“In the mid-1970s, California Congresswoman Karen Bass, who is now under consideration to be Joe Biden’s running mate, was an organizer for the Venceremos Brigade, according to several contemporaneous media accounts and an interview with the future congresswoman published in a 1996 Ph.D. dissertation.” An event blurb in an October 1975 issue of the communist Daily World newspaper describes Bass, then 22, as “leader of the Venceremos Brigade in southern California….As a ‘brigadista’ and then organizer for the Venceremos Brigades, Karen visited Cuba every 6 months.” (More from Tablet magazine here.)
“A declassified FBI report ( btw: this was WELL before people like Comey ran it) said the ultimate objective of the DGI (Cuban Intelligence’s) in setting up the Venceremos Brigades “is the recruitment of individuals who are politically oriented and who someday may obtain a position, elective or appointive, somewhere in the U.S. Government, which would provide the Cuban Government with access to political, economic and military intelligence.” (Much more here.)
From Senate hearings titled: The Role of Cuba in International Terrorism and Subversion, Intelligence Activities of the DGI, Feb. 26, 1982, US Senate Subcommittee on Security and Terrorism , Feb. 26 , 1982″ :
“Mr. Gerardo Peraza (a high-ranking Cuban intelligence defector)” Between the years 1959 to 1970 there was between Cuba and the KGB a close cooperation of intelligence. But by beginning of 1970, the intelligence service of Cuba was placed under the DIRECT ORDERS of KGB General Simonov.”
“Senator DENTON. Are you personally aware, Señor Peraza, that there were any successful placings of high-ranking DGI or KGB agents within the U.S. intelligence service or any defense or security-oriented agencies?
“Mr. PERAZA. Yes, definitely. We can use as an example the (U.S.) Senate. “
“Senator DENTON. I imagine we better have a closed session on that.’
“Mr. PERAZA. “Yes, yes.“
“You come from a society that must be destroyed,” stressed DGI Colonel Julian Torres Rizo to the Venceremos Brigadistas he was training in Cuba as agents and terrorists. “It’s your job to destroy your society.”
And there’s plenty of evidence that Bass has NOT ended her flirtation or linkage with Cuban intelligence. Click here for the evidence.
