Alberto at Babalu Blog notes the Myers–the Cuban spies arrested last week–are your typical spoiled, privileged traitorous American-hating leftists.
So that leaves me with a thought, or rather, a question. Given the type of people Obama is associated with, how many future Cuban (or other country) spies are coming to work for his administration now?
Walter Kendall Myers, a 72-year-old former State Department worker and his 71-year-old wife Gwendolyn were arrested today for spying for Cuba for about 30 years. They were “true believers” who even met in person with Fidel Castro in the 1990’s. America-hating leftists doing what they do best. Reportedly, Myers was privy to a bunch of sensitive and even classified info on Cuba while he worked at Foggy Bottom.
Gateway Pundit has a lot more, including news that a Walter Myers from a DC suburb donated to the Obama campaign.
Look up the phrase “useful idiots” and I’m sure you’ll find these tools’ photos. No doubt the left will begin its usual talking points when Castro apologists are caught spying: deny it vehemently at first and when the evidence becomes too overwhelming to deny, shift and claim they were justified in their spying and/or the U.S. does it too so therefore Cuba has the “right” to spy on us. Too bad we don’t do to spies in this country what countries like, oh, Cuba do to spies when they catch them.
The OAS, which ostensibly believes in democratic principles, lifted a ban on Cuba today. I guess “OAS” now stands for “Oligarchs, Anarcho-Leftists and Socialists.
Cuba was kicked out of the OAS in the early ’60’s for being a dictatorial regime. More than 40 years later, the “dictatorial regime” part hasn’t changed in Cuba but that didn’t stop the useless idiots in the OAS from opening the door to their return.
Naturally, the Obummer
regime administration didn’t put up too much of a fight:
The decision was made by consensus, meaning the United States accepted it, though Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton had lobbied personally for requiring Cuba to make democratic reforms and improve respect for human rights.
Still, Clinton applauded the final vote.
Gee, what a freakin’ surprise.
Remember those Castro apologists from CONgress who visited Cuba a few weeks to kiss Castro’s rear end? Well, the sister of one prominent Cuban dissident hasn’t forgotten.
Berta AntÃºnez, sister of Afro-Cuban dissident and hunger striker Jorge Luis ”AntÃºnez” Garcia Perez, visited with staffers from the Congressional Black Caucus and hand delivered a scathing letter from her brother, according to the Miami Herald:
”While you were meeting with the Castro brothers,” he wrote to the members of Congress, “only 300 kilometers away from the capital, our home and the five protesters who remain within it were subject to a brutal siege by the combined forces of the national and political police.”
I suppose to the CBC, the color red is more important than the color black when they so quickly applaud the so-called “accomplishments” of the Castro regime while they turn a blind eye to the abuses of all Cubans under Castro–especially black Cubans.
So many of us Cuban-Americans KNEW that when Raul Castro said he’d be willing to “talk” about anything with Obama, he was just blowing smoke:
“Affirming that the president of Cuba is ready to discuss any topic with the president of the United States expresses that he’s not afraid to broach any subject,” Fidel Castro wrote of his 77-year-old brother, who succeeded him 14 months ago.
“It’s a sign of bravery and confidence in the principles of the revolution,” he said.
“Nobody should assume that he was talking about pardoning those sentenced in March 2003 and sending all of them to the United States, if the country were willing to liberate the five Cuban anti-terrorist heroes,” Castro wrote.
We knew it, we knew it, we knew it.
Check this out:
The U.S. policy of shunning communist Cuba by imposing a strict trade embargo has failed to prod the island nation toward democracy and should be re-evaluated, according to the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
“We must recognize the ineffectiveness of our current policy and deal with the Cuban regime in a way that enhances U.S. interests,” wrote Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., in a report dated Monday.
Yep, so let’s just reward bad behavior then, sort of like the whole point behind the trillion-dollar bailouts our grandkids will be paying for.
Here’s an interesting part of the article which, of course, I found near the end:
In 2000, President Bill Clinton signed a law allowing the sale of agricultural goods and medicine to Cuba for humanitarian reasons. Since then, agricultural sales to Cuba have risen from almost nothing to more than $440 million last year.
From zero to $440 million a year. And yet–shock, horror, surprise!–not a darn thing has changed in Cuba! What makes you think anything is going to change in Cuba if we appease the Castros, Senator?
Castro’s cadaver spoke out and for possibly the first time in his life–or more accurately, after his life–he actually said something that was true:
â€œOur future is inseparable from what happens next Sunday, the day of the (Venezuelan) referendum on the constitutional amendment,â€ Castro wrote in an editorial published on the Cuba Debate Web site.
He’s right. The constitutional amendment in question would change Venezuela’s current constitution to allow Castro’s Mini-Me–Hugo Chavez to seek more than two terms (which is two terms too many).
So… how come Cuba’s future is
insufferable “inseparable” from the Venezuelan vote? Well, aside from the obvious, that Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro are buddies, there are more material concerns at hand:
Communist Cuba receives about 90,000 barrels of Venezuelan oil a day in exchange for services (read: slavery) from thousands of Cuban professionals, including doctors, agricultural specialists and athletic trainers that Castro has sent to live in Venezuela since their agreement started in 2000.
A hat tip to Babalu Blog for posting this story.
Boo! That’s a really scary thought, Castro voting for Obama (several times no less). But not as scary as Obama actually winning or much worse, living in Castro’s Cuba.
Please note I’m keeping this poll up until after the election. I’ll post the November poll then.
For now, go ahead and vote in this poll. Don’t be scared, just do it!
On this, the first day of early voting in Florida, I remind you to vote early and often… in the Castro Death Watch poll, of course!
