Trump recognizes US-backed head of Venezuela’s opposition Juan Guaido as country’s interim president


US President Donald Trump has recognized Venezuela's opposition leader Juan Guaido as interim president in a provocative move against the elected government of Nicolas Maduro.

"Today, I am officially recognizing the President of the Venezuelan National Assembly, Juan Guaido, as the Interim President of Venezuela," Trump said in statement.

He added he would use "the full weight of United States economic and diplomatic power to press for the restoration of Venezuelan democracy" and encouraged other governments in the Western Hemisphere to also recognize Guaido.

Realistically if you are a Venezuelan who speaks English and lives abroad you probably hate chavistas



Well of course, who else is driving this coup but some bourgies that lost some privileges under Chavismo. This coup is driven from Miami and Spain particularly, but you got the French and the Dutch and the Germans therer too, and of course all the cuck countries around Venezuela. It will really be a heroic feat if Maduro can withsntand it.



Russia delivers aid in a 'civilized manner' to Venezuela through the WHO. Says assistance needs to be depoliticized through international organizations



Pretty shrewd of Putin to show he can get his aid through, while the U.S. cant. Id be surprised if the msm even covers because it conflicts with multiple narratives being pushed.




The sanctions the US are enforcing are essentially impossible to withstand, but it's unlikely that things will end once Maduro is gone. The support he has in Venezula is not really about him in particular, Guaido and his supporters are clearly disconnected from this reality.



No there will not be any coverage of it. The aid shipments are a media spectacle meant to serve as a pretext for war. This is understood by everybody, the only ones deluded by it are USians.



I think most Venezuelan people living in Venezuela are against military intervention by the US. Personally I think is just unnaceptable, knowing what happens to any country once the US military or the CIA get involved.



The class divide in Venezula has been reveled to be deeper than thought the last few weeks and the upper classes have no idea what the rest of the country actually believes or supports. I see now why they thought the elections must have been fraudulent despite all the evidence to the contrary. Many of those people who support Maduro lack ways to boost their point of view into the US media sphere, but that doesn't mean they don't exist or lack a political will in their own country.



It´s just so much astro-turfing, I´ve been following all this on Twitter and finally the Military Intervention NOW has been bumped down. But just seeing all the lies and the bots, it´s really overwhelming how easily the people swallow so much propaganda about Venezuela.

That program has been unavailable for normal people for ages, if they're still on it their families probably have some kind of ties to Maduro's government.

>the chavista group is a mix but looks majority brownish

Try looking at literally anyone that isn't at the front.




tfw white people are just a product of bad lighting

racism ENDED



The shit shills, gusanos and bots are saying on twitter is fucking astounding dude. People literally saying inane shit like they make $8 a month. You'd be fucking dead, you can't live in a market economy on $8 a month anywhere. How are you even posting on twitter. You'd live in a shack in a slum. You wouldn't have internet. You'd be a hunter gatherer or a medieval peasant. Thats fucking 25c a day. I'm pissed that people are either gullible enough to fall for that, or so cocky that they could even say such lies.



Also, in case you haven't noticed, it's the same damn place. By just looking at the shield, you can notice that the pictures were taken at a different time with different lighting.



>People literally saying inane shit like they make $8 a month. You'd be fucking dead, you can't live in a market economy on $8 a month anywhere.

What do you think Venezuela's minimum monthly salary is? Even at the official rate of 3300 Bs/USD, it's 18000/3300 = $5.45 a month.




Is this actually considered white in Venezuela? They look like Mestizos (admittedly lighter than the Chavistas).




18000 bolivares converts to 4.81 euros, 387.73 Indian rupees, 356.79 Russian rubles or 36.61 Chinese yuan at the official rate.






Adding: Don't assume shit, if you can't understand something just shut up and do your own research instead of saying "it must be false" with literally nothing backing you up.



It makes it easier to spot the colonialist.



I’m saying without context that can’t be true. The Empire Files/Grayzone reports in venezuela said that a gallon of gas was subsidized to something like pennies there (I can’t remember the exact amount). People are saying that on twitter like “imagine trying to live on $8 a month” when that is literally impossible unless you’re actually something like a Mexican below subsistence land holder that grows some of their own food. Essentials are subsidized in Venezuela, you couldn’t survive on $8 a month otherwise. That would make Venezuela’s minimum wage lower than Haiti’s by nearly a factor of 8.



And to add to that it’s useless to just point at the official exchange rate, Venezuela has multiple exchange rates that serve different purposes. A dollar in the hands of a foreign or domestic business is not the same as a dollar in the hands of a normal Venezuelan. Currency doesn’t just have a flat $8 value in that way, a dollar can buy X amount of bolivars and then X amount of investment in capital from a foreign entity, whereas the same conversion for a “dollar” for a Venezuelan here could buy X amount of food, gasoline, rent etc.

>people look darker in the dark

Based and redpilled high Autism Level post



You're looking at the official rate.


Get with the times, grandpa. Private companies aren't being subsidized anymore, there is only one exchange rate now. DirecTV, for example, operates at a loss since CONATEL hasn't allowed a price raise.



1kg of tomatoes costs $0.50, 1kg of potatoes costs $1.40, 1kg of rice costs $1.20 and 1kg of maize flour costs $1.70.

Services: Water, gas and electricity are almost free, I can't even find a place to pay my bills. Running water is only available for about 12 hours every two weeks (those without water tanks get fucked) in Maracaibo.

Gasoline is also very cheap, there are long lines but you can get it. If something ever breaks in your car, you'll have to pay a lot for imported shit-tier products. Those selling tires don't even take bolivares, just US dollars in cash.

Home internet: A 10Mbps ADSL connection costs $0.30 a month. Most lines don't support 10Mbps, and neither CANTV nor Inter have accepted new clients in years.

Mobile internet: 1GB costs $1.50.

TV: No plan goes over $0.50 a month. No new clients in years.




>Let's not fall for these rhetoric shortcuts akin to "global warming isn't real because it's snowing right now", shall we?

Which this is literally not, and is a legitimate question. If they are starving to death and only making 8 dollars a month then why do they look well fed and healthy? How did they afford all their matching gear and accessories for this protest?

>Posts idpol

>Says their economy is in shambles and the country is extremely polarized




Those who earn <$6 a month can't afford the transportation to go to the Colombia-Venezuela border, so it's obvious that you won't see those there.



And those who can afford the tickets could be people who receive remittances, freelancers, runescape players, etc.



The opposition is funded by foreigners. Buying matching t-shirts from Colombia and distributing them would be no big deal or, of course, they could just have a bigger income than the average Venezuelan and buy them with that extra money.


Sounds like Cuba.

Oh so 50,000 people who are

making significantly more money than <$6 a month, who are well fed and thriving in Venezuela bought tickets to go across the country to the border and demand humanitarian aid. Sounds legit, almost as legit as the claim they make less 6 dollars a month. Well I guess living in Venezuela is like hell, and it wasn't MSM propaganda after all… How does it feel to shill for the CIA?



Yes, I think it's safe to assume that at least 0.17% of the population of Venezuela can afford to do that.

I'm deeply worried that there's going to be a fucking invasion of a South American country that refuses to bow down to the West. I'm really hoping that this will change the opinion of the U.S and people will get angry of it. Or Russia and China would fight back.



>I'm really hoping that this will change the opinion of the U.S

Seeing liberals online go from "nobody wants intervention" to "maybe it is better than the slow, continued suffering under the tyrant Maduro" is just fucked. Does nobody fucking remember Iraq? Or Syria for that matter? Libya? This shit happened a couple of years ago, and the last full-scale invasion of a country we had was the biggest blunder since Vietnam. WHY isn't this obvious at this point? Military invasions are humanitarian disasters. They don't help people, they kill hundreds of thousands and destroy entire nation's productive forces.



>Maduro fucked everything up to the point that the damage he has done really is on the same level as some pro-America tinpot dictator. At this juncture, the only thing making Maduro the lesser evil is Murka's involvement, which will always be a doombringer. Maduro deserves unyielding support right now, but if he's still there when this blows over, I can but hope the far left stages an October.

People who think there is a good case to invade Venezuela are at least 10 times stupider than the people who wanted to invade Iraq. It’s as if Trump has turned people into brainless dipshits (even liberals). CNN is reporting that Maduro is a super villain (without really giving an answer as to why). Their correspondents are making wild claims about people starving to death, people eating rats, making less than 6 dollars a month, mothers selling their kids for food and Maduro refusing to allow them aid. None of this is believable, but yet every MSM outlet is copying and pasting CNN reports without so much as sending their own correspondents to Venezuela. Even if all this were true, which it's not. CNN expects us to think this is a legit reason to invade. They're not even trying to sell it and think just because some people will believe anything Trump says that their reporters can just say "Herp a derp Venezuela president bad people starve we must invade" that it's a convincing argument for war that Americans should consent to. At least with Iraq they said Saddam was somehow tied into 9/11, had WMDs, wanted to drop sarin gas on San Francisco, were actively working with Al Qaeda to build nuclear bombs, starved their people, tortured their people and gassed the kurds. They worked hard to sell that war, but now that Trump is President, and has turned his bases brains into mush, they aren't even trying. Maybe it’s because they have been reassured there is an army of astroturfing bots to promote it. People who are falling for this Venezuela intervention propaganda are probably the stupidest devolution of humanity in 10,000 years.

Also of note there have been plans to invade Venezuela for years

possible, but i doubt an invasion. i think trump would prefer to slowly bleed and strangle VZ with sanctions, blockade and destabilization, worsening all the problems through 2020, so he can use Venezuelan suffering as a re-election prop against the "socialist" Democrats. I doubt he'd want to just let that go now. He wants slow death to play out through the next election, not a quick fix.



Not Zizek too! Is he really shilling a soft green light on Maduro? It's like the reptilian invasion has begun, and we are surrounded by pod people.



That would allow him to still play the anti interventionist card for 2020.




If he invades and wins it will undoubtedly boost his approval rating. His retarded base will support anything he does if it looks impressive.



yeah, it would. but he'd also have to ensure it doesn't turn to shit between now and 2020. Iraq raised W's approval rating at first too, but a year later it had turned to shit and was more of a liability. He managed to still win, but it then turned to still further shit after and the Dems wiped them in the next mid-term. They'd have to not just win but keep it from becoming a shit show in the months and years after.



Hey, maybe '08 will repeat again then. Vnzl would drag the US down with it in a way.




Big if true. He may be an idiot, but Trump is probably the best used car salesman in the game. Not only will he get to play the anti-interventionist card or cause an anti-socialist panic across the political spectrum… But he also has craftily led the liberals, the progressive philosophers (like Zizek), Democrat Cops of America and the 2020 democrat presidential pool to jump the gun in their condemnations of Maduro in support of a coup. Trump basically revealed them to be puppets, shills and talent whom readily provide service to the oil oligarchs.



The WSWS is the only organization with the correct platform. Agitate in strikes and urge workers to from rank and file comittees and use this involvement to educate them on the dangers of opportunists like Sanders, AOC, etc. The demonization of socialism will cause the "progressives" to proclaim their love for capitalism and then cause the Democrat Cops of America to denounce the gains of the Russian Revolution.

As the class struggle intensifies the lines in the sand will be clearer and clearer.

I got it from this tweet, it seems legit. There is a video and everything. In Spanish, he said:

>Mi vida está consagrada completamente a la defensa de la patria. En cualquier circunstancia: jamás me doblegaré. Jamás me rendiré. Siempre defenderé de nuestra patria, CON MI VIDA MISMA

>Es una orden que le doy al pueblo… que le doy a los militares patriotas, a todas las FANB… Si algún día uds. amanecieran con la noticia que le han hecho algo a Nicolás Maduro: SALGAN A LAS CALLES EN UNA UNIÓN CIVICO-MILITAR A HACER UNA GRAN REVOLUCIÓN PROLETARIA, SOCIALISTA







>/pol/ thinks South Americans are MS-13, rapist, drug dealing Antifas

>/pol/ thinks the MSM lies about everything

>/pol/ believes the U.S. needs to pull out of the forever wars in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan because we shouldn't have been there in the first place

Donald Trump: Did you see the news about Maduro? We need to save those poor Venezuelans, and might need to invade them!

/pol/: Hehe, you think Maduro is the good guy. You cucks are just going to let the Venezuelans starve like they are talking about on CNN instead of invading.

The cognitive dissonance is real.



"Cognitive dissonance" implies there is any psychological distress caused by the contradiction. The problem is that they don't feel any cognitive dissonance from the hypocrisy.



>Can anyone find anything else on this?

no but I won't be surprised if it's true

the meeting is tomorrow and there's supposed to be "major announcements"




Any potential cognitive dissonance is subsumed by their jew conspiracy mind virus. They probably already tied maduro to the jews.

Remember, "jewish man, bad"



I mean besides the smear campaign against Maduro taken as the gospel truth of him, and dubious claims about the conditions in Venezuela… It's basically a soft green light for intervention. I mean someone is going to take the time to outline how the Venezuelans are so hungry they are resorting to cannibalism, and that Maduro is like literally a latin Hitler when they know damn well the neocons got their fingers on the trigger then not expect them to drop some freedumb bombs. That's very naive, and that line of thinking about the evil Venezuelan dictator and his communist country with no food on their plates is /pol/ tier.

It's like they don't remember the news and hype preceding the Iraq war. Where everyone was in agreement that there were WMDs.The people were all starving there, and the conditions for them were awful. The Iraqis were like practically begging us to invade and overthrow Saddam who practically was the head of Al Qaeda too. Then we got there, and after we had our bloodbath all the propaganda turned out to be bullshit. I mean we only killed a few hundred thousand civilians, destabilized the nation and sunk the U.S. economy while enriching it's arms dealers but it's totally forgettable and understandable if you don't remember.

I swear America is fucking doomed.

How the fuck does that work when they are literally going to start a war for oil? Are they just going to say it isn't a war?



Using a hypothetical example:

There's a country with 2 million people. One side has 1,000,000 armed people and the other side has 1,000,000 unarmed people. If the armed side kills 500,000 people from the unarmed side and the unarmed side doesn't take up arms, there's no armed conflict.



Does it represent the cost of life?

There is about a 65% chance they're going to milk this for the elections judging by their big announcement today. If you ignore Rubio who is just a bloodthirsty bitch it sounds like they are going to try to starve as many Venezuelans as possible with even more sanctions. Then force Venezuela into open it's borders to CIA agents by sneaking them in with humanitarian aid (who will reak more death, destruction and chaos). While playing Dems into conceding he's in the right with sanctions and forced humanitarian aid. Then finally play the non interventionist card, and still be able to use Venezuela as a boogey man against a progressive candidate in 2020. This might scare the moderates, centrists and swing voters into voting for him.

Makes me wonder if the establishment Dems aren't in on the act to scare Democrats into voting for a centrist during primaries.



They're going in within a matter of months, if not weeks. Bolton wants his war and Trump is a retard who thinks "RARRR ME TAKE OIL". Globally, the clock is running against the West and the regime here in Burgerland needs to kill or at least maim some other country soon.

I literally stop listening to anyone when they say "authoritarian" or "totalitarian".



I want to save her from the coming fire and help her gain class consciousness.



Fucking blow your brains out dumb horny cunt. Fucking stop people below 25 from entering politics.



"totalitarian" is a descriptor of the present society, tho. ALL nation-states in the modern world are totalitarian, because totalizing institutions are necessary for capitalism (or socialism for that matter) to exist in any viable form.

"Authoritarian" is a bullshit scare word though, and "totalitarian" is often used as such to deflect from the reality that America's totalizing institutions are the most invasive and pervasive in the world (evidenced by the absolutely insane narratives that Americans accept as normal and accepted, that no one else in the world would believe for a second). When Americans denounce an enemy state as "totalitarian", it's pure projection, such as the bullshit we're all probably familiar with in school where they say the USSR told students what they would be in school (which is a defining feature of the Burger education system, from cradle to graduation and increasingly, right to the grave). The only people who have any sort of freedom are the people at the bottom who are allowed freedom because their work is deemed worthless or interchangeable with any other prole, and the people at the top who are free to do whatever the fuck they want. Freedom is a lie, always was and especially is now when you're being told to constantly sacrifice before the altar of corporate profits and some asinine pseudo-religion for "the environment" where the ruling class is associated with Nature itself.



I'm probably older than you angry faggot, same for AOC. You think I would ever vote (for her)? Her stance is garbage and she is a watered down "soc"dem.

Doesn't matter, I would smash and if you wouldn't also hate fuck the shit out of those dumb right wing blondes you are no comrade of mine



The reason I stop listening is because it's not used in the way you describe 99.999% of the time.



yeah, even socialists and Communists can be guilty of using the word "totalitarian" improperly, because it's been normalized and there isn't a coherent theory of just how totalitarian capitalism had to become after the OG Great Depression (for the capitalists, because it would interfere with the narrative that muh markers = freedumb, and for socialists because of a lack of meaningful theory on what capitalism exactly is today, and some LARPing like we're still living in the Gilded Age and they're going to do a Lenin). I mean, the information is out there if people want to connect the dots, but strangely Communists don't explain this because of rigid adherence to Marxist and later Soviet/Maoist orthodoxies, and then there was simply no Communist movement left after 1990 or so.



>Doesn't matter, I would smash and if you wouldn't also hate fuck the shit out of those dumb right wing blondes you are no comrade of mine

>I'm probably older than you angry faggot, same for AOC.

The point of smashing the blondes is to dilute the violent wh*te """""human""""" genes. No point in doing AOC.

Was just about to comment that, it's insane how here in Latin America the easiest way to know to someone's socioeconomic status is (and by that who they support obviously) is by looking at their skin color. Not venezuelan but I'd imagine it's especially true there.



Not necessarily. I'm Venezuelan, I'm chavista and I would be considered white, but of course, not so white compared to a person of clearly germanic or aglo-saxon descent. There are a bunch of "brown" people who are not class conscious so they operate against their interest, they would be considered a temporarily embarrassed entrepreneur…

I would willing to bet that the Democrat donors and their establishment noticed that well over half of Ocasio's supporters were arguing against interventionism and even defending Venezuela. So Nancy Pelosi and Dem leadership pulled her aside, and said:

"Ocasio, your supporters are supporting an indisputable kleptocrat dictator. This is going to look bad… on you… and on all of us. Donald Trump is going to use this against us all in the upcoming election, and maybe win back all 3 houses because of it. I bet you want to be a senator or president one day right? How about a tit for tat? I'll get a couple of senators and congress people to support that little New Green Deal pet project you got. I'll also get a couple T.V. personalities and magazines to give you some more sympathy. I'll even have the DNC throw in funding for a senatorial run. All you have to do is tell your 3 million Twitter followers that Maduro is an indisputable kleptocratic dictator starving his people, and that just because he says he's a socialist doesn't mean that he's cool. I'll help you if you help me."

I'm sure Nancy and the Dem leaders said this while hiding butcher knives behind their backs with malicious intent knowing full well this hurts Ocasio more than helps her. Bernie already knows the game, and may have been promised some funds. Both Bernie and Ocasio know full well that a huge portion of their constituents aren't into interventionism or the demonization of American adversaries (i.e. Jimmy Dore)… But narcissism and some recent refreshing gains may have dulled their wits. This level of error makes Trump look like a brilliant political strategist next to them. For all his optical blunders he always knows his base, and what brings them to the polls.

this. we are controlled in ways that Hitler and other "totalitarians" like mussolini could have only DREAMED of in the early 20th century. The state has never been more powerful than it is today, and it will only become more powerful as time goes on.

No surprise. Hugo Chavez practiced a "hearts and minds" softpower outreach campaign in inner city populations across the American East Coast by offering free/subsidized winter heating to low-income blacks and Hispanics through PDVSA/Citgo's natural gas division. But that was in the good old days when PDVSA was raking in the dough hand over foot, now I don't think they even own the iconic Citgo building in Boston.



>This doesn't look good on Maduro of course

Lol they make everything look bad on Maduro, even when it's not, anyway, it's an interview Maduro is not obligated to give permission to release it or not, I believe it's his prerogative. It's not a real time event ocurring in the streets so whatever… F… Univision.

Even if a black ops is able to kill Maduro, there will just be another PSUV candidate. Chavismo is a mass movement, killing Maduro won't achieve shit.



I doubt they would just assassinate him and move on, after all what would that accomplish as you are rightly pointing out. An armed solution is the only way forward if the Americans and their lackeys intend to press their point, and should they succeed they will surely repress their class enemies (in this case the Chavistas, PSUV and other leftists), just as we communists would.

Venezuela to me shows that you endanger the gains of the revolution by not properly addressing the internal threats. Have the fight on your terms instead of letting the enemy dictate when and how, as they are now doing.

Of course not. The key electoral strategy today is to avoid making promises, which would inevitably be broken, and instead use the media to foster a vague aura of "positiveness", so that voters can project whatever they want on them.

What’s funny is that these people assume that the US, or any capitalist country has good movies when they intervene in another country. No matter how bad or “authoritatian” a country might be, it will always get worse when an imperialist country interferes. History has proven this time and time again. These people aren’t actually interested in helping the Venezuelan people. If they were, they would be advocating an end to sanctions and a return of Venezuela’s gold. That would be something that would ACTUALLY help them.

- imprisons more of its own people than any other by far

- starts unprovoked wars pathologically every couple years

- runs a surveillance state that records all the communications of its citizens

- uses starvation (sanctions) as a weapon of war against those it defines as adversaries

- runs a global network of prisons where people from all over the world are held indefinitely without charge or trial

- does not actually elect any of its federal leaders democratically

etc. etc. etc.

is not any sort of "authoritarian" and can seemingly be "tolerated" in all manner of ways.



There's a difference between actual reactionary cunts, and the vast majority of people around the world who can't even spell "imperialism", let alone know how military interventions are always a disaster. Class consciousness is ded. F

UN independent expert in human rights creates petition to support UN mediation in Venezuelan crisis to de-escalate threatening rhetoric. The expert also shares a lot of UN reports showcasing how Maduro has been collaborating with the international community to solve crisis and how the mainstream media has ignored his efforts for a long time. I remember such reports also existed on pre-war Lybia, showcasing Gaddafi's achievements on gender equality, fighting poverty, and education.

Venezuelan here, 97.492 votes, 26% of the total ballot.

Source: http://www.cne.gob.ve/resultado_asamblea2015/r/0/reg_240000.html



97,492 votes out of 190,796 valid votes represent 51.09% of votes. Remember that you're using the results of one state, and that there are more seats in the National Assembly than states in Venezuela.

Wait, I used the wrong number. Still, people had two votes, and that's why there are twice as many votes than voters counted. Dividing the valid votes by two[1] then dividing Guaidó's votes by that gives me 52.03%

[1] Sometimes, one of the votes is invalid while the other one isn't. 374,773 divided by 2 is 187,386.50, and as far as I know Venezuela's voting system doesn't count half a person.



Well yeah they had two votes, they selected two candidates. One person chose two deputies in that particular state, Vargas state. That 52.03% is just the opposition votes in general that gets divided between the two candidates . The other half are chavistas votes, PSUV mostly.

Anyway the fact is only 97,492 people voted for the guy…dó



Yeah. The vast majority of people just voted for "the opposition candidate" or "the pro-Maduro candidate" instead of "Juan Guaidó" or "Elías Jaua", as usual.

There's no reason for an either/or. No reason to accept exaggerated or untrue shit about Maduro or whoever is the enemy of the month. It's designed to inflame and underpin their premise. We should both reject their lies about reality and the insanity of their proposed "solutions", not one or the other.

Also, "tolerate" and "authoritarianism" are fuzzy buzzwords that aren't defined and don't really mean anything in that argument. All dude is really saying is "Your views can never, ever be anything that i don't like." What exactly is "authoritarianism", and what exactly constitutes "tolerating" it here? Does this guy think declaring some guy named Juan the president and demanding the elected president step down under threat of force is "authoritarianism" or not? And for that matter, why is "authoritarianism" the thing we can't "tolerate", as opposed to a hundred other vaguely "bad" sounding things? The argument is liberal twaddle and we should not organize our positions on its terms.

I think you're complicating it. There were 410342 votes cast, with almost all voters casting 2 ballots, and the two most voted ones got in. My only question is, can a person cast both ballots to the same person or not?

Other than that, the NA has part of its membership elected via party list, and the other half via direct vote, is that it? How many votes did each person have for the list? Is there even a pratical reason for bothering with this mix-up? And how is the CA elected?



I beg to differ. Killing definitely isn't the only way. A big factor – the biggest, I would say – that explains why the American sham democracy never lost legitimacy is in the extremely dissimulated and creative ways with which people are disenfranchised. Gerrymandering is probably the most peculiar, but there are plenty of others, like federal and state laws denying the vote for perps of certain crimes, good ol' disappeearing ballots, court rulings against this or that area having its votes counted and sho on and sho on. And if I'm going to be honest, if we are to ever build proper socialism geared towards a Stateless society, it will be absolutely vital to come up with a way to, at least, discourage the uninformed, reactionary etc. people from participating in the political process. Simple force, as I have implied, beyond being clearly unethical, it's absurdly visible and severely undermines the system's legitimacy. Not to mention the biggest issue is identifying who are the nitwits in question in the first place.



Was he watching a right-wing show, or is that just what the Mexican media are pushing?



>And if I'm going to be honest, if we are to ever build proper socialism geared towards a Stateless society, it will be absolutely vital to come up with a way to, at least, discourage the uninformed, reactionary etc. people from participating in the political process.

Except direct democracy, statelessness and ownership of the means of production means empowering people politically, economically and socially. You cannot empower people at the same time as you're trying to shit on them. It would work fantastically in a hierarchy, where you need to shit on the lower classes to get them from being uppity, but in a stateless society, it just invites resistance. Disabuse yourself of any notion of "moderation". Cull the reactionaries. Use the words "final solution", if you have to.



I'm unsure if there are any right wing channels in México tbh, i don't think socialism it's an alternative in the mind of most people, also we never really had military governments(or at least not since 1940), or nostalgia towards the military boot to have any strong nationalism. I would say it was a neoliberal news channel.



Just want to add that in the beginning, a centralized direct democratic state can still function in the transition period, but since it’s in the hands of ordinary people rather then party or career bureaucrats the state can easily dissolve itself (unlike the nomenklature hammering for capitalism and Gorby and Yeltsin destroying it against the referendum of the people).



>My only question is, can a person cast both ballots to the same person or not?

No, that's why the first two and the next two have almost the same number of votes between themselves.

Maduro orders European HQ of Venezuelan state oil firm PDVSA to be moved to Moscow


Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has ordered the European headquarters of state oil company PDVSA be relocated to Russia, Venezuela’s Vice President Delcy Rodriguez has said.

“President Maduro ordered to close the Lisbon office of PDVSA and move it to Moscow,” Rodriguez said on Friday at the joint news conference with Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, during her visit to the Russian capital.

The decision comes as Venezuela expands energy cooperation with Russia’s oil and gas giants Gazprom and Rosneft, according to the official.

“It’s the perfect time, as we are reshaping our relations,” said Rodriguez.

Over recent months, there has been a battle over Venezuela’s oil industry, which contributes greatly to the country’s budget. The United States has sanctioned PDVSA in an attempt to cut off funds to the Maduro-led government while giving support to the opposition led by Juan Guaido. President Maduro broke diplomatic ties with the US after President Trump recognized Guaido as interim president.

In late January, the US froze $7 billion of assets belonging to PDVSA and its US subsidiary Citgo. Guaido pledged to appoint an alternative board of directors for both PDVSA itself and Citgo as well.

When did Maduro become such a good speaker? he is much better than when he started, no offense but he didn't give me a good first impression when he said Chavez visited him in the form of a bird or when he was seen dancing on live tv during a protest.

i found the bird one


can't find the dancing one, i just remember vaguely a video of a guy in his home watching him dance salsa in tv and then the camera pans to the streets with protesters.

again, i'm glad he is becoming a more "respected" figure, i just think he used to say a lot of stupid shit, mostly blunders so i don't blame him.



So I guess that this point M-L is just "le wrong generation" for leftists.

It's definitely concerning that Abrams was put in charge. To put him in there at such a delicate time was a freaking disaster and I believe it harmed the "bloodless" coup effort. I never read a good explanation from anyone about why it was Elliot Abrams instead of someone with cleaner hands, or a fresher face, that was charged with being the US figurehead in the handover of the government to Guaido. It's like the US took a shit in the well.



These idiots think no one has been paying attention, because tbh, a lot of older Americans probably are not. Most boomers I know have no idea who Abrams is.



>Most boomers I know have no idea who Abrams is

It seems like none of the progress minded New York liberals seemed to know who Abrams is either despite their haughty literary and scholarly self image. I didn't see any liberals consider Elliot Abrams coordinating role while denouncing Maduro's efforts to keep out his U.S. humanitarian AIDS (or they didn't care enough to mention it). This, despite being the perfect opportunity for them to bolster their anti-Trump platform; which if I'm not mistaken is their Platform's priority. AOC comes to mind. It was as Glenn Greenwald described quite a spectacle to see these self advertised progressives rushing to assist Bolton. Tulsi Gabbard showed some chops, and I heard that Rep. Omar Ilhan called it for a coup (am not sure if she marched the Maduro is le evil bad man line though). Every other American politician seemed to be down with instigating a bloody coup.

No. >>2830145 is saying that he had no issues leaving the country on February 22 or entering the country yesterday (March 4).

He left on a private flight from a place near the Colombia-Venezuela border to Cucuta in February, and when he returned he went from Panama to Caracas on a regular commercial flight (Copa Airlines)

The media says that he arrived on a COPA CM 222 flight, but that's a Caracas>Panama flight from 1pm to 2:30pm. The time matches with COPA CM 224 instead (9:00am to 12:08pm yesterday).



Also, while I was looking for an english source, I found this:

> “I always supported Chávez, but I never voted for him," she said. "Today, I’m here because I’ve had enough. Our situation is so bad, so dire, that we need a change.”

So if you see low votes, a part of them may be "I support Chavez, but the USA's harassment is weighing me too much".

With Venezuela I'm still between "there isn't really that much misery, inspite of the USA" and "there is misery, but it's the fault of the USA". So not knowing if there is or not misery in the end.

There is hyperinflation in Venezuela. There is no "real" misery like lack of food, but rather the monetary Venezuelan system stopped working properly, and the Bolivar (the currency) is losing its value exponentially. It's as if the average Venezuelan get paid one trillion Zimbabwean dollars at the beginning of the month, but it does not matter anyway because no one accept this currency anymore.

Middle class people who had a few thousands Bolivars on their bank account, which corresponded to a few thousands dollars before the crisis, still have these few thousands Bolivars, but now it is worth less than a dollar. All your savings (in Bolivar) are gone, and your monthly salary is not even worth one meal, because the Bolivar can lose 90% of its value in less than a month. There is food in the markets, people still have nice clothes and nice houses, but they have some difficulties exchanging goods and services because of the lack of a reliable currency.

I have tried to understand how Venezuelans can live their daily lives in this situation, the only things I have found is that some rely on their family abroad to give them money, and that you can exchange Bolivars for US dollars in the black market (at indecent prices).

The reason for the hyperinflation is that Maduro printed a lot of Bolivars while artificially locking the US-Bolivar exchange value in order to pay its debt, but people in the black market decided the Bolivar was unreliable and started to sell it for US dollars, so in order to prevent people from selling all their Bolivar in the black market, Venezuela changed its official exchange value for something more realist, and people thought the Bolivar was even more unreliable, and so on.

The reason Maduro printed a lot of Bolivars is that he had to pay debts and US sanctions prevented him from borrowing money abroad (which is the standard way for a state to repay debts when it does not have the money). And US sanctions worsen hyperinflation anyway, because US investors are forbidden to buy Venezuelan debt. That is at least how I understand the crisis, but this is a complicated subject.

When Germany had to face hyperinflation in the 1920s, Hitler blamed the Jews.



One thing to take into consideration, is the fact that the private sector does not invest their own dollars in the country but instead they just used the public sectors dollars that were being given to them at a lower exchange rate in order to keep the economy going with the hope that a they wouldn't increase prices because they claimed that the price of the dollar was the reason why they had to up the prices

US military threats empty, Venezuela army kept nervous, Russian pranksters find out


US threats of military intervention in Venezuela are empty, suggests special representative for Venezuela Elliott Abrams in prank calls.

Abrams, however, asserted that the US wants to keep the Venezuela military “nervous about a US invasion.”

The revelations came in two prank calls by Vovan and Lexus, Russian telephone pranksters known for their trolling of politicians from around the world, posing as Swiss President Ueli Maurer, Sputnik reported Wednesday.

The pranksters reportedly spoke with Abrams for over 23 minutes in mid-February and early March, elaborating on Swiss policy towards the situation in Venezuela.

Venezuela has been in political turmoil with the opposition holding widespread anti-government protests, blaming President Nicolas Maduro for an ailing economy, hyperinflation, power cuts, and shortages of basic items.

Opposition figure Juan Guaido, 35, further plunged the country into political chaos on January 23, when he proclaimed himself the “interim president” of Venezuela, a bizarre move met with US President Donald Trump’s immediate support.

Ever since, the US has been escalating its rhetoric against the oil-rich nation, at times threatening to invade the country.



Unfortunately that has been the case. Before Chavez the only enterprise/company/corporation that mattered that produced under the state management was PDVSA. In the middle of Chavez administration efforts were spent into changing that correlation between private and public firms/corporations. Nevertheless they failed mostly because of five factors. 1. Internal and external sabotage; 2. Relentless and agressive competition from the monopolized private corporations; 3. Corruption; 4. Inexperience in the sector: 5. Impossibility to import raw materials/inputs from foreign companies.



Would you really trust a prank caller's word?

Is there a recording of that call that we can hear?



What if the pranksters were being pranked themselves by Abrams. He wouldn't disclose those plans to Switzerland that explicitly.

I wouldn't be too sure of that. Price controls in a capitalist market, outside of very specific situations, always leads to decreased production, because Porky sabotages his own shit in order to raise the prices of his goods.


Chavez was schooled in geopolitics by people who were interested in breaking apart Pax America that was formed after World War 2. All of this is intentional. Which might be worse because then you might have smaller wars breaking out or big wars happening similar to when UK's Pax started falling. And all of this is a big violation of the Monroe Doctrine and in order to maintain it there will be a War.

You're gonna have War…or War. Peace was never an option.

the NYT has finally acknowledged that the "aid" was burned by the opposition/Colombian goons, not by Maduro or the Venezuelan troops. They define it as an "accident" but this seems still unclear. Some think it was done on purpose to blame Maduro as a plan B after it was clear it wouldn't get across the border.

So since a US establishment media has now acknowledged this, we're no longer "conspiracy theorists" or "apologists" for saying it. How long will it take them to acknowledge that the recent dam explosion and electricity outage was sabotage (terrorism) and not "Maduro's incompetence"?



The defence I've see was "Oh it is just a misunderstanding".

Honestly nice to see Kuwaiti incubators get called-out in real time.

>I get to act smug around people I know




Lil' Marco is such an idiot.

He's not even a decent propagandist.



bump because this is actually quite huge. Here is Glenn Greenwald's article about it:


Despite the media crisis, this shows how much power an outlet like NYT still has around normies. Even on reddits liberals are slowly waking up and while you still see a lot of "Maduro is awful, BUT…" posts people are frankly quite pissed at this open attempt of manipulation that was pulled by the opposition.

Always remember that the opposition in Venezuela is dumb as a rock and hilariously incompetent. It is very likely that their ops go up in a dumpsterfire like this, which will discredit them even more. Pro-Maduro protests yesterday were even much much bigger than opposition protests and even the MSM is silent about opposition protests because there is no way to spin this around at this point. Trump's Venezuelan adventure seems to be completely stopped before it even departed.



The coup failed but VZ is still under huge amounts of pressure. International institutions aligned with the US are determined to destroy the country and oust Maduro. I predict something like “Maduro must go” will be adopted as the unchallenged stance of all US government and media people. “The Lima group”, which was created to destroy VZ, will still work to isolate it. Sanctions will redouble and be enforced efficiently across Europe. Other international implements such as the World Bank and IMF will extort VZ.

India must stop buying Venezuela’s oil, says Elliott Abrams


The US is “urging” and “cajoling” countries around the globe –especially India– to stop buying Venezuelan oil, as Washington continues choking the country financially, hoping this will “motivate” people to topple President Maduro.

“We say [India] should not be helping this regime. You should be on the side of the Venezuelan people,” US Special Representative for Venezuela Elliott Abrams told Reuters in an interview, noting that the same tactic of “arguing, cajoling, urging” is being used in similar interactions with other countries.

Oil revenues remain at about 98 percent of the country’s export profits and are crucial for Venezuela to keep the economy afloat, after the US slapped virtually every possible sanction against Nicolas Maduro and his government. Cutting Caracas from oil markets would cause more discontent in the Latin American country and lead to a massive popular uprising which would then spur regime change, Washington hopes.

Even before the self-proclaimed ‘interim president’, US-backed Juan Guaido, announced his intention to oust Maduro on January 23, Washington had been pursuing aggressive market policies against Venezuela. Faced with increased isolation following US sanctions against Petroleos de Venezuela SA, Venezuela turned its attention to New Delhi.

India’s third largest supplier of crude, Venezuela said last month that it seeking to double the current oil exports of 340,000 barrels per day to the South Asia country. According to Bloomberg, India became the leading buyer of Venezuelan crude during the first half of February.

I think you're right. It looks like the US gave up on any immediate coup or intervention, so they cut off most of the propaganda oriented toward short-term gains.



You are not wrong, the propaganda ramped up fast after Trump "recognized" Juan Guaidó as the interim president. I would not be surprised if all those posts were astroturfed. We already know that Israel does something similar, so it would make sense if the US does it as well.


So apparently electric stations are being outright sabotaged. Looks like military action indeed has been avoided, but now it's a dirty war.

Not in the least. Just yesterday, the world's media seems to have simultaneously reported that one of the "aid" trucks was torched by the opposition.

It seems undeniable that the establishment has suddenly shifted gears, but I can't possibly see what they stand to gain from it. Everyone outside of the far left ate up the "they expropriated my grandma's ponies" bullshit and asked for seconds. They stand to gain no new audience by changing gears now.



>why Americans are the way they are in such a fundamentally different way than before

Welcome to the capitalist hellscape that's attempted to brainwash me my entire.



The post are still around.

I lurk Boots Riley's twitter, and they're constantly tweeting at him.

Their outrage is almost hilarious sometimes, especially since most of them don't even live in the country.

One woman was living in the Ukraine and doing shopping haul videos on youtube.




>Coming here, and living here for an extended period of time, made me understand why Americans are the way they are in such a fundamentally different way than before, like something clicked in an almost literal sense.

I've had the same experience.

I once had to stay overnight at the Dallas airport, right after a terrorist attack in Europe. There were TVs on all night, one TV after the other, with 10 meters between each. All of them were on the same news channel, repeating the same phrases over and over by different hosts. They also tried to glorify the lives of the random Americans that were killed in the attack. Meanwhile I was trying to sleep in a wing dedicated to the veterans. Very surreal experience.

When Trump won, am email was sent company wide that you could take the day off if you felt overwhelmed. People were crying and shit. Very surreal as well, coming from a third world where we elect douchebags and we just accept it as fact.

When North Korea was the threat of the month, people were parroting shit straight from Reddit stories. My coworkers literally sometimes just mention comments they read on Reddit and others say they read the same comment. I felt my sanity slip when I heard one of my friends repeat a hot take on North Korea that was exactly like my coworker's which were both like something I read on Reddit. I've avoided Reddit like the plague since then. Discussing Venezuela with friends also sucks because they all hold the same opinion which I'm pretty sure is largely influenced by reddit.

Interactions with many are very superficial as well, and a lot of them act like they are protagonist of their own movie.




People roll their eyes when you say it but we 100% live in a totalitarian system of complete control. Only more like America under the Patriots from Metal Gear solid 2 and less like 1984.


Oh look they found some Gusano "comedian" to do another AMA on reddit:


Call me a tinfoil hat, but at this point I believe that all these subs like r/worldnews, r/AMA, r/vzla etc. are completely controlled by state department interests and astroturfered beyond shit



>I don't love Trump, but I'm in favor of his sanctions against Maduro's government and officials. We need that pressure.




Just recently this video showing an almost empty allegedly Venezuelan supermarket showed up on the front page of reddit with over 12,000 votes: https://www.reddit.com/r/WTF/duplicates/b07mg5/supermarkets_in_venezuela_these_days/

Of course all comments mentioning videos that show stocked grocery stores in Venezuela are downvoted and buried.

It's nigh impossible to find reasonable, nuanced and honest analysis of Venezuela in this fucking noise of garbage. It's all just people parroting NY times editorials or literal government propaganda from Marco Rubio's asshole. Where can I find somebody who 1) has been to Venezuela, especially during the present crisis, 2) is honest, non-dogmatic and analyzes the situation with nuance? Does anyone know of any authors or journalists or youtube channels or anything that I could turn to? This is driving me up the fucking wall, I can't get an unbiased analysis anywhere. All that I can find is drenched in ideology or otherwise vague. It wasn't like this outside America. Or was it? I don't even know anymore.



"Completely controlled" is an exggeration, but they really are stuffed to the bring with spooks from many governments, especially the US of course. not to mention shills for every corporation and think tank under the sun.

There's also the basic dynamic that people who are exempt from military service are more likely to be hawkish and advocate for war. That's how the US became an empire. If theUS presidents, senators or their children were forced to enlist and fight during war time, we wouldn't even have this thread.



>If theUS presidents, senators or their children were forced to enlist and fight during war time, we wouldn't even have this thread.

John McCain was tortured as a PoW and was still a warhawk. Aside from being specifically against torture, he loved war.

US presidents, senators, and their children are psychopaths that love to murder people. All requiring them to enlist would do is filter out the cowards, but the true blood thirsty murderers would continue to support the empire and serve its interests.



John McCain became a warmonger after leaving the military and even when he was stationed in Vietnam, he did not fight, he was in the air force, dropping Napalm on people without an air force and without anti-aircraft defenses. Psychopathy and cowardess are not mutually exclusive.



Wasn't he part of PNAC and help start a civil war in the Ukraine?

My previous post: >>2832998

I live in Maracaibo, got power a few hours ago. People have looted fucking everything, even a mall:



Over 100 hours without power. It's the first time I've seen people buy near-rotten meat with my own eyes (because, obviously, there was nowhere to refrigerate it), and also people buying bags of ice with US dollar bills. I think my city got it worse than most other places.



Because of the lootings, most places were closed so I saw people who lived 4km from me on a line at my local supermarket. If you didn't buy food ~3 days ago then you're fucked.



holy shit, dude. welcome back. what was it like? what is the current sentiment of the people around you? do you feel safe? What are news agencies saying? Has support for chavismo significantly changed recently? What has life been like recently?



Not that guy but i went to another city from Caracas to visit my parents to pass the holidays and things here were pretty quiet, lots of solidarity yeah people were charging like the the other Venezuelan said 15$ for a bag of ice something crazy, even charging people like 2$ for lending an outlet or socket to charge phones. The cities I know that had it bad were Maracaibo, Guarenas and Caracas. The city I am was one of the last to had power. Most places had it by Sunday we had it in Monday's night




Jesus. It's bizarre how the social situation is degrading, yet there's still a State operating, without an organized contending force. The opposition's support is a farce, yet there's nothing an average person can do to help the government get things back in order. It seems to follow the trend of depoliticization of politics.




NGL I'm worried the only solution for the Chavistas is to retreat like the FSLN did after the peace treaty




I'm still trying to figure out what all this is about myself.

The opposition claims they cut out part of it, but I can't figure out what.

In it. he supposedly talks about damaging the power grid or something.



It's a video from El Mazo Dando (Diosdado's show) trying to link people to Venezuela's power outage.

The reporter guy uses "blackout" as a loanword, and everything indicates that he's using it as "media blackout", except the last line "hasta que vuelva la luz" which could even be a metaphor. That evidence is very weak, and it even cuts out half of a word a few times (obviously edited by someone who can't edit for shit, whether he meant to shorten the video or do something else),

Looking into it more closely, he talks about a "lesson from the Arab Spring", which had media blackouts, not power outages.

First tweet: A tweet from Nelson Bocaranda saying that people have told him that they've lost signal, internet connection and stuff, and he thinks that the government might be preparing for an internet blackout

Second tweet: You can read this one, but I'll copy it here anyway. From @MarcoRubio:

>WARNING: Recent harassment of journalists shows #MaduroRegime feels threatened by news & information.

>With help from #China, we should expect that soon they will isolate the people of #Venezuela from the world by intensifying the blockage of social media,cell phones & internet.

None of content that they present before the outage mentions grid power.

Third tweet (from Juan Guaidó): TL;DR: Electricity will come back with the end of Maduro's usurpation of power.

"X, Y, Z problems will end if Maduro goes" is what Guaidó says all day every day, so I don't see the point in showing this either.



>Jesus. It's bizarre how the social situation is degrading, yet there's still a State operating, without an organized contending force.

Reading about the Caracazo really makes you think about this. How does Maduro survive?



Is that Louis Carlos Diaz guy normally a legitimate journalist, or a dishonest actor?


Venezuela is genuine Not Socialism state it's what actually what Asserist and Non-marxist socialist want.



Nice Censor, duh.



I know, right? I mean, it was during the Cold War so popular protests still carried some threat to whomever was in power, but to go from that level of restiveness to its almost complete absence isn't right. There must be a psychological factor. Argentina is in the same boat, tho Macri is managing to do in a couple of years what it took about 6 in Venezuela. France seems to be another example, tho obviously in a much smaller scale. Even after all this time, despite unceasing efforts by the far right to take control, they're still scattered and disorganized, and somehow, come back next week to do it all over again. It's almost like a weekly party or ritual, nearly devoid of actual politics. There's also May, with a short career filled with failure but who somehow keeps on keeping on. Merkel's career has been declared dead a million times over, only for her to win yet another election. It's like the "end of history" was delayed but arrived now. Porky is out of ideas, fascists fail at everything they try, and the far left is still catatonic, so the people, disillusioned with the vanishing promise of liberal-bougie prosperity, just shrug and accept whatever is already there.



This is such an obvious shitpost it's not even meant to make anyone mad it's kind of a self-own tbh why was he banned?



When you know something is going to happen, are part of the conspiracy but you can't help yourself to keep quiet. They all mention blackouts in Twitter and other social networks. There were twit s talking about how they (the government) were going to do this by cutting the electrical power supply. To possibly say the power outage was caused deliberately by the government in case it happened before it happened.



Why would the government cut the power if they already knew it they were planning an attack?

Seems silly.


Trump sort of just threatened leftists again. He said something like the police, military and bikers support him and they been playing nice but but it could be very bad if they decided to get tough on the left. He said the same thing at a rally not that long ago. What's do you think his angle is? Is this guy trying to rally support to usurp a throne or something?

I mean like the police, military and bikers haven't been tough on leftists for a long time?! lol




i'm shaking on my sidewalk



His primary concern is avoiding prison, and he only does that if he either remains president for life or if he sets up enough dominoes so that he's too troublesome to arrest. He wants to be in a position where he can threaten to sick his supporters on the country if they come after him, his family, or his businesses. Basically mobster politics.

Guaido’s aide arrested for plotting terrorist attacks on Venezuelan officials – interior minister


Venezuela’s Interior Minister has confirmed the arrest of self-proclaimed ‘interim president’ Juan Guaido’s chief of staff. The opposition claims he was ‘kidnapped’ while authorities say he was the leader of a ‘terrorist cell.’

Roberto Marrero was taken into custody on Thursday as part of the government raid against a “terrorist cell” that plotted to carry out attacks against top Venezuelan politicians, the Minister of the Interior, Justice and Peace, Néstor Reverol, said in a statement.

“Together with the Public Prosecutor's Office, the investigations led to the detention of the citizen, Roberto Eugenio Marrero Borgas, who is directly responsible for the organization of criminal groups,” he said.

The government also released images of two rifles allegedly seized by the Venezuelan Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (SEBIN) during the raid on Marrero’s house.

Guaido had earlier accused the Venezuelan security forces of ‘planting’ weapons at Marrero's house, while John Bolton, US President Donald Trump’s national security adviser, immediately denounced Marrero’s arrest as “illegitimate” and stressed that the move will “not go unanswered.”

Russia must get out of Venezuela, all options open - Trump


US President Donald Trump has warned that Russia must get out of Venezuela. Two planeloads of Russian troops are currently in the Latin American country under the terms of a 2001 cooperation treaty.

Speaking at the White House, Trump also warned that “all options are open” when it comes to getting Russia out of Venezuela.

Around 100 Russian troops touched down in Caracas on Saturday, a show of support for President Nicolas Maduro’s government. The move caused consternation in Washington, however, with Vice President Mike Pence calling the deployment an “unnecessary provocation.”

Pence also called on Russia to withdraw its support of Maduro and “stand with Juan Guaido,” the Washington-sponsored opposition leader who declared himself interim president in January.

Trump met with Guaido’s wife, Fabiana Rosales, on Wednesday, and pledged his support to her husband. After the momentum behind his play for the presidency fizzled out, Guaido has continued to criticize Maduro’s government, on Tuesday accusing the Venezuelan leader of violating the country’s constitution by welcoming the Russian troops.

US officials have repeatedly warned Russia against intervening in the Guaido/Maduro power struggle. National Security Adviser John Bolton tweeted on Monday that the “United States will not tolerate hostile foreign military powers meddling with the Western Hemisphere’s shared goals of democracy, security, and the rule of law.”



I mean what is Trump going to do to Russia if they don't leave?

Alex Jones calls for an invasion of Venezuela


>Alex Jones officially calls for an invasion of Venezuela to end the humanitarian crisis for the starving Venezuelan people while saving the entire western hemisphere from collapsing into a communist hell hole by direct design of the UN-run illegal immigrant invasion of Central and North America.



I tought that inmigrants of central america went north, not south and the border with colombia is closed.

Pence evokes Nazi Germany in Venezuela debate


US Vice President Mike Pence compared Venezuela’s government with that of Nazi Germany, arguing that the failure of the international community to take the US’ side could lead to genocide.

“When a brutal dictatorship arose in Europe, the world failed to respond,” Pence told a UN Security Council meeting on Wednesday. “Millions of lives were lost in the Second World War. So the United States is calling on the United Nations to live up to its very purpose. Reject the failed leadership of Nicolas Maduro.”

In a now-routine show of support for Venezuelan opposition leader and self-declared interim president Juan Guaido, Pence called on the UN Security Council to revoke UN credentials of President Nicolas Maduro’s government and recognize Guaido as the country’s legitimate leader.

The vice president then echoed a threat oft-repeated by Trump administration officials: “All options are on the table” when it comes to removing Maduro from power.

Russia’s ambassador to the UN, Vasily Nebenzya, shot back at Pence.

“We are witnessing yet another episode of a tragedy with several acts in the attempt to change the regime in Venezuela,” Nebenzya said, calling “external players” like the US “a direct threat” to Venezuelan peace.

Nebenzya slammed US sanctions on Venezuela, which he said have exacerbated the country’s precarious economic condition, and accused Pence of “artificially provoking” a crisis to overthrow the country’s legitimate government.



>AJ going full neo-con

So much for the anti-globalist right.



Jones realizes that the only way he is going to get back on Youtube is to completely subjugate himself to the US federal government.

I don't understand how far-right groups now (especially the latin-american ones) suddenly love Israel so much. They used to hate them because "Muh kalergi" "Muh jews promoting inmigration" or similar shit but now? They wave the israel flag.



Far right were infused with alt-right and right libertarians. Not anymore

Is this supposed to be news? I thought everyone knew COD was neocon propaganda aside from /pol/yps that think not racist = left wing. The lumpen pandering is genuinely hilarious at points, like how they used a still-living person as one of the antagonists in BO2.



I don't think this has been translated yet, but it seems The Intercept BR got ahold of internal IADB documents detailing their plans for post-Maduro Venezuela. It boils down to, of course, privatizing every fucking thing in sight, especially oil. A whopping 48+ billion dollars worth of "investments", such as loans with which porkies can buy everything off. Ye olde free money. China refused entry to Guaidó's representative to a porky mega-event in Changdu, one Ricardo Hausmann, an economist graduated in America (of course) and a Chicago school cunt. Also was once a finance minister in the pre-Chávez days.


It also led me to these lovely quotes:

<Then Trump brought up Venezuela: “That’s the country we should be going to war with,” Trump said, according to McCabe’s recounting. “They have all that oil and they’re right on our back door.”

<McCabe expanded on this during a Tuesday night interview with MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell: “The president’s remarks to the room were along the lines of ‘I don’t understand why we’re not looking at Venezuela. Why are we not at war with Venezuela?’”

Remember when the media derided "no blood for oil" protests? "Capitalism bears within it war as a sleeping cloud bears the storm".
