Protesters stormed and set fire to Paraguay’s Congress on Friday after the Senate secretly voted for a constitutional amendment that would allow President Horacio Cartes to run for re-election.

The country’s constitution has prohibited re-election since it was passed in 1992 after a brutal dictatorship fell in 1989.

“A coup has been carried out. We will resist and we invite the people to resist with us,” said Senator Desiree Masi from the opposition Progressive Democratic Party.

    the intelligence community and the MSM are on the same team.lets hope and pray there are many white hats(honest freedom thinking) people inside these agencies .i have a hunch there is..they are much smarter than these vampire maggots from the borg collective. trump being a freedom fighter.and vastly smarter than these little maggot slick lawyer types who want to rule the planet..there maybe one hell of alot going on behind the scenes .does anyone think things are as they appear out here in the MSM controlled masses.??

    Well not surprised the Progressive/Communist Left is everywhere today and papers across the globe talk of it. They are getting more violent in America as I type and like Newt said the situation here is serious, Trump is in a dangerous situation, needs to be careful with the Russian accusations. Was Flynn who is a Democrat in like Flynn (works for me) on the Trump Team for the purpose of setting the stage for Impeachment? He is wanting to get back into the spotlight etc.the more he talks in the closed hearings, the deeper the hole and why seek immunity? Just plead the 5th. We also know that the agencies can mimic Russian hacking or anyone they want.

    I have learned something these years of studying the filthy party of the Left, they lie because they have to as Reid said, he did what he had to lying about Romney’s taxes, they will kill or sure seems like it when people who are going to talk about things they don’t want out, those wanting to sing about Hillary fell this election, 6 of them, they will put out FAKE news and Mantras, they will stick to it even if exposed and sure seems the CIA and FBI etc are the Keepers of Deep State the way they worked and distorted truth to fit O’s needs, that these people don’t continue down a road like Russia/Trump, put this much energy into it unless a rainbow waiting for them at the other end and they will use the pot of gold to pay off anyone.

    Wait for the finale should be good and hot.

      Most do nut understand what you are putting out, the corruption has been here for decades and who knows how far back it really goes .

      • Tiger

        Appears we can put a real finger on 40 plus years according to experts looking at the situation.

        My guess been here since after WWII when Nazi run out of Europe and America, remnants stayed and began working right away back to their plans.

    This is what our liberals would call a “peaceful transfer of power”. (Look at the fires and riots in DC, NYC, CA, etc)

    “Citizen Revolts” accomplish what? Kent State University comes to mind. 60’s Berkley Student sit-ins also come to mind…resulting in 21st Century “institutionalized Collectivism.” An Article V Convention of The States (or Con-Con) is just another wrinkle on the “National Popular Vote Movement” now underway in Arizona’s legislature and several other states. One learns quickly, in local or national politics…a vacuum created allows for “unintended consequences” as has happened in USA’s political landscape ever since 1900, with President Woodrow Wilson’s “tearing-up of USA’s Constitution.” Anarchy and something “quite ugly” will emerge making USA something of another “Third rate Nation’ like so many Latin American neighbors to the south of our borders. Think about this and what “one wishes for.” There is NOT ONE SINGLE AMERICAN “MIND” (in modern, recent, history)… able to pit themselves against one ( Let alone 56) or Our Founding Fathers!!! Let this sink in, Pilgrim! Period. Pray. Amen God Bless America and ALL Americans. Read a Bible. NKJV. “But those who turn to crooked ways the LORD will banish with the evildoers. Peace Be Upon Israel.” (Psalm 125:5)

    This news report has nothing to do with us. However, most of South America is socialistic, which is just a step away from totalitarianism. There are a lot more “hot spots” in the world besides North Korea and Iran! Almost all of South America is a “hot spot.” No they don’t have lots of missiles nor are they nuclear. What they do have is LOADS of cocaine that is being shipped into the USA. Canada and the rest of the world. Lots of drug cartels and uncontrolled governments. Central America has not been stable since the 1970’s or earlier. Salvador is still a mess so is Honduras, Guatemala is not good either.

    I do wonder how We the People would feel if our US Senate made a secret vote to rescind the term limit for the President? Especially if this was done when Obama was President???

  • geraldcuvillier

    I remember back in the 70s when Russian tanks attacked their Parliament building that the same thing needs to happen here. Our federal government is so corrupt only a total cleansing will correct it.

    • maxx

      I’m with you on the total cleansing of the U.S. Congress since both alleged parties sitting there are of the same mindset. They joined forces in the 1960’s when the Repuklicans joined the “social engineering” agenda that worked so well for the democommies in terms of elections and court system control. It’s not the Repuklicans vs Demmocommies it is Congress vs we the people. We the people need to start playing “hardball” with the despots in Congress. Demanding term limits isn’t working. We need to call for an Article V Convention of States which is the only solution left us by the Founders to deal with a rogue government. All politicians oppose such a convention because they know “they will be the losers” not because it is dangerous. They know it will give the states back their Tenth Amendment powers.

    • goldie

      Sounds like our government needs an enema to get rid of blockages: ‘total cleansing’. I’d say the comparison fits.

  • Pete

    The Progressive/socialists have been dragging around a can of gas and a box of matches ever since November eighth. Trouble is, the swamp is too wet to keep burning every time they try to set it on fire.
