NY Times’ Headline Puts Dictator Castro To Rest: ‘A Man So Large In A Box So Small’

December 6, 2016 by


By Clay Waters ~ New York Times reporter Kirk Semple reported on Cuban Communist dictator Fidel Castro’s funeral from Santiago de Cuba and retained the paper’s soft-soap treatment of Castro’s tyrannical rule: “In Subdued Ending, Cubans Put Castro to Rest” in Monday’s paper. The online headline even quotes one of his Cuban fawners: “Cuba Puts […]

Fidel, ‘Fiery Apostle’! The NY Times, WashPost Soft-Soap Another Dead Communist Dictator

November 28, 2016 by


By Tim Graham ~ The New York Times and The Washington Post demonstrated again Sunday their warm feelings about communist dictators when they die. The Times headline was “A Revolutionary Who Defied the U.S. and Held Cuba In His Thrall.” The Post headline was slightly more balanced: “Revolutionary remade Cuba: Dictator who defied U.S. was […]

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. Our own President Barack Obama opted for washing his hands, choosing […]

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? Trump tells it just as it is: Today, the world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for […]

Colorado Appeals Court Says Baker Discriminated + More – Daily Digest

August 14, 2015 by


The Patriot Post ~ THE FOUNDATION “No compact among men … can be pronounced everlasting and inviolable, and if I may so express myself, that no wall of words, that no mound of parchment can be so formed as to stand against the sweeping torrent of boundless ambition on the one side, aided by the sapping […]

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 […]

The Castro Tyranny Turns Another Year Older

December 31, 2013 by


By Jeff Jacoby  ~ New Year’s Day marks the 55th anniversary of Cuba’s communist revolution. It is the oldest – indeed the only – full-blown dictatorship in the Western Hemisphere.

Fidel Castro: The Quintessential Communist

October 26, 2012 by


By Alan Caruba ~ My foremost memory of Fidel Castro dates to 1961 during the Cuban Missile Crisis when, as a young soldier, the Second Infantry Division at Fort Benning, Georgia was put on full readiness in the event the U.S. had to invade Cuba. I was informed that I would remain in the Army […]

Another American Health Care System Failure

February 3, 2010 by


NOT! If the American health care system ranks below thirty other countries, as one of our commenters recently claimed, why is Danny Williams, the Canadian Premier of Newfoundland, coming to America later this week for heart surgery? Why isn’t he traveling to Michael Moore’s idea of health-care utopia, Cuba? Then again, when Moore made propaganda […]

Obama, Chávez, and Castro – Three of a Kind?

May 11, 2009 by


Gabriel Garnica, Esq. Frankly, I was a bit surprised by all the hoopla over Barack Obama’s friendly exchange with Hugo Chávez at the Americas Summit. After all, since when is it controversial, scandalous or even surprising for “blood brothers” to warmly greet each other? The Three Amigos? Before we go on, it is both fitting […]

El Presidente Obama Es En Fuego

April 26, 2009 by


Satire by Shawn Goodwin. Yes, President Barack Obama is on fire, especially after his highly successful – in his words, anyway – appearance at last week’s Summit of the Americas in Port of Spain, Trinidad. The summit gave Obama the chance to meet and greet several Central and South American leaders, most of whom would […]

Hope And Change

August 6, 2008 by


Once a charismatic & eloquent young leader decided his nation needed change. The people were receptive. He spoke passionately, denouncing the existing system & the press loved him. Nobody questioned his beliefs or who his friends were. He'd help the poor; free medical care, education, justice & equality for all. "I am for hope & change ..." said Fidel.
