The Cubans Grovel

Socialist Cuba is worried, as it should be. After decades of progressive hardline rule, the island is an economic and political basket case.

Cuba, Pick a Lane

Hurricane Irma has reportedly caused extensive damage in the Caribbean, including Cuba. Yet whatever damage Irma may have caused in Cuba, it pales in comparison to what socialism has been inflicting since 1959 on the Cuban people and the Western Hemisphere.
