    Daily Caller ^ | December 4, 2016 | PHILLIP STUCKY
    Independent president Roque De La Fuenta announced he plans to sue the Florida Secretary of State, as well as the Broward County Supervisor of Elections for election fraud Monday, according to an exclusive interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation. De La Fuente cites a sworn letter from a Broward County election volunteer that reveals election officials filled in blank absentee ballots in a locked room, a behavior the campaign calls highly suspicious. De La Fuente is suing to expose a current hole in Florida election law, namely that officials don’t monitor closely for potential voter fraud unless the election...
  • (Vanity) Dade County Election Results (Hillary + 80,000 over Obama)?

    12/04/2016 8:19:32 PM PST · by Paddy Irish · 32 replies
    How did Hillary get 82,000 more votes in Miami-Dade than Obama got in 2012? It makes no sense. Hillary did slightly better than Obama in white college towns and small city state capitals, and in Atlanta and California, and that's about it. I'm talking about raw votes. This NY Times page has an option for 2012 vs 2016 on the left, it's really fascinating. It's the one that says "change from 2012". I've been going over and over it and there are some weird things at the county level.

    Palmer Report ^ | Dec 2, 2016 | Bill Palmer
    Yesterday a federally registered nonprofit election entity launched a fundraiser to cover the court costs of a lawsuit it intended to file in the name of forcing a statewide recount in the narrowly decided state of Florida. The attorney fees were fully crowdfunded within a matter of hours. And today the attorney in question announced that he has officially filed the lawsuit in question, creating at least some possibility that a Florida recount may happen. Florida state law prohibits any candidate from requesting a recount, meaning that third party candidate Jill Stein cannot force a recount in the state even...

    But the announcement that Mr. Obama will deliver a speech to U.S. Special Forces to confirm the wisdom of his counterterrorism strategy looks like validation of an effort that is far from settled. . . . “This speech will be a final opportunity for him to discuss at length how he has effectively, durably, and successfully implemented reforms to keep us safe,” Mr. Earnest said. The preview strongly hinted that Mr. Obama will defend his counterterrorism strategy, which has been sharply criticized by President-elect Donald Trump and congressional Republicans, as the correct path forward for the incoming administration.

    More white Americans are now dying than being born in a third of U.S. states, according to a study released Tuesday, which shows white deaths outpacing births in a record 17 states stretching from California to Maine. The study, by the University of New Hampshire, found natural decreases in the white population across 17 states in 2014, including Florida, New Mexico, Pennsylvania and West Virginia, which together comprise 38% of the U.S. population. That’s a big shift from 2004 when only four states had more white deaths than births. The declines, exacerbated by the Great Recession, are largely driven by...

    Although the death of a human being is rarely cause for celebration, it is the symbolic death of the destructive ideologies that he espoused that, I believe, is filling the Cuban exile community with renewed hope and a relief that has been long in coming. And although the grip of Castro's regime will not loosen overnight, the demise of a leader that oversaw the annihilation of those with an opposing view, the indiscriminate jailing of innocents, the separation of families, the censure of his people's freedom to speak, state sanctioned terrorism and the economic destruction of a once thriving &...

Jeb Bush urged Republicans to pursue "21st-century solutions" to issues Americans face and govern inclusively if they wish to improve the GOP's brand and build on recent party victories under the next administration. "Our party must be big-hearted and creative and opportunistic," the ex-White House hopeful, who was President-elect Trump's greatest rival for much of the GOP primary, wrote in a Friday op-ed for the Wall Street Journal. Bush declined to support Trump in the general election, often criticizing his lack of policy knowledge and foreign policy plans, though he now admits the incoming Republican president "successfully...

Asked by a friend if she would share her peach, the girl used a knife from her lunchbox to cut the fruit in half. Shortly after, she found herself in the principal's office, being coined a “threat” to her fellow students. School officials say the honor roll student violated a district rule by bringing the knife to school. Her parents, however, find it nonsensical that their daughter's small, dull butter knife qualifies as a “weapon.” Andrea Souto, the girl's mother,...

    While “White” American voters supported Trump at a rate of 56%, Cuban American voters went for the Republican candidate at a rate of 58%--or perhaps even higher. Gosh? What could possibly account for this phenomenon?Well, if the quip “you had to be there” applies anywhere, it’s in explaining the voting habits of Americans of Cuban heritage. By “there” I mean in a communist country—but not as a tourist! Not like the tens of thousands of (mostly pinko) Americans who’ve been visiting Cuba and filling the coffers of Cuba’s terror-sponsoring Stalinist rulers the past few years, thanks to Obama.No, instead...

    IRS data show the average income of taxpayers leaving Illinois surpassed the average income of taxpayers entering the state by $20,000 in 2014, a record loss for Illinois in the wake of the 2011 income-tax hike. Politicians enacted Illinois’ 2011 income-tax hike during a late-night legislative session in January 2011 and raised the state’s personal income-tax rate to 5 percent from 3 percent. This 67 percent income-tax hike lasted for four years, during which time Illinois experienced record wealth flight. IRS data reveal what happens when politicians choose short-term tax revenue gains over long-term stability. The short-term increase in tax...

    A Central Florida high school student got so mad about a Donald Trump sign that he punched one of his classmates in the face and then repeatedly cursed at and fought with school officials, according to the Palm Bay Police Department. The incident began Wednesday afternoon when Andre Hudson, a 17-year-old Bayside High School student, got into an argument with a classmate who was holding a Trump sign during gym class. Tensions escalated and Hudson punched his peer in the side of the face, police said.

    A Spirit Airlines passenger at Tampa International Airport was booted from his flight Sunday because he objected to a button worn by a black flight attendant that said, “Black Lives Matter, White Supremacy Kills.” “I said to her, ‘All lives matter,” passenger Robert Coyle told Tampa’s WTVT-13. “And she said, ‘I disagree with you. I disagree with you on so many levels.’ And then she went into some sort of memorized, ‘I really can’t speak politically while I am in uniform.'” That’s when Coyle took a photo of the button. The attendant said the picture violated airline rules and asked...

    When the man saw a patrol car parked on the exit ramp of a Florida interstate, he witnessed a scene too troubling to ignore: a sheriff deputy being slammed to the ground and beaten by a man in plain clothes. The passerby, whom the Lee County Sheriff’s Office is now calling a “Good Samaritan,” rushed to the two men, telling the attacker he would shoot him if he refused to stop beating the deputy. The attacker, later identified as 53-year-old Edward Strother, continued to pin down the deputy and attack him, and the deputy struggled to keep his weapon away from...

    Following her arrest at Sunday’s anti-Trump protest in Fort Lauderdale, Marah Lieberman wants to play the victim. She claims police mistreated her and falsely claimed she attacked pro-Trump folks. According to The New Times, Lieberman claims she was yelling a people chanting “build the wall.” “I didn’t put my hand on anybody. I didn’t touch anybody. I was just shouting,” Lieberman told New Times after posting bond Monday evening. “I got tackled on the ground. My back hurts, my wrists are sore, and my thumbs are still numb.” Video of the arrest shows a handcuffed Lieberman refusing to stand up...
  • What to Make of the New Study of Florida’s ‘Stand Your Ground’ Law

    First, the paper conflates “homicide” and “murder,” and thus cannot result in valid findings with respect to “murder” in particular or with public safety in general. Second, the study contrasts Florida’s Stand Your Ground law with a set of four purportedly non–Stand Your Ground states. One of the four states in the control set, however, routinely applies Stand Your Ground doctrine in much the same manner as does Florida. This failure of methodology substantively invalidates the paper’s findings, and should have been identified in peer review long before publication in JAMA. (The widespread defects in the peer-review process of even,...
