    A few days before Christmas last year, after he was elected to the U.S. Senate but before hed left Tallahassee for Washington, former Florida Gov. Rick Scott gave a $16 million gift to Orange County. It was a grant to help pay for an extension of Kirkman Road in the countys International Drive tourism corridor, and it had been pulled from a pot of economic development money known as the Florida Job Growth Grant Fund. It was the biggest grant Scott had ever awarded through the fund, which he and the Florida Legislature established in 2017 amid promises to end...

  • Fact-Checkers Of Trumps Orlando Speech Show AOC-Level Ineptitude

    A PolitiFact fact-check of President Trumps campaign launch last week in Orlando that was run in newspapers nationwide went horribly, embarrassingly, laughably wrong on the one count in which they ruled Trump was wrong. PolitiFact did their usual number after Trumps speech, supposedly fact-checking the President. In it, there are assumptions made that highlight the normal bias. But the only fact-checked statement these intrepid journalists ruled as wrong they got totally wrong. Heres what PolitiFact wrote that Trump got wrong: (We passed) the biggest tax cut in history. Wrong. Trump often repeats this point, but three tax cuts were...

Bruce Kesler posted the photo above taken by his son at the rally here at Maggies Farm. Bruce also quoted Trump on the opposition: Our radical Democrat opponents are driven by hatred, prejudice and rage. They want to destroy you and they want to destroy our country as we know it. Not acceptable. Its not going to happen. Im pretty sure a good time was had by all in attendance with the exception of the...

    ORLANDO, Fla.The state dubbed it the I-4 Ultimate for its grand scope. For some here, its more like the ultimate headache. A reconstruction of 21 miles of congested interstate highway through the heart of Orlando will build or rebuild 140 bridges, redesign 15 interchanges, move exits and add new toll lanes, in a $2.3 billion project to smooth traffic through one of the nations fastest-growing cities. Dense cities have grown up around the aging freeways, hemming them in so that expensive engineering feats are needed to do work on them. Yet work is often unavoidable. I-4, for instance, was built...

    Prosecutors were forced to drop criminal charges against a South Florida woman accused of stealing five Rolex watches four of which were found inside her vagina during a jail strip search. Delajurea Brookens, 29, beat the grand-theft charge earlier this month when the victim, an Orlando businessman named Ramon Diaz, stopped cooperating with prosecutors. So what happens to the watches? Diaz only had proof of ownership of one Rolex, according to the Miami-Dade State Attorneys Office. The rest will remain in the property room at the Miami Springs police department until someone files a motion with the court to...

    ORLANDO, Fla.As the crowds poured into the Amway Center, The Epoch Times asked Trump supporters a few questions about the presidents achievements and what he has to do to win over swing voters. What is the single most significant thing Trump has done since taking office? Our economy; I think its thriving. Theres plenty of jobs. Obviously, there are way more jobs than there are people to fill them. Which is a good thing, because everyone should have access to a job of some sort. What do you think Trump needs to do to win over swing voters for 2020?

    Democrats should not delude themselves: unless they shape up and fast the president is heading for four more years On Tuesday night President Trump launched his re-election campaign with a by now classic rally in Orlando, Florida. It was a Greatest Hits rally in which he accused the Democrats of undermining democracy (by trying to impeach him), talked about the many threats to this country as we know it, and even railed against Hillary Clinton (for old times sake). In short, Trumps message for 2020 is: I made America Great Again, now vote for me so I can...

    President Donald Trump kicked off his formal reelection campaign Tuesday night with a rally in Orlando. His 76-minute speech featured more than 15 false statements, many of them ones that he's repeated frequently in the past. Here's a fact check: ENERGY Trump boasted about his administration's energy policies. "And we've ended the last administration's cruel and heartless law on American energy. What they were doing to our energy should never be forgotten. The United States is now the number-one producer of oil and natural gas anywhere in the world." "We are, by the way, the number-one producer of energy in...

    ORLANDO, Fla. Next week, President Donald Trump will hold a rally in Orlando, where he will officially announce his re-election campaign for 2020. Many people might be wondering why the president picked Orlando for the special occasion. The rally will be held Tuesday at the Amway Center, and experts say the I-4 corridor tends to be the deciding factor because the Panhandle is red, and South Florida is blue. The rally starts Tuesday at 8 p.m., but there will be a street party outside the Amway Center at 10 a.m. Click here for information on the event, scheduled to...
