Buffett, Munger Praised Chinese Communists, But Cubans Rock Regime – Biggest Anti-Communist Govt Protests in 60 Years, plus Manufactured Home Stock Updates


Aubrey Huff’s twitter feed describes him like this. “Proud father, international model, & 2 time WS Champ. I believe in God, free speech, America, guns, whiskey, & toxic masculinity. CEO Alpha American.” On July 27, 2020 he tweeted, “It’s easy to be a communist in a free country. But try being free in a communist country.” Huff’s words are being repeated in various forms about a year later as Cubans are taking to the streets in protest against their supposedly socialist-communist ‘dream state’ regime.

As Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger recently praised Communist China, the picture of just how pro-authoritarian many billionaires appear to be.

Former longtime Democrat and Washington Post writer Joel Kotkin laid out the connections between facism and big corporate businesses.




It is with that backdrop that the following from the WND Newscenter’s report on protests in Communist Cuba should be a wake up call for Americans who are watching their freedoms in the U.S.A. slip away. The WND report is used with permission. Depending on the source, some say these are the worst protests in 20, 30, or perhaps 60 years against the Communist regime in Cuba.


Cuban president urges ‘revolutionary’ citizens to counter protesters

QuoteSignSymbol100x156Sen. Ted Cruz predicts ‘dustbin of history’ for regime that caused family to flee

Published July 12, 2021 at 2:56pm

After the biggest public protest in three decades, Cuba’s communist dictator called on “revolutionary” citizens to defend the regime.

President Miguel Diaz-Canel, who also is the leader of the Communist Party, blamed the U.S. for the uprising, the Washington Post reported.

“The order to fight has been given – into the street, revolutionaries!” he said in an address to the nation.

“We are calling on all the revolutionaries in the country, all the communists, to hit the streets wherever there is an effort to produce these provocations,” Diaz-Canel said, according to Reuters.

Three years ago, Diaz-Canel became the first leader of the communist regime outside the Castro family.

On Sunday, thousands took to the streets in cities across the island nation shouting “freedom” and “down with the dictatorship.” In response, the government deployed tear gas and detained dozens of protesters.

“The people are dying of hunger!” one woman shouted during a protest captured on video in the province of Artemisa, the New York Times reported. “Our children are dying of hunger!”

It was the biggest protest against the regime since the so-called Maleconazo uprising in 1994, which led to a wave of Cubans fleeing the country by sea. But Cuban activist Carolina Barrero went further, the Times reported, calling it the “most massive popular demonstration to protest the government that we have experienced in Cuba since ’59,” the year Fidel Castro took power.

“What has happened is enormous,” she said by text to the Times.

Amid the worst economic conditions in decades, Cuba has experienced a resurgence of coronavirus cases. The pandemic has shut off the nation’s tourism dollars, exacerbating shortages that require people to wait in long lines for basic goods.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, whose father fled Cuba, said on Twitter the regime will be “consigned to the dustbin of history.”

“It has brutalized & denied freedom to generations of Cubans, and forced my family & so many others to flee,” he wrote. “The American people stand squarely with the men & women of Cuba and their noble fight for liberty.”

He explained the hope once was that closer commercial ties with China would influence the communist regime’s political system.

But, he explained, “The reverse happened. When you look at what China’s leader, President Xi Jinping, has done in the last seven years, China has become more repressive internally, more aggressive internationally, and more dangerous militarily.” ##

Weeks before others in the mainstream media began to flash their ‘inflation warnings,’ MHProNews added first the top, then later the second notice above. When someone has even a basic understanding of the principles of economics, ‘inflation’ was predictable. The question is, will hyper-inflation follow? There are voices on both sides of that debate.
