Only few days after the expulsion of Sali Berisha from the Democratic Party parliamentary group, through a personal decision by Lulzim Basha, due to his justification that this was requested by the US, are enough to analyze what has been said these days, and to understand how “pro-American” is Lulzim Basha.
Also, to analyze whether the expulsion of Sali Berisha, Basha did for the sake of the interests of the Democrats themselves, or for his personal interests, businesses, money and protection from scandals and his corrupted affairs. Since 2017, Basha hasn’t paid any official visit to the US, and hasn’t met any congressmen or senator.
The last meeting dates in the beginning of 2018 with an NGO, a meeting that has nothing to do with an official visit. So there have been problems in his relations with the US. This started after the photos with former US President Donald Trump, where the scandal deepened with the opening of a criminal case, and where the investigations showed that for that photo were paid Russian money coming from offshore companies of dubious origin.
Then Lulzim Basha, a man who today declares that he is pro-American and that with Berisha he has taken an act requested by the US, is the man who ordered the burning of MP mandates. We recall here the crazy attacks of Basha and his people in 2019, when he burned the mandates of deputies, and the story he told over the phone conversation with Mathew Palmer, the US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State.
Basha told him that he would not withdraw and that the decision had been made. Then Basha decided to boycott the local elections, to oppose the American embassy, the State Department, senior officials, to whom he held a tough stance, not only for the political acts he committed, but also by attacking them on social networks and on his media.
Today he appears to us as a pro-American. But Basha would have officially ousted Berisha’s exclusion with the structures, explaining that this was the position of the Americans. This would be a step in support of the interests and demands of the strategic partner of Albania and Albanians.
But when he sneaks into the office, reads a statement, and then tells others that this is the decision, this attitude serves neither the strategic partner, nor the US, anyone. In this case he shows that he is a small-minded man, that he has some bargains to do and personal problems to solve, that he is incredible.
So Lulzim Basha is not the pro-American he seems. In fact, he has acted anti-American many times, and has done this so systematically since violating U.S. rules, such as paying for a photo with dubious money paid by some Russian citizens.
So Lulzim Basha is not the pro-American he claims to be, but he is also anti-American in behavior. Because if he were a politician who supports the strategic partner, respects the party he leads, enforces the rules, doesn’t exclude people from the party in violation of the rules.
Lulzim Basha is a staunch anti-American. On the other hand there is also a coward, who in panic for his fate does any kind of madness, and we don’t believe there is anyone in the US who want this clown as an ally or to keep him as a partner.
People like Lulzim Basha not only don’t need anyone in US politics. But they have harmed the latter, attacking and anathematizing her. This is Lulzim Basha, the anti-American who leads today the Democratic Party./CNA.al
