    Black radical WEB DuBois, who later joined the Communist Party, was the organization's first director of publicity and research, as well as editor of the group's monthly publication The Osiris. This publication gave DuBois an excellent outlet from which to pour forth all manner of racial invective against whites, supposedly in the name of "promoting equality." .... DuBois was known to have "hailed the Russian Revolution of 1917" and he travelled to the Soviet Union in 1926 and 1936. He especially liked 'the racial attitudes of the Communists'." In 1922 the NAACP started to receive grants from the Garland Fund,...

    I can’t take credit for the title. I was getting ready for work last Tuesday morning at ‘O dark thirty’. I was listening to our local conservative blowtorch, KSFO 560 AM morning drive show, starring that great nemesis of the Greenie crowd, Brian Sussman. He was talking to an American citizen of Cuban descent whose parents escaped the wonderland of Castro’s communist Cuba. Brian asked him how to say ‘skinny’ in Spanish… and they came up with the gag-line Flaco Communisto. The rest is my own invention, especially apropos given the high regard our glorious leader obviously has for he,...
  • M.A.S.H. Star Partners with Castro's Spy Agency

    Though a consistently good show, few conservatives mistook M.A.S.H for anything but pinko propaganda. Last week long-time M.A.S.H star Mike Farrell (Capt. B.J. Hunnicut) took the last few baby-steps and started spouting outright Communist propaganda. In a letter to President Obama, Farrell officially partners with Castro’s KGB-trained DGI urging the release of five of their agents and officers who were convicted in 2001 of conspiracy to commit espionage against the U.S. and conspiracy to murder Americans. The Supreme Court has twice upheld the convictions of these Communist terrorists and accessories to murder. In 1933, Stalin’s propaganda chief, Willi Munzenberg, re-monikered...

    BEIRUT: A Hezbollah delegation visited Cuba and Venezuela last week and met with a number of parliamentarians and officials, the party’s press office said Wednesday. The visit came in response to an official invitation by the head of International Relations Division of the Central Committee of the Cuban Communist Party, José Ramon Balaguer. At one point, the delegation, which comprised Loyalty to the Resistance Party MP Nawwar Sahili and head of Hezbollah’s International Relations Department Ammar Musawi, visited the Santa Clara tomb of Ernesto "Che" Guevara, the Argentinean Marxist revolutionary icon, where they laid a wreath. Musawi was quoted by...

    The number of cholera cases confirmed in eastern Cuba jumped from 30 to 85 over the weekend but the death toll remained at three, one government official said, although independent reports put the deaths at anywhere from five to 15. Up to five other cases of cholera also were unofficially reported in Havana and dissidents in Guantánamo near the eastern tip of the island reported a handful of cholera-like cases in Caimanera, a village on the edge of the U.S. navy base. The state-owned TV station in Granma province, where the outbreak hit hardest, suggested residents avoid travelling outside the...

    One of President Obama’s largest financial backers is a key executive at the largest Swiss bank in the world, complicating his criticism of presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney. Robert Wolf is president of Swiss financial giant UBS Investment Bank and chairman of UBS Americas. He has been one of Obama’s most prolific fundraisers dating back to 2006, when the former Senator from Illinois initiated his run for the White House. Wolf has bundled more than $500,000 for the president’s reelection, campaign records show. He is but one of many wealthy bankers Obama has turned to in an effort to win...

    Historian Lamar Waldron is out with his new book Watergate: The Hidden History which exposes Nixon's role as the liaison between the CIA and the Mafia in their failed plots to assassinate Cuban revolutionary Fidel Castro, and it was files on this subject which the Watergate burglars were seeking as reported by Thom Hartmann for the Huffington Post: As one of the Watergate burglars admitted, and Senate Watergate Committee investigators indicated in their secret questioning of Mafia don Johnny Rosselli, Nixon was worried about a Cuban Dossier of CIA attempts to kill Fidel Castro. Those attempts began in earnest in...

    After years of bulldozing, President Obama finally got Senate confirmation for a scandal-plagued diplomat forced out of a U.S. ambassadorship for her close ties to a terrorist-sponsoring foreign government. That means a leftist open borders activist (Mari Carmen Aponte) with a controversial past officially represents the administration abroad. In a 62-37 vote last week, the U.S. Senate approved the confirmation of Aponte, a former board member of the National Council of la Raza (NCLR) and Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund (PRLDEF), as the U.S. ambassador to El Salvador. Obama originally nominated Aponte in December 2009 and made her...

    The $31 million Medicare-fraud case reported from Miami yesterday may not be the largest in American history but certainly is one of the more innovative. According to the Miami Herald, it is "the first such case that directly traces money fleeced from the beleaguered program into the Cuban banking system." The Herald described the heist as "an intricate system" that funneled money "from fraudulent HIV treatment and medical equipment billings, first through banks in Canada and Trinidad and eventually [to] Cuba."

    The company says in its lawsuit that the new law, scheduled to take effect July 1, is unconstitutional because only the federal government can set foreign policy. The Coral Gables-based subsidiary of Odebrecht, the Brazilian engineering and construction conglomerate, sued the state Monday over a contentious new Florida law that bans governments from hiring companies with business ties to Cuba.

    What Is Rhabdomyosarcoma?By Carol Bengle Gilbert | Yahoo! Contributor Network – 55 mins ago Journalist Dan Rather says he learned from a single source close to Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez that Chavez is suffering from end-stage rhabdomyosarcoma. The unnamed source told Rather Chavez is likely to live a couple of months at most, not long enough to see the results of Venezuela's Oct. 7 presidential election. Chavez is on the ballot along with Henrique Capriles Radonski. Chavez completed a round of radiation in Cuba two weeks ago. In February, the South American leader had a pelvic tumor surgically removed, the...

    Spanish company Repsol has said it is pulling out of Cuba after failing in a recent attempt to find oil off the island. Chairman Antonio Brufau told journalists and investors that Repsol "won't do another" well in Cuba. On 18 May Repsol announced an exploratory well it had drilled north of the Cuban coast had come up dry. Cuba's communist government is relying on potentially huge oil and gas reserves to revive the economy. Repsol's unsuccessful attempt, some 50km (31 miles) off the island, cost the company more than $100m (£155m). The decision to stop operations in Cuba was announced...

    Florida’s top Congressional Democrats broke with President Barack Obama on Tuesday over his administration’s decision to issue Fidel Castro’s niece a visa to attend a conference this week in San Francisco. The opposition of Sen. Bill Nelson and Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz came just hours after Republicans had blasted away at the visa decision —while failing to acknowledge that Republican President George W. Bush’s administration had allowed Mariela Castro to visit the United States three times a decade ago.

    MIAMI -- A major league pitcher who defected from Cuba is being sued for $18 million by a Cuban-American man imprisoned on the communist island. The lawsuit was filed recently in Miami federal court against Aroldis Chapman, a left-handed pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds. The lawsuit claims Chapman falsely accused Danilo Curbelo Garcia of involvement in human trafficking, leading to his 2008 arrest and conviction in Cuba. Curbelo Garcia is serving a 10-year sentence. Chapman defected in 2009 in the Netherlands and was signed a year later by the Reds to a six-year, $30.25 million contract. The lawsuit claims Chapman...

    Fear! and being the first man I want to post a comment on this. FEAR! It is the life draining emotion. It is what keeps you from accomplishing and doing and starting. It is excessively protectful. It is how animals think...the kind of animals that get eaten. Fear is destructive in that it prevents you from doing anything at all other than running away or hunkering in a fetal "down and cover". Fear thrives on pessimism and complaining. The man that wakes every morning, walks outside and smiles at the bright sun and blue sky and cinches down the ruck,...
