5 Fast Facts About the Military Coup in Bolivia and What You Can Do

At a United Nations Security Council meeting, Evo Morales explained:
“I would like to say to you, frankly and openly here, that in no way is the United States interested in upholding democracy. If such were the case it would not have financed coups d’etat and supported dictators. It would not have threatened with military intervention democratically elected governments as it has done with Venezuela. The United States could not care less about human rights or justice. If this were the case, it would have signed the international conventions and treaties that have protected human rights.It would not have threatened the investigation mechanism of the International Criminal Court, nor would it promote the use of torture, nor would it have walked away from the Human Rights Council. And nor would it have separated migrant children from their families, nor put them in cages.”
Morales went on to say, “Each time that the United States invades nations, launches missiles, or finances regime change, it does so behind a propaganda campaign which incessantly repeats the message that it is acting in the course of justice, freedom and democracy, in the cause of human rights or for humanitarian reasons.”

The Fed Is Lying To Us

Things are now serious. Here in late 2019, both the Federal Reserve and the ECB are now both easing again – or back to ‘fraudulent money printing’. A fraud is meant to deceive while removing something of value from one or more parties.
When printing money, the central banks say they are doing it to protect the economy, jobs and the financial system.
But what’s actually happening is that wealth is flowing like a raging river towards a select few individuals and corporations.
It’s critical to understand that the central banks cannot print up prosperity. All they can do, being redistributive organizations, is take purchasing power away from one side and hand it to another. So the key question to be asking now is: Who’s winning and who’s losing? Well, here in the US, we already know that it’s the tippy-top 0.1% that is doing almost all of the ‘winning.’ The next 0.9% are doing pretty well, too. But by the time we get just slightly below the top 10%, we run out of “winners”.

Death by Oligarchy

Chris Hedges:
Privilege does strange and unpleasant things to human beings. I saw these distortions among my rich classmates as a scholarship student at prep school and at Harvard University, an institution designed, like all elite schools, to perpetuate the plutocracy. Living in privilege spawns callousness, even cruelty, to those less fortunate and feeds a bottomless greed.
All our institutions—the press, the courts, legislative bodies, the executive branch and academia—have been perverted to serve the oligarch’s narrow, selfish interests while an oppressed citizenry, struggling to survive, is seething with mounting rage and frustration.
Oligarchs, freed from outside oversight and regulation, wantonly pillage the political and economic institutions that sustain them.
Greed is bottomless. It is the disease of the rich. All societies are plagued by social inequality, but when those on the bottom and in the middle of the social pyramid lose their voice and agency, when the society exists only to serve the greed of the rich, when income inequality reaches the levels it has reached in the United States, the social fabric is torn apart and the society destroys itself.

French Social Security: The Lies of the State (Fake News)

French minister of economy and finance Bruno Le Maire stated on TV that there is a deficit of 5,4 Billions Euro in Social Security(Secu) budget in 2019 and a deficit of 5,1 Billions Euro next year in Secu. In fact in 2019, Social Security or Secu has a surplus of 11 Billions Euro. Along with the pension fund (CSG) of 5 Billions Euro, so total of 16 Billions Euro was actually used to pay the debt caused by the financial crisis (bail out of bankers and others). The financial crisis of subprime mortgages loans in 2008 was not caused by the people but by the incompetence and greed of the bankers and financiers of the world. This is another type of transfer of wealth from the middle class and the poor to the super rich. This is social injustice, a lie and fraud done to French citizens and all other citizens living in France. In a fully functioning democracy, Bruno Le Maire, Macron and his cabinet should be brought to justice for lies, fraud and embezzlement of public funds or taxpayers' hard-working earned money.

Yellow Vest Movement Acte 50 Weeks of Protest that Main Stream Media Won’t Cover Anymore

The international mainstream media is not reporting the 50 weeks consecutive protests of the Yellow Vests (Gilets Jaunes) movement as if the movement has never existed or has died. But here you can see the movement is still alive after 50 weeks of protest and the movement will have its first year anniversary next month. Instead the mainstream media keep reporting about the protest in Hongkong which is propped up by the West (US,UK) because the protest is against the West's enemy which is China. But the protests worldwide in France, Indonesia, Spain, Iraq, Lebanon, Egypt, Chili, Ecuador against the "establishment" are being ignored because they don't suit the establishment (The West)'s agenda.
