    Thousands of adorable but poisonous Bufo toads, which can kill pets and are dangerous to children, have invaded a suburban Florida neighborhood. Cane toads, as they are known, range from 6 to 9 inches in length. Their babies are dime-sized, though, and those are the creatures hopping around in droves. “I just see a massive amount of toads or frogs everywhere, covering every square inch,” said Jennifer Quasha, who lives in an affected area of Palm Beach Gardens, to WPTV. “You can’t even walk through the grass without stepping on one.”

    The recalled products included California-grown conventional and organic avocados. They were packed at Henry Avacado's facility in California and distributed to six states: Arizona, California, Florida, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Wisconsin. Henry Avocado, a family owned and managed company, started packing in this facility in late January 2019 and every shipment is subject to the recall. Henry Avacado said it is contacting its retail customers to confirm the recalled products have been pulled from the shelves. The company advises consumers to check the stickers on their avocados. The recalled products have "Bravocado" stickers. Henry Avocado organic products do not...

    President Donald Trump was at his Florida club at Mar-a-Lago when the report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller was delivered on Friday. The news of no new indictments in the Mueller report was enough to cheer Trump supporters who attended a fundraiser hosted by Palm Beach County Republicans where Sen. Lindsey Graham was the keynote speaker. Both President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump briefly made an appearance at the fundraiser, thanking supporters and signaling their interest in what Graham had to say. The president and the first lady did not mention the Mueller report. “If Lindsey’s speaking, I want...

    Four years ago, Democrats were gearing up for a pre-determined outcome, the anointing of Hillary Clinton as the party’s presidential candidate. Convinced they were “on the right side of history,” Democrats believed Hillary was destined to succeed Barack Obama, America’s first black president, by becoming our first female president. The only real opposition to Mrs. Clinton’s nomination came from Bernie Sanders, the socialist senator from Vermont who had never previously identified as a Democrat. The weakness of Hillary’s candidacy was exposed in the 2016 primary campaign, when Bernie and his wild-eyed supporters very nearly derailed her nomination, being foiled by...

    The top cop in the Robert Kraft prostitution case expects the salacious footage eventually will be given to the media and others. "Once a case is over, it's not an ongoing investigation," Snyder says. "There has to be a specific reason not to release a public record. And the fact that there is sexual activity is not an exemption." Snyder says of the video, which prosecutors say shows the New England Patriots owner engaged in illegal sexual activity: "There is nothing to see. It's pretty ugly." _________________________________________________________ . New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft really doesn't want the public to...

    Florida has earned a reputation for being home to some colorful characters -- most notably the "Florida man." He isn't actually a single person but rather a trope of all the Florida men who've made headlines for doing something ... unusual. And he's now starring in the latest internet fad: the "Florida man" challenge, in which you Google "Florida man" and your birthday to see what crazy news story from the state pops up. From botched robberies to deadly cockroach-eating contests, it seems like there's a wild story about a Florida man for every day of the year.

    We've recently reported on the Democrats' intentions of trying to expand the Supreme Court in hopes of getting revenge on Mitch McConnell. The Senate Majority Leader blocked President Obama nominee Merrick Garland, who he intended to replace the late Antonin Scalia. McConnell kept the seat open for President Trump to appoint a more conservative individual. And then another after that. With the Court now clearly skewed to the right, progressives have begun to seriously consider upending the norm. "Given the Merrick Garland situation, the question of legitimacy is one that I think we should actually talk about," Holder said earlier this...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) issued a barrage of criticism about the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 on Wednesday, which marked the 16th anniversary of the start of one of America's longest-running armed conflicts. In a series of tweets, the Minnesota congresswoman labeled the George W. Bush administration's invasion of Iraq "illegal" and called for those involved in the explanation and lead up to the war to be held accountable. "16 years ago the U.S. illegally invaded Iraq, leaving a trail of destruction and lives lost," Omar tweeted. "4,496 U.S. troops lost their lives. 100,000+ Iraqi civilians [were] killed." "We...

    It is not a crime for an illegal immigrant to use fake federal documents to obtain a legitimate state license, according to a remarkable ruling issued this week by an Obama-appointed judge in south Florida. The defendant, 38-year-old Rubman Ardon Chinchilla, was among 20 people arrested several months ago in a scheme that used bogus immigration documents in driver’s license applications. The man who masterminded the operation, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Cuba, has been charged with fraud. Chinchilla, a Honduran national, has lived illegally in the U.S. for decades, according to a local newspaper report, and has three American-born...

    Talk about your strange bedfellows . . . Both Pat Buchanan and Donny Deutsch have advocated the arrest of Pastor Terry Jones to prevent his possible burning of Korans and the danger to US troops such act would threaten. The paleo-conservative and the New York liberal made common cause on today's Morning Joe. They were outnumbered by Mika Brzezinski, Dan Senor and John Heilemann, all of whom opposed the arrest-the-pastor proposal on First Amendment grounds. Buchanan and Deutsch expressed disregard for the First Amendment implications. Buchanan asserted that if Pres. Obama were to follow his advice, conservatives would support him...
