IBTimes: Miguel Diaz-Canel Likely To Succeed Raul Castro

The one constant in Cuba in the last six decades has been a Castro holding the reins of power. But with Friday’s death of Fidel and the fact his younger brother Raul is 85, attention is turning to the next generation of Cuban leaders.

Miguel Diaz-Canel, 55, currently serves as Raul Castro’s vice president and is his apparent successor. He has been working his way up the hierarchy for 30 years, first in provincial positions and then as minister of higher education. When he was 43, he became a member of the Politburo, the youngest ever. Most of the other members fought in the 1959 revolution.

An electrical engineer by trade and a Beatles fan, Diaz-Canel is a social media devotee, often posting pictures of himself and the younger Castro brother.

America’s Quarterly said in a profile last year Diaz-Canel generally keeps a low profile. He was born after the revolution and is a member of the reform wing of the party, more an experienced manager than ideologue. Unlike the Castros, he dresses in jeans and sports jackets, eschewing military fatigues.

A very unfortunate picture of Trudeau. Happily rubbing elbows with Cuban tyrants. Less than 2 weeks ago! He looks like the baby-faced naive that he is.

Hi everyone, I'm so excited.
My ex-boyfriend is back after a breakup,I’m extremely happy that will are living together again.
My name is Mary Wilkie from England.
My boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity. If you have any problem contact Dr.Unity now and i guarantee you that he will help you.Email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com ,you can also call him or add him on Whats-app: +2348071622464 ,His website: http://unityspelltemple.yolasite.com .

I'll stick to the comment that I wanted to write when I saw WNU's prediction.

It shows if a person is erudite and has paid attention. the markets only go 6 months out. Maybe the market for political forecast is different.

Still it takes guts to lay it on the line.

It take good reasoning to get it right or come close.

The original post is 3 years old. Not many politicians would lay it on the line like that.

Now for my next post.

Wow RRH is really sick in the head.

First off he would never ask the '5 Whys' in all situations.

I like how poofter sought aid and comfort with Chinese propaganda. You probably can count the countries RRH has been to on one hand.

Probaby had a vacation at a Jamaican resort and stayed by the pool drinking beer for 2 weeks. the hoser probably counts that as having seen Jammaica

RRH is so full of scat, he makes Mary Wilkie seem like a fountain of truth.

[Throws down pamphlets which he has been reading. Excitedly combs his flowing spread of whiskers
with his fingers; pounds the table with his fists; lets off brisk volleys of unsanctified language at brief
intervals, repentantly drooping his head, between volleys, and kissing the Louis XI crucifix hanging from
his neck, accompanying the kisses with mumbled apologies; presently rises, flushed and perspiring, and
walks the floor, gesticulating]
---- ----!! ---- ----!! If I had them by the throat! [Hastily kisses the crucifix, and mumbles] In these
twenty years I have spent millions to keep the press of the two hemispheres quiet, and still these leaks
keep on occurring. I have spent other millions on religion and art, and what do I get for it? Nothing. Not a compliment. These generosities are studiedly ignored, in print. In print I get nothing but slanders -- and
slanders again -- and still slanders, and slanders on top of slanders! Grant them true, what of it? They are
slanders all the same when uttered against a king.
Miscreants -- they are telling everything! Oh, everything: how I went pilgriming among the
Powers in tears, with my mouth full of Bible and my pelt oozing with piety at every pore, and implored
them to place the vast and rich populous Congo Free state in trust in my hands as their agent, so that I
might root out slavery and stop the slave raids, and lift up those twenty-five millions of gentle and
harmless blacks out of darkness into light, the light of our blessed Redeemer, the light that streams from
his holy Word, the light that makes glorious our noble civilization -- lift them up and dry their tears and
fill their bruised hearts with joy and gratitude -- lift them up and make them comprehend that they were
no longer outcasts and forsaken, but our very brothers in Christ; how America and thirteen great
European states wept in sympathy with me, and were persuaded; how their representatives met in
convention in Berlin and made me Head Foreman and Superintendent of the Congo State, and drafted
out my powers and limitations, carefully guarding the persons and liberties and properties of the natives
against hurt and harm; forbidding whisky traffic and gun traffic; providing courts of justice; making
commerce free and fetterless to the merchants and traders of all nations, and welcoming and safe-
guarding all missionaries of all creeds and denominations. They have told how I planned and prepared
my establishment and selected my horde
of officials -- "pals" and "pimps" of mine, "unspeakable Belgians" every one -- and hoisted my flag, and
"took in" a President of the United States, and got him to be the first to recognize it and salute it. Oh,
well, let them blackguard me if they like; it is a deep satisfaction to me to remember that I was a shade
too smart for that nation that thinks itself so smart. Yes, I certainly did bunco a Yankee -- as those people
phrase it. Pirate flag? Let them call it so -- perhaps it is. All the same, they were the first to salute it.

If RRH is going to quote Mark Twain, he should at least give proper attribution.

ARAMCO proves what a moron RRH is.
