Florida’s two senators demanded answers Tuesday after revealing the National Endowment for the Arts paid $45,000 for a traveling art exhibition featuring a portrait of socialist revolutionary Ernesto “Che” Guevara, saying U.S. taxpayers shouldn’t subsidize the idolization of a man involved in “mass murder.” Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott said it was an insult to exiles who lived through the Cuban revolution to see their tax money go to aggrandize Guevara. “Guevara was a sadistic butcher who murdered and tortured innocent people,” they wrote in a letter to NEA Chairwoman Mary Anne Carter. “We do not believe that taxpayer dollars

Comments:

This back-scratching Marxist echo chamber of a so-called arts foundation should have been defunded years ago. They're also demonstrated racist, by modern lights, when you consider their hero terrorist's stated position on black people:
"The Negro is indolent and lazy, and spends his money on frivolities, whereas the European is forward-looking, organized and intelligent." — Che Guevara

I have a Che Guevara shirt. It's the traditional picture with "muerte" stamped across his face.

He also put homosexuals in labor camps. How can these people be so ignorant of history? And they probably all own Che t-shirts.

He was a vicious, personally violent murderer. He specifically enjoyed shooting people in the face from very short range with a large caliber handgun, seemed to literally enjoy blowing their brains out, splattering them all over the place. He PERSONALLY executed many prisoners - because he enjoyed it. Guevarra was a sick, disgusting murderer. Anyone honoring him needs to be told repeatedly that they are supporting s vicious, violent, inhuman monster.

The deranged employee who stabbed four people to death—including three cops—inside a Paris police headquarters had converted to Islam 18 months ago, according to a report. The unidentified, 45-year-old IT worker attacked three members of the police force’s intelligence division Thursday inside two different offices on the first floor, then went into a stairwell and assaulted two women, French TV station BFMTV reported. The man, who fatally injured four people before he was gunned down, had converted to Islam a year and a half ago. Still, police are not treating the attack as a terrorist act,

Antifa took a public-relations hit this week in Canada after activists blocked the path of an elderly woman using a walker as she tried to enter an Ontario college for a talk featuring a conservative politician. The “anti-fascist” protest group was widely denounced over a viral video showing three masked protesters standing in the woman’s way Sunday as she slowly tried to cross the street, accompanied by her elderly husband, while the activists shouted, “Nazi scum! Off our streets!” The event held at Mohawk College in Hamilton, Ontario, featured People’s Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier, a Member of Parliament,

A man who was in the United States illegally has been indicted on federal charges accusing him of kidnapping a 15-year-old Paterson girl and forcing her to perform sex acts as they drove to Chicago earlier this year. Juan Carlos Morales-Pedraza, 33, a Mexican national living in Paterson, pleaded not guilty before a federal judge and he was charged with kidnapping, transportation of a minor, and re-entering the country as a deported alien, federal prosecutors announced Tuesday. Pedraza abducted the girl, who was his neighbor in Paterson, on April 14 as the pair headed to the Midwest, officials allege.

Range Rovers have been shipped from the UK to southern Africa for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's ten-day tour, it was revealed today. The 4x4s were drafted in because organisers at the Palace were unable to locally obtain secure enough vehicles suitable for Harry, Meghan and baby Archie. The cars for the trip were understood to have been offered by Jaguar Land Rover, and were transported at no cost to the taxpayer, the Press Association reports. But the shipping of the cars over a 10,000-mile distance will raise further eyebrows over the couple's green credentials despite them promoting environmental issues.

Disney producers say it’s “safe to say” that its animated children’s series “Star Wars Resistance” has an openly gay couple. Executive producers Athena Portillo, Justin Ridge, and Brandon Auman told fans this week that they are thrilled with the decision to make characters Orka and Flix “an item.” “They’re absolutely a gay couple and we’re proud of that,” Mr. Ridge said during a Coffee With Kenobi podcast, the UK Guardian reported Monday. Disney’s decision comes less than six months after the PBS kids series “Arthur” made a similar move. An episode titled “Mr. Ratburn and the Special Someone” that aired in May

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a new interview scoffed at the unwanted touching allegations against Vice President Joseph R. Biden, saying voters need to “get over it” and vote President Trump out of office. Sitting down with People magazine in a joint interview with daughter Chelsea Clinton, Mrs. Clinton dismissed speculation that women might be less than enthusiastic about voting for Mr. Biden after several women came forward this spring and accused him of unwanted touching. The former vice president has since apologized for putting people in uncomfortable situations. “For goodness’ sake, I’m sorry, I have to jump in

The government’s special program granting a pathway to citizenship for immigrants who are victims of domestic abuse is rife with fraud, according to a new watchdog audit Monday that suggests migrants have figured out how to game the system. Fraud cases have quadrupled this year alone, the Government Accountability Office says, and now total about 13% of new applications from those who “self-petition” for protections under the Violence Against Women Act. Claiming abuse can be a fast track to citizenship, and at the very least usually serves as a shield against deportation and leads to immediate work permission for immigrants who

Chelsea Clinton’s current strategy for selling her latest book is to attack President Donald Trump. After already targeting the president on Twitter, she had more to say while appearing on “The View.” “He’s the greatest scam in American political history,” she said, adding that “his whole life has been a scam.” Chelsea was appearing on the program with her mother Hillary, who co-wrote the new book with her daughter. Chelsea previously got attention for replying to a tweet the president sent out calling the impeachment inquiry into his phone call with the Ukrainian president “the greatest scam in the history of American politics.”

The column opens by noting that “the criminal behavior to which Trump has admitted is much more grave than anything alleged or unearthed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and much of what Mueller revealed was impeachable,” before outlining the specifics of the Ukraine scandal currently presenting an existential threat to his administration.

The great triumph of recent American politics is for the people of your fine country to have elected as president a man who is the precise embodiment of what supercilious Europeans think Americans are really like. Pig-ignorant, arrogant, jingoistic, contemptuous of foreigners, loud-mouthed, badly dressed and irredeemably bumptious. So consuming is the European antipathy toward Donald Trump — he’s never read a book! He eats steak with ketchup! — that it afflicts leading politicians across our continent, people who would be better advised to button it a while and show a little bit of diplomacy to the leader of the free world. But they can’t: the contempt always bleeds through.

The Deep State spook filed a complaint on August 12 based on second-hand knowledge and hearsay of Trump’s July 25 phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, so Schiff had knowledge of the accusations and worked discreetly for up to two weeks.Schiff is now claiming he has never met with or spoken to the whistleblower — in fact, Schiff is claiming he doesn’t even know the identity of the whistleblower!

The tactic is meant to make it more difficult for police to identify those who break the law during a riot.“Trump is having a campaign rally in downtown Minneapolis. He wants to keep America great, but… AMERICA IS CANCELED,” the call to action posted on a popular Antifa website declared.

MSNBC contributor Sam Stein asked House intelligence committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on September 17, nine days before the complaint was released to the public. "We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower," Schiff responded at the time, never mentioning that one of his committee staffers had directly spoken to the whistleblower -- and that the staffer "shared some of what the [whistleblower] conveyed" with Schiff, according to the New York Times. The New York Times says the staffer referred the whistleblower to a (Democrat-connected) attorney to help him file a formal complaint with the intelligence community inspector general.

First, it is likely that President Donald Trump violated some cockamamie administrative rule when he recently spoke with the new Ukrainian president about the potential corrupt dealings of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, in Ukraine. Fine. Can’t Trump just pay a fine or something? Yes, he should’ve been more careful (and he needs to tell Rudy Giuliani to calm down, as the former mayor risks perjuring himself before not one, but three Congressional committees). What Trump did was the equivalent of going 15 mph over the speed limit in rural Georgia: it happens. Rarely does anyone notice. Ignorance is still not a viable legal defense.

Speaking at a press conference Wednesday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff reaffirmed Democrats’ new stance that they’ll consider any resistance from the administration as “further evidence of obstruction.” “Of course that was an article of impeachment against President Nixon,” the California Democrat said. For his part, Mr. Trump said Wednesday he was willing to go along with Democrats, but it’s not clear how far that cooperation will extend.

The photo shows the 6-year-old girl, who is biracial and has autism, posing with an actor dressed as the movie character Gru from "Despicable Me" during a Universal Orlando breakfast event attended by the Zinger family in March. The character formed an upside-down "OK" symbol with his fingers, recognized by some as a hate symbol, on the girl's shoulder, according to a photo and video reviewed by USA TODAY.

The Blue Bowl, a charity flag football game, was intended to raise money for the family of fallen Ventura County Sgt.

Helus died last Nov. 7, when a 28-year-old suspect allegedly attacked the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, killing a total of 13 people and wounding about a dozen others.
