Quote of the Day - Corey Stewart, Republican from Virginia

“I think Southern heritage is American heritage. Whether you were born in the South or whether you came to the South, you have an obligation to protect its history and its heritage, and it’s under attack.

You have the left, the loony left, taking down historical monuments. It’s wrong, and one of the reasons it’s wrong is, look, those monuments were placed there by a previous generation, which wanted to remind us and future generations of the horrors of war and what happened. They also wanted to remind us to give some appreciation to those who fought to defend the state. I think it’s just wrong to tear down history no matter what it is.”

Fake cop in Lake Worth gets arrested

Pot dispensaries in Lake Worth

Last night, one of our Lake Worth residents and a big supporter of commissioner Andy Amoroso declared that she wanted our city to become a destination. This would happen if we built a parking garage in our downtown.

It may not be the garage that attracts people but rather the two medical marijuana dispensaries that will open--one at 1125 North Dixie and the other at 1 S. Dixie directly adjacent to City Hall. We will be attracting pot users to Lake Worth. Now that's a proud distinction--to be known as the "Starbucks of medical marijuana" as one dispensary owner said.

Commissioner Amoroso says, "We can't say no..if no one else is allowing them to open, where else are they going to go?" It seems other cities passed moratoriums on dispensaries and according to the article, Lake Worth did not do that and now we have to accept the pot shops.

Read the article... 2 pot producers plan shops in Lake Worth.

On March 21, the commission on a 5/0 vote and 2nd Public Hearing established a moratorium and ordinance on accepting applications, confirmation letters, business licenses, development orders and permits involving uses relating to medical marijuana.

Waterfront Tower plan in West Palm Beach gets hearing

"Commissioner Shanon Materio and Commission President Cory Neering said they wanted city staff to explore and the commission to discuss other options to preserve the church and the waterfront...

Materio said Related’s plan amounted to “spot zoning” and she recommended another option: Have the city buy the church site for a public use other than a skyscraper, perhaps selling some of the land for a smaller development, to recoup the city’s money."

Refugees and the United Nations Agenda

“The United States admitted 85,000 refugees in Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 – 15,000 more than in FY 2015 – and pledged to increase its refugee admissions to 110,000 in FY 2017. The United States also increased alternative pathways of admission into the United States, providing special immigrant visas to more than 11,000 people at risk from Iraq and Afghanistan in FY 2016 – an increase of over 4,000 from FY 2015.

A day before the Leaders’ Summit, the U.N. convened at the U.N. Summit for Refugees and Migrants 2016, and statements from top U.N. officials at the event revealed that “replacement migration” continues to be a top priority for their global agenda.

“Replacing populations in the West with those from the Third World is also seen by the globalists as a great way to redistribute the world’s wealth,” Hohmann (Leo Hohmann, author of a 2017 investigative book, “Stealth Invasion: Muslim Conquest through Immigration and Resettlement Jihad) said. “We ship many of our manufacturing jobs to the Third World and they ship us their poor masses who can take advantage of our generous welfare programs while working in the factories that have not yet been outsourced. That’s a double whammy used against the American middle class, impoverishing Americans while improving the financial lot of those in poor countries.”

Lake Worth Workshop tonight on Penny Sales Tax

Please note that this workshop meeting is scheduled for 3 hours.

The penny sales tax was voted in by the electorate to be used for crumbling bridges, potholes, faulty school air conditioners and leaky roofs. It is estimated to generate $2.7 billion over the next decade with Lake Worth getting around $2 mil a year. The County plans on spending $31 million to build a homeless resource center in or near Lake Worth and renovate run-down motels for use as temporary housing for the homeless.

If you recall, the Trio along with city manager Michael Bornstein, wanted it to be used to bring the Atlanta Braves to John Prince Park. As that didn't work out for them, tonight we will find out where they want to spend this money. I have a good idea on what they would like to do with it. What's your guess?

  • Entire bill: $13.8 billion towards customs and border protection. This total includes the $1.6 billion that is being requested
  • $100 million designated for hiring 500 more border patrol agents
  • $106 million for sensors and aircraft
  • $131 million to invest and purchase new border technology
  • $109 million for inspection equipment that is non-intrusive."
Anthony Scaramucci said that the administration is on "missile lock" when it comes to the wall. “We have a list of campaign promises that are up on Steve Bannon’s wall and we’re going right through those campaign promises and so that we can tell the American people that we are citizen politicians … we’re not career politicians or establishment players that just want to sit in Washington and milk the system.”

Food Stamps

See Full report

"Enrollment in benefits increased by 70 percent from the year former President Barack Obama took office in 2008 to 2013 and can be attributed to the Obama Administrations effort to allow those with high incomes to receive benefits.

Obama signed an $8.7 billion food stamp cut into law as a way to placate House Republicans in early 2014 after they pushed for deeper cuts to the program throughout 2013. At the federal level, lawmakers are working on legislation to take food stamp work requirements nationwide and reinstate time limits on how long recipients can receive benefits." [Liberty Writers]

In case you're wondering ab out illegals:  Programs that serve undocumented immigrants include school meal programs, the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC), Head Start, and various in-kind emergency services. Undocumented immigrants are also eligible for Emergency Medicaid. This program typically covers acute medical situations including childbirth but not longer-term treatment for chronic conditions, even if they are life-threatening. The services provided vary by state. Emergency Medicaid is estimated to cost about $2 billion per year

Senate releases revised health bill

The Senate released the revised health bill; two Republican senators remain opposed including a handful with problems with the bill. ALL Democrats oppose but they will oppose anything unless it is a one-payer system or socialized medicine.

According to Ballotpedia, "The Senate released a revised version of the Better Care Reconciliation Act. The bill included the following changes:
  • Any individual may purchase a catastrophic health plan (under the ACA, this was restricted to individuals under 30 or those who meet a hardship exemption).
  • Tax credits could be used to purchase catastrophic plans.
  • An additional $70 billion between 2019 and 2026 would be provided to states for individual market stabilization.
  • The ACA's 0.9 percent payroll tax for Medicare would be retained.
  • The ACA's 3.8 percent tax on investment income would be retained.
  • Withdrawals from health savings accounts could be used to pay health insurance premiums.
  • A total of $45 billion would be provided to address the opioid epidemic.
  • Individual health plans in effect after January 1, 2019, would be required to enforce a six-month waiting period on coverage for individuals who could not prove that they'd had continuous health insurance for the previous 12 months.
  • Health insurers could offer plans off the exchanges that do not comply with ACA standards if they also offer one gold-level and one silver-level ACA compliant plan on the exchanges.
  • A fund would be established that reimburses health insurers for the cost of covering high-risk individuals.
According to The New York Times, Senators Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) remained opposed to moving the bill to the floor for debate. Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) said it was unclear to him if the bill was an improvement, and Senators Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) and Rob Portman (R-Ohio) expressed concern over the Medicaid provisions, which were largely unchanged in the revised bill. An analysis of the bill from the Congressional Budget Office is expected early next week."

We are a nation of laws for a reason. There should be no shortcuts for those who don’t want to pay or wait.” []

What in the hell is Lindsey Graham and Dick Durbin doing now?

Pretending that this is a bi-partisan decision, Sens. Durbin and Graham introduce DREAM Act that would grant amnesty and work permits to 2 million illegal aliens


{Numbers USA] It was less than a year ago that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) called Obama's DACA executive amnesty "unconstitutional". Now, he wants to make it law of the land!

Sen. Graham joined Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) on Thursday to introduce a new version of the DREAM Act, and like its predecessors, it would grant amnesty and work permits to approximately 2 million illegal aliens. Most of you are familiar with the details. It would grant amnesty to any illegal alien who:

• Entered the country before his/her 17th birthday;
• Maintained continuous presence in the United States for at least 4 years (although there are exceptions to the rule);
• Can pass a background check;
• Passes an English test; and
• Is either admitted to a U.S. college or university; or graduated from high school; or obtained a GED or a high school equivalency diploma; or is currently in high school or working towards a GED.

Although the bill's text has yet to be released, according to analysis posted to Sen. Durbin's website, there is no cap on the number of illegal aliens that can receive the amnesty and no end date. Further, the bill protects any illegal alien between the ages of 5 and 17 from removal, assuming that alien will be eligible for the amnesty once he/she reaches the age of 17. That means that any foreign nationals who can sneak into the country with young children in the future can all but guarantee their children U.S. citizenship. It's the amnesty that keeps on giving!

Once the amnestied illegal aliens have completed two years of college or military service, or worked a full-time job for three years, the DHS Secretary must adjust their conditional legal status to Legal Permanent Resident. Because their conditional status counts toward their naturalization requirements, illegal aliens could receive U.S. citizenship in as little as five years from the bill's enactment date.

The bill also repeals the 1996 law that makes illegal aliens ineligible for in-state tuition benefits. The Center for Immigration Studies estimates that this could cost U.S. taxpayers as much as $6.2 billion!

Lake Worth Advocate Group

Lake Worth will no longer be the easy place to carry out illegal activity, so says the newly formed Lake Worth Advocate Group.

Chip Guthrie, a member of Lake Worth's CRA, gave a presentation to the commission at Tuesday night's meeting on this newly formed group that began with the purpose of helping PBSO when those arrested come before the judge at the County Jail at 3228 Gun Club Road, West Palm Beach, FL. The Judge determines whether there is probable cause, etc. The judge will be notified of your presence in advance.

The Group's belief, and concurred by Cpt. Baer of PBSO District 14, is that it helps immensely when the judge sees citizens concerned about their community who show up for the proceedings.

The Advocate Group will let the Assistant State Attorney know if anyone has a desire to speak and will indicate that to the Court Deputy or the Victim Witness Advocate in the magistrate room. The Court Deputy will then inform the attorney that you are present and wish to make a statement. It is important that you inform the Court if the accused has threatened to harm you or your family in any way.

If you are interested in being a part of this advocacy group, please go to the NAPC website and sign up or to be notified via email at

Public Hearing by FDOT on 6th Avenue Interchange

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District Four has initiated a Project Development and Environment (PD&E) Study for the Interstate 95 (I-95) Interchange at 6th Avenue South in the City of Lake Worth. The project limits are from north of 12th Avenue South to south of Lake Worth Road along I-95 and from Michigan Avenue to South C Street along 6th Avenue South in Palm Beach County.

The purpose of this study is to identify short-term and long-term needs and develop design concepts to address traffic spillback onto I-95, improve interchange operations, reduce congestion, and increase safety at the study interchange. The proposed improvements will address pedestrian and bicycle modes and will ensure that the project corridor continues to meet mobility and safety goals as travel demand continues to grow.

The hearing will be held on Thursday, August 3 at 5:30 pm at the gymnasium located at The Club Managers Association of America Therapeutic Complex at 2728 Lake Worth Road. I was at their last meeting in September 2016 where we were told that plan implementation, costing anywhere from $9 million to $11 million, is needed to support the growth projected in year 2040.One plan involved eminent domain on property on the south side of 6th Avenue South.

Corrupt Intelligence Agencies?

In the quest to Drain the Swamp, some good guys will get caught up in the mire. And who knows, Robin Townley might be one of them.

(Angry Patriot) – "Ever since Donald Trump became the Commander-in-Chief of the United States, the swamp creatures of Washington, D.C., have lined up against him. No group has been more nefarious than America’s corrupt intelligence agencies.

In a vulgar display of power, the CIA withdrew the clearance of National Security advisor and Trump appointee, Robin Townley, simply because he had once criticized the agency. In essence, the CIA made it clear that they can deny clearance to anyone, even those specifically appointed by President Trump, according to The Federalist."


The above from the Angry Patriot is opinion. The CIA’s rejection of Townley’s application was approved by CIA director Mike Pompeo who was appointed by Trump which leads one to believe that there might have been good reason to deny the clearance at that time some believing it had to do with Michael Flynn. Townley is now working for Sonoran Policy Group, a lobbying and consulting firm as a senior vice president in defense and national affairs...probably making a heck of a lot more money.

House Appropriations Committee decisions

So much for Republican promises of making decisions that put American workers first.

The House Appropriations Committee has voted to use taxpayers' dollars to pay the salaries of illegal aliens who the committee decided should be able to compete with Americans for federal jobs. With the work-force participation rate for American millennials remaining abysmally low, the chance of landing a job with the government would be made still more difficult by the Republican-led committee's decision to make them compete with the some 800,000 young-adult recipients of the unconstitutional executive DACA amnesty. [Numbers USA]

Also in the bill:

ObamaCare – The bill includes provisions to stop the IRS from implementing an individual insurance mandate on the American people. The bill also includes a provision prohibiting funds to pay for an abortion or the administrative expenses in connection with a multi-state qualified health plan, with certain exceptions.
Other Legislative Provisions – The legislation contains several policy provisions, including:

  • A prohibition against the use of funds for abortion in the Federal Employee Health Benefits program;
  • A prohibition on funding to require that entities applying for or conducting work under federal contracts disclose campaign contributions;
  • Two provisions related to Cuba: a prohibition on the importation of property confiscated by the Cuban Government, and a prohibition on funds to approve the licensing of a mark, trade name, or commercial name that was confiscated by the Cuban Government without express consent;
  • A prohibition on funding for Treasury to implement a policy limiting the U.S. position on multilateral development banks engaging with developing countries on coal-fired power generation when the policy would limit exports or reduce U.S. jobs.
  • Maintains the six-day mail delivery requirement for the Postal Service.
  • Prohibits funds for the implementation of the Executive Order Establishing a Federal Flood Risk Management Standard.
  • A prohibition related to the Federal Election Commission’s prior approval requirement for corporate trade member association PACs.
