AP Pretends That New Cuban President Diaz-Canel Was ‘Elected’

April 20, 2018 by


By Tom Blumer ~ The Associated Press and many of the AP’s colleagues in the establishment press have had a nearly 60-year romance with Cuba’s brutal communist regime.

The Left’s Appalling Whitewashing Of Castro’s Legacy

November 27, 2016 by


By Mike Gonzalez ~ You will hear some people today excuse Fidel Castro’s crimes by begging that he accomplished social goals. Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn have already beclowned themselves on that front. They were merely the first.

Trump Farewells Castro: “Brutal Dictator”

November 27, 2016 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Donald Trump gives Fidel Castro the send-off he deserves. Will the Australian ABC now dry its tears for a dictator – and will Malcolm Turnbull follow Trump’s lead?

April 23, 2015 by


By Dr. Peter Brookes ~ With the “historic” clasp of hands in Panama City, Panama last week with Raul Castro, President Obama took the next fateful step toward normalizing relations with the Western Hemisphere’s most repressive regime.

The Prison Called Cuba

April 21, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ We are told we need to feel sympathy for the Cuban people who have suffered from a U.S. embargo and lack of diplomatic recognition. That ignores a long history of oppression in Cuba no matter who was in charge. Prior to Fidel Castro, Cubans were in the grip of Fulgencio Batista […]
