The spies who spun me

USAID will not tell us who they are funding in Bolivia (tip:BoRev), but "USAID 'is looking to hire a PR firm to tout its work in Bolivia as diplomatic relations have strained with the left-leaning South American country,' reports O'Dwyer's. USAID will pay $500,000 for the first year of an up to three year contract, 'to highlight its emergency supply efforts, opportunities for the poor, and other economic and social welfare programs it has funded in Bolivia.'"

All the PR wizardry in the world will not hide the fact that USAID is funding fascism. Eva Golinger has already documented it in two books about Venezuela. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if she and Jeremy Bigwood are now compiling similar data and FOIA requests on Bolivia, too.

Genie's out of the bottle, USAID. You cannot stuff the toothpaste back into the tube!

U$500,000 buys "renta dignidad" pensions for 180 people for 12 months.

In the US as part of the elections, they are talking about putting lipstick on a pig. It applies to USAID.

This is a really good blog.

Pfffft, Otto--little old ladies can't be motivated to overthrow a legitimate government (and what's worse, they could die at any time!)

The Santa Cruz chapter of the Hitlerjugend, on the other hand...
