    Nikki Haley, President Trump's ambassador to the United Nations, said Thursday that The New York Times knew she had not been involved in the purchase of expensive curtains for her New York residence when it printed a story implying she did. "They knew the facts and they released the story anyway," Haley told Fox News' "The Story." "I hadn't even taken the job when these curtains were picked out," she said. "We told the reporters that these were the facts." The Times issued an editor's note at the top of its piece, which was originally titled "Nikki Haley's View of...
  • Spanish Ballot Ruling Drives Democrat Votes For Midterms

    09/20/2018 12:09:57 PM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 16 replies
    A federal judge in Florida has decreed that 32 large county election officials must provide Spanish-language ballots, sample ballots and polling places with posted notices — a decision that will drive up the Democratic vote and perhaps provide the difference in close Midterms, including for Congress. The order by Chief Judge Mark Walker in Tallahassee is in response to the tens of thousands of Puerto Ricans who moved to Florida after Hurricane Maria last year. He wrote that not providing Spanish-language ballots to eligible voters would be a violation of the Voting Rights Act. “Puerto Ricans are American citizens,” Walker...

    Democrat Andrew Gillum holds a 6-point lead over Ron DeSantis (R) in the hotly contested gubernatorial campaign in Florida, according to a new poll. The Reuters–Ipsos–UVA Center for Politics poll found that 50 percent of voters surveyed support Gillum, compared to 44 percent who back DeSantis. The remaining percentage of voters said they support a different candidate or did not indicate support for any candidate. Gillum and DeSantis are running to replace outgoing Gov. Rick Scott (R), who is term-limited and running for Senate. The Cook Political Report, a nonpartisan election handicapper, rates the gubernatorial contest a “toss-up.” The Reuters...

    Sun Sentinel ^ | Sept 17, 2018 | Aric Chokey
    Nearly a decade after the Great Recession, the percentage of Floridians who were living in poverty in 2017 was at its lowest level since 2008, according to estimates released by the U.S. Census Bureau. About 14 percent of the Sunshine State’s population had incomes below the poverty line last year compared with 13.2 percent in 2008. That means between 2.8 million and 2.9 million people were living in poverty in Florida in 2017. The Census Bureau measures poverty annually and sets the threshold based on factors such as household income and family size, including the number of children. A family...

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | September 17, 2018 | Todd Shepherd
    The Democratic nominee for governor in Florida who ran a primary campaign claiming he was the only "true progressive" in the race is proposing a 40 percent hike in the state's corporate taxes, and is selling the idea in-part by comparing his proposed tax rates to California, one of the highest states for corporate taxation in the nation. "By adjusting our state corporate tax level to a modest 7.75%, which allows our richest corporations to receive a tax cut and keeps our corporate tax rate more than 1% lower than California, we'll be able to recoup at least $1 billion...

    Two Florida-based anti-gun groups have joined forces to put a constitutional amendment on the state’s 2020 general election ballot to ban “assault weapons” in the Gunshine State. The organizations – Americans for Gun Safety Now (AFGSN) and Ban Assault Weapons Now (BAWN) – must gather 766,200 petition signatures from registered Florida voters to place the amendment on Florida’s 2020 ballot. Once on the ballot, a Florida constitutional amendment must gain 60 percent of the vote to become law. “The assault rifle, and its ability to fire approximately one hundred rounds a minute, can be purchased legally with no proof of...
