Cuban dictator Fidel Castro does not want what happened in the Soviet Union and its former satellites in the years 1989-1991 to take place in Stalinist Cuba in the 21st century. Following the lead of what happened in the U.S.S.R., the enslaved people of the Eastern bloc-Warsaw Pact nations threw off the yoke of tyranny and their communist governments toppled one after the other.

Ex-president Jimmy Carter's visit to communist Cuba has renewed the calls for normalization of relations with the workers' paradise from many quarters ­ from statist politicians who have admired Fidel Castro for decades to exporting firms like Archer Daniels Midland, which salivates at the prospect of taking its agribusiness to Cuba ­ all of them placing potential profits above freedom.

The tragic Elian Gonzalez affair, which has been used so skillfully by the Clinton administration (until the violent pre-dawn raid), will be used, mark my words, for the appeasement of Fidel Castro and for trying to establish normal relations with his brutal communist regime.

As we pointed out in Part I of this article, in Cuba all natural resources are at the disposal of the Revolution ­ i.e., Fidel Castro and his ruling elites. Cuban ecologists who speak out are quickly silenced, and so national treasures like the tropical forests of the Ciénaga de Zapata, the marshland areas adjacent to the Bay of Pigs, are being destroyed, and with them, their exotic flora and fauna.

While the Cuban lobby in Congress, led by the Progressive Caucus and the Democratic Socialists of America and even some misguided Republicans, like Rep. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., in an ungodly alliance with the well-financed captains of agricultural industries and mega-corporations (e.g., Archer-Daniels-Midland, Cargill and confreres in the agribusiness industry) (1-3) continue to clamor for opening Cuba to economic exploitation in collusion with Cuba's communist regime ­ a silent degradation and destruction befalls Cuba's once beautiful flora and bountiful fauna.

Immediately after taking the oath of office, President George W. Bush issued four executive memoranda. One of them established a 60-day freeze on the regulations hastily issued by President Bill Clinton before leaving office. The freeze on administrative rules and regulations needs to be extended and converted into a veritable machine of executive repeals not only of regulations but also of actual executive orders.

The trend of enacting public policy by lawsuits went into high gear during the eight years of the Clinton-Gore administration, as frenzied attorney-litigators rolled over increasing numbers of unwary defendants.

Perhaps it is time we turn the ignition off to this litigation locomotive.

In his State of the Union Address, President George W. Bush proposed the formation of a USA Freedom Corps, calling for every American "to commit at least two years ­ 4,000 hours over the rest of your lifetime ­ to the service of your neighbors and your nation."

This will require 80 hours per year for every adult American. On Jan. 29, 2002, at another function, Bush further explained the concept and gave a pitch for the "volunteer" program that will require $560 million from taxpayers by 2003.

"There is a worrying trend in academic medicine which equates statistics with science, and sophistication in quantitative procedure with research excellence. The corollary of this trend is a tendency to look for answers to medical problems from people with expertise in mathematical manipulation and information technology, rather than from people with an understanding of disease and its causes.

As stated in the subtitle of "The Seven Myths of Gun Control," the former editor of Front Page Magazine, Richard Poe, successfully reclaims "the Truth about Guns, Crime, and the Second Amendment" in this magnificent book. With logical arguments and factual information, he rebuts what he identifies as the seven most important myths underpinning gun control and their assumptions.

A Tribute to the CIA on the Death of Bin Laden

The U.S. owes a great debt of gratitude to the men and women of the Central Intelligence Agency who, after 10 years of painstaking intelligence work finally led to the location and death of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan on May 1. Along with the men and women of our military, the CIA has been the protective, security shield of the USA, the guardian of our national security and preserver of our liberty -- all the while remaining in the shadows.

Remembering a U.S. Debacle

April 17, 2011 commemorates the 50th anniversary of America’s disastrous Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba.

During 1960, U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower watched with trepidation the establishment of an authoritarian regime in Cuba unfriendly to the United States, only 90 miles from American shores.

Give Back Peace Prize

Charles Richardson and the Editorial board, “conflicted” as they were, used the Declaration of Independence to justify war against the sovereign nation of Libya.

What can I say? It is like using the Constitution’s welfare clause to justify socialism or the interstate commerce clause to justify and empower an omnipotent, omniscient, all-powerful government, instead of a limited, constitutional one.

Gridlock versus Political Consensus

Now that the Republicans have regained control of the House of Representatives, we hear almost daily cries from the Democrats and their minions in the media about the need to end “gridlock” and establish bipartisan consensus.

Getting US in Line for ObamaCare and Medical Rationing!

The final word from medical pundits is coming out in full force on health care and medical journalism:  We Americans must be prepared, from the top down, to accept drastic medical and health care rationing. Why? Because "the establishment of the rational allocation of finite resources" (translate: the extensive rationing of medical services) will be desperately needed, if universal coverage, socialized ObamaCare medicine is to have a chance to work in this country.

Medical politics during the Civil War

The Civil War's immediate impact was felt mostly in America. It ended slavery, preserved the union, and in time reaffirmed the natural rights of man first proclaimed distinctly by the English physician-philosopher, John Locke (1632-1704). Locke is perhaps the foremost proponent of individual rights in the history of Anglo-American jurisprudence. He wrote that all human beings were equal and free to pursue "life, health, liberty and possessions." He influenced our Founding Fathers immensely:
