UPDATE: Racist statements come out of the mouth of Bolivia's self-declared president:

Jeanine Anez, one of the Bolivian Spanish elite, has declared herself the President of Bolivia. She is one of the elite allied with Washington who accused Evo Morales of rigging his reelection. But the CIA's Bolivian lackeys who forced Morales to resign his presidency don't bother with elections. They just declare themselves president like Juan Guaido, the CIA creep in Venezuela, who hoped to unseat Maduro, the elected president, by declaring himself president. Neither Anez nor Guaido ran for the office. They just self-appointed themselves president. The organization of American States, a CIA front organization, accepted the unelected presidents as rightful rulers. President Trump declared the CIA coup to be an increase in freedom and democracy.

As Trump approves of the attempted coup against Venezuela's Maduro and the successful coup against Bolivia's Morales, how can he complain about the CIA/DNC ongoing coup against him? Live by the sword and die by the sword.

The whores that constitute the Western "media" pretend that self-declared "presidents" are the real presidents, and those elected by the people are not. Every Latin American election that does not elect Washington's candidate is reported by the Western presstitutes as a "disputed election." It doesn't matter if the winning candidate gets 85% of the votes. As he is the wrong candidate from Washington's standpoint, his election is disputed and illegitimate.

Washington paid the corrupt Bolivian military to unseat Morales, the elected president. This has always been the way Washington has ruled the entirety of Latin America. Buy the corrupt military. They will prostitute their wives for money.

In Latin America everyone is accustomed to being bought. Only Cuba and Venezuela and perhaps Nicaragua have avoided this subservience to Washington. With the pressures on them mounting, how long these three progressive regimes can hold out against Washington remains to be seen. I wouldn't bet my life on their survival as independent countries. Even Russia and China are threatened by regime change, and both governments seem to be in self-denial about it.

It is a mystery why any Latin American country or any country that hopes to be independent would permit any US presence in the country. US presence in a Latin American country or any country precludes any independence on the part of the country's government. I suppose it is the money. Latin Americans would rather have Washington's money than their independence.

In order to have an American presence in Russia, the Russian government accepts all sorts of humiliations. China is the same. Look at what Washington has done to China in Hong Kong. It is extraordinary that the Chinese government was so insouciant that China set itself up for this embarrassment.

Russia's sizable investments in Bolivia will now be lost. With the Spanish elite put back in control by the CIA, Russia's investments will be appropriated by US firms. One wonders why Russia didn't do more to protect Morales, the legitimate President. If Putin had sent Morales a regiment of Russian troops, the Bolivian military would have stood down, and democracy, instead of American Imperialism, would still exist in Bolivia.

What has happened everywhere in the world is that nothing is any longer important but money. Therefore, everything is sacrificed for money. There is no shame, no honor, no integrity, no truth, no justice.

Maybe the biblical prophesies are true, and Armageddon is our future. Who can say we don't deserve it.
