Breaking: Marco Rubio Just Got TERRIBLE News That Will Have Trump Grinning

Marco Rubio is under pressure to win big in his home state of Florida. But that might be a big problem for him if poll numbers don’t change.

The Florida Republican primary will be March 15 and, according to the latest Quinnipiac poll, Donald Trump is ahead of Rubio in Florida.

The poll shows Trump is leading with 44 percent. Rubio is second with 28 percent while Ted Cruz has 12 percent. John Kasich has 7 percent while Ben Carson generated just 4 percent.

Rubio appeared on CBS This Morning Wednesday and was asked about his Florida chances. Gayle King, reminding Rubio that he’s trailing in the polls, asked him in which state he planned on beating Trump.

“We’ll win in Florida now that Gov. Bush is no longer in the race,” Rubio said with confidence.

But Rubio’s rationale of winning Florida is problematic, because the Quinnipiac poll did not have Jeb Bush as an option for respondents because he dropped out of the race prior to the survey. As a result, there are no Bush votes available in the poll results that would shift to Rubio

Rubio may need to rely on the field of Republican candidates dwindling by the time the Florida primary is held, something which he told CBS needs to happen. The results of next week’s Super Tuesday Republican primaries may indeed encourage some of the remaining candidates like Carson and Kasich to end their race for the presidency. If Carson and Kasich do drop out, Trump, Rubio and Cruz would be the only remaining candidates and may give Rubio and Cruz a better chance of winning the primary.

Richard Rainey of the Times-Picayune explained Super Tuesday’s importance. “Super Tuesday is the nickname given to the one day in every Republican and Democratic presidential primary cycle where the most states vote at once, often dramatically culling the candidate field before the summer’s national conventions,” Rainey writes.

The 10 states holding primaries on Super Tuesday Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont and Virginia.

Nation Of Islam Leader Just Made HUGE Offer To Beyonce That’s Going To Raise Some Eyebrows

The leader who once told a Miami crowd to “stalk” and “kill” in the wake of police shootings of black males has offered to protect pop star Beyoncé now that Florida police officers are boycotting her concerts in light of her Black Power Super Bowl halftime performance.

Farrakhan was speaking Sunday in Detroit on the final day of the annual Nation of Islam’s convention when he mentioned Beyoncé, whose Super Bowl halftime show saluted the Black Panthers, a militant and violent group that advocated and conducted violence against police officers.

“She started talking all that black stuff … and white folks were like, ‘We don’t know how to deal with that,’” Farrakhan said. “Look at how you treatin’ Beyoncé now. You gonna picket. You not gonna offer her police protection. But the FOI (Fruit of Islam, the group’s security team) will.”

In July of 2015, during a Miami speech, Farrakhan had expressed his feelings on the subject of the police.

“If the federal government won’t intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us,” said Farrakhan on July 30th. “Stalk them and kill them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling!”

Last week, the Miami Fraternal Order of Police announced that it would boycott Beyoncé’s April 26th concert in Miami. The Miami action followed an instance in Tampa where police officers refused to sign up to provide security for Beyoncé’s upcoming concert there, which would have meant extra money for them.

“While Beyoncé physically saluted the 50th anniversary of the Black Panthers movement at the Super Bowl, I salute NYPD Officer Richard Rainey, who succumbed to his injuries … from being shot by two Black Panthers who he had pulled over in a traffic stop,” Miami FOP President Javier Ortiz said. Rainey was hit 14 times in the 1981 shooting, and died in 2015. His partner, Officer John Scarangella, was killed in the attack amid the hail of 28 shots fired by the attackers.

4 Students Bring Small Confederate Flags To Cafeteria… Pure Chaos Ensues, Leaves School Reeling

A Confederate flag incident at a Florida high school last week started with a small fight and escalated to reports of mass gun violence to be perpetrated against students this week.

The incident occurred last Thursday at Westport High School in Ocala, when four students brought small Confederate flags to school and began waving them during lunch.

“An African-American student at the school was offended by the flags and punched one of the students. She was given a juvenile civil citation for hitting, and the four students who brought the flags were being disciplined by the school, officials said,” according to WFTV. 

“Poor decisions of a few of our students led to this,” West Port Principal Jayne Ellspermann said Friday about the incident, the Ocala Star-Banner reported.

Ocala police Sgt. Robie Bonner told the news outlet that numerous parents called the station over the weekend to report threats of possible violence at the school Monday being posted online. Investigators responded by interviewing dozens of students Sunday.

“There were no credible threats,” Booner said.

According to WFTV, approximately 1600 of the school’s 2600 students stayed home on Monday, nonetheless, based on the online rumors.

Ocala police beefed up security at the high school, sending in nine officers to patrol the campus.

West Port principal Jayne Ellspermann, who was national principal of the year in 2014, said the district is now going through the online threats and tracking down the sources of other rumors. Those found to be involved may face discipline for “causing a school disruption,” the Banner reports.

“I want her to go to school for the socialization aspect, but I’m like, ‘Do I just keep her home and do online schooling?’ I don’t want to do that, but it makes me kind of consider venturing into that,” parent Vanessa Smith told WFTV.

As reported by Western Journalism, a bill is being considered in the Florida legislature that would ban the Confederate flag from all state property.

What These 3 Letters Spell Out On New Fla. License Plates Have Some Drivers LIVID

Some Orange County, Florida residents are complaining about the license plates they were issued. The plates are so offensive to some drivers that they’re refusing to drive their cars until they’re able to swap out their plates for a new one.

The license plates in question spell the word “GAY.” Driver Craig Lukas recently purchased a car with his partner and was given one of the “GAY” license plates. Lukas, who says he “prefers to remain quiet” about his lifestyle, was offended that the state would issue a license plate.

Some states, like Maryland, have “objectionable plate lists” in which over 4000 words and letter combinations are banned from being used on license plates. Personalized plates or “vanity plates” in Maryland are subjected to scrutiny to ensure the content on the personalized plates are not offensive or objectionable.

Scott Calvert of the Baltimore Sun wrote, “State law allows the MVA to deny tags that have a scatological or sexual meaning; use curse words, epithets or obscenities; carry a “fraudulent or deceptive purpose” (FBI and CIA are banned); refer to illegal acts (sorry, no HEROIN or KILLALL) or convey messages about a group’s race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or disability.”

WFTV Channel 9 interviewed Lukas. “There are plenty of combinations out there that they state could have used,” he said. “It was a definite oversight on the part of the state as far as I’m concerned.”

Kelly Quintero, Communications Director with the Orange County Tax Collector’s office replied to WFTV, “These plates have been vetted by the state and we see no issue with them.” Another official from the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reported that the plates were only given out in the Orlando, FL, area. If a customer is unhappy, the official told WFTV, they can exchange the plates.

Another reporter, John Wright of Towleroad opined about the scandal, “Who knows, maybe some homophobes at the DMV ordered the “GAY” license plates because they’re angry still about the legalization of same-sex marriage. Or perhaps it was an LGBT employee who wanted to rub it in the face of the department.”

Group Flies Confederate Flag Over State Capitol, But It’s The 4 Words Next To It That Has Dems FURIOUS

A group seeking to protest a bill that would ban the display of the Confederate flag on Florida state property flew an airplane banner of the flag over the state capital on Tuesday.

The banner flown over Tallahassee, which belongs to the group Save Southern Heritage, also promised, “We’ll Remember in Nov.”

“We want to let the legislature know that there are a lot of Floridians watching what happens,” David McCallister, a Save Southern Heritage spokesperson, told the media. “These initiatives are draconian, expensive and irreversible. Once history is gone, it’s gone.”

The group tweeted about its flyover:

Breitbart reported, “Another measure making its way through the legislature is Senate Bill 310, intended to remove the statue of Florida’s Confederate Lt. General E. Kirby Smith from the Capitol Visitor Center in Washington D.C.” 

Some responded on Twitter to the sight of the airplane banner.

Also on Tuesday, a rally was held on the capitol grounds in Jackson, Miss., to protest the removal of the Confederate symbol from the state’s flag. Between 100 and 200 people were in attendance.

“Mississippi House Speaker Philip Gunn said this week that it’s his belief it is time for a new flag. The state legislature could implement such a change or put it on the ballot as a referendum and let voters decide,” UPI reported

Last July, in the wake of the Charleston shooting, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and several other state leaders oversaw the moving of the Confederate flag from the capitol grounds to the state museum.

“There is a place for that flag; it’s not in a place that represents all people in South Carolina,” she said
