Cuba Chooses to Resist Trump

Starvation Is No OPTION!!
     Today -- Saturday, June 15, 2019 -- Cubita Now -- reports that Cuba's President Miguel Diaz-Canel -- reemphasized his determination to resist the Trump administration's Little Havana-powered desire "to starve this island's children" as a means of softening up "we adults" for capitulation to a few Miami extremists. President Diaz-Canel said today, "Beginning in 2020 Cuba will decentralize its economy that already has about 40% private control. We will survive the latest Republican rule in Washington even as it scares off many other nations, including many American businesses, that desire trade with us."
      And so...as of Saturday, June 15th, 2019...the sovereign Cuban flag still waves in the warm Caribbean breezes.
      But Cuba is abundantly aware that another Republican administration in Washington is totally aligned with a handful of rich and powerful Counter Revolutionaries in Miami and in the U. S. Congress...meaning that the Little Havana stalwarks in Miami are determined to re-capture Cuba while Donald Trump remains President of the United States.

Trump Starved More Cubans Today

Americans ACCEPT Cuban Genocide!!
{Saturday, June 15th, 2019}
     This photo of Cuba's President Miguel Diaz-Canel shows him listening to Cubans reacting to his speech yesterday -- June 14, 2019 -- at the closing session of the National Association of Economists and Accountants {ANEC}. President Diaz-Canel, Cuba's former Education Minister, had used his speech to address what he considers the Trump administration's "concerted effort to starve our people, our children, even more than previous Republican rulers in the U. S. have done." He added, "Cuba will never renounce its ambition to be prosperous and sustainable regardless of imperialist America. We need the talent and contributions of our economists and accountants to keep a superpower from starving and depriving our children as a means to defeat us."
       The Seattle-based travel giant Expedia this week -- June 13, 2019 -- agreed to pay the Trump administration $325,406 because it assisted travel to Cuba that violated U.S. sanctions that are now designed by President Trump to completely strangle the Cuban economy to appease a handful of Counter Revolutionary extremists. These new actions provided further indication that only vicious extremists led by Marco Rubio, the Diaz-Balart brothers Mario and Lincoln, and Mauricio Claver-Carone are in total control in using the Trump presidency to recapture Cuba. Because of Cuba's uniqueness related to the USA's foreign policies, not even the intimidated mainstream left-wing U. S. media that is viciously anti-Trump is allowed to question the extremely greedy and revengeful motives of the small clan now dominating Trump's Cuban genocide. For example, it is not politically or socially correct...or healthy...to inform the American people that such Little Havana stalwarts in Miami as the Diaz-Balart brothers are the sons of Rafael Diaz-Balart who was a key Minister in the Batista dictatorship until he fled the Cuban Revolution in January of 1959 to become one of the richest and most powerful Counter Revolutionary zealots on U. S. soil.
    Because Counter Revolutionary Cubans based in Miami have virtually dictated the Cuban narrative in the U. S. since 1959, Americans are not supposed to comprehend historic photos like the one above...but it's a precursor to why the Trump administration in June of 2019 can starve Cubans on the island. This trio of fierce officials in the Batista dictatorship were attending a political rally in the southeastern town of Chivirico, Sierra Maestra, in 1958. In the middle is Rafael Diaz-Balart and he is flanked by Rodolfo Masferrer on the left and Rolando Masferrer on the right. Rafael was a key Batista Minister and the Masferrer brothers headed the famed and the feared Masferrer Tigers, the army unit that brutally assaulted any individuals or groups of Cubans even remotely suspected of opposing the Batista-Mafia dictatorship. {Please understand, when I post photos like this and describe them, if you question it I expect you to GOGGLE the authenticity of the photo and what I  said about it. So, by all means, Google "Rafael Diaz-Balart" and "The Masferrer Tigers"...because all three of these men are typical of the Batista rulers in Cuba who in 1959 fled to Miami and instantaneously became rich and powerful Counter Revolutionary forces. Rafael Diaz-Balart was born in Banes, Cuba, in 1926 -- the same year Fidel Castro was born close by. Fidel died at age 90 in Havana in 2016 and Rafael died in South Florida in 2005. But Rafael's sons to this day in Miami and in the U. S. Congress are fierce and unchecked anti-Castro zealots like their father}.
       The photo above shows Rafael Diaz-Balart flanked by his four sons at a point they were in the top echelon of Counter Revolutionary Cubans in Miami. On the left above is a rich banker and second from the right is a News Anchor at NBC, MSNBC, and Telemundo. Second from the left is Havana-born Lincoln Diaz-Balart and on the far-right is Mario Diaz-Balart. For the past two decades either Lincoln or Mario or both at the same time have represented Miami in the U. S. Congress as fierce Counter-Revolutionary Cuban-Americans. This photo, truth be known, reflects the fact that starting in 1959 money from the ousted Batista dictatorship in Cuba totally overwhelmed South Florida first and then, thanks to fierce connections to the Republican Party {especially the Bush dynasty}, such rich and powerful Cuban-Americans eventually overwhelmed Washington and particularly the U. S. Congress...resulting in fiercely lucrative and unstoppable laws such as the Embargo, the Torricelli Bill, the Helms-Burton Act, Radio-TV Marti, etc., etc. Yes, indeed!! Recapturing Cuba and punishing Cubans on the island has always been priorities of Batistiano-loving U. S. Cubans. But, as in Cuba back in the 1950s, money appears to be THE top priority.
     Expedia's forced capitulation to Trump's genocide against Cuba on June 13-2019 is meant to send dire warnings to all other companies in the U. S. and the world not to oppose the superpower USA's efforts to totally strangle Cuba's economy once and for all by stifling tourism to the island. The Trump administration on June 13th stupidly and grossly admitted that Expedia's sanction violations ended in 2014, back when the USA's president was the decent Barack Obama. Additionally, the Trump administration also stated that Expedia violated U. S. laws against Cuba that had been "in effect since 1963." That idiotic quote reminds the world that the U. S. genocidal actions against revolutionary Cuba have been "IN EFFECT" for six decades BUT still have not recaptured the pugnacious island for generations of Batistiano-exiles headquartered in Miami's Little Havana section. Of course, neither intelligence nor decency have ever been prerequisites for a handful of Little Havana exiles to totally dominate all Republican administrations since 1959. Today's Expedia capitulation is confirmation that the Republican Trump is merely a tool of Rubio, the Diaz-Balart brothers, Claver-Carone, etc., with most Cuban-Americans and most Americans being non-factors within the  bowels of the U. S. democracy when it comes to Cuba.
    A branch of the U. S. Treasury Department -- OFAC, the Office of Foreign Assets Control -- is busy leveling fines against companies believed to be aiding tourism to Cuba. This week on June 13-2019 I personally received a Treasury Department email detailing that very SUCCESSFUL fine against Expedia. But then that email continued with these words: "OFAC today separately announced a $222,705 settlement with Hotelbeds USA, Inc. Hotelbeds USA, incorporated in Florida, is a U. S. subsidiary of Hotelbeds Group, headquartered in Mallorca, Spain. Hotelbeds USA has agreed o pay $222,705 to settle its potential civil liability for assisting persons with unauthorized Cuba-related travel services. OFAC today also separately announced a $40,320 civil settlement with an individual and Cubasphere, Inc..." Such fines are paid by companies who desire to do future business related to the USA, which exerts enormous influence worldwide because it is the world's economic superpower. The U. S. economic embargo against little Cuba has existed since 1962 and somehow it has survived until at least June of 2019, something that PERHAPS very few much larger countries could have survived under such sanctions for six decades.
     Of course, sanctions and fines and a lot of other things against Cuba have been integral facets of the USA's financial, political, and military landscape for six decades and counting. That is not likely to cease or be restricted as long as a few Counter Revolutionaries in Miami and in the U. S. Congress or the Republican White Houses are unhappy about the revolutionary rule in Cuba. Meanwhile, as indicated above by the June 13-2019 proliferation of successful sanction-inspired fines, there are a lot of Cuban-American lawyers in Miami and in Washington who longed for President Trump to activate Title 3 of the Helms-Burton Act. Title 3 had long been viewed as an absolute Gold Mine for Counter Revolutionary extremists IF they could get a Republican president to activate it. And, of course, President Trump on behalf of extremists in Little Havana {Miami} activated Title 3 of Helms-Burton.
    This photo taken by Jim Young for Reuters illustrates precisely why many believe the Trump administration's activation of Helms-Burton's Title 3 will finally starve Cuba into total collapse followed by a quick submission to Little Havana zealots. As indicated above, the U. S. Treasury Department's OFAC division is busy levying all those sanction-fines designed to totally strangle Cuba's economy while, of course, enriching and empowering already rich and powerful Cuban-American Counter Revolutionaries. At the podium pointing above is Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin. Standing silently with the pad and pencil is the EXTREMELY OMINOUS and threatening John Bolton, who is easily the most renowned war-monger in Washington's recent history. Dating back to the George W. Bush presidency, Bolton has famously and frantically advocated a regime-change in Cuba. Now as Trump's National Security Adviser, Bolton apparently has the clearance to put his dear BAY OF PIGS/BRIGADE 2506 friends in Miami back in charge of Cuba. In the photo above, Bolton's stoic but scary presence seems to be well understood by Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.
     President Obama in 2016 became the first U. S. President to visit Cuba since Herbert Hoover arrived on a warship in 1928.
     While in Cuba President Obama made it a salient point to tell the people: "Cuba does not need to fear a threat from the United States." When the brave and decent Obama, a Democrat, sincerely spoke those words, he did not anticipate that he would be succeeded by another Republican president, Trump, totally controlled by a mere handful of self-serving and greedy Cuban-Americans. The Obama-to-Trump transition, as personified by the island of Cuba, reflects a dire weakness of America's two-party political system within the basic fabrics and precious pillars of the world's Superpower Democracy. This week -- June 13, 2019 -- the Expedia headlines related to the Trump administration's genocide against innocent people on a vulnerable nearby island genuinely reflects why the U. S. support of the thieving and brutal Batista-Mafia dictators in Cuba back in the 1950s was WRONG and undemocratic and the USA's cowardly tolerance of the Trump genocide against innocent Cubans in June of 2019 is also WRONG and undemocratic.
     Since the 1950s the only U. S. President with both the guts and the decency to challenge Little Havana's dictation of America's Cuban policies has been President Obama.
      But with OBAMA now having been replaced as President by TRUMP, there is not a single person in the world, including the Miami denizens in Little Havana and in the U. S. Congress, that can deny that the above image by Carlos LaTuff LaTuff is how decent people the world over view the USA's unstoppable genocide against the island of Cuba.

Trump Blackmails USA-Cuba Baseball

While Trying to Overthrow Cuba!!
{First Posted: 2:42 A.M., Thursday, June 13th, 2019}
     The island of Cuba has long been a goldmine for baseball talent, like this current brilliant lefthander Alexis Rivero. But because since 1959 Miami/Little Havana Counter Revolutionary extremists have been able to virtually dictate America's Cuban policies to sate their revenge, economic, and political motives, Cuban baseball players have faced unique obstacles trying to reach the lucrative USA Major Leagues. They have had to defect to third countries and often be at the mercy of unscrupulous human traffickers. While many, many Cubans thrive in the Majors today, only Cubans are subject to the whims of often violent human traffickers who want a lion's share of the upfront bonuses and guaranteed salaries. Boston once signed a Cuban outfielder with a $72 million guaranteed bonus and he turned out to not be of Major League caliber, for example, but every penny was guaranteed. Earlier this year Major League baseball worked out a deal with Cuba's highly regarded pro league to avoid the goldmines for human traffickers and the torturous travails unique to Cuban players because...LONG AGO the Cuban Revolution overthrew the vile U.S.-backed Batista-Mafia dictatorship. All decent Cubans and Americans hailed the recent baseball agreement...but guess what? The Trump administration, totally at the mercy of Little Havana extremists like Senator Marco Rubio, blocked the deal...in other words, as with most of the USA's Cuban policies, the idiotic baseball blockage helped devious operatives such as the human traffickers and hurt everyone else. But such extreme Rubio-induced cruelty and insanity apparently has induced even the Batistiano/Little Havana-directed Trump to begin having second thoughts about allowing self-serving extremists to dictate all of America's insanely stupid and cruel Cuban policies. I'll explain.
     The Commissioner of Major League Baseball is Rob Manfred and it was he who negotiated the deal with Cuba to the dismay of the human traffickers and the profiteering illicit agents. Being a decent and sane man, Mr. Manfred was appalled when Rubio induced Trump to block the baseball agreement that everyone except a few self-serving extremists applauded.
      Lo 'n behold, Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred has just heard DIRECTLY face-to-face from President Trump. Now, apparently OVER-RULING Rubio's cruel insanity at least this one time, Trump offered Manfred a deal: Hey, Commissioner, if you promise to help me in persuading Cuba to stop supporting the Maduro regime in Venezuela, I'll reconsider blocking your agreement regarding Cuban baseball players. WOW!! I'LL BE DAMNED!! The Batistiano/Little Havana-directed President of the United States, Trump, has veered away from Rubio's cruel insanity and actually offered a compromise deal to Major League Baseball's boss Rob Manfred. AMAZING!!
     Now please take a moment and digest Trump's reconstituted baseball offer that will surely AND GREATLY please everyone except the human traffickers and...Little Havana heavyweights such as the startled Rubio, the sad-faced Diaz-Balart brothers, and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. HECK!! I'm more surprised than they are. Just think: A Republican President, Trump, has...just slightly...veered away from the Cuban dictates of the Little Havana stalwarts. Trump's anointment of Little Marco Rubio as the USA's Cuban dictator supposedly was based on Trump's belief that the Little Havana extremists in Miami could deliver to him ALL 29 of Florida's electoral votes heading into his 2020 re-election bid. If Trump's reconsidered baseball offer is a hint that some Trump loyalists are advising their boss against total capitulation to the Little Havana extremists, it might be a precursor to a few more Trumpion deviations from absolute Little Havana dictation on Cuban matters. But don't count on it. Here's why:
       Hiding behind the Superpower skirts of the USA with a Republican in the White House, Rubio has pointed a direct regime-change guarantee at Cuba's new President Miguel Diaz-Canel. In a DIRECT TWEET Rubio sent Diaz-Canel this three-word warning: "See you soon" in Spanish. The Tweet was sent by Rubio months ago {February} when Rubio was convinced his regime-change in Venezuela was imminent and his "See you soon" warning to Diaz-Canel meant "You are next." On his ubiquitous Twitter account, Rubio has also emblazoned the bloody Gaddafi images to remind the Rubio/Bolton-directed regime-changes in Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua can have or will have a Gaddafi-like ending for those three current leaders -- Diaz-Canel, Maduro, and Ortega.
       Above is Marco Rubio's "See you soon" Tweet to Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel. In the lower-left corner you can see it was sent at 5:06 PM on Feb. 23rd, 2019. The "Te vemos pronto" from Spanish to English is "See you soon."
      The very next day, as you can see above, Rubio Tweeted the very insensitive images of Libya's Gaddafi to remind the leaders in Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua that they can expect a USA-Trump-Bolton "Libya model ENDING." Of course, Venezuelan and Nicaraguan regime-changes are important to Rubio only because those two nations are tightly allied with Cuba.
     President Miguel Diaz-Canel in Cuba vs. Senator Marco Rubio in the USA on the surface appears to be a very uneven fight with a Republican in the White House. Yet, Diaz-Canel believes he has an edge because he feels he is supported by most Cubans while Counter Revolutionary extremists like Rubio, according to Diaz-Canel, are "not supported by very many Americans or even very many Cuban-Americans, and Rubio is supposed to be in a two-party democratic system."
     Indeed, by all indications on the island, President Diaz-Canel is strongly supported by most Cubans, and they know him well as the island's former Education Minister.      

      And like Rubio and Trump, President Miguel Diaz-Canel has a strong presence on Twitter. In fact, Diaz-Canel has worked closely with his friends at Google and other digital powers to make the Internet and Social Media available to Cubans all across the island.
     Cuba actually has very strong and sophisticated television and radio operations. The photo above shows President Diaz-Canel on the powerful "Round Table" prime-time television program. He appears often in media forums and he has ordered Cuban Ministers to do the same so they "can directly inform the people what you are doing on their behalf or what you are not doing for them."
    There is no indication that Cuba's post-Revolutionary President, Miguel Diaz-Canel, has been afraid of the direct threats hurled at him by Rubio and Bolton from the nearby USA superpower. In the quote above responding to a Rubio Tweet that infuriated him, Diaz-Canel was insisting that...nothing can destroy a revolution that is supported by the Cuban people {"...pueblo cubana"} In other words, he doesn't expect Rubio and Bolton to convince even Donald Trump to nuke Cuba...or even attempt another Bay of Pigs attack on the island ala the 1961 debacle.
    This recent photo illustrates why right-wing COUNTER-REVOLUTIONARY forces in the Superpower USA are still having a lot of trouble, 6+ decades later, recapturing the island of Cuba. There have always been enough Cubans on the island since 1959 willing to fight to the death to defend the Revolution. And the Counter Revolutionary zealots, many of them living in mansions and riding high-on-the-hog as politicians because of their money and their convenient economic and political alliances with the Republican Party financial pipelines, are much too well known as extremely biased and greedy Counter Revolutionaries...yes, the epitome of extremists. The photo above chronicles a continuation of that excess stupidity. It shows Marco Rubio in command as the Trump-anointed USA Cuban dictator and just to his left is co-dictator Mario Diaz-Balart. Arguably the best investigative journalist in Washington, Ken Silverstein, has penned the definitive bio of Rubio and it begins with this sentence: "Marco Rubio is head and shoulders above everyone else in Washington when it comes to corruption and chicanery." Of course, if you're from Miami or Newark, your Congressional incumbencies are not hindered by such depictions. And as for Mario Diaz-Balart, like Rubio he is a Little Havana superstar and his father Rafael was a key Minister in the Batista dictatorship before fleeing to Miami in 1959 and having plenty of resources to start the White Rose, the first paramilitary unit designed to recapture Cuba from U. S. soil. Such money and power directly from Batista's Cuba quickly overwhelmed and reshaped Miami in 1959 and in mid-2019 that remains the situation. As Trump's USA Cuban dictators, Marco and Mario were a bit too bold when all of a sudden anti-Cuban extreme war-mongers like Mike Pompeo, John Bolton, Elliott Abrams, and Mauricio Claver-Carone quickly took over leadership of the four most important positions in the U. S. government positioned to make war or other mischief on smaller nations -- namely CUBA first and foremost. In other words, the photo above highlights Marco and Mario as the most biased Counter Revolutionary operatives from Little Havana in Miami. If Trump had been smart enough to, in their place, or in the place of Pompeo, Bolton, Abrams, and Claver-Carone, to have installed somewhat lesser zealots to oversee the regime changes in Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua, the world's economic and military superpower, especially with a Republican as President and Commander-in-Chief, might ALREADY have executed its imperial dominance over Cuba as well as Cuba's main Latin American allies. But Marco and Mario...even with Pompeo, Bolton, Abrams, and Claver-Carone in those powerfully strategic places...likely won't recapture Cuba and, by trying, they MIGHT ignite a long-standing Latin American war or several nearby REVOLUTIONS that the USA doesn't need.
     Let's see? Trump is 2.5 years into his 4-year Presidency that, incredibly, was gifted to him by an extreme left-wing tilt of both the Democratic Party and the mainstream U. S. media. The photo above showed that Trump's presidency from the outset was controlled by Little Havana Counter Revolutionary zealots in Miami. Trump and his minions are not at all embarrassed by racing to Miami and making obscene promises while standing in front of the BRIGADA ASALTO 2506 banner, and that's the battle flag for the 1961 Cuban exile-CIA-USA attack on Cuba known as the Bay of Pigs, which turned out to be somewhat humiliating for everyone except for Castro and his Revolutionary rebels. So as you ponder the photo above, consider this: Does Trump -- who openly confesses his "love" for the likes of Summit Friend Kim in North Korea -- have a chance for re-election in 2020? Yes, he does. The Democratic Party and the Mainstream USA Media are more left-wing extremists heading into 2020 than they were heading into 2016. So please: Say a prayer for totally innocent Cubans on their vulnerable island but also don't forget to say another prayer for America's TWO-PARTY Democracy -- one controlled by Batistianos in Miami and Newark and the other one controlled by left-wing zealots in New York and California. {Make the PRAYERS heartfelt to help 11.4 million Cubans and 325 million Americans}.

USA's Cuban Dictators

Unchecked, Unconscionable!!
{Wednesday, June 12th, 2019}
     Norwegian Cruise Lines, headquartered in Miami, controls 8.7% of the worldwide cruise market. The Norwegian Sky and the Norwegian Sun were its two ships thriving on cruises to Cuba from Miami. But last week the Trump administration, which allows Cuba-exile extremists in Miami to dictate its Cuban policies, stopped all such cruises to Cuba in an urgent USA effort to strangle the Cuban economy and starve Cubans on the island to please well-heeled Cuban-exiles in Miami and in the U. S. Congress. Thus Norwegian this week -- June 10, 2019 -- announced that its two Cuban cruise ships -- the Sky and the Sun -- will now be diverted to the Bahamas with new introductory prices of $169 for 3-to-5-day cruises.
       Carnival Cruise Line had a very popular Miami-to-Cuba sailing but it is being sued by Miami-exiles who claim their ancestors in Cuba owned Cuban ports prior to 1959 when the Cuban Revolution chased the leaders of the Batista-Mafia dictatorship to Miami. The Trump administration, totally controlled by extremists Miami-exiles, has opened up such lawsuits in U. S. courtrooms to highlight the two prime goals of Counter Revolutionary Miami-exiles -- which is FIRST to get rich and SECOND to starve the Cubans on the island.
    This week -- July 10th, 2019 -- The Virginian-Pilot newspaper in Norfolk, Virginia, used the above photo to explain how its huge world-renowned port is being harmed by the Miami extremists wiping out its popular cruises to Cuba. The article, written by Gordon Rago, said the Norfolk-to-Cuba sailings by the Carnival Sunrise had been extremely popular and that, of course, was why the Miami exiles stopped them. Gordon Rago wrote: "257,500 Americans, not counting those of Cuban origin, had visited Cuba from January through March. Over half -- 55% -- arrived by cruise ships." That article in Virginia's largest newspaper merely confirmed what already was evident -- the handful of Cuban extremists in the U. S. are totally willing to punish EVERYONE ELSE in order to dictate their self-serving starvation tactics against Cubans on the island.
     Just as The Virginian-Pilot pointed out on June 10-2019, starving Cubans on the island and enriching a handful of extremist Cubans in Miami and in the U. S. Congress is par-for-the-course whenever a Republican is in the White House, but never prior to Trump have the Counter Revolutionary extremists had 100% dictatorial control of America's Cuban policies. That abominable anti-Democracy situation not only punishes the vast majority of Americans and Cuban-Americans, but that majority also seems helpless in its efforts to correct the attempted genocide...and this past weekend a decent long-time U. S. Senator expressed the shame that a mere handful of Cuban-exiles can exert within the bowels of what once was the world's strongest and most respected Democracy. Such honors are now reserved for the Baltic and European democracies.
     At age 79 Vermont's Patrick Leahy fervently continues his decades-old fight in the United States Senate to bring sanity and decency to America's Cuban policies. This past weekend, on June 8-2019, Senator Leahy penned a scathing Op-Ed in the Miami Herald. The article is entitled: "AMERICANS AND CUBANS DESERVE BETTER." He called the Little Havana section of Miami dictating genocidal Cuban policies within the Trump administration both "dumb" and "embarrassing" for both the United States and Democracy. Senator Leahy said, "I would urge all Senators to not let the same old, worn out, Cold War, isolationist, fear mongering, failed arguments about Cuba stand in the way of common sense." Senator Leahy's top aide and longtime Foreign Policy adviser, Tim Rieser, not only backed up Mr. Leahy's words but confirmed that his "dumb" and "embarrassment" diatribes were aimed directly at Little Havana's embarrassing contribution to the U. S. Senate -- Marco Rubio. Tim Rieser said on behalf of Senator Leahy, "Trying to have an intelligent conversation about Cuba with the likes of Rubio is fruitless -- a complete waste of time."
       Every decent politician and journalist in Washington is well aware that President Trump's unholy anointment of "Little Marco" Rubio as America's Cuban dictator is, as Senator Leahy said, "dumb" and an "embarrassment." It is also known that Rubio is anxious to commit starvation-type genocide on totally innocent Cubans on the island while Trump is willing to condone it because he believes, in exchange for the genocide, that Rubio and Little Havana will deliver Florida's huge bundle of 29 electoral votes for Trump's 2020 RE-election.
      The lightweight Marco Rubio is lavishly supported by tons of right-wing dollars as well as a lavish publicity organization, and for the most part he gets a free ride even from the powerful left-wing media that is obsessed with impeaching Rubio's prime Cuban benefactor, President Trump. But, I believe, any "CLOSER LOOK" at Rubio's rise in Little Havana's Cuba-obsessed political swamp will reveal that Little Marco is "Head and shoulders above everyone else in Washington when it comes to corruption and chicanery." And, yes, America...this is the same Senator Rubio currently directing the USA's all-time most flagrant genocidal schemes against innocent Cuban women and children.
       Arguably the most respected investigative journalist in Washington, Ken Silverstein, began his long and minutely detailed bio of Little Marco Rubio with that definitive sentence: "Rubio is head and shoulders above everyone else in Washington when it comes to corruption and chicanery."
     Although the mainstream U. S. media is too afraid of Little Havana to inform Americans, there is a plethora of decent, democracy-loving Americans who are devoting their lives to bringing sanity and decency to America's Cuban policies. One of them is James Williams and his Engage Cuba Coalition. Mr. Williams, of course, is outraged over a lightweight like Rubio being allowed to dictate genocidal USA-backed tactics against innocent Cubans "to the undeniable detriment of most Americans and most Cuban-Americans." On his Twitter page, Mr. Williams wrote: "The Cuban people want better lives, and they don't need us to make their lives more difficult any more than the American people need to be told where they can and can't travel." A frequent visitor to Cuba, James Williams on Engage Cuba and YouTube posted the video below showing young Cuban entrepreneurs who flourished under the decent U. S. President Obama's policies, expressing in their own words how they are suffering under the Trump-Rubio genocidal policies"
 
Tap the video above to hear from young Rubio-targeted Cubans.

     On the pages of Rubio's hometown newspaper, the Miami Herald, four young Cuban female entrepreneurs penned a scathing article in which they made it plain that the lightweight Rubio is responsible for trying to starve their children. As you can see above, Niuris Higueras and Yamina Vicenta as well as Julia de la Rosa and Marla Recio BEGGED RUBIO TO MEET WITH THEM and at least hear their side of the equation. Of course, although they took their pleas to Washington, Rubio didn't have the decency to meet with them. And, yes, America...this is the Rubio currently being allowed to use the might of the U. S. government to try to starve, deprive, and make miserable the lives of Cuban mothers on their own island.


       This photo was taken in Havana yesterday -- June 9th, 2019. It shows Cuban children gathered together for a closely supervised fun occasion. In addition to the starvation-like tactics being engineered by Rubio, the mothers of these children are beside themselves about Rubio's claims that he is more concerned about these Cuban children than these Cuban mothers are. I happen to know the mother and the maternal grandparents of the 5-year-old girl in the pink dress in this photo. They are decent, wonderful people. As a democracy-loving American, I regret that I can't say the same about Rubio or anyone who supports his Cuban schemes.


     For the first time since 1962 the decent President Obama bravely arranged for such things as allowing cruise ships to dock in Cuba to benefit Cubans, Americans, and Cuban-Americans. Cubans like the driver-owner of this vintage 1950's American convertible began to make good incomes driving tourists around the island...and paladars {home restaurants} thrived as did home Bed & Breakfast operations. But greedy and revengeful miscreats, hiding behind the skirts of the U. S. government, now dictate that this decent, hard-working Cuban man can't make a living to support his family.

      Cubans on the island are considered the friendliest people in the world to American tourists. This year of 2019 the Madrid Tourism Board designated Cuba "THE SAFEST PLACE IN THE WORLD FOR TOURISTS," which is interesting considering how unsafe it appears for tourists these days in the Dominican Republic, Mexico, etc. Yet, the one nation the USA's lightweight Cuban dictator Rubio restricts Americans from visiting is a nation he himself has never visited but it is also a nation that Rubio feasts on to enhance his economic and political nests.
     Every U.S.-related cruise line, including the two that use Miami as their home port, want to be free to sail to Cuba. Every port from New Orleans to Florida and on up the east coast wants the freedom to sail to Cuba. Every Farm Bureau in the United States wants the freedom to sell food and other supplies to Cuba,  as opposed to participating in trying to starve totally innocent Cubans like the young girl above wrapped in an American flag as she welcomed an American cruise ship. Of course, in addition to starving innocent Cubans, Rubio doesn't want Americans to visit the island because if they were allowed to do so freely then people like Rubio wouldn't be so able to lie about Cubans on the island or about U.S.-Cuban relations. In other words, dictating Cuban laws and the Cuban narrative in the United States should be left up to decent people like the aforementioned Senator Leahy and James Williams, not the likes of Marco Rubio. The United States Democracy deserves that, and so does the Cuban girl standing on the famed Malecon seawall wrapped in the U. S. flag as she welcomed the U. S. ship into Havana Harbor.
       The fine-tuned, vintage 1950's American convertibles shown above were waiting as privately owned taxis for a U. S. cruise ship to dock. The tourists could have taken a scenic and educational ride or have been driven to one of the paladar-restaurants or Bed & Breakfast operations that flourished in private homes thanks to Obama. But now such livelihoods are  suffering because of the starvation tactics the Trump administration is allowing Little Marco to orchestrate. And even prior to Trump & Rubio, the USA's Cuban policies had shamed both America and Democracy.
