Mueller? Mueller? Mueller?

Democrats are running for cover as Special Counsel Robert Mueller failed to deliver the goods for them, and their efforts to make a legitimate case for impeaching President Donald Trump.

Trump capitalized on the failed House Judiciary Committee’s attempt to extract new information out of Mueller, taking a victory lap after the hearings concluded.

It was brutal, absolutely brutal. READ MORE

Meanwhile back at the ranch, VP Joe Biden is still the frontrunner in the Democratic presidential primary race, but is still being torched over his debate performance, his civil rights position, and for his support of a questionable crime bill when he was a U.S. Senator.

Sen. Cory Booker is leading the charge against Biden’s crime bill:

“Now he’s unrolled this, unveiled his crime bill — for a guy who helped to be an architect of mass incarceration, this in an inadequate solution to what is a raging crisis in our country.”

Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who is having a really bad time dealing with a police-involved shooting in his city, joined the rest of the field of presidential candidates at the annual NAACP convention in South Carolina.

Police are upset at Buttigieg’s response to the shooting, and appear to be in position to walk out.

While bashing Trump at just about every turn, Kamala Harris does make a good point about those past marijuana sellers, current felons.

“It’s wrong that people who were selling marijuana and are now felons for life are excluded from this industry. It’s wrong, and it has to change.”

Oh, in case you were wondering, Biden is crushing the field in the latest polls conducted in South Carolina.

AG Moody Continues Cracking Down on Opioid Crisis Abuse by The Floridian’s Daniel Molina

It’s sickening to hear that people, Americans are taking advantage of the the sick.


Wendy Berger, a judge on Florida’s 5th District Court of Appeal since 2012, was confirmed Wednesday by the U.S. Senate to serve as a federal district judge. The Senate voted 54-37 to confirm Berger as a judge in the Middle District of Florida, which covers a massive area, stretching from Fort Myers to Jacksonville and including Tampa and Orlando.


A federal appeals court Wednesday ruled that a lawsuit can move forward against Royal Caribbean Cruises, Ltd., over allegations that a teenage ship passenger was plied with alcohol and then gang raped in a cabin. A three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a lower-court decision that dismissed the case, which was filed in the Southern District of Florida.

Gov. Ron DeSantis continues thinking “green” as he unveils that the state plans to “significantly expand” the electric vehicle infrastructure. How will he do it? DeSantis will increase the number of those charging stations along highways like I-75 and the Florida Turnpike. Sen. Debbie Mayfield (R) likes the move, and reminds Floridian it improves air quality.

AG Commissioner Nikki Fried is not too happy with President Trump’s plan to cut food stamp eligibility, a move that she says will “hurt 3 million families seeking a hand up, not a hand out.”

Democrats conceding? FL Rep. and senate candidate Shevrin Jonesbelieves that the only take away anyone should have from the Mueller hearings is he special counsels belief that ” our elections are at risk right now.”

Rep. Anthony Sabatini is once again sounding the alarm against Florida “fake news” outlets who are accused of pay for play.

There are still around 200 unaccompanied children in Border Patrol custody, according to McAleenan by Telemundo

Clint (Texas) .- Acting Secretary of National Security, Kevin McAleenan, said Thursday that around 200 unaccompanied children remain in the custody of the Border Patrol, defended the conditions in detention centers and praised the impact “dramatic and immediate “Of Mexico’s work to stop illegal emigration from Central America.

In an exclusive interview with Noticias Telemundo, McAleenan rejected the accusations leveled against the Border Patrol and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), in general, about the mistreatment of children in detention centers.

“I checked the data a few hours ago and we had around 200 unaccompanied children in custody. The situation has improved significantly now that Congress has acted on a long-standing request to give us additional resources “to expedite the prosecution of children, explained McAleenan.

“There have been several accusations … one is that we did not have enough toothbrushes and toothpaste for the children in the El Paso sector. We have 29,000 toothbrushes in our supplies “and children receive food three times a day and unlimited snacks, McAleenan said. Read more

ICE will launch its macro-raid this Sunday: it hopes to catch 2,000 migrants by Telemundo

Raids to deport undocumented immigrants President, Donald Trump, repeatedly threatened to launch will begin on Sunday, as reported by The New York Times . The newspaper cites as sources two current officials and an old one from the Department of National Security. Two sources from the same department have confirmed the news to NBC News . 

The raids will be handled by agents of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Service (ICE). The authorities are targeting at least 2,000 immigrants who had a deportation order but were left in an irregular situation in the US. The number could increase if the undocumented are found when they meet their families.

ICE agents will act in at least ten major cities, including Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami and New York.

The operation will last several days, according to sources consulted by The New York Times . The possibility that undocumented migrants not previously identified are stopped during the raids is not excluded.

The aim of the authorities is to deport the migrants as soon as possible. Whenever possible, families will initially move to detention centers in Texas and Pennsylvania.

But there may not be room for everyone, so some hotels are also planned to house migrants before the expulsion process is ready. 

This Wednesday, the acting director of the Citizenship and Immigration Service, Ken Cuccinelli, said the raids “will absolutely happen.” And he said that in the US there are close to one million undocumented migrants. 

Trump announced the mass deportations in the middle of last June, but later delayed them. Democrat Nancy Pelosi, president of the House of Representatives, had previously asked her not to start them. Read more

Five Guy Arrested at Five Guys by Fox News

Now there’s apparently no guys.

Five guys were arrested at a Five Guys Burgers and Fries in Florida after allegedly getting into a fistfight, authorities said.

The Stuart Police Department announced the arrests on Facebook: “Five guys were involved in the fight, and those five guys found themselves under arrest.”

A witness said a cup was thrown and a door slammed in someone’s face before an “all-out brawl” broke out, according to an arrest report. The cause of the fight is unknown.

Three male juveniles and two adult men were charged with affray and processed at the Martin County Jail, police said. Florida law defines affray as a first degree misdemeanor charge resulting from two or more people fighting in a public place and disturbing the peace, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Keith Morine and Loren Perine, of Stuart, who are both 18, were arrested and booked into the Martin County Jail, the newspaper reported. The three male minors were fingerprinted, booked into the jail and later released to parents.
