    UFC Welterweight star Jorge Masvidal may have lost his last fight in the Octagon, but the fighting spirit is alive and well. On Friday, Masvidal called former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick a “coward” over Kaepernick’s wearing of a Fidel Castro t-shirt in 2016. Know ur history and facts cowards like this fool should be sent to live in Cuba see what they say after a day there,” Masvidal wrote on a post published to the UFC star’s Instagram. In 2016, Kaepernick wore a t-shirt depicting a meeting between Malcolm X and Castro. The phrase “Like minds think alike” was under...

    Anti-communist protests in Cuba are threatening to dismantle one of the last vestiges of former president Barack Obama's diplomatic legacy. The unrest has come as a shock to journalists and other Democrats who cheered the Obama administration's efforts to normalize U.S. relations with the communist regime. The controversial initiative, spearheaded by failed novelist Ben Rhodes, culminated in 2016 with Obama's visit to Havana, where he attended a baseball game with Cuban dictator Raúl Castro. The New York Times report on the Cuban protests opens with the following oddly worded passage: Shouting "Freedom" and other anti-government slogans, thousands of Cubans took...
  • Latina Freedom-Fighter Who Was Tortured Until Insane by Racist, Sexist Regime Dies—Did You Hear?

    No?...You mean to tell me that from the Mainstream Media (so abundant with “feminists”) you didn’t hear about this “Latina” girl who, when younger than Miley Cyrus, courageously took up arms as a guerrilla fighter against a murderous, terror-sponsoring (genuinely) Russia-colluding regime, was captured, horribly tortured in utterly dark, underground dungeons crawling with rats and roaches where she lost her baby and eventually her mind? She suffered 15 years as a political prisoner enduring horrible tortures, alongside the longest-suffering female political prisoners in modern history, in a locale absolutely infested with mainstream “news” bureaus and their intrepid “reporters” and correspondents....

    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...

    On Sunday, Fidel Castro’s ashes were buried in a cemetery on the edge of Santiago de Cuba, a city that is to Cuba what Harlem is to New York. The remains of the 90-year-old revolutionary were interred near the tomb of Jose Marti, a white journalist and poet who led Cuba’s 19th century fight for independence from Spain. Marti is considered the father of the Cuban nation. Burying Castro close to Marti is, no doubt, intended to equate the communist leader who ruled Cuba with an iron fist for 49 years to Marti, who in just 42 years of life...

Indeed, we pay tribute to those who never returned -- and, of course, also to their suffering families. In honor of this sacred day, Frontpage has deemed it important to run Jamie...

    The president of the U.N. General Assembly called Fidel Castro “one of the 20th century’s most iconic and influential leaders” at a memorial tribute Tuesday to the late commander of the Cuban revolution who led his country for nearly 50 years. Peter Thompson told the ceremony in the assembly chamber that for many people Castro “embodied the struggle of the global south for independence, justice and development.” He said Castro’s “activism in pursuit of a fairer and more just world made him a symbol of resistance and inspiration to people across the world in Latin America, Africa and beyond.” Nearly...

    Cuban dissident artist Danilo “El Sexto” Maldonado, who was detained by authorities on Saturday after mocking Fidel Castro’s death, was severely beaten, according to relatives who saw him at the detention center in Guanabacoa. “Danilo's mom saw him,” the artist’s girlfriend, Miami resident Alexandra Martinez, 24, said late Tuesday. “He was badly beaten upon entering Guanabacoa and suffered a severe asthma attack.” Authorities also confiscated his cell phone, she said. Martinez said Maldonado’s mother, Maria Victoria Machado, was allowed to visit her son at a Guanabacoa police station, on the outskirts of Havana, for the first time since he was...

    After the death of one of the world’s supreme villains, Fidel Castro, on November 25th, the left in America typically embarrassed themselves by making outrageous statements concerning the ‘career’ of a man who was an assassin, a mass murderer, a butcher, a dictator and who is no doubt sitting in Hades for eternity. Jill Stein, the defunct Green Party presidential candidate and current Soros sycophant Tweeted the following after the death of El Comandante. “Fidel Castro was a symbol of the struggle for justice in the shadow of empire. Presente!” Presente! Dr. Stein? You’re saluting the totalitarian thug? For Castro,...

    On November 8th, Fidel was doing very poorly and was sounded disoriented. However, he was aware of the election in America between his friends, The Clintons, and the patriotic American-Donald Trump. El Comandante assumed that globalizing socialist was destined to become the next US president. And so he laid down with a happy smile on his face and went to sleep. The nursing staff took over and monitored his vital signs. His family went to the other room to watch the news of the US election. When the Castro sons realized that Donald Trump had won in America they threw...

    For Immediate Release November 26, 2016 Media Contact:   "Today, the world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades. Fidel Castro’s legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights. "While Cuba remains a totalitarian island, it is my hope that today marks a move away from the horrors endured for too long, and toward a future in which the wonderful Cuban people finally live in the freedom they so richly deserve. "Though the tragedies, deaths and pain caused by Fidel Castro cannot be erased,...

    A very nice liberal broadcaster asked me earlier this week whether I am worried about the future of the Republican party. Funny question. There are 25 states in which the state legislatures and governorships are controlled by Republicans, and two states with executive/legislative divides in which there are Republican legislative majorities large enough to override a veto from the Democratic governor. Sixty-eight of the country’s 98 partisan state legislative chambers are Republican-run. There are only four states with Democratic governors and legislatures; it is true that these include one of our most populous states (California), but the majority of Americans...

    As of the year 2006, Fidel Castro, Cuba's revolutionary leader, who has died aged 90, had reportedly been the subject of no fewer than 638 assassination plots by the CIA. The Guardian newspaper notes that these had ranged from mundane bombing and shoot-'em-up schemes to more ludicrous proposals, such as one involving "a diving-suit to be prepared for him that would be infected with a fungus that would cause a chronic and debilitating skin disease". At first glance, of course, it may seem odd and overreactive that a global superpower would engage in neurotic efforts for over half of a...

    Fidel Castro's rule of nearly five decades split many a Cuban family between exile and solidarity with the communist revolution — including his own. While brother Raul was his closest confidant and successor as president, sister Juana, exiled in south Florida, called Fidel a "monster" to whom she hadn't spoken in more than four decades. Eldest son Fidelito, long Castro's only officially recognized child, was a nuclear scientist in Cuba. Eldest daughter Alina Fernandez, born from an affair with a married socialite who remained on the island decades later, blasted dad on exile radio from Miami. The sprawling Castro clan,...
