The Left in Latin America knows who is promoting COMEMIERDA & Fascist Juan Guaidó in Venezuela.

Who promoted "democrat" General Fulgencio Batista in Cuba with his coup of 10 March, 1952?

The more corrupt you are, the more 'support' you will get from the USA's Yankee Imperialists.

I support Nicolas Maduro and the people of Venezuela.

The Yankees covet Venezuela's oil resources. All they care about is $$$$$.

El bigotudo John Bolton, good Nazi that he is, promotes the coup in Venezuela. And Nazi Pompeo says ditto, also.

What the people in Latin America need is more Fidel's & Che's. Capitalism sucks.

Sumar para gobernar, no ganar. Este es el mensaje con el que Pablo Iglesias ha justificado esta noche que Unidas Podemos perdiera 30 escaños (han conseguido 42) respecto a 2016 cuando con las confluencias sumaron 71 diputados. 

“Es suficiente para cumplir nuestros objetivos. Somos una fuerza política imprescindible para que haya un Gobierno de izquierda en España”, dijo el candidato. 

Iglesias llamó a Pedro Sánchez para felicitarle y le comunico su voluntad “de formar Gobierno”.

Enough has been written about Trump and his possible impeachment.

1) Trump is the most dishonest person that we have had as President.

2) He is a megalomaniac and a paranoid.

3) Impeachment is a political act. It is not a judicial trial.

4) The American people dislike Trump as never we have seen it before.

5) Will his buddies in the military stage a coup d'tat and keep him in power? Likely.

I say that a joint ticket of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren has a very strong possibility of winning in 2020.

Girón: la victoria que Estados Unidos no perdona


Victoria en Playa Girón (1961)


El asesor de Seguridad Nacional de la Casa Blanca, John Bolton, durante un discurso febril, que coincidió con el aniversario 58 del desembarco en la bahía de Cochinos, prometió a los derrotados veteranos «cocineros» y «pinches de cocina» acabar con la «troika del mal».

En el hotel Biltmore, de Coral Gables, Bolton recibió tres hurras durante su discurso: la primera, al confirmar el endurecimiento de sanciones económicas contra La Habana; la segunda, al prometer la limitación de los viajes, que volverán a ser solo familiares; la tercera, al revelar que las remesas a la Isla se limitarán por persona a mil dólares por trimestre.

Se pudo apreciar en el acto, a un Bolton sonrosado y sonriente, diríamos que hasta feliz, incapaz de vencer cierta inseguridad, tratando de controlar un ligero temblor en la voz, quizá debido a su extrema emoción. Era el primus inter pares en su ambiente, desquitándose de aquella terrible vergüenza del pasado, cuando fue atrapado mintiendo descaradamente sobre supuestas armas biológicas en poder del Gobierno cubano.

Los participantes, felices también, arropados por el jefe yanqui, se ajustaban de vez en vez sus «pampers», imprescindibles desde aquellos días de Playa Girón, para poder alzar los brazos y gritar sin peligro, con un tono un poco más firme que aquella vez, cuando con un hilo de voz clamaban: ¡Nos rendimos, yo vine de cocinero!

«Déjenme ser claro: la administración de Trump nunca, nunca los abandonará», recalcó un Bolton inspirado. «Necesitaremos su ayuda en los próximos días. Todos debemos rechazar las fuerzas del comunismo y el socialismo en este hemisferio, y en este país».

Dicen que se equivocaron al cantar el Himno Nacional cubano al inicio del acto, no es de extrañar con semejante asistencia, y que alguna que otra garganta se rajó y desafinó –eran muchas emociones juntas en un día memorable–.

Cómo olvidar tamaña jornada, cómo olvidar –esos «heroicos combatientes» con los que cuenta el actual Gobierno de los EE. UU. para enfrentar al «comunismo y al socialismo»– el 17 de abril y los días que le precedieron, las arenas de Girón, los milicianos, el pánico de la huida; cómo olvidar que de la noche a la mañana los «aguerridos» soldados de la Brigada 2506 se transformaron en «cocineros», «pinches de cocina» y «sacristanes», cómo olvidar que los cambiaron por compotas, no debe ser fácil llevar a cuestas la deshonra eterna del mercenario.

Dicen que el gobierno yanqui les prometió concluir lo que comenzaron en bahía de Cochinos. Es muy posible, los que desconocen la historia están condenados a repetirla, porque cualquier aventura de los EE. UU. y sus lacayos terminará de nuevo para ellos en otra costosa derrota.

Republican Stategist Karl Rove: U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders could win the election in 2020.

Republican strategist Karl Rove says Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) could defeat President Trump in 2020.

In an opinion piece in The Wall Street Journal Thursday, Rove cited Sanders's performance at a Monday town hall on Fox News, during which the audience applauded his calls for "Medicare for All."

“When only 37% of Americans in the RealClearPolitics average think the country is going in the right direction while 56.4% think it’s on the wrong track, Mr. Sanders could be perceived as an agent of change,” 

JRG: I agree. Donald Trump could become the worst POTUS ever, Much worse than Herbert Hoover and Richard Nixon combined together.

Why?  Donald Trump is a very NASTY PERSON. Constantly propagating HATE POLICIES.

Seniors: keep tech support strangers out of your computer

Lisa Lake

Consumer Education Specialist, Federal Trade Commission

If you need tech help with your computer, where do you go? Must of us probably  search online. But your online search can lead you straight to scammers who scare you into thinking your computer is in dire need of repair... and then sell you costly security software that you don't need.

That's what happened in the FTC lawsuit against Elite IT Partners, Inc. announced today as part of a online sweep. According to the complaint, Elite bought key words on Google that let them target people searching for how to recover lost passwords. You would fill out and online form and give your contact information  . Then, says the FTC, Elite telemarketers would call and ask online access to your computer -- supposedly to check for problems. Once they were in, the caller would show you fake "evidence" of viruses or other threats that, they said, had to be removed right away.

Then came the sales pitches. Elite allegedly got people -- many of them older adults -- to pay hundreds of dollars, for unnecessary repairs and maintenance programs. If you find yourself in a similar situation, here are some steps you can take:

1. If you're looking for tech support, go to a company you know and trust, or get help from a knowledgeable friend or family member. If you search online for help, search on the company name plus "scam," "review," or "complaint."

2. If you get a phone call you didn't expect from someone who says that there is a problem with your computer, hang up.

3. Never call a number in a pop-up that warns you of computer problems. Real security warnings will never ask you to call a phone number.

4. If you think there is a problem with your computer, update its security software and run a scan.

If you spot a tech support scam, tell the Federal Trade Commission.

"Cuba cuts newspaper size due to paper scarcity as shortages bite."

Since 1 January 1959, the Yankees have tried all kinds of schemes and they all have failed. The batting average of Marco Rubio and Roberto Menendez is 0.

Why does U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders Deserves to Be President of the United States?

Bernie Sanders has what Donald Trump has never had, and never will have:

HONESTY.


Cuba declares it is not afraid of US gangster methods

Havana, Apr 4 (Prensa Latina) General director for the United States of the Cuban Foreign Ministry, Carlos Fernández de Cossío, affirmed the eve the island will not yield to the threats of Washington, which he described as gangster methods.

After the announcement by the State Department of suspending for two weeks the total application of Title III of the Helms-Burton Act, the official warned the US government appeals to extortion.

It does so under the assumption that 'Cuba fears deadlines or ultimatums. It is time to repeal that monster that hurts millions and does not benefit anyone,' he wrote in his Twitter account.

Enacted on 1996, the Helms-Burton codifies the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed on the island almost 60 years ago.

Title III is an expression of the extraterritorial nature of this law, in seeking to discourage foreign investment on the island, with the aim to economically suffocate as a way to achieve regime change.

Because of the rejection it generates, even in countries allied with the United States, and because of the complexity of its application in northern courts, the presidents had suspended it year after year, for six months.

However, Donald Trump, after doing so in 2017 and 2018, decided last January to suspend the total application for only 45 days.

In March, the State Department did the same for 30 days, although allowing some claims, and on Wednesday announced another two weeks' suspension.

Earlier, Cuba's foreign minister, Bruno Rodríguez, had rejected Washington's position.

JRG: Message to Donald Trump, YOU DO NOT RUN CUBA.

A Message from Gail Walker, Executive Director of Pastors for Peace

Dear Friends/Readers of Cuba Journal:

Climate change is upon us, and every passing year it becomes more apparent.

On January 27, a massive tornado slammed into Havana, Cuba, killing 6, and injuring 200 and destroying hundreds of homes and buildings, including a maternity hospital and schools and damaging over 5000 other dwellings. It was the first tornado of such magnitude in 80 years.

Gail was in Havana when the tornado struck.

Gail witnessed the way the Cuban people across the island came together after the storm. She saw how they immediately banded together to help each other. She saw reports of Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel daily visits to those impacted by the tornado helped to restore calm and confidence.

No other organization in the USA has done more to counteract the Yankee imperialists blockade and the embargo against Cuba.

Please send whatever you can afford to help IFCO Pastors for Peace continue their great humanitarian work of helping the Cuban people.

Going Postal

I recently stopped by at my excellent local library and picked up a couple of circulating weekly issues of Linn's Stamp News.

The headline on page one totally shocked me: The Trump Administration is withdrawing the USA from the Universal Postal Union (UPU), a group of 192 nations that regulates postal rates in our planet.

Why? Because Donald Trump has a:

1) Us vs Them Paranoid Mentality. 2) He wants to charge you a lot more for what you pay for mailing a small letter.

I remember very well what I was paying for a first class postage stamp when I arrived in the USA in 1961.

It was four cents for a one ounce letter.

Today we are paying fifty five cents per ounce.

Apparently, Trump has been, behind the scenes, saying that the People's Republic of China benefits by the rates of the UPU.

The article goes on to quote Mike Pompeo in his notification letter to the UPU.

He tells them that the USA is going to a “self-declared rate.” The article does not define that.

To me it means: charge what the traffic will bear, by extending capitalist greed to postage rates.

The effective date is October 17, 2019.

I predict that Trump and his “self-declared” postage rate will mean is that you will have to pay $10.00 per letter, or more. (insurance and 'tracking' will cost you a barrel full of more money.)

The new name of the U.S. Postal Service will be: “MAGA MAIL.”

Rep. Jim McGovern: 'We Should Have Normal Relations With Cuba'

I agree. The Cuba embargo has been a huge failure which has been condemned by 189 civilized countries at the United Nations General Assembly.

Donald Trump continues to pander to the Miami extreme-right-wingers.

Inmigration and Customs Enforcement, (ICE), conducts more than 290 arrests in a raid against a Texas business

April 3, 2019.

USA Federal immigration authorities arrested more than 280 employees of a Texas company in what officials said was the biggest single workplace raid in a decade.

In Germany in the 1930's, it was the Jews. In Trump's USA today, it is the immigrants.

There have been many reports and photos, in the news, of immigrant children being kept in wire cages.

If Trump closed the border with Mexico, the U.S. auto industry would shut down in days

Automotive and parts production would take months to restart. Even a short shutdown could weaken the US economy and push it into recession.

Trump anti-immigrant hatred continues.

Papa Francisco contra las políticas antinmigrantes de Trump

EL QUE LEVANTA UN MURO TERMINA SIENDO SU PRISIONERO

«El que levanta un muro termina prisionero del muro que levantó, y eso, es ley universal», declaró el domingo el líder de la Iglesia católica en una entrevista con la televisión española La Sexta. De este modo, el papa Francisco manifestó su desacuerdo con las políticas antinmigrantes y racistas de Trump, como el posible cierre de la frontera con México para impedir la entrada de los migrantes centroamericanos al suelo estadounidense. El papa no solo se limitó a condenar la valla que pretende instalar Trump, sino todas las barreras que muchos países colocan en sus fronteras y, en concreto, lamentó la actitud de España e Italia ante el tema de la migración.
