Incoming THREAT from CUBA and CHINA

The alarm was raised by the congressman whose district is located less than 100 miles from Cuba after a shocking investigation turned up many photos of highly developed spy sites in the communist country.


There is no denying China played a significant role in the establishment and management of the bases, according to Rep. Carlos Gimenez, R-Fla., in an interview on Wednesday.


Once the images were made public by the politically neutral Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), Gimenez went into further detail, pointing out that China’s official actions in the region “remain[s] shrouded in secrecy.”


Gimenez expressed concerns about counterintelligence, pointing out that only his district is home to the Key West Naval Air Station, Homestead Air Force Base, and the U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) is only a mile away.


“[This] is an example of the growing influence of China and Russia in our hemisphere,” Gimenez stated.


“The Biden administration continues to placate our enemies in the hemisphere instead of trying to do what they can to get [nonviolent] regime change,” he stated.

Biden’s “weakness” was ascribed by Rep. Maria Elvira Salazar, R-Fla., to the expansion of CCP influence abroad.


“America must respond with strength and tell the Cuban regime that we will not allow them to restart this new Cold War right on our doorstep,” Salazar stated.


Gimenez stated that his area is less than 100 miles away from one or more of the locations that CSIS has identified. He compared it to having a spy facility that is as close as the opposite end of Alligator Alley in Naples, monitoring Miami.


He denounced the White House for carrying on the diplomatic “opening” with Cuba’s authoritarian government that began under Obama.


Gimenez went on, citing Reps. Deborah Wasserman Schultz, Jared Moskowitz, and Frederica Wilson as Democrats who are equally concerned about China’s malicious influence in Cuba as they are about the Diaz-Canel government. These Democrats are primarily in Florida.


He issued a warning that the Chinese may watch offshore U.S. military training and simulation activities using the Cuban sites. He claimed it would offer China a firsthand glimpse at how the United States would react if Taiwan were invaded.


Researchers Matthew Funaiole, Aidan Powers-Riggs, Brian Hart, Henry Ziemer, Joseph Bermudez Jr., Ryan Berg, and Christopher Hernandez-Roy of CSIS’s Hidden Reach team issued a warning in their study on the close proximity of the bases to the several critical U.S. sites located in Florida and the southeast.
