    Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody isn’t holding back, slamming the U.S. Treasury Department for what she sees as a misguided embrace of Cuba’s communist agenda. And who can blame her? With Chinese spies running amok in Cuba and the Biden administration putting out the red carpet for the Cuban regime at Miami International Airport, it’s like watching a bad spy thriller unfold in real life. This comes as a former U.S. diplomat in Miami got busted for moonlighting as a secret agent for the Cuban government.

    Moody’s not alone in her outrage. Cuban-American lawmakers are screaming from the rooftops about the absurdity of cozying up to a regime known for its repressive tactics. I mean, come on, inviting Cuban officials to tour TSA facilities? What’s next, a guided tour of the Pentagon for North Korean diplomats?

    And don’t even get Moody started on the Treasury Department’s latest regulatory circus act, the Cuban Assets Control Regulations (CACR) amendments. Apparently, now even Cuban nationals who claim to be “independent private sector entrepreneurs” can waltz into U.S. banks like they own the place, regardless of their residency status in the U.S. The new regulation enables them to open and maintain accounts in the U.S., just like any other citizen. Who needs background checks when you’ve got communism on your side?

    Moody’s not buying it, and neither should we. These amendments are like handing a blank check to the Cuban regime, allowing them to exploit our banking system while the Cuban people continue to suffer. Moody warns that this loophole could enable businesses affiliated with regime members to exploit U.S. banking channels, potentially facilitating money laundering and further enriching the communist regime.

    And let’s not forget the cherry on top. Despite Cuba’s designation as a State Sponsor of Terrorism, the administration removed it from the list of uncooperative countries in counterterrorism efforts because nothing says “good neighbor” like cozying up to the regime. Way to go, Biden administration. You’ve really outdone yourselves this time.

    So,  while the Biden administration plays footsie with the Castro brothers, Moody and her fellow Florida lawmakers are left shaking their heads in disbelief. The situation is so ludicrous that even Florida lawmakers, usually at each other’s throats, have found rare bipartisan agreement in their outrage over the invitation for Cuban officials to tour U.S. facilities, including the TSA.

    It’s enough to make you wonder if common sense took an extended vacation from Washington, D.C. But hey, who needs common sense when you’ve got diplomacy, right?
