SORT BY Relevancy
Dr. Julio Antonio del Marmol is the son of the principal financier behind Castro's Revolution, Leonardo del Marmol. Due to the close relationship he had with Fidel at that time, Leonardo was able to get the young Julio Antonio's letter detailing his idea about training an "army for the future" into the hands of the new Commander-in-Chief. And so it was that, at the age of 12, Julio Antonio became the youngest Commander in the Rebel Army ("el Commandantico") and the Commander-in-Chief of the Young Commandos of the Rebel Army. In this position, he was a part of the Fidel's inner circle, and so saw firsthand the plans the Castros and their friend, Che Guevara, had for the island of Cuba. Alarmed, he went immediately to his father to warn him of the impending betrayal, only to be met with an outraged dismissal from the house. Utterly disillusioned, he confided everything to an uncle in Havana, only to learn that his uncle had been a spy since World War II. Convinced by his uncle's passion, Julio Antonio underwent intensive intelligence training, becoming the youngest spy in Cuban history before he had even turned 13.
Over the next decade, until politicians blew his cover in 1971, Julio Antonio took secrets right out of Fidel Castro's very office and transmitted them to U.S. Naval Intelligence at Guantanamo. He became the most-hunted spy in all of Cuba, codenamed by Castro himself as "the Lightning." His cover blown, he is given 48 hours to get off of the island before Cuba's G-2 counterintelligence agency catch up with him to put him before the firing squad.
Guest: Joao Cerqueira, author of the novel "The tragedy of Fidel Castro".

CUBANOS IN WISCONSIN BY SILVIO CANTO JR
Humberto Fontova was born in Havana, Cuba. He and his family of 5 attempted to leave in 1961, but only 4 of them were successful. Humberto Fontova Sr. (author's father) was grabbed by the milicianos. He yelled to Esther (mother) and the 3 kids (Humberto age 7, Patricia age 8, and Enrique age 5) to "Go ahead!....Whatever happens to me, I don't want ya'll growing up here!" The next day, from a cousin's house in Miami, Esther called Cuba and found out that Humberto Sr. was in La Cabana, firing squad central where 2100 men and boys were murdered. Humberto Sr. stayed there for 3 months and then was released and returned to his family in New Orleans.
History records few propaganda campaigns as phenomenally successful or enduring as Castro and Che’s. The Longest Romance exposes the full scope of this deception; it documents the complicity of major U.S. media players in spreading Castro’s propaganda and in coloring the world’s view of his totalitarian regime. Castro’s cachet as a celebrity icon of anti-Americanism has always overshadowed his record as a warmonger, racist, sexist, Stalinist, and godfather of modern terrorism. The Longest Romance uncovers this shameful history and names its major accomplices.

Here at North Florida Writer Live we’re sure that the topic for Wednesday night is, at best, confusing to understand. But we’re fortunate to have our frequent guest, Meg Norris of Opt Out Georgia, bring us some exciting news about what is going on in Georgia to push for legislation to dramatically change the Common Core disaster that we see all over this great land. Meg also informed me about a businessman who has great knowledge of the real Cuba, Alex Gimenez, who will tell us about the plight of the poor Cuban people. An American by birth born to parents of Cuban and Argentinian descent, he is concerned about what we don’t know about Cuba. While we are opening doors and lifting the embargo against Cuba per the President’s executive actions, the Cuban people are living under an internal embargo courtesy of the Castro regime. The poor citizens basically own nothing and serve as serfs for the state. In the words of the late and great Paul Harvey, Alex brings “the rest of the story”.
Alex is the father of two grown children and he is also very concerned about the educational system here in America and in his hometown of Atlanta. So we’ll also get his take on Common Core and what a good businessman with international experience, not a crony-capitalist as a lapdog to the state, thinks about the process and what should be done about it.
It should be a great discussion. The show goes live Wednesday night at 7. You won’t want to miss this one. See you then.
