Who Dictates Genocide Against Cuba?

 Can Just One or Two U. S. Cubans Dictate It??

      On Dec. 1-2018 the BBC used the above Getty Images photo to illustrate an article entitled: "THE BUSH DYNASTY -- THE MODERN KENNEDYS."
     As shown above, the BBC article says that the Bush Dynasty started with industrialist Samuel Prescott Bush, the father of investment banker Prescott Sheldon Bush, who became a U. S. Senator in 1952. Prescott was the father of George Herbert Walker Bush who became CIA Director, Ronald Reagan's Vice President for 8 years, and then President for one 4-year-old term. It was the George Herbert Walker Bush who was the father of George W. Bush, who became President for 8 years, and his younger brother Jeb became a two-term Governor of Florida. Starting with George Herbert Walker Bush, it was the Bush Dynasty that elevated the exiles from Little Havana in Miami into a powerful economic and political power in both Florida and in the whole USA.
     The dynamic of the U.S.-Cuban conundrum changed dramatically when George H. W. Bush figuratively and essential anointed Jorge Mas Canosa the leader of the Cuban exiles in Miami, and thus for the entire nation. Mas Canosa was born in Santiago de Cuba in 1939 and fled to Florida because of the triumph of the Cuban Revolution on Jan. 1-1959. Like other notable anti-Castro Cubans such as the famed & infamous Luis Posada Carilles, etc., Mas Canosa quickly was put on the U. S. payroll and sent as a soldier to the then secretive Army of the Americas at Fort Benning in Georgia. That is where, unknown U. S. citizens, that the U. S. had long-trained soldiers and police from U. S.-backed dictatorships such as Batista in Cuba, Trujillo in the Dominican Republic, Somoza in Nicaragua, etc. Like Posada and others, Mas Canosa left Fort Benning as a 2nd Lt. trained to joined the CIA-led Bay of Pigs attack on Cuba in April of 1961 that was supposed to recapture Cuba but instead made Fidel Castro, who led the frontline defense, more entrenched in his firm control of Revolutionary Cuba. After the Bay of Pigs debacle for Miami and the U. S., GHW Bush decided Mas Canosa could dictate the demise of Cuba in the U. S. while having the unchecked backing of tax dollars and others mainstays of the U. S. government. Quickly Mas Canosa quickly created massive jewels for himself and for Miami...such as the Cuban American National FoundationRadio-TV Marti, the Helms-Burton Act, etc., etc. Long before 1976 when he became CIA Director GHW Bush, known to Americans as a World War II hero and oil man from Texas, had been instrumental in orchestrating and benefiting from anti-Cuban and pro-Little Havana/Miami projects. But anointing Mas Canosa as the Cuban dictator on U. S. soil was the major Bush Dynasty-Little Havana nexus.
      Thanks to the Bush Dynasty, Jorge Mas Canosa, the soldier from Fort Benning, quickly became a billionaire in Miami and his three sons, led by Mas-Tec CEO Jorge Mas, are billionaires today. Around the Miami area today there are many monuments to Jorge Mas Canosa in the form of prime schools, highways, etc., etc. Although he died unexpectedly of a heart attack in 1997 in Coral Gables, no other Counter Revolutionary Cuban in the U. S. has ever come close to the enduring power Jorge Mas Canosa had...and which to this day guides the ongoing, unchecked, lucrative and powerful Counter Revolutionary movement in the United States. From the 1950s {correct} till today {correct} the Bush dynasty reshaped the United States because of its tight economic and political alignment with extreme Counter Revolutionary Cubans from the Batista-Mafia dictatorship that the Cuban Revolution overthrew on Jan. 1, 1959.
    This 1989 photo pinpoints the indelible ties with the Busy dynasty and the most fierce Counter Revolutionary Cubans who had settled in the Little Havana section of Miami as the prime political forces in Florida, a prime state that has 29 vital Electoral Votes in presidential elections. The day this photo was taken in 1989 when young Jeb Bush had moved to Florida and, as Campaign Manager, used Bush power to put Ileana Ros-Lehtinen in the U. S. Congress from Little Havana-Miami. She was born in Havana and exiled to Little Havana with her powerful Counter Revolutionary family after the 1959 triumph of the Cuban Revolution. Obviously Jeb Bush considered her to be the most powerful Counter Revolutionary Cuban, and Jed latched onto her as his ticket to become the two-term Governor of Florida, which happened, and he expected that to be his pathway to be a U. S. President like his older brother George W. Bush and his grandfather George H. W. Bush, but that didn't happen.
    Once Jed Bush had used the self-serving Bush dynasty to put Little Havana's Ileana Ros-Lehtinen in the U. S. Congress in 1989, she remained there for 38 LONG YEARS as an ultra-powerful and unchecked Counter Revolutionary with extreme power over drastic legislation that helped Little Havana drastically while also drastically assaulting Cubans in Cuba. And as the photo shows, she soon began to make sure that the Bush dynasty helped her to also send other Little Havana extremists into the U. S. Congress, such as the two men flanking her in the above photo -- Havana-born Lincoln Diaz-Balart and his younger brother Mario Diaz-Balart, who have been in the U. S. Congress, together or singularly, since 1993 -- almost three decades. The Diaz-Balart brothers are the sons of Rafael Diaz-Balart who was an ultra-powerful and rich Minister in the Batista dictatorship in Cuba and, after the Cuban Revolution's triumph in 1959, became an ultra-powerful and rich Counter Revolutionary leader who quickly created in South Florida The White Rose, the very first Counter Revolutionary anti-Cuban paramilitary group on U. S. soil. And thus, while neither American citizens nor the American media are supposed to even mention it, Ros-Lehtinen and the Diaz-Balart brothers are unchallenged when it comes to dictating Cuban policies in Washington just as their father did in Havana. Mario Diaz-Balart is still in the U. S. Congress while both Ros-Lehtinen and Lincoln Diaz-Balart have retired from their long stints in Congress but remain powerfully committed to continue dictating the USA's Cuban policies from their South Florida strongholds.
      With supreme power in Little Havana after the Bush dynasty put her in the U. S. Congress for 38 years, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen has been able to point to younger Miami Counter Revolutionaries that she has successfully mentored and steered into the U. S. Congress, such as Marco Rubio!!!!
      This photo shows a News Conference in which Rubio, the Diaz-Balart brothers, and Ros-Lehtinen ruled the day in outlining policies. Please understand, as a democracy-loving American I do believe that Little Havana Cubans should have a voice in the USA's Cuban policies, but I don't believe they should be able to dictate Cuban policies in the U. S. the way the Batista/Luciano dictatorship, supported by the U. S. and the Mafia, dictated things in Cuba back in the 1950s. For the situation in the United States whereby a handful of Cuban extremists {as depicted by the photo above} can dictate Cuban policies in the U. S. since 1989 is, I believe, as disastrous to most Cubans, Cuban-Americans, and Americans -- just as the Batista-Mafia-U. S. rule was in Cuba in the 1950s. During Trump's four years as President, he turned Cuban policies totally over to Marco Rubio, Mario Diaz-Balart, and Mauricio Claver-Carone because Trump knew all three were life-long extremists as Counter Revolutionary Cubans. During Biden's 100+ days as President, he has totally turned Cuban policies over to the Republican Senator Rubio and the Democratic Senator Bob Menendez, because Trump knows both of them have built their economic and political bases as Counter Revolutionary Cubans. So in America's money-crazed two-party political system, nothing changed after the Trump-to-Biden transition. In other words, in regards to Cuba, only a handful of U. S. Cubans are allowed opinions related to Cuba. Surely, the opinions of 11 million Cubans on the island don't count at all regarding the genocide endlessly aimed at them from Washington and Little Havana. And, in fact, the opinions of most Cuban-Americans don't count at all in the United States when it comes to Cuba.
     For example, Carlos Lazo is a Cuban-American professor in Seattle and he, along with many of his students, have ridden their bicycles the 3-thousand miles from Seattle to Washington to beg members of Congress and the Trump-Biden White Houses TO STOP THE GENOCIDE AGAINST CUBAN FAMILIES THAT APPEASES ONLY A SELF-SERVING HANDFUL OF U. S. CUBANS!!! But, within the bowels of the U. S. democracy, Carlos Lazo's opinion doesn't count at all when it comes to genocide against Cuban families on the island. On the other hand, the now propaganda-spewing but still powerful Washington Post, now owned by JEFF BEZOS whose stepfather was Cuban-born Miguel Bezos, allows the most extremist Counter Revolutionary Cuban dissidents to write massive Editorials but the Washington Post, as far as I know, wouldn't allow a great Cuban-American like Carlos Lazo to say a word or to be mentioned in a Washington Post article. That is one example of the low-esteem Americans now for the mainstream media in the U. S. where, at prior times, they were deeply respected.
    In the USA's two-party political system, Republican Senator Marco Rubio from Florida and Democratic Senator Bob Menendez from New Jersey in these last few days in May of 2021 are easily dictating the USA's Cuban policies that many decent people...surely 11 million Cubans on the island!!!...consider to be genocide against masses of innocent people in a tiny country being pounded by self-serving and not-so-innocent people in a much larger nation. Of course,  neither everyday Americans nor the mainstream U. S. media are supposed to care. Also, no one in the U. S. is supposed to notice that either Rubio or Menendez seem to always be the Chairman of the U. S. Senate's powerful Foreign Relations Committee...to better dictate policy against Cuba, which is, of course, now an independent nation that is not dominated by foreign powers like Spain {for over a century} or by America and the Mafia, at least till the Cuban Revolution triumphed on January 1, 1959. Periodically since 1959 the U. S. government -- meaning Congress and the White House -- allowed other voices to speak about U.S.-Cuban relations but mostly the long Bush dynasty -- which included three Presidential terms, two Vice Presidential terms, a very bloody CIA directorship, two terms as Governor of Florida, etc. -- self-servingly teamed with Counter Revolutionary Cuban extremists economically and politically. Importantly, the Bush power anointed Cuban exile extremist Jorge Mas Canosa as the Cuban dictator on U. S. soil, namely Little Havana in Miami. That soon resulted in Canosa becoming the first Cuban billionaire in Miami as well as the founder of ultra-powerful enterprises that massively enriched/empowered already powerful U. S. Cubans while also massively starving-depriving-and-making miserable the masses of Cubans on the island. All of this was orchestrated by the Republicans in the Bush dynasty and then expanded further by the Republican Trump administration from 2017 till 2021. But even the George W. Bush presidency, for example, refused to activate Title 3 of the Batistiano-orchestrated congressional Helms-Burton Act, which Canosa made sure would vastly enrich certain U. S. Cubans while vastly depriving Cubans on the island. But Trump did activate Title 3 although even President George W. Bush, and surely all decent people, believed it was too grossly genocidal to activate against Cuban families on the island. When the Democrat Biden replaced the Republican Trump as President of the U. S. on Jan. 20-2021, many people around the world believed that well-known Title 3 genocide against Cuba would surely be curbed or ended. But, of course, that hasn't and won't happen. As back as in the 1950s when the U. S. and the Mafia self-servingly supported the brutal-thieving Batista dictatorship in Cuba, and since 1959 has supported the Batistiano contingent feasting on Cuban bones from their strongholds in the U. S., the island of Cuba has been considered a piggybank for rich Americans and, of course, for the politically connected Batistiano-Cuban exiles who fled the victorious Cuban Revolution starting in the wee hours before daylight on Jan. 1-1959. In that constantly evolving milieu for over six decades, while also drastically reshaping the U. S. democracy into a Little Havana image, the U. S. currently appears to have two co-Cuban dictators -- Republican Senator Marco Rubio and Democratic Senator Bob Menendez. In other words, in a two-party political system, Rubio & Menendez now have all of their Cuban bases covered. Surely, although Republican Trump is no longer a factor, the Democratic control of both Congress and the White House is also a patsy for being dictated to by Rubio and Menendez. {P.S.: I am aware that it is generally too unhealthy for U. S. citizens and U. S. journalists to agree with anything that criticizes Little Havana's control of America's Cuban policies, but it would be, I think, interesting to see or hear the benefactors of such policies try to justify them!!}.
      As you see above, Rubio and Menendez -- taking advantage of having control of the USA's Cuban policies in both the Senate and in the Biden White House -- can easily dictate to President Biden's Secretary of the Treasury YET another policy to appease Little Havana while also trying to further starve Cuban families on the island. This, of course, has been going on for decades but now money-crazed Washington has recently become more-and-more at the unchecked mercy of the likes of Rubio and Menendez. What, you ask, can 330 million Americans who don't benefit from such policies but actually fund them do about it? In my opinion the answer is: NOTHING!!
     Back in 1952 a generation of Americans didn't object when the U. S. government teamed with the highest echelon of the Mafia to support the brutal/thieving Batista dictatorship in Cuba. Then that same generation of Americans didn't object when the leading remnants of the Batista dictatorship, chased off the island by the victorious Cuban Revolution, replicated Batista's Havana on U. S. soil in Miami, known as Little Havana. The great Editorial Cartoonist Carlos LaTuff is known worldwide for his depictions of the U.S./Little Havana genocide against Cubans on the island, as depicted above. In the United States of America, when Americans are not ashamed of the images of the USA shown above, I believe the USA's Cuban policies are as detrimental to America as they are to Cubans in Cuba. But as an American and as a democracy-lover, Carlos LaTuff's famed images of the USA's genocide against Cubans on the island do shame me!!!
      As shown above, Carlos LaTuff says that the U. S. is taking advantage of the deadly COVID-19 pandemic to further tighten the embargo against Cubans on the island. For a couple of centuries, the most democratic U. S. Democracy would have helped Cuban families on the island during such a pandemic as COVID-19. But...no more!! 
      As shown above, Carlos LaTuff says that the U.S. levies huge fines on foreign and U. S. companies that might do some business with Cuba, and that the U. S. routinely promotes people and countries that help the U. S. eviscerate Cuba while the U. S. also routinely PULL THE RUGS FROM UNDER NATIONS THAT MIGHT BE FRIENDS TO CUBA!!!
     With his emphatic international Editorial Cartoons -- and with a microphone -- Carlos LaTuff, a Brazilian, says that the U. S. Embargo/Blockade against Cuba since 1962 "has been 'legal' for all these decades because the rest of the world cowardly allows a nuclear and economic superpower to get away with it against masses of people in a much smaller nation. But being afraid of the U.S's economic and military power is no excuse."
     More and more people, it seems, are beginning to agree with Carlos LaTuff particularly now that the Biden administration in May of 2021 refuses to ease the genocide against Cubans on the island even while Cuba is trying mightily to produce its own vaccine to combat the deadly COVID-19 pandemic. In other words, there were times since the 1950s that decent people in the Democratic Party tried their best to ease or to end the Republican Party's self-serving genocide against Cubans on the island. But no more!!!!
    Now, as far as Cuba is concerned, Marco Rubio is the Republican dictator of Cuba; and Bob Menendez is the Democratic dictator of Cuba. And in a two-party political system, I believe that is an ultra-undemocratic disaster for both the island of Cuba and for the United States of America!!!
