The Brett Kavanaugh Charade

The Brett Kavanaugh Charade
One of the great things about retirement is that you get to pick and choose how you spent your time.  Hallelujah!  My preferred choice this week was watching the Senate’s Judiciary Committee confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh - Trump’s Associate Justice nominee to the Supreme Court of the U.S.

T.V. coverage began on Tuesday, September 4th. As far as I know,  only two channels covered the hearing – Fox News and C-Span 2.  No need to tell you, I switched between these two stations like it was going out of style.  I really didn’t want to miss anything.

The NFL Desecration

Jun 15, 2018 — Obie Usategui

The NFL Desecration
As you all might have noticed, a recent headline news was the story of President Trump disinviting the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles from a planned White House celebration of the team’s Super Bowl championship – a celebration which has now become sort of a tradition. Less than 24 hours before the players were expected to arrive in the Rose Garden, Trump made his announcement.

Trump’s decision came amid some Eagle players saying they would skip the ceremony in protest to the president and his rhetoric – a movement which started with former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, as the latter pioneered sitting down and/or taking a knee during the playing of the national anthem. Trump’s righteous decision to uninvite the players, not only was a gallant “first-ever” but, just as well, opened the gates for a flood of disparagement and condemnation from the left in the nation, which, then again, should come as no surprise whatsoever, as, no matter what Trump does, even if he were to make every American wealthy tomorrow, liberal-democrats – a term which to me is synonymous with “Marxists / communists”, would find something off-beam with the man. What else is new, I ask?


May 19, 2018 — Obie Usategui

I don’t know about you, but for me, the names of James Comey and Robert Mueller have become symbolic of a delusional paranoia to where I am continuously overwhelmed by a chronic persecution complex as though these two were following me around everywhere I go – mind you, not nice at all. Time to go to the shrink maybe. To add insult to injury, as far as I am concerned, every day there seems to be a new twist in the infamous investigation of the alleged collusion of Donald Trump with Russia in the interference of the latter with the 2016 Presidential elections.

As you can probably tell by now, virtually every single day, there is a new angle, a new leak, a new breakthrough headline in the investigation. The web of details has gotten so magnanimously intricate and complex, I dare say, for many of us in mainstream America, we have simply lost track of what the hell is going on – it’s that convoluted. Make no mistake my friends, sadly enough, if made into a T.V., daytime soap opera, the Trump investigation would surely give General Hospital, Days of our Lives, One Life to Live, and the rest of them a run for their money in the Nielsen ratings – no doubt at all in my mind.

State of the Union

Feb 4, 2018 — Obie Usategui

State of the Union
Nearly 46 million people—not including the internet—watched President Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday, January 30th. Chances are you were one of them, I bet – I know I did.  Got to tell you folks, every time I write about politics and political themes, most of the time, if not all the time, I do so because I feel compelled to speak out – that simple.  Whenever I do it, I really have no idea whatsoever how many people are really going to read my posts or how many people I will be able to touch and impact with my narratives, but there is that need, after all, to exorcise so that at least I know I can go to sleep with myself. 

After watching Trump’s SOU address,  I not only felt compelled to write this chronicle today, but moreover I felt overwhelmingly duty-bound to do so, if only because what I saw went on to confirm, hands down, if ever so convincingly, all of what I have been relentlessly harping-on for years – to wit, the fact that our glorious United States of America, has come ever so close to losing its status as the world’s bastion of liberty, freedom and democracy.  And that alone folks, should be cause for concern to every honest American who loves and respects our Constitutional Republic.

The Harvey Weinstein Saga

Oct 17, 2017 — Obie Usategui

Well folks, what can I tell you about this despicable Harvey Weinstein animal that hasn’t been already told? For a week now, this low-life Weinstein has been at center stage, playing the leading role in a sexual harassment scandal which has gotten more attention than the Las Vegas Massacre and the N.F.L., anthem kneeling story both put together – but, don’t kid yourselves, there is a good reason for it. Other than the story itself it seems that, for once, Hollywood’s safely-guarded Pandora’s Box, once opened has skeletons streaming out in swarming hordes. Ask me and I say: about time, isn’t it?

Anyways, just in case that you, for some strange reason happened to have missed all the hullabaloo, let me try and give you a quick précis of what is going on. First, Harvey Weinstein, besides being an alleged sexual predator, which we now know he is, in addition, he also happens to be an American film producer and former studio director. The Hollywood mogul, together with brother Bob, co-founded Miramax which produced multiple independent films all enjoying great success culminating in the winning of an Academy Award for his production Shakespeare In Love, also garnering seven Tony Awards for producing a variety of winning plays and musicals. Ironically, in 2004, the predator was appointed CBE - an honorary Commander of the Order of the British Empire in recognition of his contributions to the British film industry. As one can imagine, with the successes came an immense amount of wealth to this sick puppy.


Oct 9, 2017 — Obie Usategui

I don’t know about you, but after what transpired in Las Vegas last Sunday, October 1st, we must all ask ourselves, what is our world coming to? What kind of a world are we living in – a world, I should say, capable of nurturing such hatred as that fostered by this Las Vegas’ animal Stephen Paddock. As far as I was concerned such a behavior was typically reserved for wild animals. For a presumably tamed human being of the twenty-first century to go out on a rampant killing spree of other humans is, to say the least, “unthinkable”. For this animal to go out and in a frenzy, take the lives of 58 and hurt 527 innocent lives who had merely gone out to have a good time in a Country Music concert is simply put: preposterous - young people’s lives who minutes before the savage massacre had joined together in singing “God Bless America”, while unbeknown to 58 of them, this would be their last chant on this earth. What an irony!

Thoughts on the Passing of Irma

Sep 14, 2017 — Obie Usategui

First, my best wishes to all my friends in the State of Florida, where I have resided since October 1960 when I first left my native island of Cuba.  I pray that you all came out unharmed from the devastation left behind by hurricane Irma – potentially one of the worst hurricanes in U.S. history. If you, like me, just had “minor” damages such as fallen trees, fences, or otherwise are going through a power-outage and are suffering heat-strokes and panic attacks due to hotness in the aftermath of Irma, just count your blessings. 

Think of this way, hundreds of thousands in the Florida Keys and the islands of the Caribbean today are homeless, statistical victims of Irma - a storm that flattened their homesteads in its path of destruction - not to mention the 36 people who lost their lives to this unparalleled catastrophe. A friendly reminder to all on how vulnerable and insignificant we humans are when faced-up to the wrath of God and mother nature.

The Charlottesville Rally

Aug 18, 2017 — Obie Usategui

August 11th and 12th, Charlottesville, Virginia—The “Unite the Right” rally, a/k/a the “Charlottesville rally”.  Just another rally, maybe?  Presumably, the First Amendment of the Constitution explicitly provides for the ‘right of the people to peaceably assemble and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances’.  Oh, but wait, one very crucial point in all this verbiage, is the key word “peaceably” - inclined or disposed to avoid strife or dissension; not argumentative or hostile.  So…what does the First Amendment provide for?  Does it provide for the right of angry mobs to remove monuments and memorials from public spaces?  Or…does it provide for individuals to use violence, attack, and even kill each other just to prove their vantage point?

The Comey Circus

Jun 12, 2017 — Obie Usategui

As you all may have heard, last month, on Sunday, May 21st, Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus, billed as “The Greatest Show on Earth”, received a standing ovation on its final performance after 146 years in existence. For many of us baby boomers, the show became a part of our lives, as most of us in our childhood looked forward every year to the Circus coming to town.

But, fret not friends, there are other circuses now replacing the old bastion. And, guess what? This new garden-variety comes free almost daily. Better yet, we don’t even have to leave our homes, as their shows can be viewed on national television almost every day. How about that? The most recent version of Ringling’s replacement was ex-FBI Director James Comey’s much hyped testimony at Capitol Hill before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Pour Hillary Back into the Chardonnay Bottle

May 29, 2017 — Obie Usategui

Case you missed it, last Friday, after a prolonged post-election Sabbatical, Hillary Rodham Clinton emerged to give a commencement speech at her alma mater Wellesley College, located west of Boston – [the] birthplace of Clinton’s socialist / communist ideals. Back 48 years after her radical rendezvous with community organizer and renown U.S. hater Saul Alinsky, we got to see this loser disguised in a cap and gown, giving a s hate-simmered fiery address alluding to the controversies swirling around Donald Trump’s imperiled presidency, comparing it to Richard Nixon’s demise.

Some of Clinton’s ill-advised remarks in the commencement speech, referred to Nixon’s failed presidency back in the day. “We were furious about the past presidential election of a man [Nixon] whose presidency would eventually end in disgrace with his impeachment for obstruction of justice, after firing the person running the investigation into him at the Department of Justice,” said Clinton, referring back to the sentiment on campus the year that she graduated.

The Revolution

May 2, 2017 — Obie Usategui

Depending on your viewing preference, whether you, like me, are addicted to Fox News or whether you prefer “fake” news, such as CNN and MSNBC, the term used by Donald Trump to describe these two liberal mainstream media outlets, as he on Saturday told a boisterous crowd of supporters at a rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, to celebrate his 100th day in office, your viewing preference, mind you, will pretty much tell the rest of us which side of the fence, politically speaking, you are on.  Unfortunately, the two principal sides now stand radically apart from each other.

While democracy is still around, never mind how long it will last, you and I will still have a choice as to which channel to watch, which newspaper to read, or what radio talk-show to listen to, thus we will have a choice as to which President Trump you chose to follow, the next coming of the Messiah, or the anti-Christ prophecy come true, depending obviously on the media outlet of choice.  By the same token, if you are one of those that is worried about Armageddon, you may want to follow North Korea’s Kim Jon-un repeated threats to launch his nuclear ballistic missiles, or you may, on the other hand, listen to anthropogenic or global warming mongrels propagate the extinction of mankind due to increased global temperatures.  Your call, your choice.

America’s Resurgence

Apr 11, 2017 — Obie Usategui

As you might or might not have noticed, I have taken, as of late, another Sabbatical from writing my customary blogs on Facebook and Canada Free Press [CFP], which I typically do at such times when I am overwhelmed by all that is going on around me, in these very critical times in we live.  As you well know, most, if not all,  my postings are political in nature but, then again, in the last few weeks I found practically nothing to write about, other than, perhaps, an unending crusade of tirades, diatribes, and harangues, sponsored, if you will, by a coalition of frustrated diehard democrats, led mostly by a failed mainstream media, specifically set out to abolish Donald Trump and all he stands for in his undertakings as our new president.

I was not going to, mind you, cave into the unrelenting attention-seeking tactics that have driven all these Soros-sponsored scumbags—including but not limited to the disparaging and tiring accusation of Trump and his campaign aides’ fabricated association in some sort of made-for-Hollywood collusion plot with Russia to manipulate the election results.  For God’s sake, will they ever accept the fact that plainly and simply-put they lost the elections, among other things because, first, their candidate, Hillary R. Clinton, was nothing short of a career criminal and second, because the incumbent party and their president had literally destroyed our nation, and, most of us were clamoring for a change.

The Beginning of a Presidency

Jan 28, 2017 — Obie Usategui

I have to be honest with you folks, when I first learned of Donald Trump’s announcement of his candidacy for President of the United States back on June 6, 2015, I, like many in the nation I presume, did not really take the guy for real at all.  I thought the real estate mogul, reality T.V. celebrity, and marketing genius, was, once again, just using the “political arena”, as a gimmick for God knows what ulterior motive to add a couple of billions more to the existing cornucopia – anything and everything other than really aspiring to becoming the 45th POTUS.

The Aftermath of the Election

Dec 26, 2016 — Obie Usategui


If you, like I, have been trying to keep abreast of the so-called presidential transition, you must have noticed that just about every other headline or front-page news, bar none, has something to do with the democrats’ incessant war to disavow the election of Donald Trump on November 8th, as our next president. I think I have heard and seen it all. Immediately following the elections, the nation was stunned when for three days in a row we watched as anti-Trump protesters went wild all over the nation, turning violent, rioting, vandalizing businesses, and disrupting traffic in thruways in major cities throughout the nation – all as their sign of protest for Mr. Trump’s landslide, undeniable victory of the elections.

Thoughts on the Death of Dictator Fidel Castro

Dec 2, 2016 — Obie Usategui

It was about 1:00 a.m., Saturday night, when my wife woke me up to tell me of the passing of Fidel Castro. As I was still half-sleep, and in lieu of the fact that, in our wishful ways, we, the Cuban-Americans in exile, had killed Castro many times over in the past, the “Cry Wolf” syndrome kicked-in as a ‘defense mechanism’ to spare me the emotional roller coaster, which had made us, time and time again, go from exhilarating highs to lugubrious downs as we realized we were always dealing with grapevine rumors, if only to be incredibly disappointed at the end.

Let Go…Please!

Nov 26, 2016 — Obie Usategui

Hi friends. For a while there, I thought that Trump’s triumph would have me laying low as far having not much to say, politically speaking that is, as I thought, really, we were lacking talking points, other than perhaps, say, some trivial ‘transition-process’ issues, not quite as exhilarating as we had gotten used to, throughout the presidential campaign, especially at the tail-end of it, as all of you Neo-Marxists did take for granted that your corrupt candidate would win it all, did you not? And…I guess you know what happened, did you not?
Notwithstanding, some actual highpoints of the transition process, some bordering on controversies, such as has been, Mitt Romney’s consideration for Secretary of State, the one talking point that has awe-struck me in the aftermath of one the greatest upsets ever in political history, bar none, has been how some of you diehard, Trump-haters, have not gotten pass Tuesday, November 8th, and are, in fact, still recycling the fact that Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in what was an outright, startling, unexpected, and totally unforeseen victory - the fact that your corrupt candidate lost to a landslide victory by your nemesis, albeit, is something which many of you will not concede to this day – probably never will.

Lessons To Be Learned

Nov 14, 2016 — Obie Usategui

Well, first, I want to congratulate every single one of you out there who voted for Donald Trump.  I forgot the last time in my life where I felt so electrifying overjoyed – one which typically comes with something great happening albeit, something totally startling and unexpected such as was Donald Trump’s triumph on November 8th, 2016 – a date which shall go down in the annals of history as the day the United States of America was reborn.

In the weeks preceding the election, I had written a couple of articles, to wit, “Hope I am Wrong” and “Game Over”, both of which, I concede, offered a rather gloomy outlook on Trump’s chances of winning the elections –  I admit, to be one of the many who fell victim to the innocuous if yet masterfully deceitful polls, none of which ever gave Trump a true chance of winning the presidency. That, coupled with an overwhelming crusade of negative publicity, made me somewhat succumb to the public opinion’s misguided assessment of Trump’s chances of winning this election.

My Last Plea

Nov 6, 2016 — Obie Usategui

Unbeknownst to many Americans, October 28th, 2016, may very well go down in the history books as an unprecedented political milestone –one which may, in fact, change the course of history of this great land of ours, the United States of America. I refer, if you will, to the contentious announcement made on this date by James B. Comey, acting Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation [FBI], on the re-opening of the earlier investigation conducted by this agency, regarding the alleged illegal use of her private server by aspiring presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, while in her role as Secretary of State, commonly referred to as the “e-mail” scandal.

Game Over

Oct 18, 2016 — Obie Usategui

Yes, friends, anyone who has been following the presidential campaign over the past couple of weeks, even the most praetorian republicans amongst us, have to realize that the time has come fess-up to reality while understanding that candidate Donald Trump will never become the next president of this great land of ours.  That is right, I said Trump will never be our next president, meaning Hillary Clinton will become the first woman ever to hold that office in the history of the nation.

I have come to this rudimentary conclusion, not based on the highly devious national polls, which, in my humble opinion, are, in fact, as corrupt as is everything else in what’s left of this great country of ours, mind you, but on the self-evident truths of the clustered future now looming in our horizon - our new United States of America; a far cry from the once glorious Constitutional Republic which proudly served as bastion of hope for all of mankind – all of it, amidst a magnanimous ideological revolution set-out to transforming the nation in ways which, I dare say, not many Americans even comprehend, if yet are willing to support and sponsor.

The Great Debate

Sep 30, 2016 — Obie Usategui

Once again, let me preface my comments and thoughts on the Hofstra presidential debate by making it very clear to you all that, I am, first and foremost a staunch republican, a tried-and-true conservative and a steadfast supporter of Donald Trump to be the next president of the United States of America.  Just about a month ago, on August 29th, I took to writing my article ‘I Hope I am Wrong’.  In it, I kindheartedly conceded the victory of the next presidential elections to Hillary Clinton by virtue of the fact, that a great majority of Americans, simply put, have succumbed to a culture of Marxism and Communism, readily perceived in just about every fabric of our New Republic – a culture led by Barack Obama with his commitment of transforming this great nation made back on October 30th, 2008, just before he was elected as the 44th president of the U.S. – a commitment which will be unreservedly continued by Hillary Clinton, were she to become the next president of the United States. 

No sooner had I published my capitulation article, in the weeks that followed, all national polls soon began to prove me wrong, showing Mr. Trump’s legendary come-from-behind race for the presidency, as margins tightened and the tie turned in Trump’s favor even in some key swing states, such as Iowa, North Carolina and Ohio, while in others, like Nevada and Florida, polls showed both candidates being in a dead-heat well within the margins of error.  Before I knew it then, polls were making me second-guess myself as to my unwanted concession, and, in fact, even made me think twice, on how wrong I could be, paying homage, if you will, to the title chosen for my article – mind you, a blessing in disguise when it is all said and done.
