When this woman says: “The Bible returns to the Palace”, she is referencing the legacy of the Doctrine of Discovery and Papal Bulls cited and linked below. Folks need to wake up to the FACT that this is what underlies (l-i-e-s being the operative set of letters and delusion being the motivation of the predator) that in the US ARE STILL PART OF LAND LAW referenced as recently as 2012 in the UN with special session of the UNPFII with speakers from all over the world. PLEASE wrap your head around this reality.

An excerpt from the Dum Diversas of 1452:

(“…) We weighing all and singular the premises with due meditation, and noting that since we had formerly by other letters of ours granted among other things free and ample faculty to the aforesaid King Alfonso – to invade, search out, capture, vanquish, and subdue all Saracens and pagans whatsoever, and other enemies of Christ wheresoever placed, and the kingdoms, dukedoms, principalities, dominions, possessions, and all movable and immovable goods whatsoever held and possessed by them and to reduce their persons to perpetual slavery, and to apply and appropriate to himself and his successors the kingdoms, dukedoms, counties, principalities, dominions, possessions, and goods, and to convert them to his and their use and profit – by having secured the said faculty, the said King Alfonso, or, by his authority, the aforesaid infante, justly and lawfully has acquired and possessed, and doth possess, these islands, lands, harbors, and seas, and they do of right belong and pertain to the said King Alfonso and his successors”. (…)

In 1493 Alexander VI issued the bull Inter Caetera stating one Christian nation did not have the right to establish dominion over lands previously dominated by another Christian nation, thus establishing the Law of Nations. Together, the Dum Diversas, the Romanus Pontifex and the Inter Caetera came to serve as the basis and justification for the Doctrine of Discovery, the global slave-trade of the 15th and 16th centuries, and the Age of Imperialism.

“The perpetrator of a wrong never forgives his victims” Cherokee philosopher John Ross on the Takings Act of 1949 or P.L. 437 of the 81st Congress.

This can be done. Over the past decade and more the Ecumenical community is increasingly formallyrepudiating the premises of the Doctrine of Discovery. Reading the repudiations provides an idea of HOW this is done.

Yes, a glaring component of the racism aimed at Bolivia’s indigenous majority emanates from Christian-supremacists. I’m looking at you, Mikes Pompeo and Pence. Here’s a look into that:

They are ever so busy redefining feminism for us to make us in their image. An obvious control mechanism as in wanting to turn black folks into understudy of white corporatists. We need to send them a clear message: We don’t want what you have to offer-exploitation, endless wars, ruined eco-systems, inequality.

When pissed, the people of Bolivia mobilize heavy equipment and move boulders, of which there is no short supply, onto the roads. I hope that they are now doing so on the road to Uyuni, the salt flat where the lithium resides. Furthermore, tie up the whole damn money machine. Stay strong Bolivia!

A planning session on how to keep the peace?
That probably means they are deciding which bullets to use because that’s how democracy works isn’t it?

We starting to see a pattern, huh? Add “Caucasoid” “Anglo” or inbred “White” and we can pretty much all concur, the phony-baloney religiosity (any neo-liberal/ neo-fascist ‘continum’ is shrinking, as the 0.01% pull up the ladder on petit-bourgeois Creative Class™ aspirants in media, etc?) Sameysame, peh? The Atlantic knows exactly who to blame! Jack Ryan S3/E1?

I’m kind of torn on this one. None of this may ever have happened if Morales and his acolytes would have been cultivating his successor in his second term instead of ignoring the constitution and trying to stay in power as long as possible. He literally opened the door for the fascists.
That being said, why have the supposed majority, them being the Morales supporters, not taken to the streets? They have clearly been overthrown by a Christo-fascist lunatic who intends to make Bolivia a giant hole in the ground Where all the lithium used to be. If they don’t rise up now they just may be headed for Brazil or Columbias fate.

What’s in that book she’s taking into the palace?

It’s the story of an overseas brutal empire that establishes a foreign king, who in turn butchers an entire town full of male infants. Some of the soldiers have moral injuries. Then somebody in the palace wants to see a local prophet’s head on a platter. So Jesus preaches about corrupt tax collectors and throwing the bankers out of the temple, “…but you have made it into a den of thieves!” There’s a lot of that.

Enough to make us ashamed of our European descent.

From the article (emphasis added):

She’s declared herself president without having a quorum in the parliament,” Morales supporter Julio Chipana told The Guardian. “She doesn’t represent us.”

This may be just a trial run - if it works, Hillary’s going to try it here.
