    There;s a lot of America's heartland that's been gutted out by the forces of Big Government and Big Business but some Americans still have that good vision for the farmlands and ranch lands of our country under federal government control. The Republicans moving the Bureau of Land Management office to Grand Junction, Colorado doesn't change the principle of federal control that strangles the use of the land and put people like Dwight and Steven Hammond in jail. When Ammon Bundy brought his peaceful protest..... In our world today much rage obviously in the spirit of anarchy and Marxism-Leninism manifesting itself...

    Morales, an iconic socialist leader in Latin America who had been in power for nearly 14 years, has said he was toppled in a coup and has relocated to Mexico, which has granted him asylum. But lawmakers in his Movement to Socialism (MAS) party have reached a deal with other parties to pass legislation needed to appoint a new electoral board to call new elections. The bill they hashed out would annul the Oct. 20 election and was passed by the Senate unanimously on Saturday. The lower chamber was expected to pass it later in the day. In the highland...

    Nine days after Evo Morales resigned the presidency, Bolivia remains in political and social turmoil. At least six people were killed in violence Tuesday as the military escorted fuel tankers from a gasoline plant in the high plateau city of El Alto. Supporters of Morales had blockaded the plant for five days, causing fuel and food shortages in La Paz, the administrative capital. A reporter from The New York Times saw the bodies of five young men with gunshot wounds outside the plant, and witnesses say a military unit shot the men. Bolivia's human rights ombudsman confirmed that six people...

    At least eight people were killed and dozens injured in the Bolivian city of Sacaba on Friday, after security forces fired on supporters of ousted president Evo Morales, according to the Associated Press. With tensions running high following Morales' resignation last Sunday, demonstrators took to the streets to decry the nation's interim president, Jeanine Añez. The protesters, made up largely of members of Bolivia's indigenous population, view Añez's rule as illegitimate and are calling for Morales to return. The former president has been granted asylum in Mexico. Protesters said the violence began after they tried to cross a military checkpoint...

    A day after Jeanine Anez claimed the presidency, violent clashes broke out between rock-throwing Morales' supporters and police in riot gear, who fired volleys of tear gas to disperse the large crowd of protesters. "My commitment is to return democracy and tranquillity to the country," she said. "They can never again steal our vote." Bolivia's top constitutional court issued a statement late Tuesday laying out the legal justification for Anez taking the presidency — without mentioning her by name. Eduardo Gamarra, a Bolivian political scientist at Florida International University, said the constitution clearly states that Anez didn't need a congressional...

    Local civilians in El Alto, Bolivia, detained three Cuban nationals and handed them over to police on Wednesday, who found evidence that the foreigners were paying people to riot on behalf of the nation’s socialist party. The revelation follows the arrests of several Venezuelan and Cuban citizens among the thousands rioting in El Alto and La Paz, the seat of the executive branch, and the positive identification of a man injured during protests two weeks ago as an Argentine member of the Marxist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) terrorist group. Members of anti-socialist groups who organized peaceful protests against...

    Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar is calling the ouster of Bolivian President Evo Morales a 'coup' after the socialist leader resigned from office under pressure from the military. Omar, the 'squad' member and frequent critic and target of President Trump, made the statement after Morales, the first indigenous leader of Bolivia, left office Sunday after 14 years in power. The military had pressured him to go amid street protests. The Organization of American States (OAS) denounced 'clear manipulations' in his reelection bid and urged new elections be held. 'There's a word for the President of a country being pushed out by...

    Like all dictatorships, every socialist hellhole dictatorship eventually falls. It's a law of nature, and with socialism inherently unsustainable as both a political and an economic system, it's a law about as certain as 'what goes up, must come down.' Which brings us to Bolivia, where embattled far left Hugo-Chavez-trained socialist dictator Evo Morales, now on his fourth term in a grossly rigged election, has for the first time wobbled in fear in response to protests. Here's the New York Times' comically delicate reportage: Faced with unrelenting protests over the results of disputed elections in which he claimed victory, President...

    President Evo Morales said Monday he was not abandoning hope despite indications Bolivians had rejected by a slim margin amending the constitution so he could run for a fourth straight term in 2019. A member of the national electoral tribunal, Antonio Costas, said later that decisive official results from Sunday’s referendum could not be promised for Monday. Morales said at a televised news conference he had faith in the slower-reporting countryside, where he has greater support. ...

    On Wednesday, President Evo Morales, a former coca grower, signed the bill into law allowing farmers to plant up to 54,000 acres in coca — up from 29,000 under the previous legislation. Bolivia is the world’s third largest cocaine producer after Colombia and Peru. Once the new law goes in effect, Morales’ government has said it wants to “industrialize” the added production, but analysts and critics fear it will be diverted to cocaine production. Opposition lawmakers are planning to sue to block the law, calling it unconstitutional because it breaches international treaties. They said it would turn Bolivia into a...

    It wasn't a big surprise to see Latin America's lefty states whining and licking their wounds after the ignominious exit of Evo Morales after a long near-dictatorship in Bolivia.  The Bolivian tradition is to boot them out when they do something egregious, and this guy committed naked electoral fraud in the October 20 election for his fourth term.  The protests were huge and fierce, the United Nations and the Organization of American States certified it all as fraud, and then the cops and the military joined the protesters.  That left Morales with no power and, as of yesterday, out on his ear.  It was cut and dried.  Good...
