JUNE 7 AND DECEMBER 30, 2019 – LONG-RANGE PLOTS TO DESTABILIZE LIBERIA AND RESTORE THE OLD ORDER

Abraham Teah Tehbah Barlou Mitchell (Attorney-At-Law) BACKGROUND THAT’S THEM AGAIN – The current state of continued post-conflict confusion in Liberia, led by dirty establishment opposition politics, must be properly understood and contextualized. Firstly, since the 1980 military coup and the dethronement of more than a century-old hegemony of the settler minority oligarchy, the bugaboo of that establishment class is not only alive, well and kicking, but remains the principal drivers of persistent conflicts, political violence, wars and agony in Liberia, as a diehard phenomenon. It is only under a state of emergency and chaos historically that the minority grabs and maintains power. That was how Apartheid ruled in South Africa: violent repression, terror and fear. Similarly, that was how state architecture, state expansionism, and a…
