Meanwhile In Download City… OOT

My thanks to Alberta Oil Peon for his suggestion!

Never mind which level of Hell they’re on…
“You gotta be kidding me!” Saddam exclaimed under his breath as he rushed to the central command hub of the base ship. After the last debacle which transformed him, Barney Frank, Fred Phelps, and John Cavil into pillars of salt, the former Iraqi dictator was very loathe to step foot onto the abomination which it had become.
But, a request from his boss (not necessarily The Devil) was not simply a request, and so he went straightaway.
Fifteen minutes later (considered immediate in the Infernal Realm), Saddam arrived, and he found Cavil in the darkened control tub location. “OK Cavil! Who have you conjured up this time?”
The Number One Cylon laughed. “I assure you no conjuration was necessary. She just arrived today.” He plugged the cable in and the tank lit up the entire room.
“Son of a bitch! HELEN THOMAS!” He silently thanked both his bosses that he didn’t have to throw his shoe like he wanted to do with Nancy Pelosi back in the day. “Man, you sure work fast!”
“You’re welcome,” replied Cavil. “By the way, the Boss will still have her fulfill her Punishment Battalion duties when needed. At least we now have fresh DNA instead of a transmitted sequence the last two times I tried this.”
“Awaiting instructions,” said the Hybrid. The ship throbbed.
“So,” Cavil inquired. “Who would you like to invite to this unveiling?”
Saddam had to think for a moment. “I have two people in mind, both of whom were her peers when she began her career at the White House. May I go and fetch them?”

“Certainly,” smiled the Toaster.

Thirty minutes later (not considered immediate), the Iraqi returned with Ted Kennedy and Fidel Castro! The Senator thoughtfully brought along his best bottle of scotch when Saddam asked him to attend. The Cuban dictator dutifully carried a box of cigars and a lighter.
Cavil retrieved some shot glasses from a nearby cupboard in his office, poured out the scotch (sans ice of course), and passed them around.
WHOOOOAAAAHHHH!” Kennedy happily muttered. “I’m not even gonna ask.”
“Good thing too, Comrade Ted,” Castro replied. “If there’s one…ahem!…good thing I can say about The Opposing One, He knows who to send our way.”
“Indeed.” Cavil was even enjoying the cigar, the scotch, and the company, a rarity for him.
After another fifteen minutes, everyone was satisfied. “Let us begin,” said The Number One Cylon. “Hybrid…status, please.”
“A teacher praised my work, and I liked the bylines..all systems nominal, FTL online, weapons systems online…When you’re having fun, why stop having fun…end of line.”
Saddam shook his head. “Don’t look at me. I know better!”
“Comrade Fidel?” Cavil shook his head. “I suppose I owe you one after the unceremonious matter in which you arrived here.”
“Thank you.” Castro placed his hands into the nearby data stream water console, and simply said, “I miss Havana.”
Ted Kennedy gasped. “Holy Crap! We can’t go there! That’s outside the Infernal Realm!”
Cavil stroked his chin. “An interesting choice, actually. Hmmm….”
The Hybrid complied. “We won’t really know what will happen until it happens…JUMP! The Hybrid arched its back in ecstatic transition. One moment the base ship serenely floated above the ancient fortress…
…the next, it appeared over the exact same coordinates. Except inside the ship, the atmospheric pressure was rapidly dropping! Cavil, Saddam, Kennedy, and Castro began to turn blue as they reached for the next breath which would never come; not even the Number One Cylon had a chance to utter his last words as the Hybrid issued its status since it was unharmed.
“I’m a liberal, I was born a liberal, and I will be a liberal till the day I die…internal life support offline, FTL offline, weapons systems offline…Oh my God, they’re going to fire me…end of line.”
In a corner of the control tank area, two figures observed the Centurions enter to retrieve the corpses; since the Bulletheads did not rely on oxygen, it was simply business as usual for them.
“Will they ever learn?” said the male.
The female shook her head. “I highly doubt it.” Then they vanished.

Fidel Castro had a stroke

Normally it’s not nice to cheer someone having a medical problem., but there are exceptions. Fidel Castro reportedly has had a stroke. This is good news since he’s one of the most evil men of the last century. He betrayed his class and destroyed his nation.

Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and his state of health is so precarious that he has trouble feeding, speaking and recognizing people, said a Venezuelan physician who assured El Nuevo Herald that he has access to firsthand sources and information.
“He suffered an embolic stroke and recognizes absolutely no one,” said José Marquina, a respected doctor who in the past has claimed to have direct information about the illness affecting President Hugo Chávez of Venezuela.
“The people with a condition of this nature have difficulty eating and, of course, they end up with total deficit in their neurologic capacities.”

I hope Castro dies and burns in hell.

Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen has once again open his mouth and gotten in trouble. He recently said that he admired Fidel Castro. This is a huge no no in the Miami area 2whichs is home to large Cuba community. Responding to the fire storm Ozzie Guillen did a press conference apologizing for his remarks. He was suspended by Marlin ownership for 5 games as well.

MIAMI -Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen has been suspended for five games amid controversy over a comment he made about Fidel Castro.

The Marlins released a statement Tuesday morning, saying, “The Marlins acknowledge the seriousness of the comments attributed to Guillen. The pain and suffering caused by Fidel Castro cannot be minimized, especially in a community filled with victims of the dictatorship.”

[....]

“I apologize to the people here, outside, and I’m very, very, very sorry about the problem, about what happened. I will do everything to make it better, everything in my power to make it better,” Guillen said.

Ozzie will put his foot in his mouth again.

 

Castro knew of Oswald’s JFK plot

A new book by ex CIA officer Brian Latell claims that Fidel Castro knew about Lee Harvey Oswald’s assassination plot. Latell got this information from Cuban intelligence defectors.

Fidel Castro knew of plans to kill President John Kennedy, according to a book due out next month by a retired CIA analyst, the Miami Herald reported.

The book, “Castro’s Secrets: The CIA and Cuba’s Intelligence Machine” by Brian Latell, is based on interviews with Cuban spies who defected and on declassified documents from a variety of U.S. agencies, including the CIA, the FBI and the Pentagon.

Latell writes that assassin Lee Harvey Oswald told Cuban intelligence officers he planned to kill Kennedy. “Fidel knew of Oswald’s intentions — and did nothing to deter the act,” the author writes.

This is very plausible.

Another Flying Pig Moment!

Look! Up In The Sky!

HAVANA – Fidel Castro told a visiting American journalist that Cuba’s communist economic model doesn’t work, a rare comment on domestic affairs from a man who has conspicuously steered clear of local issues since stepping down four years ago.
The fact that things are not working efficiently on this cash-strapped Caribbean island is hardly news. Fidel’s brother Raul, the country’s president, has said the same thing repeatedly. But the blunt assessment by the father of Cuba’s 1959 revolution is sure to raise eyebrows.
Jeffrey Goldberg, a national correspondent for The Atlantic magazine, asked if Cuba’s economic system was still worth exporting to other countries, and Castro replied: The Cuban model doesn’t even work for us anymore*,” Goldberg wrote Wednesday in a post on his Atlantic blog.
He said Castro made the comment casually over lunch following a long talk about the Middle East, and did not elaborate. The Cuban government had no immediate comment on Goldberg’s account.
[* – Emphasis added by Editor]

Shocked, I tell you. SHOCKED!
What’s going on here? First, Comrade Fidel told Mr. Dinner Jacket to lay off the Jews, and now this. He must know something we don’t: 1) He’s about to die, 2) The SHTF is about to occur, or 3) His recent near-death experiences may have shown him a new light on things. Who knows.

Flying Pig moment:Fidel Castro condemns Ahmadinejad’s anti-Semitism

This has to be one of the biggest flying pig moments ever. Fidel Castro, who is admired and beloved as an icon by the Internationalist Progressives, has condemned one of their sacred cows. For that last few years the Ayatollah regime has been the pet darlings of the Left. Their threats of exterminating Israel has won nothing but praise from Progressives. Well Fidel Castro is one progressive who’s not a fan of the regime.

Castro’s message to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the President of Iran, was not so abstract, however. Over the course of this first, five-hour discussion, Castro repeatedly returned to his excoriation of anti-Semitism. He criticized Ahmadinejad for denying the Holocaust and explained why the Iranian government would better serve the cause of peace by acknowledging the “unique” history of anti-Semitism and trying to understand why Israelis fear for their existence.

He said the Iranian government should understand the consequences of theological anti-Semitism. “This went on for maybe two thousand years,” he said. “I don’t think anyone has been slandered more than the Jews. I would say much more than the Muslims. They have been slandered much more than the Muslims because they are blamed and slandered for everything. No one blames the Muslims for anything.” The Iranian government should understand that the Jews “were expelled from their land, persecuted and mistreated all over the world, as the ones who killed God. In my judgment here’s what happened to them: Reverse selection. What’s reverse selection? Over 2,000 years they were subjected to terrible persecution and then to the pogroms. One might have assumed that they would have disappeared; I think their culture and religion kept them together as a nation.” He continued: “The Jews have lived an existence that is much harder than ours. There is nothing that compares to the Holocaust.” I asked him if he would tell Ahmadinejad what he was telling me. “I am saying this so you can communicate it,” he answered.

Castro went on to analyze the conflict between Israel and Iran. He said he understood Iranian fears of Israeli-American aggression and he added that, in his view, American sanctions and Israeli threats will not dissuade the Iranian leadership from pursuing nuclear weapons. “This problem is not going to get resolved, because the Iranians are not going to back down in the face of threats. That’s my opinion,” he said. He then noted that, unlike Cuba, Iran is a “profoundly religious country,” and he said that religious leaders are less apt to compromise. He noted that even secular Cuba has resisted various American demands over the past 50 years.

[...]

I was surprised to hear Castro express such doubts about his own behavior in the missile crisis – and I was, I admit, also surprised to hear him express such sympathy for Jews, and for Israel’s right to exist (which he endorsed unequivocally).

Read the it all: Fidel to Ahmadinejad: ‘Stop Slandering the Jews’

Watch for the Left to turn on Castro. He has committed the cardinal sin of defending Israel’s right to exist and criticizing Iran. Don’t expect to see the Left to call for a lifting of the Embargo anytime soon. Fidel Castro is spot on here and we have to be intellectually honest and give him credit where it’s due.

Totalitarian Progressive Cuba Condemns Arizona Law

Talk about a pile on on the State of Arizona! Now the Totalitarian Progressive regime of The Castro brothers in Cuba are denouncing the Arizona law. The audacity of this vile regime to even denounce the laws of another nation are beyond the pale. The Castro regime has killed and imprisoned thousands. They have seized property and assets from Cubans to create their Socialist utopia. But since Barack Hussein Obama and American Progressives are attacking Arizona, their Cuban Ideological brothers decide to chime in.

HAVANA (AP) – Cuban lawmakers have passed a resolution denouncing Arizona’s new immigration law as “racist and xenophobic,” recalling an old dispute in the process: the argument that the United States’ purchase of Arizona from Mexico in the 19th century was tantamount to theft.

The Arizona law has caused controversy since it was signed by Gov. Jan Brewer on April 23. It requires police to question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect they are in the country illegally.

Several U.S. cities including Seattle, Los Angeles, San Diego and Austin, Texas, have passed resolutions against the law or urged outright boycotts, and President Barack Obama has denounced it as “a misdirected expression of frustration.”

But the denunciation of the law by Cuban lawmakers, who called it a “brutal violation of human rights,” is sure to raise anger among U.S. backers of the law.

So the Cuban Progressives are on the same side as Barack Hussein Obama and the American Progressives. This is very revealing about who supports our political opponents.

Castro Supports Obamacare

Fidel Castro has heaped praise on Barack Hussein Obama. He recognizes a fellow Totalitarian Progressive when he sees one. They are kindred spirits and there is no better example of this than health care. Both Castro and Obama believe the government should control who lives and dies. Castro has remodeled Cuba in his image and Mr. Hussein would love to do the same in America. Obama’s eugenics based health care reform and his takeover of various industries are just the beginning. Fidel Castro knows this and once again praises his fellow Leftist.

It perhaps was not the endorsement President Barack Obama and the Democrats in Congress were looking for.

Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro on Thursday declared passage of American health care reform “a miracle” and a major victory for Obama’s presidency, but couldn’t help chide the United States for taking so long to enact what communist Cuba achieved decades ago.

“We consider health reform to have been an important battle and a success of his (Obama’s) government,” Castro wrote in an essay published in state media, adding that it would strengthen the president’s hand against lobbyists and “mercenaries.”

Fidel Castro is an evil and vile leader. He has destroyed a once prosperous nation. Barack Obama is clearly following the same path as Castro. It is no coincidence there are links between the two Leftist leaders. As an admirer of 3rd World Tyrants, Castro is one of his idols.

The praises from Fidel Castro are like those of a proud Dad watching his son that made it. The difference is that his son will fail here in America and we will never go the way of Cuba!

Castro Loves Obama

The Progressive Tyrant of Cuba Fidel Castro is obsessed with Obama. He loves the man and this should be no surprise. Him and Obama have links and both subscribe to the 3rd World Liberation Ideology. It was Castro who developed the talking point that opposition to Obama is based on Racism. The American progressives then used the talking points of El Comandante to attack the Right. Charles “Icarus” Johnson of Little Green Footballs is the biggest promoter of Castro’s talking points. Barack Hussein Obama is Castro’s favorite American President ever and that should raise concerns.

Fidel

HAVANA – Think you’re obsessed with President Barack Obama and the many challenges he faces at home and abroad?

Well, you’re not alone.

Fidel Castro appears to have a fascination with the American leader that would make Obama Girl jealous, writing obsessively not only about his politics, but of his youth and vigor.

And unlike with past American heads-of-state — he slammed President George W. Bush as a genocidal drunk — Castro seems to genuinely like the fresh face in Washington.

Since handing over the Cuban presidency to his brother in February 2008, the 83-year-old has continued to publish his thoughts in essays called “Reflections of Comrade Fidel,” which are dutifully printed in state media and read repeatedly on government-controlled radio and television

Hardly a week goes by without a mention of his nemesis to the north, the most recent on Thursday. In an opinion piece that took up an entire newspaper page, Castro waxed philosophic about everything from Obama’s Asia trip to his prospects for re-election.

Last month, Castro pronounced it a good thing that the American president was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. In September, he termed Obama’s call-to-action on global warming courageous.

Read the rest.

Fidel Castro is like a proud dad watching his son that made it. Hugo Chavez said that they have to help Obama’s agenda. The Chinese refer to Obama as Oba-Mao, in tribute to their Progressive genocidal leader. IThe fact that these Progressive Tyrants all love Obama says much about his character.. The fact these Thugs support Obama tells us something, birds of a feather flock together and Progressives the world over are no different.

On an Important note, the Drinking thread will be Saturday!

Castro Praises Fellow Progressive Obama’s Noble Prize Win

Progressive Dictator of Cuba Fidel Castro has praised Obama in the past. He started the the talking  point that criticism of Obama is racism. Since then Progressive Media outlets and blogs have been using the racism charge. I also have documented the fact that Obama and Castro are connected. Therefore it is no surprise that Castro praises his fellow Progressive Barack Hussein Obama.

fidel-castro-4

HAVANA — Count Fidel Castro among those in favor of the Norwegian Nobel Committee’s controversial choice of U.S. President Barack Obama for the Nobel Peace prize.

The former Cuban leader said Saturday that he thought the choice was a “positive step,” though he added it was more a repudiation of Obama’s predecessors than a recognition of anything concrete Obama has done.

“Many believe that he still has not earned the right to receive such a distinction,” Castro wrote in a column published in state media. “But we would like to see, more than a prize for the U.S. president, a criticism of the genocidal policies that have been followed by more than a few presidents of that country.”

The Cuban revolutionary said he was often at odds with the choices of the Nobel committee, “but I must admit that in this case, in my opinion, it was a positive step.”


Read the rest.

Castro has the audacity of calling calling past American policies as genocidal! This man has committed murders and is a criminal thug. This man once bragged that he could be an effective terrorist. Therefore his praise of Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize should wake people how Progressives all over the world support each other.
