King Warns GOP: If Paul Wins, ‘Iranian Nuclear Missiles in Cuba’

National Review Online (blog)/ By Robert Costa/
Rep. Steve King, an influential Republican congressman from western Iowa, has not endorsed a presidential candidate. But in the final sprint toward Tuesday’s caucuses, he is urging conservatives to stay away from Rep. Ron Paul of Texas.
King is adamant that Paul’s “isolationist” views are a threat to the country.
“In these last few days, the public and especially the activists in Iowa need to understand what Ron Paul would do if he became commander-in-chief,” King says. ‘I don’t think some of the responsible caucus-goers, many of whom support him, understand what he means on [foreign policy] and what he would do as president, pulling us out of places around the world.”
As Iowans make their final decision, King worries that Paul’s popularity on fiscal issues could overshadow his “blind spot” on foreign policy. “Our presence around the globe has been paid for by a tremendous amount of blood and treasure,” he says. “We are the force for security around the globe. If we had a commander-in-chief who pulled back military operations and brought it all back to the United States, and took a position that we would not intervene in foreign conflicts and only if attacked on our shores, there would be a huge power vacuum.”
“That giant sucking sound would draw in the Chinese, the Russians, Hugo Chavez, and others up into our shores and into the Caribbean,” King says, speculating on a Paul administration. “To paint an image of what I think it looks like under a Ron Paul presidency, it would be Iranian nuclear missiles placed in Cuba and Katyusha rockets in Tijuana. Neither of those situations would bother Ron Paul and that’s a calamity, that’s catastrophic.”  More >>

US Net Investment Income

krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/
How’s that for a sexy blog post title? But this actually matters.
I’ve been arguing that the nature of US debt now is not, despite appearances, all that different from debt post-World War 2, when we pretty much entirely owed the money to ourselves. Now, of course, some of the money is owed to foreigners; but as I pointed out, America has large assets abroad, not too much less than its liabilities.
But wait, there’s more. American assets. often taking the form of foreign subsidiaries of US corporations, earn a higher rate of return than US liabilities — especially now, when there’s a lot of foreign money parked in Treasuries, but this was true even before the crisis. As a result, income from US-owned assets abroad — the blue line below — consistently exceeds payments on foreign-owned assets in the United States, the red line:
Again, if your image is that we’re deeply in hock to foreigners, that our extravagance has condemned us to a future of debt peonage, you’re wrong.

$6.3 Trillion Wiped Off Global Markets in 2011


cnbc.com/
Almost $6.3 trillion was erased from global stock markets this year as the euro zone financial crisis reverberated across the world in the latter half of 2011, calling into question the future of the world’s largest currency bloc.
Global stock market capitalization dropped 12.1 percent to $45.7 trillion according to Bloomberg data, while the euro ended the year as the worst performing major currency after finally starting to succumb to the continent’s financial and economic woes in December.
The euro had proved resilient for much of the year – burning hedge funds that bet on a steeper decline – but on Friday touched a 10-year low against the Japanese yen, and is near lows against the dollar last touched a year ago.
“Investors were more optimistic at the start of the year, but as the year progressed they were forced to come to grips with the debt levels in the western world,” said Navtej Nandra, the international head of Morgan Stanley’s asset management arm.
The S&P 500 is flat this year while the FTSE 100 has only dropped 5.5 percent. But the Eurofirst 300 gauge of blue-chip European companies has lost 11 percent, led by the French and Italian exchanges. The MSCI Emerging Markets index has shed a fifth of its value despite strong growth in China and other emerging markets.
Asian equity markets were hit particularly hard with Japan’s Nikkei index losing 17.3 percent this year, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index 20 percent and the Shanghai Composite 22 percent. More >>

Finalmente, ¿qué es lo que está mal en Cuba?

Desde el sitio de Ichikawa
Emilio Ichikawa/
Si usted revisa las votaciones en la ONU. Si lee los informes de la Organización Mundial de la Salud, de la OEA, de Amnistía Internacional, de la UNESCO, del Comité Olímpico… incluso si repasa los Informes para la Ayuda a una Cuba Libre que firmaron Powell y Rice, comprobará que el juicio que hacen sobre el tipo de sociedad existente en la isla no es negativo.
Ahora bien, ya hay más objeciones cuando se habla del “sistema” o “régimen”; es decir, de la mecánica a través de la cual se ha obtenido el resultado.
Y muchas más críticas cuando se considera “el gobierno” que ha encabezado esos procesos.
Y todavía más lío con el liderato, con el mando.
Hay por lo menos cuatro niveles para encarar la pregunta titular. Hoy por hoy, mucha de la gente que está empujando para sacar a los Castro del poder no vería tan mal que el modelo social instaurado bajo su dirección se mantenga. Con sus resultados. De hecho, el cambio que buena parte del exilio, la disidencia y la oposición tiene en mente se reduce a una Perestroika exitosa. Más remoto aún: hay evidencias de que con el socialismo liberal húngaro o checoslovaco podrían tirar… siempre que cambien algunas caras.
Si esto fuera así, el “cambio” en Cuba no sería una cuestión de fondo. Acaso solo un tema de poder. O de antipatía.

US Army Facing Big Challenges in 2012

Military.com/
Not one, but two changes of command took place at the Army's highest level this past year. Gen. Martin Dempsey measured his time as the Army chief of staff in weeks rather than years before President Obama nominated him to chair the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
The transition in the service's top office proved to be a prominent example of the larger transition the Army experienced in 2011. Rather than surges, the Army is preparing for a major drawdown. Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno talks about potential future operations in the Pacific almost as much as actual ongoing ones in the Middle East.
Plenty of challenges lie ahead for the Army in 2012. They include the shrinking defense budget; hopes for a reinvigorated acquisition system; settling on a camouflage pattern; and battling the traumatic brain injuries that continue to ravage the force. Full Story >>

Leftist Talking Points of 2011

American Thinker - Matt Palumbo/
Talking points of the left conjured up this year have been about as numerous as they have been wrong.  Many of these talking points previously existed, but never before have they been used with such frequency, and never before have they received so much media attention.
First off, who better to call for higher taxes than a billionaire himself?  Warren Buffett's claim that he was paying a lower tax rate than his secretary helped the left build a case for higher taxes.  After all, even if the average person previously did not want taxes on anyone raised, Americans certainly do not want to be paying a higher rate than a billionaire is.  Then came the analysis.  As the center-left Brookings Institute showed, of the 237,000 millionaires filing taxes in 2009, only around 1,000 paid a smaller percentage in taxes than their secretaries (or a person earning the same salary as the average secretary).  As it would later turn out, these people are the only ones on Buffett's radar.  In a CNBC appearance, Buffett clarified his position, saying:
[M]y program would be on the very high incomes that are taxed very low - not just high incomes, not just some guy making $50 million playing baseball, his taxes won't change.  Make $50 million appearing on TV, his income won't change.  But if they make a lot of money and they pay a very low tax rate, like me, it would be changed by a minimum tax that would only bring them up to what the other people pay.
Buffett then estimated that his plan would apply to only around 50,000 people, but as the Brookings Institute estimate showed, Buffett is far-off in his estimation.

Brain health, 'silent strokes' studied

CNN.com/
New findings in Alzheimer's disease support longstanding notions of what doctors have preached for years. The studies look at associations, not causes, but they further scientists' pursuit of preventing the fatal brain disease.
It's no secret that healthy diet high in omega-3 fatty acids and rich in vitamins found in fruits and vegetables is good for your overall health and longevity.
In a study released this week in the journal Neurology, scientists associate these fish-rich diets and foods with high levels of vitamins B, C, D, and E nutrients with increased cognitive performance and decreased risk of Alzheimer’s disease, or "brain shrinkage."
People who consume diets high in trans fats, primarily found in fast foods, fried and frozen foods, were more likely to have brain shrinkage and lower scores on the thinking and memory tests than people with diets low in trans fats, the study found.
This is the first study using nutrient biomarkers in the blood to look at the effect of diet on memory, thinking skills and brain volume, researchers said. Similar diet studies in the past primarily depended on participants' memory recall and questionnaires.
“These results need to be confirmed, but obviously it is very exciting to think that people could potentially stop their brains from shrinking and keep them sharp by adjusting their diet,” said study author Gene Bowman, assistant professor of neurology at the Oregon Health and Science University, in a news release from the American Academy of Neurology.  More >>

Canada's Fracking Struggles

The Huffington Post News Editors/ Nicholas Kusnetz, ProPublica
Early last year, deep in the forests of northern British Columbia, workers for Apache Corp. performed what the company proclaimed was the biggest hydraulic fracturing operation ever.
The project used 259 million gallons of water and 50,000 tons of sand to frack 16 gas wells side by side. It was "nearly four times larger than any project of its nature in North America," Apache boasted.
The record didn't stand for long. By the end of the year, Apache and its partner, Encana, topped it by half at a neighboring site.
As furious debate over fracking continues in the United States, it is instructive to look at how a similar gas boom is unfolding for our neighbor to the north.
To a large extent, the same themes have emerged as Canada struggles to balance the economic benefits drilling has brought with the reports of water contamination and air pollution that have accompanied them.
The Canadian boom has differed in one regard: The western provinces' exuberant embrace of large-scale fracking offers a vision of what could happen elsewhere if governments clear away at least some of the regulatory hurdles to growth. More >>

Canada’s economy second-best among G7: BMO

Financial Post/

Canada has scored a solid “A” for the second-best economic performance among G7 countries in 2011 from BMO Capital Markets, however the countries have been graded on a serious bell curve as much of the industrialized world suffered through a trying year.
With a score of 81.6 on BMO’s Economic Performance Indicator (EPI) index, Canada ranks behind only Germany at 89.2 among the G7 group of nations.
“Still, it was up just a tick [0.1 index points] from last year, which represented the lowest grade for Canada since 1994,” Doug Porter, deputy chief economist with BMO, said in a report.
The index is produced by subtracting inflation, jobless rates, budget deficits, current account deficits and credit ratings from a hypothetical perfect score of 100. Surpluses are treated as zero and the indicator knocks off three points for each notch a country is rated below AAA status by Standard & Poor’s.
Canada benefited from an improved budget deficit and lower unemployment, offset by higher inflation. Based on forecasts, BMO expects Canada’s score to improve slightly to 83.3 in 2012.
Elsewhere, the United States scored the second-worst of the G7 with a 71.7 due to pronounced joblessness and a high budget deficit.
Italy, not surprisingly, scored the worst of the G7, at 69.6 due largely to a series of credit downgrades on its debt.
Overall, the OECD scored a middling 76.3, while euroland came in at 76.7.
Canada’s second-place finish comes amid widespread weakness in North America and Europe, with investors and economists now setting their sights and hopes firmly on China and other emerging markets to drive growth in 2012.
China, seen as a key driver of growth in 2012, scored a relatively impressive 80.3.
Lowlights include Greece, with a staggering 11.6 as the struggling country was dinged 51 points on its credit rating while also tackling a 16.6% unemployment rate and a severe budget deficit.
Portugal (43), Spain (56.2) and Ireland (55.8) also fared poorly.
All-time, the best performer was Japan, posting a near-perfect score in 1988. Canada’s best showing in the past 40 years was 91.8 in 2007.

Occupy Wall Street Gets Big “Thumbs Ups” from Third World Revolutionaries

New Zeal Blog/

The Occupy Wall Street movement got big cheers at a recent international gathering of “resistance fighters,” mainly third world communist parties and front organizations, in Dhakar, Bangladesh.
A delegation attended from the ruling communist party of North Korea, plus a cadre from the ultra-militant US Workers World Party.
The Third International Conference of the International Anti-Imperialist and Peoples Solidarity Coordinating Committee met in Dhaka, Bangladesh, from Nov. 27 to 29. The conference’s theme was “Imperialist Attack: Economic, Political, Cultural and Military Aggression and Occupation.” Special reference was made to imperialist aggression in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, Afghanistan, Cuba and the Democratic Peoples ­Republic of Korea.

The international program opened with an outdoor rally of 20,000 militants organized by the Socialist Party of Bangladesh, a co-sponsor of the assembly. It was followed by a militant march through the capital city’s crowded streets.
The 800 official delegates represented anti-imperialist forces from 24 countries. There was strong representation from South Asia, including from Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Two women guerrilla fighters were sent from Nepal. The DPRK sent a delegation. Resistance organizations were represented from Middle Eastern and African countries, including Lebanon, Palestine, Jordan, Sudan, Iran, Turkey, Algeria, Morocco and Chad.
Straight from Tahrir Square in Cairo, an Egyptian delegate gave greetings from the revolutionary people of Egypt. A representative from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine militantly greeted the assembly. Additionally, representatives came from Europe, the United States and Canada.
Manik Mukerjee, Secretary General of the IAPSCC, gave the keynote speech. He said, “Today we are witnessing … throughout the world, including in the Middle East, North Africa, Latin America, and even in the metropolitan capitalist countries and in the very citadel of imperialism, waves of people’s movements surging forth.”
Sara Flounders, a Workers World Party Secretariat member, who is on the ­IAPSCC’s executive committee, expressed solidarity with the conference at a time when people of the world are rising up. When she mentioned Occupy Wall Street, the “crowd roared.”
Sara Flounders’ party is neck deep in the Occupy movement, especially in centers such as New York, Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles and the Bay Area.
The mood of the gathering was optimistic. Participants definitely saw the tide of history surging their way.  More >>

The Deceptions of Julian Assange, WikiLeaks, and Ron Paul

By: Cliff Kincaid
Accuracy in Media
A May 24 Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) Frontline program quoted WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange as saying he’d never had any contact with Bradley Manning and that he had no information indicating that the former Army intelligence analyst was the source of the classified U.S. intelligence information released by WikiLeaks.
On December 19, Frontline posted this follow-up information, “New Evidence of Assange-Manning Link,” and came clean in acknowledging that the new evidence in the case casts the statements by Assange in serious doubt:
“In an interview last April with Frontline correspondent Martin Smith, Julian Assange flatly denied that he’d ever had any contact with Bradley Manning, the young Army private accused of leaking half a million classified documents to Assange’s WikiLeaks. Asked about the implication in online conversations apparently between Manning and ex-hacker Adrian Lamo that Manning had gone around WikiLeaks’ normal protocols and established a personal relationship with Assange, Assange was adamant, even suggesting that Manning might have been inflating himself to others by claiming a relationship that did not exist. ‘We don’t have sources that we know about. And I had never heard the name Bradley Manning before. I never heard the name Bradass87 before.’”
Manning had used the name “Bradass87” in online chats and bragged about engineering “possibly the largest data spillage in American history.”
The new evidence in the case, disclosed in Manning’s preliminary hearing, established a direct connection between Assange and Manning. Frontline noted that Army digital forensics contractor Mark Johnson, testifying in Manning’s pretrial hearing, “says that he found communications between Manning and a chat user named ‘Julian Assange’ on Manning’s personal computer and a phone number for Assange in Iceland…”
The evidence puts Manning and Assange “in a precarious legal position,” Frontline now acknowledges. In effect, the evidence demonstrates that they were engaged in what amounts to a conspiracy to steal classified information from U.S. Army computers. This is espionage.
As such, Assange may have been lying about his contact with Manning in order to avoid implicating himself in a conspiracy to violate the Espionage Act. The WikiLeaks founder, an Australian and convicted computer hacker, is facing deportation from Britain to Sweden on sex crimes charges. He could eventually face deportation to the U.S., if he is ever indicted by the Obama/Holder Justice Department.
Meanwhile, more statements from Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul defending WikiLeaks, the recipient of the largest release of classified information in American history, are starting to get media attention. These appearances included:
  • On the Fox Business Network Paul said, “This whole notion that Assange, who’s an Australian, that we want to prosecute him for treason. I mean, aren’t they jumping to a wild conclusion? This is media, isn’t it? I mean, why don’t we prosecute The New York Times or anybody that releases this?”
  • On the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives he said, “Is there not a huge difference between releasing secret information to help the enemy in a time of declared war, which is treason, and the releasing of information to expose our government lies that promote secret wars, death and corruption?”
  • Paul went on Twitter to declare that WikiLeaks was providing “truth.”   More >>

US base in Kyrgyzstan 'very dangerous': president

Spacewar.com/ by Staff Writers
Kyrgyzstan's new leader said Thursday it was "very dangerous" for his Central Asian nation to host a US military base at Bishkek airport and that it must become a fully civilian airport by 2014.
Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev said he told visiting US Assistant Secretary of State Robert Blake that the annual users fee of $150 million which Washington paid was not worth the risks involved.
"Perhaps they may think that Almazbek Atambayev is doing this under pressure from Russia," said Atambayev, a former prime minister who was elected president of the turbulent nation near Afghanistan last month.
"This is not the case," he stressed. "We want to transform Manas into a fully civilian airport. And keeping a military base for $150 million is slightly dangerous. Not slightly, but very dangerous."
The ex-Soviet republic is the world's only nation to house both a Russian and a US military base, reflecting a recent rivalry between Moscow and Washington in the energy-rich region.
Kyrgyzstan had threatened in 2009 to shut the US base down with immediate effect, a move that followed a massive new loan agreement with Russia.  More >>

Dangerous mix: Iran, oil, sanctions

Iran's Navy Commander Adm. Habibollah Sayari speaks to the press last week about Iran's 10-day military exercise.
Iran's Navy Commander Adm. Habibollah Sayari speaks to the press last week about Iran's 10-day military exercise
By Vali Nasr, Special to CNN
Editor's note: Vali Nasr is a professor of international politics at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy of Tufts University and senior fellow in foreign policy at the Brookings Institution.
(CNN) -- Iran has threatened that it will retaliate against the Obama administration's proposed new economic sanctions on Iran's oil exports by blocking the flow of oil from the Persian Gulf. "If sanctions are adopted against Iranian oil," said Iran's Vice President Mohammad Reza Rahimi, "not a drop of oil will pass through the Strait of Hormuz," the narrow waterway at the mouth of the Persian Gulf, which one-fifth of the world's oil supply passes through daily.
To drive the point home, Iran has started a 10-day naval exercise in the Persian Gulf to show off how it could use small speedboats and a barrage of missiles to combat America's naval armada. And the U.S. Navy has responded, in the words of a spokeswoman: "Anyone who threatens to disrupt freedom of navigation in an international strait is clearly outside the community of nations; any disruption will not be tolerated."
This is a significant escalation of tension between the United States and Iran, and the start of a more dangerous phase in the West's attempt to curtail Iran's nuclear program.
The new sanctions are a response to last month's alarming report on Iran's nuclear intentions by the United Nations nuclear watchdog agency, the International Atomic Energy Association. The Obama administration has ruled out military strikes to stop Iran's nuclear program in favor of tougher sanctions, which, once signed by the president, and if fully implemented, would sharply reduce Iran's oil revenue. The administration sees this added pressure on Iran's fragile economy as an effective alternative to military strikes.

The End Of Blogging?

Infidel Bloggers Alliance/

Honestly, nothing surprises me now.

From Politico:
The conservative and liberal blogospheres are unifying behind opposition to Congress’s Stop Online Piracy Act, with right-leaning bloggers arguing their very existence could be wiped out if the anti-piracy bill passes.

“If either the U.S. Senate’s Protect IP Act (PIPA) & the U.S. House’s Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) become law, political blogs such as Red Mass Group [conservative] & Blue Mass Group [liberal] will cease to exist,” wrote a blogger at Red Mass Group.

Some have asserted that the controversial measures would criminalize pages and blogs that link to foreign websites dedicated to online piracy. In particular, this has concerned search engines like Google, which could face massive liability if some form of the bill passes, some say.

“Of course, restrictions of results provided by Internet search engines amount to just that: prior restraint of their free expression of future results. Google and others, under SOPA, are told what they can or can’t publish before they publish it. Kill. The. Bill,” conservative blogger Neil Stevens argued at RedState....

Cuba Dissidents Confirm Pardon for Five Political Prisoners

At least five political prisoners are included among the more than 2,900 convicts released on the basis of a pardon announced by Cuba's Communist government last week, the opposition Cuban Commission on Human Rights and National Reconciliation said Tuesday.
Commission spokesman Elizardo Sanchez told Efe that he has confirmed the release of two additional political prisoners following Monday's freeing of Carlos Martinez Ballester, Yordani Martinez Carvajal and Walfrido Rodriguez Piloto.
The latest to be let out of jail are Iran Gonzalez Torna, who since 1990 has been serving a 25-year sentence for piracy, and Augusto Guerra Marquez, jailed for 10 years in 1996 for assault on authority.
The commission said previously that Martinez Carvajal and Rodriguez Piloto were sentenced for taking part in a public protest, while Martinez Ballester served four years of a 15-year sentence for the crime of "revealing state security secrets."
The mother of Carlos Martinez Ballester, Pilar Ballester, told Efe that her son was freed Sunday and is now back with his family in Havana.
None of the official media or sources on the island has reported the release of prisoners taking place following President Raul Castro's announcement Friday before parliament that it would occur in the coming days.
"At least 66 Cubans are still doing time for political reasons" including 16 who are free on parole, the human rights commission said Tuesday.
The unofficial number of people benefited by the pardon up to now is around 2,920.
Castro said that a humanitarian pardon would be granted to more than 2,900 convicts.
He also announced that 86 foreigners from 25 countries would be freed on condition that their native countries accept their repatriation.
The measure responds to "established policy" as well as to the pleas of "families and religious institutions," Gen. Castro said.
Not to be included in the pardon, except for certain exceptions, are criminals in jail for crimes of espionage, terrorism, homicide, drug trafficking, rape and other sexual offenses, and armed robbery.
The commission estimates that in Cuba there are between 70,000 and 80,000 people behind bars.

Boberia autocomplaciente/ MIAMI: oposición política y contestación cultural

En vísperas de Navidad, el Director General de “Radio Mambí” (emisora de Univisión Radio) y a la vez Presidente de Unidad Cubana, Armando Pérez Roura, invitó a su programa “La Mesa Redonda” al Sr. Diego Suárez, miembro de la Junta Directiva del Consejo por la Libertad de Cuba. Una organización muy valorada en la barra anticastrista; al menos formalmente. Suárez, una personalidad de prestigio en el sur de Florida, aprovechó la oportunidad para referirse a las acciones emprendidas por su organización en contra de la tiranía insular; y refirió alguna marcha y encuentro social, un concierto y otros gestos como su propia intervención radial.
Es decir, que lo que hace el Consejo por la Libertad de Cuba, cuyo liderazgo actual está compuesto -según declara su propio programa- por “reconocidos y exitosos empresarios, intelectuales, abogados y periodistas”, es contestación cultural, no oposición política. Dicho de otro modo: en ningún momento el Consejo por la Libertad de Cuba se ha propuesto la toma del poder en Cuba; el derrocamiento de Castro. Tampoco Unidad Cubana, que recién descubre la política.
“Educar” al pueblo cubano en los valores de la libertad; “promover” la ideología democrática; “gestar la sociedad civil” y recordarles a los opositores a Castro dentro de la isla que no están solos, constituyen el eje del Consejo por la Libertad de Cuba y de la mayoría de las organizaciones cubanas y cubanoamericanas de orientación anticastrista en los EEUU.

Russia test fires long-range missile with new warhead

spacewars.com/ By Staff Writers Moscow (AFP) Dec 27, 2011
Russia on Tuesday successfully test fired its long range ballistic missile RS-18 from its Baiknonur cosmodrome in Kazakhstan with a new warhead aimed at overcoming Western air defence systems, news agencies said.
The RS-18, a warhorse missile known to the West as Stilet (Stileto) that the Russian defence ministry has given a new lease of life, successfully hit its target on the Kamchatka Pensinsula on the Pacific, the reports quoted the defence ministry as saying.
The RIA Novosti news agency said that the RS-18 missile was now carrying a new warhead aimed at overcoming missile defence systems at a time of growing tensions over plans for a US missile shield in Europe.

All-American Muslim?

FrontPageMag/ By Bruce Bawer/

The other day the New York Times invited a few contributors to answer the question “Is America’s religious freedom under threat?”  The answer provided by Salam Al-Marayati, head of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), in an essay entitled “A Campaign Against Patriotic Muslims,” was a resounding yes – at least, that is, where his co-religionists are concerned.  Among Al-Marayati’s assertions: “religious freedom for the Muslim American is under threat….Today’s anti-Muslim rhetoric is eerily similar to the pre-Nazi rhetoric against Jews….Hate against Muslim children in elementary and secondary schools is on the rise.”  There is, insisted Al-Marayati, “an inquisition mentality toward America’s Muslims.”
People who have written books critical of Islam were described by Al-Marayati as “Muslim-haters” whose “work is reminiscent of the pre-Nazi propaganda…that regarded Judaism as a threat to Germany.”  Al-Marayati railed about the controversy over the TLC reality show “All-American Muslim,” which, he sneered, “became a controversy because it did not include a terrorist.”  America, he claimed, is being misled by those who, refusing to define American Islam by what he called its “mainstream,” insist rather on viewing it “through the lens of extremism.”  “I love my faith and I love my country,” maintained Al-Marayati at the end of his piece. “The fact that some readers still question which country I am referring to indicates a serious level of distrust toward Muslim Americans.”
This isn’t the first time Al-Marayati has pleaded for American non-Muslims to reject “Muslim-haters” and recognize the compatibility of the Koran and the Constitution, Islamic law and Jeffersonian democracy.  A couple of years ago he informed readers of the Huffington Post that “Islamic law has five goals accepted by all the scholars of Islam: securing and developing rights to life, expression, faith, family and property. That’s similar to the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness.”  The concluding flourish of his Huff Po article was almost identical to that of his Times piece: “I am an American.  I am a Muslim. I will work for a better future for all Americans and Muslims worldwide.”  More »

Filmed largely in Pakistan and Afghanistan, this two-part documentary series explores how a supposed ally stands accused by top CIA officers and Western diplomats of causing the deaths of thousands of coalition soldiers in Afghanistan.
It is a charge denied by Pakistan’s military establishment, but the documentary makers meet serving Taliban commanders who describe the support they get from Pakistan in terms of weapons, training and a place to hide.
The second film in this timely and enthralling two-part documentary series reveals how Britain and America discovered compelling evidence that Pakistan was secretly helping the Taliban and concluded they had been double-crossed.
It tells the story of how under President Obama the US has waged a secret war against Pakistan. Taliban commanders tell the film makers that to this day Pakistan shelters and arms them, and helps them kill Western troops – indeed one recently captured suicide bomber alleges he was trained by Pakistani intelligence.

Under Obama, an emerging global apparatus for drone killing

Abe Karem, inventor of the Predator drone, stands with the Albatross drone at Karem Air in Forest Lake, Calif. Karem built the Albatross in his garage. His work led to the invention of the Predator drone, used by military forces around the world.

The Obama administration’s counterterrorism accomplishments are most apparent in what it has been able to dismantle, including CIA prisons and entire tiers of al-Qaeda’s leadership. But what the administration has assembled, hidden from public view, may be equally consequential.
In the space of three years, the administration has built an extensive apparatus for using drones to carry out targeted killings of suspected terrorists and stealth surveillance of other adversaries. The apparatus involves dozens of secret facilities, including two operational hubs on the East Coast, virtual Air Force­ ­cockpits in the Southwest and clandestine bases in at least six countries on two continents.
Other commanders in chief have presided over wars with far higher casualty counts. But no president has ever relied so extensively on the secret killing of individuals to advance the nation’s security goals.
The rapid expansion of the drone program has blurred long-standing boundaries between the CIA and the military. Lethal operations are increasingly assembled a la carte, piecing together personnel and equipment in ways that allow the White House to toggle between separate legal authorities that govern the use of lethal force.
In Yemen, for instance, the CIA and the military’s Joint Special Operations Command pursue the same adversary with nearly identical aircraft. But they alternate taking the lead on strikes to exploit their separate authorities, and they maintain separate kill lists that overlap but don’t match. CIA and military strikes this fall killed three U.S. citizens, two of whom were suspected al-Qaeda operatives.
The convergence of military and intelligence resources has created blind spots in congressional oversight. Intelligence committees are briefed on CIA operations, and JSOC reports to armed services panels. As a result, no committee has a complete, unobstructed view.  More >>

Occupy Pravda: MSM Pretends Putin Faces Revolution

Boris Nemtsov-opposition leader, former deputy prime minister
PJ MEDIA-By Kim Zigfeld/
As former Russian First Deputy Prime Minister Boris Nemtsov looked out over a crowd of between 30,000 and 100,000 Russians (depending upon who was counting) on Christmas Eve in Moscow — just before calling for the ouster of Vladimir Putin — he saw a sea of tricolor black, white, and yellow flags before him, and a second sea of red flags.
The tricolor is the flag of the Russian Nazis, the skinheads who want to liquidate anyone who is not “Rooski” — the Russian word for “Russian” meaning white, Slavic, and Orthodox. Their poster boy is Vladimir Zhirinovsky.
The red flag represents the Communist Party, led by Gennady Zyuganov. Both men have sizeable contingents in the Russian parliament. Nemtsov doesn’t have a single seat, nor has he ever been allowed to place his name on the presidential ballot.
Nemtsov must have wondered why these two groups have played such a leading role in opposing Putin’s neo-Soviet dictatorship, rather than democratic-minded folks like himself. But he should know the answer, having probably recognized that his “organization” was incapable of accurately counting the members of the crowd, or of reporting with one voice in English why they were assembled or what they planned to achieve.
The crowd started booing Nemtsov.
Just days before the protest, tape recordings undoubtedly collected by operatives of the successor to the KGB — the FSB — had been played on a Kremlin-friendly TV network. The tapes revealed Nemtsov brutally criticized other members of the hodgepodge group that organized the protest, hurling all manner of personal abuse at them. The tapes were  an obvious attempt to discredit Nemtsov among his peers.
Nemtsov’s comments about his peers were perfectly justified, even somewhat measured — I was thrilled to read them. Due to its pernicious infighting, the opposition to Putin has been unable to agree on an achievable agenda, a leader, or even a name for their group. Yet: the fact that Nemtsov needed to make them — and didn’t realize he was being recorded — tells you pretty much all you need to know about the prospects of this so-called movement.
Which is just as well, because if you relied on the reporting of the mainstream media for this information, you’d be out of luck. The mainstream reports on the demonstrations against electoral fraud in Putin’s Russia have been nauseatingly wrong.
Granted, it’s hard being a Russia correspondent. You spend most of your time frozen, worried about getting brutalized or murdered, hated by the local denizens (who are famous for  xenophobia), and writing about a country most people couldn’t care less about. So when you get a whiff of a story that might thrust you onto the front pages, you’re pretty desperate to tell it.
Even if there isn’t really any story at all.

El extraño encuentro de Jesús Díaz con la muerte

Jesus Diaz
Por Servando González*
La repentina muerte de Jesús Díaz, un conocido escritor cubano en el exilio, ha desatado y seguirá desatando, una avalancha de artículos sobre su brillante carrera como escritor y editor. Pero hay un aspecto oculto de la vida de Jesús Díaz que no ha sido explorado todavía: su posible conexión con los servicios de inteligencia castristas. Este artículo explora esa conexión.
----------------------------
Conocí a Jesús Díaz a comienzos de la década de los sesenta, cuando un común amigo me lo presentó en la biblioteca de la Escuela de Letras de la Universidad de La Habana, donde Jesús a la sazón enseñaba filosofía marxista. Recuerdo que Jesús traía en sus manos el manuscrito de un libro de cuentos que había enviado al concurso de la revista Casa de las Américas, y me dio a leer un par de ellos, que devoré en unos minutos en la propia biblioteca. Recuerdo haberle dicho que tenía un premio en las manos. Resultó que no me equivoqué: Los años duros fue uno de los libros galardonados.
Después nuestros caminos se apartaron (yo ya había tomado el camino del exilio interior), y dejé de verlo luciendo su inseparable boina verde olivo por la Universidad. Alguien me comentó que Jesús había sido tronado cuando Raúl Castro disolvió la revista Pensamiento Crítico, y Jesús fue a parar al limbo cubano. Años después me enteré de que andaba por el ICAIC (Instituto Cubano de Arte e Industria Cinematográfica) que, junto con la Casa de la Américas, eran los refugios de los intelectuales y artistas castristas que por avatares del destino habían sido defenestrados.
Para reivindicarse, Díaz se esforzó en el ICAIC en probar más allá de toda duda su ortodoxia fidelista. No sólo realizó cortometrajes, como el panfleto propagandístico 55 Hermanos sobre un grupo de jóvenes exiliados y descendientes de exiliados cubanos en su primer visita a Cuba, que muestran su amor por Fidel Castro y su obra, sino que también escribió guiones y realizó películas de argumento. Ese esfuerzo lo reivindicó a los ojos del castrismo.
Tal parece que los graves problemas sociales, éticos y morales, por no mencionar los políticos y económicos, que confrontó la nación debido a los desatinos de Fidel Castro no lograron conmover las profundas raíces castristas de Jesús Díaz. En 1982, un año después de los vergonzosos sucesos del Mariel --reedición tropical de la persecución a los judíos al inicio de la Alemania nazi-- Díaz gana el Premio IV Concurso de la Sección de Cine, Radio y Televisión de la UNEAC (Unión de Escritores y Artistas de Cuba), por la realización y el guión de Polvo Rojo. En 1986 su estrella todavía brilla reluciente, y obtiene una Primera Mención de Argumento en el I Festival de Cultura Cubana en Burdeos por Lejanía, considerada la primera película que aborda el tema de las relaciones entre cubanos de la Isla y el exilio --desde un punto de vista castrista, por supuesto.
¿Cuál era la posición política de Jesús Díaz mientras vivió en la Cuba castrista? Todo indica que era totalmente ortodoxa. En su libro Cuba, Jacobo Timerman lo califica de "Stalinista", así como de ser "el escritor que mejor expresa la línea del partido". Timerman no exagera. Según algunos que siguieron de cerca su carrera, cuando Jesús Díaz era director de la revista El Caimán Barbudo hostigaba a aquellos a quienes consideraba que no tenían como él una posición castrista ortodoxa (extremista).
En una carta abierta a Carlos Monsiváis publicada en la revista electrónica La Jiribilla el 30 de Junio del 2001, los redactores (léase "compañeros" de la inteligencia castrista), afirman que Díaz "Fue un perseguidor de homosexuales en los años sesenta, como bien lo saben los fundadores de Ediciones El Puente; se sumó a la campaña contra Paradiso en nombre de la 'moral revolucionaria'; y fue detractor de la persona y la obra de Reinaldo Arenas." Sin embargo, debido a un problema de amnesia selectiva, los "redactores" no mencionan que Jesús Díaz también fue Secretario del núcleo del partido "comunista" (el fidelista, no el PSP), en el ICAIC.

Conversando fuera de la prisión

Cartas Desde Cuba/ Fernando Ravsberg

Apenas 24 horas del anuncio de Raúl Castro y en plena Navidad comenzó la excarcelación de los 2900 presos, muchos de los cuales ya están en sus hogares. Logramos conversar con varios de ellos sobre la vorágine de estas últimas 48 horas.
Localizarlos no fue difícil, casi en cada barrio popular hay presos liberados y basta preguntar para que cualquier vecino nos indique donde viven. En sus hogares reina la fiesta y todos se muestran dispuestos a hablar con nosotros sobre este “regalo de Navidad”.
“Después de que el Comandante habló nos reunieron en un establecimiento donde el General de Cárceles y Prisiones nos dijo ustedes van a irse para la calle sin deberle nada a la justicia”, nos explica Lázaro Crespo, quien con solo 36 años de edad llevaba 19 en prisión.
Recuerda que les dijeron que “si hoy nos íbamos para la calle era porque nosotros nos merecíamos estar integrados en la sociedad” y agrega que “en ese momento sentí una tremenda alegría pero tuve que controlarme para que no me diera un infarto”.
“Esto está muy bien hecho porque alegra los corazones de un montón de madres y de familias que hacía mucho tiempo no podíamos estar juntos”, dice Crespo y agrega que espera que se haga cada año como prometió el Presidente Raúl Castro en su discurso.

La reinserción
Lázaro recuerda que “he estado en muchas prisiones, incluso en el Combinado, y los dos últimos años en un Campamento donde nos estábamos preparando, estudiando y aprendiendo oficios.  Ahora solo me queda integrarme a la sociedad y tratar de nunca más tirar para atrás”.

Nos explica que existen en las prisiones cubanas diferentes cursos de formación profesional y que la participación en ellos es considerada por las autoridades como puntos a favor del recluso pues aumenta sus posibilidades de reinserción social.
Agustín Valdés se enteró el mismo día 25, apenas unas horas antes de ser indultado. “Estaba en un campamento y nos dijeron que debíamos ir para otro porque nos iban a liberar. Sentí una alegría inmensa, llevaba 26 años presos y me quedaban todavía 21 años más de condena”.  Mas >>

Cuba: The Birth of a Real Estate Market [By Managing Editor, REALTOR® Magazine]

By Wendy Cole, Managing Editor, REALTOR® Magazine/
I just returned from ten days in Cuba. It was a personal trip that offered a fascinating glimpse into one of the country’s great conundrums: how to balance people’s desire for greater economic freedom without compromising the country’s deeply-held socialist principles.  My visit, as part of a group, was enabled by the “people-to-people” license program restarted last fall by the Obama Administration. (Such visits to the island-nation are designed to foster meaningful cultural exchange between U.S. citizens and Cubans. They were initiated during the Clinton years and suspended while Bush was in the White House.)
I was particularly intrigued to see how Cuba’s new property law that allows citizens and permanent residents to buy and sell real estate was playing out. Ushered in with much fanfare in November, this market-oriented reform is a major shift from a half-century of socialist, state-run housing policies.
What’s evident wherever you go in the country (and we traveled to five cities): The housing stock is aging and badly decaying. The 50-year trade embargo with the United States and the loss of the Soviet safety net in 1991 mean Cubans must make do with what they have or can make, notwithstanding the contributions from the few countries they maintain economic ties with.  (Plywood and light bulbs are sorely needed, for example.) Still, the beauty of the neo-gothic, colonial architecture still comes through in many places, along with the peeling paint and crumbling walls.
Our personable and knowledgeable guide, Mirelys Gonzalez, is a typical Cuban home owner.  She lives with her husband and five-year-old daughter in a two-bedroom flat, constructed on top of the Havana home she grew up in. The extreme housing shortage means that multi-generational living arrangements are quite common. It also means that divorcing couples are more apt to erect a wall within the home they have shared and continue to occupy the same property long after the marriage has ended. The reason for all this togetherness is that no one can be assured of finding a new affordable place to live. More >>

Architect of Putin's System of Politics Is Reassigned

Vladislav Surkov [L] and Putin
msnbc.com

The Kremlin on Tuesday announced the reassignment of Vladislav Y. Surkov, the "gray cardinal" who has overseen Russia's domestic political scene for more than a decade. The reassignment, made in the midst of a new protest movement against Vladimir V. Putin, Russia's paramount leader, suggested that Mr. Putin is prepared to make changes in the tightly controlled system that emerged during his first and second presidential terms.
Mr. Surkov, the deputy head of the president's administration, is considered the architect of the system under Mr. Putin and his protégé and successor as president, Dmitri A. Medvedev, which Mr. Surkov christened "sovereign democracy." He will now oversee modernization and innovation as a deputy prime minister, but will take no role in domestic politics. Russia's political system has come under unprecedented pressure this month from protesters who complain that elections offer them no alternative to Mr. Putin's rigid model. Former finance minister Aleksei L. Kudrin, who this month presented himself as a potential leader for disgruntled liberals, said the move affecting Mr. Surkov suggests "political reforms are going to continue."
"I consider him one of the designers of the system," Mr. Kudrin said in an interview with Kommersant-FM. "Now, the system is being reconsidered. Other organizers are needed, with other views on the political system."
Mr. Surkov, an advertising prodigy who was brought into government toward the end of the Yeltsin era, has argued for years that centralizing power in the Kremlin was a matter of survival after the 1990s. He acknowledged last year that "centralization has reached the limits of its capacity," but attempts to cultivate new parties were often discontinued if they showed signs of slipping out of Kremlin control.
Asked by a journalist on Tuesday why he was leaving, Mr. Surkov responded: "Stabilization devours its young." He went on to say that he had requested a reassignment. Asked whether he would take a role in settling down the protests, Mr. Surkov said no.
"I am too odious for this brave new world," he said, in a short interview with the Interfax news service. He then summed up his achievements at the reporter's request.
"I was among the people who helped President Yeltsin realize a peaceful transfer of power," he said. "I was among those who helped President Putin stabilize the political system. I was among those who helped President Medvedev liberalize it." More >>

"EN TIEMPOS DIFÍCILES" - Heberto Padilla

A aquel hombre le pidieron su tiempo

para que lo juntara al tiempo de la Historia.

Le pidieron las manos,

porque para una época difícil

nada hay mejor que un par de buenas manos.

Le pidieron los ojos

que alguna vez tuvieron lágrimas

para que contemplara el lado claro

(especialmente el lado claro de la vida)

porque para el horror basta un ojo de asombro.

Le pidieron sus labios

resecos y cuarteados para afirmar,

para erigir, con cada afirmación, un sueño

(el-alto-sueño);

le pidieron las piernas

duras y nudosas

(sus viejas piernas andariegas),

porque en tiempos difíciles

¿algo hay mejor que un par de piernas

para la construcción o la trinchera?

Le pidieron el bosque que lo nutrió de niño,

con su árbol obediente.

Le pidieron el pecho, el corazón, los hombros.

Le dijeron

que eso era estrictamente necesario.

Le explicaron después

que toda esta donación resultaria inútil.

sin entregar la lengua,

porque en tiempos difíciles

nada es tan útil para atajar el odio o la mentira.

Y finalmente le rogaron

que, por favor, echase a andar,

porque en tiempos difíciles

esta es, sin duda, la prueba decisiva.

Carta desde la carcel de Fidel Castro Ruz

“…después de todo, para mí la cárcel es un buen descanso, que sólo tiene de malo el que es obligatorio. Leo mucho y estudio mucho. Parece increíble, las horas pasan como si fuesen minutos y yo, que soy de temperamento intranquilo, me paso el día leyendo, apenas sin moverme para nada. La correspondencia llega normalmente…”

“…Como soy cocinero, de vez en cuando me entretengo preparando algún pisto. Hace poco me mandó mi hermana desde Oriente un pequeño jamón y preparé un bisté con jalea de guayaba. También preparo spaghettis de vez en cuando, de distintas formas, inventadas todas por mí; o bien tortilla de queso. ¡Ah! ¡Qué bien me quedan! por supuesto, que el repertorio no se queda ahí. Cuelo también café que me queda muy sabroso”.
“…En cuanto a fumar, en estos días pasados he estado rico: una caja de tabacos H. Upman del doctor Miró Cardona, dos cajas muy buenas de mi hermano Ramón….”.
“Me voy a cenar: spaghettis con calamares, bombones italianos de postre, café acabadito de colar y después un H. Upman #4. ¿No me envidias?”.
“…Me cuidan, me cuidan un poquito entre todos. No le hacen caso a uno, siempre estoy peleando para que no me manden nada. Cuando cojo el sol por la mañana en shorts y siento el aire de mar, me parece que estoy en una playa… ¡Me van a hacer creer que estoy de vacaciones! ¿Qué diría Carlos Marx de semejantes revolucionarios?”.

Liborio

Liborio
A la puerta de la gloria está San Pedro sentado y ve llegar a su lado a un hombre de cierta historia. No consigue hacer memoria y le pregunta con celo: ¿Quién eras allá en el suelo? Era Liborio mi nombre. Has sufrido mucho, hombre, entra, te has ganado el cielo.

Para Raul Castro

Cuba ocupa el penultimo lugar en el mundo en libertad economica solo superada por Corea del Norte.

Cuba ocupa el lugar 147 entre 153 paises evaluados en "Democracia, Mercado y Transparencia 2007"

Cuando vinieron

Cuando vinieron a buscar a los comunistas, Callé: yo no soy comunista.
Cuando vinieron a buscar a los sindicalistas, Callé: yo no soy sindicalista.
Cuando vinieron a buscar a los judíos, Callé: yo no soy judío. Cuando vinieron a buscar a los católicos, Callé: yo no soy “tan católico”.
Cuando vinieron a buscarme a mí, Callé: no había quien me escuchara.

Reverendo Martin Niemöller

Un sitio donde los hechos y sus huellas nos conmueven o cautivan

CUBA LLORA Y EL MUNDO Y NOSOTROS NO ESCUCHAMOS

Donde esta el Mundo, donde los Democratas, donde los Liberales? El pueblo de Cuba llora y nadie escucha.
Donde estan los Green, los Socialdemocratas, los Ricos y los Pobres, los Con Voz y Sin Voz? Cuba llora y nadie escucha.
Donde estan el Jet Set, los Reyes y Principes, Patricios y Plebeyos? Cuba desesperada clama por solidaridad.
Donde Bob Dylan, donde Martin Luther King, donde Hollywood y sus estrellas? Donde la Middle Class democrata y conservadora, o acaso tambien liberal a ratos? Y Gandhi? Y el Dios de Todos?
Donde los Santos y Virgenes; los Dioses de Cristianos, Protestantes, Musulmanes, Budistas, Testigos de Jehova y Adventistas del Septimo Dia. Donde estan Ochun y todas las deidades del Panteon Yoruba que no acuden a nuestro llanto? Donde Juan Pablo II que no exige mas que Cuba se abra al Mundo y que el Mundo se abra a Cuba?
Que hacen ahora mismo Alberto de Monaco y el Principe Felipe que no los escuchamos? Donde Madonna, donde Angelina Jolie y sus adoptados around de world; o nos hara falta un Brando erguido en un Oscar por Cuba? Donde Sean Penn?
Donde esta la Aristocracia Obrera y los Obreros menos Aristocraticos, donde los Working Class que no estan junto a un pueblo que lanquidece, sufre y llora por la ignominia?
Que hacen ahora mismo Zapatero y Rajoy que no los escuchamos, y Harper y Dion, e Hillary y Obama; donde McCain que no los escuchamos? Y los muertos? Y los que estan muriendo? Y los que van a morir? Y los que se lanzan desesperados al mar?
Donde estan el minero cantabrico o el pescador de percebes gijonese? Los Canarios donde estan? A los africanos no los oimos, y a los australianos con su acento de hombres duros tampoco. Y aquellos chinos milenarios de Canton que fundaron raices eternas en la Isla? Y que de la Queen Elizabeth y los Lords y Gentlemen? Que hace ahora mismo el combativo Principe Harry que no lo escuchamos?
Donde los Rockefellers? Donde los Duponts? Donde Kate Moss? Donde el Presidente de la ONU? Y Solana donde esta? Y los Generales y Doctores? Y los Lam y los Fabelo, y los Sivio y los Fito Paez?
Y que de Canseco y Miñoso? Y de los veteranos de Bahia de Cochinos y de los balseros y de los recien llegados? Y Carlos Otero y Susana Perez? Y el Bola, y Pancho Cespedes? Y YO y TU?
Y todos nosotros que estamos aqui y alla rumiando frustaciones y resquemores, envidias y sinsabores; autoelogios y nostalgias, en tanto Louis Michel comulga con Perez Roque mientras Biscet y una NACION lanquidecen?
Donde Maceo, donde Marti; donde aquel Villena con su carga para matar bribones?
Cuba llora y clama y el Mundo NO ESCUCHA!!!
