The strange bed-fellowship of American “libertarians” and Castro’s Agents

The Russian media's "go-to guy," for a soft-soaping of Putin, libertarian Ron Paul. Libertarian Jeff Flake at Havana's Hotel Nacional as an honored guest of the Castro regime On right, CFR head (and traditional villain of "paleo-libertarians") David Rockefeller manifesting one of his oldest and most cherished labors of love. An extremely well-funded campaign to […]

Is “Useful Idiot” too lame a term for Mexican-born Carlos Santana?

"Mexicans are nothing but a rabble of illiterate Indians." (Che Guevara) Tomorrow is Carlos Santana's birthday. So some of his sagacities hit the news-cycle. To wit: "The 60s were a leap in human consciousness. Mahatma Gandhi, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Che Guevara, Mother Theresa - they led a revolution of conscience." A Message from […]

Hispanic Children Murdered on our Border—Media Silent

And all this desperation, death and horror to flee from a nation that experienced net immigration throughout the 20th Century, where boats and planes brought in many more people than they took out - except on vacation. (Despite what you saw in The Godfather, actually, in 1953, more Cubans vacationed in the U.S. than Americans […]

Putin Robbed Blind by Castros

We’re not accustomed to seeing Mr. Macho-Cool Vladimir Putin made an international jackass. But many Cuba-watchers snickered as the hapless Russian President met with the Castro brothers last week and “wrote off” their $32 billion debt to the Soviet Union. “That old thing? I never liked it anyway,” Cuba-watchers easily imagine Putin hissing through gritted […]

A Border Massacre of Hispanic Children the Media Ignored

Above portrait found here Maria Garcia lost her son, Juanito, her husband, brother, sister, two uncles and three cousins in the maritime massacre. In all, 37 people drowned, 11 of them children. Carlos Anaya was 3 when he drowned, Yisel Alvarez 4. Helen Martinez was 6 months old. And all this death and horror to […]

When ‘Latino’ Parents Accompanied Their Children to the US Border and Both Were Massacred by Communists

No ethnic group in the U.S. matches Cuban-Americans in their rejection of the Democratic party. This might explain why most of you, amigos, have probably never heard of this atrocity against “Hispanics” attempting to enter the U.S. Today marks the 20th anniversary of the Communist massacre. You know it’s bad (or good, depending on your […]

“The Embargo is Putin’s Best Friend,” (brace for new mantra from Castro’s agents, on the payroll and off)

"HAVANA — President Vladimir Putin pledged to help revive Cuba's struggling offshore oil exploration at the start of a six-day tour of Latin America as Russia aims to reassert its influence on the communist-ruled island. Putin also promised to reinvest $3.5 billion of Cuban debt with Russia into development projects on the island, part of […]

The Latino Child Eric Holder Booted Back Home

Given that The Godfather II ranks as the top educational source on Cuba in America. Let's use it to educate Americans on what happened during the Elian circus/tragedy, primarily on why Papa Juan Miguel--whoops!-- suddenly pulled a 360 and began requesting Elian's return to Cuba... ...Then on Dec 5th, 1999, Castro clapped his hands. Instantly […]

Remember When Democrats Booted Parentless Hispanic Children From US Borders?

Attorney General Eric Holder could hardly contain his tears when he explained his program titled “Justice AmeriCorps” to provide emergency legal representation for the tens of thousands of Central American minors illegally swarming through our southern border. “How we treat those in need, particularly young people who must appear in immigration proceedings, many of whom […]

For the New York Times, it’s still the Old Flame: Castro!

“To our American friend Herbert Matthews with gratitude. Without your help, and without the help of the New York Times, the Revolution in Cuba would never have been.” (a beaming Fidel Castro decorating Herbert Matthews with a medal during a visit to the New York Times offices in April 1959.) Question: When will the New […]

None dare call it Schizophrenia (by the liberal media over Menendez scandal)

As expected the liberal media is rallying to the defense of liberal Democratic senator Robert Menendez against his (apparent) smearing by the conservative The Daily Caller. The liberal media from Slate to the Washington Post to CNN to the Huffington Post are (quite justifiably) dumping all over the conservative The Daily Caller for apparently falling […]

Is Venezuela ready for the Che Guevara treatment? (Orlando Borrego’s Bloody Past)

We're reading how Nicolas Maduro's new Cuban advisor Orlando Borrego was Che Guevara's "friend." In fact, according to most of his former associates (the ones in exile, anyway) the psychotic Che Guevara was incapable of any relationship properly describable as friendship. "Orlando Borrego has joined a task force, together with Planning Minister Ricardo Menéndez, Jesús […]

A refugee family’s first Fourth of July

My father was one of Castro’s tens of thousands of political prisoners at the time, wondering when his turn would come at the paredon. My mother wondered too, but she didn’t have much time to indulge in things like despair. She was alone in a strange country, a penniless and friendless political refugee, with three […]

NPR’s “hard-hitting, investigative reporters” do Cuba…

"OK. Now read it back to me, NPR....Perfect! Now go make some coffee...then another shoulder rub. I feel a little stiff." “Everything within the Revolution, nothing outside of it.” (Fidel Castro speech, June, 1961.) “Everything within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state.” (Benito Mussolini, Doctrine of Fascism, 1932.) In his famous […]

You KNEW it was coming (from Google Chairman Schmidt after his Cuba visit)

You knew it was coming because Castro's secret police knew he'd say it--otherwise he woulda never been allowed to visit the Stalinist fiefdom. "The 'blockade' makes absolutely no sense to US interests (declared Schmidt.) If you wish the country to modernize, the best way to do this is to empower the citizens with smart phones […]
