    Oliver Stone's recent visit to Venezuela to premiere his Castro/Chavez infomercial "My Friend Hugo" has brought him under fire in social media. Exasperated beyond endurance by the onslaught Stone recently lashed back with (apparently) the most hateful insult his inflamed mind could conjure. You people are: "Similar to the right-wing Florida Cuban exiles who’ve helped keep the US in a dungeon of ignorance!" he raved. For leftists its “right-wing lunatics spreading a dungeon if ignorance!” For normal folks it’s: “people who have actually experienced communism trying to circumvent communist propaganda as disseminated by a media-Hollywood axis—and one not always completely...

    Members of the University of Michigan Black Student Union said they would have to resort to “physical action” if a list of seven demands issued on Martin Luther King Day are not met within seven days, The Ann Arbor News reported. “If negotiations are not complete we will be forced to do more, beginning to increase valiantly our activism for social progress and take physical actions on the University of Michigan’s campus,” said senior Shayla Scales to a group of students gathered on campus, according to the Ann Arbor News.

    In his inaugural address Wednesday, incoming New York Mayor Bill de Blasio tried to establish an intellectual pedigree for his focus on economic inequality. He invoked Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Franklin Roosevelt, Eleanor Roosevelt, Al Smith, Frances Perkins, Fiorello La Guardia, Jacob Riis, David Dinkins, Mario Cuomo, and Harry Belafonte. It reminded me of when Democrats, eager to prove their national-security bona fides, tell audiences they hail from the party of Roosevelt, Truman, and Kennedy. As if there wasn’t some other Democrat after Kennedy who dabbled at war and peace, some guy from Texas. De Blasio’s speech was a bit...

    A week ago, President Obama publicly threw his support to Bill de Blazio (shown in suit), the Democratic Party candidate for New York City mayor, joining Hollywood activists Alec Baldwin, Susan Sarandon, Harry Belafonte — along with Bill and Hillary Clinton, George Soros, and a host of veteran “Progressives” who are endorsing the former NYC councilman and public advocate. On the same day that President Obama announced his endorsement (September 23), the New York Times published an extensive investigation of de Blasio’s radical Marxist background, focusing particularly on his devotion to the Marxist-Leninist Sandinista regime in Nicaragua. De Blasio also...

    As of right now, Bill de Blasio is the man to beat in the race to be the next mayor of New York City. The latest polls put him at 43%, which is enough to avoid a run-off in the Democratic primary, and it is widely believed that whoever wins the Democratic primary will sail into office. For the most part, sitting mayor, Michael Bloomberg, has stayed out of the race, but in an extensive interview with New York Magazine the term-limited Independent ripped de Blasio's campaign as "class-warfare and racist":

    TALLAHASSEE –For the past 12 days and 11 nights, a crowd of college students, young political organizers and even some retirees have been walking the halls of the Florida Capitol, sitting outside Gov. Rick Scott's office and sleeping on the building's hard marble floors. What brought them here is the death of Trayvon Martin and acquittal of the man who shot him, as well as racial profiling and juvenile justice issues highlighted by the death of the 17-year-old Miami boy. And as media attention has grown, so has their number – and their resolve not to leave anytime soon. "I'm...

    The "King of Calypso," Hugo Chávez enthusiast, and "Banana Boat" crooner, octogenarian Harry Belafonte is so thrilled with the reelection of Barack Obama that he's taken to cable "news" network MSNBC to share his views on how President Obama should deal with political nemeses. In addition to singing, acting and songwriting, throughout his career Harry "Viva la revolucion" Belafonte has also promoted himself as a civil rights advocate and humanitarian. In addition to issuing indictments like: "Our foreign policy has made a wreck of this planet," Mr. Belafonte also heartily endorses the ailing Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez's socialist revolution.

    Like Condoleezza Rice, Herman Cain doesn’t need Harry Belafonte to tell him what it means to be black — but it looks like the legendary singer is just as willing to reject Cain’s life experiences as a legitimate example of what it means to grow up black in America as he was to reject the life experiences of Rice and Colin Powell in 2002. Remember when he compared the two of them to “house slaves” who would retain their privileged positions only for as long as they did what “the master” wanted? He doesn’t have anything nice to say about...

Johnson, who would be a natural to tap into Paul’s base, shrugged off any concerns over sharing the limelight with Paul, saying the congressman “still has his heyday today.” “First of all, having a couple people talk about the same thing, I think, is really powerful. I mean, that’s a good thing!” he told TheDC. When asked if he is in regular communication...

    HE is a media darling, a paparazzi target and a source of inspiration for millions of Democrats who dream of retaking the White House in 2008. But Senator Barack Obama, the charismatic African-American who is shaking up the presidential primary race, has not impressed some of America’s most powerful black activists. Civil rights leaders who have dominated black politics for much of the past two decades have pointedly failed to embrace the 45-year-old Illinois senator who is considering a bid to become America’s first black president. At a meeting of activists in New York last week, the Rev Jesse Jackson,...

"AARP does not have the right to expect taxpayers to foot the bill to help advance its political agenda," said John Carlisle of the National Legal and Policy Center, author of a paper on federal funding to the seniors organization.

    Venezuela is going on a "buying spree" for military equipment that goes beyond the country's legitimate needs, according to the U.S. State Department. The warning comes on the heels of U.S. efforts to block a proposed sales of military aircraft - including 20 planes costing $200 million - and other equipment to Venezuela by Spain and Brazil. Such sales are part of what "we would consider an outsized military buildup in Venezuela," according to State Department spokesman Sean McCormack who added that the government of President Hugo Chavez - considered by some to be a younger version of Fidel Castro...

I don't see it as a supreme effort, it's a way of life: if you believe in freedom, if you believe in justice, if you believe in democracy, if you believe in people's rights, if you believe in the harmony of all humankind, I don't know if you have any other choice than to be there for as long as it takes. But, what I...

    Sunday, September 21, 2003Poor urged to go to polls -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Belafonte sings praises of voting By Dan Klepal The Cincinnati Enquirer Harry Belafonte's voice helped him become a pop singing icon and a movie star. On Saturday, the 76-year-old actor, crooner and political activist used his still-strong and silky voice at First Lutheran Church in Over-the-Rhine to urge people to empower themselves by voting. Belafonte was the main speaker at a workshop to teach people about public policy, register them to vote and help them with community organizing. It is the first of a series of workshops that will be...

    OSSINING, N.Y. (AP)--Pete Seeger was in New York City's Union Square in 1953 along with 5,000 other supporters of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg as the hour of the couple's execution drew near. ``We were waiting and hoping Eisenhower would give a last-minute reprieve,'' says Seeger, now 84. ``We learned that wouldn't happen, and then a great sigh, a great wail went up from the crowd when the time came and we knew they'd been executed.'' On the 50th anniversary of the execution Thursday, Seeger, Susan Sarandon, Harry Belafonte and other show business activists will appear at a benefit for the...

    Vargas Llosa on Friday took a swipe at the Colombian Nobel Literature Prize winner and longtime friend of the Cuban leader, calling him "a writer who is a courtesan of Fidel Castro, whom the dictatorship holds up as an intellectual alibi." "And he so far has come to accept very well all the abuses, the trampling of human rights that the Cuban dictatorship has committed, saying that secretly he helps some political prisoners get released," the Peruvian-born Vargas Llosa told Caracol radio. "It is no secret to anyone that Fidel Castro hands over some political prisoners to his courtesans once...

    In the wake of the execution without trial of three hijackers and the sentencing of 75 Cuban dissidents to long prison terms, more than 160 so-called intellectuals from around the world, including two Nobel Prize winners, have signed a declaration defending Fidel Castro's brutal regime. Among the "intellectuals" signing the two-paragraph declaration "To the Conscience of the World," a vicious attack on their own country, were two Hollywood has-beens: Democrat house slave and washed-up calypso singer Harry Belafonte, who has a far higher opinion of the Cuban tyrant than of Colin Powell and Condi Rice, and former movie star Danny...

  • Hollywood Liberals Hate Free Speech

    Actor/Director Tim Robbins hates free speech. So does his long-term partner, Susan Sarandon, as well as Janeane Garafolo, Martin Sheen, The Dixie Chicks, Mike Farrell, Sean Penn, Michael Moore, Harry Belafonte, Ed Asner, Danny Glover, Chrissie Hynde, and other ''anti-war'' celebrities. They only love free speech when they are using it to bash the military, President Bush, and America, both in our own media and overseas. However, when the American consumer, offended by their blame-America first rhetoric, reacts with petitions and boycotts, the words ''blacklist,'' ''undermining free speech'' and ''suppressing dissent'' are used by these celebrities. Hollywood is scared, because...

    Cuba’s REAL Rebels – and DuncesHumberto FontovaSaturday, Feb. 15, 2003Mayor Ed Koch’s recent article jolted me from my seat. It reminded me that Kurt Waldheim was persona non grata in the U.S. because he’d been a Nazi functionary in the Balkans and either participated in or "had knowledge of" Nazi executions of partisans. Actually, that’s fine with me. Even before those revelations, Waldheim always struck me as a sleazy liar, an obfuscator and a rat. No wonder he rose so high so fast at the U.N. He was the perfect U.N. secretary-general. But let me get this straight: "Having knowledge"...

    When I set out to learn something about Harry Belafonte's condemnation of Colin Powell and Condoleeza Rice, I began by googling Belafonte Powell Rice, had no trouble finding the original text, part of a radio interview in San Diego in October of last year. Before the election, you see. A quite strange outburst, it seemed to me, Belafonte referring to those eminences as house slaves. Grotesque. How similar his language to that of Amiri Baraka, once the poet laureate of the entire State of New Jersey but now, evidently, his domain emeritus has been reduced to the City of Newark...

    More and more celebrities using fame to back causes 12/26/2002 Associated Press NEW YORK - From the moment Sean Penn arrived in Baghdad, eager to advance the cause of peace, he was doomed - a dead man talking. He was a celebrity, like so many other celebrities who have waded into the treacherous waters of politics or international relations. So he walked gingerly - he was there, he said, "to learn and not to teach." He avoided reporters. And he was careful not to say or do anything that would cause a meltdown at home. So the Iraqis did...
