The coming Democratic implosion

leave a comment »

The Cowboys won’t play in the 2019 Super Bowl.  The Rangers are not quite ready for another post season run.  

Nevertheless, here is a prediction that I am very confident about.

Someone said that Doug Schoen, former Clinton advisor and Fox News contributor, told Nancy Pelosi to rein in congresswoman-elect Alejandria Ocasio-Cortez.  Isn’t that like telling LeBron James to shut up and play basketball?   How do you stop AOC from talking when every news outlet wants to invite her to the show?

The complete and total implosion of the Democrats, especially the majority in the House, will be the story of 2019.  It may not be covered that way by CNN and MSNBC, but the towers will start falling soon.

We already see cracks in the so called “women’s march,” a phony parade that should have been called “The march of the anti-Trump women.”  

We hear this:   

Organizers of a Women’s March rally slated for Northern California next month have canceled the event, saying they were concerned that participants would have been “overwhelmingly white.”

In a news release, organizers for the march in Eureka — about 270 miles north of San Francisco — said Friday the “decision was made after many conversations between local social-change organizers and supporters of the march.”

“Up to this point, the participants have been overwhelmingly white, lacking representation from several perspectives in our community,” the news release continued.

Too white?

Is that crazy or what?  Isn’t the country 72% white — or at least it was the last time I checked the population figures.   

We will see the implosion over two issues: health care and the mad impulse to get Trump.

On health care, the Democrats are deeply divided between the socialized medicine crowd and a realistic wing that knows we don’t have the money to do it.  Many of this “realist wing” was elected in competitive districts and have a tough reelection waiting for them in 2020.

On “getting Trump,” they will find that impeachment is about “high crimes and misdemeanors,” not defeating Hillary Clinton or appointing conservative judges.

By the fall of 2019, the cracks will be very evident on those two issues and a few others.

The good news is that all of this craziness will convince Michael Bloomberg to run as an independent and that will reelect President Trump in a three-way race.  Bloomberg will be the Teddy Roosevelt of 1912 or Ross Perot of 1992 and President Trump will win 400 Electoral Votes.

So there is one prediction for 2019.

Cuban baseball before it became another tool of the state

leave a comment »

As we hear Senator Rubio call on President Trump to reject the new MLB proposal with the Castro regime, we remember that professional baseball began in Cuba this month in 1878.

This is what Senator Rubio said

“Legality of recent agreement between MLB & Cuban Baseball Federation rests on Obama era ruling that federation not controlled by Cuban govt. This is not just factually incorrect it is a farce & I am working to get it overruled as soon as possible,” he tweeted.

Cuban Baseball Federation not controlled by the communist regime?  What were they thinking during the Obama administration?  Everything in Cuba, and specially baseball, is run by the state.

Back to history, the first professional game was between Habana and Almendares, the two teams that would be great rivals until Castro dissolved the league after the 1960-61 season.

The league had four teams in the 1950s: Habana, Almendares, Marianao, and Cienfuegos.

It was great and passionate baseball.

My parents tell me stories of how they used to pick up the games on radio in the interior of Cuba: Ciego De Avila for my mom and Sagua La Grande for my father.

The good news is that they were huge baseball fans.

The bad news is that my mom was a fan of Habana and my father Almendares.  That’s like Yankees versus Red Sox!  In my parents’ case, baseball opposites indeed attracted: they got married, and three more baseball fans came into the world.

Along the way, many major-leaguers played winter ball in Cuba, from Willie Mays to Brooks Robinson.  It was a great stop for young players looking to crack the major line-up the next season.

Havana was also a AAA franchise, the Havana Sugar Kings in the Cincinnati organization.  Havana played in the International League with other teams in Montreal and Toronto.

We remember Cuban baseball before it became a tool of the communist regime.
