The Democratic Party, with a field of nearly two dozen announced candidates, is getting set to open its debate schedule for the 2020 presidential campaign.

In the growing tempest of our social battlefield -- and the growing intolerance of special interests who preach tolerance -- Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Kyle Kashuv has been caught in the cultural crossfire. 

Weeks following the announcement that he had been accepted to Harvard, a controversy erupted. Kyle found himself on the receiving end of that now-common practice among social activists (on both ends of the political spectrum), the social media proctology exam.

The new abortion legislation taking hold in select states in recent months has caused an undertow among the backers of last November’s Blue Wave election, most demonstrably the gang of loudmouth Hollywood libs. 

And, in an unforeseeable result, the swell of Democratic Party gains in D.C. has led to staunchly conservative legislation regarding abortions to be passed. Not only legislation but some loud and curious reactions in some sectors of the country.

June 8, 2019 - 7:45am

When U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz was finished speaking at a town hall he staged in Pensacola over the weekend, a crowd of protestors was waiting outside to greet him. In case you haven't noticed, voicing opposition no longer is enough for some political opponents. Gaetz was coated with a dairy smoothie delivered by a citizen who is more than a perturbed constituent. 

Hurling creamy projectiles at our politicians may become the trendy new version of the op-ed feature. Certainly liberals have the hang of it and their pals in the media get a giggle out of it.

The Florida Democrats' Big Calendar Clunker

May 29, 2019 - 6:30am

With an eye on next year’s hoped-for takeover of the White House, the Democrats are feeling a surge of pride and excitement. Many are convinced by their own press complex that Donald Trump is the most hated president since Frank Underwood, so defeating him should be a walkover. Which may be why a stampede has formed for the blue-party nomination.

And, yet, just as Leadership Blue 2019, the state’s biggest liberal event of the 2020 campaign season so far is taking place, no candidates will RSVP. Not a one.

The sky is beginning to fall for a number of City of Tallahassee power players, at least the ones not named Andrew Gillum.

So, you might ask yourself, was the deal Gillum struck April 24 with the lightweight Florida Ethics Commission to pay a $5,000 fine in exchange for the commission dropping four of five corruption charges against him maybe the smartest move he'll make all year?
