    In a precursor to next week’s special Senate session to decide if Scott Israel should get his job back as Broward County sheriff, parents of the students murdered in the Parkland school shooting on Monday urged and warned state senators not to do it. “His lack of leadership and poor training of his rank and file played a role in the death of Nick and the injury of my other son,” Mitch Dworet said in front of an assembly of news cameras at the Parkland substation of the Broward Sheriff’s Office. “I say to any politician, 'Look to your conscience...

    During the Democrat debate Thursday night, Jorge Ramos challenged Joe Biden on his immigration record, particularly his past support for a border wall, and the Obama-Biden administration's record on deportations. "Why should Latinos trust you?" Ramos asked."What Latinos should look at is ... comparing [Trump] to [Obama] is outrageous," Biden said. "Number one, we didn't lock up people up in cages, we didn't separate families... we didn't do all of those things."Umm, Joe... yes, you did.

    When staff at Westglades Middle School heard that Nikolas Cruz had committed the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS, some couldn’t believe it. The fact that he was a mass murderer wasn’t what surprised them, but rather the fact that he had attended that school. “How is that possible?” one Westglades educator recalled thinking. “We did our jobs. It took forever, but we got him [to the specialized school] where he needed to go. We couldn’t believe they ever let him into [Stoneman].” Westglades students and staff had never seen anyone like Nikolas Cruz. One student, Paige, recalled the time...

    Florida lawmaker wants to stop men from voting on measures to protect unborn babies from abortion. Lauren Book, a pro-abortion Democrat and state senator, recently introduced a state constitutional amendment that would ban Florida lawmakers from restricting abortion unless at least half of the legislators are women, according to the New York Daily News. Because Book’s bill, state Senate Bill 60, is a constitutional amendment, it would have to be approved by state voters as well as the legislature. “No vote about us without us,” Book told the Tallahassee Democrat. “Seeing what state legislatures across the country have done, I...

    In yet another CNN attempt to make people from south of D.C. look stupid and racist, Anderson Cooper and his crew gathered up eight Republican women from Texas and tried to harass them into agreeing that the president said a racist thing by telling AOC and her cronies to leave America if they don't like it.It went hilariously sideways. I especially like the part where the CNN "reporter" asks the leading question, "don't you think that's racist?" in a condescending and outraged tone.
