Yet another North Miami WTF Moment

HuhIt seems that North Miami councilman Michael Blynn is less than thrilled with my recent blog about him.  He tried to post two very similar, and very confusing, comments on my website.  I didn’t approve either for comment because I wanted to give him the opportunity to withdraw them and spare him from humiliating himself.

I tried.  I really did.  But, he still didn’t get it.  Here’s the story.

In the first comment, Blynn wrote:

“Again, Ms. Kienzle,to set the record straight, you are entitled to your opinion, but not to your own facts.  I never made the quotation you attrributed to me in quotes ever. .  I I never wrote anything regarding the hotel, the dealership mall, nor did I contemplate low income rental units. Furthermore, I moved to spend only the 2.5 million, if that, and keep the rest in reserves, but my motion was voted down 4/1.  I have consistently demanded the hiring of grant writers to make the money grow for the benefit. I look forward to your corrections in your next blog.  Thank you.  Councilmember Michael R. Blynn”

Before I even had a chance to read the first one, Continue reading


Do You Voodoo?

Voodoo Words fail me.

Yes, I know.  Hard to believe.  But I think what you’re about to see, hear and read might even stun Phyllis into silence. For a few minutes anyway.

The North Miami race for City Council just keeps getting stranger and stranger.

For one thing, I just saw a campaign video on YouTube produced by Council Candidate for District 2 Mary Irvin that literally defies all explanation and description.  You must see it for yourself to understand what I’m talking about.

As I said, words fail me.  Somebody has just gotta tell me…WTF WAS THAT?

Real classy, huh?

In yet another stunning slap in the face of reality, Anna L. Pierre, who is running for mayor of North Miami, Continue reading


Mr. Blynn Goes to New Joisey

Mr. SmithThe never ending saga of Biscayne Landing in North Miami continues.

North Miami councilman/candidate Michael Blynn envisions turning the former Munisport Landfill, now known as Biscayne Landing, into a renters and retail paradise.  According to a report by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, this property was described as:

“The Munisport Landfill site occupies a 291-acre parcel of land within the city limits of North Miami, Miami-Dade County, Florida. The site is the location of a former municipal landfill that operated from 1974 to 1981. The landfill resulted from the filling of low-lying wetland areas with construction debris and solid waste in an effort to raise the elevation of the land for the construction of a cultural and trade center known as Interama. Because the solid waste was disposed of without the use of a liner or leachate control mechanisms, rainfall percolating through the solid waste has caused the release of contaminants into the underlying ground water and discharge into adjacent surface water. A Remedial Investigation completed by EPA in 1988 and a water quality and toxicity assessment completed in 1989 found that the landfill posed no threat to human health, but that it did pose a significant threat to aquatic organisms in the adjacent wetlands…The main contaminants found Continue reading


No, seriously, WTF is going on?

WTF kittyAn incident happened one night last week at the Publix in the Skylake Mall.  I was on my way to the checkout line when I heard a commotion at the front of the store.  A man a wheelchair (no, it wasn’t you-know-who) was being verbally abusive to the lady behind the customer service desk.  After a few minutes she called the police.  Undeterred, the man kept screaming at her, calling her all kinds of names while the store’s armed security guard stood next to him, waiting for the cops to come.  I assume the guard would have had to act if the man became physically violent, but luckily all he did was rant, rave and cause a scene.

It took at least ten long minutes for the cops to get there, probably closer to fifteen, although I couldn’t be sure.  The cops managed to get the man outside, where he started to abusively berate them, too.  Chances are this man was not in his right mind.  Fortunately, I was finished shopping and I left before I saw the outcome of the situation.

Due to our crazy boundary lines, parts of Skylake are in the city limits of North Miami Beach, Continue reading


No Mercy! (Translated)

By special request, I am translating my column, No Mercy, into French and Creole for my readers.  Enjoy!

No Mercy!

Scream for me fait MercyNothing plus en colère que la fraude, surtout quand il s’agit d’élections. Si vous commettez une fraude, que ce soit en tant que candidat, un élu public ou un électeur, je ne vais pas reposer jusqu’à ce que vous soient traduits en justice et de crier grâce.

Il s’agit d’informer Philippe Bien-Aimé, qui est candidat à North Miami City District Council 3, qu’il est le prochain sur ma liste.

Commencer à crier miséricorde, bébé. J’ai pas déconner!

Selon la déclaration du candidat Philippe Bien-Aimé déposé auprès de la ville de North Miami et de l’État de la Floride, il prétend qu’il vit à 531 Street NE 133, North Miami, Florida 33161.

Selon les comptes rendus publics de l’évaluateur Broward County propriété, il vit à 12460 SW 1, rue Plantation, Floride 33325.

North Miami’s loss is Opa-locka’s gain. Oh, darn!

Opa-locka police chief Jeffrey KeyGotta love Random Pixels!  Just posted is a column entitled Welcome to Opa-locka, where the line between criminals and cops is sometimes blurred.

Seems like Opa-locka’s newly hired police chief, Jeffrey Key, (formerly of the NMPD) is already making headlines.  And not in a good way.  No wonder North Miami couldn’t wait to get rid of him!

In a news video from WSVN Channel 7, Key was quoted as saying, “Anybody with a human heart, they’re heart would bleed out for the family members and also the victims.”

Gee, I don’t know about you guys, but last time I checked we all had human hearts.  What a spokesman, huh?

RP’s latest column begins, “Wednesday’s wrong way crash on I-95 that killed 4 innocent people was the culmination of a police chase that never should have happened, initiated by an Opa-Locka officer who never should have been hired.”

Meanwhile, the tragic and twisted story, which continues to unfold, Continue reading

North Miami Beach Police Looking for Campaign Sign Stealer
North Miami Beach Police say this man was caught on video stealing a political candidate’s sign in North Miami Beach.

North Miami Beach Police are asking for the public’s help in catching a man who was caught on video stealing a political sign.

The incident happened Monday morning around 6:30 a.m. at 699 Northeast 167th Street, North Miami Beach Police said.

A video of the theft released by police shows the suspect drive up near the sign, yank it out of the ground and leave the scene in a four-door sedan.

The sign belongs to Anthony DeFillipo, a candidate for North Miami Beach’s City Council in the city’s May 7 election Continue reading


Hey, KFR! This is how it’s done!

Just dessertsSeven more crooked politicians get their just desserts!

In Spring Valley, New York, an FBI sting nailed two corrupt public officials on federal charges.  Mayor Norami Jasmin was busted for bribery and Deputy Mayor Joseph Desmaret for mail fraud.  According to an article published today in, Spring Valley mayor won’t say if she’ll resign,  both were also charged with “selling their votes for [a] community center project.”

With typical political chutzpah, the mayor doesn’t know if she’ll step down.

The sting also brought down and charged a State Senator “and three other high-profile political figures with bribery and corruption.”

Music to my ears!

Closer to home, the FBI published a press release today on, Margate City Commissioner Indicted on Federal Bribery Charges.  The U.S. Attorney’s Office charged Commissioner David McClean with “three counts of bribery in connection with a program receiving Continue reading


No Mercy!

Scream for MercyNothing makes me angrier than fraud, especially when it comes to elections.  If you are committing fraud, either as a candidate, an elected public official or a voter, I will not rest until you are brought to justice and scream for mercy.

This is to notify Philippe Bien-Aime, who is running for North Miami City Council District 3, that he’s next on my list.

Start screaming for mercy, baby.  I ain’t messing around!

According to the Statement of Candidate Philippe Bien-Aime filed with the City of North Miami and the State of Florida, he claims he lives at 531 NE 133 Street, North Miami, Florida 33161.

According to the Public Records of the Broward County Property Appraiser, he lives at 12460 SW 1 Street, Plantation, Florida 33325.

Phillipe Ben-Aime Broward Property

According to the Public Records of the Miami-Dade County Property Appraiser, the property located at 531 NE 133 Street, North Miami, Florida is owned by one Suzanne Joseph, who receives a homestead exemption.
Phillipe Ben-Aime DadeProperty
Granted, neither Ben-Aime nor the co-owner of the Broward property, Sara Jane Ternier, declared a homestead exemption on that home (the Warranty Deed shows they are husband and wife), but a thorough investigation of Philippe Ben-Aime turned up some interesting results.

The phone number that he gave to the North Miami Clerk, 786-224-8636, is completely untraceable.

Phillipe Ben-Aime Phone Tracer Report

This is probably because it’s a “burner phone,” purchased solely for the purpose of having a Miami-Dade County telephone number.  Considering that he purchased a phone on January 12, 2013 with campaign funds, this is probably the number of that phone.

The phone number that I tracked down for him in Broward County, 954-306-2053, is a landline in his name and is also associated with his wife, Sara Jane Ternier, as well as one Marnatha Pierre.

Phillipe Ben-Aime Phone Search
Phillipe Ben-Aime Phone Search-Broward
I also heard, but have not yet confirmed, that Ben-Aime’s children attend public school in Broward County.


Obviously for the perks that North Miami elected officials are rumored to receive.  But, that’s a whole other scandal for another blog.

Listen up, DUDE.  It’s bad enough when private citizens commit voter fraud.  And, believe me, there are plenty of them to go after!  But, when a person runs for public office ostensibly to serve the residents of a city, and DOESN’T EVEN LIVE IN THAT CITY, that is completely and utterly despicable!

Unfortunately for Philippe Ben-Aime, I have the Florida Elections Commission on speed dial.  I also am no stranger to filing complaint after complaint until I get results.  I am committed to routing out voter fraud and election fraud, and I AM RELENTLESS.  (Just ask Myron if you don’t believe me.)

I strongly suggest that Philippe Ben-Aime bow out of the race before it gets ugly.

Just saying, of course.
