State of the Union? REAL BAD!

During the last 12 months the nation has been going steadily on a DOWNHILL slope.

Trump brought to the White House: Racism, Hate and Phobias.

The USA is no longer admired throughout the world.

James K. Polk

James K. Polk was the first U.S. President to promote what later on would be called 'Yankee Imperialism.' During Polk's presidency, the U.S. expanded significantly with the annexation of the Republic of Texas, the Oregon Territory, and the Mexican Cession following the American victory in the Mexican–American War. [The Mexican-American War was an illegal conflict started by Polk for the sole purpose of stealing Mexican lands.]

Yankee Imperialism was started by stealing lands from their rightful owners. The same thing that the Israeli Zionists are doing today in the area now called Israel, which used to belong to the Palestinians. 

Zionists + Yankees = Thiefs of the Worst Kind.

Part of the above, but not all, was taken from Wikipedia.

Now you know how Yankee Imperialism started.

USA and Israel are big 'partners in crime.'

I do not get tired of saying it every day


Give me a break department.

"Top Democratic leaders in Congress made the announcement Thursday evening, calling Kennedy a "relentless fighter for working Americans."  (NPR)

The guy is a capitalist millionaire responding to another capitalist millionarie in the White House.

Roxangel Obregón is the new star in Cuban Femenine Chess


La adolescente Roxangel Obregón culminó en la segunda plaza 
de la Semifinal Nacional.
 Autor: Juventud Rebelde Publicado: 23/01/2018 | 12:20 pm

Las nueve rondas de la Semifinal Nacional femenina de ajedrez pasaron a los registros estadísticos este fin de semana en Holguín, y luego de concluido el certamen, quedó elaborada la lista definitiva de las doce jugadores que intervendrán en la final de Cuba, prevista a empezar el próximo lunes hasta el 9 de febrero en la holguinera Academia Eradio Domínguez Ocampo.

El preludio de la discusión de la corona, que contó con la participación de diez trebejistas de seis provincias, mostró las afortunadas que lograron los cuatro cupos en porfía para el certamen conclusivo. El cuarteto de vanguardia lo conformó la curtida habanera Vivian Ramón (2161), la adolescente villaclareña Roxangel Obregón (2073), la experimentada santiaguera Zirka Frómeta (2083) y la joven mayabequense Yeny Sánchez (2087). 

La habanera Ramón, vencedora siete veces del título nacional y la última ocasión que lo conquistó fue en el año 2000, comandó la justa con seis unidades, mientras que con 5.5 puntos quedaron Obregón, de 14 años de edad y triple campeona escolar de la Isla según el colega Osmany Pedraza, y Frómeta, quien ha sabido ganar tres ediciones del Campeonato Nacional para damas. Mientras que Sánchez, de 20 almanaques, acumuló cinco rayitas.

Ellas cuatro se unirán a las ocho trebejistas que por su condición de preseleccionadas nacionales están sembradas en la final, instancia en la que resaltan la actual titular del país, la pinareña Yerisbel Miranda (2272), y la indómita Maritza Arribas (2250), máxima acumuladora de cetros domésticos con once.

Grand Salami by Danel Castro in the bottom of the ninth inning. There will be a game 7 tomorrow Sunday.

A poem by Yehonatan Geffen for Ahed Tamimi

Ahed Tamimi

A beautiful 17-year-old girl did a terrible thing

And when a proud Israeli officer

Once again invaded her home

She slapped him

She was born into it and in that slap

Were contained 50 years of occupation and humiliations.

And on the day the story of the struggle is told,

You, Ahed Tamimi,

With red hair,

Like David who slapped Goliath,

Will be mentioned in the same line  

As Joan of Arc, Hannah Szenes and Anne Frank.

The 11 most anti-capitalist quotes from Martin Luther King Jr. (Raw Story)

“I imagine you already know that I am much more socialistic in my economic theory than capitalistic… [Capitalism] started out with a noble and high motive… but like most human systems it fell victim to the very thing it was revolting against. So today capitalism has out-lived its usefulness.” – Letter to Coretta Scott, July 18, 1952.

“In a sense, you could say we’re involved in the class struggle.” –Quote to New York Times reporter, José Igelsias, 1968.

“And one day we must ask the question, ‘Why are there forty million poor people in America? And when you begin to ask that question, you are raising questions about the economic system, about a broader distribution of wealth.’ When you ask that question, you begin to question the capitalistic economy. And I’m simply saying that more and more, we’ve got to begin to ask questions about the whole society…” –Speech to Southern Christian Leadership Conference Atlanta, Georgia, August 16, 1967.

“Capitalism forgets that life is social. And the kingdom of brotherhood is found neither in the thesis of communism nor the antithesis of capitalism, but in a higher synthesis.” –Speech to Southern Christian Leadership Conference Atlanta, Georgia, August 16, 1967.

“Call it democracy, or call it democratic socialism, but there must be a better distribution of wealth within this country for all God’s children.” – Speech to the Negro American Labor Council, 1961.

“We must recognize that we can’t solve our problem now until there is a radical redistribution of economic and political power… this means a revolution of values and other things. We must see now that the evils of racism, economic exploitation and militarism are all tied together… you can’t really get rid of one without getting rid of the others… the whole structure of American life must be changed. America is a hypocritical nation and [we] must put [our] own house in order.”- Report to SCLC Staff, May 1967.

“The evils of capitalism are as real as the evils of militarism and evils of racism.” –Speech to SCLC  Board, March 30, 1967.

“I am now convinced that the simplest approach will prove to be the most effective – the solution to poverty is to abolish it directly by a now widely discussed matter: the guaranteed income… The curse of poverty has no justification in our age. It is socially as cruel and blind as the practice of cannibalism at the dawn of civilization, when men ate each other because they had not yet learned to take food from the soil or to consume the abundant animal life around them. The time has come for us to civilize ourselves by the total, direct and immediate abolition of poverty.” – Where do We Go from Here?, 1967.

“You can’t talk about solving the economic problem of the Negro without talking about billions of dollars. You can’t talk about ending the slums without first saying profit must be taken out of slums. You’re really tampering and getting on dangerous ground because you are messing with folk then. You are messing with captains of industry. Now this means that we are treading in difficult water, because it really means that we are saying that something is wrong with capitalism.” – Speech to his staff, 1966.

“[W]e are saying that something is wrong … with capitalism…. There must be better distribution of wealth and maybe America must move toward a democratic socialism.” – Speech to his staff, 1966.

“If America does not use her vast resources of wealth to end poverty and make it possible for all of God’s children to have the basic necessities of life, she too will go to hell.” Speech at Bishop Charles Mason Temple of the Church of God in Christ in support of the Memphis sanitation workers’ strike on March 18th, 1968, two weeks before he was assassinated.

As a consequence, masses of people find themselves excluded and marginalised: without work, without possibilities, without any means of escape.”

Oregon congressman to boycott Trump's State of the Union speech

By Gordon R. Friedman gfriedman@oregonian.com

The Oregonian/OregonLive

U.S. Rep. Earl Blumenauer says he will not attend President Trump's first State of the Union address.

The bowtie-sporting Democratic congressman tweeted last week that instead of hearing "another destructive, divisive speech" by the president, he will stay in Oregon to meet with constituents.

"Hearing from Oregonians and working together to protect our values and advance policies that actually strengthen our communities is a more productive use of my time," said Blumenauer, 69.

Now in his 11th term in Congress, Blumenauer has long been a vocal opponent of Trump and his agenda.

He introduced legislation last year called the "No TRUMP Act" in response to reports that federal officials have spent taxpayer dollars at Trump-owned properties. He also introduced a bill that would make it easier to remove the president via the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which allows cabinet-level officials to declare the president unfit for duty.

Neither bills have a shot at passing the Republican-controlled Congress.

Are capitalists shitting on their pants?

Beware of capitalist predators in the USA!

Cuba should stay away from USA capitalists.

THEY ARE EVIL PEOPLE.

An Open Email to My House Representative, Darren Soto

Dear Representative Soto:

I am writing to ask you to actively support the impeachment of Donald Trump. He is a RACIST President who continues to embarrass the American people on a daily basis.

His recent statement about "shithole countries" is a very racist statement. It is an insult to all Americans. We are a nation of immigrants and he needs to read the inscription on the Statue of Liberty in the New York harbor.

He does not deserve to continue as POTUS.

This issue is to me more important than the Cuba Embargo issue, which I oppose 100%.

Make us proud and help us remove Donald Trump from the White House.

I thank you for your time.

JRG

Dictator Trump, Racist POTUS

WASHINGTON.–Donald Trump, acostumbrado a generar divisiones y confrontación, logró poner de acuerdo al mundo y a buena parte de Estados Unidos en una cosa: el presidente es un racista.

Según reveló el diario Washington Post, el mandatario calificó de «países de mierda» (en inglés la frase es aún más despectiva: shithole countries, que podría traducirse también como agujeros de mierda) a Haití, El Salvador y otras naciones africanas durante una reunión privada en la Casa Blanca.

«Por qué tenemos a toda esta gente de países (que son un) agujero de mierda viniendo aquí», habría dicho tras escuchar la propuesta de un grupo de legisladores para evitar que cientos de miles de migrantes perdieran sus beneficios en Estados Unidos.  Luego se preguntó por qué no recibían, en su lugar, a más personas de otros países como Noruega.

El Gobierno de El Salvador envió una nota de protesta a EE. UU. en respuesta a las «lamentables» declaraciones atribuidas al Presidente.

La Cancillería de la nación centroamericana explicó en un comunicado que esperó «prudentemente» a que se produjera un pronunciamiento oficial de Washington para «aclarar o desmentir» estas declaraciones.

Sin embargo, únicamente a través de las redes sociales han trascendido algunas reacciones de Trump que confirman «implícitamente» el uso de términos duros «en menoscabo de la dignidad de El Salvador» y de otros países, señaló.

Haití, por su parte, repudió «con vehemencia» las palabras ofensivas del gobernante estadounidense.

El embajador haitiano en EE. UU., Paul Altidor, rechazó los comentarios de Trump, al considerar que están «basados en estereotipos». «O el presidente ha sido mal informado o no ha sido bien educado», añadió.

«In the hole» (En el hueco), es la respuesta del artista Anthony Russo a los recientes comentarios del presidente acerca de la inmigración. 

«Los haitianos luchamos junto a los soldados estadounidenses en la guerra de independencia de Estados Unidos y seguimos siendo grandes contribuyentes a la sociedad estadounidense», recordó Altidor.

Mientras el jefe de Estado boliviano, Evo Morales, señaló a través de Twitter que, «al insultar a países africanos, El Salvador y Haití, Trump insulta al mundo y demuestra que su lenguaje y políticas están contaminados de racismo, fascismo, soberbia e ignorancia del capitalismo. La historia ha demostrado que los que ofenden así, terminan tragándose sus palabras».

La Oficina del alto comisionado de Naciones Unidas para los Derechos Humanos calificó este viernes como «racistas» los comentarios del Presidente.

«No hay otra palabra que pueda usarse, aparte de racista», afirmó el portavoz del organismo con sede en Ginebra, Rupert Colville, citado por Reuters. «Esto no es solo una historia sobre lenguaje vulgar, se trata de abrir la puerta al peor lado de la humanidad, de validar y fomentar el racismo y la xenofobia».

No es la primera vez que el mandatario hace titulares por comentarios de esa clase. «Todos tienen Sida», dijo Trump en junio del año pasado, también en el Despacho Oval, sobre 15 000 haitianos que habían llegado a EE. UU. desde su toma de posesión. Sobre otros 40 000 nigerianos, el republicano pidió: «Que vuelvan a sus cabañas en África».

El nuevo escándalo llega tras la publicación del polémico libro Fuego y Furia. En de la Casa Blanca de Trump, que describe el caos de la nueva administración y describe al Presidente como ignorante, racista e inculto.
