March to restore constitutional order & democracy in #Venezuela set to begin at 10am #Caracas time (9am Eastern in the U.S.).
Important to know context behind todays events. They are entirely rooted in the constitution of #Venezuela 1/4
The “election” held by Maduro was not constitutionally valid;therefore Maduro is not a legitimate President

Under Constitution when a vacancy exists in the Presidency,the President of National Assembly assumes role of President & within 45 days calls for new elections 2/4
Todays protests are not simply people trying to get rid of a dictator. These marches are asking the military & other organisms of government to recognize the legitimate government as prescribed by the Constitution they swore to uphold. 3/4

#Venezuela 🇻🇪: today #Maduro is being inaugurated for a second term following "elections" which were internationally condemned for being unfair.

Leaders of other authoritarian or leftist Latin-American states such as #Cuba, #Nicaragua and #Bolivia are present at the event
#Venezuela 🇻🇪: as #Maduro is being inaugurated pro-regime collectivos are touring the center of #Caracas, passing by the National Assembly in order to intimidate the opposition
#Venezuela 🇻🇪: #Maduro is becoming increasingly isolated as #Peru and #Paraguay have broken all diplomatic ties with his regime in protest of last year's "elections".

The #OAS has also voted not to recognize his presidency as it enters a second term.

Counting down The Top Ten Worst UN Moments of 2018.
10. Report of Alfred de Zayas, first UN rights expert to visit #Venezuela, portrayed the Maduro regime as a victim—the West being the perpetrator—and failed to mention the term “political prisoners” once.…
9. #Turkey’s Erdogan regime—which arrests, jails & persecutes human rights activists, journalists, and dissidents—was elected Vice-Chair of @UN Committee on Non-Governmental Organizations, which oversees the activity of human rights activists at the UN.…
8. The UN let #Cuba cheat on a mandatory review of its human rights record by submitting hundreds of fake NGO submissions hailing the repressive regime's human rights record—including submissions from the "Cuban Federation of Canine Sports" & the "Cuban Plastic Surgery Society."

Last year, UN Human Rights Council "Special Rapporteur" Philip Alston investigated America's failed social justice system, and now he's examining Britain. Meanwhile, the only UNHRC Special Rapporteurs who've reported on Cuba & Venezuela, praised their social justice systems.
They may point to real problems, but it's clear these UNHRC experts seek to impose their own far-left economic policies by declaring that these are obligations of international human rights law. But in real life, millions have fled the countries that they hold up as models.
Here's how the system works:
1. Tyrannies go along in creating UN mandates to attack the West.
2. Social justice groups critical of the West feed their reports to the UN monitors & invite them to visit.
3. Tyrannies & social justice warriors both win; world's worst victims lose.

First time in a decade: UN to debate condemnation of #Cuba's human rights abuses, in 8 amendments presented by USA. Here are the 8 reasons why Cuban human rights activists love @NikkiHaley:

1. "Expressing serious concern over Cuba's complete absence of judicial independence..."
2. "Expressing serious concern that in Cuba the absence of women from the most
powerful decision-making bodies severely undermines the [UN's declared goal] to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls by countering deeply rooted gender-based discrimination..."
3. "Expressing serious concern that in Cuba [there is a] trade union monopoly of the
Central Union of Cuban Workers, a prohibition on the right to strike, restrictions on collective bargaining and agreements..."

A propósito de las nuevas regulaciones de viajes #Cuba - #Panamá, hemos visto un error en algunos medios de prensa que hablan de más de 71000 cubanos visitando Panamá en 2017, cuando la cifra correcta es solo alrededor de la mitad de eso: unos 35900 (hilo)
(hilo) Creemos que la equivocación puede venir de sumar entradas + salidas:
35968 entradas + 35806 salidas = 71774 viajes

...y como cualquiera sabe, ir y venir de un lugar no te convierte en 2 viajeros 😁
(hilo) Otra posible explicación es que alguien haya tomado el 71774 que Panamá publica como total para Cuba sin fijarse que el indicador se llama "Movimientos migratorios por PCM" (Puntos de Control Migratorio) o sea, movimientos de entrada o salida, que tampoco = cant. personas

“Now, #doctors and #scientists say such unconventional weapons may have caused the baffling symptoms and ailments that, starting in late 2016, hit more than three dozen American diplomats and family members in #Cuba and #China.”

(1) #DOS #FBI #DOJ #USMIL know exactly what weapons were used on the #Diplomats in #Cuba and #China.

Indeed, one can buy them here in the USA on the internet, and the #DirectedEnergyWeapons platform(s) governments have at their disposal are even more sophisticated.
(2) These weapons can be deployed from satellites, aircraft, and vehicles.

They can be mounted on towers and structures, and and also come in hand-held models.

Unfortunately folks, as the #FBI #DHS #NSA #DIA #GIA #USMIL already know, #5G "communications" systems ....
(3) can be weaponized to do the same damage that the more portable units can do. These systems go by a variety of names and operate via a variety of electromagnetic and radiological mechanisms.

They also have devastating physical, psychological and physiological effects ....

1) CDC joins investigation into ‘sonic attacks’ in Cuba & China. I hope the new CDC director is on the up and up, because others weren't. Add to this, Kenneth Merten is joining the task force. Does @SecPompeo know that Merten is still a Clinton lapdog?…
2) The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has joined the investigation into the sonic incidents that have injured U.S. diplomats and have confounded U.S. officials and scientists since first discovered last year in Cuba.
3) Ambassador Kenneth Merten, an acting principal deputy assistant secretary of State, told the House Foreign Affairs Committee Wednesday that the CDC has joined a task force created by Secretary of State @SecPompeo that is investigating the unexplained health incidents.

I've been trying to figure out what the "Intelligence-Gathering Vessel" was that the @RoyalNavy (infuriatingly) wouldn't name or post pictures of that crossed the English Channel on Christmas Eve. Because of the timing, I strongly suspected it was the Viktor Leonov AGI. #SpyShip
I can now say, with a high degree of confidence, a Russian Navy AGI stopped in Trinidad & Tabago 2018-01-11 to restock, and they have likely left by now. I suspect, but cannot yet confirm, that AGI is the Viktor Leonov|Виктор Леонов, the Vishnya-class intelligence ship. #SpyShip
You may remember the collective freak-out when there was a Russian Navy intelligence gathering vessel off the US East Coast last Feb-Mar. That info was Secret(or higher)-classified Navy intelligence, leaked by the Pentagon, but there was no investigation or pursuit of the leaker.
