The Cuban dictatorship socialist revolution took a once prosperous nation and turned it into a third-world hellhole. But when it comes to intelligence and espionage, the Castro regime runs an efficient and effective operation. Throughout its history, the communist Castro dictatorship’s intelligence apparatus has launched organizations to lure and capture foreign supporters. According to a recent Op-Ed, one of those is a leftist group employing the Interior Secretary’s daughter.
Cuba wants YOU for the Venceremos Brigade!
Interior secretary’s daughter works with group tied to Cuba regime support movement
For decades, the Cuban military dictatorship’s public relations machine has snowed the American left by projecting Che Guevara and the Castro brothers as heroes. In reality, the Castro regime betrayed the real freedom fighters who battled to end Fulgencio Batista’s iron rule, paraded innocents into lawless “revolutionary justice” stadium trials, and transformed a Caribbean paradise into an island-wide slave plantation.
Despite this cruelty, the left buys into Cuba’s false reality that the poverty-stricken island is a paradise of equality. To enhance this false image, pro-Cuba intermediaries invite well-positioned Americans to the island, where they are given controlled tours designed to persuade them to offer their help.
The organization responsible for this diabolical influence campaign is the Institute of Friendship Along With the Peoples, known as ICAP, a group sponsored by the Cuban Intelligence Directorate, or DGI, that targets leftist activists all over the Western Hemisphere.
In 1969, Cuba’s intelligence apparatus helped create the U.S.-based Venceremos Brigade, whose aim, according to a 1976 FBI report, “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.”
One of the organizations that openly associate with the New Mexico Venceremos Brigade Committee is the Pueblo Action Alliance, a leftist environmental coalition that has enlisted Somah Haaland, the daughter of U.S. Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, as its communications coordinator, according to the independent news platform ADN America.
Since her appointment, Deb Haaland has been the subject of several news articles for taking aim at natural resource drilling projects. Last year, the interior secretary appeared with her daughter in a documentary film, “Our Story: The Indigenous Led Fight to Protect Greater Chaco,” aimed at outlawing the development of oil and gas drilling leases near New Mexico’s Chaco Culture National Historic Park as a means of preserving Native American land and artifacts.
On Aug. 17, the secretary’s association with the Pueblo Action Alliance, or PAA, and the film became the subject of an ethics complaint filed with the Department of Interior Office of Inspector General by the government watchdog group Protect the Public’s Trust. It accuses Deb Haaland of “apparent ethical breaches” and says that in June, the secretary “withdrew public lands from future fuel leases within the Greater Chaco area.”
It alleges that Deb Haaland’s daughter “is a prominent member of an activist organization that lobbied federal officials seeking to restrict oil and gas leasing in the area” and asks the department to determine if she compromised her impartiality by using her regulatory authority to implement the drilling ban.
