Massive protests erupted on Sunday in Cuba as citizens of the island nation demanded an end to the communist dictatorship as they suffer in poverty while having limited freedom.
“In a country known for repressive crackdowns on dissent, the rallies were widely viewed as astonishing,” The New York Times reported. “Activists and analysts called it the first time that so many people had openly protested against the Communist government since the so-called Maleconazo uprising, which exploded in the summer of 1994 into a huge wave of Cubans leaving the country by sea.”
“That number continues to increase every day as more and more people update their registrations… I have little doubt that the total number will eventually meet and then exceed President Biden’s margin of victory in Georgia.” National File
Multiple drones targeted Balad Airbase in northern Iraq on Wednesday, resulting in no casualties; Iranian-backed militias have been the culprit in past attacks; A base at Baghdad International Airport was also targeted.
Another attack occurred in Iraq on Wednesday, targeting the Balad Airbase located north of Baghdad. No casualties or even damage was reported following the event, and like previous attacks, Iranian-backed militia groups are suspected to be the source. Balad has been a frequent hotspot for Iranian-sponsored attacks due to the US presence.
In what is a certain concern for the US military, the attacks this week took place via explosive suicide drones that are difficult for the US military to detect on its radar systems due to the low altitude at which the drones fly.
An additional attack was reported as having taken place at the Baghdad International Airport, where another base is located. Several injuries have been inflicted due to these recurring militia attacks, and one foreign contractor was killed several weeks ago.
One source has reported that the US military is now offering a significant reward for anyone who can offer information regarding the source of Wednesday’s attack.

Texas Democratic official is facing calls to resign from his post after calling Senator Tim Scott (R., S.C.) a racial slur.
After Scott delivered his rebuttal speech to President Biden’s congressional address on Wednesday, Lamar County Democratic Party chair Gary O’Connor called Scott an “oreo,” a slur that refers to a black person who is seen as “having adopted the attitudes, values and behavior thought to be characteristic of middle-class white society, often at the expense of his or her own heritage,” according to
Backlash continued to grow against Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters (CA) on Sunday over remarks that she made late Saturday night where she encouraged activists to “get more confrontational” on “the street” if Derek Chauvin is not convicted of murdering George Floyd.
When asked about what activists should do if Chauvin is not convicted, Waters said that they must “stay on the street.”
“And we’ve got to get more active. [We’ve] got to get more confrontational,” she said. “[We’ve] got to make sure that they know we mean business.”
As scientists have established, each known case represents what they say is an exponentially higher number of actual incidences that go unreported/undetected. Which is why they would pause a vaccination based on “5-6 cases.” It’s not really based on 5-6 cases.
So there is a “lot” of issues going on with many people.
Most Americans who voted for President Biden did so hoping for a return to “normalcy.” Because of the media’s constant demonizing of President Trump, they were convinced that a President like Biden would introduce some calm and let them worry a little less about politics for a while.
Since his inauguration, though, Biden has been one of the most radical Presidents America has ever had, a progressive in the model of FDR or LBJ, but with even more radical policies.
And now, Biden is acting on one of the far Left’s most extreme threats: packing the court. The White House announced its intentions to create a commission to study court-packing. Hopefully, Biden doesn’t have the votes in the Senate to pack the Court even if he wants to, but even this first action is troubling.
