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. Over the years Miami has been ransacked by scoundrels who use stories — like the one being woven by Little Marco — in order to divert our attention from the real culprits who pilfer from our city.

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.”

Donald Trump the ‘drama queen’ as per Peggy Noonan

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.

Trump’s Miami visit: More questions than answers
