Bad POTUS Bill Clinton. [Democrats + Republicans = Unbridled & Evil American Capitalism.]

In 1992, Clinton removed antitrust language from the Democratic platform and and began bashing bank regulators.

Once in office, he gutted anti-monopoly restrictions on broadcasters, laying the groundwork for media concentration that brought us Fox News and Rush Limbaugh.

He touched off an unprecedented wave of consolidations in the defense industry. He also repealed the Glass-Steagall Act, which had been erected during the New Deal to separate big banks and investment firms, and moved power into shadow markets free from regulation.

The result was the worldwide economic collapse of 2008, brought on by the megabanks and insurance giants created in the wake of the repeal of Glass Steagall.

Rindió homenaje Raúl al Héroe Nacional y al Comandante en Jefe

El General de Ejército Raúl Castro Ruz depositó este lunes flores ante las tumbas del Héroe Nacional José Martí y del Comandante en Jefe de la Revolución Cubana Fidel Castro Ruz, en el cementerio de Santa Ifigenia en Santiago de Cuba

Autor: Yaima Puig Meneses | internet@granma.cu 14 de agosto de 2017 17:08:48

El General de Ejército Raúl Castro Ruz depositó este lunes flores ante las tumbas del Héroe Nacional José Martí y del Comandante en Jefe de la Revolución Cubana Fidel Castro Ruz, en el cementerio de Santa Ifigenia en Santiago de Cuba, acompañado por el Primer Secretario del Comité Provincial del Partido, compañero Lázaro Expósito Canto.

El 13 de agosto en horas de la mañana Raúl visitó en Playa Las Coloradas el complejo monumentario que recuerda el lugar donde se produjo el desembarco de los expedicionarios del yate Granma el 2 de diciembre de 1956.

Ello tuvo lugar justo a 60 años, 8 meses y 11 días de la fecha que marca el nacimiento del Ejército Rebelde que bajo el mando de Fidel supo reponerse del revés de Alegría de Pío, reagrupar sus fuerzas con el apoyo de campesinos humildes y del Movimiento 26 de julio, expandir la lucha insurrecional, hacia otras zonas del Oriente del país y más adelante a las provincias centrales y Pinar del Río, y derrotar al ejército batistiano a pesar de la superioridad en hombres y armamento.

Durante la visita Raúl rememoró aquellos difíciles momentos en los que se puso de manifiesto la inclaudicable fe del Comandante en Jefe en la victoria.

Who is Marco Gutierrez, one of the poster boys in the previous Alt Right Facists CJ post?

JG: It appears to me that he is a Mexican-American who has turned against his ethnic heritage. For free or for profit?

Let us see what Wikipedia says about him:

URL Link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marco_Gutierrez

Marco Gutierrez is a Mexican-American political activist and the co-founder of Latinos for Trump, an online organization dedicated to promoting the candidacy of Donald Trump in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

In July 2016, Gutierrez said that this group had 20,000 members.

He gained significant media attention in September 2016 when he said on MSNBC that the spread of Latino culture in the United States, if it was not stopped, would lead to "taco trucks on every corner."
[JG; to me. this sounds like a very racist statement.]

Subsequently, the New York Daily News reported that he and his wife, Jennifer, had filed for personal bankruptcy fourteen times and had had his real estate license revoked.

He has also argued that Trump's plan to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border is both physical and symbolic, and has praised Trump's leadership abilities.

JG: My questions are:

1) Is he doing all his work-for-Trump "thing" for free, or is he getting paid? If so, how much is he getting paid by El Trompo?

2) How much money does he receive, per person, from people who are members of Latinos for Trump?

3) Is he an associate of David Duke?

When Klansman & U.S. Nazi David Duke endorsed Donald Trump in 2016, he accepted the support, instead of repudiating it.

3) Enough of this nonsense!

4) It is time to IMPEACH Donald Trump and remove him from office. ASAP.

It is very clear to me that Donald Trump is not content with how much money he currently has.

Susan Rice, the former national security adviser of president Barack Obama has characterized as lunacy the act of starting a preventive war against the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

I personally repudiate and condemn the recent war-mongering statements of president Donald Trump. What will the American people do?

If the USA was able to contain the now defunct Soviet Union when it aquired nuclear weapons, we can also contain peacefully the D.P.R.K.

The question that we have to ask ourselves is what type of person do we currently have in the White House, a rational person or a lunatic?

S.472 - The Cuba Trade Act of 2017 was introduced on 2/28/2017 by U.S. Senator Moran.

U.S. Senators Present Bill to Repeal 'Backwards' Cuba Embargo

Congressional Record: Aug 2, 2017: U.S. Senator Ron Wyden (D-Oregon) US-Cuba Trade Act of 2017


  Mr. WYDEN. Mr. President, today I wish to propose a new day in U.S.
relations with the country of Cuba. With his recent imposition of new
restrictions, the President presented one vision of that relationship--
one that looks backwards and reverts to a failed policy of isolation
that has done nothing to improve the lives of the Cuban people and has
harmed the American economy. I would like to present an alternative
vision--one that looks to the future and at fostering the exchange of
ideas and commerce between the two countries.

  It is often noted that Cuba is less than 100 miles away, but decades
behind the United States, in no small part because of the U.S. embargo.
Decades of the same, tired, failing economic policies left the Cuban
Government in place and only hurt the Cuban people and American farmers
and manufacturers.

  As Cuban-American relations thawed under Presidents Bush and Obama,
the Cuban Government decided to try something different. Private
entrepreneurs are operating an increasing number of restaurants, taxis,
and other tourist-related businesses. Cubans are opening up their homes
for visitors to stay in and selling products directly to visiting
Americans. In addition, the government's grip on information and
communication is necessarily weakening as technology and the Internet
inevitably permeate the country.

  The U.S. has come a long way since the 1990s and hardly resembles the
world of the 1960s. Our policies toward Cuba should reflect that
change. The U.S.-Cuba Trade Act of 2017 would completely remove the
architecture of sanctions against Cuba and establish normal trade
relations with that country.

  I want to be clear that this is not a free pass for the Cuban
Government. I continue to have grave concerns about its suppression of
pro-democracy movements, but I reject the view that continuing to try
and ostracize Cuba will bring positive change. The past five decades
provide empirical evidence that it will not. I also reject the cynical
argument that the U.S. must choose between engagement with Cuba and
support for basic human rights and dignity. Indeed, if the past half
century has shown us anything, it is that smart, principled engagement
is the way to bring about greater economic and political freedom for
the Cuban people.

  Just as important as what the embargo means for the Cuban people is
what it means for U.S. farmers and businesses. Even with the changes
made by the Obama administration, it remains almost impossible to do
business in Cuba. Cuba is a natural customer of the United States, but
restrictions on credit and travel, among others, have severely hampered
the ability of U.S. exporters to do business in the Cuban market. The
question is: What are we getting by surrendering a market that should
be ours to the EU, China, Brazil, and others? I am afraid that the
answer is nothing.

  That is why I introduced the U.S.-Cuba Trade Act of 2017, to finally
put an end to the ineffective embargo against Cuba.

Tampa Bay Cuban American Crook, Vicente Amor

If you are a frequent visitor to Cuba Journal, then you may already know about this story.

He took money from many people, making all kinds of promises about "travel to Cuba."

When he had enough money in his pocket, he dissapered.

There were people who lost more money that I did.

The publlisher/editor of Cuba Journal has a court judgement against Vicente Amor.

If you know of his whereabouts, please get in touch with me, at your convenience. Thank you.

No Al Bloqueo Contra Cuba: Solidarity with Cuba in New York

New York, Aug 2 (Prensa Latina) The solidarity movement with Cuba in New York and New Jersey is preparing actions to demand the lifting of the US blockade against the island of Cuba, said activist Frank Vergara here Tuesday.

In his statements to Prensa Latina, Vergara, coordinator of the solidarity movement, said that activities to accompany a new vote against the US economic, commercial and financial blockade in the United Nations, will be in the center of the campaign.

The UN General Assembly will hold a debate on the initiative that is after the stop of the unilateral and extra-territorial sanctions by Washington against Cuba in the beginnings of November.

Since 1992, the vote for the stop of the blockade, has received a categorical support from progressive forces, until it reached the vote in favor of 191 out of the 193 member countries of the organization.

According to with the activist, the movement of solidarity with Cuba takes as a priority to incorporate more young people in the United States into the efforts to defeat the blockade and to impel the support to the Cuban Revolution.

Vergara warned that the arrival to the White House of Republican President Donald Trump constitutes an additional challenge, from its announcement of recrudesce the blockade and of reverting advances in the bilateral relations, achieved in the last two years of the previous administration led by Barack Obama.

Declaración del Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores de la República de Cuba

Este domingo 30 de julio de 2017, durante las elecciones para la Asamblea Nacional Constituyente en la República Bolivariana de Venezuela, el pueblo venezolano ha demostrado al mundo que es dueño pleno de sus derechos soberanos y que milita decisivamente del lado de la paz, en defensa de la seguridad ciudadana, de la independencia y la libre determinación de su Patria, como lo han hecho a lo largo de toda la historia de América Latina y el Caribe, desde Bolívar.

Venezuela se volcó a las urnas como nunca antes había ocurrido en un proceso constituyente. Ese pueblo, que desafió los tranques, las guarimbas, los sabotajes económicos y las amenazas internacionales, derrotó con sus votos la estrategia del imperialismo y las oligarquías y de una oposición que no ha titubeado para desatar las expresiones más brutales de crueldad. Ofende el cinismo de todos los que pretenden culpar al gobierno y a los defensores del pueblo de los crímenes cometidos.

Cuba denuncia la puesta en marcha de una bien concertada operación internacional, dirigida desde Washington, con apoyo del Secretario General de la OEA, destinada a silenciar la voz del pueblo venezolano, a desconocer su voluntad, a imponerle la rendición mediante ataques y sanciones económicas.

El gobierno de los Estados Unidos, por su parte, ha impuesto directamente al Presidente constitucional Nicolás Maduro Moro sanciones insólitas, violatorias del Derecho Internacional y arbitrarias, que repudiamos.

Conocemos bien todas estas prácticas intervencionistas. Creen que a través de eso lograrán la sumisión del pueblo a una oposición títere que financiaron y que ahora promete hacer arder el país.

Una vez más, reiteramos lo expresado por el Presidente de los Consejos de Estado y de Ministros, General de Ejército Raúl Castro Ruz el pasado 14 de julio en la Asamblea Nacional:

“La agresión y la violencia golpista contra Venezuela dañan a toda «Nuestra América» y solo benefician los intereses de quienes se empeñan en dividirnos para ejercer su dominación sobre nuestros pueblos, sin que les importe generar conflictos de consecuencias incalculables en esta región, como los que estamos presenciando en diferentes lugares del mundo”.

“Alertamos hoy que quienes pretenden derrocar por vías inconstitucionales, violentas y golpistas a la Revolución Bolivariana y Chavista asumirán una seria responsabilidad ante la historia”.

Nada puede detener a un pueblo dueño de su destino. Solo los venezolanos pueden decidir cómo superar sus problemas y trazar su futuro. Basta de injerencias, de conciliábulos, de traiciones al espíritu bolivariano.

Reiteramos nuestra inquebrantable solidaridad con el pueblo y el gobierno bolivariano y chavista, y con su unidad cívico-militar que lidera el presidente constitucional Nicolás Maduro Moros. Como dijo Fidel en la Universidad Central de Caracas durante su visita en enero de 1959: “la postura del Gobierno Revolucionario de Cuba será una postura firme y sin vacilaciones de ninguna clase, porque ha llegado la hora de que los pueblos sepan defenderse y sepan plantear sus derechos”.

The song was first recorded by Rita Montaner for Columbia in 1928.

The music was composed by Moises Simons, the Cuban son of a Basque musician. The royalties from this one song made Simons a wealthy man. Peanut Vendor was a million seller for Victor, was the number 1 song of 1931, and was the first million selling Cuban 78 record.

Peanuts-they're nice and hot, peanuts-I sell a lot
If you haven't got bananas, don't be blue
Peanuts in a little bag are calling you
If you're looking for an early morning treat
Get some double jointed peanuts-good to eat
A merry twinkle in his eye
He's got a way that makes you buy

English words by Marion Sunshine and Wolfe Gilbert - Spanish words by Moises Simons

Don Azpiazu introduced authentic Cuban dance music to US audiences when his Havana Casino Orchestra travelled to New York to cut EL MANISERO "The Peanut Vendor" for Victor Records in 1930. The record started a rumba craze which lasted until the 1940s although the record is technically not a rumba. The catchy song became one of the biggest selling Cuban hits in history. Azpiazu had star musicians Julio Cueva (trumpet), Mario Bauza (Sax), and singer Antonio Machin in his group. He also used American singers such as Chick Bullock to help popularize his music and paved the way for later bands such as Xavier Cugat and Desi Arnaz.

JG: When I was a kid, I would purchase very hot (not spicy) cucurruchos de mani. Cost: five Cuban centavos. They were delicious. The adults would dance to this popular Cuban song of Moises Simons.

Link to the PDF File for S.1287  (An easy to read three page bill)

I am greatly dissappointed that Marco Rubio is not a co-sponsor, but I am very happy that Mr. Wyden and Mr. Merkley of Oregon are both co-sponsors. And of course, it also makes me super happy, that the next President of the United States, Mr. Sanders also supports this bill.

If "news" reports about Cuba or the USA are more than one page long, I am not reading them.

There are thousands of "news." Some of them are just too lengthy. There will be no new posts from Cuba Journal tomorrow.

The Cuban goverment has said it many, many times: they want to have friendly relations with the USA, based on respect for Cuba's sovereignty, national independence and respect for the Cuban people. They WILL NOT accept dictates or impositions from anyone.

Cops Lose

“A biblical passage that has long been displayed at a Tennessee city’s police headquarters will be removed following a complaint from an organization that advocates for the separation of church and state,” states an Associated Press story in the Washington Post. “The East Tennessee chapter of the Freedom From Religion Foundation filed a complaint in February over the Knoxville Police Department’s plaque.”


The cops decided to go back to eating doughnuts.
