Refugee Women, Children, and Infants Water-cannoned to Death Near US Southern Border—But Democrat/Media Complex Glorifies Perpetrator

H/T Town Hall.

Castro has always being a hero to the left and the drive-by media.

Maria Meza is the Honduran migrant who was catapulted to media stardom this week for being in the right place at the right time for an intrepid Reuters photographer who caught the U.S. Border Patrol red-handed in the act of performing its duty by defending the U.S. border.

Best we can tell—despite her claims of “I thought we were all going to die!”–she was not hurt, even slightly, and neither were any of her five children.

Nonetheless the Media/Democrat/Celebrity complex is all over Trump like a cheap suit for his “brutality.”

On the other hand, Maria Garcia is a Cuban refugee (a genuine one, that is) whose son, husband, brother, sister, two uncles and three cousins were wantonly massacred in cold blood while they were all seeking (legal) asylum in the U.S.  In all, 43 (genuine) Cuban refugees were wantonly massacred, 11 of them children. Carlos Anaya was 3 when he drowned, Yisel Alvarez 4. Helen Martinez was 6 months old.

But you’ve never heard of Maria Garcia, have you amigos? Or of the horrific massacre from which she barely escaped with her life, have you amigos?

Didn’t think so. Here I’ll help with a few details:

“This was a very heroic and patriotic act!” Fidel Castro gushed in August 5 1994 while decorating one of his subjects named Jesus Gonzalez as “Hero of the Revolution.”

This “heroism” consisted of ramming his steel-prowed Russian cutter against a flimsy boat full of desperate Cuban escapees—then blasting his water cannon against dozens of women and children clinging desperately to the sinking boat and drowning them.

“MI HIJO! MI HIJO!” Maria Garcia screamed as the water jet slammed into her, ripping half the clothes off her body and ripping Juan’s arm from her grasp. “JUANITO! JUANITO!” She fumbled frantically around her, still blinded by the water blast. Little Juan had gone spinning across the deck and now clung desperately to the tug’s railing 10 feet behind Maria as huge waves lapped his legs.

WHACK!  The steel patrol boat turned sharply and rammed the escape craft from the other side. Then – CRACK! another one crashed it from the front! WHACK!  In Cuba you don’t do something like this without strict orders from WAY above.

“We have women and children aboard!” The escapee men yelled. “We’ll turn around! OK?!”

WHACK! the Castroites answered the plea by ramming them again. In seconds the escapee craft started coming apart and sinking. Muffled yells and cries came from below. Turns out the women and children who had scrambled into the hold for safety after the first whack had in fact scrambled into a watery tomb.

With the boat coming apart and the water rushing in around them, some got death grips on their children and managed to scramble or swim out. But not all. The roar from the water cannons and the din from the boat engines muffled most of the screams, but all around people were screaming, coughing, gagging and sinking.

As mentioned, Maria Garcia lost her son, Juanito, her husband, brother, sister, two uncles and three cousins in the maritime massacre. Please click here for more details and thorough documentation on this massacre.

And all this death and horror to flee from a nation that experienced net immigration throughout the 20th century, where boats and planes brought in many more people than they took out – except on vacation. (Despite what you saw in The Godfather, actually, in 1950, more Cubans vacationed in the U.S.than Americans in Cuba, as befit a nation with a bigger middle class than Switzerland.)

This was obviously a rogue operation by crazed deviants, you say. No government could possiblycondone, much less directly order such a thing! Right?

Wrong. Nothing is random in Stalinist Cuba. As mentioned, one of the gallant water-cannon gunners was even decorated (personally) by Fidel Castro. Perhaps for expert marksmanship. A three-year old child presents a pretty small target. A six-month old baby an even smaller one. “Magnificent job defending the glorious revolution, companero!”

But perhaps my claim that the “Democrat /Media complex glorifies the perpetrator” strikes some of my amigos as unnecessarily hyperbolic? Or as a blatant exaggeration? Or perhaps even as “fake news?”

Fair enough. Let’s have a look:

“Fidel Castro could have been Cuba’s Elvis!” (Dan Rather.)

“Fidel Castro is old-fashioned, courtly–even paternal, a thoroughly fascinating figure!” (NBC’s Andrea Mitchell.)

“Castro’s personal magnetism is still powerful, his presence is still commanding. Cuba has very high literacy, and Castro has brought great health care to his country.” (Barbara Walters.)

“Fidel Castro is one hell of a guy! You people would like him! Most people in Cuba like him.” (CNN founder Ted Turner at Harvard Law School during a speech in 1997. Within weeks CNN was granted its coveted Havana Bureau, the first ever granted by Castro to a foreign network.)

“Fidel Castro…educated (Cuban) kids, gave them healthcare, totally transformed the society.” (Democrat Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders.)

“Viva Fidel! Viva Che!” (Two-time candidate for the Democrat presidential nomination Jesse Jackson, bellowing while arm in arm with Fidel Castro himself in 1984.)

“Fidel Castro is very shy and sensitive, I frankly like him and regard him as a friend.” (Democrat presidential candidate, Presidential Medal of Freedom winner, and “Conscience of the Democrat party,” George McGovern.)

“Fidel Castro first and foremost is and always has been a committed egalitarian. He wanted a system that provided the basic needs to all Cuba has superb systems of health care and universal education…We greeted each other as old friends.” (Former President of the United States and official “Elder Statesman” of the Democrat Party, Jimmy Carter.)

WATCH: Kid Rock Says On LIVE TV, ‘Screw That Joy Behar B*tch!’ – Should He Apologize?

 

H/T Clash Daily.

Bravo Kid Rock Bravo.

Kid Rock has never exactly been ‘politically correct’. Was this fair game or does he owe her an apology?

We all know who Kid Rock is, right?

To call him an ‘anomaly’ is an understatement. He’s a musical superstar from Michigan, just dripping with patriotism, who has somehow found a musical niche that appeals to fans of Rock, Country, and Rap/Hip-hop alike.

He’s a man with some very strong opinions, and he isn’t afraid to articulate them.

And what he said about Joy Behar on live television is no exception.

If that offends you, maybe you need to take a step back and see what he was doing there. It was a joke made to underscore his point. Even HE said so.

What was his point? We’re too damned touchy about our political differences, we can’t even discuss them rationally anymore. He was calling us to turn the political temperature down again so that we can actually look for some common ground.

It was right in the middle of that idea that he said ‘love everybody, except … screw that Joy Behar bitch, everybody but that.’

The crowd cheered after his joke. The guy holding the mic — not so much. When the host backpedaled, Kid Rock explained his joke was just that — a joke.

Now, why did specifically naming Joy Behar in that dig make it funny?

Because she, together with her co-hosts on The View, is one of the chief offenders of habitually hating and cursing anyone who deviates from her ideal political model even a little… teaching her audience to ‘hate’ her ‘enemy’.

To illustrate, here is a quick stroll down memory lane from our own archives:

Corsi finalizing criminal complaint against Mueller

H/T The Hill.

I hope this complaint will get Mueller’s sorry ass jacked up and his law license taken away.

Mueller is more corrupt than Richard Nixon ever was.

Attorneys for conspiracy theorist and conservative author Jerome Corsi are preparing to file a criminal complaint against special counsel Robert Mueller.

Larry Klayman, the founder of the conservative watchdogs Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch who joined Corsi’s legal team this week, told The Hill on Thursday that the document will claim that the special counsel and his team were asking Corsi to lie and commit other criminal violations like witness tampering.

He also said that the complaint could be filed as soon as Thursday or Friday, and would be lodged with Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker, the Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility and the department’s inspector general.

When asked what lie the special counsel had asked Corsi to make, Klayman declined to provide further details,  but pointed to Corsi’s statements claiming that he did not willfully mislead federal investigators during his questioning.Klayman also said that if Mueller were to indict Corsi, it could give Corsi’s legal team the opportunity to challenge the special counsel’s authority.

“I trust that he will be wise enough not to seek an indictment of Jerry Corsi,” Klayman said.

A spokesperson for the special counsel declined to comment. Another attorney for Corsi, David Gray, did not return multiple requests for comment.

Corsi and President Trump’s longtime confidant Roger Stone have both faced scrutiny from Mueller over their communications and statements ahead of WikiLeaks’ release of damaging Democratic emails ahead of the 2016 presidential election.

They have both denied being in touch with WikiLeaks’ founder Julian Assange about the release of the emails.

Corsi revealed earlier this week that he had received a plea deal offer from Mueller, but had rejected it.

In draft court documents obtained by The Hill and other publications, the special counsel alleges that Corsi lied while being questioned by investigators earlier this year.

The documents state that Corsi made the false statement when asked about a July 25, 2016 email sent by an individual – who Corsi identified as Stone – who asked that Corsi look into what emails WikiLeaks possessed and would release ahead of the 2016 election.

Corsi told authorities during the questioning that he had “declined the request from [Stone] and made clear to [Stone] that trying to contact [WikiLeaks] could be subject to investigation,” according to the documents.

However, Corsi did forward the email from Stone to another individual and later responded to him, writing in an email sent on Aug. 2, 2016, “Word is friend in embassy plans 2 more dumps,” referring to Assange.

“One shortly after I’m back. 2nd in Oct. Impact planned to be very damaging,” he continued, according to the documents.

In multiple interviews with The Hill, Corsi has maintained that he did not willfully give false information to Mueller’s team, but did not recall at the time of his questioning what he had said in response to Stone.

Corsi has claimed that he “deduced” that emails hacked from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and written by Clinton campaign chair John Podesta would be released shortly ahead of the presidential election, after emails by Podesta were not included in previous WikiLeaks email dumps.

And Stone has said that he had an inside source that told him that WikiLeaks had damaging information that would disrupt the 2016 election.

Mueller has indicted 12 Russian military officers in the DNC hack.

Corsi has publicly stated multiple times that he was planning on filing a criminal complaint against Mueller, including during an interview with Hill.TV set to air on Friday.

Corsi was a major proponent of the so-called “birther” conspiracy theory, claiming without evidence that former President Obama was not born in the United States. Obama released his birth certificate to counter the claims, which were also promoted by Trump.

Shell Oil President Slams Arrogant Obama for Claiming HE Created America’s Oil Boom

H/T Godfather Politics.

Bathhouse Barry Obama did his best to destroy the oil and coal industry.

President Trump has put them on the road to recovery and growth.

A former president of Shell Oil slammed former President Barack Obama for trying to take credit for America’s oil boom this week.

Obama appeared at Rice University’s Baker Institute on Tuesday and told his audience that he was responsible for creating America’s newfound preeminence in the gas and oil industries.

“You wouldn’t always know it, but it went up every year I was president,” the arrogant ex-president insisted. “That whole — suddenly America’s like the biggest oil producer and the biggest gas — that was me, people.”

But John Hofmeister, the former top man at Shell Oil Company, ridiculed the idea that Barack Obama had anything to do with America’s oil boom.

“The facts are the facts. And, yes, the production did increase throughout his term,” Hofmeister told the hosts of Fox & Friends on Thursday. “But, frankly, he had nothing to do with it.”

“This was production in states like Texas, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Colorado — North Dakota in particular. And these were all state decisions made with industry applications for permits. The federal government had no role,” Hofmeister continued.

Indeed, Hofmeister noted that Obama and his anti-oil administration opposed the oil industry at every turn.

“If anything, he was trying to frustrate the efforts by taking federal lands off of the availability list — putting them just, no more drilling [sic]. He shut down the Gulf of Mexico for a period of six months,” the oil man said.”[He] changed the regulations from an average of 60 to 80 pages per permit to 600 to 800 pages per permit. He also never approved the Keystone XL pipeline after dangling all the potential customers for eight years. And it was in the eighth year when he said no Keystone Pipeline.”

“I would say that he was not a leader when it comes to energy,” Hofmeister concluded.
