  • asombra: Didn’t Rousseau look pretty? Should have been a romance novelist and left it at that.

  • asombra: The Gross business was always dubious, and now it stinks like rotting fish. Whatever sympathy I had for the man is gone.

  • asombra: As for Whitehouse, he’s a classic condescending bigot. Jackass.

  • asombra: Schizophrenic? Try full of shit. A real schizophrenic has an illness he cannot help; the NYT is not even remotely that innocent....

Do we really want to tell Putin that the Monroe Doctrine is Over?

(My new American Thinker post) We hear from the Obama corner that it’s time to remove Cuba from the list of terror nations.   Has anyone told the terrorists and fugitives living on the island?   Cuba looks like “la isla bonita” for a few bad guys, such as James Kirchisk wrote this week: Cuba was originally placed […]

Castro bashes US but absolves Obama

(My new American Thinker post) The incredible “Panama show” concluded with Cuban dictator Raul Castro’s speech: Castro, in a meandering, nearly hour-long speech to the summit, ran through an exhaustive history of perceived Cuban grievances against the U.S. dating back more than a century — a vivid display of how raw passions remain over American attempts […]

Obama to the rescue: How did Raul Castro get so lucky?

A few months ago, dictator Raul Castro was wondering about the survival of the regime.  In other words, he saw Venezuela imploding and no one in the West willing to lend him any money.   (Cuba has to constantly reschedule its debts as Mexico, Canada and just about everybody else has learned) Guess who comes […]

Will Obama stand for freedom or shake Castro’s hand?

(My new American Thinker post) Back in October 1981, President Lopez-Portillo of Mexico put together a “North-South” summit in Cancún, or a meeting between industrialized and third-world nations.  It was intended to promote communications and hopefully more trade. President Reagan made it very clear to Mexico: I stay home if Castro comes! It was a clear […]

Raul Castro setting the agenda at Latin America summit

(My new American Thinker post) We opposed the U.S.-Cuba talks because nothing was demanded from the Castro regime.  Unlike previous presidents, who demanded something tangible from the regime, the Obama administration spent 18 months and agreed to nothing. We just consented to talk about the issues that have separated the two countries since the early […]
