• Obama Just Used “Executive Powers” To Do The Cuban Dictator’s Bidding

    Cuban President Raul Castro took to the airways Wednesday and urged Barack Obama to unilaterally legislate away the U.S. embargo on the Caribbean Communist Country by way of “Executive Branch powers.”

    “Though the measures of the embargo have become law, the president of the United States can change the enforcement thereof under his Executive Branch powers,” Castro announced during a press conference.

    “We propose to the United States government to take mutual measures for the improvement of our bilateral climate and move forward toward normalization of ties between our countries,” the dictator added.

    And, according to the New York Times, Castro may get exactly what he’s asked for.

    President Obama on Wednesday ordered the restoration of full diplomatic relations with Cuba and the opening of an embassy in Havana for the first time in more than a half-century as he vowed to “cut loose the shackles of the past” and sweep aside one of the last vestiges of the Cold War.

    The surprise announcement came at the end of 18 months of secret negotiations that produced a prisoner swap brokered with the help of Pope Francis and concluded by a telephone call between Mr. Obama and President Raúl Castro. The historic deal broke an enduring stalemate between two countries divided by just 90 miles of water but oceans of mistrust and hostility dating from the days of Theodore Roosevelt’s charge up San Juan Hill and the nuclear brinkmanship of the Cuban missile crisis.

    Cuba is run by a death cult.

    Cubans who speak out and fight for basic human rights are repressed, jailed, or executed.

    “This entire policy shift announced today is based on an illusion, on a lie, the lie and the illusion that more commerce and access to money and goods will translate to political freedom for the Cuban people,” said Senator Marco Rubio, a Republican from Florida and whose Cuban parents fled from Fidel Castro’s murderous regime. “All this is going to do is give the Castro regime, which controls every aspect of Cuban life, the opportunity to manipulate these changes to perpetuate itself in power.”

    Even Democratic U.S. senator Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) opposed Obama on this issue.

    “President Obama’s actions have vindicated the brutal behavior of the Cuban government,” Menendez said today during a public address. “There is no equivalence between an international aid worker and convicted spies who were found guilty of conspiracy to commit espionage against our nation. One spy was also convicted of conspiracy to murder for his role in the 1996 tragedy in which the Cuban military shot down two U.S. civilian planes, killing several American citizens. My heart goes out to the American families that lost love ones on that fateful day.”

    Last year Obama said he’s not an emperor. But Raul Castro’s suggestion that Obama use executive action and the fact that Obama is fulfilling the dictators wishes, suggests that the opposite is true.

    Here is a part of Marco Rubio’s takedown of Obama’s massive mistake:
