CUBANOS IN WISCONSIN BY SILVIO CANTO JR
Humberto Fontova was born in Havana, Cuba. He and his family of 5 attempted to leave in 1961, but only 4 of them were successful. Humberto Fontova Sr. (author's father) was grabbed by the milicianos. He yelled to Esther (mother) and the 3 kids (Humberto age 7, Patricia age 8, and Enrique age 5) to "Go ahead!....Whatever happens to me, I don't want ya'll growing up here!" The next day, from a cousin's house in Miami, Esther called Cuba and found out that Humberto Sr. was in La Cabana, firing squad central where 2100 men and boys were murdered. Humberto Sr. stayed there for 3 months and then was released and returned to his family in New Orleans.
History records few propaganda campaigns as phenomenally successful or enduring as Castro and Che’s. The Longest Romance exposes the full scope of this deception; it documents the complicity of major U.S. media players in spreading Castro’s propaganda and in coloring the world’s view of his totalitarian regime. Castro’s cachet as a celebrity icon of anti-Americanism has always overshadowed his record as a warmonger, racist, sexist, Stalinist, and godfather of modern terrorism. The Longest Romance uncovers this shameful history and names its major accomplices.
Victor Triay, author and college professor, joins me for a chat about the Latin American left. We will also hear from Michael Prada.
We will look at the death of Gabriel Garcia-Marquez, the well known author of the Spanish language, who died in Mexico City.
My concern is that Mr Garcia-Marquez is another one of those Latin American intellectuals who loved Fidel Castro more than the Cuban people. How else do you explain his fascination with Castro? Why the selective indignation?

Spiritual Warfare & The Art of Deception: The Hijacking of Spirituality
Jeb Bush has decided he's going to decide if he should run for president. He can probably be said to be the biggest panderer to the phony "Hispanic" demographic. Meanwhile Obama just slaps Cuban exiles and immigrants in the face by unilaterally deciding that he can wipe out the 50 year old embargo on Cuba. He gives the despatic murderous regime there NO incentive at all to change and consider human rights. Terry says we should do it becuse we are looking more like Cuba every day. Meanwhile Putin marches on and Kim Il Sung threatens the US with success
The reverberations from the Richmond County Grand Jury’s decision not to indict Daniel Pantaleo, of the NYPD, continue to be felt.
While protests on behalf of Eric Garner and Michael Brown, have been largely peaceful, if not very inconveniencing for New Yorkers, there have been sporadic instances of violence,
During a protest on the Brooklyn Bridge last Saturday, two men, both white, one a college professor, allegedly triggered a melee and assaulted police.
In the meantime, the events and reactions from that fateful day has caused tension between Mayor DiBlasio and the head of the Patrolman’s Benevolent Association, Patrick Lynch, who has accused the mayor of making remarks that are disrespectful of the police.
In fact, some of the NYPD have supported a pledge to disinvite the Mayor to their funerals.
On the international front, Barack Obama has decided to establish diplomatic and economic relations with Cuba, citing that the embargo, in place since 1961, has “not worked”.
Again, as expected, the reactions vary, with intense criticism from Sens. Marco Rubio Robert Menendez, both of whom are of Cuban heritage.
On the other hand, Jimmy Carter praised Obama’s “political courage”. Perhaps he sees this as a sort of redemption from the Mariel Boatlift?
I wonder out loud, what this means for black people economically, with an anticipated influx of Cubans to this country, just 90 miles away.
For those old enough to remember, this conjures memories of the Bay of Pigs (1961) and Cuban Missile Crisis (1962).
By the WAY, Obama says that black people are “better off” (HE said it, NOT me!)
So be prepared to discuss these pointed issues on the Critical Discourse University of the Blogosphere.

Global Peeks discusses United States/Cuba relations with Brian Becker, the National Coordinator of the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition that has fought against the U.S. Empire half century aggression on Cuba and efforts of regime change. President Barack Obama has moved to lift the sanctions and end the hostility between the two nations.
However after 50 + year of Embargo, numerous assassination attempts on Fidel Castro & illegal spying & meddling, can the U.S. be trusted? Mr. Becker will discuss the implications and the victory of the remaining Cuban 5 being released after unjustly serving 16 yrs as Political Prisoners in the U.S.
Brian Becker has been a central organizer of the mass anti-war demonstrations that have taken place in Washington, D.C. & around the US over the past decade.
Jon is flabberghasted by the fact that the drug war in Miami was so intense in the early 1980s that even Ronald Reagan was advised not to enter the city of Miami at ALL. The early 1980s was brought on by a borderless situation where drug lords overran local civil authority in Mexico, Colombia and other Central American states. 1 in every 4 people who died in Colombia died by drug related offenses. It didn't help that by the mid 1980s, Nicaragua and El Salvador was infiltrated by the CIA who were training rebels to fight the powers that be. This probably irritated drug lords more that America had their hand in the cookie jar. Jon goes into the dynamics of the drug trade in Florida, not necessarily the government underpinnings.
