The Peace of God to all that belong to the Light
Dear Readers,

Unfortunately one of the countries that have showed along the last years an exemplar political and economic performance in a region that is crossing a terrible extended crisis ( with crises and instability in Brazil, Peru, Venezuela) could fall in a Historic limbo due to the lack of patriotism of two politicians that have been caught in terrible scandals of corruption and are unable to see the damage that they can cause to their nation if they insist to retain their offices in the Senate of that Nation.

The scandal was uncovered just few days ago by the Colombian Press as well by the various Senators, including the sons of Luis Carlos Galan, a champion of Democracy and a martyr in the fight against corruption and mafias in the war triggered in 1990s when the Drug lords Pablo Escobar-Gaviria and Gonzalo Rodriguez-Gacha tried to force the Colombian State to surrender the rule of Law in that suffered nation.

Colombians must understand that Ivan Duque-Escobar as a protege of Alvaro Uribe-Velez, whose children are accused of a horrendous dirty maneuver evasion of a giant amount of taxes in an operation of transaction of lands in is ineligible for the office of President.

This is the last of many scandals of former President and today Senator Alvaro Uribe-Velez. He has been accused in multiple occasions of to have had ties with the militias of Narcotraficants in the middle Valley of the Magdalena River since 1980s. Three members of his cabinet were sent to prison.

Urbe was recently accused together with Duque in the Supreme court of both have been absent of several sessions in the Senate, more than the ones are allowed by law to retain a seat in the Congress.

The real risk that I can see is that this scandal may undermine terribly the possibility to have in the next term a truly democratic leadership in Colombia.

If Duque insists in continue running for the Presidency with such accusations pointing against his party, he will not develop enough momentum to win the second round.

Duque if passes the first round will prevent that other politicians that are not accused of corruption and have extraordinary nice credentials as for instance Sergio Fajardo, German Vargas-Lleras or Humberto de la Calle may have the opportunity to defeat Gustavo Petro in the second round of the election in June.

Gustavo Petro represent a real danger to have a Populist leader leading Colombia to a land of No man. He is somebody with very similar profile that Hugo Chavez-Frias. His political career show he is an ex-guerrilla member, affiliated to the M19 subversive group for years,A band of ex-militaries with clear fascist, francoist and Peronist sympathies, that supported the campaign and later the claims of electoral fraud of the Dictator General Gustavo Rojas-Pinilla in his attempt to win the election of 1970 in that country.

Also that organization was involved in the kidnapping of dozens of diplomatics in the Dominican Embassy at Bogota in 1980 and also in the siege of the Supreme Court building in Bogota in 1985 that ended in a terrible massacre of the major part of the members of that corporation, as part of their pact with the Medellin Cartier of Pablo Escobar-Gaviria.

The resignation of Ivan Duque and Alvaro Uribe to their offices in the Colombian Congress, as well as the resignation of Duque to the nomination of his party is the only way to prevent to have a terrible fiasco in the final outcome of the Colombian election. The scandals that have exploded my push massively the popular vote to support Gustavo Petro-Urrego and may elect him as President of Colombia.

This same Risk has been perceived by other sensitive people, as for instance the famous Colombian-American Seer Deseret Tavares, but she couldn't understand fully what her Tarot was trying to tell her, it was Not Rodrigo Londono aka Timoshenko, ex Farc member, a Marxist politician who could be elected President, but Gustavo Petro, another ex guerrilla man with Fascist background instead.

Colombia that is the eldest democracy in South America and the third of the Americas may fall in a totalitarian regime if the ambition and egotism of Uribe prevails.

Thanks,

The Angel of Lightness

Its lose lose as per usual for the Colombian people..

My girlfriend is voting for Petro because she likes to hear Petro speak of pipe dreams, for ex: solar panels installed on every Colombian house....pure fantasy..

She sees the situation as " at least someone is talking about change."

Then we have Duque, backed by a man whose notorious rap sheet easily rivals that of the Clinton crime family or Putin..

I shudder to imagine who wins

There has never been a Democracy in Colombia

Well, this moment is not the best one for Colombia, but they are doing very well if you compare with anything that is around them. Now, to be honest this is a very difficult moment for many nations, think that America for instance is not in position to give lessons of moral, decency, democracy or rule of law to anybody else after what we saw in such a corrupt election, from both sides of the partisan politics.

Colombia is in South America the country that more time has preserved its democratic institutions working, only a decade of its History they had their congress closed, ( 1948-1958) so we can say that apart of the last two years of the administration of Mariano Ospina-Perez, Laureano Gomez-Castro and Gustavo Rojas-Pinilla they were not under dictatorship decades as it was the case of Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, Panama, Bolivia, Equator, Chile, Panama and Venezuela.

Only Costa Rica has had more time of Congress open working than Colombia in Latin America, but they also had a terrible civil war in 1940s. If you compare their statistics with for instance Mexico that is a pretty large Hispanic country in our borders, that has experienced dictatorships of decades, a President like Antonio Lopez de Santa Ana reelected 11 times, Porfirio Diaz reelected 5 times, or Juarez that ruled for years as President of Facto without being elected by his people, and an hegemonic party ruling for 71 years in power, well Colombia and Costa Rica are exemplar nations.

Now, definitively who ever is endorsed by Uribe-Velez will be a really weak Candidate to face Gustavo Petro in the election, due to the so grave scandals that surround him, even the lady that is the runner mate of Ivan Duque-Marquez , Mrs Marta Lucia Ramirez, would be in serious trouble to win the second round of the election. Ivan Duque may be deprived of all his political rights if the case in the Supreme court ( State Council) progress for the absences he has had in the sessions of the Senate. If that case is failed against him, he immediately will be inhabilitated to be elected as President.

If that scenario occurs before the first round it is still possible that Colombians of good will, I mean the decent people, vote for any of the other three eligible candidates on time, but if that decision is taken after the first round passes we will see an extremely undermined Candidate facing a truly political Animal as it is Petro.

Petro promises are pure demagogy, is populism to the extreme, he is acting in an irresponsible way offering things that are absolutely out of possibility to be achieved, but there is the precedent in 1970 of such Populism in Colombia. Gustavo Rojas-Pinilla, who was the Juan Domingo Peron of Colombia, got an impressive popular support offering things like transfer real state property from the landlords to the tenants that had 15 years or more paying rent. Such a decision if might be implemented was not different than the expropriation of the Jews under the IIIth Reich by WII.

A corrupt politician ruling Colombia would risk seriously the Security of many nations, it is an extremely strategic country, Colombian waters surround the isthmus of Panama, surround the golf of Venezuela, cut the navigation on the Amazon River as well as the Navigation from the Amazon Basin the Orinoco Basin, all major airlines that travel from the North Western Hemisphere to the South Western crosses Colombian Space.

It is a linguistic loan from Spanish, here it is in various online dictionaries the corresponding definition of it:


According with Webster Definition of caudillo
plural caudillos
: a Spanish or Latin American military dictator


www.merriam-webster.com...


According with Britannica :
Caudillo, Latin American military dictator. In the wake of the Latin American independence movement in the early 19th century, politically unstable conditions and the long experience of armed conflict led to the emergence in many of the new countries of strongmen who were often charismatic and whose hold on power depended on control over armed followers, patronage, and vigilance. Because their power was based on violence and personal relations, the legitimacy of the caudillos’ rule was always in doubt, and few could withstand the challenges of new leaders who emerged among their own followers and wealthy patrons. See also machismo; personalismo.


www.britannica.com...

The word became introduced in English in 1930s when Francisco Franco won the civil war in Spain, but it continue being in use by the media along 1940s to 1980s referring to the trend of Hispanic people to be leaded by strong Military Authoritarian Leaders, it became popular in America specially from the representation of Evita, the Musical of Brodway, based in the life of Eva Duarte de Peron, the first wife of the Argentine Dictator Juan Domingo Peron.

The Peace of God to all that belong to the light,
Dear Readers,

New revelations have come to my awareness recently about the new developments in the Colombian Election:

I foresaw a third Candidate emerging with great strength in this very last month of Campaign, around him there will be a movement of masses of middle class people, professionals, educators, small entrepreneurs, students, traders, a multitude of Colombians tired of the manipulation that is taken place with the polls.

There is a conspiracy already running from the political establishment, the strong aristocracies that have ruled for centuries the public life in Colombia, from one side, supporting Ivan Duque-Marquez, and from the other one the fascist political machinery that is pushing the campaign of Gustavo Petro, an ex militant of the subversive militia M19.

I see close to the day of the election great agitation in Colombia, we are going to witness different important events occurring:

- a Natural disaster will target Colombia, if something huge of seismic nature with a Volcanic component too.

- Violence will emerge in the campaign, I see attempts of assassination running against even more than one political figure, it is likely that not all of them can be stopped on time before to harm somebody important.

- The number of candidates running will reduce to just three in the last weeks before the first round of the election take place on May 27th.

- The day of the first round election the third Candidate, a still young man that is not a conventional politician, somebody coming from the world of academics or science, will perform extraordinarily good, defying the forecast of the polls he may even take one of the two slots for the second round of the election in June.

The outcome of the first round it is pretty clear in this Oracle: None of the candidates will be able to reach more than 50% of the casted votes, there will be a need for a second round.

Thanks for your attention,

The Angel of Lightness

The Peace of God to all that belong to the light,
Dear Readers,

I suggest to my readers in Colombia to be cautious of the rallies of the politicians, since when violence emerge will be difficult to control and even innocent people may be targeted by the terrorists.

There will be rumors of international plots behind this, but my perception is clear that the origin of these crimes is domestic, it will be linked with the world of drugs, the underground economy.

There are groups of organized crime that have strong interests in to redirect the progress of the political process and assure an electoral result in their best interest.

A major political figure will be also accused of involvement in extremely grave corruption scandals and this will add a lot of noise to the election.

I see somebody being impeached and even imprisoned or charged as consequence of this shocking indiction. However, the final outcome of such a prosecution will really arrive months after the election.

There will be a kind of panic about the result of the election, since it will look as a radical twist in what has been the political life of Colombia for decades, but at the end the political machineries will be defeated by the organization of the common citizens, true democracy will prevail, but a genuine one, it will not be just the continuation of a state controlled by the powerful ones.

Thanks for your attention,

The Angel of Lightness
