Macri and the US Involvement in the Bolivian Coup Starting to Emerge

20/11 – Macri and the US Involvement in the Bolivian Coup Starting to Emerge

On November 18, which is a holiday in Argentina, thousands of people occupied the Plaza de Mayo in Buenos Aires against the coup d’état in Bolivia and in solidarity with the Chilean people, paying tribute to the victims and the resistance of the people, while evidence and condemnation continue to emerge about the complicity of the government of Mauricio Macri, and especially of the governor of Jujuy, Gerardo Morales with the coup plotters and with the U.S. officials who support and direct them.

Macri, his followers and the media in line with Washington continue to maintain that there is no coup d’état in Bolivia, an attitude that was rejected by the demonstrators in the communiqué they read, signed by social, political, humanitarian and Bolivian organizations and Chileans residing in Buenos Aires.

The complicity of Morales is becoming more evident every day as documentation from Bolivia, as well as from Argentine and Brazilian investigators, are exposing the connection which also accuses Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro of being in on the collaboration.

According to new revelations, Mauricio Macri’s government knew about Luis Fernando Camacho’s coup decision six days in advance. The report refers to a meeting that the right-wing businessman had with diplomatic representatives of the consulates of other countries located in Santa Cruz de la Sierra on November 4, as the well-informed website “The Rocket to the Moon” directed by journalist Horacio Verbistky points out.


This article delivers so much information to research. So much new information it's amazing. Much of it has surfaced briefly from time to time, but not with context. Hoping so hard I can find more in English on every bit of it. The source is Swedish.

It was NEVER mentioined Ivanka actually went to Jujuy, although we did hear rumors long ago when George W. Bush's daughter, Jenna, went to Paraguay.

1. US Again Complicit in an Illegal Coup, This Time in Bolivia

US Again Complicit in an Illegal Coup, This Time in Bolivia
December 3, 2019

Washington is upholding a sordid tradition of meddling in the political and economic affairs of Latin American countries, writes Marjorie Cohn.

Once again, the United States is complicit in an illegal coup d’état in Latin America, this time in Bolivia. On Nov. 10, a right-wing, anti-indigenous group seized power after the Bolivian military’s removal of President Evo Morales, who had declared victory in the Oct. 20 presidential election.

The United States’ fingerprints are all over the coup. Advisers from the U.S. Southern Command have been stationed on Bolivia’s border with Argentina, Ivanka Trump made a surprising visit to an Argentine province near the Bolivian border in September, the pro-U.S. Organization of American States (OAS) cast unfounded doubt on Morales’s election victory, and the U.S.’s National Endowment for Democracy provided suspicious grants to Bolivia.

At least 32 people have been killed and hundreds injured since the coup began. Sacha Llorenti, Bolivian ambassador to the United Nations, told Democracy Now!, “We are going through not just a coup d’état, but a violent one.” Indeed, it has resulted in “the rise of a far-right regime of terror,” professor Gabriel Hetland wrote in The Washington Post.

Morales — Bolivia’s first indigenous leader in a country where 65 percent of the people are indigenous — received 10 percent more votes than Carlos Mesa, the second-place candidate who has close ties to the U.S. government. Mesa was in regular communication with U.S. officials who were trying to destabilize Morales, U.S. government cables published by WikiLeaks reveal.

. . .

The Nov. 10 military coup led to the forced resignation of Morales, who received asylum in Mexico. Right-wing politician Jeanine Añez declared herself interim president, and Donald Trump immediately recognized her illegitimate claim to the presidency. Añez then issued a decree immunizing the military from criminal liability “for carrying out necessary actions in their legitimate defense while performing their constitutional duties.” Morales supporters accused Añez of giving soldiers “carte blanche” to shoot demonstrators. Bolivia’s human rights ombudsman and reporters have documented widespread injuries and fatalities from gunshots.

2. Ivanka Trump welcomed by Faurie, Governor Morales as she lands in Jujuy

ARGENTINA | 05-09-2019 10:27

The daughter and advisor of US President Donald Trump landed in Jujuy late Wednesday night ahead of a whistestop tour promoting women in the workplace and female empowerment.

Senior White House adviser Ivanka Trump arrived in San Salvador de Jujuy at around 11pm last night, accompanied by US Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan.

Trump, the so-called 'First Daughter', will attend a series of events and meetings with officials focusing on issues that make it difficult for women in developing countries to prosper financially, including lack of access to credit and limits on employment.

. . .

Sullivan and Ivanka Trump are making diplomatic visits to Colombia, Paraguay and Argentina this week. In Cúcuta, they met with Julio Borges, an aide to Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó, who has been recognised by the US and more than 50 other countries as Venezuela’s rightful head of state.


So who knew this nimrod was conducting so much diplomatic "bidness" for the U.S. citizens without our knowledge?

3. How thoughtful! The gov. of Jujuy, Gerardo Camacho wanted the record cleared:

Google translated:

It is false that Gerardo Morales traveled on a plane with the Bolivian leader Luis Fernando Camacho
A video of the governor of Jujuy is circulating, getting on a plane to Bolivia with whom, they assure, is the leader of the Santa Cruz Civic Committee of that country. Actually, the man accompanying him is a custodian.

A video showing the governor of Jujuy, Gerardo Morales, boarding a plane of the Argentine Air Force circulates on social networks along with the claim that he was accompanied by the Bolivian leader Luis Fernando Camacho. But this is false: the man is one of the custodians of the provincial president. The entries, which have been circulating since at least last November 12, have been shared more than 11,000 times.

The video went viral on Facebook (see here , here , here , here and here ) and on Twitter (see here , here and here ). "#GolpeEnBolivia The governor of Jujuy, Gerardo Morales, with Luis Fernando Camacho (in a light brown jacket), boarding a plane of the Argentine Air Force. The Argentine government is an active accomplice to the coup d'état in Bolivia ”( sic ), reads one of the posts on Facebook. The disinformation was also circulated among WhatsApp users, who sent it to the Reverse number (+54 9 11 3182-3655) for verification.

Screenshot taken on November 20, 2019 of a Facebook post

The viral sequence, in reality, is a cut from the live broadcast made by the Governor of Jujuy on his Facebook account on September 4 at 8:56 AM from the Argentine city of El Carmen . In the publication of this transmission, Morales commented: “We are traveling to the neighboring country in a Hercules C-130 plane. We are going to carry out the replacement of firefighters from Jujuy: we took brigadistas and brought the 26 heroes who were helping to fight the fire [N. de la R .: In the Bolivian Chiquitanía, a plain located in that country] for a couple of weeks. "

At the beginning of the complete sequence, it can be seen that the man in the beige jacket walks behind the governor and the other authorities in the direction of the plane, to finally board the aircraft along with the rest of the procession.

The same day, at 3:29 p.m., the governor published another video with his presentation at the official event in Bolivia and shared images in the stories of his Instagram account. Governor Morales' trip was also recorded on the Twitter account of the Ministry of the Environment of Jujuy, where it is stated that the objective was to “complete the replacement of personnel from the Forest Fire Brigade and the Government of Jujuy Firefighters who were working in the brother country ”. In another tweet from the same account, it is detailed that, in addition to the governor, the Minister of Environment of Jujuy, María Inés Zigarán , and the provincial Minister of Security, Ekel Meyer , participated in the event .

Governor Morales' visit to Bolivia and the replacement of brigadistas who collaborated in fighting the fires that affected the Bolivian Chiquitanía were also covered by the media of both countries (see here and here ).

The man in beige

Maximiliano Quinteros, director of Press and Media of the Jujuy Government, was on that flight and confirmed to Reverso that the man who appears in the video is not Camacho , but a custodian of Governor Morales. Quinteros did not agree to disclose the identity of this person, since, he assured, the man is "very distressed" by the viral publications.

The provincial official sent images of the custodian in other circumstances in which it can be seen that it is the same person. The photos were taken last August, during the Jujeño Exodus Day event , where he was part of the honor guard.

Quinteros told Reverso that he and the Government Press team were in charge of recording the videos broadcast on social networks and covering the governor's trip to Santa Cruz de la Sierra, in Bolivia on September 4 last . " We arrived at approximately 10 in the morning and we were in the COE [Emergency Operating Committee] in Santa Cruz de la Sierra. There we participated in the tribute [to the brigadistas] and we went to lunch. Then, the governor participated in a meeting with the government minister of Evo Morales [Carlos Romero Bonifaz] and, at 6 in the afternoon, we started the return trip. Then we waited for Ivanka Trump to arrive, who landed that night in Jujuy, "said Quinteros.

The official also sent a photo of the interior of the plane in which the man in the beige jacket is seen sitting next to the brigadistas and other officials of the provincial government, in fourth place on the right. A comparison of this photo with one of Luis Fernando Camacho shows that they are two different people.

Pictures, etc.


How many heads of state take custodians with them on airplanes? Aren't there any custodians where they are going?

Seems as if the story which circulated got them pretty whipped up into a froth!
