The Cuban President calls on the country’s “revolutionary” citizens to counter the demonstrators
Thousands of Cubans took to the streets in Havana to strike against the deteriorating conditions in the country under the communist regime – the largest protest in decades – and urged the country’s president to urge “revolutionary” citizens to oppose the demonstrators.
President Miguel Diaz-Canel, who is also the leader of the Communist Party, reached out to the country, according to the Washington Post, accusing the US of fueling the anger.
“We are ready for anything,” he said. “We will fight in the streets.”
Cuba is experiencing its worst economic crisis in decades, along with a resurgence of coronavirus cases as it suffers the aftermath of US sanctions imposed by the Trump administration.
White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said on Twitter that “the US supports freedom of expression and assembly across Cuba and strongly condemns any violence or attacks on peaceful protesters who exercise their universal rights.”
Many of the demonstrators in the town of San Antonio de los Banos were young and verbally abused Diaz-Canel. They shouted that they were “not afraid”. CLICK HERE FOR MORE ABOUT OUR TOP STORY.

Trump easily wins the straw poll of the CPAC 2024 GOP presidential nomination
Former President Donald Trump easily won the election for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) this weekend in Texas.
Trump, who has repeatedly flirted with another presidential election in 2024 to try to return to the White House, received 70% of the votes cast in the anonymous straw poll, the CPAC announced on Sunday afternoon.
That’s a boost from the 55% support it won in late February in the hypothetical Republican primary match straw poll at CPAC Orlando.
“I would like to personally thank each and every one of you for your incredible support,” said Trump as he keyed the event in Dallas minutes later.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis took second place by far with 21%. None of the 19 potential candidates for the 2024 Republican White House peaked at 1%. CLICK HERE FOR MORE.

Billionaires come to Sun Valley on private jets to talk about climate change
A cabal of some of the top media, finance, and technology figures arrived on private jets at Idaho’s Sun Valley resort this week to tackle climate change, among other things.
On Tuesday, the day the conference began, private jet traffic became so heavy that the Federal Aviation Administration temporarily banned planes from taking off on the west coast.
The FAA told Fox News that it was holding aircraft briefly on the ground at their departure airports to avoid congesting the airspace around Sun Valley.
The manager of Friedman Memorial Airport in the neighboring town of Hailey, Idaho, told NPR ahead of the conference that he expected more than 90 private planes.
A session where people who had flown to the event on their own CO2-emitting Gulfstream jets preached about the dangers of climate change angered some business leaders who contacted Fox Business earlier this week.
“Talking about climate change in his private jet?” remarked a CEO laughing and referring to Gates. CLICK HERE FOR MORE.

SOME FINAL WORDS
Representative Nancy Mace teamed up with Steve Hilton on “The Next Revolution” on Sunday evening to discuss the fight against the left’s climate agenda.
“Democrats do a very good job of drawing the emotional hearts of ordinary Americans,” Mace said. “They use extremism and scare tactics. It was President Trump in his final months of his presidency, he banned drilling off the coast of South Carolina and Georgia and Florida because the states wanted and demanded it.”
