The Boys of the Chong Chon Gang are back!

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Politics, religion and Communist arms trade– a drama on the high seas

In late September 2013 I wrote about a mysterious North Korean cargo ship, the Chong Chon Gang, which was caught carrying an illicit Cuban arms cache, hidden underneath 10,000 tons of sugar. My report unmasked the religious and political forces in cahoots with the Cuban Communist dictatorship, while the Cuban people continue under horrendous oppression– and these international crimes are being committed.

But let’s recap. The sweet Cuban load consisted of the following:

> Two MiG-21 jet fighters

 MiG-21 jet aircraft engines

> 6 military vehicles

> A variety of small arms

> Light weapons (SALW) ammunition

> Conventional artillery ammunition for anti-tank guns and howitzer artillery

> Generators

> Batteries

> Night vision equipment, among other items

The European Union’s Love Affair with Cuba

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

A Valentine’s Day Special

In spite of a vibrant conservative movement in countries like France and Spain– the European Union, and its socialist autocrats, continue to increase their shameless economic engagement with the despotic Castro Communist regime in Cuba.

Androulla Vassiliou, who hails from Cyprus, is the EU’s Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth.  After meeting with Cuba’s Foreign Minister, Bruno Rodríguez, Androulla expressed her hopes that an opening of EU negotiations on a new political agreement and “dialogue” with Cuba, will inspire Obama to do the same.

Androulla is obviously a dedicated socialist who along with her colleagues will continue to advance the EU’s “progressive” agenda– with reckless disregard for the 55 years of Communist torture that the Cuban people have endured.

Socialism survives through relationships being forged with totalitarian states, like Cuba and China, until a massive chain of oppression is constructed. Socialists navigate under the banner of “Sustainable Development”– and they are choking the rights of citizens in every region of the world– with the guidance of the United Nations.

SOCIALISTS EAT CAVIAR: Oh, oui, je me souviens de ces plaisirs…

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Oh, oui, je me souviens de ces plaisirs… (oh, yes, I remember these pleasures)

Rue Cler, Paris

I remember the day I walked into a gourmet shop on Rue Cler in Paris’ 7th arrondissement.  The shop owner gave me a taste test of his finest caviar.  And because life is nothing but one contrast after another, I chatted with him about growing up during Cuba’s Stalinist period– and spending seven months eating garbanzo beans (which I do not touch to this day).  My mother became an expert at preparing garbanzo beans in every possible way. Today she would put to shame the most creative chef at Noma, in Copenhagen– ranked the best restaurant in the world for its inventive cuisine.

Castro and Caviar

While we were surviving on garbanzo beans, Fidel Castro was eating Russian caviar. Don’t miss the rest of this BRIEF COMMENTARY

SANTO SUBITO! Here’s your chance to be a saint…

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

There are more and more similarities between the administrative styles of Barack Obama and Francis.

Barack Obama loves to pull the Executive Orders out of his drawer, whenever things aren’t moving fast enough– or simply not going his way.

It appears that Francis likes Obama’s style.

In a move that is leaving many gasping for air (except perhaps for a few of us)– Francis has begun to unilaterally declare saints– bypassing the already relaxed process of saint making– which was promulgated by John Paul II in 1983.  As such, Francis went straight to the catalogue of saints and added Pierre Favre, a former “college roommate” of Ignatius Loyola, while the two studied in Paris. Italy’s Vatican Insider is reporting this event as a possible use of “equivalent canonization”– a process apparently used by Benedict XVI to canonize Hildegard of Bingen.

No one is doubting that there are good and holy persons that could eventually become saints. But what if someone is declared a saint without careful scrutiny– and we are later told that there were “certain problems”– as in the case of Pope Alexander III, who scolded Swedes for venerating a monk killed in a drunken brawl.

THE FRENCH vs. THE BARBARIANS: French parents yank their children from schools in reaction to gender studies

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

The mainstream media is closely observing the conservative protesters in France.

Moi aussi.

These pro-traditional family protesters have successfully pushed Hollande’s Socialist government into a corner– with his pro-homosexual agenda. Don’t miss the rest of this BRIEF COMMENTARY
