Fidel Castro Is Dead!

Fidel Castro is dead at the age of 90. The brutal communist dictator established a repressive police state in Cuba, failing to honor his promise of free elections for a democratic nation. He executed thousands of Cubans who opposed his totalitarian regime and imprisoned tens of thousands, beating and torturing many of them. He divided tens of thousands of families, destroyed the economy and the culture and established a communist regime with no place for human rights and freedoms, becoming a satellite of the Soviet Union. He put the world on the brink of nuclear war during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

During almost six decades, millions of Cubans have fled the communist island in search of freedom and prosperity because all freedoms were suspended by the tyrant who would lecture the nation via radio and TV saying: “Dentro de la revolución todo, contra de la revolución nada.” (With the revolution, everything, against the revolution, nothing.) He made sure all his opponents were silenced by incarceration and often by torture and death.

Fidel Castro and his communist regime exported and supported terrorism, guerrilla warfare, as well as drug trafficking throughout Latin America and the world.

I’m a living witness that his legacy is one of repression, family separation, suffering, death, and destruction of a once prosperous nation.

Free Cubans all over the world are celebrating the death of a monster who enslaved an entire nation and made the Island of Cuba his private plantation. Donald Trump’s statements about the legacy of Fidel Castro are spot on and historically accurate. I should know, I lived under that repressive regime for more than ten years and experienced firsthand the havoc this brutal dictator has reeked during his more than five decades in power, turning Cuba into a maximum security prison. Trump said, and I agree:

“Fidel Castro’s legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights. While Cuba remains a totalitarian island, it is my hope that today marks a move away from the horrors endured for too long, and toward a future in which the wonderful Cuban people finally live in the freedom they so richly deserve.”

The President-elect added, “Though the tragedies, deaths and pain caused by Fidel Castro cannot be erased, our administration will do all it can to ensure the Cuban people can finally begin their journey toward prosperity and liberty.”

May Cuba be free at last!

Donald Trump’s Victory: The “Deplorable and Irredeemable” Americans Have Spoken

noviembre 9, 2016

 

Donald Trump has won the 2016 presidential election. The polls were wrong, the mainstream and corrupt media that conspired with the Clinton campaign and tried to destroy Donald Trump, was also wrong. Even many establishment Republicans were wrong. Trump’s victory defied all predictions and is one of the greatest political victories in our two and one half centuries as a nation.

Yes, I voted for Trump, as did tens of millions of Americans, to give him the victory. The American people have spoken clearly and unequivocally. Once again, the democratic process has triumphed and we have decided what we want and also what we don’t want.

This presidential election has been a referendum on many important issues: stagnant economic growth during eight years of a failed Obama presidency, a vote against Obamacare, which was rammed through by a president out of touch with the American people, who lives in an alternate reality where things have been turned upside down and wrong has become right and right is considered wrong. It was also a referendum on the Washington establishment, of which Hillary Clinton has been a part for almost three decades. It was a decisive NO to open borders and illegal immigration. It was a definitive NO to the course towards socialism our nation has been following for decades now, in no small measure due to a left wing mainstream media, most of the professorate in our universities, and eight years of a presidency focused on changing America forever and turning it into one more failed socialist nation in the world. It was a resounding NO to the most corrupt politician running for president in the history of our nation: Hillary Rodham Clinton.  It was a decisive YES to lower taxes, a strong military, to real choices in health insurance, and very importantly, a resounding YES to the appointment of Supreme Court justices who will abide by the United States Constitution and not legislate from the bench.

Donald Trump’s victory was an unquestionable YES to life and the right of the unborn child and a resounding NO to the abortionists in this country, who have created a multimillion dollar industry with the aid and support of politicians like Hillary Clinton, with Planned Parenthood being the nation’s largest abortion vendor. Journalist Kristan Hawkins said it well: “Planned Parenthood’s grip of death has been released from the White House. Come January, their influence will be gone.”

The silent majority isn’t silent anymore because Donald Trump has given us a voice. We were mocked by Hollywood (the cream of the “crap”), and dismissed by socialist professors in their ivory towers, whose numbers have reached epidemic proportions in our Colleges and Universities. The “deplorable and irredeemable” Americans have spoken. It’s time to make America great again!
