Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Mendacious Peter Deutsch & Ben Gamla Charter get caught red-handed on YouTube and pull their video before more people can see the truth for themselves
Given what I have written here on the blog in the past on the subject of former Congressman Peter Deutsch's proposed Ben Gamla Charter School in Hallandale Beach -which I have strongly opposed from the very beginning- this post almost writes itself, but this time, a new development has emerged since I last wrote about the subject.
A shoe has dropped.
An embarrassing, smelly mess of a shoe that has left fingerprints for us to examine.
It shows Peter Deutsch for what he truly is, and typically -and I could hardly have dreamed this next part up!- his clumsiness in attempting to erase the truth has only drawn more attention to his impudent mendacity and gall.
Peter Deutsch being Peter Deutsch.
Lost in Translation.
That's an excellent name for the well-thought out and fact-filled essay below penned by www.savehallandale.wordpress.com that I decided to share with you tonight, on the chance you haven't already received it.
It's point is clear and one that I have often written myself, namely that sometimes, things are EXACTLY what they seem.
In this specific case, it's nice of Peter Deutsch & Co. to be so obvious about his mendacity and actually use YouTube to spread his message of... well, it's NOT exactly a celebration of diversity in Hallandale Beach and the actual school kids who already live HERE, is it?
No, Peter Deutsch & Co. are exactly whom I and the other concerned citizens of this city thought they were when he personally said over a year ago -at one of HB Comm. Keith London's monthly Resident Forum meetings with HB citizens- that there was absolutely nothing that anyone in this city could do to stop him from getting what HE wanted. No citizen, no elected official -NOBODY.
This latest piece of the puzzle described so accurately by savehallandale seems like what some people with old-fashioned notions of serious journalism actually call NEWS.
I'm one of them.
It would be nice for a change to actually see this story treated in the serious fashion that it has long deserved, say, sometime before that HB City Commission meeting in two weeks, on the 18th, at 6 p.m.
But perhaps you think differently.
I guess we'll all see what South Florida media outlets really think is news.
In any case, regardless of what you do, this will be the last time you hear from me on the unpopular Ben Gamla Charter School, a development proposal that any reasonable person can see doesn't just ignore the genuine needs of school kids in THIS city, but threatens to turn a largely single-family neighborhood in NE HB into a perpetual parking lot, courtesy of parents who live in distant Broward and Miami-Dade cities that are NOT named Hallandale Beach.
