It says a lot when Castro, Putin and Chavez families praise Obama…

Obama is getting reelection support from three world leaders notorious for anti-American and Communist views.

What’s so bad about the Castro, Putin and Chavez families?

Let’s start with Hugo Chavez, who fancies himself the cult of personality that will eclipse the long-fading allure of Castro (more on him later).

In 2009, Chavez was considered by many to be the future of Communism. Freedom Watch accused him of terrorism, even accusing him of conspiring with the Taliban and al-Qaida. Exiled Venezuelan journalist Antonio Guzman-Blanco says Chavez maintains close ties to FARC and ELN Marxist, two drug-trafficking guerrilla terrorist groups dedicated to destabilizing neighboring Colombia.

“Chavez has been sympathetic to the regimes in Libya, Iran and Iraq and has been recently tied to the ETA Basque terrorist organization,” writes Guzman-Blanco. ”It is widely believed that he also has ties to Arab terrorist organizations, and that he provided safe passage to Colombia for several IRA operatives.”

In 2008, the Miami Herald identified Chavez’s minister of defense as an international narcotics kingpin. Prominent Venezuelan journalist Ricardo Guanipa fled the country under death threats after he exposed widespread Chavez appointees’ corruption. In 2010, he conducted ‘Military Communism Reforms‘ to kill the Venezuela economy.

This socialist-leaning Communist ruler also reportedly called Obama a “good guy.” His support follows that of the Castro family, which has ruled Cuba under a communist dictatorship for more than 50 years.

The Castro family is next on my list. For the past 50 years, the Castro family has ruled Cuba with the grip of Communist terror. During the 60’s, Castro opened training camps for guerrilla fighters under Soviet supervision. As you may recall, most of our parents lived through a dark time known as the Cold War, where they had blackout curtains, fear of the A-bomb and a continual alert status for scrambling into bomb shelters.

Castro’s hostility towards the US goes back to his father who fought against the US in the Spanish-American War. His aggressive stance against America is reflected in a letter sent to his secretary in the summer of 1958, now exhibited in the Museum of the Revolution in Havana.

“I have sworn to myself that Americans are going to pay dearly for what they are doing. When this war is over, a much wider and bigger war will begin for me, the war I am going to wage against them. I realize that is going to be my true destiny.”


During the sixties and seventies, besides exporting the revolution to Latin America and Africa and supporting terrorism in Europe through ETA, IRA and the PLO, among others, Castro continued building a subversive network in the U.S. Members of this network are recruited from a pool of young Cuban exiles in the so-called Maceitos brigades, who go to Cuba to cut sugar cane, and young Americans brought to Cuba under the Venceremos brigade which, according to Granma’s July 27,1999 edition, reached 7,000 visitors.

Claire Sterling reports in her book, The Terror Network,

“The same meticulous selection went into recruiting 2,500 young Americans in the Venceremos Brigades…the Brigades visited Cuba in ten contingents between 1969 and 1977. There, under Colonel Simenov’s fatherly eyes, they learned how to mount truly effective campaigns to destabilize the United States.”

The Castro regime has jailed political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin’s and murdered them at a higher rate than pre-war Hitler’s. Read more…
After the Cuban revolution led by Fidel Castro in 1959, a large Cuban exodus began as the new government allied itself with the Soviet Union and began to introduce communism. From 1960 to 1979, hundreds of thousands of Cubans left Cuba and began a new life in the United States. Most Cuban Americans that arrived in the United States initially came from Cuba’s educated upper and middle classes. Between December 1960 and October 1962 more than 14,000 Cuban children arrived alone in the U.S. Their parents were afraid that their children were going to be sent to some Soviet bloc countries to be educated and they decided to send them to the States as soon as possible. This program was called Operation Peter Pan (Operacion Pedro Pan). When the children arrived in Miami they were met by representatives of Catholic Charities and they were sent to live with relatives if they had any or were sent to foster homes, orphanages or boarding schools until their parents could leave Cuba.
Last but not least, I move on to the Putins.
Which means, death and disaster by the pound. To quote Time, the “War on Terror” has given the Russian government a handy excuse for their favored excessive terrorist acts.
In late 1999, when Bush was campaigning for the presidency, he vowed to start urging an end to Putin’s war on Chechnya.
“Even as we support Russian reforms, we cannot support Russian brutality,” he said during a speech at the Reagan Library in California. “When the Russian government attacks civilians, leaving orphans and refugees, it can no longer expect aid from international lending institutions.”
Some days later, Condoleezza Rice, who later became Bush’s National Security Adviser after his election, reiterated the need for financial pressure against “what is really a quite brutal campaign against innocent women and children in Chechnya.” And in the fall of 2000, then U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright told the U.N. that the Chechen war “has greatly damaged Russia’s international standing and is isolating Russia from the international community.”
But when Bush announced his own war on terrorism, all this rhetoric quickly evaporated. Putin, who had been the first to call Bush with his sympathy after learning of the 9/11 attacks, graciously offered to help with the invasion of Afghanistan. He let the U.S. ship supplies through Russian territory and did not object to the U.S. setting up bases in Central Asia, where the local despots quickly caught on to the opportunity. Uzbek President Islam Karimov, for instance, allowed the U.S. to build a permanent base, perhaps hoping that his new alliance with the war on terrorism would help reduce U.S. scrutiny of alleged human-rights abuses in Uzbekistan.
“It all flowed naturally into the picture of a global war on terror,” says Kasyanov, who by that time had been promoted to serve as Putin’s Prime Minister. “There was no more criticism … It just ceased to be a thorny issue.”
What happened in Chechnya is considered genocide. You know, where one group of people nearly entirely wipes out another. Lots of dead people, starving children. Hurting. Terror and fear. Though thousands of Chechens are murdered every month and daily atrocities riddle the nation, the world remains relatively unaware and silent about the genocide. A physician in Doctors without Borders professed that:
“It is common for friends and neighbors to be arrested or simply “disappear.” As authorities look poised to continue their policy of moving people against their will, from one inadequate and insecure location to another, the plight of people trapped in this nightmare remains largely ignored.”
 So what is the point of dragging out some of the seemingly unimportant history of terrorist acts committed in the name of a philosophy of Communism?
Clearly stated: because those responsible for some of the worst atrocities of the past 50 years are in support of Obama.
Why would any anti-American, Communist leadership support a candidate for the presidency? And why would we not see this as cause for alarm?
