KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE BALL: An Urgent Message from Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Our country has descended into a socialist abyss of immorality which is destroying society from every angle. This dangerous descent is rooted in laws which go against our basic humanity– by supporting the murder of babies through abortion and through the abandonment of marriage between one man and one woman as the only natural union for the continuation of humanity. What follows from the aforementioned chaos is complete economic disorder and confusion– because the basic foundations of a healthy society, traditional marriage and value for human life are missing.

One example of this chaos is the much-discussed crisis in our Social Security system. Yet, American legislators choose to omit from their discourse one fundamental truth: we have lost millions of contributors to the Social Security program because they were not allowed to live. So many in fact, that since Roe vs. Wade the death of Americans through abortion exceeds the population of Great Britain.

This chaos is pervasive and persistent. It’s called Communism.

This chaos is evident through the nefarious effect of United Nations socialist policies involving population control in African nations and in areas of the world that do not even meet a population growth that would ensure the continuation of their societies and cultures.

This chaos is evident in the crisis of the Middle East– and how China is standing by, watching the Middle East fall apart, in order to reap the benefits of a “sustainable development” region that they can control economically. In fact, this is already happening with China’s economic presence on the banks of the ancient Nile and sub-Saharan Africa– and throughout the Middle East region.

Frankly speaking, Communist China is everywhere– and it is relentless in its agenda to control energy sources, and in its determination to be a major “stakeholder” (a globalist term) in the internal facilities that make business activity possible, such as communication, transportation, and distribution networks, financial institutions and markets, and energy supply systems.

The bottom line is this: we are fighting a war on many different places– but the enemy fueling these wars is one: COMMUNISM.

As such, I am respectfully asking my readers to be extremely careful about being drawn into conspiracy theories, which only serve to confuse and isolate the individual from the clear objective: to combat Communism wherever it is– which today has metamorphosed dangerously into programs that exist right under our noses, on a local, state and federal level. It is the responsibility of every freedom-loving individual to learn to identify these dangerous Communist programs– through facts, NOT through conspiracy theories and theorists who will drain your precious time and create even more confusion.

If you allow yourselves to become part of conspiracy theories you will only help bring about the Leninist-Marxist dream of converging the right and the left. I see this already happening to an alarming degree when individuals who identify themselves as “conservatives” promote those who are Marxists, simply because they identify with one of the theorist’s “causes.”

Keep your eyes on the ball. Communism is humanity’s biggest enemy. Over 120 million lives have been lost at the hands of communist regimes in different parts of the world. By fighting against Communism, you will fight against Islamic extremism and totalitarian regimes who all receive support from the Communists at the United Nations.

Keep your eyes on the ball.

Don’t miss “Mitt Romney is the Reversible Man– the Republican Party in Free Fall

This week in review

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

The GOP Debate in Detroit: Not a word about Abortion

Another long debate with so much acting-out and little or no substance. Another show for network ratings and profits– and not a word about the defense of innocent human life. A nation that elects a leader who does not place the defense of innocent and defenseless human life above all– is a nation which has sold its future to materialistic atheism.

Censored in China


He had grown accustomed to the perks that come with being a powerful property tycoon who plays according to the Communist Party rules– that is until his fingers got too happy on the keyboard.

Ren Zhiqiang had over 30 million followers on his microblogging account. But everything came to a screeching halt when he criticized Xi Jinping, the President of Communist China. Mr. Ren asked for state media to serve the people of China- who, after all, are the ones who pay for it. Beijing’s government immediately took action to censor and shut down his account and issued statements accusing Mr. Ren of subversive activities against the government.

The BBC reports:

The Cyberspace Administration of China accused Mr. Ren of publishing “illegal messages that had a bad impact.”

As a Communist dictatorship, China maintains very strict Internet regulations– which include blocking major websites and censorship of posts by audacious bloggers. China’s censorship program is massive– given the fact that China represents the largest online population in the world.

China has issued new rules, which will take effect on March 10, banning foreign media and foreign joint ventures from posting content online without the blessing of Communist Party officials. The BBC’s English language website has been blocked in the past across China. On October 15, 2014, BBC Global News director, Peter Horrocks said it appeared to be “deliberate censorship,” on a BBC article titled “BBC’s website is being blocked across China.”

With this scenario in mind, I am not surprised that BBC’s China Editor, Carrie Gracie, is currently taking “long service leave” from China until the summer, and has returned to the U.K. Here’s an excerpt that appeared in The Guardian (28 February, 2016, titled: BBC’s Carrie Gracie: ‘China is difficult– a giant piece of history rising’)

China’s political situation worries her greatly. “The level of oppression, Orwellian security is very serious,” she says. “I feel perhaps I need to ratchet up the coverage over some of the sombre truths.

Last summer, some Hong Kong booksellers disappeared– and journalists are under constant threat. Lawyers are being imprisoned (but I must admit that the idea of trying to practice “law” under a Communist dictatorship is baffling!).

Xi Jinping is turning out to be Mao in a suit and tie. His reign of terror is driving underground just about anyone who opposes him. Or they leave China, before it’s too late.

Obama’s failures in Iraq keep mounting

More death and destruction took place today in Baghdad. The New York Times has issued the following report– which confirms Obama’s failure in that region:

BAGHDAD — Militants attacked an outdoor market on Sunday in eastern Baghdad, killing at least 59 people and wounding nearly 100, officials said.

A bomb ripped through the crowded Mredi market in the Shiite district of Sadr City, a police officer said. Minutes later, a suicide bomber blew himself up amid the crowd that had gathered at the site of the first bombing, he added.

Interior Ministry spokesman Sad Main said the bombings killed 38 people and wounded another 62.

Multiple hospital officials later increased the casualty toll to 59 dead and 95 wounded. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to release information.

The attack was the deadliest in a wave of recent explosions that have targeted commercial areas in and outside Baghdad.

Obama’s approach of leading from behind has failed. The military experts that he sent to the area a few months ago do not appear to have the situation under control– and the ISIS bloody footprint in Baghdad, as the capital of Iraq, will be very difficult to remove. The new POTUS in 2017 will have to do a major overhaul of our Middle East policy.

Cuba matters


As someone who suffered under the bloody Communist dictatorship of Fidel Castro, I am deeply concerned about the lack of interest in discussing the plight of the Cuban people  during the Republican presidential debates. There has also been little or no discussion of Obama’s one-way diplomacy with Cuba. This silence about Cuba, on the part of the candidates, extends to their time on the campaign trail. Two of the candidates for POTUS, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, are sons of Cuban immigrants. What’s going on?

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

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…

Speaking as a former political refugee…

Speaking as a former political refugee, the United Nations has failed in its structural integration of humanity as a dominant socialist utopia.

Most (if not all) of the refugee camps in Europe are relying on private organizations to rescue and keep refugees / migrants alive.

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

I came to this country as a political refugee from Cuba after suffering horrendous persecution under Castro’s Communist regime. Members of my family were imprisoned, tortured and executed. Growing up under the despotic military dictatorship of Fidel Castro led to my experience as a political refugee in the United States.

There is no way to compare the current situation of the refugee crisis overwhelming Europe with the Refugee child in Grande Synthe Refugee Camp in Francerefugee program that embraced my family and I in the United States. Even though it is well known that Cuban spies infiltrated the Cuban political refugee program at the time that my asylum took place (they still do!)– it is also evident that Cuban refugees were not attacking American citizens on our own soil in acts of violence representing the Castro regime.

Having said this, I’d like to address the truth about the ineptitude and farcical nature of the United Nations vis-à-vis the refugee / migrant crisis in Europe: it is patently clear that the United Nations has failed again. After all, most (if not all) of the refugee camps in Europe are relying on private organizations to rescue and keep refugees / migrants alive.

CLICK TO ENLARGE – “UN ‘broke and failing’ in face of ever-growing refugee crisis” – Screen caption from The Guardian – 6 September 2015

After so many treaties, proclamations, expressions of indignation and empty rhetoric– where is the United Nations when you need them? Why aren’t they creating safe zones overseen by their representatives wearing their little blue berets in the war-torn regions of the Middle East, so that refugees can remain in their homelands?  What’s happening with the obscene amount of taxpayer money that the United States gives annually to the United Nations? Why is it that the United Nations, as the most powerful socialist entity in the world, is incapable of creating safe zones for these refugees?

Is it that the UN member countries do not want to cooperate?

Is it that when it comes to human rights– the biggest chunk of the money is going to population control and the undermining of traditional marriage and family in places like Sub-Saharan Africa, which for the most part vehemently rejects this type of UN agenda?

What about all the international treaties that were supposed to kick into place during a catastrophic human crisis– such as the one Europe faces with the refugees / migrants?

The truth is that the United Nations has failed in its structural integration of humanity as a dominant socialist utopia. It is also true that ethnic identification, socioeconomic status, religious and political background are extremely difficult to assess at check points flooded with thousands of persons who may be carrying false documents– or none at all. But isn’t this what the United Nations was supposed to solve? After all, these socialists operate under the name “United Nations”!

It is a fact that European countries and the United States do not have in place a hierarchic system of geographical, statistical and demographic data that can address the current refugee / migrant crisis from the Middle East, in order to ensure the safety of the citizens of host countries.

In contrast to the scenario of the Middle Eastern refugees, I came to this country as a political refugee from Cuba as part of a cohesive group that shared a common identity. We were anti-communists who wanted to assimilate into American society as productive and peaceful citizens. This is not the case with the current refugees / migrants, among which are those who support Sharia Law and other customs that are incompatible with the Commandments of God and the Natural Law– which are the basis of Western Civilization.

Tragically, the Christians of the Middle East, whose values are based on the Commandments of God and the Natural Law, are being beheaded and exterminated while politicians in Washington DC and in the United Nations worry about those who believe in Sharia Law!

Yes, I’m sure that some (or many) of these refugees / migrants are Muslims fleeing Islamic extremism– but there is an undeniable fact: by identifying as Muslims they are directly or indirectly (depending on the degree of their fervor) supporting Islamic law, which is Sharia Law– as the framework within which public policies and some private aspects of life are regulated for those living in a legal system based on Islam. No degree of political correctness can hide this!

This leads to the following question: why is it that the United Nations has failed to convince its Muslim members / leaders that Sharia Law is incompatible with the UN’s socialist utopia?

My heart goes out to the little children who desperately need to be rescued– and are caught in the violence of the Middle East and other regions where Islamic extremism is prevailing. It is time to put pressure on inept political leaders so that truly innocent people can be saved during this crisis.

The only safe solution, both for authentic refugees and the citizens of countries under pressure to host them, is the creation of safe zones in the refugees’ countries of origin.  But this requires true leadership– not romantic political correctness.

It’s time to lift the fog… someone has to say the truth.

UNESCO fails to protect Palmyra as a World Heritage Site

Does UNESCO have a pro-Islamic agenda?  Let’s examine the events in Palmyra and the Roman Catholic Cathedral of Córdoba, Spain.

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Palmyra, the Grande Colonnade


Who needs UNESCO? — which stands for United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.

The recent beheading of Khaled al-Asaad, a renowned antiquities scholar in Syria is yet another heartbreaking loss of an innocent life taken by ISIS. Khaled al-Asaad had devoted his life to the preservation of Palmyra, in Syria. His brutal execution, while trying to protect precious antiquities, was followed by the news of the destruction of this ancient archeological site, at the hands of ISIS jihadists.

What is also disturbing is that archeological locations like Palmyra, known as the ‘Venice of the Sands’– have been declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO– one of the many international organizations that are part of the United Nations. But where are the folks at UNESCO when you need them?

UNESCO is supposed to help operate and oversee the protection of its World Heritage Sites, pursuant to a document titled, Operational Guidelines for the Implementation of the World Heritage Convention. This document outlines all the steps required for the operational status and protection of these sites. But UNESCO,  like most socialist programs run by the United Nations, failed to protect Palmyra, one of its most treasured sites.  So much for its “World Heritage Convention.”

The Roman Catholic Cathedral of Córdoba

Roman Catholic Cathedral of Córdoba

This brings me to another site, which is in danger of being turned into a “shared space” for Islamic prayer: the Cathedral of Córdoba, Spain. This treasure of Christianity is another World Heritage Site which is struggling to retain its Roman Catholic authenticity and sacred value.

The protection of the Roman Catholic heritage of this cathedral depends on the measures taken by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Córdoba — and not on UNESCO’s so-called “protection”– since UNESCO is more interested in the “world”– than it is in the authentic Roman Catholic identity of the cathedral.

In fact, in the UNESCO’s World Heritage List, the Cathedral of Córdoba is listed as the “Mosque of Córdoba.”  See item 22 under Spain (Historic Center of Córdoba) and in “Notes.”  This is because UNESCO refuses to acknowledge that the original site was a Roman Catholic Church which was desecrated and usurped by the Moors, and turned into a Mosque during their occupation of Spain.

Which brings us to the main question: does UNESCO have a pro-Islamic agenda? Hmm…

I am also including below an article about the history of the Cathedral of Córdoba, for the benefit of my readers.

Personally, I don’t see the purpose of  turning a nation’s historic site into a UNESCO “World Heritage” site– when UNESCO and the United Nations are unable to protect them with their “peacekeeping” forces– nor through any measures taken by the farcical United Nations Security Council– which currently includes non-permanent members such as Venezuela— and in the past even Cuba! There isn’t a rogue state in this world that the United Nations and its minions haven’t embraced.

While ISIS plowed through the Syrian desert– brutally murdering innocent people and destroying everything in sight, the UNESCO World Heritage Committee was holding a session in Bonn in July of this year, where they issued the following charming Bonn Declaration— which I’m sure ISIS jihadists are respectfully perusing! 

It is my opinion that UNESCO is speaking out of both sides of its mouth. On one hand it is issuing “declarations” condemning what ISIS is doing in the name of Islam— but on the other hand they are refusing to acknowledge the true Roman Catholic identity of the Cathedral of Córdoba, by calling it the “Mosque of Córdoba.”

There is an ancient Chinese proverb that says, “if we don’t change our direction, we’re likely to end up where we’re headed.” We are heading straight into hell, and without strong moral leadership in Washington not only will more innocent people die– but the world’s cultural patrimony will disappear along with Western Civilization— while politically correct / socialist entities like the United Nations UNESCO gather in their well-appointed boardrooms issuing declarations.

Khaled al-Asaad died alone, beheaded. His body was hung upside down from a column. He died in Palmyra protecting the antiquities that he loved– but where was UNESCO?

It’s time to lift the fog… someone has to say the truth.
