I said in my live interview today to @globalnews Radio in Canada that current US - #Russia conflict is most serious since violent overthrow of #Ukrainian government in 2014, subsequent #Russian annexation of Crimea in response to it & start of the war in #Donbas
@globalnews #Russia regards promised #NATO membership of #Ukraine & Western weapons deployment there as threat similarly to US during Caribbean crisis when Soviet Union deployed missiles with nuclear weapons in #Cuba. Russia also opposes policies of #Ukrainian governments since 2014.
My research suggests that possibility of war between #Russia & #Ukraine increased significantly. However, crisis in unlikely to reach level of #Cuban Missile Crisis. #Biden & other US & NATO officials confirmed that there won’t be direct military involvement of US & NATO.

Have you ever heard of Operation Northwood? It was a false flag operation concocted by the #US Joint Chiefs of Staff in March 1962, after the Chief of Operations of the ‘Cuba Project’, asked them for pretexts to justify #US military intervention in #Cuba. tinyurl.com/2mecvjp7
This document tinyurl.com/2mecvjp7 proposes shocking acts of terrorism to be carried out by #CIA and other US agencies against US military and civilian targets, and Cubans, to be blamed on the Cuban government.
“World opinion, and the #UnitedNations forum should be favorably affected by developing the international image of the #Cuban government as rash and irresponsible, and as an alarming and unpredictable threat to the peace of the Western hemisphere.” tinyurl.com/2mecvjp7

“The #Cuban regime requests a joint sanction of seven years of deprivation of liberty for the political prisoner Luis Robles Elizástigui, who has been accused of the crimes of "enemy propaganda and resistance" for peacefully protesting for the freedom of rapper Denis Solís.”
“The Cuban without political affiliation and convicted of exercising his right to freedom of expression has received beatings, threats, and has not been able to access the medicines he needs, inside the Combinado del Este prison.”

#Venezuela A thread from me, a former #WhiteHouse #NationalSecurity staffer:(1 of 7)
This article from #Florida- @MiamiHerald - miamiherald.com/news/nation-wo… miamiherald.com/news/nation-wo… 🇻🇪...
2. As a Latina, Intelligence Officer & really just someone with common sense who was in the #WhiteHouse, watching @realDonaldTrump’s complete mismanagement & failure on this #Venezuela nation building attempt, first hand, has been upsetting from day one.
3.@realDonaldTrump doesn't actually care about #Libertad & he cares even less about @jguaido —I know Trump championed him as a leader, then called him "weak", a "joke" & proceeded to turn his back on the entire situation. The people of #Venezuela & its neighbors are on their own.

Cosa Rica: The Beauty of Cuban Women

Candles. Spotlights. A pool. Dance. Theater. Maybe kabuki?
Graffiti walls. An altar. A shrine.
Electronic music. Dancers. Women. Latino, Cuban women ...

Woman-statues. Walking statues. There’s some beatnik-like ambiance. A woman walks and places herself on the chair. A black woman in a fancy yellowish dress. A white paper flower hat in her hair. The sea wind blows her skirt and her flower hat...

..A trumpet sounds. Or a trombone. Maybe a saxophone. A man dressed like a woman. Is the woman beside me also a model? Cuban drums. Some Afro-Cuban, Latin jazz. The manwoman sweeps the floor around us. The manwoman looks concerned. ...

New #FIUCubaPoll shows that despite 54% of #Cuban-Americans still support the continuation of the embargo, majorities also support the temporary suspension of sanctions during the Covid-19 pandemic, something the Trump administration has refused to do.
Of the 1,002 #Cuban-Americans surveyed in the 2020 #FIUCubaPoll, 57% support the temporary suspension of trade sanctions on Cuba during the Covid-19 crisis; 69% support food sales and 71% support medicine sales to Cuba by U.S. companies. (starting thread) /1

The race in Florida must be super tight if after three and half years, and imposing all sorts of failed sanctions that mostly harm #Cuban families, Trump FINALLY denies his country club cronies their secret stashes of Cuban rum and cigars. miamiherald.com/news/nation-wo…
The measures are low hanging fruit that allow Trump to say he's tightening the squeeze on #Cuba and won't allow anyone to go sing to Castro when he visits Miami on Friday. In short term they'll have no practical impact since Cuba is still not accepting US travelers due to Covid.
Once travel resumes, no more rum & cigar souvenirs as in the Bush and early Obama years; no lodging in any hotels, although flights are already so limited that the private casa particular market should be able to absorb demand; and...

1 - While the #UnitedStates was working on breaking ties with @WHO for their unacceptable response to the #COVID-19 pandemic, communist lobbyists began developing plans to present the #NobelPeacePrize to government representatives of the #Cuban #dictatorship.
2 - #Cuba has enslaved its doctors for years through the support of communist governments and the intermediation of @paho, which only pays #CubanDoctors approximately 18% of their due salaries and hands over the remainder to the #Cuban #dictatorship.
3 - It is the time to reconsider the role of these organizations in the #World and question who the people in charge really are and which countries are influencing their actions.

For every $1 in remittances sent to #Cuba, in order to deny a 0.13 tax to the Cuban military, the Trump administration intends to block the other 0.84 meant to go to Cuban families.

All in the name of “supporting the Cuban people.”

It really doesn't get dumber than that.
I’ll be the first to say the #Cuban government should lift its tax on remittances. But you have to be pretty thick in the skull to think this measure by the State Dept will encourage them to do it.
This will only open the market for third-country money transfer agencies to fill and incentivize money laundering through informal channels. Not to mention pile on even greater hardship on the Cuban people who this farcical policy pretends to “support.”
