Once again the Las Vegas Tribune has been proven right on articles that appear exclusively on the pages of the Las Vegas newspaper — and the newspaper staff takes it as a badge of honor — but nothing can be more rewarding than having the President of the United States of America be the one that proves the newspaper right.
Sometime back in 2008 the newspaper was in possession of what it believed was a very compromising picture of then presidential candidate Barack Obama’s headquarters in Houston, Texas, which showed the picture of the Cuban flag and a picture of mercenary Ernesto “Che” Guevara on the wall.
The newspaper tried to contact someone to explain to us how a presidential candidate in the United States could have a flag of another nation, communist or not, and a photograph of an international mercenary known for his ties to Castro and his gang of communists in Cuba for years, on the wall in his Houston headquarters.
The person at the Houston, Texas campaign headquarters refused to identify herself saying only that she is Hispanic and her accent was either Puerto Rican or Cuban; but when the newspaper insisted on a name, she hung up.
Las Vegas campaign headquarters on East Flamingo Road denied knowing about the picture and gave the newspaper the runaround and immediately disposed of all copies of the Las Vegas Tribune newspaper; and the campaign administration was always “too busy” to discuss the issue any further.
Now, almost a decade later, while the president and the first family, including the mother-in-law, visited the communist island of Cuba, the Las Vegas Tribune was left pondering the President’s intention all along: was he working his plan to allow Cuba to be part of the international political scene so the Castro brothers could do whatever they have in mind to poison whatever is left of the free world?
The Las Vegas Tribune cannot take credit for the Houston, Texas campaign misfit; the story originated with a local Fox 26 story in Houston, Texas and the Las Vegas Tribune followed the story as many other media outlets did.
“The camera follows two Obama volunteers whooping it up as they enter a new campaign office. The reporter talks about the importance of the Hispanic vote in Houston. Though it went unmentioned, many viewers had a moment of “Wait, is that a…?” Yep, a large Cuban flag with the image of Che Guevara on it can be seen prominently hanging behind the desk of one of the volunteers” and the story spread as dynamite after that, reported Fox 26 back then.
The same Hispanic woman that hung up the phone on the Las Vegas Tribune is the same Hispanic woman that abruptly ended the conversation with Fox 26, but this time she admitted being a Cuban and said her name was Maria Isabel.
And now, the president himself proved Las Vegas Tribune’s veracity on the article published eight years ago, and the newspaper’s detractors, like octogenarian former majority leader Harry Reid and many Democrats’ campaign managers and some Republicans that do not agree with the transparency policy of the newspaper and nitpick on some
grammatical error of the Cuban founder and publisher of the Las Vegas Tribune, who after fifty-nine years of residing in Las Vegas still speaks with an accent, despite having one of the best editors in the field.
The daily paper has hundreds of people working on every issue of their publication and still makes mistakes and grammatical errors, but no one complains about those things, but when the weekly newspaper with a circulation of 30,000 — before being forced to go online because of pressure from the corrupted elected officials, the politically controlling campaign managers and that local daily — lets a mistake slip through, everyone jumps to criticize us, the only independent newspaper in Nevada.
The antagonistic relationship of Senator Reid with the Las Vegas Tribune publisher, Rolando Larraz, is well known, as well as that of other elected officials that are in favor of the lifting of the embargo — such as Republican Senator Dean Heller, who accompanied president Obama on his trip to the communist island.
During his radio show, Face The Tribune, Larraz accused Heller of betraying not only the Cubans in the United States, but also the American people that refuse to become part of the Obama plan of turning the country into another Cuba.
Las Vegas Tribune has been a strong supporter of Donald Trump from the very beginning because he has spoken what many people have been quietly thinking about: close the borders, move the illegals back to their countries of origin, and return the safety and the respect to the country that once was the leader of freedom and was respected by everyone.
