When Fidel Castro recently slammed Arizona’s SB 1070 as “a brutal violation of human rights,” few Cuba-watchers in our media took notice.
Half a century into the reign of the Communist status quo, the crooning duets between Cuba’s Stalinist dictator and the Democratic/mainstream media axis are far too routine to inspire serious commentary. These duets have been around since Castro appeared on the scene. And comparatively, the performances by Diana Ross and Lionel Ritchie, and even Sonny and Cher appear pathetically clumsy and out-of-tune. To wit:
“I am not a Communist and Communists have absolutely no influence within my regime.” (Fidel Castro, May, 1959)
“Fidel Castro is not only not a Communist, he is decidedly anti-Communist. In Cuba there are no Communists in positions of control.” (Herbert Matthews, New York Times, June, 1959)
“In truth I am a lover of democracy. When one right is suppressed, then all others can be repressed. This damages the principle of democracy.” (Fidel Castro, May, 1959)
“Castro is honest. And an honest government is something unique in Cuba. Castro is not himself even remotely a Communist.” (Newsweek, April 1959).
And on, and on, and on……..
Alas, cues from the mainstream media teleprompter probably didn’t precipitate Castro’s recent snipes against Arizona’s SB 1070. Instead, Governor Brewer’s law probably stung him hard —and right where it hurts most.
Don’t look for this anywhere in the U.S. media, but last week Cancun’s former mayor, Gregorio Sanchez, who was also running for governor of Mexico’s state of Quintana Roo, was arrested and charged with a string of crimes, including money-laundering and trafficking in drugs and illegal immigrants. Interestingly, Sanchez is married to a Cuban woman named Niurka Silva, daughter of one of Fidel Castro’s top intelligence officials.
“But, Humberto,” you may ask, “why should something so commonplace and provincially Mexican be reported in the U.S. media?”
Because the drug and human contraband — including Cubans, Russians, Chinese and perhaps Al-Qaeda-allied Somali terrorists — from this Mexican way-station were mostly bound for the U.S., with Arizona as probable entry point. That’s why.
Connecting a few dots: last week, “Anthony Joseph Tracy, 35, was set free after pleading guilty to human smuggling charges ….Tracy, a former informant for two U.S. intelligence agencies, was collared at JFK Airport last January. He copped to helping 272 Somalis illegally enter the U.S. from Kenya through Cuba. …Tracy allegedly helped the Somalis get travel visas to Cuba. After traveling from Kenya to Dubai to Moscow to Cuba, they then went to South America before entering the United States through the border in Mexico.”
Mexican investigative reporter, José Antonio Pérez Stuart, has uncovered links between the international publicity campaign against Arizona and money from powerful Latin American narco-Castroite mafias. That’s also why.
Mexican newspapers have also revealed that a Cuban gentleman named Boris “El Boris” del Valle, son of Cuba’s former Minister of the Interior (KGB-trained secret police/intelligence) and a relative of Fidel Castro’s wife, Dalia del Valle, worked closely with the Sanchez couple and was the “hands-on” operative for the smuggling of drugs and humans into the U.S. His official title while residing in Cancun was Gregorio Sanchez’s “security assessor,” which befits his prior title in Cuba as a dashing military intelligence officer.
With the assistance from his Cuban friends, “El Boris” (now in a Mexican jail) set up his own police/military fiefdom in the Cancun area. Boris worked hand-in-glove with Los Zetas, probably the most efficient gang of drug smuggling enforcers in the world. He also imported hundreds of fellow Castroite functionaries to staff his smuggling operation. Most of these Cuban agents entered Mexico under the guise of “cultural exchanges.”
Normally, the mainstream media would brand Los Zetas a “death squad.” But since their tortures and rub-outs generally benefit “leftists’ (Castro, Ortega, Chavez and their allied narco-mafiosi) mum’s the word in media circles. Now find some link, however tenuous, from them to the CIA or a “U.S. backed strong man” and I guarantee the label “death-squad” will instantly become viral throughout the worldwide media.
So let’s step back and review: a nation classified by the U.S. State Dept. as a State Sponsor of Terrorism (Cuba) is likely helping smuggle Al Qaeda–allied terrorists into the U.S. But should this really come as a surprise from a regime that has jailed political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin’s and murdered them at a higher rate than pre-war Hitler’s?
And what is the Obama administration’s response to it all? Why, let’s abolish those hideously embarrassing Bush-era restrictions and make it easier for Cubans to travel to the U.S. all in the name of—you-guessed it—“cultural exchanges.”
