In a recent BOMBSHELL (!!!) report here at Babalu we exposed how the high-handed and irresponsible busybodies at USAID repeatedly and secretly intervened in the internal affairs of the sovereign government of P.W. Botha in South Africa, squandering millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars seeking the blatantly imperialistic goal of regime-change. But miraculously, the Associated Press […]
BABALU BLOG HAS UNCOVERED DOCUMENTS SHOWCASING THE REAGAN ADMINISTRATION'S MOST AGGRESSIVE AND INTERVENTIONIST COWBOY DIPLOMACY!!! To wit: During the 1980's the U.S. government was secretly and illegally funding secret and illegal groups in South Africa!!! The U.S. policy--as the document BOASTS!--was REGIME-CHANGE against the sovereign and legally-constituted government of South Africa!!! From the document: "U.S. […]
Thin skin and a totally atrophied sense of humor characterizes both. (De rigueur for leftists, you might say.) Former Mr Kate Perry (and current British multi-millionaire-comedian) Russell Brand devotes much of his new book and stage routine to denouncing capitalism. The book itself is titled “Revolution” and courageously confesses to the following: “I’m a big […]
Cuban-born Austin police chief Art Acevedo wants residents to rat on their neighbors who like guns: "And that’s why it’s important for us as Americans to know our neighbors, know our families- tell somebody. If you know somebody that is acting with a lot of hatred towards any particular group- especially if it’s somebody you […]
"I (Carol Thatcher) hoped to get a snap taken by one of my 15-strong cycling group standing by a wrought-iron image of the revolutionary hero Che Guevara." (Margaret Thatcher's daughter Carol on recent visit to Cuba.) From tape recordings on April 10, 1982: Cuban Ambassador to Argentina Emilio Aragones: "I want to be very clear. […]

"You DGI eavesdroppers and stalkers have been working HARD lately companeros!" (say Raul and Ramiro.) "What with all these U.S. "People-to-People" visitors! Londoño's different. He self-programs...So take a couple days off...!" Though Thanksgivings was never a Cuban holiday, the DGI dept. charged with bugging, videoing and tailing VIP U.S. visitors (especially journalists) for potential blackmail […]
British vaudeville comedian Russell Brand needs better staff. He’s touring the U.S. promoting his book “Revolution” while impishly equating Che Guevara with Jesus Christ and Gandhi. The look on Brand’s face as he looked around crowd while detonating these "devilish" observations on Jimmy Fallon was pitiful—-in the most genuine sense of the word. Brand, you […]
To lay eyes on the Berlin Wall provoked shame and horror in everyone. Here was stark and perfect proof of what divided the world at the time. No amount of paint or plaster to pretty it up could disguise what it was doing. President Reagan saw it and outspokenly called it out. Diplomatic pecksniffs be […]
