Here’s the latest “bofetada” (face-slap) from the Castro regime.
As the Normalization Circus keeps the dollars flowing into the coffers of the Castro Dynasty, and as the concessions from the U.S. keep piling up, the Castro regime has refused entry to four congressmen and one congresswoman on the House Homeland Security Committee who want to inspect Cuban airports.
Their inspection tour is directly connected to the concessions made by the Obama administration concerning direct flights by U.S. airlines to Castrogonia.
With hundreds and hundreds of new flights planned between U.S. and Cuban airports, this congressional committee simply wants to make sure that security at Cuban airports meets U.S. standards.
Will this delay or stop those hundreds and hundreds of airplanes that are going to fly back and forth across the Florida Straits?
Are you kidding? Geddouttaheeah. The Normalization Circus can’t be stopped by anything or anyone, much less a visa denial to four Republicans and one measly Democrat.
This latest insult from the Castro regime means nothing, absolutely nothing to the current lame-duck occupant of the White House or to the sniveling cretins who work for him.
Security be damned. Why care about that? There’s a legacy to preserve, after all, and a “historic” one at that.

House lawmakers blocked from visiting Cuba
Several House lawmakers claim they were blocked by the Cuban government from traveling to the country, where they planned to assess aviation security and passenger screening at airports.
The delegation, led by House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-Texas), planned to visit the island this weekend to evaluate the potential national security risks associated with resuming commercial air service to Cuba.
The Obama administration earlier this year announced an agreement to re-establish scheduled air service between the U.S. and Cuba as part of an effort to normalize relations with the former Cold War enemy. Six commercial U.S. airlines will begin flying to Cuba this fall, the Department of Transportation announced this month.
Travel to Cuba is permitted under limited circumstances, including for official U.S. government business.
But members of the Homeland Security Committee said their visas were not approved for their planned trip.
Adding fuel to the fire is an announcement on Friday that National Basketball Association hall-of-famer Shaquille O’Neal will serve as a U.S. Department of State Sports Envoy to Cuba from June 25 to 28.
“At a time when the Obama Administration is rolling out the red carpet for Havana, the Cuban government refuses to be open and transparent with the peoples’ Representatives,” McCaul said in a statement on Friday. “Sadly, it appears to be easier for Cubans to come to the United States than for Members of the House Homeland Security Committee to get to Cuba.”
Other lawmakers who were planning to visit Cuba include Reps. John Katko (R-N.Y.), Martha McSally (R-Ariz.), Richard Hudson (R-N.C.) and Henry Cuellar (D-Texas).
