Hard-Left Democrats' Power Grab Gives Us a Telling Look at Debbie Mucarsel-Powell

March 9, 2019 - 7:45am

In case you didn't notice, U.S. House Democrats, including Florida's Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, voted Friday for their first major legislation of the new Congress. 

The Democrats call it "For the People Act of 2019;" the Republicans call it "Democrat Politician Protection Act." Mucarsel-Powell, who unseated Republican Carlos Curbelo in the last election, was a bill co-sponsor.

So, what was the Democrats' top priority? Job creation? Veterans? The economy? Nope. The first major program passed by House Democrats primarily benefits ... House Democrats.

In September 2018, Everglades Foundation CEO Eric Eikenberg predicted his influence was about to increase mightily. 

"Forty days from now," he said, "we'll have a new Administration in Tallahassee, a new governing board at the Water Management District, new leadership at the Corps."

The South Florida Water Management District Governing Board looks to be back in business.

Politics, Push for Power the Biggest Threat to Everglades Restoration

February 15, 2019 - 6:00pm

The last four Scott-appointed Governing Board members had come to Thursday's South Florida Water Management District meeting with something to say. And boy, did they say it.

I came away a greater fan at noon than I was at 9 a.m. when the meeting started.

SFWMD Board: Out with the Old, but ... Where's the New?

February 14, 2019 - 9:00am

After the public shaming to shoo out the old South Florida Water Management District board members as fast as they could, you'd think the new Administration would have been Johnny-on-the-spot getting their replacements appointed and cleared in time for the first meeting.

Which is today.

On Anthony Sabatini, Democrats Are Laughable

A couple of high school buddies -- one white, one black -- dress up as each other in stereotypical attire for homecoming. They're immature, inappropriate showoffs looking for a laugh. 

I'm sorry, but that's what kids do. Dumb, inappropriate things. Sometimes things that don't make their mothers proud. Especially teenage boys who mature slower than girls.

Ever since the horrific congressional baseball shooting that almost took the life of Congressman Steve Scalise and former Hill staffer Matt Mika -- and came moments before Congressman Ron DeSantis arrived at the field -- members of Congress have been keenly aware that serving in public office has put a target on their backs.

So why on earth would Congressman Brian Mast turn into one of the rabble rousers inciting crazies to make targets of the public officials on the South Florida Water Management District Governing Board? 

Disgusted Elections Super Susan Bucher Resigns, Doesn't Trust the Senate to Give Her a Fair Hearing

January 29, 2019 - 12:30pm

Palm Beach County Elections Supervisor Susan Bucher resigned Monday, rather than appeal her suspension before a Republican Senate where, she claims, the odds would be stacked against her.

Having met with her attorney, Leonard Feuer, she said they concluded a hearing would be a waste of time, conducted by a handpicked Senate committee "with attorneys for DeSantis acting as prosecutors."
