Swastikas: big problem. Images of Che: hey, no problem

New York Times pro-Castro bias skewered by a non-Cuban!

I saw this NYT piece this morning and decided not to post it. Too much of the same thing.  Too depressing. The NYT is at it again, lamenting the fact that all of the colossal reforms of Raul Castro are destroying the equality achieved by the so-called Revolution. Yes, the NYT has found a way […]

Venezuela headed for bankruptcy in 2015 ?

From our new Boring-But-Important department: Major lenders are now disagreeing on Venezuela's ability to pay back what it owes. Some see rising oil prices as the country's escape hatch.  Some see China coming to the rescue. But others, especially Deutsche Bank, see default as inevitable. Not paying your debts: Another page straight out of the […]

Cuban athlete seeking asylum in Netherlands says “I’m tired of being a slave”

The Castro regime's slave labor export business has suffered yet another loss.

Another dirty deal revealed in Vatican-sponsored Obama/Castro romance

Ha!  Here we go. It seems that Alan Gross was not the only hostage involved in the recent jump-start of the Obama/Castro romance.

What a funny coincidence: Tokmakjian was […]

Here we go again for the billionth time....
