Here’s what really happened in the elections in Venezuela. Please note that NONE of the lame-stream U.S. media sources are willing to publish these facts.
Imagine if this sort of thing happened here – somebody steps up and declares themselves President of the United States and gains the backing of a portion of the population and other powerful countries like Russia or China. Would Americans accept that? Would the world? Of course not, but this is in fact what is unfolding in Venezuela which just happens to have the largest oil reserves on the planet.
In the end, it’s not going to make much difference what the rank-and-file in the United States or Venezuela have to “say” about the Venezuelan election – but it will matter quite a lot how this all works out and who starts killing who (nearly 40 people are dead already). If this continues to go badly – Venezuelans and Americans will die in the ensuing conflict.
There is the predictable and usual host of ‘allied countries’ lining up already at the proposed feed-trough to overthrow Venezuela, including England, Germany, Canada and the United States, which are opposed by other major powers like Russia and China (the usual lineup of “good guys” and “bad guys”).
It’s hard to believe that ‘democratic nations’ don’t accept democratic elections if they aren’t getting what they want, but that’s where we’re at now.
Maybe some American people support that little weasel Senator Marco Rubio (Florida) as Ouster-in-Chief, who is definitely NOT the Secretary of State for Latin America, but I never have. I don’t like him, I never have, and I don’t trust him, and his ‘advice’ to Trump and the Administration is highly suspect in my opinion. And I feel exactly the same about Mike Pence who is also now calling for the overthrow of Venezuela. It’s actually pretty scary to think that Pence is just a heart-beat away from the U.S. Presidency himself.
Rubio was a lousy candidate for President here at home. But he’s inserted himself into Venezuela because he senses ‘opportunity knocking’ and enormous riches. He’s now one of the primary architects behind this coup attempt. He’s obviously making his ‘move’ but it might just blow up in his face.
“Our nations must stand up for the rule of law and support the leader who the Venezuelan people have affirmed as their legitimate interim president,” said Pompeo, calling for a new vote “as soon as possible. Now it’s time for every other nation to pick a side. No more delays, no more games,” Pompeo said. “Either you stand with the forces of freedom, or you’re in league with Maduro and his mayhem.“
The duplicity here is staggering. It’s simply not legal to arbitrarily declare a ‘interim president’ like this or recognize one. Venezuela, just like the United States, has constitutional rules that establishes how their country is governed, even in times of crisis. There is no need to ‘pick sides’ unless you’re trying to overthrow a government. And if you need any reminders, the ‘forces of freedom’ are always proceeded with threats, sanctions, bombs, bullets, death and destruction.
This is a Venezuelan problem and the United States does NOT have the right to intervene like this. Period.
This has the potential to trigger a major proxy war, or worse. Right now, what really pisses me off is the sheer amount of lying (again) that surrounds this entire issue. The United States doesn’t govern Venezuela, but try telling that to these rapacious bastards. If we really wanted to ‘help’ as alleged, we’d start by cancelling the sanctions against this country and allow the flow of aid and financial support to resume. But this is how governments are overthrown, which is what this is really all about.
