Is Fox News Recalibrating your Conservative Brain?

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

A reader brought to my attention statements made by Peter Johnson Jr., the Fox News legal analyst. Johnson suggests that Republicans need to “recalibrate” immediately– and should consider Obama’s next Supreme Court nominee. Let’s examine this juridical travesty.

 

IS FOX NEWS RECALIBRATING YOUR CONSERVATIVE BRAIN? Copyright © Marielena Montesino de Stuart. All rights reserved.

I have never been a “fan” of any particular news program or network. As such, I obtain my information from different sources (and in various languages)– without allegiance to any specific source.

I look for truth and facts.

We all know too well how the mainstream media lies and spins issues. Case in point: Fox News– which has been pitching itself as a “fair and balanced” news source for conservatives– appears to be the poster child of farcical conservatives hoodwinking their loyal “conservative” fans.

Peter Johnson Jr.’s position as a legal analyst for Fox News– and his connection with Roger Ailes, the Chairman and CEO of Fox News and the Fox Television Stations Group, has placed Johnson on a privileged legal opinion pedestal.

Roger Ailes’s four-year contract with News Corp., is said to have been negotiated by Johnson for a reported amount of over $30 million annually.  With this kind of money in play, it is obvious that Johnson is being given a strong platform on Fox News– but are “conservatives” paying attention to what Peter Johnson Jr., is saying?

I recently republished a piece I wrote on September 25, 2013 detailing the unanimous US Senate Republican confirmation of Todd M. Hughes, a liberal gay-activist judge nominated by Barack Obama. In my commentary I stated that we cannot trust the Republicans currently in the US Senate if they’re faced with Obama’s nominee to the Supreme Court vacancy left by Justice Scalia. However, Peter Johnson Jr., seems to trust these Republicans who have let us down, time and again– as they fail to uphold authentic conservative values– not with words, but with deeds.

Please listen to the following audio recording of Johnson’s statements to Tucker Carlson on Fox (16 Feb. 2016). The transcript is also provided below. Johnson’s legal opinion reflects exactly what is wrong with the GOP:

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): I think there’re very few Republicans who want to see President Obama in his eighth year in office fill the ninth seat of the Supreme Court. The question is, as a tactical matter was it wise for the Senate majority leader to say we’re not even going to consider a nominee?

PETER JOHNSON JR.: No, I think the Republicans have to recalibrate immediately.
When you make a mistake, say you make a mistake. Part of the reason the outsiders are doing so well is that they’re disgusted with the Congress of the United States. Democrats and Republicans. And if you were a Republican leader to say we’re not going to count any nomination, any person that the president puts up, that’s a problem. They’re going to have a countdown and a clock as to the intransigence of the United States Senate going forward.

CARLSON: So you’re saying it would be wiser just to take a look at the nominees and then evaluate them and then turn them down if you don’t like them?

JOHNSON JR.: It is what I’m saying. In order to be true to conservative principles, in order to be true to the Constitution, in order to be true to the memory of Justice Scalia, then you say yes, Mr. President, send who you want to send over. We’re going to take a look at that man or woman, whoever you send, and we’re going to make a determination. Because you obviously have decided in spite of precedent, most precedent, you say in an election year that you want to force the issue. Fine. If you want to force the issue, then you will force the issue, and we in due time, just as you in due time making a nomination, will decide whether to consent to that nomination of a United States Supreme Court justice.

CARLSON: So they wouldn’t have to confirm the nominees.

JOHNSON JR.: The Republicans need to step it back at this point and say, listen, we’re going to grieve for Justice Scalia at this point, then we’re going to make a determination about where we are. There’s no line in the sand. My concern is, A. conservative principles, B. the Constitution and also the future of a two-party system. Where will the Republican party be two or three years from now when it is remembered that the Republican party said we would not — we would not even look at a nominee for the United States Supreme Court? It’s not smart. It’s not good for our future. It’s not good for our governance, and it’s not good for the notion that this government is responsive to the needs of the people. We need a Supreme Court with nine folks on it. It’s that simple. They need to step it back today.

There are those who simply want information poured into their brain by talking-heads on television. For such people, Fox News is the perfect source. But if you are a person who thinks and you are tired of being lied to or given half-truths– then it is time that you step outside the box– before individuals like Peter Johnson Jr., continue to “recalibrate” your conservative brain.

In spite of the onslaught of socialism and assault on our freedom of speech– thinking, after all, is still allowed.

It’s time to lift the fog… someone has to say the truth.

THE 2016 RACE FOR THE WHITE HOUSE: Are Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio the “New Conservatives”?

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

THE 2016 RACE FOR THE WHITE HOUSE- Are Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio the %22New Conservatives%22? Copyright © Marielena Montesino de Stuart. All rights reserved.

Let’s examine this new breed of “conservatives” running for POTUS.

The following is an important excerpt from an article I published on December 10, 2013. It should be of great interest to my readers as they ponder the 2016 U.S. presidential election:

The New World Order that we live under—famously lauded by Republican U.S. President, George Herbert Walker Bush, has indeed grown deep roots in the minds of people all over the world. So much so, that religious leaders, politicians and monarchs who claim to care for the plight of the poor, have either issued statements (as in the Vatican’s statement issued by Francis) or have arrived in Johannesburg for Nelson Mandela’s memorial service, claiming to honor Mandela—a man who shamelessly admired Fidel Castro’s brutal Communist dictatorship, clearly stated as follows:

“From its earliest days, the Cuban Revolution has also been a source of inspiration to all freedom-loving people. We admire the sacrifices of the Cuban people in maintaining their independence and sovereignty in the face of the vicious imperialist-orchestrated campaign to destroy the impressive gain made in the Cuban Revolution… Long live the Cuban Revolution. Long live comrade Fidel Castro.”—Nelson Mandela, July 26, 1991, Cuba

Nelson Mandela and Fidel Castro
Nelson Mandela and Fidel Castro

Another participant in the Mandela memorial service, who shocked many (except for me) was none other than U.S. Senator Ted Cruz from Texas, who issued the following statement, before traveling to Johannesburg:

“Nelson Mandela will live in history as an inspiration for defenders of liberty around the globe. He stood firm for decades on the principle that until all South Africans enjoyed equal liberties he would not leave prison himself, declaring in his autobiography, ‘Freedom is indivisible; the chains on any one of my people were the chains on all of them, the chains on all of my people were the chains on me.’ Because of his epic fight against injustice, an entire nation is now free. 

“We mourn his loss and offer our condolences to his family and the people of South Africa.” — U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (Republican-Texas) – December 5, 2013

Ted Cruz has chosen to ignore Mandela’s admitted terrorist past as a Communist.  Cruz has also chosen to ignore the fact that Mandela institutionalized unfettered abortion in South Africa– and that he single-handedly turned South Africa into a nation with some the most liberal laws on earth.

Based on Cruz’ public statement of admiration for Mandela and his decision to participate in the Mandela memorial event, is it possible that Senator Ted Cruz still harbors admiration for his own father’s participation as a pro-Castro revolutionary activist?  “’He was a guerilla, throwing Molotov cocktails and blowing up buildings,‘ Ted Cruz told the Austin American-Statesman [about his father] for a profile published in January 2006,” according to The Dallas Morning News (October 25, 2011).

How else are we to explain Ted Cruz’ statement honoring Mandela– and his subsequent pilgrimage to South Africa to be at the memorial?

This two-sided political approach is very common in the Cuban exiled community and among those of Cuban descent, who often view their parents’ former socialist pro-Castro activism with starry-eyed idealism, while they also denounce Castro. This inconsistent political behavior is precisely what has divided the Cuban exiled community for more than 50 years.

As I said above, Ted Cruz’ participation in Nelson Mandela’s memorial and his written statement did not take me by surprise. Ted Cruz wants to have it both ways, but principled conservatives do not behave this way.

In what appears to be an obvious attempt to defuse the criticisms he has been receiving, Ted Cruz “walked out” when Raúl Castro was delivering his speech at the Mandela memorial. Too little, too late.

Another admirer of Nelson Mandela is U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, also of Cuban descent. Marco Rubio’s ambiguous account of his family’s return to Cuba afterCastro’s takeover in January 1959, continues to raise questions and eyebrows– considering that the executions of hundreds of innocent Cubans began immediately in 1959, in the fortress of La Cabaña. In addition, it was well known that hundreds of innocent farmers and civilians had been executed throughout the island by Castro and his band of Marxist thugs during their terrorist “revolution.” By 1960 all American businesses in Cuba had been nationalized without compensation– and the United States had broken off diplomatic relations with Havana.

Given these conditions, why did Marco Rubio’s parents leave the United States and return to Cuba to live under Castro?

Although Senator Marco Rubio did not travel to Johannesburg for Mandela’s memorial, his admiration for Nelson Mandela shows that Senator Marco Rubio and Senator Ted Cruz suffer from the same malady of political inconsistency. Much has changed with Rubio since he ran for the U.S. Senate.  Here is Marco Rubio’s statement paying homage to Mandela:

“The world has lost one of history’s most important figures, though Nelson Mandela’s example will live on for generations to come. Men and women striving for justice and fairness around the world have drawn inspiration from Nelson Mandela, and he showed South Africans and the entire world what the power of forgiveness truly means and can accomplish. My wife Jeanette and I send our condolences to the Mandela family and to the people of South Africa.” — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (Republican-Florida) December 5, 2013.

Nelson Mandela and Communism

Nelson Mandela was not a political prisoner. He was imprisoned for espousing violent activities through the Umkhonto we Sizwe (abbreviated MK)– a terrorist organization which he co-founded, as the “armed” wing of the African National Congress (ANC).

During his trial Nelson Mandela pleaded guilty to 156 acts of public violence, which included organizing terrorist bombing campaigns. Scores of innocent people, both black and white, were killed by Nelson Mandela’s Umkhonto we Sizwe terrorists, including women and children. In any other country Nelson Mandela would have been sentenced to death, or would have spent life in prison. Yet, he enjoyed communication privileges unheard of, for a prisoner with such a criminal record.

As such, even Amnesty International, which is well known for its progressive side, would not take on Mandela’s case, since he was not a political prisoner (“prisoner of conscience”). In addition, pursuant to Amnesty International’s criterion, a “prisoner of conscience” must not have used nor advocated violence.

As cruel and abominable as apartheid was, Mandela’s legacy of terrorist violence and support of murderous Communist dictatorships cannot be justified

By the time Mandela came out of prison and became President of South Africa he had given up on the idea of full-blown communism, given that he would not receive aid from the Soviet Union, which had recently collapsed.

Cuba’s communism, which Mandela so admired, was his scariest example of a communist country starving after its long dependence on the Soviet Union.  However, the communists from the former Communist bloc resurfaced through Sustainable Development (Agenda 21)– which is the United Nations socialist global initiative.  The operatives of Agenda 21 have worked tirelessly in Africa to advance socialism– in ways that the Soviet Union could not achieve.  Socialist politicians all over the world, including Mandela, have advanced their causes with the help of Sustainable Development, much more than they ever could with the help of the Soviets.

While Nelson Mandela praised Fidel Castro’s Communist dictatorship, the Strait of Florida had already become a cemetery for untold hundreds of thousands of Cubans who had drowned trying to escape.  This does not include the untold number executed by Castro’s government forces.  After nearly 55 years of Castro’s Communist dictatorship, the human loss has become one of the worst catastrophes recorded in modern history.  But New World Order religious leaders, politicians and monarchs do not feel it is in their best interest to demand that the Communist dagger be removed from the heart of the Cuban people…

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO ALL U.S. PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES: There’s no such thing as a deal with Communist Cuba

Communists lie. Communists cheat. Communists steal.

(With a commentary on the Pensacola Yacht Club Race to Havana)

In the past few weeks we witnessed Barack Obama humiliating the American and the Cuban people by establishing diplomatic relations with Communist Cuba, and raising the venerable flag of the United States of America in Havana. My commentary titled “AN ACT OF COWARDICE: U.S. Diplomatic Relations with Communist Cuba” amplifies my opinion on this matter.

Presidential candidates in the United States must not mislead the American public into the assumption that Obama’s so-called “diplomacy” with the Marxist Castro brothers can be maintained and improved under a new administration.

There’s no such thing as diplomacy with communists. Communists do not believe in diplomacy. They lie. They cheat. They steal.

Communists only believe in absolute control and oppression of the people they rule. Communism is the most dangerous form of extremism in modern times—because of its long-running, pervasive and persistent nature. Our fight to eradicate Islamic extremism, in all its horrific and dangerous forms, is actually a feasible intelligence and military endeavor in the hands of a competent U.S. President. But the fight to eradicate communism will take generations. Over 120 million people have died worldwide at the hands of communists and their fellow travelers. The numbers continue to rise.

Communists in Cuba will take advantage of U.S. government aid (as they have for years) which is provided by the American taxpayer—and they will not change a single aspect of their despotic practices. In fact, within hours of Obama raising our stars and stripes on Cuban soil, the head of the Cuban “diplomatic” delegation, Josefina Vidal, stated that the Cuban government would not change “one iota” of its policies.

Straight from the communist horse’s mouth

 U.S. presidential candidates need to open their eyes and read the statements coming out of Cuba. For example, here is an excerpt of a report published on May 26, 2015 in Granma, which is Cuba’s publication for communist propaganda under the control of the government in Havana– specifically identified as “the official voice of the Communist Party of Cuba Central Committee.”

The report features statements made by Vidal. Bold added for emphasis:

“It seemed strange to me, at the closing of the 7th Summit of the Americas in Panama, to hear President Obama, during his press conference, say that the purpose of U.S. policy, in the case of Cuba, was not regime change.

 Therefore, we hope that as we advance in the process toward normalization of relations, we will see a better match between this type of statement and real life.

 Real life tells us that they are still requesting multi-million dollar funding to sustain these types of programs which Cuba considers illegal, since they are programs directed toward provoking change within our country, and which, at the same time, are being attempted without any sort of consent from authorities or the Cuban government.”

Sadly, many Americans (as well as many Cubans who have claimed political asylum in the United States) are pouring into Cuba as tourists. Cruise lines are offering vacation packages. The Pensacola Yacht Club sailed yesterday with a flotilla of cruiser sailboats towards Cuba—where they will be warmly welcomed by a contingency of communists who will undoubtedly offer them Cuban drinks, in exchange for free propaganda. The Pensacola Yacht Club even had the audacity of providing an information link to a website that promotes tourism to this tragic island controlled by tyrants. See reference section below.

The hubris of those involved in the U.S.-Cuba tourism and cultural “exchange” industries and organizations is absolutely immoral—and an insult to humanity, when one considers the hunger, lack of basic human services, oppression, torture, imprisonment and “disappearance” of Cubans who dare to express their opposition to their despotic communist military government—while these ignorant yachting and tourism enthusiasts arrive on the shores of the island prison!

No. There’s no way to “deal” with the murderers in the Communist Cuban government. The only deal that could ever work is an offer they can’t refuse.

It’s time to lift the fog… someone has to say the truth.
