The Stoneman High School JROTC performed heroically during the shooting at their school in Parkland, Florida.  Two JROTC enlistees herded students and teachers into a room and shielded them with kevlar, their quick actions undoubtedly saved not only their own lives but those of others under their protection.

We recently noted that the FBI dropped the ball on the Parkland shooter, having received a very specific and explicit warning about Nikolas Cruz in early January 2018. That warning, including that Cruz was a potential school shooter, was ignored by the FBI.

Yet the more we learn about everything that came...

This is why it’s so hard to report or even follow a fluid situation. While the leader of this nationalist group said Florida shooter Nikolas Cruz belonged to the group, it’s important to remember these people, like ISIS, long to remain in the spotlight and take credit for tragedies.

The FBI has admitted it received a tip from someone regarding Florida shooter Nikolas Cruz on January 5, 2018, but never followed up on it.

The person even told the FBI that Cruz had a “desire to kill people” and “potential” to shoot up a school.

BuzzFeed News dropped a bombshell today with a report that the FBI received a warning last fall from a YouTube vlogger and bail bondsman about a comment from a Nikolas Cruz. He supposedly said, “I’m going to be a professional school shooter.”

U.S. District Judge Mark E. Walker in Tallahassee has ruled that Florida’s process for restoring voting rights to convicted felons violates both the First and Fourteenth Amendments. The implications of the ruling, however, may not be so far-reaching since the judge hasn’t yet decided on a specific remedy.

The Order (pdf.) is...

Florida is one of three states who require convicted felons to obtain clemency before their voting rights are restored. Now, voters will decide if a change to the more than hundred-year-old law ought to be made.

Thanks to the legwork of advocacy group, Floridians for Fair Democracy, surpassed the 766,000 signatures needed...

As we look toward the 2018 midterms, it’s interesting to note that the GOP has reportedly given up on Florida’s 27th District. 

The district is in the Miami-Dade area and is largely Cuban-American, including as it does “Little Havana.”  Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R) has served this area when it was the...
