‘Eargate’ feels like a U.S. operation to undo Obama’s Cuba opening

The made for Miami fairy tale of Marco the good vs. Cabello the bad

It’s hard to comprehend how people still believe Marco Rubio, or swallow the manufactured PR stunts that the press fall for that paint a picture of the U.S. senator from West Miami as the hero of some tall tale.

Give Trump credit for creating the worst, yet most successful, reality show of all time

The U.S. has become the equivalent of one of those Spanish language telenovelas, with a mix of Kerry Washington’s Amanda Pope in the TV series “Scandal,” and just a touch of the 1980s television prime time love-hate family feud fueled by wealth, “Dynasty.”

The rape of Miami by Loria and Samson

Rape is a heinous crime. It should never be tolerated. And yet, a group of Miami community “leaders” are allowing the owners of the Miami Marlins to get away with it. There are also their enablers that include certain mayors and commissioners from Miami and Miami-Dade.

David Rivera’s in trouble again; Feds to the rescue

The FEC is seeking $486,000 in civil penalties against David Rivera. The FEC’s civil case is the latest indication that Miami federal prosecutors don’t intend to criminally charge Rivera — even though U.S. District Judge Robert Scola took the extraordinary step of forcing the Feds to name Rivera as the target of their investigation back in 2014.

Trumpster brainiacs deride Declaration of Independence as ‘biased’
