    Tuesday night at the Republican Convention, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie indicted Hillary Clinton and the Obama Administration for, among other things, their capitulation to Cuba without securing the return of Black Liberation Army (BLA) leader Joanne Chesimard. Undoubtedly many viewers asked themselves, "Who is Chesimard? How does our government allow this fugitive refugee to remain in Cuba? How many other fugitives from American justice do the Castros protect?"Joanne Chesimard is a murderer. Joanne Chesimard now calls herself Assata Shakur. Assata Shakur is a cop killer. BLA leader Assata Shakur / Joanne Chesimard, the cop killer, is the inspiration behind...

    She’s a walking parody of an unhinged leftist ‘reporter.’...But even among leftist hacks, Amanpour is a special case: It’s almost as if she’s trying to mock herself — a Trump-is-a-Clinton-plant conspiracy theory, if you will, but in the mainstream media. She referred to devout Christianity as “totalitarian” in her August 23, 2007, CNN profile “Christian Warriors.” But in 2008, she fawned over the “progress” achieved by Fidel Castro, and in 2013 she wished Zimbawean dictator Robert Mugabe a happy birthday. If a higher-profile (read: important) person had such a rich historical cache of commentary, they would have already been driven...

    Takeout food? Yeah! That's just the ticket! It's about as good excuse as consumerism to explain the economic woes of Venezuela. A few weeks ago reporter Nicholas Casey of the New York Times almost completely avoided any mention of socialism and placed the blame for Venezuela's economic woes on a vague "consumerism" during an interview on National Public Radio's Fresh Air as chronicled in Newsbusters by Clay Waters. Since that "consumerism" excuse seems to have been widely mocked, Casey went to bat with an even more laughable excuse, comparing Venezuela's economic woes to someone who has been ordering takeout food for years...

    ...Chávez was either admired as a progressive visionary who gave voice to the poor or dismissed as just another third-world buffoon. Reality was more complex than that: Chávez pioneered a new playbook for how to bask in global admiration even as he hollowed out democratic institutions on the sly.Step one was his deft manipulation of elections. Chávez realized early that, as long as he kept holding and winning elections, nobody outside Venezuela would ask too many questions about what he did with his power in the interim. And so he mastered the paradoxical art of destroying democracy one election at...

Many are skipping meals, getting by on mangoes stripped from trees - or taking matters into their own hands.

The Afghan national’s alleged terror ties were not initially flagged in a terror database – and as a result, not initially reported – when the incident first came to light last November, according to Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., who obtained Homeland Security documents on the incident. It was only later...

    The much anticipated OPEC meeting in Vienna on June 2 ended pretty much as expected: the group once again failed to put any production targets in place. Without a ceiling on output, all OPEC members will continue to produce as they see fit, leaving the oil market to sort itself out. The result was largely anticipated, given the lack of agreement at several prior meetings. However, the meeting in Vienna was not without some news. OPEC members managed to agree on several small bore issues, which could be viewed as a modest success, especially after the apparent hostility on display...

And over the weekend at least two large international airlines -- Lufthansa and LATAM -- said they will suspend service to Venezuela in the coming months due to the economic crisis. The widespread scarcities and fleeing businesses reflect a country in crisis.

Cusanno says 85% of companies in Venezuela have halted production to some extent. Venezuela's economy is spiraling into...

    Centuries ago, a native Central American people terrified of a witch believed to live deep in the earth used to sacrifice children and young women to Nicaragua's Masaya volcano. Today, the crater southwest of the capital Managua is an international tourist magnet, where photo-snapping visitors scramble among sulfurous fumes to get views of its bubbling lava—a rare sight. The only volcanoes in the world to boast lakes of incandescent magma are Masaya, Hawaii's Kilauea and Nyiragongo in the Democratic Republic of Congo, explained a Nicaraguan geographer and environmentalist, Jaime Incer.

    That much of the world (in partnership with U.S. “elites”) treats the hapless American taxpayer about like Mr Haney treated Oliver Douglas, Bernie Maddoff treated his clients and the world treats Rodney Dangerfield has become a campaign theme of enormous popularity and consequence. I think you know for which campaigner.Well, there’s one issue one which the American taxpayer can look across the oceans, touch his nose with his thumb, extend his hand, and fan his fingers while snickering “NEENER!...NEENER!...NEENER!--You SUCKERS!” You see, amigos: the taxpayers of nations from France to Spain to Germany, from South Korea to Japan and from...

    The Obama administration is secretly preparing to transfer up to 24 prisoners out of the U.S. military detention center Guantánamo Bay in Cuba by the end of the summer, the Guardian and Fox News report, citing unnamed sources. As the first news outlet to shed light on the plans, The Guardian notes that the transfer to multiple countries is expected to occur by the end of July. Currently, there are 80 prisoners detained at the Guantánamo facility, down from the 242 when President Barack Obama took office.

    I have recently heard reports on the news and read articles in newspapers and magazines concerning the current situation in Venezuela. To hear the reporters talk, the only problem is the death of Chavez. Seemingly, were the right dictator found all would be well. The most interesting thing, in all the mainstream media, I have yet to hear mention of what type of government is starving its people in Venezuela. None dare call it communism.

    Marxist Marketing Gimmick Cannot Overturn Murderous, Racist Legacy Nicolás Márquez is a lawyer, journalist, political analyst, and native resident of the coastal city of Mar Del Plata, Argentina. Above all, Márquez is a writer. Perhaps inspired by the fresh sea air that permeates the city, Márquez wrote El Canalla (The Scoundrel): The True Story of Che, where he brings to the surface the man beneath the myth, the Argentinean behind the Latin American, and the murderer underneath the façade of a righteous man. Márquez speaks slowly and possesses the enviable vocabulary and oratory skills of man who has been immersed...

    About the same time I was listening to those girls sing “Imagine,” this item came across my news feed: By morning, three newborns were already dead. The day had begun with the usual hazards: chronic shortages of antibiotics, intravenous solutions, even food. Then a blackout swept over the city, shutting down the respirators in the maternity ward. Doctors kept ailing infants alive by pumping air into their lungs by hand for hours. By nightfall, four more newborns had died. “The death of a baby is our daily bread,” said Dr. Osleidy Camejo, a surgeon in the nation’s capital, Caracas, referring...

I understand you are upset, but you can’t give the oligarchy the upper hand. It’s a matter of being united … another economy is an option, the community economy, the one stemming from small producers … do not give these racketeers (the entrepreneurs) resources. You have to wait in line with us as well, but at least in the end you don’t pay as much." The above message is...
