    Ann and I send our prayers to the family of Gov. Williams tonight. Christopher and Caroline are dear friends, and he will be missed dearly by all who knew him.
  3. Gov. Sharp signs the pardon for Cyntoia Brown Today, I have signed a pardon that will see the release of Cyntoia Brown from the Tennessee Prison for Women. I have signed this pardon because I feel that justice has been served. If Cyntoia’s case were heard today, the court would treat her as a child human trafficking victim. She did kill someone, and she deeply regrets doing that. She was a young girl, a child, who was being abused in the most depraved and awful ways. She has demonstrated her accountability and served her time. She has received a college degree from Lipscomb University, no small feat. I have therefore used my power to grant her clemency because I feel that her debt to society has been paid, and she can go out and start to live a normal life. Something that she has never had the chance to do.

    Governor's Desk

    By the Governor of the Southeast Region, a Proclamation, On August 6, 2004, Cyntoia Brown was brought to the house of Johnny Allen by an abusive pimp after she was forced into a life of prostitution. For several weeks leading up to that day, she had been repeatedly raped and was on drugs. When she was brought to the house, she saw the many guns, and feared for her life. This led her, when the opportunity presented itself, to kill Allen out of fear. She was arrested, seen competent to stand trial, tried as an adult, and was convicted of first degree murder, and sentenced to 51 years in prison. Therefore, in my eyes, I feel that after being in the criminal justice system for 15 years, that justice has been duly served for the murder, which furthermore, I see as an act of self-defense. Now, therefore, I, Richard Lynn Sharp, Governor of the Southeast Region, by the power vested in me as Governor, have granted and by these presents do grant a full, free, and absolute pardon unto Cyntoia Denise Brown for the crimes of premeditated murder, murder, and aggravated robbery, of which she was convicted of by the State of Tennessee in 2005. Given by my hand on this day, Rick Sharp, Governor

    How do you think Gov. Sharp is doing?
  7. Rick Sharp addressed members of the American Legion in Beaufort, SC. It's a pleasure to be here in Beaufort, home of Marine Air Group 31. The upcoming Presidential election is going to be crucial, because we are at a crossroads. A crossroads between if we want to keep America strong and number one in the world, or watch America fade away into the night. Folks, I'm offering that first option. We need someone who is willing to stand up and identity who our foes in the world are today. Our biggest foes are Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea. Folks, now is not a time for America to skimp on its national defense. The Democrats we're planning on all but not giving ANY increases to our national defense, and if they win the White House that is what we are going to see. When I was in Congress, you may have all heard that I was instrumental in getting a budget compromise. The one area where I refused to budge was in defense. I fought Calvin Ward on that and by God, we got our way. Folks, when it comes to funding our military, we can't skimp. Because if we skimp in building up our armed forces, we will not be able to fight an effective battle when the time comes. We cannot afford to lose, and that's why we must be able to afford building our military now. Another area in which I refused to budge in the budget was in Veterans Affairs. Folks, I'm a veteran myself, and I was not willing to leave my brothers and sisters behind. We need to be there when they are not strong, because 22 a day is 22 too many! I pledge to you today that I will be the only candidate who will be able to tackle the issues on our veterans and defense. America is strong because we are able to project our power worldwide. There is no better friend than the Untied States of America and there is no greater foe than the United States. If you are our friend, we will build you up, and if you are our enemy, we will defeat you until you are nothing but a footnote in a history book. That's how powerful I want the United States to be, and it will under a Sharp presidency! Thank you very much for having me today, and may God bless the United States!

  9. Rick Sharp met with Christian leaders in Charleston, SC Hello Charleston, it's always a pleasure to be here in this beautiful city. I want to talk to you today about my faith. It is a central part of who I am, and I find myself looking to inspiration in the Bible daily. You know, I feel like faith is a very important trait to have if you are going to be in the highest office our nation has. They call it the loneliest job someone can have but when you have Jesus, you are never alone. Jesus taught us in Matthew 28:20, "And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age." And be sure of this folks, Jesus with be with me throughout my Presidency. Because in a job with so much responsibility, we must have a beacon of light we can turn to in the storm. Our nation was founded based on Biblical concepts, and it is important that we not stray from these. You know the United States Constitution is one of the most brilliant documents ever written. But then why wouldn’t it be, the very core of it comes straight from the Bible. The men that authored our Constitution were not perfect men, but they knew where to find perfection. Our Founding Fathers were men who knew and studied scripture. Their lives were wrapped in God’s Word; it was the chief source of their education. They relied on the Bible and philosopher’s whose own works and commentaries also relied on Holy Scripture. Scripture is what all laws are to be based upon. Romans 13:3-4 teaches us, “For rulers hold not terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he will commend you. For he is God’s servant to do you good.” We are taught to pray for our leaders as said in I Timothy 2:2-4, “for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to knowledge of the truth.” We need someone in Washington who isn't afraid to show their faith. That person is me. My foundations are rooted in my convictions for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In a time in which many of our institutions seem to stray away from God, the time is now for us to send folks to Washington that will not waiver from our convictions. I am the only person running for the Republican nomination that is unafraid to say, I love our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Let us pray, Dear father, we come to you today to ask us to bless our nation. To make it true to the ideas of freedom and justice. We ask you to guard us from war, and from compromise, fear, and confusion. We ask that you giver our leaders the courage and vision to make the right decisions that will make our country forever stronger. Lord, make this land great, and all of the people that live in it, In Jesus name we pray, Amen. Thank you all for having me today, and may God continue to bless the United States of America.

    Darren Fitzpatrick is holding a town hall in Boston, and he can't even tell folks why raising their electric bill would be bad. Not to mention he wants to completley erradicate the coal industry, and wants to tax farmers almost $30 billion A YEAR. Folks America can't afford to have people like this in charge. #unhingedleadership #votesharp #sharp2020

    Yeah so, Eversource Energy, the people that provide electricity here in Boston are a corporation. Who do you think they're going to charge when it costs more for them to do business? The fact that you have a Nobel Prize in economics is quite simple astounding.

    I just read your CLEAN Act, and basically from what I gather, with a carbon tax at $50/ton electricity rates will rise to about $430 a person. We're going to get killed up here during the winter if this becomes law, what were you thinking?
  20. Nubbie

    @RickSharpFL

    I've never seen something as misguided as the CLEAN Act. The American people sure as hell aren't happy about it. $1100 a year for families gone with this, and they just get more taxes. Unbelievable.

    In my tax plan, we offer what is called Universal Savings Accounts. In it, Americans like yourself are going to be allowed to save up to $25,000 per year in tax-deferred dollars. These Universal Savings Accounts belong to the American people not the government. You'll be allowed to withdraw from it at anytime to pay for college tuition or children's wedding, or even a down payment on a house, and yes paying back student loan debt, all tax free. It's going to create a culture that encourages savings and investment. Thank you for your question.
  22. Gov. Sharp spoke at the legislature today about the Combating Rising Sea Levels Act of 2019 Today, Republican legislators introduced the Combating Rising Sea Levels Act of 2019. A few weeks ago I spoke in Miami and promised that help was on the way to combat this very real threat. Today we have made good on that promise. The global sea level has been rising over the past century, and the rate has increased in recent decades. In 2014, global sea level was 2.6 inches above the 1993 average—the highest annual average since then. The sea level continues to rise at a rate of about one-eighth of an inch per year. Effects are already being seen in Miami Beach and Louisiana. Today, with this legislation that has been introduced, we're using some of the budget surplus money and rainy day funds. Rainy day funds are supposed to be used in case of an emergency, and folks this is an emergency. There are peoples homes and livelihoods at stake. If we don't do something now, it may be too late, and I couldn't sleep with that fact, that's why I felt compelled to act. In addition to funding for infrastructure, we have invested in research that will look into what we can do to further improve what already exists and hopefully come up with new technologies that can combat rising sea levels.

  24. Mr. Sharp, for himself and others submits the following,  A BILL To assist local municipalities affected by rising sea levels build the infrastructure to mitigate the effects. Section 1. This legislature finds the following, (a) With continued ocean and atmospheric warming, sea levels will likely rise for many centuries at rates higher than that of the current century. (b) The global sea level has been rising over the past century, and the rate has increased in recent decades. (c) Higher sea levels mean that deadly and destructive storm surges push farther inland than they once did, which also means more frequent nuisance flooding. (d) The oceans are absorbing more than 90 percent of the increased atmospheric heat associated with emissions from human activity. Section 2. Funds will be allocated to the following states as such: (a) Florida (1) $50,000,000 from the Regional budget surplus will be allocated to the State of Florida to fund infrastructure that will mitigate the effect of rising oceans.

(b) Louisiana (1) $50,000,000 from the Regional budget surplus will be allocated to the State of Louisiana to fund infrastructure that will mitigate the effect of rising oceans. (2) $150,000,000 will be diverted from Louisiana's rainy day fund and will be allocated to fund infrastructure that will mitigate the effect of rising oceans. (c) Mississippi (1) $50,000,000 will be diverted from Mississippi's rainy day fund and will be allocated to fund infrastructure that will mitigate the effect of rising oceans. (d) Alabama (1) $30,000,000 will be diverted from Alabama's rainy day fund and will be allocated to fund infrastructure that will mitigate the effect of rising oceans.

(f) South Carolina (1) $100,000,000 will be diverted from South Carolina's rainy day fund and will be allocated to fund infrastructure that will mitigate the effect of rising oceans. (g) North Carolina (1) $100,000,000 will be diverted from North Carolina's rainy day fund and will be allocated to fund infrastructure that will mitigate the effect of rising oceans. Section 3. Infrastructure Research (a) $100,000,000 from the Regional budget surplus shall be used to fund research towards finding better flood control systems This bill will take effect upon it passage
