Florida lawmakers vote to stay in Daylight Saving Time all year long

(CNN)Lawmakers in Florida are tired of the whole "fall back" and "spring forward" rigamarole. So they've approved a bill to keep Daylight Saving Time going throughout the year in their state.
It took the state Senate less than a minute Tuesday to pass the "Sunshine Protection Act." There were only two dissenters. (The House passed it 103-11 on February 14.)

The bill now goes to the desk of Gov. Rick Scott -- but it's far from a done deal after that, Even if the governor approves, a change like this will literally take an act of Congress.

But if all is approved, Floridians -- who'll set their clocks ahead one hour this Sunday when Daylight Saving Time begins -- won't have to mess with it ever again.

Florida will then join Hawaii and most of Arizona, the two places that are exempt from the Uniform Time Act of 1966. The Act established the system of uniform Daylight Saving Time throughout the US.

A time whose time has passed?

Efforts to kill off daylight saving time are nearly as old as the time shift itself. And many of the commonly offered rationales for daylight saving time (yes, it's "saving," not "savings") no longer hold true.

For instance, one reason Congress used in enacting daylight saving time is that it saves energy.

A 2008 US Department of Energy study reported that daylight saving time reduces annual energy use by only about 0.03%. And a study that same year from the University of California-Santa Barbara found it might even increase energy consumption.
Another study found the clock changes can raise the risk of accidents by sleep-deprived motorists.

The Four Democrats Who Met With Farrakhan And Still Won’t Denounce Him [VIDEO]

  • Eight House Democrats have met with notorious racist and anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan during their time in Congress
  • Four of those House Democrats now refuse to denounce Farrakhan (and two others have misled the public about their prior relationships with him)
  • Farrakahn’s close ties to the Democratic Party have re-emerged as a political issue after he was revealed to have been closer with several House Democrats than they let on.
Four House Democrats revealed to have met with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan during their time in Congress are now refusing Jewish civil rights groups’ pleas to denounce him.

Farrakhan is a notorious racist and anti-Semite whose closeness with the Democratic Party has re-emerged as a political issue due to three recent developments.

First, a Nation of Islam photographer revealed a 13-year-old photo of then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama smiling with Farrakhan at a Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) meeting in 2005. The CBC asked him to suppress the photo’s publication in order to protect Obama’s presidential aspirations, the photographer said. Twenty-one current House Democrats were in the CBC when Farrakhan had his meeting with the caucus.

Second, Women’s March leaders have come out in support Farrakhan gave a rabidly anti-Semitic speech in February with Women’s March leader Tamika Mallory in attendance. The Anti-Defamation League, a Jewish civil rights organization, slammed Mallory and other Women’s March leaders for their closeness with Farrakhan. Mallory had already faced public scrutiny over her relationship with Farrakhan. When she faced a backlash from attending Farrakhan’s speech, Mallory suggested that Farrakhan’s anti-Semitism made him like Jesus. As of this article, neither Mallory nor the Women’s March has denounced Farrakhan.

Third, new reporting revealed that several House Democrats had closer relationships with Farrakhan than the public had been led to believe. That includes Democratic National Committee (DNC) deputy chair Keith Ellison, who led the public to believe that his relationship with Farrakhan ended in 2006. In fact, Ellison attended multiple meetings with Farrakhan during...

NRA Sues Florida Over New Gun Control Law

Less than an hour after Florida Governor Rick Scott — who also happens to be running for the US Senate — signed the “Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act” into law yesterday, the National Rifle Association announced that they had filed suit against the state over the one of the law’s provisions.

There’s much in the new bill — legislation the NRA’s Florida lobbyist calls “political eyewash” — that gun rights supporters will find anathema, among them:

– A ban on bump fire stocks

– A three-day waiting period on long gun purchases

– The creation of “extreme risk protection orders” to seize guns from suspect individuals

But the provision of the new law that the NRA chose to challenge in court is the new prohibition on long gun sales to anyone under 21 years old. While wait periods, equipment bans and ERPOs are already law in a variety of other states, arbitrarily denying Second Amendment rights to adults of a certain age would seem to be the most promising target for a constitutional challenge.

Here’s the NRA-ILA’s press release announcing the suit:

FAIRFAX, Va. – The National Rifle Association today announced that it has filed a lawsuit challenging the State of Florida’s newly-enacted ban on the purchase of firearms by young adults between the ages of 18-21.

Florida’s ban is an affront to the Second Amendment, as it totally eviscerates the right of law-abiding adults between the ages of 18 and 21 to keep and bear arms. The ban is particularly offensive with respect to young women, as women between the ages of 18 and 21 are much less likely to engage in violent crime than older members of the general population who are unaffected by the ban. Despite this fact, the State of Florida has enacted a sweeping law banning all young adults between the ages of 18 and 21 from purchasing any firearm from any source. Chris Cox, the Executive Director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, stated, “Swift action is needed to prevent young adults in Florida from being treated as second-class citizens when it comes to the right to keep and bear arms.

We are confident that the courts will vindicate our view that Florida’s ban is a blatant violation of the Second Amendment.” The case is National Rifle Association of America, Inc. v. Bondi, and it has been filed in the United States District Court for...

Frowny faces at MSNBC and CNN reluctantly heap praise on jobs numbers

People vote their pocketbooks. That’s the old saw. The more money they have, and the better the economy appears, the better it will be for the party in power.

If you’re a stereotypical member of the mainstream media, that means you received some terrible news today. The jobs numbers came in, they’re very, very strong, and it’s almost impossible to make a non-ridiculous argument that they’re not directly related to Trump’s presidency. Oh sure, there are a few talking heads who are still trying to claim this is all Obama’s doing, but they sound more and more asinine by the second.

If you’re a major media figure who was desperately hoping for a “blue wave,” today’s report is nothing short of a disaster.

Maybe that’s why, when betrothed co-host Joe Scarborough reports the data, Mika Brzezinski looks like someone shot her dog…

...And maybe that’s why CNN’s Chris Cuomo and Christine Romans look so down in the dumps.

The fact is, if we continue to see these sorts of numbers, the “blue wave” (which is already in danger of being nothing more than a ripple) is going to turn into an undertow.

Democrats and their media allies have railed against every one of Trump’s economic policies. November is a long way away but, if they’re still fighting this success when the midterms...

Clinton Foundation Being Probed By the FBI That Gives Deals to Russians

When the Russians bribed a nuclear transport company in an effort to influence the sale of the U.S. uranium mine, their operatives were put on trial. As it happened, the evidence was discounted. The Russians got a deal. The case was quietly dispatched with a delayed announcement and little media fanfare.

It was at the time of the Uranium One sale, the one that brought riches to the Clinton Foundation and Bill Clinton’s pocket.

It was also part of Obama’s Russian reset.

The probe into the Clinton Foundation does continue. Perhaps this will come up.

The Clinton Foundation Probe Continues

The FBI informant William Douglas Campbell spent six years collecting information on the Russians and their bribery/extortion/money laundering operation. For his efforts, the FBI ignored his documentation, videos, and other evidence, and, instead, gave a deal to the corrupt Russians.

At the same time, the U.S. uranium mine and its many assets were being sold to a Canadian company who then sold it to the Russians.

The Russian bribery/extortion deal was part of the Russian effort to force the sale of the uranium mine and assets.

Everyone knew of the connections between the bribery case and the sale. The Obama administration, including Hillary Clinton and the FBI, all knew they were tied but the sale went through anyway.

The Clinton Foundation became $145 million richer from the firm whose stock went up when the sale went through. Bill Clinton also received a half-million dollar speaking fee in Russia from a Russia-tied bank.

There is an open investigation into the Clinton Foundation.


A recent memo by Democrats claimed the FBI informant offered no evidence Clinton was involved. His testimony was a nothing burger, it said, and she is absolved.

Democrats lied according to Victoria Toensing, the informant’s attorney.

According to Campbell’s testimony, Russians bragged repeatedly about the influence they had with the Clintons. They were so confident of the sale that they opened up an office 10 months before the CIFIUS approval.

The Russians told the informant that APCO was given $3 million to do work for the Clinton Foundation. APCO had been hired by the Russians.

Victoria Toensing said that alone is proof of quid pro quo, enough to prosecute....

Alabama: Muslim plotted jihad bombing for ISIS

“According to the plea agreement, Sayyed told people he wanted to attack police stations or the Redstone Arsenal military installation in Huntsville.”

These jihadis aren’t always going to be caught before they succeed in carrying out their jihad massacre. The Islamic State (ISIS) continues to inspire some Muslims, even in the United States, to try to kill unbelievers in the name of Islam. There is going to be more jihad murder in the U.S., even as the mainstream media is consumed with finding incidences of “islamophobia.”

“Alabama man pleads guilty to trying to help ISIS,” Associated Press, March 9, 2018 (thanks to RN):

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — An Alabama man pleaded guilty to terrorism charges Thursday, admitting that be bought bomb-making materials and had hoped to conduct attacks at a military installation or police stations.

In federal court in Birmingham, Aziz Sayyed, 23, of Huntsville, entered the plea to charges that he sought to aid a foreign terrorist organization.

Federal prosecutors said that, after watching videos from the Islamic State terrorist group earlier this year, Sayyed purchased ingredients to make an explosive and told others about his hope to use it in a car bomb or explosive belt. Sayyed also shared the videos and expressed his support for the terrorism organization and terrorist attacks.

According to the plea agreement, Sayyed told people he wanted to attack police stations or the Redstone Arsenal military installation in Huntsville. He was arrested after discussing his plans with...

WATCH — Tommy Robinson Knocks Out Migrant Trying to Attack His Cameraman in Rome

Citizen journalist and former leader of the English Defence League Tommy Robinson has released a video of himselfdefending his camera crew against an attempted attack by a migrant in Italy.

Robinson — who was in the country covering the Italian elections — explains in his video that he wanted to document the area in which journalist Francesca Parisella of Matrix Channel 5 was attacked live on air in early 2017.

“I tried to start digging deeper into Italy’s spate of high-profile, migrant attacks,” he tells the camera, before sharing the footage of what happened to him in the neighbourhood around Rome’s Central Station.

The video shows an altercation between Robinson and a migrant man who protests his presence in the area.

“I’ll get him,” the man is heard to say about Robinson’s cameraman, to which Robinson replies, “I’ll put you to sleep”.

Several minutes later, the pair are still arguing on the street, when the man approaches Robinson — who has his back turned — with his arms raised, shouting.

At that point, Robinson cycles around landing a right hook to the man’s cheek, sending him sprawling on the bonnet of a car.

Asked for comment, Robinson told Breitbart London: “While I was filming a report in a no go zone a group of migrants tried to attack my camera crew. They were screaming...

Half of new Democratic hopefuls are former CIA or other operatives

The Democratic Party in the United States is looking to capture a majority in the House of Representatives in the 2018 midterm elections. But as many as half of their new representatives will be former CIA and other intelligence operatives.

The potential flood of military-intelligence personnel into the American legislature has no precedent in US political history.

According to a bombshell new report from the World Socialist Web Site, tweeted by WikiLeaks founder Julien Assange, former intelligence and military operatives from the CIA, Pentagon, National Security Council and State Department are seeking nomination as Democratic candidates for Congress in the 2018 midterm elections.

The US House of Representatives is currently controlled by the Republicans, with a majority of 238 compared to 193 Democrats. To obtain a majority of 218 seats in the next Congress, Democrats must win over 24 seats.

It has been predicted that the Democrats will capture a majority in the House of Representatives on November 6. In this case, the US military-intelligence apparatus will comprise as many as half of the new Democratic members of Congress and they will hold the balance of power in the lower chamber of Congress.

One such a candidate is Elissa Slotkin, a former CIA operative who worked as Iraq director for the National Security Council in the Obama White House.

Her areas of responsibility include drone warfare, “homeland defense” and cyber warfare when she later worked at the Pentagon as a principal deputy assistant secretary of defense for international security affairs.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) has listed Slotkin as one of their top candidates.

“One quarter of all the Democratic challengers in competitive House districts have military-intelligence, State Department or NSC backgrounds. This is by far the largest subcategory of Democratic candidates,” the website noted.

“National security operatives (57) outnumber state and local government officials (45), lawyers (35), corporate executives, businessmen and wealthy individuals (30) and other professionals (19) among the candidates for Democratic congressional nominations.”

Military-intelligence candidates are disproportionately favored by the party and encouraged to run in borderline districts.

The DCCC has designated 102 seats as priority or competitive, including 22 seats where the incumbents will not be running again and 80 seats where Republican incumbents could be defeated.

They have almost unlimited funding for their campaigns too, to counter any potential rivals.

Federal Election Commission reports filed by all the Democratic candidates in these 102 competitive districts at the end of last year, showed that these hopefuls had raised at least...

Boom: Economy added 313,000 new jobs in February

We’ve been raising this caution for years: When the government talks about 100,000 jobs being created in a month, or even 200,000, it sounds like a lot. But the population is always growing, and when you consider the size of the country overall, these numbers really don’t represent that impressive a number of new jobs created.

Many economists believe you need to create at least 140,000 a month just to remain at replacement levels and keep up with the growth of the overall population. Others believe you need to create as many as 200,000 to tread water. So when presidents of either party of tried to tout numbers in the 100,000-to-200,000 range, we’ve tended to throw cold water on it. It’s not that we want to be buzzkills. It’s that we want people to understand what’s good and what isn’t good, and to make it clear that the United States of America needs to do considerably better than that if it wants to experience real prosperity.

How much better? Try . . . in the 300,000-to-400,000 range. Then we’ll say we’ve got something going on here.

Well, what do you know? We’ve got something going on here:

Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 313,000 in February, and the unemployment rate was unchanged at 4.1 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Employment rose in construction, retail trade, professional and business services, manufacturing, financial activities, and mining.

In February, the unemployment rate was 4.1 percent for the fifth consecutive month, and the number of unemployed persons was essentially unchanged at 6.7 million. (See table A-1.)

Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rate for Blacks declined to 6.9 percent in February, while the jobless rates for adult men (3.7 percent), adult women (3.8 percent), teenagers (14.4 percent), Whites (3.7 percent), Asians (2.9 percent), and Hispanics (4.9 percent) showed little change. (See tables A-1, A-2, and A-3.)

The number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks or more) was essentially unchanged at 1.4 million in February and accounted for 20.7 percent of the unemployed. Over the year, the number of long-term unemployed was down by 369,000. (See table A-12.) The civilian labor force rose by 806,000 in February. The labor force participation rate increased by 0.3 percentage point over the month to 63.0 percent but changed little over the year. (See table A-1.)

In February, total employment, as measured by the household survey, rose by 785,000. The employment-population ratio increased by 0.3 percentage point to 60.4 percent in February, following 4 months of little change.

Yes, that’s a good month. That’s a very good month. If we can start to generate that kind of job creation consistently, it will be indicative of an economy that’s growing on the supply side, which means that worker productivity is...

Steel CEO Says He's Adding 500 American Jobs Due To Trump Tariffs

"This feels like the beginning of a renaissance for us."

On Wednesday, U.S. Steel CEO David Burritt announced he'd be adding 500 Americans jobs with the reopening of idle plants because of President Donald Trump's proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum.

"We're really excited to be able to tell our employees in the community in Granite City, Illinois, that we will be calling back 500 employees," Burritt told CNBC.

The CEO said he was thrilled to restart formally idle Granite City facilities. The U.S. is finally doing the "right thing after decades of unfairly traded steel," he said.

According to CNBC, the process to restart the facilities, which have been idle since December of 2015, "could take up to four months."

"If you don't have customers here to sell to and you can't make money, you have to shut them down," stated an enthused Burritt, before thanking the Trump Administration for their "courageous leadership."

"This feels like the beginning of a renaissance for us," continued Burritt. "It's really important that we get this right, and now it's finally happening."

The CEO stressed the importance of "making things" here in the U.S.

"You've got to be able to make stuff in the United States. If you take away our ability to make things, you don't really have a society," he said.

"Just think about the way the U.K. used to have a big manufacturing base. It went away. If you don't make stuff, you can't have a strong country. You can't protect yourself, and you go by the way of Greece or maybe Puerto Rico," added Burritt.

Last week, keeping with his campaign rhetoric, President Trump announced...

Justin Trudeau Seems To Be Missing Something...

Facebook’s Digital Reign of Terror

Social media behemoth Facebook launched a full-scale assault on President Donald Trump and conservatives earlier this year that has seen engagement on Trump’s Facebook posts plummet by 45 percent.

The crackdown on conservatives and the Republican Party’s standard-bearer came after a year of unyielding pressure from the mainstream media, politicians, and Facebook employees after President Trump’s stunning electoral upset in November 2016. The Left’s farfetched Russia-Trump electoral collusion conspiracy theory scapegoated Facebook, claiming the website spread Russian propaganda and fake news that helped Trump beat the yet-to-be-indicted Hillary Clinton.

Obama leaned on a then-skeptical Mark Zuckerberg

No less a personage from the anti-Trump resistance movement than former President Barack Obama lobbied Facebook’s CEO to play rough and dirty with conservatives. At a poverty conference in South America a few days after the 2016 vote, Obama leaned on a then-skeptical Mark Zuckerberg to do something, presumably to help take his fingerprints off the electoral collusion hoax.

As the Washington Post reported:
Nine days after Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg dismissed as “crazy” the idea that fake news on his company’s social network played a key role in the U.S. election, President Barack Obama pulled the youthful tech billionaire aside and delivered what he hoped would be a wake-up call.

For months leading up to the vote, Obama and his top aides quietly agonized over how to respond to Russia’s brazen intervention on behalf of the Donald Trump campaign without making matters worse. …Now huddled in a private room on the sidelines of a meeting of world leaders in Lima, Peru, two months before Trump’s inauguration, Obama made a personal appeal to Zuckerberg to take the threat of fake news and political disinformation seriously, although Facebook representatives say the president did not single out Russia specifically. Unless Facebook and the government did more to address the threat, Obama warned, it would only get worse in the next presidential race.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) was one of the lawmakers who openly threatened Facebook.

“You’ve created these platforms, and now they’re being misused, and you have to be the ones to...

Elon Musk Makes Trump’s Case for Tariffs: No Level Playing Field with China

In a surprising turn of events, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has taken to social media to make a case for President Trumps recently proposed tariffs.

President Trump published a tweet yesterday stating that China was asked to develop a yearly plan for the One Billion Dollar reduction in their trade deficit with the United States. President Trump was well received during his visit to China earlier this year and notes this by saying that U.S. relations with China are very good and that he looked forward to seeing what ideas they came up with. But, President Trump urged that the United States must “act soon” to increase tariffs.

China has been asked to develop a plan for the year of a One Billion Dollar reduction in their massive Trade Deficit with the United States. Our relationship with China has been a very good one, and we look forward to seeing what ideas they come back with. We must act soon!
A surprising reply to President Trump came from billionaire Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who asked the President whether or not the United States and China should have equal rules relating to cars, specifically on import duties, ownership constraints, etc.
China has been asked to develop a plan for the year of a One Billion Dollar reduction in their massive Trade Deficit with the United States. Our relationship with China has been a very good one, and we look forward to seeing what ideas they come back with. We must act soon!
Do you think the US & China should have equal & fair rules for cars? Meaning, same import duties, ownership constraints & other factors.

Musk gave an example of this noting that a car produced in the United States and imported into China pays a 25 percent import tax but that China only pays a 2.5 percent import tax when sending their cars to the U.S.

Do you think the US & China should have equal & fair rules for cars? Meaning, same import duties, ownership constraints & other factors.
For example, an American car going to China pays 25% import duty, but a Chinese car coming to the US only pays 2.5%, a tenfold difference

Musk further noted that U.S. companies are prohibited from owning a majority share of their Chinese production factories but that there are many Chinese owned automotive factories in...
