Nov 11 - 5 Fast Facts About the Military Coup in Bolivia and What You Can Do|
news | By RAZAH CUTS
Despite what the mainstream media headlines would have you believe, a coup is underway in Bolivia.
The United States is currently backing a military coup against Bolivias first indigenous president, Evo Morales, who recently won re-election. Bolivia has enjoyed relative calm during the length of Morales presidency which began in January 2006. In 2008, Morales expelled the U.S. ambassador and counter-narcotics agents. The two countries have not had an ambassadorial relationship since 2009.
Despite what the mainstream media headlines would have you believe, a military coup is underway in Bolivia. Morales was forced to step down in an attempt to avert further violence and destruction at the ends of the violent right-wing opposition.
Sunday nights headlines read:
Bolivian Leader Evo Morales Steps Down
Bolivian President Evo Morales steps down following accusations of election fraud
President of Bolivia steps down amid allegations of election rigging
Bolivias Morales resigns amid scathing election report, rising protests
Bolivian President Evo Morales resigns amid fraud poll protests
Nowhere in these headlines do we see the word coup or any mention of the history or the violence at the hands of the opposition that includes the burning of a governors home, the dragging of a mayor through the streets after her hair was cut off and her body painted red, and most recently the destruction of Evo Morales home.
Heres what you need to know:
1. Evo Morales won re-election on October 20th
A Bolivian court gave Morales the green light to run for a fourth term as president after opponents said doing so would be unconstitutional. Bolivians went to the polls on October 20, only weeks ago, to select their president. When all was said and done, Morales walked away with 47.1 percent of the vote while his main opponent, who came in second place, had 36.5 percent of the vote. Because Morales secured more than 40 percent and had higher than a 10-point margin over the runner up, in accordance with the rules, a first-round win was declared with no need for a runoff.
2. Reports of election fraud are unfounded
Even before the election was concluded, Mesa declared that he would not accept the results if Morales were declared the winner.
The following day, after much outrage from the opposition, the Organization of American States (OAS) released a statement. While the statement did say that the elections took place in a peaceful and orderly manner, the OAS expressed its deep concern and surprise at the drastic and hard-to-explain change in the trend of the preliminary results revealed after the closing of the polls.
The statement failed to include any actual evidence or data.
Prior to that statement, Senator Marco Rubio tweeted the following false information:
The main criticism of the OAS is the significant increase in votes for Morales that came in near the end of the count. While this can sometimes be a red flag, simply looking at the voting records shows that it is a result of the geography of Bolivia. Morales has more support in poor and rural areas, areas whose votes often come in later.
The Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR) said in a statement on Friday:
Statistical analysis of election returns and tally sheets from Bolivias October 20 elections shows no evidence that irregularities or fraud affected the official result that gave President Evo Morales a first-round victory.
It should be noted that the OAS was created by a U.S. official and anti-communist leaders from South America in 1948 with the sole purpose of disputing democratic elections in which a communist or socialist candidate wins. In effect, the OAS is an agent of regime change, often driven by US imperialism.
In 2000, the OAS flip-flopped on Haitis national election, first declaring it a great success before changing their position, paving the way for Washingtons regime change efforts of 2000-04 that resulted in the murder of thousands of people. The OAS then interfered in Haitis 2010 election by literally reversing the results.
Secretary General of the OAS, Luis Almagro, recognized the U.S.-backed opposition leader and self declared interim president of Venezuela in January, just prior to the failed coup attempt.
3. Carlos Mesa has a cozy relationship with the U.S.
Morales main opponent, Carlos Mesa, served as president of Bolivia from 2003-2005. U.S. hostilities against Bolivia have increased steadily since Mesa left office and he is Washingtons preferred candidate.
Government cables released by WikiLeaks reveal communications between Mesa and U.S. officials.
4. 50-70% of the worlds lithium supply is found in Bolivia
Some have called Bolivia the Saudi Arabia of lithium. The global demand for the alkali metal has steadily increased as technology such as cell phones, laptops, and hybrid cars have become woven into the fabric of our everyday lives. And the demand for it isnt expected to slow anytime soon.
Bolivia has invested significantly in lithium mining in the country with Morales having once said:
With the exploitation of lithium in a 400 sq km area, well have enough to maintain ourselves for a century.
But those same salt flats are also a major nature reserve that includes flamingos, cacti, geysers, and hot springs. Thousands of tourists visit the area each year to enjoy the hot springs.
Foreign companies have repeatedly expressed interest in Bolivias mining operations, but Morales has been understandably wary of foreign intervention. Bolivia has been left one of the poorest countries in Latin America despite possessing large reserves of oil and gas as well as the worlds largest silver mine.
As the world attempts to transition to greener fuels, it should come as no surprise that eyes are on Bolivia and its massive lithium supply.
5. Evo Morales opposes U.S. imperialism in Latin America
And most importantly, Evo Morales has been in direct opposition of U.S. imperialism throughout his entire presidency. In 2016, Morales opened an anti-imperialist military academy in direct opposition to U.S. policies and military involvement throughout Latin America, to counter the influence of the School of the Americas. Morales said:
If the empire teaches domination of the world from its military schools, we will learn from this school to free ourselves from imperial oppression.
We want to build anti-colonial and anti-capitalist thinking with this school that binds the armed forces to social movements and counteracts the influence of the School of the Americas that always saw the indigenous as internal enemies.
Morales is not shy when it comes to his criticism of the United States, having stated that the U.S. promotes global terrorism through military interventions.
At a United Nations Security Council meeting, he explained:
I would like to say to you, frankly and openly here, that in no way is the United States interested in upholding democracy. If such were the case it would not have financed coups detat and supported dictators. It would not have threatened with military intervention democratically elected governments as it has done with Venezuela. The United States could not care less about human rights or justice. If this were the case, it would have signed the international conventions and treaties that have protected human rights.It would not have threatened the investigation mechanism of the International Criminal Court, nor would it promote the use of torture, nor would it have walked away from the Human Rights Council. And nor would it have separated migrant children from their families, nor put them in cages.
Morales went on to say, Each time that the United States invades nations, launches missiles, or finances regime change, it does so behind a propaganda campaign which incessantly repeats the message that it is acting in the course of justice, freedom and democracy, in the cause of human rights or for humanitarian reasons.
And in 2017, Morales declared that Bolivia had total independence from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank.
Such a move automatically makes a country a potential target for regime change efforts.
Many leaders from around the world have described the situation in Bolivia as a military coup.
If it looks like a coup and it smells like a coup.. its probably a coup. So what can we do about it?
There are many ways to challenge the mainstream narrative and theyre all important. Be sure to share independent media articles like this one, read the news coming from both sides of the conflict and verify their sources, talk to your friends and family about whats happening, and learn more about the history of U.S. imperialism in Latin America.
As news of the violent military coup spreads, supporters of Evo Morales, the people of Bolivia, and democracy are standing up to say #HandsOffBolivia. Attend an emergency protest planned in one of the following cities:
Washington DC | 11/11 at 12 PM 1:30 PM
New York City | 11/11 at 4 PM
San Francisco | 11/11 at 5:30 PM 6:30PM
Philadelphia | 11/11 at 4 PM 6PM
Los Angeles | 11/11 at 4:30PM 6:30PM
Baltimore | 11/11 at 5 PM 6 PM
Miami | 11/11 at 4 PM 6 PM
Albuquerque | 11/11 at 4 PM 6 PM
London | 11/11 at 5 PM 8 PM UTC
Toronto | 11/12 at 6 PM 7:30 PM
Boston | 11/12 at 5:30 PM 7 PM
London | 11/13 at 6:30 PM 8 PM
Las Vegas | 11/16 at 10 AM
Boston | 11/16 at 1 PM 2 PM
Manchester | 11/16 at 12PM 3PM UTC
Washington DC | 11/16 at 12PM | White House
Attending a protest and spreading the truth is one way to help resist the coup in Bolivia. If enough of us stand up to challenge the mainstream narrative, the damage can still be undone.

Do you know where those come from? Her fuking house, they make that in the crib! You dont know whats in there." Then passed me 2 dollars and told me avoid eating off the streets. My big homie was right though, i was hella embarrassed but n*gga was right. Those things are not safe to consume.
Nov 11 - vitamin e acetate....caused the vaping illness epidemic|
news | By messy marv stan
https://hightimes.com/new .. ing-illnesses/
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed on Friday that the additive vitamin E acetate is the likely cause of the nations rash of lung injuries caused by vaping. Dr. Anne Schuchat, the principal deputy director of the CDC, told reporters that the additive, which received early attention as a potential cause of e-cigarette or vaping product useassociated lung injury (EVALI), was found in the lung tissue of patients by investigators.
For the first time, we have detected a potential toxin of concern: vitamin E acetate, Schuchat said. The CDC referred to the discovery as a breakthrough.
The investigators had tested fluid samples in a study of 29 EVALI patients from 10 states and had found vitamin E acetate in all 29 cases. No other oils, including plant oils or mineral oil, were found in the samples.
These findings provide direct evidence of vitamin E acetate at the primary site of injury within the lung, Schuchat added.
Vitamin E acetate is a synthetic form of the nutrient that is commonly used in nutritional supplements, foods, and personal care products. When taken orally or applied topically, it is generally considered safe. When inhaled, however, vitamin E acetate can coat the lungs, causing difficulty breathing and other serious health effects.
Unlicensed THC Products Under Scrutiny
In September, the New York Department of Health announced that it had discovered vitamin E acetate in nearly all of the cannabis vape cartridges a*sociated with the vaping illnesses. On Friday, the Cannabis Trade Federation urged legal cannabis businesses to avoid the additive.
While it still appears these health incidents are primarily a*sociated with the use of illicit THC vape products, we urge members of the regulated cannabis industry to be vigilant and review all of their vaping products to ensure they are free of vitamin E acetate, the statement reads.
The industry group also urged officials in states that have regulated cannabis for medical or recreational use to ensure that vitamin E acetate is clearly prohibited by state regulations from being used in any cannabis products meant to be inhaled.
This health crisis and the recent breakthrough in the investigation underscore the importance of existing state cannabis regulations, as well as the need for strict cannabis regulation at both the state and federal levels, added the CTF.
Also on Friday, the CDC revealed in a separate report that the Illinois Department of Health had found that a majority of the EVALI patients in that state had said that they had used THC cartridges that had been purchased on the street or from friends rather than from licensed dispensaries.
Health officials also compared patient data with the responses of 4,000 individuals who said they vaped but had not become ill. Among them, 94% said that they had only vaped nicotine products.
Dr. Jennifer Layden, the chief medical officer for Illinois said that those who were sick were roughly nine times more likely to obtain the THC-containing products from informal sources, such as a dealer, off the street or from a friend, compared to survey respondents.
Patients treated for EVALI were also eight times more likely than healthy respondents to report using the THC cartridges sold under the counterfeit brand Dank Vapes.
Although the CDC says it has confirmed that vitamin E acetate is causing at least some cases of the mysterious lung illnesses, they can not rule out the possibility of other causes. As of Thursday, the federal agency says that there have been 2,051 cases of EVALI. Of those, 39 patients have died
Nov 11 - Bernie Sanders Becomes 1st 2020 Presidential Contender to Criticize Bolivian Coup|
news | By RAZAH CUTS
"I am very concerned about what appears to be a coup in Bolivia, where the military, after weeks of political unrest, intervened to remove President Evo Morales."
Sen. Bernie Sanders on Monday became the first 2020 Democratic presidential candidate to speak out against Sunday's military coup in Bolivia which saw that country's President Evo Morales forced to resign before going into hiding.
"I am very concerned about what appears to be a coup in Bolivia, where the military, after weeks of political unrest, intervened to remove President Evo Morales," Sanders tweeted. "The U.S. must call for an end to violence and support Bolivia's democratic institutions."
The Vermont senator's comments came after a day of mounting pressure to speak out from his left-wing grassroots movement. Earlier Monday, as Common Dreams reported, Sanders supporter Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) condemned the coup in no uncertain terms.
"The people of Bolivia deserve free, fair, and peaceful elections," said Ocasio-Cortez, "not violent seizures of power."
Sanders' expression of support for Morales was welcomed by supporters.
"By far the biggest difference between Bernie and the rest of the Democratic candidates is how well versed he is in and how much he cares about the type of international left issues that, say, The Nation writes a lot about," said reporter Matthew Zeitlin.
Earlier Monday, Sanders released a new plan to help veterans; held a town hall with veterans in Des Moines, Iowa; and published at Jewish Currents an essay on combatting anti-Semitism.
