Obama Appoints Cuban Spy Ambassador to El Salvador

The potential damage to our security interests at home and abroad of putting left-wing extremists in charge of the country could hardly be overstated. Our Community Activist in Chief has actually appointed a known communist spy as Ambassador to El Salvador.

On Dec. 9, Obama nominated Mari Del Carmen Aponte to be ambassador to El Salvador, despite the fact that in the late 1990s, the FBI discovered that she was working with Cuban intelligence officers. According to Insight Magazine, “When the FBI eventually questioned her about her involvement with Cuban intelligence, she reportedly refused to cooperate.”

It should be noted that the Cuban regime on whose behalf Aponte spied on America planned massive terror attacks in New York City and urged the Soviet Union to launch a nuclear strike against the USA. But let’s not assume that the appointment was motivated by unadulterated treason. Maybe it’s just another example of unsavory characters looking out for their own:

Why would Aponte escape the Obama administration’s scrutiny? Because she is a former board member of the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), the largest Hispanic advocacy organization in the United States, with 300 affiliated community-based organizations, many of which run like local ACORN offices. In fact, the day before Obama nominated Aponte, NCLR-affiliate Chicanos Por La Causa (CPLC) was raided by the Phoenix Sheriff’s Office, which was investigating a kickback scheme between CPLC and indicted Maricopa County Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox. CPLC allegedly gave Wilcox $297,000 in undisclosed loans in exchange for her votes to award over a million dollars in county contracts to CPLC.

Or maybe it does all come down to treason:

The Obama administration has consistently bent over backward to seek the approval of the NCLR. La Raza, by the way, means “The Race”; the organization’s founding document, el Plan Espiritual de Aztlan, rips the “brutal ‘gringo’ invasion of our territories” and urges Hispanics to “[reclaim] the land of their birth,” while declaring that “the call of our blood is our power, our responsibility, and our inevitable destiny.”

“Aztlan” refers to the planned “reconquista” — i.e., demographic conquest — of the southwestern third of our country. Our “post-racial” president and the rabidly anti-Caucasian La Raza get along fabulously.

Then-Sen. Obama appeared at the 2007 NCLR national conference, where he pledged, “I will not walk away from the 12 million undocumented immigrants who live, work and contribute to our country every day.”

The next year, Obama told the conference that Hispanic communities were being “terrorized by ICE immigration raids” and said that “nursing mothers are torn from their babies.” Even worse, he pledged to crack down on the First Amendment for the benefit of NCLR: “They’re counting on us to stop the hateful rhetoric filling our airwaves — rhetoric that poisons our political discourse, degrades our democracy, and has no place in this great nation.”

Obama’s La Raza appointments started early and often. One of Obama’s first appointments as president was [Director of Intergovernmental Affairs] Cecilia Munoz, a former senior vice president at NCLR. She describes anti-illegal immigration groups as “hate groups” that promote “bigotry.” She has also suggested that crossing the border illegally is “a civil offense, not a criminal one.” President Obama’s first Supreme Court appointment was Sonia Sotomayor, a member of the NCLR.

A country that allows itself to be run by the friends of its enemies does not have a bright future.
