Renegade Republicans, including two from Miami, sought to weaken ethics police in Congress

The Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE) became better known to the American public this week when a group of House Republicans, which included two members from the Miami area, behind closed doors and unbeknownst to most, attempted to gut the OCE on Monday night before the start of the new congress.


Follow the money… and Marco Rubio

Follow the money… and Marco Rubio

The former Darth Vader of U.S. politics still feels he has the right to dictate orders to the president. Although this time he’s taking a back door in a dark alley called Marco Rubio.


Trump’s possible Cuba policy doesn’t look good

Trump’s possible Cuba policy doesn’t look good

Donald Trump wants to hire a known racist to head the attorney general’s office; a climate change denier to head the Environmental Protection Agency; and a surgeon to head housing; and we expect him to do any better when it comes to Cuba?


Trump moves: There goes $15 an hour, and other sad choices

Trump moves: There goes $15 an hour, and other sad choices

Claver-Carone: A hollow move simply to appease?

Claver-Carone: A hollow move simply to appease?

Earlier this week Mauricio Claver-Carone was tabbed by the Donald Trump team to sit at the table of the president-elect’s group of deciders.

Pussy

Pussy

It’s a word used to describe a cat and even a coward. Donald Trump — and he’s not alone in this — uses it to describe a woman’s genitalia. And the word, as used by Trump in a recently released video, may finally be his undoing in the 2016 presidential election.

Miami’s José Fernández dies in boating accident

Jose Fernandez, the Miami Marlins star pitcher, died in a boating accident that occurred very early Sunday morning. Fernandez made you like watching him play baseball. In a sport that has become boring to many, he was the exception. He was fun to watch. May he rest in peace.
