America’s Communist Program

by
Throughout the Cold War, the U.S. national-security state told the American people that it was necessary for America to go over to the dark side in order to combat the threat of communism and the Soviet Union. By that, they meant adopting policies and practices employed by the communists. It was a mindset akin to fighting fire with fire. That’s ...

The Cuban Embargo Destroyed American Freedom

by
In my article “Why Is the Cuban Embargo Still in Place?” I pointed out the horrific suffering that U.S. officials have intentionally inflicted on the Cuban people for more than 50 years with their cruel and inhumane economic embargo.

For example, three days ago a New York Times editorial pointed out that China, which had challenged the ...

Trump Exposes Gitmo Hypocrisy

by
In his inimitable way, Donald Trump has stirred up the mainstream establishment again, this time with a remark on Gitmo. In response to a reporter’s question, Trump said that he would be “fine” with prosecuting American citizens in the Pentagon’s tribunal system at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Not surprisingly, the mainstream press is going ballistic but, in the process, is also ...
