Post by @Cubanwindow

“You are the first group I tell you about: a solar wall. It makes sense, let’s see, we’re working on it. A solar panel, panels, beautiful. Think about it, the higher it rises the more valuable it will be ” Donald Trump

“Not  My President” has ignored the demands of the international community and the claims of the immense immigrant  community that pushes forward an important part of the United States economy,  with its stubborn idea of ​​spending millions (which could well be destined for better causes as health and education) in building a wall between borders and has refused to subscribe to the “Treaty of Paris” in open defiance by marked and not overlapping economic interests to climate change.

Is he in full exercise of his mental faculties when he speaks of placing solar panels on the wall ? Or will it be that he has used his capacity as an entrepreneur and innovator?

We had already heard some show man joking about the possibility of taking advantage of the unreasonable costs of the wall construction with the placement of condominiums on either side of the border,  something that we found ironically funny and witty …

This absurd reality where we lived since January 20 returns to overcome fiction, so … we claim madness !!!

Sovereignty, Independence and Principles, pending subjects for the current US GOP.

Press Conference by Cuban Foreign Minister 

Last June 16, the President of the United States Donald Trump announced in Miami the policy his government has decided to implement with regard to Cuba.

The Cuban government, meanwhile, issued an official statement. Cuban civil society organizations have also made declarations.

Among others, the President of the United States approved the following measures:

  • the prohibition of economic, commercial and financial relations between U.S. companies and Cuban entities linked to the Ministry of the Revolutionary Armed Forces and the Ministry of the Interior;
  • the prohibition of individual travel by U.S. citizens under the category of “people-to-people” exchanges, and greater monitoring of all travelers;
  • as well as a review of all the programs directed against Cuba’s constitutional order, to supposedly ensure their effectiveness.

Also repealed was the Presidential Directive issued by President Barack Obama in October 2016, which despite being profoundly interventionist, and aimed at changing the constitutional order of the Republic of Cuba, did however recognize our country’s independence, sovereignty, and self-determination; Cuba’s revolutionary government as a legitimate and equal interlocutor, and also proposed a new civilized relationship intended to benefit both peoples.

The Directive, which has now been vacated, also recognized the blockade as a failed policy, which has been unsuccessful, failed to achieve its objectives, and should be eliminated.

Post by @CubanWindow from the Original Cuban bloggers vs. Trump

 

Declaration

Cuba also exists in the blogosphere.

It is the daily testimony and free thought of a nation and a people in all its rich culture of resistance and life.

Precisely because of that patriotism that identifies us as a community, we denounce the recent statements by the President of the United States,  so offensive and insulting toward our people.

Trump brakes, backs off, takes off in history, assumes the worst of positions and was surrounded by subjects with a comprehensive criminal record

The Cuban bloggers:

  • We follow and encourage the rapprochement between the two nations, despite their differences, 
  • we reject the return to the offensive discourse and the politics of the caverns, so often defeated
  • We reprove all intentions of force against the Island, while disqualifying terrorists and cheating politicians as valid interlocutors for Cubans.

President Trump must know that his mandate does not extend to Cuba and his offenses brought back to the “ice age” serve only to reinforce anti-imperialist sentiment, one more reason to unite as Cubans

The road that we have followed and the qualities of the wheel that cross it are legitimate for the popular genesis that has given it life, without pressure of any kind, forged from the people to whom we owe our roots and the incredible history of this land, Which struggles day by day for a better society and for a better world.

Those who wish to join this statement can do so through the various platforms of Social Networks where it has been published or, in their personal pages.

Making a Splash: The Coney Island Mermaid Parade — Via MAD HATTERS NYC

Throngs of visitors come to New York City every year to watch the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. It’s such a popular event that hotel rooms along the route have the equivalent of “surge pricing” and still manage to sell out way in advance. That kind of fervor can only mean one thing: New Yorkers…

Realities: 3 Cuban residents mentioned by Trump in his conference on relations with Cuba, who are they?

WIF: MICUBAPORSIEMPRE

Trump’s conference on relations with the small island of the Caribbean was fraught with misfortune: the United States anthem was defiantly touched by Luis Haza, the son of Bonifacio Haza, one of the assassins of young revolutionary leader Frank Pais Garcia, a prominent revolutionary cuban fighter.

frank-pais

“To remove, demolish, destroy the colonial system that still prevails, sweep with the bureaucracy, eliminate superfluous mechanisms, extract the true values and implant, according to the peculiarities of our idiosyncrasy, the modern philosophical currents that currently prevail in the world; We aspire not to put patches to get out of step, but to conscientiously and responsibly plan the New Country […] “Frank Pais Garcia

The one who wrote the speech for Trump was defiant and disrespectful, as well as a painful example of someone who is very unhappy about Cuban history.

To make matters worse, the editor chose for the president to name three alleged dissidents “voluntarily” committed to the changes of the politics and social regime that for Cuba we want to impose from here for almost 60 years and now 12 US presidents.

Common characteristics: Mercenaries, annexationists, violent, rejected by the population, ignorant …
