Donald Trump proves he’s a racist — again

Donald Trump proves he’s a racist — again

Instead of worrying so much about the use of the word ‘SHITHOLE,’ headlines should have read: Donald Trump, president of the United States, proves he’s a racist — again. Editorials should have been written questioning how Americans could have stooped so low as to have voted for a hateful person like this.

The president fails to understand that the First Amendment also applies to him

The president fails to understand that the First Amendment also applies to him

Donald Trump is a menace to this country. He believes in little but himself. And most everything we hold dear and sacred — for example, the First Amendment — he sees as a menace to Donald Trump. Case in point is the new book “Fire and Fury.” The president attempted to stop publication of the book, instead helping it to sell-out on its first day out.

Hail Trump’s MAGA Revolution

Hail Trump’s MAGA Revolution

2017 is almost over. The Trump Revolution is in full swing. And here’s what we can expect more of in the coming year: Unaffordable health insurance; climate change continues to be fake news; good manners (nahh!), just grab them by the p….; more words being outlawed; nuclear proliferation; and that’s just for starters…

A reader reacted to the recently published caricature of the Guillermo Rigondeaux fight, where in a strange turn of events the Cuban boxer did not come out in the seventh round in a fight against Vasyl Lomachenko.

Hucksters in paradise

Hucksters in paradise

Florida real estate used to be sold by men and women who’d offer northerners a piece of paradise by the beach that turned out to be swampland in the Everglades, where if you survived the alligators and snakes, the mosquitos would finish you off. Nowadays we have men and women who sell ideas they label “good for the community.”

‘Money over love’ for these four

‘Money over love’ for these four

The expression “selling your sold to the devil” seems appropriate when talking of south Florida members of congress Marco Rubio, Mario Diaz-Balart, Carlos Curbelo and to a lesser extent Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. Each of these south Florida politicians has at least 600,000 constituents they pretend to represent, but instead they use as collateral in a high stakes game of poker played with the devil.

Taking a step back to the future

Taking a step back to the future

Marco Rubio, Mario Diaz-Balart, Carlos Curbelo, and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen want to assure that they starve the Cuban people to death. They understand that healthy relations between our two countries would mean missing out on the gravy train of millions of dollars provided by the U.S.’s so-called democracy-building programs that are handouts run through their sticky hands.

The weekend news was good, but the Cuban passport is still way too expensive

The weekend news was good, but the Cuban passport is still way too expensive

During the 4th Meeting of Cubans Residing in the U.S., Bruno Rodríguez announced that certain changes had been approved that dealt directly with Cubans who had migrated. His announcements were met with positive reactions from the crowd. At the meeting, before the foreign minister’s arrival, the most asked about issue, by far, was the Cuban passport.

‘Eargate’ feels like a U.S. operation to undo Obama’s Cuba opening

‘Eargate’ feels like a U.S. operation to undo Obama’s Cuba opening

Since the beginning it has been a strange case. A “Who done it?” of international intrigue. Logic, history and common scientific sense tell us that the culprits are Americans working to undo the advances in diplomacy achieved since December 17, 2014, between the U.S. and Cuba.

More than Bob Menendez goes on trial this week

More than Bob Menendez goes on trial this week

There’s more to the Menendez trial than a high ranking Democratic senator charged with corruption. A conviction could lead to his ouster from the Senate. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie would then be charged with replacing him until the 2018 elections giving senate Republicans one more vote to play with.
