EVIL BEGETS EVIL: Terrorism seen through the eyes of a Cuban

Doing business with the Devil

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

“… how can the international community do business for more than 50 years with Castro’s communist pro-terrorism regime?  Cuba has supported the most violent Islamic terrorists in the world, and until Obama’s recent “diplomacy,” Cuba 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.

REALITY vs. DREAM: The danger of doing business with Cuba

I have been writing about the repugnant tourism trade with Cuba (under the control of the Castro Communist military dictatorship).  Many Americans have participated in Cuban tourism, both illegally and now “legally” under Obama’s new Cuba Policy. This includes participating in Cuba’s notorious sexual tourism.

Adding insult to injury, there are many American business owners (painfully, this includes some Cubans residing in the U.S. who fled Castro’s dictatorship decades ago!) who now want to benefit financially by doing business with the communists in Havana– while Cubans are arrested, tortured and imprisoned for peacefully denouncing their despotic oppressors. Click on screen caption of Council of the Americas to read a document titled, Open Letter to President Obama: Support for a New Course on Cuba. You’ll be amazed to see some of the Cuban-Americans as well as Republicans who signed it!

Fortunately, there are still voices of reason in the business community who have warned others about the perils of doing business with communists:

Cubans desperately flee their communist island prison

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Tourism ads are appearing on television in an attempt to lure visitors to Cuba, the communist island prison. Meanwhile, Cubans are desperately trying to flee, through any means possible.

Besides the political repression and hunger brought about by the Castro Communist military regime, Cubans are also afraid that the Cuban Adjustment Act, which may facilitate a speedy legal entrance to the United States, could soon come to an end under Obama’s “diplomacy” and love affair with the communists in Havana.

It is both astounding and repulsive to watch the contrast between the tourism ads and the cruel reality of the Cuban people.

Here is the latest report from Pew Research, which shows a 78% increase in Cubans entering the United States this year:

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO ALL U.S. PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES: There’s no such thing as a deal with Communist Cuba

Communists lie. Communists cheat. Communists steal.

(With a commentary on the Pensacola Yacht Club Race to Havana)

In the past few weeks we witnessed Barack Obama humiliating the American and the Cuban people by establishing diplomatic relations with Communist Cuba, and raising the venerable flag of the United States of America in Havana. My commentary titled “AN ACT OF COWARDICE: U.S. Diplomatic Relations with Communist Cuba” amplifies my opinion on this matter.

Presidential candidates in the United States must not mislead the American public into the assumption that Obama’s so-called “diplomacy” with the Marxist Castro brothers can be maintained and improved under a new administration.

There’s no such thing as diplomacy with communists. Communists do not believe in diplomacy. They lie. They cheat. They steal.

Communists only believe in absolute control and oppression of the people they rule. Communism is the most dangerous form of extremism in modern times—because of its long-running, pervasive and persistent nature. Our fight to eradicate Islamic extremism, in all its horrific and dangerous forms, is actually a feasible intelligence and military endeavor in the hands of a competent U.S. President. But the fight to eradicate communism will take generations. Over 120 million people have died worldwide at the hands of communists and their fellow travelers. The numbers continue to rise.

Communists in Cuba will take advantage of U.S. government aid (as they have for years) which is provided by the American taxpayer—and they will not change a single aspect of their despotic practices. In fact, within hours of Obama raising our stars and stripes on Cuban soil, the head of the Cuban “diplomatic” delegation, Josefina Vidal, stated that the Cuban government would not change “one iota” of its policies.

Straight from the communist horse’s mouth

 U.S. presidential candidates need to open their eyes and read the statements coming out of Cuba. For example, here is an excerpt of a report published on May 26, 2015 in Granma, which is Cuba’s publication for communist propaganda under the control of the government in Havana– specifically identified as “the official voice of the Communist Party of Cuba Central Committee.”

The report features statements made by Vidal. Bold added for emphasis:

“It seemed strange to me, at the closing of the 7th Summit of the Americas in Panama, to hear President Obama, during his press conference, say that the purpose of U.S. policy, in the case of Cuba, was not regime change.

 Therefore, we hope that as we advance in the process toward normalization of relations, we will see a better match between this type of statement and real life.

 Real life tells us that they are still requesting multi-million dollar funding to sustain these types of programs which Cuba considers illegal, since they are programs directed toward provoking change within our country, and which, at the same time, are being attempted without any sort of consent from authorities or the Cuban government.”

Sadly, many Americans (as well as many Cubans who have claimed political asylum in the United States) are pouring into Cuba as tourists. Cruise lines are offering vacation packages. The Pensacola Yacht Club sailed yesterday with a flotilla of cruiser sailboats towards Cuba—where they will be warmly welcomed by a contingency of communists who will undoubtedly offer them Cuban drinks, in exchange for free propaganda. The Pensacola Yacht Club even had the audacity of providing an information link to a website that promotes tourism to this tragic island controlled by tyrants. See reference section below.

The hubris of those involved in the U.S.-Cuba tourism and cultural “exchange” industries and organizations is absolutely immoral—and an insult to humanity, when one considers the hunger, lack of basic human services, oppression, torture, imprisonment and “disappearance” of Cubans who dare to express their opposition to their despotic communist military government—while these ignorant yachting and tourism enthusiasts arrive on the shores of the island prison!

No. There’s no way to “deal” with the murderers in the Communist Cuban government. The only deal that could ever work is an offer they can’t refuse.

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

The United States-Cuba diplomatic hoax

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Espresso with Marielena… a jolt of truth

ESPRESSO WITH MARIELENA... Copyright © Marielena Montesino de Stuart. All rights reserved.Things continue to deteriorate in Cuba. Pew Research has recently reported that the number of Cubans trying to make it into the United States has increased exponentially since Obama warmly embraced the Communist Cuban regime. At the center of this surge is the fear that the friendly relations between the United States and Cuba will bring to an end the Cuban Adjustment Act.

Frankly speaking, the Cuban Adjustment Act has been in need of a strong readjustment for quite some time– in order to stop the mockery being made of the political refugee status granted under this act. You see, nowadays it is common to see the new wave of Cuban “refugees” returning to vacation in Cuba. Now, ask yourselves, how do you vacation in a country that you fled because of political oppression? This is an insult to those of us who left Cuba many years ago as legitimate political refugees, with an unwavering conviction to never set foot in Cuba unless it is a free country– without communism or any tinge of socialism. As such, we have suffered for decades, never seeing again the family members who stayed behind, while we continue to denounce the barbarism of the Castro brothers and their oppression of the Cuban people.

During my campaign for the United States Senate in 2012 (Republican, on the ballot FL) I emphasized that in order to take Cuba back from the grips of communism, we had to save the United States first. Sadly, the same oppressive socialist grip is now quickly tightening around the neck of the United States. But in a world that has turned socialist, through Sustainable Development policies enforced more and more everywhere we turn, there’s little hope that the U.S. can be turned around, unless someone with guts and a moral backbone enters the White House. Someone who despises communism– because in every region where terrorism rears its ugly head, you will find China, quietly standing by on the sidelines, as our political and economic opponent– waiting to expand its presence and control of the region through Sustainable Development schemes.

Yes, Islamic extremism is a great threat– but at the end of the day, communism remains our greatest enemy. As such, I continue to keep my eyes on China. Are you?
