Inside the Cuban Hospitals That

By the time I climbed the steps of the emergency room entrance in San Miguel, Havana, I could already tell that the supposed first-class health care provided in Cuba was a myth. Hospitals in the island’s capital are literally falling apart. Friends told me to dress “like a Cuban” and not to speak while inside, since my Argentinean accent would give me away the moment I said hello. A member of the opposition Cuban Patriotic Union (UNPACU) party came along to guide me in my journey to the core of communist-style medicine. We entered the hospital at 10 p.m. on an ordinary Saturday night in September.

But Comrade Bernie told us that the Cubans had Medicare for All, and it worked for the Cubans. And it was so great that Fidel had to import a surgical team from Spain. And Comrade Bernie and Comrade Michael told us this too. And Comrade Sean has told us Venezuelan has Medicare for All as well. Hey Comrades this is what we will get in Comrade Bernies' Medicare for All. All the Medicare you can want if you can find it.

THIS is the free universal healthcare that Bernie brags so much about. If he is the Democratic nominee, I think Trump will eviscerate Bernie the Bum in the debates. FWIW I can't see having a President named Bernie; it reminds me of the comedy Weekend At Bernie's and ol' Bernie is a corpse. With The Bern having sustained a heart attack recently, we could see real life imitate art if he's somehow elected. Bernie dies-the Democrats panic-keep his death quiet-fly his corpse to state events for public appearances. Think that's unlikely? As unlikely as a secret gvt cabal conspiring to overthrow a sitting US President.

I don't think so Bernie. You want to turn this great country into a 3rd world shi-hole. I weep for the future of this country if this is the kind of leadership that are coming.

#3 makes a good point: Castrocare actually killed Hugo Chavez. The poor boob believed in it when he had way better options in Brazil and what happened, happened. Not even Castro trusted castrocare, he got his doctors from Spain.

Well, it's over. A couple of years and $250 million later, Tom Steyer's presidential run has left him exactly where he started in the presidential race, at zero. The poor wretched monomaniac of greenie virtue now goes the way of Jay Inslee, the qualified, but leftist, governor of Washington state who, like Steyer, was also global warming bore and washed out because of it. You'd think maybe Steyer would have noticed how unimportant this 'sky is falling' greenie cause was with voters by that point, but nope, Steyer continued to sell that snake oil to voters, thinking a barrage of television ads would make them catch on. He never had a clue.

When it comes to Fidel Castro, Bernie just can’t quit him. The problem for Bernie is that Florida, with its 248 delegates for the Democrat primary and its 29 Electoral College votes, may be finding it increasingly easy to quit Bernie. Bernie has a man-crush on Fidel Castro. Given the opportunity, he keeps lavishing love on a dictator who drove thousands of his country people to exile, slaughtered thousands more, imprisoned tens of thousands of his people, and drove his country into decades of poverty.

Bernie Sanders got himself into hot water with Florida's voters by praising Cuba's 'literacy programs,' which were ugly coercive propaganda efforts for those who experienced them. It's far from the only thing he's praised about the Castroite communist hellhole, too. According to the New York Times: MIAMI — In the spring of 1989, as the outgoing mayor of Burlington, Vt., Bernie Sanders and his wife, Jane, traveled to Cuba on an eight-day trip, with the hopes of meeting the Cuban dictator, Fidel Castro.

I'm stuck here in San Diego's congressional District 53, a gerrymandered zone that has the gay progressives of Hillcrest, the rabidly left-wing academics of the liberation theology–lovin' University of San Diego, and the illegals of Chula Vista all spliced together, in what's hardly a community of interests. I'm in a small hospital and defense contractor zone attached to these constituencies — nothing in common with the other areas, just useful filler for ensuring that a congressional seat has enough residents to get the seat for a Democrat. So with disgust, I watch the 53rd congressional race to vacate Rep. Susan Davis's seat, Davis

The global warming faithful are always quick with the talking points about a “scientific consensus” that doesn’t exist, and the tale that 97% of scientists say man is causing the planet to overheat. But we’ll never hear them discuss publicly how researchers who don’t agree with the narrative have been blacklisted. What are they afraid of? Of course the climate alarmists will never admit such a list even exists. But Roger Pielke Jr., who teaches science, environment, and technology policy at the University of Colorado, says it does. “A climate advocacy group called Skeptical Science hosts a list of academics

Bernie Sanders has said the American dream is more likely to be realized in socialist Venezuela than the United States. Maybe he'd like to explain this version of the American dream found in a massive money laundering operation by Venezuelan Chavistas who've been busted for looting their country in order to retire in mansions and condos on Miami Beach: According to the Miami Herald: The business elites are suspected of paying hefty bribes to the government officials in exchange for making loans in bolivars to the national oil company, Petróleos de Venezuela, S.A., and then receiving repayments in dollars —

On the evening of February 19, 2020, in the west German city of Hanau, a severely disturbed 43-year-old German male opened fire in two separate bars frequented by persons of non-German origin, particularly Turkish, killing nine innocent people. It appears that all the victims were non-Germans, either immigrants or first-generation born of immigrants. The murderer fled the scene, returned to his apartment, and turned the gun on his 72-year-old mother and then on himself. Eleven dead. The perpetrator, Tobias Rathjien, apparently never married, had posted an extensive internet manifesto before his evil deeds and,

A new wildfire has ignited in the US, worse than the recent out-of-control wildfires in Australia. This fire, rather than being fueled by dead trees and mismanaged forests, is instead fueled by Trump hatred and near dead politicians wishing to turn America into a communist dictatorship. With the media, entertainment industry, and academia fanning the flames, the fire is raging across America, threatening to “Bern” down the Democrat party. A few unexpected firefighters, like Chris Matthews and James Carville, are warning about the all-consuming fire, but their words are squirt guns against a raging inferno.

The Democratic Party is in a state of panic over an unelectable extremist emerging as the possibly unstoppable frontrunner for its presidential nomination. When an institution is in a crisis like this, its leaders get called on to step in and exercise some leadership. The problem for Democrats is that their official leaders aren’t their real leaders. “Bernie Sanders cannot beat Trump,” warns 94-year-old longtime party mega-donor and Joe Biden backer Bernard Schwartz, who is appealing to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to come forward and back one of Sanders’ rivals. Worse, Bernie at the top of the ticket could have a reverse coattail effect

Gov. Gavin Newsom is coming under fire for an executive order he signed that redirects voter-approved gas taxes initially designed to expand transportation and infrastructure repair projects to “climate change”-related projects not authorized by the voters. SB1, proposed by Senate President Toni Atkins, D-San Diego, was a gas tax repeal initiative, called the “Road Repair and Accountability Act.” Tax revenue from the bill would repair the state’s failing roads, highways and bridges. SB 1 was passed to “invest $54 billion over the next decade to fix roads, freeways and bridges in communities across California and puts more dollars toward transit and safety,” according to RebuildingCA.gov.

This is clearly a highly influential publication. Only a couple of weeks after I pleaded in these pages for the repatriation to America of Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, it was accomplished. In a magnificently self-regarding and self-pitying statement to the world, Prince Harry and his recalcitrant wife announced that they would be ‘stepping back’ from royal duties and spending much more time in ‘Canada’, or, as it is more familiarly known, Los Angeles. In this statement, released without the Queen’s knowledge, Harry and Meghan expressed a vague wish that they might at some point in time become ‘financially independent’ from the British taxpayer, seemingly possessed of the interesting belief

Meghan Markle is said to have been snubbed by Disney for being a "controversial figure," following reports her agent was finding her a Hollywood role with the film company. The Duchess of Sussex, 38, is believed to be trying to get herself back into acting as she and husband Prince Harry start their new life, after they stepped down from royal duties. Responding to speculation, an unnamed film executive has revealed there are "limited plans" for Meghan to secure a big role - after she allegedly told her agent to find her a superhero role with Marvel.

SUMTER, S.C. — In October, Pete Buttigieg said he would do better with South Carolina’s black voters once they got to know him better. When he came back in December, he was still working on introducing himself to the black electorate. And in late January he admitted he was scared that at his rallies in South Carolina, where 60 percent of the Democratic electorate is black, most attendees were white. Those fears were borne out on Saturday, when Mr. Buttigieg was trounced in South Carolina’s primary and earned just two percent of the vote from African-Americans, according to early exit polling.

Tulane University's "Victory Bell" has been removed from its pedestal on the school's Uptown campus after officials learned it was originally used as a plantation bell. In a letter emailed to the Tulane community, President Mike Fitts and Board Chairman Doug Hertz said they were informed last week that the bell was originally used to direct the movements of enslaved people on a plantation. "It is terribly disheartening to learn that it is, in fact, a vestige of a horrific part of our nation's past," the letter said. "Now that we understand its history as an instrument of slavery, continuing to use this bell

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg explained in an interview with “60 Minutes” why he believes America will choose him over President Donald Trump this fall by characterizing those who swept Trump into office as mounting a “revolution” against the educated elite. “A few years ago there was a revolution against the intelligentsia,” Bloomberg told CBS’ Scott Pelley. “People said, ‘you know, those people, particularly on the coasts, are trying to tell us what to do.’ They wanted a change. That explains Donald Trump. Now, people seem to have changed. This cycle, people want stability.”

You would have thought that the vibe at CPAC this year would involve stressing about our November election prospects, but even as the market dipped over the coronavirus scare the general consensus was that whether we face Vermont Stalin or that miserable monied midget, we got this. The common image of conservatives is one of dour pessimism, but that is less due to some inherent doom-mongering on the right than to the decades of failure by Conservative Inc. Under the wise, steady guidance of our establishment betters, all we did was lose, but Donald Trump gave the cons a taste of winning, and they like it.

Conservatives have been trying for decades to create an immigration system that rewards immigrants who won’t be a burden on society and discourages those who will. The Trump administration this week began enforcing the “public charge” rule, giving U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services the authority to refuse green cards — the key step on the path to citizenship — to people who have used a wide range of nonemergency welfare programs. “The main reason this got done is because we have a president who is determined enough to make self-sufficiency matter again in a meaningful way,” said Ken Cuccinelli, who pushed through the rule as acting chief of USCIS
