Nicaraguan resistance group speaks out refutes Nicaragua pointing finger at Costa Rica

first_img“Our objectives are to free the country, free our political prisoners, judge all the murders, traitors, corrupt people and sellouts,” Morales said. “We want to take out everything that belongs to Ortega: the judiciary branch, the army, the National Police, absolutely everything and create a real interim government.”The ultimate goal, Morales says, will be to hold elections without pressure from the Sandinista government.Morales, who says he is a dual U.S. and Nicaraguan citizen, spoke from an undisclosed location and said that Los Atabales are “everywhere,” including Costa Rica and the United States. He refuted that they were carrying out armed activities outside of Nicaragua, however.“We’re guests, and we’re not going to break any Costa Rican law,” Morales said. “Armed people aren’t entering or leaving Costa Rica. That’s not allowed.“The idea that we’re using Costa Rican land for operatives or anything is a lie.”More than 23,000 Nicaraguans have fled to Costa Rica and asked for asylum since the crisis started last April.Morales said the group took on its current structure around five months ago. He said their first operation was two months ago, after the United States sanctioned Rosario Murillo, Nicaragua’s vice president and first lady. There are two or three people in charge, according to Morales; he described one of them, El Chacal, as an honest man with a love for Nicaragua.Morales wouldn’t say how many members make up their ranks, but he said they consist of students, protesters, former Contras and government soldiers.“We’re under one umbrella in a fight for the people,” Morales said. “We’re all white-and-blue, all the people, we’re all Atabales.”Atabal, in Spanish, means war drum, and Morales says they’re prepared to fight.“Ortega and Murillo aren’t going to leave without anything that isn’t force,” Morales said. “We’re not going to submit people to a war that takes years. This is going to be quick.”Part of the reason the crisis that gripped Nicaragua last year didn’t escalate further was that protesters were mostly unarmed. They used homemade bombs, rocks and Molotov cocktails while government forces and paramilitaries used automatic weapons and shot to kill.After the attack on police officers on Jan. 17, pictures of a police vehicle riddled with bullet holes appeared online, and Morales posted a video on social media claiming responsibility for the attack.Then on Jan. 24, two explosions damaged the de Estelí town hall in the northern part of the country. There were no reported injuries.Vivan los Atabales!— Hector Armando Morales (@Apante77) January 18, 2019“[The weapons] are scarce, but we’re fixing that,” Morales said. He claimed they’re only using clean money, free from drug trafficking or other illegal sources, and that they’re getting weapons any way they can, including from sympathizers within the government.Morales said he’s going public to give a face to the opposition, which has largely remained anonymous due to fear of retaliation by the Nicaraguan government.“In a war where everyone’s hiding behind masks, you need to show a face so the people have someone they can trust,” Morales said. Los Atabales, Morales says, aims for transparency in a conflict that has been flooded with misinformation.After the National Police blamed “Banda el Jobo,” The Tico Times repeatedly contacted Nicaraguan National Police to ask for details on what led them to identify the group. They did not respond for comment.In a follow-up statement from the Nicaraguan Foreign Ministry, the Nicaraguan government cited news articles from Costa Rican outlets and The New York Times as evidence. Frances Robles, The New York Times journalist who wrote the story, pointed out inaccuracies in the government statement online:THREAD: There are several factual inaccuracies in this official protest by the government of Nicaragua. Nicaragua is attributing to the New York Times lines that were never reported in our newspaper.— Frances Robles (@FrancesRobles) January 23, 2019Costa Rica’s Foreign Ministry replied that it was evident that Nicaragua was trying to generate artificial conflict. The statement also pointed to another New York Times article in which a Nicaraguan Supreme Court Justice wrote about Nicaragua’s “irrational use of force” in his resignation letter.It has been nine months since protests against Daniel Ortega’s government plunged the country into chaos and uncertainty, but Morales says that by April, people will have a clearer idea where the country stands.“By the 18th of April, it will be very clear to Nicaragua that it’s going to be free, if it isn’t already,” Morales said. He claims the Atabales will have Ortega and Murillo out by the end of the year.“Dethroning the government and Daniel Ortega, that’s the easy part,” Morales said. “But rebuilding a dignified country without politicians that are already dividing up the country without ever having fought for it? That’s the hard part.”This story was made possible thanks to The Tico Times 5 % Club.

A bombing at a town hall.Nicaragua has blamed Costa Rica for a recent escalation in the country’s ongoing conflict. Unrest in Nicaragua seemed to have calmed down after Operacion Limpieza — Operation Cleanup — a nationwide clampdown on street barricades and protesters dispersed the tens of thousands that rose up against Daniel Ortega’s government starting on April 18, 2018.Following the attacks earlier this month, primarily directed at police, Nicaragua blamed a criminal organization called “El Jobo,” which they claim is based in Costa Rica. The Costa Rican government has vehemently denied the accusation.While the Nicaraguan government continues to point a finger across the border, a self-proclaimed resistance group called Los Atabales has taken responsibility for the attacks. Ortega’s government has yet to comment on the group publicly, but former protesters and multiple sources inside and outside of Costa Rica confirmed the group’s existence to The Tico Times, and a man claiming to be one of the group’s leaders, Hector Armando Morales, recently spoke to The Tico Times by phone.

The reconciliation progress is significant and ultimately wars end with a political settlement" General John Nicholson commander of the NATO-led Resolute Support mission said He was speaking to reporters on the telephone from Kabul in one of his last media engagements The Taliban have launched a wave of attacks in recent weeks including on the city of Ghazni southwest of Kabul Hundreds have been killed in the fighting An inspector general report released this week said that despite Trump’s new strategy the Taliban continue to launch attacks across the country "As has been the case since the announcement of the South Asia strategy the share of the population in areas controlled/influenced by the Taliban or the Afghan government did not change this quarter" the report said Nicholson who after more than two years has become the longest-serving US commander of international forces is going to be replaced by Army Lieutenant General Scott Miller next month Back-channel diplomacy between the Taliban and a range of countries — including the United States — has taken place over the years to end the war in Afghanistan which began with a US invasion in 2001 "We have an

Taliban rejected the government offer The four-star general was the latest US commander to offer an optimistic view of the 17-year old war even as the security situation in the country deteriorated However Nicholson acknowledged the government had not increased its control over territory in Afghanistan "There has not been a significant change one way or the other with respect to population control. we have seen other forms of pressure emerge social religious etc that are advancing the peace process" Nicholson said (Reporting by Idrees Ali and Jonathan Landay; Editing by David Gregorio)

Alexander and White House Liaison for the Corporation for National and Community Service Deborah Cox-Roush who each also reported owing up to $50000 in federal taxes indicate they are on payment plans according to their financial disclosures Reached by phone Cox-Roush explained that she didnt withhold enough money from her income earlier this decade and therefore got behind on her taxes She expects to clear her debts in full by September The White House expressed no concerns to Cox-Roush about her tax situation she added "Its not been an issue and Ive done what the law has allowed me to do" said Cox-Roush who according to her LinkedIn resume also serves as director of the Senior Corps Until June she worked as a special assistant to US Department of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos Clark earns a taxpayer-funded annual salary of $165000 according to White House records Alexander whom ProPublica identified as a "GS-15" employee on the federal pay scale would earn somewhere from $103672 and $134776 based on that designation Cox-Roush was a GS-15 employee during her stint at the Department of Education although its unclear how much she earns at her new job Clark and Alexander as well as representatives of the Department of Agriculture did not return requests for comment IRS spokesman Bruce Friedland declined to comment on the matter citing federal privacy laws In general the IRS advises that "those who receive a bill from the IRS should not ignore it" Strom the White House spokeswoman emphasized that federal officials owing the IRS money is “hardly a new practice” adding: “Im just wondering why its such a big deal that these three people voluntarily disclosed that they owe the IRS money especially when two of them are even already on a payment plan with the IRS as your records show” Indeed the issue of key federal government officials owing the IRS money isnt new and dogged the Obama administration as well Take the case of Timothy Geithner who once paid back taxes before becoming Obamas treasury secretary a position in which Geithner oversaw the IRS Early in Obamas administration 41 aides working in the Executive Office of the President together owed the tax man more than $831000 according to a Washington Post analysis of IRS data By late 2014 45 of the 1823 people employed by the Obama administrations Executive Office of the President had delinquent income tax payments together worth about $460000 according to a periodic report issued by the IRS Federal Employee/Retiree Delinquency Initiative Unlike the personal financial disclosures revealing the three Trump officials five-figure IRS debts these earlier Obama-era reports do not name names or reveal debt details There is also no comparable IRS debt data yet available for the federal workforce in 2017 making it impossible to know whether current White House officials and federal employees in general owe the IRS less money or more under Trumps administration Moreover Trump has only been in office since Jan 20 and has not fully populated his administration with key personnel Hundreds of political positions Trump is responsible for filling are either vacant because he hasnt appointed people to fill them or because the Senate has not confirmed people hes nominated Many key Trump administration personnel also have yet to file public personal financial disclosures that are supposed to list personal debts so its impossible to know whether anyone else owes the IRS money Government watchdogs say situations in which key federal officials owe back taxes undercuts Americans faith in their government "Public leaders should be responsible in their own affairs and owing such a debt could lead to instances of corruption" said Scott H Amey general counsel for the Project on Government Oversight a nonpartisan nonprofit "We should hold people we appoint to political positions to a high standard" said Ryan Alexander president Taxpayers for Common Sense another nonpartisan nonprofit "Clarifying what the standards even are would be helpful" As for the IRS Trump is angling to shrink it: His 2018 budget proposal calls for staffing cuts to the bureau Trump also wants to cut the IRS overall budget to $965 billion down from $121 billion six years ago and about $112 billion last fiscal year (Congress has indicated it probably wont cut IRS funding as deeply as Trump would like) Trump himself reported no IRS debt on a personal financial disclosure form he filed in June He is however no stranger to debt writ large: His latest personal financial disclosures indicate he has at least $315 million of it largely stemming from business ventures and owed to a variety of foreign and domestic creditors Trump citing an ongoing audit by the IRS has categorically refused to release his personal tax returns bucking a practice followed by every major presidential candidate since the 1960s The IRS itself has stated that "nothing prevents individuals from sharing their own tax information" Such documents would reveal Trumps tax rate overall tax payments and charitable giving among other financial information not contained within standard personal financial disclosure

one thousand Rajini fans clap whistle and shout out in synchronised ear-splitting decibel levels in a closed auditorium They don’t even sound like humans This is not a Rajini joke This is a true story You’ve heard of “all the Rajini fans” who live breathe tonsure their heads make temples of their Thalaiva On Sunday afternoon in Chennai at the audio launch of the much-awaited mega-budgeted Kochadaiiyaan directed by Soundarya Rajinikanth Ashwin I witnessed what happens when the Superstar and his screaming fans are in the same room My ruptured eardrums and a broken toenail will never let me forget the experience Sathyam Cinemas was buzzing — while a few hundred people outside the premise waited to get in 500 heads of Rajini fan clubs (he has more than 70000 registered fan clubs) were the lucky ones who got balcony seats The Superstar and his family (special mention to son-in-law Dhanush) sat in the fourth row Rajinikanth’s wife Lata personally looked after the arrangements Guest of honour Shah Rukh Khan (uncharacteristically dot on time) arrived with Deepika Padukone (who co-stars with the Superstar in the film) and the speakers went ballistic blaring Lungi Dance Rajini’s daughter Soundarya spoke about directing her father in what is India’s first “performance capture photorealistic film” A clip of the making of the film was shown — the Superstar in a body suit performing in a small room with 40 cameras tracking his every little move-elicited more yeah you guessed it right screams An emotional Saundarya said “Appa thank you for your patience This is all for you I am your biggest fan and I have the opportunity to say this in front of your fans” The most heartfelt speech was by K Balachander who discovered Rajini in Apoorva Raagangal The veteran filmmaker said that when he saw the first shot of Shivaji Rao “I knew that history is being born And that history will have no geographies” He added that while a superstar’s crown can be handed over “Rajini’s halo which he has earned with his values would always be his” Jackie Shroff attired like a cowboy quipped “All you Rajini fans my wife is a bigger fan than all of you man” Padukone thanked the Superstar and his family for being her “home away from home” A R Rahman who has scored the film’s music said “Kochadaiiyaan will create a new industry” Then it was SRK’s turn to speak The Badshah issued a disclaimer right at the beginning: “The only Tamil I know is ‘Thalaiva’” SRK said he came to Chennai for three reasons “First as a fan When I came to Mumbai some 24-odd years back I saw Rajini sir shooting for a Hindi film in Mukesh Mills and he kept practising his cigarette flip in front of the mirror even though he was getting it right every single time It was one of the early lessons I had in my life I come here as a friend I would like to thank him Soundarya and Shankar for letting me steal Chitti and put him in Ra One And finally I come here as a seeker of knowledge to learn more about the film that will change cinema in this country” Then he sang “All the Rajini fans Don’t you miss the chance Do This… Kochadaiiyaan Kochadaiiyaan Kochadaiiyaan Kochadaiiyaan…” And then came the moment nobody present will ever forget — the excitement that was so loud it must have broken the sound barrier The Superstar spoke It was all in Tamil but a good friend translated “I have everything I want at this point – money and name — so I wanted to try something that’s not been done before That’s how we started with Rana But then I was admitted in the hospital… My health was not letting me shoot K S Ravikumar told me he had a story about Rana’s father Kochadaiiyaan It’s a huge responsibility for Soundarya… The first time Soundarya said ‘Action’ I burst out laughing I had
