How US govt-funded media fueled a violent coup in Nicaragua

quote [ To support the media ecosystem it sought to establish in Nicaragua, USAID channeled money through an entity run by Nicaragua’s most powerful oligarchic family, the Chamorro Foundation.

Among the most prominent recipients of the millions USAID plowed through the Chamorro Foundation was the opposition media outlet 100% Noticias. ]

Hmm, why does all this sound familiar? Oh, right.

AMLO Blasts U.S. Support for Mexico NGOs Before Call With VP - Bloomberg

Which again is totally unrelated to AMLO's recent attempts to nationalize Mexico's Lithium mines he was forced to pull back on.

Here's well known non-biased The Economist comparing AMLO against noted fascists Bolsanaro, Modi, and Trump. For funsies of course.


Hmm, how did a fascist like Bolsanaro get elected anyway? Oh, right.

The Secret History of U.S. Involvement in Brazil’s Operation Car Wash


Leaked chat logs show that Brazilian prosecutors evaded treaties to help the U.S. Justice Department investigate Brazilian corporations.



Ah well, I'm sure it'll be fine. Now that Lula has been freed he's on track for taking back the presidency.


I mea, what could possibly go wrong?


Oh, right.

Any time you hear "civil society groups" what you are hearing is "contract coup plotters". The funding for "democratic opposition groups" is on the way, and pretty soon POOF, Syria and Venezuela.
