    In his first address to U.S. troops, President Trump vowed Monday to defeat the “radical Islamic terrorists” abroad and to prevent terrorism from “taking root” in America. “Today we deliver a message in one, very unified voice to these forces of death and destruction: America and its allies will defeat you,” Mr. Trump said at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida, headquarters of the U.S. Central Command. “Freedom, security and justice will prevail.” The president called the troops “our heroes” and said his administration will provide them with better equipment and supplies to carry the fight to the extremists....

    A Spirit Airlines passenger at Tampa International Airport was booted from his flight Sunday because he objected to a button worn by a black flight attendant that said, “Black Lives Matter, White Supremacy Kills.” “I said to her, ‘All lives matter,” passenger Robert Coyle told Tampa’s WTVT-13. “And she said, ‘I disagree with you. I disagree with you on so many levels.’ And then she went into some sort of memorized, ‘I really can’t speak politically while I am in uniform.'” That’s when Coyle took a photo of the button. The attendant said the picture violated airline rules and asked...

    If Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is really down in the state of Florida as the statewide polls seem to suggest, then records could be set for his opponent Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on Election Day. Before a crowd of at least 20,000, according to some estimates, at the MidFlorida Amphitheatre in Tampa on Monday, supporters waited in long lines of traffic coming off Interstate 4 and paid a $10 parking fee to see the GOP nominee make his third appearance in a five-stop swing through the state of Fl

    Set-up nearly finished for 2016 GRPC I am writing from the Gun Rights Policy Conference (GRPC) in Tampa, Florida.  Got up at 0400 this morning in Dallas where I was visiting family.  The Dallas/Fort Worth airport was easy to get to, but if you are flying out of it,  research off-site parking.  The $24 a day inside the airport parking is a little stiff. Once inside, the ticket counter agent knew her gun protocol inside and out.  No problem.  The TSA agent did not need to X-ray.  Maybe an extra 5 minutes, max.  Going through the security screening a...

    A black rights advocate, often critical of Tampa police relations, was assisted by officers early Saturday morning after being robbed at gunpoint in Ybor City. Ali Muhammad is well known in the Bay Area community for calling attention to the need for police reform during the selection process of the police citizens review board. He also wants to put an end to black crime, encouraging community members to come forward after several deadly shootings. Muhammad became the victim of a black-on-black crime after a night of working as a DJ at a club in Ybor City. While walking down 8th...
  • THE REAL REASON GEN. ALLEN RESIGNED

    08/02/2016 3:34:44 PM PDT · by SoFloFreeper · 32 replies
    Marine Gen. John Allen, a 1976 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, served this country admirably for more than 36 years. Now he has announced he wants to retire. The 59 year-old former top officer in Afghanistan cited his wife's "chronic" illness and said he wants to devote more time to helping his beloved Kathy cope with serious health problems, including an undisclosed "auto-immune disorder." We join the vast majority of Americans who pray the general's wife will get better, and thank him for his service to this country. But one would have to be pathetically naive not to realize...

    “We all have to die, so why not die the Islamic way?” Sami Osmakac, a 25-year-old immigrant who plotted a suicide terror attack in Tampa,told a confidential informant.

Osmakac was arrested Saturday night, after receiving nonfunctioning guns and explosives from the FBI and making a martyrdom video. Although he initially planned to blow up a car bomb outside of Tampa’s nightlife district of Ybor City, he altered...

    Some people who know Republican presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump say he has two aspects: a thoughtful, charming private demeanor and an impulsive, inflammatory public persona. But now, two public images of Mr. Trump appear to be emerging: the scripted candidate who affirms conservative ideals and attacks presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, and the free-wheeling headliner at rallies who seems willing to hurl insults at any and all, even within his own party. The latter public version of Mr. Trump showed up on Saturday at campaign stops in Tampa, Fl., and Pittsburgh, Pa., offering a stark contrast from the more-restrained...
