    Democracies cannot apply dictatorships’ despicable judicial rulings

    Editor

    The nonexistence of separation and independence of the branches of government and the rule of law, are features of dictatorships and make it evident as the most palpable proof, their manipulation of justice. The use of judicial prosecution to intimidate, persecute, subordinate and/or eliminate members of the opposition, journalists, businessmen, and society’s civic leaders, is a common practice of 21st Century Socialism’s regimes in Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Bolivia, and Ecuador

    Editor

    Por Andrés Oppenheimer

    El discurso del Estado de la Unión de Trump podría pasar a la historia como un caso de estudio sobre la esquizofrenia política: el presidente habló como un alocado demagogo racista sobre México, y como un estadista súper sensato sobre Venezuela.

  • Se cierran las puertas a la prensa libre en el mundo árabe

    Editor

    El trabajo de los periodistas es hacer preguntas, hablar sobre la verdad del poder y cuestionar la autoridad. Esta siempre ha sido una lucha muy difícil en el Golfo y en el Medio Oriente, pero a esto se comprometió Jamal Khashoggi. Creía con gran coraje y pasión que la manera de lograr un lugar mejor para su país y su sociedad era luchar através de un medio de comunicación independiente y libre. Era un pragmático que entendía bien los límites de hasta dónde podía empujar esa narrativa, pero nunca, nunca dejó de presionar

  • It is not that the dictatorship of Venezuela existed a year ago and has appeared with the hundreds of thousands of forced migrants, or that Nicaragua’s dictatorship suddenly happened with the crimes against the protests started on April 18.
  • La dictadura castrochavista de Bolivia no puede ser encubierta

    Editor

    Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua are really regarded as dictatorships, but the Bolivian dictatorship is flouting its nature in analysis, news and statements. While affirming the consensus on the criminal status of Castro-Diaz Canel, Maduro and Ortega regimes, the dictatorship of the coca grower leader Evo Morales seems unnoticed
