The European Union’s Love Affair with Cuba

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

A Valentine’s Day Special

In spite of a vibrant conservative movement in countries like France and Spain– the European Union, and its socialist autocrats, continue to increase their shameless economic engagement with the despotic Castro Communist regime in Cuba.

Androulla Vassiliou, who hails from Cyprus, is the EU’s Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth.  After meeting with Cuba’s Foreign Minister, Bruno Rodríguez, Androulla expressed her hopes that an opening of EU negotiations on a new political agreement and “dialogue” with Cuba, will inspire Obama to do the same.

Androulla is obviously a dedicated socialist who along with her colleagues will continue to advance the EU’s “progressive” agenda– with reckless disregard for the 55 years of Communist torture that the Cuban people have endured.

Socialism survives through relationships being forged with totalitarian states, like Cuba and China, until a massive chain of oppression is constructed. Socialists navigate under the banner of “Sustainable Development”– and they are choking the rights of citizens in every region of the world– with the guidance of the United Nations.

SOCIALISTS EAT CAVIAR: Oh, oui, je me souviens de ces plaisirs…

Oh, oui, je me souviens de ces plaisirs… (oh, yes, I remember these pleasures)

Rue Cler, Paris

I remember the day I walked into a gourmet shop on Rue Cler in Paris’ 7th arrondissement.  The shop owner gave me a taste test of his finest caviar.  And because life is nothing but one contrast after another, I chatted with him about growing up during Cuba’s Stalinist period– and spending seven months eating garbanzo beans (which I do not touch to this day).  My mother became an expert at preparing garbanzo beans in every possible way. Today she would put to shame the most creative chef at Noma, in Copenhagen– ranked the best restaurant in the world for its inventive cuisine.

Castro and Caviar

While we were surviving on garbanzo beans, Fidel Castro was eating Russian caviar. Don’t miss the rest of this BRIEF COMMENTARY

THE FRENCH vs. THE BARBARIANS: French parents yank their children from schools in reaction to gender studies

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

The mainstream media is closely observing the conservative protesters in France.

Moi aussi.

These pro-traditional family protesters have successfully pushed Hollande’s Socialist government into a corner– with his pro-homosexual agenda. Don’t miss the rest of this BRIEF COMMENTARY
