Venezuela Under Washington’s Gun – PaulCraigRoberts.org

A full court press is taking place in Florida today (Presidents Day) with Republicans, Democrats, expatriates from Cuba and Venezuela and the fascist warmonger ministry of propaganda that constitutes the US media all denouncing Maduro and blaming him for the hardships imposed on Venezuelans by Washington’s sanctions and attacks on Venezuela’s currency . Even “liberal” NPR is reading off the same fascist warmonger script. NPR managed to report on Venezuela without mentioning the sanctions, without mentioning the theft of Venezuela’s gold foolishly entrusted to the US and British central banks, or the orchestrated protests funded by US-financed NGOs that are small in comparison with the crowds that support Maduro that are never mentioned in the US media. In other words, NPR is just another part of the whorehouse brigade.

What Americans forget, or never knew, is that the Cuban expatriates are the descendents of the corrupt Batista crowd that had looted Cuba for years and were thrown out of Cuba by Castro. The Venezuelan expatriates are from the rich elite that couldn’t adjust to Chavez running the country for the people instead of for them, and some of these expatriates were involved in the failed CIA coup against Chavez. All of these expatriates are nothing but shills for Washington’s takeover so that they can get back in on the take.

Nothing better illustrates Washington’s opposition to democracy and self-determination than the blatantly public coup Washington has organized against the properly elected president of Venezuela.

Washington has been trying to overthrow the Venezuelan government for years. Washington wants the state owned oil company to be privatized so that it can fall into the hands of US oil companies. That would ensure Washington’s control over Venezuela. Transferring the wealth out of the country would prevent any economic development from inside the country. Every aspect of the economy would end up in the hands of US corporations. The exploitation would be ruthless and brutal.

Venezuelans understand this, which is why Washington, despite wrecking the Venezuelan economy and offering enormous bribes to the Venezuelan military, has not yet been able to turn the people and the troops against Maduro.

Venezuela needs help not foreign meddling | Intrepid Report.com – Linda S. Heard

It is undeniable that Maduro has made an awful hash of his job, but he still retains the loyalty of military chiefs and a substantial chunk of the voting public. Moreover, among those interviewed who wish him gone are people who say they would rather give him another chance than open the door to ‘gringos’ and the potential of a civil war or invasion. Right now there are two competing presidents, but only one commands the military and security forces.

Once again a geopolitical power game is underway couched in a humanitarian pretext and in just about every such case the people end up the greatest losers. Nicolas Maduro would be wise to call for a new ballot, one that is legitimised by international observers; not because he feels threatened by the usual suspects, but because doing so would be a first step towards healing his divided nation.

Trump’s Neocons will lie to Americans that a Venezuelan war is obligatory under the Monroe Doctrine | Non-Intervention2 – Michael Scheuer

January 27, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

In surveying a possible answers to the question “Why does Venezuela matter of the United States?”, it is difficult to come up with an answer that does not begin with the word “oil”. Because Maduro has mostly completed the ruination of Venezuela’s economy – especially the oil sector — so ably begun by Hugo Chavez, U.S. oil companies probably are pushing the Trump administration to intervene and create a U.S.-picked Venezuelan president and regime to repay what U.S. oil corporations are owed, and so that the companies themselves can pick up the remnants of the Venezuelan oil industry ‘s facilities for pennies on the dollar.

When the oil industry is calling the tune, all U.S. presidents and vice-presidents must dance its dance. But they cover their lapdog-obedience with rhetoric about the “illegitimacy of the Maduro regime”, the “need for new elections”, the “vast sufferings of the Venezuelan people”, and, of course, the “need to reinstall freedom and democracy” in that country. Whenever the leaders of the national government are trying to persuade Americans that the republic needs another unnecessary war, they wheel out the language of values and abstract theories, neither of which have any legitimate role to play in the formulation of an effective America First foreign policy.

Washington has chosen a president for Venezuela. I wonder if Trump saw the black humor in doing to Maduro what the Democrats and presstitutes are doing to him.

Few Latin American governments have ever had a government that represents the majority indigenous people or a president who was not of Spanish descent. Chavez in Venezuela perhaps was the longest lasting indigenous leader. His successor Maduro is also indigenous.

Indigenous Latin American leaders are unacceptable to Washington, because they tend to be reformers who represent their country’s people instead of American business and financial interests. Consequently, when a Latin electorate elects a leader who will put them first, Washington overthrows the leader. This is the history of US/Latin American relations.
