Biden Urged to End "Cruel" Cuba Policy

 But Powerful People Profit From It!!

{So...Biden Can't Do Much About It!!}

      The Reuters News Agency is the best News Agency in the world and Sarah Marsh is one of four world-class journalists that Reuters has in its bureau in Havana. Reuters is based in London, which means that Sarah Marsh, unlike U.S.-based journalists, has the freedom and courage to write truthful, unbiased articles about Cuba. This was the last headline and opening words about Sarah Marsh's last Reuters article about Cuba this week:
       Note, if you will, that the headline starts by explaining that it is: "Exclusive: U. S. House Democrats urge Biden to revert to Obama-era Cuba detente." Yes, it is exclusive because, apparently, Sarah Marsh is aware that such news from Washington that might be considered a positive related to Cuba is something that the mainstream U. S. media simply normally does not have the integrity nor courage to report. But then, on behalf of Reuters, Sarah Marsh starts her article with these truthful and newsworthy words: Eighty U. S. House of Representatives Democrats urged President Joe Biden on Tuesday to repeal Donald Trump's 'cruel' sanctions on Cuba and renew engagement, an early sign of support in Congress for easing the clamp-down..."
     Another unbiased and newsworthy article from Reuters from Havana, written by Nelson Acosta and Sarah Marsh, was published on November 4th, it is still circulating around the world today. The headline as shown above is: "Cuba starts late Stage Trials of COVID-19 vaccine candidate in Havana." The first paragraph, as shown above, is a useful and truthful update of information that Americans, along with the rest of the world, might find interesting: "Cuba has begun late stage trials of its most advanced experimental COVID-19 vaccine, edging closer to a potential home-grown inoculation that could help the Caribbean island nation contain infections and ease its economic crisis."
    Cuba's most exciting of the five COVID-19 vaccines it is producing is Soberana 02, which is considered almost ready to be massively produced and has excited many countries, not just Cubans in Cuba.
    Writing from Havana for the great London-based REUTERS NEWS AGENCY, Sarah Marsh has the freedom to write the truth about Cuban issues...whether or not they are negative or positive news items about Cuba or something in between. Unfortunately, that is generally not allowed in the United States of America. And as a Democracy-loving American, I am ashamed that obvious fact doesn't shame more Americans.
     In other words, if and when there is BREAKING NEWS related to Cuba, the mainstream U. S. news media is the last place Americans can depend on for the honest truth. So please, rely on the London-based Reuters News Agency if, by chance, you are interested in Cuba or U.S.-Cuban relations.

Cuba In the NEW Biden Era

 Better Than The Trump Era????

     Every presidential transition in the United States since the 1950's has probably been more important to Cubans on the island than they have been to Cuban-Americans and other Americans in the United States. That is simply because Cubans on the island consider such transitions in Washington to be LIFE-or-DEATH matters to them. A Republican president, they have come to believe, will try to starve or kill them. A Democratic president, they believe, might not starve or kill them but even they will not allow them to thrive unless they surrender their sovereignty to a foreign superpower. Take, for example, the transition depicted above on January 20th-2017 that had the Republican President Donald Trump replacing the Democratic President Barack Obama. The decent Obama presidency once from 2009 till 2017 even visited Cuba to tell the Cubans they "had nothing more to fear from the United States." And Obama wasn't lying; he actually tried his best to normalize relations with Cuba. That all ended on Jan. 20-2017 when Trump, totally dictated to by Little Havana extremists named Rubio, Claver-Carone, Ros-Lehtinen, Diaz-Balart, etc. -- with no concern whatsoever with what 11 million Cubans on the island or the other 330 million Americans thought about U.S.-Cuban relations. And thus, to put it correctly if succinctly, during its entire four years of the Trump presidency it tried its damnest to starve the 11 million Cubans on the island so they would meekly turn Havana back over to Little Havana for the first time in over six decades. But, somehow for Trump's four years, the stubborn and pugnacious Cubans on the island still resisted that demand from the strongest and richest nation in the world, its superpower neighbor, probably because of generational memories and recollections in Cuba of the sheer brutality of the U.S.-backed Batista-MAFIA dictatorship in the 1950's, which ended only with the monumental victory of the Cuban Revolution on January 1, 1959.
     And that preamble brings us up to the January 20th-2021 transition that saw the Democrat Joe Biden replace the Republican Donald Trump as the President of the United States. I can attest, judging from their ubiquitous Social Media internet opinions, that just about every Cuban on the island prayed that Biden would beat Trump, which happened in a heated, money-mired, and controversial election that was probably decided by extreme amounts of left-wing money from ultra-billionaire individuals and corporations. But Cubans on the island believed that any Democratic president would be better for them than any Republican president, and their prayers for Biden were answered!!! While Cubans on the island knew Trump had been 100% guided only by the few very extremist Cuban-Americans as opposed to the majority of more decent Cuban-Americans, they knew that four more years of TRUMP might have spelled another Little Havana-inspired Batistiano-like rule on their island. Yet, in the first few weeks of the Biden administration, as I predicted in this forum before and after January 20th-2021, have not much changed America's long-standing monopolistic and imperialist aspirations to control and dominate Cuba. I'll explain.
     Above are the first three paragraphs of a major article this week by Politico, a prime political journalistic source in Washington. It shows that, even with a Democratic U. S. president in office, the incomparable influence of the USA, the world's top financial and military power, can force even Cuba's best democratic friends to cease their efforts to denounce the ageless and genocidal U. S. blockade of Cuba. The words above shows that the 27 EU nations that normally oppose genocide don't apply that principle to Cuba because the EU must bow to the USA's incomparable economic and military international influence. Politico pointed out that the EU has rudely summoned its Ambassador to Cuba, Alberto Navarro, to return to Brussels and explain why he signed off on a letter to President Biden that begged Biden to end or at least soften the ageless Embargo/Blockade that mostly assaults totally innocent Cuban families on the island to appease a handful of mean-minded Cubans in Little Havana/Miami and in CONGRESS. As you can see in the last sentence above from the Politico article, the letter that Ambassador Navarro signed that went to President Biden urged him to "stop being a hostile neighbor to Cuba and stop interfering in our {the EU's} domestic affairs." In other words, according to the letter, the EU's Ambassador to Cuba, Mr. Navarro, not only wanted the U. S. to stop its genocide against innocent Cuban families but it also didn't want to have to capitulate to the U.S.'s usurpation of the EU's freedom to make its own judgments, such as those concerning Cuba.
      This is Josep Borrell, the Foreign Policy Chief of the EU nations. Borrell is the man who ordered the EU's Ambassador to Cuba, Alberto Navarro, to Brussels to rebuke him for having the audacity to sign a letter that was sent to U. S. President Joe Biden requesting that the U. S. at least soften the U. S. genocide against innocent Cuban families that has been in place since 1962.
     Interestingly enough, study the photo above and you will see that the EU's Foreign Minister Josep Borrell a few days ago was in Moscow meeting with Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who is shown on the left giving Borrell some advice. Lavrov, in front of photographers and videographers, told Borrell, "The European Union needs to try to stop or at least soften the U. S. blockade against the people of Cuba." And Borrell replied, We will. We surely will." But that was the very same Borrell, a few days later, who sharply reprimanded the EU's Ambassador to Cuba, Alberto Navarro, for signing a letter that begged for the new U. S. President, Biden, to soften the U. S. genocide against Cuban families. In other words, Little Havana's iron-grip on the USA's Cuban policies is strong enough, even with a Democrat as the President in Washington, to blunt the 27-nation EU's tendencies to oppose the U. S. Embargo/Blockade of Cuban families.
  Since 1962 generations of timid and propagandized Americans have been warned to not feel ashamed of this internationally ubiquitous Carlos LaTuff image of the indecent U. S. Embargo of Cuba. And, incredibly, Americans have been educated within the bowels of their Democracy to believe that the worldwide image of the United States depicted above is to be accepted and supported. Of course, such propaganda always depends on the lies that the U.S.-backed Batista-Mafia rule in Cuba in the 1950's was a great Democracy while everything about Revolutionary rule of Cuba since 1959 has been wrong and despicable.
           Of course, since 1959 Little Havana-dictated propaganda in the U. S. has preached that: "THE MOB DID NOT 'RUN' PRE-CASTRO CUBA!" Of course, ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!!
     Surely in 1952 the Dulles brothers -- the ultra-powerful Secretary of State & CIA Director in the Eisenhower administration -- well knew that the top echelon of the Mafia, Lucky Luciano & Meyer Lansky, dominated Batista's brutal and thieving dictatorship in the 1950's, but Americans are still not supposed to admit that. America today is simply not the great Democracy it was prior to 1952, the year American citizens meekly permitted the U.S. to team with the Mafia to support the brutal Batista dictatorship in Cuba so rich Americans could partake in the wholesale robbery of the lush island nation.
     Since January of 1959 when the Cuban Revolution chased the Batista mob to U. S. soil, Miami in Florida and Newark in New Jersey have produced the politicians that have dictated the USA's Cuban policies. On the first day of March-2021 U. S. Senator Bob Menendez, a controversial Democrat from Newark, and U. S. Senator Marco Rubio, a controversial Republican from Miami, effectively dictate America's Cuban policies. And that is true whether a Democrat or a Republican is the President of the United States.
    Every well-known Counter Revolutionary Cuban in Cuba or in the U. S. well knows -- just as Yoani Sanchez in Cuba knows -- knows that a trip to the U. S. Senate to meet with Rubio and Menendez {as shown above} is the way to acquire the wherewithal to vastly enlarge their Counter Revolutionary work once they return to Cuba.
     The truly extraordinary amount of U. S. dollars that are showered on dissidents such as Yoani Sanchez are staggering.
     But, of course, the incredibly weakened mainstream U. S. media is not courageous enough to report on the staggering amount of U. S. tax-dollars devoted to dissidents who work powerfully to derail Cuba's revolutionary government. So, just about the only source reporting on the astronomical U. S. dollars devoted to Cuban dissident projects is the great unbiased journalist and Florida professor Tracey Eaton. His must-read blog CUBA MONEY PROJECT regularly reports such detailed facts, based on Freedom of Information laws. Thus, that blog is the way to see details, names, and charts revealing the extreme piggybank of exact U. S. tax-dollars regularly doled out to Cuban dissidents.
    And I this very day on March1st, 2021, the USA's lucrative Cuban policies designed to overthrow Revolutionary Cuba is based on the lie that "The mob didn't rule Cuba prior to the Cuban Revolution's triumph on January 1, 1959!!!" So, of course, Americans today are not supposed to read superb books like the one above nor are Americans today supposed to read Tracey Eaton's CUBA MONEY PROJECT blog. In other words, ignorant Americans are not supposed to know how many of their tax-dollars go to dissidents who are supposed to help undermine & overthrow Cuba!!
     While Cuba's superpower neighbor, the U. S., is engaged in its decades-long efforts to starve the Cuban economy and therefore also starve Cuban families, the largest and most beautiful island in the Caribbean island nation would also likely be the Caribbean's most prosperous nation if it was allowed to not be dominated BY ITS SUPERPOWER NEIGHBOR. For example, this past weekend the world's largest travel company, Tripadvisor, again listed Cuba's beaches among the greatest beaches in the WORLD even though the U. S. uses its incomparable power to keep Americans from visiting them and also trying to keep non-Americans from visiting them.
    On this last weekend of February of 2021 both Cuba and its northern superpower neighbor the United States are still battling the COVID-19 pandemic. With winter still roiling much of the U. S., many Americans crave beautiful beaches and Cuba is blessed with some of the most enticing beaches in the world, although the six-decade+ U. S. Embargo/Blockade against Cuba, of course, restricts Americans from going to Cuba because it might interfere with the U. S. policy of trying to starve Cuba's economy. The U. S., of course, also uses its incomparable power and influence to try to restrict all international tourism to Cuba. That, of course, was interesting this week when the world's largest travel website, Tripadvisor, listed Cuba's Cayo Santa Maria Beach {shown above} as the SECOND BEST BEACH IN THE ENTIRE WORLD.
      The image above is from the lobby of the 5-star Royalton Hotel on Cayo Santa Maria, which Tripadvisor, the world's largest travel website, listed as ONE OF THE WORLD'S SECOND BEST BEACH IN THE WHOLE WORLD.
     As we start into March of 2021, even with the Democratic Joe Biden having replaced the Republican Donald Trump as the President of the United States, a handful of rich and powerful Cuban Americans in Miami, Newark, and in Congress keep restricting Americans from visiting Cayo Santa Maria's world-class beach. In fact, the last time the U. S. government urged Americans to visit Cuba was during the 1950's when the U.S.-backed and Mafia-backed Batista dictatorship ruled the Caribbean's largest island brutally but lucratively as it craved tourists from the U.S., especially to gamble and to indulge in drugs and prostitution.
  After the Cuban Revolution chased the Batistianos to the U. S. in January of 1959, drastic U.S.-Batistiano efforts to recapture Cuba, including the Bay of Pigs military attack in April of 1961, proved unsuccessful and drastically increased the pugnacious island's prestige in the world. So, as shown above, since 1962 the U. S. has cruelly encircled the island of Cuba with a drastic economic Embargo designed to "starve, deprive, and make miserable" Cubans on the island to induce them to rise up and overthrow their Revolutionary government. As the world enters into the month of March of 2021, the cruel and shameless Embargo remains in place to appease a handful of unchecked and shameless Counter Revolutionaries in Miami, Newark, and Congress.
   Two vicious Counter Revolutionary Cuban-Americans in the U. S. Senate -- Marco Rubio, a Republican from Miami; and Bob Menendez, a Democrat from Newark -- will make sure the cruel, six-decade old Embargo endures. And unfortunately, in the two-party U. S. political system, when it comes to Cuba, the opinions of 11 million Cubans in Cuba and 330 million Americans in the U. S. don't matter...just the opinions of a handful of Cuban-American benefactors aligned with their political and economic sycophants. It, perhaps, could be admitted that the demise of the U. S. democracy began its downward spiral in 1952 when the United States of America teamed with the Mafia to support the brutal Batista dictatorship.
     It was 1952 when the United States, the world's most powerful and most beloved Democracy, teamed with the top echelon of the Mafia to support the brutal and thieving Batista dictatorship. That occurred when the U. S. decided that rich U. S. businessmen and companies needed to partake in the rape and robbery of the lush island, which they did from 1952 until the wee hours of January 1-1959 when Batista fled the island in his getaway airplane {landing first in the Dominican Republic, was led by another brutal U.S.-backed dictator, Rafael Trujillo. But, of course, many of the getaway money-stuffed planes, boats, and ships exiting Cuba starting at 3:00 A. M. on January 1-1959 ended up in nearby U. S. cities -- notably Miami and Newark. But, of course, it was Miami where Little Havana evolved as the capital of Batistiano USA...from 1959 till to this day.

The Journalist That Brands US Cuban Policy Criminal

 From 1952 Till 2021!!!!

     Born in 1968 in Rio de Janeiro, a Brazilian named Carlos LaTuff is the world's top Superstar when it comes to Editorial Cartoons. He also is courageous enough to ubiquitously tell the world that America's Cuban policies are criminal and immoral...and that has been so at least since 1952. That was the year that the United States, the world's most respected democracy, joined the top echelon of the Mafia to support the brutal and thieving Batista dictatorSHIP in Cuba. LaTuff's rationale concludes that the USA's logic was that, in such a dictatorSHIP, many already rich U. S. businessmen and companies could partake in the wholesale rape and robbery of the vulnerable and helpless nation, which was/is the largest and arguably the most beautiful island in the Caribbean. LaTuff is among the unbiased and brave journalists who also believes that Batista, the Mafiosi, and the USA were so confident, as well as so enthralled with their largess, that they stupidly failed to at least toss some crumbs to the majority Cuban peasants. And beyond that, LaTuff seems aware that, as historically documented by countless photos that many of us have published, the mass street marches by outraged Cuban mothers highlighted posters that stated that Batista routinely murdered their children as warnings to the non-Batistiano Cubans not to dissent or even ask for any educational or health help from the dictatorSHIP. Those Mother Marches inspired what history calls the Cuban Revolution, which shocked the world on January 1, 1959, by overthrowing the U.S.-backed and Mafia-backed Batista dictatorSHIP. But starting in January of 1959 Little Havana in the heart of Miami-USA became a Cuban-powered sanctuary that has, incredibly, surpassed the Batista dictatorSHIP's own lucrative rewards on the island. Moreover, for going on seven decades now, Little Havana and the U. S. government have been engaged an out-out effort to overthrow Revolutionary Cuba, recapture the island, and...uh, you know, uh, "return" DEMOCRACY TO CUBA!!!! Well, uh...LaTuff to this day is even more astounded by Revolutionary Cuba's longevity than its astounding victory back on January 1, 1959. And he sincerely seems to believe that from at least 1952 till 2021 the United States policies regarding Cuba have been both criminal and immoral. In his brilliant international Editorial Cartoons, such as the four I depict below, the great Carlos Latuff has perhaps chronicled the best true portraits and the best documentations of America's shameless conduct regarding the Caribbean's largest island nation.
     Since 2009 when Carlos LaTuff first had this image published worldwide, billions of eyes have seen and studied it. It still shames democracy lovers around the world, but apparently still doesn't shame enough Americans. Therefore, this image best chronicles the world's view of the U. S. economic Embargo against Cuba. In 1962...after three years of assassination attempts, vicious terrorist attacks, and the April-1961 Bay of Pigs military attack HAD ALL FAILED to recapture Cuba...the U. S. began the Embargo that has lasted to this day in this year of 2021. The purpose of the Embargo, according to de-classified U. S. documents, was to starve, deprive, and make miserable the Cubans on the island to induce them to rise up and overthrow their Revolutionary government.
     As Carlos LaTuff understands, President Obama from 2009 till 2016 has been the only U. S. President to have the intelligence, the guts, and the decency to sincerely try to NORMALIZE RELATIONS WITH CUBA or to try to treat the masses of totally Cubans decently.
     But for sure Carlos LaTuff, as he showed with the gem shown above, realized that all of Obama's decency and sanity towards the Cuban people on the island ended the day Donald Trump, who was totally dictated to by Little Havana extremists, became the U. S. President in January of 2017. With the Editorial above, LaTuff was showing that the Trump presidency even took advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic to try to finally starve and wipe-out the Cubans on the island. But note...that LaTuff in the above Editorial shows the Cuban doctor in the white clothes to be the true hero as he tried to stand off the vicious genocidal intentions of the United States of America. And so, the great image above by LaTuff, shows that Cuba in 2021 is forced to battle both the USA & COVID-19 as Cubans are left to wonder if Trump's successor, President Biden, will ever end or even lesson the Embargo. LaTuff apparently believes that too many people in Little Havana and elsewhere are making too much money during the Embargo for any U. S. government to end it.
     Of all the Carlos LaTuff Editorial images, this one is said to be the one that has reached into the TOP TWO for worldwide views. It is LaTuff's way of reminding the world that a genocidal economic Embargo-Blockade by a powerful nation against a much-weaker nation impacts children the hardest. Thus this brilliant image by LaTuff of the little Cuban schoolgirl, gleefully and proudly carrying a Cuban flag while gleefully and proudly pounding on the head of the United States, sums up the USA's Embargo against Cuba since 1962. And folks, Carlos LaTuff will be the first to tell you that six+ decades is a LONG, LONG time. And I am brave enough to admit that I'm happy for LaTuff's little Cuban schoolgirl, and I also must admit that I'm very proud of her.

USA's Cuban Piggybank

 From the 1950's Till 2021!!!

         In this month of February-2021, the first full month of the new Biden administration in Washington, there has been a plethora of headlines such as the one depicted above, especially from the U. S. media aligned with the ultra-rich, ultra-powerful, and ultra-Counter Revolutionary Cuban zealots headquartered in Miami's Little Havana sector. Those media outlets include such entities as the Miami Herald, Miami's tax-funded piggybank Radio-TV Marti operation, and national powerhouses such as the Washington Post, which happens to be owned by Jeff Bezos who happens to be richest person in the history of the entire world and the adopted son of Cuba-born Miguel Bezos. For going on seven decades now, there have been predictions and expectations that the unchecked Little Havana zealots from Miami will recapture Cuba ANY DAY NOW!!! After all, the island of Cuba is a mere 90 miles or so away and Little Havana's quest is supported by the richest and strongest nation in the world and, additionally, it has the massive support of the U. S. treasury, the mainstream U. S. media, and the apathy of the 330 million severely propagandized Americans.
        In that milieu, in these closing days of February-2021, the Cuban leaders who control the financial and political apparatuses in Little Havana and the state of Florida have just completed a massive forum that ended with dire the post-Trump Biden presidency not to hamper their efforts to overthrow Cuba's revolutionary government...especially now that the genocidal policies of the Little Havana-dictated Trump presidency coupled with the COVID-19 pandemic has supposedly left Cuba totally vulnerable to being recaptured.
          Thus, even as soon as March-2021, Little Havana finally expects to again take control of Havana.
       Even Sarah Marsh's latest article from Havana seems to predict the eminent demise of Revolutionary Cuba by the time February-2021 turns into March-2021. That's important because Sarah is an excellent journalist that is part of the superb London-based Reuters bureau in Havana. This weekend Sarah reported on..."The anti-Cuba anthem featuring Gente de Zona goes viral and sparks Cuban fury. A group of Miami-based Cuban musicians including reggaet├│n duo Gente de Zona launched an impassioned anthem this week that has gone viral, sparking a furious state response." The song is entitled "Patria y Vida", which means, "Homeland and Life." It is meant to insult Fidel Castro's famous mantra "Patria o Muerte", which means "Homeland or Death." Indeed, powerfully funded and massively promoted, "Homeland and Life" has gone viral, including millions of views on You Tube. The "Patria y Vida" video on You Tube is below, and you can hear the entire song:
      The reaction to the video has apparently even convinced the great Reuters journalist Sarah Marsh in Havana that Little Havana in Miami will soon be back in control of the island. Here is what Sarah Marsh wrote this weekend:
      While even Sarah Marsh of Reuters, a good source from Cuba regarding how the Cuban people are accepting or fearing the U.S.-Cuban conundrum, now believes a reaction to the anti-Cuban song might signify that the last vestiges of the Cuban Revolutionary rule might finally be upon us, but don't believe it. Since January 1, 1959 when the Cuban Revolution booted the U.S.-backed & Mafia-backed Batista dictatorship from Havana-Cuba to Little Havana-USA, there have always, incredibly, been enough Cubans on the island to be willing to fight to the death to prolong the Revolution's grip on the island and resist the USA/Little Havana's attempts to overthrow it. For over six decades Americans who have not been to Cuba have been told that practically every Cuban on the island wants Little Havana & the U. S. to regain control of Cuba. For example, historians are aware that new President Kennedy in 1960 inherited the Bay of Pigs military attack from the Republican Eisenhower administration to recapture Cuba. Kennedy was famously told, "Don't worry, because when the Cuban people realize that the bombs are falling and the U. S. is attacking, they will quickly turn against Fidel Castro and support us." Of course, during the U.S.-Little Havana air-land-and-sea Bay of Pigs attack in April of 1961 that was a propaganda lie and Fidel Castro easily had more support than he needed to thwart the Bay of Pigs debacle. Historians also know that President Kennedy was told, "Don't worry, the moment Fidel Castro realizes that U. S. bombs are falling on Camp Colombia on the edge of Havana, he will race to his getaway airplane." Of course, Fidel was sleeping in revolutionary heroine Celia Sanchez's apartment in Havana when they heard the U. S. bombs beginning to fall on Camp Colombia, and at that moment Fidel began racing toward the southern coastal city of Trinidad and the Bay of Pigs where he and Celia believed the ground assault would land. Incredibly, the two lies President Kennedy were told are similar to the lies the American people have been told since April of 1961.
     Of course, since April of 1961 in the United States the pervasive  Counter Revolutionary propaganda has consistently denied much of U.S.-Cuban history, such as Fidel Castro having a getaway airplane ready in Havana, which he never did have. Thus, as shown above, he himself led the defense of Cuba at the Bay of Pigs in April of 1961. And never having a getaway airplane, Fidel Castro lived in Havana until he died of natural causes at age 90 in 2016.
           And truth be know, to this day in February of 2021 those of us who have been to Cuba know this fact: It is still Fidel Castro's Cuba and that will be true until or when the omnipotent Little Havana forces recapture Cuba. To most Cubans on the island the words "FIDEL SIEMPRE" truly mean "FIDEL ALWAYS."
         Therefore, even in February of 2021 when the aforementioned song mocked Fidel Castro's famous "Homeland or Death" mantra goes viral on You Tube and elsewhere, in the 7th decade since the triumph of the Cuban Revolution it is still Fidel Castro's Cuba. And that is so despite the fact that the determined Counter Revolutionaries in nearby Little Havana for all these years have been backed by the strongest nation and the richest nation in the history of the world. Therefore, if the triumph of the Cuban Revolution on January 1, 1959 shocked the world, its longevity has been even more SHOCKING!!! Study the images below, starting with the photo of the great and renowned journalist and Cuban expert Tracey Eaton, to understand and comprehend that, to this very day, a truly staggering amount of U. S. tax dollars are being devoted to overthrowing Cuba and enriching just about anyone who raises their hands and then convinces Little Havana and the U. S. government that they will help overthrow Cuba. The dollar amounts that the great Tracey Eaton obtains are via Freedom of Information searches and he details exact sums, names, etc., or explains the cases in which such information is hidden.

       And, of course, if you don't take time to consult Tracey Eaton's blog Cuba Money Project you will not get posted on the staggering amounts of absolute U. S. tax dollars devoted to Counter Revolutionary projects that have enriched dissidents and their efforts for decades. During the just-ended Trump administration the expensive BAZOOKA BLASTS aimed at Cuba reached new heights but even during the new Biden Administration the rich and often fanatically motivated Counter Revolutionary zealots in Little Havana this week let President Biden know that he must keep them in charge of the USA's extremely lucrative Cuban piggybank. Thus, the ubiquitous Headlines such as the one below, I believe, shame the United States democracy.
