When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991 the Cold War that had existed between it and the U.S. since the end of World War Two came to an end, but there was ditritus, loose ends like Cuba and it has taken until now for an end to the diplomatic obstacles whose roots reach back to the Eisenhower administration. In 1960 it had approved a CIA plan to arm and train a group of Cuban refugees to overthrow the Castro regime.
Saturday’s assassination of two New York Police Department officers (whose killer, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, committed suicide immediately afterward ) is a shock which will hopefully shake some sense into protesters chanting, ”Hands Up! Don’t Shoot!” and ”I Can’t Breathe!” It’s rumored he was a fugitive and even posted on Instagram, ” They Take 1 Of Ours…Let’s Take 2 of Theirs,” and ended his tirade with, “This May Be My Final Post ” before going on a murder spree!
For the most part of the Cuban-American community residing in Miami, Florida, the day of Wednesday, December 17th, 2014, will—more likely than not—go down in their history books as a day in infamy, much the same as did December 7th, 1941, for all Americans. The former, when Barack Obama announced the U.S. restoring full relations with Cuba, including the opening of an embassy in the island—a bold move aimed at ending over 50 years of hostility between the two countries—the latter when the Royal Empire of Japan attacked the United States Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor on the island of Oahu, Hawaii.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re aware that Hollywood spent the last week caving to the demands of one of the planet’s worst dictators and human rights violators. By pulling the scheduled release of the movie “The Interview” and subsequently squashing planned retaliatory screenings of “Team America,” Hollywood displayed both its fecklessness and its willingness to acquiesce to the demands of a mass murderer half a world away.
Microbes seem to be overshadowed by larger forms of life, probably because they are so small, but they are still by far the most abundant life form on the planet, constituting some twenty-five times the total biomass of all animal life. There are well over a million different types, mostly harmless environmental microbes. They are in the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat—and when they die they set about deconstructing us. Each ton of soil contains more than 10,000,000,000,000,000, microbes, many of which are employed in breaking down organic material to generate essential nitrates for plants to utilize; every year nitrogen-fixing bacteria recycle 140 million tons of atmospheric nitrogen back into the soil.

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.,—On the heels of their spirited hearing this morning before U.S. District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt, Thomas More Society has reached an agreement with the ACLU of Indiana that the Franklin County Nativity Scene will remain in place this Christmas. The agreement was reached on behalf of the two organizations’ respective clients-Franklin County and the Freedom from Religion Foundation.
A feminist professor of communications at the University of Michigan has become a laughingstock for a poorly-sourced column in a socialist newspaper about the academic basis for hating Republicans. In the article, Susan J. Douglas began with the statement, “I hate Republicans” and declares that “marrying a Republican is unimaginable to me…”
By now, the reader is aware of the concerted efforts being made (and unfortunately quite successfully) by the cultural Marxists and “social justice warriors” to force their particular ideology off onto the rest of the country. This effort certainly alarms a good many people in our nation, I tend to think many more than will let on publicly, due to the mau-mauing that is received by those who cross the subverters of our culture and nation. Yet, most people feel powerless to do anything about it. It seems that the cultural Marxists – the radical feminists, the race-baiters, the Gaystapo, and the rest – have complete freedom to harass and destroy whomever they choose in the pursuit of their goals.
In the horrific aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Ringside Politics bestowed its first “Turkey of the Year” award to then New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin for his woeful leadership, bad judgment and embarrassing statements. Since then, we have been recognizing “turkeys” from both of the major political parties. For example, in 2014, we gave the “Turkey of the Year” award to a very worthy recipient, Republican House Speaker John Boehner.
A grand jury convened by Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams has indicted two Democratic state legislators for accepting bribes in exchange for voting against a voter ID bill, among other legislative actions.
I guess this is now boilerplate for high-profile Americans caught doing anything that is either a) clearly racist; or b) capable of being portrayed as such. Once you step in it, Al Sharpton will be showing up at your door. You can either let him in or he’ll be marching around outside. I’m not sure which is worse, and I’m certainly not sure what any of it accomplishes - except perhaps to serve as a disincentive to do such things in the first place.
If you had any hope that the Democrats’ disastrous midterm would make the President think twice about his agenda - well, you were really kidding yourself. By now you should know that Obama’s losses engender retaliation, not reflection. However, there was a certain segment of the population that thought a staggering defeat might force the administration to reassess its radical plans.
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Though they preside over the world’s most important nation, our leaders in Washington can be startlingly oblivious to the audiences beyond our shores that watch and listen closely to whatever we say or do.
On a day when hackers working for North Korea managed to shut down the release of an American movie, on American soil, by threatening terrorist attacks on American theaters, one might have supposed that a televised announcement from President Obama would have been all about measures to deter and punish North Korea. At the very least, Obama might have proposed putting North Korea back on the U.S. list of State Sponsors of Terrorism, from which it was removed in 2008 by the Bush administration in a desperate bid to salvage a rotten nuclear deal.

Lawmakers opposed to President Obama’s sudden move to cozy up to Communist Cuba are vowing a full-court press to prevent official diplomatic recognition of the tropical prison republic from going forward.
President Obama has announced his intentions to normalize relations with Communist Cuba, a nation with which the United States has maintained a no-travel embargo for decades. The Latin American island’s current leader, Raul Castro, even suggested that Obama lift restrictions through executive order. Nothing like one dictator egging on another to act on policy without the consent of the governed, or their representatives.
Former President and American patriot John Fitzgerald Kennedy must be rolling over in his grave at the high crimes and misdemeanors committed by Barack Obama in ever-increasing frequency and blatant disregard for law.
Afshin was the prime example of a devoted militant Muslim. As a member of a volunteer paramilitary group, he and his companions would strictly enforce Muslim law, often resorting to inhumane methods that involved the arrest and ill-treatment of innocent Christians. Afshin was taught to be callous towards the regime’s harsh political actions and participated in six executions, heartlessly mocking the helpless victims.
ORLANDO—Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver is urging Florida court clerks to take the advice of their own legal counsel and uphold Florida’s marriage laws. In the 66 Florida counties that are not subject to a recent federal judge’s order ruling natural marriage unconstitutional, the Florida Court Clerks & Comptrollers has advised its members “to follow the advice of our legal counsel and not issue same-sex marriage licenses until a binding order is issued by a court of proper jurisdiction.”
WASHINGTON, —Coptic Solidarity announces the launch of an advocacy campaign seeking the immediate and unconditional release of Mohammed Hegazi. Mr. Hegazi—who goes by his adopted Christian name Bishoy Armeya Boulos—has been the subject of numerous spurious charges and sentences, prolonged detentions and threats to his and his family’s lives. He has been targeted for the mere attempt in 2007 to reflect his personal conversion by applying to formerly change the religious status from Muslim to Christian on his state-issued identification card.
