**Written by Doug Powers After it was reported that Jay-Z and Beyoncé traveled to Cuba to soak up some warm Havana weather and maybe get a chance to meet Jimmy Carter, even some of President Obama’s fellow Democrats, including Debbie Wasserman Schultz, were critical of the fact that somebody in the federal government gave the […]
**Written by Doug Powers Just file this one under “SickiLeaks.” In 2007, noted multi-millionaire anti-capitalist Michael Moore released “Sicko,” the film that compared an allegedly lousy US health care system to a purportedly superior Cuban health system. The UK’s Guardian reported yesterday that, according to information in a cable released by WikiLeaks, the Cuban government […]
**Posted by Doug Powers Can it be long before Raúl Castro is invited to speak before a joint session of Congress? HAVANA (AP) – Cuban lawmakers have passed a resolution denouncing Arizona’s new immigration law as “racist and xenophobic,” recalling an old dispute in the process: the argument that the United States’ purchase of Arizona […]
Yes, it’s true. The United Nations has declared misery-inducing, freedom-strangling Cuban dictator Fidel Castro a “World Hero of Solidarity.” Via David Kopel at Volokh Conspiracy, h/t Hans Bader at OpenMarket.org, who writes: The award was presented to Castro by the President of the UN General Assembly, Miguel D’Escoto Brockmann. Brockmann also successfully lobbied the Obama […]
Race-baiter Democrat Rep. Diane Watson praises Cuban health system, Castro & Guevara who “kicked out the wealthy”
“You can think whatever you want to about Fidel Castro, but he was one of the brightest leaders I have ever met.”
Old commies never die. They just keep turning up on state-run TV… Former leader Fidel Castro appeared on Sunday on Cuban television for the first time since June of last year in a video of him chatting with students from Venezuela. Castro, 83, appeared to be in good condition as he spoke with the students […]
What could be more stomach-turning than a radical animal rights group that has a snit fit over a swatted fly paying homage to a mass-murdering Marxist guerilla? Yep. PETA has teamed up with Che Guevara’s granddaughter to pimp the “vegetarian revolution.” Not going to post the photo of their new ad campaign. Click here if […]
My Good Friday column this week spotlights the religious oppression in Cuba that the Congressional Black Caucus tools of Fidel Castro choose not to see. If ignorance is bliss, the CBC members who went on tour with the tyrant are the most ecstatically happy people on the planet. And just a reminder that I’m on […]
And the award goes to…the Castro sycophants of the Congressional Black Caucus. Oh. Crikey. The aging, ailing, cigar-smoking icon Fidel Castro had three members of Congress visit with him today in Havana, which resulted in the bearded one asking, “How can we help President Obama?” In an effort to improve the relationship between Cuba and […]
Fidel Castro gives the American media two thumbs up for clueless coverage and wimpy whitewashing of the 50th anniversary of the Cuban revolution. Henry Louis Gomez at the indispensable Babalu blog (which was recently honored by the White House) provides a handy score card to help you grade the MSM’s Cuban revolution pieces. The AP […]
A group of dissident Cuban bloggers has been planning a gathering for December 6. Fidel Castro and his thugs are not happy. Over the past few weeks, Michael Moore’s dream paradise has been slowly tightening its vice grip to silence the bloggers. Over the 48 hours, two bloggers have been summoned by police. Ernesto Hernández […]
A zombie speaks.
Spread the wealth, suffer the consequences.
It means “change”, just like Obama!
“Were I to defend him, I would do his adversaries an enormous favor.”
Plus: they may release their hostages…
Up with capitalism!
Humberto Fontova writes today at Frontpage: Only one thing was missing when Fidel Castro’s 81st birthday passed on August 13: Fidel Castro. There was no appearance by the dictator, no snapshot or salutation from him in the official press, and little fanfare from the regime. A small fireworks show on Havana’s waterfront, El Malecon, was […]
How do you say “chutzpah” in Spanish?
Henry Gomez at Babalu Blog led an anti-socialist blogburst this week to counter Michael Moore’s anti-American, pro-Cuban health care crockumentary. Claudia 4 Libertad strikes back: Ask any Cuban who has recently left the island (because they can’t talk freely about this inside of Cuba) about their health care system and they will tell you that […]
Cuba is decrying the “censorship” of crockumentarian Michael Moore. Yeah, Cuba is decrying censorship: Cuba characterized American filmmaker Michael Moore as a victim of censorship and the U.S. trade embargo as it reported Friday on a U.S. Treasury Department probe of his March visit here for his upcoming health-care documentary, “Sicko.” Moore took the trip, […]
It’s Monday. Do you know where your kid’s next field trip is? The NYPost has an exclusive on a Castro-lovin’ high school teacher who whisked his students to Cuba for a spring break trip–in defiance of economic sanctions and travel restrictions, and in apparent violation of the principal’s orders.
