As if Mexico didn’t already have enough problems with gangsters.
On his way to a San Francisco Summit with Barack Obama, new Chinese President Xi Jinping has visited Costa Rica and Marxist led Cuba and Brazil, to build up his Latin American support.
Most significant however was his meeting with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto. This visit signals a new phase in Mexico/China relations. One that will have a big impact on the United States. Continue reading
In a sign Venezuela’s food shortages could be worsening, restrictions on the sale of 20 basic items subject to price controls, including toilet paper and chicken, are set to begin next week in its most populous state, officials said on Tuesday.
A spokesman for Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s government said it is incorrect to call the plan rationing because it is meant to fight smuggling of price-controlled food across the border into Colombia. He said there are no plans to extend the program nationally. Continue reading
China is set to overtake the United States as the world’s largest importer of oil this decade. While the expansion of China?’s economy has slowed from a breakneck 10% yearly rate to a still-formidable 7% per annum, the economic metamorphosis of the Middle Kingdom is having huge impacts on global energy markets.
The growing ranks of China’s middle class increasingly aspire to a lifestyle – and level of consumption – that approximates the patterns of their counterparts in the world’s richest countries. The death of Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez has further highlighted China’s need for the lifeblood of a modern economy and the economic and geopolitical threats China’s dependence on imported energy hold for the leadership in Beijing.

Should he go, look for his politicized favorite, Nicolas Maduro, to take the helm.
Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez is in an induced coma being kept alive by life support following complications during cancer surgery, it was claimed today.
Sources at the hospital in Cuba where he is being treated told a Spanish newspaper he was showing ‘very weak’ vital signs, adding that doctors could decide to switch off the machines ‘at any moment’. Continue reading
If the cancer-stricken Chavez survives until his Jan. 10 inauguration but dies during the first four years of his term, the constitution says that Maduro would take over temporarily and that new elections should be held within 30 days.Chavez told Venezuelans on Saturday night if he isn’t able to stay on he wants them to elect Maduro as his successor.

The American citizenry might be shocked to learn (or typically dismiss) that this is now the second most dangerous day, as they have been reinstalled. The year is 2012, the threat has reemerged, people do not get the real news anymore and have been lulled into a calming false sense of security.
On October 27, 2012 the world commemorates the 50th anniversary of what has been called the most dangerous day in world history. It was on Saturday 27th October, 1962 that the Cuban missile crisis involving the two superpowers – the US and the former Soviet Union – reached a fever pitch. The confrontation had started with the detection of Soviet medium-range ballistic missiles by an American photo-reconnaissance U-2 flight over Cuba which information was conveyed to US President John F. Kennedy on October 16, 1962. The end of the crisis dates to October 28, 1962 when the Soviets agreed to withdraw their missiles and nuclear warheads from Cuba in exchange for an American undertaking not to invade Cuba, along with a secret offer by the US to remove its missiles installed in Turkey at a later date. Continue reading
It is still the hardest place to find. A glade down an overgrown path which seems like any other clearing in the endless woods of Brandenburg. But on its floor, there is a strip of concrete half the size of a tennis court, with a metal plate in the middle.
This is the launch-pad for a nuclear attack on Western Europe. Soviet nuclear missiles 20 times more powerful than Hiroshima were set up here, primed to be fired at targets including London and nuclear bases in eastern England. Continue reading
Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and his state of health is so precarious that he has trouble feeding, speaking and recognizing people, said a Venezuelan physician who assured El Nuevo Herald that he has access to firsthand sources and information.
“He suffered an embolic stroke and recognizes absolutely no one,” said José Marquina, a respected doctor who in the past has claimed to have direct information about the illness affecting President Hugo Chávez of Venezuela. Continue reading
After only a little bit of thought, most people wouldn’t buy the fact that the Soviets or Americans would have much to gain from each other in regards to simple parachute jumps and medical evacuations, marksmanship and communications. Even boot camp for entry-level military personnel undergo this. Both nations respectively have an advanced military. It can be plainly seen that this is nothing less than an intelligence gathering operation on the Soviet’s part.
Having said this, two points remained unanswered:
What information do the Russians really gain from this exercise and how will they use this against America in the future?
Joint U.S.-Russia military training raises concerns that the U.S. military will increase Moscow threat to friends and allies in Europe
The U.S.-Russian Bilateral Presidential Commission stated in its June newsletter that “the training consisted of tasks common to both units: marksmanship, parachute jumps, communications, and medical evacuations.”
“The end result of this program is an improved understanding of how the other foreign military works, thus enhancing the operational effectiveness of allied forces,” the newsletter stated.
The U.S. government, while seeking closer ties with Moscow, is “insulting” Georgia by holding the joint exercises, since the Obama administration remains unwilling to sell the Georgians needed defense equipment and arms and has held very little training joint training with its military, the aide said.
Additionally, the Georgians are “under constant threat from a large-scale Russian military mobilization set for Georgia’s Oct. 1 parliamentary elections,” the aide added.
“The idea that some of these same Russian paratroopers could drop into NATO territory someday is not a fantasy,” the aide said. “What is a fantasy is thinking that they would never have to do it.”
The senior aide criticized the exercises as “more of the reset foolishness and weakness,” a reference to the Obama administration’s conciliatory policies toward Russia.
“Why don’t we do more in NATO? I guess Obama has reset that, too,” the aide said.
Ariel Cohen, a Russia affairs analyst with the Heritage Foundation, said now is not the time for such military exercises with Russia.
Russia has sent military intelligence agents disguised as special forces soldiers to spy on American troops, tactics, techniques, and procedures, he said.
“Today, Russia, together with Iran and Venezuela is among the troika of the most virulent anti-American countries, not counting Cuba and North Korea,” Cohen said.
“Russia is playing the godfather of Syria and is threatening to aim nuclear tipped missiles on our European allies because their military is still thinking we will deliver the nuclear first strike. This is why they oppose our European missile defense.”
The Russian exercises came weeks before several episodes of Russian military activities that also prompted concerns among Republicans in Congress.
In June, Russia’s military conducted a large-scale strategic bomber exercise in the arctic that included Russian Bear H bombers flying inside the U.S. air defense zone near Alaska. U.S. and Canadian jets were scrambled to intercept the jets.
The exercise, according to U.S. officials, appeared to violate the 2010 U.S.-Russia START arms treaty, which requires Russians to provide advance notice of such bomber exercises. None was given, either in advance or after the war games ended. A Russian military spokesman said the bomber exercises included practice targeting of “enemy” strategic defenses, presumably U.S. missile defense sites in Alaska.
Then, on July 4, another Russian Bear H bomber flew within 100 miles of the West Coast near California prompting a second scrambling of interceptor jets.
U.S. officials called that incursion the closest a Russian strategic bomber has flown to U.S. territory since the Soviet Union collapsed.
U.S. officials then disclosed that a Russian attack submarine sailed undetected in the Gulf of Mexico for several weeks before being spotted outside the Gulf.

This is the sequel to the Part I exclusive published by Right Side News on Wednesday, August 1st.
In Part I, Trevor Loudon, who was among the first to expose Obama’s radicalism, exposes the relationship between President Obama and a high level, pro-Soviet operative, Alice Palmer, actively involved with known Soviet and communist front organizations at the height of the Cold War. She worked closely with the future U.S. president for several years, in the same socialist and communist networks that dominated the left side of Chicago politics…
Also in Part I of James Simpson’s report, speaker Konstantin Preobrazhensky, a KGB defector, explained in vivid detail how and why the Soviet Union became the real force behind Muslim terrorism, including al Qaeda. We continue with Part II by James Simpson.
The Most Important Press Conference Ever Held at Any Time in U.S. History: Part IICliff Kincaid of America’s Survival held the critical National Press Club event on July 19th: The Vetting: Obama, Radical Islam and the Soros Connection. At this pivotal time, we face a national election that may well determine the fate of our great country. And as America goes, so goes the world.
Thus, it is not an exaggeration to describe this as the most important press conference in U.S. history, because it explicitly details, with new facts and more evidence than ever presented in one place at one time, from extensive, highly credible sources, the dangerously extremist nature of President Obama and the true goals of his virulently anti-American, radical leftist administration.
Frank Marshall Davis’s Influence on Barack Obama
Paul Kengor is professor of political science at Grove City College and Executive Director of Grove City’s Center for Vision and Values. He is also a prolific author. His presentation at the Kincaid conference focused on his latest book, The Communist, Frank Marshall Davis: The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mentor. Other notable recent works include “The Crusader: Ronald Reagan and the Fall of Communism” and “Dupes: How America’s Adversaries Have Manipulated Progressives for a Century.”
In The Communist, Kengor delves deep into Davis’s past to produce an extensively documented biography of the man who had perhaps the most influence on Barack Obama of anyone in his life. Davis was a highly influential member of the American Communist Party, CPUSA member #47544, according to the FBI. He spent a lifetime engaged in pro-Soviet, communist activities. He likely moved to Hawaii to engage in surveillance for the Soviets, who considered the islands – not yet a U.S. state – of key military significance. Kengor shows just how deep Davis’s communist ties were, and how important he was to Obama’s worldview. Some highlights follow:
Weather Underground: White Reds Exploiting Blacks
Larry Grathwohl is the only FBI informant to successfully penetrate the Weather Underground (WU). He testified before several federal Grand Juries, the U.S. Senate, and at the Mark Felt/Ed Miller FBI trial. He wrote the 1976 book, Bringing Down America and now works with America’s Survival, Inc. to re-establish Congressional committees to investigate internal security problems. Larry continues to provide insights into this malevolent organization and its most famous members, Obama BFFs, Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. At the Kincaid conference he presents his report, White Reds Exploiting Blacks: The Weather Underground, Barack Obama, and the Fundamental Transformation of the United States.
Larry started by relating that FBI background investigations used to apply something called the CARL standard. CARL stands for Character, Associates, Reputation and Loyalty. By that standard, President Obama fails on all counts, but in particular, his associates are damning evidence of an attitude irreconcilably hostile to America, the country he is supposed to be serving as the highest elected official in the land.
Those of us familiar with Bill Ayers know that he authored Prairie Fire, WU’s communist manifesto, and that it was dedicated to people including Bobby Kennedy’s killer, Sirhan Sirhan. Most people are unaware that Ayers was denied a position at
According to Grathwohl, Ayers once said that both Kennedy assassinations were a good thing. In his own words:
I remember one meeting when our Weatherman “collective” brought up the subject of the Kennedy assassinations. At least 20 to 25 people were present and Bill Ayers was one of them. I heard Bill state that the murders of both John F. Kennedy and Robert F Kennedy were a good thing because liberals compromise the conflict between U.S. imperialism and the socialist revolution. Liberals prevent the contradictions from becoming obvious and thus prevent a revolution. Therefore, the assassinations of the Kennedys were to be welcomed as a necessary advance on the road to communist world revolution.
In other words, if someone’s existence messes up the narrative, Ayers says get rid of him! Robert Kennedy’s son, Christopher, who sits on the board of the University of Illinois, saw to it that Ayers was denied “emeritus” status because of this. Kennedy said, “There can be no place in a democracy to celebrate political assassinations or to honor those who do.”
Bill Ayers, just a guy in the neighborhood… Nothing to see here, move along…

The Soviets now, once again, placed nuclear missiles in Cuba. Florida can now be nuked in under 10 minutes.
Make no mistake, the Cold War never ended. This is only a continuance of it which is merely in the final stages. The Soviets are beginning to take their masks off. Where is the nation’s leadership? Obama is no JFK — and JFK was well aware of the threat and how serious it was. He even mentioned that there was an atomic bomb in the nation’s capital.
This is unprecedented, not in the news (like many other things) and the American public is almost completely unaware.
The American “Shopping Mall Regime” is too busy paying attention to Kim Kardashian and the Olympics.
Straight from the state-owned (KGB) Soviet media:
The Russian government intends to restore the military-technical support of their ships at the former military base in Cam Ranh (Vietnam), Lourdes (Cuba) and the Seychelles. So far, this is not about plans for a military presence, but rather the restoration of the crew resources. However, a solid contractual basis should be developed for these plans.
The intentions were announced on July 27 by the Russian Navy Commander Vice Admiral Viktor Chirkov. “At the international level, the creation of logistics points in Cuba, the Seychelles and Vietnam is being worked out,” Chirkov was quoted by the media. The issue was specifically discussed at the meeting with the leaders of all countries. President of Vietnam Truong Tan Sang has recently held talks with Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev in Moscow and President Putin in Sochi. Cuban leader Raul Castro met with Putin in Moscow earlier this month. A little earlier the President of the Republic of Seychelles, James Michel made an unequivocal statement.
The Russian Federation has fulfilled all terms of the agreement. And even more. I shut down not only the Cuban Lourdes but also Kamran in Vietnam. I shut them down because I gave my word of honor. I, like a man, has kept my word. What have the Americans done? The Americans are not responsible for their own words. It is no secret that in recent years, the U.S. created a buffer zone around Russia, involving in this process not only the countries of Central Europe, but also the Baltic states, Ukraine and the Caucasus. The only response to this could be an asymmetric expansion of the Russian military presence abroad, particularly in Cuba. In Cuba, there are convenient bays for our reconnaissance and warships, a network of the so-called “jump airfields.” With the full consent of the Cuban leadership, on May 11 of this year, our country has not only resumed work in the electronic center of Lourdes, but also placed the latest mobile strategic nuclear missiles “Oak” on the island. They did not want to do it the amicable way, now let them deal with this,” Putin said.

While most eyes have been fixated on China, Russia, Europe or the middle east over the years; in our own backyard Latin America has been forming into a regional hegemonic bloc, threat and challenge to the United States.
Finally, Pravda notes with satisfaction the devotion of Latin America’s Red Axis leaders to Russia, Cuba, China, and Iran, as well as regional integration:
Chavez, Morales and Correa are charismatic leaders who have gained global admiration and support. They favor a multi-polar world, anti-imperialism and anti-capitalism. They share strong ties to other Latin American countries, Cuba, China, Russia and Iran.
Latin American strength is founded on unification. Chavez, Morales and Correa are fiery champions of ALBA (Alliance for the Peoples of our America), UNASUR (Union of South American Nations) and the newly created CELAC (Community of Latin American and Caribbean States). Latin America has its own virtual currency, the SUCRE, and its own regional bank, BANCO DEL SUR.
Something tells me, though, that even if a Republican returns to the White House in 2013, Washington’s response to the “Red Spread” south of the border will be piecemeal at best. The Oval Office needs the robust ideological presence of another Ronald Reagan, in our opinion, America’s last great president.
Incidentally, Communist China, which had virtually no presence in Latin America and the Caribbean during the Cold War, has carved out new niches in this region, including one that suggests a “Red Cocaine” scenario.
Earlier this month, the Mexican navy reported the seizure of 195 tons of methylamine, a chemical used to make the synthetic drug methamphetamine, as well as synthetic cocaine. Mexican authorities found 12 shipping containers full of this precursor chemical at the Pacific coast port of Lazaro Cardenas. The shipment originated in Red China and was destined for Guatemala and Nicaragua. Mexican navy officials said the drug cartels terrorizing their country have expanded their methamphetamine operations to Guatemala. Not so coincidentally, the port facility at Lazaro Cardenas is operated by Hutchison-Whampoa, which is owned by Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-shing, who in turn is closely allied with the Communist Party of China.
According to a 2011 report by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, the world’s main producers of synthetic drugs remain the Netherlands and Myanmar (Burma), but manufacture has lately spread to Latin America.
