thanku, and appreciate the video. I had NO IDEA what was occurring in Peru.

All over the world right wing authoritarians whom we’ve tolerated for decades in our midst…are taking action to protect the ill gotten gains of the few…by destroying what’s left of our democracies, if possible.

We all need to wake up and speak up and act out…fast.

While Vizcarra is no leftist like Bolivia’s Evo Morales, his popular anti-corruption efforts jeopardized legislators’ “pocketbooks and threatened to end many of their political careers,” the Post noted.

Echoes of Bernie Sanders here in US America–it was not only the GOP but “Democrats” elites that prevented his election. Elites everywhere are afraid of the same. A radicalized opposition the world over which has vision is needed and needed now.

This is the way the Reich operates world-wide, setting up FALSE accusations against the Left, and taking action AS IF those accusations were in fact true.

What this creates is a so-called “Government” that CANNOT work as it should, not even for the usurpers. Then, of course, any shade of benefits to the country has to get in line to await the NEXT coup… which WILL come along quite soon enough to keep everyone treading water in one place hoping for relief from the inevitable repression… so that they can get back to the business of living their lives…
