    “Cuba is hopeful U.S. President Joe Biden will swiftly reverse his predecessor’s hard-line approach toward the Communist-run island and resume the policy of detente begun by the Obama administration, a top official in Havana told Reuters. Carlos Fernandez de Cossio, Cuba’s top diplomat in charge of relations with the United States, said Biden’s pledges suggested he wanted to restart where he and Obama left off.” (Reuters 1/21.)We bet! Who can blame the terror-sponsoring Cubans for salivating at the looming diplomatic windfall!The proverbial Martian visiting earth would instantly see that in any diplomatic poker-playing between the U.S. and Cuba, we held...

    ccupied with shoring up the United States’ battered international image…But he’s spending his final days in office throwing diplomatic banana peels in the path of his successors by formally, but oh so very spuriously, designating foreign actors he doesn’t like as terrorists. The more obviously outrageous of Pompeo’s moves is that against Cuba,” noted NBC News on Jan. 13. “Secretary of State Pompeo Leaves No Bridges Unburned—Returning Cuba to the state-sponsor-of-terrorism list does nothing except complicate Mr. Biden’s intention to return to the search for better relations initiated by President Barack Obama and throw a sop to Trump-backing Cuban exiles...

    US Bishops Disagree with Designation of Cuba as Terrorism SponsorIn announcing the designation of Cuba Jan. 11, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said it has provided “support for acts of international terrorism in granting safe harbor to terrorists.”WASHINGTON — The US bishops’ chair for international justice and peace has expressed his disagreement with the State Department’s return of Cuba to a list of state sponsors of terrorism.The decision was based in part on Cuba’s provision of haven to Colombian rebel leaders and fugitives from US justice, as well as Cuba’s support of Nicolas Maduro, the disputed president of...

    The Trump administration plans to return Cuba to the U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism, a person familiar with the matter said on Monday, a move that could complicate any efforts by the incoming Biden administration to revive Obama-era detente with Havana. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who could announce Cuba's designation as soon as Monday with just nine days left in office for President Donald Trump, is expected to tie the decision to Cuba's long-time harboring of U.S. fugitives as well as Colombian rebel leaders, the source said.

    The Trump administration will place Cuba back on the list of state sponsors of terrorism on Monday, according to two senior State Department officials, reversing an Obama-era decision and making it harder for President-elect Joe Biden to quickly revive diplomatic ties with Havana.Secretary of State Michael Pompeo is expected to indicate he’s designating Cuba because the country continues to harbor American fugitives including Joanne Chesimard, convicted of killing a New Jersey state trooper in 1973, and refuses a Colombian extradition request for National Liberation Army members linked to a 2019 bombing that killed 22.Cuba joins only Syria, Iran and North...

    January 7, 1959, marks a milestone in U.S. diplomatic history. Never before had the U.S. State Department extended diplomatic recognition (i.e. benediction) to a Latin American government as quickly as they bestowed this benediction on KGB satraps Fidel Castro and Che Guevara’s that day. At the time, Castro himself had yet to even enter Havana. Nothing so frantically fast had been bestowed upon “U.S.-backed” Fulgencio Batista (obligatory prefix, used in every MSM and “scholarly” mention of him) seven years earlier. “U.S.-backed” Batista had in fact been punished by a U.S. arms embargo and heavy diplomatic pressure to resign for a...

Offshore engineer Paulina Zelitsky and her husband, Paul Weinzweig and her son Ernesto Tapanes used sophisticated sonar and video videotape devices to find “some kind of megaliths you ‘d find on Stonehenge or Easter Island,” Weinzweig said in an interview.

    “In what is becoming all too common for Congress, the COVID-19 relief bill was dumped on the President’s desk filled with pork spending and pet projects, which significantly reduced the meaningful support that struggling Americans deserve. It is clear President Trump recognized the immense flaws of the bill but was backed into a corner due to Congress running out the clock and sending him an all-or-nothing proposal.” (Texas Speaker of the House Dennis Bonnen, R-Angleton, Dec. 28.)“The bill they are now planning to send back to my desk is much different than anticipated. It really is a disgrace… it has...

    President-elect Joe Biden has made clear in his staffing plans and public remarks that he intends to return America to many of the foreign policy positions championed by his former boss, President Barack Obama. While American mainstream media has largely cheered this – and glowered at President Donald Trump for defending his achievements by making regression more difficult under Biden – many of America’s allies, and some of its foes, around the world are making moves suggesting they expect a full return to the state of global affairs in 2016. The Obama administration’s foreign policy was defined by the tension...

    <p>A government television broadcast in Cuba this week urged citizens to eat guinea pig and other rodents, suggesting rodent meat is more nutritious and “sustainable” than pork or beef, Cuban outlets reported on Wednesday.</p><p>The Communist Party has presided over major food shortages in Cuba for decades, beginning almost immediately following the Cuban Revolution in 1959. In recent years, the Castro regime has blamed President Donald Trump for extensive food shortages and failed distribution of government-mandated rations. While the Trump administration has imposed significant sanctions on the regime in response to the increased frequency of human rights violations against pro-democracy dissidents in the Obama era, these sanctions have targeted elite individuals and military-linked corporations, not sources of food for the general population.</p>

    “‘Dr. Jill Biden’ sounds and feels fraudulent, not to say a touch comic. Your degree is, I believe, an Ed.D., a doctor of education, earned at the University of Delaware through a dissertation with the unpromising title ‘Student Retention at the Community College Level: Meeting Students’ Needs.’ A wise man once said that no one should call himself “Dr.” unless he has delivered a child. Think about it, Dr. Jill, and forthwith drop the doc.” (Wall Street Journal, Dec. 11, 2020.)Alas, no such “feelings of fraudulence” pricked at the conscience of the regime whose lifetime craving was the destruction of...

    “Sidelined NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is getting his own ice cream flavor courtesy of Ben & Jerry's," wrote CNN this week. "The company said it created the flavor to celebrate 'Kaepernick's courageous work to confront systemic oppression and to stop police violence against Black and Brown people.'" In 2016, Kaepernick's claim to fame was when he said, "I’m going to continue to stand with the people that are being oppressed. There is police brutality. People of color have been targeted by police…There’s people being murdered unjustly and not being held accountable.” While proclaiming the sentiments above, which earned him Ben...

    By the time you read this, Sidney Powell may have released her Kraken on America in the form of a filing about election events in Georgia. Until then, though, there is a healthy debate about whether Powell can make the case that Dominion and Smartmatic, both of which played a role in the disputed states, have Venezuela ties that prove their connection to American fraud. Roger L. Simon has entered the fray, detailing what two informants told him as background about these two companies and their ties to Venezuela.Writing at the Epoch Times, Simon, who tackles facts like a rigorous...

    A mob of communists attacked peaceful supporters of the San Isidro Movement, a pro-democracy artist collective, who gathered in Havana’s Central Park on Sunday to back 15 activists on hunger strike in protest of the arrest of rapper Denis Solís. The mob chanted “the park is Fidel’s” and physically intimidated the crowd for some time before Cuban state security appeared and arrested at least 18 activists and reporters. The 15 hunger strikers did not attend as the building in which they are staying is reportedly now surrounded by Cuban police, preventing anyone from entering or exiting. One of those now...

    Until now, the United States certainly has had a concern over Iranian penetration in South America, and not just in Venezuela. One reason why Donald Trump adopted the “maximum pressure” campaign against Iran was to curtail its global ambitions against the West, especially in energy-rich areas. Most of the attention from the media fell on the immediate region around Iran, such as the “land bridge” strategy through Syria to the Mediterranean and the encirclement strategy against the Saudis with Hezbollah and the Houthis.However, Iran has long tried a similar diplomatic/economic/political encirclement strategy against the US in South America. They conducted...
