WHO Will Be First Cuban U. S. President??

Yes, there is a TOP candidate!! 

  Born in 1949 in Las Villas, Cuba, Xavier Suarez, after getting his law degree from Harvard, became the first Cuban-American to become Mayor of Miami on November 13th, 1985.

             Now 73 years old, Xavier Suarez remains an awesome political superpower in Miami, as are his sons.
     One of Xavier Suarez's sons -- Francis Xavier Suarez -- is now the Mayor of Miami and he has held that position since 2017.
    Born in Miami on October 6, 1977, Francis Suarez...like his father before him as Mayor of Miami...wields enormous political and economic power nationally because of Florida's massive haul of Electoral Votes that can dictate U. S. presidential elections. As noted above, Francis Suarez has already used his power as Miami mayor to ask the "U. S. to intervene in Cuba." And Francis Suarez now is considered to one day become the first Cuban-American to be President of the United States.
    As noted above, even the superstar columnist George Will with the superstar Washington Post is among the media experts predicting that Francis Suarez is on the path to become the first Cuban-American to become President of the United States.
     If the Washington Post and its decades-long most famed columnist George Will is the latest to predict that Miami Mayor Francis X. Suarez will soon be the first Cuban-American to become President of the United States, PERHAPS we can bet on it happening. The owner of the Washington Post is Jeff Bezos who became the richest person in the history of the world after he became the adopted son of Miguel Bezos who was born in Cuba and openly doesn't like the current "regime" in Cuba. Ultra-rich people, especially such as the exceptionally and uniquely rich Jeff Bezos, can decide elections in the United States. Yes, in 2016 Miami's Marco Rubio ran in the Republican primary as a well-funded presidential candidate, but lost. But Miami's Francis X. Suarez will {likely} win, perhaps as early as 2028!!!

Cubans Try to Survive US Blockade


    Today -- Saturday, May 21st, 2022 -- these two Cubans won a Gold metal in the World Canoeing Championships in the Czech city of Racice. Yaristeidis Cirilo and Katherine Nuevo won Gold in a spirited duel with top challengers from China and Moldova. This photo and report today is a reminder that there are times each day when Cubans are involved in things other than just reacting to the endless U. S. Blockade, the lessening Pandemic, etc., etc.
      And today -- Saturday, May 21, 2022 -- The Mexico City newspaper Exceisior was startled to report {above} that six Cuban boxers shocked Mexican sportswriters by totally dominating a key professional boxing event!!!!

Miami Wildly Nostalgic for CUBA!!!


    This weekend -- May 21-22 of 2022 -- Little Havana in the heart of Miami will hold a lavish and wild celebration entitled: "Cuba Nostalgia: More Than An Event, It's A Cuban Experience."
    Since January of 1959 -- when the Cuban Revolution booted the U.S.-backed Batista-Mafia dictatorship out of Cuba -- Little Havana in Miami has been an  economic and political Gold Mine in the USA...much like Cuba was in the 1950s for the Batistianos, the Mafiosi, and the rich U. S. businessmen.

    But rich and powerful Little Havana USA in Miami on May 21-22 in 2022 will show how wildly nostalgic it is for the U.S.-backed Batista-Mafia dictatorship that ruled Cuba from 1952 till the first day of January in 1959. Of courseBatista's Cuba, while extremely brutal, was a financial bonanza for the Batistianos, the Mafiosi, and rich U. S. businessmen and rich U. S. companies in the 1950s...prior to the Cuban Revolution!!!
     Since January 1, 1959 Little Havana in Miami has essentially dictated the USA's Cuban policies because, by controlling Miami, Little Havana also basically controls Florida's crucial and massive haul of Electoral Votes that often dictate who becomes the President of the United States, meaning U. S. Presidential contenders routinely go to the Versailles Restaurant in Little Havana and meekly bow to the Little Havana leaders.
      For sure, since 1959 Little Havana in Miami has controlled both the Cuban politics and narratives in the USA, meaning Americans are routinely told how fantastically nice the Little Havana Cubans are and how fantastically bad the Cubans in Cuba are. Of course, as you can see above, a few brave sources -- such as The Mob Museum and the great author T. J. ENGLISH have documented what Batista's Mob-Ruled Cuba in the 1950s was really like. The second paragraph above states correctly that Batista's Cuba in the 1950s was ruled by the all-time top four U. S. Mafia kingpins -- namely: "The Havana Mob, including Charles 'Lucky' Luciano, Meyer Lansky, Santos Trafficante and Albert Anastasia, operated freely in the city until New Year's Day 1959 when Fidel Castro's leftist rebels suddenly overthrew Batista, seized the Mob's properties and closed its casinos." Every brave historian is aware of that history but since 1959 Americans are supposed to believe that all the good Cubans are in Little Havana USA in Miami.
       In May of 2022 a Google search about "Mobsters in Miami" will reveal countless shocking things Americans are not supposed to know...such as the headline "Miami is run by the Cuban mafia" in the Miami-based Progreso Weekly that is published by brave Cuban-Americans like Alvaro Fernandez.
     Above you can see the article by Miami-based Progreso Weekly's update by the notable journalist Alvaro Fernandez. It documents why Cuban-American Police Chief Art Acevedo, shortly after he left his huge job as Police Chief in Houston to take over the Police Chief job in Miami, quickly disclosed: "Miami is run BY the Cuban mafia." As you see in the article above, Art Acevedo was a "Cuban-American from California" before he became Police Chief in Houston and before he became Miami's Police Chief. So...except for his brief stint in Miami, he didn't know "Miami is run BY the Cuban mafia." And, of course, as pointed out earlier by T. J. English, so was Havana also run by the Mob in the 1950s!!!
    And, of course, for over six-decades the cruel and ugly U. S. Embargo against Cuba has cruelly harmed generations of Cuban families. In all those decades, while Little Havana USA has tried to regain control of Havana, Americans have been told that all the good Cubans are in Little Havana USA while all the bad Cubans are in Cuba, so it's alright to do things like starve Cubans in Cuba while lavishly enriching Little Havana USA Cubans. Thus, for over six decades Americans have been obliged to support Little Havana USA and hurt Cubans on the island.
      And this weekend -- May 21-22, 2022 -- in Little Havana-Miami there will be a lavish and loud celebration named Cuba Nostalgia!!! You know...for the Cuba that they...uh...Lost.

Cuba News? Depend on London, Not US!!!

     In the United States there is no chance to get accurate, unbiased news related to Cuba from the mainstream U. S. media, but it so happens that the two world-renowned London-based news sources -- the BBC and Reuters -- actually happen to have great, unbiased Cuban correspondents in Cuba, such as the BBC's Will Grant.
    Here are some prime Cuban headlines today -- Thursday, May 19th, 2022 -- pertaining to President Biden finally apparently easing some of President Trump's genocidal policies against Cuban families on the island that Trump legalized to appease a few rich and powerful Cubans in Miami/Little Havana. But from sources such as the Miami Herald, as usual, you are bombarded with only anti-Cuba/pro-Little Havana propaganda. So...if you prefer actual Cuban news, good or bad, you should take time to check with unbiased sources such as the BBC's Will Grant, not biased propaganda outlets in places like Miami.
    As shown above, when Will Grant reports Cuban News for the BBC, it is honest information.
     And as shown above today, Will Grant for the BBC even includes the opinions of Cubans on the island such as Bruno Rodriguez as well as the opinions of extremely powerful, rich, and Counter Revolutionary Cuban-Americans such as Senator Bob Menendez. In other words, as shown above Will Grant tells us both sides of two-sided news items.
     The mainstream U. S. media for too long has seemed only obligated to stress or only consider Cuban opinions and Cuban policies from extreme Counter Revolutionary Cuban-Americans such as Democratic Senator Bob Menendez or Republican Senator Marco Rubio...and in a two-party Democracy that is, I think, as injurious to the United States as it is to Cuban families on the island.
   Regardless of what the powerful mainstream U. S. media reports on behalf of Miami, this is the image of the United States of America that much of the world has today and has had for the past six decades regarding greedy and cruel U. S. grabs at Cuba. Perhaps...it is time that the mainstream U. S. media reports on such things as the general opinion that most people worldwide have regarding Cuban facts such as when a rich and powerful nation maintains policies that direly harm masses of everyday people in the much weaker and poorer nation...especially when it is meant to appease, enrich, and empower a few already rich and powerful people in the superpower nation.
    Many people...including Democracy-lovers like me...agree with this billboard that calls the six-decade-old Embargo/Blockade of Cuba to be "the largest and longest genocide in history." And if that is not true, perhaps the mainstream U. S. media should have the guts and integrity to tell us why that billboard is wrong or tell us it is simply misinformation.

Cubans Cheer New Biden Overtures


     U. S. President Joe Biden has finally started to turn back some of President Donald Trump's draconian Cuban policies.
     Today -- Tuesday, May 17, 2022 -- Reuters, the great News Agency based in London that has a strong bureau in Havana, reports that Cubans are "cheering" Biden's moves.
    As usual, as above Reuters produced the best international coverage of President Biden's easing of some of the Trump-era Cuban policies that strengthened the U. S. Embargo/Blockade that many Cubans believe had already been genocidal since 1962. Below is a 3 minute, 17 second report from NBC News on Tuesday, May 17th-2022: {Tap to view it}

Biden Finally Eases Cuban Starvation Tactics??

At Least...a little bit!!

     Make no mistake about it...Cubans on the island still believe that both the Trump and Biden administrations in Washington have tightened the already genocidal six-decade-old U. S. Blockade to appease the Miami Cubans and others who benefit from it economically and politically.
     Today -- Monday, May 16th, 2022 -- above is the start of the massively important announcement from the U. S. State Department heralding: "Biden Administration Measures to Support the Cuban People." Fantastic!! At long last, after 60 years since the Embargo/Blockade began, the United States democracy lists some..."measures to support the Cuban people." WONDERFUL!!! The first promise as shown above is to: "Facilitate family reunification by reinstating the Cuba Family Reunification Parole {CFRP} Program..." Alright, sounds good.
    And above are the U. S. State Departments other promises to Support the Cuban People. Also, they also look GOOD too. And the U. S. State Department, in the last sentence shown above, said: "The Administration is working expeditiously to effectuate these changes, which will be implemented via steps taken and regulatory changes made by relevant Departments and Agencies in short order."
"short order"
     Above you can see how CNN News described the U. S. State Department's announcement yesterday -- May 16th-2022 -- about easing the long-standing and extremely debilitating U. S. Embargo/Blockade against Cuba. In the second paragraph above, CNN News said: "The US will still prohibit American tourism in Cuba and won't allow individuals to travel there..." Of course, by the 1950s when the U.S.-backed the brutal and thieving Batista-Mafia dictatorship, the U. S. wildly promoted U. S. citizens to visit Cuba and bring along plenty of dollar bills because major U. S. companies shared in the spoils with the Batistianos and the Mafiosi. Therefore, that sentence above means that the Biden administration is not about to severely ease the injustice that the U. S. Embargo/Blockade has created for Cuban families since 1962. As a Democracy-loving American, I and many others are also concerned how much the Embargo/Blockade hurts the United States of America in the eyes of the world.   
    On Monday, May 16th-2022 Cubans on the island went online to read and study the U. S. State Department's four major announcements that concern their lives, and they pored over words like "in short order." Well, as the billboard above states, Cubans on the island have been waiting for over six decades for the end of "THE LONGEST GENOCIDAL BLOCKADE IN HISTORY." Cubans on the island know what the phrase "in short order" means. Now Cubans on the island just wait to see what the U. S. State Department means.
    For the record, this is how the Cuban radio, television, and print media explained the U. S. State Department's announcement about Cuba on Monday, May 16, 2022. Mostly, the Cuban media and the government put a positive spin on it.

Cubans Cry but some Americans Rejoice!!

    Today -- Saturday, May 14th, 2022 -- this Cuban mother in Havana is crying unabashedly, like many other Cubans on the island, after the explosion back on May 6th that has killed at least 45 people at the famed Saratoga Hotel in the heart of Havana.
      But these are the top Cuban-related headlines on May 14th-2022 in the U. S. and England. As you can see the U.S. Yahoo News and the U.K. Daily Mail are headlining about the tears of Jeff Bezos, an American who happens to be the world's richest man and whose father Miguel Bezos was, of course, born in Cuba...and now, like his son, is an ultra-powerful Counter Revolutionary U. S. citizen.
Miguel & Jeff Bezos, ultra-rich Americans.

    Jeff Bezos, the adopted son of Cuban-born Miguel Bezos, became the richest person in the whole world thanks to his Amazon gold mine and he has purchased an array of toys that include the iconic media giant Washington Post, now a prime opponent of the Revolutionary Cuba that overthrew the U.S.-backed Batista-Mafia dictatorship on January 1, 1959. As noted above on May 14th, 2022, the Jeff Bezos tears are about Cubans, like his father, who have richly immigrated to the U. S. since 1959.
    But in Cuba today -- May 14, 2022 -- the tears of Ana Maria Mari Machado were being shed for the 45 people who died, with many others critically wounded, by the May 6th explosion that destroyed the famed 5-star Saratoga Hotel in the heart of Havana. This photo was from Cuban television today as Ana Maria Mari Machado, an ultra-powerful Cuban Vice President, spoke...and cried...about the victims of the Saratoga Hotel disaster.
      This is a television image today -- May 14th, 2022 -- of Vice President Ana Maria Mari Machado speaking...and crying...at a session of the Cuban parliament regarding the victims of the Hotel Saratoga disaster.
   Americans, of course, since 1959 are programmed not to cry about Cubans on the island who are victims of Saratoga-like disasters or disastrous things such as the six-decade-old U. S. Blockade-Embargo against Cuban families.
  Of course, there are billions of unprogrammed non-Americans who do cry about disasters and blockades that Cubans on the island are subjected to. The president of Mexico, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, was in Havana for two days right after the explosion that destroyed the famous Saratoga Hotel. And for months Lopez Obrador has sharply criticized both the Trump and Biden administrations in Washington for taking "criminal" advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic to further expand the "already criminal and indecent blockade against totally innocent Cubans in Cuba." Next month...in June in Los Angeles...the U. S. will host the Summit of the Americas and President Obrador will not attend because he also thinks it is "criminal" that Cuba and its friends such as Venezuela and Nicaragua will not be allowed to attend. President Obrador, when announcing his reason for not attending the Summit in LA in June, also pointedly said, "To continue its Cuban policies since 1959, the U. S. conveniently lies about its love of the Batista and Mafia rule of Cuba prior to 1959."
      In the United States when ultra-rich individuals like Jeff Bezos and ultra-rich companies like Amazon began to be allowed to routinely buy mainstream media sources such as the Washington Post, Americans and others including Cubans began to suffer. In 2022 the top U. S. polls have revealed that "most Americans don't trust the mainstream U. S. media.". For the world's most famed democracy, that is an incredible development. AND.................................
...............for generations of Cuban families on the island of Cuba, it is particularly cruel.
