    The Steamboat Institute ^ | November 2nd, 2015 | Simon Lomax
    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...

    Sen. Ted Cruz said Saturday that it is "asinine" that TV Land pulled "The Dukes of Hazzard" after widespread calls for the Confederate flag to come down. "I think the cancellation of 'The Dukes of Hazzard' is utterly asinine and an example of corporate Americas embrace of political correctness to a degree that is ridiculous," Cruz said in an interview with The Washington Post. "Im curious if the Torquemadas seeking to ban 'The Dukes of Hazzard' from our TV sets are equally exercised by all of the leftist college students with posters of Che Guevara in their college dorm rooms,"...

    With a little help from her friendly Dad (Paul) Stella McCartney has made quite a name for herself as an ultra-chic fashion designer. This week she introduced her spring line on Manhattan’s Elizabeth Street with a Cuba-themed garden party where Fidel Castro and Che Guevara featured among the main props of the cheeky soiree.The Stalinist mass-murderers featured both as mannequins and as live costumed humans who walked around posing for pictures with the ultra-chic models and guests along with the delighted (and scrupulously vegetarian) hostess. In keeping with Stella Mc Cartney’s “anti-cruelty” beliefs the event featured strictly vegetarian foodstuffs. None...

    As usual, what many “racists!” and “haters!” (i.e. normal Americans) suspected about Ferguson from the get-go proved true. Michael Brown was a serial thug, thief and a dope-fiend who –rather than meekly surrender-- attacked his would-be captor in a manner (though not context) that would have gladdened the heart of George Patton. To wit: “My men don't surrender!” General Patton harangued his fighters on June 5, 1944. “I don't want to hear of any soldier under my command being captured unless he has been hit. Even if you are hit, you can still fight back…The kind of man that I...

    I have long been reporting on Castro-ruled Cuba and, indeed, was there not long after Fidel Castro had taken over the country. What became clear, as the number of Castros political prisoners increased, was that his revolutionary Cuba was a dictatorship, like the regime he had ousted. After I wrote that, a member of his administration rebuked me for my rank ignorance. I responded by saying that he knew that if I were a Cuban in Cuba, I would be in prison. Later, at the United Nations, I was one of a number of reporters interviewing Che Guevara, the young,...

    Russell Brand and Che Guevara Have Much in Common Former Mr Kate Perry (and current British multi-millionaire-comedian) Russell Brand devotes much of his new book and stage routine to denouncing capitalism. The book itself is titled “Revolution” and courageously confesses to the following: “I’m a big fan of Castro and Che Guevara and all their beret-wearing cigar, gun-totting, cigar-chuffing pals. They were sexy, cool, tough.” Brand is reportedly worth about $9 million so this “incongruence” between what he practices and what he preaches makes him an easy foil for British conservatives, who ridicule him as a classic “champagne socialist.” Just...

Images of Ches face can be seen on t-shirts, coffee mugs, keychains, and sweatshirtsironic because he wasnt a proponent of free-markets. Students walk around their campuses wearing shirts with Ches image on it, yet they have no idea of the atrocities he committed.

As James Callaghan once put it, A lie can be halfway round The truth about Che now has its boots on. He helped free Cubans from the repressive Batista regime, only to enslave them in a totalitarian police state worst than the last. He was Fidel Castros chief executioner, a mass-murderer who in theory could have commanded any number of Latin American...

Mercedes-Benz apologises for using image of Che Guevara to promote 'revolutionary' car sharing programme (Viva la revolucion: Mercedes Benz used an iconic image of Marxist revolutionary leader Che Guevara to promote a new ride-share initiative) Che Guevara, the famous Argentinian-born revolutionary and military theorist, wore many hats including that of physician, author, and guerrilla leader. But he almost certainly never wore one with a Mercedes-Benz logo. The high-end car company, known for its impeccable - and pricey - motor vehicles, used the late leader to promote a new car-sharing program, much to the horror of Cuban...

    Updated at 7:31 p.m. ET: Ernesto Suarez, who organized the online petition calling for Mercedes Benz to withdraw the altered image of Che Guevara, says he welcomes the apology from Daimler AG, Mercedes' parent company. "I'm very satisfied with the reaction from Mercedes Benz," Suarez, a Cuban-American who lives in Kansas City, Mo., told msnbc.com Thursday evening. "I believe that they have done the right thing. "The victory, if there is one, is not mine, but belongs to the descendants of (Guevara's) victims (and) the survivors, to common sense and to civility," he said. Updated at 6:15 p.m. ET: In...

    In a video posted at The Blaze Wednesday, Fred Mason, President of the AFL-CIO in Maryland and the District of Columbia, called former Rep. Cyntia McKinney (D-GA) and Communist guerilla Che Guevara heroes. "Without a person like Cynthia McKinney, there would not have been a Barack Obama," he said while speaking at Baltimore's Union Baptist Church in late August. "And I was reminded of one of my heroes, Che Guevara, and his contribution to the Cuban Revolution," he added. According to Mason, Guevara was "an internationalist," who "was about oppressed people everywhere." "Anywhere there was suffering, he spoke out against...

    As a way to solve the national debt crisis, North Carolina Democratic Gov. Beverly Perdue recommends suspending Congressional elections for the next couple of years. I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we wont hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover, Perdue said at a rotary club event in Cary, North Carolina, according to the Raleigh News and Observer. I really hope that someone can agree with me on that. Perdue said she thinks that temporarily halting elections would allow members...

    Students Fight to Keep UCSD Landmark Open SAN DIEGO -- A group of UCSD students is fighting to keep an eccentric landmark open. "It's that one last place at UCSD that sort of exudes that college atmosphere," said Alex Peterson, UCSD student. "It sort of represents the revolutionary, liberal, young college student." The Che Cafe opened in 1980 as a co-operative run by students and volunteers. It was named after Ernesto "Che" Guevara, an Argentinian doctor who was a major figure of the Cuban revolution. It's one of the oldest structures on campus. Built in 1960, the building was turned...

    On the Friday after Thanksgiving 1962, Cuban agents planned to detonate 500 kilos of TNT inside Macy's, Gimbel's, Bloomingdale's and Manhattan's Grand Central Terminal. Che Guevara was the head of Cuba's "Foreign Liberation Department" at the time. On September 11th 2001, roughly 50,000 people worked at the World Trade Center. Macy’s alone gets roughly 50,000 shoppers on Black Friday. Castro and Che planned their Manhattan holocaust short weeks after Nikita Khrushchev foiled their plans for an even bigger one. "Say hello to my little friends!" Castro had dreamed of yelling at us in October of 1962, right before he imagined...

    <p>One day, at the height of her fame in the mid-Seventies, Jane Fonda turned up on the doorstep of her ex-husband, Roger Vadim. She was lugging a bulging sack.</p> <p>Vadims glamorous new girlfriend let her in, thrilled to meet the movie icon at last. But her excitement soon turned to disbelief. The star of Julia, Klute and The China Syndrome had come to do her laundry. Why? Because her second husband, Tom Hayden, a Left-wing activist with a bulbous nose and acne-scarred cheeks, had forbidden her to have either a washing machine or dishwasher. Far too bourgeois.</p>

    Heres Rupert Wyatt, director of the blockbuster movie Rise of the Planet of the Apes in a recent interview: (The script) had become very different and much more exciting to me. It became less a story of domesticization of a pet and more about an uprising and a Che Guevara story. Heres the Associated Press review of Rise of the Planet of the Apes: Raised much like a human child by a researcher, with help from a veterinarian, Caesar becomes a Che Guevara-style revolutionary, leading a rebellion of apes against their human oppressors.

    Let's excuse our intrepid "watchdog" MSM. They're too busy rummaging through Sarah Palin's garbage to report on the actual sayings and doings by our actual Government officials. So here's report from Britain's Guardian on a speech by Alec Ross, the U.S. State Department's "Senior Advisor on Innovation": "Dictatorships are now more vulnerable than they have ever been before," he proclaimed at the Innovate Conference in London this week. "One thesis statement I want to emphasize is how (the internet) disrupts the exercise of power...because of the devolution of power from the nation state to the individual...the Internet has become the...

    Cuba is an example of an international subject with a Texas tie-in, and particularly the Houston/Galveston area, which includes ShadeyHill Ranch, where we have a sizeable Cuban population. In fact, the guy who makes my hand-rolled cigars is Cuban. And a former colleague came to the United States with his parents in the early 60s after watching the Bay of Pigs fiasco from his apartment window. Well, last week the BBC (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-12658025) reported on the death of Alberto Granado, the guy who tooled around Latin America on a motorcycle in the 1950s with Che Guevara. That diaries kept by this...

    Last week on his show Piers Morgan Tonight, the smitten host gushed that his impromptu guest Charlie Sheen (before his complete meltdown) was "the Che Guevara of television" and "one of lifes great characters." What a wild and crazy guy, that Che Guevara! CNN was the first U.S. network Fidel Castro bestowed with a Havana Bureau, so Morgans epic stupidity might be superseded by other factors here. And Sheens meltdown has greatly accelerated since then. But Piers Morgans stupidity still presents an irresistible lure. So let's get started. . The puritan Stalinist Piers Morgan equates with Charlie Sheen initiated Cuba's...

    Among Ernesto Che Guevaras final requests before he was executed by Bolivian forces in 1967 was that a message of hope be sent back to Fidel Castro: the revolution would come to America. Che immediately became the martyr for the radical left, with his image seized by American protestors of the 1960s. Since then another, cultural, revolution has taken place. Wikipedia catalogs references to him worldwide from restaurant names, to advertising campaigns, to music, to pop culture. His image adorned an Obama Texas campaign office in 2008. Ches image is now displayed by average college students and even toddlers. No...
