I can tell you from decades of and heart-breaking work from our center here in Key West that in the Florida straits every week is shark week
According to a CNN report by Jake Tapper the CIA and the U.S. State Department may have been trying to supply Syrian jihadists with Libyan arms from Benghazi when the operation blew up in their face last September.
At a ceremony in Havana last week, UNESCO (U.N. Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization) honored Che Guevara by enshrining his writings in its hallowed “Memory of the World Register.”
A North Korean ship trying to sneak missiles through the Panama Canal after leaving Havana was seized by Panamanian authorities this week. Somebody tipped off the Panamanians that the vessel was carrying illegal drugs.
Paula Deen occasionally used the N-word, we’ve recently learned. For this she was tarred and feathered, drawn and quartered, and fed to the ‘gators.
All the “POPS!” and “BANGS!” from fireworks had my single (for the time) mother edgy. Firing-squads had been murdering thousands of Cubans ‘round the clock. Other thousands of Cubans waged a lonely and hopeless guerrilla war against the massively-armed forces of Soviet proxies Che Guevara and the Castro brothers. (All this 90 miles from U.S. shores.)
The British government gives no indication that in the process of “promoting her father’s ideals” of glory Aleida Guevara presented the slightest offense to Britain’s “standards and values.”
June 14th marked Ernesto Che Guevara’s 85th birthday. Yet amazingly, no celebrations were reported by the Obama campaign precinct-captain who in 2008 decorated her Houston office with his famous visage.
Protecting U.S. diplomats from terrorists on foreign soil is one thing. Protecting terror-sponsoring diplomats on U.S. soil quite another. Our State Department is currently under heavy fire for failing at the former.
Now that the media and political dust has settled regarding the Boston bombing investigation, a failure by our intelligence agencies to properly “track” the Tsarnaev brothers seems like an inescapable factor.
This week the FBI announced a $1 million reward for "information leading to the apprehension" of Joanne Chesimard also known as Assata Shakur who they named a "Most Wanted Terrorist." Chesimard is the first woman to make the FBI’s list.
“More than four decades after the first Earth Day,” declared President Obama in an address this week, “millions of Americans have answered the call to protect the environment.
On April 22nd, 2000 the U.S. Dept. of Justice violated the U.S. constitution at the whim and behest of a Stalinist dictator that the very U.S. Dept. of State officially condemns as a “State Sponsor of Terror.”
"Wimps,” sneers Michael Moore in his book Downsize This, referring to men (and boys, some as young as 16) who 52 years ago this week hit a Cuban beach now known as the Bay of Pigs.
“The Negro is indolent and spends his money on frivolities and drink, the European is forward- looking, organized and intelligent…The Negro has maintained his racial purity by his well known habit of avoiding baths.”
Beyonce and Jay-Z are celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary in Havana this week as the official guests of a regime busily beating and arresting black civil rights activists known as the “Rosa Parks Civil Rights Movement.”
When it came to thundering against the “Yankee imperialists!” Hugo Chavez sure talked a good one. But despite his bluster and monkeyshines he wasn’t crazy enough to lift a finger against his top customer, or even wish him (genuine) harm. It’s impolitic to reveal, but the U.S. is –by far--the biggest customer for Venezuelan oil. Hugo Chavez was our fourth largest oil supplier, behind only Canada, Mexico and Saudi Arabia.
Events this week showed that in the pantheon of heroes for America’s liberal elite Hugo Chavez was a pathetic D-lister. The Venezuelan buffoon never amassed even a teeeeeenzy fraction of Fidel Castro’s U.S. celebrity, tycoon and politician fan-base.
This week some “Latinos” in Florida detected an “ethnic slur” on the wall of the ritzy South Beach Hotel W’s lounge. Within minutes all hell broke loose. A few stormed over to the manager and DEMANDED it be taken down, promptly and ceremoniously!
"Elian is now where he belongs." (Senator Chuck Hagel after Elian Gonzalez was shanghaied at U.S. gunpoint from his American family at Fidel Castro’s command and without a warrant.)
