Joan Mellen: The CIA’s Best Publicist

Joan Mellen is a professor of English and creative writing at Temple University, who has produced very little having to do with literature. Instead, she has focused her energies on exposing CIA criminality, specifically regarding the John F. Kennedy Assassination. As evidenced in three books — A Farewell To Justice: Jim Garrison; Our Man in Haiti, and The Great Game in Cuba — she reveals that she has never the left the mindset of the late 1960s, when the New Left regarded the CIA as a draconian secret government with its tentacles into every avenue of American life. How is one to explain this sudden shift from penning award-winning biographies of writers, the best of which is her expose of the real relationship between Dashiell Hammett and Lillian Hellman, to the conspiracy school of history? Mellen’s desperation may spring from how the post 9/11 populace has largely shed its view of the CIA as a sinister organization and instead has wanted its “dark techniques” unleashed on terrorism (polls show… Keep Reading

The Fight Against Communism Is Far From Over

The world is a better place now that  former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro has died.  One more dirty commie has been physically removed from the earth, so to speak. Unfortunately for the world, communism is still lurking and waiting for yet another chance to strike the evil capitalist pigs (such as libertarians) of the world and the United States specifically. We live in a country today that has prominent athletes wearing shirts with the likes of Che Guevara and Fidel Castro, for crying out loud!   This one fact shows us that the world has not learned from the sheer magnitude of communism’s  massive death count. Communists have killed 94 million people collectively. It is the most murderous political philosophy known to man and yet, for some odd reason, millennials and their college professors alike still rock communism like a washed up  football star rocks his  high school jersey at 45 years old, yearning for that lost feeling. The only difference is that the old high school star actually… Keep Reading

Cuban Leader Fidel Castro, Authoritarian Communist, And Staunch Opponent Of U.S. Hegemony, Dead At 90

Long-time Communist leader of Cuba, Fidel Castro, is dead at the age of 90. It is believed that the cause of death was complications related to diverticulitis, a debilitating stomach condition he suffered from since 2006. Although Castro is dead, his legacy of authoritarian government will live on far beyond his death in Cuba. Castro was supplanted by his brother, Raul, who was instilled as President of Cuba in 2008 after Fidel’s health was waning. For many, Castro represented a brutal dictator who fully embodied the evils of totalitarian Communism. To others, he was seen as a Renaissance Man who stood strongly against American dominion and conquest for a great many decades. Fidel Castro came into power officially when he was installed as Prime Minister in 1959. After successfully disposing the despised US-backed leadership in a bloody revolution, Castro was able to stay in power despite a tremendous amount of intervention from the military-industrial complex. This earned Castro legendary stature in the minds of millions of individuals around the… Keep Reading

Three Myths About Venezuela’s Opposition

Venezuela’s current political crisis has drawn much attention worldwide. The shortages, increasing violence, skyrocketing inflation, and the increasing militarization of its economy are all fixtures of Venezuela’s current national disaster. Opposition movements have naturally arisen in response to Venezuela’s squalid state, with the Democratic Unity Roundtable (MUD) leading the charge against the current ruling class.  Despite the unprecedented awareness of Venezuela’s delicate situation, considerable amounts of disinformation abound both in mainstream media and social media coverage of these events. This article seeks to dispel many of these myths and misconceptions that concern Venezuela and its political opposition. The Venezuelan Opposition is Attempting a Coup Against the Current Government To carry out a coup, opposition forces must at least possess a high degree of political clout, military resources, and firepower. It could be argued that current president Nicolás Maduro, who does not possess the same type of charisma and popularity as his predecessor Hugo Chávez, is leading a government that, in theory, should be more susceptible to potential coup attempts. However, the… Keep Reading
