Cuba por Siempre: Lo que Donald Trump debe conocer sobre #Cuba.

Por Arthur González

Antes de empantanarse en una conversación con los miembros de la mafia anticubana radicada en Miami, Donald Trump, candidato presidencial por el partido republicano, debería conocer algunas cuestiones medulares de quienes son sus líderes, cuál es su pasado y que han hecho contra una pequeña isla que solo decidió soberanamente tomar un camino diferente al impuesto desde la primera ocupación yanqui en 1898.

By Neysi Hernandez

The head of U.S. division at Cuba’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Josefina Vidal, on Tuesday denounced Washington’s migration policies and its effect [on] the Caribbean island.

“Latin American asks EE.UU. [to] review Cuba migration policy towards that affects its extraterritorial impact,” Vidal tweeted using the Spanish initials for the United States.

She also shared a letter sent to the U.S. by nine Latin American nations Monday that demanded Washington revise its immigration policy toward Latin America and the Caribbean.

Jill Stein is coming to Florida in September on her 2016 Presidential Campaign Tour.



The Green Party’s Presidential Candidate for 2012 and 2016, Dr. Jill Stein will speak at USF’s Marshall Center Ballroom on Wednesday, September 28, 2016 from 6:30 PM until 9 PM as part of her tour through Florida. This event is FREE! (Green Party of Florida)

Soy Aries

Un Aries es una persona llena de energía y entusiasmo. Pionero y aventurero, le encantan los retos, la libertad y las nuevas ideas. A los Aries les gusta liderar y prefieren dar instrucciones a recibirlas. Son independientes y preocupados por su propia ambición y objetivos. Tienen una energía envidiable que a veces les lleva a ser agresivos, inquietos, argumentativos, tercos. Es fácil ofender a los Aries y, cuando se sienten ofendidos, es difícil hacer las paces con ellos. Aries es el primer signo del zodiaco y, en este sentido, su papel es empezar algo y liderar. Si un Aries empieza a creer en una buena causa, luchará sin descanso para promocionarla. (Periódico ABC, España)

Airlines that have received permission to fly to Cuba

While Alaska, American, Delta, Frontier, JetBlue, Southwest, Spirit, and United have received tentative approval from the U.S. Department of Transportation to fly to Havana, their flight schedules have not yet been confirmed. As such, the airlines cannot begin selling airfare to Havana until government approval is finalized. (Travel and Leisure)

JG:  Not all airlines are created equal. During my vacation in Spain in April 2015, one of the airlines listed above lost my suitcase temporarily. I could not change clothes for 72 hours. Be prepared for inconveniences and snafus. That is part of traveling in today's  modern world.

In the United States, capitalism is a synonym for dishonesty, greed and corruption

Capitalism in the U.S. does not want you to either consider or vote for an alternative third party. That is why the two thoroughly corrupt and dishonest capitalist parties, Republicans and Democrats, put so many never-ending obstacles for the participation of Greens or Libertarians in the Presidential Debates.

If the Greens and Libertarians are not allowed to participate in the debates, I will not waste my time listening to the crooked candidates of the Republican and Democratic parties.

My mind is made up already. I will not waste my ballot voting for their anointed crooks, Trump & Hillary.

I will cast my vote for Dr. Jill Stein of Green Party USA. I don't patronize horse tracks that only allow two horses per race. 

What do you think about a 'journalist' who starts a 'news' report by disparaging and bad mouthing a country?

The case in point is a gentleman called Alan Gomez who writes for USA Today.

He did not impress me very much with his "Cuba plays a critical role in Colombia peace deal."

Here is his first paragraph:

"Cuba may seem an unlikely peace broker given its history of leading and inspiring armed revolutions."

He is biased from the start. He sounds like an Yankee imperialism stooge.

The People's Chant that Brought Down a War Criminal President of the USA



Hey, Hey, LBJ!
How Many Kids
Did You Kill Today?


As you may have noticed, we are having a presidential election this coming November.

The Democratic Party has nominated a war hawk. The Republicans call her Crooked Hillary. I couldn't agree more.

If you elect her, you can expect another ugly and bloody war. The Democratic Party has always been a big promoter of wars in the past. Their dishonest politicians never send their sons and daughters to participate, and die in it, after they start a new one.

The American people have to start thinking about what chant we are going to use against Crooked Hillary to bring her down, after she surely starts her first new war.

Democrat Barack Obama promised to end the wars in Iraq, and Afghanistan. LE LIED! He started a new war involvement in Syria, Yemen and Libya. If he had any decency, he would resign.

I call on all talented musical artists to start thinking about it. If you come up with a good chant to use against crooked Hillary, I will publish it in this blog. We need to promote Peace, not war.

#VoteGreenParty2016. They are Peace makers, not war fanatics, like the Democratic Party.

It is time to appoint a U.S. Special Prosecutor to investigate the 'Pay to Play' activities of Bill and Hillary Clinton and their Foundation

Corruption in the USA is a growing problem, especially in the Democratic Party.

It is time for the U.S. Congress to repeal the Helms-Burton Act and the Cuban Adjustment Act

The Cuban Adjustment Act encourages illegal immigration from Cuba. It is one more example of the dishonesty of U.S. politicians.

The Helms Burton Act has been a monumental failure. It has been condemned by 193 nations at the General Assembly of the United Nations.

2015: Cuba issues postage stamp to commemorate Pope Francis visit to the island


Source:
filateliadesdecuba.wordpress.com

Cuba Journal forgot to remind you what happened on February & March of 1996, twenty years ago.

In 1996, Bill Clinton became a PROSTITUTE by jumping in bed with none other than U.S. Senator Jesse Helms, one of the most racist U. S. senators in the history of the USA.

I bring your the  appropriate two lines from Wikipedia:

Helms–Burton Act 

1) The Act is named for its original sponsors, Senator Jesse Helms, Republican of North Carolina, and Representative Dan Burton, Republican of Indiana.

2) The law was passed by the 104th United States Congress on March 6, 1996 and enacted into law by the 42nd President of the United States Bill Clinton on March 12, 1996.

After that infamous date, The publisher/editor of Cuba Journal stopped believing in the honesty of the U.S. Democratic Party.

In Feb of 1996 a Florida outfit named Brothers to The Rescue, which many people claim was totally controlled, financed and directed by the CIA, had violated Cuba's sovereignty.

They had been warned by the Cuban Government not to do it again.

Cuba shot down two of their small planes when they continued their provocations.

They never did it again. They learned their lesson.

I hope that Hillary Clinton is defeated in November 8th.

Antidote for Trumpty Dumpty Bite


Trumpty Dumpty




A critique of USA communists

On Aug 5, 2016, John Bachtell, a prominent USA communist, authored an article titled “Green Party “safe state” strategy is neither safe nor a strategy.”

Of course, Mr. Bachtell is entitled to get on his favorite soap box and express his opinion.

But freedom of expression is a two-way street. Here is my four cents contribution:

 1) One of the reason that CPUSA (Communist Party USA) does not attract more supporters in our country, is that their movement is too autocratic. No grass roots there. Everything emanates from the top. Shades of the Stalinist period in the defunct USSR.

2) They themselves never offer candidates during election time. Their autocratic movement scares people away. USA communists wouldn't even be elected to become dog catchers.

3) They whine too much about everything.

4) They are too enamored of Barack Obama and his Democratic Party.

The Green Party of the United States is a very valid alternative to the total destruction that the two major capitalist parties have sowed in the United States.

Of those two parties, the Democrats are more corrupt than the Republicans, but they share equally that in the last 55 years they have totally destroyed the USA, a once prosperous nation.

It was the Democrats of Bill Clinton and the Republicans of the two Bushes that have exported our best paying jobs to low wage countries like Mexico and China.

The two capitalist parties defend the interests of the banks, Wall Street and the capitalist millionaires and billionaires.

How can CPUSA defend that?

If CPUSA defends Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton they are defending the continuation of the total destruction of the USA.

I am proud that I will be voting in November for the presidential candidate of the Green Party USA, Dr. Jill Stein.

I voted for her too in 2012, after the very sorry record of Barack Obama, specially on the Cuba issue.

Voting is not like going to the race track to vote for a horse.

Vote for the person that you believe in. If you have weak knees, stay home.

Green Party: Capitalist Presidential Candidates: VILLAINS


This year’s presidential race is “from hunger.” The major political parties have presented the American people with two of the most wretched, ethically-challenged candidates in American history.
Many call them villains. We have to agree.
Jill Stein is the only candidate who puts people over profits every time. She’s also the only candidate in the race that stands with the American voter on common-sense policies including...
  • Getting off fossil fuel by 2030 to stop climate change
  • A Green New Deal jobs program that would provide 20 million good jobs to replace and repair our crumbling infrastructure
  • Making higher education tuition-free to all
  • Single-payer health care as a right
    Many are finding out about Jill’s platform - many are listening.
