Opinion: USAID should end the OTI programme

USAID support for destabilization is no secret to the targeted governments(Dan Beeton – ‘ USAID Subversion in Latin America Not Limited to Cuba’ 04.04.2014).

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) needs to revaluate the Office of Transition Initiatives (OTI) and their role in interference across the globe. The USAID which is directed by the Secretary of State and gives the policy guidance to the organization. The USAID is supposed to be about “development” and “American Generosity” since 1961. The U.S. Organization in-charge of all foreign civilian aid. That sounds all well, right?

However, the OTI Office is what is questionable. As that is not offering humanitarian assistance, aid or programs of development. No, that is an office and agency for “transition” and change of power. Where the USAID are not coming to aid or develop but to change the leadership of a given country. Where the US incites and even participate in coup d’etat’s to get their wanted leader or head of state.

The USAID have been meddling in Latin America, where the OTI offices has interfered in several countries. WikiLeaks leaked a “internal memo” in 2013 detailing the plan to undermine the Chavez regime in Venezuela. This has also been done in Bolivia and Ecuador. The USAID used the agency as a tool to get their puppets in the respective countries.

The USAID should be looked as an honest actor, but that ship has sailed. They are a tool in the machinery of the State Department and the U.S. interests across the globe. The OTI was created in 1994 and worked to do this things all these years.

When the Bolivian President Evo Morales expelled and shutdown USAID in his country last year for alleged attempts to undermine his leftist government, he wasn’t being paranoid after all. As a recent expose by the Associated Press shows USAID’s so-called “democracy promotion programmes” are designed to foment dissent against governments unfriendly to Washington. “In a number of countries, including Venezuela and Bolivia, USAID is acting more as an agency involved in covert action, like the CIA, than as an aid or development agency,” asserted Mark Weisbrot, an economist with a Washington-based think tank, the Centre for Economic and Policy Research” (Linda S. Heard – ‘Beware of aid agencies bearing gifts’ 21.04.2014, Gulf News).

If the USAID wants to be pawn and a useful tool for the State Department and the Pentagon. Than they can use the OTI programme. However, then they are not a directly NGO or a Aid Organization. No, it is then a part of the state machinery to other objectives. Not to fix or develop the nations it is in. Neither is to bring people out of poverty. No, then its about getting American interests and doing the bidding of the CIA. That’s another ball-game than doing aid or humanitarian assistance. To change leaders and incite uprisings for political change. That is not the work of a humanitarian organization.

Unless, USAID wants to be an imperial relic and a warning signs across the world. That if the USAID comes knocking on your doors. They are not coming with bread and water to the ones seeking refugee away from home after living in conflict zones. The OTI is changing the leadership and using various of means to inspire it to happen. To make ensure the Americans have their leaders and not the ones who works against the U.S. interests. This is why the OTI exists and certainly final objective.

If the USAID wants to look like and smell like a humanitarian organization. They better act like one and not be covert operation for the CIA. Because, the OTI is masking that and using the “legitimacy” of USAID to enforce the missions of CIA in any given territory, which is imperialism at its best. Peace.

Bolivia: Añez needs to answer for her crimes

That United States Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is speaking of Democracy and speaking of due diligence in concern with the Bolivian criminal case of interim and former President Jeanine Añez. She is now behind bars and awaiting trial. Which is surely deserved and her associates should be charged as well. Añez didn’t work alone, but in tandem with the military and foreign backers. These should all answer for their involvement in the coup d’etat and what they did after it.

The ones supporting “Operation Condor” who was in the White House, Central Intelligience Agency (CIA), Organization of American States (OAS) and others who supported the 10th November 2019 Coup d’etat against the Socialist MAS-IPSP and President Evo Morales. That was evident and they really intended to install their own leaders and representatives.

At this point of time. I have little to no sympathy for Añez. It doesn’t help that the Secretary of State Blinken is asking for fair treatment and care after days behind bars. In the same manner wasn’t showed to MAS-IPSP or Morales after November 2019. Not that MAS-ISPS should avenge or take revenge. They should show not only resilience, but legal procedures.

Not what Añez regime showed them, which was this:

During the entire day of November 11, the coup plotters have threatened the lives of our leaders Evo and Álvaro, first with public threats from the police to proceed with operations to apprehend them, then with the closure of our air space, preventing the entry of the Mexican plane that came to receive them with administrative obstacles by the Bolivian Air Force. The Bolivian people are living through terrible moments, as police officers and motorcyclists storm the streets and the military high command deciding to attack the citizens as a means of pacification, including preventing prominent people, religious leaders and political leaders from finding constitutional and democratic solutions to the crisis we are facing” (MAS-IPSP – ‘Communiqué of the Movement to Socialism (MAS-IPSP), 12.11.2019).

Amnesty Reported this:

The Bolivian authorities must immediately repeal Decree 4078 of 14 November 2019 and ensure that the security forces act in accordance with international rules and standards on the use of force and protect the human rights of all protesters irrespective of their political opinions, Amnesty International said today” (…) “In this context, the authorities must guarantee access to public, accurate and up-to-date information about people who have been killed, wounded or deprived of their freedom during the crisis that began on 20 October of this year. According to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, 23 people have died and 715 have been injured since that date” (Amnesty, 2019).

So, if people calls for justice and rule of law. Añez and her fellow associates should answer for the sins they committed in power. They took power and ruled with fierce force. These lives and injuries needs to be held accounted for. Just because she was interim-president it shouldn’t save her from possible charges or criminal prosecution.

Añez deserves a criminal trial. However, I will not feel pity for her. She has made her bed and now she got to sleep in it. Añez got powerful help of imperialists and others to take power without being elected. She was neither popular nor the righteous leader. If that was true. Then the next election held last year. MAS-IPSP wouldn’t win that easily and beat her in the polls.

That is why the whole coup d’etat plotters needs to be court-side. Añez is the ring-leader and the head. Nevertheless, she isn’t a victim, but the ones who fell and became fatalities for her reign. Needs to relieved and gotten justice for. The fatalities and the ones who lost everything because of her should get their answers. Añez shouldn’t be above the law or not answer to it. That is not fair or just. She knew what she was doing and she enjoyed the sudden change in her regard.

What Añez shouldn’t get is a Kangaroo Court and a mocking charade of a trial. However, there is hopefully enough witnesses and proof to sentence her. When people like her rise to power. They act like they are above everyone else. That they are Teflon and nothing can touch them. Nevertheless, it couldn’t be further from the truth. Peace.

Opinion: Imperialism lost in Bolivia [and MAS-IPSP returns to power]

The successful coup of November 2019 have now been restored. The Operation Condor of Bolivia has now been answered. The coup makers and the ones supporting it has lost. The party which was dethroned and taken out of power by force. Has now returned close to a year after winning the election yesterday.

The party of the ousted President Evo Morales, MAS-IPSP, the Movement for Socialism has returned. This must be a big blow for the ones supporting the coup and market liberalism they wanted to bring to the Republic.

The ones wanting favourable deals for the lithium mines for the batteries to electric cars. This is why people are mocking Elon Musk on social media today. As his generous deals with the mining industry. This is why the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) together with other partners collaborated and made it happen last year.

Now, its proven that it was a short term win and the ones ruling wasn’t popular, but an imposed regime. They toppled a popular government, which is initially returning. Now, the former Finance Minister of Morales, Luis Arce has won it.

That shows that you cannot change the reality on the ground. This wasn’t a popular uprising or the will of the people to bring down Morales. No, it was a imperialistic move to overturn the will of the people. So, that the imperialist could earn fortunes on the mineral wealth of Bolivia.

The regime of Jeanine Añez, who got the police and army behind her. However, she apparently never got the public behind her. As she was with right-wing and fascist. These have now lost. As this regime should answer for the 37 people it killed.

What can happen now is that the imposed government from the U.S. can leave Bolivia. They who made the MAS-IPSP and their allies suffer. The ones who sent Morales into exile. That is the sort of acts Anez did and she has to answer too.

MAS-IPSP resigned on the spot and left their positions as the coup happened. Today is the day that the Republic has returned to the public. Their will is respected and not supported by military. It is a government by the people and for the people. Therefore, the future is brighter for Bolivia.

The ones supporting imperialism lost, the ones that only see the vision of Washington D.C., but Bolivia isn’t mirrored by the White House, but it’s mirrored by the citizens of Bolivia. Peace.

Trump-Ukraine: Articles of Impeachment and will the Senate backstab the President?

There was just a matter of time, as the House of Representatives and the majority Committees would collectively go together and make a resolution to vote over the Impeachment of President Donald J. Trump. This after his own actions in office, as the Head of State and the Executive of State.

He is trying to deflect the facts and call it names, but reality is this. The President tried together with all of his handlers to get dirt and shade his political opponent Joe Biden, by making a fraudulent agreement with Ukrainian counterparts and if it didn’t get followed the military aid didn’t come their way.

The Articles against the President is very simple, but straight to the fact. That the President did misuse power or abuse it. He tried to get a foreign power to interfere in the elections of 2020. To investigate the son of Biden. That is what the President did. That is abuse of power and misuse of power in office, using the aid of the state to get a favourable case abroad.

The Second article is the obstruction of Congress. Which at this point is fact. As his administration haven’t answered any of the subpoenas nor calls to testify of people associated with President. Even the ones who been fired has not testified. Family members of the President has also declined to answer the subpoenas and answer the committees.

That has been done by withholding documents or production of it. Defying all subpoenas and refused to produce a single document or record. Directing the Executive Branch not to cooperate nor defying to testify. There are nine persons who have not cooperated from the Executive Branch alone.

While the President has decided that he should decide the scope, the levels of inquire and ability to investigate him. That he has the “executive privilege” and the “sole Power of Impeachment”. With the stopping of documents, lack of cooperation is all a proof the obstruction of justice. As the Congress couldn’t prevail or even manage to get everything. Since, the Executive Branch has been so reluctant to do their duty.

Trump has clearly not followed the memo or should we at this point call his Constitutional rights as a citizen and as a President. He has done whatever he can shelve and stop the Congress from questioning him and his team. While having yes men, whose also involved in the shady business of the President, the likes of Devin Nunes. Who just have an ability to be with the characters of the Executive Branch and ilk who deter to breach the law. That is why the President needs to be tried and answer for his action.

There are several around Rudy Giuliani the attorney of the President whose entangled and in trouble over the same Ukraine Scandal. Which is showing the remorse and the reality on the ground. As the White House is spreading all sort of fiction to pass. Hoping all these conspiracy theories will stick.

While this will most likely pass in the House of Representatives, it will be blocked and silenced in the Senate. As the Republicans cannot go against their master, the likes of Lindsay Graham is unbound in his loyalty to the kingpin on top. His whole fate and life depends on the Donald. That is how it seems.

We will see if the crook will win or not. The House have done their part. They have been able, even in the hardest of hurdles to make a report. To prove what Trump in regards to Ukraine. Now it is just a matter of time. What results it will give and how it will sway the public opinion.

The articles are well-crafted, just like the majority report shows the intent and the essence of the whole ordeal. It is just is if the Senate will betray the Constitution or if they will stab Donald in the back. Which I doubt, because at this point. None of the GOP or Republican Senators seems interested in walking over trouble waters without kissing the ring of Trump. Peace.
