  • Democrat-Media Complex Highly Embarrassed by Anti-Socialist Uprising

    “The liberal's arm cannot strike with consistent firmness against communism -- because the liberal dimly feels that in doing so he would be somehow wounding himself," said James Burnham in his classic "Suicide of the West" in 1964. “We can get bogged down discussing all the changes by the Kennedy administration that doomed the Bay of Pigs freedom-fight, which was planned under the Eisenhower administration with President Nixon as its main booster. But the bottom line is that underlying all those changes was the American liberal’s guilt-complex.. In brief, Kennedy and his people didn’t have their hearts in a mission...
  • Apologists For Communists

    As the Cuban crisis unfolds, we are seeing an unprecedented number of protesters. Some of these dissidents could lose their lives for their bravery. A friend of mine from church, Carlos, is from Cuba. Carlos was a political prisoner for 18 months in his home country. His crime? Trying to escape Cuba. Eventually, he did get to escape. I asked him about today’s protests. He said, “62 years later — this is the first time the people arose. It’s not over. At least they’re not afraid to protest any more. At this point they have nothing to lose.” One would...
  • Student Who Fled Venezuela Exposes Fidel Castro Quote at Penn State

    There may be a different regime in Cuba now, but the murderous dictatorship of Fidel Castro is still being felt, while the people there protest for their freedom from Communism. And while it will be taken down, a quote from Castro remains at Penn State. The effort to expose and remove it was thanks to Erik Suarez, a 22-year old student there who escaped Venezuela, as Luca Miraldi with Campus Reform reported. The quote attributed to the dictator appears in the Paul Robeson Cultural Center, which according to the school website describes itself in part as: The Paul Robeson Cultural...
  • Obama-Rhodes Legacy In Shambles as Cubans March Against Communism .. Foreign policy guru attended Fidel Castro's funeral in 2016

    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....
  • January 7, 1959—A Day That Will Live in Diplomatic Infamy

    01/09/2021 6:08:34 AM PST · by Kaslin · 4 replies ^ | January 9, 2020 | Humberto Fontova
    January 7, 1959, marks a milestone in U.S. diplomatic history. Never before had the U.S. State Department extended diplomatic recognition (i.e. benediction) to a Latin American government as quickly as they bestowed this benediction on KGB satraps Fidel Castro and Che Guevara’s that day. At the time, Castro himself had yet to even enter Havana. Nothing so frantically fast had been bestowed upon “U.S.-backed” Fulgencio Batista (obligatory prefix, used in every MSM and “scholarly” mention of him) seven years earlier. “U.S.-backed” Batista had in fact been punished by a U.S. arms embargo and heavy diplomatic pressure to resign for a...

    “Sidelined NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is getting his own ice cream flavor courtesy of Ben & Jerry's," wrote CNN this week. "The company said it created the flavor to celebrate 'Kaepernick's courageous work to confront systemic oppression and to stop police violence against Black and Brown people.'" In 2016, Kaepernick's claim to fame was when he said, "I’m going to continue to stand with the people that are being oppressed. There is police brutality. People of color have been targeted by police…There’s people being murdered unjustly and not being held accountable.” While proclaiming the sentiments above, which earned him Ben...

    “We must keep our hatred (against the U.S.) alive and fan it to paroxysm!” raved Che Guevara in his Message to the Tri-Continental Conference in 1966. “The imperialist enemy must feel like a hunted animal wherever he moves. Thus we’ll destroy him! We must bring the war to the imperialist enemies’ very home, to his places of work and recreation.” (BTW, Time Magazine hails Che Guevara among its “Heroes and Icons of the Century!” alongside Anne Frank, Rosa Parks and Mother Theresa.) Fortunately on Nov. 17 1962, J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI foiled the “war” Castro and Che had planned for...

    “For 15 years of my life at the top of the Soviet bloc intelligence community, I was involved in a world-wide disinformation effort aimed at diverting attention away from the KGB’s involvement with Lee Harvey Oswald. The Kennedy assassination conspiracy was born—and it never died.” (Ion Pacepa, the highest ranking intelligence official ever to defect from the Soviet bloc.)“Of all the people I interviewed in New Orleans regarding the Kennedy assassination, Carlos Bringuier was the one I trusted most. I could see in his eyes he was always telling me the complete truth.” (Oriana Fallaci, L, Europeo, 1969.) “The skinny...

    “The future of the country is at stake in Georgia. The January runoff gives voters another opportunity to reject the socialist agenda of Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, and their far-left backers,” National Republican Senatorial Committee spokesman Nathan Brand said this week. “Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Raphael Warnock worked at a church (Harlem’s Abyssinian Baptist Church) that hosted and celebrated late Cuban dictator Fidel Castro in 1995, past news stories and Warnock's biography indicate…Warnock's campaign, though, says he was a junior member of the staff at the time Castro spoke at the church and was not a decision-maker," reports...

    “It is great to be back in the Sunshine State with so many champions for freedom, just 19 days away from a great victory all across Florida and all across America. But standing here, near the hallowed grounds of Memorial Cubano, it is my great honor, on behalf of our president, to accept the endorsement of these extraordinary heroes of the Cuban exiled community. Thank you so much. I thank you so much for the honor and for the support,” Vice President Pence at the Cuban Memorial, Oct. 15.  Far from honoring communist murder victims, Obama visited Cuba to gift the...

    “Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden likened President Trump to the late Cuban dictator Fidel Castro while speaking with Univision Orlando (Fla.) on Tuesday," Fox News reported. "'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 system.'" What could possibly provoke such a hilariously asinine comment—made even more hilarious considering it was made in a venue geared toward the Americans most personally familiar with the totalitarian rule...

    “Joe has the experience, character, and decency to bring us together and restore America’s greatness. We deserve a person with integrity and judgment, someone who is honest and fair, someone who is committed to what is best for the American people. He understands that honesty and dignity are essential traits that determine not only our vision but our actions. More than ever, that’s what we need," said Jimmy Carter endorsing Joe Biden at the DNC. And speaking of Jimmy Carter’s interpretation of “character, decency, integrity, honesty” and people whose hearts and minds are focused on “what’s best for America”:"Fidel Castro first and...

    "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...

    As some of our other writers here have already noted, there’s been quite a bit of chatter among politicos this week suggesting that California Congresswoman Karen Bass (D) may be rising near the top of the stack in the Joe Biden veepstakes. That choice would have struck me as slightly odd even without her documented record of being a cheerleader for Fidel Castro’s Cuban regime when she was younger. But with that added wrinkle in the story, Bass seemed like even less of an optimal pick. Now it looks like somebody must have slipped her a note about how...

    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...

Let’s start with President Kennedy. Just for starters, he...
