In a rare window into reality published by the establishment press, an explosive interview with a former U.S. ambassador appearing in the Miami Herald offered further confirmation of the largely behind-the-scenes machinations of a powerful network of socialist and communist forces working to foist tyranny on the peoples of Latin America. In contrast with the popular narrative of Brazil’s ruling political class as a “moderate” force, the ex-official also touched on the key role played by Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff of the Workers’ Party (PT) in the ongoing takeover of the region by a totalitarian-minded cabal.
The infamous global government-promoting Council on Foreign Relations is under fire again after its director of Latin American studies, Julia Sweig, was exposed thanking convicted terrorists in her book, calling for more brazen attacks on the Second Amendment, and having myriad close associations with Castro’s brutal communist dictatorship ruling over Cuba. Some prominent analysts and even a former military official charged with tracking Cuban-regime spies have suggested that Sweig is actually an “agent of influence” for the autocracy in Havana. The implications are enormous.
Chileans observe their own anniversary on September 11, as today marks the 40th anniversary of the military coup that removed the revolutionary Marxist President Salvador Allende from office and replaced him with General Augusto Pinochet.
The Rio de Janeiro, Brazil-based newspaper O Globo reported on July 9 that former NSA contractor and whistleblower Edward Snowden had provided it with documents showing that the United States has been accumulating data on telephone calls and e-mails from several countries in Latin America, including Brazil, Colombia, and Mexico.
South American leaders invited to attend a special summit in the Bolivian city of Cochabamba released a joint statement on July 4 demanding an explanation and an apology from the governments of France, Italy, Portugal, and Spain, after the nations closed their airspace to the plane carrying Bolivia’s President Evo Morales two days earlier. Officials in the four nations had suspected that NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden was on board Morales’ plane.
Estimates suggest over a million Brazilians — outraged about everything from high taxes and government corruption to the wasting of taxpayer money on sports tournaments — participated in massive nationwide protests over the last week. The wave of demonstrations, some of which became violent, were supposedly triggered by a small fare increase for public transportation that boiled over into general unrest about a wide range of other issues related to government. Some well-informed analysts, however, say there is more to the apparent uprising than meets the eye.
The usual Hollywood celebrities and Democratic Congressmen joined Jesse Jackson, Cuba's Raul Castro and Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in eulogizing deceased Marxist dictator Hugo Chávez.
After helping to destroy the once relatively prosperous economy of Venezuela, socialist strongman Hugo Chávez died of cancer on Tuesday at 58, with some of his allies and subordinates insisting that the tyrannical leader was actually murdered by some sort of secret U.S. “cancer” weapon. With the passing of Chávez, more than a few analysts are already heralding the death of socialism in Latin America. Despite the loss of one of their most outspoken and visible leaders, however, the statist forces quietly seizing control of the region will continue to march onward.
The transformation of Latin America into a communist region received a boost from the recent reelection of President of Ecuador Rafael Correa, a leader in the São Paulo Forum, a revolutionary Marxist alliance.
In an ironic but predictable development that has establishment analysts scratching their heads and human-rights organizations up in arms, brutal communist dictator Raul Castro of Cuba just assumed the rotating presidency of a regional “integration” body that touts itself as being in favor of “democracy.” Upon assuming his new role, the Marxist tyrant, who leads one of the most oppressive regimes in the world and will now be charged with running the supranational CELAC bloc, celebrated what he called "a common vision for the Latin American and Caribbean homeland.”
