Cuba is going through hard times again and medicine is in very low supply, according to news reports: Locals on the island have complained in recent months that some drugs are so difficult to find that patients and their families are forced to camp out overnight at their local pharmacy, hoping to secure a prime place in line to purchase some of the small shipments when they arrive. The shortage is part of a larger economic crisis on the island that has forced Cubans to stand on lines for hours to buy basic goods like chicken, cooking oil, and flour. As always, the regime blames everyone else but


Excellent, satisfying read, by a real Cuban American.

Maybe Smidgen and Sean Penn can fly down there and help out. They’ve done such a bang-up job before.

They are out of medicine because their health care system is superior to ours.

According to Bernie, breadlines and foodlines are indicative of how advanced socialistic economies are in comparison to capitalist societies. Who can you trust Bernie or POTUS? I know my answer.

Safe bet that all 22 Democrats running for President, the 4 Odd Squaders and the Congressional Black and Hispanic Cauci will blame President Trump for Cuban food lines and drug shortages. They have already blamed PDT for Venezuela’s socialist nightmare, a nightmare that began years before Trump even announced his run for president in 2015. Finally, also safe bet that our “news” media will never, ever cite socialism or communism as the real reason for the hellish situations in either Cuba or Venezuela. Instead, Cuba’s situation for the past 50 years will be blamed on Trump while Venezuela’s collapse will be blamed on low oil prices and Trump.

Mr. Moore should move to Cuba. It would improve his health by forcing him to loose weight.

The left has tried for decades to push the canard that Cuba has the best healthcare system in central and south America. They try to use Cuba as a Communist success story. Reality is different. Cuba has shortages, and not all people in Cuba will receive the same level of healthcare. People like Michael Moore are propagandists that try to tell everybody that we must believe Cuba is a success in spite of evidence to the contrary. Michael Moore is nothing more than a liar.

fta: They blame the embargo, although it does not stop any European, Canadian, or Latin American company from selling to Cuba." If all those Canadian and European holiday makers love the commie island so much, why don't their governments forgo payment and just wholly subsidize the entire island? I mean all we ever hear from smug Canadians with their giant inferiority complex is how horrible the US is for our embargo. Put you money where your mouth is Canada!!

Baltimore Ambush: Trump forces

President Trump has done it again. Just as he forced Democrats to defend the far-left 'Squad' in his unexpected ambush on Rep. Ilhan Omar and her pals, he's now forcing Democrats to own the urban shambles and filth that characterize one-party blue-city rule, putting all Democrats on their backfoot. That's what's behind his surprise Twitter assault that began with Rep. Elijah Cummings and his rat-infested Baltimore district, which pretty much came out of the blue. Here's his unusually long string of street-fighting tweets, all of them calculated to hit Democrats where it hurts:

As usual, the dustup about the census including a question about citizenship has nothing to do with what the loony left claims as their motivation to exclude it. They say it’s all about being sensitive to the hurt feelings and paranoia of people who are illegally present in the U.S. And, by the way, asking the question it is not a Donald Trump trick to ferret out those folks who are hiding under their blankets, afraid that the next knock on the door will be the jackbooted ICE agents, come to drag them from their beds and put them on boxcars headed for concentration camps. A brief history lesson here.

Warren Predicts An Economic Crash:
Her Policies Will Guarantee It

Posted by PageTurner 7/26/2019 6:04:27 AM Post Reply
Earlier this week Sen. Elizabeth Warren said that an economic crash is right around the corner. She’s right. But it’s her own plan that would bring about the collapse she’s predicting. Warren says that she sees all the signs of a “coming economic crash” that she — and she alone, apparently — saw before the 2008 financial crisis. Let’s leave aside the dubiousness of Warren’s self-proclaimed economic forecasting abilities, and the fact that Democrats have been predicting an economic calamity since November 2016. Here’s her central point: “The country’s economic foundation is fragile. A single shock could bring it all down,” she proclaimed.

Jeffrey Epstein, the man dubbed the "Palm Beach Pervert," by Forbes in 2011, is now in jail awaiting trial for running a child-sex racket. Up until now, he's always dodged trouble, but now he's under intense scrutiny by both the press and prosecutors. The idea, of course, was to pin Epstein to Trump, now that the Russia collusion narrative has collapsed. But then there was that intriguing statement by Nancy Pelosi's daughter, that a lot of Democrat "faves" might be going down. Remember this from the Washington Examiner? House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s daughter said that some favorite figures of

It doesn't get worse for a leftist when even CNN is warning that your 'economic solution' to the economic problems you've laid out are going to destroy the economy. Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren came out with a big, serious-looking economic plan intoning about a coming economic crash, her own supposed ability to forecast such things, and then calling for free college, a soaring minimum wage, more Dodd-Frank regulations on big bad banks, and lots of free stuff.

For all of Donald Trump’s moral flaws – the women, the profanities, the routine personal insults, the continual unpresidential conduct – he has raised the moral bar in one all-important area: This president has kept a great many of his promises (even if that wall is nowhere near to being built). And this outsized fact will be a huge advantage next year against whichever conventional politician wins the Democratic nomination. CNN’s decision not to allow any “raise your hand” questions in the Democrat candidates’ next round of debates, which the cable news channel will telecast on July 30 and 31 from Detroit, is first and foremost an example

MAKINDYE-LUKULI, Uganda   — The darkening clouds are ominous for many in this urban neighborhood, promising rushing rainwaters stinking of human waste from overflowing septic tanks. As Africa faces a population boom unmatched anywhere in the world, millions of people are moving to fast-growing cities while decades-old public facilities crumble under the pressure. Sewage is a scourge for residents of this community on the outskirts of Uganda’s capital, Kampala. There are no public toilets for some 1,200 people. Mud tinged with feces washes into homes during heavy rains.
