As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Reports: Obama to Announce Big Changes to U.S. Cuba Policy

President Obama has  secured the release of Alan Gross, a U.S. contractor who had been imprisoned in Cuba since 2009, and will talk about it and other major changes he is making to U.S. Cuba policy, according to reports.

Obama is set to speak from the White House an noon Eastern Time. I will live stream it for you.

According to CNN:

U.S. contractor Alan Gross, held by the Cuban government since 2009, was freed Wednesday as part of a landmark deal with Cuba that paves the way for a major overhaul in U.S. policy toward the island, senior administration officials tell CNN.

President Obama is expected to announce Gross’ release at noon.

Gross’ “humanitarian” release by Cuba was accompanied by a separate spy swap, the officials said. Cuba also freed a U.S. intelligence source who has been jailed in Cuba for more than 20 years, although authorities did not identify that person for security reasons. The U.S. released three Cuban intelligence agents convicted of espionage in 2001

President Barack Obama is also set to announce a broad range of diplomatic and regulatory measures in what officials called the most sweeping change in U.S. policy toward Cuba since the 1961 embargo was imposed.

I don’t know, but I smell more unilateral actions on the way . . .

  1. Please read the corruption with the Edudor criminal bankers living n Miami under Obamas protection after giving .Hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations and helped by Hillary Clinton and US senator Mendenoz from New Jersey wow this will blow your mind

  2. Just heard on FOX that the Pope played a large part in the release of Mr. Gross. Also, Stuart Varney reported that because of the oil collapse and the ruble collapse, Obama has just gained enormous economic power throughout the world. It’s about oil. And, of course, our oil glut is due in large part to fracking!
    It pains me no end to see Obama inheriting such power from his arch enemy – oil !!! Good luck in trying to re-write the Cuba policy – it’s ironclad. This should be veddy interesting.

    • Don’t worry we’ll soon be weak — no way the environmentalists et al allow America to be energy independent and strong.

      Ambassador has to be approved and embassy etc has to be funded. I suspect the funding will be from discretionary fund that Obama uses to fund his decisions willy nilly and the Ambassador if not approved, will be sent without approval but with the blessing of Obama and the Pope. This oughta’ be good — my bet is on one of the LaRaza Castro brothers.

  3. Interpretation, the Democrats have lost Florida for the foreseeable future so this is an excellent opportunity to normalize relations with Cuba and anticipate that the Cuban community in Florida will forget about the insult in the next close election cycle. Actually, it is time to reverse our stance on Cuba.

  4. He can’t work out a relationship with Israel, but he’s adding another notch to his belt for caving to our enemies. Just inconceivable we ever elected this evil man.

  5. Today the commie dictator of Mexico North (former USA) is, by his command normalizing relations with his kindred spirit nation of Cuba.
    The peasant surfs of Mexico North hardly notice as they were happy shopping for the celebration once called Christmas. Now know as “happy holiday”
    They gazed in to their iPhone 6 + or Galaxy 5 and shopped for a new PS4 and hoping to get the game “destiny” to play on it.
    Not a care in the world except for student loans and many very large credit card bills.
    “Merry Happy Holiday to all ” the dick tater declared in Farsi and again in Spanish. English sub titles were provided for the less fortunate, as he entered his personal 747 to fly off for sun and fun.
