Yanni Rosenthal has been arrested in Las Vegas for money laundering. I wrote about this guy back in 2009, when he was not the center of attention, except for those of us who followed very closely the events that followed (and preceded) the COURT-ordered arrest of Manuel Zelaya. That order, by the way, was decided by the court and the request came from the “fiscal general” of his own government. That’s the equivalent of the Attorney General in the U.S.
Most of my readers probably don’t follow news from Latin America very much. In fact, the national controlled media are reporting much less international news than they did in times past. And what they do report goes through some steroid-enhanced filtering — in essence, censoring, because it is quasi-voluntary statism. Remember the obvious implicit threats that were thrown like darts at the Orlando television station where the Biden was subjected to the humiliation of trying to wiggle through the question asking how Obama wanting to “spreading the wealth around” is not a Marxist vision?
Well, that was domestic but there are also some truths that are inconvenient for statist authoritarians that want to tell us what to think, what to buy, where to buy, and what they will allow us to keep after they confiscate our wherewithal. One truth is Chile’s advance into developed-nation status as a prosperous nation after they threw Allende’s Marxism into the deep blue sea and gave a warm embrace to the freedom for poor and rich alike to do business as they saw fit. The free market made way for each citizen to do business as he wished with whomever wanted to do business with him, for mutual benefit.
Well, Chile isn’t 100% free, but certainly all of us should realize that free markets were the one factor that gets the credit.
Yes, the information czars don’t talk much about that.
They sure did in 2009 when they condemned Honduras for defending its freedom and its constitution against Chavez-Soros sock puppet Manuel Zelaya.
That year, after a very clownish showcase “attempt” to enter Honduras from Nicaragua and getting stopped, Zelaya was successfully smuggled into the country and into the Brazilian Embassy.
The word was among people that it was Rosenthal who smuggled Zelaya back into the country.
It sort of backfired, because Brazil made clear that Zelaya had to leave the embassy immediately upon the inauguration of the next president. Lobo made a show of escorting him to the airport in fact. That was part of the agreement negotiated in Costa Rica, under international pressure.
During Zelaya’s apparently unwelcome presence in Brazil’s embassy, there were visits by a few members of the Congress of Brazil. Due to the politically compliant international media spin, they were astonished at the way Brazilian expats were adamant and enthusiastic in their support for the arrest of Zelaya.
Anyway, I don’t know what happened with the arrest by American authorities of Rosenthal. It is well known in Honduras that Zelaya did business with drug traffickers.
In any case, everything is recorded in the heavenlies. What a man sews he shall also reap. This is a Biblical law and just as sure as gravity.
