Stop supporting Castro brothers

Former New York Times and Miami Herald reporter, Angel Castillo Jr., in TBN Weekly:

Stop supporting Castro brothers

http://www.floridavoices.com/sites/default/files/pictures/picture-106-1322077282.jpgIn the dying days of their failed communist revolution, Cuba’s Castro brothers, “President” Raul and dictator emeritus Fidel, have added a very useful Washington lobbyist to their roster of U.S. based propagandists.

She is Congresswoman Kathy Castor, a left-wing member of the Democratic Party from Tampa who, since 2007, represents the Tampa and St. Petersburg metropolitan areas. She believes that since 1959 the Castro brothers have merely conducted “an amazing experiment in communism that did not work” on the island.

For some time now, Castor, a 46-year-old lawyer, has been advocating on behalf of the termination of the U.S. trade embargo against Cuba, the No. 1 priority of the Castros. Of course, the embargo has long been a joke, with Cuba buying food and medicine directly from the U.S., and other goods indirectly through multiple corporations based in Panama and other opaque corporate havens.

Not only does Castor want the embargo to end, she also is advocating on behalf of other urgent Castro goals: remove Cuba from the list of countries that sponsor terrorism, increase commerce between Cuba and the U.S., and remove restrictions that keep American tourists from traveling freely to Cuba to spend Yankee dollars there.

Castor, however, does not call for Cuba to do anything at all in return for all the financial concessions that she wants the American taxpayers to generously lavish on the octogenarian oppressors of the Cuban people.

While she may not be required legally to register as a lobbyist for Cuba under the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938, Castor has certainly been acting like one, urging President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, among others, to make life easier for the Castros.
