IT'S MARCO TO THE RESCUE!


By Evelio Perez
  The wait is over folks, today Florida Senator Marco Rubio has announced in Miami's Freedom Tower (Miami Cuban's Ellis Island), his candidacy for the Presidency of the United States.
Rubio, a Tea Party favorite and Republican rising star was one of Governor Mitt Romney's final choices to be his vice-presidential running-mate in the 2012 election, although not chosen, he was seen by many, including the great Maharishi himself, Rush Limbaugh as one who has what it takes to one day become President of the United States.
 Not since Bill Clinton or Ronald Reagan have we had such a great public speaker and communicator in the likes of Senator Rubio.
 Like it or not, young and dynamic leadership with new ideas is what is going to take to defeat the massive and powerful Clinton Political machine. So strap yourselves in folks, it's going to be a doozy.........................

Marco Rubio (From Wikipedia)
Here's Marco with his parents

 Marco Antonio Rubio was born on May 28, 1971 in Miami, Florida, the second son and third child of Mario Rubio and Oria Garcia. His parents were Cubans who had immigrated to the United States in 1956 and were later naturalized as U.S. citizens in 1975.   

 Rubio's family was Roman Catholic, but from age 8 to age 11, he and his family attended The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints while they lived in Las Vegas. He received his first communion as a Catholic in 1984, before moving back to Miami with his family a year later. He was confirmed and married in the Catholic Church. 
Rubio attended South Miami Senior High School and graduated in 1989. He then attended Tarkio College for one year on a football scholarship from 1989 to 1990, before enrolling at Santa Fe Community College (now Santa Fe College). He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Florida in 1993, and his J.D. degree cum laude from the University of Miami School of Law in 1996. While studying law, he interned for U.S. Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.

 After having served as a City Commissioner for West Miami, Rubio was elected to the Florida House of Representatives for the 111th district in a special election on January 25, 2000. He won each of his re-election bids. In November 2006, he was elected Speaker of the Florida House for the 2007–09 term.

   
 On May 5, 2009, Rubio announced on his website that he planned to run for the United States Senate in 2010 for the Republican seat being vacated by Sen. Mel Martinez, who had resigned and been replaced by George LeMieux. Prior to the announcement, he had been meeting with fundraisers and supporters throughout the state. Initially trailing by double-digits against the incumbent Governor of his own party, Charlie Crist, Rubio eventually surpassed Crist in polling for the Republican nomination.
On April 28, 2010, Crist announced he would be running as an independent, effectively ceding the Republican nomination to Rubio. Several of Crist's top fundraisers, as well as Republican leadership, refused to support Crist after Rubio won the Republican nomination for the Senate.
 On November 2, 2010, Marco Rubio won the general election with 48.9 percent of the vote to Crist's 29.7 and Democrat Kendrick Meek's 20.1.

 Rubio married Jeanette Dousdebes, a former bank teller and Miami Dolphins cheerleader, in 1997. She is of Colombian descent, and together they have four children named Amanda, Daniella, Anthony, and Dominic.
Rubio and his family live in West Miami, Florida.
Rubio attends Catholic Mass as well as a Southern Baptist church in West Kendall, Florida.

 Folks, there is no doubt in my mind that we have reached the final and critical stages for not only saving this once great country, but humanity itself from the many apocalyptic enemies that are beginning to alter the outlook and security of this country.  
 We are going to have many good choices in the Republican field with different ideas of how to lead this country....... but in my book Senator Rubio stands out as the one determined, capable, and descent man ready to to undertake this enormous task of rebuilding this crumbling and bleeding shell of a once proud republic.

AMERICAN JEWS, WHEN IS THE FINAL INSULT?

By Evelio Perez
 Many of us on the other side of the political spectrum have been trying to figure out the LOVE AFFAIR between American Jews and The Democrat Party.

Somebody help me please!

 President Barack Hussein Obama in a major policy speech early in his administration, has clearly chosen sides between the Arabs and The Jews by stating "it will be the policy of The United States of America to promote reform in the Middle East," by that he meant that Israel must comply with all Arab demands. 

 In order to achieve his goal of a "fairer" Middle East, President Obama must sacrifice the security and sovereignty of The Democratic State of Israel in order to show worthiness for his (Not Earned) Nobel Peace Prize.



   President Obama got off to a roaring start by disregarding and disrespecting the Jewish State by "urging" (demanding) that "both sides start reconciliation talks, setting Israel's borders that existed before the 1967 war as it's starting point" of any negotiation between these fierce blood enemies. 
Not surprisingly Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's angry response was that it was "not going to happen." Netanyahu said that “while Israel is prepared to make generous compromises for peace, it cannot go back to the 1967 lines, because these lines are indefensible, because they don't take into account certain changes that have taken place on the ground, demographic changes that have taken place over the last 44 years.”
In 1967, Netanyahu said, “Israel was all of 9 miles wide -- half the width of the Washington Beltway... So we can't go back to those indefensible lines, and we're going to have to have a long-term military presence along the Jordan.”

Inexplicably, the insults continue......................

 There is no respect shown to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in one of their their White House meetings  When “Benjamin Netanyahu was left to stew in a White House meeting room for over an hour after President Barack Obama abruptly walked out of tense talks to have supper with his family"................. The Telegraph.

 "We continue to emphasize that America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements".....
"The time has come to re-launch negotiations without preconditions that address the permanent status issues: security for Israelis and Palestinians, borders, refugees, and Jerusalem." .......... Barack Obama At The United Nations.

 “On the other hand, it is also undeniable that the Palestinian people – Muslims and Christians – have suffered in pursuit of a homeland. For more than sixty years they have endured the pain of dislocation. Many wait in refugee camps in the West Bank, Gaza, and neighboring lands for a life of peace and security that they have never been able to lead. They endure the daily humiliations – large and small – that come with occupation. So let there be no doubt: the situation for the Palestinian people is intolerable. America will not turn our backs on the legitimate Palestinian aspiration for dignity, opportunity, and a state of their own.” .....  Obama's Cairo speech to the Muslim world.... Any thoughts on the hundreds of missiles fired daily at innocent Israeli civilians?
 
"Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu has embraced the vision of the two-state solution. But easing up on access and movement in the West Bank, in response to credible Palestinian security performance, is not sufficient to prove to the Palestinians that this embrace is sincere. We encourage Israel to continue building momentum toward a comprehensive peace by demonstrating respect for the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinians, stopping settlement activity and addressing the humanitarian needs in Gaza."....... Secretary of State Hillary Clinton - The Telegraph.

 "This was an affront, it was an insult but most importantly it undermined this very fragile effort to bring peace to that region. For this announcement to come at that time was very destructive."...... Obama Senior Adviser David Axelrod attacks new Israeli settlements in East Jerusalem NBC’s Meet the Press

 In a telephone callthe US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, ordered Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu to reverse a decision to build 1,600 homes for Israeli settlers in occupied East Jerusalem that sparked the diplomatic row. She also instructed him to issue a formal pledge that peace talks would focus on core issues such as the future of Jerusalem and the borders of a Palestinian state. 
In addition, the Israeli prime minister was urged to make a substantial confidence-building gesture to the Palestinians. Mrs. Clinton suggested this could take the form of prisoner releases, an easing of the blockade of Gaza and the transfer of greater territory in the West Bank to Palestinian control........... The Telegraph 
White House declines Netanyahu request to meet with Obama - The White House's response marks a new low in relations between Netanyahu and Obama, underscored by the fact that this is the first time Netanyahu will visit the U.S. as prime minister without meeting Obama.Source

 Earlier on Tuesday, Netanyahu launched an unprecedented verbal attack on the U.S. government over its stance on the Iranian nuclear program...."The world tells Israel 'wait, there's still time'. And I say, 'Wait for what? Wait until when?' Those in the international community who refuse to put red lines before Iran don't have a moral right to place a red light before Israel," Netanyahu told reporters on Tuesday..... The Telegraph

Obama pressures Israel to apologize to Turkey
Before departing Israel for Jordan on the last leg of his March 2013 trip to the Middle East, President Obama arranged for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to submit to Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan's demand for an apology regarding Israel’s interdiction of the Mavi Marmara, a Turkish ship that was part of an anti-Israel activist flotilla attempting to break Israel’s lawful naval blockade of Gaza in 2010. Israel also agreed to pay several million dollars in compensation to the victims’ families.

A group titled “One Voice,” funded by American donors, pays for the Obama campaign team, led by Obama 2012 field director Jeremy Bird. The announcement comes days after Speaker of the House John Boehner’s invite to Netanyahu to speak before a joint session of Congress. Obama quickly announced he would not meet with Netanyahu, making the excuse that the meeting would come too close to the election.... From Breitbart
  Prime Minister Netanyahu wins his election......But  Obama refuses to call him to congratulate him for two days. When he does, he threatens to remove American support in the international community, even as he moves to loosen sanctions and weapons embargoes on Iran..... From Breitbart
                                          
They know who Obama is in Israel
  Not only did Obama wait 2 days to call the Israeli Prime Minister, but he makes a mind boggling video plea to the Iranian people (who despises their government) and the Ayatollahs, promoting a devastating nuclear deal with Israel's most feared enemy which would allow the Iranians to make nuclear weapons in 10 years. Once again undermining the security and the lives of all Jews in Israel.
What is it going to take for the American Jew to wake up from this nightmarish alliance with people they think are their friends? They don't act very friendly, do they? When is the final insult?
Do they really believe so much in their liberalism that they would allow the great State of Israel be fed to the wolves by their own allies in the Democrat Party?
It's not about who these people step on, it's about how fast can they reach their idealistic socialist goal of global domination........... and if they have to step over one of our fiercest and loyal allies, so be it.

 Folks, the far left has made their choice clear. After all of these years of hiding behind their real intentions, they have finally shown their devious hand. They have clearly allied themselves with the Muslim world and the mortal enemies of the state of Israel. 
 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney said it best, "President Obama has thrown Israel under the bus. He has
disrespected Israel and undermined its ability to negotiate peace. He has also violated a first principle of American foreign policy, which is to stand firm by our friends".

 It is time to reflect, and verify all that we, the conservative right have been saying for years and condemn President Obama and the Democrats as traitors to the Jewish cause.
Israel's survival is going to depend on the American Jew, they must stand tall and demand respect not only for themselves here in America but they must demand full and unquestionable support for the only democracy in the Middle East, anything less would open the possibility for yet another Jewish holocaust.
We must learn from the past so that history does not repeat itself, now where have I heard this?

MY 41 YEARS AS A LONGSHOREMAN IN THE ILA

BY EVELIO PEREZ
Me and my Dad
    One unsuspecting and normal day in March of 1972 my Father, Evelio Perez Sr. (RIP), who had been working in the Port of Miami for some time, along with my twin Brother, Eddie Perez (RIP) who started the year before, tells me that there is an opening in the docks for one worker. I was to report at 5:30 am to the union hall in the port and hopefully work as a Checker for The I.L.A. (International Longshoremen's Association) early next morning.

    My immediate reaction was to jump off my chair and yell in total euphoria, just knowing that the starting hourly wage was $3.15 an hour was enough to get me very exited. That was a huge amount of money those days when you could get gasoline for 20 cents a gallon! Heck, my folks even bought a house in the Gables for 15 thousand dollars! 
Me and my twin 
brother Eddie (RIP) 

    I remember showing up in my first day at the I.L.A. Local 1922 Union Hall around 5:30 am sitting in a big room full of people wearing their hard-hats. All of them were waiting for their name to be called. As the room started to empty out, my name was finally called by this big intimidating burly man named Bill Boyle. He says with his heavy, raspy voice, "Hey kid, you're Bebo's (My Dad's nickname) son right?" Of course I stumbled and babbled around just to say the words yes sir. Then he says "go to CCT Shed C and start at 8:00 am............ Good Luck"

      Yes, on my very first day I was sent to one of the busiest companies in The Port of Miami as a shipping clerk to work at receiving and delivering cargo in this huge and busy warehouse.
  My first thoughts when I got there (before work started) was that there was no way that I could last in this crazy place, it was a complete mad house! There were drivers everywhere and they all wanted their cargo. I was stunned and overwhelmed. 
Little did I know that as soon as 8:00 am (starting time) came around, the Checkers would quickly have everything running smoothly and under full control.

40 Years of service award
   My Dad (RIP) also had made many friends in the Local that helped me get through those first couple of weeks, including a very nice older gentleman named (same as my Dad and I) Evelio Bosh. After introducing himself, Mr. Bosh said to me, "don't worry about a thing kid, just stick with me, and we'll get through this day together." 
  On that first day, from 8 am all the way to quitting time at 5 pm, Mr. Bosh was taking care of me like he was my own father. He showed me the correct way to receive and deliver cargo, he would also explain that any one little error could lead to thousands of dollars in loses to the customer.  


With President Jerry Becerra
   It was a very busy day, the work was tiring, relentless and never ending, but the professionalism and experience of the Checkers always kept up with the busy work load in an impressive and orderly fashion. There is no doubt in my mind that if not for the help of Mr. Bosh and the rest of the Checkers, I would not have survived that hectic first day. 
Here's Butch having some
 nice words to tell me.......
 I remember my Dad would everyday give me the drill, "always be neat, always bring your tape measure, clipboard, pens, pencils and your hardhat." He would also tell me, "it's always better to write more information on the interchange than less, you never know if that extra bit of information would be useful and important in the future."
My father was not only my best friend, he was my mentor. He was the most honest and kindest man I've ever known and there was no way that I was going to let him down.

Monument for 
the fallen
  The port is not an easy place to work in, there are dangers all around where you could easily be hurt badly or even get killed (as many have) in a split second if you let your guard down. That is why there is no substitution for experience and doing the job the correct and safe way. That one mistake could either cost thousands of dollars or your your precious life.......That is the life of an I.L.A. dockworker. 

 The hours are always unpredictable, you are on call 24 hours a day and 7 days a week............ that was part of the deal. It could be a regular starting time of 8 am or ship times that could start close to midnight. There was a lot of times that the hours turned into days in which turned into a very descent paycheck. But let me be clear, there is no substitute for having the right amount of training and skills to efficiently work in the port.  


With V.P. Luis Gonzalez
  There are many reasons why I love The ILA, one being the relations you have with fellow workers. From day one there was always the feeling that all my co-workers were watching my back as I in turn watched theirs. We all yearned for the same things in life, a good home, good wage, good health care and the ability to provide our families a good and healthy environment to grow as good citizens of this great country.

With friend and boss,
 Guy Colicelli
   You never knew what you were going to do or where you were going to work. We expected anything and everything. We could either stuff or strip containers, reefers, rail cars, or receive and deliver cargo to the customers (truckers). We could work cargo or cruise ships, container yards, car yards, offloading or loading loose cargo, cars, heavy equipment or containers under slow stick cranes or fast gantry cranes. All of these jobs I did in South Florida ports, which included Port Everglades, The Port of Miami and even some warehouses around the airport. I was even Chief Clerk (The Boss) for 4 years. In my last few years I worked in a trailer command center in the Port of Miami (POMTOC) set up to do the work with computers and cameras.

With long time friend,
 Juan Losada
  Throughout my 41 years as a longshoreman, there have been many people that took their time and effort to be helpful and nice, like Pres. Jerry Becerra, V.P.Luis Gonzalez, Sec. Butch Vanderwyde, Walter Bretana, Luis Meurice, Bob Fiore, Tony Arrufat, Johnny Bruns, Tony Soto, Rudy Valdez, Evelio Bosh, Phil Knapp, Freddy Castillo (RIP), Irving Schwartzberg (RIP), Guy Colicelli, Juan Losada and the rest of my brothers in the local. When times were tough and believe me there were plenty, these great men were always there watching my back.
Esophageal Cancer
   In 1997 I got the unexpected and debastating news that I had esophageal cancer. I knew back then that statistics gave me and anybody that got this horrible disease a 5% chance of survival. So I basically said as much to everyone. I would tell all that would listen that I probably won't be back (I truly believed that). But true to form, my boss at that time the late Irving Schwartzberg (RIP) assured me that I was coming back and that my steady job would be there............. I did and it was.

  The operation as successful as it was, left me with one paralyzed vocal cord during the procedure (I had no voice). My stomach replaced my esophagus and literally moved close to my left lung where it was not able to expand as needed to freely breathe after a tiring day.
  The operation to remove my cancerous esophagus was experimental and the complications that arose from it required another major operation, just to save my life. But with God's grace and the many prayers from many friends and family, the cancer had not spread to other parts of my body.

Me with Vivian on our 
wedding day   
   My wife and best friend Vivian (who showed her love many times over), stayed with me in the hospital for 37 days and nights. She never went home! She sometimes didn't know if I was going to make it on certain days, but she persevered. My loving mother was also there most of the time (at one time hospitalized herself during my stay), giving Vivian much needed breaks, like bathing, lunch, dinner and short naps.


    When I finally left the hospital, I was a total mess. I was so weak that I was barely able to walk. I had to regain my strength just to walk again. I couldn't sleep (without chocking a few times a night), walk, talk or able to breathe very well on my own. It was going to be a very long and rough road ahead for me to be able to be well enough to provide for my loving family. My days as a Longshoreman and my ability to provide for my family seemed in serious doubt.


My Family
   But.................. for the three straight months that I was out, my brothers in the Union passed the hat and collected enough money that actually took care of all of my bills, including the mortgage. That money from my brothers of the Local was all I needed to strive to work harder and get better, it was heaven sent!

  Well, to make the story short, I rehabilitated myself enough to walk but was having a tough time adjusting to my new and dilapidated body............... I would never be the same. The smell of car fumes alone was having a effect on my ability to breathe and my lack of sleep because of my condition was taking a huge toll on my health and my family.


My work station
    When I did return, knowing my condition, President Jerry Becerra and my bosses, Irving Swartzberg (RIP) and Guy Colicelli did everything to make my return possible, permanent and successful.
 From day one after my return, they bent over backwards and allowed me to work inside, away from the damaging dust and diesel fumes out on the field. I worked the computers in a container yard (POMTOC) receiving and delivering containers, dealing with drivers just as I had on my first day of work 41 years ago until my final day of my retirement.
Getting my watch! 
  
   My journey began with me wanting to make good money, have good insurance and the ability to have all the comforts I needed. But I also ended up with an undying allegiance and respect that I have grown to have for this great Union and the awesome band of brothers that I've grown to love.

Thanks to Danny and 
Michelle for this awesome
 and yummy cake!!!!!! 
    So on behalf of my father, Evelio Perez (RIP) 30 years in the Local, my twin brother Eduardo (Eddie) Perez (RIP) 30 years (who should have retired with me) in the Local, and myself, 41 years in the Local, I want to thank God, my loving family and all of my brothers in the I.L.A. for everything.
 I am a better person having known you all.

BEWARE OF THE LATINO TROJAN HORSE

By Evelio Perez
 As a Cuban-American and a Hispanic I write this article with shame and disgust over the illegal immigration culture war presently dividing and infesting this great nation. 

 Have we Hispanics lost our mind? How in God's good name can we justify imposing our will and culture on our gracious hosts? Aren't we supposed to learn English and assimilate ourselves with the American way of life?

 This current fiasco has nothing to do with bigotry and has everything to do with overrunning this country with failed people from failed countries and changing the political dynamics forever, some of these troublemakers are even trying to retake lost territory for Mexico! How do I know? They are telling us !

 The United States government and it's people have bent backwards to be reasonable and humane with the illegal immigrants only to be called fascists and racists in their own country......... (This takes huge COJONES) Our way of life is being threatened and it is now time to take our country back......ENOUGH IS ENOUGH !


 The United States government's duty to all of it's citizens is to keep them safe from harm within the sovereign borders of this great nation. The moment that defending ourselves becomes politically incorrect is the moment that we have lost the battle for preserving any reasonable chance to keep our families safe from all illegal invaders, including the people that want to do us harm. We must completely close the borders and enforce the laws of the land, our survival depends on it.

 I am embarrassed and ashamed of fellow (LATINOS) Hispanics that choose anarchy over the rule of law and this is not the first time. Their willful disregard of American laws and lives is displayed daily in most major cities with killer street gangs running amok selling drugs and terrorizing American neighborhoods. The anti-gringo fervor is in an all time high and if we don't put a stop to all of this madness right now, we will all be responsible for for the carnage that will follow.


 As Cuban refugees we have also felt the wrath of our Hispanic Camaradas (Comrades), we were the minority within the Hispanic minority and we were looked down on for because we disliked Fidel Castro! 

 Do you know why they like Castro and El Che so much
folks? Because they stood up to the evil gringos, that's why. They could not understand why we would hate such a great hero of the common people, and because of that we became the ignorant nuisance and embarrassment of the Hispanic community. We were ridiculed for choosing hard work over welfare and blasted for siding with conservative values that mostly sided with the Republican Party for all these years.

 The day that I became a citizen of this country, I swore an oath that I would support and defend the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America. This pledge of allegiance was made with my full consent and total understanding of what all of this meant including my total commitment for the rule of law.

 I do see pockets of decent Hispanics breaking out of the nanny state of mind that has kept many of them from reaching the American dream. It is my hope that they take up the mantle and lead the fight of standing up for America when America needs us the most, because God knows that America stood up for us.................

ARE HONOR & INTEGRITY LOST FOREVER ?

By Evelio Perez
               
 Have Honor and Integrity become a relic of the past? Have we become so morally corrupted that we have so drastically lowered our standards in the new world of politically correct and misguided modernism?
  The other day, I was having dinner with my wife and kids and overheard some young people (in their teens) in the next booth seriously disrespecting the elderly couple dining with them, specifically this older gentleman. Out loud, these young bullies would mock the older couple by saying mean things like "all this old fart ever does is talk about Honor and Integrity. "They continued to make fun and insult this seemingly good older man and his wife simply because they did not understand what these magnificent words meant.

 I thought about it long and hard and was amazed at how people today perceive those two very important traits of a man's character and how the new perspective of these values and the new generation's idea of modernism are cheapening the meaning of these very important words.

 Many people that live by those words today are ridiculed and ostracized simply for having the courage to defend these precious conservative values. We as a center-right country need to re-focus and start teaching our children the importance of why these words are so crucial in how you lead your life.

 You read about the great men and women throughout our history that knew what those words meant, they said what they meant and meant what they said.

 Many stood for what was right, even if it meant certain death. These are the heroes that have given their blood, sweat and tears and even their lives to give us what we have today, the greatest country in the history of civilization and that........... is what makes these people special.

  A man with Honor has the ability to be counted on to do the right thing every time, regardless of the situation. This is crucial in how you are measured and trusted by your family and friends.


 Integrity has to do with always doing the right thing, even if the outcome is not in your interest.


 There are some things that great people strive to achieve as their goal in life, be true to your God, friends and family, honor your commitments and defend what is right regardless of the consequences. If you give your all in the pursuit of defending what is morally right, you will forever be known as an honorable person who made a difference in many people's lives. That is something that no one can ever take away from you............. not now, not ever.
