The newspaper, in its 300-year-long history, was the primary source for news and events. American society depended on newspapers to let them know what was happening and how to prepare for things to come. Since the advent of the Internet, a number of major metropolitan dailies have been shuttered or drastically pruned. This massive decline in Newspaper circulation has led to a Rebirth of Journalism. The way news is transmitted, shared and read have all been transformed.
OUT WITH THE OLD IN WITH THE NEW: MAVERICK ARTIST VICTOR-HUGO VACA II INTRODUCES THE WORLD TO MODERN-ART-GONZO-JOURNALISM WITH HIS DIARY OF THE WORLD ON CANVAS.
Maverick Artist Victor-Hugo Vaca II In Front Of Skeletal Remains Of The Miami Herald Building Before It Is Imploded, Bulldozed & Scrapped, Due To Declining Public Trust In Reporting, Declining Sales & Circulation.
What Victor-Hugo Vaca II has manifested, for public consumption, is modern-art-gonzo- journalism. By fusing the style of Salvador Dali’s cryptic artwork, containing hidden messages and clues, with Hunter S. Thompson’s gonzo journalism, he has created a diary of the world on canvas, to tell the untold story of an, alleged, serial-killer spinal-surgeon using money, lawyers and influence to perpetuate his, alleged scheme, of becoming the most prolific serial-killer in history and to warn masses of a small group of home-grown terrorists, disguised as lawyers, judges and lobbyists, who have infiltrated the U.S. Justice system, Congress, Senate and The White House, to undermine the Constitution, in order to actualize the death of democracy and herald a New World Order.
THE INFAMOUS MIAMI HERALD VICTOR- HUGO VACA II U.S. NAVAL ACADEMY ARTICLE THAT EXPOSED WEAK INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM OVERLOOKING THE DANGERS OF ENABLING TOXIC LEADERSHIP AND ITS FUTURE IMPACT ON SOCIETY.
On May 24, 1990, The Miami Herald published a story by staff writer, Mike Wilson, titled, “DIARY OF A YEAR IN HELL: The Navy called it ‘plebe year’. Midshipman Fourth-Class Victor Vaca called it harassment.” Besides getting his name wrong in the headline, his birth certificate reads, “Victor-Hugo Vaca Jr.”, The Miami Herald whitewashed the front-page world news story by understating the dangerous impact of breeding toxic leadership at the world famous United States Naval Academy, by training young officers to torture suspects and sexually assault female officers in an elite, powerful, clandestine community. It is no wonder that, recent news headlines indicate, U.S. military leadership problems persist, at the U.S. Naval Academy and other tactical training institutions.

SEE SOMETHING; SAY SOMETHING: Victor-Hugo Vaca II felt it was his patriotic duty, to expose the horrors he witnessed, as a United States Naval Academy Midshipman. He saw leadership training, that eventually led to Abu Ghraib torture and prisoner abuse, as acceptable practice by U.S. military command and he knew that what he had witnessed, was not proper instruction for future commanders of the free world.
VICTOR -HUGO VACA II QUOTED IN THE SUN FRONT PAGE USNA ARTICLE “I TRIED TO STICK UP FOR MY RIGHTS, AND THATS’S WHAT GOT ME INTO TROUBLE.”
Maverick Artist Victor-Hugo Vaca II was a whistleblower, trying to warn mankind, of the dangerous butterfly-effect, abuse of power would have on the future that now exists, in the age of Donald Trump versus Hillary Clinton, where lies are acceptable as truth and honor has all but disappeared, but The Miami Herald chose to present the story as a personal account of hazing instead of focusing on the big picture.

When Victor-Hugo Vaca II gave The Miami Herald his diary, he trusted editors would see the big picture and focus on the potential global impact of his unique experience; instead, they chose to spotlight minor incidents, like upperclassmen teasing his name. Teasing is a lot different than torture and shortsighted journalists failing to differentiate between the two in foreseeing the long term impacts on society is one example of why public trust has plummeted in news outlets.
USNA Midshipman Officer Victor-Hugo Vaca Jr.
Fast-forward to November 30, 2005, when The Miami Herald published a story by staff writer, Elinor J. Brecher, titled, “ARTIST SAYS CONDO WORKERS DESTROYED HIS ART PROJECT: An artist complained to police that his Hurricane Wilma-related art installation was damaged by somebody making repairs after Hurricane Wilma.” Besides getting Victor-Hugo Vaca II’s name wrong, again, the article failed to mention the fact that the 2005 Miami Art Basel week exhibit, was created to bring worldwide attention to allegations, that Baltimore spinal-surgeon, Dr. Charles Edwards, was more than just a slumlord, he was also, an alleged serial-killer.

When Victor-Hugo Vaca II confronted Elinor J. Brecher about this, she said Dr. Edwards legal team had sent a letter to The Miami Herald editors reminding them that he was a long time advertiser with the newspaper and that her series of investigative reports about the notorious Doctor and his trouble plagued North Bay Village monolith, The Grand View Palace, were creating potential harm to there longstanding business relationship.
“I thought newspapers were about reporting news?” Victor-Hugo Vaca II said.
“Wake up!” Elinor J Brecher answered. “Newspapers are a business.”
Crackhead Jesus Is Coming On Miami Herald
She went on to tell Victor-Hugo Vaca II how Miami Herald staff had been worried about losing their jobs based on rumors of a Knight-Ridder buyout by McClatchy and that the newspaper industry, would be decimated by the Internet. In March of 2006, McClatchy assumed about $2 billion in Knight Ridder’s debt when they purchased The Miami Herald and Brecher’s prediction about mobile technology and the Internet transforming newspapers came to fruition.
MAVERICK ARTIST VICTOR-HUGO VACA II, NY BORN FINE ARTIST, CREATES 7,000 SQUARE FOOT GRAFFITI MURAL INSIDE THE HAUNTED HALLS OF THE INFAMOUS MIAMI BEACH ADDRESS OF LEGENDARY HOT SPOTS, LIQUID AND SHOCK NIGHTCLUB, TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT THE EPIDEMIC OF ECONOMIC FRAUD AND ECONOMIC TERRORISM DESTROYING AMERICAN ECONOMY ENABLED BY WEAK INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM.
Fast forward, to February 17, 2011, when a Miami New Times article by Michael E. Miller, titled “SHOCK NIGHTCLUB OWNER SKIPS TOWN WITHOUT PAYING HIS BILLS” revealed that Julien Manival nicknamed, “The French Bernie Madoff”, had bragged to El Nuevo Herald, The Miami Herald’s Spanish language sister- publication, that he wanted his patrons’ heads to spin for days from all the special effects in his new nightclub, located at the former address of the legendary Liquid Nightclub.

Having been hired as the official artist of Shock Nightclub by Manival himself, to create, “a world-record sized fine-art-graffiti mural” at the infamous 1437-39 Washington Avenue address on South Beach, Victor-Hugo Vaca II witnessed, first hand, the corruption and dangers to public safety that existed before two separate FBI corruption investigations led to eight individuals charged and arrested in a corruption probe including Miami Beach Code Compliance Officers, Miami Beach Firefighters and a Miami Dade Police Officer.
MIAMI BEACH MAYOR, MATTI BOWER, AND MIAMI HERALD EDITORS KNEW THAT THOUSANDS OF INTERNATIONAL PARTYGOERS WERE IN CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER OF CEILING COLLAPSE AT 1437-39 WASHINGTON AVENUE, SHOCK NIGHTCLUB, FEATURING THE ARTWORK OF MAVERICK ARTIST VICTOR-HUGO VACA II, BUT NEITHER DID ANYTHING TO GAIN PUBLIC TRUST BY WARNING TRAVELERS AND CONSTITUENTS.
Mayor Matti Bower and Miami Herald Editors had photographic evidence of clear and present danger, including shocking images of a rotting second story dance floor being concealed, without permits, to withstand the weight of hundreds of trusting revelers. Every editor at the Miami Herald was alerted to the dangerous situation being perpetrated by the epidemic of economic fraud and corruption endangering the lives of unsuspecting visitors to Miami Beach and its constituents.

CBS NEWS MIAMI FILMED THE 7,000 SQUARE FOOT MODERN-ART-GONZO- JOURNALISM GRAFFITI MURAL TITLED, “FLOW”, BY MAVERICK ARTIST VICTOR-HUGO VACA II. THE MURAL CONTAINED SUBLIMINAL GRAFFITI IN SEVEN LANGUAGES AND POINTERS, FOR THE INQUISITIVE, PAINTED WITH FINE ART OIL BRUSHES, WITHIN THE LARGE WORDS, THAT TOLD A STORY OF CORRUPTION, FOR SAVVY SOCIALITES, INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISTS AND THOSE ENTRUSTED WITH PUBLIC SAFETY TO DO THEIR JOB AND CATCH THE CLUES LEADING TO THE REALIZATION OF A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER POSSIBLY EXISTING ABOVE THE HEADS OF UNSUSPECTING INTERNATIONAL LUMINARIES AND CELEBRITIES, LIKE LADY GAGA AND RICKY MARTIN, DANCING THE NIGHT AWAY, IN THE VIP SECTION, OF ONE OF THE MOST INFAMOUS CLUBS ON SOUTH BEACH.
For reasons unknown, CBS News producers never aired the footage they obtained from inside of Shock Nightclub but Jenny Scordamaglia (Miami TV, VidBloggerNation), dared to air the following segment on the first season of her show, “Off Limits”, featuring the infamous censored and stolen paintings and 7,000 square foot fine-art-graffiti mural by Maverick Artist Victor-Hugo Vaca II, intended to raise awareness about economic terrorism and the epidemic of economic fraud impacting the global economy.
After a couple of weeks, Shock Nightclub abruptly shut down. When “The French Bernie Madoff”, Julien Manival’s, checks started bouncing, the Frenchman jetted back across the Atlantic, leaving behind over $100,000 in outstanding debts and an unsafe dance floor that could collapse under pressure on hundreds of unsuspecting people.
MONEY TRUMPS PUBLIC SAFETY: THE MIAMI HERALD FAILED TO REPORT UNSAFE STRUCTURE AT THE WORLD FAMOUS, SHOCK NIGHTCLUB, FEATURING DECOR BY MAVERICK ARTIST VICTOR-HUGO VACA II.
Once money became an issue, mainstream media news outlets like, The Miami New Times, began reporting the economic fraud and money laundering taking place between Miami Beach and France. Yet, editors at The Miami Herald failed to publish the photos they had in their possession, of rotting, unsafe, elevated dance floors, in the heart of Miami Beach, where the privileged pay good money to play and party like rock stars, royalty and celebrities in venues like Shock Nightclub, with artistic decor by Florida International University Alumni, Victor-Hugo Vaca II.

The Miami Herald showed their commitment to public trust by dismissing the report. The only article published by the Miami Herald regarding Shock Nightclub was an article, that appeared in the Spanish language newspaper, El Nuevo Herald, noting the exceptional artwork and graffiti created by the New York born Hispanic artist Victor-Hugo Vaca II and heralding Julien Manival, as a nightclub impresario, creating a safe haven for elite patrons and public figures from around the world, in the heart of Miami Beach, Florida.

Fast forward again, this time to September 19, 2013 when the Pultizer Prize winning, Sun Sentinel published two stories about a high-speed chase on a winding, ocean-front, mansion-lined, two-lane road, through an exclusive residential neighborhood, without sidewalks, the day after an innocent victim was killed during another high-speed chase in the Miami Herald readership area and just days before Miriam Carey, was shot to death in D.C., with a 1-year-old girl in her car, after a high-speed car chase. The front-page articles contained quotes from the eyewitness account, of Victor-Hugo Vaca II, which were also given to Miami Herald reporters, who asked for bystander testimony.
‘THE BOOK OF LIFE PASSED ME BY AS I WALKED MY DOG’ BY VICTOR-HUGO VACA II
Neither newspaper mentioned the cavalry of black, grey and blue, unmarked SUV’s, that trembled earth, through the community, known as, “Millionaires Row”, like an endless rumbling freight train, at unsafe speeds, for over forty-five minutes, after the media reported, “two-minute” car chase, was over.
THE MIAMI HERALD REPORTS AN EARTH SHAKING, FORTY-FIVE MINUTE ONSLAUGHT OF HIGH-SPEED UNMARKED CARS RACING THROUGH “MILLIONAIRES ROW” ON A TIGHT, WINDING ROAD, AS A “TWO-MINUTE” CAR CHASE.
The Sun Sentinel Article read:
Victor-Hugo Vaca Jr. was walking his dog Romeo in front of his Hillsboro Beach home when the suspect’s vehicle and patrol cars whooshed past him like a barreling train, he said. Vaca feared for his life and first thought of Medina, he said.
“That’s the first thing that flashed in my mind. The second thing was my dog and my own safety,” he said. “I had enough time to grab his neck back with the leash before he walked into that chaos. It gave me just enough time to react.
“I felt the force of the chase coming towards me. They were coming at such a velocity and there was such a caravan of metal,” he said. “We were stuck in our tracks; we didn’t move.”
A bicyclist on the opposite side of the road jumped off his bike because he was so shaken and told Vaca how terrified he was, he said.

Roaring past pedestrians on a narrow, winding road at high speeds, for over forty-five minutes, a motorcade of unmarked law enforcement vehicles in one of the wealthiest neighborhoods on earth, recklessly endangered the lives of pets and pedestrians in the name of the law, but that’s not how The Miami Herald reported the incident, witnessed by Hillsboro Beach, Florida resident, Victor-Hugo Vaca II.

The Miami Herald made it seem like all the life threatening chaos along “Millionaires Row” ensued over a burglary suspect and never delved deeper into this curious story that begged the questions, “Why would over 60 unmarked cars race through a winding road at breakneck speeds for over forty-five minutes endangering civilians to catch a burglar? What exactly did the suspect steal in the mega-mansion neighborhood, to warrant such an extreme response, from undercover law enforcement and where did all the unmarked vehicles come from?”
