Thousands Join Cuba Freedom March Near White House

District of Columbia | July 27, 2021

Thousands of people protested in Washington, D.C., overnight on Sunday and on Monday to show their support for Cuban citizens, calling on the Biden administration to take more action against the island’s communist regime.

Protesters repeatedly chanted “Libertad!” after dark at the gates of the White House, according to a video uploaded by Rep. Maria Elvira Salazar (R-Fla.) on Twitter at 1:48 a.m. ET on Monday. “The #CubanAmerican community is at the @WhiteHouse demanding freedom for #Cuba,” she wrote.

It comes after thousands took to the streets on July 11 in mass protests across Cuba, calling for greater freedoms and an end to the communist dictatorship. They raised concerns about ongoing shortages of food and other goods, high prices, and power cuts, amid a deep economic crisis in the country.

Around 12:30 p.m. on Monday, protesters gathered at Lafayette Square, located across the street from the White House, and held a rally, after which they paraded across many blocks to the Cuban embassy.

Multiple videos on social media showed the packed crowd of protesters steadily moving toward the Cuban embassy holding banners and signs calling for freedom, as well as waving Cuban and American flags…. (Excerpts from the Epoch Times)

Nikole Hannah-Jones said Cuba is among ‘most equal’ countries because of socialism

District of Columbia | July 19, 2021

1619 Project writer Nikole Hannah-Jones said in a podcast that she believes Cuba is the most equal country in the Western hemisphere and could serve as a model for its integration agenda.

In a 2019 podcast with Ezra Klein of Vox and The New York Times, Hannah-Jones was asked whether there were candidates or places that she thought had a “viable and sufficiently ambitious integration agenda.”

Hannah-Jones responded that while she is not an expert on race relations internationally, she believed the most “equal” and “multiracial” country in the Western hemisphere is Cuba, which she attributed to socialism….

Biden’s reaction to Cuban protests has been a disgrace

District of Columbia | July 13, 2021

The initial Biden administration response to the mass rallies for freedom that took place across Cuba on Sunday was a disgrace.

As Cubans took to the streets defying the Communist regime’s totalitarian police, a senior State Department official tweeted that the administration viewed the protests as merely a result of unhappiness “about rising COVID cases/deaths” in the island country. That’s pure bunk. The slogans shouted by thousands who risked imprisonment or worse were about an end to the Communist dictatorship installed in the 1950s. “Freedom!” “Enough!” they cried.

The starvation and shortages that have outraged demonstrators are a direct result of the regime’s policies and repression. Some blame the lack of tourism because of the pandemic. But that money was largely funneled to an unaccountable and brutal government, not its long-suffering citizens…..

Mark Levin book ‘American Marxism’ rocks Amazon . .

District of Columbia | July 7, 2021

It has not even been published yet, but Mark Levin’s forthcoming book “American Marxism” already has hit No. 2 at Amazon. “Levin explains how the core elements of Marxist ideology are now pervasive in American society and culture — from our schools, the press, and corporations, to Hollywood, the Democratic Party, and the Biden presidency — and how it is often cloaked in deceptive labels like ‘progressivism,’ ‘democratic socialism,’ ‘social activism,’ and more,” says Threshold Editions, the conservative imprint of Simon & Schuster.

Our national security depends on our independence from China

District of Columbia | May 28, 2021

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we witnessed firsthand the breakdown in our supply chains when federal, state, and local entities had to compete with one another for simple personal protective equipment. It was a terrifying glimpse into a future situation that has the potential to be mimicked on a larger, more dangerous scale. This realization showed how the country needs a more robust dialogue with business leaders about the impact of doing business in and with China.

We can no longer assume that any product, no matter how high- or low-tech, is not critical or that the supply of those items is assured. If our collective experience with COVID-19 has taught us anything, it is that many of our medical and critical technology supply chains are entirely dependent on a nation that does not share our values. Building domestic resilience in these supply chains is a vital homeland security mission.

The question we face now is: How can we create more supply chain security and ensure we are better prepared for future crises?

The most important first step is to identify needs across the economy and do so in a way that allows for effective communication with the companies that operate in critical sectors. Without a complete understanding not only of critical items but also the ecosystems those items depend on, we will forever remain vulnerable to global shocks. We must have an immediate discussion about what level of vulnerability we are willing to accept and from where. I believe the Department of Homeland Security, which has the experience and capability to carry out this undertaking, is the clear nexus to provide this critical assessment….

The Who’s Roger Daltrey Says ‘Woke ‘Generation’ Is ‘Creating Miserable World,’ ‘Route To Nowhere’

District of Columbia | May 13, 2021

The Who frontman Roger Daltrey sure isn’t talking ‘bout his generation when he mentions a group of unruly youth he thinks is “terrifying.”

In a recent interview with Apple Music, the legendary rock singer went for the jugular of “the woke generation,” accusing the demographic of being so involved with and worried about political correctness that they are creating a “miserable world for themselves.” Ouch.

Daltrey, who – along with guitar legend Pete Townshend, drummer Keith Moon, and bassist Pete Entwhistle – was part of one of the biggest musical acts of the sixties, spoke frankly to host, DJ Zane Lowe about the current trend of younger people embracing ideas of socialism and communism.  “The woke generation — it’s terrifying, the miserable world they’re going to create for themselves,” Daltrey stated…
