The death of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, who murdered his people and turned Cuba into an isolated island with a sub-Haiti standard of living, was remarked upon in the strangest way by many of our leading media and political leaders. Among progressives and leftists there was sadness and even some eulogies to the great things Castro supposedly accomplished. Others, such as President Obama, made obscure statements devoid of moral clarity about what kind of leader Castro actually was.
A former disciple of radical imam Anjem Choudary reflects on how his childhood traumas and broken home led him into drug use and dealing in his teen years, ultimately landing him in prison. Angry and incarcerated, Jesse Morton was in perfect condition to be radicalized into a committed jihadi.
The Archbishop of Canterbury, leader of worldwide Anglican communion, has made a speech in Paris in which he intimated that the Islamic State might have something to do with Islam. He’s fashionably late to the party but still there before Pope Francis.
Anytime the established media rises up to gang rape a single political figure at the same moment, with the exact same message and phrases, it’s a certainty that,

The Right has been slow to respond to the Left’s surprise attack on Everything Steve Bannon. We never know who the Left is going to character-assassinate next Monday with one voice and identical talking points until it actually happens (though Wikileaks shows us later how meticulously it was planned). Last week it was Steve Bannon, a man who is nothing resembling a Jew hater or a white supremacist. Now, after days of unmitigated leftist hysteria, calmer heads are picking apart the lies.
Apparently an 18-month election campaign with state primaries, public debates, slow elimination of candidates, op-eds, and ultimately a free and open national election by the American people is HORRIFYING!
