Walesa saw US leadership and does not see it now

Former President Walesa of Poland spoke for millions around the world. This is what he said: "Speaking to The Associated Press Friday, Walesa said the ‘‘world is disorganized and the superpower is not taking the lead.’’ The former Solidarity leader said that when he meets Obama in Warsaw, he wants to tell him that the […]

Russia in Latin America?

Who would have believed this the day that the USSR fell in 1992? According to The HIll, Russia is looking to Latin America for alliances: "Russia’s defense minister says the country is planning bases in Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua, and just last week, Putin’s national security team met to discuss increasing military ties in the […]

An update about Venezuela and Latin America

We spoke with Fausta Wertz, editor of Fausta's Blog, about the situation in Venezuela. Fausta published a new post called "The left and reality": "Lefties firmly believe the deceased Hugo Chavez “improved the economy drastically and ameliorated poverty drastically” because GDP went up, and fewer people were living below the poverty line by the time […]

El Salvador: “Que pasa despues que cuenten los votos”?

We looked at the elections in El Salvador with Miguel Portillo-Cuadra and Fausta Wertz, the editor of Fausta's Blog...... The question on the table is simple:  What happens after they count votes? Elections in El Salvador by Silvio Canto Jr on 3/11/2014  http://t.co/Ir8WEar03f http://t.co/R9NqmW0UeJ — Silvio Canto, Jr. (@SCantojr) March 11, 2014  

CPAC 2014: Cruz and Rubio

Yesterday's speeches by Sen. Ted Cruz and Sen. Marco Rubio at the 2014 CPAC were good, strong, fearless, and inspiring... More outstanding CPAC videos: The Honorable John Bolton Mark Levin's “Andrew Breitbart Defender of the First Amendment” Award

What if Obama had supported the protesters in Venezuela?

(This is my post at American Thinker) Once again, President Obama has missed a chance to put the US with the people of a country rebelling against a corrupt regime. Remember Iran in 2009?  Remember when Iranians took to the streets to protest a corrupt election?  President Obama stood silent and watched the regime commit atrocities. […]

Cuba today: “Los Castros no quieren cambio”

(This is my new Cuba post over at American Thinker) We've seen this movie many times before.  It starts with a country giving Cuba a line of credit or going around the US embargo.  It is followed by high expectations that Cuba will change once Cubans in the island greet foreign tourists or Spaniards build […]

Dear President Obama: “Tu nuevo embajador a la Argentina nunca ha visitado Argentina”

(This is my American Thinker post about our new ambassador to Argentina.) Let's be fair and admit that ambassadorships are often handed out to friends of the president.   So I will cut President Obama some slack if he chooses a political friend to fill an ambassador's post. But not Argentina. Not today's Argentina. Senator […]

“No me digas”: The Obama Care website “habla Spanglish”!

Why is anyone surprised?   The Spanish Obama Care website is a mess! The Obama Care website is frustrating Spanish speakers: "The site, CuidadoDeSalud.gov, launched more than two months late. A Web page with Spanish instructions linked users to an English form. And the translations were so clunky and full of grammatical mistakes that critics […]

Donde esta la “guagua?”: We have to throw another one under the bus!

Let's throw another one under the bus.   It's getting very crowded down there. Let's place it right next to the one about keeping your own policy!   And not far from Rev Wright! According to Peter Suderman, another one of the reasons for The Affordable Health Care Act has met reality: "Supporters of Obamacare […]

“Barbara y su falso mesías”

Barbara Walters admitted the obvious, i.e. too many people got caught up in Obama the Messiah: "Barbara Walters said the difficulties engulfing President Barack Obama are a reflection of the let-down people are feeling from the high expectations they had during his earliest days in office when she and others thought he was going to […]

Obam(ACA)re is at The Center of Obama Slipping With Hispanics

From Florida Watchdog: Lost in translation: Once-supportive Hispanics turning backs on Obama, ACA MIAMI – They were among President Obama’s best supporters, but support for the president and his signature health insurance scheme is quickly dying among Hispanics. A recent Gallup poll showed Obama’s approval rating among Hispanic down 23 percent, to 52 percent in […]

Today in 1991: “El dia que se acabo la URSS”

It was not "nosotros que nos queremos tanto debemos separarnos....", like the famous romantic song from pre-Castro Cuba. It was more practical than that.   It was a realization that the USSR was no longer a viable country. On this day in 1991, we heard that it was over: "After a long meeting between Soviet […]

“Oye compay, que semana”: We talk Cuba with Jorge Ponce!

Jorge Ponce and I looked back at this big "semana" of Cuba news. It started with the handshake, talk of Dr Gross, calls for lifting the embargo, to more of Alberto's posts about human rights violations in the island. Even Elian made the news this week.  Wonder if someone told Elian that his mother died to […]

Obam(ACA)re* Looks A Lot Like CastroCare

ObamaCare architect Zeke Emanuel will now explain to you unwashed dolts exactly why you cannot keep that doctor you have been seeing for years and years, and trust with your medical history, (real) healthcare, and life... Got that, dummies? 1) Because Obama did not say you could have unlimited "choice". Where the Hell did you […]
