Dark Princes, Puppetmasters and other Fairy Tales from the Crypt

Once upon a timeAs I’ve said before, desperate people do desperate things.  North Bay Village Mayor Connie Leon-Kreps must be getting really desperate.

The election is just around the corner and there is the distinct possibility she will lose her coveted seat at the head of the dais to a political virgin.  That desperate fear could be the only possible reason that she keeps scraping the bottom of the barrel.

First she commissioned Randall “Prince of Darkness” Hilliard and his pet Demon, Mitchell Edelstein, Continue reading

Welcome to Planet North Miami

planet bNorth Miami Councilwoman Marie Steril just can’t stay out of the spotlight.

The Miami-Dade County Commission on Ethics and Public Trust found probable cause that she “used her position to get upgrades to her mother’s city-subsidized home renovation,” according to a Miami Herald article published October 8, 2014.  Reporter Lance Dixon explained that “Marie Steril will have to pay more than $5,000.00 over the next five years” for the violation.

But, the joke is on the taxpayers of North Miami, Continue reading

Frantzie Watch: Keepin’ it real!

List of thingsJust as I suspected, MIRAMAR resident/homeowner Pradel Vilme has publicly announced that he’s running for office in North Miami Beach on Tuesday, May 5, 2015.

Even though he is a bona fide resident of MIRAMAR, with a 100% homestead exemption on a property he owns at 16843 SW 50 Street, MIRAMAR, Florida 33027, he is still planning on throwing his hat in the ring to run Continue reading

Randy Hilliard, Prince of Darkness? ROFLMAO!

Hilliard et al

The much anticipated “hit piece” against North Bay Village mayoral candidate Jorge Brito hit mailboxes all over the tiny three-island municipality yesterday.

Somewhere in South Florida, Keith Donner is laughing his ass off.

Connie Leon-Kreps’ campaign “strategists” Randall Hilliard and Mitch Edelstein produced a political “attack” mailer that can only be described as One Hot Mess.

The “brains” behind this mailer, which was paid for by Continue reading

Little J̶o̶h̶n̶n̶y̶ Mitch wants a strip club

Little JohnnyProstitution is commonly referred to as the World’s Oldest Profession.  Politics is mostly likely the second oldest.  Based on the sleaze factor alone, it’s a toss up between lawyers and lobbyists as to which profession comes in third.  Most likely it’s a tie.

As far as sleazy lobbyists go, the first one who comes to mind is Mitch Edelstein, President of Strategic Campaign Consultants, Inc.  Mitch was the “genius” behind North Miami Beach EX-Mayor/FELONY defendant Myron Rosner’s failed 2011 re-election campaign.  According to his Campaign Treasurers Report, Myron shelled out $4,000.00 to Mitch for “consulting.”

That same year, Continue reading

Facts are funny things

I need to stop sayingI didn’t think it was possible, but I discovered a “journalist” who is a bigger idiot than the Miami Herald’s Fabiola Santiago.

The opening sentence of artnet.com reporter Sarah Cascone’s article, ICA Miami Will Open with Pedro Reyes and Andra Ursuta, is seriously WTF? cringe-worthy.  Cascone writes, “The Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami (ICA Miami), heir to the late Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami…”

Wait, what?

“Heir to the LATE Museum of Contemporary Art?” Continue reading

Enough with the Identity Politics already! (It really is getting old.)

District 108 mapDespite the Second Ever Official “VotersOpinon Recommends” in the History of the World, Florida State Representative Daphne Campbell handily beat out the opposition in the August Democratic primary.  On November 4, 2014, she will face a new challenger by the name of Cedon Saintil, Jr., a self-described “local businessman and pastor,” who is registered as NPA (No Party Affiliation).

Ordinarily I’d support anyone running against an incompetent politician.  This is not to say that Mr. Saintil wouldn’t be a good choice for House District 108.  I’m sure he could do a better job Continue reading
