Venezuela Has Officially Abandoned The Petrodollar – Does This Make War With Venezuela More Likely?
http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/venezuela-has-officially-abandoned-the-petrodollar-does-this-make-war-with-venezuela-more-likely



'Venezuela is the 11th largest oil producing country in the entire world, and it has just announced that it is going to stop using the petrodollar. Most Americans don't even know what the petrodollar is, but for those of you that do understand what I am talking about, this should send a chill up your spine. The petrodollar is one of the key pillars of the global financial system, and it allows us to live a far higher standard of living than we actually deserve. The dominance of the petrodollar has been very jealously guarded by our government in the past, and that is why many are now concerned that this move by Venezuela could potentially lead us to war.

I don't know why this isn't headline news all over the country, but it should be. One of the few major media outlets that is reporting on this is the Wall Street Journal...

The government of this oil-rich but struggling country, looking for ways to circumvent U.S. sanctions, is telling oil traders that it will no longer receive or send payments in dollars, people familiar with the new policy have told The Wall Street Journal.'

Venezuela suggests global oil trade in Russian ruble & Chinese yuan
https://www.rt.com/business/405640-maduro-crude-producers-currencies-moacow/



'The President of Venezuela Nicolas Maduro has proposed oil producing countries should discuss creating a currency basket for trading crude and refined products.

"Developing a new mechanism of controlling the oil market is necessary," he said on Wednesday at the Russian Energy Forum, being held in Moscow this week.

According to Maduro, trading paper futures has an adverse impact on the oil market, undermining attempts by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) to stabilize prices.

Introducing alternative currency baskets, including the yuan, ruble, and other currencies will eliminate the impact of futures trading, according to the Venezuelan president.

Maduro insisted Venezuela is dealing with its debt to Russia, and that Rosneft's deal with Venezuelan state oil producer PDVSA is "subject to negotiation."'

The NYT Pays Homage to Fascist Venezuelan Coup Plotter






In 2015, Leopoldo Lopez was arrested, prosecuted and convicted, and imprisoned for inciting months of violence and related crimes against the state - a US-regime change plot still ongoing to replace Bolivarian social democracy with fascist tyranny.

He and others were responsible for scores of deaths and injuries, along with destruction of private property.

Life imprisonment in America would likely follow conviction of similar crimes. Lopez was sentenced to 14 years. After three years in prison, he was transferred to house arrest for humanitarian reasons in July 2017.

President Maduro called him the "face of fascism" in Venezuela. Along with co-conspirators, he launched a US-supported La Salida (the Exit) campaign.

It openly called for ousting Venezuela's government, inciting street violence to return the country to its bad old pre-Chavez days.

Media scoundrels covered months of US-orchestrated street violence "as if it were Selma 1965," History Professor Greg Grandin observed, calling Lopez "the darling of Venezuela's (fascist) opposition."

He was involved in the aborted two-day 2002 coup attempt to oust Chavez. Grandin called him a "thug...Ted Cruz with a mob." Spam_A Spam_B While incarcerated, the NYT and other media scoundrels called him a "political prisoner," ignoring his high crimes, his coup plotting and responsibility for street violence causing many deaths and injuries.

On March 1, the Times headlined "Can Venezuela Be Saved?" - lauding a convicted criminal now under house arrest, disgracefully comparing his imprisonment to MLK in Birmingham jail.

Lopez is a fascist thug, King a nonviolent, anti-war civil rights leader until his 1968 state-sponsored assassination.

The Times: "Lopez was arrested in February 2014 after leading a public protest that turned violent."

Fact: He was imprisoned for inciting violence, coup plotting and related crimes.

The Times: "(H)e's among the most prominent and popular opposition leaders in Venezuela."

Fact: His supporters included wealthy Venezuelans and right-wing extremists, not majority Chavistas.

The Times: "His case has been championed by just about every human rights organization on earth" - reactionary ones alone supporting privilege at the expense of social justice.

Lopez has a long history of wrongdoing, including municipal corruption and inciting anti-Bolivarian violence.

According to US embassy in Caracas cables released by WikiLeaks, he's described as "arrogant, vengeful and thirsty for power...a divisive figure of the opposition."

Allied with fascist hardliner Maria Corina Machado, their La Salida (exit) campaign called for Maduro's removal from office, saying "the method is secondary."

They called for "guarimbas," anti-government street violence. Asked at the time when it would end, he said "when we manage to remove those who govern us."

Lopez and others like him are no democrats. They're coup plotting fascist thugs, violence and other dirty tactics used to end Bolivarian governance.

The Times disgracefully portrayed him as a national hero - suppressing his dark side, supporting privilege exclusively, hostile to equity, justice and rule of law principles.

Can you believe people are still duped by this guy? Suckered? Blinded? Put back to sleep? They were supposed to be awake.

Better sign up your children. Wouldn't want them to miss out on the glory of invading Venezuela, fellow infowarriors.  ::) :P

Venezuela closes border with Brazil, may do the same at Colombia border – Maduro
http://www.rt.com/news/452105-venezuela-border-brazil-colombia/





'Starting Thursday evening, Venezuela is closing its border with Brazil, President Nicolas Maduro has announced. He added the same measure may apply to the border with Colombia, though he does not want to order it.

The Venezuelan military was ordered to enforce the travel ban in airspace and on the sea until further notice, Maduro said during a televised address from a military headquarters.

Speaking about possible cut of border travel with Colombia, Maduro said he didn't want to take such a decision but was considering it.

Both Brazil and Colombia serve as transit counties for Venezuela-bound American shipments. The restrictions come amid a tense stand-off over US attempts to deliver what Washington describes as humanitarian aid into Venezuela in defiance of the wishes of its government. The US considers Maduro usurper and recognizes as the head of state the self-proclaimed acting president Juan Guaido, whose opposition group is the designated receiver of the 'aid'.

Earlier on Thursday Guaido said he will personally go to the border with Colombia to get the shipment from the US, urging drivers to go with him and defy the border guards ordered to prevent the delivery.

Maduro's government is suspicious of the US stated plan to provide humanitarian assistance to Venezuelan opposition. US envoy for Venezuela Elliott Abrams has a record of using humanitarian convoys to smuggle arms to Latin American countries targeted for regime change by Washington, and Caracas says he is now trying to follow the same script in Venezuela.'

Venezuela – US Attack Imminent?
http://www.globalresearch.ca/venezuela-us-attack-imminent/5669311





'Imagine, the President of the self-declared, exceptional and unique Superpower, Donald Trump of the United States of America, has the audacity to threaten the Venezuelan military with their lives, if they keep standing behind the democratically elected President Nicolás Maduro, and defending his Government. An open threat – yesterday, 18 February, at a Miami University, in a speech of 'fire and fury'; this time against socialist Venezuela with which he wants to finish, like with all other socialist nations – especially those in his 'backyard'. So, Cuba, Nicaragua and Bolivia are next in Trump's crosshairs – and / or the crosshairs of his handlers. Don't forget, he is a staged and convenient fool for the "Deep State" or the "Profound Government" – whatever you want to call this secret clan of the Chosen People that intends to rule the world. I cannot help being amazed at what level of inhumanity we have arrived. Trump calls openly out to assassinate those who stand behind the legitimate President of Venezuela – and the rest of the world just looks on, watches and says NOTHING – zilch, zero – tolerates such atrocity coming from the mouth of a buffoon, aka the strongman of the self-proclaimed one and only superpower of the globe. – No, much worse – the so-called civilized west, the European Union, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan – and some second- and third class puppet developing countries from South America, whose people are being starved while the elite admires and dances to the tune of the USA; united in what they call the "Group of Lima" (created in Lima in August 2017, to "safe" Venezuela). Members include, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay and Peru.

In the meantime, Mexico, under her new leftwing President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, or simply, AMLO, abstains from any decision against Venezuela. To the contrary, Mexico is part of the "Montevideo Mechanism" that comprises Mexico, Uruguay, Bolivia and the member countries of CARICOM and seeks conflict resolution through dialogue with the opposition, for which the Maduro Government has been ready from the beginning of the conflict, but which has been boycotted by the opposition, as were the 20 May 2018 elections which the non-participating opposition now calls a fraud.'
