    WASHINGTON – Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) predicted that President Donald Trump will eventually resign from office to avoid impeachment by making up an excuse such as “somebody is trying to kill Barron” Trump, his 11-year-old son. “We just have to, like the slogan says, stay woke; just stay woke, be careful, because I can see the wheels turning now…we’re marching toward impeachment, there’s no question about it. If that happens, are we prepared? Because it’s going to happen,” Wilson said Thursday at the annual Legislative & Policy Conference organized by Al Sharpton’s National Action Network (NAN) on Capitol Hill....

    The pastor of a Melbourne, Florida, church who attended President Trump’s rally in his hometown over the weekend is claiming “demonic” activity and vitriol were palpable at the event, traumatizing his 11-year-old daughter. “I have been in places and experiences before where demonic activity was palpable,” wrote Joel Tooley, pastor of the First Church of the Nazarene in Melbourne. “The power of the Holy Spirit of God was protecting me in those moments and was once again protecting me and my daughter in this moment.”

    A joint terrorism task force is investigating whether a 21-year-old man has connections to terrorism after he was arrested at the New Port Richey, Florida home he shares with his parents. Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said on Twitter Wednesday it would be foolish for him to say the case is "definitely not connected to terrorism." Paramedics were called to the home Wednesday morning after Sherif Elganainy's father became unresponsive. He was taken to a hospital. His mother called deputies to ask them to check out suspicious fumes she said were in her home. The sheriff's office says "suspicious materials"...

    Forget the “then” and “now” aspect to Nate Cohen’s protestations, that is purely face-saving nonsense. Florida is in solidly in Trump’s column, and has been since day #1 of his candidacy platform announcement. Fughedaboudit. The current problem for Team Clinton is how to pull out of Florida without putting too much sunlight on the ruse the media has worked so hard to retain on their behalf. The size of the Florida margin will be a 7 to 10 point victory for Donald Trump. It will not be close folks. This election won’t even be close

    A central Florida newspaper has apologized to its readers for the decidedly anti-Donald Trump coverage that has been published during the election. The Daily Commercial published an editorial titled “The media, the election and bias” on Oct. 23 that explained the paper is reliant on wire services for much of its election coverage and those reports are weighted heavily against Trump. “The Daily Commercial hasn’t done enough to mitigate the anti-Trump wave in the pages of this paper,” it wrote. “You deserve a more balanced approach to the coverage of elections and other weighty issues.” Read more:

    Florida's rapidly changing population mix, deeply divided electorate and rank as the third most populous state in the nation could give Sunshine State voters the clout to decide who will win the presidency in 2016. As the closest swing state in the country, Florida's 29 electoral votes are a huge prize that represent more than 10 percent of the total needed to win the presidency. And that means the state's voters can look forward to everything that comes with a sizzling hot presidential election contest: months of wall-to-wall ads on TV; candidates, family members and political friends courting every possible...

    Coast Guard search-and-rescue crews are searching for two missing 14-year-old boys in the vicinity of Jupiter. Austin Stephanos (left) and Perry Cohen (right), both 14, were reported missing after not returning from a fishing trip on Friday off the coast of Jupiter, Florida. They were last seen at approximately 1:30 p.m after purchasing $110 worth of fuel. Officials received a report that the boys had disappeared at about 5 p.m. after they didn’t return to shore at the expected time. The Coast Guard had covered about 5,300-square nautical miles by Saturday morning. The Palm Bay Sheriff’s Office is also providing...

There are numerous important House Primary Races! And places where we can WIN! PLEASE contribute! And if you can't contribute money ... the least we can do is go to their pages and give them a "like" or a tweet. All of these candidates are involved in primaries that are close (or could be close) against generally more moderate or liberal Republicans. All of these districts are winnable in November.

    Eric Stults likely regrets leaving a lifeless 89 mph fastball right below Giancarlo Stanton’s belt and over the middle of the plate. Stanton’s mammoth blasts aren’t too surprising anymore, but this shot still doesn’t have a clear landing point, or not one we can find. Perhaps the ball was reduced to smithereens. Perhaps it extended beyond the atmosphere into orbit.

    "............David Jolly was nearly abandoned by the Republican Party — apparently all too willing to reconstitute a circular firing squad. A Politico article less than a week before the election (probably designed to help Alex Sink) offered this pearl of political reporting: Over the past week, a half-dozen Washington Republicans have described Jolly’s campaign against Democrat Alex Sink as a Keystone Cops operation, marked by inept fundraising, top advisers stationed hundreds of miles away from the district in the state capital and the poor optics of a just-divorced, 41-year-old candidate accompanied on the campaign trail by a girlfriend 14 years...

    Humana Inc., the nation's fourth-largest health insurer by market share, warned Thursday that the risk pool of applicants for insurance through President Obama's health care law would be worse than previously expected. Ever since the botched rollout of the health care law's exchanges in October, the policy community has been eager to know more about the mix of individuals signing up for insurance through the law. Because the law forces insurers to cover those with pre-existing conditions, insurers need to attract a critical mass of young and healthy individuals with lower medical costs into the exchanges to offset the cost....

    Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume warned Friday that the “Gang of Eight” efforts to pass immigration reform could be in trouble not only in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives, but also in the Democratic-controlled Senate as well. Hume said by rejecting all efforts to beef up border enforcement, the bill was being condemned to “a death sentence.” “I think the bill is in trouble,” he said on Laura Ingraham’s radio program, “And it would in trouble whether they had a gang in the House or not, and will continue to be in trouble unless or until the enforcement...

    President Obama on Thursday declared 11 Florida counties a disaster area for damage sustained in August from Tropical Storm Isaac. The declaration makes federal funding available to state and local governments. In September, the Federal Emergency Management Agency refused Gov. Rick Scott's request for a presidential declaration of disaster for damages caused by Isaac. FEMA director Craig Fugate... basically argued that Florida could handle the costs on its own. ....It was unclear late Thursday why the decision about the declaration was reversed...

    As the secretive campaign against the three Florida Supreme Court justices up for merit retention took shape Monday, one of the targeted justices warned that the future of the state’s independent judiciary was under threat. "This is the most stressful time I’ve ever experienced in my life,’’ said Justice R. Fred Lewis at a meeting of the Hillsborough County Bar Association. “There is an entire branch of government to protect and defend. We cannot sacrifice fairness and impartiality and the court system to political whims." Lewis’ remarks came three days after the Republican Party of Florida announced it will oppose...

Hollywood police say divers spent Monday morning searching Oak Lake Park, looking for bones and other evidence. Spokeswoman Lt Diana Pereira says that so far they haven't found anything after the two 15-year-olds found the skull over the weekend.

    As it turns out, Maine Republicans in a few towns will caucus this Saturday (January 28). The original plan I spoke with the Maine Republican Party about back in September revolved around the idea of holding caucuses within a window from February 4 and February 11 with a big reveal on that final date. That is still mostly true as most of the caucus venues will hold party meetings within that window. However, there are a few caucuses that branch out quite far from those two bookend dates. The collective caucus Lincoln, Lowell, Burlington, Chester, Enfield, Winn and Howland will...

You’ve defended the constitutional right of Muslims to build a mosque two blocks from ground zero in New York, even though its deeply offensive to some 9/11 families. The Rev. Terry Jones in Florida has suggested he too has a constitutional right to burn the Quran to send a message, yet you’ve implored him not to – because it will anger and offend some Muslims. Do you worry some Americans might question why you don’t...
  • Mom Suing After (her) Wet T-Shirt Leads to Arrest at Fla. Splash Park

    A central Florida woman who was arrested after her shirt got wet at a kiddie splash park in Tavares is suing the city for violating her rights, the woman's attorney told AOL News. "We are trying to vindicate her [and] establish [that] what was done to her was unconstitutional and wrong," said civil rights attorney Howard S. Marks. The incident that provoked the lawsuit occurred in April when Janet Lovett and her husband took their 7-year-old son, who is autistic, to the Children's Splash Park in Tavares. While she was in the park, Lovett was splashed by water, which soaked...
