It is an indisputable and now-widely-known fact that on this day 41 years ago, the CIA assassinated Argentine revolutionary, visionary and luminary Ernseto “Che” Guevara in the jungles of Bolivia. From the time that the ever-smiling, cigar-puffing, fearless-beyond-fearless hero had helped Fidel Castro foment the Cuban Revolution and overthrow the horrific dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista, which was backed not only by the American regime but The Syndicate led by international Zionist criminal Meyer Lansky, Washington wanted Che in the dirt. And in La Higuera, October 9th, 1967, the hegemon got what it wanted. Using Bolivian special forces as proxies and the Barrientos coup regime as cover, the CIA had Guevara shot to death.

And to my surprise, when a gentleman put me on game–a Cuban brother who was down with the 1959 Revolution and wanted to go home but ended up getting pinched for gun-running–that’s actually ***EXACTLY*** who he was, albeit in an entirely different setting. This man who the Notorious B.I.G. name-dropped was indeed an OG, but a Cuban not a Brooklynite, and he was indeed as hardcore, slippery, fiery and brilliant as they come, but the “authorities” he defied weren’t Blue Bacon and Feds but the American regime, especially its CIA, the usurping ‘Israeli’ entity and the global Zio-Imperialist system at large. And from this moment forward, I, like y’all, and not millions or even tens of millions but HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of other Moustazafeen (oppressed ones) worldwide, was infatuated with, in awe of, and inspired by this sky-toppling giant known as Castro.

Dec. 17, 2014, was an historic day for Cuba. On that morning, the three remaining Cuban Five members in U.S. prison flew home to freedom.

Havana drew the line at giving back American fugitives granted asylum in Cuba, after NJ Governor Chris Christie urged President Obama to demand extradition of a convicted cop-killer before reestablishing bilateral ties.
The person Christie wants back in a US jail is Assata Shakur, an activist, former member of the Black Panther Party and Black Liberation Army (BLA), who was the first woman to be placed by the FBI on its most-wanted list.
