The GOP weeks ago initially rejected a bi-partisan commission to investigate the US Capitol insurrection and get to just the facts.

The Republicans had the opportunity for a bipartisan commission but the Senate said no and the House members are whining about the Democrat House Speaker rejecting two out of five recommendations because they may be key investigation witnesses. The GOP is hell-bent on promoting a complete distortion of facts.

Every American may be familiar with the classic comic duo of Abbot and Costello’s 1940s who’s on first favorite comedy routine.

Caribbean counties are taking it to the streets. Consider the protests in Cuba, the president of Haiti assassinated, and Venezuela arrest.

Even a well-intentioned USA intervention in Haiti, Cuba,  Venezuela, or anywhere else in the region will set off alarm bells across the Caribbean and throughout Latin America.

The difficult truth is that America is not going to be the primary engine of political change in either Haiti or Cuba. Meaningful, durable political change in both nations lies in the hands of the populations themselves.
