Che! The West's Fatal Embrace of Communism
February 27, 2009
Both Ernesto Guevera and Fidel Castro were cultivated and trained as Soviet agents
as teenagers. Guevara, an Argentine, was liaison between the Soviet espionage network
and the Castro forces who masqueraded as an indigenous force. In fact, they were
largely bankrolled and supplied by the Soviet Union.

Americans can't expect to avoid destruction as long as they continue to embrace Communism in all its myriad disguises.
Symptomatic of the problem is a new four hr. 17 min biopic of Soviet Comintern agent and terrorist Che Guevara. Rather than make movies about genuine American heroes, Hollywood is celebrating people dedicated to the destruction of Western Civilization.
Movie critic Mick LaSalle of the San Francisco Chronicle cannot understand why Director Steven Soderbergh made the movie:
"If Soderbergh made as idol-worshiping an epic about George Washington or Abraham Lincoln - actual heroes with tangible, positive legacies - people would gag at the naive treatment.. Instead of making the case for Guevara as a hero, Soderbergh just assumes we all agree. The movie is the communist guerrilla version of the Stations of the Cross, in which we see Guevara at various stages, enduring various hardships. The invitation is not to think but to admire, and maybe to worship."
This is not the first time Hollywood has presented this ruthless killer as a saint. In 1969, Omar Sharif played "the most controversial rebel of our time" with Jack Palance as Castro. Then, there was "The Motorcycle Diaries" in 2004 and at least a half-dozen made-for-TV films.
Communists always portray their demented drive for world domination in terms of serving the people. Surprisingly, many suckers swallow this bait. But, why do these dupes include the US corporate media establishment?
WHY THE MEDIA (AND EDUCATION) SOFT-PEDAL COMMUNISM
The US mass media (and most corporations) are controlled by the central banking cartel, i.e. the Rothschilds, Warburgs, Rockefellers etc. These are the same people who sponsored Communism.
The guiding principle behind world events is their plan to translate their monopoly over government credit into a world monopoly of power, business, culture and religion.
These bankers use a Hegelian dialectic to achieve their end. They created both Capitalism and Communism as thesis and antithesis. Their aim is a synthesis, combining the political and cultural tyranny of Communism with the appearance of Capitalist free markets. China or even Cuba may be the end model for the New World Order.
In 1953, Ford Foundation President, H. Rowan Gaither told Congressional Investigator Norman Dodd that his instructions were to use "our grant-making power so to alter our life in the United States that we can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union."
This is why the Communist Party term "political correctness" has become part of our lexicon. Why the elite media and foundations promote feminism, homosexuality, pornography and promiscuity to destabilize society. Why they sponsor "diversity" to undermine American identity. Why the education system is devoted to Leftist indoctrination; and conservatives have been driven out. Why the culture industries are dedicated to sex, violence, alienation, deviance and the occult. We'll never know what we have missed in terms of cultural works that boost our sense of who we are and where we should be going.
Eustace Mullins relates this story: Early in his career, a NY publisher (who are all banker controlled) told his agent that it's too bad Mullins had decided to go against them. Look at the success they arranged for such "high school" talents as Hemingway, Steinbeck and
Faulkner. Unfortunately, Mullins would be consigned to the wilderness.
Rupert Murdoch, whose media operations are subsidized by the Rothschilds, said last week, "We are in the midst of a phase of history in which nations will be redefined and their futures fundamentally altered."
Such anecdotes confirm that we are being dispossessed and prepared for servitude. Our culture, most of our assumptions about the world, are controlled by the central bankers.
GUEVARA, CASTRO AND THE CUBAN REVOLUTION
Fidel Castro came to power in Cuba only because of the covert help of New World orderlies in the US State Dept. and mass media. They cut off arm sales to Batista while at the same time allowing Castro to be supplied, partly by Russian submarines. This told the Cuban military which way the wind was blowing and they quietly defected.
This is the conclusion of Nataniel Weyl in "Red Star Over Cuba" (1962, p.152) Weyl was a Communist in the 1930's and knew the top leaders of the Cuban Communist Party. He actually worked for the central bankers at one time, as Latin American research chief for the Federal Reserve System. He is one of many Jews who recognized Communism as a dangerous ruse and devoted his life to exposing Comintern subversion in Latin America.
Weyl says that both Ernesto Guevera and Fidel Castro were cultivated and trained as Soviet agents as teenagers. Guevara, an Argentine, was liaison between the Soviet espionage network and the Castro forces who masqueraded as an indigenous force. In fact, they were largely bankrolled and supplied by the Soviet Union.
"Fidel's secret weapon was money---incredible millions of dollars, with which he bought "victories." He bought entired regiments from Batista's officers and, on one occasion, purchased for $650,000 cash an entired armored train, with tanks, guns, ammunition, jeeps and 500 men." (p.141)
"The Cuban forces themselves never won a military victory," US Ambassador Earl Smith later testified. The basic reason for the defeat of Batista's army was that covert US intervention shattered their morale.(152)
Rothschild-dominated Freemasonry was probably also a factor. Communism is a Masonic order, and both Castro and Guevara were masons. (Other Freemasons include Stalin, Trotsky, Lenin and most Presidents incl. Barrack Obama. ) Freemasonry is big in Cuba: there is a 15- story Grand Lodge of Cuba HQ in Havana.
According to Humberto Fantova's "Che! Hollywood's Favorite Tyrant", Guevara was complicit in the execution of 10,000 Cubans after the revolution: He was "a bloodthirsty executioner, a military bumbler, a coward, and a hypocrite...it's no exaggeration to state that Che... was the godfather of modern terrorism. And yet Che's followers naively swallow Castro's historical revisionism. They are classic "useful idiots." the name Stalin gave to foolish Westerners who parroted his lies..."
Nat Hentoff met Che at the United Nations and asked "this idealist" -- "Can you conceive -- however far into the future -- a time when there will be free elections in Cuba?"
"Not waiting for his interpreter, Guevara broke into laughter at my naively ignorant question. He made it clear that I had no understanding of a true people's revolution, firmly guided by Maximum Leader Castro."
If the Cuban Communists were sponsored by the central bankers, how do we account for the CIA's Bay of Pigs invasion? This failure was probably designed to enhance Castro's image and reinforce the Hegelian dialectic. If the US could go to Vietnam "for the sake of democracy," it certainty could have invaded Cuba officially. The debacle opened the door for the missile crisis and the assassination of Kennedy, both part of the agenda.
How do we account for the CIA's killing of Guevara? He had served his purpose and was worth more dead than alive.
The Rothschilds and Rockefellers must be laughing up their sleeves at the young rebels who embrace Che Guevera as a symbol of social justice and equality. In fact, Communism is the mirror image of Western imperialism, benefiting the same people.
Communism is devoted to the concentration of all wealth in the hands of the central bankers. In theory, the wealth is "public" but in fact, the bankers own and control the State.
Guevara helped establish a Communist regime that may be a harbinger for Obama's America. Yes, the people are all equal -- dirt poor. Yes, they get free education and health care but education is indoctrination and people cannot toil for nothing if they are sick. Their MD's get $20 a month. The people are paid in idealistic platitudes.
Essentially, you have a prosperous island (oil, sugar, nickel, tobacco, coffee) with a large labor force that works for a pittance. All the wealth seems to flow to the Communist nomenklatura and their sponsors. Secret police are everywhere and no one can say a word against the regime.
I was in Cuba in February and when I remarked to a cab driver who had lived in Havana for 50 years that he was there for the revolution, he immediately clammed up. Anyone who doesn't accept the total Communist control of business and thought is subject to imprisonment.
Herberto Padillo, a poet who was tortured for "deviationism" said after his escape to the US: "I have lived in frightening laboratories for social experimentation, spaces walled by test tubes, where the same experiment always ended with the same rsult: tyranny. I have learned something of the value of freedom." ("And the Russians Stayed" Carbonell, p.295)
This is where we are heading when we tolerate a government full of New World Orderlies (Communists) and mass media that venerate their ruthless agents. To them we are "useless eaters." Throughout history the privileges the masses have enjoyed have been the exception, not the rule. We are gradually reverting to the norm.
Obama's "Change" is code for the Communist NWO. This is what is meant by "Progressive." Leftists who want to "change the world" are not told it is going to be much worse. They are destroying the society that gave them freedom and prosperity; they are "change agents" for poverty and dictatorship.
The fact that no one asks where the borrowed trillions are coming from proves that our society is complicit in its own destruction. You see. the government doesn't need to borrow from the Rothschilds. It can create money out of thin air itself. That's all the Rothschilds do.
Never has a society embraced its own demise with such blissful indifference.
