  • When Fake News Becomes Fake History – the Cuban Missile Crisis, 58 Years Ago This Week

    President Kennedy “employed a combination of toughness, nerve and wisdom, so brilliantly controlled, so matchlessly calibrated that it dazzled the world!” (Democrat court historian and Kennedy presidential aide Arthur Schlesinger, in his media-acclaimed and Pulitzer Prize winning, A Thousand Days.) "Follow Kennedy's Lead to Deter North Korea. It's Time For Real Deterrence," wrote the late Charles Krauthammer in 2006, contrasting President Bush’s wimpy response to North Korea’s missiles to Kennedy’s testicular cowing of the Russians during the Cuban Missile Crisis.  National Review’s Andrew McCarthy said "hear-hear" to Krauthammer. "It would be better for President Bush to emulate the Kennedy strategy"...
  • 1967: Ernesto “Che” Guevara

    10/09/2020 2:18:04 PM PDT · by CheshireTheCat · 45 replies ^ | October 9, 2008 | Headsman
    As of 1:10 p.m. Bolivia time this date in 1967, Ernesto “Che” Guevara was no longer a man: he was only a god. The Argentinian-born doctor turned Cuban revolutionary icon and the man who wrote the book on guerrilla warfare had put abroad to foment insurgency. His efforts in the Congo foundered; his bid to replicate the Cuban revolution in Bolivia was doing likewise when he was captured. After holding him overnight, the government sent a coded order to execute him in the field. Che had done the same thing with his own hands to several who betrayed the Sierra...

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden likened President Trump to the late Cuban dictator Fidel Castro while speaking with Univision Orlando on Tuesday. Trump has accused Biden of being a tool of the far left, claiming Democrats are pushing socialist ideas, but the former vice president turned that comparison around in an interview with the Spanish language outlet. "Trump has more in common with Castro than with Churchill," Biden said, adding, "Look who he admires. He admires Putin, he admires Xi, he admires everyone who behaves in an authoritarian way. I am the exact opposite. I have faith in the democratic...

    "Today, I requested that the Department of Transportation suspend private charter flights to all Cuban airports, including Havana,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo released in a statement Thursday. “This Administration will continue to target and cut the revenue the Cuban government earns from landing fees, stays in regime-owned hotels, and other travel-related income…The Cuban military and intelligence services own and operate the great majority of hotels and tourism infrastructure in Cuba.” For the record, the late Stalinist dictator’s birthday was August 13th. But fear not! The Castro regime and its mainstream media propaganda auxiliaries instantly got to the bottom of...

    Well whoopdee-doo! Because the marvel comes when a prominent Democrat says UN-nice things about the Stalinist, mass-murderer and terror-sponsor whose lifelong obsession was the destruction of the U.S. The sensation comes when one of those “diversity” and “civil rights” obsessed Democrats slips-up and slams the regime that jailed and tortured the most and longest-suffering black, gay and female political prisoners in the modern history of the Western Hemisphere.  We’ve often reviewed Democrat love notes to Fidel Castro here at Townhall, but just for fun, stand back while I whip out a few as reminders, and to keep this Karen Bass thing...

    California Congresswoman Karen Bass (D) is reportedly in the race to be Joe Biden's running mate. Bass was born both black and a woman, Biden's criteria for picking the person one heartbeat away from the presidency. Biden's affirmative action policy has the finalists doing some last-minute scrambling to get on the ticket. Rep. Bass was on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace where she was forced to address comments she made in 2016 mourning the death of communist dictator Fidel Castro. "As Cuba begins nine days of mourning, I wish to express my condolences to the Cuban people and the...

    Rep. Karen Bass on Sunday walked back 2016 comments praising Cuban leader Fidel Castro, as scrutiny of her views toward the Communist government threatened her potential selection as former Vice President Joe Biden's running mate. On “Fox News Sunday,“ the California Democrat faced questions about several visits to Cuba in the 1970s and a statement she released after Castro's 2016 death saying, "the passing of the Comandante en Jefe is a great loss to the people of Cuba.” Bass told Fox host Chris Wallace that her perspective "developed over time" and that she now understood that the Castro government "was...

    Rep. Karen Bass, a possible top-tier contender to be Joe Biden's running mate has had to row back on remarks she made in 2010 where she was heard praising the Church of Scientology. On Friday, video emerged of an event from 2010 at which the California Democrat spoke at a ceremony for a renovated Scientology Church in Los Angeles. During her remarks, while calling for peopel to treat one another with respect and fight oppression, she also spoke highly of the Church's controversial founder, L. Ron Hubbard.

    What is it about radical leftists and their love affair with murderous thugs like Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez? Is it that they’re virulently anti-American or is it a secret admiration for murdering their political opponents? Rep. Karen Bass is a non-descript, non-entity in the House, not known for pushing any important legislation. But Joe Biden has recently put her in the limelight by apparently considering her for the second spot on the Democratic ticket. Her qualifications include the fact that she’s a woman and she’s black. That should be enough these days to put her close to the top...

    "We are feeling many things as we awaken to a world without Fidel Castro,” reads an official Black Lives Matter eulogy for Fidel Castro upon his death. “There is an overwhelming sense of loss…we are particularly grateful to Fidel for holding Mama Assata Shakur, who continues to inspire us…As Fidel ascends to the realm of the ancestors, we summon his guidance, strength, and power as we recommit ourselves to the struggle for universal freedom. Fidel Vive!”  “War with the U.S. is my true destiny!” Fidel Castro wrote to a fellow KGB-handled Cuban comrade in April 1958. This was at a time...

    During a virtual town hall meeting emceed by comedian Don Cheadle, former Vice-President Joe Biden predicted he would “beat Trump by the largest margin in American history.” He says he reached this conclusion “via an analysis of trends. Back in 2016 Secretary Clinton pointed out that half of Trump’s supporters are deplorables. My current estimate is that 10% to 15% of Americans are just not very good people. To my mind, this shows that, at best, Trump might get 20% to 30% of the vote. That would make him the biggest loser in our presidential election history.” Signs that Biden...

    Great comparison. By now everyone knows that Bernie Sanders denied he is a communist. Well, 54 years ago so did Castro on Meet The Press. This is a short 20 second video clip of both Sanders denying he is communist, and then Castro denying it back in 1965. Castro & Sanders Both Deny They Are Communists If Communism is so great, why do those promoting and running it deny they are communist?

    Miami will hold an “anti-Communist” concert in April in response to Democratic presidential front-runner Sen. Bernie Sanders’ defense of Fidel Castro’s authoritarian regime in Cuba, according to a report. “Our city represents the stories of countless individuals who have risked their lives to flee communism,” Mayor Francis Suarez said, mentioning Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela, the Miami Herald reported on Monday. “Each and every life that has fled communism has proven how the will to pursue democracy and freedom, even in the face of oppression, can never be suppressed or silenced.” (Snip - More at link)
