    TAMARAC. FLA. (WSVN) - - The Broward Teachers Union, state representatives and Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School parents and students held a joint press conference, Thursday afternoon. The union called for Florida Gov. Rick Scott to force the state pension board to stop investing teacher retirement fund contributions in three firearm manufacturing companies. “You have turned our teachers retirement fund into blood money,” said Meiling Hoshing, Marjory Stoneman Douglas student. “No teacher wants your unhealthy decisions on their soul.” One of the firearm companies receiving a bulk of the funds manufactures the AR-15 rifle, the weapon used in the Marjory...

    WASHINGTON — Florida Gov. Rick Scott will run for Senate, a Scott political adviser confirmed to NBC News on Monday, challenging longtime incumbent Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson and turning up the heat in what will be one of the nation's most-watched midterm election battles. Scott's move sets up a contentious and pricey battle for Democrats to defend the seat they've held for almost two decades, but also brings President Donald Trump's possible impact on down-ballot races into close focus yet again. The president has been urging Scott — a key supporter of Trump for president in 2016 — for months...

    Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) threw fellow GOP South Carolina Congressman Tim Scott’s name out as a future presidential candidate. “I would love Tim Scott to run for president,” Gowdy stated. “Whether it’s 2024, whenever it fits his heart, but he has a cheery, optimistic brand of conservatism that I think our country would benefit from and, quite frankly, whether he won or not, our country would be better off hearing someone with his life story, the grandson of man who couldn’t read, picked cotton, then he grew up to pick out a seat in...

    What, no or very few polls relating to the mass slaughter of innocents in Broward County, Florida. Nary or little word on the failures of Sheriff, Scott Israel (he is the worst insult & stain, to the great nation of Israel), the massive failure of the FBI (that America has lost all faith in) and the silence of all the Democrat, liberal low life, that reside in Broward County....those who have brought this murderous horror to reality with their nutcase ideas, agendas and sick mantra. The name of incompetent, Criminal, Democrat, Congresswoman, Debbi Wasserman Schultz surfaces as proof of the...

    WASHINGTON – Florida Gov. Rick Scott Sunday rejected a plan pitched by President Trump to arm certain teachers with guns as a solution to stop mass shootings. “I disagree with him,” Scott, a Republican, told Fox News Sunday. “I believe you’ve got to focus on the people that are well-trained in law enforcement, that are trained to do this. I want to make sure we have significant law enforcement presence (at schools) on top of hardening the schools with metal detectors and bullet proof glass, better perimeter fencing.” “I want our teachers to teach and our law enforcement officers to...

    Gov. Rick Scott is moving to remove Florida Supreme Court Justice Barbara Pariente from a legal challenge to his judicial appointment power... The motion also refers to statements made by Pariente while campaigning for retention... “A vote ‘yes’ will be a vote to retain me and the other two justices … A vote ‘no’ will give Gov. Scott the right to make his appointments, which will result in partisan political appointments.” “Gov. Scott strongly believes that all Floridians deserve judges that are impartial, fair and non-partisan...” “Justice Pariente’s past remarks cast grave doubt on her ability to take an objective...”...

    Two GOP senators said Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore should not be a member of Congress amid allegations that he sexually harassed teenage girls when he was in his 30s. “The allegations are stronger than the denial, and Roy Moore should find something else to do. I think that there’s a strong possibility with a new Republican candidate, a proven conservative, that we can win that race in Alabama,” Sen. Tim Scott, a Republican from South Carolina, said on “Fox News Sunday Morning.” Sen. Susan Collins of Maine said she finds the sexual misconduct claims against Moore “credible.” “I read...

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today Governor Rick Scott released the following statement on State Attorney Aramis Ayala’s decision not to seek the death penalty for Markeith Loyd, who is charged with killing Lt. Debra Clayton of the Orlando Police Department. Governor Scott said, “I want to be very clear, Lt. Debra Clayton was executed while she was laying on the ground fighting for her life.

    Imagine you lived in a world in which no one except one senior citizen ever drank alcoholic beverages. Would you think it is a good idea to choose this one person – the only drinker in the world – to be in charge of the nuclear arsenal? No, that would be crazy. We know alcohol impairs judgment. And a president is on-call for emergencies 24-hours a day. Alcohol plus life-and-death decisions is a dangerous combination. The only reason social drinking (or worse) is not automatically disqualifying for the Commander-in-Chief job is because … wait for it … many of us...

Like, we infiltrate.” **** Shortly after the video’s release, Foval was canned.

    Florida Gov. Rick Scott said Thursday that the state would not extend its Oct. 11 voter-registration deadline in response to Hurricane Matthew, throwing cold water on a request from the Clinton campaign. "I'm not going to extend it," the governor told reporters Thursday. "Everybody has had a lot of time to register. On top of that, we have lots of opportunities to vote: early voting, absentee voting, Election Day. So I don't intend to make any changes." Hillary Clinton's campaign manager, Robby Mook, said Thursday that they hoped election officials in the Sunshine State would consider making accommodations for voters...

White-cops-shoot-unarmed-black-man? Don’t think so. As the video below demonstrates, the media caused all this. More than 1,000 people heard on the news that a guy holding a book was shot by police, and...
