    Castro's (unregistered) agents-of-influence are frantically busy this week thanks to their (unregistered) accomplices in the Fake News Media. All claim an earth-shaking "transition" is underway in Cuba! Needless to add, according to these (unregistered) foreign agents, President Trump should promptly avail himself of this golden opportunity to embrace those harmless, innocent, free- health-care providers that U.S. policy has unjustly and vicariously “bullied” for ‘lo so many years. Could anything be more transparently facetious and idiotic? To quote the late Joan Rivers: “Can we talk?” In fact, what’s happening as Cuban “President” (dictator) Raul Castro “steps down” in favor of Cuban...

    After meeting last week with Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely last week, a Romanian politician has announced their nation will be moving their embassy to Jerusalem. This will make Romania the fourth nation to do so and the first European Union country to break ranks and recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Romanian Prime Minister Viorica Dăncilă, a Social Democrat, proposed the move to his government last Wednesday, April 11, and the process moved forward quickly. In an interview with the Romanian TV channel ANTENA 3 on Thursday, Israeli Independence Day, Liviu Dragnea, the president of the Chamber of Deputies...

    The Bay of Pigs freedom-fight transpired 57 years ago this week. Given that Hollywood and the mainstream media have finally gotten around to revealing the hideous truth about a Kennedy’s perfidy and how the media/Democrat complex helped cover it up (i.e. Teddy, Chappaquiddick), who knows, perhaps one day they’ll level with us about what really happened at the Bay of Pigs. "I really admire toughness and courage, and I will tell you that the people of this brigade [Brigada 2506] really have that…you were let down by our country.''

    Miguel Díaz-Canel has been sworn in as Cuba's new president, replacing Raúl Castro who took over from his ailing brother Fidel in 2006. It is the first time since the revolution in 1959 that a Castro is not at the helm of the government. Mr Díaz-Canel had been serving as first vice-president for the past five years. Even though Mr Díaz-Canel was born after the revolution, he is a staunch ally of Raúl Castro and is not expected to make any radical changes. 'The Revolution continues its course' He was elected by the members of the National Assembly, all 605...

    Cuba turns to a model Communist Party official, Miguel Diaz-Canel, to steer it through a period of uncertainty when it finally turns the page on the Castro era in a vote on Thursday. The 57-year-old First Vice President is the pre-ordained choice of Raul Castro as he steps down, ensuring that the vote in the National Assembly to appoint him will be little more than a formality.

    You've heard of skunks at the garden party? Such as still-ruling Nicaraguan socialist strongman, Daniel Ortega, who got his famous nickname from none other than the great Ronald Reagan? Well, now we have pigs at the garden party of democracy, the Organization of American States' Summit of the Americas, and this time, quite literally. At the globally watched summit, locals released a bunch of pigs through the streets of the Peruvian capital of Lima, around the Plaza San Martin, which is one of its main public spaces, spray-painted with the names of Venezuela's dictator, Nicolas Maduro, and Cuba's dictator, Raul...

    For the first time, the U.S. government has publicly acknowledged the existence in Washington of what appear to be rogue devices that foreign spies and criminals could be using to track individual cellphones and intercept calls and messages. The use of what are known as cellphone-site simulators by foreign powers has long been a concern, but American intelligence and law enforcement agencies – which use such eavesdropping equipment themselves – have been silent on the issue until now. In a March 26 letter to Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden, the Department of Homeland Security acknowledged that last year it identified suspected...

    MONTERREY (Reuters) - Mexican left-wing presidential candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has an 18-point lead ahead of the July 1 election, according to a poll published on Monday that showed him with a growing advantage at the start of formal campaigning. Lopez Obrador, who launched his campaign on Sunday, holds 38 percent of the vote, according to the poll by Parametria, published by Reuters on Monday ahead of wider distribution. That compared to 35 percent in its previous poll. A Lopez Obrador victory could usher in a Mexican government less accommodating toward the United States, where President Donald Trump has...

Everybody was crying."  (Steven Spielberg, March 27.)“My dinner with Fidel Castro were the eight most important hours of my life!” (Steven Spielberg rhapsodizing about his visit to Cuba and meeting with the Stalinist, gun-outlawing, mass-murderer Fidel Castro in 2002.)Emma Gonzalez, in case you hadn’t heard, is the daughter of a refugee who graciously found refuge in Second Amendment-blessed America from gun-outlawing Cuba. “Better” still the propaganda ministry of the totalitarian, terror-sponsoring Castro regime has adopted Emma Gonzalez as a cause célèbre,...

    President Trump has not been as soft on Russia as the media would have us believe. In fact, he has been tougher than most of his recent predecessors. This week he expelled 60 Russian diplomats in response to the early March attack on a former Russian spy in England. On March 15 came the announcement of the long-awaited sanctions in response to Russia’s tampering in the 2016 election and cyberattacks that infiltrated the nuclear, energy, commercial, water, aviation and manufacturing sectors. A total of 19 Russians were specifically cited as were five Russian companies, including the Internet Research Agency, which...

    Venezuela’s Vice President Tareck El Aissami, an official of Syrian-Lebanese origin sanctioned by the United States for his connections to drug trafficking, is a “huge” monetary contributor to Iran’s narco-terrorist proxy Hezbollah. Citing sources on the ground in Lebanon during an event late last week hosted on Capitol Hill by the Center for a Secure Free Society (SFS), Dr. Vanessa Neumann, a leading expert on drug cartels and terrorist groups in Latin America, told Breitbart News, “Tareck El Aissami is one of Hezbollah’s great bagmen, a sort of huge funder, and the money goes through the networks, and then, as...

    “Given Pompeo’s credentials, the New York Times assured us this Tuesday that this Trump appointment could actually manage to get the world to miss Rex Tillerson.” (Cuba’s Communist-party paper Granma, March 13.)No surprise here. In fact, historically it’s very commonplace. To wit: when the propaganda ministry of the mass-murdering, terror-sponsoring totalitarian regime whose lifelong craving was to nuke the U.S. seeks to vilify the U.S.—instead of tasking their KGB-trained apparatchiks with cranking out a vicious, lie-filled anti-U.S. diatribe, they simply quote the editorial board of The New York Times.But perhaps the term “historically-commonplace” strikes some of my amigos as unnecessarily...

    President Donald Trump is expected to fire VA Secretary David Shulkin and is strongly considering replacing him with U.S. Army Veteran Pete Hegseth, according to three sources who spoke to Townhall under the condition of anonymity. It has been rumored former Texas Governor Rick Perry is also on the list for the job.It has been widely reported President Trump called Hegseth on Monday during a meeting with Shulkin in the Oval Office to go over options for reform. According to Axios, Trump specifically asked Hegseth to analyze new VA legislation while Shulkin listened in on speaker phone. Since Shulkin took over, the...

In this article, I wanted to analyze my preps, and the nature of the apocalypse we have been forced to face. I don’t know about you, but anything that kicks you out of your place, of your warm bed, your pets, kids, wife, and the rest of your family, for me does not have another better word to describe it. My comfort bubble was destroyed, my work of an entire life was thrown out by the window, my family insurance full coverage policy is gone...

    The 57-year-old Communist Party official expected to assume Raul Castro's seat as president of Cuba on April 19 says the country's next government will be more responsive to its people. Miguel Diaz-Canel told reporters in the central city of Santa Clara that "the people will participate in the decisions that the government takes." He also lamented the downturn in relations with the U.S. under President Donald Trump, saying "the reestablishment of relations has been deteriorating thanks to an administration that has offended Cuba." Diaz-Canel appeared to be a promising a shift toward a more open governing style rather than any...
