Obama Spouted Communist Propaganda In Cuba Speech

Venceremos-Brigade-1

Rumor has it that since the 2014 midterm shellacking, Obama’s felt “liberated” and “ready to be the president he’s always wanted to be.”  It should not be surprising, then, that the rhetoric of the already far left president has swerved even further to the left into Communist territory.

In his speech announcing the normalization of relations with Cuba, earlier this week, he repeated Commie propaganda about “American imperialism” oppressing the Cuban people.

Addressing the Cuban people directly, he said: “Some of you have looked to us as a source for hope, and we will continue to shine a light of freedom. Others have seen us a a former colonizer, intent on controlling your future…..Today I’m being honest with you – we can never erase the history between us but we believe that you should be empowered to live in dignity, and self-determination.”

Hannity had Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) Wednesday night, to discuss Obama’s speech. Rubio, the son of Cuban immigrants, has been all over the news lambasting the president’s latest unilateral move to normalize relations with Cuba, and was baffled by the president’s line about US colonialism.

The Senator stated that he had no idea what Obama was talking about. “During the Spanish/American War the US fought on the side of the Cuban people for their independence from Spain. The US remained after that for a period of time, and in 1902 turned the country back over to the Cuban people – which they had until 1959 when Fidel Castro took over..”

He continued, “I don’t know what he’s talking about. The United States tried to colonize Cuba? I don’t know anyone who seriously believes that. That’s a talking point of the Castro Regime. In fact, that was a term that Raul CAstro used in his address today to the Cuban people, that this is walking away from the era of colonialism. I have no idea what he is talking about when he says something like that. It’s an outrageous statement.”

The left-leaning Wikipedia agrees with Rubio:

Cuba remained a colony of Spain until the Spanish–American War of 1898, after which it was briefly administered by the United States until gaining nominal independence in 1902. The fragile republic endured increasingly radical politics and social strife, and despite efforts to strengthen its democratic system, Cuba came under the dictatorship of former president Fulgencio Batista in 1952.[16][17][18] Growing unrest and instability led to Batista’s ousting in January 1959 by the July 26 movement, which afterwards established a government under the leadership of Fidel Castro. Since 1965 the country has been governed as a single-party state by the Communist Party.

You know who does spout nonsense about American imperialism in Cuba? People like this:   The Revolution Newspaper (The voice of the Communist Party in the USA) wrote in 2006 of “U.S. Domination Over Cuba” – equating United States military involvement with its close neighbor as “the domination of US imperialism.”

Cuba came under the domination of U.S. imperialism as a result of the Spanish-American War of 1898. The Cubans had been fighting for their independence from Spain, but the U.S. seized on the situation to turn Cuba into a neo-colony.

Cuba achieved formal independence in 1898. But in 1901, the U.S. Congress passed the Platt Amendment. This amendment, which was incorporated into the Cuban constitution until 1934, set conditions for U.S. intervention in Cuba’s domestic affairs. And the U.S. landed marines in Cuba in 1906, 1912, 1917, and 1920. The amendment also established a U.S. military colony in Cuba—the Guantánamo naval base—that is now used as a detention camp and torture chamber in the U.S.’s war on the world.

One might ask why would the president of the United States send a message to the Cuban people, basically affirming communist propaganda against the United States?

One of Obama’s former Chicago pals Bill Ayers, and his adorable wife, Bernardine “Dig it!” Dohrn have been heavily involved with fighting “American imperialism in Cuba” for the past 50 years or so.

During the late 60’s and early 70’s Ayers’ SDS offshoot,  “the Weathermen served as the Cuban DGI’s(Directorio General de Intelligencia) top U.S. recruitment officers.”

They accomplished this recruitment primarily through their sponsorship of the then famous Venceremos Brigades.

During that  heady Age of Aquarius hundreds of starry-eyed college kids were volunteering to “help build Cuban Socialism” and “fight U.S. Imperialism,” mostly by joining these Venceremos Brigades (many via the Weathermen,) making their way to Cuba and joyfully cutting Cuban sugar cane.

“The ultimate objective of the DGI’s participation in the setting up of theVenceremos Brigades,” says an FBI report declassified in 1976 “was 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.

According to former FBI informant Larry Grathwohl (October 13, 1947– July 18, 2013) those “politically oriented individuals” were sent to Cuba to be trained in “domestic terrorism, political propaganda and other necessities of the urban guerrilla terrorist.”

The Venceremos brigades still exist today and it is noteworthy that while its purpose is supposedly to help the Cubans harvest sugarcane, in fact certain members are taken out of the group were they receive this training. This organization, the Venceremos brigade, represents the domestic terrorists continued ties to communist Cuba and the hope and intent of the communist regime to bring terror to the United States.

It is also interesting to note that while President Obama is considering the total lifting of travel restrictions to Cuba, terrorist fugitives from the United States continue to live there openly with no fear of extradition. One example of this is Joanne Chesimard, who escaped from prison with the help of the Weathermen. Chesimard was convicted of murdering a police officer and now lives freely and openly in communist Cuba. The really important message here is that the Venceremos brigade, which has been in existence since the late 60s, is still sending individuals to Cuba to be indoctrinated and train in terrorist activities. I believe that Chesimard, who now goes by the name Assata Shakur, is in Cuba to help train selected members of the Venceremos brigade who continue to travel there under the pretense of chopping sugar cane or “educational” missions.

It is important to note that Chesimard is not the only fugitive who is taken refuge in Cuba. Currently it is estimated that there are at least 70 individuals who are fugitives from United States justice and who are under the protection of the Castro regime. Some of these individuals were part of the terrorism that devastated the United States during the late 60s and into the 70s and even 80s. I think it is safe to conclude that these individuals have no love for the United States and no doubt are eager to participate in the indoctrination and training of future terrorists who come to Cuba as part of the Venceremos brigades.

In their 1974 book, Prairie Fire, Obama’s fellow travelers Ayers and Dohrn wrote that “Socialism is the total opposite of capitalism/imperialism. It is the rejection of empire and white supremacy. Socialism is the violent overthrow of the bourgeoisie, the establishment of the dictatorship of the proletariat, and the eradication of the social system based on profit.”

The next couple of years should be interesting given the mask has fallen almost completely off and Obama now feels “liberated” to be the president  dictator of the proletariat he always wanted to be.

Video: The Worst of MSNBC 2014

Via those incorrigible rascals at Washington Free Beacon who actually seem to enjoy keeping an eye on the basket-cases at PMSNBC (so we don’t have to.)

Megyn Kelly told Jimmy Kimmel the other night that at the White House Christmas Party, there were a couple of other Fox News reporters (Brett Baier and Ed Henry) at the event, but the place was swarming with MSNBCers.

KIMMEL: Is there a separate section for Fox News where there’s no food and dirty forks or something like that?

KELLY: You mean there was something other than outside in the rain, others were, they were inside the building?

KIMMEL: Do you ever feel any kind of discomfort when you go into a situation like that?

KELLY: No, but it was funny because last night, we went in and I mean the White House looked beautiful. It was spectacular. And I was looking for some Fox News colleagues because this is for broadcast news. And I saw a couple, I saw Bret Baier, I saw Ed Henry, our Chief White House Correspondent. And then, boy, oh, boy did I see a lot of MSNBC anchors. I mean you couldn’t take two steps without hitting one.

KIMMEL: Oh really?

KELLY: I think they got a few more invitations than we got.

It only makes sense that the far-left, unpopular, activist network, would be the personal favorite of the far-left, unpopular, activist president.

Speaking of the “activist president…”

Hot Air: White House aides: Obama feels liberated and ready to be the president he always wanted to be

“This certainly has been our most productive year since the Republicans took over,” the Obama aide said, calling it, in the context of what happens in any presidency, “an excellent year.”

His “excellent year” involved every Democratic incumbent in the country running away from him and his low-40s approval rating, only to see them wiped out anyway in a mammoth nationwide anti-Obama backlash. You could understand him feeling liberated if Democrats had run on his policies and outperformed expectations; he would have pointed to that, not unjustifiably, as a mandate. Instead, “liberation” to Obama meant postponing virtually every major initiative until after voters were safely out of the way. He saved net neutrality for the week after the election; he saved executive amnesty for two weeks after; and who knows how soon the Cuba deal could have been struck if Obama wanted it done before November 4th. What he feels liberated from, in other words, is democratic accountability, which is not the sort of thing you want to hear from a guy who’s already blazed new unconstitutional trails in executive lawmaking. If this is what he’s doing in the first flush of “liberation,” what’s he going to be doing in the homestretch of his presidency in 2016, especially if Hillary has a safe-ish lead against her Republican challenger? You trust a man who’s reflected wistfully to his inner circle that it’d be easier to be president of China, don’t you? Especially with a sympathetic media cheering on his dubious, just-try-to-stop-me “winning streak.”

GAWD help us.

College Prof With Backpack Full of Hammers, Arrested In Brooklyn Bridge Police Assault

121414prof

An estimated 25,000 to 30,000 protesters upset over the the grand jury decisions not to indict the officers involved in the Eric Garner and Michael Brown cases, converged on New York City on Saturday. The protest on the Brooklyn Bridge turned violent when police attempted to arrest the professor, Saturday night as “demonstrators” knocked two lieutenants to the ground, punching and kicking them. Police say a backpack full of hammers found at the site, belong to the suspect.

Via CBS News New York:

“They were knocked to the ground. They were punched by numerous people and kicked in the face and the head, while the group attempted to steal their portable radios and tear away their police identification jackets,” said the NYPD’s Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence & Counter-terrorism John Miller.

The college professor, dubbed “the Poet Protester” by the NY media,  has been charged in connection with the assault of the two police officers on the bridge.

The charges against Eric Linsker, 29, of Crown Heights, who was arrested shortly before 4 a.m. Sunday, include assault in the second degree, rioting in the first degree, criminal possession of a weapon, resisting arrest and unlawful possession of marijuana.

As CBS2’s Matt Kozar reported, Linsker appeared before a judge in criminal court in Lower Manhattan Sunday night and was released without having to post bail.

Linsker’s lawyer said the case against his client is weak, but police and prosecutors claim he incited a riot leading to protesters beating up two police lieutenants.

Linsker is an English professor at Baruch College, 1010 WINS reported.

According to police, Linsker tried to throw a metal garbage can at officers on the Brooklyn Bridge.

They attempted to arrest him, but protesters intervened, pulling the man away from police and punching and kicking the cops in the face and head, authorities told 1010 WINS’ Kevin Rincon. The demonstrators also knocked the two lieutenants down to the ground and punched and kicked them, police said.

Police found several hammers inside what they believe to be the suspect’s backpack. Lovely person  – just the sort parents want teaching their children.

But Linsker’s attorney said there’s no way for prosecutors to prove the bag belonged to his client.

He also called the charges bogus, and said his client had nothing to do with the assault.

“This young man did nothing but protest. He did absolutely nothing. He did not do the assault that it is claimed that he did,” the attorney  said.

Uh huh. Is Linsker’s attorney named Saul Goodman, by any chance?

saul-goodman

In a statement, Baruch College President Mitchel B. Wallerstein said the school is “working with The City University of New York.”

“Baruch will cooperate fully, as called upon, in any criminal investigation. While we believe firmly in the exercise of free speech, we deplore violence of any kind and will support the official investigation of this matter.”

No comment from Al Sharpton, the president or attorney general.

MORE on Linsker’s “poetry” via The NY Daily News:

He’s a police-hating poet whose known “for his erotic poetry interspersed with expletives aimed at the police.”

Before his run-in with the law, Linsker was scribbling stanzas about psychedelic sex and disdain for the cops.

“F— the police/To rise as you/Disappear below current/Interpretations of observations/F— the police,” he wrote for Adult-Mag, an online publication.

***

One review on Rate My Professors said Linsker pursues carnal subject matter.

“The readings are pretty weird. . . . I mean, if you love reading about sex in the most poetically disturbing way possible, go for it,” a student wrote last month.

Baruch College should be damn proud to have this dirtbag on their payroll.

Obama: ‘When We Make Mistakes, We Admit Them’

Barack Obama

Remember how I said, last week that “we’ve reached a point in Obama’s presidency where he really seems to enjoy mortifying average Americans”?

He’s basically trolling us now with outlandish executive actions – (knowing Republicans are too timid to do anything about them), race-baiting,  and telling increasingly ridiculous whoppers that he knows no one believes but his most loyal drones.

With that in mind — this happened Tuesday evening:

Obama, responding to the Democrat Senate report on CIA enhanced interrogations:

“When we make mistakes, we admit them.” said Obama.

#Um

By “we,” President Smidgen, of course, was referring to “the previous administration.”

Obama doesn’t make mistakes.

He only uses the first person singular when exalting himself . The One uses “I” me and myself  profusely when taking credit for something, as in – “I” got Osama Bin Laden.

But he always uses the royal “we” when talking about failures, or controversies that can be blamed on someone else. So when he’s talking about the nation’s past sins, and arrogance (as he likes to remind us) – he uses “we.”

If a failure reaches horrific levels of  FUBAR – as is happening in Iraq because he pulled the troops out too early – the royal “he” is used. Even though he announced he was doing it (going against the advice of his military commanders), and bragged about “ending the War in Iraq” for over two years – it was Maliki’s fault we didn’t have a Status of Forces agreement. “He” did it.

Yep. This SCOAMF of a president sure likes to admit mistakes.

Tampa was limited by the 130 characters – but you get the idea.

I have a dream….that we’ll someday reach a point as a nation where even the drones can’t take his bullshit any longer.  Obama will give a speech, and people will cut off his mic so no one has to hear him anymore. And it will be the nation’s secret. SHHHH. Don’t tell him, you guys. Just let him drone on and on, in sotto voce at times so he can display his  magnanimous empathy for us “folks.” Dare to imagine. That mad scramble for the remote to push the mute button or change the channel will be a thing of the past.

He can still have his beloved court photographer take pictures of him everywhere he goes, but no one else will want to. They’ll have to pay SEIU members 20 dollars each and a boxed lunch to fill the seats so they can pretend to listen to  his permanent campaign speeches. And what wonders will the gifted orator grace us with? Another race speech? $10 an hour minimum wage?  Amnesty? Climate change fear-mongering? ObamaCare….?.  Doesn’t matter - we turned his damn mic off.

Good job, Obama. Now go away, and let the grown-ups take over and try to reverse the damage.

MO Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder Wonders If Obama Had Something To Do With Natl Guard Not Being Mobilized In Ferguson (Updated)

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon called a state of emergency, last week, and announced that he was mobilizing the National Guard in preparation for the expected chaos in the wake of the Ferguson grand jury verdict, so where were they last night while Ferguson was burning?

Guard members were reportedly in place last night at key locations in St. Louis when the grand jury decision not to indict police officer Darrell Wilson was announced. But for some reason, none were at the flash point, where you would think, most of the attention would  have been focused.

Ferguson Mayor James Knowles told FOX 2 late  Monday night that he had repeatedly pleaded with the Governor’s office to deploy the  the National Guard in his town, but his requests were “completely ignored.”

On Fox News’, America’s NewsroomKinder asked, “did the Obama administration lean on Governor Nixon to ignore pleas from Ferguson Mayor to send in National Guard?”

Via Gateway Pundit: 

“He (Governor Nixon) declared a State of Emergency almost a week ago and mobilized the National Guard. Then they were kept away at the crucial time while Ferguson burned…

We know they were kept away because they did not come in and stop that from the get-go. They were deployed in other parts of the St. Louis region… Why were they not in there at the first sign of an overturned police car or a smashed police car window with a show of force that would have stopped this?

Here’s my question that the governor must answer – Is the reason that the National Guard was not in there because the Obama Administration and the Holder Justice Department leaned on you to keep them out? I cannot imagine any other reason why the governor who mobilized the National Guard would not have them in there to stop this.”

It’s absolutely chilling that such a question is being asked.

UPDATE:

Via White House Dossier: Did Holder Cause the National Guard to be Kept From Ferguson?

Indeed, there were reports Holder was not happy with Nixon’s efforts to display force and use the National Guard. From an article Friday in the Washington Post:

Holder also expressed concerns privately about Gov. Jay Nixon’s decision this week to declare a state of emergency at a news conference and activate the National Guard . . .

A top aide to Holder called the governor’s office earlier this week to express Holder’s displeasure and “frustration,” according to a Justice Department official.

“Instead of de-escalating the situation, the governor escalated it,” said the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak on the subject. “He sent the wrong message. The tone of the press conference was counterproductive.”

UPDATE II:

Kinder was also on the Kelly File with Megyn Kelly Tuesday night:

Ezra Klein Can’t Believe Officer Wilson’s Story Even Though Mike Brown’s Friend Agrees it Happened

 

Officer Darren Wilson Issues Statement: “Followed His Training And Followed the Law”

Via St. Louis Dispatch. lawyers for officer Darren Wilson have issued a statement following the Grand Jury decision not to indict, saying Wilson “followed his training and followed the law” when he shot and killed Michael Brown  on Aug. 9.

If anyone should be indicted in all this – it’s the national media and the racial grievance industry who helped spread early, erroneous narratives.

Some of the witnesses “pretty much acknowledged they saw parts and made up other parts of it,” Mr. McCulloch said in disputing some of the early media reports in the case.

And although it’s certainly a welcome relief that Obama made a point to urge that protesters stay peaceful, tonight, why not tell them to stay home as there’s nothing to protest?  Contrary to what the president says, it is not “understandable” for people to be upset because justice has taken its course, and an innocent man is not being prosecuted.

That is not to say that his life has not been completely upended by this nightmare. The mob can get some solace from that, perhaps.

“While the legal system has exonerated Officer Darren Wilson for his split-second decision on that August afternoon, he very much remains a victim of a politicized agenda that deemed him ‘guilty until proven innocent,’” said Ron Hosko, a former FBI assistant director who serves currently as the president of the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund. “Although he will walk free, his life has been forever changed, as he has been exploited in a cynical effort to turn civilians against cops in fulfillment of an anti-law enforcement agenda.

Via the St. Louis Post-DispatchLawyers for Darren Wilson issued a public statement Monday night after learning he would not be indicted, saying, in part, that Wilson “followed his training and followed the law” when he shot and killed Michael Brown Aug. 9.

The statement continued: “Today, a St. Louis County grand jury released its decision that no charges would be filed in the case involving Officer Darren Wilson. From the onset, we have maintained and the grand jury agreed that Officer Wilson’s actions on August 9 were in accordance with the laws and regulations that govern the procedures of an officer.

“In a case of this magnitude, a team of prosecutors rightfully presented evidence to this St. Louis County grand jury. This group of citizens, drawn at random from the community, listened to witnesses and heard all the evidence in the case. Based on the evidence and witness testimony, the grand jury collectively determined there was no basis for criminal charges against Officer Wilson.

“Law enforcement personnel must frequently make split-second and difficult decisions. Officer Wilson followed his training and followed the law. We recognize that many people will want to second-guess the grand jury’s decision. We would encourage anyone who wants to express an opinion do so in a respectful and peaceful manner.

 “On a side note, Officer Wilson would like to thank those who have stood by his side throughout the process. This continued support is greatly appreciated by Officer Wilson and his family. Moving forward, any commentary on this matter will be done in the appropriate venue and not through the media.

His attorney, Neil Bruntrager, characterized the past few days as “tense” for Wilson.

“For him, none of this ends,” Bruntrager said. “People have made threats against his life, he will continue to be concerned about his family’s security and his own. (Not being indicted) is a brief respite, but certainly not the end of things for him.”

Obama Presser On Ferguson (Live-Stream)

Will POTUS for once, do the responsible thing and respect the decision? Will he tell the angry mob to go home – that justice has taken place? Not counting on it.

No, I’m sorry – It is not an understanding reaction for people to be enraged that an innocent man is not being prosecuted. Obama can urge peaceful protests all he wants, but as long as he and others in positions of power justify their rage by saying it is understandable – violence will ensue.

So Obama is using this sorry debacle as a launching pad for “critical reforms” (ala Bill D’Blasio in NYC) in law enforcement agencies across the nation.

“Never let a crisis go to waste,”as they say.
