Attorney General Ashley Moody asked the state Supreme Court on Friday to block the ballot initiative, which is being pushed by Miami-based Ban Assault Weapons Now, a group that wants to ban most semiautomatic rifles. The group has gathered more than 99,000 certified signatures so far, enough to trigger an automatic legal review of the amendment by the state's highest court.
In a notice filed with the court, Moody said that the proposal as worded would ban "the possession of virtually every semi-automatic long-gun. To be included on the ballot, the sprawling practical effect must be revealed in the ballot language."
Moody also said that a provision that would grandfather existing owners of semiautomatic weapons is misleading because it requires owners to register their guns within a year. She called the amendment language "deficient" and said it would mislead voters...
DeSantis has been quietly stacking the justice system with conservatives in FL. Hopefully this move pays dividends.
It’s 2019, and Big Alcohol wants in on legal pot — but only on its own terms. One by one, the largest beer companies in the world have announced their intention to create drinkable marijuana products. So brace yourself for an onslaught of alcohol-free weed beers and weed seltzers and weed fruit punches.
There’s only one problem: no one really wants or likes cannabis beverages. In legal adult-use marijuana markets, infused beverages make up a mere 2 to 3 percent of total sales. But the alcohol industry really and truly believes it can convince us that we want to consume weed the same way we consume alcohol, gulp by gulp. Molson Coors CEO Mark Hunter has said drinks could soon make up 20 to 30 percent of cannabis sales. That’s right: he thinks he can increase demand for marijuana beverages by a factor of 10...
“There was a pink blanket, baby blanket, and when I reached down and touched it I could feel a foot,” Smith said, adding he “could see the baby’s head with hair -- hair was still attached to it, smooth”... Smith will have to wait for an autopsy report to confirm the identity of the victim but he told FOX2 he suspects the body might be that of his older sister. He recalled his mother speaking about losing a child at birth and was even told by a relative that she gave birth to twins, one of whom she gave up for adoption and one of whom died.
The two missiles were launched from the Wonsan area early on Wednesday... The North called that launch a "solemn warning" to Seoul over its planned military exercises with Washington... The missiles were launched at 05:06 (20:06 GMT Tuesday) and 05:27 local time from the Kalma area near the port of Wonsan. The missiles flew 250km (155 miles) and reached a height of 30km before landing in the Sea of Japan, also known as the East Sea, said South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS). The South's defence minister Jeong Kyeong-doo said the missiles were identified as a different type from previous models. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe confirmed that there was no impact on Japan's security following the launch.
Transcripts are out tomorrow. The first demonstrable proof to show that not only did we not collude, but the whole world was against us and Donald Trump still won in 2016! When it’s all said and done, the story will be of a global effort to take us down that backfired big time!
Walker has sent a letter about his concerns to the secretary of the U.S. Navy focused on what are called unidentified aerial phenomenon, the formal name in military aviation circles for UFOs. The congressman, whose district includes Randolph County, wants to know how the Navy is investigating encounters by Navy pilots with unexplained aircraft or missiles while the pilots are engaged in flights... In his two-page letter to the Navy secretary, Walker raises the question about whether unidentified aerial phenomenon not only may originate from foreign nations but high-tech research and development of private companies.
Apple CEO Tim Cook said on Tuesday that the company wants to manufacture the Mac Pro computer in the U.S., and suggested that Apple is talking to the Trump administration about the topic... Previous versions of the Mac Pro before this latest redesign were assembled in Texas. But most of Apple's products are assembled in China — and the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times both reported that this new Mac Pro redesign would be assembled by Quanta, near Shanghai. Trump later said on Friday in an Oval Office interview that he expected Apple to announce that it was building a plant in Texas.
The gun shop doubled down and defended billboard on Facebook, saying that they will also be releasing bumper stickers featuring the congresswomen, two of whom are Muslim and one who is a former refugee. “Simple...eat a piece of bacon...tell us you're voting for Trump in 2020...then get your limited edition bumper sticker,” Cherokee Guns wrote.
The consumer products giant said Tuesday it took an $8 billion write-down on the carrying value of Gillette’s goodwill in the most recent quarter. P&G pinned the blame on currency devaluations since it bought Gillette for $57 billion back in 2005. The company also cited ongoing tough competition in the razor blade category...
Article says DSC and others have taken market share with cheap razors and slick packaging. No, they did it with quality products, less expensive packaging, reasonable pricing, and not insulting their customers with SJW bs. So many alternatives to their overpriced product.
Gillete joins the same ranks as Dick's Sporting Goods, Nike, Starcucks, any others.
Model Shanina Shaik revealed the shocking style news to Australian publication The Daily Telegraph on Tuesday. “Unfortunately, the Victoria’s Secret Show won’t be happening this year,” the Angel said... As for why the show is seemingly going on a hiatus, Shaik suggested to the outlet it may be because “they’re trying to work on branding and new ways to do the show.” Victoria’s Secret did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
Today, NASA announced it has selected 12 U.S. commercial companies for 19 partnerships in its crewed Moon to Mars efforts, which kicks off with a planned 2024 Artemis program crewed return to the lunar surface. The selections entail six key areas for future development as well as a category for other exploration technologies. They are: advanced communications, navigation and avionics; entry, descent and landing; in-space manufacturing and assembly; advanced materials; power; and propulsion.
In the past month, the Pentagon booted two Chinese recruits from the enlistment process because of their dead grandfathers, who lived very different lives.
One recruit’s grandfather, whom he never met, served in the communist military. Another recruit was removed from the program after drilling for three years because of the polar opposite — Zicheng Li’s grandfather fought against, and was tortured by, China’s Communist Party, defense officials wrote.
Screening documents obtained by The Washington Post detailing reasons that these and other foreign recruits were removed from the military reveal a pattern of canceled enlistments and failed screenings for fact-of-life events and, often, simply for existing as foreigners.
In one exchange in August 2016, Fleming noted that members of the FBI and MI5 had “met on our strange situation”, a veiled reference to discussions about Russian activities, according to the source... The text messages between the two men were infrequent and cryptic and did not contain specific or sensitive materials, but occurred with some regularity after the referendum in June 2016. A spokesperson for McCabe declined to comment.
US and UK intelligence agencies frequently share information, but the exchanges between McCabe and Fleming appear to reflect a desire for a direct line of communication given what was seen as a developing problem on both sides of the Atlantic...
Depending on where you live worldwide, the new moon falls on July 31 or August 1, 2019. Same new moon … different time zones. Thus this new moon is either the second of two July 2019 new moons. Or it’s the first of two August 2019 new moons. Either way, the second of two new moons in one calendar month is sometimes called a Black Moon. Here, in the United States, the Black Moon – July’s second new moon – falls on July 31. In the world’s Eastern Hemisphere, a Black Moon falls in late August.
You can’t see a new moon. It travels across the sky with the sun during the day. But the gravitational influence of the new moon and sun combine to physically affect our water planet, which people along the ocean coastlines may notice in the coming days. Moreover, this new moon is a supermoon, that is, a new moon happening in close conjunction with lunar perigee – the moon’s closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit... And, although you can’t see a new supermoon (because it’s in the sun’s glare), a new supermoon’s impact is real and profound. The tidal force of the extra-close new moon and the sun team up to usher in extra-large spring tides, where the variation in high and low tide is especially great.
What is the significance of two events happening so close to one another? Did you know that most women have their menses during the new moon? There are a handful of people that try to dispute this, but there is also scientific data backing it up. On PubMed for example, a synchronous relationship between the menstrual cycle and lunar rhythm was confirmed by investigative data, laboratory findings, and clinical experience. There are some women that ovulate during the new moon and have traditionally been given titles such as shamans or healers. But beyond that, there are many cults that use these events traditionally for spiritual purposes. Lots of things are about to drop in the near future, so events like these will be fully taken advantage of by those in power and others alike, especially since we know how much they're obsessed with the concept of blood.

Lawyers for President Donald Trump, House Democrats and New York state told a federal judge today that they have failed to resolve a dispute over the president’s state tax returns. "Notwithstanding their best efforts, the parties are unable to reach agreement,” the three sides said in a joint court filing.
They had been ordered by District Judge Carl Nichols on Monday to figure out among themselves how to proceed in the case, in which Trump is demanding a temporary restraining order to prevent Democrats from taking advantage of a newly passed New York law designed to give them access to the president’s state tax filings.
A message pad taken from Jeffrey Epstein's Palm Beach mansion in 2005 reveals calls from Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York and visits from Tom Ford. Many of the messages are from Jean-Luc Brunnel, a model agent who has been accused of sexual assault and rape by multiple women. There is one that appears to reference underage girls, another noting how much an 18-year-old woman 'loves Jeffrey'. 'He has a teacher for you to teach you how to speak Russian. She is 2 x 8 years old ... Lessons are free and you can have 1st today if call me back,' reads one.
Those messages mentioning the underage girls are from Jean-Luc Brunel the owner of MC2 Model Management. MC2 Model Management had their models work with Victoria secret and were in their famous fashion shows until at least 2015. Rachel Chandler is a photographer who has taken photos for MC2.
