The Palm Beach Post reports that Lake Worth residents received the message during a power outage Sunday. The alert warned that more than 7,000 customers lost power "due to extreme zombie activity."

  • Glenn Beck Sours on Cruz: I Should Have Backed Rubio

    In a long and often rambling discussion following a contentious interview on Monday with Senator Ted Cruz, radio host Glenn Beck criticized the Texas Senator’s justifications for finally endorsing Republican nominee Donald Trump. The radio talker even declared at one point that he should have backed Senator Marco Rubio for president, instead of throwing his full support to Cruz in the GOP primary. Beck grilled Cruz over his decision to back Trump after declining to do so on principle when he suspended his campaign and when he addressed the RNC convention in Cleveland. “This weekend, you wouldn’t answer the question...

    After enthusiastically endorsing and campaigning for Ted Cruz in the 2016 Republican presidential primary, radio talk show host Glenn Beck admitted he made an error and said he should have supported Marco Rubio instead. Beck had just finished a contentious interview with Cruz, in which he quizzed the Texas Senator about supporting Donald Trump after making a public show of not endorsing him. “For the very first time I heard Ted Cruz calculate,” he said after the commercial break. “And when that happened, the whole thing fell apart for me,” he continued. “And it’s my fault. It’s my fault for...
  • Florida judge rules ballots were illegally destroyed in Wasserman Schultz race

    **SNIP** Circuit Judge Raag Singhal decided that the records were wrongly destroyed because the laws require elections offices to keep the ballots in federal elections for 22 months. Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes destroyed the ballots just after 12 months, the Sun-Sentinel reported. The judge also noted that because the ballots were subject to a lawsuit, only a court order should have allowed their destruction. Snipes “has not presented any evidence refuting that the public records sought were destroyed while this case was pending before this court,” Singhal said.

    Does Bill Nelson's understated public persona and record in the U.S. Senate help or hurt him as he faces a barrage of TV ads by his opponent, Gov. Rick Scott, that aims to define who Nelson is? You've probably heard: Bill Nelson flew to space. Thirty-two years ago. To this day, that's how many people identify the Florida Democrat — now a three-term Senator, he blasted off on space shuttle Columbia as a 43-year-old Congressman — underscoring that for all the flamboyance of the mission, Nelson has been long grounded in the vanilla center of politics. "He's like the old...

    GOP seeks farm bill support amid immigration debate House Freedom Caucus members are trying to flex some muscle on immigration in exchange for support on the farm bill; A sprawling and subsidy-packed farm bill that also would have tightened food stamp rules failed in the House on Friday, in a dramatic defeat for GOP leaders who faced an uprising from conservatives over inaction on immigration. The farm bill, which was voted down 213-198, had been hanging in the balance as the conservative House Freedom Caucus threatened to withhold support without an agreement on an immigration bill vote. The GOP leadership,...

    Florida police shot a man early this morning who opened fire at a Miami-area golf resort owned by President Donald Trump, authorities said.

He then fired shots into the ceiling and at chandeliers while apparently waiting for police to arrive, according to authorities. Four officers from the Doral Police Department and one officer from the Miami-Dade Police Department responded to the incident after receiving a 911 call around...

    Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) had stern words for the National Rifle Association on Tuesday, responding to the gun group’s new president attacking student survivors of the shooting in Parkland, Florida, for allegedly engaging in “civil terrorism.” “The NRA is kind of just shy of a terrorist organization,” Schultz told HuffPost. “They have done everything they can to perpetuate the culture of violence that we have in our country with the spread of assault weapons across the nation.” In an interview with The Washington Times last week, newly elected NRA president Oliver North accused students of Parkland’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas...
