    The former Obama officials who manufactured a media “echo chamber” to sell the Iran deal are now working to undermine a bombshell report that revealed how former President Barack Obama’s administration derailed its own Drug Enforcement Agency’s efforts to stop Islamist terrorist group Hezbollah from developing a global narcotics syndicate. The Obama administration gave Hezbollah a pass, according to a bombshell Politico piece, in order to protect the Iran deal — one of the few remaining pillars of Barack Obama’s legacy. Two Republicans on the House oversight committee, Florida Rep. Ron DeSantis and Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan announced a congressional...

    It’s Christmastime at Mar-a-Lago. President Donald Trump touched down about 1:35 p.m. Friday at Palm Beach International Airport, just hours after he signed the most sweeping tax reform legislation in decades. He also signed a stopgap measure that will avert a government shutdown and add $4 billion for missile defense.

    Nightmare Before Christmas: Trump Re-Nominates Architect of Obama’s LGBT Agenda Chai Feldblum to EEOC. ( Full title ). President Donald Trump has re-nominated radical sexual identity activist Chai Feldblum, the architect of former resident Barack Obama’s LGBT agenda, to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Feldblum is a nightmare of a nominee for those who value religious freedom, private property rights, and the science-based standard that there are two sexes – male and female. As Obama’s most liberal gender ideology activist, Feldblum has said that whenever LGBT issues conflict with religious liberty and private property rights, religious liberty and private...

    BROOKSVILLE — A last-minute lawsuit may put the brakes on the long-awaited extension of the Suncoast Parkway north into Citrus County. Construction was slated to begin early next year. At a Hernando-Citrus Metropolitan Planning Organization meeting last week, city and county officials talked about a push at the state level to move the project ahead even faster. A ground-breaking ceremony was in the works. But like other steps in the process of building the toll road extension known as Suncoast Parkway 2, within days of that discussion, another shoe dropped. On Dec. 15, the Friends of Etna Turpentine Camp, Inc.,...

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- "We know what happened to Mike Williams. He was murdered." F.D.L.E. Special Agent Mark Perez made that announcement during a press conference Wednesday afternoon. He said authorities notified Williams' family the morning of. Williams went missing December 16, 2000. The 31-year-old left his home in Tallahassee to go duck hunting on Lake Seminole in Jackson County, and never returned. Perez said, "After receiving new information, FDLE's crime scene unit and special agents spent days conducting an extensive search in an undisclosed location. That search led to the recovery of human remains."

    Republican establishment-types in the House, as well as congressional Democrats, say they are close to finalizing a bipartisan amnesty plan for as many as 3.5 million illegal aliens. In a comment to the Hill, Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) said a group of House Republicans and Democrats were swiftly crafting an amnesty to push for passage either this week or at the beginning of the new year. “We’ve had very good meetings here with the Problem Solvers Caucus — [Rep.] Will Hurd [R-Texas] has been working on a potential compromise with some Democrats as well, so we could see something as...

    Tribune Review (Suburban Pittsburgh) ^ | 19 December 2017 | New York Daily News
    I'm not sure, but more diversity in ownership would be a good start. At some point, people need to realize just how deeply embedded this culture of inequality is within the NFL. Texans owner Bob McNair thinks player protests are like “inmates running the prison,” and Giants owner John Mara would rather re-sign a domestic abuser than deal with the “emotional mail” from fans over signing Colin Kaepernick. Martha Ford of the Detroit Lions is one of the few female owners in the league, and even she tried to pay her players to stop kneeling earlier this season. Shahid Khan...

  • Sen. John McCain returns to Arizona, will miss vote on GOP tax bill

    epublican Sen. John McCain is returning to Arizona after spending several days in a Maryland hospital recovering from side effects from chemotherapy treatment for brain cancer, CBS News has learned. McCain left Washington Sunday and is heading back to his home state to spend the holidays with his family. He will not be on hand for the final vote on the GOP tax passage expected for early this week. It is unclear when McCain might return to Washington. Despite a razor-thin margin needed to pass the measure, McCain's presence will not likely be the determining factor in the vote. Two...
  • Final Tax Bill Contains Language Allowing Illegal Immigrants To Get Tax Credit

    Daily Caller ^ | Dec 16, 2017 | ALEX PFEIFFER
    The Republican tax reform package agreed upon by House and Senate lawmakers contains language allowing illegal immigrants with American citizen children to get a tax credit. The final GOP tax bill doubles the child tax credit from $1,000 to $2,000 and increases the amount of the refundable child tax credit to $1,400. This policy change geared towards helping working class families was pushed by Republican Sen. Marco Rubio. The conference bill includes language from the Senate tax plan that allowed parents of so-called “anchor babies” to receive the tax credit. “In order to receive the child tax credit (i.e., both...

    LAKE WORTH A Bobcat construction vehicle hauled by a large tow truck hit the 10th Avenue North overpass on Interstate 95 on Wednesday morning. The crash damaged the bridge, snarled northbound traffic on the highway for hours and shut down all eastbound lanes on 10th Avenue North, authorities said. Barbara Keller, a spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Transportation, said a combination front-end loader and backhoe struck a beam on the overpass. The backhoe was extended upward and that’s what damaged the concrete beam, she said. No other vehicles were involved and there were no injuries in the crash, according...

    The congestion and construction on Interstate 95 are frustrating enough, but navigating the dramatically uneven lanes that make your car shimmy, shake and swerve into neighboring lanes is downright dangerous. Yet as the Sun Sentinel’s Wayne Roustan reported Sunday, the Florida Department of Transportation says we’re going to have to endure this nightmare through parts of Broward and Palm Beach counties until 2024. Come on, FDOT. You’re killing us. Well, we can’t really say you’re killing us because, believe it or not, state transportation officials can’t tell us how many accidents have occurred during the construction of the I-95 express...
