President Barack Obama will pay an official visit to Cuba in the wake of his ground breaking moves to normalize relations with the island nation that used to be America’s mafia dominated playground.
Congressional Republicans so far have refused to lift the economic and travel embargo meant to defeat the Castro Communist regime despite its obvious failure.
President Obama will spend three days in Cuba and meet with President Raul Castro, attend dinners, tour Cuba and meet with dissidents. Former President Fidel Castro is not expected to meet with President Obama.
In the meantime U.S. airlines and a major hotel chain are seeking to open up the Cuban market. Limited Cuban travel is now allowed under restrictions.
Oh yeah, France and Canada are back in Cuba . . . .

Federal lawsuit filed against LA Police for confiscating the property of homeless residents
Los Angeles seal 1Los Angeles Calif. — A federal lawsuit has been filed against the City of Los Angeles and its Police Department by homeless residents whose private property is being stolen by police who harass them.
Charging that their civil rights are being violated in a campaign to criminalize homelessness the suit was filed here last Monday in U.S. District Court.
Attorney Shayla Meyers for the homeless charges that the police have increased their practice of illegally seizing and destroying their property.
One 62-year-old plaintiff had his shopping cart and back pack taken with all of his medications and medical appointments in it. He was turned back out on the streets in the middle of the night.
The city has an unfunded five-year plan to build homes for them but the money is never available. In 2014 the city spent 90 per cent of a $87 million dollar budget to harass the homeless.
We can find money to persecute the poor and homeless, but not a red cent to help them . . . .
