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

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…

My Authentic Pro-life View of the August 6, 2015 GOP Debate

Marielena Montesino de StuartBy Marielena Montesino de Stuart

THIS POST IS NOT AN ENDORSEMENT OF ANY CANDIDATE

It’s amazing how things can radically change in just three years.

You see, three years ago, when I was on the ballot in Florida as a Republican Candidate for the United States Senate I was considered too “radical” by the Republican establishment for my authentic pro-life view– which means I make no exceptions for the life of the mother, rape or incest. I supported my position with solid and irrefutable scientific and moral evidence– but the overwhelming majority of Republican voters would not listen– because when it comes to the defense of the unborn they believe that they have the right to choose who gets to live and who gets to die.

This exceptions position, dear readers, is what has led to the erosion of what it means to be authentically prolife.

This exceptions position, dear readers, is what has led to the death camps at Planned Parenthood.

The exceptions position is what the Nazis (remember the Nazis were Socialists) carried out in their death camps– and it is what Communists continue to practice in countries like Cuba, China, Vietnam, Laos, North Korea– and everywhere the United Nations (a socialist entity) has a presence– which unfortunately is everywhere in the world.

But last night I saw a miracle happen! Candidates like Marco Rubio, who was known to espouse exceptions on abortion– backed away from that position when Fox news anchor Megyn Kelly confronted him with the question.

I was also pleasantly surprised to hear Scott Walker defend his “no exceptions” position on abortion.  I would like to know how long Scott Walker has held this view– because I would not have felt so alone with my “no exceptions” position during my candidacy for the U.S. Senate in 2012! I don’t remember Scott Walker openly discussing his “no exceptions” position during his gubernatorial run in 2012. 

Now, if only Scott Walker could be as principled when it comes to Communist China– given his record for rolling out the red carpet for Chinese investors on U.S. soil– together with George W. Bush, Rick Scott and Rick Perry. There are others in the Republican Party who also kiss up to the Communists in Beijing.  And let’s not forget that China is a blood bath of abortion and human organ trafficking.

I would also have liked to hear Dr. Ben Carson speak about the no exceptions on abortion issue– particularly because he is a medical doctor and neurosurgeon. Dr. Carson’s website does not clarify if he does or does not believe in these exceptions. Why was he not confronted with this issue last night, I ask.

The above scenario begs the following question:

Are candidates like Marco Rubio and Scott Walker now expressing a “no exceptions” position on abortion as a result of the undercover Planned Parenthood videos? Is this about political expediency?

Here is an example of my authentic and principled pro-life position– as presented during my campaign for the United States Senate in 2012, published as a Press Release titled, A TAKE-NO-PRISONERS APPROACH: A Lesson for the Florida Family Policy Council.
