to rebuild trust in  the law enforcement agency that serves and protects all residents of Broward County regardless  of  zip  code.  BRCF  applauds  Governor  DeSantis  appoint  of                                                                                                        , Broward County’s first black sheriff. This monumental appointment again, speaks to Governor DeSantis’s commitment to put community first while upholding the rule of law.

“Governor DeSantis is a man of true moral and conviction whom I am proud to support and stand by. Governor DeSantis’s decision to suspend Sheriff Israel and appoint Sheriff                                  is a true testament to his ability to lead and govern according to what is in the best interest of Florida constituents, period. I am also grateful that in Governor DeSantis’s appointment, history has been made as we now have the 1st black Sheriff in Broward County’s existence. I look forward to working with Sheriff and helping to restore constituents trust in BSO.”

Sean P. Jackson – Chairman, Black Republican Caucus of Florida

BRCF SUPPORTS GOVERNOR DESANTIS FULL PARDON OF GROVELAND FOUR

Hollywood, FL – The Black Republican Caucus of Florida is proud to stand in support of  Governor Ron DeSantis as he fulfills a campaign promise to posthumously pardon the Groveland Four; Ernest Thomas, Samuel Shepard, Walter Irvin and Charles Greenlee.

The four gentlemen who were wrongfully accused of raping a 17 – year old white woman in 1949, for years have lived with the guilt and shame of knowing that they were publicly villainized and crucified for a crime they did not commit. Thanks to the commitment of Governor DeSantis these gentlemen, those still living and the legacies of the deceased, along with their families can now move forward in peace knowing that their name not live on in disgrace

“As a black man, who has a son myself I think back to the many different cases like the Groveland Four, those we know of and the countless cases that have never been heard of, and often ponder in realization that such a circumstance could’ve been me or could’ve been my son. Its ever so humbling to wake up each day knowing that I did not have to endure such a reality. I am eternally grateful to Governor DeSantis for his leadership and ongoing efforts to uphold the rule of law and reassure all Floridians that such a rule be fair and just for our states 21 million residents regardless of color, creed or national origin. “

BRCF Expresses Support for HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson

Hollywood, FL – The Black Republican Caucus of Florida is proud to stand with and in support of U.S. Housing & Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson. Dr. Carson is a compassionate and sincere servant of the American people who believes that all men are created equal regardless of color, creed or national origin. Dr. Carson is a spirit led man who works ever so diligently on a daily basis to ensure that his leadership is both honest and forthright. As the newly confirmed Secretary of the United States Department of Housing & Urban Development Dr. Carson understands firsthand the precedence of ensuring that all Americans have equal access to the same resources and opportunities regardless of their original naturalization.

Sadly, our society has taken victim to relying solely upon rhetoric of the media and political operatives rather than taking heed to the discretion of our leaders and their proclamations. Furthermore, the double standard in which the media upholds when reporting our politics to the American people has denigrated the holistic wellbeing of our family unit. The American people must understand the significance of such a travesty and begin to take a stand against pragmatic injustice. The recent comments of Dr. Carson were not only accurate but similar in correlation to comments of then President Barack H. Obama. As the definition of immigrants speaks solely to one’s permanent living in a foreign country, Dr. Carson’s uplifting remarks to HUD staff only brought forth imagery of how slaves who were in fact immigrants overcame such incredulous obstacles and circumstances by way of persistence, hard work and dedication to their beliefs. We applaud Secretary Carson and the encouragement he has set forth for HUD staff and look forward to working with Secretary Carson over the years ahead to ensure that all citizens of the United States of America, regardless of national origin be morally and spiritually uplifted to a place where one can partake in a unison approach to achieving liberty and justice for all.

“I have come to know Secretary Carson not just as a public figure and a leader amongst the Republican Electorate; I have had the honor of witnessing up close and personal the sincerity and morality of his heart. I take solace in knowing a man who continually exemplifies to the citizens of our nation what the dream looks like; the American Dream.”
