    OBAMA, Our Marxist Wizard of Oz

    By Peter Ferrara

    The American Spectator 12/17/2011

    His mother was an unabashed hippie from 1960s central
    casting. His father was an openly avowed Communist from Kenya. While his father wasn’t around much, his devoutly progressive grandparents arranged for him to be mentored during his adolescent years by a dues paying member of the

    U.S. Communist Party, Frank Marshall Davis.
    When he went to college, he was attracted to the Marxist professors and student activists, according to his own published memoirs. When he graduated, he moved to Chicago and became an instructor for the left-wing extremist organization ACORN in the social manipulation methods of radical Marxist agitator Saul Alinsky.

    He attended for close to two decades the Trinity United Church of Christ, which practiced neo-Marxist Black Liberation Theology. That church was headed during those years by the openly socialist Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who declared that the 9/11 terrorist attack on America was “America’s chickens coming home to roost.” He also famously preached from his pulpit, “Not God bless America, God da..mn America....”

    He launched his political career in the living room of the home of Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, co-founders and former leaders of the openly Communist domestic terrorist organization, the Weather Underground. That organization conducted several bombings in America and engaged in other violence that resulted in several injuries and even deaths.

    All of this is documented in the public record. This is the man the Democrat party took off the streets of Chicago, then pursuing a career as a Marxist street agitator, and launched into the White House, favoring him over Hillary Clinton because she was too moderate for the party. They did that because he best reflects the heart and soul of today’s radical-left, Che Guevara Democratic Party. It is in this context that we should understand and analyze Obama’s Hugo Chavez speech given last week at Osawatomie High School in Kansas.

    Giuliani: Obama influenced by communists since youth/

    By Carl Campanile and Geoff Earle

    New York Post Feb 21/2015

    http://nypost.com/2015/02/21/giuliani-obama-influenced-by-communists-since-youth/

    Rudy Giuliani doubled down on his claims that President Obama doesn’t “love America” in an interview with The Post Friday — claiming the commander-in-chief has been influenced by communists since his youth. “From the time he was 9 years old, he was influenced by Frank Marshall Davis, who was a communist,” Giuliani said. The ex-mayor added that Obama’s grandfather introduced him to Davis, a writer and labor activist.

    Giuliani also said another bad influence on Obama was Saul Alinsky, a community organizer whom the ex-mayor called a “socialist.”

    The man once called “America’s mayor’’ also sharply criticized the president for having been a member of a church led by radical Chicago Rev. Jeremiah Wright. “He spent 17 years in the church of Jeremiah Wright, and this is the guy who said ‘God damn America, not God bless America,’ ’’ Giuliani said.

    “Obama never left that church.”

    Giuliani said Obama doesn’t measure up to past presidents.

    “He doesn’t talk about America the way John Kennedy and Ronald Reagan did, about America’s greatness and exceptionalism,” said Giuliani.

    “He was educated by people who were critics of the US. And he has not been able to overcome those influences.”

    BLACK FRIDAY GREETINGS FROM FIDEL AND CHE

    By Humberto Fontova

    11/28/2011

    http://townhall.com/columnists/humbertofontova/2011/11/28/black_friday_greetings_from_fidel_and_che/page/full

    Intrepid terrorists could get maximum bang for their buck on “Black Friday.” A few well-placed bombs and the carnage would easily shame 9/11’s.

    Macy’s, for instance, serves tens of thousands of shoppers that one day. If nothing else, the theme would make for a hair-raising Hollywood drama or disaster blockbuster.

    Credibility might be a problem, however. After all, even the most bloodthirsty and psychopathic of terrorists seek government or semi-military targets: The Pentagon, The U.S.S. Cole, Marine barracks in Lebanon, embassies in Kenya, Saudi Arabia, etc. Typecasting one who craved massive civilian carnage for the malicious sake of massive civilian carnage might edge the movie over into a James Bondor Austin Powers comedy genre.

    Yet the movie could be based on a terrorist living today who planned this very type of civilian carnage 49 years ago. On Nov. 17, 1962, J Edgar Hoover’s FBI cracked a terrorist plot by Castro-Cuban agents that targeted Macy’s, Gimbel’s, Bloomindales and Manhattan’s Grand Central Station with a dozen incendiary devices and 500 kilos of TNT. The holocaust was set to go off the following week, the day after Thanksgiving.

    A little perspective: the March 2004 Madrid subway blasts, all 10 of the explosions that killed and maimed almost 2000 people, 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 — and on the year’s biggest shopping day, for good measure.

    Thousands of New Yorkers— probably mostly women and children given the date— were to be incinerated and entombed. Castro and Che planned their Manhattan holocaust just weeks after Nikita Khrushchevfoiled their plans for an even bigger massacre during the Cuban Missile Crisis. “If the missiles had remained,” Che Guevara confided to The London Daily Worker the following month, “we would have used them against the very heart of the U.S., including New York City.”

    Cuba’s agents for this Manhattan Thanksgiving bomb plot were members of the Cuban mission to the United Nations, and were working in concert with members of the Fair Play For Cuba Committee, an outfit that became much better known a year later this very week.

    Had those detonators gone off the day after Thanksgiving in 1962, 9/11 might be remembered as the second deadliest terrorist attack on U.S. soil.

    Castro planned his Manhattan holocaust short weeks after Nikita Khrushchevfoiled his plans for an even bigger one. “Say hello to my little friends!” Castro dreamt of yelling at the hated Yankees in October 1962, right before the mushroom clouds. But for the prudence of the Butcher of Budapest, Castro might have pulled it off. “If the missiles had remained,” Fidel’s sidekick Che Guevara confided to the London Daily Worker in November 1962 regarding the Cuban missile crisis, “We would have fired them against the very heart of the U.S., including New York.”

    Castro’s Manhattan bomb plot was far from “irrational.” He’s no suicide bomber — not by a long shot. Some Cuba-watchers speculate that Castro wanted to blast Manhattan to heat things up again, to rekindle all those thrills he’d experienced the previous weeks during the missile crisis. Given the temper of the times, he knew his Soviet sugar daddies would be implicated too. Then the U.S. might retaliate. Then Castro might get what he’d dreamed about and tried to provoke a few weeks earlier: an intercontinental nuclear exchange.

    Millions dead in the United States. Millions dead in the Soviet Union. And almost certainly, millions dead in his own Cuba. But Castro himself would be nowhere near harms way. Soviet ambassador to Cuba during the missile crisis, Alexander Alexeyev, reports a fascinating — if unsurprising — datum about those days. While Castro was begging, threatening, even trying to trick Khrushchev into launching a pre-emptive nuclear strike against the U.S. — while he was ranting and yelling and waving his arms about grabbing his Czech machine gun and “fighting the Yankee invaders to the last man!” — while frantically involved in all this, a “fearful” (Alexeyev’s term) Castro was also making reservations with Alexeyev for a first-class seat in the Soviet Embassy’s bomb shelter. Thus he’d emerge into the smoldering rubble and millions of incinerated bodies and realize his lifelong dream: his name stamped in history as the gallant David against the Yankee Goliath.

    Castro’s agents for his Manhattan Thanksgiving bomb plot were members of the Cuban mission to the United Nations working in concert with members of the Fair Play For Cuba Committee, an outfit that became much better known a year later when member Lee Harvey Oswaldreally racked up some headlines.

    Incidentally, at the time of the Manhattan terror plot, the Fair Play For Cuba Committee also included among its members, CBS correspondent Robert Taber (an early version of Dan Rather, who conducted Castro’s first network television soft-soaping on Aug. 30, 1957), along with The Nation magazine co-owner Alan Sagner. In 1996 President Clinton appointed the Alan Sagner head of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

    Breaking: US Enemy Cuba Caught Stealing Ultra-Sophisticated US Missile Technology for Sale to Other US Enemies

    Humberto Fontova | Jan 08, 2016

    Actually that’s not the title of yesterday’s blockbuster report in the Wall Street Journal. Here’s the WSJ title: “Missing U.S. Missile Shows Up in Cuba.”

    “An inert U.S. Hellfire missile sent to Europe (Spain) for training purposes was wrongly shipped from there to Cuba in 2014,” continues the WSJ, “a loss of sensitive military technology that ranks among the worst-known incidents of its kind. The unintended delivery of the missile to Cuba has confounded investigators and experts who work in a regulatory system designed to prevent precisely such equipment from falling into the wrong hands… Investigators are unclear if the incident was an error or the result of espionage. For more than a year, amid a historic thawing of relations between the U.S. and Cuba, American authorities have tried to get the Cuban government to return the missile.”

    “Cuban officials are reportedly convulsed in guffaws very similar to their guffaws in response to the request by Obama officials for the return of some of the FBI’s most-wanted criminals who live like celebrities in Cuba. The hilarity displayed by Cuban officials in the face of sweating Obama administration officials reportedly also caused spittle to actually splatter the shaken U.S. officials when they meekly inquired about the return of the $7 billion Castro stole at Soviet gunpoint from U.S. citizens in 1960.

    “All of this hilarity and truculence by Cuban officials in the face of Obama’s officials comes despite the flood of U.S. dollars to Cuba resulting from Obama’s recent “rapprochement” with the Castro regime. This U.S. economic lifeline was estimated at over $5 billion last year— which amounts to more than what the Soviets pumped into Castro’s fiefdom annually at the height of their sponsorship.

    “Better still, Obama threw the Castro brothers this economic lifeline in the very nick of time—just as their subsidies from Venezuela threatened to dry up. None of these factors stopped Castro’s apparatchiks from openly laughing in the faces of Obama’s groveling officials—indeed they made the guffaws all the louder. ”

    Ok, Ok, the WSJ story obviously didn’t contain the second, third and fourth paragraphs above. But any semi-sane Cuba-watcher can easily visualize the incident.

    The formerly missing missile, known as a Hellfire is a laser-guided, air-to-surface missile often fired from Apache attack helicopters and Predator Drones and has become “ an important part of the U.S. government’s antiterrorism arsenal,” according to the WSJ. In other words, it’s a hot item to get their hands for everyone from ISIS to Iran and from Syria to the Taliban.

    Let’s play a fun game and see if you concur with my choice for article title. The game is called “Connecting Da Dots.” Here’s some of the dots:

    OBAMA EMBRACES CASTRO-COMMUNISM Dqban22 8/16/2015
    The Catholic Magazine “Ideal” couldn’t better describe the ceremony of raising the American flag at the U.S. embassy in Havana:

    “Another unpardonable treason…”

    “Absent at the ceremony were:”

    “Thousands murdered by Castro’s firing squads.”

    “Thousands of political prisoners.”

    “Thousands drowned at sea.”

    “Millions of Exiles.”

    “Millions of divided families.”

    “Millions of unborn babies.”

    “Three generations living in material And spiritual poverty.”

    One of the most used ad nauseam arguments to justify the unconditional surrender of president Obama to the Cuban Stalinist regime is that over 50 years U.S. commercial embargo against the Cuban communist regime did not work and that it damaged the Cuban people and not those in power without producing any political change in Cuba.

    The fact is that the embargo did not fail. What failed was the lack of solidarity of the rest of world with the enslaved Cuban people. There was not a worldwide blockade and repudiation of the Cuban Stalinist regime as it was enforced when the world decided to put an end to the apartheid regime in South Africa.

    In fact, the Soviet Union was not alone in the spoiling of Cuba. Spain, Canada and Mexico were also main partners and financiers of Castro’s terror network and the genocide of the Cuban people.

    Cuba has been under a brutal Stalinist regime frozen in time for over 56 years. The Castro brothers have killed and imprisoned more Cubans than during the worst period of the Stalin terror era in relation to its population.

    It is a fact that the Castro brothers have sent more than 20,000 Cubans to death at the “paredón” (firing squads) and that they are responsible for the death at sea of more than 40,000 men, women and children who fled the Cuban hell in fragile makeshift rafts preferring certain death at the Florida Straits rather than continue living in slavery. Castro is also responsible for the imprisonment and torture of over 500,000 Cubans (including children) during his 56 years of tyranny.

    According to the best world authority in Cuba’s History, English scholar Hugh Thomas, referring to the Cuban tragedy, (The Spectator, 7/12/1986) he affirmed that: “The comparison must be with the account of Nazi concentration camps. Although there are yet no gas chambers in Cuba, there have been experiments of a criminal biological type designed to see how far an individual can survive starvation, beating, solitary confinement, and many various kinds of ill treatment. Valladares’ account of working in a stone quarry is not dissimilar to, and no more humane than, the many accounts extant of ‘life’ in Manthausen. Nor should one forget that the brutalities in Nazi Germany lasted at most 12 years and the gross cruelties in the Auschwitz camp continue for four years.”

    During the last 56 years Cuba traded freely with the rest of world, including the U.S. since food and medicine were not included in the embargo, nor were the over billions of dollars sent to the Island prison by their family exiled in U.S. Cuba could buy anything from any other country, including American products. The problem for those who traded with Cuba is that they were not paid back for their delivered products and did not want to continue selling to Cuba on credit. One great success of the embargo is that American business and entrepreneurs were not defrauded again by the Castro regime because by law any of the trade allowed with Cuba must be paid for in advance.

    Cuba, a country that before the Communism was self sustained, with a solid economy and a currency that was accepted internationally on par to the dollar, a country that received immigrants while Cubans didn’t need to emigrate. After Castro’s communist regime, Cuba became a hell hole where even the youth born indoctrinated after the revolution preferred to die at sea in quest of freedom than to continue living “in opprobrium and afrenta sumidos” (in opprobrium and affront sunk) in words of the Cuban national anthem.

    Many of the over 130 countries that trade with Cuba are prosperous without depending of trading with U.S. Cuba also traded freely before Castro with over 100 countries (including the Soviet Union). The Cubans enjoyed the highest standard of living in Latin America, and also higher than many Western European countries in the 1950’s. Cuba also enjoyed a top international credit rate. Now Cuba’s credit rate is at the level of Somalia while its standard of living is not much better than Haiti’s.

    The misery and oppression in Cuba are not due to the U.S. embargo, but to the legacy of communism with its sequel of destruction of the economic infrastructure of the country and of the work ethics and the moral that had previously characterized the Cuban people, traits of their ethos proved in any country where the Cuban exiles landed in their quest for freedom.

    The billions of dollars received annually from the Soviet Union were not used for the development of Cuba or in rising the meager lives of the Cubans, but to sustain Castro’s terror network all around the world, especially in Latin America, including the imperialist wars in Africa at the service of the Soviet Union’s ambitions in that continent. Castro’s worldwide terror network culminated with the Tricontinental Conference, where terrorists coordinated their worldwide war plans in Havana in 1966 under the leadership of Fidel Castro.

    Obama Atones for America’s Sins in Cuba

    http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3412603/posts

    .... Palm Sunday 2016, Barack Hussein Obama, political redeemer of the secular left, arrived in communist Cuba aboard Air Force One. It is an island once rich in the faith, only to be annihilated by Fidel and Raul Castro and their war on religion.

    “Heaven… right here in front of me,” was how Thomas Merton, the atheist-communist who became a devout Catholic monk, once described pre-Castro’s Cuba. “Every morning… I could find my way quickly to any one of a dozen churches as old as the seventeenth century. Almost as soon as I went in the door I could receive Communion, if I wished… and every fifteen or twenty minutes a new Mass was starting at a different altar…. Everywhere I turned, there was someone ready to feed me with the infinite strength of the Christ Who loved me.”

    That was the wondrous, pious Cuba the Castro brothers destroyed. And it is the Castro boys that Barack Obama, product of a pro-communist/pro-Castro mother and father and a literal Communist Party USA mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, is eager to embrace — and to forgive. Really, I’m sure that in his heart of hearts, Barack agrees with the Castros that America is the side that needs to be forgiven. America is the aggressor, the sinner that stands in need of reparation.

    That being the case, I’m equally sure that Obama felt no shame when Raul Castro snubbed him by not showing up to greet him when his plane landed — literally as 50 Cuban dissidents were arrested by the totalitarian state’s police goons. It was a humiliation, a disgrace, but a humiliation and disgrace that Obama, America’s president of fundamental transformation, no doubt felt was deserved.

    One modern Pharisee who rebuked Obama for this embarrassment is Donald Trump. Mercifully taking a break from torching Republicans as liars, losers, idiots, morons, and chokers, and from encouraging his own disciples to “knock the hell” and “knock the crap out” of dissenters at his rallies, Trump justly slammed Obama for the Castro slight.

    “Wow, President Obama just landed in Cuba, a big deal, and Raul Castro wasn’t even there to greet him,” Trump tweeted shortly before Obama blithely strolled inside the glorious Havana cathedral that the Castros have controlled for over half a century. “He [Raul] greeted Pope and others. No respect.”

    It was the best Tweet from the Tweet-master/insult-master in months. No one can sling it like Donald Trump. And he wasn’t finished.

    It was the best Tweet from the Tweet-master/insult-master in months. No one can sling it like Donald Trump. And he wasn’t finished.

    OBAMA EMBRACES CASTRO-COMMUNISM Dqban22 8/16/2015

    The Catholic Magazine “Ideal” couldn’t better describe the ceremony of raising the American flag at the U.S. embassy in Havana:

    “Another unpardonable treason…”

    “Absent at the ceremony were:”

    “Thousands murdered by Castro’s firing squads.”

    “Thousands of political prisoners.”

    “Thousands drowned at sea.”

    “Millions of Exiles.”

    “Millions of divided families.”

    “Millions of unborn babies.”

    “Three generations living in material And spiritual poverty.”

    One of the most used ad nauseam arguments to justify the unconditional surrender of president Obama to the Cuban Stalinist regime is that over 50 years U.S. commercial embargo against the Cuban communist regime did not work and that it damaged the Cuban people and not those in power without producing any political change in Cuba.

    The fact is that the embargo did not fail. What failed was the lack of solidarity of the rest of world with the enslaved Cuban people. There was not a worldwide blockade and repudiation of the Cuban Stalinist regime as it was enforced when the world decided to put an end to the apartheid regime in South Africa.

    In fact, the Soviet Union was not alone in the spoiling of Cuba. Spain, Canada and Mexico were also main partners and financiers of Castro’s terror network and the genocide of the Cuban people.

    Cuba has been under a brutal Stalinist regime frozen in time for over 56 years. The Castro brothers have killed and imprisoned more Cubans than during the worst period of the Stalin terror era in relation to its population.

    It is a fact that the Castro brothers have sent more than 20,000 Cubans to death at the “paredón” (firing squads) and that they are responsible for the death at sea of more than 40,000 men, women and children who fled the Cuban hell in fragile makeshift rafts preferring certain death at the Florida Straits rather than continue living in slavery. Castro is also responsible for the imprisonment and torture of over 500,000 Cubans (including children) during his 56 years of tyranny.

    According to the best world authority in Cuba’s History, English scholar Hugh Thomas, referring to the Cuban tragedy, (The Spectator, 7/12/1986) he affirmed that: “The comparison must be with the account of Nazi concentration camps. Although there are yet no gas chambers in Cuba, there have been experiments of a criminal biological type designed to see how far an individual can survive starvation, beating, solitary confinement, and many various kinds of ill treatment. Valladares’ account of working in a stone quarry is not dissimilar to, and no more humane than, the many accounts extant of ‘life’ in Manthausen. Nor should one forget that the brutalities in Nazi Germany lasted at most 12 years and the gross cruelties in the Auschwitz camp continue for four years.”

    During the last 56 years Cuba traded freely with the rest of world, including the U.S. since food and medicine were not included in the embargo, nor were the over billions of dollars sent to the Island prison by their family exiled in U.S. Cuba could buy anything from any other country, including American products. The problem for those who traded with Cuba is that they were not paid back for their delivered products and did not want to continue selling to Cuba on credit. One great success of the embargo is that American business and entrepreneurs were not defrauded again by the Castro regime because by law any of the trade allowed with Cuba must be paid for in advance.

    Cuba, a country that before the Communism was self sustained, with a solid economy and a currency that was accepted internationally on par to the dollar, a country that received immigrants while Cubans didn’t need to emigrate. After Castro's communist regime, Cuba became a hell hole where even the youth born indoctrinated after the revolution preferred to die at sea in quest of freedom than to continue living “in opprobrium and afrenta sumidos” (in opprobrium and affront sunk) in words of the Cuban national anthem.

    Many of the over 130 countries that trade with Cuba are prosperous without depending of trading with U.S. Cuba also traded freely before Castro with over 100 countries (including the Soviet Union). The Cubans enjoyed the highest standard of living in Latin America, and also higher than many Western European countries in the 1950’s. Cuba also enjoyed a top international credit rate. Now Cuba’s credit rate is at the level of Somalia while its standard of living is not much better than Haiti’s.

    The misery and oppression in Cuba are not due to the U.S. embargo, but to the legacy of communism with its sequel of destruction of the economic infrastructure of the country and of the work ethics and the moral that had previously characterized the Cuban people, traits of their ethos proved in any country where the Cuban exiles landed in their quest for freedom.

    The billions of dollars received annually from the Soviet Union were not used for the development of Cuba or in rising the meager lives of the Cubans, but to sustain Castro’s terror network all around the world, especially in Latin America, including the imperialist wars in Africa at the service of the Soviet Union’s ambitions in that continent. Castro’s worldwide terror network culminated with the Tricontinental Conference, where terrorists coordinated their worldwide war plans in Havana in 1966 under the leadership of Fidel Castro.

    THE TRUTH ABOUT THE CUBAN ‘EMBARGO’

    By the embargo U.S. was trying to contain Soviet-Cuban sponsored international terrorism:

    Every terror group from the American Weathermen to Puerto Rico’s Macheteros, from Argentina’s Montoneros, to Colombia’s FARC, from the Black Panthers to the IRA, and from the PLO to AL Fatah received training and funding from Castro.

    Granted, while most were not immediately defeated they were certainly contained. Then for three decades the Soviet Union was forced to pump the equivalent of almost ten Marshall Plans into Cuba. This drain on her resources certainly helped bankrupt the Evil Empire.

    Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam.

    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, shouted racial slurs at their victims, all but one of whom were white. “Kill all the white mother___s”, one of the attackers yelled. And the Fountain Valley Massacre began.

    LaBeet had converted to Islam under the influence of Malcolm X and had a history of assaults on white people. He and his fellow racist murderers were swarmed by left-wing civil rights attorneys eager to claim that they had been tortured into confessing. William Kunstler, the most notorious figure in the case, got a St. Croix vacation out of it while sleeping with the wife of Michael Ratner, the head of the Center for Constitutional Rights. But his claims of torture were undermined by his own clients.

    At his trial, Ishmael LaBeet yelled, “I killed them all. I don’t give a f__. I killed them all.” Supporters snapped Black Power salutes. The killers were found guilty and sentenced. But LaBeet had learned how to use civil rights to manipulate the system. His manipulations culminated in his successful hijacking of an airplane to Cuba. Today he is still there, north of Guantanamo, and claims to be a Communist.

    LaBeet is one of many racist terrorists who have killed Americans and who are being harbored by the Castro regime. The pain of his victims and the victims of other left-wing terrorists under the protection of the Castro crime family are not likely to move the radical extremist in the White House.

    Cuba holds the same appeal for Obama that it did for the leftist terrorists who hide out there today.

    Obama’s Bailout for Communist Dictators

    Posted By Daniel Greenfield On December 18, 2014 @ 12:44 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage |

    Carter couldn’t save Castro, but Obama did. This was not a prisoner exchange. This was a Communist bailout.
    The Soviet Union did not have to fall. If Carter had won a second term and Mondale had succeeded him, the Communist dictatorship might have received the outside help it needed to survive.

    And we would still be living under the shadow of the Cold War.

    Carter couldn’t save the Soviet Union, but he did his best to save Castro, visiting Fidel and Raul in Cuba where the second worst president in American history described his meeting with Castro as a greeting among “old friends”.
    Raul Castro called Carter “the best of all U.S. presidents.”
    Obama’s dirty deal with Raul will make the worst president in American history, Castro’s new best friend.

    Carter couldn’t save Castro, but Obama did. This was not a prisoner exchange. This was a Communist bailout.

    Obama boasted that he would increase the flow of money to Cuba from businesses, from bank accounts and from trade. When he said, “We’re significantly increasing the amount of money that can be sent to Cuba”, that was his real mission statement.

    The Castro regime is on its last legs. Its sponsors in Moscow and Caracas are going bankrupt due to failing energy prices. The last hope of the Butcher of Havana was a bailout from Washington D.C.

    And that’s exactly what Obama gave him.

    Obama has protected the Castros from regime change as if Communist dictators are an endangered species.

    The rest of the love affair of Obama for Communists tyrants

    A Day in Infamy - Barack Obama’s Cuban Pact

    Canada Free Press ^ | 12/20/14 | Obie Usategui

    http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/3239237/posts

    I consider Obama’s renewed relations with the communist island as one of the most despicable political acts I have ever been a witness to. Inherent evil of Barack Obama and his administration For the most part of the Cuban-American community residing in Miami, Florida, the day of Wednesday, December 17th, 2014, will—more likely than not—go down in their history books as a day in infamy, much the same as did December 7th, 1941, for all Americans. The former, when Barack Obama announced the U.S. restoring full relations with Cuba, including the opening of an embassy in the island—a bold move...

    “Just saying, Cuba has never had the heft/ability of the USSR or Communist China to inflict pain on the U.S. or any other country.”

    I wonder in what planet you have been living. Inflicting pain is the cornerstone of communism, and the main victim has been the Cuban people.

    In October 1961 there were nuclear missiles in Cuba and Castro and the Che pushed Nikita Khrushchev to nuke New York and Washington.

    In November 1961 the FBI aborted a Castro’s plan as deadly as 9/11 by detonating on Black Friday after Thanksgiving bombs in New York main department stores and the Central Station.

    Denotes supine ignorance to affirm that Cuba never had the ability to inflict pain to any country. Rivers of blood left Che Guevara and his Cuban thugs around Africa in Cuba’s failure campaign to impose communism in that continent. Latin America still suffers the scourge of the communist guerrillas trained and financed by Cuba.

    It is beyond believe to think that any American mentally sane could support Obama’s rescue of the Cuban terrorist regime that is at the border of total collapse. Venezuela will not be able to continue maintaining Castro’s regime afloat and Obama wants that the American taxpayers assume the “sugar daddy” responsibility, the same role that previously was played by the Soviet Union and later Venezuela pushing both countries to their bankruptcy. It seems to me that Obama is seeking Castro’s help to reach his goal, the bankruptcy of U.S.

    Castro is a very generous man, he will pay for the American companies confiscated by the communist regime with the American taxpayers monies that the magnanimous Obama will donate to the regime.

    So you are saying that Cuba has or had as much military capability ... on their own ... as USSR or Communist China? And you ask what planet I live on? What decade are you living in? The world has moved on since 1961. Perchance...you could join the rest of us?

    Did the Muslim terrorist need USSR or China military capability to put New York in his knees? The must the world change the more it remains the same. Cuba still has 50 miles from Havana a sophisticate Chinese electronic spy base to intercept every U.S. communication and a beach head for cyber warfare against U.S. Russia is reopening another spy base in the outskirts of Havana. Obama have bended to Castro, but the Castros’ hatred for U.S. has not diminished a bite over half a century.

    Unquestionable that Cubans deserve to be free. Their fight for freedom has been long and bloody. More Cubans in the quest for freedom were murdered by the regime right after the triumph of the revolution that Germans killed by Hitler in the first 3 years of Nazi Germany. There were more political prisoners in communist Cuba that during Stalin terror period.

    Obama have offered that the American taxpayers will finance unconditionally the Cuban regimen. Raul Castro daughter made it clear that Cuba will remain a close repressive Stalinist regime.

    If Cubans were allowed to travel freely, U.S. should be ready to receive 11 million Cubans (Mariel II). But Obama has a brilliant mind; he decided to extend U.S. welfare rolls to the 11 million Cubans on the island at American taxpayers’ expense.

    Unfortunately, Obama’s largesse will not go to benefit the enslaved Cuban people, but to grease the repressive apparatus and enrich even more, Fidel Castro, with $900 million wealth, he is one the richest chief state in the world while the Cubans live in abject misery.

    Obama is not trying to help the Cuban people but to condemn then to eternal damnation under a Stalinist regime.

    See No Terror, Hear No Terror, Speak No Terror (Obama on Cuba)

    Humberto Fontova
    Townhall 5/29/2015

    http://townhall.com/columnists/humbertofontova/2015/05/29/see-no-terror-hear-no-terror-speak-no-terror-obama-on-cuba-n2005717/print

    Today President Obama further opened the financial floodgates from the U.S. to the world’s most notorious deadbeat nation—who is also a “State Sponsor of Terrorism.”

    Quotation marks are now required around the term “State-Sponsor of Terrorism” when referring to Cuba because just this morning, as the 45 day notification period to Congress expired, President Obama officially removed Cuba from the State Department’s list of State Sponsors of Terrorism, where President Reagan had placed it in 1982.

    “Laughing all the way to the bank,” hardly does justice to what the multi-billionaire Castro family must be doing this week. The $7 billion they stole at Soviet gunpoint from U.S. businessmen in 1960 hasn’t even been mentioned by Obama’s “negotiators” as a “discussion topic” for U.S. “normalization.”

    And why should they mention it? Have any of them ever run a business? Tacky notions like settling up past debts before incurring new ones doesn’t figure into the mind-set of these ultra-educated Beltway bureaucrats. That yahoo Sam Drucker mentality just isn’t for them.

    Today’s further diplomatic benediction of Cuba by Obama means that the estimated $4.2 billion already flowing from the U.S. to Cuba annually will crank up nicely. This windfall resulted from Obama’s flurry of executive orders abolishing Presidents Reagan and Bush’s travel and remittance restrictions to Castro’s fiefdom.

    In brief, almost every year since Obama took office more cash has been flowing from the U.S. to Cuba than used to flow there from the Soviets at the height of their Cuba-sponsorship. Liberals and (libertarians) insist on calling such a state of financial affairs an “embargo.”

    Now this removal from the terror- list will allow the Castro family to further loot international financial institutions like the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. You’re aware, I’m sure, who ultimately foots most of the bill for these international welfare agencies, badly disguised as lending institutions?

    Right. The U.S. taxpayer.

    On John Stossel’s show recently your humble and hard-working servant tried explaining this peril to the U.S. taxpayer of Obama’s Cuba policy. Alas, libertarians (and thus presumably champions of the U.S. taxpayer?) Stossell and his CATO colleague blindly support Obama’s Cuba policy. So my effort was vain.

    As usual with libertarians, you present a real-world fact, they counter with a chant from the sacred texts of one of their economic gurus. You present another fully-documented historical event, they repeat their holy mantra. You’re better o reasoning with a Hare-Krishna.

    And speaking of terror-sponsorship. Just last week Cuba (practically) got caught red-handed supplying Chinese-made arms to the Western hemisphere’s oldest biggest and most murderous terror-group, Colombia’s FARC. The terror-death toll from these Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC) exceeds 200,000, and includes more U.S. citizens than have been murdered by ISIS.

    So maybe it was a mere coincidence that the very week Obama planned to remove Cuba as a terror-sponsor the mainstream media blacked-out any mention of this blatant terror-sponsorship by Cuba in our own backyard.

    Back in February, you see, Colombian authorities found 99 missile heads, 100 tons of gunpowder, 2.6 million detonators, and over 3,000 artillery shells hidden under rice sacks in a ship bound from Red China to Cuba that docked in the port of Cartagena Colombia.

    Most Cuba-watchers immediately guessed what was up. And just last week Colombian reporters (actually worthy of the name, unlike so many of ours) exposed the scheme.

    In brief:
    *The arms were from a Chinese manufacturer named Norinco and the recipient was a Cuban company named Tecnoimport.

    *But the ship stopped in the Colombian ports of Cartagena and Baranquilla (where the FARC is based, remember.)

    * Colombia’s crackerjack newspaper El Espectator also reports that many Norinco-manufactured arms have already been captured from FARC guerrillas over the past ten years.

    This proliferation of Cuba-smuggled Chinese arms to the terrorist FARC got so bad that in 2007-08 The Colombian authorities even send a diplomatic protest note to the Chinese.

    This awkward information at this awkward time, needless to say, might have hampered Obama’s plan to cleanse Castro from any taint of terror-sponsorship—assuming, that many people would have switched off the Kardashians to learn of it. Hence you’re only reading about it here at Townhall.

    Colombia’s FARC goes so far as to thank the Cuban regime for their immense success at terror. “Thanks to Fidel Castro” boasted late FARC commander Tiro-Fijo in a 2002 interview, “we are now a powerful army, not a hit and run band.”

    A few years ago a report from Colombia’s military intelligence DAS (Departamento Administrativo de Seguridad) obtained again by the crackerjack Colombian paper, El Espectador revealed that the FARC maintains a major office in Havana.

    And oh….almost forgot. What about the Cuban people, the folks whose felicity Obama claims as the goal of his Cuban “opening?”

    Well with their new Obama-issued economic lifeline gushing nicely, the Castro regime has unleashed a wave of terror on their subjects surpassing most of the terror of the past ten years, which is really saying something.

    BLACK FRIDAY GREETINGS FROM FIDEL AND CHE

    By Humberto Fontova
    11/28/2011

    http://townhall.com/columnists/humbertofontova/2011/11/28/black_friday_greetings_from_fidel_and_che/page/full

    Intrepid terrorists could get maximum bang for their buck on “Black Friday.” A few well-placed bombs and the carnage would easily shame 9/11’s.

    Macy’s, for instance, serves tens of thousands of shoppers that one day. If nothing else, the theme would make for a hair-raising Hollywood drama or disaster blockbuster.

    Credibility might be a problem, however. After all, even the most bloodthirsty and psychopathic of terrorists seek government or semi-military targets: The Pentagon, The U.S.S. Cole, Marine barracks in Lebanon, embassies in Kenya, Saudi Arabia, etc. Typecasting one who craved massive civilian carnage for the malicious sake of massive civilian carnage might edge the movie over into a James Bondor Austin Powers comedy genre.

    Yet the movie could be based on a terrorist living today who planned this very type of civilian carnage 49 years ago. On Nov. 17, 1962, J Edgar Hoover’s FBI cracked a terrorist plot by Castro-Cuban agents that targeted Macy’s, Gimbel’s, Bloomindales and Manhattan’s Grand Central Station with a dozen incendiary devices and 500 kilos of TNT. The holocaust was set to go off the following week, the day after Thanksgiving.

    A little perspective: the March 2004 Madrid subway blasts, all 10 of the explosions that killed and maimed almost 2000 people, 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 — and on the year’s biggest shopping day, for good measure.

    Thousands of New Yorkers— probably mostly women and children given the date— were to be incinerated and entombed. Castro and Che planned their Manhattan holocaust just weeks after Nikita Khrushchevfoiled their plans for an even bigger massacre during the Cuban Missile Crisis. “If the missiles had remained,” Che Guevara confided to The London Daily Worker the following month, “we would have used them against the very heart of the U.S., including New York City.”

    Cuba’s agents for this Manhattan Thanksgiving bomb plot were members of the Cuban mission to the United Nations, and were working in concert with members of the Fair Play For Cuba Committee, an outfit that became much better known a year later this very week.

    Had those detonators gone off the day after Thanksgiving in 1962, 9/11 might be remembered as the second deadliest terrorist attack on U.S. soil.

    Castro planned his Manhattan holocaust short weeks after Nikita Khrushchevfoiled his plans for an even bigger one. “Say hello to my little friends!” Castro dreamt of yelling at the hated Yankees in October 1962, right before the mushroom clouds. But for the prudence of the Butcher of Budapest, Castro might have pulled it off. “If the missiles had remained,” Fidel’s sidekick Che Guevara confided to the London Daily Worker in November 1962 regarding the Cuban missile crisis, “We would have fired them against the very heart of the U.S., including New York.”

    Castro’s Manhattan bomb plot was far from “irrational.” He’s no suicide bomber — not by a long shot. Some Cuba-watchers speculate that Castro wanted to blast Manhattan to heat things up again, to rekindle all those thrills he’d experienced the previous weeks during the missile crisis.

    Given the temper of the times, he knew his Soviet sugar daddies would be implicated too. Then the U.S. might retaliate. Then Castro might get what he’d dreamed about and tried to provoke a few weeks earlier: an intercontinental nuclear exchange.

    Millions dead in the United States. Millions dead in the Soviet Union. And almost certainly, millions dead in his own Cuba. But Castro himself would be nowhere near harms way.

    Soviet ambassador to Cuba during the missile crisis, Alexander Alexeyev, reports a fascinating — if unsurprising — datum about those days. While Castro was begging, threatening, even trying to trick Khrushchev into launching a pre-emptive nuclear strike against the U.S. — while he was ranting and yelling and waving his arms about grabbing his Czech machine gun and “fighting the Yankee invaders to the last man!” — while frantically involved in all this, a “fearful” (Alexeyev’s term) Castro was also making reservations with Alexeyev for a first-class seat in the Soviet Embassy’s bomb shelter. Thus he’d emerge into the smoldering rubble and millions of incinerated bodies and realize his lifelong dream: his name stamped in history as the gallant David against the Yankee Goliath.

    Castro’s agents for his Manhattan Thanksgiving bomb plot were members of the Cuban mission to the United Nations working in concert with members of the Fair Play For Cuba Committee, an outfit that became much better known a year later when member Lee Harvey Oswaldreally racked up some headlines.

    Incidentally, at the time of the Manhattan terror plot, the Fair Play For Cuba Committee also included among its members, CBS correspondent Robert Taber (an early version of Dan Rather, who conducted Castro’s first network television soft-soaping on Aug. 30, 1957), along with The Nation magazine co-owner Alan Sagner. In 1996 President Clinton appointed the Alan Sagner head of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

    In October 1961 there were nuclear missiles in Cuba and Castro and the Che pushed Nikita Khrushchev to nuke New York and Washington.

    In November 1961 the FBI aborted a Castro’s plan as deadly as 9/11 by detonating on Black Friday after Thanksgiving bombs in New York main department stores and the Central Station.

    Denotes supine ignorance to affirm that Cuba never had the ability to inflict pain to any country. Rivers of blood left Che Guevara and his Cuban thugs around Africa in Cuba’s failure campaign to impose communism in that continent. Latin America still suffers the scourge of the communist guerrillas trained and financed by Cuba.

    It is beyond believe to think that any American mentally sane could support Obama’s rescue of the Cuban terrorist regime that is at the border of total collapse. Venezuela will not be able to continue maintaining Castro’s regime afloat and Obama wants that the American taxpayers assume the “sugar daddy” responsibility, the same role that previously was played by the Soviet Union and later Venezuela pushing both countries to their bankruptcy. It seems to me that Obama is seeking Castro’s help to reach his goal, the bankruptcy of U.S.

    Castro is a very generous man, he will pay for the American companies confiscated by the communist regime with the American taxpayers monies that the magnanimous Obama will donate to the regime.

    So you are saying that Cuba has or had as much military capability ... on their own ... as USSR or Communist China? And you ask what planet I live on? What decade are you living in? The world has moved on since 1961. Perchance...you could join the rest of us?

    Did the Muslim terrorist need USSR or China military capability to put New York in his knees? The must the world change the more it remains the same. Cuba still has 50 miles from Havana a sophisticate Chinese electronic spy base to intercept every U.S. communication and a beach head for cyber warfare against U.S. Russia is reopening another spy base in the outskirts of Havana. Obama have bended to Castro, but the Castros’ hatred for U.S. has not diminished a bite over half a century.

    Unquestionable that Cubans deserve to be free. Their fight for freedom has been long and bloody. More Cubans in the quest for freedom were murdered by the regime right after the triumph of the revolution that Germans killed by Hitler in the first 3 years of Nazi Germany. There were more political prisoners in communist Cuba that during Stalin terror period.

    Obama have offered that the American taxpayers will finance unconditionally the Cuban regimen. Raul Castro daughter made it clear that Cuba will remain a close repressive Stalinist regime.

    If Cubans were allowed to travel freely, U.S. should be ready to receive 11 million Cubans (Mariel II). But Obama has a brilliant mind; he decided to extend U.S. welfare rolls to the 11 million Cubans on the island at American taxpayers’ expense.

    Unfortunately, Obama’s largesse will not go to benefit the enslaved Cuban people, but to grease the repressive apparatus and enrich even more, Fidel Castro, with $900 million wealth, he is one the richest chief state in the world while the Cubans live in abject misery.

    Obama is not trying to help the Cuban people but to condemn then to eternal damnation under a Stalinist regime.

    A Day in Infamy - Barack Obama’s Cuban Pact

    I consider Obama’s renewed relations with the communist island as one of the most despicable political acts I have ever been a witness to. Inherent evil of Barack Obama and his administration For the most part of the Cuban-American community residing in Miami, Florida, the day of Wednesday, December 17th, 2014, will—more likely than not—go down in their history books as a day in infamy, much the same as did December 7th, 1941, for all Americans. The former, when Barack Obama announced the U.S. restoring full relations with Cuba, including the opening of an embassy in the island—a bold move...

Latin America still suffers the scourge of the communist guerrillas trained and financed by Cuba.

    It is beyond believe to think that any American mentally sane could support Obama’s rescue of the Cuban terrorist regime that is at the border of total collapse. Venezuela will not be able to continue maintaining Castro’s regime afloat and Obama wants that the American taxpayers assume the “sugar daddy” responsibility, the same role that previously was played by the Soviet Union and later Venezuela pushing both countries to their bankruptcy. It seems to me that Obama is seeking Castro’s help to reach his goal, the bankruptcy of U.S.

    Castro is a very generous man, he will pay for the American companies confiscated by the communist regime with the American taxpayers monies that the magnanimous Obama will donate to the regime.

    So you are saying that Cuba has or had as much military capability ... on their own ... as USSR or Communist China? And you ask what planet I live on? What decade are you living in? The world has moved on since 1961. Perchance...you could join the rest of us?

    Did the Muslim terrorist need USSR or China military capability to put New York in his knees? The must the world change the more it remains the same. Cuba still has 50 miles from Havana a sophisticate Chinese electronic spy base to intercept every U.S. communication and a beach head for cyber warfare against U.S. Russia is reopening another spy base in the outskirts of Havana. Obama have bended to Castro, but the Castros’ hatred for U.S. has not diminished a bite over half a century.

    Unquestionable that Cubans deserve to be free. Their fight for freedom has been long and bloody. More Cubans in the quest for freedom were murdered by the regime right after the triumph of the revolution that Germans killed by Hitler in the first 3 years of Nazi Germany. There were more political prisoners in communist Cuba that during Stalin terror period.

    Obama have offered that the American taxpayers will finance unconditionally the Cuban regimen. Raul Castro daughter made it clear that Cuba will remain a close repressive Stalinist regime.

    If Cubans were allowed to travel freely, U.S. should be ready to receive 11 million Cubans (Mariel II). But Obama has a brilliant mind; he decided to extend U.S. welfare rolls to the 11 million Cubans on the island at American taxpayers’ expense.

    Unfortunately, Obama’s largesse will not go to benefit the enslaved Cuban people, but to grease the repressive apparatus and enrich even more, Fidel Castro, with $900 million wealth, he is one the richest chief state in the world while the Cubans live in abject misery.

    Obama is not trying to help the Cuban people but to condemn then to eternal damnation under a Stalinist regime.

    CASTRO AND INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM

    With the criminal terrorist attack against the U.S. it seems to be pertinent to bring to the forefront information about Castro that, although in public records, has been dangerously ignored by the U.S. government and the American people - perhaps to satisfy the far-left agenda controlling the media and academia.

    Cuba’s proximity to the U.S. and Castro’s hatred for this country and its institutions, and his years of training, arming and aiding terrorists to conduct his public war against the U.S. and his sinister underground plans against this country to cause havoc and destruction, make it relevant to point out these well-founded facts. America’s wake-up call must include our hemisphere’s greatest international terrorist.

    The documentation of Fidel Castro’s known involvement in international terrorism goes back to his active participation in the April 1948 revolt in Bogota, Colombia.

    According to Georgie Anne Geyer’s “Guerrilla Prince,” this revolt left 5,000 dead and a third of Bogota in ashes. The same book recounts his involvement in the December 1948 attempt to overthrow Dominican Republic dictator Rafael Leonidas Trujillo.

    In addition, Castro masterminded a failed terrorist attack on the Moncada Garrison on July 26, 1953, where his men killed, in cold blood, soldiers in their hospital beds.

    After Batista pardoned and released Castro from a privileged tenure of about 19 months of his 15-year sentence for his Moncada attack, he went to Mexico, where in August 1955 he established contact with the Soviet KGB agent Nikolai Leonov. And the future of Cuba was compromised onto a sinister, radical, left-wing fascist path.

    After his return to Cuba in the Sierra Maestra, he began blackmailing, terrorizing and executing farmers in that area who refused to supply him with food or join his effort. He also kidnapped American marines and others to gain political leverage. In the cities, his terrorist actions in public places resulted in many civilian deaths.

    According to Dr. Armando Lago’s research for a book, “2,826 lost their lives during the struggle against Batista between March 10, 1952 and December 31, 1958. Castro’s forces were responsible for 1432 of the deaths and Batista for 1394.”

    Dr. Lago says his figures are based on details provided by Bohemia magazine, although, as a supporter of Castro, the magazine’s headline proclaimed 20,000 deaths – the figure often quoted by Castro. Castro’s unsupported figure of 20,000 is what the media publishes all over the world without questioning its veracity as do as the academics in the learning centers in the U.S. and abroad.

    Castro’s reign of terror began with his takeover of Cuba in 1959 and his summary executions without trials, massive incarcerations, setting aside the Constitution and organizing doomed armed operations against Panama and the Dominican Republic to export his left-wing fascist terror, disguised as “liberation.”

    Because of his well-documented hatred for the United States and the freedom it represents, he concocted a plan to send drugs into this country. Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld’s 1988 paper “Narco-Terrorism and the Cuban Connection” refers to a secret report by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) published by the Miami Herald in November 1983 corroborating and dating Castro’s participation in drug-trafficking into the U.S. to 1961.

    Castro, with his visceral hatred for the U.S., asked Khrushchev during the October 1962 Missile Crisis to lunch a nuclear attack against the U.S. And during the Vietnam War, Castro dispatched his henchmen to Hanoi to viciously torture U.S. POWs as documented by the historians Stuart Rochester and Frederick Riley’s book “Honor Bound.”

    Since very early on Castro has been involved in arming, training and offering sanctuary to terrorists from all over the world. Dr. Ehrenfeld says in her paper that the 1979 edition of the “Soviet Military Encyclopedia” recommends “the use of ‘biological weapons, narcotics, terrorist activities, poisons and other methods.

    This definition accords with a decision made at the Tri-Continental Conference of world revolutionary groups held in Havana in January 1966. The decision called for the planned destabilization of the United States and explicitly detailed such activities as the exploitation and undermining of American society through the trafficking of drugs and promotion of other corrupting criminal activities.”

    According to Irving Louis Horowitz’s Preface of David J. Kopilow’s 1985 paper “Castro, Israel and the PLO,” this Tri-Continental Conference, heavily attended by more than 500 delegates from radical leftist groups and terrorists, led “a series of moves ranging from Cuban co-sponsorship of the U.N. General Assembly resolution condemning ‘Zionism as Racism’ to manifest training and support for PLO efforts.”

    Castro provided tank crews that fought alongside the Syrians against Israel in the 1973 Syrian-Israeli “war of attrition.” At a point, Cuba had 3,000 troops deployed in Syria.

    Horowitz says, “even the exceptional talents of Jewish writers on post-revolutionary Cuba, often harnessed in support of the Castro regime, reveals a seamier side: the deep, embittered silence of these scholars of Jewish origin when confronted with the burdensome evidence of Castro’s unbridled anti-Semitism, coupled with the near total disintegration of the pre-1959 thriving Jewish community of Havana in particular and Cuba in general.” Castro decimated the Jewish community in Cuba; today about 700 remain.

    “Castro has helped the PLO gain prominence in the United Nations and other international arenas, introduced the PLO into Central America, [and Africa] provided direct military support by sending troops to the Middle East, and giving training to PLO terrorists.” And Kopilow also documents that one of the most famous graduates of the Cuban terrorist training’s camps was Illich Ramirez Sanchez, known as “’Carlos the Jackal,’ who was responsible for much success of Palestinian terrorism in Europe.”

    He also says, “The Havana office of the PLO is now located in the same building which houses the Cuban Zionist Center.” In 1981, the PLO arranged a Libyan loan to Cuba of nearly $50 million.

    Castro maintains close working relations with Libya’s Moammar Qaddafi. According to an AP dispatch dated May 16, 2001, Castro visited Qaddafi “six times” from March 6 to May 16, 2001. This last suspicious visit was after visiting Algeria, Iran, Malaysia, Qatar and Syria. Qaddafi even presented him in the past with a “human rights” award for “his fight against the U.S.”

    Castro cultivates the alliance of other devotee warmonger/U.S.-hating tyrants such as Iraq’s Saddam Hussein as well as other state sponsors of terrorism in the Middle East and other parts of the world. Curiously, they all appear on the U.S. State Department’s “Patterns of Global Terrorism – 2000,” released on April 30, 2001.

    This is an annual report sent to Congress that has been listing Cuba since 1993; see U.S. Cuba Policy Report, April 30, 2001, page 9. Castro developed a relationship with Saddam Hussein since both share a fondness for bacteriological weapons.

    In a September 1997 article by Jonathan T. Stride titled “Who Will Check Out Fidel Castro’s New Chemical/Biological Weapons Plant in East Havana?”, Castro’s chemical/biological weapons factories are exposed – probably based on a Confidential Report translated from Spanish on February 1997.

    Also, we can find more information about Castro’s involvement with bacteriological and chemical warfare in Dr. Manuel Cereijo’s paper “Castro: A Threat To The Security Of The United States,” dated October 1997. In an article in Spanish by Roberto Fabricio published by El Nuevo Herald on June 20, 1999. And in an Executive Summary titled “Is Castro Preparing for a Gotterdammerun?” by Ernesto F. Betancourt, Sept. 9, 1999, we can see the connection between the tyrants.

    In his summary Betancourt says, “It has been widely commented that the CIA has found that the genetic and biotechnology industry, one of Castro’s pet projects, is nothing but a cover for developing biological weapons. This industry is housed in a complex of buildings in the Miramar zone of Havana, some of which are reported to have the usual security measures associated with biological weapons development. It is this knowledge that led Defense Secretary William Cohen in 1998 to caution the earlier Pentagon report about Cuba not being any longer a military threat to the U.S.”

    In another paper by Betancourt dated October 18, 1999, titled “The Encephalitis Outbreak, Hussein and Castro: A CIA/CDC Cover-Up?”, he traced the possible connection and cooperation between the two tyrants exporting viruses to the U.S. Betancourt, among others, cites The New Yorker’s October 18-25, 1999 article by Richard Preston saying “a quotation made by Saddam refers to a dossier about ‘details of his ultimate weapon, developed in secret laboratories outside Iraq.

    Free of U.N. inspection, the laboratories would develop the SV1417 strain of the West Nile virus –capable of destroying 97 percent of life in an urban environment . . ..’ Now, where could such a research be undertaken?”

    Betancourt suggests a few characteristics that will help pin point these “secret laboratories outside Iraq.” “It must have a technological capability to undertake such research, a country friendly to Iraq and hostile to the U.S., outside the reach of any U.N. inspection, a closed society, where these activities can be free of press coverage; and located within the reach of migratory birds.

    There is one place on earth that meets those requirements: Castro’s Cuba. The research undertaken in Cuba is precisely centered on developing virus strains suitable to be inoculated to the many migratory birds that fly North-South in the Fall and South-North in the Spring. It can be concluded that Cuba is the most plausible candidate for the germ warfare research and development activities referred to by Saddam Hussein in The New Yorker article.”

    This paper quotes John Roehrig of the CDC saying, “it is not yet clear how the virus got to New York, but it could be from bird migration or from virus-carrying imported birds that infected the area’s mosquito population.”

    Citing details from others, Betancourt concludes, “How this virus reached the U.S. is an epidemiological mystery, since it has never been identified in North or South America.

    Castro has been for almost twenty years engaged in the development of germ warfare capabilities as well as in a delivery system using migratory birds to introduce epidemics into the U.S. to be transmitted by mosquitoes.”

    According to a former researcher of the Cuban Zoo Institute who now lives in Switzerland, Carlos Wotzkow, author of the 1998 book Natumaleza Cubana, we learn on its page 65 that unfortunately, the Smithsonian Institution collaborated with Castro by economically funding the study of migratory birds along with the University of Pennsylvania.

    According to a well-informed source wishing to remain anonymous, the following U.S. institutions collaborated with information and gave funds to Cuba to conduct the study of migratory birds. They are the Department of Ornithology of the American Museum of Natural History in New York, the Fish and Wildlife Service, the Nebraska Section of the Department of the Interior, The Audubon Society and RARE, a Center for Tropical Conservation, supported by the MacArthur Foundation. Let me clarify that these U.S. institutions probably did not have any idea that the information gained by Cuba was going to be used for the sinister purpose of exporting diseases to the U.S.

    And sadly, American tourists leave their money in Cuba ignoring that they are contributing to the support of a terrorist regime that seeks their own destruction.

    According to Castro’s own words, “his destiny” will be “to wage a war against them” [the U.S.], as he wrote on June 5, 1958 to his secretary, the late Celia Sanchez (available in public records). The message is loud and clear, how naïve can we afford to continue being in the U.S.?

    Radio Marti reported last August 26, 2001, as well as other American newspapers, that the West Nile virus in the U.S. has been spreading faster then expected. Radio Marti reported cases in north Florida. Other newspapers reported cases in New York, Baltimore, Washington, D.C. and Georgia.

    Radio Marti reported that Wotzkow says that “in 1980 Castro ordered the unleashing of a biological war against the U.S.” and quoted Dr. Luis Roberto Hernandez saying “Cuba’s laboratories identify and produce viruses for migratory birds.” Betancourt’s article published in Spanish in Miami’s El Nuevo Herald appeared as the main source in Radio Marti’s report.

    In addition, Castro’s Cuba is a training ground and sanctuary for Basque terrorists responsible for hundreds of deaths in Spain, terrorists from Ireland, Colombia, Puerto Rico and other nationalities, hijackers, drug-traffickers, outlaws, fugitive U.S. criminals, and a collection of the scum of the earth (all U.S.-haters).

    Cuba, 90 miles from the U.S., has two powerful spy stations in the outskirts of Havana. One built and still updated and maintained by the former Soviet Union, and another built not long ago by our Chinese “friends.”

    Both of these stations are actively engaged in collecting
    military, economic and civilian information and are certainly sharing their findings with terrorists worldwide.

    According to Dr. Manuel Cereijo‘s 1997 paper, they have the capability “of interrupting commercial and military computer communications in the United States, in case of a confrontation with this country.” Also, Cereijo says that Cuba regularly develops computer viruses “with the intent of using them to disrupt computer systems during time of war or crisis.” Many Cuban Americans in the U.S. have had their computers damaged by made-in-Cuba viruses.

    Castro still keeps sending his agents and spies to the U.S. His U.N. Cuban Mission in New York and the Cuba Interests Section in Washington, D.C. are nothing but nests of trained security agents posing as diplomats.

    Last April 2000, in Washington, D.C., a press conference was broadcast by local FOX TV protesting the Cuban “diplomats” attack of peaceful demonstrators on U.S. soil. In it, Joe Carrollo, the Mayor of Miami, revealed an intelligence report charging current Cuba Charge d’Affairs, Fernando Remirez de Estenoz, as the person who introduced bacteriological weapons to kill blacks by Cuban soldiers during the war in Angola, Africa.

    With the end of Soviet communism, the U.S. government and the American people thought that the danger to this country was over. But it is not so for as long as there are so many nations who literally hate our guts and are overcome with envy for what this country is thanks to our freedom and democracy.

    Recently, this hatred was clearly demonstrated by expelling the U.S. from the U.N. Commission on Human Rights and by the shameless racist conduct of many nations during the recent U.N. World Conference Against Racism in Durban, South Africa.

    Among those attending that sham was Castro, one of the oldest tyrants in the Western World, who violates all human rights and, as documented by Jim Guirard in a recent article, “Behind the Mask - A Fascist Fidel,” practices racism, anti-Semitism, homophobia and sexism.

    Castro also practices apartheid and caused the deaths of more than 100,000 in Cuba and thousands abroad. As usual, Castro blasted and blamed the U.S. for all evil in the world, and his many admirers in the U.N. applauded him with gusto.

    For as long as this unjust hatred for the U.S. persists and rogue nations, such as Cuba, among others, give sanctuary to international terrorists and collaborate by providing training, intelligence, and logistic support, despicable and unforgivable acts like the attack of Sept. 11, 2001, will continue.

    Do not get confused by the hypocritical messages of condolence sent by Castro and many of our cowardly enemies who aid and give sanctuary to terrorism and now fear the might of this nation and its people.

    It is time for America to wake up to the realities surrounding us and realize that not all cultures share our values. It is time for resolve and to go to the root of the problems, which are a group of nations, run by tyrannies that are unable to live and let live in a civilized way and in peace with the rest of the planet. The choice is clear.

    Castro hasn’t (yet) orchestrated a massive event causing the instant deaths of thousands of Americans, but the effects of his actions – spread out over 42 years – have probably affected even more. And are the tourists who help support him and the media so anxious to give him the opportunity to spread his word, now, officially (in the words of our president) accomplices?

    In addition, Castro’s Cuba is a training ground and sanctuary for Basque terrorists responsible for hundreds of deaths in Spain, terrorists from Ireland, Colombia, Puerto Rico and other nationalities, hijackers, drug-traffickers, outlaws, fugitive U.S. criminals, and a collection of the scum of the earth (all U.S.-haters).

    Cuba, 90 miles from the U.S., has two powerful spy stations in the outskirts of Havana. One built and still updated and maintained by the former Soviet Union, and another built not long ago by our Chinese “friends.”

    Both of these stations are actively engaged in collecting
    military, economic and civilian information and are certainly sharing their findings with terrorists worldwide.

    According to Dr. Manuel Cereijo‘s 1997 paper, they have the capability “of interrupting commercial and military computer communications in the United States, in case of a confrontation with this country.” Also, Cereijo says that Cuba regularly develops computer viruses “with the intent of using them to disrupt computer systems during time of war or crisis.” Many Cuban Americans in the U.S. have had their computers damaged by made-in-Cuba viruses.

    Castro still keeps sending his agents and spies to the U.S. His U.N. Cuban Mission in New York and the Cuba Interests Section in Washington, D.C. are nothing but nests of trained security agents posing as diplomats.

    Last April 2000, in Washington, D.C., a press conference was broadcast by local FOX TV protesting the Cuban “diplomats” attack of peaceful demonstrators on U.S. soil. In it, Joe Carrollo, the Mayor of Miami, revealed an intelligence report charging current Cuba Charge d’Affairs, Fernando Remirez de Estenoz, as the person who introduced bacteriological weapons to kill blacks by Cuban soldiers during the war in Angola, Africa.

    With the end of Soviet communism, the U.S. government and the American people thought that the danger to this country was over. But it is not so for as long as there are so many nations who literally hate our guts and are overcome with envy for what this country is thanks to our freedom and democracy.

    Recently, this hatred was clearly demonstrated by expelling the U.S. from the U.N. Commission on Human Rights and by the shameless racist conduct of many nations during the recent U.N. World Conference Against Racism in Durban, South Africa.

    Among those attending that sham was Castro, one of the oldest tyrants in the Western World, who violates all human rights and, as documented by Jim Guirard in a recent article, “Behind the Mask - A Fascist Fidel,” practices racism, anti-Semitism, homophobia and sexism.

    Castro also practices apartheid and caused the deaths of more than 100,000 in Cuba and thousands abroad. As usual, Castro blasted and blamed the U.S. for all evil in the world, and his many admirers in the U.N. applauded him with gusto.

    For as long as this unjust hatred for the U.S. persists and rogue nations, such as Cuba, among others, give sanctuary to international terrorists and collaborate by providing training, intelligence, and logistic support, despicable and unforgivable acts like the attack of Sept. 11, 2001, will continue.

    Do not get confused by the hypocritical messages of condolence sent by Castro and many of our cowardly enemies who aid and give sanctuary to terrorism and now fear the might of this nation and its people.

    It is time for America to wake up to the realities surrounding us and realize that not all cultures share our values. It is time for resolve and to go to the root of the problems, which are a group of nations, run by tyrannies that are unable to live and let live in a civilized way and in peace with the rest of the planet. The choice is clear.

    Castro hasn’t (yet) orchestrated a massive event causing the instant deaths of thousands of Americans, but the effects of his actions – spread out over 42 years – have probably affected even more. And are the tourists who help support him and the media so anxious to give him the opportunity to spread his word, now, officially (in the words of our president) accomplices?

    Inexcusable ignorance

  • Will Obama Demand Cuba Hand Over Fugitive Cop-Killer?

    While Belgium is paralyze by an horrendous Islamic terrorist attack, Obama embraced the Cuban Stalinist regime, the longest lasting terrorist country in the world. Right after dedicating 30 second to the Brussels massacre, Obama went with the Cuban dictator to enjoy a baseball game between a Cuban and American team instead of returning to Washington.

    See No Terror, Hear No Terror, Speak No Terror (Obama on Cuba)

    http://townhall.com/columnists/humbertofontova/2015/05/29/see-no-terror-hear-no-terror-speak-no-terror-obama-on-cuba-n2005717/print

    Today President Obama further opened the financial floodgates from the U.S. to the world’s most notorious deadbeat nation—who is also a “State Sponsor of Terrorism.”

    Quotation marks are now required around the term “State-Sponsor of Terrorism” when referring to Cuba because just this morning, as the 45 day notification period to Congress expired, President Obama officially removed Cuba from the State Department’s list of State Sponsors of Terrorism, where President Reagan had placed it in 1982.

    “Laughing all the way to the bank,” hardly does justice to what the multi-billionaire Castro family must be doing this week. The $7 billion they stole at Soviet gunpoint from U.S. businessmen in 1960 hasn’t even been mentioned by Obama’s “negotiators” as a “discussion topic” for U.S. “normalization.”

    And why should they mention it? Have any of them ever run a business? Tacky notions like settling up past debts before incurring new ones doesn’t figure into the mind-set of these ultra-educated Beltway bureaucrats. That yahoo Sam Drucker mentality just isn’t for them.

    Today’s further diplomatic benediction of Cuba by Obama means that the estimated $4.2 billion already flowing from the U.S. to Cuba annually will crank up nicely. This windfall resulted from Obama’s flurry of executive orders abolishing Presidents Reagan and Bush’s travel and remittance restrictions to Castro’s fiefdom.

    In brief, almost every year since Obama took office more cash has been flowing from the U.S. to Cuba than used to flow there from the Soviets at the height of their Cuba-sponsorship. Liberals and (libertarians) insist on calling such a state of financial affairs an “embargo.”

    Now this removal from the terror- list will allow the Castro family to further loot international financial institutions like the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. You’re aware, I’m sure, who ultimately foots most of the bill for these international welfare agencies, badly disguised as lending institutions?

    Right. The U.S. taxpayer.

    On John Stossel’s show recently your humble and hard-working servant tried explaining this peril to the U.S. taxpayer of Obama’s Cuba policy. Alas, libertarians (and thus presumably champions of the U.S. taxpayer?) Stossell and his CATO colleague blindly support Obama’s Cuba policy. So my effort was vain.

    As usual with libertarians, you present a real-world fact, they counter with a chant from the sacred texts of one of their economic gurus. You present another fully-documented historical event, they repeat their holy mantra. You’re better o reasoning with a Hare-Krishna.

    And speaking of terror-sponsorship. Just last week Cuba (practically) got caught red-handed supplying Chinese-made arms to the Western hemisphere’s oldest biggest and most murderous terror-group, Colombia’s FARC. The terror-death toll from these Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC) exceeds 200,000, and includes more U.S. citizens than have been murdered by ISIS.

    So maybe it was a mere coincidence that the very week Obama planned to remove Cuba as a terror-sponsor the mainstream media blacked-out any mention of this blatant terror-sponsorship by Cuba in our own backyard.

    Back in February, you see, Colombian authorities found 99 missile heads, 100 tons of gunpowder, 2.6 million detonators, and over 3,000 artillery shells hidden under rice sacks in a ship bound from Red China to Cuba that docked in the port of Cartagena Colombia.

    Most Cuba-watchers immediately guessed what was up. And just last week Colombian reporters (actually worthy of the name, unlike so many of ours) exposed the scheme.

    In brief:
    *The arms were from a Chinese manufacturer named Norinco and the recipient was a Cuban company named Tecnoimport.

    *But the ship stopped in the Colombian ports of Cartagena and Baranquilla (where the FARC is based, remember.)

    * Colombia’s crackerjack newspaper El Espectator also reports that many Norinco-manufactured arms have already been captured from FARC guerrillas over the past ten years.

    This proliferation of Cuba-smuggled Chinese arms to the terrorist FARC got so bad that in 2007-08 The Colombian authorities even send a diplomatic protest note to the Chinese.

    This awkward information at this awkward time, needless to say, might have hampered Obama’s plan to cleanse Castro from any taint of terror-sponsorship—assuming, that many people would have switched off the Kardashians to learn of it. Hence you’re only reading about it here at Townhall.

    Colombia’s FARC goes so far as to thank the Cuban regime for their immense success at terror. “Thanks to Fidel Castro” boasted late FARC commander Tiro-Fijo in a 2002 interview, “we are now a powerful army, not a hit and run band.”

    A few years ago a report from Colombia’s military intelligence DAS (Departamento Administrativo de Seguridad) obtained again by the crackerjack Colombian paper, El Espectador revealed that the FARC maintains a major office in Havana.

    And oh….almost forgot. What about the Cuban people, the folks whose felicity Obama claims as the goal of his Cuban “opening?”

    Well with their new Obama-issued economic lifeline gushing nicely, the Castro regime has unleashed a wave of terror on their subjects surpassing most of the terror of the past ten years, which is really saying something.

    * Castro sent military instructors and advisors into Palestinian bases in Jordan to train Palestinian Fedayeen (1968); first high-level delegation from FATAH-PLO visited Cuba (1970).
    * Several missions sent to Southern Yemen to support NLF/FATAH Ismail both politically and militarily.
    * Castro began supporting and training of M19, a Colombian guerrilla group that captured the Dominican Embassy and the Justice building in Bogota and assassinated several prominent Colombian judges.
    * In 1970 a “Mini Manual for Revolutionaries” was published in the official LASO publication Tricontinental, written by Brazilian urban terrorist leader Carlos Marighella. The mini manual gives precise instruction in terror tactics, kidnappings, etc. The short book was translated into numerous languages and distributed worldwide by Cuba.
    * Cuba commenced political and military cooperation with Somalia’s Siad Barre (1969).
    * Economic and political cooperation began with Libya in 1974.
    * In 1974 the National Liberation Directorate (DLN) was reorganized into the America Department (DA) under the Communist Party of Cuba Central Committee. The DA centralized control over Cuban activities for supporting national liberation movements. The DA was responsible for planning and coordinating Cuba’s secret guerrilla and terrorist training camps, networks for the covert movement of personnel and material from Cuba, and a propaganda apparatus. DA agents also operated in Europe and other regions. Trusted Castro ally Manuel Pi±eiro, “ Barbaroja” was placed in charge.
    * Cuba provided training and support to the Tupamaros, a terrorist group operating in Uruguay.
    * Cuba’s America Department (DA) set up a network for the funneling of weapons and supplies to the Sandinistas in Nicaragua.

    * Additional military and political support provided to the Palestinian cause; Arafat attended the Sixth Non-Aligned Conference in Havana (1979).
    * During Havana visit, Arafat signed agreement for military cooperation and arms supply.
    * Significant hard currency loans (tens of million) were facilitated by Arafat-PLO to the Cuban government under very soft terms; Cuba granted diplomatic and political support to Arafat during the 1982 Israeli invasion of Lebanon.
    * The Aden (South Yemen) regime supported the Ethiopian radical officers commanded by Mengistu Haile Mariam, sending Yemeni military units in support of the latter against Somali aggression, and asking the Cubans to do the same.

    THE NEW TUSKEGEE EXPERIMENT

    Exclusive: Joseph Farah spotlights U.S. taxpayer-funded research killing African women

    Published: 06/20/2011

    http://www.wnd.com/2011/06/313393/

    For 40 years, the U.S. government funded experiments on hundreds of black men in the late stages of syphilis, withholding treatment, allowing them to go blind, paralytic, insane and die. Only the autopsies of the poor sharecroppers from Alabama were really of interest to the U.S. Public Health Service.
    Today we see that experiment as a moral outrage. Bill Clinton officially apologized for it in 1997.
    Yet the U.S. government remains involved in grisly medical experimentation of this kind in Third World countries on a much grander scale than the Tuskegee experiment.

    Louie Gohmert: Ted Cruz the Candidate ‘With the Most Integrity,’

    Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) cr96% explains why he’s endorsing Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)cr97%, telling Breitbart News Daily host Stephen K. Bannon Cruz consistently fought to stop amnesty during his freshman Senate term.

    “Everything Ted did... was to slow down [Gang of Eight] and hopefully give us a chance to stop the bill that Rubio was now the face of. So that made it easier to endorse Ted. But, you know, Ted’s integrity — you may disagree with him, you may dislike him — but his integrity was his strength. When you’re in the political game, what you’ve got to do is continually attack their strength,” Gohmert said.

    It’s been “hard” to watch GOP frontrunner Donald Trump continuously attack Cruz as a liar, Gohmert said, hinting that retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson also disappointed him when it came to honesty.

    “Seeing Ted attacked, the guy with the most integrity in the presidential race, and that includes Ben Carson — I know Ben, I love his positions. He’s a fellow believer. But I also know different things behind the scenes that have gone on and that’s why I supported Ted.”

  • A Catholic Letter to Pope Francis: Look at the Politicians Whose Faith You Don't Question

    Before leaving on his trip to the Middle, Pope Francis said that he was going to be the Che Guevara to the Palestinian people. For the Pope the mass murderer and executer of hundreds of Cubans was the paramount of Christian values.

    After Francis encounter in Havana with Kyril, head of the Russian Orthodox Church, and Putin’s puppet, the Pope told that Cuba was becoming the world capital of Unity. The Pope was not realizing that he was standing upon the corpses of ten of thousands of Christians murdered by his most admired Cuban Stalinist regime.

    FRANCIS, THE MARXIST LIBERATION POPE

    According to Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Muller, Prefect for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Pope Francis has close ties with liberation theology, the same Discaterio that once condemned the movement. In the 1980s the CDF under then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, attacked liberation theology as borrowing from various currents of Marxist thought and praxis.

    By embracing and supporting Marxist liberation theology Francis has renegade the Magisterium of the Church that condemned Communism as the fatal plague which insinuates itself into the very marrow of the human society only to bring about its ruin, Pope Leo XIII in his Encyclical on Socialism: Quo Apostolici numeris 1878.

    The liberation theology was a creation of the KGB to infiltrate the Christian Churches and had the strongest impact in Latin America by the works of mostly radical Catholic theologians.

    The liberationists made important advances through the World Council of Church and in the United States, mainly through the Maryknolls and the Jesuits and they also had its main beachhead in U.S. on the Mexican American cultural Center located in the San Antonio Seminary sponsored by the Archbishop Patricio Flores. Through its classroom came to teach all the most radical theologians of the Marxist theology of the liberation. Under the pretense of helping the poor, thousands of priests, nuns and lay leaders from United States, Latin America and Philippines were indoctrinated there in the tenets of liberation theology.

    Your theology (Liberation Theology) helps the transformation of Latin America more than millions of books on Marxism, said Fidel Castro to Leonardo Boff and Frei Beto in the presence of the Spanish Bishop in Brazil, Pedro Casáldiga.

    His Holiness, JohnPaul II, with long experience in dealing with the tricks and deviousness of the Communists, put Joseph Ratzinger, the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in charge of confronting the perversion of the Gospels with the inclusion of the class struggle and the main tenets of an ideology condemned as intrinsically evil by H.H. Pius XI en his Encyclical Divini Redemptoris as well as all by the Popes since the end of the 19th century. Ratzinger, later Pope Benedict XVI, published, a decisive document, the Instruction in Certain Aspects of liberation Theology.

    The measures taken by H.H. Pope John Paul II apparently put a stop to the Marxist penetration of the Catholic Church. Nevertheless the sycophancy of the Jesuits for the Cuban regime was kept alive in its classroom organizing Potemkin trips to Cuba for their students and exhibiting propaganda movies exalting a fictitious Che Guevara as in the Che’s Bicycle Diaries.

    Unfortunately, the movement had entered in hibernation and as soon as the Archbishop Bergoglio was elected Pope his first step was to rescue the liberation theology from the dustbin of history under the worn out false pretense of helping the poor, an argument used ad nauseam by the Communists to justify the enslavement of whole nations.

    Francis is the first and only Pope that has been against the Magisterium of the Church on the constant condemnation of communism and opened the doors of the Vatican to the theologians who corrupted the Gospels with the doctrine of Marx. Most importantly, the Pope has backed his words with actions. During his visit to Brazil in 2013, the Pope held meetings with Liberation Theologians on preparing a new doctrine for the church.

    We have to delve deeper in the past of Pope Bergoglio to understand his repudiation of free enterprise and admiration for socialism.

    As stated the expert in Latin America, Anastasia O’Grady: The Holy Father is a native of 20th-century Argentina, ideologically defined by nationalism, socialism, corporatism and anti-Americanism.

    Under Peron’s demagogic populist socialism, Argentina, which enjoyed during the first quarter of the 20th century the strongest economy in this hemisphere, second only to U.S., was put down on its knees by the socialists to never recover again to this day.

    Cesar Vidal, Spanish historian quoted what Bergoglio wrote: In 1998, Archbishop Bergoglio attributed Cuba’s evils not to the communist dictatorship but to which he called the blockade of the United States; later he disparaged against the capitalist system and, finally he affirmed that the political and social system closest to the social doctrine of the catholic church was a socialism like the Cuban whenever the idea of God was added to him.

    That was quite a preposterous example of the Catholic social doctrine made by Bergoglio. Cuba enjoyed the highest standard of living in Latin America and a numerous and prosperous middle class before the revolution, has suffered under Communism a brutal oppression for over 56 years and its standard of living has fallen to the level of misery of Haiti.

    Don’t be surprised by Francis veneration for the monster of la Cabaña, one of the idols of the liberationists, the Argentinean Ernesto Che Guevara. Pope Francis, before going to the Middle East, called himself the Che Guevara of the Palestine people, a flabbergasting affirmation to identify with and to use El Che as model and inspiration, a mass murderer of Cubans, and of Blacks during imperialist wars in Africa at the service of the Soviet Union. While Muslims keep mass murdering Christians, Francis allied himself with the terrorists of the PLO and Hamas recognizing a nonexistent Palestine State.

    Thousands of Cubans murdered by the Communist tyranny while imprisoned and tortured hundreds of thousands of patriots, more than 25,000 Cubans were drowned on the Florida Straits trying to escape from the Communist paradise in makeshift drafts, over one million Cubans forced into Exile in their quest of freedom, didn’t diminish Pope Francis’ admiration for the Cuban Stalinist regime, so much so, that he concocted with comrade Obama a plan to keep afloat the regime prolonging the oppression of the Cuban people while forcing the American taxpayers to play the role of “sugar daddy” of the regime, a role played before by the Soviet Union and later Venezuela that ended with their ruin.

    Recently, Francis, a sycophant of the Cuban communist tyrants, said Cuba has become the world city of unity after his meeting in Havana with Kyril, the head of the Russian Orthodox church and a puppet of Putin. That preposterous assertion by the Pope try to cover up that over 2 million Cubans were forced into exile by the brutal Stalinist regime of the Castro brothers.

    History repeats itself. As H.H Pope Paul VI said on June 29, 1972, it seems that “ From a fissure the smoke of Satan has entered the Temple of God ”.
