Well, one could say she earned it. After going on social media to trash Jews and urge all Arab countries to join the fight against Israel, and subsequently offering to go to Gaza to shoot down Israelis, the deceptively bovine Aleida Guevara has been given a show on the Beirut-based Al Mayadeen channel, starting next year with a first season of 54 shows. She is scheduled to comment on current events and offer personal anecdotes “in a simple and sincere way.”
The communist Castro dictatorship’s human rights violations and human trafficking are well known. Not so well known is the regime’s role in drug trafficking. With its strategic position just 90 miles from the U.S. coast and a corrupt government that will do anything for cash, Cuba was the perfect steppingstone for the narcotics trafficking route of Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar. And the Castro dictatorship was more than happy to oblige.
Cuban dissident artist and prisoner of conscience Luis Manuel Otero Alcantara is celebrating his 36th birthday today in a Castro gulag. This is the second birthday Otero Alcantara celebrates in a Cuban prison since his arrest during the July 11, 2021 protests on the island. This is socialism in action.
For much of the first two years of the so-called “revolution,” Fidel Castro denied he was a communist. In fact, he did it on “Meet the Press” when he visited the U.S. in 1959. Nevertheless, there were many people who had serious doubts, from Vice President Richard Nixon to many Cubans on the island.

Aaaah, the many pleasures of living in a communist totalitarian dictatorship. Imagine living in a country where no one dares to complain. Such peace, such harmony. Everyone goes with the flow, merrily.
The Cuban State Looks to the Private Sector To Repair Hospitals
Two private enterprises from Ciego de Ávila will be in charge of repairing the ward for patients with respiratory diseases at the Doctor Antonio Luaces Iraola Pediatric Hospital. The official press, which spread the news on Tuesday, did not explain if the choice of private over State companies is due to the lack of the regime’s resources to restore its own hospitals.
From our Bureau of Moribund Sugar Kings
Once upon a time, Cuba was the world’s sugar king, exporting vast amounts of the sweet stuff to the whole world. Then the so-called “Revolution” came along. You know the rest of the story. Castro, Inc. has crippled sugar production to such a great extent that there may not be enough sugar to produce rum this year.
“From Belarus, with love”
The communist Castro dictatorship has done nothing to earn any cooperation from free nations. In fact, it continues to brazenly and unapologetically commit crimes against humanity. In an open letter from the Center for a FREE Cuba, the leadership of the human rights organization calls on the EU to pause and reevaluate its cooperation agreement with the murderous Cuban regime.
The Cuban military is holding meetings with its Belarusian military counterparts in Havana to discuss the expansion of military cooperation between the two Putin allies. In those meetings, Cuba has expressed interest in buying short-range missiles from Belarus. Unless the communist regime is planning on launching short-range missiles at Key West, they have no use for them other than to resell them at a hefty profit to terrorist groups. It wouldn’t be the first time the Castro dictatorship arms terrorists, and while it remains in power, it won’t be the last.
The U.S. State Department has decided to keep Cuba on the State Sponsors of Terrorism list for another year, which will certainly lead to another hissy fit by the Cuban dictatorship. Cuba joins their terrorist allies Iran, Syria, and North Korea for another year on the list.
We remember Winston Churchill who was born on this day in 1874 and died in 1965. He was one of the great leaders of the 20th century and UK Prime Minister 1940-1945 and 1951-55. Churchill was also a great author and won the Nobel Prize in Literature for his six-volume history of World War II and for political speeches.
