    A recent report in Florida shows that over 40% of the state’s Covid-19 deaths may not merit that classification. According to Dr. Andrew Bostom at a Florid House of Representatives report covered an investigation of the COVID-19 deaths reported in Florida: The Florida House investigators stressed that “nearly 60% [8,058/13.920] of the [COVID-19] records classified by the Department of Health,” had “errors,” or were “recorded in a manner inconsistent with state and national guidance.” They also provided evidence, as noted earlier, that ~10% [1,256] of these alleged Covid-19 deaths were misclassified.I maintain this latter ~10% estimate is far too...

    BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WMBB) — If you’re prone to losing your wallet or leaving your driver’s license behind, there will soon be another way to carry your ID. The state of Florida is getting ready to roll out a new mobile ID system. “We expect it to grow pretty quickly and become pretty popular,” said Bay County Tax Collector, Chuck Perdue. “It seems to be very successful, very well received around the country.” Florida is one of about a dozen states throughout the country introducing the new system, in which a resident with a valid driver’s license can access their...
  • Reports that Trump Lost Support in Florida’s Villages Are Greatly Exaggerated

    Last week, the Associated Press published a story, without any real data, that Trump’s support at The Villages is waning. They interviewed a handful of people and declared the retirement community a warning sign for Trump, that he’s losing the senior vote. Sumter County, home of The Villages retirement community, reported early votes this evening. 71.2% of the early votes were cast by registered Republicans. 16.1% cast by Democrats.

    A record-breaking surge of mail-voting Democrats in Florida has handed Joe Biden a massive lead over President Donald Trump in his must-win home state. But here come the Republicans. The start of in-person voting Monday is expected to trigger a conservative wave that will build over the next two weeks and crest on Election Day. Around two-thirds of participating Florida GOP voters are likely to cast a ballot in person this fall, raising the question of whether Biden, the Democratic presidential nominee, will be able to hold off a Trump comeback by the time the polls close at 7 p.m....

    Former Vice President Joe Biden’s lead shrunk in Hillsborough County since the last poll conducted in late September, according to a new survey from St. Pete Polls released Saturday. The latest poll shows Biden with a 9-point lead over Donald Trump in the county at 53% to 44%. The previous poll, by the same pollsters, showed Trump with a 13 point deficit in the county at 55% to 42%. ... ... One of the biggest take-aways from the latest poll is the crossover appeal for both candidates. In the Sept. 29 poll, Biden claimed 16% support from Republican voters, a...

    Kevin McCullough is predicting 333 electoral votes for Donald Trump and 208 for Joe Biden. Biden wins Washington, Oregon, California, Colorado, Illinois. He wins Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maine, and — not, New Hampshire. Not New Hampshire. Vermont. And everything else on this map is red. Pennsylvania is red. Ohio is red. Florida is red. Arizona’s red. Texas is red. Nevada is red. Arizona is red. Now, he hasn’t been wrong since 2006. And, by the way, have you heard people saying, “Man, this year feels a lot like 2016”? Meaning,...

The association made its endorsement in a press conference, thanking Trump for his “support of law enforcement, public safety and law and order.” “President Trump’s support of law enforcement is unmatched, and he continues to support law enforcement by ensuring we have the tools, training and information we need to protect our communities,” a spokesman said during the announcement.

    The crater just keeps getting bigger. The big sink hole in Pasco County just keeps growing, expanding and collapsing. The depression in New Port Richey, Florida continues to expand at a rapid rate, very unusual for geologists. The hole opened on Monday at a few-feet deep but has grown to 50 – 75 feet deep and more than 30 feet wide! “The speed of it opening and the speed of it still spreading, that makes it unusual,” said Emergency Management Director Andrew Fossa. Nearby, The Varsity Club has been evacuated and shut down. County crews erected a fence around the...

    Florida this weekend President Donald Trump is said by his doctor to be making progress in his recovery from COVID-19 — and the president tweets that he's eager to get back on the trail. TAMPA, Fla. (WFTS) -- It appears COVID-19 will no longer slow President Donald Trump's campaign trail. President Trump said during an interview with FOX News' Sean Hannity that the president is hoping to hold a rally in Florida on Saturday night if his campaign team has enough time to put it together. President Trump's push for a rally comes just days after he was hospitalized for...

    Florida's Hispanic voters are fleeing the Democratic Party and there's little indication that the trend might reverse post-2020. MIAMI, Fla. — Democrats are on track to lose Florida in November, and there’s little indication that the Sunshine State will turn reliably bluefor the foreseeable future.As of this writing, RealClearPolitics’ latest aggregate of Florida polls shows former Vice President Joe Biden leading President Donald Trump by about two points, well within the margin of error for most polls. This time four years ago, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was up by three points and still lost the state’s 29 critical...
  • Governor DeSantis says closing schools in spring a mistake (equated people fighting the return of students to classrooms as the “flat earthers of our day.”)

    Gov. Ron DeSantis said Friday that closing school campuses in the spring as the coronavirus pandemic took hold might have been one of the nation’s biggest “public health mistakes.” And, while appearing on the Drew Steele radio show, DeSantis equated people fighting the return of students to classrooms as the “flat earthers of our day.” Florida shut down school and college campuses in March, with students shifted to online learning. DeSantis and Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran have pushed heavily to reopen classrooms for the new school year. “In March we may not have had all the information, but in hindsight,...

    Former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg and his team have raised more than $16 million to pay the court fines and fees of nearly 32,000 Black and Hispanic Florida voters with felony convictions, an effort aimed at boosting turnout for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. The money will go to fund a program organized by the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition to pay the fines, fees and restitution costs for former prisoners who are already registered to vote in Florida but barred by law from participating in the election because of those outstanding debts. Bloomberg, who has committed at least $100...

    Florida counties and cities that cut funding from their police departments could lose out on state funding and grants. Gov. Ron DeSantis put forward a proposal for the Combatting Violence, Disorder and Looting and Law Enforcement Protection Act on Monday, which in part targets communities looking to take part in the “Defund the Police” movement. The act “prohibits state grants or aid to any local government that slashes the budget for law enforcement services.” If passed, it would also increase possible criminal penalties for protestors if gatherings turn violent, result in property damage or cause road blockage. The proposal states...
  • Republican Governor (De Santis of Florida) Pushes Crackdown on Rioting That Would Allow Drivers to Run Over ‘a Mob’ without Liability

    Law & Crime ^ | September 21, 2020 | Matt Naham
    Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis pushed legislation that he described as “bold” on Monday. Judging by the plain text of the proposal and the responses to it, bold is an understatement. Under the “new criminal offenses” section established by the would-be Combatting Violence, Disorder and Looting and Law Enforcement Protection Act, DeSantis declared it a third-degree felony to obstruct traffic during an “unpermitted protest, demonstration or violent or disorderly assembly.” Notably, the next clause purports to remove liability for injury or death a driver causes if that driver is “fleeing for safety from a mob. Former Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum...
