How the Media Manufactures Consent for Regime Change in Venezuela
http://venezuelanalysis.com/analysis/14314





'The latest extraordinary chapter in the bizarre world of Venezuelan politics is playing out before our eyes. After winning the 2018 presidential elections, Nicolás Maduro was inaugurated in January, only for the head of the National Assembly, Juan Guaidó -- a man whom, at the time, less than 20 percent of the country had even heard of -- to declare himself President.

Guaidó was immediately backed by the governments of the U.S. and U.K., with Vice President Mike Pence stating, "Nicolás Maduro is a dictator with no legitimate claim to power. He has never won the presidency in a free and fair election, and has maintained his grip of power by imprisoning anyone who dares to oppose him."

I've previously cataloged how the media has been quick to echo the idea that Maduro is completely illegitimate and has been eager to position America's stance towards Venezuelan politics as one of a neutral arbiter. Why do mainstream media outlets, who resist Trump at home, neatly align themselves with his administration's Venezuela policy? And why has there so little criticism of what is essentially an ongoing U.S.-backed coup attempt?

In a recent study, I analyzed how the media presented the 2018 elections in Colombia and Venezuela. Looking at how these two elections were covered can help us understand why there's so little nuance in the media coverage of U.S.-Venezuela relations.

To study the 2018 elections, I used the propaganda model media scholars Edward Herman and Noam Chomsky outlined in their book Manufacturing Consent. Their propaganda model contends that mainstream, corporate media is not a neutral venue for truth. Instead, it is a vehicle that advances the interests of media owners and their advertisers.

The authors argue that, in contrast to the top-down censorship of authoritarian states, these outlets achieve uniform opinions through the pre-selection of "right-thinking" editors and reporters who have been trained at the "right" schools. They then disseminate information – or, at the very least, self-censor – in a way that protects or advances the ideology of ownership, advertisers and official sources.

Herman and Chomsky highlight this phenomenon through coverage of elections in three countries: Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua.

The Guatemalan presidential election of 1982 and the Honduran presidential election of 1984 to 1985 were held under what Herman and Chomsky describe as "conditions of severe, ongoing state terror against the civilian population." They show how the U.S. media ignored the enormous waves of violence inundating these two elections. CBS' Dan Rather, for example, described the events in Guatemala as "heartening."'

"US puppet, trained by ex members of Serbian organization"

After a meeting with US Vice President Mike Pence, Juan Guaido...

Source: B92 Wednesday, February 13, 2019 | 10:41

That's what the US media are saying, while the Russians are reporting that the self-proclaimed leader had been recruited by Washington some ten years ago, and is nothing but a US puppet.

This information was conveyed by Venezuela's Ambassador to Russia Carlos Rafael Faria Tortosa.
"In November 2010, according to emails obtained by Venezuelan security services, Guaido and several other student activists attended a secret five-day training at the hotel 'Fiesta Mexicana' in Mexico. The sessions were run by Otpor, the Belgrade-based regime change trainers backed by the US government. The meetings has reportedly received the blessing of Otto Reich, a fanatically anti-Castro Cuban exile working in George W. Bush's Department of State, ad the right-wing former Colombian President Alvaro Uribe," it is stated.
The article says that Otpor was made up by a group of students from Belgrade who worked to end the regime of Slobodan Milosevic, and that "the children who led the group, after the fall of Milosevic, dressed up in suits and created the organization CANVAS. They are still financed from the United States and travel the world in an attempt to bring down dictators and autocrats, i.e., those that the US does not like."


The Venezuelan ambassador added that the Americans had estimated Guaido was "ready for action" - but that he actually is not.

"He's just a puppet, he's been put there for the United States to stand behind him and speak. The concept of a temporary president does not exist in the Venezuelan Constitution, Guaido and the American allies just want to deceive the international public," Tortosa stressed.

US Air Freight Company that Smuggled Weapons Into Venezuela Linked to CIA “Black Site” Renditions
http://www.mintpressnews.com/us-company-that-smuggled-weapons-into-venezuela-linked-to-cia-renditions/255049/


'GREENSBORO, NORTH CAROLINA – Two executives at the company that chartered the U.S. plane that was caught smuggling weapons into Venezuela last week have been tied to an air cargo company that aided the CIA in the rendition of alleged terrorists to “black site” centers for interrogation. The troubling revelation comes as Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro has rejected a U.S. “humanitarian aid” convoy over concerns that it could contain weapons meant to arm the country’s U.S.-backed opposition.

Last Tuesday, Venezuelan authorities announced that 19 rifles, 118 ammo magazines, 90 radios and six iPhones had been smuggled into the country via a U.S. plane that had originated in Miami. The authorities blamed the United States government for the illicit cargo, accusing it of seeking to arm U.S.-funded opposition groups in the country in order to topple the current Maduro-led government. A subsequent investigation into the plane responsible for the weapons caché conducted by McClatchyDC received very little media attention despite the fact that it uncovered information clearly showing that the plane responsible for the shipment had been making an unusually high number of trips to Venezuela and neighboring Colombia over the past few weeks.

Steffan Watkins, an Ottawa-based analyst, told McClatchy in a telephone interview that the plane, which is operated by U.S. air cargo company 21 Air, had been “flying between Philadelphia and Miami and all over the place, but all continental U.S.” during all of last year. However, Watkins noted that “all of a sudden in January, things changed” when the plane began making trips to Colombia and Venezuela on a daily basis, sometimes multiple times a day.

According to Watkins’ analysis, this single plane had conducted 40 round-trip flights from Miami International Airport to Caracas and Valencia — where the smuggled weapons had been discovered — in Venezuela, as well as to Bogota and Medellin in Colombia in just the past month.

Publicly available flight radar information shows that the plane, although it has not returned to Venezuela since the discovery of its illicit cargo, has continued to travel to Medellin, Colombia, as recently as this past Monday.'

Venezuela’s Guaido says he is working to restore ties with Israel
http://www.middleeastmonitor.com/20190212-venezuelas-guaido-says-he-is-working-to-restore-ties-with-israel/





'Venezuela’s self-declared leader Juan Guaido he was working to restore ties with Israel that Caracas cut off a decade ago in solidarity with the Palestinians.

Israel is among US-aligned powers that rallied to Guaido after he declared himself Venezuela’s leader last month in a power struggle with socialist President Nicolas Maduro, under whom the country has had economic troubles.

“I am very happy to report that the process of stabilising relations with Israel is at its height,” Guaido told the Israel Hayom daily in an interview. A formal announcement on reestablishing ties and opening a new Venezuelan embassy in Israel would come “at the proper time”.

Maduro’s precedessor, Hugo Chavez, shunned Israel over its 2008-2009 war in Gaza, and fostered ties with the Palestinians as well as with Israel’s arch-foe Iran. Israeli leaders said Caracas’ posture was prompting a flight of Venezuelan Jews.

“This (Jewish) community is very active and prosperous, one which has contributed greatly to our society,” Guaido said in the interview.

Maduro, who retains the backing of Russia and China as well as control of state institutions including the military, casts Guaido’s rise as a US-orchestrated plot. Guaido says Maduro’s reelection last year was a sham.'

US preparing for military action in Venezuela: Cuba
http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2019/02/15/588590/Cuba-US-military-action-Venezuela





'The United States is moving its special forces closer to Venezuela as part of a covert plan to stage military intervention in the South American country, which has been engulfed by unrest over the past weeks.

Cuba said in a “Declaration of the Revolutionary Government” on Thursday that recent events in Venezuela, where US-backed opposition Juan Guaido has been challenging the leadership of President Nicolas Maduro, amounted to an attempted coup that had so far failed.

US President Donald Trump’s administration has refused to rule out direct military action against Maduro to force him step down and hand over power to Guaido, the head of Venezuela’s National Assembly. Havana said that Washington has been expanding the presence of its forces in neighboring countries.

Quote
“Between February 6 and 10 military transport aircraft have flown to the Rafael Miranda Airport of Puerto Rico, the San Isidro Air Base, in the Dominican Republic and to other strategically located Caribbean islands, probably without knowledge of the governments of those nations,” the declaration said.

“These flights originated in American military installations from which units of Special Operations and Marine Corps operate, which are used for covert actions,” it added.


Tens of thousands of Venezuelans have thronged the streets of Venezuela over the past weeks, holding rallies in support and against Maduro, who began his second six-year term in office last month.

The clashes began after Guaido proclaimed himself “interim president” and urged Maduro to resign.'

US military planes with ‘humanitarian aid’ bound for Venezuela after new sanctions
http://www.rt.com/news/451597-venezuela-us-aid-military/





Waving both the carrot and the stick at Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, Washington hit Caracas with fresh sanctions and said it will use the military to send humanitarian aid to the crisis-stricken country.

The sanctions add to a growing pile of financial penalties the US has applied to Maduro’s government in recent weeks. They target the country’s state-owned oil company PDVSA, and five officials "in charge of Maduro's security and intelligence apparatus, which has systematically violated human rights and suppressed democracy, including through torture and other brutal use of force,” in the words of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

While squeezing the country’s beleaguered economy with the intention to oust Maduro, the Trump administration is offering aid to those Venezuelans willing to back its handpicked “president” Juan Guaido. On Saturday, the US military will fly 250 tons of humanitarian aid to the Colombian town of Cucuta, on the border with Venezuela, according to a State Department email seen by the Associated Press. On Friday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that “massive humanitarian assistance” would be on its way to the region this weekend. While US military aircraft will be used, a Pentagon official told the Washington Post that these planes will deliver the supplies of food, medicine and hygiene products, before returning to the US.



Getting the deliveries into Venezuela is a different story. Maduro has already rejected American aid, denouncing the shipments as “crumbs” and pretext for an invasion. US National Security Adviser John Bolton no doubt helped stoke these fears with his not-so-subtle hint that the US might send“5,000 troops to Colombia.”

Critics of the Trump administration’s push for regime change in Caracas have also pointed out that Elliott Abrams – the State Department’s recently appointed special envoy for Venezuela – ordered the delivery of weapons to US-backed rebels in Nicaragua under the guise of “humanitarian aid” back in 1986.

Despite declaring himself interim president last month and being recognized by the US, Guaido ultimately has no say over whether the aid is allowed in. Nevertheless, he told supporters at a rally on Wednesday that he would ensure the supplies get in by next weekend, and “ordered” Venezuela’s armed forces to let them in.'

Venezuela kicks out 'interventionist' team of European MPs coming to meet with Guaido
http://www.rt.com/news/451702-venezuela-delegation-mep-expelled/





A six-member European delegation that sought to meet with self-proclaimed Venezuelan 'interim president' Juan Guaido is getting expelled from Venezuela after being accused by Caracas of coming with "conspiratorial purposes."

The European MPs arrived in Venezuela on Sunday and were supposed to stay in the country until Tuesday to carry out a series of meetings, including with Guaido, the leader of the opposition recognized by a number of European governments as the legitimate leader of Venezuela.

These plans, however, went awry shortly after their landing, when the MPs got a cold welcome from the Venezuelan authorities that are now deporting them back to Europe, according to delegation member Esteban González Pons. Pons tweeted that upon arrival, their passports were seized and the deportation procedure was launched. The politician, who hails from Spain's liberal conservative Peoples' Party, said that he was part of the "first international delegation invited by president Guaido."



"We are being kicked out today. Tomorrow we will come back to a free Venezuela," he tweeted, calling their looming expulsion from the country "the final proof that options are over, and the EU shall withdraw from the Contact Group."'

When Considering Venezuela’s Guaidó, Remember Victoria Nuland
http://21stcenturywire.com/2019/02/15/when-considering-venezuelas-guaido-remember-victoria-nuland/





'<strong>As Washington’s Secret Team continues to line-up its guns against the elected government led by Nicholas Maduro in Venezuela, it’s worth reminding viewers of another recently executed regime change operation – a portion of which was caught on tape – where US State Department officials could be heard discussing their new hand-picked, post-coup government in the Ukraine.</strong>

When the latest phase of the current crisis in Venezuela broke in the middle of January, cabinet officials in Washington immediately declared the elected government in Caracas as “illegitimate,” and put forward their own hand-picked “interim president.” US National Security Advisor John Bolton started the ball rolling by boldly announcing, “The United States does not recognize Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro’s illegitimate claim to power. His ‘election’ in May 2018 was viewed internationally as not free, fair or credible.” Bolton’s proclamation was followed by a TV decree by US Vice President Mike Pence formally recognizing a previously unknown opposition parliamentarian, Juan Guaido, as Washington’s new choice for president of Venezuela. This was then followed by a tweet from President Trump: “The citizens of Venezuela have suffered for too long at the hands of the illegitimate Maduro regime,” before adding, “Today, I have officially recognized the President of the Venezuelan National Assembly, Juan Guaido, as the Interim President of Venezuela.” President Trump then upped the ante, warning Maduro that “all options are on the table,” clearly implying the possibility of military intervention by Washington. While the general public may never be privy to behind-the-scenes conference calls between the likes of Bolton, Elliot Abrams, Jimmy Story and Guaido, it is extremely instructive to revisit the infamous 2014 leaked phone call between then Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, Victoria Nuland, and US Ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt – a stunning leak which reveals exactly how Washington appointees were in fact micro-managing their new putsch regime in Kiev – completely outside of the country’s democratic process.

Maduro slams Trump’s ‘Nazi-like’ rhetoric
http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2019/02/19/588937/Venezuela-Maduro-US-Trump-Nazilike





'Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro has denounced US President Donald Trump's “Nazi-style” rhetoric in which he threatened the Latin American country’s military forces with dire consequences if they continue to stand with Maduro's elected government.

Speaking to a crowd in Miami on Monday, Trump urged the Venezuelan military to drop their allegiance to Maduro; otherwise, he said, they would “find no safe harbor, no easy exit, and no way out. You’ll lose everything.” Maduro responded to Trump’s “arrogant orders” to the Venezuela military in a televised speech on Monday, asking, “Who is the commander-in-chief of the Bolivarian national armed force? Donald Trump from Miami?”

Quote
“They believe with their arrogance and their contempt of us... they believe themselves to be owners of the country, and Donald Trump believes in the power to give orders and that the Bolivarian national armed forces will carry out the orders [by] him,” Maduro said.


He said he had authorized Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino Lopez “to respond with all the morality of our national Bolivarian armed forces to Donald Trump, the head of the empire.”

The Venezuelan military has remained loyal to Maduro — who won a second six-year term in the presidential election last year — amid a political and economic crisis gripping the country.

Maduro has repeatedly accused the Trump administration of pushing for a coup d’état in Caracas.'

Marco Rubio at Venezuela border warns Maduro's troops against "crime" of blocking aid

https://cbsnews.com/news/venezuela-marco-rubio-warns-nicolas-maduro-troops-crime-block-humanitarian-aid/

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio visited a border staging point for U.S. aid to Venezuela on Sunday and warned soldiers loyal to socialist President Nicolas Maduro that it will be a "crime against humanity" if they block entry of the goods that are being channeled through Maduro's rivals.

An enthusiastic throng of Venezuelan migrants, some chanting "Rubio! Liberty," met the Florida Republican as he visited Cucuta and held a news conference in sight of a border bridge that has been flooded in recent months by people fleeing the hardships of Venezuela's hyperinflation and severe shortages of food and medicine.

The U.S. has used military and civilian aircraft to fly in food and personal care aid in an effort meant to undermine Maduro and dramatize his government's inability to overcome shortages of food and medicine. The aid is supposed to be moved into Venezuela on Feb. 23 by supporters of congressional leader Juan Guaido, who is recognized by the U.S. and dozens of other countries as Venezuela's legitimate president.

Maduro is using troops to block the aid from entering, saying it is not needed and is part of a U.S.-orchestrated attempt to overthrow him.

Rubio warned Venezuelan soldiers that blocking aid would be an international "crime against humanity." He said in Spanish that soldiers who keep aid shipments from entering would spend "the rest of their lives hiding from justice."

‘Nothing to do with aid or democracy’: Roger Waters slams Branson's ‘humanitarian’ concert for Venezuela
http://www.rt.com/news/451877-roger-waters-branson-aid-concert-venezuela/





'Pink Floyd ex-frontman Roger Waters is slamming Virgin tycoon Richard Branson’s aid concert for Venezuela as a sham, warning fans and performers not to be “led down a garden path that ends in regime change.”

Branson’s “Venezuela Aid Live” concert “has nothing to do with the needs of the Venezuelan people, it has nothing to do with democracy, it has nothing to do with freedom, and it has nothing to do with aid,” Waters declared in a video released on Tuesday.












The musician and political activist tore into the western media narrative depicting Venezuela as the victim of a humanitarian crisis created by socialism. “There is no civil war, no mayhem, no murder, no apparent dictatorship, no mass imprisonment of opposition, no suppression of the press” under President Nicolas Maduro, he said, citing friends “on the ground” in Caracas who could confirm this.

Venezuela Aid Live will take place on Friday in the Colombian border city of Cucuta. Branson has announced a fundraising target of $100 million to purchase food and medicine for Venezuelans suffering the privations of socialism – or US sanctions, depending on which version of the narrative one prefers.

Waters reserved special scorn for Branson himself, “with his bleeding heart worn openly upon his Virgin Airways t-shirt,” claiming the magnate has bought into US propaganda. A spokesperson for Branson told the National Post that the US was “not involved in any aspect of this” and that the concert was “not a political statement.”'

Exposing Neocons Is Becoming Mainstream Again - Excellent






'American Conservative has published an article titled “Why Are These Professional War Peddlers Still Around?”, an excerpt from a book by Fox’s Tucker Carlson, which documents neoconservative thought leaders Max Boot and Bill Kristol’s consistent track record of supporting spectacularly awful US war policies. Carlson goes over the many, many acts of military interventionism which have been pushed for by these two legendary failmeisters, documents what they predicted would happen as the result of that interventionism (freedom, democracy and prosperity) and what actually ended up happening instead (needless death, terrorism and chaos), and marvels at how they both somehow remain in positions of high esteem with high-profile, high-paying jobs.

The article was shared today on Twitter by Democratic Congressman Ro Khanna, who commented that Carlson “offers a devastating critique [of] interventionism and shows how much of the foreign policy establishment has failed the American people. There is an emerging, left right coalition of common sense for a foreign policy of restraint.” Khanna has received a predictable amount of backlash from the left for this tweet, as does anyone who mentions the possibility of cross-ideological coalitions against US warmongering. The only cross-ideological convergence that many leftists find palatable in compensating for their relatively weak numbers is with the neoliberal, neoconservative corporate “center”, so-called only because the plutocratic class which benefits from the current Orwellian status quo has been able to buy up narrative control to force their agendas to become the mainstream consensus. The trouble with this, of course, is that that corporate CIA/CNN “center” never opposes US warmongering in any meaningful way. The left (the real left, not the “We call everyone we’re cluster bombing by their preferred gender pronouns” MSNBC faux-left) opposes US warmongering, and in some cases so too does the populist right which has uplifted Tucker Carlson to such prominence.'

‘PR stunt to justify intervention in Venezuela’: Experts slam US regime change ‘gangsterism’
http://www.rt.com/news/452274-venezuela-us-intervention-gangsterism/





The battle over ‘humanitarian convoys’ is just a big PR operation designed to provoke scenes of violence and justify further US intervention to oust Nicolas Maduro from power in Venezuela, political experts have told RT.

“This is an attempt to set out a pretext for some kind of intervention,” political analyst and journalist John Wight told RT. “The Red Cross and all the other international aid agencies are refusing to touch this because they know that this is a Trojan horse, deployed to try to foment the kind of scenes we're seeing at the border.” Considering the US history of regime-change operations in Latin America, in particular how the hawkish US envoy for Venezuela Elliott Abrams helped smuggle weapons into Nicaragua, William Mallinson, a professor at Guglielmo Marconi University in Italy, warned that “leopards don’t change their spots.”

Quote
We’re seeing a very big PR operation… US doesn’t care about welfare of Venezuelan people.


The crisis in Venezuela was to a high degree “directly caused by the United States' sanctions and embargoes,” Mallinson said, asserting that opposition leader Juan Guaido was simply picked by the US to do their bidding, selected to secure Washington’s political and economic interests.

While Mallinson stressed that the US-led ‘humanitarian’ intervention might be aimed at keeping the country “as much as possible away from Russia and China,” Wight slammed the American policies as a pure form of “gangsterism.”

“Does anybody really think that Donald Trump, Mike Pompeo, John Bolton Elliott Abrams care one bit about the welfare of the Venezuelan people?” he wondered, rhetorically. “These are thugs in tailored suits whose views are far closer to Al Capone than to Thomas Jefferson.”

This is gangsterism masquerading as statecraft.

“They want their hands on the oil, this regime change; and this is about US hegemony, red in tooth and claw,” Wight added.'

Domino effect: Pompeo vows US will help uproot ‘authoritarianism’ in Nicaragua & Cuba
http://www.rt.com/usa/452229-pompeo-cuba-nicaragua-venezuela/





The United States will help the people of Nicaragua and Cuba to resist “non-democratic regimes” in their countries, Mike Pompeo has said. His comments come as Washington steps up calls for a new government in Venezuela.

The secretary of state responded in the affirmative when asked during an interview with Telemundo if the US would “help” people living in “non-democratic regimes” in South America.

“Yes, President Trump’s administration has done so and will continue to do so. Not just in Venezuela but certainly in Nicaragua and Cuba,” Pompeo said, adding that the Washington is “working diligently to achieve good outcomes for those people.”



“The people need to lead those efforts. I’m convinced that they’re determined to do it as well. The American people will support them,” said Pompeo.

His comments come on the heels of an incendiary tweet from National Security Advisor John Bolton, who wrote that Nicaragua President Daniel Ortega’s “days are numbered” and that “the Nicaraguan people will soon be free.”'

Whether BBC journalists are aware of it or not, personal and institutional bias informs what information they present, and how they present it. And as Noam Chomsky told the BBC’s Andrew Marr in 1996, if BBC reporters presented information any other way, they simply wouldn’t be BBC reporters.

On 19 February, BBC correspondent Orla Guerin added to the neutrality myth, writing about the broadcaster’s coverage of Venezuela:

Quote
We don’t do propaganda. We call it they [sic] way we see it, even if that does not suit the pre-conceived idea/ideals that some have.


BBC journalists may very well ‘call it the way they see it’. But that far from suggests that they “don’t do propaganda”. The BBC’s decades-long agitation for intervention in Venezuela lays this assertion bare. <strong>Propaganda: a war of attrition</strong>

Narratives like these don’t form overnight:

Quote
a) the US promotes democracy abroad;
b) Venezuela is a brutal dictatorship.


Though both are demonstrably false, the media drip-feeds these narratives into public discourse until they seem like common sense. Like a war of attrition, this propaganda eats away at rational discourse until critical analysis appears an act of madness or evil.

The Canary spoke to David Edwards, one of two editors of award-winning media monitoring site Media Lens, about how the BBC reports on Western intervention. Edwards said:

Quote
The BBC is structurally, institutionally completely incapable of reporting honestly the crimes of the West and its allies.

It has never told even a fraction of the truth about US-UK crimes in Serbia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Palestine, Syria, Yemen, and so on. It has never reported these crimes or placed them in an accurate historical context, showing how the West has consistently attacked independent nationalists abroad in its determination to ensure that local tyrants armed and supported by ‘us’ suppress local people to the benefit of Western corporate interests. This framework of understanding is considered completely beyond the pale in ‘polite’ BBC discourse; it is not even thinkable for them.

US-backed opposition caught on VIDEO throwing Molotov cocktails at aid truck on Venezuela border
http://www.rt.com/news/452326-venezuela-us-aid-truck-protesters/


'As Washington and Caracas blame each other for torching a truck carrying what the US called vital ‘humanitarian supplies’ from Colombia to Venezuela, a video has emerged, finally shedding some light on the incident.

The truck caught fire and burned down during a failed attempt on Saturday by US-backed opposition activists to breach the closed Colombia-Venezuela border crossing at the Francisco de Paula Santander Bridge, near the Venezuelan city of Urena. The Venezuelan government refuses to let the American cargo in, calling these ‘humanitarian’ convoys a propaganda stunt and a precursor to a military invasion.

‘Sick & twisted’: US Senator Rubio tweets picture of Gaddafi’s murder as a threat to Maduro
http://www.rt.com/news/452329-rubio-gaddafi-venezuela-tweet/





US Senator Marco Rubio has posted a picture of the brutal murder of late Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in a less-than-subtle threat to Venezuela’s Maduro. Twitter blasted Rubio as a manic warmonger… who has extremely poor taste.

The two pictures –one showing Gaddafi while still in power, the other showing the Libyan leader being tortured minutes before his brutal murder– were posted by Sen. Rubio (R-FL) on Twitter without any caption. Yet, given his open calls for an armed insurrection in the Latin American country to depose President Nicolas Maduro, the message was clear.

A time to reflect on U.S. regime change adventures
http://theduran.com/a-time-to-reflect-on-u-s-regime-change-adventures/


'A time to reflect as we see America embark on more regime change adventures around the world while at the same time constantly provoking Russia, a powerful nuclear power.

2017 was the centenary of the creation of the world’s first Communist State, the Soviet Union, now dead, buried and gone forever, despite the current trend of the Western media to refer to a nonexistent communist Russian threat.

Even the Chinese government that uses the term ‘Communist’ when referring to itself only does so as a means of people ‘control’ whilst itself in fact is the most capitalist country that exists today.

The most extreme ideology in the world today comes from four countries: America, Britain, France and Israel not forgetting the totally corrupt EU bureaucracy that exists in Brussels. Focussing on these four country’s governments, we must demand change, which may well lead to revolutions. Witness what’s happening in present day France.

So lets advocate ‘regime changes’ through well monitored elections, not easily manipulated electronic ones but paper ballot ones. Beware of new technologies! Let’s aspire to true democracy. We must constantly remind ourselves that technological developments can be dangerous and harmful in the wrong hands, to humans as Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawkings told us repeatedly.

Let me pause to make something very clear about one of those four countries; Britain. The Monarchy, well to be more precise, the concept of Queen and Country, is, for many, sacrosanct. The Queen, for a number of people, embodies all that human beings should aspire to and commands great respect, not only for Brits. The same cannot, in good faith, successfully be argued for the rest of her family.'

EU warns against military action in Venezuela as Mike Pence and Juan Guaido meet at emergency summit
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/02/25/eu-warns-against-military-action-venezuela-mike-pence-juan-guaido/





'The European Union on Monday urged the United States and Latin American powers against launching a military intervention to oust the regime of Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela.

Venezuela's self-declared “interim president” Juan Guaido met with Mike Pence and Latin American leaders in neighbouring Colombia, to discuss the next steps in the crisis after a weekend of violence.

Mr Guaido, arriving in Bogota on Sunday night ahead of the meeting of the Lima Group, called on the international community to consider "all measures to free" Venezuela. The meeting was the first time that Mr Guaido, who declared himself president a month ago, has travelled abroad to meet other world leaders, and he was received as a head of state, with the red carpet rolled out. Mr Guaido and President Donald Trump have repeatedly said that all options are open. Mr Pence was expected to announce on Monday night that they had decided to increase the sanctions on Nicolas Maduro, the embattled president of Venezuela. Ahead of the meeting four Venezuelan officials were added to the already extensive list of sanctioned individuals.

On Monday he also called on Latin American allies to ramp up pressure on Caracas by transferring Venezuelan overseas assets to Mr Guaido.

A spokesman for Federica Mogherini, the EU diplomatic chief, urged those gathered in Bogota to stop short of declaring war.'

Major Media Rage Over the Thwarted Trump Regime’s Trojan Horse Aid Scam






Whenever the US goes to war, plans one, or stages color revolutions or old-fashioned coups to try toppling sitting governments, establishment media can be relied on to cheerlead what demands denunciation, operating as supportive imperial tools.

Venezuela is in the eye of US rage to topple its democratic government, wanting equity and justice in the country eliminated, replaced by corporate power looting its resources, enforcing serfdom on its people, transforming the state into a plantation for profit-making, police state harshness targeting nonbelievers.

With Venezuela’s borders blocked to prevent entry of Trump regime Trojan horse “aid,” a political stunt unrelated to helping its people, DLT hardliners knew in advance their scheme would fail.

It was prelude for the next round of war on Venezuela by other means, likely greater violence than already planned - to be wrongfully blamed on Maduro, US imperial victims consistently blamed for high crimes committed against them.

Commenting on what happened over the weekend, the self-styled newspaper of record NYT laughably called the stunt “badly needed food and medicine” - failing to explain the Trump regime’s motive or that the amount was a virtually meaningless gesture.

The Times ignored over 1,000 tons of genuinely welcomed legitimate aid supplied by Russia, China, Cuba and other countries, not an imperial stunt, more to come, donating countries wanting to help Venezuelans - countering the Trump’s war by other means, largely responsible for economic hard times.

The Times and other major media refuse to recognize Maduro’s legitimacy. Supporting usurper in waiting Guaido shows allegiance to the Trump regime’s coop plot, an affront to what democracy is all about. Pathetic Times videos moaned about “hope thwarted along with aid at Venezuela’s border,” another falsely accusing Maduro of “denying Venezuelas US aid” - deplorable propaganda rubbish no responsible editors would tolerate. Times editors featured them to their disgrace.

The neocon/CIA house organ Washington Post pretended that the Trump regime’s border stunt was legitimate aid, along with blaming Maduro for US-orchestrated violence, as well as torching two USAID trucks he and Venezuelan security forces had nothing to do with.

WaPo compounded its Big Lies by falsely accusing Venezuelan soldiers of using “live fire” - “according to some reports” it said without explaining they were fabricated on the Colombian and Brazilian side of Venezuela’s border - anti-Maduro propaganda, not credible information.

Thuggish US proxies bore full responsibility for live fire and other violence. Government forces responded in self-defense, largely with tear gas, no live fire intending to kill or injure.

The Wall Street Journal unleashed its paranoid propagandist/notorious history reinventor/pseudo-journalist Mary O’Grady - cheerleading usurper in waiting Guaido, denouncing Bolivarian social democracy, pretending Trump’s Saturday stunt was a genuine humanitarian effort.

She supports Latin and Central American tinpot despots, notably Colombian narco/terrorist president Ivan Duque, and Brazil’s tyrant Jair Bolsonaro. She abhors legitimate democrats like Maduro, turning truth on its head calling him a “dictator.”

Like all her rubbish, her latest propaganda piece was a litany of beginning-to-end bald-faced Big Lies, including falsely accusing Venezuelan security forces of “unleashing brutality against unarmed civilians.”

US proxies bear full responsibility for weekend violence, orchestrated by Washington, a familiar stunt, similar ones staged time and again in many countries, victims blamed for high crimes committed against them - including Pentagon terror-bombing on the phony pretext of combatting ISIS the US created and supports.

Mary what’s-her-name is a pathetic figure, unable even to lie well. Take everything she says with a grain of salt, best to avoid her altogether.

Globalist Kingpin Calls for Invasion of Venezuela





<strong

On February 22, the boss of the Council On Foreign Relations, Richard N. Haass, cited the so-called Responsibility to Protect (R2P) doctrine in response to the situation in Venezuela.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en">
<p dir="ltr" lang="en">What the Maduro regime is doing to the people of Venezuela is inconsistent with the obligations that come with being a sovereign state. The time has come for the UN or OAS or Lima Group to consider how to apply the Responsibility to Protect (R2P) doctrine. https://t.co/Ppum6DJaXS</p>
— Richard N. Haass (@RichardHaass) February 22, 2019[/size][/quote]

For instance, while the UN has pointed to Israel as a serial violator of R2P, no action has been taken to curb its ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity, certainly not sanctions or an invasion of Israel.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>

“If ever there was a group in need of protection from war crimes, crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing it is the Palestinians,” writes Stephen Gowans for Global Research. “And yet the Palestinians receive little outside help, relying on themselves, for the most part, for whatever little protection they can provide. Realpolitick prevents them from falling within the ambit of the responsibility to protect doctrine, the idea that ‘the international community,’ that is, Western governments led by the United States, should intervene in other countries to prevent genocide, mass killings and massive human rights abuses. Responsibility to protect (R2P) has given rise to campaigns for humanitarian intervention in Darfur, Myanmar and Zimbabwe, but not Gaza or the West Bank.” Moreover, this highly selective double standard does not apply to the United States and its so-called war on terror against manufactured enemies.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>

“The most extreme expressions of this cognitive dissonance occurred during the Obama administration, when the notion of U.S. exceptionalism was used to justify continuing the barbarism of the Bush administration’s so-called War on Terror,” explains Ajamu Baraka, the national organizer of the Black Alliance for Peace. “With this justification and the outrageous assertion that it was defending democracy, the U.S./EU/NATO axis of domination committed crimes against humanity and war crimes that resulted in the deaths of millions, while millions more were displaced and ancient cities, nations and peoples were destroyed.”

A WIN/Gallup International survey of people in 65 countries conducted in 2014 found most of those surveyed consider the US the greatest threat to world peace, followed by Pakistan (now apparently at war with India), and China.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>

Richard Haass is naturally a hypocrite and his tweet reveals what the ruling elite want for Venezuela—a return to the status quo before Hugo Chávez: all the nation’s wealth owned by a small oligarchic elite and parceling out of its vast oil reserve to transnational corporations.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>

In 1995, before Chávez’s ascension, the poverty rate in Venezuela stood at 55%. As the chart below shows, in 1999 extreme poverty was at 23.4%.<span class="Apple-converted-space"> </span>




When the geopolitical ignoramus Donald Trump and his foreign policy handlers—Pence, Pompeo, Bolton, and Abrams—talk about “democracy,” they are talking about returning Venezuela to its vassal state with accompanying mass poverty and disenfranchisement.

The people of Venezuela know this and are ready to fight against the neoliberal diktat of poverty and international bankster imposed debt.
