He should have never apologized to the Miami Fascists for the famous and eternal words of Ernesto 'Che' Guevara: "Hasta La Victoria, Siempre."

Without the help of Che at the Battle of Santa Clara in December 1958, the Cuban Revolution would have taken a little longer.

Che was very successful and Cuba became free on January 1, 1959, after Batista fled to the Dominican Republic..

Thank You, Che.

The dishonest acts under the Nazi administration of Donald Trump keep on growing every day.

Democracy no longer exists in the USA.

Gerrymandering is not a very honest practice. It is a political scam.

27 July, 2019.

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled against the challengers opposed to partisan gerrymandering, the practice in which the party that controls the state legislature draws voting maps to help elect its candidates.

The vote in two cases was 5 to 4, with the court’s more conservative members in the majority. The court appeared to close the door on such claims.

Is the USA a country of dishonest gimmicks?

Imagining A Dismal Future, 'Years And Years' Says Plenty About The Present

24 June 2019.

Things are looking bright for pessimists these days — the world has caught up with their sense of gloom. Well over half of those living in the developed world think their countries are heading in the wrong direction, away from the prosperity and stability that people over age 40 once took for granted. Be it climate change, financial collapse, terrorism, political gridlock or the ceaseless psychic tasering of social media, ordinary people often feel caught in a reality that's spinning out of control.

Lyndon Johnson used the "Gulf of Tonkin Resolution" to start U.S. involvement in Vietnam. Trump is now trying to start a war against Iran.

Are Oman Tanker Attacks Another Gulf of Tonkin?

June 14, 2019.

There has been considerable cynicism worldwide about American claims that the attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman on Thursday were conducted by Iran.

Iran has denied the accusation, and on Twitter, the term “Gulf of Tonkin” trended alongside the “Gulf of Oman.”

That historical reference is telling. It was in citing the “Gulf of Tonkin incident” — the North Vietnamese were accused of attacking American destroyers in that gulf in 1964 — that President Lyndon B. Johnson persuaded the Congress to authorize greater American military involvement in Vietnam. Historians have concluded that the attack never happened and Johnson’s ploy is now seen as the quintessential false flag operation.

Elizabeth Warren gains momentum in the 2020 race plan by plan

At a televised town hall in Indiana this week, Warren listened intently as a woman who voted for Trump in 2016 described her disillusionment – not only with a president who failed to bring back manufacturing jobs as he said he promised but with an entire political system stymied by dysfunction.

No doubt about it: Donald Trump is the nastiest president the USA has EVER had.

His constant whining never ends. He wants everyone to CONSTANTLY kiss his ass.

As far as I am concerned, he can go to f*cking hell.

La CTC y los sindicatos declaran su disposición a continuar representando a los trabajadores por cuenta propia y defender sus derechos, al igual que los de todos los trabajadores, y renueva su condena a la creciente hostilidad de Estados Unidos, que en su obsesivo afán de rendir a la Patria de Martí ha puesto en vigor en todas sus partes el engendro legislativo de la Helms-Burton.

Let’s not leave the Soviet Union out of our D-Day history

June 6, 2019 10:06 AM CDT  BY JOHN WOJCIK


On the 75th Anniversary of D-Day today, there are ceremonies honoring the American heroes who landed on the beaches of Normandy and defeated the Nazis. This is as it should be. What is not right, however, is that rarely are we honoring in our ceremonies the Soviet heroes who bore the brunt of the battles to defeat fascism in World War II.

No al Bloqueo Contra Cuba. Donald Trump is a Nasty Old Man. GET LOST Scum Bag!

7 Junio, 2019

El senador demócrata por Vermont, Patrick Leahy, anunció que presentará ante el congreso estadounidense un proyecto de Ley de Libertad para viajar a Cuba, y calificó las nuevas medidas de «tontas», «vergonzosas» e «hipócritas», pues Washington tiene marcadas diferencias con otros países y no les prohíbe a los estadounidenses visitarlos.

Declaración del Gobierno Revolucionario de la República de Cuba

Cuba no se amedrenta ante medidas de reforzamiento del bloqueo de los Yankees.


JRG: Cuba no se vende por doce doblones the oro. Para los Yankees $$$$$ es todo.


El Gobierno Revolucionario de la República de Cuba repudia en los términos más enérgicos las medidas anunciadas por el Gobierno de Estados Unidos el 4 de junio de 2019, con las que refuerza el bloqueo económico impuesto a Cuba por más de 60 años, a un costo para la economía cubana que en 2018 superaba los 134 000 millones de dólares a precios corrientes y la cifra de 933 000 millones de dólares, tomando en cuenta la depreciación del dólar frente al valor del oro en el mercado internacional.

Según se ha podido conocer, esta nueva escalada, con efecto a partir del 5 de junio, refuerza aún más las duras restricciones que ya sufren los ciudadanos estadounidenses para viajar a Cuba, agrega prohibiciones absolutas para embarcaciones de todo tipo procedentes de Estados Unidos y prohíbe de inmediato que buques cruceros visiten nuestro país.

La pretensión continúa siendo arrancarle concesiones políticas a la nación cubana, mediante la asfixia de la economía y el daño al nivel de la población. En este caso particular, las medidas buscan también impedir que el pueblo de Estados Unidos conozca la realidad cubana y derrote así el efecto de la propaganda calumniosa que a diario se fabrica contra nuestro país.

Son acciones que desprecian la opinión mayoritaria de los estadounidenses, cuyo interés por conocer Cuba y ejercer su derecho a viajar se demostróen los 650 000 que nos visitaron en 2018, junto a medio millón de cubanos residentes en Estados Unidos.

El pasado 17 de abril, el asesor de Seguridad Nacional John Bolton, en ocasión de un show anticubano que contó con la presencia de mercenarios derrotados en Playa Girón y familiares de los esbirros de la tiranía de Fulgencio Batista,había advertido que su Gobierno restringiría los viajes no familiares a Cuba.Se conoce que este individuoha logrado adueñarse de la política exterior de Estados Unidos hacia el hemisferio occidental, lo que constituye la principal amenaza a la paz y la estabilidad de toda la región.  

Estados Unidos promueve sin recato la Doctrina Monroe, con la que pretende negar la igualdad soberana y el derecho a la libre determinación de todas y cada una de las naciones del hemisferio.

Las recientes arremetidas contra Cuba se argumentan con nuevos pretextos. El más notorio entre ellos es la calumniosa acusación de que Cuba interviene militarmente en Venezuela, mentira que ha sido rechazada pública y sostenidamente por el Gobierno cubano.

Llegan al extremo inescrupuloso de proponer a Cubaque traicione sus convicciones y los principios que han acompañado a la política exterior de la Revolución Cubana, a cambio de promesas de negociación o alivio de las medidas draconianas y criminales que componen el bloqueo económico. 

La solidaridad de Cuba con el Presidente Constitucional Nicolás Maduro Moros, la Revolución bolivariana y chavista y la unión cívico-militar de su pueblo, no es negociable. Los más de 20 000 colaboradores cubanos que de manera voluntaria y abnegada prestan servicios sociales en ese país, la mayor parte de ellos en el sector de la salud, seguirán allí mientras los acoja el pueblo venezolano, cooperando con esa nación hermana. 

Para los cubanos, la traición no es una opción. No somos ingenuos, son ya 150 años de ardua lucha por nuestra independencia, teniendo que enfrentar desde el primer día las ambiciones hegemónicas del imperialismo norteamericano.

Cuba no se dejará amedrentar, ni distraer de las tareas esenciales y urgentes del desarrollo de nuestra economía y la construccióndel socialismo. Estrechamente unidos, seremos capaces de enfrentar las adversidades más desafiantes. No podrán asfixiarnos, ni podrán detenernos.

People's Republic of China issues Travel Advisory to the USA

Top Polling Democratic POTUS candidates.

June 6, 2019

The 13 candidates who can book their tickets to Miami include the race’s top figures. Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Beto O’Rourke, Cory Booker, Amy Klobuchar and Julian Castro.

They are the top-polling candidates. Following a random drawing, they will be split across the two nights, with five on one night and four on the other.

My top preference for a winning ticket: Bernie and Elizabeth.

We have to get rid of the Nasty Nazi currently in the White House. The rest, appoint them Secretaries of Nothingness.

A Yankee Capitalist cares only about one thing: $$$$$


Within three years the Internet will totally collapse. Why?

With every passing day, the browsers and the so-called 'news media' carry more and more junk commercial advertising.

The same thing that happened to American TV will happen to the Internet.

TOO MUCH JUNK SHIT IS BEING LOADED INTO THE BROWSERS.

I hardly watch American TV anymore. I do not want to see or listen to junk commercial adverting every six seconds.
