(Bloomberg) — As rioting broke out across Chile in October, President Sebastian Pinera watched his political agenda go up in smoke.
Just 18 months after taking office on promises to expand the private pension system, cut taxes for the rich and clamp down on crime, Pinera saw his legislative plans swept away by the biggest street protests and riots since the return of democracy in 1990.
Every single one of his flagship policies is now being ditched, reversed or revised. Under a new finance minister, the government’s efforts are centered on placating protesters through spending increases, upending election pledges to narrow the fiscal deficit. Pinera’s biggest concession, a plan to rewrite the constitution, was negotiated by lawmakers from almost all the main parties. The president, who has resisted calls to resign, only endorsed it two days later.
“His manifesto and policies are gone, done, finished,” said Javier Sajuria, a senior lecturer from Chile at Queen Mary University in London. “He may just become an administrator for a political agenda set by the parties in congress.”
With two-and-a-half years of his mandate to go, Pinera’s approval rating has slumped to 12%, according to the latest poll from Cadem. Some opposition lawmakers have even started an impeachment process, though it is unlikely to succeed.
Bolivian coup leader Luis Fernando Camacho is a far-right multi-millionaire who arose from fascist movements in the Santa Cruz region, where the US has encouraged separatism. He has courted support from Colombia, Brazil, and the Venezuelan opposition.

When Luis Fernando Camacho stormed into Bolivia’s abandoned presidential palace in the hours after President Evo Morales’s sudden November 10 resignation, he revealed to the world a side of the country
that stood at stark odds with the plurinational spirit its deposed socialist and Indigenous leader had put forward.
With a Bible in one hand and a national flag in the other, Camacho bowed his head in prayer above the presidential seal, fulfilling his vow to purge his country’s Native heritage from government and “return God to the burned palace.”
“Pachamama will never return to the palace,” declared the pastor to his side, referring to the Andean Mother Earth spirit. “Bolivia belongs to Christ.”
A monument of Polish king Jan III Sobieski has been placed on a platform trailer in front of the Papal Window in Kraków.
The monument has been put on temporary display to remind people of its existence after authorities in Vienna withdrew from a long-term plan to erect it on Kahlenberg hill in Vienna, from where the Polish king launched his history-changing attack 336 years ago.
Conservatism Inc.: The Battle for the American Right

It is a political truism that the best way to control the opposition is to lead it oneself, and today’s globalist, anti-white left has succeeded better than perhaps anyone else in history at implementing such a strategy. The rising generation of young white men are subject to a ceaseless campaign of psychological warfare by the dominant elite: taught that their ancestors were monsters and that they themselves are the great, supposedly all-powerful enemies of the rest of oppressed humanity. But when they look around for an alternative to such hostility, they encounter a “conservative” opposition happily chirping about “the record number of new businesses started by black women” and holding “Young Latino Leadership Summits,” while hypocritically telling Whites (and Whites alone) that “ethnonationalism has NO place in the conservative movement.” We will never defeat our declared enemies before we have displaced this sham opposition.
Most of Conservatism Inc. consists of carefully chosen columns written between 2013 and 2018. The pieces are short and punchy, ideal especially for younger readers getting up to speed on America’s current situation and the nationalist response. This material can be difficult to summarize, but highlights include his account of:
- the efforts of our elites to swamp the founding stock population of the US as “indistinguishable from the tactics of a foreign regime waging a war of conquest;
- the lying press “staging the news by covering up obscenities to present an attractive image of young children holding a Mexican flag.”
President Donald Trump told Bill O’Reilly he will designate some Mexican cartels as Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTO). His comments came during an interview released on Tuesday.
“The Mexican drug cartels kill more than 100,000 Americans every year by the importation of dangerous narcotics,” O’Reilly said to President Trump during an interview aired on O’Reilly.com. “Are you going to designate those cartels in Mexico as terror groups?”
“They will be designated … I have offered him (the Mexican president) to let us go in and clean it out,” President Trump responded. “He, so far, has rejected the offer. But at some point, something has to be done.”
CNN’s resident lunatic Brian Stelter went above and beyond his regular whackery Sunday, wheeling out a ‘cult expert’ on his “Reliable Sources” show, who claimed that President Trump is a “destructive cult” leader, a la Jim Jones, and that he is using “mind control” to direct supporters.
Stelter introduced Steven Hassan, author of a book titled The Cult of Trump, claiming that many prominent figures (read ‘CNN talking heads’) have been suggesting recently that Trump’s America first movement is ‘cultish’.

Jews Orchestrating Trump Impeachment Lynching
[November 22] on TruNews, founder and host Rick Wiles presents an in-depth analysis of the Jewish influence that is glaringly evident in the impeachment process of President Donald Trump, using only Jewish publications and websites as confirmation of the conspiracy that abounds in the purge of this administration.

I hope my experiences might help explain why so many people today can’t face the consequences of the tragic history that began that day and have continued to the present, among which are not just the other assassinations of the 1960s but the lies about the attacks of September 11, 2001 and the subsequent endless and murderous “war on terror” with its mind-numbing propaganda and the recent anti-Russia phobia and the blatant celebration of the so-called “deep-state’s” open efforts to overthrow another president, albeit a very different one.
trange Things are happening once again in the ruling circles of the Democratic Party of the United States: The party’s Wise Women (and a couple of Token Men) have decided that Senator Elizabeth Warren, a longtime Republican who supported Hillary Clinton against Bernie Sanders in 2016, will be the next president of the United States.
The US Deep State would be delighted to have Warren and she has already been Blessed and Sanctified by them through the Secular Confirmation of being featured with a fawning cover story profile in “Time” magazine.
However, Warren eerily resembles an ugly, obsolete state-built and miserably designed British airship from 90 years ago: The R101.
The R101 was built to demonstrate the superiority of State Socialism in Britain. It looked ugly. It had enormous gas bags. It flew like the deadweight white elephant it was and it had pathetically underpowered and badly designed engines. All the Progressive Good and Great of Britain’s Labour Party government of the day came on board to celebrate the maiden flight all the way to India.
But the R101 couldn’t even get from London to Paris: It crashed into a low hill in France killing 48 people on board.
Like the R101, Warren and her campaign are badly designed and expend enormous amounts of hot air. Warren presents an ugly personality (insofar as she has one at all) and is utterly inept.
WhatsApp is a “Trojan horse” exploited to snoop on millions of users naive enough to believe that the Facebook-owned messenger differs from its parent company, long beset by privacy scandals, Telegram founder Pavel Durov said.
In a lengthy post on his Telegram channel on Wednesday, Durov took aim at one of his brainchild’s biggest rivals – WhatsApp, the world’s leading messaging app, which became a Facebook subsidiary in 2014 and boasts some 1.5 billion monthly active users.
“Regardless of the underlying intentions of WhatsApp’s parent company, the advice for their end-users is the same: Unless you are cool with all your photos and messages becoming public one day, you should delete WhatsApp from your phone.”
The Russian-born entrepreneur pulled no punches, citing a long record of privacy-related violations by Facebook to back up his case.
