Havana is a time capsule from 1959. Communists were incapable of maintaining the city.
CUBAN EXILE SERVANDO GONZALEZ SAYS
IT'S UNREALISTIC TO EXPECT THE US TO
EXERCISE A POSITIVE INFLUENCE ON CUBA.
ON THE CONTRARY, HE LISTS THE WAYS
THE US IS BECOMING MORE LIKE CUBA.
By Servando Gonzalez
The April 6, 2015 cover of Time magazine showed a picture of a dilapidated house in Havana, with the question "Cuba: What Will Change When The Americans Arrive?"
Here's what I think: Nothing will change in Cuba because Castro's Cuba is more advanced [in the NWO] than the U.S.
Actually, Americans have much to learn from Castro's Cuba. No wonder David Rockefeller and other CFR honchos describe Castro's Cuba as "a model to follow."
What can Americans learn from Castro's Cuba? Among other things, they can learn how to destroy the middle class. For many decades, the CFR conspirators have been destroying the American middle class. Well, Castro did it in Cuba in just a few years.
Before Castro took power in Cuba in 1959 with the help of ...the U.S. government, Cuba had one of the most expansive middle class -- only second to the U.S. Today, there are only two social classes in Cuba: the hyper rich, a small group composed of Castro himself, his relatives and close associates, and the hyper poor, consisting of the 99 percent of the population living in the most abject moral and material misery.

Even more important, Castro did it without the help of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. A true accomplishment.
CASTRO FAR ADVANCED IN THE NWO
Americans could not show the Communists how to destroy an excellent medical care system while claiming that the calamitous new one is better. Nor how to destroy an excellent agricultural system that provided more than 90 percent of the needs of the population while gaining the admiration of Berkeley's "progressives" because allegedly the new system is ecologically sound? Nor how to destroy an excellent system of public education by turning it into a tool for ideological indoctrination? Can America teach how to turn a country where workers enjoyed one of the highest standards of living in Latin America into a nation of paupers?
Nope! The Castroists did it many years before the CFR conspirators did it in America.
What else Americans can teach Castro? How to create a pervasive system of prisons and incarcerate a large percentage of the population? How to create reeducation camps for dissidents? How to implement modern techniques of torture for political prisoners, including water boarding? Don't make me laugh. Castro has been doing all of this in Cuba almost since he grabbed power in 1959.
Another thing Americans can learn from Castro's Cuba is how to use the military to invade other countries to advance the interest of transnational corporations under the pretext of implementing democracy while passing as a hero of the progressive Left. Nothing exemplifies this more than the case of the Cuban invasion of Angola in 1975.
A few months after Castro's troops took control of the country, Angola became one of the U.S.' largest commercial partners in Africa. Chase Manhattan Bank, Bankers Trust, Citibank, and Morgan Guaranty, gave large loans to Angola. The business of General Motors, General Tire, Caterpillar, Boeing, IBM, NCR, Pfizer, Xerox, and other American corporations flourished in the country. Ninety five percent of Angolan oil was exported to Western countries. Castro's soldiers protected the refineries in Cabinda from "saboteurs," and Castro was paid in dollars for Cuba's services. Half of the production of Gulf Oil in Angola ended up in U.S. refineries. The consortium De Beers controlled diamond mines. So much for Castro's "anti-imperialist" and "anti-colonialist policies.
An area in which the Castroists excelled and they can teach Americans about is how to be rabidly anti black and nevertheless be lauded as a non-discriminatory society by the American "progressives." Even though currently blacks constitute close to 60 percent of the Cuban population, for many years only 15 blacks held seats in the 150-member Central Committee of Castro's "Communist" Party, and only six of the 24-member Politburo were black.
Photographs of Cuban army units show close to 90 percent of black soldiers. But officers, particularly high-ranking senior officers, are 95 percent white. Evidently Castro, like the leaders of many imperialist nations, uses racial minorities as cannon fodder. Most of the Cuban soldiers among the several thousands killed in Angola were black.
And what about full control of the press and the internet, stealing property from its legitimate owners, smuggling drugs into the U.S., using false flag operations, creating a countrywide system of prisons and concentration camps, stiff gun control laws, changing the country into a totalitarian police state, implementing a pervasive surveillance system to spy on the citizens, destroying the family as a social unit and creating a fascist regime disguised as a communist one? Obviously, Americans cannot help the Castroists in those fields in which they have done much better than Americans
MORE PIONEER ADVANCES
Most Americans ignore that many things we see now being implemented in the U.S. were successfully implemented in Castro's Cuba many years ago. One of them was political correctness. I remember that when somebody said something true, but damaging to the system, he was rebutted with the phrase: "Don't say that, because it is not political."
Another thing the Castroists pioneered is outsourcing jobs. The only difference is that, instead of outsourcing the jobs to countries with semi-slave workers, he exported the semi-slave Cuban workers -- mostly construction workers and physicians -- to other countries. Like the slave workers assembling iPads and iPhones in China, Cuban workers abroad don't get paid directly by their employers, who pay their salaries in dollars to the Cuban government. Then, the Cuban government not only pays the workers in devaluated Cuban pesos but also keeps more than 75 percent of the earnings.
Moreover, something the Castroists implemented and we will soon see implemented in America is a change in currency -- which resulted in stealing the people's money. Other things the Castroists pioneered and will come to America very soon is the harassing of effeminate homosexuals and interning them in reeducation camps, as well as stiff immigration laws to prevent people from escaping the country.
Nevertheless, there is something in which America excels, and which the Castroists should copy: having a single party disguised as two different ones, so the sheeple will live under the illusion that by changing the party in power everything will change for the better.
The bottom line is that, rather than Cuba changing to become similar to what America was in the fifties, America will continue changing to become a faithful copy of the New Gay World Order Castro has successfully implemented in Cuba.
Expecting otherwise is not only foolish but also highly unrealistic.

First Comment from Dan:
It's now clear that Cuba was an incubator of Communism in Western hemisphere, 90 miles off the coast of Florida, where I grew up. I recall the uneasy feeling felt in middle America when the Batiste regime was overthrown.
There was something odd about it, that you might not think of unless you lived back then. Current events make me certain that Castro's Cuba was a secret project from the start, protected by the hidden government that's manifest in the Council on Foreign Relations.
Castro walked on American Soil in April 1959 as a guest of the American Society of Newspaper Editors. He met privately with Vice President Richard Nixon for three hours. Washington played it as if they'd "snubbed" Castro, but I suspect they assured him of non-interference.
60 years ago the US bureaucracy was still split between the patriotic 'reactionary' faction and the New World Order architects and their minions. We need to take a more objective second look at the Kennedy Administration's position in that. The Kennedy's considered themselves in the lineage of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, and Woodrow Wilson.
It's time to consider that Kennedy's motive in botching the CIA's 'Bay of Pigs' fiasco was motivated to protect the Castro project.
North America was a very insulated, utterly safe place in 1959. Most people's impression of Cuba came from Carmen Miranda movies and the TV show 'I Love Lucy'. Look at the famous illustration by Norman Rockwell of a family at Thanksgiving dinner. That's what we were. So watching grainy film clips of swarthy beaded Latinos in sweaty Army surplus fatigues waving their AK-47's and firing squads gunning down business men in suits on our Caribbean border was a horror show. What kind of society and future could come from a rowdy gang of killers but totalitarianism?
I was only five-years-old, but perhaps because of my young age I remember watching real death in the grainy firing squad clips. When I saw Castro's image I thought he was Satan.
Something the media will never mention and Obama won't address is that in 1959, Cuba had a well educated middle class. These are the first people purged in a Communist takeover and Cuba was no exception. A few of these refugee families were placed in my Florida neighborhood. Aside from the accent, they assimilated easily. Middle class tends to be similar everywhere. Between 1960 to 1962 the Catholic Church evacuated 14,000 Cuban children to the United States whose families - stuck in Cuba - didn't want them indoctrinated.Florida absorbed most of the Cuban refugees. Being Cuba's best, they brought no crime or 'revolution' with them, and became productive Americans quickly.
So Obama came back from his pleasure tour in Cuba walking on a cloud, having met his childhood idol Fidel Castro, Communist dictator and general Sith Lord. A speech he gave to American students last week should scare the hell out of people.
Important Obama speech after returning from Cuba. He says Capitalism and Communism are different ways of doing the same thing, so "do whatever's practical, and choose from what works".
