Oliver Stone’s Most Vicious Insult!
Townhall.com ^ | March 15, 2014 | Humberto Fontova

Posted on 03/15/2014 7:46:11 AM PDT by Kaslin

Oliver Stone's recent visit to Venezuela to premiere his Castro/Chavez infomercial "My Friend Hugo" has brought him under fire in social media. Exasperated beyond endurance by the onslaught Stone recently lashed back with (apparently) the most hateful insult his inflamed mind could conjure. You people are:

"Similar to the right-wing Florida Cuban exiles who’ve helped keep the US in a dungeon of ignorance!" he raved.

For leftists its “right-wing lunatics spreading a dungeon if ignorance!” For normal folks it’s: “people who have actually experienced communism trying to circumvent communist propaganda as disseminated by a media-Hollywood axis—and one not always completely honest about their motives.”

Not that it always requires blackmail to get Hollywood folks of mainstream talking heads to parrot Castroite propaganda, but here’s a few clues to some of it:

"My job was to bug their hotel rooms," disclosed high-ranking Cuban intelligence defector Delfin Fernandez, "with both cameras and listening devices.

“When word came down that models Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss were coming to Cuba the order was a routine one: 24-hour-a-day vigilance. Then we got a priority alert, recalls Fernandez, "because there was a rumor that they would be sharing a room with Leonardo DiCaprio. The rumor set off a flurry of activity and we set up the most sophisticated devices we had."

"Delfin Fernandez has not only met some of the most famous men in the world," says a story in the London Daily Mirror about the Cuban intelligence defector, "he's also spied on them and been witness to some of their most innermost secrets."

"Fidel Castro is a source of inspiration for me!" gushed Campbell while concluding her “press conference.”It is a great pleasure to be in Cuba. I've really enjoyed myself, and I plan to come back!"

"Fidel Castro is a genius!" said Jack Nicholson after a visit with El Lider Maximo that same year. "We spoke about everything," the actor rhapsodized. "Castro is a humanist. Cuba is simply a paradise!"

"The American actor Jack Nicholson was another celebrity who was bugged and taped thoroughly during his stay in Havana’s Hotel Meliá Cohiba," revealed Fernandez, the man in charge of the bugging. “We bugged his room thoroughly. Most people have no idea they are being watched while they are in Cuba. But their personal activities are filmed under orders from Castro himself."

Interestingly (and tragically) The ECPAT Network – (End Child Prostitution in Asian Tourism) in a study titled Child Prostitution and Sex Tourism in Cuba," reports that: "In Cuba, the link between tourism and prostitution is perhaps more direct than in any other country that hosts sex tourists." Such is the desperation of the brutalized and impoverished residents of a nation that prior to the glorious Castro/Che revolution enjoyed a higher per capita income than Japan and half the nations of Europe and who welcomed more immigrants (primarily from Europe) per-capita than the U.S. Prior to the glorious Communist liberation people were as desperate to enter Cuba as they are now to escape.

"Famous Americans are the priority objectives of Castro's intelligence," reports Fernandez. “When the celebrity visitors arrived at the Hotels Nacional, Meliá Habana and Meliá Cohiba, we already had their rooms completely bugged with sophisticated taping equipment. But not just the rooms, we'd also follow the visitors around, sometimes we covered them 24 hours a day. They had no idea we were tailing them."

"Socialism works. I think Cuba might prove that" (Chevy Chase). "Castro is very selfless and moral, one of the world's wisest men" (Oliver Stone).

"If you believe in freedom, if you believe in justice, if you believe in democracy, you have no choice but to support Fidel Castro!" (Harry Belafonte).

"It was an experience of a lifetime to sit only a few feet away from him (Castro)" Kevin Costner.

"The eight most important hours of my life," (Stephen Spielberg describing his dinner with Castro, as reported in the Wall Street Journal.)

Famous Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar was a special target for this bugging but nothing of value came of it for Castro. "Everybody already knows I'm a maricon!" Almodovar laughed at Castro's blackmailers. "So go right ahead! Knock yourselves out!"

"Fidel Castro is a special connoisseur of these tapings and videos," says Fernandez, "especially of the really famous." And not even his closest "friends" are safe from this bugging. The best example is his longtime Castro "friend" Nobel Prize novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez. In what appeared as a touching act of generosity and friendship, Castro gave his friend "Gabo" his very own (stolen) mansion in Havana.

"We had remodeled it right before," recalls Fernandez, "and we installed more cables for bugging devices than for the normal electrical appliances. We taped everything. Fidel doesn't trust anyone."

Turns out, however, that at least one visiting dignitary foiled Castro's intelligence. On his visit to Cuba in 1998, Pope John Paul's assistants discovered and removed several bugging devices from his Holiness' hotel room. Perhaps Castro had a grudge against the Papacy?

Most don't recall, but on January 3rd, 1962, Pope John XXIII ex-communicated Fidel Castro from the Catholic Church.

“His personal magnetism is powerful!” panted Barbara Walters about Fidel Castro during her 2002 interview with the hemisphere’s top torturer of women. “His presence is still commanding!"

Juan Reynaldo Sanchez, a Lieut. Colonel in Cuba’s Armed Forces who spent 17 years as Fidel Castro’s bodyguard/valet had just been promoted to the position when Barbara Walters visited Cuba for her first interview with the Stalinist dictator in May 1977. Sanchez defected to the U.S. in 2008 and explained to this writer how he was part of the Castroite entourage that accompanied Ms Walters and Fidel to the latter’s island chateau, where they spent the week-end.

On Morning Joe yesterday Chris Matthews suggested that the Democrats attack Right Wing Crazies in the coming elections, which elicited an immediate and scornful rebuke from Scarborough, which came as a surprise. “If you do that you lose {named the states} and the Senate. Matthews looked shell shocked.

Oh, yeah.
Why don’t these Hollywood idiots ask the Cuban people living in Florida who fled Cuba how, “Wonderful,” communism is.

I find it amusing how many of these "Men of the People" come from wealth and then somehow manage to continue to live in even more wealth after they take control "for the good of the people" of course.

You would think that maybe this was just another blatant money/power grab by the elites if you were cynical like me.

Or if you had two brain cells to rub together.

Stone directed (or produced) one of the more ‘iconic’ films of recent times in Scarface, one can see the Cubans that migrated certainly are portrayed in a very negative way. I’m not even sure if the Mariel boatlift even saw a real surge in crime in Florida. I’d have to research it.

But I do know a Cuban man who came through cerca 1960. I would tend to believe the Castro regime are tyrants, don’t know why Stone doesn’t take the word of those who suffered under Castro so in this way, Stone’s views are just screwed up.

Stone should read and make a movie on Armando Valladares’ book “Against all hope”, one of the most inspirational books I have ever read. He spent years in the prisons down there.

When The FBI Tracked Terror-Suspects—Literally!
Humberto Fontova | May 10, 2013

http://townhall.com/columnists/humbertofontova/2013/05/10/when-the-fbi-tracked-terrorsuspectsliterally-n1592705

Now that the media and political dust has settled regarding the Boston bombing investigation, a failure by our intelligence agencies to properly “track” the Tsarnaev brothers seems like an inescapable factor. So a reminder of how the FBI once handled these matters might be good for the soul:
“I’ve got Suero and Garcia in sight,” reported Special Agent John Malone to Assistant FBI director Alan Belmont. “Can arrest them easily.”
“Anything on Santiesteban?” asked Belmont, who sat just down the hall from J. Edgar Hoover.

“We have the area around the U.N. staked out but haven’t spotted him yet,” answered Malone who ran the FBI’s New York field office.

“Then hold off,” ordered a tense Belmont.

The date was November 17, 1962 and the FBI wanted a clean sweep of the three top plotters, all Cuban agents. The night before—relying on their bedrock tool of human intelligence: moles, snitches—they’d pieced together the plot puzzle. The resulting picture must have staggered the FBI men. These men had served at their posts during WWII and the height of the Cold War and seen plenty. But this?!

The Castro brothers’ and Che Guevara’s agents had targeted Macy’s, Gimbels, Bloomingdales, and Manhattan’s Grand Central Station with a dozen incendiary devices and 500 kilos of TNT. The Holocaust was set for detonation the following week, on the day after Thanksgiving.

Some perspective: for their March 2004 Madrid subway blasts, all 10 of them, that killed and maimed almost 2,000 people, al-Qaeda used a grand total of 100 kilos of TNT. Castro and Che’s agents planned to set off five times that explosive power in the three biggest department stores on earth, all packed to suffocation and pulsing with holiday cheer on the year’s biggest shopping day. Macy’s gets 50,000 shoppers that one day. Thousands of New Yorkers, including women and children—actually, given the date and targets, probably mostly women and children—were to be incinerated and entombed.

The FBI agents and officers were haggard and red-eyed –but seriously wired. Like hawks on a perch they’d been watching the plot unfold, sweating bullets the whole time. It was nearing time to swoop down on Fidel Castro and Che Guevara’s agents, busy with a terror plot that would have made Bin Laden drool decades later.

Alan Belmont was second to J. Edgar Hoover at the time. Raymond Wannall headed the Bureau’s Intelligence Division. That nerve-jangling dawn both were in Belmont’s office just down the hall from Hoover’s communicating with John Malone and his New York field agents. These were busily “tracking” the plotters in Manhattan, keeping a touch-and-go, but more or less constant, surveillance on the ringleaders of the Castroite terror plot.

don’t know why Stone doesn’t take the word of those who suffered under Castro so in this way,

probably has to do with little girls or boys that the Cubans know about.

"Stone’s views are just screwed up.

What this article tells me is Castro videos, photos, and audio records every minute of a visitor's time in Cuba hoping to catch them in a compromising and blackmailable situation. Castro caught Oliver Stone in a perverted act and now "owns" him.

What is best in life?

Conan: To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.


Evidently this is why Stone has an crush for brutal. left wing dictators, he personally embodies this line

Just when you think Jack might have a conservative side with his pro-life comments, the idiot says this.

Humberto: Good morning. Those “Hollywood” celebrities you mentioned in your story represent some of the mental/educational problems we have in the US.

Some are drug-addled idiots like Oliver Stoned. If there was anyone damaged by Vietnam, it was he.

Barbara Walters - made many of her advancements in bed as well as at the typewriter

Spielberg - a blind liberal who should have learned about totalitarianism when he made “Schindler’s List”, but didn’t.

Harry Belafonte - the “red in the closet”. Given his early life in Harlem, living and meeting with members of the “Harlem Rennaissance” intellectuals (DuBois, Robeson, Hughes, etc)., Belafonte was exposed to massive amounts of communist propaganda which he swallowed hook, line and sinker, but which he kept relatively hidden for years.

As I see it, he is the direct protege’ of Soviet asset and Communist Party USA covert member Paul Robeson (his son, Paul Jr. was also a Party member), W.E.B. DuBois (who came under CPUSA influence through his wife and later joined the same Party he thoroughly denounced in the 1930’s for seeking to use “blacks as cannon fodder for the revolution),(paraphrased), and the CPUSA’s top entertainment industry fronters, the husband & wife team of Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee.

The closest Ossie Davis came to announcing that he was a communist came in the Fall, 1967 issue of the CPUSA publication “New World Review”, in their “50 Years of the USSR, Nov. 7, 1917 - Mov. 7, 1967” issue.

In it Davis wrote an article entitled “A Black Man’s Salute”, in which he praised the Soviet Union and said that, concerning the Russian Revolution of 1917, “it was only natural that black men should associate their own hopes and their own expectations with the promises of socialism”.

Note: Most of the American blacks who went to the Soviet Union in the early 1920’s and 30’s either stayed there, or returned largely disillusioned. Those who stayed became Stalin’s “house Negros”, i.e. moved from the tragic stage of American “Jim Crowism” to that of “Soviet plantation showpieces and propaganda objects” (a few eventually broke away from communism and came back to tell the truth of what they had been through).

It is footnote worthy to note that the opening introduction to this special edition of NWR was written by Jessica Smith, an identified Soviet spy and wife to two identified Soviet spies. The title of her introductory piece, “To the USS With Love on Its Fiftieth Birthday”, which was interesting because it came approximately 10 years after Khruschev’s famous denounciation of the genocidal crimes of Stalin, who helped kill an estimated 20-40 million Russians and captive nations people.

I guess that she, Davis, Columbia’s infamous CP professor Corliss Lamont, and the other contributors to this NWR issue didn’t hear or read K’s speech. Apparently they were too busy doing communism’s propaganda work to pay attention to the very totalitarian sytem they would be praising throughout their traitorous lives.

Another Robeson/Davis protege’ is apparently Danny Glover, who was also in this Harlem grouping.

Hopefully actor Sidney Poitier was not infected by the communism of some of the Harlem intellectuals and hasn’t swallowed the “Castro is a great guy” propaganda put out by Davis, Belafonte and Glover.

While Marquez called himself a “maricon”, I think the best word to describe these American liberal leftists/communist admirers is “pendajos”.

Keep reminding the American people what communism is “really” like, not what the brainwashed and drug-addled American Left thinks it is.

Castro uses honey traps (hookers/drugs), surveillance and extortion to gain influence over notable figures.

Obama uses the NASA.

If we were shown Boehner’s NASA file (scotch and hooker) everything would become crystal clear.

The comments from well known Hollywood types confirm what has long been obvious in the biased imagery in their movies, that they have embraced the Marxist war on reality. Only an ideological fanatic would rhapsodize is such a manner over a dedicated Communist leader.

It is important that Conservatives understand just how significant the contribution of the Hollywood Left has been in bringing America to the present cusp of self-destruction. (For example, see The Persuasive Use Of Images.)

What is really sad, is that some of these people are truly talented--truly able to use their imaginations to create scenes & project plots that appear to be realistic, even as the mislead viewers away from what is actually worthwhile in the human experience. Of course the answer to their pernicious wares are all the facets of the human experience--of human interaction--that they carefully leave out of their projections. What they deliberately leave out, telegraphs their bias & intellectual dishonesty.

The article is about surveillance used for extortion by Cuba.

The purpose of NASA data collection on Americans is the same and it’s a power the executive branch wields almost exclusively.

You can not rule out extortion as a motivator of the GOP establishment, this is the new paradigm.

Perhaps you mean the NSA? That is the spy agency.

Isn’t Obama was a Democrat.
Isn’t the Senate controlled by Democrats?
Wasn’t the House also controlled by Democrats in 2090 & 2010 when the NSA was given the green light?

It’s said that the Clintons left the White House in possession of 1,500 FBI files.

All that paper is such a bother these days.

Trust that Obama will leave office with maybe a suitcase full of hard drives, maybe 150 to 200 terabytes of data. The NSA files on...say, the 150,000 most influential conservatives. This data could be extremely valuable in defeating future opposition candidates. Trust that Obama’s future consulting firm will do very well.

This is the new paradigm.
