Europe’s Immigration Crisis Proves Not All Cultures are Equal

Masses of people are leaving countries in the Middle East and North Africa and streaming into Europe for the chance of a better life. It’s an enormous tragedy. More than four million refugees have come out of Syria since 2011 because of its civil war. How did such a disaster happen? No one takes a […]

Cuban Embargo Helped Those it was Intended to Hurt and Hurt Those it was Intended to Help

In the sequel to the film The Godfather, Michael Corleone travels to Cuba during the pre-Castro, pre-Cuban embargo days to finalize some “business” deals with Hyman Roth(stein). “All reports were enthusiastically optimistic,” Doug Casey writes, “but he begged off after witnessing a street fight in which one of Castro’s rebels didn’t hesitate to sacrifice himself to […]

Obama Hates the Police But Seems to Love a Police State Like Cuba

By now, we all know that Obama is going to normalize relations with Cuba. He plans to reopen and Embassy there for starters. I’m sure there are plenty of vacant buildings in Havana that the United States could renovate at very little cost, but what do you bet we will build, from the ground up, a veritable palace to house […]

Obama Courts Cuba’s Communists While Shunning Our Allies

Once again Comrade Barack Obama has shown his true colors. In his early autobiography, Dreams from My Father, Obama seems to brag about surrounding himself with socialists and Marxists. His dearest mentor was Frank Marshall Davis, a known socialist activist. Some of Obama’s appointees have been socialists. Since assuming residence in the White House, Obama […]

ISIS Recruiting in Ferguson

Disenfranchised blacks have sought ways to advance their cause by joining groups that promise to be the remedy for injustices done to them. This is not a new phenomenon. Communists promised a social and political utopia, and millions joined the cause. Its revolutionary rhetoric and calls for economic justice led people to believe that utopia […]

White Guilt, Common Core, and Howard Zinn

A few miles up the road from my house there is a prestigious private school. The average schlub like myself could not — and now knowing what I know — would not send my children there. The prestigious Derryfield School “educates” students, grades 6 through 12, and costs in excess of $28,000 per year. It […]

Florida Man Example of Immigration Inefficiency to the Extreme

In 1965, thousands of Cubans fled the communist regime in Cuba. Among them was the Hernandez family. Mario Hernandez was 9 years old at the time. Like most of the Cuban refugees at the time, Mario was given legal status to stay in the US and a Social Security Number, but not citizenship. When his […]

Liberal Writer Defends Communism

Liberals still have a soft spot for Communism. They believe that Communists needed more time to ensure its success but the evils of capitalism thwarted its forward progress. “Salon’s Jesse Myerson published an article, ‘Why you’re wrong about communism: 7 huge misconceptions about it (and capitalism),’ that attempted to deny the scale of communism’s mass […]

There are Marxists in Your Church Ready to Pick Your Pocket in the Name of Jesus

My article on the inauguration of Bill de Blasio caused one Facebook reader to take me to task for identifying the newly sworn in mayor as a Marxist. When a politician starts talking about “income inequality” and promises to use the authority and force of government to “correct” it, that person is a Marxist, and […]

Marxist NY Mayor de Blasio has Multi-Millionaire Bill Clinton Swear Him In

Bill de Blasio is the new Marxist mayor of New York City. He ran on the Marxist platform of “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need” as defined by the State who creates more needy and dependent people with every new law it passes to thwart entrepreneurial success and tax […]

What President Obama and Cuba’s Raul Castro Have in Common

You may not have seen the article about Communist Cuba leader Raul Castro and the comment he made about entrepreneurship. Cuba is so bad off economically that the pure Marxist ideological dystopia is a test case for why Communism is inherently self-destructive for those it claims to help but beneficial for its administrators. But Raul, […]

There’s Nowhere to Run From the Culture Wars

I was speaking to a customer at my office last week about our nation’s growing culture wars. He is as conservative as anyone and fairly well read. He comes by to pick up supplies every once in a while and invariably our conversation turns to politics. That day, we discussed everything from incandescent light bulbs […]
