Bolivia’s President Declares His Nation Free of IMF and World Bank
Don’t be surprised if something fishy happens to Bolivian President Evo Morales. The banksters don’t tolerate well dissension and resistance to their economic control of basically the entire planet. Two of the biggest tools the banking cartels employ to keep world governments walking their tightrope are the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank. Morales just told both to go toss off.
As an example of what happens when leaders refuse to jump when bankers tell them to jump, just look what happened to JFK when moved to give power back to the people. His short time in office was marked by his moves to take power away from the bankers and their minions, threatening to “splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces” and to start doing something only government is supposed to do in the first place, print its own money. (Google Executive Order 11110 and read any descriptions of it with a critical eye.)
Soon after these and other bold moves pissed off everyone from oil tycoons to the military-industrial complex, a “lone nut” gunned him down, and somebody gunned the “lone nut” down before he had a chance to tell his side of the story. Truly, a power structure alibi that’s a cliché worthy of bad film noir.
It should come as no surprise to those well versed in Realpolitik, and not the pro-American, cotton candy fantasies that brainwash the masses, that banking cartels are meddlesome sons of bitches. Zero Hedge writes:
Morales has said Bolivia’s past dependence on the agencies was so great that the International Monetary Fund had an office in government headquarters and even participated in their meetings.
It seems Morales wants to spend money on his people rather than paying interest to banking gangsters and depending on their whims for prosperity.
Some of Bolivia’s largest resistance struggles in the last 60 years have targeted the economic policies carried out by the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.
Most of the protests focused on opposing privatization policies and austerity measures, including cuts to public services, privatization decrees, wage reductions, as well the weakening of labor rights.
Since 2006, a year after Morales came to power, social spending on health, education, and poverty programs has increased by over 45 percent.
What typically happens when a country resists the influence of banking institutions, which Thomas Jefferson famously wrote are more dangerous than standing armies, is a three phase process. A former CIA employee and author of Confessions of an Economic Hitman, John Perkins, says the game is played like this. This is how a “rogue” leader like Morales, who wants to better his people rather than play the banking game, is dealt with.
- He is bought off by the international banking cartel; if he refuses to be bought off the next phase of the process ensues
- Leaders who won’t be bought off suffer untimely “accidents” like when President Omar Torrijos of Panama died in a strange plane crash (Jesse Ventura, former governor of Minnesota refuses to fly because of this M.O. of the elite), or lose power from coup d’etat overthrows that arise out of nowhere (usually funded by outside interests)
- Those who can’t be assassinated or overthrown are eliminated by the American Empire’s military, by so-called “operations” or all-out war, using its bases in 130 countries around the globe
Perkins goes into detail about how the process works in an interview. This is what Perkins says really happened in the death of Torrijos and other Latin American leaders.
I particularly became close to Torrijos. He was a very charismatic guy. I liked him a lot, and he liked me for some reason, and we became fairly close. At least I thought we were close.
And it was a huge dilemma for me, I’ll tell you, because my job was to corrupt him, to bring him around. That was my job. And I wasn’t succeeding at it. He was very stalwart. He had a lot of integrity. He used to say to me, “Look, you know, John” — Juanito he called me. This was all in Spanish.
He said, “You know, Juanito, I’ve got plenty of money. I’ve got a good house. I’ve got everything I need. I don’t need your bribes. I don’t need your loans. We don’t need that here. What I need is freedom for my people. I don’t want to buy into this.”
And, you know, I couldn’t bring him around. And I realized that if I was not able to bring him around, something dire was likely to happen to him, as I’ve seen happen to Arbenz in Guatemala and to Allende in Chile and Lumumba in the Congo and Diem in Vietnam and many others. We’ve seen this happen.
So I was really torn because I respected the man for his integrity. Tremendously, I respected him. And yet, I wasn’t able to do my job and I feared that something would happen to him. And, of course, it did. He was assassinated.
Spengler predicted Western democracy would be permeated, and destroyed by the “unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought” of money as Eisenhower tried to warn the oblivious American public about in his farewell speech in 1961, just before Kennedy took office.
It’s horrifying to even entertain the idea this is how the world operates. But, it seems that’s the way things are. Morales may be just another corrupt leader, but he’s no worse than the leaders of the American Empire if indeed, this is how they operate. It seems increasingly likely our leaders are nothing more than minions of the elite who have no loyalty to country or citizen, only to fattening themselves at the bankers’ trough.
And having spent extensive time in Latin America, I know our leaders in Anglo America constantly misrepresent that area of the world. It’s so bad, I don’t believe anything they say, anymore. This is coming from a 15-year veteran of the corrupt media.
Stay tuned. And keep an eye on President Morales. Don’t be surprised if American leaders suddenly come up with an issue that puts Bolivia on the map, one that tranforms Morales into another of its targets. That is, if he can’t be dealt with in more clandestine ways on the political chessboard. As always, in the game of politics and power, follow the money and not the lies.
