New ISIS Recruitment Video Uses Hockey, Fishing Footage to Pander to Canadians

The jihadist terror group Islamic State--formerly the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS)--has released a new video attempting to court Canadians to the cause of jihad; it stars a Canadian man named André Poulin, who was killed in battle in Syria.

In the video, Poulin is introduced as "Abu Muslim," and he explains that he was not born into Islam but found it later, and that he left a very comfortable life in Canada to live in Syria, or "Sham." Poulin, in English, explains that he left Canada because it was impossible to live among non-Muslims and properly practice the version of his faith he found with ISIS. “I originally come from Canada. Before Islam, I was like any regular Canadian. I watched hockey. I went to the cottage in the summertime. I loved to fish. I wanted to go hunting. I liked outdoors. I liked sports,” he explains. “I was a very good person.”
While he speaks, B-roll footage of Canadians playing hockey, fishing, and enjoying the outdoors plays. It is an attempt, presumably, to show that people from all walks of life can abandon their lives at home, no matter how comfortable, and come to the battlefields of Iraq and Syria to wage jihad. Instead, it presents an enticing picture of Canada that comes off more as a tourist video than jihadist propaganda.
Poulin explains that he was "a regular person," not someone with significant social problems or triggers that would make him violent. "It wasn't like I was some social outcast. It wasn't like I was an anarchist. ... Mujahidin are regular people, too." He adds that ISIS not only needs fighters, but "engineers, volunteers, fundraisers" and that "there is a role for everybody here in Syria."
The video draws to a close with footage of Poulin fighting in Islam and being killed. It ends--in case the viewer does not believe that he is dead--with graphic footage of Poulin's body, edited using a soft-lens filter to infer that he is now in a positive afterlife.
Warning: video contains graphic footage towards the end:

The National Post writes that Poulin was not a "regular person" in Canada, however, as he repeatedly found himself in trouble with the law over violent threats. "He was a troubled youth who had repeated brushes with the law for crimes such as uttering threats until he left to remake himself as a jihadist fighter," explains the publication.
ISIS recruitment in Canada has become a major problem for law enforcement in the past several months. According to The Globe and Mail, about 130 jihadists are believed to have left Canada to fight in "overseas conflicts," mostly in Iraq and Syria. There is no estimate of how many of them have died in battle. The problem has become particularly acute in the city of Calgary, where Calgary police Chief Rick Hanson warned that “this is an issue that’s not going away and in the near future will continue to grow."

Fallece la legendaria Olga Kotelko, veterana trituradora de récords

es una verguenza que los medios de comunicacion canadienses, las autoridades deportivas y tanto entusiasta libelo propulsor de la liberacion del consumo de la marihuana y del world pride de estos dias, no hayan encontrado tiempo para rendir homenaje a quien es un ejemplo para los canadienses de todas las edades. una sola y breve nota a ojo de aguila ha sido ha todo lo que los ocupadisimos misters and mistress le han dedicado, mientras el mundo le rinde homenajes. ashamed of you.
----------------------------
TodayandForever Videos
EL PAÍS

Olga Kotelko se calzó unas zapatillas de atletismo por primera vez a los 77 años. Competitiva por genética, no se conformó con dar paseos a ritmo ligero como aconsejan los médicos a personas de su edad. Ella quería correr, correr de verdad. Se convirtió en una máquina de ganar medallas y de destrozar récords en atletismo para personas mayores. Compitió hasta que una hemorragia cerebral la derrotó el pasado martes y falleció a los 95 años.
Más de 500 medallas y 26 récords mundiales son cifras que impresionan. Más aún si se sabe que esos triunfos se cosecharon entre los 77 y 95 años. Y más aún cuando la protagonista no había practicado nunca el atletismo. Porque a Olga Kotelko (Vonda, Canadá, 1919) lo que le gustaba era el béisbol. De joven no le importaba recorrerse varios kilómetros para jugar cuando salía de la escuela y luego volver a casa.
Criada en una granja del interior de Canadá, era la séptima de 11 hijos de un matrimonio de origen ucranio. Desde muy pequeña compaginó la escuela con las tareas domésticas y en su tiempo libre jugaba al softball y béisbol. Se graduó en la escuela para profesores en 1941 y comenzó a enseñar en una escuela de Vonda. Su matrimonio se rompió en 1957, cuando estaba embarazada de su segunda hija. Se mudó con su hermana a la Columbia Británica y se sacó un título universitario mientras criaba a sus vástagos.
La carrera en la enseñanza de Olga continuó hasta 1984, el año de su jubilación. Hasta entonces nunca se planteó la práctica regular de deporte, pero una vez que tuvo tiempo libre retomó el softball. Kotelko jugaba con dedicación pero con sus más de 70 años los reflejos y agilidad empezaban a fallarle en el juego.
A los 77 una compañera de equipo le aconsejó el atletismo en pista y Olga se puso a ello. Contrató los servicios de una entrenadora húngara que le apretó las tuercas, cosa que gustó a la casi octogenaria deportista. Se sometió a interminables y agotadoras sesiones de gimnasio y entrenamiento en pista y sus músculos respondieron de forma asombrosa. Entonces decidió competir.
En los campeonatos de atletismo para gente mayor los veteranos deportistas se dividen en franjas de edad. Hay muchos sexagenarios, septuagenarios y octogenarios. A partir de los 90 los participantes escasean. Olga Kotelko arrasó en cada franja en la que compitió. De hecho, sus marcas a menudo eran mejores que las de atletas más jóvenes.
Además de un ejemplo de longevidad, Olga lo fue también de polivalencia. Podía correr, saltar, lanzar… Así arrasó en categorías atléticas tan dispares como los 100 y 200 metros lisos, salto de altura y longitud o lanzamiento de martillo y jabalina. Y en todas ganaba. Cientos de medallas y 26 récords —gran parte de ellos entre los 90 y 95 años— cuantifican su éxito en el deporte.
El fenómeno de Kotelko avivó el debate sobre los efectos del ejercicio de alta intensidad en los mayores. Cualquier galeno aconsejaría hacer deporte a un octogenario o nonagenario, pero Olga machacaba sus músculos y estos se fortalecieron a la vez que se ralentizó su envejecimiento. La atleta fue objeto de estudio y los expertos concluyeron que su caso era excepcional: sus riñones procesaban las enzimas y subproductos necesarios para que su masa muscular se regenerase después de un ejercicio intenso. Olga podía emplearse a fondo en el deporte porque se recuperaba de manera rápida y eficaz.
La veterana atleta canadiense fue rebajando el ritmo de sus entrenamientos en los últimos años, pero sus resultados siguieron siendo espectaculares. Al margen de los estudios a los que fue sometida, los investigadores obtuvieron una conclusión evidente: su tenacidad y competitividad fueron claves en su exitosa carrera deportiva.

Only in Canada: Ontario Provincial Police patrol boat torched in harbour

LONDON, Ont. — For some culprits stealing a police patrol boat wasn’t good enough, they had to light it on fire to finish the job.
The Ontario Provincial Police in Elgin County lost their only patrol boat Wednesday after the 24-foot vessel was taken from Stan’s Marina, driven about one kilometre out into the harbour and torched.
“It’s completely destroyed,” Elgin OPP Const. Troy Carlson said.
The cost of replacing the Sea Swirl police boat is pegged at $85,000.
The boat was the only one available for marine rescue operations along a 70-kilometre stretch of the Lake Erie shoreline.
Carlson said auxiliary Coast Guard units are normally based in Port Stanley and Port Burwell, but this isn’t the case this year, leaving the Elgin OPP boat responsible for all marine emergencies and searches in the area.
“This is a senseless act which risks the safety of the public,” Carlson said.

Quebec police search for 3 inmates after helicopter jailbreak

Provincial police are searching for three inmates with previous ties to the Hells Angels who escaped from a Quebec City detention centre using a helicopter.
A Sûreté du Québec spokesperson confirmed to CBC News that the prison break occurred at 7:45 p.m. ET from Orsainville Detention Centre and the inmates fled westbound in a green helicopter.
"We are talking closely with the detention centre to figure out exactly how the escape transpired,” said Ann Mathieu. "The priority number one is to find the helicopter."
Police are now searching for Yves Denis, 35, Denis Lefebvre, 53, and 49-year-old Serge Pomerleau.
In 2010, Lefebvre was arrested by provincial police after a drug operation bust known as Project Crayfish that led to dozens of arrests. He was reported to have had ties to the Hells Angels.
During the bust police seized multiple weapons, 41 vehicles, a plane, a helicopter and $905,000, CBC Radio-Canada reported.
The three who escaped were being held at the detention centre waiting to stand trial, but it was not immediately clear what charges they were facing.
Police are warning anyone who sees the men not approach them and to call police immediately.
Last year, there was a daring escape at St-Jerome prison in Quebec involving a helicopter where a pilot was forced at gunpoint to pluck two inmates from the facility on a Sunday afternoon.
The two escapees and the two suspects who hijacked the chopper were caught by police within a few hours of the escape.

Report: Venezuela-Cuba Facilitate Infiltration of Iranian Agents into North America

A new report by the Washington D.C.-based, Center for a Secure Free Society, and Canada's Institute for Social and Economic Analysis, raises concerns about the use of Venezuela as a "bridge" to smuggle Iranian agents into North America.

The report entitled, "Canada on Guard: Assessing the Immigration Security Threat of Iran, Venezuela and Cuba," highlights the following key points:

- Iran is collaborating with Venezuela and Cuba to exploit the seams in the Canadian immigration system.

- From 2009 to 2011, Latin America was the largest prior embarkation region for improperly documented Iranians migrating to Canada to seek refugee status.

- Venezuelan authorities provided at least 173 passports, visas and other documentation to Islamist extremists seeking to slip unnoticed into North America.

- Soft power solidarity networks in Canada serve as a “Trojan Horse” for Iran and ALBA to establish cover for spies, saboteurs and other nefarious actors.

As regards the passports, visas and other documentation to Islamist extremists, it's important to remember that Venezuela's immigration system has been under Cuban control since 2004.

At that time, Cuba's former intelligence chief, General Ramiro Valdes, and the Vice-Chancellor of its University of Information Science (UCI), Jose Lavandero Garcia, oversaw and implemented the complete overhaul of Venezuela's passport and naturalization agency (including all of its data, software and systems), formerly known as ONIDEX.

Quebec man who killed teen daughter with slap gets 60 days in jail

Nouteme Sidime, 13, (left) prior to her death in October 2010. Her father Moussa Sidime (in a court sketch, right) will be charged with manslaughter, it was decided Wednesday.
A Quebec man who slapped his teenage daughter so hard that it led to her death has been sentenced to 60 days in jail.
Moussa Sidimé, of Longueuil, Que., will be able to serve his sentence on weekends over 30 weeks, which will be followed by two years of probation.
The 74-year-old pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the 2010 death of his daughter Nouténé.
Sidimé got into an argument with Nouténé about how she was conducting her chores and he slapped her on both sides of her face.
Minutes later Sidimé found the 13-year-old unconscious and called 911. She died three days later in hospital, never coming out of a coma.
Sidimé was initially charged with aggravated assault causing death. But a pathologist's report found that Nouténé died of a cerebral hemorrhage and the slaps were a factor in her death, and the charges were changed to manslaughter.
The family called the death a tragic accident.

How an MP’s open-door policy welcomed me to the world of politics

What makes some people so passionate about politics? Sometimes it’s as simple as an invitation, or an extracurricular activity. We reached out to this year’s Everyday Political Citizens to learn how they ended up at the political table. Throughout March and April we’ll be sharing their stories. Today’s blog post is written by Gabriela Gonzalez, an Everyday Political Citizen living in Toronto, Ontario. 


As a third year university student with a keen desire to give back to the country that opened its doors to me, I found an opportunity in the open door policy of one extraordinary Member of Parliament (MP).

I walked into then MP Gerard Kennedy’s Constituency Office in the summer of 2009. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I knew I had to sit at the table or at least step into the office if I wanted to have a role in shaping the country. At that time Gerard, his small staff and a team of youth volunteers were working on a research project. They were trying to determine if the federal government’s Infrastructure Stimulus Fund program was being rolled out in a timely manner and having the desired job creation impact in communities across the country. This program was put in place amidst the 2008 economic recession to help Canada’s aging infrastructure while trying to boost employment numbers.

I was invited to join the project as a volunteer and made cold calls to municipalities to determine the status of those infrastructure projects and the number of jobs created. The result of the research garnered dozens of news articles and helped shed light on a government program that we felt was not being effective. This was the work of an MP and Shadow Minister putting to great use the limited resources that are granted to opposition members in the House of Commons. A Shadow Ministers’ role is to scrutinize government decisions and programs to determine their effectiveness. Seeing democracy being implemented right before my eyes was fascinating and I was immediately hooked on politics. This was my first political moment.

Gabriela (left) at the Ontario Liberal leadership convention in 2013


In our democratic society, voting is the most powerful instrument that we have at our disposal to help shape the kind of society that we want to live in. Governments make important decisions about the quality of our health care, the education system, the protection of the environment and even the business climate. However, since the opportunity to use this tool may only come every four years, getting politically involved between elections is a great way to impact the political dialogue.

To anyone who has ever wanted to get involved but felt unsure how to take the first step, I’d say go ahead and start small - follow your local politicians’  activities on social media and sign up for their newsletters. By doing so, you can stay abreast, in real time, of what happens in your community and how your political representatives are staying involved. You can also contact your local riding association. That said, while it is relatively easy to access a politician’s contact information on the House of Commons or provincial legislature’s website; it’s a different case with riding associations. Samara’s own research shows that riding associations are lagging when it comes to publicizing ways for constituents to get involved.  So, if you can’t get in touch with, or don’t feel that your riding association is very engaging, don’t worry. Now is a great time to get involved, because with a number of upcoming elections (especially in Ontario), there are going to be a lot of people who need help on their campaigns.

Gabriela meeting supporters at an event in Toronto


With a possible provincial election in Ontario, an election in Toronto —Canada’s 6th largest government — and a federal election sometime in 2015, politicians at all levels are preparing, and should be eager to accept volunteers. Tweet at them or send them an email and you might be surprised how likely you are to receive a welcoming response. If your current politician does not appeal to you, find which candidate or party you sympathize with and contact them. From my own experience and as documented by many others, campaigns are an excellent opportunity to get your first political moment and hone in on some great life and professional skills. If you are up to the challenge, maybe your first political moment will get your political career started, like mine did.

Islamist Internet threat 'theatre,' expert says

OTTAWA -- Canada is the latest western country to receive an Internet threat from an Islamic militant group fighting in Syria's civil war.
"This is a message to Canada and all of America," says a young English-speaking man on a recently uploaded YouTube video. "We are coming and we will destroy you."
The man, who in the 75-second clip is surrounded by masked people holding rifles, claims to be a member of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, also known as ISIL.
"I (came) to this land for one reason alone," the man says before tearing and burning what looks like a passport, "I left comfort for one reason alone: For (God)."
ISIL, which is operating in Syria, has been publicly disavowed by al-Qaeda for being too unruly and unmanageable.
Mubin Shaikh, an expert on Islamic militant groups, says that ISIL is known to be so vicious it kills fellow Muslims whom the group claims don't subscribe to its brand of Islam.
The former CSIS and RCMP mole who infiltrated the Toronto 18 terror cell in 2006, says he is completing his PhD.
He says Canadians shouldn't be too concerned about the video since it is most likely staged and being used for marketing purposes.
"This video clip is theatre," he said. "It served a number of purposes; it appeals to (ISIL's) own groups and those they want to recruit."

Canadian Dentist to Use John Lennon's Tooth to Clone Baby from Dead Beatle's DNA

RED DEER, Alberta, April 10 (UPI) -- All you need is love -- and maybe an old tooth…

During an episode of Dead Famous DNA on Channel 4 in England, Canadian dentist Dr. Michael Zuk revealed that he plans on using DNA from one of John Lennon’s teeth to make a clone baby that he can raise as his own.
“If there is enough DNA to sequence it, it could be basically genetic real estate,” Zuk said. “My goal is to own John Lennon’s DNA.”
Zuk purchased Lennon’s molar for $33,000 when it was put up for auction about three years ago.
The doctor believes that owning the tooth grants him the rights to Lennon’s DNA.
“I think I can, because of the laws,” Dr. Zuk said. “Depends on where you do these things. If it can’t be done in one country, you can do these things in another. To have John Lennon’s DNA sequence outside of the family protection to me, and full access to it, is worth millions.”
He even has a plan about how to make sure the test-tube baby becomes a success.
“He would still be his exact duplicate but you know, hopefully keep him away from drugs and cigarettes, that kind of thing,” Zuk said. “But you know, guitar lessons wouldn’t hurt anyone right?”

Growing medical marijuana is a big business in Canada

Smiths Falls (Canada) (AFP) February-16-14

Tweed Inc. workers tend to medical marijuana plants at a new commercial operation set up inside a former Hershey's chocolate factory, in Smiths Falls, Ontario, an hour's drive from Ottawa, on February 4, 2014
An hour's drive south of Canada's capital, past snow-covered pine forests and farmland, Chuck Rifici is growing marijuana at an old Hershey's factory.
He plans to sell it for medical use under a new government scheme starting on April 1 that will ban home cultivation in favor of large commercial greenhouses.
Rifici's start-up Tweed Inc. is one of only six companies so far to earn a license to grow from Health Canada, and will be the first in the world to be publicly traded on a stock exchange.
Security is airtight -- as required by the new federal regulations. Staff must swipe identification cards each time they enter and leave a room, and the facility in Smiths Falls is under constant video surveillance.
"It's like manufacturing inside a bank," Rifici told AFP during a tour of the facility. "But otherwise, it's just like any other horticultural operation."
Inside, workers wearing laboratory coats and hair nets are constantly pruning the plants. Heat, humidity, carbon dioxide, air flow, nutrients feeding and light (12 hours on, 12 hours off) are monitored and controlled by sophisticated software.
- 'Bright like the sun' -

This former Hershey's chocolate factory has found new life as an indoor hydroponic greenhouse to grow medical marijuana, pictured in Smiths Falls, Ontario, on February 4, 2014
Hershey's used to make chocolate here, but the factory closed six years ago, after five decades in operation.
Tweed, with almost Can$10 million (US$9 million) in "seed money," has moved in and plans to distribute its marijuana across Canada for medical use.
When renovations are completed, the Tweed factory will contain 30 grow rooms containing 1,300 plants each, as well as a "mother room" for seedlings.
"It'll be bright like the sun in here," said Rifici, pointing to bulbs being installed in one grow room. Workers will need to wear sunglasses, long-sleeved shirts and sunblock to enter, he said.
Paint on the walls is still wet. In a corner, old two-story tanks that once contained sugar for making chocolate candies are being repurposed to hold water for hydroponics.
The marijuana itself, once it is cut and dried and packaged, will be stored in a secure vault awaiting shipment by mail or courier to customers. The vault can hold up to Can$150 million worth of cannabis.
- New rules -

The use of marijuana for medicinal purposes was effectively legalized in Canada in 1999, and such use has been expanded through a series of court challenges.
According to government figures, more than 37,350 Canadians have prescriptions for medical marijuana. The typical user is male, in his 40s, and smokes 10 grams per day.
Health Canada originally tried supplying the drug, growing it in an abandoned mine shaft in the far north, but it was widely panned as weak.
Thereafter nearly 30,000 home-based growing operations were allowed to crop up. But local officials complained about a lack of monitoring, and police worried about an increase in crime.
Under the new regulatory regime, all of these small gardens will be replaced by fewer but larger commercial operations. Health Canada is reviewing 450 applications for the new commercial licenses.
- High demand expected -
"This is a brand new industry created by government regulatory changes, and growth is expected to be massive," said Rifici, citing government estimates that the number of users will grow to 450,000 by 2024.
Customers have already started placing orders for Tweed's 25 strains that will sell for Can$4 to Can$12 per gram.
Tweed initially expects to harvest 50-100 kilograms (110-220 pounds) of marijuana every two months. The company is licensed to grow and sell up to 15,000 kilograms per year.
All six currently licensed companies are focused on the domestic market, but some are open to export opportunities. Canadian-Dutch joint venture Bedrocan is expected to become the first to legally import marijuana into Canada.
Recreational use remains prohibited under Canadian law.
But Rifici, who has ties to Canada's opposition Liberals, said he is closely watching the "political winds." Liberal leader Justin Trudeau has called for decriminalization, but three other attempts to change the law have failed.
Rifici noted that the new regulations have created a production and distribution system that could also accommodate sales to recreational pot smokers, who are estimated to number one million nationwide.
- Small town job creator -
Tweed currently employs 20 staff, but as it ramps up, it expects to add up to 200 jobs.
This doesn't quite make up for the 600 jobs lost when Hershey's shut down the plant. But Tweed plans to lease some of its 500,000 square feet (46,450 square meters) of factory space to others to make up the difference.
Smiths Falls, a town of 9,000 residents, has faced "significant economic challenges in the past few years," said Mayor Dennis Staples.
If Tweed hadn't come along, the plant would have been demolished and the town -- which has shed 1,700 jobs in recent times -- would have lost crucial industrial capacity, he told AFP.
"We dodged a bullet with Tweed's arrival," Staples said.
According to Rifici, Tweed is fully funded for at least two years of operations, and is "hoping for profitability sooner rather than later."
He said he was self-conscious at first as he sought funding.
"I found myself whispering 'marijuana' across tables at coffee shops to potential investors," he said. When he gave the local police chief a tour of his factory, he said "it just felt very strange."
Now, Rifici's biggest challenge is lining up customers because medical marijuana is a controlled substance and cannot be advertised in Canada.
Tweed has relied a lot on media coverage. It is also planning a listing on the Canadian Venture Exchange to boost its visibility and for easier access to capital, if needed, to grow the business.
"We'll be the first marijuana grower to be listed on a stock exchange," Rifici said.

Only in Canada: Fire destroys Mount Albert fire station!!!

A volunteer fire hall in Mount Albert was destroyed after a fire ripped through the decades-old building early Sunday morning.
The blaze started at 8 a.m. in the East Gwillimbury Fire Station 2-6, which is one of three in the area.
Crews from a neighbouring community were able to get the fire under control, but not before the blaze engulfed the 40-year-old building in flames.
It is believed six fire vehicles were destroyed in the blaze, including a brand-new pumper worth approximately $750,000.
East Gwillimbury Mayor Virginia Hackson called it a ‘substantial loss’ for the community.
“We have our fire hall itself that we’ve lost, as well as all the equipment from our firefighters, all their safety equipment,” she said.
Meanwhile, residents are concerned about the potential loss of service in an emergency.
“Hopefully, nothing happens to anybody anytime soon, that we need the fire department to come to our house quickly,” one resident said.
But town officials say a plan is being worked out.
“Our focus is to ensure that the community of Mount Albert is maintaining its community safety,” said East Gwillimbury Fire Chief Phil Dawson.

"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.

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!!!
