  • Disinfo   Kelly Thomas   3 weeks 5 days ago

    This article was written by an academic, not someone who actually lives in Nicaragua. It is pure BS and I feel it should be removed as a news link for WRH.

    Obviously I wouldn't be a WRH member since the stone age (I remember the flack when Mike changed the site to this format) and i live in Nicaragua because I couldn't tolerate another 4 years of George Bush in 2004. I am well versed in every type of conspiracy theory, particularly the Iran-Contra.

    Daniel Ortega blamed US intelligence agencies for the protests and it appears that the author got his talking points from Dictator Ortega.

    It blames youthful protestors for the violence, but there is no mention of the Jovenes Sandinistas - Ortega's gang members whom he released from jail to participate in the protests. His JS crew were the ones looting the stores. Student protestors stood in front of stores chanting, "No robo!" because they didn't want their movement associated with the Orteguistas. I posted video on my FB page of Nicaraguans returning items to looted stores stolen by their neighbours and the JS. There is a video of a youth grabbing a stolen TV from a thief, smashing it on the ground so the thief couldn't enjoy his stolen goods.

    INSS was s tipping point. The article fails to mention that between employee-employer contributions to the Social Security system, we were already paying close to a 25% combined payroll tax. Every young person knows they will never get a cent from these mandatory pension taxes because the account is near empty, looted by Ortega and his Election Chief Roberto Rivas, whose brother conveniently has a US passport (and I am sure Rivas does, too). A man who manages an election every five years yet receives an annual salary of $60K has multiple million dollar masons, a jet, a plane, three luxury vehicles in Costa Rica and a olio dollar house there or he did until he got caught faking diplomatic status to avoid his CR taxes). The US seized Rivas's plane, jet and US assets several months ago, which explains the new Madrid-Managua route to his $15 million house in Madrid. Rivas is persona non grata in the US and can no longer fly out of CR, so he needed new route for his trips to Spain. hen he is in Nicaragua, he travels with at least ten vehicles for "Security". His ons have private body guards, too. We are a country of less than 6 million people where everyone gets on a bus wth a machete. The government pays his light bills on his vacation mansions in the town where I loved, paid for the house sandlots, pays for food (he sighs almost 40 pounds) and pretty much his entire extravagant lifestyle.

    That none of this points are made in the linked article indicates it is propaganda.

    This was a spontaneous protest. It turned into a potential revolution when Ortega demanded the police fire at protestors. They kidnapped university students, holding them hostage for days. More than 30 dead. The US is 58 times larger in population that the US. 35 plus dead, dozens more injured critically, and fifty unaccounted for. People from all parties participated in the protests, including Sandinistas who have had enough of the human rights abuses. We have had a g good economy for many years thanks to tourism and foreign investment, but there is nothing left because Ortega and his goons stole it.

    While the US may have a Shock Doctrine plan in the wings, it will be very difficult to implement. People want a radical change, full transparency and no more debt.

    The US may be worried because Ortega has squirrelled away all foreign aid and assistance into a private company managed by his family. The riots broke out when it was discovered INSS was insolvent, despite massive increase in taxes each year. Now Venezuela is desperate to have their loans repaid, which is where the INSS money went. Under Nicaraguan law, Ortega does not have to reveal his financials behind ALBANISA, his money laundering company. Technically, because the loans did not go through the treasury but through ALBANISA, Nicaraguans are not on the hook for aid or any other loan that was not governed by the Treasury. That would make the IMF very worried and ugh of their contract invalid.

    The IMF created the policies that caused the protest. Last month the World Bankorganized a $100 million loan package to improve five border crossings, but we all know it is just tax, as the border crossings do not generate goods, just mandatory taxes to cross and there is no way anyone occult spend even $20 million per border crossing. There isn't demand.

    We have reached a tipping point Tehre is no going back. the first lady/vice president had her ego handed to g=her in a cardboard box. She was so out of touch that she didn't understand the hatred of the population against her Imelda Marcos excesses.

    I could say a lot more, but I doubt more than a few peel will even read the article, let alone my comment. Still, it should not be considered factual.

  • The Embassy staff are a bunch   Kelly Thomas   3 weeks 6 days ago

    The Embassy staff are a bunch pf pussies. They have a big fat embassy the should hole up in. It's not like they actually do much with all of that space. There was no threat to foreigners or tourist. This is Nicaraguans trying to get rid of a tyrant. The police killed more than 30 people. ^0 plus several injured inter hospital, and 50 protestors have disappeared.

    Yesterday 1,000,000 Nicaraguans - almost 20% of the country - had peace marches. No violence.

    The Sandinista Youths that Ortega uses for protest activities noted the mall. There is video of Nicaraguan protestor returning stolen loot to the stores. Have you ever seen reverse looting? The people are incredible.

    This was a spontaneous demonstration. Ortega's response with violence caused it to explode. The people will not allow more violent thugs to rule them.

    We are hoping that the Nicaraguan protestors find new leaders who will not divide the country anymore I I's a small country No one wants war. No one wants poverty. The population is deeply enmeshed with foreigners, be it investments, tourists or family members with residency abroad. There isn't an anti-gringo element to exploit.

    We hope that the US does;t have their Shock Doctrine team on hand, but the new demand is full transparency in government, so whatever happens will be a step up from the present.

    This is something the leaders should have thought of 20-30 years ago. The Golden State had become tarnished over the years because of too much pandering to illegals at the expense of tax-paying Americans. A lot of people have moved out taking their money with them, and it's that loss of revenue that hurts.

    Before you go handing further sanctions for alleged wrong doing on Russia part, let the whole world see your evidence. We have been down this road before and at the end of the road it turns out that you have a huge nothing burger. Before you go risking our lives and our children s you better have solid evidence.

  • Good!   Ethan Allen and...   4 weeks 1 day ago

    A large standing military is the greatest threat to freedom.
    The Pentagon pigs are draining America dry and have destroyed our reputation overseas and at home. But not to worry Trump loves the US military almost as much as he loves his boss Israel. Trump especially loves to whore US troops out to his boss Israel.
