Superb Interview with Barack Obama @ Politico

Obama: ‘You are right to be concerned’

ICE needs to be iced. It is the Gestapo of Donald Trump against immigrants.

Save the USA!

WASHINGTON — At least 19 Immigration and Customs Enforcement investigators are seeking to dissolve the agency, concerned that the Trump administration’s crackdown on illegal migrants has limited their ability to pursue national security threats, child pornography and transnational crime.

Is Donald Trump looking for any excuse to please the Miami fascists and break diplomatic relations with Cuba?

It looks that way, according to a story from the WSJ.

Cuba will not kneel before Trump and his fascists in Miami. He does not know shit about Cuba.

Here is the excuse that Trump will use: US says another American suffers illness at its Cuba embassy

We will remember in November. The U.S. is a declining nation. It has very few friends. It is disliked around the world

Democratic Socialists of America Membership Surges After Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Stunning Victory

Thursday, June 28, 2018

Bernie Sanders Weighs In on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez' Victory

Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) candidates keep on winning.

I’m still in shock over DSA member and nationally-endorsed candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s massive win Tuesday. She beat Joe Crowley, a ten-term machine politician, the fourth-ranking Democrat in Congress, and assumed successor to Nancy Pelosi, by 13%.

And she’s not the only DSA victory in Tuesday’s primaries. In Maryland, two candidates endorsed by Metro DC DSA won their primaries for the Maryland House of Delegates: Gabriel Acevero (District 39) and Vaughn Stewart (District 19). And in Colorado, locally-endorsed Julie Gonzales won her primary for State Senate in District 34.

"If the party of Lincoln and Eisenhower and Teddy Roosevelt and Reagan is to be redeemed and resurrected, then the party of Trump must be obliterated. Annihilated. Destroyed," he said. "And all of the collaborators, the complicit enablers, the school of cowards, need to go down. Maybe something can regenerate from that."

Prensa Latina: More About Victoria Burgess

Havana, Jun 26 (Prensa Latina) US Victoria Burgess began today a more-than-90-mile paddleboard journey separating Marina Hemingway Yacht Club, in the west of Havana, to Key West. During the strenuous tour, planed for about 25 hours, the athlete will be accompanied by a support boat and a team for nutrition and safety.

Burges' main objectives are to be the first woman to perform such a feat and be an ambassador of peace and friendship between the peoples of Cuba and the United States.

The 33-year-old American has experience in many sports such as basketball, volleyball and water polo.

She has also participated in famous distant paddleboard races, such as that in Molokai to Oahu, and Maui to Molokai.

In August 2013, her compatriot Benjamin Friberg won that same test after 28 hours of paddling, standing, on a surfboard, an unprecedented event until then.

The crossing of the Straits of Florida, starting from Cuba, has been a challenge for several athletes of the world, especially the United States, and in different modalities that go from swimming with or without a cage against sharks to surfing.

Victoria Burgess to Paddle-board from Havana Hemingway Marina to Key-West

South Florida standup paddleboarder Victoria Burgess will attempt to paddle across the Straits of Florida from Cuba to Key West. Dubed the Chica Libre SUP Crossing, the world record attempt as the first female to standup paddle (SUP) across the Straits, Burgess plans to achieve the 100–120 mile paddle within 30 hours. As a sports enthusiast, she aims to raise awareness of equality for women in sport and will donate her proceeds to the Women’s Sports Foundation, which has been supporting women in sports for over 40 years.

WSJ Capitalists & Donald Trump are scared shitless that AMLO may win the presidency of Mexico

June 24, 2018 1:51 p.m. ET

With one week to go before Mexico’s July 1 presidential election, most polls favor left-wing candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador of the Morena Party by at least 10 points. (WSJ)

Mary Anastasia O’Grady (“Trump’s Mexico Problem,” Americas, June 4) is right to alert readers that if Andrés Miguel López Obrador becomes Mexico’s president, he will likely forge an ideological and political alliance with Cuba and Venezuela.

AMLO increases lead in Mexico's Presidential Polls

The poll, which was released on Sunday, showed former Mexico City mayor AMLO had 37.7 percent of voter support. Meanwhile, his closest rival Ricardo Anaya, from the center-right National Action Party (PAN) and coalition For Mexico to the Front, fell 0.3 points to 20 percent since May. Consulta Mitofsky surveyed some 1,000 voters from June 16-19.

Cuba slightly [?] loosens controls on state media

Sounds like a female that is 'slightly' pregnant.


"Cuban journalists tell The Associated Press that the Political Bureau of the Communist Party, one of the country’s most powerful bodies, recently approved a document known as the “New Communication Policy” that is aimed at giving state media more ability to report news like their colleagues do in other countries."

JG: Bad sign from Cuba! Since most of the world is capitalist, does this mean that Cuba state media will try to sell you junk that is over-hyped?

News in the capitalist world is not really news. It is people trying to sell you junk. 

A Cuba Journal that is designed to sell you stuff.

Appears to have been born around 2017. They try to sell you cruises.

My own personal experience with cruise companies is that they are not very honest, which is the norm for USA capitalism.

USA Today: "youngsters in cages"

The two words in this post do not refer to the popular newspaper, but they refer to the crimes that the USA government is committing TODAY. Adolf Hitler must be very happy on his grave.

"The family separations and detentions of children at the southern U.S. border, highlighted by the videos of youngsters in cages and an audiotape of wailing children, have sparked an outcry at home and strong condemnation abroad."

"Two of the top U.S. business groups, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Business Roundtable, decried the separation policy on Tuesday and called for its immediate cessation."

"The images that have sparked widespread condemnation, of children in wire cages, are of a border patrol processing center in McAllen, Texas."


18 Minutes Ago: No more 'internment camps': Democrats disrupt congressional hearing.

18 minutes ago.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrats staged an impromptu congressional protest and moderate Republicans and key U.S. business groups pressed President Donald Trump on Tuesday to stop separating immigrant children from their parents as an opinion poll showed most Americans oppose the policy.

Drumbeat of opposition to family separation grows

Only one country today is welcoming immigrant children, Spain. It has a Socialist government, PSOE.

American Capitalism is the face of HATE.

Keep Families Together Act has 48 U.S Senators as co-sponsors. Not a single one is a Republican.

The GOP only co-sponsors the HATE of of Donald Trump against immigrant children.

Disney represents much of what is wrong with contemporary capitalism

The Walt Disney Company is an enormously profitable corporation worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $150 billion. Last year, it made $9 billion in profits and rewarded its CEO, Bob Iger, with a compensation package worth up to $423 million over a four year period. And as a result of the Trump tax cuts, they were given an additional $1.6 billion.

At the same time — and this is a national disgrace — employees at the company’s theme park in Anaheim, California are paid so poorly that many of them are literally living in a tent city not far from the park.

According to one recent study, nearly 1 in 10 workers employed at the park reported being homeless in the past two years, more than 2 in 3 say they are food insecure, and 3 out of 4 employees say they do not make enough money for their basic needs.
This is not what Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck are supposed to be about. This does not sound like the “happiest place on Earth” to me.

Now, I could be wrong, but I don’t expect you will see the plight of these low-wage workers at Disney discussed tonight on ABC, which is owned by Disney. Nor do I think you will be hearing too much about income and wealth inequality in the mainstream media.

That is why I am heading to California this weekend to rally with these workers and union organizers fighting to demand that Disney pay all of its workers a living wage.
Those workers could use your support as well:
