- “They came in slicing each other’s throats, putting each other on their knees, dropping them onto the floor in front of a bunch of children”
Off their meds again! Left-wing animal rights protesters from Direct Action Everywhere invade Chick-fil-A during “Cow Appreciation Day.” The unhinged loonies terrorize screaming kids and customers with their real-looking knives and splattered fake blood.
The cowards left before police arrived.
WFLA-TV reported customers and children were alarmed by the protest.
Real-looking knives, splattered fake blood and screaming kids. It’s not the kind of scene Chick-fil-A envisioned when they kicked off “Cow Appreciation Day.”
But, that’s what happened when protesters stormed the Pinellas Park restaurant during the lunch rush. The restaurant offered free food to people dressed like a cow.
An animal rights organization picked the spot to make its point. In front of dozens of startled customers, including many kids, they staged a loud protest.
Videos from cell phones show, at first, customers laughing as protesters entered the Chick-fil-A on 34th Street.
Smiles turned to anger as they realized fake blood covered people in cow and chicken costumes and one person carried a huge knife.
“People running in with knives, bleeding. Like bleeding on their shirts and just bloody knives. It scared the kids,” said Nichole Kretchmar.
Some parents shielded kids from the gory protest, but plenty watched.
“That’s sad, because a lot of the kids are an age where they can’t tell the difference between what’s real and fake. So, I believe everybody has a right to say what they believe in and what they feel is right. But, I also believe they took it too far,” said Tina Leacock.
The protesters are from Direct Action Everywhere Pinellas.
It opposes eating meat or anything else from animals.
…“They came in slicing each other’s throats, putting each other on their knees, dropping them onto the floor in front of a bunch of children,” said Crystal Valle-Najar.”

Here are the unwelcome guests, thankfully I had all the children locked in the play area so they couldn’t see our hear what was going on! I’m all for everyone having their own opinion, but when you come into a place full of children, with a knife in hand and proceed to cut the throats of a person dressed up as a chicken and a cow, all to get a point across, that’s going to far! Mind you the knife was fake and the throats of the persons dressed up were protesters. But there were young children there who saw everything happen and couldn’t tell the difference between it being real or fake. If you have a strong opinion on something by all means you have the right to speak on it in a reasonable manner, but sham on you for your actions today!”
- Florida Dem Party chair Stephen Bittel “They’re like children, these black lawmakers.”
( Free Beacon ) Florida Democratic Party chairman Stephen Bittel is considering resigning following backlash from racially charged comments he made toward members of the legislative black caucus.
The tension started at a Saturday fundraiser for the Florida Democratic Party, the Miami Herald reports. Bittel shortened the program by removing a segment in which state legislators would be recognized.
Bittel referred to the anger from lawmakers over the snub as “childish.” Bittel also said State Sen. Oscar Braynon (D.), a black legislator who expressed lawmakers’ unhappiness to the chairman, was acting “like a three year old.”
After the dinner, white State Sen. Lauren Book (D.) asked Bittel about the situation.
“They’re like children, these black lawmakers. They just don’t get it,” Bittel said. “I raised more money in this amount of time than they ever could.”
Bittel made matters worse for himself by initially accusing the African-American lawmakers of “playing the race card” once they took offense, Politico reports.
A massive brawl broke out at a mall in Orange Park, Florida, leading to the arrest of five individuals.
A video of the fight between up to 60 teenage girls was shared to Facebook on Saturday, according to CBS.
The video was viewed more than 500,000 times before it was removed from the platform.
Young women can be seen kicking and punching each other in the footage of the altercation, with many of them appearing to wear matching shirts with an airbrushed design.
Most of the people involved appeared to be teenagers, but at least one adult may have been involved, according to an account a parent of one of the arrested teens gave CBS.
Her 15-year-old daughter was arrested for battery on a law enforcement officer, but the mother said her daughter was actually a victim.
Yes, Trump Goes To Church. He Goes To My Church. Here’s What Happens When The President Sits Next To You
There are many conflicting media reports about President Trump and his relationship with the Christian faith, the church, and religion as a whole. As a resident of the President’s beloved Palm Beach community, a place where we have grown accustomed to seeing the ‘real’ Donald, I can tell you the President does attend church.
In fact, he attends my church.
I sat across from the President on Easter Sunday. I’ve worshiped with Trump and his family multiple times in our little stone sanctuary over the last 15 years I’ve been a parishioner. Here are some things I would like to set straight about attending church with President Trump.
Firstly, let’s establish where this church is. My little local church is called the Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea. It was built in 1889 and services the Palm Beach community. This is where it sits on a map:
Palm Beach Island was built as a private hideaway for America’s wealthy since it was established as a resort town in the late 1800s. The tiny island quickly became a homestead for New York’s elite. The homes and buildings here were built mostly during the “Gatsby” Gilded Age. Astors, Vanderbilts, and Kennedys called Palm Beach home long before Donald Trump.
Donald has always been a bit more “colorful” than other Palm Beach residents. He does ruffle some feathers on the quiet island occasionally. But what irritates some of his fellow homeowners on the island is what endears him to his voting block: his love of interacting with people and being a grand host.
In Palm Beach, Donald is very accessible. He still greets members at Mar-A-Lago by name. He will exit his motorcade to shake hands with supporters lining the street to wave signs for him. He invites them into his home. None of this is surprising to people who have been neighbors with him on the island for the last 25 years.
So it was no surprise to members of our community church when President Trump casually walked into Easter service. I have attended church with Trump five times, including last Easter when he was a GOP presidential candidate. Donald was married at my church. His son Barron was christened at my church. Melania posts photos of my church, saying it is where she and Donald “celebrate and pray.”
However, when Donald came to worship this Easter Sunday, things were different.
This was the first time Donald Trump attended as President.
Here are some ways your church service changes when the most powerful man in the world attends.
1. You may need to arrive “early” to get a good seat in church when the President is coming to service.
Between the 9am and 11am service, the church was entirely closed off and the Secret Service swept the building with bomb sniffing dogs. The entrance to the building was blocked off during this time, and not open to the public.
2. The lines to get into the church are very long.
As people lined up for the 11am service, parishioners had to go through metal detectors and be searched by Secret Service and bomb sniffing dogs. It’s very much like getting on a plane.
3. A special entrance is set up for the President outside the church grounds.
When the President and his family arrive, everything gets really busy outside. Security swarm. Police block the roads. He may wave, but he is in a ‘bubble’ until he gets in the building.
4. As the President arrives, those of us in the church are on lockdown. No one in or out.
Some people specifically knew Trump would attend, and some didn’t realize what the procedures were for. A lady sitting right next to us in our pew says, “Oh my gosh, I’m so excited Trump will be here today!” We told her to be quiet and discreet, because we didn’t want the Pastor or parishioners to be upset.
5. When the President walks it, everyone is awestruck.
It’s neat to see the President, no matter who you are. When Donald walked in, some of the parishioners were very excited. The family came in from the side door, with Barron, Tiffany and Melania and her parents. They were shown to their pew in the fifth row by one of the clergy. The energy was palpable.
Donald was friendly as usual. He tried to keep the fuss down around him so the Pastor wouldn’t be too perturbed. The Pastor noted that the day is intended to celebrate Christ, who has risen from the grave —- not Donald who has seated himself in the fifth pew.
6. The President worships with Secret Service.
Donald couldn’t really walk around and pose with any of us, but he was kind and friendly, and looked directly into our cameras and smiled for us.
Two Secret Service sat behind him, two in front of him, and maybe even more that we didn’t know about. The entire church was watched over by Secret Service. One agent stood at the front of church on her walkie-talkie communicating with the agent next to him. The entire church and grounds were covered with bomb-sniffing dogs and agents during the entire service, we later found out.
7. Trump will still shake your hand.
Many parishioners did shake Donald’s hand quietly on the way up to take Communion. Some walked right by him. But he was friendly and shook everyone’s hand who reached for his.
8. The President sings in church.
Donald Trump sang hymns in church. I saw it.
9. The First Lady and her son were proud parishioners.
Melania was cheerful and beaming. She prayed fervently with the Pastor during hymns. Melania’s parents were there with the family. Barron was a good boy for being an 11-year-old in a church service. He was dutiful and attentive.
10. The President leaves quietly, just before the end of the service.
Donald and his family left when the final hymn played. He waved at everyone, and everyone waved back, then his Secret Service and family all left out of a side door.
Some people were outside, so hyped up, they were literally crying to see the President as we walked out at the end of service. So the word was out that he was there by the end of service.
I’m proud to be a member of the same church as Donald Trump. During this service, you can imagine a lot is on his mind, now that he is no longer just the owner of a club on the island, but rather the Commander in Chief for the most powerful country in the world.
I think I saw him praying, just a bit more this year.

- Check their blog http://10spurgeons.blogspot.com/
( Daily Mail ) A Florida couple have been charged with more than 300 counts each of child sex abuse involving 11 biological, adopted and foster children, some younger than age 12.
Daniel Spurgeon, 47, and his 52-year-old wife, Jenise Spurgeon, were arrested in Cape Coral, Florida, on outstanding warrants stemming from an ongoing investigation into allegations of sexual abuse in Florence, Alabama, where the couple had lived years earlier.
Mr Spurgeon is facing more than 100 counts each of first-degree sexual abuse, child abuse and enticing a child for immoral purposes. Others charges against him include sodomy; sexual torture; rape; domestic violence by strangulation; incest and human trafficking.
The charges against Mrs Spurgeon include 100 counts each of child abuse, endangering the welfare of a child and enticing a child for immoral purposes, as well as a single count of domestic violence by strangulation and 11 counts of human trafficking.
Florence police Sgt. Brad Holmes said the victims’ ages range from toddlers to teenagers, reported Al.com.
ABC 7 reports that the allegations came out when police responded to a KFC in Cape Coral, where they found three children aged 16, 13 and 13 intoxicated.
One of the teenagers told officers that Daniel Spurgeon had provided them with hard liquor mixed with Mountain Dew and beer, the news station reports. The teens were taken to a local hospital, where they told officers and emergency personnel that Spurgeon had been physically and sexually abusing many of the adopted and foster children – eight girls and two boys, ages 8 through 16 – living in the Spurgeon home.
Spurgeon and his wife also have three biological children, two boys and a girl, the news station reports. -Read more: Former Alabama couple charged with physical, sexual abuse of 10 foster, adopted kids

- Mayor Eula Clarke walked into a convenience store—Taylor’s Grocery–in Stuart January 11 where Stuart Police officer Edward Fitzgerald was inside talking to one of the store employees. Then the mayor made the comment, according to the police union, “I didn’t know we were serving pig tonight.”
STUART (CBS12) — A union representing several thousand law enforcement officers in south Florida is furious with the mayor of Stuart over a comment she made.
The mayor told CBS12 she wants to move forward.
“I am sorry for those words,” said Eula Clarke, Stuart mayor.
“We’re outraged! How does a community leader, a public servant do that to one of our officers?” said John Kazanjian, president of the Palm Beach County Police Benevolent Association, Inc.
Clarke is feeling the heat over a comment she made earlier this month.
“It’s just a slap in the face,” Kazanjian said.
Mayor Eula Clarke walked into a convenience store—Taylor’s Grocery–in Stuart January 11 where Stuart Police officer Edward Fitzgerald was inside talking to one of the store employees.
Then the mayor made the comment, according to the police union, “I didn’t know we were serving pig tonight.”
“Were you trying to make a joke or why would you say such a thing?” we asked the mayor.
“Al, I don’t want to go into it. Those words were unfortunate,” said Mayor Clarke.
