Fresh row over mysterious sickness affecting US diplomats in Cuba

When a mystery illness rippled through the US embassy in Cuba in late 2016, the diplomatic fallout was rapid.

The US slashed the number of people at its Havana mission and expelled 15 Cuban diplomats after at least 24 American staff and family reported a mix of headaches, dizziness, eyesight, hearing, sleep and concentration problems.

Many of the affected diplomats said their illness came on after they heard strange noises in their homes or hotel rooms. Some reported that the sounds – which ranged from grinding to cicada-like to the buffeting caused by an open car window – appeared to be directed at them, and that their symptoms abated when they moved to another room.

Now, the dispute over the cause of the episode has spread into the medical world, where some doctors and scientists are furious with a situation they believe is being spun for political gain.

Gun control? How about Imam control?

As the world frets about Islamophobia – it’s the Jews who are getting killed.

What happens in the mosque does not stay in the mosque.

So don’t be amazed if you learn that the Parkland, Florida, high school murderer was influenced by messages coming from any number of imams throughout the United States.

He didn’t do it on his own…and even if he did…the word is out…in America…kill Jews.

Paul Sperry at the New York Post tells how radical USA imams are given license to incite. Listen to Sperry’s opening paragraph –

“Muslim clerics are threatening the lives of Jews from the pulpits of American mosques, and they are doing it with virtual impunity, say former US law-enforcement officials who worry that the rhetoric could lead to violent attacks.”

Joe McCarthy and Lillian Hellman: The Hated Patriot vs. the Beloved Commie

Over half a century after the “Red Scare,” playwright and memoirist Lillian Hellman, whose name is often coupled with her adversary Senator Joe McCarthy, seems to have emerged relatively unscathed in the court of elite progressivist opinion despite the exposure of her manifold fabrications and deceptions. The liar, it appears, is the incarnation of a higher truth. Such is the power of the press and the cultural salience of left-wing attitudes in America.

Mexi-Mouth.Con

Just another day in Mexico.

Vincente Fox fumes at Trump but ignores Mexican government violence.

After the 2016 election, former Mexican president Vincente Fox posted a video with a sign reading “Mexico will not pay for the f—– wall.” Last October, Fox said “Donald, you suck so much at this job” and compared the president to a “worn-out baseball glove gripping a turd.” After the recent Florida high-school shooting Fox ramped up the rhetoric on HBO’s “Real Time” with Bill Maher.

“When you speak out of the White House this aggressive, violent language, when you discriminate, when you’re a racist, that’s what you get,” said Fox. “We need harmony, we need love, we need happy communities, and those concepts don’t come out of his mouth.”

And so on.

Caroline Glick: Unlike Obama, Trump Walks the Walk on Russia

In her daily press briefing Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders rejected the contention that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of 13 Russian nationals for interfering with the 2016 election proves the Trump administration is soft on Russia.

To back up her point, Sanders drew a distinction between former president Barack Obama’s policies towards Russia and President Donald Trump’s Russia policy, and insisted Trump has been much tougher on Russia than Obama was.

Sanders was right.

Amazing New Breakthrough to Reduce Mass Shootings!

As fun as it is to ridicule the FBI for devoting massive resources to chasing down Hillary Clinton’s oppo research while blowing off repeated, specific warnings about school shooter Nikolas Cruz, we’ve put a lot on the agency’s plate.

We’re hauling in nearly 2 million manifestly unvetted Third World immigrants every year, leading to a slew of FBI “Watch Lists” with a million names apiece. In 2015, Director James Comey said that there were ISIS investigations in all 50 states — even Idaho and Alaska! And that’s just one terrorist organization.

Toxic Liberalism Created Nikolas Cruz

America’s inexorable decline continues.

After watching the horrific events unfold last week at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida — and seeing that it was a former student, a young man named Nikolas Cruz, who perpetrated the massacre — can anyone honestly argue that Western civilization is not in decline?

7 Terrible Liberal Gun Control Arguments … And How To Beat Them

I argue for a living. I often deal with hacks, liars, and agenda-driven fanatics. But never in a quarter century of being in court rooms have I faced such a blizzard of constitutional illiteracy, technical ignorance, flabby reasoning, and outright lies as I have dealing with people who think our Second Amendment rights are up for debate.

Second, Third, and Fourth Chances—at What Price?

Murderers will continue to slip through our fingers if deincarceration proponents have their way.

Last November, a deranged 26-year-old man, Devin Patrick Kelley, opened fire on worshipers inside a church in Sutherland, Texas, killing 26. High-casualty mass shootings are tragic in human terms but anomalous statistically, at least in terms of the portion of total U.S. homicides that they represent. The vast majority of murders, which take place disproportionately in America’s low-income and minority neighborhoods, don’t get nearly the same attention. The Texas church shooting does have an important point of commonality with the majority of American murders, however: its perpetrator had a troubling criminal record. The deincarceration movement, which would return thousands of convicts to American streets, presents a threat to public safety. Repeat offenders already commit a substantial portion of the nation’s violent crime—according to one study, 53 percent of killers have at least one prior felony conviction. They will be walking the streets in greater numbers if deincarceration advocates have their way.

Nikki Haley savages UN for slamming Israel & turning blind eye to ‘horrendous’ problems in Middle East

US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley torched top Palestinian officials in a blistering speech during a meeting of the UN Security Council.

Haley did not flinch in her direct response to the slight by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas who walked out of the chamber before her remarks, and in her direct shot at top Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat who had told her to “shut up” about criticism of Abbas earlier this month.

North Korea canceled planned meeting with US Vice President, Mike Pence

Mike Pence and North Korean officials had planned to meet secretly during the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, but Pyongyang scrapped the talks after the US vice president denounced abuses from the “murderous regime,” US officials said Tuesday.

Pence did not interact with the North Koreans even though he was seated in the same box as them at the opening ceremony of the Games on February 9 – nor did he shake hands with the North’s ceremonial head of state Kim Yong Nam during an earlier leaders’ reception.

The North Koreans, who had sent Kim Yong Nam and leader Kim Jong Un’s sister Kim Yo Jong to the Games, backed out of the planned meeting after Pence announced Washington would soon unveil its “toughest and most aggressive sanctions” against Pyongyang.
