Travel To Cuba Gets Easier Starting…

| Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaTravel

no title

For weeks, we've been hearing about how President Obama and Fidel Castro's brother President Raúl Castro made a deal that relaxed the laws about travel between America and Cuba.

Well, people can begin traveling there as soon as today! Friday the 16th!

According to Obama's new rules, if airlines begin regular service to the country, people may only need to check a box when buying tickets online, and off they go on vacation!

There are still stipulations though. Every trip must have a purpose, whether it's for educational, religious, cultural, journalistic, humanitarian or family purposes, among other permitted reasons. Also, as of now, people still need to travel in groups.

Travel isn't the only thing that got easier either. It's now easier to send money to Cuba, as well as spend it. People can use credit cards there and even bring back up to $100 in Cuban cigars.

United Airlines and American Airlines are among the companies trying to secure regular service to and from Cuba. While people need to still have a legitimate reason for being in the country, booking air travel will be much more relaxed.

However, some people are worried that Cuba's infrastructure can't hold up to what could be a huge influx of tourism.

We'll all just have to wait and see

Former Arkansas governor and Fox News talk show host, Mike "I hate Jay Z and Beyoncé with a passion" Huckabee turned some heads and caused spit-takes when he called Mr. Carter Bey's "pimp" in his book God, Guns, Grits and Gravy.

In the self-penned pages, he wonders how Sasha and Malia could be exposed to the music of Bey, and how President Obama and Michelle Obama could encourage their love of Yoncé.

Here's what he had to say in a recent interview:

On Monday night's Daily Show, the host pointed out that the U.S. was woefully absent from the Paris rally on Sunday, and that it didn't exactly show our solidarity for freedom of speech.

Jon said:

"How could the U.S. not be there when representatives of such beacons of freedom and lack of censorship as journalist-punishing Russia was there?"

Ouch! Tough, but fair. See the entire segment (below)!

The two remaining suspects in Wednesday's massacre at the Charlie Hebdo offices are dead.

Brothers Cherif and Said Kouachi were alleged to have carried out the deadly shooting that killed 12 people, including eight journalists, two police officers, a maintenance worker and a visitor.

The gunmen stormed the Paris offices of the satirical newspaper, shooting the senior staff and then continuing indiscriminately. They told witnesses they were from Al Qaeda and trained in Yemen. They executed police officer Ahmed Merabet before fleeing in a getaway car.

The Kouachi brothers were cornered in a print shop in Dammartin-en-Goële Friday morning, where they took a hostage before being shot by police forces. The hostage was rescued.

Simultaneously in Paris, a gunman reported to be connected to the Charlie Hebdo shooters opened fire on

at least 12 dead paris shooting charlie hebdo

This is absolutely horrible and completely heartbreaking.

Today in Paris, France there was a devastating shooting at the offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo that has left at least 12 dead.

The attack, now being labeled a 'terrorist operation' by President François Hollande, is France's deadliest terror attack in twenty years.

Among those dead are two French policeman and famed French cartoonists, known by their pen names: Cabu, Tignous, Wolinski, and Charb (who is also the magazine's publisher).

The Associated Press is reporting that there were THREE gunmen who carried out the attack after a press conference with French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve, not two as previously thought, and that they're all still on the loose. They also were supposedly shouting "Allahu akbar" while shooting.

Reporters at the scene of the crime quotes a policeman who said:
