Pastor Warns If Trump Is Removed From Office, 'Guys That Know How to Fight' Will Hunt Down Democrats

Christian church leader Rick Wiles threatened that "There's gonna be violence in America" if President Donald Trump is removed from office.

Wiles, the senior pastor at Flowing Streams Church in Florida, made the remarks on his right-wing TruNews program Tuesday evening. He claimed that cowboys, mountain men and "guys that know how to do violence" would start attacking and "hunting down" Democrats.

"If they take him [Trump] out, there's gonna be violence in America," the religious leader said. "That's all there is to it," he asserted.

"However he leaves, there's gonna be violence in America," Wiles went on. "I believe there are people in this country, veterans, there are cowboys, mountain men, I mean guys that know how to fight," he said, "and they're going to make a decision that people who did this to Donald Trump are not gonna get away with it."

Florida woman leads police on hours-long chase through Big Lots ceiling after allegedly trying to shoplift (Fox)

Not exactly a "chase". Rather the the cops were patient. As was the right thing under the circumstances. 8)
A Florida woman wanted for allegedly shoplifting at a Big Lots store was arrested after trying to make her getaway through a less traditional route: the ceiling.

Kristina Perkins, 37, was in the store, located in Port Charlotte, for several hours on Thursday night before she "entered the women’s restroom with a shopping cart full of merchandise."

The store manager tried to check on Perkins in the bathroom, but noticed "several garbage cans positioned in a manner to barricade the door," the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office said in a news release about the incident.

Perkins was advised that she was caught and police were on the way, but she never left the bathroom. The manager went inside to check on her and noticed "tile missing from the ceiling" and Perkins nowhere in sight.

Eventually, deputies spotted Perkins "several times by removing tiles from various points in the ceiling." She allegedly didn't listen to their commands to stop, and kept crawling through the ceiling.

The store was evacuated "due to the danger of Perkins falling through the ceiling" as the 37-year-old allegedly led authorities on the odd chase, which lasted for roughly six hours.

As they were trying to capture Perkins, a deputy found her purse, which reportedly had "three syringes and a spoon with white residue that tested positive for Morphine" inside.

Eventually, around 1:40 a.m., Perkins was spotted coming down from the ceiling using a stack of shelves. She was arrested when she made it to the ground.

Big Lots, according to the sheriff's office, suffered "significant damage to their ceiling, duct work and dry wall" and will remain closed until necessary repairs can be made.

Perkins was charged with felony criminal mischief, petit theft, possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting a merchant and resisting law enforcement without violence.
Didn't know "resisting a merchant" was a criminal offense. :)

New Jersey and of course the UK have more traffic circles (roundabouts).

But where is there a traffic circle with a railroad crossing? :)

Republican interpretation: Getting away from high taxes.
Democrat interpretation: Getting away from that darn Manhattan prosecutor.

Moi (the voice of reason of course) -- Both. But also to be closer to his golf courses. 8)

Political long shot interpretation: He is dumping Pence for a new VP candidate from New York. :BigGrin3:

His Grace, the Imperial Majesty on the Iron Throne, the Immortal God-Emperor of Mankind, Donaldus "Pußygrabbin" I of the House of Trump will make Warhammer 40,000 real. He is a pretty cool guy and is the 45th president of the United States and isn't afraid of anything. Never half-piss around when President Trump is around cause He'll rape you for not fully pissing around, fire you for being unproductive, sue you for libel, and pillage your clan of its cattle and fertile women. Trump literally put an epic Just As Planned: exactly at the time when Hillary was gloating over cheating and controlling the Polls, the Donald unleashed his secret superweapon, the Silent Majority who didn't participate in Clinton's rigged polls but revealed their support for Trump in the election. Now Trump is on the Iron Throne, gloating U mad SJWs? while Democrats are committing mass suicide while yelling "You maniacs! You should have endorsed Bernie Sanders! Damn you, God Damn You All to Hell!!"

Professional cuddling studio opens in Florida

A mother and daughter in Jacksonville are getting paid to cuddle with strangers.

Joni Eitzmann opened "Cozy Up," a professional cuddling studio located in Jacksonville, Florida.

Eitzmann said the cuddling is platonic.

She said she received some pushback from the City of Jacksonville when she introduced her business concept.

"I had a lot of explaining to do," Eitzmann said. "They know all about us. We're not hiding in any way."

Cuddle sessions cost as little as $25 and up to $200 for three hours.

Eitzmann said she and her daughter also plan to hold cuddle parties every month.

Back to a story about Florida being awesome. :mrgreen:

Pregnant Florida mom uses AR-15 to kill home intruder
NY Post
A pregnant woman is credited with saving the lives of her husband and daughter after she used an AR-15 to fatally gun down a home intruder, a report said.

The hero mom sprung into action when two intruders entered the family’s Lithia, Fla. home last week and pistol whipped her husband while violently grabbing their daughter, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

“They came in heavily hooded and masked,” the husband, Jeremy King, told Bay News 9.

“As soon as they had got the back door opened, they had a pistol on me and was grabbing my 11-year-old daughter.”

The robbers then pistol-whipped King and kicked him while the man’s wife, who is eight months pregnant, retreated into the bedroom.

“When he came toward the back door in her line of sight, she clipped him,” King told the outlet. “He made it from my back door to roughly 200 feet out in the front ditch before the AR did its thing.”

Police said in a press conference that they found the man’s dead body lying in the ditch nearby. The second suspect was on the loose.

The homeowner said he took a “severe beating,” but credited his wife for saving him.

“I’ve got a fractured eye socket, a fractured sinus cavity, a concussion, 20 stitches and three staples in my head,” said King.

“Them guys came in with two normal pistols and my AR stopped it. [My wife] evened the playing field and kept them from killing me.”

The sheriff’s office added that the firearm was in the home legally.
Emphasis added.

The answer to the question of why anyone would need a "weapon of war".
