Is US Department Of Defence Regime Change Agency Planning Color Revolution In Nicaragua

Protestors in Nicaragua – but do they know what they are protesting about (Picture: Al Jazeera )

 

As civil unrest takes hold in the Central American republic, we are seeing reports that Nicaraguan student protest leaders have met with Washington DC, neocons, a publication funded by the US government’s regime change arm, the ludicrously misnamed National Endowment for Democracy (NED), boasts of spending millions of dollars “laying the groundwork for insurrection” against Daniel Ortega

Corporate mainstream media outlets are portraying the violent protest movement sweeping Nicaragua as a progressive grassroots upswell but the country’s student leaders have suggested otherwise.

In June this year, young Nicaraguan political activists went on a junket funded by US taxpayers to Washington DC, hosted by right-wing advocacy group Freedom House. The Nicaraguans were there to lobby Donald Trump and other right-wing US government officials for help in their fight against Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega.

During the trip, the young activists posed for photo-ops with leading Republican Party neocons and warmongers including Senators Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. The Nicaraguan party also had meetings with top officials from the State Department and the US government soft power organization USAID. There, they were reportedly assured they would have Washington’s full-throated support in the event of a rebellion against Ortega.

A month before those meetings , a publication funded by the US government’s regime change arm, the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), revealed that organizations backed by the NED have spent years and millions of dollars “laying the groundwork for insurrection” in Nicaragua.

This article, openly boasting of US meddling was repoted by the Latin America news website Global Americans, and was reputedly authored by US academic Benjamin Waddell, the academic director of the School for International Training in Nicaragua. Following publication of this piece, Global Americans replaced the term “insurrection” with the less incendiary word “change.” The original headline can however still be seen in the article’s URL.

Waddell’s article offers a remarkably honest assessment of the impact of the National Endowment for Democracy’s long term activities in Nicaraguan domestic politics. The author’s conclusions tended to confirm assertions made by Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega and members of his government, who have claimed the protests are a carefully staged plot backed and organised by Washington.

“International press has depicted the rapid escalation of civil unrest in Nicaragua as a spontaneous explosion of collective discontent, triggered by the government’s changes to its insolvent social security system and rooted in more than a decade of authoritarian rule by the Ortega-Murillo family,” Waddell wrote. “And while the underlying causes of the turmoil are rooted in government mismanagement and corruption, it’s becoming more and more clear that the U.S. support has helped play a role in nurturing the current uprisings.”

In another striking passage, Waddell concluded, “the NED’s current involvement in nurturing civil society groups in Nicaragua sheds light on the power of transnational funding to influence political outcomes in the 21st century.”

The USA has a long history of meddling in the domestic politics of small, thirds world nations, often unsuccessfully and frequently with catastrophic results. The NED has been one of the leading agent of US soft power since its founding in 1983, at the height of the Cold War, its function being to fund and organise opposition to governments that refuse to serve US geopolitical ambitions.  The first NED success took place in Nicaragua, where it incubated anti-Sandinista media outfits like the La Prensa newspaper and right wing political groups.

In 1990, the Ortega’s party, the Sandinistas, were defeated at the polls by the right-wing candidate Violeta Chamorro, whose family happened to own La Prensa. Chamorro’s victory represented the culmination of nearly $16 million dollars in NED grants to anti-Sandinista political parties and media outlets.

More recently we have seen US led regime change efforts either fail ignominiously, as in Afghanistan and Syria, succeed catastrophically as in Libya, under Colonel Gadaffi Africa’s more prosperous and socially advanced nation, now after Libya was bombed by he US, France and UK (the FUKUS axis,) it is a failed state enmired in a tripartate civil war, or simply achieve the opposite of what was intended as in Ukraine where a deeply corrupt but democratically elected government was overthrown in a CIA engineered coup, only to be replaced by an equally corrupt neo – Nazi government.

Kermit Roosevelt, a member of the famous American political family but who made his contributions to the nation in the shadowy world of spy craft, even bragged about it publicly in his book Countercoup, revealing there was a manual in circulation at the CIA dealing with how you overthrow governments.

Mr. Roosevelt’s best-known exploit was as director of the 1953 coup that overthrew the leader of Iran, Prime Minister Mohammed Mossadegh, a nationalist who concerned Washington because he was supported by the Iranian Communists at the height of the cold war.

So it seems to me this was a playbook coup d’état is something reheared by the CIA many times over decades. The is no denying Washington’s role in the Ukraine regime change of course, Vitoria Nuland, at the time Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs, working with the US Ambassador, in a famous open mic moment complained that the US had spent a billion dollars organising the coup with the aim of getting Ukraine into the European Union and thus controlling Black Sea shipping routes to Russia’s only warm water ports, only to find the right wing extremists they had supported were not acceptable to the EU. Many copies of the recording made of that slip up still exist, here’s a link to a BBC transcript.

Ukraine was a particularly embarrassing fail for the US DoD Regime change Agency,

What is surprising is that the warmongers of Washington have learned nothing from all this and, as we can see from the reports coming out of Nicaragua, are getting ready to make the same foreign policy mistakes all over again.

Ukraine Revolution, Glamour Models And Oligarchs

About Three Weeks Ago Christina Odone In The Daily Telegraph Asked “Who said the EU is useless? It’s helping freedom fighters in the Ukraine”

link

Ever eager to help politicians, academics and media luvvies to get a grip on reality I used my alter ego to reply:

Ed Butt • 18 days ago

According to the best sources we have, Ukraine is evenly split in support of the existing government and the pro EU opposition. Syria and Libya were equally split before intervention by the FUKUS axis plunged those nations into civil conflict.

So are you supporting intervention that escalates the conflict into civil war or leads to fragmentation of Ukraine.

The conflict is being exacerbated by Poland via the EU. It is largely forgotten that the north west of Ukraine used to belong to Poland and they would like like it back please, or at least allied with Poland. The only way that can happen is for Ukraine to become part of EU. However, the majority of the Ukraine voted differently. Now, we cant have that sort of thing, can we? The very thought of it, people choosing not to join the EU and have the bureaucrats of Brussels plunder their nation on behalf of the global banking cartel, that would be completely undemocratic. As we know from the Irish referendum on the Lisbon treaty, if an referendum in an EU nation gives the answer Brussels has not prescribed, then another referendum must be held … and another … and another until the voters get it right.

Telling the truth online is never popular, especially with the lefties who support global totalitarian government, (this is not all lefties, oop ‘ere in ‘t north there are plenty of hairy arsed Old Labour supporters who still believe the WOGS begin at Calais.) Some of the replies I had were so Harriet Harman I began to wonder if I had pissed off PIE.

jamesmace @ Ed Butt • 18 days ago

Are you seriously suggesting that half of Ukraine approves of the oligarchs liquidating state assets and stuffing their pockets with hundreds of Billion$

yanukovich.info

If you actually believe this, I have a lovely Olympic resort to sell you – used only once but bathrooms need some work.

Ed Butt @ jamesmace • 17 days ago

No I don’t believe that, neither do I believe that you can provide one shred of evidence to back up your belief that half Ukraine wants to be another Greece in the EUSSR.
What I have read and find credible (I wouldn’t go as far as to say I believe it entirely) is that half Ukraine is quite fond of Russian culture while the other half is driven by an understandable but irrational hatred of Russia because of what Stalin did to their countrymen.
None of these for a good basis for deciding a nation’s future.

charlberg @ Ed Butt • 18 days ago

‘Best sources’?? Wow – In spite of living in Kiev, I didn’t notice that half of Ukrainians are adamantly against fair elections, free speech, independent courts and eliminating rampant corruption. Is that a GfK survey you are referring to? Would love the link

(Given what we know now – and Boggart Blog knew then – we have to assume Charlberg is visually impaired)

Ed Butt @ charlberg • 17 days ago

You’d do better to comment on what I actually said. Seeing as you didn’t and you are plainly ignorant of what’s going on in the place where you live, you don’t deserve a link.

(Ah well at least his guy was awake)

kievjoy @ charlberg • 17 days ago

I live here too charlberg. Isn’t it strange that people are willing to die for what they don’t believe in. As for the EU, they are, as we say in England, all mouth and trousers.

Ukraine is split. There’s a Russian half and there’s the other half. Any casual observer can tell you that, we only have to think back to the Orange revolution og 2004 – 5 to know it is true. There are bound to be rights and wrongs on both sides, good guys and bad guys too. So what in heaven’s name gives western media and political figures the right to pontificate about “freedom fighters” and a brave and independent political movements ( that, umm – you know, depend on the EU and USA for their funding?

***********************

Since then of course we have had the great stand off and eventually after lots of pressure on mainstream news to stop telling lies and spreading EU / US propaganda, came that notorious BBC Newsnight video report “Neo Nazi Threat In Ukraine which admitted the riots in Kiev had been led by EU / US backed right wing extremists.

Now today we learn that former Ukraine Prime Minister who before the revolution was in prison for fraud, embezzlement and suspected murder (she was awaiting trial on that one), the billionaire oligarch and former glamour model (see below) Yulia Tymoshenko stands accused of laundering money she stole from Ukraine’s treasury through UK banks.

During the uprising in Kiev, Tymoshenko was released from prison and pardoned to enable her to return to front line politics.

Now what was it one of those cupid stunts who tried to tackle Ed Butt said about the revolution happening because people were fed up of oligarchs looting the country? Idiotic effing custard.

Russia Today journalist Quits Over Whitewashing Of Putin

Russia Today
Picture source: The Guardian

Former (as of last night)Russia Today correspondent in Washington DC, Liz Wahl’s publicly announced (while live on air reportedly) that she “cannot be part of a network funded by the Russian government that whitewashes the actions of Putin…” (see video clip below) Well she is probably correct on that, it would be quite unreasonable to believe a news organisation funded by the government of Russia would reports in an unbiased and objective way the festering underbelly of Russian politics.

Another US national working for Russia today, Abby Martin, also spoke out on air against the Kermlin action because she felt the intervention in Ukraine was morally wrong.

Ms Martin said: “I can’t stress enough how strongly I am against any state intervention in a sovereign nation’s affairs. Just because I work here doesn’t mean I don’t have editorial independence,” she said, adding: “What Russia did was wrong.””

RT said it respected Ms Martin’s views, and that she would not be reprimanded.

If only we had some journalists and broadcasters or newspapers, rdio and television news organisations in Britain that took the job so seriously people would resign rather than pump out government friendly propganda.

Can you imagine what would happen if some journo said, OK President Obama aka Barry Soeroro, if as you say you are eligible to serve as Presodent how come you will not show your long form birth certificate / reveal school and college records / explain why your social security number really belongs to a dead guy? There would be a witch hunt.

Or what if a BBC news reporter said, “Well OK, this UKIP member told a rather tasteless joke in a private conversation. I don’t really think that makes everybody in the party a racist.

Or what if some columnist for The Guardian or The Indy wrote, “Actually I think same sex marriage is a stupid idea”.

Yeah.

At least RT was correct when it said yesterday that “Contrary to the popular opinion, RT doesn’t beat its journalists into submission, and they are free to express their own opinions, not just in private but on the air.” One wonders if Ms. Wahl’s next stop will be MSNBC, FOX, CNN, or any other US mainstream media organisation where the truly objective and unbiased coverage is as common as rocking horse shit.

And now back to mainstream media’s unbiased and objective coverage of the Ukraine crisis, which after previously deomonising Putin and Russia for being behind the violence in Kiev was forced when presented with incontrovertible evidence to admit that it may well have been Kiev’s current post-coup and US-supported acting governmenta bunch of neo Nazi thugs according to westerners on the ground in Ukraine, that ordered the murder of its own civilians in an apparent attempt to escalate conflict and provoke the Russians into doing something that would force western intervention. Ummmm – haven’t we been here before? For Kiev read Damasus.

RUSSIA TODAY PRESENTER QUITS ON AIR.

How To Destabilize A Nation

orange revolution ukraine
The Orange Revolution 2004 – 5 (Ukraine get’s Tangoed)

Remember the last revolution in Ukraine, it hapened a few years ago, was called the colour revolution and there was a lot of orange involved but no bowler hats or liliburlero.

With the recent destabilization having taken place inside Ukraine and the ongoing destabilization of Venezuela currently playing out in South America, it’s time to step back from the emotions (especially people on the left of the political spectru8m whose knee jerk reaction is always to assume those trying to overthrow the legitimate government are the good guys even if they are human organ noshing Syrian religious fanatics or neo Fascist Ukrainian gangsters, and look in an objective way at the bigger picture. The first thing to stike us ought to be the manner in which the destinies of seemingly independent nations are controlled by a world oligarchy, for example have you noticed how the rebels (insurgents as the media insist on calling them though they are usually natives of the country they are trying to take over and so aren’t surging in from anywhere) always seem to be a rag bag of political factions, tribal minorities and and religious extremists? There are no coherent rebel groups with a set of demands, a manifesto or even an ideology.

The traditional methods of regime change consist of balkanization (see above), and the weakening of nation-states for political and/or geopolitical purposes. These however are too lengthy and uncertain for the New World Order whose global kleptocracy agenda is nothing to do with nation building and everything to do with enslavement through debt.

This reduces the options for destabilization somewhat. The open war method favoured by the Bush administration 2000 – 2008 in the USA is costly, usually a PR disaster and relies on opponents being gangsters, dupes, fanatics, warlords, suicide jockeys or followers of a criminally insane messianic cult leader . Such people can easily be provoked into committing atrocities that justify a regime chnage campaign.

The Brzezinski method, named for bill Clinton’s hit man Zbigniew Brzezinski. This is favoured by Liberal Fascists like the Clinton Andministration and Tony Blair’s New Labour. The technique is to shaft the economy of the target nation, cause as much social stress as possible, undermine the government, and in some cases allow the gangsters, dupes, fanatics, warlords, suicide jockeys or followers of a criminally insane messianic cult leader to directly seize power and set about a genocide. Then it is possible for the caring, sharing, Kumbaya singing liberal do gooders to declare they are launching a humanitarian mission before starting to bomb and shell the crap out of some third world failed state.

Lastly, there is the strategy of the “color revolution” modelled on the 2004 – 2005 unrest in Ukraine in which, after an unpopular election result, people took to the streets en masse, wearing orange armbands or waving orange flags. Though largely nonviolent in terms of destruction of life or property and is often made up of the genuinely disillusioned the movement is directed by the most disingenuous agents of powerful interests, the banking cartel. The aim is to make sure the new regime takes over a ruined economy so it will need a massive injection of cash loans which will be secured with bonds. And thus the nation is enslaved until the next revolution.

Color revolutions have been more successful in the Baltic states and Eastern Europe than in the Middle East where human organ noshers and mad mullahs tent to intimidate the flag wavers it is important to understand, that the NGOs (Non-Governmental Organizations), Foundations, and “Human Rights” organizations are always active in the countries where revolution happens, acting as political advisers, educators, trainers, development officers, and community organizers.

So we see that the global terrorist organisation is not Al Qaeda but the United Nations.

Ukranian model Valeria Lukyanova is a real person. you may find this hard to believe when you see the picture below, but honestly she is.

My wife is a big fan of a late night TV show called bodyshocks, in which ex model Katie Piper who was the target of an acid attack and has had to undergo many operations to rebuild her face, talks to people about cosmetic surgery disasters, faces and other body bits ruined not by violence but by that futile quest for physical perfection that obsesses so many young people these days.

Katie deals very sympathetically with cases where cosmetic surgery has gone wrong or highly visible but highly misguided tattoos. But the results of cosmetic surgery that has gone right can be just as insane.

Valeria Lukyanova - barbiesboushka?

Just one question. WTF was she thinking?
The same thing perhaps as the deluded revolutionaries in Ukraine, Egypt, Yemem and Syria who believed Obama would actually help them in more substantial ways than by making a speech.

In fact Valeria believes she is an alien and can live on light and air. Which explains a lot and answers for us a question relating to the insanity of the new rulers of western Ukraine who believe they can win a fight with Russia.

The entire country is insane.

Why Are We Pissing Off Russia Over Ukraine

Was hoping for something else to dominate the news today but as Ukraine is still the main story dominating broadcast and print media I need an article that mentions it to keep my traffic figures up.

As I can’t be arsed with the story any more (sorry Ukrainians, I love you but your revolution has reached the WGAF stage on the scale of declining compassion) it was a relif to see that Tim Stanley has a good piece in the Daily Telegraph about how the cheerleaders for war on the left of the political spectrum, believing they were supporting a progressive liberal, yooman rights obsessed movement of Marxist freedom fighters have been suckered again.

The loose coalition of factions that make up the revilutionary movement includes extremists of left and right, and bay far the strongest groups can only be described as neo Nazi (perhaps that’s why theyu are so ken on the EU). It’s only fair perhaps to remind our politically illiterate leftie friends that right and left are nothing to do with socialism and capitalism. The right represents authoritarianism (i.e. both socialism AND capitalism – strange bedfellows but at least they are both male, take comfort in that, lefties) while the left represents freedom, individualism and anarchy.

Here’s Tim Stanley

Ukraine: why are we trying to start a new cold war with Russia?

A lot of things don’t make sense about the Ukrainian uprising. For instance, we were constantly told that Russia basically ran the country – that Viktor Yanukovych was a puppet president. In which case, why did Yanukovych fall so easily and why did Russia do nothing to protect him? Also, why has Britain pledged to offer aid to whatever government replaces him? Apparently, our foreign policy has become to hand out cash to anyone who sets themselves up in opposition to Vladimir Putin. Perhaps it would be quicker to throw bundles of fifty pound notes out of an airplane over Kiev.

If we did that, into whose hands would the cash fall? Uncertainty over the answer reflects how complicated this conflict is. Last week I wrote about Svboda, the far-Right opposition group that is popular in Western Ukraine and whose members think the Holocaust was a moment of joy that still brings hope to millions. Since then readers have been suggesting I take a look at another organisation called the Right Sector. They are typically the people your see on TV waving red and black flags, a flag used by Ukrainians who collaborated with the Nazis in World War II.

Right Sector is so Right-wing that it thinks Svboda is run by pansy poet liberals. Recently, Time snagged an interview with its leader and he boasted that he has amassed “a lethal arsenal of weapons”, including guns. Indeed, its role in the protests is substantial, frightening:

“Journalism is reporting news somebody does not want reported, everything else is public relations.” – George Orwell

First it happened in Egypt (and we all know what happened there), Tunisia (a less well publicised failed state) and Libya. Then it all went a bit pear shaped in Yemen and Syria. Now it’s happening in Ukraine and Venezuela. The Global Totalitarian Government pushers, their puppets in Washington, London, Berlin and Paris, their pimps in Goldman Sachs, Citibank, HSBC, J P Morgan et al and the ponces of the United Nations, IMF, EU, OECD and the rest are trying to crush legitimate governments that dared to stand up to the New World Order and its corporate dictatorship agenda.

maidan square

Fears are growing among the terrorism sponsors of the FUKUS axis that once again chaos will result from their efforts to depose a regime in order to usher in a pseduo-liberal sockpuppetocracy that will prioritize gay and lesbian “rights” over taking action to prevent the rape of their nation by global banks and corporate conglomerates. It looks increasingly likely that US / EU supported rebels who were primed to drag Ukraine into the European Union (EUSSR) against the wishes of half the Ukrainian population will fail and Ukraine will split in two as crisis deepens in Kiev.

Rebels who support Ukrainian membership of the EU seized the office President Viktor Yanukovych in Kiev over the weekend and put in place an interim President and Government that has no legitimate authority and includes people from extreme left anarchist and right wing neo Nazi groups.

Meanwhile Regional lawmakers in the pro-Russia east rejected the legitimacy of the new government and the national parliament and said they were taking control of their territories. (Zero Hedge)

President Viktor Yanukovych, who is still technically the head of state said he was not resigning and slammed the crisis as a coup, saying it resembled the rise of the Nazis in the 1930s. Yanukovych fled Kiev for his stronghold in eastern Ukraine, .

“Everything that is happening today is … vandalism and bandits and a coup d’état,” Yanukovych said in a televised statement. He said he would not sign any of the measures passed by parliament.

All in all then, it looks as if FUKUS meddling has once again taken a nation to the brink of civil war and the world a few steps closer to global conflict. We are now witing for Vladimir Putin to make his next move and for the Chinese to make their position clear.

Tymoshenko Promises to Deliver Ukraine to the New World Order

On Saturday, oligarch, embezzler, murder suspect and former prime minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko, released from a prison sentence* in the eastern industrial city of Kharkiv, to wind up the Euromaidan revolutionaries in Kyviv’s Independence Square and push Ukraine closer to civil war.

“Do not leave Maidan as long as you have not obtained what you wanted,” she told the mob. “Your fight for freedom will bring about democracy in other ex-Soviet republics.This is a different Ukraine. This is a Ukraine of free people, and you have given this country to each and all of us, those who are living today and those who will live tomorrow. That is why people were on Maidan, who perished on Maidan will be heroes for ever,”

After arriving in Kyviv to assume leadership of the revolution that claimed the lives of around 100 people and brought down the corrupt government of Yanukovych and his cronies, the equally corrupt Tymoshenko said she is sure that Ukraine will be a member of the European Union in the near future and this will change everything, according to the Interfax news agency.

She could be right. If Ukraine with its basket case economy joins the EU it will become the new Greece in a matter of months. And people like you and I will be asked to pay more tax to prop up another state ruined by the globalists and European Superstate Nazis. It all seems to depend on the aforementioned V. Putin.

Obama’s Big Brother Is Watching You

Beyond Orwell’s Worst Nightmare says the headline and it truly is.

from Global Research:

“In his recent speech on NSA reforms, President Obama cited as precedent Paul Revere and the Sons of Liberty, who patrolled the streets at night, “reporting back any signs that the British were preparing raids against America’s early Patriots.” This was a weak effort to find historical support for the NSA spying program. After all, Paul Revere and his associates were patrolling the streets, not sorting through people’s private communications.”

In order to get better contextual references, The Emperor Obama should have considered how the American revolutionaries had reacted to searches conducted by the British before the revolution. The British used “general warrants,” which authorized blanket searches without any individual suspicion or clear identification of what the colonial authorities were snooping for.

In a petition to King George III in 1774, The American Colonial Congress protested against British officers’ unlimited power of search and seizure. The petition complained that the power had been abused “to break open and enter houses, without the authority of any civil magistrate.”

When leaders of the Revolution later drafted the Bill Of Rights, the Fourth Amendment was a prohibition on unreasonable searches and seizures, they were attempting to ensure that our country would not become a police state.

Obama is citing the Founding Fathers of the American nation as justification for his administration’s behaving like the people they were rebelling against.

I’m not siding with the American insurrectionists however. If they had just toughed it out and helped us bring the plundering Hanoverians to heel or even restore The Plantagenet dynasty (OK, they were wankers but they had a great name) the instead of the Jug Eared Jihadist America now has as it’s leaders, they could have had a loveable little old lady and her tree hugging, half wit son who is good for a laugh if nothing else.
