    Castro’s agents had targeted Macy’s, Gimbels, Bloomingdales, and Manhattan’s Grand Central Station with a dozen incendiary devices and 500 kilos of TNT. The holocaust was set for detonation the following week, on the day after Thanksgiving. A little perspective: For their famous March 2004 Madrid subway blasts, all 10 of them, which killed and maimed almost 2,000 people, al-Qaeda used a grand total of 100 kilos of TNT. Castro and Che’s agents planned to set off five times that amount of explosive power in the three biggest department stores on earth, all packed to suffocation and pulsing with holiday cheer...

    “The Washington Post published a gasp-inducing headline for the ages Sunday, describing ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as an "austere religious scholar. The headline read: "Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State, dies at 48." (Fox News, Oct 27.) But the WaPo quickly caved to the outrage from almost all American quarters and changed the headline to read “extremist leader of Islamic State," while issuing a groveling apology:  "Regarding our al-Baghdadi obituary, the headline should never have read that way and we changed it quickly," Washington Post Vice President of Communications Kristine Coratti Kelly whimpered to Fox...

    “This project (the 100 page “1619 Project” published by the New York Times magazine) is, above all, an attempt to set the record straight. To finally, in this 400th year, tell the truth about who we are as a people and who we are as a nation…On the 400th anniversary of this fateful moment (a ship containing slaves landing in Virginia) it is finally time to tell our story truthfully.” (The New York Times, Aug. 18th) "Out of slavery -- and the anti-black racism it required -- grew nearly everything that has truly made America exceptional: its economic might, its...

    “A national reparations policy is a moral, democratic, and economic imperative.” (Danny Glover before a House Judiciary panel, June 19.)So apparently “morality” and “democracy” are issues of enormous concern for Danny Glover, no? Well: “My heart beat faster!–This is one of the most important moments in my life!” said a hyperventilating Danny Glover while visiting the Che Guevara memorial in Santa Clara, Cuba during one of his frequent red-carpet visits to Stalinist, terror-sponsoring Cuba where he renders honor and tribute to the mass-murdering terrorist whose lifelong craving was to NUKE Glover’s homeland–and whose regime jailed and tortured the most and longest-suffering BLACK political...

    Hugo Chavez was one of the most evil socialist dictators ever. He took the richest country in Latin America, Venezuela, and turned it into a disaster of misery and poverty in only five years. How bad? The people had no food or toilet paper. And critics of Chavez were tortured and murdered. Isn't socialism wonderful? But it gets worse. Just like Fidel Castro, Chavez got filthy rich based on the misery of his own people. His family made billions. Then this evil dictator died of cancer. He turned the country over to his handpicked successor, Nicolas Maduro. Maduro ran the...

    A Washington Nationals minor league affiliate apologized Monday for a Memorial Day tribute video that appeared to show an image of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., between dictators Kim Jong Un and Fidel Castro while former President Ronald Reagan spoke of the “enemies of freedom.” Fresno Grizzlies team president, Derek Franks, told KSEE-TV playing the video was “truly an oversight.” The team also released a statement apologizing for playing the clip. “A pre-produced video from outside our front office was selected; unfortunately what was supposed to be a moving tribute ended with some misleading and offensive editing, which made a statement...

    Bernie Sanders, a front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, has long billed himself as a democratic socialist, citing the peaceful governments of Denmark and Sweden as his inspirations. But back in the 1980s, as mayor of Burlington, Vermont, Sanders often endorsed a different strain of leftist government – praising violent socialist revolutionaries as well as economic policies like forced land redistribution, according to a Fox News review of archived footage and documents. Asked about the comments today, Sanders’ campaign highlighted other aspects of the now-presidential candidate’s 1980s-era views, saying he was prescient to warn against U.S. intervention abroad. “Our foreign...

    In a major shift, The Trump administration will allow lawsuits in U.S. courts for the first time against foreign companies that use properties confiscated by Communist-ruled Cuba since Fidel Castro’s revolution.”“Major shift,” is spot on. The provision in the Helms Burton Act (i.e. codification of the “Cuba embargo”) allowing for these suits was passed with the act in 1996. But ever since, frowning, finger-wagging threats from the United Nations, European Union and the “international community” in general cowed every U.S. President into lowering his head, tucking his tail between his legs and waiving the lawsuit provision.“Good boy!” snickered Castro and...

Now 32, Matthews is still a weapon in the rush, but has slowed as evidenced by his 3.5 sacks in 16 starts in 2018. But he'll get a fresh start in a familiar place with a chance to help the reigning NFC champions get back to the Super Bowl.

    ROME, January 8, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – An article at Vatican News, in recognition of the 60th anniversary of the Cuban revolution, disappeared from the Holy See’s website just one day after it appeared on January 1. No explanation was offered for the self-censorship of the article, which marked the rise to power of Fidel Castro and his anti-clerical Marxist government, which has long been marked by grievous human rights violations. The Vatican News article, in Spanish, was titled “Cuba celebrates 60th year of the Revolution.” It read, “The historic anniversary was celebrated with an official ceremony in which the former...

Well, it's apparently trying.  Get a load of this: The Vatican News website recently paid tribute to Cuba on the 60th anniversary of the Communist revolution in a post that was quickly deleted, according to reports. The Communist island nation marked the occasion with celebrations on News [sic] Year's Day, while several leftist Latin American leaders tweeted their best wishes.

The lives of the former Cuban leader's immediate family members have always been somewhat of a secret to the outside world.   Tony Castro, who is in his 20s, managed to keep a...

The fake news headline dealt with the (utterly bogus) “battle” of Santa Clara in central Cuba where Ernesto “Che” Guevara earned much of his enduring (and totally bogus) martial fame. “Commander Che Guevara appealed to Batista troops for a truce to clear the streets of casualties,” continues the breathless The New York Times article. “Guevara turned the tide in this bloody battle and whipped a Batista force of 3,000 men!”A year later, Che’s own diaries revealed that his forces (which actually numbered...
