Mike Pompeo met with Kim Jong un

The Secret Meeting Between “Little Rocket Man” And The CIA

President Trump Tweeted: “Mike Pompeo met with Kim Jong Un in North Korea last week. Meeting went very smoothly and a good relationship was formed. Details of Summit are being worked out now. Denuclearization will be a great thing for World, but also for North Korea!”

Illegal alien involved in hit-and-run death

I guess the low-life should have lived in Crazy California instead of Nebraska.

"Velasquez-Oritz reportedly has prior convictions, including a DUI. His employer claimed he wasn’t aware the man was an illegal alien. “The state would suggest that he’s a high flight risk,” said Douglas County attorney Jameson Cantwell during the court appearance. “He is here illegally, from Guatemala. He avoided police after this incident. When he was located and arrested, he was found with fraudulent state, federal and international identification documents.”

Commissioner Omari Hardy says Lake Worth is handcuffed

This morning, Lake Worth was on the news for its gun ban resolution. Commissioners Hardy and Robinson were featured.

As you recall, they both promoted their morality on the entire City of Lake Worth with Hardy stating his view is what the majority believes. How presumptuous can you get? He says he respects the law but in the same breath says "I hate it," and it "sucks." He wants to close down the gun show at the Scottish Rite, a monthly business in Lake Worth. He even entertained the idea of suing the State of Florida because he is against the State "hollowing out Home Rule," an act he feels is unconstitutional. The city attorney will look into it. Hardy has no problem incurring legal fees here.

I remember when the City of Lake Worth said that the State had precedent on a law it enacted three months after our Heights Amendment passed with 58% at the polls and therefore our vote was moot.  They told us, too bad, so sad. But like a lot of puffed up elected officials, laws are only good when they agree with their political agenda. View the video below.

City of Lake Worth's Charette on the beach complex

The city wants you to bring your questions and ideas to the meeting.

My only question is, Why do you continually want to screw up our beach and spend millions? A parking garage built into the dune? We just spent $5 million on the upper and lower level parking areas. It's easy to spend other people's money. We just spent $6 million on the casino. This is a beach park and the city is determined to make it into a commercial enterprise.

Governor Rick Scott's agreement with the Seminole Indians

Do judges allow their personal political feelings ever enter into their decisions? Nawh, no, of course not.

Commission Meeting ends in Liberal stand on Resolutions

Assault Weapon Ban and Welcoming (Sanctuary) City status are voted in for Lake Worth

The mayor was absent last night--an anniversary in her family. Perhaps that was a good thing...she didn't have to involve herself in a losing discussion that went along Democrat party lines. This is why I have stated that I will never vote for a Democrat even on a local level. They always and only represent their liberal philosophy and are always bringing their moral beliefs into everything and shoving them down our throats. Accept them or stand in the corner and shut up.

They even went against a private business, the monthly gun show at the Scottish Rite. Hardy and Robinson would like the city to take a stand against the show even operating with Hardy blaming the State of Florida for disempowering cities to actually do something about it.  Can you even imagine a government not allowing a legal business to operate in America? And Hardy even wants to sue the State of Florida and Robinson said that "Tallahassee does the bad."

Regarding the two important resolutions on the agenda, that of banning assault weapons and becoming a sanctuary city, Omari Hardy dominated the conversation. It would be really great if commissioners all had equal time to express their opinions but they never do especially since Omari Hardy was elected.

Commissioner Hardy debated and gave his position on these two important resolutions--guns and sanctuary city status. He must have been on the debate team at the University of Miami. Maybe he missed his calling and should have been a lawyer. Even scarier, he's teaching our children. Although Scott Maxwell had some objections, he was impotent and ineffectual after the Omari Hardy dominance. Hardy just kept saying it was just a discussion. No it was not. It was a full fledged assault using all the plays in the liberal playbook to make your points, Commissioner.

And to make everyone who disagrees feel better, the city attorney will put a caveat (another WHEREAS) at the end of the Resolution stating that Lake Worth is NOT a Sanctuary City. What a complete farce.

And both resolutions passed on a 4/0 vote in spite of one Republican on the dais who was essentially against. But as Scott Maxwell has said in the past, you have to pick your battles. These battles were destined for defeat by Democrat commissioners in a Democrat city. Besides, down the road, Maxwell might need his cohorts on the dais for something he wants like destroying our pool. Maxwell, no longer with fire and passion in his belly, voted for the resolutions.

David Hogg planning another school Walk-Out

David Hogg had announced a walkout over guns. A walkout that was planned for April 20th, the 19th anniversary of the shooting deaths of Columbine students.

But Columbine won't have any part of it and that's not quite what Hogg had counted on. The students at Columbine did not want to walk out of school. They have made it a day to volunteer, not to complain about guns.

They sent Hogg a letter to that effect. Hogg is telling his followers that everyone else will be still walking out.

Read about the Hogg... Hogg won't be happy until he helps destroy everything in his wake.

Cut the numbers of immigrants to our country

I say cut the numbers immigrating here back to the 1950's level. We are over-populated as it is. "In the six decades from 1950 to 2010, the U.S. population had increased from 157.8 million to 312.2 million, a total gain of 98% at an average annual rate of 1.1%." [Pew]

President Trump wants immigrants who can “contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation."

City of Lake Worth to Ban assault weapons

The liberals feel empowered--As the mayor would say, this is "pontificating." It is meaningless at this point and nothing more than a wish--up the ante, make it more difficult for people to have guns and watch out 2nd Amendment.

Once again, Democrats Omari Hardy and Herman Robinson have been determined to ban assault weapons in our city or what they believe to be assault weapons but they can't tell you what exactly they want banned.  If someone wants an assault weapon, he will get one.

What is their definition of an "assault" weapon? How far will this hopeful ban go?  Will they want to ban conceal carry next?  President Trump is all for extensive background checks, raising the minimum age to 21 and the Fix NICS Act that would ensure that states and federal agencies comply with existing law on reporting criminal history records to the national background check system.

Resolution 17-2018 ban on assault weapons

The Resolution advocates for common-sense policies that keep guns out of dangerous hands while respecting the rights of law-abiding gun owners, and strongly believes that Congress and state governments should take action to close deadly gaps in the NICS.

February 14, 2018, a mass shooting occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida killing 17 students, teachers and coaches and wounding 14 others, 5 with life-threatening injuries.

Commissioners Robinson and Hardy have requested that the City take a position advocating for changes by lawmakers at the Federal and State levels to significantly improve the processes such as background checks and for designating certain devices and weapons as illegal.

Lake Worth to become a Sanctuary City by Proclamation

Tonight Lake Worth will become a Sanctuary City.

Forget about the small town charm.  We have seen our city erode through the years and its administration's secret desire to become a mini-West Palm this case, a Welcoming City. We have been "welcoming" the illegal alien for years. It started with the Mentoring Center and allowing illegals to congregate on Lake Avenue as a morning labor pick-up area. Now it will be official--ya'll come to Lake Worth--bring us your tired and poor from all ports south. This decision will really attract investment.

I don't know why the City has to have a proclamation about this other than to slap down the Trump administration--they already have thousands of illegal aliens walking around and living here unperturbed. The PBSO does not ask suspected criminals their legal status. If you recall, the Department of Justice put West Palm Beach on a list of cities that are not in compliance with Federal Law ever since it became a "welcoming city." WPB sued the federal government telling them essentially to "stick it." And that's what Lake Worth is doing.

At the end of last year, the Department of Justice announced that sanctuary jurisdictions will lose access to certain federal law enforcement grants if they prohibit officials from communicating with ICE. These particular grants, known as the Byrne Justice Assistance Grants, are the largest source of federal criminal justice funds for state, local and tribal authorities.

Although Lake Worth has always denied it's a Sanctuary City and has for years and even fought to get it off the list, this latest proclamation will finally settle their confusion.  Do they really want to be placed on the DOJ's list of Sanctuary Cities? So, why are Commissioner Hardy and the rest of this commission making a big Left-Wing deal out of this?

We used to worry about anarchists in our little city and their stand on Arizona 1070. Now we have to worry about globalists, liberals, socialists, open border people, etc. This is a shameful proclamation, representing the illegals over American citizens and the U.S. government.


WHEREAS, Fostering a welcoming environment for all individuals, regardless of race,
ethnicity or place of origin, enhances Lake Worth’s cultural fabric, economic growth, global competitiveness and overall prosperity for current and future generations; and

WHEREAS, Lake Worth has long been recognized as a hospitable and welcoming
place where people, families and institutions thrive and the contributions of all are celebrated and valued; and

WHEREAS, Lake Worth is committed to continue building a welcoming and neighborly atmosphere in our community, where all are welcome, accepted and integrated; and

WHEREAS, Community efforts that promote understanding and collaboration between our native-born and foreign-born community member regardless of legal status, are crucial in encouraging and preserving Lake Worth’s welcoming environment; and

WHEREAS, Lake Worth encourages the business leadership, civic groups, other governmental agencies and community institutions to undertake their own initiatives, beyond this resolution, to make Lake Worth not only a welcoming place for new residents from other countries but also a center of world commerce. ARE THEY NUTS? World commerce? Who in the hell writes this stuff?

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Pam Triolo, Mayor of the City of Lake Worth, Florida, by virtue of the authority vested in me, do hereby proclaim APRIL 17, 2018 AS WELCOMING CITY DAY In the City of Lake Worth, Florida and we urge all residents of Lake Worth to do their part in reaching out to and welcoming all who live in and visit our City. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the Cit >of Lake Worth, Florida to be affixed this 17th day of April, 2017.
Pam Triolo, Mayor
