What Cuba Says About USA?

 Will USA's DEMOCRACY Ever Recover??

    As historically illustrated by the photo and graphic above, at least since 9:41 P. M. on February 15th, 1898 the U. S. democracy has been mauled by America's obsession with controlling Cuba, the Caribbean's largest and most beautiful island. That was the exact moment when the warship U. S. Maine exploded while it was docked in Havana Harbor, killing 261 U. S. sailors. For months prior to the disaster powerful elements within the U. S. government and in the U. S. media had loudly lobbied for the U. S. to go to war with Spain for the purpose of acquiring possession of Cuba. Spain, which had owned Cuba for many decades, was at the time in no position to win a war against the U. S. in the U.S.'s backyard...but the U. S. and the U. S. media quickly and conveniently blamed Spain for the explosion. Some blamed an accident but the U. S. itself confirmed it was caused by a military mine. So, it surely wasn't an accident. And, surely the Spanish government didn't do it. Thus, in all likelihood the zealots in the U. S. government and the U. S. media finally got their wish to obtain a pretext, or excuse, to declare war against Spain to finally secure U. S. control of Cuba. Well, what about the 261 young U. S. sailors who perished? Collateral damage? In any case, the pretext related to the explosion of the U. S. Maine began the U.S.'s quest to become an imperialist power because it was the excuse for the easy U. S. victory in the Spanish-American War in 1898 in Cuba. In addition to Cuba, the U. S. used the Spanish-American War to also gain control of Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Philippines from Spain...but the pretext for the war was Cuba!!!
       On February 15th, 1898, with Spain's permission, the warship USS Maine was docked in Havana Harbor although Spain was well aware that the U. S. was seeking a reason to go to war to acquire Cuba. At 9:41 P. M. that night a mine below the ship exploded, killing 261 U. S. sailors.
     The devastating explosion that destroyed the USS Maine in Havana Harbor quickly spawned the Battle Cry "REMEMBER THE MAINE" that fueled the excuse for the Spanish American War, fulfilling the fervent wishes of prime politicians and publishers in the U. S. who had longed sought an excuse to go to go with Spain to capture Cuba. But, as you see in the historical report below, the "Propaganda of the Spanish-American War" revealed the fact, and exposed the iron grip that greedy politicians and publishers had around the throat of the U. S. democracy...and, unfortunately, still do.
     If you take a moment to read the accurate historical report above, you will see that the very first sentence starts with these accurate words: "The Spanish-American War {April-August 1898} is considered to be both a turning point in the history of propaganda and the beginning of the practice of yellow journalism." Americans, of course, have been programmed not to believe such honest sentences related to U.S.-Cuban relations, proving once again that Cuba, the Caribbean island, says a lot more about the United States than is says about Cuba!! Of course, the politicians and publishers who were/are responsible are never held accountable for atrocities such as...Remember the Maine; stealing the lush Cuban port of Guantanamo Bay from Cuba in 1903; teaming with the MAFIA to support the brutal-thieving Batista dictatorship in Cuba in 1952; allowing the most feverish Batistianos chased out of Cuba by the Cuban Revolution in 1959 to create Little Havana in Miami; paying, training, and providing Batista exiles to lead an air-land-sea military attack on Cuba known as the Bay of Pigs in 1961; paying and allowing two vicious and self-declared Cuban exile terrorists named Posada & Bosch to spend decades killing and maiming totally innocent Cubans; etc.; etc.; etc.; etc. Prior to and apart from its age-old thirst to control and dominate Cuba, of course, the U. S. democracy had never been involved in such nefarious behavior!!! And now, go back and closely read the long third paragraph that explains how the nation's two most powerful newspaper publishers -- William Randolph Hearst and Joseph Pulitzer -- used their enormous power to salaciously and repetitiously use propaganda to guide the U. S. into seeking a pretext to provoke a war with Spain so the U. S. could finally get control of CUBA!!
      History correctly defines what Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst did to propel the U. S. into war with Spain so the U. S. could gain control of Cuba!! It was/is called "Yellow Journalism." And what Pulitzer and Hearst pioneered to drive the U. S. into war to get hold of Cuba in the 1890s is today called "Fake News." Unfortunately, "Fake News" -- what Pulitzer and Hearst invented as "Yellow Journalism" -- today saturates the mainstream U. S. media, especially regarding Cuba!!!
     This Editorial Cartoon shows Pulitzer on the left and Hearst on the right pushing mightily against other to see which of their powerful New York newspapers would lead the propaganda effort to get the U. S. to declare WAR against Spain so the U. S. could capture Cuba. Yes, history calls that tactic Yellow Journalism and, thus, Pulitzer and Hearst are attired in yellow clothing. The graphic above was appropriate during and after the Spanish-American War in 1898...but in 2021 such Yellow Journalism from the mainstream media is called "Fake News" and it particularly pertains to prime U. S. media promoting -- IN MAY OF 2021 -- the Biden administration's recapture of Cuba after allowing a little more time for Trump's genocide against Cuba to further soften up the Cuban people on the island. Of course, the pusillanimous and gutless generation of Americans who allowed Yellow Journalism regarding Cuba in 1898 is no different than the pusillanimous and gutless generation of Americans who are currently and sanctimoniously permitting U. S. genocide against Cubans on the island, a plague often promoted by mainstream Yellow Journalism/Fake News media outlets...such as the Washington Post!!
     Because the topic is Cuba, most of what Americans have been told about the 1898 Spanish-American War has been biased information. So, I suggest you take advantage {above} of the Age of Search Engines to learn about the historic truths regarding such things as...the Spanish-American War!!!
     The death knell of honest mainstream news in the U. S. media was sealed when the money-crazed U. S. government allowed even controversial but extremely wealthy individuals and corporations to purchase the nation's most powerful U. S. news organizations. Prior to that disaster, there were strict rules against such things, as well as monopolistic limitations. For example, Jeff Bezos was born to destitute teenage parents in Albuquerque, New Mexico, but when he was adopted at age four by a rich Cuban father he was on the path to Princeton University. He then used his father's money to start Amazon, and therefore today he is the richest person in the history of the entire world!!!
"What the hell....?"
      A parody or not, Jeff Bezos used some of his pocket change to buy the iconic Washington Post. As a liberal {My favorite President is Barack Obama and my least favorite is Donald Trump}, I was a lifetime very devoted reader of the Post...at least till it was purchased by Jeff Bezos and then transformed into nothing more and northing less than a richly funded extreme left-wing Fake News propaganda dispenser. Along with  corporate-owned extreme left-wing Fake News dispensers such as the NY Times, NBC, MSNBC, CBS, and ABC, the Washington Post specialized in Fake News to defeat Trump's reelection bid starting with the day Trump became President via the November-2016 election!!! While I am very much anti-Trump, I sincerely believe that the greatest threat to the U. S. democracy is the current status of the U. S. mainstream media giants, as named above, who now have collaborative and extreme and unlimited amounts of money that gives them the wherewithal to make the U. S. a one-party government -- namely, the extreme left-wing Democratic Party. I am a lifelong liberal Democrat but I believe the U. S. should forever remain at least a two-PARTY government. In other words, all aspects of the Republican Party must not be wiped out and all their backers should never be totally vilified and then demolished, which is now what the Jeff Bezos-owned Washington Post and the rest of the above-named media giants are in the process of doing. As far as Cuba is concerned, the Jeff Bezos-owned Washington Post allows the most vicious Counter Revolutionary Cubans to write prime anti-Cuban editorials, apparently because Jeff Bezos wants to please his very influential Cuban-American stepfather.
     In the 2020 Election that defeated President Trump and put President Biden in the White House, Americans are programmed not to believe that "FAKE NEWS & MISINFORMATION" -- as perpetrated by the ultra-rich and extreme left-wing media -- was responsible. But...it was. And so, the Yellow Journalism/Fake News phenomenon now saturates the mainstream U. S. media, and everyday Americans seem to understand that fact but most Americans don't feel they can correct it, although actually they may have a chance to address such issues in the 2022 Congressional elections.
      According to the U. S. government and according to the mainstream U. S. media, the only people who are permitted to discuss or influence Cuban policies in the United States are self-serving and extreme Counter Revolutionary zealots such...Marco Rubio, Bob Menendez, Mauricio Claver-Carone, the Diaz-Balart brothers, etc., etc. For damn sure, as far as the U. S. government and the mainstream U. S. media is concerned, Cubans on the island are never allowed to express their opinions. But, in the digital-social media-internet era we now know that Cubans on the island like Daily Perez Guillen do, in fact, have powerful opinions!!! As shown by her statement above, Daily believes that the U. S. Blockade against Cuban families is genocidal, illegal, and immoral. Daily is a journalist who supports the Cuban government and she says almost of all Cubans on the island feel that way. She points out that if that was not so the ultra-powerful exiles and the United States would have recaptured the island "long, long ago!!" Like most of the Cubans on the island, Daily is well educated. She maintains that the "the incredible amounts of money the U. S. government doles out to dissidents and would-be dissidents creates anti-Cuban protests and incidents but the everyday Cubans disdain such foreign money doing such wicked things." And Daily says, "The U. S. media claims Cubans on the island all want to get to Miami but the fact is, despite the genocide inflicted by the world's superpower, most of us will stay on the island and, if necessary, fight-to-the-death to keep the sovereignty that the Cuban Revolution finally gave us on January 1, 1959. Americans might not believe that but that is because they are lied to. But ask a smart and informed American, especially one who has been to Cuba, and ask them...uh, how in the heck has Revolutionary Cuba survived for over six decades? The reason....from the 1950s until today -- in May of 2021 -- there have always been enough Cubans on the island willing to fight to the death to make sure no foreign country -- or an entity like the U.S.-backed Mafia -- ever again controls us." Of course, Americans are programmed not to believe a thing that Daily Perez Guillen says...because she is a Cuban on the island and not a Cuban in the U. S. Congress or a Cuban in Little Havana USA/Miami. On the other hand, Daily Perez Guillen is well-educated, smart and she actually has opinions on the island. In that milieu, she has asked a pertinent question...you know, about "how in the heck has Revolutionary Cuba survived for over six decades?" And, uh...that's a good question considering that viciously determined Cuban exiles, backed by the strongest and richest nation in the world, have unsuccessfully tried for over six decades to recapture the pugnacious and much misunderstood island nation!!!! As a journalist in Cuba, working for the state, Daily says, "The internet and social media shows us that the U. S. media lies to its readers and viewers about Cuba and, I guess, about other things. We journalists in Cuba believe our readers and viewers and listeners are too smart to be lied to, so fake news is not our gig."

        The powerful international media giant El Pais, based in Madrid, echoes what Daily Perez Guillen said regarding Cubans on the island having opinions, including about fighting to the death to keep Little Havana and the U. S. from recapturing Havana. So, El Pais is a place Americans could get some real honest news about Cuba...as is the London-based BBC World News and the Paris-based Agence France-Presse {AFP}. For example, today -- May 7th, 2021 -- El Pais sent the above article around the world: "Cuba playing all or nothing amid urgent need for change." As you can see it is written by an honest journalist, Mauricio Vicent, who is stationed in Havana for El Pais. Such updated and honest journalism about Cuba by an international source is important.        As far as the U. S. Yellow Journalism/Fake News is concerned Carlos Lazo is a Cuban-American who doesn't exist...or at least doesn't have opinions. Yet, like most Cuban-Americans, he believes that the U. S. blockade of Cuban families on the island is illegal, immoral, and genocidal. Carlos Lazo is a Cuban-American professor in Seattle. He is famed for riding his bicycle, accompanied by some of his students, the 3,000 miles from Seattle to Washington to beg the U. S. Congress and the White House to end the Blockade against Cubans on the island. Carlos Lazo is ubiquitous on Facebook and other social media outlets, and he is a leader of anti-Embargo/Blockade street protests from Seattle to Washington to Tampa to Miami, etc. Of course, the mainstream U. S. is too yellow or too fake to even report that Cuban-Americans like Carlos Lazo exist. But...he does exist, and the mainstream U. S. media that caters to everything the Little Havana zealots maintain should have the courage and the integrity to tell about the decent and democracy-loving Carlos Lazo, a Cuban-American who now devotes his life to ending what he says is the cruel and genocidal U. S. Embargo/Blockade against innocent Cuban families on the island.

U.S. Terror Aimed at Cubans

 To Appease Rubio & Menendez!??!

     During the four months that Joe Biden has been the U. S. President, Democratic Senator Bob Menendez from New Jersey has been allowed to dictate self-serving genocide against Cuban families on the island. During the previous four years of Donald Trump's presidency Republican Senator Marco Rubio was allowed to dictate self-serving genocide against Cuban families on the island. So, nothing has changed.

        In other words, the Biden-Trump transition has not altered what the rest of the world considers legalized U. S. genocide against masses of Cuban families in a much-smaller island nation to appease a handful of controversial, but unchecked, individuals!! As of today -- April 29th, 2021 -- those are true facts although the incredibly biased mainstream media in the U. S. is too corrupt to report it and, therefore, a cowardly propagandized generation of Americans are too timid and ignorant to say anything about it. And, in other words, the US's money-crazed/two-party political system now controls both the Democrats and the Republicans when it comes to Cuba, meaning both parties are now dictated by Little Havana!!

      From Miami to all of America!!!
      And, YET -- as shown by the graphic and headline above from Bern, Switzerland -- the great democracies around the world strongly denounce the U. S. blockade against Cuban families on the island to appease the likes of Marco Rubio and Bob Menendez. The Swiss parliament, and others, are accusing the U. S. of taking advantage of the deadly COVID pandemic to further add pain for the innocent Cuban families on the island. In other words, Rubio & Menendez today remind some people and some governments of exactly what the U. S. allowed Fulgencio Batista and Lucky Luciano to do to the Cuban people in Cuba during the 1950's prior to the intervention of the Cuban Revolution on January 1, 1959. After all these many decades, the USA's Cuban policy has been aimed at enriching and empowering a handful of selected people!! At least sometime in 2021 it is time for the U. S. government, even during the most money-crazed cycle in American history, to finally show some mercy and pity on the masses of everyday Cuban people on their vulnerable island, an island that, unfortunately, has the U. S. as its neighbor.

World Protests USA's Cuban Genocide

  As A Pandemic Rages!!

     In this next to last weekend in April of 2021, the photo above shows two self-serving members of the U. S. Congress from Little Havana in Miami -- Mario Diaz-Balart and Maria Elvira Salazar -- holding yet another News Conference to announce they are sponsoring yet another congressional bill aimed at enhancing what many consider the genocide against Cuban families on the island to appease Little Havana Cuban-Americans in Miami. Mario Diaz-Balart's father was an important Minister in the U.S.-backed and Mafia-backed dictatorship in Cuba in the 1950s and then after the triumph of the Cuban Revolution on Jan. 1-1959 the father, Rafael Diaz-Balart, became one of the richest and most powerful Batistiano exiles in Miami, and in fact created the first paramilitary unit, The White Rose, to recapture Cuba. For the last 6+ decades, Little Havana has been unable to recapture Havana but for the past 3+ decades either Mario Diaz-Balart or his older brother, the Havana-born Lincoln Diaz-Balart, have represented Little Havana in the U. S. Congress...where they have been able to enact legal laws designed to benefit Little Havana while "starving, depriving, and making miserable" Cubans on the island. At this latest News Conference announcing the latest Little Havana bill in Congress, alongside Mario Diaz-Balart is Little Havana's latest edition to the U. S. Congress, Maria Elvira Salazar. Like the Diaz-Balart brothers, Salazar has been sent to Washington to seal Little Havana's agendas in the U. S. Congress. And the sad truth is, even with a Democratic administration ruling both Congress and the White House, there remains not enough courage or decency in Washington to resist this new Little Havana bill in Congress that Diaz-Balart and Salazar are shown touting at the News Conference above. And so, what if this new bill is clearly meant to continue to empower and enrich Little Havana Cubans while enhancing genocide against Havana Cubans?? NO PROBLEM!! In all likelihood, there is no longer enough courage or decency left in the money-crazed U. S. Congress to stop it!!
      Most people around the world believe that the U. S. EMBARGO/BLOCKADE against Cuba constitutes "Genocidio," the Spanish word for "Genocide." But, of course, Americans have been programmed since 1959 that all the "nice" Cubans in Little Havana have the right to commit genocide against the "bad" Cubans in Havana...and use the incomparable power and wealth of the U. S. government to do it!! Of course, back in 1952 that generation of Americans was programmed to accept that the brutal and thieving U.S.-backed and Mafia-backed Batista dictatorship was the best government in the whole world and therefore extreme U. S. dollars and tourism should 100% support it...just as, since 1959, U. S. dollars and legal bills in Congress must support Little Havana, at least until Little Havana recaptures Havana!!
    But, of course, if this generation of Americans cared enough about their Democracy and about innocent people in Cuba, they might have the courage to read the article depicted above from April 24th, 2021...TODAY. It shows that this week in April of 2021 that cities all the world, as usual, are loudly protesting what they consider the U. S. genocide against Cuban families on the island to appease, enrich, and empower a few families in Little Havana.
    Now, IF I MAY, let's revisit that powerful News Conference in which Little Havana zealots in Congress -- Mario Diaz-Balart and Maria Elvira Salazar -- were this week touting Little Havana's latest Congressional bill designed to appease Little Havana regardless of whether the rest of the world considers it mostly just more genocide aimed at innocent Cuban families on the island. Of course, the Little Havana influence in Washington is now such that the U. S. democracy is now void of a mainstream News Media that has the guts or decency to ask the likes of Diaz-Balart or Salazar if they have any regard at all about Cuban families on the island!!
    This photo this weekend -- April 24, 2021 -- shows a protest in Italy against the genocidal U. S. Blockade against masses of everyday families in Cuba. As the aforementioned article depicted above showed, there are similar protests taking place today in cities all around the world!! Yet, the U. S. government, the U. S. media, and the U. S. people are supposed to believe this is not happening. OF COURSE, the American people and the American media are programmed to loudly denounce a China or a Russia if there might be a hint that those powers are committing genocide against masses of people in much smaller nations!!! But all the while all around the world TODAY, there are decent people protesting what they think is genocide being committed by the Superpower United States against masses of everyday families in a much smaller country, namely the island of Cuba!! It is therefore shocking to billions around the world that the U. S. democracy is either unwilling or unable to do anything about it!!!
THE POINT I MAKE IS THIS:
     In the United States of America in 1952 a few bad but unchecked politicians were allowed to align the world's greatest and strongest Democracy with the Mafia to support, strictly for greedy purposes, the brutal Batista dictatorship in Cuba. Since 1959, after the Cuban Revolution incredibly defeated the Batista dictatorship, Little Havana-USA, headquartered in Miami, is today increasingly unchecked within the bowels of the U. S. democracy because greedy {and revengeful} people predicate and frame the USA's dictation of Cuban Policies, which much of the world considers GENOCIDE against innocent and vulnerable masses of people in a much smaller nation, Cuba.
     The photo above shows precious children in Havana that are fiercely loved and fiercely protected by their parents and grand-parents, which means three generations of Cubans on the island that have faced genocidio to appease, enrich, or empower a few Cubans and their sycophants based in Little Havana and in the U. S. Congress and in the U. S. White House. Americans are told that the perpetrators on U. S. soil are the "good guys." I am a democracy-loving American and I have been to Cuba, and I sincerely believe that the real "good guys" are the parents and the grandparents who are forced to protect children like these from the genocide that has been aimed at them from a far larger nearby nation for 6+ decades. And now in these final days in the month of APRIL-2021 it seems that the greed and the genocide keeps getting stronger and stronger in both Little Havana and, unfortunately, in Washington!!! Ponder that, if you will, as you gaze with unbiased and kind eyes back up at the photo of the Cuban children in the above photo.

Biden ALSO Sells Cuba to Highest Bidders

 President Biden Mirrors Trump's Genocide!!

     During the November 3rd-2020 U. S. presidential election, it would actually have been correct to say that approximately 11 million of the 11.2 million people in Cuba were praying that the Democrat Joe Biden would replace the Republican Donald Trump as President of the United States, the Superpower nation right above Cuba's northern border. While the reason for that was and is extremely simple, it should be explained again because never has the U. S. democracy leveled with the American people about its centuries-old and greed-fueled obsession with the Caribbean's largest island. SO YET AGAIN, allow me to explain why, on Nov. 3rd-2020, almost every Cuban on the island literally prayed for Biden to beat Trump. The simple but correct answer is this:
         In America's two-party political system, every Republican president since the 1950s...especially the three Bush {father & son} presidencies and the one-term Trump presidency...have been massively aligned politically and economically with the Batista rule in Havana-Cuba {1952-1959} and then with the Batistiano rule in Little Havana-Miami from January-1959 till April-2021. Only benefactors or propagandized idiots will dispute that fact. While this existed within the bowels of the U. S. democracy since 1952, Democratic U. S. presidents, especially during Barack Obama's two-terms {2009-2017} as President, offered some decent overtures to Cuba, especially easing the genocidal Embargo/Blockade against masses of Cuban families that have existed with it since 1962. But in the two-party U. S. political system, during this entire period, the Republican Party, even during Democratic presidencies, usually held enough power in Congress to rein-in much, or at least some, of the Republican greed and genocide related to Cuba.
       But, uniquely, since Biden the Democrat defeated Trump the Republican on Nov. 3rd-2020, the Democrats have essentially created a one-party U. S. political system...meaning that they now control the White House, the Senate, and the House of Representatives. That evolved when Biden captured the White House and the Democrats also swept the two Senatorial seats from the state of Georgia. Thus, now the Democrats and Biden now have a one-party U. S. political system and...moreover...they plan to perpetuate it by...AMONG OTHER THINGS...increasing the Supreme Court from 9 to 13 members, get four more assured Democratic votes in the Senate by making Puerto Rico and Washington-DC as states, etc., etc.
        However, although having both the desire and the means to create in perpetuity a one-party U. S. nation, the extreme left-wing zealotry of the Democratic Party and the main corporate-owned mainstream media are also will likely create a backlash against their extreme left-wing tactics. For example, the current left-wing zealots leading the Democratic Party and the Mainstream Media have a firm and so far unchecked desire to crush white Americans and elevate brown and black Americans. That desire, simply, is fueled by the belief that non-elite white Americans and white immigrants might vote for Republicans while brown-black Americans and immigrants would vote for Democrats. Thus, crushing and eviscerating non-elite whites might well secure the Democrats' one-party rule in the short run but not for perpetuity. By 2022 the blatant discrimination by Democrats against non-elite whites, which are still a very large contingency at least numerically, will in 2022 probably produce a backlash against the Dems in the Congressional elections and then in the 2024 presidential election. Extremists in either Party usually create resounding backlashes, and the current Democratic Party and the Mainstream Media are now the most extremist entities in the annals of the United States.
      Meanwhile, in the real America...in the so-called Boondocks...Joe Biden, the Democrats' President, is well-known as an over-aged, over-the-hill dinosaur who has probably been 50 years too long in Washington already!! It is no secret that President Biden is a puppet with all of his strings...all of them...being manipulated by only extremists in his administration, in Congress, and in the MAINSTREAM MEDIA. He thus has no one else to represent or answer to, just the extremists.
    Now please understand, this forum and this article is coming from a normal, non-elite, democracy-loving, average, liberal American whose favorite President is Obama and my least favorite among all 46 presidents is Trump, mainly for his extreme genocide against Cuba solely to win, successfully, Florida's 29 Electoral Votes that he considered crucial to his 2020 reelection. But in this current milieu, I believe the extreme left-wing control of the Democratic Party and the corporate-dominated Mainstream Media now constitutes the biggest and surely the biggest-funded threat to the U. S. democracy than anything that has ever threatened it since 1776.
        And with the above disclosure, I suggest you not depend on the Mainstream Media nor the now propaganda-obsessed Democratic Party when it comes to prime facets about U. S. policy. Thus, the age-old targeting of the island nation of Cuba is within the scope of America's one-party system that, more than ever, is extremely partisan and money-driven. Therefore, the Biden-led administration that is clearly led by puppets he has no control over is a rare Democratic administration that takes its entire Cuban policy from only self-serving Little Havana-schooled and Batistiano-dictated extremists from Miami and Newark who are in control of the Cuban policies in the U. S. Congress and the White House. The liberal U. S. media, which once was sympathetic to the plight of Cubans on the island, now is an extreme left-wing media that is only concerned to maintaining the USA as a one-party political system, and now this edition of Democratic control is willing to sacrifice Cuba and everything else to facilitate its extreme left-wing agendas.
         Thus, on a daily basis now, it is now revealed that those fervent prayers of 11 million of Cuba's 11.2 million people that hoped Biden would beat Trump in the 2020 U. S. presidential election were all in vain!! Today, April 21-2021, for example, this was the glaring Headline and first two paragraphs of a major article in the powerful BLOOMBERG NEWS Business News:
       In other words, if you read the totality of the above Bloomberg News article on April 21st, 2021, or anything else in the mainstream U. S. media, you will learn that the new Biden presidency is no better than then the genocidal Trump administration when it comes to the buzzards feasting on the assumed carcass of Cuba...just as many of the richest Americans and richest U. S. corporations merrily feasted on the wholesale rape and robbery of Cuba during the U.S.-backed Batista-Mafia dictatorship in Cuba from 1952 until 1959. Of course, the Biden administration, to further its other agendas, is helping companies to continue to reap rewards from frisking Cuba while, of course, also trying to literally starve, deprive, and make miserable the innocent Cuban families on the island while doing so...and further use the COVID-19 pandemic to expand tightening the screws on vulnerable masses of people in a much smaller nation. Of course, in the former two-party U. S. political system the American people were allowed to have the guts to call such things "GENOCIDE!!" But no more. Not when the genocide is legalized by the U. S. White House and the U. S. Congress. The lies and the cowardice, of course, began back in 1952 when the American people were propagandized into believing that "It was a wonderful thing that the U. S. democracy did in 1952 when it teamed with the top echelon of the Mafia to support the brutal/thieving Batista regime in Cuba so rich U. S. businessmen and their companies could partake in the whole rape and robbery of the lush Caribbean nation." Of course, if you are an American and you have the courage to FAST-FORWARD to April of 2021 it is not HEALTHY for you to state such facts loudly, so please be advised.
In other words:
Little Havana hasn't 
recaptured Havana yet,
but it has captured
the United States!!!

Cuban Congress Promotes Diaz-Canel

President Is Now Secretary of Cuba!!! 

     Today -- April 19th, 2021 -- Miguel Diaz-Canel, the President of Cuba since April of 2018, is shown above accepting his new role as the Secretary of the ruling Communist Party. As Secretary he replaces Raul Castro, who is retiring from his last official position in the Revolutionary government. Raul Castro turns 90-years-old in June and he appeared healthy and vigorous during his speeches this week during the Congress that named Miguel Diaz-Canel as his successor. Raul Castro's brother Fidel died at age 90 in 2016. Thus, as of today, there is now -- for the first time since JANUARY 1st OF 1959 -- no one named Castro at the head of the Cuban government!!!
     As both the President and Secretary of Cuba, Miguel Diaz-Canel starting today, has total control of the island's top political apparatuses. He was born on April 20, 1960, in the city of Santa Clara. Therefore, he was born after the triumph of the Cuban Revolution that ousted the U.S.-backed and Mafia-backed Batista dictatorship on January 1, 1959. As President of Cuba since 2018 and now as Secretary as of  TODAY {April 19th, 2021}, the task for Miguel Diaz-Canel is daunting. The continuing {since 1962} and excruciatingly genocidal U. S. Embargo/Blockade is now coupled with a devastating COVID-19 pandemic. One thing that will continue to work in Miguel Diaz-Canel's favor is the basic fact that he is well respected and loved by a strong majority of Cuba's 11.2 million people; and they know him very well, starting during his time as the island's very successful Minister of Education.
        Having been born on April 20th, 1960, Miguel Diaz-Canel's 61st BIRTHDAY is tomorrow!!!
     As he presided over Cuba's 8th Congress this week Raul Castro appeared strong with a vibrant voice. He turns 90 on June 3rd, 2021. He chose today -- April 19th, 2021 -- as the day he announced his retirement official. It is presumed that he chose April 19th because on April 19, 1961, Revolutionary Cuba registered a scathing victory at the Bay of Pigs, thwarting an air-land-and-sea attack from the United States and by Cuban exiles trained at Fort Benning, Georgia, and in Nicaragua, which was led then by the U.S.-backed Somoza dictatorship.
    During Cuba's Revolutionary War {1953-1959} and afterward in Revolutionary Cuba, Raul Castro was always at his more famous brother's side, right until the day Fidel died at age 90 on November 25th, 2016. Since then, Raul has made sure that Fidel remains the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution. And now, after Raul's retirement today, his successor Miguel Diaz-Canel will be expected to do the same.
Raul Castro and Miguel Diaz-Canel.
     This is a definitive photo taken today -- April 19th, 2021 -- at the 8th Congress in Havana. It show the delegates watching a huge graphic of Fidel Castro leaping from a tank to lead the front-line defense of his Cuban Revolution at the Bay of Pigs in April of 1961. The sensational Cuban victory at the Bay of Pigs was crowned on April 19th, 1961...exactly 60 years ago today. The Bay of Pigs for the ages also has crowned Fidel Castro's historical legacy as the forever leader of Revolutionary Cuba, at least until or IF the U. S., namely Little Havana in Miami, regains control of Cuba.
   The emphasis today of the image of Fidel Castro's leap onto the frontlines at the Bay of Pigs is a reminder that it, FOR ALL TIMES as far as Cuba is concerned, merely confirms that Fidel Castro will always be the leader of Revolutionary Cuba. Contrary to what is reported in Miami and Washington to this day, the majority of today's 11.2 million Cubans on the island agree with that depiction.
     This is the new absolute, undisputed non-Castro leader of Cuba, Miguel Diaz-Canel, saluting with balled fist today -- April 19th, 2021 -- as he stares as the image of Fidel Castro leaping from that tank 60 YEARS AGO at the historic Bay of Pigs frontlines. Yes, as far as Miguel Diaz-Canel is concerned, Revolutionary Cuba will always be Fidel Castro's Cuba. And that is the significance of today's important developments in Cuba today!!
And therefore,
as of April 19-2021,
the three images above
represent Cuba!!!
