‘Bolivia’s President of the Senate, Adriana Salvatierra, announces her resignation. She was suppossed to assume the presidency after Evo Morales and Alvaro Garcia Linera were forced to resigned earlier Sunday afternoon.’

on later edit:

on later edit: given all the MAS resignations, who will ‘run’ the govt. of Bolivia?   (h/t Mr. wd):

And yes, I weep for Evo and the people of Bolivia, and denounce this Imperial CIA color revolution.

  1. Bad news. And as you say, basically instigated and conducted by the US government and subsidiaries. Shows again what we’re up against.

    • i’m just blown away by the implications, so it’s hard to order my thoughts. in random order: yes, the leaked phone calls by the usual elected suspects in florida (rubio, with carlos mesa’s golpista henchmen, the quotes from his party that they actually would go full-tilt coup against morales if he ‘won’ the election, etc.

      but one connection i hadn’t made was from this point forward: ‘and now they’re coming after eco-socialist evo morales’ September 26, 2019

      see, it was evo who burned down the amazonian rainforest (yes, i’d included rebuttal), not jair bolsonaro, who actually was, but this is cordelier’s pinned tweet:

      and this was on offer as well:

      and of course the OAS vote recounting is a joke, given the US owns the organization, causing this tweet to be Truth Hiding in Plain Sight:

      never mind (h/t b at MoA) this from cepr:

      anyhoo, AMLO offered evo sanctuary, i wouldn’t truse him as far as i could toss him, given his sucking up alliances w/ DT. mr. wd said he’s read that newly elected alberto fernandez (argentina) has offered him shelter, but ye gods and little fishes: i hope for now he’s in a deep dark badger hole, although he did travel a bit to regroup. there was also buzz that the new golpista leader Jeanine Añez (above) has grounded his planes….

      what a fucking tragedy; no pink nations will be allowed to survive! pompeo’s troika of tyranny: VZ, cuba, & bolivia.

    The IMF / CIA cartel is hell bent on teaching the people of SA their evil ways. This will come back to bite them. Too many people getting railroaded.

    • mornin’, spirit level. yes, no pink nations will stand! eradicate them by MSM disinformational agitprop psyops, tell the lies often enough they become the truth, and even your D candidates and elected critters will believe them.

  3. more from telesur engish on twitter this a.m.:

    a bit from the link:

    “Mesa and Camacho, discriminators and conspirators, will go down in history as racists and coup plotters,” Morales said in a tweet early Monday morning.
    “That they assume their responsibility to pacify the country and guarantee the political stability and peaceful coexistence of our people. The world and Bolivian patriots repudiate the coup.”
    He added that those behind the coup against his government, who had vandalized his house and burned his sister’s house “now lie and try to blame us for the chaos and violence they have caused. Bolivia and the world witness the coup.”
    He concluded his morning tweets with thanking the solidarity shown by his supporters in Bolivia and abroad. “Very grateful to the solidarity of the people, brothers from Bolivia and the world who reach out with recommendations, suggestions and expressions of recognition that give us encouragement, strength and energy. They moved me to tears. They never abandoned me; I will never abandon them,” Morales said.”

    @telesurenglish 2h2 hours ago ‘BREAKING | Commander of the Bolivian police Yuri Calderon has resigned amid a right-wing coup against Evo Morales.’

    and from rancid sassy’s account:

  4. H/T Statement from President Donald J. Trump Regarding the Resignation of Bolivian President Evo Morales

    “The White House
    Office of the Press Secretary
    November 11, 2019

    Statement from President Donald J. Trump Regarding the Resignation of Bolivian President Evo Morales

    The resignation yesterday of Bolivian President Evo Morales is a significant moment for democracy in the Western Hemisphere. After nearly 14 years and his recent attempt to override the Bolivian constitution and the will of the people, Morales’s departure preserves democracy and paves the way for the Bolivian people to have their voices heard. The United States applauds the Bolivian people for demanding freedom and the Bolivian military for abiding by its oath to protect not just a single person, but Bolivia’s constitution. These events send a strong signal to the illegitimate regimes in Venezuela and Nicaragua that democracy and the will of the people will always prevail. We are now one step closer to a completely democratic, prosperous, and free Western Hemisphere.”

    RT adds more including:

    “Trump, of course, did not mention the US’ hand in influencing Bolivian affairs. Right-wing causes in the country benefited from around one million dollars in grants from the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) last year alone. Suspected by some to be an arm of the CIA, the NED was established by Ronald Reagan in 1983 to promote American-style neoliberalism abroad.”

    [NED and USAID are absolutely covers for CIA/special ops.]

    “While Trump denounced Morales, the US State Department stepped in to sanitize Washington’s position, with a senior official telling Reuters that the US has “no preference” among opposition candidates. The spokesperson did say, however, that anyone who tried to “distort” last month’s vote should not be allowed to participate.”

    “The incongruity of praising violent opposition activists and the military for overruling the results of a democratic election – and then calling that outcome democracy – was apparently lost on the US president.”

    RT has several more titles up, including a few noteworthy tweets:

    ‘Bolivia | Security forces are cracking down on supporter of Evo Morales in El Alto, reportedly using live ammunition. One person has been killed so far amid the clashes after Sunday’s coup.’
