Obama forgets the law while claiming to open up Cuban trade


So how does the Emperor plan on implementing his new Cuban policy? By stepping on Congress and implementing his new love affair with the Cuban Communist regime? I checked out a number of the links given by wikipedia and they appear correct. Oh, the pen and phone. That is how he can do it so he thinks. The latest issue to divide us. And please Pope. Stay out of our affairs. While everyone hails your kind pastoral approach, your background speaks volumes. What are you doing about human rights? Murdered Christians? First the pope and then the law.Two posts today.

Pope Francis role during Argentina’s ‘Dirty War’ come back again?

Will Francis’s role during Argentina’s ‘Dirty War’ come back to haunt him?

From 1973 to 1979, a period that overlapped with military dictatorship lasting from 1976 to 1983, Francis served as the top Argentine Jesuit official. During that time, the Catholic Church remained silent in the face of widespread human rights violations during the country’s so-called “Dirty War,” an effort by the military government to root out dissent by torture, murder, and disappearances.

.Bergoglio has been criticized by the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) for his behavior during the 1976-1983 dictatorship in Argentina, with some journalists claiming that he prevented human rights groups from finding political prisoners by imprisoning them in his vacation home.

Back to post:

Currently, the Cuban embargo is enforced mainly with six statutes: the Trading with the Enemy Act of 1917, the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, the Cuba Assets Control Regulations of 1963, the Cuban Democracy Act of 1992, the Helms–Burton Act of 1996, and the Trade Sanctions Reform and Export Enhancement Act of 2000.[2] The Cuban Democracy Act was signed into law in 1992 with the stated purpose of maintaining sanctions on Cuba so long as the Cuban government refuses to move toward “democratization and greater respect for human rights”.[3] In 1996, Congress passed the Helms–Burton Act, which further restricted United States citizens from doing business in or with Cuba, and mandated restrictions on giving public or private assistance to any successor government in Havana unless and until certain claims against the Cuban government are met. In 1999, U.S. President Bill Clinton expanded the trade embargo even further by also disallowing foreign subsidiaries of U.S. companies to trade with Cuba. In 2000, Clinton authorized the sale of “humanitarian” U.S. products to Cuba.

    I hope he manages to open relations with Cuba. It’s time to end this ridiculous stalemate. If we can make nice-nice with China and Vietnam, we can make nice-nice with Cuba.

        Well, opening relations is a far cry from normalization. That’s a long ways off no matter you look at it.

    So, he wants to pick a fight with Russia, create chaos in the Middle East, screw over Israel, place sanctions on Cuba’s puppet,Venezuela, but he wants to normalize relations with Cuba. If somebody can make sense out of all of that, please enlighten me. Please!

      The one good think is Kerry is excited about his new gig in Cuba. This should give Israel a rest with any luck.

    We always knew he was a commie sympathizer and now he has proven it in my opinion. This is nothing but an extension of his Executive amnesty…

    It’s a bit early for wishing you a Merry Christmas, but I can’t believe it is so close. Wife and daughter will be leaving soon for Ormond Beach for 92 year old Grandma’s. One dog and cat to vet today, the rest over the next couple of days. Have to have them checked out before leaving with me to make my stand ’til they return. 🙂
    So I do wish you and yours and all who come here to read and post…Merry Christmas.
