    Truncated title. Full title: Exclusive — Rep. Ron DeSantis: Paul Ryan’s GOP Leadership Team Fears Beltway Media, Isn’t Holding IRS Accountable Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), a conservative running for the GOP nomination to replace Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) in the U.S. Senate in November, called out his own party’s leadership for its failure to hold the IRS accountable, years after the agency refused to comply with congressional investigations into its targeting of conservative groups. DeSantis is part of a small group of conservatives in the House pushing to impeach IRS commissioner John Koskinen. He tells Breitbart News that House Speaker...

    Flopping Aces ^ | 05-29-13 | Dave The Sage
    Domesticated swine and Western Civilization go back a long way together. The domestic pig was being raised in Europe by about 1500 BC. Rome improved pig breeding and spread them throughout their empire. The early Christians increasingly abandoned the Jewish ban on the eating of pork by about 50 AD and it’s been the celebrated ‘other white meat’ ever since. Pigs and the discovery of the New World went hand in hand. Christopher Columbus took eight pigs on his voyage to Cuba in 1493 at Queen Isabella’s insistence. Hernando de Soto brought America’s first thirteen pigs to Tampa Bay, Fla.,...

    Ocala [FL] Star Banner ^ | July 8, 2012 | Fred Hiers
    Hernando De Soto's route through Florida is as elusive to modern archaeologists as the gold the famed Spanish explorer sought throughout the southeastern United States. Ever since De Soto's 600 men set foot on the shores of Tampa Bay, arriving from Cuba almost 500 years ago, historians have debated the exact direction of his failed treasure-hunting expeditions as far north as Tennessee and North Carolina. But in north Marion County, an archaeologist has found what his contemporaries deem rarer than the gold De Soto was seeking — physical evidence of the explorer's precise journey through Marion County and enough information...
  • America's First Christmas 1539, Tallahassee, Florida

    03/29/2012 2:30:01 PM PDT · by First Christmas · 4 replies
    The sixteenth century Spaniard, Hernando de Soto, is remembered by historians for his exploration of the southeastern United States, which began in Florida. A former mercenary soldier in the conquest of Central and South America, he hoped to increase his notoriety and fortune by leading an expedition through parts of North America. In the end, De Soto’s army spent over four years and covered 4,000 miles in its quest for gold and new territory to colonize. Neither resulted from his efforts. With approval from the Spanish Crown, De Soto assembled his expedition. He financed the endeavor himself with the understanding...

    A black doctor who was fired for supposedly inflammatory sermons unrelated to his medical work filed a lawsuit against the state of Georgia on Wednesday, claiming religious discrimination. This is particularly ironic, considering the governor of that state recently vetoed a religious liberty bill.Dr. Eric Walsh previously served on President Obama's Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS, was a board member of the Latino Health Collaborative, and started California's first city-run dental clinic for low-income families dealing with AIDS. Nevertheless, Walsh was fired only one week after being hired by Georgia's Department of Public Health. Right before Walsh was terminated, the...

    In a 5-2 ruling, the Florida Supreme Court on Friday issued a temporary block on enforcing the state’s 24-hour waiting period requirement for abortions. Florida is one of 27 states that require women seeking abortions to wait at least a day between seeing a doctor about an abortion and having it performed. Studies have shown that such laws are effective in changing the minds of women who do not enter an abortion facility already certain of their decision. A spokeswoman for Republican Governor Rick Scott, who signed the law, said they are reviewing the ruling, which was not on the...

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission said the 19-foot single-engine boat that Austin Stephanos and Perry Cohen, both 14, sailed off the coast of Jupiter on July 24 was found by a Norwegian supply boat on March 18 while on the way to Norway. The vessel was discovered about 100 miles off the coast of Bermuda, or about 1,000 miles from where Stephanos and Cohen were last...

    GOP front-runner Donald Trump says he'd like to bring Florida Sen. Marco Rubio into his campaign as part of his effort to unify the party. Trump already has the support of two of his vanquished foes: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson. "Frankly, Marco I'd love to have involved," Trump said Thursday on Fox News Channel's "Hannity." "This party has to unite," Trump said. "Then you're going to have the House and Senate." Rubio dropped out of the race after losing his home state of Florida, but has yet to endorse anyone. Trump also responded to...

    Last month, I wrote about some important legislation in Florida that would modernize that stateÂ’s harsh alimony and child custody laws. Florida is lagging behind many states which have updated these laws to reflect the fact that most women now work outside of the home and that children need both parents to thrive, regardless of whether their parents are living together or apart. Sadly, Florida Governor Rick Scott (R) capitulated to intense lobbying by liberal special interest groups and vetoed the bill. The bill had immense support, passing both houses of the Florida legislature by super-majority margins. The governorÂ’s office...

    The Miami real estate slowdown is becoming a meltdown — with the most expensive areas getting hit hardest. The number of sales and prices in posh Miami Beach — home to many of the city's most expensive and highest-profile properties — fell during the first quarter, according to a new report. Meanwhile, inventory soared by roughly a third compared with the prior-year quarter. The report, released Thursday by Douglas Elliman and Miller Samuel Real Estate Appraisers & Consultants, found the average sale price in Miami Beach and the nearby Barrier Islands fell 7.5 percent year over year to $905,252.

This includes people who though that African Americans should get an education. Kendi, a Professor of History at the University of Florida, argues that people can be both overtly and covertly racist. His definition of racist is "any concept that regards one racial group as inferior or superior to another racial group in any way." However, this includes people like William Lloyd Garrison, who advocated for social justice for black people...

The New York woman who stabbed another woman at a Miami art show last year claimed her vicious attack was motivated by paranoia about ISIS — a defense that has earned her deportation to her native China. Siyuan Zhao, 24, took a plea deal Thursday in a Miami court. She pleaded guilty, but instead of serving prison time, she will deport herself back home for treatment, the Miami Herald reported. Zhao’s psychiatrist told the court Zhao suffers from a mental illness and hears voices in her head.

The proposal, which will top the agenda during a meeting of the Rules panel at the RNC’s annual spring meeting in Hollywood Beach, Fla., would fundamentally alter how the convention is conducted, further empowering the delegates to determine the course of the proceedings. It amounts to not just a changing of the rules but of the rulebook itself, with far-reaching implications, potentially impacting whether party...

Since Rubio ended his presidential bid March 15, his network of party insiders has lined up behind Cruz to win delegates who'd vote for the Texas senator once they're no longer bound to Trump in a floor fight. Trump won Arkansas' GOP primary March 1 with 32.8 percent of the vote compared to Cruz's 30.5 percent and Rubio's 24.9 percent.

    One man could cause a budget crisis in New Jersey — by moving out of the state. Billionaire David Tepper has moved from New Jersey to Florida, and the loss of his income tax could leave a $140 million hole. The 58-year-old founder of the hedge fund Appaloosa Management — who Forbes estimates is worth $11.4 billion — registered to vote in Florida in October, listing a Miami Beach condo as his permanent address, and he filed a court document in December declaring himself a resident of the tax-friendly state. He also opened a branch of ­Appaloosa in South Beach,...
  • Florida’s Delegate Rules Could Boost Donald Trump at Contested Convention

    04/09/2016 7:25:13 PM PDT · by BlackFemaleArmyCaptain · 21 replies
    Florida may prove crucial to Donald Trump’s presidential hopes if the Republican nomination race goes to a contested convention. Under the state’s GOP rules, all of the 99 delegates Trump received when he won Florida’s March 15 primary must vote for him through the first three nominating ballots at a contested convention. That makes Florida unique. Thirty-one states and territories require Republican delegates to support the winner of a given primary or caucus only for the first ballot, according to the Republican National Committee. Seven require delegates to back the primary or caucus winner for the first two ballots. The...

    Rules changes to the Republican National Convention could happen as soon as two weeks from now. The Republican National Committee is gathering in Hollywood, Florida, for its spring meeting later this month. This quarterly gathering includes a, Contest Committee meeting, Debates Committee meeting, and Standing Committee meeting on the rules. This is the last time RNC members will gather before the party’s convention in Cleveland later in July. Ross Little Jr., a Republican National Committeeman from Louisiana and Convention Rules Committee member, told Fox News Channel’s Gretchen Carlson Thursday that “small tweaks” to the convention rules could happen at the...

    OK. So Trump looks like he might end up a few delegates short of 1237. Maybe, maybe not. If he were to offer the VP to Rubio, in exchange for his 171 delegates, he the would only need to get to 1066. He freezes out Cruz, he freezes out Kasich and rewards them for their machinations with a loss. He solidifies his vote in Florida by adding Cuban American voters and other Rubio supporters. He wins back some of the disaffected fedgov employees of NOVA that went for Rubio and improves his chances in VA. He somewhat assuages the establishment....

  • Marco Rubio clings to delegates — and hopes for Republican nomination

    Sen. Marco Rubio has fought to take the delegates he won to the Republican National Convention in July, leaving him in a position to be a power broker or even, if everything falls into place, to make another run at the top of the party’s presidential ticket. Under current rules, he doesn’t qualify to be considered for the presidential nomination — only Donald Trump has clearly met the threshold so far — but if the party starts looking beyond the billionaire businessman, Mr. Rubio could be in line. “You can see absolutely how it could play out,” said Chris Bravacos,...

    It starts like a joke — Gov. Rick Scott walks into a Gainesville Starbucks — but one patron wasn’t laughing. Scott stopped in at the coffee chain for a cup Tuesday after touring the recently opened factory and headquarters for biopharmaceutical company Nanotherapeutics. Cara Jennings, a former Lake Worth city commissioner, saw Scott in the downtown store and ripped into him, from her seat, over health insurance and cuts to women’s health services, and calling him an expletive
  • Florida Defends 24-Hour Waiting Period Law That Helps Women and Saves Babies From Abortion

    Abortion activists have not given up their fight to stop a Florida 24-hour waiting period law from taking effect. The 2015 law requires women to wait 24 hours between visits to an abortion facility before having an abortion. The waiting period gives women time to consider their options after their initial consultation at the abortion clinic and prevents them from being rushed into an irreversible decision. In February, the 1st District Court of Appeals ordered that the law take effect, overturning a block put in place by a circuit court judge, LifeNews reported. Abortion activists appealed the decision. This week,...
