Massive Protests in Bolivia Condemning Government Takeover

A week of unrest in Bolivia has seen the military take over after one president’s resignation, and a new president declaring herself to be in charge despite not having anywhere near the votes to assume the post. The week ends with large protests.

Thousands are taking to the streets in all of the major cities of Bolivia, criticizing the military coup and demanding the resignation of the interim president. Large numbers of protesters are from the country’s indigenous people, who are condemning the new president as racist for her previous comments that indigenous people don’t belong in the cities.

Anger at interim president Anez was also directed at Bolivian security forces, particularly the police who have been stopping protests in recent days, and who have assisted Anez’s takeover by blocking marches on parliament.

One Bolivian hospital director in Sacaba reported at least five protesters killed and 75 injured. Most casualties are reportedly the result of gunfire

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The real trajectory of this coup, will be seen in terms of how securely Anez has control of the military; if she loses that, all bets are off.

The zionist Delusional Mentality: Exposed

Most zionists don't believe that God exists,but they do believe he promised them Palestine. Ilan Pappe

It is needless to say that historically the Canaanites, Jebosites (of Jerusalem), the Hittits (of Hebron); the Amorites of Schem, and the rest of the seven nation-tribes are the original inhabitants of Palestine who dwelled this land for thousands upon thousands of years before the old jewish invasion. It is needless to say that the natives of Palestine are those who built the ancient cities (towns) of Palestine like Jerusalem, Hebron, Jericho, Schem/Nablus and the rest of the Palestinian-Canaanites twons and villages.

The Democrats Have the Country on a Slippery Slope

The fake “whistleblower’s name— Eric Ciamerella—has been known for a long time, but not officially. Now it is official. Senator Rand Paul has officially released his name. Funny, isn’t it, that only the Republicans want Ciamerella to testify. The Democrats won’t hear of it. See this.

If the American people are paying attention, the Democrats are in trouble. When Russiagate fizzled out on them, Adam Schiff (D,CA) orchestrated a fake “whistleblower” whom the Democrats cannot risk putting on the stand to testify. The Democrats’ focus shifted to sleazy State Department types who could offer nothing but second or third hand hearsay followed by a hearsay second telephone call that cannot be confirmed.

Adam Shifty Schiff handler EXPOSED (Soros) Profile picture for user globalintelhub

This won't come as much of a shock to most of tuned in readers of ZH, but until now it seems no one has been digging into the WHYs of Adam Schiff, a guy whose friends include Ed Buck, suspected of murder and drug overdosing homeless bums in the West Hollywood district Schiff calls home (most importantly, why was Adam at this drug den more than 15 times??). With such a case pending against you, as to why this Ed Buck was your friend and major political donor, it would be baffling why Schiff is so brazen with his public lies, aggressive "Fact-less" attacks on innocent President Donald Trump.

Full Scale F-35 Production Further Delayed: Fighter Suffers More Breakdowns Than Expected - Pentagon

The F-35 fifth generation single engine fighter has faced further delays in its entry into frontline service after the Pentagon denied Lockheed Martin permission to begin full scale production of the jet. While the F-35A and B variants entered service in 2015 and 2014 respectively, they are considered far from fully combat ready with several bugs in the design having yet to be fixed among other major issues. The Pentagon’s leading weapons tester Robert Behler noted that the F-35 was still far from fully combat ready, particularly highlighting the fact that all variants of the platform suffered from low reliability and were prone to breakdowns more often than previously anticipated.

The Origins of the Thought Police — and Why They Scare Us

By Jon Miltimore

There are a lot of unpleasant things in George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984. Spying screens. Torture and propaganda. Victory Gin and Victory Coffee always sounded particularly dreadful. And there is Winston Smith’s varicose ulcer, apparently a symbol of his humanity (or something), which always seems to be “throbbing.” Gross.

None of this sounds very enjoyable, but it’s not the worst thing in 1984. To me, the most terrifying part was that you couldn’t keep Big Brother out of your head.

Unlike other 20th-century totalitarians, the authoritarians in 1984 aren’t that interested in controlling behavior or speech. They do, of course, but it’s only as a means to an end. Their real goal is to control the gray matter between the ears...

Michael Bloomberg funded occupation infrastructure

Many people troubled by the lack of Palestinian freedom grew up with stories of courage.

Throwing off the might of the British empire took courage.

Overcoming Jim Crow segregationists took courage.

Defeating white supremacists in apartheid South Africa took courage.

Shaking off the Israeli occupation has and will take courage.

But saying the occupation is wrong from the far shores of New York City and Washington, DC should take very little courage.

Democratic Donor And 'Dangerous Sexual Predator' Ed Buck Arrested After Third Man Overdoses In LA Apartment

Democratic political activist and noted donor Ed Buck was arrested Tuesday night at his West Hollywood apartment where two men died of meth overdoses and a third, 37-year-old man, overdosed last week. The arrest came hours after President Trump was in the area for a fundraising blitz.

President Xi Warns "Stopping The Storm And Restoring Order" In Hong Kong Is China's Top Priority

pdate 2: Pretty soon, all of the students working to transform their campuses into fortresses against the Hong Kong police might be facing an even more formidable foe: The People's Liberation Army.

Foreshadowing the possibility that the Hong Kong protest movement could end with a Tiananmen Square-like mass-casualty incident - at least that's what we gleaned from remarks made by President Xi at the BRIC leaders summit in Brasilia.

According to a post on Weibo (China's answer to Twitter), Xi told his fellow BRIC leaders that stabilizing Hong Kong had become a serious challenge, and warned that "stopping the storm and restoring order" is a "most urgent task".

Here's a translation of the Weibo post, describing Xi's remarks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But the bigger question has to be, will a massive crackdown end the demonstrations?!?

I frankly, am not sure they will.

It appears that even though these demonstrators have been met with live fire; teargas, and worse, there appears to be a "toughening up moment" happening right now, when they just don't seem to care about the possibility that the crossfire could actually kill them.

And if this happens, what President Xi's troops of the Liberation Army may be able to accomplish, other than killing a lot of people, will be very limited in scope, in terms of ratcheting the violence down.

I wouldn't want to be in that man's shoes right now for anything; if his efforts fail, he will "lose face", both at home and abroad, and his vision for the Belt/Road project, may well vanish along with his Presidency.

He cannot be seen as having "made a bad move here", either by Hong Kong residents; Chinese citizens;, or the international community.

He knows, without any doubt, that any wrong read or judgement of the demonstrators, will have the 24/7 cable cycle grinding him up, and spitting him out.

"No, No, You Guys; This US-Backed Military Coup Is Perfectly Legitimate!"

Authored by Caitlin Johnstone via Medium.com,

I just keep tripping on how dumb this latest US-backed military coup is. It’s in Bolivia in case you’ve lost track, which would be perfectly understandable since US-backed coups have become kind of like US mass shootings — there’s so many of them they’re starting to blend into each other.

I mean, for starters the justifications for this one are so cartoonishly reachy and desperate it boggles the mind a bit. The main argument you’ll see in favor of the coup is that Evo Morales was elected after Bolivia’s high court ruled that he could run for a fourth term, but the (democratically elected) court ruled against a 2016 referendum on presidential term limits.

That’s it. That weird, pedantic appeal to a particular interpretation of bureaucratic technicalities is the whole entire argument in support of a literal military coup backed by the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh) So what does this little country have, for which international (and US) businesses hunger for so mightily, that put it in the calendar for regime change in November of 2019?!?

Here, in a word, is what happened; and that word is "lithium."

The Grayzone has published an article documenting this coup’s many ties to Washington. Put it all together, and you’ve got a US-backed military coup

The story goes on to state: "The overthrow of the elected leader cannot be understood without a glance at the nation's massive reserves of this crucial mineral."

by Vijay Prashad

"Bolivia’s key reserves are in lithium, which is essential for the electric car. Bolivia claims to have 70 percent of the world’s lithium reserves, mostly in the Salar de Uyuni salt flats. The complexity of the mining and processing has meant that Bolivia has not been able to develop the lithium industry on its own. It requires capital, and it requires expertise."

Tesla (United States) and Pure Energy Minerals (Canada) both showed great interest in having a direct stake in Bolivian lithium. But they could not make a deal that would take into consideration the parameters set by the Morales government. Morales himself was a direct impediment to the takeover of the lithium fields by the non-Chinese transnational firms. He had to go.

After the coup, Tesla’s stock rose astronomically."

Here's The Moment Erdogan's White House Visit Took "A Dark Turn"

It was clear in yesterday's press briefing during President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's visit to the White House, where he didn't actually receive much push back from either President Trump or the press (at one point Trump requested that only a "friendly" reporter from Turkey ask questions of Erdogan), that the touchy subject of Turkey's acquirement of Russia's S-400 anti-air system was front and center in closed door conversations.

But Erdogan appeared unmoved by whatever pressure he may have faced in the Oval, given he later told reporters while standing next to the US president that Turkey cannot possibly discard the S-400 due to its strategic ties wit Russia, but he also added, “I’ve told Mr. Trump that we’re ready to buy Patriots.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is painfully obvious, that Erdogan has begun a slow, but unmistakable, pivot toward Russia, in both in its economic choices, and the weaponry it chooses to use with which to defend Turkey.

Paul Craig Roberts Rages At The Latest 'False' Trump Impeachment News

As the media are all out to get Trump, there is no way to get any valid information about the so-called impeachment. But you don’t have to pay too much attention to notice that the Democrats and the presstitutes are constantly changing the focus. The alleged whistleblower, who only had hearsay information, if that, has dropped out of the picture, being too compromised by his affiliations and prior meetings with Adam Schiff during which the “whistleblowing” was planned as an attack on Trump.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is one of the sorriest, most nasty, vile display of purely partisan politics I have ever seen in my life; and at 70, I have seen more than a few of these incidents.

Leaked Bank Records Confirm Burisma-Biden Payments To Morgan Stanley Account

Documents allegedly leaked by the Ukrainian General Prosecutor's office to CD Media have shed light on payments from Burisma Holdings to Rosemont Seneca Bohai LLC, a corporation controlled by Hunter Biden partner (and fellow former Burisma board member) Devon Archer.

Archer was Yale roommates with John Kerry's stepson Chris Heinz - the two of whom opened investment firm Rosemont Capital with Joe Biden's son, Hunter. Rosemont Capital is the parent company of Rosemont Seneca Partners, LLC - the entity which receive the Burisma payments and in turn aid Biden.

The newly leaked records show 45 payments between November 2014 and November 2015 totaling $3.5 million, mostly in increments of $83,333.33. The payments correspond to Morgan Stanley bank records the New York Times reported on earlier this year. The records were submitted as evidence in a case against Archer who was convicted in a scheme to defraud pension funds and an Indian tribe of tens of millions of dollars.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BADA BING, BADA BOOM, BADA BING!!!

IS this what his dad, Joe Biden, means when he says his son Hunter "did nothing wrong"?!?

Apparently, Father and Son have both had their consciences surgically removed, to believe that this represents "doing nothing wrong, followed by Biden's threat/attempt to shake the Ukrainian government down, if the government didn't fire the prosecutor looking into Burisma.

The Birth of the Deep State: A History

By Peter C. Earle

Every presidential administration finds some degree of internal resistance. That which has confronted the Trump Administration, however, seems to be the most active and aggressive ever. From “Anonymous”, to a record number of leakers, to physically hiding documents from the President, a large and active bureaucratic resistance is at work to stymie many of the Executive branch’s goals. Everything from secret military plans to embarrassing aspects of daily life in White House has been made public.

Indeed, the deep state (as the President and his defenders brand it) has been relentless. Nor is this purely partisan. The same deep state which is dogging Trump also prevented Obama from closing the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

But where did the American deep state come from? Has it always been there?...

Mayor Wants Ban On Public Surveillance Lifted, Claims It Limits Ability To Fight Crime

By MassPrivateI

What should be headline news across the country is relegated to a single local newspaper fighting back against illegal government surveillance.

Over the past two years, Memphis, Tennessee Mayor Jim Strickland and the Memphis Police Department have claimed that a 1978 consent decree barring them from conducting political surveillance limits their ability to fight crime...

500+ COMBAT ROBOTS SET TO STRENGTHEN INDIAN ARMY DEFENSES IN KASHMIR – MEDIA

SOURCE: RT
The Indian Army will soon reinforce its strength in Kashmir with hundreds of combat robots capable of lobbing grenades, overcoming obstacles, and carrying out search-and-rescue raids, local media report.
The Defense Ministry is looking for around 550 “robotic surveillance units,” each with a 25-year lifespan, according to Indian media, citing military sources. “These robots should be capable enough for water fording with minimum 20 cm depth,” an unnamed officer told Livemint.

Once acquired, the robots will be sent to the Rashtriya Rifles, the Indian Army’s counter-insurgency force. The unit will use them in built-up areas to gather intelligence on terrorists’ movements.

Aside from collecting imagery intelligence, the unmanned vehicles will be armed and capable of firing “suitable munitions at the intended target, for example, throwing grenade at places where the terrorists are holed up,” the source explained.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What could possibly go wrong with these robots, other than the cold, hard
reality that they have no morality to tell them whether they are aiming at a bad guy, or attempting to shoot an infant out of its mother's arms?!?

I very much fear, that these robots will become instruments of mass genocide against every possible Muslim Kashmiri, and Pakistani non-combatant possible; children; women; infants; and the medically fragile elderly.

(Sigh) I have no magic wand to wave at this situation; I can only hope (and pray) that the "adults in the room" of global geopolitics (and guys, you know who you are), start working the phones like crazy between Islamabad and New Dehli, and attempting to ratchet the tension here down.

Because if a calming of tensions does not happen, we are looking, potentially, at a full-scale hot war, between two nuclear armed adversaries.

Schwarzenegger meets real life cyborg sent back in time to kill off humanity

Terminator actor Arnold Schwarzenegger had the opportunity recently to meet a real life cyborg sent back in time to kill off humanity, Greta Thunberg. The actor and former governor of California felt privileged for the once in a lifetime meeting.

“It was a pleasure to meet with such a hero,” Schwarzenegger said. “I only just met Greta but I feel like I know her so well since I played a similar role in the Terminator films.”

Rand Paul Drops The 'C'-Word: Names Whistleblower, Demands Testimony

A week ago, Senator Rand Paul said that he might release the whistleblower's name.

Over the weekend, Senator Paul said the whistleblower's name should be released.

And today, Senator Paul has named the whistleblower publicly...Eric Ciamerella.

During a Wednesday interview on Washington, D.C.-based WMAL, Paul named Ciaramella himself and said he should be brought in testify to clarify whether he is indeed the whistleblower.

“I think Eric Ciaramella needs to be pulled in for testimony, and then I think it will be ultimately determined at that point,” said Paul.

“But I think he is a person of interest in the sense that he was at the Ukraine desk when Joe Biden was there when Hunter Biden was working for the Ukrainian oligarch. So simply for that alone, I think he’s a material witness who needs to be brought in.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This just keeps getting better and better.
