Read two different versions of “the news” related to the (just-)rejected peace agreement in Colombia. The agreement, negotiated in Havana with the support and assistance of Barack Hussein Obama and his surrogate, John Kerry, UN SecGen Ban Ki-Moon, Raul Castro, and a cast of other characters, was rejected by the Colombian people today. Apparently they don’t like the idea of giving significant immunity to rapists, mass-murderers, and other such folks that fought for the Marxist FARC for over ½ century, nor do they take very kindly to the idea of also giving them seats at the government table. Perhaps 220,000 dead won’t end up being the final death toll now, unfortunately, but at least there seems to be some fortitude remaining in those that outlived the Marxist terrorists that tried to take over their country despite the efforts of the Castro brothers, Venezuela, and our own John Swiftboat Kerry (and his sidekick Barack). Here are two different stories about the current state of affairs in Colombia. Note the photo of Kerry at the top of this first story, and when it was taken, with whom, and why he was there:
Then there’s the NYT version of the actual peace agreement rejection:
Apparently one nation’s electorate is intelligent enough to come up with a principled decision…. Perhaps the older ones still remember what Marxism is really all about.

Well done for Colombia. They stopped the communist.October 3, 2016 at 1:16 pm #50078
Don’t forget, Freedom, there is a fundamental and crucial difference between communism and Marxism. Communism is a theoretical socio-economic system. Marxists sell you communism, but deliver violent, murderous totalitarianism (they spell it out in the last chapter of the Communist Manifesto (only 16 sentences long). And FARC is a Marxist/Stalinist organization. Its current leader has gone by at least three names, with his nom de guerre being “Timochenko,” quite unlike his previous two Hispanic names. He was trained in Cuba and Russia. The Colombian people learned the hard way (but sadly only a bit more than half of them learned, based on the extremely close referendum vote).

GS, As a born Cuban which came to America at age 4(am 59 now) I have learned one thing. You can call it Marxist, Stalinist, Communist, Socialist or the new name Progressive but they all have one goal which is total control of the people, less freedoms, government control of everything including food, water and properties.
Like in Cuba it doesn’t matter if you own a farm or not because the government will take control of all the food you produce. Food is control for them. So the real name fro all of them is totalitarianism or dictatorship.October 4, 2016 at 4:00 pm #50081
Interesting take on this in Fear the Walking Dead. The character who says his father was a fool. If the country elects Hillary it will be giving Bill the rapist immunity and a seat at the government table. Obama doesn’t represent anybody that wants peace. He’s in it for the power. He buys and sells people. The peace treaty would be absolutely no good.October 4, 2016 at 5:51 pm #50082
Actually, I suspect the peace treaty would have been just what the doctor ordered, as evidenced by Kerry’s continued involvement starting with Daniel Ortega as shown in the lead photo of one of the articles above, and his attendance at the announcement of the treaty itself, as well as ongoing involvement with the Castro brothers and others that helped in the negotiation process. IF the treaty had passed (or gets crammed down the Colombian people’s throats anyway), it included serious amnesty for some of the most murderous of the Marxist revolutionaries, and inclusion IN the government for some of the FARC leaders. Given that the previous Colombian president, now a legislator if I remember correctly, was the apparent hero in the voting upset, one might conclude that the current president’s loyalties lean far to the opposite direction – he gave away the farm in that treaty. Dr. Obama ought to LOVE it.
