Biden and Lasso at the White House

The electoral results of the sectional elections in Ecuador, held on February 5, are still generating an impact.

February 28, 2023

There is no mistake about it. With the February 27 release of the State Department Country Report on Terrorism 2021, President Biden accepted ownership of the illegal U.S. economic war on Cuba, following suit with Donald Trump, George Bush, and Ronald Reagan’s hawkishness with the false designation of Cuba as a so-called “State Sponsor of Terror.” (more…)

US President Joe Biden is a self-confessed Catholic. He regularly attends the religious services of his congregation and, like every US president, he has sworn to his office by placing his hand on the bible.

Mark Zuckerberg’s boys were very active against Cuba in 2022. More than one Cuban page was censored by the Palo Alto team without plausible explanations.
