“Former President George W. Bush will headline a Valley fundraising dinner for Sen. Jeff Flake next month as the Arizona Republican’s 2018 re-election campaign revs up.”
Senator Jeff Flake probably ranks as the Castro regime’s top champion on Capitol Hill–and he’s held this “honor” for well over a decade, almost from the minute he entered congress in 2000. Towards his passion to enrich the Castro-Family-Crime-Syndicate Jeff Flake co-founded the Congressional “Cuba Working Group,” in 2002.

Jeff Flake yukking it up with Roberta Jacobson, Obama’s top envoy in his surrender toCastro which included releasing convicted terrorist-murderer Gerardo Hernandez. Is Flake (who also played a major role in the surrender) yukking about lying in the faces of Hernandez’ victims regarding his release?
Among Senator Jeff Flake’s closest associates on Cuba policy we find Phil Peters, a former State Dept. employee who often accompanies Senator Flake on his frequent trips to Cuba. Mr Peters is widely described by the media as a “Cuba expert.” Unlike the thousands upon thousands of Cubans who annually risk their lives to escape Cuba, Mr Peters– like Senator Flake– slips in and out of totalitarian Cuba seemingly at will. This red carpet by the Castro regime for Mr Peters– like the one for Senator Flake—has been rolled out for many years. In fact Flake and Peters often stroll down this red carpet together.
Phil Peters, you might recall, all but called Rosa Maria Paya a liar for claiming the Castro regime murdered her father Oswaldo Paya. The evidence for this typically-Castroite murder is so overwhelming that even John Podesta recognizes it, as revealed by WikiLeaks. Peters, as usual, was dutifully carrying out his orders.
Phil Peters also parroted the howler about Castro sending all that military equipt to North Korea “for repairs.” Not even the UN could swallow that one. Indeed their investigation confirmed what “hard-liners” said from the get-go. Again, Phil peters was dutifully carrying out his orders.
Mr Peters formerly served as Vice President of a “Think-Tank” titled the Lexington Institute and today co-owns a consultancy called D-I7 Strategies with another quoted “Cuba Expert” and Jeff Flake champion named Julia Sweig. This consultancy helps forge business partnerships between U.S. businessmen and Cuban communist apparatchiks.
By the way, in 2008, U.S. Military Counterintelligence officer, Lieut. Col. Simmons outed Ms Julia Sweig as an outright Castro regime “agent-of-influence.”
A few years ago a court discovery document revealed right here at Babalu Blog by Henry Gomez revealed astonishing items about the relationship between the Castro regime and Senator Flake’s close and long-time accomplice on Cuba policy Mr Peters. Turns out, that the Canadian company Sherritt International (one of the Castro regime’s top business partners—probably the top trafficker in stolen U.S. property, a company whose CEO was barred by U.S. law from entering the U.S.) was funneling under-the-table payments to Phil peters–one of Jeff Flake’s most important associates on Cuba policy:
“Canada’s Sherritt works quietly in Washington,” start’s the discovery document I mentioned earlier. “Recently it has given money to a former State Department employee, Phil Peters, to advance its interests. The money to Peters goes through contributions to the Lexington Institute, where Peters is a vice president. Because the Lexington Institute is a 501(c) (3) not-for-profit, there is no public record of Sherritt’s funding. This has allowed Peters to advise and direct the Cuba Working Group (founded by Jeff Flake in 2002) in ways beneficial to Sherritt…for instance when the House Cuba Working Group made it’s first visit to Cuba last year (2002) at Peters’ behest, it made a point of visiting Sherritt’s soybean-processing facility and staying in a hotel in which Sherritt has a 25% interest.”
