GONZALO LIRA—Autogolpe in Spanish means “self-coup”, which is a political maneuver when the legitimate leadership of a country carries out a coup against itself in order to remain in power. The putschist gang literally overthrows the legitimate and established ways of acquiring power under some pretext: foreign threat, internal threat, or major disturbances (the latter usually manufactured by the putschist themselves), and so on. Gonzalo is betting that the WOKE imperialists will attempt such a coup in 2024.
EDWARD CURTIN—Even before he became president, in 1957, then Senator Kennedy gave a speech in the U.S. Senate that sent shock waves throughout Washington, D.C. and around the world. He came out in support of Algerian independence from France and African liberation generally and against colonial imperialism. As chair of the Senate’s African Subcommittee in 1959, he urged sympathy for African independence movements as part of American foreign policy. He believed that continued support of colonial policies would only end in more bloodshed because the voices of independence would not be denied, nor should they be.
