WE AIN’T GOT, NO SATISFACTION!

Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones celebrates his seventy-first birthday today. It’s a celebration for him. But for Cuban-Americans, they get “no satisfaction” when they think about the significance that this date has for them. For Cuban-Americans, today is a sad day to remember. On July 26, 1953, a group of 135 rebels led by […]

ALICIA ALONSO IS SHOCKED!

Alicia Alonso of the National Ballet of Cuba ponders the reasons that triggered eight of its dances to defect during a recent performance in Puerto Rico. I am certain that Alicia is also wondering what ever happened to the “patria-o-muerte” convictions of these dancers after the long and arduous indoctrination that they received at public […]

Embargo? What about the $7 Billion that the Castro Dictatorship Expropriated!

(My new American Thinker post) We hear that it’s time to lift the Cuban embargo. However, lifting the embargo means nothing unless you are willing to talk about the $7 billion that the Castro regime expropriated in violation of property rights and the rule of law. According to Leon Neyhakh, we must address the issue of […]

Engagement with Cuba and those “reforms”

Engagement with Cuba, via trade and tourism will create a middle class, which in turn will create the necessary conditions for democracy. In spite of all evidence to the contrary, that mindset is endlessly espoused within articles and comments about Cuba in the media. It seems entrenched doctrine when it comes to U.S. Cuba relations, […]

Raul Castro wants ‘los capitalistas americanos’ to bail out ‘los socialistas cubanos’

(My new American Thinker post) The Cuban government has just announced the latest version of "foreign investment reforms." Before you go and put a dime in Cuba's corrupt communist government, please consider what my friend Alberto de la Cruz posted yesterday: "The most important flaw that is obvious from the outset is the legal aberration of expressly excluding […]
