  • In Venezuela, hungry child gangs use machetes to fight for ‘quality’ garbage

    As Liliana picks lice from the tangled, thick hair of her boyfriend, Patricio, while they sit together on the sidewalk of a Caracas street, she’s also multi-tasking, keeping a watchful eye on her “family.” When a 10-year-old girl named Danianyeliz kneels down to drink water from a puddle, Liliana reproaches her, urging her to have a sip from a juice bottle they’ve just found in a garbage bag. At 16, Liliana has become the mother figure for a gang of Venezuelan children and young adults called the Chacao, named after the neighborhood they’ve claimed as their territory. The 15 members,...

    “I’m the eldest of Che’s four children with my mother. Papi was known around the world as the Argentine revolutionary, a guerrilla leader and major figure of the Cuban revolution, but we were just a normal family. I never felt special as his daughter. Where I did feel special was as the child of a couple who loved each other dearly.” (Aleida Guevara in The Guardian.)Awww….You can almost hear Hollywood sniffling en masse.  Can you imagine a “respectable” newspaper giving Heinrich Himmler’s daughter a platform to sniffle over her darling papa’s domestic habits? Well, despite the half century of pinko...

We're all fighting for our justice, for our freedom, and realizing that we're in this fight together makes it all the more powerful."

    Among the many things the Irish (especially in the U.S.) are NOT infamous for is their dim-wittedness party-poopery and cowardice. (Full disclosure: my wife is Irish-American, and we’re celebrating our 40th anniversary. Consequently, my three grown offspring are half Irish. Hence my expertise on this matter.)But forget my family for a second. Let’s do the old “what’s the first word that pops into your mind” game. “Audie Murphy” (certainly NOT cowardice!) Jimmy Fallon (certainly NOT dim-wittedness!) Bill Murray (certainly NOT party-poopery!)(Please stifle the sermons, because I just love stereotyping, a.k.a known as “profiling.”)But seriously folks, Ireland celebrated the 50th anniversary of...

    A Cuban-American radio host and Irish politicians have called on An Post, Ireland’s postal service, to explain their decision to launch a €1 stamp featuring a portrait of Che Guevara by Irish artist Jim Fitzpatrick. Ninoska Perez Castellón, a prominent member of the Cuban exile community in Miami and radio host, told RTE’s "Morning Ireland" show, the stamp honoring Che Guevara would “celebrate a man who slaughtered so many people.” An Post’s plan was announced on Friday to coincide with Monday’s 50th anniversary of Che Guevara’s execution (October 9). Castellón, who works at Miami 710 Radio, said regardless of the...

    The Irish post office, An Post, is to release a stamp immortalizing Che Guevara 50 years after his death at the hands of the Bolivian Army. Long ago, Irish artist Jim Fitzpartrick created the iconic image of Guevara with his trademark cap, shaggy hair and piercing gaze transposed onto a red background. Now for the first time, it has been placed on a stamp. The word ‘Éire’, the Irish word for ‘Ireland’, declares the stamp’s origins for all who care to Google it, and it costs one euro to buy. […] Earlier this year, the Irish government issued an apology...

    It was big news three years ago when Castro more than doubled the monthly wage for doctors with two specialties, from … $26 to $67. Alas, nurses didn’t do quite as well percentage-wise. They went from $13 per month to $25. Imagine knowing you have an expertise in a profession that would let you live comfortably, if not lavishly, even in the richest country in the world and receiving a monthly wage whose equivalent value could be paid in literal peanuts without too much logistical trouble. “When you leave Cuba for the first time, you discover many things that you...

    A radical group linked to rogue billionaire George Soros has been providing scripts containing anti-Trump talking points for constituents to read aloud during congressional town hall meetings. One of the scripts distributed by the Revolutionary Love Project encourages town hall participants meeting with their member of Congress to accuse the Trump administration of – wait for it – “xenophobia, racism, and Islamophobia.” Constituents are urged to use those precise words to “forcefully condemn” President Trump’s immigration and border security initiatives, Aaron Klein reports at Breitbart News. Information about the scripts came as leaked audio from anti-Trump activists associated with the...
  • Che Guevara Banner Removed from Miami Int'l Airport

    Infamous revolutionary Che Guevara made a brief cameo at Miami International Airport, stirring up some controversy. “El Che” was included in an exhibit, sponsored by the Irish Embassy, showing off people of Irish decent that made an impact on Latin America. According to a statement from Miami International Airport, the banner was installed accidentally by a contractor hired by the Consulate General’s office. Once the Miami-Dade Aviation Department was made aware of the banner, they had it removed.k

    OAKLAND, Calif. — Last weekend, when a 27-year-old bike messenger showed up at the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va., he came ready for battle. He joined a human chain that stretched in front of Emancipation Park and linked his arms with others, blocking waves of white supremacists — some of them in full Nazi regalia — from entering. “As soon as they got close,” said the young man, who declined to give his real name and goes by Frank Sabaté after the famous Spanish anarchist, “they started swinging clubs, fists, shields. I’m not embarrassed to say that we...

    Came across an article from a few years back . . . http://www.worldaffairsjournal.org/blog/michael-j-totten/truth-about-che-guevara It lays out the entire horrific truth about Che Guevara. Here's my thought. Time to turn around the microaggression movement on the college campuses and give them a taste of their own medicine. Every time a conservative student sees a poster of Che in a dorm room, listens to a nutjob professor try to whitewash Che's legacy or something similar . . . report it to the school as a microaggression and demand removal of the offending image and request the professor to write a public apology...

    “They saw in Castro and Che Guevara the hipster who in the era of the Organization Man had joyfully defied the system,” wrote President Kennedy’s adviser Arthur Schlesinger Jr back in 1961. Indeed, this “hipster” cachet hovers around the leaders of the Cuban Revolution and persists to this day, despite a half century of Stalinist crimes. Then thanks largely to President Obama’s recent “rapprochement” with these “hipsters,” Stalinist Cuba became the absolute “coolest” place on Earth. Last year close on the heels of Katy Perry, the Rolling Stones and the Obama family itself, Karl Lagerfeld showcased his Chanel “cruise line”...

    A sordid story of hypocrisy and double standards. “A New York Times story about alleged Trump team contacts with Russian officials was “in the main not true.” (The New York Post quoting James Comey, 6/8.) Now over to the opposite end of the media’s political spectrum: "The assumption of the critics of the president, of his pursuers (especially the New York Times) …is that somewhere along the line in the last year the president had something to do with colluding with the Russians…and yet what came apart this morning was that theory," (Chris Matthews, MSNBC 6/8.) In brief, after last...

    “Mexicans are mostly a rabble of illiterate Indians.” May 10, 2017 “Mexicans are mostly a rabble of illiterate Indians. “Mexicans are mostly a rabble of illiterate indians” (Che Guevara, 1955). In the historic annals of unrequited love few cases rival the affair by Chicanos with Che Guevara. I trust Che’s iconization is sufficiently documented by U.S. Chicano groups in their murals (i.e. graffiti.)  They seem to plaster this lily white Argentinian racist’s mug on practically everything they paint to celebrate their Amerindian Aztec culture. Go figure. Perhaps a word with some Bolivian Amerindians who actually experienced Che Guevara’s plans...

    “Please, you cannot be more restrictive than the Church itself or more papists than the Pope: open the doors, do not do asses on Christian perfection, because by doing so you are promoting a hypocritical attitude.” Amid applause, Pope Francis addressed the International Catholic Action Federation (Fiac), which he received on the eve of his trip to Egypt, and recommended its leaders “not to “clericalize” the laity, to be more outgoing and willing to sacrifice, aware, he warned that this could “cause you some problems because by doing so, more people will want to join the organization even though they...

    When you think "propaganda" you immediately picture a huge statue of a dictator, or banners stamped with corny slogans. You think of the kind of clumsy brainwashing that only works on uneducated peasants. But then there are acts of propaganda that have changed the world, usually because you didn't know they were propaganda. If there was a hall of fame for such things, it would include...

Above all, Márquez is a writer. Perhaps inspired by the fresh sea air that permeates the city, Márquez wrote El Canalla (The Scoundrel): The True Story of Che, where he brings to the surface the man beneath the myth, the Argentinean behind the Latin American, and the murderer underneath the façade of a righteous man. Márquez speaks slowly and possesses the enviable vocabulary and oratory skills of man who has been immersed...

    Pope Francis chose the U.S.-Mexican border for his angriest attack yet on the free market, comparing private employers to slave owners. Pope St. John Paul II, who lived under statism, knew better. Speaking to Mexican businessmen and union officials on his final day after nearly a week in Mexico, in the heavily industrialized Ciudad Juarez across the Texas border from El Paso, the Catholic Church's Supreme Pontiff declared, "God will hold the slave drivers of our days accountable." He added that "the flow of capital cannot decide the flow of people," and blasted a "prevailing mentality" in favor of "the...

    It's no secret that many U.S. environmental groups have become more strident and ideological during the Obama residency. But you may be surprised just how extreme they have become. In early October, a national network of environmental groups - called Stop the Frack Attack (STFA) - held a summit in Colorado to discuss their campaign strategies. The STFA alliance is led by Earthworks and includes other well-known national activist groups, such as the Sierra Club, Natural Resources Defense Council and Food & Water Watch. Dozens of smaller groups, which routinely serve as the face of national groups in state- and...
