Don’t miss my commentary on Obama’s visit to Cuba

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

 

 

Obama’s visit to Cuba has turned out to be a diplomatic disaster. As POTUS he was not greeted at the airport by Raúl Castro– and has been treated with a veiled disdain by the Communist government of Cuba– which doesn’t miss a chance of letting Obama know that it hates America.

YOUR POSITION ON CUBA IS WRONG: Letter to Donald J. Trump from Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Dear Mr. Trump:

My name is Marielena Montesino de Stuart. In 2012 I ran for the United States Senate in Florida (Republican, on the ballot). I am a proud American citizen who came to this country as a political refugee from Cuba, after having suffered horrific persecution under Fidel Castro’s Communist dictatorship. I grew up visiting political prisons in Cuba, where my father and my uncle were held. My uncle became one of the longest held political prisoners in the Western Hemisphere. Other members of my family were tortured, imprisoned and executed. The story of the decimation of my family by Castro’s forces represents the murderous legacy of Fidel Castro– imposed on millions of Cubans for more than 57 years.

Last night during the GOP Debate, you spoke about a “better deal” with Cuba that would allay your concerns over reparation lawsuits being filed against the U.S. by the Communists in Havana. You never mentioned any concern for the freedom of the Cuban people– which is the ONLY legitimate path to fair commerce between Cuba and the United States. Mr.Trump, allow me to point out that the Cuban exiled community, a powerful American voting block, is not concerned, nor fears, farcical reparation lawsuits against the U.S. from the thugs in Havana. We want freedom for the people of Cuba. You cannot “Make America Great Again” if you are willing to do a “better deal” with the Devil next door.

My family and I were exiled in the United States by choice. We never felt there was a better antidote to Communism than the principles of freedom that America stands for. This is in stark contrast with other Cuban exiles who preferred to remain among Eurosocialists and parade down the halls of the United Nations, because they saw the Eurosocialist model as a better alternative to what America had to offer. Most of these former Eurosocialist Cubans had been supporters of Fidel Castro’s revolution and are also responsible for the blood spilled on Cuban soil. Many eventually made their way to America, but only because Eurosocialism hit their pocketbooks hard. They now mostly live in Miami. I am NOT one of them.

It appears that you are on your way to becoming the presidential nominee for the Republican Party. I have observed your triumphant path carefully, and I congratulate you for your courage and perseverance in opposing the corrupt individuals involved in the Republican establishment who are trying to destroy your campaign. I experienced a similar situation when I ran for the U.S. Senate in Florida.

I have also carefully studied your opponents, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. As elected public officials I do not consider their record, their character nor some of their major donors, to be trustworthy, in terms of what is best for America or Cuba. Moreover, the fact that Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are sons of Cuban immigrants who supported Fidel Castro’s “revolution” (NOT political refugees from Communist Cuba) appears to have blurred their vision, since during their time as U.S. Senators they both have honored Nelson Mandela, a well known Communist terrorist, who was also a close friend of Fidel Castro. With this reality in mind, I do not trust any promises or overtures that Cruz and Rubio make to the Cuban diaspora in the United States. For years I have witnessed Cuban-American politicians who take advantage of the trust and suffering of the Cuban exiled community, with empty rhetoric.

To be fair, I have noted that as a private citizen you once had words of admiration for Nelson Mandela– but I can only imagine that this is the result of your lack of understanding of his Communist terrorist activities. Let’s face it, it is not necessary to honor Nelson Mandela, in order to rightfully speak out against the former Apartheid government of South Africa.

The fact that you are self-funding your campaign is extremely important, in order to keep special interest away, and focus on what this country desperately needs, if it is to become once again a moral and economic leader in the world. Furthermore, the fact that such an overwhelming number of Americans have turned out to support your slogan of “Make America Great Again”– speaks to the desperate state that this country is in. It’s called Socialism– which is rising in the shadows of the Eurosocialism that has brought Europe back to an Islamization not seen since the defeat of Muslims at the Gates of Vienna.

As such, you must not ignore the fact that the Communist government of Cuba has not only pursued an aggressive internationalist approach for the spread of Communism, but has been actively engaged as a state sponsor of terrorism, along with Iran, Sudan and Syria, even though  Obama recently removed Cuba from this list, for the sake of “diplomacy.”

Cuba’s involvement as a state sponsor of terrorism has been evident for several decades.

During the Yom Kippur War (aka the 1973 Arab-Israeli War) Fidel Castro’s government sent 4,000 troops to prevent Israeli forces from entering Syrian territory— while Benjamin Netanyahu, the current Prime Minister of Israel, was leading a commando team deep in the Syrian territory.

On another front, during Operation Entebbe in July 1976, commandos of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) conducted a high-risk operation at Entebbe Airport in Uganda, in order to rescue over 100 Israeli citizens and Jewish passengers of various nationalities who were being held hostage at Entebbe Airport by hijackers of an Air France plane. These terrorists had received training in South Yemen at camps supported and staffed with 1,500 Soviets, 700 Cubans and 116 East Germans.

When the terrorists took control of the Air France plane, they announced that they were under the leadership of none other than the “Che Guevara Group and Gaza Unit of the Popular Front of the Liberation of Palestine.” I’m sure you know that Che Guevara was one of Fidel Castro’s closest henchmen, responsible for the execution of thousands of innocent Cubans.  Che Guevara’s long trail of blood has earned him the reputation as one of the most vicious and ruthless Communists in history.

As you can see, Cuba’s Marxist-terrorist influence reaches far across the globe.

Today, the Communist government of Cuba remains the dagger in the heart of the Western Hemisphere, with powerful tentacles that advance their nefarious agenda through socialist nation-building (as in Venezuela) and through the agenda of the São Paulo Forum, whose sole purpose is to destroy America. Please do not ignore this important fact.

Indeed, Cuba’s Communist government represents a sociopolitical threat to the United States of America. Cuba’s government is only interested in “deals” that benefit their murderous Communist dictatorship– and the international advancement of their interests. Cuban government officials made this very clear, even before the American flag was raised during the reopening of the U.S. Embassy in Havana. The belligerence of the Cuban government against any sign of democracy or freedom for the Cuban people remains intact.

Cuba is also a threat to the United States, in terms of immigration, specifically through the flood of Cubans pouring in through the border with Mexico. This should concern you, since the issue of immigration is, after all, what catapulted your campaign into success. These new Cuban arrivals see Barack Obama’s deal with Cuba as a chokehold on their freedom, because Obama’s “diplomacy” represents a cowardly legitimization of the Communist dictatorship of Cuba, after 57 years of oppression. The numbers of Cubans fleeing the island since Obama’s one-way diplomacy was enacted has increased exponentially, and the oppression and persecution of the Cuban people under their Communist dictatorship is the same, or worse.

Mr. Trump, you are a very successful businessman, and your life is centered on making “deals.” You have said that “deals are people.” If you are to remain consistent, I am asking that you reconsider your position on Cuba. Any “deal” that you do with the Communists in Havana will affect the people of Cuba. Consequently, I was particularly disheartened by your perfunctory statement last night during the GOP Debate held at the University of Miami: “… fifty years is enough time, folks–referring to U.S. laws that have been in place to exert (at least) minimal pressure on the Communist government of Cuba. Your statement was not just offensive to those of us who suffered under Communism in Cuba– but it shows that you need help in understanding that there’s no “better deal” to be made with the Communists in Havana.

Furthermore, consider this scenario: would you say to survivors of the Jewish Holocaust that “Seventy one years is enough time, folks”? No, you would not– because such a statement would be inconsiderate and disrespectful. We, the survivors of Cuba’s murderous Communist regime, who have been loyal to America, deserve the same respect and consideration.

Based on the above scenario, and knowing that your forte is the issue of trade and “deals,” I respectfully propose that in your effort to do away with, or rewrite the trade deals that are choking the American economy, that you include a clause which will severely punish those so-called “friends” of the U.S. who continue to trade and do business with the Communist government of Cuba. Now, that’s a deal that will effectively work to help bring freedom to the Cuban people, through an economic stranglehold on the thugs in Havana– just like it was done in South Africa against the Apartheid government. This will quickly end the suffering of the Cuban people and will bring the freedom needed for the establishment of legitimate diplomacy and trade. You can become the man who brings down the Communist government of Cuba, without shooting a single bullet. What a legacy! If you’re willing to take on China in trade, it should be easy for you to take on Cuba and its trading partners.

Dr. Ben Carson, who endorsed you this morning, said that you are not intolerant to change. I believe that this is true and that if you surround yourself with virtuous people who can guide you in critical matters, such as Cuba, you can become a successful leader.

We all know that you have evolved through the years on several areas, including abortion– and that you are open to the process of evolving further, based on the goodness in you to do what is moral and just in defense of the innocent. You recently said that there’s no sense in keeping a position that is wrong. This supports your famous quote: “Watch, listen, and learn. You can’t know it all yourself. Anyone who thinks they do is destined for mediocrity.”

I respectfully ask that you carefully consider the above facts, and that you urgently present a strong, sincere and trustworthy position against Cuba’s Communist government, before the Florida Primary on Tuesday, March 15.

I remain sincerely,

Marielena Montesino de Stuart

THE 2016 RACE FOR THE WHITE HOUSE: Are Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio the “New Conservatives”?

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Let’s examine this new breed of “conservatives” running for POTUS.

The following is an important excerpt from an article I published on December 10, 2013. It should be of great interest to my readers as they ponder the 2016 U.S. presidential election:

The New World Order that we live under—famously lauded by Republican U.S. President, George Herbert Walker Bush, has indeed grown deep roots in the minds of people all over the world. So much so, that religious leaders, politicians and monarchs who claim to care for the plight of the poor, have either issued statements (as in the Vatican’s statement issued by Francis) or have arrived in Johannesburg for Nelson Mandela’s memorial service, claiming to honor Mandela—a man who shamelessly admired Fidel Castro’s brutal Communist dictatorship, clearly stated as follows:

“From its earliest days, the Cuban Revolution has also been a source of inspiration to all freedom-loving people. We admire the sacrifices of the Cuban people in maintaining their independence and sovereignty in the face of the vicious imperialist-orchestrated campaign to destroy the impressive gain made in the Cuban Revolution… Long live the Cuban Revolution. Long live comrade Fidel Castro.”—Nelson Mandela, July 26, 1991, Cuba

Nelson Mandela and Fidel Castro
Nelson Mandela and Fidel Castro

Another participant in the Mandela memorial service, who shocked many (except for me) was none other than U.S. Senator Ted Cruz from Texas, who issued the following statement, before traveling to Johannesburg:

“Nelson Mandela will live in history as an inspiration for defenders of liberty around the globe. He stood firm for decades on the principle that until all South Africans enjoyed equal liberties he would not leave prison himself, declaring in his autobiography, ‘Freedom is indivisible; the chains on any one of my people were the chains on all of them, the chains on all of my people were the chains on me.’ Because of his epic fight against injustice, an entire nation is now free. 

“We mourn his loss and offer our condolences to his family and the people of South Africa.” — U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (Republican-Texas) – December 5, 2013

Ted Cruz has chosen to ignore Mandela’s admitted terrorist past as a Communist.  Cruz has also chosen to ignore the fact that Mandela institutionalized unfettered abortion in South Africa– and that he single-handedly turned South Africa into a nation with some the most liberal laws on earth.

Based on Cruz’ public statement of admiration for Mandela and his decision to participate in the Mandela memorial event, is it possible that Senator Ted Cruz still harbors admiration for his own father’s participation as a pro-Castro revolutionary activist?  “’He was a guerilla, throwing Molotov cocktails and blowing up buildings,‘ Ted Cruz told the Austin American-Statesman [about his father] for a profile published in January 2006,” according to The Dallas Morning News (October 25, 2011).

How else are we to explain Ted Cruz’ statement honoring Mandela– and his subsequent pilgrimage to South Africa to be at the memorial?

This two-sided political approach is very common in the Cuban exiled community and among those of Cuban descent, who often view their parents’ former socialist pro-Castro activism with starry-eyed idealism, while they also denounce Castro. This inconsistent political behavior is precisely what has divided the Cuban exiled community for more than 50 years.

As I said above, Ted Cruz’ participation in Nelson Mandela’s memorial and his written statement did not take me by surprise. Ted Cruz wants to have it both ways, but principled conservatives do not behave this way.

In what appears to be an obvious attempt to defuse the criticisms he has been receiving, Ted Cruz “walked out” when Raúl Castro was delivering his speech at the Mandela memorial. Too little, too late.

Another admirer of Nelson Mandela is U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, also of Cuban descent. Marco Rubio’s ambiguous account of his family’s return to Cuba afterCastro’s takeover in January 1959, continues to raise questions and eyebrows– considering that the executions of hundreds of innocent Cubans began immediately in 1959, in the fortress of La Cabaña. In addition, it was well known that hundreds of innocent farmers and civilians had been executed throughout the island by Castro and his band of Marxist thugs during their terrorist “revolution.” By 1960 all American businesses in Cuba had been nationalized without compensation– and the United States had broken off diplomatic relations with Havana.

Given these conditions, why did Marco Rubio’s parents leave the United States and return to Cuba to live under Castro?

Although Senator Marco Rubio did not travel to Johannesburg for Mandela’s memorial, his admiration for Nelson Mandela shows that Senator Marco Rubio and Senator Ted Cruz suffer from the same malady of political inconsistency. Much has changed with Rubio since he ran for the U.S. Senate.  Here is Marco Rubio’s statement paying homage to Mandela:

“The world has lost one of history’s most important figures, though Nelson Mandela’s example will live on for generations to come. Men and women striving for justice and fairness around the world have drawn inspiration from Nelson Mandela, and he showed South Africans and the entire world what the power of forgiveness truly means and can accomplish. My wife Jeanette and I send our condolences to the Mandela family and to the people of South Africa.” — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (Republican-Florida) December 5, 2013.

Nelson Mandela and Communism

Nelson Mandela was not a political prisoner. He was imprisoned for espousing violent activities through the Umkhonto we Sizwe (abbreviated MK)– a terrorist organization which he co-founded, as the “armed” wing of the African National Congress (ANC).

During his trial Nelson Mandela pleaded guilty to 156 acts of public violence, which included organizing terrorist bombing campaigns. Scores of innocent people, both black and white, were killed by Nelson Mandela’s Umkhonto we Sizwe terrorists, including women and children. In any other country Nelson Mandela would have been sentenced to death, or would have spent life in prison. Yet, he enjoyed communication privileges unheard of, for a prisoner with such a criminal record.

As such, even Amnesty International, which is well known for its progressive side, would not take on Mandela’s case, since he was not a political prisoner (“prisoner of conscience”). In addition, pursuant to Amnesty International’s criterion, a “prisoner of conscience” must not have used nor advocated violence.

As cruel and abominable as apartheid was, Mandela’s legacy of terrorist violence and support of murderous Communist dictatorships cannot be justified

By the time Mandela came out of prison and became President of South Africa he had given up on the idea of full-blown communism, given that he would not receive aid from the Soviet Union, which had recently collapsed.

Cuba’s communism, which Mandela so admired, was his scariest example of a communist country starving after its long dependence on the Soviet Union.  However, the communists from the former Communist bloc resurfaced through Sustainable Development (Agenda 21)– which is the United Nations socialist global initiative.  The operatives of Agenda 21 have worked tirelessly in Africa to advance socialism– in ways that the Soviet Union could not achieve.  Socialist politicians all over the world, including Mandela, have advanced their causes with the help of Sustainable Development, much more than they ever could with the help of the Soviets.

While Nelson Mandela praised Fidel Castro’s Communist dictatorship, the Strait of Florida had already become a cemetery for untold hundreds of thousands of Cubans who had drowned trying to escape.  This does not include the untold number executed by Castro’s government forces.  After nearly 55 years of Castro’s Communist dictatorship, the human loss has become one of the worst catastrophes recorded in modern history.  But New World Order religious leaders, politicians and monarchs do not feel it is in their best interest to demand that the Communist dagger be removed from the heart of the Cuban people…

Political correctness is not truth

Political correctness is not truth. Political correctness is a selfish feel-good malady.

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Espresso with Marielena… (quick reflections while I sip my cup of coffee)

ESPRESSO WITH MARIELENA... Copyright © Marielena Montesino de Stuart. All rights reserved.Don’t forget that socialists (so-called “progressives”) lead the charge for political correctness when it comes to how humanity is supposed to react to the violence perpetrated by Islamic extremists.

Examine closely the Islamization of Europe and who are the politicians behind it. 

Also, examine closely who has (for decades!) aided and supported states sponsors of terrorism, like Cuba– which until Obama’s recent “diplomacy” was listed as a state sponsor of terrorism by the State Dept., in Washington DC. Specifically, the State Department determined that Cuba had “repeatedly provided support for acts of international terrorism”– along with Iran, Syria and Sudan.

Must read… EVIL BEGETS EVIL: Terrorism seen through the eyes of a Cuban

It is also critical that we remain aware of fake conservatives, who suffer from this political-correctness malady. Authentic conservatives who truly love their fellow man DO NOT practice political correctness.

As Christians, we are called to love– but this does not mean that we must succumb to social myopia, which blurs our sacred obligation to help innocent members of society.

Help your fellow man, by not giving in to political correctness. The most powerful weapon against evil is the truth– when it is spoken with decency, dignity and facts!
