IN line with all of HUSSEIN’s high crimes and misdemeanors (as is known, they are voluminous – and counting – on the domestic and foreign fronts alike), few patriots are paying attention to two converging and precipitous wildfires. War-fronts. They piggyback each other. Igniting. Combustible.
INCONTESTABLY, it takes a clear-eyed understanding of the ever-powerful nexus between the reds and greens to recognize the encroaching dangers. Warning signs. Alarm bells. Yes, they are more than force multipliers.
AS is said, a picture is worth a thousand words….
“Here are two brother countries, united like a single fist,” said socialist Hugo Chávez during a visit to Tehran last November, celebrating his alliance with Islamist Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Che Guevara’s son Camilo, who also visited Tehran last year, declared that his father would have “supported the country in its current struggle against the United States.” They followed in the footsteps of Fidel Castro, who in a 2001 visit told his hosts that “Iran and Cuba, in cooperation with each other, can bring America to its knees.” For his part, Ilich Ramírez Sánchez (“Carlos the Jackal”) wrote in his book L’islam révolutionnaire (“Revolutionary Islam”) that “only a coalition of Marxists and Islamists can destroy the United States.”
|Ken Livingstone literally hugged Yusuf al-Qaradawi.|
It’s not just Latin American leftists who see potential in Islamism.Ken Livingstone, the Trotskyite former mayor of London, literally hugged prominent Islamist thinker Yusuf al-Qaradawi. Ramsey Clark, the former U.S. attorney general, visited Ayatollah Khomeini and offered his support. Noam Chomsky, the MIT professor, visited Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah and endorsed Hezbollah’s keeping its arms. Ella Vogelaar, the Dutch minister for housing, neighborhoods, and integration, is so sympathetic to Islamism that one critic, the Iranian-born professor Afshin Ellian, has called her “the minister of Islamization”…..
CLEAR as a bell. There you have it. The absolute ideological nexus. Alliance.
INDUBITABLY, as repeatedly reported at this site, the reds and greens are not only literally locking arms, they are outright embracing, in anticipation of America’s (with Israel as the cascading and knock-on domino) downfall.
RESULTANT, it is under said menacing umbrella that the following should be taken VERY seriously.
FIRST, as a backdrop: many are aware of HUSSEIN’s quest to empower America’s mortal foes – whether reds or greens – and this benchmark must sink in. As such, when he ran into Cuba’s arms, it shouldn’t have surprised, regardless of the high crimes and misdemeanors in doing so. Ditto with Iran via the “House of Bribes.”
SO par for HUSSEIN’s wrecking ball against America, what else should have been expected, other than the ACTUAL enrichment and empowerment of Cuba’s communist leaders via money transfer mechanisms as the opening prize? Anyone?
With little fanfare, the U.S. government recently amended regulations to allow Cuban government officials and members of the Communist Party to benefit from the softening of sanctions, including receiving cash remittances and other perks.
The new beneficiaries include members of the Cuban Ministry of the Interior (MININT), the Central Committee of the Communist Party (PCC) and other branches of the Cuban government.
The change is part of the new round of regulations announced last week by the Obama administration. Along with measures that attracted widespread attention — such as the removal of the restrictions on the purchase of rum and tobacco by American travelers — this more discreet provision debunks a long-standing policy of prohibiting U.S. transactions with most members of the Cuban government, its political organizations and defense system.
As the updated Cuban Assets Control Regulations now stand, the prohibitions remain only for the members of the Politburo of the PCC, members of the Council of Ministers and high-ranking officials in the Cuban armed forces (FAR).
The category of “prohibited members” of the Cuban government and the Communist Party previously included members of MININT; the PCC secretaries and members of its Central Committee; members of Parliament; the Supreme Court; state media editors; deputy ministers and mid-level officials within the ministries; directors of companies and other state institutions; secretaries of the Confederation of Cuban Workers; and local chiefs of the Defense Committees of the Revolution (CDR).
These officials can now receive remittances without limits and take advantage of other benefits such as having their mobile phone accounts recharged from the U.S.
MININT has under its jurisdiction the police, the Department of State Security and the Directorate for Immigration and Naturalization, among other agencies. The Central Committee of the Communist Party, on the other hand, controls all state institutions, including the media.
The U.S. government has begun a low-key cooperation with MININT, which has been present in several official dialogues, including one that took place in Miami in February of this year. Members of this ministry also visited U.S. military installations in Key West in March.
As part of the efforts to normalize relations, the U.S. removed Cuba from the list of countries that sponsor terrorism. Some Cuban companies were also eliminated from the list of entities that are blocked by the Treasury Department.
Critics of the Obama policy toward Cuba immediately questioned the measure.
“The Obama administration has just opened the door for the overwhelming majority of Castro regime officials to take advantage of the sanctions relief that was purportedly aimed to support the Cuban people and, more specifically, for Cuba’s independent entrepreneurs,” Mauricio Claver-Carone, director of the U.S.-Cuba Democracy political action committee that seeks to maintain the embargo, said in a scathing statement.
Claver-Carone added that “neighborhood repressors,” members of “its puppet legislature, secret police” and intelligence officials can “enjoy unlimited remittances, gift parcels, U-turn banking transactions, communication devices and even employ U.S.-based internet-related services.”
CONSEQUENTIALLY, due to the above – and so much more – treachery via the disemboweling of the nation’s hyper-power status, as well as its moral compass, a heretofore unseen battle will emerge within America’s shores.
BUT, once again, Americans (westerners at-large) will be oh, so shocked, when the next major global war breaks out. No doubt, it will erupt in the near future. Again, the U.S. homeland will be deeply in the mix.
KNOW this: neutralizing – but preferably defeating – America is the highest priority for enemy states, as well as non-state (Islamic) terror actors. And whatever it takes – emphasis placed – to bring down America, have no doubt the reds and greens will aim towards, be it separately or collaboratively. In fact, they have been working towards this very same end-goal for decades.
AS excerpted from this author’s April 2013 book review:
During a dangerously volatile period of domestic terrorism, young anarchists were plotting the upending of America. In the vanguard stood the Weather Underground and the Black Panthers. Implanted in 1969 in the heart of a revolutionary movement, Larry Grathwohl, a 22-year-old Vietnam vet, found himself acting as an FBI informant. Inserted into the Weather Underground organization under deep cover, he became privy to their terror plots as well as the leadership’s “reasoning”. It is this facet which still resonates today.
BRINGING DOWN AMERICA is a gripping tale of plots and subplots, each one aimed at “the violent overthrow of the bourgeoisie [and] the establishment of the dictatorship of the proletariat”, as Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, and Jeff Jones exhorted in their 1974 manifesto, “Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism.” The subtext of this gripping memoir is brought to the fore in Chapter 14: “The Cover Is Blown:”
Once in the van we drove around the city… while we were driving Maynard & Green (my FBI handlers) began telling me about the mystery man waiting for me. He was an Arab guerrilla. My meeting was to be in strict confidence. They refused to tell me why he was in the country, how he got in, obviously he was working for the U.S….
The implication was very clear. The FBI understood that the Weathermen were deepening their foreign ties. It was inevitable that Arab terror contacts would be made. Thus, Ali Baba, an Arab informant, was sending a warning to Larry: having him as a “go-between” would mitigate any hesitation to cooperate with the Weathermen, in effect, keeping the FBI one step ahead.
Not only that, Ali Baba issued other warnings to Larry: “the Arabs plan to strike at the next Olympic games in 1972 [reviewer’s note: and they made good on their threat] and there is talk of doing something at the World’s Fair in Spokane in 1974.”
For the record, El (Al) Fatah was the referenced Arab guerrilla group. Yes, the very same terror outfit spawned by the godfather of suicide terror, “Chairman” Yasir Arafat, a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. In tandem, the Weathermen conspired with the KGB and attendant communist regimes. The war being waged against the U.S. by the radical left and Islamist jihadis is premised on the U.S. as the Western spear and Israel as its twin “imperialistic” cousin. It has been playing out for decades, in one form or another. Nothing has changed other than the fact that many escaped justice and are entering their senior years. Despite their advancing age, they are as dangerous as ever — perhaps more so…..
AND with all due “credit” given to HUSSEIN and surrogates, WMD’s are now in the mix. Non-shockingly, he received the Nobel “Peace” Prize, as did the godfather of suicide terrorism, “Chairman” Arafat!
EVEN so, despite all of HUSSEIN’s (and surrogates, with Soros and Clinton Inc. in the forefront) machinations, if millions of patriots – many of whom are ex-military – took to heart the real “art of war”, well, even an impending war on the homefront would be less threatening. Surprising.
“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
MOST significantly, the key element, the “art of surprise”, is always a main contributory factor to a nation’s defeat, regardless of its size and military prowess.
SOMETHING to (more than) think about and to ensure doesn’t happen.
TO wit, millions of patriots – many of whom are well-armed and army-trained – should never allow it to come to this: too little (prep), too late.
OTHERWISE….heaven forbid….lights out on freedom!!
