    One of the Parkland school shooting survivors is calling on tourists to boycott the State of Florida for spring break as a way to get legislators’ attention focused on gun control. “Let's make a deal DO NOT come to Florida for spring break unless gun legislation is passed,” David Hogg, a Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student who is a leader in the #neveragain movement, posted on Twitter on Saturday. Hogg said he hoped his tweet would make state politicians listen if the “billion-dollar tourism industry in Florida” makes gun control measures a priority. “If the legislators aren’t going to...

    THE author of the explosive new Donald Trump biography Fire And Fury has taken his cue from the title and stormed out of an Australian breakfast TV interview. Appearing in an interview with Ben Fordham on Today, Michael Wolff - crossing from London - was grilled on a range of topics relating to the US President, from gun control to North Korea. But it was when talk turned to Trump’s alleged infidelities that it all went south. “You said during a TV interview last month that you are absolutely sure that Donald Trump is currently having an affair, while President,...

    – Authorities say a man accused of riding a horse on a freeway in Southern California was arrested for driving under the influence. The California Highway Patrol says Luis Perez of Placentia had a blood-alcohol level of more than double the legal limit when they allege he took his horse on the 91 Freeway. “We get a chuckle out of the interesting situations we encounter from time to time, but one thing the CHP does not do is ‘horse’ around with DUI,” the CHP said on its Twitter account.

    Dtube ^ | 2/22/18 | Dustin Nemos
    This 3:42 minute video, posted by Dustin Nemos on Dtube, describes the swift retaliation by Google to silence EFFECTIVE conservative voices on Youtube. Especially, young, hip voices that are capable of reaching the young, digital native population that is currently being exploited by the MSM and Co. In response, two savvy hipsters, Dustin and Isaac Green, are re-directing to DTube in order to carry on with their mission. This may spell trouble for Youtube, as these guys are leading the way for a paradigm shift toward open sourced, de-centralized platforms. Is Youtube on a suicide mission?Censoring/banning is very difficult on...

    CHARLESTOWN, Ky. (WDRB) -- The students at Charlestown High School have won a lot of awards and accolades over the years, but senior Alexis Taylor's latest accomplishment can't fit in a trophy case: She's Clark County, Indiana's newest deputy coroner and she's just 18 years old. "Anytime that we have an autopsy, I try to get there when I can. It all kind of depends on my school schedule," Taylor said. "I have to remember, no I'm still in high school. I still have a lot ahead of me." Looking to add to her senior year course load, Taylor started the school...

    Last week the nation watched in horror as the body count of Broward school children and staff doubled by the minute. The very next day the FBI admitted they had failed to act on a vital lead that explicitly detailed the mass murderer's intentions to kill people at his school. Immediately, Florida Gov. Rick Scott called for FBI Director Christopher Wray to resign in the wake of the Parkland school shooting. While the FBI apologized and issued a standard vague statement, Gov. Scott said Wray must resign, saying acknowledging a mistake “isn’t going to cut it..” "An apology will never...

    Florida Gov. Rick Scott is facing a growing number of calls to remove the Broward County sheriff from his position over the department’s response to the high school shooting that left 17 people dead. State Rep.

    Goen Gao runs a tourism company for Chinese visitors called Hawaii Lulutrip, and a side business called HI Baby USA Center, which helps pregnant women from China to safely deliver babies in Hawaii. The side business is part of maternity tourism, a growing business sector in Hawaii, California and other parts of the U.S. in which pregnant Chinese women travel to the U.S. to give birth so their children become American citizens and can get American passports. But the service is not cheap: A baseline package for three months is $33,000, according to the HI Baby USA Center website, which...
