The BREXIT 'leave' vote is just another manifestation of the growing dissatisfaction of the people with the governing elites.

Bernie Sanders tells you the TRUTH the way it really is

  1. “The corporate media is incapable of covering a national campaign in a serous way.”
  2. “The Clinton's play very dirty.”
  3. “Hillary's attacks on him have been outrageous, courtesy of her Super PAC helmed by the scum of the earth."
  4. “Jewess Princess [JG: my choice of word] Debbie Wasserman Schultz has stacked the deck against him.”.
  5. "In every state we have participated we have taken on the Democratic establishment."
Source: Time Magazine, June 6, 2016, Page 32.

My message to Bernie Sanders: why continue wasting your time participating in the 100% corrupt capitalist Democratic Party?

BTW, Bernie, even if you get down on your knees and ask me, I WILL NOT VOTE for Hillary on November 8.

Bernie Sanders: Democrats Need to Wake Up

By Bernie Sanders, June 28, 2016

Surprise, surprise. Workers in Britain, many of whom have seen a decline in their standard of living while the very rich in their country have become much richer, have turned their backs on the European Union and a globalized economy that is failing them and their children.

And it’s not just the British who are suffering. That increasingly globalized economy, established and maintained by the world’s economic elite, is failing people everywhere. Incredibly,the wealthiest 62 people on this planet own as much wealth as the bottom half of the world’s population — around 3.6 billion people. The top 1 percent now owns more wealth than the whole of the bottom 99 percent. The very, very rich enjoy unimaginable luxury while billions of people endure abject poverty, unemployment, and inadequate health care, education, housing and drinking water.

Could this rejection of the current form of the global economy happen in the United States? You bet it could.

During my campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination, I’ve visited 46 states. What I saw and heard on too many occasions were painful realities that the political and media establishment fail even to recognize.

In the last 15 years, nearly 60,000 factories in this country have closed, and more than 4.8 million well-paid manufacturing jobs have disappeared. Much of this is related to disastrous trade agreements that encourage corporations to move to low-wage countries.

Despite major increases in productivity, the the median male worker in America today is making $726 dollars less than he did in 1973, while the median female worker is making $1,154 less than she did in 2007, after adjusting for inflation.

Nearly 47 million Americans live in poverty. An estimated 28 million have no health insurance, while many others are underinsured. Millions of people are struggling with outrageous levels of student debt. For perhaps the first time in modern history, our younger generation will probably have a lower standard of living than their parents. Frighteningly, millions of poorly educated Americans will have a shorter life span than the previous generation as they succumb to despair, drugs and alcohol.

Meanwhile, in our country the top one-tenth of 1 percent now owns almost as much wealth as the bottom 90 percent. Fifty-eight percent of all new income is going to the top 1 percent. Wall Street and billionaires, through their "super PACs,“ are able to buy elections.

On my campaign, I’ve talked to workers unable to make it on $8 or $9 an hour; retirees struggling to purchase the medicine they need on $9,000 a year of Social Security; young people unable to afford college. I also visited the American citizens of Puerto Rico, where some 58 percent of the children live in poverty and only a little more than 40 percent of the adult population has a job or is seeking one.

Let’s be clear. The global economy is not working for the majority of people in our country and the world. This is an economic model developed by the economic elite to benefit the economic elite. We need real change.

But we do not need change based on the demagogy, bigotry and anti-immigrant sentiment that punctuated so much of the Leave campaign’s rhetoric — and is central to Donald J. Trump’s message.

We need a president who will vigorously support international cooperation that brings the people of the world closer together, reduces hypernationalism and decreases the possibility of war. We also need a president who respects the democratic rights of the people, and who will fight for an economy that protects the interests of working people, not just Wall Street, the drug companies and other powerful special interests.

We need to fundamentally reject our “free trade” policies and move to fair trade. Americans should not have to compete against workers in low-wage counties who earn pennies an hour. We must defeat the Trans-Pacific Partnership. We must help poor countries develop sustainable economic models.
We need to end the international scandal in which large corporations and the wealthy avoid paying trillions of dollars in taxes to their national governments.

We need to create tens of millions of jobs worldwide by combating global climate change and by transforming the world’s energy system away from fossil fuels.

We need international efforts to cut military spending around the globe and address the causes of war: poverty, hatred, hopelessness and ignorance.

The notion that Donald Trump could benefit from the same forces that gave the Leave proponents a majority in Britain should sound an alarm for the Democratic Party in the United States. Millions of American voters, like the Leave supporters, are understandably angry and frustrated by the economic forces that are destroying the middle class.

In this pivotal moment, the Democratic Party and a new Democratic president need to make clear that we stand with those who are struggling and who have been left behind. We must create national and global economies that work for all, and not a handful of billionaires.

Bernie Sanders, a senator from Vermont, is a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination.

The big loser was Prime Minister David Cameron and his governing Conservative Party. At least he has honor; he resigned immediately.

Jeremy Corbyn of the British Labor Party was another big loser. His party's Members of Parliament have issued a 'no confidence' vote for him. He should resign too.

The big winner was Nigel Farage of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP). He was totally in tune with what the people of Britain wanted: OUT OF THE EUROPEAN UNION.

Spain: Political Fragmentation: PP (137), PSOE (85), Podemos (71), Ciudadanos (32)

The problem is that you have to have at least 176 votes in the House of Deputies to form a working national government. It is formally called the Investiture of the New Prime Minister.

For six months from the election date of 20 December 2015, to the second election of 26 June 2016, these four parties COULD NOT AGREE ON ANYTHING.

The first party is right-wing, the next two parties are leftist and the third party is centrist.

The Kingdom of Spain is UNGOVERNABLE! That is the same thing that happened before the start of the Spanish Civil War of 1936. The Franco dictatorship followed.

It will be very interesting to see what happens over the next few months.

OK. Can they agree on this?

For the next six months we will throw rotten eggs and tomatoes toward each other and then we will call a third election, if we can not agree on who has the most stains on their clothes.

The group that has the most stains on their clothes will be the NEW GOVERNMENT.

Keep your fingers crossed.

Another solution: The last three parties form the new government (188 votes) and take the members of the first party (the loser) to a whore-house dinner with "the girls."

El PSOE no apoyará ni se abstendrá ante la investidura de Mariano Rajoy

http://politica.elpais.com/politica/2016/06/27/actualidad/1467015115_847031.html

Excerpt:

El líder del PSOE, Pedro Sánchez, ha transmitido a su Ejecutiva su intención de no apoyar a Rajoy para que este siga en La Moncloa. Al igual que ocurrió tras el 20-D, los socialistas consideran que ahora es al PP a quien le toca intentar la formación de Gobierno. así lo ha recalcado Hernando: “A partir de este momento, es a Rajoy a quien corresponde la iniciativa. Tiene que despejar hipótesis, como si se va a presentar a la investidura. Tiene que decir con quien va a hablar y de qué va a hacerlo. Y entre sus afines ideológicos no está el PSOE”.

JG: This is much better! One man's opinion, mine. I am not affiliated with PP, PSOE or Unidos Podemos, but my sympathies are with the last group.

American Airlines offers discounted inaugural fares to Cuba

BY MIMI WHITEFIELD - Miami Herald

American Airlines is now taking reservations and selling regularly scheduled flights between Miami International Airport and five Cuban cities to start in September for less than $300 round-trip, including taxes.

But the cheaper rates come with caveats, including final approval from the Cuban government for American’s new commercial flights to the island.

If all goes as planned, regularly scheduled flights to Cienfuegos and Holguín will take off from MIA on Sept. 7.

JG: This is not very good.

My family is in Havana and not in Cienfuegos and Holguín.

It looks to me that this is just another excuse to charge you $600 to fly to Cuba. Very convenient for the capitalist marketers, not very good for my pocket.

In Spain, the anti-Podemos fanaticism of Prime Minster 'in-functions' Mariano Rajoy continues unabated

Photo: BBC/Getty Images

It is true that the right wing Partido Popular in Spain, won yesterday's elections.

But PP did not win the absolute 176 seats in the House of Deputies that were needed to form a new government. He only won 137.

But Mariano Rajoy does not want to accept the reality that Unidos Podemos is the third largest political force in Spain.

Compare the two elections in Spain.
Link: http://www.abc.es/elecciones/elecciones-generales/resultados/

26 June 2016

Partido Popular - (Right of Center) - 137 seats. An increase of  14 seats.
Partido Socialista Oberero de España - (Left of Center) - 85 seats. A loss of 5 seats.
Unidos Podemos - (Left of Center) - 71 seats, an increase of 2 seats.
Ciudadanos - (Center-Right) - 32 seats, a loss of 8 seats.

The PSOE would be entering into a pact with the devil if it accepts to participate in a government headed by Mariano Rajoy. The Socialists would be betraying the true interests of the Spanish working class.

The only progressive party that won seats is Unidos Podemos. PP is a right wing party that does the bidding for big $$$$$ interests.

Almost 30% of the votes counted:

The right-wingers of Partido Popular are in first place, but it is very doubtful that they will be able to obtain the 176 seats that are needed for an absolute legislative majority in the House of Deputies.

Only an alliance between Unidos Podemos and the PSOE will save Spain from a third possible election. Like in the United States, with the Democratic Party, PSOE has been a huge disappointment in Spain, and they have fallen to a very week third place.

This financial crisis is proudly brought to you by ........

Notice that these financial crisis, such as the Brexit, always start in hyper-capitalist countries. Socialist and communist countries rarely have such economic cataclysms, because they do not have political and economic systems that encourage screwing and exploiting the people. On the contrary, they seek to help all the citizens of their country.

In 1789, when the French Revolution took place, and the the heads of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette were placed under the guillotine, the ruling elites of the world took notice. It would be a very long time, until 1917, that monarchical heads would not roll again, until the Bolshevik Revolution in Czarist Russia.

What the world needs today are a few more Robespierre's and Lenin's.

You could probably also say that what the British did today is the XXIst Century version of the guillotine. APPLAUSE!

The British have voted to leave the European Union. Possible Black Friday in the USA stock market after the opening bell at 9:30 a.m. Dow futures drop 500 points.

Hey buddy! Wanna buy a cheap and beutiful gun to go along with your NRA membership card?

The United States of America must certainly be one of the biggest laughingstocks in the whole planet today.

Every few days, we wake up to yet another senseless gun massacre in the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave.

What a huge joke! There are millions of suckers who believe that crap.

The only thing that American capitalists care about is making huge sums of money. Never ending greed motivates their daily lives.

They have been totally brainwashed into believing that they have a constitutional right to buy a gun.

Read the second amendment very slowly. The central theme is a 'well regulated militia' and not the "rights" of mentally deficient people.

Today, we live in a very insecure world. Criminals who peddle drugs and prey on our children and who wear clergy robes are just two examples.

Guns are just one of the things that capitalists peddle, along with crack and heroin. Simply do anything that puts money in your pockets.

Morality and ethics?

What is that to a capitalist? They don't have any.

Update on the sit-in at the U.S. House of Representatives floor

June 23,2016

Washington (CNN)House Republicans sought to end an extraordinary day of drama and a 16-hour sit-in by Democrats in the early hours of Thursday morning by adjourning for a recess that will last through July 5.

The move is an effort to shut down a protest that began Wednesday morning when Democrats took over the House floor and tried to force votes on gun control. Shortly after 7:00 a.m., about 20 Democrats remained on the House floor, including House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi, and they were determined to continue.

Poco después de que el órgano creado en 1961 por la Asamblea General adoptara una nueva resolución sobre el caso boricua, el representante cubano en el foro, Humberto Rivero, advirtió que se agravan los problemas económicos y sociales de Puerto Rico, nación caribeña sometida a 118 años de dominio estadounidense.
La pobreza, el desempleo y la insolvencia del gobierno local crecen cada día, mientras una recesión paralizante del desarrollo económico y una deuda pública impagable, superior a los 70 000 millones de dólares, llevan al país a una crisis sin precedentes y a devastadoras consecuencias para la población, dijo el embajador.  (Granma)

Out of Left Field: Trumbo Gets Oscar Nomination for Sympathetic Treatment of Communist

By Roger Harris, Counterpunch, January 15, 2016

Trumbo, a Hollywood movie with big name actors and cutting edge production values, portrays communists and by extension their principles in a sympathetic light. And now Bryan Cranston, playing the blacklisted Trumbo, got nominated for the best actor Oscar at the January 14th Academy Award announcements.

Democrats come off in the movie as cowards and quislings, while Republicans are mean-spirited corrupt bullies. Besides being somewhat historically accurate, Trumbo is a thoroughly engrossing entertainment experience with drama, intelligent dialogue, and flashes of humor. All that and without gratuitous sex and violence.

Six U.S. airlines approved for flights to Cuba

Six airlines won permission Friday to resume scheduled commercial air service from the U.S. to Cuba.

The airlines — American, Frontier, JetBlue, Silver Airways, Southwest and Sun Country — were approved by the Department of Transportation for a total of 155 round-trip flights per week. They’ll fly from five U.S. cities to nine cities in Cuba other than Havana.

Tampa was not approved for flights to Cuba.


The routes include service from Miami, Chicago, Philadelphia, Minneapolis and Fort Lauderdale. The Cuban destinations are Camaguey, Cayo Coco, Cayo Largo, Cienfuegos, Holguin, Manzanillo, Matanzas, Santa Clara and Santiago de Cuba.

Source: Assoicated Press

JG: The fact that Cuban airlines cannot fly to the USA due to the continuation of the United Nations condemned blockade/embargo against the Caribbean island means that Cuba will continue to be FUCKED by USA capitalists.

I have had experience with only one of them, Jet Blue, and I found their services to be sub-standard. I will not use them if I decide to visit Cuba.

Has anyone ever heard of Silver Airways and Sun Country? I wonder if they are cronies of Barack Obama.


Despite the denials coming from the Cuban government, the island appears to have joined the SELL, SELL, SELL mentality of capitalist societies.

Is Cuba traveling in a “bad” road?

Why can't these people do their job successfully?

Cuba Journal responds to myopic Florida U.S. Senator Bill Nelson

Two or three weeks ago I wrote to Florida U.S. Senator Bill Nelson to express my opposition to the Democratic Party in regards to the Cuba/blockade embargo. 

On Saturday I received his response. Basically, he said that he was in favor continuing the Cuba blockade/embargo.

I responded with a 35 cent postcard, because he is not worth the 49 cent postage of a response letter.

I said the following:

"Sir: Saying that you favor the continuation of the Cuba embargo means that you favor MYOPIC policies that have been condemned by 193 countries at the United Nations."

"Continue burying your head in the sand."

JG: I have never voted for Nelson. I will continue doing that. I hope that the readers of this blog do the same thing if he runs for re-election.

What Bernie Sanders should say

Jorge Gonzalez ‏@BeaverforBernie 2 minutes ago #Bernie should say: "Today, I am abandoning the #DemocraticParty, they are way too corrupt for a Socialist. Write-in my name on Nov. 8."

The two SHITIEST presidential candidates from the two major capitalist parties in the last 50 years

A choice between Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton is no choice at all.

Of course, you can waste your vote on one of the candidates of the minor alternative political parties.

When was the last time one of these was elected? NEVER! The ruling elites prevent them from participating in the few presidential candidates debates. You are a fool if you believe that the USA is a democracy.

I am staying home on November 8th. It is a waste of my time.

Here is another piece of news that may thrill you:

Google developing kill switch for 

Artificial Intelligence


Google wants only dumb and retards using their software. That way it is easier to scam and exploit you. 






Tuesday, June 07, 2016

How U.S. Senator Sanders could have been so naive in believing that a 100% capitalist party was going to nominate a Socialist?

Your con game has been called. The capitalists have humiliated another decent and honest man.

All done by a super crook called Hillary 'La Tortillera' Clinton.

Thousands of Americans will  stay home in November. Racist Trump will win the White House by default.

End of the capitalist farce that the two capitalist parties call a Presidential Election.

I will never ever vote again. It is a little game for the fools who have no intelligence.They are legion in the USA.

The only thing that the capitalists and the Jews of the USA care about is amassing large fortunes at the expense of the working class.

But one day the USA will be TOTALLY DESTROYED.

The Sacramento Bee gives five very good reasons why Trump will defeat Hillary in November.

Full disclosure: I dislike both Trump and Hillary INTENSELY. I will not vote for either one in November.

The first is a Nazi racist and the second is (in Cuban slang) an unadulterated TORTILLERA, a very low-class lesbian. I can understand why Bill Clinton had to urgently go and get a blow job from Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office.

But, back to the Sacramento Bee article.

1) Trump's rhetoric resonates, (Even as it appalls)
2) Most Republicans are falling in line.
3) Gotcha journalism doesn't faze Trump.
4) Hillary follows his lead - badly.
5) Trump will crush Hillary in the debates.

My own #6:

There is a tremendous amount of hate and angry people in the USA today, like in the Germany of the 1930's. The krauts got Hitler and we get Trump. History will repeat itself.

Why is this happening? Because capitalist millionaires and billionaires have been fucking the American people since Reagan was installed in the White House, and the Yankees don't have the guts or the necessary intelligence needed to start assassinating the capitalist SCUM.

JG: What the New York Times does not tell its readers is, that in the USA in reality there is no  democracy, because the nation has a duopoly, where two capitalist parties alternate in power every four or eight years, and they don't even allow minor parties to participate in the "election" debates.

The system is in reality, 
A RIGGED FARCE!

USA-Cuba Normalization of Relations at a Snail's Pace

Source: Marxism-Leninism Today:
Editors' note: That fact that the Buena Vista Social Club has performed  at the  White House and President Obama has visited Cuba is not enough.  Cuban officials  are polite in the press release below. But the  illegal and brutal  US blockade remains  in place.   It will be up to US  activists  to force the pace of normalization and end the blockade.

Press release issued by the Cuban delegation to the Third Meeting of the Cuba-U.S. Bilateral Commission

16 May 2016

During the meeting, both delegations reviewed the implementation of the agreements adopted at the second meeting of this Commission as well as the results achieved in the course of the last six months

The third meeting of the Cuba-US Bilateral Commission was held in Havana on May 16, 2016.

The Cuban delegation was headed by Josefina Vidal Ferreiro, Director-General of the U.S. Division at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Cuba, and the U.S. delegation was headed by Ambassador Kristie Kenney, Counselor of the State Department, and John S. Creamer, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs.

During the meeting, both delegations reviewed the implementation of the agreements adopted at the second meeting of this Commission as well as the results achieved in the course of the last six months.

Both delegations highlighted the increase of official visits in both directions, including the one paid by President Barack Obama to Havana in March, 2016; as well as of the technical meetings held to discuss topics of common interest and the bilateral instruments signed in order to expand mutually beneficial cooperation between Cuba and the United States.

However, similar advances have not been seen in the economic field because of the continued implementation of the blockade. Despite the steps that have been taken, there are still significant restrictions that limit U.S. exports; very few Cuban products can be imported by the United States; U.S. investments in Cuba are not allowed except in telecommunications; and there are no normal banking relations between both countries.

Therefore, the Cuban delegation insisted that the lifting of the blockade is a priority, because it continues to harm the Cuban people and Cuba's relations with third countries, and is also the main obstacle to the development of our economy. Likewise, the Cuban delegation reaffirmed the need for the territory illegally occupied by the Guantánamo Naval Base to be returned to Cuba, and called for the abrogation of other policies enacted in the past which stamped bilateral relations with a hostile character and are still in force.

Both delegations identified the steps they will be taking during the next months as part of the process towards the improvement of relations, namely, the materialisation of high level visits as well as technical exchanges on environmental protection, hydrography and law enforcement, which include the combat of trafficking in drugs and persons, and migration fraud. Both delegations expressed their intention to sign new agreements to cooperate in areas such as health, agriculture, meteorology, seismology, protected land areas, oil spill response, the combat of drug-trafficking and search and rescue operations, among others. They also agreed to initiate a dialogue on intellectual property and follow up on those dealing with climate change and the economic and commercial regulations in force in both countries.

The Cuban delegation reiterated the Cuban Government willingness to continue advancing during the next few months towards the construction of a new type of relationship between both countries, based on a professional and respectful dialogue, equality and reciprocity. Both delegations agreed to hold the fourth meeting of the Bilateral Commission in September, 2016, in Washington DC.

On Tuesday, May 17, the second meeting of the law enforcement dialogue between authorities from both countries will be held in Havana.
