WINTER HAVEN (FOX 13) – Polk County’s sheriff is sending out a call to arms. He says people should be armed and prepared just in case they are faced with an active shooter.
“The armed assailant doesn’t plan on you fighting back,” said Sheriff Grady Judd. “He plans on having a gun, doing all the shooting, and you’re just a sitting duck. Well, the ducks need to shoot back.” Continue reading

BRUSSELS (AP) — European Union leaders are gathering Thursday to weigh measures to tackle terrorism, closer defense ties and migration, convinced that anti-EU sentiment and support for populist parties are waning.
Ahead of the two-day meeting in Brussels, summit chairman Donald Tusk trumpeted the resurgence of the EU, even as Britain launched talks this week on leaving. Tusk told the leaders in an invitation letter that after a series of election defeats for anti-migrant parties, notably in France, the EU is “slowly turning the corner.” Continue reading
PARIS (AP) — French President Emmanuel Macron’s new government is presenting a security bill Thursday to beef up police powers amid sustained extremist threats to Europe. Macron insists the bill being discussed at a Cabinet meeting won’t infringe on freedoms, but rights groups fear France is heading for a permanent state of emergency.
Macron’s government is seeking to extend France’s existing state of emergency through Nov. 1, the time it will take the new security bill to pass through parliament. The current expiration date for the state of emergency is July 15. It would be the sixth extension of the measure since deadly attacks by extremists in Paris November 2015. Continue reading

Smith, a former decorated U.S. Navy SEAL and CIA special agent, is facing charges of conspiring to distribute “at least 700 kilograms (1,540 pounds) or more of marijuana since 2014,” according to a criminal complaint.

Former police officer Dominique Heaggan-Brown of the Milwaukee is free and has been acquitted of all charges in the shooting death of Sylville Smith last August. The family of the slain man could be heard crying in emotional pain after the verdict was read.
The fateful day that Smith lost his life, he appeared to be attempting to surrender when Heaggan-Brown fired the two gunshots that would ultimately take a life. The pain can be heard in the moans of Smith’s family. Unfortunately, most Americans know by know that cops will not be facing justice for the lives they take. The defense rested Monday after calling its lone witness, Robert Willis, an expert in police use of force, according to WISN.
SHTF Plan – by Mac Slavo
In recent years, Seattle has developed a reputation for passing asinine laws. Recently the city tried to increase taxes on diet soda, because the drink is more popular among white people. In the past they’ve allowed 6th graders to receive IUDs without parental consent, and have enlisted garbage men to snoop through residential trash in search of compost that is illegal to throw out. Seattle was also the first American city to pass a $15 minimum wage law, which promptly hurt low wage workers. Continue reading

EFF – by David Greene
The Supreme Court’s unanimous decision in Matal v. Tam striking down the trademark non-disparagement requirement as unconstitutional is a big victory for the First Amendment. First, the Court strongly pushed back against the expansion of the government-speech doctrine, perhaps the biggest current threat to free speech jurisprudence. Second, the Court strengthened a position EFF has long advocated—that intellectual property rights and First Amendment rights must be balanced against each other rather than weighted in favor of the former.
