Rick Scott Praises Israel, Takes Aim at Palestinian Leadership and Maduro Regime

U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., continued his tour of Israel on Wednesday, contrasting that nation with Palestine and taking aim at the Maduro regime in Venezuela. 

Scott and U.S. Sen. Mike Braun, R-Ind., have been visiting Israel this week, meeting with leaders of that nation’s government on the ties between the two countries, talking about economic and military ties. 

When Scott launched the tour, his office showcased his record as governor, insisting he “worked to strengthen Florida’s relationship with Israel” and noting he visited that country three times during his eight years in Tallahassee. 

“Senator Scott will always stand with Israel, our great friend and ally, and fight to take action against those that wish to harm them,” the senator’s office noted. 

Scott praised Israel on Wednesday and contrasted it with Palestine.  

“As I continue to travel Israel, the contrast could not be more clear. Israel is a vibrant democracy that supports capitalism, champions human rights and holds free and open elections,” Scott said. “Conversely, Palestine had their last election for president in 2005, refuses to hold open and free elections, and fails to champion human rights. The United States must always align with those fighting for freedom and democracy, and stand up against those that do not respect human rights.”

Another foreign policy hotspot was on Scott’s mind as well. Scott was in Jerusalem on Wednesday where he visited the Western Wall “to pray for an end to Nicolás Maduro’s evil regime and genocide in Venezuela.”

Scott is a backer of President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and moving the American embassy to that city. 

“It’s the capital of Israel, our embassy ought to be located there,” Scott told the Jerusalem Post at the end of 2017.

Rick Scott is a good man. I appreciate so much his office taking the time to deal with important issues that really matter to us. There are many but he has shown he cares about some things near and dear to my heart.

Why don't you go live in Iran, or Indonesia, and stop causing trouble for Israel and everyone else? #BoycottIslamists

We hear you Hillary. Glad to see you've found employment. Now move along...

Low-slider Scott is invoking Yahweh's assistance to help get hold of lucrative natural gas transmission lines in Venezuela in which ChromeDome anticipates becoming (or already is) a serious investor. The guy's a slimeball.

Of course, being a stupid Progressive-Socialist, you don't know that Venezuela nationalized the natural gas industry in 1971, appropriating all the facilities & resources of American and foreign companies WITHOUT compensation! Those companies lost $Billions$. Moron.

With America producing natural gas and oil at an all-time high, and Venezuela producing at record lows, I'd say it's a fairly safe bet to call your statement an outright lie.

Bingo! But, what did you expect from a stupid Progressive-Socialist?

This is an example of why you were Florida's best Governor, Senator Scott....(That position must be "EARNED",.. NOT expected..!)

Hold your praise. Scott signed knee-jerk Red Flag bill into law just weeks after the MSD shooting in a glaringly naked political move to win votes among the large pop. of Democrat voters in So. FL. He is now supporting the same un-Constitutional and outrageous proposal on a national level. Scott refused to uphold the existing FL ban on gay adoptions of innocent children. Best governor? I strongly dispute that!

Thank you for your service Senator Scott. Every time I read something about you I am reminded of how blessed we are to have been able to elect you to replace Zippy the Rocket-man Bill Nelson.

Scott was definitely the lesser of two evils, as Nelson was nothing but a Leftist stooge, who was on the scene Far too long.

Yup!, "Zippy the rocketeer" is now riding his rockingchair around his bedroom in his Walmart coveralls... singing "I coulda been a contenda.."

I never understood why Bill Nelson always voted against Florida on every issue.

Answer: He had a "D" after his name.
