  • Griffin: Call me suspicious, but I have to think Venezuela got an assist from their new best friend, Vladimir Putin. The Russians call up...

  • Gallardo: And just like Benghazi (including the blaming of a stupid YouTube video), the IRS’s targeting of Obama’s opponents,...

  • asombra: It’s painful to see this kind of ambivalence, not to say equivocation, from a Cuban this late in the game. Not a good sign.

  • asombra: If the Netherlands was prepared to disgrace itself with a royal visit to Maduro, it was hardly likely to play hardball here.

  • asombra: Still, this venomous old fart could do a Chico Escuela and go “the revolution been berry, berry good to me.”

“Flat-Earthers, Witch-Doctors, Snake-Handlers, etc.” (i.e. believers in tourism to Cuba) burned-at-stake by our friends at Frontpage Magazine

"Oh I know, I know, the media mantra has it that opening Cuba to tourism will quickly convert it into a combination Shangri-La, Land of Oz and Cancun. “I mean, come on Humberto! It just sounds so plausible! “

Yes, and until a few people decided to look behind the surface plausibility a flat earth also sounded plausible.

So let’s do like beatnik Bourdain professes and "shun official corporate and establishment hype, man. Let’s get down and dirty and dig it, daddy-oh!" Let’s cut the cr*p and look at the actual scientific evidence. Fine:

Every year for the past decade over ten times as many tourists have visited Cuba as in the 50’s when the island was billed by the media (and Godfather II) as a” tourist playground.” Result?....

Our friends at Frontpage Magazine help discomfit some believers in Shamans and Witch Doctors (i.e. Cuba "experts")
