Let’s all take part in these online rallies with our lively fellowship and commentary here.

The first person in line said he got there at 3 p.m. Tuesday, coming from out of town.
  • Jaguars TE Tyler Eifert Wears David Dorn’s Name On His Helmet

    Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Tyler Eifert honored David Dorn during his Sunday game against the Colts. Eifert placed Dorn’s name on the back of his helmet for the big 27-20 win over Indianapolis. Dorn was a retired police captain who was murdered at the age of 77 during the riots in St. Louis this summer in June.  -snip This is a 100% pure class move from Eifert, and there’s no other way to put it. The NFL is letting players wear helmet decals with the names of people impacted by “systemic racism,” and it’s obviously become super political. However, Dorn wasn’t impacted by police violence, but...

    The so-called revolutionaries who were busted for rioting at a New Afrikan Black Panther Party rally took a break from their yacht club lives and modeling careers to be a part of the mayhem. The seven “comrades” — including wealthy Upper East Sider Clara Kraebber — had their mug shots tweeted out by the NYPD early Wednesday, days after their arrests for smashing storefront windows in the Flatiron District. They were cuffed during a protest organized by the Panthers and the Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement groups condemning the death of Daniel Prude, who was killed while in custody of the Rochester...
  • NFL stunner: Jags waive Fournette after failing to trade him

    The Jaguars moved another step closer to purging Tom Coughlin's tumultuous tenure in Jacksonville. The team waived running back Leonard Fournette on Monday, a stunning decision many outsiders view as the latest in a series of head scratchers that could help the franchise tank the season and get the No. 1 draft pick. “If that’s the case, then the realization is if that happens, then I’m not going to be here," coach Doug Marrone said. "At the end of the day, if I don’t win enough games or do enough with this team, I don’t foresee me still being employed....

    GREEN COVE SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) — A Florida sheriff says he will deputize every gun owner in his county to put down any violent protests his deputies can’t handle alone. Clay County Sheriff Darryl Daniels gave no indication in a three-minute video released Wednesday that any demonstrations are planned in his suburban Jacksonville county. Daniels also said he would protect any peaceful protests, but added that if anyone starts “tearing up Clay County, that is not going to be acceptable.”

    An Englewood man is accused of killing two teenagers last weekend after they noted how tall he was while they bought candy at a gas station in South Shore. Laroy Battle, 19, was charged with two counts of first-degree murder and possession of a controlled substance, Deputy Chief Brendan Deenihan said at a news conference Thursday. Jasean Francis, 17, and Charles Riley, 16, were “very good kids from really excellent families,” Deenihan said. They had gone to a gas station Saturday afternoon in the 7900 block of South Luella with a third friend to buy candy when they ran into...

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Motorists saw a startling scene Saturday morning as they drove along a Florida interstate: a mannequin dressed in a police uniform dangling from a rope at an overpass. Emergency crews in Jacksonville, Florida, were dispatched shortly after 6:20 a.m. to investigate a possible suicide. But when they got there, they discovered a mannequin hanging from an Interstate 95 overpass wearing a pig mask and dressed in what appeared to be a New York City police uniform.

    George Stephanopoulos asks Ben Carson whether it's appropriate for President Trump to give his RNC acceptance speech on August 27th in Jacksonville, given that date is the 60th anniversary of "Ax Handle Saturday" in that city, in which KKK members beat a largely black group of civil rights protesters. Carson says that we need to "grow up" and stop being offended by everything. Invited to comment, Stacey Abrams calls Ben Carson's comment "fairly infantile." View the video at the link.

    About 20 local community leaders and lawmakers stood in the hot sun in front of the site of the Republican National Convention’s final events and pleaded with the mayor to stop them in light of recent protests, the coronavirus and other issues. **SNIP** Many on Friday were also concerned with the impact protests that normally come with presidential nominating conventions will have on communities near the arena. Activist Hope McMath said the city is “struggling” to handle the protests that are happening on a daily basis. “To think that we will be ready in less than three months to handle...

    Jacksonville's mayor scored a major political coup this week: President Trump will deliver his Aug. 27 convention speech in the Florida city after a dispute over coronavirus-related crowd restrictions led him to mostly abandon North Carolina, where the Republican convention was originally planned. "We plan on having a full arena," Mayor Lenny Curry, a Republican, told FOX Business' Stuart Varney on Friday. Republican officials on Thursday evening announced that they were shifting key events away from Charlotte, N.C., after a public rift with the state's Democratic governor over social distancing guidelines.

    The city of Jacksonville, Florida, will serve as the host city to “celebrate President Trump’s acceptance of nomination,” Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel announced on Thursday. While the RNC’s Executive Committee voted unanimously to allow the “official business” of the convention to occur in Charlotte, North Carolina, the celebration of Trump’s nomination has been moved to Jacksonville due to North Carolina’s current coronavirus restrictions. “The selection of Jacksonville comes after Governor Roy Cooper refused to provide assurances that this celebration could occur in Charlotte, North Carolina,” the press release stated. “We are thrilled to celebrate this momentous occasion...

    Seeking a city willing to allow a large-scale event amid the coronavirus pandemic, Republicans have tentatively settled on Jacksonville, Fla., as the new destination for the premier festivities of the Republican National Convention in August, according to three Republican officials briefed on the plans. The details of the arrangement are still in flux and RNC aides are scrambling to determine whether the northern Florida city has enough hotel rooms to accommodate the quadrennial event, which typically kicks off the final stretch of the presidential campaign. Republican officials were in Jacksonville on Monday looking at the city and the surrounding areas....

    The move to reopen beaches has so far been a good one, Jacksonville Beach, Florida, Mayor Charlie Latham said Monday. “There is [sic] a lot of people that are upset that we’ve opened, but we’re not requiring anybody to go to the beach,” the mayor said during an interview on Fox & Friends. In answer to critics who said allowing people back on the beaches was the wrong move during the pandemic, Latham said social distancing rules were still in place and people were not allowed to lay out. “You’re not allowed to have coolers. You’re not allowed to...
