Today’s the 39 anniversary of the Sandinista revolution. Managua is out to celebrate the apparent defeat of a soft coup that paralyzed #Nicaragua. I’m here to document a side of the story omitted by Western media. A thread follows on some of what I’ve learned. Vid & print later.
Yesterday I visited Radio Ya, private leftist radio station that is top rated in Managua and supplied social services to locals regardless of their politics. It was burned to the ground by the opposition. 22 staffers escaped with their lives.
Staff of @nuevaya work out of a small makeshift office now. Those working the night shift must sleep in to avoid right-wing violence. “We are hunted by hit men,” station director Denis Schwartz told me. Its sports reporters were recently accosted by gunmen on motorcycles.

An image of Jesus Christ, shot through by paramilitary snipers who shot at students and priests for 20+ hours, trapped inside the parish of Divine Mercy in #Managua. I listened to live streams from inside all night. They shot to kill. And kill, they did. #Nicaragua #nicaraguasos
After listening to live, close-range gunfire & calm narration by a livestreamer inside the church, i couldn’t sleep all night even when the feed went silent. I can’t focus on anything today but those kids still trapped inside the church. #NicaraguaSOS

Anexo (85) #Nicaragua #Mayo #2018
Francisco Uriel Molina, franciscano, adepto de la Teología de Liberación (#jesuita) es miembro de la "comisión de la verdad" para "investigar" muertes de manifestaciones.

Los nicaragüenses serán engañados, esa comisión no defiende la verdad.
Anexo (86) #Colombia Gustavo #Petro dice "esto pasa por estudiar teología".

Y se refiere a cuando estudiaba TEOLOGÍA de la LIBERACIÓN (invento #jesuita) en el colegio La Salle de Zipaquirá, cerca de Bogotá.

Detrás de un comunista o guerrillero hay casi siempre un #jesuita
Anexo (87) #Bilderberg2018
Por primera vez en 66 años de creación de #Bilderberg ,fue invitado el Secretario de Estado del Vaticano, el cardenal Pietro Parolin.

Esto ocurre precisamente cuando los #jesuitas sostienen el poder en la "Santa Sede".

Nicaragua is practically under a dictatorship by the FSLN (Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional), and the current president has been in power since 2007 (he was also previously in power from 1979 to 1990). Despite this we still continued to be a country with many liberties.
However during the past weeks, things have changed due to a massive fire that burned up an important biological reserve.
The gov. was clearing land at the time to build roads and it’s not hard to guess the wildfire was caused by their own loss of control. They denied this claim

Real interference in election:
#Lebanon, 1950s: CIA provided funds to support the campaigns of Camille Chamoun & selected parliamentary candidates; other funds were targeted against candidates who had shown less than total enchantment with US interference.
Real interference in election campaigns:
#Indonesia, 1955:
A million dollars were dispensed by the CIA to a centrist coalition’s electoral campaign in a bid to cut into the support for President #Sukarno’s party and the Indonesian #Communist_Party.
#Vietnam, 1955:
The US was instrumental in South Vietnam canceling the elections scheduled to unify North and South because of the certainty that the North Vietnamese communist leader, Ho Chi Minh, would easily win.

1/ Trump admin is actively working to sentence ~200K innocent Salvadorans now legally in US to death. Let's talk about everything wrong with this rank @ICEgov propaganda from @CBSThisMorning & the complicity of these "journalists" in that plan. #SaveTPS…
2/ Let's start with that headline. Why would a crackdown on gangs be "controversial"? Gangs are bad, and few worse than MS-13. But @CBSThisMorning doesn't address it in the story at all, leaving reasonable people to assume that there is no rational counterpoint. But there is.
3/ If you watch story closely, there are threads that an actual journalist would have not only tugged, but yanked free until something snapped. But as the anchor notes at the end, @margbrennan had "amazing access" to @ICEgov operation. Clearly that access came at a steep price.
