Marco Rubio on Cuba: Whose Side Are We On?

YT-SC-Rubio-with-Fox-Hosts

We rarely feature U.S. Senator Marco Rubio from Florida, he sometimes seems compromised and a RINO; but when it comes to the homeland his parents fled when it was infiltrated by the globalists' communist proxies fronted by Fidel Castro, he is as articulate and hard hitting as anyone out there - and he's a powerful U.S. Senator. That's a good thing for Cubans over there and over here.

He'll never go as far as we do to point out how the whole communist presence in our hemisphere - and the entire world - is bought and paid for by the international ponzi-scheming money-laundering banksters on Wall Street, in London and the Vatican; but one day, relatively soon, even U.S. Senators will speak openly about this as it is brought completely and finally to an end. Take THAT to the bank!

This is a FOX News alert on growing backlash after Black Lives Matter activists side with Cuba's communist regime, not the Cuban citizens in the streets that are demanding basic freedoms.

John Roberts 0:12
BLM support for the Cuban police state coming right as it amps up a campaign of police brutality, cracking down on protesters after days of demonstrations.

Sandra Smith 0:22
BLM explains its support by praising Cuba for helping black revolutionaries specifically naming FBI Most Wanted cop killer Joanne Chesimard, who has been living in Cuba since escaping prison in the US decades ago, John.

John Roberts 0:37
We are seeing the same finger pointing at our country right now for the United Nations, which looks to investigate the US and racism. The Biden White House saying it would welcome such a pro, leaving Republicans asking why our country is under the microscope without one word on the religious bigotry in China where a minority group, The Uighurs, is being locked up and tortured.

Sandra Smith 0:59
Republican Florida Senator Marco Rubio joins us now. Senator, welcome.

Marco Rubio 1:04
Thank you

Sandra Smith 1:04
First I want to get your reaction to Biden inviting the UN to examine the US's record on racism. Is this a good idea?

Marco Rubio 1:13
Well, no, it's stupid. But it actually why is he convening the United Nations Security Council to talk about the fact that this Sunday and throughout the week, a regime 90 miles from our shores has been killing people, because they went out demanding liberty? That's what they should be looking at. So if you're going to invite the UN to come in the US to tell us how racist we are, you should at least also ask them to look into the horrifying situation that's unfolding in Cuba borderline, you know, an epic catastrophe that's spiraling out of control. Where's that? Why aren't they focused on that? It's just every, honestly, you wake up every day, you read these things and it's like, this can't be real. It almost feels like it's something from The Onion or one of these satire websites. I don't even know how to describe it. I'm out of words

John Roberts 1:53
Senator Rubio, the Secretary of State described it this way. he said responsible nations must not shrink from scrutiny of their human rights record. Rather, they should acknowledge it with the intent to improve. Here's what the press secretary said when questioned by our Peter Doocy about it.

Jen Psaki 2:09
As the Secretary said in his statement, he believes responsible nations must not shrink from scrutiny of their human rights record. Rather, they should acknowledge it with the intent to improve it, and also push and lift up and shine a light on other countries that need to do better. And that is the role we're playing here from the United States.

John Roberts 2:28
So the basic premise here is that, you know, if you want to hit the moral high ground on human rights, you need to show transparency. But what nation on the planet has been more transparent than the United States when it comes to our history and what goes on here on a daily basis?

Marco Rubio 2:43
Yeah, I have a record second to none. and I'm proud to say it, on human rights in the United States Senate. Okay? We have got some great partners across the aisle on our side, but no one has done more on human rights from the Uyghur Bill we passed just yesterday, which is my bill, on nation after nation. You look at a human rights across... somewhere in the world and I've been among if not the loudest voice on it. Okay? So let me tell you, everybody, I assure you of this, there are like 199 other countries that we should worry about on human rights before we get to America. In America, we have transparency, okay. In America, we have a press that covers whatever they want. And sometimes they lie. Sometimes they cover, sometimes it's a half truth. But you do something wrong in America, it's all over the place. We have a system of courts, we have people go to jail here because they do things that are not right. And so I think that before you get to the human rights record of the US, if you're going to rank them in order of problematic there's like 199 other places we'd have to deal with first.

Sandra Smith 3:32
Wow, very powerful response to that. I also want to get your response to BLM Black Lives Matter weighing in on the chaos in Cuba, obviously a story story near and dear to your heart. Black Lives Matter condemns, this is their statement, the US Federal Government's inhumane treatment of Cubans and urges it to immediately lift the economic embargo. Senator, is it the US's fault for what is happening in Cuba and the lack of freedoms those people have? Because the last I saw they were waving the American flag chanting freedom.

Marco Rubio 4:05
Yeah, the first thing let me tell you that the only reason why I even addressed the black lives matter, that's an organization that put that out there. The only reason I even address it is because they have shaken down multiple US corporations to the tune of millions and millions of dollars that they use for their leader, by the way, a trained Marxist as she called herself to gotten an expense, you know, spent a bunch of money in a spa resort and actually bought herself a multimillion dollar home. They are charlatans, they are a Ponzi scheme, they are a fraud. So that's the only reason I care about them is because they've shaken down and continue to shake down corporations. Now in the case of the embargo, the only embargo on Cuba is the one the Cuban government has imposed on its own people. Do you know who the number one food exporter to Cuba is? The United States of America. Do you know that we send over $200 million a year in medicine and humanitarian supplies? Do you know that over $3 billion, which is a significant percentage of their overall economy, are remittances from Cuban Americans to their family members? What the embargo on Cuba is the Cuban government will not allow a Cuban to own a business. You can't opened a hardware store in Cuba. They won't let you. You fishermen can't sell their fish to people in Cuba farmers can't sell their food. They're the ones that have an embargo against their own people. If they allow their people to open businesses, there's nothing in the law that prohibits us from being able to do business with independent people. What you can't do business with is a military owned company that controls that revenue and then uses it to control and repress people.

John Roberts 5:22
That Black Lives Matter senator's rationale for saying what it said about the United States and Cuba is this, they say quote, Cuba has historically demonstrated solidarity with oppressed peoples of African descent for protecting black revolutionaries, like Assata Shakur through granting her asylum to supporting black liberation struggles in Angola, Mozambique, Guinea Bissau, and South Africa. Assata Shakur, whose real name is JoAnne Chesimard, was declared a terrorist by the US government. She was convicted of first degree murder of a New Jersey State Trooper. And Fidel Castro was notorious for exporting bloody revolution to countries where he was trying to prop up pro communist regimes. So who's on the right side of history here?

Marco Rubio 6:04
Well, first of all, I'm again, I just hate talking about him because they're charlatans, they're Posers, they're fake. They're just there to steal money from people.

John Roberts 6:11
But they have an audience.

Marco Rubio 6:12
Well, I hope the audience sees where they are now. So let me say two things. Yes, that she's a cop killer. I mean, she murdered a trooper. And that tells you everything you need to know about that organization. And here's the other point I would make about those of African descent. I don't know if people know this, but if you watch the videos, it's pretty obvious. Cuba has a very substantial percentage of people of African descent that in sum approximates over 50% of the population. A lot of them were in the street, getting their heads cracked open by that regime. So I think they need to watch these videos and stop talking all of this nonsense and stupidity.

Sandra Smith 6:43
Senator Rubio, we are awaiting Angela Merkel there at the White House, who we catch a glimpse of her arriving. We'll show that to our audience. Meanwhile, the White House via the press secretary was just asked about the ongoing situation in Cuba. And I believe this is Jen Psaki answering a question from our own Peter Doocy, just a short time ago, listen.

Jen Psaki 7:04
Communism is a failed ideology. And we certainly believe that. It has failed the people of Cuba. They deserve freedom. They deserve a government that supports them. Instead, this has been a government, an authoritarian communist regime that has repressed its people and has failed the people of Cuba, hence we're seeing them in the streets.

Sandra Smith 7:25
You and your party were demanding the White House call this what it is and demanding that of Bernie Sanders and summoned the squad as well to call out socialism, to call out communism. You just heard her say communism is a failed ideology. Do you believe that the White House is responding adequately to this?

Marco Rubio 7:42
I agree with Jen Psaki, I can't believe I'm saying that. She's exactly right. I wish they would have said that on Sunday night instead of today. But look, at least they're finally saying it. Hey, we're making some progress here, guys, it looks like, on convincing them that it's okay to condemn Marxism. But at the same time, I'm hearing right now, as we speak, that the people driving Cuba policy in this administration are telling President Biden that the response that we should have to what happened is that we should once again lift Trump era restrictions that did not allow the Cuban military to control the money that Cuban Americans send their relatives, because you would send money to your relatives, they would take 10 or 15% off the top and skim it. And they would all go into their pockets so that they can repress people. And some people in the administration are telling the president what our response should be is allow them to keep allow them to do that, again,

Sandra Smith 8:28
What would the result of that be?

Marco Rubio 8:29
I mean, it would be a big win. I mean, the the regime would say, Boy, this cracking of the heads that we did on Sunday, this killing of people on the streets really worked, all we got to do is make stuff really bad for the people of Cuba on the ground, and the administration over there is going to scramble to try to meet one of our demands, in order to address it. What it would mean? It would mean this, you send $1, the regime takes 10 cents of that dollar, they give you a 90, they don't give you the 90 cents in dollars, they give it to you in worthless Cuban currency, they put the dollars in their pocket as a foreign reserve. And then by the way, all the stuff that they do sell in that country of any worth is all sold in government stores for dollars. So that's another way to get the dollars out of your hands. Listen, allow banks to go in there, allow a financial tech company to go in there and we can send all the money you want to your relatives, you just can't send it through the company that's owned by the military, the regime of Cuba, you just can't send it to the people that are killing people on the streets in Cuba. That's all and if you change that, that's their response to what happened on Sunday. It's a slap in the face. It's an insult to brave people that took to the streets and demanded liberty and were met with bullets and beatings and jail.

John Roberts 9:37
You know, Senator, you and I spent a lot of time together in 2015 and 2016 on the campaign trail, and you used to tell the story about your parents and how they emigrated from Cuba and arrived here on the shores of the United States. And how they managed to have their family live the American dream. Your father was a bartender, your mother was a housekeeper, and you become a US Senator. Do you believe that if the Biden administration were to put adequate pressure on the Cuban regime now that what we're seeing on the streets of Cuba in 70 different cities, not just Havana, could be leveraged into a moment.

Marco Rubio 10:11
Yes, it's a process. It's not one day to the next. Okay, I'm not telling you this is Battista jumping on a plane in the middle of night and taking off. It's a process, it's going to take some time. But that process has already started. What's happened is irreversible. Okay. What people don't get is that this movement you saw on the street, no one organized it. It literally started because people are fed up, and they finally took to the streets in one city, it got on social media and before you know it, it was in over 50 cities, that's unprecedented. And then people saw what the regime did to them. And that broke, that created a rupture with a regime that is irreversible. And the only question now is, whose side are we going to be on? That's the question here. Whose side are we on? And who are we going to help? Which is why yesterday on Monday, I asked the president to make internet access in Cuba a priority. Yesterday, as a follow up to that meeting we had with the White House, I detailed we spoke to the companies that can do this. They did it in Puerto Rico after 2017 and Maria. There is a way to use federal facilities in Key West and NGOs in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba on the island to provide using these new balloons, these helium balloons, the ability to get unfettered internet access to the people on the ground and Cuba so they can talk to themselves, they can communicate with the world and they can take action and begin to build a new country.

Donald Trump, Jr. 0:00
Okay, guys, watch this video. This is obviously pop star Pitbull, a Cuban American who really appreciates and understands the freedoms that we have here, who's clearly disgusted with what's going on over there. Watch the video, I apologize for the language. It's not what I tried to do, certainly not on here can't help that. But he's got some passion. And I certainly understand in this case, watch what he says, and let's act.

Pitbull 0:26
This is a message to the world. We need to stand up, step up. But if you don't understand what's going on, then you need to wake the <<_>> up. Not only is this a Cuba event, a Cuba thing, this is a world event. This isn't about politics. This is about saving lives. This is about unity, not division. And bottom line, it's about taking action. Let me tell you something, why I'm frustrated. And when I see everybody out there and doing what they're doing, which I love what they're doing. Okay? Because not only do we live for freedom, we ride for freedom, we die for freedom, but we don't <<_>> appreciate freedom. And it gets me hot, it bothers me and it frustrates me to a certain extent being a Cuban American, and having a platform to speak to the world and not being able to help my own people, not being able to get them food, not being able to get them water, not being able to get them medicine. But most of all, not being able to help and really get them what they deserve, which is freedom. And this is my way of talking to the world. All world allies get together to help. Global businesses get together to help. People that we're so proud of, people such as Jeff Bezos, Cuban American, graduated from high school in Miami, built one of the biggest companies in the world, the richest man in the world. He's somebody that can get involved and really help us on what we got. All we can do is create awareness. But politics are gonna be politricks. And while they figure out what they figure out, we need to figure out how to really help. We need to get creative. We need to figure out solutions, while they're losing their lives over there literally for something that we wake up every day and appreciate, which is freedom. So everybody out there, stand up, step up. And if you don't understand, get with the <<_>> program and wake up. Because this is about freedom, and it's about human rights. And to everybody in Cuba, keep the fight up. [Message in Spanish]

Donald Trump, Jr. 2:34
Okay, so you saw that. It's clear, he gets it. I love that he actually calls out Jeff Bezos. All these Hollywood woke people, we need to get them to step up and actually see what's going on, because the one thing that I think he perhaps neglects to mention, or doesn't quite see just yet, is the same oppressive regimes and nonsense that's going on in Cuba seems to be what they're trying to pull over here. You notice how freedom of speech seems to really only go one way. You notice how law enforcement seems to only prosecute one side of the spectrum. You notice how only certain people would get in trouble for that. Imagine the Don Jr. laptop from hell versus the Hunter Biden laptop from hell. You have an attack on the Second Amendment. You have an attack on the general freedoms that we have right here. So while he doesn't want to make it political, and I understand that, look at what's going on right here. The Democrat Party is embracing Marxism and communism, you have people that are outwardly pushing for it that are thought leaders in the Democrat Party. You don't think that that's the end game? Look at what communism and socialism has done to every country they've ever been in. If you don't think it's coming here, you're wrong. It doesn't mean we shouldn't help Cuba. We should make sure that people understand what's going on all over the world in these sorts of regimes. We've got to prevent them there and we've got to prevent them right here at home.

Cuban Girl 0:00
I'm going to speak in English about what's going on in Cuba, because I don't hear a lot of English speakers talking about this and my generation talking about this. Cuba has been under dictatorship for 62 years. So people, naturally, for the last 62 years since 1960s, and 1958, around there, people started making homemade boats that we call lanchas and have bring them to the coast of Florida seeking shelter. Let me explain to you why, because you might be saying, well, they're just immigrants invading because they want to leave their home country. No, it's because us Cubans, we don't complain about anything. It takes a lot for us to complain. And this I'm sick and tired of it. So let me tell you what's going on. There's no coffins for dead bodies. If you have a dead family member, they get pronounced dead. They get wrapped in a bedsheet; you get delivered the dead body and you have to take it home with you. What you do with the body? They don't care. You have to figure it out. If you don't have a car, they don't provide transportation and you have to take the dead body home, walking. There's no drinking water. Food costs 200 US dollars; a pound of rice costs 200 US dollars. You don't want to know how much a 10 pound one costs. My favorite part. Canadian dollars is a currency of Cuba right now. If you don't have family here in the United States to give you money, you have to figure it out. You have to figure it out. Because the only way you can get money in Cuba is if you get itsent to you by here. Oh, and here? It takes months to get to Cuba. They shut off their light and water at 7. As soon as the sun goes down, your electricity gets shut. Internet is shut right now worldwide in Cuba. That's right. We're not getting any new news. But we have family there. Everybody's out on the streets right now, just the same way they were yesterday. They're out on the streets right now. There's no medication, there's no Advil, there's no antibiotics, there's no butterfly needles, there's no IVs. There's nothing. There's nothing and now is when people are hearing the screams out of Cuba. I'm sick and tired of this dictatorship and my whole life, when we visited Cuba, you could not say a word against the government. But now I can go to my country and say [Spanish]. <<_>> the regimen.

To the people of Cuba, I want you to know your message is being heard. Your bravery is being seen. And it's worth it. This is potentially an inflection point. And America should stand up and speak boldly on the side of freedom. There's a reason those protesters carry our flags. There is a reason they look to America as a beacon of hope and freedom across the globe. To the people of Cuba, we stand with you. You have a right to be free and your courage is inspiring.

Yesterday, Wednesday, July 14, a friend and contributor to Ruby Ray Media messaged us and wanted us to help her friend get his story out. So, we talked to seventh generation Texan and Navy veteran Eliazar "Cisco" Cisneros. We are featuring here our very first recorded video interview.

Cisco is among a group of patriots being sued by Biden Leftists for protesting the ridiculous Biden-Harris platform in their home State. Some of you might remember the video footage that got around social media showing that the Sleepy Joe con game was not welcome in the Lone Star State.

We start this article with earlier coverage by Gateway Pundit's Alicia Powe, who also interviewed Cisco, then we have our interview on video and a transcript of all 21 minutes, posted below.
