  • OmarD: Dittos. Your letter brought back many childhood memories of the now extinct Grapeland Heights Branch Library.

  • FaustaR: A total sot. And how awful. considering his son Guillaume’s tragic life. OTOH, who knew GD has the gastric & bladder...

  • asombra: Norway has oil, but not as much as Venezuela, and it’s doing GREAT. Do the math.

Dear Jorge Ramos: I’m not impressed with your tweets of outrage

(My new American Thinker post) President Obama said that he will act on immigration reform after the elections.  I guess that he finally got the memo that a lot of Democrats in red states do not want any more Obama burdens to carry around or reasons to stay away when the President is in town. Some are […]

WE NEED MORE LEADERS LIKE SENATOR BOB MENENDEZ

Following declarations from Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) clearly show why he is a breath of fresh air in foreign policy discussions. He is one of those rare politicians who calls a spade a spade – regardless of the political ramifications. Here he is telling CNN Anchor Candy Crowley on August 31, 2014, what the U.S. […]

Walesa saw US leadership and does not see it now

Former President Walesa of Poland spoke for millions around the world. This is what he said: "Speaking to The Associated Press Friday, Walesa said the ‘‘world is disorganized and the superpower is not taking the lead.’’ The former Solidarity leader said that when he meets Obama in Warsaw, he wants to tell him that the […]

Russia in Latin America?

Who would have believed this the day that the USSR fell in 1992? According to The HIll, Russia is looking to Latin America for alliances: "Russia’s defense minister says the country is planning bases in Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua, and just last week, Putin’s national security team met to discuss increasing military ties in the […]

An update about Venezuela and Latin America

We spoke with Fausta Wertz, editor of Fausta's Blog, about the situation in Venezuela. Fausta published a new post called "The left and reality": "Lefties firmly believe the deceased Hugo Chavez “improved the economy drastically and ameliorated poverty drastically” because GDP went up, and fewer people were living below the poverty line by the time […]

El Salvador: “Que pasa despues que cuenten los votos”?

We looked at the elections in El Salvador with Miguel Portillo-Cuadra and Fausta Wertz, the editor of Fausta's Blog...... The question on the table is simple:  What happens after they count votes?

CPAC 2014: Cruz and Rubio

Yesterday's speeches by Sen. Ted Cruz and Sen. Marco Rubio at the 2014 CPAC were good, strong, fearless, and inspiring... More outstanding CPAC videos: The Honorable John Bolton Mark Levin's “Andrew Breitbart Defender of the First Amendment” Award

What if Obama had supported the protesters in Venezuela?

(This is my post at American Thinker) Once again, President Obama has missed a chance to put the US with the people of a country rebelling against a corrupt regime. Remember Iran in 2009?  Remember when Iranians took to the streets to protest a corrupt election?  President Obama stood silent and watched the regime commit atrocities. […]

Cuba today: “Los Castros no quieren cambio”

(This is my new Cuba post over at American Thinker) We've seen this movie many times before.  It starts with a country giving Cuba a line of credit or going around the US embargo.  It is followed by high expectations that Cuba will change once Cubans in the island greet foreign tourists or Spaniards build […]

Dear President Obama: “Tu nuevo embajador a la Argentina nunca ha visitado Argentina”

(This is my American Thinker post about our new ambassador to Argentina.) Let's be fair and admit that ambassadorships are often handed out to friends of the president.   So I will cut President Obama some slack if he chooses a political friend to fill an ambassador's post. But not Argentina. Not today's Argentina. Senator […]

“No me digas”: The Obama Care website “habla Spanglish”!

Why is anyone surprised?   The Spanish Obama Care website is a mess! The Obama Care website is frustrating Spanish speakers: "The site, CuidadoDeSalud.gov, launched more than two months late. A Web page with Spanish instructions linked users to an English form. And the translations were so clunky and full of grammatical mistakes that critics […]
