Beyonce and Jay-Z went on an anniversary vacation to Cuba, displaying their superiority to standard American citizens. Fox News and other media types exposed this further, pointing out that there is an embargo against Cuba and travel to Cuba is not allowed. The embargo is called the ‘Cuban Democracy Act’ that was made law in the ’90s as an extension of the embargo from the ’60s. It’s a form of punishment for Cuba not pushing towards a democratization of government since they operate with a form of communism. The argument for keeping the embargo intact is that Cuba has human rights violations and sponsors terrorism. Arguments against it claim that it hurts the citizens mostly through increased expenses and negative effects on food, water and medicine. This actually gives the Castro family an excuse for the poor conditions of the country, as they blame the US for some of these problems. Cuba does in fact have a laundry list of human rights violations, including deplorable prison conditions and torture. A Cuban government opponent, Elizardo Sanchez, made the news recently when he died from a hunger strike protest of his prison sentence (he got four years for disrespecting authority and resisting arrest).
I personally don’t know if isolation from the country is actually helping or hurting, but that is another topic. The focus of this is to highlight the public display of power by the Illuminati players.
News reports now indicate that Jay-Z and Beyonce were giving a special clearance by the Department of the Treasury to make the trip, on the terms of a licensed program for “educational exchange.” Obviously, a wedding anniversary trip is not the same as an “educational exchange” so who are they fooling. This is a public display of dominance and elitists at its finest. These two can go anywhere in the world they want, so that leads me to believe there’s more going on here than what is on the surface.
Here’s the legislation straight from the travel department’s website:
ENTRY / EXIT REQUIREMENTS, TRAVEL TRANSACTION LIMITATIONS: The Cuban Assets Control Regulations are enforced by the U.S. Department of the Treasury and affect all U.S. citizens and permanent residents wherever they are located, all people and organizations physically located in the United States, and all branches and subsidiaries of U.S. organizations throughout the world. The regulations require that persons subject to U.S. jurisdiction be licensed in order to engage in any travel-related transactions pursuant to travel to, from, and within Cuba, or that the transactions in question be exempt from licensing requirements.
Here’s the Dice-man’s take on it:
UPDATE: Jay-Z dropped a song called ‘Open Letter’ that addresses Cuba (among other things). Here’s HipHopDX‘s news on it:
Jay-Z immediately kicks off “Open Letter” with a reference to his controversial trip to Cuba as he dotes on turning the city’s capital of Havana into Atlanta before addressing the various politician’s who’ve called for the investigation of his trip.
“Politicians never did shit for me/ Except lie to me, distort history/ Wanna give me jail time and a fine/ Fine, let me commit a real crime,” Jay-Z raps.
Here’s that song:
During a White House press briefing earlier today, Politico reporter Donovan Slack asked White House Press Secretary Jay Carney whether President Obama gave Jay-Z and Beyoncé clearance for their travel, based off a lyric from the rapper’s just-released song “Open Letter.”
After reciting the lyric (“I turned Havana into Atlanta… Boy from the hood/ I got White House clearance… Obama said, ‘Chill you gonna get me impeached/ You don’t need this shit anyway, chill with me on the beach'”), Slack asked Carney if Obama did indeed give Jay-Z clearance.
Carney brushed off the question with sarcasm: “I guess nothing rhymes with Treasury… because Treasury offers and gives licenses for travel, as you know, and the White House has nothing to do with it.”
“I am absolutely saying that the White house from the President on down had nothing to do with anybody’s travel to Cuba that is something that Treasury handles.,” he continued.
And if Carney didn’t make himself clear before, he shut down the conversation by denying White House approval straight forward.
“It’s a song, Donovan. The President did not communicate with Jay-Z over this trip.”
Pretty good comeback by the Press Secretary! So there you go, Obama is apparently not in the Illuminati, but the Treasury Department is. Here’s the video:
