Castro Makes Fools of Obama & Co.

And the media stays faithfully silent.

“Cuba and the United States  signed an agreement to cooperate in the fight against terrorism, drug trafficking, money laundering and other international criminal activities on the eve of President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration.” (Reuters, Jan. 2017)

“Cuban security officials toured Key West drug-war center—A delegation of Cuban government national security officials recently toured the Pentagon’s counter-drug center in Key West (in May, 2016)— a first, signaling a nascent effort in U.S.-Cuban security cooperation..They got a briefing on the work that has been described as Southcom’s command center in the war on drugs.”

“Cuba has kept drug trafficking, in check— the U.S. State Department’s (under Obama) annual narcotics control report found that (Cuba) is not a major consumer, producer or transit point for illegal narcotics.” (Miami Herald, March 2017.)

In brief, a Republican’s word under oath is an obvious subterfuge. But the word of KGB-mentored apparatchiks who’ve run a Russian satrapy for over half a century is good as gold. So seem to reason the Obama team and their Fake News Media auxiliaries. And to demonstrate their fidelity to the Russian satrap’s word, the Obama team put our national security where Castro’s mouth is, by giving his top defense and secret police apparatchiks a guided tour of some of our most vital defense facilities!

In brief, unlike in the case with Republicans, no villainy linked to “Russian collusion” is attributed by Democrats to the apparatchiks who have run a terror-sponsoring Russian satrapy on our doorstep for upwards of 60 years!….Now back to some late-breaking news:

“Panamanian authorities on Saturday (May, 18, 2019) intercepted 46 suitcases containing an estimated $90 million in illegal drugs on a cargo ship that arrived from a Cuban port and was en route to Istanbul, Turkey. The suitcases contained 1,517 packages of drugs hidden in a container declared as containing charcoal.”

Needless to add: no mainstream U.S. media portal (not even FOX!) has reported on this blockbuster embarrassment to the Obama team.

But this wasn’t the first egg on the faces of the Obama team, especially the architects of the partnership with Castro such as Pajama Boy Ben Rhodes and CIA chief John Brennan, who secretly met with Raul Castro’s son Alejandro. Instead:

“Panamanian authorities have intercepted over 401 kilos of cocaine in a shipment from Cuba en route to Belgium. The cocaine was found in a (Cuban) container camouflaged by (Cuban) molasses tanks.” (April, 14, 2017.)

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) attributes half the world’s cocaine supply to the Colombian Terror group FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia), who are intimately linked with the people who nowadays run next door Venezuela—who are Cuban-guarded and manipulated puppets.

“I don’t think I’d even call (Venezuela) a regime, “ said Navy Adm. Craig Faller, head of U.S. Southern Command just this week, “ it’s a mafia. It’s an illicit business that he’s (Maduro) running with his 2,000 corrupt generals. It’s ruining the country…Illicit narco trafficking through Venezuela is up some 40 percent.”

So the dots shouldn’t be overly difficult to connect.

In fact, The FARC itself, once gave credit where credit is due, attributing their rollicking success to the Castro regime:

“Thanks to Castro” boasted late FARC commander Tiro-Fijo in an interview, “we are now a powerful army, not a hit and run band.”

Given the hefty piece of the action which the Castro-Family-Crime-Syndicate (mislabeled “Cuba” by the media) undoubtedly gets from FARC it’s only proper that FARC kingpins have the run of the Castro Family Fiefdom. In fact, some of these distinguished gentlemen were seated just a few rows from Obama himself when he attended that baseball game in Havana during his famous visit in March 2016.

Not that the Cuban regime’s drug-running started recently. Not by a long-shot:

“The case we have against Raul Castro right now (for drug-trafficking) is much stronger than the one we had against Manuel Noriega in 1988.” (U.S. prosecutors in Florida to the Miami Herald, July 1996.)

“Federal prosecutors in Miami were prepared to indict Raul Castro as the head of a major cocaine smuggling conspiracy in 1993, but the Clinton Administration Justice Department overruled them, current and former Justice Department officials tell ABC News…”It was a major investigation involving numerous witnesses that was killed at the highest levels in Washington,” said a former Justice Department official with direct knowledge of the case.”

I would be remiss in my reportorial responsibilities if I didn’t mention that the Castro regime emphatically and categorically denies any involvement with the drugs found aboard the ship that left its port last week, insisting the drugs were snuck onto the containers in Panama itself and that the regime has always enforced a “zero–tolerance” policy towards drug consumption and smuggling.

I would be equally remiss in my reportorial responsibilities by not pointing out other historic and emphatic denials by the Castro regime. To maximize the effect on American pundits and policymakers one of the most historic was made to — among other influential American opinion-shapers of the time — Ed Sullivan.

Try not to snort while viewing it, especially while picturing the guffaws from the denier’s KGB handlers of the time. After all, along with the mainstream media of the time, both the U.S. State Department and John Brennan’s predecessors at the CIA believed every word of the denial.

End Of The Castro Era, Yet Communism Prevails Under New Leader

Founders Code

In February of 2013, the 600 members of the National Assembly of People’s Power and the 1600 provincial government representatives voted for Miguel Diaz Canal to be vice president. As of April 2018, Miguel Diaz Canal will reign supreme over Cuba as Raul Castro steps down.

While the Cuban military runs most of the operations in Cuba including all tourism, it is predicted under Miguel Diaz Canal, the junta will expand in Cuba. Cuba remains on the U.S. State Department Tier 2 Watchlist because of human trafficking.

For a historic slide show on Cuba, go here.

Cuba remains in an economic crisis and has been patching this crisis with oil agreements with Venezuela, attempting to increase agriculture production and applying some reforms. Meanwhile Cuba has asked Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom for debt forgiveness which in total is estimated in the $11 billion range. Russia wrote off $32 billion in Soviet era debt of Cuba in 2014.

As a continued threat to the United States, Russia re-opened a signals intelligence facility at Lourdes and two Russian oil companies, Gazprom and Zarubezhneft, have continued offshore oil drilling exploration operations. In 2014, President Xi of China visited Cuba to sign 29 trade agreements along with debt and  credit cooperation concessions.

In 2013, a weapons shipment on board a North Korea ship that left Cuba bound for the return to North Korea was discovered raising additional concerns for sanctions violations of both countries. The ship’s cargo was discovered in Panama due to suspicions of carrying illicit narcotics.

In 2009, the Obama administration began a significant shift in policy toward Cuba launching a new beginning which led to the reopening of the U.S. embassy in Havana. Yet nothing in Cuba changed with regard to human rights violations but some dissident prisoners were released and there were some Cuba spies released from the United States back to Cuba. U.S. citizen Alan Gross was also released from prison by Cuba and returned to the United States. In at least four rounds of talks with Cuba to reestablish diplomatic relations with the United States, Barack Obama sent a resolution to Congress to removed Cuba from the designation of a State Sponsor of International Terrorism. There were no objections by Congress and the rescission of this designation was removed.

Further, under Barack Obama many other initiatives were launched including law enforcement cooperation, smuggling prevention, technical exchanges, environmental, banking, maritime issues, counter-narcotics, trade, travel and cyber-crime. Continued health cooperation, direct mail services and oil spill preparedness were all part of the Obama new era policies.

The Trump administration has made statements indicating a reversal to some of the policy changes made during the Obama administration. This also includes operations at Guantanamo Bay.Meanwhile, Cuba still protects fugitives from justice including Assata Shakur also known as Joanne Chesimard that killed a New Jersey State police officer when she was a member of the Black Liberation Army. Another fugitive is William Guillermo Morales, a member of FALN that a domestic terror group convicted in New York for bomb production and weapons charges in cases going back to 1978.

There are continued property claims totaling 5911 where private property and that of U.S. corporations were confiscated by the Cuban government. The value of these claims is in the $10.9 billion and no resolution is in sight.

So, as Raul Castro passe power to a younger groomed and mentored communist, there is no reason to consider that relations and conditions will improve or move closer to a democratic process in Cuba. Not to be overlooked, the matter of a still unclear health attack of U.S. and Canadian diplomats assigned to the embassy in Havana has not been resolved. Both the United States and Canada have removed personnel as a result of debilitating health issues where Cuba has not protected or mitigated these acoustic attacks in and around the homes of diplomatic housing quarters.

Miguel Diaz Canal will continue to carry on the Castro regime and communist party platform. In fact, it is said that Miguel Diaz Canal will in fact be much more of a hardliner than that of the previous Castro regime.

In a videotaped private meeting with Communist Party members, Cuban Vice President Miguel Díaz-Canel — often portrayed as a moderate politician with a quiet disposition — took on an all too familiar hardline tone that offered a rare glimpse into his ideology.

In the video, which has quickly spread across social media platforms, Díaz-Canel lashed out against Cuban dissidents, independent media and embassies of several European countries, accusing them all of supporting subversive projects.

For the United States, he had this message: Cuba will not make any concessions.

“The U.S. government… invaded Cuba, put the blockade [embargo] in place, imposed restrictive measures. Cuba did not do any of that, so in return for nothing they have to solve those asymmetries if they want relations and if they want normalization of the relations,” Díaz-Canel said in the February meeting captured on video and published by Cuban dissident Antonio Rodiles on YouTube this week.

 

Cuba: Man with US FLAG sprints in front of May Day march in Havana

A man carrying a flag of the United States broke through the security cordon and ran in front of the International Workers’ Day (May Day) march in Havana, Monday, before being tackled to the floor and removed from the scene by security.

The march then got underway, with Cuban President Raul Castro leading tens of thousands of Cubans as they took to the streets of Havana.

The parade took place at Havana’s Revolution Square with citizens displaying banners depicting the Cuban head of state and their former leader, Fidel Castro.

Planet Earth finally rids itself of evil mass-murderer Fidel Castro

Fidel Castro has finally met his long overdue death.  Good riddance. If you think that sounds harsh, you’re probably not among those who were victimized by his barbaric ascent and brutal 50-year dictatorship.

Castro and his crew were (and still are) murderers – a gang of cold-blooded killers who promised liberation and delivered death, torture, and servitude.  They line their pockets and live like kings while those beneath them toil away their lives for a pittance.  Step out of line, and you vanish.

There is nothing to revere here.

Those who praise Castro’s lifelong ability to thumb his nose at the United States turn a blind eye to decades of hubris, violence, mass graves, and vicious cruelty.

Normally, when world leaders pass on – even those with whom I have vehement disagreement – I go the “don’t speak ill of the dead” route. Fidel Castro’s death is a different story.

It’s joyous news for a great many people, as evidenced by the celebrations erupting this morning in Miami.

Obama invites Cuban spies to “‘tour’ American national security facilities”

It makes absolutely zero sense to allow spies from a State Sponsor of Terrorism to tour one of our military installations.

Communist Cuba is run by the military and the Cuban Border Guards are controlled by The Interior Ministry. They also operate small coastal artillery garrisons in conjunction with the Cuban Army and Navy as well as joint exercises.

The Cuban Interior Ministry directs the Intelligence Directorate, the political police, and an intelligence service modeled after the Soviet-era KGB intelligence service, Free Beacon reports.

They have very close ties to Russia and Iran.

Why would any US president invite them over “seeking closer ties” by bringing them to some our secure Port facilities?

My belief is because birds of a feather flock together.

Castro’s American Victims

Family Security Matters

DANIEL GREENFIELD

 

In 1972, Ishmael Muslim Ali LaBeet and four other killers walked into the Fountain Valley golf club in the Virgin Islands. They rounded up four Florida tourists and four employees, forced them to kneel on the ground, and opened fire.

That was how the Fountain Valley Massacre began.

Afterward LaBeet and his fellow murderers were swarmed by civil rights attorneys eager to claim that their clients had been tortured into confessing. But the claims of torture were undermined by LaBeet.

At his trial, Ishmael LaBeet yelled, “I killed them all. I don’t give a f__. I killed them all.”

The killers were found guilty and sentenced. But LaBeet hijacked an airplane to Cuba. Today he is still there, north of Guantanamo, calling himself a Communist.

U.S. Removed Cuba from Terrorist List After Hezbollah Opened Base on Island

Judicial Watch

A few years before the Obama administration removed Cuba from the U.S. list of nations that sponsor terrorism Hezbollah established an operational base on the communist island, according to intelligence received by Hillary Clinton when she was Secretary of State.

The information comes straight from electronic mail released by the State Department over the weekend as part of ongoing litigation from several groups, including Judicial Watch, and media outlets surrounding Clinton’s use of a private server to send and receive classified information as Secretary of State. This alarming information has been ignored by the mainstream media, which served as the president’s most vocal cheerleader when he established diplomatic ties with Cuba last summer. After appearing for decades on the U.S. government’s list of nations that sponsor terrorism, the Obama administration officially removed it to lay the groundwork for a full renewal of diplomatic ties.

Nevertheless, the administration knew that the radical Lebanon-based Islamic group Hezbollah had opened a base in Cuba, just 90 miles from the U.S, a few years earlier. In a cable dated September 9, 2011 Clinton is informed that “extremely sensitive sources reported in confidence that the Israeli Intelligence and Security Service (Mossad) has informed the leadership of the Israeli Government that Hezbollah is establishing an operational base in Cuba, designed to support terrorist attacks throughout Latin America.” The cable goes on to say that “the Hezbollah office in Cuba is being established under direct orders from the current General Secretary Hasan Nasrallah, who replaced Musawi in 1992. According to the information available to this source, in preparation for establishment of the base, Nasrallah, working from inside of Lebanon, carried out secret negotiations with representatives of the Cuban Government, particularly the Cuban Intelligence Service (General Intelligence Directorate — DGI), agreeing to , maintain a very low profile inside of Cuba. Nasrallah also promised to take measures to avoid any trail of evidence that could lead back to Cuba in the event of a Hezbollah attack in Latin America.”

Obama’s report to Congress indicating his intent to rescind Cuba’s State Sponsor of Terrorism designation included a certification that Cuba had not provided any support for international terrorism during the previous six-months. It also claimed that Cuba had provided assurances that it will not support acts of international terrorism in the future. This was May, 2015 when the State Department announced the island nation was officially off the terrorist list because it “meets the statutory criteria for rescission.” In the announcement the agency also wrote this: “While the United States has significant concerns and disagreements with a wide range of Cuba’s policies and actions, these fall outside the criteria relevant to the rescission of a State Sponsor of Terrorism designation.” The new Clinton email creates a number of questions relating to the agency’s abrupt move to clear Cuba as a sponsor of terrorism.

Hezbollah’s involvement in Latin America is nothing new and in fact Judicial Watch has been reporting it for years. In 2013 JW published a story about Hezbollah infiltrating the southwest U.S. border by joining forces with Mexican drug cartels that have long operated in the region. The recently released Clinton email, states that a “particularly sensitive source” confirmed that in the 1980s Hezbollah carried out similar contingency casing operations against U.S., British, and Israeli facilities and businesses in Latin America, Europe and North Africa. In 1992 Islamic Jihad, acting on behalf of Hezbollah, bombed the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires, Argentina in retaliation for the death of Hezbollah General Secretary Abbas al-Musawi, the email says.
