Obama Fails Cuban Freedom Again
By Raoul Lowery Contreras
Susan Rice, President Barack Obama’s National Security Advisor, looked into the television camera and “declared” that the American 55-year-long “trade embargo with Cuba had failed.”
President Obama’s history-making “visit” this week to Cuba, she said, lays to rest that 55-year-long “failure.” She and the president “neglected” to mention that it was President John F. Kennedy, a Democrat, who “created and implemented” the embargo.
She’s “wrong.” Obama’s visit symbolizes his “failure to help Cubans be free,” not that the “embargo” failed.
President Obama’s visit to Cuba “reflects” the failure of Obama’s “policy” towards Cuba that, while foreseen for the past seven years, is a bitter “insult” to the Cubans who have risked their lives to “escape” from the island dictatorship.
It also “insults” all people who strive for “liberty” for all.
Thousands of Cubans are in “prison” for demanding “human rights.” Some were “arrested” even as President Obama’s Air Force One was “in the air on the way to Havana” according to reports.

Cuba’s “Communist” apparatchiks are busy “negotiating” business deals with China, “begging” Venezuela for free oil, “making” sure Cubans do not have “access” to the Internet, and “filling” their prisons with people seeking “democratic” rights.
Dictator Raul Castro says the United States owes Cuba billions for the “damage” he claims the United States “inflicted” with John F. Kennedy’s “embargo.” That, by the way, is an “admission” that the embargo worked “contrary” to Susan Rice’s falsities.
Americans have been “imprisoned” by Cuba on flimsy and false charges for years, even as more than five dozen “convicted and/or charged” American criminals “live and work” in Cuba under the dictatorship’s “protection and on its payroll.”
President Obama had fantastic “leverage” and opportunities to “negotiate” terms with Cuba that “benefited” the Cuban people by making the “dictatorship” embark on new “paradigms of governance” that would benefit the Cuban people.
That is, if he had “seriously” negotiated for “freedom” for all.
If you, Raul Castro, want the embargo ended then quit arresting people every weekend when they march for free speech and democratic elections. Raul, if you want Americans to come to Cuba to visit and spend money, fine, but you have to allow American communications companies to enter Cuba with their modern services and an Internet that you do not interfere with.
If you want Americans to come to Cuba for any reason, for business or tourism, you must put every American criminal hiding in Cuba on a plane we will send at no cost to Cuba to bring them back escorted by U.S. Marshals. That includes the cop killer and the terror bomber.
If you want full diplomatic relations with the United States and unrestricted trade relations, you must allow full ingress and egress to Cuba for Cubans.
You must compensate all claims proved for property expropriated by your government of Americans, American and foreign companies, Cubans and Cuban companies on January 1st, 1959, or after.
If you move your people towards freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of association, political freedom, free political parties and elections, and return all convicted or charged American criminals to the United States, President Obama will visit Cuba and watch a baseball game with you.
Unfortunately, we do not have a president who wanted “anything” from Cuba. He only wants future “leftist” historians to write well about his “presidency” like the mainstream American “press” does as he visits Cuba.
That mainstream press agrees with his Cuban “gift” policy as it does with his closing our naval base at “Guantanamo Bay” and its prison for “enemy” combatants of the ongoing war on “terrorism.”
The president’s people point to public “polling” that says a majority of Americans “support” his one-sided gifts to the Cuban dictatorship.
What they don’t “mention” is that Congress is the “only” institution that can “relieve, change, or end the embargo.”
Obama can “lift” visit restrictions on people, he can “allow” airlines to go to Cuba because only he can “deal” with foreign countries but he cannot “end the embargo” on his own.
Fridge magnets, including one of Barack Obama, at a market in Havana ahead of the US president’s visit.
One can only “hope” that the President of the United States is “uncomfortable” in Havana while Cubans are in “prison” for the crime of “asking” for freedom.
The president could have “forced” the Cuban government to “ease” restrictions on freedom that Americans “cherish” and he did not.
He simply isn’t “capable” of being a “freedom fighter” even on a “philosophical” level.
Viva Cuba Libre!
