    President Trump’s re-election campaign announced Friday that he will host a rally in Pensacola, Florida, at the end of next week. Michael Glassner, executive director of Trump's re-election campaign, announced the event hours after former national security adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about Trump transition team contacts with Russia. Glasser said, however, that the timing “could not be better,” as Congress nears passage of tax cut legislation. “As the President’s historic tax reform plan, which he has said will be like rocket fuel in our economy, gets closer to passage, the timing for our campaign...

    Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) was denied membership into the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. Is it a shocker? No. It has all-Democratic members, but former Rep. Allen West (R-FL) was able to become a member of the Congressional Black Caucus. Also, Curbelo could have joined the Republican alternative, the Congressional Hispanic Conference. Whatever the reasons, there’s another that we also probably should have known as to why he was rejected: The all-Democratic Congressional Hispanic Caucus says they use their meetings to strategize against Trump (via Business Insider): . . .

    Illegal immigration costs taxpayers in all 50 states a total of $89 billion, and California, where an illegal on Thursday was cleared of murdering Kate Steinle despite admitting to the shooting, pays the most at $23 billion . ... The costs cover added expenditures for education, welfare, law enforcement, and medical care. When federal costs are included, the price tag nationally soars to $135 billion a year. FAIR’s data also includes the offset of taxes paid by illegal immigrants, though the numbers are much lower. In the state and local column, they are $3.5 billion. Nationally they are $15 billion....

    Former Alaskan Governor and Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin says the illegal alien acquitted of fatally shooting 32-year-old Kate Steinle in the sanctuary city of San Francisco, California, in 2015, was given “more rights, grace and favor” than his victim and her family. ....In an interview with a local news station in 2015, Lopez-Sanchez confessed that he sought out San Francisco because it was a sanctuary city that would not deport him from the U.S. “Sanchez said he knew San Francisco was a sanctuary city where he would not be pursued by immigration officials,” the local report added.

    The husband of former Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz is being accused of trying to rip off an elderly commercial property owner and threatening him in the process, according to a lawsuit recently filed in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Banker Steve Schultz, husband of the scandal-prone U.S. Congresswoman for 26 years, allegedly tried to have 70-year-old investor Frank DiMaria hand over the deed of his troubled $4 million-commercial property in Pompano Beach, Florida, to Schultz personally, according to the complaint obtained exclusively by

    When Hurricane Irma hit Florida in September, it claimed the lives of 134 people and laid waste to $65 billion worth of property. But for Republicans here, it was another hurricane that could wreck their chances of future electoral success. Hurricane Maria struck the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico two weeks after Irma, wiping out much of the island’s drinking water and power grid, and prompting thousands of Puerto Ricans to flee the island. More than 140,000 have landed in Florida so far, and the vast majority are expected to remain in the Sunshine State. The influx of Puerto Ricans...

    WEST PALM BEACH — What promised to be a salacious trial probing billionaire Jeffrey Epstein’s sexual relationships with underage girls won’t get underway next week as planned. Citing the many unanswered legal questions that still swirl around the 8-year-old civil lawsuit pitting attorney Bradley Edwards against the 64-year-old Palm Beach convicted sex offender, Palm Beach County Circuit Judge Donald Hafele agreed to delay the trial until March. “Under the circumstances of this unusual and relatively complex case, the court finds that there are simply too many significant, lengthy motions that are pending and need to be heard prior to December...

    The man suspected in the serial killings that terrorized a Tampa neighborhood for two months worked at a McDonald's -- and on the day of his arrest, brought a loaded gun to work in a McDonald's bag. Donaldson was arrested at the McDonald's after police received a tip about the gun -- the same gun that was used in the four killings, according to authorities. The suspect, who had previously attended St. John's University in New York City, reportedly brought a loaded .40-caliber Glock to the restaurant and asked a co-worker to hold it while he was getting a payday...

    President Trump dredged up a notorious old mystery with his latest bomb at NBC, citing the bizarre death 16 years ago of a young female staffer in the office of then-congressman and current “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough. The story of Lori Klausutis has dogged Scarborough on the Internet since she was found dead in his Florida district office on July 19, 2001. Although Scarborough was out of town — and the medical examiner later ruled she had died after falling and hitting her head on a desk — conspiracy theorists have long speculated, with no reliable evidence, that Scarborough...

    A Florida Gulf Coast University course titled “White Racism” has sparked an ongoing debate surrounding its intent, though the instructor continues to defend it in the face of criticism. The course initially drew media attention in October, but critics and commentators have continued to spar over its legitimacy, with some describing it as hostile towards white people, and others—especially its instructor, Dr. Ted Thornhill—defending it as necessary.

    The Supreme Court declined to take up two Second Amendment cases on Monday, which challenged laws banning assault weapons and open-carry in Maryland and Florida. Both cases were denied review without comment from the justices, which left the lower court rulings in place. In the Florida challenge, the state Supreme Court upheld Florida’s ban on open carry finding the Second Amendment doesn’t guarantee a right to open carry.
