Red (Stalinist) Harry Bridges

ml“True to form, Harry Bridges was ‘an Australian immigrant and devoted Communist’ both the Roosevelt and Truman administrations tried to deport because he had lied about his Communist affiliation in his immigration papers.” Lloyd Billingsley

“’Pelosi’s Favorite Stalinist,’ ran the headline on his [Muravchik] June 25, 2007 piece in the Weekly Standard.” Ibid

WHEN NANCY MET HARRY

The progressive Democrat Nancy Pelosi showered Stalinists with praise.

“What do the Russians have on Donald Trump?” she said.  “That’s the truth we want to know.”

As Pelosi mounts this surge, the old-line establishment media have shown little if any interest in Pelosi’s own background, particularly as it relates to Russia, the USSR, and the American labor movement.

“Harry Bridges was arguably the most significant labor leader of the twentieth century,” Pelosi wrote in the Congressional Record in 2001, on the 100th anniversary of Bridges birth. Bridges was “beloved by the workers of this nation, and recognized as one of the most important labor leaders in the world” and his International Longshoremen’s and Warehousemen’s Union was “the most progressive union of the time.”

At the time Pelosi’s tribute drew little if any news coverage, but in 2007, when she was calling for unconditional withdrawal from Iraq, it came to the attention of Joshua Muravchik. Then with the American Enterprise Institute, he had been a speaker at the Second Thoughts ConferenceDavid Horowitz and Peter Collier staged in 1987. As a former chairman of the Young People’s Socialist League, Muravchik knew his onions on Harry Bridges. Continue reading

Play the Oil Card

Dark clouds stretch across a refinery as Hurricane Ike approaches the Gulf of Mexico near Houston, Texas“Shale oil is almost a uniquely USA geological phenomenon.” Craig Schwartz

“Shale oil is a revolutionary competitive advantage for America.” Ibid

“Energy independence is hindered because the worldwide market for oil is controlled by dictators and totalitarian regimes that nationalized western oil companies and which manipulate the market thru OPEC.” Ibid

Editor’s Note: Oil is also a major partner in reducing America’s debt viz., ANWR (Artic National Wildlife Refuge). The federal government can hire a small private oil firm to drill this oil with 90% of profits going to reduce the national debt.

 America’s Path to Greatness: Border Adjust Oil

Craig Schwartz,  American Thinker, March7, 2017

America has been blessed by geology. We have an opportunity to be the world’s low cost producers of oil, gas, electrical energy, chemical feedstocks and the building blocks of almost all products of modern life. Combined with our rule of law, individual rights, private property, private capital and a culture of innovation; America truly could be great and secure as never before.

Some background: Shale oil is almost a uniquely USA geological phenomenon. Total worldwide shale oil reserves are estimated to be 4.8 trillion barrels, of which 1 trillion is recoverable, with 77% is located in the USA. For comparison, conventional worldwide oil reserves are 1.3 trillion barrels.

We could be completely energy independent by 2020 — if, and only if, markets are not manipulated by totalitarian oil producing regimes. Continue reading

Hypocrite Raul Castro

“This week [March 11] Raul Castro (co-founder of a regime that jailed political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin’s and murdered them at a higher rate than pre-war Hitler’s) denounced President Trump’s proposed Mexican wall in tear-jerking terms…” Humberto Fontova

Raul Castro Finally Slams President Trump

Raul Castro Finally Slams President Trump
This week Raul Castro (co-founder of a regime that jailed  political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin’s and murdered them at a higher rate than pre-war Hitler’s) denounced President Trump’s proposed Mexican wall in tear-jerking terms:
“The wall that is intended to be build on the northern border of Mexico is an expression of irrationality, not only against this brother country but against our entire region…We express the solidarity of Cuba with the Mexican people and government. (Trump’s proposed trade agreements) “will violate environmental agreements to favor the income of transnational corporations, persecute and deport immigrants generated by the inequality of the distribution of wealth and the growth of poverty caused by the international order imposed.” (Raul Castro, 3/7/ 2017)

So it looks like the Stalinist dictator (whose  own national barrier caused TWENTY-TIMES as many deaths as the Berlin Wall)  finally lifted his self-imposed  gag-order on slamming  President Trump. Alas, half a century into the show, the spectacle of a Cuban dictator and the Democratic/Media complex  crooning duets is much too familiar to generate much applause or even interest.

Granted, under Castroite rule, Cuba (which prior to Castroism was inundated with more immigrants per-capita–primarily from Europe–than was the U.S.) has never had much trouble with immigrants.  Continue reading
