    As Cortney noted, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel has been suspended by Gov. Ron DeSantis. This was expected. Israel had told staff prior to this announcement that this would most likely happen.  And Gov. DeSantis made it official. Israel, who has been criticized for how his department responded to the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school last February, also took part in the CNN town hall event, where he slammed the National Rifle Association. The event was held days after the shooting. Now, with his suspension, Israel has blamed the NRA, and said this was all about politics.  "There was...

    Flanked by members of a local African-American faith community, a defiant Scott Israel defended himself against allegations of incompetence on Friday and made clear he would fight his suspension on any front necessary whether before the Florida Senate or in state or federal court. Israel, 62, a two-term Democratic sheriff of Broward County, was suspended by Gov. Ron DeSantis three days after the new Republican governor was sworn into office. DeSantis cited a list of failures enumerated by a state panel that investigated BSOs response to the Feb. 14, 2018, shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

Attorney General Ashley Moody, Shane Strum, DeSantis' chief of staff and three other members of his executive staff were also on the plane.

    Civil rights attorneys arrived on last Thursday and demanded to see the inmates. They were not the inmates personal attorneys of record. The attorneys wanted to know if the inmates had received their absentee ballots in the mail. As these attorneys were not the inmates attorneys of record, Sheriff Scott Israel should not have granted them access to the inmates. Protocol would have the attorneys sign into the jail, yet there is no record. The Deputy stated that the civil rights attorneys providedg the inmates with the narrative that they never received their absentee ballot. The liberal attorneys said the...

    Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla., joked about how somebody saving a drowning President Trump would be a "catastrophe" at the start of an event in Sunshine, Fla., on Sunday. In a video reported by the Daily Caller, Hastings said he first learned of the joke from Ari Silver, whose father is former Florida state legislator and rabbi Barry Silver. Do you know the difference between a crisis and a catastrophe? Hastings said, retelling the joke. "A crisis is if Donald Trump falls into the Potomac River and cant swim, Hastings said. A "catastrophe," he added, "is anybody saves his ass.' Cheers...

    Whatever teen anti-gun celebrity David Hogg learned in high school, it apparently wasnt the English language. Its that, or he actually wants to increase the number of gun deaths in inner-city communities. Either way, the poster boy for the gun-grabbing left is showing all the world just how confused and ignorant he really is. In recent a Twitter exchange with a conservative commentator, Hogg let his ignorance slip with a colossally nonsensical argument for the lefts favorite economic policy: Raising the minimum wage.

    On Tuesdays Andrea Mitchell Reports, two Florida politicians, a Republican and a Democrat, made back-to-back appearances to discuss gun control. Host Andrea Mitchell took a radically different tone with each interviewee both of whom are seeking statewide elected office in 2018 thus epitomizing MSNBCs inescapable liberal bias. While speaking with Republican Florida State Representative Jay Fant, Mitchell assumed an adversarial role, grilling him on his recent vote against a measure to ban assault rifles. Throughout the brief interview, she argued that the Second Amendment was not absolute, citing the late Justice Scalias decision in the frequently-referenced District of...

    MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell fretted Friday that the FBI's acknowledged error in not following up on a credible trip on Nikolas Cruz might serve as fodder for critics of the Russia investigation. In a statement, the FBI said Friday that "protocols were not followed" after someone contacted the bureau's Public Access Line on Jan. 5 with concerns about Cruz, who authorities say confessed to carrying out the Florida school shooting this week. The individual provided information in January about Cruz's desire to kill people, erratic behavior, disturbing social media posts, and potential to carry out a school shooting. The FBI...

    Only 28 percent of young adults ages 18-29 say they are “absolutely certain” of voting in the 2018 midterm elections, according to a new survey. On the other hand, the Public Religion Research Institute (PPRI) and The Atlantic also found that 74 percent of seniors said they are “absolutely certain” about voting in the midterm elections, in what the survey-takers described as a “massive” generational gap in voting intent. Overall, half of Americans are “absolutely certain” about voting in the midterm elections, which is about the same compared to the 2014 midterm elections. According to the poll, young adults are...

    Wexler retired from the Secret Service in 2014 after 27 years with the agency. ~~~~~~~~~~~ He had offered in the past to make security recommendations. The district finally took me up on the offer in December when a teacher on behalf of the schools security committee asked him to conduct a site survey of the campus. Was school security sufficient? they wanted to know. ~~~~~~~~~~ He said he printed out details about the school: its floor plan, bell schedule and an aerial map. Then he arrived early for his meeting Dec. 13 and pulled his truck into the visitors parking...

    U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson introduced legislation this week that would create a national gun registry. Known as the Crime Gun Tracing Modernization Act, the bill would require ATF to set up a searchable, computerized database of all records pertaining to the sale, importation, production or shipment of firearms. The agency would be given three years to get the system up and running. The fact that there is a law on the books that forces agents to comb through millions of files by hand is absolutely ridiculous, said Nelson, a Florida Democrat.

    The Florida government did not conduct background checks on thousands of applicants for concealed weapons for a year because the state employee was unable to log into the system. According to a February 2016 investigative report from Floridas Inspector General, first reported by the Tampa Bay Times, a state Division of Licensing employee identified as Lisa Wilde was unable to log into the system to actually complete these background checks. She never mitigated this issue. When determining eligibility for purchasing a firearm, applicants must undergo a background check known as the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), which is...
