    OK, a lot has been going on. I cannot catch up with everything. So here follows a summary of sorts mixed with my conclusions..... FACT 1 April 19 was the nail in the coffin for street protest from chavismo. The opposition drew a GIGANTIC crowd from Eastern Caracas. Basically anyone that could make it did so....Some experts put at 3 million those who set foot on the street if anything to wave a flag as marchers went by. I will settle for two million which is A-W-E-S-O-M-E..... But that is not all, there were huge marches in many places of...

    The tweet from Governor Henrique Capriles, Venezuelan opposition leader, was loud and clear last evening. "Attention our beloved Venezuela. No one surrenders, our duty to defend CRBV (Constitition of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela) against the self-governing madurist! Tomorrow #20A ALL!" Venezuelans are coming back out on the streets today to protest against the Cuban-style Communist rule of President Nicholas Maduro. Article 332 of the constitution gives Venezuelans the right to revolt against tyranny. Peaceful protestors were confronted with government violence yesterday. As thousands converged on the main expressway in Caracas, the regime opened up with tear gas volleys designed...

    So we are in a dictatorship. And this one has made new progress to prove to the world it is so. We had Sunday a totally infamous presentation by the president Nicolas Maduro where live on TV he decided who is guilty of what and how. This based on torture. Yesterday he went further on that path convoking the militia to Caracas to stop the massive opposition protest planned for tomorrow and forcing the army to repeat once again their indefectible oath to the revolution and its heir, the dictator. As a bonus he promised to arm the militia, which...

    “Where are the planes?!” kept crackling over U.S. Navy radios exactly 56 years ago this week. The U.S. Naval armada (22 ships including the Carrier Essex loaded with deadly Skyhawk jets.) was sitting 16 miles off the southern Cuban coast near an inlet known as Bahia de Cochinos (Bay of Pigs). The question — bellowed between blasts from a Soviet artillery and tank barrage landing around him — came from commander, Jose San Roman.“Send planes or we can’t last!” San Roman kept pleading to the very fleet that escorted his men to the beachhead (and sat much closer to them...

    Think Trump would boast about Russias Bolshoi Ballet performing at one of his campaign rallies? Think the mainstream media might trumpet such an event as the Holy Grail, Golden Fleece and Smoking Gun of that ever-elusive Russian collusion with his campaign? Think Comeys FBI might look into it? Especially in view of the following: The Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA) prohibits any foreign national from contributing, donating or spending funds in connection with any federal, state, or local election in the United States, either directly or indirectly.

    “Fidel Castro is one hell of a guy! You people would like him! Most people in Cuba like him.” (Ted Turner to a capacity crowd at Harvard Law School during a speech in 1997.)Within weeks, CNN was granted its coveted Havana Bureau, the first-ever granted by Castro to a foreign network. Bureau chief Lucia Newman (now with Al Jazeera) assured viewers, “CNN will be given total freedom to do what we want and to work without censorship.” Hard-hitting stories immediately followed. The Media Research Center reported how soon after Castro’s bestowment of a coveted Cuban “news” (i.e. propaganda) bureau, CNN...

    Last summer the first U.S. commercial flights to Cuba in more than half a century took off to jubilant fanfare - and landed to cheers and water cannon salutes. U.S. airlines were giddy about resuming commercial flights to the communist island. Maybe too giddy. On Monday, the Fort Lauderdale-based Silver Airways said it will drop its 22 weekly flights to Cuba next month. Frontier Airlines said it will cease its Miami-to-Havana service in June. Both companies cited weak demand and excess capacity.

    Cuban President Raul Castro harshly criticized U.S. President Donald Trump's immigration, trade and other policies on Sunday as Trump reviews a fragile detente with Communist-run Cuba begun by his predecessor Barack Obama. In his first critical remarks directed at Trump since he took office, Castro termed his trade policies "egotistical" and his plan to build a wall along the Mexican border "irrational." Castro's speech to a summit of leftist leaders in Venezuela was broadcast by state-run television on Sunday evening.

    President Barack Obamas concessions to Cuba opened the way for U.S. airlines to do business with the communist dictatorship. After announcing frequent flights to the island over a year ago, however, many major airlines have found the demand they expected from U.S. tourists simply is not there.

    The White House is finishing an executive order that would instruct the Pentagon to send Islamic State detainees to Guantanamo Bay. The Obama administration notably refused to send ISIS fighters captured in the fight to the detention facility, but for President Donald Trump, its imperative to take high-level radical Islamic terrorists out of the fight, The New York Times reports. For some, the order could function as a de facto tripwire because it could allow federal judges to rule on whether the war against ISIS is actually legal, since Congress has declined to offer any explicit authorization. Instead, the Obama...

    Irwin Corey, the comic maestro who endeared himself to generations of audiences as the Worlds Foremost Authority, whose nonsensical monologues aped blowhard pundits, pompous academics and other know-it-alls, died Feb. 6 at his home in Manhattan. He was 102. His son, painter, songwriter, singer and comedian Richard Corey, quipped that his father died peacefully, at home, surrounded by his son. Under the moniker Professor Corey, the self-described rebel comedian spent eight decades perfecting a mock-intellectual routine laced with malapropisms and non sequiturs.

    The President of the United States announced that refugees fleeing persecution by a totalitarian regime would be deported. It did not matter that they had risked their lives to come here. They would be sent back. No leftist lawyers crammed airports. No protesters chanted at terminals. No celebrities offered sanctimonious lectures about who we are. No one dared to call the lying thug behind it un-American. Because his last name was Obama and the refugees were Cubans fleeing socialism. Their arrival irritated the leftists gleefully going on tours of Havana while worrying that capitalism would ruin all the poverty, misery...

    As the radical left organizes obstructions of airport terminals to protest President Donald Trumps executive order enacting new security measures for travelers visiting from turbulent countries, few appear equally outraged that his predecessor, Barack Obama, issued a similar directive specifically targeting Cubans. During his last week in office, President Obama repealed a long-standing executive order known as Wet Foot/Dry Foot, which allowed all Cubans legally touching U.S. soil to stay here illegally. The objective of the executive order was to give sanctuary to Cubans risking their lives on makeshift vessels trying to sail to the United States and escape the...

    Remember earlier this month when Lily Tomlin compared America to Nazi Germany, Senator Chuck Schumer cried, and mobs chanted No hate, no fear/Everyone is welcome here at airports because the president blocked Cuban refugees from entering the country?No, you dont recall that happening? Well, me neither.The federal governments crackdown on immigrants, at least ones from a single country, certainly happened. But the protests didnt. That fact that President Obama rather than President Trump issued the order surely muted the response. So, too, in a no-enemies-to-the-left manner, did the fact that the order helped a Communist prison-state tighten its grip on...

    The Department of Defense announced Thursday that four more prisoners held at the military detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba are being transferred out, leaving the prisons population at 41 as President Obama leaves office. One inmate is being transferred to Saudi Arabia, while the other three are going to the United Arab Emirates, CNN reported. This is likely to be Obamas last transfer of inmates from Guantanamo before President-elect Donald Trump is sworn into office at noon on Friday. Trump has pledged to keep the military prison open and load it up with some bad dudes. When Obama entered...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz introduced a bill on Tuesday that would declassify information about the terrorist activities of detainees at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba who have been released or transferred since Election Day. The move came after a report that the Obama administration recently struck a deal with Oman to transfer 10 detainees from Gitmo. The move brings the total number of detainees down to less than 50. Cruz and other Republicans have been heavily critical of Obamas transfers and of his promise to close the facility before leaving office. Republicans point to a statistic that 30 percent...
