On Obama’s orders, Top Cuban Military and Intelligence officials given in-depth educational tour of vital U.S. Defense facilities


Until last year some KGB-trained Cuban spies (The WASP network) were serving life sentences in maximum security U.S. federal prisons after convictions for attempting to gather information on this vital facility for U.S. security located in Key West.



Last month—on Obama’s orders, and owing to his “engagement” with terror-sponsoring, drug-running Cuba–—4  top Cuban Military and Intelligence officials (probably the very ones to whom the WASP spies reported) were given an in-depth educational tour and a detailed briefing of this same vital  Defense Dept. facility—described as the U.S. Defense Department’s “command center on the war on drugs.”  


Cuban security officials toured Key-West Drug War Center

A delegation of Cuban government national security officials recently toured the Pentagon’s counter-drug center in Key West — a first, signaling a nascent effort in U.S.-Cuban security cooperation, the admiral in charge of the U.S. Southern Command disclosed Wednesday.

Navy Adm. Kurt Tidd described the effort to crack down on illegal trafficking in the Caribbean as an “area of mutual interest” between the two nations that restored diplomatic relations July 20, 2015.

…….Oh!…and by the way,: “Cuba is intelligence trafficker to the world” stresses recently retired spycatcher Col. Chris Simmons of the Defense Intelligence Agency. “Chris Simmons.  Among many others, the U.S. military secrets stolen by Castro’s spies have been sold to former regimes in Iraq, Panama and Grenada, alerting these dictatorships to U.S. military plans against them and costing untold American lives.

……..Oh!…and by the way, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency attributes half the world’s cocaine supply to Colombia’s FARC. 

……..Oh!…and by the way, the FARC’s late commander Tiro-Fijo is on record as boasting: “Thanks to Fidel Castro we became a powerful army.”

……..Oh!…and by the way, in July 1996, U.S. prosecutors  informed the Miami Herald that: “The case we have against Raul Castro right now (for drug-trafficking) is much stronger than the one we had against Manuel Noriega in 1988.

……..Oh!…and by the way, JUST LAST MONTH a Cuban ship was caught red-handed trying to smuggle 400 kilos of Cocaine to Belgium. (but since this news item made Obama look like an utter fool–if not something worse–it was kept very hush-hush by his lapdog mainstream media.)

“The discovery by Panamanian police of more than 400 kilograms of cocaine in a Cuban ship on its way to Belgium received little media coverage in the United States. The drugs, hidden among tanks of sugarcane honey, were found at the Panamanian Caribbean port of Colón by Panamanian Police Intelligence agents…Panamanian sources point out that the episode resembles the 2013 Cuban shipment of warplanes and missiles under tons of Cuban sugar on a North Korean cargo vessel to Pyongyang…”
OH!..and by the WAY:  “War with the U.S. is my true destiny!” (Fidel Castro, April 1958.)

Had the Castro brothers prevailed, both Pearl Harbor and 9-11 would seem trivial (Let’s honor the freedom-fighters who–to their last bullets–fought these Stalinist-terrorists –(instead of insulting them, as does the Democrat Party.)


“Wimps!..that’s right WIMPS!” Michael Moore oinks against the Bay of Pigs Freedom-fighters. “These Cuban exiles, for all their chest-thumping and terrorism, are really just a bunch of WIMPS! …Ex Cubans with a YELLOW STRIPE DOWN THEIR BACKS and CRYBABIES TOO!”


(Michael Moore  picks his nose on national TV…Oh! Sorry. He’s the one on the right.)

At the Bay of Pigs they fought to the last bullet against 20-1 odds –battling the enemy that most craved and came closest to destroying the U.S.  Finally captured (after expending all their ammo and with no more coming) their communist captors demanded they sign a denunciation of the U.S. (i.e. of the nation that had just stabbed them in the back.)

They (mostly civilians with little to no no military training) all refused. So their communist captors assured them that such a denunciation would save them from the torture and firing squads they assumed was coming.


Again they refused. “We will die with dignity!” snapped their commander Erneido Oliva at his FURIOUS Castroite captors again, and again, and again. To a Castroite such an attitude not only enrages but baffles. In brief, (though not even U.S. citizens yet) these betrayed men stood tall, proud and defiant. They refused to utter the very insults against the U.S. that Michael Moore makes a career of oinking for gratuitous pleasure and free publicity.


(Above: Michael Moore picks his nose on national TV)


“Florida’s Cubans” continues Michael Moore in his book, “Downsize This,” are responsible for “sleaze in American politics. In every incident of national torment that has deflated our country for the past three decades…Cuban exiles are always present and involved!”


As a reward for fighting America’s most rabid enemy to their last bullet–and for refusing to insult the U.S. even under threat of firing squad–as a reward for this behavior America’s majority political party (Democrat) honored the man who spits on the memory of these freedom-fighters, their sacrifices and their families (Michael Moore.) This nauseating slob was feted as guest of honor in a skybox during the Democratic party’s  2004 national convention, where he sat next to Jimmy Carter.

“What?!” Khrushchev gasped on Oct. 28th 1962, as recalled by his son Sergei.


“Is he (Fidel Castro) proposing that we start a nuclear war? That we launch missiles from Cuba?…But that is INSANE!..Remove them (our missiles) as soon as possible! Before it’s too late. Before something terrible happens!” commanded the Soviet premier.





“I read  Humberto Fontova’s book in two sittings. I couldn’t put it down.” (Mark Levin on Exposing the Real Che Guevara.)

Eisenhower’s Great Victory! (The Cuba Embargo–helped Bankrupt the Soviet Union and saved the U.S. taxpayer $ BILLIONS!)


On Oct. 1960 President  Eisenhower imposed the first economic sanctions against the thieving, mass-murdering Stalinists who (still) run Cuba. These sanctions grew into one of the CROWN JEWELS of recent U.S. foreign policy–in brief: a ROLLICKING SUCCESS STORY!  


The Castros (the world’s most brazen and notorious deadbeat/crooks)   plundered from practically every taxpayer on earth (i.e. residents of nations whose leaders sold Cuba on credit.) So they rant and rave against the U.S. imposed “embargo.”  Their propaganda auxliairies (Media,Democrats, Libertarians, Think Tanks) all dutifully rant and rave against the “embargo.” But it’s thanks to this “embargo” that the Castro regime’s murdering, thieving paws never got close to the wallets of the U.S. taxpayer!


The Soviets ranted and raved against the so-called Cuba embargo. They were desperate to snooker the U.S. into bankrolling their most loyal  terror-sponsoring satrap. Nothing doing!–thanks to the embargo! So the Soviets were forced to pump almost Ten Marshall plans ($50 billion) into Castro’s Cuba– a key element in finally bankrupting the Bolshevik empire!

Profiles in Hypocrisy and Swinishness ( this week’s pick: Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who thunders against business with Iran–but visits Cuba to expand business deals with Iran’s closest ally.)

(Cuba’s KGB-founded and mentored media hails Texas Gov. Greg Abbot’s groveling sales call to their Stalinist, terror-sponsor nation 4 months ago.

Now here’s Republican Gov.  Greg Abbott from today:

In a letter to President Barack Obama, Gov. Greg Abbott on Monday rejected calls to lift state sanctions against Iran, instead insisting that Texas will put ADDITIONAL restrictions on investing and doing business in the Middle Eastern country.
“Texas is absolutely committed to maintaining its sanctions against Iran.

I strongly oppose the Iran deal….Entering into an agreement with a country that consistently calls for ‘death to America’ and repeatedly articulates anti-Semitic policies is short-sighted and ignores geopolitical realities..…your administration was able to implement the Iran deal only through the use of false pretenses.  Since your letter arrived, multiple news outlets have reported that one of your chief national security advisors has admitted to leveraging creative storytelling techniques to deceive the  American public regarding the details of the Iran deal.

(This identical “creative storyteller” (Ben Rhodes) crafted Obama’s Cuba deal (swindle) right down to dotting the last i’s and crossing the last t’s, as recently revealed by Capitol Hill Cubans. 

Now here’s  Republican Gov. Abbott from Dec. 2015, just after his visit to terror-sponsoring Cuba and meeting with the Stalinist regime’s apparatchiks (who also happen to be among Iran’s closest allies)


(Above right: Texas Gov. Abbott with a baseball autographed by Nolan Ryan which he gratefully presented as a gift to Cuban Communist apparatchiks in Havana. ) 

“One of my goals (said Abbott) was to work with Cuban leaders and Cuban business owners to find ways that Texas can capitalize on the growing economic opportunity….Opening the door to business with Texas will expand free enterprise and the freedom that flows from it. I look forward to expanding business opportunities for both Texas and Cuba.”

The Kardashians campaign against cruelty (to animals)

In case you hadn’t heard, the same Kardashians who just proudly produced a free tourism commercial for a Stalinist regime that jailed and tortured more political prisoners per-capita than did Stalin’s itself –these same Kardashians also produce commercials berating  people who mistreat quadrupeds….

The Stalinist regime that Khloe Kardashain honored by posing under the name of its co-founder murdered more political prisoners in its first three years in power than did Hitler’s in its first six…

The Stalinist regime the Kardashians honored and did volunteer work for caused an estimated 100,000 deaths…Many, many of these were women and children who died horribly of  drowning, thirst, exposure or eaten alive by sharks….

Passengers on Carnival ship to Cuba plagued with diarrhea/vomiting (“gastro-intestinal ailments.”) Cuba’s world-famed healthcare authorities strangely mum

che laughgif

Remember, amigos. As we heard repeatedly from Carnival spokespersons, the Adonia’s cruise to Cuba was an educational–NOT recreational!–cruise. In keeping with this noble goal, the cruise featured “on-board educational workshops on Cuban history.” Then in Cuba itself the Stalinist regime’s own veteran communist propagandists (instead of the eager amateurs  on-board) took over as tour guides. Undoubtedly both sets of educators regaled the lucky  passengers with endless tributes to Cuba’s world-famed healthcare and sanitation. 


(Genuine Adonia Cuba cruise passenger upon disembarking back in Miami yesterday.)

Above we see one of the first passengers  (a hyena?) to disembark from the cruise ship Adonia back in Miami yesterday. So can anyone doubt that both the on-board and the Cuba-based tour guides amply earned their pay?

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

“Against those hyenas (Americans) there is no option but extermination!” (Che Guevara, 1961.)

“We must keep our hatred (against the U.S.) alive and fan it to paroxysm!” (Che Guevara, 1965.)

“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.)

Wouldn’t you KNOW it ?!!  Seems Carnival’s on-board educational workshops SOMEHOW omitted this book!… Despite the international acclaim! 


Unfortunately for the passenger pictured further above, a few hours earlier, Babalu Blog’s ingenuously-hidden video cameras (we received invaluable tutelage from a Castro secret-police defector) captured her and some fellow passengers in less picturesque poses:


As the media is actually reporting:

“While heading back to Miami, there were reports that several passengers were sick…Fourteen passengers reported being sick with stomach-related symptoms….Carnival released a statement confirming that fourteen passengers were recovering, according to the doctor on the ship.”

“Reading this book caused my heart to race and bile to rise. Here in Bulgaria most the items disclosed by Humberto Fontova were completely unknown.” — (Professor Todor Tanev, former Rector, Univ. of Sofia and until recently Bulgaria’s Minister of Education.)

Kardashians, Kanye West, Gisele Bundchen, Karl Lagersfeld (the cream of the world’s most beautiful and coolest people!) produce tourism commercial for most racist, misogynistic, homophobic regime in recent history

“The negro is lazy and indolent, spending his money on frivolities and drink.”  ( Che Guevara.)

Well, Che? What about Armenian-Americans?….any thoughts?

You KNEW it was coming, amigos!  On the heels of Obama, The Rolling Stones and Karl Lagerfeld and Gisele Bundchen, the Kardashians have burst upon the coolest scene on earth: Stalinist/Apartheid Cuba!


So what’s important to “cool” people? What do they always make a major media spectacle of denouncing? Well, let’s see?….right off the top of my head…seems like:

*Any (supposed) infringement of the rights of Blacks, Women and Gays, sure seems to get them riled up for the nearest paparazzi, right?


OK, so what makes Cuba currently “coolest place on earth?”–hosting a Chanel fashion extravaganza and the world’s coolest people?…Well, best we can figure it’s:

*Jailing and torturing the most an longest suffering black political prisoners in the modern history of the Western Hemisphere–many more than in Apartheid South Africa in fact.


*Jailing and torturing the most and longest suffering women political prisoners in the modern history of the Western Hemisphere.


*Jailing and torturing the most gays  (and suspected gays)  in the modern history of the Western Hemisphere.

Carnival Cruise Ship Adonia arrives in Cuba on “Educational Travel”–NOT TOURISM! (So here’s some education on the very first historic site on the cruise!)

carnival havana

(From the AP: “The (Carnival Cruise)trips include on-board workshops on Cuban history and culture and tours of the cities that allow the trip to qualify as “people-to-people” educational travel, avoiding a ban on pure tourism that remains part of U.S. law.”)

che laughgifcarnivaldocks2

There it is on your left, Carnival cruisers!…A famous historic site! Right next to El Morro castle! That’s Fortaleza de San Carlos de la Cabaña (Fort of Saint Charles) better known by many of the folks around Carnival’s Miami headquarters as La Cabaña!


Call us crazy–but for some reason here at Babalu Blog we’re kinda guessing Carnival’s “educational workshops” “overlooked” some important historic items relating to the VERY FIRST  Cuban historic landmark you fine folks viewed!– even before the Adonia docked! Yes! La Cabaña! there on your left as you entered Havana Harbor! !


It was here that, promptly upon entering Havana in January 1959,  Che Guevara set up his firing-squad mass-murder central! Yes, amigos! 


Your Cuban hosts ( the ones you’re enriching during this cruise) murdered more political prisoners in their first three years in power (out of a population of 6.4 million) than Hitler’s regime murdered in it’s first six (out of a population of 70 million)!  Hundreds of these were murdered RIGHT THERE on your left in La Cabaña!


Upon your return to Miami you can greatly enhance this educational tour by visiting some of the (symbolic) graves of these murdered Cubans at Miami’s Memorial Cubano!’

Former CIA station-chief in Cuba bashes Fontova’s book (because it exposes how the CIA BACKED Castro and Che Guevara!)



On right: Raul Castro and the CIA’s Robert Weicha shake on a deal in 1958 (the “deal” was a scheme concocted by  Raul and Che Guevara’s KGB case-officer (Nikolai Leonov) which made monkeys of the CIA and opened the path for the Communist takeover of Cuba.) 

che laughgif
Upon instructions from his KGB handler Nikolai Leonov in June of 1958, communist terrorist Raul Castro dutifully kidnapped 47 American hostages from the Moa Nickel plant and Guantanamo base in Oriente. The KGB-mentored plan was to blackmail the U.S. government to further pull the rug out from Batista and ease the way for the Sovietization of Cuba–and it worked splendidly. Above we see crackerjack CIA officer in Santiago, Cuba Robert Weicha and Raul Castro shake on the deal that freed the U.S. hostages. (i.e. that saw a clueless U.S. submitting to shameless KGB-directed blackmail.)

(Above left: Raul Castro eagerly employing the state of the art equipment provided to his KGB-directed terror-group by the CIA to launch Radio Rebelde, where these Stalinist-terrorists broadcast their fervent abhorrence of Communism and anything related to it.  On right: retired KGB-officer Nikolai Leonov is a frequent guest on Cuban TV where he and Raul fondly reminisce (we imagine) about the monkeys they made of the CIA, especially (we imagine) CIA officer Robert D. Chapman who was assigned to the area where Raul Castro operated.

Top left: Che Guevara takes his turn broadcasting his fealty to liberty, justice and and democracy on radio equipment provided him by our crackerjack CIA (i.e. your taxpayer dollars, amigos.) On right. Raul Castro and his old KGB case-officer Nikolai Leonov continue fondly reminiscing–between guffaws.

 Writing in the prestigious International Journal of Intelligence and CounterIntelligence (Volume 27, Issue 2, 2014) the man who served as the CIA’s crackerjack station chief in Santiago Cuba (the area where Raul Castro operated) from 1957-60 Robert D. Chapman bashes my book The Longest Romance pretty severely. In the official journal of American Center for Democracy he titles the same review: Righting Cuban History.”

Gee? Now what could possibly have motivated him?

Well, let’s see; my earlier book Fidel: Hollywood’s Favorite Tyrant included a chapter very subtly titled, “Stupid Liberals in the CIA.” My latest book includes the following items:


“Me and my staff were all Fidelistas,” boasted Robert Reynolds, the CIA’s “Caribbean Desk’s specialist on the Cuban Revolution” from 1957-1960.

Everyone in the CIA and everyone at State was pro-Castro, except (Republican) ambassador Earl Smith.” (CIA operative in Santiago Cuba 1957’59, Robert Weicha.)

“Don’t worry. We’ve infiltrated Castro’s guerrilla group in the Sierra Mountains. The Castro brothers and Ernesto “Che” Guevara have no affiliations with any Communists whatsoever.” (crackerjack Havana CIA station chief Jim Noel 1958.)

In the fall of ’57, the CIA smuggled into Cuba the state-of-the-art transmitters that became Castro and Che’s “Radio Rebelde” From these mics, the Castroites broadcast their “guerrilla victories” island-wide, along with their plans to uplift Cuba into a Caribbean Shangri-La.

“Without U.S. help Fidel Castro would never have gotten into power,” flatly testified former U.S. Ambassador to Cuba, Earl T. Smith during Congressional testimony in 1960… “The State Department played a large part in bringing Castro to power. The press, and the Chief of the CIA Section and other U.S. Government agencies also responsible…we (the U.S.) are responsible for bringing Castro in power. I do not care how you want to word it.”

Interestingly, former Santiago CIA station-chief Robert D. Chapman–while claiming I’m rewriting Cuban History–does not directly challenge  the veracity (much less refute) any of the quotes or other items about the CIA which I expose in my book!!!

Here’s Mr Chapman’s rebuttal to my fully-documented charges: “This information (Fontova’s) conflicts with everything ever written about Herbert Matthews’s journey to Castro.”

Yes, Mr Chapman: THAT’S THE ENTIRE RATIONALE FOR MY BOOK!!!–(i.e. correcting the commonly-accepted media bullshit regarding the Cuban Revolution.)


My sources for the items that (so understandably offend and embarrass  Chapman) are the sworn testimony of a U.S. ambassador to Cuba and the accounts from one of pre-Castro’ Cuba’s most respected political figures (Carlos Marquez-Sterling.)

But apparently crackerjack CIA intelligence sleuth Robert D. Chapman still prefers the word of the Julio 26 Movement! Apparently nothing in the intervening 57 years has caused Mr Chapman to question the veracity of the claims made by the folks (The Castro brothers, Vilma Espin, and the rest of Castro’s 26 Julio movement operatives in Oriente) he believed wholeheartedly from 1957-60!

Chapman also questions many other fully-documented items in my book, most notably the Castro regime’s death toll. True to form, Chapman still prefers the word of the Julio 26 Movement to the documentation of such as the Cuba archive.

Here’s some background on Chapman as provided by NPR, where he was a guest Cuba “expert” :

Robert Chapman, the chief CIA officer in Santiago, was on his first field assignment when he arrived in 1957 and found himself in the center of a revolution.

“I knew everybody in town, more or less,” Chapman says. “The press was coming through. I would brief them on security, and I later found that my name was posted in the New York Press Club. If you’re going to see Castro, see Bob, you know?”

In other words, CIA station chief Chapman was probably the official facilitator/travel agent for such as Herbert Matthews, Robert Taber, etc. to “interview” Castro!



Media AGOG (!!!) over “Papa Hemingway in Cuba—First Hollywood Movie shot in Cuba since 1959–and True-Story!”

The mainstream media is absolutely AGOG(!!!) over this movie-making “milestone,” amigos!


(Media reacts to new movie about Hemingway in Cuba ) 

“That the movie was made at all during the economic embargo was a feat of diplomacy, financial and otherwise,” (Helen Verongos, the New York Times.

“Production values and on-location filming enhance the period flavor of “Papa: Hemingway in Cuba.” The scenes inside the Hemingways’ home were filmed at the real Finca La Vigia, which has been restored as a museum.” (Joe Leydon, Variety.)

“Getting it (the movie) made against the backdrop of the U.S. embargo against Cuba required years of dedicated effort by director Bob Yari.” (Eliza Berman, Time.)

For the benefit of the agog let’s flesh out this column’s title a bit and see if  just maybe they can wrap their heads around this earth-shaking “milestone.” To wit:

A KGB-founded and mentored totalitarian regime whose founder boasted, “propaganda is the vital heart of our struggle,” who the CIA pegs with “creating the most effective propaganda empire in the Western Hemisphere,”  whose KGB- mentored  secret police meticulously vet every single visa applicant—especially journalists, academics and filmmakers –this very regime SOMEHOW permitted  a Hollywood production crew on its sovereign soil!


Furthermore, this Stalinist regime’s military and secret police own the nation’s tourism facilities almost lock, stock and barrel. Ernest Hemingway’s haunts –from El Floridita bar to the Ernest Hemingway Marina to his former home Finca Vigia itself–rank among the Stalinist nation’s top tourist attractions.


…….And OH! ….Almost forgot: Recently declassified Soviet documents document how the subject of the film also served as an eager (but bumbling) KGB agent.

OK, ready media movie critic geniuses?!….Good. Now put on your thinking caps. Start gulping your favorite cognition–enhancing organic green tea! Twist yourselves into your favorite cognition-enhancing lotus position….ready?


You have three hours to formulate your answer to this question: “given the above can you perhaps guess why Cuba’s Stalinist authorities JUST MIGHT have rolled out the red carpet for these movie producers?…and why the Stalinist regime’s media is promoting it?


….Didn’t  think so.

This “TRUE STORY!” by the way has the March 1957 attack on Cuba’s Palacio Nacional to try and assassinate Batista carried out by Castro’s July 26 movement (instead of by the Directorio Revolucionario Estudiantil, which was in fact a RIVAL to Castro’s terrorist group.)

This “TRUE STORY!” also has “J. Edgar Hoover  investigating Hemingway–not because Hemingway was a full-flegded KGB agent, which of course is never mentioned in the movie–but because Hemingway had the goods on Hoover as a secret transgender dresser and flaming sodomite!

Fortunately, almost unanimously the critics are slamming the movie–not because of its historical imbecilities, of which the critics are utterly oblivious–but as as work of art. So hey! Let’s cross our fingers…just maybe this movie won’t replace Godfather II as America’s top educational source on pre-Castro Cuba!



“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.)

How Ernest Hemingway literally “drank” to Fidel Castro and Che Guevara’s firing squad murder marathons



“Castro’s revolution is very pure and beautiful. I’m encouraged by it. The Cuban people now have a decent chance for the first time. The people getting shot all deserve it.” (Ernest Hemingway, 1960)


“Hemingway knew full well what was going on behind the scenes of Castro and Che’s “pure and beautiful” revolution. Accounts of  “Papa” Hemingway’s eager presence at many of the Katyn-like massacres of untried Cubans comes courtesy of Hemingway’s own friend, the late George Plimpton (not exactly an “embittered right-wing Cuban exile”)  who worked as editor of the Paris Review, (not exactly a “Mc Carthyite  scandal sheet.”)

“They (Hemingway and his chums) got out, set up chairs and took out the drinks, as if they were going to watch the sunset. Soon, a truck arrived with the trussed up victims and the firing squads got busy as Hemingway sipped his Daiquiris…”


Full documentation for Hemingway as gleeful and drunken voyeur at Castro and Che’s mass-murders–along with full-documentation for his stint as a full-fledged KGB agent– provided here: 

Oh!….And don’t forget Andy Garcia’s upcoming movie GLORIFYING Castro-pal and KGB agent Ernest Hemingway! http://oceandrive.com/ernest-hemingways-boat-makes…

On left: Hemingway with his chum dating from the Spanish Civil War: Herbert Matthews–who I trust needs no introduction hereabouts.)



“Humberto Fontova’s book teaches us truths about Cuba that are very discomfiting for many intellectuals.” (Ana Botella, Spain’s former First Lady while giving a book reading in Madrid upon the Spanish-language release of the BOMBSHELL book “Fidel; Hollywood’s Favorite Tyrant.”)

TV Star William Levy (recently a Cuban “Political refugee”) now a travel agent for Castro Regime.



“He (William Levy) was 14 when his family was granted political asylum in the U.S. and moved to Miami.” (From an interview with ABC in 2012.) 

I’m guessing three years ago when William Levy, (as a “political refugee” from Castroism) was bashing Castroism he wasn’t planning on soon requiring the good graces of the Castro regime to film a TV show and movie on location in the Castro fiefdom, the very place he desperately sought “refuge” from (at U.S. taxpayer expense.)

Here’s what William Levy was  telling the media in 2012:

“It’s a do-or-die situation,” Levy said (presumably about life in Castro’s Cuba.)  “You can’t just stay there and just let people (presumably the CDR’s, Castroite police, etc.) step all over you.”

‘It was a little bit tough, as a kid, to see everybody who came from outside the country, tourists, allowed to go in every restaurant and to do whatever they wanted to do and we weren’t allowed to go into those places and buy the things [tourists] were buying. You become a little mad and start seeing what you want for your future and for yourself and your family.

It makes you stronger. Since Cuba is Communist, everybody has to be the same.”


(“WHY?–Oh WHY?!…Did I invite the CRAZY CUBAN!?” (asks Cliff Kincaid on right.)


Well, nowadays William Levy is  a smoking-hot TV star of (shot on location in Castro’s fiefdom) Cuban Chrome.  He’s also planning a movie (also to be shot on  location in the Castro fiefdom.) So here’s what William Levy (the “political refugee”) tells the media nowadays, and from Cuba itself:

“It’s just beautiful to be able to film a movie in my land”…During our interview, politics could have been the elephant in the room, but the star simply said, “I don’t get into politics, I just want what’s best for my country and to see these people that have suffered so much, be able to decide what they want to do and when they want to travel,” Levy said. “It’s all I want. I want happiness and freedom for my people.””

“William is a true ambassador for film production in Cuba. He’s rallying everyone in his circle to create opportunities to shoot there, starting with his next film, an action-thriller that was previously set to shoot in another country. William has always dreamed of making films in Cuba,” Goldberg said. “He wants to show the world how beautiful the country and its people are, and so this is a very exciting moment for him.”

William Levy is also also getting good publicity from the Stalinist regime’s own press.

So can I borrow from Tom Petty and suggest a title for William Levy’s forthcoming movie?


In brief: “political refugee” from Castroism William Levy has figuratively inked a deal to serve as an auxiliary of  Castro’s film and tourism ministries–and thus help further fill the coffers of the Castro-Family-Crime-Syndicate.



“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.)

“ALL ABOARD FOR CUBA!”–soon on Norwegian Cruise Lines! (recently hailed by Cuban-Americans for its “ethics!”)


The recent jeremiad against Carnival Cruise Lines in south Florida for its planned  cruises to Cuba was (usually) accompanied by hossanahs to Norwegian Cruise Lines, which were hailed as a Cruise Lines with a Conscience.  Norwegian, you see, had canceled its stops in Tunisia when Israeli citizens faced discrimination from the Tunisian government.


From the Miami Herald:  “Norwegian chose ethical business behavior.”

From the Sun-Sentinel: “Carnival should follow the lead of Norwegian Cruise Line.”

Has it not occurred to folks that cruise stops in Bizerte (“Dirty Gertie from Bizerte,” ask any WWII North Africa vet about the ditty!)  Tunisia might not be NEARLY as lucrative for a cruise line as Cuba?


Has it not occurred to folks that Norwegian’s “PRINCIPLED STAND!” in cutting out Tunisia from its cruise stops (for discriminating against Israeli citizens) might be less “principled” than it looks?

Apparently not….Well, now the (Cuban-American, no less!) CEO of Norwegian Cruise, this Mahatma Gandhi among cruise lines, is licking his lips anticipating cruises to Cuba exactly likes his rival Carnival, this Gordon Gekko among cruise lines.

 Frank Del Rio, CEO of Miami-based Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings said his company is still seeking approvals to launch sailings to Cuba by the end of the year….”I am extremely pleased with the announcement that all Americans, regardless of their place of birth, will be able to travel to Cuba aboard cruise ships,” Del Rio said. “Our Oceania Cruises brand continues discussions with Cuban officials seeking approval to commence cruises to Cuba later this year….


I am very much looking forward to sailing to Cuba soon aboard one of our ships in the company of many fellow Cuban Americans and other fellow Americans who wish to share in the excitement and passion that cruising to Cuba brings,” said Del Rio, who was born in Cuba and immigrated to the U.S. in 1961.”


On right:“Remember when all those people in Miami SCREAMED at us that vacations to Cuba were a TERRIBLE thing?!”)

Indeed, I search in utter vain for an apology to Beyonce and Jay-Z  from the tremendously scandalized folks who railed against these celebrities’ for a (badly-disguised) vacation in Cuba two years ago–but who now clamor for cruise vacations by Cuban-Americans to Cuba en masse.

A famous Spanish saying nails it: “si se la meten gritan, y si se la sacan lloran.”


So yet again it appears that the $ dollars spend by Cuban-Americans in going to Cuba IN NO WAY resemble those spent by Beyonce’, Jay-Z, Paris Hilton, Conan O’Brien, etc., which all help the Stalinist regime. Instead these Cuban-American $ dollars are imbued with magical qualities which make them brave and honorable tools in the battle for Civil Rights.

(our own Asombra constantly marvels at how we somehow expect Joe Sixpack, Soccer Mom, American celebrities, etc. (i.e. people with next to no knowledge of Cuban matters) to somehow behave more honorably in these matters than Cuban-Americans themselves–ALAS!)

YIPEEE! FORM the CONGA-LINES! Castro family gives Carnival Approval to sail with Cuban-Americans (So Cuban “Refugees” can now enrich the Castro family as eagerly as did Beyonce, Jay-Z, Paris Hilton, Conan O’Brien, etc.!)


You KNEW it was coming, amigos! (those of you with half a brain, that is.)  And SURE ENOUGH!!!


Just today Carnival Cruise Lines announced it has SOMEHOW(!!!)  persuaded the Castro-Family-Crime-Syndicate to allow Carnival to OPEN YET ANOTHER FINANCIAL LIFELINE  TO FURTHER ENRICH  them!!!

YES! Along with their traditional use of airlines and Western Union to enrich the Castro family–as of today!– Cuban-Americans can also partner with Carnival Cruise line to deposit (further) $ millions and $millions into the already bulging coffers of  the Castro-Family-Crime-Syndicate!!!

Call it cruel arm-twisting by Carnival! Call it devilishly-shrewd deal-making a la Donald Trump! Call it a deal the Castro family JUST COULDN’T REFUSE!!!”–or call it Victory for Civil Rights!


(As the protesters made abundantly clear with their signs: they didn’t oppose the enrichment of the Stalinist regime via Carnival. They opposed being LEFT OUT of the enrichment process.)

From USA Today:

The Cuban government has eliminated a rule barring Cuban-born people from entering or leaving the country by sea, ending a controversy that threatened to derail the first USA to Cuba cruises in more than 50 years. News of the change emerged early Friday from cruise giant Carnival Corp., which said its new Fathom brand now would go ahead with voyages from Miami to Cuba scheduled to kick off May 1.




Apparently the above only applies to dollars spent by Beyonce and Jay-Z—-But  NOT to those spent by Cuban-Americans in going to Cuba! Instead these Cuban-American $ dollars are imbued with magical qualities which make them brave and honorable tools in the battle for Civil Rights!!!
