    MEXICO CITY (AP) — The government of Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega has authorized Russian troops, planes and ships to deploy to Nicaragua for purposes of training, law enforcement or emergency response. In a decree published this week, and confirmed by Russia on Thursday, Ortega will allow Russian troops to carry out law enforcement duties, “humanitarian aid, rescue and search missions in emergencies or natural disasters.” The Nicaraguan government also authorized the presence of small contingents of Russian troops for “exchange of experiences and training.” Russia’s foreign ministry spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, told the Russian news outlet Sputnik that the measure was...

    Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Monday his government was introducing new legislation to implement a "national freeze" on handgun ownership and prevent people from buying and selling handguns anywhere in the country. "The day this legislation goes into effect it will no longer be possible to buy, sell, transfer or import handguns in Canada," Trudeau told reporters. If passed, the freeze on handguns is expected to come into force in the autumn. Canada's public safety minister has tabled regulatory amendments in parliament to ensure it can be implemented swiftly, according to a ministry statement.

    “This week, White House officials announced steps to move away from the “maximum pressure” approach of sanctions and diplomatic isolation toward Cuba and Venezuela that was a centerpiece of former President Donald Trump’s Latin America strategy,” (italics mine) reports Foreign Policy ….”The new policies include allowing increased U.S. remittance flows and select U.S. travel to the island.” "I think we've seen this song before… This is going to increase the amount of money that's going to the dictatorship."

    One of the weirdest tropes on the Left these days is the claim that freedom from government control is really fascism. Yesterday a reporter tried that theory out on Ron DeSantis, quoting a couple of Democrats who equated his Florida “regime” with totalitarian dictators like Fidel Castro. Big mistake:
  • Democrats Borrow Castro Slogan for Their Outreach to Latino Voters

    PJ Media ^ | 05/14/2022 | Chris Queen
    It’s no secret that the Democrats are in trouble with Latino voters in the run-up to the midterm elections. Polling from last month showed that the president’s approval ratings are at their lowest among Hispanic voters. The Democrats’ border crisis, their leftward shift on cultural issues, and the economy have all prompted Latino voters to break toward the GOP. The Democrats are aware of their issues with Latinos, and they’ve launched a new strategy to reach them. There’s one problem: the slogan. This new initiative to reach out to Spanish-speaking voters uses the slogan “Adelante,” which means “onward” or “forward.”...
  • The Bay of Pigs Epilogue: Humiliating Che Guevara and John Kerry

    “Those Cuban-CIA men (Bay of Pigs vets) were as tough, dedicated and impetuous a group of soldiers as I’ve ever had the honor of commanding,” wrote legendary anti-communist mercenary “Mad Mike” Hoare, commander of the “Wild Geese,” in his book Congo Mercenary. ''This is the history of a failure,'' said the oddly frank opening lines of Che Guevara’s Congo Dairies. “I stood above Che Guevara, my boots near his head, just as Che had once stood over my dear friend and fellow 2506 Brigade member, Nestor Pino. ‘We're going to kill you all," Che said to Pino.’ Now, the situation...

    Several observers have pointed out the terrible optics and even worse legal and cultural implications of the FBI’s raids earlier this month on three undercover journalists’ homes. Since the reporters’ organization, Project Veritas, is a political opponent of the American regime, the raids echo government behavior in unfree countries such as Russia, China, and Turkey.Yet there’s another, less remarked, aspect to this story. It’s the raids’ effect of protecting a longtime, top-tier deep state information operations partner, The New York Times.Project Veritas is a threat to The New York Times, not only in some of its undercover reporting about Times...

    Justin Trudeau has faced criticism after he was photographed on Monday wearing a mask for Labour’s leader Keir Starmer and other political dignitaries but opted not to wear one while meeting 95-year-old Queen Elizabeth II. The Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, 50, decided to wear a mask when meeting the head of Britain’s socialist Labour Party, Sir Keir Starmer, 59, despite both gentlemen not being classified as an at-risk group in regards to developing severe coronavirus symptoms upon contracting the virus.

    It shouldn’t come as a surprise that globalist tyrant Justin Trudeau feels comfortable admitting that one of the countries he most admires is China. It’s clear he loves power, styles himself as an elite not worthy of interacting with the peasantry, and despises anyone who disagrees with him. In a newly rediscovered video, Trudeau addresses a room of friendlies about banal leftist talking points. However, he takes it a step further when asked what country he admired and why. Did he mention his neighbors to the south? His neighbors and nominal figureheads across the pond? Anyone that values freedom? No,...

    Entrepreneur Elon Musk mocked Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Sunday for dismissing the “Freedom Convoy” of truckers against vaccine mandates as a “fringe minority.” The convoy rolled into Ottawa for a protest attended by tens of thousands of people on Saturday. Demonstrators mocked Trudeau, called for him to step down, and demanded and end to Canadian COVID-19 vaccine mandates. Videos online of the protest showed thousands of people marching through Ottawa in support of the truckers. “It would appear that the so-called ‘fringe minority’ is actually the government,” Musk tweeted on Sunday, reacting to video of the protest. “Protesting...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Kamala Harris will travel to Honduras next week to attend the inauguration of President-elect Xiomara Castro, the Central American country’s first female president. Castro, the leftist opposition party candidate, won out over the country’s ruling party in November. She will be inaugurated Jan. 27. She is the former first lady and her husband, José Manuel Zelaya was ousted by the army in a coup in 2009. She rode a wave of popular discontent with 12 years of National Party governance, which peaked in former President Juan Orlando Hernández’s second term.

    The United States Mint has started distributing quarters featuring the image of Maya Angelou , making the poet and activist the first (b)lack woman to appear on US currency. “Each time we redesign our currency, we have the chance to say something about our country, what we value and how we’ve progressed as a society,” US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said. Angelou is depicted with outstretched arms on the quarter. Behind her are a bird in flight and a rising sun, images inspired by her poetry.

    The Communist Party organized multiple mass assemblies, including one apparently mimicking the practices of anti-regime protesters, throughout this week to honor the memory of dictator Fidel Castro on the five-year anniversary of his much-anticipated death. Hours of speeches, military assemblies, lines of “mourners” assembled at his tomb, and a night time candlelight vigil formed just part of the program of events organized by the Party, still controlled by the Castro family, between Tuesday and Thursday. Local independent journalists reported a marked “lack in popular enthusiasm” over the events that the regime tried to drown out by placing megaphones on street...

    Here in the capital city of France, so many people here have a tough time believing that the version of President John F. Kennedy's assassination set in stone by the Warren Commission -- the one concluding that assassin Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone when he fired a bullet with a debatable trajectory into a sitting American president from the sixth-floor window of the Texas School Book Depository 58 years ago. All you really need to know about French skepticism of official government narratives is that this is the country whose citizens still vividly recall the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in Ukraine...
