Bolivia is verwikkeld in een heftige wisseling van de macht. In de achtertuin van de VS heeft de afgezette president Morales al heel lang de Amerikaanse baas getergd. De ontwikkelingen die zich daar nu afspelen worden door de main stream media anders voorgesteld dan deze in werkelijkheid zijn.

De main stream pers over de staatsgreep

De NOS “Morales legde dit weekend zijn functie neer, na veertien jaar aan de macht te zijn geweest. Hij lag onder vuur sinds de presidentsverkiezingen van enkele weken geleden. Bolivianen gingen boos de straat op omdat ze vermoedden dat er fraude was gepleegd. Afgelopen weekend schaarden politieagenten en de legerleiding zich achter de demonstranten. Morales trad naar eigen zeggen af om een einde te maken aan het geweld in het land. Hij sprak van een “burgerstaatsgreep”.”

Let op de NOS heeft hetzelfde verhaal als verschillende grote Amerikaanse media, namelijk dat ye niet spreken van een staatsgreep, maar van een aftreden van Morales als president!

#NOS weleens gehoord van #regimechange in #Bolivia.

Democratisch gekozen pres. #Morales heeft in 13 jaar Bolivia tot welvarend land met veel minder ongelijkheid omgezet.
De VS was nooit blij met hem vandaar de coup.

Fox News noemt zijn regering een “full-blown dictatorship” — daarmee de Boliviaanse democratie onder zijn leiderschap ontkennend.

The New York Times presenteert Morales als een despoot hongerig naar macht die uiteindelijk zijn grip op de macht verliest, het is “het einde van de tirannie.”

CNN spreekt van de grote leugen van “verkiezingsfraude”.

Tot slot brengt de New York Times Anez naar voren, de zichzelf verklaarde en ongekozen nieuwe president van Bolivia, die de democratie komt herstellen.

Evo Morales, de inheemse president

In zijn twitter bericht schrijft de verjaagde president het volgende. “Dit was mijn eerste nacht na het verlaten van het presidentschap gedwongen door de staatsgreep van Mesa en Camacho met de hulp van de politie.

US Coup Plot to Oust Bolivia’s Evo Morales – Global Research

Trump

The late William Blum documented how Washington toppled numerous sovereign governments, assassinated legitimate leaders, and removed others by coup d’etats.

Along with endless wars of aggression and by other means against nations threatening no one, that’s what US hegemonic rage for unchallenged global dominance is all about.

Nations unwilling to subordinate their sovereign rights to US interests are on its target list for regime change.

Blum explained that US policies are “worse than (most people) imagine” or understand. They include virtually every form of lawlessness in pursuit of its geopolitical aims — notably aggression, economic terrorism, pressure, bullying, intimidation, and manipulating foreign elections.

When their outcomes elect or reelect the “wrong” leaders, they’re targeted for removal by foul means.

Evo Morales was and remain’s Bolivia’s first indigenous president since elected in December 2005, taking office in January 2006.

In October, he was reelected for the third time, defeating challengers Carlos Mesa and Chi Hyun Chung, his popular support topping theirs combined.

His victory margin over lead challenger Mesa exceeded 10% to avoid a runoff.

James Petras earlier explained that no president in Bolivian history “secured consecutive electoral victories (now four), and ruled democratically for such an extended period of time…with political stability” as Morales.

Calling him “the world’s most conservative radical…or the most radical conservative,” Petras explained that his domestic and foreign agendas combine “radical rhetoric and…orthodox economic policies,” adding:

“The most striking aspect of (his rule) is his rigor and consistency in upholding orthodox economic policies –right out of the handbook of the international financial organizations.”

His independence and anti-imperialist rhetoric made him a prime US target for removal.

Petras: He “launched a series of anti-imperialist manifestos against US intervention in Venezuela; repeatedly denounced the US blockade of Cuba; opposed the US backed military coup in Honduras’ and defended Argentina’s claim to the Malvinas (Falkland) Islands.”

He “joined the radical regional bloc, ALBA, initiated by President Chavez and supported ‘regional integration’ which excluded the US. He denounced the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) as a ‘neo-liberal project’.”

He “praised Edward Snowden and his revelations; denounced NSA spying and…denounc(ed) European collaboration with the US Empire.”

He achieved “an unprecedented decade of political and social stability and a growth rate between 4% and 6%” — 4.2% in 2018.

Bolivia: Leaked Audios Confirm Involvement of Opposition Leaders, Ex-Military and US in Coup Plans – Global Research

bolivia:-leaked-audios-confirm-involvement-of-opposition-leaders,-ex-military-and-us-in-coup-plans-–-global-research

The Radio Education Network of Bolivia (Erbol) leaked 16 audios involving opposition leaders who are calling for a coup d’etat against the government of President Evo Morales, a political action which would have been coordinated from the U.S. embassy in the Andean country.

Among those mentioned in the audios are the U.S. senators Marco Rubio, Bob Menendez and Ted Cruz, who have would maintained contact with the Bolivian opposition in order to achieve a possible regime change in the South American country.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

The audios also reveal participation in the political conspiracy of the former prefect of Cochabamba, Manfred Reyes Villa, who was accused of corruption in 2009 and fled Bolivia to seek asylum in the U.S., where he is currently living.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

In their conspiracy talks, Bolivian politicians also mention​​​​​​​ a former Bolivian president whose name is not explicitly mentioned, former New Republican Force lawmaker Mauricio Muñoz and former Army officers Oscar Pacello, Remberto Siles, Julio Maldonado and Teobaldo Cardozo.​​​​​​​

Alertas todos contra golpe de Estado en Bolivia, posible sabotaje al helicóptero que trasladaba a nuestro querido Evo, no es la primera vez que Presidentes progresistas mueren en “accidentes”. Protección para Evo,cuidemos a Evo.#SomosCuba. pic.twitter.com/YzVm41QcNA

“We must all be alert against the coup in Bolivia. Possible sabotage of the helicopter which transported our beloved Evo. It is not the first time that progressive presidents die in “accidents.” Protection for Evo. Let’s take care of Evo.”

The Erbol leaked information audios also mention calls from opposition leaders to burn government party structures and to put together a general strike across the country.

All these ​​​​​​​actions, which were expected to be advertised as based on social unrest​​​​​​​, would be part of the response to the triumph of Evo Morales in the last presidential elections​​​​​​​.

The opposition plans would also include an eventual attack against the Cuban Embassy, very similar to what happened in the coup against Venezuela’s late president Hugo Chavez in 2002.

So far, none of the opposition leaders in Bolivia has said anything about the leaked audios.​​​​​​​

Bolivia at Crossroads – Choosing Between Continued Success or Handover to US Hegemony | The Vineyard of the Saker

by Peter Koenig for The Saker Blog

“I don’t want to be the best President in the history of Bolivia, I want to be the President of the best Bolivia in history.” So proclaimed Evo Morales in a pre-election rally a few days before general elections, today, 20 October 2019. At the same time, Evo declared that ever since the Tribunal Constitucional Plurinacional (TCP – Plurinational Constitutional Tribunal) in November 2017 rejected an appeal by the opposition that he could run for a fourth term for President, and approved his candidacy for 20 October elections, US interference on a daily basis was rampant.

The United States has not stopped trying to change public opinion with false propaganda and making incredibly ludicrous promises to the population. For example, US Embassy people – maybe Fifth Columnists on US payroll, promised the population of the poor Yungas region of Bolivia, new and asphalted roads, if they didn’t support Evo Morales in the upcoming elections. There are also flagrant lies circulating, that Evo and his families had stolen hundreds of millions of dollars and deposited them in a secret account in the Bank of the Vatican. Similar lies as are being spread about Nicolas Maduro, the Castro family, North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, the leaders of Iran and Syria and many more, who oppose the dictate of Washington.

The Bolivian Minister of the Presidency, Juan Ramón Quintara, referring to the US attempts to sabotage the elections, mentioned a few days ago on a Bolivian public TV channel, “There is not one day the US is not interfering in Bolivian political internal affairs.” He added, warning his compatriots, “In the last 50 years the United States has put its dirty hand in the Bolivian electoral process. Today the interference is worse than ever. For this reason, brothers Bolivianos, be aware and don’t allow your vote being highjacked by foreign meddling.”

This is in total disrespect of international law, of international diplomacy and ethics. But what to expect from the only rogue state on our “Mother Earth”. Not to mention the flagrant, aberrant and hardly hidden corruption going on in the current and previous US governments for the last at least 100 years, and the Pentagon’s and White House’s constant interference in elections around the world.
