    The deepest and most damaging penetration of the U.S. Defense Department by an enemy agent in recent history was pulled off by a spy working for the terror-sponsoring, drug-smuggling Castro regime.   The spy’s name is Ana Belen Montes, known as "Castro’s Queen Jewel" in the intelligence community. In 2002 she was convicted of the same crimes as Ethel and Julius Rosenberg and today she serves a 25-year sentence in Federal prison. Only a plea bargain spared her from sizzling in the electric chair like the Rosenbergs. Promptly upon Montes’ conviction a Cuban spy named Gustavo Machin, who worked under...

    Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., is a staunch defender of convicted cop killer and domestic terrorist Joanne Chesimard, who just became the first woman ever to be placed on the FBI’s Most Wanted List. Chesimard, living under asylum in Cuba, also goes by her Black Panther name of Assata Shakur. She was sentenced to life in prison after being convicted by a jury of the 1979 murder of a New Jersey state trooper. Less than two years later, Chesimard escaped from prison and lived underground before surfacing in Cuba in 1984.

    The signatories expressed their 'respect for what you, as the main leader of the Cuban Revolution, have achieved for the dignity of your people'Jesuit superior general Fr Arturo Sosa allegedly signed a letter praising Cuban dictator Fidel Castro in 1989. Infovaticana says that ahead of the communist leader’s visit to Venezuela that year, nearly 1,000 “intellectuals and artists” sent him a “manifesto” welcoming him to their country. The 810th name on the list of signatories is “Arturo Sosa, S.J.,” of the Centro Gumilla, of which he was director at the time. The letter begins: “We… wish to publicly express our...
  • Who’ll Replace the Disgraced Robert E. Lee as a New Orleans Monument? Fidel Castro? Or Che Guevara?

    True to his word, New Orleans mayor Mitch Landrieu ordered the city’s monument to Jefferson Davis taken down this week.  P.G.T.  Beauregard and Robert E. Lee are next in line. But if this column’s title sounds like shameless click-bait, please note the pic at the end of this article which was taken recently at the opening ceremonies of the New Orleans Jazz Fest.  See the smiling man with the neck-tag sandwiched between smiling New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu and smiling former New Orleans Senator Mary Landrieu? That’s Jose Ramon Cabanas, the KGB-trained “ambassador” to the U.S.  from the mass-murdering, terror-sponsoring...

    On February 17, 2017, President Donald Trump created a firestorm of controversy when he tweeted that the news media (The New York Times, CNN, NBC, and many more) is not his enemy, but is the enemy of the American people. In scrutinizing the Times, in relation to the culture war and major issues within the public square, the indictment, though I have many differences with the president, rings true for me, because, the vast majority of the time, I find myself on one side of an issue and theyÂ’re on the other.And, more than that, there is an overall historical...

    “Mexicans are mostly a rabble of illiterate Indians.” May 10, 2017 “Mexicans are mostly a rabble of illiterate Indians. “Mexicans are mostly a rabble of illiterate indians” (Che Guevara, 1955). In the historic annals of unrequited love few cases rival the affair by Chicanos with Che Guevara. I trust Che’s iconization is sufficiently documented by U.S. Chicano groups in their murals (i.e. graffiti.)  They seem to plaster this lily white Argentinian racist’s mug on practically everything they paint to celebrate their Amerindian Aztec culture. Go figure. Perhaps a word with some Bolivian Amerindians who actually experienced Che Guevara’s plans...

According to its Eventbrite page (on which it asks for donations), the “important monumental trip” took place “on the 50th anniversary of Che’s assassination in Boliva [sic] by the CIA.”

I heard a big rumor while I was walking up a hill. By the time I turned back I realized it was a squadron of well, "freedom fighters." The youth of Caracas has learned to fight and to get organized. What you see is the mere tail end of one of those groups that went by me, albeit...

    There is social justice in Cuba. Nope. The dictatorship has institutionalized an apartheid between foreigners and Communist Party elites — Cuba's 1 percent — and "ordinary" Cubans. How? Through two currencies, a valuable one for the former and a worthless one for the latter, who are mostly black and brown.

    New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu cannot stomach the sight of Robert E. Lee in his city.  So one of the city’s most famous landmarks, the statue in Lee Circle in downtown New Orleans, will soon be toppled.  Mayor Landrieu refers to the towering Lee statue as an “aberration.” Historic statues of Jefferson Davis and Confederate General PGT Beauregard are also slated for imminent disgrace and demolition.  Mayor Landrieu first gave vent to his anti-Confederate-monument fetish back in 2015, declaring the monuments “public nuisances” which necessitated prompt removal.  The majority black city-council voted 6-to-1 in his favor for removal.  (Meanwhile the city’s...

    Jesus de Leon remembers clearly when his spirit finally shattered. He was 13 years old. It wasn’t an obvious wound like a broken leg, but rather a deep cut to his soul after years of indoctrination and violence that slowly warped his thinking and stole his innocence. De Leon was born in Cuba in 1966, almost a decade after Fidel Castro seized power and purged dissenters. “I was at the heart of the revolution,” de Leon said at his home in Brooklyn on March 16. “I was raised with being indoctrinated within the communist system.” From the first days of...

    OK, a lot has been going on. I cannot catch up with everything. So here follows a summary of sorts mixed with my conclusions..... FACT 1 April 19 was the nail in the coffin for street protest from chavismo. The opposition drew a GIGANTIC crowd from Eastern Caracas. Basically anyone that could make it did so....Some experts put at 3 million those who set foot on the street if anything to wave a flag as marchers went by. I will settle for two million which is A-W-E-S-O-M-E..... But that is not all, there were huge marches in many places of...

    The tweet from Governor Henrique Capriles, Venezuelan opposition leader, was loud and clear last evening. "Attention our beloved Venezuela. No one surrenders, our duty to defend CRBV (Constitition of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela) against the self-governing madurist! Tomorrow #20A ALL!" Venezuelans are coming back out on the streets today to protest against the Cuban-style Communist rule of President Nicholas Maduro. Article 332 of the constitution gives Venezuelans the right to revolt against tyranny. Peaceful protestors were confronted with government violence yesterday. As thousands converged on the main expressway in Caracas, the regime opened up with tear gas volleys designed...

    So we are in a dictatorship. And this one has made new progress to prove to the world it is so. We had Sunday a totally infamous presentation by the president Nicolas Maduro where live on TV he decided who is guilty of what and how. This based on torture. Yesterday he went further on that path convoking the militia to Caracas to stop the massive opposition protest planned for tomorrow and forcing the army to repeat once again their indefectible oath to the revolution and its heir, the dictator. As a bonus he promised to arm the militia, which...

    “Where are the planes?!” kept crackling over U.S. Navy radios exactly 56 years ago this week. The U.S. Naval armada (22 ships including the Carrier Essex loaded with deadly Skyhawk jets.) was sitting 16 miles off the southern Cuban coast near an inlet known as Bahia de Cochinos (Bay of Pigs). The question — bellowed between blasts from a Soviet artillery and tank barrage landing around him — came from commander, Jose San Roman.“Send planes or we can’t last!” San Roman kept pleading to the very fleet that escorted his men to the beachhead (and sat much closer to them...
