In defense of ‘white and privileged’ Cuban-Americans

(MY AMERICAN THINKER POST) It's time to put the left on suicide watch, because they are saying and writing some rather stupid things. The latest is Ann Louise Bardach, author and columnist.  She just wrote an article over at the NY Times (where else?) about Cuban Americans: Most Americans are under the impression that the Republican Party is […]

Joe García and President Obama can’t fool Cuban-Americans

A man, a president, a politician, and just about anybody else who cannot keep his word cannot be trusted to look after the welfare of others. If you are president of the United States, you cannot be trusted if you keep flip-flopping on your promises to them. The "audacity of hope" becomes nothing more than […]

Join the Vigil to Protest the Obama-Castro Pact

Here is a call to join a vigil to protest the Obama-Castro pact. The late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., once said: “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends." Let’s heed his powerful message, and join ranks in this vigil. When: Thursday, January 22, […]

PASSIONATE HISPANICS???

Often, Hispanics in the United States are criticized for being too passionate. Going by the quote below from British author Simon Sinek, I guess that a great many Hispanics – especially Babalugers -- are passionate lovers! I take the latter anytime over "Batista sympathizers!"

OBAMA — THE FIRST LATINO PRESIDENT???!!!

Outrageous article below and outrageous idea to consider! Rep. Mario Díaz-Balart (R-Fla.) is on point when he said that Obama's Cuba Initiative represents "a limitless willingness to appease enemies of freedom," and a "grotesque concession." U.S. Secretary of Labor Tom Perez, the son of Dominican immigrants, has shown his true colors.  Not only is he delusional by […]

TWO BROTHERS! ONE DREAM! LIBERTAD!

For those of you who have wondered why most Cuban-Americans take such a hardline posture when it comes to Cuba, I encourage you to watch the ESPN video “30 for 30: “Brothers in Exile.” The video recounts the story of brothers Livan and Orlando “El Duque” Hernandez – two Cubans who defected to the United […]
