YES INDEED! WHO CONTROL'S SURFSIDE, FLORIDA

There’s a powerful message here: "Wealth is to be earned, and re-earned; it should not be the reward for exploiting others. It does not confer greatness, nor does it necessarily demand trust". "Chabad has never been recognized as a valid Jewish ideology." Chabad ideology is NOT Jewish."

If you can't see what has happened to Surfside, you either don't want to, or perhaps you are deaf, dumb and blind. What a shame!

Resident: "In my opinion SS isnt a town anymore but a corporation....much like Aventura....Large stock holders have the pull.....Silvia.....Shul.....Surfclub.....etc....." no turning back now!

Surfside, Florida election 2014

COMMISSIONER JOSEPH GRAUBART'S FINAL SPEECH BEFORE THE SURFSIDE COMMISSION: MARCH 11, 2014

It’s been my honor to have represented the Town of Surfside and its residents for the past 4 years as Vice Mayor and Commissioner. I have always maintained that the residents’ interests come first. As a result we have life saving rings installed at beach entrances, bike rental stations in town, an improved Bay Harbor Islands K-8 Center and numerous other beneficial enhancements to the residents’ quality of life. And tonight, I have placed two items on the agenda: One, to reduce and enhance construction work hours to prohibit and to restrict construction related noises for the quiet enjoyment of the residents. The other is a smoking ban policy for municipal use property, such as the community center, and park facilities.

It has always been an important goal to make sure that we do our jobs with the greatest transparency. To this end, I am most proud of my agenda item which put the Town’s checkbook online for all to review.

Finally, it is with regret that I feel the need to express my deep disappointment with Mayor Dietch’s positions. When I first joined the commission in March 2010, then Candidate for Mayor Daniel Dietch assured us that there were No Major Changes to the Zoning Code under his Chairmanship and that it was his philosophy to preserve the small town quiet atmosphere – an oasis among the ever increasing traffic congestion and other problems encountered with the increased density and intensity of the areas to the north and south.

It is quite apparent that after 4 years as Chairman of the Planning & Zoning Board; an additional 4 years as Mayor and the P & Z Board’s liaison, the Mayor, like a captain of the ship, has been at the helm of the Town’s zoning code and its direction. I believe he has NOT been straight forward throughout the process in pushing his agenda and I am more than disappointed that he ran unopposed – he did not deserve to run unopposed; but as we know there is apathy. I fear what may occur over the next two years under his ‘the means are justified by the ends’ philosophy and his style of politics as competitive sport.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, I do not want to be associated or remembered for these changes or that style of governing – but rather remembered as the one who fought to put major changes to the Code and projects, such as garages to referendum - thus enabling residents to both participate and determine the direction the Town should take.

Nevertheless, I have gained deep satisfaction in serving the residents and I am truly grateful that you chose to elect me twice - giving me the opportunity to serve and ‘give back’ to my wonderful hometown of over 57 years. Thank you.

Fact: A nefarious plot to physically, economically and politically take over Miami-Dade County and the Town of Surfside, Florida (Prime Florida Real Estate)began thru secret meetings and continues to this day. All in the familyis an association of wealthy individuals, law firms, developers, criminals, construction company interests and lobbyists. We do not claim this occurred in Surfside but add it because we believe various similar tactics have been used in the past, allegedly; in Surfside and in various other communities.

Fact: Howard S. Weinberg continues to associate himself with activities concerning the Town of Surfside and his former in-law relationship with the Swedroe family. We can only guess who is behind all the shennangans.

Read this story in the NY Times, Published Nov 30, 2013. For most of their 38-year marriage, Ivor Rose and Rita Starr lived relatively modestly in Miami Beach, buying and renting commercial and residential properties there". But that's not the whole story. This is the real story behind the artificial one the public gets to read.

50% rule violations.

We (Surfsiders) smelled the stench of corruption from 1111 Kane Concourse back in 2004. We also notice a familiar stench (fishy) arising from 1199 88th Street, Surfside; mainly because there is no such address for Blue Infinity Charters Inc. or this one by the same person. Boats without running lights during evening hours in violation of Coast Guard Rules; runs to ?. Code enforcement department is not interested. Check where the boat docks, and who owns the property.We know The Swedroe Family owns the property next door at 1268 Biscaya and former Surfside Vice Mayor Howard S. Weinberg has been spotted talking to someone from Codes Enforcement at that same site. He is now an active Commissioner from Aventura and this blog wants to know what interest he has in the alleged illegal operation that allows the charter service to dock on it's facilities.


WEINBERG'S CAR IN FRONT OF VACANT LOT IN SURFSIDE.


Complaints come to us daily from Neighbors who say "No permit, no respect, no compliance with law, only arrogance and greed and a pass card from town hall. Swedroe Commercial Marina and Film Studio operations on Biscaya.(drive) Island. Filming goes on there every day." We ask; Just what is going on in that residential area? There are a lot of questions to be answered, such as how much are the residents being taken for to remove the trash and garbage from the site?

Who own's the "DUDEISM"and where is the office for the company? Both Blue Infinity Charter Service and THIS IS POINTLESS PRODUCTIONS LLC, MIAMI SHORES, FL are listed for one Robert Ramos and are private residences in Miami and Miami Shores.They claim "Locally owned and operated by Miami natives" but do not identify themselves. Comment


"An FBI investigation into Republican Congressman Michael Grimm's campaign finances ties him to Israeli Rabbi Yoshiyahu Pinto through donations of more than half a million dollars, and has also led to suspicions of senior Israeli police officers accepting bribes from Pinto."
Just who is Rabbi Yoshivahu Pinto and does he have a direct connection to Surfside? "Shohat’s attorney, David Jaroslawicz, said that Shohat, 31, is a former Israel hedge fund manager tasked with recovering a $10.5 million investment that he and others had made in the 440 West 41st Street building." Editorial comment: "I believe David J is the brother of Issac J who lived in SS, still had an office on Kane and is/was the head of the prison program at the Shul. Blumstein at one point suggested IJ to serve as interim town attorney when the fired Cypen".

Although the master plan took many years longer than they anticipated due to voter opposition in Surfside, the result is exactly what they conspired to be with the exception of the massive Community Center. This conspiracy is much more insidious than reported by the local media. Read all posts.
We allege that some members of the media participated in the secret meetings, due to our intelligence gathering over the many years of operating this blog. We can also allege shell corporations were formed to funnel funds out of the country in 1972 with money flowing to the Cayman Islands.

The truth is finally out and there is no more mystery as to why the crooks get away with breaking laws. They don't work. Florida Considers Eliminating Laws Altogether. We wonder how they expect to accomplish that task.

Perhaps by allowing charter fishing boats to ply the water of Biscayne Bay without proper information.

Fact: You really have to read the volumes of material in this blog and, you will notice many links have been removed from the Internet since first posted here. You will also see connections to what is shown on this front page and the network of corruption. We want readers, to come to your own conclusions.
Fact: Lynn Dannheisser,former attorney for Sunny Isles Beach before being allowed (by then Mayor Chuckie Burkette) to write her own contract to "represent" the commission in Surfside. is working again for the city of Sunny Isles to develop a new program that no one wants or trusts.
Fact: Her former boss at Sunny Isles could not find anyone else in the entire world to hire, so she is back to being a consultant.
Fact: What goes around comes around. We will be there, but sad because authorities took so long in addressing all the corruption from Miami Beach to the State house in Florida into the Halls of Congress.
Fact: CH2M HILL is an American-based global full-service provider of consulting, design, construction, and operations services for corporations, and federal, state, and local governments. The firm is headquartered in Meridian, an unincorporated area of Douglas County, Colorado in the Denver-Aurora Metropolitan Area.
Fact: The firm is employee-owned, with an internal stock market that operates buy/sell events quarterly. Therefore: We allege that Surfside Mayor Daniel Dietch is benefiting personally as an owner of Ch2m Hill and his tenure with the Town of Surfside should be considered a conflict of interest.
Fact: We allege this is CH2M HILL modus operandi

Now that organized corruption in Surfside is run from inside town hall by five self service elected officials and their minions who slived millions out of town money every year now they will want to change more and more systems and sell more and more zoning and put out more and more bonds to build garages and all sorts of things that they let the developers off the hook for --- all for $ome obstensibly unknown reason! on Ch2M Hill

The next move from the corrupt surfside town hall is to try to change the election system again to suit their plans for ongoing total control. They want to push in 'staggered terms' so that the entire commission can never be tossed out together, making sure than any change would take years and be blocked at every turn. Change would be peranently prevented. The sellouts of zoning and public money would continue forever. More bond issues, more public debt, more huge fees for the buddies of those in permanent power. They want to make Surfside into their own little permanent dictatorship to rob from us and let the corrupt ones bathe in the benefits. on Ch2M Hill

Along A1A developers are being gifted huge density increases and are being allowed to build without adequate parking, all to enrich those developers and crease tons of cash to be spread around. The resulting congestion will also put pressure on the town (self created pressure, fictional) to build parking garages at the expense of the taxpayers. Bond counsel fees. Interest payments. The opeation of parking garages raking in cash every day, more and more cash, to spread around into the chosen pockets. Coalvin Giodano's bloated pockets. This is what Surfside has become, a giant crooked cash machine for corruption and crooks to take advantage of with full cooperation from Town Hall. on Ch2M Hill

"Dishonest government officials aren't just wasting your tax dollars," the ad said. "They're betraying your trust. Report public corruption to the FBI." That's right. Crooked officials are so rampant in Florida, we actually have the feds taking out front-page ads … in the state capital, appropriately enough. This shouldn't be a surprise. Last year, a grand jury studied Florida's heinous record and found that more than 800 public officials had been convicted during a 10-year period — the highest total in America. We're talking about everything from bid-rigging to cash payouts. And that says nothing about all the improprieties we read about that never get prosecuted. The statewide grand jury had demanded action. It called for major reforms, tougher penalties, greater disclosure and stronger teeth in the state's anti-corruption efforts. Yet can you guess what legislators did to address this issue last month? Nothing. http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/2011-06-04/news/ on Stogy smoker

Surfside's new definition of "economic development" - selling out the zoning code to the highest bidder, digging the town deeply into long term debt for utility projects that open capacity for megadevelopments, and giving out multiple multimillion dollar contracts, all of which make huge money flow (at the cost of the residents and taxpayers of course). Next up - bond debt for parking garages to keep feeding the cash and debt monsters (yes, at the taxpayers expenses). Economic development indeed. on Stogy smoker

They know that Carlton, beyond being an arrogant bully has along with Deitch corrupted the process in Surfside, with behind the scene schemes and plans. They have come into three successive commission meetings with the seemingly three votes necessary to remove the manager NOW so as not to inflict more damage yet they not only cower in the end but end up giving Carlton even more power.

Surfside residents have had the most effective development control charter amendment in place since over 90 per cent of the town voted for it but now in 2012 the commission and administration want to lie their way into escaping the 2004 amendment by slying changing it into meaningless mush and asking residents to vote yes for mush yes for more corruption of the zonng limitations. The next step might as well to merge Surfside into Sunny Isles and ask the developers how else tax money and public policy can be used to suit their profit scenario. on SPECIAL INTEREST ZONING CODE ADOPTION
