What on many occasions appeared as clumsiness or frank inefficiency, has been nothing more than a bipartisan project destined to fail.
It is still a good way out for Donald Trump’s ego and his supporters’ aspirations: to launch his presidential candidacy again in 2024.
QAnon exemplifies the appeal conspiracy theories have in US society today, but it goes beyond this. It has made its way into the White House.
With Trump in the White House, a line of alleged confrontation has made a comeback, which only stands out for its lack of effectiveness.
Music censorship has flared its ugly head in Miami again. The intolerance of yelling groups, who are against any artist coming from Cuba to perform…

Once again, Pastors for Peace have gone on their Caravan to Cuba. They have done this 30 times before, ever since 1992. More than a humanitarian mission, the propaganda organization has a very clear objective: to seek out new followers and disseminate an idyllic image of the Cuban regime.
Some Cubans have been aware of the similarities between Italian fascism and the Cuban government, for decades already. They aren’t just pure coincidence.
