Hat tip to Eva Golinger…sometimes the news just doesn’t get any better than this. It seems that Machetera’s secret admirer, Ernesto Hernández Busto, is hitting the talking heads circuit now for who else but his other American idol, George W. Bush.
W, whose latest vanity project is something called the George W. Bush Institute (whatever happened to the good old days of disgraced presidents quietly slithering off to San Clemente?) has hired James Glassman to run the shop and put on silly dog and pony shows like the one EHB will be joining on April 19 in Dallas. The “Conference on Cyber-Dissidents,” co-sponsored by NED beneficiary Freedom House will also feature Al Giordano’s new best friend Peter Ackerman, and a raft of other guests linked to U.S. intelligence.
Rodrigo Diamante will represent “Venezuela,” and according to Golinger, “comes from the ‘White Hands’ student movement created by Washington and the sectors in opposition to the government of Hugo Chávez; using students and youth to promote destabilizing actions that would promote ‘regime change.'” Diamante has a similar resume to Ackerman‘s other child prodigy, Ivan Marovic, who helped with a movement with an embarrassingly similar brand in Yugoslavia and was most recently reported to be swanning about Honduras along with Giordano.
Golinger continues: “[Diamante's] organization, Futuro Presente, was created in 2009 by the extreme rightwing Venezuelan leader Yon Goicochea, with financing and support from the Cato Institute in Washington.”
But back to Ernesto. What country will this panelist be in Dallas to represent? I mean, here’s the question; don’t tell me he’s going to disembark in the United States using a Cuban passport. Because we all know the deal with Cubans and visas. No, I believe things will go much more smoothly if he comes in on the little red one – the one from Spain. Nevertheless, James Glassman will introduce him as representing Cuba, because probably Frank Calzon wasn’t available and doesn’t really know how to operate the Interweb anyway, and that’ll be fine because remember that James Glassman was the guy who was telling us all in 1999 that the Dow was going to hit 36,000 in three to five years, so best hurry and throw all your money into the market right away. Oops.
