Dictator Rubio and Cuba in 2021

 Surviving COVID-19 & U. S. Blockade!!!

      Carnival Cruise Lines has announced that it "is ready to resume its trips to Cuba, depending on the new policies on the island and the change of administrations from Trump-to-Biden in the White House."
      The CEO of Carnival Corporation, Arnold Donald, like many powerful business leaders in Miami and elsewhere in the USA, has longed for an opportunity to do business with Cuba. He told ON Cuba News, which has offices in both Miami and Havana and is a fair-minded and unbiased source of US-Cuba news, "We'll see what happens with the incoming administration." In other words, after the Joe Biden presidency in Washington has replaced the virulently anti-Cuban presidency of Donald Trump, Arnold Donald hopes his powerful cruise company can resume cruises to the nearby Caribbean island.
     Back in 2016 in the last year of the Obama presidency when Obama was normalizing relations with Cuba, Carnival's boss Arnold Donald proudly sent his Adonia cruise ship to Havana. As shown above, Cubans welcomed the arrival of the Adonia in Havana Harbor while Obama was the U. S. President.
     The head of Carnival Corporation, Arnold Donald, is not a lone wolf. He and most business executives from Miami to New Orleans to New York to Los Angeles would like the freedom to trade with Cuba -- the Caribbean's largest, most populated, and arguably its most beautiful and most appealing island nation. Mr. Arnold, in announcing his eagerness to send his cruise ships back to Cuba, said, "In our great American democracy, the leaders of our nation's top corporations should be allowed to do business with other nations unless there is a viable reason not to. And there is no viable reason that should stop us from doing business with Cuba, the nearby island nation that we and many Cuban-Americans want to have sane, decent relations with. Yes, as we were in 2016 when Obama was President, my company, Carnival, was eager to cruise people to Cuba then...and we are eager to do the same thing if the new Biden administration in Washington, and the health conditions, allow us to do so."
       Of course, most Cuban-Americans want decent relations with Cuba, especially businessmen like Manny Almira who runs the nearby Port of Palm Beach in Florida. Manny would love to do business and trade "to and from Cuba to help us on U. S. soil and to help Cuban families on the island a few miles away. Why in the hell is that simple relationship not permitted?"
     An ultra-powerful Cuban-American in Miami is Frank Del Rio, the ultra-rich leader of Norwegian Cruise Line. Yes, it is headquartered in Miami, not in Norway. Back in 2016 when President Barack Obama normalized relations with Cuba as much as he possibly could, Frank Del Rio actually cried when he was allowed to finally cruise one of his ships and its passengers to Cuba. Frank's tears gushed out when, at the front of his ship, the Port of Havana came into his sight.
     In the United States of America decent and powerful Cuban-American businessmen, like most of the other two million+ Cuban-Americans in the Miami area, don't have much say-so when it comes to the U. S. having decent relations with Cuba. That includes, as you can see above, Frank J. Del Rio, the CEO of the Miami-based Norwegian Cruise Line that longs to do business with Cuba.
     And that is because a handful of self-serving and not-so-decent Cuban-Americans such as Senator Marco Rubio, and a handful of others from Little Havana in the heart of Miami and in the heart of the U. S. Congress in Washington, dictate the U.S. Cuban piggybank and diaspora to suit themselves. Study the Rubio quote above and, if you are not afraid of Little Havana's propaganda, you will hopefully still have enough freedom to label it a blatant lie. When Rubio talks about a "BETTER DEAL FOR CUBA" he is only talking about a BETTER DEAL for himself and for others like him who for decades have been making lucrative and unchecked deals, both politically and financially, for themselves on the backs of masses of innocent Cubans on the island. To prove that point, I could list any of a million photographic examples, but permit me to list the photo and graphic below to make my point about Rubio.
     In 2016 near the end of Barack Obama's 8 years as President of the United States, the decent Obama had become the only President since the 1950s to have the guts and the decency to consider innocent Cubans on the island as opposed to helping rich Americans partake in the lucrative Mafiosi rape and robbery of Cuba. So, because of President Obama young Cuban mothers like those shown above were allowed to become entrepreneurs on the island, and soon they were opening thriving businesses because, if the U. S. would permit, Cuba would become a tourism jewel. But by 2017 when the Democrat Obama had been replaced by another Republican President, Donald Trump, Rubio...Little Havana's prime spokesman in the U. S. Congress...had been anointed Cuban dictator by Trump. Rubio immediately began dictating lucrative laws and appointments to benefit Little Havana while brutalizing and trying to starve Cubans on the island. Incredibly, Rubio's hometown newspaper, the Miami Herald, allowed four of the young entrepreneurial Cuban mothers to write a major and scathing article denouncing Rubio's genocide, and they used the opportunity to {correctly} accuse Rubio of trying to starve their young children by trying to stop the businesses they had started thanks to President Obama. Please Americans, take time and look above to read what these four Cuban mothers told Rubio: "We have repeatedly requested meetings with Senator Marco Rubio and his staff to share our knowledge and firsthand experiences...unfortunately, like administration officials, he has ignored our requests to meet."
     Meanwhile, his office itself regularly releases photos like the one above showing Senator Marco Rubio "meeting with Cuban dissidents." With massive concern with Little Havana Cubans and no concern for Havana Cubans, Rubio is able to use the power and wealth of the U. S. government to support/fund dissidents while trying to deprive, starve, and make miserable families in Cuba for the purpose of getting Cubans on the island to rise up and overthrow their Revolutionary government. While Americans are not supposed to admit it, "depriving, starving, and making miserable" were, according to declassified U. S. documents, the exact three reasons the U. S. government gave in 1962 to impose the economic Embargo against Cuba...after multiple assassinations and assassination attempts, massive terrorist attacks, and the 1961 Bay of Pigs military attack failed to recapture Cuba. Of course, now into the Year 2021, Rubio is convinced that he can do whatever he chooses to help dissidents overthrow the Revolutionary Cuban Government while, of course, engaging in what many observers consider to be genocide against Cuban families on the island. For sure, the four young Cuban entrepreneurial mothers -- Nueris Higueras, Yamina Vicenta, Julia de la Rosa, and Maria Recio -- are more decent, smarter, and better educated than the Little Havana-born & reared Rubio but Rubio is the one supported by the world's strongest and richest nation as well as by the cowardice of three successive generations of Americans who have been programmed to support or accept the U.S.-backed Batista rule in Havana in the 1950's that has been followed by the Batistiano rule in Little Havana since 1959. Rubio, of course, was spawned by the most extremist Counter Revolutionists in Little Havana and in the U. S. Congress -- led by Havana-born Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Havana-born Lincoln Diaz-Balart and his little brother Mario. Ros-Lehtinen & the Diaz-Balart brothers have, between them, served SIX DECADES in the U. S. CONGRESS. The Diaz-Balart brothers' father was a powerful Minister in Cuba's Batista dictatorship before fleeing the Cuban Revolution in January-1959 and quickly forming his Counter Revolutionary forces in Miami, which spawned Little Havana as well as spawning generational and congressional zealots in Miami like Rubio. Extreme Counter Revolutionary Cubans totally ruled Miami and created Little Havana beginning in 1959 but, as the first photo in the montage below shows, Little Havana's indelible grip on Washington began in 1989 when the self-serving Bush dynasty put Havana-born Ileana Ros-Lehtinen in the U. S. Congress for three decades, followed by the Diaz-Balart brothers, Rubio, etc.



Biden {was} Asked About Cuba

 At News Conference Today!!!!

{January 28th, 20921}

      President Joe Biden's Press Secretary Jen Psaki for the past 8 days has held nationally televised News Conferences from the White House speaking for President Biden. Today, incredibly, she was asked about how the Biden presidency, on the heels of the Trump presidency, will deal with the U. S. genocide against Cuban families legalized and left behind by Trump. The short answer by Psaki included this punt: "It will take our path." That means that Psaki was caught off guard by the question because Cuba is supposed to be a low priority at White House news conference because, since the 1950's especially, the nearby island has been a football kicked around as a financial and political piggybank by both of America's two Political Parties -- with the Republican Party always eagerly participating in the rape & robbery of the island while the Democratic Party is now too afraid of the rich and powerful Cuban-Americans in Little Havana/Miami and in the U. S. Congress to do anything about it, although the Obama-Biden administration did at least try to do something about it. So, yes, today Psaki, speaking for the new Democratic President Biden, mentioned "Cuban-Americans" as she stumbled over her short answer about Cuba. Psaki, of course, was speaking of the Cuban-Americans in Miami and in Congress who dictate the USA's lucrative but obscene Cuban policies. Surely she was not speaking for the majority of "Cuban-Americans" who object to genocide against Cubans in Cuba.
    Of course, President Biden's Press Secretary Jen Psaki is one of many veterans from the Cuba-friendly Obama presidency that are now saturating the Biden presidency. For eight years prior to the Trump administration Biden was Vice-President while President Obama, when advisers like Psaki tried real hard and bravely to normalize relations with Cuba. But, considering the wealth and power of the Counter Revolutionary Cuban-Americans situated in Little Havana and in Congress, there is no guarantee the Biden presidency will be either strong enough or brave enough to contest Little Havana's iron-grip on the USA's lucrative and genocidal Cuban policies.
    From the beginning of his presidency in 2017, President Trump flew to Little Havana in the heart of Miami and signed genocidal anti-Cuban Executive Orders, and then proudly displayed such newly signed orders legalizing the genocide against Cubans on the island to appease the Cubans and their sycophants who control Little Havana. As shown above during such asinine ceremonies, Trump knew that neither the U. S. people nor the U. S. mainstream media would have the guts to make an issue of his genocide against innocent Cubans on behalf of not-so-innocent Cuban-Americans in Little Havana {and their opportunist sycophants like Rick Scott}.
     And now that President Biden is the most powerful person in the whole world, Biden has spent most of his time at his Oval Office desk in the White House signing stacks-and-stacks of Executive Orders. As shown above, Biden has already signed over 40 new Executive Orders designed to overturn Executive Orders that had been signed into law by Trump. But believe me, don't expect President Biden to reverse the USA's genocide against Cubans on the island. AND THE REASON IS: There are simply TOO MANY people in Miami, Little Havana, Newark, Washington, Congress, and elsewhere who are amassing far too much money and power from the genocide against Cubans on the island. Generations ago, back in the 1950's, a gutless generation of Americans accepted their Democracy teaming with the Mafia to support the brutal and thieving Batista-Mafiosi DICTATORSHP in Cuba so rich American individuals and corporations could partake in the brutal plundering of the Caribbean's largest and most luscious island nation.
    On January 1, 1959, history registered the fact that the Cuban Revolution shocked Batista, the Mafia, the United States, and the world by overthrowing the U.S.-backed and Mafia-backed Batista dictatorship. And in January of 1959 Little Havana began evolving in Miami as the all-out effort to recapture Cuba for the Cuban exiles and the United States of America. For going on seven decades, from the soil of the strongest and richest nation in world history, that vicious effort to recapture Cuba has been ongoing and continues in these last few days of January, 2021. And in Washington the post-Trump administration of the DEMOCRATIC JOE BIDEN presidency will not be strong enough TO STOP IT.


COVID Now Hits Cuba Hard

 Even the Miami Herald Sympathizes!!!

     When the Miami Herald, and especially Nora Gamez Torres, write about Cuba it is always from the perspectives of Little Havana Counter Revolutionaries and Havana dissidents, and never are opinions of Cubans who love their island considered. Yet today -- January 27, 2021 -- even the Miami Herald and Nora Gamez Torres seemed to have some sympathy for Cubans on the island who are suffering from both the simultaneous blows of COVID-19 and the genocidal U. S. Blockade, both of which have particularly harmed the island in recent days. Here is a part of the very long article the Herald and Gamez published today about the increased suffering of Cubans on the island.
     Normally the Miami Herald and Nora Gamez Torres tell their readers that all the good Cubans are in the Miami area and all the bad Cubans are still on the nearby island. Such propaganda includes usually only includes Counter Revolutionary and dissident views, never the opinions of the majority Cubans in Cuba who support their Revolution and mortally hate the Little Havana-promoted genocidal Blockade that the superpower U. S government aims at them. But, as you can detect above, today Gamez and the Miami Herald...incredibly...appeared to be honestly displaying a little concern for Cuban families in Cuba reeling from the twin perils of the genocidal Blockade and a deadly surge of the deadly COVID-19 virus that has hit the island. Above you can see that today even Gamez and the Herald permitted a non-dissident Cuban on the island to provide an opinion and insight.
      The Miami Herald article regarding Cuba today, amazingly, included a pertinent comment from Dr. Maria Guadalupe Guzman, who is an expert at Cuba's Pedro Kouri Institute of Tropical Medicine. She confirmed that the dreaded South African strain of COVID-19 has been detected on the island. Dr. Guadalupe Guzman said: "With the data we have, we cannot say that it is widespread in the country. But we cannot rule it out because a high number of cases are being reported daily."
     Today a Cuban on the island, Saily Martin, took this photo of mean-looking storm clouds blanketing her Havana. But Saily and the other pugnacious and family-oriented Cubans in Cuba are most worried about the daily effects of the U.S. Blockade and the COVID-19 PANDEMIC. Since January 2nd there have been 50 deaths and 9,404 new COVID cases in Cuba and prior to this surge the island had one of the world's best successful records in dealing with the pandemic.
      Today...despite the storm clouds, the Blockade, and the Pandemic...professional photographer Wendy Oliva posted this photo on her social media platforms...as if to emphasize that Cuban families on the island since 1959 have survived Little Havana and now they will now in January of 2021 continue to survive Little Havana, the Pandemic, and all the other Storm Clouds that threaten their vulnerable but beautiful island.


RUBIO Dictates Policies to Biden Too

 Just as RUBIO Dictated to Trump!!

      Having been stationed in both Havana and in Little Havana by Miami's WPLG-TV-10-NBC, a fair-minded journalist named Hatzel Vela remains one of the few American journalists courageous enough and competent enough to actually report honestly on U.S.-Cuban Relations. And now -- Friday, Jan. 22nd, 2021 -- Hatzel Vela has the best and most honest update on how the Trump-to-Biden transition in the White House will affect the USA's approach to the Caribbean's largest island. Hatzel Vela, a journalist who knows about such things and is brave enough to tell the truth, penned this update:
     In his first sentence above Hetzel Vela writes: "U. S. President Joe Biden had yet to make any announcements about his policy on Cuba on Thursday, but experts said that although there will be changes on the old administration's approach, the supporters of the U. S. embargo should not fret."
     In other words, Hetzel Vela knows that even with a Democrat, Biden, replacing the Republican Trump in the White House, Cuba will not be a top priority for the new U. S. administration. Although Biden spent 8 years as Vice President while President Barack Obama was brave, intelligent, and decent enough to normalize relations with Cuba, Joe Biden is not Barack Obama. In America's two-party political system, every Republican President has been aligned first with the brutal/thieving Batista-Mafia dictatorship that brutalized the island from 1952-1959 and then with the Batista escapees who have ruled Little Havana in Miami since 1959 when the Cuban Revolution evicted them from the island. And thanks to the Bush dynasty that pushed the Havana-born Counter Revolutionary zealot Ileana Ros-Lehtinen from Little Havana to the U. S. Congress for 33 years starting in 1989, a steady stream of Little Havana/Bush-aligned zealots such as Havana-born Lincoln Diaz-Balart, whose father was a top Minister in the Batista dictatorship, have streamed into Congress {including Lincoln's brother Mario} to dictate U. S. policy regarding Cuba, which has been extremely lucrative for Little Havana but also extremely brutal for the masses of Cubans on the island. Among other things, the U.S.-based terror attacks, assassination's, assassination attempts, the 1961 Bay of Pigs military attack, the Embargo since 1962, and the genocidal Blockade orchestrated by the Trump administration all attest to the cowardice of three generations of American citizens who have displayed neither the guts nor the intelligence to object to the thieving and brutal U. S. policy that began in 1898 after the Spanish-American War that was fought in Cuba and then by 1952, also without objections from gutless American citizens, the U. S. democracy teamed with the higher echelon of the Mafia so rich U. S. individuals and companies could partake in the rape and robbery of the luscious island nation, which happened from 1952 till the Cuban Revolution shocked the world by defeating the U.S.-backed/Mafia-backed Batista dictatorship in 1959. Since then, even more SHOCKING than the 1959 victory has been the fact that Revolutionary Cuba, somehow, has remained a sovereign nation for almost seven decades. As Hatzel Vela's article alludes, while the Trump presidency was fully aligned with Little Havana's total dictation of the USA's Cuban policies, don't expect anything too differently during the Biden presidency. You see, while Trump totally agreed with Little Havana using Cuba as a political and economic football and piggybank, expect Biden to be too afraid to question Little Havana's gruesome power. FOR EXAMPLE, in Hetzel Vela's article you will note {as shown below} that the same Little Havana zealot, Marco Rubio, who dictated Trump's Cuban genocide, HAS ALREADY explained that policy to Biden!!!
     As the brave and insightful Havana-Little Havana journalist and expert Hatzel Vela explains in the above article, Little Havana's Marco Rubio quickly told President Biden's Secretary of State Tony Blinken precisely what Little Havana demands that Biden must do regarding Cuba.
     As you can see via the three photos directly above, Trump began his presidency in 2017 by flying to Little Havana and turning over all his Cuban policies to Rubio and Diaz-Balart. Later the Trump handshakes essentially made Rubio the USA's Cuban dictator on U. S. soil. Thus, early in his reign as President Trump went to Little Havana to sign Little Havana-dictated orders with Little Havana zealots and benefactors such as Rubio and Diaz-Balart looking over his shoulders...further legalizing U. S. genocide against Cubans on the island while, of course, further expanding Little Havana's economic and political grip on the USA's Cuban laws and actions.
     Once he was installed as America's Cuban dictator on U. S. soil by Trump, as shown above Rubio quickly ONLY INTALLED anti-Cuban sycophants such as Mike Pompeo and Mauricio Claver-Carone as the ONLY people who were allowed to make decisions regarding Cuba. Of course, that was the case from January of 2017 until the very last days and hours of Trump's presidency in January of 2021 when Rubio's anointed Secretary of State, Mr. Pompeo, was still announcing new genocidal sanctions against Cubans on the island.
      And so, as anointed by Rubio, Mike Pompeo was Donald Trump's Secretary of State and never once did Pompeo vary from Rubio's austere and brutal decisions pertaining to Cuba. And as the brave and excellent journalist Hatzel Vela reports above, Rubio has already gone face-to-face with Tony Blinken, President Biden's new Secretary of State. In other words, it appears that Blinken has already gotten his marching order regarding Cuba from Little Havana.
