The Obama Administration, which in 2009 provided backing for the coup that overthrew the progressive democratic President of Honduras and put into power a junta of oligarchs (Hillary Clinton's other big foreign policy disaster); a rerun as it turned out for the bloody coup that replaced the corrupt but democratically elected Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, ad installed in Kiev a rabidly anti-Russian, equally corrupt, right wing extremist Government, thus sparking Ukraine’s civil war against the ethnic Russians in eastern Ukraine. These people had voted 90% for the pro - Moscow Yanukovych. Obama and his bloodthirsty little queer sidekicks are now, and not for the first time, trying to overthrow Venezuela’s democratically elected President, Nicolas Maduro.
Now I don't know enough about Venezuela's internal politics to be able to say whether President Maduro is a good leader or not, all I know is his government is Venexueala's choice and who rules in Cracas is a matter for the Venezuela's electorate to decide. It certainly has nothing to do with the corrupt, drug abusing former rent boy who is President of the United States of America.
In spite of that, on Monday March 9th Reuters headlined "U.S. Declares Venezuela a National Security Threat, Sanctions Top Officials," and their report gives its closing word to an opposition politician, whom Obama supports and who says: “It’s not a problem with Venezuela or with Venezuelans; it’s a problem for the corrupt ones” (i.e., Maduro and his Government).
In other words, while we know that the increasingly insane Obama, a man who believed from the outset he had been elected President Of The Entire Universe And Everything Else Besides, now thinks his job description requires him to go bullying his way round the world, imposing on sovereign nations leaders from the politically factions that have shown they will suck up to him and do America's bidding.
Apologists for American fascism would argue Obama is only trying to replace a ‘corrupt’ head-of-state. Unfortunately he seems to specialise in replacing 'corrupt' democratically elected heads of state, overturning the democratic process and replacing it with brutal tyranny in the case of Ukraine or failed state chaos as has happened in Libya.
And we must not forget Egypt, where the corrupt, brutal military dictatorship of Honsi Mubarack was replaced by an even more corrupt, brutal Islamic fundamentalist regime until the Egyptian military, appalled at the slaughter of Christians and people who were 'the wrong sort of Muslim', overthrew the Muslim Brotherhood regime and returned to the kind of relatively secular dictatorship the Mubarak regime practiced.
The White House justified an Executive Order (Presidential Decree, Obama's preferred method of lawmaking as he has not patience with the democratic process) issued on March 9th, which declared according to the press release, “President Obama declares a national emergency with respect to the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States posed by the situation in Venezuela. This is bullshit of course, Venezuela poses not threat to the USA
Specifically, the E.O. is aimed at neutralising those determined by the Department of the Treasury, in consultation with the Department of State, to be involved in actions or policies that undermine democratic processes or institutions. Not the democratic processes or institutions of the United States you should note, but those of the sovereign state of Venezuela, which are actually nothing to do with Barack Hussein Obama.
The Executive Order states that the existing Government of Venezuela limits human rights and is corrupt. Quite how this “constitutes an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat,” is not clearly explained.
On 14 February 2015, President Maduro had thwarted a coup-attempt against him that was engineered by the Governments of Canada and the UK. This came almost exactly a year after he had already thwarted such an attempt by the U.S. Government. In December 2013, the Maduro Government presented detailed evidence that the U.S. was planning a coup against him.
On 15 January 2015, Maduro met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the Kremlin. The Obama Administration is, of course, committed to provoking Putin into starting World War Three.
President Obama is also trying to bring down Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad. In 2011, he had bombed away the regime of Libya’s President Muammar Gaddafi. Both Assad and Gaddafi also are/were allies of Russia, as is Iran. The Obama Administration is now assisting ISIS in its war against Assad, even while bombing ISIS.
And yet the supporters of the globalist, anti - democracy left as still trying to convince us this war worshipping arsehole is the peacemaker and conciliator who will lead the world to an era of harmonious prosperity. Well I suppose he might if people are prepared to accept that slavery to American Corporations represents any kind of freedom.RELATED POSTS:
