José Javier Rodriguez y Debbie Mucarsel Powell: ¿Y que hay atrás de esa cortina de humo? El caudillismo y la corrupción

Al oír a los republicanos acusar a sus contrarios de "socialistas", sale a la luz el deseos de tender una cortina de humo para confundir. ¿Por qué son estos ataques tan exagerados y extremistas contra los demócratas? Los republicanos nos acusan hoy de “socialistas” por cualquier cosa.

Causa mucha confusión entre los hispanos, todavía acostumbrándonos al nuevo partido republicano, y sobre todo procedentes de países que sufrieron dictaduras comunistas.

El partido de Trump celebra a Rusia y a Corea del Norte mientras que ataca a la OTAN. Sus fieles defienden al presidente cuando Trump pide el encarcelamiento de su rival electoral (Clinton), cuando llama a la prensa “el enemigo del pueblo” o cuando impugna la independencia de las cortes. A la hora de culpar a alguien por los problemas mayores del país, culpa a los inmigrantes. El lenguaje demagógico de Trump, gobernando por decretos emitidos por Twitter, es el de un autócrata populista.

Aaron Bos-Lun: Three-pronged strategy to turn Florida Blue in 2020

It’s been a little over two months since I started as the Executive Director of the Miami-Dade Democratic Party. Just like the phrase, “all roads lead to Rome,” our local Democratic Party is operating under an “all roads lead to 2020” mentality. The stakes could not be higher: if Miami-Dade goes heavily blue, Florida goes blue. No Republican has won the White House without Florida in over 100 years, so without Florida... Donald Trump is a one-term President. 

We have a three-pronged strategy to make it happen: voter engagement, organizing, and candidate recruitment/support.

Miami-Dade Democrats Support Speaker Pelosi Opening Impeachment Inquiry

The Miami-Dade Democratic Party applauds the leadership of Speaker Nancy Pelosi in initiating an impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump and Party Chair Steve Simeonidis released the following statement:

 

“The latest realization, even by the standards of the Trump Presidency, suggests deeply un-American behavior.  The leader of our country withheld $400 million in military aid to Ukraine, days before pressuring their President to investigate the son of his political opponent.  President Trump has admitted publicly, if not proudly, that he has attempted to get the Ukrainian government to ‘dig up dirt’, or even make up dirt, on Hunter Biden.  For the President of the United States to pressure a foreign government to act against an American citizen is unconscionable.  To do so as part of an effort to undermine a political opponent is beyond unprecedented and requires the strongest response within our Constitutional system to check the power of a would-be tyrant.

 

No one is above the law.  We are proud of our South Florida Congressional Representatives Donna Shalala, Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz for standing with the Speaker.  We implore Republicans to think of how history will view them, and to use their power to uphold their oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Steve Simeonidis: It's on us to organize and engage over 600,000 Democrats in Miami-Dade

There are few events in the history of our country where everyone can remember where they were and what they were doing when it happened. Donald Trump’s election is one of them. In the last century, no Republican has won the White House without winning Florida. Only once in the last 60 years has the winner of Florida not gone on to win the White House. As the largest county in the largest swing state in the nation, Miami-Dade is the most important county in the country when it comes to denying him a second term. It is on us to lead the charge.
