Falsehood, deception and impunity are some of the key features of the transfer of power that has just taken place in Cuba. It is not a political event but another cog of the chain of crime to continue controlling Cuba as a State, subjecting its people and directing from therein, the most important network of Transnational Organized Crime that utilizes politics as a cover. Every step of the so called “transfer of power in Cuba” is further proof of the “serious crimes” that are committed by the “structured group” of organized crime holding political power there.
Falsehood is that which lacks truth, it is “a crime consisting of the alteration or simulation of the truth with relevant consequences, made in public documentation…”. To deceive is “to make someone believe that something that is false is truthful” it is “to create an illusion” in other words to produce an image that lacks real truth. Whenever those who commit crimes of deception, and simulations violating human rights and subject their nation’s people to commit further crime in the international environment, and still remain unpunished we are facing impunity.
Falsehood as an essential element of the Castroist regime in Cuba is proven by the so called “elections” for popular power, held in Cuba, on the 11thof March of 2018 which were presented as “parliamentary elections” with 8.7 million voters registered of which 7.4 million voted and by an astounding 94.42% of the ballots “elected” 605 representatives who, in-turn “elected” members of the State´s Council, the President, and Vice-President by an average of 99.83% of the votes.
It is blatant proof of the crimes of; falsehood, deliberate misrepresentation, and supplanting, because for there to be “elections” there must be “freedom to choose” and to “choose is to select or prefer someone” something that does not exist in a political system with a single party, with candidates who are subservient to the government, with on-going repression, political prisoners, without true political opposition, in a system of totalitarian control. There are no real elections in Cuba. What the regime orchestrates as elections is simply the sequel of its crimes, attempting to make everyone believe that in Cuba voters may “elect” when, in reality, as an oppressed nation –not a civic nation- under pressure and duress, is compelled to abide by the orders and mandates of those illegitimate holders of power.
All of this deliberate misrepresentation is done in order to commit another fraud consisting of “installing” under the title of “President” someone who is willing and able to partially fulfill those functions which due to questions of age and health the chieftain of the organization Raul Castro –who also forcibly inherited his position due to the illness and death of Fidel Castro- is no longer able to perform
Can there be a President in a State in which there are no “free and fair elections based on universal and secret suffrage as an expression of the people’s sovereignty?” Of course NOT. It is but another noteworthy effort of deception, attempting to present a “dictator” as “President”, and in the particular case of Miguel Diaz Canel’s selection, it would seem an effort of selecting a deteriorated dictator.
The soap box opera played out in Cuba could be a successful comedy if it would not have the gravest consequence of oppressing nearly 11.5 million Cubans, of manipulating the ballot box and sustaining through criminal practices the regimes of Venezuela, Bolivia, and Nicaragua (now identified as narco-States), of threatening the region with crime, terrorism, destabilization, and the sequestering of democratic governments. In the midst of a communications’ revolution, the Castroist system pretends to present this as a transition and election of a new President. A simple operation of tweaking its inner circle, in order to continue committing crime under the guise of politics and Government who they control.
Both; existing literature, along with information from open public sources, indicate that in the mafia when the Capo or Mafioso chieftain gets old, there is a meeting of the families who through their representatives “elect” the successor who the Capo had previously identified. The elder Capo, Mafioso Chieftain, retains power and the successor Capo operates under his instructions and protection. The function of the elder Capo is to wield real power because he controls the heads of the mafia’s familial clans and the objective of the election of a successor is to enable for a smooth generational transition to take place among the Mafiosi, but neither a change in the system, nor a change in the purpose of the criminal undertakings they handle. Is there a difference of how the mafia handles this and what we are now seeing in Cuba?
The world’s democracies know this. The hope now is for them to realize the danger that represents any transfer of power as the doing of Organized Crime.
