Here you have the smug, self-righteous and all-around detestable perpetual candidate named Joe Garcia whose signature campaign theme in 2012 was that he was not the allegedly corrupt incumbent he was running against.
But now we know that the entire time perpetual candidate Joe Garcia was running around throwing stones at his opponent, he was doing so from his very own glass house.
As the Miami Herald and several others reported late last week, it has become evident that Joe Garcia’s top (and closest) campaign staffers were allegedly engaged in a sophisticated voter fraud operation that involved hacking into the Miami-Dade County Supervisor of Elections internal servers to generate thousands of absentee ballot requests to be used in that 2012 congressional race.
Make no mistake: this is worse than the case surrounding the recent arrests made in connection to the Hialeah absentee ballot fraud scandal. Continue reading →
One of the topics discussed at the most recent BlogCon gathering in Dallas was how allies on the right–namely self-identified conservatives and libertarians–can unify, better collaborate and basically get along better on political and even personal levels.
This generated one of the most passionate–albeit friendly–debates of the conference. And although I didn’t chime in at the time, it got me thinking.

It was Ronald Reagan who stated, “I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism.” Continue reading →
This past Thursday the Miami-Dade County Republican Executive Committee called a special meeting to elect its vice chairman. This would have normally been a routine, inconsequential exercise for the local county party, but for the events leading up to it.

This effort was apparently not limited to Miami-Dade County, but I digress. Continue reading →
National Geographic recently conducted a survey ahead of an 80s documentary miniseries whose results should come as no surprise to us conservatives and other regular Americans:
If an election were held today between Nobel Prize Laureate Barack Obama and the Man who actually helped liberate hundreds of millions of people from the shackles of tyranny by winning the Cold War, the latter guy would win. Continue reading →
To be clear, that never happened. At least not that I know of. But imagine if it had.
Imagine if an American celebrity supercouple chose South Africa–of all the countries in the world–to vacation in the 1980s at the height of the Apartheid era during rampant human and civil rights abuses.
Imagine them staying at hotels reserved only for whites, dining at restaurants that only allow whites, dancing and partying in clubs where only whites are welcomed, and infusing thousands of American dollars into a regime that will only use that money to continue oppressing its people.
And if all that wasn’t enough, imagine the regime covering and touting these celebrities’ every move on state television, showing what a great time they had as a propaganda ploy to distract from its own oppression and undermine dissidents’ efforts to call international attention to their plight.
