Mr. Claver-Carone of CapitolHillCubans.com posted this article today:
Profit$ in Anti-Sanctions Advocacy?
Are anti-sanctions lobbyists, activists and interest groups profiting from their advocacy?
Last week, U.S. Senator Richard Lugar of Indiana and U.S. Congressman Howard Berman of California wrote an opinion editorial in the Miami Herald calling for the unconditional lifting of tourism-travel sanctions towards Castro’s Cuba.
On the very same day, the price of the Herzfeld Caribbean Basin Fund (CUBA) jumped 4%. This fund holds about 100 companies—both foreign and U.S. based—that should benefit economically (in conjunction with the Castro regime) from the lifting of tourism-travel sanctions.
Regardless—for the sake of transparency—we call on Public Campaign to conduct an investigation into the fund’s investors and issue a report on any potential profiting by lobbyists, activists and interest groups that oppose sanctions.
Really Mr. Claver-Carone? You gave tens of thousands of US Cuba PAC money to US House Representatives to influence their vote and said you were proud to exercise your rights and now you make this argument?
First you have no proof or even any reason to think that any of these people even own stock in CUBA and you have no proof or any reason to think that their actions to allow Americans the freedom of travel gives them any financial gain. Unlike all the Cuban Americans in Miami who get millions of dollars per year from the US government from USAID and grants for Radio Marti and the like. Not to mention the power that the ros-lehtinen’s and diaz-balarts get from having Fidel in power.
PLEASE. CapitolHillCubans.com is the Granma of the Right Wing.
This is typical propaganda… when you are caught, blame your enemy.
Mr. Claver-Carone is a very dangerous man to American freedoms.
