THE LOW-HANGING FRUITCAKES

Nutty as a fruitcake they say.

Well, Donald J. Trump has certainly proven he merits the title.

Dumbo Donnie thought #Venezuela was a case of low hanging fruit that he could easily snatch.

Trump has been proven extremely wrong-headed in this notion.
THE LOW-HANGING FRUITCAKES

Dumbo Donnie appears to have been told by the whiter shade of #Venezuelans living high on the hog in East Caracas that Nicolas Maduro would be a pushover.

A cakewalk was in prospect.

But wait, do you recall that other so-called “cakewalk”, in Iraq?
THE LOW-HANGING FRUITCAKES

Dumbo Donnie got suckered, taken for a ride.

The fascistic business folk of East Caracas told him a whole bunch of porky pies such as the one about the majority in #Venezuela wanting Nicolas Maduro replaced.

This is of course a barefaced lie.

1/ #Venezuela’s failed uprising has deepened the country's political deadlock and raised the likelihood of domestic or international escalation.

Our statement explains its immediate impact and proposes a way forward.
crisisgroup.org/latin-america-…
2/ The revolt appears to have been poorly conceived and easily subdued, leaving National Assembly chair @jguaido and his regional allies, including the #US, looking outmanoeuvred.
3/ On the chavista side of the divide, President #Maduro and his international partners may well feel empowered and emboldened, with little incentive to engage in talks with a disorganised and ineffectual opposition.

Venezuela has emerged from the US attacks on its electrical system.
By @MaxBlumenthal
Terrible news for Little @marcorubio @AmbJohnBolton & Guadio’s gang, but great news for the people of Caracas:

The city’s free Metro system is coming back on line as Venezuela recovers from its curiously timed electricity outages.

I was on #SimonBolivar international bridge connecting #Venezuela and #Colombia. #Thread

1. The '#humanitarianaid volunteers' were violent and masked up, unlike any humanitarians I have ever seen.

They also appeared to be aided (no pun intended) by the Colombian authorities.
2. What appeared to be a hand gun was seen with the 'volunteers' on the Colombian side. Y would #Colombian authorites allow a boy masked up to past them with a gun, was it really all about #humanitarianaid?

Or were they sending some kids to do their dirty work. #JustAsking?
3. The local community on the #Venezuela side were supporting their army- cheering on every push back. Clearing the stones after they were thrown at the soldiers and bringing water etc to soldiers on the front line

They didn't seem too welcoming the '#humanitarianaid volunteers'

I recently met with a desperate #Venezuela family about to overstay tourist visa. Dad (professional), mom (professional) and kid. Staying w/ relatives & desperate to find a way not to return to political threats, hunger, utter lack of services, including medical care...
Why me? I have #HumanRights background, a university job & #LatinAmerica experience. Basically bupkus in the terrordome politics of desperate people in Trumpland. But I bought them coffee (and a snowman cookie for a young 'un) and listened...
What separates me from them? Increasingly little. They were upper middle class and now scrounge for off the books manual labor. Would they be killed if they returned? Not immediately -- but slowly: no work, no food, no medicine, no hope. They've become #Refugees ...

The least noted #refugee crisis is the flow of more than 1 million people OUT of #Venezuela, many of whom have had no real medical care for years amid collapse of V's govt syst. Unvaccinated, they are spreading #measles where they go. Example: Colombia: rcnradio.com/salud/casos-de…
[cont] At least 11 countries are affected by #measles due to the mass migration of more than 1 million #Venezuelans -- many of whom have never been properly vaccinated thanks to V govt catastrophe.
medicalxpress.com/news/2018-06-m…
Inside #Venezuela hospitals are filling up with #measles patients -- mostly unvaccinated children and young adults. This is what happens when government ceases to perform basic public health functions for its people.
