“Migrants” from Castrogonia returned to their generous and benevolent slaveowners

Ungrateful malcontents. How else can you describe these "migrants" who flee a land where the state provides everyone with free healthcare and free education? Perhaps they should have read the latest issue of  The Nation magazine before fleeing.  Had they read The Nation's article on Castrogonia, they would have realized that they had no need […]

Cubazuela and the Gaza crisis

Israel's Foreign Minister met today with the Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki Moon. Among the many pressing items discussed, the issue of Cubazuela's role in this conflict stood out. The Castro Kingdom has long been a vociferous enemy of Israel.  Now that it has annexed Venezuela, the shouting has increased in volume, […]

Rumors of Mariela Castro’s death surface, then quickly prove false

Add this one to the long, long list of moments when Cubans have briefly received news of a death in the dragons' den, that is, the Castro royal  family. Today, for a very brief instant, it seemed that Queen of drag queens Mariela Castro was one of the passengers on the doomed Algerian flight that […]

Shalom Mother- &^%$#!: Israeli businessman rages against Western liberal blindness

It's a level of rage that most Cuban exiles can identify with. Been there, felt that.   Most of us know what it feels like to be perceived as the bad guys and to see our tormentors portrayed as the good guys. We know what it feels like when others say "preposterous, disgusting and very […]

Chinese dictator strikes deals with Cuban dictator

Xi's own Latrine-Palooza takes him to Castrogonia Well, here it is at last: a flurry of official reports and staged photos to document the visit of Chinese dictator Xi to the nation formerly known as Cuba. The incredible shrinking dictator, Fidel Castro, welcomed Xi at his palatial villa just outside Havana.  One Cuban exile emailed […]

Release the Kraken!: Chinese dictator shadows Putin across Latrine America

Never let it be said that China's dictator Xi Jinping is a slacker. He's going everywhere Czar Vladimir Putin went last week, tracing his footsteps, stirring the pot of self-destructive Latrine idiocy and anti-Americanism. Xi is now in Castrogonia, probably striking a deal for Chinese spying facilities to rival those just re-activated by Czar Vladimir Putin. […]

Dispatch from the desk of despair

Calls for investigation of the murder of Oswaldo Payá and Harold Cepero still fall on deaf ears two years after event A Washington Post editorial has just called attention to the extrajudicial execution of two Cuban pacifist dissidents. Will this editorial change the course of history? Dream on: it's reassuring to see the editors of […]

Fidel blames “imperialists” for downing of Malaysian plane

"Former leader" and "father of the Cuban revolution":  choice euphemisms for one of the most brutal dictators of our age. And the press still pays attention to his ravings. That's the real news here, not the fact that he blames "imperialists" for shooting down a plane full of innocent people.  After all, this demoniac has […]

ISIS follows Castro playbook

Forced conversions are nothing new in the history of the world.  Neither are mass expulsions based on religious or ethnic prejudices. Reading about the expulsion strategies of ISIS can make it seem as if this is the 13th century rather than the 21st.  Yes, what they are doing to Christians in Iraq is not new, […]

“Russia Today” correspondent does what all foreign correspondents in Havana should do

Something very unusual happened today: a journalist resigned her post over questions of integrity. Sara Firth, who worked for "Russia Today" refused to parrot the lies fed to her by the Kremlin. Imagine what would happen if all journalists reporting from Castrogonia were to have the same principles. Unfortunately, it seems that the situation is […]

Good questions !

As the remains of a Malaysian jet and its passengers smolder over a nine-mile swath of Ukraine, some of our friends in Washington D.C. pose some excellent questions related to U.S. policies toward Russia and Castrogonia. From Capitol Hill Cubans Waiting for the Consequences at 11:21 AM Thursday, July 17, 2014 In a statement yesterday, […]

When evil prospers and monsters laugh: an ancient meditation

Psalm 73 1 Surely God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart. 2 But as for me, my feet had almost slipped; I had nearly lost my foothold. 3 For I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. 4 They have no struggles; their bodies are healthy […]

Experience the thrill of Schadenfreude on new people-to-people Cuban excursion !!!

Schadenfreude is pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others. And it's schadenfreude that drives the Cuban people-to-people tourist industry. Why else would anyone shell out six thousand dollars or so to visit a repressive hell hole where nearly every building is in ruins? Insight Cuba, one of the largest tour operators in this market, has announced […]

Putin’s Latrine-Palooza tour joined by Chinese partner

This is boring news, but important. After sitting through the World Cup final game, Vladimir Putin met with the "president" of China and three other heads of state in Brazil, to further the cause of Russo-Chinese hegemony through a banking scheme. What does this have to do with Castrogonia? Everything. These two aggressive dictators --Putin […]

Update on the NBC Pedro Pan lie

"Proof" of CIA involvement found unconvincing by high court After my earlier post on NBC's irresponsible approach to the history of the Pedro Pan airlift, I received a wonderful surprise from a reader: access to legal documents that clear the CIA of involvement in the Pedro Pan airlift. Go HERE if you want to see […]
