Looking at Belarus for answers

Freedoms are only granted at the whim of government and only to those who accept the status quo.

This is a true tale of the political activities in a country most Americans couldn’t find on a map if its location were printed in the margins. In fact, while this dictatorship is counted among the leading 100 economies in the world, (at 72) it is a socialist welfare state by every practical definition. Freedoms are only granted at the whim of government and only for those who accept the status quo. Sound familiar?

With that said, this is the report of events surrounding a political opponent to the dictator in the 2020 presidential election. The ‘opposition’ candidate had a seemingly insurmountable lead of more than 60% of the votes. Although the incumbent had ‘won’ every election over the past 26 years, it was quite clear the country was supporting a change of direction away from the established leaders in favor of an outsider.

With victory clearly apparent, the opposition candidate began to organize a transition team preparing for a peaceful transition of power. Then suddenly the “official results” were certified and the incumbent government was declared the winner. It seems the government officials charged with counting votes decided to accept exit polls results instead of bothering to actually count the votes. Protests erupted. The opposition candidate was accused of organizing the riots. The 7 members of the transition team were all either arrested or fled into exile for safety. The opposition candidate was “arrested” by masked agents, held incommunicado and then escorted out of the country to Lithuania from where a sham video was arranged in which the candidate admitted the “exit polls” were accurate and the incumbent had won.

Supporters who clearly understood the election results were fabricated protested and were arrested, tortured and held without trials – and continue to be. One trial was held for a key leader of the opposition campaign and on September 11, of 2021, this key figure was sentenced to 11 years in a penal colony for her activities against the government.

The opposition leader is now in exile. Many of the protesters remain in prison without trials, without clean livings conditions, and are thought to be subjected to torture for refusing to admit their crimes against the government. Sound familiar?

This is the story of the 2020 election in the dictatorship of Belarus. It is worth understanding these events because by changing just a few variables it could be the story of the 2020 election in the United States and the protests that followed. Regardless of which candidate you supported, 2020 was the most questionable election in American history. The disturbing parallel to the Belarus dictator’s government attacks on opposition party leaders to the Washington establishment following many of the same tactics as the dictator of Belarus is quite frightening to report. Arresting opposition party leaders, incarcerating activists who openly supported the challenger’s campaign and labeling any challenge to the establishment’s vote count as nonsense or worse is exactly and undeniably what happened in both countries.

Lukashenko party officials actually declared him the winner based on “exit polls” and saw no reason for further investigation into accusations of fraud. Sound familiar? They say politics makes strange bed fellows (no pun intended toward ,,, ,,, well, to many to mention here) but in the case of Belarus, even George Soros tweeted on August 17, 2021 that the 2020 election in Belarus was “stolen.” Is that not what many have said of the 2020 election in the Unites States?

Soros has also implored the United States and European Union to “respond more firmly” against the illegitimate president of Belarus. But it might be noteworthy here to mention that in 1997 the New York Times reported the Lukashenko government had fined the Soros Foundation operating in Belarus some three million dollars for conducting activities related to civil unrest and protests against the government. Following an investigation lasting from 1997 to 2001, the U.S. Department of State published a lengthy report on the activities of the Soros Foundation in Belarus in which conflicts between the government of Lukashenko and Soros Foundations were documented.

Having its every move monitored by the government, the Soros Foundation changed tactics and the Soros funded Open Society Foundation began supporting organizations which profess to work on behalf of human rights; although their Marxist ideology is anything but supportive of human rights. Small groups such as Abolish Frontex became headliners as Soros poured millions of dollars into the internet in Belarus and across Europe. The Marxist messages accused Europe of being founded on “colonialism, slavery and exploitation of minorities.” Sound familiar? While Abolish Frontex gained more attention by aligning and supporting the LGBT community with the “Queer Tour” through Europe, the plight of the citizens of Belarus worsened according to a Soros tweet in August of 2021. Meanwhile the creation of class and race warfare was advanced even more successfully by media covering the migration of middle-eastern refugees overwhelming many European borders.

Migrations of illegals supported by left leaning organizations claiming to be interested in human rights while the quality of life for citizens declined. Sound familiar?

And so it is that the activities of a dictatorship in a small country in the shadow of Russian tanks on the border might not have made the news much in America. But it would seem to those of us paying attention to ‘the deep state’ in Washington, that such activities are perhaps being replicated in what would be the the greatest coups in the history of the world. Sound like a problem?
