Recently I had a phone conversation with Abelardo Arteaga in Tampa. He is an American who was born in the continental USA, but his ethnic roots are in Cuba. He is related to the infamous Cuban Cardinal Arteaga, who was always present at all the parties and receptions given by Cuban Dictator Fulgencio Batista before the Cuban people threw him out on 1-1-1959.
Cardinal Arteaga was also the person who gave me first communion when I was eight years old. I no longer believe in all the garbage that organized-religion disseminates. They are nothing but a huge business and they don't even pay taxes. They are parasites.
I have been "converted" to Karl Marx's dictum: "Religion is the opium of the masses."
The fact that Abelardo had some bad relatives is not his fault. He is not not responsible for the sins committed by members of his family.
I was not able to convince Abelardo not to vote for Barack Obama. He is a Democratic Party member first, an American citizen second, and third he is a person who had relatives in Cuba.
He is a good person and he is 93 years old. He is very wise beyond all his years.
He is a believer in religion, and he said to me on the phone, "America is going to be punished by God for all that is doing around the world."
I agreed, and I told him: "God is already punishing the United States for all the immoral acts and atrocities that it is commiting. Extra-judicial assassinations by drones against American citizens is just one of the many things that Barack Obama and his gang of Chicago gangsters is doing today.
Huricane Katrina and Hurricane Sandy's destruction is what the U.S. so richly deserves from the Almighty. Is God punishing the U.S.? Abelardo would answer in the affirmative.
It is merely a matter of time before a mushroom cloud will rise over one of America's cities. And then there will be crying and the gnashing of teeth.
But, I digress. The news today are not very happy for the millions of people who would like to see peace between the USA and Cuba.
John Kerry turns out to be a bigger fraud than Hillary Clinton or the Gangster from Chicago, Barack Obama.
Read the following and cry! The Miami Gusano-Fascists will party today!
ABC World News:
According to the U.S. State Department, the world's most prolific
terrorist groups are supported by the government of Iran, Sudan, Syria
and Cuba. But while Iran, Sudan and Syria have well-known and documented
current ties to various terrorists groups, Cuba's place on the list has
increasingly come under fire.
These four countries are considered "state sponsors of terrorism" that,
according to the United States, have "repeatedly provided support for
acts of international terrorism." They are subject to the harshest
sanctions the U.S. can impose, including travel bans, financial
transactions and trade.
Last week the Boston Globe
reported that Secretary of State John Kerry is planning to remove Cuba
from the list, and that Obama administration officials no longer believe
the Caribbean country meets the requirements to be labeled a state
sponsor of terror.
State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland told reporters that the Globe's report was untrue.
"This department has no current plans to remove Cuba from the state
sponsor of terrorism list," said Nuland. "We review this every year, and
at the current moment we -- when the last review was done in 2012
--didn't see cause to remove them."
That doesn't mean there aren't advocates within the U.S. government who think America's policy towards Cuba needs to change.
Senator Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., who led a delegation of U.S. lawmakers
visiting the country earlier, told reporters that there needs to be more
"give and take" between the U.S. and Cuba.
"I think the worst thing that can happen is if we stay either in our
country or in their country in this 1960s, 1970s Cold War mentality,"
Leahy said on CNN's State of the Union "We're a different century now.
We should be looking at what's the future for their future and ours,
what's the future for their children and our children."
Leahy and the delegation were in Cuba to help free Alan Gross, a U.S.
development contractor who's been imprisoned on the island since 2009.
Gross was in Cuba working for the State Department's development agency
USAID, installing communications equipment, when Cuban authorities
arrested and convicted him of being a spy. Leahy met with both Gross and
President Raul Castro, telling the Cuban president that relations
between the countries would improve if Gross were set free.
But the Cubans argue that Gross's imprisonment should not have any
bearing on whether the country is considered a sponsor of terrorism.
According to U.S. law, "in order for any country to be designated as a
state sponsor of terrorism, the Secretary of State must determine that
the government of that country has repeatedly provided support for acts
of international terrorism."
Cuba was placed on the list in 1982 for harboring members of the Spanish
terror group ETA and members of Columbia's FARC. In last year's annual Country Reports on Terrorism,
the State Department said that Cuba continues "to permit fugitives
wanted in the United States to reside in Cuba and also provided support
such as housing, food ration books, and medical care for these

JG: Tell me Abelardo, are you still proud of Barack Obama?
