Fidel Castro: Cuban Revolution

INTRODUCTION


He is the darling of the American left. His island nation is held up as an example the United States should emulate by the liberals of America. Hollywood leftists worship him, although not one of them has yet to sell his oceanfront Malibu home, give the proceeds to the poor, and move to his capital city to live in abject poverty with his comrades.

His system of government is held in the highest esteem by the American left because even though his citizens live in utter squalor, they're all equally poor. The poverty in his country is rivaled only in the Western Hemisphere by Haiti. He has ruled his nation with an iron fist for fifty years—though was never elected to public office.

The average Cuban today eats 1/4 of the meat and less rice, beans, and bread than did Cuban slaves in 1840. The fearless leader himself owns sixty homes and has amassed a fortune of a nine hundred million dollars. This is the story of Fidel Castro, and the utopian paradise he created in Cuba.

CUBA BEFORE CASTRO

Before Fidel Castro came to power, Cuba boasted nearly the highest standard of living in the Spanish-speaking world. It was not predominately a country of rural peasantry, but a nation of cities with a large middle-class. 80 percent of the Cuban people were literate. The share of the national income that went to regular wage-earners was 65 percent—4th highest in the world behind the US, the UK, and Canada. This would seem like a very unlikely place for a Socialist revolution.

But in the 1950s, Cuba dissolved into a morass of corruption under a greedy and cruel dictator named Batista. Cuba had degenerated into a playground for rich Americans that was full of gambling, drinking, sex shows, and prostitution. Like all of Latin America then—and most of it still today—everything ran on bribes and kickbacks. The main casinos were operated by the Jewish-American gangster Meyer Lansky, who paid Batista over a million dollars a month for his "license."

Batista himself had an unlikely rise to power from the son of a sugar cane cutter and a mulatto maid. When he took control in Cuba in 1940 he was sergeant in the Cuban Army. Through corruption, Batista became fabulously wealthy. But he was despised by most Cubans and traveled everywhere with a phalanx of armed guards. Since almost nothing Batista said was believed by the Cuban people, almost everything Fidel Castro said was believed, though it was no more true.

  THE AMERICAN LEFT ANOINTS CASTRO

The New York Times sent a Socialist reporter down to Cuba in 1957 to survey the situation. The reporter, Herbert Matthews, selected an little-known guerilla leader with only 150 followers named Fidel Castro as the best man to lead a new Cuba.

Matthews wrote a series of articles that romanticized Castro and made him a hero to the American Left, who desperately needed a hero since they had recently been forced to stop publicly idolizing Josef Stalin, as it had come to light that Stalin had killed fifty million people in the name of Socialism.

Matthews said this in the New York Times about Fidel Castro: "The personality of the man is overpowering. It was easy to see that his men [all 130 of them] adored him [hell, that many people adore me!] and also to see why he has caught the imagination of the youth of Cuba all over the island. Here was an educated, dedicated fanatic, a man of ideals, of courage and of remarkable qualities of leadership."

This story and others by Matthews—who wrote like a star-struck schoolgirl about Fidel—had an immense impact in making Castro a legendary, mythical personage. Castro also fooled Matthews into thinking his support was enormously larger than it was in real life. Arthur Hays Sulzberger, the owner of the New York Times, later admitted that Matthews had shown "poor judgement" and "misled" his readers.

 
FIDEL CASTRO

Fidel Castro was the spoiled illegitimate son of a rich immigrant from Spain—and his maid—who had earned a fortune in Cuba with his fruit plantation.

Fidel Castro, having too much time on his hands—an idle mind is the devil's workshop—began to fancy himself a Marxist revolutionary. He was influenced by the cold-blooded murderer Che Guevara—you know, the one leftists have on T-Shirts and wall posters.

Castro led armed student rebellions, and committed numerous crimes including murder, in several Latin American countries. In 1948, Castro helped organize the violence that claimed the lives of 3,000 Columbian citizens. His ultimate goal was to be internationally famous.

Despite the fact that Castro was a Communist gangster determined to attain personal power through violence, Herbert Matthews wrote glowing articles about him that painted him as the Lawrence of Arabia of the Caribbean. To Matthews, Castro was a brave young rebel who risked his life to bring down a hated dictator and would bring about a free and prosperous democracy in Cuba.

One of his friends described Castro thus: "He was a power-hungry person, completely unprincipled, who would throw in his lot with any group he felt could help his political career." Castro himself claimed that his "vocation is being a revolutionary." He fancied himself Lenin and Hitler rolled into one. He modeled his early rhetoric on the proto-fascist Primo de Rivera.



CASTRO TAKES POWER IN CUBA


Castro, backed by the New York Times, took over in Cuba in 1959. It wasn't so much that he conquered the government as that the 70,000 Cuban military men and policemen refused to fight against him because they believed his promises about the great utopia he would bring to Cuba. Batista fled the country.

Fidel Castro never had more than 3,000 followers at any time in his career. His so-called battles were mere public relations exercises. In the "Battle of Santa Clara" he lost six men. In the largest engagement of the Cuban Revolution, Castro lost 40 men and the government 300.

The "guerilla war" was just propaganda. As his best friend Che Guevara admitted: "The presence of a foreign journalist, American for preference, was more important for us than a military victory."

Castro set about turning Cuba into a giant Communist prison camp. Like all dictators, Castro needed an enemy. He selected the United States. He seized property that belonged to Americans worth over a billion dollars- 1959 dollars. US President Eisenhower did nothing except place an embargo on Cuban sugar.

Shortly after taking over Cuba, Fidel Castro visited the United States. He said all the right things—that he hated dictators, he loved a free press, and he promised not to expropriate property in Cuba owned and developed by Americans.

He charmed everybody it seemed except Richard Nixon, who knew a liar when he saw one. Nixon asked him why he had not scheduled elections. Castro said the Cuban people did not want elections. Nixon asked why he was executing people left and right without a trial. Castro said the Cuban people did not want trials.

Within months, Castro had signed agreements with the Soviet Union by which Cuba became its satellite in exchange for weapons, advisors, and KGB agents to train Castro's secret police. He murdered the top military man in the country, as well as the top judge, and slapped any persons who voiced opposition to his dictatorship into prison for up to thirty years. One of his top men in the revolution, Huber Matos, was arrested and spent twenty years in prison for criticizing Castro. As Castro said: "Revolutionary Justice is based not upon legal precepts but on moral conviction."

Incidently, the Vice President who now holds the reigns, publicly blames the U.S. for somehow causing Chavez's cancer.

This may have been a mistake.
IMO he looked like a man too healthy to die at 58.

Anything is possible, especially since he was a thorn in America's eyes.

After all Castro was a controversial and divisive world figure, lauded as a champion of anti-imperialism, humanitarianism, socialism and environmentalism by his supporters, but considered by his critics as a dictator who has overseen multiple human rights abuses.

Through his actions and his writings he has significantly influenced the politics of various individuals and groups across the world, including Nelson Mandela, Hugo Chávez, Evo Morales and Rafael Correa.

MSM support for Castro largely gone down the Memory Hole, just as with Khomeini of Iran.  My dad once mentioned that during the Cuban Revolution Castro got much publicity as a moderate socialist; college students marched in support etc.  There's strong evidence that CIA supported Castro:  creating a leftist Soviet-puppet Cuba helped scare Americans into supporting the Cold War.  After Castro gained power the US gov't turned it's back on him & AFAIK basically forced him into the Soviet camp.  CIA psychologists surely had Castro sized up as a "caudillo" who was actually little interested in democracy & was incompetent in economics.

EB,

There's also strong evidence that the CIA supported Gramsci Student O'Bummer, until he has served his purpose of course, and then a new leader will be 'chosen'.

Barack Obama, His Mother, and the CIA: So Why the Omission?

In his autobiography, Dreams From My Fathers, Barack Obama writes of taking a job at some point after graduating from Columbia University in 1983. He describes his employer as “a consulting house to multinational corporations” in New York City, and his functions as a “research assistant” and “financial writer”.

Oddly, Obama doesn’t mention the name of his employer. However, a New York Times story of October 30, 2007 identifies the company as Business International Corporation. Equally odd is that the Times did not remind its readers that the newspaper itself had disclosed in 1977 that Business International had provided cover for four CIA employees in various countries between 1955 and 1960


Even Wiki mentions Obama Momma working for for World Bank, Ford Foundation & USAID (all kissing cousins of CIA).

BTW your previous post didn't show the publiceye.org link, oddly I only saw it in the Reply box.  Well anyway various organizations spin LaRouche as it suits them:  Last time bankster-WashPost did a feature (long ago) they claimed he was a crypto-Stalinist; other Jew orgs claim LaRouchies are crypto-Nazis.  Since LaRouche is a prolific yet often subtle writer/speaker it's easy for opponents to cherry-pick out-of-context stuff.

I don't think Chávez ever got the jew paradigm.

With him, it was always "dam jYankees", gringos/white Americans, and of course the American govt.

Hard to say, Chavez was no fan of Israel & got some propaganda mileage from contributing heating oil for poor Americans.

Capriles joins Venezuelan presidential race

Published time: March 11, 2013 02:43
source: http://rt.com/news/capriles-run-elections-venezuela-071/


Henrique Capriles addresses the media in Caracas March 10, 2013 (Reuters / Carlos Garcia Rawlins)

Venezuelan opposition leader Henrique Capriles, has officially announced that he will run in the snap presidential elections that will take place April 14. This will be his second bid for the top office after last year’s defeat.

On Sunday, Capriles told a news conference that he will challenge late leader Hugo Chavez’s hand-picked successor Nicolas Maduro, in the upcoming vote. “I am going to fight," Capriles, the 40-year-old governor of Miranda state, said. "Nicolas, I am not going to give you a free pass. You will have to beat me with votes."

On Friday, hours after the state funeral of Hugo Chavez, Vice President Nicolas Maduro was sworn in as acting president of Venezuela. Given the high support Chavez enjoyed, many are viewing Maduro as the race’s favorite.

The new vote will be a litmus test on the appetite for more of Chavez’s Bolivarian revolution and Venezuelan model of socialism. In the October elections, Capriles lost to Chavez winning 44 per cent of the vote – the highest showing by the opposition against Chavez.

Speaking to reporters Capriles accused Maduro of using “the body of the president for political campaigning." Maduro earlier announced that the body of the late leader will be embalmed just like Lenin and laid in state in the ‘Mountain Barracks’ where he devised a failed coup.

Venezuela: US Embassy Staff Shot At Strip Club

Sky NewsSky News – 3:13PM PST
source: http://uk.news.yahoo.com/venezuela-us-embassy-staff-shot-strip-club-221323058.html#ey7Xw7k

Two US embassy employees have been shot at a strip club in Venezuela's capital, police and US State Department officials said.

"Medical staff inform us that their injuries are not life-threatening," US State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell told reporters in Washington.

Mr Ventrell was not specific about where in Caracas the two men were when they were injured, but noted that they were at "some sort of social spot or somewhere outside of the embassy grounds".

The circumstances of the shooting remained unclear, with conflicting reports over whether it happened inside or outside the Antonella 2012 nightclub.

Police said the two US officials were shot following a brawl inside the club, which is in the basement of a shopping centre in the upper-middle-class Chacao neighbourhood.

The club's Twitter account features racy photos of nude or scantily clad women pole dancing, posing inside cages or reclining on beds.

"Apparently it was a fight originating in a nightspot where these people were attacked and shots were fired at them and they suffered gunshot wounds," police spokesman Douglas Rico told TV channel Globovision at the health clinic where the victims were taken.

He said one was shot in the leg and abdomen and the other was shot in the abdomen.

A police official identified one of the victims as military attache Roberto Ezequiel Rosas.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to release the information publicly, said Mr Rosas was shot in the right leg during an argument outside the night club.

The other man has been named in reports as Paul Marwin.

Local media reports also said the pair were military attaches at the embassy, but neither the State Department nor the embassy in Caracas would confirm those reports.

"My understanding is that they are other agency personnel, not from the State Department," Mr Ventrell said.

Venezuela's government expelled two US military attaches in March for allegedly talking to members of the country's armed forces. Washington responded by ejecting two Venezuelan diplomats.

The United States and Venezuela have not exchanged ambassadors since 2010 and have had strained relations since Caracas accused Washington of backing a coup that briefly ousted the late Hugo Chavez in 2002.

Venezuela has the highest murder rate in South America and several diplomats have been assaulted in recent months in the country.

Venezuelan president denied travel through US airspace - Caracas

Published time: September 19, 2013 23:25
Edited time: September 20, 2013 04:33
source: http://rt.com/news/maduro-plane-us-airspace-102/


Reuters / Jorge Silva

Venezuelan Foreign Minister Elias Jaua told media that an aircraft carrying President Nicolas Maduro was denied a path over Puerto Rico’s airspace.

President Maduro’s flight, which was to depart for China, was forced to find an alternate flight path according to Jaua, who denounced the act as “an act of aggression.”

“We have received the information from American officials that we have been denied travel over its airspace,” Jaua said, speaking to reporters during an official meeting with his South African counterpart.

“We denounce this as yet another aggression on the part of North American imperialism against the government of the Bolivarian Republic,” he added.   

"No one can deny airspace to a plane carrying a president on an international state visit."

There is “no valid argument” for denying travel through American airspace, Jaua said, adding that he expected the US to rectify the situation.

President Maduro was due to arrive in Beijing this weekend for bilateral talks with the Chinese government. Jaua was adamant that the Venezuelan leader would reach his destination, regardless of any perceived interference.

Though the US has yet to issue an official response, the latest incident will likely add to already strained relations between the two countries.

In July, the Venezuelan president announced that his government was halting attempts to improve relations with the US. The move was in response to comments made by the newly appointed US Ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power, who told a Senate committee that her new role would include challenging the “crackdown on civil society” abroad, including in Venezuela.

Relations under former President Chavez had been acrimonious, as he had long held suspicions that the US had actively intervened on behalf of an attempted coup in 2002. Since his election in April, President Maduro has often made pointed criticisms at alleged US interference in Venezuelan affairs.

Bolivian President Evo Morales, whose own plane was grounded this summer allegedly due to suspicions by US authorities that the aircraft was transporting whistleblower Edward Snowden, said that ALBA bloc nations should consider a boycott of the upcoming UN General Assembly in New York as a response.

"We cannot accept that the US carries on with politics of intimidation and the prohibition of flights by presidents," said Morales, adding that the latest incident "demonstrates the country's predisposition to humiliate other governments" and commit crimes against other nations.

Dispute over visas ahead of UN summit

The Venezuelan President also spoke of attempts by the US to set  “conditions” on a visa issued to General Wilmer  Barrientos, one of Maduro’s ministers who is slated to attend  meetings during the UN General Assembly next week.

"They want to put conditions, if we decide to go to New  York...They don't want to give a visa to my  minister," said Maduro. "Do we want to go as  tourists? We're going to the United Nations. You're obligated to  give visas to all the delegation."

Appearing via the television network TeleSUR on Thursday, Maduro  indicated that he had directed his foreign minister, Elías Jaua,  and Venezuela’s Ambassador to the UN, Samuel Moncada, to  “activate all mechanisms” in reference to the visa  dispute.

“US, you are not the UN’s owner. The UN will have to move out  of New York,” remarked Maduro.

All US diplomats could be expelled: Maduro

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has threatened to expel all US diplomats from the country, days after he ordered the expulsion of three US embassy diplomats, accusing them of plotting to sabotage the economy.

"First, I threw out their advance team working to destabilize the nation. Now if they push it with funny stuff, I will throw them all out," AFP quoted Maduro as saying on Wednesday.

During a live TV appearance on Monday, Maduru said chargé d'affaires Kelly Keiderling and two other diplomats would have 48 hours to leave the country.

He said the diplomats had met with the "Venezuelan far-right" to finance his opponents and "encourage actions to sabotage the power system and the economy."

“We will not allow an imperial government to bring money and see how they can stop basic companies and stop the electricity to turn off all of Venezuela," Maduro said.

On Tuesday, the US expelled three Venezuelan diplomats in reprisal.

The US State Department said that it had given Venezuelan chargé d' affaires Calixto Ortega Rios and Second Secretary Monica Alejandra Sanchez Morales at the Washington embassy and Consul Marisol Gutierrez de Almeida at the Houston consulate 48 hours to leave the United States.

The department said it rejected allegations of US government involvement in any conspiracy to destabilize the Venezuelan government.

On March 5, Maduro expelled two US military attaches hours before announcing the death of President Hugo Chavez, accusing them of promoting "destabilization projects."

Caracas and Washington have been without ambassadors since 2010, when late President Chavez refused to accept a newly named US ambassador to the country.
