COLUMN OF THE WEEK
Investor’s Business Daily  3/23

In one of his last acts in Havana, President Obama threw out a false equivalency between the American Revolution and Cuba’s 1959 communist takeover. What are we to make of a U.S. president who embraces such hoary Marxist equivalencies?

In his Tuesday address to the Cuban people, Obama declared that the communist takeover that led to the Castros’ 57-year dictatorship was a “liberation movement,” same as America’s 1776 revolution. Obama’s well-known for his false equivalencies, but this one stands out for its idiocy. “Here’s my message to the Cuban government and the Cuban people,” Obama said.”The ideals that are the starting point for every revolution, America’s revolution, Cuba’s revolution, the liberation movements around the world, these ideals find their truest expression, I believe, in democracy.”

It must have drawn a stifled horse-laugh from Cuban military dictator Raul Castro.

Because the fact is, the American Revolution — whose courageous patriots pledged “to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our Sacred Honor” — wasn’t anything like the Castroites’ 1959 communist takeover. The latter was a gang of thugs’ brutal destruction of a weak democracy with the sneaky aim of installing a totalitarian tyranny. The American patriots of 1776 were all about a free press, a fiery and open interplay of ideas, and the bravely signed names of 56 men of liberty standing up for what they believed in.

The bearded Castroite revolutionaries were a different beast altogether. They claimed to favor democracy as part of their Orwellian Newspeak, making use of willing media toadies such as New York Times correspondent Herbert Matthews to fool U.S. policymakers. But for those on the ground, the Castroite takeover was nothing but a brutal leftist oligarchy intent on installing a communist agenda and turning Cuba into a Soviet satellite. From the very beginning, the Castroites and their so-called revolution had absolutely no democratic ideals. None.

Raul himself was a leading communist party member from the very start, and his brother Fidel ripped the false mask of democracy off to reveal his true communist face once he entrenched himself as the Maximo Lider and couldn’t be thrown out. The Castroites, including the dictator who stood at Obama’s elbow as he spoke, shot their way to power and have since turned Cuba into a totalitarian hellhole.

To compare the U.S. to Cuba is odious. Did George Washington shoot dissidents by firing squad in summary executions to assure his supremacy of power? Did Washington imprison thousands, including teenagers, executing many into open-pit mass graves as now-vaunted “revolutionary” Che Guevara did, leering like a psychopath? Such were the accounts of survivors interviewed by writer Humberto Fontova and described in his 2005 book, “Fidel: Hollywood’s Favorite Tyrant.”

Did Jefferson load up the dungeons with political prisoners? Did Washington expropriate private property of political opponents, right down to their wedding rings? Did John Jay end freedom to travel? Did Madison sic turba mobs to throw eggs and excrement against dissidents in their homes? Did Adams drive millions from their homes to uncertain fates on leaky boats? Did Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton default on billions of dollars of debt of hated creditors, as Castro did? Exactly the opposite. That’s the real record of the Castro “revolution.”

And for that reason, there is so much wrong with what Obama said in attempting to equivocate the two revolutions. To put the two events in the same sentence is an insult to the U.S. and all the freedom and prosperity its revolution achieved, against the horrific failure of Castro’s communism.

Executions in Saudi Arabia reach ‘frightening’ rate as 70th prisoner in 2016 is killed

It is a fact that Arab/Islamic culture highly values honor and pride and has little tolerance for those who dishonor Islam and Islamic "family values." Because honor is so vital in Islamic culture, a whole section in Islamic law is dedicated to forgiving and not prosecuting certain murders when they are linked to honor, such as the killing of adulterers and apostates. Sharia has harsh punishment for those who dishonor Islam or deviate from its values and commandments……The true reason there are no "moderate" Muslim armies killing ISIS terrorists.

With the mainstream media focused on Donald Trump´s political antics, they have mostly ignored the question of whether Hillary Clinton is ethically fit to be president. Not only is Clinton a documented liar, but she could make history as the first major party candidate to face a federal criminal prosecution.

Schlafely:  As Republicans prepare to cast their first presidential ballots in Iowa and New Hampshire, the field remains dominated by “outsider” candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, while Establishment favorites Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, John Kasich and Marco Rubio have been unable to advance to the finals. Will the Republican kingmakers and consultants who picked every nominee since Reagan (Bush, Dole, Bush, McCain and Romney) step aside to let the grassroots, also known as the “base,” work its will this year? After months of waiting for Trump to self-destruct, the Washington-based Republican Establishment has finally found a way to take back control.
