Glad We Are Clear!


In an extremely confusing joint press conference by the spokespersons of the DPT’s of State and Defense, we found out that as of today 18 thousand persons had been flown out of Afghanistan.

Who they were and how many US citizens were not clear.

We have citizens, Afghans who helped us, refugees, or is it “at risk”?

Impossible to ascertain.

Thanks to our search ability, I found the transcript of a conversation between State and Defense…

Intercepted conversation between Dpt. of State and Defense about Kabul evacuation:

State: let’s see, we have on the bags, who’s on first, What’s on second, I Don’t Know is on third flight….

Defense: That’s what I want to find out.

State: I say Who’s on first, What’s on second, I Don’t Know’s on third.

Defense: And you don’t know the fellows’ names?

State: Well I should.

Defense: Well then who’s on first?

State: Yes.

Defense: I mean the fellow’s name.

State: Who.

Defense: The guy on first.

State: Who.

Defense: The first flight?.

State: Who.

Defense: The guy flying?…

State: Who is on first!

Defense: I’m asking YOU who’s on first.

State: That’s the man’s name.

Defense: That’s who’s name?

State: Yes.

Defense: Well go ahead and tell me

State: That’s it.

Defense: That’s who?

State: Yes.


Defense: Look, you gotta first flight?

State: Certainly.

Defense: Who’s flying first?

State: That’s right.

Defense: All I’m trying to find out is the fellow’s name on first plane.

State: Who.

Defense: All I’m trying to find out is what’s the guy’s name on first plane leaving.

State: No. What is on second flight.

Defense: I’m not asking you who’s on second flight!

State: Who’s on first.

Defense: One flight at a time, please!

State: Well, don’t change the passengers around.

Defense: I’m not changing nobody!

State: Take it easy, buddy.

Defense: I’m only asking you, who’s the guy on first flight?

State: That’s right.

Costello: Ok.

Abbott: All right.

Glad it is now clear to all!

Deconflict And Possible Does Not Cut It!!


Possible definition: Able to be or become; potential. Having as much or as little of a specified quality as can be achieved.

That may exist or happen, but that is not certain or probable.

Conflict definition: Refers to a sharp disagreement or collision as in interests or ideas and emphasizes the process rather than the end [the conflict over slavery];

Fight: a rather general word for any contest, struggle, or quarrel, stresses physical or hand-to-hand combat

Struggle: implies great effort or violent exertion, physical or otherwise [the struggle for existence]

Contention: most frequently applies to heated verbal strife, or dispute [religious contention broke out]

Contest: refers to a struggle, either friendly or hostile, for supremacy in some matter [athletic contests, a contest of wits.]

The stated future actions expressed by the Assistant Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, and the Chair of the Joint Chiefs left much to be desired.

We the people hoped that they would be the ones to explain what the plan was to get our American citizens and our Afghan allies out of harm’s way.

Everyone was extremely disappointed with our president Biden’s reasoning and expressing his responsibility using Truman’s “the buck”, as if it were a train that made multiple stops before arriving at the final and only destination.

Our Vice-president remains AWOL accompanying our Secretary of State.

Finally, we heard the main tactics to be utilized consisted of “deconflicting” and doing as much as “possible” to achieve our mission.

I cannot fathom a weaker form of confronting a cruel and radical opponent.

Chamberlain in his appeasement of Hitler sounded tougher than them.

You should explain clearly to the Taliban thugs, that if they would not allow safe passage for our troops to pick up our people they WOULD have a conflict in their hands against the full power of our armed forces, and that “not possible” is NOT an option!

So much for “America is back”, and supporting NATO.

We have shown ourselves as weak, cowardly, incapable fools and Europe is already strongly criticizing us, but internally thinking “if Trump would only be the President!”

Do you miss him yet? Even with his personality flaws, or maybe “because of”, the words deconflict and possible would not have been symbols of our needed measures.

Who Is Minding The Store?


Mind the store: To take charge in someone’s absence. This phrase, dating from about 1920, originally meant literally taking over the business of a store when the owner was temporarily away. Later it was expanded to more general usage, as in:

“She’s on sabbatical leave this semester, so Professor Jones is minding the store.”

There is something very strange happening in our government’s leadership.

It has become apparent in this latest of many crises that President Biden, either by capability or design, is not fully in charge. The crucial question is: who is then?

Never before in our history, a President goes and stays on vacation in a time when American lives are at stake in a foreign country.

Decisions and potential military actions might be needed and our President has as his main duty to protect our country’s citizens. This requires a physical presence and constant meetings with top advisors. Being on vacation is NOT an option.

Even if it were, he would demand a continued physical attendance of his staff.

After a brief report to the Nation that ended with Truman’s slogan “the buck stops here”, he rapidly went back to Camp David’s vacation resort. Important to note, that in his speech before assuming responsibility, he blamed Trump, the Afghan army, military and civil leaders, the population, among others.

So basically the buck had many more stops before arriving at his office. We could think positively and say that Camp Davis has facilities equal to the White House, but the picture above tells a different and sad story. A real Commander in Chief should be physically surrounded by his top people.

His being instructed via zoom does not suffice, it just proves the point that he is not making the decisions in these extremely dangerous times. Who is then?

Not our VP, who is also AWOL, and has proven when tasked to solve problems as not up to the undertaking.

Not the Chair of the Joint Chief of Staff, Gen Mark Milley that has been totally occupied by the analysis of his “white rage”.

Not the Secretaries of State and Defense that have shown in their TV appearances incapable of delivering a clear message.

Are we being led by a consortium of billionaire executives that are looking at China as their future? In fact, presently China has surpassed the US in its military force and is close to doing so in their economy.

Also, even with the censorship of the mainstream and social media, there is clear evidence that they possess damming information on the Biden family, including Joe.

I really do not know, but it is the time for “we the people” to be wary and vigilant. 2022 elections might be our last opportunity to correct our present pathway to submission.

God help us!

“One Democrat who spoke to Obama recalled the former president warning, ‘Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f*** things up,’” Politico reported. “Speaking of his own waning understanding of today’s Democratic electorate, especially in Iowa, Obama told one 2020 candidate: ‘And you know who really doesn’t have it?


Gates, secretary of defense by former President George W. Bush in 2006 and retained by former President Barack Obama until 2011, chronicling his time as defense secretary, said Biden had been “wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”


Biden went on to say that adequate forces and equipment were already in place, adding that he intended for the United States to continue to aid the Afghan government — just not with boots on the ground. One reporter asked whether a Taliban takeover was inevitable once U.S. forces cleared the region, and Biden said it was not. “No, it is not, because the Afghan troops have 300,000 well-equipped — as well-equipped as any army in the world — and an air force against something like 75,000 Taliban. It is not inevitable”

What has and is happening in Afghanistan with the rapid departure of our remaining troops and most important, discontinuing our intelligence and air support to that Nation’s army is nothing short of disgraceful. As such it will be part of our history as a dark passage of our foreign policy.

Many factors and decisions have contributed to this takeover of a country by a band of inhuman killers that will share power with our sworn enemies of Al Qaeda, Isis, and Nations like Iran, China, and Russia.

Politics aside, this tragedy happened under the mandate and instruction of our President Joe Biden. He, as noted above, has never been able to prove his reputation as a foreign policy expert.

So, it was with great interest that I watched his public appearance this afternoon. “Better late than never,” I thought hoping to hear some valid reasons for his actions and an assumption of responsibility. After all, this is the credo of every noted statesman.

Of course, as I truly expected it was not. His first tirade was to blame others including Afghan’s army and leadership, his advisers, and, as usual, former president Trump. Then he criticized the war, our prolonged stay, and late departure, not emphasizing the ordeal was launched by his Obama/Biden administration as the “real needed war” vis a vis Iraq. Then he justified his actions with the rationale of needing to return the troops back to our country.

This was baffling, as this was the same as Trump’s plan that he had just disapproved of. The only, but most important difference, was that in his hurry to outdo Trump; he hurried the withdrawal to an extent that surprised many, mostly the Afghan army and leaders. This army he now blames as cowardly has been successfully holding up against the Taliban with the US only adding air, logistical, and intelligence support.

In short, it was not the plan that failed but the execution. On this, he has only himself to blame as his attempt to justify it because of faulty intelligence or Army leaders’ advice was strongly denied and refuted by them.

In fact, they warned that a rapid withdrawal would indeed bring the chaos, we are now living. After the elimination of Osama Bin Laden, an action that Biden objected to, and the elimination of the first Taliban regime, did we need to stay? Was the neoconservative ideology of “nation-building” wrong? Were both the Iraq and/or Afghanistan wars necessary?

These are legitimate questions, but at present the recent actions backfired, should be condemned, and responsibility assumed by the ones who decided on it. Now we can only hope that the thousands of our citizens and allies that are still in situ are able to evacuate without further loss of life.

Capitalism For Dummies


To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.


Thomas Jefferson, 1816

What has been proposed by the extreme socialist wing of our democrat leaders, will be the end of our economy, based on our forefather’s ideals of protecting property and the fruits of labor.

It should not be a surprise that in every country where a government, by physical control, and or taxation, have not increased the population’s welfare. Even the so-called social/democrat nations that in reality have free trade, few regulations, that produce capital but use taxes to promote welfare programs have, with time, failed.

What happened is the result of the simple laws of the economy. Freedom to create capital has to be accompanied by the freedom to keep it. As taxes increase, the incentive to produce also decreases, resulting in less production and less money for the population’s free programs. So let us give simple facts for dummies that fail to understand;

When individuals acquire billions of dollars by work, creativity, luck, or a combination of factors, what happens with the monies other than attracting envy?

  1. They, do not act as Scrooge McDuck, they use their fortunes acquiring property, or investing it. Why should they have private airplanes, multiple homes, expensive personal effects, etc? When many others lack their basic necessities you ask?

a. For every unneeded luxury acquired there is a need to make, maintain, repair these which takes workers that because of these purchases have employment and capital to live, invest or enjoy. And the money not used for personal luxuries, is not, as the wokes want you to believe, to stuff pillows and mattresses. It goes to banks and the financial markets. These investments benefit our middle class by allowing banks to offer mortgages and loans and stocks to thrive, increasing the values of workers 401 K’s and Ira’s.

b. The socialist’s ideology, that the inability to purchase these apparently unnecessary objects because of huge taxation can then benefit the needy is a ruse. Why?

c. What the ultra-rich pays in taxes, go to bureaucrats who take a big slice of the money before distributing part to those they see as deserving.

d. All the workers that received salaries to fill the desires of the billionaires lose their jobs.

e. For the less fortunate receiving payments from the governing rulers, not only decreases their income but stops the incentive to obtain more. As a result, there are fewer workers, less production, and higher prices for commodities.

f. This exchange of capital not only decreases wealth overall but hinders the normal and basic human rights and desires that our forefathers wished for all like a God-given right. And, last but not least, who gains?

g. The only ones that are the big winners, are the so-called rulers that become the holders of riches without the sacrifice and or ability necessary to create their own.

2. These are the easy-to-understand rules for dummies, and to verify these simple facts look at the fortunes made by our legislators, government officials as our presidents and executives before and after claiming that they are “serving the people”. How much of their fortunes they enjoy were made by personal sacrifice, and how much with the alleged reason of a fair distribution of wealth?

The only answer is that they have become the new upper class, the poor remain poor, and with no inducement to progress the middle class, the basis of any successful regime, disappears.

Once Upon A Time


We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.


Declaration of Independence.

There will be a time in the future when historians will describe a Nation and a system of governing that once upon a time destroyed itself. As we do now, trying to understand the fall of past empires as the Roman, the lingering question will still be; what caused the demise?

I can only speak for myself and my life experience, when young in my country of birth and the rest of my life in this, my adopted country.

Cuba, a small island, had the benefit of being able to combine the ideals and advantages of being very close to the United States, with the European culture of our forefathers. As has been factually demonstrated, Cuba had become a leading state in all parameters, competing favorably with the more successful worldwide.

Even so, our inexperience of being free led to corrupt governments and a population blinded by envy and an unreal desire for materiality over spirituality and sacrifice. Many of us after fighting for democracy and failing settled here, inspired by the ideas so well articulated in the Declaration of Independence.

We have the unique experience of having lived the transformation of an exceptional nation to an abysmal one. Within my 85 years of life, mixing work, family, freedom, and material rewards for my efforts, all the time continuing the efforts against Cuba’s tyrants, I have to be alert to the dangers that we face.

Politicians and corporate leaders are using the same ruse I lived in Cuba which in the past has been employed by fascist and communist regimes. Unfortunately, this is not exclusive in our country, but with the technological advances, the nefarious movement is aimed towards a unique rule over all nations in our world.

We have to be blind to ignore how steadily our basic culture has been eroded, starting with families, education and beliefs. As in Cuba, affluence and envy can change a population and make them easy to exploit. People that once had the desire of being free and the strength of eagles and the wisdom of owls are now behaving like sheep and dunces. And again reliving my Cuba experience our corporations are supporting the “counter-culture, woke-critical theory” sponsors.

So, at this moment we are taught that children decide their gender, our skin color if white defines our character, and makes us all racists, what words can we speak, what books we can read, what movies we can watch, and ad nauseam. And corporations, again as in Cuba, support verbally and financially these movements with the false notion that it guarantees their survival.

What happened with the Castro tyrants? Their wealthy supporters were the first that the regime eliminated! I had the opportunity and fortune to become a top medical administrator in the Veterans Hospital Service and led many co-workers in Florida and Puerto Rico. I saw it as my duty to serve our best people, veterans, dam the bureaucrats! I had the occasion of hiring many to join my efforts. I led myself by the ideals of treating everyone as equal human beings, regardless of their duties, the color of their skin, and advancing the ones that worked harder.

Now American Express is teaching employees that capitalists are by definition racists, (how about them?), and phrases like “I don’t see colors”, “we are all human beings”, and “working hard is rewarded” are microaggressions, which makes me, our forefathers and none other than MLK racists. I will quote him:

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream… I have a dream that one day little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers. I have a dream today… This will be the day when all of God’s children will be able to sing with new meaning. “My country, ’tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim’s pride, from every mountain side, let freedom ring.”

Me and many of my age even while still fighting for freedom and real justice call upon our youth that the time has come to follow Jefferson’s words and declare new independence from those that are opponents of our basic liberties, and the ideology and culture that made us great.

Make no mistake we are in need of a new revolution against the enemies within. Our votes, which they are desperate to control, is our first and maybe the last weapon but our voices, starting to be heard, have to ring loud and clear:

“We are born free, with physical differences but equal in our desires and opportunity, as such we are one and reject the idea that we are divided because of our diverse looks. We believe in family, in a superior force, in the right to worship, in the product of labor, in gender decided by biology not a choice, always respecting our disparities without judgment but eternally united in the love of liberty and country”.
