  • Anthony Bourdain “Jokes” About Poisoning President Trump

    "Anthony Bourdain, the host of “Parts Unknown” on liberal CNN, said last week that he would poison Donald Trump if the celebrity chef was asked to cater a peace summit between the President and Kim Jong Un. “Hemlock,” Bourdain simply replied when asked by TMZ what he would serve Trump and the North Korean dictator.” OK, so Bourdain was joking. Har--Har! But here’s Bourdain from an interview right after Trump’s election: “I will never eat in his (Donald Trump’s) restaurant. I have utter contempt for him, utter and complete contempt… I’m not going. I’m not going.” (Anthony Bourdain, Eater.) Gosh?...
  • Cuba mystery grows: New details on what befell US diplomats

    09/15/2017 12:44:43 AM PDT · by blueplum · 29 replies
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The blaring, grinding noise jolted the American diplomat from his bed in a Havana hotel. He moved just a few feet, and there was silence. He climbed back into bed. Inexplicably, the agonizing sound hit him again. It was as if he'd walked through some invisible wall cutting straight through his room. ...On Tuesday, the State Department disclosed that doctors had confirmed another two cases, bringing the total American victims to 21. Some have mild traumatic brain injury, known as a concussion, and others permanent hearing loss. Even the potential motive is unclear. Investigators are at a...
  • CBS Lies Through Their Teeth About Cuba’s Hurricane Irma Preparedness

    09/09/2017 6:04:40 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 48 replies ^ | September 9, 2017 | Humberto Fontova
    “Cuba normally gears up quickly for storms with constant advisories on TV and radio urging people to prepare. The Civil Defense, run by a general and the military, jumps into action to evacuate people and animals from low-lying areas, to move food supplies to higher ground, harvest crops quickly and distribute the monthly food rations to people before the storm hits.” (CBS News. Sept. 8.) In fact, as late as the night of Sept. 5th with Hurricane Irma forecast to rake the entire island of Cuba from end to end, many Cubans were completely unaware of the hurricane’s very...

    As we see in weather reports, Hurricane Irma is very close to Cuba and will likely cause significant damage. We hope for the best for the island, its neighbors, and Southern Florida. There is another storm brewing in Cuba, but you have not heard much about that one. We see this from U.S. News about what we can call an electoral storm:    Opponents of the Cuban government are putting forward an unprecedented number of candidates for municipal elections in late October, the first step in a process to select a new president after nearly 60 years of the...
  • US should rebuke Cuba/deny aid as Hurricane Irma slams into Island

    Article this is based on: US reveals details of recent 'sonic attack' on Cuba diplomats It is just my opinion, but the US should use Hurricane Irma as the 'timing' to rebuke Cuba for SONIC attacks on US Embassy employees. Maybe there should an ICING in relations. If a Communist/Totalitarian Government such as Cuba chooses to attack American Citizens/Embassy workers, there should consequences. With Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts and what will probably happen with Hurricane Irma striking Florida, US resources will be stretched thin. The US SHOULD help Mexico with Tropical Storm Katia. Mexico may need aid from the...

    Former world featherweight champion Sugar Ramos, real name Ultiminio Ramos, has died at the age of 75 after a long fight from cancer. One of the first victims of the professional boxing ban in Cuba, Ramos moved to Mexico – where he later became an idol – to escape the communist regime of Fidel Castro in 1961. Two years later he challenged Davey Moore for the WBA and WBC featherweight titles, and it is the tragic outcome of that bout that became Ramos’ unwanted claim to fame.

Previously, U.S. officials said the incidents started in December 2016 and ended this past spring. But State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert revealed Friday that a new incident occurred in August and is now part of the ongoing investigation. "We can’t rule out new cases as medical professionals...

    Don't ever change, Washington Post. Even when you get an issue really right I know I can count on you to screw it up in the end. I was impressed with the short op-ed from last Sunday's paper that was critical of Cuba. It was a mixture of the author's artwork as well as a few short passages, and with a title like "As a boy, I fled despotism in Cuba. Now I’m fighting it here in America," you know it's just itching to open a can of stupid. Edel Rodriguez starts the narrative of the childhood of a boy born in...

Following months of investigation, U.S. officials concluded that the diplomats had been exposed to an advanced device that operated...

    "Racism is evil -- and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans." (President Donald Trump, August, 14.)I now call your attention to this video of a lynching (warning, graphic.) Please note the race of the members of the firing squad as compared to the race of the (untried) victim. This communist firing squad murdered this (untried) black man on the orders of the lily-white communist Raul Castro near Santiago, Cuba on Jan. 12, 1959.Not that such Castroite lynchings...

    Add this report to the growing list of grievances the American people have against the Obama administration. Washington Free Beacon says the extent of Cuba’s ‘mystery attack’ against U.S. diplomats in Havana may have been covered up by the Obama administration. Washington Free Beacon reports: The number of U.S. government personnel targeted by a mysterious illness in Cuba last year is greater than the Trump administration has publicly acknowledged, according to multiple U.S. officials who told the Washington Free Beacon the Obama administration may have misled Congress about the full scope and nature of the attack. U.S. officials disclosed earlier...

    The two-year-old U.S. diplomatic relationship with Cuba was roiled Wednesday by what U.S. officials say was a string of bizarre incidents that left a group of American diplomats in Havana with severe hearing loss attributed to a covert sonic device. In the fall of 2016, a series of U.S. diplomats began suffering unexplained losses of hearing, according to officials with knowledge of the investigation into the case. Several of the diplomats were recent arrivals at the embassy, which reopened in 2015 as part of former President Barack Obama’s re-establishment of diplomatic relations with Cuba. Some of the diplomats’ symptoms were...

    “They saw in Castro and Che Guevara the hipster who in the era of the Organization Man had joyfully defied the system,” wrote President Kennedy’s adviser Arthur Schlesinger Jr back in 1961. Indeed, this “hipster” cachet hovers around the leaders of the Cuban Revolution and persists to this day, despite a half century of Stalinist crimes. Then thanks largely to President Obama’s recent “rapprochement” with these “hipsters,” Stalinist Cuba became the absolute “coolest” place on Earth. Last year close on the heels of Katy Perry, the Rolling Stones and the Obama family itself, Karl Lagerfeld showcased his Chanel “cruise line”...

    If someone would have told me a month ago that I'd spend my recent trip to Cuba obsessing over a missile crisis I would have told them I'm not that kind of historian. But there I was in Old Havana in early July, thinking about whether another missile crisis half way around the globe would lead to the world war that was so narrowly averted here five decades ago. Of course the missiles in question today are in North Korea, not in Cuba. But the fact that 55 years after the Cuban Missile Crisis and over a generation removed from...

    The opposition MUD is subjected to tremendous challenges, all coming from the fact that they need to face off a criminal-narco-state without any help from the outside police. Why the world is not acting on Veneuela knowing very well that it risks receiving a refugee wave of millions is the subject of another text. Never mind that if the regime manages to hold power at the cost of a dictatorial communist "constitution" and thousands of deaths this will set a bad precedent for regimes dreaming of such a perpetuation of outcome, like Bolivia, the FARC in Colombia, Nicaragua, to name...

    The legend of King Robert the Bruce, exiled from Scotland in a cave off the Irish coast in 1306, resembles a similar story in the Bible about King David when he was a boy. King Robert watched a spider finally manage to make a web after failing in several attempts. Thus the child’s rhyme: “If at first you don’t succeed, Try, try, try again.” Our Lord’s parable of the unjust judge (Luke 18:1-8) is about a poor widow who persisted in getting the judge to hear her case. The refined translation says that the judge wearied of her importuning, but...
