Dear Patriot,

There is perhaps a greater threat to the integrity of Florida elections than the Dominion Voting machines. What appears to be a benign system to help states better maintain voter registration information actually has sinister roots. Our own Jim Pesnichak will explain the origin of this system, it's potential impact on our elections and what we can do about it at our next Manatee Patriots meeting.

"Brother, can you spare 5 bucks a week?"

Few people doubt that there is no better place to be on a Tuesday night than at

Mixon Farms for a Manatee Patriots meeting. Rubbing elbows with like-minded people, a fantastic lineup of premier conservative speakers and some of the best home cooking around makes our meetings something to cherish. But sadly, as in every other aspect in life, there is nothing like a free lunch, well in this case, dinner. We have weekly expenses that cover AC (we really need it now!), lighting as well as exhorbitant rates for IT support! So we are asking you to please consider giving generously every week. Even $5 a week would go a long way towards defraying some of these costs. For your convenience we have cleverly deployed a tea pot (a "Patriot Pot") on each table. So come, enjoy the meeting, let your Patriotism shine and give what you can...even if it's only 5 bucks!


Read on to be informed about important events and simple actions you can take to make a difference.

"Who Ya' Gonna Call?"


One of the hallmarks of this past Florida legislative session were key election integrity bills:  HB7061 and SB524.  A key provision of these bills was the establishment of a the Office of Election Crimes and Security, housed within the Florida Department of State.  This will enable Florida Law Enforcement personnel to pursue and arrest individuals involved in committing felonies pertaining to our election laws.

Recently,  Governor Ron DeSantis announced the appointment of Peter Antonacci as Director of the Office of Election Crimes and Security.  Mr. Antonacci has had an extensive career in public service, including experience in election security as a Deputy Attorney General, Statewide Prosecutor, and Broward County Supervisor of Elections.  With a powerful election integrity advocate in charge, we are hopeful that an added layer of security has been added to our upcoming elections.  To read the full announcement, just click on the button below.  Thanks to Michelle Martin for bringing this important news to our attention.


Excerpt from CitizenGo

Sign Petition to Disney: My family wont watch your LGBTQ+ films


To: Bob Chapek, Disneys CEO

My family wont watch your films nor buy your products designed to promote LGBTQ+ indoctrination and to corrupt childrens innocence.

The bombshell testimony by Disney Executives and the lesbian kiss in the Lightyear movie confirmed what many of us have known for a long time: Disney, today, is a hostage of the LGBTQ+ activists committed to corrupting our children through indoctrination. 

They don’t care about making our children’s dreams real, as long as Bob Chapek (the CEO) and his team are making money. But we have the power to change that. 

Disney cares about the income coming from its films and products… And, in reality, Disney's movie 'Lightyear' flopped in its first weekend in theaters, earning $51.7 million in the US, far from the 120 million of Toy Story 4 and the 110 million of Toy Story 3. Furthermore, revenue from its second weekend dropped by 65% (another new low). 

We, you and me, plus thousands of parents around the world, are winning the battle CitizenGO began against Disney three years ago: over the course of just a year, Disney stock has plummeted nearly 50 percent as their political-infused productions continue to turn away audiences and garner angry fan reactions. 

Disneys executives are panicking and thats why we need your help to push forward NOW against the company. Imagine how much power we will have if we send a massive pledge to Disney’s CEO, committing not to watch any Disney movies or shows or buy any product that promotes gender ideology.


Sign the pledge and tell Disneys CEO to stop polluting children with LGBTQ+ indoctrination, and join the campaign today. 

Sign the pledge NOW addressed to Bob Chapek, Disneys CEO: my family wont watch your films nor buy your products designed to promote LGBTQ+ indoctrination and to corrupt childrens innocence.

…Please join to send Disney a message it can't ignore.
