Anyone Buying This Venezuela Bullshit Is A Complete Fucking Moron

Public Policy

#VenezuelaAidLive is trending on Twitter in the USA as I write this, forced to the forefront of public consciousness and into everyone’s eyeballs by a concert staged by billionaire plutocrat Richard Branson. Branson’s Virgin Group controls hundreds of companies and brings in some $21 billion annually, with Branson himself valued at around five billion dollars.

The concert is pure narrative control operation, designed to advance the proven lie that the Venezuelan government is shutting out all humanitarian aid from its people, and the proven lie that it has blockaded a bridge to prevent the aid from getting through, both of which are also currently being promoted by American mainstream media despite being thoroughly disproven. In reality, the Venezuelan government has been taking in humanitarian aid from all around the world to help its people, just not from America’s regime change operation that is so blatant even NPR recognizes it, and the bridge Branson has been posing in front of for his “billionaire philanthropist” photo ops has never been open for travel.

They’re lying to us about Venezuela. Anyone with access to alternative media has access to the fact that they’re lying to us about Venezuela. We know this for a fact. We also know for a fact that Venezuela has the largest proven oil reserves on planet Earth, and that in spite of all these appeals to the humanitarian impulses of the US empire the Trump administration is openly interested in controlling that oil. We also know for a fact that US interventionism in modern times is consistently disastrous, and consistently never truly about humanitarianism. We also know for a fact that PNAC neocon Elliott Abrams, who is spearheading this “humanitarian aid” initiative, has previously used humanitarian aid as a pretext for arming militia groups in Nicaragua.

If you have access to alternative media, all of these facts are easily available to you. If all of these facts are easily available to you, and yet you still support the US government’s interventionism in Venezuela, you are a complete fucking moron.

That’s really all I wanted to say here. I have less than zero respect for those who join with Donald Trump, John Bolton, Elliott Abrams, Benjamin Netanyahu, Jair Bolsonaro, Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, Fox News and MSNBC in manufacturing consent for this agenda, and I don’t care who gets their feelings hurt by my saying so. If you’ve been a longtime reader of mine and you still support Trump’s starvation sanctions, CIA ops, grooming and attempted installation of US vassal Juan Guaidó, and brazen propaganda war upon the minds of the unsuspecting US populace with the goal of toppling a sovereign nation’s government, then my writing hasn’t gotten through to you and you have gotten nothing out of it.

I’ve interacted with so many Trump supporters since I started this gig who claim to be anti-interventionist and anti-neocon, yet once their president started ramping up yet another neocon regime change intervention in yet another resource-rich country just like Bush and Obama before him, they fell right in line just like Bush and Obama’s supporters did. Ask them why and they’ll mumble something inarticulate about the absence of US boots on the ground (a point Obama’s defenders also made about Libya and Syria) or about hating socialism, but in reality the reason they support Trump’s regime change interventionism in yet another oil-rich country is because they are foam-brained human livestock who believe whatever the leader of their tribe tells them to.

Not all Trump voters have done this, but many of them have. For the most part those who continue to support this president are at best deadly silent on Venezuela, and are at worst actively cheering this bullshit on with everything they’ve got.

I actually have more respect for the people who have always been plugged into the CIA/CNN narrative than I have for those who saw through it during Obama’s interventions but not during Trump’s. Someone who has always been plugged into the mainstream narratives on US regime change interventionism is like a guy with his head up his ass. Someone who saw through Obama’s depravity in Libya and Syria but fails to do the same with Venezuela is like a guy who pulled his head out of his ass, then soaked his hair with lube and willfully re-inserted it.

There is no excuse for supporting this administration’s obvious lies and sociopathic interventionism in a sovereign nation. None.

Wise the fuck up, people.

    It is a bad technique to resist the US directly. It is better to let them move in like in Vietnam, open the door witha smile and let them unroll their politics, and then viciously terrorize them to exhaustion once the population is fed up, on site.
    Terrorism always work to drive away colonist when done vicioulsy.

    I am enjoying behaving like juanpee does. Who cares anymore. I may ignore him in a week or so. Scumbags like you clogged, need your ass kicked daily when you say dirty things. You say the same shit over and over so there really is nothing new in these conversations.

    EU contemplating postponing Brexit with two years.

    http://www.spiegel.de/politik/ausland/brexit-eu-erwaegt-offenbar-verschiebung-um-zwei-jahre-a-1254907.html

    Source:

    https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/feb/24/brexit-could-be-delayed-until-2021-eu-sources-reveal

    This would only materialize if on March 29, no deal has been agreed upon.

    The upshot is that the no-deal option as default would be off the table. Nobody really wants a no-deal, not the EU, not a majority in British parliament, not in the British public. Only Tory hardliners want it and Jeremy Lenin “secretly” wants it, although he can’t admit it.

    The problem is entirely in British politics, that essentially can’t make up its mind (can’t break the deadlock).

    The move could also be seen as adding pressure to hardliners to accept the Barnier-Raab deal, the only Brexit that can be had now.

    The move would create time to consider other options like “Norway” or “Canada”.

    OMG, you mean we are going to have daily cloggie bexit briefings for another two years??? that calls for a makato ^_^

  8. Cloggie on Sun, 24th Feb 2019 3:58 pm 

    Unlikely. The topic would disappear to the backrooms of politics. We will be forced to talk about peak oil again.

    Yes, life can be that hard.

    “Venezuela Struggles To Find Buyers For Its Oil After U.S. Sanctions”
    https://tinyurl.com/y5lgv6sm

    “A week after the U.S. sanctions were announced, people familiar with the matter told The Journal that Venezuelan oil exports are sharply falling while oil storage tanks in the country are filling up, as Nicolas Maduro’s regime is struggling to find new buyers for Venezuela’s oil. The U.S. sanctions not only cut off Venezuela’s exports to the United States—its key outlet market until a few weeks ago—but also ban U.S. exports of naphtha to Venezuela, which the country uses to dilute its thick heavy oil to make it flow. Analysts expect that a shortage of diluents could accelerate from this month the already steadily declining Venezuelan oil production and exports. “

    “Caught in the middle of Venezuela’s power struggle, a worried China weighs its options”
    https://tinyurl.com/y2x9wr7k

    “Chinese officials in Caracas and Beijing ponder how to deal with self-declared interim president Juan Guaido Future of Chinese oil projects in Venezuela and nearly US$20 billion of unpaid debt at stake”

    “The carrot, he said, was reassuring China it would continue to have a place in Venezuela’s energy economy under an opposition-led government. The stick was the not-so-subtle warning that Guaido and a future opposition government would review all deals Beijing had made with Chavez and Maduro, including Chinese loans-for-oil arrangements. “If they find these deals were not legally and legitimately approved by the national assembly, and arguably all the deals could be found to fit this category, then a Guaido-led government would have reason to restructure or completely repudiate those deals,” Ferchen said. “This leaves a lot of negotiating room for both sides.”

    “By contrast, China’s and even Russia’s economic contributions to Venezuela are eclipsed by one nation: the US; or at least they had been before US President Donald Trump imposed sanctions against oil company PDVSA, seeking to cripple the Maduro government by cutting off its main source of cash. The US and dozens of other Western and Latin American countries have recognised Juan Guaido as Venezuela’s rightful interim head of state. The US and dozens of other Western and Latin American countries have recognised Juan Guaido as Venezuela’s rightful interim head of state. “The repeated mention of China’s and Russia’s loans to Venezuela ignores the fact that the US has long been the largest trading partner of Venezuela, importing between US$15 million and US$25 billion worth of oil annually,” Creutzfeldt said. “Washington’s lifeline to Caracas has been far more substantial than Beijing’s or Moscow’s. The role Beijing and Moscow play in actually sustaining Maduro is vastly exaggerated,” he said. Ferchen, the Latin America-China expert, said at this point, Chinese and Russian diplomatic and symbolic support for Maduro “is as important or more important [to Guaido] than any near-term financial support they might provide”.

    – Labour backs referendum

    – EU offers delay Brexit of 21 months

    These 2 major developments should increase pressure on Brexiteers that the May-deal is the best Brexit they could hope for. Take it or run the risk of Remain.

    Breakthrough tonight in Bitain: no-deal Brexit is as good as ruled out:

    “Theresa May is set to RULE OUT No-Deal Brexit after 15 ministers threaten to quit in extraordinary mass revolt at secret meeting – as three ‘implore’ the PM to extend the deadline to ‘prevent disaster’ in letter to the Mail”

    The UK is NOT going to be a US colony as in 51st state.

  17. Antius on Mon, 25th Feb 2019 5:19 pm 

    Extending the brexit deadline changes nothing. If these useless people could not reach a satisfactory agreement in 3 years, why would another three or six months or even 21 make a difference? Why delay the inevitable?

  18. Anonymouse on Mon, 25th Feb 2019 6:20 pm 

    RoFL, good thing we have cloggfraud with his Brexit-by-the-hour status updates.

    Thanks cloggraham. If not for your endless, by-the-minute play-by-plays I don’t know what we would have done. Like, I dont know, maybe actually comment on the actual article?…. which is about fooking Valenzuela, which, is, get ready for it….not Britain.

    Here is a basic geography update slash primer for you cloggstain. Venezuela is nowhere near Britain. Hell it is not even in the same hemisphere, do you realize that? No, you don’t? Of course not.

    However, Im going to give you one retard point credit since there is a massive picture of Richard Branson, who actually IS a brit, in the article. So, as tenuous as that linkage is, at least it is more than you usually have to work with, since you are kind of troll that can, and will, drop multiple Brexit references even in articles devoted to say, manure composting in Montana.

    “Extending the brexit deadline changes nothing.”

    Everything has changed. The default no-deal no longer is default:

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6746049/PM-holds-crisis-Cabinet-sign-two-month-Brexit-delay.html

    All of a sudden, the majority against no-deal, suddenly found a way to avoid no-deal. May is now owned by the Remainers, not by the ERG anymore.

    If parliament votes down Barnier-Raab, Remain has become more likely than Leave.

    This could provide the impetus towards a soft-Brexit.
