    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Florida Republican Congressman Ron DeSantis, along with 10 other GOP members of the House, sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray on Wednesday, detailing formal criminal referrals against James Comey, Hillary Clinton, Loretta Lynch and Andrew McCabe. While Sean Hannity and other conservative radio and TV talk show hosts played the letter up as if it is a momentous event, the truth is that it makes referrals that are already being acted upon by the Attorney General. Sessions has already and repeatedly made it clear that...

    Washington, DC – Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) today sent a letter, along with several colleagues, to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and US Attorney John Huber, asking them to investigate several Obama-era officials for potential violation(s) of federal statutes.

Read the criminal referral here. The following members have joined DeSantis in this call for equal application of the law:...

    Fox News ^ | 4-18-18 | Judson Berger, Brooke Singman
    Nearly a dozen Republican members of Congress on Wednesday sent a criminal referral to the Justice Department and FBI seeking an investigation of former bureau boss James Comey, his deputy Andrew McCabe, ex-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Hillary Clinton in connection with 2016 campaign controversies. Attorney General Jeff Sessions already announced last month he had assigned a federal prosecutor to review some of those broader issues, while resisting calls for a second special counsel. But the referral represents an escalation of Republican pressure to probe top Democrats and Trump critics. Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., and 10 other House lawmakers want...

    Gun control proponent David Hogg is pushing a boycott of mutual fund companies invested in firearm manufacturer stocks. This follows his boycott of Fox News’s Laura Ingraham, which resulted in her initially losing advertisers and apologizing to him only to have her viewership jump 20 percent. Now Hogg is targeting BlackRock, Vanguard Group, and a few other mutual fund companies for holding gun manufacturers’ stock in their mutual funds. Hogg tweeted:

    The San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted 3-1 to support the Trump administration’s lawsuit against California over laws that the state passed last year to limit its role in immigration enforcement. The county will file an amicus brief at the first available opportunity, likely on appeal, said Kristin Gaspar, supervisor for District 3 and chairwoman of the board. “We’re talking about people who are crossing the border illegally, coming into this county and committing a crime and them being let loose probably to commit another crime,” said Dianne Jacobs, supervisor for District 2. “That creates a public safety issue...

    WEST PALM BEACH FLORIDA-Nikki R. Haley, the ambassador to the United Nations, fired back at the White House on Tuesday, denying that she had been confused when she announced on Sunday that the Trump administration would impose new sanctions on Russia. "With all due respect, I don't get confused," she told Dana Perino of Fox News. She was responding to a comment earlier in the day by Larry Kudlow, the president's new economic advisor who was briefing reporters in Florida before President Trump's meeting with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan. "She got ahead of the curve,” Mr. Kudlow said....

    From criticizing President Donald Trump for congratulating Vladimir Putin on his re-election in March, to saying earlier this month that Trump’s comments about withdrawing from Syria “emboldened” Bashar al-Assad, Arizona Senator John McCain in recent weeks has continued to uphold his reputation as one of the Republican Party’s most vocal critics of the president. But what was perhaps McCain’s most dramatic gesture of dissent against President Trump to date came at 1:30 a.m. on July 28, 2017. In the opening scene from the new FRONTLINE documentary McCain, which traces the Republican Party’s evolution across McCain’s political career, and how President...

    The ABC "Comey" interview was not the blockbuster advertised. Out of 330,000,000 million American a scrawny, 9,800,000 viewers tuned in. That adds up to about five percent of the American population Shucks, the old, has-been porno star "Stormy Daniels" boring as she was, garnered 21,000,000 viewers on CBS, Sixty Minutes. And, of course the Country Music Awards wiped James Comey off the face of the earth, last evening. But, folks, do not despair......the Obamabot low life have begun to attack each other with Comey, McCabe and Lynch, ripping each other apart as to who told lies or did not tell...

    Rep. Ron DeSantis spoke with FBN's Maria Bartiromo and FOX News analyst Jason Chaffetz about Imran Awan, a Pakistani IT technician who worked for more than 40 House Democrats. He is accused of committing severe cyber breaches and drawing unusually high salaries for his relatives. About the accusations, DeSantis said: "As you know, Jason, guys like me and even you as the chairman, we don't just investigate what we want to. I mean, this goes through the leadership. It needs to be approved. And I think the House leadership has not wanted any of us to get involved with investigating...

    An inspector for the city of Jacksonville, Florida has been suspended for her behavior after citing the owner of Jaguar Power Sports for flying military flags on a rooftop display. The flags were apparently in violation of code. But it was the behavior of the inspector, Melinda Power, that got her in hot water with the mayor's office and led to her suspension. A customer, a wounded warrior, overheard her citing the owner and objected. Her response was that he “did nothing for this country.”

    Iranian-backed militants are operating across the United States mostly unfettered, raising concerns in Congress and among regional experts that these "sleeper cell" agents are poised to launch a large-scale attack on the American homeland, according to testimony before lawmakers. Iranian agents tied to the terror group Hezbollah have already been discovered in the United States plotting attacks, giving rise to fears that Tehran could order a strike inside America should tensions between the Trump administration and Islamic Republic reach a boiling point. Intelligence officials and former White House officials confirmed to Congress on Tuesday that such an attack is not...

    George Soros, the Hungarian-born financier and billionaire political activist, pumped $450,000 into the Florida-based PAC United for Progress, according to campaign finance records with the Florida secretary of state's office. The donation represents the only political funding Soros undertook in the Sunshine state in the first quarter of 2018. "United for Progress's primary goal remains to build community-based political power and influence in the growing Puerto Rican and Latino constituencies in Florida," Chairman Juan Marcos Vilar told the Washington Free Beacon by email. "United for Progress's local leadership has not made decisions about endorsement or opposition to any specific candidates...

    A nationwide manhunt is underway for a grandmother known as "Losing Streak Lois" to authorities, who believe she killed her husband last month in Minnesota, then killed a woman in Florida, likely in a bid to steal her identity. Lois Riess, 56, of Blooming Prairie, Minnesota, was last seen Sunday, about 50 miles from Corpus Christi, Texas, heading south on Highway 77, Deputy US Marshal John Kinsey told CNN. She is known to have a gambling addiction and often frequents casinos, which accounts for her nickname among local police, according to the US Marshals Service. Riess allegedly killed her husband...

    Photo via Ian Bartoszek/Conservancy of Southwest Florida An invasive Burmese python with a surgically implanted tracking device led Florida researchers to the largest python "aggregation" ever found in Collier County. A couple of days before Valentine's Day, a male python (or sentinel) nicknamed Argo was fitted with a tracking device and led researchers with the Conservancy of Southwest Florida to a 100-pound female python about to lay eggs. The female was captured, and Argo was then released to be tracked down again. Just three days later and about a half-mile away from the first location, they found the horny...

    A federal judge in Los Angeles this week struck down the Trump administration’s policy of denying certain Department of Justice law enforcement grants to cities that adopt “sanctuary” policies and refuse to cooperate with immigration enforcement. The Los Angeles Times reports: U.S. District Judge Manuel Real issued a permanent, nationwide ban against a Justice Department policy that gave an edge to obliging police departments applying for a community policing grant program. In doing so, Real dealt a legal setback to the Trump administration in its aggressive campaign to crack down on illegal immigration and to force compliance from law enforcement...

    The demographic-inevitability thesis is less credible than ever. Last week, one of the most powerful men in America, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, endorsed as a “great read” a Medium article entitled “The Great Lesson of California in America’s New Civil War.” The article, by Peter Leyden and Ruy Teixeira, is one entry in a lengthy four-part series called “California Is the Future,” and it posits that there is “no bipartisan path forward for America.” Leyden and Teixeira believe that there are two competing economic systems, classes, and cultures, and that one has to win while the other has to lose....

    It's time to mount a serious campaign to end tolls in Miami-Dade County. Any time the government wants to charge people money, we should be allowed to vote on it. Florida's Turnpike Enterprise and the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority (MDX) are highway robbers preying on predominantly poor motorists struggling to have a roof over their heads, put food on the table, and take care of their families. I remember the days when there was only one toll on State Road 112 when you left Miami International Airport to get to Miami Beach. Now there are tolls on virtually every major highway...
