Stand by for Mauricio’s Rant

The bile must be flowing in the headquarters of Capitol Hill Cubans as the Diaz Balart and Ros Lehtinen terrorist collaborators attempt to digest the Pastoral letter issued by the Catholic bishops of Cuba entitled ‘Hope does not disappoint’. The document calls for democratic political reform by the Castro government in conjunction with the ongoing economic reforms and for improved relations with the United States.  

“The hopes of a better future also include a new political order,” said the Catholic bishops in their pastoral letter published on its website ( “As has been the case in economics, we must have in our Cuban reality an update to national legislation dealing with the political order,” they added.

The Episcopal Conference is chaired by the Bishop of Santiago de Cuba, Dionisio Garcia. Capitol Hill Cubans have used vile words in the past to attack a humble man of God, Havana Cardinal Jaime Ortiega who is personally responsible for the release of over 3,000 prisoners from Cuban jails; they have referred to him as a Castro collaborator and Castro’s lackey. It will be interesting to see what labels Luis Posada’s collaborators and lackeys attach to Bishop Garcia. 

This may even be of more import so that rather than have Mauricio earn his keep by issuing a written rant Ileana might hold a ‘presser’ to denounce it with Mario standing beside her, modeling his usual blank stare.


Five Heroes, One Coward, and Dumb and Dumber

Today Cubans are adorned in yellow ribbons in honor of the Five Heroes, four of whom remain jailed in the United States after being convicted on charges of spying in the Banana Republic of South Florida in a kangaroo court orchestrated   by the terrorist collaborator Ileana Ros Lehtinen.

These five men had come here as Cuban patriots seeking to defend their country from terrorist attacks driven by Ros Lehtinen and her terrorist brethren, Orlando Bosch and Luis Posada Carilles. They uncovered numerous plots in planning stages for attacks against government and civilian targets in Cuba. But as is de rigeur in the Banana Republic of South Florida the tables were turned under pressure by the terrorist collaborator Ros Lehtinen and the five were arrested. The Miami Cartel went into overdrive, intimidating jurors, holding pro-prosecution rallies outside the courthouse in much the same way the KKK did back in the old South. After a seven month trial, the intimidated jurors needed less than three hours to find the five guilty. One has since completed his sentence, but the others remain unjustly incarcerated in federal prisons. Hopefully one day President Obama or President Hillary Clinton will stand up to the terrorist collaborator Ros Lehtinen and right this wrong.

Now if one wants to examine an individual with a questionable character that came out of Cuba one could look at the former Deputy Interior Minister of the Batista Dictatorship, Rafael Lincoln Diaz Balart. This coward fled Cuba as his brother-in-law Fidel Castro was approaching Havana on December 20, 1958. In testimony rife with perjury before a US Senate Committee in 1960 Diaz testified that he had important business come up in Paris. Five days before Christmas, the French would summon someone from across the Atlantic on business? Oh, and he took his entire family with him.

Rafael Lincoln Diaz Balart was merely a coward, running out ahead of a trial and execution which would likely have taken place in the first weeks of 1959 after that Revolution was victorious. According to documents and verbal accounts in Cuba, Diaz Balart would have been charged with ordering the execution of 2,000 of Batista’s political enemies, and would have been charged with raping 74 minor girls. The goons from the Interior Ministry would round up high school age girls off the streets to be turned over to the US Mafia to be put into service as prostitutes in the brothels. Girls who protested that they were virgins and knew nothing about sex were allegedly taken to the Deputy Minister for indoctrination.

Rafael Lincoln Diaz Balart was one of those charlatans who proclaimed until the day he died that he ‘would not go back to my country until the Castro Regime was out of power’. Convenient cover – he had criminal indictments waiting for him if he ever set foot in Cuba which would likely have brought a death sentence.

Today his spawn Lincoln and Mario carry the torch. Known in Cuba as ‘Coco y Loco’ (dumb and dumber) a label slapped on them  by their uncle Fidel Castro these two have a visceral hatred for the people of Cuba. Because the people of Cuba never rose up to overthrow Fidel to let their family and some of the other Cuban terrorists in Miami swoop in and take over the country, they along with terrorist collaborator Ros Lehtinen oppose any initiative in Congress that would benefit the Cuban people under the guise that it ‘helps prop up the regime’.

The Diaz Balart brothers and Ileana Ros Lehtinen have collaborated with and given aid and comfort to terrorists in Miami for two decades. As George W. Bush said, “If you help a terrorist, you are a terrorist.” Which Cubans should be jailed and which should be free?  The Banana Republic has skewed justice; the innocent are confined and the terrorists are free.

La Cochino Ileana Blows a Gasket

The woman Cubans call “La Cochina” (The Pig) blew a gasket yesterday when swimmer Diana Nyad completed her swim from Havana to Key West. “Who let that bitch make it to shore? One of my terrorist thugs Luis Posada Carriles had a torpedo ready to kill the bitch. What to hell happened?

“My terrorist confederates have managed to kill scores of innocent people through the years. One decrepit old lady swimming along managed to get through? Some bastard’s head is going to roll for this!

“Now non-Cuban Americans are going to start hollering about visiting Cuba to see where Nyad jumped into the water. If that happens and they start talking to everyday Cubans, those bastards are going to tell them the truth and me and my terrorist supporting allies Mario and Lincoln will be screwed. People will learn about the alleged crimes of our fathers which prevented them from ever returning to their homeland. I’m so pissed I’m going to get my little bitch Mauricio Claver-Carone in here and let the guys work him over.” 

Meanwhile in Havana Mario Garancha Herrera, president of the “Take a machete to Ileana Club” renewed his invitation to La Cochino to visit Cuba, promising to have 500 men prepared to greet her.

Capitol Hill Cubans Satire

            Capitol Hill Cubans and their terrorist leaders are in overdrive today fearing the success of Diana Nyad’s swim from Havana to the United States. Mauricio Claver-Carone, the group’s intellectually impotent director issued a statement which stated, “We at Capitol Hill Cubans are very concerned that this woman might reach our shores. We have concerns that she might be carrying the Cholera virus as a secret plot by the Castro thugs to bring their epidemic to the United States.

            “We know that e-coli has cause much greater pain and suffering in the US than cholera has in Cuba, but lies are our stock-in-trade therefore we have to over-hype this outbreak. We demand that Ms. Nyad be stopped in her tracks as soon as possible.”

            Puppeteer Lincoln Diaz Balart was unavailable for comment, but his brother Mario ‘The Dumb One’ issued the following statement: “We are making all attempts to work with fishermen with large nets to scoop up jellyfish and mako sharks to be dropped in her path to bring her swim to an end. Uh, I think that is correct; I didn’t have my brother Linc to help me write my speech.” 

            La Cochino (as she’s nicknamed in Cuba), Representative Ileana Ros Lehtinen was more forceful in her condemnation. “Who does this bitch think she is? We reserve Mondays for our lapdog Mauricio to embellish stories about the Ladies in White being abused at Sunday Mass, and we spend all day celebrating their abuse and toasting the secret police so we can trash Castro’s goons.

            “Now we’ve got Castro’s lackey stealing the spotlight. Well, I’m counting on dimwit Mario to round up jellyfish and sharks to stop her, but if that doesn’t work Luis Posada tells me there’s still an old torpedo in Orlando Bosch’s storage facility that he has been itching to use. We’ll blow that bitch out of the water and send a message to others: Don’t mess with us, we’ll take you out.”

Does the $100 benefit Family or Fidel?

Ileana Ros Lehtinen (IRL), the Congresswoman from Coral Gables has a litany of worn out phrases that she spits out like a copy machine gone haywire whenever any kind of ‘negative’ information comes out of Cuba. Most of them are verbose and designed to please her own ears.


            However one verbal grenade that IRL likes to toss repeatedly is ‘reducing the amount of remittances that can be sent to Cuba’, as payback for anything and everything the Cubans do. During the administration of President George W. Bush the amount that Cuban-Americans could send back to family in Cuba was reduced and limited to $300 per quarter. Certainly this pleased IRL because she has long shown a disdain for the Cuban people who refused to rise up against Castro in order that the Batistani’s might go back and take over the country. IRL’s constant refrain is ‘this money is propping up Castro and his family.’


Unfortunately that refrain has taken hold with some of the naive members of Congress who have been hoodwinked by IRL and the Diaz Balart duo through the year.  So let’s take a look at this claim. First of all the Cuban government has been propped up for quite some time by Venezuela and China. Chinese container ships and Venezuelan tankers bring consumer goods and fuel to the country in a steady stream with ships arriving almost daily. So the ‘regime’ is not exactly destitute, despite the claims of a woman who has never been in the country since she was a young child.


And so what is the truth about the family remittances? Fortunately for the Cuban people President Obama in 2009 lifted all limits on family remittances, a move that thrilled Cubans and Cuban-American families in the US but no doubt had IRL spitting nails. “How dare President Obama do this,” she probably asked. “Those people down there need to be punished for not rising up against Fidel. All these octogenarian Cuban dinosaurs here in Miami have dreamed of going back and restoring Cuba to its Batista glory, and those people never rose up against Fidel. They don’t deserve money; they don’t deserve to eat pork or chicken. Let them eat Castro’s rice and beans!”


And that is the route that many remittances take. The recipients go to the government store to buy pork and chicken and other ‘luxury’ food items. I’ve given cash gifts to close friends in Cuba and that is exactly where the money goes, to buy food for their family.  Does the government realize a profit from these sales? Of course, but even if it’s as high as 20% that is a secondary realization.


The primary realization is that this family has $100 worth of food products in their freezer and refrigerator. In IRL’s world that is a bad thing because she despises the people of her homeland. But you can bet that Jesus is pleased that the Cuban people have been given the opportunity to enjoy some of the bounties of life courtesy of their US families. And contrary to statements by other Cuban-American politicians, the Cuban government does not take a percentage ‘off the top’ on remittances.  The Cuban nationals receive every penny, of course converted to CUCs.


Some of these remittances also go to the new entrepreneurs in Cuba who are starting up small businesses. The same facts apply: the entrepreneur has the full value of the money to purchase goods and services from other entrepreneurs or from state stores. If some of it goes as profit to the government, well the money has served the greater good – the needs of the entrepreneur.


A parallel to the remittances can be drawn with money that goes to IRL’s campaign. Consider than in the 2011 – 2012 election cycle the University of Miami donated $10,450 to Ileana Ros Lehtinen’s campaign. Are there students at The U who work hard for their tuition money and who find Ileana Ros Lehtinen an absolutely loathsome and despicable woman. Do you think they are happy with their tuition money going to support her agenda? In that respect, Ileana Ros Lehtinen and Fidel Castro are like two peas in a pod.

Cuba 54 – The Book

JPGcover - Crop
Cuba 54 is about the wonderful people of Cuba and how they have been abused for 54 years by the Miami Cartel, made up of remnants of the Batista Dictatorship which was toppled in 1959.  Among it’s many topics the book details acts of terrorism perpetrated against US and Cuban targets by terror cells operating from Miami with support and protection from members of the US Congress.
 The book debunks many Miami-based falsehoods about Cuban life,
and lays forth a path to end this decades old grudge driven by vengeful & morally bankrupt Cuban-Americans, offspring of the remnants of the Batista Regime. The book is based on Paul LeBon’s real life experiences and interaction with individuals across Cuba over Nine Mission trips. Those in the ‘Miami Cartel’ who claim to be experts on Cuba have never been there! Yet they inflict their rage and animus on the people who have refused to overthrow the man who destroyed their crime syndicate known as the Batista Dictatorship.
And the Miami Cartel holds our government hostage as they perpetuate a $40 Million a year scam known as the Cuban Democracy Movement. Most of that $40 Million makes its way into the pockets of sycophants, hangers-on, and parasites in Miami who pay tribute to morally bankrupt elected officials and operate organizations which are rife with nepotism, cronyism, and corruption. Very little of that $40 Million ever makes it’s way to Cuba. Many citizens in Cuba have been stunned to view the IRS 990 forms of these groups showing how much money they receive in the name of ‘Cuban Democracy’ and how much is squandered by Miami parasites. Cuba 54 will open the eyes of any moral citizen as to what is going on in Cuba as a result of the greedy and amoral conduct of the Miami Cartel.

Rafael and Ted Cruz – Biggest Cuban Con Artists since Rosie Ruiz

Before the bombings at the Boston Marathon this year, the biggest scandal to hit the Marathon was 1980 when a non-sweating Cuban-born woman with flabby calves named Rosie Ruiz rode the subway across Boston to the finish line and claimed to have run the entire 26.2 miles. What made this especially scandalous was that she crossed the finish line as the first woman and was crowned winner, much to the shock of the professional racing community who had never heard of this Cubana-Americana. Within days she was stripped of her crown.
Well, after a thirty year hiatus of high profile Cuban Con Artists, we now have the father son team of Rafael and Ted Cruz. Ted was elected to the US Senate last year, riding the coattails of his father’s lies about having fought in the Cuban Revolution at age 14 and fleeing Cuba  for his life . Ted and Rafael Cruz have misled the Tea Party, the Republican Party, and the voters of the Great State of Texas with false tales of heroism in the Cuban Revolution. Furthermore Rafael’s stories of working as a 50 cent an hour non-English speaking dishwasher in Austin, Texas while attending English-only University of Texas are likely hogwash, but if they are true as the Senator insists, they would have subjected Rafael Cruz to being deported as an illegal immigrant. (what is referred to in a Tea Party You Tube video as a ‘job stealing wetback working for sub-standard wages stealing a job from an American’)
This likely lawbreaker Rafael Cruz could not have obtained a Social Security Card from the INS as he claims. Foreign students did not qualify for SS Cards, and the cards have never been issued by the INS. They have always been issued by the Social Security Administration via US Mail.
Rafael Cruz states: “So I found myself at 14 years old involved in a Revolution.” Rafael was 14 in 1953. In 1953 there was one incident, the July 26 raid on the Moncada Barracks. Fidel Castro and his rebels who survived were jailed then released in May, 1955 and they departed for Mexico. They returned from Mexico on December 2, 1956. The first battle of the Revolution took place January 17, 1957 at the Mouth of the Plata River. This is around the time Rafael Cruz – the son of an affluent Matanzas, Cuba family and ally of the Batista Dictatorship – would have been anticipating leaving Cuba to attend the University of  Texas in the late summer of 1957.
This Con Artist tale begs the question: how does a boy who claims he had left his home in Matanzas at age 14 and was gone for four years ‘in the Revolution’ missing all four grades of high school get accepted at an American university, especially by just ‘writing a letter’ at the last minute. No surprise that Rafael Bienvenido Cruz is not mentioned in either Museum of the Revolution in Cuba.
Cubans who fought in the Revolution were incensed at hearing Cruz’ claims that he escaped death several times and managed to get away ‘by the Grace of God.’ The say that he ‘urinates on the graves of true youth heroes like William Soler, Jose Echeverria, and Frank Pais.’ The living Cuban heroes label Rafael Cruz a ‘bola de grasa’; a greaseball. The true heroes suspect that Rafael Cruz, the son of an affluent family, was possibly a spy for the Batista Dictatorship who later granted him an exit visa, perhaps infiltrating the FEU or the AAA and setting up youth leaders for torture and execution.
The bola de grasa even goes so far as to claim that Fidel Castro used to travel around Cuba ‘talking about hope and change’ though Fidel never made any public speeches during the run up to and execution of the Revolution. This claim merely allows the Cruz Cuban Con Artist to compare Barack Obama to Fidel Castro. The scary part if that the suckers in groups like Freedom Works and Tea Party believe his crap hook line and sinker. A con man comes along once a generation, but there are suckers born every minute, wearing tea bags and American flags.
Liar, Liar Pants on Fire Cruz Videos
There are two Ted Cruz You Tube videos. One exposes the fraudulent claims by Rafael Cruz of heroism in the Cuban Revolution with rebuttal and commentary by actual heroes of the Revolution. Also highlighted is misrepresentation of facts and Rafael Cruz’s illegal work history by Senator Ted Cruz. It runs approximately 15 minutes.
Full Video with all of Rafael Cruz Tall Tales, Fraud, Deception and Illegal Work History
(criminal work history, in Tea Party terminology) Also lies and deception by Ted Cruz
The second video is abbreviated and deals simply with Rafael Cruz’ illegal work history when he claims he came to the US in 1957, with affirmation by Senator Ted Cruz. It runs just over 2 minutes
Two Minute Abbreviated Version – Rafael Cruz’ history as an illegal, working for substandard wages and stealing a job from an American
Thanks to Bob Weir Flower Mound, TX
His American Thinker article raised red flags about Rafael Cruz’ tall tales and led to Rafael being exposed as a fraud and Ted as a liar supporting that fraud
