Dunn could be seen grabbing Lopez, an agricultural laborer, as he tried to leave, then firing a semiautomatic Glock at him. Lopez was holding a hatchet in his right hand that belonged to the store, police said, but wasn't seen in the video physically threatening Dunn.

    Golfers in St. Petersburg, Florida, were shocked when they saw a massive rattlesnake slither across the course. Logan Ungerer and some friends were golfing at Mangrove Bay Golf Course on Columbus Day when Ungerer “saw what looked like a stick blowing in the wind on the green,” according to Fox 13. Upon closer inspection, he realized it wasn’t a stick at all — it was a snake.The creature was likely a diamondback rattlesnake, David Steen, a conservation biologist, told the Tampa Bay Times. Diamondbacks are said to be the largest venomous snake in North America, reaching up to eight feet in...

    Nancy Pelosi cursed out by protesters in Florida By Tamar Lapin October 20, 2018 | 1:47am House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was hounded by a group of protesters in Florida — with some cursing and calling her a “communist.” Video of the confrontation shows the small group of hecklers shouting obscenities and calling Pelosi (D-Calif) a communist in English and Spanish as she walks into a Wednesday campaign event for congressional hopeful Donna Shalala in Coral Gables. “You don’t belong here you f–ing communist f-k,” one person howls. “You and your f–ing Democrats.” When Pelosi wordlessly walks by and enters...

    Speaking in South Florida to Parkland students and parents earlier this week, House Minority Leader Pelosi called the activists a “blessing to our country,” and said that because of their energy on the issue, gun control would be a priority for Democrats should they take back the House in the midterm elections. “I admire you so much,” she said. “You have the purpose, the generosity of spirit. You have the marchers — you have people who will go out there to make a difference — and you just have a relentless, persistent, dissatisfied approach.” But not all parents of Parkland...

    It's going to cost a bit more to park or be a passholder at Disney's (NYSE: DIS) sprawling theme park resort in Florida. Disney World is boosting the parking lot prices at its four theme parks by at least 11%, with the biggest percentage move coming for standard parking -- up 14% to $25 for cars and motorcycles. Parking has always been included for passholders, but those annual ransoms also went up on Tuesday. Annual passes for the four different tiers are now 3% to 9% higher than they were earlier in the week, with the largest percentage increase for...

Mexican Ambassador to the U.S. Geronimo Gutierrez elaborated on the request, during an interview on Fox News’ “Special Report.” “Just today, the Mexican government, and this is a very important step, requested the intervention of the U.N., the Office...

    Last week, a federal judge in California dismissed a lawsuit the American Civil Liberties Union had filed in 2016 challenging the government’s award of grants to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to provide services to unaccompanied minor illegal aliens and trafficking victims. In the lawsuit, the ACLU argued the grants violated the Establishment Clause because the Department of Health and Human Services allowed the Catholic organization (and its sub-grantees) to deny girls and women in their care contraceptives and abortion. The court rejected the ACLU’s Establishment Clause claim in a methodical 34-page opinion, explaining that the federal funds...

    Nearly 2.6 million Florida voters are receiving mail ballots for the November election It's still early, but there's no sign of a blue wave in the initial wave of mail ballot returns in Florida. Figures filed Wednesday with the state show that more Republicans than Democrats are returning their mail ballots, 20 days before Election Day. Nearly 2.6 million voters have been sent mail ballots — what used to be called absentee ballots — and 554,000 arrived through Tuesday. Republican mail ballot returns of 247,530 accounted for 45 percent of the total returns statewide, even though Republicans account for 35...

    RealClear Politics ^ | 10/17/2018 | Steve Hantler
    The past several years have witnessed the radical left using law enforcement as a political target, which has increased the risks for those in uniform and hurt public safety. Andrew Gillum, the so-called “democratic socialist” candidate for governor of Florida, represents the triumph of the progressive left’s approach to law enforcement, and a victory by him in November would lead to a statewide increase in crime. That Florida would see such a rise under Gillum is not fanciful speculation but an obvious inference from his tenure as mayor of Tallahassee. On his watch, the city/Leon County metro area has had...

    In the first poll since Hurricane Michael devastated the Panhandle — and changed the course of state politics — the race for Florida Governor is virtually tied. Twenty days before Election Day, Democrat Andrew Gillum is at 47 percent, while Republican Ron DeSantis is at 46. However, among those who say they have already voted, DeSantis is at 49 percent, while Gillum is at 45 percent. A similar scenario is set up for Florida’s U.S. Senate race — heading into the stretch in dead-heat fashion, according to the new survey by St. Pete Polls. Republican Gov. Rick Scott has a...
