Another American "success" story.

In Guatemala, a judge has ordered that former Vice President Roxana Baldetti must remain in prison while her corruption trial takes place. The ruling comes on the heels of the Guatemalan Supreme Court’s decision Tuesday to lift the immunity from prosecution for President Otto Pérez Molina, clearing the way for his impeachment. The court passed the impeachment recommendation along to Congress. A general strike has been called in Guatemala for today. We are joined by Allan Nairn, longtime journalist who has covered Guatemala since the 1980s.

You can probably guess America, and Israel, armed and backed this gennocide of the Mayans. They supported the country's oligarchs as they decimated their opposition.

if Trump wins the Repiglican nomination? I have spent most of the past hour listening to his speech. This is getting uncomfortably not funny. He has his scapegoats lined up, his bullshit keeps converting low intelligence people, and I can see him going up against Bernie. Can you imagine the stakes of that contest?
