Why aren’t Americans rushing to Cuba?

Before and After Castro

Cuba’s capital, Havana, was a glittering and dynamic city. In the early part of the century the country’s economy, fueled by the sale of sugar to the United States, had grown dynamically. Cuba ranked fifth in the hemisphere in per capita income, third in life expectancy, second in per capita ownership of automobiles and telephones, first in the number of television sets per inhabitant. The literacy rate, 76%, was the fourth highest in Latin America. Cuba ranked 11th in the world in the number of doctors per capita. Many private clinics and hospitals provided services for the poor. Cuba’s income distribution compared favorably with that of other Latin American societies. A thriving middle class held the promise of prosperity and social mobility. – PBS American Experience: Pre-Castro Cuba

Said Fidel Castro after his failed assault on the Moncada Barracks, “Not Communism or Marxism is our idea. Our political philosophy is representative democracy and social justice in a well-planned economy.”

I was visiting myy dear Cuban friend Eladio in the Spring of 2009. He asked,  “Juan, que pasa en los estados unidos?” (John, what’s  happening in the United States?)eladio-alone

My immediate response, “Oh, Eladio, hay una Obamanacion en la Casa Blanca.” (Oh, Eladio, there is an Obamanation in the White House.)

Eladio laughed heartily before soberly telling me how he saw parallels between our Obama and Cuba’s Castro. He proceeded to relate how he and several other wealthy businessmen financially supported Fidel Castro to rid Cuba of the corrupt and inept Batista government. “Nunca nos dijo que es comunista.” (He never told us he is a communist.)

Eladio pointed to me and said, “John, you have to warn your people.”

Back to headline above

As American tourists raced to enjoy the tropical beaches and resorts, the money poured into communist coffers.

Let’s be reminded Cuba is a Marxist-socialist country that controls every aspect of day to day life, including prices on all products and services. So it is the communist government exercised dramatic price increases on lodging and everything else. According to the Bloomberg story:

“Some rooms now cost as much as $650 per night, serving as a major deterrent to Americans hunting for novel warm-weather destinations.

Even the costs of classic car rides and dinners at popular paladares, private restaurants run by families, have in some cases tripled, Insight Cuba says. Prices have begun to moderate this year for the first time since 2014, the company said this week. But beyond the high prices lie additional difficulties for U.S. tourists.”

Central control of economies – price fixing – has proven to be a failure everywhere the socialists have control of prices.

My warning: the U.S. dollars spent in Cuba mostly go to fund the Marxist-socialist-communist government. Before you think to race over the Florida Straits in search of a cheap vacation in Cuba, you may want to reconsider and look to Mexico, Florida, Mississippi, Texas, or Alabama for your beach get away. You can thank me afterward.

Why would Americans want to go to Cuba while Cubans are dying to come here?

Which is more addictive, Marijuana or ObamaCare? Apparently, the latter.

As I read comments from constituents on Rep. John Ratcliffe’s facebook, I can easily Health-Insurance.jpgunderstand why many younger people want it: they don’t have to pay for it until they have a pre-existing condition or another serious malady, somewhat like a parachute whereby you wait until you are in free fall before pulling the rip cord.
My formative years were in a single-parent household of my mother and two sisters. There was neither Medicaid nor ObamaCare.
By the time I left my hometown of Palacios I had experienced an appendectomy, tonsillectomy, serious injury from a car wreck, nails through feet, respiratory problems, broken bones, and a near-death experience from a knife attack by a thug. The doctors and the hospital were paid in full.
For most of ten years, we lived in what today would be described as poverty. So, how was it mom was able to pay doctor and hospital bills? Easy answer: paying for Blue Cross and Blue Shield insurance was a top priority.
Allow me to simplify. Throughout my first 18 years of life in Palacios, Texas, mom was a responsible parent. She paid for quality insurance coverage.
While undergoing physical therapy here in Rockwall, a young PT remarked to me she how she struggles to pay down her credit card debt. Minutes later she remarked about flying back from a vacation in Mexico. Am I alone? Does anyone see how she and millions of our fellow Americans shirk personal responsibility then expect some government to pick up the tab?
The Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare) actually made health insurance Unaffordable for most Americans. Yes, there are a few who enjoyed immediate benefits due to catastrophic illness or pre-existing conditions.
When government controls prices and overrides free markets EVERYTHING UNDER GOVERNMENT CONTROL BECOMES MORE COSTLY.
Government control of prices disrupts the free market. Capital flees to where it can get a good return on investments. Fiona M. Scott Morton, writing for the Cato Institute, says, “The determining of market prices through the dynamic interaction of supply and demand is the basic building block of economics.
Insurers gleefully supported the ACA thinking the law would compel more people to do the responsible thing and buy health insurance, but that did not happen. Insurance funds are pools of money initially seeded by capitalists, subsequently grown through contributions by the insured whose payments are basically based on two things: risk factors (the likelihood of outlays to cover insured’s medical expenses) and expectations of investors for a good return on their investments.
ObamaCare grossly undermined the insurance industry and insurers willingly supported the Affordable Care Act expecting great returns on investments while wholly ignoring the obvious risks.
What’s a citizen to do? Take personal responsibility and buy your own insurance. Also, tell your congressional delegation you want a full repeal of ObamaCare.
Those of you who expect your fellow taxpayers to pick up the tab willfully ignore the reality of government indebtedness. As of 2/23/2017 at 5:00 am, total federal government debt was in excess of $66 trillion dollars or $206,289 per citizen.
Eventually, we run out of other peoples’ money and everything comes to a halt. Period.
God has mercifully raised up a type of Cyrus (Isaiah 45:1-6), someone prophets call the “human wrecking ball”, a man who actually understands the fundamentals of economics.
If you prefer to ignore the truth and demand more free stuff, you have chosen poorly.

No, SCOTUS, foreigners do not have Constitutional rights

supremes-to-decide-if-foreigners-have-constitutional-rights
Source: http://www.lifezette.com

I anticipate I expect the left wing of the U.S. Supreme Court to favor conferring the rights and protections of U.S. citizens on foreigners. As the author of the above story points out, the decision will be in the historically bifurcated hands of Justice Kennedy known for his unpredictable findings.

A casual reading of the preamble to the Constitution of the United States of America directly addresses this issue now before the Supreme Court.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Keywords and key phrases: “we the people”, “secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity”

The rights of citizenship of any country are determined by the government of the country in which the person or persons of interest lawfully reside. It’s not rocket science.

Our Constitution protects we the people of the USA. Not France. Not Germany. Not Mexico. Not Russia. Etc.

Were any Supreme Court justice to rule otherwise would constitute “bad behavior”, an impeachable offense. Reference: U.S. Constitution, Article III, Section 1

Tell your U.S. Senators to convey this simple message to all sitting U.S. Supreme Court justices.

Senior Adviser to the Human Wrecking Ball Educates George Stephanopoulos

Listen to Senior Policy Adviser Stephen Miller educate (or at least attempt to educate) leftist Democrat apologist George Stephanopoulos on 12 February 2017.

Mr. Miller correctly points out the fact the Judiciary is NOT supreme. He hasn’t yet come to understand that the three branches of government are NOT coequal. Learn more about this from a previous posting titled: Three Branches of Federal Government – Not Now and Never Before Coequal

Three Branches of Federal Government – Not Now and Never Before Coequal

What do you call a creature with three heads? Answer: MONSTERthree-headed-monster

Let’s dispell the myth of coequal branches of gov’t.

The authority structure of the United States of America is unique in all human history. God supernaturally moved the Founding Fathers by His grace to craft a constitution in which the supreme authority was vested in the citizens, not an oligarchy, not a human king, not a democratic mob.

My former pastor Larry Lea, speaking on the principle of authority, often said, “Anything with two heads is a monster.” He was referring to then popular Japanese monster movies.
If a government with two heads is a monster, what do you imagine a government with three heads is?
No. the Constitutional framework of our federal government does not have three heads, but the people heading the three branches of government either don’t know this truth or they simply choose to ignore it.
How do you know who the boss is? Is it not the person who can fire you?
The Legislative Branch has the Constitutional authority to remove from office presidents and judges, but neither the Executive Branch nor the Judicial Branch can ‘fire’ a lawmaker.
Who can ‘fire’ a lawmaker? You and I can. We the People.
the-constitutional-hierarchy-of-federal-governmentYes, the supreme authority of our government is God under whom the next in the line of authority is We the People. Third in line is the Legislative Branch.
At the time of this writing, even our new President Donald Trump, aka the Human Wrecking Ball, believes the myth of co-equal branches of government.
Isaiah 38:19 says, “The father shall make known [God’s] truth to the children.” John 8:32 amplifies this teaching principle, saying, “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
The Constitution isn’t the foundation of our government. The foundation is the Declaration of Independence, to wit:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”
The Constitution is the framework of federal government that rests upon the foundation of God’s authority as revealed to mankind.
I invite you to pray that President Trump, the lawmakers, and federal judges will experience a divine revelation of this profound and easily understood hierarchy of our system of government.

Dispelling the Myth of Co-Equal Branches of Government

You were taught this lie in public school. What lie? The lie that our federal government has three co-equal branches. the-constitutional-hierarchy-of-federal-government

A casual reading of the U.S. Constitution is the first place to start. [ Link to official U.S. Government Archives]

First the Statistics

  • Article I Established the Legislative Branch. There are ten sections and 2,268 words that describe every aspect from its membership to the enumerated powers of federal government to the authority to impeach presidents.
  • Article II defines the Executive branch in four sections and 1,025 words. This section authorizes the President to make treaties with the consent of the Senate, but not on his own authority. This article describes how the Legislative Branch can impeach him to remove him from office. The president is also authorized to execute the laws written by the Legislature.
  • Article III establishes the Judicial branch in three sections and 377 words.
  • The Federal Register (the daily newspaper of the Federal government) is a legal newspaper published every business day by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). The Federal Register contains Federal Agency Regulations. Proposed Rules and Public Notices. There are 743,069 documents published on tens of thousands of pages.

Dr. Ben Carson estimated the size of the Federal Register in 2015. At the end of that year, the Register had 82,036 pages. At 250 pages per inch, the Register would make a stack twenty-seven (27) feet high and this was two years ago. You can imagine its size now.

Analysis

In any industry or organization, how do you know who the boss is? Is it not the person who can fire you?

There are actually five divisions of government, the most important division is the ‘We the People’ division. Federal bureaucracies are known as the fourth branch of government.

We the People can fire lawmakers, representatives and senators. The Legislative Branch can fire Presidents and federal judges. However, neither the President nor the Judiciary can fire lawmakers. Do you see now the hierarchy of government?

Let’s take a moment to review the fourth branch, the bureaucracies. Over the eight years of the Obama presidency, 20,642 regulations were added. This amounts to seven new laws per day, 365 days per year for 8 years.

Historian David Barton says we Americans commit on average three felonies a day and have no idea what regulations we violate.

Summary

The 2016 election cycle was unlike any in all our history. President Donald Trump was elected by Democrats, Republicans, Independents, and Libertarians. He was opposed by the leadership of both major political parties. He pledged to drain the swamp, cut taxes, slash confiscatory business-strangling regulations and make America great again. While giving his inaugural speech, he said and I quote:

This is your day.

This is your celebration.

And this, the United States of America, is your country.

What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.

January 20th, 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.

The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. Everyone is listening to you now. You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement, the likes of which the world has never seen before.

At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction that a nation exists to serve its citizens.

Read the entire inaugural here president-trumps-inaugural-address-20-january-2017

It’s time for all Americans, regardless political party affiliation, to take back ownership of this nation.

May God bless these United States and may God bless President Donald Trump.

We elected a REAL Republicans but we must now defeat FAKE Republicans

So-called old-guard Republican insiders actually want the Congress and our newly elected stop-feeding-rinosPresident to adopt leftist policies that run contrary to genuine science and common sense.

Bloomberg Headline of February 7, 2017, 6:34 PM CST, updated February 8, 2017, 10:19 AM CST:

Old-Guard Republicans to Push Carbon Tax at White House Meeting

“The Republican and business leaders, calling themselves the Climate Leadership Council, lend their stature to an approach for addressing climate change that mirrors an idea already advanced by Exxon Mobil Corp.Supporters say the tax is a conservative solution to climate change that replaces a regulatory regime with a free-market approach for addressing the greenhouse gas emissions.”

First and foremost, this is not “a conservative solution to climate change”. This is an ignorantly promoted end-around play by RINOs to solve a problem that does not exist. This is to say there is zero, nada, scientific evidence of anthropogenic climate change, formerly called global warming.

Contact your two U.S. Senators and your Representative. Tell them not to support the outlandish proposal by RINOs to create a carbon tax to appease the environmentalists. We won. Let’s, for once, behave like winners.
