Granted, Obama administration spokespersons and the mainstream media (but I repeat myself) describe this weeks event differently than does this column title. Something about a Cuban embassy formally opening? in Washington, D.C. ? If I read these things correctly?
The human rights activist mentioned in this column title is also a Presidential Medal of Freedom winner. More fascinatingly still, hes also black. Even more amazingly, hes a foreign Latino human rights-activist from a nation where recent polls show over half the residents craving to emigrate to the U.S.
While liberals applaud how the smiling, slobbering, tail-wagging Obama recently rolled-over yet again for Raul Castro (plan to open U.S. embassy) Cuba-watchers remind thatyes, though the Caitlyn Jenner saga is certainly fascinatingthe U.S. Constitution is again being trashed.
This week Wal-Mart announced they were yanking all items bearing the Confederate flag from their shelves.
With a little help from her friendly Dad (Paul) Stella McCartney has made quite a name for herself as an ultra-chic fashion designer. This week she introduced her spring line on Manhattans Elizabeth Street with a Cuba-themed garden party where Fidel Castro and Che Guevara featured among the main props of the cheeky soiree.
Today President Obama further opened the financial floodgates from the U.S. to the worlds most notorious deadbeat nationwho is also a State Sponsor of Terrorism.
Apparently unsatisfied with his historic propaganda services for Castros Stalinist regime, ABCs Jim Davila reported for duty again this week. Davilas interview with 21 year old Elian Gonzalez is making major media waves.
Imagine what ultra-sophisticated Washington Post writers think of people who believe their cancer can be cured by a lying on of hands! by the likes of Reverend Ike, Benny Hinn or the ghosts of Oral Roberts and Sister Aimee McPherson?
Well, its official. After last months chat and handshake with Stalinist dictator (and mass-murdering sadist) Raul Castro, President Obama kindly removed the Castro family fiefdom from the State Departments list of terror-sponsoring nations.
Give it BACK! GEEVE EET BACK! shrieked Russian reporter Paulina Leonovich as black thugs ran off with her purse in Baltimore last week. This reporter works for Vladimir Putins RT (Russia Today) TV network, which specializes in featuring the terrible oppression of innocent blacks in racist America.
The shriek sounded like a cockroach was spotted in the bathtub or a spider in the sink. But the second shriek convinced me it was something worse.
Sure, it was one of those hoary historic trivialities that went down "before he was even born"--but President Obama finally signed off on his ultimate betrayal of Cuban freedom (removal of Castro regime from list of terror-sponsors/opening of economic lifeline) on the very week marking the 54th anniversary of the Bay of Pigs Invasion.
Too bad Barack Obama didnt spend less time in Chicago with Bill Ayres and Bernardine Dohrn and more with typical South Side homeys. The future president of the worlds most powerful nation might have learned about real- world diplomacy.
For a few days there it appeared that if a resident of Indiana had chosen to refrain from commerce with another person and was sued for discrimination, this resident could have found legal recourse to defend himself against the suit.
Ted Cruz-Derangement-Syndrome went viral in the media this week.
As usual, what many racists! and haters! (i.e. normal Americans) suspected about Ferguson from the get-go proved true. Michael Brown was a serial thug, thief and a dope-fiend who rather than meekly surrender-- attacked his would-be captor in a manner (though not context) that would have gladdened the heart of George Patton.
If only the Republican Senators had followed up their letter to the terror-sponsoring Iranian officials this week with a visit and a handshake!
Unlike so many of his skits in the U.S., however, OBriens humor in Cuba was never at the expense of politicians.
Along with an estimated 637,000 people from the U.S. recently, Paris Hilton and Conan OBrien somehow squeaked through the cracks of the diabolical U.S. blockade of Cuba for a visit to Havana. (Btw, in the 1950ws when Cuba was a U.S. tourist playground! an average 200,000 Americans visited Cuba annually.)
Che Guevaras daughter Aleida is in Canada this week whooping up president Obamas opening to the Stalinist regime her father co-founded, and saying hed certainly approve.
