    EDITOR'S NOTE: The opinions expressed in the following conversation are those of the book's author and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of LifeSiteNews. September 1, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Journalist Maike Hickson conducted an interview with author George Neumayr on his new book, The Political Pope. Neumayr offers insights into communist influences on Pope Francis.  Maike Hickson: Throughout your book, you make references to Pope Francis' relationship with communism or with certain communists in particular. Could you describe for us in general his attitude toward communism? George Neumayr: He tends to speak of communism in benign terms. He told the Italian press that he wasn't "offended"...
  • De Blasio apologizes for quoting Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara in Miami

    The eyes of the world are on this airport, the eyes of the world are on Miami-Dade,” de Blasio told the workers, before ending with, “Hasta la victoria, siempre.” The phrase translates to “Ever on to victory!” and was a mantra for Guevara, one of Fidel Castro’s top lieutenants. That did not sit well in Miami, a hub for anti-Castro Cuban exiles. Local politicians, including Florida state Sen. Jose Javier Rodríguez, called on Hizzoner to apologize. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio also ripped de Blasio for the bone headed choice of phrase. “I did not know the phrase I used in...

    New York Mayor Bill de Blasio became the latest presidential candidate to flash a little espańol this week when during a political rally Thursday he pulled out a Spanish phrase he thought might motivate workers striking at Miami International Airport. But instead of endearing himself to South Florida’s Hispanic diaspora, an apparently unwitting de Blasio uttered a revolutionary rallying cry deeply associated with Fidel Castro’s Communist revolution and a man viewed by hundreds of thousands of Cuban exiles view as a sociopath and mass murderer. In a gaffe that would force him to apologize, de Blasio quoted notorious Argentine revolutionary...

    “Royal family snub President Trump during UK visit: Prince Charles and Prince William were unwilling to meet Donald Trump on his visit to Britain, leaving the Queen to greet the US president alone.” (London Times, July 18, 2018.)Well, what could be more fitting than British royals snubbing the upstart leader of an upstart former British colony—and one who was elected by “deplorables” to boot? On the other hand, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla, not only rank as the first British Royals to grace Bolshevik Cuba with a visit—but this week (aping President Obama three years ago) posed for a photo in...

    A group of conservative street artists hijacked a billboard in Hollywood on Friday morning and took aim at CNN, which so happened to be across the street. Known as The Faction, their latest project slammed CNN and its president Jeff Zucker for its coverage of this week’s summit in Hanoi, Vietnam between President Donald Trump and North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un. The billboard, which referred to CNN as “Communist News Network,” dawned the phrase “Keep Korea divided” with an asterisk that read “because OrangeManBad.” It also featured an image of Jeff Zucker, whose title was “CEO, CNNPC,” a reference...

    “One Thousand Killed in 5 days of Fierce Street Fighting!” read a New York Times headline on Jan 4, 1959. The fake news headline dealt with the (utterly bogus) “battle” of Santa Clara in central Cuba where Ernesto “Che” Guevara earned much of his enduring (and totally bogus) martial fame. “Commander Che Guevara appealed to Batista troops for a truce to clear the streets of casualties,” continues the breathless The New York Times article. “Guevara turned the tide in this bloody battle and whipped a Batista force of 3,000 men!”A year later, Che’s own diaries revealed that his forces (which actually numbered...

Problem is, this same Johnny Depp has made a career of idolizing the mass- murderer and war-monger Ernesto...

    Important note: this terror plot to murder thousands of American holiday shoppers was planned  by essentially the same Stalinist terror-sponsors who rule Cuba today and who receive an estimated $4 billion annually from the U.S.-- thanks mostly to Obama’s executive orders that loopholed the “Cuban embargo” half to death. For his transition team, President-elect Trump has just appointed a former Treasury Dept. official who probably ranks as the most knowledgeable American on how horribly the letter of U.S. law [the Cuban embargo] has been violated by Obama in his “opening” to the terror-sponsoring Castro regime. Consequently, nobody is better...

    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...

    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...
