We the people of the world must wake up with an increasing hunger for truth, justice, and an appetite for real change which is possible if only so-called leaders are not interested in power grabs and filling their own pockets with global wealth. Signing agreements is not the same as solving problems.

Born out of World War II’s devastation to save future generations from conflict, the United Nations officially marks its 75th anniversary Monday at an inflection point in history, navigating a polarized world as it faces a pandemic, regional conflicts, a shrinking economy, and growing inequality.

Criticized for spewing out billions of words and achieving scant results on its primary mission of ensuring global peace, the UN nonetheless remains New York City the one place that its 193 member nations can meet to talk.

POTUS appeared with Americans held overseas but did he conveniently forget to mention Otto?

President Donald Trump offered a pre-recorded video message during the RNC joined by Americans held abroad and  detained by foreign governments released during his time in office.

Michael White, freed by Iran in June, and Pastor Andrew Brunson, who was arrested in Turkey and released in 2018 and four others. Trump has repeatedly touted his efforts to get Americans held overseas freed.

The newly-identified Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 is spreading across the globe while nations fear a pandemic. Here's what you need to know about the virus and the disease it causes, called COVID-19.

Worldwide public health officials are going as far as calling COVID-19 a pandemic.

The Kamikaze President? ub Thu, 10/03/2019 - 09:12

Is Donald Trump beginning an angry month with a crazy news conference and his tweet storm which reached another low with increased attacks on the press?

POTUS mental fitness becomes a conversation for conservatives, as an impeachment inquiry from liberal Democrats and challenges from political combatants are getting through to millions of swing voters who are sick and tired of Trump.
The crazier he gets, the more the pressure will rise on US Congress and the American public to do something serious about it.

Man-Made-Crisis ub Tue, 06/25/2019 - 08:30

"When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation." Declaration of Independence

I was born in the Republic of Cuba, a nation comprising the main island as well as Isla de la Juventud and several minor archipelagos. Cuba is located in the northern Caribbean where the Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean meet up.

Years later I was recruited by George HW Bush to lead the electronic Bay of Pigs named TV Martí which has been ineffective.

The Mourning After ub Tue, 03/26/2019 - 09:13

Welcome to the mourning after. Do you smell the Covfefe brewing on Capitol Hill? The US Department of Justice offers no timetable on the release of the Mueller report to Congress.

Can you imagine if the Starr Report had been provided only to President Bill Clinton's Attorney General, Janet Reno, who claimed she read it read it in two days and published a 4-page cliff notes concluding that President Clinton committed no crimes?

Real Truth Caravan ub Sun, 10/28/2018 - 17:36

POTUS War on Latinos and a Caravan is NOT the most pressing issue in this election. The Democrats do not support open borders and the reason why ICE gets a bad rap is about those kids who have still been detained hundreds of days after the court ordered them released. This is also a war on many woman and children.

Religious Freedoms ub Fri, 10/26/2018 - 10:34

On this 20th anniversary of the 1998 International Religious Freedom Act expanding US foreign policy capabilities promoting and defending religious freedoms at home and all over the world, lets put our money. Where our mouths are.

IRFA builds on our founding fathers’ firm conviction that the freedom of individuals to believe as they see fit is a God-given right that is central to the success of a nation.
