China Exports Tyranny

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on September 1, 2021 by andelino

Cuba’s suppression of the largest anti-government protests in six decades was made possible by China’s export of “digital authoritarianism.” Now the Chinese are more deeply entrenched, just 90 miles from the United States.

“We are not afraid. We want change, we do not want any more dictatorship.” This was the statement a Cuban protester gave to the BBC as the largest protests in six decades tore across the island nation.

This protester, who insisted on anonymity, and tens of thousands of his countrymen had reached a breaking point. They understood that the severe shortages of food, medicine, electricity and basic supplies were the result of their government’s incompetence and corruption. So starting on July 11, they took to the streets in more than 40 cities to demand regime change.

Seeing the unprecedented numbers that had come out filled many protesters with hope. From Havana to Santiago de Cuba, they chanted: Freedom! Yes we can! But the Cuban regime answered: Tyranny. No, you can’t. The government shut down the protesters. And a new report shows that it did so thanks largely to the Chinese Communist Party.

Cuba has only one Internet access company: Etecsa. And the main technology providers for Etecsa are all Chinese: ZTE, Huawei and TP-Link. These Chinese firms—all of which are de facto extensions of the CCP—played a major role in building Cuba’s telecommunications networks, including its national fiber-optic network, undersea cables, hot spots and mobile Internet.

Back in 2016, the China Business Network boasted that Beijing’s contributions to Etecsa made China’s position in Cuba as firm as a rock in midstream.”

Last year, the Chinese were found to be using this rock-solid position to export the CCP’s “digital authoritarianism” to the Cuban regime. An investigation by the Swedish Qurium organization proved that China was enabling Cuba’s government to block its people from viewing regime-critical websites—just as China does with the “Great Firewall of China” within its own borders.

When the protests broke out in Cuba, the regime understood that the demonstrators were relying on social media and mobile Internet (which they have only had on the island for three years) to coordinate marches, warn each other of secret police, and broadcast their message beyond the island. In order to disconnect the Cuban people from each other and the wider world, the regime pulled the plug on Internet and mobile networks, and selectively cut landline phone service.

The strategy worked. Within days of the Internet blackout and accompanying government crackdown, the protests fizzled out. The Cuban regime then set to work identifying demonstration leaders and tightening its grip on the island.

This technology shutdown could not have happened without China. “The key to the regime’s ability” to orchestrate the blackout “was China,” Leland Lazarus and Evan Ellis wrote for the Diplomat on August 3.

China’s role in suppressing the Cuban people and prolonging the hardships they suffer at the regime’s hand is shameful. But it also considerably deepens China’s power in Cuba, and therefore presents a danger to the United States.

Geopolitical Futures founder George Friedman warned in July that China’s influence in Cuba, which has expanded significantly thanks to China’s role in squelching the protests, means the Chinese could potentially block American ports without actually blocking them.”

He wrote: “The choke points are the waters between Cuba and the Yucatan Peninsula and between Cuba and Florida. The port of New Orleans and the port of Houston depend on these two outlets to ship and receive critical commodities for the United States. From Cuba, a long-term threat could be maintained. It is an ideal place from which to manage the U.S.”

The Caribbean is vital to U.S. security. This sea not only connects the East Coast with the Pacific Ocean via the Panama Canal, it guards the mouth of the Gulf of Mexico. Half of America’s seaborne trade passes through the Gulf. So a foreign power that controls the Caribbean could cripple the U.S. economy by restricting its access to oceanic shipping.

This geographic reality is why Russia and China want to challenge U.S. dominance in the Caribbean. These aspiring superpowers are forging alliances with socialist governments in Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela. If these Latin dictatorships become staging grounds for Russia and China, a coalition of nations could potentially cut off U.S. access to the Panama Canal and seal off the Straits of Florida, the Windward Passage and the Yucatán Channel.

As disturbing as this possibility sounds, these strategic gates and many others, would become economic and military ways to “preparing to storm  America’s castle,” via these sea gates.

Paradise Cuba

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , on April 23, 2020 by andelino

Fidel Bernie Sanders recommends you watch the videos below to get a taste of what is coming down the road to America if he gets elected.

What do you think of when you hear the name Cuba? Well for me it brought up romantic notions of revolutionaries, rum and steamy tropical nights. But what was life like on the island for the common man living in modern day Cuba? Well myself and Alinchik flew there to find out

Do you hate the morning commute to work? Well I doubt you have it as bad as Cubans we joined on their morning commute. An hour standing in what is basically a cattle truck that rattles over broken roads that even locals struggle with. Bring your sick bag!

Most of us have access to the basic essentials in life. We take being able to use an ATM for granted, that the trains won’t run out of petrol and be cancelled or that milk will be available in a shop when you visit. But the people of Cuba are not so lucky. They live under a different system and to be honest, it’s not working out well for them…So tell me, could you handle live under that system?

Cuba, the land of cigars and rum and random nutters who throw your beer on the floor. Join me as I show you the behind the scenes from our trip through this perplexing, frustrating but friendly and fascinating communistic country.

Cuban Political Prisoners

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , on March 28, 2016 by andelino

Che Obama 18

At a joint press conference with El Che Obama, Cuban “dictator” Raúl Castro was asked about “political prisoners” being held by his government.

“Why are there Cuban political prisoners in your country?” CNN reporter Jim Acosta asked.

Raúl Castro immediately went off on the question saying, “Give me the list right now of political prisoners to let go of them. Mention it now, which political prisoners?”

“Tell me the name or the names or when we conclude the press conference you give me a list of the prisoners. And if there are political prisoners then before night falls, they will be free. There!” said the dictator.

When Obama was asked by ABC News anchor David Muir “if he would provide Castro with a list of political prisoners to call the dictator’s public bluff,” Obama refused.

“The truth of the matter is, we’ve given him lists in the past,” Obama said, “and they have responded intermittently to our engagement. And this, I think, is an example of why it was my belief that this would be a more successful mechanism for us to advance the values that we care about than an embargo, and silence, and no communications.”

That begs the question then “why didn’t Obama bring a copy of the past list given to Castro with him to Cuba?”

Earlier in the press conference Castro also said, “Both countries can cooperate and coexist in a civilized manner that is mutually beneficial and rise above the differences we have and will likely continue to have.”

Issues regarding “human rights” remain one of the core “disagreements” between the U.S. and Cuba in spite of “normalized” relations via the reestablishment of “diplomatic” ties.

Shortly before Obama’s arrival in Havana, several protesters from “The Ladies In White” were violently arrested by Cuban authorities.

Obama is to be given “credit” for raising the issues of “civil liberties and free elections” with Raúl Castro, and saying that Cubans should be “free to speak their minds and protest” against their government without fear of “arbitrary detentions.”

Being raised and educated by “liberal” Progressives who have argued for nearly “six” decades that Cuba is a socialist “paradise,” Obama did not “go” far enough.

Che Obama 15

Here are some of the questions “weak, limply and wimpy” El Che Obama should have “asked” Raúl Castro:

  1. When will you allow free and open elections to be held in Cuba, as promised by your brother Fidel shortly after he took command of the country in 1959? How long will the Cuban people have to wait to exercise this basic right of a democracy?
  1. When will you open your government’s archives to allow historians and others to document just how many Cubans have been executed at the order of your brother and other communist officials? The figure given in “The Black Book of Communism” is between 15,000 and 17,000. Is that too high or too low an estimate?
  1. When will you release all political prisoners, especially the husbands, sons, fathers, and friends of the “Ladies in White,” who have provided you with the names of those who are in jail for speaking out for libertad? “The Black Book of Communism” estimates that 100,000 Cubans have been placed in prisons and forced labor camps for “political” reasons. Is that figure too high or too low?
  1. When will you allow the free market to truly operate in Cuba so that the average worker will be able to earn a decent wage rather than the penurious $20 a month he presently receives? When will you allow credit cards—an essential instrument of modern commerce—to be used and accepted? When will you allow open Internet and Wifi for Cuban people?
  1. When will your brother Fidel admit that Che Guevara—admired by many young Americans—was not a high-minded revolutionary, but a cold-blooded murderer who functioned as Fidel’s personal executioner? Isn’t it true that he was a great admirer of China’s Cultural Revolution and that it was he, not Fidel, who invented Cuba’s first “corrective labor camp”—i.e., a gulag?
  1. Isn’t it true that Cuba is not a socialist “paradise,” but a troubled third-world country ruled by a communist regime that discourages religion, denies freedom of the press and of speech, bars legitimate elections, treats the judiciary as a lapdog, and reveres the Communist Party above all things?

Any “meaningful and enduring” relationship between Cuba and America must be based on the “truth.” And the truth about what “communism” has done to the Cuban people for nearly sixty years has “yet to be told.”

This is the hand of a weak, limply and wimpy leader…

Che Obama 07

“Let’s give a big hand to this stupid gringo. He sold out America for a smile and a photo op.”

Obama: They make fun of me. They say I am weak, limply and wimpy. They say I was born in Africa and I am Michelle’s bitch. Oh, Godfather, I don’t know what to do, I don’t know what to do…

Raúl: You can act like a Man!  What’s the matter with you? Is this what you’ve become, a Hollywood Finocchio who cries like a woman? “Oh, what do I do? What do I do?” What is that nonsense? Ridiculous!

Castro Brothers

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on December 28, 2014 by andelino

Cuba 01

For the “first time” in American history President Obama has “normalized” relations with “men.”

The owners of Cuba, the “Castro” brothers, have been given the title “Cuba” by the Obama administration.

The land, property, and people America “seized” two generations ago and “reduced” through economic sanctions as our “private” plantation island has been now given “full” country status again.

Cuba 05

Opinions on this historic feat of “autocratic magic” on the part of Obama, by turning the “island” plantation and its “ruthless” owners into a “legitimate” state, pour in from around the world.

The only people who “cannot” give an opinion that actually would count are “Cuban” people.

They even cannot “voice” an independent “opinion” on the subject.

Cuba 04

Because “Cuba” is not the word for this Island. “Cuba” is a euphemism for two “men,” Fidel and Raul Castro.

Cuba presently is “nothing” but a large tropical island with “people on it” that do not have a “government” that “represents” them.

There is no country “Cuba” to normalize relations with. The “Castro” brothers “run” Cuba like an organized “crime” syndicate.

Cuba 03

They “extort” money from the population and “spread” it around to Communist party “apparatchiks” to ensure their loyalty, just “like” our President Barack Hussein Obama.

Cuba 02

Ted at ThePeoplesCube who saw the above photo shared this story:

“I had a Spanish teacher in high school who was born and raised in Cuba and was there when Castro took over. Castro confiscated his “house,” “burned” all his books in his pool while he and his family were “forced” to watch, confiscated all the “money” in his bank account and then gave him a choice.”

Go read about that choice, and ask yourself if it can happen “someday” soon here in America.


Secretary of State John Kerry, on “behalf” of President Obama, is negotiating a “treaty” with Raul Castro to “find and apprehend” runaway Cubans and “return” them to Cuba.

The Obama administration expressed “hope” that Congress will give President Obama “permission” to sign the “Fugitive Slave Act” but reiterated that should Congress “fail” to approve it, Obama will be “forced” to sign a “executive order” to return “runaway” Cubans.


Bring those Cuban runaways back to Cuba with all of their money and possessions.

Obama has “achieved” a first in pardoning “ruthless” dictators.

Unfortunately for him, “history” will remember it forever.

McDonald’s in Cuba!

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on December 19, 2014 by andelino

McDonalds in Cuba 01

Our ever so “benevolent and gracious” President extraordinaire, Barack Hussein Obama has made the “fantastic” decision of opening up “Tourist” travel to the island “paradise” of communistic Cuba at the personal “request” of Pope Francis!

McDonalds in Cuba 05

This is “extraordinary” news for people who wish to “discover” the wonderful world of “Next Tuesday” a mere 90 miles from America’s shores.

McDonalds in Cuba 07

This realization calls for “celebration” as people begin to “flock” to the wondrous tropical “Island” known only to a “selective” few.

The “secret” of that untouched “Utopia” fostered by the “Castro” brothers has “finally” be lifted.

McDonalds in Cuba 10

What will happen when “too many” discover the virtual “heaven on earth” of socialism and “want” to stay?

No longer will the “success” of socialism be “hidden” from view and all will “wish” to partake in this “new” found freedom.

McDonalds in Cuba 08
This is “great” news for the oppressed, “minimum wage” earners of McDonald’s in America!

Imagine the “flood” of underprivileged workers “streaming” south to the island “paradise” of Cuba!


Why work for “slave” wages in America when you can pick up a “cool” $9 an hour… Oh, wait… that’s “$9 a month” minimum wage for a 44 hour week. “Oops!” My bad. Disregard…

Castro once “promised” workers 30% share of “profits,” but now pays “doctors” only a paltry 7%.

Why isn’t Cuba “held” to the same moral standard as McDonald’s?

McDonalds in Cuba 03

Seems to me we could learn a “lesson or two” from Havana.

Here is a “tribute” to President Obama’s “decision” on Cuba.

As everyone knows, the U.S. has “persecuted” those great and compassionate leaders, “Fidel and Raul” Castro, for so “many” years.

McDonalds in Cuba 06

And who wouldn’t “love” a guy like Obama who “killed” the rich and “liberated” their assets for the “poor.”

Now that’s what is called real “community organizing.”

Obviously, the “selfish” thousands who “escaped” from Cuba to the U.S. over the years did not “appreciate” all that Obama had “done” for them by “normalizing” relations with Cuba.

The Castro’s Are Free At Last!
