    SARASOTA COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) Ė An 18-year veteran of the Sarasota County Sheriffís Office has been arrested on numerous charges, including attempted murder.

    If I learned anything from Trump¬ís inauguration and the subsequent Women¬ís March, it¬ís that Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston belong together. While hordes of women descended on Washington in pink knit hats and righteous indignation, sparking emotions from hope to confusion to mild annoyance, celebrities attempted to do their part. Their efforts ranged from exemplary¬ówhat did we do to deserve you, America Ferrera? ¬Ėto polarizing, to Lena Dunham. Rihanna put on a pink tutu and dabbed outside of Trump Tower. Ashley Judd put on an uncomfortable accent and did her best spoken word routine. Scarlett Johansson advocated for Planned Parenthood...

    A mummified three-fingered hand with eight inch fingers has been found in a Peruvian tunnel in the desert. While first inspection may lead one to conclude that it is nothing more than an imaginative man-made creation, examination by a physician in Cusco, Peru, revealed that it is composed of skin and bone, with six bones in each finger. The bizarre-looking hand was allegedly presented to Peru-based researcher Brien Foerster, who runs Hidden Inca Tours , along with a small mummified elongated skull and a tiny mummified body. The local person who has possession of the items told Foerster that they...

    Hillary Clinton raised eyebrows with a somewhat surreal satellite appearance before the Democratic National Convention that drew parallels to Appleís famous "1984" ad. Clinton appeared on a giant screen toward the end of artist Alicia Keys' appearance to thank delegates for formally selecting her as the Democratic Partyís presidential nominee. When she appeared, the screen showed glass breaking to reveal Clinton, a nod to her status as the first female major-party presidential nominee.

    Of America‚Äôs Founding Fathers, Ben Carson is most moved by Thomas Jefferson, partly because of the way he ‚Äútried to craft our Constitution,‚ÄĚ the retired neurosurgeon said this weekend. In a Sunday interview on C-SPAN as part of its ‚ÄúRoad to the White House‚ÄĚ series, Carson said he was ‚Äúimpressed by a lot of them,‚ÄĚ referring to the Founding Fathers.

    Before my fellow conservatives jump immediately to defend Candidate Carson, I would ask that they read the following short column. Some years ago, I became aware of the extraordinary and remarkable career of Dr. Benjamin Carson via the 2009 movie "Gifted Hands" ,a film in which Cuba Gooding, Jr. portrayed the doctor. I even talked about him to my friend and colleague Laurie Roth who, subsequently, interviewed him on her Radio show. Dr. Carson seemed to be an honorable man, conservative and true to his word. However, since he officially began his campaign for the position of POTUS, something appears...

    Last week, I wrote in this column that Dr. Ben Carson, a leading Republican candidate for the presidency, was an "American hero." I pronounced him thus even as the roof was falling in on his candidacy. Or was it? His numbers in the polls have held up. As the hullabaloo grew in the media, millions of dollars poured into his campaign from supporters all over the country. A week after it all began, the Carson campaign still appears formidable. Is his campaign really in trouble or has the crafty neurosurgeon-turned-presidential-candidate hit upon yet another tactic to win the election? Is...

    [VIDEO AND AUDIO OF MARK LEVIN'S SHOW] On his radio show yesterday evening, Mark ‚ÄúThe Great One‚ÄĚ Levin blasted Donald Trump and Marco Rubio for smearing their rivals for the Republican presidential nomination, Ben Carson and Ted Cruz. As PJ Media reported earlier, Trump recently went off on Carson during a campaign event in Iowa. The billionaire businessman smeared Carson, comparing him to child molesters and declaring he‚Äôs unfit to be president because he had violent impulses as a teenager. He even went so far as to blast Carson‚Äôs religiosity, basically saying it‚Äôs all a lie to swoon Iowa voters:...
  • Carson Would Use ‚ÄėThings They Don‚Äôt Know About Resources‚Äô on Terrorists

    ORLANDO ‚ÄĒ Ben Carson stumbled Friday evening while responding to a question about how he would respond to the terror attacks in Paris if he were president. Carson said he would employ "things that they don't know about resources" against terrorists, but struggled to specify what an American response under his leadership might look like. "I would be working with our allies, using every resource known to man: in terms of economic resources, in terms of covert resources‚Ķ military resources‚Ķ things-that-they-don't-know-about resources‚Ķ not to contain them, but to eliminate them, before they eliminate us," Carson told reporters at the Sunshine...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Donald Trump lit into Ben Carson yesterday. You know, it will be interesting to see. There have been countless times in the past where Trump has behaved in ways people found questionable and thought that would be the end of it. "He's gonna blow up. He's gonna implode. The polling data is gonna show he's gone too far, that people think he's gone too far." So people are saying that again yesterday over what Trump said about Ben Carson and others. Let's go to the sound bites and see what you think. Last night CNN's Erin Burnett...

    hite House Press Secretary Josh Earnest was literally at a loss for words on Friday when asked to comment on reports that Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson would release information proving that China is involved in fighting in Syria. After White House officials, including National Security Advisor Susan Rice, said Carson's claim was untrue, the GOP presidential candidate said that he had better information than the White House did. He also said that he would make his evidence public this weekend, and that the White House would have a chance to review it then. Earnest paused for a few seconds...

Carson said proposed a six-month registration period to register, then after that the case would be made on the legal status. -snip- Carson said, "When you look at farming industries, I've talked to farmers with multi-thousands acres farms and they say their business would collapse, I've talked to hotel owners and they say that they would have a very difficult time without them.

    This is the smartest possible response from a man who's admired by voters for his piety and service as a healer. He turned the other cheek: "It's so sad watching and listening to him," Armstrong Williams said on CNN's "New Day." "I mean, a man who is so accomplished, who has been so blessed, but yet cannot fathom why Dr. Carson or anyone else would be doing better than he in the presidential race right now.""He just cannot accept leading from behind," Mr. Williams said. "He cannot accept being challenged. He cannot reconcile how this is happening. Obviously, he only...

    Washington (CNN)GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson said Friday that he has better sources than the White House about the situation in Syria, sticking by his claim that China is involved in the fighting there. Carson previously said that the Chinese were involved in Syria in Tuesday's GOP debate, which the White House rejected. National Security Adviser Susan Rice said Thursday she has "not seen any evidence of Chinese military involvement in Syria" when asked about Carson's suggestions at a White House briefing. On Friday in South Carolina, Carson was pressed by CNN on whether he wanted to revise his earlier...

    Following up on his epic rant against his GOP opponent Ben Carson on Thursday night, presidential candidate Donald Trump released a video on Friday -- Friday the 13th -- set to creepy music, suggesting that Carson is either a "violent criminal" or "pathological liar." ...The creepy Trump video opens with old footage of Carson recalling, "I had a large camping knife, and I tried to stab him in the abdomen." The video then shows footage of a news interview with an old Carson acquaintance who suggests the story may be untrue. Then, text in the video reads, "Violent criminal? Pathological...

    Republican Presidential candidate Ben Carson told Arizonans that if elected president, he would seal the entire U.S.-Mexico border with a double-fenced wall within a year of taking office. His statement came in response to a question asked during a live half-hour telephone town hall meeting: "How practically and quickly can we get a wall that's effective?" one man asked, adding with great emphasis that "time is not on our side." Carson paused for moment, as if considering the logistics of constructing a 2,000-mile wall, before answering: "I think it can be done in a less than a year," he replied...

    Donald Trump hit Ben Carson in a new Instagram ad, in which he wondered if his fellow GOP front-runner is a "violent criminal" or a "pathological liar." The ad, released in honor of Friday the 13th, features an old Carson interview where he describes an incident in his childhood when he tried to stab someone in the abdomen. The Carson clip is followed by a clip of an old neighbor of his who said he never knew Carson to be that violent of a person. Directly following, Trump's team asks whether or not Carson is a "violent criminal or a...
