    In the South:

    When you watch Patrick Murphy live you're immediately struck by how cool, how young, how self assured he is, the classic Irish 'pol' with an aura of self confidence and grace; the polished nature of his appearances, the well orchestrated operation as if he'd been born to the political life. Indeed, he has already been compared to a Kennedy by none other than Bill Clinton who predicted he would one day become President.

    The Congressman from Florida's 18th District is a phenomenon to behold. A 32 year old accountant by training who entered politics in 2012, he comes from a storied South Florida family. His father, Tom Murphy Jr., built Coastal Construction, one of the most successful construction companies in the region. Patrick entered politics by barely defeating the notorious 'tea party' darling Alan West by less than a percentage point. Subsequent to that election, the most expensive congressional campaign in history, he cruised to a victory in 2014 spending $5.3 million and garnering 60% of the vote in a majority Republican district in a 'wave' election that heavily favored the Republicans.

#DUMP TRUMP

Jose Sueiro

Donald Trump is the gift that keeps on giving. He's one of those living examples that reality is truly stranger than fiction. And ultimately, as he careens through the Republican field like a wrecking ball through a demolition site, he will prove to be a benefit to our public discourse and political future. Like castor oil or prunes, he's a necessary purgative for the worse within us.

The ultimate question, at least in my case, is how much damage will he bring on his own brand. After all, the Trump name -and the hair- is what sells. With all the braggadocio and bluster there has to be some sense in him as to whether all this attention and fury will ultimately prove helpful to his businesses or end up destroying his brand. Whether all this protest and repudiation will end up affecting his deep pockets.

Local Businesses Protest 'Significant Decline' in Expenditures

Malcolm Lewis Barnes
At a briefing hosted by the National Business League (NBL) in DC's Ward 5 on the eastern side of the city, a standing room only crowd of concerned and angry locally based CBE's (Certified Business Enterprises) met at Denny’s restaurant for breakfast. They were anxious to hear from the newly elected Attorney General, Karl Racine who came to speak about a hot button issue, the newly released Inspector General’s audit report on the District’s compliance with small business expenditure goals; a measure of how much local government invests back into the community. The results of the report showed; “a significant decline' in agencies expendable budgets that reduced spending goals during the 3rd and 4th quarters of FY 2014 from $779 million to $229 million”.{OIG No. 15-2-03EN}

CARTEL LAND

Releasing in July!

Jose Sueiro
360 Degree Communications (360) is proud to be working on the Sundance Award-winning film CARTEL LAND (CL).  With unprecedented access, CL is a harrowing look at the parallel story of Mexican and US vigilantes fighting back against the powerful drug cartels on both sides of the border.
In the Mexican state of Michoacán, Dr. Jose Mireles, a small-town physician known as "El Doctor," leads the Autodefensas, a citizen uprising against the violent Knights Templar drug cartel that has wreaked havoc on the region for years. Meanwhile, in Arizona's Altar Valley – a narrow, 52-mile-long desert corridor known as Cocaine Alley – Tim "Nailer" Foley, an American veteran, heads a small paramilitary group called Arizona Border Recon, whose goal is to stop Mexico’s drug wars from seeping across our border.
Filmmaker Matthew Heineman embeds himself in the heart of darkness as Nailer, El Doctor, and the cartel each vie to bring their own brand of justice to a society where institutions have failed.  CL is a chilling meditation on the breakdown of order and the blurry line between good and evil.
We look forward to speaking with you about this captivating film at your earliest convenience!

Blackbird Bringing

in the Morning Light

Jose Sueiro
Upon my arrival in Spain to the home of a dear friend with the express purpose of commemorating the 6th anniversary of my mother's passing, I realized that outside my room each morning a blackbird, with the lovely cadences of its song, serenaded me, as if welcoming me to Madrid. The bird would position itself directly outside my window and bring in the dawn as if a cherub were awakening me with sweet whispers in my ear. It was a lovely way to start the day and seemed a harbinger of good fortune.
