Che Obama

"The black is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink" - Che Guevara

Added 3/23 -- Ethan Epstein (Weekly Standard) writes that the Che Obama picture is even worse than it seems...

The building that Guevara's face adorns is home to the Cuban Ministry of the Interior.

Unlike our own Ministry of the Interior, Cuba's is not charged with innocuous tasks like protecting endangered waterfowl. Rather, it operates the National Revolutionary Police, which, in addition to keeping law and order on the streets, harasses and arrests dissidents, and suppresses "counter-revolutionary" activities. In other words, it's Cuba's version of the Stasi.

Limp wristed Obama with his puppet master, Raul Castro --

Upon seeing this photo, Colin Campbell tweeted -- "Ah, the 'ole limp-arm maneuver to thwart a triumphant photo pic."

Among the multitude of Donald Trump's deficiencies as a candidate is his failure to recognize gold-plated opportunities to attack political opponents, unless he is directly attacked himself. When Elizabeth Warren let loose a string of Trump-denigrating tweets, Trump returned the favor by labeling her "The Indian". (Good one). However, when the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, Hillary Clinton, has a week long series of devastating gaffes, as NRO's Stephen Miller writes, Trump is silent. 


In the latest edition of Andrew Klavan's podcast, he discusses Obama's obsequious outreach to Cuba's Castro brothers as well as Kevin Williamson's controversial take on white working class America. Good listening.


Some good Prager University productions --

Larry Schweikart on America's failed Socialist experiment --

Two by George Will -- political correctness, and the speech every college graduate should hear --

Larry Elder asks, "Is America Racist?" --

Former NY Times, Pulitzer Prize winning reporter, Judith Miller asks, "Did Bush Lie About Iraq?" --

John Kasich's Obamacare burden (And it will get worse) --

How David Brooks created Donald Trump (by rejecting the Tea Party) --


While campaigning for his wife, Bill Clinton commented that we should "put the awful legacy of the last eight years behind us." While his statement is true, it's yet another sign that the former president is exhibiting early signs of dementia. One positive feature of senility is uncharacteristic honesty.
