    Korean Central News Agency announced Friday that North Korea’s Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho and his delegation will be traveling to Cuba, in hopes of revamping international support amid sanctions and widespread condemnation of Pyongyang’s nuclear missile tests.   The Washington Post reported that North Korea’s visit to Cuba occurs as Pyongyang’s largest trading partners announced they would halt trade with the isolated nation. Singapore—North Korea’s seventh largest trading partner–announced it would sever its trade with the country Thursday, while the Philippines—Pyongyang’s fifth largest trading partner—is following suit.

    In December, Democratic Senator Bob Menendez blasted the Obama administration for the historic bad deal they reached with the Castro regime in Cuba. Senator Bob Menendez was also a top critic of Barack Obama’s foolish Iranian nuclear deal. This week Senate Foreign Relations Committee Ranking Member Bob Menendez (D-NJ) spoke about the U.S.-Israel relationship and said that he was not intimidated by anyone, including Israeli’s political enemies or his political friends, when he feels they are wrong.  Today the Obama Department of Justice charged Senator Bob Menendez with corruption. CNN reported: The Justice Department is preparing to bring criminal corruption...
  • COUNTRY AHEAD OF PARTY: PUTTING OBAMA OVER COUNTRY IS TREASON

    “I think it's a bad deal and I've said so for several weeks now. I think we need to put country ahead of party,” Senator Jim Webb said. "It troubles me when I see all this debate about whether this is disloyalty to the president or the Democratic Party.” Webb is a Democrat and he joins a number of other Democrats in criticizing a bad deal that even Obama admitted will allow Iran to get nuclear weapons after a number of years. Obama and his cronies have pursued an extraordinary campaign of vilification against Republicans and Democrats who dared to...

    Frances Robles reports in the New York Times that an ex-aide to Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) stood to benefit from a Dominican port security deal, along with Menendez benefactor Salomon Melgen. From the Times: Mr. Menendez, Democrat of New Jersey, has pushed United States government officials to help enforce a contract that a company owned in part by one of his major donors, Dr. Salomon E. Melgen, has with the Dominican government, which has refused to honor it. A top executive at Dr. Melgen's security company will be Pedro Pablo Permuy, a former national security adviser and senior legislative aide...

    “To those who are confused as to where the United States stands, let me be clear: As is their right under our Constitution, the American people have spoken. They have chosen a new president, and he has chosen a new ambassador to the United Nations…The United States opposes this (UN) resolution (condemning the U.S. embargo of Cuba) today in continued solidarity with the Cuban people and in the hope that they will one day be free to choose their own destiny. This assembly (the UN) does not have the power to end the U.S. embargo. It is based in U.S....

    CIA officials get paid pretty handsomely. And their job-description is pretty clear: to assess foreign threats against our national security and defend us against them.So you’d really hope the American taxpayer was getting an honest return on their “investment” and CIA officials were really  "putting on their thinking caps" and really  "burning the midnight oil" attempting to bump-off a mass-murdering Soviet satrap and terrorist who set up shop 90 miles from our shores during the height of the Cold War.HAH! Hope again. “So far as I have been able to determine,” revealed E. Howard Hunt who, during the early 1960s, served...

    One of the many parts of Barack Obama’s strategy of dismantling US foreign policy and influence in the world was his attempt to “normalize” relations with Communist Cuba. **snip** This Assembly does not have the power to end the US embargo. It is based in US law which only the United States Congress can change. No, what the General Assembly is doing today, what it does every year at this time, is political theater. **full face slap** When the United States abstained on this resolution last year, its decision was explained by saying, “We recognize that the future of the island...

    Ambassador Nikki Haley blasted the United Nations Wednesday in a defiant speech to the 193-member General Assembly before it adopted a resolution calling for an end to the U.S. economic embargo on Cuba. Haley called the long-standing debate “political theater.” “Let’s be honest about what we really see going on here,” Haley said. “This assembly does not have the power to end the U.S. embargo. It is based in U.S. law, which only the United States Congress can change.” The United States voted Wednesday against the U.N. resolution condemning the American trade embargo against Cuba after abstaining last year, during...

    Guess who is hanging around with Raul Castro these days? The answer is China, as we see in this report from Pan Am Post:     Chen Xi, China’s Ambassador to Havana, signed agreements with Cuban Foreign Trade and Foreign Investment Minister Rodrigo Malmiera to expand economic relations between the two countries. China pledged to make a US $1 million donation to help with Hurricane Irma recovery efforts.  Additionally, China will provide more than US $12 million in supplies, including generators, water pumps, purifiers, folding beds and other resources. The agreement granted China a credit line for a project to...

    Quite fittingly, in his “retirement” (will not seek re-election) speech this week Sen. Jeff Flake, this relentless champion of the relentlessly Stalinist Castro regime, attacked Communist-fighter Joe McCarthy.“As I contemplate the Trump presidency, I cannot help but think of Joseph Welch,” Flake emoted. “Welch spoke: “Until this moment, Senator (McCarthy), I think I never really gauged your cruelty, or your recklessness… Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?... The moral power of Welch’s words ended McCarthy’s rampage on American values.”Most people forget that, as Ann Coulter patiently explained in her...

    Those who think “Fake News” started with Trump and the media’s “slobbering love affair” with a U.S. president started with Obama should have seen John F. Kennedy’s term. Imagine Obama's term with no Fox News, internet or talk radio. That’s about what JFK enjoyed. And tragically, the fairy tales Kennedy’s court scribes concocted about JFK’s Pattonesque handling of the Cuban Missile Crisis prevail in media/academic circles even today. In fact, you’d never guess this from the “think pieces” from today’s “Best and Brightest” in the Fake News media, but that Khrushchev swept the floor with Kennedy during the Cuban Missile...

    [I begin] with the story of a series of Socialist scholars conferences that Barack Obama attended when he lived in New York City between the years 1983 and 1985. And when I finally reconstructed what had gone on at these Socialist conferences that Barack Obama attended, I truly was amazed because what I saw was a kind of map of Barack Obama’s entire subsequent political career. It was at this Socialist conferences in New York in the mid-’80s that Barack Obama encountered the groups, the strategies, and the mentors who would guide him throughout his entire political career. [T]hese Socialist...

    It sounds sort of like a mass of crickets. But not quite. A high-pitched whine, but from what? It seems to undulate, even writhe. Listen closely: Some hear multiple, distinct tones colliding in a nails-on-the-chalkboard effect. The Associated Press has obtained a recording of what some U.S. Embassy workers heard in Havana, part of the series of unnerving incidents later deemed to be deliberate attacks. The recording, released Thursday by the AP, is the first disseminated publicly of the many taken in Cuba of sounds that led investigators initially to suspect a sonic weapon. The recordings from Havana have been...

    A Yale tour group visits a Havana restaurant in “The Cuban Affair,” the new novel by Nelson DeMille. As the Cuban handler expounds on the blessings of socialism, several of the Yalies nod in thoughtful agreement. “If they spent an hour in a kennel, they’d probably come out barking,” quips Mr. DeMille’s narrator. “So much for an Ivy League education.” The point is made and the scene moves on—but during a conversation over coffee at Chicago’s Four Seasons Hotel, where Mr. DeMille is staying during a nationwide book tour, the author muses on the root of the problem. His mind...

    “Why isn’t the Senate Intel Committee looking into the Fake News Networks in OUR country to see why so much of our news is just made up-FAKE!”  (President Donald Trump, 10/5.)Among many others, The Washington Post is all over Trump for his tweet, denouncing it as a manifestation of “autocratic desperation.”  So let’s start with them.And yes, let’s also mention “autocrats.” You see, amigos: The Washington Post’s Latin American correspondent Nick Miroff is married to an apparatchik of the Castro regime named Camila Harnecker. She is the daughter of the founder of the Castro regime’s military intelligence (G-2) apparatus. This...

    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...

    ABCNEWS.com ^ | 6-Oct-2017 | Connor Finnegan
    One week after the Trump administration issued a travel warning for Cuba, it said that a "handful" of Americans who traveled to the island country reported to the State Department that they "experienced symptoms similar" to those affecting nearly two dozen embassy personnel in Havana. Twenty-two American government employees have been hit by "targeted" attacks, with symptoms ranging from dizziness, to headache and fatigue, to hearing loss, to traumatic brain injury. But, if verified, the claims in the statement from the State Department would mark a dramatic escalation of the ongoing mystery that has vexed U.S. investigators and so far...
