There are Cubans in Syria, and I don’t mean cigars: Cuban military operatives reportedly have been spotted in Syria, where sources believe they are advising President Bashar al-Assad’s soldiers and may be preparing to man Russian-made tanks to aid Damascus in fighting rebel forces backed by the U.S. Gen. Leopoldo Cintra Frias, head of Cuba’s […]

I may be one of the six people on Earth that occasionally find Conan O’Brien funny, but his trip to Cuba is anything but. It doesn’t take O’Brien long to show that he’s a clueless Hollywood dolt ready to go Commie chic to be “cool.” This iconic Che Guevara image was born right here in […]

This year we are continuing our tradition of taking a look back to last year’s predictions.  You would think I would learn each year that making so many predictions just means I have more work to do the following year correcting them. I’m also increasing the odds I’ll be wrong. Some people think I’m just […]

More than 25 years after the Berlin Wall fell, this feels like the last brick to disappear from the relic of the Cold War wall — Chuck Todd (@chucktodd) December 17, 2014 Yep, Chuck Todd really wrote that. Cuba is still an oppressive Communist regime. It’s still an island prison. But Chuck Todd is comparing […]

Could it be that government-run health care is not all that it’s promised to be? I hope the students in Canada don’t riot […]

For others it’s a marathon. My Thanksgiving marathon is two Thanksgiving dinners in the same day. My wife’s family eats early, and […]

Suddenly Senator Russ Feingold has found out that there is wasteful spending in Washington D.C. He is shocked, shocked I tell you, to find out the federal government wastes money. It’s a blatant attempt by Feingold to steal a page out of the late William Proxmire’s playbook. When the town whore suddenly gets religion, perhaps […]

I hear Cuba is lovely in February. The White House acknowledged for the first time Friday that it might not be able to close the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay by January as President Barack Obama has promised. Senior administration officials told The Associated Press that difficulties in completing the lengthy review of detainee […]

Mexico and Cuba have a new plan for emigration to the United States. They’re going to stop it. Well, at least for Cubans. (ht: Owen) The agreement, signed at a ceremony in Mexico City, restricts the main exit route for thousands of Cubans as many travel via Mexico. Mexico’s past reluctance to halt the practice […]
