I remember my trip to Key West some 10 years ago. I stood at the southern most point in the continental U.S. and looked at a sign that read something like “90 Miles from Cuba.” I must admit, it gave me a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach. I still look at Cuba with a judgmental eye I suppose. Our history with Communist Cuba has been a mixed bag of emotions. Most of them are not good.
The Cuban Missile Crisis happened before I was born, but I may get to see it re-lived in my lifetime. How many people know that Russia has deployed Nuclear Weapons to Cuba?
The reason I ask is because if you do internet searches you will not find mainstream media sources reporting this. What do you find? You find sources like Alex Jones and infowars.com.
So, then, here is the rub. This site is full of legitimate truth but like most conspiracy theorists, a few outlandish stories that do not gain acceptance will destroy overall credibility. So if it’s only sites like Infowars reporting the story then it must not be true. Right? After all, if CNN is not reporting it…we should not need to worry, correct?
Not on your life. Let me tell you how you get to the truth of these stories. You go to sources outside the USA and see what they have to say. That is the only way to overcome our state-run main stream media. So I looked for the story in Pravda. The story is over a year old now, which shows you exactly how concerned our government is with the situation.
Why is the public not outraged about Russian Nuclear weapons in Cuba? Because the public simply does not know about it or doesn’t believe it. Let’s look at a direct quote from the President of the Russian Federation in 2012:
“In 2001 I, as the President of the Russian Federation and the supreme commander, deemed it advantageous to withdraw the radio-electronic center Lourdes from Cuba. In exchange for this, George Bush, the then U.S. president, has assured me that this decision would become the final confirmation that the Cold War was over and both of our states, getting rid of the relics of the Cold War, will start building a new relationship based on cooperation and transparency. In particular, Bush has convinced me that the U.S. missile defense system will never be deployed in Eastern Europe.
The Russian Federation has fulfilled all terms of the agreement. And even more. I shut down not only the Cuban Lourdes but also Kamran in Vietnam. I shut them down because I gave my word of honor. I, like a man, has kept my word. What have the Americans done? The Americans are not responsible for their own words. It is no secret that in recent years, the U.S. created a buffer zone around Russia, involving in this process not only the countries of Central Europe, but also the Baltic states, Ukraine and the Caucasus. The only response to this could be an asymmetric expansion of the Russian military presence abroad, particularly in Cuba. In Cuba, there are convenient bays for our reconnaissance and warships, a network of the so-called “jump airfields.” With the full consent of the Cuban leadership, on May 11 of this year, our country has not only resumed work in the electronic center of Lourdes, but also placed the latest mobile strategic nuclear missiles “Oak” on the island. They did not want to do it the amicable way, now let them deal with this,” Putin said. Source: http://english.pravda.ru/russia/politics/01-08-2012/121804-russia_army_base-0/
Great job of foreign relations Mr. Obama. Bush agrees to a symbolic ending to the cold war and you bring it back. Your foreign relations and defense policies are a mystery to most of us. Every time I see something like this I believe more and more that the movie “2016” was accurate in its premise. You simply hate America and want to see it destroyed.
OK, now I am not sure that this matters with warheads 90 miles from our mainland, but… I have to wonder why on earth Obama would choose this time to take down our TARS system and further weaken our Southern Defenses?
As the Federal government spends billions of dollars to expand the surveillance and monitoring of U.S. citizens with electronic eavesdropping devices and drone aircraft, it has decided to shut down a surveillance system that protects the southern border and coastline against low-flying aircraft and missiles and assists U.S. Customs and Border Protection in interdicting illegal border crossings and smuggling.
The Administration of President Barack Obama is shutting down the Tethered Aerostat Radar System (TARS) that uses moored balloons hovering at about 15,000 feet to watch for incoming aircraft and missiles that may penetrate U.S. air space. NORAD, the U.S. Air Force and customs all rely on the system. Source: http://www.sodahead.com/united-states/obama-shuts-down-southern-defense-mechanism-opens-south-to-attack/question-3503011/
Again, I wonder what effectiveness this system would have against warheads deployed 90 miles from Southern Florida, but you have to look at the consistent actions, or lack of actions, by this President.
While he attempts to disarm American citizens and weaken our military, he continues to send military aid to other countries and turns a blind eye to the potential predators on our own doorstep.
Tell me Obama doesn’t hate this country and want to see it destroyed.
Go ahead, say it with a straight face this time.
Things have certainly changed. There is no more transparency in government. I will not say that I believe that we have ever known everything our government is up to, but we seem to get less information every single day. The fact is that President John F. Kennedy addressed Americans on October 22, 1962. It was just 6 days after he learned of Russian nuclear capabilities in Cuba.
OK Mr. Obama… In all fairness it has been about 6 months now since this story broke. When do you suggest we might start talking about this?
If you want to understand the motives of our President I suggest you buy yourself a good set of ear plugs and watch him. His actions are the best indication of his truth.

Note From Dean: I made a small edit to the article from it’s original form. Originally I read the Pravda article and noticed the 1-8-12 date. My mind was stuck on the way we date our stories here. That was actually August 1st, 2012…not January 8, 2012. I apologize, originally I stated that it had been 13 months since Pravda reported this story. It has been 6 months.
Thanks for this article. This one must have been burried in the news last year. I dont remember hearing of this. It is nice to know that they could nuke or EMP us at a moments notice. They know that our leadership is weak and they are monopolizing on it. Notice that Russia has recently bought three times the weight of the Statue of Liberty in Gold and have also become the largest oil producer in the world, 2nd only to S.A., while we were asleep. Cold War anyone??????
(Something else to prep for I guess)
I miss the days of “American Exceptionalism” 😦
Bulldog I miss those days too. I am 44 so my first real political awareness came in the days of Reagan. Comparing those days to these is certainly like comparing night and day.
I wish I could say the same. I will be 45 in a month and I was too busy acting a fool in the 80s to pay attention. Since taking the “Red Pill”, I am too aware sometimes. We could use a Reagan right now though.
Don’t forget that America’s most basic enemy, which doesn’t move on to be replaced like government representatives, is the corrupt, Marxist-oriented, America-hating news media that undermines the sacred Republic by deceiving the voters 24/7. If patriots are going to win this war, we must boycott, bankrupt, smash and destroy the mainstream media. The California grape growers will tell you that boycotts work. The media today all operate on thin profit margins. They soon would be replaced by honest, Internet-based media who would tap into the incredible gold mines of advertising revenue. Business, like nature, hates a vacuum. If 200 million Americans ever learn how they’ve been suckered, it could get bloody.
Can this be confirmed by any decent sources (Not that CBS/NBC/MSNBC can be considered impartial and legitimate, honest and trustworthy) other than these I have found?
Kelly, this is exactly the point. Pravda is a Russian news source. It is widely considered to be a propaganda machine for the Russian government. But what people do not realize is that all of our major networks are viewed as the same around the world. They are also viewed as propaganda machines. So in the end who do you believe? This is my thought… A responsible press would have at the very least acknowledged what the Russians were saying and tried to prove them wrong. They did NOTHING. To be that speaks volumes. I believe it is true, and I believe the White House is hiding it. We all have our own opinions. But Putin said it. Whether he was lying to try to intimidate us, or if he is serious… He did say it. Pravda is a respected publication in Russia.
No, what we could use is the only option left. Kick them all out and start over.
Yes, I said the only option left.
I’m convinced we don’t have enough time to wait for 40 years of elections to do the job. If we even make it to the next presidential election before a financial collapse or something else happening I would be greatly surprised. Things are just accelerating too fast right now to stop without a massive reset by We the People.
The sooner we take control back the sooner we get back on the right road.
Another version of the same story…It is only quoted once in Pravda. There are allegedly no other sources to confirm (or deny) this report.
Now days we have a cesspool of TRAITORS in the government…During the past century over forty-six hundred young mens/women’s have been sent to Oxford University where they were indoctrinated in socialism and world government, Bill Clinton, General Wesley Clack, Strobe Talbot, Senator Bill Bradley, and thousands of others, pay by the Cecil John Rhodes Scholarship Fund,.. “To further the BRITISH EMPIRE, FOR THE BRINGING OF THE WHOLE UNCIVILIZED WORLD UNDER BRITISH RULE, FOR THE RECOVERY OF THE UNITED STATES, FOR THE MAKING THE ANGLO-SAXON RACE BUT ONE EMPIRE” (Confession of Faith, Cecil Rhodes 1877)…Who are this people?, they work in government offices, in International Banks, on the Boards of Corporations, IN TAX-EXENT FOUNDATIONS, in the SUPREME COURT, in the MEDIA, in our Universities, in the UNITED NATION and in the COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS, just CONNECT THE POINTS, for almost hundred years, the INTERNATIONAL BANKERS has been conspiring to destroy the AMERICAN CONSTITUTION and to implement a totalitarian commune-fascist society under they control…what they call the NEW WORLD ORDER, and after the end of WWII the globalist conspirators at the Royal Institute of International Affairs in London and the COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS in New York, devoted all their energy and creativity to devise a plan to impose on the people of the WORLD their DEMONIC creation…now here is a question, why was Obama chosen by the COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS for the pResidence of the White House?…did the CFR appoint him to turn a possible rebellion into a race war?, did they appoint him because, due to his inability to offer proof that he really is a natural born citizen, they can blackmail him with their knowledge that they can ged rid of him any time they want if he don’t follow their ORDERS?, it is evident that Obama is a PUPPET OF THE CFR, he can’t produce any coherent argument when he is not fallowing his CFR controlled teleprompter. Still, Obama is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma, and protected by a BODY GUARD of LIES behind a dark curtain of disinformation by a cesspool of dishonest, corrupt, CRIMINAL and COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS CONTROLLED judiciary, MEDIA and a BODY GUARD OF CIA OPERATIVE working under the ORDERS OF THE COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS. The whole State Department, Defense Department, both political parties, and Supreme Court is controlled by the COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS, and remember that the Republican and Democrat party are controlled by the COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS. We are living a MONUMENTAL LIE.
Im now seventy years old, But in 1962′ I WAS 19 YRS Old’ And serving on my first Ship. The AC Carrer Franklin D. Roosevelt CVA-42, On the day’ we had just arived home, After a 6mo. Deployment. We recived Orders to prepair to get underway’ on the evening tide, At Dawn on the third day’ We were just off the cost of Cuba. Not being aware of present events’ As we had been’ qt’ out of the country’ and didnt get News’ as is commen in this day. Our Commanding Offficer’ Made the Anouncement’ “after sounding general quorters” His statement’ The President has given Rusha and Cuba’ 24houres’ to remove there missles from this Island, If they dont’ Were going to SINK The G.D. Thing.
That’s when THE COMMANDER IN CHIEF had integrity, honor and brass balls. I’m shamed to admit but i barely made the decision to do something like talk to neighbors and people I don’t know about the nonsense going on. We were at D.C. Feb.12th, to protest the FRAUD in office. With signs in front of SCOTUS. calling out the coward. But he has decided to take his case to the court of public opinion. I don’t understand how people fall for his b.s. Maybe too much fluoride or vaccines???
No need to learn Russian as all educated rusians speak english the problem is will americans speak it ?

Maybe the Russians will invade & liberate us.
I am sure that everyone has noticed the advances of a common enemy within the United States and also that of European Countries as well as Russia. I am talking about islam. Now don’t go getting all uppity about bagging another culture or whatever. I suggest that you read the quran, it’s not very long and you will have all the answers you need, and you will understand why you should be looking at constructive efforts to halt and reverse the jihad, (there are many types of jihads) that has been revved up since the actions that took place on 9/11. Consider yourself intelligent and you may see that the US and Russia may actually need to hold hands on this one. After all the battle, yes battle, that is happening now has in fact been ongoing for the last 1400 years, they only had one major drawback and that was at Vienna. So the joining of the two powers may be required to take back the Western World including the Eastern Bloc Countries, apart from Afghanistan, of which both Russia and the US have tried to dominate, we only have Israel fighting the battle, before long Syria will fall completely to the full control of sharia law (allah’s law) Chechnia wont be far behind, and Dearborn USA is going in that direction too, England may already be too late. How many things need to occur before it is irreversible. Our freedom of speech is the primary aim of sharia, it is already happening, then Government replacement by sharia. Don’t worry about Russian Missiles, Putin has the same dilemmas regarding islam and I am sure that working together would be a big start.
Barack Obama is nothing but a traitor and a danger to this nation. I am not sure what it will take for the few scragglers he has following him to admit that he is a fraud, liar, traitor, terrorist loving scum bag,,,,,,,,but in simple English thats him in a nut shell.
