Lawrence Wilkerson: US Intervention in Venezuela is About Profits for the Rich, not Democracy and Freedom

College of William & Mary Professor Lawrence Wilkerson describes the current effort of the Donald Trump administration to overthrow the Venezuela government and oust Venezuela President Nicolás Maduro as a continuation of the United States effort begun in 2002, when Wilkerson was chief of staff for Secretary of State Colin Powell in the George W. Bush administration, to overthrow the government of Maduro’s predecessor Hugo Chávez. Over those 17 years, Wilkerson asserts, the real reason for the US intervention has been to help the rich, not the oft-repeated excuse of seeking to promote democracy and freedom.

Hard for US to ‘Sell Regime Change’ in Venezuela – Daniel McAdams

The Canada-founded "Lima Group" of Latin American countries dedicated to the overthrow of the Venezuelan government held an all important meeting in Colombia yesterday, coming on the heels of the weekend's unsuccessful push by US-appointed "interim president" Juan Guaido to lead a mass demonstration to recover US "humanitarian" aid just on the Colombia/Venezuela border. In what is likely a blow to US neocons desperate to gain traction with their plans for a US military-led regime change operation in Venezuela, the Lima Group explicitly rejected the use of military force to deal with the Venezuela "crisis."

McAdams: Senate Finds 'No Collusion' Between Trump and Russia - Now What?

RPI Director Daniel McAdams joined RT America's "Watching the Hawks" program today to discuss yesterday's bombshell report that the Senate Intelligence Committee has nearly completed its two year investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia and that it could find no evidence. As McAdams points out, this conclusion was hardly a surprise to many independent news and analysis sources but the damage has already been done: on the excuse of ferreting out "Russian influence" the media and social media companies have built a largely US government-funded Orwellian censorship network that isn't about to be unwound now that the basis for creating it has been proven false. Watch the interview below...

Venezuela: Politics of Regime Change ‘Dangerous & Inhumane’ - Daniel McAdams

RPI's Daniel McAdams joins RT America to discuss Marco Rubio's crocodile tears over suffering in Venezuela. After supporting the sanctions that contributed to Venezuela's economic decline, he's pointing to that decline as an excuse for regime change.
