Humberto Fontova    

Cuban-American Author, Political Commentator & Conservative Polemicist

Humberto Fontova was born in Havana, Cuba. He and his family of 5 attempted to leave in 1961, but only 4 of them were successful. Humberto's father was detained in La Cabana, the firing squad central where 2100 men and boys were murdered. Humberto Sr. stayed there for 3 months and then was released and returned to his family in New Orleans.

Humberto grew up in New Orleans. He graduated from the University of New Orleans with a degree in Political Science. He received his Masters Degree from Tulane University in Latin American Studies. In 2001 he wrote his first book, "The Helldivers' Rodeo;" an extreme scuba diving and spear fishing adventure. Shortly after it's release, Humberto appeared on 3 episodes of "Politically Incorrect" with Bill Maher which included other panel guests such as Tom Green, Florence Henderson and James Coburn. In 2003 he released his second book, "The Hellpig Hunt;" a hunting adventure in the wild wetlands at the mouth of the Mississippi River.

In 2005, he released his third book which is a departure from his earlier writings into a more political genre, "Fidel: Hollywood's Favorite Tyrant," a political and emotional expose' about Fidel Castro and the only totalitarian dictatorship in the Western Hemisphere. This book has been published in English and Spanish. In early 2007, his fourth book was released, "Exposing the Real Che Guevara and the Useful Idiots who Idolize Him;" which has now been published in four languages.

Humberto has appeared on such shows as "The O'Reilly Factor" with Bill O'Reilly, "Hannity and Colmes," "Fox and Friends," "Glenn Beck," "The Dennis Miller Show" and various shows for Telemundo. He is constantly traveling across the country speaking at different events and universities. Humberto is also a columnist for Newsmax, Human Events, Frontpage Magazine along with many outdoor publications including Scuba Diver, Salt Water Sportsman, Bowhunter, and Boating Magazine. His article for Sierra magazine titled, "Why We Hunt," provoked the biggest blizzard of hate-mail in the magazine's history.

He has been a featured speaker at David Horowitz' Restoration Week-End, at the Horowitz Freedom Center, The John Locke Foundation, Miami Book Festival, Palm Springs Book Festival, Club Mensa's Annual Gathering among many campus venues.
