President Trump: This is important 

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

I perfectly understand that President Trump is very upset (so am I) at members of the fake media who are relentless in their vicious attacks against him, like Mika Brzezinski and her husband-to-be, Joe Scarborough at MSNBC. This is why the POTUS launched the Tweet captioned above. However, through my reply I’m respectfully reminding President Trump that he should concentrate on the enemy that the fake media serves.

URGENT MESSAGE FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP: Please Shut Down Espionage Center in Washington DC Known as Cuban Embassy

Image captioned above shows some of Communist Cuba's heroes: Fidel Castro, Barack Obama and Pope Francis.

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Cuba’s murderous Communist dictatorship has officially and completely rejected President Trump’s Cuba Policy. Consequently, President Trump must shut down the Fake Cuban Embassy immediately. Otherwise, we will continue to face two dangerous situations, which will directly affect the people of the United States and the people of Cuba, whom President Trump wants to help:

  • The Fake Cuban Embassy in Washington DC will continue to act as a espionage center in the heart of our nation’s capital– through Cuba’s sophisticated international intelligence network, which serves our enemies, such as terrorist organizations (Hezbollah, Hamas, etc.), as well as the governments of Iran, China, Russia and others– who do not have the best interest of America in mind, or who wish to do us harm.
  • Trump’s Cuba Policy, which now stands officially rejected by the Communist military dictatorship of Cuba, would help prolong the suffering of the people of Cuba, based on the long-standing correlation between fake diplomacy and the empowerment of communist dictatorships. This travesty should not be part of President Trump’s legacy.

Here is the official rejection by Cuba’s military dictatorship of President Trump’s Cuba Policy, published today, June 19, in Granma, which is the “Official Voice of the Communist Party of Cuba Central Committee.”

June 16, 2017, the President of the United States, Donald Trump, in a speech replete with hostile rhetoric which recalled the era of open confrontation with our country, announced in a Miami theater his administration’s policy toward Cuba which reverses advances made these last two years, after December 17, 2014, when Presidents Raúl Castro Ruz and Barack Obama made public the decision to reestablish diplomatic relations and initiate a process toward normalization of bilateral ties.

In what constitutes a setback in relations between the two countries, Trump delivered a speech and during the same event signed a policy directive entitled, ” National Security Presidential Memorandum on Strengthening U.S. Policy toward Cuba,” mandating the elimination of educational “people-to-people” exchanges undertaken by individuals, and greater control of U.S. travelers to Cuba, as well as the prohibition of economic, commercial, or financial transactions on the part of U.S. companies with Cuban enterprises linked to the Revolutionary Armed Forces, intelligence or security services – all of this with the intentional objective of denying us income. The U.S. President justified this policy with alleged concerns about the human rights situation in Cuba and the need to rigorously enforce blockade laws, conditioning its lifting, as well as any improvement in bilateral relations, on our country making changes elemental to our constitutional order.

Trump likewise vacated the Presidential Policy Directive, “Normalization of relations between the United States and Cuba,” issued by President Obama on October 14, 2016, which, although it did not attempt to hide the interventionist character of U.S. policy or the objective of advancing its interest in changes in our country’s economic, political and social order, the directive recognized Cuba’s independence, sovereignty, and self-determination, and the Cuban government as a legitimate, equal interlocutor, as well as the benefits that both countries and people could gain in a relationship of civilized coexistence, within the context of the great differences which exist between our two governments. It also recognized that the blockade was an obsolete policy that should be eliminated.

Once again, the U.S. government resorts to the coercive methods of the past, adopting measures to tighten the blockade, in effect since February of 1962, which not only causes harm and depravation to the Cuban people and constitutes an undeniable obstacle to our economy’s development, but also impacts the sovereignty and interests of other countries, generating international condemnation.

The measures announced create additional obstacles to already restricted opportunities available to U.S. businesses to trade with and invest in Cuba.

At the same time, they further restrict the rights of U.S. citizens to visit our country, already limited given the obligation to employ discriminatory licenses, at a time when the U.S. Congress – as a reflection of the opinion of broad sectors of this society – demands not only an end to the travel ban, but also that restrictions on commerce with Cuba be eliminated.

President Trump’s announcements contradict the majority support of the U.S. public, including the Cuban émigré community in that country, for the lifting of the blockade and normal relations between Cuba and the United States.

For his part, the U.S. President, once again poorly advised, makes decisions that favor political interests of an extremist minority of Cuban origin in the state of Florida, which for small-minded reasons do not desist in their pretensions to punish Cuba and its people, for exercising the legitimate, sovereign right to be free and take control of their own destiny.

At a later time, we will more thoroughly analyze the scope and implications of this announcement.

The government of Cuba denounces the new measures to tighten the blockade, which are destined to failure, as has been repeatedly demonstrated in the past, and which will not achieve their purpose of weakening the Revolution, or breaking the Cuban people, whose resistance to aggression of any kind or origin has been proven over almost six decades.

The government of Cuba rejects the manipulation of the issue of human rights for political purposes, and double standards in addressing it. The Cuban people enjoy fundamental rights and freedoms, and have achieved accomplishments of which they are proud, and which are only a dream for many of the world’s countries, including the United States itself, such as the right to health, education, social security, equal pay for equal work, the rights of children, the right to food, peace and development. With its modest resources, Cuba has contributed, as well, to the expansion of human rights in many places around the world, despite the limitations imposed given its condition as a blockaded country.

The United States is in no position to teach us a lesson. We have serious concerns about respect for and protection of human rights in this country, where there have been numerous cases of police murder, brutality, and abuse, in particular against the African-American population; the right to life is violated as a result of deaths caused by firearms; child labor is exploited; and serious manifestations of racial discrimination exist; threats are being made to impose more restrictions on health care services, which would leave 23 million persons without coverage; women do not receive equal pay for equal work; emigrants and refugees are marginalized, in particular those from Islamic countries; the building of walls that belittle neighbors is proposed; and international commitments to protect the environment and confront climate change are abandoned.

Likewise, also of concern are violations of human rights committed by the United States in other countries, such as the arbitrary detentions of dozens of prisoners in territory illegally occupied by the Guantánamo Naval Base in Cuba, where torture has taken place; the extrajudicial executions and deaths of civilians caused by bombs and the use of drones; and wars unleashed against different countries like Iraq, justified with lies about the possession of weapons of mass destruction, with disastrous consequences for the security and stability of the Middle East region.

We recall that Cuba is a state party to 44 human rights international covenants, while the United States is so to only 18. Thus we have much to show, to say, and defend.

Upon confirming the decision to reestablish diplomatic relations, Cuba and the United States affirmed the intention to develop respectful, cooperative ties between the two people and governments, based on the principles and purposes enshrined in the United Nations Charter.

In the declaration issued July 1, 2015, the revolutionary government of Cuba reaffirmed, “These relations must be founded on absolute respect for our independence and sovereignty; the inalienable right of every state to choose its own political, economic, social, and cultural system, without interference of any kind; and on equality and reciprocity, which constitute irrevocable principles of international law,” as stated in the Proclamation of Latin America and the Caribbean as a Zone of Peace, signed by heads of state and government of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), during its 2nd Summit, in Havana. Cuba has not renounced these principles, and never will.

The government of Cuba reiterates its willingness to continue the respectful dialogue and cooperation in areas of mutual interest, as well as the negotiation of pending bilateral issues with the government of the United States. Over the last two years, it has been demonstrated that, as President of the Councils of State and Ministers, Army General Raúl Castro Ruz, has repeatedly stated, the two countries can cooperate and coexist in a civilized manner, respecting differences and promoting all that benefits both nations and peoples, but it cannot be expected that, in order to do so, Cuba will make concessions which compromise our independence or sovereignty, nor accept conditions of any type.

Any strategy directed toward changing the political, economic and social system in Cuba, be it one that seeks to do so through pressure and dictates, or with the use of more subtle methods, is condemned to failure.

The changes which may be needed in Cuba, like those made since 1959 and those we are undertaking now as part of the updating of our socio-economic model, will continue to be decided independently by the Cuban people.

As we have since the triumph of the Revolution, January 1, 1959, we will assume any risk, and continue firm and sure in the construction of a sovereign, independent, socialist, democratic, prosperous and sustainable nation.

Havana, June 16, 2017.

President Trump, again– PLEASE immediately SHUT DOWN the Fake Cuban Embassy– which is acting as a dangerous center of espionage against the people of the United States. Such action would be consistent with your promise to put “America First”– as well as your promise to help the people of Cuba.

ON CUBA: President Trump– let me know when you are ready to talk

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Having suffered unspeakable horrors under Communism in Cuba, I have a sacred responsibility to advise on this urgent situation-- and have done so as a former candidate to the U.S. Senate (on the ballot 2012) and as a writer.

The world has abandoned the people of Cuba, but I will never abandon my conscience.

The world has abandoned the people of Cuba. They did so long ago. They did so each time they established business partnerships with the Communist military dictators in Cuba.

When it comes to Americans– they did so every time they chose, FOR DECADES, to enter Cuba ILLEGALLY by traveling through Mexico and Canada in violation of United States laws and international laws, and by colluding with the Communists in Havana who refused to stamp their passports with their entry, in order to avoid leaving a trail of travel into the island prison.

President Trump has not “completely” reversed Obama’s Cuba policy

I have supported President Trump from the moment he announced his candidacy– to the disappointment of many of my fellow Republicans. However, when it comes to his Cuba policy, I have publicly written since he announced his candidacy, that he is to follow a tough and swift approach– or he will simply be another U.S. President who will pass through Washington DC while the people of Cuba continue to suffer unspeakable horrors 90 miles from our shores.

As a survivor of Communism in Cuba, I have a sacred responsibility to advise on this urgent situation– and have done so both as a former candidate to the U.S. Senate (on the ballot 2012) and as a writer.

As such, I insist that President Trump’s new Cuba policy has left huge gaps that enable the Communists in Havana to not just oppress the people inside the island prison– but to export their evil Marxist ideology and totalitarian regime to other countries in the Western Hemisphere (i.e., Venezuela), as well as to Africa and other parts of the world.

The truth is that President Trump has NOT “completely” reversed Obama’s Cuba policy, as he said in his speech in Miami, at the Manuel Artime Theater on Friday, June 16.

President Trump needs to surround himself with courageous people who are willing to advise him, without fear, on the proper course to follow regarding the evil Communist dictatorship in Cuba.

President Trump, let me know when you are ready to talk.

CUBA: 55 …58 Years of Communist Terror Erased from History

 

President Trump’s Cuba Policy is Not Complete

It’s now or never

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

I have publicly supported President Trump from the moment he announced his candidacy– which upset many fellow Republicans (not to mention Democrats!). But, when it comes to Cuba, he needs to listen to those of us who suffered unspeakable horrors under Castro’s Communist military regime.

To “COMPLETELY” cancel Obama’s one-sided deal with Cuba, President Trump would need to end the farcical “diplomacy” with Cuba’s despotic Communist dictatorship– and sanction countries that support Cuba’s murderous leaders.

There’s a direct correlation between fake “diplomacy” and the empowerment of murderous Communist dictatorships.

In addition to ending this fake diplomacy, we must include sanctions in our trade deals with those heartless countries that benefit from the blood of the oppressed Cuban people.

President Trump would also need to put an end to fake “cultural and educational” exchange travel programs– which line the pockets of the Communists thugs in the island prison and support their Marxist indoctrination programs.

For 58 years the world has not cared about the torture, imprisonment and execution of innocent Cubans– including members of my family. It only hits them when they vacation and travel through these despotic places and are captured as political pawns. But until then, they could have cared less about the suffering of those who live under Communism. Traveling to Cuba is not a right. It is a wrong.

Cuba Urgently

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Cuba’s Communist thugs do not need accommodation. They need demands– and that’s exactly what President Trump told the Cuban exiled community he would do.

All the concessions that Barack Obama has granted the Castro regime were done through executive order, which means the next president can reverse them — and that I will do unless the Castro regime meets our demands. Not my demands. Our demands…” – Donald J. Trump in Miami – September 16, 2016.

The Acting Assistant Secretary of State for the Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs, Francisco Palmieri (who served under the Obama Administration), spoke on May 9 at the 47th Annual Conference on the Americas, at the U.S. Department of State.

The event was hosted by the Council of the Americas, which was founded by none other than David Rockefellerwho died on March 20 at the age of 101. David Rockefeller was one of the biggest supporters of communism and globalization of the 20th and 21st centuries. Here is David Rockefeller smiling during a meeting with Fidel Castro:

Please also read the following archived screen caption of David Rockefeller’s opinion piece in the New York Times (Aug. 10, 1973) where he stated that, “The social experiment in China under Chairman Mao’s leadership is one of the most important and successful in human history.” Click on the image to expand and read this nauseating and heartless commentary:

But let’s get back to the conference…

Susan Segal, the AS/COA President and CEO, said during her opening remarks that this 2017 event “carries a particular importance given the historic changes that are occurring in Washington.”  I’m assuming that Segal is referring to the draining-of-the-swamp process that Trump has set in motion.

But most important to me, as a survivor of Communism in Cuba, is the following statement made by Francisco Palmieri during the conference– which was quoted on the COA website:

Palmieri also said that one can expect the U.S.’s landmark policy on Cuba to, at the very least, change, as the U.S. State Department is in the middle of a comprehensive review of the current approach of rapprochement. One area of focus, he said, was ensuring that Cuba makes “more substantive progress” toward greater respect for human rights inside country.” [sic].

Now, in support of President Trump’s hardline against the Communist military thugs in Havana, and to make sure that they meet “our demands” as part of the “more substantive progress,” the United States must dictate the following conditions:

  • The release of all political prisoners, and the immediate halting of persecution and arrests of dissidents in the streets and in their homes.
  • That Cuba’s Communist Party cease and desist from metastasizing its evil ideology, through military infiltration and indoctrination in other countries– which has been a highly effective means for the Cuban government to foment international communism, by destabilizing nations and entire regions, socially and economically– as in Venezuela, most of Latin America and large parts of Africa.
  • That any trade agreement involving the U.S. include sanctions against countries that do business with Communist Cuba.
  • That cultural and educational exchange programs between the U.S. and Cuba be halted immediately– since they only serve the purpose of pouring more tourism dollars into the pockets of Cuba’s brutal Communist dictatorship.
  • That travel to Cuba be limited to exiled Cuban families– who can prove that they have an urgent need to visit relatives. If a Cuban exile vacations in Cuba, then their “exile” status is not legitimate.
  • That the people of Cuba be allowed to hold FREE ELECTIONS– and that the Communist Party (in all its socialist manifestations) be outlawed in Cuba– because the people of Cuba do not need to be “transitioned” to “communism-lite”– through United Nations programs, like Sustainable Development / Social Justice, even if the Catholic Church is involved. Let’s face it, the Vatican has become a leader in the endorsement of United Nations socialist programs, which are mostly NGO’s.
  • This clean-up process must be handled as in Germany, where the Nazi Party was outlawed and many of its top officials were convicted after World War II.

The above points present the only acceptable “substantive progress.”

Anything else is a farce.

President-Elect Donald J. Trump will urgently need to overturn Obama’s friendly policy towards Cuba

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

The relations between Cuba and Iran are closer than ever. This means that Cuba is passing US intelligence to Iran. 

The United States has no business embracing the despotic Communist government in Havana, which has murdered and persecuted the people of Cuba since 1959. This is why Obama’s friendly policy towards Cuba and his warm embrace of the bloody Castro brothers is an embarrassment in the history of our nation.

Cuba is a powerhouse of sophisticated espionage in the service of our enemies. As such, President-elect Donald Trump will need to urgently overturn Obama’s friendly policy towards Cuba– and stop this dangerous situation.

Cuban Poetry for a Sunday Afternoon: José Ángel Buesa

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

José Angel Buesa was one of Cuba’s greatest poets. He was born in 1910 and died in Santo Domingo in 1982, exiled as an anti-communist from the land he loved.

I grew up reading and listening to his poems, which my mother would lovingly recite.

The following recitation of “La Sed Insaciable” performed by Spanish actor Rafael Taria, will move even those who are indifferent to poetry.

In Spanish– but the cadence and feeling are in the universal language of love.

Enjoy:

Socialist Political Correctness at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games

Socialist Political Correctness at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games

I’m not one to rely on social media, except for regular links to commentaries on my blog, which is where I prefer to cultivate my wide audience of readers in the USA and around the world. But given the fast pace nature of the Olympic Games, I have decided to post some of my reactions on Twitter, as events unfold. 

Here is my expression of support for TeamUSA, as well as some of my observations regarding the display of socialist political correctness at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games:

  1. Politics rule , so why not let athletes join . is a ISLAND PRISON w/57-yr. DICTATORSHIP!

  2. Hey Committee, STOP the LIES: is NOT .Chinese Taipei is a FARCE. Taiwan is a FREE NATION!

  3. rules . is NOT + farce (your $!).Just let athletes compete, for God’s sake!

  4. Shame on the Committee 4 changing to in order to appease the Beijing Commies. Chinese Taipei doesn’t exist!

SCRAMBLING HUEVOS: A day in the life of John Kerry as U.S. Secretary of State

Reading time: +/- 4 minutes of enlightenment.

Scramble your huevos, John Kerry is coming. No refrigeration allowed.

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Our Secretary of State, John Kerry, is apparently much too busy with diplomacy and “climate change” to confront issues like pederasty in Afghanistan, political persecution, torture and imprisonment in Cuba and China, as well as other powder kegs around the world. And whatever good Mr. Kerry may be doing by flying around the world and attending fancy soirées on our taxpayer money– is overshadowed by the statements he made on July 22 in Vienna during the Montréal Protocol High-level Segment.

Sit tight.

John Kerry thinks that combating the use of air conditioners and refrigerators is as important as combating ISIS!?!

I kid you not.

Here are three excerpts from his statements in Vienna [bold and yellow highlight added for emphasis]:

And the use of hydrofluorocarbons is unfortunately growing. Already, the HFCs used in refrigerators, air conditioners, inhalers, and other items are emitting an entire gigaton of carbon dioxide-equivalent pollution into the atmosphere annually. Now, if that sounds like a lot, my friends, it’s because it is. It’s the equivalent to emissions from nearly 300 coal-fired power plants every single year.”

“In Paris, we, the world, came together to set a goal of limiting the Earth’s warming to well below the magical number of 2 degrees centigrade and we even dared to suggest we try to get to 1.5. Amending the Montreal Protocol, my friends, to phase down HFC could help us avoid a full one half of a degree centigrade in that challenge. It is an enormous proportion of what we are trying to achieve. The magnitude of this single action that we have come here to try to (inaudible) cannot be overstated.”

Yesterday, I met in Washington with 45 nations – defense ministers and foreign ministers – as we were working together on the challenge of Daesh, ISIL, and terrorism. It’s hard for some people to grasp it, but what we – you – are doing here right now is of equal importance because it has the ability to literally save life on the planet itself. Week after week, month after month, year after year, we continue to see new evidence, scientific evidence, tangible evidence, of the danger that climate change poses to life on our planet. Last year was the hottest year in recorded history by far. Last month, the hottest month recorded. The month before that was the hottest month recorded. 2016 is on track to be hotter than last year. And the decade was the hottest decade in history, and the decade before that the second hottest in history, and the decade before that the third hottest in history.

As Secretary of State, John Kerry’s statements are patently disrespectful to the memory of the thousands of victims savagely murdered by ISIS, as well as a slap in the face to those who are slaves in ISIS-held territories. His statements are also an insult to our intelligence.

If you are a masochist, go right ahead and read John Kerry’s full remarks HERE.

I assure you that globalists multi-millionaire socialists like John Kerry will continue to run their air conditioners full blast in their mansions, as well as their big refrigerators and sub-zero freezers, which can be connected to their security systems. This, of course, is not for the “rest of us.” This is for those with vast sums of money invested in their wine collections and their gourmet kitchens. And the rest of the population will be forced to suffer the repercussions of their insane “climate change” policies.

Generations of boys have been, and continue to be terrorized sexually by pederasts in Afghanistan, while our soldiers are told to look the other way. Dissidents are being tortured and imprisoned in Cuba and China, Europe is under attack by terrorists– and the Middle East is blowing up– but Mr. Kerry, our Secretary of State, is preoccupied with your refrigerator.

It is painful to hear the constant news of terrorist attacks throughout the world– but it is even more tragic when we think that so many of our American soldiers have lost their lives to protect our freedom and our way of life– while our government officials have their heads in the socialist clouds.

Socialism is dangerous– and this is reflected in just one day in the public life of John Kerry. Imagine what else we don’t get to see or hear. So, turn off your refrigerator and scramble your huevos quickly, because John Kerry is coming.
