    Democratic lawyers were "descending on" the state in a calculated attempt to "change the results" and "try and steal" several statewide races..."So, it has been over 48 hours since the polls closed and Broward and Palm Beach Counties are still finding and counting ballots – and the Supervisors – Brenda Snipes and Susan Bucher – cannot seem to say how many ballots still exist or where these ballots came from, or where they have been," Scott said...Earlier this year, a judge found that Snipes had illegally destroyed ballots in a 2016 congressional contest,...

    A U.S. appeals court has ruled that President Trump’s decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is likely unlawful. The decision from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals blocks Trump from terminating DACA protections for undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, upholding a lower court’s decision. The ruling comes in response to a challenge from several individual DACA recipients; the states of California, Maine, Maryland and Minnesota; and the University of California regents. The court said it has concluded that the acting secretary of Homeland Security was wrong to conclude that the policy...

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85, fractured three ribs in a fall in her office Wednesday night, according to a statement from the Supreme Court’s public information office. “Tests showed that she fractured three ribs on the left side,” the statement said. She was taken to George Washington University Hospital. Ginsburg has survived several fights with cancer and had heart surgery in 2014, according to CNBC. She has beaten pancreatic and colon cancer, the two deadliest forms of the disease. People, especially younger people, were offering the octogenarian affectionately known as RBG their own ribs on social media Thursday...
  • “Catholics” for Choice ...Abortionists Call Pope Francis a “Villain” for Opposing Abortion

    11/08/2018 7:06:21 PM PST · by Mrs. Don-o · 9 replies ^ | Nov 7, 2018 | Joshua Gill
    Catholics for Choice decried Pope Francis as a “villain” in an open letter signed by 50 abortion providers over his comparison of abortion to contract killing. Catholics for Choice published the letter Wednesday in response to an address Francis delivered in St. Peter’s Square on October 10 in which he said abortion was as unfair as hiring “a hitman to solve a problem.” The group expressed shock that the leader of the Catholic Church, who has compared abortion to Nazi eugenics, would disparage abortion, and called his comments “a disappointment to abortion providers.” “The villains here are not those who...

    Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) is suing Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes, alleging that her office has withheld crucial voter information as Scott's closely watched Senate race against Sen. Bill Nelson (D) appears set for a recount. The lawsuit, filed Thursday evening, accuses Snipes’s office of withholding records regarding how many people voted, how many ballots have been counted and how many more votes remain untallied in Broward. “The lack of transparency raises substantial concerns about the validity of the election process,” his lawsuit reads. It demands an emergency hearing ahead of a critical noon Saturday deadline for...

    Springfield is toxic. Good ideas are shut down by party politics. Members of the General Assembly are all too eager to make a “campaign” speech on the Capitol floor, but all too hesitant to introduce or support meaningful legislation. Why would I raise a family in Illinois? Why should my hard-earned money be taxed to feed the bloated belly of Springfield and the dysfunction that is Illinois state politics? No one likes paying taxes, but I am OK with it if enough of those taxes go to help needy schools, poor neighborhoods or Illinois’ crumbling infrastructure. After Tuesday, I knew...

    Just a heads up to anyone who may experience something similar. First, I have been a resident of TX since 1972 and have never lived in Florida. This last March, I received a parking citation from Miami-Dade County, Florida for "RESTRICTED OR IMPROPER PARKING" on 02/12/2018. Somehow, they found my TX license plate number for one of my vehicles. The first problem is, neither I nor any of my vehicles has been in Florida since 2015. In 2015, I was in the panhandle of Florida. I have never been in Miami. Secondly, the citation indicates the offending vehicle as a...

    Washington's decision to cut off US supplies to a Chinese chip-maker spotlights mounting tensions over China's drive to be a global player in computer chips and the ways in which Taiwan companies are helping it get there. Shut out of major global semiconductor deals in recent years, China has been quietly strengthening cooperation with Taiwan chip firms by encouraging the transfer of chip-making expertise into the mainland.

    Thousands of protesters packed Times Square on Thursday evening to demonstrate against President Trump firing Secretary of State Jeff Sessions — a move they view as a threat to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the 2016 Trump presidential campaign. The crowd of about 4,000 formed in Times Square at about 5 p.m. and headed south on Broadway toward Union Square. Some held signs that read “Trump is not above the law” and “Protect Mueller!” The crowd also chanted “No excuse! Must recuse!” as they rallied in Times Square, according to video of the protest.

According to the agency, Hanson was taking a walk at Old Town in Kissimmee, Florida, on October 28 with his two Pomeranian service dogs, 21-year-old Kira and 11-year-old Star, when a woman he did...

    'The possession of goods is an opportunity to multiply them with creativity and use them with generosity,' the Pope saidPope Francis spoke of the need for creative entrepreneurship in the face of “scandalous poverty” Wednesday, stressing the importance of generosity with one’s possessions. “If there is hunger on earth, it is not because food is missing!” Pope Francis said in St. Peter’s Square Nov. 7. “What is lacking is a free and far-sighted entrepreneurship, which ensures adequate production, and a solidarity approach, which ensures fair distribution,” he continued. “Possession is a responsibility,” Francis stressed. “The ownership of a good makes...

In his speech at the high-level international conference "Lessons of a Hybrid Decade: What One Must Know to Move Forward Successfully" in Kiev on Wednesday, Poroshenko said, citing Putin, that Russia rests on two pillars: the Russian Orthodox Church and nuclear weapons. "Is it okay that the Russian Security Council immediately meets under the leadership of Putin with one issue on the agenda - how to protect the Russian Orthodox Church in Ukraine?

    Gov. Rick Scott’s campaign for Senate filed a lawsuit Thursday night against Broward County’s election head and questioned whether “rampant fraud” could be happening with the counting of votes in South Florida’s Democratic stronghold counties. Scott, a Republican, holds a 15,079 vote advantage over incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson. In a news conference at the governor’s mansion, Scott questioned how “votes are coming out of nowhere” in Democratic-leaning Broward and Palm Beach counties. He said he has ordered the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate. He blasted Palm Beach elections chief Susan Bucher and Broward elections head Brenda...
