  • The 9-11 Anti-Communists Celebrate

    09/18/2021 3:36:11 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 7 replies ^ | September 18, 2021 | Humberto Fontova
    On September 11, 1973 the Chilean military led by General Augusto Pinochet slapped Fidel Castro and his Soviet mentors so smartly that his Stalinist regime (and its dutiful U.S. media minions) are still sniveling and sniffling and wiping away tears of shock, pain and humiliation. True to form, The New York Times and CNN rank among the lead snifflers. A few years ago the former published an article decrying the Chilean “tragedy” (i.e. Chile saving itself from Castroism with a military coup and shortly becoming among the richest nations in Latin America.) The latter ran an article just prior to...

    The evidence for this mystery space rock comes from a diamond-studded meteor that exploded over Sudan in 2008. NASA had spotted the 9-ton (8,200 kilograms), 13-foot (4 meters) meteor heading toward the planet well before impact, and researchers showed up in the Sudanese desert to collect an unusually rich haul of remains. Now, a new study of one of those meteorites suggests that the meteor may have broken off of a giant asteroid — one more or less the size of the dwarf planet Ceres, the largest object in the asteroid belt. The meteorite harbored an unusual suite of minerals...

    Portland’s descent into blue-haired, gender-confused madness is something new in America. The city’s criminal justice system tolerates vandalism and assaults by communist thugs, while punishing normal Americans who dare to protect themselves. Street commie antics in Washington, D.C. last weekend suggest this political rot is spreading. If we give anti-American Portlandesque district attorneys a bit more time, the scoundrels may turn a blind eye to more violent crimes as well. The arsonists are practicing. Chile provides an example of how this could go. In the early 1970s, under the Marxist president Salvador Allende, Chile’s criminal justice system began ignoring crimes...

    That Castroite Cubans not only influence the relevant power centers in socialist-destroyed Venezuela (i.e. military & secret police,) but staff and control these power centers, must be old- hat to Townhall readers by now.It’s been the catastrophic state of affairs for years by now: “Venezuela today is a country that is practically occupied by the henchmen of two international criminals, Cuba's Castro brothers,” declared Luis Miquilena who served as Hugo Chavez’s Minister of Justice for three years before finally resigning in disgust. “They (the Cubans) have introduced in Venezuela a true army of occupation. The Cubans run the maritime ports,...

    Freedom's Enemies: A collaborator of the Rosenbergs admits his previously unknown Soviet espionage more than 60 years after the fact. It's just the latest revelation that the anti-communists of that era were right. The "innocent victims" of the Red Scare were once legion — like suave U.S. envoy Alger Hiss, who doubled as a Soviet spy chief, and Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, who gave Moscow A-bomb plans. The latest debunking of this myth is Rosenberg fellow spy Morton Sobell, who finally admitted it in 2008. But in a December interview with Ronald Radosh and Steven Usdin, Sobell, 93, added that...

    Chile's extreme militant left is reorganizing around the Patriotic Front Manuel Rodriguez -- or FPMR -- but only the Communist Party seems to be noticing. Most politicians, concerned with their own pre-election internal squabbles, have ignored the process. But the communists, the only remaining legal institution of the Marxist left, paid considerable attention. The government, kept informed by the Defense Ministry, apparently preferred to turn a blind eye to the rebuilding of the FPMR. Rocking the boat would have overshadowed the tributes that it lavished on former president Salvador Allende in September as part of its of national and international...

The hit film accused the U.S. government of complicity in the disappearance and murder of a young New Yorker in the days following the 1973 military coup that toppled Chile's Marxist president, Salvador Allende, from power.</p>

    Chilean film “No” recently vaulted into international consciousness after winning the Art Cinema Award at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, for its depiction of a plebiscite in 1988, in which General Augusto Pinochet peacefully relinquished his power after 7 years and 6 months as President. The film generated a wave of international coverage, and brought the spotlight back to the administration of Pinochet, who passed away in 2006. Much of the focus of attention has placed more emphasis on his administration than the film itself. In 1976, the KGB approved “Operation TOUCAN,” as a propaganda initiative to capitalize on Pinochet’s...

    An analysis of the exhumed remains of former Chilean president Salvador Allende has confirmed that he committed suicide during the September 1973 coup against his regime that brought General Augusto Pinochet to power. Experts studying the remains of Salvador Allende concluded the former president committed suicide as soldiers involved in a 1973 coup closed in on the presidential palace, the late leader's daughter said Tuesday. "The conclusion is the same one that the Allende family had already reached," said Senator Isabel Allende. "On September 11, 1973, faced with extreme circumstances, he made the decision to take his own life instead...

    History: President Salvador Allende of Chile really did commit suicide in 1973, an inquest concluded on Tuesday. Now will the Left stop saying the U.S. and Chile's army did him in? Except perhaps for Che Guevara, no one has quite been the heroic totem to the global left than the late Marxist president of Chile, whose death in 1973 made him a martyr to socialism. Allende seemingly legitimized socialism as a democratically elected leader, the first Marxist who in 1970 didn't shoot his way to power.That gave the left hope for more. Elected with just 36% of the vote in...
  • Remains of Chile's Allende are exhumed to determine cause of death [during 1973 coup]

    (English-language translation) The remains of former Chilean President Salvador Allende were exhumed on Monday to clarify whether he committed suicide, as the most accepted version affirms, or was executed during the coup that established Augusto Pinochet's dictatorship in 1973. The act, which was ordered by Judge Mario Carroza, took place in the Allende family mausoleum at the General Cemetery in Santiago as part of an investigation that opened in February when, after almost 38 years, the causes of death of the former socialist leader amid the bombardment of the Presidential Palace on September 11, 1973 are being sought. Upon their...

    During the 1970s and 1980s, the Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA), then based in the United Methodist Building on Capitol Hill, vigorously lobbied for Nicaragua's Sandinista regime, the Cuban-style Marxist regime that shot its way to power in 1979. Today, WOLA pretends it is concerned about the rule of law in Honduras after the Honduran Congress and Supreme Court supported removing the leftist president for defying its constitution. WOLA and Jim Wallis' publication Sojourners have teamed up to spin Honduras' defense of its democracy as another example of a U.S.-supported, imperialist military coup. The constitutional coup in Honduras was...

  • Before ’73 Coup, Chile Tried to Find the Right Software for Socialism

    THE NEW YORK TIMES March 28, 2008 Santiago Journal Before ’73 Coup, Chile Tried to Find the Right Software for Socialism By ALEXEI BARRIONUEVO SANTIAGO, Chile — When military forces loyal to Gen. Augusto Pinochet staged a coup here in September 1973, they made a surprising discovery. Salvador Allende’s Socialist government had quietly embarked on a novel experiment to manage Chile’s economy using a clunky mainframe computer and a network of telex machines. The project, called Cybersyn, was the brainchild of A. Stafford Beer, a visionary Briton who employed his “cybernetic” concepts to help Mr. Allende find an alternative to...

    <p>Salvador Allende Gossens of Chile was an icon of the American left, the first Marxist to assume office via the ballot box. The CIA has been blamed for his overthrow and death, further enhancing his cult standing in Cambridge, Berkeley, and Ann Arbor. Now, 35 years after his election, a book being published today in the U.K., The Mitrokhin Archive, Volume II: the KGB and the World, reveals that Allende was in fact a KGB asset, on the payroll. The London Sunday Times published a valuable summary yesterday.</p>

    Michelle Bachelet is the current commie president of Chile who made news all week by trashing Gen. Augusto Pinochet after he died. She adamantly refused to give state recognition for Pinochet's funeral, as is customary for former Chilean presidents when they die. Before his death Bachelet was one of the main driving forces attempting to get Pinochet prosecuted for "war crimes" against the dozens of Castro-backed marxist terror cells that he stamped out during his rule. At the funeral earlier this week Pinochet's grandson Augusto Pinochet Molina, a Chilean army captain, praised his grandfather's legacy. Bachelet retaliated against Molina for...

    Allende: The Untold Story By Humberto Fontova | December 14, 2006 To read the mainstream media lately you'd think Augusto Pinochet's villainous henchmen, while twirling their pointy black moustaches and snickering maliciously, overthrew a Chilean "President" (Salvador Allende) somewhere on the order of Jimmy Carter. Then they lined up 3000 harmless sociology professors and innocent leftist parliamentarians and shot them, for the sheer heck of it. The real story, as you might imagine, is a tad more complicated—despite the media/academia Black Legend regarding Chile. Upon Stalin's death in 1953, Chilean Communists held a "Homage to Stalin" in Santiago's Baquedano...

    Pinochet tortured and murdered. His legacy is Latin America's most successful country. In the past 15 years, Chile's economy has grown at twice the regional average, and its poverty rate has been halved. It's leaving behind the developing world, where all of its neighbors remain mired. It also has a vibrant democracy... Like it or not, Mr. Pinochet had something to do with this success. To the dismay of every economic minister in Latin America, he introduced the free-market policies that produced the Chilean economic miracle -- and that not even Allende's socialist successors have dared reverse. He also accepted...

    Remembering Another 9/11 Allende's 1973 Ouster Halted Communist Rule in Chile Henry Kissinger once quipped that Chile was a dagger pointed straight at the heart of Antarctica. That quip melted in the white heat of another 9/11--Sept. 11, 1973, when the Chilean military ousted from power the first Marxist-Leninist regime to reach power via the ballot box. The revolution that put an end to the government of Salvador Allende Gossens would become the most successful in the history of Latin America. It would also become the most reviled in the annals of Latin America. Since--by comparison with other major...
