Weather forecast: 100% chance of stone-cold facts raining down on Bill Julian & Alexander Lewy for 10 days in a row
Now the fun begins!
Tomorrow starts ten days in a row of stone-cold facts raining down hard on Hallandale Beach City Commission candidates Bill Julian and Alexander Lewy's heads.
And to be honest, I really don't think their umbrellas are going to be up to the task, either. Stone-cold facts are funny that way.
And trust me when I tell you, fun will be had by all.
Well, except by them -and their supporters- of course, who will now FINALLY have to deal with so many Hallandale Beach citizens, Broward County pols and interested parties -plus the South Florida news media, such as it is- knowing a whole lot more about Julian and Lewy than the two of them ever counted on anyone else knowing.
As it is, even if I weren't going to be doing anything -which was never going to happen- Lewy and Julian were going to be awfully busy the last ten days of the campaign, anyway, going around town and telling their preposterous lies and misrepresentations to Hallandale Beach citizens with a straight face, because telling the truth is so very unthinkable.
But starting tomorrow, Lewy and Julian will have the added burden of knowing that the very best-informed people in the entire city, the ones who are, in fact, most-interested in the HB City Commission election and who most want to see genuine and permanent accountability, transparency and fiscal sanity at Hallandale Beach City Hall, will know many of the very "inconvenient" and terribly unflattering facts about the two of them.
The stone-cold facts that Julian and Lewy have both tried their best to avoid talking about or disclosing, because the known facts are so mendacious, unethical or, as you'll find out, just plain creepy.
But that's how stone-cold facts are sometimes.
As we all know from experience, stone-cold facts are even better when you have photos and video to illustrate them, and can thus connect them to your particular points.
Believe me, I will be making full use of photos and video in the days leading up to the November 2nd election.
You can either trust me on that point or not, but you should know now that my biggest problem with these particular upcoming posts about Lewy and Julian is not one of what to include, but rather one of what to leave out because there is only so much time and space.
In their own ridiculous ways, Lewy and Julian have given me so much material over the past few years that I, quite literally, have a mountain of evidence to comb thru and select in order to give you particularly telling examples of their individual lack of judgment, honesty, fairness and common sense.
They are nothing, if not consistent.
The truth is, when you are very observant and patient and can see the connections-between-issues that others often can't -and keep a reliable camera with you wherever you go, to document what is happening around both you and the city- it's actually easy to build a molehill of evidence pretty quickly, given where we are and how badly-run the city is run.
But because we're dealing with Alexander Lewy and Bill Julian, I literally have a mountain of evidence.
Someone go to their window and yell out, "AVALANCHE!"
As far as I'm concerned, Bill Julian and Alexander Lewy's biggest problem isn't merely that SO MANY smart, discerning and well-informed people in this city DON'T think they are in any way qualified and competent for the City Commission job they are running for, but rather that I have paid VERY, VERY close attention to what each one of them has said and done in public for so very long.
And have documented it.
I'm hip to their M.O's and see right through them, and when you know the stone-cold facts, too, you will see thru them like a laser.
Lewy and Julian's own words and actions are their worst enemy now, and over the next few days, everyone who wants to know what I have known about both of them for a very, very long time, WILL.
And lest I remind you, when it rains, it pours!

Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015
Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.
Today is the day. Today is a celebration. Today is my day. Today, I hiked, I photographed, and I explored. Today I choose to love. Today I'm happy. Today I'm blessed. Today is my birthday. Today is a special day for you and me. #birthdaygirl #birthday #birthdaymonth #brazil #braziltrip #rio #theview #livingthelife #lifeisgood #morro #rio #praia #travel #miami #miamigirl #luckygirl #loveisintheair #justdoit #artist #photographer #photography #taiwan #beautiful #vacation #viajar #instagood #smile #dreambig #wishes #true
