Polk County Florida Sheriff Grady Judge speaking about the riots/protests:

Florida “non-violent” offender released from jail due to Wuhan virus arrested for second-degree murder

Freed perp arrested for second degree murder/Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office photo

Who could have predicted that a criminal would not “take advantage of this health emergency to commit crimes?”

While the majority of law-abiding citizens are ordered to stay home, criminals are given a free pass in order to “save lives.”

Such is the case in Hillsborough County, Florida. WFLA reports that Joseph Edwards Williams was awaiting resolution of a low-level, non-violent offense. He was released from custody until trial.

The day after his release he was arrested for second-degree murder. The only other details provided are “second degree murder with a firearm, a gun charge and resisting an officer.”

The perp was originally in jail for possession of heroin and possession of drug paraphernalia.

No worries, though. The good Sheriff has called upon the State Attorney to prosecute this perp to the fullest extent of the law.

Florida Legislature passes abortion parental consent bill

Demorats are against this, of course, because it violates Rule #41.

From Yahoo: Girls under the age of 18 will have to get a parent’s permission before having an abortion under a bill passed by the Florida Legislature on Thursday that Gov. Ron DeSantis is expected to sign.

The House voted 75-43 largely along party lines for the legislation that expands a current law that requires a girl’s parents are notified before she can have an abortion. DeSantis asked lawmakers to send him the bill during his State of the State speech that kicked off the legislative session last month.

“What we are talking about is a child, and here were are talking about a child who is carrying a child,” said Republican Rep. Erin Grall, who sponsored the bill. “By including parents in this decision we empower the family. It is the critical backbone of our civilized society.”

The debate over the measure lasted nearly four hours.

The bill has a provision that will allow a girl to ask a judge for a waiver from the law in cases of abuse, incest or when involving a parent could cause more harm than allowing the procedure. But opponents argued that asking minors to negotiate the legal system when they are already scared and ashamed could drive them to illegal abortions.

“We are codifying into law that someone else can force a girl to have a child she does not want to have,” Democratic Rep. Susan Valdes said. “I worry that many girls will, when deprived access to a safe termination of pregnancy, take the risks of finding an unsafe, dangerous and untested method of terminating their pregnancies.”

She said that might include searching the internet for “mystery concoctions” in an attempt to end the pregnancy.

Democrats also said some girls might risk being thrown out of their homes or beaten if they tell their parents they’re pregnant. But Grall said that just because there are some bad parents, it doesn’t mean the rights of others to be part of the decision should be taken away.

“We hear the stories about the bad parent, the human trafficking, the intolerant parent, the abusive parent, the parent who will kill their child. I refuse to accept that we should diminish the rights of all parents in the raising of their children because of the acts of a few,” Grall said.

Republicans argued that children need a parent’s permission to go on a school field trip and can’t go to an R-rated movie without a parent or guardian, so it makes no sense to make a life-altering decision on their own.

“We require parental consent for a minor to get a driving learner’s permit because it is common sense. It is not common sense to suggest that getting a learner’s permit is a less significant life decision than a child getting an abortion,” Republican Rep. Ana Maria Rodriguez said. ”A parent guiding their children through major life decisions is a good thing.”

Florida will join 26 other states in requiring that at least one parent give written permission authorizing a doctor to terminate the pregnancy of a minor. Doctors who perform abortions without the parental consent of a girl under 18 would face up to five years in prison for a third-degree felony.

In 1979, the Florida Legislature enacted a similar parental consent law, but it was struck down a decade later by the Florida Supreme Court, which ruled that a woman’s right to privacy extended to pregnant minors. Bill supporters say the constitutional issue has been addressed in the current bill by including the judicial waiver and with a provision that would allow abortions in cases of medical emergencies without parental notification.

Once DeSantis signs the bill, it will become law July 1. It is certain to be challenged in court, but the current makeup off the state Supreme Court is overwhelmingly conservative.

“Too early” to say Pensacola Naval shooting was terrorism yet three Saudis apparently filmed the incident

Yesterday morning a Saudi national at Naval Air Station Pensacola opened fire and killed three people before being killed by law enforcement. The Saudi national, a member of the Royal Saudi Air Force, was receiving pilot training (are you kidding me?) at our military installation. His name was Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani (pictured above).

According to Breitbart, a total of six Saudis are being questioned about the incident. Three of those Saudi’s were caught filming the incident.

Yeah, no question about terrorism there AT ALL.

More from the NY Times:

“Six other Saudi nationals were detained for questioning near the scene of the shooting, including three who were seen filming the entire incident, according to a person briefed on the initial stages of the investigation.

It was not known whether the six Saudis detained were students in the classroom building, and there was no immediate indication that those filming the incident were connected to the gunman, the person said.”

Read their whole story here.

In my opinion, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to deduce that this was most likely an incident of terrorism.

Some demorats missed the message from Florida Keys: As seas rise and flooding gets worse, not everyone can be saved

The “climate crisis” hysteria has reached peak levels.

According to a story from Yahoo, “Officials in the Florida Keys announced what many coastal governments nationwide have long feared, but few have been willing to admit: As seas rise and flooding gets worse, not everyone can be saved. And in some places, it doesn’t even make sense to try.

The article explains how the county’s sustainability director released the first results of the county’s yearslong effort to calculate how high its 300 miles of roads must be elevated to stay dry, and at what cost. Those costs were far higher than her team expected — and those numbers, the director said, show that some places can’t be protected, at least at a price that taxpayers can be expected to pay.

It’s ALWAYS about getting the taxpayer money, isn’t it?

You can read all about the doomsday predictions here.

Yet SOME demorats – the really, REALLY RICH ones – missed the memo about rising sea levels and flooding. Just take a look at the following headlines:

George Lucas Buys $28 Million Beachfront Home in Carpinteria, California
Barack and Michelle Obama Just Paid $11.75 Million for a Martha’s Vineyard Waterfront Vacation Home
Mark Zuckerberg spent almost $60 million on 2 waterfront estates in Tahoe last winter. Here’s a look at the 10 properties he owns across the US, from a modest Palo Alto home to a Hawaiian plantation
Oprah has yet to visit her Orcas Island (waterfront) estate, but it may soon undergo remodel

HYPOCRITES, all of them!

Another TDS-infected fool: Florida man arrested after spitting on man wearing MAGA hat

How do people who are SO triggered by a hat get through real life?

From Yahoo: A 43-year-old man was arrested after allegedly spitting on a 67-year-old man wearing a “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) hat at a restaurant in Vero Beach, Florida, on October 25, local media and police said.

Surveillance footage released by the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office shows Robert Youngblood, wearing a red MAGA hat, sitting with two other men at a bar in a Hurricane Grill & Wings restaurant. The footage shows a man walk past the group and hit the brim of Youngblood’s hat. Police said the footage then shows the same man lean over a railing, spit on Youngblood, and leave.

Before the man slapped Youngblood’s hat, he told him, “You should go back to Russia, you f—-ing communist,” according to a police report.

The report said Youngblood took down the license plate of the car the suspect left in, leading police to a Vero Beach address for Laura Torres. When police visited the address, they said they spoke with Torres and her husband, 43-year-old Matthias Ajple.

Torres said she told Ajple to tell Youngblood to “go back to Russia as a joke,” and then told police she did not see the altercation, according to the police report.

Ajple told police he “supports” law enforcement and said Donald Trump supporters are “communist and racist,” according to the report.

“I don’t even care that I’m going to jail, this is actually exciting, plus I have more time on this earth than he does anyway, he probably feels so good about himself,” Ajple is quoted as saying in the report.

Ajple was charged with battery and taken to the Indian River County Jail, according to police.

Pregnant woman protects family with an AR-15; one perp dead

Score one for the Second Amendment.

From Fox News: A Florida woman who was eight-months pregnant and came out wielding an AR-15 rifle reportedly saved her husband and pre-teen daughter last week from a pair of violent intruders who’d broken into the family’s home — with the gun-toting matriarch fatally striking one of the men, who was later found dead in a nearby ditch.

Jeremy King was at his home in Lithia, 25 miles southeast of Tampa, at 9 p.m. Wednesday night when two armed men, wearing masks and hoods, broke inside.

“As soon as they had got the back door opened, they had a pistol on me and was grabbing my 11-year-old daughter,” King told Bay News 9. “I’m telling them, ‘I have nothing for you,’ and they’re like, ‘Give me everything you got.’ It became real violent, real fast.”

King said one of the burglars pistol-whipped him and another kicked him in the head, creating a commotion that attracted the attention of his wife, who walked into the room to see what the noise was — and soon found herself dodging a bullet.

The woman, who was not identified, reportedly retreated and grabbed an AR-15 that was legally inside their house, returning to the room and shooting the intruders, hitting one of them.

“When he came toward the back door in her line of sight, she clipped him,” King said of his wife. “He made it from my back door to roughly 200 feet out in the front ditch before the AR did its thing.”

The man was later found dead in the ditch, according to the news outlet. The other burglar fled when his friend was shot.

“Them guys came in with two normal pistols and my AR stopped it. [My wife] evened the playing field and kept them from killing me,” King said, noting he suffered a fractured eye socket, a fractured sinus cavity and a concussion, and needed “20 stitches and three staples in my head.”

Neither of the intruders was publicly identified by authorities.
—————————-

And because the media can’t let facts get in the way of their narratives, CNN reported that the woman used an “automatic rifle” to shoot the intruders. They corrected their error two hours later.

“Republican” mayor calls for his city to ban assault weapons because “my prayers aren’t working”

RINO George Cretekos

Mayor of Clearwater, Florida – George Cretekos – ain’t no republican, despite what this story states.

The proof? Just look at his Twitter timeline and some of his tweets and who he retweets:

Retweet of Paul Krugman: “I was warning about escalation, but things moving faster than I expected”

Retweet of Garry Kasparo (who promotes Renew Democracy in his Twitter bio): “As in Helsinki, Trump’s demeanor around Putin is that of a loyal dog afraid of being whipped. Joking with a dictator about his proven attacks on US elections is pathetic”

Retweet of Bill Kristol: “Excellent from @DavidAFrench at @NRO: “’Where is the outrage?’ The same question applies today, but to a different audience. The lies are simply too much to bear. No Republican should tolerate such dishonesty.” (Regarding Mueller report)

Retweet of Politico: “Opinion: Trump’s national emergency is great news for future President Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Cretekos a republican? Yeah, riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

From Yahoo: The Republican mayor of a Florida city is calling on Congress to take action on strong gun control measures, saying that thoughts and prayers just aren’t cutting it when it comes to America’s gun violence epidemic.

George Cretekos urged his fellow city council members in Clearwater to pass a resolution which would represent a potent message in a state known for its fidelity to the National Rifle Association.

“I’ve gone to church, I’ve prayed,” Mr. Cretekos said this week, referencing a common refrain after mass shootings in which politicians offer “thoughts and prayers” for victims, but stop short of taking any practical measures to prevent future shootings.

“My prayers aren’t working,” he continued, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Florida state law prohibits cities from enacting their own firearms regulations, but Mr. Cretekos’s resolution would send a symbolic message to Congress that it should move to ban assault-style weapons and high capacity magazines, to pass a national “red flag” law, and to expand background checks so they can cover private sales.

“In the past, council and I have stayed away from national issues,” Mr. Cretenkos said. “But I think this issue is something that we need to consider to let people know where we stand as a community to encourage safety.”

Florida is the state in which two of the most deadly mass shootings in recent years have occurred, having drawn national attention after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, and at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando.

Seventeen people were killed in Parkland by an expelled former student in February 2018, while 49 people were killed and more than 50 wounded at the Pulse nightclub in June 2016.

Mr. Cretenkos’s call for action is significant not only because of the state he lives in, though, but also because of his standing as a Republican.

In the past, Republican leaders and politicians in Washington including Donald Trump have reacted to shootings by proposing modest gun control measures, but have yet to make good on those promises.

The good mayor’s call for an assault weapons ban was shot down:

“The City Council on Thursday approved a resolution that called on Congress to pass modest gun control measures, but failed to go as far as Mayor George Cretekos had proposed earlier in the week.

In a compromise, the five-person council, which includes Cretekos, voted 3-2 to pass a resolution calling for the red flag law expansion and the stricter background checks. But the resolution was softer on the weapons and magazines. Instead of calling for a ban, it called for a “review of laws governing the accessibility of high-capacity ammunition magazines and military-style assault weapons.”
