    Cuba will be transformed into one giant concert on August 13th to celebrate Comandante Fidel Castro’s 90th birthday, announced the island’s cultural authorities. According to information released by the Cuban Institute of Music (ICM), at 10 am on Saturday, August 13, “a great cantata and concerts” will be held across the island for Fidel Castro’s birthday. The press release from ICM added that “over one hundred children’s choirs and concert bands will sing in unison, across the country, at cultural institutions, in squares and parks to celebrate with a lot of joy the birthday of Fidel, the father of all...

    WASHINGTON -- The National Enquirer has published what it says is conclusive evidence that Ted Cruz’s father, Rafael B. Cruz, is the man photographed next to JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald distributing pro-Castro leaflets in 1963 in New Orleans. The Cruz presidential campaign fired back unequivocally. “This is another garbage story in a tabloid full of garbage,” communications director Alice Stewart told McClatchy. “The story is false; that is not Rafael in the picture.” The explosive suggestion that Cruz’s father would have had any affiliation with Oswald is not corroborated in any other way. Cuban-born Rafael Cruz is now a...
  • The Donald Trump Effect: Not a politician and dominating on immigration.(CO Trump wins44%)

    In light of all the controversy surrounding the Cruz Colorado voterless win. We find that Trump would have won Colorado quite easily. If a Republican Presidential Primary Election were to take place in Colorado, 44% of likely voters would vote for Donald Trump, 34% support Ted Cruz, 17% support John Kasich and 5% are undecided. When asked to choose between only Ted Cruz or Donald Trump, 48% support Trump and 42% support Cruz, and 10% are undecided. These results are interesting in light of the results at the Republican State Convention where Ted Cruz won all 34 delegates awarded. What...

    HAVANA — Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro delivered a valedictory speech Tuesday to the Communist Party that he put in power a half-century ago, telling party members he will soon die and exhorting them to help his ideas survive. “I’ll be 90 years old soon,” Castro said in his most extensive public appearance in years. “Soon I’ll be like all the others. The time will come for all of us, but the ideas of the Cuban Communists will remain as proof on this planet that if they are worked at with fervor and dignity, they can produce the material and...

    Cuban revolutionary icon Fidel Castro appeared in public for the first time in nine months, chatting with school children and criticizing Barack Obama's recent visit. Castro, 89, was seen on state TV state seated as he spoke to children about a late fellow revolutionary leader, Vilma Espin. The last time Castro appeared in public was nine months ago, when state TV showed him with civilians who work with the armed forces and the interior ministry.

The hyperventilating “reporters” probably followed up by mentioning “historic changes!” and “reforms!” in Cuba, as proven by the very concert! In fact, the only “historic changes!” in Cuba—as recognized by the tiny number of people who actually study this issue—involve the source of the cash-flow into the Castro-Family-Crime-Syndicate (euphemized as “Cuba” by the media and U.S. State Dept.)When that cash flowed from the Soviet Union rock...

"My modest suggestion is to reflect and do not try now to develop theories about Cuban politics."

The Secretary of State addressed the issue on CBS´s Face The Nation on Saturday. Host John Dickerson asked Kerry how he would respond to those who criticized Obama for attending a baseball game in Cuba on the day of the attacks and dancing the tango in Argentina the following day. Kerry responded by quoting conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer, saying the President´s schedule was ´not set by terrorists´.

    Barack Obama will leave office with our country in a weakened state and our enemies growing in power and influence. Once again, President Obama is in the wrong place at the wrong time. This week, it was Havana, Cuba, the home of the tyrannical Castro brothers, murderous communist dictators. On Tuesday, the President concluded his historic visit to the island nation. It was the first official trip by a U.S. President since Calvin Coolidge 88 years ago. The net effect of the visit is that Cuba scored massive propaganda points. They will soon start cashing in on more tourism and...

[…] Obama’s visit was intended to build irreversible momentum behind his opening with Cuba and to convince the Cuban people and the Cuban government...

    Ahead of resident Obama's historic visit, Castro's Cuba is more oppressive than ever. An Afro-Cuban dissident who spent time in Fidel Castro’s gulags, Oscar Biscet is one of many people that represent the real Cuba, the people who will be hidden from sight as resident Obama visits this week. While the resident basks in the Cuban sun and in photo-ops with its heavy-handed dictator, the fate and freedom of political resisters like Biscet remains grim. Biscet is free now in technical terms, but in reality, he remains among a cohort of dissenters who still live in an invisible prison: a...

    Denial then, denial now. The video you’re about to see is more than 30 years old, and it’s only fair to Bernie Sanders that we point that out. But it’s also fair to ask: What about Bernie Sanders’s views has changed in 30 years? Not much that we can see. It was pretty standard left-wing boilerplate back then to dismiss any problems people had with socialist governments abroad, especially if opposing said governments was a priority of the Reagan Administration. You might recall that in the 1980s, the Reagan Administration gave massive support to the contras fighting the communist Sandinista...

Ramon Castro, the older brother of Fidel and Raul Castro, died last week at age 91. NPR reporter Lourdes Garcia-Navarro warmly recalled his sense of humor from going to a party in Havana for American business people (despite the ongoing trade embargo).

Obama joins Michael Moore, Max Blumenthal, Dhimmi Carter, alongside Fidel Castro, George Galloway, Jeremy Corbyn, and other radical crazies.

The 25-year-old Oscar winner has signed on to star as Fidel Castro's onetime lover in Sony Pictures' "Marita," Entertainment Weekly reports. Now 76, Marita Lorenz had an affair with Castro during the Cuban revolution in the 1950s. Lorenz became pregnant at only 19, but had an abortion before leaving Cuba. She was then recruited by the CIA to assassinate then-Prime Minister Castro. In addition, the German-born Lorenz testified about the John F. Kennedy assassination and later penned two autobiographies – "Marita: One Woman's Extraordinary Tale of Love"...

Upon touching down at José Martí International Airport shortly before dawn, Bryant was certain that he was about to enter what he had dubbed "paradise." "Cuba was creating a true democracy - a place where everyone was equal, where violence against blacks, injustice, and racism were things of the past," Bryant would later recall thinking as he was whisked away by soldiers, whom he expected to escort him to a comfortable hotel.

Gross was a contractor for USAID (United States Agency for international Development) who was arrested in Havana on Dec. 9, 2009. His "crime" was attempting to provide Cuba's Jewish groups with satellite internet equipment. Gross was held in KGB-and designed dungeons for 5 months where he lost over a hundred pounds. In March 2011 he was finally "tried" (by a judicial system lifted lock-stock-barrel from Stalin's during The Great Terror) and sentenced to a further...

    Not many people, including Catholics, are aware of Raúl Castro's background. The brother of Fidel is in fact a sociopath who served as an executioner during the revolution as well as after his brother took power. Raúl was known for his ruthlessness and brutality. Years after the revolution, the homicidal maniac, who quite possibly is demon possessed, suggested that his nickname should be "Raúl the Terrible" for his role in hundreds of killings. He even executed a close friend, Gen. Arnaldo Ochoa, on orders from Fidel in 1989. Cubans who dare to criticize the government or the policies of this...

    The most extraordinary things about Stephen Harding's The Last Battle, a truly incredible tale of World War II, are that it hasn’t been told before in English, and that it hasn’t already been made into a blockbuster Hollywood movie. Here are the basic facts: on 5 May 1945—five days after Hitler’s suicide—three Sherman tanks from the 23rd Tank Battalion of the U.S. 12th Armored Division under the command of Capt. John C. ‘Jack’ Lee Jr., liberated an Austrian castle called Schloss Itter in the Tyrol, a special prison that housed various French VIPs, including the ex-prime ministers Paul Reynaud and...

    North America's answer to The Principality of Sealand -the self-declared micronation of Molossia (a few acres near Reno + colony in California)-  is proud to announce the opening of a glistening new visitor's center for international tourists... Surrounded on all sides by US/Nevada territory, landlocked Molossia was founded and has been run (with an iron fist!) by one Kevin Baugh since 1999.  A 2012 petition on WhiteHouse.gov meant to produce US recognition of Molossia's sovereignty failed to gain the required number of signatures, yet His Excellency continues to make improvements, 'serve the people' (27 members of the Baugh family), and expand territory. Baugh's...

    Apparently only communists were invited After 17 years as a personal bodyguard of Fidel Castro, Juan Rienaldo Sanchez recently claimed in a new book that the Cuban dictator was a major trafficker of illegal drugs into the US for years- and profited handsomely from it. Sound plenty believable to me, North Korea exports meth for hard currency- and El Jefe was close with Columbia's coke-producing communist rebels/terrorists FARC. Other interesting revelations would be that Fidel kept his immediate family a secret -had more kids out of wedlock- and was kind of a lazy slob that 'always slept until 10 or...

    For 17 years, Juan Reinaldo Sanchez served as bodyguard to Fidel Castro. But when he became disillusioned with the Cuban dictator’s hypocrisy and tried to retire in 1994, Castro had him thrown in prison. Sanchez made 10 attempts to escape the island, finally making it to the US in 2008. Now he reveals all in his new book, “The Double Life of Fidel Castro.” In this excerpt, Sanchez exposes “El Jefe’s” privileged life.

    "It was right after the revolution," George continued. One afternoon, Hemingway told him, "There's something you should see." The nature of the expedition was a mystery; Hemingway made a shaker of drinks, daiquiris or whatever. They got in the car with a few others and drove some way out of town. They got out, set up chairs and took out the drinks, as if they were going to watch the sunset. Soon, a truck arrived. This, explained George, was what they'd been waiting for. It came, as Hemingway knew, the same time each day. It stopped and some men with...

    Cuban President Raul Castro has said he was so impressed by a Vatican audience with Pope Francis that he might return to the faith he was born into. Mr Castro praised the pontiff's wisdom, adding: "I will resume praying and turn to the Church again if the Pope continues in this vein." He thanked the Pope for brokering a rapprochement between Cuba and the US. The communist leader had stopped at the Vatican after attending Russia's World War Two Victory Day in Moscow. The Catholic Church has maintained ties with Havana since the 1959 revolution. The Pope will visit Cuba...

    Cuban President Raul Castro paid a call on Pope Francis at the Vatican Sunday to thank him for working for Cuban-US detente and later said he is so impressed by the pontiff he is considering a return to the Catholic church’s fold. “Bienvenido!” Francis said in his native Spanish, welcoming Castro to his studio near the Vatican public audience hall. The Cuban president, bowing his head, gripped Francis’ hand with both of his, and the two men began private talks. The meeting lasted nearly an hour, as the Argentine-born Francis and Castro spoke in their native Spanish. Francis will visit...

    Well, it’s official. After last month’s chat and handshake with Stalinist dictator (and mass-murdering sadist) Raul Castro, President Obama kindly removed the Castro family fiefdom from the State Department’s list of “terror-sponsoring” nations.“Sadist” might sound hyperbolic but it amply applies here. As well known by Cuba-watchers Raul Castro’s first official act in Jan. 1959 was lining up 150 potential regime opponents in front of a ditch and having them machine gunned and bulldozed into a mass grave. By the end of the year he had signed off on 550 murder warrants. Six years later the bullet-shattered bodies of an estimated...

    President Obama officially removed Cuba from the State Department's list of state sponsors of terrorism, the White House announced. The president submitted a statement to Congress that read, "I hereby certify, with respect to the rescission of the determination of March 1, 1982, regarding Cuba that: (i) the Government of Cuba has not provided any support for international terrorism during the preceding 6-month period; and (ii) the Government of Cuba has provided assurances that it will not support acts of international terrorism in the future."(continued)
