JetBlue kicks off flights to Cuba–by proudly promoting terrorists (Che Guevara) responsible for the Hemisphere’s first and deadly airplane hijackings!


In November 1958 Cubana Airlines Flight 495 from Miami to Varadero, Cuba  was hijacked at gunpoint by terrorists belonging to Raul Castro and Che Guevara’s  July 26th Movement. The plane crashed into Nipe Bay in eastern Cuba killing 14 passengers. (This was one of five hijackings of Cuban planes that year by the terrorists who now run Cuba.) 


Here is how JetBlue is promoting their new flights for American passengers  from Miami to terror-sponsoring Cuba:

Welcome to Santa Clara, a university town that played host to the exploits of Marxist revolutionary Ernesto “Che” Guevara. The capital of the Villa Clara Providence (Yes! the JetBlue imbeciles actually use the word “providence,” instead of the proper province!) lies in central Cuba is a town that exudes a youthful, creative vibe:


Among the “exploits” of those cheeky Marxist revolutionaries so cheekily mentioned by JetBlue’s crackerjack and ultra-hip publicity dept. were the Western hemisphere’s first and deadliest airplane hijackings!.…so: “sit back! Relax! And enjoy your flight!…We thank you for choosing JetBlue!”


Here’s is how that “Marxist revolutionary” so cheekily mentioned by JetBlue’s ultra-hip publicty people viewed the fine folks who will be boarding those JetBlue flights from the U.S. to terror-sponsoring Cuba in order to further enrich its terrorist rulers:

“The U.S. is the great enemy of mankind!” (Che Guevara, 1961.)

“Against those hyenas (Americans) there is no option but extermination We will bring the war to the imperialist enemies’ very home, to his places of work and recreation. The imperialist enemy must feel like a hunted animal wherever he moves. Thus we’ll destroy him! We must keep our hatred against them [the U.S.] alive and fan it to paroxysms!” (Che Guevara, 1961.)


“If the nuclear missiles had remained (in Cuba) we would have fired them against the heart of the U.S. including New York City. The victory of socialism is well worth millions of Atomic victims.”(Che Guevara, 1962.)


So Again:  “Sit back! Relax! And enjoy your flight!…We thank you for choosing JetBlue!”

Ted Turner-Founded CNN (“Castro News Network”) Celebrates Fidel Castro’s Birthday

“Fidel Castro is one hell of a guy!” Ted Turner gushed to a capacity crowd at Harvard Law School during a speech in 1997. “You people would like him! Most people in Cuba like him.”

Within weeks CNN was granted its coveted Havana Bureau, the first ever granted by Castro to a foreign network. Bureau chief Lucia Newman (now with Al Jazeera) assured viewers, “CNN will be given total freedom to do what we want and to work without censorship.”

Hard-hitting stories immediately followed. To wit: CNN soon featured Fidel’s office in its “Cool Digs” segment of CNN’s “Newsstand.” “When was the last time you saw a cup full of pencils on the boss’s desk?” asked perky CNN anchor Steven Frazier. “And they do get used – look at how worn down the erasers are! Years ago, our host worked as an attorney, defending poor people. … He’s Fidel Castro, Cuba’s leader since 1959!”

Actually, CNN is upholding a long and sniveling tradition among networks. No serious Cuba-watcher expects a network bestowed a Havana bureau by KGB-trained apparatchiks to even feign honesty, or even play-act their professed duty: “to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.”

Given that the Castro regime has:

*Jailed and tortured political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin’s during the Great Terror.

*Murdered more Cubans in its first three years in power than Hitler’s murdered Germans during its first six.

*Converted a nation with a higher per-capita income than half of Europe and a huge influx of (first-world) immigrants into one that drove twenty times as many people to die attempting to escape it as died attempting to escape East Germany — and boasts the highest suicide rate in the Western Hemisphere.

(Everything above thoroughly-documented here.)


Given the above tally of the wantonly and horribly “afflicted” you might think CNN faced an easy job when reporting on Castro’s birthday, right? Think of all the riveting “human-interest” stories in that mix!

HAH!  Instead the only “afflicted” CNN chose to comfort was the agent of the horrors catalogued above.

Our friends at Frontpage Magazine help disseminate some items not well-understood outside the tiny Cuban-American informational ghetto.



All items above fully-documented in these internationally acclaimed books.


“Fontova’s book teaches us truths about Castro’s island that are very discomfiting for many intellectuals.” Ana Botella (Spain’s former First Lady while giving a book reading in Madrid, upon “Fidel; HFT” release in Spain)



Is the Trump Campaign’s New Hero (“I am a PATRIOT!–YOU are a TRAITOR! bellowed to CNN reporter) Cuban-American?



(On left: Attendee to Trump’s recent rally in Kissimmee Florida venting his feelings towards a CNN producer. On right: CNN founder on one of his many visits with his bosom friend. “Fidel Castro is one hell of a guy! “You people would like him!” (Ted Turner to a beaming crowd at Harvard Law School.)

All over social media he’s being called a “white trash-redneck!’ (As a compliment by Trumpistas as an insult by others.)

Not that there’s any inherent contradiction in the brands, but some of us think he might also be a Cuban-American.

“But he doesn’t LOOK Cuban?” Our American friends (who grew up outside Miami-Dade) will chant (because he doesn’t look like Pancho Villa , Cheech Marin or Speedy Gonzalez.) Hereabouts we WELL how that bromide goes by now–and of the innocence (ethno-historical ignorance) that inspires it .

In fact, to many Cuban-Americans, (and to their close American friends, in-laws, etc.)  he looks (and sounds) almost stereotypically Cuban-American.

So please help us here. Listen closely to the gentleman’s accent. Study his features, complexion, etc.(video here.)

Especially note that the object of his ire is CNN ( the “Castro-News-Network” as Cuban-Americans have been denouncing it for decades.)


Indeed, one such “WHITE-TRASH REDNECK!”devoted an entire chapter of one of his books to exposing and denouncing CNN’s romance with the Stalinist dictator who most craved to nuke CNN’s home country.)

Does anyone out there know this (now) famous attendee to Trump’s Kissimee rally? Does anyone know if he’s Cuban-American?  We invite all to participate: Trumpistas, non-Trumpistas, anti-Trump (we’re a BIG tent here at Babalu)….

No big deal. Just wondering if we might have another Cuban-American to add to the pantheon of  media celebrities: Desi Arnaz, Andy Garcia, Gloria Estefan, Sammy Davis Jr, Cameron Diaz, etc….?

Oh…and speaking of  “loud-mouthed white-trash rednecks who denounce CNN.”


“Humberto’s books read like my concerts sound!” (Ted Nugent)

When the U.S. was a “tourist playground” for Cubans (you read right right.)– WARNING! This wasn’t shown in Godfather 2!)

It was only in 1953 that the tide switched. Up until that year more Cubans had annually vacationed in the U.S. than did Americans in Cuba.( As befit this nation that boasted a larger middle-class than much of Europe at the time.) Tens of thousands of Cubans KEPT vacationing in the U.S. after 1953–but a SLIGHTLY larger number of Americans then started vacationing in Cuba.


But–per person– these American vacationers to Cuba spent LESS money on gambling in the (relative few) Cuban casinos than most Americans spend on gambling in Las Vegas)…..


This datum (so INFURIATING (!!!) to Castro and his network of agents-of-influence is fully-documented here:

One thing that AMAZED some Cuban vacationers to the U.S. and HORRIFED others was how how certain areas of the U.S. were essentially “run by the mob!!!”…..YIKES!!!

And how some of these areas–especially the French Quarter in New Orleans– featured live sex shows and rampant prostitution!…YIKES!!!  They even said one mobster ran Louisiana as his personal fiefdom with all the politicians in his pocket and getting a cut of his ill-gotten and vice-ridden gains!…YIKES!!!

“The U.S. might be a nice place to visit on vacation,” many of these Cuban vacationers gasped. “But we certainly wouldn’t want to live there!”





Food Channel and Travel Channel gleefully produce tourism commercial for grateful Stalinist regime that starves its subjects and outlaws travel



“Guy and his Triple D crew head to the land of Mojitos, cigars and classic cars to get a taste of Cuban cuisine!”
In 1958, by the way, Cubans enjoyed the 4th highest protein consumption in the Western hemisphere. Nowadays food is rationed at slave rates and the island is ravaged by nutritional diseases.

Think I exaggerate? Here’s the nourishment a slave on the Castro family plantation gets daily, as decreed by Castro family: 2 ounces of meat, 3 ounces of rice, and 6.5 ounces of starch and 1 ounce of beans.

Now here’s what the Spanish King had royally decreed as the daily rations for slaves in their Crown Jewel colony of Cuba in 1842:   8 ounces of meat, 4 ounces of rice, and 16 ounces of starch and 4 ounces of beans for all slaves in the Spanish colony of Cuba.

 Full documentation for the ghastly figures above found here:

This means, that Cuba’s literal slaves of almost two centuries ago ate better than the slaves on the Cuban plantation the Food Network rewarded with a rollicking tourism commercial.

Fortunately Cuba’s black market, and rampant dumpster-diving by Castro’s slaves takes up the considerable slack. Much of the dumpster diving takes place around the plantation’s tourist sites which were recently glorified by the Food Network.

Cubans who starved to death in Cuban mental hospital (not far from where Guy Fieri gorged on lobster with his communist apparatchik hosts, while producing a free tourism commercial for them.)
Desperate Cubans dumpster-diving for food around restaurants owned by communist apparatchiks and promoted in tourism commercials by the Food Network. 
(“Food is a weapon.” Stalin”s minister Maxim Litvinov)


“A great service for the cause of  human freedom. Deservedly puts Che Guevara in the ash-heap of history. Every American should read Humberto Fontova’s book.” (David Horowitz on Exposing The Real Che Guevara and the Useful Idiots Who Idolize Him.)

Hillary Clinton insults intelligence of even the brain-dead on Cuba Embargo (i.e. her plans to financially bail-out the Castro Family at U.S. taxpayer expense)

During the Meeting of the Western Hemisphere’s First Ladies  in Sept. of 1995 (Asuncion Paraguay) Hillary Clinton found herself  on the same bus with Vilma Espin (Raul Castro’s wife who served as Cuba’s “First Lady”). Here’s Hillary’s account of the incident from her book Living History:

“I spotted a seat next to an amiable looking lady with white hair. She looked familiar but I couldn’t remember who she was. I asked her how things were going in her homeland:

“Fine,” she said stone-faced. “Except for the embargo.” I had managed to seat myself next to Vilma Espin, Fidel Castro’s sister-in-law who was representing him at the Conference.”

From this exchange  (if true) wouldn’t a reasonable person conclude that the Castro regime was EXTREMELY DISPLEASED with the embargo?–which was apparently hampering their terror-sponsoring, repression, etc.? (which is exactly what “hard-liners” have always said.)

And yet at her speech at Council on Foreign Relations last year advocating the lifting of the (so-called) Cuba embargo, Clinton chants the age-old Liberal/Libertarian (and KGB-planted) bromide about the embargo serving as “Castro’s Best Friend, because it gives him and excuse…blah…blah…blah…”

Hillary Clinton, like few people, heard (almost literally) from the horse’s mouth that the embargo was very damaging to the Castro regime–indeed that it was probably their TOP headache and concern— something that rankled the Stalinist regime so deeply that complaints against it were the very first words out of the regime’s First Lady upon meeting a representative of the U.S.!

And yet, with a straight face, Hillary Clinton (to thunderous applause from America’s Best and Brightest at the Council on Foreign Relations) still claims the embargo is “Castro’s Best Friend.”

First off, if Castro “secretly favors the embargo,” then why did every one of his secret agents campaign secretly and obsessively AGAINST the embargo while working as secret agents?

From Cuban spies Ana Belen Montes to Carlos and Elsa Alvarez to Kendall and Gwendolyn Myers–all worked tirelessly to influence U.S. foreign policy AGAINST the embargo – while working as secret agents.

It’s one thing for some talking heads with their typically overworked and harried research staff to remain ignorant of these vital matters. But shouldn’t a former U.S. Secretary of State be familiar with matters so vital to U.S. security?


(But our professor and Hillary say the embargo is “Castro’s best friend”–so that settles it!)

(BTW, a couple weeks EARLIER  Hillary and Vilma had touched base the U.N.’s 4th annual Women’s Conference held in Beijing.)


“Absolutely devastating. An enlightening and shocking read you’ll never forget.” (David Limbaugh on Fidel; Hollywood’s Favorite Tyrant.)


“Le ZZZUMBA!!!”   


Carole King Sings “You’ve Got a Friend” to Hillary at the Democratic Convention–just like she sang it IN PERSON to Fidel Castro in 2002!



“She (Hillary Clinton) is warm and funny and smart and all of the things that people say that she is.  It is remarkable! It is wonderful, it was destined to happen!  I ran into some people who were staunch Bernie supporters and I was very respectful because I think he’s a great person. I just, again, know Hillary. I think it is her time. She’s earned it. She (Hillary Clinton) is absolutely the perfect person to break that barrier. “


“My songs were a message I wanted to bring here (to Fidel Castro),” stressed Carole King about her 60th Birthday celebration in Havana in the company of Fidel Castro,  (the jailer and torturer of the most blacks and women in the modern history of the Western Hemisphere–the person who most craved and came closest to nuking Carole King’s homeland–the person who came within a whisker of murdering thousands of King’s fellow New Yorkers in a bomb-plot against Macy’s, Gimball’s, Bloomingdale’s and Grand Central Station during the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade in 1962.  )


Not dat there’s anything (apparently) wrong with any of the above in liberal eyes! Because in appreciation for his crimes against humanity Carole King sang Fidel  Castro a personal and heartfelt You’ve Got a Friend on  Feb. 10, 2002.


“Yes, folks, (Book TV host on left REALLY wanted to say)…Everything about Carole King’s trip to Cuba and her serenading of Fidel Castro can be found –fully-documented–in Humberto’s internationally-acclaimed books. That’s the thing about this crazy Cuban-Cajun. Liberals and Castroites (but I repeat myself) denounce him as a “crackpot!” and “loose canon!” but his books have been published worldwide by the world’s biggest publishers, who all signed-off on his thorough documentation. His books have been hailed everyplace from Publishers Weekly to a division of the London Times to to Eastern Europe to FoxNews to the U.S. Congress to Spain and Brazil, etc…. But ONE place they haven’t been hailed is in: Havana Cuba!”




(“Humberto’s book is a very valuable book–a book badly needed around the world.” (Former Chairwoman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen R-Fla.)

Hillary Clinton and Vilma Espin (Raul Castro’s late wife) sitting in a tree K-I-S-S-I-N-G (almost literally!)


“Constant Craving…?”

(I wrote this article for Newsmax in 2007–but I see no reason to change a single word, especially in light of the events at last night’s Democratic Convention —also in light of  Wikileaks which show that Hillary Clinton pulled the strings (violating U.S. law) that strong-armed a U.S. visa for Vilma’s daughter, Mariela Castro, back in 2012. This allowed the Stalinist apparatchik to lecture about the glories of Cuban communism  from Sea to Shining Sea–(literally).  Mariela’s tour took her from San Francisco to New York….Le  ZZZUMBA!!!)


Vilma Espin (Raul Castro’s late wife and Cuba’s long-time “First Lady”) was Cuba’s delegate to the U.N.’s 4th annual Women’s Conference held in Beijing in September 1995, where she hob-knobbed with U.S. delegate Hillary Clinton. The Conference was sporadically televised so the ardor and duration of Hillary  Clinton’s greeting of Cuban delegate Vilma Espin was caught on film.

Those who saw it recall the salutation as involving more than the perfunctory peck on the cheek customary for new or even casual acquaintances.

Given their similar agenda’s for “villages and children,” socialized healthcare, wealth distribution– given the Clinton regime’s later kow-towing to the Castro regime by lending Castro the services of their crackerjack lawyer and friend, Gregory Craig, given the Clinton regime Shang-haing of Elian Gonzalez — given all this, enquiring minds can only speculate about the origin and inspiration for the Vilma-Hillary smoochfest.

Rest of the article here….

“Constant Craving…?”





“PLEASE calm down!–or I’ll call security on the CRAZY CUBAN!?” (says a badly-rattled Bill Maher)


“Highly entertaining!… Humberto Fontova’s voice is powerful and compelling…imagine Deliverance as written by Hunter S. Thompson!” (Publishers’s Weekly)


BREAKING!..Meet Trump’s advisor on Cuba (According to Bloomberg): the notorious Tony Zamora long ago EXPELLED from the Bay of Pigs Vets Assoc. for (essentially) serving as a Castro-regime agent!

Is Trump really seeking to buy and modernize Castro and Che’s favorite old golf course, and build others along with hotels?

The Bloomberg BusinessWeek story reports that:

“Some of Trump’s CLOSEST aides have been traveling to Cuba FOR YEARS scouting potential (golf course and hotel) sites and investments.” But it gets even  “better” :

“…Antonio Zamora, a well-known Cuban-American lawyer (and ex-Brigada 2506 member) , says he’s advised the Trump Organization on Cuba for about a decade, he and Russo visited a prospective golf site east of Havana in an area called Bello Monte several years ago...Zamora does say that he discussed with the Trump Organization the possibility of teaming up with a foreign company to give Trump a minority position in a (Cuban) venture. He says the deal failed to materialize.”

(Warning: Bloomberg Businessweek is fanatically anti-Cuba embargo (i.e. PRO U.S. business partnerships with the Castro family and military.)  Canadian Stephen Wicary, who now lives in Cuba and contributed to their story, is essentially a Castro-regime propagandist, as revealed by my old Canadian chum Ezra Levant. We even did a Sun News show about Wicary’s swinishness. So this is clearly a case of “doth protesting too much,” from the sources. Futhermore, their motives are obviously contrary to those of most Babalusians, as recently qualified by our Prof Carlos Eire….Still and all, this story merits attention, especially as it seems to jive with Trump’s clipped and very circumspect comments regarding Cuba. It’s obviously a subject Trump is uncomfortable discussing, which may account for why he TWICE stood-up his Cuban-American supporters who planned to greet him at Versailles.)

On left: Ex-Brigada 2506 member Antonio Zamora (in Havana surrounded by Communist apparatchiks),  showing off his Cuban passport gleefully issued to him by Cuba’s Stalinist regime. (Pic was taken in Havana in 2004, well before such things were considered “cool” for historic exiles.)

On right: Antonio Zamara hob-knobbing with Sylvia “Flippity” Wilhelm, Hugo Cancio and Arturo Lopez “Levy” Callejas–none of whom needs further introduction hereabouts, I hope.

The President of the Bay of Pigs Veterans Association (and the man who played a key role in capturing Che Guevara) who I also consider a friend (YES, I’m a shameless name-dropper)–Felix Rodriguez confirmed to me that Antonio Zamora was expelled from the Bay of Pigs Veterans Association (by overwhelmingly vote of the members) for his years of relentlessly visiting Cuba (not for bogus “family visits” but as an honored guest of the Stalinist regime) and relentlessly serving the propaganda and financial interests of the Castro regime. In fact, the Castro regime is so grateful they even restored Antonio Zamora’s “Cuban” (Castro-fiefdom) citizenship.

Nobody ever called Trump dumb. When he was exploring a presidential run in 1999 (and Cuban-Americans were a crucial and cohesive voting bloc) among Trump’s VERY FIRST visits was to Miami and to the Bay of Pigs Vets museum (seen above) where he really laid it on–hitting all the hottest buttons!

Well…from honoring them with a visit and eulogizing them with a speech–to (if Bloomberg is correct) secretly scheming a business deal with their Communist enemy in cahoots with a man they expelled from their organization in rage and disgust….well, nobody ever called Donald Trump dumb.

Maybe Trump simply knows which way the winds are blowing business-wise?…

“Le  ZZZUMBA!!!”


JUST OUT: Republican Platform will TERRIFY Castro regime and their vast and well-funded network of U.S. agents (i.e. anti-embargo lobbyists.)


Si ganan los Republicanos estamos bien jodidos…” (if the Republicans win we’re f**ked!–party’s OVER!)

In fact: all a Republican President need do is to start undoing Obama’s executive orders (i.e. start enforcing the U.S. Constitution) and the Castro family’s current economic lifeline (enabled by Obama) will  stop gushing and start coughing and sputtering…then trickling. This is what has the Castro family’s vast network of U.S. agents and agents-of-influence working triple-time for Hillary’s election. Just look at a few highlights from the just announced Republican Party Platform for 2016:



“Today (July 18, 2016) delegates to the Republican National Convention adopted the official 2016 Platform of the party.  The Platform declares the Party’s principles and policies.

The Republican Party is energized to lead a turnaround from the failed policies of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, and this platform provides a thorough look at how we will restore prosperity and security to our country.”


We believe in American exceptionalism. We believe America is exceptional because of our historic role — first as refuge, then as defender, and now as exemplar of liberty for the world to see…We believe in the Constitution as our founding document. We believe the Constitution was written not as a flexible document, but as our enduring covenant.


We want to welcome the people of Cuba back into our hemispheric family — after their corrupt rulers are forced from power and brought to account for their crimes against humanity.”

“We stand with the Ladies in White and all the victims of the loathsome regime that clings to power in Havana. We do not say this lightly: They have been betrayed by those who are currently in control of U.S. foreign policy.


The current Administration’s ‘opening to Cuba’ was a shameful accommodation to the demands of its tyrants. It will only strengthen their military dictatorship. We call on the Congress to uphold current U.S. law which sets conditions for the lifting of sanctions on the island.”







Who said it? Libertarian candidate for POTUS Gary Johnson? Cuban agent of influence Julia Sweig? or Convicted Cuban Spy Ana Montes?


“With regard to flights to Cuba? You know, I’m—I’m in favor, I think, of the whole notion that trade promotes friendship, as opposed to not. So I would be inclined to looking at establishing or supporting those kinds of flights.

Easing restrictions and opening the door to broader economic and cultural relations with Cuba is the right thing to do — and long overdue…open communications and opportunities for the Cuban people to see the benefits of a less antagonistic relationship with the U.S. will accomplish that which five decades of barriers clearly has not accomplished….Congress should act to remove the barriers the President cannot remove administratively, and end the failed policy of trying to reform another nation by isolating it.” (Libertarian Candidate for POTUS Gary Johnson.)


Actually Castro regime agents  Julia Sweig and Ana Montes usually worded it differently– but they work(ed) for the identical goal regarding Cuba as Gary Johnson espouses and Obama implements.

And it’s a bit late in the game to be “playing dumb” about the effects of  foreign investment (massive since 1994) and U.S. travel (started in 1978) into Cuba . In brief: the verdict has LONG been in:

Record foreign investment, record tourism = record repression for the Cuban people &  more brazen and unabated terror-sponsoring by the regime.

If Gary Johnson has been actually paying attention to the Cuba issue and still espouses an end to the so-called embargo–then he’s an idiot.

If he hasn’t been paying attention to issues regarding the terror-sponsor and intelligence-trafficker 90 miles from our shores then he’s an idiot...either way, this imbecile as Commander in Chief would be a DISASTER!


No doubt Libertarianism is kinda warm, kinda fuzzy and kinda fun–but most people grow out of it. Then look back and laugh. 


But if they don’t–it’s POINTLESS  presenting real world facts to them…believe me!

Che Guevara–the Murdering Coward, the Failure and Fraud–Exposed at YAF Presentation July 15th (His enablers and fans will also be mercilessly lampooned.)

TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY GABRIEL RUBIO GIRON (FILES) A picture taken on October 10, 1967 shows the body of Ernesto "Che" Guevara, the Argentine-born hero of Latin American revolutionaries is on public display in Vallegrande. Lost for half a century, historic photographs of Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara taken by an AFP photographer shortly after his execution have come to light in a small Spanish town. The photographs belong to Imanol Arteaga, a local councillor in the northern Spanish town of Ricla. He inherited them from his uncle Luis Cuartero, a missionary in Bolivia in the 1960s. AFP PHOTO/ MARC HUTTEN

On July 15th, the YAF (Young America’s Foundation) kicks off their rollicking Road to Freedom seminars at their headquarters in Virginia.

This year, in addition to the seminar’s invaluable instruction (or reminder) of the historic role of free-markets with human freedom and of socialism with slavery, the rollicking event will feature a methodical, merciless (and hilarious) “deconstruction” of the world’s top symbol of socialism: Che Guevara.


Che Guevara was monumentally vain and epically stupid. He was shallow, boorish, cruel and cowardly. He was full of himself, a consummate fraud and an intellectual vacuum. He was intoxicated with a few vapid slogans, spoke in clichés and was a glutton for publicity.

But ah! He did come out nice in a couple of publicity photos, high cheekbones and all! And we wonder why he’s a hit in Hollywood?


“Che excelled in one thing: mass murder of defenseless men. He was a Stalinist to the core, a plodding bureaucrat and a calm, cold-blooded – but never in actual battle – killer. His pathetic whimpering while dropping his fully-loaded weapons as two Bolivian soldiers approached him on Oct. 8 1967 (“Don’t shoot!” I’m Che!” I’m worth more to you alive than dead!”) proves that this cowardly, murdering, bumbling doofus and swine was unfit to carry his victims’ slop buckets.”

The SCAM of Cuban Socialism–EXPOSED in ROLLICKING SEMINAR by Young America’s Foundation this week!!

yaf-roadto freedom

The SCAM(!!!) of the “guerrilla war” that brought the Castro Brothers and Che Guevara to power!

The SCAM(!!!) of pre-Castro Cuba as an “impoverished mob-run banana-republic!”

The  SCAM(!!!) of Che Guevara as a hot-shot “Guerrilla fighter!”

The SCAM (!!!) of how “Yankee bullying pushed Castro into the arms of the Russians!”

The SCAM (!!!) of Cuba’s “Free and Fabulous HealthCare and Education!”

The SCAM (!!!) of how the “Cuba Embargo has failed!”

The SCAM (!!!) of  “Raul Castro the free-market reformer!”

All these SCAMS (!!!) and many, MANY more exposed next Saturday at a ROLLICKING (!!!)  Seminar at the headquarter of the Young America’s Foundation!…Be There or be SQUARE!!!”

Not everyone is happy with this development:




“Americans enabled CORRUPTION in pre-Castro Cuba,” (Hillary Clinton and Loretta Lynch enabler, Barack Obama)


Before 1959, some Americans saw Cuba as something to exploit, ignored poverty, enabled corruption. (Hillary Clinton and Loretta Lynch enabler Barack Obama, March 22, Havana Cuba.)



“There has never been any man or woman more qualified for this office than Hillary Clinton, ever! And that’s the truth!” (Barack Obama at Hillary Clinton rally, July 5, 2016.)

“EEEEEW!!!…Just think of all those sleazebag politicians who ran pre-Castro Cuba! That musta been an AWFUL place!–right Raul?!”

“Humberto Fontova is a gifted polemicist who pulls no punches. A great service for liberty, justice and truth.” (The Weekly Standard  on Fidel; Hollywood’s Favorite Tyrant.)



A Cuban family’s First 4th of July in 1962–(When “refugees” were ACTUALLY refugees!)


Last pic in Havana , Oct. 1961.

(New Orleans, 2013.)

“WAIT-A-MINUTE?!” gasps Tom Petty. “Ya mean you guys actually HAD TO LIVE LIKE REFUGEES?!”

All the “POPS!” and “BANGS!” from fireworks had my single (for the time) mother edgy. Firing-squads had been murdering thousands of Cubans ‘round the clock. Other thousands of Cubans waged a lonely and hopeless guerrilla war against the massively-armed forces of Soviet proxies Che Guevara and the Castro brothers.

All this drama was taking place 90 miles from U.S. shores—not that anyone would know from the “reporting” by the U.S. media. From these intrepid gumshoes Americans mostly learned of Castro’s heart-warming “literacy campaign,” as transcribed from Cuba’s KGB-mentored propaganda ministry. 

All those bombs and gunshots were only months distant on July 4th, 1962–the Fontova family’s first Fourth in the U.S. We landed in south Louisiana, deepest, darkest Dixie. Castro’s propaganda constantly hammered that such areas of the U.S. were infested essentially by “gun and Bible-clinging people with ingrained antipathy to people who aren’t like them.” In the following five decades this dovetailing of Castroite and Democratic “talking points” became very noticeable to Cubans in the U.S.

But refugees can’t be choosy….OH!…and by the way: today’s lavish federal refugee “benefits” amount annually to more than the family above managed to scrounge from private sector jobs for probably the first five years of their exile….LE ZZZUMBA!!! (and this datum probably applies to ALL Cuban refugees of the time.)…
