Castro Profited from Communist Scam

November 26, 2016

(left. Castro making the Trump Masonic hand sign) 

Communism is a scam. The people work for peanuts in the name of "equality" and "social justice" while  leaders like Castro are billionaires and live high on the hog.  Sure, the people get free health care and indoctrination (education) but so what if you live in poverty in a police state? 

According to Nathaniel Weyl,  Ernesto Guevera and Fidel Castro were trained as Soviet agents. The "revolution" was largely funded and supplied by the Soviet Union. But they couldn't have succeeded without the complicity of the US, proof that the Cold War was an Illuminati charade. The Left's infatuation with Castro Communism is a symptom of mental retardation 

Yes, the people are all equal -- dirt poor.

I've been to Cuba on vacation. It's a country with a rich heritage and thriving economy that was murdered
 and left to decay when Castro took power in 1959 . At the time, Cuba had the second highest standard of living in Latin America, higher than Ireland or Austria, and twice the per capita income of Japan or Spain. (Fidel, Fontova p. 82) 

Communism is so dysfunctional that even food is in limited supplyGenerally, the food is what you'd expect in a submarine a month from port. Citizens also have no political rights. 

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 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. 

When I asked a cab driver about the revolution, he immediately clammed up. Anyone who doesn't accept the Communist version of reality 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 result: tyranny. I have learned something of the value of freedom." ("And the Russians Stayed" Carbonell, p. 295)  

 JFK dropped the ball when he failed to invade Cuba during the Bay of Pigs. It's absurd that the US was "defending freedom" in Vietnam but did nothing to help an enslaved population of seven million people 90 miles from its shore. I doubt if the CIA seriously intended the Bay of Pigs invasion to succeed. While I find Communism repugnant, I support Obama's lifting of sanctions because this should help the average Cuban.   


Fidel Castro came to power in Cuba 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 supplying Castro, partly by Russian submarines. This told the Cuban military which way the wind was blowing and they quietly defected.

weyl.jpgThis 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 satanic ruse and devoted his life to exposing Comintern subversion in Latin America.  

Weyl says that both Ernesto Guevera and Fidel Castro were 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 entire regiments from Batista's officers and, on one occasion, purchased for $650,000 cash an entire armoured 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)

GLdC2.jpg(Left, Freemason HQ in Havana) 

Rothschild-dominated Freemasonry was probably also a factor. Communism is a Masonic order; both Castro and Guevara were Masons. Other Freemasons include Stalin, Trotsky, Lenin and most Presidents incl. Barack Obama. Obviously Castro was installed by the Masons.  Freemasonry is big in Cuba: there is a 15- story Grand Lodge of Cuba HQ in Havana. A compass and square is on top of the globe.

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'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."

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. 


Communists always portray their demented drive for world domination in terms of serving the people. Not surprisingly, many suckers swallow this bait. (I did.) But, why do these dupes include the US State Dept. and media establishment? The US government, 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.

potkettle.jpgThese 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."

First Comment from Marcos:

Excellent article.

The celebration of Cuba as a fashionable place with visits from Obama, the Pope and the Rolling Stones in a short period of time is too much of a coincidence to be by chance. It is proof that Cuba's usefulness as a boogeyman is over.

Cuba has been and still is the center of marxist revolution in Latin America, through the Forum of Sao Paulo organization. They have 60,000 agents in Venezuela only, and trained Maduro and many leftist politicians in the continent in terrorism, propaganda and ideology subjects. Marxism took over Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Bolivia, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Chile, Colombia to an extent and Paraguay for a short time (they fought back). Cuba trained and supported bloody terrorist organizations such as the FARC and Sendero Luminoso. 

It is laughable that naive Americans still blame the US for imperialism...America has had no say at all in the continent for the last 20 years. 

It doesn't matter that Cuba had arrested 250 people for political reasons one week before Obama's visit, or that it is a hellhole of misery and corruption. Cuba is hip. It has old cars and is great for a fashion photo shoot.  

Marxism's role is to destroy traditional values and individual freedoms. Now that the work has been done in Latin America, it is time to transcend over to a "benevolent" new world order semi-dictatorship, with capitalism for the elite and social marxism for the poor, much like China. Move over Castro, here comes a Cuban Trudeau.

Comments for " Castro Profited from Communist Scam"

Hans said (December 4, 2016):

Very interesting article which caught my interest while thinking about the incredible fact that Castro was allowed to stay in power for so many years right on the US' doorstep. I think one aspect that might be lacking is Cuba's role in the drug trade. The drug trade through Cuba of not least cocaine - from South America into the States via Miami - was booming at the time when Castro came to power. Under Batista, drug cartels were establishing control and casinos were shooting up in Havana (the tell-tale mark of drug money and accompanying money laundering). The American anti-narcotics agency was allegedly trying to fight this development (which sounds as real as the war on drugs) but were unable to "control" the situation. This could perhaps be yet a reason to rush Castro into power under the cover of a "revolution". Maintaining control of the drug traficking route through Cuba and thereby ensuring a high degree of stability could be another reason to keep Castro in power for a lifetime.

IN said (November 27, 2016):

Pope Francis was "sad" about Castro's passing and gave "sentiments of grief". Another NWO puppet. He is one to keep an eye on because some indications show that he is forming a world religion. Something the globalists have had planned for years.

And while Trump said the right things by bashing Castro; I am guessing will betray his supporters, by being another Alexis Tsipras (the PM of Greece), who did not stand up to the bankers as he had promised. His approval has fallen around 90% I think. There is some conspiracy speculation that Trump could have been chosen to bring Mexico, Canada, and the USA together in a supernation as almost completely envisioned by the Club of Rome. Hillary could not do it after all...but Trump is a better candidate for the job. Time will tell.

It might be a good to have a few articles on Alexis Tsipras on your website Mr. Makow sometime in the future as a follow-up to the ones published in the past. I believe for certain now that he is another globalist lackey because nothing has changed in Greece since he was voted in.

Salman said (March 3, 2009):

Hello Henry Makow
How are you? Americans can't expect to avoid destruction as long as they continue to embrace Communism in all its myriad disguises.
Now I can say that USA has turned into USSA = United Socialist States of America.
OR in other words USA has taken place of USSR former imperial power of Communism/Soviet which has been vanished by Mujahadeen and Obama himself is a communist and keen to repeat History as you know history does repeat itself and USSR got vanished by Muslims freedom fighters and now its USSA turns
All types of U's are fighting for G.O.D [Excluding Muslims who are fighting for Allah]

3. Drugs

Peter said (March 2, 2009):

The song as you can see is called "If You Seek Amy" and uses the cheap device/gimmick of its title to brainwash the young kids it's targeting with its toxic subliminal message (coincidentally Britney Spears had an album named "Toxic").

The lyrics of the chorus go:

Love me hate me
But can't you see what I see
But all of the boys and all of the girls are
begging to If You Seek Amy you can see she's saying "all the boys and all the girls are begging to IF(F) YOU(U) SEE(C) K(K) AMY(ME)

so she's singing "all the boys and all the girls are begging to F-U-C-K ME" (under the guise of "If you seek amy)"

Pure subliminal brainwashing TRASH and more homosexual propaganda as well in the spirit of all the recent big pop music hits like Katy Perry's "I kissed a girl - I liked it.." etc..

You are one of the last beacons of truth and light in this depraved and increasingly sickening world, please do not stop exposing these disgusting elite controllers and their master plans! I hope you include this utterly blatant subliminal brainwashing in one of your next articles, this has to be exposed!! They veil it on purpose so that the song can get radio play (since the overt use of curse word like "fuck" would prohibit it from getting on the radio stations) so that they can reach more and more young minds. One of the youtube comments even had a bubbly giggling young girl saying something along the lines of "wow my school loves this song! Xo" etc..

James said (March 2, 2009):

Henry, Great your latest about Che and the commies. Communism is Feudalism, with a modern twist. Feudalism wouldn't have been accepted cause of History's bad slant on it...however Communism can seem appealing to those that are"downtrodden" or are tired of what isn't working politically. Keep the truth flowing man. Maybe the great "solar storm" predicted for 2012 will be the catalyst for them coming out of their bunkers and making a "Brave New World" for the Rothschild's??

Bert said (March 1, 2009):

a small FYI, re Ché

According to the Pentagon's own internal history of Castro (see links below), prepared for U.S. Army by CIA for advanced political training (indoctrination) of Pentagon Special Ops insurgency forces (which since their inception have always been agents of cold-war terrorism, implementing Trotsky's post-1921 plan for global communism through state-sponsored terrorism, cold-war terrorism occurring world-wide wherever the Pentagon went, post 1947):

Castro and his rag tag bunch of revolutionaries got their insurgency training in Mexico -- while guests of the owner of a farm/plantation in the environ of Mexico City, which comprised 60 square MILES of land area, and which had guard towers at its property corners and walls along its boundaries. Someone who is familiar with the Mexico City area will probably know exactly who Castro's host was -- my hunch is that it belonged(?) to United Fruit Company, owned by the Dulles brothers, Allen and John Foster.

Also note that just before Castro (the 1950s bearded invincible one, created as a Pentagon personalismos, much like Osama of today, now a bearded uncatchable one) ousted Batista (with the help of Major Henry Morgan, U.S. Army Special Forces, whose Russian wife now receives his full pension benefits, thanks to W.), Batista was organizing to create a sovereign bank -- the Development Bank of Cuba would create its own credit and currency, in the fashion of Hamilton and Lincoln and Kennedy, to finance internal development of Cuba, with special emphasis on local agriculture, mining and industry. Castro (financed by Eugene Meyer, David Rockefeller, et al, by sale of Cuban Revolutionary War Bonds, which were printed up in Mexico City, while E. Howard Hunt was station chief there, while Clay Shaw and Brian Ferry were running their New Orleans-to-Mexico City Import-Export company) shelved Batista's law for creation of a sovereign Bank for Cuba, and instead made the Cuban people agriculturally dependent on the global financial system, trading sugar cane produced on "state owned" farm plantations, for food stuffs that Cubans could better have grown on their own family farms, with domestic financing.

The Castro-Batista fight also gets into the split between the 3rd International and 4th International. Castro was Trotskyite 4th International, whereby global one-world government is implemented by state-sponsored terrorism. Batista, was more of a Hoover-Lenin communist. Jane Degras' books on the records and publications of the Third International, list Batista as the official delegate of the Communist Party of Cuba to the Third International's meetings in Russia.

links here ... sorry that is now a pain in the butt, when it started out it was pretty user friendly.

the books can also be found on, searching on Special Operations Research Office, Insurgency and Revolutionary Warfare, Case Studies.

Regards and keep up good work.

"Free" trade, and "free" love, and not unrelated. There is little freedom to be found in either, because both attempt to bury the question of freedom to reproduce, either economically, or bio-cognitively as the case may be.

"The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender." - Proverbs 22:7

Ever wonder just how it is that the supposedly "smartest people on earth", the international banksters, could possibly have gotten it so terribly, terribly wrong?

Ever wonder why Barack Hussein Obama has but one basic facial expression, a kind of smug, condescending arrogance, no matter the particular "photo op" in which he is involved?

One could almost accept such a pose, if he had any prior experience in handling anything remotely comparable to the current world financial meltdown, but he does not. Any sane person in such a position should be terrified at the impossibility of the task set before him, even as the Chairman of the Federal Reserve often appears to be.

One could almost accept such a pose from such a grossly unqualified "President", if the "advisers" and "deputies" he appointed to run "his" government had any such comparable experience, but they do not. But they are almost equally, smug, arrogant and condescending, apparently equally unaware of the impossibility of saving this nation and the world from its obvious fate.

One could almost accept such a pose from such a grossly-unqualified "President" AND from his equally grossly-unqualified assistants, if they had somehow, despite their individual and corporate cluelessness had somehow managed to put forth an economic and fiscal plan that actually had any prospect of stemming the hemorrhaging life's blood of this nation and the world, but they have not.

Having exhausted all of the obvious reasons which might justify such an attitude on the part of the "President" and his "staff" and found them utterly inadequate to explain their behavior, we make bold to suggest the real reason for it: Obama & Company are smug because their real plan is right on track!

Obama's task, as set before him by his Illuminatist handlers is simply this: to serve as a figurehead, overseeing the self-destruction of the world's existing financial systems, so that they, the hidden holders of the world's true wealth (precious metals, land, oil, etc.), can acquire the defaulted assets (homes, businesses, assets of nations) for a tiny percentage of their original values, and finally come to rule the world they have so long coveted.

Do not be deceived any further. Do not confuse the employees and shareholders of the banking institutions which are on the point of ruin, with the real international banksters who rule the world. Their names appear on no corporate letterheads that you or I ever heard of, they sit on no charitable boards of trustees, they hold no elective public offices. But they absolutely control those who do.

Obama's characteristic smugness therefore derives from a – for him – delicious irony: that a Kenyan Negro who is not even a citizen of the United States of America could actually deceive a majority of its voters, be elected its "President", AND be charged with overseeing the enslavement of the entire (largely white) world.

For a Barack Hussein Obama, it just doesn't get any better than that.

Jean said (March 1, 2009):

Thanks for good article. I have a nephew who is a "progressive activist" in the local Democratic party. He has a huge poster of Che in his office, thankfully he works for and offices with his father who apparently also thinks it is cute to have that poster.

He was the lowest of the low and as I understand it he was a street protester, agitator, provacateur, and delinqunet in South America in the employ of the communists (bankers, Illuminati) even as a very young teenager.

I read Jack Cashill's Hookwinked in which he described how brutal filth Che and his band of rebels in the swamps and camps of Cuba saw that a young boy about 9 years old in the camp had taken an extra piece of bread and Che just shot and killed him. Che's son was named Vladimir.

I would think that all these young "progressives" now seeing what an elitist liar and puppet Barak Obama is would begin to wake up to the bankruptcy of their lefty delusions, but I guess their I V Kool Aid is still attached and flowing strong.

Lynda said (February 28, 2009):

All very true. Your essay thought provokes me to start digging into the history of these Latin American Revolutions. Trotsky was in Mexico. My hypothesis is that all these Revolutionaries trained at the school for the "Great" Revolution inaugurated in France 1879. This was the Grand Orient Lodge founded by the Rothschild Tribunal about 5 years before the French Revolution. Lenin trained there and so did Garibaldi. I'll just bet you anything that Bro Fidel and Bro Che are among the illustrious alumni.

The skull and cross bones was the emblem of the Knights Templar before it became the insignia of Skull and Bones. The symbol of the Revolution is the X of the crossed blades which become the shears cutting the social fabric according to the Political agenda.

Dave said (February 28, 2009):

My first interest in Che Guevara was in the idea that he was the villain of America. When you look at what American has done to itself and most other countries it is hard to not look for something to symbolize the opposite. I bought a Che book a few years ago to understand what he was about but lost interest very quickly. I would say that the young rebels you speak of also are looking for a counter-hero. There is no one to look up to and there is no one to lead a counter movement. I have no opinion on Che as I never did finish the book but your article has tainted my view of this counter-hero. There will be no revolution without a figurehead leading the masses. Without a revolution we are all doomed.

Since the time of Aristotle there has essentially been the same political systems. Communism is relatively new if Marx did create the philosophy. I am still bitter over propaganda on political systems. One day long ago I woke up and realized that Communism wasn't a literal evil physical creature but a flawed concept. An idea. Why is it that over all this time so few systems have been created? I prefer the blank page approach when dealing with problems. Identify our problem and figure out how are we going to deal with it. I no longer subscribe to any established ideas. It seems weak minded to only rely on what has already been tried and failed.

Tim said (February 28, 2009):

Self-defined 'communists' may have this drive, but the political ideology behind the word (whilst flawed) does not include 'world domination' via imposition - but does imagine that reasonable people will end up with communism as their ideology of choice. This assumption, coupled with nefarious ideas like 'false consciousness' and vanguardism, tends to create an institutional dynamic that seeks domination anyway.

However, capitalism similarly has it's own implicit dynamics, which achieve similar ends. I'd reword the quote thus:

"[Capitalists] always present their demented drive for world domination in terms of self-interested, and, by conning the common people into a foolish belief that they too can take their share, reputedly ultimately serves the common people. VERY surprisingly, plenty of suckers are ready to swallow this bait. But, why do these dupes include the US corporate media establishment?"

"Whoever you vote for the government wins", but as puppets of unaccountable corporate control freaks. Not for nothing was the Soviet interpreted by many as 'state capitalism'.

I worked out long ago that if either 'communism' as defined by the quote or capitalism win out, then we are all doomed. Let's fight hierarchy, dominance and capital - we might salvage something. Che is an easy 'opposite' extreme to what we have (that is failing), but we need to deny both extremes, and break the cycle. A real commune-ist / anarchist society on the European model imagines hierarchy and dominant elites would fail in competition with genuinely empowered and informed individuals (perhaps optimistically).

Steve said (February 28, 2009):

I been reading about the plans [on many websites] for the NWO, Freemasons, Jewish / British elite, central bankers, Cecil Rhodes, even such a thing as the Cecil family [different from Cecil Rhodes as being the actual secret chief top illuminati family], but for some reason after reading your article on "Che! The West's Fatal Embrace of Communism" I actually felt fear, because the realisation came over me just how vastly developed and matured is the control of these occult Elite. It is scary!

The only thing I can say is, "come Lord Jesus!"

Henry, the New Covenant says, "Luke 21:34-36 (New International Version) 34"Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like a trap. 35For it will come upon all those who live on the face of the whole earth. 36Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man". Although many will lose their lives God will hear the prayers of his "beloved" and will protect many as well. It could simply mean protection from the so called tribulation 3.5 years of Revelation, after the beast power/NWO head calls himself God. I speak this to myself and ask that you consider speaking it yourself. Our Messiah did come Henry, all we have to do is accept Him / Jesus and not one being can harm us unless God allows it. There is a verse in Revelation that indicates Christians will not be greatly hammered by this NWO till after this beast anti-Christ says he is God in the newly built temple in Jerusalem.

Peter said (February 28, 2009):

Quote: 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.

This is very a very true and deep insight that virtually never comes up or is discussed anywhere. It's also the reason why people aware of it can and should be permanently angry with that filthy bankster racketeering cabal at the root of all this evil. A late friend of mine was 100% correct when he said that EVERYTHING is their fault. All wars, the state of the world today, our cultural deprivation, and last but not least our current economic debacle. If that doesn't justify hanging all of them and their cronies, down to the last one, I don't know what does.

Tom said (February 28, 2009):

It would be wonderful if you weren't so on target. Obama is clearly what you say, a man clued into the needed "change." And it ain't anything one would want for oneself and family. Watching "our" incredible bankers pull off their heist is something. And to whom does one complain? Nobody's listening. Obama has a huge PR machine going; the one thing it isn't going to do is listen to "the people." Now I suppose we get 8 years of O. Ho hum. It's like watching paint dry.

Richard said (February 28, 2009):

It is becoming quite obvious. The Bankers and the United States government are attempting to pick a fight with those who are not going to go along with the destruction of the US Constitution, and the creation of an obviously communist America. They become more and more bold every day. Our congressman and senators don't care what most of the voters think at all. They have their retirement in the bag. Its only a matter of time before a certain cross section of Americans snap! This stimulus plan, and the last one under Bush show how much our opinions, and our votes, do not matter to them. They will draw out the troublemakers and annihilate them. As a veteran, I have seen the weapons they have, there is no hiding from them anymore. Ask any Iraqi that gets splattered all over the pavement by a chain gun on an apache helicopter from 2 miles away. We are toast. all our troops are out of country, and out of touch with what is happening to our country.
