Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin
My bet is, U.S. Rep. John Mica is about to be vindicated. You might remember the Republican congressman from Central Florida took it on the chin after he questioned FBI Director James Comey during a July 9 House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing.

It’s fashionable these days to hear that medical pot -- Amendment 2 -- is going to win at the ballot box and become a part of our Constitution. Not so fast.

Last week, the U.N.'s premier cultural agency, UNESCO, approved a resolution viciously condemning Israel (referred to as "the Occupying Power") for various alleged trespasses and violations of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Back in 2013, immigration reform was being discussed in Congress, much like it has been during this presidential election.

The system is rigged and the polls are phony.

It's not so bad, says the Obama administration. So what if health insurance premiums under the Affordable Care Act are going up in 2017? No biggee. Most people affected will get increased subsidies to make up the difference. Problem solved.

Hillary Clinton is turning to a familiar figure from the national political stage to help boost her chances in Florida--even if her new ally isn’t always a reliable one for Democrats.
