Fox News stands with Laura!

leave a comment »

This is good news from Fox News.   They will support Laura Ingraham!   I love the  statement from Fox News:   

“We cannot and will not allow voices to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts,” Jack Abernethy, co-president of Fox News, said in a statement to the Los Angeles Times.

“We look forward to having Laura Ingraham back hosting her program next Monday when she returns from spring vacation with her children.”   

This is the perfect reaction.    Good job!

Memo to Dreamers: Vicente’s tweets are not helping your cause!

leave a comment »

Memo to Dreamers:   Please tell the former President Fox of Mexico to respectfully shut up and stop trying to compete with President Trump for “the loudest tweet” of the day.    

This is the latest rant from Sr. Vicente:    

Fox, 75, said NAFTA is a “trademark for progress and success” and added that Trump is trying to make America isolationist.
Trump said the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program instituted by President Obama is “dead” after Democratic lawmakers “did not care or act” to fix it.
Fox, who served as president from 2000 to 2006, ripped Trump for appearing to blame Mexico for not intercepting the large group of illegal immigrants, saying he is “blackmail[ing]… Mexico and the Mexicans.”

OK Sr. Presidente:   Why doesn’t Mexico stop the caravan heading north and deport the people violating Mexico’s immigration laws?

Let me repeat:  Vicente’s tweets are not helping the dreamers!

President Trump at 50% in the latest Rasmussen

leave a comment »

President Trump at 50% in the latest Rasmussen daily tracking poll of likely voters.     If you are interested, President Obama was at 46% at the same time in his first term.

What does it mean?   The comparison to Obama is not really very valuable.   Trump’s 50% does show that he has a solid foundation of support.

Lots of talk about change in Cuba but still a communist country

leave a comment »

In a few weeks, Cuba will have a new leader or a different guy using Raul’s corner office.

Unfortunately, it will have the same communist party and economic regime that devastated the island. This is from the latest party meeting:     

The Communist Party of Cuba (PCC) will maintain the “leading role in Cuban society” and socialism will remain “irrevocable” after the Constitution reform, now underway on the island, is concluded this week by the 5th Plenum of the Central Committee of the Communist Party, the only political organization allowed on the Island.

The promised reform of the Electoral Law, announced by Castro in early 2015 to be completed in time this legislature, was not addressed during the 5th Plenary, or at least any discussion of it has not been mentioned by the official press.

Chaired by Raúl Castro Ruz, first secretary of the PCC,the plenary session held in recent days is the last before the next president of the Council of State is appointed on April 19, a position that is expected to fall into the hands of the current first vice president Miguel Díaz-Canel.

The meeting was dedicated to assessing the obstacles to the implementation of economic policy, an analysis that comes at a time of uncertainty for the private sector, which as of last August has seen a halt on the issuing of new licenses for the most important activities.

So post-Castro Cuba will still be communist, or so they say!

The problem with maintaining a communist path is that Cuba’s economy needs massive change. It needs to create a more flexible economy to do business with most countries even in Latin America. It will have to show more respect for private property if it wants to end the U.S. embargo. It will have to create more jobs if it wants to employ all of those unhappy young people.

On the surface, Cuba will say that it will stay communist. In reality, it can’t if it wants to survive economically. Maybe they will wait for Raul to die before they admit what everybody knows: the system stinks!
