  • asombra: Brazil and Castro, Inc. are partners in keeping Cuba under totalitarian tyranny and in screwing over the Cuban people....

  • asombra: And I’m sorry, but “Yoaxis” and “Yordanis”? Yikes.

  • asombra: Carlos, you mean some Protestants, because the “official” ones have long been in the regime’s pocket.

  • asombra: Taking the NYT for naive IS naive. The NYT knows exactly what it’s doing–it’s been at it for over 50 years.

Breaking News: “Cuban Heels” blamed for disappearance of North Korean dictator

Wow.  Some news story... Now, this is what you call "breaking" news.... Apparently, Kim Jong Un is so short, so overweight and so vain that his use of high heels caused him to break both ankles. Yes, if this story is true, the portly North Korean dictator simply wobbled a bit too unsteadily on his […]

Washington Post highlights infantile Latrine American pro-Castro peer pressure

Awwwwww. President Obama is about to be further  embarrassed at the upcoming Summit of Latrine nations, so says the Washington Post. Since all Latrine Nations support the participation of Castrogonia at the summit --and the U.S. does not -- this obstreperousness will make the U.S. president look like a party pooper. What is the point […]

Arrrrggggh-en-teeeenah continues to emulate Castro Kingdom’s debt strategy

It's totally Latrine behavior, learned from the masters in Havana. They owe money they borrowed. They refuse to pay it back. They dub their creditors "vultures" and reject all claims as a violation of their "national sovereignty." From the unrepentant former imperialists at the BBC Argentina found to be in contempt of court by US […]

Recently-convicted Canadian businessman complains: Castro regime is unjust!

When you do business with criminals, you risk becoming their victim. In one way  -- let's call it "the way of the world"--  you can't really feel too sorry for this Canadian businessman who had no qualms about dealing with the Castro crime syndicate. And you might even say that he got what he deserved. […]

Socialists get trounced in French senate election

While countries south of the U.S. border keep going "Latrine" and electing politicians who espouse "21st century socialism,"  in France the tide seems to be flowing in the opposite direction. Is this a prelude to the November elections here in the U.S.A.? Maybe?  If France turns its back on the left and its abysmal failures, […]

Apparatchik exposes deep corruption in Castro Kingdom

From Translating Cuba, via Capitol Hill Cubans and 14ymedio: Must-Read: Real Corruption in Cuba Stems From the Very Top An official with the Housing Institute denounces corruption and privileges, as well as reprisals taken against his family. 14ymedio, September 24, 2014 – Before leaving Cuba in October, 2013, the author of this accusation occupied an […]

Extraordinary trajectory of one Cuban exile: familiar to us, big news to others

How many stories like this do you know of, personally? Maybe dozens?  Hundreds?  Maybe it's your own story? Every now and then some local newspaper far from South Florida scoops up one of these stories.   They think it's extraordinary.   Little do they know. Quite often, these small local newspapers are the only news […]

Sacrilege! Che and Hugo perfumes condemned, creators punished!

Ha!  Perhaps the ridicule proved to be too intense? Or maybe the High Priests of the Castronoid Church (a.k.a. "The Revolution") were genuinely offended because they were not consulted first? Or was it the fact that the High Priests were not promised an appropriately exorbitant share of the potential profits? Whatever the reason, someone in […]

Canadian businessman gets 15-year prison sentence in Castro Kingdom

No surprise here, except for the fact that Associated Press is actually reporting this story. Foreign businesses that don't give the Castro Mafia their cut always find themselves in hot water. Doing business with the Castro regime is a lot like doing business with any crime syndicate. Hapless Mr. Cy Tokmakjian found out the hard […]

“Rustic Vessel” of the Month: Cubans arrive in Key Biscayne after 10 days at sea

Nothing out of the ordinary here. And it is the fact that this is commonplace that is most distressing. Fourteen Cubans from Camaguey build a "rustic vessel" out of scraps of wood and steel.  They improvise some flotation devices, find a propeller, bolt down an engine from an old Russian T-40 tractor, and off they […]

So Predictable: AP regurgitates propaganda fed to it by Castro Mafia

Not much comment needed here. Same old, same old.  The Associated Press might as well be considered a branch of the Castronoid Ministry of Truth. Unfortunately, this arrangement works beautifully for the Castro Dynasty. This latest "interview" granted to AP by "one of the country's highest tourism officials" would have the world believe that there […]

South Africa gives $ 31 million gift to Castro Kingdom

Well, it's not really a gift, per se, but it amounts to that. The biggest part of the gift is a line of credit.   And the other parts of the gift are earmarked for the purchase of South African products. Good luck with that line of credit, South Africa.   You might as well […]

Ebola epidemic becomes ginormous propaganda bonanza for Castro Kingdom

Oh brother, this is perfect. Huge. Ginormous.  A propaganda victory of epic proportions. They are eating this up, those news services that regularly report on the most miniscule development in the Castro Kingdom's ceaseless pursuit of cosmetic surgery. You'd think Castrogonia was Kim Kardashian, or some other vain celebrity. This is absolutely perfect.  Africans are […]

Cubanization of Venezuela continues at breakneck speed: Power blackout cripples Caracastan

Blackouts and brown-outs are routine in Castrogonia, so why not also in Venezuela? Dictator Maduro has not yet blamed this latest power loss on "saboteurs" or  "imperialists," but it's probably due to the fact that he's too busy with United Nations business. CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Venezuela's government says parts of the capital and seven […]

A tale of two Cuban “migrants” catches the attention of Canadian news media

Here's a story about two selfish ingrates who didn't appreciate the many benefits offered to them by the benevolent government of Castrogonia. The story is buried way back in the Google News pages, probably because it appeared in a Canadian newspaper rather than on the AP or Reuters news feed. Like all such self-centered louts, […]
