Spanish – When I arrived into the United States with my parents starting the 80’s I began to realize how they instilled in this country the patriotic love and respect for the flag. Before starting classes, the school’s principal every morning from his office with a microphone gave a welcome message to the students where we listened to him through speakers that each classroom had. When the greetings were over, my teacher, Mrs. Pinkney, used to turned on the TV at 8:00 a.m. with the United States national anthem and we started singing it with our right hand in our hearts. When the national anthem was over, we continued with the oath to the flag – that was our routine from Monday to Friday.
I emphasize into this so that you understand a little bit about why this country – which is the strongest democracy in the world – will never lose its freedom, the strength of its institutions, and the firmness of a justice that does not contemplate impunity as a political weapon. This is the country where its citizens are born with the flag on their foreheads and freedom in their hands. For this reason, the latent threat that our continent lives today with the badly called socialism of the 21st century – where its threads move from Cuba and Venezuela – found two retaining walls: one in the United States named Donald Trump, and Alvaro Uribe, in Colombia; the international radical left are trying to bring them down causing chaos and anarchy in their respective countries through terrorist organizations (this how president Trump names these organizations) such as Antifa and KKK, or movements such as Black Lives Matter (movement infiltrated by the international radical left) in the United States. In Colombia they use mostly students for street vandalism, private property damages and directly attacks to the Police and the military to achieve their purposes. A recent research from the Colombian institution called DIJIN, found that more than 2,000 of these students were recruited by urban cells from narco-terrorists FARC and ELN for Antifa-style actions. They also use the unions related to the radical left and even the indigenous called “minga” to achieve the destabilization of democratically elected government.
In Colombia, just as in Chile, they handle the same modus operandi – a libretto that Fidel Castro followed in Cuba to succumb his people in misery and desolation – then inherited it from Hugo Chavez – doing the same to the Venezuelans by anti-imperialist populist speeches in them to cover up and justify their failed revolution.
With the retaining wall called Uribe, the radical left commanded by former terrorist, Gustavo Petro ‘Aureliano’, narco-terrorists FARC and Colombian Senator Iván Cepeda, and with the help of the ‘Nobel Peace’, former president Juan Manuel Santos, managed only for two months to open a leak to that wall called Uribe – with the bulldozer of justice called the Supreme Court – to limit his further strengthening for 2.022 Colombian elections. In the United States they are trying to do the same case with president Trump since he started analyzing that the attacks occurring in South America are similar in the US such as in Chile and Colombia; that’s why he started a radical campaign against the narco-socialism government of Venezuela.
President Donald Trump is betting on the Latino vote in Florida, specially the Colombian vote. There are very strong uribistas in Florida such as the Colombian Congressman Juan David Vélez, and the political activist, Fabio Andrade, who have worked hand in hand with the Colombian community for many years helping them to be an entrepreneur and more participatory in Colombian-American politics.
Under the leadership of the excellent results of his tense as a Congressman, the uribista Representative Juan David Vélez, has shown American politicians the importance of the Colombian community’s vote in the presidential elections of the most powerful country in the world. Colombians abroad are now more involved in politics, seeing the threat posed by having Narco-Maduro’s regime as neighbors, knowing that Trump and Uribe’s persistence will be able to stop the arrival of this plague in these two countries that for many years have strengthened their relations with the anti-drug slogan.
The famous Uribismo is making history in America, and whoever believed it, Uribe put the Castro-Chavismo speech into the most important presidential campaign, and what he warned and predicted for Venezuela years ago, he is doing so with his own country even though he knows that his staunchest enemies will continue to pursue him using justice because electorally they know they will not be able to defeat him.
I pray to God that these two walls of contention will not be able to bring them down because very difficult times are coming because of president Donald Trump’s many important decisions against the establishment and the Maduro’s narco-regime in order to free the Venezuelan people from these chains who have been succeeding them for more than twenty years.
