The Republican Party is using US taxpayer dollars to rig elections and take political control of countries all over the world!

GOP organization linked to dirty politics, attempted coups, 'building democracy' for US

But they all have such nice sounding names? ICI, NED, NDI(IA), CIPE, FTUI.

The NED describes itself as a “private, nonprofit, grant-making organization created in 1983 to strengthen democratic institutions around the world.”

In reality, throughout the 1980s the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) helped turn Central America into low-intensity killing-fields. In reality, the NED functions as a full-service infrastructure-building clearinghouse. It provides money, technical support, supplies, training programs, media know-how, public relations assistance, and state-of-the-art equipment to select political groups, civic organizations, labor unions, dissident movements, student groups, book publishers, newspapers, and other media.

The organization’s Board of Directors is a collection of high- powered inside-the-beltway longtime foreign policy “experts.” In February, six new members were elected to the board: Frank Carlucci, current chairperson of the Carlyle Group, a banking firm, and former Secretary of Defense and National Security Advisor in the Reagan administration; General Wesley K. Clark (U.S. Army Ret.), currently associated with the Stephens Group, a venture capital outfit, and former NATO Supreme Allied Commander Europe and Commander in Chief; Julia Finley, a Republican Party activist working on NATO expansion issues; Francis Fukuyama, political scientist and author, most notably, of The End of History; Richard C. Holbrooke, outgoing U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations; and former Congress- person Vin Weber as chair of its Board.

Now that is just the NED. Imagine what the other organizations are up to when some are described as doing the job the CIA did 25 years ago.

The other acronyms stand for -International Republican Institute (IRI), the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs (NDI), the Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE), and the Free Trade Union Institute (FTUI). What a lovely group of murdering financial hitmen For corpitalist America..

The IRI was really big in the events in Haiti, which I have detailed several times.

What a system- Fair and balanced. Yay Democracy.

I again recommend the book, "Overthrow" by Steven Kinzer.

The dirty deeds of our beautiful country over the years.
