Another Side of Cuba: An American says it’s not What he Expected

Do you think that Cubans are poor, starving, desperate, oppressed, unhappy people because of what Fidel Castro brought to that island nation?  Do you think, as our government says, that the best thing for Cubans would be a return to how it was before Castro and the Revolution he headed kicked-out the U.S. puppet dictator Fulgencio Batista, as well as the U.S.Mafia, which controlled the casinos, and the United Fruit Company and other Corporations that had a vice grip on the Cuban economy  –and economy which fed just crumbs to the Cuban underclass?  If you have been conditioned to believe all that, you might want to take a listen to an American businessman fresh back from Cuba.  A businessman who wished to remain anonymous, during this interview with On-

Bad Advice from Obama? ‘New Dems Shouldn’t be Too Bold.’

Former President Barack Obama is taking heavy criticism from some liberal critics, regarding his advice to the ‘New Democrats’ to keep in mind that their bold new programs can be too expensive for the nation.  While not specifically naming Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), he seemed to be referring to such proposals as her Green New Deal, and calls for Universal Health Care. Critics say dire situations require bold moves.  And they point out that Obama had no problem supporting the enormous costs of the wars in the mid-east.

Here’s On-Target’s  Larry Sparano discussing the flak that Obama is taking, with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

After Mueller: What’s Next for Trump?

The President is declaring victory over his critics following the non-conclusions of the Mueller Report regarding Obstruction of Justice, and the affirmative conclusion that there was no “Russian Collusion” on Trump’s part.  But Democrats are making it plain that they will pursue all such matters further –much further.


How much traction will they get, heading into the 2020 elections?  Here’s On-Target’s Larry Sparano, talking about that with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:


Two Reports: Smollett Skates/Voters Don’t Care about Mueller Probe

He staged a false racial attack, caused the Chicago Police Department to spend tons of money and man hours, inflamed racial tensions in a city already rent by violence and hatred  –and now it’s just, uh, ‘never mind?  A great deal if you can get it.  And Jussie Smollett did!

And in a second report, polling shows that voters don’t give a rat’s, uh posterior, about the results of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s exhaustive, 22-month long, 31 million dollar investigation into Trump’s activities.  Considering such polling, how much longer should Democrats and other critics continue to harp on Trump’s alleged “Russian Collusion?”   Here’s On-Target’s Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York in discussion of both topics.  First, Smollett:


Trump Putin Handshake

Mueller Report: Will Democrats’ Search for “Collusion” Continue?

Although President Trump says it spells the end of all those “phony” accusations against him regarding Russian collusion, Democrats say it is far from over.  They are instantly calling into question Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s conclusions that Trump did not work with the Russians to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.  If what Trump calls the “witch hunt” continues, does it work for or against the President as he seeks a second term?  Here’s an exchange between On-Target’s Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Two Separate Reports: Racial Graffiti/Biden’s Baggage

We have two reports for you today:  First, a story about why a black family decided not to cover up racial graffiti scrawled on their house.  Second, a separate report on what political baggage Joe Biden will drag with him if he decides to enter the 2020 presidential race.  Both conversation are between On-Target’s Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:


The Mueller Investigations: Not enough to make it stick?

Rumors are flying in Washington about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia.  Many expect the Mueller report to be released shortly, and many believe Mueller’s got the goods to nail the president of the United States.  Various news organizations are reporting in detail what Mueller has dug up so far. But is it enough to drive Donald Trump from office, and possibly put him in prison?  In a conversation with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York, On-Target’s Larry Sparano says so far, the Mueller probe falls far short of what Trump’s critics are hoping will prove that the President allowed and even encouraged Russia to influence the election that got him elected to the highest office in the land:

Internet Recruitment of Terrorists: Does Stopping It Mean the End of the 1st Amendment?

The massacre at the mosque in New Zealand has renewed calls for censoring the content of the Internet.  How can the digital giants stop the internet from being used as a recruitment tool for terrorism?  On-Target’s Larry Sparano warns of the dangers of the slippery slope ahead, as corporate and government interests

move toward control of what we’re allowed to see and hear on the Internet.  Here’s Larry with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio, New York:

New Zealand Shootings: Is Trump Really the Blame?

The massacre of worshipers at a mosque in New Zealand has renewed accusations that President Trump is responsible for the surge in hate crimes in the U.S. and around the world.  In a manifesto, the white supremacist who shot and killed 50 people

cites Trump as a symbol of White Pride, with whom he shares a common purpose. But On-Target’s Larry Sparano says such violence can’t be blamed solely on Trump, but also on the Democrats and Republicans and corporate and other special interests who laid the groundwork for what’s now occurring around the globe.  Here’s Larry in conversation with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:

Will He be the Next President of the United States?

Beto O’Rourke says he’s in.  He joins a growing field of Democratic contenders for the big prize.  Can he make it all the way to the White House his first time around?   On-Target’s Larry Sparano  and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York discuss O’Rourke’s strengths and weaknesses as he aims high -very high:
