  • Marco Rubio sounds alarm: Dems trying to STEAL elections in Florida

    Voter Fraud: When Democrat win elections, they claim a mandate and that everything was on the up-and-up. But when they lose elections, which is often, they immediately begin crying foul or searching for ways to steal victories. That’s what’s happening right now in Florida, according to one of the state’s two U.S. senators, Marco Rubio, a Republican. Days after the midterms Broward County — a Democratic stronghold — is now claiming that thousands of ballots have yet to be counted after being mysteriously ‘found’ on Wednesday and Thursday.
  • Ed Roth's Mysterion is gone, but one superfan built his own and it's up for auction

    Jeffrey Jones wrote the book on Ed “Big Daddy” Roth’s radical twin-engine Mysterion hot rod. Actually, he wrote about his journey to replicate it. Two years after Jones’ book was published, his actual replica car could be yours. RM Sotheby’s is offering the exceptional recreation at its Petersen Automotive Museum Auction on December 8. There is no reserve or pre-auction estimate, but the hot rod is expected to go for six figures. Roth’s innovations and creations made him a major player in 1950s and ’60s Southern California car culture. His first “famous” custom car was the futuristic Outlaw. He is also known for the Beatnik Bandit, Orbitron, Surfite, and Rotar....
  • Matthew Whitaker: acting attorney general said judges should be Christian

    Donald Trump’s new attorney general once said that judges should be Christian and proposed blocking non-religious people from judicial appointments. Matthew Whitaker, who was made acting attorney general on Wednesday after Trump fired Jeff Sessions, said judges needed a “biblical view of justice” and questioned the judgment of secular lawyers. Whitaker made the remarks at a conservative forum in April 2014, where he appeared as a candidate for the Republican US Senate nomination in Iowa. Video clips of the event were saved by People For the American Way, a liberal campaign group. The Republican candidates were asked what justification they...
  • Kellyanne Conway’s Husband Writes Scathing Op-Ed Saying Trump’s Interim AG Pick Is ‘Illegal’

    President Donald Trump‘s pick for interim Attorney General, Matthew Whitaker, has been met with harsh opposition in the form of a New York Times op-ed co-authored by none other than George Conway. That’s right, the same Conway who is married to counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway and regularly trolls the president on Twitter. “President Trump’s installation of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general of the United States after forcing the resignation of Jeff Sessions is unconstitutional,” they wrote. “It’s illegal. And it means that anything Mr. Whitaker does, or tries to do, in that position is invalid.”

    Three minutes after the 911 call came in late Wednesday night, Sgt. Ron Helus of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office pulled up at the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, California, where a former Marine had burst in and began shooting patrons. Helus, a 29-year veteran on the overnight shift, met up with a pair of California Highway Patrol officers who had raced to the scene from a traffic stop, authorities said. They could hear gunshots. There was no time to wait for backup. “What you saw last night with the sergeant and California Highway Patrol officer, that is...

    Michigan Democrat Rashida Tlaib, who won a seat in the US House of Representatives, wrapped herself in a “Palestinian” flag at her victory party. She is one of the two first Muslim women ever to be elected to the deliberative body, along with Somali Ilhan Omar from Minnesota. Daughter of Arabs who left Samaria for Nicaragua and later Detroit, Tlaib became the first Muslim female member of Michigan’s state legislature a decade ago. Tlaib is a vocal critic of President Donald Trump and was arrested two years ago for disrupting a Trump speech in Detroit, reported Yeshiva World. Asked during...

    The Kent State University chapter of a conservative advocacy group asked a federal judge to bar university officials from imposing security costs for an upcoming gun rights event set to be held in the student center. Liberty Hangout, which was involved in a recent open-carry rally on Kent State’s campus that resulted in several arrests and confrontations between participants and protesters, claims officials are unconstitutionally trying to impose an estimated $1,800 fee for eight police officers and six security guards to be on hand for a Nov. 19 event called “Let’s Talk Gun Rights.” The event is to feature Kaitlin...
  • Gillum-DeSantis Race Now In Recount Range

    Tampa Bay Times ^ | November 8, 2018 | David Smiley and Elizabeth Koh
    The race for Florida governor appears headed for a recount, as Democrat Andrew Gillum continues to gain on Republican Ron DeSantis during the tallying of the final uncounted ballots cast in the midterm elections. Gillum, the outgoing mayor of Tallahassee, conceded the race Tuesday night before 11 p.m. after results appeared to show him too far behind his opponent to make up the difference. DeSantis, a former congressman, gave his victory speech shortly after. But thousands of votes remained untallied. And over the next 36 hours, the margins gradually shrank. As of 9 a.m., DeSantis' lead was just 42,948 votes...

    Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) told The New York Times in an interview Thursday that she will need to wait for her congressional salary to kick in before she can rent an apartment in D.C. She explained that the transition period will be “very unusual, because I can’t really take a salary. I have three months without a salary before I’m a member of Congress. So, how do I get an apartment? Those little things are very real.” Ocasio-Cortez also told the Times that she had saved money before leaving her job at a restaurant and had planned accordingly with her...

    In Tuesday's congressional elections, the Republicans lost the House of Representatives and held the Senate. Of the three branches of the federal government, the Democrats regained control of half the legislative power – that is, one-sixth of official Washington. As in the 2016 elections, few people could predict the exact outcome of the 2018 midterms. The so-called "blue wave," which the Democrats were championing, did not reach the Senate. However, the "red tsunami" of the Republicans passed by the House of Representatives. What happened? Behind the façade of the elections in 2018, the political stables became mutually cleared. In the...

    Video Link Blurb from the video: Context to this video: The opening night of the 32nd Israeli Film Festival in L.A, November 6, 2018. The recipient of the IFF Award this year was Jason Blum. He was introduced on to the stage as someone who "Dresses up as Ivanka Trump and then Stormy Daniels on Halloween," as if that is the crowning achievement of his life. He then gets on stage, and mentions how he's always checking his phone to see the election results, and that "We're winning." Upon hearing this, I said aloud: "Who's we?" Several people around me...
  • Editorial: Florida Turns Red With Republican Wins

    Florida has turned from purple to red. For the first time since Reconstruction, Republicans will hold every statewide office assuming Gov. Rick Scott’s narrow lead over incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson holds up in an expected recount. Wins by Scott and former U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis in the governor’s race complete the Republicans’ complete domination of what was once a swing state. And the biggest winner is President Donald Trump, who carried the state two years ago and campaigned hard for Scott and DeSantis. Scott and DeSantis won Tuesday by portraying their opponents as too out of touch, too...

    Last November, Jews For Racial & Economic Justice (JFREJ) released Understanding Antisemitism. The bizarre tract had as much in common with the reality of anti-Semitism as Marxism does with economics. JFREJ, a radical leftist group, claimed that “white Christians” in Europe had “invented anti-Semitism”. That would have come as news to Pharaoh, Haman and Mohammed: in JFREJ’s parlance, “people of color” who had innovated and spread anti-Semitic ideas, while seeking to exterminate the Jews. “Antisemitism was something European Christians created and brought to the Middle East within the last 150 years,” JFREJ insisted. There was no such thing as Muslim...

    A board coated in the new polymer paint stays significantly cooler than its surroundings, even in direct sunlight, as seen under ultraviolet lights. (Image courtesy of Columbia University.) ___________________________________________________________________ A team of engineers from Columbia University has created a polymer coating that uses nano-to-microscale air voids to reflect sunlight and cool down buildings. Passive daytime radiative cooling (PDRC) is a phenomenon where a surface spontaneously cools by reflecting sunlight and radiating heat to a cooler atmosphere. PDRC works best if a surface has high solar reflectance—meaning that most of the sun’s radiation is reflected away—and a high thermal emittance—meaning that...

    A federal appeals court in San Francisco ruled against the Trump administration Thursday, saying the government cannot immediately end the DACA program that gives young undocumented immigrants a chance to continue living and working in the U.S. without the threat of deportation. The administration had sought to block an injunction from lower courts that temporarily prevented the government from going ahead with plans to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. “The Executive wields awesome power in the enforcement of our nation’s immigration laws,” the ruling said. “Our decision today does not curb that power, but rather enables its...

    CNN's Jim Acosta was talking with Anderson Cooper. Acosta told Cooper that he did not touch the White House intern/aide when she tried to take the mic away from him. CNN showed part of the controversial video clip during their segment, but not the part where Acosta's hand/arm made contact with the White House staffer. They did make contact, but it does not seem like Acosta was trying to hurt anyone or anything like that. It was still very unprofessional behavior. We must all act more respectful when it comes to this stuff. Video on the source.

    Turkey does not differentiate between what it sees as terrorist organisations and any support for Syrian Kurdish forces means supporting the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), state-run Anadolu news agency quoted presidential spokesman İbrahim Kalın as saying on Wednesday in reference to U.S. backing for Kurdish fighters in Syria battling Islamic State. Turkey sees the People’s Protection Units (YPG) and its political wing, the Democratic Union Party (PYD), that control most of northeast Syria as part of the PKK that has been fighting for self-rule inside Turkey for more than 30 years. The YPG denies being part of the PKK, but...

    Full title: FL SEN: Something Very Odd (And In Violation Of State Law) Is Going On In These Two Democratic Counties Something odd is occurring in Florida’s Senate race. Republican Gov. Rick Scott has declared victory over incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson. At the time, Scott led Nelson by a little over 34,500 votes. It’s now been cut to around 18,000. We’re heading into recountterritory, as Scott’s lead has swindled to 0.2 percent; less than half of one percent triggers an automatic recount. Yet, in two Democratic bastions—Palm Beach and Broward counties—they’re taking their sweet time counting the votes and...
