    When visiting Khurrum Wahid’s Facebook page, you see photos of what appears to be a clean-cut politician attending different events, posing with important politicos, standing with young people, and smiling broadly for the camera. Wahid is running for the position of City Commissioner of Coral Springs, Florida, and his Facebook page has been manufactured to show the perfect candidate for the public’s view. What is hidden behind this façade, though, is Wahid’s history – and present – of his involvement in radical Islam. It is this other side of Wahid that the voters need to recognize, so that they do...

    It’s the Washington conspiracy that barely speaks its name. And unlike the incandescent “Russian interference” scandal dominating the news for well over a year, this one has the potential to cause grave harm to our national security. **SNIP** How did Imran Awan come to be represented by a lawyer who is close to both Bill and Hillary Clinton? Mr. Awan, so far as one knows, does not know the Clintons personally. But his chief protector, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, certainly does. The Florida congresswoman was an outspoken ally of Hillary Clinton during her 2008 and 2016 presidential runs. And Awan’s attorney,...
  • Miami convention for Democrats could alienate Hispanic voters who loathe socialism

    Washington Examiner ^ | 3/01/19 | Joseph Simonson
    While Miami lobbies for the 2020 Democratic Convention, party officials are bracing for an awkward outcome: hosting a nominee such as socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., in a city filled with immigrants who fled socialism in their home countries. Democrats are debating between the Florida metropolis and the sleepier Milwaukee, Wis., with Houston, Texas, a distant third option. Miami Democrats are frantically trying to convince national leaders that holding the convention in the biggest city in a critical swing state would be an important step toward winning the Electoral College in 2020. **SNIP** But some Democrats in southern Florida are...

    New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez interceded on behalf of an Ecuadorian woman who was banned from traveling to the U.S. because of allegations she had engaged in visa fraud. The woman, Estafania Isaias, is the daughter of a fugitive from Ecuador convicted in absentia for bank fraud and whose relatives in Florida made significant campaign donations to the New Jersey Democrat's 2012 campaign and the Democratic Party. Current and former U.S. government officials tell NBC 4 New York that Estefania Isaias was barred from traveling to the U.S. in 2007 because she allegedly lied on visa applications to bring immigrant...
  • Wanted by Ecuador, 2 Brothers Make Mark in U.S. Campaigns (donated $90K to Obama)

    NY Times ^ | March 11, 2014 | FRANCES ROBLES
    MIAMI — The donations kept pouring in: hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions to President Obama and more than a dozen members of Congress, carefully routed through the families of two wealthy brothers in Florida. They had good reason to be generous. The two men, Roberto and William Isaias, are fugitives from Ecuador, which has angrily pressed Washington to turn them over, to no avail. A year after their relatives gave $90,000 to help re-elect Mr. Obama, the administration rejected Ecuador’s extradition request for the men, fueling accusations that such donations were helping to keep the brothers and...

    VIDEO The Democrats are now down to three cities as possible 2020 convention sites. Houston, Milwaukee, and Miami Beach. It sounds like Houston is now out of the running but, unfortunately, the conventional wisdom now leans towards Milwaukee. Big mistake as I point out in this video. If Miami arena is chosen as the convention site (with most of the delegates staying in nearby Miami Beach), your humble correspondent would have the ability to LIVESTREAM the lunacy surrounding the Democrat convention next year. Oh, and don't forget to SUBSCRIBE to the DUmmie FUnnies channel because I need 1000 subscribers to...

    He used a remote control to troll the toll, cops allege. A 70-year-old Key Largo man deployed a remote-controlled license plate cover in an attempt to evade the tolls on Florida’s Turnpike in Miami-Dade County, the Florida Highway Patrol said. Unluckily for him, however, he did so in full view of an off-duty FHP trooper. It was just before 3 p.m. on Saturday when Davis was driving south in his Chrysler Pacifica minivan on the Turnpike approaching the Bird Road toll plaza, the arrest report stated. That’s when Lt. Alejandro Camacho, who was off duty and driving his own car,...

    Miami-Dade’s mayor flies to Tallahassee this week to fight a state takeover of local toll roads, and he says an early victim of the proposed legislation would likely be a planned extension of the 836 expressway into West Kendall. “One of the major issues I have with that bill is the fact that it may stall that project for some time,” said Mayor Carlos Gimenez, who also serves as the appointed chairman of the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority. The toll board of state and county appointees, best known as the MDX, collects tolls on the 836 and four other expressways. “The...

    Miami Dolphins defensive end Robert Quinn lashed out at the media for not paying enough attention to his national anthem protests, which he said are supposed to shine a light on racial problems in America. “Y’all ignore it,” he said during a press conference Thursday, The Miami Herald reported. “Because when I gave my first message on trying to bring unity, y’all swept it under the rug.” Mr. Quinn has been raising a fist during the national anthem since he joined the Dolphins in the offseason. The Miami Herald suggested that kneeling during the anthem in protest is “radioactive to...

    .... immigration-asylum applications in Miami were denied at rates virtually unseen in two decades, according to data released today by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), a group at Syracuse University. Immigration officials denied 86 percent of asylum applications during the 2018 fiscal year.... That's the highest denial rate in Miami since at least 2001... ... the nation saw a massive spike in asylum and immigration-court decisions in 2018, which suggests the Trump administration is pushing courts to churn through immigration cases much faster. Most of the new decisions were denials. TRAC noted that, though denial rates initially spiked when...

    The narratives of the midterm elections were set when suburban voters turned against President Trump, women racked up record numbers of electoral wins and Republicans dominated rural states and counties. But dive deeper into the results and some more surprising storylines emerge, from familial ties to long shot candidates, expanding suburbs and new battlegrounds. Here are the overlooked stories that didn’t get enough coverage after the polls closed. Did Puerto Ricans elect Rick Scott? When Hurricane Maria left Puerto Rico devastated in 2017, almost 400,000 of the island’s residents moved to the mainland. Many of them landed in Florida, where...

    By noon on Monday, Miami-Dade managed to recount about half of the more than 800,000 votes cast in the 2018 election. Broward County had not yet started its state-mandated recount. The stark contrast in pace from Florida’s two largest sources of ballots highlights the pressure facing Broward as it tries to meet a Thursday afternoon deadline to recount the more than 700,000 votes cast in the largely Democratic county.

    Dozens of boxes filled with mail-in ballots are sitting inside a Miami-area mail distribution center, according to photos obtained by The Miami New Times. The news outlet noted that the distribution center where the ballots are located is the same one that was evacuated in October after a mail bomb reached the facility. The news about the ballots comes the same day Miami-Dade County announced it finished counting votes for the midterm elections, which includes hotly-contested Senate and gubernatorial races that have yet to be called. Two unnamed sources alleged to The New Times that hundreds or thousands of ballots...

    The crude bombs sent to several liberal politicians and news networks this week were sent through a major Unites Sates Postal Service mailing facility in South Florida, it's been revealed. All 10 bombs sent to the Clintons, former President Obama, CNN and other prominent Democrats are all believed to have come through the Opa-locka processing and distribution center, CNN reports. FBI and canine units were deployed to the facility Thursday as the search continues for the person or persons behind the bombs. The U.S. Post Office Royal Palm Processing & Distribution Center in Opa-locka is the main mailing facility in...

    There’s a simple rule in running for Congress in Miami: Don’t campaign with someone who praised Fidel Castro and fought sanctions against Venezuela’s dictatorial regime. But Donna Shalala didn’t figure it out until it was too late. In a district filled with Castro-hating Cuban-Americans and Venezuelan exiles, Shalala’s campaign committed an egregious gaffe — and set off a round of Democratic finger-pointing — by posting an announcement that she would hold a campaign event Wednesday with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Californian, Rep. Barbara Lee.
  • Where does your toll money go? Miami drivers, sick of traffic and expense, want to know

    The Miami Herald ^ | October 10, 2018 | Dylan Jackson
    In life, some things are unavoidable: death, taxes — and if you live in South Florida — tolls. Coughing up money to drive on the highways add to the cost of living in South Florida. Drivers in Miami-Dade and Broward spent more than a half billion dollars in tolls fees in the last year. Consider: A daily trip from Kendall to downtown Miami costs over $4 roundtrip by Sunpass, or about $1,000 a year for a five-day a week, 50-week commuter. For those who haven’t signed up for Sunpass, the toll-by-plate rate of almost $8 per day amounts to $2,000...

    Russian women are arriving in the U.S. on visas to give birth to dual-citizen babies. The women are traveling to Miami with help from agencies that assist them in finding apartments, doctors and even obtaining visas, services that could total up to $100,000, NBC reported.
