On the morning of November 17th, 1962, FBI headquarters in Washington D.C. took on all the trappings of a military command post, according to historian William Breuer.

I ask because much of U.S. punditry (on both left and right) dont seem to regard the Cuban-American Republican presidential candidates as either white or Hispanic. And Im pretty sure theyre not black.

Ted Cruz father Rafael was not quite the anti-Batista rabble-rouser Ted claims in his book. So crows the New York Times this week in a major expose titled: Cuban Peers Dispute Ted Cruzs Fathers Story of Fighting for Castro.

Imagine a major story in one of Americas top newspapers on an island in San Francisco Bay named Alcatraz. Now imagine that this story omits mentioning a prison.

Fairy tales certainly came true for Sinatras chum John F. Kennedy. I refer to the Cuban Missile Crisis, 53 years ago this week. More specifically, I refer to the media/academia/Hollywood spin of the crisis, especially its outcome.

Whoops! Sorry for the classic Dog Bites Man headline. Lets try this headline instead: Best we can tell, Democratic presidential candidate Jim Webb has never hailed anything Castroite.

On the 48th anniversary of his death last Friday Time Magazine ran yet another love note to mass-murderer and terrorist Ernesto Guevara, better known as Che. How Che Guevara Didnt Let Asthma Affect His Ambitions, ran the Time headline.

A delighted Mick Jagger just visited the Stalinist nation that criminalized his music and herded many of its listeners into forced-labor camps at Soviet bayonet-point as punishment.

Stalinist dictator Raul Castro was a busy man this week during his whirlwind tour of the city he craved to nuke.

A deafening blast and Soviet bullets ripped apart the head and torso of yet another young Cuban martyr. Albert Tapia was barely 21 years old, typical age for most of Castro and Ches murder victims.

Ann Coulter is under heavy media fire for a very uncouth tweet where she implies that during the debate the Republican candidates were all pandering to Jewish-Americans. The wording of her tweet resembles the title of this article but with Jews in place of Cubans.

Though billed as a protest (to Trump) song by much of the media, Emilio Estefan makes clear hes more flower-child than street-fighting-man. Trump doesnt represent anything to me. Everyone has their opinion, and he can have whatever opinion he wants, as long as he doesnt humiliate my people.

Rafael Alejandro Hernndez is a young Cuban lawyer living in Mexico who knows from firsthand experience what migrants to Mexico go through. Last week he unloaded on Jorge Ramos.

A long time ago in a place far, far away the same Univision who boasts Jorge Ramos as their Walter Cronkite tried blackmailing Senator Marco Rubio into an interview. Will today's front-runner for the Republican nomination get a similar treatment?

The first time Castro leaves Cuba for any nation we have extradition treaties with, he should be detained, arrested and extradited to the U.S. for indictment and trial on charges of murder and terrorism.

(We won the war! Raul Castro, reacting to President Obamas announcement, Dec. 20, 2014.) (The US and Cuba are no longer enemies or rivals but neighbors. And it is time to let the world know that, we wish each other well. Sec. of State John Kerry as the U.S. flag was raised in Havana, Aug, 14, 2015.)

The stake is up, the torch is lit, and the wood is drenched with kerosene. As the crowd forms, the popcorn and beer (actually sushi and Chardonnay for this crowd) vendors set up shop. The excited crowd cranes its neck, looks around, shields their eyes for a better view.

Take Time Magazine (please!) no, seriously. Lets use Time as an exemplar of the mainstream media. Theyve run seven stories on the slaughter (their term) of Cecil the Lion by Dr. Walter Palmer.

Granted, Obama administration spokespersons and the mainstream media (but I repeat myself) describe this weeks event differently than does this column title. Something about a Cuban embassy formally opening? in Washington, D.C. ? If I read these things correctly?

The human rights activist mentioned in this column title is also a Presidential Medal of Freedom winner. More fascinatingly still, hes also black. Even more amazingly, hes a foreign Latino human rights-activist from a nation where recent polls show over half the residents craving to emigrate to the U.S.
