Fidel Castro, Passing of a Hero

Millions of right-wingers and useful idiots around the world are celebrating the death of one of modern history’s most remarkable leaders, Fidel Castro. Why?

Castro had the nerve to stand up to the United States and the intelligence to survive an invasion and repeated assassination attempts by the CIA.

Of course, most people will tell you they hate Castro because he was a dictator and a communist. But one doesn’t have to be a dictator or a communist to incur the wrath of the Evil Empire. Anyone who doesn’t do Team USA’s bidding is a marked man.

Castro’s critics don’t like to see the big picture. First, it would force them to admit that, even if Castro was as bad as they thought, he was still better than the despot he deposed, Fulgencio Batista.

Evaluating Castro’s economic policies is a little harder.

Though I’m a big fan of socialism, in the broad sense of the term, I’m not crazy about hard core communism. But there are two important things to consider.

1. Economics 101

First, Cubans fared better under communism than many Latin Americans did under capitalism. Cuban children weren’t forced to scavenge for food in garbage dumps, and there are more more homeless people in capitalist Seattle than in all of Cuba.

More than survive, Cuba’s literacy rate blows the U.S. out of the water. I’m not talking about official literacy rates. Visit Seattle and survey its mindless citizens, including both the homeless and a growing army of yuppies. While Seattle’s most famous export is crappy software, Cuba exported doctors.

As Castro famously said, “They talk about the failure of socialism but where is the success of capitalism in Africa, Asia and Latin America?”

Second, you can’t even begin to understand Cuba’s economic situation without mentioning the U.S. embargo that was widely condemned around the world. The U.S. has used similar economic measures to punish many countries it doesn’t like, including Iran, Russia and Libya.

2. Survival 101

Castro’s authoritarianism can similarly be seen as a necessary evil, or maybe even a good thing, depending on your perspective.

How can a ruler not be authoritarian when the CIA is trying to KILL him? And how could Castro have relaxed the rules when the U.S. has never ceased its efforts to brainwash and infiltrate Cuban society?

In recent years, the U.S. has destroyed Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and Libya, torpedoed Argentina’s economy, supported a coup in Honduras and destabilized Venezuela, which appears to be close to the abyss. None of those things happened to Cuba while Castro was alive.

Of course, the U.S. is evolving into a more authoritarian state. How could Cuba ever compete with the propaganda cranked out by an army of U.S. media whores? How could Cuba compete with America’s vast spy apparatus, with spy satellites, vast data banks and Jewish-owned Google?


Speaking of Jews, did you know that, before the Revolution, the Cuban Mafia was run by a Jew?

His name was Meyer Lansky, a U.S. citizen who was born in Russia and died in Miami. Lansky was a member of the Jewish Mob, an organization you’ve probably never even heard of. After all, we aren’t supposed to say bad things about Jews.

Many conspiracy theorists have speculated that the United States’ failure to put Cuba on a leash may have motivated President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. Other conspiracy theorists have increasingly looked at Israel as the guiding hand behind the assassination. When you combine Cuba with the Jewish Mob, things get more interesting.

Cuba is said to be one of just three countries whose economies aren’t sabotaged by a central “Rothschild bank.” The others are Iran and North Korea. The list included Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan and Libya, but their banking systems were allegedly changed after the 9/11 terrorist attacks (a false flag attack).

For me, Rothschild banks are a shadowy thing that may or may not be real. However, the Rothschilds are certainly real, and they are certainly extremely powerful. I have confirmed some of the many conspiracy theories swirling around them. 9/11 certainly happened, and it was obviously an example of a false flag attack.

To cut to the chase, one has to wonder to what extent the United States’ anti-Cuban policy has been driven by Jewarchists (corrupt Jews). Having failed to invade Cuba or bomb the country into submission, the U.S. finally changed strategies, sending Obama on a phony peace overture. The irony is that Obama was talking peace even while continuing to torture political prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

That reminds me of a beautiful song inspired by a poem written by one of Cuba’s most famous political figures, Jose Marti, “Guantanamera.”

Whether Rothschild banks are real or not, there’s no question that economics are a driving force behind the New World Order, which is very real. Think about the Federal Reserve, World Bank and International Monetary Fund, all controlled by Jews.

Castro was arguably the last of the great leaders who refused to bow to the New World Order. The others included Venezuelan firebrand Hugo Chavez and Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi, perhaps the greatest leader in Africa’s history. Of course, we can’t forget Castro’s comrade in arms, the legendary Che Guevara. There are additional Latin American revolutionaries, some of whom are still living, including Bolivia’s Evo Morales and Argentina’s Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner.

But Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner is no longer in office, having been replaced by a right-winger. Peruvians are already revolting against their recently elected president, a Jewish banker (literally). With Venezuela on the ropes and Cuba’s fate uncertain, Evo Morales must feel awfully alone.

The New World Order will apparently be ruled by Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin and Benjamin Netanyahu, aided by Henry Kissinger and the Vichy Democrats.

Hasta Siempre, Comandante

I’ve never regarded Fidel Castro as perfect. Come to think of it, none of my heroes are perfect.

However, I have more respect for Castro than any U.S. president, including even John F. Kennedy, whose administration worked so hard to defeat the Cuban Revolution.

I thank Fidel – how many other world leaders are commonly hailed by their first names? – for inspiring millions of people around the world while protecting the Cuban people from the ravages of Yankee Imperialism, the Jewish Mob or whatever you want to call it.

As the world continues to go to Hell, Castro’s legend will continue to grow, along with El Che, Gaddafi and other great revolutionary thinkers and fighters. The irony is that Obama, Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin and other crime bosses can never achieve what Castro and his colleagues did. Obama is a buffoon, not a cult figure, and what sane person would praise Donald Trump?

Of course, history is written by the victor, and the game isn’t over yet. There are still opportunities for new revolutionaries to fan the flames of revolution – and it’s hard to imagine anything less than revolution saving the United States.

Love him or hate him, you couldn’t beat Fidel Castro. It will be great fun watching his enemies gnash their teeth as they spend the rest of eternity trying to demonize a man who was a truer, more inspirational hero than slave-owner George Washington and Hypocrite in Chief Abraham Lincoln.

Viva the revolution!

P.S. Rather than simply read my post and nod your head in agreement, why not get involved? Think about Iris Chang’s words as you check out my Jewarchy campaign. And if you don’t understand some of the things I’ve discussed in this post, please explore Politix 101.

“Please believe in THE POWER OF ONE. One person can make an enormous difference in the world. One person — actually, one idea — can start a war, or end one, or subvert an entire power structure. One discovery can cure a disease or spawn new technology to benefit or annihilate the human race. You as ONE individual can change millions of lives. Think big. Do not limit your vision and do not ever compromise your dreams or ideals.” — Iris Chang

Bill Gates: Global Chicken

You have to wonder about the Bill Gates fan club. Deep down inside, they have to know he’s a kook.

Chicken Gates
Bill Gates: Still crazy after all these years

On the other hand, one could argue that Gates is crazy like a fox; he may be an idiot savant, with an almost supernatural talent for making money off of crap. Then again, Bill Gates might be a poor chicken farmer if it weren’t for his father, a very powerful and corrupt corporate attorney who taught Billy every dirty trick he knows. And where would father and son be without the government and media that give them a free ride?

In the end, the yolk’s on us.

Bill Gates once wrapped an Xbox in mother of pearl and gave it to South Korea’s president as a “symbol of peace.” While notable naturalists visit with gorillas and wrestle with anacondas, Bill Gates plays with mosquitoes. He even allegedly drank toilet water, if you can believe the media he lavishes money on.

Now, the Boy Nerd turned Software Führer turned Global Philanthropist is peddling chickens as a solution to both global hunger and poverty. If you don’t have enough to eat, all you have to do is get some chickens and turn’em loose in your back yard. And what you don’t eat, you can sell. According to Gates’ calculations, a West African family ought to be able to earn about $1,000 a year from chicken farming, a lucrative hobby in West Africa.

Putting his money where his mouth is, Gates is prepared to donate a whopping 100,000 chickens to poor countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Dubbed "Coop Dreams," Gates’ initiative involves a partnership with Heifer International, a non-profit charity that selfishly gives away livestock and agricultural training.

If it all seems to good to be true, that’s because it is.

Which came first?

First of all, Bill Gates didn’t invent the chicken, any more than he invented the personal computer. (Some people in the industry claim he never even invented Windows, but that’s another story.) If chickens were really the answer to ending world hunger and poverty, don’t you think the hundreds of millions of people living in poverty around the world would have discovered that long ago?

To put it in perspective, it would be interesting to make a list of countries that have no chickens. Forget Iceland; it has produced a unique breed known as the Icelandic chicken. There aren’t many starving people in Iceland, anyway.

Though I haven’t researched it, I’d almost bet money there are no chickens in Greenland. That’s precisely where Gates should give his chicken venture a trial run.

According to Wikipedia, most of the world’s chicken breeds are associated with countries in Eurasia or the U.S. Most African breeds originated in Egypt, with a couple associated with South Africa.

But a country doesn’t need its own domestic chicken breed to have chickens. The countries scattered between Egypt and South Africa can get chickens from Egypt and South Africa. If they have access to the sea or to an invention called the airplane, they can also get chickens from the U.S., China or Poland.

In fact, the video that accompanies Bill Gates’ PhD thesis, Why I Would Raise Chickens, appears to feature as many chickens as people. It’s filmed in Burkina Faso, an African country that is obviously well acquainted with chickens.

In related news, people in some African countries raise domestic guineafowl, a species related to the domestic chicken.

Flawed Math

Gates’ suggestion that West African chicken farmers can earn $1,000 a year doesn’t hold up to scrutiny, either. Imagine a village of a thousand hungry people. If each villager starts raising chickens, they can’t sell them to each other. Nor can they sell’em to the village next door if everyone in that village is selling chickens, too.

Then there’s Bill Gates’ gift of 100,000 chickens.

Seriously? The hungry people in just one big city could probably devour that many chickens.

If I were in their shoes, what’s what I would do — I would raise chickens.

Bill Gates

Follow the Money

A woman in Bill Gates’ video says, “If my child here is sick I can sell a chicken and buy the medicines to treat him.”

Is that why Bill Gates wants to flood the world with chickens, so that people can trade in a chicken for one of Bill Gates’ trial vaccines?

Heifer International’s website is an eye opener. It’s reminiscent of all those Christian charity groups that invite you to adopt a poor child in some third world country, pledging a certain amount of money per month.

Heifer International advertises a variety of domestic animal breeds, each with its own price tag. The most expensive is the water buffalo, which costs a whopping $250.

Of course, that wouldn’t even cover shipping if you had a water buffalo autographed by Bill Gates sent from Seattle to the Philippines. (Just make sure Gates doesn’t cover your gift buffalo with mother of pearl, like he did with that Xbox he gave to South Korea’s president.) But it’s a good bet Heifer International doesn’t get its water buffalo in Seattle.

$250 buys a lot of water buffalo in a number of Asian countries. There are even feral water buffalo in Australia, where the breed was introduced.

So you send Heifer International $250, and they pick up an aging, sterile water buffalo for $15 and give it to some poor villager in a poor Asian country. That leaves them a profit of $235, which they can split with Bill Gates, the patron saint of ripoffs.

Of course, the folks at Heifer International may assure you that the water buffalo you buy out of the kindness of your heart is a healthy, breeding-age individual that is going to a particular person in a particular village. And a lot of people are stupid enough to believe them.


We can’t ignore Bill Gates’ obsession with genetically modified food and biotech, even if the media ignore it. Is he pimping a genetically modified chicken, or is one waiting in the wings? Does Gates plan on raking in more money through some sort of chicken vaccine? Or does he plan on selling a cure for some chicken-borne disease that is built into his chickens’ genes?

Remember, Gates recently predicted that 33 million people are going to soon die from some mysterious, unnamed disease in the near future. There are also claims that Gates owns a patent on an Ebola vaccine or cure.

It seems Bill Gates has a cure for whatever ails you, for the right price. And if you aren’t ailing, he can fix that, too.

Bill Gates vs The Experts

Blogger Robert X. Cringely asked a chicken farmer his opinion of Bill Gates’ chicken venture. (What does Bill Gates know about raising chickens?) The chicken farmer replied, “Bill Gates is an idiot.”

As a former teacher, I can similarly tell you that Gates has done nothing to help education. As a former wildlife biologist, I can tell you that Gates is an idiot regarding the environment. As a web designer, I can tell you that Bill Gates’ software is a pile of bird guano.

This story probably won’t have a happy ending, except in South America. Apparently, Bill Gates lumped Bolivia together with all those poor African countries that are begging for his help.

If Gates had done his homework, he would have known that Bolivia already produces nearly 200 million chickens annually. He also would have known that President Evo Morales is no dummy. (See Viva Evo!)
