The only thing more predictable than the Florida Democrats expressing opposition to the Trump administration's ICE agents enforcing sweeps, is those same Dems misrepresenting the facts of what's taking place. Add to that a remarkable touch of delusion surrounding the prior administration and you begin to wonder if the Florida Democratic Party even has access to news outlets.
Problems in casting votes for candidates is as much a part of the Florida landscape as palm trees. Voting issues, ballot complaints, and electoral lawsuits are so much the norm that when an election actually goes off without a hitch, it gets a banner headline. In keeping with that tradition, the Democratic Party has just begun a new lawsuit to seek a change in the voting process.
Billionaire Jeffery Epstein is the absolute height of a polarizing figure. He is accused of some of the most heinous illegalities, but he has managed to skirt severe punishment while enjoying cover from prominent figures.
Epstein's indictment on charges he operated a sex trafficking ring in which he sexually abused dozens of underage girls has reignited hope for many on the political left that President Trump may be implicated, and several South Florida figures are involved.
It's one thing to suggest Democratic leaders like to position themselves either as royalty or exalted leaders above reproach -- but it's even better when they prove that theory to be correct. Enter U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson.
It is something of a staple with Hollywood horror movies: Each sequel has to involve the elimination of the grotesque monster in growingly dramatic terms, only to find a way for him to resurface improbably to justify the remake. In similar fashion, we here in South Florida have witnessed the perpetual reemergence of deposed Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel.
New York City Mayor and presidential hopeful Bill DeBlasio took time from his departure schedule from South Florida following his debate performance Wednesday night to visit with airport workers.
Speaking before a large group of striking laborers, in many ways he became perfectly emblematic of his fellow Democratic debaters. Serving as their avatar was not intentional, nor was it meant to be complimentary.
Excitement reigns in Democratic ranks as a whole rodeo of presidential candidates is prepping at this moment to step onto the debate stage Wednesday or Thursday evening at Miami Beach's Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.
The Democratic Party, with a field of nearly two dozen announced candidates, is getting set to open its debate schedule for the 2020 presidential campaign. The first debate is set for Miami and in anticipation, Team Blue is placing a great deal of energy behind a very serious outreach effort -- appealing to the Hispanic/Latino voters.
In the growing tempest of our social battlefield -- and the growing intolerance of special interests who preach tolerance -- Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Kyle Kashuv has been caught in the cultural crossfire.
Weeks following the announcement that he had been accepted to Harvard, a controversy erupted. Kyle found himself on the receiving end of that now-common practice among social activists (on both ends of the political spectrum), the social media proctology exam.
The new abortion legislation taking hold in select states in recent months has caused an undertow among the backers of last November’s Blue Wave election, most demonstrably the gang of loudmouth Hollywood libs.
And, in an unforeseeable result, the swell of Democratic Party gains in D.C. has led to staunchly conservative legislation regarding abortions to be passed. Not only legislation but some loud and curious reactions in some sectors of the country.
