Police say they've arrested a Florida man who's accused of threatening his neighbors with nunchucks and bug spray before cutting his own head when he accidentally hit himself with the weapon.

Neighbor Cici Sylvester tells WOFL she was surprised Adams used a bug spray since she was not a roach.

In a case that brought national attention to Florida’s  "Stand Your Ground" gun law, a jury on Friday night convicted a licensed gun owner on manslaughter charges after deliberating for six hours following a weeklong trial.

The defendant, Michael Drejka, was accused of killing Markeis McGlockton in the parking lot of a convenience store in Clearwater on July 19, 2018, after arguiing with McGlockton's girlfriend over a handicapped parking space. Drejka claimed he fatally shot McGlockton in self-defense.

A three-judge panel found a convicted murderer innocent of the 1979 murder that sent him to prison.

James Blackmon was convicted in 1988 of the murder of Helena Payton at what is now Saint Augustine's University. Payton was fatally stabbed in her neck in a dorm bathroom in 1979. The case went cold until detectives received an anonymous tip in 1983.

Both sides agreed Blackmon is mentally ill with a low IQ. In interviews with police, he wore a Superman-like cape and compared himself to Dracula.

His case came before the judges through the work of the North Carolina Innocence Commission, which ruled in November that there was enough evidence of Blackmon's innocence to warrant a judicial review.

A 99-year-old Arkansas World War II veteran who was presented with a series of medals this week has a bit of advice for the younger generation: “Stay in school,” and “Come out with the idea of serving people.”

Sergeant First Class Thomas Franklin Vaughns – an airplane mechanic with the Tuskegee Airmen who also served in the Korean War – made the comments to Fox 16 on Wednesday following a ceremony in Pine Bluff honoring his military career.

In a major blow to state-by-state progressive efforts to effectively replace the Electoral College with a nationwide popular vote, a federal appeals court ruled on Tuesday that presidential electors in the Electoral College have the absolute right to vote for presidential candidates of their choice.

Democrats have increasingly sought to erase the Electoral College's influence by promoting state laws that would force electors to vote for the national popular vote winner -- and those laws were now in jeopardy as a result of the court's ruling, legal experts said.

Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer shot back at critics protesting his selection for the new season of “Dancing With the Stars" Wednesday.

“I’m very comfortable with who I am,” Spicer told Mediaite after a New York Times critic and "DWTS" host Tom Bergeron protested his inclusion on the show.

Spicer told the outlet he’s going on the show to have fun and enjoy himself and he hoped that Bergeron would realize that bringing together a “diverse group of people can help instill a greater degree of stability and respect among people in this country.”

Spicer said he was approached about the dancing show after he left the White Hosue in 2017 but it wasn't the right time then.

Larry Swearingen, 48, who argued his conviction was based on junk science, received a lethal injection at the state penitentiary in Huntsville for the December 1998 killing of 19-year-old Melissa Trotter.

Back in April, 2018, I wrote a post about a North Carolina resident who lit up the internet with his passionate defense of the Second Amendment at a Greensboro city council meeting.  Mark Robinson gave an amazing, impromptu speech in response to the city’s push to cancel a gun show.

He didn’t intend to speak, but he was so inflamed by the anti-gun leftist rhetoric that he felt compelled to step forward.  The result was mesmerizing in its comprehensive response to every leftist argument for “gun control.”

The Singing Ringing Tree, A Landmark Musical Sculpture in England

“The Singing Ringing Tree” is a musical sculpture near Burnley in the North West of England built by architects Tonkin Liu. It was designed in 2004 and completed at the end of 2006. It is one of four landmark art projects called “Panopticons” built in the early 2000’s in Lancashire.

So typical.

It was just the latest in a series of slip-ups for the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential frontrunner.

Last Friday at a fundraiser in his home state of Delaware, Biden confused Burlington, Iowa, and Burlington, Vt., while trying to remember where he had given a campaign speech. The towns are about 1,100 miles apart.

Earlier this month, Biden said “poor kids” are just as smart as “white kids,” and last weekend he mistakenly said he met with survivors of the February 2018 Parkland, Fla., school shooting while vice president -- even though he had left office more than a year before the attack.

Politics / Warren has a spot-on lookalike she met face-to-face

Massachusetts senator and 2020 Democrat Elizabeth Warren was seeing double on Monday after meeting her lookalike in Minnesota.

Stephanie Oyen sported short blond hair, glasses, and a blue blazer at a town hall event at Macalester College knowing that her attire would resemble the presidential candidate's style. But she apparently underestimated how good of a doppelgänger she is.

“I thought it would get some giggles,” Oyen told the Star Tribune. “Then people started yelling, ‘Senator Warren!’ People were clapping and running up to me to take photos. I kept saying ‘I’m not her!’ but I looked up and hundreds of people were staring at me.”

Eventually, she had enough of the confusion she had sparked at the event and took off the blazer and glasses.

Here Are 5 Things They’re Not Telling You

The economy is booming, but who should get credit for that boom has been a point of contention between Democrats and Republicans.

Since President Donald Trump took office, the stock market has seen historic highs, unemployment rates have seen half-century lows, and the GDP is growing at a rate few economists expected.

The president is quick to accept credit for the roaring economy, often citing it as one of his biggest successes since taking office.

While it’s true that the economy improved under Obama’s presidency, that’s not the full story. Here are five things Democrats aren’t saying.

Trump’s economy is breaking records.

Following the 2008 recession, the Obama administration oversaw a consistent decline in unemployment and steady job growth. By the time he left office, the economy was stable with an unemployment rate of 4.7 percent — down more than 5 points from a 2009 peak.

Although the economy was stable, it was nothing to write home about. Under Trump, women, black Americans, Hispanic Americans and veterans have all seen historically low unemployment. The stock market hit all-time highs. The GDP grew at rates economists didn’t think were possible.

While Trump’s claim that the economy is the “best it’s ever been” may be exaggerated, he is still presiding over one of the best economies in the history of the United States — even if Democrats want to say otherwise.

Obama’s recovery was the slowest since WWII.

Many Democrats have been quick to say that Trump is riding on the coattails of Obama’s economic recovery, but none of them mention how incredibly slow that recovery was. As Forbes points out, Obama oversaw a jobs increase of just 1.72 percent in his first three years following the recession. For comparison’s sake, former President Ronald Reagan oversaw a jobs increase of 8.97 percent in three years.

In the same vein, Obama saw a GDP per capita growth of 4.34 percent — lower than that of Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush.

Obama claimed 2 percent economic growth was the “new normal.”
On the note of slow growth, Obama claimed that the stagnant economic growth the U.S. faced under his leadership was the “new normal” because of the changes to the global economy. In 2010, the president was trying to sell the American people on the idea that businesses were just becoming used to operating with fewer employees because of corporate greed.

Under Trump, Americans have seen quarterly economic growth rates top 4 percent — shattering Obama’s “new normal.”

Former Virginia National Guardsman Joshua Yabut was found not guilty

Yabut, 30, made national headlines in June 2018, when investigators said he took an armored personnel carrier from Fort Pickett in Blackstone and drove it more than 60 miles to Richmond, with multiple police officers in pursuit.

The chase came to an end in the middle of Broad Street, near City Hall, where Yabut climbed out of the vehicle and was taken into custody. He was charged with felony unauthorized use of a motor vehicle for that incident.

General Discussion Forum / THE TOLERANT LEFT

A Democratic state senator from Illinois came under fire over the weekend after pictures were posted online showing his supporters at a fundraising event performing a mock assassination on President Trump.

“The tolerant left,” wrote a Facebook user in response to the incident.
