The Truth About What’s Happening In Venezuela Right Now Is Not What The Media Is Reporting

Public Policy

There have been a lot of things going on lately. The massive demonstrations in support to our Constitutional president Juan Guaido have unchained a LOT of repression and retaliation by those trying to avoid the dismemberment of the last stronghold of the Maduro and Castro gangs.

This is inevitable though. The suffering has been unbelievable and the cost in human lives, too high for those responsible to achieve some kind of agreement.

The media is trying to hide the truth about what’s really going on.

Lots of rumors have been plaguing the social networks. The media are not broadcasting anything that could compromise them. There is a TOTAL media blackout. The institution created by Hugo Chavez as a means to censure and control the media, CONATEL, has issued a prohibition of the name of the president under severe penalties.

The control of the people by force is achieving levels only seen in other countries, like the civil war in Guatemala or Nicaragua. There have been random (and some of them very calculated) kidnappings, children 13 and 14 years old being imprisoned, including girls, it has been quite messy.

There are lots of rumors in the social networks and the information has to be carefully picked up.

All of this confirms that our institutions, ALL OF THEM have been infiltrated, and they are under the control of people obeying foreign interests. Our officers of all ranks are being held hostage, and getting under prison without warning, based only on suspicious behavior. Generals and colonels included. Troops have NO ACCESS TO AMMO and this is an act of war.

In time, the role of Cuba will come to light on all this. There is enough evidence and testimony about how they controlled and provided advice so the gang could band together and implement a spying system to get all of the military under their iron fist. Nothing new here, indeed. KGB did this successfully for 50 years in the former URSS. Their Caribbean version, though, is going to be crushed in this next few days.

The situation has become a lot more dangerous and people are being warned to stay home.

There are some strong warnings to the citizens: avoid to leave home unless necessary, and keep a low profile on the streets. This situation can be easily turned into messy bloodshed if some thug too high on coke happens to squeeze the trigger and shoots a foreign trooper.

I have been told that in some places (especially Caracas) there are VStroms (all-terrain bike patrols) all over the place, with one soldier armed in the backseat. I mean hordes of them. I have seen videos with 30 or 35 bikes roaming, as a minimum. And as usual, the gangs called Colectivos are intended to pacify the streets, shooting to the demonstrations and creating chaos. However…the last demonstrations have been MASSIVE. I am pretty sure that some record has been broken this time in the area of human concentration.

All of this has roots back in time. Cuba has tried to influence throughout many years in our country. They needed desperately access to our resources. Especially after the Special Period, the so-called famine episode that they experienced after the fall of the Soviet world. They hated Venezuela because of our wealthy land, our excess of resources, and mostly, our happiness.

I had personal friendly relationships (at first) with some people that were in charge of the transportation of medical personnel, back in its time. They told that many of them were not specialists at all and that their criticism to our way of life was especially poisonous. Even our taste for good food, whiskey, and imported perfumes was something these guys saw with bad eyes.

WTF? I mean, you´re in a foreign country, supposedly assisting poor people in their health…and talk crap about how we like to live?… Come on. This was just an indication about what was about to come.

There are people who want to trick us into enslavement.

There is already a precedent of this animosity against my noble country. They tried to invade via the Bahia of Machurucuto, in the coastal line, back in the 60s. The population of a small town called the National Army and they were absolutely defeated. Their number seems now a joke, but the mere attempt says a lot about that.

Some people of that town remembers their words: ”we come to give you freedom”…but they lied. They came to enslave us.

This was a general trend, and it was the golden age of the guerrilla forces. They had agents recruiting in our state universities, taking advantage of the system, and using them as conspirative centers. One of the most acknowledged military leaders of the country, Carlos Peñaloza, knows the history. His videos are on the web. Activate the translation and you will see what he has to say. He also has a book written in Spanish.

If you need any help with this, I could write an entire article just translating that video. It has lots of important information to describe how deep and how long ago was this infiltration of our system and institutions. There was a lot of permissivity here.

I remember having read that some time before El Caracazo, one of the worst internal conflicts in Caracas and the country…we had the “visit” of the infamous Fidel, and rumors are that some of the members of his gang were left behind to assist the left in the preparation of that attack.

I strongly believe now in this, because I remember some university buddies mentioning the high level of organization that some barrios that opposed to the army presented, and the training in shooting war weaponry. They were there and saw everything, and I trust in their word.

This was the mistake that allowed it all to happen.

This was one of the worst mistakes in all this chain of events that led to the arrival of Hugo to the chair. Yes, he had formidable support, as a person of supposed integrity and coming from humble origins. But he used the trust of the people, turning against ourselves, and making a mess of a miserable military barracks what was once a decent country to live in, albeit harmed by corruption, that had been permeating all layers of our society.

The lack of seriousness, despite being one of our best character traits, played all these years against us. If there is something we are guilty of, is that and I acknowledge to it. Another trait could be a chronic lack of planning for the future. I don’t conceive a prepper in Venezuela (but, again, I am not your typical Venezuelan anymore), and talking to some people about crisis and how to prepare, I just received collective bullying and jokes. I am the one now with my family well-fed and with a roof over their heads without having to make too much more than regular activities just like anybody else, and much more comfortable.

People are afraid to leave their homes and stores are not open at night.

This said, in my old neighborhood, there is a local shutdown. Shops around my subdivision are closed, and opening a few hours before night arrives. People are hunkering down in their homes, only visiting each other inside their same enclosed subdivision. I guess more than one who was disobedient of the disarm law is preparing a good arsenal, provided that some thugs come to knock on their doors.

A person whom I contacted just today in Caracas told me that there is a very strange environment. People in the streets, mostly in the demonstrations, yes, lots of people. But there are some places almost empty, and the feeling is someone she never had felt. In the parks, there were not even birds in the trees. Told her that Mother Nature is wise, and perhaps they knew something was about to come.

There was a nasty rumor about children being kidnapped by the NGs, and it has not been confirmed so far. Foreign intelligence seems to be working extra hours. They should look for improving their escape plans, because the number of people who are going to be after them once some armed support is provided, will make Libyan unrest look like a picnic. There are enough people harmed by the brutality of those holding the guns. If they have resisted this far, is because what will happen once their show weakness.

Even the military is being controlled and is not being given ammo.

Another report I have that perhaps help to those skeptics to understand why the Army has not responded, and it is because the control of the ammo is total. The regular troopers are not receiving ammunition. Sometimes they use the AKs to control people, but their mags are empty.

Shotgun shells and tear gas are distributed only to some specific personnel. That reinforces the theory that says many of them are convicts, taken out from the jails to do the dirty job that officers don’t want to do (but I am sure that more than one LEO is guilty of shooting). With a minister of prisons like that woman (won’t type her name, but you could google it) anything is possible.

Going back on topic, this lack of ammo is what has slowed down (but not stopped) the military personnel to offer resistance. I am more than sure that if “someone” makes available a lot of AK ammo to a good portion of middle-rank officers, they would use it wisely.

    Well, one thing is for sure, Juan Guaido is NOT the “Constitutional” President. In fact he didn’t even run in the election, just proclaimed himself President. Doesn’t sound very democratic. Anyway, it’s a real mess and nobody seems to actual be helpful in solving the problems. Really sad for the people of Venezuela.

    I wonder how the USA would do if the many sanctions were against it and not Venezuela.

  6. JuanP on Wed, 6th Feb 2019 8:40 am 

    “Venezuela to redirect US oil exports to Europe and Asia”
    https://www.rt.com/business/450787-venezuela-pdvsa-exports-redirect/

    The USA’s illegal actions against Venezuela over the last 20 years are slowly but surely destroying that country. The new illegal US sanctions and criminal confiscation of Venezuelan property will finish it off. The Venezuelans deserve this because they should have disassociated completely from the USA and sold their property in the USA and repatriated that wealth more than a decade ago. What the USA is doing is thoroughly illegal, but what Venezuela did is criminally stupid. Let this be a warning to all others; the USA will lie, murder, cheat, break the law, and steal in its failed attempts to become a global hegemon.

  7. Gaia on Wed, 6th Feb 2019 12:33 pm 

    The best way to resolve conflicts is by dialogue, not brute force. Venezuelans never threatened America and Trump should leave the rest of the world alone in peace and quiet (Nobody has the right to suffer).

    Why not set the minimum wage at $1000 per hour and rents at $10 per month? Free money!

    Everyone knows that the USSR was such a huge success. What could go wrong?

  9. kanon on Thu, 7th Feb 2019 8:19 am 

    I think the story is the upper 5% to 10% economic class in Venezuela has been rebelling against the “Chavista” working class government, with the help and encouragement of the CIA. The economic blockade and boycott of Venezuela is partly by the oligarchs who cut off of consumer goods and by the U.S. through sanctions and denying money and financial access. The counterfeiting campaign does not get the attention it deserves, as it was very successful in destroying the currency. The oil reserves are the obvious reason for U.S. involvement, of course. On the global macro scale, only Russia, Iran, and Venezuela have large oil reserves that are not under the economic control of the banking cartel. For ordinary people, the media information on Venezuela has been almost total propaganda for some time, so we do not know the “truth” and likely never will. Time will tell whether an oil-rich country can be divided by civil and class conflict, punished by foreign powers, and remain as a sovereign nation. Few gave Cuba a chance, but it succeeded. Will Venezuela withstand the assault or be pushed into colonial status?

  10. Davy on Thu, 7th Feb 2019 8:52 am 

    Colonial status?? Venezuela is already “colonial status” with China and Russia. The US has been marginalized in Venezuela for years only recently has the US succeeded with meddling efforts. Venezuela is a failing narco military state and most of the failure is related to corrupt socialism of a Venezuela style.

  11. JuanP on Thu, 7th Feb 2019 9:10 am 

    Venezuela was essentially a US colony from its independence until Chavez became president, just like most of Latin America. China and Russia are not colonial powers ruling over Venezuela, like the US was and wants to be again, they are Venezuela’s allies. Most Americans, as Davy proves, wouldn’t understand the difference.

  12. JuanP on Thu, 7th Feb 2019 9:13 am 

    Kanon nailed it, and the Exceptionalist can’t face the truth, as usual. Some things never change! LOL!

  13. Davy on Thu, 7th Feb 2019 11:30 am 

    “China and Russia are not colonial powers ruling over Venezuela, like the US was and wants to be again, they are Venezuela’s allies. Most Americans, as Davy proves, wouldn’t understand the difference.”

    China and Russia have been bankrolling a failing and corrupt government for years now. They have given money to Maduro’s cabal or military and his elites while most of the people are hardly making it. Now deeply indebted to these two nations Venezuela is in a debt trap. It cannot afford to pay these economic “colonial” powers and invest in the people and the oil industry. JuanP doesn’t understand this because he is a blind bias anti-American that considers all problems US instigated. He has little understanding of the deeper points of finance or economics as his rare on topic comments attest to.

  14. Mitch on Thu, 7th Feb 2019 11:49 am 

    About Jose (The Author)

    “Jose is an upper middle class professional. He is a former worker of the oil state company with a Bachelor’s degree from one of the best national Universities.”

    “Jose has gotten his family out of Venezuela. They are currently setting up a new life in another country.”

    So yah, a member of the upper 5% to 10% economic class.

  15. Mitch on Thu, 7th Feb 2019 11:51 am 

    Comment on the article:

    “My deepest sympathies to the people of Venezuela. They are all guilty of the same thing as the people of Syria, Libya, and Iran, being oil rich nations that wanted to share their oil revenues with their citizens, rather than our oil companies, and all have government owned central banks, rather than privately owned central banks.”

    “They hate us for our freedoms. Our freedom is to steal their oil, murder their citizens, destroy their nations, and then lend them money with interest to rebuild their nations.”

    “our constitutional president Juan Guaido…”

    “After reading that line in this article I knew three things for sure.”

    “1) the author cannot be from Venezuela, as the Venezuelan constitution has no provision whatsoever to make the speaker of the National assembly president (and certainly not by the latter just declaring himself president with no mandate whatsoever, apart from Mike Pence calling him to do so).”

    “2)Hence, “our” is a blatant lie, as much as is “constitutional president”.”

    “3)So the article starts out with two bold-faced lies, hence I suppose the rest must indeed be as “truthful”. LOL!!”

    “This is just an extremely poorly written propaganda hitpiece serving the deep shit neocon regime changers. Written by someone afar who pretends to educate us about the “truth on the ground” in a country that he most likely never ever even visited?!”

    “Embarrassing!”

  20. Cloggie on Thu, 7th Feb 2019 11:58 am 

    What Kanon says.

    However, it needs to be admitted that Chavez and Maduro did little good to Venezuela.

    Capitalism + limited redistribution is the best you can hope for.

    Free petrol and price controls on food, so nobody produces food anymore are disastrous.

    Both Venezuela and Saudi-Arabia have 27 million inhabitants.

    GDP per capita:

    KSA $53k
    Venezuela $12k

    Why this difference?

    Oil production

    KSA 10 mbd

    https://www.bloomberg.com/graphics/2018-venezuela-oil/

    Venezuela: max 3.5 mbd in 2002 down to 1.3 mbd now

    The situation got worse in August 2017, when U.S. President Donald Trump imposed financial sanctions against Venezuela and its state oil company PDVSA in a bid to punish Maduro for the economic mismanagement and endemic corruption.

    Criminally insane. Fighting fire with oil.

    “…The massive demonstrations in support to our Constitutional president Juan Guaido have unchained a LOT of repression and retaliation by those trying to avoid the dismemberment of the last stronghold of the Maduro and Castro gangs…”

    “I could hardly get past that statement without spitting out my coffee and it was in this author’s first paragraph.”

    “Maduro’s opposition decided to sit out the last election rather than run its candidates and now Juan Guaido without having received one single vote and with no constitutional basis whatsoever has declared himself to be the rightful president.”

    “The US government is doing what the US government always does; it’s interfering in the affairs of another countries government at the behest of the globalists and their international corporations and banks.”

    “Does anyone really believe that they would be the least bit interested in Venezuela if they didn’t have the world’s largest proven oil reserves? If all Venezuela had was bananas, the ruling elite wouldn’t care if they cloned Adolf Hitler.”

    “This author’s email address must be @exxonmobil.com or more likely @chevron.com since the Chevron refinery in Corpus Christi, Texas is specifically designed to refine the low-grade crude from Venezuela.”

    Well, being Britch in Australia you are naturally down on the US. I understand that. I am naturally down on extremist anti-Americans for their emotional hatred of the US for any and all reasons. Some reasons dreamed up and loony. You really are a childish bunch. The problem with many people here it is always binary. You are considered on a side if you call into question extremist positions here. Where did I say the US was right, nationalist? I called out the corrupt Maduro regime and China and Russia for enabling them for dubious reasons both economic and political. I did not say anywhere the US is right. I did say the US has been marginalized and only until recently having more effect with Venezuelan meddling. I did not try to dismiss the pre-Chavez colonialism did I or did you not read that far? Nope, all of you who take your typical anti-American pro alternative are wrong. This currently is about something that is beyond fixing by what is fair and just. This will be a battle to clean up a mess that all sides contributed to. The Maduro regime needs to go for regional security reasons. The regime is a corrupt military narco regime that no longer is in the majority’s best interest. China and Russia should stay because they have interests in Venezuela. The US should be part of the rebuilding of Venezuela because it has vital interest in the region.

    “Venezuela: America’s 68th Regime-Change Disaster”
    https://tinyurl.com/y6zeasd8

    “In his masterpiece, Killing Hope: US Military and C.I.A. Interventions Since World War II, William Blum, who died in December 2018, wrote chapter-length accounts of 55 US regime change operations against countries around the world, from China (1945-1960s) to Haiti (1986-1994). Noam Chomsky’s blurb on the back of the latest edition says simply, “Far and away the best book on the topic.”

    “We agree. If you have not read it, please do. It will give you a clearer context for what is happening in Venezuela today, and a better understanding of the world you are living in.”

    “While Venezuelans face poverty, preventable diseases, malnutrition and open threats of war by US officials, those same US officials and their corporate sponsors are looking at an almost irresistible gold mine if they can bring Venezuela to its knees: a fire sale of its oil industry to foreign oil companies and the privatization of many other sectors of its economy, from hydroelectric power plants to iron, aluminum and, yes, actual gold mines. This is not speculation. It is what the US’s new puppet, Juan Guaido, has reportedly promised his American backers if they can overthrow Venezuela’s elected government and install him in the presidential palace.”

    “The most valuable way that the US can help is to stop making the Venezuelan economy and people scream (on all sides), by lifting its sanctions and abandoning its failed and catastrophic regime change operation in Venezuela. But the only things that will force such a radical change in US policy are public outrage, education and organizing, and international solidarity with the people of Venezuela.”
