Hillary Clinton: A lying schemer, in Wall Street's pocket. A war monger. She's likely not up to the physical demands of the job of President of the United States. Going to appoint bank deregulating, wage and environment busting "Free Trader" Billy (The Goat) Clinton as Economy Czar.
Donald Trump : Running for a job he probably doesn't want , and yet he's in range to get it. Feared by Wall Street and mainstream opinion leaders, but definitely preferred by most of them over Bernie Sanders.
Venezuela, in spite of its own problems continues to give essential aid to Cuba, Haiti and Nicaragua. Cut off this aid without replacing it and you get a new catastrophe and a refugee crisis.
I blog about Venezuela a lot. I know that Venezuela is not on most of the world's minds but it seems to be heading for a real catastrophe this time. I forsee a probable invasion by the United States and / or other countries with the conniving and support of the World's Exceptional and Indispensable Nation very soon, probably while Barack Obama will still be President. There is a document circulating that was purportedly published by the United States Southern Military Command that maps out a twelve point strategy to overthrow the government of Venezuela. The New York Times poo- poos the report, stating that it's impossible that the United States military would be planning an invasion of Venezuela. (I suppose it would be absurd - after all for the United States to invade a small weaker nation would be so out of character😇😇😇) .
We do have two declarations that Venezuela poses a threat to our country signed by President Obama and
issued by the White House.
It's known that Senator John F. Kennedy was briefed on the plans to invade Cuba as a Presidential candidate, and that Richard Nixon carried on as supervisor of the Bay of Pigs invasion after Kennedy was sworn into the presidency. I wouldn't doubt that both Clinton and Trump are in the loop and sworn to secrecy.
Venezuela has many problems and they can seem to be daunting. The opposition and the world capitalist media have every reason to exaggerate the food and medical crisis in Venezuela, which I'd be the first to say is very serious. The government and its supporters have every reason to minimize the crisis. Simply put an eventual open US or US backed invasion would come under the pretext of a humanitarian aid mission. There's no reason to doubt that US special forces are on the ground in Venezuela and that they'd be involved in"neutralizing" "fanatical" and armed government supporting militia and collectives, as is called for in the document. There are reports of assassinations of pro government activists in Venezuela.
Again, The New York Times asserts that this document is false. Given past US practice I find it incredibly naive to think that the United States would not, at the very least, have contingency plans regarding a military intervention in Venezuela.
