Bernie Sanders defends ‘not all that bad’ Fidel Castro as he stands by old remarks praising Communist Cuba

From Daily Mail: Bernie Sanders has praised Fidel Castro’s ‘massive literacy program’, standing by comments he made praising the dictator’s rule of Cuba in the 1980s.

The Democratic frontrunner, 78, defended the Communist regime as ‘not all bad’ during a wide-ranging 60 Minutes interview which aired Sunday.

In it he told Anderson Cooper: ‘We’re very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba but you know, it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad. You know? When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing? Even though Fidel Castro did it?’

Castro ruled Cuba for nearly half a century. A Cold War foe of the U.S., Castro’s government imprisoned dissidents and imposed one-party rule on the island nation. He died at the age of 90 in 2016.

Probed on the dissidents imprisoned in the country, Sanders replied: ‘That’s right. And we condemn that. Unlike Donald Trump, let’s be clear…I do not think that Kim Jong Un is a good friend. I don’t trade love letters with a murdering dictator. Vladimir Putin, not a great friend of mine.’

The self proclaimed Democratic socialist won a decisive victory Saturday in the Nevada caucuses, solidifying his frontrunner status in the race to choose the Democratic nominee who faces President Donald Trump in November’s election.

The 78-year-old senator from Vermont was leading with about 46 percent, followed by former vice president Joe Biden at 19 percent.

But even for Sanders the results are ‘shocking’, adding: ‘The ideas that seemed radical four years ago are now kind of mainstream.

‘When Donald Trump was a private businessman in New York, he got $800 million in tax breaks and subsidies to build luxury housing. That’s called corporate socialism. What democratic socialism is about is saying, ‘Let’s use the federal government to protect the interests of working families.’

Hey Bernie Bros, you REALLY want socialism? Take a look at how it works in Cuba

From Turning Point USA:

“Turning Point USA traveled to Cuba to investigate the true realities of what a generation of full Socialism has done to the once-thriving Cuban population.

What did we discover? Everything you have ever seen about Cuba is a lie. #SocialismSucks

Listen to what the residents of Cuba have to say. Starts at 8:50 mark. And right after the two gentlemen speak, watch and see how the kids are suffering. The people there are suffering.

This is NOT what we want for America.

Bookmark and watch when you have 15 spare minutes. It’s really sad and depressing.

And share with any socialist-leaning people you may know.

Poor Bernie Bro supporters are FORCED to participate in capitalism

Always the victim…

Heaven forbid one of the Bernie Sanders, socialist-loving fools think for themselves on how they can survive in America without being FORCED to participate in the system that so many foreigners flock to for a better life.

Here’s a couple hints on how to remove yourself from this FORCED system:

Ditch your capitalism-made Smartphone. You CAN survive without checking how many likes your most-recent Instagram post received. You DON’T need Facebook to filter #fakenews. No one will die if they don’t see your most recent tweet. The world will not end if you are cut off from social media. If you need to communicate electronically, use the community-owned computer at your local library.

Get rid of your fossil fuel car. Most of the Bernie Bros have probably already done this and use public transportation or Uber (no fossil fuel vehicles, of course). In order to better the community, one must eliminate the private-vehicle methods of transportation. Better yet, make sure your transportation method eliminates the amount of capitalism-made vehicles on the road: Use the “passenger-garbage-trucks” method that Venezuelans enjoys!

Venezuela’s efficient transportation method!

Get off the grid. What do you need electricity for anyway (you don’t need to power that capitalism-made Smartphone)? Don’t you want to save the environment? After all, if North Koreans can survive on only a few hours a day worth of electricity, can’t you do the same in socialist-solidarity with them?

North Korea doing their part to save the environment…

Embrace the Medicare for All: Since Obamacare didn’t solve America’s health care crisis, socialized healthcare MUST be the solution. Because you deem healthcare as a right, that means a socialized system will be better, correct? I know the capitalism-run healthcare industry isn’t perfect yet you Bernie Bros are resourceful folk. In order to benefit the community, make sure to plan for your next hospital visit and bring your go-to hospital bag: One that is ready, waiting and nearby stocked with pillows, sheets and medicine.

A lovely and beautiful socialized hospital in socialist Cuba

Learn how to grow a garden. Grow your own food instead of buying it at that evil WalMart! Plus with the inevitable mismanagement of a government-run economy, food will become scarce. Tilling and planting seeds will become a valuable skill. Better yet, in order to save the environment you can acquire a taste for bugs. Or zoo animals.

Then there’s always this option: MOVE. Take your socialism-loving butt to Venezuela, Cuba or North Korea. No one is holding you here at gun point. You’re free to leave whenever your heart desires.

You can survive dipsh*t, without being FORCED to participate in our capitalism. Get back to me after you’ve tried my suggested methods and let me know how much you enjoyed the socialist methods.

I eagerly await to hear about your enlightened experiences.

Sanctuary Colorado: Inmate wanted by ICE freed on bail and arrested weeks later for attempted murder

Gov. Jared Polis (l)

In May this year, Colorado Governor Jared Polis (demorat) gave illegal aliens a free pass by signing HB 1124 which prohibits law enforcement from honoring ICE detainers. Read about all the protections illegal aliens have from the feds here.

Because of Colorado’s desire to protect criminal illegal aliens, an inmate from Cuba who was wanted by ICE was released on bail in late October, only to be arrested weeks later on attempted murder charges.

Excerpts from a USA Today story:

But local law enforcement say the new law had little effect on their handling of the case and federal officials had been notified about the inmate’s release, giving ICE the chance to take custody of a suspect who the agency claims is in the country illegally.

The Colorado law in question was enacted in May and bars law enforcement officials in the state from holding a person based only on a request from ICE — commonly called an immigration detainer. It’s a practice that ICE says aids federal immigration enforcement and benefits public safety, but detainers are controversial and have been challenged as unconstitutional.

Detainer requests typically ask law enforcement agencies to give ICE at least 48 hours’ notice before a suspected immigrant is released from a jail — or to hold the person for up to 48 hours after they would normally be released.

In its latest criticism, ICE says law enforcement in Colorado followed the state’s law and ignored a federal detainer on an inmate, releasing him on bond as planned despite ICE’s request to hold him longer.

That inmate was soon allegedly involved in a violent crime, which ICE believes could have been prevented had Colorado law allowed local law enforcement to honor immigration detainers.

Local officials, however, say it has been a longstanding policy to not honor immigration detainers and the new law did not impact this case. They also say federal immigration officials were told of the inmate’s imminent release two-and-a-half hours before he was freed.

The case involves Osmani Garces-Ortiz — 37, who emigrated from Cuba. Garces-Ortiz was in custody in late October at the Arapahoe County Jail, located about 15 miles southeast of Denver on several charges including drug possession and criminal trespassing, according to a release from ICE.

Garces-Ortiz was freed on bond four days after ICE placed a detainer on him, ICE says.”

Operation Northwoods: A true U.S. government conspiracy for those who mock conspiracy theories

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:30:48 +0000   eowyn2

The next time someone heaps scorn on you, making fun of your suspicions about the federal government by calling you a “conspiracy theorist,” show this post to your mocker.

The term “false flag” has its origins in naval warfare where a flag other than the belligerent’s true battle flag is used as a ruse de guerre or pretext for war. As the term is used in contemporary America, a “false flag” incident is some traumatic event that is contrived and manipulated by the authorities to achieve some covert agenda. The public is given an untruthful version of the event by government and/or the media. The intended result is a “rallying around the flag” effect, wherein an inflamed and duped populace rally in support of the government’s secret agenda.

Admittedly, it is difficult for the ordinary American to think the U.S. government can stoop so low as to instigate false flags, for that would mean our government is in the hands of people so diabolical, calling them psychopaths does not begin to describe what they are. That is a frightening thought.

But it is a thought not entirely alien to our Founding Fathers who instituted a new polity based on a view of human nature as inherently self-interested instead of benevolent, and of government as a necessary evil that must be constrained and delimited. To quote James Madison in The Federalist Papers:

“What is government itself but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external or internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: You must first enable the government to control the governed, and in the next place oblige it to control itself.”

For his part, Thomas Jefferson, in his 1787 letter to Edward Carrington, vividly described what government would be if unchecked and unsupervised. He warned that “if once” the people “become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress, and Assemblies, Judges, and Governors, shall all become wolves.

The plain fact of the matter is that there are governments and political leaders who are evil psychopaths. Just ask the millions of innocent men, women, and children whom the Nazis had slaughtered, or the hundreds of millions of innocent men, women, and children whom the Communists had killed in the former Soviet Union, the People’s Republic of China and Kampuchea. Why would Americans, who partake of the same non-angelic human nature, be uniquely virtuous? It is for that reason that the Founders established a polity with mechanisms of checks and balances to limit government.

Even with checks and balances in place, the history of the United States is riddled with actual and planned false flags and conspiracies. As an example, the 1964 Gulf of Tonkin incident, in which the U.S.S. Maine and U.S.S. Turner Joy reportedly were fired on without provocation by the North Vietnamese, was a false flag of the Lyndon Johnson Administration. Congress took the bait and passed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution that, by pre-approving the president’s military actions, gave Johnson a free ticket to wage war in Vietnam. It turned out no Vietnamese boats were even in the gulf at the time of the alleged attack.

Then there was Operation Northwoods, a false flag of such scope and devious audacity, it takes your breath away.

As reported by David Ruppe for ABC News, May 1, 2001:

In the early 1960s, America’s top military leaders reportedly drafted plans to kill innocent people and commit acts of terrorism in U.S. cities to create public support for a war against Cuba.

Code named Operation Northwoods, the plans reportedly included the possible assassination of Cuban émigrés, sinking boats of Cuban refugees on the high seas, hijacking planes, blowing up a U.S. ship, and even orchestrating violent terrorism in U.S. cities.

The plans were developed as ways to trick the American public and the international community into supporting a war to oust Cuba’s then new leader, communist Fidel Castro.

America’s top military brass even contemplated causing U.S. military casualties, writing: “We could blow up a U.S. ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba,” and, “casualty lists in U.S. newspapers would cause a helpful wave of national indignation.” […]

The plans had the written approval of all of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and were presented to President Kennedy’s defense secretary, Robert McNamara, in March 1962. But they apparently were rejected by the civilian leadership and have gone undisclosed for nearly 40 years.

Operation Northwoods was proposed in March 1962 at the beginning of John F. Kennedy’s presidency by the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff and approved by the head of every branch of the U.S. armed forces. Only a year before, in his farewell speech to the American people on January 17, 1961, President Dwight D. Eisenhower had warned that “we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military–industrial complex.”

The Operation Northwoods proposals called for the CIA or other government operatives to undertake acts of terrorism against U.S. military and civilian targets in Guantanamo Bay, Miami, other Florida cities, and even in Washington, D.C. Proposed acts included sinking U.S. ships, having fake Cuban MIGs attack a United States Air Force aircraft, hijacking and shooting down a chartered civil airliner, and gunning down civilians in the streets. The attacks would be blamed on the Fidel Castro government, which would be used as pretexts for a “military intervention” against Cuba.

Thankfully, President Kennedy rejected the proposals. A year and 8 months later, on November 22, 1963, he was assassinated.

The public learned about Operation Northwoods only 35 years later on November 18, 1997. That day, the John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Review Board declassified Justification for U.S. Military Intervention in Cuba, a top secret collection of draft memoranda outlining the false flag proposals, written by the Department of Defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Below are screenshots I took from the Appendix of a memo to the Joint Chiefs of Staff from the Department of Defense, dated March 9, 1962, in Justification for U.S. Military Intervention in Cuba. The Appendix contains the nauseating details of the proposed false flag.

Operation Northwoods memo1Operation Northwoods memo2Operation Northwoods memo3Operation Northwoods memo4Operation Northwoods memo5Operation Northwoods memo6Operation Northwoods memo7Operation Northwoods memo8Operation Northwoods memo9Operation Northwoods memo10

Please ask yourself whether anything has really changed for us to be assured that our government has not and will not undertake false flags like Operation Northwoods or worse. On the contrary, with the establishment media acting more as a Ministry of Truth than the feisty check on political power intended by the Founding Fathers, I fully expect our government to be even more devious and skillful. (See “CIA spreads disinformation to news agencies“)

If Sandy Hook was a false flag, it is small potatoes compared to Operation Northwoods.

Canada to apologize and give $8m to youngest Guantanamo Bay prisoner who pleaded guilty to murdering US soldier

omar khadr

Killer Omar Khadr: Laughing all the way to the bank


I swear, up is down and down is up in this world.
From Daily Mail: The Canadian government will apologize to former Guantanamo Bay inmate Omar Khadr and pay him around $8m (Canadian $10m) to compensate him for the abuse he suffered in detention, two sources familiar with the matter said on Tuesday.
A Canadian citizen, Khadr, now 30, was captured in Afghanistan in 2002 at age 15 after a firefight with U.S. soldiers. He pleaded guilty to killing a US army medic and became the youngest inmate held at the US military prison in Cuba. Khadr later recanted and his lawyers said he had been grossly mistreated.
The Canadian Supreme Court ruled in 2010 that Canada breached his rights by sending intelligence agents to interrogate him and by sharing the results with the United States. (According to ABC News, the abuse included sleep deprivation during interrogations.)
Khadr spent a decade in Guantanamo before being returned to Canada in 2012 to serve the rest of his sentence. He was released on bail in 2015 and lives in Edmonton, Alberta.
The Canadian government and Khadr’s lawyers reached the compensation deal, said the sources, who asked to remain anonymous given the sensitivity. Canada has reached a series of expensive settlements with citizens imprisoned abroad who alleged Ottawa was complicit in their mistreatment.
Khadr had sued Ottawa for around $15m (Canadian $20) on grounds of violating his human rights. News of the settlement was first reported by the Globe and Mail newspaper.
Khadr was taken to Afghanistan by his father, a senior al Qaeda member, who apprenticed the boy to a group of bomb makers who opened fire when U.S. troops went to their compound. The father was killed in a battle with Pakistani forces in 2003.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, in Ireland for a visit, said the judicial process should be ending soon but declined further comment.
Spokespeople for Trudeau and Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Nor did Khadr’s lawyers. The U.S. Embassy was closed for the July 4 U.S. holiday.
‘It is the right decision in light of the callous and unlawful treatment meted out to Mr. Khadr with the complicity of Canadian officials,’ said Ihsaan Gardee, executive director of the National Council of Canadian Muslims.

680 Cubans returned home since end of 'wet foot, dry foot'

wet-foot-dry-foot-obama
Via Fox News: About 680 Cubans have been returned to the island from various countries since then-President Barack Obama ended a longstanding immigration policy that allowed any Cuban who made it to U.S. soil to stay and become a legal resident, state television reported Friday.
Cuba’s government had long sought the repeal of the “wet foot, dry foot” policy, which it said encouraged Cubans to risk dangerous voyages and drained the country of professionals. The Jan. 12 decision by Washington to end it followed months of negotiations focused in part on getting Havana to agree to take back people who had arrived in the U.S.
Cuban state television said late Friday that the returnees came from countries including the United States, Mexico and the Bahamas, and were sent back to the island between Jan. 12 and Feb. 17. It did not break down which countries the 680 were sent back from.
The report said the final two returnees arrived from the United States on Friday “on the first charter flight especially destined for an operation of this type.”
Florida’s El Nuevo Herald newspaper reported that the two women were deemed “inadmissible” for entry to the United States and placed on a morning flight to Havana.
Wilfredo Allen, an attorney for one of the women, says they had arrived at Miami International Airport with European passports. The women requested asylum and were detained.
The repeal of the “wet foot, dry foot” policy was Obama’s final move before leaving office in the rapprochement with the communist-run country that he and Cuban President Castro began in December 2014. The surprise decision left hundreds of Cubans stranded in transit in South and Central America.
Before he assumed the presidency on Jan. 20, Donald Trump criticized the detente between the U.S. and Cuba, tweeting that he might “terminate” it.

Kaepernick’s parents say their son “is possibly putting his life on the line for those (his) beliefs”

A military parent might have a different perspective about that statement.
kaepernick-taking-a-knee
From ESPN: The parents of embattled San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick have broken their silence on their son’s decision to kneel for the playing of the national anthem this season.
“Colin is carrying a heavy load and following a difficult path that he truly believes in. He is putting his entire future and possibly his life on the line for those beliefs,” Teresa and Rick Kaepernick wrote in a statement addressed to The Undefeated on Friday. “As his parents, it pains us to read articles and tweets saying that his family does not support him; this could not be further from the truth. We want people to know that we are very proud of our son and admire his strength and courage in kneeling for the rights of others.
Reached by phone Friday evening, Teresa Kaepernick said the couple initially wanted to avoid the limelight associated with making a public statement about their son but were shocked by the overwhelmingly false narrative that she and her husband don’t support their son.
The Kaepernicks’ support of Colin initially came into question after USA Today reported in early September that the family flew an American flag in front of their Modesto, California, home, an apparent statement of their displeasure with Colin. At the time, Teresa said, “It’s not in our best interest or Colin’s best interest” to make a comment. Colin later told reporters that his parents “agree with what I’m standing for.”

Glad to know Kaepernick's parents agree with their son supporting Castro

Glad to know Kaepernick’s parents agree with their son standing for Castro


More than three months later, his parents are finally ready to speak.
“Colin has chosen to kneel for the national anthem as a protest to the continuing racial inequality in this country,” the statement read. “He has explained his reasons for this in multiple interviews, yet it seems some people still do not understand his point. For whatever reason, there are some who want to view this as an anti-military protest or an un-American stance. These views could not be further from the truth, but we know that people will believe what they wish to believe. The recent remarks (attacks) by Admiral Harris supported by the Pentagon are over the top, and we feel the desire to make a public statement in support of our son.

On Wednesday, Adm. Harry B. Harris, who heads the U.S. Pacific Command, made indirect comments against Kaepernick while addressing a crowd to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. “You can bet that the men and women we honor today — and those who died that fateful morning 75 years ago — never took a knee and never failed to stand whenever they heard our national anthem being played,” he said.
“Our military takes an oath to support and defend the Constitution, and many have fought and died to defend our constitutional rights. Indeed after such sacrifice it is a reasonable expectation that all of our citizens enjoy life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” the Kaepernicks’ statement read.
“I just want to be on the record that we absolutely do support him,” Teresa told The Undefeated by phone.

Cuban migrants rescued from raft off Florida accused of shooting THEMSELVES in desperate bid to be granted US asylum

Don’t worry, I’m sure Obama is still working hard on “normalized relations” that will somehow benefit the citizens of Cuba.

Via Daily Mail: Six wounded Cuban migrants who were rescued off the coast of Key West on Saturday have been accused of shooting themselves in a desperate bid to be granted asylum in the US. The rafters, including a woman who is 16 weeks pregnant, were all taken to South Florida hospitals to be treated, while everyone else on the 26-strong boat was taken to border control be deported. One who was shot in the foot was treated before joining the group set for deportation.
Now, the remaining wounded six are desperately trying to defend themselves against claims they inflicted their own gunshot wounds – which astoundingly missed all vital organs and arteries.
They claim they were targeted by Cuban gunmen at sea then sailed into American waters to seek help. ‘That [to intentionally shoot yourself] would have been something very hard,’ 16-weeks-pregnant Yarelys Rios, 37, told a press conference reported by the WSVN.

Both Rios and her husband Denny Rumbaut were shot in the right side between the ribs and the hip.   ‘I am pregnant and I’m not going to risk my baby to come to a country that, yes, where I want to be, but not that way.’ She added: ‘I know that in American waters there are several boats that can assist you and at that moment I could not go back not knowing who were the people shooting at us and what could happen.’
Rios and her husband addressed reporters with two other wounded migrants on Monday, during which they each flashed their scars. One of them, Jorge Luis Escalona, has an identical wound to Rios and Rumbaut, WSVN reported.  The other, Yaser Cabrera, was hit between the ribs and hip on his left side, slightly closer to his stomach. Another, not identified, was shot in the shoulder.
Rumbaut gave his version of events in Spanish: ‘Some people came out of the woods, armed, trying to steal our raft. We refused.’ He said gunfire ensued and they headed towards Key West, where they were eventually intercepted.
In a statement on Saturday the US Coast Guard said: ‘The U.S. Coast Guard interdicted 26 Cuban migrants aboard a make-shift raft south of Key West, Florida Saturday afternoon. Seven of the 26 migrants had gunshot wounds sustained prior to the interdiction. The most critical, six, were medevaced to a local area hospital.  The remaining 20 migrants will likely be returned to their country of origin.  The U.S. Coast Guard works hard to ensure the safety of migrants on our cutters after an interdiction and strongly discourages attempts to illegally enter the country by taking to the sea.  These trips are extremely dangerous and could lead to loss of life.’
Earlier this year, authorities said Cuban migrants desperate to reach U.S. shore are increasingly violent and noncompliant with Coast Guard crews who detain them at sea, citing reports of attempted poisoning and self-inflicted wounds as rumors swirl that the ‘wet-foot, dry-foot’ policy will soon be abandoned.

Fidel Castro was not impressed with Obama

Join the club.
fidel_castro
Via NY Post: Fidel Castro — speaking out for the first time since President Obama’s historic visit to Cuba — blasted the US leader for trying to meddle in his country’s affairs.
In a letter titled “Brother Obama” and published Monday in El Granma, the official state newspaper of the Cuban Communist Party, the island nation’s former president scoffed, “We don’t need the empire to give us any presents.”
Castro, 89, ripped Obama for assuming that Cuba trusted him when he said the US government is done trying to overthrow the Communist regime and that this will help the island move more quickly toward economic and political reform. “My modest suggestion is that he reflects and doesn’t try to develop theories about Cuban politics,” Castro said.
“No one should pretend that the people of this noble and selfless country will renounce its glory and its rights,” he wrote. “We are capable of producing the food and material wealth that we need with the work and intelligence of our people.”

He even took a swipe at Obama’s relative youth. “Native populations do not exist at all in the minds of Obama. Nor does he say that racial discrimination was swept away by the Revolution; that retirement and salary of all Cubans were enacted by this before Mr. Barack Obama was 10 years old,” Castro said.
Obama had said in a speech that “it is time, now, for us to leave the past behind,” but the diehard Commie retorted, “I imagine that any one of us ran the risk of having a heart attack on hearing these words from the President of the United States.”
Castro ceded power to his brother Raul in 2008. Obama met with Raul last week, the first time a US president had been to Cuba since 1928. The newspaper that published Fidel’s letter takes its name from the yacht that Fidel and dozens of other rebels used to travel from Mexico to Cuba to launch their revolution in 1956.
