Obama: Embraces Cuba, Debases Israel

-
Roanoke Times, 12-18-2014, pg 1, 4: US Cuba restores diplomatic relations
Pg 1, 4: Area residents rejoice at new Cuba policy
Pg 4:  World welcomes move:  GOP leaders balk

Apparently, it’s not just GOPers who are questioning this very one-sided deal that props up a totalitarian, communist, terrorist, human rights abuser and safe-haven for killers of US police officers.

Washington Post: Obama gives the Castro regime in Cuba an undeserved bailout
http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/the-obama-administration-extends-the-castro-regime-in-cuba-a-bailout-it-doesnt-deserve/2014/12/17/a25a15d4-860c-11e4-9534-f79a23c40e6c_story.html
IN RECENT months, the outlook for the Castro regime in Cuba was growing steadily darker. The modest reforms it adopted in recent years to improve abysmal economic conditions had stalled, due to the regime’s refusal to allow Cubans greater freedoms. Worse, the accelerating economic collapse of Venezuela meant that the huge subsidies that have kept the Castros afloat for the past decade were in peril. A growing number of Cubans were demanding basic human rights, such as freedom of speech and assembly.
On Wednesday, the Castros suddenly obtained a comprehensive bailout — from the Obama administration. President Obama granted the regime everything on its wish list that was within his power to grant; a full lifting of the trade embargo requires congressional action. Full diplomatic relations will be established, Cuba’s place on the list of terrorism sponsors reviewed and restrictions lifted on U.S. investment and most travel to Cuba. That liberalization will provide Havana with a fresh source of desperately needed hard currency and eliminate U.S. leverage for political reforms.

Washington Times: Obama marches against America with his ‘valet’ complex

So this is what foreign policy by Beyonce looks like.
It’s been two years since the sultry and suave music power couple of Beyonce and Jay-Z were publicly humiliated across the globe after they realized it’s not “cool” to visit countries like Cuba run by totalitarian regimes that sponsor terrorism, steal private property, jail people for no reason and freely make critics disappear without a trace.

NJ Police Seek Return Of Joanne Chesimard, Fugitive Cop Killer In Cuba
http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2014/12/18/nj-police-seek-return-of-joanne-chesimard-fugitive-cop-killer-in-cuba/
Joanne Chesimard was convicted of murdering (execution style) Trooper Werner Foerster during a gunfight after being stopped on the New Jersey Turnpike in 1973. Trooper James Harper was also seriously injured in the shooting.
Chesimard, whom the FBI has described as a member of the Black Liberation Army, was sentenced to life in prison.
But she escaped in 1979 and eventually ended up in Cuba, where she was granted asylum by Fidel Castro and has been living under the name Assata Shakur.
-
-
Cuba also granted asylum to three black militants who hijacked an airplane from Albuquerque while being sought for the 1972 murder of New Mexico State Trooper Robert Rosenbloom during a traffic stop.
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/12/18/what-s-next-for-the-cop-killers-hiding-in-havana.html#
Charlie Hill continues to live in Cuba. Hill told a Washington Post reporter in 1999 that he had no regrets about killing Rosenbloom, who had a wife and two young daughters.
-
-
Apparently, Obama never thought to ask for Chesimard or Hill to be returned to face justice for cop-killing.
-
Name just one concession or commitment Obama got from Castro in exchange for propping up one of the most corrupt and repressive regimes on earth?
-
While Obama is embracing the Castro’s he’s busy bashing the Israelis’’ and throwing them under the Hamas-Fatah bus.

-
The recent elections were a clear and loud repudiation of Obama who has become a hostile, vindictive and isolated person desperately seeking approval and “looking for love in all the wrong places.”
-

This is our leader with just more hope and change we can believe in!
