Some readers think I should never allow my friend Roger Stone to be published on Frank Report. I disagree. He has a lot to say and the good thing is people either agree or disagree with him and that means a lot of clicks for me. Thank you in advance for understanding.

Many friends, conservatives and strong supporters of President Trump are surprised that I have chosen to criticize Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. I only ask that you focus on exactly what I have written, not what the fake news media has reported which has largely distorted what I am saying and how I feel.
I have outlined a number of public policy areas where the Governor’s actual performance does not meet his political rhetoric. Additionally, I think it would be disingenuous of the Governor to run for reelection without pledging to serve all four years of his next term and to specifically forgo any challenge to President Donald J. Trump for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.
President Donald Trump, despite a concerted, illegal coup plot against him, utilizing both unlimited funding and the broad powers of his own Justice Department, fulfilled his promise to the American people to restore our economic vitality and strength, forged better trade agreements that actually benefit the United States as well as our trading partners, withdraw us from international multi-billion dollar agreements where we were expected to finance efforts for a cleaner environment while the largest polluters in the globe were required to pay nothing, rebuilt our military strength and, at long last, reformed our criminal justice laws which have disproportionately and unfairly destroyed the lives of poor people, African Americans and all people of color.
To my mind, President Donald J. Trump has earned the 2024 nomination if he chooses to seek it. Let’s just say that in the event that he does not elect to run, let’s just say that Governor Ron DeSantis would not be the candidate I would support. Republicans, conservatives and Trump supporters across the nation who are impressed with our Governor with his high-flying rhetoric, must focus carefully on his public policy decisions.
While I have lauded his efforts to end internet censorship, the legislation he ultimately signed was poorly crafted, incomplete and may not pass review in the courts where it is being challenged. On the question of election integrity, the Governor insists that we have just had the most honest and fair election in Florida’s history. I believe based on extensive work by Defend Florida and on the law of mathematical probability that there are at least 1.6 million phantom voters currently on the Florida rolls. The Governor needs to purge the rolls of voters who have died, moved out of state, are registered at an address where there is no residential property (usually raw land or a vacant lot) or who never existed at all.
While conservatives across the country hailed Governor Ron DeSantis when he announced that he would ban mandates to force school children to wear masks in school, the reality is that 1.6 million are still being forced to wear masks and the Governors response to local insurgent School Boards who are breaking the law has been impotent.
No one can doubt that Ron DeSantis is clever. He did not support Donald Trump for President in 2016 and would not endorse the Trump candidacy even after Donald Trump was nominated and they were running on the same ticket as DeSantis was seeking reelection to Congress. Ron became a Trump supporter the instant Donald Trump was elected and made extraordinarily effective use of FOX television and conservative talk-radio to emerge as among President Trump’s most articulate defenders in the Russian collision hoax.
President Trump rewarded DeSantis with his endorsement in the Florida Republican primary for Governor, catapulting him from being a little-known provincial Congressman to being the Republican nominee for Governor over Agricultural Commissioner Adam Putnam who was the Republican establishment’s candidate of choice. Ron DeSantis owes his nomination for Governor to Donald J. Trump.
Unfortunately, Governor DeSantis did not run a very effective campaign for Governor and I believe but for two visits to Florida by President Trump in the closing days of November of 3, neither DeSantis nor former Governor Rick Scott – who participated in a $1 billion Medicare fraud, but who was nonetheless elected statewide by the brilliant Republican strategist Tony Fabrizzio – would have been elected.
Please take a moment to read what I have actually said about the Governor and why I fervently hope that he will act quickly to make his actions meet his popular conservative-sounding rhetoric and claims.
His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.
His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg, “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson, “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.
Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.
Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.
Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.
Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
