Jim Belushi Raises Money for Obama, Castro


Pages: 1 2

“I love Cuba!” bellowed comedian Jim Belushi last week from a Havana stage. The comedian, who cashed-in on his comedian brother’s name, was giving a stand-up routine as guest of honor of a regime whose “constitution” mandates two years in prison for any subject overheard cracking a joke about Belushi’s host, Fidel Castro.

Jim Belushi was basking as master of ceremonies of Cuba’s Cigar Festival, which—while auctioning cigars to millionaire and billionaire businessmen from around the world — raised over one million for the regime that jailed, exiled and murdered most of Cuba’s businessmen. Fidel Castro’s son Tony was chuckling from a ringside seat.

Cuba’s tobacco farmers and cigar makers all had their livelihoods stolen at Soviet gunpoint in 1960. The recalcitrant (i.e. people who balked at having their life’s work stolen by Stalinists) were sent to firing squads, torture chambers, forced labor camps and exile. Shortly afterwards, Cuba’s minister of industries, Ernesto “Che” Guevara, “nationalized” and “consolidated” Cuba’s cigar industry.

“Certainly we execute,” beamed Che Guevara at the UN in December 1964. “And we will continue to execute! This is a war to the death against our revolution’s enemies!” Many of these bullet-riddled enemies had simply resisted the armed theft of their family tobacco farms by Che Guevara’s KGB-trained gunmen.

As he chummed it up with regime apparatchiks in Cuba (where the average annual salary is $230), Jim Belushi was fresh from last month’s $38,500-per-plate Obama fundraiser in Beverly Hills where he shared the honors alongside George Clooney.

Note to Jim Belushi’s agent: Your client’s Cuba visit is probably providing more entertainment to many more Cubans than you know, but in more private venues. To wit:

“My job was to bug visiting celebrity’s hotel rooms,” high-ranking Cuban intelligence defector Delfin Fernandez once explained. “With both cameras and listening devices. And famous Americans are the priority objectives of Castro’s intelligence.” He continued: “Most people have no idea they are being watched while they are in Cuba. But their personal activities are filmed under orders from Castro himself.”

And according to some sources, Havana, given the desperation of its brutalized and impoverished residents, has recently topped Bangkok as the world Mecca for child sex.

“He [Delfin Fernandez] has not only met some of the most famous men in the world,” says the London Daily Mirror about the Cuban defector, “he’s also spied on them and been witness to some of their most innermost secrets.”

    Why would you bother giving any time to Belushi? He was washed up before he got started. I don't know a soul that cares a lick for his opinions, likes, desires…or his horrible acting. In the end, he will have lived a wasted life. Let him suck on a cigar….

      It's important to show what "useful idiots" these Hollywood morons are. Even the least talented ones like Jim Belushi.

  • BLJ

    Jim Belushi is an idiot. He also has zero talent and is a stooge.

    I am so glad I've not seen a single thing he's involved in for the past 20 years.

      Dittos!

      I see that you have also joined the Elite and Exclusive Illustrious Order of Moonbats and PC Multicultural Loons, like I have. The only requirement for membership is to disagree with ObamaYoMama, and trigger an attack of his Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Kudos to you, and welcome to a growing fraternity!

        I don't disagree with him on everything, but when I do… he doesn't seem very amused by it.

        Exchanging ideas with some people, they take it way to personally.

        • Stephen_Brady

          In point of fact, I agree with him on about 90% of what he says. But like you say, he takes disagreement to be a personal attack upon him. If he would only realize that we agree on so much, we could possibly make a difference in this critical election year. But I'm not holdng my breath for a reconciliation!

    There is another entity recording not only the useful idiot visitors to Cuba, but also the now-decrepit Castro and his perverted coterie. All of the subjects captured by this omnipresent lens will be required to give an accounting of their actions in a final judgment to a force more powerful than any firing squad commanded by Ché Guevara. Divine truth, and the "justice" for which the left clamor incessantly, being meted out to the likes of Fidel, Raul, and Ché will bring the appropriate punishment for their malevolent deeds: to burn in hell for eternity. Unlike the many victims of "el paredon," none of these demons set loose on earth will be shouting, "Viva Cristo Rey!" before they die. May their malodorous cigars forever remain lit …

      Even if the Pope offers him absolution he will still meet Che in Hell.

    What a lot of misinformation about Cuba. Typical American rant, libellous nonsense, riddled with misquotes out of context.
    I'm Canadian and have worked as a missionary in Cuba for many years. Americans are the most misinformed people on the planet about Cuba. It's a pity they can't travel there, their own American regime forbids them. That would remove the scales from their eyes.
    It's interesting that my Cuban friends were able to visit Canada last year (they stayed with us for three weeks). The husband visited the U.S. the year before. Yet average Americans — in the supposed Land of the Free — are forbidden by their government to visit Cuba as tourists.
    Now tell me — WHO is living under a restrictive regime?
    Good for Jim Belushi.

    • BLJ

      I have nothing against the Cuban people. It is the Castro brothers who are the evil one's. They are just using an dimwit like Belushi just like Hugo Chavez uses that moron Sean Penn.

      Maybe you should speak with some of the relatives of the thousands of Cubans who have been killed or imprisoned since the Castro's came to power.

    • Cuban Refugee

      Traveller: I invite you to visit The Real Cuba at: http://www.therealcuba.com/ to view with your own eyes what your handlers during your missionary work on the island of my birth did not allow you to see. Humberto Fontova also was born in Cuba; so, your claim that this article is "typical American rant" is off the mark. You are blinded by ideology; Humberto's eyes and mine were opened by living amid the repression and deprivation that run rampant in Cuba under the tyrannical thumb of a communist dictator.

      Hey traveller, Too bad you did not visit "Little Havana" in Miami during all your travels then you might have gotten a little different perspective on the Castro brothers regime in the glorious Peoples Republic of Cuba.

      Tell me when the next homemade raft made out of old doors and 55 gallon drums are leaving from here to go to Cuba and then I'll listen to you. When the people of Cuba stop seeing the desperate need to take such action then maybe you can try to tell us how "we've got it all wrong."

      Someday Cuba will be free and the Cuban people will remember those naive Canadians and Europeans who enjoyed cheap winter vacations in Cuba where they stayed at special hotels, tanned their pink bodies on beautiful beaches, and feasted . These Canadians enjoyed these decadent delights while the average Cuban exists on a near starvation diet, still endures religious persecution, are denied all civil rights, until recently could not leave their island prison, and were and are killed if they dared protest or insult their Marxist slave masters. It's difficult to read this tripe from some smug and arrogant Canadian supposed "missionary" who if he/she really lives in Cuba has a privilidged position as a sympathizer of that evil atheist Marxist prison.

    It is sad and amazing the number of elites that have fallen in love wiu this communist regime. They totally diregard the torture and murder this regime has engaged in. It is likely that these people will or have become Cuban intelligence assets. These American elites seem to love communism but likely believe that they will not have to surrender their wealth.

    This clown (I do not mean to insult real clowns who entertain children at a circus) should remember that his grandparents came to the USA from one of the worst Marxist police states that has ever existed: Albania. I wonder if his or his late brother's films are shown in Cuba? What would average Cubans, who eat a ration of nothing but beans and a few pounds of meat a month, think of the prosperity in USA they would see in these "comedy" films? My greatest desire is that I live to see the day Castro and his ilk are strung up in a park in Havana by mobs of happy Cubans like Mussolini was at the end of WW II.

    The photo of Jim Belushi in this article looks exactly like the old Bolshevik propaganda posters of a cigar smoking fat capitalist banker.

    Both Jim and John – a couple of no-talent losers.
