Don’t miss my commentary on Obama’s visit to Cuba

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

 

 

Obama’s visit to Cuba has turned out to be a diplomatic disaster. As POTUS he was not greeted at the airport by Raúl Castro– and has been treated with a veiled disdain by the Communist government of Cuba– which doesn’t miss a chance of letting Obama know that it hates America.

The GOP Debate in Detroit: Not a word about Abortion

Another long debate with so much acting-out and little or no substance. Another show for network ratings and profits– and not a word about the defense of innocent human life. A nation that elects a leader who does not place the defense of innocent and defenseless human life above all– is a nation which has sold its future to materialistic atheism.

Censored in China

He had grown accustomed to the perks that come with being a powerful property tycoon who plays according to the Communist Party rules– that is until his fingers got too happy on the keyboard.

Ren Zhiqiang had over 30 million followers on his microblogging account. But everything came to a screeching halt when he criticized Xi Jinping, the President of Communist China. Mr. Ren asked for state media to serve the people of China- who, after all, are the ones who pay for it. Beijing’s government immediately took action to censor and shut down his account and issued statements accusing Mr. Ren of subversive activities against the government.

The BBC reports:

The Cyberspace Administration of China accused Mr. Ren of publishing “illegal messages that had a bad impact.”

As a Communist dictatorship, China maintains very strict Internet regulations– which include blocking major websites and censorship of posts by audacious bloggers. China’s censorship program is massive– given the fact that China represents the largest online population in the world.

China has issued new rules, which will take effect on March 10, banning foreign media and foreign joint ventures from posting content online without the blessing of Communist Party officials. The BBC’s English language website has been blocked in the past across China. On October 15, 2014, BBC Global News director, Peter Horrocks said it appeared to be “deliberate censorship,” on a BBC article titled “BBC’s website is being blocked across China.”

With this scenario in mind, I am not surprised that BBC’s China Editor, Carrie Gracie, is currently taking “long service leave” from China until the summer, and has returned to the U.K. Here’s an excerpt that appeared in The Guardian (28 February, 2016, titled: BBC’s Carrie Gracie: ‘China is difficult– a giant piece of history rising’)

China’s political situation worries her greatly. “The level of oppression, Orwellian security is very serious,” she says. “I feel perhaps I need to ratchet up the coverage over some of the sombre truths.

Last summer, some Hong Kong booksellers disappeared– and journalists are under constant threat. Lawyers are being imprisoned (but I must admit that the idea of trying to practice “law” under a Communist dictatorship is baffling!).

Xi Jinping is turning out to be Mao in a suit and tie. His reign of terror is driving underground just about anyone who opposes him. Or they leave China, before it’s too late.

Obama’s failures in Iraq keep mounting

More death and destruction took place today in Baghdad. The New York Times has issued the following report– which confirms Obama’s failure in that region:

BAGHDAD — Militants attacked an outdoor market on Sunday in eastern Baghdad, killing at least 59 people and wounding nearly 100, officials said.

A bomb ripped through the crowded Mredi market in the Shiite district of Sadr City, a police officer said. Minutes later, a suicide bomber blew himself up amid the crowd that had gathered at the site of the first bombing, he added.

Interior Ministry spokesman Sad Main said the bombings killed 38 people and wounded another 62.

Multiple hospital officials later increased the casualty toll to 59 dead and 95 wounded. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to release information.

The attack was the deadliest in a wave of recent explosions that have targeted commercial areas in and outside Baghdad.

Obama’s approach of leading from behind has failed. The military experts that he sent to the area a few months ago do not appear to have the situation under control– and the ISIS bloody footprint in Baghdad, as the capital of Iraq, will be very difficult to remove. The new POTUS in 2017 will have to do a major overhaul of our Middle East policy.

Cuba matters

 

As someone who suffered under the bloody Communist dictatorship of Fidel Castro, I am deeply concerned about the lack of interest in discussing the plight of the Cuban people  during the Republican presidential debates. There has also been little or no discussion of Obama’s one-way diplomacy with Cuba. This silence about Cuba, on the part of the candidates, extends to their time on the campaign trail. Two of the candidates for POTUS, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, are sons of Cuban immigrants. What’s going on?

KEEP GITMO: Communism and Terrorism go Hand in Hand

The Guantanamo prison should continue to house terrorists– as long as Cuba is controlled by Communists. After all, Communist Cuba has been a state sponsor of terrorism. Gitmo is simply one prison inside another.

Some brief remarks on today’s announcement about the Guantanamo prison.

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

KEEP GITMO - Communism and Terrorism go Hand in Hand - Copyright Marielena Montesino de Stuart. All rights reserved.

 

Today Barack Obama offered a plan to close the Guantanamo prison, which is something he promised to do during his first campaign in 2008.

Obama claims that the prison in Guantanamo “does not help our national security”, but undermines it,”—and considers Gitmo “contrary to our values.” Obama also said that the Guantanamo prison serves as propaganda for terrorists to advance their cause.

He can’t be serious.

What is contrary to our values are the violent acts committed by the terrorists who we have fed and housed in Guantanamo. Transferring these terrorists to other locations is exactly what would put us at risk. As far as propaganda is concerned, terrorists will resort to anything in order to advance their cause. Closing Gitmo is not going to deter them from spreading their evil message.

I see the Castro brothers and the new “diplomacy” with Cuba written all over this.

Meanwhile, a spokesman for the Pentagon announced that the Obama administration intends to meet the deadline, which ends today, by presenting a pathway to closing through the transfer of the 91 terrorists currently imprisoned. This would involve moving some prisoners to third countries—and the remaining number would be brought to U.S. territory. Good luck with that. Congress prohibits the transfer of these thugs to U.S. territory, since there are prohibition in our funding bills that prevent the Obama administration from transferring detainees.

The Congressional Research Service explains this further:

“Several appropriations and authorization measures enacted by Congress have barred funds from being used to effectuate the release of Guantanamo detainees into the United States. Moreover, Congress has enacted several measures barring funds from being used to transfer detainees into the United States or its territories or possessions.”

“The closure of the Guantanamo detention facility would raise a number of legal issues with respect to the individuals formerly interned there, particularly if those detainees are transferred to the United States. The nature and scope of constitutional protections owed to detainees within the United States may be different from the protections owed to aliens held abroad. The transfer of detainees to the United States may also have immigration consequences.”

This wanderlust on the part of Obama to have these dangerous criminals traveling as transferees to other parts of the world is reckless delusion— since movement of these prisoners to other countries or to the United States is considered a threat to our national security.

In the scheme of “all things Obama”– it appears that this desire to close the Guantanamo prison is also a goodwill overture towards the Castro brothers—prior to his upcoming visit to Cuba, the Communist island prison.

Communism and terrorism go hand in hand. KEEP GITMO.

It’s time to lift the fog… someone has to say the truth.

AFTER DEATH OF SUPREME COURT JUSTICE SCALIA– Can you trust US Senate Republicans with the next Supreme Court confirmation?

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Consider this, as you watch press conferences, television ads, GOP debates and town hall meetings:

U.S. Senate Republicans (including Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio) unanimously voted YES on September 24, 2013 to confirm Barack Obama’s “openly-gay” judge nominee, Todd M. Hughes, to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. This was one of the moments when authentic conservatives in America understood, once again, that the current Republicans in the U.S. Senate cannot be trusted. 

Remember that this unanimous vote by US Senate Republicans, in favor of this openly-gay judge, took place while family businesses– such as cake bakeries, wedding photo studios, etc., were being publicly harassed and forced into litigation, by the homosexual collective across the United States, for refusing to render services for homosexual “weddings”– based on their religious and moral beliefs.

Screen Shot 2016-02-13 at 7.43.57 PMGiven today’s news of the death of Supreme Court Justice, Antonin Scalia, may he rest in peace, can you trust the Republicans in the U.S. Senate with the confirmation of the next Supreme? Some authentic conservatives lost all hope after the US Supreme Court ruled that homosexuals have the right to marry. But for those of us who still hope that the United States can be saved from the abyss of materialistic atheism, the confirmation of the next Supreme is still cause for concern.

 

Here’s my article from September 25, 2013 detailing the unanimous US Senate Republican confirmation of Todd M. Hughes:

THE TRUTH: Feigned conservative Republican U.S. Senators voted “Yea” for Judge Todd M. Hughes

 

WHERE ARE THE MEN AND THE WOMEN OF GOD?  Not in the U.S. Senate!

Republican U.S. Senators pulled a fast one, while conservatives across America are focused on supporting the important efforts to defund– and eventually bring down Obamacare.  These U.S. Senators are clearly telling us that they are only interested in fiscal problems, but not moral issues that are having devastating effects on public policy.  Another episode of willful delusions in government.

 

BALLOT - PRIMARY - U.S. SENATE (REPUBLICAN) 2012 - FLORIDAThere is a reason why I ran for the United States Senate, as an AUTHENTIC CONSERVATIVE Republican (On the Ballot 2012):  to fill the void of authentic conservatism in the U.S. Senate!

Here is another evidence of the tragic reality that we are facing:

Todd M. Hughes is an openly homosexual judge, appointed by Barack Obama.  He was confirmed 98-0, to serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.  Republican U.S. Senators who are being paraded as “conservatives,” were part of this travesty.

EXCERPT FROM THE WHITE HOUSE ANNOUNCEMENT (Sep. 24):

This afternoon, the Senate unanimously confirmed Todd Hughes to serve on the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Like all of the President’s judicial nominees, Hughes has the intellect, experience, integrity, and temperament to be a successful judge. He is also gay.

The United States Courts of Appeals are the second-highest courts in the nation – a level just below the Supreme Court – and there has never been an openly gay judge to serve on a Court of Appeals until now.  Hughes’s historic confirmation is yet another “first” among President Obama’s federal judges.”

So Todd M. Hughes’s  sexual recreation as a “gay” man is extolled as a virtue– and is part of his qualification to serve as a judge in the second-highest court in the nation.

Alliance for Justice offers the following background information on Todd M. Hughes:

Excerpt:

He [Todd M. Hughes] is a former member of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Attorneys of Washington and the National LGBT Bar Association.

What can we expect next?

And these Republican Senators, who call themselves “conservatives”– had the audacity to cast a “Yea” vote, in support of Barack Obama’s pro-homosexual agenda.

God, please help us.

The traditional family is under vicious attack by an army of legislators who push liberalism and materialistic atheism– as they advance homosexual “marriage”– in their pernicious homosexual itinerary.

Meanwhile, it is very clear that it’s all about money and political expediency, for these feigned conservative Republican U.S. Senators.

Yes, of course, we want to get rid of Obamacare.  But trusting these politicians with your money, when you can’t even trust them on moral issues that are having devastating effects on public policy– is called willful delusions in government.

Someone has to say the truth…

This scenario may explain why Ted Cruz was the guest of honor at an event in New York City organized by an “openly-gay” hotelier in April, 2015.

Excerpts from the New York Times:

The dinner and “fireside chat” for about a dozen people with Mr. Cruz and his wife, Heidi, was at the Central Park South penthouse of Mati Weiderpass and Ian Reisner, longtime business partners who were once a couple and who have been pioneers in the gay hospitality industry.

Mr. Cruz also told the group that Peter Thiel, an openly gay investor, is a close friend of his, Mr. Sporn said. Mr. Thiel has been a generous contributor to Mr. Cruz’s campaigns.

…the juxtaposition of Mr. Cruz being the guest of honor at a home owned by two of the most visible gay businessmen in New York City was striking.

God help us!

#SOTU COMEDY RELIEF: Barack #Obama and his Last State of the Union Address

What was that again? Examining the SOTU

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Screen Shot 2016-01-12 at 10.27.26 PMI have no idea what President #Obama just said in his last #SOTU address. All of a sudden he started talking about “unconditional love”– along with a barrage of other statements that sounded like he was trying to cram a lot of ideas into a short amount of time.

The only thing that was significant was the fact that, as expected, he did not mention the ugly and painful breaking news about the ten U.S. sailors being held by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. Yes, the Islamic extremist Iranians that he has embraced with his appeasement deal.  Oh… and of course, he patted himself on the back for embracing the murderous Communist government in Havana, Cuba. In case you didn’t know, the Iranian and the Cuban governments happen to be BFFs.

In summary, this State of the Union address was a depressing performance. Nothing made any sense. It is at times like these that our brains crave comic relief. So I started thinking how Obama’s speech sounded like the “Bishop” giving a sermon in the unforgettable film King of Hearts, by Philippe de Broca. 

The video is set to begin at the Bishop’s sermon– if not, go to 51:37. Please click on CC button for Subtitles/closed captions. If you see “Hebrew” click on it and you’ll get English. Go figure. But I am grateful that S. Behams took the time to provide subtitles, so that English speakers can enjoy this great classic film.

It makes no sense, but sounds hilarious!
