    At home, Julián Castro's been spending more time reading and watching television in Spanish, trying to get his speaking skills up to speed. On the job as Housing and Urban Development secretary, he's been carefully working the levers in Washington, with coaching from Bill Clinton and a twin brother who's a popular and up-and-coming congressman himself. Starting Saturday, he'll be out on the trail for Hillary Clinton in in Nevada, Iowa and Maine. He's plotted his rise carefully, studying and strategizing with a clear goal in sight.

    An inert U.S. Hellfire missile sent to Europe for training purposes was wrongly shipped from there to Cuba in 2014, said people familiar with the matter, a loss of sensitive military technology that ranks among the worst-known incidents of its kind. The unintended delivery of the missile to Cuba has confounded investigators and experts who work in a regulatory system designed to prevent precisely such equipment from falling into the wrong hands, said those familiar with the matter.

    No doubt you, too, spent the holidays relishing the humiliation of Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, the overrated and obnoxious Democratic Party hack who, finally, is teetering on the brink of political oblivion. How the former ballet dancer and Sarah Lawrence alumnus parlayed ambition and drive and the ability to scream like a lunatic into high office and a fortune of more than $10 million is one of the remarkable political stories of our time. "Emanuel has succeeded in almost every professional endeavor he has undertaken," Ryan Lizza wrote approvingly in 2009. Spoke too soon. How bad is Rahm Emanuel? He...

    Anthony Bryant was once so enamored with Fidel Castro’s revolution that he felt compelled to hijack his way to Cuba. Upon touching down at José Martí International Airport shortly before dawn, Bryant was certain that he was about to enter what he had dubbed "paradise." "Cuba was creating a true democracy - a place where everyone was equal, where violence against blacks, injustice, and racism were things of the past," Bryant would later recall thinking as he was whisked away by soldiers, whom he expected to escort him to a comfortable hotel. "I had come to Cuba to feel freedom...

For tens of thousands of Americans an equivalent story was published in the Washington Post last week by its chief Latin American reporter Nick Miroff.

    Rep. Joaqun Castro (D-Texas) has introduced the Correcting Hurtful and Alienating Names in Government Expression Act. The bill would remove the term "illegal alien" and replace it with "undocumented foreign national and keep executive branch agencies from using alien or "illegal alien" in signage and literature. "Words matter, particularly in the context of an issue as contentious as immigration," Castro said. "Discontinuing our use of the term 'alien' will help lessen the prejudice and vitriol that for too long have poisoned our nation's discussions around immigration reform," he added.

I think we have committed a crime against our people by making their standard of living so incomparably lower than that of the Americans. Yeltsin, who died in...

The closest thing, so far, to a challenge to the oppression of dissidents has been the invitation to a dissident group, The Ladies in White, to attend a cathedral service held by the pope. However, according to the U.K. Telegraph, 22 of 24 members of the group were detained by security police and could not attend. Other dissidents fared as badly: Cuban authorities prevented leading dissidents from meeting Pope Francis in Havana on Sunday, in a sign of the Communist...

Francis had expressed his "sentiments of particular respect and consideration" specifically for Fidel Castro during his first speech in Cuba on Saturday evening and their actual meeting was, in Fr. Federico Lombardi's words, "'familiar and informal," with the two speaking about "protecting the environment and the great problems of the contemporary world."...

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton mocked the anti-Castro sentiment of Miami Cubans and their influence on the political process, according to newly released State Department emails. On December 16, 2009, State Department legislative affairs staffer Richard Verma emailed Secretary of State Clinton to update her on the status of the Obama administrations pick for ambassador to Brazil. Their pick Tom Shannon was being blocked at the time by then-Republican Florida Sen. George LeMieux, who viewed Shannon as being weak on Cubas Castro regime. LeMieux was reportedly backing Charlie Crist against his tea party primary opponent Marco Rubio in a race...

    President Obama will announce Wednesday that the U.S. and Cuba have reached an agreement to open embassies in Havana and Washington, an administration official confirmed to Fox News. The announcement marks a major step in ending hostilities between the longtime foes and an opportunity to re-establish formal diplomatic relations. The U.S. and Cuba have been negotiating the reestablishment of embassies in each others capitals following the Dec. 17 announcement that they would move to restore ties.

    From his dads torture in Cuba to his experience watching hard-core porn with Justices Rehnquist and OConnor, it seems nothing is off-limits in the senators forthcoming memoir. Ted Cruz first heard about his fathers torture as a teenager, after the two of them spent the afternoon watching a Rambo movie.Torture is a tragically familiar concept in the Cruz family: Cruzs father, Rafael, had been jailed as a Cuban revolutionary in the days of Fulgencio Batista; his aunt later opposed the Castro regime, and too was physically abused. Just hours after watching Rambo endure agonizing electrical torture by Vietnamese captors, Rafael...

    Christians in Cuba received more than 83,000 Bibles earlier this month from the International Missions Board. The Bibles come at a time of growth in the evangelical church in Cuba. The Baptist Convention in Cuba is distributing the Bibles to believers in more than 1,000 churches all over the island. Bibles have not been sold in Cuban bookstores for more than 50 years.

    And that means that Marco Rubio will block any nominee for the position. In a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry, who is coming home after breaking his leg while bicycling, Rubio pledges not just to oppose any nominee but “to block the Administration’s efforts to pursue diplomatic relations with Cuba and name an Ambassador to Havana” until Barack Obama and Kerry work to wring concessions from the Castros. In particular, Rubio wants American fugitives extradited to face long-delayed justice in the US: Secondly, I urge you to make central to the current talks the repatriation of known...

    Today President Obama further opened the financial floodgates from the U.S. to the world’s most notorious deadbeat nation—who is also a “State Sponsor of Terrorism.” Quotation marks are now required around the term “State-Sponsor of Terrorism” when referring to Cuba because just this morning, as the 45 day notification period to Congress expired, President Obama officially removed Cuba from the State Department’s list of State Sponsors of Terrorism, where President Reagan had placed it in 1982. “Laughing all the way to the bank,” hardly does justice to what the multi-billionaire Castro family must be doing this week. The $7 billion...

    Politics: President Obama removed Cuba as a state sponsor of terror Friday, forgetting the dictatorship's long record of killing, smuggling and, yes, terror. If this is the new standard, why not just scrap the list entirely? The lifting of Cuba from the list of nations that support terrorism was a farce that may well come back to the haunt the United States. After all, the ruling Castro regime that benefits from it in the name of normal relations with the U.S. and new access to World Bank loans is the same regime that once tried the first 9/11, aligning itself...

    The United States took another step toward normalization of relations with Cuba on Friday, officially removing its onetime Communist foe from its official list of state sponsors of terror. The White House initiated a 45-day congressional review of Cubas status on April 14, so Fridays announcement is not a surprise. But its an important symbolic step as President Barack Obama and Cuban President Ral Castro try to thaw more than five decades of frozen diplomatic ties. Republicans long ago conceded Cuba would be removed from the list and vowed not to fight it. We cant undo it, Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen...
