Adam Putnam’s office stopped concealed weapons background checks for a year because it couldn’t log in

A state investigation found that the lapse covered a period that included the biggest spike in permit applications in Florida history.







For more than a year, the state of Florida failed to conduct national background checks on tens of thousands of applications for concealed weapons permits, potentially allowing drug addicts or people with a mental illness to carry firearms in public.

A previously unreported Office of Inspector General investigationfound that in February 2016 the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services stopped using a FBI crime database called the National Instant Criminal Background Check System that ensures applicants who want to carry a gun do not have a disqualifying history in other states.

The employee in charge of the background checks could not log into the system, the investigator learned. The problem went unresolved until discovered by another worker in March 2017 — meaning that for more than a year applications got approved without the required background check.

During that time, which coincided with the June 12, 2016 shooting at Pulse nightclub that left 50 dead, the state saw an unprecedented spike in applications for concealed weapons permits. There were 134,000 requests for permits in the fiscal year ending in June 2015. The next 12 months broke a record, 245,000 applications, which was topped again in 2017 when the department received 275,000 applications.

Department employees interviewed for the report called the NICS checks "extremely important." Concealed weapons licenses "may have been issued to potentially ineligible individuals." If it came out they weren't conducted, "this could cause an embarrassment to the agency," the report said.

Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam has made it a priority to speed up the issuing of concealed weapons permits since he was elected in 2010. In 2012, he held a news conference to celebrate the state's one millionth concealed weapons permit, noting the time it took to process an application fell from 12 weeks to 35 days on his watch. There are now 1.8 million concealed weapon permit holders in Florida.

Now running for Florida governor as a Republican, Putnam's campaign touts his expansion of concealed carry permits as one of his top accomplishments.

Meth test request ends in arrest





The 49-year-old Hawthorne man contacted the sheriff’s office Tuesday, believing the drugs he bought were flakka instead of the meth he intended to buy. His reaction last week was different from when he smoked meth before, he told detectives.

A Hawthorne man took methamphetamine to the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday thinking he was sold the wrong narcotic.

He wasn’t.

Douglas Peter Kelly, 49, bought drugs last week from his ex-girlfriend and had a “violent reaction” with a racing heart after smoking them, according to the sheriff’s office offense report.

He contacted the sheriff’s office Tuesday, believing the drugs he bought were flakka instead of the meth he intended to buy. His reaction last week was different from when he smoked meth before, he told detectives.

Flakka is a synthetic street drug with an intense high similar to cocaine’s.

Kelly spoke with the sheriff’s narcotics unit and drove to the agency’s criminal investigations unit voluntarily to have the drugs tested.

The clear, crystal-like substance he brought wrapped in aluminum foil tested positive for methamphetamine.

Kelly was charged with possession of methamphetamine without a prescription.

Christian author: Trump is under attack from ‘multidimensional Luciferian advanced beings’


Last week, End Times author Paul McGuire appeared on the Jim Bakker Show and declared that President Trump is currently engulfed in “the greatest spiritual battle in the history of all mankind.” He expanded on his claim on his radio program this Thursday, this time clarifying that the battle is with “advanced beings” who possess “supernatural multidimensional” powers.

And it gets even weirder.

“The physical battles that we see in our world and nation right now are a direct manifestation of the spiritual battles going on in the invisible realm,” McGuire said in an audio clip flagged by Right Wing Watch.

“There are people very high up in what is called the globalist occult or globalist Luciferian rulership system, and this rulership system consists of what used to be called the Pharaoh-God Kings, it’s what Aldous Huxley called ‘The Scientific Dictatorship,’ and these are advanced beings who know how to tap into supernatural multidimensional power and integrate it with science, technology, and economics,” he continued.

McGuire even had the hierarchical structure of these advanced beings pegged, saying they are at the “highest level of the pyramidic organizational structure in which the highest ranking officers, if you will, of the New World Order and Mystery Babylon are ruling the earth through an organizational structure that looks like the pyramid on the back of the U.S. dollar.”

“And they control the world because they understand that the true control of the world is done through supernatural mechanisms.”

B.C. couple loses child custody after stuffed lion purportedly transmitting the word of God acted as their lawyer






An unusual child custody trial featured the couple speaking in tongues to a stuffed animal they said transmitted the word of God directly to them and refusing legal assistance because Jesus Christ — through the stuffed lion — was their lawyer, witness and judge.

In November, when the girl was one, the Provincial Court of British Columbia formally declared she was in need of protection and placed her in provincial custody, a decision the parents appealed to the B.C. Supreme Court. The parents claimed the judge violated their Charter rights, discriminated against them as Christians and made procedural errors.

Both parents were raised in Christian homes, she in Ontario and he in B.C., but strayed from their roots until reconnecting with their beliefs as adults. They met in 2014 and shared a mutual interest in their own emerging view of the Christian faith and were privately married a year later, court heard.

They are not named to protect the identity of the child.

They had unstable working and living arrangements, moving around various communities in B.C., court heard. Their views started interfering with their relationships with others, including Christian communities. Several churches banned them and even called police for assistance when the couple set out to “purge churches of evil influences,” according to court records.

At one point, after the birth of their child, they were criminally charged with causing a disturbance after police were called to a church in West Kelowna where the parents were trying to cleanse demonic influences, court heard.

“It appears that, due to their strong religious beliefs, they are intolerant of those who do not espouse identical views. This includes other Christians,” Justice Diane MacDonald wrote in her ruling, released this week.

After the woman found she was pregnant, she told a social worker her husband sometimes choked her to make her stop crying, had once tied her hands and covered her mouth with tape, which scared her, and occasionally beat her, court heard.

She told the worker her husband grew up in a cult and believes sexual relations between children should be encouraged and that they “role-play” sins where she plays the victim and he plays the perpetrator, court heard.

When interviewed by police about the allegations, she denied them. Her husband said that once, when he was frustrated with her and had had a few drinks, he put one hand over her throat and the other over her mouth.

This led to a complaint to the Ministry of Children and Family Development.

It appears that, due to their strong religious beliefs, they are intolerant of those who do not espouse identical views. This includes other Christians
After the birth of their daughter, the parents refused all medical tests and procedures for her, including a hearing test, blood test, eye drops and a vitamin K shot. The mother also said she was unwilling to have her vaccinated.

Because of concerns over family violence and mental health, the ministry monitored the family. The couple refused to have parental capacity assessments, despite a court order.

A month after the girl’s birth, she was removed from the home and the parents continued to have supervised access.

The mother applied to change her daughter’s name to Jesus JoyoftheLord and her own first name to Risen Lord Jesus, her middle name to Refinersfire and her last name to Christ (with a hyphenation including her real name.)

When their child custody case came to court, the couple refused legal aid.

They said they had legal help, however, which came in the formed of a stuffed lion. During trial, the couple spoke to the lion in non-discernible words, presented as “speaking in tongues,” and said that through the lion they heard directly from God.

They said Jesus Christ was their “lawyer, witness and judge.”

When they cross-examined witnesses, they told each witness that their lawyer Jesus was asking the questions through them.

In the end, the judge did not find them to be credible and ruled in favour of the ministry and placed the baby in continuing care. The parents appealed that decision, claiming it infringed on their religious freedoms “as Christian parents.”

MacDonald disagreed.

“The parents obviously love their child and wish to raise her in their home with their Christian values,” she wrote. “It is clear that there was sufficient evidence before the trial judge to allow him to come to the conclusion that a continuing custody order was warranted in the circumstances,” MacDonald wrote.

She said the decision was not based on religious beliefs but on evidence of domestic violence; ignoring health care recommendations; concerns for the mother’s mental health; and their inability to work with those who could support them in parenting, including their own family, a maternity clinic, public health nurse, doctors, social workers, churches, Christian families and legal representatives.

A continuing care order can lead to placing a child for adoption.

Texas man loses his sh*t after finding ‘fossils from Noah’s Flood’ in his front yard





Wayne Propst of Tyler, Texas, claims to have found the fossil of an animal that was onboard Noah’s Ark.

“From Noah’s flood to my front yard. How much better can it get?” said Propst in an interview with CBS 19.

Propst was helping his aunt lay some dirt outside her front lawn when he found a “petrified snail.” Propst added. “What’s really interesting to me is we’re talking about the largest catastrophe known to man — the flood that engulfed the entire world.”

After finding the fossil, Propst had it sent to self-proclaimed fossil expert Joe Taylor. Taylor is the director and curator of the evolution-denying Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum. The museum is infamous for thinking that everything in the fossil record is only a couple thousand years old. Taylor “confirmed” the fossil is from the time of the great flood.

“I’ve never heard of anything about that from over there, I’m surprised he found it there,” Taylor said.

After, their hopes were confirmed by Taylor, Propst and his family set to work on the front yard looking for more fossils and sending pictures to Taylor. Seeing as Propst is not a paleontologist, there’s a lot that can go wrong here.

“To think that like he says that we have something in our yard that dated back to when God destroyed the earth. I mean, how much better could anything be?” Propst said.

GOP congressman honors D-Day anniversary by tweeting photo of Nazi soldiers

In a Twitter post commemorating the 74th anniversary of the D-Day invasion, Rep. Drew Ferguson (R-GA) tweeted, then deleted a photo of German troops.

This Wednesday, the campaign Twitter account for Ferguson’s reelection campaign shared a black-and-white photo featuring WWII-era soldiers wearing the patented helmets of Hitler’s Waffen-SS infantry.

In the background of the photo, a tank with the German iron cross could also be seen. Ferguso deleted the tweet and replaced it with a photo featuring U.S. soldiers from WWII, but not before Twitter users took screen shots.
