Total Solar Eclipse on Monday Will Be the Biggest Traffic Jam in the USA Ever

The suckers who are born every minute will be facing huge SCAMS and lines everywhere.

A powerboat race team appears to have broken a time record for crossing from the Florida Keys to Cuba.

Throttleman Nigel Hook of San Diego, and driver Jay Johnson of Scottsdale, Arizona, piloted the 48-foot SilverHook on Thursday just over 103 miles from Key West to a point off the El Morro castle in Havana in 1 hour, 18 minutes and 3 seconds.

The boat averaged 79.23 mph in what veteran racer Hook labeled "very tricky water."

Their time eclipsed an unofficial 2015 record of 1:30 set by Apache Star, and the 1922 sanctioned record of 6 hours.

Ballet Nacional de Cuba to perform in Tampa for first time in 15 years


For the first time in 15 years, Ballet Nacional de Cuba, considered one of the finest companies in the world at executing traditional classical story ballets, will perform at the Straz Center for Performing Arts in Tampa.
Still under the direction of its legendary founder, ballerina Alicia Alonso, who is 96 and has been blind for decades, the historic company will present Alonso’s staging of “Giselle” on May 23 at Morsani Hall. The engagement is one of only five scheduled in the U.S.during 2018 and its first return to the Straz Center since October 2003.
Tickets for the one-night-only performance go on sale this Friday, August 25. Other venues on the company’s brief American tour include The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago.

Bad POTUS Bill Clinton. [Democrats + Republicans = Unbridled & Evil American Capitalism.]

In 1992, Clinton removed antitrust language from the Democratic platform and and began bashing bank regulators.

Once in office, he gutted anti-monopoly restrictions on broadcasters, laying the groundwork for media concentration that brought us Fox News and Rush Limbaugh.

He touched off an unprecedented wave of consolidations in the defense industry. He also repealed the Glass-Steagall Act, which had been erected during the New Deal to separate big banks and investment firms, and moved power into shadow markets free from regulation.

The result was the worldwide economic collapse of 2008, brought on by the megabanks and insurance giants created in the wake of the repeal of Glass Steagall.

JG: Last but not least, Bill Clinton prostituted himself by jumping into bed with super-racist U. S. Senator Jesse Helms (R-NC), and codified into law the Torricelli Act and the Helms-Burton Act, which are the foundation of the Cuba Blockade/Embargo.

The Clinton's (Bill, Hillary and ugly duckling Chelsea) are REAL bad-ass Americans.

Because of SHITTY Hillary, we have Neo Nazi Donald Trump in the White House today. What a legacy!

The kind of news that ABC loves to peddle at 6:30 p.m.

The Things that Are Very Difficult for Donald Trump to Say

"Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis and white supremacists.”

He had to think about it for 48 hours, because he had to denounce his own political supporters.

Rindió homenaje Raúl al Héroe Nacional y al Comandante en Jefe

El General de Ejército Raúl Castro Ruz depositó este lunes flores ante las tumbas del Héroe Nacional José Martí y del Comandante en Jefe de la Revolución Cubana Fidel Castro Ruz, en el cementerio de Santa Ifigenia en Santiago de Cuba

El General de Ejército Raúl Castro Ruz depositó este lunes flores ante las tumbas del Héroe Nacional José Martí y del Comandante en Jefe de la Revolución Cubana Fidel Castro Ruz, en el cementerio de Santa Ifigenia en Santiago de Cuba, acompañado por el Primer Secretario del Comité Provincial del Partido, compañero Lázaro Expósito Canto.

El 13 de agosto en horas de la mañana Raúl visitó en Playa Las Coloradas el complejo monumentario que recuerda el lugar donde se produjo el desembarco de los expedicionarios del yate Granma el 2 de diciembre de 1956.

Ello tuvo lugar justo a 60 años, 8 meses y 11 días de la fecha que marca el nacimiento del Ejército Rebelde que bajo el mando de Fidel supo reponerse del revés de Alegría de Pío, reagrupar sus fuerzas con el apoyo de campesinos humildes y del Movimiento 26 de julio, expandir la lucha insurrecional, hacia otras zonas del Oriente del país y más adelante a las provincias centrales y Pinar del Río, y derrotar al ejército batistiano a pesar de la superioridad en hombres y armamento.

Durante la visita Raúl rememoró aquellos difíciles momentos en los que se puso de manifiesto la inclaudicable fe del Comandante en Jefe en la victoria.

It is very obvious ...

... that Donald Trump and his gang of racist Americans are committed to starting a new war against ANYONE,  the D.P.R.K., Venezuela, Cuba, etc., as log as it is a war where capitalist millionaires can make huge profits.

The guy is going to destroy the USA if you don't impeach him and remove him from the White House.

A stunt gone wrong on the movie set

ABC runs it as national news at 6:30 p.m.

When are they going to stop their model of reporting "news" in a sensationalized manner?

If I don't want to pay $125.00 per month to the company that has a monopoly on cable in my building, I have to continue to put up with the garbage that ABC News peddles and screams every night.

Impeach Racist Trump


OMG! Racist Donald Trump says he is considering a presidential pardon for racist Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio

"Why do I he to press One for English, when you are going to connect me with a person I can't undersand?"

Did Putin say that when calling Trump?
