    Jeb Bush has promised us a presidential campaign premised on the idea that he can become the GOP nominee by speaking directly to the general election electorate — which is to say, by delivering a stiff dose of realism to GOP primary voters, rather than pandering to them. Exhibit A: Immigration, where Bush has argued, outrageously, that we aren’t going to deport 11 million people, so it’s time to embrace some form of legalization as the only answer. Now Bush appears to be ratcheting up the attacks on fellow Republicans — presumably Marco Rubio and Scott Walker — over the...

    Marco Rubio skidded. Jeb Bush slid. Ben Carson zoomed. Mike Huckabee bounced. Scott Walker stayed steady. And that’s how you end up with a five-way tie for first place in the latest Quinnipiac University national poll on the GOP Sixteeners. Put another way: With five candidates evenly dividing half of the vote, there is no first place. While Rubio lost a third of his support and Bush continued to droop, losing three points for the second month in a row, all five can say with confidence that they will meet the polling criterion for the first GOP debate, hosted by...

Now, before you go off getting depressed about this, let me tell you what the reason for this is, after we give you the details. "Americans are more likely now than in the early 2000s to find a variety of behaviors morally acceptable, including gay and lesbian relations, having a baby outside of marriage and sex between an unmarried man and woman. Moral acceptability of many of these issues is now at a record-high level." It's a subtle message to the Republican Party, and...

    Conservative Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said that in America today if you do not support homosexual marriage, “you are labeled a homophobe and a hater,” and that the next step in that strategy is “to argue that the teachings of mainstream Christianity” constitute “hate speech.” "We are at the water's edge of the argument that mainstream Christian teaching is hate speech,” said Senator Rubio in a May 26 interview with CBN News. “Because today we've reached the point in our society where if you do not support same-sex marriage you are labeled a homophobe and a hater,” he said, adding,...

    The Dubai Ports World controversy of 2006 is making a comeback, only this time the Arab principal has actually gained control of the container contract for a major U.S. port. The site is Port Canaveral, near the Kennedy Space Center on Florida’s east coast, which is frequented by U.S. and NATO-ally nuclear submarines. A 35-year contract signed last year and set to go operational next month allows a United Arab Emirates-based company managed by Badr Jafar to operate a cargo terminal managing containers. The UAE has been a major donor to the troubled Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation. And...

    As Republicans prepare to pick their next presidential nominee, there's one primary that's already likely to get expensive and intense: Florida -- home to former governor Jeb Bush, who is likely to run, and Sen. Marco Rubio, who made his announcement in Miami. That's why Scott Walker, the Wisconsin governor who has been riding high in early polls, said Tuesday that he might skip the Florida primary. “If we chose to get in, I don’t think there’s a state out there that we wouldn’t play in," Walker, who has yet to get into the race, said on Laura Ingraham's radio...

    If you look at early polls, fundraising, campaign staffing and media acumen, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) appear to be the two strongest opponents to take on Jeb Bush. What are Walker and Rubio doing right, and why have they separated themselves from the rest of the pack? Certainly, their newness is part of their appeal. They are a generation (at least) behind Hillary Clinton and congressional leaders of both parties. They are relatively new to the national stage for many voters. They can credibly claim to be outside the permanent political class. Perhaps because Clinton...

    Preparing for a Supreme Court decision that could strike down Obamacare’s subsidies for nearly 7.5 million people this summer, Senate Republicans are coalescing around a plan to resurrect them — at a steep price for the White House. With several Senate Republicans facing tough reelections, and control of the chamber up for grabs, 31 senators have signed on to a bill written by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) that would restore the subsidies for current Obamacare enrollees through September 2017. But the administration would have to pay a heavy price — the bill would also repeal Obamacare’s individual and employer mandates...

    Hillary Clinton is heading to the Sunshine State this week to spend time with one of Florida’s most influential Democratic donors, trial lawyer John Morgan. Morgan is not just praising Clinton’s candidacy, but actively bashing her potential Republican rivals. In an interview with The Daily Beast, Morgan took shots at Wisconsin Governor and prospective 2016 candidate, Scott Walker: “Walker would be the first president with a GED.”The Democratic donor attempted to insult Walker for not obtaining a college degree, which he opted out of in order to get started with his career.

    You blinked, you missed it. The pro-life community just switched positions; it now supports assisted suicide! In their vital fight to save Florida’s Terri Schiavo from being starved to death by judicial decree, they foolishly hinged their position on the absence of a “written directive.” If the Hemlock Society had tried to pass a federal law legitimizing assisted suicide, pro-lifers would have stopped them. But pro-life leaders have so often compromised on “Thou shall not murder,” they no longer realize when they’re making concessions. They tried desperately to pass the Incapacitated Persons Legal Protection Act which, for the first time...

    We live in an age of narratives, not news. The narrative in the mainstream media is that Hillary Clinton is “inevitable” as the Democratic nominee, with supporting polling data from the New York Times (that oversamples Democrats and under-samples Republicans) manufactured to support the narrative. But the real news, what people need to know, is that Hillary looks like a disaster-in-the-making, with very poor campaign skills and an indefensible record overseeing foreign policy disasters that have exploded in the face of Obama. But some in the mainstream media are beginning to shed their reluctance to say that the empress has...

    Marco Rubio made $174,000 as a U.S. senator last year. He earned $52,000 from book royalties and a university teaching position, and at least $5,000 more from rental property. And yet, the 43-year-old Florida Republican also made what is typically viewed as a desperate financial maneuver — cashing out nearly $70,000 in retirement funds. As Rubio runs for president, newly disclosed personal finance details have drawn fresh attention to a long-running problem during his political career: his struggles with money. Rubio is one of the least wealthy senators or presidential candidates, offering a potential contrast with rivals such as Hillary...

    SPRING HILL – Firefighters face countless hazards each time they walk into a burning building or pull victims from mangled vehicles, but what about unexpected dangers presented by those they are trying to help? Just like the increasing hostility towards law enforcement, the threat of violence against all First Responders is growing. During the recent unrest in Baltimore, Firefighters were pelted with rocks and bottles as they tried to extinguish burning buildings and vehicles. Closer to home, Fire Rescue responded to 680 Cape Cod Loop Sunday, to assist a man who had fallen into a pool at Nantucket Cove Apartments....

    “Clinton Cash” author Peter Schweizer said that he is ” finding some interesting, compelling things” in his investigation of Jeb Bush on Tuesday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show.” Schweizer reported, “We’re about four months into the research project, obviously not as global in scope as the Clintons, but you know, as governor of the state of Florida, you have a lot of things that you can do. So we’re following the money. We’re looking at land deals. We’re looking at an airport deal. We are looking at some of the educational reforms that were instituted, and some of the big corporate winners...

    The Marion County Board of Commissioners voted to remove Marcel “Butch” Verrando from the Marion County Industrial Development Authority on Tuesday afternoon after a television reporter brought to their attention that Verrando had posted racially offensive remarks on Marion County Political Forum’s Facebook page. Verrando, one of the founders of Tea Party Solutions in Ocala, Tuesday morning wrote on Facebook, “My experience was that the only time a black guy applied for work it was because they were on probation and HAD to have a real job.”

    The countdown is beginning for today’s launch of the Atlas 5 rocket to haul the Air Force’s X-37B reusable spaceplane back into orbit.

    . Ted Cruz SURPRISES the GOP Beltway Establishment Pundits at the FFPC Florida Straw Poll (May 19, 2015) in Orlando, Florida. A virtual dead-heat between Ted Cruz (30.3 %) and supposed "Florida native son darling" Marco Rubio (30.7 %). Jed Bush and Scott Walker finished poorly in a third-place tie with a paltry 8.9 % each, barely passing an otherwise weak showing by Rick Santorum (6.7 %), Rand Paul (4.5 %), Ben Carson (3.4 %), Mike Huckabee (2.2 %) and Rick Perry (1.1 %). GOP 2016 candidates Chris Christie, Carly Fiorina, Lindsey Graham, Bobby Jindal, and John Kasich each received...

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - After a long, expensive and sometimes bruising, Jacksonville voters elected a new mayor on Tuesday. When the first early votes and absentee votes were reported just after 7 p.m., Republican Lenny Curry had a 1 percent lead over incumbent Mayor Alvin Brown. Two hours later, with 98 percent of the 200,000 votes counted, that lead was only slightly larger, but enough to declare victory. After thanking his family, his volunteers, his donors and the Republican Party of Florida, Curry turned to the future.

    Most members of Congress make $174,000 a year. Two senior House Democrats say lawmakers deserve a raise. Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) told reporters on Tuesday that he’s concerned that static congressional salaries — the pay level has remained the same since 2009 — will dissuade all but the uber-wealthy from serving in Congress. “This will be the seventh year in a row that we have not done a cost-of-living adjustment….I think it was appropriate at the time of the recession,” Hoyer said. “But to continue that on, we will dictate that the only people who can serve are the...
