That's the Chilton's Guide to US imperialism. The next step after the "?" is loans from the World Bank that they can never pay off, c.f. John Perkins' "Confessions of An Economic Hitman."

Unreported 👹 Opposition Violence Continues in Venezuela
February 21, 2020

Venezuela’s opposition has a long history of burning government buildings, health clinics, and the local headquarters of the country's social missions. The violence continues, but these acts of opposition violence are rarely covered in the press.

Twenty-two schools have now been hit since the start of 2020—almost half of them in one day. Save the Children knows schools must be safe havens for children, even in a conflict zone, and is calling for an immediate cessation of hostilities.

Beyond Chutzpah: 🦍 US Charges Venezuela With Narco-Terrorism
By Roger D. Harris, Popular Resistance. US Attorney General Barr’s indictments on March 26 against the government of Venezuela for narco-terrorism go beyond chutzpah. For starters, William P. Barr was chief counsel for the CIA airline Southern Air Transport implicated in the 1980s for running illicit drugs and related narco-terrorism during Iran-Contra. The US charges of drug trafficking against Venezuela are the height of hypocrisy. The world’s leading source of heroin is US-occupied Afghanistan; the US is the world’s largest **** market.

🦅 US Senators Call For An End To The Blockade On Venezuela And Iran
By Staff, Alba Ciudad with OT content. A group of 11 Democratic senators demanded that the White House temporarily suspend the coercive measures imposed on Venezuela and Iran in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic. The senators sent a letter on Thursday to the secretary of the State Department, Mike Pompeo, and to the secretary of the Treasury, Steven Mnuchin, to request the suspension for 90 days and allow the reception of humanitarian assistance, Hispan TV reported.

Stop the Largest Naval War Practice in the World


War games and weapons shows have been halted and scaled back around the world since the coronavirus pandemic began, but the U.S. Navy has yet to cancel the biggest naval war rehearsal in the world -- and at a time when Trump is stirring up hatred for China!

Cases of coronavirus in the U.S. military, including on ships, were being reported ever faster until the 🐲 Pentagon banned such reporting. War rehearsals now endanger us all by making wars more likely and by spreading a deadly virus.

Please sign and share this petition to the U.S. Congress and Pentagon, created by retired Colonel 🕊 Ann Wright:

Stop the international Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) naval war practice in Hawaiian waters from June through August 2020. The war practices are provocative on a regional level and with the COVID-19 virus, military personnel arriving in Hawaii will endanger citizens of the isolated island state of Hawaii.

Agelbert NOTE: The following is textbook disinformation. The Venezuelan Navy Patrol Boat had hailed the Cruise ship for being unauthorized in those waters. The Cruise ship, nearly EMPTY of passengers, pretended to apologize. When the Venezuelan Patrol boat ordered the Cruise ship, which has a reinforced hull for dealing with icebergs, to go to a nearby port, said Cruise ship proceeded to RAM AND SINK the Venezuelan Patrol Boat. Then, to add insult to injury, the Cruise ship just left! The Venezuelan sailors were rescued by other Venezuelans that had been alerted to their plight.

Now read the series of bold faced LIES below. THIS is how propaganda that starts wars is pushed in our faces. The claim that the Venezuelan Patrol boat did the ramming is laughable, as it is clear from the stills in the video that the Cruise ship did it, no matter how they try to claim otherwise.

In this particular case, the Cruise ship was probably carrying something they did not want anyone to know about, meaning it was about contraband, not war provocation, but the US could pull something like this as a "justification" for war and invasion of Venezuela. >:(

I lined out the lie and put the truth in parentheses in the Orwellian headline below:

Venezuelan Navy Ship SINKS After (BEING RAMMED BY) Ramming Reinforced Cruise Liner In La Tortuga

A Venezuelan naval boat picked and lost a fight with a passenger cruise liner off the country's northern coast this week, ramming it several times before accidentally taking on water and sinking.

Columbia Cruise Services, the owner of the cruise liner, said the Venezuelan crew had fired shots and appeared to be trying to seize the civilian vessel, which was also an icebreaker. It described the move as an “act of aggression in international waters”.

The 122m RCGS Resolute is a luxury liner which sails under a Portuguese flag and is designed for voyages in Antarctica.

The cruise ship, which was carrying 32 crew and no passengers, was idling during maintenance on its way to the Dutch-owned island of Curacao.

Shortly after midnight, the ship was approached by the patrol boat Naiguata which allegedly ordered it to sail for a Venezuelan island, Isla de Margarita.

All 44 members of the naval crew were rescued by the local authorities, but the Spanish-built vessel, which cost $US350m, sank without trace in waters 180m deep.

AGelbert COMMENT: This is TOTAL BULLSHIT. It was the Cruise ship carrying contraband that rammed the Venezuelan boat, you lying bastards! AND, it was the Cruise ship that sailed away and left the Venezuelan sailors to drown. They were rescued by others alerted to their plight.

The TRUTH is at the 1:06:00 time mark on the following talk show: 🔊

A Global Ceasefire Is Advancing

RootsAction Team info@rootsaction.org via mail.salsalabs.net

Apr 12, 2020, 2:12 PM

Since the Secretary General of the United Nations proposed a global ceasefire during the coronavirus pandemic, several dozen nations have expressed support, and several have ceased firing.

Wars have paused in Yemen, the Philippines, Colombia, and Cameroon.

Please join with RootsAction and World BEYOND War in urging all governments to commit to and abide by the golabl ceasefire.

Add your name here.

Of course, there is no sane reason why a global ceasefire shouldn't be extended indefinitely, with military resources gradually redirected into human and environmental needs.

But before we can extend the global ceasefire, we have to get it started -- everywhere.


Thanks for all you do! Stay safe!

18 Years After US Coup Against Venezuela, Pompeo And Abrams Warn Another Is Coming
By Alan Macleod, Mintpress News. On the eighteenth anniversary of the U.S.-backed coup against the government of Venezuela, senior American officials announced that the people should prepare for another imminent push. “The goal is to replace [President Nicolas] Maduro’s illegitimate dictatorship with a legitimate transitional government that can hold free and fair elections to represent all Venezuelans. It is time for Maduro to go,” announced Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. On Saturday the eleventh, exactly 18 years after the U.S. supported a briefly successful coup against Hugo Chavez, American envoy for Venezuela and coup specialist... -more-


Act Now To Stop The US War On Venezuela
By Popular Resistance. As the United States government escalates coercive economic warfare (sanctions) on Venezuela and sends warships to its shores, people in the United States, in solidarity with Venezuelans, are taking action to stop this insanity. Venezuelan activists sent a video message to us. Here are actions you can take - post a photo of yourself holding a sign and tag it with #FightCovidNotVenezuela; sign the open letter to the US government and the United Nations; attend the webinar, "An Inside View of Resistance to US Imperialism in Venezuela and How to Build International Solidarity," on April 22; and... -more-

We Need Solidarity, Not Sanctions
By John Scales Avery, Transcend Media. According to the United Nations Charter, only the Security Council may impose sanctions. No individual nation may do so. Nevertheless, the United States currently imposes economic sanctions on Iran, North Korea, Sudan, Cuba, Venezuela, Belarus, Burundi, Central African Republic, China, Comoros, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Myanmar, Nicaragua, Papua New Guinea, Russia, Somalia, South Sudan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Venezuela, Yemen, and Zimbabwe.  -more-

Popular Power Will Not Be Quarantined!
By Ricardo Vaz, Venezuelanalysis. Analysing different future scenarios is a very common exercise for Venezuelan political organisations. With constant US pressure, imagining situations of foreign invasions, military coups, early elections, etc. is natural. Leftist organisations look to describe these scenarios before envisioning what their eventual role would be. Nevertheless, no one was prepared to face the coronavirus. While in the abovementioned examples revolutionary organisations have no problems figuring out where they stand, and where their enemies stand, this context changes everything. The enemy at hand is “invisible,” it cannot... -more-
