  • asombra: Love the photo of Jesse Jackson having a Little Richard moment: “Lucille!…”

  • asombra: I’m sorry, but Putin is a mutant. Normal people do NOT look like that.

  • asombra: This is beyond perfect. It’s the embodiment of Latrine-ness. Instant classic.

Cuba “embargo” (calmly) explained on L.A.’s rollicking “McIntyre in the Morning” show

"Saturday Night Live could not possibly MAKE this SH*T UP, amigo!!!" raves maniacal Babalusian on Doug Mc Intyre's radio show. "Thanks to the mainstream media most Americans don't HAVE A CLUE about what's going on--and went on--in Cuba, Doug! And how the so-called embargo protects them from further theft by Castro! I even tried to […]

World Bank and IMF (i.e. U.S. taxpayers) PREPARENSE!!!

"Removal from the (terror-sponsor) list is also a first step toward Cuba's...eventual membership in the International Monetary Fund and access to development assistance through the World Bank." (Jason Marczak, deputy director of the Atlantic Council's Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center.) "What has the American taxpayer received in return for billions of dollars siphoned through the […]

“Cuba is not a Terror-Sponsor–(Castro promised! Crossed his heart and hopes to die!”) Says Obama

  "The government of Cuba has not provided any support for international terrorism during the preceding six-month period; and the government of Cuba has provided assurances that it will not support acts of international terrorism in the future."(U.S. President Barack Obama, April 14th, 2015.) In honor of this occasion we here at Babalu Blog have […]

“Want your legacy, Mr Obama?–Then Gimme Your Money Please!” (demands Castro)

  "Historic!" "groundbreaking!" blah...blah... For our many, many valued friends outside the Cuban-American informational ghetto, here's what's been really going on between Obama and Castro lately: Forget all the hyperventilating pundits wetting their pants reporting about the “diplomatic breakthrough!” the “momentous opening!” sealed with the “historic handshake!” "historic opening!" blah...blah...as if there were some monumentally […]

“You can act like a MAN!” (Don Corleone’s advice for Obama’s next summit.)

“Those Americans have a masochistic streak. They're much like women. The more you slap 'em around the better they behave.”(Brazilian President and friend of Che Guevara, Janio Quadros, after a Latin American summit in 1961.) U.S. President Barack Obama reacting yesterday to an hour long denunciation of U.S. foreign policy as "cruel" and "selfish" by […]

What would a Martian make of the Obama/Castro deal?

"Obama arrived in Panama City On April 10th for the Summit of the Americas wearing the usual sign on his back for such events, a big bold one reading: “KICK ME!” The “dissing” by Latin American leaders started much earlier, however. Since December 17th when Obama announced his “let’s be even nicer to Stalinist Cuba” […]

“The U.S. has lost all control–and even influence–in it’s own backyard (Latin America)” laughs “former” KGB colonel Nikolai Leonov

(That's KGB Colonel Leonov between Khruzchev and his Cuban charges in the black/white photos above) As if we needed any more evidence of the laughing-stock Obama's policies ( all carrot, no stick) have made us in Latrine America! The (very accurate) headline on this post is from a recent story in EFE (in Spanish here) […]

Miami Herald succinctly explains the death of Oswaldo Paya

"(Rosa Maria) Payá, whose father died in 2012 in what Cuban officials portrayed as a single-car crash," That's it. That's how the Miami Herald "backgrounds" the death of Osvaldo Paya in their article on his daughter Rosa Maria Paya's detention in Panama. Might there exist--if one really, really digs--another "portrayal" of her father's death, Miami […]

Indiana Si!–Bloqueo No!

Che Guevara-lover Johnny Depp as "Bon-Bon" in the movie based on Reinaldo Arenas memoir "Before Night Falls," which highlights the tortures of homosexuals by the regime co-founded by Che Guevara. (Le RRRRONCA!) "The shuddering fear that compelled Governor Cuomo and Mayor De Blasio to their desperate punitive measures (against Indiana) was that the jilted party […]

Hate-filled hard-liners punish the hard-working, friendly people of Indiana with a cruel, vindictive embargo

"Gov. Cuomo ( who will soon travel to Cuba) and Mayor de Blasio (who honeymooned in Cuba) said Tuesday that they are banning state and city government employees from traveling to Indiana in the wake of a controversial law that critics say would allow for discrimination against gays and lesbians." Hillary Clinton is in no […]

“Boycott travel to INDIANA!!!” ( say those promoting trade and travel with Stalinist Cuba)

The folks above deserve to be embargoed for violating civil rights These folks do not deserve to be embargoed. (That's Raul Castro himself tying the blindfold on a firing squad victim, btw.) Seems that Indiana's new law "tramples civil rights"--something unheard-of in Stalinist Cuba, the frequent destination of many of the same fine folks fulminating […]

Media Hunting Season on Ted Cruz Opens…

As if Ted Cruz didn’t already have enough against him media-wise (i.e. he’s a principled, brilliant and credentialed conservative both fiscally-- and even more odiously--socially)–on top of these offenses, he’s also half Cuban. Forget the liberal love chants to “ethnic diversity.” The Cuban ethnic brand has long flapped like a matador’s cape in front of […]

Whoopi Goldberg to Ted Cruz; “Are you talking for the Cuban or white side?”

"Whoopi Goldberg couldn’t resist the temptation to join the new “Ted Cruz birther movement” and went off on a nonsensical rant over whether Cruz talks for Cubans or “whites” when he speaks. “[Cruz is] one of the people that said, well, ‘the president, huh, you know, I want to see your birth certificate.’ And you’re […]

“People enjoy life in Cuba as in few other places.” (Time magazine March 26, 2015)

(I SWEAR I am not making this up) From Time magazine today: "Their country (Cuba) is poor and, without doubt, a security state, but also safe, literate and healthy. People enjoy life in Cuba as in few other places." But why pick on Time? A couple years ago Time's historic rival, Newsweek, hailed Cuba as […]

Polls of Cuban-Americans vs votes of Cuban-Americans (how to square them?)

"The Florida Senate is sending President Barack Obama a message that it opposes his decision to renew diplomatic relations with Cuba. The chamber voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to send a three-page letter to Obama and Congress that it is in"profound disagreement" with the decision in December to restore relations with the communist nation." The Florida Senate […]
