    People were baffled. They reported what they felt and saw on social media. People from the Keys to Palm Beach County reported the shake. (Snip) It’s likely it was not something on earth, but in the stratosphere. According to Zach Covey, the meteorologist at the Sun Sentinel’s news partner WPEC-Ch. 12, it was the sonic boom of a military aircraft breaking the sound barrier offshore.

    The City of Weston even posted a tweet that reads, “In regard to the rumbling that people in Weston felt just earlier. There was NO explosion in #Weston. There are reports this was felt in several counties. We do not have definitive information on what caused it at this time.” A CBS4 viewer said in an email her “sliding glass doors and windows shook violently. I’m in West Kendall. Friends as faar south as marathon and Islamorada felt it and as far north as Davie and Lauderhill.” The United States Geological Survey is not reporting any activity in South Florida...

    A substitute teacher in a Florida school district telling her students that antifa was culpable for the U.S. Capitol riot has been fired, TMZ reports. A student at Bok Academy in Lake Wales, Florida caught the teacher’s rant on camera during a middle school language arts class, where she fraudulently alleged that three members of antifa were paid to attack the Capitol on Jan. 6, and were to blame for the violence. “We've had trouble with this all summer long,” the teacher says in the video. “There are peaceful demonstrations, we're fine, until a bunch of antifa members showed up...

    Ernest Hemingway look-alikes are being used by the Florida Keys tourism council to encourage visitors and residents to wear masks to protect against COVID-19. The men, a former winner and five regular contestants in Key West’s annual “Papa” Hemingway Look-Alike Contest, appear in a short video that debuted Monday evening on Keys’ social media outlets, urging compliance with coronavirus health protocols. “We look at Key West as being our adopted town,” said longtime contest entrant Dusty Rhodes in the video. “Help keep it safe. Wear your mask, socially distance, wash your hands.” The piece was shot in front of the...

    The state allows vaccinating nonresidents, which rankles some; ‘it lowers the numbers of vaccines available to people here’ Visitors from Toronto to New York to Buenos Aires have long flocked to Florida for sun, surf and shopping. Now they are coming for the Covid-19 vaccine. Some of the arrivals are Americans or foreigners who own second homes in the state and reside here part-time. Others are making short-term visits, seizing the opportunity provided by Florida’s decision to make the vaccine available to people age 65 and older, including nonresidents. The practice, which some are calling vaccine tourism, has drawn fire...

    Donald Trump’s children are exiting New York just as the city and other businesses cancel contracts with the Trump Organization following the riot at the Capitol. The latest to leave the city is Donald Trump Jr., The Post can report exclusively. Trump Jr., 43, will be moving to Florida — following in the footsteps of his little sister — with gal pal Kimberly Guilfoyle, 51, in tow. “There is no way they can stay in New York. They’d be tortured in the streets,” said a source close to the family. For now, Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle are looking at homes...

    PALMETTO BAY (CBSMiami) – Residents of the usually quiet South Florida community of Palmetto Bay are buzzing after spotting one of their neighbors riding his military style tank down residential roads. Many were confused by the sight and wondered if it’s even allowed and apparently it is. The tanks belong to the person who lives on a gated property off Old Cutler Road. Despite the fact that the tank is legal, it’s too close for comfort for some neighbors. “For the most part it’s unusual to say the very least and with the present state of politics, it’s concerning,” said...

    A manatee was found with the word “TRUMP” scrawled on its back in a Florida swimming hole, prompting an investigation from the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, reports said Monday. The defenseless animal was spotted with the political inscription over the weekend in the Blue Hole headwaters of the Homosassa River in Citrus County — about 80 miles northwest of Orlando, the Citrus County Chronicle reported. SNIP “It’s been my experience that this is very out of character for this community,” Craig Cavanna, a senior federal wildlife officer in charge of the investigation, told the outlet.

    The constitutional law scholar warned of the precedent such an impeachment would set Harvard Law professor emeritus and constitutional law scholar Alan Dershowitz said that while he does not believe it would result in a Senate trial, impeaching President Trump over what he said in an address prior to protesters storming the Capitol building on Wednesday would provide a "loaded weapon" to both parties to use at their will in the future. Speaking to Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures," Dershowitz first said that even if Trump is impeached for a second time, the Senate will not be able to hear...

He has shown that staying open is safe to do, that COVID can be managed while NOT nuking the economy and we need to band together to make sure he stays put. We KNOW that the incoming illegitimate president WILL be enacting federal mandates to destroy the economy, isolate us and revoke our civil liberties. We need to get prepared, we need to join together because we do more as a group than individually. Same goes for Matt Gaetz, who has been...

    Sen. Marco Rubio called for “honest reflection” in the conservative movement on Friday after a group of President Donald Trump’s supporters stormed Capitol Hill on Wednesday. “For those of us on the center-right of American politics, now is the time that calls for honest reflection,” he said in a video posted to social media. Rubio reminded Trump supporters that the Republican Party won the House, the Senate, and the White House in 2016 but lost their majorities in all three federal houses of power in four years.

    Where would you rather live, Florida or New York? It’s a simple question with a basic, easy answer: Florida. But liberal elites hate the Sunshine State and love the Empire State, so the pictures being painted in the media of the two states are unrecognizable. Florida has about 2 million more people than New York, 21.5 million to 19.5 million, yet it has no state income tax. New York’s tax rate ranges from 4 percent to 8.82 percent, New York City has its own tax rate ranging from 3.078 percent to 3.876 percent. Someone making a good living in New...

    The entire pretext for shutting down our liberties is built upon misinformation.. We are being told that our liberties must be suspended in order to keep hospitals from reaching apocalyptic levels. But what if those levels are just above normal and not anywhere near apocalyptic levels? And what if these lockdown measures do nothing to keep the levels down anyway? Well, if there is anywhere we can cross-check this hypothesis, it would be in Florida, where there is no lockdown or mask mandate. In fact, people are flocking there from out of state to enjoy vacations and host conferences and...
  • Governor DeSantis just keeps getting better

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has shown real star quality throughout 2020, thanks to his temperate handling of the Wuhan virus. He refused to put his state into lockdown but still managed to keep Florida from turning into a Wuhan virus nightmare. On Monday, he also proved that he knows how to handle the hostile media. Other Republican politicians would do well to follow his lead.
