Cuba: Is Obama Communist Friendly?

Cuba:  Is Obama Communist Friendly? 
Obama exceeds his authority again. Has Obama ever cared about the rule of law?

Obama is either the worst negotiator we have ever had as president, or’ Obama is Communist friendly, ‘you decide’

While Cuba’s release of a Jewish American hostage Alan Gross is to be welcomed, (Gross has vegetated in a Cuban jail for five years for the so-called crime of bringing computers to Jews) but exchanging three hardened Cuban spies for him and abolishing the nearly 60 year embargo, establishes a wrong moral and legal equivalency. Worse, it extends the American recognition of ‘Cuba’s Communist Dictatorial Regime’, it harms U.S. national interests and fails any advance of freedom in Cuba.

Obamas “Fact Sheet” on Cuba makes it clear that the U.S. received nothing in exchange for its many and substantial concessions to Havana’s Communist Regime. In essence, after five years of “negotiations,” the White House ended up where Raul Castro started: Gross would be exchanged for three Cuban spies whose activities led to the death of an American in the 1990s
The announcement that “the president has instructed the secretary of state to immediately initiate discussions with Cuba on the re-establishment of diplomatic relations with Cuba,” also gives in to a longstanding Castro demand. Cubans will not gain freedom of expression, of association, of thought or of anything else as a result.

Yes, Obama is either the worst negotiator we have ever had as president, or’ Obama is Communist friendly, ‘you decide’.  After half a century, we received absolutely nothing in exchange for our many and substantial concessions to Havana’s Communist regime.

Moreover, Obamas explanation that he was acting because “U.S. policy towards Cuba has isolated the United States from regional and international partners,” shows degrees of irresponsibility that should put fear into Israel and other allies for which American support brings condemnation of the U.S. at the United Nations and other international relations.

Obama obviously has decided to act on his own because he faced little opposition from Congress when he overreached his authority and acted on his own by giving amnesty to 5 million illegal immigrants. Congress needs to act now, or Obama simply will move on to the many other items on his bucket list.

Congress must make it abundantly clear to Obama that he does not have the authority to lift the embargo on Cuba on his own. Doing so violated U.S. law, for starters the Helms-Burton Act, and then yet another unconstitutional end run around the Congress.

The Senate should also make it clear they will not allow the appointment of an ambassador to Cuba to proceed, until there have been changes on the island and look into the possibility of using policy riders in the upcoming Department of Homeland Security appropriations debate in February and the fiscal year 2016 appropriations process to deny the president funds for setting up relations
THE BOTTOM LINE: The only conclusion that can be drawn from Obamas Illegal unconstitutional actions, especially in his second term, is that he is turning the presidency into a dictatorship with the blessing of Congress and the American people.  I say that because, except for a little posturing and grumbling, he receives almost no opposition in his continuous violation of U.S. Constitutional law.  Moreover this amounts to unconditional surrender to the Communist Tyranny of Cuba.

One can only wonder what a Republican Congress will do…
