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 are.......you know....."birds of a feather..flock together".

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

TYRANTS ARE NEVER SATISFIED . INSTEAD OF RESPECT , BO GETS MORE IN HIS FACE BOLD DEMANDS . AND , OF COURSE , HE GIVES IN . THE NEW AMERICAN FOREIGN POLICY .

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.

ALERT ALERT

OMG!!! Ruth Bader Ginsburg Voted Best Real-Life Hero At MTV Awards

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Monday was crowned the best real-life hero at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The 86-year old judge — whose 2015 biopic The Notorious RBG help cement her as a cultural icon among Liberals — beat out tennis star Serena Williams, WWE wrestler Roman Reigns, and comedian Hannah Gadsby to take him the award.

Though it wasn’t a clean sweep for Ginsburg last night.

The RGB documentary lost the “Best Fight” category for “Ruth Bader Ginsburg vs. Inequality” to “Captain Marvel vs. Minn-Erva.”

The justice was absent from the ceremony in Santa Monica, California.

Last December, Ginsburg had surgery to remove cancerous growths on her left lung. She was released from the hospital in New York four days later and recuperated at home.

Earlier this year, Ginsburg missed three days of arguments, the first time that’s happened since she joined the court in 1993. Still, she was allowed to participate using court briefs and transcripts.

Ginsburg has had two previous bouts with cancer, in 1999 and 10 years later.

Flashback: Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Pregnant Woman Is Not A ‘Mother’

Celebrated liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg argued in an opinion released Tuesday that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.”

“[A] woman who exercises her constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy is not a ‘mother’,” Ginsburg wrote in a footnote, which in turn responded to another footnote in the 20-page concurring opinion by Justice Clarence Thomas in the Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc. case.

As Breitbart News’ legal editor Ken Klukowski reported, the case concerned a law signed by then-Governor (now Vice President) Mike Pence of Indiana in 2016, which required that the remains of an aborted fetus (or baby) be disposed of by cremation or burial. The law also prohibited abortion on the basis of sex, race, or disability alone.

The Court upheld the first part of the law, but declined to consider the selective-abortion ban until more appellate courts had ruled on it.

In his lengthy opinion — which delighted pro-life advocates, and distressed pro-choice activists — Thomas wrote that “this law and other laws like it promote a State’s compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics.” He traced the racist and eugenicist beliefs of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, and warned that the Court would one day need to wrestle with abortion as form of racial discrimination.

In a footnote, Thomas attacked Ginsberg’s dissenting opinion, which argued the Court should not have deferred to the legal standard used by the litigants in the lower courts, but should have subjected the Indiana law to a more difficult standard instead, since it impacted “the right of [a] woman” to an abortion.

Ginsburg cited no legal authority for her claim that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.” The claim that a fetus is not a child is central to pro-choice arguments.
