Iraq Redux: Trump's Venezuela 'Regime Change' Another Pack of Lies

undefined

It has been just over a week since I last wrote to you, at the time just before Trump's Venezuela regime change operation hit the mainstream media. I warned that his recognition of an unelected politician as president and his dedication to install that politician with violence if necessary would constitute the worst mistake of his presidency. 

Since that time, Trump, through his neocon proxies, has doubled down on his Venezuela regime change plan to the point where the US is seizing Venezuela's assets and channeling millions to the unelected opposition in the hopes that with a US cash infusion Washington's regime change plans can become facts on the ground in the country. Of course for that to happen, it will require massive amounts of bloodshed, as regime neocons are already touting what they claim are opposition supporters on the street as evidence their regime change operation is legitimate and supported by "the people."

But even if their photos are not manipulated and altered by those forces and institutions working on regime change (like the CIA, which has been dedicated to the overthrow of the Venezuelan government for at least the past 17 years), do thousands of people in the streets constitute a legitimate mandate in the "international rules-based order" so often cited by the interventionists? What of the thousands of us who demonstrated that freezing day in late 2002 against the Bush Administration's march to war in Iraq? So we don't count according to them?

What about the 2017 "Women's March" against Trump? It was said to be the largest demonstration in US history. Surely the largest demonstration in US history means that Trump's electoral mandate is invalid, no? Because even if Bolton's Tweeted photos from the opposition demonstrations today in Venezuela are not CIA cook-ups, that is exactly what the neocons are claiming: people in the street = overturn elections. I guess we are exempt?

Fearmongering: Senate Chairman Warns 'Prepare For WWIII With China'

At a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing earlier this week, Committee Chair James Inhofe (R-OK) warned that dealing with China's activities in the South China Sea is like preparing for World War III. He complains that the US doesn't even know who its allies are any longer. He warned of a long, protracted struggle. The hearing witnesses consisted of three "experts" from two neoconservative think tanks - all funded by the military industrial complex. Unsurprisingly, they agreed with Inhofe about a long struggle. Profitable. Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

Deep State At War: Intel Chiefs Slam Trump Before Senate

Appearing before the Senate, US intelligence community heads undermined each of President Trump's foreign policy positions and warned that foreign "enemies" would likely interfere in the 2020 elections. The Deep State, neocons, and the liberal #resistance all line up against peace and freedom. Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

Bolton: We're Taking Venezuela's Oil

President Trump's National Security Advisor John Bolton made US policy toward Venezuela very clear in an interview on FoxNews yesterday: We're going to overthrow the government and take the country's oil. He gets points for bluntness, at least. But who are the "democratic forces" the US seeks to install to "restore Venezuela's constitution"? They were all trained by the same US government funded "regime change factories" behind the color revolutions of the Bush and Obama Administrations. In other words, they are the creations of the US government, not of the Venezuelan people. Tune in to today's Liberty Report...

Distraction: Obsessing Over 'The Wall' While Ignoring Neocon Threat

Where is Congress on issues that really matter? Venezuela? They don't want a debate because they all agree on interventionism. Syria? The only debate was to shut down any debate when the president proposed getting US troops out. Yemen? Nope. On NATO Congress voted to prohibit debate on getting out of that Cold War alliance. Nope - it's all about politics and scoring political points. Which is why we are mired in this phony debate about wall or no wall. Pure political grandstanding. A tour of the more important issues in today's Liberty Report...

'Maduro Must Go!' - Trump Administration Backs Venezuela Regime Change

President Trump yesterday recognized Venezuelan opposition legislator as the legitimate president of the country and warned that "all options are on the table" if Venezuela's elected president moves against protestors or expelled US embassy staff who refuse to leave Caracas. US neocons applaud Trump's move. Does the US president finally have his very own "Syria" on his hands?

Permanent War: Congress Forbids NATO Withdrawal

The Democrat-controlled House followed the Senate yesterday in passing legislation forbidding the president from withdrawing from NATO and affirming undying US support for the outdated Cold War alliance. Is NATO really about defense? Or is it a jobs program for the military industrial complex?

Neocon Chameleons Return As Progressives

The decline and closure of the neocon flagship journal, The Weekly Standard, did not slow the neocons at all. They are back with a new publication funded by a left-wing billionaire, but preaching from the same neocon playbook. Why do neocons continue to change their stripes, from Trotskyites in the 1930's, to Reagan conservatives, to Hillary-ite liberals?

Martin Luther King's Murder - Conspiracy Or Coincidence?

MLK's family has been adamant and unanimous: James Earl Ray did not kill the civil rights leader. Many of MLK's associates share the view. We do know how the FBI and J. Edgar Hoover harassed King for years before his death. What might the conspiracy to kill King look like and why is it important 51 years later?
