Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz has long been something of a lightning rod on the news networks, vocal proponent of the Trump administration that he is. In recent weeks, however, he has become more than just an engaging mouthpiece on cable news appearances, showing himself to be a formidable force in D.C.
For over a year now the Homestead immigrant housing facility has been a target of leftist outrage. As the immigration narrative was ramping up last summer, the politicization in Homestead began.
Attention-nabbing media figure and serial-banning victim Laura Loomer has announced she will be starting her campaign for the U.S. Congress in the Sunshine State. She will vie for Democrat Lois Frankel's seat in solid-left-leaning District 21. Uphill struggle isn't the half of it: Frankel ran unopposed in 2018.
Democrats are in the process of staging their second round of presidential debates, with the second half taking place via CNN this evening. The party is still contending with 20 candidates and still needs to segregate the field (forgive the triggering term) into two separate evenings of discussions. And Tuesday night, once again, we were treated to the battle of the extremists.
Congressional Republicans gave Robert Mueller and the Democrats a rough ride Wednesday, but no one took on the special counsel with greater intensity than Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla.

The only thing more predictable than the Florida Democrats expressing opposition to the Trump administration's ICE agents enforcing sweeps, is those same Dems misrepresenting the facts of what's taking place.

Problems in casting votes for candidates is as much a part of the Florida landscape as palm trees. Voting issues, ballot complaints, and electoral lawsuits are so much the norm that when an election actually goes off without a hitch, it gets a banner headline. In keeping with that tradition, the Democratic Party has just begun a new lawsuit to seek a change in the voting process.
Billionaire Jeffery Epstein is the absolute height of a polarizing figure. He is accused of some of the most heinous illegalities, but he has managed to skirt severe punishment while enjoying cover from prominent figures.
Epstein's indictment on charges he operated a sex trafficking ring in which he sexually abused dozens of underage girls has reignited hope for many on the political left that President Trump may be implicated, and several South Florida figures are involved.
It's one thing to suggest Democratic leaders like to position themselves either as royalty or exalted leaders above reproach -- but it's even better when they prove that theory to be correct. Enter U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson.
It is something of a staple with Hollywood horror movies: Each sequel has to involve the elimination of the grotesque monster in growingly dramatic terms, only to find a way for him to resurface improbably to justify the remake. In similar fashion, we here in South Florida have witnessed the perpetual reemergence of deposed Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel.
