Castro government funded abortion doctor’s education in Cuba!

The doctor who compared abortion injections to a “flu shot” received her medical training in Cuba, fully funded by the regime of Fidel Castro, and returned to the U.S. planning to advocate for universal health care, according to an interview she gave in 2007.

Last week, the pro-life organization Live Action highlighted an exchange between Carmen Landau, of the Southwest Women’s Options abortion clinic in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and one of their 24-week pregnant undercover “investigators.”

“And it is not like you and I, where when we get a flu shot, we’re kind of ‘Ugh!’ not — that — that experience of anxiety and suffering is not — it’s not capable of,” she explained, based on Live Action’s recording. “And so that, I think, helps us all to feel more comfortable with this.”

Southwestern Women’s Options in Albuquerque performs elective abortions through 28 weeks, according to the clinic’s website.

According to a 2007 report in Reuters, which features pictures of Landau, she was one of eight Americans who graduated from a Cuban medical school that year, after six years of fully funded education from the Castro government.

“Cuba offered us full scholarships to study medicine here. In exchange, we commit ourselves to go back to our communities to provide health care to underserved people,” Landau told Reuters at the time.

The Reuters report noted that the graduation ceremony took place at the Karl Marx theater in Havana (the ailing Fidel Castro was not in attendance). Thanks to aid from the Castro government, students graduated debt-free.

Filmmaker Introduces World to “Oscar’s Cuba”
Miami film debuts on May 18 at Little Havana’s Tower Theater

By HANK TESTER

Jordan Allott did not know much about Cuba and the dissident movement on the island. He also realized that the rest of the world outside of South Florida knew little about the lack of democracy and the abuse of human rights Cubans endure daily.

Few if any had heard of Dr. Oscar Biscet

“I thought if there was not a documentary about him already there has got to be one made,” Allot said.

Allott’s documentary film, “Oscar’s Cuba,” debuts for for the general public May 18. The setting, Little Havana’s Tower Theater.

Dr. Oscar Biscet is described as “Cuba’s forgotten hero.” Allott had never heard of Biscet until a Catholic priest friend had alerted the film producer to the Cuban dissident movement. He quickly realized that the Biscet story was powerful.

Biscet was a young doctor with a promising career takes on the Fidel Castro government. He protested the rampant abortions encouraged by the regime. He was vocal about civil rights, human rights, the ability to speak freely, and to assemble.

None of this went down well for the doctor, who was praised by fellow dissidents, admired by Cuban Exiles,and honored by with U.S. Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Biscet is now serving a 25-year sentence for disorderly conduct and counter-revolutionary activities.

“I think the biggest point is to proclaim to the world that some one is put in jail just for thinking and for defending human rights,” said Dr. Ismael Roque-Velesco, who is a board member of The Lawton Foundation.

Biscet begin the Lawton Foundation as a platform for his human rights activities. Local Miami doctors like Roque-Velesco are members of the Havana-based group which still functions absent their leader.

But “Oscar’s Cuba” is not just for those born on the island or to Cuban parents.

“I really want to focus on getting out to non-Cubans,” Allott said.

And that is a tall order where in the U.S., Fidel Castro is regarded as a harmless cold war relic and Che Guevara is a universal symbol of youthful rebellion.

“I think it is a new time. I think there is opportunity for us to educate the non-Cuban population.”

Left winger progressive Oliver Stone’s anti-semitism

Oliver Stone: ‘Jewish-Dominated Media’ Prevents Hitler from Being Portrayed ‘in Context’

Director Oliver Stone belittled the Holocaust during a shocking interview with the Sunday Times today, claiming that America’s focus on the Jewish massacre was a product of the “Jewish domination of the media.”
The director also defended Hitler and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and railed against the “powerful lobby” of Jews in America.

Stone said that his upcoming Showtime documentary series “Secret History of America,” seeks to put Hitler and Communist dictator Joseph Stalin “in context.”

Hitler was a Frankenstein but there was also a Dr Frankenstein. German industrialists, the Americans and the British. He had a lot of support,” Stone told reporter Camilla Long during the interview, which can be found behind the paywall on the Sunday Times’ website.

Stone said that, “Hitler did far more damage to the Russians than the Jewish people, 25 or 30 [million killed].

The Sunday Times interviewer then asked why there was such a focus on the Holocaust.

The Jewish domination of the media,” responded Stone. “There’s a major lobby in the United States. They are hard workers. They stay on top of every comment, the most powerful lobby in Washington. Israel has f***** up United States foreign policy for years.”

The director, who recently met with Iranian President Ahmadinejad, also slammed the U.S. policy toward Iran as “horrible.”

Iran isn’t necessarily the good guy,” said Stone. “[B]ut we don’t know the full story!”

The Scarface screenwriter had even more encouraging words for socialist Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez, who Stone called “a brave, blunt, earthy” man. The director has recently been promoting his Chavez-praising documentary called “South of the Border.”

When the interviewer pointed out that Chavez has had a less-than-stellar record on human rights, Stone immediately dismissed the criticism.

The internet’s fully free [in Venezuela],” said Stone. “You can say what the hell you like. Compare it with all the other countries: Mexico, Guatemala, above all Colombia, which is a joke.”

While Stone has not been as blunt about his views on Jews and the Holocaust in the past, he has been outspoken in his fondness for Chavez and his disagreements with the U.S.’s policy on Iran.

On ABC’s Good Morning America on July 28, the director told anchor George Stephanopoulos that he “absolutely” believes Chavez is a good person, and claimed that there was “there’s no pattern of censorship in this country [Venezuela].”

Stone also said that if the U.S. pursued sanctions against Iran, “it’s going to be like North Vietnam again.”
