Castro Berates Obama At UN: Give Us Back Guantanamo

President Barack Obama, left, shakes hands with Cuban President Raul Castro during the official memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela at FNB Stadium, Dec. 10, 2013, in Johannesburg. Chip Somodevilla/Getty ImagesTaking back Guantanamo Bay has long been a priority of Cuba, and Monday at the United Nations President Raul Castro demanded that President Barack Obama return the “illegally occupied” territory.

In his Monday speech, Castro called for the U.S. to drop its embargo on the small nation. Guantanamo Bay was just one of the other requirements Castro maintained was necessary for renormalization of relations between the two countries, NBC News reports.

Castro also wants the U.S. to stop radio and TV broadcasts into Cuba and to issue compensation for the long-standing, 53-year-old embargo, which has resulted in the “human and economic damage [Cubans] still endure.”

But while the White House has moved forward attempts at reconciliation, one issue that appears to be off the table is Guantanamo Bay. That hasn’t changed since February.

Plus tons of money.  Does this ever stop?  Why do we owe them anything?

Barry Hussein's (pbuh) is probably trying to figure how to make that happen right now. Liberals feel right at home with the communists.

Yes, that's because it is who Liberal Progressives know....."birds of a feather..flock together".

All they want is the one million dollar hockey stadium out tax dollars paid for.


14 months left of this worst prez ever! Please pray for God to help our nation like there is no tomorrow; cuz there may not be with this moron in charge.

Wish I could give you 10 thumbs up on that one.

How about all the million that the Castro government rob from Americans and Cubans. Tit for tat old boy. Also, what he means about the embargo it is a smoke screen. There is no embargo, what he just wants is credit that he would not pay back. He want us to hand him cash, so that he continues his repression against the Cuban people and stay in power. If they owned money to the rest of the world, why do you think he would pay back America. It is elementary Watson.

Annex Cuba, make it a State.

I have no earthly Idea what Raul is crying about unless he is attempting to impress his brother.  He wants money for the embargo?  Raul had to know what was happening over the years since the overthrow of Batiste under his brothers rule.  After all Raul was the head honcho of Fidel's G2 operations for years.  The US had acquired exclusive rights to Gitmo and as part of the agreement $3000 monthly was paid to Cuba for many years as agreed compensation for access to that real estate.  That equates to one large bundle of checks over the years that were just stockpiled.  The US had large amounts of cash resources in Cuba at the time which were confiscated during the over throw.  Not to count all of the US business interests  and other assets that were in Cuba at that time. Some businesses used very ingenious  ways to ship some cash resources back to the US just to help cut the losses.   I see Raul's demands for 1.1 Trillion dollars as nothing but a money grab in attempts to infuse some finances to start rebuilding a beautiful Island that was left to decay. Of course he is implying that the US Embargoes were the reason for Cuba's woes.  In fact one of the main reasons was the Missile Crises and the Russian influence that was started at this Nations back door.  The USA has to take preventative measures to protect this Nation.  The Soviet weaponry that he was working to establish in the Island is but a mere 90 miles away and Our Nation had to take defensive measures for its own Sovereignty, I am not saying that the US instituted the best course of action during this period of time, however, neither did Cuba. I do believe that the reestablishment of political relations is a good thing and it is really over due.  The Cuba people are good fun loving people as I feel the American as I believe the Americans also are. The thing is after 50 plus years of separation it is time to just bury the hatchet and enter into a compatible association without marking the spot where the hatchet was buried.  It seems as though this would be the best policy, just start afresh and proceed forward with a clean slate.         

attempts at reconciliation? Lmao. Screw'em. Hell, screw everybody who spits on America. The whole world wants our country and our money.

This is the way the big boys accumulate their wealth. Take it from the US pile and stash it in numbered accounts in Switzerland  for the use of their dynasties. BO will raid our treasury and give it to the Castro Bros. with a kick back to his secret funds.

Goodbye 2020: Clinton Ordered By Federal Judge To Submit To Questioning

( – Just when Hillary Clinton began hinting that she’s ready to run again in 2020, she has been ordered by a federal judge to submit to questioning about the use of her private email server to convey classified documents during her time as Secretary of State.

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan made the order as part of a lawsuit from conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.

“Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions — including key q’s about the setting up of her email system,” wrote Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a tweet following the ruling.

BREAKING: Judicial Watch announced today that, following JW's court battle, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ruled that Hillary Clinton must answer – under oath – two additional questions on her controversial email system within 30 days.

Tom Fitton  @TomFitton

Breaking: Court rules late today Hillary Clinton must answer more email questions -- including key q's about the setting up of her email system. Court denied our request to unseal vid depositions of Clinton aides. Great work by Michael Bekesha!

As a statement from Judicial Watch explains, the ruling is the latest development in the group’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, which they began to discover why former deputy chief of staff to Mrs. Clinton, Huma Abedin, was allowed to work at the State Department while also engaged in “outside employment.”

Clinton now has 30 days to answer two key questions from a list of 25 questions composed by Judicial Watch.

The questions the judge selected are:

1) “Describe the creation of the system, including who decided to create the system, the date it was decided to create the system, why it was created, who set it up, and when it became operational.”

During your October 22, 2015 appearance before the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on Benghazi, you testified that 90 to 95 percent of your emails “were in the State’s system” and “if they wanted to see them, they would certainly have been able to do so.” Identify the basis for this statement, including all facts on which you relied in support of the statement, how and when you became aware of these facts, and, if you were made aware of these facts by or through another person, identify the person who made you aware of these facts.

This new development is huge because it means that the two critical scandals from Clinton’s time in the State Department, her private email server and the Benghazi attacks, are facing fresh scrutiny in both the legal system and the court of public opinion.

And while Clinton likely had little chance of any run in 2020, this makes it even less likely she will stand even a shred of a chance.

We’ve have got to hope and pray that at long last, this leads to the long overdue criminal charges we’ve all been waiting to see.
