    Donald J. Trump is labeled by CNN as a liar on a regular basis, while the dead communist tyrant Fidel Castro is lauded as a revolutionary hero. American reporters are in Havana, Cuba to film people crying on their way to honor a dictator who had recommended that the Soviets launch a nuclear attack on the United States. Our media never fail to demonstrate that there is no limit to how low they can sink. The sickness in the media is only matched by the pro-Castro sentiments in people like Jill Stein, the Green Party presidential candidate working with Hillary...

    French Environment Minister Segolene Royal, representing her government at a tribute for Fidel Castro in Cuba, defended the late communist leader’s human rights record on Saturday, questioning whether the regime imprisons dissidents. The former socialist presidential candidate called Castro a “monument of history” and a “symbol of a very deep friendship between Cuba and France.” […] Asked about the human rights violations denounced by the United Nations and dissidents, Royal said the island had “religious freedom” and “freedom of conscience.” …

    Justin Trudeau is one sick puppy. But he has nice hair As the entire world knows by now, the Right Honourable Justin Trudeau, prime minister of Canada, heaped praise on the late Fidel Castro, dictator of Cuba. In a release shortly after Castro’s death, Trudeau described the brutal dictator as the “longest serving president” who was dedicated to and loved the Cuban people. Offering his condolences to the vicious thug was bad enough but Trudeau expressed his sorrow not only on behalf of himself and his wife but “on behalf of all Canadians.” To right-thinking Canadians who abhor Cuba’s brutal...

    Cuban dictator Fidel Castro reportedly left behind millions in private mansions, yachts, private islands, and even a personal cheese factory. While the Castro family has imposed a mandatory nine-day mourning period over Cuba, questions remain as to who will inherit the head of state’s fortune. While fellow communists and assorted global leftist elites are using the occasion of his death to praise Fidel Castro as a hero of the poor, reports from both defectors within Castro’s world and journalists using publicly available information have estimated the Castro family fortune to be in the millions. The closest realistic number estimating Castro’s net...

    It appears former president Jimmy Carter, now 92 years old, has yet to meet a tyrant he doesn’t admire. His continuing embrace of terrorist regimes makes some wonder when we will see the cessation of his continual self-exhumations from political burial in order to once again resume his prophetic declamations on behalf of odious regimes, past and present. Carter’s latest declamation on the demise of the pitiless tyrant Fidel Castro reveals once again his lifelong empathy for totalitarian regimes: “Rosalynn and I share our sympathies with the Castro family and the Cuban people on the death of Fidel Castro.

Do they see planeloads of Venezuelans, Bolivians, and others rushing to Havana to learn how to do revolution, how to straighten up their faltering revolutions, how to, finally, do it right?

    U.S. President Barack Obama is to send a more senior representative to the funeral of Communist dictator Fidel Castro than he did to the funeral of Margaret Thatcher. Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes will attend the funeral of the anti-American firebrand along with Jeff DeLaurentis, the country’s top diplomat in Cuba, as an “unofficial delegation”. By contrast, President Obama was accused of “snubbing” the funeral of Baroness Thatcher in 2013, sending two aging former Secretaries of State to lead a delegation that included no representatives from the incumbent administration.

Half a million Cubans passed through the Gulag of Fidel Castro in Cuba.

    The third of six children, Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz was born on August 13, 1926 (although some sources claim that he was born a year later), in Cuba's eastern province of Oriente. His father, Angel, was a wealthy sugar plantation owner originally from Spain.  Raised in affluence while surrounded by poverty, Fidel Castro was educated in private Jesuit boarding schools. He attended El Colegio de Belen and pitched for the school's baseball team. After graduating in 1945, Castro entered law school at the University of Havana and immersed himself in the political climate of Cuban nationalism, anti-imperialism, and socialism. In 1947 Castro...

    The NFL’s narrative that the elections ruined their ratings took a substantial blow on Monday when the overnight numbers for NBC’s Sunday Night Football became available. Hint: they did not impress. NBC’s broadcast of the Chiefs vs. Broncos on SNF came in a staggering 27 points behind last year’s Week 12 SNF matchup featuring the Patriots and the Broncos. Sure, Patriots-Broncos makes for a more compelling watch than Chiefs-Broncos, but does not justify a thirty-point ratings difference. Not to mention the fact that the presidential election ended three weeks ago, which makes pinning the NFL’s woes on the “quadrennial silly...

At times, he claimed he made just 900 pesos ($43) a month and lived in a “fisherman’s hut” somewhere on the beach. But Castro’s public image was a carefully crafted myth, more fiction than fact. “While his people suffered, Fidel Castro lived in comfort — keeping everything, including his eight children, his many mistresses, even his wife, a secret,” wrote Juan Reinaldo Sanchez, Castro’s longtime bodyguard.

    A commentator on MSNBC referred to him as “a polarizing figure.” Indeed. At one pole we find folks blinded by their love for socialism, and at the other, those of us believing in fundamental human rights. Fidel Castro, the dictator of Cuba for more than half a century, is dead. The New York Times called him a “fiery apostle of revolution who brought the Cold War to the Western Hemisphere in 1959 and then defied the United States for nearly half a century as Cuba’s maximum leader.” Maximum leader? A euphemism at time of death is one thing, but a...

    Miami Dolphins fans mercilessly booed San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick Sunday afternoon in Miami. Kaepernick has been in the news recently after a tense exchange over the merits of recently deceased Cuban dictator Fidel Castro with a local Florida reporter. Miami, which has a large Cuban population, didn’t let Kaepernick forget about it. As he took the field the stadium broke out into an insane amount of booing.

    The Cuban government must move toward enacting greater freedoms for its people and giving Americans something in return if it wants to keep warmer U.S. relations initiated by President Barack Obama, top aides to President-elect Donald Trump said Sunday. The comments by Trump advisers Kellyanne Conway and Reince Priebus followed the death of former Cuban leader Fidel Castro. Castro’s younger brother, 85-year-old Raul Castro, took control in 2006, and later negotiated with Obama to restore diplomatic relations. Priebus, Trump’s incoming chief of staff, said Trump would “absolutely” reverse Obama’s opening to Cuba unless there is “some movement” from the Cuban...

    Pope Francis sent his condolences following the death of infamous atheist and former Cuban President Fidel Castro Saturday. “I express to you my sentiments of grief,” said Francis in a message to Castro’s brother, President Raul Castro. He noted that he grieved over the “sad news” and would pray for the former dictator. Castro died Friday night at the age of 90. He was baptized Catholic and educated by the same Jesuit order to which Francis belongs. Despite his religious upbringing, Castro was a vocal atheist and declared Cuba an atheist state when he rose to power in 1959. He...

    Castro, who died Friday night at 90, made a personal fortune offering safe haven to drug traffickers, bedded a bevy of women over the decades, and once threatened his own brother, Raul, with execution when the brother lapsed into alcoholism in the ’90s... Amazingly, most Cubans had no idea how, or even where, their secretive strongman actually lived. Even his first and second wives were kept out of the public eye — as was their leader’s two-timing. Castro cheated on his first wife, the upper-middle-class Mirta Diaz-Balart, with Natalia Revuelta. “With her green eyes, her perfect face and her natural...

    Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) slammed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Saturday for his praise of former Cuban leader Fidel Castro. Trudeau caught flak on social media after expressing "deep sorrow" for Castro, whom he called a "remarkable leader." Cruz and Rubio, who are of Cuban descent, released their own statements ripping the deceased leader. “Is this a real statement or a parody? Because if this is a real statement from the PM of Canada it is shameful & embarrassing,” Rubio tweeted, linking to Trudeau's statement on Castro's death. “Disgraceful," Cruz tweeted of Trudeau's remarks. "Why...
