Obama promotes a PLETHORA! of U.S./Cuba cultural exchanges!

“Cultural exchanges with foreign countries are our most effective propaganda” (Soviet KGB document, May, 20, 1981. Discovered and translated by Vladimir Bukovsky) The rapprochement between the two countries (U.S.-Cuba) is turning what was a small stream of artistic exchanges into a powerful river.( Jordan Levin, Miami Herald, June 6, 2015) Forging a new path to […]

“I’m in with the in crowd,” sings former Bush Sec. of Commerce Carlos Gutierrez ( who Flip-Flops totally–now backs Obama on Cuba)

"I'm in with the in crowd I go where the in crowd goes I'm in with the in crowd And I know what the in crowd knows" (Dobie Gray, 1964) "We should continue with Obama's policy towards Cuba. We have nothing to lose." (Former Bush Sec. of Commerce Carlos Gutierrez to Spain's El Pais, May […]

“See No Terror, Hear No Terror, Speak No Terror” (Obama on Cuba)

Today’s further diplomatic benediction of Cuba by Obama means that the estimated $4.2 billion already flowing from the U.S. to Cuba annually will crank up nicely. This windfall resulted from Obama’s flurry of executive orders abolishing Presidents Reagan and Bush’s travel and remittance restrictions to Castro’s fiefdom. In brief, almost every year since Obama took […]

I’m more puzzled than Geisha Boy. Why an “Olive Branch” from Obama to Florida Cubans at Ermita Shrine? Why Not Roses?

From the Miami Herald: "President Obama extended a symbolic olive branch Thursday to Miami's Cuban-Americans by paying his respects to the shrine to Our Lady of Charity of El Cobre in Coconut Grove. I am greatly puzzled because according to Websters: To extend an olive branch: to make an offer of peace or to approach […]

Ann Coulter don’t take no mess! (from Univison’s Jorge Ramos) le metio tremenda bofetada!

Here's what GENUINE Political INcorrectness looks like: “There are cultures that are obviously deficient, and if they weren’t deficient, you (Jorge Ramos) wouldn’t be sitting in America interviewing me, I (Ann Coulter) would be sitting in Mexico. You fled that culture.” Much more hideously politically-INcorrect fun here. ("Se la comio esa Ann!" "as if Univision […]

“Cuba Sponsors Terrorists who have murdered more Americans than ISIS!–Stop and listen to Me! Look, you fools, you’re in danger! Can’t you see?!”

In The Invasion of the Body Snatchers Kevin McCarthy certainly had some difficulty in getting his message across. But no more than the people currently trying to alert U.S. officaldom to Cuba's (90 miles away--not 6000 like ISIS) sponsorship of terror group that has murdered more AMericans than has ISIS. Consider the following overwhelming proof […]

“Why did Elian’s mother leave Cuba? She was living the good life.” asks ABC’s Jim Avila

"Why did Elian’s mother leave Cuba?” the furrow-browed Jim Avila asked the (then) NBC cameras in April 2000. “What was she escaping? By all accounts this young woman was living the good life.” "Would it occur to a presumably educated reporter to ask why someone tried escaping East Germany? Of course not. They’d be laughed […]

Ted Cruz Don’t Take No Mess! (He unleashes his inner Cuban –mando la prensa pal carajo!, but very elegantly, no griteria)

"Pappa Don't Take No Mess!" (and neither does Ted Cruz) From Real Clear Politic (no less!) Presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz made a campaign stop in Beaumont, TX on Tuesday, May 19. He was asked repeatedly by Kevin Steele from KMBT-TV about the issue of gay marriage, to which Cruz responds by turning the tables. […]

“I consider Fidel Castro my father,” Elian Gonzalez (Rosemary’s Baby Alive and Well)

"I am his friend but above all I consider him my father, my grandfather,” (Elian Conzalez, May 20, 2015.) Which mother suffers most? Rosemary? Or Elizabeth Brotons? (Elian's mother.) For all their sacrifices--and all they knew during gestation--their babies now serve the same master.

Casualties in Waco’s “Biker Battle” twice those of Cuba’s “Battle of Santa Clara,” where commader Che “Blood ‘n Guts!” Guevara earned his eternal military fame!

The biker battle in Waco this week-end killed nine hoodlums. That's over twice as many killed in action as during the most celebrated and epic battle of the (media-concocted) "war" by (bogus) comandante Fidel Castro's (phony) guerrillas against Batista's (joke of an) army. But perhaps I'm a bit biased in these matters and have grown […]

The true horror of Castroism: Today’s ABC interview with (Brain-Dead) Elian Gonzalez

  Forget the crumbling buildings and trashy streets of Havana for a second. Above and below are scenes showing the true horror of Castroism: not what it does to a nation's infrastructure--but what it does to the mind and spirit of its subjects. From today's interview with Elian the Zombie: "To the American people, first […]

French Hospitality industry partners with Stalinists who occupy Cuba

In honor of the French hotel and liquor companies currently setting up a collaboration with the Stalinist occupiers of Cuba we offer clips of another occupation, where much of the French hospitality industry also collaborated...this seems only proper... "The French company Warwick International Hotels & Resorts (WIH) took its first steps in Cuban tourism with […]

Hidden camera captures the skepticism of hard-nosed investigative reporters from Washington Post reacting to Castro press-release in Havana

Does the Washington Post Believe in Faith-Healing? In fact, Hillbilly snake-handlers have better evidence for their beliefs than does the Washington Post for their faith in the claims of serial-liar Castro. Just ask any Cuba-watcher. You’d really, really hope that at this stage of the game most people—especially “ultra-educated” and ultra-skeptical Beltway reporters—would display a […]

“Brother Castro has found the cure for Cancer and Menningitis! Can we get a witness! Praise da LORD!!!” (according to the Washington Post)

From the Washington Post: " Americans could soon be thanking Fidel Castro for their revolutionary cancer drugs. Cuban immunologists made several other vaccination breakthroughs, including their own vaccines for meningitis B and hepatitis B, and monoclonal antibodies for kidney transplants.” All this is even more impressive considering the crippling embargo that America has imposed on […]

“Pope Backs Sanctions for South Africa” ( New York Times headline, Sept.11,1988) Consistency, Please, Vatican.

POPE BACKS SANCTIONS FOR SOUTH AFRICA--"At the start of a five-nation tour of Africa, Pope John Paul II today offered his approval of the strict economic sanctions against South Africa now under consideration by the United States Congress. He said such measures are morally acceptable as a last resort in the struggle against apartheid. (NY […]
