Lee Harvey Oswald Was No “Patsy”

by Humberto Fontova on Saturday, November 9th, 2013

This is article 114 of 141 in the topic History

Of all the people I interviewed in New Orleans regarding the Kennedy assassination, Carlos Bringuier was the one I trusted most. I could see in his eyes he was always telling me the complete truth.” (Oriana Fallaci, L, Europeo, 1969.)

“The skinny guy walked into my store and started looking around,” recalls Carlos Bringuier about the afternoon of August 5, 1963. “But I could sense he wasn’t a shopper. Sure enough, after a few minutes of browsing he came up and extended his hand. “Good afternoon,” he said. “I’m Lee Harvey Oswald.”

In 1963 the CIA regarded the Directorio Revolucionario Estudiantil (DRE) “the most militant and deeply motivated of all the Cuban exile organizations seeking to oust Castro.” Carlos Bringuier was their representative in New Orleans. It was DRE agents who infiltrated Cuba and brought out the first reports of Soviet missile installations–to the scoffs of the White House’s Best and Brightest. It took two months for anyone to finally take them seriously. A U-2 flight then confirmed every last detail of what the DRE boys had been risking their lives for months to report.

“Oswald approached me because my name was so often linked to anti-Castro activities in the local (New Orleans) news,” recalls Bringuier. “He even jammed his hand in his pocket and pulled out a roll of bills, offering to contribute to the anti-Castro cause. I was suspicious and declined, but he kept blasting Castro and Communism in very colorful terms the whole time he was in the store. He returned the next day, snarled out a few more anti-Castroisms and dropped off his training manual for the anti-Castro fight, Guidebook for Marines.”

Two days later Bringuier was astounded to spot Oswald a few blocks away from his store distributing Fair Pay for Cuba pamphlets. Carlos approached, accepted a pamphlet, ripped it to pieces and a scuffle ensued. The cops arrived, the scuffle made the news, and a few days later Bringuier and Oswald debated on New Orleans radio and TV.

Dozens of books, movies, articles and TV specials depict these events. What they DON’T depict is how, between their scuffle and debate, Bringuier and a friend Carlos Quiroga turned the tables on Oswald. Posing as a Castro-sympathizer eager to join Oswald’s Fair Play for Cuba Committee, Quiroga (who had not been in the store or involved in the scuffle) visited Oswald at his home and they commiserated for hours. “You read everyplace that Oswald was dumb, a flake, a patsy, a set-up,” says Bringuier. “Nonsense. He was a smooth operator and spoke fluent Russian.”

Quiroga noticed that Oswald’s living room was filled with Fair Pay For Cuba Committee literature. From one stack Oswald pulled an application to join the Committee and offered it to Quiroga. Yet during the Warren Commission circus The Fair Play for Cuba Committee repeatedly denied that Oswald had any links with them.

Among the things that caught Quiroga’s eye during his visit was Oswald speaking Russian with his wife and daughter. “Its good practice,” explained Oswald. “I’m studying foreign languages at Tulane University.” He was lying. Also keep in mind the date: this was 3 months before the assassination. Oswald’s stint in Russia was virtually unknown at the time.

Video evidence that Anthony Weiner is winning the hearts and minds of NYC voters

by Doug Powers on Thursday, September 5th, 2013

This is article 356 of 374 in the topic Elections

Did I say “winning”? I meant “totally just lost”… sorry:

Just when it looked as if things couldn’t get any worse for Weiner, who clocked in with 7 percent support in the latest poll of the New York City mayor’s race, they did just that when video surfaced Wednesday of Weiner engaging another man in a heated argument.

Exiting a bakery, a confrontational Weiner doubled back to engage a man who had criticized him.

Weiner translation: “Happy Rosh Hashanah!”

It’s getting so a married man can’t even tweet other women pics of his junk and then run for political office without voters getting all judgmental on him.

Weiner is mounting a delusional defense, saying he only got angry because the guy verbally attacked him after Weiner took a bite of “honey cake,” which is either a dessert at that deli or the name of Carlos Danger’s female sidekick (also played by Anthony Weiner).

Updating the dead girl, live boy rule

by Drew McKissick on Friday, August 2nd, 2013

carlos dangerFormer Democrat Governor Edwin Edwards of Louisiana gave the political world what has since become known as the “dead girl, live boy rule” of politics when, en route to his 1984 election to a third term, he estimated his chances by saying “the only way I can lose this election is if I’m caught in bed with either a dead girl or a live boy”.

It’s a metaphor for doing something so insanely stupid as to upend politically reality, or at least getting caught doing it. As another former Louisiana Governor Earl Long put it in the movie Blaze, “A politician’s got to be discreet in his indiscretions”.

But being discreet is getting tougher.

Since the dawn of the Internet, along with email and its spawn text messaging, a smart politician with any survival instincts has to know that anything sent to anyone – no matter how trusted they may be at the moment – can one day pop up on the front page of the newspaper, show up on TV, or in the email in-boxes of every voter in their district. Many a job has been lost on account of the “reply all” button.

Further, thanks to the ubiquitous smart phone, virtually everyone everywhere is equipped with a handheld digital camera and voice recorder that can quickly capture that obscene rant at a constituent, or the discreet exit from the no-tell motel with that hot new intern, and post it on Facebook in a matter of seconds.

Despite that, human nature is what it is, and people continue to do dumb things. Add that to a culture that continues to chase the lowest common denominator and you end up with a lot of unfortunately “candid” moments and busted careers. On the bright side, this gives voters a chance to see what they actually got on Election Day, often much to their disappointment.

That said, the “dead girl, live boy rule” has been more than adequate to cover the idiocy of politicians of all stripes up to this point. But every now and then someone comes along who does something so colossally and epically stupid that rules have to be re-written to account for it.

Clearly it’s one thing to get caught doing something foolish, but it’s something else to willfully and repeatedly do so in a self-absorbed, sociopathic and exhibitionist way, especially after you’ve already been busted and drummed out of office for doing it once before. Which brings us to the latest case of Anthony Weiner and what I’ll call the new “Carlos Danger corollary”, which covers using technology in an insanely moronic and reckless way – like taking pictures of yourself naked and intentionally sharing them with someone in a format that is just one mouse click away from being front page news.

So here’s the updated rule: never get caught with a dead girl or a live boy; or take pictures of your junk and send them to people. Politicians, take note.

Now that it’s becoming so much easier to get caught, we’ve got an increasing number of politicians who want second chances; a trail blazed by Bill Clinton and followed by many more ever since.

Anthony Weiner on New Scandal: Hey, I Told You I Was a Disgusting Creeper, and That Was Confirmed Again Today

by Doug Powers on Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

Even before this story was confirmed I figured it was true. The online name “Carlos Danger” has such an excruciatingly high douche-factor that one of the few places it could lead would be to Weiner:

New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner confirmed the authenticity of new lewd, sexually charged online chats that were posted by a nightlife website over the past day.

Nightlife site “The Dirty” posted images of conversations that allegedly came from Weiner to a 22-year-old woman under the pseudonym “Carlos Danger.”

“I said that other texts and photos were likely to come out, and today they have,” Weiner said in a statement released by his campaign Tuesday afternoon.

He informed us previously, and he was right. Add “honesty” and “accuracy” to his campaign platform.

This latest story isn’t part of Weiner’s first batch of trouble either. The above conversations took place after he resigned from Congress.

There is simply not enough shame to make that guy just go away.

All we can do now is sit back and eagerly await tomorrow’s NY Post headline.

“Don’t Shoot!—I’m Che!” (A Glorious Anniversary)

by Humberto Fontova on Saturday, October 6th, 2012

This is article 812 of 1244 in the topic International

Forty five years ago this week, Ernesto “Che” Guevara got a major dose of his own medicine. Without trial he was declared a murderer, stood against a wall and shot. If the saying “What goes around comes around” ever fit, it’s here.

“When you saw the beaming look on Che’s face as his victims were tied to the stake and blasted apart by the firing squad,” said a former Cuban political prisoner to this writer, “you saw there was something seriously, seriously wrong with Che Guevara.”

As commander of the La Cabana execution yard, Che often shattered the skull of the condemned man (or boy) by firing the coup de grace himself. When other duties tore him away from his beloved execution yard, he consoled himself by viewing the slaughter. Che’s second-story office in La Cabana had a section of wall torn out so he could watch his darling firing-squads at work.

A Rumanian journalist named Stefan Bacie visited Cuba in early 1959 and was fortunate enough to get an audience with the already quasi-famous “Che” Guevara. Upon entering Castro’s chief executioner’s office, Bacie noticed Che motioning him over to the office’s newly constructed window. Bacie got there just in time to hear the command of FUEGO! hear the blast from the firing squad and see a condemned prisoner crumple and convulse.

The stricken journalist immediately left and composed a poem, titled, “I No Longer Sing of Che.” (“I no longer sing of Che any more than I would of Stalin,” go the first lines.)

Even as a youth, Ernesto Guevara’s writings revealed a serious mental illness. “My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood. Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any vencido that falls in my hands! With the deaths of my enemies I prepare my being for the sacred fight and join the triumphant proletariat with a bestial howl!” This passage is from Ernesto Guevara’s famous Motorcycle Diaries, though Robert Redford somehow overlooked it while producing his heart-warming movie.

The Spanish word vencido, by the way, translates into “defeated” or “surrendered.” And indeed, “the “acrid odor of gunpowder and blood” very, very rarely reached Guevara’s nostrils from anything properly describable as combat. It mostly came from the close-range murders of unarmed and defenseless men (and boys.) Carlos Machado was 15 years old in 1963 when the bullets from the firing squad shattered his body. His twin brother and father collapsed beside Carlos from the same volley. All had resisted Castro and Che’s theft of their humble family farm, all refused blindfolds and all died sneering at their Communist murderers, as did thousands of their valiant countrymen..“Viva Cuba Libre! Viva Cristo Rey! Abajo Comunismo!” “The defiant yells would make the walls of La Cabana prison tremble,” wrote eyewitness to the slaughter, Armando Valladares.

The one genuine accomplishment in Che Guevara’s life was the mass-murder of defenseless men and boys. Under his own gun dozens died. Under his orders thousands crumpled. At everything else Che Guevara failed abysmally, even comically.

During his Bolivian “guerrilla” campaign, Che split his forces whereupon they got hopelessly lost and bumbled around, half-starved, half-clothed and half-shod, without any contact with each other for 6 months before being wiped out.

Nice friends you got there, Harry and Barry

by Michelle Malkin on Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

You know all that Democratic talk about getting big, dirty money out of politics?

Never mind.

Via Reuters:

National fundraising committees for the Democratic and Republican parties, President Barack Obama, and other major politicians have declined to return campaign donations totaling $1.8 million from Houston financier R. Allen Stanford, now on trial for allegedly masterminding a $7 billion Ponzi scheme.

The court-appointed receiver charged with returning money to Stanford investors obtained a federal court order last June against five Democratic and Republican campaigns. But they haven’t returned the money. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee received $950,500; the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), $238,500; the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, $200,000; the Republican National Committee $128,500, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) $83,345.

The contributions to the campaign committees and candidates were given by Stanford himself, Stanford executives, and a political action committee associated with the financier.

The receiver, Ralph Janvey, is also trying to claw back money Stanford donated to individual politicians. The list of his recipients reads like a who’s who of Washington, including President Obama – who received $4,600 from Stanford in his 2008 election campaign – Rep. Pete Sessions (R-Texas), the chairman of the NRCC, and Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee. Janvey is seeking these funds informally, and has not filed lawsuits.

Money has already been returned by House Speaker John Boehner, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Sen. John McCain, among others. But the roughly $154,000 recovered from elected officials is a fraction of the $1.8 million still outstanding.

The $4,600 Janvey is seeking from the Obama campaign reflects only direct contributions from Allen Stanford himself. The total may be as high $31,000 when Stanford’s contributions to Obama’s other campaign committees are included, along with money from senior Stanford executives, and the Stanford Financial Group’s now defunct PAC, according to campaign finance records and an analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics.

…The receiver first wrote to the Obama campaign five days after it gave the money to charity in 2009, asking that it instead be returned to investors.

“If you have already donated such amounts to charity, we request you consider donating an equal amount to the Receivership,” Janvey wrote back on February 23, 2009. “By returning such amounts to the Receivership Estate, you will help reduce the losses suffered by victims of the alleged fraud.”

More tainted cash out West:

Federal investigators have reportedly been handing down subpoenas in the case of a Nevada political operative who allegedly made illegal campaign contributions to politicians like Sen. Harry Reid, and who is also embroiled in a heated legal battle with former business partners that involves accusations about everything from murder threats to jewel thefts.
The case began with a lawsuit by Harvey Whittemore’s former business partners, Thomas Seeno, his brother Albert Seeno Jr. and his son Albert Seeno III, who accused Whittemore of misappropriating and embezzling over $40 million from Wingfield Nevada Group Holding Company LLC, a limited liability company in Nevada.

Whittemore is a lawyer and former lobbyist with political ties all over the state, and he and his wife have contributed tens of thousands of dollars to Democrats and Republicans alike, including Sen. Harry Reid (D), Rep. Shelley Berkley (D), Sen. Dean Heller (R) and former Sen.

Did Castro Get Kennedy?

Colombian narco-traffickers indicted on cocaine conspiracy charges

A federal grand jury this week indicted more than 50 Colombian Nationals for their involvement in drug trafficking from South America to Central America, Mexico and the United States using aircraft and submarines.

These illicit maritime and aviation transportation organizations were directly tied to the Colombian Criminal Bands (BACRIMs) which have emerged to fill a organized criminal drug trafficking void left by the dismantlement of the Norte Valle Cartel and the dissolution of the Autodefensas Unidas de Colombia (AUC), a far-right guerilla organization.

On February 11, 2011, U.S. Attorney Wifredo Ferrer announced the creation of the BACRIM prosecution unit within the Narcotics Section of the U.S. Attorney’s Office, specifically dedicated to dismantling emerging Bandas Criminales in Colombia.  This is the first such unit in the United States specifically designed to target the emerging BACRIMs.

Since then, including Friday’s defendants, more than 100 BACRIM leaders and associates have been indicted by the Southern District of Florida.  Today, Ferrer announced the most recent BACRIM prosecutions:  Operation Seven Trumpets and Operation Under the Sea , resulting in charges against 56 defendants in six separate federal cases.

“Together with our law enforcement partners in Colombia, we have developed a proactive strategy to combat the rise of the BACRIM.  Our common goal is simple: target the BACRIM leadership, dismantle their narco-trafficking operations, and eliminate the threat they pose to the security of the region and the international community ,” said U.S. Attorney Wifredo Ferrer.

DEA Special Agent in Charge Mark R. Trouville added, “These indictments are an excellent example of the results that the partnership between the United States and Colombian law enforcement can produce when combining efforts and resources.  The Drug Enforcement Administration is committed to continuing these efforts and expect to see the downfall of BACRIMs, just as our past joint efforts eliminated other large scale Colombian-based drug trafficking organizations.”

In Operation Seven Trumpets, a total of 34 defendants were charged in five separate indictments for their participation in Colombian-based drug trafficking organizations that used airplanes to transport thousands of kilograms of cocaine from clandestine airstrips located in South America, to clandestine airstrips in Central America, mostly Honduras. The indictment alleges that the United States was the ultimate destination for the cocaine loads.  According to the charges, the drug trafficking organizations used “nominees” to purchase U.S. registered planes.

These “nominees,” in turn, submitted false documentation to the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) to hide the true identity of the purchasers (members of the drug trafficking organization).

Charged in separate cases in Operation Seven Trumpets are Fernando Bertulucci Castillo, 49; Alvaro Suarez Granados, 53; Sammy Echtaya Rios, 44; Alvaro Suarez Montanez, 25; Marco Castillo Bertrad, 53; Miguel Antonio Monroy Ramirez, 61; Oscar Humberto Sierra Pastrana, 48; Oscar Guillermo Sierra Ferro, 20; John Finkelstein Winer, 57; John Fredy Ruiz Garzon, 33; Enrique Moreno Serrano, 65; Carlos Antonio Ortega Bonilla, 61; Luis Felipe Guerreron,58; Oscar Arbelaez Davila, 62; Norberto Castaneda Vargas, 45; Jose Hugo Salazar Buitrago, 55; Monica Liliana Franco Garcia, 37; Fabio Gracia Montes, 64; Jose Eduardo Suaza Vargas, 38; Alejandro Canal Duplat, 43; Cristina Eblin Guerra Moo, 54; Dorian Alejandro Menco Delgado, 33; Jorge Barragan Mejia, 55; Richard Alexander Dixon Figueroa, 41; Braulio Tarquino Blanco Davila, 34; Edgar Fernando Delgado Castro, 56; Jorge Enrique Arrauth Gonzalez, 51; Jaime Garcia Garcia, 61; Carmina Perdomo Barona, 54; Arturo Molano Rodriguez, 59; Jairo Alonso Reina Castillo, 60; Augusto Lozano Garcia, 43; Orlando Gomez Pinzon, 55; and Fernando Sandoval Vasquez, 58.

Obama and illegal aliens: DHS sued for status reports on arrests

by Jim Kouri on Wednesday, August 10th, 2011

This is article 179 of 463 in the topic Immigration

Carlos Montano's case may be only the tip of the iceberg, according to some law enforcement officials. Credit: PT/AFP

A drunken illegal immigrant with an extensive criminal history killed a Benedictine nun last summer in Virginia. News reports quickly surfaced that the Bolivian man, Carlos Montano, had been released by federal immigration authorities on his own recognizance after previous arrests.

In a seldom-seen act, a suburban Virginia county is going up against the powerful forces of the federal government by suing the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for records involving thousands of illegal immigrants who were arrested locally and turned over for deportation.

Officials in Prince William County suspect that many of the criminal aliens, like the drunk driver who killed a nun last summer in their jurisdiction, were simply released under Obama’s backdoor amnesty plan. If so, there could be at least 3,000 criminal illegal immigrants roaming around the county, which is part of the Washington Metropolitan area and has a population of around 400,000, according to a non-profit group that investigates government corruption and waste.

Local officials demand to know what the feds did with the illegal immigrants after county authorities turned them over for removal. The feds refuse to divulge the information and have blown off two public-record requests from the Prince William Board of County Supervisors, according to Judicial Watch.

Board Chairman Corey Stewart told Judicial Watch that it’s frustrating that a local government must resort to suing the federal government to get information that should be public and is vital to local law enforcement efforts. He also expressed disappointment in the “lack of cooperation and transparency from DHS.”

The standoff began when Prince William officials discovered that a drunken illegal immigrant with an extensive criminal history killed a Benedictine nun last summer. News reports quickly surfaced that the Bolivian man, Carlos Montano, had been released by federal immigration authorities on his own recognizance after previous arrests. Montano, who had a revoked license, had twice been charged with drunken driving and had been arrested in separate incidents for other traffic-related offenses.

A few months after the nun’s tragic death Judicial Watch sued DHS for documents related to Montano’s case in an effort to answer an important question: Why did federal authorities free him if he had such a serious criminal history?

Earlier this year the agency provided a heavily edited report that nevertheless provides insight into the matter. Essentially, Obama Administration policies giving immigration officials “broad discretion” relating to detention resources allow them to release illegal aliens like Montano.

In any case, Prince William County has transferred more than 4,000 criminal illegal aliens to DHS custody in the last few years and officials want to know their whereabouts. The program is actually part of a local-federal team effort, practiced by municipalities nationwide, that checks the immigration status of every arrestee. It probably defeats the purpose if the feds are releasing the offenders.

“Georgia’s Immigration laws “Cruel and Shameful,” says Che Guevara fan Carlos Santana

by Humberto Fontova on Thursday, May 19th, 2011

This is article 176 of 463 in the topic Immigration

Multi-Grammy winner Carlos Santana received the Major Baseball League’s “Beacon of Change Award,” this Sunday during its annual “Civil Rights Game” in Atlanta. On his T-shirts, the Mexican-born Carlos Santana honors a Stalinist who abolished all civil rights in Cuba, craved to abolish them worldwide, belittled Mexicans as “a rabble of illiterate Indians,” and craved to nuke Santana’s adopted country– the one that showered him with multiple honors and millions of dollars. (“If the missiles had remained in Cuba we would have fired them at the heart of the U.S.” Che Guevara to Sam Russell of The London Daily Worker, Nov. 1962)

Georgia’s new law that requires many American employers to check if their employees are breaking American laws was denounced by Santana as “Un-American.” “People of Arizona, and people of Atlanta, Georgia,” exclaimed Santana as the stadium crowd (initially) clapped in the Mexican immigrant’s acclamation, “you should be ashamed of yourselves!”

At a post-game press conference this guitarist who at the 2005 Oscars proudly performed the soundscore for Che Guevara’s “Motorcycle Diaries” while proudly wearing a Che shirt, elaborated that: “this law (Arizona’ and Georgia’s) is not correct. This is about fear. It’s a cruel law.”

But no “cruel laws” apparently issued from the Communist who Carlos Santana celebrates in song and attire, who co-founded a regime that jailed more of its subjects than Stalin’s and murdered more people in its first three years than Hitler’s in its first six. In 1959, with the help of KGB agents, Carlos Santana’s t-shirt icon helped found, train and indoctrinate Cuba’s secret police. “Always interrogate your prisoners at night,” Che ordered his goons. “A man’s resistance is always lower at night.” The world’s largest image of Santana’s T-shirt hero adorns Cuba’s Ministry of the Interior, the headquarters for Cuba’s STASI and KGB trained secret police. Nothing could be more fitting.

The man who inspired Santana’s sizzling guitar work on that Oscar night imposed and enforced laws against “Latinos” lifted word for word from those imposed and enforced against Russians by Stalin’s secret police chief Lavrenti Beria during The Great Terror. Che Guevara also cheekily signed his correspondence, “Stalin II.”

So where are the cruel laws, Mr Santana?

Why they’re in Georgia and Arizona, of course.

So who should be “ashamed” for their “insensitivity” to Latino’s suffering?

Why it’s Georgians and Arizonans, of course.

“Che Guevara is all about love and compassion, man,” Santana thus explained his Oscar night fashion-statement during a personal run-in with Babalu Blogger Henry Gomez a few years back.

“Where do you even begin with this type of hippy-dippy, space-cadet drivel?” says Henry, who in fact tried briefly and vainly.

During the mid 60’s the crime of a “rocker” lifestyle (long hair, jeans fondness for “Yankee-Imperialist” rock music) or effeminate behavior got thousands of youths yanked off Cuba’s streets and parks by Castro’s police and herded into prison camps at Soviet bayonet-point. “Work Will Make Men Out of You” read the sign above the camp’s gate, right next to machine gunners posted on the watchtowers.
