    Which is a fancy way of saying what's really going on - Cuba is a tourist hellhole. The service stinks, the amenities are gross, the place is thick with thieves and woman-gropers, the cost is high and the alternatives are out there, In fact, the Caribbean is loaded with pleasant, accommodating destinations well worth a tourist's dollar for a vacation. Taking a vacation at a communist military-run resort really falls more into the Gulag category. How is this for tourist hell? Observers noticed Cuban customs officials rummaging through tourist luggage and taking what they wanted. When they complained, they were...

    Membership in the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) has tripled since Donald Trump’s election in November to over 19,000 paying members, a report from the Los Angeles Times reveals. The group, founded in 1982, is now the largest socialist organization in the United States and recently published a “Resistance Rising” strategy to combat the Trump administration. “On November 8, voters in the United States narrowly elected an openly racist, misogynist and nativist candidate for president,” the organization’s website reads. “We must understand ‘Trumpism’ as a cross-class white nativist alliance; the median family income of the 62 percent of white voters...

    Not to be overly dramatic, but a civil war has begun in America. Everyone knows it to be true, but no one knows what comes next. The conflict of visions between freethinkers and the socialists who believe government should hammer humanity into model citizens has reached what divorce lawyers call “irreconcilable differences.” Evidence of the hostilities is abundant. Starting with the daily exchange of conflicting, angry “news” stories pandering only to viewers on one side of the great divide. These stories offer no conciliatory or constructive narratives, just animus, angst, and cold anger. As with the first US Civil War,...

    Investigations by Breitbart News into the global network run by George Soros have contributed to the negative atmosphere the billionaire has been facing in Europe, Politico reported on Tuesday. The news outlet (Hungarian Law Targets Soros, Foreign-Backed NGOs) reported the Hungarian government’s move to minimize the influence of Soros’s Open Society Foundations and other foreign-funded non-governmental organizations, or NGO’s, is being “seemingly buoyed by U.S. President Donald Trump’s election victory and the ascendance of the alt-right in Washington.” Politico reported on the role of Breitbart News in exposing Soros, falsely labeling the news agency an “alt-right website.” Breitbart News, recently...

    Are the elements of the former Obama administration orchestrating another civil war? Former Attorney General issued a video on behalf of Senate Democrats urging Americans to resist in the time of “fear and uncertainty for so many people.” Lynch lamented “our rights being assailed, being trampled on and even being rolled back,” according to the hostage-like video. She said it’s required “work” to “achieve the ideals of our Founding Fathers.” “It has been people, individuals who have banded together, ordinary people who simply saw what needed to be done and came together and supported those ideals who have made the...

    Following weeks of street protests by the left, Americans are holding rallies to support the new commander in chief, but leftist agitators are vowing to disrupt the patriotic events. The “Spirit of America Rallies,” which have been taking place around the country since February, will culminate this weekend, with most scheduled for Saturday, March 4, including one in Washington, D.C., at LayFayette Square, beginning at 1 p.m. But they won’t be the only ones on the streets, as self-styled “antifa” have vowed to disrupt some of the protests, sparking fears of conflict.

    Barack Obama is getting closer to making his public reappearance in politics, his friend and former Attorney General Eric Holder said on Tuesday. Holder said he’s been talking to the former president about ways — including fundraising and interacting with state legislators — that could help the new National Democratic Redistricting Committee, which Obama asked Holder to chair last year. “It’s coming. He’s coming,” Holder said, speaking to reporters at a briefing for the new group. “And he’s ready to roll.”

    The Democratic National Committee will choose its next leader on Saturday, and when it does it should choose a leader who will resist the pressure to pursue the wrong white people. Hundreds of articles have been written about the imperative of attracting more support from white working-class voters who supported Barack Obama in 2012 but then bolted to back Donald J. Trump. The far more important — and largely untold — story of the election is that more Obama voters defected to third- and fourth-party candidates than the number who supported Mr. Trump. That is the white flight that should...

    Boston’s Trust Act — designed to reassure immigrants that city police would not help deport them — has a loophole that was used to turn over nine men to federal immigration officials, city records show. The nine men turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement in 2015 had serious criminal histories, according to police, making their detention less of a public issue. But advocates worry that the same loophole could be used to detain and deport any immigrant for so much as a traffic violation — putting undocumented families at risk if President-elect Donald Trump follows through on his promise...

Because elected leaders failed to meet voters’ legitimate expectations and aspirations, electorates have become disenchanted with the prevailing versions of democracy and capitalism.

    Sony Pictures Television is in very early stages of rebooting several classic sitcoms from TV legend Norman Lear as miniseries — including “All in the Family,” “The Jeffersons,” and “Good Times” — Variety has learned exclusively. The idea currently being discussed by Lear and Sony executives would be to have new actors recreate classic episodes of the shows, working from the original scripts, and package them as short, six-episode anthologies. The scripts would be treated similar to plays being mounted in new productions. “There is some talk about doing some of the original shows, redoing them with today’s stars,” Lear...

    I’m sure most people remember the snarky condescending remarks President Obama made in 2012: “If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. … If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” The gist of his speech is no business owner can take credit for his or her successful enterprise. Instead, we must give credit to the government, which built the roads and bridges and the Internet and other infrastructure that made any success possible. Obama’s remarks rightfully caused a furor among small-business owners. So capitalism can’t work without extensive government regulations?...

    Donald Trump winning the presidency based on his promise to torpedo globalism came exactly 27 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, and represents the second leg down for “World Socialism.” Although U.S. history books declare capitalist United States the victor in World War II, it was World Socialism that ended up dominating most of the globe. Soviet Union and China carved out massive communist states, India adopted extreme socialism, and communist insurgencies were ascendant in Southeast Asia, Africa and South America.

Let's start by asking: if Trump had lost and his supporters had angrily taken to the streets, destroying private property and threatening police officers while proclaiming "not my president," would the mainstream media have characterized the rioters differently than it has the pro-Clinton rioters? Any fair-minded observer knows the answer is yes: the CNN/MSM would have lambasted the "rioting deplorables" as "what's wrong with America." Substitution is a useful tool to...

By then, however, it will be too late.

But as the excitement unfolded, some activist leaders wondered where the crowds were. Cleveland has seen far smaller protests than those at other recent conventions, despite the nomination of Donald Trump eliciting a rage from progressives that rivals or exceeds their hatred of former President George W.

    The women in black are as misguided, left wing and limp-wristed (more ways then one) Than when they were founded in Israel in the 1960s. Originally called Women in black for justice against war, they were founded by Israeli and Palestinian women, many widows who believed that the solution for the middle east crisis was, well... hippie values like communism, appeasement and more communism. They're biased against the US and Israel in favor of the Arab militants in case you're wondering yeah... The group has grown to chapters all over the world including most major cities in the united...

    Have you heard of Josiah Walls or Hiram Rhodes Revels? How about Joseph Hayne Rainey? If not, you’re not alone. I taught history and I never knew half of our nation’s past until I began to re-educate myself by learning from original source materials, rather than modern textbooks written by progressive Democrats with an agenda. Interestingly, Democrats have long ago erased these historic figures from our textbooks, only to offer deceitful propaganda and economic enticements in an effort to convince people, especially black Americans, that it’s the Democrats rather than Republicans who are the true saviors of civil liberties. Luckily,...

    Liberal activists plan a massive demonstration in New York City Thursday night to protest Donald Trump's appearance at the New York State Republican Committee's annual gala. The immigrant advocacy group Make the Road Action, along with several others, are calling on New Yorkers who find themselves at odds with the Republican presidential front-runner to gather outside the Grand Hyatt Hotel Thursday evening where the state GOP plans to host all three Republican hopefuls for a black tie fundraiser that costs $1,000 to attend. "A collection of organizations and independent New Yorkers are mobilizing to shut down Trump and oppose creeping...

    Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders rails against the “billionaire class” and has called income inequality “the greatest moral issue of our time,” but the senator from Vermont is “not exactly a man of modest means,” according to an article written by Kerri Anne Renzulli for the TIME magazine website. However, “nothing about Bernie’s net worth devalues his progressive beliefs,” stated Peter Daou, a former adviser to Hillary Clinton who responded on the Blue Nation Review website to reports that Sanders and his wife, Jane, could retire with an “effective retirement nest egg” valued at “nearly $2 million.”

    A fan attending Saturday night's Tampa Bay-Pittsburgh game in Bradenton, Florida, was arrested after charging the field and throwing two bottles into the Rays dugout in an apparent protest of the team's trip to Cuba earlier this week. Bradenton police arrested a man of Cuban descent in the top of the seventh inning at McKechnie Field and charged him with trespassing, assault and starting affray, Lt. John Affolter said.

    Bernie Sanders got his start in political movement due to his older brother, Larry Sanders, who headed the Young Democrats at Brooklyn College. If you thought Bernie was a crazy radical, then you haven't met Larry, who moved on to the UK where he runs for parliament as a member of the Green Party. The Green Party is about as terrible as a political party can possibly get. Its only virtue is that unlike its German counterpart, it didn't come out for legalizing pedophilia. (It left that to Labourites like Harriet Harman.)

    On Monday night amidst the voluminous amount of Cuba coverage, ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News made sure to not inform their viewers of an ominous and disturbing backdrop hours earlier when President Obama and a portion of the U.S. delegation stood in Havana’s Revolution Square with a mural of the brutal leftist leader Che Cuevara behind them.

    President Obama and his family will arrive Sunday in Cuba for an historic three-day visit filled with symbolism, but with few expectations that the president’s legacy-building will improve human rights for Cubans under the repressive communist regime of the Castro brothers. Air Force One will land at Jose Marti International Airport near Havana late Sunday afternoon, making Mr. Obama the first sitting U.S. president to set foot on Cuban soil since Calvin Coolidge in 1928. After a stop at the U.S. Embassy, the Obamas are to visit the Cathedral in Old Havana to meet Cardinal Jaime Ortega, the archbishop who...

    Bernie Sanders on Sunday slammed Donald Trump as a “pathological liar” who is “inciting violence” as Sanders kicked off a town hall duel with Hillary Clinton. “I hesitate to say this because I really don’t like to disparage public officials, but Donald Trump is a pathological liar,” Sanders said, in the first exchange of the event at Ohio State University hosted by CNN and TV One. Sanders also blasted Trump for saying that he might pay the legal fees of a man charged with punching a protester at one of his rallies, adding that doing so was tantamount to “inciting...

    President Obama believes Congress will lift the embargo against Cuba — under the next president. Obama made the admission ahead of a historic visit to the communist island nation, intended to cement his new policy of openness toward the United States’s former Cold War foe. “My strong prediction is that sometime in the next president's administration, whether they are a Democrat or a Republican, that the embargo in fact will be removed,” he said in an interview with CNN en Español that aired Monday. The president has relied on his executive powers to establish new trade and travel links with...

    Generations of admiring readers knew Harper Lee as the reclusive author of the classic novel "To Kill a Mockingbird." But a relative few were given a glimpse of another side of Ms. Lee: that of a witty, impish and loyal pen pal. The cartoonist Berkeley Breathed was one person who shared a correspondence with Ms. Lee. After her death on Friday at the age of 89, Mr. Breathed wrote on Facebook of the letters they had exchanged through the years. Later, he shared with The New York Times four letters he had received from Ms. Lee over 14 years, with...
